I found this while watching a You Tube video my cousin sent about pets reuniting with their owners. Out here on the Big Island pets are often lost or abandoned due to the flooding, volcano and even earthquake events. She sends links about this all the time. smile

I'm not a FB person but when watching what she sent me, I found this and wanted to share.......

Learning about life can come from so many places and things. Some of which is humorous and still a learning event. smile

Enjoy!

Calling all teachers..........

Found this interesting video from my cousin: Bal-A-Vis-X

It's a short video about a teaching technique being taught to all school age students. Encourages focus, coordination and leaves less room for bad behavior.

Let me know what you think. smile

So I'm confused. I read this article: Some states are banning teachers from crowd funding for school supplies - WHY!???!?!

Do the schools want the teachers to fail their students? It is said the average teacher spends about $479.00 a year on school supplies. Who of us working folks can afford to spend that on our work supplies?

Article on 2019 Average Teacher's salary. NOTE: With COL (cost of living) increases, the pay brings home less than prior years (in some cases). Average teacher's salary comparison

From talking to teachers in different states, it seems like somebodies are out to make teacher's fail in their jobs. Can we identify who these persons/groups are and find out their motives? This is very sad. frown Very upsetting. angry Outright outrageous. very_angry

Input from teachers in our MA community is appreciated.

I can see both sides. I’ve been the teacher asking the parents to bring supplies and the exhausted parent running out late at night after first and second shift wondering why millennial children need brand new scissors and whatever else adds up to 479 every year. Of course my kids didn’t like my attitude those days. I think it could become another chore for already overworked teachers.

I vote for the folks who promise teacher raises but I get outvoted. My church meets at a local school and we spend a lot putting together gift bags of supplies for all the teachers so I try do do my part.

Hi NED,

Then my question is why are crowd funding for supplies a banned thing? Out here one HS principal makes about $160K a year. Now doesn't that sound like a bit much for a salary? I think teachers deserve more pay but some DOE's (dept of education) units pay some administrators too much and it's teaching staff too little. I see how hard these teachers work and we entrust our children's education to them for years. Sigh the obvious thing to do obviously is not getting done. frown

jmo,
Orchid

So my cousin sent me the following message. I don't know how to copy and paste this message from her FB, so I'm retyping it.......

Has your dog gone missing? It's time to air your dirty laundry.

So this needs to be shared!
After 5 days I had given up hope of finding my dogs when a random stranger told me to air my dirty laundry so the dogs could catch the scent and find their way home.

Wednesday night I hung out a sheet and Thursday morning they were home.

Everyone needs to know this trick.

Please share!


What a novel way to help your pet come home. smile

FYI: Interesting report from USGS about earthquakes and volcanos.

Volcanic Activity Summary: Ash eruption at Shishaldin continues and has intensified as shown in satellite and lightning data. Satellite data suggest the ash cloud is as high as 27,000 ft asl and drifting east-northeast. Aviation Color Code is RED and Alert Level is WARNING.

The National Weather Service has issued a SIGMET for this activity (https://www.weather.gov/aawu/).

Earthquakes: USGS.gov 3 earthquakes in a similar latitude

Sinabank Indonesia 6.2 - Loc: 2.333n / 96.347 E
Kimbe, Papua New Guinea 6.0 - Loc: 5.155S / 151.258E
Indios, Puerto rico 6.4 - Loc: 17.916N / 66.813W

Puerto Earthquake update

In case you know of anyone in those areas. We have one MAer near one of those areas and she said she and her family were ok. Whew........

So in addition to the other types of disturbing news rumbling in other areas of this planet for other reasons, these unpreventable eruptions are definitely concerning.
