#FERGUSON ATOP KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE: #MIKEBROWN

“Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide.”
― Napoleon

As for the “aye” votes, they received just $212,824 from environmental interests, or, on average, just $887 across the entire two years of the 2012 election cycle. Obviously there are partisan reasons behind the way the votes broke down, but an analysis of donations to the 19 Democrats who crossed party lines shows they also received jim decicco from the oil and gas industry and were shunned by environmental donors. Supporters of the bill included 221 Republicans, who took an average of $59,198 from the oil and gas industry, and 19 Democrats, who took an average of $32,089. Those 19 Democrats, on average, only collected $2,335 from environmental donors, compared to the $7,575 received by their Democratic colleagues who voted the other way.   MORE

“If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.

[Inaugural Address, January 20 1961]”
― John F. Kennedy

“If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.”

Jefferson’s statement in the Declaration of Independence, “…whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…,”

Martin Luther King, Jr.’ “One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”

Unless you become more watchful in your states and check the spirit of monopoly and thirst for exclusive privileges you will in the end find that… the control over your dearest interests has passed into the hands of these corporations.

Ferguson Land grab

Multinational corporations do control. They control the politicians. They control the media. They control the pattern of consumption, entertainment, thinking. They’re destroying the planet and laying the foundation for violent outbursts and racial division.

Many of the benefits from keeping terrorism fear levels high are obvious. Private corporations suck up massive amounts of Homeland Security cash as long as that fear persists, while government officials in the National Security and Surveillance State can claim unlimited powers and operate with unlimited secrecy and no accountability.

The only difference between the Republican and Democratic parties is the velocities with which their knees hit the floor when corporations knock on their door. That’s the only difference.

I think the people should have a right to boycott whoever they want to boycott without the government making them into criminals and try to protect corporations from people. They should protect people from corporations.

As a source of innovation, an engine of our economy, and a forum for our political discourse, the Internet can only work if it’s a truly level playing field. Small businesses should have the same ability to reach customers as powerful corporations. A blogger should have the same ability to find an audience as a media conglomerate.
Al Franken

 

It would exempt all modifications to existing cross-border pipelines, even major expansions, from federal review. The bill also allows for unlimited exports of liquefied natural gas to anywhere in the world as long as the LNG passes through Canada or Mexico.

It passed 238 to 173.

221 Republicans and 17 Democrats voted for it. 172 Democrats and 1 Republican voted against it. The sole Republican was Walter Jones (NC-03).

A social contract is the way out of this dilemma for corporations that want to lead in the 21st century by showing consumers how seriously they take customer loyalty and goodwill.

Invest In Marijuana:  You can watch the presentation here.

 

“Regardless of your feelings about legalizing marijuana two things are abundantly clear: This is an industry that isn’t going away anytime soon… and there is A LOT of money up for grabs for those who recognize this trend early on.”

“The end of marijuana prohibition in America will be one of the biggest and most important social and financial stories of our lifetimes.”

CALIFORNIA STUDENT UNION  : Our struggles are one. Our victories are one. : : Over the years, we students have struggled on our individual campuses in the fight against the deterioration of our education and our futures. It’s time to come together and begin forming a movement toward student unionism. From Chile, to Canada, to Brazil, student unions have proven time and time again that students en masse have the power to organize and win!

When Nimrod built the tower of Babel, its purpose was to study the stars. Already, Scientific literature of the Babylonians included treatises on astronomy, mathematics, medicine, chemistry, botany, and nature about 2500 BC. Even now, a great university which taught all the highly advanced knowledge of the arts, sciences, medicine, technology, social power, and mathematics. Politically, Nimrod’s tomb, already discovered, became the spoils to Bush Administration (Halliburton) http://tinyurl.com/MathNimrodBC

religious freedom and tolerance

The political and religious leader Roger Williams (c. 1603-1683) is best remembered for founding the state of Rhode Island and advocating separation of church and state in Colonial America. His views on religious freedom and tolerance, coupled with his disapproval of the practice of confiscating land from Native Americans, earned him the wrath of his church and banishment from the colony. Williams and his followers settled on Narragansett Bay, where they purchased land from the Narragansett Indians and established a new colony governed by the principles of religious liberty and separation of church and state. Rhode Island became a haven for Baptists, Quakers, Jews and other religious minorities. Nearly a century after his death, Williams’ notion of a “wall of separation” between church and state inspired the founders of the United States, who incorporated it into the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Algebra or Texas Prison

Algebra or Texas Prison.

Math occurs in so many careers and in daily life.

Here’s a couple of thoughts for you:

People who work in Agriculture try to maximize produce and would need to know about mixture problems.

What’s the right amount of seed to use, or fertilizer, pesticides, water?

Accountants/Bankers/all businesses use spreadsheet packages. Who’s writing the formulas? This is an algebra skill. Profit/loss translates to knowledge of percents and decimals.

 Art of any kind (think people in marketing, too) requires visualization. Many of the pleasing designs use “the golden ratio.

 Architects use sophisticated software to build online virtual models of buildings, houses, and so on. They certainly need visualization skills–those spatial aspects students study in math, which they might practice using online virtual manipulatives. Certainly architects need understanding of geometric and algebraic concepts for making physical models of the real thing.

Athletes can improve their performance by knowing about mathematics (e.g., as it relates to motion, vectors, geometric shapes, nutrition/health, torque, etc.)

Auto industry: How about all the math used in the auto industry? Cars contain sophisticated computers.

Even now, crash tests are done with simulations.

Biologists use statistics and probability.

Builders need to measure accurately to cut those boards, pour those floors (think proportions in getting cement to the right consistency–too much water and the structure breaks). That’s where knowledge of fractions and decimals comes in.  They would need to know about areas, volumes, slopes, angle measures, distance, ratios, and so on.

Cooks, even in the big restaurants, need measurement skills, and proportions for converting recipes for larger or smaller quantities. But there are software packages to help with that and databases for storing those recipes and spreadsheet packages for inventories, profit/loss, and so on.  You need to understand formulas in algebra to design those spreadsheets.

Engineers play a role in the design and modification of products we use.

Geologists use math models to study the earth: daily weather patterns, earthquake predictions, and so on.

Medical doctors study the human body and must be able to properly prescribe doses of medicines.

 Manufacturing jobs require math skills: “[T]oday’s manufacturing work requires strong math skills — not just adding and subtracting, but a good grasp of fractions, decimals and basic trigonometry. And job applicants who want to go into manufacturing often don’t have what it takes” (Boodhoo, 2012, para. 2).

 For manufacturing jobs, workers brush up on math.

Stock brokers: Anyone interested in the stock market? Positive and negative numbers are used to indicate what’s happening on the market. Gain of so many points, or loss of so many points. Graphing programs (tech part) can be used to create the visual displays. Of course, knowledge of data analysis is needed.

Surveyors use measurement tools and GPS systems.

Tradesmen of all kinds use math to estimate job costs, and to deal with the technical aspects of their jobs.

 People in the Military use simulations for training. Programmers need math skills to design those environments. Then think of other virtual environments like Second Life–who programs those? Everything in Second Life is designed with basic prims, which are geometric shapes that are placed and stretched to get whatever you see in the virtual worlds.

 

The list goes on and on.

 

 

Algebra or Texas Prison

 


Studies have shown that the child not introduced to algebra by 4th grade is in line for the school to prison prison pipeline supported by Teachers/Cerberus/Freedom Group/NRA/Prison Industry.stop-math-hate-
Keep calm and learn your way inmath

So texas cancels algebra II, instead of moving it into the elementary Level.
You can’t have a typical math class without finding at least one student daydreaming, fidgeting, or doodling in their notebooks, impatiently waiting for the class to be over. At some point, you’ve most likely heard kids complain saying “I’m never going to use this stuff ever again.

Empathise, never sympathise with a math-hating child forced to graph linear equations against his will. Like it or not, cool math skills painfully acquired in school is to save a child’s Life.
1. A child who tries to solve a math problem quickly learns that he needs to follow a specific series of steps in an orderly manner without making a single error.

2. Math equips you with problem-solving skills that help you analyze real life situations and arrive at logical solutions based on the given data.
3. Math teaches us many significant skills that we use every single day without even realizing it. For instance, a working knowledge of fractions is useful while interpreting road signs that tell us the distance we must cover to reach a destination.
