A Kickstarter Campaign That Will Help Teachers, Students, and Parents.

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 12.12.04 PMThis is my latest project. Promoting a new startup company that is going to do amazing things in the field of education resources.

Lyceum Education was started to create a suite of flipped classroom videos that most teachers would love to use but don’t have the time to create.  The flipped classroom works on the theory that the old model of teaching a lesson during the day and practicing the lessons at home during homework is backwards.  Students should learn the lesson the night before and practice the lesson with the teacher present to help them with any problems they may have. This way provides faster learning for the students and less frustration when some part of the lesson isn’t understood.

Lyceum seeks to create a suite of lesson for middle and high school that will cover all the lesson of the four core subjects (English, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science) that can be used eventually to allow almost any teacher to work in a completely flipped classroom model.

These lessons can also be used by any home schooling parent to supplement their own at home education by offering quality lessons for subjects that may require specific knowledge the parent may not be comfortable with.

As these lessons will only cover the knowledge and comprehension levels of learning they do not replace the need for a teacher or parent in the education process, they only allow them more time to focus on the deeper level  learning that student need adult help with to progress to their full potential.

With the 900,000 we are requesting your help to raise, we will be able to buy the equipment needed to film and edit these video and the salaries needed to support 4 teachers and 1 video editor for 2 years while we create the initial part of the entire suite.  We believe that in 2 years we can provide enough lessons to make this marketable and then allow sales to fund the further creation of all the lessons teachers could possibly need.

This is something I feel extremely passionate about and I know that the people involved in this project will do amazing things.

Please share this kickstarter campaign with your friends and families and donate if you can.

Apparently All My Republican Friends Hate Me

The juvenile conspiracy theories that liberals come up with when faced with gay conservatives are getting more and more absurd. Liberals seem to assume that the Republican party is a seething mass of homophobia, just looking for someone to lynch, no matter how many Republicans befriend gay conservatives.

The other day I was told “The only reason conservatives wont insult you is because they need their token members like you gays to say “hey look, we have gayz too!” Are you that gullible??”

Santorum, the Marxist who called himself a conservative

So we all know Santorum doesn’t understand why he lost and that he loves to continue the liberal lie that Romney wasn’t a good candidate and the delusion that he in any way, shape, or form is electable.  But what about his economic ideas?  Well, they’re possibly the only thing worse than his self-assessment.  Now honestly a waste of oxygen like Santorum would probably not be worth the time I’m about to spend on him, and he’s not, but the problem is that while he himself has no chance of ever getting into power, the fact is that his is a walking symbol of everything wrong with the Republican Party—unlike a real conservative he has risen to prominence by claiming to be a conservative, and his ideas have nothing to do with being a conservative, but you hear them in the words of other idiots within the party (former governors from Arkansas and Alaska come to mind) but Rick states these errors in logic and ideas so clearly (because he’s more clueless than most) so he makes an easy target.  The point here is that Rick Santorum isn’t the problem, he’s an annoying idiot who at most does the conservative movement a little PR damage, the real danger are is his ideas which regrettably have made some inroads with the Populist factions of the party—these ideas need to be shown to be to the lies they are, confronted, and ripped from this party, this nation, and this world before they do more harm.

Mitt Romney: Obama immigration plan could cause border rush

For any of my followers or friends that read that awful Breitbart article that completely misquoted Romney on this…

Originally posted on Fusion:

President Obama’s decision to allow millions of undocumented immigrants to apply to remain in the U.S. could spark a rush at the southern border, according to Mitt Romney.

“He’s giving people false hope,” the 2012 Republican presidential nominee said last week during an interview with Univision. “He’s also communicating to people outside this country, ‘Hey, get into the United States illegally and stay, because they’ll always let you stay.'”

As many as 5 million people could seek a three-year reprieve from deportation and work permits under Obama’s executive action, as long as they have resided in the U.S. for over five years and have U.S. citizen or legal resident children.

“This isn’t amnesty, or legalization, or even a pathway to citizenship,” Obama said Tuesday during a speech in Chicago. “It also doesn’t apply to anyone who has come to this country recently, or might come illegally in the future—because…

Does Taylor Swift Realize Most of That “Sexist” Criticism Came From Feminists?

downloadYou know, it’s probably starting to feel like I’m not a fan of Taylor Swift, what with all the criticizing I’ve done of her lately.

The truth is that, while I remain a die-hard fan of her music and I think she’s a pretty great person who does good things and means well, she’s also got a lot of curious misconceptions about the world around her and its treatment of her.

Part of this is that she’s latched on to the new fad of “feminism” and it really really shows in her interactions with the media these days. I’m mostly putting this down to her age (we may be the same age, but Taylor’s experience with the world and my experience with the world are as different as chalk and cheese), but that’s not going to stop me from pointing out the flaws in her reasoning.*

Here’s what Taylor had to say recently.

The Decision To Die

It’s something I’ve considered in the past. Something I’ve discussed in a purely hypothetical sense.

Would I be able to make decision to end my own life, if continuing to live meant a continued loss of my quality of life and the reality that the remainder of my life would otherwise be spent in pain and suffering?

For me it’s a hypothetical. My family has no history of brain cancer, breast cancer, or any of the dozen other debilitating diseases that could create a situation for me where I felt that assisted suicide was something I would seriously consider, but for Brittany Maynard that choice is not hypothetical. In fact that decision has already been made.

As I write this article on October 9th, she is less than a month away from the decisive moment and I know it must be horribly difficult for her and her family to know that after November 1st she will no longer be with them.

But I understand her decision.
