It occurred to me that one possible way of getting there would be if Trump voters, including ones not normally Republican, voted for the whole ticket, while anti-Trump Republicans confirmed their party loyalty by voting for every Republican on the ticket other than Trump. Matthew Henry takes these verses together and they seem to have a connectedness. A true friend’s concern for your success or failure and, moreso, your welfare, is of much more value than a person’s friendship who just hangs out with you for a few laughs. The Proverbs go on to say that a neighbor near to you, someone you can reach quickly and can talk to without waiting, is better to turn to in a crisis or a tragedy than even a brother who is far away. So, it is better to have a friend who gives you good and sound counsel than one who is just for trivial matters and a friend who lives close by is better to count on in time of trouble than a brother or sister who lives far away. In addition, the Proverbs point out that such a friend you should not turn your back on. Today was amazing and chaotic and wonderful. The Guardian thinks it should be Jane Austen on the new bank notes, as she created the character of Elinor Dashwood. That could rub off a little. We have been unable to find his actual words as there seem to be three versions: From the Guardian: "Why are we still talking about Jack the Ripper over a century on? Because of the dramatic background: the fog, the cobbled streets … it fascinates them. With the Moors it's the same: Wuthering Heights, Hound of the Baskervilles, that sort of thing. "Mine's the same. "The very rich are different from you and me," said F. Scott Fitzgerald. In academic medicine, even the top executives' aides appear to be different from you and me. The latest anecdote to surface, courtesy the San Francisco Chronicle, is about the pay and perks given to the Executive Assistant of UC President Robert Dynes. His current assistant, "who handles Dynes' correspondence and appointment, among other duties," followed Dynes when he moved from San Diego to UC headquarters. The Assistant's salary apparently exceeds that given to some university professors. One history professor noted that the Executive Assistant's salary exceeded his starting salary as a full professor. Her salary also exceeds the California Governor's senior executive assistant's salary. My Dear Friends, There is an experience that I have only had twice in my life – but both of these times left a lasting impression on me. I am referring to being in Israel on Yom Kippur. To be in Israel on Yom Kippur is to experience silence – or as close as you can find silence in an urban environment. There are no cars, no radios or Televisions. To arrive in Keilhau, Germany, is to begin at the beginning: the origins of the Kindergarten and of Froebelian education are there. Froebel famously surveyed the beautiful, lush green German landscape with its small and dilapidated village and said, 'Here is a valley for education. ' Much of what we now take for granted about early education dates back to Froebel’s revolutionary work there. It was Froebel who believed that young children should learn through play and through first-hand experiences with natural materials like sand and water, and that physical education was important in school. Froebel put the relationship between educator and child at the heart of learning, and saw each child as in individual whose wishes and choices should be respected. These were revolutionary ideas – so revolutionary that both his school and his kindergarten were banned at different times by the Prussian authorities. I am not Froebel trained, but I do hold a deep respect for his life and work, and I also believe in the importance of engaging with the past in order to understand the present. A classroom with a view: the Froebel school in Keilhau DEAD OR ALIVE? Keilhau lies at the end of the longest cul-de-sac in Germany, and some might feel that Froebelian education itself is a dead-end: historically interesting, but on a road to nowhere. Yesterday was wet and gross in Dallas, so I spent most of the day hanging out in the Convention Center, but the real fun didn't start until the Expo Hall opened! I have a bunch of photos to share with you, some are of the great freebies that we got, and some are of awesome products that I was introduced to. I am going to do my best to highlight the exhibitors that wowed me on the first night. The one thing that I love about the opening of the NAEYC Exhibit Hall is the atmosphere. The room is full of genuine appreciation for teachers, which is absolutely amazing! The first booth that really jumped out at me was Hedstrom. I have wiggle seats at school that we use as stepping stones, Hedstrom actually has sensory stepping stones. At school we have multiple sets of bumpy balls, Hedstrom has the bumpy balls, they also have scented bumpy balls, bumpy balls with different noise makers inside, and bumpy shapes! I was really impressed with their pricing, teachers and parents can absolutely afford these products, and their catalog is going home with me! The Scholastic booth is always a must visit. .
