The Paradox of Teacher Occupational Prestige and Teacher Income; A Few Observations

Posted on April 25, 2018 at 6:36pm 3 Comments

In some parts of the world, particularly in Eastern Asia, teachers are the most highly regarded occupational group or on par with physicians.  They seem less esteemed in the U.S.  Is that true, and what does it mean?

In 1947 the first report was issued from the University of Chicago’s  National Occupational Research Center (NORC) on what was termed…

Barbara Bush's Magnificent Farewell

Posted on April 21, 2018 at 11:05am 7 Comments

Barbara Bush’s funeral service today was beautiful.  Comments by family and friends about former First Lady Barbara Bush were gracious and revealed her humility, humor, and rock steady grip on matters of personal values and civility.

In recent weeks we have heard many anecdotes about how devoted George H. W. and Barbara were to each other.  They are remaining remnants of the "Greatest Generation".

St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston is a marvelous Gothic cathedral and the…

Observations on The Lancet, "Call the Midwife" and Global Healthcare

Posted on April 20, 2018 at 5:15am 5 Comments

In various episodes of the British television series, “Call the Midwife”, the doctor’s teenage son refers to an article that he had just read in The Lancet.  Perhaps most Americans have heard of The Lancet, but the numbers who know what kind of medical journal it is, are much less.

There is nothing quite like the journal in the U.S.

I have an on-line subscription to The Lancet.  Why “The Lancet”?  Why not JAMA or The New England Journal of Medicine?  Because it is free and…

SBA/RR Challenge, Current Events, Starbucks Memories and Starbucks Incident in Philly

Posted on April 19, 2018 at 4:45am 121 Comments

As most everyone knows now, an ugly incident took place in a Starbucks in Philadelphia. 

A Starbucks employee called 911 to complain that two men were in the store refusing to make a purchase.  Police were dispatched, arrested the men, and took them to the police station.

The men were black, and some immediately called the arrest a…

Rodney, I don't quite understand who all can read a  comment wall.  I'm glad we friended just in case you ever want to comment on my posts because I have had to limit comments on my posts to friends because there are some non-friends here who cannot respect my notice to them that they refrain from commenting in my posts' comment section and i will not not comment in theirs.

And oddly I cannot at moment find your comment to me to which I am now responding.  Anyway, I'm no longer young in body either, though not too much vision impaired yet, I make plenty of typos and ommissions.  I had thought we were already friended but when I went to msg you, saw we weren't.  

I wanted to bring this sentence you wrote in "Something Happening  .." to your attention thinking perhaps spell check had put in a word you didn't intend.

"Flake joins a growing number of Republicans voiding (voicing?) outspoken opposition to Trump."

That's as far I got reading the post so far, will read later in evening.  I like how you write and usually what you write about.  I too am a science major, chemistry and taught high school biology, chemistry, physical and ag sciences.  I sort of minored in philosophy and religion and though went through college without ever taking a history course, have since for decades been enchanted with such.  I'm not a mediator I'm pretty sure, especially when it comes to politics, and, when it comes to economics i'm no fan of capitalism, Wall Street or land speculation.

Thanks for your reply, see you in the line up, 

mokii

(the name moki ikom has no meaning that i know of other than what one may make of it, but i've used it in some form or another for many years on line,, i do know someone named moki and that's how it started for me)

Rodney, that "Pushback" can be hell. While at Marylhurst many decades ago, I studied Change Agentry, which gave me a systemic appreciation of why all our social agitation work was far more struggle than accomplishment...and always will be ;-)

Rodney, thanks for your invite.  I appreciate your ability to think in terms of the systems and apparatus that we rely upon to function. When its all said and done, it IS the system where our new insights have to be applied. I look forward to learning and sharing. mvn

I just posted and tried to implant a link. Hope I made it work correctly. Ah, scrolling above, I don't think I did. Next time!

As to your question, yes, I spoke at the Eugene/Springfield UU. Twice, in fact. Once on military issues and another time on UU'ism - a two-fold path. What's your association?

Thanks, Rodney....once question, is there a way to contact your friends on here without leaving a public comment?  Lots to get used to ...

There's a party going on with tunes, flicks, and chat here and at Open Salon! Help us build it out of  the ashes which O.S. machinery created with slow loads, etc.? We'd love to have you.

I'm not sure why you arent seeing the 'forgot password' option on sign in.  Try this link:  

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/signIn?target=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2F

just below the "sign in" button you should see a link for "i forgot my password"

if the link doesnt appear there, try this one:

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/requestPasswordReset?previousUrl=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2Fmain%2Fauthorization%2FsignIn%3Ftarget%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Foursalon.ning.com%252F

if none of this works, please let me know and i will make inquiries about it.  Also, sorry for the delay in responding.

thanks,

lorianne
