‘Sigil’ and the Ambiguity of Words and Their Meanings — Part One

By Omar Cherif I always knew that being trilingual is helpful in writing and in communication in general. Other than thinking in different languages, the ability to word your thoughts in a variety of ways, and having a wider vocabulary to choose from there are also some other benefits.

Why Common Core Must Be Opposed

The Common Core educational initiative, according to its official website, strives to provide “a set of high-quality academic standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy.” Its critics, however, see it very differently. This opposition, led by professors of education, mathematicians, former members of the Department of Education, the largest teachers’ union in the country, and countless other professionals, is seeking to derail this educational agenda before it can fully take over schools across the United States. Why are these groups opposed to Common Core, and what is Common Core’s real purpose? Find out more in this week’s BoilingFrogsPost.com Eyeopener report with James Corbett.

Higher Knowledge: Enriching & Enabling Factor

What factor reconciles the needs of different nations while sharing the earth’s resources in an ecologically sound manner? The balancing factor is higher knowledge or knowledge that is spiritual in nature and tied to our collective higher destiny. It must be added to the mix and used with our other capacities to find solutions. Higher knowledge will not replace common sense, experience, hard work or economic imperative. That is not its function. It is an added capacity which integrates and works alongside others.

These Seattle Teachers Boycotted Standardized Testing—and Sparked a Nationwide Movement

Life felt eerie for teachers at Seattle’s Garfield High in the days following their unanimous declaration of rebellion last winter against standardized testing. Their historic press conference, held on a Thursday, had captured the attention of national TV and print media. But by midday Monday, they still hadn’t heard a word from their own school district’s leadership. Then an email from Superintendent José Banda hit their in-boxes. Compared with a starker threat issued a week later, with warnings of 10-day unpaid suspensions, this note was softly worded. But its message was clear: a teacher boycott of the district’s most-hated test—the MAP, short for Measures of Academic Progress—was intolerable. Jittery teachers had little time to digest the implications before the lunch bell sounded, accompanied by an announcement over the intercom: a Florida teacher had ordered them a stack of hot pizzas, as a gesture of solidarity…
