How’s this for a “stem” thought? Let schools get back to basics. Our basics were once world class. Our teachers shined because our students – not scores – shined brighter. Remember those great generations of America? Our young people were once not data nor numbers. They were messy and that was ok. They asked questions and that was ok. They made mistakes and that was ok. They were kids who knew respect, knew how to communicate, knew how to express themselves and they knew how to play. Play? What? What is that? What would the geniuses of the world be without the sparks of creativity it takes to make an advancement in science, technology, engineering and math? Our schools are becoming corporations. Skyscrapers without strong foundations. Hmm…foundations. Help us spread the word about creative companies such as this one. Let’s light a fire and maybe even make a change.

Those scientists in the movies were right all along. Birds are mini-dinos! Check out the video over at io9.com. I bet some kind of T-Rex / turkey hybrid will be the big star in Jurassic World.

Best news I’ve read in a while. :) Nike has announced that they indeed will be releasing shoes with self lacing systems (ala Back to the Future 2).
