Congrats especially to the Girls team finishing 3rd out of 12 and qualifying 6 athletes to go to state. Boys finished 9th out of 13 and qualified 4 athletes for state.
They must be better at falling than you, Rhys
I have no idea if the gorillas on horseback were men or women. It was a bit surprising but worked ok when the road was blocked off, but when they were back once Hwy 40 was open and they were riding on the sidewalk, it was very uncomfortable how they were interacting with pedestrians; made worse that you couldn't see the riders' eyes to know if they saw you or were going to run you down. I was happy to get past them.
Just to clarify, I did not call in the complaint - I was well home and away from downtown by that point, but they made me uncomfortable earlier and I could see why people might call it in as dangerous.
If you see the ground coming towards your face, turn your head.
For walking on ice, I specifically keep my hands in my pockets so I don't reach out and break my wrists. Much better to fall on my butt or hip or even shoulder than wrist.
There is no where for these kids to seek in the district. We shove all sorts of other things at them when understanding how technology works is something that might actually be useful for them.
The problem is not on the website, it is in the smartphone apps for both iOS and Android.
Great that the district is using all tools available to help students learn. However, if we really want to support our students to be high wage earners and productive members of the global economy, then we need to be teaching them the skills they need to create technology, not just use it. One of the most lucrative and understaffed job areas today is computer programmers and electrical engineers. Our schools do almost nothing to teach kids the logic and programming skills they need to go on to college in computer programming or similar fields. Our high school graduation requirements do not include a introductory programming class (should be part of Bus/Career/Tech) which would not only spark some students to continue in this field, but give every student a basic understanding of how these computers that will continue to rule their lives actually work. Our Science requirements have no intro electrical engineering, which would also provide a basic understanding of the computers in our lives. We need to do more than have our students be technology users if we want to get them ready for the real world.
Steamboat Today - you guys need to look at how your own content shows up in your own app. This story was completely butchered in a way that made it impossible to read with the sidebar about Tatum starting as the second paragraph (with no headline) and running inline in the article. Embarrassing that your own content does not show up correctly in your own app.
Thanks Rhys. Lots of unreasonable persistence and a bit of luck :)
