Generosity

I asked family members and friends to contribute to my effort to start the AP World History program next year by pleading for copies of Jared Diamond's "Guns, Germs, and Steel." Happily, enough people contribute that everyone enrolled in the class will get a book. Now I just need to get book plates! Thank you to everyone who was so generous to me and my crazy, wonderful students. We'll be reading the book over the summer and, I hope, having a few great conversations about it. I hope I'll be able to follow the thank-yous up with some more interesting, like a video of a class discussion or something.

happy to have been able to help!

hope your students are more enthusiastic than my latin students were. they didnt even care to learn about their own language, which i kept before them.

one student could not even identify the future tense in a paragraph written in English. i do wonder why kids are not even interested in their own language. major mystery!

I'm not a dating guru; I never claim to be that. But I do know how to get girls, I know how to get dates with girls and i just want to share that with other guys because I can't stand to see them going to bits over this thing. You see, all of these guys, without exception, have nothing wrong with them at all. They're interesting, fun guys with every chance of dating some pretty hot chicks. They just don't know how to go about it. And that's not because they're dumb. It's just because no one has ever educated them.

This kind of thing used to happen to me so much, these guys in despair over the online dating game, that I realised there was a real need for some way of putting this situation right. A way of setting the record straight. I felt that what I had learned over the years, should be passed on, taught to others to save them going through this experience. After all, it's not as if I had some kind of precious secret that I wanted to jealously guard. I just have the knowledge accumulated through lots of experience backed up with scientific research. So it is necessary to get more FB likes and increase twitter followers to keep your business going. After buying some targeted fans on facebook and twitter, I found that the browse volume is larger in my online shop and the credibility in my online shop is much higher. Buy Facebook Fans and you may see a major growth in your business. More and more businesses are realizing the ability of Facebook Likes when it involves promoting and creating cash. And there are plenty of girls out there, so there's no need for me to guard myself from the competition! Why should every guy coming to online dating have to keep re-inventing the wheel from scratch? there's no reason.
