The Way Kids Learn and The Way We Teach Them

We need to use data (electronic data) to learn because it is part of our neural network. I found this on where I belong to a social network called Classroom 2.0 Isn't this the way we need to be teaching; this is the way these digital natives learn.

Please add your thoughts by leaving a comment here. I genuinely value all opinions.

Apple iPhone Video

I love this Apple iPhone video. What an amazing unit. It makes me want to buy Apple stock. Then I keep watching and want to sell Apple stock short. Maybe I should do a straddle with put and call options to hedge my bets. Maybe... I'll just keep thinking about it.

Times Have Changed In Many Ways For The Better

Talk about social injustices. Take a look at this letter that was discovered by a lady who kept it for 70 years. They don't hire women because only men work there. That is why they don't hire women! Can you believe they would do that and actually put it in writing? They did not have the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1938.

Geothermal Heating and Air Conditioning

I have contacted several heating contractors about installing a ground source heat pump in my home. I live in a 125 year old house on a large lot which could easily accommodate a closed loop, horizontal, slinky coil but no contractor has called me back. How much do these systems cost? They are free if you live in your house long enough and/or sell your home and recoup the initial cost. Aren't there any contractors out there who will contact me about installing one of these?
Watch this funny video about the features and benefits of the system.

Diesel Is The Only Way To Go, Especially With Bluetec Engines

I drive a new 2006 MK5 Jetta TDI and love it. I can't figure out why everyone doesn't have one. The amount of money you will save on the cost of fuel will pay for the vehicle over time. Audi is made by VW as is Lamborghini as well as Bentley. I'm certain that Volkswagen will be astoundingly successful in the future. Volkswagen controls more than 50% of the diesel marketplace worldwide. I would recommend buying the stock which can be purchased as an American Depository Receipt (ADR) from any good brokerage firm. The new Bluetec TDI engine will be available in January 2008 on the new Jetta in all 50 States and in all other countries which sell them. I couldn't find a video that demonstrated the new engine in a VW so I offer this one about an Audi. Enjoy the ride!
