It's odd that many, if not most, Thanksgiving Turkey recipes still recommend washing the bird even though researchers have found that to be a very bad idea that won't do anything to kill the bacteria that may be on the bird. Plus with modern processing methods it's absolutely unnecessary.
This dude puts a serious spotlight on the new Common Core education standards, why they won't improve education in this country and is a very targeted argument against just about everything that the so-called education reform movement stands for. http://www.youtube.com/watch...

That teachers get 2 months of paid time off a year has to be one of the more sinister myths spread about the profession. They are only paid for the days they teach plus the 10 or so holidays they get.
