PANTHER PAUSE: Math and the power of yet
“When I think about math I cringe and feel anxiety.” “A lot of people have said to me, ‘Math isn’t your thing, but that’s OK because something else will be your thing.’” “I feel really stupid. I feel like I don’t belong in any math classroom. When I think about...

Today’s political scene filled with snake oil salesmen
Many years ago and a lifetime away I was movie mogul. No, not the type that owns a production studio and is seen sitting atop piles of money. As a young man, I worked in and eventually managed a couple of motion picture theaters just as the video age came to the forefront of our lives...

Living in the new world

The first step is admitting you have a problem
No, it’s not to the point, in which I have receipts from when I went out to eat from 2005 or dust bunnies that have gathered over the last six months, but if I wanted to find baby toys my daughters played with (now ages 8 and 5) I could find them in our basement. When we moved into...
