Why we remember more by reading – especially print – than from audio or video
Print versus digital reading
May 3, 2021
When reading texts of several hundred words or more, learning is generally more successful when it’s on paper than onscreen. A cascade of research confirms this finding. … Continue reading “Why we remember more by reading – especially print – than from audio or video”
1:50 “This is a very simple solution to a very big problem. Unfortunately, a lot of kids are put on antidepressant medication, when I think they should just take some vitamin D.”
DATA: Depressed adolescents in a case-series were low in vitamin D and depression was ameliorated by vitamin D supplementation
A study I read recently talked about how vitamin D levels could be linked to depressed teens. A few symptoms linked to a vitamin D deficiency are sadness, hopelessness, loss of interest, loss of concentration, and even thoughts of suicide.
Potential causes of a vitamin D deficiency in teens:
• Not getting enough sun
• Not consuming enough vegetables (not enough magnesium)
• Snacking (insulin resistance blocks vitamin D)
• A high carb diet (fructose blocks vitamin D)
• Obesity (increases the need for vitamin D)
• Darker skin blocks vitamin D absorption
Other symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency:
• Achy joints
• Low back pain
• Vitamin D (10,000 IUs)
• Vitamin K2
Dr. Leana Wen, CNN medical analyst and former president of Planned Parenthood, admitted that masking her son during the COVID-19 pandemic stifled his language development and social life. She wrote in the Washington Post that she won’t be sending her children to school with masks this fall, which is in stark contrast to her previous ardent support of strict pandemic policies. She wrote that both of her children, aged five and two, have been vaccinated. Wen previously said the unvaccinated shouldn’t be able to leave their homes, showed support for vaccine passports, and called for schools to be closed for months at a time. She now says that containment of COVID-19 was not “reachable’ and the virus is here to stay.
..it’s undoubtedly necessary to note that there are many women doing great, even heroic, things for our society, and that many men are working to wreck it. But for those who associate women with instinctively protecting children or with being supportive of a traditionally religious life, this era in American history has provided something of a shock.
“Given that the word ‘God’ in the text of the Pledge of Allegiance is capitalized,” Holden told his fellow board members. “The text is clearly referring to the Judeo-Christian god and therefore, it does not include any other face such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, all of which are practiced by our staff and students at FPS.”
SHOCKING! Anchorage now has a woke superintendent and school board, with just one exception, the amazing Dave Donley.
The people must be WAKING UP now, despite the leftist media blackout! This made me cry — so utterly disgusting and unnecessary! Com’ on Hillside people, stand up, stand tall — fight the good fight in love! We can do better. No masks ever again. High enough vitamin D levels are the answer. No fear. Love! Walk in unity! Oust this woke, unqualified woke superintendent and woke, but not awake school board. Never again, please!
Suzanne Downing nails it!:
A land acknowledgement is a political statement that forces people to confess that they are colonizers and that the land they are on belongs to someone else — tribes, ancestors of original settlers. Others are simply “visitors from elsewhere.”
Minute-19:30: The school board runs under Roberts’s rules of order, which is more appropriate for a book club. Legislatures run under Mason’s Manual.

CRT Built Into Civic Bill: According to National Review the Biden administration is pushing the Civics Secures Democracy Act (CSDA) so they can push Critical Race Theory (CRT) on every public school in the country. Over a six-year period, this $6 billion pot of competitive grant money will create a de facto national curriculum — just like Common Core. States desperate to tap into the federal gravy train will have to tailor their civics and history grant proposals to the Biden administration’s liking. West Point is already pushing CRT down the throats of cadets.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday struck down a Maine education policy that made K-12 schools with religious instruction ineligible for taxpayer-backed tuition aid, continuing the conservative majority court’s general trend of ruling for religious interests.

…some games seem sweet and innocent at first with cute characters and fun challenges, but after the player gets more involved, it can evolve into something darker down the road.

During the quarantine time, many kids started to play online video games.
We had personal experience with this ourselves and so my oldest daughter and I did some research, engaged in some of these games, and talked with people who played them. I felt I needed to share this information. Continue reading “Many online games lead kids toward sexualization and the occult – Alaska Watchman”

Many readers have noted the extent to which the teachers’ unions idea of “science” has dictated federal, state and local governments’ policies regarding school closures, masking, and other Covid-related issues.
There has been quite the kerfuffle lately about how the teachers’ unions got to essentially write the Centers for Disease Control’s national policy on school closures. Allegedly, it went so far as the unions having been able to actually dictate the wording of the policy memorandum issued by CDC.

Alaska is ranked dead last in the U.S. in national reading scores for both low-income and upper/middle-income students. And before you think that the rest of the state is dragging ASD [Anchorage School District] scores down, guess again. ASD is ranked 22nd in the state in language arts out of 54 school districts.
