.rse: I was curious about Keith Morrison of Dateline, mainly how long he'd been on the program because my husband saw him a few times flying out of Tulsa on a business trip. I was trying to remember when it happened. Anyway, I discovered Morrison has written severalbooks on education. Is this book one you've heard of and is it one of those brainwashing educational ones? School Leadership and Complexity Theory Front Cover Keith R. B. Morrison Psychology Press, 2002 - Education - 215 pages 0 Reviews Interest in complexity theory, a relation of chaos theory, has become well established in the business community in recent years. Complexity theory argues that systems are complex interactions of many parts which cannot be predicted by accepted linear equations. In this book, Keith Morrison introduces complexity theory to the world of education, drawing out its implications for school leadership. He suggests that schools are complex, nonlinear and unpredictable systems, and that this impacts significantly within them. As schools race to keep up with change and innovation, he suggests that it is possible to find order without control and to lead without coercion. Key areas: * schools and self-organisation * leadership for self-organisation * supporting emergence through the learning organisation * schools and their environments * communication * fitness landscapes This book will be of interest to headteachers and middle managers, and those on higher level courses in educational leadership and management.

anonamom and Miss Marple, About a week ago anonamom posted an article with 'Deluge' (I think) in the title. The theme linked the French Revolution to what is happening here in the USA. I wanted to read it again today but couldn't remember what site it was on -- do either one of you remember or have a link for it? Thanks, Joan

Matt, I am so sorry to hear about your daughter. May God bless her with recovery. Joan
"All of this illustrates a simple truth that everyone understood all along, both Republicans and Democrats. When Republicans win, the 54 lawyers at Perkins Coie like Marc Elias will leave no stone unturned to snatch a win from defeat. Just ask Norm Coleman in Minnesota. "But when Republicans exercise the same prerogative after an election, democracy is under threat. The depths of hypocrisy are bottomless." I'm telling ya, just like the quote I posted this morning over at 2, someone's got to learn to fight louder and harder: "Josey Wales: Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is."

I eat peanut butter and celery for breakfast. It's refreshing (especially if you don't use lots of peanut butter) -- anyway, it's good for a light snack breakfast before a hard yoga flow class.

clarice: "I always refuse to fill out the race/ethnicity question on medical forms writing in "none of the govt's business" No matter how it's worded on race/ethnicity, I always write 'American' ... always makes me smile to myself. :) F*ck them.

Goodness, Another Bob, history tells us that man is evil and corrupt -- the Nazis, concentration camps, the Berlin Wall, the North Koreans, North Vietnam, Pol Pot in Cambodia, but I never, ever thought we'd see vermin in our streets like we did this summer. Our newspaper has been purchased by a group that prints a lot of USA Today stories. Every day I see lies in it -- one 'story' yesterday analyzing events of 2020 for me ended with something about Trump's lies about the mostly peaceful protests of the summer. Those reporters saw the same things I did -- and, I'll tell you I only watched a few minutes of the riots, looting, and burning, and most of it was on brief videos online that accompanied conservative stories, I didn't watch 30 seconds of any television news on the major networks or CNNMSNBC or the other filth. Peaceful protests ... that's another crazy bit that I didn't mention. Guess I should stop. I apologize for my tirade. It becomes difficult sometimes to deal with the insanity of the past four years from the left.

And something else ... across the world countries are treating covid patients with HCQ, zinc, and Azithromycin successfully. I read that link, earlier before anonamom posted it. I found it in the comments to the article she linked earlier. I didn't understand a lot of the graphs, etc. on the hcqmeta site, but I did find this in a study in an institute in Marseille, France, "we initiated early and massive screening for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Hospitalization and early treatment with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin (HCQ-AZ) was proposed for the positive cases." And their conclusion on 3,737 patients: "Treatment with HCQ-AZ was associated with a decreased risk of transfer to ICU or death (Hazard ratio (HR) 0.18 0.11–0.27), decreased risk of hospitalization ≥10 days (odds ratios 95% CI 0.38 0.27–0.54) and shorter duration of viral shedding (time to negative PCR: HR 1.29 1.17–1.42). QTc prolongation (>60 ms) was observed in 25 patients (0.67%) leading to the cessation of treatment in 12 cases including 3 cases with QTc> 500 ms. No cases of torsade de pointe or sudden death were observed. Although this is a retrospective analysis, results suggest that early diagnosis, early isolation and early treatment of COVID-19 patients, with at least 3 days of HCQ-AZ lead to a significantly better clinical outcome and a faster viral load reduction than other treatments." THIS SHOULD BE FRONT PAGE NEWS ALL OVER THE WORLD. Our government, our leaders, our media prefer that people, especially the elderly and/or the sickest among us, die rather than give one freaking inch to President Donald J. Trump. There is real festering poison in over half of our country's hearts and minds -- and they want us to kiss and make up?! People have suffered and died because of their sick hatred for a political opponent. Screw them.

I didn't even mention Lin Wood and his crazy talk. Day by day his tweets have become weirder and weirder. Pompeo ... what is he thinking about? The one man I've admired who hasn't, so far, gone looney tunes and defected or turned on Trump rewrites the definition of a word -- swagger. I kept reading the hashtag comments and I fought myself agreeing with the people from the left -- swagger does not mean serving with pride, humility, and professionalism. I didn't mention Barr. I had so much faith in Barr. He came on the scene saying all of the right things, and my, oh my, did he let us down. Durham. Not a squeak out of him. The great Bull Durham has turned into a pip squeak. The Arkansas prosecutor -- weren't we led to believe that a jury out there was gathering evidence about corruption? He up and quit a week or so ago -- or announced he was legging it out of town. Comey. Brennan. Clapper. Strzak. Page. Yates. Rice. aaaaarrrrrrrrrggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh -- the list goes on and on -- all of them smirking and winning -- damnit -- they're winners! We're the losers.

cathyf: WTF is wrong with people -- I'll second that and raise you one WTF is wrong with people?! ... I don't think I said that right :) -- cause I was 'playing poker' as far as crazy, fucked up people -- and since I don't play poker and have only seen it in movies don't think I got the vernacular correct. Poker doesn't really fit this except that since November 4, I've felt like I was living in crazy town. The kraken -- as much as I've admired Sidney Powell, why did she announce her biblical kraken cheating so loudly and publicly? The raid in Germany or Spain or somewhere in Europe where either the White Hats or the Black Hats won and grabbed the servers or voting booths or whatever ... what was that all about? A Seal team from Afghanistan fighting and one CIA guy being killed, except he was actually in Somalia or somewhere ... ? The Supreme Court ... the freaking Supreme Court that Trump and the majority leader loaded with Conservatives ?????????????? How did we end up with such craven cowardly, spineless turncoats? Cowards! Hideous, soft, excuses for impartial finders of fact. Honest Americans have been so betrayed by that group. Covid lockdowns. Masks. Riots. Statues being destroyed -- and we all stand around or sit watching it on tv with open mouths -- speechless at the perverted communists our universities are producing. And how about people like that mayor of NYC? What would make even half-wits elect a communist like him? He and his wife are communist millionaires. And the new DA or prosecutor or whatever he is in California -- changing what is a crime where the victim is the one who committed the crime. How did he get elected. Something corrupt has happened to the American people. Besides that, they are stupid.

Guess I'm going to have to take a few more sparkly Christmas ornaments off of the tree. My pulse started pounding, first over rancid G-M then on to globalists and then to history philosophers and on to our vain, passionately self-infatuated leaders (some elected, some not.) Don't know why I posted so much this morning. Sorry I muscled my way on this thread and took up so much space. :) But, I will be back ....
OL, 11:54: lol! Your post is why I love you. :)
Wow, tk, I just watched that last witness, the Georgia woman, blonde hair. Thanks for linking the hearing.
And when I read ... 'history is going to treat these men unkindly', I laugh. Also, when I read ... we all 'let this happen', we all sat back and 'let them take over', well, no we didn't. We worked. Hard. Long hours. We had surgeries. Were sick. Were responsible. Took care of our children. Voted. Had another surgery -- major ones. Had a bout of heart trouble. Donated money. Supported good, charitable causes. Paid our children's way through college. Had cancer and another surgery. A few years later had back surgery. Fought to take care of a sick parent. Begged a doctor or hospital, 'Please, can't you admit her?! -- She's sick!' and it turned out she was eaten up with cancer and Medicare didn't want to admit her because it meant 'they'd have to pay a little more' -- the average person didn't let "this happen". How were we to know snakes had slithered into our colleges and universities and taken them over while we were working hard and doing what we were supposed to be doing? Don't blame me.
OL, 11:37: Oh, my goodness, are you right about those guys! I can't see their names without my blood pressure shooting up -- I fight not to wish really bad things on all of them. Usually I just stop and say, 'just wish a plague of boils on them, Joan, just wish a plague of boils' wishing anything worse might make you a bad person. :) I'm convinced none of them are ever going to pay in any other way but general physical maladies we all are vulnerable to for their indifference to justice and how they contributed to what is coming for the rest of us.
rse, 10:21, from her post: "Given the massive benefits of kindness and prosocial behaviour, it is time we consciously promote and augment this naturally occurring prosocial circuit in human beings such that it is automatically activated. A spiral of numerous acts of kindness strengthens the circuit, and in return, the circuit induces individuals to perform more acts of kindness. As described earlier, adolescents and the youth are uniquely positioned because of the brain development that they undergo at that age." Have the people writing this ever read a newspaper? Or a book, 'Lord Of The Flies", or read statistics on human behavior? It doesn't matter how they try and rewire children's brains. It all boils down to: "I'm hungry. I need food. I don't have any food. Where's the closest food. My neighbor's house. Well, let me kick the door down, knock the old lady or man to the floor. Grab some food. While I'm at it, I need a few bucks. Where's her purse?" Eat or diel. Kill or be killed. That's the law of the jungle. There's too many jungles out in the nether regions. It will take more than brain rewiring to effect their goals.
Miss Marple, 9:38 a.m., last thread: ""Conspiracy" or not, this chick has been totally MIA. She hasn't even been mentioned in passing for weeks, by anyone in the administration OR the press. (Includes official portrait of Gina Haspel.) ============================= So, where is she? Inquiring minds like Miss Marple's would like to know." Bet she's investigating Trump, Trump Jr., Eric, Ivanka, Baron, Miller, and anyone else who's stuck by our President. She and Andrew Weissman are probably pen pals.
Yes, it becomes more and more easy to accept that our FBI doesn't seem to be the agency we believed stood for justice, truth, and security (of a sort). Even during the time of the 9/11 investigation, we were led to believe that it was Gorlick's wall that prevented the FBI 'jumping' on those evil terrorists 'already here', that there were good agents chasing the bad guys, it was just 'bad luck' the offices and other agencies weren't working as a team. It hasn't gotten any better, if it ever was as good as we were told. I haven't believed a word the FBI has put out since the Las Vegas murderous rampage of that 'one guy' who just happened to plot and kill and horrify a nation. No motive. ::shrug:: No reason. ::shrug:: FBI just walks away. Just like they have so many other times. Now we have the latest crazy. Bet we're soon ::shrugging:: away his bomb making and their perfunctory ignorance ::shrug/no record on him::, with their latest explanation: We're working on it. Bah!
anonamom: Your 5:08 was fun! I'm so glad you posted it. After I watched Sinatra, Rickles, and Carson, I clicked on Dennis Miller talking about Sinatra. Both my husband and I laughed out loud. What a great start to the day (albeit, a little late -- we got up at 6 a.m., but I didn't find your video until a few minutes ago.) Thank you for all that you bring to jom -- your knowledge and tips give me a feeling of confidence in facing the 'emotional' part of these past months of media stoking the fear and 'horror' of covid.

"To stand up to pressure that is illogical — in the sense it is not open to be logically argued against — and smile, sends that the battle for the mind has been engaged and they cannot win. "You can Karen me. You can even beat me up. But you cannot change my mind. I am the only individual allowed that privilege. Now go play with the other children until you grow up." I've been fighting this battle with my loved one for a year. I won't bend on morals. I won't bend on principles. It's been so hard. Trying to preserve a relationship that once was probably the closest and dearest in my life without budging ... because I refuse to see that Trump is a monster. I'll think ... don't you remember who raised you? Don't you realize what you're doing? Don't you know you can't break me? I think he needs to be examined by Ig. :)

We never used National Health when we lived in the UK. Private doctors. Private hospitals, always. For one reason especially at first, we didn't feel we were entitled to use their system. We'd never paid into it. We had insurance. Didn't seem right. Then later, of course, there were other reasons. Also, I'd always been against socialized medicine (socialized anything) and one of my main research papers in college was why I didn't believe in it. Guess I was born conservative. :)
