GO4ST8Physics Our organization was developed over twenty years ago by physics teachers for persons interested in physics education in the state of Minnesota. There are no dues, just an interest in sharing ideas that can improve physics education and the persons attending the meetings. There are usually 4 meetings a year. We have had people attend who live in northern Iowa or northern Minnesota and we try to accommodate these participants by scheduling meetings from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM on Saturdays (the 2nd Saturday of odd-numbered months). There is a newsletter sent to some schools. Participants are always welcomed and are encouraged to bring others with them. Steve Ethen GO4ST8Physics

Les enseignants ont kidnappé le débat sur le harcèlement à l'école Ceux qui dénoncent le clip de prévention produit par l'Éducation nationale, jugé «caricatural et méprisant», sont hors sujet. C'est l'histoire d'un rapt. Le 2 novembre, le ministère de l'Education nationale a rendu public le clip de prévention contre le harcèlement scolaire coproduit par Mélissa Theuriau. Presque aussitôt, des profs (et non pas «les profs», comme on l'a lu et entendu) ont manifesté leur mécontentement en dénonçant une «vidéo caricaturale et méprisante». Ils ont surtout, à gros coups de communiqués rageurs publiés par des syndicats pourtant souvent désaccordés, réussi à détourner les projecteurs du sujet principal (la souffrance des enfants harcelés) pour les braquer vers leur propre cause: le supplice enduré par des enseignants se sentant stigmatisés par une vidéo d'une minute qui ne s'adresse même pas à eux. C'est le premier problème de cette réaction. Allégorie Ce que semblent avoir oublié les profs qui s’insurgent contre ce spot, c’est son caractère allégorique.

A few months ago, my four year-old son went to a classmate's birthday. The party was superhero-themed and the loot bags were packed with cute little superhero trinkets, including temporary tattoos. One little girl, let's call her Izzy, put hers on immediately. "LOOK," Izzy yelled, running up to everyone in turn. The other children and parents in attendance oohed and ahed over her forearm. Later, as we parents were watching our cake-smeared kids run around in a sugar-induced frenzy, one of the other mothers turned to me and said, "Isn't it funny that [your son] loves My Little Pony so much? Not really knowing how to answer, I said, "I don't think it's funny. "Oh, sure," she said. I've been thinking a lot about this episode, along with all the other weird remarks people have made about my kid's love for all things Rainbow Dash. Little girls are, for the most part, taught that women can be anything. We see the devaluation of femininity play out in tons of different ways.

Bon, une fois n’est pas coutume, cet article-là, je l’écris surtout avec mes tripes (et en le démarrant je ne sais pas exactement où je vais avec). D’ailleurs ça introduit bien le sujet. D’habitude justement, je rédige mes articles un peu comme des dissertations. Avec un plan (construit à partir d’une liste d’idées) dans la tête, des parties, des sous-partes, des transitions, une intro, une conclusion. Il faut dire que des disserts et des commentaires, comme plein de gens, j’en ai fait depuis mes 15 ans jusqu’à la fin de ma licence. C’est devenu naturel chez moi d’écrire comme ça. D’ailleurs, j’ai souvent été considéré comme un intello, dans ma scolarité. Évidemment, le côté « intello » n’aide pas pour éviter le harcèlement, la mise à l’écart et l’effet plante verte. Et pourtant, au collège comme au lycée, je ne faisais pas réellement partie des bons élèves. C’était une erreur, parce que j’ai (évidemment) continué à ramer dans les matières scientifiques.

Introduction STC Motion and Design is a 15-lesson kit intended for students in grade 5. It introduces students to the physics of motion and the importance of technological design. More… Big Ideas This kit is focused on both science content ideas and science process skills. Force as a push or pull More… Foundational Images Along with a variety of drawings, sketches, and multiviews, three of our foundational images are used in conjunction with the STC Motion and Design kit: Vectors , Particles and the Magnifier tool. To get a better idea of how some of these foundational images can be used in the classroom, refer to the Motion and Design roadmap below.

Climate Change Will Make UK Coastline More Dangerous, Expert Says The UK's coastlines will become even more dangerous because of climate change, an expert has told Sky News. Two more people died today on Britain's shores - a man scuba diving in Cornwall and a 17-year-old boy in the waters near Sunderland. Last week, five young men were drowned at Camber Sands. The weekend before, seven people died in different parts of waters around the UK. Rip currents - fast moving, narrow channels of water that can drag swimmers out to sea - are not becoming more frequent or more vicious. But our changing climate is making them more unpredictable, according to Dr Simon Boxall, an oceanographer at the University of Southampton. Video: How To Survive A Rip Tide Dr Boxall told Sky News: "Climate change means not just more winter storms, but more summer storms as well, so you have an ever moving topography. "Rip currents need an escape and so they work on the topography of the sea floor.

Italy avalanche: 'Many dead' in hotel Rigopiano in Abruzzo Image copyright EPA An Italian rescue official has said that a number of people have been killed after a hotel was hit by an avalanche, apparently triggered by an earthquake on Wednesday. Rescuers battled overnight to reach the hotel close to the Gran Sasso mountain in the Abruzzo region. "There are many deaths," Antonio Crocetta, the head of a mountain rescue team, was quoted as saying. Up to 30 people were in the Rigopiano hotel at the time of the avalanche. The roof partly collapsed and local residents in Farindola alerted emergency services. Rescuers said at least 20 tourists and seven staff had been inside the Rigopiano hotel when it was hit by the avalanche. The mountainous region of Central Italy was hit by a succession of four earthquakes on Wednesday and further tremors were reported overnight. The quakes came after the regions of Abruzzo, Marche and Lazio were hit by days of heavy snow. It was already known that one person had died and another was reported missing.

Family Fitness & Physical Activity

60 Minutes a Day
The 1996 U.S. Surgeon General's "Report on Physical Activity and Health" is a landmark document that emphasizes the important link between physical fitness and American health. In a 2011 research report, the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports sought to broaden the definition of physical fitness laid down in the Surgeon General's report, subcategorizing skill-related fitness as "those components of physical fitness that have a relationship with enhanced performance in sports and motor skills." The components of skill-related fitness include agility, balance, coordination, power, speed and reaction time. Agility, as defined by the President's Council, refers to the ability to change your entire body position in space rapidly with accuracy and speed. Balance is your ability to maintain equilibrium, or control your body's position in space. A combination of strength and speed, power is the ability to exert maximum force in a quick, explosive burst. Lose Weight. 5 Skill Related Components of Physical Fitness
