Here’s a summary of some of the things I learned and published this week.
You can follow my daily readings as they happen here. Below are a selected few, with commentary, from the past week.
- One of the polls that indicate that support for teachers is greater than support for the government in the current education system in Ontario.
- I suspect that, in order for this seat belt initiative to be success, it will have to start with younger students and let them grow into it being a way of life.
- I’m sad to say that some of these things were believed by yours truly when he was a kid.
- I can’t believe that someone would even question this. It doesn’t matter whether it’s the law or not, you’re not going to hit them.
- There’s a real surge in the interest of DIY and Google is there to help. Would this app have a home in a makerspace?
- Finally! The answer to the question about “You guys“. Well, at least it’s one suggestion.
- There are a number of reasons to get rid of them, not the least being that they just look silly.
- It’s touted as a Chromebook activity but it’s a good proofreading activity no matter what technology you’re using.
- As an educator, I find this abhorrent. But when you see rallies and the support that he gets, there sure are a lot of people that seem ready to get into bullying.
- It’s not fair to compare these robots to normal people. Maybe get some people who have been drinking for a fair contest.
- There’s so much that we can learn from other school systems, particularly in Europe. Here’s it’s about sustainability.
- I’m going to have to sit down and see if I can figure this out. Hopefully, McDonald’s has $1 coffee as an alternative.
- I’m torn as to whether this is good or bad marketing. I do like my burgers but not with this appearance.
- Silly? Yes, but it’s still a fun thing to read if you like to see some Ford-bashing.
- I can’t imagine the relief that they people are feeling, being released from quarantine.
- So many people like to bash the Google Chrome browser but the good news is that we end up with a better browsing experience and that’s not bad.

There was an upgrade to Chrome OS last night. The thing about Chrome is that the upgrades are there whether you want them or not.
This upgrade is less than perfect.
I like to keep my shelf on the left side of the screen so that I have as much room for reading as possible. But, when I log in, the shelf returned itself to the bottom.
A reboot put it back to where it should be.
After putting the computer to sleep and then waking it, the shelf is back to the bottom again.
Looks like this upgrade is somewhat less than perfect.

Those flowers I bought last week didn’t last long.
