Please watch the video and respond to the question in the comments below: Note: This World History Two course runs from the year 1500-modern day. We will start the course with Empires and end the course learning about the twin “T’s” of modern society: Terrorism and Technology. Towards the end of the course we will make brief references to the Arab Spring and ongoing situation in the Ukraine (and any other World Event that happens). We will also watch an occasional and relevant John Green Video (yes, THAT John Green).

While purchasing some items at the local Food Lion, I ran across one of those haphazardly posted messages displayed only with a sad single piece of tape holding it up to a random post behind the cashier. It was a recall notice for McCormick Oregano. I was totally blown-away! What could possibly get in oregano that would cause it to be recalled?
A recent article on home automation caught my attention on the New Republic Website because my wife and I had considered some automation options but declined all of them (unless you include a programmable thermostat).
We grounded our considerations in history, current events, and current technology (or the lack thereof).
I am certain that very few people have favorite federal laws. After all, who wants to talk about federal legislation at a party (hint: I do). However, being a bit of a policy wonk and government guru, I enjoy reading and learning about federal laws. In fact, I actually have TWO federal laws that I consider to be my favorite. They both involve the stomach.
I’ve been tinkering with WordPress, blogging, and Web Development on and off for the past 15 years. I would start it and then stop it. Never really sure where to go or what to do.
This past school year I created a WordPress site for use with my classroom and pioneered some WordPress features in an educational context, such as WordPress Hunts to analyze points-of-view and Web Quests, where I provide a list of links in a post for students to visit with questions at the bottom for students to answer.
