On this week's edition of NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS, host James Dick, a regular contributor to the Conservative Report and blogger through his own web site, North Florida Writer, northfloridawriter.com will lead a discussion of the plight of small rural landowners facing the pressure of development in rural North Florida. The show should be of benefit to all who love the rural lifestyle as the American landscape is under threat of urbanization from sea to shining sea. James will be joined by two landowners in the middle of the struggle for retention of their lifestyle, one a retired NCIS agent and the other a housewife, turned activist, when she realized after she had raised her family that the environment she loved and in which she had lived her entire life was collapsing around her, Topics will include:
PROPERTY RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
THE IMPACT OF LOBBYISTS ON THE LEGISLATIVE PROCESS
ACTION STEPS WHICH CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
THE PROPER BALANCE BETWEEN URBAN AND RURAL
Whether you are Conservative, Liberal or somewhere in between, if you live in, or want to maintain a reasonable rural presence in America, this show has something for you. After all, do we really need another strip mall or postage stamp lot development at every bend on the country road?

Bloods, Crips, Latin Kings and a host of other gangs plague our inner cities but is this the result of a society that has failed the children of this generation? When we look at the failure of the present school system that is validated by the number of failing schools especially in the inner city there is without question a "State of Emergency" in the public school system where ever you reside. Lets explore some answers to the problem and our responsibility to employ them.
Rapid expansion in adoptions and use of mobile devices in schools has the potential to impact almost every aspect of education. A new report, "Mobile Technology for K-12 Education," sponsored by mobile learning company, Amplify, and conducted by education market research experts at IESD, reveals details about the current status of mobile technology in our schools. The question is, what are publishers and developers who serve the school market doing in terms of their product marketing plans and their sales approaches as we move away from the a textbook centric K-12 sales environment to an environment where smartphones, tablets, and other mobile computing devices are the primary delivery envelope? Host Glen McCandless asks K-12 market researcher, Jay Sivin-Kachala, of IESD, to provide his perspective.

There are few experiences like attending a religious elementary school, high school or university. Some religious institutions of "learning" are mild, moderate and relatively benign. Others operate like puritan prisons. And the strict (and often bizarre) rules imposed by these schools can be interesting, entertaining, and often alarming.
This show features the experiences and stories of those raised in religious school environments. Have something you want to share? Email email@example.com
Dyslexia Screening: Essential Concepts for Schools & Parents - Dr. Richard Selnick
Dyslexia Screening: Essential Concepts for Schools & Parents presents an overview of the ‘nuts and bolts’ of what goes into a dyslexia screening program for schools. Helpful for parents too this guide presents material in clear, ‘down-to-earth’ terms.
"Dyslexia Screening: Essential Concepts for Schools & Parents is a perfect compendium that enables educators to take a proactive stance in the early identification and remediation of dyslexia."
- Steven G. Feifer, D.Ed., ABSNP – 2009 National School Psychologist of the Year
"Dyslexia Screening: Essential Concepts for Schools & Parents really helped our district get a handle on dyslexia – what it is, how to detect it and what to do about it, especially as we needed to implement the new state law.”
- Patricia Moulton, M.S.W. Special Education Coordinator, Brooklawn School District
"I wanted to let you how much I enjoyed your book. I especially appreciated that you point out the qualitative observations that should take place during assessment that can be so incredibly crucial. For example, using marks to show that a student took a long time to decode a word, even if they decoded it correctly. Your book will be a great resource for teachers/districts who are so reluctant or so nervous to identify struggling students."
- Kelli Sandman-Hurley, Ed.D. Dyslexia Training Institute
