The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Laurie Endicott Thomas Author of Not Trivial.
Not Trivial explains why the sight-word method keeps being used, despite the harm that it does to children. If you need a schoolteacher to participate in the discussion, my friend Don Potter (www.donpotter.net), who has a wealth of experience in bilingual primary education, can describe how effectively he uses phonics instruction for curing dyslexia.
it has been obvious since the 1840s that using the sight-word method of teaching reading is a disaster. Some children who are subjected to this method figure out the English phonetic system on their own. (I taught myself to read by studying the spelling of the rhyming words in Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham.) Those who don’t figure it out on their own remain functionally illiterate. On this page (http://www.not-trivial.com/dyslexia.html), I show how the opening paragraph of a simple childr
"Yeah, life sucks. Your'e a little guy, so just deal with it." Ain't that some shit?!?!? But, my man, who is trying to right a wrong from a local company that hurt him physically, can't pursue a claim. Why? I can't divulge. I want to.... You have no idea! But, by doing what is right, will hurt others that have nothing to do with this. Go figure.
Phillip Endicott joins us this week to talk about his dream for a Credit Union for the LGBT community.

Kathy Porter grew up in Endicott, New York, the birthplace of IBM and only a short distance from where one of her favorite TV series creators, Rod Serling, was raised. Kathy's lifelong interest in science fiction ignited when her father, a science teacher, showed her craters on the moon and taught her about the constellations. She grew up watching science fiction movies and TV shows. Ray Bradbury's Martian Chronicles was her first delve into a science fiction novel, and she has been hooked ever since.
"I think I was born telling stories," Kathy explained during a recent interview. "As second to the oldest of seven children, the girls all slept in one bedroom. I loved making up bedtime stories with an eerie edge to frighten my sisters: tales about fairies, leprechauns, and aliens."

It's that time of year again. Time to fend off the bullshit, and be all about the truth! That's where I come in! Fred Akshar wants to be about the people, I'll be certain to get him on the air. He can cut a tree, hang with his family, and did some undercover work with the Sherrif's Office. Great! Awesome! Wanna run some ideas for the next 4 years by me? We need some idea about HOW you want to make things better, not how you've done in the past... (Drinks up to then, by the way). Tell me how my business is better off here tomorrow, not how you helped me out years ago. (despite my appreciation) You come to me for the truth, I'll give you what I have!
I think I said it all. Manpower are bigots, and support bigots, in their laptop testing division. He was asked to keep quiet, until today...! Hey, Larena, John, and James; what do you find funny now?!?!? Oh, I have stories.... All in due time....!
With even more Millennials and young people between the ages of 18 and 34 returning home to live with older parents, there are all kinds of issues that arise around expectations, assumptions and stages of life.
According to a recent Fortune Magazine article, the share of younger adults living at home has increased from 24% to 26% over the last 5 years, while the number of young adults living independently has decreased by two percentage points from 69% to 67%. (The Pew Research Center Study)
While there has always been a population of younger adults living with their parents, this has become more acute since 2008, leading to the term “boomerang kids.” (Financial Literacy Tips for Boomerang Kids)
There are three actionable tips that both younger adults—and their older adult parents—can do to make this situation less conflict prone:
• Discuss and establish expectations early
• Address issues on an adult-to-adult level, rather than on a child-to-adult level
• Focus on individual situations as they happen, rather than attaching them to a family history, or a shared set of experiences that may no longer be relevant
