Study Skill Tips for Parents

Good study habits are essential for students of all ages. Certainly, no two students have the exact same style of learning, and what works for one student may not work for another. However, when it comes to time to do homework, every child can benefit from a little organization. Here are a few tips to help your child develop better study habits: Tip#1 Create a system for keeping track of homework and tests.   ...more

Biden in the Doghouse

When frankly-speaking Joe Biden first entered the political race, there were bets about his first gaffe. Well, it's finally here - though much cuter and fuzzier than expected. Jill Biden made good on an election promise and got her husband a long-desired dog, thereby, beating Obama to the puppy finish line. However, Biden's choice of a pure-bred German shepherd puppy from a breeder has upset a number of animal lovers, including PETA. ...more

Great Gifts for the Holiday: Mobile Devices

I attended a jewelry party last week and the hostess had set out a card reading Only 14 Shopping Days Until Christmas! Uh, what? Her reasoning is that most of us don't have time to do any shopping during the week and we wait until the weekend. There were 14 weekend shopping days until Christmas. Now there are 12. No matter what winter holiday you are shopping for, it's time to start thinking about what we're going to buy and for whom. You can't go wrong with a mobile device: it's portable, it's techy (which usually means it's sexy), and it's handy. ...more

President-Elect Barack Obama: From "60 Minutes" to YouTube

Hang on folks 'cause we're about to have a "YouTube President" in the White House.  Yes, it's true he may now have to give up his BlackBerry, but that doesn't mean his administration won't use the media and the internet in ways that have only been imagined in politics before. Last night President-elect Barack Obama did his first televised interview since the election with Steve Kroft of "60 Minutes." And though interviews by new presidents on "60 Minutes" are not new, the way Mr. Obama has used the media to his advantage rivals that of The Great Communicator himself, the late President Ronald Reagan. ...more

I love the way he has reached out - just don't forget about the folks that don't use ... more

A Bold Prediction: White Americans Will Elect a Black President

Most white Americans will not vote for Barack Obama. No Democratic candidate for president has received a majority of white votes since Lyndon Johnson won in a landslide 44 years ago. But more white voters than voted for John Kerry, Al Gore and even Bill Clinton will vote for Obama on Tuesday if polls are correct. And they will join a majority of black, Asian American, Latino and Native American voters in a coalition that will make history on Tuesday. ...more

Thank you - I appreciated the way you crafted this together and frank openess of what you ... more

Laura Ingalls Wilder From The Prairie to TV to...Twitter?

What do you think of when I say "Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder?"  Do you think of summer afternoons reading about little Laura, her family and their adventures on the prairie?  Do you think of the TV show starring Michael Landon, Melissa Gilbert and Melissa Sue Anderson?  Do you think Twitter?  Yeah, you heard me, Twitter.  Hold onto your bonnets, people 'cause you remember sweet little Laura?  Well she's a 21st century lady now and that means she's on Twitter. ...more
