pnh is funny about my new book — No Coke near your keyboard while reading.

Today's Dilbert captures the essence of business writing

Guru Handbook — A seeker writes about teaching. The context is finding a spiritual path, but the author has a number of interesting things to say about teaching, learning and expertise. See this entry on what it means to be a teacher.

It is truly inspiring to see the lengths to which men will go to reconstruct the great stories of old from sugar-based substances.

Yes, it had a certain eerie familiarity, didn't it?

I have to admit that I don't get the joke. I'm guessing it's a pop culture reference that I missed, yes?

Keyword:a - stairway to heaven
Example: "It made me laugh so hard I blew Coke out of my nose."

However, with me it's usually milk bubbles ;)

A couple of years ago, I managed to find "Just Imagine" on television and taped it. That year, we showed it on the in-hotel television channel at Windycon. It holds the distinction of being the first talkie science fiction film and the first science fiction film musical.

Seconded from the parent of an autistic child! Maybe now we can look toward maximizing our children's potential instead of finding someone to blame and punishing them.

Subject: Thoughts on DNA Testing Story
Even though this DNA deletion only accounts for a small percentage of Autistic kids---the ramifications are still massive in that, it is only a beginning. Right now, despite good success with the DAN (Defeat Autism Now) protocol which I practice (over 1,100 Autistic kids lost their diagnosis on it), we still have no real good measures for which kids will do well on what treatment. So for us to have reliable genetic markers is exciting beyond words. Please join me in keeping our hopes and prayers up for more breakthroughs like this.
I do agree that to use this to test for whether the second child would be affected or not is not practical since this only affects 1% of the kids.

God bless!
