Yakuza1970's recent activity

  • For all of you interested in education, I would highly recommend watching "Finnish First" by Dan Rather. FYI: The documentary is a bit over 50 minutes. http://blip.tv/hdnet-news-and-documentaries/d ...
  • Beautiful shot! I drive 280 often and always see the fog creeping over the mountains. Where exactly did you take this shot if you don't mind me asking?
  • I'm a 4th grade teacher and often take photos of my students during class while they're working. If I want them to smile I sometimes say "Imagine your brother (or sister) bald" which usually gets ...
  • My two cents: looks like the RX-10 would be a better fit for you than the RX100m3 although I would also seriously consider the A6000 since it's certainly a camera you can grow with. I have the ...
  • Created discussions Aperture RAW Updates
    Now that Apple has axed Aperture, do you know if they will still have RAW updates for new cameras in the near future? I just bought a Sony RX100 mIII and was hoping for an Aperture RAW update soon.
  • Congrats on the D610 - I'm envious! I know little about swimming but in this shot it would appear his entry into the water was about to be very painful!
  • Replied in Not forgotten.
    How would you "grade" a Kindergarten teacher? His/her students have no previous test scores to compare. How would you "grade" a music teacher? A first grade teacher where his/her students do not ...
  • Dave, You're right about the emphasis on test scores. I've been a teacher for 16 years now (elementary), and I've never been opposed to standardized testing except for how the scores are used by ...
  • I agree with your three features doctorxring. I'd add keeping the flash mechanism that allows it to be swiveled up for bounce flash. I think it's one of the best features when available light is ...
  • Yeah I hear you. However, I feel it's important to speak up and tell what it's really like to teach. I don't want others on this board or any place else to start believing what he and others like ...
  • Considering you know a teacher, I would have thought you would know that public teachers are paid a salary and have contracted hours. In my case, it's from 8:10 am to 3:25 pm every day for 181 ...
  • O.K. I understand where you're coming from now. I think we are not connecting on what is "working hours" as you stated above. When I don't have students in front of me that I'm teaching, I'm ...
  • I agree. I would love to go to year round school schedule (although it's really "modified schedule").I feel the students lose too much over the long breaks. 2.5 hours a day? While I agree it seems ...
  • Hard to believe Back to the Future came out almost 30 years ago. I guess that means the Chicago Cubs are going to win the World Series next year - better bet my life savings on them!
  • My advice from two recent car purchase in 2013: (1) Figure out what you want (hopefully you're past this step) and narrow it down to three or four models.
  • You didn't mention the age of the students but some advice from my point of view (4th grade teacher), get some parent volunteers to help out with the "kid wrangling". The last thing you need is a ...
