NYS is a strong union state. At the end of 12th grade, only 10% of public school students read and do math well enough for either college or career.

The best countries have teachers who know their subject matter. That is not required in the US.

It's been done for centuries, why can't it be done now? I suspect the problem is that the schools don't want educated students, they want docile students. If they wanted to educate, they'd start with systematic phonics and dump all the variations of Whole Language.
Nope. They are copying what Mohammad did. Mohammad raped little girls, burned people alive, bought and sold slaves, slaughtered Jews and Christians, etc. Mohammad commanded that others do the same. Jesus never did any of that, nor did he ever command it, so people doing any of those things have taken it upon themselves.
Try again. You are looking at islamic eschatology in action. In order to bring about the revealing of the hidden imam, there must be a region of sufficiently pure islam and then chaos elsewhere. Then the hidden imam will be revealed ahd will bring the entire world under sharia law.
Nope, but we got to see that Mrs O failed to teach her kids to think and work in a logical fashion.
Thirty minutes before she realized that you can't turn something moist into powder?? Mrs O sure did a poor job of teaching her kids to work in a logical fashion. My kids knew immediately that first you dry out the cheese and then you crush it. Instant powder.
Here's where a cheap, OTC antiviral would be great.

Polio was never eradicated. Poliomyelitis is an enterovirus that also has cousins (enterovirus d-68 and enterovirus d-71) that have exactly the same presentation and result (most of the time just a cold, a small percent infantile paralysis.) By claiming that it is gone, people have let their guard down. The 'newer' enteroviruses blindsided them.

We've been trying to vaccinate and immunize our way to a life without disease for almost 300 years. When you consider how malleable viruses are, and how easy gene splicing is, perhaps we need a different method now. (If you want to scare your socks off yourself, look up how adding one gene to mousepox enabled that disease to wipe out 100% of a population of both naturally resistant mice and immunized mice. This was done in Australia. They were trying to boost the mice's immune response. Instead they created a virus that would just blow through it.)
