Economy- One my former students, Patrick Jean Baptise, wrote an opinion article   for The Harvard Crimson on what we in the US know about the economy. Read it to see what real writing at the college level looks like! Ignorance is Not Bliss

I will be taking over sponsorship of the Future Medical Professionals Club for the 2014-15 school year. As such, we are "folding" Sharks Blood into that group.  (Whether as a sub-committee or what-not has not yet been decided).  In generally, there will be a blood drive every 8 weeks starting from the first couple of weeks of school. Once they are scheduled you'll be able to find them on the school calendar.

Holocaust Awareness - On 3/4/2010 I received an email from my aunt with details about a Polish Catholic woman who saved thousands of Jewish children from death during the Holocaust. Given that my parents are survivors, I tend to think I am well informed, but I had not heard of her, but after some research I discovered that the Irena Sender story, as portrayed in the email was true. Rather than forward the email, which would, I'm sure, be deleted by most, I'm posting a link to the story here, where it will remain part of my web pages.

My favorite quote:

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
Aldous Huxley, "Proper Studies", 1927
English critic & novelist (1894 - 1963)
Life Rules & the Question...Is it better to be a jock or a nerd.

So you think you are smart....Here is an 8th grade final exam from 1895.
