Save on back to school shopping!

I know you might be thinking it's too soon to talk about going to school. However a best kept secret is that it is much better to start early. Many parents start in late August and find themselves missing out on summer deals.  Books that are in high demand have also been known to sell out long before August ends. It pays to start early Parents who start early save a lot. A number of fairs have been arranged in the summer. [...]

JN Foundation's Education Revolution: Joy and Rigor

If there was one overriding message to take away from the JN Foundation's two-day School Leadership Summit 2016 last month, it was this: We can't keep doing the same things in the same way. We are not just talking about teaching techniques, but about leadership. Are we running our schools properly? Are we inspiring and energizing, or are we still struggling with paperwork and administrative hassles? How do we break through all of this? JN Foundation's rallying call was for principals, [...]

Other spots allow you to hear, in unrestricted ways, combustion being initiated and speed being conceived and delivered. There are also spots which allow you to see all of the on-track activity but they are often [...]

CIRCUIT RACING: SUMMERBELL - BULLIED AND BEATEN! PART 5

Protests emerged. But, Uber is at it again! Uber will introduce autonomous vehicles to the industry! The program will roll out in a USA city. Embrace technology, embrace the future.

CIRCUIT RACING: SUMMERBELL - BULLIED AND BEATEN! FINAL

PETER MOODIE JR I heard and watched the TT-R as it went by. I did the same for the other machines in the race. I could tell then, the first time it blew by, that the TT-R was in abnormal mode! I saw Peter Moodie Jr. on Saturday. He was preparing Fraser McConnell's Subaru. I asked him if he intends to reurn to racing. He said, " With my money? No. If I get sponsorship. Yes!" I remembered that he was instrumental [...]
