Screen Time Tracking/Management

In my “What Happened in 2018” post I wrote this: And the usage of screen time management apps, like Screentime on iOS, is surging. We know we are addicted to tech, we don’t want to be, and we are working on getting sober. I wrote that based mostly on anecdotal data but we have been looking for better data and have not found it. So Dani and I worked on a survey that she ran last week and we got these results from a survey of 1,000 adults in the US using Google Surveys: 24% use an app ...

‘Black Monday’ is, umm, this Sunday

You better be watching this Sunday night or I don’t even know what to tell you. I know there’s football, this is for after… Welcome to “Black Monday,” a new Showtime comedy series that imagines the stock market crash of 1987 as the result of a rogue brokerage firm aiming to outfox the older (and whiter) Wall Street establishment.

LAUSD’s student decathletes wait and worry while teachers’ strike chips away at their chance to compete

“Today’s lesson is social activism and participatory democracy,” Heather Wilson, AP English and 9th Grade Honors English teacher at Bell High School, told her Academic Decathlon team this week as the LAUSD teachers strike trudged on. The labor dispute left students without their regular curriculum — and also shut down most of the clubs and extracurricular activities they look forward to. The Academic Decathlon, among the most anticipated annual events for student scholars, is just around the cor...

Bad Arguments Against Dollar Cost Averaging

There aren’t any no-brainers in investing, but DCA comes fairly close, especially for young people with access to a deferred tax solution like a 401(k)… Michael’s amazing post on dollar cost averaging went absolutely bonkers – because he’s showing the effect of dollar cost averaging in an all new way – how many S&P 500 shares you could have bought each month of the last twenty year...

EPA nominee: Climate change huge issue, not greatest crisis

By ELLEN KNICKMEYER WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday called climate change “a huge issue” but not the “greatest crisis,” drawing fire from Democrats at his confirmation hearing over the regulatory rollbacks he’s made in six months as the agency’s acting administrator.

For student supporting her LAUSD teachers, it’s all about classroom size

By Bradley Bermont, contributing reporter Middle-school was very different than elementary school for for 11-year-old Angelina Soultanian. Her class sizes became significantly larger, growing by a dozen or more students, and her cohorts’ behavior grew more disruptive with it, she said. It’s why the Patrick Henry Middle School sixth-grader marched in the rain through downtown Los Angeles, with her mom and sister, supporting the teachers’ strike on Monday. “Most of the time, they’re rude,” she sai...
