Back to the drawing board! Doodle for Google returns.

When I was a kid growing up in Minnesota, I was involved in our unofficial state past time, crafting.

It was titled: “It’s time to bring back the dumb phone.” I’ve both read and written numerous articles about the negative aspects of the modern smartphone, and have interviewed many people who have returned to a simpler alternative with few regrets.

Bill Gates, Book Critic, Names His Top 5 Books of 2018

Before we get too far into 2019, let's quickly recap the five books that made it to the top of Bill Gates' reading list in 2018. Over on his blog, Gates Notes, the Microsoft co-founder offers up these picks. He writes: Educated, by Tara Westover. Tara never went to school or visited a doctor until she left home at 17. I never thought I’d relate to a story about growing up in a Mormon survivalist household, but she’s such a good writer that she got me to reflect on my own life while readi...

If there’s an LAUSD teachers strike, non-union substitute teachers could be highly paid

Filling classrooms with substitutes, if a looming strike lands this week, could come with a hefty price tag for Los Angeles Unified. While the district has about about 2,000 district employees — who have teaching credentials but are not in the teachers union — assigned to work in specific schools or areas, according to a new report that came out today, officials could also bring in up to 4,400 contract substitutes to fill holes. Those subs would make substantially more than regular L.A. Unified ...

"I first took on The Lord of the Rings at the age of eleven or twelve," writes The New Yorker's Anthony Lane. "It was, and remains, not a book that you happen to read, like any other, but a book that happens to you: a chunk bitten out of your life." The preteen years may remain the most opportune ones in which to pick up the work of J.R.R. Tolkien, but whatever the period in life at which they find their way in, most readers who make the journey through Middle-earth never really leave th...
