    New Zealand Designer Makes Ingenious Solar-Powered Skylight That Desalinates Water For Drinking
    By Andy Corbley – February 23, 2021

    Those living in coastal Chile’s shanty towns see as much water as they could ever need, but they can’t drink it because it’s too salty. There’s also abundant solar energy on the coast, but nothing with which to utilize the energy source.

        Good morning, Stevie! It’s wonderful that an outsider has done such good for the shantytown communities. The people seemed inspired by the innovation and hopefully this will create in them a need for both formal and self education to bring themselves out of the poverty they are stuck in. All that human potential must not be lost.

        Though Chile is a relatively prosperous democracy, many thousands fall through the cracks. As with most nations of the world, “the poor get poorer” if there is no required formal schooling. I tried to determine if any Christian mission schools have been set up in the area, but could find little specific info and will have to delve in deeper to see what’s being done.

        Say a prayer that the people will find God. With Him anything is possible.

    Good morning everyone. This is a story that brings a tear to the eye. Sometimes God gives us such beauty opportunities in the face of our past great sins.

    Rethinking Intelligence: How Does Imagination Measure Up?
    Katrina Schwartz – April 11, 2016

    Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman’s personal education story may sound familiar to many families struggling against a system that doesn’t tend to value qualities in students that make them different from a predetermined “average” learner. When he was young, Kaufman had central auditory processing disorder, which made it hard for him to process verbal information in real time. He was asked to repeat third grade because he was considered a “slow” learner. That started him down a path of special education classes until high school.

    Biden claims he follows the science, but school guidance is rooted in fear instead
    Written by Catrin Wigfall on February 24, 2021

    President Biden remarked in January that his administration is “letting science speak again.” But with Biden’s team recently walking back his pledge to reopen a “majority” of schools by the end of his first 100 days in office, his school plans appear now to be more rooted in fear than science, according to Timothy Carney with the American Enterprise Institute.

    Christian Science Monitor: If You Don’t Like Public Schools Proselytizing for Islam, You’re a Racist
    February 23, 2021 6:00 PM By ROBERT SPENCER

    The Christian Science Monitor did its bit Friday for the left’s propaganda barrage, reminding us all that America is a benighted, sinister land full of racism, xenophobia, and Islamophobia, such that only Old Joe and his henchmen can save us. The Monitor painted a picture of an innocent World Cultures and Geography class in a New Jersey public school teaching about Islam and getting accused by racist redneck yahoos of proselytizing for Islam. As far as the Monitor is concerned, it’s a story of evil Trump followers hating the sainted Other; in reality, however, it reveals how Islamic indoctrination is becoming increasingly common and accepted in public schools.
