Why You Should Be Online Dating: App Reviews

As a follow up to the blog post titled Why You Should Be Online Dating, I felt it necessary to give the unlikely online dater and the casual online dater advice with online dating app reviews. It's hard enough to get out there but if you pick the wrong app, you might just give up on the whole thing: curled up in the fetal position, eating Ben and Jerry's out of the carton while rivers of salty tears run down your cheeks.

No Homework, No Future (part 2)

I apologize for the silence of the No Homework, No Future conversation. It has been nearly six months since my first post on the issue. Here in New York City, the transition from summer to yet another school year has begun. I know because none of my daughter's clothes fit and we have to go buy all those back to school supplies! Through all of this––the end of a school year, a summer off, and now, another academic year––I have updates on answering homework opposition, homework at P.S. 116, my daughter's summer homework, and enrollment at Success Academies.

No Homework, No Future

Recently, my daughter's elementary school made a decision to take on a "no homework" policy, this is my full and unabridged response.

A couple weeks ago, I was randomly approached by a reporter from DNAinfo.com. She wanted to know what I thought about this new policy being adopted by the school. You can read about it but, basically, I do not agree with said policy.

Because I was the only proponent of homework mentioned in the article, I instantly blew up as the hallmark on the war for homework. I trended on Facebook, was interviewed for NPR's The Takeaway, interviewed by the NY Post (not published), approached about doing an interview for CBS's The Doctors, and let's not forget Al Jazeera who called me Friday! It's a been a fun little ride being the flavor of the week but, unfortunately, as one might imagine, the media hasn't portrayed my full position on the "no homework" policy. That's why I'm typing this blog.
