great article/idea

i think this is relative and could be genius...

(i posted something way back about scott mcnealy of sun microsystems fame speaking to this)

Books too boring? Maybe they need badges and achievements.

If old-fashioned books are too boring for you, ebook distributor OverDrive wants to gamify them with interactive elements and video game-inspired achievements and badges for kids who finish their reading homework.

From what I see at the two universities I drive by on a daily basis: UNC and Duke; it appears that much of their new construction is for medical research (cancer, genetics, cardiology, etc.) buildings and the large, expensive machinery those fields entails.  I have seen other "satellite" buildings from those schools though, which are probably for non-specialized purposes.  Those two schools may be different than most in that they both encompass "research hospitals".  I have seen other campuses though, where it appears that the new construction projects may be more like an attempt to "pretty things up" to attract students.  I agree, even though most universities offer online courses, much more can be done that way instead of spending on physical construction.

He's either making the obvious point (that has been raised ad nauseum) about credential inflation, or he's more broadly taking a swipe at the absurd excesses of the wealthy.

BAM! Next question.

Canada raises more than $3.8B for girls' education at G7
U.S. did not contribute to fund, PMO confirms
The Canadian government announced at the G7 summit in Quebec that it has raised more than $3.8 billion in an effort with other countries to send the world's poorest girls to school.

That includes a $400-million investment from Canada as part of the overall three-year commitment, and also includes contributions from G7 partners and the World Bank.

Canada, along with the European Union, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the World Bank, will partner on the funds, which will go towards supporting women acquiring job skills, improving teacher training to improve curriculum for girls, expanding the quality of data available on female education and promoting more coordination between humanitarian partners.

A spokesperson in the Prime Minister's Office confirmed no funds were offered by the U.S.

The money raised exceeds the $1.3 billion US over three years that a coalition of 30 non-governmental organizations had called on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to raise as part of his chairmanship of the G7 this year. (...)

New Jersey 'mystery pooper' was schools chief, say police

Kenilworth school superintendent Thomas Tramaglini, 42, was detained after investigators set up a sting operation to snare the "mystery pooper".

Police were called after students complained of frequent excrement near their school running track and field.

Mr Tramaglini is charged with lewdness, littering and defecating in public.

Mr Tramaglini, who earns nearly $150,000 (£110,000) per year as head of the local education authority, was arrested.

Police officers said they had just observed him in the act.
