* A second Catagory 5 Hurricane is going to hit Barbuda, which is already leveled. They are trying to evacuate the whole island. I know we in the US are all about Irma right now, and for fuck's sake if you are in it's path listen to directions about evacuation vs. shelter in place, but a second hurricane in the leewards on top of the devastation.... I have no fucking words.

It's looking like there are a lot of scammers calling for donations. It sounds like the authorities in Antigua & Barbuda want people to go through the Red Cross right now, as what is needed is centralized relief through a legitimate charity.

If they have not told you to evacuate, but you are near the path, it is a good idea to make up a Go Bag just in case. Don't forget critical papers like your birth certificate.

If Congress appropriates money, Treasury should just be allowed to raise it; if Congress doesn't WANT to spend the money, they shouldn't vote to appropriate it. The Debt Ceiling has always been an unnecessary step, but Republican Congress Critters not bright enough to understand that refusing to pay your credit card bill does not mean you haven't spent the money and only makes things dramatically worse rather quickly has turned it into an endlessly recurring crisis for most of my adult life. Removing the step removes the source of economic instability with no down side.

* The smoke is still an issue today, but less extreme, and the temperature being reasonable really helps. I am still getting that delightful stabbed in the back feeling when I move, and my lungs are not great, but I'm actually functional. I dragged myself out on time for the car appointment. it went so fast my tea didn't have time to cool enough to drink. There is a suspicion a bolt might need replacing. I am to bring it back if the chittering starts again. Bolt replacement will be free if so, because Honest Mechanic is a superstar. I forgot to ask about the engine light, alas. I am still quietly panicking about bills, but I am not convinced I'm well enough to do ebay without error, so I'll likely hold another day at least until I'm struggling less with things like breathing.

* NAZI waste of skin Daniel Borden’s claiming it was somehow Black Lives Matter’s fault that he and a group of other racist thugs targeted a random African American man, Deandre Harris, for brutal assault in Charlottesville, continuing to beat with metal poles and kick the innocent victim as he tried to crawl away in between bouts of unconsciousness. How BLM forced him to do this seems pretty unclear to me, but his lawyer insists this is the case.

Other reports are showing he has a long history of racism, including threatening a student with a knife white yelling anti-Semetic slurs in Middle School. I am having a hard time finding one good article that contains the racist history while not trying to humanize him and make him somehow the victim instead of someone who pretty clearly tried to murder an innocent person because he hates black people, that will not also eat one of your ten NYTimes or Washington Post clicks for the month.

* It comes up periodically, and it has a few times lately, so I will mention that no one has to follow me. I don't mind if it's not your cup of tea. There is also no reason to follow my lj and tumblr both if you don't want to. The Lj/dreamwidth version is condensed. It comes with the best of the links, including the best of things I see on tumblr. It has the Personal stuff. It has the news summaries, reviews, and commentary. If you want way more reblogs of quotes, political stuff, humor, and images that suit my aesthetic interests, the tumblr version may be your thing. I know I'm spammy and tumblr wears people out. Never feel guilty for not being up to it even if we are rl friends.

Live journal version: http://gwyd.livejournal.com/
Dreamwidth version: http://gwydion.dreamwidth.org/
Tumblr Version: http://gwydionmisha.tumblr.com/

Tumblr is catch as catch can with images tending to be most of what happens by day.
The Dreamwidth/livejournal is deliberately organized with charity links at the bottom below the line. If you are an anxious reader, generally the lighter stuff is at the bottom and the more serious stuff at the top, so one can read bottom up if one isn't sure how much one is up to on a given day.

Again, seriously, I do not track who and who isn't reading me and there is no need to worry about offending me if you unfollow. Do what you need to do. Be gentle to yourselves out there.

* This. This. This. This was pretty much how I ended up teaching, though Greene came out when I was already in the field. It just seemed kinder and more effective to respond to the causes instead of fixating on the behavior and to involve the child having problems in coming up with strategies. It made more sense to me to approach a kid quietly and ask if everything was alright and help the kid work out how to sort out whatever it was than to come in hard and heavy with consequences right off. If I had to hand out consequences I'd failed. My job was to see that something was wrong before it escalated. My job was to help their brains develop and give them tools they could use long term. Yes, some kids are jerks, but most of the ones chronically in trouble in other people's rooms had real problems. They had limited English, or learning disabilities, or problems at home, or were victims of abuse. They were frustrated or picked on or struggling with brain learning issues, or PTSD, or Depression and the like. They needed one kind of help or another. My goal every day was to get as many of them as possible what help it was in my power to give to get them through that day without humiliation or cruelty, and to long term make things just a little bit better for them. We couldn't save all of them, but damned if we didn't try and I got to see my share of miracles: incremental work by lots of caring teachers trying to help them learn strategies and skills, help them heal, help them reconnect with the people around. the super strict micro-managing behavior programs never worked. The kids just got angrier and angrier. What worked out in the field was teachers and aids individually taking time and effort to really help. In my room, all those kids with the behavioral labels got to start fresh every single day. In my room, they got a fair shake because I kept an eye out for instigators and scapegoating. I'd land hard on a kid I caught goading or tormenting some poor kid with impulse control issues, and I'd make damned sure his or her other teachers knew what they were doing, bullying another kid into exploding for sport. I always did my best to find the root cause instead of taking the easy victim. It's impossible to always be fair and just, but oh did I try. the teachers around me whom I respected tried. We could see the difference in the kids. I'm glad there is an official framework for it, a book to be studied, because it was hard work deriving this system ourselves in the midst of it. You go, Greene!
