Arlington VT


Arlington, VermontOne of my secret pleasures is the Sunday New York Times.  Its a secret because I am a staunch conservative independent and very seldom share their editorial points of view although I devour the op-eds in the Week in Review section, particularly those of Maureen Dowd and Tom Friedman whom I have followed since his wonderful book From Beirut to Jerusalem  and more recently The World Is Flat and its updated version.. I further confess that I would never attend a Sunday Open House without my Sunday Times on hand in case I have a slow afternoon. In fact , I cant live without the Book Review and I used to pick out reviews for my scholarly husband at his request so he didn't have to wade through the popular non-fiction that I so enjoy, finding those rare but fascinating new writings on philosophy and Judaism for his personal reading list. Arlington, Vermont My last confession is that I have little or no interest in the sports section (because they do not cover equestrian sports), the metropolitan section (because I dont live there), the front page (because it is repeated ad nauseam in every piece of technology that I own) nor the style section which I totally gave up when I reverted to a more comfortable horsewoman lifestyle.  The section that I  have least interest in though is the travel section as having seen all of Europe that I care to see and the Middle East on more than one occasion and an actual dislike of the Caribbean and its rich resorts surrounded by abject poverty..I now only want to travel within the United States and get to know my country better..sort of like John Steinbeck and Travels with Charley: In Search of America.  Charley was a poodle and I have a poodle. Get me a camper and I am good to go.  Now to the point. Arlington, Vermont I was all ready to throw the travel section of the Times on the floor yesterday, when all of a sudden lo and behold there was a photograph taken through the covered bridge in West Arlington with a fabulous view of Norman Rockwells home as well as a reprint of Norman Rockwells Freedom From Want painting with my late husband Bill Hosington and his sister Shirley McTernan sitting at the Thanksgiving table!  Not only was it front page but the most interesting story of Norman Rockwell unfolded in a full centerfold article with mention also of his granddaughter, Daisy Rockwell (who bought a home from us just last year) and mention of her exhibition at the Bennington Museum which is still on displayall of that and picturesque views of River Road and the Battenkill River have given us the most dramatic marketing piece imaginable.publicity that we could never afford to purchase and done all by a superb writer, Deborah Solomon.  Just to add further serendipity to all of this, we sold land for a New Yorker named Debbie Solomon just this past yearcould it be her???? Needless to say i e-mailed her today.

    I was missing Debra too! I canont believe the items she's able to put together to create an outfit that makes a wonderfully articulate statement about the uniquely stylish, creative soul she is.

      P, I think you're wrong. Even if council reeemmcndod specific cuts, the BOE is under no obligation to follow suit. From my perspective, RT's council handled the issue perfectly. They cut deep but made sure BOE decisions don't have to hurt student programs. If kids suffer, it's on the board’s head.The RT council sent a committee with 14 years of detailed budget experience. In addition, Mike Dachisen is a product of RT schools as are kids and soon his grand children. Alex Gellmen Doc is also a lifelong resident who attended RT schools. Doc's contribution to the world as part of doctors without borders just adds to his wisdom and experience. Finally, Steve Antonelli is a successful business man with significant investment in RT and he often wolfs down dinner to make council meetings and before that the board of adjustments. As a group, they listened to both sides carefully reviewed all data and made the right choice … in 5 days .I hope they do as well in Roxbury

          I've always loved that poem - the end is one that stays with you foverer! Beautiful photos - it looks like such an interesting and tranquil place to visit. I also like walking around old graveyards - they can be very peaceful. When I was a little girl I loved looking at all of the angels.

            they never use what they learned in clogele on their job. "I use what I learned in school every day. A lot of your claims seem to be based on anecdotal hear-say, not evidence. I bet Mark Perry uses what he learned in clogele everyday, too ;)" we wouldn't have the stupid hiring we see now, but it is fairly widely accepted that the curricula themselves are largely worthless for the job."Stupid hiring? "Yes, matrix algebra is completely worthless on the job, as that's what your computer is for. If you find yourself solving matrix equations by hand, there is something very wrong at your workplace."So what do you say to the guy who writes codes and has to program for solving matrix equations? I actually had to do it by hand once, or develop the code for doing it, since no off the shelf solution existed. "Actually a lot of Burger King employees did go to clogele. ;)"Actually, not a lot of them did. What's a lot to you? 1 thousandth of a %?"And those odds are changing as people start to realize the worthlessness of clogele, witness the many computer programmers who never got a clogele degree."I have never witnessed a computer programmer that never got a clogele degree. Does Microsoft hire computer programmers that don't have clogele credentials in their field? ;) Gee...I wonder why that is, even through their own founder didn't have one. "Yes, the MIT grad will tend to afford that Mercedes easier, but you are confusing correlation with causation, as explained before. "No one is claiming correlation or causation. I'm claiming sampling bias. Colombia or MIT or others practice sampling bias...the bias that tells the employer that an engineer from MIT is going to be a better engineer than one from Mississippi State. What you are saying is true; that is the purpose of clogele. It weeds out people into categories for employers to chose from, without having to incur the costs themselves. And thats a VERY important role that it plays. Employers are not going to experiment on a constant basis to hire anyone off the street that claims to have the knowledge they seek. But they KNOW...with a certain degree of certainty, that someone who went through 4-5 years in a top university, is very likely to be much more competent than someone who didn't.A 4-5 year "aptitude test" to prove to an employer that you have what it takes, isn't cheap. It shouldn't be cheap. "And if you can learn more valuable material at a fraction of the cost online, then the price of that degree is vastly inflated, regardless of what salary you end up with"Information is free. Schools don't teach information. You can go get information at Wikipedia if you want. Employers aren't looking at what information you have access too.This is what a lot of people here are missing; education is not about information.

              I can't fault Christie playing harbdall. Why should he give up what little leverage he has with the legislature before they've even begun to negotiate? Besides, I'm sure Dems can make a deal with enough moderate Republicans in competitive districts to override a veto. I'm not sure how this will play out but I'm sure the end result will be a government shutdown in July followed by harbdall negotiations followed by some kind of tax increase and restoration of rebates.With legislative elections next year there are simply too many vulnerable Republicans unwilling to jeopardize their political careers just to protect the bank accounts of a few megamillionaires. Besides, there is a big difference between millionaires , whose net worth exceeds one million dollars (not really all that much when one considers the average price of a home in some neighborhoods in Morris County), and someone whose income exceeds one million dollars. The latter is more likely to be closer to billionaire than millionaire .
