Common Core is obviously invented by mathematicians, reasoning from a Platonic ideal. It would have been nice to have first done some science on it, i.e., figure out if it really leads to improved skill and understanding before rolling it out. You need psychologists for that.
My mother in law of 71 does not have a higher education, and doesn't have a clue about the concepts behind numbers. Old-fashioned education. However, when confronted with a math problem in the supermarket, she beats my 12 year old by a mile. Algorithms and lots of exercise.
Google isn't *publishing* information, it's just indexing information (web page) already available elsewhere (on 3rd-party webservers).
Not entirely true. Google's claim to fame is not that it can index information, even altavista could do that, it is that it can rank it in a meaningful way. I'm pretty sure this lawsuit wouldn't have come up if Google would have shown this bit of information on page 10, instead of 1. In other words, the Google algorithms have decided that this is the most important bit of information to divulge about this person. And you think it's weird that the person in question wants this to stop?
