Face it - the DEA is either lying, completely full of bullshit, or so hopelessly incompetent they should all be fired.
Or all of the above
I don't think you appreciate how much teachers really make, especially if they've been there for a while. Teachers get some of the most generous automatic raises you'll ever see, can get all kinds of salary bonuses for becoming nationally certified, etc. I used to work for a school district in an area where the average income is around $35,000/yr and some of the senior teachers in my district were making very close to six figures. The principals even more. They're hardly the poor street urchins the unions sell them as.
This is only if your school district does not have a freeze on raises like every single school district within 40 miles of where I live. With the budget crunch in education teachers are not getting their automatic raises for time spent teaching or advancing their education.
I don't think there is anything preventing them from working in the off season. Just another form of seasonal worker like lifegaurd or Mr Plow.
So a working professional with a Masters degree should have to get a "summer job" as a lifeguard or in retail in order to survive the summer? Does any other line of work that requires a college degree require a summer job like they are a high school student? Give me break!
"Better, faster, stronger," Apple could have easily lifted those Kanye West lyrics for their press release announcing the coming of the iPhone 3GS in 2009.
*facepalm* Sorry, I know its a minor detail, but Daft Punk originally wrote "Better, faster, harder, stronger", and Kanye sampled it (with permission) for his song. They have a cameo in his video, which is an awesome tribute to Akira for those that haven't seen it.
*watches Daft Hands and Daft Bodies on youtube*
Thank you. Daft Punk FTW
As others have metioned you can use the OpenDNS FamilyShield settings (http://www.opendns.com/home-solutions/parental-controls/) with your router which will block out the majority of adult content out there. I would also enable safe search on google for each computer (http://support.google.com/websearch/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2519950&rd=1) which will filter out adult image and web search results and make sure you lock the settings so they can't just go in and remove safe search (http://support.google.com/websearch/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=144686&rd=3)
Forgot to mention that
now devs and companies just have to click a few buttons and we got some games... hopefully
After you pay for the second copy
"If you think playing endless hours of Call of Duty will create a desire to get into the information technology, think again.
Such families often accumulate PCs, gaming consoles and smart phones, but use them only for nonconstructive activities.
Find me a constructive activity to do with gaming consoles and smart phones. Stack them up like blocks? Practice marksmanship? Learn circuit bending?
How about being a kid and having fun with your friends outside of the 8 hours a day you are at school and the 4 hours a day you are doing homework?
