Comment: Forget Doom, Fallout 4 is where it's at. (Score 1) 113 113

I owe a lot of my formative years to playing Doom, but like the dinosaurs, it's time to move on. Revitalizing the Doom games is nothing short of a money grab, whereas I think Fallout represents a paradigm shift in pushing the limits of what's possible. I'll be first in line when Fallout 4 comes out.

Comment: Money and technology cannot replace what's missing (Score 1) 150 150

It's sad that people feel that the combination of money and technology will fix the classroom issues, what no one seems to realize is that the human factor has more to do in a classroom. Instructors who can inspire confidence in pupils make the difference in the classroom. The human factor cannot be replaced, the idea that no one understands this continues to befuddle me. Forget dumping money and technology into classrooms. Fire all the bad teachers, abolish the idea of tenure in public schools, and then things can start to think about improving.
