It is fitting that you posted as an anonymous COWARD! Otherwise we might want to take a look at how much of your time is wasted. Given how much you are paid to teach future engineers and you can't get them to solve a triangle in 2 minutes, i suspect you are a poor excuse for a teacher at a state university. Since the state's residents taxes are paying your salary, i suggest they take a close look at how many weekends, holidays, and other downtime that you get paid for.
You are reminding me of Blondie24. Please publish, or provide a link or something. Would love to read up on your work.
I can't straighten out this young person's life in view of the excessive charges being brought against her, or even get her back in school (though I think she has been ill served by the one she is in).
So, I humbly propose May 1st to be known as the Kiera Wilmot Science Day. On this day, I encourage teachers, scientists and adult volunteers of all stripes to perform a science experiment for the next generation. Invite them to see a chemical reaction, look through a telescope, search for fossils, or hell, just watch a gyroscope and think about what keeps it from falling over. Ask the kids what they think happened, how they would prove what they think happened, design the next experiment, etc etc.
Since the school system cannot do it, it is up to individuals to instill curiosity and wonder to the younger set.
I'd be inclined to buy a magazine or two (Wired, Ham Radio stuff, science fiction and the like, or even Bitch magazine) if there was a bookstore near me where I could browse the rack. Sadly, all the bookstores are gone now.
They are right here. They are hardly a regulatory body, they can't enforce anything.
If it only gets me something with clunky 0.2mm resolution or worse... meh.
I want something that is precise enough to print detailed D&D miniatures and creatures, which means that the smallest details need to be in the neighborhood of about 20microns or so.
Maybe this is what you are looking for?
I am not associated with either sandboxr or kickstarter.
... addresses the subject and is at the same time very entertaining!

Clearly this is a case of government interference in the free market. If all that CO2 sequestration and oxygen were worth more money than cows, the invisible hand of the market would have led to an abundant rain forest rather than cattle ranches.
Sublime Text , a (pricey) text editor, has a "Distraction Free Mode" in which it takes up your entire screen. You won't be able to see blinking icons or notifications of incoming emails, etc. You can still tab off easily enough, but there is less of a temptation to do so.
Is it too soon to believe that renaissance in science fiction films is underway via Kickstarter?
I say this having recently funded and watched "C 299792 km per second". Granted two films don't make a "renaissance" but I can hope...
How come the Piet programming language didn't make the cut?
...will we see this in Kerbal Space Profram?
Somebody is proposing to do it this way: Seethe folk at Quick Launch Inc.
There is already the Centre Spatial Guyanais launch center located in South America in Kourou in the French Guiana, at about 5 degrees north of the equator. The center is widely used for European (and other!) commercial satellite launches.
