Odds and ends

You know, it'd be a ton simpler to think of infectious new blog entries in the event that I didn't have such a great amount of life to live :) With the AP test a month away, I'm focusing on and attempting to pass on however much knowledge as could be expected to my understudies - in addition to I additionally have the sophomore classes to stress over - in addition to Son #2 is down with yet an alternate twofold ear disease - in addition to Son #1 is beginning youth soccer this week (the U-5 group; how charming will THAT be?!) - in addition to in any case i'm attempting to land an administrator position which means submitting continues and going on meetings. Along these lines, yes, I've been a bit occupied!

Miscellaneous items about which to blog:

Child #1 is going to kindergarten in the fall, and his new basic school does a little preorientation thing where the children come in for a week for four weeks and do cool enormous child stuff. Week 1 was stories and recreations; Week 2 was a forager chase where they looked into the changed rooms at the school; Week 3 is going to be the chief coming into read a story to the children and discuss how he will dependably help them, and so on. So Son returned and excitedly let me know about his scrounger chase, ending up with "And one week from now the main is coming in! Mom, what's a main? Is it like a princess??"

Today, as I was auditing the rules for my AP understudies' obliged presentations, one understudy raised her hand. She said, "I most likely to have said something prior. Anyhow I don't think its reasonable that we need to go tomorrow and alternate gatherings go the following week. That is to say, the last gathering is going an entire week after us."

Um, dear, that is slightly how life functions. Somebody goes initially, and somebody goes last. What the @#$% do these children think will happen in school and genuine living?!

An alternate child, as I headed over the rudiments of the circulatory framework, raised her hand with a decent question. "So you said that the cardiovascular cycle takes short of what a second, and that the greater part of our tissues need incessant gas trades... thus, how quick does blood go through your veins? Like in miles for every hour? Since when you watch CSI and somebody cuts a corridor, there's an enormous splash - would it say it is similar to 20 mph?"

I conceded I had no clue.

Also since numerous locales are hindered by our school separating framework, I needed to hold as of recently to check - the main answer I could discover was on, which is not the best hotspot for things cardiological. They cited an estimation of 0.64 to 4 mph (since blood stream is pulsatile) in the carotid course.

Sounds great to me. Anybody know anything better?
