    ¡Chthulhu! en 2016. ¿Por qué votar por el mal menor?

    1/4+3/5 = 17/20

    No thought required.

    Understanding fractions is a bit more work. It takes a dozen logical steps to get from four quarters in a dollar to subtracting and dividing fractions. I find that it helps both children and mathophobic parents to work in slices of pizza, or pictures of pizza slices on paper or on a computer.

    For the example above, cut one pizza in four, and a second in five, and take one slice from pizza 1 and three from pizza 2. Cut the quarter pizza in five, getting twentieths, and cut the fifths of pizza in four each, getting twentieths, and count the twentieths. Of course, you don’t start children there. You have to begin with much simpler cases, and work up to it.

    Cuisenaire rods work, too. Muffin pans and dried beans. No, M&Ms. This needs to be fun. Measuring cups. Lego blocks. Squares on a checkerboard. Apples and oranges. Say, you know those chocolate oranges you usually see around Christmas time, that come apart in slices? Mmmm. Tasty fractions.

    My wife and I are in the process of cutting the cord. Our Roku gives us access to a wide range of noticias and telenovelas. Univision, Telemundo, Galavisión, Canal Sur, Telemadrid…

    2 de cada 4 eligible Latinos no votan.

    Lo siento, esa pagina Wikipedia no existe en español.

    Latino vote

    In terms of voter turnout, the Center for Immigration Studies projected that 52.7 percent (± 0.6) of eligible Hispanics will vote in the 2012 election, an increase from 49.9 percent in 2008 and a continuation of the past decade’s long upward trend. The projected Hispanic voter participation rate of 52.7 percent compares to 66.1 percent for non-Hispanic whites and 65.2 percent for non-Hispanic blacks in 2008.

    When you follow real money on Global Warming, you find Goldman Sachs as the first financial firm to explain that coal for power plants is now and forever in the future will be a money-losing investment. Then you find an increasing majority of utilities buying up all of the renewable power they can get, because it is cheaper than coal. Soon improved batteries will enable us to get rid of gas-fired plants for load balancing, and will make electric cars much cheaper than gas guzzlers. Coal, oil, and gas markets are all coming to their peaks and to massive crashes (especially fracking) or long slides to oblivion.

    Divestment from fossil carbon is not only moral, but financially prudent.

    while some Denialists are so arrogant that they think we can’t fix what we did, or worse that we shouldn’t.

    If we really want more than two parties to have a share in the national discussion, we should change to approval voting, where you can mark your ballot for all of those you agree with. That way, for example, Nader voters would not have been one of the many factors that sank Al Gore in Florida in 2000, while Nader’s true support would have shown in the poll numbers.

    As for Huckabee’s recurring bluff about taking the Christian Right out of the Republican Party, or Trump refusing to rule out a third-party bid,

    Popcorn, not booze! Let the party roll on!
