[ - ] An old money New York couple I know is moving to Phoenix. He's a surgeon, and she's a SAHM. He's 31, she's 28. No kid yet. I don't understand why they would want to move to a dessert full of strip malls and white trash low culture people. Phoenix is all retired real estate agents who golf all day. Just seems so boring. Surprised that two people who are so into culture, travel, and arts would move to a wasteland like Phoenix. I know he got a good job there, but he has a good job in NYC. What's the appeal of Phoenix? It's deathly hot out all the time. There are no seasons. The best university in the state is the the nation's biggest party/safety school. And you're surrounded by drug cartel border crime from Mexico. For people who have so much money they can easily live anywhere, I just don't see the appeal. 36 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

People here are so NYC centric. Phoenix, like any other city, has ballet companies, opera companies, theater companies, art museums, ethnic cuisine, and all the other features of any major city. Sure they may not have as many broadway shows or as many arts venues, but unless you are literally doing that stuff every day it's not an issue. You can find things to do every weekend in Phoenix with no problem. People here really need to get out of their bubble. There's a whole world out there. And Phoenix has lots of outdoorsy stuff like hiking trails and biking through mountains that NYC just doesn't. [ Reply | More ]

People won't be honest with you. My thoughts are - ace the math section. The first one you miss in math takes you down 50 points. So if you are a math kid make sure you focus there and get perfect score if at all possible. Make sure your child knows the geometry. Then learn the logic style. Those are in enjsh but easy for math kid. Scrambled paragraphs have the least return on investment. Cleaning on e you learn the basic tricks you don't tend to improve your score much so don't spend time and effort there. And your kid will miss some enjsh - but if perfect math and logic score will get him in. Good luck! [ Reply | More ]

I think it has always happened, we just read about it more now. I'm guessing (hoping) it happens less frequently. I think the root of it is that when you are a teacher, you spend most of your workday with students, not teachers or other adults. And some of those students are very impressive. But it's a skewed view, because you only really see how sophisticated they are in their approach to Physics or History or whatever subject you teach. I can see how a lonely or odd teacher can fall for a student, but I think it's a disastrous and unfair situation for everyone involved--even for the grad students I know who dated professors, it never seemed to be a healthy relationship. I'd never do it. [ Reply | More ]

Ha. It always seems like the ones you wish were involved aren't and vice versa. For me, I like knowing the parents--I usually have very good relationships with them--but when a kid is in high school, her parents don't need to be too involved. She should be learning how to deal with school and academics on her own. (I love it if the parents get excited about the books we read or the language we are learning, but someone who seems to be asking me a lot of questions on behalf of their kids can be a bit much to take. I've had parents who wanted me to be constantly discussing matters with their kid's tutor--that was the most irritating.) Bottom line: in high school I feel like the kids are learning how to function more like adults, so the less hand-holding by parents, the better it is. [ Reply | More ]

Oh yeah. Not all bright people are academically ambitious. I had a student who became one of my best, but that was only in the final semester of senior year. Up until that point she seemed to have avoided any challenge. I wish I knew an answer. Perhaps the key is encouraging kids even when they fail and showing them that they can learn from it and get better. I do feel like everyone has passions and interests that they are ambitious about--in American schools, though, it is common that the more academic/athletic ambitions are praised and rewarded. The kid who would be a great artist or pastry chef may not be getting the encouragement they need. Sorry, I wish I had a good answer. I'm just guessing. [ Reply | More ]

The first school, and perhaps academically the best, I taught at was a private school with more artistic-leanings among the parents. I loved it. But I also made so little money that teaching was like a fairly expensive hobby. I was never interested in getting a teaching degree--I'd rather study the subjects--so I don't have many options to teach public, but my impression is that public schools have such prescriptive curricula, that I would go nuts. I'm not someone that likes to have someone else think out my teaching. So I teach at private schools, and the most prestigious private schools tend to serve a fairly wealthy crowd, so that's where I tend to go. [ Reply | More ]

This opinion is based on anecdotal evidence but I believe there are far more Jewish communities in LA area than in SF. In fact, a former co-worker moved there for that very reason, and soon found a nice orthodox Jewish woman to marry. Your reasons for not moving to a particular city though are fairly immature. Do you really think that everyone who lives in LA is a TV or movie buff? Or that everyone in SF/Silicon valley works in tech? SF is not all that hippyish either (perhaps you are thinking of Berkley right across the bay). [ Reply | More ]

I know it seems weird but if they're really saved -- which I hope they are - this is what happens. People change completely. Part of the change is the saved person's life totally transforms. They end up losing most if not all the people they know. That's just par for the course. You and your family's reaction is normal. What he did was wrong and adultery is actually the single sanctioned cause of divorce in the bible. But if their conversion is real, I can see how they got past it. [ Reply | More ]

Not quite. Yes they are God's chosen people, but they have been suffering for turning away from him for centuries. Just as the bible said they would. in fact, the bible says their eyes have been blinded to the truth about Jesus because they insisted on not following him. When they called for his crucifixion at the trial with Pontius Pilate and chose Barnabas to be set free instead (as was tradition) they called down the curse of His blood upon them and all their children. We are only saved if we come to God through Jesus Christ. That is the only way. God has a special dispensation for the Jews in the end times. [ Reply | More ]

Many people believe the people we call Jews are not the real Jews of the bible. That the real Jews are in fact those particular black people who were involved in slavery. I.e. Not all Africans. The case is strong. Everything lines up. [ Reply | More ]

So, if you renounce Jesus and do "not follow him," you'll be cursed and so will all of your children? Even though your children did nothing? [ Reply | More ]

No. We are responsible for ourselves. The people who called for his crucifixion called a curse down on themselves - that if Jesus really was the son of God as he claimed and they were killing him - that they would accept the punishment. We are instructed as parents to raise up our children in the way they should go (with faith in Jesus). There are definitely such things as generational curses, though. They are let in through sin. This is why a family gets plagues by things like suicide and mental illness and poverty. We have to pray for those curses to be broken. [ Reply | More ]

You can be cursed and still get saved. Generational curses exist as a means of showing God's disapproval for certain sins. Maybe we would be less quick to do things if we knew our children would suffer. [ Reply | More ]

This does not answer the question. That's like convicting someone for a murder they didn't commit and then, saying, "Don't worry. You can appeal it later. We just want everyone to know that we really hate murder." Come on. This does not make sense to you. [ Reply | More ]

I'm not communicating this clearly. We're conflating two different things: salvation and curses. Let me go back. You said if you renounce Jesus are you cursed. The answer is you will not be saved from hell. Your children are separate. They can follow Jesus and be saved. As far as curses, you can introduce them into your bloodline. It doesn't mean damnation necessarily. It means you have a curse (of whatever type). People make it to heaven despite living under a curse. Is that clearer? [ Reply | More ]

The story of Job ends with him having everything returned to him, and multiplied. Satan questioned God saying people will not follow you unless you bless them. God said "have you considered my servant Job?" He was a righteous man. Satan said if you took away everything he had he would curse you to your face. God agreed to let Satan mess with Job but not take his life. Job then lost everything. But he kept his faith in God. In the end he had everything given back to him - more than before. When you say what I'm saying is not in the bible, I'm wondering what you're reading? All of this is easily found. http://m.sparknotes.com/lit/oldtestament/section11.rhtml [ Reply | More ]

The people at the crucifixion calling for Jesus to be killed asked for a special punishment, essentially. Some interpret that as the blindness of the subsequent generations - the people who can't see Jesus is the messiah. He's foreshadowed and typed throughout the Old Testament. But many still can't see it and therefore reject the New Testament, which is the new covenant of salvation by grave through faith in Christ. [ Reply | More ]

A special punishment? This is not in my Bible. And why would they ask for a special curse on their families? Don't you think it's a little convenient? "I am the one and only God and everyone who doesn't believe in me, it's just because I made it so you can't see me!" It's the equivalent argument to, "I knew the answer. I was just testing you to see if you knew it." [ Reply | More ]

When you curse yourself by the blood of Jesus as the people at the crucifixion did, that is a different (special) kind of curse. (I should have used the word curse and not punishment since it's not the same thing). People curse themselves and others all day long - from small things like "I have a terrible memory" or "I'll never lose this weight" or "I hope she dies in a fire" to big things like Freemasonry, in which you undergo rituals renouncing God (this is at the higher degrees of freemasonry). Cursing yourself by Gods blood is beyond. I hear what you're saying and it's totally legitimate. What you're overlooking is the history of Israel (God's chosen people). They have been unfaithful to God and turned from him since the beginning. Even when they were wandering in the desert for 40 years and he was performing miracles among them. But God will be faithful to his people because he said he would. Not because of anything his people do or not do. But in order to remain a just God, there will have to be a special dispensation where he will reconcile his people back to him. The bible talks about a special dispensation for the Jews in the end times - which we are getting into now. The bible does not say all Jews will make it to heaven. It says all who believe in Jesus will. [ Reply | More ]

I hear you but that is emphatically not what the bible teaches in this case. The bible says the man is the covering of the woman and he is to love and protect her. She is to accept his leadership.

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. 14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar. 15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. 16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. 17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. 18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. 19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. 20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. 21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. 22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. 23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. 24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. 25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. 26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. 27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. 28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. 29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. 30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

could be autoimmune. my drs were convinced i had MS but i didn't, failed to diagnose me with any known autoimmune disease, and finally attributed my come-and-go symptoms to "probably a rare autoimmune disease that has no name." nbd. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] What's going on with the principal at Stuy? Who's taking over and what's the outlook for the future of the school? I thought I saw a post about this but can't find it now. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Are you sure it's Stuy and not Hunter? I didn't hear anything about Stuy. [ Reply | More ]

She is not staying on. She retires with pension and gets salary from new job (probably housing too) [ Reply | More ]

The articles in the press don't reveal anything about how Stuy will be handling this. Anyone know? Seems like a blow for the school. [ Reply | More ]

All I know is they say an interim will be named in July. Not much of a blow. She was only there 4 years and accomplished little. Looking forward to hopefully a strong leader with a vision. Fingers crossed. [ Reply | More ]

You're doomed because your DD made a simple mistake? I hope you're joking, op. If not, it's your DD who's doomed because she has you for a mother. [ Reply | More ]

I am joking, of course. She thought it would be pretty as a choker necklace, but I had a flash of my little girl with a neck tattoo! [ Reply | More ]

I know! I should have stood my ground. But they do them at her day camp and she saw ones that she wanted at the store. And I said yes. And now I've set her up for a lifetime of robbing liquor stores. [ Reply | More ]
