Go to a domain registry company (such as godaddy . com) and register a domain that either matches your business or your name (firstlast.com) . You can then configure your gmail account to send and receive emails for your new domain. So, you can xyz@gmail.com, and be able to send and receive emails at first@firstlast.com (like John@johnSmith.com) [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Multiple episodes of Real Housewives of NYC was recently broadcast on Bravo. I have some questions for posters who are familiar with the school application process. First, was Francois undergoing the ERB when he was filmed during an evaluation? Alex wrote in her blog on Bravo, "Reports overall on F’s evaluations have been excellent." She did not report any scores, however. (Some posters have noted that the written report for ERBs is effusively positive regardless of the child's scores.) Second, will Alex's graphic nude "modeling" sessions with pornographer/photographer Bob Coulter effect Francois' admission to tt private schools? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Not erb. Some two bit shrink pretending to do Stanford Binet for the camera. Child ended up at zoned public per season 1 finale--he's, at best, average. No private school would touch that dc with a ten foot pole even IF his parents hadn't been on RHONY (to say nothing of the photos). [ Reply | More ]

Do children receive numerical scores for Stanford Binet? Alex did not share any quantified results, although she wrote Francois is a "sophisticated communicator and excels in verbal abstract reasoning as well as visual spatial reasoning." Are these phrases typical in Stanford Binet results? [ Reply | More ]

There are numerical scores for all IQ tests. This one, though, was clearly done solely for the camera. What was shown was probably the whole "test". [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] wwyd? boy in dc's kindergarten class is always in trouble. he can't sit still, hits, pushes, shoves, doesn't follow directions. you get the picture. anyway, i have been volunteering once a week and while he is a sweet kid i can see how he can be a drain on the teacher. so today i am leaving and his mom is picking him up in her beat up car and she looks and acts wired on coke. actually, i can't say for sure that she was the mom, but she is a caregiver nonetheless. anyway, obviously he has tons of home issues from the one minute i observed her - she also did some random stop in the middle of the road as parents were trying to pull out and seemed to be trying to do something. the look on the boys faces in the back seat looked like they were scared. so my question is, since i have a good rapport with dc's teacher, should i mention my observation? i can just say something like, "have you meant his mother" or something. or just mmob. he is always in trouble - but he's just 5! - and i would be doing it to help him, not punish him more if that makes any sense. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

i have no idea if she gives them coke. it was him and his older brother (a year or two older) in the car. she just looked like a big mess. and yes, if you've only seen someone coked out in movies: that's what she looked like. skinny, dark circles under her eyes that were bugging out and looking rapidly this way and that. and her jaw was twitching. clear signs of some kind of drug (i just said coke as opposed to pot or alcohol) it just made me so sad yet seemed to confirm why this boy is constantly getting time outs and having soooo many issues at school. it's non-stop with him. so sad and i just wish i could nip it in the bud for his sake [ Reply | More ]

really? that's what i initially thought too, but then i feel like i could approach the teacher tactfully without specifics of the time i saw the mom. maybe just talk to her about the boy and see what her thoughts are and if she even knows anything about his family life. she can send notes home to the parents all she wants, but if they aren't advocates for their child's education and don't care, it won't do a darn thing. now if she maybe asked the mom to come in once a week for a conference or something - she might end up seeing what i saw [ Reply | More ]
