Taking the SAT Reasoning Test: what you need to know
The letters SAT aren’t a strange acronym anymore because this is what everyone refers to and understands. The SAT Reasoning Test was introduced in 2005. As its name suggests, the exam is a test of reasoning, the ability to work on problems in a logical way and most of the exam is multiple choice style questions. However, when replying to multiple choice questions (MCQ), it is very important that students are attentive and careful. You are penalized for wrong answers and if you continue to give incorrect answers it could seriously affect the final rating, even if you have answered many ...
The importance of tutoring services
Millions of students across the country need additional assistance both in and outside of school hours in a wide range of topics. Students who have difficulty in math, science, social studies, history or reading and writing require tutoring services so they can have a chance to continue the following year. For those who do not receive such services, to continue their education can be a huge challenge and burden for the public school system of the state. How do the tutoring services work? Many tutoring services are available in mid to large cities across the country. These services offer both one-on-one and ...
The importance of specialized preschool education
The child's brain is developing at a staggering rate between the ages of 2 to 6 years. If your child is entering kindergarten at 5 years, it means losing 3 years of education to no purpose! As usual learning at home is a great disadvantage compared to specialized preschool education because it can do wonders when your child reaches the age of 5. And even a standard kindergarten just may not suit for every child. Actually, many preschool programs and teachers have focused on the main things that kids need to learn before entering kindergarten: how to listen, be silent, and ...

I used to always have Morningstar Farms black bean burgers in the freezer for a back-up dinner. Then I discovered this recipe in an old issue of Better Homes and Gardens and realized I can make burgers that are even better. I still can’t get my husband to eat these, so I freeze the extras. I even like them without a bun. Just cover them with sour cream and avocado slices and you’re set.

What a week. My son was married a week ago. I picked him and his bride up from their honeymoon last night. In between I took a trip to Texas for a Microsoft conference and celebrated my birthday while away. At least my bride was with me and I was able to meet up with my brother and sister in law who live in Texas. But a crazy week. I still managed to collect a few good links though. And if you didn’t see it I listed my 10 Most Popular Posts June and July 2010.
This (Visually-Impaired Student Solves Accessibility Challenge, Becomes an Entrepreneur ) is a great post by Cameron Evans (Microsoft CTO for Education) about David Hayden and Team Note-Taker who won the Tablet part of the Imagine Cup this year.

Nagurski went both ways, in the backfield and on defense. Owen Marecic joins the club.
With the onset of fall camp comes the annual rite of fall passage: coaches across America, madly plotting and scheming, entertain the idea of utilizing their top talent — gasp — on both sides of the ball. This type of talk is reserved for two types of players, by and large. The first is this year’s prized recruit, whose high school highlight tape, if it can be believed, indicated all-American ability as a wide receiver, cornerback, kick returner, what have you. This is more common; perhaps some coaches use this promise as a recruiting ploy — we’ll give you an opportunity no other school can offer. This scenario is also suggested for athletic upperclassmen, usually a defender moving to the offensive side of the ball, less often vice versa. This talk starts now, ends, oh, by Sept. 1.
The discussion continues at Stanford. Jim Harbaugh has remained committed to playing potential all-American fullback Owen Marecic both in his customary spot and at inside linebacker in the Cardinal’s new 3-4 base set. Yes, a fullback going both ways. The last fullback who did so? Bronko Nagurski?
Harbaugh isn’t playing lip service to the idea: as of today, Marecic sits atop the depth chart both at on offense and at inside linebacker. Will this stand? There’s no reason, based upon what Harbaugh has stated throughout the spring and summer, that Marecic won’t pull double duties.
On the offensive side of the ball, Marecic is one of the finest fullbacks in the country. He’s a three-time honorable mention all-conference pick, largely for the job he has done opening up holes for Stanford’s running backs –Toby Gerhart, most notably. Unlike his Pac-10 neighbor, U.S.C.’s Stanley Havili, Marecic is not asked to do much more than that. To be fair, Marecic is a solid receiver: he finished last fall with 8 receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown, though he added only 15 yards on the ground.
As for Marecic’s future on defense, the senior does bring experience at linebacker to the table. He started in the middle in Stanford’s November win over Oregon last fall, as well as serving in certain short-yardage and goal line packages throughout the season. Yes, he’s a fullback first, linebacker second. But it’s not as if Marecic is a blank slate, a player only now learning the intricacies of the defensive side of the ball heading into his senior season.
Nevertheless, what does this say about Stanford’s defense? Well, it certainly makes a statement about a lack of depth in the front seven, for starters. In a perfect world, a player this important to the health of the running game — and thereby the health of the offense altogether — would focus on that primary goal, not spreading himself too thin.
If Stanford had remained in the 4-3, its base set under former defensive coordinator Andy Buh, Marecic’s services would not be needed — at least to this degree. The senior would have remained a piece of the puzzle on defense, just not in the starting lineup. In Stanford was to remain in last year’s defensive alignment, sophomore Shayne Skov would start in the middle, flanked by junior Thomas Keiser and sophomore Chase Thomas.
The new look will ask more of Marecic, of course. Stanford could also turn to senior Chike Amajoyi, should Marecic tire — which he’s sure to do. Amajoyi has made 17 starts over the last three years, including the first six games of 2009. This type of experienced depth will help.
Yes, Marecic’s two-way move makes a statement about the Stanford defense: in a perfect world, your all-American fullback would not also be your starting inside linebacker — not in this day and age, obviously. This plan also makes a statement about Marecic, however: he’s a superb athlete, even if a fullback, and perhaps the key to Stanford’s performance on both sides of the ball.Tags: Marecic, Marecic Spreads

The Division II Network Permits Division II Student-Athletes the Opportunity to Define Themselves
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Division II student-athletes now have a powerful new way to tell their story.
A new component to the Division II Network – D2sa.org – will permit Division II student-athletes the opportunity to define themselves and to interact in a way that has never been done in the NCAA.
The site, which will act as a complement to the already-existent Division II game-environment and community-engagement sites, will encourage student-athlete blogging and will also facilitate discussions on important matters such as legislation and fund-raising for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The new site is highly visual, relying extensively on photo galleries and a videoplayer. StudTags: Division Ii, Network
