OMG!! Cheer is “officially” on its way to becoming a “Sport”, at least inRead More New York!!! New York, you rule! Hey, NFL- How about paying NFL Cheerleader’s a living wage! Better yet, treat them like the athletes they were meant to be by introducing cheer competitions into NFL Cheer! CALLING all NFL Fans & Cheerleading Fans & Athletes everywhere - Please show your support by signing & distributing my petition to pay NFL Cheerleaders a livable wage: www.change.org/NFLCheerleaders, and together, we can make a difference! Benefits of introducing Cheer Competitions into the NFL: NFL will generate additional revenue by adding cheer competitions during half time (10-minutes out of the half-time schedule), with “NFL Cheer Play-Offs” & “NFL Cheer Bowl” at the conclusion of the NFL Super Bowl. Cheerleading has a HUGE following- the stands will be filled (have you attended a National Cheerleading event lately?), not to mention all of the additional cheer merchandise! NFL Cheerleaders will finally receive the respect and pay they so deserve! Heck NFL, they might even stop suing you! Maybe the NFL also hires MEN on ALL cheerleading squads (it’s called “diversity”), as cheerleading isn’t just for women & girls! As the saying goes “Weights are for Wimps, Cheerleaders Pick up People”! And finally, the Public will benefit by the additional jobs created (e.g. cheer judges, etc), more safety & money will be interjected into the Cheer Community (pay NFL Cheerleaders an athlete’s salary & watch the money flow) and NFL Cheerleaders will once again be shown on t.v. (ever wonder why they seldom televise NFL Cheerleaders?), not to mention the great entertainment value competition cheerleading brings (have you seen the “Infinite Champions League Cheerleading Event” that was televised in movie theaters around the country on April 10th- they are AMAZING athletes to watch!). Cheers, Diane Todd (“Cheerleader for the Cheerleaders”)

This is long overdue. Think about this, though. It has taken until 2014 to get this on the RegentsRead More Docket, and it is still awaiting final action by the full Board of Regents, which will then kick-off the processes with SED and the Athletic Associations and Regional Sections for promulgating regulations and rule-making, establishing schedules, events, tournaments, and championship standards, procedures and awards. But at least things are moving forward, here...in 2014 on into 2015. Unless the Regents change their collective mindset.

It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

I just finished reading through that sleep study that you quoted in contemporary pediatrics. It wasRead More quite an interesting and enlightening article. However, it only supports your claims after you minimized the primary factors contributing to those sleep disorders; poor sleep behaviors, environmentals, etc. Eliminating/reducing of the hours of late night TV, computer use, cell phone use is their first and most important stimulant to curb. The electionic light exposure is the problem. Then secondly, comes caffeine based drinks; sodas, coffees, teas and pills. Yes, page three of the article does support your claims backed by studies but let's be real here. There are parents that don't even know their children are watching/creating porn on their (babysitting devices, a.k.a. ipads) instead of doing their homework in the first place! What you're clearly suggesting is beyond the mass majority due to a lack of their own span of attention/ mindless reality tv viewing/ slutty gossip magazine reading public. The family unit needs to be in order before you go and revamp the entire school district at great expense and inconvenience to all the working stiffs (working more than one job to make ends meet). When people start taking accountability for their own problems and still cannot yield the desired results, then bring up the study again over a cup of coffee. ;-)

This discussion should focus on finding what really works best to learn. Wake up call at 6 am forRead More high schoolers will change, as it's simply not required. Walking into a building for 6 hours a day to take classes in 40 minute intervals is absurd. Bombarding teens with data points on 6-8 different subjects per day needs review for efficacy. Immersive learning enables learning. Stay for an hour. Absorb. Question. Discuss. Apply. That's how many people learn best. This "speed dating" type structure has got to change.

Guess what, climate change is a better, more accurate term than the debunked global warmingRead More nonsense. It's occured thousands of times in the Earth's history. Both sides on this issue can agree on that, can't they? But, IMO humans didn't cause it directly, and cannot alter or stop it. The most critical negative human impact here is simple: too many people! Most of the Third World has NO access to birth control, and the vaunted UN doesn't seem to care. Even China relaxed it's stringent one-child-per-couple policy. Helping people limit their numbers might mitigate this problem. But I refuse to agree w/the Leftists Dems that we are some how to blame. Also, scientists who believe this theory make their paychecks off of scaring citizens, so they're incapable of being neutral.
