From CN College News:
Eddie Fisher has been known for more than 40 hit songs during the 1950’s, as well as for a tumultuous personal life that included addiction and several marriages.
The son of Russian-born, Jewish, immigrant parents, Fisher became a real idol in his time, just when rock and roll was gaining popularity.
He was married to not only actress and singer Connie Stevens, actress and singer Debbie Reynolds, but also to Elizabeth Taylor, the Washington Post said.
Fisher had two children with Debbie Reynolds, most notably Carrie Fisher, who is known for the role of Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. Actress Joely Fisher, currently known for roles on the shows “Ellen” and “‘Til Death”, is Fisher’s daughter with Connie Stevens.

I read an article about a documentary that I hope to see ASAP called "Waiting for 'Superman'" and was going to post the article, but have grown tired of making new google accounts, SO i was wondering if you would post the article with you're opinion on the state of public education in america, or even just Nevada.
here is the link: http://www.dailynews.com/news/ci_16156438?source=rss

|Subject:||an article i found interesting...|
Hi Mr. Lynch. I wasn't sure how to send you an article for your blog so I just figured i'd e-mail it to you to see if you liked it. I liked it because of the title of mixing art and men. Usually men don't like to go to museums and I like art. So here's something i found interesting, hope you do too.

Andrew Jackson, the "westerner" who shook up the early ninteenth century with "populism", "the people's White House" and "bring the government back to the people" is also responsible for the road to dominance of America through manifest destiny, "the trail of tears", elminiation of entire bands of Native Americans, the expansion of slavery and the largest recession of the 19th century. This rough edged yet strong leader and statesman is the subject of, believe it or not, a rock musical comedy opening on Broadway.
"Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson" began five years ago with a meeting between creative individuals who had never mounted a musical, much less a Broadway musical. Billed as a "musical comedy" the show uses rock music to bring the issues of the early nineteenth century into the focus of the early twenty first century.
NPR's Talk of the nation features an interview with the author of the "book" and lyrics", co-creator Alex Timbers, who was asked why he put "the man" into "manifest destiny."
Students Use Wikipedia Early and Often, Study Shows
The most common reason that students reported using Wikipedia was to obtain background information or a summary about a topic and to get started with research.
Only 16 percent of survey respondents said they used Wikipedia because of its wiki capabilities.
Students were far more likely to use Wikipedia at the very begining or near the begining of research than at the end of the process.
The study also examined which students were most likely to use Wikipedia. Those majoring in architecture, engineering, or science were likelier than others to do so.
The strongest predictor was the use of Google for course-related research. In addition, students at two-year colleges were less likely than those at four-year colleges to use Wikipedia. And students who reported consulting with librarians were less likely to use Wikipedia than other students were.
Now consider the following from the CSN Com 101
But both are encyclopedia sources.
They are directory media, where you go to seek out the initial information.
In the case of Wikipedia, since it is member generated inaccurate material makes it onto the pages of Wikipedia on a regular basis. When you read it or try to use is, keep in mind that there is bias from whomever make or altered the posting, and that while editors attempt to catch errors, the postings on Wikipedia are not juried for accuracy.
