    1. The lifting of temporal and geographical constraints on communication nurtures the illusion of unlimited accessibility and mobility.

      The world is smaller but our brains are not capable of handling all this intimacy.

    1. The great ones have a thought pro-cess, philosophy and habit all rolled into one that overshadows the rest: I am responsible.
    1. "Most Native Americans did not neatly distinguish between the natural and the supernatural. Spiritual power permeated their world and was both tangible and accessible"

      This shows how much more open Natives were to the super Naturaul unlike the Europeans who were more than likely christians.

    2. my first question: is what do they mean exactly by "kinship"?

      My second question is: what does the reading mean by Chiefdoms?

    3. "Food surpluses enabled significant population growth, and the Pacific Northwest became one of the most densely populated regions of North America"

      This is significant because it shows how succesful the natives were before the Europeans showed up and spread native European diseases to Natives.

    1. But you think sometimes about what the real world is. Just what your brain mixes together from what your senses tell you. We create the world in a lot of ways. I suppose it shouldn’t be surprising that, when we’re not being careful, we can change it.

    1. That is, we are members of the same species.

      This is true but it used to be false. Biologists (Linnaeus) grouped different races into different species. That false classification still has modern-day ramifications.

    1. Epic Games announced about the tournament in June 2018 with plans of holding weekly tournaments starting later in 2018. However, there was a slight change in the format & timeline and, thus, the qualifiers for the Fortnite World Cup started in the month of April 2019. Players with top points in the qualifier rounds were invited for the finals that was held on July 2019 in New York. The total prize money for the tournament was $30 Million and the winner or winning team took home $3 Million, roughly 21 crores in INR.

      The world might be going gaga over PUBG but Epic Games owned battle royal game Fortnite is still holding on to the badge of being the most popular esports game in its category. This battle royale game has been generating billions of dollars for the gaming company with an audience/players spanning across different age groups and geographies.

    1. Dr. Macksey is known for keeping unconventional hours; he would get about three hours of sleep, and grocery shop in the middle of the night. Until recently, he would volunteer at The Book Thing at 3 am.

      I remember wrapping up movie screenings in Shriver Hall after midnight and making the receipts deposit at the bank drop in Gilman Hall. Quite often I would run into Macksey wrapping up in his office or on his way home. We'd often sit and chat in his office for an hour or two, talk on the way back to his house, or sometimes go back to Shriver and screen films we either happened to have on hand or from his personal collection.

    1. It is critical to understand that within systems, there is no isolation from the context, though we often view context as the invisible elephant in the room. When context is not addressed explicitly, equity issues are overlooked, and conversations about diversity in the science curriculum become only necessary for the poor, or students of color, or bilingual students. Issues of equity and context must be integrated in a wider systemic approach for the implementation of the NGSS to be deemed useful. We have to allow for boundary crossing and interdisciplinary connections into domains that make context and students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, girls, students of cultural and linguistic diversity, and students in urban, suburban, and rural areas want to engage in science and see themselves in science. We believe that a culturally responsive approach to the implementation of the NGSS will achieve this goal.

      It would be amazing to re-conceptualize the problem/s identified here using Popper's/Bereiter's 3-world ontology, specifically the affordances provided by World-3. W3 is 'inhabited by' abstract knowledge objects (aka cultural artifacts) created, worked-on, ignored, fought-over and rejected...or transformed/improved. The standards conceptualized like this and then engaging communities to develop relationships with these objects, apply and 'improve' them in their own worlds, as innovators, as professionals... This is a way to frame addressing the problem of 'implementation' of standards because, "...within systems, there is no isolation from the context..." This idea/description might need further development.
