Authors at Google: Gene Baur | "Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food"
Many people picture cows, sheep, pigs, and chickens as friendly creatures who live happily within the confines of a peaceful family farm, arriving as food for humans only at the end of their sun-drenched lives. That's what Gene Baur had been told -- but when he first visited a stockyard he realized that this rosy depiction couldn't be more inaccurate. Amid the stench, noise, and filth, his attention was drawn in particular to one sheep who had been cast aside for dead. But as Baur walked by, th

Play - a four letter word or the key to learning? (Professor Pat broadhead - Inaugural Lecture)
Over my time in education, I have seen play in educational settings lose its status, more especially as children progress into reception classes and into key stage one. I have seen young, active learners, often boys but not always, labelled as ‘naughty’ and ‘inattentive’ when the requirements of educators, fuelled by government policy, have required that they become ‘stationary learners’. As play is once again becoming ‘fashionable’, (evidenced by its recurring status in the medi

The first picture is of Christopher Marlowe, who was born in 1564. He said,"all they that love not Tobacco and Boys are fools." He was almost exactly the same age as Shakespeare. They were certainly good friends, at least, but whether they were more than just good friends, who knows? They might have collaborated on some of the plays. It's one of them conspi
