Sometimes My Fellow Educators Embarrass Me

Suspended over a magic ring? Really?

A nine-year-old boy's love of The Lord of the Rings has gotten him in trouble with a power more terrible and despotic than Sauron himself: school administrators.

The boy, Aiden Steward, was suspended by officials at Kermit Elementary School in Kermit, Texas, after he tried to make a classmate disappear using his magic ring. Steward had just seen The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and was inspired by the timeless fantasy stories of J.R.R. Tolkien that have entertained kids, teens, and adults for generations.

Since Steward was not in possession of the One Ring To Rule Them All, his attempts at dark magic failed. Still, administrators considered it a "terroristic threat" and had no choice but to take action, according to Odessa American.

In the early days of my blog, I used to write a lot about zero tolerance policies and the stupidity that were at their heart. After all, failure to treat remotely similar things identically could lead to lawsuits and courtroom losses thus a plastic knife must be treated exactly like a broadsword lest the kid with the real weapon go scot-free due to inconsistent application of policy. Im sure that some school administrator felt compelled to suspend this kid on the off chance that another student might show up with a functioning magic want and begin killing classmates with Avada Kedavara spells and the school be unable to apply an appropriate punishment.

Thanks for the ideas you have discussed here. Yet another thing I would like to talk about is that laptop or computer memory requirements generally rise along with other breakthroughs in the technological know-how. For instance, any time new generations of processor chips are made in the market, there's usually a matching increase in the size and style preferences of both pc memory plus hard drive space. This is because the software operated by way of these processors will inevitably rise in power to benefit from the new engineering.

Where Arizona might have done its best work, though, is in the middle rounds, where developmental players S Rashad Johnson, OG Herman Johnson and CB Greg Toler could emerge as sound fixtures in the future.

Draft of the same year on the bottom rookie will be what?In general the draft should be able to blow the other party, who would have thought them took Owen on the 60th pick small Thomas in the same year, he turned out to be in the position of the challenger?
