Mark Zuckerberg just blew up Facebook from the inside

Zuckerberg is expected to change Facebook. The stated goal? "Make Facebook feel less like a depressing cesspool."

For much of the past few months, Mark Zuckerberg has been thinking aloud about Facebook's mission. He kept saying he wanted Facebook to become a place for meaningful social interaction. His resolution for 2018 was to "fix" Facebook. It was a call to arms, but for what? It wasn't clear how his musing...

Time to break out the handy "Mass shooting in US checklist": 1. Send thoughts & prayers but not actually do anything useful✔ 2. Argue over semantics of the term "assault rifle"✔ 3. Argue over semantics of the term "terrorist" - if Muslim use it, if Christian use term "lone wolf" ✔ 4. Congress does nothing but NRA increases donations just in case ✔ 5. Attribute shooting to mental health issues ✔️ 6. Wait for next one, repeat ✔️

There was another school shooting in Texas this week... Not much publicity about it because no one died ..

Was it "Take You Gun to School" day? I mean,ya know,Kentucky.

Do you think all kids should know how to write in cursive? ... See MoreSee Less

Shows how lazy some teachers are becoming. It takes effort to teach cursive.

Yes, I didn't think it was a problem until a kid getting his drivers license did not know how to sign his name in cursive on the license. All of this country's founding documents - like the Constitution are written in cursive. I have watched a lot of younger people in our meetings at work and they have trouble taking notes because they are printing instead of writing quickly in cursive. Also, when handwritten notes come across their desk they can't read them.

Not a priority in this technology age. The nostalgia in me says yes! I had to learn cursive. However, if you think about the jobs these kids are going to face in the future...I doubt they’re going to run into much cursive.

I’d be interested in knowing the age breakdown of the people answering this question. My guess would be that the millennials and younger would say no, and the older, would say yes. We’re in a transition. Eventually there will be less and less paper used and everything will transition to digital. There won’t be a need for cursive. Perhaps everyone will have their own unique symbol, like Prince. Cursive will be the new Latin.

Also known as the secrete ode the millianals can't break

Yes!!! There will be forms in their life that they will have to sign legally and asked for a signature

Please put it back in the curriculum!!!! I teach my 8 yr old on my own. My older boys learned and I make them practice it.

Yes, imagine their signatures lmao won't be hard to forge since they'll look like chicken scratch Taylor Madison

Cursive allows for faster writing. I'm all about using my time wisely.

They need to know how to write and read it.

We teach our teenage kids & younger kids to write cursive handwriting. We went to a teacher supply store & bought both print & cursive alphabet desk tape. Put them both on write on wipe off handwriting sheets & use dry erase markers. User friendly, reusable, & are recyclable. Inexpensive to make. Our kids like learning to write cursive handwriting & see how often daily myself & other grown ups use it. Besides there's historical documents in cursive handwriting & if they can't write/read it then they'll never be able to read the documents. They'll always have to ask someone to read it for them? Seem silly the schools don't teach this especially knowing how important it's needed for them to know how to do. We also use red & blue color overlays to help with our kids reading. As both our kids are Dyslexic & one has Epilepsy / ADD & the other is Autistic /ADHD. I know there's websites & apps online to help teach cursive handwriting. But it turns out teaching it "old school, by hand" works best & is easier to learn to do.

The constitution is in cursive and my children are reading it ... i took it upon my self to teach my kids cursive when they started to write. In 5th grade my Kids Are required to read and rewrite the ensable of the constitution in which is in cursive.... other peers of theirs have no clue how to read this! I can not understand how your going to ask of the kids to read cursive and yet none of the teachers are teaching it. We are paying for their education i want them to have the best .. the education system is a huge disappointment!!!!

If you don't write in cursive, how are you going to keep someone from stealing your identity? How do you match signatures at the bank if everyone is printing their name? How do you read cursive if you were never taught it? To ask this question is really dumb. Just as dumb as common core math!

Yes... learn to write it and read it. Technology has become a crutch ... wanna buy that car or house or get that drivers license? Gotta have a signature on it!!

Yes. They need to be able to sign documents, as well as understand how to read cursive writing.

What a waste of valuable class time. Nobody uses cursive, but more STEM would be time well spent. Cursive is a novelty, kinda like calligraphy was. It’s the electronics age, learn the keyboard!

Absolutely because that is part of being an adult!! You ha e to sign your name to all documents and not print!! Put cursive back into school!!

Well, without cursive writing, they will never be able to read historical documents. So yeah, kind of important.

I think it juat something they can use,it will add a personal touch ti some

Yes,they need to learn how to write their name.

Yes, I'm 64 and it was required in elementary Jr.High and High School

YES they should need to know how ,,,

Yes I agree it should be taught in school it did before so why not now

Yes. Or they can block print like a first grader their entire life.

Alvin ISD still does cursive... well my 2 still do

I learned that who doesn’t look for you, doesn’t miss you and who doesn’t miss you doesn’t care for you… that destiny determines who enters your life but you decide who stays… that the truth hurts only once and a lie every time you remember it. There are three things in life that leave and never return: words, time and opportunities… therefore, value whoever values you and don’t treat as a priority whoever treats you as an option.
