<![CDATA[The Best Fictional Teachers]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-fictional-teachers
There are a bunch of movies that feature teachers prominently. In most movies, teachers are a nameless bunch who often times lurk in the background and don't play much of a role in shaping the plot line. The fictional teachers on this list are different. They play prominent roles in the movies they are in and their teaching and mentoring of the characters is an integral part of the movie. Whenever Robin Williams is sporting a thick beard, he is playing a serious role. Playing the parts of John Keating in Dead Poets Society and Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting, Williams thrived as these characters and they are considered two of the best fictional teachers in movie.

Though he's not a teacher in the traditional sense, Mr. Miyagi proved to be one of the greatest mentors in movie history. He taught Daniel LaRusso (and later Julie Pierce) discipline and how to outsmart and outthink his opponents. On the opposite end of the spectrum is Dewey Finn, played by Jack Black in School of Rock. Not a teacher by trade, Finn taught his class of 10-year-olds life lessons and how to play rock music and by the end of the film, learned a thing or two about himself.

Vote for the teach you think is the best fictional teacher. If there is anyone missing from this list, feel free to add him or her.

<![CDATA[Best Uniforms Ever]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-uniforms-ever/ranker-shopping
Uniforms are the easiest and most convenient way to make sure that your kids always look snazzy for school. They help eliminate jealousy and clothing envy among children and young adults, and act as a neutralizer. Some employers also require workers to wear uniforms so that they are easily recognizable as staff by guests. They also make choosing an outfit in the morning much less of a hassle. Most uniforms come in a few basic colors and patterns that look great and always go together. If you're wearing the uniform to work, you can always personalize it by choosing unique patterns and colors that show off your style. 
 
These are some of the highest-rated articles of uniform clothing on the market. Dickies is a high-quality brand that offers pique polos for boys, and v-neck shirts for girls. The most popular colors of these uniforms are khaki, black, and navy blue. Popular uniform bottoms for ladies are pleated scooters with side buckle accents, or scooters with belted four-button wraps. Uniform bottoms for young men can include flat-front pants and shorts that are worth the price! Unisex work pants, or stitch cargo pants, add a classy flare to any adult work uniform.

The best safety schools and universities aren't necessarily everyone's first choice, but are great fallback options when you're applying to college. A good safety school is easier to get into than a top-tier university, and often has equally good academic programs. As college admissions are getting tougher and tougher, having a list of good safety schools that you wouldn't mind attending is always a good idea.

<![CDATA[The Easiest Language to Learn]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/the-easiest-language-to-learn-_for-native-english-speakers_/eriknatanaelgustafsson

http://www.ranker.com/list/the-easiest-language-to-learn-_for-native-english-speakers_/eriknatanaelgustafsson,

Slovio
Slovio is an easy conlang that is to Slavic languages what Lingua Franca Nova and Interlingua are to romance languages. In addition to being intelligible to speakers of the various Slavic dialects, Slovio is specifically meant to be the easiest introduction to speakers of non-Slavic languages who want to learn a difficult language like Russian, Polish, Serbo-Croatian, Czech, Slovak, Slovenian, etc.  Since Slovio is highly regular and can be written in both Latin and Cyrillic alphabets, it can obviously be useful for students trying to learn to the Cyrillic writing system.
 
Slovio.org

Lingua Franca Nova
A modern constructed auxiliary language based on romance language creoles which tend to have simpler grammar rules than parent languages.  It's also likely easier than other "conlangs" because of the natural sound and the high number of English cognates. 

Lingua Franca Nova can also be written in Cyrillic letters.  

Lingua Franca Nova Wiki

 LFN Homepage
Lojban
A recent conlang based on logical, clear communication and cultural neutrality (Lobjan vocabulary is rooted in Mandarin, English, Hindi, Spanish, Russian, and Arabic). Proponents consider it the optimal fully auxiliary language when considering unambiguous/clear understanding.  Detractors say its unnatural and better as a tool for computers/artificial intelligence.  

 Still, I suspect both scientists and science fiction authors would find Lojban the best choice if we need to attempt communication with intelligent extra-terrestrials.  I also suspect some IAL experts would recommend a non-spoken constructed language, Blissymbols.  As a pictograph language, it might be easier to communicate with a hypothetical people who couldn't produce the sounds of human language.  However, with the internet, a language that can be typed with a standard keyboard would be far more useful.  



Lojban.org

Learning Resources

Interlingua
Similar to Lingua Franca Nova, but possibly more complex. Since Lingua Franca Nova is based on Romance creoles, it's likely simpler. Meanwhile, according to Wikipedia, Interlingua is modernized Latin. But it's regularity makes it easy to learn, and it is still intelligible to speakers of most or all romance languages. Interlingua does allow for a small number of irregularities for the sake of naturalism and it's also acquired loan words from non-romance languages like Russian.   

 According to Wikipedia, an experiment showed students of Interlingua could translate complex Spanish texts more easily than students who had studied Spanish, indicating that the regularity of Interlingua helped students "grasp  the mechanisms of language quickly." 
 
Both Lingua Franca Nova and Interlingua may be more useful to dyslexia sufferers than English or most natural languages.  According to Skeptics Stack Exchange, Spanish speakers and speakers of other languages that are phonetic or nearly phonetic (like Finnish, Hungarian, or Bahasa) have many fewer instances of dyslexia and problems are easier to correct at an early age.  Because Lingua Franca Nova and Interlingua are free of irregular words and diacritical marks, they would be even more beneficial. 

interlingua.com
Novial
Otto Jespersen, a trained linguist, constructed this language in the late 1920s as a way to improve on Esperanto's "unnecessary or arbitrary" aspects.  Novial is also based on Germanic and Romance languages which makes it easier than Esperanto or Ido for English speakers unless they already know a Slavic language. 

It may be more difficult to find instructional materials for Novial than the other constructed languages on this list, but here are two links:  

Novial-Wikibooks

The Novial '98 Project 
Lingwa De Planeta
A modern, highly accessible constructed language that is based on several languages worldwide (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Persian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish) instead of possessing a solely Eurocentric vocabulary.  

Since there will be fewer cognates with English, Lingwa de Planeta and Lojban might be more difficult to acquire for English speakers than languages like Lingua Franca Nova, Novial or Ido. However, Lingwa de Planeta, even more than Lojban, could likely become more useful as a worldwide communication tool. 

lingwadeplaneta.info


Esperanto
The most popular constructed language and the first that has native speakers, as some Esperantists have raised their children to speak Esperanto as their first language.  Esperanto has generated a large number of reforms to help simplify the language further.  One debate is that Esperanto is "too regular" and therefore is not natural. (An example is that all nouns end in "o".)  I'm not sure how important that is, but opponents of Lobjan, for example, apparently feel a language that "feels unnatural" may complicate retention and communication for speakers who aren't fluent. 

Detractors of Esperanto and its relatives have pointed out "zonal" auxiliary languages like Interlingua, Lingua Franca Nova, or Slovio are intelligible to millions of speakers of other natural languages.  Meanwhile, Esperanto is only intelligible to Esperantists.  

Esperanto was constructed in the late 1800s by a Russian physician, L.L. Zamenhof.  Though the practice of constructing languages goes at least as far back as 1150, Esperanto is one of the oldest auxiliary languages still taught. Of all the International Auxiliary Languages, Esperanto has the most tutorials available. 

"Esperanto" translates to "One who hopes."

World Esperanto Association
Toki Pona
This is cheating a little as Toki Pona isn't meant to be a full auxiliary language, but a minimalist language to help create harmony among people who wouldn't otherwise be able to understand each other at all.  Toki Pona was developed by linguist Sonja Lang and is based on Taoist philosophy.  

Here is a link:

http://tokipona.org

Ido
A streamlined and simplified reformation of Esperanto (one of the earliest man-made languages still in use today) developed and introduced around 1907. Esperanto, Ido, and other conlangs developed from Esperanto use a mixture of Slavic, Germanic, and Romance vocabulary. 

Here is a link to a course for English speakers called Ido For All.

French Language
French is harder to spell for English speakers as it is not phonetic   It also has more diacritical marks than Spanish.  English speakers who have become fluent in both languages often say the difficulty equalizes when reaching advanced levels. Spanish becomes more complex as it uses more tenses than French. Moreover, the amount of French influence on English means there are more cognates.

<![CDATA[9 Tame Outfits That Got Kids in Trouble at School]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/outfits-that-got-kids-in-trouble-at-school/lauren-slocum

As sad as it is, gone are the days when Kelly Kapowski could show up to homeroom wearing a bandeau top and high waisted jean shorts. Now, the debate for school uniforms revolves around gang affiliation and sexual exploitation (basically, you’re either accused of being a banger or a slut). Because spaghetti straps and multi-colored beads have become such a scandalous, sensitive topic, we decided to investigate the validity of school uniform policies and take a look at some of the most outrageous dress code violations we could find.

Dress code policy has been a huge debate in school systems for decades, and when it comes down to it, both sides of the coin are equally as valid as they are incredulous.
Girls are targeted for showing their shoulders and wearing skirts that hover just above their knees, while males are hounded for their hairstyles or repping their favorite sports teams.

 

All fashion statements aside, we know that schools are responsible for keeping a safe, peaceful environment for students. But as American Citizens under the First Amendment, students have the inherent right to express themselves freely… and herein lies the issue. By requiring school uniforms or creating a strict dress code, schools are not only taking away freedom of speech and expression, they’re arguably stifling creativity and stunting self-awareness by marginalizing the youths of today.
 

There are tons of arguments that can be made in support of strict dress codes and against them, and we’re open to all opinions! But here, we’ve created a list of the most ridiculous dress code violators we could find. Vote up the students you think were the most wrongly accused!

Student Forced to Call Her Parents for a Change of Clothing
This 14 year old was sent to the office because her skirt was half an inch too short. Her father captured this lovely moment (where she’s seen waiting in the school office for a change of clothing), shared it with the world, and since, she’s gotten some validation about her outfit’s absolute appropriateness.

Student Sent Home for Wearing Spandex and a Long-Sleeved Baseball Tee
Macy Edgerly was sent home for wearing spandex pants and a long baseball tee that landed a few inches above her knees. When she arrived home, her sister posted a picture of the forbidden outfit to Facebook, where it was shared nearly 100K times! The alleged crime was most likely the spandex that Macy donned, but what about baseball players wearing spandex to their games? Or football players? Or wrestling unitards, for goodness sake?

Student's Skirt Length Earned Her a Free Ticket to the "Shame Suit"
During her first week at a new high school school, Miranda Larkin was sited for a dress code violation and forced to wear a “shame suit” of over-sized red sweat pants and a bright yellow shirt that read, “Dress Code Violation” across the front (anyone else notice that the font on the yellow shirt resembles the font commonly used on prison jumpsuits?). The dress code at Miranda’s new school required skirts be no more than three inches above the knee, and Miranda’s skirt hovered almost four inches above her knee instead.

Student Spent Prom in a Coat Because of Her "Inappropriate" Dress
Gabi Finlayson spent her prom night wearing a winter coat after being asked to “cover up” by one of the chaperones. Her dress met the dress code criteria of having two inch straps and covering the skin on her shoulders, but because the fabric covering the shoulders was sheer lace, it was deemed unacceptable.

Male Student Sent Home for Wearing a Skirt
Warren Evans, a high school student in Maryland, was suspended from school for wearing the outfit pictured above. Fellow students from his high school claimed that females often wear skirts of the same length and do not get suspended. Evans argues that he was targeted not for the length of his skirt, but because he was a boy dressing up in female clothing. The school gave no comment on the matter, claiming that dress code rules apply to all students and that there was no gender discrimination involved in their decision.

Student Suspended for Wearing a Purple Rosary
A 13 year old from Schenectady, NY was “repeatedly suspended” for wearing a purple rosary to school. Raymond Hosier says the rosary had belonged to his late brother, who died holding the rosary in a biking accident. Hosier and his mother filed suit against Oneida Middle School for taking away his right to freedom of speech and religious freedom. The school dress code does state that beads cannot be worn outside of students’ shirts (due to possible gang affiliation), but Hosier argues his beads are religious, in memory of a family member, and that purple is not a gang color.

Suspended for Long-Sleeved, Floor-Length Prom Dress

Three days after prom, Alexis Muller-Wigfall was suspended for wearing a dress that violated prom dress code (stating that all body parts, “breasts, upper thighs, crotch, buttocks, etc.” must be covered). Muller-Wigfall wore a dress handmade by her mother. The dress was a satin red, full-length gown with long sleeves. While the chest-cut does bear some cleavage, Muller-Wigfall’s mother argues that her daughter was targeted because of her size, not because of the dress itself. Muller-Wigfall’s suspension was revoked, but the issue still raises a question about size discrimination.

Had a more petite girl with smaller breasts (and less cleavage) been wearing the dress, would she have been targeted the same way?

Student Suspended for Growing His Hair out for Locks of Love
After finding out a family friend had been diagnosed with cancer, J.T. Gaskins, a high school student from Michigan, attempted to grow his hair out to the 10-inch length necessary for donating to Locks of Love. J.T. himself is a cancer survivor, who, at eight weeks old, was diagnosed with leukemia and battled the cancer for four years. J.T. is currently cancer free, but his gesture was in support of all those currently battling the disease and also in celebration of his own life.

He was suspended from school for growing his hair past his shoulders, an stated dress code violation, and was offered a compromise of “using gel” to slick his hair back out of his face, but J.T. didn’t take that deal and was therefore suspended.

Liberty Spikes Deemed a Health Safety Hazard
He’d been rocking the do sporadically for some time, but one chosen day, when DeLand High School student Asher Stonesifer showed up to school with 16 inch liberty spikes, principal Mitch Moyer promptly sent him home. Moyer considered the spikes a “distraction and a health safety hazard” and thought they should be reserved for “Spirit Week” - the week when kids are granted the right to truly express themselves. Hair styles aren’t covered in the school’s dress code policy, but the dress code is altered at the principal’s discretion. Asher continues to “fight for the right to spike” and is also reported to be striving towards a world record for the longest liberty spike.
