At This Thanksgiving Celebration, It's The Turkeys Who Do The Eating
Huffington Post - over 1 year
At this Thanksgiving feast, big, beautiful turkeys are placed upon a long, well-dressed table -- and then they gobble down fruit, tofu, bread crumbs, kale and cooked rice, before hundreds of admirers. "Instead of being eaten, the turkeys are the guests of honor!" Terry Cummings, co-founder of the Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary in Western Maryland, told The Huffington Post. The sanctuary will celebrate its 18th annual Thanksgiving WITH the Turkeys on Saturday. Humans eat well here, too -- a vegan potluck spread -- once the turkeys have finished up their feast. Then it's time to pay visits to the sanctuary's 200-some farm animals, many rescued out of abuse and neglect, who will live out their lives on this 400-acre paradise. There's cows, goats, sheep, chickens and pigs, who can get cozy while while enjoying a belly rub. (This is our kind of pig in a blanket.) There are eight birds who will dine on Saturday. Three -- Willow, Tallulah and Madison -- came from an organic t ...

If You Were A Farm Animal, Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary Would Be Paradise
Huffington Post - over 3 years
This isn't what people usually mean when they say they've got a chicken heating up in the kitchen. Harrison the chicken sits on a padded cushion on top of a heater, by the kitchen window, so that he can keep an eye on his companion, Clarice, and his enemy, a rooster named Alvin. Though he has long white feathers, Harrison is 6 years old and "he gets cold," his owner, Terry Cummings, explained. Cummings and her husband, Dave Hoerauf, run one of the country's only farm-animal rescues, Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary, on 400 acres in Western Maryland. The farm is only about an hour from the nation's capital, but with the trees and hills and chickens -- not to mention the lack of folks in khakis talking about the debt ceiling -- it seems much farther. And speaking of chickens: In addition to Harrison and Clarice, plus Harrison's clucking nemesis, Alvin, Cummings and Hoerauf have some 60 other chickens of a variety of provenances. They fell off trucks, or came from animal shelters a ...

Lighter Classroom Atmosphere, Tighter Classroom Management
Education Week - almost 4 years
Our classrooms must not only be places where kids learn, but also places where kids laugh. Use your voice every time you need students' attention, and before long you won't have a voice. This is one reason teachers need non-verbal means of communicating with students. (Another reason is to avoid interrupting class.) The "teacher look," hand signals, and proximity are among the effective ways to redirect one or a few students without saying a word. But getting the entire class' attention often requires a more noticeable approach, especially when students are working in groups. One option is to raise your hand as a cue for students to quiet down and raise their hands until the whole class catches on. The problem with this approach is that it can take a while for students to notice you've got your hand up. Another option is to flip the light switch a couple of times, which can be effective unless your classroom gets so much natural light that students won't notice ...

Service Businesses, Angled Parking May Be in Works for Downtown Glenview
Glenview Patch - almost 5 years
After a meeting of the minds Wednesday night at Village Hall, yoga devotees in downtown Glenview could soon conserve energy for their hot workouts--by saving themselves a trip up a flight of stairs. The likes of tutors, day-care operators and photographers will also be able to greet customers coming right in the front door, off both Glenview and Waukegan Roads, if the governmental processes churn to their logical conclusion. And if the debate breaks just right, doctors, insurance and travel agents and financial advisors can serve the public with not a stair between them and the street. Stay up-to-date on the latest Glenview news: Like us on Facebook! That was the result of a consultant’s report that drew broad support from the Village Board to seriously consider relaxing the restrictive zoning ordinance that limits businesses to retailers over blocks of downtown’s two major crossroads. Revised zoning would permit a number of kinds of service businesses, but it’s unclear ...
