The true educator is member of a sacred profession. Learning is a
journey which never ends. Every day true teachers make positive
differences in the lives of other learners through their words and
actions. This blog exists to document my own journey of personal growth,
as well as facilitate collaborative thinking with others. I believe each
moment of every day is a gift, and it behooves us to be intentional

network which connects us. Let's continue to make the world a better

TopTenREVIEWS Expert Reviews

TopTenREVIEWS originated in January 2003 from a simple question: Where do you turn when purchasing something you know very little to nothing about? 

The answer for some people is to research it on their own, for others it’s to ask someone they trust. But, the reality for most people is that they have little time for in-depth research and often their expert friend doesn’t know everything.

PERRspectives: Bringing Light to Darkness

Created by Jon Perr, Perrspectives has a simple though immodest mission: to help renew the American social contract and restore national unity.

Facing turbulent economic change and an ascendant conservative ideology that undermines public institutions and a sense of shared national purpose, Americans' commitment to their schools, communities, government, country and each other is weakening under this dual, withering assault. Abroad, our rebel yell, post-9/11 foreign policy is leading to an America that is feared and resented, not admired and respected. Ever more divided at home and isolated in the world, Americans see a United States that is increasingly unrecognizable. will contribute to the public debate with analysis, commentary and satire across the gamut of issues of the day. Politics, culture, sports and religion are in play, with national defense, economic growth, and social issues the main battleground. Occasionally, some of the writing will be shockingly profound. Other content may be utter rubbish, and some no doubt sophomoric. (We are not above scatology and body parts references in the service of a higher good.) While our viewpoint is generally progressive, the zealots of the right and the sacred cows of the left are all fair game here.

Is This Your Card?


Anything & Everything

When expectation collides with reality


SpotCrime - Know Your Neighborhood

The most comprehensive online source of crime information.
Local maps, crime reports & classifications, real-time interactive maps.


Thrillist : A daily email shot of food, drinks, services, gadgets, gear, sports and travel.

We're a quick, free, daily email

Each weekday, we'll shoot you an article delivering the best of what your city's hiding. It might be a restaurant that serves poisonous (yet edible) fish, a rock bar that lists a "Double Shot of Jack" on its cocktail menu, or even a pocketknife that doubles as a money-clip -- an ideal accessory to carry into a bar that lists a "Double Shot of Jack" on its cocktail menu.

We only cover what we like

We don't write reviews. That would require us to tell you about things that suck, which, while potentially funny, would be a huge waste of your time. Instead, we sift through the crap to find the best in food, drinks, events, gear, services and travel.

We have six editions with more on the way.

NEW YORK offers vital, city-specific info about NYC. LA, SF and CHICAGO do the same for... LA, SF and Chicago. Soon we'll be launching in BOSTON, followed by other cities, whether they like it or not. The one-per-week LAS VEGAS edition provides guys everywhere timely, disturbing info on the Vegas Valley. The NATION edition covers all that's new, unknown, or inexcusably unappreciated throughout the country and the world.
