Bio: 

I live and work in Cambridge--lucky me!  I have 20+ years experience teaching teens how to use multi-media platforms as tools for learning.  Since 2005 I've worked with teens at MIT/Terrascope Youth Radio, and at CRLS' Media Arts Studio.  My passion is advocating for more creative forms of learning, and urging educators to embrace using artistic expression as an outcome.

  A series of Homecoming events for alumni and staff of CHLS, CRLS, and Rindge Tech begin on Saturday the 18th and will run through Sunday the 27th.  Here's the schedule:

The whoopsism meter went on tilt today as we walked by the Cambridge Center for Adult Education.

 

 

Since it's a center for education, and it's a science event, we figure they know the reason for the offending "e".   

Times are changing in the checkout line.  Cash, credit, or debit?  Chip?

Credit or debit only.  Cash only (rare).

If we’re standing in line at a store and our noses aren’t buried in our mobile devices, chances are we take note of our fellow consumers as we go through the line.

Newly installed bike lanes on Brattle Street may prompt residents and visitors alike to rename it Brattle Street Parking Lot.

 

Instead of strolling down a tree-lined street with views of Radcliffe Yard and stately homes, what you first see from the west side of the street is two rows of parked cars.  As of Tuesday, July 11, the two-way bike lane stretched to Mason Street, but plans call for it to end at Eliot Street. 

 

I am so p***ed!

Like so many of you, I’m diligent about always having cloth bags in my car.  I put on a smug face when I buy something in a less-evolved city and am asked “paper or plastic?”  In such cases I bring out a nice, clean, foldable bag I keep in my purse for such occasions.  I whip it out and shake it open so my fellow shoppers can see how environmentally aware I am. 

It’s written all over my face:  “I’m from Cambridge.  We are civilized.”

My  neighborhood is changing.  I’d say it was dying but I’d run the risk of sounding like the old lady in Harvard Square who spends all her time longing for the old days.  I’ll admit to the first but I’m nowhere near the second.  What I’m longing for is balance; a place where tourists and students will feel comfortable and townies can walk a few blocks to find the everyday conveniences we deserve

 

                                                                                                       

 

This Saturday, November 5,  promises to be a special day at the MIT Museum.

Twice each year the museum celebrates women in science, technology, engineering, and math by opening its doors to girls who are interested in investigating, building and testing their own designs. 

Who isn't tired of this election season?  No matter who you're for, the rhetoric, the nastiness is enough to make a sane person scream.

CCTV has gathered a diverse group of local, respected journalists who will talk you off the ledge by putting some objective perspective on what's turning out ot be the ugliest election season in our lifetime.

Join us this Saturday, October 22, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Cambridge Public Library.  Doors open at 9:30 p.m. The link below offers more information, and a list of confirmed participants.  Admission is free.
