Here we are, deep in the Here we are, deep in the dog days of another summer. School is out, vacation days are being cashed in, and picnic baskets are being packed. Barbecues are firing, pools are splashing, and ice cream trucks are rolling. Meanwhile, thousands, yea millions, are taking to the great American highway.

The jobs may not be returning very fast, but a new report Monday shows the Arizonans who are employed are loosening up on their wallets.
I’ve said it before, there’s nothing cooler than apes in comics. Comic book publishers know it, readers know it, and even Hollywood has jumped on the ape bandwagon again (see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.) Since Edgar Rice Burroughs first planted poor baby Greystoke in the middle of the Mangani (great apes) tribe off the coast of Africa, spectacular simians have been a huge part of our pop culture heritage; and at the recent Phoenix Comicon I happened to come across one of the most awesome ape adventures of all.
I once approached my life and work as if I was building a house. Drive a nail here. Lay a block there. Smear a bit of paint in the corner. Cut out a window now and again. Figuratively, this is how I treated my life, and it is a solid, powerful image. It is also an image with plenty of biblical roots.
Colliers International recently completed an $885,000 land sale in Chandler.
The concrete structure called Elevation Chandler was intended to be a luxury hotel and would have provided the Chandler Fashion Center located next door a steady stream of consumers. It now sits vacant and exposed on an empty dirt plot and serves as a stark juxtaposition to the prosperous shopping center.
Teaching Chinese can be forced or presented in an unnatural way. We found a method of teaching behaviors, building upon a child’s natural curiosity, using hands on materials, teaching through multiple senses, and other fantastic philosophies in a pedagogy called Montessori. However, we couldn’t find an effective educational program in Arizona that teaches Mandarin Chinese. So Ling obtained a job at an International Montessori School in Hong Kong and we packed our bags and moved to Hong Kong.
Running through my mind as I type is next week's trailer for Disney's “Million Dollar Arm.” I use next week's trailer to account for the probable praise from critics – it's easy to visualize words like “triumphant” or “uplifting” materializing on screen alongside a four-star review from Rolling Stone's Peter Travers.
Every year in the spring, Tempe arts school New School for the Arts & Academics (NSAA) throws a big event to raise money for the school. The students showcase their talents through various types of performances such as dance, drama, and music and their visual art skills by selling various items they’ve made such as pottery, buttons, bobble-heads, etc. In addition to this marvelous display of talents, the students and faculty run activities like this year’s dunk tank, carnival games, and a rather impressive raffle. These kids have some serious talent!
To get the most out of any organic fertilizer, keep in mind how plants feed and how these fertilizers act in the soil.
LOS ANGELES — The pre-pre-season opening kickoff of the 2014 National Football League schedule is returned for a score in "Draft Day," an entirely conventional serio-comic sports world melodrama that pushes its buttons with undeniable professional finesse. In his most effective full star turn in perhaps a decade, Kevin Costner dominates as the greenhorn general manager of the beleaguered Cleveland Browns who could emerge from the heavy shadow of his late revered father with the successful handling of the annual draft of college players.

When a 2011 storm destroyed their black shingle roof, Carol and Ray Knoff of Vinton, Iowa, opted to replace it with a roof in vintage Victorian colors: a clay-like red and gray.
Our old friend and “wingman”, Goose, is most likely rolling in his grave over Need for Speed, a very bad new movie based the popular racing video game series that swiped its title from the famous line in the film Top Gun. But that footnote in pop culture’s “circle of life” is probably the most amusing aspect of this fleety fiasco.
WASHINGTON — The perfect score will again be 1,600. What's more, the essay will be optional, students will no longer be penalized for wrong answers and the vocabulary is shifting to do away with some high-sounding words such as "prevaricator" and "sagacious."
There is a new choice in public charter schools that will be debuting two brand new campuses late summer 2014, just in time for the next school year.

NEW YORK — Six years ago, Matthew McConaughey was starring in a movie called "Surfer, Dude," a film about as good as its title implies. He played a shirtless surfer plunged into an existential crises when his good luck with waves runs out.
What a great responsibility we have as parents to find a school where our children can enjoy being every day in addition to being safe and receiving the best possible education! The first thing to remember when we are touring/looking for a school is that we follow our instincts as parents having confidence that we can and will make the best decision for our children monitoring and adjusting as necessary each year and day as our lives and needs change. It is very important to brainstorm as a family what is important to you in a school before venturing out which will help you make the best decision the first time instead of school hopping which although is adventurous and brave and many times the right thing to do to find the right school for your child it is a consistent disruption to learning and most importantly relationship building and modeling the endurance needed to win life’s race. Knowing each child has a unique personality and brain structure it is critical to know and communicate your child’s needs openly and honestly so you can give your school of choice the opportunity to reciprocally respond with honesty in regards to being able to meet the needs of your family and each of your children with their varying needs and differences. Consider collaborating with your child and making a list of 5 of the things that are most important to you both in a school. This can serve as a tool for a team feel when or if the going gets tough or in a positive note you are basking in successes.
