Hollywood's most recent spate of pirate movies, the Pirates of the Caribbean series starring Johnny Depp, illustrates the age-old stereotype of "the pirate." Depp is the perfect swaggering pirate, his full head of dreadlocks wrapped in a cloth, waistcoat belted with heavy leather, on occasion an 18th century skirted frock coat and a tricorn hat. Pistols and swords in his belt within easy reach for a fight. Soft leather boots folded down at the top. Swashbuckling at its best. Depp embodies the definitive pirate style.
One of the best things about being an educator is the opportunity to share in the success of students' educational careers. Watching students learn to read, speak a foreign language or pass an AP exam are highlights that I've shared with numerous young people over the years, but none of them comes close to what I consider one the best highpoints I ever experienced: the excitement that I saw on the faces of the students from North Central High School years ago when I informed them about the improvements being made to their school as part of Phase 1 ...

Women have made great strides since Title IX banned sex discrimination in any educational program receiving federal funding. This piece of legislation signed by President Nixon in 1972 encouraged thousands of young women, once sidelined, to lace up their shoes, grab their gear and change history.
One of the nation's most recognized Roman Catholic Church-affiliated universities is extending employee benefits to spouses in same-sex marriages. The move comes in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court decision not to step into the gay marriage debate and appears to contradict current Catholic teaching that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."
On Monday, news broke that Catholic leaders might be warming up to homosexual church members. Rather than use the language of disorder and sin, the Synod of Bishops on the family's midterm report said that "homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community."
