The Covid-19 pandemic changes health outcomes in both negative and positive ways. Working from home may reduce Mary’s risk of death from a car accident, and lower her likelihood of catching Covid-19 or a cold. But while he may never contract Covid 19, how will her health be affected if she can’t see her doctor, afford and obtain her medicine, or talk with a mental health professional about her depression? While we are drawn to focus on the death count and positive tests for Covid-19, we also need to consider the impacts of this crisis on the wider population.

Covid-19 has laid bare the inadequacies and inequalities in our social, economic and health systems. If we can shift our
health resources and adjust our emergency responses and our health and social system to care for all, then the lessons of this terrible and dangerous pandemic may save many lives.

Funny, how you’ve been around for 4.543 billion years and we’ve just now started celebrating your birth five decades ago. And mostly we’ve started counting because we’ve noticed that we’ve been rough on you.

So here is a toast to you and all that you give us, like life, breath, beauty and the caress of wind and waves. Maybe this next year. we will try harder to be worthy of you and worthy of ourselves. Love to you, Mother Earth.

As the Covid-19 pandemic spreads across the globe, the virus seems to have been as lethal to our health care, economic, and political systems as it has been to individuals. How will we adapt our lives and our systems as we move through this pandemic?

Can Math=Fun?

Ever fill a high school cafeteria on a beautiful Saturday morning with 5th graders looking forward to 4 hours of math?  The Ingenuity Project in Baltimore, Maryland did.

The genius was to use Mathopoly  and math competitions to challenge the students to solve problems while they were having fun.

In the high school gym a wrestling takedown tournament was challenging students to throw their opponents to the mat.  Here in the cafeteria, students were wrestling with their understanding of math operations and concepts with the sharp concentration and competitive eagerness of athletes.  

Enjoy watching their concentration and jubilation.
