Fairbanks borough assembly member who does not like Ms. Magazine oh no he does not, and he will make sure it doesn’t appear in his local grocers.

- Pre-schoolers have a natural knack for algebra:

"These very young children, some of whom are just learning to count, and few of whom have even gone to school yet, are doing basic algebra and with little effort," Kibbe said. "They do it by using what we call their 'Approximate Number System:' their gut-level, inborn sense of quantity and number."
