Strange Laws in the U.S. South Carolina: Don’t leave trash in your car. In the town of Hilton Head, it’s illegal for anyone to accumulate any garbage, rubbish, or trash in any building, vehicle, and surrounding areas in the town in such a way that it may attract rats or other vermin.

  • An interesting article: “Opponents of rote memorization argue that students don’t retain much of what they learn and that real-world learning should be more about problem-solving than about memorizing. Unfortunately, this way of thinking puts the educational cart before the horse. Memorization, far from being pointless busy work, is the foundation for later learning and critical thinking. Memorizing poems, multiplication tables, lists of presidents, state capitals, definitions, or anything else exercises the brain and makes children better able to focus and endure “boring” tasks. Memorization frees up space in the brain’s working memory and increases neuroplasticity in the brain. By reducing the amount of memorization required of children, we have left them ill-equipped to take on the rigors of critical thinking, and we’ve left them with a diminished capacity to retain information necessary to problem solve.”
