Q: What's the biggest challenge?Time. As many hours as you invest in your lesson/unit planning to make sure students have a tremendous experience while in your classroom, time always seems to run faster than you want it to.

Less than four years in, Jio now has over 350 million customers. The blockbuster debut triggered a price war in India's telecom sector and brought average data prices down from $3 per gigabyte per month in 2016 to around 16 cents per gigabyte in 2018, according to the latest government data. … [Read more...] about Big Tech’s honeymoon with the world’s second-largest internet market is ending

Uh-oh, not that.” And of course he’s gone and I’m still there. But I mean, it’s just you don’t need it anymore. And I think journalists had been trading access for shitty coverage for so long, it should end.Jorge Ramos: And I have a rule, usually with people with a lot of power. I have two things in mind.
