After she left the senate, Helen continued to advocate for women while broadening her activities in other areas. In 1917 she headed a committee that met with the new Democratic governor, Julius C. Gunter, to ask him to appoint a woman to the state Industrial Commission. This was the board created in the 1915 session for the purpose of investigating labor disputes before a strike could take place. Since many workers were women, having a woman among the three members of the board seemed reasonable. The committee’s efforts were unsuccessful, however.1

Another one of Helen’s interests was family planning, and she was an early ally of pioneers in that field. She served on the national council of the Voluntary Parenthood League along with Judge Ben Lindsey, and her membership is cited in Margaret Sanger’s Family Limitation.2 In an article written in November 1918, just as an armistice was declared ending the Great War, Helen commented on the reduction in the number of births in the United States. This was the consequence, she said, of women finding other outlets for their creativity. The story of civilization is “the story of subordinating natural forces to human intelligence,” she believed. Whereas men wanted more births for the machinery of war, women were asking, what has happened to “the babies we gave you?” Helen called for better “conditions of life of babies already born.”3

2. Hubs and Switches

Gary A. Donahue O'Reilly Media ePub

In the beginning of Ethernet, 10Base-5 used a very thick cable that was hard to work with (it was nicknamed thicknet). 10Base-2, which later replaced 10Base-5, used a much smaller cable, similar to that used for cable TV. Because the cable was much thinner than that used by 10Base-5, 10Base-2 was nicknamed thin-net. These cable technologies required large metal couplers called N connectors (10Base-5) and BNC connectors (10Base-2). These networks also required special terminators to be installed at the end of cable runs. When these couplers or terminators were removed, the entire network would stop working. These cables formed the physical backbones for Ethernet networks.

With the introduction of Ethernet running over unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cables terminated with RJ45 connectors, hubs became the new backbones in most installations. Many companies attached hubs to their existing thin-net networks to allow greater flexibility as well. Hubs were made to support UTP and BNC 10Base-2 installations, but UTP was so much easier to work with that it became the de facto standard.

Part I: Applying the Common Core State Standards

Robert J. Marzano Marzano Research ePub

As the authors of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English language arts and mathematics sought to define what students needed to know and be able to do in the 21st century, they found themselves confronted with two broad categories of knowledge and skills. One of these categories (which we label content standards) involves relatively concrete knowledge and skills, such as “ask and answer questions about key details in a text” (NGA & CCSSO, 2010a, p. 11) or “solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20” (NGA & CCSSO, 2010d, p. 15). The other category (which we label practice standards) involves relatively abstract skills, such as “students are engaged and open-minded—but discerning—readers and listeners” (NGA & CCSSO, 2010a, p. 7) or “students try to communicate precisely to others” (NGA & CCSSO, 2010d, p. 7). To their credit, the authors of the CCSS included both categories of knowledge and skills in their set of standards.
