A Very Obscure Math Related Question on Facebook

Below are replies and responses which causes a debate. A very interesting debate I might add since many of these people use certain things like "I'm a math teacher" or "I teach math" or something similar as a justification of why they are right and others are wrong. In reality, if you were a true instructor, you would have done what a lot of these other commenters did and write both equations out using PEMDAS and without PEMDAS. This is something that should actually be taught, the conversation and discussion is more learning than a teacher telling their students their version of the right answer. This is how we got "alternative facts" today with Trump.

Mod Pizza & Errands

I am in love with Mod Pizza. I just dined at the Smokey Hill & E470, near Southlands, location. You can put whatever topings you want, make it healthy (or unhealthy), without paying extra. There is a Smash Burger nearby as well. Southlands and its surrounding area is getting better and better.

Abortion, Again. A Timeless Issue.

I concurred to Wyles Malibiran's comment on Antonio Brubo's comment:

"Wyles Malibiran Amen kind person. The not-born yet, out of the womb, formation-of-cells cannot be considered reality, but only rhetorically and at best in a metaphoric sense, until sexual intercourse or the introduction of the sperm and the egg via IVF (or other pathways) has occurred. We cannot control how people think, learn, understand things, but society can make it possible to at least provide some degree of due diligence to the public."

Have a retort, comment, issue, conflict, and/or positive thought to share? Respond to this post or find me on Facebook, LinkedInTwitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and Youtube.

UCHealth's My Take: Super Power

I grew up in Japan and was immersed in their culture, people, and traditions. I resonated with their anime, manga, and anything related to art. I learned emotions through their language and it helped me find my identity, agency, and personality. I am a first-generation Filipino-American born into a military family of five, I'm the fifth, at a hospital in California. I spent my adolescent and teenage years on American military bases in Japan such as in Misawa and housing posts near Yokota and Yokouska., but now currently live my adult years in Colorado.

With that said, my powers would probably be something related to the Nickelodeon show, "Avatar: The Last Airbender" which is an animated television program about a universe where there are those that can bend the elements such as water, earth, air, and fire. Not all of the people, in their respective nations, can bend the elements, but that usually led them to practice martial arts and techniques that disabled people who had the ability.

With that said, I would have an ability of the Avatar which can control all the elements, which goes one step deeper in the type of super power I would want.

The show progresses with themes of racism, bigotry, power, and domination (among many other relevant issues that parallel reality's history). Not unlike modern society, characters mingle with other races from different nations and the world, as a family in general, try to navigate life through diplomacy, force, spirituality, religion, and morality.

One of the ability's the Avatar is able to consult with past ancestors, including previous Avatars that preceded the current one. Being able to get wisdom from the past is similar to thinking about mentors, heroes, and role models at your fingertips.

The Avatar's ability that I would ideally want is to waterbend because there is potential to bloodbend. Bloodbending is portrayed as a dark magic type of skill, but can also be used to heal. It is similar to religion and how extremists can use ideology that initially had positive intent for the wrong reasons.
