D.C. Lawmaker believes that cold weather is man-made

Washington, DC – The bar just keeps getting lower in public office it seems. D.C. Council member Trayon White Sr reported on Facebook at 7:21am ET Saturday.

Man, it just started snowing out of nowhere this morning, man. Y’all better pay attention to this climate control, man, this is climate manipulation…. And D.C. keep talking about, ‘Were a resilient city.’ And that’s a model based off the Rothschilds controlling the climate, to create natural disasters they can pay for it and own the cities, man. Be careful.

It should go without saying but this is completely bonkers!  However, a small constituency will believe what this young brother is saying. That absolutely scares me.

Increasingly, Americans in general, appear to be lacking the ability to determine what information is false, from what information is true and accurate. Snopes.com is attempting to educate the public but fake news is arising faster than they can address it.

Schools may need to start hiring critical thinkers for Professional Development so that our children can be inoculated against non-evidence-based dogma and beliefs. If done well, we could unleash more enlightened and patient minds that can look at information more objectively rather than responding out of blind emotion.

In a society where contradictions are now status quo, insults are talking points and bad behavior is now considered a way of sticking it to the liberals, can we at least have our science facts correct?

In many ways, I wish our politics were more like scientific processes. In science we must: be critical thinkers, be honest with the information we put forth, be aware of our biases, be careful in how we draw conclusions, present data and information as it is and not how we wish it to be. If more people used their brains to think more critically, our world be probably be in a much better place.

Online Biology Tutoring with Cambridge Institute

I have recently taken on the responsibility and pleasure of helping ESL learners that are here in America with their Biology studies. My speciality is in 9-12 Biology Education.

It’s a new program but more about the organization here:

https://www.thecambridgenetwork.com/#four

If you are a foreign student struggling between the difficulties in mastering a new language plus English academic content, The Cambridge Network may be able to help get you (your child) get back on track. Many of their students are Chinese nationals living here in America with a host family or relatives and are having problems with science vocabulary.

Evolution Education Award

I have been awarded an Evolution Education Scholarship award from The Teacher Institute For Evolutionary Science (TIES). It was created by famous evolutionary biologist Dr. Richard Dawkins. The organization has since merged with the Center for Inquiry. This award was in recognition of my efforts in educating the public about evolutionary biology. Please visit my other site in which I explore our amazing planet’s biodiversity: http://www.amazinglife.bio

New Program Coming Soon

Reginald Finley Sr and Reggie Finley Jr are in the first phases of creating a new program dedicated to biology and consumer health.

We welcome all ideas. We are very excited about this new program but we also want to make sure it’s produced well, is educational, and entertaining.

If you aren’t familiar with my old program, visit: infidelguy.com to listen to my old show that ran from 1999-2012.

Stay tuned!

Grades I currently tutor: High School Biology, 9-12. (I am very familiar with Florida Standards), and Middle School Biology. I can also tutor Biology I college/university students as well.

I specialize in tutoring public school and homeschool children, children with ADHD and other learning difficulties. I am currently the Science Department Chair for a school that specializes in educating children with learning difficulties.

TOOLS:
I will use Skype, whiteboards, PowerPoints, animations etc.. to help your young student excel in their challenging Biology class. I can also customize pre-recorded material (15 minutes) to target particular aspects of biology for your child to stream privately via youtube. Each video will be targeted specifically and only for your young student.

COSTS:
$35/hr. Free 10 minute session to see if you think I’m a good fit. I primarily tutor through Wyzant as they have excellent online tools:  https://www.wyzant.com/Tutors/ScienceWithReggie

I have helped 100’s of students from around the world and they have seen significant improvements in their science aptitude and some have even discovered a renewed interest and passion for science.

I hope to speak with you soon!

Mr. Finley
