OK, Google, Where Did I Put My Thinking Cap?

first_imgNPR:Take a look at this question: How do modern novels represent the characteristics of humanity?If you were tasked with answering it, what would your first step be? Would you scribble down your thoughts — or would you Google it?Terry Heick, a former English teacher in Kentucky, had a surprising revelation when his eighth- and ninth-grade students quickly turned to Google.“What they would do is they would start Googling the question, ‘How does a novel represent humanity?’ ” Heick says. “That was a real eye-opener to me.”For those of us who grew up with search engines, especially Google, at our fingertips — looking at all of you millennials and post-millennials — this might seem intuitive. We grew up having our questions instantly answered as long as we had access to the Internet.Read the whole story: NPR More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott says he felt ‘a little rusty’ in first game back from holdout

first_imgDallas quarterback Dak Prescott completed 25 of his 32 passes for 405 yards with four touchdowns in the win. Make that 4 TD passes for @Dak! #NYGvsDAL pic.twitter.com/XpMFUqqYEd— FOX Sports: NFL (@NFLonFOX) September 8, 2019The Cowboys are set to face the Redskins on the road in Week 2. “Obviously, I was a little rusty,” Elliott said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I didn’t play the best game. I have a lot I can improve on. But that’s going to take time, and it’s about getting more reps and being out there longer.” Related News Titans’ Delanie Walker: Browns are ‘who we thought they were’ Elliott split carries with Tony Pollard ⁠— they each received 13 ⁠— and finished with 53 yards on the ground in Dallas’ 35-17 victory.

I thought we did a pretty good job of that. He ended up being in a couple of longer drives in the first half, so I think he got up over 35 snaps in the game. But it seemed like he handled it well.”It looked like he ran the way Zeke runs. I know over time, when he practices a little bit more and gets a little more game experience, he’ll get more comfortable. But he’s a really good football player, and it’s good to have him back.” Ezekiel Elliott doesn’t think he had his best performance Sunday. The 24-year-old star was back in the Cowboys’ backfield in their Week 1 win over the Giants after holding out for the entire preseason. Elliott, who signed a six-year, $90 million extension last week, was asked to evaluate his play against New York during a postgame press conference.  Baker Mayfield confident Browns ‘are going to bounce back’ after loss to Titans Dolphins deny report players have requested trades after blowout Week 1 loss to Ravenslast_img read more
