    The economic stimulus big give

    The federal government is giving away money! What should we do with it? President Bush and other leaders want us to spend the windfall on domestic goods and services. Call it an economic stimulus package or a tax rebate--it is a tried and true method of jumpstarting the economy. Supporters hope this short-term boost will have long-term benefits. A few others call saving the money, or at least paying down debts, more responsible. Tim Neufeld, biblical and religious studies professor at Fresno Pacific University, offers a third suggestion so far unheard in the public discussion. Find out what this is in this week's Scholars Speak.

    Have you done a good math problem lately?

    Innumeracy's a big word for a malady many of us picked up in elementary school: the sweating palms, the shaking knees, the lightheadedness that occurs when a teacher says, "Please open your math books." Sadly, these symptoms may remain throughout life, manifesting itself during budget meetings at work and tax time at home. Strangely, carriers of innumeracy often wear their illness as a badge of honor. Unfortunately, it can also be contagious, spreading down the generations. Dave Youngs, mathematics education professor at Fresno Pacific University, has a warning and a solution in this week's Scholars Speak.

    Relief sales combine doing good with having fun

    Helping others does not have to be a sacrifice, and Mennonite relief sales are living proof: everything from quilts and furniture to art and old books get sold, food from a variety of traditions gets eaten and everyone has fun, while raising millions for those facing poverty and disasters--natural and manmade. One such sale happens in Fresno April 4 & 5. Kevin Enns-Rempel gives a historic background to the event in this week's Scholars Speak.

    Does speeding make good reading?

    Everyone wants children to become fluent readers. But how do we measure fluency? Is reading a speed sport, like auto racing, or a plunge for depth, like cliff diving? This week in Scholars Speak, Renee Mendel Lebsock, language and literacy professor at Fresno Pacific University, says the focus on fast reading misses the mark and offers alternatives.

    Connecting the dots leads to Big Brother--Video surveillance doesn't stop the crime, so why use it?

    Video cameras are making public places more public for private citizens. Supporters say they deter crime and help police put the bad guys behind bars. Opponents call them one more step toward the United States of Big Brother. Scott Key turns his eye to the subject in this week's Scholars Speak.

    Why do we love to hate Hillary?

    Practically since her first day as first lady, Hillary Clinton has engendered emotions far beyond those of normal politicians or political wives. When she ran for Senator from New York, interest ran as high as for a national campaign. Now that she's in a national campaign, both the right and left are aflame with—dare we use the word?—hate for Hillary. Hope Nisly wonders what drives this extreme dislike, and challenges us to examine what lies beneath in this week's Scholars Speak.
