The first time I ever drove a hybrid car I sat behind the wheel trying to start the engine.  I pressed almost every button I could find thinking something was wrong.  Finally, I put my foot on the pedal and the car moved. What a...

One of the problems with teaching my Human Development classes is I start seeing things in people around me.  For example, one of my lectures is on Freud's stages of development.  He maintained if one does not satisfy each stage as we grow, we develop...
