Elsewhere Online: AT&T's New TOS: Caps, Fewer Legal Rights, Forced U-Verse Upgrade - And a Provision Forcing You to be Polite About it All | DSLReports.com, ISP Information

If you have ever thought about switching away from AT&T broadband Internet services, now may be the time to put your plans in action. Harkening back to the old monopolistic days of Ma Bell, AT&T's new terms of service seem to be saying "Like it or lump it"...and oh, and by the way, if you complain about it too loudly, we'll cut you off anyway.

One of my Facebook friends recommended it and this video is EXACTLY the type of equations that my son is studying right now. I plan on introducing him to several of these videos. They are very clear and I think they really help to develop a deeper understanding of the material. My son is about to turn 13 and his current math lessons include the beginnings of algebra. To say the least, my knowledge of algebra is almost non-existent. I haven't even thought about it much since I left high school, where I barely made it through the required classes.
