Now… on to the highlights of Georgia blogging during the past two weeks:

Items of Controversy

Elisheva points us to an article in the journal Nature where Evolution Theories are Challenged by Fossils.

Problems with money at Grady Memorial Hospital…..we’ve heard this for years. Georgia Politics Unfiltered says …Even though he’s a Republican, state Senator David Shafer (R-Duluth) comes up with some good pieces of legislation every now and then. See the solution.

Aging Hipster says please, no new road from Savannah to Knoxville.

I fear the housing market will become more and more controversial in the days to come. Who’s to blame? How can this be fixed? If you are planning to sell your house in the next few months you’ll want to take look at the post from Everything Finance Blog titled, Features That Add Resale Value to a Home.

Cadillac Tight opines on the Jose Padilla Conviction.

Red Clay Commerce discusses sonic booms, Gulfstream , and their little known impact on the Georgia economy in From Booms to Rumbles.

Iraq….yep, it’s controversial. Buzz says, “Apparently my video question for the You Tube Presidential debate has upset some people.”

….and what about Hillary? SpacyG, along with Sara, may have the answer with Hillary's Media Makeover, and Sara provides the background regarding their collaboration.

Innovations With Technology

30plusteacher provides the top forms of technology that kids want in their classrooms.

My mom and dad used to invite people over to see their hundreds of slides regarding their trips to Europe. Boring! Grift Drift has been traveling above the Mason-Dixon line and he’s been posting pictures along the way. Go on over and make sure you scroll down all the way. He’s heading to Gettysburg today and I’m looking forward to seeing the pictures and reading about his impressions.

SpaceyG shares Georgia's Aviation Past which would be a terrific clip to show students at the beginning of a unit of study regarding the early 1900s.

Every time you pay a bill online, you transfer money into your online savings account or your employer direct deposits your paycheck, do you know what kind of a transaction is really taking place in the back end ?

Its called an ACH transaction. Everything Finance Blog gives us the whole explanation.

Satellite TV Guru shares How to Save Money on Your Satellite or Cable Bill.

Introspection, Diversions, and Just Some Damn Fine Readin’

Pastor Bill asks, is anger good? Does it have a place for a Christian? Yes, it does! Read more.

Grasping for the Wind provides a review of Tipperary.

So which Georgia university is rated numer 1? The Other Athens has posted the academic rankings of Georgia's Universities.

The Amo page shares A Dream Home. Jefferson, of Red Clay Commerce, likes this painting and shares that Amo is his wife.

About Atlanta discusses some happenings in ATL over the weekend.

Terrell and his new class had an unexpected teachable moment and a surprise on a watershed walk.

Over at History Is Elementary I provide links to the latest Military History Carnival and the Education Carnival… C'mon....Get out of your comfort zone and follow those links.

As an educator I know how important visuals are. Apparently Mike-EL over at Here’s Your Holiday appreciates visuals as well. When Peach Pundit started taking names for the 50 most important People in Georgia politics he got busy and put some faces together with names. Great Job!

Food, Fabulous Food

Atlanta Malcontent gives the scoop on Atlanta's bests burgers.

Go eat at Toast says Atlanta Foodies
