How to Livestream From the YouTube Android App

In a blog post that I published a couple of weeks ago I mentioned using the YouTube Android app to broadcast review sessions for your students. In the time since I published that blog post I have have had a handful of people ask me for more information about livestreaming on YouTube. The best way to explain it is to show how it is done. That's exactly what I do in the video that is embedded below.

A New List to Expose Feed Scraping, Plagiarism, and Laziness

For years I have been trying to educate people about copyright. In fact, just six weeks ago I hosted a free webinar about the topic. I've written dozens of blog posts about the topic. I've sent polite emails and some not-so-polite emails to people who have stolen blog posts from me. Starting today, I am done being polite about it. From here on, if you steal my blog posts, you're going to be called out here.

I pour hours and hours into this blog. I have helped many people get new "tech coach" and similar positions through the use of my work. I have even helped people launch entirely new businesses through the use of my work. I want to help people, that's why I started this blog. However, I have never given permission to anyone to re-use my work as their own. When you steal my blog posts, you steal my potential to earn an income, to keep this blog going, and to help others.

Here are the latest people/ organizations to steal posts from me:
1. Janet Campbell -

2. The Education Support Forum (TEDSF) -

3. Loudon County Tennessee Public Schools -

4. Flip HTML-

5. HowlDB -

How to Compare Information on Wolfram Alpha

As I mentioned in a blog post published over the weekend, Wolfram Alpha is useful for more than just solving math and science problems. In fact, it can be a great resource for students who need to quickly find and compare background information on two or more people, places, or things. In the following video I demonstrate how easy it is to use Wolfram Alpha to compare information about two or more people or places.
