The State Board of Education has adopted new social studies and history guidelines for Texas primary school classrooms.
The board voted Friday 9-5 on the kindergarten-through-eighth grade standards.
The standards have been given a more conservative bent by the board. They dictate how political events and figures will be taught to some 4.8 million school children in Texas and beyond for the next decade.
Criticisms over last minute amendments and nitpicking word changes throughout the curriculum reached an end late afternoon Friday.
After more than an hour debating whether to include Thomas Jefferson and James Madison in high school world history standards regarding influential philosophers, board members kept Jefferson but not Madison. Madison was the fourth president of the United States.
The debate surrounding religious freedom surfaced yet again, as some Democrats put forth a failed attempt to add the wording "barring the government from favoring one religion over another" in reference to separation of church and state.
The outnumbered Democratic contingent also called for a delay to let the appointed experts, not the board, make the final decision on a document they say is a completely new piece of work.
One by one the seven social conservatives and one other shot down any vote to delay. Shortly thereafter, an exhausted and divided board made their own history by voting to approve what will be in Texas kids' history books for the next ten years.
Texas board adopts new primary school curriculum
New economics standards were also approved Friday, but with a unanimous vote.
Thursday night, the board left after getting through high school U.S. history, where President Barack Obama was approved to be included in the curriculum. Board member David Bradley chimed in at one point that Obama's middle name, Hussein, should also be added.
After other board members said he was being derogatory, the final vote was to put the president's name in as Barack H. Obama.
Those who wanted to delay say this isn't the end. They believe in taking another look into how they can revisit the debate once a new board's in place in January.
The new materials could be in classrooms starting in 2013. The state legislature has to first appropriate money for that to move forward.
Altogether, more than 400 amendments have been offered up by board members throughout this process.

The two of you are inseparable. You're every romantic comedy cliché come to life. He's the cream in your coffee. The Jim to your Pam -- not that you even remember who they are, because with all the lovemaking, you hardly have time to waste on sitcoms like "The Office."
When you're not busy in the bedroom, you spend hours just staring at each other, marveling at your good fortune. Everything reminds you of him and you can't stop talking about how fantastically happy you are.
In fact, you're so busy, you probably haven't even noticed that, except for calls from your schmoopie, your phone has stopped ringing. (Unless it's your mom calling to wonder if you're finally going to squeeze out some grandchildren for her.)
But your friends? They seem to have disappeared. In the haze of your love drunkenness, you might believe this is because they're jealous. But more likely it's because you've become one of the "smug marrieds" from Bridget Jones' Diary -- a book I loathed, but she sure got that part right. And you're not even married. Yet. The Frisky: I've become a smug married!

Kissing the Blareny Stone in Ireland could give you more than just the gift of the gab after it was named as the world's most unhygienic tourist attraction.
Researchers said the Stone, kissed by up to 400,000 people a year, rates as the most germ-filled of sites - although it admitted it had no scientific evidence to back its case.
Local legend has it that visitors who bend over backwards to kiss the stone built into Blarney Castle, near Cork, are rewarded with the 'gift of the gab'.
But internet travel website TripAdvisor.com believes those who kiss the stone are likely to end up with something else other than fluent speech as it is so germ ridden.
Rounding out the top 5 most unhygenic tourist attractions are --
2. A wall outside a theatre in Seattle, Washington - since 1990, tens of thousands of people have stuck their unwanted chewing gum to the wall turning it into a tourist attraction. The act began with people waiting in line to visit the theatre. The wall has been scrapped clean twice since 1990 but is still covered with gum.
3. Oscar Wilde's tomb in Paris is covered with lipstick prints.
4. St Marks Square in Venice, Italy - due to the thousands of hungry pigeons who descend on the place leaving behind their waste.
5. The handprints and footprints of stars outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood are covered with grim from the hands of countless visitors who see if their hands and feet match those of the stars.Kissing the Blareny Stone in Ireland could give you more than just the gift of the gab... more

And they didn't even have to show you the slaughter houses...
by the way, "100% USDA Inspected Beef" does not mean anything, other than that it contains no kangaroo;
they FAIL to mention what GRADE beef it is. (you can rest assured it's not GRADE A)
also, at a time when vegetarianism should be encouraged, it's disappointing to know that Al Gore's very own Current TV is pandering to one of the biggest players in the beef industry (which accounts for 18% of all greenhouse gases)

On December 18th, 2008, a 10 year-old 5th grader named Chao Qun Zheng went to his elementary school in HeNan, China.
When his teacher, Guo, found out that young Zheng had not completed his homework, she flipped out.
“She was very angry at the time,” he said. “She ripped and twisted my cheeks with both her hands and then she lifted me off the ground.”
The teacher held the boy up until one of his cheeks actually ripped off and the boy was bleeding profusely.
Without hesitation the teacher reached down and picked up Zheng’s cheek skin, put it on his face, and instructed the boy go home immediately.
When the parents saw Zheng, they immediately took him to the hospital where it took 52 stitches to have his cheek sewn back on.
Zheng’s father has reported the case to the police and is expected to press for damages.On December 18th, 2008, a 10 year-old 5th grader named Chao Qun Zheng went to his... more

"Tomorrow there is going to be a protest at a funeral."
In that simple offensive sentence, many of you will probably know who is to blame.
In case this is new to you, at the helm of this offensive intrusion into the grieving of families and friends of the deceased, is one man, Fred Phelps. His campaign of hatred is rooted in his belief in the bible, inciting verses as justification for his cruel actions. His target tomorrow is someone who was never involved in politics. This guilty-by-association approach that the Westboro Church engages in, has set its sights on the Mother-in-law of Vice Presidential candidate Joe Biden. This woman never spoke against Fred Phelps, his church, or Christianity. She just happened to have borne a daughter who married a very successful man. She is castigated by the church as being an evil witch who should burn in hell."Tomorrow there is going to be a protest at a funeral." In that simple... more
Story Details for the post: http://current.com/items/89366344_boy_fed_zoo_reptiles_to_crocodile
A seven-year-old boy has been filmed going on the rampage at a popular zoo in Australia, killing rare reptiles and feeding live ones to a crocodile.
Footage from the security cameras at Alice Springs Reptile Centre caught the child smiling as he killed a total of 13 animals. During his 30-minute spree, he was seen hurling the animals over the security fence into the crocodile enclosure.
Zoo officials described the boy's actions as "unbelievable". They are considering suing the parents as the boy is too young to be prosecuted.
'Difficult to replace'
The attack happened on Wednesday morning after the boy entered the zoo by jumping over the security fence and evading sensor alarms.
Over the next half hour, he bludgeoned some of the animals to death with stones and hurled others over the two fences surrounding the crocodile enclosure. At one point, he tried scaling the outer enclosure himself to get to "Terry", the 11ft (3.3m) saltwater crocodile.
A turtle, four Western blue-tongued lizards, two bearded dragons, two thorny devil lizards and the zoo's 20-year-old goanna were among those killed. Zoo director Rex Neindorf said many of the animals were rare or mature and would be difficult to replace.
"The fact a seven-year-old can wreak so much havoc in such a short time, it's unbelievable," he told Reuters news agency. Mr Neindorf said the boy had "clammed up" when questioned by police.
As children under the age of 10 cannot be held accountable for their actions in the Northern Territory, the zoo would be seeking to take action against the parents. "We'll be looking at suing the parents, who were supposedly in control of him at the time," he said.

When council worker Ray Michael went to the canteen and tucked into his mozzarella and tomato tart, he was in for a rather unpleasant surprise: at the heart of the dish, he discovered an inch-long moth!
The 28-year-old, who is temping in the children and families department, said: "I couldn't believe it, my eye caught the end of the fork and I saw what looked like a flea or a moth which had clearly come from the meal. I was a fair bit through it when I saw it. I put it down straight away and complained to the canteen staff, who were horrified and very apologetic."
The food came pre-packed from Brake Brothers Food, based in Kent, and it is likely the insect entered the meal long before it arrived at council headquarters.
"I'm just relieved I didn't eat it, and it'll make me think twice before eating that kind of thing again. It may have just been a one-off, but it was pretty frightening," added the graduate photographer from Blackhall.
The insect is currently being held by the council as it waits to send it off in a special package to the suppliers.
It is not the first incident in the Capital of people finding foreign bodies in their food. Kate Dunlop, 27, a personal assistant at Lloyds TSB, had to spit out a frog found in a Scotmid salad last year.
