If you're like me, you hate online ads. If you're also like me, you really don't study enough...





Well, the new Chrome extension V Energy AdNotes aims to help with all of that by replacing any ads on your webpages with study notes you can set up yourself. It takes a second or two to take over an ad, but then you can have whatever text or image you want appear there, like notes for an upcoming test:



They describe the extension like this:

"V AdNotes will help improve your study a bit by turning forgettable ads into memorable study notes.

It puts your study notes where ads usually go, so you're studying no matter what you do on the internet…


[insert porn gif here]

Just input your colour-coded subjects and add as many study notes as you like. You can turn your subjects on and off depending on what you're studying, and preview how each study note will look in the major banner ad sizes.

Now browse all the cat memes and autocorrect fails you like, because you'll be studying, a bit, the whole time."






This might just help me pass Scalable Architecture 101. Get it in the Chrome store here.

Principals at Portland Public Schools are beginning the school year with intensive staff trainings to help educators understand their own "white privilege" -- the idea being that afterward, they can change their teaching practices and sensitivity to other cultures to boost minority students' performance.

Take PBJs, for instance:

"What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?" says Verenice Gutierrez, principal at Harvey Scott K-8 School.

"Another way would be to say: 'Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that?' Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita."

Hmmm... points for trying?

"The Counting Song" may seem kid-friendly, but with animator Cyriak at the helm, it gets deliciously dark and twisty.
