The lecture below is a little over seven minutes and is about Microsoft’s document reading tool Read Aloud, which is available in both Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Word, and as a standalone program available from the Microsoft store. The lecture also refers to an article that I wrote some time ago Read Aloud: The Proofreading Tool.
Intelligent design 15 years after Kitzmiller v Dover
This year marks the 15th anniversary of Kitzmiller v. Dover 2005. The Federal Court decision was an important one for anyone who supports science education. Judge John E. Jones III ruled that the Creationist idea of intelligent design violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment and was not science. The following lecture demonstrates that intelligent design has still not gained acceptance within the scientific community and that it is simply creationism relabeled.

- Intelligent Design is not Science
- Intelligent Design is a Social Theory
- The Separation of Church and State

Some two years ago, I wrote a post about Microsoft discontinuing development of what was then OneNote 2016 in favor of OneNote for Windows 10. That announcement went over like a lead balloon, and since then Microsoft has stated that it will continue development of what is now called OneNote side by side with OneNote for Windows 10.
I recently took another look at OneNote for Windows 10 to see what updates, if any, had been made. I found that the only one stand out for me was immersive reader; it is the only reason I have OneNote for Windows 10 on my machine, but I rarely if ever use it. It is likely because of my workflow and when I choose to do my proofreading. Nevertheless, immersive reader is a worthwhile and important tool which I hope comes to OneNote.
Not much has been added to OneNote for Windows 10 except immersive reader, and when compared to what is missing it’s not enough to make OneNote for Windows 10 daily note-taking program. As demonstrated in the video while embedded files can now be edited if they’re embedded using OneNote for Windows 10 they cannot be viewed and either iOS or Android versions of OneNote. Additionally, there is still no ability just save notebooks to the hard drive. Finally, there is still no ability to create and use page templates.
Lectures on YouTube
This week I discovered that PowerPoint has the capability to record presentations as videos that can be uploaded to YouTube or any website. This capability provides the opportunity for me to actually give the lectures I write. Below are examples of this capability. However, they are not the best from a performance standpoint; but the information is accurate.
This lecture and the three above are part of the unit Duck, Cover, and Conform America in the 1950s.
This lecture is part of a group materials on Watergate, which I created some years ago.
