Ivan has taken my electricity (so far for 30 hours) and restricted movement so I am working on ever-diminishing battery capacity and candle power.
But, yesterday, the automatic service at the electric company assured me the power would be restored by 5 PM on October 1. I'm hoping that means that someone there was exercising a sense of humor.
It leads to short wave BBC World news reports and interviews but not much chance to work on email answers.
So, until later,

  Two years ago from when? Longer ago than that I remember (it being translated that) Vasili Vasilovitch said that is was hard to find educational activity in schools in his country or in ours. Not never. I think I saw it in Schola 91 in Moscow not too long after that longer ago talk.

    About two years ago, on a cool Southern California day, Vasili Davydov addressed a group of social scientists at the University of California, San Diego. He began his talk with a paradox. He had come, he said, to tell us about educational activity. He promised to exhibit principles that promote educational activity, and applied programs deriving from those principles. Then he laughed. "But you'll never see educational activity in the school," he said, and laughed again.
