I created this Newspaper to put forth a much needed point of view. I have talked to many who have worked for Milwaukee's dominant news source on the side, and they have even expressed interest in my point of view.
The Pulitzer prize was founded after Pulitzer because he created a newspaper that exposed great wrongdoings. He went against the other established Newspapers with his Newspaper that exposed corruption. His newspaper became number one. World News Starts Here!

In Order to Teach Creativity We Need to Teach Children Not to be Afraid of Making Mistakes
In Order to Teach Creativity We Need to Teach Children Not to be Afraid of
I heard that on public radio the other day.At first it sounded good to me.You know the speaker made a good case for it.But then I started to think about it and in
doing so I have to ask myself, "What planet arte you from?"
To teach a child not to be afraid of making mistakes is not the nature of
The nature of true and utilizable creativity and creativity of beauty is
indeed that a child learned how not to make mistakes and extended that
knowledge with regard to creativity!
It is called transformational learning.It implies that you learned one thing in the first place without making
So what is the nature of someone who wants to be able to teach children not
to be afraid to make mistakes?It is the
nature of someone who knows that they do not have the ability to teach a child
not how to make mistakes!It is an
admittance of a total failure of the educational system.
Creativity is of no value unless it is responsible creativity.And I am indeed talking in broader terms of
creativity than just representational or nonrepresentational artwork.
What those who are making decisions with regard to our educational system
fail to realize is the creativity is one level of intelligence above the
ability to not make mistakes.
And if you want to extend the concept to art that people do indeed find
more pleasing than other art what you are likely to find out is that those
whose art is liked the best were going along on their merry way in life when
someone who was not afraid to make mistakes in life harmed them! But don't get
all hung up on that because what you don't want to recognize is that the person
who is the great artist was always going to be the great artist.Why?Because the creativity principle is one step above the knowledge of
knowing how not to make mistakes!
And Jesus Christ, the whole nature of the education system is to learn not
to make mistakes.
