Educator Andrea Jones posted: Preschool update: We're working hard already! (L)ast week we also visited our school garden, observed and collected, then at snack time tried all kinds of veggies we found! Everyone tried something new...
We also studied how apples grow, dissected them and learned about the functions of the different parts (skin/peel, seeds/pips, stem, etc) then we tasted and charted our favorite kinds! This week we will make applesauce together - yum!
Jill says: Five days to go!

Daily there’s some new snafu with the Equifax breach; they have extended their offer of a free credit freeze through November 21. Lifehacker brings you their latest remedial version in this article.
Warning: If someone calls to “verify your Equifax account,” hang up.
Toledo’s A Grey Area Computer Repair linked DeadState’s post, and reminds those drooling over the iPhone X there is a downside to ease of access: “With Face ID, cops can just point your phone at your face while they have you in handcuffs then look through your phone without a warrant.”
A Grey Area also linked ARSTECHNICA’s article “Billions of Devices Imperiled by New Clickless Bluetooth Attack.” Is yours one of them?

Seth Rowe is a 2017 THS alumnus. In late August, Seth was the victim of a hit and run while cycling on Park Rd. Seth's injuries will require lots of physical therapy. This is an opportunity for the community to support him and his family with the cost of medical care he needs.
