Re: “Impress Hot Pot

If you have never had Chinese hot pot, you have to come here. My wife and I lived in China for 3 years (1 year in Shijiazhuang and 2 years in Nanjing) and this is EXACTLY like the hot pots in China. The other Chinese restaurants are all "Meiguo-Chungua-fan" or Americanized Chinese food - Chinese style cooked to American expectations. Impress is not - it is genuine as it is served in China. Suggestions - the hot water that the food is cooked in gets more spicy as it cooks, so get the split cooking - hot and plain. Your lips will thank you. Also - most of the Fu-Yuan (waiters) are from China, so ask them to help you mix the various sauces. Since hot pot is a cook it yourself buffet, you choose what you will cook. Experiment. I like the lotus roots, the various mushrooms and the sea food best.

Re: “Tucson Audubon Society Mason Center

Easy to reach in NW Tucson. Helpful and friendly staff. Very accessible 1/4 mile nature trail and 1/2 mile birding trail. Good place to go for a birding neophyte. (Wrong phone number shown.)

Re: “Anyone Can Teach. It's Easy! (At Least That's What Republican Legislators and the Governor Tell Me.)

Response to tinkering:

Allowing school districts to train teachers is informed public policy and it is absolutely predictable that it will lead to greater academic gains. The negative coefficient for a masters degree is an absolute indictment of our current teacher education system. When something is damaging results, you should get rid of it - immediately, immediately.

Re: “Editor's Note

Dear Mr. Heusler: There is no such thing as a "carefully researched argument against planned parenthood." Have you given thought to just standing on a street corner downtown and handing out copies? We need a replacement for Sweeney who passed away some years ago.

Re: “Best Delicatessen

Feigs was sold and became 5th Street Deli. Then it was sold and became Eli's Deli, where quality and service are a thing of the past. Rincon Market hasn't carried kosher food for over 10 years, since they got caught selling non-kosher meat labelled as kosher. Jason's Deli ha snever carried kosher food.

Re: “Anyone Can Teach. It's Easy! (At Least That's What Republican Legislators and the Governor Tell Me.)

College graduates these days are loaded up with loan debt, and they have astronomically inflated tuition fees to look forward to in educating their own children. That is a reality created by the much-vaunted operations of the free market, by treating education as a commodity, and by the relationships between loan peddlers in the financial industry and our government.

Last time I checked the military was a profession that could be entered straight from high school -- or, if you undergo officer training, the military academies are tuition free and provide stipends to enrollees.

Unless your idea is to make teachers' college educations free and to provide government-sponsored cost-of-living stipends to support them while they get their degrees, the "compare & contrast" story provided does not apply.

So you are saying that now, teachers are only in it for the money? They used to do it because they were dedicated to the students and the process. Could the teachers unions blinded them from the facts?

Thank God on this Memorial Day weekend that our military serves others based on their own sacrifice, rather than pay alone.

Re: “Nearly Mythical

Hmm...I am new to the weekly (and Chow) but tend to agree with HumanBean, although his initial email was a tad brusque. I saw that this was a "Chow Feature" so I did not expect a review. But after some browsing, I see that they do not have a "review" category. Perhaps they should.

Re: “Anyone Can Teach. It's Easy! (At Least That's What Republican Legislators and the Governor Tell Me.)

Did you ever consider the possibility, Huppenthal, that teaching has trouble attracting applicants because the salaries in the profession are much lower than they are for most other professions requiring college degrees and ongoing education and / or master's degrees to maintain credentialing?

Lower the bar educationally and you will add people who don't want to take the time and trouble to study child development and pedagogical methods before teaching, people with BAs who aren't able to get higher paying jobs in other fields and who think that when it comes to educating the next generation, "winging it" is quite good enough. This initiative will not increase the so-called "emotional stamina" quotient of the labor pool or its intelligence level or its maturity. Quite the reverse. And it will without a doubt decrease the degree to which applicants have mastered a professional knowledge base or engaged in supervised practice through student teaching.

It is a very bad idea and will do further damage to students in this state.
