Here's something I think all parents and teachers should know about. Those whiteboards that are popping up everywhere instead of chalkboards can be hazardous to your childrens' eyesight. In England, they are doing a study on this, because of concerns that came up three years ago while the boards were being installed. The engineers doing the work claimed they were dazzled by the brightness, and saw stars for a while. The whiteboards can apparently cause damage to peripheral vision. If you are a parent, and they use these boards in school, or if you are a teacher, or executroid who uses whiteboards in your work, perhaps there is a way to turn down the brightness on the display. Just something you may want to consider. We don't want to damage anyone's eyes.
