A lot of teachers just don't know, Sidney says, referring to that double stigma. I had a good relationship with my special education teacher, but when it came to some of my mainstream education teachers, there was a disconnect. Sidney says one day in 10th-grade English class, students were reading a book out loud that contained the N-word one too many times for him. When it was his turn to read, he says he tried to be silly by replacing the racial slur with neighbor and other words starting with N. Even though Sidney says he just wanted to ease the tension, he was reprimanded for not taking the assignment seriously. And across the country, many students report feeling that same disconnect . Nationally, more than 80 percent of teachers are white; at the same time, students of color make up more than half of public school students .

Through water, pollution travels freely, and in these times with Neptune in Pisces, we have an energy circulating that is driven towards the healing of the collective. With so much pollution on the inside and on the outside, the use of clean water, clean air , clean medicine and clean remedies are the best way to go. The homeopathy: Pisces rules the collective and individual’s immune system, and it is here, the borderline between oneself and others, that illnesses and ailments contract as we rub off against each other, as we meet in realms we are not conscious of, exist. Neptune has a correlation to the collective unconscious and makes me think of the theory of miasms, fundamental to understanding homeopathy and illness. I had the great privilege of being able to talk to one of the world’s leading homeopaths Christian Arndt, who was also born the same day April 10th a couple of hundred years later than the forefather of homeopathy, also from the cradle of homeopathy, Germany.

THE modernist architect I. M. Pei, who was once pilloried for plonking a glass pyramid into the courtyard of the Louvre, turns 100 Wednesday with his controversial creation now an icon of the French capital. The Chinese-American designer endured a roasting from critics before the giant glass structure opened in 1989, with up to 90% of Parisians said to be against the project at one point. "I received many angry glances in the streets of Paris," Pei later said, confessing that "after the Louvre I thought no project would be too difficult." Yet in the end even that stern critic of modernist "carbuncles", Britain's Prince Charles, pronounced it "marvellous". And the French daily Le Figaro, which had led the campaign against the "atrocious" design, celebrated its genius with a supplement on the 10th anniversary of its opening. Pei's masterstroke was to link the three wings of the world's most visited museum with vast underground galleries bathed in light from his glass and steel pyramid.
