"Joshua Beckford learned to read fluently by the time he was two and a half and taught himself to touch-type on a computer before he could write using a pencil.
He can speak Japanese, practices medical surgery on a computer simulator and has completed more than 1,000 maths problems.”

Libraries in many big cities often serve as de facto homeless shelters — a place for people living on the streets to find quiet and warmth — and it can make others, there to just check out books or videos, uncomfortable.

KQED’s Scott Shafer reports that’s why the San Francisco Public Library has hired a full-time social worker. She spends her days roaming the library floors, keeping an eye out for regulars who look like they could use her help. And sometimes she hires the formerly homeless patrons she’s helped, like Joe Bank, to do outreach under her supervision.

L.A.’s Central Library needs this big time.

Almost drowned in that edit, but I made it out alive. Now after a palate cleanser, I must insert the changes and print off another new draft to pare and sculpt. I need new eyes or amnesia.

This is me now. Good luck!

This gives me a Harry Potter, bigger on the inside than the outside vibe…lol
