YM's distance ed registration for September

Well, this was the easy part! 
Slowly, slowly... three courses last year was SO hard:  I cannot imagine how we will cope with SEVEN.
Plus full-time yeshiva, plus night seder, plus 3 other kids???  :-o
 
He wants to graduate properly, not get some rinky-dinky GED like the other kids... and I do agree that his yeshiva does not emphasize English subject enough to get him into university.
 
But, sheesh.  Just sheesh.  I'm tired just thinking about it.  Seven courses, times 20 modules each... equals 140 modules.  Divided by maybe 35 weeks in the school year = 4 modules per week.  Hmm.  That sounds doable, on paper.  With Yamim Tovim, there are probably more like 30 weeks,  however.  Which is FIVE modules per week.  One per day, Sunday through Thursday, rain or shine.
 
Maybe we can do it, after all... but I already know that some of these modules are going to be huge.
Sigh.

My son, {yup, ds1!}, was a student ...in the 2008/2009 school year.
 
I would like to register him in the following courses for the coming 2009/2010 school year:
 
 
I wasn't certain whether the civics course (CHV2O) is a half- or full-credit course.  If it's a full credit, we may end up not keeping the Science course, as that is probably too ambitious for one year.
 
Please confirm that you've received this and let me know what else is necessary in order to register.
 
Thanks!

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
