Groundhog Almighty
Photograph from the Everett Collection; illustration by Gary Hallgren. Enlarge this image NEW movie series from the Museum of Modern Art, "The Hidden God: Film and Faith," features some pretty brooding stuff. There's a 1955 Danish movie about a man who thinks he is Jesus Christ, an Ingmar Bergman pastiche about a tormented pastor, a Roberto Rossellini movie about monks. These are, of course, the "intellectual with a capital I" films that audiences might expect at a religious-theme retrospective organized by a major museum. Subtitles and all that fancy stuff. With one exception. On Thursday, the opening-night feature at the Gramercy Theater, where the series is being presented, was "Groundhog Day," the 1993 movie starring Bill Murray as a sarcastic television weatherman forced by a twist of fate and magic to relive one day of his life, Feb. 2, over and over. Since its debut a decade ago, the film has become a curious favorite of religious leaders of many faiths, who all see in "Groundhog Day" a reflection of their own spiritual messages. Curators of the series, polling some 35 critics in the literary, religious and film worlds to suggest films with religious interpretations, found that "Groundhog Day" came up so many times that there was actually a squabble over who would write about it in the retrospective's catalog.

National Groundhog Job Shadow Day
OPPORTUNITIES FOR HOTELIER INVOLVEMENT On February 2, 2004, students across the country will get an up-close look at the different careers and opportunities available to them in today’s workforce. Through National Groundhog Job Shadow Day (NGJSD), students are paired with a mentor who they will "shadow" throughout the day to experience how the skills they learn in the classroom can be applied to the real world. Here’s what you can do to show your support:
  • Have students shadow a general manager or executive staff member. Students will get a chance to learn a great deal about the lodging industry by following and assisting an experience hotel professional with their daily activities and duties. A shadow representative can teach them about the skills that are needed to succeed in the hospitality business. The students may assist with reservations, customer service, meeting and conventions, daily staff agenda, etc.
    By letting them “shadow” directly in a lodging association environment, students will get a prime understanding of how individual lodging state associations handle their legislative, regulatory, and operating practices. The state executive can have the students attend state and in-office meetings, assist with daily duties, etc.

The Groundhog Equation
A Brief History
If the groundhog emerges from its burrow and sees its shadow, that's an omen for six more weeks of winter, and the groundhog returns underground. However, if the groundhog emerges from its burrow and doesn't see its shadow, it's a sign of spring, and the groundhog stays above ground. What's the story behind Groundhog's Day? According to an old Scottish rhyme, "If Candlemas is fair and clear, There'll be two winters in the year." Candlemas, a holy day dating back to the early Christians, was celebrated on February 2, 40 days after Christmas, and midway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. On this day it was customary for priests to distribute candles that had been blessed to the people. The Romans carried Candlemas to the lands they conquered, and eventually the tradition made its way across Europe. The Germans added a hedgehog seeing its shadow which is more in keeping with present day tradition. If the animal sees its shadow (on a day that is "fair and clear"), it portends bad weather (thus "two winters"). Six weeks was thought to be the duration of the second winter.

After explaining and discussing shadows, use a projector to create the child's silhouette on a piece of black paper. Trace it with a white crayon or chalk. Cut out and mount on contrasting paper. This makes a nice keepsake for parents. Children love to see what they look like in profile!! Can also use this as a introduction to President's Day, since Lincoln and Washington are frequently seen in silhouette.

Add olive eyes and marshmallow teeth to the potato by using glue or toothpicks. Once the groundhog is dry you can glue gun onto the circle. The gluing of the potato is done after all this because it will drip if standing up.

Job shadowing enables young people to "shadow" a workplace mentor as he or she goes through a normal day on the job, providing an up-close look at how the skills learned in school are put in action in the workplace. It is an excellent opportunity to expose students to dental careers, specifically, dentistry, dental assisting, dental hygiene and dental laboratory technology.

Learning Technology and Groundhog Day
J Terence Mayes
Learning technology has been through several previous cycles involving high expectation of a revolution in educational practice, followed by complete disappointment. This time there are new reasons for optimism, yet the expectation will again be unfulfilled unless the technology meets real learner needs. To understand what these needs are a theory of learning in educational settings is required. Such a theory should then guide the further development of learning technology. Here, an account of learning as a continuous cycle of refining concepts is described, providing a framework for understanding educational need, and indicating where technology might best meet that need. Stages of learning are mapped onto types of courseware, and a new kind of support for the crucial role of dialogue is proposed.
In Groundhog Day the hero escapes from the loop by finally recognising his true nature. Are we now at the point of breaking free in education? Expectations are again high (MacFarlane Report, 1993). It is very widely believed that this time is different, and the educational systems of the near-future will be radically different from those that have long characterised organised teaching and learning. Let us first consider why this might or might not be true in the context of UK higher education.
What's different now?

Groundhog Day "Don't drive angry. Don't drive angry."
29 Feb 2004

10:52 AM A few of the most illuminating insights I've had in the last several years were not really new to me, I had in fact heard some of them before. In fact, I even thought I believed them. In reality, I didn't believe them. I may have agreed with them, but I didn't believe them. If you read something I write, you're reading the thoughts and words I own. You don't own them, and they're not yours. Chances are, you'll either agree with them, or disagree with them. If it's something you agree with, you might go so far as to say that it is "true." But none of that means that it is true for you, that it is true in your life. It's just true in this mental construct you have in your head of things that are true that may or may not have anything to do with how you run your life. Those are things we seldom look at. Those are the things you own , and given the fact that they pretty much shape your life, it's probably worth your while to take an inventory of those things. Chances are you're a pretty busy person, and while you agree that it's probably a good idea, you won't do it. And that's okay I guess. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. A lot of people, maybe even most people, get through life just fine that way. Life's like that sometimes. But if you really want to own some of these ideas, then you have to

Your faith is obviously incredibly strong. Your use of a comdedic movie to attempt to demonstrate your mythology is merely pitiful. That's just sad. One day I do hope you use your intellect for something that could possibly benefit your fellow man or planet. Or even yourself! Good Luck!

For crying out loud, guys, it's only a movie! Have any of you considered the fact that God created us as creative beings, and that as a consequence of that we are given the ability to create art for arts sake, without any biblical requirements of Christian meaning, slogans, and no need for ambiguous references to God, Jesus and the Bible. The link between the Israelites and Groundhog day is really stretching the bounds of what is considered to be a normal Christian life and crosses over into religious fanaticism. Next you'll be comparing the Simpsons with the Book of Revelation. Lighten up and enjoy the movie the way it was written- as a piece of entertainment. MovieName: Groundhog day

What A Groundhog Can Teach You SEDUCTION SCIENCE CONFIDENCE MAX LEGENDARY LOVER PALM READING What A Groundhog Can Teach You By Derek Vitalio A lot of guys tell me that they have trouble developing the right attitude around women... the playful, relaxed, charasmatic attitude that women really go for. Of course, being the kind of man that exudes that kind of attractive energy is easier said then done. You may have seen other guys with it, but somehow it eludes the rest of us. Well rent the movie "Groundhog's Day" starring Bill Murray and watch it. Murray is the typical anti-seducer who turns women off with his pessimistic, dreary attitude on life. He's pretty much given up on women and himself. And nobody likes him. Then one morning, on Groundhog's Day, he wakes up and day after day he experiences the same day over and over again. Every day is just like the last one. The only difference is HIM and what HE does. Very quickly realizes there are no consequences to his actions because no matter what he does that day, the next morning it's as if nothing ever happened.

DVD of the Day Worth Watching Again and Again and... BY LINDA COWGILL A funny and poignant tale of real transformation, Groundhog Day is a true original. It provides Bill Murray with his perfect role: the egotistical TV weatherman who discovers his humanity after a spin in his own private Twilight Zone . Critics laud Murray's performance in 2003's Lost in Translation , but this is the movie that proved he was more than just a comedian and a real movie star. Groundhog Day: Special Edition Screenplay by Danny Rubin and Harold Ramis Phil Connors, an unbearably smug TV weatherman in Philadelphia goes on the annual assignment to Punxsutaweny for the Groundhog Day festivities. With him are cheery producer Rita and sidekick cameraman Larry. Phil detests the silly tradition and the small-town schmaltz, and insists they leave after filing their report. But a blizzard (that Phil has failed to predict) turns them back. Phil's stuck in his own private hell, Punxsutaweny, PA, and now his nightmare really begins. He wakes up the next morning, and it's Groundhog Day all over again.

Groundhog Day
Tuesday was Groundhog Day. Traditions don't have to make good sense, but they often do. What's so special about February 2? We don't have groundhogs in California, but if any gopher stuck his head out of the ground this week, I'm sure he saw his shadow because it's been sunny and clear. By tradition, this means we'll have six more weeks of winter. But isn't this backwards? Is there any reasonable way to explain why sunshine means more winter, while clouds mean that spring is here? Shouldn't it be just the opposite? Groundhog Day on February 2 is exactly midway between solstice and equinox, as are May Day and Halloween. It's also Candlemas Day when candles are blessed and the Christmas season is finally over. It's part of this ancient European tradition that clear skies foretell six more weeks of winter until the equinox. This makes some weather sense. Clear nights are usually the coldest, because heat can radiate back into the sky. Cloud cover holds the heat in like a blanket, which might melt snow and give seedlings an early start. Notes: The official groundhog is Punxsutawney Phil , who didn't see his shadow this year. So spring is just around the corner. Phil's only been right about 40% of the time. I'm not impressed.

We continue our work here at Sunrise to motivate students, to encourage them to work hard, and to help them take responsibility for their learning. You might want to consider the following "Three T's" to help foster and support your child's learning... Time ~ Take time to read with your child every day. Visit the library and help your child select high-interest books that he/she can read independently. Read aloud to your child. Listen to your child read. And read non-fiction to encourage your child's natural interests and curiosity. Talk ~ Talk with your child about school. Ask open ended questions, rather than "What did you do at school today?" Talk about your child's accomplishments and offer assistance with work that is difficult. Talk to your child about his/her role in the learning process. Adults can teach and support, but children have to do the actual work of learning. Teach ~ Teach your child responsibility by giving him/her chores at home. When children recognize their contributions to the
family, the value of teamwork, and the importance of being accountable, they transfer that sense of accountability to their schoolwork.
