Around , one of the first things I ever did in quantum computing theory was to work on a problem that Fortnow and Rogers suggested in a paper: is it possible to separate P from BQP relative to a random oracle? Or to the contrary: suppose that a quantum algorithm Q makes T queries to a Boolean input string X. It would underscore that superpolynomial quantum speedups depend on structure. I never managed to solve this problem.
Earlier this year I was teaching my parent workshop at a church in Castle Rock, CO and Focus sent a crew to record the event. Tune into your radio today, or just jump on the Focus on the Family Broadcast page and they should have the show posted online by mid afternoon.

Instructors are under pressure to integrate technology into their traditional or online instruction, but often they aren't sure what to do or why they should do it. The Technology Toolbelt for Teaching offers instructors a down-to-earth guide to common technologies, explains the pedagogical purposes they serve, and shows how they can be used effectively in online or face-to-face classrooms. Designed to be easy to use, the book includes a decision-making matrix for each technology tool: a series of questions that teachers can use to decide whether these tools support their teaching goals. This comprehensive resource contains an array of useful tools that address problems of organization such as a time management calendar, aids for scheduling meetings, and mind-mapping or graphic organizers.
