After 18 years on television Between the Lines begins airing in New York, New Jerseyand Connecticut, known throughout the land of television as the Tri-State Area, and the largest TV market in the country.
For the first time all my New York and New Jersey friends and family will be able to see the show, along with many of my wonderful guests who live in the area. Please help spread the word through all your social media outlets and connections and give them the link to this blog.
We begin airing on WNYE, March 2 and every Sunday morning at 9:00 AM. WNYE can be seen over the airwaves and all cable outlets on channel 25, unless you have Cablevision, which airs WNEY on channel 22.
We hope the new morning ritual for all New Yorkers will now include a taste of Between the Lines, along with their bagel and cream cheese, favorite cup of latte and New York Timescrossword puzzle.
Please tell your friends, family and social network connections to “like” me on Facebook and follow me on twitter @barrykibrick so they can know when we start airing in the Tri-State area. And if you already haven’t done the same, please do.
Making his debut on many of my stations this week is Jeffrey Bennett. Jeffrey is a renowned astrophysicist and mathematician. Our conversation about his book, Math for Life, is one that will allow you to see the world with new eyes, even if you have a fear of math.
Jeffrey firmly believes that we are born with an affinity for mathematics, but through improper teaching it is drummed out of us. The current math curriculum is taught using a content-driven approach but would be better using a context-driven approach, starting with the things that students find most meaningful.
Mathematics underlies nearly everything in modern society…
All you need to do is open your mind to new ways of thinking that will enable you to reason as clearly with numbers and ideas of mathematics as you do without them.
Mathematics itself derives from a Greek term meaning “inclined to learn.”
One thing I learned was from a friend named Russ who shared a life lesson with me that I have never forgotten. His grandfather David Sarnoff of RCA and NBC fame and a mathematician and scientist himself, believed that since every equation must be balanced, there is one crucial equation we should keep in mind.
If there is no solution, there is no problem.
So if you run up against one of those insurmountable problems just remember, stay balanced.
