  Magical Thinking in Complementary and Alternative Medicine (Skeptical Inquirer November 2001)
Many of today's "complementary" or "alternative" systems of healing involve magical beliefs, manifesting ways of thinking based in principles of cosmology and causality that are timeless and absolutely universal.

American, when used as an adjective, can mean "of the United States of America" or "of or relating to the Americas"; when used as a noun, "United States citizen", "residing in the Americas", or less frequently "American English".

 American Rhetoric: Martin Luther King, Jr. - I Have a Dream
When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir.
This note was a promise that all men, yes, fl men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned.

In this experiment, one group was taught spelling words and math facts in a distributed condition and another in a massed condition.
To summarize what we know from the laboratory: There is a mountain of evidence suggesting that spacing study time leads to better memory of the material; the effect applies to at least some of the types of learning students do--fact learning; and it seems to hold for school-age children.
In an American history class, that set of ideas might include the key principles that the Founders intended to capture in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
