School whiteboards a danger to eyesight

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 14 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 14 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 14 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

School whiteboards a danger to eyesight (Times)

This is something I’ve been wondering about for a while. I don’t think that these would have any effect if only used for a little while at a time, but if they are placed in all classrooms and are expected to be used for long periods each day, then it’s clearly not going to be good for teachers’ eyesight. Every time I’ve used them, the bright light has annoyed me. I’m certain that this is a greater health risk than the chalk dust from a good old black board. But this is a cleaner solution, and therefore necessarily better in the eyes (no pun intended) of some.

Somebody using pheromons to attract women, whether is real it?
