Anyone who can read fluently themselves and has the time to spare can apply to become a Read Easy volunteer Reading Coach. No special qualifications are required, as the reading scheme is designed for anyone to use. Once accepted by a local group, volunteers are required to attend an Initial Coach Training day before being paired with a new reader. This is followed by a Consolidation Training day after volunteers have started coaching. Reading Coaches are asked to commit to meet regularly with their reader twice a week for only 30 minutes at a time.

I see this all the time with the missus. The major problem with women is they spend far too much time thinking... analyzing... trying to work out what other people's feelings are.
The missus asks "what are you thining about"
Missus: "what nothing?"
Me "yes, until you interrupted me my brain was completely empty, like a goldfish, not a neuron firing, on sleep mode, inactive"
Missus "oh, how is that possible, I'm always thinking about stuff"
Me: "try not to, it will do you good, now I'm shutting down again, don't disturb me please"

The new youtube restricted censorship mode (at the far bottom of youtube) got me thinking about thinking. When I was in O-Level classes at bog-standard North of England labour heartland comp in the 1970s lessons were quite often suspended in that discussions would quite often break out in Geography, History and even Science & Maths on current affairs and other topics.
These teachers were all die hard left wingers with the History teacher verging on a commi and the Geography teacher especially at A-level particularly keen on playing Canasta with her six pupils. What has struck me now and deeply affected me over the years is that they all encouraged open debate and analysis about subjects often to the detriment of their lessons and pupils grades. The current left wingers absolutely hate debate and to me this means they are not socialists at all, if they were cold logic and reasoning would be an important way of getting a valid point or position over.
Instead we have the rabid shouting down approach, which at the time in the 1980s was the Trotskyist Derek Hatton militant approach.
Now we have corporations via their advertising money directly suppressing debate by attempting to stop debate and analysis happening in the first place.
