In December 2015, Defense Secretary Ash Carter stated that starting in 2016 all combat jobs would open to women. The formal process to open combat jobs to women began in January of 2013. This decision opened 237,000 military jobs previously off-limits to women. Those include infantry, armor and special operations. The Army, for example, opened jobs in sequence, starting with engineers in 2014 and applied the lessons it learned in that branch to armor and infantry units in 2015. Those two branches account for more than 90,000 jobs, the largest share of combat roles closed to women. Currently there are about 1.4 million members of the active-duty military, about 14% of them women. The Pentagon is developing gender-neutral tests that men and women must pass to qualify for combat roles. The Marine Corps already has developed five physical tests that 400 men and women will take. They include lifting and handling a simulated tank round and scaling a wall, said Col. Jon Aytes, of the Marine Corps policy branch. Women already serve in combat roles, flying warplanes, for example. Since the start of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, 292,000 women have served in war zones . . .

In a flipped classroom, students watch online lectures, collaborate in online discussions, or carry out research at home and engage in concepts in the classroom with the guidance of the instructor. The video above was created by Mr. Kinnison for his physics class. Two . . .
