When I was a little girl I absolutely loved to play with the other kids in the area where we lived. I always pretended to be the teacher and the other kids were my students. They knew that I was the teacher, and no one dared to even try and take my place. We used to have so much fun...or at least I did. I loved to read and to learn about all the interesting things in the world and could never get enough information. I often got into trouble for reading too much, but there was such a vast amount of information that I wanted to learn that I just couldn't stop. I loved school, and I could never understand why other kids did not.
To become a teacher was the obvious choice when choosing a career. &
In order for any person to succeed in running or starting a business, certain concepts have to be understood. Opening a business is not supposed to be 'fun'! It is gruelling and extremely time-consuming especially at first.
The modern world has become very rushed and time does not wait for anybody. For many, the task of surviving, never mind starting a business is too much.
Time truly is a factor in modern life, especially for persons already employed who want to try a business venture.
When we started out we had to sacrifice so much, I remember thinking to myself before we ever thought about having our own business, that I needed to make sure my holidays were in for certain days so that I could watch my sports team play because I never wanted to miss a game!
The Steem platform is undergoing some very interesting changes with the Hard fork around the corner. Dubbed the so-called 'equality' fork, this aims to change the curation curve in order to become more linear, meaning your stake in Steem (SteemPower) will have a much better proportional weight.
For new users, this means that your vote, that was almost weightless before will be strengthened. Since new accounts now receive a slight Steem delegation, this can serve as a very good motivating factor to stay on the platform and make your mark
@steemitblog has the latest in developments
As demonstrated by the above, The price of the Steem Dollar has experienced quite a successful period, seeing the price rise on average.
As with any business or market, a price increase will always attract attention. More users
Iodine is an essential nutrient; the body does not make iodine, so you have to consume it. However, the modern food supply is no longer a reliable source of iodine, and 95% of Americans are deficient in it! This leaves the organism susceptible to the detrimental effects from exposure to harmful elements.
Because we live in an increasingly toxic world, iodine supplementation is especially crucial. Pharmaceuticals, food, water, and air contain high levels of heavy metals like mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic, and the halogens chlorine, fluorine, and bromine.
As a teacher, I feel my number one job is to help my students to develop their ability to think. To be honest, the exact content I teach is insignificant compared to the importance of helping my students to develop their critical thinking skills. My students can literally look up anything about World History that they would like without even having to pause the music they are listening to on their pocket sized computers.
But thinking... there is no App for that... yet.
Because my students have disabilities in reading and writing, it can be difficult to find appropriate materials to inspire deep critical thought. Luckily for me, I have a DVD player, the trust of my bosses, and the freedom to be creative.
One topic that really allows my students to develop and show off their thinking skills is the Cold War.
After a very brief introduction to the topic to ensure everyone is on the same page, I show my students the film *Duck and

In some countries when cops pull you over they are like this:
Sir please exit the car, I have to search your trunk
In other countries it's like this:
Get the fuck out of the car your worthless piece of shit slave or I'll shoot you in the head. I'm your authority here!
It's usually the progressive countries that have cops of the former, and it's usually the more conservative/religious countri
As I mentioned in my introduction post, I teach English at a community college. The bulk of my course load is made up by freshman composition courses because nearly every degree program offered by our institution requires at least one English credit. Of course, this means that my classes are frequently populated by students who are obviously bored or even openly resentful of having to “waste” their time in a class that they perceive as having nothing to do with their desired career paths.
I can sympathize; I felt the same way about the math courses I had to take as an undergrad. Every time I sat down to grind through my math homework, I grumbled about how I’d never need any of this information to teach literature.
I do genuinely belie
For the last five years, I have spent almost every possible moment travelling – anywhere was my goal. I was bitten by the travel bug, and I couldn’t stop itching. My journey took me to teach English in China, study permaculture in Thailand, join the circus in Peru, practice yoga in India, and so much more. I lived in four countries and visited thirteen. In these five years, I also managed to complete a bachelor’s degree and get started on a master’s.

I can whole heartedly testify that I have learned more about the world and myself in the twenty months of my life abroad than I have in all seventeen years in a formal classroom.
I’m not diminishing education – I think that school is fabulous. But travel is better, that is, if its travel by choice, for the sake of wanderlust, knowledge, and personal growth.
We firstly want to thank each and everyone, willing to support us in this new venture. Our main goal is to promote good quality educational content. We want to build a strong community for teachers on this platform, from all over the world. We want to create a place where we can all get together for support. We will share ideas, and resources, and in addition, help more students to achieve success.
As Steemit develops into a more advanced platform, the possibilities for this Educational community
The theory of a simulation Universe
There are some evidence that we do live in a simulation, a computer program that looks so real that we can not escape from. Matrix introduced this idea in a very negative way, an enslaved humanity under the machine rule which used us for producing energy for their own. So as i said there are some evidence that support the idea of our all existence is nothing more than a program, but for what reason?
The simulations and the reasoning
Human kind has evolved to the most intelligent species on our planet and it is capable of great things, some of them are terrible like the hydrogen bomb and others are good and have a bright future like CERN or else known as the Large Hadron Collider. But all this started o
Hey there, Steemians! Today, we published our second children's book, The Magical Adventures of Wonsook. For those who don't know us, we are The Saturn Creative Team. We have been homeschooling for the past five years, and traveling the world for the past four. As part of our homeschool curriculum, we create and produce entertainment for kids such as children's books, music and activities. We even interview young creative talents and showcase them on our Creative Minds United blog.
Another homeschool project complete!
Read my articles concerning education and you will quickly realise two things. I am sceptical of the approach and critical of where it is headed.
I am sceptical because educational systems have not improved considerably in the last 40 years. That seems like a pretty outrageous claim but it seems quite true when you start to look into how much new knowledge is available in psychology and pedagogical understanding, technological support aids and a host of other factors. It still takes twelve odd years with little improvement.
I am critical of where they are headed because it is in the same direction they have always travelled. They aim to create employees in a world where an estimated 70 percent of current jobs will disappear in the next two decades. So, what work will be available for these new graduates?
It is easy to say that new work will open up and that is true. The problem is that the new work must be work that cannot be done by an artificial system or robot but the major
The accompanying discourse portrays DBAE and investigates how different Philippine crafts could fill in as course substance. This area draws from two creators, Robinson Castillano Soria, a Filipino, and Stephen Dobb, an American. Soria's thesis entitled
Workmanship Education and Student Artistic Development crosswise over Three Cultures utilizes the DBAE structure to survey understudy aesthetic accomplishment in the Philippines, Taiwan, and the United States. His proposals incorporate receiving the DBAE approach in workmanship classrooms to improve state-funded school craftsmanship training, and to redesign the personal satisfaction of the overall population.
We all hate. Not one single person reading here, can say with all honesty that they have never hated something or someone. The word HATE has become part of our daily vocabulary, but I think that the word hate is often used in the wrong context.
Why do people hate so easily? Hate is such a strong emotion. People hate because they want t

Hi, this week I tried to pronounce some whole sentences.
Every sentence below had some element in its pronunciation that suprised me.
A general question I have for the Korean speakers reading this: Should I stick to the pronunciation i hear in the audio files or should I stick closer to how i would pronounce every single character?
(my video, my channel)
천천히 말해 주세요 , 다시 한 번 말해 주세요. :
I would pronounce 말해 'marae', but in my audiofiles it sounds like 'barae'
In 영어로 뭐예요 there is again the ㅁ character that I learned is pronounced 'm', but it very clearly sounds like 'b' in my audio files
In 한국어로 뭐예요 the ㅁ sounds like a 'g', this character is killing me :D
In 감사합니다 the ㅂ sounds like an 'm'....
I will train pronouncing more sentences over the next days. Maybe I will see the method that leads to
Today we speak with the monster who helped cover up the Vioxx scandal for his oligarch bosses.

Occult Tool (reporter): It gives me huge hedonistic pleasure to be able to speak with Kenneth Frazier, the current CEO of Merck Pharmaceuticals. (turns to face Kenneth) Welcome to the show, Mr. Frazier. May I call you Kenny?
Kenneth Frazier: Mr. Frazier will do nicely.
Occult Tool (grimaces): Very well, Mr. Frazier. The first thing I’d like to ask is how you came to be CEO of one of the largest and most evil corporations in the world. I imagine your role in defending the company from Vioxx lawsuits when you served as general counsel might have played a significant role in your fiery rise to the top.
Kenneth Frazier: I don’t get to brag a
There are more stars In the Universe, than grains of sand on all the beaches of the Earth. Trillions of planets rotate around billions of suns. We have already found more than 3,500 exoplanets, most of which are barren bare rocks, or the gas giants. Among them there are unique worlds, albeit unsuitable for life, but incredibly amazing.
Removed at 40 light years from us, and located near the star, which contains huge amounts of carbon. This planet is so close to its star that it spends only 18 hours on full turn. The orbit and the rotation cycle coincide in such a way that the same side of the planet is always turned towards the light.
