Let They Play

...August 25, 2010 Let Them Play By Jane Ching Fung ”What is 'Choice Time?,'" she demanded. "Students don’t have time to play." My heart sank when I heard these words coming from the mouth of a district administrator. Everyone on our kindergarten team had included "Choice" minutes in her daily schedule. Choice was a time for students to engage in centers and activities that were not teacher directed, assigned, or graded but intentionally designed to be open-ended, student driven, and to promote unstructured interactions among the children. Dare I say that "Choice" was time set aside for our young students to play? Since when did the word "play" become outlawed in kindergarten? I remember a time when kindergarten classrooms were stocked with wooden blocks, paint, and dramatic-play corners complete with costuming, furniture, appliances, and play food. Not so long ago, there was a period during the day when we encouraged kindergarten students to freely explore, create, and interact with the materials and people around them. On the surface, children may appear to be only "having fun" during this unstructured time, but take a closer look and you’ll discover what I know: Play is so much more than idle entertainment. Play, including the ability to make your own choices, helps children develop and use essential social-emotional and academic-learning skills. Through play, I have seen my students develop social, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities in a safe,......

...twice apparently I don't learn my lesson the first time. I have cried many of nights and made my family cry for mistakes that they never should have cried about. If I didn't change my attitude my only two options were either jail or death because I wanted to "hard" as it were and I became a very untrustworthy person. I have had to change my whole life style to fit people I thought I wanted to be like. I had no idea who Dohnavyn was I was just a person trying to find him and the only route that I felt was the easiest to go by was the one that left me being bad or as what we call cool. If I can get accepted into college it would be an amazing goal that I want to achieve. I don't want to hurt my family no more I want to make my family be happy when the mention my name. I have caused them enough grief to write a dictionary. I feel I'm ready for college because I like challenges I like to work things out and see how to make something better. Than it already is. I want to go to college because I need to work on my people's skills. Even though I can make friends easy I need to improve in not talking back and listen to what is being said and not replying with my mouth but with my mind. College is a place I feel that can help me in this area. Even though just going out into the workforce may seem like a good idea I don't think it is because some jobs require a college degree and I do not want to spend the rest of my life flipping burgers at burger king.

...the universe has a purpose (telos) just like a watch has a purpose (to tell time). For example, the purpose of a human heart is to pump blood. [3] The Argument from Design Premise 1.If an object has a design then it must have a designer. (A watch, for example, could not have come into existence without a designer.) Premise 2. Nature has a design. (For example, the human heart has a specific design and function.) Conclusion 1.Therefore nature has a designer. Conclusion 2.The designer of nature is God. We can walk through these premises. Premise One is the major premise of the argument. It instructs us to look at something that is unknown to us and determine if there is any kind of “design” in that thing. Paley’s main example is a watch. We all recognize that the gears of a watch are designed to turn hands in order that we know what time it is. But the premise asserts something very strong at this point: It says that any object that has design must have a designer. Premise Two of the argument claims that nature has a design. One supporting example would be the organs of the human body. The human eye has a clear purpose: to allow the body to see. For all (or nearly all) of the organs of the human body we can give a similar explanation. The second premise also asserts that nature as a whole has a design. This is a bit harder to prove than each organ having a function. But think of the oxygenation cycle. Plants breathe in......

Lets Get Together

...Part 4: Organisational Processes BOSS Magazine article Let’s Get Together Source: B. Head, “Let’s Get Together,” Boss Magazine, September 14, 2001, p. 52. The strategic alliance is redefining competition in the new networked economy. But to make the most of collaboration, you need to pay attention to age-old issues like trust. It took Siebel Systems six years to rise from start-up to star. By 2000 the software company was raking in $US1.8 billion annual revenues and ranked third on Fortune's 100 fastest growing companies list. This status came from forging alliances where it made sense and where it could. Siebel, founded in 1993, was early to market with e-business software, but being first wasn't enough. Siebel needed to fight off rival start-ups by developing critical mass fast; and that demanded the support of seasoned partners to help break into international corporate accounts. Today the company refers to its web of alliances with hardware companies, software companies, consulting firms and service providers as a "partner ecosystem". Siebel's is not an entirely benign ecosystem, though; it is inhabited by some of the most dangerous corporate predators in the IT sector - companies such as Microsoft, Cisco, Compaq and IBM. These are companies that compete and yet collaborate, and even while they collaborate they compete. Siebel's ecosystem is the tense model with which millennial management will have to come to grips.

Let There Be Death

...Let there be death xxxxxx BCOM/275 July xxxxxx xxxxxxx Let there be death The death penalty has been a great controversy over the years. Many people do not agree with the death penalty at all. I believe that whatever horrible crime that someone has done should have that crime done onto them. One example is when a grown man rapes a little child; I would make sure he gets castrated. I would want him to remember what happened to the little child and how wrong he was. Lethal Injection Lethal injection is an easy way out but Mr. Cuomo states “True life imprisonment is a more effective deterrent than capital punishment.” (Cuomo, 2011) I do not agree with this; life in prison means they get to eat three hot meals, get exercise, watch cable television, sleep in a bed, have internet access and take showers all on the tax payer’s dime. It is so much scarier to me that I would get the death penalty and cease to be on this earth than to have life in prison. They have more than an elderly person in a nursing facility. Even in the bible it says to give these people the death punishment. “In Genesis 9:6, God told Noah that the penalty for intentional murder should be death: “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.” [ (Mohler, 2014) ]. This is something that I feel very strongly about and is something I believe to be true. “In the simplest form, the Bible condemns murder and calls for the death of the......

...Fear August 2, 2015 at 1:01 AM It’s been awhile since we did a book club post, huh? I had originally intended to post this in July instead of the Discussion Post; however, so much crap was happening on the back-end side of the site (multiple DDoS attacks, the submission form turning evil after the last plugin update and causing the server to overload itself, etc) as well as various offline issues that I ended up just having to shelve this post until things were a bit calmer. So if you were wondering why there was no Discussion Post last month, that’s why. I had originally intended to have submissions re-opened (check the sidebar Submission Status for the latest update on this; please don’t derail this post with questions that are already answered there – when submissions re-open, it will be a separate post) all the way back in the beginning of July; so I had felt that having that announcement + Discussion + Book Club would have left the front page looking a tad too bloated. But it seems the site had other ideas about how things should play out, so here we are. Better late than never, right? SO. The book that we’re going to talk about this month is very well-known; given that it’s almost twenty years old and spent a lot of time on the Best Seller list, many of you have probably heard of it already. However, it’s striking how well it’s held up and how relevant it remains – many of the scenarios the author details are still happening every single day. The Gift of......

...household. Unlike dogs, cats do not bark or make other loud noises. Most cats don't even meow very often. They generally lead a quiet existence. Cats also don't often have "accidents." Mother cats train their kittens to use the litter box, and most cats will use it without fail from that time on. Even stray cats usually understand the concept when shown the box and will use it regularly. Cats do have claws, and owners must make provision for this. A tall scratching post in a favorite cat area of the house will often keep the cat content to leave the furniture alone. As a last resort, of course, cats can be de-clawed. Lastly, one of the most attractive features of cats as house pets is their ease of care. Cats do not have to be walked. They get plenty of exercise in the house as they play, and they do their business in the litter box. Cleaning a litter box is a quick, painless procedure. Cats also take care of their own grooming. Bathing a cat is almost never necessary because under ordinary circumstances cats clean themselves. Cats are more particular about personal cleanliness than people are. In addition, cats can be left home alone for a few hours without fear. Unlike some pets, most cats will not destroy the furnishings when left alone. They are content to go about their usual activities until their owners return. Cats are low maintenance, civilized companions. People who have small living quarters or less time for pet care should appreciate these characteristics of......

Lets Get Practical

...Lets Get Practical In today’s graduating high school class everyone thinks the same. They are required to do just about everything the same. Students are not taught to think outside the box. By the time they leave high school they are not an individual yet. Yes, they can write a paper but it isn't their own thought. Yes they can spend money, but do they know how to manage and save it. Because of the lack of outside world knowledge, high school should shift to a more practical and individualized curriculum. It would benefit the high school students to learn more practical things because, they need to learn the everyday tasks that are required as adults. When students graduate, most if not all do not know how to balance a checkbook, manage a bank account, or even know how to budget. They need to be taught how to resit the never ending urge to buy something they know they do not need. A money management class will teach them how to be responsible with their money and teach them the benefits of saving. If I had of learned these tools while in high school, I would most likely have a car and my license by mid summer. But because I lack in these traits I will have to save and wait until next march to drive. If they are taught these things they will not have to face the burden of feeling and being unprepared for life. By teaching them time management there would be fewer mistakes made. They would have the proper time to be able to process their thoughts, and write them down......
