Racism In Schools ~ Should We Be Discussing It?

Racism In Schools

Standard instruments of understanding and convenience seem to have disappeared. Who might imagine that in a loving, reflective democracy, we required a massive political mobilisation to inform the police and all citizens, of the plain fact that black lives matter? Who might imagine that when a police officer was questioned why he fired on an autistic man, who was sitting with his hands in the air telling officers not to shoot, he might say, I don’t know Violence between U.S. citizens of diverse races, backgrounds, sects, and political parties has risen to new heights. Social networking may have amplified toxic sentiment and fanned the fires of animosity further than in the past decades, but deep mistrust and disdain, and the failure to overcome these emotions in a respectful manner, did not begin with social media.

The Results Of Waking Up Early

A while ago I wrote an article on the supposed benefits of waking up early in the morning. I suspected I would end up being tired throughout the day and that the benefits would not be worth the negatives endured … however I was pleasantly surprised! In general it delivered on it’s promises of being more motivated to get things done with that fresh morning energy and as a result being more prepared for the day. There were also a few unexpected benefits: The first was catching the sunrise. In the last month being up early enough to catch the sunrise and the beautiful morning views has been an added benefit that I had definately not expected. A couple of days I have even been motivated enough by the orange and red skies to go for a casual morning stroll. Sometimes it’s nice to appreciate something beautiful for what it … Read more

Why Do Intelligent Students Fail And Does Failing Make You A Better Student?

Why Do Intelligent Students Fail And Does Failing Make You A Better Student?

In the short term failure has a strange effect; your natural instinct when you fail is to “abandon ship”. Your brain essentially tells you to give up and do whatever you want because you’ve already failed. It’s the same reason why when on a diet if you slip up and eat something unhealthy, instead of brushing it off and getting back on track, people generally tell themselves they’ve completely ruined their diet and then proceed to eat a whole bag of cookies!
