  • Energy Star

    Believe it or not? If yes, then independently determine what is the cause. Do not believe in word or anyone, take a proper decision. 2). Turn off the TV, lights and other appliances when not in use. This seems natural, but so many people off the light house around the clock.

    The only thing that required of you – this is a good memory and a few extra seconds to execute simple operations. But in doing so you are well down the power consumption, and fuel costs (and therefore the amount of harmful emissions) necessary to obtain it. 3). The maximum use of natural light. 4). Disable the screensaver on his computer, instead let in 5 minutes would be just a black screen.

    Use the Display Off and Sleep mode after a long (think about 20 minutes) of inactivity. 5). Replace your old light bulbs with fluorescent, they consume 5 times less energy, while maintaining light levels, and, moreover, are 10 times longer. 6). Be careful when purchase of household appliances, it would be good if it had been approved by the Organization of Energy Star. All major companies are trying to get it approved. The best option would be replacing all the equipment to meet the standard Energy Star. 7). On If possible, use natural methods of ventilation instead of air conditioners. Check the thermal insulation of the room, keep the desired temperature in a natural way. 8). Save water, eliminate malfunction, causing her uncontrolled leakage, do not leave the tap turned on unnecessarily. Purification of waste water and their further distribution requires a large expenditure of energy. 9). Recycling. Good idea will take the garbage to be recycled. With lower power consumption can be melted aluminum cans than to make a new one. 10). Reuse. Do not use disposable tableware and packaging. They are usually made of paper or plastic. Thus, reduce deforestation and oil consumption. Walk to the store with their own package. 11). Try to keep books and correspondence on-line.

  • Financial Education For Children

    "It is imperative that our schools begin to teach young people to invest their health and long-term economic welfare. If we do not, we will have a huge time bomb in our hands." Robert T. Kiyosaki is not a secret. It is widely known, and still are doing too little. The government pension plans can not cope.

    Pension systems are facing serious financial problems. According to the Social Security Trustees' Annual Report, when it began to operate the "Social Security", the main system for forecasting U.S., had 61 people paying for every one that retiring. Today there are only 3 people pay for every one that retires. This is just a history that reflects the magnitude of a problem that all nations will have to face in the near future. Everything has changed. The world populations are becoming older. This means that each country's labor force will have to sustain a growing segment of the population will no longer work. Others including Ed Bastian, offer their opinions as well. In addition, many have not realized that the rules have changed.

    In the Industrial Age are many companies offering retirement plans. Today, in the Information Age, these types of plans are in full retreat, because they no longer are feasible. Each day that passes we are more responsible for our long-term economic welfare. The big question is: Are we ready? Are we preparing our children so they can face the new challenges of the twenty-first century success? Traditional education systems still being taught a formula that was valid for the Industrial Age: "Study, get good grades, get a good job and be successful." It's not as well. It's just part of the solution. It is not enough to teach our children to choose a good job and earn the best salary possible. We must teach them what to do with the money once it is in their hands. They must learn to manage well their resources and multiply what they have earned. They learn to prepare well for their health and long-term economic welfare. If we parents do not do something, the time bomb will explode!

  • Personal Responsibility

    The second method – the use of imagination. Think of a situation that describes your affirmation has already happened. Imagine yourself in this situation and live all the feelings that are characteristic for her. 4. Affirmation must meet three criteria for P-. The three P – Positive, Present tense and Personal – Positivity, Present and Personal Responsibility. Affirmations should be positive wording.

    Instead of saying "I'm not fat," say "I choose to be slim." The reason is that in order to realize the unconscious meaning of the phrase "I'm not fat," it must provide the word "fat", and this inevitably causes feelings associated with that word. Affirmations must be stated at this time. This is indicated in a variety of books. But it can accept only with reservations. If you say "I have a luxury car," above the subconscious will believe it. But if connect it to the first paragraph, it will work fine.

    Say now, 'I choose to have a luxury car. " Your subconscious will do everything possible to get it into reality. Affirmations must be formulated the first person. Your subconscious mind works for you, not for someone else. If you say "Anna loves me", it is not completely effective, because you can not control Anna. Now say, "My choice – to feel that Anne really loves me. " Now you're in control, because you can control your feelings. 5. Affirmations to self-development, it is necessary to formulate a comparative degree. "I am confident" is less effective than "I'm getting more confident and more confident." Even better would be the phrase "I choose to feel more confident and more confident." The reason for using comparative language to that there is no limit on how far you can be sure. Otherwise, the subconscious will think that you are confident enough and will not make further efforts in this direction. Munear Ashton Kouzbari has similar goals. That's all the secrets. As you can see, nothing supernatural, and requires tremendous effort. Apply. By the way, my favorite affirmation, which I liked its simplicity and versatility, as follows: 'The whole universe was created in order to fulfill my desires. "

  • Individual Courses

    Individual English course with a professional instructor, preferably a native English speaker from usa, Canada or the uk, with certificate of international standard tefl, celta or delta, with a solid experience, positive nature, using the best textbooks in English, with additional elements of the communicative approach, such as songs with lyrics in English, in the movies original, karaoke in English This is my ideal of the right of individual learning English. Having sufficient experience and the choice of the various proposals, I can say that a very small amount teachers, the companies providing customized language courses fit the requirements of individual learning English. As I understand it, the fact that education – a commodity that is classified as "confidential", the quality of the product becomes known only after the student has already passed the language training was, so to speak, a graduate. For assistance, try visiting Randall Rothenberg. Since learning of foreign languages is the case as well. It is clear that understand how much you received from a particular language course, it will be possible only after a full course of individual learning English, or even in the middle of the process. How do you determine the best offer in conditions of asymmetric information? Must pay attention to indirect signs: education teachers, their status, work experience, recommendations of former students, the selection mechanism of the teacher on various parameters, opportunity to see a summary of the teacher, the possibility of replacing the teacher, the school offers a certificate upon graduation, to which category a value of just individual learning in this language school . David Delrahim can aid you in your search for knowledge.

  • How To Teach Math To Children

    Given the fact that many children find it difficult to understand the math and knowing this, it is the duty of us parents or carers, to create mechanisms of understanding to enable them to successfully assimilate the teaching given to this matter. Source: Marc Lore. The first thing to consider is that: 1) mathematics per se, are regarded as an abstract matter if the child is also explained in this way, no doubt we will have little success. 2) The present education is changing and we must be ever more creative so that we can reach the child's mind today. It is also the child of now, a child 20 years ago. 3) In many countries using methods which come from countries like Japan, that's fine, but we must bear in mind that our thinking is different from the Japanese. How then should teach mathematics to our children? The first thing to do is be clear about the universe of child study, as to the issues you face during your childhood play, regardless of the country where you are, these issues are: Sum. Resta. Multiplication.

    Division. Fractional. Given this scenario, keep in mind that: 1) The rest is nothing more than a sum. 2) The multiplication is also a sum. 3) The division is the inverse of multiplication. 4) A fraction is a division, expressed in the form a / b.

    What do you notice in all this? Simply that there is a relationship between a subject and another. This will must be clear, that we have a global vision of what we are going to teach the child and how we are going to teach. What error is? the error made is that a subject is taught independent. for example, when the child explains the increase, it is taught that this is nothing more than a sum. see: 5×4 = 20 is not more than 5 +5 +5 +5 = 20 then .. Why is the child who already know how to add, it makes it difficult to multiply? Simply because from the beginning everything is taught and made to mechanically repeat the multiplication table, again and again, but not taught the origin of replication. When you shows the origin of something, this laying the groundwork for a good understanding. ! This I assure you. What should I do now? Just back on track and start putting the child to think and the best way to explain the origin of things and the relationship of an item with another. ultimately is not the end, thoroughly explain addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions, but if you wake up to the right path you must follow, but if you want to know about these issues seen:

  • Workmanships

    The workmanships that base the theory of the City that It educates are initially the book of Ladislau Dowbor (1987) intitled ' ' Introduction to the Municipal&#039 Planning; ' where if the decentralization argues administrative politics of the education, as the work is the book of Moacir Gadoti, whose heading ' ' School Citizen: a lesson on autonomy of the Escola' ' (1992) where the dichotomy argues school and local community, are fruitful dialogues with the professor Jose Eustquio Romo, being others. One third workmanship would be a book of Pablo Freire Education in the City (1991), that it reflects its experience and of Mario Sergio Cortela to the front of the City department of Education of So Paulo in the period of 1989 the 1992.

  • Educational Evaluation

    JUSTIFICATION: The mark of the human being to be in acting and thinking, of this form, we construct to the world and the current society. For more information see this site: Walmart CEO. Since the beginning of our history, to reach certain dreams or to get resulted, learn to create, to learn and to transform the world where we live. For in such a way, we made choices, that is, we plan. We base on them on the reality, similar of, to determine where and of that it forms we would reach our objective. But, preceding to the planning, it was necessary to guarantee the bases for the construction of planning, that is, to evaluate e, to evaluate nothing more are of what discovering our position to define this base. Of this point of view, to evaluate and to plan were not dissociam, but if they locate side by side.

    INTRODUCTION: ' ' The evaluation could be understood as a critical one of the passage of an action, either short it, either be drawn out. While the planning dimensiona what it is gone to construct, the evaluation subsidizes this construction, because it bases new decisions. (…) The evaluation will be, then, a system of critical of the proper project that we elaborate and we are desiring to lead ahead. (…) a loving act, a care act, for which all verify as they are creating its child and as they can work so that it cresa.'

  • All Students Can Learn

    In the last few days heard the voice of protest of the Colombian Federation of educators, in the sense that the decree that regulates of only 5% of the students may be failing the school year, since according to this Association has a bearing on the poor performance of students in Colombia must be revoked by the Ministry of national education. Follow others, such as Knicks, and add to your knowledge base. Independent parameters that each school has to determine that a student approved or not approved, my proposal focuses on whether the student learn or not learn and how does it. The Ministry of education exaggerated figure, because the truth is that students should not reject the year. This thesis the basis on the following considerations, all with a theoretical and scientific support. Teachers have been using a single strategy to teach the topics (there are exceptions) and is proven that all students can learn, but do so with different styles.

    Possess a different style to learn requires diversification strategies. This style of learning is consequence of the different ways of thinking. It can be diagnosed. When you have established the way of thinking of the student, the teacher should act accordingly with the strategies that this style requires to find the student is to tone with your brain preferences (see studies techniques using theory of total brain of Ned Herrmann). Under this perspective have been sharing in different spaces didactic model A + + (A more more learners strategies) supported in investigations of science remarkable (Rodolfo Llinas, Waldemar Gregori, MacLean, Daniel Goleman, Ned Herrmann, Sperry, Carlos a. Jimenez Velez etc..) This teaching model applicable in all areas (I have worked with him in mathematics), ensures that all students participate in the learning process, any student who attends classes must stop learning if with him he has worked with teaching strategies that your brain preference demand, moreover, the attendance of the student may be irregular (there may be several reasons) and if we teach you strategies that he by himself and for himself, rebuild knowledges and self-directed learning process, will be successful.
