People use his energy wisely.

Le 18 janvier 2018, 10:36 dans Humeurs 0

No matter what person can use his energy, if the start decision idea later, immediately in accordance with the decision goal step by step, don't make it spread out, so, they also have hope of success. However, they did not want to do that, and they wanted to learn a little, and to do so, they paid for the whole life, and nothing could succeed.
How let you how clever, let you have a genius, also let you think how great big ability, if do not concentrate, not on the basis of the original goals to fully occupied, no patience, so his ability, talent, wisdom will be useless.
Do you know why an experienced gardener would cut off the shoots of a plant?
To tell you the truth, it is necessary to make the tree grow fast, and the fruit grow very fat. Because of a bud branch, it is able to disperse the nutrient that absorbs the root, so that its energy cannot concentrate on the trunk and fruit. If he had not done so, he would have lost more than he had lost in the harvest.
Those who have the knowledge of the flower also often cut off their buds, leaving only one or two of them on the branches, and the buds which he has cut off, will they not open the beautiful flowers? No, it's not. Their purpose was to concentrate the nourishing materials on one or two of the buds that remained, and to make the future open, especially beautiful and beautiful.
How can we not grow like flowers? If we can concentrate on a particular cause, then, this career, it will be a very happy result.
People who are willing to concentrate and work hard, their future, do not know how much light. You don't want to think that a person can achieve many kinds of career at the same time, no matter how great a person is, he can never do it!
You want to be successful in a great cause, and you immediately eliminate all the small, ordinary, uncertain, and all the hope that is not right for you.
You need a pair of scissors, and be bold enough to cut off all of your energy. Even if what you do has achieved considerable success, you will have to sacrifice yourself. Otherwise, the future loss will be several times larger than it is now.
There are thousands of failures in the world, not because they have no talent, nor because they have no determination; It's because they don't focus.
Since they did not decide their ideas, they began to do it at once, and they collided with each other. Try this one; do it; Since they learn music, they want to know something about sports. At the same time, I want to do the real estate business, but also want to be a businessman.
This is not enough, to study the law, write some articles to contribute, and also learn to write literary works; He was also ready to be a teacher, and wanted to be a poet. They tried to spread their energies away, and they did not realize that if they could make up their minds and concentrate on one cause, he would be amazed at the results.


Youth is not a time of life, but a state of mind

Le 18 décembre 2017, 07:43 dans Humeurs 0

Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind. It is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees. It is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep spring of life.

  Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. This often exits in a man of 60, more than a boy of 20.nobody grows merely by the number of years; we grow old by deserting our ideas. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust1 bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.

  Whether 60 or 16, there is in every human being’s heart the lure of wonders, the unfailing childlike appetite of what’s next and the joy of the game of living. In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from infinite, so long as you are young.

  When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with the snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you’ve grown old, even at 20, but as long as your aerials are up, to catch waves of optimism, there’s hope you may die young at 80.


This Black History Month, let’s try teaching that racism is still with us

Le 23 novembre 2017, 09:37 dans 教育 0


If you’re a teacher wanting to mark Black History Month with a discussion of racism, what is the best way to go about it? A helpful start might be to look no further than the treatment of NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick or 102-cap former England player Eni Aluko.

Each October, here in the UK at least, Black History Month will mean that some schools, believing the inherent issues too sensitive to broach, will forgo mention of it altogether. Sadly, this will include schools where students are predominantly black. Still there will be others, both diverse and monocultural, where a celebration of this history will mean dusting off old displays about Martin Luther King and Mary Seacole. There will be a recognition that racism, a plague that has robbed us all of a richer understanding of black history, is a bad thing.

Perhaps in a bid to soothe worried young minds, all of this will be presented as an evil that happened long ago until people such as Rosa Parks refused to be treated as second class citizens. And the present, 2017, will appear as the realisation of the equality black people once dreamed of. End of story.

Except, of course, report after report tells us what we as black and minority ethnic people already know: that racism flourishes in our midst.

This is perhaps a better starting point into a discussion about racism for primary school children than the one attempted by a teacher in the London Borough of Newham last week. Possibly well meaning and definitely tactless, letters were sent home asking parents of a particular class to send their children to school dressed as slaves. All so that they could appear as singing – and most probably happy – slaves. Over 20% of Newham’s residents are black.

In a bid at verisimilitude, the letter requested that children “performing their Black History Month song” should not do so wearing “modern patterns or modern brand names” but instead appear in “dirty and worn out” clothing. Parents were kindly told that “it might be an idea not to wash these clothes and stain them with tea or coffee to look more authentic”. A helpful tip if ever there was one.

Incidents such as this will continue to occur, glitches in a system that persists in seeing black history as no more – minus the Egyptians – than the conquest of white Europeans over Africans.

It is a history, if done correctly, that should encompass teaching about African civilisations such as the Ife kingdom of Nigeria or Aksum in present day Eritrea, which existed and flourished well before European conquest. And it should include at least a few mentions of the varied resistance taken before the civil rights movement. As a young girl, I would have loved to have learned of the Amazons of Dahomey, an all-female military regiment who in 1890 started fighting French encroachment into present-day Benin.

We can teach our young people about black history, and make it something more than a history of passivity and victimhood. At the same time, we should see it as our responsibility, as their educators, to teach them that the legacies of those darker days remain with us today. Not all racists have shaved heads and an NF membership card, or pepper their speech with a liberal dose of the N- or P-word. Such honesty is necessary. If not, how else can their generation stand a fighting chance of discussing race in ways that are far more sophisticated than adults currently seem capable of?
