It's the times we're so crazy, that people think we're high.
It's the times we laugh so hard, we can't help but cry.
It's all the inside jokes and "remember whens". those are all the reasons that we're best friends!

“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.”
― Margaret Mead tags: children, education, judgement, mentoring, reasoning
1270 likes like “Ideally, what should be said to every child, repeatedly, throughout his or her school life is something like this: 'You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be. You are being taught by people who have been able to accommodate themselves to a regime of thought laid down by their predecessors. It is a self-perpetuating system. Those of you who are more robust and individual than others will be encouraged to leave and find ways of educating yourself — educating your own judgements. Those that stay must remember, always, and all the time, that they are being moulded and patterned to fit into the narrow and particular needs of this particular society.”

We have all heard that no two snowflakes are alike. Each snowflake takes the perfect form for the maximum efficiency and effectiveness for its journey. And while the universal force of gravity gives them a shared destination, the expansive space in the air gives each snowflake the opportunity to take their own path. They are on the same journey, but each takes a different path.
Along this gravity-driven journey, some snowflakes collide and damage each other, some collide and join together, some are influenced by wind... there are so many transitions and changes that take place along the journey of the snowflake. But, no matter what the transition, the snowflake always finds itself perfectly shaped for its journey.
I find parallels in nature to be a beautiful reflection of grand orchestration. One of these parallels is of snowflakes and us. We, too, are all headed in the same direction. We are being driven by a universal force to the same destination. We are all individuals taking different journeys and along our journey, we sometimes bump into each other, we cross paths, we become altered... we take different physical forms. But at all times we too are 100% perfectly imperfect. At every given moment we are absolutely perfect for what is required for our journey. I’m not perfect for your journey and you’re not perfect for my journey, but I’m perfect for my journey and you’re perfect for your journey. We’re heading to the same place, we’re taking different routes, but we’re both exactly perfect the way we are.
Think of what understanding this great orchestration could mean for relationships. Imagine interacting with others knowing that they too each share this parallel with the snowflake. Like you, they are headed to the same place and no matter what they may appear like to you, they have taken the perfect form for their journey. How strong our relationships would be if we could see and respect that we are all perfectly imperfect for our journey.”

We can only fly with two wings and two wings can only stay in the air if there is a balance. Two beautiful wings is perfection. There is a generation of people who idealize perfection as the existence of only one of these wings every time. But I see that a bird with one wing is imperfect. An angel with one wing is imperfect. A butterfly with one wing is dead. So this generation of people strive to always cut off the other wing in the hopes of embodying their ideal of perfection, and in doing so, have created a crippled race.”

...thinking of what is life, why we have been here on this earth and what is the purpose of life? As most of you I believe, during my whole life I have been thinking of these questions and have never been able to come across the right answer for this. A poor man is always worried about feeding himself and his family. The middle class people are always worried about arranging basic comforts of life that covers house, car, clothing etc. The upper class of the society is worried about the amount of wealth they are accumulating and the power they have in their hands. You take the case of any one of these and wonder why are we doing this. I partially support the poor class because food is something we cannot avoid in our lives. But how about the others? What are they running after? Atleast I have never been able to support the answer on this. Some may argue and I do partially agree that we do need to something to live this life. But the fact that upsets me the most is what we are doing is really that which we are supposed to do on this earth. Every religion on this earth in one form or the other guides us to do our work and perform duties and leave rest to the God. But, what kind of duties and why do those? Human thinking has been made narrow to the extent that we always think about future and desperately work, always think and devote our life to future. But what future is? It is nothing but death. Then why are we running after future. Why cannot we live in present? Life is......

...relation to the financial aspect of capital punishment because Freedman talks about how much more the death penalty costs than life imprisonment. He says, “In Florida, each execution costs $3,200,000, six times the expense of life imprisonment” (141). The workingman would probably be amazed at how much the execution actually costs compared to how much life imprisonment costs. The workingman would probably wonder why the death penalty is even sought when life imprisonment seems to accomplish the same goal for much less money. The working man would also probably agree with Freedman because the workingman would rather see his tax money spent on more productive programs. Freedman says, “The reality is that, in a time of fixed or declining budgets, those dollars are taken away from a range of programs that would be beneficial” (142). The workingman would add that with the government taking so much of his income in taxes, it could at least do something more productive than killing people. A working man would probably be upset at how much money is spent on just trying a person in a capital punishment case. Freedman says, “Thus, the taxpayers foot the bill for all the extra costs of capital pretrial and trial proceedings and then must pay either for incarcerating the prisoner for life or the expenses of a retrial, which itself often leads to a life sentence” (142). The workingman would be upset because not only is the government using his money to try these criminals, but......

...Playing Hide and Seek with My Future Dreaming can take you to wonderful places. At least that was what my father told me. Eight years ago, while I sat in my room, chin on my folded up knees, I asked myself what exactly I wanted to be when I grew up. As usual, my brain came up with billions of seemingly brilliant ideas; I could be a journalist, or better yet a news host, I could be an actor, or maybe even a politician, I could be a business woman, or I could just be the doctor my parents wanted me to be. Everything came to a screeching halt. A doctor; it is what almost every parent wants for their child. They would have knowledge that their child could save people’s lives, would be making money that could help those without healthcare, and even have the status of an intelligent individual who has done well for themselves; the doctor that would be the pride of the family. Nine year-old me breathed out a sigh. All the things I wanted to become, all the things I wanted to do, none of them seemed conceivable, or rather, none of them seemed conceivable to my dad. A doctor was what he wanted me to be; and a doctor was what I didn’t want to be. Having high hopes for his children wasn’t wrong of my dad. I understood that he had dreams once too. He never talked about his life before coming to America and even after putting together all the pieces, all the hints, I only came up with the bare minimum, if even that. Dad lost both his parents while growing up in the country sides...

...One area that stands out from the rest that will revolutionize organizations from an Information Technology perspective will be the use of software-defined networks or software-based networks will be used in the near future. As network infrastructures become more and more complex we will have the need to better manage the infrastructure as well. The software-based networks will be created to manage the large heterogeneous equipment that make of the infrastructure in the environment. In essence the network infrastructure will be managed by software, another way of looking at this is the network infrastructure will have an operating system to manage the resources similar to a desktop operating system manages a local systems resources today. For example with the software you will have the ability manage and program the routers and switches within your environment without accessing the components in question directly to program or manage them (Linke, 2012). This is completed by utilizing the software-defined network to separate the router and switches from their hardware and to be programmed and managed by a software-defined network controller (Linke, 2012). The shift to the environment by utilizing a software-defined network will impact the network infrastructure area moving forward by having much more granular control and management of the network devices that make up the enterprise network infrastructure. Let’s discuss the details of how the software-defined network......

...grave to us, yet if we were to possibly use wisdom, we may miss the pitfall all together. The wisdom of learning from the past, of individually taking control, making a change and not relying on the powers that be, is one strategy. “Makes me wonder if all the wisdom was given to King Solomon and none left for us”, but even he faltered. So then it begs to say is there any purpose, reason or hope. Do we just literally exist and go round on a cog wheel of time. Without straying too far from the point, there is allot of room left for speculation as to whether some of these conspiracy ideas are true. Were we just put here and are aimlessly wondering this planet. While I was doing this piece it brought up allot of question about the past, future, who we are, why we are here? How our world/universe came to be? Is this all about balance and not right or wrong? TECHNOLOGY seems to be our vice, we are moving very rapidly towards an I.ROBOT society where we become so reliant on technology, we become the vegetable scientist of the past predicted. We no longer seem to live in natural time and with nature. The sculpture is a representation of the state we are partially in and on our way to.

...The Future -Social and cultural changes in human values and norms of behavior in businesses I think that first of all what we call a future could be happening in the next coming years or decades, since new types of technology and crazy touch-screen or laser objects are being used every day in our daily lives, even worst by children about 5 or 6 years old. Technology is not the only thing that has changed and is changing every day, something that we should really worry about is our own human values. This is our own social and cultural values, everything we have had since the moment we are born and also our norms in daily business that have been established year and years ago based on errors and important historical events, and by important business man and multinationals that had gave us the opportunity to experience what we are experiencing today. To answer the million dollar question we need to break it down into two separate parts; social and cultural changes; and norms of behavior in the world of business. The question is how these two factors will change in the future and how businesses will be done by that time. First, we need to determine our social and cultural values and those can be referred or seen as our ethical actions, and are our base of integrity in society. The way we think, act, behave, from a greeting to an interview or negotiation, these values or personal beliefs are definitely changing and even becoming extinct. Our values is the most fundamental......

...What is the difference between forward and futures contracts? Fundamentally, forward and futures contracts have the same function: both types of contracts allow people to buy or sell a specific type of asset at a specific time at a given price. However, it is in the specific details that these contracts differ. First of all, futures contracts are exchangetraded and, therefore, are standardized contracts. Forward contracts, on the other hand, are private agreements between two parties and are not as rigid in their stated terms and conditions. Because forward contracts are private agreements, there is always a chance that a party may default on its side of the agreement. Futures contracts have clearing houses that guarantee the transactions, which drastically lowers the probability of default to almost never. Secondly, the specific details concerning settlement and delivery are quite distinct. For forward contracts, settlement of the contract occurs at the end of the contract. Futures contracts are marked-to-market daily, which means that daily changes are settled day by day until the end of the contract. Furthermore, settlement for futures contracts can occur over a range of dates. Forward contracts, on the other hand, only possess one settlement date. Lastly, because futures contracts are quite frequently employed by speculators, who bet on the direction in which an asset's price will move, they are usually closed out prior to maturity and delivery usually never happens.

The Future of Life Rhetorical Essay

...In his book, The Future of Life, aimed at those with opposing attitudes about environmentalism, Edward O. Wilson presents two exaggerated accounts of the accusations used from both perspectives by “environmental wackos” and “sagebrush rebels” towards each other. Wilson conveys his purpose to illustrate the unproductive nature of such discussions used to denounce the opposing groups by using satire. The two accounts are very similar in structure. Inversion is used in the two titles, “The People-First Critic Stereotypes The Environmentalists” and “The Environmentalist Stereotypes The People-First Critic”, alluding to the similarity of the arguments presented in the two passages. The first few lines of each passage are dedicated to name-calling and revealing the other side’s intentions and agendas, which both consist of gaining political power. The invective used attacks on both sides, almost making the passage a diatribe. This can be seen in situations whereby the environmentalists call the conservatives “worst bunch of hypocrites”, while the opposing side repeatedly calls the environmentalists “wackos”. Regardless of the right or the left wing, each passage accuses the other of having a “hidden agenda”. Another rhetorical device used by Wilson to reveal the uselessness of the arguments is bathos; towards the end of the first passage, property owners are exalted people who “know their own land”, are caring towards animals and plants, and are the “real grass roots” of the......

...I wish could look into the future! I don’t think I would wish to see the future, what would the fun be in that. If I could see the future there would be now meaning in living, because I would already know what would happen to me. Also I knew that something bad would happen to me and I couldn’t do anything about it, I would go insane. So I don’t understand why people can wish for it. On the other hand it is tempted to know if you get the dream job you always had dreamed of. If I would or demand to look into the future but I could choose what I would see I would probably chose to see if I got married, not who I would marry for that should be a secret for me. I would also like to see if I got a good job which doesn’t make me miserable. That would be that, there are no other things that I would like to see, for like in the movies, you can’t change the future it will always end up biting you in the butt. That’s also why I don’t want to see the future that includes me. But if I could see the future itself, like if the planet still is here in 50 years or if there comes a war. Still I think we should let the future be and just live in the present, then the future will come....

Thus it becomes a shield against the vicious effects of globalization. Of course, all of these have as a result the increase of the effectiveness of the international economic activities. 2) The introduction of "thresholds" of risk: Country risk is a useful criterion for the foreign affairs when establishing the optimal level of the investment, for the credit or for purchase of financial products, but the main disadvantage is represented by the relativity of the score assigned to quantitative factors and particularly to the political environment. This is because future developments are expected and the anticipation accuracy depends on access to information sources, relevance of data used and the level of training of those involved. 3) Rating is used in setting prices for external loans and for speculative spreads titles. Because it acts as a ceiling on the corporate rating, indirectly it influences the ability of financing by external loans and implicitly, their profitability. Thus, access to international financial markets is granted only to good rated entities (national governments or firms), whereas for others, the cost of indebtedness is very high. Although metaphorical, highly suggestive seems in this sense the words "bankers give you the umbrella when the sun comes out and they take it......

How Education Will Enhance Future Goals in Life

...Southeastern Council on Military Education “How will my education enhance my future goals in life?” Submitted by Ellis Agee Jr. SSgt/USMC University of Maryland University College From the time that I could understand the English language, I have always remembered hearing in one way or another about the benefits of education on one’s life. Whether it have been watching a Hooked on Phonics commercial, playing with letter/number blocks or watching reading rainbow or Sesame Street on television, it seems like the basis has always been on the importance of learning new things. Virtually every job I have ever held or position I have worked in, required some form of education to complete the task. Whether this requirement was a high school diploma, in the case of military enlistment or on-the-job training on how to complete administrative tasks as a brand new Marine, education has always been of the utmost importance. According to Achieve Inc. (2012) Jobs that required limited skills--but still paid a family-supporting wage--have disappeared and increasingly have been replaced with jobs that require higher levels of education. The reality is that high school graduates that lack additional education/training face mostly dim and dead-end career prospects. Prospects are much dimmer for those who fail to finish high school at all. From my experiences thus far, I have seen first-hand just how essential education is for all people. As a Marine Corps recruiter......

Future Life with Toys

...From: Zeng Yu To: JoAnna Murphy Date: 2/11/15 Subject: Children’s toy Future Life with Toys Tags: Toy, Gender Stereotype Above picture comes from Liuyuhen’s tumblr. This is a typical gender stereotype for children’s toy. Girl will get dolls or anything that female should have. And boy will get cars or anything can represent muscling. Color of the toy is also different for each gender. Girl normally will get toy that is pink, red or purple. Boy will get toy that is black, blue or grey. This social construct norm create stereotype for two genders and potentially affect children’s future career. The difference between two genders’ toy reflect adults’ expectation for their children. Women are assumed to do in-house work or light work such as baby sitting, housekeeping and supporting work (like nurse). Men are assumed to do out-house work or heavy work such as joining army, constructing and political work. When children receive their toys, the toy will represent their future expectation from their parents. When children grow up with these stereotypes and expectations, they might have subconscious feeling about what they should behave or what they should do in order to fit these social construct norm. Some opponents might argue that when children getting older and have their own independent consciousness, this doesn’t necessarily mean they grow up to be in-house worker or out-house worker. However, several studies are showing that toy could affect children’s career.......
