Often when you speak to older adults they will tell you the school days were the best days of your life, this is not because the school days were the best of their lives, simply that they were conditioned into believing this. No adult can honestly believe that the best days of their lives were when they were treated with little or no respect, or when they were beaten with a slipper for speaking out of turn. If they truly believed that school days were so good then why did most of them leave school at 16?

Fortunately today teachers don't beat us with old slippers of canes but does that really make school a better environment for the student?
Well the most you could say is that it's an improvement. The fact is that the school environment is an unhealthy one; everyday you're faced with the same old routine, and even worse the same people.

During your younger teenage years in the lower part of the school we are all faced with a huge task, not learning about algebra or
Shakespeare, but the ultimately more important lesson of learning who we are, and who we want to be. So during these turbulent years we are not placed in a constructive, and helpful environment, we are forced into a volatile environment where the minority are bullied and the majority are too afraid to be different, we are surrounded by social stereotypes, greebos, skaters, townies goths, etc. The only way to truly be an individual is to shun other people's opinions of you and be yourself but this can be difficult when they surround you. Bullies often unfairly target those with learning difficulties, and we all soon learn that teachers and parents can't really do much to help, we are told over and over again to "just ignore them" or "try to stay out of the way" But it's hard to stay out of the way of someone if you have to be in their class or form.…...

...Bradford 4 Legalizing Marijuana well from his condition. I wonder if it’s true that if you stop using a drug that your body is immune to that you go through different stages. Not only you will start getting healthy but at the same time your body start going through witdrawls. Like what Tommy Chong is going through when he was in jail. A lot of people is on drugs, but the most addictive drug out there is pills that are legal, that are prescribe to us. So many people are on pills in this world. Marijuana helps post-traumatic stress disorder and that is a good thing. You don’t know what people go through in life. And it controls nausea, vomiting, and weight gain. It has been time when I was sick and I smoke to relieve the pain and it works. Weed doesn’t causes lung cancer but cigarettes do. It makes you fall asleep and get a lot of rest to get your strength back. The vomiting part I don’t know myself, maybe it helps you vomit. The reason we vomit is to get the poison out of our body. I know after I vomit, I feel a lot better. But most of the time I vomit after excessively drinking too much. Gaining weight, I can believe that you get the munchies after you smoke. I mean you be so hungry that you don’t want to share your snacks or food. I remember one time, I smoke so much that I came home and had two to three plates of food. I think we should give marijuana to those who try to starve their selves. After you put marijuana in their system, trust me they will eat.......

Alternative Schools Are a Better Choice for Students

...Alternative Schools are a Better Choice for Students Christy Price AIU Online Alternative Schools are a Better Choice for Students What are alternative schools? Alternative schools according to the World Book Encyclopedia (2003) are, “… any public or private school that differs from traditional schools in curriculum, purpose, or teaching methods.” The definition comes from the 1960’s when free schools were created and contained smaller groups of students and teachers. During this time the general consensus was, kids would learn at their own pace and teachers were not meant to be viewed as authority figures but should be mentors to the students under their care. In comparison to public schools, which were seen as oppressive, free schools were a suitable alternative for many students (Miller 2002) For some students alternative high schools are the better choice for their education. Students who attend alternative schools do not lack the ability to learn they just have different learning needs than other students. According to the Waterville Alternative School (2003), located in Waterville Maine, public schools are created on a “one size fits all” basis. That is, there is one set curriculum, schedule, and teaching style. Each student is expected to learn at the same pace; however, this is not the reality. Thus, alternative schools have been created as a way to meet each student’s individual needs. Alternative schools are appealing to some students for a number of......

...In order for computers, printers, etc. to communicate with each other on a network, each must have a different IP address. To make remembering these easier, the Domain Name System (DNS) translates these numeric IP addresses into names and web addresses that humans can actually decipher and remember. Instead of remembering one of the five numeric IP addresses to find, you type in the address as and DNS will go find the page you are looking for. DNS is most commonly used for internet purposes, but private networks use DNS for other reasons as well. It works throughout multiple computers or databases. It can handle many types of name resolution requirements. With DNS the host name will stay the same even though the numerical IP address may be changing. With all of the ways that DNS makes our lives easier in regards to networking, be that private networking or the internet, the overhead and IT management aspect of DNS are well worth it. I can’t imagine the headache of not having it in place. DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) assigns IP addresses on the network. It provides the default gateway, subnet mask, and the DNS. Instead of IT administrators having to manually hand out static IP addresses and keeping track of all of them, DHCP takes care of it for them. Along with assigning them, DHCP will take back the IP address when it is no longer in use and reassign it when it is available. With that being said, yes, DHCP saves headaches as......

...corporate strategy (M.E.Porter, Competitive Strategy: Techniques for Analyzing Industries and Competitors, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1980). Successful firms, he contended, have to guard against the activities of existing rivals, buyers, suppliers, new entrants, and potential providers of substitute products. They must, furthermore, acquire a position within each industry where they gain the greatest profit from the value added to a product as it goes through each process stage to reach the consumer. They must adopt strategies of price competitiveness, product differentiation, or the application of either in specialist markets, and so gain the necessary competitive advantage over rivals and an effective barrier against market entry. Porter’s work was distinguished by a rigorous analytical framework and detailed investigation of various competitive scenarios. [pic] His reputation was enhanced by Competitive Advantage, which appeared in 1985, and it expounded further on the three strategies of price, differentiation and focus (M.E.Porter, Competitive Advantage: Creating and Sustaining Superior Performance, New York, 1985). It discussed in addition the ability to sustain a competitive advantage. His description of the value-chain was a useful conceptual advance. All firms engage in the primary activities of inbound logistics, operations, outbound logistics, marketing and sales, and in secondary activities such as management, technological upgrading, or accounting. Each firm is......

Effects of Work Choices and Fair Work

...The main areas of the Work Choice legislation included offering employers greater flexibility in the terms and conditions on which they can employ workers, workplace agreements underpinned by statutory minimum conditions rather than awards; reducing the role played by the Australian Industrial Relations Commission (AIRC) in determining employment conditions and resolving industrial disputes ; making it more difficult for unions to enter workplaces or organise industrial action and reducing the exposure of employers to unfair dismissal claims (Unknown 2007). On the other hand the new Fair Work legislation, Fair Work Australia (FWA) assumes all remaining functions of the AIRC and the Registry, it introduces modern awards and the new National Employment Standards (NES), the better off overall test replaces the no-disadvantage test for assessing enterprise agreements made, applications for approval of enterprise agreements must be lodged with FWA within 14 days of the agreement being made and lastly, there are no longer any legislative provisions for the making of individual agreements.(Fair work Aust. 2010) In my opinion, the effect of these changes would impact firstly on the demand for labour. There are 3 determinants of the demand for labour; the wage rate, the productivity of labour and the demand for the good.The wage rate determines the position on the demand curve (Sloman, Norris, Garratt 2010). For instance, if the Fair Works minimum awards are higher than the......

School Work has increased management in supply chains and reducing inventory through better scheduling, information sharing, and increased interaction with firms down the supply chain. Web based shopping increases the consumer’s ability to buy goods and services, price shopping, and increased outreach to larger groups. This would be the example of combining all markets in what is known as the perfect competition. This includes an excess of buyers and sellers working together with what some would consider perfect information. Producers not using web based technology may not see this as productive but in the long run there are increases in price transparencies and continued global efficiency. The last reinforcement would be increasing choice and convenience by increasing retail competition and productivity. Internet retails may become more like each other but the use of warehouses and distribution centers increases sales for those whose business run primarily through catalogues and online sales. In conclusion the internet has the potential to enhance productivity, produce lower prices, and enhance growth in living standards. “In our highly and increasingly competitive market, most temporary market advantages, reflected in high profit margins, get eliminated as competition drives prices toward marginal costs (Economy, 2012).” It is not safe to say the internet will help the competitive market but this answer lies in the organizations ability to incorporate......
