everybody is so different. How can you know what is amusing to others?j An astute American educator, Horace Mann, once stated, “A human being is not attaining his full heights until he is educated.” Education is the key to opening the ever-binding chain lock that is life. With the U.S. economy in turmoil, a high school diploma will not suffice to gain entry into the competitive workforce. Education is the guiding light to achieve one’s true potential. Therefore, I wish to continue my education throughout college and obtain my higher order degrees. the victim’s nervous system. Over time, the victim’s speech, hearing, walking, immune system, and mental capabilities drastically deteriorates. Unfortunately, there is no cure for Multiple Sclerosis. As a young boy still maturing, I was forced to take care of my ailing mother alone. Throughout this turbulent time, I still managed to focus my attention on achieving my goals in school.
My arduous family experiences motivate me to achieve academic excellence in school. At a very young age, I saw my mother struggle to survive, yet she still made sure that I was well taken care of. As I have grown, I have noticed a depletion in the amount of positive African American male role models in our community. Several of our males are either missing, in prison, or irresponsible, negative role models for our youth. With this stated, I will become a positive, strong male educator. I will major in Social Studies education at the University of Georgia. After receiving my undergraduate

Education is important
Right from when an infant
Education is not about college
It entails a wider range of knowledge
Supplying a market of skills shortage
Education is great
It creates and decides upon ones fate
Never leave it too late
Education makes it a priority
To provide you with opportunities
So I say
OK! Up! Education
Feed the Nations
Up!EducationEducation is in abundance
A constituent of importance
As we humans advance
It offers us life’s insurance
Education is the key to set you free
From joblessness condemnation
Education is the key to flee
From endless financial frustration
Education provides you with ammunition
To tackle any country, state or nation
Education gives you immunisation
Against surviving global frustration
Education relieves you
From absurd ignorance
Education exempts you and me
From parental allowance
For most adults
It is usually a concerning disturbance
So I say
OK! Up! Education
Feed the Nations
I take my time to stress once more
It is the path to successes door
Education is a treasure
One cannot significantly measure
By only your life’s attended lectures
Education is power

Why is college important to me?
I often dream about becoming a successful business owner of my own restaurant “T. C’s Jamaican Restaurant, but to attain this goal I must acquire a college education that teaches me how to become the best manager in that industry.
Education is important to me because coming from a family of 8 in Jamaica, I was the only one who went to college and for my brothers and sisters to see that I could reach my goal in life sets a higher standard for them.
Another reason it is important is it opens my eyes to see a better future and quality of life for those around me. Seeing that I can help my family in Jamaica, especially my mom out of poverty and not be ashamed of where we lived anymore. My mom was my motivation in life to become the person that I am right now, and to see that I have exceeded that and more, motivates me to push even harder.
I hope that I have motivated my daughter to do that same to go after her dreams and never give up like how my mother did for me.
A college education helped me to gain the knowledge of the world around me, it showed me how to live a better life and how to become a mature adult who looks and plans towards the future. How to get things done the correct way by following the correct procedures and policies in everything. In Jamaica and in the United States the laws are totally different, so with me attaining my studies in the...

Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.

Libraries are useful resources for adult learners.
Adult education is the practice of teaching and educating adults. Adult education takes place in the workplace, through "extension" school (e.g. Harvard Extension) or "school of continuing education" (Columbia School of Continuing Education). Other learning places include community colleges, folk high schools, colleges and universities, libraries, and lifelong learning centers. The practice is also often referred to as "Training and Development" and is often associated with workforce or professional development. It has also been referred to as andragogy (to distinguish it from pedagogy). Adult education is different from vocational education, which is mostly workplace-based for skill improvement; and also from...
...An important question regarding people today, from the ages of 9 to 90 is why is physical educationimportant? Physical education is important for a number of reasons, one of the biggest reasons being that if someone is physical fit and participates in physical activity daily, the chances are, their going to live a longer, healthier life than one who is not physical fit and does not participate in physical activity on a daily basis. Another big reason is physical education and athletics help define a person and shape them and people can learn a lot about themselves by participating in activities, such as how well they handle situations, anger problems, and maturity.

Breast Cancer has been around since the beginning of times. It is noted that the earliest recordings were date back to Ancient Greece and Egypt around the year 460 B.C., when Hippocrates depicted it as humorol disease. He proposed the Human Body was made up of four humors (phlegm, black bile, yellow bile, and blood). He then premised that cancer was caused due to the overabundance of black bile. This idea of breast cancer was believed until about
the 17th century when a physician by the name of Francois de la Boe Sylvius began to dispute the humorol theory of Cancer. He stated that Cancer was caused not by an excess of black bile, but from a chemical process which transformed lymphatic fluids from acidic to acrid.
In America, as of 2012, 1 in every 8 woman will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime. While for men on the other hand their chances are a lot slimmer, 1/10 of 1%, (one in 1,000). Among women breast cancer is the second highest cancerous cause of death behind only lung cancer, but is second most diagnosed cancer behind skin. Most women believe they are risk free due to the lack of family history with the disease, but this is not the case. Statistics show that about 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer.
Breast cancer is commonly not noticed till after symptoms arise, although most women in the early stages have no...

Gutting discovers in a “pew research survey this year found that 74 percent of graduates from four year colleges say that their education was “very useful in helping them grow intellectually “. 69 percent said that it was very useful in helping them grow and mature as a person and 55 percent claimed that “ it was very useful in helping them prepare for a job or career “. Moreover, 86 percent of these graduates think “college has been a good investment for them personally.” (627) . I was taken back when I found out that only 55 percent of people said that it was beneficiary to them in terms of preparing them for a career. Most of them thought that it was useful to them personally. Being satisfied personally however, doesn’t help pay the bills, or put food in...
