Education is not the amount of information that is put into the brain. If education was identical with information, then the dictionaries would be the greatest sages and the encyclopedias the greatest rishis. Education can be taken as our general conduct at home and in the society and the skills we possessed. If young generations are not made aware of the importance of culture, tradition, religion, then the material comforts may lure them and shatter peace, stability and faith that all of us cherish so much.
The purpose of education has varied from time to time, but the accent has always been on the full development of the human personality. The main purpose of education is to draw out our potential capabilities, to stir our imagination and to teach us how to think. We should be able to approach and examine a problem on our own, investigate it and take our decisions independently. Education equips people with the basic skills and knowledge necessary for jobs and occupations. On a higher level, education imparts technical and scientific knowledge and skills for industrial advancement. Japan realised this a long time ago and today it is the most developed country of the world. Other countries such as Singapore and Indonesia are also trying hard to become industrialise through education.
Besides imparting knowledge and skills for producing occupations, education develops a man’s character and induce in him qualities of discipline, tolerance, compassion, truthfulness, non-violence, justice, forgiveness and contentment. This is necessary for peace and harmony in our country. I think that moral education is the best too, against crime.
Education makes people more conscious of what goes on around them. This make them more critical and they are not easily swayed by emotions, therefore education is a long-term solution to problems of subversive forces.
Education is the best way to solve the problem of...
Potential negative tributary water quality effects (including turbidity, nutrients, and streamwater
temperature) resulting from forest management can be minimized or eliminated with proper road
location and maintenance and proper planning and supervision of silvicultural activities.
Stands developed through uneven-aged methods will continually include some younger, shorter
trees. Older trees in these stands develop stronger, more tapered stems than those grown in dense,
even-aged stands. Strongly tapered trees sustain less damage from wind, and the younger
component in uneven-aged stands enable them to recover from disturbance more quickly than
maturing even-aged stands, thus improving their relative long-term water quality protection.
Tree species growing on sites and within climatic ranges to which they are best adapted generally
will grow vigorously and persist longer, resulting in a watershed forest that requires less tending.
For example, white pine will grow vigorously but is more prone to root disease and wind throw
on wet sites, while red maple tolerates soil saturation and remains wind firm on the same sites.

...The morewe know others, the morewe know ourselves.
Within the lives of every individual there are groups of people who associate with them, who help to give them a deeper understanding of who they are. These groups can stem from friendships, hobbies, family, culture or even age. Some argue that it would be impractical to say that an individual gains and develops their identity through the actions and opinions of others. However, it is evident that without the presence of other people, one would not be able to form a complete sense of self. Others help a person discover their origins and heritage, as well as aid them in realising their own morals and desires, as well as being illustrations that show the difference and similarities between them and the individual in question. For these reasons, there can be no doubt that the more knowledge a person has about others, the more they understand their distinct self.
One group that every person shares a connection with is their family. Whether or not one agrees with them in regard to their opinions, actions or beliefs, they still play a significant part in forming identity. Gaining and understanding of one’s family and culture can help that person to discover their heritage. This can also grant a sense of individuality to those who feel too common or ‘plain’. In Growing up Asia in Australia, this issue is explored through...
...We Need More Women in Power
All the time women had been underestimated in societies. Their jobs were only to be a house wife. Also they were not allowed to be educated. In other words, they were convinced that this is men’s world. But in the last three decades, women have proven themselves that they have limited abilities in every field. Their achievements in business, politics and communities made people change their minds towards women. For this reason,we need more women in power to work and become leaders because they have equal skills just like men, as well as, working will bring up the strong capabilities of women.
First of all, to create a better world, societies need more women in higher positions because their abilities are just men. In the last three decades, their achievements have shown that they are smart, creative and ambitious as much as men. Moreover, their energies to compete men in workforce have almost succeeded. According to Luscombe(2013) from 1980 till 2012, women labor had increased rapidly, reaching 49% of the workforce, almost half of the workforce. In addition, women labor proved that they should be like men. They didn’t stop only demanding seats in workplaces; they also increased their salaries to near men’s salaries. According to Paramaguru(2013), a survey shows that women workers in the age of 25-34 are approximately getting paid like men. So women have always...
...Should we pay more attention to people who are older and more experienced than we are?
being older and more experienced indicates better mastery of handling problems. However, what matters in the advancement of the society is the power of the intellect and vision, not age. If anything, old people are more likely to be conservative, slow to recognize the merit of individual ideas. Finally, they are world in terms of hierarchies instead of individual aptitudes. On the contrary, young people have a major advantage of absorbing resourceful information openly and creating with passion. As a result, it’s not necessary for us teenagers to pay more attention to the elders, but important to be confident in our own ideas. The resistance that older coworkers and superiors showed Maxim Gorky when he was an adolescent serves as a poignant example.
Maxim Gorky, a Russian and Soviet author and political activist, was one of the most brilliant authors of the 20th century. Gorky didn’t live a happy childhood. After an attempt at suicide in December 1887, he travelled on foot across the Russian Empire for five years, changing jobs constantly. It was during this period that Gorky formed an interest in reading and made up his mind to become a writer. He managed to get some books to read in his very limited spare time under rather harsh conditions. This little after-hours hobby was...
...THE MOREWE HAVE THE MOREWE WANT
Nowadays we live in a society, which is obsessed with materialistic things. In supermarkets, shops, on the internet also almost everywhere we are surrounded with products which we could buy. Unfortunately people want more and more stuff and are not satisfied with what they have.
People have need to own more andmore things, because the society requisite it from us. The people around us push us to buy new things, to have stuff which we really do not need. So the cold truth is that we are competing with others. On the other side there is the media, who manipulates us and we do not even recognize it. The commercials always have effects on us and make us believe that we really need the product which they are selling. There are every year more and more shopping centers and they are every time bigger and bigger. Visiting shopping centres became a holiday or a relaxation or a plan for the weekend. Lot of women and even men became shopaholics and obsessed with all kind of products and stuff. Consequently is the money what we most need and want. Without money we cannot afford this things and this is why we want more and more money. The...
Essay Paper “We”
In the novel “We” there are certainly many areas to which one can compare conformity to society today. The most constant, in my opinion, prevalent idea in the novel is conformity which is one of the biggest problems of society. In a world so heavily concentrated on the media and government to feed us a script for everyday living it’s as if we are living a slightly comparable version of this novel. There are several examples shown throughout the novel that illustrate key points in which the life of the characters mimic what we (people of modern American society) go through.
Early on we learn that the daily routines of the “Digits” as they’re called are orchestrated to act, dress, and even have sex on the same accord. In the world we live in this can be seen as the daily hustle and bustle of waking up, getting the kids ready, going to work, coming home, paying bills and the cycle repeats itself pretty much every day. Sometimes it’s as if this routine is pre-planned, as in the novel because there is so much blocking a certain mental progression. From debt payments, to the news stations telling you that they’ve found genetically modified organisms injected in the foods of the local grocery stores, we are constantly in a state of captivity. The quote “…Those two in paradise, were given a choice: happiness without...
