This is a general education post on how students can use their "individual differences" in the classroom to understand subjects clearly. There are four proposals on how individual differences should be used in a classroom environment, and this post is dedicated to merging the theory of "multiple intelligences" into the four proposals. Disclaimer: this post…

Alfred Leslie Rowse, oftentimes shortened to A. L. Rowse, is best known for his work on England under Queen Elizabeth I’s reign as monarch. He was born on December 4th, 1903, in Cornwall. Mr. Rowse is the perfect example of a man of greatness born against all odds, as both his mother and father lived…

To be a successful substitute teacher, one must be able to understand how to balance information alongside reason. One main problem is that in the state of Florida, a part-time substitute teacher only needs an Associate’s Degree. The state tends to keep substitute teachers on a completely different standard of education than the so-called standard ones.…

Mrs. Marva Collins, a full-time substitute teacher in the “ghettos” of mid-1970s Chicago, found herself in a rather difficult decision when it came to how she could run her class. With rowdiness and pseudo-fights occurring in the hallways before the two minute and fifty second mark was even past, it’s obvious that the learning environment…

If you're in the public education system, then you've heard about (or have been forced to use) Kagan activities like Bloom’s Taxonomy Questions and the Fan-n-Pick Strategy – two methods to incite engagement through knowledge-based questions that we'll be talking about today. I personally have a bias against Kaganist (clever pun, please love it) activities, but…

Conservatism is at it again with attempts to destroy the public education system. At this point, it is almost certain that Betsy DeVos - the multi-billionaire who has already begun the push for the privatization of education - will become America's 11th Education Secretary. If you've been living under a rock (or perhaps inside a nuclear…

Student loans are becoming a major issue for the economy, and Donald Trump has inherited a country with an expansive and rapidly expanding student loan problem. In a capitalistic society, debt becomes a mountain of monetary problems. The public sector has fallen into an abysmal state - one that has been forced into chains by private…

The AR-15 is a rifle that is primarily used in a military setting that has trickled it’s way down into civilian usage. Known to the military as the M16 and referee exclusively as an AR-15 in civilian models, the gun — a weapon of mass murder — is located center field in several mass shootings and homicide. The AR-15 is lightweight, gas-operated, magazine-fed, and air-cooled. Quick to move with and easy to take apart, sophisticatedly controlled, and capable of churning out magazine after magazine of bullets, the weapon is something you’d expect to find primarily on the battlefield.

Let me wake up the criminal Cruz Crew. We’re talking about a religious, evangelical zealot that puts Mike Huckabee to God’s shame. Ted Cruz is ignorant, a literal unconstitutional conservative hiding behind the constitution itself, a document he’s probably read as many times as he’s read his hypocritical Holy book: zero times. He’s been playing with the minds of voters like a psychopathic freak since day one of his campaign, falsely comparing himself to Ronald Reagan (who wouldn’t be able to classify himself as a Republican in this modern day, strained Five Ring Republican Circus) and repeatedly calling voters that were openly for other candidates to “inform” them that their candidate was dropping out and that they should vote for, you guessed it, Ted Cruz.

Cruz himself has admitted that there is absolutely no mathematical path to victory when it comes to this election, and that he is literally hoping to steal the election in a Republican contested convention this summer. He’s desperately trying to pick up as many remaining votes as possible, in an attempt to sway female conservatives and brain-dead, far-right evangelicals who were considering to bail ship and vote for Trump. It’s a thinly veiled cloud of desperation from the Cruz camp, picking a candidate incredibly close to his ideals as a last ditch effort to get attention in the late primary cycle. Let me break it easily for Cruz: it doesn’t matter what he does, it’s far too late.

Ancient Aliens is NOT a documentary. It is NOT a non-fiction program on a trustworthy and respected non-fiction channel. It’s throwing all respect, all caution for proper programming and research for legitimate claims, through the window. It should be mocked. It should be ignored. It should be cancelled. This April is the 6th year anniversary of the pilot episode, we’re on over one hundred episodes of complete and utter historical and scientific inaccuracy.

Meet Carly Fiorina, one of the most pathetic excuses for a candidate in the Republican primaries in 2016, 28 years after Dukakis and his failed attempt to become president. She’s been caught in a string of lies, from Planned Parenthood to the real reason why she bailed from her failure at the Iowa Caucus (she claimed it was due to a storm). A terrible politician who inherited her terrible behavior from her terrible time as a failure of a CEO at HP, Fiorina has absolutely no business being in the primaries. She bashes Clinton for over-using the term ‘woman’ and then turns around to boast about how she’s the only woman running on the Republican side. Her fanbase is composed of elderly women who watch Fox News (so about six people across America).

The American obsession with money has been present throughout our history. The media — whether it be news networks like CNN or entertainment channels like MTV — teach our society that greed is good. We’re force-fed wealthy propaganda, seeing stories and advertisements for the “best cars”, “most expensive colognes and perfumes”, “great shoes”. People proudly show off their wealth on television, a nonstop wave of new-age Hollywood movies glorify the lifestyles of the elite men and women of America, and American politics have proven time and time again that money is behind anything. Then we have the dreaded Powerball lottery.
