The public institutions of higher education represented nearly three-quarters of all enrollments. With this fact, it is no secret remote learning has apparently become one of the most traditional higher education replacements.

Getting higher education is vital for everybody in the world who wants to compete with the advanced and modern cultures. In some countries getting a tertiary education is not a big deal, but in some other countries, it has become a problem for the people. It requires not only time and interest but also money. Nowadays, higher education is becoming imperative for the attaining or securing a decent job in the market.

Distance learning plays a vital role in fulfilling the needs of people who do not have enough time and money to spend on their higher education. Like all other things in the world, distance learning does have pros and cons points. For now, a few facts of distance learning are given below so that people can understand correctly that how it works?

Therefore, Earth Day is celebrated to protect the Earth and keep the world beautiful.

It was established as an attempt to better issue that was not addressed in politics with the environmental movement. Also, He wanted to raises awareness of the need to protect the Earth for future generations.

The earth day events are here again and in Atlanta, Georgia, where I resident and as history has it, the earth day events have been celebrated here for years without end. I love and will be participating in the Earth day events because I feel like all year-round I am usually so engrossed in work that I hardly remember to set aside sometime so that I can be able to relate to the environment around me.

Earth day events are very formal, and they present the best platform for my family and me to deliver something special to our environment. This year I am proud to say that I will attend four earth day events they are namely, earth day stream cleans up, earth day at Georgia Aquarium, the Decatur earth day festival, and the Kula Project earth day concert.

As you come to the events, carry an extra pair of attitude and by attitude, I mean you should be ready to learn and experience as the events unfold. Having an attitude to learn has always been helpful to me; in the event where I interact with my neighbors, we get to exchange ideas on the many ways we stand to benefit from the environment.

If someone doesn’t appreciate your presence, make them appreciate your absence!

appreciaate

A person who cannot appreciate an individual who is nice nor appreciate his or her values, and worth does not deserve to have the privilege of their presence. All the same, being nice to others should be the way we all live and behave. Unfortunately, it is not always the case, and people who are over-giver or nice to other are taken for granted. If you spend most of your life allowing people to take advantage of your niceness, it is time you stop ranting and raving because even when you yell it all to no avail; it is time to put on a firm attitude. It is okay to be a good guy or girl, but a person who is friendly one-day, sulks and withdraws the next means he or she need boundaries. Set some ground rules to use your discretion and firm up whenever it is required.

An over-giver and a nice person are someone a self- centered person will never appreciate and they do not deserve to have the privilege of their presence. Self-centered people know the things that will make them happy, but they do not always know what they have with a friend until they are gone. When a selfish person is too busy being blind to appreciate, your presence grants them the absent they deserve and befriend somebody who will maintain an even balance of you; a matcher. After all, people who are often blind to the truth have not gained the knowledge to see themselves objectively.

Are You an Over-Giver? A Person Who Give Too Much

The number one question is, are you an over-giver who gives too much? Let’s define an over-giver? What is an over-giver? An over-giver is one who gives, and give and give and give and even when not able they give some more, ones who gives too much. It is not that giving is a ‘bad thing’ – it is far from that – but giving when you do not have usually bring great harm and No value to you. On the contrary, although giving can be a ‘good thing,’ it is a ‘bad thing’ when a person gives to ‘keep’ people around him or her. An individual who gives too much do not have limits or have not set boundaries. He or she generally gives too much in the wrong situations and to the wrong people who will only step all over them like a doormat.

If you’re an over-giver and wondering where to start in stopping, it’s time you begin the search to stop doing these dodgy preventative measures. Moreover, since it no way to go cold turkey all at once but you need to stop over-giving immediately, you can start with reducing, but bear in mind when you’re over-giving you are giving away your self-esteem and dignity, and when you are giving it away, you’re giving too much. Also, know, if you’re giving with a view that the other person will attribute the same value that you do to your giving, you are in search of an ‘unfavorable outcomes,’ and all your excessive giving only means, you’re giving too much.

Now that you in search of a solution, the most valuable thing that you can do for yourself is to set boundaries and start making sure that you get love and respect from everyone that are around you. Now that you have set limitations and withhold giving too much to other people they will not regard you as a useful, valuable contributor anymore. That may leave you feeling ‘scared’ now that you are thinking of stop giving. It also may leave you wonder where to go from ‘here.’ More than likely you are feeling ‘bad’ about stop giving, and at times it may be hard to say NO. Besides, you might even feel guilty as if Good People don’t suppose to say no, you may find yourself feeling as if you are letting other’s down by walk away.

Today the road are full of people who put their life at risk the moment they engage in distracted driving. At present, a total of forty-six states has outlaw texting while driving and fourteen states forbid hand-held cellphone use by all drivers. A hands-free device does not necessarily make the driver safe because it does not reduce the distraction to the brain.

Driving a car can sometimes bring fear to the learners, and when a person have a phobia of driving, it can sometimes be nerve wrecking. As a matter of fact, it is okay to be a little jumpy before you first learn how to drive. However, it is a more fun and challenging to ride a car and drive it safely.

Mending A Divided Nation!

Nation divided

One can’t help but wonder what’s happening in America? Eight years later, as President Obama prepares to leave office, the nation is divided by race and economics regardless of all the progress that we’ve made under his leaderships. Following the presidency of a black president, you would think the United States today would be the most color-blind society in history. Although the nation’s first black president, Barak Obama brought satisfaction and hope to the White House, he leaves with the stock market continuing to set records, unemployment at a nine-year low and on a policy record that could be remembered as “impressive” and “significant.”

More than eight years ago, the nation’s first African-American president took over at a tough moment, and he strived to use his first four years in office to get some very significant changes complete and yet the world is filled with uncertainty as race relations have gotten worse. After the departure of a black president, you would think the United States today would be the most color-blind society in history. Nonetheless, not so, today we’re a country that is led by a President that many believe to be racial and the differences go on and on. If the United States have any hope of avoiding further disaster and return the economy to growth, it’s time to begin searching for answers now.

President Trump won the election with a divided and conquered strategy, but when is that a positive strategy? To “divide and conquer” can be both a positive and negative approach, so what make it a strategy to support? I believe in using “divide and conquer” to give some privilege and not to give others the same opportunity only set up a division and can serve as a negative strategy as it can be used to weaken solidarity. If we have any hope of repairing these divisions — the president must grow a thicker skin to be able to deflect criticisms and honor his words to take America back or make it great again by focusing on the more important objectives, like bringing Americans closer.

There is the hope, however, what need to stop is building walls between people. President Trump insists on building a wall on the border between the US and Mexico; walls divides— a practice which separates, — and it is evident we need to repair these divisions by engaging in the process of dialogue and reconciliation. As he came into office, the United States was marked by boycotts and the world witnessed the most politically divided nation since the 1960s. Let us seek new avenues of peace as America’s future greatness won’t be the result of unilateral, partisan policy-making. It must be a product of beliefs that Americans accept as true, and trust is worth working toward. On the contrary, if the president wants to build something we urge building bridges that strengthen the Union and reinforce the principle of working together.

As a nation that is still divided and doesn’t know how to comes together with a new president and administration, my question is how did the nation get so divided and how can the president serve a deep bond of shared values and common interests? Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asked Americans to approach the president with an open mind. Americans can still reconnect, and it’s time for us to unite for the prospects of new ideas that could shrink the dividend. It is time for us all to face the reality that for many Americans, to be able to work and live around “diversity,” we need to be openly friends and form relationships with people of ethnicities and stop inviting into our lives and homes, only people who often look like we do.

The primary goal or conception for this world today is to eliminate racial discrimination, and my question is, are we ever going to reach true equality between races? Although it may seem as if to take forever, with the right approach it has the capability of eventually being reached. It’s a fact; we have a long way to go to achieve racial equality and the distant between where we are now, and true justice is finite. Bear in mind, if we keep approaching national and discrimination concerns, EVENTUALLY we will get there. Racial discrimination requires everyone to settle their differences between themselves and others and, most importantly, be happy with who they are and can live their life.

Creating an Inner Peace That Endures!

peace 2

Like many people, I haven’t honestly felt like I’ve been living my life. Up until a few years ago, I have been stuck in a world of darkness; I did not feel good most of the time as I thought there’s no way of finding myself. The pain I often felt made me longed not to feel. After years of suffering Thank God, one morning as I found myself struggling to begin the day, I took the time to start listening to the cheerful, chatty singing of sparrows. As I listen to their symphony of clatter, it was as if they regime my emotions and I swallow down their happiness.

That very day, I blossom into this new person that rediscover herself, and that became an incredible first step to inner peace. The tranquility that I sincerely hope and pray for – an awakening. Although it may sound a little strange, the person I was even one month ago, is an entirely different being than who I am today. Reason being there is never a time that we stop growing. Living in this densely-populated world, there is a lot of negative energy but if you set energetic boundaries one can deal with the rigors of life to find inner peace.

Dealing with negativity can be quite a downer, especially when you are absorbing other people’s negative energy. But before I realize the people around me brought negative energy and was just not the right individuals to be in my life, my days involved a tug of melancholy that torment me as I fought to ignore the veiled darkness. To release all negativity, I had to let go of the friends and acquaintances who dump their pessimism on me. It was not easy to learn to let go and saying “no” to people who do not deserve my time. But when I found strength to let go, to let be that was how I found this remarkable inner peace.

In fact, maybe the reason we can truly appreciate a daylight is it remove the darkness. Nonetheless, it is our light that frightens us, not our darkness. The truth be told, we are all meant to find the daylight and not fear it. Although, being terrified of the daylight isn’t being broken or concealing a dark secret. It’s when one can choose to go backward to feel save instead of forward toward growth. In this sense, there are multiple sides to all of us. Yes, there are different sides of the various personalities that exist in all of us such as who we are – who we think we are, and who we might be if we build our goals and follow our dreams.

Everyone’s journey is compelled to be different and to find the right path that best works for you are an ongoing process. One thing, my own experience has taught me is striving to discover the right path is constant. Granting, in any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. Nonetheless, if you wait for the perfect moment when all is safe and assured it might never arrive. Despite everything, fear not, friends. We all discover things at different times.
