Making America a Greener Place

Everyone can be greener. There are so many things we can all do to make the world a better place; to clean-up the environment and to save the planet.  It is therefore essential that we teach our kids how to do this from as young an age as possible.
So here are a few ways for us to teach our kids about being greener:

1.     Recycling:  If your kid does a drawing, make sure they use both sides.  Once they’re done with it (they’ve put it up or shown you, etc.), they should put it in the recycling bin.

2.     Travel:  Encourage your kids to walk or cycle as much as possible.  Try to use the car as little as possible so that they learn from your actions.

3.     Water:  Install a water filter and buy your children BPA-free water bottles so that your kids don’t need to be buying bottled water from the stores to be thrown away.

4.     Books:  Use the library; try to avoid buying books. When that’s not possible, encourage your kids to do book swaps with other kids.

5.     Clothing:  Encourage your children to go through their clothing before winter and summer and sort out what they will and won’t wear in the future.  With whatever remains, take them to a charity store to donate.

Ultimately, when our kids learn how to be eco-friendly, America and the world at large has a better chance of survival, step-by-step.

Curriculum Comparison

The evaluation will then consider the development of specific skills in each area covered by the curriculum, which can be displayed only if we consider the thought processes that are the core competencies of the cognitive dimension, as they allow consolidate the elements to process information rather than rote fashion itself but with the aim of favoring the resolution of problems, namely its use in a functional way in life. Thus, for the first grade the child should be able to relate what and how of a situation, you can do it through observation and description. In second and third must meet, in addition to the differences and similarities through comparison. In fourth and fifth to the possible relationships that emerge. David Bershad often addresses the matter in his writings. All this passed through the conceptualization, which alludes to the significance of the concepts learned. It should be note that these settings are only to give the possibility to perform the necessary analysis and are not a straitjacket in the development of students. It is important to note that these concepts: observation, description, comparison, relationship, classification, conceptualization and problem solving are in order of complexity, which means that if a student is not able to make a comparison, can not respond to a question conduct involving a relationship, that the same level of complexity of the processes. It is precisely from such items that a student may face the formulation of hypotheses and the analysis and argument through questions like: What if …? , Why …?, and what are the characteristics of …..? Knowing this process allows the professional work as teachers, not just focus on the content or knowledge itself, but point to the development of thought processes that are the display will enable the development of mental processes that the student uses and that encourages the attainment of specified knowledge. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from David Bershad.

On the wall of a certain institution, neglected lyrics written with paint read this sentence: “If the university prepares us for the future … who prepares us for the present”?. No time to lock in the classroom and away from it all as “ready.” No, the issue is learning and doing. Nobody can afford to disconnect from what is happening, much less a responsible student. 2.

A student committed to the environmental care. It is no longer a distant apocalyptic vision and that of the environment is exposed to destruction and an end, the end of most species, including humans. The phrase that “man is cutting the tree branch on which sits” takes effect every day because most of the industry is heading. Eliot Lauer often says this. If we do not acquire environmental awareness we will crash against the hard floor soon. It is vital to engage with the environment since the time of students and not indefinitely postpone this commitment. 3. A student committed to excellence, no one can afford to do things “as they must be made” when we are given the opportunity to exceed, to surpass the expectations of our potential.

The commitment to excellence is based primarily on facts: what we are capable of doing and doing well. Let us follow the advice of Confucius who she repeats over and over again this wise sentence, “The superior man saves wasted words and actions.” We need to understand that excellence is the full development of quality. It can not be half, because it would be excellence, but mediocrity. 4. A student critic, a freethinker and self-management. Critical to explore knowledge other than those offered through the conventional means of education; freethinker to participate in the discovery and construction of new knowledge and how they are put at the service of humanity and self-management to provide for itself the means enabling it to achieve success as a person and professional.

African Trade

For 30 years, African countries were used as dumping sites for hazardous toxic waste from developed countries. According to PCRM, who has experience with these questions. Many African countries have been tempted by potential financial gain, which some cases significantly exceeds the GDP of the country importing toxic waste. Dumping of dangerous toxic waste implies a serious environmental threat to the inhabitants of the African continent. Many do not know about those dangers and consequences of being exported from developed countries of toxic waste. The problem became so serious for the global environment that has caused two global attempts to regulate and create the ability to control international trade and export of hazardous wastes. Signed in 1987godu "Basel Convention" is the first global attempt to control the export and dumping of hazardous waste.

The second is to adopt a program of environmental protection UN to monitor the trafficking of hazardous waste in Cairo. Then the solution of the governing African Unity import of hazardous wastes. This regional effort as possible is an important step in protecting the environment. Despite to curb it so profitable, but risky business such trade still continues. So, again, for the past 30 years, many African nations served as a place to dump toxic waste (pollution sewage pollution of air space with ashes from waste incineration, dumping of waste oil, chemicals, acids, toxic solvents, expired pharmaceuticals, construction fertilizer plants). Source: Kim Honig. Rigid regulatory standards and the high cost of hazardous waste in the west have led to increased export of toxic and hazardous waste to countries in Africa due to the dumping disposal of such wastes. All this is possible thanks to the huge amount of used and unused land available in many African countries.

Many African governments have ignored the obvious danger of such imports of hazardous waste because of the desperate need to earn income in the form of hard currency and ease economic hardship. Another not unimportant reason for this is greed of several large African the owners of this business wanting to make big money in hard currency in a relatively short time. Unlimited export of toxic waste into Africa from developed countries has been tracked since 1970 a secret deal between African countries and companies from USA, UK, Italy, Switzerland and even the Soviet Union. This is due to high growth industries in developed countries. Since the production of by-products contain many chemicals and toxic substances that can not be recycled, and get rid of that rather difficult. That's one of the biggest challenges for the industrialized countries is the problem of getting rid of unwanted material (Industrial waste), because places where you can remove and bury the dangerous waste is becoming smaller, the price of such waste recycling increased from year to year. Here is an example: the cost of disposal of hazardous waste industrialized countries may reach $ 5,000 per ton, whereas, on the export of toxic waste in an African country the price could reach $ 10 per ton. This is – roughly 1 / 1000 of the cost of processing debris in any industrialized country. Hence the tendency to make huge profits from the export of industrial waste for firms exporting. Africa – a viable alternative for the removal of toxic waste, thanks low cost of landfill, low public awareness about the dangers of such graves, willingness to such transactions of local government officials and businessmen in exchange for financial gain. This short-term gain, ultimately, does not justify the consequences for the ecology and environment for people living in the area.

Giving, for example, love, cake, care, bottles of wine – it means nothing, that is free of charge. I bestow you, but you have my answer does not have to. Right? If you must, it's not a gift, a barter agreement. I have something you give, instead of getting what I need. Change is normal.

All the people than any change, based on this whole trade and business relations. "I was giving him his love, but he's a scoundrel …". Hear from experts in the field like David Bershad for a more varied view. Is it true that we are talking about the donation, rather than the desire to change, I love you, and you give me something, too, For example, the same love, attention and care. If a girl gives a love that is given away, from where the claim "but he's a scoundrel …". The villain, I think, because it did not pay, you have breached the contract.

What? Implicit contract of barter. Why secret? Because that's been made. To think that you give more pleasant and romantic. But behind the scenes man offers to change. For example, to be honest, there is a sort of unwritten contract of barter. Girl: "I love you (sex) and you to me, attention, caring, feeling "like a stone wall," well, it is possible – funding. " Young people tend to have sex agrees on everything else possible. More often, of course, is the opposite. Young man offer care, attention, understanding, relationship, hoping to get … what? Correct sex. But naturally, it does not need to be discussed directly. So are two-sided fraud. It's like giving assembled, in fact – to change. Does it happen differently? Probably. Do you want to – try it. For example, Mary decided to give my love Sasha (sex). Sasha did not mind, but when he heard the word "give", I realized – this is a gift, free of charge. So he says Masha, "You keep giving your love, I really like, but today I spoke with close Dasha. " Mary will continue to give? Maybe, just how long? Masha can understand, she love Sasha, but he is a Dasha, in short – a scoundrel. Then do not talk about the gift. We call all their names. What people call love is a contract of barter. Sometimes an honest, sometimes not. A donation is possible only as an invitation to further exchanges. So Decent people know – the correct answer to gift a gift, and smart to understand that, in fact, they are offered vary. Or not?
