  • Tok E5 - 1,564 words
    TOK E5 True and False seem to be such clear and simple terms, opposites and mutually exclusive. In reality, however we may inhabit, in much or even most of our knowledge the fuzzy area in between the two. Discuss the difficulties of attempts to draw a clear line between the two categories in at least two areas of knowledge. The question of the definition of true and false has for centuries of western civilization baffled the greatest of philosophers. The question being not just simply the definition of True and false, but rather where one can draw the line which delineates/segregates the two. In order to extrapolate an answer for this question an investigation into at least two areas of know ...

  • Top 10 Percent Graduating - 1,118 words
    Top 10 Percent Graduating Top Ten Percent Graduating top ten percent is a hard road filled with four years of all nighters, study sessions, and countless hours at the library. To graduate with this honor not only brings pride to ones parents but it also gives the student a special privilege. The top ten percent rule passed in 1997 (House Bill 588) by the 75th legislator automatically accepts these students to any public Texas University. While this may seem like a noble idea on the surface, in retrospect this gives an unfair advantage to the rest of the graduating class. Texas government believes that the top ten percent rule will encourage students to work harder in high school and increase ...

  • Tqm Doesnt Work - 1,008 words
    Tqm Doesn't Work While I agree that Quality improves organizations, businesses, and individuals, Total Quality Management (TQM) as a system for improvement loses its effectiveness based on the present culture, business methodologies, and globalization of markets. TQM has invaded countless industries and is a favorite "buzz word" of top executives and managers, TQM concepts are rarely fully implemented other than posters, memos, and press releases. While the basic concepts of TQM are inherently internal to each of us, the moniker of TQM continues to be an elusive goal that everyone in business "loves to talk about" but never successfully implements. This approach involves guaranteeing that an ...

  • Ufo Kinds - 3,432 words
    UFO Kinds Ever since US Air Force Pilot Kenneth Arnold coined the term Flying Saucer, on 24th June 1947, after allegedly encountering nine disk shaped objects while out flying over the Cascade Mountains, the world wide sightings of such objects, has increased logarithmically. By 1957 the furor over UFO sightings showed no sign of abating and the sightings had now been awarded levels of classification by US Astronomer, Allen. J. Hynek. Hynek created three categories for UFO encounters: Close encounters of the first kind: nocturnal lights, daylight disks, the second kind: Physical affects left by UFOs, marks on the ground, car engines stalling and finally close encounters of the third kind: th ...

  • What Is In Mars - 1,212 words
    What Is In Mars Did life exist on Mars? What would it take to build a spaceship that could travel at the speed of light? When will the moon be colonized? These are just some of the questions that wander through my mind all day. Fascinated by the secrets of the universe, I yearn to uncover mysteries. In order to blast open all the closed gates between knowledge and myself, I need the powerful tools of education. After I graduate from high school, I plan to attend a college or university that has strong mathematics and science departments. Even now, I am actively preparing to enter the realm of science, taking college-level math and physics classes through the Running Start program. Upon recei ...

  • Wheel Invention - 1,277 words
    Wheel Invention The invention of the wheel was a miraculous invention, along with the airplane, and the telephone. All the inventions that have ever been created werent just something that was already drawn out on a piece of paper for the inventors. They had to think. They had to imagine the masterpiece before it was even a physical object. These people werent just thinkers or inventors. These people "Thought Outside the Box." The writer Sarah Susanka, the author of "The Not So Big House," once said that "The ability to think creatively, responding to needs and wishes, not to preconceived ideas of what something should look like, then the problem will be solved." [SIC] What I think she means ...

  • Women In Educational Administration: The Glass Ceiling Is Still There - 1,627 words
    Women In Educational Administration: The Glass Ceiling Is Still There WOMEN IN EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION THE GLASS CEILING IS STILL THERE Several people at the conference dealt with the problems women encounter in getting into administrative positions in schools and colleges and when they do, the obstacles they encounter in making their jobs successful. Their discussions brought home to me the reality of my own mother's experience. As children we witnessed our mother struggling, summer after summer and during many school years in the evenings, with those courses required for an administrative license. The state gave her that license some twelve years ago, but she is still teaching mathemati ...

  • Women In The Hellenistic World - 1,481 words
    ... . A couple of examples of women's literacy come from two places; poetry and the ability to sign one's own marriage contract. We know of female poets in Classical Greece but now in Egypt with the new amounts of papyri women's works remained intact as proof of their literacy. But the important part is that of women being able to sign their marriage contracts. Education became available to women in this period as well. Hipparchia, one of the first female Cynical philosophers even received an education based on the curriculum of a Greek boy. She received an education in rudimentary mathematics, music, literature, and of physical education. The aspect of women even being allowed to be involve ...

  • Worth Of Education - 315 words
    Worth of Education Scholarship Essay A few days ago, as I was eating lunch with friends, I entered a heated debate about the worth of education. "I should not have to learn algebra and calculus because it will have no influence on my life," my opponent angrily shouted as I tried to defend the usefulness of mathematics. Three days later, I still mul l over the issue, trying to arrive at the origin of the disparity of views betw een my opponent and me. I treasure every bit of knowledge I gain, in or out of school. When someone contends that a particular academic field or realm of inf ormation has no applications, I feel compelled to demonstrate the fallacy of such an argument by citing an exam ...

  • Year Round Schooling - 1,055 words
    Year Round Schooling For more than twenty years the educational and economic benefits of year round schooling have been debated in the United States. Experts agree that year round schooling may not be the answer to the problems of all school districts. However in more than 205 districts nation wide, problems have been resolved by year round schooling. First I need to explain that this is different from extending the school year; on a year round schedule, students attend school the same number of days-180-as students on the traditional nine-month calendar. The difference is that year round education (YRE) students have several short vacations rather than one three-month summer break. Most yea ...

  • You Asked Us In Class How Did We Learn How To Act In Class I Swear I Would Have Never Been Able To Answer That Question Had S - 696 words
    You asked us in class how did we learn how to act in class. I swear I would have never been able to answer that question had somebody else not answered that. How interesting to find out at age 25 how I learned how to do everything. I often wondered how I learned to be nice. Then I think how it must of come from my mother and father. They are very nice people. Even more interesting is I think of a childhood friend of mine who I occasionally talk to. Her parents were evil people. They were always saying mean things and giving dirty looks. This childhood friend of mine has always been and is still an unpleasant person. After reading Bandura's theory, it becomes very clear (attention -- the indi ...
