RE:  Implanted chip ‘allows blind people to detect objects’

 

What do the ancient & future people have in common?

-Both can live longer for more than a century.  I can already foresee the merging of robotics to humanity just like in sci-fi films. Cool! 😉

The Age of Androids and Photonics

RE:   Nurse Robot Cheerfully Smiles, Ensures Years of Nightmares

The nurse robot is an inspiring development in the field of robotics.  It can be useful to monitor the patients, but human intervention will still be required.  Nothing can still be compared from a real nurse, not even an android.

This article reminds me when I worked in a university 5 years ago, the robotic’s club from Elementary to  High School with the help of the Engineering students, made robotics fun and exciting with the use Lego Mindstorms.  Robotics has become the focus in Asia and I admire how they innovate products so fast just to meet the demands of a highly competitive world.

RE: Researchers Teach Soy Tricks To Appeal To Indian Tastes

“Proteins can also be found in tofu & nuts and not just in meat.”  Since  tofu is bland, only the health conscious & vegans are improving it just for a palatable meal.

In my hometown, tofu – a “far eastern invention, cheese like food made of curdled soybean milk” can easily be bought for just a cheap price, but here in Egypt it’s not in demand that’s why it’s difficult to find.

The good thing in developing countries is that, its people become innovative and resourceful to maximize the available resources.

The article below is interesting  to tweet here for others to create more  healthy, palatable and cheap food.

Howard Gardner’s Theory of MI

Trackback:

http://marither.blog.friendster.com/2009/02/howard-gardners-theory-of-multiple-intelligences/

First published last February 15, 2009

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

This theory may lack empirical evidence based from the critics. Thus, the theory & the MI assessment test are still useful for parents and educators, for them to know their child/student’s strengths and understand their weak points.

Though it would be hard for teachers to design lesson plans & curricula for each student based on the the test results, but it would be better if they could group the students based on the results of the test through sectioning.  Ex. Section A will have all the students that are Logically Intelligent, Section B – Musically Intelligent, Section C – People Smart, Section D – Self Smart, etc.

Each has its own.  Each one is unique.  Each has its own strengths & weaknesses.  If a parent/teacher don’t know how to discover the strength of his/her child/student then he/she would end up focusing on  the weaknesses, giving unjust punishments and depriving the child to discover his/her own strengths.

“Every time you understand, guide & support a student/kid , you save a soul.”

“How can your students have faith in themselves, if you as their teacher don’t have faith in them?”

“An educator should be a facilitator to guide a student/kid to discover/learn by himself/herself and not be a dictator to force a student to learn according to what you want..” – This is hard in a traditional system of education, that’s why somehow I appreciate the Montessori system of education.  I remember a superior insulted a teacher by telling her: “You are so traditional”.  At first she just took it for granted, but after realizing what it meant, she started to be innovative.

RE: Php 43 billion needed to add 2 years in basic education

RE: Php 43 billion needed to add 2 years in basic education in the Philippines.

The education system in public schools especially in the third world countries has been a problem for years.  Adding 2 more years in basic education is not the solution to the problem but it would make the problem worst. Why? Because of the following reasons:

  1. Corruption is rampant, and the citizens are no longer confident that the money really goes to the people.
  2. If there’s a problem of producing graduates, then by adding 2 more years will lengthen the burden of the parents especially to those who are expecting for their children to graduate early to get a job and help them financially.  The curriculum developers of the country could brainstorm and create comprehensive curricula and schedule to meet the international standard.  Subject integration is essential to master the required and pertinent information as it saves time & effort.
  3. The 43 billion can be very useful to improve the education system of the country and solve the pending issues and problems like: classroom shortage, low wage for teachers, lack of resources, lack of training for teachers & staff, lack of concern in serving healthy and clean food to students and staff in the canteen, lack of concern in improving the facilities and maintaining the cleanliness & orderliness in the classrooms and the whole school to make it more conducive for learning.

The government officials have the power to earn more, so no need to take the budget allocated for the country for personal purposes. They have the power to organize groups and social networks to create more funds. They have the power to use the elite groups to help the less fortunate. They have the power to use the human resources to work for the country.  They have the power to control over the natural resources and the power to represent the country as ambassadors to connect to the world to market the country’s products and seek for sponsors and investors for a more productive and profitable country.

The Magical World of Mathematics

Sometimes a forwarded chain email is useful and interesting, just like the math magic below.

Math is boring to some people but could be very interesting especially if you’ll discover the beauty of it, just like the PI and the Fibonacci Sequence that can describe the beauty and essence of nature.

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321


1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10= 1111111111

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888

Brilliant, isn’t it?


And look at this symmetry:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111=12345678987654321

Now, take a look at this…

101%

>From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:

What Equals 100%?

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been in situations where someone wants you to

GIVE OVER 100%.

How about ACHIEVING 101%?

What equals 100% in life?

Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help

answer these questions:

If:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

If:

H-A-R-D-W-O-R- K



8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

And:

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E



11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But:

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E



1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:

L-O-V-E-O-F-G-O-D



12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4 = 101%

Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:

While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will
get you there. It’s the Love of God that will put you over the top!

When Toxic People Rule

Regarding the article by Ken Keis on “Just Say No to Toxic People”,  it’s inevitable to be with toxic people, worst when you’ll be obliged to be with them.  Staying with them will defeat the purpose, yet avoiding them will lead you to a more serious trouble.    How can you be positive when you’re surrounded by pessimists, which will only lead you to danger if you insist on what you believe in is right, for they rule? How can you fight for what you believe in is right when the negative ideas of the majority will win?

Whether we like it or not, we are living in the real world, where toxic people can be powerful and influential and we have no choice but to obey and abide with them which eventually can mold us to be like them.  Each one of us has good and bad sides, each one of us has positive and negative energies, each one of us can be a pest and a pesticide,  each one of us can feel the light of the day and the darkness of  night, each one of us has toxicity within us that can be hidden or shown.
