Finland Calls Finish to Cursive Hand Writing Lessons in Classrooms

Finland is scrapping cursive writing lessons in schools from next year and will instead teach children how to type, raising questions for the future of handwriting in Australian classrooms.

The country’s board of education said learning to type was “more relevant to everyday life”, a skill that Australian experts agreed was a better use of school time. Since implementing education reforms 40 years ago, Finland’s school system has consistently come at the top for the international rankings for education systems.

Finnish children don’t start school until they’re 7, exams don’t kickoff until they’re into their teens – going unmeasured for the first 6 years of education – There is only 1 mandatory standardised test – taken at 16 yo – and the difference between the weakest and strongest student is the lowest on the planet. So should we be taking notice? :: Read the full article »»»»


GCHQ Spy Recruitment Code Cracked Within Hours

Posted: December 2nd, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Favorite New Thought, From The Web | Tags: , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on GCHQ Spy Recruitment Code Cracked Within Hours

GCHQ CODEThe UK’s Government Communications Headquarters – GCHQ – the intelligence agency responsible for recruiting spy’s, launched an online code-breaking game in an attempt to attract the country’s brightest minds via an online code-cracking website. According to GCHQ, the code was cracked within hours of it’s release. The agency, which works with MI5 and MI6, has invited applicants to demonstrate their code-cracking ability by deciphering a series of letters and numbers. The initiative is part of a drive to help shore up the country against potential cyber attacks in the future. Successful code-crackers will not only win the internet game – though there isn’t a prize –  but they could also land a job. The game was launched last month and carries on until December 12. Breaking the code, however, does not guarantee a job. A successful code-breaker will be put through to the GCHQ website and invited to apply for a post. So far more than 50 people have successfully cracked the code, a spokesman said, 80 per cent of whom have made an application through the agency’s website.

Sir Francis Drake’s Ship Found

Posted: November 11th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Favorite New Thought, Socially Engineerd, That Human Condition | Tags: , , , , , , , | 3 Comments »

Sir Francis Drake, Vice Admiral Royal British Navy, was more than an English sea captain, privateer, navigator, slaver, and über-politician of the Elizabethan era, his hijinx and adventurous life were held high in the minds of most throughout the last – 20th- century, as England bathed in it’s former glory. So what – you may ask – does Drake have to do with a site that promotes blogging, social media and social networking?

Good question, there are a couple of reasons Sir Francis sits on our front page. Drake has always been my second favorite adventurer, not so much for his adventuring, but for his standout use of a life. Drake landed himself at the center of Elizabethan England, a society that ran on nepotism, and through a single opportunity he managed to carve out an enviable life for himself, create several myths as well as become slightly revered. In every mans life there is one opportunity, do something with it, become someone, or not, the choice is yours.

At a time when “It’s not what you know, but who you know” dictated the cast of every man, Drake took what he had and invented for himself a stage filled with color and movement. He invested every resource at his avail to achieve his ends, and ended his life doing what he’d set out o do. My fascination for Sir Frances Drake was no doubt implanted by an Anglo-Saxon education, and it was one educator in that system that planted the seed for my admiration of Drake.

Outwardly it may seem that two vocations couldn’t be further apart. Throughout my life I’ve known a heap of really smart people, people with really high IQ’s that excelled in school, that went on to become intellectually impressive. I’ve also met and worked with a lot of extremely successful entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs worth 7, 8 and even 9 figures. Intriguingly, the two groups are pretty much mutually exclusive. With one exception, SCIENTISTS. Why? :: Read the full article »»»»
