A Quick Thought: MPs – second job with perks, or no second jobs?

…Why not. Why not, just have MPs whom have other businesses where they gain money, not get the perks associated with MPs -which would equate to an economic nonentity- and those that do not, do?

And have penalties for those whom break the rules?

To keep the balance.

Federalization of the internet and wordpress

Just read this and holy wow. That’s potentially Bad News, for the idea of the internet- finding information on things (like the news in your area or the world from different places in the world on one topic- I myself am in the UK)! I imagine the lack of reaction might just be a hush hush attitude and manner.

Re-blogging this(Hope it goes viral. How is this lack of knowing-what-we’re-voting-for helping?! Plausible deniability, maybe..)

P.1On February 26th the FCC will rule on a 332 page bill submitted by the President that regulates the internet, wherein it states ???? Oh did I forget to mention that the contents are secret until after the vote by the FCC. This reminds me of what Nancy Pelosi said about oboma-care that we must pass the bill before we can see whats in the bill. I believe the internet has done a fair job of regulating itself so far so why does oboma want a new set of federal regulations and have those rules enforced by the FCC?

Today on the radio a member of the FCC’s voting board was on the air talking about how outside regulation would only mean increases in the price of internet access. He spoke in generalities because of the ‘gag order’ in place but did mention that these regulations would deal with allocation…

Stress: Weighing Up, Symptoms & Signs and What You Can Do About IT!

A useful website- how stressed are you?

Hi All,

Just a quick post I thought would be helpful :).

If you’re feeling particularly anxious (could be the time of year, even), are stressed more at the moment, or if stress is part of your day-to-day life and you’d like to get to grips with it…or tackle it better, whatever the reason, this website does a good job outlining it! HelpGuide .

I already knew about The Stress Response in our bodies, and you might be interested in the beginning bit- but you don’t have to read the ‘What is stress?’ section (which discusses this).

If you would like to get a bit of information and an idea, I’d say read the intro paragraph, and have a look at the two sections:

‘How do you respond to stress?’ and ‘How Much Stress is Too Much?’ Which lists things that can help; I believe that learning about stress and what we can do to make it better will empower people so that it’s manageable! Stress can be a weapon/tool, if we know how to deal :D!

‘ Signs and Symptoms of stress Overload'(a graph pictured below, with the original bit of text quoted to be safe : ) is another bit to look at ^~^.

Signs and Symptoms of stress Overload

The more signs you have the closer to overload!  "Keep in mind that the signs and symptoms of stress can also be caused by other psychological or medical problems. If you’re experiencing any of the warning signs of stress, it’s important to see a doctor for a full evaluation. Your doctor can help you determine whether or not your symptoms are stress-related."

The more signs you have the closer to overload!

Afterwards, or another time, if (especially) you have these signs and symptoms- or tend to, you could use the quiz and keep reading :).

Hope it helps!

How ESL and EFL classrooms differ

Needed information whilst on the Search (for Tutors) for my brother..
This was quite helpful! 🙂

Oxford University Press

Filling in formsIn her first guest post for OUP, Kate Bell, a writer and researcher, talks us through some of the practical differences between ESL and EFL classrooms.

You may think that teaching English is teaching English, whether you’re doing it in a Thai village or a suburban California school. And you’d be right, sort of. Many of the same textbooks, lesson plans, and online resources serve in both cases. Many English teachers go from one type of teaching position to the other, and back again. But there are fundamental differences between ESL and EFL classrooms. Understanding them will make you a more effective teacher.

An ESL classroom is in a country where English is the dominant language. The students are immigrants or visitors. The class is usually of mixed nationalities, so students don’t share a native language or a common culture. Outside the classroom, students have a specific, practical need…
