E-Learning 2.0 – The Latest Technology in Education

Much has been written about technology being used in education – how the use of online applications is rapidly spreading out in traditional classrooms, etc. Before the advent of e-learning 2.0, teachers delivered learning materials and instructions via lectures and assignments. However, the new type of e-learning has brought forth the concepts of wikis, blogs, and social media, to name a few. Teachers in various district schools and colleges have started to explore the potentiality of social media and blogs to conduct classes and courses online.

Social Media

Use commercial social networking websites in schools and libraries to impart education easily and quickly. For example, you can create a profile page on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc. to post and share information with large numbers of students and parents. The 2012 survey conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes Project found that Israel has the maximum number of people using social networking sites (53%) followed by USA in the second spot (50% using social media).


Many colleges in particular are using blogs in their classrooms to write and publish learning materials online. Blogs act as a great tool to encourage feedback, critical or otherwise, by allowing readers to add comments to any post, anytime, from home or while traveling somewhere. Many teachers are supporting their students to create and maintain a blog for publishing assignments and project works. It becomes extremely convenient for professors to check or download an assignment rather than to wait for the student to come and submit the work in person.


Podcasting has become a popular technology in learning. Many leading universities in the U.S. have created podcasts to offer free courses over the internet. For example, Boston College created the Boston College iTunes Web Site which provides a collection of lectures that students can load onto their iPods. You can also subscribe to the Georgetown University Forum iTunes Feed Web Site – a weekly radio program that highlights the research and expertise of Georgetown University teaching staff.

Media Sharing

Students can be encouraged to use Flickr, the free photo sharing website to upload and download multiple numbers of education-related photos to use for their schools tasks. You can access the photos and use them in slides, learning coursework, etc. Learners will also get the chance to comment on the uploaded photos to create a chain reaction suitable to share knowledge and impart education much easily and quickly.

Thus, e-learning 2.0 has opened up a range of avenues for both the teachers and students to gain education in a more advanced and updated setting.

Why Religious Discrimination Targets Women

The recent shooting of a Pakistani schoolgirl by the Taliban because of her outspoken views on education for women shocked the world. But it is not that long ago that most women were banned from higher education globally. The view that men alone are worthy of higher office and, therefore, the need to be educated is born of religions that target females for one reason or another.

A hundred years ago one would not have found a female doctor or lawyer and even educators were mostly of the male variety. It took two world wars to show the bigoted fundamentalists and those brainwashed into believing otherwise that women are as good as men. While the latter were sent to the war front to fight it was women who ran industries, built airplanes, organised work forces, grew the food, and demonstrated their worth to those who previously had considered them little more than burdens or a drain on the community.

The challenge made the fairer sex stronger and more assertive. They wanted equality and the right to vote. Slowly they won over those things and as they rose in statue religions took a back seat. It was no longer the role of women to simply run households and produce children. They could now wear pants and demand their rights; at least that is what happened in the western societies.

The eastern regions of countries like Pakistan and those that are now influenced greatly by the Muslim religious code saw no such change. While women may want to be in a situation to excel and show their value in the same way they are handicapped by the strength of the prejudice and discrimination against them.

The world is under the influence of 666 and that is the identity of Constantine who established the Catholic Church that exercises enormous discrimination against women to this day. It is patriarchal in its premise and one of its cohorts, Augustine Dea, was appointed by the Vatican to establish the Muslim religion. This has come to light through a priest who discovered the records in its archives and has gone public with it.

These two major faiths have come from the same source and are of the same ilk. Constantine brought the Islamic religion of Assyria into focus through the religion he founded. That is based on a heavenly prophet or so-called Son of God arriving to teach us that the king is his representative on earth.

For those that don’t know the Pope is king of the church in the style of the emperor. The Vatican’s creation of the Muslim faith is also based on a prophet, Mohammed, who was a real person discovered through an acquaintance and tutored into the role. The motivation, according to the report by a priest who examined archival documents, it was to add credibility to the Catholic claim that Jesus Christ and Mary were real and that the church was founded by the former.

Mary is the real god worshipped by Catholics and the men in that religion are forbidden to adore human females as it would take away from her. The Muslims worship the sun, which is called Mary in the old tradition. ‘Ma-r-i’, in the linguistic research undertaken by me into all aspects of speech, means ‘mother’s powerful eye’. Images photographed inside the sacred shrine at Mecca show the sun and the moon as the chief gods. The Muslim flag is the sun star in the cradle of the crescent moon.

To know that these things are at the heart of the discrimination and terrorism is causing me to speak out. The behaviour of these violent religions is something that needs to be brought up and openly condemned. People do not need to stay ignorant of what the founders of the Catholic Church got up to and what the Roman conspiracy implemented by the one identified as 666 in Revelation 13:13-18 has resulted in.

Education Article

If you don’t consistently put good things into your brain, then confusion and lies will clog it up, and they are incredibly hard to get out. Information is a never ending battle: we must be ever vigilant to what we put into our own heads because if we are intellectually lazy, there is a much less likely chance of us understanding anything about the world that we live in, and we will constantly be walking around, observing miseries, and questioning “Why? Why?”, because we didn’t take the time to put good information into our heads earlier on with which we could recall and make associations about the world that we live in and then we could use logic to understand things more clearly and take more appropriate actions.

Without logic, our actions are meaningless, and we will have no idea what we are doing, and confusion will be our companion instead of reason.

Reason is all around us, whether we realize it or not. It is everywhere: it is unavoidable. Why some people accept it while others don’t, especially on very simple issues, is one of the mysteries of the universe that I’m sure I will stew over for a while (stop telling me to “not think about it and just have fun” because thinking IS my fun. I know that a lot of people don’t understand that, but it’s true).

I have spent my whole life wondering why some people are less intelligent than others (as have many others), and I honestly do not know. But those people are no excuse for the rest of us not being able to learn. This is why individual liberty is so important: I have the right to learn even if others do not value education as much as I do.

As I’ve stated before, learning and writing are as natural to me as breathing, and I see a lot of people that say things like “I forgot what I learned in school” and then they complain about how terrible their life is. Would reason not be an appropriate facility to use in this circumstance? Why your life is so terrible? Instead, I see people using faulty logic and their lives get more and more terrible. It seems to me that logic dictates that we must use logic if we wish to understand issues.

There is much vilification of science and logic and reason from religious enthusiasts, and sadly, the only way for these people to break through from this is for God to reveal the truth to them, which I am hopeful of, but in the meantime, the Bible is right: there will be misery in our lives as long as we are here, because of the things that people such as the religious enthusiasts do. There is far too much to discuss to put into this article, but I’m sure I will think about it for a couple of years and then write an article about the subject.

Logic gets a bad rap because of simple things like “Well you can’t see and measure God, so that means science is a lie.” Well, you see, this is one instance where it is important to understand why logic is so important. That is faulty logic. It’s based on the fear of God, but it does not make sense for science to be evil simply because we can measure it but we can’t measure God. I don’t understand how science, which can make our lives happier, is evil, but God, who can also make our lives happier, is good. This is where lies start to entangle truth and make it hard to understand what is true and what is false. Only a divine revelation can explain to us what is true and what is false, and this is why I think that logic is so important. I think that logic is truly divine, in that it explains to us what truths are in the truest sense of the meaning of the word “truth.”

Once again, why some people are not capable of learning certain things or accepting certain truths and do not value learning, I do not know. But I do know that if I am to understand anything about the universe, as is the case for anyone else, then I must value my own education and I must use logic to obtain these truths because logic is as true as can be.

How we know something to be logical when something else is not, and how we can tell if someone isn’t using logic despite the fact that they say they are are topics for many other articles down the road, but I do know that if there are any logical statements to be had in the universe (as I know there are plenty), then we must accept these and use these, and I believe that because these things are so true and so helpful, that we must use our learning and education to learn about more of the logic truths that are in the universe that we might not quite be aware of so that we can add these to our repertoire as well, and our lives will only benefit because of the things that we can learn by using the infinite amount of logic that is out there and is only yet waiting to be discovered.

But we can do none of this if we do not learn, and people will not learn if they do not want to learn. Why I value education while others don’t is a big mystery of the universe, but Ido know that if I don’t value my education, I will not learn, and because I value understanding, I must value my education. Why I value education and why others don’t are subjects for many other articles, but if you want to have any understanding of the universe (as many people say they do as evidenced by all of the questions they ask, which is a good thing), you must do two things: you must accept logic, and you must value your own education enough to learn.

My biggest fear is getting older and to stop learning, like many adults do that never cared about school and just stop learning altogether. That is my biggest fear, and sometimes, it feels like one of those “inevitabilities” that adults talk about, but I’m not quite sure if all of these adults are truthful, despite their good intentions. This is one thing that I want to learn about, and one of the (I would guess to be) infinite number of reasons as to why education and logic are so vitally important if we are going to be happy. Perhaps some people can be happy without those things, but I look at all of the things that these two things can do for people and see that it can grant them happiness, whether or not they realize it (for instance, computers are logic machines, and it required some type of understanding to piece them together, and once that was done, happiness was had by all that use computers), so I know that for at least me personally, my happiness will not come unless I am allowed to use logic for all of the learning that I want to obtain in the world, and I think that many others could follow suit because although it could be argued that “ignorance is bliss”, I know this isn’t true for me because I love education so much, and I would imagine that if more people started following down my path, they would be pleasantly surprised at the things that they learned as well.

So if I can get people to love this as much as I do, that would be a good thing, even though this is not my ultimate cause. My ultimate cause is to learn for myself because it makes me happy, but logic dictates that there are only so many things you can do after you learn something, and one of those things is to share it with the world, which is what I’m doing. Whether or not people care is their own decision, but that is not why I am doing this. I am doing this for my own benefit and because I love it as much as anyone could love anything in the world, and if there is someone else in the world either like that that is reading this or if reading this causes someone else to be like that, that would be a great accomplishment indeed.

Children’s Backpacks – Need Of The Hour

Backpacks have become more than just camping gear, nowadays. They have become part style statement and part hold-alls, which are an integral part of the daily lives of most people. What makes backpacks appealing is the fact that one no longer has to lug around heavy bags in their arms, but has the convenience of putting all their stuff in the backpack and just slinging it on to their backs and get going.

With the wide variety of backpacks available in the market, each with an attractive style and color, backpacks are bound to be a hit with your child. They become your child’s companion, to be taken wherever he /she goes- be it to carry books to school, or toys to play at a friend’s place or even to carry their clothes for an overnight trip to their grandparent’s place. And you don’t even have to worry about the backpack getting torn or damaged as the material used for these backpacks is lightweight and durable and meant for everyday use. Thus, backpacks are not only a boon for your child, but for you as well.

In fact, many mothers now find it much more convenient to even carry a backpack instead of a diaper bag. There are companies who are in fact a step ahead of this change as they designing children’s backpacks, which double up as a diaper bag and adding these to their existing range of products. So you no longer have to juggle around with the baby in one hand and the diaper bag in the other. It gives you the freedom to have your hands free, while still being able to carry all items of need for your baby, on your back. In fact, now you can even choose a backpack in the color that you want, to suit your style and your baby’s needs.

As for the school going children, picking up their backpack on their own, gives them a sense of pride. With the increasing study load and the huge number of books prescribed in schools, their heavy satchels put so much strain on the shoulder and hip of these little children. A backpack thus proves advantageous in carrying school books and other supplies, as it distributes weight evenly on the shoulders and thus does not bend the body in an unnatural position.

The only thing that has to be paid attention to, is the quality of the material of the backpack, so that it can hold up against the wear and tear children usually subject it to. Apart from that one aspect of quality, let your child’s imagination run wild while picking out their backpack in their favorite colors and styles. Let them have fun deciding whether they like the blue backpack with Spiderman on it, or the red one with Winnie, The Pooh!

The older students, especially those in high school have different needs and thus their backpacks cater to those needs as they have separate pockets, specially designed for their cell phones, calculators, ipods and pens. Though the older students may take better care of their backpacks, yet, one must remain conscious of the quality of backpacks even here. With the world becoming so much more technology savvy, laptops have become an integral part of the lives of the youth of today. This is proven by the popularity of laptop backpacks, which have a special compartment for the notebook computer.

Buying children’s backpacks these days in not just a one- minute affair anymore. With the wide variety of children’s backpacks now available, you have to choose your child’s backpack carefully, after ascertaining your child’s needs and thoroughly checking the backpack’s quality. That would ensure not just your child’s satisfaction, but yours as well.

Anti-Aging Skin Products Are Better Than Surgical Procedures For Aging Skin

You may be tempted to take desperate measures to hide your age and any visible signs of aging that have already started to show such as wrinkles, lines and other signs of aging. However, instead of choosing surgical procedures, you can start planning a skin care regimen consisting of the most effective anti aging skin products.

Using anti aging skin products is definitely better than opting for surgical procedures because a surgical procedure has its own pitfalls in its aftermath in the form of scars and uneven skin pigmentation.

Aging is a natural process that cannot be shied away from but you can definitely delay the aging effects like wrinkle formation, sagging skin, etc. by using appropriate anti aging skin products. These products have been proved to provide your skin with the required nourishment so that you can successfully have youthful looks despite your age.

When you age, natural production of collagen and elastin become reduced. These are the two important proteins that are produced by your system to keep your skin firm, elastic and youthful looking.

Hence, when there is a depleted supply of collagen and elastin, your skin automatically loosens firmness and elasticity and that’s why the formation of wrinkles and lines occurs.

Therefore, the anti aging skin products you choose must contain the right formula to induce natural production of collagen and elastin within your skin cells. Improvement in the production of these two proteins will protect your skin from visible aging effects.

In fact, the only effective anti aging skin products contain natural ingredients and medical grade actives that deliver real therapeutic activity. Improving natural elasticity and collagen production is the only effectual way of reducing wrinkles and slowing down your skin’s aging process.

Of course, you should also ensure your anti aging skin products have the capacity to counter the free radicals that are generated when you expose yourself to sun’s UV rays and pollution. These free radicals are highly harmful for your health and especially, your skin. Besides, the sun’s UV rays have been found to accelerate the aging process and the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.

When you use anti aging skin products, you should remember that you cannot expect instant results because natural cell renewal takes time. If you use them consistently they will definitely show good results within a few weeks as the old skin cells are replaced with newer skin cells.

DM500 is also the most popular dreambox today. The Dreambox 500 runs on open source software found on various CVS site and compiling an image is fairly easy, the hard part is the programming of extra panels such as the blue button on Gemini Images. Fake dreamboxs are flooding the satellite tv market and you have to be careful when purchasing a dreambox online in the event it could be a fake! Make sure you check it it has the new hologram.

The Second most popular dreambox is the DM800 HD, which is of course Dream Multimedia’s first High Definition receiver on the market and currently the best seller “original” receiver from Dream.

Another well-liked dreambox model may be the DM8000 HD, the top of the range dreambox. The DM 8000 supports multiple High definition HD TV standards, including MPEG4/H.264. A better power supply device is actually incorporated that will finally solve all previous PSU-related difficulties for good. The USB 2 hardware port is also included as well as the regular RS232 serial port as well as Fast Ethernet interface. It appears like the front of the box may house a multi-function (ten) greeting card readers to be able to very easily load/access data, photos, mp3 etc. The Lcd display has increased in dimensions to 3,5x five.five centimetres. Open Linux system remains the operating system, however it will likely be packaged within an ‘easier to use form’.
