    20 Life Skills Not Taught In School

    in Entertainment

    http://Successful Student A resource for students to excel.


    From http://successfulstudent.org/


    The following is an excerpt from: Successful Student


    An education should involve learning life skills that a person will carry with them after college in order to navigate relationships and careers and be a well-rounded, successful person. This article has compiled 20 life skills not taught in school, which are valuable in life in general. Though high school and college is excellent in teaching many valuable skills, our current academic curriculum doesn’t teach many aspects necessary to succeeding and thriving in life in general, such as financial responsibilities and investments, how to think logically–retaining information and not merely temporarily memorizing information, and how to apply such abilities to real-world scenarios which are bound to occur.

    What's Going on?

    in Entertainment

    Overt racism on college campuses, Congress trying to usurp the Presidents authority, ongoing wars and massive unemployment. In 1971 Marvin Gaye asked the question "What's Going on?". in the year 2015 it seems as though that question is as relevant as ever.

    Zaiyah's House welcomes the phenomenal Antoinette Montague

    in Entertainment

    http://www.antoinettemontague.com/bio.php


    Antoinette Montague has a love of humanity and music to bring joy to people. She has played most of the major jazz clubs in New York, and recently returned from Israel with the 46-piece Ashdod Orchestra, and is on her way to to perform with the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra in Russia.


    Antoinette feels just as appreciated here at home by people who enjoy the spirit she loves to bring inside of her music. Jimmy Heath says, “Antoinette has the instrument, delivery and enunciation, when performing, that touches my soul.”


    Jazz Woman to the Rescue is a foundation in the works.It's historic as it visits Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and living Jazz Heroes on the band stand.


    There are 2 elements to the Jazz Woman foundation. "The Play it Forward" program of encouraging people to take old instruments and give them to disenfranchised children.


    The second prgram is "Put it Back!" The push for citizens to contact local schools in their community to ask if they have an arts education program for their students. If not, we as taxpayers insist they Put it Back! into the curriculum.

    But she's married!

    in Entertainment

    This is an excerpt from: When Single Men Have Affairs With Married Women


    February 12, 2014


    © COPYRIGHT 2006, 2007, 2013 Recovering Wayward Enterprises, LLC


    Why do some single men have affairs with married women?


    No Strings Attached Sex/It’s Easier.   Unlike most women, single men often love having access to someone who is passionate, sexual and really wants nothing more from them.  On a purely physical level, most men are going to enjoy their affairs with married women.  You’re bringing out her inner tigress. You’re unlocking a woman full of sexual desire who is not getting her needs met at home, so of course the one night (or many nights) of sex is going to be unbelievably great. There are no strings attached to it, either, so it’s just fantastic sex with seemingly no consequences. This to me is the most obvious reason.  Men would love to have a lover who asks almost nothing of them.  The married woman won’t expect presents or moan if he forgets to phone her.   Anything goes.  Anything happens. Nothing is forever. You don’t need to call her. You don’t need to keep in touch. You don’t need to meet the parents and you won’t miss a single bowling night out with your buddies. No strings attached.And it’s easy, usually passionate, sex on tap!

    What is Stalking?

    in Entertainment

    http://www.loveisrespect.org/is-this-abuse/types-of-abuse/what-is-stalking


    You are being stalked when a person repeatedly watches, follows or harasses you, making you feel afraid or unsafe. A stalker can be someone you know, a past boyfriend or girlfriend or a stranger. While the actual legal definition varies from one state to another, here are some examples of what stalkers may do:



    Show up at your home or place of work unannounced or uninvited.
    Send you unwanted text messages, letters, emails and voicemails.
    Leave unwanted items, gifts or flowers.
    Constantly call you and hang up.
    Use social networking sites and technology to track you.
    Spread rumors about you via the internet or word of mouth.
    Make unwanted phone calls to you.
    Call your employer or professor.
    Wait at places you hang out.
    Use other people as resources to investigate your life. For example, looking at your facebook page through someone else’s page or befriending your friends in order to get more information about you.

    The story of the 5 Blunts

    in Entertainment

    http://www.perkel.com/politics/issues/pot.htm


    Excerpt from the online artical:


    Marijuana
    Telling Teenagers the Truth
    about Smoking Pot


    I think it's wrong for society to lie to teenagers about smoking marijuana. I find it frustrating when I hear ads from places like "Partnership for a Drug Free America" running commercials against Pot that just aren't true. I don't like it when people warn teens about using "Marijuana and Cocaine" when Pot is almost harmless and Cocaine is a dangerous drug. When people lie to teens about Marijuana then teens assume they are lying about other drugs too and I think they are more likely to do drugs they shouldn't do. So I think it's time to come clean and tell the truth. If teens are going to do drugs, they should have truthful and accurate information. So I have decided to tell it like it is. Best decisions are made when the real facts are presented.


    For those parents who are reading this in horror, I am not trying to get kids to smoke Pot. What I am doing here is trying to tell them the truth, and tell you the truth about a widely misunderstood substance. This is an opportunity for everyone to have a better understanding of reality. If you can't handle reality, stop reading this web page. There are plenty of other web sites that will tell you what you want to hear. This is not one of them.
