Homeschooling enrollment skyrocketing as parents seek to protect children from public school brainwashing (NaturalNews) There is less faith now in the public education system than there ever has been. Homeschooling has increased by 75 percent in the last 14 years, according to a recent report in Education News. Homeschooling is growing seven times faster than a K-12 public education. Researchers predict that the homeschooling boom will continue to explode over the next 10 years, as parents seek to provide their son/daughter with a better education, one that is less controlling and less controlled. Now seeing that the federal government's no child left behind act has made public education into a factory line, more parents are finding alternative educations at home. As the government continues to intrude, it will be wise for parents to take a closer look at the looming common core standards that states are now adopting from the Obama Administration.

For Sociologists there is much discussion about the effect this has had on UK society and the national identity.

Don't Multitask: Your Brain Will Thank You The ability to juggle work is a standard job requirement. Researchers have another name for this supposedly desirable skill, however: chronic multitasking. If this sounds more like an affliction than a resumé booster, that's because research has shown again and again that the human mind isn't meant to multitask. Even worse, research shows that multitasking can have long-term harmful effects on brain function. In a 2009 study, Stanford researcher Clifford Nass challenged 262 college students to complete experiments that involved switching among tasks, filtering irrelevant information, and using working memory. Nass and his colleagues expected that frequent multitaskers would outperform nonmultitaskers on at least some of these activities.

Aspartame is, by far, the most dangerous substance on the market that is added to foods. Aspartame is the technical name for the brand names NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, and Equal-Measure.

Cannabis Prohibition The debate on whether or not to make cannabis legal has been a subject of controversy for decades. On one side many people think it should remain illegal as they believe it has links to psychosis, lung cancer and is a gateway towards harder drugs.

In my opinion I believe it should be legalized as it is an attack on personal choice and would benefit society in many other ways.
