How to Help Kids Find Their Aspirations Aspiration is often associated with a whimsical sense of dreaming about the future. The Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations, an independent non-profit organization, defines aspiration as the ability to set goals for the future while maintaining the inspiration in the present to reach those goals. When a student has dreams for the future and is actively working towards them, she’s in the “aspirational zone.” And in that state, student achievement increases. A lot of kids have big dreams about what they want to do as adults — whether that’s become a professional athlete or a teacher — but no idea of what it takes to get there. [RELATED READING: Six Ways to Motivate Students to Learn] To do that, Quaglia suggests focusing on three guiding principles: self-worth, engagement, and purpose. It’s incredibly important for students to know that someone cares about them, that their presence matters. Making sure kids are paying attention is another crucial factor. Related

This Company Has A 4-Day Work Week, Pays Its Workers A Full Salary And Is Super Successful By Bryce Covert "This Company Has A 4-Day Work Week, Pays Its Workers A Full Salary And Is Super Successful" Ryan Carson and Alan Johnson, co-founders of Treehouse CREDIT: Treehouse The 70 people who work at Treehouse, an online education company that teaches people about technology, only work four days a week at the same full salary as other tech workers. Carson has been working four-day weeks since 2006, when he founded his first company with his wife, he told ThinkProgress. Carson has since started three other companies at which he’s instituted this rule, Treehouse being the latest. And recruiting people in the first place is also easier thanks to the shorter week. Carson believes plenty of other companies could follow his example. There are some drawbacks. But there is some social science to back up the practice of limiting how much people put in at work each week. The dominant work culture in the United States is one of overwork, though.

Welcome to Discovery for Teens - Discovery for Teens 13 secrets que les compagnies aériennes vous ont toujours cachés Pourquoi la lumière de la cabine d’avion est-elle éteinte lors de la phase d’atterrissage ? Un passager peut-il déverrouiller les toilettes de l’extérieur ? Combien de minutes d’oxygène y a-t-il dans les masques à oxygène en cas de dépressurisation de la cabine ? Ce sont autant de questions qui alimentent les fantasmes et rumeurs, tout comme le fait qu’il y aurait une place plus sûre que les autres en cas d’accident. Ma réaction quand j’ai découvert ces réponses : Si vous en connaissez d’autres, je suis preneur ! 1. Cela peut paraître peu, mais pas de panique, on vous explique pourquoi : En cas de dépressurisation de la cabine, quand l’avion se trouve à son altitude de croisière (plus de 10.000 mètres pour les long courriers, un peu moins pour les vols courts), la pression atmosphérique descend de manière brutale et l’air se vide de son oxygène, créant des conditions insupportables pour les organismes humains.

Looking At Tears Under A Microscope Reveals A Shocking Fact. Share on Facebook One day Rose-Lynn Fisher wondered if her tears of grief would look different compared to her tears of joy, so she began to explore them up close under a microscope. She studied 100 different tears and found that basal tears (the ones that our body produces to lubricate our eyes) are drastically different from the tears that happen when we are chopping onions. The tears that come about from hard laughter aren’t even close to the tears of sorrow. Like a drop of ocean water each tiny tear drop carries a microcosm of human experience. Her project is called The Topography of Tears. Tears from laughing until crying Rose-Lynn Fisher Tears of change Tears of grief Tears from onions Joseph Stromberg of the Smithsonian’s Collage of Arts and Sciences explained that there are three major types of tears: basal, reflex, and psychic (triggered by emotions). Basal tears Tears of timeless reunion Tears of ending and beginning Tears of momentum, redirected Tears of release Tears of remembrance
