Education and Socialization

Introduction: Many problems exist that the young of today faces. It is a very difficult time. They are difficult days for any one, of any etria band, more I I believe that in special it is more difficult still for the young. In the young of today I see many problems and one of them is the current pressure. A research on the behavior of the young in the fields of the facultieses of the world was made all and the results had been always the same ones: The young is empty. They had asked to a president of one of these universities which age the biggest problem that it saw in the students of that campus, and it he answered? Empty people. They had asked to another president of a campus in the United States? Which is the biggest problem that you see in the campus of its university? It answered? Uncertainty. In fact I believe that it has a great uncertainty and a great emptiness of the part of the young of today.

This problem reaches the young of all the countries, is a frightful reality. The young is uncertain, is empty, does not know very as well as dealing with this situation why many of the times nor if give account of the real problem afflicts that them. They are suffering to the same pressures contemporaries. the word that more brings difficulties young to say it nowadays is not no long word, or of difficult it pronounces, nor so little unknown. It is in the truth a small word: The word ' ' No' ' Why it is difficult to say ' ' No' ' I Corntios 10:13 ' ' Not you sobreveio no temptation, seno human being; but faithful he is God, which will not leave that you are attemped above of what you can resist, before with the temptation will also give the way of exit, so that it you can suportar.' ' The temptations that you have that to face, are the same ones that the others face; but God fulfills its promise and he will not leave that you suffer temptations that do not have force to support.

Living In Harmony With Nature

We have no other choice but to come to a state of complete balance with all of nature. Or in good time, or under the influence of the nature of shocks, which still force us to be interrelated. This mutual relationship should be expressed to our right, a good internal relationship not only to the nearest city, country, continent, or a civilization, and to all mankind. Michael Laitman 'Humanity tossing around the globe, like a herd of antelopes, a terrible predator hunted. And nowhere is there was no escape …

' This could be the beginning of another sci-fi blockbuster, but it seems that Hollywood has moved into the real world. Humanity is indeed close to the described as – a global crisis broke out in a globalized world. But do not write in predators crisis. Let's face it. Kabbalists say that the essence of man – is the desire to have fun hardly takes into account the interests of others.

That is human nature – it is selfishness. Many argue – I do not like that. But watch out for themselves. In every moment of our lives motivates us only wish: 'I want'. No matter what: money emotional comfort, honor, knowledge, but – I want! And as soon as the surrounding fail to meet this 'want', we will immediately cease to love them, often testing them hatred, until the desire to destroy. And we have little interest in how our actions affect others. If we believe in them, just for their own comfort.

Orient Express

Station interesting, not a modern one, the station is a small museum 'Orient Express'. We went to the park Topkapi Palace, but decided that still did not have time to work around it to walk on the boat, put off the next day. We got to the Aya Sophia – the former patriarch of the Orthodox Cathedral, which was then rebuilt into a mosque. Now it has long been a museum. Cathedral affects the size and mosaics. We sat on the square between the cathedral and the Blue Mosque. Very cute, all the colors. Walked around the Blue Mosque, looked at the schedule.

Not at any time into it you can just enter. Hike into the postponed later. Already it was time to ship. Been there for about two hours. Very sincerely, look at the bridges across the Bosphorus.

At first worried that it is not time to take a seat at the board, but then they were freed because the weather was not hot, but blown away by boat, so all moved closer to the center, so that pofotkat still managed. In the summer, probably with a complicated. After boat ride back to the Blue Mosque. I did not expect that it will impress me so much. Inside, everything is very beautiful. And as far as I am far from Islam and religion in general, but inside the mosque is in a state full appeasement. So there is light and easy. People sit on the floor (carpet on the floor, be sure to take off one's shoes at the entrance), I think, read books. To me there was good, too, wanted to sit and think. Even a book has read in educational purposes. In the evening, yet managed to go to the Basilica Cistern. It seems that the time has already been closed, but it turned out that tickets are still selling. There is unusual. Cool and damp, but somehow fabulously. We got to the room, fell to sleep. I wanted to sit on the balcony, the Bosphorus view, but it was cold. They say, next to Taksim Square, live bad, very noisy, impossible to sleep. Nothing I do not remember, the truth may be here just the windows overlooking the Bosphorus, helped. That has turned out such a rich day. Myself wondering how so many things we have already.

Yana Kids

Good teacher, one that can interest children in learning and education, which becomes an authority for his players can hold their attention long enough (under the age features a group of children). But there are kids who may not be immediately opened the adult heart, but once you open, it leads to the strong attachment of the kids. Often – children from orphanages, which until certain age, seeing in every adult, smiling at them, so necessary a parent. Sometimes – it is children who lack the caress in the family, whose parents do not have enough time. This reaction from the child compensates nedolyublennost.

There are kids that are attracted to adults, because with them just interesting and informative than with peers. These kids can play with their peers, and with the kids, but for more serious Questions go to adults. An example of one girl – Yana. First, she became attached to his girlfriend from a group of kindergarten: she was jealous when she plays with others and not paying attention to her, she wanted to be that friend, it the letter "p" learned to speak because her friend started to train her to pronounce (John even before the beginning of her girlfriends to pronounce), she wanted to live where the girlfriend lives, etc. Time passed and John was walking to the music school. There she first became attached to the teacher of singing (in chorus), then – to the older (much) girl Alina. Attachment to the older girl has led to stress. When everyone had gone for the summer, John began to miss the eldest girl, yeah so that at night, woke up with a roar and the words: "I want to Aline!", and the morning were the tears and the name on his lips.

I had to calm the baby about a week. Next was an English teacher. Parting with the teacher was feel this girl as much for three sessions before the end, there were tears, and the last session was marred by hysterics. And after that, the stress of the girl worsened chronic disease of the gastrointestinal tract, and it became patient clinic. If your child is strongly attached to adults, find the first reason for this: either you are really something wrong Doda him emotionally, or too hard he had been treated, but can your child so vulnerable psyche. All these factors must be considered when such problems. Indeed, while the child is small, it can still cope, you can still distract and change the baby on something else. And ahead of adolescence, the first love. What will happen then? Assess the situation correctly, you may need advice child psychologist. Do not let things take their course!

Right Life

The response of adults? "Leave me alone, do not ask stupid questions!" That's no longer our children to grow, already in a fairly early age. Our education system also does not develop rights, but only pushes it into the "necessary" framework. Who cares? Yes, anyone. Just a teacher is more convenient to respond only to the usual questions, and everything else to prevent, as heresy. Exceptions, of course, there are, but they only prove the rule. Adults – a special conversation. Many have stopped not only learn, but simply ossified.

And forever! They always know the "correct answers" and always tell you "who is to blame and what to do." The truth, no happiness, no joy, for money it typically does not add. Again, there are exceptions, but then, they are rules to be violated. But to ask questions – the easiest way to self-development. Simple questions like "What I want to achieve in life?" Or "How can I get "will help you not just once or twice an unusual perspective on life can be developed just constantly asking," How else can use (you can put any familiar object or event)? "An example? Please. Tel. How many does now feature-rich mobile phone? So, the best way to change quickly in the right direction – is to ask lots of questions. Including the stupid. Answers to such "silly questions" will allow you to better know the nature of the person with whom you communicate.

And then, the question usually provides the "hook" to specify a different matter. And so on to infinity. If you have a question arose "just so", do not rely on his memory, because nothing just like in life is not happening.

Orange Juice

'Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler "Albert Einstein I had the unique opportunity. My wife, Keralin, was supposed to go to a meeting, and she asked me if I could stay with our seven-month daughter Dayan. 'Of course! "- It was my instant reaction. (I really like being a father, it is my most favorite pastime, and I always enjoy spending time with their children – even if they now have 28, 24 and 19 years). I played with Dayan, and everything went fine.

After a while she began to fidget and cry. I knew exactly how to deal with it! From the works of Mr. Hubbard about raising children, I knew that if the baby cries, it means one of three – he needed to change the diaper, the child was tired and needed rest, or he is hungry and needs to be fed. It always works. I checked the diaper – dry and clean.

She just woke up and still not tired. Hence it is hungry! (I was proud his brilliant powers of deduction). Keralin cooked us fresh squeezed orange juice. I took a bottle of juice and started to feed Dayan – she instantly calmed down. 'I'm done! " – I thought to myself. Diana sucked a little, threw a bottle and cry again, this time louder. I again checked the diaper – clean and dry (and no crumbs, pins, which might annoy her). Perhaps she was tired – I tried to put her to sleep, but it was "none eye.

Professional Translator

Perform transfers from time to time is not so difficult, but if you want to work in a professional translation agency, you must have the following key skills: knowledge of the source language and target language on a high level, basic knowledge of certain subjects, be disciplined and continuous improvement. Firstly, if you want to become a competent professional translator, you will need an excellent knowledge of at least two language. Knowledge of the source language is a basic requirement for novice translators. Take, for example, A-Y translation, before you convert the text to the Ukrainian translation need to text analysis: to understand what type of texts it is what it tells you to parse syntactic structures and stylistic devices, as well as the cultural connotations. Otherwise, get the exact translation will not work.

In addition, more than knowledge of the original language, must be proficient in the target language (in this case Ukrainian). When you have entrusted to complete the transaction, so that would make it clear to the experts certain area of knowledge that can read and speak only the target language, you should know well how to communicate and organize the text, what words and phrases should be used in the translation. In a nutshell, excellent knowledge of at least two languages – the foundation of a translator. Except knowledge of languages is also necessary to have knowledge of several topics on which you want to specialize. Plain text can be divided into genres according to the context and purpose of the text. For example, the language of news, research, the language Technology, etc. For example, for the translation of scientific and technical text may require knowledge of physics, medicine, architecture, electronics, law and others are also important background knowledge interpreter, so we need as much as possible to read different literature and follow the news. And the last requirement – a discipline.

If you want to translate a book from one language to another, you will need to complete returns. This task can be a real torture for untrained interpreters. If the book of 100,000 words, and assume that you translate 5000 words a day, then that would translate the book to work for 20 consecutive days. Newcomers will be very difficult early days, and they would need rest day or two, but if the timing was pressing need to work faster. Professional translators are always first consider the amount of work, then calculable, how many words or characters, they can move during the day and up schedule. Professional translators are not so simple as it might seem. For what would it be, you must constantly improve their language skills, gain professional knowledge by reading selected genres and topics, as well as to develop discipline, which is very useful in their work.

Count Razumovsky

Do you agree? Of course, I was willing and very happy an unexpected proposal: the chance to see real places and compare with what seemed to mind. We slowly walked along the quiet streets of the poorly attended, cluttered with modern machines and Landrin, looking at multi-colored buildings, a nod or a wave of her hand drew my attention to something on one, then on the other structure: – Here on this street ran Nabokov And there, we'll go on the other hand, there is a house in which he lived "Rembrandt >> Entering the courtyard house "Rembrandt>> I was seized with a feeling that this court I know very long time, but from afar the building of a blood-red brick caused a completely different feeling. – Why did you choose Rembrandt? Only because it was committed savage attack on his "Dana?>> – And so, too. In general, Rembrandt often attacked "Gyrostat>> different poshiba. – A search of Napoleon's general Duran – this is fiction, or some unknown legend? – At Austerlitz, was killed a French general Molran, Napoleon ordered him to roll up into a barrel of rum, then to build on his grave a monument to the fallen, but forgot about the barrel, and when it is already in Paris after many years, she cracked, then fell out of her well-preserved general with a mustache to his waist. I just assumed that this story could be repeated after Borodino. In the estate of Count Razumovsky, which previously was located Institute of Physical Education, I spent my childhood unsullied, and then there in 1812 really was the vanguard of Murat's why he was not burned during the fire, although the entire German settlement burnt down to ashes.

The Purpose Driven Life

If you’re experiencing the presence of God in all this, you have not understood anything. Do not praise God to feel good, but to do good. Our goal is not to have a feeling, but continual awareness of the reality that God is always present. That is the lifestyle of worship. By continuous meditation The second way to build a friendship with God is thinking about his Word throughout the day.

That is called meditation, and the Bible repeatedly exhorts us to meditate on who God is, what he has done and what has said. It is impossible to be friends with God if we do not know what he says. We can not love God if we do not know, and we can not know unless we know His Word. She says that God “revealed himself to Samuel and informing him of his word” (1 Samuel 3:21). While we can not spend twenty-four hours studying the Bible, we can think about it during the day, remember verses we’ve read or memorized, and reflect on them. Sometimes it is believed that meditation is a difficult, mysterious ritual practiced by mystics and monks in isolation.

However, meditation is simply thinking with concentration: something anyone can learn and use anywhere. When we turn him in the head with a problem, we say we have a concern. When you think of the Word of God and you turn on your head, we call it meditation. If you know how to worry, you know how to meditate! Instead of thinking with emphasis on your problems, you need to link the attention on your problems with Bible verses. The more we meditate on the Word of God, you less to worry about. The friends have their secrets, and God will provide its secrets if you develop the habit of reflecting on his word during the day. God told Abraham his secrets, did the same with Daniel, Paul, the disciples and other friends. When reading the Bible and listen to a sermon or a recording, do not forget what you heard when you go. Develop the practice of reviewing the truth in your mind, reflect on what you’ve read or heard, give back to the head. The more time you spend going over what God said, more will understand the “secrets” of this life that go unnoticed for many people. The Bible says: “Being friends with God is the privilege of those who revere him, alone with them he shares the secrets of his promises” (Psalm 25:14 – ADB). Do not wait until tomorrow. Begin today to practice a constant conversation with God and continuous meditation on his Word. Prayer allows us to speak with God, meditation allows him to speak to us. Both are essential to being friends of God.
