In every corps there are older members that spend their time telling false tales about how scary tour is, but one thing they never lie about is hitting a wall.
A wall has many varying long and short term affects on a person. When first faced with one most rookies get extremely discouraged and go home. However the ones that stay and try to push through don't have it any better. The rookies that stay have to deal with different issues from tour including their wall. All of the different affects of a wall wear down on people although in the end that person has to fight it or go home.
Anyone who has ever hit a wall says that crashing is the easily part but overcoming it is the real mountain to climb. The base to overcoming it is being surrounded by really supportive people. Having a good staff and corps to be around is one of the best support groups to have, because no one else knows exactly what it's like. In the end the only person who can make the final push is the person facing the way. Finally getting through it is a huge accomplishment because it is something that, that in the end did on their own.
Facing a wall is like facing your worst demons. Stories from veterans and alumni make it seem almost impossible to do. Even with all the different affects a wall has on everyone. A way to push through is best found with staff and fellow corps members, and especially by one pushing themselves. In the end triumphing over any wall is the best thing anyone can do.…...

Poorly trained assessors are unlikely to be objective in their observations, will misinterpret or inadequately record evidence, probably come to the wrong conclusions and, if that weren't bad enough, the chances are they'll lack the techniques to provide effective feedback to the candidates they have so misjudged. Lindy Strudwick's collection of activities provides a means of training assessors to an appropriate level of skill, quickly and cost-effectively.

I Read It but I Don't Get It

...I read it but I don’t get it[1] The title of my article is a title of a book by Cris Tovani but more of that later! I want to explore why I feel that Ken Rowe’s literacy report misses the complexity of literacy development in young people– at least from my secondary perspective. Of course he covers some bases and on the surface suggests a balanced approach. He is also right that teachers need to be better educated about reading practices. However, the emphasis on phonics which has been widely reported in the media appears disproportionate to its usefulness. Some students can manage to read and spell without phonics so why do we need to occupy their brains with phonemes or phonic practices. Others need them. The informed primary teacher differentiates accordingly. What Ken Rowe does not focus on is the literacy needs of young people in secondary schools where decoding is less of a problem than comprehension. For many students reading is meaningless – particularly fiction. The Four Resource Model of Allan Luke and Peter Freebody[2] outlines what students need to do as they read: Effective literacy draws on a repertoire of practices that allow learners, as they engage in reading and writing activities, to: • break the code of texts: recognising and using the fundamental features and architecture of written texts including: alphabet, sounds in words, spelling, conventions and patterns of sentence structure and text • participate in the......

...the text, the man would say, "I think it's the best thing to do. But I don't want you to do it if you don't really want to," where it is clear that he is still giving the woman some options although the American has made his choice final. From the beginning of the story, the American’s decision was made clear to the readers that he wanted no baby, no family, no responsibilities, and only pleasure. Just like what he said, “That's the only thing that bothers us. It's the only thing that's made us unhappy.” It is also seen many times in the text that he would always try to divert the conversation whenever the woman becomes too serious with the issue of abortion so he asks her to drink more beer with him; this line being frequently repeated: "Should we have another drink?" Jig, the woman in the text, had actually took into consideration the idea of giving away her child, as seen in the lines "Oh, yes. But I don't care about me. And I'll do it and then everything will be fine,” just because she wanted not to disappoint him. As the succeeding events in the story suggested the idea of having another person involved in their relationship, the man told Jig that it is fine with him to “go through with it” if it would mean anything to her. In return, the girl responded "Doesn't it mean anything to you? We could get along.” However, the man argued and said, "Of course it does. But I don't want anybody but you. I don't want anyone else,” and in these phrases the love of the man for......

...analogy between school and the workplace, stating that school should be made relevant and interesting because bored workers won't produce high quality work. According to Glasser (1990), there are two different management styles; boss-management and lead-management. Boss-management style is based on coercion and leadmanagement on cooperative action. students without coercion. Effective teachers manage Coercion begets coercion, which turns the students into adversaries thus reducing the 27 opportunity to motivate. Glasser (1990) further explains his control theory by stating that all motivation comes from within oneself and not from outside. However, what happens outside has a lot to do with what one chooses to do, but the outside events don’t cause the behavior. information. Shanker (1990) adapted the principles of economics to the theories of student motivation. The free market theory All one gets from the outside is (capitalism) and the theory of the planned or command economy (communism), according to Shanker, can be utilized in directing people toward action. Shanker further stated that school incentives are aligned incorrectly and teachers are not rewarded for improving student outcomes. students have only one incentive--a diploma. The Shanker writes that incentives do work; they are a major motivator of the behavior of individuals and systems.

...thought like this for a very long time, I just couldn't bare it. I was eventually taken in by the Acid Survivors Foundation, who put me in contact with Mrs. Kaniz Almas Khan. Through her I got a new life and started dreaming again. I no longer want to die. Now I want to live. Apa gave me this strength. It is because of her that I can move forward again.” She added, “Kaniz Apa is more than just my boss; she is like my mother. She takes care of me, us. Even though she is so busy, she takes the time to look after us, to find out about us. She genuinely cares. She has also given me freedom. And because I have gone through so much and have found out so much from my experiences, I now work as a counselor. I help others who have suffered like me and don't know what to do, because I have been through something like what they have gone through. I know what to do, where to go, who to see. When these victims come to us, Kaniz Apa gives me time off from my job to help them, advise them, and to be a big sister to them.” At this point, she broke down. She started crying out of relief and gratitude. “Without her I would have killed myself long ago.” I talked with many boys and girls like Shabana who work there. All of them told me similar stories. About how Kaniz Almas Khan helped them and saved their life. Without her most of them would now be lost and even dead. Yet Kaniz Almas Khan's journey did not start out on this path. She started off in the drawing room of her house, where she......

...suffering more from concussions and brain disease then an adult or child. To start off, as most people know concussion talk in the sports media is very high. High school-age athletes are more likely than younger kids to have sports-related concussions, but the rate of such injuries in both groups is on the rise, a new U.S. study suggests. From 1997 to 2007, emergency department visits for concussion in kids aged eight to 13 playing organized sports doubled, and the number of visits increased by more than 200 percent in older teens. (American Academy of Pediatrics). According toThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that teens have higher risk of getting a concussion. Currently, the only way we can lower these rates is if teens don’t start football at a young age. In addition, American sports have shown that head injuries such as concussions are common for teens to get. Teenagers who suffer a concussion are more sensitive than adults or children to its aftereffects. The number for 14 to 19-year-olds jumped to 22,000 in 2007 from 7,000 in 1997; and for 8- to 13-year-olds it went to 8,000 from 3,800. And about half the injuries were sports-related. Kids suffer concussions because they try to out play a kid and may hit them a little too hard giving a kid a severe concussion. Lastly, to inform you, kids that have repeated head trauma will cause irreparable brain disease. This needs to change so that kids can have a long lasting life with no......

...Inside Petrobras, opinion on how to respond to Ecuador’s actions was divided. One group was inclined to rely on the Brazilian government to assist in fashioning a broader political solution, similar to what happened in 2006 in response to the Bolivian government’s changes to Petrobras’s gas exploration and development contracts with that country. Another group advocated that, as a public company, Petrobras should act accordingly and seek compensation through international arbitration, perhaps at the International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes (“ICSID”). (See Exhibit 2 for ICSID’s member States.) Petrobras When founded in 1953, Petrobras, Brazil's state-controlled oil company, was a vital symbol of national pride. "The oil is ours" was an oft-repeated slogan. The company was incorporated as a mixed-capital company1 with a government-granted monopoly for all crude oil and gas production, refining and distribution in Brazil. In 1997, Brazil enacted the so-called “Petroleum Law” to end the oil monopoly and open the oil and gas markets in Brazil to foreign investment. Restrictions on ownership by non-governmental entities of shares in Petrobras were lifted and foreign ownership of shares was permitted. In response to these changes, in August 2000, Petrobras was partially privatized through a listing of its shares (ADRs*) on the NYSE. As part of the company’s new strategy, it also sought additional opportunities to expand abroad. Petrobras’ International......
