Not Everything That Is Learned Is Contained in Books

...“Not everything that is learned is contained in books.” Compare and contrast knowledge gained from experience with knowledge gained from books. In your opinion, which source is more important? Why?       As the world is globalizing, we see many changes around us. The knowledge we learned once from books, is now more important to experience. However the question that strikes every mind today is which source is more important? Gaining knowledge from experience or from books? People may have different opinions. Admittedly, both have advantages and they are important. We can’t reject the fact that ‘Not everything that is learned is contained in books. “If we say that we are trying to learn how to swim, we can’t learn the whole things specifically without experiences. This tells us how important experiences are. But as far as I am concerned, gained knowledge from books is more important due to many reasons.   Firstly, gaining knowledge from books is more important is because we can’t experience everything in the world. There are lots of things that we learn through our life and we can’t learn them all by experiencing. Nevertheless, if we find particular books that include the information we are looking for, it will help us understand better. For instance, how could possibly we learn about forefathers without books? How could we also learn about the history of our countries? Obviously, it is impossible to learn these things by experiences. Thus, gaining knowledge......

I admit it's not much of a story. I was interested, she says. He doesn't respond and takes his drink to the window. It's darker now but still snowing. She's been gone ten years and these are the stories I still remember about her, he says. I don't even remember the night of your birth, for God's sake. He takes a deep gulp from his drink and stares out the window. The darkness seems to grow with each minute. That's okay, it was so long ago, I – But she stops herself from saying more. She sits quietly and reflects upon her nails. He watches her in the window's reflection. He sighs heavily. She lifts her head. She looks out past him into the darkness. Then she asks if she is going to get to see the city, after all. He says, not tonight, how about tomorrow? She does not reply. I'm going to bed, she says. He continues to stare out the window and does not even seem to hear her. She gets up and goes to her room. He looks out into the cold darkness, remembering the times they used to have together as a family. He sighs and reaches for the bottle. It was going to be a long night after all.

First for Everything

...Ashlee McGrown IS 101 Education and Social Change November 19, 2012 Final Project: First-Generation College Students First for Everything No two people have the same experiences due to the fact that every person is different, whether it be a difference in background, education, or skin color, something separates everyone. When attending college, you become exposed to to even more differences between everyone. Students come from various backgrounds, including some students being the first in their family to attend college. These particular students are also known as first-generation college students. The hard-work and dedication of these students should not go unnoticed because they struggle differently due to them going into college blind in a sense. They do not know what to expect when going into college because proper guidance is lacked which leaves them at a disadvantage opposed to their counterparts who have family that are experiencing or have experienced the college life. However, a negativity or positivity of a person background does not determine their future, but rather the hardworking ethic and dedication it takes to succeed. “Fischer (2007) reported that black and Hispanic students are more often FGS than their white or Asian counterparts, and they also tend to have lower socioeconomic status backgrounds. Fischer added that the students also experience another disadvantage of being minorities on predominantly white campuses.” (Confronting......

The Story of Everything

...There are countless theories behind the story of everything, the story of how we exist and why. If one is not a believer in science, typically the next best choice would be religion, and the concept of a higher spiritual entity or "god". The article by Stephen Hawking unleashes a brilliant statement about how science is inherently progressive and religion is inherently conservative. Religion is relatively close minded and illogical, and is based on fundamental beliefs as opposed to empirical facts. Clearly we know that God or Gods is (are) not necessary to imagine the beginning of the universe, in our modern understanding science lays out the groundwork for what I believe to be the most viable explanation of the universe. Although, I am only a fraction of the percentage of humans who believe in these theories, as many of us do need some sort of higher entity or religion to put the universe into perspective. With so many different opinions and beliefs about the story of everything, we can start to understand the why and the how of these beliefs and empathize with the believers. In the last century alone we have begun to strung together more scientific facts about our existence than ever before, and are beginning to answer the questions that have perplexed our ancestors for so many years. Now here is the tricky part, we can understand the concept of molecules and the universe, but science states that all of this simply materialized out of nothing, otherwise known as "The Big...

When you think of Oktoberfest your mind might gravitate towards Germany. Little do people know that Oktoberfest in La Crosse is the second largest Oktoberfest festival in the world.

Perspectives on Happiness in "Everything Is Illuminated"

...Bryce Bartlett 05/04/13 Perspectives on Happiness in Everything Is Illuminated In the letter from Alex’s Grandfather that makes up the final chapter of Jonathan Safran Foer’s book Everything is Illuminated, Grandfather writes the character Jonathan to tell him about the event that established his grandson Alex as the primary caretaker of his mother and younger brother. Grandfather claims that of all things that he could wish for his grandsons, he would give everything to ensure that their lives are peaceful; he places peace above money and even love. This is an insightful perspective on happiness, as it suggests that happiness is both subjective and yet relatively objective, a theme that recurs throughout the novel. Happiness is subjective in that it is experienced differently by each person according to their experiences, and yet objective in that there are certain environments where it cannot occur. For Grandfather and presumably the author Foer, those who are oppressed by violence are robbed of their right to the pursuit of happiness. Throughout the novel, Foer portrays people struggling to be happy in a variety of circumstances: Yankel as a social exile and father to Brod, Brod as the strange and lonely miracle child and wife to the saw-blade damaged Kolker, younger Alex as he strives to create a life for himself and his brother Igor, and Jonathan Safran Foer in his search for his past, as well as many other characters. With each character, Foer explores what it is...

Fame Isn't Everything

...Fame Isn’t Everything Chloe McGlaun Galveston College Fame Isn’t Everything Kurt Cobain was born in Aberdeen, Washington on February 20, 1967. When Cobain turned eight, his childhood was no longer filled with happiness due to his parents divorce. After receiving a guitar for his fourteenth birthday, Cobain found an outlet for his emotions. In 1987, Cobain and his friends formed a band, which became known as Nirvana. Two years later, they came out with their first album called Bleach.

Courtney Love, a singer in the punk-rock band Hole, and Cobain began having relations. After Love became pregnant, a few months after their engagement, the two got married in Hawaii. Two years later while Nirvana was touring their third album, Cobain attempted suicide by overdosing on pills. After his near death experience and continued use of drugs, Cobain’s friends felt that an intervention was needed.

Cobain ran away two days after being admitted and killed himself, leaving behind a suicide note addressed to his imaginary, childhood friend. Although, Cobain was never diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder or MDD, he showed very obvious symptoms (Kurt Cobain and his battle with Mental Illness, 2014).

...cost mouse traps are sold. There are also poisons that are sold which are a danger to pets and animals as well as the mice they are supposed to kill. There are also other versions of live catch mouse traps out there. An example of one of Trap-Ease’s competition is d-CON who offers both baits and traps. They actually also offer a version of a no touch mouse trap in which you don’t have to touch the mouse after you have trapped it. They are selling this for $4.29 which is higher then the suggested retail price for the Trap-Ease mouse trap which is $2.99. This would suggest that Trap-Ease has priced lower then some of its competitors which will give it a pricing advantage. Companies such as Havahart offer traps which humanely catch everything from mice to voles and shrews and are competition for the humane factors of the Trap-Ease trap. Other competitors include: Victor, JT Eaton and Riddex. 6) How would you change Trap-Ease’s marketing strategy? What kinds of control procedures would you establish for this strategy? The first thing I would do to change Trap-Ease’s marketing strategy would be to increase the amount of people in their marketing team.
