Expectations management should be a mandatory high school subject
This is a book review, not experience sharing because I have never gone to fashion school. While it may be tempting, fashion design is listed among the worst 5 useless degrees currently by articles on some big sites like Yahoo!… for what those opinions are worth. Fortunately for me, I have a great job not involving fashion design and am doing it for love, not money.
It was a beautiful moment seeing those kids sing America… until Jennifer Hudson got in front of them, screamed some notes, and took the focus away from them all.
Really. Who was this about?
Bad way to ruin a nice moment otherwise!
There are mass shootings frequently in the United States. Each time, there is an outcry for gun control laws. Each time, it dies like a victim in those shootings. 32 died at Virginia Tech. Nothing has changed there.
Naturally, the bigger the tragedy, the bigger the outcry. Yet, it has made no difference in the end, and we just wait for the next shocker.
What I want to know is how many people killed at an incident before you think any change to US gun control laws can be seen?
Do we need 50? Do we need to break the century barrier?
In September 2012, Lynden Dorval, a physics teacher in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, was fired for giving students a mark of zero for work that wasn’t handed in or tests not taken (CBC). It went against the school’s policy of not giving students zeroes, apparently, at Ross Sheppard High (and I’m sure at some other schools around the world).
Well, talk about STUPID school policies!
