Semi-trailer trucks are unique vehicles that require special consideration whenever you approach them on the road. Because of their large size and heavy weight, with some weighing as much as 40 times the average car, it is important to behave cautiously whenever you are driving near a semi-trailer truck. One of the primary hazards of driving near a large truck is getting caught in the truck’s “no-zone.” The no-zone is the large blind spot area around the truck where the driver cannot see you.
Avoiding the No-Zone
Knowing a truck’s blind spots can help you avoid the no-zone and reduce your risk of a serious truck accident. Semi-trailer trucks possess blind spots on all sides of the vehicle, some of which are in areas that a driver may not predict. When driving near a semi-trailer truck, be sure to avoid these no-zones:
- Directly behind the trailer truck
- The left side of the truck from the cab to about halfway down the trailer
- The right side of the truck from the cab to the back of the trailer
- Directly in front of the truck
While truck drivers have large mirrors to help them spot nearby traffic, these do not cover all areas around a truck. Tailgating or riding directly alongside a truck could prevent you from being seen and could cause an accident if the truck driver attempts to change lanes or slams on the brakes without noticing your presence. Likewise, cutting directly in front of a truck could startle the driver or prevent him or her from seeing you, creating an accident risk.
Private high schools in Saudi Arabia have undergone further investigation due to a violation about prohibiting women from participating in any sports tournament. Sports tournament are considered to be legal in the Arab country but admitting women in any kind of sport is considered illegal. Six Jeddah private high schools violated the ministry law as they held on a sport event involving 200 females last December 8, 2010. Since almost all sports require less covered dress code, participation of Women is strictly prohibited due to the Hijab and Burqa. “We don’t have any regulations that say that it’s okay for girls’ schools to hold sports classes or training,” said Ahmed Al-Zahrani, director of girls’ education in Jeddah. The sport event was shocking and was opposing the written laws of Islam. Saudi Arabia is very strict regarding women in Olympics and considers it a violation of the Islamic Law Sharia. Women cannot participate in public football match either.
Though some women where considered to be heroine and model for Arab women who wants to break free from the restrictive roles, just like Hassiba Boulmerka, however more fundamentalist condemned such practice. Some schools worldwide offer possibilities for Moslem women sports participation, secondary students are highly prohibited to join any sports event. The tournament hosted by Effat University which included basketball, badminton, athletics, and swimming have received a letter from the Ministry of Education. Farida, Farsi, Al-Hamra Schools Chairwoman was surprised to receive a letter of interrogation regarding the reason of the sport event and why was it intended to be held at the first place. She also said to be receiving letters and calls from fundamentalists, conservatives, and sheikhs telling her that it wasn’t a wise decision at the first place to hold such sport event because it was violating the rules.
Parents of students in private school of Edinburgh that went bursting last week have just come along into this business plan of bid towards saving it. Those groups of families together with this children of St. Margaret’s School have just came along with this proposal through a very radical surgery that they have believe would keep them open in a through manner. Group of banking, the marketing professionals and property are there to meet their receivers KPMG. It was also announce last week that this school will be close on June 29. The school that been well known as KPMG after running through their financial difficulties and those teaching staff were also informed last Thursday afternoon with an email that been sent to the entire parents in the evening. Pete Cochrane who is the current economist with this Royal Bank in Scotland who also got two children in the school have told the BBC of Scotland news website that he also believe that it could still be saved.
Mr. Cochrane who lives of Dalkeith stated he was in school last Friday morning during the time that there children were entirely told that school will be close, some were students were in quite misery and others have seen crying in a hysterical manner that created the day as quite worst. Even in that matter, the career builders school administration still came up with a business plan that been believe will work through cutting costs of this private school savagely and even raising on its fees. There will also be number of things or aspect that can be done that includes whip round of its parents, raising of newer financial backers, a mere approach towards generous benefactors and even selling on nursery and cutting of its staff. It entirely involves a very radical surgery. This would be consider as much easier to move children to some other educational learning institutes but at some point there will be no similar provision of Edinburgh especially that Loretto is now the closest but have about £6,000 term. Those schools that includes nursery got 397 students and about 143 staff, 69 of its teaching and 74 of the non-teaching. Senior pupils will be paying about £2,456 per term and boarders for about £2,628 per term. KPMG spokesman stated that their provisional liquidator is very much happy upon meeting on with this consortium especially upon listening to its proposals.
Coming out of this high school, those graduates who have entirely decided of extending out their education program should able to select among two collegiate paths as either private school or public school. Meanwhile this dilemma have also came along into this factor for some learners-athletes intended for National Signing Day; the private school selection becomes much slimmer for the prospects of hoping to play under this brighter spotlight of Bowl Championship Series (BCS) football conference. Like most learners who will be entering college education, the athlete’s decision between the private or public will not anymore be needed upon marking or even breaking on its future. There are various public education college that can entirely create a comparable chances that will serve as private school setting counterparts and for the average college learners as mere amount of finances will be saved through joining state run schools that can entirely pile up for over four till five year stints.
But for educational scholarship brandishing the athletes, prices of this tuition fees will not entirely be necessary especially if it got a huge concern. Pressing issue for gridiron celebrities is concern whether or not this private school football team will eventually turn their respective names upon continually signing on this day blurb towards the household conversation. When considering various numbers of national titles that been collected through this private schools ever since the start of BCS era, scale tips will dramatically attends one of excellent public universities that been scattered just around the nation. Just only five private school teams have entirely maintained of winning on this percentage as above 500 for just over the past three years and just only two educational learning institutes will actually create a national championship game ever since 1998. However, various colleges got enough football talent towards this vigorous stirs upon their conference pot in the moment of notice. Meanwhile these private schools have often got lost unto shuffle due to public schools brigade that constantly lift AFCA National Championship Trophy, they must not be as quickly to over look upon. With that, let us see now on how these BCS private schools will be rank among for each other and even also try of spotting any possible national championship candidates that lurks somewhere of its meadows.
Independent educational learning institutes are already been struggling towards the recession that occur upon increasing the number levels of suffering in this fall season according to the research that been shown. As a result, some have already imposing towards paying over their freezes of their educational staffs and even trying to cut down their costs through saving on their heat, lighting and even continually building on their maintenance. Aside of that also, some other private schools are also been offering some discounts in order to attract this new families and as well taking over several children from abroad for survival. According to the survey that been conducted by this Association of Educators and as well Lecturers of this (ATL) that been asked that about already more than 1,500 from its members had already been working on towards this independent educational learning institutes in regards to the effects of their recession.
Almost a third had already stated that these educational learning institutes got some fewer pupils than been compared last year. With that, about similar proportion have already been the same and about half of it had more. Yet, this entirely compares towards a unfavourable manner from the last year during the time that they had fewer pupils and aside of that quarter already got same number and as well half of it had lots of it. With that, this head educators and as well sectors of this entire had already become reluctant upon admitting over this economic downturn that already got its impact. But to those educators that got a fee charging educational learning institutes had already provided an insight upon coping it thoroughly. They have also reported that those learners who were been lost into this grammar schools together with the high performing state educational learning institutes and recruit several foreign learners particularly from those Far Eastern towards compensating on. Aside of that, there education program institutes also been offering some incentives upon keeping and as well attracting pupils that includes those discounted and deferred fees, educational scholarships, and deferred fees. Others had also changed on their entry criteria and even taken on several pupils over these behavioral concerns or some special needs. They have responded that losing on some learners due to financial reasons also serve as gaining more towards an expensive competitors of their area. With that, standards have already falling on as a result of taking the entire comers and got no longer benefiting upon the selection towards suitable candidates. With that, supporting their educators staff serve as overstretched and they will be coping in order not be disruptive to their learners and even got a larger classes in the lower end of their educational learning institutes.
Educators have also reported that one of their first areas in which this educational learning institutes saves on their finances was their staff educator’s salaries. Almost one six of it have already been force of taking a pay cut and about fifth of it got a frozen salary. With that, already more than two fifths of their educators stated that there already been a cutting upon spending over their educational learning institutes just this year and about almost three of this 10 stated there were already been fewer educators that been compared just a year ago. More individuals are expecting to have this staffing with several aspects that been working on towards these longer hours or just having a higher numbers of these children on their respective classes. Some other comments are also includes an entire payment of this pay freezing, got a poor standard upon building over their care, and the meals are quite poor. Aside of those parents will be paying over some extras towards their top fees and number of these pupils had already been fallen towards this quality of learners that seems to on the lower portion. With that, selectivity seems to be reducing upon getting some bums of their seats. During this tough economic climate, the story of this independent educational learning institutes seems of reflecting what been happening of their economy in general matter due to the mere fact that some schools are now struggling towards keeping them afloat while others are thriving on as they will be picking up their students from their respective schools that keeps of folding or as their parents will be moving on towards their children towards cheaper options. With that, members are continually working to this respective schools that been considered as realistic in regards to their financial pressures that this educational learning institutes are under upon. But these schools must not use any of this recession as being an excuse in order to cut on their salaries or just worsen their terms and status.
Just recently, its been announce that the New York City had already been spending over $100 million towards this private educational learning institutes that are intended for special education program and to its students last year. But it got an increase that is more than $13 million to over its previous years according to WNYC’S Beth Fertig. With that, those students that got some disabilities are now entitled to join or attend in this private schools as to be considered as taxpayer expense if ever they can prove that their educational need are not being meet in this public educational learning institutes. It’s been said that last year, the city had already spent over about $102 million towards their private educational learning institute tuition. With that, this
Characteristics of the Different Types of Personality the 4 main temperments
Understanding the 4 archetypes The notion of the four prototypic personalities is actually quite old concept, dating at least as far back as the great Greek physician Hippocrates (370 BC), and reinterpreted by many otheres, even going so far as to interpret them in terms of animal personas. The four main catagories are: Sanguine Melancholy Choleric Phlegmatic A great resources for more information can be found in Florence Littauer’s books, such as:
sanguine Sanguines are those whom you might describe as expressive, light-hearted or fun loving. They are the “people person” and the “life of the party”. Sanguines work well with people but may not work so well on their own, but they really excell at doing things in public (eg. drama). Things to be mindful of when it comes to sanguines are they are impulsive and scatter brained. They do not like to say ‘no’ to people and therefore can sometimes take on more than they can handle – not finsihing what they started. That same desire to be “a people pleaser” also means that can sometimes avoid confrontations.
Rules are somthing that sanguines sometimes like to flaunt, and when it is time for them to account for it, they might try to charm their way out of it. It can be very hard stay mad at a sanguine. If you are a sanguine parent it might be hard for you to discipline your children because you want them to like you. If you have a sanguine child it will likely be important that you will want to keep them accountable and often remind them of their tasks and obligations. melancoly The melancholy type is the analytical, deep thinker. They tend to be well organized and serious, but have an appreciation for the arts and music. They have high standards, often to the point of idealistic. At the same time they can be sensitive to other people to the point of self-sacraficing. Melacholy children can be perfectionists and aim to get everything right. There attention to detail can be remarkable and literal. If you say something, the melacholy will keep you to the word. It is important to take care what you say to such a person because they have the habit of replaying situations and conversations over and over in their head, analyzing what was said, what should have been said, and what was meant by what was said. Be careful of speaking in absolutes to melancholies – use “always” and “never” with caution around them.
When a melancholy says they will do something you can almost bank on it. When they give praise or criticism it has real meaning because they are very often someone “of few words”. It is important on the other hand to praise them and give them lots of affirmation because they are easily isolated – that could well be their Love Language. If you are a melancholy parent, be careful that you do not withdraw yourself from your children, particualrly if the house isnn’t the way you want it or things are not going exactly according to your schedule. Be flexible and willing to change. Do not be offended or insecure if people question why you homeschool, otherwise all this will tend to leave you feeling somewhat depressed. One quick word about interating with other personalities. Melancholies tend to be well suited for sanguines or phlegmatic types, but cholerics, owing to their lack of sensitivity can be hard on the melacholy, so that can be something to look out for. choleric The choleric is the natural leader. They are assertive and strong-willed. As children they are independent and confident.
They are goal oriented and highly competitive. My youngest son, competes with our middle son alot, and when you combine his choleric nature with his Birth Order, you get a highly volatile mix If you can teach your choleric child right and wrong, and then steer them on the proper course for their life, just watch them go. They will be unstoppable. They will lead from the front, have no problem with other people disagreeing with them because “they’re all wrong anyway”. That is why it is critical, as a choleric child that strong moral foundation be laid early before rebellion takes root. That being said, cholerics often have a quick temper and can run roughshod over other people. Sensitivity is not their forte.
They often do not like to admit their wrong and can be inflexible. If you are a choleric parent, beware you do not shout at your children or speak harshly or rudely to them if they don’t do things the way you want them to. You should be especially in tuned with your child’s Love Language, and work hard at giving what they need. Be careful you do not force too much on your children, because you think it is good for them (I know there is a balaance here of course), asthe most gratifying learning is voluntary. Be quick to apologize and slow to anger. Think of your listeners’ feelings before you speak. phlegmatic The phlegmatic is the “easy going” low-key personality. They are often calm, cool and collected, quiet but can be witty (read dry sense of humour). They can be patient – not too concerned with the vagrancies of life, but possess an “iron will”. Watch out for passive aggression. Phlegmatic children are competent and steady, peaceful and agreeable. As such they can be good peacemakers.
However they can be unethusiastic and indecisive, wanting to avoid responsibility. Unfortunately they can also be selfish and sarcastic. They can be very pedestrian and non-interactive. As a parent you might want to keep a close eye on their working habits – ensuring they have a good work ethic and maintain a high standard of work – not just enough to get by. If you are a phlegamtic parent, be careful that you do not be too lax on discipline and forgoe this responsibility onto the other spouse. Although it is nice to be the “good time Charlie” parent it is important to be mindful on this element of your personality. Phelgamtic parents also don’t mind if they keep a disorganized home and maybe a little too easy going . Just like children, phlegamtic parents may resist change.
Private School vs Home School comparing advantages and disadvantages
Advantages / Disadvantages –
1 Free both parents up to work. Mind you you will probably need to do this because school fees can be very expensive, particularly at the eilte schools. However, cost associated with private schools does not seem to be a major reason why parents choose to homeschool. See the Top 7 Reasons for Home Schooling in the 3Alumni network Probably the biggest power of private schools is the networking. There is no doubt this is strong. In th UK, the top schools had affiliation with the colleges of Oxford and Cambridge, indeed spots were reserved for Etonians (alumni of Eton) for instance. The same was true with some US boarding academies and the Ivy League Universities. The same network can help secure jobs and high positions. For homeschoolers, this is not able to penetrated as it is for public school children. You’ll just have earn your success on the basis of merit, or do as many other home schoolers do, and start your own business.
In summary I am convinced that home schoolers have to potential to offer their children the best any private school has to offer and train them to be a leader in their given eendeavour and in the community in general. statistics section. advantage / disadvantage – 2 A Better education than a public school. Clearly private school students by and large do better than public school, but they still do not do as well as home schoolers. But they still rely heavily on texts and still are “preparatory” for university which means you learn how to write exams well. I remember writing lots of exams, but forget much of the material which I was tested on. Oddly enough, the material I remember best is the literature we read, and I can still remember poetry I enjoyed at school. There is a strong sense of expectation of success at private schools.
As John Taylor Gatto suggests they do a much better job than their public school counterparts in preparing their students for positions of power and thus they tend to end up there. I would argue home schoolers can take it a step further and actively build a personalized curriculum and environment for their children. As mentioned in the K-12 section , most public school students recieve 7 minutes a day of attention. It’s probably more at a private school but may never reach that of a home schooled student. But this sense of expectation often evolves into a twisted sense of entitlement. Students can come to expect they are “owed” the good things in life. They expect to lead those who do not go to private school. advantage / disadvantage – 3 Diverse and more positive social experiences Absolutely true.
One of the advantages of private schools over public schools is that they are able to expel students and eliminate negative influeneces more than public school. I find that private school students still get into alot of trouble with drugs and alcohol as do public school students, maybe they just do it with a little more sophistication. Wasn’t it a party of English boarding school students in Lord of the Flies ? Just like their public achool counterparts they are still dependent on peers. Private schools however are excellent at training their students in the art of politeness and social decorum – both of which you can teach your child at home. advantage / disadvantage – 4 Students are offered great Absolutley true. As a parent you would have to work hard to meet the same expectations. field trips and extracurricular
Absolutley true. As a parent you would have to work hard to meet the same expectations. advantage / disadvantage – 4 Alumni and History In my opinion the biggest advantage of attending an elite private school is that the child very often has the opportunity to meet and mingle with students of economic and social priviledge.
This affords them the chance to realize that such position is attainable – even if it is not what motivates them. Furthermore, the best schools have a culture or history of success with their students and alumni that implants a sense of expectation, even entitlement in their students. This is a powerful psychological tool to build esteem, the student belongs to an institution that promotes excellence. The network of contacts of “old boys” that a student develops can open doors of opportunity that those who are not familiar with the system can only begin to imagine. The phrase “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know” takes on enormous significance. In the UK, the top schools had affiliation with the colleges of Oxford and Cambridge, indeed spots were reserved for Etonians (alumni of Eton) for instance.
The same was true with some US boarding academies and the Ivy League Universities. . For homeschoolers, this is not able to penetrated as it is for public school children. You’ll just have earn your success on the basis of merit, or do as many other home schoolers do, and start your own business.
Although experts say that 30% of Americans will be involved in some type of alcohol-related car accident at some point in their lives, most people who have never been in such an accident can’t conceptualize what it would be like. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a drunk driving accident you are probably well aware of the amount of suffering that they can lead to. You may be wondering how to get the help that you need to move on with your life, or you might be worrying that your loved one will never have a “normal” life again.
Here are some tips that might help if you’re struggling with the aftermath of a drunk driving accident:
Know that you aren’t alone. People who have been through such an ordeal experience a surge of concern and help from friends, but after the initial influx of sympathy is gone ,the victims are still struggling. However, there are community organizations, drunk driving victims’ support groups, pastors, and counselors in your area who you can turn to if you need additional help.
Focus on getting the fullest recovery possible. There may be many things vying for your time and attention as you try to get back to your usual schedule. Don’t sacrifice your health during this important period of recovery.
Hire a trusted attorney. Working with a lawyer who has successfully handled other drunk driving lawsuits can allow you to get the resources you need to get better. You can let someone else – who has more experience – do the negotiating with insurance companies, doctors, and the person responsible for your injuries.
