Concept of Entanglement - a simple visualization for everybody... (0513-11) Even theoretical physics is simple if the teacher knows the topic.

For solving complex issues the children need more playing time... Oiginal Susan Ochshorn in Huffinton Post Fishing Naked in Finland: What've PISA Scores Got to Do With It?

Finland is the mecca of education reformers across the globe. Just before we all gorged on our turkeys and stuffing, Michael Mulgrew, head of the United Federation of Teachers, turned down an invitation for a free, but politically imprudent, pilgrimage from Manhattan Media CEO and mayoral hopeful Tom Allon. Diane Ravitch, of course, had already been there and done that, waxing poetic on the virtues of Finnish education, earlier this fall, in her Education Week blog, "Bridging Differences," with Deborah Meier. Since 2001, when the PISA (Program for International Student Assessments) results went public, this Nordic nation's 15-year-olds have ranked at or near the top of all industrialized nations in reading, science, and mathematics. And we haven't yet stopped talking about it.

Why Finland? Everyone's been in the business of deconstruction, including the Finns, who originally expressed some puzzlement about the ingredients of their success, and then in the spirit of 21st century innovation, launched a web site to meet the world's demand for answers. Here are a few to chew on. First, teachers are highly qualified. Second, they have tremendous autonomy. Third, the teaching profession commands respect, with only one in ten aspiring educators snagging a coveted spot in what are generally regarded as rigorous teacher preparation programs. Next, when teachers do meet their students, in formal school, they're older than most of their primary peers in industrialized countries, and little emphasis on grades is the norm in the early years of schooling. Finally, standardized tests don't make an appearance until very late in the game...

Is this one of the better Primary Schools Systems? The 15 year old Finns were again on the top among their peers in 57 countries.  What is their secret, and has it had any impact of the progress of the country?  The American students got the C grade among all the students - this is not so glorious as one would expect for a leading country in the world

The Israelis are admired for their technology and innovative nature - why one academic in every four heads for America? This is a good question and the facts are on the ground appear support this. This special inventiveness supports also Judaism and has made many converted to believing that the Jews / Zionists are a special breed sanctioned by the God. However, when this righteous God is the same God as the Christians and Muslims believe, why would this be the case? All Jewish Torahs jubilantly support this as a "fact", but so do the other religious writings support the equal "facts" for their followers

Water is everywhere but do we really understand it? The water is essential for all life forms as far as we know. It is a simple molecule consisting of one Oxygen and two Hydrogen atoms. We all know what it is but we seldom how symmetrical it all can be. Here we have a drop of water under vibration at 100 cycles per second (100 Hz)


The real Smokers - the Deep Sea Vents (NOOA) The water is essential for all life forms as far as we know, be it a mile or two under the ocean surface next to the sea vents where the continuous opening and closing of tectonic plates allows the red hot lava to freely touch the ocean water. This is a deadly environment for every lifer form on the surface of the planet.

US Economy - The Numbers The economic status of the USA is best defined by numbers by four variables: M1, M2, M3 and the Monetary Base. Anything else is expression of opinions and changes in percentages that can be anything depending on the point of time to which the new numbers are compared. It is like telling the the US stock markets have risen an unbelievable 50% within the past two years and we must be due to a major correction, why?

Train Your Brain to Focus Next time you are sitting in a meeting, take a look around. The odds are high that you will see your colleagues checking screens, texting, and emailing while someone is talking or making a presentation. Many of us are proud of our prowess in multitasking, and wear it like a badge of honor. Multitasking may help us check off more things on our to-do lists. But it also makes us more prone to making mistakes, more likely to miss important information and cues, and less likely to retain information in working memory, which impairs problem solving and creativity.
