U.S. Leads the World in Most Expensive Tuition

The U.S. Education system is far from perfect, ranking somewhere around 17th out of the top countries in the world. It does not come as a surprise however that as far as the amount of spending to attend school for students, the tuition costs, the U.S. ranks at the top of the list with an average of $8,200 per year for an undergraduate degree program at a public school(private schools are several thousands of dollars higher) according to a report by the OCED released in 2017. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development is an intergovernmental economic organisation founded in 1961. The main goal of the group is to help grow the world economy. Thirty-five countries currently participate OECD membership.

Chile came in second-highest on the OCED produced list at $7,654 a year in tuition. Japan ranked third with an average of cost of $5,229. Canada was 4th, $4,939. Australia was 5th, $4,763. South Korea was 6th, $4,295. New Zealand, Israel, and the Netherlands were also high on the list, with tuition of over $2,000, while Spain, Italy, and Portugal also made the list with tuition of under $2,000 but well above $1,000.

One saving grace that many students in the U.S. may benefit from compared to students of other nations is that they are elidgable for many forms of financial aid not available other places, nearly $6,000 a year in federal pell grants, to scholarships, to several thousands of dollars a year in multiple forms of student loans.

The Abandonment of the American Public School System

The American public school system, while funded like no other nation in the world, is in an extremely poor state of being. With the Republican appointed new U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy Devos cutting funding to the failing system and redirecting focus specifically to the private sector there may be little hope for any real repair in the near future. Since taking office in 2017 the Trump administration has proposed over $9 billion in cuts to the education system in general and while it effects on everyone it impacts the poor of the nation more than anything.

DeVos has criticized the public school system, calling it a dead end, and seems to have little, to no plans at all, to even attempt to fix the issues causing it to be so lacking. She has attack the system and teachers of the public school system, claiming they care more about a system than the actual students they are teaching – which is quite the opposite of what actually is. Public school teachers have proven time and time again that they put priority on individual students than anything.

Despite the negative outlook on the system by the average American, test scores from public schools are higher than they have ever been. Statistics from the past 40+ years prove that student abilities, like reading and writing for example, have risen by almost 5% despite the fact that in the same amount of time the public school system has taken on more challenged students who previously would have been denied access to public schooling due to their physical or mental disabilities.

Teacher Arrested After Inquiring About Superintendent’s Pay Raise

A teacher has been arrested after questioning the pay raise of her school district’s superintendent.

The woman, identified as Deyshia Hargrave, is an English instructor at Rene Rost Middle School in Kaplan, La. The incident occurred at the Vermillion Parish, La. school board meeting Monday night.

In a video posted on YouTube, Hargrave is seen questioning superintendent Jerome Puyau’s pay increase during the meeting.

“A superintendent or any person in a position of leadership getting any type of raise, I feel like it’s a slap in the face to all the teachers, cafeteria workers and any other support staff we have,” Hargrave told the board in the video.

School board president Anthony Fontana silenced Hargrave, saying her concerns weren’t relative to the board’s agenda for that night. Hargrave was then approached by an officer, who asked her to leave. The YouTube video shows Hargrave obeying the male officer, but once off camera, she can be heard screaming.

In video obtained by Shreveport, La. station KTBS taken the night of the incident, Hargrave is seen outside the board meeting being placed in handcuffs on the hallway ground. As she is escorted, still cuffed, out the door, she can be heard asking the officer, “Why are you pulling me?”

The disturbing video of Hargrave’s arrest attracted the attention of national media, and reaction to it was swift. One teacher who retired last spring from the same school district where the incident occurred told the Huffington Post that the arrest was “absolutely ridiculous.”

The school district said it was not pressing charges against Hargrave, though she was booked into the local city jail.

On Tuesday, Vermillion Parish board president Fontana told local television station KATC he thinks the incident with Hargrave was a “set up.”

Can Neurocore Cure Mental Health Disorders?

Living with ADHD, depression, or any other kind of mental health disorder inevitably impacts your life. Whether taking lengthy courses like DBT or CBT, taking prescription medication, regularly receiving counseling, or other common methods it usually takes a lot of time and money. A not so new way of treating these conditions is called Neurocore Therapy. Although this method may sound like the latest breakthrough in mental health, it’s been used for many years. Visit indeed.com to know more about Neurocore.

Neurocore is basically retraining your brain to respond the way it should normally. For instance someone with ADHD gets distracted easily and tends to be very hyper-active. The method they use is to hook you up to a machine that monitors your brains activity while you sit through a movie. They show you a specific way to breathe, and the machine picks up any changes in your brain. They are able to see where patients loses focus and this changes the function of the movie. It will either pause or diminish the patients ability to watch it. This is training the brain to visually see when it’s state changes. It shows that these changes negatively affect reality by the movie being interupted. This in turn (after so many sessions) allows the brain to detect the negative changes, and correct them on it’s own.

There has been no adverse effects of this therapy documented, the only complaints were minor about privacy while getting the therapy and the paste used for the machine.

For those sufferring this can be a chance to overcome their condition instead of just treating the symptoms. Read more at dialdish.com about Neurocore.

How Church has Changed Throughout the Century And How Mighty Fortress Church Helps Bring Back the Original Purpose of Church

When people read the bible, they will notice a huge difference in church as presented in the bible and church as it is seen in today’s society. While people think about these churches as these large stadiums with a charismatic preacher, church was a lot different when it was started. For one thing, church was a lot smaller when people started meeting. Also, the teachings that are held at current prominent churches are a lot different in many cases to what is put in the bible. While it is not necessary to go back to the tiny sized churches, the teachings of the Bible are very important. Watch this video on Youtube.

One church that is doing everything it can to maintain and promote the teachings of Christ as found in the Bible is Mighty Fortress Church. The Mighty Fortress church is highly dedicated to the truth as presented in scripture.

Company Raises the Stakes Against Illegal Prison Contraband

Securus Technologies, a Texas-based supplier of penitentiary monitoring products and other services, has developed and is deploying a key technology that makes us safer from potential threats directed from within prisons. Called the Wireless Containment Solution, or WCS, it aims to make illegal cell phone contraband useless within prisons.

 

When deployed, WCS monitors prisons for cell phone use. When a call from an unauthorized number is made, WCS blocks the signal before it reaches the network’s cell phone tower. Between July 2016 and July 2017, WCS prevented over 1.7 million calls from illegal phones from just eight prisons. That’s a lot of potential crime “orders” from being stopped. Gangs are notorious for running business from within prisons, and they are slowly losing their influence on the outside world due to this new technology. We can be thankful that our communities are a bit safer as a result.

 

However, it wasn’t until recently that WCS had the legal bearing to even be a possibility. The Federal Communications Commission, or FCC, had many regulations in place to prohibit the public use of phone jamming technologies. Due to amazing testimony by prison contraband experts such as Robert Johnson, the FCC relaxed regulations and allowed prisons to use technology that more selectively blocks calls from illegal cell phones.

 

Robert Johnson, now a consultant to Securus, spent 15 years as a corrections officer and witnessed first-hand the types of crimes that can be committed when illegal cell phone contraband is successfully used. After he intercepted $50,000 worth of contraband from a prison gang, they vowed revenge and used a cell phone to arrange retribution. Johnson survived the attempt on his life. Since then he has tirelessly worked on the national level to help legalize and promote this technology, preventing crimes and saving many lives in the process.

 

David Giertz Provides Insight For Retirees On Social Security

Most retirees will be dependant on social security as a main source of income. However, many financial advisors fail to help their clients realize the challenges that will come with living on a fixed income. Finacial advisor David Giertz, President of Nationwide Financial’s sales and distribution organization, recently spoke to the Wall Street Journal regarding how retirees can prepare for life on Social Security.

In the video interview, Mr. Giertz said that most financial advisors avoid talking to their clients about social security because of the sheer complexity of the social security rules. Mr. Giertz mentioned that there over 2,700 rules in the social security handbook alone. And he warned that 4 out of 5 clients said that they would switch advisors if the advisor did not thoroughly understand the rules surrounding social security.

Mr. Giertz mentioned that social security could equal 40% of a retiree’s income. And that retirees could lose up to $300,000 of their benefits if they turn on their social security benefits too early. With that in mind, Mr. Gietz suggested that financial advisors educate themselves on the social security system.

David Giertz is one of the premier financial advisors in the United States. As the President of Nationwide Financial’s sales and distribution organization, Mr. Giertz has seen the company grow from $11 billion to $17 billion in profitable revenue.

Mr. Giertz began his financial career at Citigroup where he started as a Financial Services Advisor. He was later promoted to Area Director and eventually rose to the title of Executive Vice President of Sales. As more and more people head towards retirement, David Giertz and Nationwide Financial will rise to the challenge and help their clients gain the income they need to enjoy their retirement.
