Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 165

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pa attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

Another surprise is that when it comes to purchasing course materials and answering old questions in assignments, many succeed in locating previous students who took the course. They never attempted to get an idea of the course before registering.

I have tried many teaching styles, revised several times the contents and arrangements of the course chapters, and experimented with various methods to encourage the students into reading the course materials on their own volition. Nothing worked. A few diligent students were my teaching rewards.

I varied the number of quizzes, exams, assignments and lab projects, tried to encourage my university students to read research articles, investigated new presentation techniques, gave them hints on how best to read and assimilate the materials, emphasized on thinking like engineers and not memorize information, and I even assigned students to read to class:  I received basically the same observations, no matter how I change the course. A few diligent students (2 to be precise) were my teaching rewards.

Many university students don’t bring any paper or pen to take notes, many refuse to redo their assignments for a couple extra points or for closure sake, and most of the redone works (even after correcting them in class) show no improvement.

One of my constraints for homework: the end product has to be hand written, including tables, charts and figures.  I can manage to read physicians’ prescriptions better than their handwriting assignment.

Zionist Ashkenazi Jews (including Neocons) who obey only the Talmud (and never the Torah), have formed a world power banking, extortion cult of war and death that has little or nothing to do with being devout adherents of Judaism. These are the folks who think nothing of breaking the law, lying (Kol Nidre), stealing, graft, corruption, assassination, blackmail, extortion or destroying tens of millions of people to get their way.

There is this couple of students who demonstrate this want to learn: it is always refreshing to feel that a few students are serious about the money invested by their parents for them to learn at universities.

Slavery is rampant in most countries, especially in West Africa (Mauritania, Ivory Coast, Gambia…), Yemen, Sudan and the Far East. Slavery is even practiced on its own citizens. Other countries abuse the “imported” work force to subjugate them into a state of slavery. (East European highway truck drivers consider themselves slaves to western Europeans capitalists)

Slaves were first “imported” from Madagascar, Sudan, East Africa and the current States bordering the Sahara Desert to Sultans in Morocco and the Ottoman Empire. Saudi Arabia is highest in that practice and the UN is declining to broach this indignity.

In the 18th century, the European colonial powers and the USA shipped slaves from West Africa for several centuries.
