The other handicap: brightness. (1/13)

Because of changing attitudes to the measurement of mental abilities, only the slow child is assessed and receives special educational help. By contrast, the bright child may remain undetected because unassessed. For these children there are few special provisions, and they may present as behaviourally disturbed or educationally retarded. We describe four such children, and we feel that more facilities should be devoted to helping bright children, both at home and in school.  (+info)

Unexpected development of artistic talents. (2/13)

The development of exceptional and unexpected artistic skills at any age must be a matter of curiosity. This can occur among young children with severe learning difficulties, especially if they are autistic. Some examples of these so called idiot-savants are given, and the way in which their brains may function. It is also true that elderly people who suffer from frontotemporal dementia can find that they are able to express themselves in remarkable art forms. This can occur in other types of dementia, but then more often it is the changes that result in the paintings of established artists, for example in the paintings of de Kooning. Possible links between these two phenomenon are discussed, and it is suggested that in both instances it may be that if the brain is relieved of a number of functions it can concentrate on the remaining ones. Ways in which this may operate in both groups are reviewed.  (+info)

Generally, gifted individuals learn more quickly, deeply, and broadly than their peers. Gifted children may learn to read early and operate at the same level as normal children who are significantly older. The gifted tend to demonstrate high reasoning ability, creativity, curiosity, a large vocabulary, and an excellent memory. They often can master concepts with few repetitions. They may also be physically and emotionally sensitive, perfectionistic, and may frequently question authority. Typically the rebellion, whether active or passive, reflects underlying feelings of alienation. Some have trouble relating to or communicating with their peers because of disparities in vocabulary size (especially in the early years), personality, and interests. As children, they are out of step with their peers and their social concept improves when placed with children of similar ability.[5]. Gifted children often develop asynchronously-their minds are often ahead of their physical growth, and specific ...
Video preview: Obviously, children who are gifted are going to surprise you early in their development by such characteristics as talking early with a vocabulary well beyond their age-peers, learning to read before kindergarten, understanding addition and subtraction by early in kindergarten, intense curiosity, reduced need for sleep and increased energy level. Not all gifted children develop the same or show all of these characteristics. See for a more comprehensive list of early signs of giftedness.. My focus today is on ways giftedness can create problems and conflicts; being gifted can also mean difficulty socializing with age peers, thinking styles that dont always mesh well with the demands from the environment, even children who see themselves as little adults, challenging teachers and parents.. I remember being in the second grade with Mrs. Hefty. At the time I was very interested in learning about all of the ...

This article by Julia Osborn looks at who the gifted are, what the unique needs of these children are including appropriate education, satisfying friendships, and supportive parenting, and what parents and professionals can do to provide for those needs. The author encourages parents taking a major role in ensuring their childrens needs are being met until there is a consensus about what the most productive environment for gifted children is.
Experienced educators in this field may find some interesting articles here, but much of the content is aimed at those who are new to the world of gifted children.

Parents of gifted children are always looking for information about gifted children. These books can help you understand your gifted child. They describe gifted children and some of the problems they have.
The word is gifted - a six-letter word that makes some gifted children cringe. Why? First, it is definitely a learned attitude, most often from adults. Parents who hesitate to admit in public that their child is gifted are sending a message to their child that giftedness may be something of which to be ashamed. School administrators do the same thing when they attach vague, cute titles to gifted programs. (Call the program anything, but just dont use the word gifted!) Instead of pride and confidence in establishing a program that meets the needs of certain students who happen to be gifted, there is fear and resentment - fear that such a program will stir up community resentment toward gifted students because they dont deserve a special program. Some classroom teachers reinforce the gifted is a bad word philosophy when they constantly remind gifted children of their weaknesses. They condition gifted children into being average or into thinking they are average. Parents and educators have a ...
IT PLEASES me that the Government has at last deemed it politically correct to recognise the existence of gifted children by setting up an advisory group on early identification and support (Friday, September 25). But the image conveyed on the cover only seeks to reinforce the notion that gifted children are odd. The tragedy is that the initiative has come too late for those in the education system now, many of whom have suffered terrible psychological problems. My son is one of these casualties. Our solution has been the discovery of Cademuir school in Dumfriesshire, for gifted children who can no longer cope with mainstream schooling. Here they are able to heal and rediscover their self-esteem and love of learning which have been hammered out of them by conventional teaching methods. Perhaps the Government should look to this school and its staff for the way forward. Jacqueline Lee, Duncreggan, Moniaive, Dumfriesshire. ...
Giftedness is a set of personality traits that enable an individual to accomplish above average results which represent an important creative contribution to the field they appear in. If giftedness is not recognized and developed at the right moment, a potentially gifted child will never accomplish its full potential. For a childs giftedness to be developed completely, the environment, which encourages him and provides challenging tasks, is of the utmost importance. A potentially gifted child should be noticed as early as the preschool age, and this is why the way a child is approached in this early, sensitive age, is important. This is the basis of NTC schooling system which tries to point out the importance of the power of childhood for the further childrens development and progress. This research pays special attention to the way of implementation of the basic segments of NTC schooling system in practice, that is, in day-care center Kocka Kockica in Zadar, and to the experiences and level ...
Giftedness is an educational designation that refers to a child who demonstrates highly developed cognitive and academic abilities. Children who are recognized as gifted are often highly curious, demonstrate a large and mature vocabulary, are creative and imaginative, and have interest in sophisticated topics.. Assessment for giftedness typically entails the completion of measures of cognitive ability and academic achievement, although some educational programs only require the completion of a cognitive assessment measure (e.g., WISC-V, WPPSI-IV, WAIS-IV) for school applications. Assessment plans will be determined based on the needs of the family prior to beginning any formal testing.. Families frequently seek a giftedness assessment for their child when looking to register in either the Calgary Board of Educations Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program or in Westmount Charter Academy. Our assessment will serve both of these purposes.. For more information about assessment for giftedness ...
The combination of a gifted child in a school setting can pose a variety of challenges that can lead the child to exhibit inappropriate behaviors that can be misinterpreted. Gender, age, and personality all may play roles in the expression of these behaviors as well as in how these behaviors are interpreted by others. The most commonly seen types of misdiagnosis in gifted students include the over-diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder, Bipolar disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). Missed diagnosis (under-diagnosis) in gifted children may occur for these same conditions when giftedness over-compensates for the weakness ...
Keywords :. What we expect as an opportunity or a gift is not experienced like this by the person concerned : the gifted understands everything very quickly and is bored in class. He is disappointed by the school that does not meet its expectations, and risk of dropping out at any time. He perceives very quickly the difference with the others, a difference difficult to live with because it is out of step with his peers : he does not have the same centers of interest and therefore, it is difficult to make friends and then lives in its own bubble away ; it is hypersensitive and suffers from this difference.. Gifted, early, in advance, with a high potential, the qualifiers for these children are many, and in France we are talking about children intellectually precocious. But precocity is to say that these children are just ahead and so that one day they might be overtaken by the other. This is not the case.. Children increasingly many These children would be more numerous, perhaps because they are ...
The first word is usually taken as a major event in the family. The proud parents of early talkers and the worried parents of late talkers seem to share a common belief that early language development means superior intelligence. Whether or not this belief is true is uncertain. In his study of gifted children, Terman (1925) found that the average age for the first word was eleven months; however, some gifted children in the group did not speak at all until the second or third year. The eleven-month average was based on parents memories rather than on data from direct observation, and thus should probably be considered too low. Termans study would indicate that there is little reason to believe that early language development, in itself, means anything significant about the childs potential. A child who speaks early is almost surely bright; but one who does not is not necessarily dull, since other factors may delay the onset of speech. The development of language proceeds very rapidly after ...

CONSIDER THE SITUATION AND SETTING It is important to examine the situations in which a childs behaviors are problematic. Gifted children typically do not exhibit problems in all situations. For example, they may be seen as ADHD-like by one classroom teacher, but not by another; or they may be seen as ADHD at school, but not by the scout leader or music teacher. Close examination of the troublesome situation generally reveals other factors which are prompting the problem behaviors.. By contrast, children with ADHD typically exhibit the problem behaviors in virtually all settings including at home and at school though the extent of their problem behaviors may fluctuate significantly from setting to setting , depending largely on the structure of that situation. That is, the behaviors exist in all settings, but are more of a problem in some settings than in others.. In the classroom, a gifted childs perceived inability to stay on task is likely to be related to boredom, curriculum, mismatched ...
And then, I caught myself saying those words to him.. Born me, he replied matter-of-factly.. He was challenging my statement in a way I hadnt expected. So I elaborated. I began nervously listing those things that I loved about him as a way to make up for being unoriginal. I told him he was different and intense. I told him that I heard his words and agreed. I told him he was my baby. He smiled and slept through the night for the first time ever. He was 14 months old.. So, I was now given permission to sleep, but I had forgotten how. I would lie in bed during those dark times in the throes of what now. Good mother remained fixated on hearing him breathe. Bad mother remained fixated on how she would be moving her sad body before the dawn chorus, before she felt ready. A whole days journey. Weeks. Years. Sometimes different but mostly the same, that journey. I never came to it ready.. 4am. Breakfast. Coffee. 5am. Coffee. Reading aloud. 6am. Reading aloud.Coffee. 7am. Reading aloud. Yawning. ...
It seems fairly clear that EoE is caused by food and environmental triggers although they still arent certain how much each plays a role for each person. It seems that environment does play a role as people seem to experience worse EoE symptoms in the spring and fall when outdoor allergens are at their worst. All of the EoE people I interact with in online forums have said that this year has been brutal for them which coincides with one of the worst allergen seasons in quite some time the US. Stress makes EoE much worse. And inadequate sleep.. The Silent Reflux diagnosis last year changed my life considerably. I had to give up many foods (regular coffee, pop, onions, tomato-based products, peppermint, many berries, juice, lemon, mustard, pineapple, etc.). The EoE on top of the Silent Reflux coupled with my Oral Allergy Syndrome has completely disrupted our lives. It has been hard on all of us over the spring and summer. Ive been working my way toward a major elimination diet, but cant come up ...

Angela Farmer: Appreciate Individual Needs to Maximize Learning Outcomes (Daily Journal, 1-22-21) Why are NYC Parents So Upset at the Idea of Scrapping Gifted and Talented Programs?
It has been claimed that social behaviour changes after lesions of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC). However, lesions in humans are rarely restricted to a well defined cortical area. Although vmPFC lesions usually include medial orbitofrontal cortex (mOFC), they typically also affect subgenual and/or perigenual anterior cingulate cortex. The purpose of the current study is to investigate the role of mOFC in social valuation and decision-making. We tested four macaque monkeys prior to and after focal lesions of mOFC. Comparison of the animals pre- and postoperative performance revealed that, unlike lesions of anterior cingulate gyrus (ACCg), lesions of mOFC did not induce alterations in social valuation. MOFC lesions did, however, induce mild impairments in a probabilistic two-choice decision task, which were not seen after ACCg lesions. In summary, the double dissociation between the patterns of impairment suggest that vmPFC involvement in both decision-making and social valuation may be

The current guidelines within which Gifted education programs operate was established with reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in 1988 and passage of the Jacob Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act.. At the federal level, the program supports evidence-based research, demonstration projects, innovative strategies, and similar activities designed to build and enhance the ability of elementary schools and secondary schools nationwide to identify gifted and talented students and meet their special educational needs.. Within Illinois, school districts define both the criteria for giftedness and the assessments used to measure it, and self-report data on their programs of gifted education. ...
So, by your personal experience, which has no grounding in gifted education, the children who know theyre smart (who are significantly more likely to be gifted) have less work ethic, or less ability to deal with failure? Did you ever stop and think that perhaps that to these kids, they dont even try because theyre terrified theyll fail? Gifted children are prone to perfectionism. Theres a reason it took me ages to decide to really sit and write a blog. I didnt want to fail at it. I have a hard time knitting gifts. Im great at it... but what if this is the time I ruin it? I dont want to fail, so I find myself up all hours in the week ahead of Christmas trying frantically to knit ALL THE THINGS so I can give the gifts Id planned. And when youre intense... even the littlest things can hurt. I see every single error in everything I do. If I miss a stitch, twist it, or bugger up one single stitch in a sweater, I will see that stitch every single time the sweater is out. It took ages to be ...

Like adults, children can experience anxiety disorders; between 10 and 20 percent of all children will develop a full-fledged anxiety disorder prior to the age of 18,[118] making anxiety the most common mental health issue in young people. Anxiety disorders in children are often more challenging to identify than their adult counterparts owing to the difficulty many parents face in discerning them from normal childhood fears. Likewise, anxiety in children is sometimes misdiagnosed as an attention deficit disorder or, due to the tendency of children to interpret their emotions physically (as stomach aches, head aches, etc.), anxiety disorders may initially be confused with physical ailments.[119]. Anxiety in children has a variety of causes; sometimes anxiety is rooted in biology, and may be a product of another existing condition, such as autism or Aspergers disorder.[120] Gifted children are also often more prone to excessive anxiety than non-gifted children.[121] Other cases of anxiety arise ...
The 35 years followup of the Terman investigation on the gifted child is presented. In order to describe the gifted group of mid-life, a general information blank was mailed in 1950 (1,437 subjects) and in 1955 (1,424 subjects). The field study, completed in 1952, included personal interviews, the Concept Mastery Test, supplementary questionnaires of subject and spouse, and testing of offspring. Results for 97.5% of the subjects include the following: intelligence increased significantly from 1939 to 1952 (p .001); 85% of the group went to college and nearly 70% graduated; two-thirds of the men and three-fifths of the women did graduate work; on the Minnesota Occupational Scale, all subjects were in the first five of the seven groups and 86% were in the first two (professional and executive); and one-half of the women were housewives but many contributed to community and civic activities. The marriage rate and personal adjustment were average for the population. Other results are

Note: In the first case, parents are convinced of the unnecessary acquisition of secondary education and teach the child what he wants to learn himself. Many other sensible countries, anonymous is officially banned, because its consequences have a very negative impact on the future of the child, in particular - the inability to enter higher education. Externate is chosen mainly by parents of gifted children who are able to master the school curriculum in a short period of time, and family and distance education are confident in their abilities and opposing the school of mom and dad. At home, the same education is agreed not so much at will, as from despair, which is most often associated with the state of the childs health. Every sensible pedagogue, based on his own experience and guided by modern methods, tries to organize the lesson in such a way that it turns out to be bright and memorable, and the studied material was subsequently brought to the consciousness of all the students without ...
One might think that being cheerful, worrying less and taking things easy would be the passports to a long and healthy life but new research from the University of California, Riverside suggests that this could be wrong. The researchers used information first gathered by the Stanford University Psychologist Louis Terman on more than 1,500 gifted children who were around 10 when they were first studied in 1921 and who were tracked throughout their lives. The study found that the children who were the most cheerful and who had the best sense of humour as children lived shorter lives on average while those people who were most prudent and persistent throughout their lives lived longest. The cheerful, happy-go-lucky children tended to take more risks with their health over the years. People who were more committed to, and involved in, their work also lived longer while starting formal schooling early was a risk factor for early mortality. People who felt loved and cared for felt a greater sense of ...
My journey back into the arms of Christ is centered around this scripture in Jeremiah. Jeremiah 29:11-14. For I know well the plans I have in mind for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare, not for woe! Plans to give you a future full of hope. When you call me, when you go to pray to me, I will listen to you. When you look for me, you will find me. Yes, when you seek me with all your heart, you will find me with you, says the Lord, and I will change your lot.. My story begins in college, during my junior year. When I was 19, I became unexpectedly pregnant by my high school sweetheart. Being the gifted child of my family and the first woman on both sides of my family to ever graduate from college, in my mind, I had no choice, but to continue the path I was on to my so-called success. I couldnt face the alternative.. I told no one, except the father, his sister and my OB. Full of fear, I went to see my OB to confirm my pregnancy. He asked me what I wanted to do. I cried and explained ...
The Mozart family grand tour was a journey through western Europe, undertaken by Leopold Mozart, his wife Anna Maria, and their musically gifted children Maria Anna (Nannerl) and Wolfgang Amadeus from 1763 to 1766. At the start of the tour the children were aged eleven and seven respectively. Their extraordinary skills had been demonstrated during a visit to Vienna in 1762, when they had played before the Empress Maria Theresa at the Imperial Court. Sensing the social and pecuniary opportunities that might accrue from a prolonged trip embracing the capitals and main cultural centres of Europe, Leopold obtained an extended leave of absence from his post as deputy Kapellmeister to the Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg. Throughout the subsequent tour, the childrens Wunderkind status was confirmed as their precocious performances consistently amazed and gratified their audiences. The first stage of the tours itinerary took the family, via Munich and Frankfurt, to Brussels and then on to Paris where ...

There is no such thing as a typical or standard gifted student. Like all children, gifted kids are unique individuals with different strengths and needs. However, it does seem that gifted children often have common characteristics, one of which is intensity. Basically, intensity means they are more - more emotional, more active, more over-reactive, more dramatic. Their highs are higher and their lows are lower. ...

Dr. David Purvis has written a series of seven Teaching Manuals for topical science studies on The Digestive System, Electricity, Our Solar System, The Oceans, Phases of Matter, The Cell, and Chemistry. Dr. Purvis wrote the books to help teachers learn how to teach more creatively using hands-on demonstrations and experiments. While other books offer science experiments, these are structured so that sequential lessons build upon one another to teach well beyond a superficial level. Books were written for classroom use, but many lessons might be even easier to teach in a home setting than in a classroom.. The series was written with gifted children in mind, so the publisher says that most of the books might be used with children as young as eight years old up through age 13. The Cell and Chemistry shift a year later, both targeting ages nine through 14. For average students, I would suggest at least fifth or sixth grade level. Even though these werent written for high school level, they might be ...

The 2016 Summer Super Stars Camp STEAM campers were very busy with several community leadership projects this year. The pre-K & Kindergarten Early Childhood (EC) campers sold snacks via their EC store and collected nearly $300. After researching many options, our youngest campers chose to donate their collection to Angelinas Army, in honor of a local NJ girl who has developed stage 4 neuroblastoma, which means that her cancer is in multiple areas and has metastasized to her bones. Only 500 children a year are diagnosed with this type of cancer. TGCS donation will help Angelinas family with the high costs of treatments for Angelina.. The Community Leadership Afternoon Academy campers chose two initiatives to support this summer: camp-wide collection and donation of canned goods to the Social Service Association of Ridgewood and monetary collections for donation of live trees to the Northern Highlands Regional High School administration, to replace dead trees that campers found on the grounds ...
Mentalize redirects here. For the second solo album of Brazilian vocalist/pianist Andre Matos, see Mentalize (album). In psychology, mentalization is the ability to understand the mental state, of oneself or others, that underlies overt behaviour. Mentalization can be seen as a form of imaginative mental activity that lets us perceive and interpret human behaviour in terms of intentional mental states (e.g., needs, desires, feelings, beliefs, goals, purposes, and reasons). It is sometimes described as understanding misunderstanding. Another term that David Wallin has used for mentalization is Thinking about thinking. Mentalization can occur either automatically or consciously. Mentalization ability, or mentalizing, is weakened by intense emotion. While the Theory of Mind has been discussed in philosophy at least since Descartes, the concept of mentalization emerged in psychoanalytic literature in the late 1960s, and became empirically tested in 1983 when Heinz Wimmer and Josef Perner ran the ...

Divergent Thinking. Another element of J. P. Guilfords research model for the structure of intelligence. Your gifted child is doing divergent thinking when he/she comes up with new and unique ideas about things. The ideas may not always be practical. In many ways, divergent thinking is the opposite of convergent thinking.. Due Process. Procedure used if parents disagree with any findings, recommendations regarding identification, evaluation or educational placement for your child, or if the special services are inadequate.. Due Process Hearing (DPH). If agreement has not been reached at the PHC, a due process hearing should be requested. The purpose of a hearing is usually to determine whether the program or placement proposed by the district is or is not appropriate for the child. Hearings can also be held on whether it is necessary to evaluate a child or whether the child has been properly classified. Although the due process hearing is more formal than a pre-hearing conference, it is not a ...

I dont hate this room, Kate says, Im still jealous of it. They fight. Hes tired, thats all, its no big deal. Paul confesses that he went back to see Gina. I thought she despised that woman...after all that stuff she wrote about you. Its amazing how many different things they can fight about within a matter of moments. Theyve moved on to the misery of their youngest friendless gifted child, Max. Every kid hates school. Paul, it appears is a stranger in his own familys life. Nothing is as important as what happens in this room. She cries. Is that it? Paul asks. Oy, these people are miserable to even watch on the screen. I want a smaller screen.

Most mathematical cognition research has focused on understanding normal adult function and child development as well as mildly and moderately impaired mathematical skill often labeled developmental dyscalculia and/or mathematical learning disability. In contrast, much less research is available on cognitive and neural correlates of gifted/excellent mathematical knowledge in adults and children. In order to facilitate further inquiry into this area, here we review 38 available studies, which examine the cognitive and neural basis of gifted mathematics. Studies associated a large number of cognitive factors with gifted mathematics, with spatial processing and working memory being the most frequently identified contributors. However, the current literature suffers from low statistical power, which most probably contributes to variability across findings. Other major shortcomings include failing to establish domain and stimulus specificity of findings, suggesting causation without sufficient evidence and

TY - JOUR. T1 - Beyond diagnosis: Mentalization and mental health from a transdiagnostic point of view in adolescents from non-clinical population. AU - Ballespí, Sergi. AU - Vives, Jaume. AU - Debbané, Martin. AU - Sharp, Carla. AU - Barrantes-Vidal, Neus. PY - 2018/12/1. Y1 - 2018/12/1. N2 - © 2018 An increasing volume of evidence suggests that mentalization (MZ) can be an important factor in the transition from mental health to mental illness and vice versa. However, most studies are focused on the role of MZ in specific disorders. This study aims to evaluate the relationship between MZ and mental health as a trans-diagnostic process. A sample of 172 adolescents aged 12 to 18 years old (M = 14.6, SD = 1.7; 56.4% of girls) was assessed on measures of MZ, psychopathology and psychological functioning from a multimethod and multi-informant perspective. Contrary to predictions, MZ was not associated with general psychopathology and comorbidity, even when explored from a broad, trans-diagnostic ...

For those of you who have sufficiently re-acquired a reading posture after having fallen in the aisles after being overcome by laughter, let me rewind the page a bit: Though there are other word labels which could be used to describe differing perceptions of what is meant by above average ability, I am using three that might also be used to describe a generalized level system. The word Talent is placed first in the series, the word Giftedness is used second, and the word Genius is used third. Each of these can thus, on a very basic level, be attributed to the series-of-three events found in the three little pigs fairy-tale. While the three pigs are themselves not indicated as having any differences to distinguish them from another, the type of housing each lives, does. While the story ends with the wolf being unable to huff and puff his way into a brick or stone house of the third pig, I embellished the story for the purpose at hand. If you disagree that someone with Talent is in anyway ...
What are gifts and talents? Theoretical definitions of giftedness ascribe it to individuals who possess two attributes: a particular kind of ability and a high level of that ability. Until the 1960s, giftedness was generally taken to mean intellectual giftedness. Later research began to distinguish between divergent, highly creative thinking, and convergent thinking,…
In Oswego CUSD308, we are committed to the development of the whole child and believe that gifted students who come from all socioeconomic, cultural, ethnic backgrounds as well as amongst special education students and English language learners must be engaged in challenges and opportunities both within the classroom and outside the traditional setting that cultivate growth in their area(s) of identified giftedness, whether in the intellectual and/or artistic areas. Our district offers a range of services to help meet the needs of gifted students, but we also recognize that some students may have academic needs that extend beyond what can be provided through gifted education services. In these cases, acceleration can be considered. Please review the Gifted Education Services K-5 Acceleration Process to evaluate whether you feel a referral is warranted. If, after reviewing the process, you feel an acceleration referral is warranted please complete the K-5 Acceleration Referral.. Note: Paperwork ...

As I attend your congregations to be with the folks in the CEM and engage you in the class and sermon I feel blessed to hear your testimonies, of your personal and collective involvement in the lives of others. It is wonderful to observe and receive ministry from those who when I last saw them 15 years ago were not yet ordained or sharing in public ministry. I see the joyful almost boisterous singing of some and the quieter thoughtful posture of others. I appreciate the giftedness of those who have planned the worship, evidenced by meaningful readings, relevant scriptures, complimentary hymns, all presided over by a discerning and shepherding presider. Your prayers lift me up and challenge me. How I value the discussions with our folks during the potluck lunches.

Paul, urges us to offer our bodies, our very selves as a living sacrifice to God (Rom. 12:1). This offering cannot be made in some abstract way with pious words or religious acts. No, it must be rooted in the acceptance of the concrete details of who we are and the way we live. We must come to accept and even honor our creatureliness. The offering of ourselves can only be the offering of our lived experience, because this alone is who we are. And who we are not who we want to be is the only offering we have to give. We give God therefore not just our strengths but also our weaknesses, not just our giftedness but also our brokenness. Our duplicity, our lust, our narcissism, our sloth all are laid on the altar of sacrifice ...
Failure to identify those students that only faintly demonstrate characteristics of giftedness can lead to continual classroom disruptions and the loss of potential for the student. I could not agree more strongly with the author. Having taught several vocational science classes in local high schools, I have met many students that are indeed gifted but are nonconforming holding little regard for those that do not seek to understand them on a personal level. There are many strong young minds lost every year because teachers and other professionals are not adequately trained or equipped to identify and differentiate curriculum for these underground students. According to the author characteristics of the intrinsically motivated student include: students that accept challenges willingly, those that show persistence in difficult tasks, those who exhibit curiosity, remain task-committed, and reflect satisfaction in their own efforts despite the opinion of others. The author sees this motivation as ...
Thus, they may well find themselves in one school that teaches only evolution and the next year in one that includes creationism in its science courses, in one school that requires high reading skills and then one that does not, in one that emphasizes excellent civics courses and then one that has none.. With such disparity within our American education systems, we can well put our students at a decided disadvantage, challenging them in one school and boring them in the next, or vice versa.. From what I can tell, there seems to be little consideration in the media regarding this situation. As a result, our children are likely to be short-changed in their education because our politicians are more focused on their fiefdoms than on quality education for all American students, and supported in this limited vision by commentators like George Will..

for the week of 9/17/98. Once the first week or so of the Break-In Cycle is over, any ammonia readings higher than zero are cause for concern. Since even trace amounts of this toxic waste product can cause both short and long term damage to fish, some hobbyists routinely test for its presence. Unfortunately, in a couple of common instances, ammonia test kits can give false high readings, causing the hobbyist unnecessary worry, and sometimes resulting in action (such as massive water changes) that cause undue stress on the fish.. One common cause of false ammonia readings is the test kit itself. All kits are not created equal in the first place, and some appear to have much longer shelf lives than others. In our experience, ammonia test kits with sealed packets of pre-measured powder reagents generally are quite accurate and have a long shelf life. Liquid reagents follow, then bulk powder, and finally tablets. A few kits have expiration dates on their reagents, but most do not. If you have reason ...

This Guest Post is courtesy of The Law Office of Cristine Beckwith in Tacoma, WA.. If you are suffering from Gastroesophogal Reflux Disease (GERD), acid reflux or heartburn, the condition may cause a false high reading in breath analysis for blood alcohol content (the BAC test). While a blood test directly measures blood alcohol concentration, the BAC measures the amount of alcohol in the subjects breath. This is generally done using infrared technology. A lamp within the BAC machine emits light to the sample (breath) and the reflected light is measured. The light loses some energy in the sample of breath, and this energy that is not absorbed is treated as a fingerprint of the sample. This fingerprint is analyzed by comparing it to known samples. Upon completion of the test, the machine will generate a print out determining the level of alcohol in the subjects breath.. The amount of alcohol in the deep lung air is thought to correlate to the amount of alcohol in the bloodstream. The Blood ...

We kept our measurement gear on, but we had to turn off the audio bleeps on the Geiger counter, its constant sound was driving us nuts. The alarms of the devices cant be turned off, and in particularly high radiation areas theyd all go off. There was one place we hit such a high reading that we didnt even stop there. It was windy and dry, and the dust and snow can carry radioactive particles. So if you step out of the car and get dust ...
Problem: I changed the pool water and the sand in the filter at the beginning of the swim season last year 2008. I changed them both out because our pool was starting to turn green on a regular basis even though the chemicals were balanced. I briefly used a pool service last summer (2008) that used chlorine gas and the pool almost immediately turned green and stayed that way until I took over when they had the chlorine level so high it didnt come within swim range for about a month yet the acid level was extremely low. This year the pool again turns green even though the chlorine level has remained quite high and the acid is where it should be. I have had my numbers verified by more than one professional pool store. We found that our phosphates were high and we treated this as well but they remain high (although I cant be sure because the chlorine level is also high thereby potentially giving a false high reading). We dont have a lot of foliage or debris around the pool and, in fact, we ...

Alpha Fetoprotein. all hormones produced by the baby and/or the placenta and released into the bloodstream of the mother. The triple screen test excludes the Inhibin A test. The levels of the AFP protein compared with the levels of the other hormones can help determine the birth defect that is most likely, if the test results are abnormal.. Both high and low results can be a sign of a serious birth defect. A very low AFP level result can signify that your baby will be born with Down Syndrome or Edwards Syndrome, while an abnormally high AFP level can uncover a neural tube defect like Spina Bifida. The AFP test acts as an initial screening for potential problems and helps doctors decide if additional tests are required and what types of health issues they are testing for. We recommend asking your physician for specifics on what they consider to be a normal range, as this can vary from doctor to doctor.. It is important to note that high readings on an AFP test can also be caused if you ...
Alcoholic drinks feature a significant final result on elevated blood pressure; therefore, it is important people pay out a lot more attention in the relation of alcoholic beverages and blood pressure level and its outcome on the overall health.. People who consume huge amounts of alcohol often display indications of getting higher blood pressure levels than people who drink much less. This becomes crucial, especially in situations where folks are regular drinkers. If the alcohol consumption is maintained fairly minimal, which is, occasional consuming then the blood pressure degree is not so incline to slim towards dangerously high readings.. As an example, a person might have an alcoholic drink, including 12 oz of beer or 5 ounces of red wine, every are viewed just one consume daily. Some males might take 1 or 2 beverages and become within safe amounts. Now a woman may take only 1 beverage in contrast as ladies do not have exactly the same degree of threshold towards alcoholic drinks as men. ...

The glycan part of cellular glycoconjugates affords a versatile means to build biochemical signals. These oligosaccharides have an exceptional talent in this respect. They surpass any other class of biomolecule in coding capacity within an oligomer (code word). Four structural factors account for this property: the potential for variability of linkage points, anomeric position and ring size as well as the aptitude for branching (first and second dimensions of the sugar code). Specific intermolecular recognition is favoured by abundant potential for hydrogen/co-ordination bonds and for C-H/π-interactions. Fittingly, an array of protein folds has developed in evolution with the ability to select certain glycans from the natural diversity. The thermodynamics of this reaction profits from the occurrence of these ligands in only a few energetically favoured conformers, comparing favourably with highly flexible peptides (third dimension of the sugar code). Sequence, shape and local aspects of glycan ...
The barriers to people from lower income and other underrepresented backgrounds getting to work in the media and publishing industries have been increasing since the mid 1980s*.. Of course, these are very competitive fields of work that require exceptional talent to succeed: but talent alone wont grant you access, especially if you lack confidence, role models, useful networks, a financial cushion, the right education and encouragement or the ability to persevere through knock backs and rejections.. For many new writers, progress does not correspond to their talent and is defined more by a structural lack of opportunities.. Media and publishing jobs and opportunities are predominantly London-centric, and access is often supported by unpaid and low-paid internships. Traditional routes into the industry through local journalism have been decimated since the mid-1990s by cuts to local papers. If you come from a lower income background or have caring responsibilities or health limitations, these ...
