• Why do conservatives want to fill schools with armed guards or teachers with weapons?

    That is exactly what they do at the state penitentiary, and it hasn't stopped violence there. If we keep treating kids like they are in prison, is it any wonder why they act like criminals?

    I poured myself into it, we had to pick one of about 6 different topics, that were: a painting, just a painting which i found weird because well, a painting speaks for itself you dont talk about it haha, the artist, now that i could talk about for days, another one was a piece of music, again same thing and i forget the rest, but i chose the role of education in society; something i feel strongly about. I started off by mentioning the great writers and poets of Ireland and the universities they attended, i then went on to talk about how daft it is that in most schools and colleges were told to memorize something and then spill it out onto the page, which isnt learning. I then went on to speak about how i think criminals and people in prison should be thought practical things like woodwork and other things which is already the case in some places to be fair, but i said i think they should be taught about things like: Philosophy, Psychology, Spirituality and Wellbeing, helping them to cultivate compassion and realize the consequences of their actions and how to meditate and just how to do the right thing instead of hanging around with low lifes and getting off the hampsers wheel so to speak. If you ask me the reason they rejected my application is because i pointed out their old fashioned method of education and in Ireland as with many countries, we have a problem with stupidity, it is everywhere. We knock down old buildings, ancient forests, pollute rivers, and so on....

  • Why NRA or Government cant open special schools for Gun owners kids?

    Best answer: Yes, I think that the children of gun owners should have a "special school" with many more safety protections. However, I would rather see a law passed by Congress that provides very stiff penalties and jail time for parents who do not keep their guns under lock and key at home.

    Best answer: Yes, I think that the children of gun owners should have a "special school" with many more safety protections.

    However, I would rather see a law passed by Congress that provides very stiff penalties and jail time for parents who do not keep their guns under lock and key at home. This is just common sense, safety and good parenting.

    And this solution would appease the gun nuts and the people outraged by school shootings.
    No one can explain to me how anyone can get a trigger lock off a gun without the key.....and so these devices are fail proof.

    Best answer: Someone mentioned apprenticeships, which may be a viable option to learn a skilled trade (e.g., plumbing, electrician, or carpentry). It does help to already know someone in "the Union," and there may be a mandatory aptitude entrance exam. Having participated in community service (volunteering with a non-profit (charity) organization *may* help the applicant hoping to get approved for an apprenticeship, such as with Habitat for Humanity. (The other respondent is correct in that an apprentice may need to attend *some* college classes.)

    There may be a local "county" public vo-tech school for job-readiness skills and/or to learn a skilled trade. The local community college may also offer "non-credit" or "continuing education" classes (in addition to their classes for course credit).

  • Have you ever hugged your bus driver?

    I have this past semester. I wanted to thank her, and I said something. I think I also said I’d miss her. Then I hugged her the last minute and never rode that bus again.

    I have this past semester. I wanted to thank her, and I said something. I think I also said I’d miss her. Then I hugged her the last minute and never rode that bus again. Then in the mornings, I wave to her and she waves back when she passes by my bus stop. Should I hug these other bus drivers? I know I didn’t hug my first bus driver when I first rode the bus and it was 6th grade. I wasn’t that happy with him, and I think he hates kids or doesn’t bother. This bus driver I have now is alright, just runs over curbs. But I think he kinda deserves one? He got cookies once because a student gave him some around Christmas. Idk, just don’t want to be a bother to them. It’s a normal thing . A hug and that’s all also thanking them and saying goodbye.

    Best answer: Take any biology and health courses offered at your school. Do well in them. If your school has a chapter of the Junior Red Cross (a group that helps sponsor blood drives), join them. If you are a member of the Scouts,earn the merit badge that relates to emergency medicine. See if your local emergency squad (often part of the fire department) uses any volunteer help. Even if it's only things like helping out in fundraising, it will get you talking to EMTs. Also look into paramedics, usually considered to be a step up from EMTs in terms of training.
