Formation Counts

Posted on

For the past couple of years I have spent my time teaching languages in schools and universities. I will share with you some of my observations.

When it comes to sharing knowledge in a comprehensible manner, an activity, which is called teaching, a professor faces several challenges that have to be checked with important tools and alliances.

teaching

A classroom is a field devoted to knowledge where pupils attend lessons in order to further their education or simply to increase their knowledge.

Ahead of this task there is a professor or a teacher who ought to ensure the upbringing of the pupil’s knowledge so that they may, with the aid of wisdom, overcome and solve the inevitable problems that this thing called life has.

To do this, a professor has three vehicles:

Mind

A professor’s mind should be like an apple tree that never releases fruits that are not ready and always releases those, which are before it rots. This is to say that professors must only provide a peace of knowledge when entirely polished by his own reasoning thus making it sweet and digestible to his pupils.

Books

Good and able books should be used as the stonework of the knowledge, provided so that it can always be a reface point both for him and for the students. Pupils should always be encouraged to read in large quantities as to further their knowledge and frame their mind in a scholastic way.

Classroom

The classroom must be used towards the advantage of the pupils and nothing is more useful to achieve this task than the proper usage of school furniture.

If I want the students to turn their attention towards each other, such as it is in an activity of sharing research work or papers, I would put the desks in a square form. If I want the student’s attention to be focused on me, I would place them in horseshoe formation so that the end of the semicircle would be me.  And if I want to work in the rhetoric of students I would tell them to put their desks in the shape of a circle so that the person who is to speak is in the middle of it in order for him/her to master the pressure and win over the audience.

Looking back on these small tricks, you can make sure, dear reader, that if you are to take in the endeavor of teaching, you will perform smoothly.

Why so many Russian billionaires?

If you have been to Europe, especially to countries such as England and Spain, I’m sure that you realized the great quantity of Russians that abound.

The reason for that, dear reader, is because more than half of them are sons and daughters of billionaires, who are swallowing the industrial and property real estate of London and Barcelona, but how did this happen?

Russia is a country of extremes in every single sphere of life, the weather is boiling in the summer and freezing (with capital F) in winter; it is full of billionaires and poor people, their military is either destroyed or world threatening and their leaders are either with absolute power or brought down by disaster.

Russia has always been ruled by a strong father-like leader who decided, loved and hated for them.

For three centuries Russia was ruled by the Romanov dynasty, a race of controversial people lost somewhere between pious religion and beastly cruelty.

The Romanov’s ruled with an iron fist and prevented the Russian people from ever getting an education. The peasantry had virtually no rights and very little, if any, access to medicine.

The Romanov’s time came to an end in the year of 1917 when the Russian people under the wing of Vladimir Lenin, the man who would become the face of the Soviet Union.

During this time Russia, as well as all the other Soviet republics, were given free education, free medicine as well as housing and land to farm.

These services however came with a price from an iron fist government who forbade criticism and religion with death as well as lack of loyalty to the party and the communist ideal.

The party did not allow soviet citizens to travel anywhere outside the soviet socialist republics.

In the year of 1989, the U.S.S.R. fell along with the Berlin wall. As the months went by, all the soviet republics crumbled and the ex soviet was left without father government.

However, those who held high positions in the party took over all Russian industries and became billionaires.

Those billionaires, in time, began to take over the industrial real estate in London, Barcelona and Berlin.

This is how Russian billionaires came to be. Good or ill I cannot say. Its just mother Russia.

Leasing or Buying; which is the Best?

When it comes to make decisions regarding to Real Estate, we face a long and exhausting period of research, analysis and reflection.

We all may have in mind Paul Getty’s famous quote: “If it appreciates, buy it. If it depreciates, lease it”. Real Estate properties are among the goods that trend to increase their value with time. But is that fact a sufficient reason to buy and maybe invest the savings of a lifetime in a property?

Here are some well-known advantages of each trading figure:

Buying

  • You are investing in something that will become your property and later on it can be your source of capital for further acquisitions.
  • You can make the changes and adaptations you need, in order to satisfy your home or business requirements.
  • If after some years you want to move, change your business or buy more Real Estate, your current property can serve as a guarantee.

Leasing

  • Nowadays, leasing contracts give you plenty of choices to change or adapt the place, in order to fulfil your needs.
  • You have also the opportunity to buy, when the leasing term finishes.
  • If your life or business goals completely change, the property won’t become a burden.

As you can see, appreciation and depreciation are not determinant facts. The most important is to define what you want, what you need and how much flexibility you want to have.
