Do Natural Abilities Determine Your Success at Learning?

Gloucestercitynews.net (Nov. 14, 2019)--It seems that everybody knows the saying that states: “A sound mind in a sound body”. As a matter of fact, it is rightly so. People who opt for a healthy lifestyle can be automatically called wise. Nonetheless, there is also that cohort of people whom somebody might eventually consider to be “not wise” or even “dumb” just because they were born this way. This statement could have not stood farther from the truth as every single individual is wise, intelligent, and creative. The problem is that all the people are judged within the system of unified standards. As Albert Einstein used to say: “Judging a fish by its ability to climb trees is stupid”. Therefore, do not believe when somebody says... Read more →

Today, NJ Advance Media published columnist Steve Politi’s provocative story about an unknown New Jersey lawsuit that nearly changed amateur sports forever. John Suk was coaching a junior varsity baseball game for Bound Brook High School when he told a player to slide into third base. What happened next – a sickening “POP!” and a serious ankle fracture – set off a seven-year legal battle that culminated this spring with a surreal trial in Somerset County.

Congressman Norcross on College Affordability Act

As the only New Jersey member on the Education and Labor Committee, I am dedicated to fighting for teachers and students, and this bill just does that. Researchers have estimated that for every dollar that states spend on higher education, states receive up to $4.50 back, so why wouldn't we want to continue to invest in higher education? What does the College Affordability Act do? Lowers the Cost of College Makes college affordable for more students by increasing the value of Pell Grants. Eases the burden... Read more →
