Education system should suit different types of learners

Education system should suit different types of learners | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it

For some, the education system in the United States is less than ideal. One contributing factor is budget cuts targeted toward education. These policies are well-intended, but a country’s future is largely determined by its education and the professionals it is able to produce.
I believe that Western countries, because of labor and minimum wage laws, are losing the battle to keep companies within their borders, because other countries are successful at attracting labor-oriented companies because of their loose labor laws. These laws are often attractive to Western companies trying to maximize their profits, but this comes at the cost of worker exploitation and lower standards of living in those countries.
However, in the service sector, I believe countries like the United States are very successful because the work force is well-equipped for knowledgeable service sector jobs.
And this is the reason why my family came to the United States. The higher education system provides for better opportunities, but standardized testing and inadequate consideration for different types of learning come at a larger cost than we expected.

Internacional.- No es fácil sufrir dos tragedias aéreas tan impactantes sin efectos graves para una aerolínea. Es por ello que después de que uno de los Boeing 777 de Malaysia Airlines fuese derribado por un misil en Ucraina, y la literal desaparición de otro de sus aviones mientras cubría la ruta Kuala Lumpur – Beijing hace escasos cuatro meses, ha llevado a la empresa a considerar un cambio de nombre como parte de la estrategia para reparar el daño a su reputación.

Middle-aged drinking affects cognition as you age

Middle-aged drinking affects cognition as you age | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it
by Belfast Telegram: Drinking too much in middle age can lead to memory loss in later life, a study has found. Scientists questioned 6,542 American middle-adults about their past alcohol consumption and assessed their mental abilities over a period of eight years. They found that a history of problem drinking - described as alcohol use disorders (AUDs) - more than doubled the risk of developing severe memory impairment. Lead researcher Dr Iain Lang, from the University of Exeter Medical School, said: "We already know there is an association between dementia risk and levels of current alcohol consumption - that understanding is based on asking older people how much they drink and then observing whether they develop problems. "But this is only one part of the puzzle and we know little about the consequences of alcohol consumption earlier in life. What we did here is investigate the relatively unknown association between having a drinking problem at any point in [...]
