Muriel Fox

Muriel Fox | Reading and Writing | Scoop.it
In this MAKERS interview, Muriel Fox talks about breaking into the male-dominated public relations world of the 1940s, meeting Betty Friedan in 1963, and becoming a co-founder of the "NAACP" for women, NOW, and making history. 
Yvette Perales's insight:

Ladies1? have you ever felt uncomfortable in a class room full of males. That you think "i don't think I'm up for this all these guys know what they are doing'".. Not many woman are in the military field, computer science field, engineering field, etc. Whatever field you think men are more involved in than woman. Well have you ever wondered who broke the gender gap? In this video you get to meet one of the women who made history towards passing the Women's right's law. A great model towards all woman if you feel you cant' do something because you feel intimidated by men. This women here was in the age where maybe all the men who knew about her intimidated her the word was on her shoulders perhaps But at in century women can do what they want career wise Muriel Fox and her organization NACCP made it possible for women. Some women can relate to this because not many feel capable of doing what they want to do but they really can1. This is a great motivating interview everybody and anyone can make history and be part of it all we have to do is take a step and speak out for everyone. We may still be in the gender gap but not as much as women were back then.

Forget Pre-K. American High Schools Are a Disaster. | Reading and Writing | Scoop.it

This article explains how nothing has changed in America. High schoolers are still scoring low grades in math and science. Students find there classes more boring then when they are out of there state. They believe ids that do better is those who attend school everyday. Also explain how fitting in in a group or in class helps a student in feeling comfortable. it also helps them participate in class when they do feel comfortable but if they do not they will not participate. The article points out the longtitude study of this case which is 40 years.and nothing has changed. As people a question we should ask what else can we do to help students feel motivated? what isn't motivating them? This maybe should be a different study then studying the same case over 40 years.

Every once in a while, education policy squeezes its way onto President Obama’s public agenda, as it did in during last month’s State of the Union address. Lately, two issues have grabbed his (and just about everyone else’s) attention: early-childhood education and access to college. But while these scholastic bookends...

Woman saying she was attacked in bar won't stop wearing Google Glass

Woman saying she was attacked in bar won't stop wearing Google Glass | Reading and Writing | Scoop.it
SAN FRANCISCO -- The woman attacked in a San Francisco bar for wearing Google Glass said she won’t be intimidated into taking off the Internet-connected glasses.
Yvette Perales's insight:

Have any of you guys heard of the new high tech glasses. Well these glasses are named Google glass. These allow people to read text messages, use it for navigation, check the weather, taking pictures, and recording,. You can say this is also another smart phone but not quiet there yet. It's battery drains within less then five hours,surfing the web is limiting. Besides the quick review many people who have heard of it dislike the google glass. Some people mostly dislike that a person is able to record and take pictures of people they do not know. Many are worried they will be recorded  with out the person having any permission. A woman reported she was verbally, and physically  attacked at a bar. A women was worried she'd be recorded without consent and started a big commotion that rattled up most of the people in the bar. How would people feel if google glass started to lower down prices and everyone started to buy them. Would our society agree or disagree?. I believe there would be many  pros and cons that google glass has invented. Some cons is you can record a violent act and find justice for someone a con is being recorded someone a person does not know it. This can actually evolve the vines that are featured on facebook and go world wide. And what video vines are videos that can be either funny, racial, stereotype, violent, and even intimate or what others might say (porno graphic). So Can this possibly lead up problems for google glass?.

Surviving Anxiety

Surviving Anxiety | Reading and Writing | Scoop.it
I've tried therapy, drugs, and booze. Here’s how I came to terms with the nation's most common mental illness. (RT @matthiasrascher: Surviving Anxiety.

Via Dave Hall
Yvette Perales's insight:

Reading this article by a man who has a disorder of anxiety is very intresting. After reading the whole article everything caught my attention but what mostly caught my eye was his wife asking him a question.  She said i hate your anxiety because it bothers you But what if there are things that I love about you that are connected to your anxiety?  “What if,” she asked, getting to the heart of the matter, “you’re cured of your anxiety and you become a total jerk?”. What would a person like him be if his anxiety did go away. This man described his whole phobies and anxietys in depth. Afraid of vomiting on planes, going onto planes, chlostrophobic, and so much more. He describes how all of disorders connect to one another. His family history as well and as he decriibes his parents had some disorders. They were over protective of him because they're anxiouty would kick in. I remember in one of my psychology classes my professor mentioned "what if the only reason we are afraid of hights or spiders because our parents as kids would always scream or over react and pulls us towards them and say be careful!". I feel this could some what relate to what I learned in my psychology class.
