Brigidette C.
My love of teaching and tutoring began when I was a student at Rutgers University. My affinity for Math began long before that. While at Rutgers studying Biology with an emphasis in Math and Technology, I began teaching the SAT and SAT II for the Princeton Review in both a classroom and one-on-one setting...

Sage Advice  

 

counselor

 

"A university professor set an examination question in which he asked, 'What is the difference between ignorance and apathy?'

The professor had to give an A+ to a student who answered:
'I don't know and  

I don't care.' "   


- Richard Pratt,  

Pacific Computer Weekly, 20 July 1990

 

Sometimes the best solution is the simplest. Students should be aware that the ability to understand the complex is not necessarily a sign of learning; rather, the ability to understand the complex and explain it as though it were simple, or to reduce a principle to elegant simplicity, is often the sign of real understanding.

Start the 28th Amendment

Haven't read this? The following text is from a massive email campaign a couple of weeks ago. We would love to hear from you about this topic.

 

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took
only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified!  Why?  Simple!  The people demanded it.  That was in 1971...before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.

Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.

Here is one idea that really should be passed around.

 

Congressional Reform Act of 2011

 

1. Term Limits. 12 years only, one of the possible options below..

 

A. Two Six-year Senate terms

B. Six Two-year House terms

C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms

 

2.  No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

 

3.  Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately.  All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.

 

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

 

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.  Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

 

6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

 

7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

 

8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 10-1-11.  

 

The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen.

Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.

 

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.  The Founding Fathers

envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work..

 

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive the message.

Maybe it is time.

 

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!! If you agree with the above, copy and email or forward this to 20 people.
