Value-Based Education

first_img“Education is the most powerful weapon through which you can change the world.”Today, every parent wants to give their children the best education, which is not just confined to the books but also goes way beyond that. The parents look at the holistic development of their children as that is essential in this global scenario. That is why parents focus on value-based education, along with academics.“Education without values is like a flower without fragrance.”Education is a lifelong process of development of one’s personality, which starts from school. It is the school that builds the base for everything. That is why school plays a significant role in providing value-based education.Value-based education aims at training the student to face the outer world with the right attitude and values. It is a process of the overall personality development of a student.The rise in crimes, violence, and other destructive activities in society can describe the poor inculcation of values. Nowadays, most crimes are committed by juveniles, the future generation. Other than that, mostly all of them are educated, but they lacked value education. Had they been thoroughly taught the values of human character, it is possible they would have never committed any of those crimes. Education policymakers need to lay more stress on education with much emphasis on imparting human values. This will have better results than just knowledge.The need of the hour is to impart value-based education. Once values become everyone’s priority in life, all the negative aspects of life will automatically wipe out. Value education is a must in today’s generation to make the world a better place to live in.last_img read more

He was a semi-retired healthcare professional, businessman, and financially and professionally successful. Ron was a take-charge person who exuded an air of confidence. He was adventuresome and welcomed challenges. He was a pilot and competitive sportsman. In appearance and personality, he reminded me of Sean Connery, the original “James Bond – Agent 007”. Ron was the stereotypical “man’s man”.As Ron’s condition worsened so did his impatient and critical attitude, especially towards his wife, Jackie. Ron was hospitalized for pain management and one day I discovered Jackie standing in the hallway outside Ron’s room crying, “According to him I can’t do anything right. He’s down right mean to me. He’s never treated me like this before. I know he’s dying but I don’t want to remember him like this.” I obtained Jackie’s permission to confront Ron. I was never so ambivalently direct with a patient before. After all, didn’t he have a right to be frustrated and angry? After all, the poor guy was dying of cancer.I was anxious as I entered Ron’s hospital room. I assured myself I was doing the right thing. I walked up to the side of Ron’s hospital bed and Ron greeted me. Then I took a deep breath and proceeded, “Ron, I’m going to say something to you and I don’t expect an answer or response. As a matter of fact when I’m done I’m just simply going to turn around and walk away.” I continued, “Ron I’ve noticed you are a person who likes a challenge. Well, I’m going to present to you what might be the ultimate challenge. Jackie told me you’ve been criticizing everything she’s done for you, that she can’t do anything right. She doesn’t want to remember your last days together this way. I understand you are really suffering right now, but I’m challenging you to rise above your own feelings and be the husband she still needs for you to be.” Ron listened without saying a word, and then I turned around and walked out of the room. I left the challenge with Ron to contemplate and I had no idea how he would respond.The next day I returned to find Jackie sitting at Ron’s bedside holding his hand. Smiling, she looked up and said, “Thank you. It’s so much better!” Then Ron looked me in the eye, winked, nodded his head and gave me a big “thumbs up”. He didn’t say a word, he didn’t have to. It was apparent he had accepted the challenge. He had determined to become the husband and man that Jackie needed him to be. Now that’s a “man’s man”!Empathy increases understanding and provides direction, but sympathy demoralizes. I’m reminded of a quote by Max Lucado, “God loves you just the way you are, but he refuses to leave you that way. He wants you to be just like Jesus.” I know based upon firsthand experience. God has called me out more than a time or two; especially when I try to make excuses for unholy behavior. You see, God is able and willing to forgive sins honestly confessed but He doesn’t forgive excuses.“Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” (Proverbs 27:5-6)Loren Hardin is a social worker with SOMC-Hospice and can be reached at (740) 357-6091 or at [email protected] You can order Loren’s book, “Straight Paths: Insights for living from those who have finished the course”, at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.last_img read more

Horse Sport Enews Ballard accumulated the highest number of points among her fellow female riders in Thursday’s $35,000 Adequan® WEF Challenge Premiere Round and the $75,000 Bainbridge Companies Grand Prix held on Sunday, January 10. She claimed victory on Thursday riding Walter White, a 10-year-old Belgian Sport Horse gelding (Baloubet du Rouet x Bon Ami) owned by Ilan Ferder, before securing the Leading Lady Rider title with a second-place finish in Sunday’s Grand Prix aboard Kamilla D, a 10-year-old Luxembourg mare (Kashmir von Schuttershof x Canturo) that she owns in partnership with Ferder.“It’s an honor to win Martha’s Leading Lady Rider Award, especially because Martha is a family friend,” said Ballard, 40, who operates Looking Back Stable with her parents, David and Sandi Ballard. “I think it’s so nice that she offers this award in the sport; it’s certainly an honor. Even if I didn’t win the Grand Prix I still won something! It gives me something to talk about.”In recognition of winning the Leading Lady Rider Award, Ballard was presented with a bottle of champagne, a bouquet of flowers, and a gift certificate for a shopping spree at Hunt, Ltd. by Martha W. Jolicoeur and her husband, Dr. Stephen Norton.“This is her first big grand prix and my third horse show on her,” said Ballard of Kamilla D. “She certainly rises to the occasion. She made the first round so easy for me and then in the jump-off, when you’re following McLain Ward in the order, you have to try. She’s green at going fast and one down kept me in second so there’s nothing more I could have asked of her this week.“I’ve never had a week like this before,” said Ballard of her success during the opening week of competition at WEF. “You never forget weeks like this, and you know you’re not going to have them every time, so you can’t take them for granted. You have to take it jump-by-jump and class-by-class.”A sponsor and dedicated supporter of horse sport at WEF for many years, 2021 marks Jolicoeur’s 11th season presenting the Leading Lady Rider Award. A former competitor herself, Jolicoeur enjoyed a successful international show jumping career before becoming Florida’s number one Douglas Elliman real estate broker.“This award is a testament to consistent top performances, and it was always the title that I would set my sights on winning when I was competing,” said Jolicoeur, who began presenting the award in 2010 as a way of recognizing female accomplishments in an Olympic sport where men and women compete as equals. “Wellington is the winter equestrian capital of the world and attracts some of the best riders in horse sport. To be a part of that is an honor for me, and to experience how horses have brought us all together and made a place like Wellington possible is really special.”Throughout WEF, the Martha Jolicoeur Leading Lady Rider Award, given in memory of fellow realtor and horseman Dale Lawler, is presented weekly to the high-score female rider based on performances in the weekly WEF Challenge Cup Series and grand prix events. During the final week of WEF, the Martha Jolicoeur Overall Leading Lady Rider Award will be presented to the female rider who accumulates the most points throughout the season.

Alleged hatchet murderer arrested after day on the run: Police

first_imgMNPDNashville/Twitter(NASHEVILLE) — The man police say murdered his ex-boss with a hatchet at a gym in Tennessee has been arrested after over 24 hours on the run, according to Nashville police.Domenic Micheli, 36, who was an employee at The Balance Training gym, walked into the facility on Monday morning and stabbed his former supervisor with a hatchet, Metro Nashville Police Department said.Micheli was on the run since the attack, but Metro Nashville police announced he was arrested at about 10 p.m. by Kentucky State Police.The arrest took place on Interstate 65 near Bowling Green, Kentucky, about an hour and a half north of where the attack took place Monday.“Thanks to Kentucky State Police Sergeant Tucker Carmichael & Troopers Courtney Milam & Bartley Weaver for their work in arresting Micheli on the interstate tonight,” the Nashville police said in a subsequent tweet.Micheli was arrested less than two months ago when he tried to gain access to the White House grounds.According to the United States Secret Service, Micheli was arrested on the evening of April 27 for Unlawful Entry and Failure to Obey when he tried to breach a vehicle checkpoint.Micheli allegedly ignored officers’ commands and was brought into custody. It’s unclear how the case was adjudicated. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Derek Chauvin murder trial spotlights America’s social ills: Advocates

first_imgCourt TV via ABC News(MINNEAPOLIS) — At the start of the Derek Chauvin murder trial for the killing of George Floyd, defense attorney Eric Nelson asked jurors to exercise their common sense and apply sound judgment based solely on the evidence presented, stressing, “there is no political or social cause in this courtroom.”But advocates say that the social ills that disproportionately impact minority communities are on display in a case where a white officer knelt on the neck of a Black man for more than 9 minutes, despite his cries and even after he had no pulse. And they say that, as in other trials that involve Black men, the victim himself is facing more scrutiny than the suspect.The Rev. Fredrick Douglas Haynes III, the pastor of the Friendship-West Baptist Church in Dallas, told ABC News that while the courtroom may not be the appropriate venue for social activism, America’s most entrenched and vexing social ills are an integral part of the case.Haynes said that in his weekly sermons to the 12,000 members of his congregation and an estimated 25,000 logging into his online broadcasts, he has for years touched on a plethora of issues plaguing the nation that have surfaced once again in the high-profile case: the opioid crisis, the deadly COVID pandemic, record unemployment, health problems that have disproportionately affected Black and minority communities, police brutality, police reform and the underlying scourge of racism.“It’s not just Derek Chauvin on trial, America is on trial. Our systems are on trial,” Haynes told ABC News.David Weinstein, a former federal and state prosecutor in Florida, said he can understand why people feel the way they do, given the frequency of which Black people are killed in encounters with police. But, he added, “that’s not exactly the way the criminal justice system and our court system is set up to work.”“It’s Derek Chauvin who’s on trial and our system is a system that works if you let jurors hear and see the evidence and they make up their minds, and then we accept the verdict,” Weinstein told ABC News. “Then we know our system works.”Pandemic and painDuring the prosecution’s case, Floyd’s girlfriend, Courtney Ross, told the jury of Floyd’s battle with COVID just weeks before his death. The pandemic also left the security guard and millions of Americans unemployed. Ross said they both struggled with opioid addiction, calling it “a classic story.”“We both suffered from chronic pain,” she said. “Mine was in my neck, and his was in his back. We both had prescriptions. But after prescriptions were filled, we got addicted and tried really hard to break that addiction.”Medical experts called by both the prosecution and defense have dissected Floyd’s health problems, specifically hypertension and undiagnosed coronary disease, ailments that disproportionately affect Black and other minority communities. In February, the U.S. Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health reported that in 2018 African Americans were 30% more likely than whites to die from heart disease, and 40% more likely to have high blood pressure.Haynes said the prosecution has highlighted Floyd’s challenges in an attempt to humanize him and explain the low levels of fentanyl and methamphetamine found in his system during an autopsy were not enough to kill him. But the defense has used those same social ills to argue the drugs and his diseased heart were key contributing factors to his death on May 25, 2020 — more so than the knee Chauvin was seen in numerous videos applying to the back of the man’s neck.During the trial, which heads into closing arguments on Monday, the prosecution has argued Chauvin was the primary cause of Floyd’s death. Dr. Andrew Baker, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner who conducted the autopsy on Floyd and ruled his death a homicide, testified that drugs and heart disease were contributing factors to Floyd’s demise, but that it was the police restraint that “tipped him over the edge.”“I pastor a church community where I’ve seen how COVID has economically wreaked havoc on so many and has resulted in persons who have sought means of coping,” Haynes said. “We often criminalize Black people when they seek to have coping mechanisms that are often addictive. And so it’s not really surprising.”He said the medical conditions Floyd suffered are planted in what he called “medical apartheid,” meaning a lack of access to good health care. “Those comorbidities are rooted in a system that has failed us,” Haynes said.And while the social ill of racism has not been emphasized, or widely mentioned, during the trial, Haynes said it doesn’t have to be.“It’s so blatant because, No. 1, the fact that Derek Chauvin did not see the humanity of George Floyd. There was no response to his cries,” Haynes said. “Racism is a contradiction of humanity. And racism is not just, ‘I don’t like you because of your skin color.’ Racism, systemic racism, is when I believe I can do certain things to you because of your skin color and get away with it.”“So, then the racism is all through it, even trying to put George Floyd on trial and whatever weaknesses George Floyd may have had,” he added. “George Floyd is the victim here. Derek Chauvin is not the victim. Again, that’s how racism operates.”Chauvin has pleaded not guilty to charges of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter. His defense has been he was acting in accordance with standard police training when he and two other officers placed a handcuffed Floyd in a prone position with his face smashed into the pavementWhile Haynes and other social-justice advocates insist racism played a role in Chauvin’s alleged indifference to Floyd’s repeated cries of “I can’t breathe,” Weinstein said prosecutors presented no evidence to support it.“Certainly without him (Chauvin) testifying, we’re not going to know what his thought process was,” Weinstein said.Police brutality ‘still with us’But Rev. William Barber, co-chairman of The Poor People’s Campaign, a national anti-poverty coalition, said systematic racism has clearly been the elephant in the courtroom.“The first social ill is the culture of policing, where a white officer, and it wouldn’t matter if it was a Black officer, but a white officer feels OK to keep his knee on the neck of a man screaming, begging for his life and he can’t breathe. Not only while he’s hollering, but after they could no longer feel a pulse,” Barber told ABC News.Barber noted that during the 1963 March on Washington, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of police brutality. “It’s still with us,” he said. “So, we’ve got the biggest social ill in policing — the violence against minority people, Black men and women and Latinos and others, with seeming impunity.”Barber said the inequality in the justice system has also reared its head in the Chauvin trial. While the jury has heard of Floyd’s life in detail, Barber said they’ve learned little about Chauvin’s background.Jurors have been told Chauvin was a police officer for 19 years, his last day on the job was the day after Floyd died, and that he was trained and retrained on the policies and practices of the Minneapolis Police Department, including first aid and CPR, which prosecutors say he failed to use even after being told Floyd no longer had a pulse.The defense showed the jury this week video of a May 6, 2019 arrest of Floyd, and heard testimony alleging he was under the influence of drugs during the police encounter. However, the panel heard nothing about the multiple complaints filed against Chauvin. His personnel file was heavily redacted and only one incident, a traffic stop in which he pulled a woman out of her car for going 10 mph over the speed limit, resulted in a reprimand.“But what we know most about him is that on that day he put his full-body weight on a man’s neck and basically lynched him in public,” Barber said. “And that says a lot about him, even though we might not know other personal things. What is in your mindset when you do that? There was no threat, Mr. Floyd, brother Floyd, was restrained … people were begging that he let him up, and (Floyd) himself was begging. He was trying, and yet he (Chauvin) literally strangled the life out of this man on camera.”Barber said one aspect of the trial that heartened him was seeing Chauvin’s former police colleagues reject the so-called “Blue Wall of Silence” and take the witness stand, testifying the force he used on Floyd was unreasonable, unnecessary and not written anywhere in Minneapolis Police Department’s policies and practices.“Something good is happening,” Barber said, “and that is that police are willing to contradict one another.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
