Facing America’s High Dropout Rates

This is the VOA Special English Education Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com

Fewer than sixty percent of students now entering four-year American colleges are likely to graduate. The completion rate is lower than for almost any other wealthy country. Poor and minority students have the worst graduation rate.

A new book about America’s public universities explores the complex causes of the high dropout rate. The book is called “Crossing the Finish Line.”

President Obama wants the United States to again have the world’s highest percentage of college graduates by two thousand twenty. But to finish college, children first have to reach the starting line by getting there.

On September eighth, the president gave a nationally broadcast speech to students about the importance of staying in school. He spoke on the first day of classes at a high school in Virginia. He talked about personal responsibility, and used himself as an example of someone who overcame difficulties.

President Obama said: “My father left my family when I was two years old, and I was raised by a single mother who struggled at times to pay the bills and wasnt always able to give us things the other kids had. There were times when I missed having a father in my life. There were times when I was lonely and felt like I didnt fit in.”

But he told students that problems in their own lives should not stop them from learning. Mister Obama said: “That’s no excuse for talking back to your teacher, or cutting class or dropping out of school. Thats no excuse for not trying.”

This was not the first presidential speech to students. Ronald Reagan spoke from the White House in nineteen eighty-eight. And George H.W. Bush spoke from a school in Washington in nineteen ninety-one.

But many conservatives criticized plans for the speech. Some called it “socialized education” or federal interference in local schools. Others feared it would be too political. Some schools decided not to show the speech. But the White House released the text the day before the speech, and that calmed a lot of critics.

On September sixth, on the CBS program “Face the Nation,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said thirty percent of students do not graduate from high school. He called the dropout rate “staggering.” It represents more than a million students every year who enter ninth grade but do not complete twelfth grade.

And that’s the VOA Special English Education Report.

MIRACLE ENGINEERING: SIMPLE METHODS TO HUNGER IN OUR WORLD

BY USAGE OF SOYA/LEAF PROTEINS
According to statistics of the World Health Organization 800 million people (of whom 200 million are under 5 years of age ) suffer” chronicle hunger” (=described as “protein deficiency”medically) .Actually I do not belive in the reality of these numbers because a person just with a small piece of land can grow his foods or he can get his protein need from the eggs of 2-3 chickens or from the milk of one goat.Let’s not forget that Gandhi who founded India fighting against the biggest powers of his time had only one goat and for years he just lived on the milk he took from the goat. This was also what I heard from the intellectuals&academicians of the African countries when I went to meetings under name ” Save Africa from hunger”. They were really hurt and offended by being called so and explained that “mostly wars make people migrate to other places and this makes them lose their lands and thus foods”.But still the methods I will explain you for obtaining proteins and solving hunger are at least useful against poverty and chronicle diseases of our day like Diabetes , Cancer and High cholesterol.
So what’s chronical hunger or Medically described protein deficiency ?We need 22 amino acids daily that we take from proteins. 14 of these amino acids can be produced by our body but 8 of them can not. So these 8 are “called essential amino acids” and foods containing these amino acids are called First Grade protein Foods like meat,poultry, dairy products,eggs and soya.According to medical considerations, the daily protein need of a person is 0.75 gr/kg..Namely a 50 kg person needs 37,5 gr 1. grade protein a day If we add 30 % defatted(containing 51% protein) soy flour-75 gr- to 250 gr bread-which is almost the global standard- an avarage person’s daily protein requirement will be fulfilled perfectly.Such a “SMART BREAD” is the shortest solution for chronicle hunger of the world .In 1995 I wrote an article about the subject in Turkey and the municipality of Sivas city began to produce this bread after consulting me and the Medicine Faculty in their city. They put only 5 % defatted soya flour in bread.This added the nutrition value of one glass of milk(200 grams= 20 cents )in each bread & they produced 20.000 breads /day. There was a profit of 40.000USD/day to people which meant 1,5 million USD/year and the total profit was 3 million USD in the 2 years they made it. I wrote that if this was done nationwide with 30 % soya flour there would be a profit of about 4 milliard USD/year compared to meat consumption but as you may guess the politicians did not pay the faintest attention to my words. It is clear that the reason of hunger in the world is again us human beings.Of course such a protein intake would also cure chronicler diseases like Diabetes , Cancer and High cholesterol in Turkey and at least 30 milliard dollars spent for these illnesses per year would be saved.
Anyway the second way is ,as you know it is possible to make products like milk,cheese,yogurt,meatball,etc from soybeans. The problem here again as you know is the high cost of soymilk machines .Here I show you 2 inventions from me to make these machines 10 times cheaper and better.

The third way is extracting proteins from leaves here are some photos showing how simply and quickly you can obtain it. and I am giving you their webaddress for detailed info. http://www.leafforlife.org/ Best Regards

Dead Kennedys Jock O Rama

You really like gorillas?
We’ve got just the pet for you
It’s the way you’re forced to act
To survive our schools

Make your whole life revolve around sports
Walk tough-don’t act too smart
Be a mean machine
Then we’ll let you get ahead

Jock-O-Rama-Save my soul
We’re under the thumb of the Beef Patrol
The future of America is in their hands
Watch it roll over Niagara Falls
Pep rally in the holy temple
And you’re forced to go
Masturbate en masse
With the favored religious cult
Cheerleaders yell-“Ra Ra Team”
From the locker room parades the prime beef
When archaeologists dig this up
They’ll either laugh or cry

Jock-O-Rama-On the brain
Redneck-a-thon drivin’ me insane
The future of America is in their hands
Watch it roll over Niagara Falls
Unzip that old time religion
On the almighty football field
Beerbellies of all ages
Come to watch the gladiators bleed
“Now boys, this game ain’t played for fun
You’re going out there to win
How d’ya win?
Get out there
And snap the other guy’s knee!”

Beat ’em up! Beat ’em up!
Ra Ra Ra
Snap those spinal cords
Ha Ha Ha

The star quarterback lies injured
Unconscious on the football field
Looks like his neck’s been broken
Seems to happen somewhere every year

His mom and dad clutch themselves and cry
Their favorite son will never walk again
Coach says, “That boy gave a hundred percent
What spirit
What a man”

But who cares?
Games over-Let’s go get wasted man
To the 7-11, to the liquor store
Let’s party all night and party some more

Another Trans-Am
Wrapped itself around a telephone pole
“I ain’t drunk, officer
I just fell gettin’ out of my car”

Don’t worry about it, son
We were that way when we were young
You’ve got all the skills
To make a good businessman

Jock-O-Rama-that’s the law
Come lick the butts of the Beef Patrol
If the future of America is handed to them
Watch it roll over Niagara Falls

——————–
The Three Ravens

There were three ravens sat on a tree,
Down a down, hey down, hey down
They were as black as they might be,
With a down.
The one of them said to his mate.
“O where shall we our breakfast take?”
With a down, derry, derry, derry down, down.

Down in yonder green field,
Down a down, hey down, hey down
There lies a knight slain e’en his shield,
With a down.
His hounds they lie down at his feet
So well they do their master keep.
With a down, derry, derry, derry down, down.

His hawks they fly so eagerly
Down a down, hey down, hey down
There is no fowl dare come him nigh,
With a down.
Down there comes a fallow doe
As great with child as she might go.
With a down, derry, derry, derry down, down.

She lifted up his bloody head,
Down a down, hey down, hey down
And kissed his wounds that were so red,
With a down.
She got him up upon her back
And carried him to earthen lake.
With a down, derry, derry, derry down, down.

She buried him before the prime,
Down a down, hey down, hey down
She was dead herself ere even-song time,
With a down.

God send every gentleman
Such hawks, such hounds, and such a leman,
With a down, derry, derry, derry down, down.
