Which Mode of Education Will You Choose? A Traditional or an Online Education System

With time and evolvement in the technology there is a change in the education system. Now we have different modes of education i.e. the traditional education, distance learning and the online courses. All have importance of their own and all will equally help us in providing us with great level of education and also in getting better employment opportunities. The traditional mode of education is still the most popular and the most expensive among all. Distance learning is not very popular as it doesn’t give the best mode of education for the students and also lacks in the provision of knowledge. Online courses is however, getting more and more popular with each passing day and is also less expensive and, in some cases, even is free.Neglecting distance learning for this post only, we can compare the traditional and the online mode of education. A student enrolled in an online mode of education can get education from short courses to degree programs, whereas a traditional mode of education, for sure will provide every type of education to every class of student. There are online universities, colleges and other institutes providing online courses and then there are regular institutes providing education to both the traditional and the online students. The choice of education is up to the student. The student can get education through any medium and that all depends on the availability of the student.The case for a traditional mode of educationTraditional education is the oldest and the most common way of getting education and it’s also the recommended way of study for the young students. We can look at the pros and cons of this mode of education to know it better:Advantages

A one-to-one interaction between the teacher and the student. It’s easy to deliver things to the ones sitting in front of you and also easy to get for the students to understand in a better way.

The most common way of providing education.

Can choose from number of options.

The more preferable by all i.e. the students, the teachers, parents and the government also.

Education along with other facilities like: cafeterias, libraries, sport and other recreational activities.
Disadvantages

Education is expensive, especially in institutes where the standards, quality and the system of education is on a much higher level.

Students can have to travel long distances to reach to their educational institutes and sometimes even have to move to other locations in order to get a good standard of education. This will also increase their expenses.

Not very suitable for students doing a full-time job.

Not much flexible in terms of study hours.
The case of an online mode of educationNot very new, but as compare to the traditional education mode is new. This too has its own pros and cons and these must be kept into considerations before opting any online course:Advantages

Usually cheaper than the traditional education system, as the cost is minimized to the lowest level.

A good but less effective mode of interaction between a teacher and a student.

The option to get education from any online institute, no matter how far that institute is. This will minimize the cost of travelling and other expenses.

Is more suitable for the people in full-time employment.

A vast option for online courses is available for students, seeking education through the online mode.

Flexibility in the study hours.
Disadvantages

Students are unable to get the facility of any recreational and sports activities, a traditional student can get.

As this mode requires an internet connection and a computer system, and these are meant to be effected by any natural or unnatural cause, their education can be affected badly.

Not preferable by everyone and is not very effective as compared to the traditional mode of education.

Although, vast online courses are available but still there is a limitation on this. You can’t become a practicing surgeon or a doctor through getting education by this mode of education.
This is just a short review on the traditional and the online mode of education system, a much vast comparison can be made and then the conclusion can be made in choosing the best education system. Each of these systems have their own benefits and drawbacks and that too will differ for every type of education seeker.

Health and Fitness and Safety Programs Inside the United Kingdom

Health and fitness and safe practices courses in the United KingdomYou can find numerous agencies in the market that produce education in various health and fitness and safe practices courses, the biggest of them being IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Well being)!!! Founded in 1945, this chartered body has far more than 37,000 members and is a pioneer in setting up standards and support groups in this field. They offer resources and guidance for wellness and security training which is often implemented as a result of in-house trainers, external trainers, or as a result of public courses, e-learning, and distance learning. Apart from providing education for companies, they also present instruction for schools and run campaigns in this field. According to statistics, more than 120,000 people take IOSH wellbeing and security training each and every year.Website Management Basic safety Instruction Scheme or SMSTS is an additional health and wellbeing training course that was devised to assist web page managers. The course was aimed at developing knowledge, creating awareness and understanding of legal, moral and social responsibilities by the managers in terms of wellness, basic safety and welfare on their respective development sites. In recent times, it has come to be regarded as the most respected qualification for folks aspiring to be in management positions, particularly inside the building sector.An additional study course that was introduced alongside SMSTS was a two-day Web site Management Education Scheme Supervisor’s Course or SSSTS. The latter training is aimed at 1st time managers who were just about to receive supervisory powers and responsibilities.It is also imperative that all organisations impart fundamental very first aid teaching to all of their employees. These initial help programs assist in case of any accident, illness or injury by supplying health-related intervention till professional support arrives. A initially aid program generally consists of a series of uncomplicated strategies that any individual can be trained to perform. You will discover basically two primary courses – Emergency Initially Assist at Work a one day course that covers the basics such as cardiac arrest and severe bleeding and First Aid at Get the job done a three-day training course covering the full spectrum of very first support.So, get began and come across out about the agencies providing wellness and security instruction in your area so that you are able to get your workers certified and get the job done without tension.Wellbeing and basic safety teaching not only helps in providing immediate medical attention, but also averts injury as the organisations trained in the training course already take vital steps for the wellbeing of their workers.

One Day We Might Be Able to Have a Diet of Junk Food Without Affecting Our Health and Fitness

Whenever I hear about some new drug or technique to tackle obesity or protect us from diet-related disease I always think of the professor from Futurama. For non-Futurama fans: the professor typically begins “Good news everybody!” before announcing some incredibly sophisticated, yet crazily inappropriate invention which has either fundamentally missed some basic point or is ludicrously over-engineered.These days there seems to be a prevailing sense that we are entitled to derive pleasure from everything we do; because of this, many people don’t get the idea of permanently giving up foods they like. Instead, we encourage scientists to find professor-like solutions to what they see as the problem. “Good news everybody! Using my digesta-block-a-tron I can stop fat from being metabolised. I just install this dial in your chest and you can choose how much fat from a meal gets digested!”The basic point apparently being missed – the elephant in the room, if you like – is that if we all stopped eating junk, we would start enjoying the basic food we currently think we are not able to enjoy and the medical problems we are spending billions trying to resolve would begin to diminish in the population. Of course I accept the near-impossibility of this – I still daydream about cakes thanks to my latent sugar addiction. We have been led by the nose into a mire of confused cravings and unclear directives from organisations with misguided and dubious agendas.Yet it’s by no means clear the scientists’ intentions are quite so innocent. A cynic would say that their ‘solutions’ are not driven by the desire to uphold our right to enjoy our food, but by the desire for money – for them, their employers, or both. A cynic would say they are not missing the point at all – they simply don’t care.The rest of us are missing the point precisely because of the scientists and what they tell us:Well hey, the scientists have found the problem – we just to turn off those obesity genes!…or maybe we all just need to take some drugs like statins to prevent us getting heart disease!…and it’s not that we shouldn’t eat so much sweet food – we were just sweetening it the wrong way!…and it’s not that we should eat less starchy food – we just have to remember to block its digestion using more drugs!…So imagine this: you eat a piece of chocolate cake. It looks like chocolate cake, tastes like chocolate cake and has the texture of chocolate cake. Yet when you have finished eating it, you are not left with that wired, sugar-loaded feeling, and more to the point, do not experience the sugar low 30 minutes later. The reason these expected feelings did not transpire is that it was not chocolate cake – at least not as we currently understand it. For reasons I will come onto, what you have just eaten was nutritionally equivalent to a steak of grass-fed beef, servings of carrot, broccoli and zucchini, and a handful of wild-growing berries and nuts.There are likely to be billions of research dollars being pumped into taste research, given the potential for commercial applications. If at some point, scientists are genuinely able to create the cake described above, and if it genuinely has precisely the same impact on our bodies as the steak, vegetables, berries and nuts, would any of us still want to eat healthy food? Would the doctrine of self-discipline central to the health and fitness industry lose its meaning? If we could choose what we thought we were eating but ensure that what our bodies were getting was nutritionally optimal, would it all become too easy?How might the scientists achieve this? What follows is educated speculation. For the purposes simplifying the discussion I talk about food as if it were made up of a homogeneous mass of the same molecule.One possibility, and the one we are most familiar with today, is trying to find molecules that taste like one thing but are in fact another – just as we have done with artificial sweeteners. Yet the problems with this approach became evident soon after well-intentioned but deeply misguided regulatory bodies allowed them to be included in our foods.Until now we have been less interested in what a molecule does once it has passed the taste test. Imposter molecules like Aspartame have successfully made things taste sweet, but then had other, undesirable effects. Finding a molecule that tastes like one thing but digests like another might be an approach doomed to failure. After all, our bodies are used to dealing with molecules that occur naturally in food – so unless the molecule that is digesting really is the naturally occurring one, we are back in the Aspartame situation where there are potential side effects.Yet maybe there is a way the molecule of real food could be cloaked by another molecule, only to be released by the digestion process. The cloaking molecule has one taste, but when digestion begins it releases the molecule of genuine food. Of course for this to work, the cloaking molecule would have to be a harmless by-product. Not only that, but by changing the digestion process it’s possible that however harmless the by-product of de-cloaking, something will be different. You can’t fool millions of years of evolution that easily.If there is a safe way this can be achieved, it’s likely to be by going straight to the brain. We are already close to commercially available computer game controllers that use brain signals; and Sony clearly thinks there might be a future in sending signals the other way so that senses like taste can be controlled externally because it has just patented a mechanism by which this might be achieved. This is another area into which billions of research dollars must be being poured. Might the two areas of well-funded research meet?If we can fool the brain into thinking the food has the right taste and texture then all we have to do now is make it look like the food we like – much easier. In 10 years, when the Wii comes with a standard headset for controlling games with your mind and receiving feedback from the game, could there be a ‘Wii Taste’ game which has an accompanying range of Nintendo foods?If this does happen in our lifetime, what does it mean for us? Should we be glad that we can now eat junk but still have a healthy diet? Would there be a hole in the life of those who gain satisfaction from sticking to a rigorously healthy diet? Perhaps they would find other outlets for this need.And what about our palettes? These would still face ruination with the constant barrage of junk taste, regardless of the nutritional value behind it. Perhaps this would not matter if we are free to eat junk all the time anyway -we might no longer need a sensitive palette.However, we might not have to worry about these questions any soon, as even the Wii Foods approach may present problems. It seems that when we chew and swallow food, the body does more than just tell us how it tastes. Recent research into artificial sweeteners has linked their consumption to obesity. The theory is that the sweet taste is a cue for the digestion system to prepare to receive calories. When these calories do not materialise, those changes end up making us even hungrier than we were before.So although this is an area that will be inevitably be pushed hard by science, in the short to medium term it is unlikely to herald a new age in which the meddling of scientists with our food and taste does not have unintended consequences. Perhaps eventually they will become such skilled manipulators of the brain and food that we will be able to enjoy virtual junk food without any adverse affects on our bodies, but in the meantime we would do well to continue our quest for self-discipline.
