Now,I'm take civil engineering as my life.
Civil engineering is about community service, development, and improvement.
It involves the conception, planning, design, construction, and operation of facilities essential to modern life, ranging from transit systems to offshore structures to space satellites.
Civil engineers are problem solvers, meeting the challenges of pollution, traffic congestion, drinking water and energy needs, urban redevelopment, and community planning.
Hope whoever take civil engineering will enjoy with it.

winners verses losers!

The winner is always part of Answers;The losers is always part of problem
The winner has a programm;The loser has a excuse
The winner says, "let me do it for you";The loser says, "that is not my job"
The winner sees an answer for every problem;The loser sees a problem for every answer
When a winner says, "It may be difficult but it is possible";When a loser says, "It may be possible but it is too difficult"
When a winner makes a mistake, he says 'I was wrong';When a loser makes a mistake, he says, 'It wasn't my fault'
A winner makes Commitments;A loser makes Promises
Winner see the gain;Loser see the pain
Winners see the potential;Losers see the past
Winners choose wat they say;Losers say what they choose
Winner make it happen;Loser let it happen
Winners plan and prepare to win;Loser plans to win

critical thinking

A person can be good at critical thinking, meaning that the person can have the appropriate dispositions and be adept at the cognitive processes, while still not being a good (in the moral sense) critical thinker. For example, a person can be adept at developing arguments and then, unethically, use this skill to mislead and exploit a gullible person, perpetrate a fraud, or deliberately confuse and confound, and frustrate a project. The experts were faced with an interesting problem. Some, a minority, would prefer to think that critical thinking, by its very nature, is inconsistent with the kinds of unethical and deliberately counterproductive examples given. They find it hard to imagine a person who was good at critical thinking not also being good in the broader personal and social sense. In other words, if a person were "really" a "good critical thinker" in the procedural sense and if the person had all the appropriate dispositions, then the person simply would not do those kinds of exploitive and aggravating things. The large majority, however, hold the opposite judgment. They are firm in the view that good critical thinking has nothing to do with... any given set of ethical values or social mores. The majority of experts maintain that critical thinking conceived of as we have described it above, is, regrettably, not inconsistent with its unethical use. A tool, an approach to situations, these can go either way, ethically speaking, depending on the character, integrity, and principles of the persons who possess them. So, in the final analysis the majority of experts maintained that "it is an inappropriate use of the term to deny that someone is engaged in critical thinking on the grounds that one disapproves ethically of what the person is doing. What critical thinking means, why it is of value, and the ethics of its use are best regarded as three distinct concerns."

Children are all smiles and kisses on Hari Raya Aidilfitri, the day that marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. Although they might not show it, they are secretly tabulating just how much duit raya (festive money) they can wrestle out of the elders for being extra courteous and charming.
Giving small tokens of money to children during Aidilfitri is a custom of showing affection, something that most children expect from adults during Raya.
The tradition is very much alive, and a testament to this are the lines of people at the banks who need to exchange bundles of currency for crisp new notes in denominations of RM1, RM5, RM10, RM50 and even RM100 as Hari Raya approaches. While the adults wait at the banks, the kids are already making grand plans on how to spend their Raya loot.

group study???does it works????

Many college professors agree that group study enhances students’ performances, both in class discussions, as well as on tests.
In a group environment, students are less likely to procrastinate. After all, it’s easy to put off an assignment when you only have yourself to answer to, isn’t it? But when you know you have a whole group of people counting on you, you’ll be more likely to get the job done.
Group study also encourages students to explain things aloud. By speaking to and listening to others, students often improve on recall ability, or ability to remember information on test day.
Students who study with others are also forced to become more organized. Once you learn to date and label your notes, you’ll see that organized notes make much more sense at the end of the week than the jumbled, mix and match variety.
One more great benefit of group discussion is that the many perspectives improve your chances of anticipating test questions. Group members will always bring up ideas and thoughts you’d never considered. The various views are sure to pay off on test day!
Finally, you’ll likely find that the benefit of group study reaches far beyond the good results on test day. It will build self-confidence that you can use for the rest of your life. Speaking to small groups will prepare students for speaking to larger groups in the future—or more official groups such as college admission panels or hiring boards.
So go ahead and start building a group of like-minded students who share your goals for success. Be sure to develop a set of study rules to establish the “where’s” and “how’s” and stick by them. The results will show on report card day!

Advantages of Teaching with Short Works of Folklore

Here are some advantages of teaching with short works of folklore....

They are short! It is easy to distribute copies of short tales or rhymes to a whole class, discuss them during a class period, and compare a variety of examples relating to different topics, without needing time for extensive reading assignments.

They are fun! Many types of folklore are entertaining and most of us have fond memories of stories and rhymes we have known since childhood. Viewing illustrated versions or film adaptations can also add variety and enjoyment to class assignments.

They are memorable. Most tales and rhymes from oral traditions use patterns of language and plot that make them easy to retell and dear to the hearts of tellers and listeners
They are infinitely meaningful. Because folk and fairy tales represent human experience through symbols and archetypes, there is room for endless debate about how to interpret particular tales. They provide excellent examples of the complex interplay of realism, fantasy, and symbolism in literature. They can be analyzed in papers that do not require research, but there is also a wealth of recent research available on folklore, fairy tales and picture books. They can function as primary sources in complex research projects like any other literature

They unite children and adults. Many types of folklore have been reprinted and adapted in children's books in the past couple centuries, while older children and adults who don't read or hear folklore or picture books often lose touch with exciting parts of their own culture. Many recent storytellers, dramatists, and filmmakers endeavor to entertain the whole family, just as traditional storytellers have done around home or campfire for generations.
