Rescued little birdie

 

bird in a cage

When my two grandkids were biking inside the village, they found this little birdie hopping on the grass, they think it could have fallen from a nest on a tree somewhere. They called my husband to catch the bird for it might be eaten by some stray cats or some kids caught it  and turn the poor guy into play-toy (you know some kids do that) and die.

My grandson got this cage from their house, while hubby made an improvised nest out of fresh grass for the little bird to settle in in case it wants to sleep, lol but it stayed most of the time hanging on the stick. We put water and chicken feed (crushed corn and rice) for its food. From time to time, we put it outside the cage to see if it’s ready to fly and go home, but still it can’t fly yet and just hopped around. There were big birds of his kind, flying outside sometimes they will stay in electric cable on the post or on roofs nearby and make sounds as if calling the little bird which answers back.

On the third day, hubby decided to let go of the little bird and let it loose from the cage, sadly it can’t fly yet and just hopped from one grass to another, now we don’t know if it has survived and flew with the flock or was eaten by some stray cats. My grandkids were asking where the little guy was when they saw the empty cage, I told them what happened and they were sad, we just hoped he is now with his family and not at the stomach of a cat. 🙁 Anyways, I’m glad the kids have a compassionate heart for other creatures on earth other than humans.

Happy Children’s Day

Happy-childrens-day

The joy of every mother’s heart – our children. Like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, there is also a day dedicated for kids, in fact two days. June 1  is celebrated as Children’s Day and November 20 for International Children’s Day.

Children’s Day is recognized on various days in many places around the world, to honor children globally. It was first proclaimed by the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in 1925 and then established universally in 1954 to protect an “appropriate” day.

International Day for Protection of Children, observed in many countries as Children’s Day on June 1 since 1950, was established by the Women’s International Democratic Federation on its congress in Moscow (22 November 1949). Major global variants include a Universal Children’s Day on November 20, by United Nations recommendation. (source: Wikipedia)

Trick or Treat from the kids on the block

 

We had lots of guests these past 3 nights, from the 30th of October till this evening November 1, scary characters like zombies, ghosts, white and black ladies err kids been knocking on our door, not to scare us but to trick or treat and we are ready for them, we have prepared lots of goodies and candies for their treats, coz last year we were not. 🙁  Seems like they slowly adapting this Western tradition that weren’t here before, an influence of the outside world I guess.

Anyways, before giving them the goodies, we asked them to pose for a ” photoshoot” and give their most frightening pose which they gladly did. Aren’t they looked cute?  🙂

Should Cell Phones be Banned in Educational Institutions?

Should Cell Phones be Banned in Educational Institutions?

Gone are the days of the famous “Get Smart” shoe phone. Also long-gone are the days of having a mobile phone that could only be used in a car and came with its own backpack. Instead, we have cell phone devices that fit in the palm of our hand and slide neatly into our pocket. In 2011, there were 835 smart phone users worldwide, with 5.6 regular cell phone users. By 2015, global Internet usage will double, with most of that usage being access from a mobile phone. And the idea that only adults are using this technology is a myth. It is said that four out of five teenagers use a wireless device, and they find it a marker of social status and a valuable device for communication and entertainment. But with children having access to cell phones, and much of their time being spent as students, an important question arises: Should cell phones be banned in educational institutions?

Many people do not see cell phones as a problem in educational institutions. They say that cell phones can be turned off or set on vibrate during class time, so that they do not serve as a distraction. It makes parents feel more comfortable to be able to reach their child if there is an emergency, and it makes children feel more secure as well. Also, cell phones allow students the opportunity to communicate their after-school where-a-bouts, without bogging-down the one phone that a school facility is able to provide.

In the classroom itself, cell phones can be seen as quite useful. They are smaller than laptops or computer monitors, yet have many of the same features. Internet access is almost necessary in educational facilities these days, and students can conduct research at their own desk using their phone or buy essays online. The apps available for phones can be helpful, giving information about astronomy, literature, or even geography. Many students use text features to ask fellow classmates questions, while others use their phone as an organizational tool by putting dates for tests and assignments into day planners.

Of course, the argument against having cell phones allowed in educational institutions is strong as well. Cell phones are known to be quite distracting in a classroom setting, both for the student with the phone as well as those around him/her. Even on vibrate a cell phone makes noise, and receiving messages will distract from class work or discussion. Also, cell phones offer more methods for bullying. Threats can be sent secretly to another student, or pictures can be taken and circulated around, invading the privacy of other people.

Some people may say that older students – those in high school and university – are more mature and will be more responsible with their phones, but there is no proof of that. College professors often complain about people texting in class. Besides, due to higher pressure for grades, the temptation to cheat on exams is much more likely for students – and much easier to manage with a cell phone.
