Kids Health in the Classroom

Some days ago I readed an article about computer translation programs giving confusing and incomplete instructions to Spanish-speaking people in the United States. They receive prescription instructions from the pharmacy so poorly translated that the medications are potentially hazardous to their health. Read the full article from here.

Talking to the Pharmacists to ask questions about medicines is very important to our kids and we must to know answers for educational purposes only:

In this page you can listen on the speakers about common problems with childhood medications and tips from the Pharmacist.

The Girl Effect

The Girl Effect is the powerful social and economic change brought about when girls have the opportunity to participate in their society.

Adolescent girls are uniquely capable of raising the standard of living in the developing world.

Girls are the most likely agents of change, but they are often invisible to their societies and to our media.

When everyone -- girls, parents, teachers, executives, artists, hairdressers, forest rangers, rock stars, presidents, investors, advertisers, skateboarders, truckers, cowboys, organizations, chefs, teenagers -- knows about The Girl Effect, then real change can happen.

The Girl Effect site is just the beginning. The end is nothing less than ending poverty with CARE!

In some pages, a notepad is displayed next to the title. Placing the cursor over this notepad will reveal a list of supplementary vocabulary .

Gypsy by Shakira

Broke my heart
Down the road
Spend the weekend
Sewing the pieces back on

Crayons and dolls pass me by
Walking gets too boring
When you learn how to fly

Not the homecoming kind
Take the top off
And who knows what you might find

Won't confess all my sins
You can bet I'll try it
But I can't always win

'Cause I'm a gypsy
But are you coming with me?
I might steal your clothes
And wear them if they fit me
I never made agreements
Just like a gypsy
And I won't back down
'Cause life's already hurt me
And I won't cry
I'm too young to die
If you're gonna quit me
'Cause I'm a gypsy

('Cause I'm a gypsy)

WAR by the Father of the USA Constitution

James Madison was the fourth (1809–1817) President of the United States. He is traditionally regarded as the Father of the United States Constitution.

Letters and Other Writings of James Madison:

"Of all the enemies to public liberty WAR is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. WAR is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In WAR, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of WAR, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual WARFARE."

"Perhaps it is a universal truth that the loss of Liberty at home is to be charged to the provisions against danger, real or imagined from abroad."

"If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."

Racism help to the dehumanization of the enemy
