school isn’t just for learning

Well 206.126.170.20, I disagree :P.

I’m sure there is pressure in school to conform, but that shouldn’t be used as an argument to take away all of their freedom of choice as to what they should wear. Just because there are examples of trends doesn’t mean that’s all thats involved in freedom of expression…people should have the right to buck the trend, start a new trend, choose who they want to be. You’ve just picked out one negative example, but there’s a lot more to fashion than you give it credit for. Although I understand that this law will target only specific clothing styles, I still think its wrong because unless it adversely affects students learning, its really up to them.

Also I’m not saying let the high school kids decide whats fair or right to wear, but I did say that the simplest solution is just to inform them on the importance of a dress code in business, so that they can change their clothes for that situation. You say that people have trouble adapting to the dress code…I mean its the students loss. If they can’t understand something as simple as a dress code, do they really deserve to work on a level that is more intellectually challenging than that simple decision? I mean surely you and other perfectly normal people sometimes dress in sweat pants at home, or wear some shabby old clothes that you wouldn’t wear to work. You wouldn’t make the argument that people have to get used to a dress code, so they should wear a suit and tie at home all the time! Different situations allow for different dress codes, and school simply isn’t a place where you have to dress in formal business attire.

There are other outlets for creativity and self-expression, but just because they exist shouldn’t mean that we should close the “lesser” outlets. Also who are we to make the decision? Fashion is extremely important to some people, some make a career around it (i.e. fashion designers).

Your last argument actually goes against what you’re saying…you say that you’ve never met an employer outside of fast food that considers how an applicant presents themselves…I’m dubious about this, according to the many employment guides and counselors I’ve talked to, but if you stand by that then you should be arguing that dress code doesn’t matter in school because presentation is irrelevant. Although perhaps you mean just the interview, although I’d think thats the most important part.

http://www.businessinsider.com/steve-jobs-were-apple-we-dont-wear-suits-we-dont-even-own-suits-2010-7

Steve Jobs, former CEO of Apple Inc., could dispute that. Have you ever seen him or his colleagues were suits or even any kind of uniforms to work, excluding retail store employees? No, Steve wears whatever he wants (black turtleneck sweater, blue jeans, sneakers, glasses) because he likes to. “We’re Apple. We Don’t Wear Suits. We Don’t Even Own Suits.” Lol, the understatement of the decade.

My apologies, that last part of my last post was a typo, I should have typed “does NOT consider”. I know from experience apple does in fact have a dress code, I’ve been there. It’s lenient, but they are still expect that employees be presentable – specifically no sagging pants or relieving clothing. No ones talking about putting all the kids in public high schools in suits and ties, what Florida is enforcing here is nothing more then the basic expectations in 99% the adult world….. Steve Jobs may not ever wear a suit but he does take great care in how he presents himself – fitted jeans, turtle neck (tucked in), black belt, clean sneakers. Not a three piece but still kind of conservative. Point is I’d bet cash you can’t see anybodies underpants in the apple board room.

Athletes prepare for 2012 Summer Paralympics at the Paralympic Fitness Centre

Monday, August 27, 2012 

London, England — As Paralympians ready for the Games which are set to open later this week, they have access to a world class fitness center inside the Paralympic Village which is designed to maximise their pre-Game preparations.

According to volunteers staffing the center, instead of being a single large room, as in Beijing, the building has numerous rooms. It, along with the adjacent Village Services Centre, is designed to be converted into a school after the games conclude. Rooms have been structured as a gym, an auditorium, and science laboratories.

Gym equipment is supplied by Technogym, an Italian firm that has supplied gym equipment for the Olympics since 2000. Equipment has been provided not just for for the Fitness Centre, but for gyms at all the Olympic venues. The newest equipment is oriented toward maximum flexibility, allowing athletes to exercise the particular muscles that they most require for their sport.

In addition to the equipment, the Fitness Centre also provides instructors trained in the use of the equipment, the likes of which athletes from many countries have never seen before. There are also a number of instructors available to provide motivational training.

Heal With Homeopathy By Dr. Batra S

Submitted by: Dr. Batra

Use of Homeopathy:

At Dr. Batra’s we have successfully used some rare and uncommon homeopathic remedies in hair loss cases and have got excellent results from the same. The fruitful use of these remedies comes from our vast experience and in-depth knowledge of this science. Clinical research on the homeopathic remedy Thuja has been conducted only recently and has shown its beneficial effects in hair loss cases as a DHT inhibitor; but at Dr. Batra’s we have been using this remedy for more than last 25 years in hair loss treatment. This clearly demonstrates our experience and expertise in homeopathy.

Tele-homeopathy to the rescue

YouTube Preview Image

The trouble with having a doctor who doesn t make house calls is you have to be in pretty good health to find out how sick you are. Timely medical help is often the difference between life and death. In the absence of house visits, tele-medicine comes as a boon. It cuts out the helpless anxiety of waiting for the doctor while the patient s condition worsens. For people living or stranded in remote locations that lack reliable medical facilities, it is particularly crucial.

Luckily, in today s borderless world, geography is now truly history. Telecommunication facilities enable healthcare providers to reach those patients that cannot reach them. Tele-homeopathy is a time, money and lifesaving way to reach and benefit thousands of people.

Let me relate a recent example. A five-year-old child, Mohan was detected with a critical condition known as Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome (WAS). WAS is a rare inherited disorder characterised by a low level of blood platelets, eczema, recurrent infections, and a high risk of cancer. It is so rare that it affects only one in every 250,000 male children. The average WAS patient lives about four years; those who survive into adolescence often develop cancer. Death usually occurs from severe bleeding or overwhelming infection in the first few years of life. When Mohan was born, his parents had no idea that he was suffering from a critical ailment with such a poor prognosis.

They had consulted various doctors and the child had been hospitalised frequently. When they came to our clinic in Bangalore, our doctors found Mohan suffering from severe eczema with intense itching with a history of recurrent colds and coughs and hemorrhagic tendencies. It was crucial to involve a number of specialists to treat each of these various complaints. Our dermatologist in Mumbai prescribed Mohan s mother an exact skin management programme. Our MD Pediatrician and MD Physician provided treatment guidance and advice. Plus two homeopath specialists saw Mohan, spoke to his parents and prescribed treatment, though one was sitting at Hyderabad and the other in Chennai. This multi-consultation was rendered possible through Telehomeopathy s interactive video facility that enables patients to simultaneously interface with doctors at different locations and provides doctors access to critical patient information and records. All these doctors had access to Mohan s reports and necessary investigations were suggested. At the end of the telehomeopathy conference, our experts were collectively able to chart a line of treatment for Mohan, which is now yielding results.

Muslim hair stylist sues hairdresser over alleged discrimination

Friday, November 9, 2007 

British-born Muslim hair stylist Bushra Noah is currently undertaking legal action against the owner of a hair salon for alleged religious discrimination. Noah is suing London hair salon owner Sarah Desroiser. Desroiser who runs a salon in King’s Cross, has said that she would not accept Noah as a stylist if Noah’s hair was covered. Noah, like many devout Muslims keeps her hair covered in public places, believing it to be immodest otherwise.

Noah claims that her headscarf is a fundamental part of her religious beliefs and that wearing the scarf would not interfere in her carrying out the job at all. Desrosiers said that it is not discrimination but rather that “the essence of my line of work is the display of hair. To me, it’s absolutely basic that people should be able to see the stylist’s hair. It has nothing to do with religion. It is just unfortunate that for her covering her hair symbolises religion.” Desosiers added that she had worked with Muslims in the past and employs a Muslim accountant.

Noah claims that the state of her own hair is irrelevant to her ability to style others hair.

The last few years have seen a string of similar cases in Britain. Last year, there was a case over whether a British Airways employee could wear a prominent cross, and another case in which a teacher argued that she had a right to wear a Jilb?b (a traditional Islamic dress that covers almost the entire body) in the classroom. In that case, the teacher lost in the High Court.
