It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
— Albert Einstein

“I have had many teachers in my lifetime. While we may think of teachers and students in relation to school, I like to think of my parents as being my first teachers. We are all born with innate instincts that no one can teach us; we know to cry when we are hungry or in pain, to laugh when we feel joy, to turn over, crawl, walk, and run. What my parents did teach me was how to use my instincts to create my life, and they provided me a safe environment with which to do so.
.
When I began school, I found another type of teacher and became a different type of student. In the beginning, my schoolteachers made learning fun; they challenged and encouraged me, allowed me to explore what I was capable of, to push beyond my limitations. I loved my teachers and loved learning so much that my favorite game to play with my younger sisters was “school”. Of course, I was always the teacher!
.

.

In later years, I became aware that not all teachers were the same. I learned that many teachers were more concerned with grades and performance, with being the best and the fittest. In those later years of my education, the joy of learning was lost as I was simply fed information to memorize by teachers who did not see me as an individual but simply another student. I no longer saw my teachers as people, either; my respect for them had started to fade.

.
I left school at the end of my 11th year; the joy of learning had been lost. I entered the workforce and found, in my colleagues, yet a new kind of teacher. Here, I was able to choose my teachers and my fields of interest; I felt as if I was free to learn once again. From these teachers, I learned how to apply my knowledge and skills, how to interact with and manage the people around me. While I could not name it at the time, those who I chose as my teachers not only had knowledge and information, they applied it in everyday life. They walked the walk and talked the talk and lived what they knew.
.

When I began my journey of self-discovery in order to enhance my personal relationships, understand family dynamics, and gain a greater sense of self, as well as become the best child care teacher I could, I met a teacher with whom I spent 15 years, first as a student and then as a teacher working alongside of her. With this teacher, I studied spiritual and personal development through meditation, opening to psychic and intuitive awareness, exploring diverse philosophies and esoteric beliefs, and engaging with my inner child. I was a full-time student of this teacher for two years before working side by side with her as a teacher. My dedication was so deep that I even lived on the same property with her for years.

During that time, I taught meditation and self-growth, and even taught child-care teachers internationally how to work more openly and effectively with children. I discovered the greatest reward in teaching was to witness the uniqueness, the potential, that lay dormant in each student and help them to give it life, not as the teacher or the world envisioned it should be, but as the student chose

Good Samaritan Ninjas Halt Mugging in Sydney Australia

Posted in Martial Arts, Uncategorized by farmerjaneusa on May 28, 2010

“In a rescue worthy of the Mutant Ninja Turtles, five Sydney ninjas went to the aid of a commuter as he was being robbed of his mobile phone in a Sydney alleyway.

The 27-year-old German medical student had been confronted by three thugs as he sat alone on a late-night train to Kingswood, in Sydney’s western suburbs on Wednesday night.

He refused to hand over his wallet when they demanded it, but they followed him off the train and saw their chance when he turned into the dimly lit alley.

But their assault was brought to a sudden stop when they looked up from kicking their victim and saw the ninjas, dressed completely in black, running toward them.

If they had looked a bit more carefully as they trailed the student into the alley, they might have noticed that the spot where they had chosen to launch their attack was right outside the doors of the Ninja Senshi Ryu school, a Japanese martial arts school that trains would be ninja warriors.

Even worse for the hapless muggers, a class happened to be in progress at the time. It was being taught by a sensei, or teacher, of 30 years experience in the specialised warrior art of Ninjutsu, an ancient martial art focusing on stealth, pressure points and weaponry.

The class was coming to an end when a ninjitsu student went outside and saw the attack on the student, who was coming to the end of an eight week exchange visit. Rushing back to class, he called on black belt instructor Kaylan Soto and three other students for help.”

The Universal Day of the Jedi Celebration – May 25th 2007 – May 25th 2010

Riley the Jedi – Loup Dargent

May 25th is the “annual Star Wars fan holiday”. It was originally pushed by fans to begin on May 25, 2007, the 30th anniversary of the release of the original Star Wars film.

Universal Day of the Jedi has been envisioned as a celebration of the entire saga, and fandom itself. The first Universal Day of the Jedi, on May 25, 2007, coincided with Celebration IV. The primary purpose of C4 as it is commonly abbreviated, was to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The first celebration was held May 24-28, 2007 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. May 24 was exclusively for members of Hyperspace, the Official Star Wars Fan Club.

From Wookieepedia:

The idea for Universal Day of the Jedi originated in 2006 as news and rumors began surfacing about how Lucasfilm could be planning to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars in 2007. The concept was first proposed by Greg Davies (former webmaster of fan site Shadow of the Sith) in an article posted on his website.
The topics and storylines of the Star Wars saga continue to impact several generations around the world in profound ways. Underneath the veil of a series of sci-fi plots, the viewer is asked to look at their world with new eyes and look within to their own morals, beliefs and prejudice.

The Predator: Featured in “The Men Who Stare at Goats”

If you don’t know what the predator is, it’s an awesome non-lethal self-defense tool used by George Clooney in “The Men Who Stare at Goats”.

George Clooney with the Predator in the Movie "The Men Who Stare at Goats"

It took quite a bit of digging around the internet, but I finally found the real Predator.

The Predator Defender was used by George Clooney in “The Men Who Stare at Goats”. It is a non-lethal self-defense weapon, created by Peter Brusso and inspired by the First Earth Battalion. The Predator was also featured in the documentary “Crazy Rulers of the World” by Jon Ronson.

The First Earth Battalion is a proto-mythical army created by Jim Channon during his time in the US Army.

The Predator is  a practical alternative to mace and pepper spray as it has an element of surprise and can be carried into places that don’t allow certain kinds of self-defence items and weapons.


If you buy one, let me know how you like it!  I haven’t had a chance to really try mine out on anyone… yet!
