Assignments Are Due

I think students who take courses online classes are busier than ever before. They have a job, life, school, and children, or taking care of an elderly parent.  Are they stressed out? Of course, they are. They must manage everything and even staying up late to finish an assignment.

Time management and scheduling are the keys to be successful.  Students have two jobs. They work at their 9 to 5 job, and when they get home, they have to do more things to prepare themselves for the next task they have to do. In other words, personal stuff. And if they have a child or an older adult. They have more priority than education. Staying in good health is necessary and staying alive too.

I don’t understand why professors give the student more assignments to do. Professors tell their student to prioritize what they need to do. Have a calendar on hand, make a schedule and make time for yourself too. Other students maybe lazy and they forgot what assignments they need to do. Some students are smart, and they do assignments on time. Professors want to teach the students how to be responsible but calling their parents and telling that they missed a task – is not a good idea. Reminding the whole class when the assignment is due is the proper thing to do. If you think I am wrong, it’s like Professor doesn’t care about their students anymore and they get a bad review when the students must evaluate the professors at the end of the semester. The professors receive a grade too. Professors remind your students constantly when the assignments are due. If you think I am wrong, why you didn’t you get the award for the professor of the year award?

The professors can spam the students in their school email account and their blackboard and Moodle account to make sure they do the assignments.

Social Media helps too. But it could be awkward if you are besties with your professor on snap chat, Facebook, or Instagram. Pictures. Whoa.

The professors keep telling their students they had to be responsible for everything of they have to learn and prepared for anything. Do they still do pop quizzes in colleges, universities, and online? Students read your syllabus. If the students can’t read the syllabus, get the audio portion of the syllabus. Do they do that? Have an audio part of the syllabus? If so, that’s great, if not – you are lost.

Professors should limit their assignment or give them choices of what to do. Because students have a load of assignments and projects to do and deadlines are due.  Students need rest and sleep too. If a student gives a professor an apple, use it to your advantage, if a student is sleeping in your class throw the apple at them.

Blackboard and Moodle are now together and more convenient to do their assignments and use discussing boards to talk back and forth. It’s like a classroom where you do not have to raise your hand but engage in conservation of the subject or get help. Using a video chat may help, who wants to see a person either half-naked in their pajamas or seeing someone in the background doing inappropriate things.

American Got Talent: The Best Source of Laughter and Get Your Scare On

AGT

America’s Got Talent. Wow. Great talent. It is the platform to make people dreams come true, even if they don’t make it, they got the recognition they deserve and even X to prove it by one of the judges.  It’s nice to be live on stage in front of the audience and millions of people watching you. Stage Fright?

All the judges were prepping before going onstage, including Howie Mandel, he even blows dry his hair. He has no hair. Maybe he does have hair somewhere on his body.

Ian Brown, a contestant with no talent, wanted to be a judge on AGT, it is not an easy job to do. For one thing, you have to be likable and have a great sense of humor, preferable a comedian, Like Howie Mandel who was seated behind him. Simon’s best friend. They did share a hair dryer together.

When Mike the contestant performed a song, it was unusual. He played with his hands, that was strange enough. Even Ian did not use his sense of humor. If I were Ian, I would say to Mike: “Did you wash your hands before coming on stage?” insult comedy is always the best. For Ian, he wanted to tell as is it. Ian wasn’t funny, and Simon missed Howie, and nobody can’t replace Howie Mandel.  Both acts were no good. Here’s the video

The long hair beauty that scared U.S. version of American Got Talent, Scared Riana, is indeed a remarkable illusion. Remember it’s an act and character, and she can creep you out with her magic. And she won Asia’s Got Talent over a year ago. So that’s good. What she did with her prize package, come to America and perform for America’s Got Talent. It’s a free country. She can do anything. People leave her alone. I hope she stays. She‘s one to watch, and I hope she stays in the competition. Here’s the video.

If you are stress out, you should watch this Vicki Barbolak

If you are still stressed out, you should watch this La Fontain Uname, watch it.

Be sure to America’s Got Talent on Tuesday Night on NBC at 8pm. TV is not boring

She really wants to be discovered. She is very talented. She wants to be a megastar. She sang with Rachel Platten strip down version of “Fight Song,” it was phenomenon, her voice is stunning.

The Ice Cream Truck

Ice Cream Truck

When a local ice cream man who has a love for nostalgia starts to kill some of her neighbors, Mary is torn between her mature instincts that something is wrong and the distracting memories of her younger days.

In other words, it was a very creepy movie, that never got a limited screening when it came in the fall of 2017. I wanted ice cream when I was watching the movie, instead, I got a popcorn flavor ice cream for promotion and it was free, the flavor was Lemon meringue pie, the drink I had to pay for it.

Writer and director Megan Freels Johnston wrote the screenplay with the elements of a slasher flick, social satire, and psychological portrait of American life.

It reminds me of David Lynch in the beautiful way it was filmed, as well as the deliberately methodical pace. But that was intentional, similar to the pace and main character in Lost In Translation, which also conveys the experiences of a person in a fish out of water realm of uneasiness, triggered by new and unfamiliar surroundings.

Deanna Russo’s acting is spot on as a woman dealing with loneliness, boredom, the faded nostalgia of her teen years as well as the constant onslaught of awkward strangers and neighbors who repeatedly invade her fragile bubble of isolation. Plus, she is gorgeous.

Truth or Dare

thru or dare 3

Olivia and Lucas and their group of college friends travel to Mexico for one last getaway before graduation. While there, a stranger convinces one of the students to play a seemingly harmless game of truth or dare with the others. Once the game starts, it awakens something evil — a demon which forces the friends to share dark secrets and confront their deepest fears. The rules are simple but wicked — tell the truth or die, do the dare or die, and if you stop playing, you die.

How are you going to live? Don’t play it!

So would you watch it?  Tell the truth. You will watch it. What happened to spin the bottle game, that was my favorite game when I was in high school. What I did was too embarrassed to tell, not even for a blog post.  I was a teenager once, and it was stupid. My friends, they are married with children and live they out of state, which is good.

And by the way, if your teens want to go to Mexico for Spring Break, make sure they have life Insurance. Going across the border may not be the best Spring Break, it could be dangerous. Do you remember a family got killed in a room they were staying? The case is still ongoing. Mexico could be dangerous and also beautiful with culture.

Oh by, the way, this is the Eight film of the Truth and Dare, and this one is the best horror flick!
