Trick-or-Treat: DWIs This Halloween

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Driving is one aspect of our lives that we ultimately practice almost every day. Whether we are behind the wheel, and on the road commuting to and form work, running one of our never ending errands, or dropping off the kids at soccer practice it feels like the majority of our lives are spent on the road. While we would like to believe that we are safe every time we are “out and about” that is simply just not the case at all. Today, many drivers are not only driving recklessly, but also driving while intoxicated.

The Facts of The Matter

Halloween is one holiday this month that will mean many people will be out on the road from now up until the actual holiday running around town trying to find the perfect costume, decorations, and picking up candy for the infamous little trick-or-treaters. However, another aspect of life that will be on the road this holiday season is that of alcohol. While Halloween is one holiday that many children partake in and enjoy, and adults do as well, which gives them the opportunity to blow of steam, dress up, and have a little fun. Usually, adults observing the holiday will either go to either a function, or a party, which usually means alcohol will be a guest as well.

However, Halloween is one holiday that drivers, and parents alike need to make sure alcohol and DWIs are far away from any road. Halloween produces many pedestrians out on sidewalks, and roads trick-or-treating, or visiting with friends and neighbors while enjoying the cool, Fall weather now upon us. In the past, we can see many cases in which adults have participated in Halloween functions, became intoxicated, and got behind the wheel of a vehicle thinking they were sober enough to operate their vehicle. Unfortunately, the consequence of these drivers getting behind the wheel while intoxicated, especially during this holiday season not only result in serious injuries, both from motor vehicle operators and pedestrians alike, but also death.

This Halloween make sure that the holiday is not a trick, and a treat for all motor vehicle operators, pedestrians, and trick-or-treaters by following the rules of the road properly, and keeping alcohol off the road.

Can You Always Trust Teachers?

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

In our lives we depend on many different people whether we believe it or not. Today, we live to believe that we are individuals, and can depend on ourselves for the majority of our wants and needs. However, that is not generally the case at all. When you look at everything at a grand scale of things we rely on individuals of all walks of life in order to help us, or our family in one way, shape, or form. One of these individuals that we heavily rely on today, and always have has been that of a teacher.

Teachers or Predators?

The majority of our teachers today within the United States are employed by our hard earned tax dollars, but can also be in private school, and higher education settings. However, the majority of our teachers can be seen in public school settings. The purpose that teachers, and educators serve is one of extreme importance, which must be achieved, and met with extreme sensitivity, determination, and nurturing in order to make sure our students, and children not only learn, but achieve. Unfortunately, students are learning much more than they, and their parents, bargained for, especially in this day and age.

The Facts of Sexual Harassment Today Within The Classroom

Sexual harassment is one aspect that is very prevalent in many schools all throughout the country today. When it actually comes down to sexual harassment many different forms can easily occur, which range from teacher’s comments towards students to actually taking it too far past social and physical limits. Besides the fact that your children, and students could be sexually harassed by their educators they can also have relationships with teachers as well. As we’ve seen in the past through national news some teachers are not only having inappropriate sexual relationships with their students, but end up dating them, and eventually could get married, or have children. Texting, and social media has also been an aid to teachers, and other sexual predators within schools, which allow them to connect to a student privately, and have their own private, social relationship with these students.

Make sure you discuss sexual harassment to your children, or young ones and make sure that not only understand it, but also how it can easily have its place within classrooms today, and what to do when they are faced with the issue.
