Speaking Exchange Between The Young And The Old

I think this is a wonderful Idea. No 1 reason, that it helps students from other countries learn to speak english and establish a great friendship and No 2, it allows the retired to keep up their computer skill and communicate with the young.
Obviously from this video, they develop quite the relationship with each other. I believe this is something that should be encouraged between countries as there are a lot of retired people that have time on their hands, where teachers and lecturers do not.
Another good reason is that these adults and children get a better understanding of each others cultures.

This is a must watch

A Journey Through Aging For The Young

children, Old, Museum

I was reading this article today and first thought what a good idea. Then I thought again, as it also puts into the minds of the young that this is how you are going to be in your old age. Maybe not for them, maybe they will be fitter and healthier than this older generation. On the other hand I guess this is an exercise in respect for the older generations physical inabilities at this present day and age being 2013.

Anyway to get to the story, at the Israel Children’s Museum near Tel Aviv, they have what they call “Dialogue With Time” and features guides age 70 and older who explain the limitations and joys of aging (so it is not just about limitations).
In one room visitors confront the challenges of performing daily tasks, such as unlocking a door with unsteady hands, going up and down stairs with difficulty. Basically it creates an intergenerational dialog that breaks all stereotypes and clichés on aging, through experience and games. They also have another area where the young person is photographed and then their picture altered by computer to show what they will look like at 80.
I think it is a great educational idea for the young to realize that the old are mentally still energetic and have a lot of knowledge that could be rather helpful to them and have respect for their physical limitations. It is for the ages of 12 and over.

Poem Friday – 09/21/2012 – It’s Your Future They Are Talking About!

It’s Your Future They Are Talking About!
Author: Lesley Voth

We are right now in the silly season,
Listen, observe, and vote for the right reason.

I am aiming this poem at the young, who can vote,
I am not trying to sway one way or promote.

Think outside of the box; make choices from the head,
Be sure; be comfortable, for the next 4 years, to lie in that bed.

Politicians are traveling all over the place,
Expounding their theories trying to win the Presidential race.

Would you have a lawyer, government employee, or celebrity run your life?
Or would you have a businessman, guide, your children, yourself, and your wife?

Listen to those who live the economy, love America, and add no baloney,
Listen to Varney, Fox News, in the morning, enjoy, he and his guests are no phony.

But it’s your choice as to whom you believe, and where you get your information,
Get over it; ignore the useless slights and digs by each politician’s accusation.

It appears to be normal, but not intelligent, not productive,
It’s media hype, it’s vindictive, it’s nasty, and destructive.

What are the freedoms that they offer you?
Will you be so regulated and taxed, more than you ever knew?

Does he surround himself with a competent crew?
Are his promises shallow or is he of substance, do you believe him to be true?

If you don’t vote then you should never complain,
because others will make your choices, again and again.

You will surely lose the freedoms you are now enjoying,
Your countries entrepreneurial spirit they will be destroying.

You might say… you are an Australian why do you care?
Well, when I am in the America that I love, My Harley and I, your roads we share.

And, because I am old enough to remember America, its pride, and its glory,
its wealth, its strength, its confidence, what a great story.

Nothing is free in this life you will find.
It’s the choice to work, be rewarded, be passionate, play and unwind.

Go vote, be heard, be sure, and don’t doubt,
It’s your future they are talking about.

How About This Young Fellow?

I am always so amazed at the young talent around. I loved singing as a kid but boy I was never blessed with those big vocal cords. In fact I cannot remember any of us having such a beautiful voice not even in the school choir.
Anyway here is another bit of Aussie talent. This young fellow actually won it.
