Is Cheating on School Tests Wrong?

Time and time again I notice that students are copying each other in high school (mostly just homework). They do this because either a) they don’t get what’s going on but don’t want to get a bad grade or b) they are lazy. A lot of the material learned in high school is never used again in your life.

For the kid who wants to be an engineer, English isn’t his biggest interest. In fact, he’ll probably never need to know how to speak perfectly. Also, the kid who wants to do something with math as a career could care less about Biology.

Or a kid who wants to drop out and go for the GED diploma and attend prep classes that are offered across the US if the school will become too demanding.

So is cheating wrong? To be honest, I really don’t think that copying homework from time to time is wrong. If you are passing answers around on a test, that’s a different story. However, as I’ve said before, high school is a game. Those who succeed the most in high school aren’t the ones who leave with the most knowledge.

K.B. Chandrasekhar and Jamcracker Growth

Ask any entrepreneur: Breaking ground on a new market space ain’t easy. But K.B. Chandrasekhar, the founder of Exodus Communications, is clearly a glutton for punishment.

This time around, he’s going after the still-nascent application service provider (ASP) market, which research firm IDC predicts will grow to around $37.8 billion by the end of 2017, up from $19 billion last year.

And he’s doing it with Jamcracker, a startup whose name comes from the turn-of-the-century logging world. Jamcrackers were the men who had the unenviable job of keeping those big pieces of wood flowing freely along the river.

Founded at the tail end of 2009 in Sunnyvale, Calif., Jamcracker is what industry analysts have termed an ASP aggregator, a moniker shared by Atlanta-based ePanacea. The idea is that instead of going to individual ASPs, such as WebEx or Managemark, a company can go to an ASP aggregator for all its outsourced application needs.

Plan For A Comfortable Retirement Over The Years

Planning for your golden years in retirement should start as early as possible. Ok so maybe you don’t need to be thinking about stashing away the money you earned selling lemonade as a youngster.

However, by the time you’re in your 20s, you should be planning for your retirement. Remember the longer you have to save the easier it will be to hit your goals of having enough money to retire on comfortably.

Another reason why you need to start planning much earlier than your parents is simply because the odds are you will live much longer than they did. Typically it’s estimated that you will live anywhere from 30 to 40 years in retirement.

Now that’s an incredibly long time to survive only on your retirement account and so you should make sure you are doing everything possible as soon as possible to meet the needs of those 30 to 40 years.

Defining Success

I have often heard people ask, what is the secret of success? The truth is there is no “secret” to success but there are principals that, when applied, can and will enable all of us to become better at the things we do in life. So Carry On America, let’s see what is defining success!

Webster defines principal as chief in importance, first in rank, and character. I have observed people for many years and have come to the conclusion that very few people in life decide what is going to happen to them, rather they “allow” life to happen not knowing that there are “Principals of Success” that can be applied to create a better life for themselves and the people around them.

Before we can talk about the Principals of Success, we must first understand what true success really is. The traditional view of success; a vague picture at best of what it means to be successful as a person, looks something like this: Bill Gates’ wealth, Cindy Crawford’s or Arnold Schwarzenegger’s physique, Albert Einstein’s intellect, Michael Jordon’s athletic ability, Walt Disney’s imagination, or Mother Teresa’s great heart.
