The things I liked most about this program was the versatility of all
the teachers. They all know the program and can help you from
cabinetmaking to the carpentry.
I diliked teh aspect of a different leave time every day...though I don't
know hwo to accurately depict what I liked about this class without
having taken another equivalent class.
I liked the fact that the work was mostly hands on instead of sitting in
class ALL the time. The teachers were really great and knew a lot of
information about the program. i would definatly recommend the
program to anyone who likes to build.
The teachers are always there for extra help when needed. No
student gets left behind due to not understanding material.
I really enjoyed the equal time between classroom lecture and hands
on learning at jobsites and in the shop. Making the furniture was
awesome. I learned a lot from each teaching methods of the
different instructors.
The things I enjoyed most about the Wood Tech program would be
the hands on learning experiece and opportunities giving to students
to enhance their abillitis and learn from their mistakes.
:)
I like how we have alot of lab time and not alot of classroom time.
The instructors are also very fun and do a good job teaching us.
building house and learning how to build a cabinet...
all of the hands on work
Well I really enjoyed the personalities of all the instructors. They are
not all the same, which is really nice. Also, I enjoyed being out of
doors some, and all of the hands on learning. We were taught how to
be safe with all of the power and hand equipment, which is
paramount in our field. Furthermore, I feel very comfortable entering
the field after completing this program.
All the hands on training
I liked all the lab time, it was a lot of hands on time which is what we
needed for wood tech
The instructers were very helpful and knew the subject matter.

nothing really.. what we learn is what we use. so everything is great
the way it is..
more variability in the aspect of partner choosing would be
appreciated...
The tools and equipment should be updated to match what is used in
the field.
nothing really.

more time in some area
less in the classroom time and less homework
I would have longer days durinig the week and eliminate fridays all
together. I would also make sure the students know what they are
doing before letting them work by themselves.
I think that the math in the program needs some work. I think that
estimating should run beside math that way people begin to use the
math in the real world and become familar with different asspects of
construction.
Pick which part of the program you would like to take. ( carpentry or
cabinet making)
More time working with the lathe
Nada.
More examples
Maybe more hands on, less time in class
Less locks
Less time in the class room, more practical less book work
I would put more emphasis on woodworking I think.

The persecution of the Jews at the hands of the Nazi Government
has been proved in the greatest detail before the Tribunal. It is a
record of consistent and systematic inhumanity on the greatest scale.
Ohlendorf, Chief of Amt III in the RSHA from 1939 to 1943, and who
was in command of one of the Einsatz groups in the campaign
against the Soviet Union testified as to the methods employed in the
extermination of the Jews. He said that he employed firing squads to
shoot the victims in order to lessen the sense of individual guilt on
the part of his men; and the 90,000 men, women, and children who
were murdered in one year by his particular group were mostly Jews.
When the witness Bach Zelewski was asked how Ohlendorf could
admit the murder of 90,000 people, he replied:

"I am of the opinion that when, for years, for decades, the doctrine is
preached that the Slav race is an inferior race, and Jews not even
human, then such an outcome is inevitable."
But the Defendant Frank spoke the final words of this chapter of Nazi
history when he testified in this Court:

"We have fought against Jewry: we have fought against it for years:
and we have allowed ourselves to make utterances and my own diary
has become a witness against me in this connection utterances
which are terrible .. A thousand years will pass and this guilt of
Germany will still not be erased."
The anti-Jewish policy was formulated in Point 4 of the Party
Program which declared "Only a member of the race can be a
citizen. A member of the race can only be one who is of German
blood, without consideration

Mathematics is the queen of science and the language of nature. Its
importance should be clear to any reasonable person. It is easy
however to diminish the value of certain areas of research because
they’re currently thought as having little practical use. Evolutionary
needs brought our mind to prefer knowledge that can be employed
for the solution of specific problems in the real world, rather than
deeply abstract ones. It is an understandable and even excusable
fallacy that there are useful fields of math and useless ones, based
on the perception of their applied or theoretical nature. But it’s still a
misconception. Each theorem and discovery is a little piece of a
larger puzzle that we conveniently categorize into aptly labeled macroareas. Discoveries and mathematical ideas that are perceived as
“useful” today because they’re applicable to engineering, for
example, were at a certain point in time considered absolutely
abstract and useless, or at least derived or intrinsically connected to
some that were. Mathematics matters; all of it.
On the net I found an incredible lecture by the brilliant mathematician
Timothy Gowers, entitled “The Importance of Mathematics”. In this
keynote, Prof. Gowers makes a very strong case in favor of the value
of math, of financing its relatively cheap research and its deep
implications on human progress. You can watch the 8 parts that
compose the whole video,

Commandments, at the Amsterdam Esnoga synagogue, produced
on parchment in 1768 by Jekuthiel Sofer, a prolific Jewish eighteenth
century scribe in Amsterdam. It has Hebrew language writing in two
columns separated between, and surrounded by, ornate flowery
patterns.|This 1768 parchment (612×502 mm) by Jekuthiel Sofer
emulated the 1675 Ten Commandments at the Amsterdam Esnoga
synagogue. [1]
The Ten Commandments, also known as the Decalogue (Greek:
δεκάλογος),
are a set of biblical principles relating to ethics and worship, which
play a fundamental role in Judaism and most forms of Christianity.
These ten commands serve to reveal, in Judeo-Christian
understanding, the will of God for religious and moral obligations
between humanity and God, as well as between humanity and the
rest of creation.[2] They include instructions to worship only God and
to keep Sabbath, and prohibitions against idolatry, blasphemy,
murder, theft, and adultery. Different groups follow slightly different
traditions for interpreting and numbering them.

Generate a positive work ethic

I am pleased to speak to a group that has such a distinguished
record of identifying crucial issues related to the federal budget and
working toward bipartisan solutions to our nation's fiscal problems.
Today I will briefly discuss the fiscal challenges the nation faces and
the importance of meeting those challenges for our collective
economic future. I will then conclude with some thoughts on the way
forward.

Work is fun!
that is not something developed by shop work and book work, nor is
it developed by 3 semesters of a class with such little disciplinary
actions or accusitional guidelines.

Yes i have excellant people skills.
Of the many actions taken by companies in the past few years to
bulk up the bottom line and fight the recession, cutting internal and
external customer service could cause the most damage. That’s
according to a new ASQ (American Society for Quality) and Metrus
Group national survey on how a number of recession-survival tactics
impacted employees. The respondents rated the seriousness the
various actions had on the three core "people equity" factors of
employee alignment, engagement and capabilities to meet customer
expectations. Those companies that kept the focus on employees
outperformed those that did not.
The full survey findings and accompanying article "Power to the
People" can be found in the April issue of ASQ’s flagship publication,
Quality Progress (QP) (www.qualityprogress.com).
"The major finding that cutting customer service has the greatest
adverse affect on people equity comes as a surprise," said William A.
Schiemann, Ph.D., coauthor of the study and CEO of Metrus Group.
"It’s a significant finding, given the empirical evidence from this and
other studies that alignment, engagement and capabilities link
directly to bottom-line performance. To move beyond the recession,
senior executives must rethink their recession-fighting tactics,
especially those that impact internal and external customer service."
