How Big Are The 2014 GED Test Changes Really?

ged-1In this post I talk about the changes in the GED that became effective in 2014.

Most significant changes: Computer-based, Affordability, Non-transferable credits, Difficulty.

In most states, the General Education Development (GED) examination was changed in 2014 and learners who have not completed the full examination by the end of this year, will see their scores not transferable any more.

Roughly once every 10 years, the GED exam is updated because it is a high school equivalency test. That implies that the GED test-takers must meet up with the identical educative specifications as high school graduates would. Therefore it is a natural fact that the GED examination is changing according to high school curricula. Check also information about free online GED practice tests.

Words Of Wisdom – Or Not?

KestrelC256x256To put this post into context so you don’t think I’m slightly strange, I’ve been researching racist skinheads for one of my university projects. Before I started I didn’t realize just how many websites there are out there promoting racial hatred in such extreme ways.

Tonight, however, I stumbled on the website of one particularly extreme group and they shall remain nameless and unlinked because I don’t believe they deserve that promotion. Their website has a handbook that teaches them how to oppress “ZOGS” – in short term, Jews.

They also target homosexuals, black people, foreigners – anyone that, to them, isn’t white or British. They also feature shrines to Hitler and constantly state that his words are what everybody should live by – yes, really. I read their “handbook” and just had to share their tips just because they’re so bloody ridiculous. Please note, these are not my views.

Aurora is a brilliant, natural display of colored lights that are created when electrically charged particles collide in the ionosphere, directed by the Earth’s magnetic field. This effect is called Aurora Borealis in the northern latitudes and as Aurora Australis in southern latitudes. These lights were named after the Roman goddess of dawn, Aurora.

Why Paying it Forward Is So Important

One Sunday, a few weeks ago, I had nothing to do. No plans, no one to see, and no obligations for the first time in months.payitforward

I didn’t know what to do with myself so I cooked a big greasy breakfast, watched a little television, and putzed around the apartment until I couldn’t take it anymore. I needed to get out. So

I decided to get my car washed and get my eyebrows done. At least that way I could feel like I did something productive.

I have to resort to threading for the removal of my facial hair and it’s so painful for me, tearing out each hair one by one. I prefer the quick and easy method of waxing, but my skin is just way too sensitive and I get horrible break outs. Even threading has it’s drawbacks because my skin will turn a deep shade of red around the areas that were treated that will last for hours.

How To Deal With Negative People

I used to deal with negative people on a daily basis and it was physically and mentally exhausting.

When-cut-the-negative-people-out-of-your-life-256x256My experience was very similar to the writer of this article, but instead of one person, I found myself surrounded by negativity from multiple people. My solution? I removed myself from the situation as quickly as I could.

I wish I had this article back then because it could have been very useful in helping me cope with the daily mess that I was subjected to, but hey, it’s done. I’ve learned A LOT and moved on.

I don’t even want to write about my experience, that’s how much I want to put it behind me.
