Online Math Tutors

Seriously I think some of the math subject being taught in College don't need to be there unless the course a student was enrolled to is engineering, accountant, or anything that requires a lot of calculation and math formulas.

I barely passed my college math and I can't remember what is a Factoring polynomials . If my daughter would ask me about this she will be very disappointed because I don't know the answer and she will suffer the same disappointment I have when I was still studying.

I used to asked my brother and sister on how to solve math problems but they would revert me to my book and tell me I should understand my lesson, after all its my lesson. I would sit in the corner and sulk. Good thing there was my dad to the rescue, he would help me do it.

Students these days are lucky because there are free math help they can find online. This one is and online math tutoring service that is specifically for K-12 and college students. I wish we have this during my time.

How To Enable The Disabled

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Its sad how disable people are disregarded in third world countries like in the Philippines. They are forced to just stay at their homes or at a convenient place for them and for the "normal" people so as not to be an annoyance or disturbance to anyone.

It was disabled awareness last week and some of the members of this minority showed to the world how inaccessible it is to live in the country. They tried out the so called access points for them in public places including the people's walway/ overpass in EDSA and it was only then that they realized how inaccessible it was to use. It was too steep for a disabled person to use. In public transport although there is an allocated space for them they can't really use it because they drivers would rather not choose to take them as passengers because they need to be carried inside.

Because of this disabled are forced to use their wheelchair as a means of their transportation. But most of their wheelchairs are not that durable or not for transport use.

I hope our government will try to look at ways we can help the disabled and probably check on NMEDA so they can provide them with customized wheelchairs that they can also use for transport since reconstructing sidewalks and people's overpass will cost them more.

NMEDA will be willing to help them since they promote safety to disabled individuals. They adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Maybe the government can also purchase handicap vans and vehicles that are solely for disabled person.

This will be a better option that rebuilding all the structures that are already there. NMEDA can help us find the solution to this problem and make life more easier to the disabled. NMEDA had dealers we can contact although they are only available in the US. Their Quality Assurance Program is a recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry they are very experienced when it comes to such need.

I saw Henry Sy Sr.being carried around by his caregivers so he can go around his chains of malls nationwide I think he would be delighted to find out that he can have a customized vehicle for him. I think he will also be delighted to know he can still drive a vehicle if he finds out about this.
