A Teacher vs CEOs, Doctors, Engineers, Accountants etc

This is so true.. Many people look down on teachers, when they are one of the first few people to make a difference in your life..

Dear Friends, Associates & Loved Ones

This is a very good one ! very moving !

From A School Principal's speech at a graduation..

He said "Doctor wants his child to become a doctor......... 
Engineer wants his child to become engineer......Businessman wants his ward to become CEO.....
BUT a teacher also wants his child to become one of them..!!!!

Nobody wants to become a teacher BY CHOICE" ....Very sad but that's the truth.....!!!

The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.
One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He argued,
"What's a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?"

To stress his point he said to another guest;
"You're a teacher, Bonnie. Be honest. What do you make?"

Teacher Bonnie, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied,
"You want to know what I make?
(She paused for a second, then began...)

"Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.

I make a C+ feel like the Congressional Medal of Honor winner.

I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can't make them sit for 5 min. without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental.

You want to know what I make?

(She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table)

I make kids wonder.

I make them question.

I make them apologize and mean it.

I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

I teach them how to write and then I make them write. Keyboarding isn't everything.

I make them read, read, read.

I make them show all their work in math. They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.

I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know about English while preserving their unique cultural identity.

I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life

( Bonnie paused one last time and then continued.)

Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn't everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant. You want to know what I make?


What do you make Mr. CEO?

His jaw dropped; he went silent.

THIS IS WORTH SENDING TO EVERY TEACHER & CEO, EVERY PERSON YOU KNOW. Even all personal teachers like mother, father, brother, sister, coach and spiritual leader/teacher.

The reason why u so tired, acidic blood ~ A Rewind

 The reason why u so tired, acidic blood

Under weakly alkaline condition, cancerous cells will not be able to grow, or even to survive.


Actual case studies, very important, please read patiently and pass this on.


Even if you have read this before, you should reread this, especially the list of acidic and alkaline foodstuff , best to read several times and remember.


Please read this article in full patiently, it will be helpful to your health.


More than 30 years ago, a Mr Zhang who worked in the public sales department of a Taipei Brewery, participated in the brewery overseas study selection examination, and passed with flying colours..


Before going overseas during the physical examination at a public hospital, it was discovered that he had a tumour growth in his lung the size of a child's fist, and therefore was not able to go overseas to study.


The greatly disappointed Mr Zhang had always been suspicious that the diagnosis was wrong. So he went to another hospital for a check-up, the result confirm that previous diagnosis was not in error.


For the youthful and healthy Mr Zhang to be stricken down with such terminal illness, in his despair, he rang his old classmate who at the time was Taidong County Government, Huangsun County Mayor's secretary, Mr Wei.


Mr Wei rushed to Taipei during his rest day on a Sunday to see Mr Zhang.


Mr Zhang discussed with Mr Wei in detail his despair and pessimism, and entrusted his friend regarding his affairs after his death. Coincidentally, Mr Wei was a good friend of Dr Lu Geling, who was in charge of the Maijie Hospital, 1945-55, and specialised in the clinical research into cancer cases.

張先生向魏同學詳述相關絕望的詳情和悲觀感受,並請位同學協助其後事,恰逢魏同學與前任馬偕醫院院長1949-55年專精於癌症臨床研究的呂革令 博士係知交好友。

He immediately suggested that Mr Zhang go to see Dr Lu for treatment. At first, Mr Zhang said he preferred not to see anymore doctors, so as not to add further to his misery.


But Mr Wei told him that he had telephoned Dr Lu before to seek his advice and arranged an appointment. Mr Zhang felt obligated and went with Mr Wei to meet Dr Lu


When Dr Lu met with Mr Zhang, Dr Lu said: ' Mr Wei is a friend and introduced you and I to get to know each other. This is destiny. Thank you. Let me ask you do you know why is cancer referred to as terminal illness?'


Both Mr Zhang and Mr Wei did not know how to answer.


Dr Lu explained: 'There are only two approaches taken by humans to treat cancer to-date The first is to destroy the source of the disease. The second is to increase the capability to fight the disease.


But the strange thing is that, whether we use Cobalt 60 or other drugs to destroy the cancer cells, before the cancer cells are killed, the good cells are destroyed first.


On the other hand, no matter what nutrients or supplements we use, before the good cells have a chance to absorb them, the cancer cells have taken them up and it simply speeds up the growth of cancer.


Therefore both approaches are doomed to failure, that is why cancer is terminal.'


Dr Lu continues: 'Human beings are most clever, they have successfully landed on the moon. But why is it no one ever questioned the above two approaches for treating cancer which are nothing but self defeating dead-ends, and try to seek a third avenue?


When I was conducting clinical research in Majie Hospital, I had many opportunities to work with and being helped by many colleagues in the Hospital. I discovered that the blood tests of 100% of the cancer patients showed that the blood samples are acidic.


Those Buddhist monks and nuns who are long term vegetarians and live very close to Nature, their blood are prevalently weakly alkaline and amongst them, there has yet to discover any cancer cases.


Therefore, I boldly concluded that under weakly alkaline condition, cancer cells are not able to grow, or even to survive.


Mr Zhang, I would suggest that starting from now you reduce your intake of the acidic meaty dishes.


Take more of the alkaline food. In addition you can take green algae and soup made from water chestnuts with skin,


modify your physical condition, and try seriously to have a regular life style which is close to Nature;


If you can manage to stay alive for five years, you should have no further problem. I wish you the best of luck.'


Mr Zhang followed Dr Lu's suggestion and seriously altered his eating habits.


Every day, he ate green algae, drank chestnut soup, be optimistic and did an appropriate amount of exercise, and went back to the same public hospital for a check up. It was discovered that not only that the tumour did not increase in size, on the contrary it showed signs of shrinking, and surprised the hospital staff conducting the check-up as a miracle. Five years later, the tumour had shrunk to such a state as to almost disappear.

每天又吃綠藻、喝菱角湯,樂觀加上每天適當的運動,一年後再到同一公立醫院檢查結果,發現腫瘤不但沒有長大、反而已呈現萎縮狀態,遂令醫院檢查人 員驚為奇蹟,五年後竟完全處於萎縮、至近於消失狀態。

After almost 40 years, presently Mr Zhang's health is totally normal, and living a very pleasant life.


Following Mr Zhang, a Mr Chen Tianshou, who was previously Head of the General Administration of the Taidong Provincial Hospital, was similarly diagnosed with lung cancer.


When Mr Wei heard of this, he told Mr Chen of the experience of Mr Zhang, and Mr Chen started to follow the instructions of Dr Lu to change his physical condition. The outcome was that he was able to recover fully from the cancer, just like Mr Zhang.


At that time, Mr Lu and his family have emigrated to the United States. After the two cases, he returned to Taiwan and met up with Mr Wei.


Mr Wei told Dr Lu about the experiences of Mr Zhang and Mr Chen, and suggested that let the two of them detailed their experiences to Dr Lu in person, so that Dr Lu could publish a report on his self cure body conditioning method.


Dr Lu very humbly replied:


'I am too old, besides, I do not have any clinical records of the outcomes. I would ask that you tell your
friends and relatives, if they are agreeable, then please continue this experience and spread the words ⋯ ⋯



One should take care of oneself but should also be caring about others, 85% of cancer patients have acidic in their physical condition.


*** Blood of healthy persons is weakly alkaline in nature, with a pH of about 7.35 to 7.45

* 健康人的血液是成弱鹼性的,約是pH7.35〜7.45左右

*** Babies' blood is also weakly acidic

* 嬰兒也是屬於弱鹼性的體質

*** As adults mature their blood becomes more acidic in nature

* 成長期的成人有體質酸化的現象

According to a study of 600 cancer patients, of their bodily fluid, 85% of the patients are acidic .


Therefore, how to maintain the weakly acidic nature of our body is the first step for moving far away from diseases.


Acidic physical conditions manifest itself in:


1. Skin without lustre


2. Athlete's foot


3. Feeling tire even with very little exercise, and feeling sleep the moment one gets on to public buses


4. Easily out of breath going up and down stairs


5. Fat and with lower stomach protruding,


6. Move slowly and movement lethargic



Why does the body physical condition turn acidic? 為什麼會形成酸性體質?

1. Excessive intake of dairy acidic food


a) meat, dairy products, eggs, beef, ham, etc are acidic food


b) taking too much acidic food will cause the blood to become acidic and viscous, difficult to flow to the end of blood vessels, leading to cold feet or knee, stiff shoulders and insomnia.


c) When one is young and strong, taking suitable quantity of meat is appropriate, but older people it more suitable to have a diet which are primarily vegetables or small fish.


2. Irregularity in the pace of life will cause the body physical condition to become acidic


a) Irregular pace in life will lead to mental and physical stress


b) According to statistics, people who sleep late are more likely to have cancer than normal persons, by as much as 5 times.


c) Human beings originally lead a life with regular tempo in this world, it is not possible to store up sleep or food and not possible to change the order of living by mixing up days and nights.


d) Human organs are controlled by the autonomic nerves, and during day time it is mainly sympathetic nerves activities, and at night it is mainly the parasympathetic nerves which are functioning, If this order is disturbed and reversed, then diseases will result.


3. Emotion over tensed


a) Civilised society brings stresses

b) Job related or mental stresses


c) A person suffers mental stress, when the stress is removed and the person relaxes, sometimes this may lead to death, referred to as the syndrome of imperfect adrenal cortex function.


4. Physical Stress


a) Before any operation it would be necessary to check to see if the renal cortex does function normally. If the adrenal cortex is lacking, or if the stress imposed by the operation exceeded the ability of adrenal cortex to cope, it could lead to death or other undesirable impacts.


b) If it noted that patient's face is puffy, it would be necessary to inquire in detail the patient's medical history and medication status, for patients taking adrenal cortical hormone, extra care should be exercise when administering acupuncture.


c) Stress due to physical labour or exercise in excess, whole night card games, driving etc should be avoided as much as possible



Appendix: Acidity/alkalinity of Common food stuff


1. Strong acidic food: egg yolk, cheese, cake make with white sugar or persimmon, mullet fish roe, dried cod.


2. Mild acidic food: ham, bacon, chicken meat, squid, pork, eel, beef, bread, wheat, butter, horse meat etc


3. Weak acidic food: white rice, peanut, beer, alcohol, oil fried tofu, sea weed, clam, octopus, catfish


4. Weak alkaline food: red bean, radish, apple, cabbage, onion, tofu etc.


5. Mild alkaline food: dried radish, soya bean, carrot, tomato, banana, orange, pumpkin strawberry, egg white, dried plum, lemon, spinach, etc.


6. Strong alkaline food: grape, tea leave, grape wine, kelp sprout, kelp, etc Especially natural green algae which contain rich quantity of chlorophyll are very good alkaline health food, but tea should not be drunk in excess, and best to drink in the morning.

6.. 強鹼性食品:葡萄、茶葉、葡萄酒、海帶芽、海帶等。尤其是天然綠藻富含葉綠素,是不錯的鹼性健康食品,而茶類不宜過量,最佳飲用時間為早上。

Education system needs a complete overhaul

 I  WELCOME the Education Minister’s initiative to critically review our English teaching in schools. Many times the solutions proposed to improve our English mastery have been short-term simplistic plugging with questionable outcomes i.e. changing the medium of instruction.

If this were the solution, why do our young generation of today also have problem conversing and writing in a standard Malay language? This is despite Malay being the medium of instruction.

I believe that our curriculum now is too rigid and is only exam focused, and lacks opportunities for the students to develop their language skills intellectually and creatively.

Learning may be too didactic and with little room provided for interactive class discussion, as teachers are often pressed to finish their syllabus for exams.

If students are only expected to answer yes/no or regurgitate the exact words from the text book, how can we expect them to construct an intelligent essay?

The rest of the subjects also have the same problems, as we can see that students entering university lack understanding in many basic concepts of arithmetic, biology, chemistry, etc.

Our whole education system is very sick and needs long-term rehabilitation. The list of illnesses is getting longer. Language mastery is just one tick box.

How about extra private tuition, which is no longer a support system but a necessity since kindergarten? How about illiteracy, which still plagues some 17-year-olds in Malaysia? How about the neck breaking weight of their school bag?

It is time to seriously review our education system holistically.

Dr ASRUL A. SHAFIE, George Town.
