Newton once said, "If I have seen further,
it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants." Mankind progresses
by building on the knowledge acquired by previous generations.
and teachers have the unenviable task of teaching to their students
in a span of about 15 years, all the knowledge that mankind has
gathered over more than 3000 years! In this process, distortions
are bound to occur; gaps in the process of learning and teaching
are bound to appear. As a result, at times, our schools, teachers
and education system appear/become ineffective and inadequate.
We launch cheapest online trading platform south africa upon this endeavour to add to the education space available.
attempt here is to walk beside the students, and relive the excitement
of discovering what we these days either assume or accept without
much argument. In earlier times, the diameter of the earth was calculated
with commonsensical observation, without the use of complex mathematics
or modern devices. What did Science believe to be cause for
an apple to fall to ground before Newton came out with his theories?
What was the need to invent the concepts of logarithms, quadratic
equations, calculus etc.?
It is a common saying that necessity is the mother of invention.
Did all knowledge that mankind now possesses, arise from physical
needs alone? Or is curiosity also a need of human beings, as critical
as their physical needs. In our view, it is man's physical needs
combined with his metaphysical needs that led to the pursuit and
accumulation of knowledge.
We plan to structure our content around the school curricula. This
will help us connect with our audience better and make the process
of learning at schools, from teachers, from parents, and through
books more rewarding. Join us as students, teachers, parents, educators,
and curious observers or as anybody who has a stake in the future
of mankind and let us attempt to live the past 3000 years.

"Fate has ordained that the men who went to the moon to explore
in peace will stay on the moon to rest in peace."
These are the opening lines of a speech
that the US President Richard Nixon would have delivered, had
the Apollo 11 mission failed, and the crew perished. The Nixon administration
was fully prepared for such a contingency. Read this and many more
