Bio-Hack 101

basic biological processes so they work better than they normally do in healthy people, or counteracting things that normally make healthy people weak".

The magic of Singapore Math

One very special attribute of Singapore Math as practiced at Magellan International School, is that it's methods e.g symbolic demonstration, bring to conscious awareness, mathematical processes which may have been hidden due to rote memorization.

The way in which SM is taught and learned is by teaching the student to demonstrate and show not just what the correct answer is but how they got to this conclusion, thereby making transparent a process which for many adults has made made an unconscious habit through rote memorization and repetition.

Civilization is the limitless multiplication of unnecessary necessities...................................... Mark Twain

Capitalism is " ditto".

So, capitalism is civilized...?

mmm-that is correct I guess, logically, yet "to view the current state of world affairs and adults as civilized, would be a detriment to our children and the future evolution of human kind. robert

American "Freedom" is a constraint for True freedom lovers- -"Freedom-with their exception" Metallica

"Eye Of The Beholder"

Do You See What I See?
Truth Is an Offense
You Silence for Your Confidence
Do You Hear What I Hear?
Doors Are Slamming Shut
Limit Your Imagination, Keep You Where They must
Do You Feel What I Feel?
Bittering Distress
Who Decides What You Express
Do You Take What I Take?
Endurance Is the Word
Moving Back Instead of Forward Seems to Me Absurd

Doesn't Matter What You See
Or into it What You Read
You Can Do it Your Own Way
If It's Done Just How I Say

Independence Limited
Freedom of Choice
Choice Is Made for You My Friend
Freedom of Speech
Speech Is Words That They Will Bend
Freedom with Their Exception

Do You Fear What I Fear?
Living Properly
Truths to You Are Lies to Me
Do You Choose What I Choose?
More Alternatives
Energy Derives from Both the plus and Negative
Do You Need What I Need?
Boundaries Overthrown
Look Inside to Each His Own
Do You Trust What I Trust?
Me, Myself and I
Penetrate the Smoke Screen I See Through the Selfish Lie

Doesn't Matter What You See
Or into it What You Read
You Can Do it Your Own Way
If It's Done Just How I Say

Independence Limited
Freedom of Choice
Choice Is Made for You My Friend
Freedom of Speech
Speech Is Words That They Will Bend
Freedom with Their Exception

Do You Know What I Know?
Your Money And Your Wealth
Your Silence Just to Hear Your Self
Do You Want What I Want?
Desire Not a Thing
I Hunger after Independence Lengthen Freedom's Ring

Doesn't Matter What You See
Or into it What You Read
You Can Do it Your Own Way
If It's Done Just How I Say

Independence Limited
Freedom of Choice
Choice Is Made for You My Friend
Freedom of Speech
Speech Is Words That They Will Bend
Freedom no longer frees you

Doesn't Matter What You See
Or into it What You Read
You Can Do it Your Own Way
If It's Done Just How I Say

"The less said about life's sores, the better"
Oscar Wilde

...and yet to not comment on the atrocities of the current American congress would be irresponsible, e.g An inflated defense budget NOT used to defend American school children.
Are there any congressman/woman who are not Pawns of Big Pharmacy or Military contractors?
Are there any congressman who represent a normal working man/woman?


All professional politicians should be legally eliminated and dis-allowed from holding a public office.
Working class men and women-teachers, plumbers, (def. NOT doctors or lawyers), will be asked to serve for 11 months in the New American Congress, to do their best then leave.
Normal people making decisions for everyday folk.

Americans are Sick!

Why do Americans continue to gamble with the lives of their children?

You have the money in the defense budget ($650 bil) to defend your schools.

US Defense Budget: us defense budget

So why do Americans continue to leave their precious ones in un-protected facilities?

At least Colombian schools have fences, gates and armed guards.

There is no excuse or explanation except:

Classroom differentiation weakens your child

Differentiation is destructive to your child’s development. 

“The only constant is change.”

Differentiation as taught in todays classrooms will stunt your childs ability to adapt and change to fit their future environments. It is best that every teacher instructs in their own unique style and that the child adapts to that dynamic classroom and teaching style. If the students do not learn to evolve to meet their learning environment in the class how can they be expected to grow to meet future challenges? Will they just suddenly learn to adapt after years of being coddled in the classroom?

Key elements of differentiation:

PACE: Did those deer slow down so we could catch and eat them?
"...In the traditional classroom, activities are completed within a single time frame, irrespective of the level of difficulty for some students. The result is that more advanced learners can be held back to the speed of the less able ones, and at the other end of the scale, some may simply find it impossible to keep up..."

Did those fish just jump in to our mouths so we could survive?

·      Does your work place adapt to you? No-you either get the job done or you don't e.g competence based learning.
·      What job changes to suit its employee?
·      Does your environment adapt to you or vice versa?
·      How does differentiation help teach a student to adapt and change?
·      Will your future job change it’s entire style so you can fit in better?

--- Differentiation in the classroom coddles your child and does not prepare them for the future work place.


In the differentiated classroom, rather than assessment taking place at the end of learning, students are assessed on an on-going basis so that teaching, and indeed the other methods of differentiation, can be continuously adjusted according to the learners’ needs. 
Differentiation in the classroom is all about understanding that we are dealing with a group of diverse individuals and adapting our teaching to ensure that all of them have access to learn..."

---Every child should learn to adapt to its teachers and class room in order to train for a future which is constantly re-defining itself and changing.

Children should be taught differentiation tools, which teach them how to shift their focus or perspective when “they just don’t get it”. For example, if I am a visual learner, I should be taught to shift my focus to a audio perspective as to learn to adapt to that present classroom challenge. As defined now in 2014 we may now have say, 3 different learning styles: audio, visual, and kinesthetic learners but we all are a mix of all these plus there are a billion different styles to be defined at a later date. 

Whatever known learning styles exist, children should be taught these, so as to learn to adapt to an ever-changing and competitive word, which will not coddle them.

Recently, I was advising a client/student of mine while training with a Skilz tool (link). I told her, " if you practice and learn to swing a stick/golf club in order to hit a ball very far and accurately then you can make enough money to live well in this world and buy whatever form of education you desire for self and family."

What a sad country which pays clowns e.g entertainers and sportsmen, more money than educators of the next generation. Do Americans really value their children?

Be Your Authentic self

Ben and daddy, fishing in Bogota.
It is too tiring to not be your authentic self. rkp
Mis cielos en Bogota, COL.

“If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.” Joseph Campbell
