Stevie Wonder - Faith ft. Ariana Grande



Critics have compared Grande's wide vocal range to that of Mariah Carey. Her accolades include one Grammy Award, one BRIT Award, three American Music Awards, three MTV Europe Music Awards and two MTV Video Music Awards. She has supported a range of charities and has a large following on social media, becoming the most followed woman on Instagram in February 2019. In 2016, Time named Grande as one of the 100 most influential people in the world on their annual list, and in 2018, Billboard named her Woman of the Year.
Grande has cited Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey as her major vocal influences, saying: "I love Mariah Carey. She is literally my favorite human being on the planet. And of course Whitney [Houston] as well. As far as vocal influences go, Whitney and Mariah pretty much cover it." She describes Gloria Estefan as the person who inspired her to pursue a career in the music industry after Estefan complimented a performance she saw Grande give on a cruise ship when she was eight years old.
 She has also cited FergieDestiny's ChildBeyoncé, India.Arie and Brandy as influences or inspirations. She has praised Imogen Heap's "intricate" song structure and cited Judy Garland as being a childhood influence, admiring Garland's ability to tell "a story when she sings."

Rag'n'Bone Man - Skin (Live from the BRITs 2018) ft. Jorja Smith



When I heard that sound
When the walls came down
I was thinking about you
About you
When my skin grows old
When my breath runs cold
I'll be thinking about you
About you

Seconds from my heart
A bullet from the dark
Helpless, I surrender
Shackled by your love
Holding me like this
With poison on your lips
Only when it's over
The silence hits so hard

'Cause it was almost love, it was almost love
It was almost love, it was almost love

When I heard that sound
When the walls came down
I was thinking about you
About you
When my skin grows old
When my breath runs cold
I'll be thinking about you
About you

When I run out of air to breathe
It's your ghost I see
I'll be thinking about you, about you
It was almost love, it was almost...

We bleed ourselves in vain
How tragic is this game?
Turn around, I'm holding on to someone
But the love is gone
Carrying the load, with wings that feel like stone
Knowing that we nearly fell so far now
It's hard to tell

Yeah we came so close, it was almost love
It was almost love, it was almost love

When I heard that sound
When the walls came down
I was thinking about you
About you
When my skin grows old
When my breath runs cold
I'll be thinking about you
About you

When I run out of air to breathe
It's your ghost I see
I'll be thinking about you, about you

I reached out for your hand
When the walls were caving in
But I see you on the other side
We can try all over again

When I heard that sound
When the walls came down
I was thinking about you
About you
When my skin grows old
When my breath runs cold
I'll be thinking about you
About you

When I run out of air to breathe
It's your ghost I see
I'll be thinking about you, about you

'Cause it was almost love, it was almost love
It was almost love, it was almost love

Socrates As A LifeLong Learner In A Digital Age

Socrates As A LifeLong Learner In A Digital Age:

“The more I learn, the more I learn how little I know.” Socrates

Lifelong learners seek to examine the claims and theories within their disciplines’ body of knowledge before accepting them as worthy of belief.

Socrates/Quotes
  • An unexamined life is not worth living.
  • True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing.
  • I know that I am intelligent because I know that I know nothing.
  • When the debate is over, slander becomes the tool of the loser.
  • Beware the barrenness of a busy life.
  • Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.
  • By all means marry: if you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.
  • To find yourself, think for yourself.
  • I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.
  • There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.


    Socrates determined that while learning new information, we are challenging our current understanding. He discovered that by applying this method of probing questioning to theories of people in power, they could not rationally justify their claim to knowledge just because they held positions of authority. By questioning and examining life, Socrates established that persons could hold high position yet still be deeply confused, have self-contradictory beliefs and inadequate evidence to their rhetoric (National Council for Excellence in Critical Thinking, 2019). I view this philosophy as the beginning of empirical research.

New research and new information should not only inform our experiences but challenge our accepted frameworks for understanding, interpreting, translating and analyzing to form our own knowledge. Application of knowledge for the examined life is of utmost importance in the learning and teaching journey. As lifelong learner practitioners and scholars, it is our profound duty to apply this philosophy and probing questioning within the classrooms we study and within the classrooms where we teach.
 As an online educator and practitioner-scholar, I strive to help each student realize his or her potential as a worthy, effective, and positive member of society. While I am teaching, I am also working to stimulate the spirit of inquiry, the acquisition of knowledge and skill, and the thoughtful formulation of worthy goals. I exert every effort in this process in order to provide an online classroom climate with the freedom to learn, high yet attainable standards, and the guarantee of the opportunity for equal education for all.
