On What Education Should Do

When I refer to education, what I’m talking about is more than just what schools do. That is just one part of it. I’m expanding education to include how a culture, a society, or a country educates the newer generations on the culture itself. Schools, as we know them now, teach reading, writing, arithmetic, history and science. In universities we learn logic, philosophy, etc. How a society educates its young not only defines its identity but also the way it defines itself for the future. If a society recognizes the importance of education to its existence, then it will make sure to place education high on its list of priorities. Unfortunately, that has not been the case in the United States. Other priorities have been distractions, and this has robbed several generations, of an education that should be worthy of free society, and a country like ours.I have always been more of a pro-process education vs. content education thinker, and have felt that the first and foremost goal of schooling should be focusing everything on teaching the child the skills to teach himself. It is not at the expense of the basic skills of reading, writing and arithmetic. It’s simply filtering everything through that goal.The learning centers we have are the parents (family), the schools, religion, and later the external world (without supervision). The parents give us our first glimpse of the world and our first impressions of it. The schools begin the socialization process along side the religion which presumably deals with spiritual and ethical values. Then we are grown up, and expected to go out into the “external world” and not only survive, but be contributing members as well. This is where it’s determined whether a society has been successful or not in teaching its younger generations.What parents can do is initially set the stage and create the best possible foundation for the child to enter the society via the school system. They can first instill that all-important perception that the world is a trust-able place (and also identify the parameters of that trust). They can also encourage curiosity, imagination, and the ability to observe what is going on around them, assess risk all of which will enable the child to make better choices.All these things are positive things but the one that is most important is instilling in children the gradual ability to be independent of their parents. The parents should want their children to grow to be independent, so they can feel comfortable that their children will survive and do well when they are no longer around.Schools can do other things too. They introduce the child to his first social group situation. But they can also include skills like anger management and further the development of risk assessment as part of the child’s growing cognitive abilities. They have the potential for greater cultural education, skills such as logic and ethics in addition to the basic reading, writing, arithmetic skills, at a much earlier age than is now considered possible through schooling.Religion or Spiritual institutions, can also teach morality, ethics and things related to the spirit.One subset to all this is Sex Education. What happens in real life is that the parents are split about wanting the schools to teach it, at least within certain parameters. Religion doesn’t really teach anything about sex except to abstain until marriage. When the schools attempt to teach it, the parents get more ambivalent about what the parameters should be, while religion insists that the schools should only be involved in teaching abstinence. So my conclusion is that the parents should be the ones who have the ultimate responsibility, and should put aside their embarrassment and discuss it with their children, or else they will learn it from the external world without any supervision.The US government should put education high on the priority list, because if they don’t, future generations will not be able to compete with those that have been educated in other countries and are more equipped to compete in the world market. My approach is simple: focus more on education, because the future survival of our culture depends on it.

Nucleic Acid Testing Market Trend, Outlook 2025

This testing (NAT) or nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) is one of the advanced diagnostic test increasingly gaining traction over conventional culture methods, owing to high efficiency and accuracy. Furthermore, This testing has potential application in various life threating diseases including cancer, infectious disease, genetic and mitochondrial disorders, and also in development of personalized and precision medicine. NAT is an efficient diagnostic method, which significantly reduces the procedural time and consumption of reagents. Moreover, this testing is increasingly being used for screening blood donation samples to reduce the risk of transfusion transmitted infections (TTIs), thus aiding in growth of the nucleic acid testing market.Nucleic Acid Testing Market – DriverThese tests are extensively used for screening and diagnosis of various infectious diseases. Moreover, growing prevalence of infectious diseases and management of epidemics of new diseases has led to increasing demand for advanced diagnostic tests such as nucleic acid testing. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2015, around 32,000 estimated deaths from tuberculosis and around 3, 23,000 new cases of TB were registered in the European region. Furthermore, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 5,251 deaths due to influenza infection were registered in 2015, in the U.S. According to the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey: 2015 data findings, 16.8 million visits to physician offices for infectious and parasitic diseases were registered in the U.S. Nucleic acid testing (NAT) enables to examine various changes in gene sequence and copy number, and provides information regarding disease recurrence and possible condition of patient to likely respond to a particular treatment. Moreover, NAT can identify, which patient have undergone inherited mutations, which eventually helps to identify whether the patient is at increased risk of developing cancer or not. Increasing incidence of cancer in various geographical areas is a major driving factor for growing adoption of nucleic acid testing. For instance, according to the Cancer Atlas: 2017, there were an estimated 14.1 million new cancer cases in 2012. Moreover, India, China, and other East and Central Asian countries accounted for nearly half of world’s new cancer cases and deaths, in 2017. Furthermore, according to the same source, by 2025, there will be an estimated 19.3 million new cancer cases and 11.4 million cancer deaths, in less developed regions.Moreover, research funding by various government and private organizations for cancer treatment and increasing adoption of molecular and nucleic acid testing in cancer research programs, to detect molecular genetic changes in single or multiple sequence of DNA or mutations is expected to aid in growth of the nucleic acid testing market, in the near future. In 2016, National Cancer Institute (NCI) invested US$ 3.9 billion for cancer research activities, which accounts for 70.8% of overall NCI 2016 budget. Among which NCI invested around US$ 533 million on cancer detection and diagnostic research activities. Moreover, in 2016, NCI allocated 40.4% of its funds for Research Project Grants (RPGs). Furthermore, in 2017, NCI budget increased by US$ 454 million (8.7%) from previous year (2016) for research activities.Request for Customization @ https://www.coherentmarketinsights.com/ongoing-insight/toc/1644Market – RestraintThe inability or difficulty of nucleic acid testing in obtaining quantitative results from a large pool of clinical sample, difficulty of using NAT test for susceptibility testing, and higher cost of nucleic acid testing devices is expected to hamper growth of the nucleic acid testing market. According to the data published in Asian Journal of Transfusion Science, in February 2014, NAT is highly sensitive and advanced technique, however, it is associated with high cost and requires dedicated infrastructure facility, equipment, consumables, and technical expertise.Market – Regional AnalysisGeographically, global nucleic acid testing market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East, Asia Pacific, and Africa. North America holds dominant position in nucleic acid testing market, followed by Europe. This is owing to increasing research and development studies by various government and pharmaceutical organizations in infectious disease and cancer diagnosis in North America. For instance, in January 2018, University of Glasgow-led project received US$ 1.85 million funding, which is a part of Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). This project will develop new tests for parasitic diseases and rapid testing in remote locations to help enable rapid diagnosis, and rapid treatment of infectious disease. Furthermore, high prevalence and awareness of cancer among people, in turn opting for early detection of cancer, is expected to aid in growth of the nucleic acid testing market in this region. For instance, according to American Cancer Society, data findings, North America registered higher incidence of cancer in children compared to any other region, in 2012. Moreover, North America accounted for 13.1% of total estimated cases of cancer, in 2012, globally, according to the same source.Asia Pacific is expected to witness fastest growth in the nucleic acid testing market over the forecast period. This is due to growing demand for efficient and quick diagnostic testing and increasing focus of major market players to expand their geographical reach in this region. For instance, in March 2013, Qiagen N.V. launched its careHPV test in China. careHPV is molecular diagnostic test designed to screen for high risk human papillomavirus (HPV) for low-resource settings such as areas lacking electricity, water or laboratories. Qiagen also gained the approval from China’s State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) for careHPV in 2012.Market – Competitive AnalysisKey market players in nucleic acid testing market are Abbott Laboratories, Beckman Coulter, Inc., Becton, Dickinson and Company, BioMérieux SA, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., F.
