Purrfectly Simple Cat Mat & Toys
You've seen expensive cat beds in stores and maybe even purchased one or two for your favorite feline. But if they immediately turned their nose away from it, or you are looking for a more cost effective and less bulky bed, read on.
Louella's Goodies recently sent me a cat nip cat mat and 2 toys for my 5 loveable cats. As soon as I sat down to open package, my kids' cat Boo was immediately on my desk to see what was in bag. When I pulled out square mat and put it on floor, he was all over it (and under it too!). After playing on it for a few minutes, Taz came to see what this new thing was. He too spent several minutes rolling around and nibbling on mat.
It's now been about a week since we've had mat, and while scent has faded and they don't go quite as crazy, Boo and 2 of our kittens have claimed this mat as their new bed. They absolutely LOVE it.
American Public Schools --- Deteriorating Like They Did In Ancient RomeWritten by Joel Turtel
The citizens of early Roman Republic enjoyed an education system similar to ancient Athens. It was voluntary and parents paid tutors or schools directly. There was very little government interference, so a vibrant education free market of tutors, schools, and apprenticeships developed.
One aspect of Roman society that compromised their education system was that Roman parents wanted their children to learn knowledge that only Greek teachers could provide. However, most Greeks in Rome at time were slaves.
As a result, Greek teachers could not personally or financially benefit by their work. Often their morale was low and they were subject to harsh discipline. Unlike free teachers in ancient Athens, Greek slave-teachers in Rome had little incentive to innovate or continually improve their skills. As a result, quality of education stagnated.
Also, a majority of Roman population was slaves, both from Greece and other areas Rome had conquered. Naturally, these slaves had no rights and no control over their children’s education.
