Best Places to Visit in Iceland
Welcome to Iceland, a land that comes across as being a unique and beautiful destination. It is open to visitors who like to study an unknown course, and everything about Iceland waits to be explored. Here are just a lot of places you can take on...
Dettifoss waterfalls, located 90 km from the town Húsavík , is the most powerful waterfall in Europe. You can access the waterfall either by hiking or driving down along the road leading to the falls. The access roads, however, remain closed during the winter months. That is from January to April.
Landmannalaugar or the people’s pools, is a major tourist attraction in Iceland. Known as the heart for hikers, the area is popular for hot springs. Open only during summers, it is accessible from Thorsmork Biking in this area. However, it is relatively difficult, and is recommended only for trained mountain bikers.
Reykjavik , which actually means “Steamy Bay”, got its name from the sight of steam rising from the geothermal hot springs, which attracted the Vikings when they landed at the bay. You can relax by hiking, or go fishing in the Elliea River. Don’t forget to go skinny-dipping in the famous Blue Lagoon, a geothermal(地热的) pool in the area.
Gotafoss, also known as the waterfall of the gods, is one of the most impressive attractions in Iceland. Located on the Skjalfandafljot river flowing south of road 1 or the Ring road, it is easily accessible, thus attracting tourists and divers alike. As the story goes, it was these falls that the Lawspeaker Thorgeir Ljosvetningagoti threw the statues of his Norse gods into, hence giving it the name Gotafoss.
Known to be a museum of ice sculptures, Jökulsárlón is a large glacier lake on the South Eastern border. The lake which is around 200 meters deep is home to some of the big icebergs. During the summer months, you can use boat rides that will take you face to face with the ice sculptures that melt away splendidly. In the winters, you will spot a number of seals and the great Skua at the lake.

I can tell you from experience, both private and public schools have one thing in common. Look around your school. What do you see? Beautiful buildings? Good teachers? I’ll tell you what I see: the need to have the most expensive clothing, newest phone, most expensive car, etc. Think about it. Do you find yourself wanting to one-up (胜过) your friends? Be honest. I know I have at some point in time.
In my school parking lot, for example, there are more BWM’s and Mercedes than one could possibly imagine. When I look at my 2006 Honda CRV, the butterflies in my stomach start flapping their wings wildly. Do people look at me differently because my car is old?
What about my phone? What about text messaging? Earlier this year in my statistics class my teacher asked our class how many texts each student received in the past 24 hours. My count was twelve. Twenty minutes later, people started to come up with the answers of 200 or more. I firmly believe that people were in competition with each other. Who could get the most texts? Having only twelve texts sent to me made me feel terrible. Was it bad that hardly anyone had texted me? My teacher would never have thought that his question which intended a better understanding of the course made me uncomfortable.
How about the difference between grade levels in high school? Come on. There is a distinct difference from being a senior and a freshman. At gatherings, the senior class boos(喝倒彩) every other grade, sometimes causing fights. Being a senior, I don’t want to make negative comments on people in other grade levels. High school is hard enough as it is. Freshman, sophomores and juniors don’t need four hundred students to remind them.
Trying to impress everyone is hard. Most of the stress we have as teens is living up to everyone else’s expectations. The only people we need to impress are ourselves. Be in competition with yourself and you’ll live a happier life.

A study of school design has discovered that school design can influence a child’s development by as much as 25 percent—over the course of an academic year. The 751 pupils using 34 classrooms across seven primary schools in Blackpool were studied by the University of Salford. Standardized data—such as age, gender(性别) and academic performance—were collected on each child at the start and end of the year, while each classroom was evaluated for quality on ten different environmental factors, such as direction for natural light, shape, color and temperature.
The results, published in Building and the Environment, showed that the architecture and design of classrooms has an important role to play in influencing academic performance. Six of the environmental factors—color, choice, connection, complexity, flexibility and light—were clearly correlated with grade scores.
Architect Peter Barrett, the study’s head author, said, “This is the first time a whole assessment has been made that successfully links the overall impact directly to learning rates in schools. The impact identified is in fact greater than we imagined.” According to the results, once the differences between the “worst” and “best” designed classrooms in the study were taken into account, it was found that the influence that “best” designed classrooms bring is equivalent(相等的) to the progress that a typical pupil would be expected to make over a year.
The results are particularly interesting as the government has introduced a controversial series of standardized templates(模板) for new school buildings, with the purpose of reducing the costs of hiring architects. The opinion on a range of strictly-defined design features replaces the previous Labour government’s more architecturally luxurious Building Schools for the Future program, which was canceled by education secretary Michael Gove. He has claimed that his department’s new Priority School Building Program, and its basic plans, will put an end to a situation which he believes existed only to “make architects richer”.

To say that the child learns by imitation and that the way to teach is to set a good example oversimplifies. No child imitates every action he sees. Sometimes, the example the parent wants him to follow is ignored while he takes over contrary patterns from some other example. Therefore we must turn to a more subtle theory than “Monkey see, monkey do.”
Look at it from the child’s point of view. Here he is in a new situation, lacking a ready response. He is seeking a response which will gain certain ends. If he lacks a ready response for the situation, and cannot reason out what to do, he observes a model who seems able to get the right result. The child looks for an authority or expert who can show what to do.
There is a second element at work in this situation. The child may be able to attain his immediate goal only to find that his method brings criticism from people who observe him. When shouting across the house achieves his immediate end of delivering a message, he is told emphatically that such a racket(叫嚷) is unpleasant, that he should walk into the next room and say his say quietly. Thus, the desire to solve any objective situation is overlaid with the desire to solve it properly. One of the early things the child learns is that he gets more affection and approval when his parents like his response. Then other adults reward some actions and criticize others. If one is to maintain the support of others and his own self-respect, he must adopt responses his social group approves.
In finding trial responses, the learner does not choose models at random. He imitates the person who seems a good person to be like, rather than a person whose social status he wishes to avoid. If the pupil wants to be a good violinist, he will observe and try to copy the techniques of capable players; while some other person may most influence his approach to books.
Admiration of one quality often leads us to admire a person as a whole, and he becomes an identifying figure. We use some people as models over a wide range of situations, imitating much that they do. We learn that they are dependable and rewarding models because imitating them leads to success.

16-year-old Laresce Brown has become the strongest schoolgirl in the UK. She says her success is due to a joint condition, which used to engender great pain.
Laresce has six British and World Champion power-lifting records under her belt. Yet until just two years ago, a condition called hypermobility left her in so much pain that she was unable to take part in sport. Rather than letting her illness limit her life, Laresce took inspiration from her father, and began weight-lifting. This put an end to her pain, and she became a champion in her field.
Laresce loves to dance and she was a keen Morris dancer at the age of eleven. After that, she had to face daily pain in her knees, elbows and hands. She was forced to miss several days of school each month, due to pain and the lack of sleep that caused.
However, she is now effectively cured, since taking up the sport of power-lifting 18 months ago.
Laresce’s position as Britain’s strongest power-lifter for her age is down to her spirit and determination. To ensure her success, Laresce must train for eight hours a week. “ I really enjoyed the feeling of power I got and the excitement of people encouraging me to do my best. Becoming a champion was a big surprise—I just started off for fun and I was not expecting anything. So to win six titles was amazing,” she said.
Laresce’s father said, “Being the father of such a high-achieving teen, I couldn’t be more proud. She’s truly the apple of my eye and has worked so hard to be where she is today. She’s made us all so happy, and I feel we all enjoy a bright future together thanks to her.”
