Passing the 2014 GED test can be quite challenging and somewhat intimidating for some. Having to use computerized programming will prove to be a great challenge for adults with computer phobia and daunting. However, the preparation time prior to taking the test can prove to be invaluable. If you are one of those individuals that is intimidated by the computer you can alleviate your fears by just getting in front of the computer clicking onto the internet and scrolling the front page of Yahoo, etc. Click on any item of interest you see on the page continuing to excel in your ability to scroll using the arrow on the right side of the page either in a upward or downward scroll. Advance from this by going into the email portal and send a simple message to a friend. The more you play with and familiarize yourself  with doing simple things on the computer the less fear you will have. Taking the 2014 RLA GED test will be all about your learning to navigate and manipulate the program. If you do not possess a computer your local library can accommodate you. So do the homework and practice getting familiar with the computer prior to testing. You will learn to relax and be better prepared for your test.

Ebola! No Vaccine, No Cure....

Ebola - No vaccine, no cure!

How concerned should we be? Extremely concerned because so little is truly known regarding this deadly disease. This video will explain how Ebola is transmitted, where it came from, how to protect yourself from contracting it. I remember when the scare of getting Aids initially started here in the USA. We heard so many theories of how it originated and to this day there is not a definite answer for such. However, we learned that it could be transmitted through homosexuality relationships which was alarming enough. Later the fear increased when patients needing blood transfusions contracted Aids. How devastating was this knowing the innocent people were being diagnosed with Aids through the transfusion of blood products.  Going back to an earlier time in my childhood the great scare was the dreaded Polio which rendered children paralyzed from the waist down. It appears that every so generation a devastating disease will manifest gripping people with terrorizing fear. The ultimate answer here is to always become as educated about any new disease in order to alleviate having anxieties that could lead to total calamity.
