Peace Between the Pakistani Government and Pakistani Taliban - ... The prime minister’s campaign promise was to make progress with the TTP. Despite this, little progress has been made since February or since the policy of peace talks was implemented in November.

Sharif believes that the talks are the “best option” for the Pakistani government. He hopes that he can “bring peace without further bloodshed” (BBC).

Proposal on Means of Improving Studying Conditions for Students: I Propose the Study Table - Studying has been extraordinary for me for many years now. I define studying by sitting on the bed (Indian sit) and slouching my back against the wall with the notes positioned near my crossed legs.

I would wake up after two hours of rest since I’m unconscious of the time; only to think that I wasted a lot of time. Therefore, I wasn’t able to finish studying and get things done.

Case Study Proposal: Teaching Under The Abu Dhabi Educational Council (ADEC) - “ All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth” (Aristotle) Albert Einstein once said “Information alone is not knowledge” and therefore I believe turning students into data storage devices and asking them to restore the information back on an assessment paper is not education.
