How Your Heart Works

Ever­yone knows that the heart is a vital organ. We cannot live without our heart. However, when you get right down to it, the heart is just a pump. A complex and important one, yes, but still just a pump. As with all other pumps it can become clogged, break down and need repair. This is why it is critical that we know how the heart works. With a little knowledge about your heart and what is good or bad for it, you can significantly reduce your risk for heart disease.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Almost 2,000 Americans die of heart disease each day. That is one death every 44 seconds. The good news is that the death rate from heart disease has been steadily decreasing. Unfortunately, heart disease still causes sudden death and many people die before even reaching the hospital.
The heart holds a special place in our collective psyche as well. Of course the heart is synonymous with love. It has many other associations, too. Here are just a few examples:
  • have a heart - be merciful

  • change of heart - change your mind

  • to know something by heart - memorize something

  • broken heart - to lose love

  • heartfelt - deeply felt

  • have your heart in the right place - to be kind

  • cry your heart out - to grieve

  • heavy heart - sadness

  • have your heart set on - to want something badly

    GURU SEBAGAI SATU PROFESION

    Sesungguhnya para pendidik hari ini telah memainkan peranan penting di dalam merealisasikan aspirasi negara dalam mewujudkan perpaduan kaum.Pendidik pada hari ini telah membuktikan bahawa mereka telah mengimbangkan kewujudan integrasi nasional yang menjamin keamanan dan kesejahteraan negara. Guru adalah merupakan ejen kepada keberkesanan pendidikan. Kejayaan dan keberkesanan para guru terhadap tanggungjawab, kelengkapan, keilmuan dan keluhuran peribadi. Mereka berfungsi bukan sahaja untuk memberi kesedaran pada diri sendiri malah juga masyarakat serta  tentang hubungan, komitmen. Perpaduan kaum dapat dicapai sekiranya guru menerapkan nilai-nilai murni seperti saling menghormati antara satu sama lain tidak mengira bangsa dan agama.




    Sejarah tidak pernah menipu manusia dan sejarah telah membuktikan betapa golongan pendidik memainkan peranan yang penting dalam menentukan jatuh bangunnya sesebuah bangsa dan negara.Masyarakat ketika itu menjadikan guru sebagai idola dan pakar rujuk dalam segala hal. Kalau dulu guru terpaksa berhadapan dengan pihak penjajah secara terang-terangan, kini, jajahannya diterjemahkan dalam bentuk yang lain pula iaitu lebih mencabar lagi kerana ia melibatkan jajahan pemikiran, budaya dan jati diri yang perlu dihadapi secara professional dan kreatif.
