04 Aug 18

Carmelo Anthony has cleared waivers and intends to sign one-year deal with Houston Rockets. The news came after reports from Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Anthony was traded on July 19 by the Oklahoma City Thunder after being waived by Atlanta Hawks. He has now entered the free-agent player pool along with James Harden, Chris Paul and Rockets.

As per various reports, the veteran forward is all set to sign the deal worth a total of $2.4 million. His season as Oklahoma averaged out to 16.2 points and had career lows during his stay at the team. In fact, Thunder were out of the game after first round of playoffs by Utah due to low average and field goal percentage. The 34-year old is a 10-time all-star who has been in the headlines throughout his career. He ranks at 19th in the history of NBA with 25,417 points. But last season was a bust as he wasn't his isolation specialist self he has always been. His time at the game was seen dwindling this entire season. Anthony chose to accept his $28 million dollars earlier this summer for which he was due next season. Grant was re-signed by the Thunder but then the reports that came out suggested that Anthony and Thunder will be parting their ways.

Experiential Learning Is the Way to Progress for Indian Education

29 Jul 18

Education has been involving drastically. One thing that has hugely changes is the way in how knowledge is delivered. We have now understood that hour-long lectures and detailed textbooks is no longer the perfect way to share information. We are in the midst of change. Students are now inspired to gain experience in real world. This will help in bridging the gap between theory and practical learning.


Merits of Experiential Learning:


There are many advantages to experiential learning such as helping the students with critical thinking, problem solving and decision making skills. This kind of learning will help students to learn in a safe environment while trying and experimenting on new things. They will be able to develop emotional connect with the subject by learning from real examples.


Lapse in Policy Making


Some educational institutions do promote experiential learning but there is still an application vacuum. Technology has helped in the creation of simulated experiences but they still can't replace the detail of the real life. By going out, they would be able to understand their actions and take responsibility for them. So, they would be able to learn on their own. This way of self-evaluation will bring more maturity than marks or any other certifications.


Kids should be exposed to this type of learning from an early age. Once they get an idea, they will get inspired and have a sense of direction. This education for the future generation is highly crucial for the issues that grapple Indian economy.
