David Spade has been a natural prankster most of his life. Even when he was in school he would always be the life of the party. He was so smart in 3rd grade he got moved up to the 4th grade for some of his classes. Grew up in Arizona; graduated from Saguaro High School in Scottsdale in May, 1982. Studied business at Arizona State University and graduated in 1986. He worked as a skateboard shop employee before he landed in showbiz.
During his first season on of Saturday Night Live he appeared only three times and in one of his appearances he made a sarcastic comment on SNL alumnus Eddie Murphy ;when Spade did a joke in which a photograph of Murphy, whose career had started to falter, was shown and Spade quipped, “Look children, a falling star–make a wish.”. When SNL had their 25th anniversary Eddie Murphy is the only cast member who made it big but he decided not to attend.
Now, years later, Spade tells “Rolling Stone” that Murphy, who has roasted his fair share of celebrities, actually phoned “SNL” to complain about the gag and has snubbed Spade repeatedly.
According to Spade, Murphy’s grudge has led mutual friend Chris Rock to ignore Spade whenever Murphy is around. “I just saw Murphy in person at the Rolling Stones concert at the Hard Rock in Vegas,” Spade says. “He and Chris Rock came in … Every time Eddie turns his head, Rock looks back at me going, ‘I can’t talk to you, Spade!’ ”
Now that I’m forty and all my kids are in school I try to remember the times when I was still a student. During those times I hated Math; it was the subject that I dreaded the most. While I was studying Geometry, Algebra, Calculus and Trigonometry I always try and I wonder will I use these when I grow old? Now that I’m older and I try to think of the benefits that I got from it, it’s not all about the numbers but that in every problem there’s always a solution. The problem may be solved by simple math but there are times when it’s more complicated than that.
I remember most of the time we would stay late in school to study Math as a group. We had a classmate that was really good; she patiently taught us every step of the solution and made sure that we understood. Similar to life when you would have friends that would be there and walk with you to find solutions that is brought about by the problems that life may bring.
So what did really Math teach me? It is patiently trying to find out solutions to the problems in life and during times when you’re at a loss and you feel that you can’t find any solution, your friends would be there to guide you and support you. So now, when my kids complain about Math, I smile and tell them that studying Math is even beyond that. Math is a way for you to practice how to patiently solve the problems of life, so when a teacher gives you a Math problem patiently work on the answer because when you face the problems of life it is definitely more complicated than that.
Nowadays, being a mother does not only entail taking care of children but it also involves providing for their material and physical needs as well. The challenging economy has forced mothers to work so that they can supply the needs of the family. Sometimes I begin to wonder, did God create mothers to perform all these responsibilities? In the past the tasks of most mothers was to take care of every member of the household; to make sure that the home was in order and that the needs of the family are met.
During these trying times mothers are not only tasked to do the responsibilities that society has dictated them to do but to help support the financial needs of the family as well. Tough as it may sound, this is reality. When visitors come to your house and see dishes are unwashed, clothes are not ironed, the house is topsy turvy the mothers are usually blamed in situations like these. In Wikipedia, mother is defined as a woman who has conceived, given birth to, or raised a child in the role of a parent. Because of the complexity and differences of a mother’s social, cultural, and religious definitions and roles, it is challenging to define a mother to suit a universally accepted definition. The male equivalent is a father. The father on the other hand is defined as a male parent of any type of offspring.The adjective “paternal” refers to father, parallel to “maternal” for mother. The verb “to father” means to procreate or to sire a child from which also derives the gerund “fathering”.
While looking at the description above I am having an impression that during these modern times fathers use Wikipedia to be able to describe what their role is in society and it states nothing major except if used as a verb means to procreate. With that said I do not blame society for placing everything on the shoulders of the mothers even the ever reliable Wikipedia is unclear to what the role of fathers are.
