: : : Lecturers talk while other people sleep"

: : Hello Joy,
: : I helped you with the other 2.
: : I will help you with this one also if you need me to help you but here are directions to try it yourself. It is very simple:

: : First, go to: www.google.com

: : "Lecturers talk while other people sleep"

: : Thirdly, hit your "enter" key! :)

: : There is a quote out there along the lines of showing someone how to fish instead of always finding the fish for you or something like that!

: : If you still cant find it I will post it for you if you let me know.

: It goes about like this, or maybe exactly like this: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish and you feed him for the rest of his life."

Or 'Give a man a fish and it will feed him for a day, teach him to use the net and he will starve to death over his screen.'
