Lifelong Learning A Must – WHITEMAN

first_imgRelatedLifelong Learning A Must – WHITEMAN Lifelong Learning A Must – WHITEMAN EducationSeptember 28, 2012 RelatedLifelong Learning A Must – WHITEMAN RelatedLifelong Learning A Must – WHITEMANcenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Chairman of Commonwealth of Learning (COL), Ambassador the Hon. Burchell Whiteman, says that the ongoing pursuit of knowledge must be a way of life for every Jamaican. “Lifelong learning is not for the so called disadvantaged or deficient because we all have value and we all have deficiencies. Adult education, lifelong learning needs to be a way of life for all our people, those with the 17 CXC subjects (Caribbean Examination Council) and those who have finished their PH.Ds (Doctor of Philosophy),” he said. Mr. Whiteman was speaking at the adult learners’ week lecture seminar on Wednesday (Sept. 26) at the Jamaican Foundation for Lifelong Learning’s (JFLL) South Camp Road campus in Kingston under the theme: ‘Unlocking the Potential for Progress through Lifelong Learning’. According to Ambassador Whiteman, lifelong learning not only fosters personal development, but also enhances social inclusion, which he argued, is critical to national development. In underscoring his point, Mr. Whiteman made reference to a contribution from late former Prime Minister, Michael Manley, in a United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) report, which states: “the school of today and tomorrow must plant the seeds of caring, so that under classes do not become the victims of an ideology of exclusion. They must nurture the concept of an overarching humanity in which the brilliant, the average and even the disturbed, the Muslim and the Christian…all occupy an equal place in a process of permanent social inclusion.” In the meantime, Mr. Whiteman commended the JFLL for the work it has been doing over the years, which have led to thousands of Jamaicans becoming literate. “I want to encourage you to find new ways of engaging learners for their own personal education but, above all, to remember that one of the critical pillars of education is helping people to learn to live together. Together we can succeed, together we can do great things and together we can create the development and the growth and the prosperity which I think this country definitely can achieve and deserves to achieve,” he said. JFLL began as JAMAL Foundation in 1973, as an agency of the Ministry of Education. It supports the UNESCO goal of basic Education for All by 2015 and the national drive towards the achievement of universal secondary education. JFLL’s mission is to partner with other organisations to provide adult education programmes, which will establish a culture of lifelong learning that will empower individuals and contribute to national development. Commonwealth of Learning is an intergovernmental organisation created by Commonwealth Heads of Government to encourage the development and sharing of open learning/distance education knowledge, resources and technologies. COL is helping developing nations improve access to quality education and training Advertisementslast_img read more

Vermont orders cease and desist to cryptocurrency company LevelNet

first_imgVermont Business Magazine The Vermont Department of Financial Regulation has issued a cease and desist order to LevelNet(link is external), of Irving, California, for violations related to the Vermont Uniform Securities Act. LevelNet is conducting an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) seeking to raise money from investors across the country in exchange for their newly created cryptocurrency. The department’s investigation determined LevelNet is violating Vermont law by deceptively advertising unfounded and unrealistic investment returns and failing to properly register the investment. The department ordered LevelNet to immediately stop advertising and selling in Vermont.This investigation was part of the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) coordinated series of enforcement actions by state regulators to crack down on fraudulent cryptocurrency-related investment schemes.“The rapid rise of Bitcoin has made Main Street investors aware and interested in cryptocurrencies and ICOs,” said Commissioner Michael Pieciak “although many are legitimate offerings that are fully compliant with law – many are not – and this order serves as a good reminder to exercise caution when considering investing in these products.”The department previously issued a cryptocurrency investor alert(link is external) warning Vermonters about promises of exaggerated profits and that many fraudulent investment schemes involve unlicensed individuals or unregistered investments. Vermonters can contact the department at 802-828-3420 or [email protected](link sends e-mail) for help determining whether those selling or advising investments are properly registered.NASAA members from more than 40 jurisdictions throughout North America, including Vermont, participated in “Operation Cryptosweep,” which to date has resulted in nearly 70 inquiries and investigations and 35 pending or completed enforcement actions related to ICOs or cryptocurrencies since the beginning of May. The department’s investigation was conducted by Emily Kisicki, director of enforcement and examinations; Karla Nuissl, assistant general counsel; and overseen by William Carrigan, deputy commissioner of securities. Source: DFR 6.4.2018. website(link is external).last_img read more

City Of Kenai Tackles Onsite Marijuana Consumption

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Licensed retail marijuana businesses in Alaska will be able to begin applying for a “special onsite use endorsement” from the state beginning April 11. The Kenai City Council voted to move forward with the city attorney drafting an ordinance to submit to the city Planning and Zoning Commision. Local governments will have the option to prohibit endorsements for on-site consumption. The Kenai City Council weighed in on whether or not the city should allow onsite consumption within city limits at their meeting on Wednesday. Bloom: “I would draft an ordinance as if we were going to allow it, incorporate it into our code, bring that to planning and zoning. Then they would work with it and bring it back to council with their recommendation.”   An ordinance will be introduced at the Kenai City Council meeting on April 3, and then referred to the P&Z commission at their meeting on April 10. The Alaska Alcohol and Marijuana Control Board first began considering onsite marijuana consumption rules in 2016, but rejected the project in 2017. Alaska is the first state to authorize on-site consumption. Kenai City Attorney Scott Bloom: “There are two options; we could not take any action and then in that case I would bring forward an ordinance to incorporate on-site consumption into our existing conditional use permit process. Council also has the option to opt-out of allowing onsite consumption or to enact regulations that are more stringent than the state regulations.” last_img read more

Kings and Queens Come to Life: Retelling History Through Apps

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting “All those things you’ve had to level out to make the line of narrative … you can put back in,” Starkey told the Guardian. “I no longer have to take these decisions that involve sacrifice. The reader can arrive at the judgement for themselves.”Kings and Queens is interactive history at its best. It provides timelines, family trees and lineage and the themes that have emerged in tracking 2,000 years of British royalty. Starkey provides audio and video of the abridged text of his book. Oh, there is also feature footage of the most recent royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton (if you are into that kind of thing). dan rowinski Tags:#history#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… How do you visualize your thoughts? Are your dreams more like a sit-com or a documentary? English historian David Starkey thinks his thoughts and work are best represented through mobile applications after seeing his book, Crown and Country, turned into a rich media app.The goal of Starkey’s app — Kings and Queens — is to bring his book, and history, to life. If you are familiar with the history of the British monarchy, it is one of the most fascinating tales of intrigue, betrayal, politics and power in the history of the world. The topic was begging to be brought to interactive life. Starkey’s app is not just a splendid way to blend documentary and books but could signal the future of literature by looking into the past.“It’s a case of the technology catching up with what I wanted to do,” Starkey said in an interview with The Guardian’s Apps blog. “Television is a performance, but apps actually reflect thought processes.”Starkey told The Guardian that the app, created by Trade Mobile, “reflects the creative processes of a writer.” It gives him the ability to take certain aspects of history and his writing and give them digital life, as opposed to leaving them on the cutting room floor if he were making a documentary.
