Here’s to the Educators

first_imgOver the course of the past few months, the teachers that helped our kindergartners read their first books and readied our high schoolers to step out on their own as adults have seen unprecedented challenges.Educators’ roles dramatically adjusted as schools around the world shifted to remote learning. Many had to completely surrender expectations for the end of their school year, and most didn’t have the opportunity to give their students a proper send-off.Every day is teacher appreciation day, and now, more than ever, we realize we can’t possibly live up to the standards our teachers have instilled. On behalf of our team members from around the world, the millions touched by teachers each day, and the entire technology community, we’re offering our sincerest thanks to the teachers for continuing to better our community day after day.Thank you for providing a sense of normalcy to the otherwise uprooted daily schedules of our children. Thank you for remembering those in our communities with differing needs and providing solutions to keep them learning. Thank you for rising to the challenge and using this opportunity to build up your teams, communities and leaders. The impact of COVID-19 is changing the way communities live, work and stay healthy. We know educators are impacted, in both their professional and personal lives, but they haven’t let the challenges they’re facing show through when teaching our children. They refuse to quit, committed to reaching every student and making the most of the tough situation.All of us have benefited from a teacher at some point in our lives. We recognize how difficult it is for these incredible educators to teach our children, even under normal circumstances.While technology has helped define the human experience for centuries, what we have learned over the past few weeks is that technology is nothing without teachers’ passion and dedication. We are here to help you succeed and listen to your needs as we navigate what the future brings. We are recognizing the adjustments we need to make to ensure we continue to provide the best education to all children. And we promise to continue to partner with you to find new ways to leverage technology as transform the way we teach and learn.To all of our teachers around the world, thank you.Please visit here for Teacher Appreciation Week discounts.last_img read more

Half-time: Fulham 0 Sheffield Wednesday 1

first_imgFulham trailed at the break to a well-worked 10th-minute goal by Fernando Forestieri.The Italian striker swept a low right-footed shot in off the far post after fine build-up play around the edge of the box involving Barry Bannan and Gary Hooper.Fulham had started brightly but were left shaken by the goal and struggled to get going in the final third.Their best chance of the half came from a Stefan Johansen corner, but Kevin McDonald sent a powerful header over the bar.Fulham were fortunate to survive when Gary Hooper slid the ball past the far post with just the keeper to beat, before Forestieri slashed an effort wide.Whites boss Slavisa Jokanovic selected the same team for the third game in a row, having beaten Huddersfield and Brentford.Fulham: Button; Fredericks, Kalas, Sigurdsson, Malone; Johansen, McDonald; Cairney, Aluko, Piazon; Martin.Subs: Bettinelli, Odoi, Ream, Sessegnon, Parker, Ayite, Smith.   Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

Findings vs Surmisings in Astronomy

first_imgThe Galex satellite (Galaxy Evolution Explorer) found “bright features” with an ultraviolet glow in the outskirts of a spiral galaxy, reported the BBC News.  What are they?  Scientists “think” they are large clusters of stars.  How much is known, and how much is interpreted?    The region imaged is the dark area around spiral galaxy M83 in the constellation Hydra.  Symmetrical arms of glowing hydrogen appear in the periphery of the more familiar central spiral.  If these are starry regions, the discovery is surprising: “The finding has surprised astronomers because the galactic periphery was assumed to lack high concentrations of ingredients needed to form stars.”  Each pixel in the Galex image would have to contain hundreds of thousands of stars.  It is impossible, therefore, for Galex to actually resolve them.  The Galex researchers compared their image with radio telescope data from the Very Large Array in New Mexico.  Did the VLA find the elusive stars?Light emitted in the radio portion of the electromagnetic spectrum can be used to locate gaseous hydrogen atoms.  These are seen as a good sign that the molecular form of the gas is also present.  And it is from this molecular gas that stars are born.    When the astronomers combined the radio and the Galex data, they found that they matched up.    “Clearly, the basic ingredients for star formation are out in those regions,” said Dr [Mark] Seibert [Carnegie Observatories].The radio telescope did not resolve stars, either.  The leap from glowing gas to large clusters of stars was bridged by theory.  From there, another leap into cosmology was made, but this time it was labeled a speculation:The astronomers speculate that the young stars seen in far-flung regions of M83 could have formed under conditions resembling those of the early Universe, a time when space was not yet enriched with dust and heavier elements.    But this process is not well understood.Despite the disclaimer, the above paragraph still claimed the stars were “seen” when, in actuality, the radio and UV instruments merely showed the presence of atomic hydrogen gas, from which they assumed molecular gas was present, from which they assumed stars would form, even though regions of this low density were not expected to have stars.    The Galex satellite is operated by JPL and Caltech.  The original press release is on the Galex home page.Maybe there are stars there.  These astronomers did little to ground their interpretations in empirical data.  Not a single star was observed in this gas, yet we are supposed to believe there are hundreds of thousands of them in each pixel?  Are we supposed to respect a pure speculation about the early universe resting on the admission that “this process is not well understood”?  Try that with gnome theory.  “We did not find any gnomes, but we think we found some gas they emit.  We didn’t expect to find that gas in the desert.  It might shed light, however, on how gnomes arose on the early earth, before the land was enriched with toadstools.”    If a scientist is not sure of something, let him say so or keep his speculations to himself.  Today’s scientists often do a very poor job of discriminating between observation and interpretation.  News reporters shift between them seamlessly and shamelessly.  It is up to the reader, and to sites like this, to sift the shift and lift the fogma.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Sing a song for Madiba

first_imgStory by Bhekumuzi MdakaneSouth African’s from all walks of life will also be joining in.The song is one that is really easy to learn:“Happy birthday to you “Happy birthday to you “Happy birthday dear Madiba“Happy birthday to you“We love you Tata“We love you Tata“We love you dear Madiba“Happy birthday to you”Musicians Danny K and Kabelo will lead the singing.The event, an initiative of the Department of Basic Education, LEAD SA and the Shout Foundation, is supported by Brand South Africa as well as the Nelson Mandela Foundation, and Proudly SA.Other artists and celebrities taking part include the Bala Brothers, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, the Drakensberg Boys Choir, Baby Jake Matlala, comedian Joey Rasdien, TV presenter Leanne Manas, and Miss South Africa 2011, Melinda Bam.International Mandela Day is celebrated each year on Mandela’s birthday, 18 July.On the day, individuals and organisations are called on to do something that is “of service to one’s fellow human”.According to the Mandela Day website, the aim of the day is “to inspire individuals to take action to help change the world for the better and, in doing so, build a global movement for good”.This year, the Department of Education and Lead SA hope to bag a place in the Guinness Book of Records with more than two million South Africans singing the birthday song on Mandela’s special day.At almost 94 Madiba may be frail, but his legacy of selfless service to humanity is strong and his spirited fight for a world of freedom and racial equality continues.And in return South Africa will sing him a birthday song which, it is hoped, will not only break a world record but will inspire the people of South Africa to unite and work as one for the greater good.Source: City of Johannesburglast_img read more
