EPAG-ECD Trainees Showcase Competence

first_imgDeafening applause from the audience filled the Love Center Ministries Church on the Old Road last Friday as graduates from the Economic Empowerment of Adolescent Girls and Young Women (EPAG), impressed their trainers, families and well-wishers by relaying what they learned from their seven-month training.The girls, 60 in number, were recruited for the teacher’s aide and care-giving training last year following a thorough screening.During Friday’s graduation ceremony, the trainees took turns in sharing their experiences and demonstrating how prepared they are to contend for the job market.The guests and trainers were not only impressed because the trainees are girls, but also by their use of grammar and how politely they conducted themselves on stage.Dressed in green and black uniforms, the girls explained and dramatized the roles of teacher’s aide and caregiver in simple but Standard English, which moved the guests to give the graduates resounding rounds of applause.The guest speaker, Ms. Florence Allen-Jones, Assistant Education Minister for Early Childhood Education, said EPAG is a successful program that has impacted the lives of girls and women in Liberia. “As we can see here today, development of girls and women means well for a country, and it should be a priority for government’s partners,” she said.Apart from Liberia, other countries including Nepal, Rwanda, Jordan, South Sudan, Afghanistan, Laos and Haiti, have benefited from the program, according to Mrs. Jones.She praised the trainees for devoting time to undergo the tough, seven-month training, adding that all the stakeholders, including the trainees, are feeling the rewards of the effort.Meanwhile Mrs. Jones has cautioned the graduates to shun vices with negative effects, and to remain loyal and patriotic enough to pass on positive attitudes that contribute to nation building.Montserrado County District #10 Representative Julius F. Berrian said to enlighten girls is like a blind man who finally gained his sight.Berrian cautioned the graduates not to be creators of problems, but to be problem solvers instead.He also noted that there will come a time when Liberia will experience donor fatigue, and in order to prepare for such eventuality, there is a need for government to take ownership of the program by allotting a budget to sustain it.He said the program is essential because it helps to reduce social problems in the society.A Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection representative emphasized the need for training girls and women to improve society and to bridge the gap of inequality between male and female.Sceane Abdul-Baki then extended gratitude to EPAG on behalf of Minister Julia Duncan Cassell for training the 60 girls.The EPAG and Early Childhood Development program are implemented by the Child Assistance Program (CAP) and funded by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).Ministries of Education and Gender, Children and Social Protection are also collaborating partners.CAP’s Executive Director Mrs. Elizabeth B. Blama said 56 of the 60 girls have been assigned in various schools for internship, while the remaining four are operating their own businesses.The EPAG pilot project began in September 2009, with the first and second rounds ending in December 2012. These phases were funded by the Nike Foundation and the Government of Denmark. It targeted 2,500 adolescent girls and young women in Montserrado and Margibi counties.Round three was held from June 2013 to July 2014 and was funded by SIDA and implemented in Montserrado, Margibi and Grand Bassa counties, targeting 1,000 girls.This fourth round began in February 2016 and ended in January 2017. It consisted of six components including Business Development Skills; EPAG Boys Pilot; Early Childhood Development Job Skills Pilot; Development of EPAG alumni system and activities; Village Savings and Loans Association Pilot; and EPAG Round Four Quantitative and Qualitative Research.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

5 Years Since its First Tweet, Twitter Shows That 3 is Better Than 1

first_imgTwitter’s engineers work a lot. We now know that. We also now know that there are 200 of them who have been working since last June to make sure of one thing – that three data centers are better than one.Today is Twitter’s five year anniversary, a fitting day to get a glimpse for how a new, upgraded infrastructure will give some guarantee that Twitter will be around for five more years and hopefully a lot longer than that.In a revealing blog post yesterday by Twitter engineer Michael Abbott, we learn a lot has changed since last June when Twitter went down for ten hours. Have a breakdown like that and it raises questions about the future of any organization. Twitter recognizes that. The new infrastructure is Twitter’s core team telling us and trying to convince us that the service is built for long-term scalability with uptime a sure thing and not a question mark.Twitter is HiringFirst off, it’s only a last mention in the post but Twitter is hiring, looking for more to join its ranks. Abbott:P.S. Twitter is hiring across engineering and operations. If you want to develop novel systems that scale on the order of billions, join the flock.That’s an important point. It shows that Twitter will continue to invest people into its infrastructure. It distinguishes Twitter as a world-class technology company that is building an intellectual capacity as much as anything else.It also backs up what Abbott says are the long-term plans that Twitter made and began putting into place last September. A plan that Abbott writes will guarantee three things:Keep pace with capacity needs.Give the user and developer community better reliability.Allow for new product offerings. alex williams Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting The infrastructure sits at the core of the strategy. To start, the engineers replicated Twitter’s core systems to a second data center, where it moved, among other things, Jack Dorsey’s first tweet from @jack to the latest from @honeybadger. The second data center served as a staging laboratory for Twitter’s replication and migration strategies. Simultaneously, Twitter prepped its third larger data center as its final nesting ground. And who is @honeybadger you may ask? Honeybadger is a Twitter creation that stopped by a Twitter company meeting last week. Honeybadger is hilarious. We’re not sure what @honeybadger has to do with Twitter’s new data centers except for the entertainment quotient.But the infrastructure investment is a confident step for Twitter, showing that it’s here for the long-run with a level of service users and developers expect from a world-class technology company.

Overheating from South Windows

first_imgThese are part of the solar shading plan. The idea is to install the louvers in spring and keep them around until fall, and then take them off and stash them for the winter. These louvers will prevent high-angle light from making it through the window in the summer and heating the interior space. By installing them on the outside, we minimize heat gain inside — hopefully most of the heat that is generated when sunlight is absorbed by these shades will re-radiate into the outside air, rather than heating the inside of the house. Andrea and I recently started sleeping in the house, so some things that I’ve been noticing about the heating profile of the house are starting to become clear.When we finally got the HRV running a few weeks ago, I was disappointed to notice that we don’t have the kind of evenness of temperature between the upper and lower stories of the house that we were hoping for. My first panicked theory about this was that the HRV wasn’t working. Panicked, because the ducts are all nice and snug behind walls now, so if we got it wrong, it’s going to be a real pain to fix.The good news is that I don’t think the problem is the HRV, although I’m contemplating one tweak to the vent layout which we could do without any wall surgery. A recent updateIn August 2014, Ted Lemon wrote the following update on the overheating issue.Over the past two years, we’ve learned that there isn’t a problem with overheating in spring. As summer approaches, before it gets really hot, night flushing is completely adequate to keep the house comfortable.As the summer progresses, the sun gets high enough that there is minimal solar gain. Not none, but minimal. This turns out to be beneficial, because summers in Vermont are humid, but not much hotter than our preferred indoor temperature. With a little solar gain through the windows, we wind up running the heat pump in air conditioning mode enough to bring down the humidity; without the solar gain it would get too cold.There is a bit of an issue with overheating in late summer, when the sun is lower but it’s still warm out. Louvers might help a bit with that, but I think we’re talking about somewhere between two weeks and a month, and as the weather gets crisper, night flushing should start to be effective again.We were having trouble with overheating upstairs last summer, and I started to use a box fan laid flat to push cold air up and basically stir and mix the air in the house. This turned out to be quite effective. So partway through the summer we had Bill Congleton install a Haiku fan in the atrium. This draws about 35 watts on full blast, and we don’t generally run it on full blast because it isn’t necessary and creates too much of a breeze. Once we had the fan in, we haven’t had any problems with temperature gradients — it’s about the same temperature upstairs as down. The fan’s very pretty, too. RELATED ARTICLES Passivhaus Buildings Don’t Heat ThemselvesAll About Glazing OptionsHigh-Solar-Gain Glazing Study Shows That Expensive Windows Yield Meager Energy Returns We specified high-solar-gain glazingWe’re experiencing some overheating. Why is Peter seeing different results? I don’t know, but I have a theory. I think the windows in the houses in Charlotte may not have the same solar heat gain coefficient as ours, and may reflect more high-incidence light, while letting low-incidence light in, so that they gain more heat in the winter than they do in the summer, even if the same amount of light is hitting them. The way our house is set up, we have a heat pump indoor unit on the wall downstairs, right in the center of the house. We have nothing upstairs. So the reason I was worried that the HRV wasn’t working is that one possible interpretation of the data is that we’re cooling the house adequately, but the HRV isn’t doing its job in redistributing the heat evenly throughout the house. If that’s the case, it’s kind of a big problem.But having just spent the morning sitting down next to the windows with the heat pump off, I have a different theory. For most of the morning, it was nice and cool downstairs, but as more sun came in and the day went on, it started to get hot, just as it is upstairs in the afternoon. In other words, the heat coming in from the windows is heating the upstairs and downstairs evenly; the reason that it feels hotter upstairs is because the cooling effect of the heat pump completely counteracts the heating effect of the windows. I’ve confirmed this by turning the heat pump back on.So this gives me some real confidence that when we get around to building and installing the louvers, we will stop experiencing overheating in the south part of the house. I’m still a little tempted to add one more ventilation supply vent (fresh air grille) on the south side of the house upstairs, but that’s something I’m hoping to have a chance to debate with the guys at Zehnder. If it needs to be done, it’s a really easy fix, because I can do it up in the utility loft, which doesn’t have a finished floor.center_img Our original plan included exterior louversWhen we talked with Peter Schneider (one of the two energy consultants on our project) about the possibility of overheating, he reported his experience with some of the houses that Efficiency Vermont has designed up in Charlotte, Vermont. These all have lots of south-facing windows, and Peter hasn’t seen problems with overheating in the summer. Based on Peter’s reports, we were kind of hoping to get away without doing one of the features we’ve got on the plan: active shading on the south-facing windows.If you look at the drawing of the house shown below, which is a view of the south face, you’ll see that the lower windows have what looks like louvers on them. Low indoor humidity during the winterThe bad news is that we’re having problems with low indoor humidity during the winter. We’d originally imagined that because we were sealing the house so tightly, we’d have indoor humidity issues, but that was based on an incorrect understanding of the reason why houses get humid: lack of air exchanges. With the HRV running at 30% or 60% of capacity most of the winter, we were seeing humidity getting down into the 20-30% range, which was uncomfortable.This is the one big failing of the fancy HVAC arrangement so far. It’s actually quite hard to counteract because there are so many point sources of air and so many exhaust ducts that there’s no good place to install a humidifier where it will affect the whole house other than inline with the HRV.We talked with Zehnder about this, but they have had bad experiences with whole-house humidifiers causing condensation in the ducts when customers have installed them, so they strongly recommend against the installation of a humidifier.I think it would be possible to have a very tightly controlled humidification system coupled with an HRV that wouldn’t cause condensation because it would be sensitive to the inner temperature of the house and the humidity of the input air, but that appears to be a product waiting on someone to decide to make it.We can get the humidity up a bit by drying clothes indoors, but we don’t do enough laundry for this to be a complete solution to the problem. So this is our little bit of remaining future work; I have a few ideas, but nothing concrete enough to talk about yet.

Why Geographic Segmentation Still Matters in 2019

first_imgYour customers’ perspectives don’t remain the same over time, so what you offer shouldn’t stay static, either. Geographic segmentation can help businesses differentiate their strategies based on regional and cultural preferences. How we structure our days, what we eat, and even what our homes look like can be drastically different based on where we live. This is important for national and international companies to remember, especially if they’re opening a location in a new region or country. Starbucks utilized this geographic specification when it expanded into China; it took the time to create products and an atmosphere that would feel like home for Chinese residents. The stores featured a variety of teas and regional foods that catered to the region’s existing tastes. Unlike the grab-and-go atmosphere in the U.S., coffee and tea shops in China aim to be a destination that offers a tranquility to the beverage connoisseur. That’s why the stores were larger than what a U.S. customer might be used to and offered more seating space.

Related Posts Getting to know your customers on a geographic level can also ensure that your business strategy maintains its agility. Predicting customers’ behavior and their response to specific products is necessary, but so is adapting what you’re selling to what they’re actually buying. It’s important to keep in mind that your customers’ engagement — and product excitement — is going to vary geographically. Spanish fashion company Zara has integrated this engagement-focused strategy in its production process. The company prides itself on creating products that are in line with current fashion trends, which is made possible largely because of its constant and rapid production cycle. Zara designs and produces items in roughly monthly cycles that allow the company to continue producing what actually sells. This way, the brand isn’t locked into a strategy or products that were created prior to consumer and market feedback. Utilizing geographic segmentation can help ensure that your business keeps stocking what your customers are excited about — and redesigning what isn’t working.Where customers live plays a big role in what they buy — and smart brands will take that into account as they develop offerings. While online platforms make it possible to buy anything from anywhere, that doesn’t mean people will. Geographic segmentation is still valuable in helping your company pinpoint what will get individual customers to pull the trigger. 3. Prioritize the agility of your business strategy. Seasonal variations and weather can seriously impact customer behavior and need to be taken into account. Simple seasonal changes can be catastrophic for a company that isn’t utilizing geographic segmentation. What your customers wear throughout the year will change drastically based on where they live. It’s why clothing and apparel companies still utilize geographic segmentation to target customers buying bikinis in California, while those living in New York might be searching for parkas. Weather patterns can even affect the purchase price that customers are willing to pay for certain products. A Canadian study found that sunnier weather tended to increase both consumption levels and the price spent per item. Sunshine led to a willingness to pay more for items like green tea or gym memberships, while cloudy weather made consumers willing to spend more on products like tobacco, alcohol, and coffee.    In the digital age, it can be tempting to believe that where you live no longer matters in relation to what you buy. And it can be easy for non-local businesses to discount localized information. After all, it shouldn’t matter where you customers live because they can always buy your product online, right? And with online shopping continuing to expand its reach from clothing to electronics to paper towels, geographic relevance appears to be taking a backseat. But where your customers live is still relevant to their purchasing habits, regardless of the size and location of your business; just look at Netflix for proof. The digital streaming giant has made headlines in recent years for its massive spending on original content, with the bill totaling more than $10 billion in a 12-month period. But its investment in original content has begun to pay off, especially as networks develop their own streaming platforms that could eventually control a bulk of the content that Netflix currently hosts.How Netflix is utilizing geographic segmentation and coming out aheadA study conducted by InMyArea in conjunction with Netflix tracked the most popular Netflix shows by state over time. In 2013, when Netflix released some of its first original shows, including “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black,” only 19.6 percent of states had a Netflix original show in the most-viewed slot. But by 2018, the most-watched show in 48 states (96.1 percent) was a Netflix original. That’s a remarkable number, considering that only 8 percent of the site’s content is original. Netflix doesn’t have to lobby for viewers on a state-by-state basis, but by understanding customer behavior and viewing habits, it can more accurately cater to the dominant viewing culture in each state. For Netflix, geographic segmentation might actually be key to the platform’s success, and by understanding the variety of demographics in each state, the brand can better create shows that represent viewers’ reality. Why geographic segmentation remains vital to your industryGeographic segmentation allows your company to adapt to the varying needs and wants of customers in different locations. Not all of your customers are the same; your marketing shouldn’t be, either.

Cool runnings too as Malaysia, Singapore take up Winter Olympics challenge

first_imgGlobe Business launches leading cloud-enabled and hardware-agnostic conferencing platform in PH There were no official programs or funding for figure skating so Yee’s parents had to spend huge amounts of their own money on his training.They also sent him to train abroad during school holidays, in China and South Korea.“People said: ‘Are you mad? You’re sacrificing all this money,’” his mother Irene Cheow told AFP. “We’re looked at differently now.”Yee’s efforts paid off and he won gold at last year’s Southeast Asian Games, and came eighth in the 2017 Asian Winter Games. His crowning glory was qualification for Pyeongchang, alongside Malaysian skier Jeffrey Webb.Speed skater Cheyenne Goh has faced similar challenges in neighboring Singapore, where even a modest cold snap can set the population shivering.This month a freak monsoon surge sent the mercury plummeting to almost 21 degrees Celsius (70 Fahrenheit) — chilly by Singapore standards — sending people rushing to the shops to buy scarves and winter jackets.But unlike her compatriots, Goh got a taste for a cold climate after moving to Canada aged four, where she developed a love of winter sports.The 18-year-old initially took up ice hockey, a staple of Canadian life, before discovering short-track speed skating while watching the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.As well as qualifying for the Olympics, she has represented Singapore at the Asian Winter Games and won two silver medals and a bronze at last year’s SEA Games.No winter to speak of LATEST STORIES Read Next NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers Liukin steps down as US women’s gymnastics team coordinatorPutin to athletes: Ignore doping scandals at Olympics Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Goh, who is taking a year off after high school and splits her time between Singapore and Canada, insisted her success was not unusual.“It’s not all that strange that I’m representing a country with no winter to speak of at a winter sport,” she told AFP after a recent training session in the city-state.She is modest about her chances of matching the success of swimmer Joseph Schooling, who won Singapore’s first Olympic gold medal in Rio in 2016.But supporters hope her participation in the women’s 1,500 meters category will encourage more Singaporeans to take up winter sports.“After Joseph Schooling’s gold medal, many more became keen on swimming — and we are hoping that the same happens to us,” said Singapore Ice Skating Association president Sonja Chong.The Malaysian and Singaporean athletes join a small group of Southeast Asians heading to Pyeongchang, including several from Thailand and the Philippines.No matter how well he does, Malaysian skater Yee said his qualification had already shown that athletes from the tropics can prove the doubters wrong.“It really does show that many things are possible,” he said. “Even without winter in Malaysia, we can still be there.” ABRELATED STORIES:North, South Korea share the ice in figure skating When growing up, the only places he could find to practice were a handful of small, crowded rinks in the shopping malls scattered around the capital Kuala Lumpur.Figure skating on the tiny rinks was “like trying to get an A380 (world’s biggest airliner) to land on a very small runway”, the 20-year-old told AFP.But he persevered and began training in the morning and evening when the rinks were less crowded.“I skated two times a day, six days — sometimes six-and-a-half days — a week,” he said.‘Are you mad?’ADVERTISEMENT John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC AFP official booed out of forum Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises It is the latest sign of an unlikely, yet growing, interest in ice and snow sports in a winterless, steamy region, where temperatures rarely drop below 20 degrees Celsius (68 Fahrenheit) in most places.A major milestone for winter sports in the region came last year when they featured for the first time at the Southeast Asian Games in Malaysia, with ice hockey, figure skating and speed skating making their debuts.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutBut it was not without problems — puddles formed on the hockey rink during matches, slowing down the puck and forcing marshals with squeegees to dash onto the ice to mop up the water.Figure skater Julian Yee, who will represent Malaysia at next month’s Games, is typical of athletes from the region who have had to overcome a lack of facilities, limited official support and public skepticism to pursue their dreams.

Fitness is our main concern: Kumble

first_imgFormer Test captain Anil Kumble reckons it is India’s best chance to lift the ODI World Cup and end the 28-year-old jinx, but fitness of players would be a major concern. “My only concern is the fitness of the guys. If they can last the entire tournament without injuries, we could certainly regain the Cup,” Kumble said on Saturday.Kumble said along with India, defending champions Australia, South Africa, and Sri Lanka are the other favourites for the coveted trophy. “We have a very bright chance, probably it is our best opportunity to win the Cup,” said Kumble. Kumble weighed the advantages that India had to win back the title, last won by Kapil’s Devils in 1983.”We have a lot of advantages going into the tournament. The form of the players is encouraging. The quality of players is good. “There are some all-rounders as well who can chip in with both bat and ball,” emphasised Kumble, who was part of the Indian World Cup campaigns in 1996 (at home), 1999 (England), 2003 (South Africa) and 2007 (West Indies). India’s most successful bowler feels the sub-continental wickets would be of great advantage to India.”Besides the form and quality of players, the pitches would suit our game. We know our conditions too well. We know what we can expect,” said Kumble, who as president of the Karnataka State Cricket Association, will oversee the World Cup matches in the Garden City.Talking about the disappointment of losing the 1996 semifinals and the 2003 finals, Kumble said: “We came very close to winning. It was disappointing that we could not get to do what we were capable as a team. “Each time we got close and lost, we knew we had to wait for a long time as the World Cup is played only once in four years.”advertisementAsked if Sachin Tendulkar, who will be playing his sixth successive World Cup, will be under pressure to deliver in front of the home crowd, Kumble said: “He has been around for 21 years. So there is no question of him being under pressure. “He is playing at his best that I have seen. He has looked relaxed in all the matches that I have watched.If he plays the World Cup like any other ODI,he should be scoring lots of runs,” said Kumble. When India came close to winning the title but lost in the finals of 2003, Kumble said Tendulkar, like the rest of the team, was terribly disappointed. “Considering that we came very close to winning in 2003, I am sure Sachin will be looking forward to winning the one trophy that has eluded him.The entire team will also be striving hard to win back the Cup after five attempts (since 1983).” Kumble said the expectations will be high as the entire nation will be looking up to the players to win the title. “The expectations will be there as everyone would want the team to triumph. But the players have the experience to cope with it,” he said. Aside from the top teams, Kumble felt Pakistan could be the surprise package.”Australia, South Africa and Sri Lanka will be front runners for the title along with India. But we cannot underestimate Pakistan, as you never know what they could do. They are an unpredictable side,” said Kumble. Kumble’s newly-elected committee has ensured that the players are given facilities that they richly deserve. The dressing rooms have been refurbished. The open-air media box has been air-conditioned.The entire Chinnaswamy Stadium, which will host five World Cup matches, besides two warm-up games, has been given a fresh coat of paint. “The players deserve the best. Without them there would be no stadia, no crowd,” said Kumble.last_img read more
