York Hill early childhood institution copped the Highest Standard award after attaining 76 per cent compliance.Sandals Foundation and the Rockhouse Foundation were also honoured for their contribution to the development of early childhood education in Jamaica, particularly in Westmoreland.In her address, Chief Education Officer in the Ministry of Education, Dr. Grace McLean, commended the EEC for its sterling contribution to repositioning and reforming the early childhood sector in Jamaica.She underscored the importance of early childhood education to the development of the child, noting that modern science has proven that a child will learn more in the first six years than for the rest of his or her life.“If we believe that Jamaican children are as bright, if not brighter than other children in the world, then it must be the system’s responsibility to harness this innate ability and to give our children a stable and solid start for primary level education,” Dr. McLean said.“As practitioners and educators we must redouble our efforts to ensure that early childhood is adequately served and treated as a priority within the education sector,” she added.The Ministry has identified early childhood education as its number one priority and has been seeking to put in place new policies to improve the sector.Dr. McLean said the Ministry is currently focussing on improving remuneration to early childhood teachers as well as addressing the nutritional needs of the children.

Interested in helping address growing poverty in Shawnee Mission? Here are some good options

first_imgGently used coats are in demand for the winter months.We’ve had a number of inquiries from readers in response to our stories on growing poverty in the Shawnee Mission School District this week. (You can find the first piece, on the statistics showing the trend, here. The second piece, on how agencies and employees are working to address it, is here.A number of Shawnee Mission patrons have asked what they can do to help, so we asked the Shawnee Mission Education Foundation and the Shawnee Mission Area Council PTA for suggestions about where people can contribute donations and volunteer efforts. Here’s what they had to say:Kimberly Hinkle, Shawnee Mission Education FoundationIn 2013, the Shawnee Mission Education Foundation started the Shawnee Mission Cares Fund, which provides financial assistance to our families in crisis. When our teachers, nurses, social workers or principals identify a student with a need, they pass that on to us and we can respond immediately to the need. Unlike social services organizations that might require some financial data or other screening, we can take the recommendation of the school team and get the problem solved usually in less than 24 hours.Here’s a few examples of Cares Fund requests we’ve had recently:1. Emergency housing for family who was evicted from their home. They planned to sleep in their car until an apartment became available. The Foundation paid for a week in a hotel for this family.2. Student whose mother was diagnosed with cancer and unable to work. We provided 5 weeks’ worth of grocery store gift cards to the family.3. We have paid for water bills, electric bills and gas bills…we know our kids can’t study if they don’t have the lights or heat on or if they can’t take a shower before school.4. We’ve done winter coats and other clothing and we’ve bought furniture for a family whose home was destroyed in a fire.We don’t have too many limits on the types of support we can give our families in need, but our families can only be referred to the Cares Fund twice per year. The Cares Fund is meant to be short-term emergency assistance. We trust our school teams to identify and refer these need to us.Each year, we see our requests through the Cares Fund increase substantially. We have never turned down a request due to lack of funding but our fear is that the needs will outgrow our existing funds. We have an incredibly generous community and some of them do not know about the work being done by the Foundation and the District to help our Shawnee Mission families. The support of our community is what keeps our Cares Fund alive.We truly believe that ALL means ALL and we are in the unique position to support needs at each of our schools. There are families in need at every single school in our district and we are able to help those families at a moment’s notice. This year alone, we’ve given more than $25,000 in assistance to our kids in crisis.Donations to the Cares Fund can be made online at www.smef.org or by calling 913-993-9360.Denise Sultz, Shawnee Mission Area Council PTAIf someone wants to help, [the SMAC Clothing Exchange] is a place where they can do much good with donations of used clothing and of money. If they choose to sponsor a clothing drive, especially for school-aged children, we would love to be the recipient. Another main component of our giving is new, clean packaged underwear for the children of the family. We can always accept a donation of newly purchased underwear. Money to purchase the underwear is always welcome — but having it purchased and delivered to us saves not only on our budget but also the time and energy of the volunteers. We do new socks as well.The needs vary depending on the season. Right now, we have limited summer hours and families might be looking for shorts and lightweight items. Of course, as we move toward fall, we will need heavier clothing such as good used jeans, sweaters, sweatshirts, and hats and gloves. We actually have a small selection of fancy dresses that have been donated that are popular for homecoming and for prom. We also have a small section of items pertinent to those families which might include a baby. Our main request is that the items be clean and not torn or ripped. We work across the district with the nurses to get items for their respective schools and the nurses also help let families know of the opportunity that the clothing center offers to our families. The clothing center is staffed by volunteers from PTAs across the Shawnee Mission District under the direction of the council but other volunteers are always welcome.You can find out more about how to donate to the Clothing Exchange on its website here.last_img read more

10 years after her murder, Kelsey Smith’s family continues work to educate students, law enforcement

first_imgThis year marks a decade since the abduction and murder of Kelsey Smith, who graduated from Shawnee Mission West just nine days before her death. As her parents Greg and Missey reflect on the tragedy that stripped them of their beloved daughter, they take some heart in the work the organization founded in her name has been able to do to educate students and law enforcement agents about steps they can take to prevent people from being victims themselves.On Monday, The Kelsey Smith Foundation will hold its annual golf classic to raise money for the group’s work.Greg Smith was in law enforcement for two decades before Kelsey’s death. In the aftermath of the murder, he began reviewing safety training programs in circulation, and found little geared toward youths, specifically those between ages 13 and 24.“That’s when people are most at-risk for being the victim of violent crime,” said Missey. “So we thought, we need to try to get some kind of training and safety education.”The Smiths worked to develop a curriculum that they could deliver to high schoolers and other youth to teach them the basics of safety awareness. Today, the foundation has delivered safety trainings to thousands and thousands of youth and young adults.The foundation also works with law enforcement agencies to teach officers about what lessons from Kelsey’s case can be applied to future investigations. Missey notes that “there was a lot that went right” in Kelsey’s case, which led to the arrest and conviction of her killer on charges of kidnapping, rape, sodomy and capital murder.For example, as soon as investigators identified the Overland Park Target as the possible location of her abduction, they quickly sought the surveillance camera footage from the parking lot. Had they waited even a few minutes later, that vital evidence might have been lost.“Had they gotten there even 15 minutes later, the camera would have taped over itself,” Missey said.While nothing can fill the hole left by the loss of their daughter, the Smiths take solace in the fact that the lessons learned from Kelsey’s case are helping young people stay safer and law enforcement track down violent criminals.“We learned a lot from Kelsey’s case, and we’ve been able to share those lessons,” Missey said. “People are doing things better because of Kelsey and Kelsey’s case.”People interested in participating in Monday’s golf event at Falcon Ridge Golf Course are encouraged to register here. There will likely be a few spots available the morning of the tournament, as well.last_img read more

UK health officials launch new infectious disease strategy

first_imgIn response to rising antibiotic resistance, the re-emergence of vaccine-preventable diseases, and the spread of novel pathogens around the globe, Public Health England (PHE) yesterday announced a new 5-year strategy aimed at strengthening the agency’s ability to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious diseases.The strategy includes a focus on containment and control of antibiotic-resistant infections. PHE said its national reference laboratory has identified 19 novel antibiotic-resistance mechanisms from patient clinical samples in the United Kingdom over the past decade, and 32 bacterial samples that were resistant to all antibiotics over the last 5 years.PHE also said 12 emerging infectious diseases were detected for the first time in England in the past decade, including MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus), monkeypox, pandemic H1N1 flu, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, and Zika virus. The infections were mainly acquired abroad, highlighting the amplified threat posed by increased movement of people and by climate change.”Despite our arsenal of vaccines and antimicrobials, infectious disease remains a real threat to public health. We are constantly faced with new threats, and anti-microbial resistance is growing,” Chris Whitty, incoming chief medical officer for England, said in an agency news release. “This new strategy will enable us to detect and prevent new threats as they arise, keeping us safe from potentially devastating consequences.”Strategic prioritiesThe new strategy is built around six core functions—prevent and protect, detect and control, prepare and respond, build and apply, advise and collaborate, generate and share—that PHE says will enable it to deliver 10 strategic priorities. Those priorities include reducing vaccine-preventable diseases, becoming a global leader in tackling antimicrobial resistance (AMR), and enhancing infectious disease surveillance capability.PHE says it hopes to reduce vaccine-preventable disease by improving uptake of existing vaccines and implementing new and improved vaccines. As part of this effort, boys in school year 8 will be offered the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine for the first time. PHE is also launching a “Value of Vaccines” social media campaign to help maintain trust in vaccination.Efforts to fight AMR will include a 15% reduction in antibiotic use by the National Health Service, development of new interventions to prevent bacterial infections, improving infection control to reduce transmission of resistant bacteria, and campaigns to raise awareness about misuse of antibiotics and AMR risks. In addition, new technologies that can help control outbreaks and improve diagnosis and treatment of bacterial infections, including whole-genome sequencing, will be optimized.Other strategic priorities outlined in the plan include eliminating hepatitis B and C, tuberculosis, and HIV; halting the rise in sexually transmitted infections; bolstering the response to major infectious disease outbreaks, such as pandemic flu; and strengthening global health activities to prevent the spread of emerging infections.See also:Sep 11 PHE Infectious Diseases Strategy 2020-2025Sep 11 PHE news releaselast_img read more

26 Menit Mengudara, Airbus A380 Tanpa Penumpang dan Kargo Milik ANA Balik Kandang

first_imgLogika yang dibangun adalah, dengan dimensi besarnya, bila pesawat dimaksimalkan dalam penerbangan khusus kargo besar kemungkinan akan sangat menguntungkan. Namun, nyatanya tidak demikian.Memuat kargo di kabin penumpang yang kosong melompong ditinggal pelanggan bukanlah opsi terbaik untuk memaksimalkan A380 sebagai armada khusus kargo. Dengan begitu, otomatis tak ada pilihan lain bagi maskapai terhadap koleksi A380nya kecuali terus digrounded.Akan tetapi, bagi pecinta A380, belakangan memang telah beredar kabar bahwa pesawat komersial terbesar milik maskapai Jepang, All Nippon Airways (ANA) sempat kembali mengudara. Situs FlightRadar24.com membuktikannya.Simple Flying melaporkan, pesawat dengan nomor registrasi JA382A itu tertangkap radar sempat kembali mengudara dengan membentuk persegi panjang tak sempurna dari rute yang dilalui. Pesawat diketahui lepas landas dari Bandara Internasional Tokyo Narita pukul 13:40 waktu setempat tanpa penumpang serta kargo dan mendarat 26 menit kemudian.Sayangnya, pesawat yang terakhir kali terbang 89 hari yang lalu itu terbang bukan untuk menjalani misi komersial dari maskapai, melainkan menjalani misi pemeliharaan. Meskipun tidak terbang, pesawat memang tetap harus melakukan penerbangan tanpa penumpang dan kargo untuk menjaga performa beberapa komponen pesawat, seperti landing gear, mesin, panel kokpit, dan lain sebagainya.Sebetulnya, tanpa harus terbang sekalipun maskapai bisa menguji beberapa komponen pesawat semacam landing gear dan mesin tanpa harus terbang, seperti yang dilakukan oleh Qantas terhadap beberapa armadanya. Namun, fasilitas yang belum mumpuni membuat ANA terpaksa menerbangkan A380nya untuk pemeliharaan.Baca juga: Mei 2019, ANA Hadirkan Airbus A380 dengan Motif Unik Kura-KuraSejauh ini, ANA diketahui memiliki tiga pesawat A380. Seharusnya, armada A380 keempat sudah mulai bergabung tahun ini. Namun, wabah virus corona membuatnya tertunda setidaknya hingga beberapa tahun ke depan. Jangankan menambah armada pesawat terbesar itu, pesawat (A380) yang ada saja sudah sejak 25 Maret lalu digrounded tanpa kejelasan waktu kapan akan kembali melayani penerbangan komersial.Di antara maskapai yang mengoperasikan A380, seperti Emirates, Qatar, British Airways, dan Lufthansa, ANA merupakan satu-satunya maskapai komersial berjadwal yang ‘memoles’ pesawat dengan livery yang indah berupa kura-kura berwarna hijau, oranye, dan biru. Sebetulnya Hi Fly juga melakukan hal serupa. Perusahaan penerbangan asal Portugal itu menyuguhkan livery A380 berupa terumbu karang, lengkap dengan ornamen lainnya. Namun, mereka adalah maskapai penerbangan carter, bukan maskapai penerbangan berjadwal seperti ANA.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related Sumber: flightglobal.com Setelah anjlok akibat wabah Covid-19 sejak Februari lalu, industri penerbangan global mulai bergairah.

Batting collapse hands WI women series defeat

first_imgWest Indies Women conceded a series defeat after going down to India Women by seven wickets in the third T20 International at the National Stadium, Providence last night with the latter now with an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series. After winning the toss and opting to bat in front of a handful of spectators and in cool conditions, the Caribbean side were contained to just 59-9, their lowest total in an uninterrupted T20I.Only two times have West Indies Women scored less than this total with 7-1 from two overs in a no- result contest and 42-8 in eight overs on the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method.The Indian spinners enjoyed a field day with the ball gripping as 27-year-old off-spinner Anuja Patil made the early breakthrough with a sharp return catch to send Hayley Matthews on her way for five. Shortly after, local girl Shemaine Campbelle, unable to score freely, was slapped to point for two from a dozen deliveries while Stacy-Ann King, who was dropped on duck, was bowled by Deepti Sharma for seven from 24 balls, in effect leaving West Indies Women reeling at 26-3.With West Indies Women 41-3, a 22-minute delay due to the lights on the north-east side of the ground shutting off, did not cool the red-hot India ladies who struck with the wicket of Chedean Nation who was stumped two balls into the resumption off of left-arm spinner Radha Yadav. Nation managed 11 from 27 balls, one of only two batters to reach double figures.West Indies Women had a glimmer of hope when Sheneta Grimmond smashed Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur down the ground into the dug-out for a six but that hope was extinguished in the next delivery with the Guyanese being trapped leg before wicket for eight as West Indies Women slipped to 48-7. Afy Fletcher was sent packing after being bowled with the first delivery she faced. Chinelle Henry was the other batter to reach double digits with 11 also, which came from 18 balls and included one four pulled through mid-wicket before she fell in the 18th over.Yadav ended with 2-6 from her four overs and was supported by Deepti Sharma with 2-12.The hosts were off to a wonderful start with off-spinner Matthews drawing down 15-year-old opener Shafali Verma down the ground as she looked to tuck it on the leg side but missed and allowed Campbelle a text-book stumping. Matthews then had another breakthrough with Smirti Mandhanna picking out Shakira Selman at cover for three.However, Jemimah Rodrigues produced a player of the match performance with an unbeaten 40 from 51 balls consisting of four boundaries while Sharma was on the other end on seven not out.The fourth match will be played on Sunday at 13:30 hours.last_img read more
