John Michel's curator insight, November 26, 2013 3:48 AM

We learned early on that our growth and success depended on our employees: how hard they worked, the ideas they had, how committed they were when times got tough, the types of relationships they formed with customers, and so much more. Keeping our employees inspired and happy, and honestly acknowledging how much we appreciated their loyalty and efforts, were some of our top priorities as business owners.

John Thurlbeck, FCMI FRSA's curator insight, November 26, 2013 11:13 AM

Senior managers often say that it is their people who matter most; then demonstrate the opposite by their behaviour! So here are some helpful tips to make sure you are really engaging your people where it matters!

 

Remember ... work is the thing you do, it is not the place you go to!

'Peak Salmon' May Be Unlikely, But Threats To Farmed Salmon Loom

'Peak Salmon' May Be Unlikely, But Threats To Farmed Salmon Loom | AquaEd | Scoop.it
Some speculate that overfishing of the small fish fed to farmed salmon led to the all-time high prices seen in 2013. But Norwegian salmon experts say the bigger threat to the farmed fish is disease.

PIRatE Lab's curator insight, February 28, 10:16 PM

The feed supply here is something of a (pardon the pun) red herring.

 

Salmon have been raised on a vegan diet (research done at Hubbs SeaWorld's Research Arm) now, so the dependency on fish meal/fish oil is in theory not a limiting factor per se.

 

The bigger issue is simply the space and associated potential environmental impacts.  We could do large scale farming totally in artificial mariculture facilities and have effectively zero pollution or other potential impacts.  The issue is cost.

 

More importantly, the issue of a limited absolute quantity of a finite substance (i.e. oil) can't compare to an actual living and reproducing resrouce like a fish, assuming we protect the environment and habitat of that fish so that these organisms can live.

Expanding Education and Workforce Opportunities Through Digital Badges

Expanding Education and Workforce Opportunities Through Digital Badges | AquaEd | Scoop.it

Digital badges offer students the opportunity to pave their own learning pathways and allow employers to verify necessary workforce skills, according to this report from the Alliance for Excellent Education and the Mozilla Foundation. The report defines digital badges as “credentials that represent skills, interests, and achievements earned by an individual through specific projects, programs, courses, or other activities.” A credible badge stores information online through a digital hyperlink about the associated skills, as well as what projects and tasks the badge holder completed to obtain it. This report explores digital badges and how they can be used to improve student learning and outcomes, as well as expand vocational and interest-based skills for learners of all age.
