Stop Cataclysmic Climate Change: Take Action Now - Jim Kim

Stop Cataclysmic Climate Change: Take Action Now - Jim Kim | Help and Support everybody around the world | Scoop.it

   This week the World Bank released a new scientific report that paints a sobering picture of our future if we fail to “Turn Down the Heat” (http://bit.ly/UO5GNq) and put the brakes on climate change. With greenhouse gas emissions still rising, the world is barreling down a path to heat up by 4 degrees Celsius by the end of the century. That could trigger cataclysmic changes – extreme heat waves, crop-choking droughts, rising seas and floods affecting hundreds of millions of people.

 

   This isn’t a future any of us wants for our children. The World Bank commissioned the report by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research to help us understand the science and the potential impact of a 4-degree world.

   One conclusion was that the poorest countries and the poorest people are expected to suffer the most. The report foresees inundated coastal cities, increasing risks to food production, water scarcity in many regions, more frequent tropical cyclones, and irreversible loss of biodiversity. Some of the most vulnerable cities are in Mozambique, Madagascar, Mexico, Venezuela, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam.

6 Words That Should Never Appear on a Resume

6 Words That Should Never Appear on a Resume | Help and Support everybody around the world | Scoop.it

Despite the fact that hiring managers now ask for a variety of application materials, resumes are still an extremely important part of the process. And because they’re so important, people usually feel the need to use old-fashioned, stilted, and even cliché language when writing them.

While this might not sound like a huge issue, take a moment to remember that your resume is just one of many that are being reviewed for the position, often times, by just one person. If the person reading it can’t understand what you’re trying to get across, or is mildly annoyed by your fluffy word choices, or is getting déjà vu from a similar resume, you have a problem. Remember it’s the hiring manager’s job to skim your resume, not to read between the lines and decipher what makes you unique.

To make sure you don’t suffer from language that will get your resume placed in the “no” pile, remove these six words from your resume.

Interesting free tool that could help with section 508 compliance. Only the paid versions of the program have the "natural" voices. 

David Swaddle's comment, May 19, 11:09 PM
I think the fact that they went for a professional 'real human' voice on their video says a lot for the product. When the manufacturer won't use it themselves you have to realise that it's not quite there yet.

Dificultades al aprendizaje informal. | Help and Support everybody around the world | Scoop.it
En mi juventud profesional, cuando me dedicaba a la formación de formadores, distinguíamos entre cuatro métodos de aprendizaje: expositivo, demostrativo, interrogativo y por descubrimiento.

Ninguno de estos métodos era por sí mismo mejor que otro y su utilización dependía del objetivo de aprendizaje propuesto.

La inadecuación de un método o una técnica no depende de él mismo sino de su relación con el objetivo propuesto y de la pericia y maestría en su utilización, en ambos casos responsabilidad de quien lo utiliza. El método, como un martillo o un cuchillo, es absolutamente neutro, son las personas las que le dan sentido y lo cargan de significado en función de su utilización.

knowledge catalysts - catalizadores de conocimiento | Help and Support everybody around the world | Scoop.it

Most people have heard Clay Shirky’s quote that, “It’s not information overload, it’s filter failure.” The professor and author has coined terms such as ‘cognitive surplus’ to explain that we have the mental capacity to do a lot more with our collective intelligence, but too often, societal barriers inhibit us. We are too busy with the day-to-day commute, usually in a deluge of noise from radios, billboards, and news sources, to reflect and consider bigger issues. Getting paid every two weeks focuses employee attention on the short term, as do quarterly reports for executives.
