    – It’s so hard being in school, one, and then being in school and kinda doing something that you’re not 100% sure about. (“Someone That You Love” by Jarreau Vandal) – Hey, hunkies and hunkles.

    She Fell 10,000 Feet And Survived 11 Days in the Amazon Rainforest

    She was exhausted, but she needed to keep moving. Her head throbbed with hunger. Every part of her body ached; she was covered in mosquito bites and had second degree sunburns. Her wristwatch stopped long ago, but she tried to estimate how many days it had been since she had fallen from the sky. At twilight she heard voices and thought that she was imagining things again. But then three men walked out of the rainforest and were stunned to see her. “I’m a girl who was in the LANSA crash,” she told them. “My name is Juliane.” Born to German zoologist parents Maria and Hans-Wilhelm on October 10, 1954,…

    Laptop Lifestyle – Job Automation Friend or Foe? V4-D

    – Why do you get dressed early in the morning in clothes that you buy just for work, fighting through traffic jams in a car you’re still paying for, in order to get to a job that you hate, but need to pay for the clothes, the car, oh, and the house you leave all day, so that you can afford to live in it? Doesn’t this sound crazy to you? Where is this lifestyle taking you? Towards your dream? If not, how will you ever become truly fulfilled? More importantly, how will you ever get out of this antiquated time for money to trap? That’s if you reached a…

    The Amazon Rainforest Doesn’t Produce 20% of Our Oxygen, Here’s Why

    You may have seen images like this all over social media. The Amazon rainforest is burning, and these images have, understandably, caused international alarm, with media outlets, NGO’s and politicians all weighing in on the conversation about the value of one of the most unique and biodiverse ecosystems on the planet. Amidst all the discussion, one particular claim has stood out: that the forests of the Amazon are the lungs of the Earth, producing 20% of the world’s oxygen. But, that’s not exactly right. Now, the Amazon is the world’s largest remaining rainforest, covering between 6-8 million square km of land, holding millions of species, from plants to insects, birds,…

    eBay Everyday Heroes – Closing the Technology Gap

    There’s a big technology gap that’s happening. If you don’t know how to use technology, this day and age, you will not be successful. I like the laptops that they brought here because I feel like they can help many kids learn more. Our business model is based upon taking the computers and assets from large businesses, completely refurbish it, and then physically deploy it to our schools. eBay literally gave us an opportunity that no other platform would have. We have about eighty to eighty-five percent that are free or reduced lunch. Many students don’t have access to a computer at home. I’ve always believed that kids, all kids,…

    QA Apprenticeships – Maginus case study

    – [Peter] Maginus is a software house, about, uh, 100 employees, 10 million turnover. We need to get bright individuals into the business to keep us going. And, they come from a variety of sources. The obvious one is graduates. But there are other untapped resources out there we wanted to get them.

We wanted to make sure that, um,they were gonna be able to exist, in our, uh, workplace. Consequently we, uh, liaise…

    ECommerce for Moodle, Totara, Joule, Kallidus & Brightspace: Membership Discounts

    In this quick video, I�d like to mention another great feature of Course Merchant: Membership discounts that are based on LMS profile fields. For example, let’s say you had an LMS Profile field called ‘Member Type’. You might set discounts as follows: Full Member=10% discount, Associate Member=5% discount, Student Member=25% discount. Or something like that. If someone is logged in whose LMS profile qualifies for a discount, the prices displayed on store pages are the discounted prices. Where a user is browsing the store in an unlogged in state, then prices will be displayed at full value. This also applies if they are logged in but have no data in…
