March for Science Los Angeles to take place in downtown Los Angeles on April 22nd

Over 50,000 people are anticipated to march from Pershing Square Park to City Hall in support of science

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, March 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The March for Science Los Angeles will take place on April 22, 2017 (Earth Day), beginning at 9:00am at Pershing Square Park in downtown Los Angeles. Marchers will then make their way to City Hall. So far, over 13,000 people have pledged to march, while nearly 50,000 others have expressed their interest in participating. These numbers include scientists, educators, students, advocates, and community leaders. They will unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group to call on policymakers to champion and fund science that upholds the common good and to advocate for evidence-based policies in the public interest at the local, state, and national levels.

The March is one of over 300 independent satellite marches of the national March for Science in Washington, DC, happening the same day. While sharing the broad goals the national March, the March for Science Los Angeles further asserts that the ample and diverse assemblage of scientists in Southern California is an important driver of its economic growth, a protector of its resources, and a boon to the health of its citizens.

The organizers of March for Science Los Angeles are a team of over 50 dedicated volunteers with diverse backgrounds and expertise—from organic chemistry to business management. The organizers cite the increasing mistrust of science, disregard of evidence in decision-making, and emergent lack of transparency in federally-funded research communications as the impetus for planning the March.

"This will very likely be the largest assembly of scientists and science advocates in history. We aim to utilize the momentum of this march to strengthen evidence-based policy decisions," says Alex Bradley, the Lead Organizer of the March for Science Los Angeles and a molecular biologist. "This march will draw out typically introverted, politically averse academics and stakeholders of all kinds to literally shout their support for science and the necessity of its findings in informing policy decisions."

By bringing scientists, advocates, and members of the public together for an interactive event, the March also aims to put real faces and voices to the concern for science-based policymaking. "Showing that members of the scientific community are 'people first, scientists second' will help foster public engagement with science," says Jennifer Wheeler, Program Director of the March.

The Women's March Los Angeles Foundation has endorsed the March for Science Los Angeles. "We are proud to endorse the March for Science. We have seen the power of activating citizens to come forward and stand up for what they believe in and are happy to help with this mission that benefits us all," says Emiliana Guereca, Co-Executive Director of the Women's March Los Angeles Foundation. The WMLA Foundation will provide logistics support for the March for Science Los Angeles. The Women's March brought over 750,000 participants to downtown Los Angeles in January that resulted in a day of positivity, activism, and zero violence.

Other organizations endorsing the March include Earth Day Network, Sigma Xi, 500 Woman Scientists, the Union of Concerned Scientists, the American Association of University Professors, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the American Indian Science and Engineering Society.

Following the March, the organizers plan to host a series of science outreach programs and events–such as campaigns and public workshops–focused on the scientific issues most critical to the health and environment of Southern California.

To maximize a child’s development, genetics provide important insight

GCC logo

In study, children with a particular genetic variation were four times more likely to develop strong attachment to mother after intervention

"A startling finding that changes the way I think about child development … the ladder of social mobility to climb out the hole of inequity for millions of children all over this inequitable world.”

— Dr. Peter A. Singer, CEO, Grand Challenges Canada

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, March 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — A child’s genetic make-up can play a large, hidden role in the success of efforts to maximize his or her development, South African research suggests.

The study, published February 28 in PLoS Medicine and supported by the Government of Canada through Grand Challenges Canada’s Saving Brains program, sheds new light on why some children benefit more than others from interventions and raises complex questions about psychosocial intervention programs in future.

In a study led by Professor Mark Tomlinson of Stellenbosch University, the study followed-up an intervention implemented between 1999 and 2003, in which expectant mothers underwent coaching to improve attachment with their children — attachment being a measure of a child’s psychological security, and predictive of future wellbeing. In the original study, a control group of roughly equal size was composed of expectant mothers who did not receive coaching.

The original study concluded that the intervention had a small-to-moderate effect on mother-child attachment, evaluated once the children reached 18 months of age.

The follow-up study, conducted thirteen years after the intervention, re-examined the original attachment results and revealed something surprising: the intervention had in fact worked well for toddlers who had a particular genetic characteristic.

Conducted in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Reading, University College London, and Western University, the study re-enrolled and conducted genetic tests on 279 of the original 449 children.

220 children had both genetic and attachment data, enabling the investigators to test whether the original attachment outcomes were influenced by their genes.

The researchers factored in whether the child had the short or long form of gene SLC6A4 — the serotonin transporter gene, which is involved in nerve signalling, and which other studies have linked to anxiety, depression and other conditions. Serotonin is popularly thought to contribute to feelings of well-being and happiness.

The attachment of children with the short form of the gene, and whose pregnant mothers were coached, were almost four times more likely to be securely attached to their mothers at 18 months old (84 percent were secure) than children carrying the short form whose mothers did not receive coaching (58 percent were secure).

Meanwhile, children with the long gene were apparently unaffected by their mother’s training or lack thereof: in both cases, the rate of secure attachment was almost identical (70 and 71 percent).

Subject to further validation, says Professor Tomlinson, the insight has “important implications for scientists designing and evaluating interventions to benefit as many people as possible in South Africa and worldwide.”

“Without taking genetics into account, it is possible that other studies have under-estimated the impact of their interventions, as we originally did.”

Says lead author Dr. Barak Morgan of the University of Cape Town: “The immediate significance of this research is the revelation that in principle, and probably in many cases in practice too, the effectiveness of interventions has been mis-measured — under-estimated for genetically susceptible individuals and over-estimated for those who are genetically less susceptible. But even more worrying is the implication that the negative consequences of not receiving an intervention also differ by genotype."

“This is an enormously important insight because, in this case, the subgroup with the short form of the SLC6A4 gene is also the one with the most to lose if not helped.”

“Individuals with the long form of the gene, on the other hand, appear less sensitive and derived little benefit from the same intervention, and little detriment from not getting it.”

Adds Professor Tomlinson: “In the original study, we did not see such a big impact from this intervention because only those with the short gene improved, and this improvement was ‘diluted’ by the large number of children with the long gene who did not improve.”

The researchers caution that, among other limitations, this study involved a relatively small sample and only measured one gene and one outcome (attachment).

Dr. Morgan stressed: “We are certainly not saying that only some people should receive the intervention — those who are ‘susceptible’ to improving from it. There is little scientific justification for this. For example, many children with the non-susceptible long genotype of the SLC6A4 gene may carry the susceptible form of another gene which renders them much more likely to benefit from the same intervention but for a different but equally important outcome.

“Going forward, the implications are therefore two-fold. Firstly, measuring genetic differences allows for proper assessment of the effectiveness or lack of effectiveness of an intervention for a particular outcome in different individuals. Secondly, this information can then be used to find out how to intervene effectively for all — to guide what might be done to improve outcomes for a non-responsive gene-intervention interaction while continuing to optimise outcomes for the responsive one.”

Says Dr. Karlee Silver, Vice President Programs of Grand Challenges Canada: “This work is fundamentally about better understanding the impact of interventions which is an important step forward to creating a world where every child can survive and thrive.”

Says Dr. Peter A. Singer, Chief Executive Officer of Grand Challenges Canada: “This is a startling finding that changes the way I think about child development. Why is that important? Because child development is the ladder of social mobility to climb out the hole of inequity for millions of children all over this inequitable world.”

CCI Innovate Logo

Is it Really Possible to Improve the Way You Solve Problems? Asks CCI Innovate

I was so impressed with the business version of the profile and its innovative 8 step problem solving process that I was determined to offer the benefits of this tool to as many students as possible.”

— Ted Hodge, CEO, CCI Innovate

ORANGEVILLE, ONTARIO, CANADA, March 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Studies show that despite a worldwide demand for creativity and creative thinking, today’s students are not prepared to enter a workplace that requires inventive thinking.

As businesses continue to adapt to the ever-increasing, globally competitive world, so too do the requirements for students to develop their innovation skills and problem solving abilities. CCI Innovate has today launched a student version of the powerful Basadur Profile tool currently used by over 531 leading business organizations around the world. This scientifically proven profile is now available to provide students with an understanding of how they think and how they solve problems. In addition, it helps them to understand how others around them think.
The profile has been designed to help an individual student, team or work-group understand how to increase their creativity and innovation.

The terms “creative” or “innovative” are often used to describe people who are adventurous and full of ideas. How often do we say the same thing about ourselves? The CCI Innovate profile is now a powerful new tool to assist parents, guidance counsellors and students as they consider future educational options and career choices. The profile offers both secondary and post secondary students instant results as well as helpful ways for them to understand their creative potential.

CCI Innovate has made this profile available to students on line at www.cci-innovate.com.

"I was so impressed with the business version of the profile and its innovative 8 step problem solving process that I was determined to offer the benefits of this tool to as many students as possible. Applying the concepts and results from this tool makes so much sense for students who are continuously immersed in situations that require creative and innovative thinking. The profile is fast and easy to complete and provides you with instant and clear results.” Ted Hodge CEO, CCI Innovate

Empowered Woman of the Month Barbara Anne Rose of Goddess of the Rose to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

Taking the time to explore our sexuality and sensuality is a path to empowerment.”

— Barbara Anne Rose

NEWARK, DELAWARE, USA, March 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — CUTV News today announced Barbara Anne Rose has been named its Empowered Woman of the Month for March. CUTV News Radio will feature Barbara in an interview with Doug Llewelyn every Friday from March 3rd to March 24th at 2pm EST.

“To be empowered is to embrace the power within you as a woman: your creative energy,” says Rose. “Too many women give up this power. When a woman embraces her creative energy, she emanates a vibration that she is strong and not afraid to shine her light.”

Rose is a licensed massage therapist and founder of Goddess of the Rose, where she offers Divine Touch Massage to help women, men, and couples gain a better understanding of how sexuality, sensuality and spirituality are all connected.

“Taking the time to explore our sexuality and sensuality is a path to empowerment,” says Rose. “When your senses are activated by Divine Touch, it empowers you to go about your life in a new way with different choices.”

Where the world looks at sexuality one way, Divine Touch looks at sexuality through a spiritual lens.

Rose says the Divine Touch massage draws on concepts similar to Tantra; all parts of the body are sensual in nature and will respond favorably to touch. Using various massage techniques, Rose can help you transcend to a more meaningful state of being.

“Many seek something deeper with a more meaningful connection, and I’ve always felt that my work is deeper,” says Rose. “It’s hard to love yourself if you can’t feel yourself from the inside out. When we see ourselves from a deeper place, we see life from a deeper place.”

Rose offers weekend retreats with classes on spiritual sensual massage and how to give and receive. She also offers individual sessions with Divine Touch.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Sahara Group Unveils #NigeriaStartsWithMe Campaign to Boost SDGs

The creativity, capacity, tenacity and resilience of Nigerian youths can make a difference in enhancing development across the nation if adequately harnessed.

the #NigeriaStartsWithMe initiative seeks to rally youths to own major stakes in the transformation of Nigeria by coming up with practical ideas that key into the 17 SDGs”

— Tonye Cole, Executive Director & Co-Founder, Sahara Group

ABUJA, FCT, NIGERIA, March 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The creativity, capacity, tenacity and resilience of Nigerian youths can make a difference in enhancing development across the nation if adequately harnessed, Tonye Cole, Executive Director and Co-Founder Sahara Group has said.

Cole made the above submission whilst speaking to State House Correspondents in Abuja on Sahara’s new initiative tagged #NigeriaStartsWithMe.

According to Cole, the #NigeriaStartsWithMe initiative seeks to rally young people to own major stakes in the transformation of Nigeria by coming up with practical ideas that key into the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

He explained that the campaign would challenge and inspire young people to resist activities that relegate them to being mere stooges for selfish individuals/organisations or being hired to perpetrate sundry illegal activities.

“It is designed to create a shift in the nature of ongoing conversation about Nigeria from the clutch of social media trolls to practical solutions that would ignite creativity, innovation and a sense of patriotism in Nigerian youths,” he stated.

Cole urged Nigerian youths across the globe to amplify their voices by contributing to the conversation #NigeriaStartsWithMe: How I can help transform Nigeria, using the 17 SDGs as reference point.

“Nigerian youths sometimes spend time on the Social Media to give traction to issues that stoke the embers of hatred and division. At Sahara, we believe that the creative energies of our youths should be channeled into causes that can transform Nigeria. We are calling on Nigerian youths all over the world to make a difference by contributing to the conversation on Twitter using the #NigeriaStartsWithMe.”

Cole said youths desiring to contribute more than “140 characters” that Twitter allows can visit the company’s website, www.sahara-group.com to send a 150-word article on the subject. “We earnestly believe the project would reduce anti-Nigeria narrative, promote the adoption of creative developmental projects and encourage an unwavering #NigeriaStartsWithMe disposition amongst more youths.”

Although the initiative has been designed to run all through the month of March 2017 only, Sahara Group hopes that it would inspire a sustained impact on "young Nigerians and all Nigerians across the globe."
At the end of the project, a compilation of the contributions will be published and distributed to the Presidency/MDAs/Global Development Agencies, the academia, Media and other stakeholders. The contributions will also be circulated and shared across various online portals to elicit positive conversations and actions that will sustain ongoing initiatives aimed at transforming Nigeria.

Sahara Group has over the years continued to execute that empower young people to reach for their dreams. Last year, Sahara Foundation partnered with ace Movie Producer, Kunle Afolayan to discover young film makers that will help amplify the Nigerian story of creativity and resilience through the experience of entrepreneurs. The project received over 150 entries, with the overall winner currently undergoing a 6-month mentorship programme with Kunle Afolayan.

Why Education in Homeland Security is Important

High demand for capable professionals

In 2017, the Department of Homeland Security has over 240,000 positions and is always looking to hire for more.”

— US Department of Homeland Security

ROSSLYN, ARLINGTON, UNITED STATES, March 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — University of Management and Technology (UMT)

Individuals looking for a rewarding profession that offers job security, good compensation and the ability to serve society should seriously consider working in the Homeland Security profession. It continues to be one of the fastest growing professions in the country and all indications point to a continuing trend. Positions in Homeland Security and Emergency Management are among the most secure and lucrative of government jobs.

In 2017, the Department of Homeland Security has over 240,000 positions and is always looking to hire for more. Additionally, many other federal, state, and local government agencies are hiring for positions in Homeland Security and Emergency Management as well as numerous private and non-profit organizations. Even during the global economic recession of the late 1980s, many jurisdictions were reluctant to reduce positions in Homeland Security and these positions actually increased in many places.

Salaries for homeland security positions geared toward educated practitioners can be substantial. The positions vary significantly. The most attractive include emergency management, anti-terrorism, emergency response, disaster recovery, threat mitigation, physical security, border protection, cyber investigations, weapons of mass destruction training, weapons proliferation, international relations, criminal investigations, forensics, interrogation, and intelligence.

According to US Department of Homeland Security data, typical homeland security salaries offered in 2017 for positions of responsibility at USDH:

• USDH Special Agent, $123,544
• Program Analyst, $76,358
• Supervisor, $101,627
• Director, $145,581
• Border Patrol Agent, $79,513
• Policy Analyst, $79,982
• Contract Specialist, $86,718

Prior experience is an important consideration in hiring professionals. But frequently applicants with pertinent education and experience in Homeland Security have an edge in securing a position. That is why it can be important to have a relevant degree.

Given the current Global War on Terrorism (GWOT), homeland security practitioners play an important role within our society. They are responsible for the safety and security of our citizens and our way of life and are therefore very much in high demand. Positions in Homeland Security are highly rewarding personally, given their significance. With technology continually evolving, you can count on positions in Homeland Security being modified significantly to keep up with the times. Having a bachelor’s or master’s degree in Homeland Security can put you on the cutting edge in this field.

About UMT: University of Management and Technology (UMT) is an accredited university located in Arlington VA. Since 1998, UMT has built a strong global higher learning community through its online and distance education. Geographical boundaries do not limit UMT and its students who reside in 50 states, the District of Columbia, 4 US territories in the United States, and in 77 countries worldwide.

Firefallmedia Goes Global

Due out in June, a revolution in educational thinking

design for a logo

firefallmedia imprint

Northern Virginia Publisher reaches for an international audience with its "Digital Natives"

We are committed to a new American idiom, and see our company as the penthouse of the imagination.”

— Robinson Joyce, Managing Director

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, March 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — With rebels and high Tories from the UK, digital natives in the US, and satiric political poetry, road trip novels, and fashion illustrators in the company catalog, firefallmedia books are now distributed worldwide. As the publisher's distributors extend their reach worldwide, they take Firefall along for the ride, from New Zealand to Germany to Russia, in English only so far. Coordinating for simultaneous release can get tricky though. To be eligible for awards in the UK, for example, the book generally has to be published there first. Since London is at least 5 hours ahead of Washington, technically simultaneous publication means London first, which allows Firefall books to qualify for UK awards. The Gladstones and the Dewars are considerations in this regard, as their manuscripts also originated in the U.K. Firefallmedia's next release, Digital Natives: mastering our world, authored by Elihu Blotnick, advocates social change through visual learning in a program called Metech.US. The 64 page book is due out in June. The company has several novels in its editorial channels with Washington as the prime setting; no release dates are yet set. Meanwhile, the Last Living Master, Mystery of the Mermaid, and A Slap on Three Cheeks lead the Firefall List. On the Crest of Time, Don't Drink the Eye Drops, and Adam & Yves, books with international settings and input, are scheduled for 2018 in the U.K. The company has offices in San Francisco, Paris, Southerness (Scotland), Lido Beach, New York, and Alexandria Virginia. In spite of Firefallmedia's new global orientation, "We are committed to a new American idiom, and see our company as the penthouse of the imagination," says Robinson Joyce, the managing director, who also believes that English, as a global language, will continue to extend its reach. The company has several imprints and other companies within its umbrella structure: 1Across (a solutions company), SciFun.US (a transformation company), and MeTech.US (a development company).
