Sweepstakes Features Tyler Goodson and Andre Reed

To offer a subscription-based platform now when organizations need new donors is an affordable way to increase engagement. This is our way to provide fundraising in an easy, fun, and entertaining way.”

— Joe Castle, Founder of the Giving Project

BUFFALO, NY, UNITED STATES, November 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Giving Project launched its new website today, as well as a new sweepstakes campaign with college football star Tyler Goodson.

The philanthropy platform caters to the local community so donors, sponsors, and organizations can see and embrace the results they helped create.

Visitors to the GivingProject.com can now take advantage of a subscription-based model that Insight Communications, a woman-owned business, developed. The new platform will enable small, nonprofit organizations to fundraise quickly, efficiently, and without much overhead cost. In addition, users can set their campaigns up independently, and the website is more user-friendly overall.

Joe Castle, Founder of the Giving Project, is excited to bring this alternative to the market and says, “We have always wanted to do good for the community, and to offer a subscription-based platform at this time when organizations need new donors, provides an affordable and proven way to increase engagement.

The current sweepstakes allow people to opt-in for the chance to win a VIP dinner with Iowa Hawkeyes running back Tyler Goodson, as well as a signed Goodson jersey and signed custom sneakers that he wore in a game.

A portion of the proceeds from the campaign will go to buying books for the local Iowa City Boys and Girls Club (via the Andre Reed Foundation/Read with Reed Foundation).

The next campaign through The Giving Project is with Pro Football Hall of Famer and former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Andre Reed. The winner of that campaign will get to enjoy a VIP dinner with Reed, a limo ride, and tailgate with Reed and two of the CBS Big Brother castmates before the December 6 Monday Night football game in Buffalo.

About The Giving Project
The Giving Project was founded by Joseph Castle in 2017 to help charities in local communities raise awareness through incentivised charitable giving. The organization works with charities, businesses, and sponsors in order to create a movement of giving through sweepstakes, events, and recognition. Learn more at givingproject.com.

Jamie Simkins is looking to change the narrative on heartbreak with her courses and trainings focused on self-care and empowerment

I'm on a mission to disrupt how we approach heartbreak.”

— Jamie Simkins

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, November 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — December 11 might not have much meaning to most people. But for relationship coach and therapist Jamie Simkins, it’s one of the most important dates on her calendar, because December 11 is the most popular day of the year for breakups. And while this date causes a lot of heartache worldwide, Simkins is on a mission to change the way people think about heartbreak on December 11 and every other day of the year.

Simkins sees herself as the official heartbreak disruptor and has made it her life’s work through her business My Breakup Coaching. Through her Breakup 911 training and Breakup Shakeup course, Simkins helps women rescue their hearts while finding the support they need to detox from relationships, care for themselves, and come out on the other end empowered and in love with their lives. She is a licensed therapist with a master’s in clinical psychology who uses her training, scientific studies and research, and her own experiences with heartbreak to inform programs.

Simkins created her coaching and training programs after seeing how breakups and the ensuing heartache were having a devastating effect on women around her, herself included. With this in mind, she set out to disrupt how people think about heartache, especially women, and help them realize that there is an amazing, meaningful life waiting on the other side of this trying time.

"I'm on a mission to disrupt how we approach heartbreak," said Simkins. "Instead of seeing it as something debilitating, I want to show women they are worthy of love from themselves and others, and there is an incredible life ahead of them. I also never want someone to feel alone during such a trying time. My coaching and training programs give women the tools they need to successfully navigate a breakup and empower them to care for themselves, all while connecting them to me and others who may have been through a similar experience."

Ahead of the biggest breakup day of the year, Simkins’ latest Breakup Shakeup course begins on December 9. Those interested in attending the course can register at https://breakup911.lpages.co/the-breakup-shakeup/.

Welcoming an Accessible, Proactive Education System Designed to Meet Future Workforce Development Needs

Dr Sunday Olukoju

Addressing Barriers and Issues for Further Education in Social and Community Services Through Online Offerings

As a change agent organization, our graduates are not only market-ready but are also change agents in the community. They are trained to change their world for good!”

— Dr. Sunday Olujoku

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA, November 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the area of mental health, it is important to explain the context. The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) in their July 2021 fast facts informed Canadians that “everyone has mental health and will experience challenges regarding their mental well-being”, although “not everyone will experience a mental illness”. However, CMHA also reveals that “mental illness indirectly affects all Canadians at some time either through their own experience, or that of a family member, friend or colleague”, and that “in any given year, 1 in 5 people in Canada will personally experience a mental health problem or illness.” In fact, “by age 40, about 50% of the population will have or have had a mental illness.” While CMHA identifies “a complex interplay of genetic, biological, personality and environmental factors” as the cause of mental illnesses, it also discloses that “the economic cost of mental illnesses to the Canadian healthcare and social support system was projected as $79.9 billion for the year 2021”, among others.

The above fast facts call for action, and this is especially true now that “one-third of Canadians aged 15 or older who report having a need for mental health care say those needs were not fully met” according to CMHA. The urgent need for a timely intervention to fill a precarious gap in the mental health and wellness area has led to the emergence of LINKS Institute, a further education institution whose curriculum is fully focused on this issue. In a fast-paced world of never-ending activities and interactions powered by social media, many people are yearning for emotional stability and mental equilibrium in their day-to-day expectations, roles, and responsibilities. More than ever before, many people are forced to multi-task today, given their intersecting programs, recreational, work and family schedules, as well as survival needs. It has therefore become necessary to train support and crisis workers in mental health and harm reduction, and whose major role would be to help the increasing number of those prone to mental health issues.

As a new institution based in Brandon Manitoba, LINKS Institute’s easy accessibility through program delivery that is fully online is one great advantage that can accelerate training of both working adults and high school graduates in rural areas or cities across Canada. Working and studying at the same time becomes easy. Learning via an online platform from the comfort of one’s home eliminates the trouble of commuting, parking, and/or tight time scheduling that could create lateness or anxiety. The advantage of a fully online program delivery also includes a relatively low cost, despite being a highly effective, high-quality program. Completing a highly needed certificate program via an online platform further protects students from COVID-19, that is transmittable via physical proximity. It is also pertinent to mention that LINKS Institute’s programs expose students to current practices as well as relevant and recent theories in the field of psychosocial mental healthcare, harm reduction and prevention.

LINKS Institute emphasizes a delivery approach that places high premium on good interaction of hands-on skills with deep industry experience. It adopts a balanced approach that connects the head, the heart, and the hand of students in the learning process. The curriculum is comprehensive and student-centered. It is also job-market relevant as it addresses the shortage earlier identified by the CMHA. Seasoned practitioners who are highly trained as qualified instructors with PhDs and master’s degree in relevant fields have successfully positioned LINKS Institute as a further education institution with a difference – dynamic, relevant, and current in today’s challenges, and completely future-ready in training mental health workers of repute.

Furthermore, LINKS Institute has a reputation for a rigorous, intentionally planned short but intensive duration suitable for working adults and/or newcomers looking to acquire a job-ready certificate in mental health. What’s more, this program leads to jobs that are in high demand across the nation. Acquiring a certificate in mental health or harm reduction within six months of intensive training has now become achievable through LINKS Institute’s programming. Flexibility through on-going cohort intake guarantees a greater leverage for prospective students to plan and adjust their priorities without having to wait for a whole year to start school. The cohort approach also ensures the high frequency of interaction of a small class size, the fair share of student to instructor ratio that enables a more one-on-one student-instructor connection. Students are not treated as figures but known by their first names, and this approach guarantees a deeply enriching learning experience.

While Canada has no accrediting body for workers in social and community services, the Manitoba government is the constituted authority that recognizes and authenticates vocational institutions in Manitoba. LINKS Institute is a registered private vocational institution. LINKS Institute is one of the very few institutions in Canada offering a diploma program in mental wellness and harm reduction. It is also one of the few further education institutions offering all its approved programs online. LINKS Institute has become a game-changer as students now have the best option possible. In addition to having a strong, nimble, and creative leadership, LINKS Institute’s instructors are highly trained, patient, reasonable, student-centered, and completely selfless in ensuring that their students flourish. As a change agent organization, our graduates are not only market-ready but are also change agents in the community. They are trained to change their world for good!

Equipping and empowering support workers in the areas of mental health and harm reduction will go a long way in reversing the tide of the rising “economic cost of mental illnesses to the Canadian healthcare and social support system”. While it could be more preventative than curative, the goal of training more support workers in this area cannot be overemphasized. LINKS Institute has emerged on the scene and is here to continue making good things happen in training and equipping helping professionals whose main priority is to help Canadians who are struggling to overcome their challenges and become productive members of society.

The first printing press employed in North America? Mexico City bears this honor as well, with Juan Pablos commencing work in 1539.

Moving into the 20th century, Mexican citizens have advanced the sciences in every field. A very short sample of these pioneers might include:

• Guillermo González Camarena – early color television transmission
• Luis Miramontes – co-inventor of a safe contraceptive pill
• Manuel González Flores – earthquake safe “control pilings” for buildings
• Mario J. Molina – Nobel Prize laureate in chemistry
• Arturo Rosenblueth – cybernetics study pioneer
• Guillermo Haro Barraza – co-discoverer of Herbig–Haro celestial objects

Mexico has rapidly become a global force in high tech education. Mexico is home to some of the most prestigious medical schools in the world. Many U.S. doctors have trained in Mexico, notably in Guadalajara. And many doctors from around the globe continue to choose Mexican institutions for their ongoing training.

Mexico is home to some of the newest and most advanced educational institutions in the world. Like the UAE, China and other countries, the government of Mexico has made a conscious choice to invest in educational infrastructure.

The Fermatta Music University Center

The Fermatta Music University Center (Centro Universitario de Música Fermatta), Latin America’s first contemporary music college, is now the largest and most prestigious institution of its kind. With campuses in Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey and Querétaro, the Fermatta Music University Center offers three, four-year Bachelor's Degree programs, in addition to two, two-year Master's Degree programs, all fully accredited by the Secretariat of Public Education in Mexico.

Now celebrating its 27th year, Fermatta Music University Center has graduated some of Latin America’s biggest music superstars, who have accumulated awards including more than 80 Grammys, Latin Grammys, Oscars and Cannes Film Festival Awards.

The academic programs at Fermatta Music University Center are considered some of the most demanding, advanced and technologically up-to-date in the entertainment field today.

Regardless of a student’s desired field of specialization within the music business, the critical, fundamental skills of the trade are emphasized. All graduates are expected to achieve proficiency in sight reading, ear training, instrument performance, composition, sound engineering, music production and music business fundamentals. At Fermatta, mastery of these skills is considered mandatory, not merely preferential for graduation.

Programs

The Fermatta Music University Center offers 3 Bachelor’s Degree and 2 Master’s Degree programs. They are the Bachelor's in Sound Engineering and Music Production, Bachelor’s in Contemporary Music Composition and the Bachelor’s in Music Performance. For their part, the Master's programs that are available are the Master's in Audio and Post-Production Design for Film and Television, and the Master's in Entertainment Business.

The study programs are designed to meet the professional requirements of anyone who wants to join the music industry. The evolution of the media and entertainment industries have made it necessary for professionals to be prepared to operate in a wide range. Fermatta's programs address these aspects, providing its graduates with the tools they need to lead a successful working life.

Today, a musician who does not master the techniques of composition, the rudiments necessary to play his instrument and the skills necessary to produce and distribute his work independently, is doomed to failure. For this reason, Fermatta's programs offer comprehensive training that allows its graduates to easily place themselves in any of the branches of the music and entertainment industry. For this reason, the school is distinguished from those institutes that focus on the over-specialization of their students in only one of these aspects.

Master Class Series

The Master Class Series program aims to place students in direct contact with professionals in the music and entertainment industry. To achieve this, the university organizes master classes that are taught by prominent musicians, engineers, producers and executives of the industry. In this way, students learn first-hand about the ideas, experiences and expectations of the people who pull the strings of today’s industry.

Centro Universitario de Música Fermatta

El Centro Universitario de Música Fermatta es una universidad mexicana especializada en la formación de profesionales preparados para desempeñarse en la industria del entretenimiento.

Historia

El Centro Universitario de Música Fermatta fue fundada a principios de la década de los noventa del siglo pasado con la finalidad de cubrir un espacio formativo que las escuelas de instrucción musical tradicionales descuidaron: la formación en música contemporánea. A diferencia de otros institutos, Fermatta se especializa en formar profesionales que puedan incorporarse a la industria de la música y el entretenimiento, ampliando el rango de oportunidades laborales para sus estudiantes en el entorno nacional e internacional.

Desde sus primeros años, la escuela se ha preocupado por brindar a sus alumnos los conocimientos y habilidades que se requieren para lograr un desempeño destacado en diferentes ámbitos profesionales, desde la composición y la ejecución en proyectos artísticos innovadores, hasta la gestión de negocios relacionados con los medios y el entretenimiento. De esta forma, los programas de estudio que se han desarrollado, se concentran en los aspectos preponderantes que demanda la industria, sin descuidar los fundamentos básicos de una formación musical integral.

Como pionera en la enseñanza de la música contemporánea, uno de los primeros reconocimientos que recibió Fermatta fue la certificación que otorga la Secretaría de Educación Pública del gobierno mexicano. Este reconocimiento oficial la convirtió en la primera escuela capacitada para brindar estudios de grado en las áreas de composición, ejecución e ingeniería con orientación a la música contemporánea, colocándose a la altura de institutos educativos internacionales que reconocen la importancia que tiene la vinculación educativa con los ámbitos laborales.

Durante la primera década del presente siglo, el prestigio de la universidad se extendió a lo largo de la región latinoamericana gracias a la exposición y el éxito comercial que lograron algunos de sus egresados. La lista de artistas que han salido de las aulas de Fermatta incluye a Natalia Lafourcade, Joselo Rangel de Café Tacvba, Mauricio Clavería de La Ley, Pablo Hurtado de Camila y Ximena Sariñana, entre muchos otros. En conjunto, los graduados de esta institución han sido reconocidos con cientos de premios internacionales como los Grammy, los Oscars y los que otorga el Festival de Cannes.

En la actualidad, Fermatta cuenta con instalaciones en la Ciudad de México, Guadalajara, Monterrey y Querétaro. Además, la institución tiene proyectado abrir un nuevo plantel en las ciudades de Puebla para ampliar la cobertura de sus servicios en el territorio nacional.

Programas

El Centro Universitario de Música Fermatta ofrece 3 programas de grado y 2 de posgrado. Para los alumnos interesados en comenzar una carrera en la industria de la música y el entretenimiento, la escuela ofrece la Licenciatura en Composición, la Licenciatura en Ejecución y la Licenciatura en Ingeniería y Producción Musical. Por su parte, los programas de maestría que están disponibles son la Maestría en Diseño de Audio y Postproducción para Cine y Televisión, y la Maestría en Negocios del Entretenimiento.

Los programas de estudio están diseñados para cubrir los requerimientos profesionales que necesita cualquier persona que quiera incorporarse a la industria de la música. La evolución de los medios y el entretenimiento ha hecho necesario que los profesionales estén preparados para desenvolverse en un amplio abanico de opciones laborales, por lo que es indispensable conseguir una formación integral. En este sentido, los programas de Fermatta atienden estos aspectos, dotando a sus egresados con las herramientas que necesitan para llevar una vida laboral exitosa.

En la actualidad, un músico que no domina las técnicas propias de la composición, los rudimentos necesarios para ejecutar su instrumento y las habilidades indispensables para producir y distribuir su trabajo de forma independiente, está condenado al fracaso. Por ello, los programas de Fermatta ofrecen una formación integral que permite a sus egresados colocarse sin dificultades en cualquiera de las ramas de la industria de la música y el entretenimiento. Por lo mismo, la escuela se distingue de aquellos centros e institutos que se concentran en la sobre-especialización de sus alumnos en solo uno de estos aspectos.

Judge Malcolm Simmons presents the Criminal Courts Bench Book to the Maldives Judiciary

Judge Malcolm Simmons presents new Criminal Courts Bench Book”

— Edward Montague Associates

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM, November 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Judge Malcolm Simmons meets with legal advisers of the Maldives Department of Judicial Administration to discuss the draft Criminal Courts Bench Book.

The Bench Book was drafted by Judge Simmons with contributions from law students of the University of Exeter, United Kingdom who undertook research and provided examples from international case law giving context to various, innovative, provisions of the Maldives Criminal Procedure Code.

During the briefing, Judge Simmons explained how the Bench Book will assist judges and magistrates in the Maldives criminal courts to interpret and apply the criminal procedural rules. The bench book provides explanations and examples for judges hearing complex criminal cases and includes, for example, suggestions on how judges should facilitate children and vulnerable adults and victims of sexual and gender-based violence when giving evidence; the process to be adopted when exercising judicial discretion; admissibility of evidence; legal reasoning and judgment writing. The Bench Book is the most comprehensive tool available to judges to assist them in the exercise of their judicial function. The Bench Book will be available online to all judges and magistrates and will be regularly updated by a committee established by the Department of Judicial Administration. Superior courts judges will be invited to contribute to the Bench Book that will contain decisions of Maldives appellate courts, practice directions, etc.

Judge Malcolm Simmons: “The bench can be a lonely place for judges. Judges are often required to make quick decisions in often complex situations. Judges sitting in small island communities do not often have the opportunity to meet regularly with judicial colleagues. The Bench Book will provide judges with an invaluable resource that will assist them in understanding and applying often complex legal provisions. The Bench Book is a ‘living tool’ that will evolve on a daily basis. It is critical that it is regularly updated.”

The Criminal Courts Bench Book will be accompanied by a Sexual and Gender-Based Violence Bench Book and a Handbook for Judges on Legal Reasoning and Judgment Writing that have also been drafted by Judge Malcolm Simmons.

Asked about the contribution from students at the University of Exeter, Judge Simmons stated “They were an extremely talented group of individuals who made an invaluable contribution to this project.”

Malcolm Simmons served as an international judge from 2004 to 2017 hearing war crime and serious and organised crime cases including murder, serious sexual offences, drug trafficking and complex financial crime. He served as President of EU International Judges from 2014 to 2017. He is particularly well-known for his judicial reform work.
