Digitization: What Is Political Media Literacy

Politics

Questions about political media competence are becoming increasingly important.

Digitization as a methodological and content-related challenge for critical political education

Digitization must be designed as a major social transformation. Within this framework, there are numerous opportunities for political education to open up new perspectives through offers to increase political media competence.

It is important to take up current developments for and with educators and participants in educational offers. Educators and participants need to discuss them and make them understandable with regard to their importance for democratic processes. In terms of a democratic community, it is important that as many people as possible.

People can participate in shaping this transformation and be able to recognize and evaluate the relevance of emerging questions to their own lives. It is not just about imparting knowledge and skills that enable participation. It is also in particular about raising awareness of structural exclusion mechanisms and discrimination in order to overcome them in the long term and sustainably.

You can impart political knowledge through visualization using images.

Political education with digital media

For political educators and teachers, the progressive digitization of society means a change in their canon of methods and the basic setting of educational situations. Digital media are not only used privately but also in learning contexts. The learners are also confronted with settings that did not exist just a few years ago. While this is apparently self-evident and therefore supposedly easier for young learners, people who have been involved in educational systems for a longer period of time are faced with new challenges. In summary, both teaching and learning habits and needs are changing overall.

Politics-related media literacy

Formal and informal politics, explicitly the different components and phases of political processes, have also changed significantly in the course of digitization. Numerous digital elements have found their way into the work of parties, associations and initiatives. According to studies, informal digital engagement is becoming more and more important without completely replacing other forms of political participation. Digital media enable a high degree of “simultaneity” of the most diverse information and formats. In addition, it leads to an amount of data that you cannot record in its entirety.

Government Websites Still Need to Use SEO Strategies

General

Search engines favor government websites because of their authoritative nature, while offering the most useful and reliable answers to important search queries. However, the right government website that provides the definitive answers could still rank low. That is if the site’s web pages are not enhanced with SEO elements that can bring it to the top pages of search engine page results (SERPs).

Unlike commercial, personal and social websites, government sites are not indexed and ranked by search engines as responses to queries about products, brands, lifestyles, remedies and similar topics. More often than not, government websites provide information needed not only by the local general public but specifically by professionals, specialists and researchers coming from other geographical locations.

Yet most government web pages have little visibility or even no visibility at all, if web administrators and content creators think SEO is just for marketing and selling purposes. The thing is, as a government website, you can help search engines like Google, effectively crawl and index pages that provide the best answers. While it benefits a government website to have higher SERP ranking, it also improves the site’s ability to provide useful information as a service to those who need them the most.

Essential Features of a Functional Government Website

It’s essential therefore to produce high-quality content that presents consistent information contributed by an authority on the subject matter.

Web pages and their content must be consistent and easy to navigate. The theme and design used should be browser-friendly regardless of the type of device used by a browser-user. The elements of a page can easily adjust to the size of the device screen as a way to create a satisfactory user experience for all types of search engine users.

Keyword Research is Still Important

Keyword research still reigns supreme since the only way to lead search engines to a site’s data is through the keywords appearing in the content of web pages. Keywords must include the specific geographic location in which a government exists and what most people want to know about your geographic location: e.g. travel advisories, vacation destinations, employment or business opportunities, schools, cost of living, real estate properties and other topics of particular interest to most people.

Keyword research used to be regarded as highly technical and something that if performed by a non-techie individual cannot be readily deemed as search engine responsive. Nowadays, however, there are online tools designed to help those with fewer experience or knowhow about keyword research. Use an online tool to rank check the keywords identified as the most potential search words or phrases that visitors will use to reach one’s government website.

Do On-Page and Off-Page Optimization

Once the keywords or phrases have been identified and ascertained, it is best to ensure on-page optimization. This technical aspect is not as difficult to accomplish because it’s only a matter of making sure the high-ranking keywords constantly appear in the site’s web pages, either as headings, titles or sub captions.

Off-page optimization, on the other hand, involves exactly what the process means — optimize using other web pages by linking content to internal pages of the government website; or to quality external content of other authoritative sites. .

It’s also important to review and edit the content for information updates to keep the site highly useful to readers. Make every visit a satisfactory experience for readers by using only words that are easily understood by the general public, and not to impress professionals and experts.

TikTok Is Becoming Political

Social Media

TikTok

 

Is TikTok suitable as a political medium? Political editor Jarne van der Poel talks about it with Emmelie Valkenburgh van @groenlinksoptiktok and Sanne Kruikemeier, assistant professor of political communication.

With a week to go until the elections, there is a lot of campaigning going on. Due to the coronavirus, the candidates cannot fly on the street and so the attention is more than ever on social media. Several political parties have therefore ventured into the relatively new medium TikTok (politicians can click here to boost their presence on TikTok as well). The VVD and GroenLinks – their accounts together @vvdoptiktok and called @groenlinksoptiktok – are now the biggest players there with 36 thousand and 24 thousand followers respectively.

According to Emerce, a total of 4.5 million Dutch people use the app, mainly people in their twenties and teenagers. TikTok is known for short and often musical videos. Playback or imitation of other videos is encouraged, creating viral trends.

An example of this is the trend where users are to the rhythm of Where Is The Love? of The Black Eyed Peas hopping around the room, accompanied by witty lyrics (‘on the way to a break after 10 minutes of studying’ or ‘subserviating the room if you have to do the dishes). Political parties do not want to be left behind: VVD MP Martin Wörsdörfer (‘on the way to a new debate’) and GroenLinks leader Jesse Klaver (‘on the way to our first post on TikTok’) jumped rhythmically through the House of Representatives building.

Commentators immediately talked about it. In De Nieuws BV, campaign strategist Anne Stokvis said that Jesse Klaver is missing out here. She wondered what exactly he has to look for on TikTok, and felt that he underestimated the target group. ‘Toe-curling and embarrassing’ was the verdict at Editie NL. “If you as an older man or woman are going to do a dance for young people of 15 or 16 years, then you miss the mark,” one analyst scoffed.

Positive influence underestimated

The statements in the media fit into a broader trend in which social media is portrayed in a bad light. The public discourse on social media is defined by discussions about damnation, relocation, invasion of privacy, and the spread of fake news. These concerns are entirely justified, but the balance is sometimes lost.

It becomes painfully clear that the – somewhat older – commentators on television do not fully understand the value of a social medium like TikTok. In addition to fun trends, it is also a place for political activism, education and commentary. “During the U.S. elections, TikTok seems to have had an encouraging influence on young people,” says Sanne Kruikemeier, a lecturer at the University of Amsterdam who has conducted research on online political communication and its effect on citizens’ political engagement.

‘A bit of Klaver and a bit of Emmelie’

Teens and young adults are increasingly using TikTok to express their opinions and concerns about politics. Emmelie Valkenburgh also sees this. She is an online content creator and manages the TikTok account of GroenLinks. “A bit of Clover and a bit of Emmelie,” the caption of the account reads. “Young people are also on TikTok, because they have an opinion about political and social issues and want to get involved,” she says. In the comments below her videos, young users start discussions on topics such as the climate or the housing market.

Content and personal

“Young political involvement is further encouraged by social media making politics more accessible,” kruikemeier says. “Many young people find politics abstract or boring. Research shows that social media makes politics more accessible by giving it a face and a voice.”

Emmelie also tries to do this: “Our social media are substantive, but I also want to show the personal sides of our leader.” An example of this is the popular TikTok video “Cooking with Klaaf”, in which Jesse Klaver cooks vegetarian boemboe bali. On the other side of the political spectrum, the VVD shared on TikTok the morning routine of MP Dennis Wiersma.

Emmelie rejects the suggestion that these kinds of videos are at the expense of the content. GroenLinks’ TikTok account also contains excerpts from debates and speeches and videos in which she films herself and explains what the party’s plans are. And yes, “a minute remains a minute,” she admits, but you can also make a substantive point in 60 seconds. It helps the 27-year-old that she herself belongs to the young target group: “I think I have more insight into it, that I can translate our policy intentions well into ‘the language’ of TikTok and that I know how the app works.”

New target group

Ultimately, the app, which is now used more often by young people than Facebook, is mainly a way to reach a new target group during campaign time. “I actually think that political parties are always looking for new ways to reach citizens. Instagram is mainly millennials and with TikTok you really reach a new, younger target group,” says Kruikemeier. “We think it’s important to reach as many people as possible,” Emmelie agrees. “There is a large group on TikTok that may not get politics on board with the regular news. We take up the challenge of doing that through this route.”

‘In a democracy it is not only important to vote, but also to participate’

“You can try to appeal to a new target group,” said political scientist Peter van der Heide at EditieNL, “but with TikTok that makes no sense, because that target group is not even allowed to vote.” Sanne Kruikemeier can count on a slight surprise at this statement: “For me personally, that is a bit of a limited view of politics. In a democracy, it is not only important to vote, but also to participate, for example. I think it would be useful to involve young people under the age of 18 as well. Political parties are already doing this, for example through their youth departments.”

Small effect on voice choice

Despite all the positive effects on the political involvement of young people, Kruikemeier expects that the final effect on the choice of the vote is small. “We see in research that successful social media campaigns can lead to preferential votes for a particular candidate, but those are small effects.” She also emphasizes that social media is often used by people who are probably already politically involved and are already voting anyway.

In addition, the TikTok algorithm chooses videos that match the user’s interests and offers them on a silver platter: the “For You” page. So there is a good chance that Emmelie’s videos will end up with people who already think the same way. Still, that’s not a problem: “The goal isn’t necessarily to convince people of other political persuasions, but rather to reach young people in general,” she says.

‘Young people are also on TikTok to talk about politics’

In any case, more attention to the positive effects of social media would not be out of place in the public debate. “Older journalists didn’t think our TikTok was a good idea,” Emmelie laughs, “but I think they underestimate young people because they’re also on TikTok to talk about politics.”

Sanne Kruikemeier also thinks that the positive function of social media such as TikTok remains underexposed: “Young people spend a large part of their day on social media. We often talk about the dangers of this, but forget that it can also contribute to democracy in a positive way.”

That TikTok is the new medium for politicians, she would not want to say. “But social media will remain, in whatever form. And that is the future, also of politics.”

Are You Indie? What Makes An Indie Room?

Society

The bedroom is one’s personal space in a home. It is where one often retreats to for some alone time to break away from the complexities and disquiet of the world. Moreover, the bedroom is a one’s own space where about a third of their lifetime is spent sleeping to recuperate, recharge and reenergize after a long day. Hence, a bedroom has to have a tranquil, comfortable and an aesthetically pleasing bedroom environment so as to promote quality sleep and alone time.

What Is Indie And What Design Elements Are In An Indie Room?

When it comes to designing and decorating a bedroom, there are important factors to look into, especially if you want to create a space that incites peace and quiet, and rest and relaxation while at the same time depict your individual style and preferences. An indie room is inspired by indie aesthetic. “Indie” is a shortened word for “independent” and involves culture of the ‘70s but is for the most part correlated with the ‘90s culture and hereafter. Indie would then relate to “independence” and individuality.

Essentially, the major quality of an indie room or an indie-inspired interior design features one’s uniqueness and personal style. This can then mean that one’s design ideas and approach stems from their individuality, from own independent and distinct taste and style.

Decoration is crucial for an indie room. Indies choose unique patterns and style, including the interest for handmade items instead of factory-made. They focus of colors, patterns, pieces, and texture. Decorative items are often repurposed and Indies take on the Do-it-Yourself (DIY) approach to create and design rather than just buying off the shelf pieces. However, when they do purchase items, Indies support independent artists, designers and craftspeople who are not part of huge, industrialized companies and businesses. But still design and create (often handmade) a wide-ranging variety of products (even personalize or custom-make items).

Are You Indie?

To create an indie room, one has to give emphasis on design aesthetics merged with your personal or individual design taste, style and touches. From outlandish, eccentric or unconventional fixture and furnishing to quaint, vintage, retro or old school décors, Indie Aesthetic gravitates towards keeping your design elements utterly and downright different from anything or anyone. To make your room indie aesthetic, you have to know what “personal style” is. You should be an individual, to be your unique self, and an independent. This will surely make your approach to Indie design and décor more “uniquely you”.

Are you Indie? Is Indie Aesthetic for you? Consider the following to find out if you are indeed Indie or if Indie Aesthetic is for you:

  • You live life to the fullest and enjoy the things you love and that makes you “you”. You unbothered by what others think or say and ignore haters.
  • You have appreciation for the old, forgotten or neglected things or those that are worthy of more love and appreciation than what they’re getting.
  • You take an independent approach to life. You know what you want and are not afraid to be different or to move away from the norm.
  • You are yourself and can express your individuality not only through words but also by the way you dress, the music you listen to, the movies you watch, and the choices that you make. You voice out you’re your opinions and your beliefs.
  • You choose timeless culture over mainstream culture. You look into the past as well as the present to perceive that timeless quality. Mainstream culture is fleeting, hence will not withstand time.
  • You enjoy DIY projects, explore new hobbies, learn new skills and aren’t afraid to be creative and push your boundaries.
  • You buy from local thrift stores and deviate from big brand names and stores.

Former UK Relief Chief Voice Criticism vs UK Aid Cuts and Acts of Diverting Relief Money

General

Former UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Sir Mark Lowcock, expressed concerns that the UK has been diverting Afghanistan and Yemen relief money to help Ukraine refugees. Moreover, in an interview conducted by award-winning reporter Rob Hastings. Sir Lowcock said he is deeply worried over the British government’s cutting down of budgets in helping victims of famine and conflicts, considering that the Ukraine crisis has made matters worse.

While it is obvious that Russia’s inhumane attacks against hospitals, schools and recently a railway station in Ukraine, have been destroying lives, the other victims of Russian invasions are reportedly being abandoned by the UK government’s aid cuts.

Cutting Aid and Diverting Relief Money Will Result in Greater Loss of Lives

Sir Lowcock who has been UK’s highest-ranking British official in the UN from 2017 up to 2021, said that diverting aid money intended fro the starving people of poor countries in order to deal with the crisis in Ukraine is not right. It will actually result in the largest loss of lives, as many refugees who sought refuge in poor countries will die of starvation, in addition to the increasing body count of victims in Ukraine. The aid cuts make the UK government as guilty as anybody else.

Through a video call interview from his home in south-west London, Sir Lowcock also criticised proposed policies of sending to Rwanda those who seek asylum in the UK. After almost four decades of being at the forefront of aid programs, which culminated in his UN work, Sir Lowcock feels he has to speak out, which he did so in his new book Relief Chief.

How to Gain Fully Unbiased Knowledge About World Leaders, Politics & Politicians

Politics, Society

The world is becoming more politically polarized. It is hard to get unbiased information about world leaders, politics and politicians.

Detecting Lying Politicians With Timely Progress & Great Accuracy

Lying politicians are a serious problem in today’s world, but detecting them is not a simple task. A lot of cases have been reported where the person being investigated has been found innocent or even cleared of all charges, despite being caught in the act by a lie detector test. However, this does not mean that we should give up on our efforts to find out when someone is lying. It just means we need to be more careful and cautious when using lie detectors as they might not always be able to correctly identify liars.

The Critical Role of Truthfulness in Politics

The concept of truthfulness in politics is an old one, but it has been a hot topic recently. With the rise of social media and the internet, there is a lot more information available for people to consume. This shift in information has led to a change in how we understand politics.

How to Be a Careful Observer and Not Fall Victim to Lying Politicians?

It is important to be aware of the lies and deception that politicians tell. They often use emotional appeals, lies, and half-truths. However, it is not easy to see through these tactics. Here are some tips on how to be a careful observer and not fall victim to these deceptive tactics.

There are many ways in which politicians lie about their positions without even knowing it themselves. This can happen either by using emotional appeals or by simply telling half-truths.

In order for you not to fall victim to this type of manipulation, you should be aware of what these methods.

Politics In Heavy Duty Towing Companies

Politics

Companies aim to make rational decisions. But in reality political influences play a major role. What characterizes such political decisions?

In relation to Heavy Duty Towing companies, political decisions are decisions that people make purely rationally. This is on the basis of economically oriented parameters and calculations. In the context of politics, they use power  to achieve decisions in the interest of the political agent. They do this even if there are business arguments against it.

Express political constraints in Heavy Duty Towing companies

Political constraints take place at every level of decision-making processes. The CEO of a company must answer to a politically composed body, the supervisory board. The manager who is given the task of reorganizing his unit must present his thoughts and decisions to the works council. The project manager will only get his innovation project approved if he takes into account the individual interests of the project participants. These examples are clearly politically influenced decisions.

Heavy Duty Towing companies: How to influence political decisions?

Companies do this through communication and maintaining relationships. Communication ensures that those involved in decision-making processes only receive the necessary information that is in the interest of the influencing party. To do this, the information must be credible. The recipients must positively evaluate it. In addition, you have to win the trust of those involved. This way, the necessary positive basis for the relationship is already given in the decision-making situation and does not have to be worked out first.

Heavy Duty Towing companies: What are relationship maintenance tools?Heavy Duty Towing

Just be interested in the other person. Show that you appreciate the statements, attitudes and values ​​of the other person and that you allow them to flow into your considerations. A relationship develops through a constructive discussion and interest in your fellow human beings.

In general, you should separate private and business relationships. Unlike in a private relationship, you should respect boundaries at work and observe the “compliance” of the respective company. For example, a private invitation from a works council colleague with the aim of influencing a decision would certainly be contrary to compliance. This is also the same when accepting an invitation from a supplier to a concert or accepting gifts.

Tips on How Politics can Help Your Business

Business, Law, Political Play

Politics is a broad topic. It encompasses much of the world we live in, including our economy, and the environment. Politics can be a difficult topic to understand. But it doesn’t have to be! There are some ways that politics can actually benefit your business regardless if it is the Piccadilly Grand District and whatnot.

Business owners need to stay up-to-date on current events no matter what their political ideologies are.

Understand the Impact of Politics on Your Business

Law Graduate

It’s unlikely that your business will be completely unaffected by politics. Politics affect our economy, the environment, and more. Understanding the impact of politics on your business can help you make smarter decisions.

If you think about it, every decision you make as a business owner is going to have an effect on the world around you. If you are processing a customer’s credit card online, for example, it’s likely that there will be some sort of regulation placed on how that card is processed and what information is collected from the customer at that point in time.

The best idea is to stay informed about current events in order to understand how they might be affecting your company or industry.

Stay up-to-date to the Latest News

One of the most important ways that politics can help your business is to stay up-to-date on the latest news. As a business owner, you need to know what’s going on in the world around you. Reading about current events and looking for trends is just as important as reading about your industry. This will help you understand how certain decisions made by politicians can have an impact on your business, and vice versa.

You also need to follow any changes made at home too! Pay attention when new laws are passed and make sure that you understand their implications before they become a problem for your company.

For example, many cities across the US are considering raising their minimum wage to $15 per hour overtime. You might want to start thinking about expenses like paying employees more or figuring out other ways to keep the bottom line stable if this becomes law in your city.

Delay on Sue Gray’s Report of PM Johnson’s Partygate Scandal

News

As Prime Minister Boris Johnson leaves for North Wales, the wait for senior civil servant Sue Gray’s Partygate scandal report involving the PM will be delayed. The ‘Partygate’ controversy had the whole country engaged in discussions for weeks after the police launched a formal probe of the “‘bring your own booze” (BYOB) party taking place in Downing Street. The parties are in direct violation of multiple and mandatory pandemic restrictions ordered by the government through the Prime Minister, during the critical periods when the COVID-19 virus was spreading across London and in the UK.

What was PM Johnson’s Role in the Partygate Scandal?

Boris Johnson’s position as the Prime Minister of UK is hanging by a thread as he tries to wriggle himself out two police investigations related to the rule-breaking BYOB parties that transpired in government offices during the lockdown. The key issues of this scandal includes whether Johnson ignored the concerns for the party, when he learned about the May 2020 BYOB party, and whether the gathering breached Covid-19 restrictions. Furthermore, he was also accused of misleading the Parliament which can be a resign-worthy matter.

Johnson answered at the weekly Prime Minister’s Questions, that the staff completely followed coronavirus rules. His response to the leaked video that led to the resignation of former press secretary Allegra Stratton where his colleagues joked about the party during a mock press conference was that there were no rules broken.

The key issues of this scandal includes whether Johnson ignored the concerns for the party, when he learned about the May 2020 BYOB party, and whether the gathering breached Covid-19 restrictions. Furthermore, he was also accused of misleading the Parliament which can be a resign-worthy matter.

PM Boris Johnson continues to refuse the calls for him to resign during the weekly Prime Minister’s Questions session in the House of Commons. This despite the outcomes of the police investigation that created more damage to the Prime Minister’s reputation. The clamor for his resignation now includes calls coming from members of Johnson’s own conservative party.

Why some Countries are Restricting Specific Shows or Channels on TV?

Law, Political game, Political Play, Politics, Safety, Security

Television has become a staple in our society, but does this mean we should be allowed to watch whatever and whenever we want? Many countries have restricted the viewing of certain TV shows at times for specific reasons. For example, some countries restrict children’s TV shows during school hours or ban movies with nudity. These restrictions are designed to protect children and limit their exposure to inappropriate scenes. Here are reasons why countries restrict TV shows.

Protecting Children from Inappropriate Scenes

Some countries have been known to restrict certain TV shows for children because they can be more harmful than adults. For example, some TV shows are more likely to use strong language or depict inappropriate scenes that could harm children.

Limiting Exposure to Bad Influences

Many countries believe that children are exposed to bad influences on TV shows. Whether it’s sex, violence, or alcohol use, exposure to these things can have a lasting effect on children and cause further harm in the long-run.

Some countries have put bans on TV shows with sex scenes or nudity because they are worried about the lasting effects of this type of content. Other countries have put restrictions on TV shows during certain hours for this reason as well. These restrictions aim to limit the amount of time children spend watching TV and prevent them from being influenced by what they see.

Preventing Moral Decline

TV shows are among the most influential forms of media. The fact that they’re watched 24 hours a day, 7 days a week means they have a huge impact on society. For example, many countries have banned movies and TV shows with nudity because of the strong influence they can have on children. Countries hope that by restricting TV shows during school hours or banning certain movies, it will reduce moral decline and protect children from viewing inappropriate scenes.

We understand that countries are doing this to protect minors. But how about those who are in the right age and want to watch shows or channels that are banned? That’s where IPTV comes in. It can provide you a library of shows that will definitely fill in your entertainment needs.

How Great Recruiters are Made from Political Science and Law Graduates

Politics

Law Graduate

 

Questioning into how the transition was and if any crossovers occurred, still as to why they selected the change, we spoke to current Barrington James employees who started their career as Political Science/Law graduates.

What made you opt to pursue a career in recruitment over law?

  • Coming out of university, I didn’t realize how expensive it’s to continue pursuing law! Looking into recruitment and chatting with people within the industry it had been clear that the duty has transferrable skills, whilst making good money it had been also a good way to continue developing my confidence, attitude, and work ethic!
  • More autonomy over your workload than a legal career is what a career in recruitment offers from firms such as the Duffy Group. I liked the thought of being chargeable for my desk with the rewards being directly proportional to the trouble that I put in.
  • The job market and stability. After I graduated, we were within the heat of the 2020 election and there weren’t any perm roles within the Raleigh area. Had I taken the prospect to figure on the Biden campaign, there was no guarantee about having employment past Nov 2nd. I wanted stability, so I moved off from politics to an identical field, which was recruiting.

What crossovers have you ever found between your degree and your recruitment role?

  • The hard work! Like in law, there’s no success overnight. You get what you place in out of recruitment and also the more effort and dedication you place within the more rewards you receive.
  • Resilience, organization, and problem-solving.
  • Being able to grasp peoples’ motivations and effectively communicating with a range of individuals seem to be the most important crossovers.
  • Marketing, cold calling, fundraising, debating, convincing people to require to listen to you out, and most vital to my job, research.

What skills have you ever developed that aided you in recruitment?

  • Organization, tenacity, and ambition!
  • A large part of my degree involved advocacy; using my skills of persuasion to sell my argument, react to counterpoints, and “argue my case”. Having the ability to think quickly and sell the advantages of a task, that you simply know would be perfect for a candidate, is imperative for achievement in recruitment.
  • I think being analytical may be a good skill to possess for recruitment. Gaining a deep understanding of the pharmaceutical industry and my market (Market Access/HEOR) takes time, but i think my background has helped thereupon.

What correlation have you ever found between people who studied law, and people working in the US recruitment market?

  • I desire we all have the power to talk with differing kinds of individuals and understand their skills and motivations, all while having a level of empathy.
  • There are lots of folks. The fields are similar. Both are people-focused, driven, high-energy, and fast-paced, as both are really competitive.

Has recruitment always been a career choice? Had you considered it before Barrington James?

  • Recruitment wasn’t an option on my behalf of me initially, popping out of university I used to be adamant to remain within the sphere. Looking back at it now I wouldn’t change a thing! Recruitment has given me the possibility to develop financial freedom.
  • I began to consider recruitment after graduating. I had done some legal work experience and both the workload and therefore the working environment seemed dull. I knew that I wanted a career in recruitment at Barrington James after exploring the responsibilities of a recruitment consultant and seeing how lively the BJ sales floor office was on my interview day.
  • I am also a people person, so planning to speak with people on the phone constantly was something I used to be comfortable with.

What advice would you give to those currently studying a law subject who are puzzling over a career in recruitment?

  • Go for it! There’s nothing stopping you from being successful outside of Law. There also aren’t many roles with such earning potentials so quickly after university!
  • Recruiters are a number of the friendliest people going so my advice would be to achieve dead set people within the industry and have a talk with them! If you would like a career that offers the fantastic earning potential, responsibility from day one, and a good social scene, then recruitment is for you.
  • There is no limit to your earning potential and also the buzz you get is exciting (much in Law!).

 

Understanding the Benefits of Every Postal Worker

Business, Law, Technology

 

For even the most part, postal workers get the same general benefits as government employees and monitor their status in LiteBlue. Workers of the United States Postal Service, on the other hand, pay far lower bi-weekly health-care rates than those of the competition Civil Service.

Their retiring strategy is in place.

A pension plan is one of the numerous perks that a postal worker receives when they retire from the United States Postal Service. Postal employees are eligible for a 401(k) plan as well as social security benefits. They will be able to retire with lots of youth and money. And this is simply the cherry on top!

Their daily salary is also taken care of.

While working as a postal worker may not bring in a lot of money, it is a career that pays well. Workers in the postal service earn about $60,000 per year. Isn’t it something we can’t overlook as compensation?
Postal employees are compensated for overtime, have health and life insurance, retirement plans, paid vacations, and paid holidays in addition to their base income. Because the USPS is a federal organization, you will always have the advantages of employment security and tenure.

Every day, they are paid to explore.

It’s a plus to be able to travel to deliver stuff. So, if they like discovering the nooks and crannies of cities, this profession will compensate them for doing so.
They don’t seem to be the best students in the class.
This is an inclusive field! In the profession, your grades or other academic accomplishments are irrelevant. However, you may need to meet the qualifying requirements! And the USPS has put this in place, however having a degree is not one of them, albeit being pleasant and smiling may count! All candidates are given additional training when they are employed.

They are not directly supervised by the boss.

In most cases, postal employees are not directly monitored by their supervisor. For obvious reasons, postal work is not an office environment where you cannot avoid dealing with your boss. A postal carrier just goes about his or her business unsupervised.

They get to put money into a savings account.

The Thrift Savings Plan (TSP), which is comparable to 41(k) retirement funds programs, is funded by career postal workers. If they are private-sector employers, that is.

Pandemic Video Gaming Drove Growth to Ireland’s Video Games Industry

Business

As tech companies stayed afloat amidst the pandemic, many were thankful for the distraction provided by video games during the stressful mandatory lockdowns. In Ireland, the country’s gaming industry experienced a phenomenal boom since Irish adults and young people alike warmed to video games as their stay-at-home go-to-entertainment.

Video game development companies in Northern Ireland are benefiting greatly from the resulting boom even after Brexit. The boost in sales enabled them to meet the UK government’s eligibility criteria for Video Games Tax Relief.

The UK strongly supports the video games industry as the country ranks second to Germany, for having the largest video games market on a global scale. Based on the data released by UK’s OfCom, around 62% of the nation’s adult population played video games, to which Northern Ireland players were in the thick of the gaming boom in 2020.

According to the Irish Post, data gathered from Pure Telecom showed that 36% of Ireland’s adult population played video games online.

Factors that Sparked the Popularity of Video Gaming in Ireland

Even before the pandemic, esports is already a passion among Irish locals. In Laois County, 33% of residents are quite involved in esports tournaments either as competitors or as audience members. Esports tournaments also enjoy great followings in Dublin and Limerick.

Yet the significant factors that drove growth to Ireland’s video game industry is not only the passion for esports. At the height of the health crisis in 2020, majority of Ireland’s households found the tech-oriented entertainment as the most satisfying form of distraction. The video games provided adults relief from stress and at the same time presented opportunities to bond with younger family members.

The Irish Post was able to gather data indicating that 71% of parents who responded to their surveys, mentioned that playing video games enabled them and their children to experience a less stressful environment. Moreover, fifty-nine percent of the survey respondents said their children were mostly engaged in educational video games.

Irish parents also discovered video board games to play both offline and online The virtual versions also posed as another form of social activity. Amidst the health crisis that prevented them from interacting with friends and neighbors, online multiplayer versions enabled them to make new friends with people from different places across the globe.

According to the Irish Post, their research data showed that while esports gamers spend an average of six hours per week behind their gamin consoles, other video game players in Ireland have been spending as much as 10 hours each week, That being the case, the increased appetite for video gaming in Ireland rubbed off on related businesses particularly in the gaming chairs market.

Gaming Chairs in Ireland also Gained Popularity

The need for gaming chairs became pronounced after adult Irish players realized that the best way to fully enjoy the hours spent video gaming is to take on a sitting position that supports proper posture. Apparently, adult gamers experienced back, neck, arms and leg strains sitting for prolonged hours on regular office or dining chairs.

It became clear that all the health benefits touted as reasons for using gaming chairs are not just hyped-up selling points. In fact even in work places, gaming chairs have become the preferred sitting provisions. The ergonomic support they provide makes a huge difference for people who practically have to sit long hours in front of computers.

Still, not all gaming chairs in the market offer the same levels of comfort and durability. It’s always best to checkout gaming chair brands backed by reliable consumer and expert reviews before purchasing one. A popular gaming chairs information resource for Irish  consumers

IQ Test & Politics: Habits That Make You Smart

Politics

Far from being a fixed capacity, intelligence evolves depending on how you use it in certain demanding situations.

IQ test and politics: Make effective use of the online environment

Spending most of your time on the Internet learning about politics is not necessarily a bad thing. It is important to take advantage of every moment to learn something new. The online environment is full of opportunities that can help you develop your intellect. Online courses, IQ test gratis, instructional videos and articles can make you put your mind to the contribution. So the next time you want to take a break, do something constructive. It replaces the social networks you access so often with online learning resources.

Games and intelligence tests are not only fun but also train your brain. If you indulge in a state of stagnation, your mind will get used to this situation and will not have the opportunity to develop as much as possible. The easiest way to avoid making this a habit is to use puzzles and games in your free time. This will stimulate you through the problems you have to solve.

IQ test and politics: Read political information as often as possible

It is quite obvious that reading encourages the process of developing intelligence. A truly productive day cannot end without reading at least a few pages, whether it is about political books or newspapers. Reading relaxes you while helping you discover various perspectives on the world. It helps you to understand all the information you have to pass it through the mind filter and then assimilate it.

Technology has many advantages, but in terms of your intelligence, it can sometimes generate negative results.

Technology And The Internet Reshaping Society: E-Book Reader And E-Government

Technology

Although technology has made some disagreeable and unlikable effects on society all together, the positive impacts it has made on society outweighs the negatives. Because of this, life has become easier for many, as well as accorded many with the tools, resources and knowledge required to live a quality life. Essentially, every aspect of human life could be performed and completed in a faster, easier, and more effective manner through technological solutions which result in fewer problems in one way, but also added problems in another. Regardless, technology is here to stay and will continue to be innovated and advanced.

A Different Reading Experience with an E-book Reader

An e-book reader is an abridged term for electronic book reader. This is a dedicated handheld device making it possible for reading materials in digital version, better known as e-Books, to be opened, viewed as well as read by users. Although you can read e-books on a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone, an e-book reader provides more features that will make your e-book reading more enjoyable and well as comfortable to the eyes. In addition, an e-book reader allows you browse from thousands to millions of e-books, purchase as much as you want and store them in your device for future reading. There are e-books that you can even download for free.

For over two decades, the technology for e-book readers and e-books has been made available in a more basic and undeveloped form. These devices only started to catch on when Amazon introduced their Kindle e-reader in 2009 and the Apple’s iPad in 2010. Today, there are quite a number of e-book readers in the market and over the recent years, the cost of these devices have considerably dropped. However, when it comes to its hardware, significant improvements and upgrades were done and high-tech features have become a standard specification, such as high-resolution screen, backlight, and waterproofing.

Governments Going Electronic

Because of the many positive impacts of technology, it is now ubiquitous, where almost all industries and sectors have efficiently incorporated and integrated them into their systems, processes, operations or functions. This includes governments.

With technology and the internet, governments are starting to go electronic. E-government is a word that is used to describe any processes, systems, or functions in the government that count on digital information technology which are primarily carried out through the internet. Among the advantages of governments going electronic include bettered movement of information from government to citizen, citizen to government, as well as inside the government itself. Furthermore, e-governments greatly aids in modernizing procedures in the administration, bettering economies and fostering transparency in all processes.

While the definition of the term e-government is innately broad, the University of Albany has broken down the functionality of an e-government into four main factors: e-services, e-democracy, e-commerce, and e-management.

E-services deals with the delivery of government information, services, and programs in digital format.

E-democracy aids in fostering and bettering participation of citizens in the government

E-commerce is the exchange of money in digital format. Paying taxes, for instance.

E-management helps in the processes and operations within the government, which includes efficient and prompt information flow and effective record keeping.

There are more in-depth benefits of an e-government. However, even though technology is available in order to make and establish a more efficient e-government, most governmental agencies still have much work to do.

Political Education Is More Important Now

News, Politics, Safety

This site can help to guide you to research school elections. I know that attention to elections varies enormously. If you have a problem with your phone being locked, try to remove iCloud Removal to solve your problem with your phone and it can guide you to vote wisely.

They thought political socialization was for home, not for school. From my research into school elections, I know that attention to elections varies enormously. At one school, students and teachers organize student elections together, at the other, teachers limit themselves to handing out a link to a voting guide. At one school, students and teachers talk extensively about their political concerns, questions and experiences, at the other school discussions about controversial (political) issues are avoided. Why this difference? In the Netherlands, political education in secondary education is primarily invested in the subject of social studies. This course focuses on promoting knowledge and thinking skills. Many civics teachers will support students in forming and questioning an opinion about political issues. Supporting students in learning to position their opinion about, for example, the meaninglessness of voting alone is not part of their formal task.

Attention to political opinion-forming

The current Citizenship Education Act of 2006 also offers little guidance. This law obliges schools to promote the active participation of students but does not provide any further criteria. If a school starts pricking plastic with students, it formally meets this requirement. Fortunately, the new citizenship law, which was approved by the House of Representatives in 2020, is more committed to promoting democratic participatory skills. Attention to political opinion-forming that goes further than ‘what do you think of position X, however, is not yet commonplace in political education.

Each teacher is an expert in a specific subject

Firstly, attention to political opinion-forming is part of the qualifying task of education: every teacher is an expert in a specific subject. With this expertise, he or she can help students to form an informed opinion about the (non) sense, (un)feasibility, and (un)lawfulness of proposed policy of political parties on topics that concern them. Secondly, it is part of the socializing task of education: many people find themselves in their own political bubble. Respect for the fact that people have a different opinion than you, and expressing your opinion in a respectful way (without death threats) is not something everyone gets from home. Modesty about what you don’t know and neither does the courage to change your mind. It is at school that pupils with (parents with) different political colors can reflect on current and desirable values ​​and norms in the field of freedom of expression. Thirdly, it is part of the person-building task of education: students and teachers are all concerned about certain social issues. They all have an opinion about how (not much) useful it is to cast your vote, and about what is (less) well organized in the Netherlands. With a bit of luck, they also occasionally dare to indicate in our society of opinions that they know too little about something to find anything about it. By discussing these concerns, opinions, doubts, and questions, teachers can support students in finding their own voice. So let’s continue to support young people in education in forming political opinions, and learn how to respectfully deal with the political opinions of others.

 

Ministers And Legislators Who Are Clinging To Their Housing 

Politics

They are deputies, senators, mayors, or former ministers, they have a comfortable income. and social housing in Paris. An “ethically untenable” situation judges Jean-Yves Mano, elected socialist, deputy mayor of Paris in charge of housing, while the city receives, each year 120,000 requests for a low-rent apartment in the park of the capital, of which only 10 % get a favorable response.

A recent report from the Regional Chamber of Accounts (CRC) judges that “the structurally low turnover rate in Paris” is partly due to “well-off” occupants who “the cost of housing with furniture such as on the private market” encourages “not to leave their social housing “, leaving applicants with more modest means to seek housing in the private sector. And among these “well-off”, we find a number of elected officials.

“TRANSPARENCY” OPERATION

In 2008, the mayor of Paris launched a “transparency” operation following the revelation of the “Boulder affair” named after the chief of staff of the then housing minister, Christine Boutin, who occupied boulevard du Port-Royal, 190 m 2 housing for a very “social” rent. The town hall initiative aimed to encourage “deputies, senators, or members of the government” to evacuate the city’s social park to find accommodation in the private sector. But not everyone followed this advice. Among the politicians clinging to housing in the city of Paris, the Real Estate Agency of the City of Paris (RIVP) reports Jean-Pierre Chevènement. Former Interior Minister and Socialist senator have a 120 sqm apartment in the 5th district of Paris for 1271 € per month, despite the 7000 euros in revenues for its own parliamentary mandate. The price for a similar apartment in this popular district turns, in the private park, around € 3,000 per month.

MINISTERS, PARLIAMENTARIANS IN SOCIAL HOUSING

Michèle Bluemental’s first deputy, Alexis Corbière, elected left front, is also a tenant of an apartment in the RSVP. The elected representative occupies housing in the city of Paris obtained before his election. “Today I receive from the city 2,968 euros per month (4,100 euros gross), but will my mandate be renewed in 2014? My family and I will then still need a roof.” An explanation similar to that provided by the UMP Jean-Jacques Gianesinni, elected to the council in Paris on 19th and tenant of an apartment in the city in the neighborhood Porte de Pantin: “I have no choice, the exorbitant prices of Parisian accommodation prevent me from doing otherwise. I got this apartment in the 1990s when I was unemployed (he is now Chantal Jouanno’s collaborator at the Ministry of Sports); the impression of stealing anything, “he says. The income ceilings to be eligible for social housing in Paris are, for a couple, between 19,614 euros and 42,962 euros depending on the category of accommodation. Nevertheless, on the side of the town hall of Paris, it is estimated that it is necessary not to make an amalgam between former ministers, ministers, parliamentarians, on the one hand, and local elected officials whose incomes are up to five times lower.

Protecting Your Move From Rogue Movers

When it comes to choosing a moving company, there are plenty of movers offering their services in the market. However, there are moving companies who take advantage of their clients for their own ill gain. Because of this, the U.S. Government have partnered with the moving industry, the law enforcement as well as consumer groups to equip consumers with the proper information so as to protect themselves from rogue movers.

Over 35 million people in the US relocate every year, and most moving companies are legitimate delivering quality work. But, there is an increasing number of complaints and grievances against interstate movers.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration or FMCSA created the Protect Your Move website which provides a database for consumers to search for an interstate moving company either by name or state as well as check on their on-road safety performance records and consumer complaint history.

Furthermore, congress focused on the issue of rogue movers by means of hearings as well as funding consumer outreach programs. This attention they have given has aided in creating and establishing the partnership and collaboration between officials of the Federal, State and Local government, and the moving industry.

Politics And DB Market Economy System

Politics

Almost all over the world, companies such as db train operate within the framework of market economic systems. dbThese are characterized by the freedom of action of consumers and producers. The freedom of action of companies is restricted by the competition for the favour of consumers. Their priorities, wishes and needs change with social and economic change.

In order to guarantee the freedom of action of consumers and producers, to ensure compliance with mutual obligations and to prevent abuse of power, the state must provide a reliable legal system and make use of regulatory measures

He takes care of the necessary infrastructure and an efficient education system. The state influences the design of working conditions as well as the use of the environment. The state contributes to the prerequisites for economic activity.

Role of politics in DB business

Ultimately, politics also corrects, repairs or compensates socially undesirable consequences of economic activity. It intervenes, for example, in the event of unequal living conditions, environmental pollution and economic crises. In doing so, it can also limit the individual’s options for action, especially if they are at the expense of third parties. Thus, taxes, regulations, use or bans experienced by those affected usually as significant limitations on the freedom of action.

However, politicians and state administrations are also guided by self-interest. Under the conditions of globalization, the states are in mutual competition in the favour of capital owners. This is characterized above all by trade and investment freedoms, Politicians on the other hand, under the pressure of re-election, have to take the interests of their electorate into account.

In their capacity as employment-dependent employees, they can usually not help determine entrepreneurial decisions. But as consumers control the supply of goods through their purchase decisions and can through their voting decisions in the democratic system indirectly influencing directional guidelines for shaping the economic framework.

Politics: Competition as the engine of the DB market economy

Above all, the competition to which the companies are exposed should, according to current opinion, lead to such a functioning market. It is considered a dynamic selection process in which the competitors have the same goal.

White House Announces Lifting of Travel Restrictions on 33 Countries

News

This week, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator Jeff Zients announced that the US will resume accepting fully vaccinated air travelers of 33 countries. The announcement is part of the White House’s effort to ease pandemic-related restrictions this coming November. Ex-president Donald Trump ordered the travel restriction in 2020 but without fully providing conditions on how and when the ban will be lifted.

The list of countries to which the US will reopen for vaccinae supporting countries mies like Italy, France, Greece, Germany, Switzerland and Spain, as well as Britain, Ireland, China, Iran, Brazil, India, and South Africa. The past restrictions have forced these countries to institute counter travel restrictions on vaccinated U.S. air travelers visiting their respective countries.

The announcement though was a surprise since Pres. Biden previously declared that it’s still not the best time to lift travel restrictions, as the coronavirus cases across the globe are still on the rise.

Travel Advisory Announcements Included Extended Restriction Bans on Land Borders

The White House announcements included advisory that the U.S. has lengthened the duration of pandemic-related restrictions for non-essential tourists entering the US via the land-borders of Mexico and Canada/ The extension will be in effect up to October 21, 2021 The land border extension did not specify if the extended restriction applies to fully vaccinated tourists who entering the aforementioned borders.

Politicians Decide Which Artwork Will Be Displayed In The House Of Representatives

Politics

Recently, the old art committee of the House of Representatives has been resuscitated. That committee must decide which works will adorn the rooms, corridors, and debating rooms. Deciding on the purchase of paintings, or the loan of sculptures could be a challenge. In preparation, the committee will also have to decide on paint and paintbrushes for trim. While the committee argues on the smallest details like how to paint trim without brush strokes, they will have to come to a decision soon.

Although chairman Alexander Pechtold only jokes that the company is ‘the most political committee‘ that the House has ever set up, fireworks are perhaps really inevitable. “I’ve been alderman for culture, so I know: art is always a hassle. The first work on a roundabout already causes controversy. But it will probably also be a lot of fun.” Pechtold may lead the ‘sleeping’ previous committee. And that probably won’t work yet. Take Baudet and Agema: complete opposites. The FvD leader is a renaissance enthusiast and campaigns against abstract art. He called a modern architect like Rem Koolhaas ‘the greatest crimes against humanity. While PVV member Agema was an architect of modern office buildings and housing complexes. She can’t always appreciate even renowned classical works, she says when asked.

Eager

Don’t let the graduate art historian hear Pechtold, she jokes. Although Agema is not out for confrontations. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have been in it, anyway. PVV’er Martin Bosma was asked by Chamber President Khadija Arib to poll in his group who would like to become a member. There is no lack of enthusiasm among a number of other members. 50Plus Member of Parliament Leonie Sazias is eager, as long as it doesn’t turn into ‘high-flown nonsense’. “I did one year of art school. Terrible! A lot of blah. Someone had a completely failed work, but made up such a grandiose story that everyone was still applauding.” Later she started working for Veronica, but she has always kept knitting. Knit? “Certainly. With copper wire, for example. You can make beautiful spatial work with that.” Does she know that fellow committee member Baudet finds contemporary art, especially abstract art, ugly and a real ‘one-sided leftist attack on our home’? “So-so, well, that would be a shame, but we’ll figure it out.”

More pleasant

Although: at the first introductory meeting, there were immediately some heels in the sand. Baudet once again emphasizes that he has no affinity for abstract work, while Agema did not want to mention that money should above all be avoided. Furthermore, it was not overflowing with heat, one of those present noticed. Not everyone would have shaken hands. Perhaps because there were some latecomers who quickly looked for a seat, but Baudet and Pechtold would have shunned each other, according to the person present. “I hope it gets a little more fun.” A number of the committee members have already checked which works are in circulation in the building. Hidden on a mezzanine floor of the House of Representatives building is a depot, where a few hundred works are kept. Members of parliament can borrow paintings to hang in their offices. Although the door is not flat. Yes, a few, such as VVD member and later minister Ard van der Steur.

Klieder

And there are a few desirable pieces in circulation: such as a painting by Winston Churchill that currently hangs in Geert Wilders’ room. As soon as he exchanges that for something else, it will be gone again, predicts the depot manager. Furthermore, especially popular among MPs: large, colorful, and more often modern than classic. Yet there is also a lot of mediocre or even ‘awful’ work, arising from the Visual Artists Regulation (1956-1987) when the government bought back works from artists, as a disguised subsidy scheme. Most of that mess is gathering dust in storage.

How Politics Can Influence Sunscreen Regulations

Politics

Sunscreen

 

I never thought that I’d ever inquired into political issues as they relate to sunscreens, but the case is extremely charged and future decisions are sure to matter with any changes within the administration and therefore the political landscape.

As I’m putting this on ink column, Vice-President Joe Biden has won the US Presidential Election. President Donald Trump, however, has not acknowledged his defeat within the election and has vowed to contest that call. The Senate is additionally being contested and also the two run-off elections within the state of Georgia deciding the bulk status are held in early January. A split Congress, with the bulk within the House and Senate belonging to the opposing parties, will have significant implications on future regulations.

During the previous Democratic administration, in 2014, the Surgeon General issued a “Call to Action” to create combating cancer a high priority. The following year, Biden launched a “Moonshot” program to combat carcinoma. Implementing this ambitious effort was undertaken with no real progress. As that shot came too late during the Obama Administration. A replacement administration with Biden as president will most definitely put combating cancer front and center again.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) studies published within the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in 2019 and 2020 raised the bar significantly regarding the security of ultraviolet filters. Not only to approve new UV filters but also to permit the utilization of these filters that were deemed Category I since 1978, new suggestions have emerged that extensive MUsT, DART research, and long-term damage and other reproductive tests must be conducted.

The FDA exclusive privileges to issue final regulations with minimal due process of law from these manufacturers of UV filters and sunscreens is what the OTC Monograph Reform legislation of 2020 gave. Final administrative orders (AO) that may ban or approve as GRASE (Category I) the present list of UV filters which the FDA is now authorized to issue. Potentially, they will ban most of the organic absorbing UV filters and possibly keep philosopher’s wool and titanic oxide because the only two approved UV filters. Any new UV filters or modifications in percentages permitted, to be used in sunscreen formulations is what the OTC Reform Act has authorized substantial “administrative fees” approved. Levied on manufacturers of all sunscreen products like the ones reviewed at 랭킹닷컴 and those within the US are those OMUFA and OMOR fees.

A Study on Coral

Another development, which was precipitated by the recent Hawaii legislation, immersed the banning of oxybenzone, octinoxate, and other UV filters because of their environmental impact on coral reefs. Several other states, and even other countries, soon followed Hawaii’s lead and initiated requires similar legislation.

To check the impact of UV filters on coral reefs and can also evaluate the potential public health implications related to reduced use of sunscreen for protection against ultraviolet exposure, Congress has authorized a study by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). An expert panel is being recruited and can be announced soon.

So, what’s pending at the FDA concerning sunscreen regulations? Everything! For one thing, Secretary of Health and Human Service (HHS) Alex Azar recently mandated that no decisions by the FDA are often issued without his approval. Azar’s limitations on the FDA will be undoubtedly reversed by the Biden appointment at the HHS. Additionally, decreased regulations, and also the reduction of restrictions on business, are that the mainstay of this Republican administration vis-a-vis the Democratic party’s platform. No matter who is in power, regulations must be finalized as major issues confront sunscreen regulations. Will that happen in our lifetime? Nobody knows!

Many Issues Remain

Currently, it behooves us to review them to grasp and appreciate the seriousness and gravity of their consequences as there are many issues regarding sunscreen regulations.

A “Proposed Order“ for the regulation of sunscreens was issued by the 2020 OTC Monograph Reform legislation. UV filters that are GRASE and Category I filters are going to be approved or disqualified s the FDA will soon issue “Administrative Orders” (AO).

The testing protocols have not been finalized yet to see the efficacy and the security of UV filters.

OMOR and OMUFA fees are going to be levied on all future developments and production of sunscreens.

Will the US allow the so-called Time and Extent Application (TEA) European filters?

If avobenzone and therefore the spouse dozen organic UV absorbing chemical filters are banned, then the industry as we all know it today will cease to exist. The impact on radiation protection is immense. Will the photostability issues be addressed if avobenzone is approved? Will ZnO and TiO2 be allowed to be mixed with avobenzone?

All the opposite issues that I’ve got repeatedly outlined in my previous columns are going to be live, including SPF levels, spray safety, testing issues, and nanoparticles.

While I’ve got focused my column on the continued issues with sunscreen regulations that directly impact our industry, I’m cognizant of the continuing issues that our country faces during this COVID-19 pandemic. But the actual fact is that, together with the pandemic, carcinoma will still be one of every of our major health concerns. They’re not mutually exclusive health concerns, and concerted efforts all told facets of society and industry can work together to unravel both issues and, hopefully, give us something positive within the New Year.

 

Do Video Games like RAID affect Teen’s Viewpoint in Politics?

Political game, Politics

Even in our modern time, there’s so little that we know about how video games are influencing the civic engagement of the youth. There haven’t been a lot of studies available whether civic development is backed by civic gaming experience as working with others cooperatively, creating a virtual nation, expanding social network online or even help the less seasoned players to get around the game.

While the latter is possible by reading guides such as RAID guide and tutorials (if you’re into it), still it requires thorough studies to support any arguments. Though the connection between these civic activities in other civic outcomes as well as domains has been studied.

Studies Showing the Youth’s Political Point-of-View

Experts in the subject of civic education have performed quasi-experimental and longitudinal studies that checks the connection between social contexts and school-based civic learning opportunities and the political and civic engagement of younger people. In the research, the contexts and opportunities that are discovered to be effective include the following:

  1. Learning how political, governmental and legal systems work
  2. Learning about social issues
  3. Taking part in simulations of both political and civic activities
  4. Volunteering to help others and;
  5. Taking part in extracurricular activities in which young people could expand their social networks and practice productive group norms

When such experiences are handed out to young people both in school and in an after-school setting, especially to adolescents who are at their critical age of development for civic identity, the research discovered that it boosts their commitment to political and civic participation.

Video Games and its Impact

The continuous growth and popularity of video games especially among teens raises some eyebrows whether it can deliver the same opportunities for political and civic engagement with similar results. In this regard, the civic gaming experiences measured include:

  • Guiding or helping other players
  • Playing video games in which one knows about a challenge or problem in the society
  • Playing games that are exploring social issue that the player cares about
  • Playing games wherein players need to think of their ethical or moral issues
  • Playing games where players can help in making decisions on how the community, the city or the nation as a whole must be run and;
  • Organizing guilds or game groups

Control Of The Railway Sector Through Politics

News

The railroad has a multitude of points of contact with politics such as the Deutsche Bahn in Germany (Read bahnauskunft about Deutsche Bahn here). The federal government is the owner, regulator, and main source of funding. The railways have been an unpopular stepchild in transport policy for many years; hardly any transport minister in the last few decades has shown interest in or committed to the sector. Fortunately, in the current political debate, the railway has moved a little more to the fore.

Recent developments in the management of railways in Germany is going through a strike

The strike called by the train drivers’ union GDL in the wage conflict with the railways is straining the nerves and patience of many travelers.

The system of Financial Control in the Railways

The system for the financial control and promotion of the railways that has emerged in recent years is contradictory: On the one hand, the government has decided to no longer measure DB by profit maximization – nevertheless, the stipulation continues that the train path prices have a “capital market-adequate rate of return” must include. The level of the train path prices is determined in an extremely complex administrative process. These only apply to long-distance transport; the actual prices are determined differently for local rail passenger transport and freight transport. Today, environmentally friendly rail is the only mode of transport that pays emissions taxes (cars should also pay from 2021; there have been no decisions so far for trucks and air transport). On the one hand, the railway is promoted and relieved (including an increase in regionalization funds (RegMittel), capital increase DB), at the same time the government is trying to impose new burdens on companies in the sector by increasing or creating new fees.

Strategies for financial control developed slowly

In addition, strategies are only implemented and developed very slowly. In the master plan for rail freight transport from June 2017, for example, the decline in single wagon traffic was discussed. The topic is also dealt with in the current “Future Alliance” without any concepts on the table. In view of the dramatic situation in the segment, a discussion lasting almost three years with no result is unsatisfactory. The 740 m network was named in the master plan as a “measure to be checked at short notice”. The implementation of the first construction measures (signal relocations) is now in prospect for 2025. However, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) can, if politically wanted, implement projects much faster: Between the decision to equip two test stretches on motorways with overhead lines, and the erection of the first masts only took a few months. Plan approval is required for electrification measures on the railways. Recently, it became known in a project that the examination at the Federal Railway Authority alone took more than three years.

Uncategorized

However, several Conservative MPs have expressed their disappointment over Prime Minister Johnson’s decision to follow the footsteps of new U.S. President Joe Biden. The latter announced the withdrawal of American troops from the NATO forces in Afghanistan sometime in April, 2021.

As it is, only a few UK military personnel remains in Afghanistan to facilitate a new phase of the UK Government’s support for the country until the end of NATO’s mission

Conservative MPs Warn PM Johnson of Catastrophic Results of the UK Pullout

Senior Tories, some of whom had served in the British military are concerned that the Taliban, the other faction in the Afgahn Civil War, would succeed in re-establishing control over the region. The only thing that prevented them from doing so is the presence of UK and US troops deployed in the country to help the Afghan government maintain control.

MP Tom Tugendhat, a former Army officer who chairs the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee, said the Prime Minister talks about achievements that were attained with the blood of his friends. All of which will be undone if the Taliban succeeds in reasserting itself. MP Tugendhat’s main concern is that other countries will no longer perceive the British as reliable allies.

Sir Iain Duncan Smith, a former Tory leader told the House of Commons that the UK’s withdrawal from the Afghan region looks a lot like the hurried exit the U.S. did in Vietnam, after failing to help the South Veitnamese win in the civil war against the communist North Koreans.

Sir Edward Leigh, a Veteran Conservative MP said the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan marks a sad day as it poses as a “catastrophic defeat for the West.” MP Leigh sees it as an abandonment of their friends in Afghanistan whose protection was the life work of tens of thousands British personnel.

Nusrat Ghani, a former Parliamentary Under-Secretary who served at the State Department for Transport voiced concerns for the Afghan women and children, as their schools and clinics will be closed under Taliban rule.

PM Johnson Insists the UK Troop Withdrawal Does not Denote Abandonment of Commitment

According to PM Johnson, the UK is not abandoning its commitment to the Afghan nation, whilst rejecting calls for conducting an inquiry into the war. As it is, the UK will continue to give the Afghan government funding for development (£100 million) and funding for security forces (£58 million).

However, the government is also aware of the dangers of the present day situations and what lies ahead for the 750 military trainers who will facilitate the transition.

The Head of the Armed Forces, Gen./Sir Nick Carter said the situation is “pretty grim as the Afghanistan government is losing its grip over a country that is greatly fractured. Nonetheless, he doubts that the Taliban will be able to have complete control since the Afghan government forces have the advantage of international air support given to them.
