Time Management Skills

Often in class we talk about ‘transferrable skills’ - a skill that you can use in one environment that can also be used in another – for example – doing PowerPoint presentations.  During your College career, you learn how to create and give good presentations to your instructors and classmates.  This is a skill that will be valuable in your professional career when presenting to colleagues and clients.

World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day is observed on 10th October each year. This year the World Health Organisation has announced that the goal of the 2020 World Mental Health Day is increased investment in mental health. We know from past experience of health emergencies and economic crises that the need for mental health and psychosocial support will substantially increase in the coming months and years.

Disinfectants are useful as enhancers in washing with lukewarm water and soap to treat pathogenic microorganisms, such as the new Coronavirus Covid- 19.

This virus just like other pathogen viruses structurally  has an outer shell consisting of lipids and proteins.  Due to lipids the shell is easily dissolved by soap and lukewarm water and the Coronavirus is destroyed. However soap and water are not always available while soaping  does not kill all pathogens. This is why in some cases a disinfection may be required .

Life after the Coronavirus lockdown: Lessons in Resilience

If someone had told you last year that you would spend the spring of 2020 in lockdown, due to a pandemic, what would you have said? You probably would have found it unbelievable. You probably would have said there was no way you could stay at home for days and weeks on end, without going “crazy”.

But it did happen. And whilst a heightened level of distress and anxiety are completely normal reactions to a situation as worrying and uncontrollable as a pandemic, most of us did not “lose” our minds.  You may be experiencing some stress-related reactions may including iirritability, poor concentration, insomnia and reduced productivity. But we faced some of our worst fears and we survived. You probably learnt recently that you are more resilient than you had realised.

The mysterious dark matter | Science Pages

The observations of astronomers in the Universe have shown that we do not see matter in its entirety, only 5%. 68% is attributed to the dark energy due to the expansion of the Universe, while 27% is made up of dark matter, which does not interact with electromagnetic radiation. The astronomers came to this conclusion using supernova type 1a as the standard wax, the accelerating expansion of the Universe, but also the phenomenon of the gravitational lens, in order to calculate the mass of galactic clusters and found that there is much more matter directly in the Universe observable.

Coronavirus COVID-19

In December 2019, the Chinese authorities notified the world that a virus was spreading through their communities. In the following months it spread to other countries with cases doubling within days. It has triggered lockdowns in dozens of nations, and the disease continues to spread. This disease is called COVID-19 (most commonly known as coronavirus). COVID-19 is caused by SARS-COV-2 or “severely acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2” (because it’s genetically similar to the SARS CORONAVIRUS which was responsible for the SARS outbreak in 2002).
