LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Ocoee Massacre was ignited on Election Day of 1920, when Moses Norman, a Black citizen, attempted to vote in Ocoee and was turned away. After a white mob came to the home of his friend, July Perry, in search of Norman, gunshots erupted. An unknown number of people were killed, including Perry, who was lynched in Orlando in the early hours of the next day. Eventually, the Black population of Ocoee fled, never to return. In telling the story, History Center staff have relied extensively on original research into primary sources and oral histories.Yesterday, This Was Home explores not only this horrific event in Central Florida’s past but also other historical and recent incidents of racism, hatred and terror. One of the exhibition’s recurring themes is the oppression of the Black community and their battle to rise above it, from enslavement, to the impact of the Ocoee Massacre, to the Black Lives Matter movement today.History Center staff have also designed Yesterday, This Was Home to encourage reflection on a century of social transformation, the power of perspective, and the importance of exercising the right to vote. Multiple interactives about voting, videos and digital maps enhance the visitor experience.To follow social distancing, the History Center has implemented new timed ticketing procedures for the special exhibition Yesterday, This Was Home: The Ocoee Massacre of 1920. For safety purposes, capacity will be limited in our exhibit hall. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Media tours are available by appointment the week of Oct. 5, 2020.

Champion idea for workplace skillsOn 1 Jan 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. An attempt to boost work-based training and skills levels has been launchedby the DfES and NTO National Council. The Employer Champions Group met for the first time last month. It willadvise Government, the Learning and Skills Council and the emerging SectorSkills Development Agency on how to promote NVQs and the national occupationalstandards on which they are based. Senior employers put forward by the NTOnetwork and champions nominated by the CBI and TUC make up the group. It ischaired by Hugh Try CBE, deputy chairman of Galliford Try, chairman of the CITBand member of the LSC’s Adult Committee. “There’s not enough knowledge and use of national occupationalstandards and the qualifications leading from them,” said Try. “If wecould only make a wider group of employers aware of their existence andpotential, it would help to raise productivity and competitiveness.” According to Try, there is no shortage of champions who are enthusiasticabout national occupational standards. The aim is to reach the uninformed.”There’s a real head of steam and enthusiasm among people who are in theknow. The problem is extending that to others,” he said. “It’s a matter of putting together a convincing case – with realindustry situations – to get through to employers. This is a job of sufficientimportance that the DfES has agreed it will continue under the new sectorskills arrangements.” Bert Clough, senior training adviser at the TUC, hopes the work of the groupwill help boost the number of training programmes which are based on recognisedoccupational standards leading to NVQs. “We’re particularly interested inincreasing the number of people going through to NVQ level 2 – that’s where theproblem is. “About a third of the workforce are in jobs which have requiredcompetences at that level, but the vast majority have no qualifications whichattest their skills and competence. This limits individuals’ career paths andreduces labour mobility.” Clough said the time is right for an employer champions group. Its formationcoincides with proposals in the Chancellor’s pre-budget report for employer taxcredits to support training to level 2, and comes ahead of tighter regulationsexpected in some areas of employment which will require qualification to level2 as a minimum. “The likelihood of tax incentives and regulation makes the job mucheasier,” said Clough. “Awareness of standards is of nationalimportance. If employers train not to national occupational standards but tomeet their own narrow needs, there will be a lack of transferable skills, moreskills gaps and skills shortages.” By Elaine Essery Comments are closed.

Share via Shortlink (Ulmer Nest)A group in Germany has come up with a novel way to provide emergency shelter to people experiencing homelessness in their city.A six-person team in Ulm has designed wood and steel “pods” that are relatively cheap to build, waterproof and windproof, the BBC reported. The shelters, called Ulmer Nests, are in their second year of trials.The team conceived of the idea in 2018 and tested out its first pods last winter. They’re designed to keep two people protected from the harsh weather in Ulm, a city at the edge of the Alps, although the team said that they are not meant to be alternatives to indoor shelters.“[We] spent a good deal of time improving insulation and climate management, to be able to keep humidity and temperature at the best possible levels while operating on a limited budget of energy,” a team member said, according to BBC.Each Ulmer Nest is powered by solar panels and outfitted with lights, an alarm system and ventilation. They have sensors to monitor temperature, humidity, smoke and carbon dioxide levels inside.A motion sensor pings social workers so they know when a pod is being used. Workers can then offer assistance to the person using the shelter and ensure the pod is cleaned before it’s used again.The team is looking for cities to partner with as well as investigating means to manufacture the pods on a larger scale.

The Southern Hemisphere westerly winds affect the exchange of carbon dioxide between the ocean and atmosphere. Climate reconstructions from the southern mid-latitudes may reveal variability in the strength and position of the wind belt since the Last Glacial Maximum.
