Eventit Slams Claims that Leaving School Early Closes Doors to Future Learning

Sales and Marketing firm Eventit has spoken out after learning of a recent study, which claimed those that leave school at an early age are likely to never return to education or embark on professional training.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, July 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — A recent study by Mitchell Institute’s Counting the Costs of Lost Opportunity Report, it was found that young people who miss out on opportunities to reach their potential struggle to as adults to contribute to society and find success. The report tracked 25-44-year-olds from 2001-2014, with results showing that nearly 90% of men and 82% of women who left school early, never returned to study or training and as adults, still have no qualifications. 18% of early school leavers remained disengaged with education during their adult lives.

About Eventit: http://www.eventit.com.au/about-us/

The study suggests there are long term factors that can cause a person to leave education and the path that leads to a disengagement from learning begins at an early age, with certain segments of the population being most at risk. Health problems, family disruption and severe bullying can all have impacts on whether a young person completes their education.

Eventit agrees that some people struggle in the classroom environment, however, believe that this doesn’t mean that they are less equipped to find new ways of learning and success in the future. The firm offers opportunities to everyone; with no discrimination on academic performance, Eventit has worked with some early school leavers who have gone on to accomplish great success. The company believes that there are more important qualities than exam results and school qualifications; and because of this, less attention is made on academic skills and more is on the right type of attitude and personal characteristics. Plenty of successful business professionals have proven that success can come too, even to early school leavers.

The firm helps people to access learning in a way that works for them through mentoring and collaboration, plus allowing them to be in control of their progression. Eventit offer a unique Business Development Opportunity to people with different types of educational backgrounds and is a true believer that even if a person hasn’t done well or even completed school, this by no way means that they can make a success of their life or even learn new skills in their future.

The direct marketing specialist works with different clients to increase their brand awareness and customer base in specific target markets. By focussing on face-to-face and in-person communications, Eventit brings their client’s life-long customers with high levels of customer loyalty.

Tourico Vacations Reviews the Top Travel Complaints

Travel is meant to be relaxing however, too often, issues arise and cause more than a little stress. Being aware of travel complaints is an easy way to avoid these issues when you travel.

NEW YORK, NY, July 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Despite the fact that traveling for a vacation is a time most people use to get away from the stress of everyday life. For some, travel can lead to a lot of frustration and complaints. While travel complaints are quite common, working with a reputable travel company can minimize your risk of encountering some of the most common complaints.

It starts with the airlines – long lines to get through security checkpoints, flight delays and cancellations, paying extra for luggage and seating selections, and a lack of meals on flights are some of today’s major complaints regarding the airlines.

Buyers beware when purchasing all-inclusive vacations. The „pay one price and everything is included“ vacations can be deceptive and have led to numerous consumer complaints. Brochures often show exciting photos of people hang gliding, taking boat rides or scuba diving, making people believe that those things are all part of the package. When vacationers find out these are extras, it can be a huge disappointment. While many all-inclusive vacations are perfectly honest and legit, it’s always wise to read the fine print carefully and ask questions before booking.

The accommodations can also be a source of disappointment when rooms aren’t ready upon arrival, the bathrooms are dirty, the air conditioning is faulty, the hotel staff is unfriendly or unhelpful or the room isn’t as depicted or described on the website. Accommodations rank high when it comes to the top travel complaints.

Tourico Vacations is the first online booking engine, designed to provide our customers with exceptional insider prices on over 16,000 hotels, 2000 cruise itineraries, flights, car rentals, vacation packages, and attractions worldwide. In addition to travel services, Tourico Vacations recently introduced Condos, European and American homes a unique service offering accommodations at over 4500 luxury vacation condos worldwide by the week.

Yahoo! Employee Foundation Gives Parting Gift to Nationally Renowned Animal-Welfare Group Humane Society Silicon Valley

HSSV receives unrestricted gift of funding from the Yahoo! Employee Foundation

SAN JOSE, CA, July 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Acclaimed animal-welfare organization Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) has received a significant funding award from the Yahoo Employee Foundation. The award is a tremendous final gift from the Foundation, which is being dissolved as a result of Verizon’s purchase of Yahoo!.

HSSV plans to use the unrestricted funds to further their Paint a Better Future campaign for animals in need. The $55M campaign is in its final six months and its mission is to sustain and expand programs that:

– Prevent Unwanted Births: Reducing the number of incoming animals allows shelters to save more lives across a broader community.
– Treat & Rehabilitate: HSSV is committed to the care of Silicon Valley’s most at-risk pet populations.
– Find Homes: HSSV connects thousands of animals to thousands of people, enriching the lives of both.
– Keep Pets In Homes: HSSV provides resources to help keep animals with their loving families.
– Educate: HSSV’s education programs teach animal care, humane advocacy and compassion for all living beings.

The Yahoo! Employee Foundation has supported HSSV over the past several years, contributing funds to programs such a Regional Rescue and Portia’s Targeted Spay/Neuter Program. „We are tremendously grateful for the generosity of the Yahoo! Employee Foundation,“ says HSSV President, Carol Novello. „This gift has deeply touched the hearts of our employees and volunteers, and will have a significant impact on the many animal lives it will save.“

About Humane Society Silicon Valley: Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) is an independent, privately funded, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving people and pets for over 80 years. As an independent non-profit organization, HSSV does not receive funding from Humane Society of the United States, ASPCA or state and federal government entities. HSSV offers quality adoptions, affordable spaying/neutering, vaccinations, microchipping services, pet care services and education programs to enhance the human-animal bond. Established in 1929, HSSV has adopted more than 500,000 animals into permanent, loving homes. Animal welfare is their top priority and their mission is to save and enhance lives. In 2016, premier animal-welfare endowment group Maddie’s Fund granted Humane Society Silicon Valley and its President, Carol Novello, their newly created Maddie Hero Award, recognizing Carol and HSSV as innovative leaders in animal rescue. The award recognized nine organizations out of over 13,500 shelters and rescue groups in the country.

A Mission Without Borders

NASA’s Mission X: Train Like an Astronaut Project

HOUSTON, TX, July 20, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — It’s 4:00 in the morning in Oklahoma City. Miss Stewart stands in her backyard waiting for the ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut and NASA Mission X ambassador Thomas Pesquet to pass overhead aboard the International Space Station. All that hangs in the sky is the moon, and all that moves are her eyes as she scans for the International Space Station. Suddenly, she spots a bright light traveling overhead and points the camera at its trajectory.

„My whole class and I have been saying hello to Thomas as he has been flying over our heads,“ Stewart said.

Several miles away, her students have pulled their families out into their yards. Buttoned up in warm coats, they all greet Pesquet as the station soars overhead. The video transitions from student to student as they move back and forth between waving at the station and waving at the camera.

This video is one of hundreds that populate the Mission X: Train Like an Astronaut website. In the last six years, technology advances have placed NASA into rural and non-rural schools around the world. From teacher to student, from student to family, from post to repost, the Mission X project has been a result of crowdsourcing.

Originally designed to address the growing 21st-century concern regarding pediatric obesity, the program has evolved into a platform of international communication that has grown past merely health and fitness. As ESA astronaut and 2015 Mission X ambassador Samantha Cristoferetti said, „Your body is your spaceship for life.“

This year alone, 38 countries have united under the Mission X banner. With two challenges a year, one in the fall and one in the spring, nearly 105,000 total participants have contributed, step by step. This global mission counted the steps of children, the elderly and individuals with unique needs: a total of 498,372,000 steps from Earth to the moon, and 66,000 steps around the planet.

Tim Gushanas, lead software engineer within the Human Research Program team, is largely responsible for the online presence and interactive Web design of Mission X. His work has driven the expansion of the project across international borders, as the Mission X activities have become available in 19 different languages. The participants themselves shape the online world of Mission X, sharing their experiences along with tips and tricks. Gushanas credits the recent advancement in translation software as a major contributor to the project’s international success.

„The goal is to get countries communicating across borders,“ Gushanas said.

Mission X is a tool that is useful to an array of fields. It is relevant in science, technology, health, fitness and international partnerships, as the audience is universal.

One of the greatest attributes of the Mission X approach to technology is the project’s understanding of the environment in which it will be used. Considering distributors like YouTube might be blocked inside a school system, and noting the limitations of the Internet in international regions, all resources are designed with this in mind. Ultimately, Mission X activities are designed for print or mobile devices, moving the traditional classroom into the field.

A new development of the Mission X campaign across borders is the point-awarding system. This system creates an interactive interface where teachers, teams and schools from around the world can come into contact with other like-minded individuals.

For example, a classroom of students from rural Mexico left their hometown for the first time to Skype with students in Oklahoma. After the Boston bombing, students used the interface of the Mission X webpage to reach out with condolences. Teachers who come into contact with other teachers facilitate pen pals between classrooms.

Mission X gives children more than space–it exposes them to the world they share with other students of different cultures and backgrounds. It creates a universal language that prioritizes health of mind and body and a commitment to an international approach in reaching goals.

NASA’s Human Research Program (HRP) is dedicated to discovering the best methods and technologies to support safe, productive human space travel. HRP enables space exploration by reducing the risks to human health and performance using ground research facilities, the International Space Station and analog environments. This leads to the development and delivery of a program focused on: human health, performance and habitability standards; countermeasures and risk-mitigation solutions; and advanced habitability and medical-support technologies. HRP supports innovative, scientific human research by funding more than 300 research grants to respected universities, hospitals and NASA centers to over 200 researchers in more than 30 states.

Time to Say „Buh-Bye“ to the Big Guys says Virginia Vacation Rentals

A Bad Idea Takes on a Life of its Own

CHINCOTEAGUE, VA, July 20, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Just when vacation rental homeowners and guests thought it couldn’t get any worse, it did. Another national vacation rental home listing site, that many trusted and promoted, is rolling out its plan for the future and it doesn’t look good.

„We received the word last night that this site is going the way of the other national listing sites,“ said Bunnie Riedel, owner of the Virginia Vacation Rental site www.vavacationrentals.com. „We’re not sure what’s going on, whether they’ve sold to the big box listing site or are just adopting their tactics, but none of it is good.“

Homeowners listed on the free national site were informed that if they subscribed quickly the charge would be $199 a year until the site met its goal of subscriptions (undefined), then it would be $350 per year.

„We’re now hearing rumors that they will charge renters a booking fee and if they follow the formula, it will probably be somewhere between 9% to 15%,“ said Riedel. „There’s also rumors, yet unconfirmed, that the big sites will charge homeowners a per booking fee.“

Virginia Vacation Rentals is a statewide site and is joined by other statewide and regional sites going live across the country, each one independently owned and operated.

„As a vacation rental homeowner I have watched in horror at what the big boys have been doing,“ said Riedel. „I’ve had many conversations with vacation rental homeowners that count on that income for their retirement. These are people who’ve spent a lifetime thinking that what they were doing was investing in their future, and now that looks like it might evaporate and people are angry and afraid.“

To learn more about Virginia Vacation Rentals go to www.vavacationrentals.com. You can access other state/regional sites at http://www.vacationrentalbyowner.net/
