Northampton County leaders are hopeful that a new vocational training center could reinvigorate the region’s aging population and bring a younger generation to the rural county.

Community leaders announced the opening of the new facility earlier this week at a press conference in which they expressed concerns about the county’s future.

Census data shows the median age in Northampton is nearing 50 and increasing every year as the rural county has struggled to attract young people to settle there.

“As you’ve heard that the population ages, it means your workforce is aging,” said Franklin Williams, director of economic development for Northampton County. “And because the workforce is aging, it is difficult to fill positions in our local businesses. “

The vocational training center will be open to students of Northampton schools as well as adults in the area, and will offer cutting-edge certifications in a range of different jobs, including cosmetology, welding and electrical systems.

“Which means they won’t have to leave Northampton County, they can become employable and earn a viable and sustainable salary right here in our county,” said Williams.

WRAL News has moved into the new center, a former high school converted into a practical training laboratory.

Northampton County spent $ 841,000 in county funds and a grant to re-equip the center, in partnership with Roanoke-Chowan Community College.

More than 120 students had already applied for the chance to learn at the center in early December, and county leaders believed they were laying the groundwork for the future in Northampton.

“We’re putting things in place that are going to make a difference in your life, in the lives of your family, and to make sure you don’t have to leave Northampton County,” said Pamela Chamblee, former superintendent of Northampton County schools.

The first students are expected to start learning at the center in January.

Lieutenant Governor Adam Gregg listens to a presentation from representatives of Iowa Central Community College on the Second Chance Pell Grant program used to help inmates at Fort Dodge Correctional Facility obtain college credit.

Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg visited Fort Dodge Correctional Facility Tuesday morning to learn about the current education system offered at the prison in partnership with Iowa Central Community College.

Gregg met with representatives from the facility, the Iowa Corrections, and the college.

Dean of Business and Industrial Technology Neale Adams explained their use of the 2016 Second Chance Pell Grant to fund inmate education.

“In the beginning, we started with a lot of different programs, and these have evolved over time depending on the facilities available. We have had enormous academic success with our students ”, Adams said.

He also said that the facilities they currently use are limited.

The Director of Adult Education and Literacy, Abby Underberg, also serves as the Correctional Education Liaison.

“Between Neale and I, we started the program without really knowing what we were doing. It’s really a long way from where we started, but there is so much more we could potentially do. That’s why we’re here today, to talk about opportunities and how we can grow and provide better opportunities and better pathways for students as well ”, she said.

Iowa Central President Jesse Ulrich said he is often asked what Iowa Central can do to help the workforce and train more workers.

“These people here are busy, productive and preparing to re-enter society. When they have a degree in their pocket and jobs ready to go, they will be more successful once they leave the institution and hopefully not have to come back ”, he said. “This program also helps our workforce with a flow of workers.”

Ulrich cited a case where a company recently argued at a hearing for an inmate to be granted parole because he was a great worker for their company.

Iowa Central Vice President of Government Affairs Jim Kersten said: “The college has mobilized over $ 2.1 million in Second Chance Pell Grants to cover the cost of servicing 760 incarcerated students from 2016 to present.”

Additionally, through a grant, Iowa Central is working on the implementation of several people across the state to serve as Correctional Education Navigators statewide. These navigators will provide advice to inmates who are either released or transferred to another institution and who wish to continue their education.

Gregg said he is very interested in this program as he heads the FOCUS Committee on Criminal Justice Reform.

“One of the things that we have looked at through this committee is how we can improve the reintegration process for those who leave prison. So programs like the Second Chance Pell Scholarship help us make sure that we prepare people for success when they leave prison ”, he said.

Gregg was presented with ideas of an expansion to the Fort Dodge Correctional Facility that would consist of an industrial training center building to serve more inmate students. After touring the grounds and current educational facilities, said Gregg.

“It has been very helpful to understand the space they are working in and they have ideas and ideas for potential expansion. This is something that I will report to the Governor for her review as we make budget decisions and prioritize some of the federal dollars available to our state. “

TARRYTOWN, NY – The clip that hit the internet and various highlights on Friday night featured Rangers star Artemi Panarin throwing his gauntlet at Bruins instigator Brad Marchand.

It quickly turned into a GIF that elicited countless laughs, with Panarin seeing the humor in it as well. But as the 30-year-old forward explained after Saturday’s practice at MSG training center, the incident was due to Marchand going personal and pushing his trash too far.

“I didn’t quite understand what he said at the time because we had a little conversation with bad energy,” said Panarin. “Then I hear something about Russia at that point, and then with that energy, it can’t be something good about Russia. That’s why I lose my mind and I did what I did. “

A person familiar with the situation told lohud.com, which is part of the USA TODAY Network, that Marchand struck a chord with Panarin by raising unfounded assault allegations made against him by former KHL coach Andrei. Nazarov in February. He was accused of beating a young woman in 2011, but the charges were largely dispelled and were allegedly politically motivated.

Occupational health and safety

If employees are to maximize their abilities and potential, they must be in good physical and mental health and be able to work in a safe and comfortable environment. The Nichirei Group sees its employees as irreplaceable and works with them to create safe, open and invigorating workplaces.

Health management initiatives

■ Basic policy

  1. We will promote the creation of a vibrant workplace where workers and management cooperate, based on the ideal that good work is based on a healthy mind and body.
  2. Each of our employees will work hard to increase their health awareness and play an active role in creating a work environment that promotes good health.
  3. We will strive to manage health on the basis of the three pillars “maintaining and improving health”, “mental health measures” and “safety and hygiene control”.

■ Management framework

■ Main initiatives for fiscal year 2021

• Countermeasures against COVID-19

In cooperation with the Group Risk Management Office, the Occupational Health staff of the Health Promotion Center have established a support system to provide appropriate counseling, prevent the spread of COVID-19, and prevent discrimination. against people in the event that an employee contracts COVID-19.

  • 100% health Control rate and improvement of post-examination follow-up

In 2020 and 2021, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, all employees performed annual health checks. In addition, as part of the post-examination follow-up system, people determined by an occupational physician as requiring additional support were interviewed remotely by public health nurses, where appropriate, using a email or other online tools. Employees who score a D on their health exams and choose to undergo detailed exams are eligible for a grant program as members of the Nichirei Health Insurance Association.

• Health-related events

Since fiscal year 2017, the Nichirei Group has been organizing health-related events on a regular basis, providing employees with specific health promotion opportunities and helping them to avoid lifestyle-related illnesses. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we hosted events on topics such as proper exercise, improving sleep patterns, and mental health. In the questionnaires, over 92% of participants in each event responded that the event was beneficial.

Health and Safety Committee

https://nichirei.disclosure.site/en/themes/184

Nichirei Group has established health and safety committees to meet the requirements of Japan’s Occupational Safety and Health Law and strives to promote health and safety management aimed at preventing accidents. work and manage the health of employees. At our head office, as well as in each branch, we strive to eliminate long working hours and reduce overtime, while in food factories and cold stores, we do our best to prevent accidents. This is in addition to other work environment improvement efforts we undertake, tailored to the conditions of each workplace.

Launch of Safety and Quality training using VR

In fiscal year 2022, Nichirei Logistics Group began using virtual reality (VR) for safety and quality training at its logistics work sites.

  • So far, practical training has been implemented through courses using a refrigerated warehouse model in some training centers (safety and quality training centers). This made it difficult for employees stationed away from

to participate. It was also difficult for the trainees to imagine what accidents could happen if the rules or manuals were not followed correctly.

  • With the introduction of a new tool that uses VR technology, employees can effectively learn good work procedures without having to attend a safety and quality training center. They can also experience virtual simulations of accidents that can occur as a result of unsafe behavior. This has led to further improvement in security awareness.

Food factory safety

Nichirei Foods has identified three priority actions for food factory safety-related activities: safety patrols, near-accident activities, and mandatory compliance with safety rules.

Monthly security patrols are tailored to each plant, with effective checklist items determined based on site feedback. Patrols are carried out mainly early in the morning and late at night, when there are fewer personnel. We also ask employees to share work-related issues and opinions.

  • Held as needed, Near-miss activities are designed to strengthen reporting practices and educate employees about possible hazards through the sharing of near-miss accident information. Activities reconfirm the assessment criteria, thus ensuring consistency in methodologies for classifying an incident as a near miss. Preventive measures are then taken as needed.

Occupational health and safety initiatives for foreign technical trainees

Foreign technical trainees working in Japan within the Nichirei group undergo training including training in occupational health and safety. This helps prevent accidents at work and makes it easier to manage the health of those adjusting to life in another country, while helping them improve their Japanese language skills. Our goal is to create workplaces where all Nichirei Group employees can work safely and healthily with a specific purpose.

Among the fine dining and luxury boutiques of downtown Greenwich stands a new epicenter of table tennis.

CRUSH, a state-of-the-art table tennis center, opened to the public with two floors filled with table tennis equipment spread over 6,000 square feet of space with four different areas for guests. the tables come with LED lights and rackets and balls certified by the International Table Tennis Federation.

Additionally, the upstairs part of the property has been converted into a seating area with leather armchairs, TVs, beer and wine, which owner Michael Tolle says can be used for parties. private.


According to Tolle, the project has been underway since early 2019, when speaking with Katie DeLuca, Greenwich’s Planning and Zoning Director, about the conversion of the space at 255 Field Point Road, which previously served as an industrial facility. slight.

“It’s about bringing an activity open to the public,” Tolle said, adding that he wanted to provide “high quality equipment” to appease both professionals and first-time visitors.

Tolle has even hired competitive level international coaches at his facility to help train anyone looking to hone their table tennis skills. According to Tolle, this is one of the most requested services so far at CRUSH.

“Frankly, training has been, since the start of the year, one of the most sought-after services because people are [more] comfortable one-on-one, more than with groups of people, ”said Tolle.

After a number of setbacks from the pandemic, CRUSH officially opened earlier this year and the table tennis center opened to the public in late September.

A candidate for governor of Venezuela has promised to offer scholarships to citizens interested in joining the Technical Training Center for Mining and Administration of Digital Crypto Assets.

José Alejandro Terán, the aspiring governor who represents the country’s ruling party, launched the initiative under the La Guaira Digital program, which aims to accelerate growth and induce economic stability in the country.

As Cointelegraph Spanish reported, the Terán Training Center will provide specialist training for fellows on Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), Crypto Mining and Trading. In addition, the campaign will be supported by four entities, namely the National Superintendence of Crypto-Assets (SUNACRIP), the Axie Infinity Academy, the political group Independientes con Terán and the youth of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (JPsuv).

In addition to the scholarship initiatives for learning crypto, the candidate for governor envisions the generation of “thousand jobs” through this proposal:

“I think that by helping young people to create multiple sources, we ensure the economic stability of their families. 1000 jobs in a year, note it!

Terán also promised that the training, powered by the Axie Infinity Academy, will include installation and repair of networks and cryptocurrency mining and crypto trading. According to data provided by Chainalysis, Venezuela is the seventh country in the global crypto adoption index.

Related: Latin America Expected To Benefit Most From Crypto, Uphold Executive Says

The CEO of crypto investment platform Uphold, JP Thieriot, recently spoke to Cointelegraph about the growing Bitcoin-based use cases for the Latin American market.

According to the entrepreneur, the adoption of Bitcoin (BTC) by El Salvador has had a domino effect by accelerating the adoption of crypto in surrounding regions, notably Venezuela and Colombia.

Thieriot also believes that adopting crypto makes more sense for small economies instead of creating an internal central bank digital currency (CBDC).
