The case of hunting

SIR – I disagree with Arthur Bayley’s suggestion (Letters, January 16) that there is no moral justification for hunting and killing animals with dogs for sport and pleasure.

For many, the various forms of hunting are both necessary and enjoyable. Many people enjoy shooting, stalking, angling, snooping, raking, and falconry. However, sportsmen do not like to inflict cruelty on their prey, and to suggest otherwise is unfair and inaccurate.

Those who oppose country sports are often selective about which ones they want to ban, and as a result their beliefs and demands are inconsistent.

James Mulleneux
Wadhurst, East Sussex

SIR – When fox hunting was still legal, a research project was undertaken in which each fox killed by a particular hunt was sent to a laboratory to establish how it died.

In each case, the fox was found to have died instantly following a bite on the back of the neck by the lead dog; all wounds to the body had been inflicted after the death of the fox. Tearing dead meat is not cruel.

Hunting must be better than the current situation, where so many foxes are being shot and injured. It is very difficult to take down such a small, fast-moving target – and so the animals move away and die slowly.

Few who hunt have ever been close enough to the front of the hunt to see a fox dispatched, so it is a myth to claim that enjoying such a sight is the reason for the hunt. Those who oppose it do not object to the depiction of wild predation in wildlife television programs, which are considered family entertainment.

political earthquake

SIR – Your second feature article (January 16) suggested that to avoid a collision with an asteroid emerging from one of Earth’s “blind spots” one should consider moving “the planet a few centimeters to the left”.

No, we’ve already gone too far to the left. Let’s move it to the right.

Sir Michael Ferguson Davie
Bath, Somerset

Objective of HS2

SIR – Keith Forsdick and Keith Whittaker (Letters, January 16) are wrong to claim that the original justification for HS2 was not based on capacity.

Following HS2 Ltd’s options report, the order document issued by the Department for Transport in March 2010 stated: “1. That over the next 20 to 30 years the UK will need radical change transport capacity between its largest and most productive agglomerations, both to facilitate and accommodate long-term economic growth; 2. That alongside this additional capacity there are real benefits for the economy and for passengers from improving journey times and therefore the UK’s connectivity.

Mike King
Crawley, West Sussex

SIR – Last week’s letters summarized why HS2 should be frozen.

Also, claims by HS2 management that speeds of 250 mph will be achieved need to be looked into. On a trip of just 100 miles, how long will you spend at over 200 mph, and what levels of acceleration and braking will passengers be subjected to?

The sunk cost of this project is still low compared to the final estimate.

Ian Simcock
East Grinstead, West Sussex

What the Romans did

SIR – Allow me to put into context the guilt aroused with regard to the British Empire and the “evils” of colonialism.

The invasion in 55 BC. BC and subsequent colonization of Britain was the best thing that ever happened to this country. Before the arrival of the Romans, the people here were hide-clad hunter-gatherers, with social discipline imposed according to the will of the fittest.

As I drive along Ermine Street and the Fosse Way, I salute what the Romans left us. More so during my career as an English lawyer, when I learned the value of the rule of law as a concept – originally introduced here during around 450 years of Roman settlement. Oh, and the Romans also brought us Christianity. Not everyone’s cup of tea, I agree, but the bedrock of British culture.

Everything that the Romans brought to us as recipients of Pax Romana, we then brought to many parts of the globe as Pax Britannica. We walked on worthy steps.

“A key part of tutoring is that social connection with a caring adult,” said Amanda Neitzel, assistant scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Educational Research and Reform. “How can you create this in an online format?”

Her concern, she added, was that the federal push for tutoring would amount to “a costly disaster.”

Virtual tutoring is a big business opportunity for the edtech industry. According to market research of Reach Capital, a venture capital firm specializing in education.

Now some online tutoring start-ups get half of their new business from federal funds, according to Reach partner James Kim. Districts typically pay $1 to $100 per student who will use tutoring services over the course of a year.

Educational technology investors and entrepreneurs say the academic and social failures of distance schooling have little to do with the services these companies offer. They point out that their platforms are meant to complement in-person education, not replace it, and that being able to get a tutor anytime, from anywhere has benefits.

“Online tutoring is one-on-one communication,” said Myles Hunter, chief executive of TutorMe, which pairs students with tutors — mostly recent college graduates — via audio, video or instant messaging. “It’s not something where you’re trying to make sure 40 college students don’t fall asleep watching a Zoom video for eight hours a day.”

Nevertheless, Mr. Kim, a former teacher, understood the doubts.

“I think the cynicism is justified,” he said. “I’ve been offered a lot of tech products that just didn’t belong in my classroom. Especially during this pandemic where there was a lot of money in this market, we have seen people looking to make a quick buck.

Some cities and states — like Chicago, New Mexico and Arkansas — are launching a body of in-person tutors. But hiring has been difficult due to labor shortages, a key reason district leaders said they are turning to online tutoring.

The Ministry of Education has taken the initiative to appoint 38,000 teachers while the audit is underway.

The ministry made the decision at a meeting recently. According to the decision, by continuing the verification, recommendations will be given for the appointment of these teachers. The ministry has already sent a letter to the non-governmental Teacher Registration and Certification Authority (NTRCA) to implement the decision.

After receiving the letter, the NTRCA held a meeting in the presence of its president.

Regarding the decision of their meeting, NTRCA Secretary Md Obaidur Rahman told risebd that the Ministry of Education has given the directive that we will send recommendation letters to all soon.

In response to a question, he said the police special branch has completed all verification activities. Teachers need not worry because after a person is nominated, if anything wrong is found against the person during the police check, the appointment will only be cancelled.

In response to another question, the secretary of the NTRCA said that the two agencies – SB and NSI – will carry out the verification activities.

Police verification activities are underway for teachers who have received an initial recommendation for recruitment to non-governmental educational institutions. Due to the large number of teachers, verification takes time. That is why such a decision was taken, he said.

It has been learned that the NTRCA issued a public notice on March 30 last year for the appointment of more than 54,000 teachers in non-governmental educational institutions.

Due to the non-receipt of applications and the lack of qualified candidates in the female quota, the NTRCA initially recommended appointing 38,286 people excluding 15,325 positions.

A group of facts-verification The organizations called on YouTube to do more to tackle misinformation about the video service.

More than 80 organizations around the world have published an open letter to YouTube chief Susan Wojcicki. In it, they accused YouTube of being “one of the main ducts disinformation and misinformation online around the world. YouTube is owned by Alphabet Inc., the parent company of Google.

The groups said YouTube management could do a lot more to reduce the spread of misinformation. “What we don’t see is a lot of effort from YouTube to enforce policies that solve the problem,” the letter reads.

By not taking effective measures, the video service allows itself to be “militarized” by individuals seeking to “to manipulate and featothers, adds the letter.

Fact-checking organizations have offered to help YouTube fight the publication of false information. They said they were uniquely equipped to help because of their experience in fact-checking and countering misinformation around the world. They are all members of the International Fact Checking Network.

The groups said presenting people with verified information is more effective than simply removing fake content.

The letter says the problem is particularly difficult in non-English speaking countries and in the southern half of the world.

The groups urged YouTube to focus on providing the context and verified information that can be clearly seen on the videos. They also called on YouTube to take action against repeat offenders and to step up efforts to fight misinformation in languages ​​other than English.

In a statement, YouTube spokeswoman Elena Hernandez defended the company’s policies. She said YouTube spends a lot on such efforts around the world and seeks to connect people to “authoritative contents.”

Hernandez called fact-checking an important tool “to help viewers make their own informed decisions” about what they watch. But she added that such efforts are only “one piece of a much bigger picture. puzzlewhich aims to limit the spread of misinformation.

Letter to the Editor

On Wednesday evening, Conservative Party Cabinet Minister Jacob Rees-Mogg called Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross ‘lighthearted’ after he called on Boris Johnson to quit at the Downing Street drinks event during the lockdown.

Let’s be fair to even that pair of arrogant Tory Toffs, Rees-Mogg and Johnson – are they after all only the authentic voice of most provincial English Tory Brexiteers today?

Just look at the polls which showed that most English Tory voters put Brexit ahead of Union with Scots or with Ulster.

The newsletter mute the noise

So why should most Scots – or most Ulsterers (and most voters in every region who rejected Brexit) want a permanent union with (or no longer really under) English Tories who don’t clearly do not want?

Or respect them? Or who do not share their commitment to the EU? Or to a regulated social market economy?

Is it now time to recognize that the Union has been killed – by English provincial conservative ultra-nationalism – and to start really thinking outside the box? The South, like Ulster and Scots, wants to be in the EU – and we have a lot in common too (although not with English Tory Brexiteer toffs) so it’s time to explore a Scottish-Ulster-tripartite very loose Irish Confederation — within the European Union?

The Padhe Bharat campaign aims to bring reading fluency to first generation learners which started on January 1, 2022. The campaign aims to instill a reading habit in students to help them improve their vocabulary, critical thinking and learning skills. enrich them with creative ideas. The top five books that were recommended for reading are; Atomic Habits by James Clear, Little Book of Happiness by Ruskin Bond, Reflection by Swami Vivekanada, Chilika by KR Ray and Atonement by FM Senapati.

Speaking to Education Times, Bonny Bhansali, director of Green Acers Academy, Mumbai, which will start implementing this program from January 10, said: “The Padhe Bharat campaign would help first generation learners in their providing exposure to an environment to master reading English and other regional languages ​​even when they are at home. Thanks to this campaign, the pupils will also develop a taste for the English language which will be a motivating factor for them.

Congratulations!

Last year, in July, we organized a Language and Literacy Week for all of our students and planned activities to develop English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. It is a good thing that this campaign is focusing on the students of the preparatory classes for the VIII class as these are the formative years to develop the language skills of the students. Consistency and consistency of reading over 100 days will lead to a solid linguistic base. Reading promotes creativity, vocabulary, critical thinking, and if carefully aligned with several focused thinking activities, it will have maximum positive impact. “The ability to read is a springboard for mastering spoken English. For example, having students interpret how the character feels when reading a particular book or even predict what will happen next in the story. This activates their curiosity which serves the very purpose of teaching. We plan to share an article on the Google class on the Ministry of Education’s Padhe Bharat initiative and will also share a list of recommended books, ”he adds.

Kuldeep Singh, Principal of Government Boys Senior Secondary School (GBSSS) Number 1, Adarsh ​​Nagar, says: “First generation learners have difficulty identifying alphabets and words. Teachers remain focused on completing the curriculum and content that has been written in the textbook without developing students’ reading skills.

Shanti Krishnamurthy, Director of the Central Chinmaya Mission Trust Education Cell, Coimbatore, said: “We will implement this initiative in all of our schools. Reading is a progressive pastime that enhances creativity, sensitivity and imagination. This habit is best formed during the elementary years in a student’s life.

Put money here
Here’s a suggestion for the government – drop the plan to demolish the 20-year-old Anzac Hall in Canberra and cancel the proposed $ 500 million to extend the Australian War Memorial. Budget savings could be redirected towards supplying the population with rapid antigenic tests. There might even be money left.

Degrees of importance
Why is there so much coverage from Novak Djokovic? He behaves like a spoiled and spoiled kid. And if he’s a sports star, is he more worthy than any other human being? Is her own sense of ego our job to keep stroking? There are more important things to occupy thinking minds.
Nicola Katherine, Cheltenham

Confused in those days
Thanks to Sean Kelly (Commentary, 10/1) for highlighting the current atmosphere: oscillating between anxiety, vigilance and guarded indifference. It is reassuring that I am not alone in my dismay.
Joe Wilder, North Caulfield

Dutton’s mistaken view
Given the Morrison government’s dismal response to mistreatment of women, you would have thought it would try to keep a low profile on the subject. Not Peter Dutton however, he has floundered in the argument accusing Australian celebrities of not publicly supporting tennis player Peng Shuai (″ ⁣ Minister takes aim at celebrity silence on women in China ″ ⁣, 10 / 1). If Mr Dutton is to tackle abuse, maybe he could start in his own party or maybe he could tackle the issue of refugees, some locked up for almost a decade for committing no crime.
Ross Hudson, Mount Martha

Or maybe it isn’t
Some Australian women’s rights activists are unable to fully support Peter Dutton in highlighting the treatment of women in China.
Claiming, as Blair Williams of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership does, that Australia must “get her own house in order before she lectures others” implies that only nations with a perfect human rights record. man can never comment on the practices of other nations. Further, Williams’ reference to Parliament’s toxic work culture seems an unnecessary distraction from the scale of the problems in China the defense minister is referring to.
All Australian women’s rights advocates, regardless of national political differences, should be ready to support Mr Dutton’s appeal.
Rod Wise, Surrey Hills

Irony galore
Oh the irony: Peter Dutton urges celebrities and athletes to call attention to China’s treatment of women. What about its own government’s treatment of women (and men) in detention, for example, the woman Biloela and her two daughters.
Anne Smith, Dookie

Shameless man
Isn’t Peter Dutton ashamed? How can he criticize China for its treatment of women when he should first address the treatment of women in parliament and in the defense forces.
Dean Virgin, Strathmore

Where are the men ?
Peter Dutton, it’s not just “feminists in the West” who should pay more attention to women’s rights in China. Men and especially leaders should lead the outcry and outcry. To be safe is a woman’s right and the responsibility rests with all of us, feminists are tired of being the gatekeepers of the standards that men should follow.

Prime Minister of Trump
From the number of letters, it appears that a lack of government leadership is at the heart of our woes. From the chaos of COVID to the Djokovic debacle, it seems the Prime Minister has drawn the curtains and decided to just take a break from the duties and responsibilities expected of him. With each passing day he reminds me a little more of a Trumpian-style head of state: he wanted the title, the power, and constant media attention, but as for the job itself, has little interest or ability to do the actual work. obligatory.
Joyce Boucher, Williamstown

Stop them
Chris Sidoti (Commentary, 10/1) brilliantly summed up the irresponsibility of Prime Minister Scott Morrison and NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet in their handling of vaccinations and children. In any other workplace, they would be dismissed for incompetence.
Ian Todd, Léongatha

Not the best of times
It’s no one’s fault, but schools are petri dishes at the best of times. These are not the best times. The start of the school year should not be a victim of political interests and should be undertaken in full accordance with the public health advice of the time. No half-measures, no ambiguity.
Claire Merry, Wantirna

Character test
Give me the final session of the fifth day of the enthralling Sydney Test raffle against all BBL circus games. From bowling hand grenades to English tail ends with every outfield within two yards of heroic English hitters made for striking viewing. There were fast bowling veterans Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad who saved the game with their sticks uncertain, not the ball. A test of character, determination and self-confidence. Bring Hobart!
Nick Toovey, Beaumaris

Limit alcohol
Darshak Mehta (10/1) bemoans the racist, abusive and generally shameful behavior of some predominantly young and drunken cricket men. While eliminating racism and stupidity is a long and difficult project, it would be quite simple to limit the alcohol that fuels them by limiting the sale of alcohol to lunch and tea breaks and allowing only two purchases at a time per anybody.
Rosemary Kiss, Rippleside

I can’t close the door
What does “freedom” look like when people all around are suffering from COVID? Answer: People less willing to take the risk of visiting public places and a less productive economy. It is too late to close the door.
Robert Edmonds, Diamond Creek

Home education
It is incorrect to say that Victorian children missed 200 days of schooling (Editorial, 10/1). They were home schooled with the support of teachers and caregivers during lockdowns. Students who needed to go to school could. The dangers of catching the virus for teachers and students must be at the fore in any parent’s decision to send their child to school.
Julie Carrick, Leopold

Simple answer
In the case of Novak Djokovic’s medical exemption, Judge Anthony Kelly asked, “What more could he have done? The answer to this question is that he could have been vaccinated and avoided all this dilemma.
James O’Keefe, East Melbourne

AND SOMETHING ELSE

Djokovic
When the Queen observed the law to sit alone at her husband’s funeral, why should Novak Djokovic be given a special privilege?
Alastair Pritchard, Templestowe

What is Mitt Romney’s Child Tax Credit Proposal?

The People’s Policy Project has published a new article claiming that the Child tax credit The proposal put forward by Mitt Romney is an improvement on Biden’s plan. The Romney CTC would go to the poorest children, is more important throughout the child’s life, and could overcome some logistical hurdles in distributing payments, as the onus would fall on the Social Security Administration, instead of the Social Security Administration. IRS.

Romney made this proposal in February 2020, but eventually a different version was added to the US bailout. After negotiations on the Build Back Better bill failed, Romney renewed his efforts to get his credit passed as a stand-alone bill. Researcher Matt Bruenig also noted that Romney’s credit would start distributing payments while women are at least four months pregnant, meaning the proposal includes a maternity grant that could help families prepare for. the arrival of their child.

“In the four months before birthThe Romney plan pays parents $ 350 per month, for a total of $ 1,400. The current CLC does not provide cash before birth and in fact does not provide its first cash payment until the year after a child is born, ”writes Bruenig.

Zhang describes the first time she set foot on American soil, when she was only eight years old. At the time, she spoke very little English and only knew her alphabet up to the letter h. She said she learned about it on the plane. However, she learned quickly and followed in her father’s footsteps.

She rose through the engineering ranks at Ford and eventually became the chief engineer tasked with electrifying the world’s best-selling pickup truck, the Ford F-150 Lightning.

“I’m just happy that I can play a part in this truck,” Zhang said. “For me there are a lot of great engineers, a lot of great people across the company who have been really involved in making this product. It’s great to be in the role I’m in. Being able to see everything, but I’m just one part of a much bigger picture.

The truck has a volume of 400 liters and a payload of 400 pounds. In addition to being all electric, the vehicle has so many new features.

The interior of the vehicle is very spacious, and it has tons of technology with a nice 15 inch screen. It’s your average truck but with a twist.

Under the hood of the truck is a trunk. The engineer replaced the engine with storage space that could hold two golf bags. If golf isn’t your game, under the flap is a tailgate that accommodates wet and dirty items. The tailgate has a drain inside to fill with ice.

The cabin also has electrical outlets that provide cold power to a TV, an electric pot, or your entire home should the worst get worse.

If that’s not impressive enough, the truck goes from zero to 60 in just under five seconds.

Zhang thinks her good friends Henry Ford and Thomas Edison would be excited about what she helped create.

“I think they would be excited,” Zhang said. “I mean, at the time Henry Ford actually considered trying to electrify the Model T. So for us we’re taking his dream and now with the technologies we have, we’re bringing it to the to like.”

Speaking of dreams; It is a dream come true for Zhang. What she’s accomplished in a male-dominated industry is impressive. But that’s not something she spends a lot of time thinking about.

“It’s kind of fun,” Zhang said. “I haven’t really thought about it too much. For me, seeing a lot of feedback there has been really rewarding knowing that I’m making an impact on the little girls there, and my advice would be to just pursue what you love, because that’s what I do. ‘have done. I love engineering, and I love business, and I love automotive, so for me it was just chasing my dreams so you can do it too.
