Paper published

September 1, 2020. One of our graduates, Syeda Shahper, has published another paper, titled Praise and Beauty of Islamic Heritage “Mosque’s architecture and decorative designs”, in Academia.edu Summary: Islamic architecture has a wide range of secular and religious buildings from the early history of Islam to the present day. Islamic architecture is influenced from the other lands which they conquered. These historical buildings are the symbol of Islamic greatness and glory. These buildings have a wide range, but the significance of Mosque is undeniable. From the beginning of Islam, the institution of Mosque has been playing the central role in the Muslim community. The rise of the architecture work started with the rule of Mughal in subcontinent, which has no fall till now a day. The Wazir Khan Mosque situated in Lahore Punjab Pakistan is a masterpiece of Mughal era. In his architecture we see civil engineering and fine arts are combined. After the 500 years of his completion it is, as it. It’s a complete school of design. ...

Another book published

September 15, 2020. One of our graduates, Esther Coronel de Iberkleid, has published another book called, Guide of how to improve the performance of employees in companies: Aimed at entrepreneurs, micro entrepreneurs, small, medium and large companies and authorities (Spanish Edition) on Amazon. Summary: After 30 years of work, related to different companies, I realized that there was a background that could serve other entrepreneurs to take advantage of it, derived from my work experience both in my own company and in other companies. For years I heard that entrepreneurs had many problems caused by the so-called “high turnover of staff”, which represented huge expenses. In addition, they were very frustrated that no attention was paid to training and training that also represented a high cost to companies, but did not finish solving problems. I wondered why and in specific cases I helped resolve several issues successfully. I realized that there was, at first, a clear methodology for training and training employees in specific areas. There were companies where new employees were told to look and learn to replicate it. ...

Student Testimonials

Michael Ogunfowora
Master of Strategic Management and Leadership
August 17, 2020

“I had a unique experience of studying at Atlantic International University, it afforded me an opportunity to work and study at my pace. I was able to complete work based on schedule agreed with my tutor and faculty. Support at getting clarifications regarding my transfer courses and guidance with my thesis were exceptional. I was able to keep my full-time job of leading an operations team in a telecommunication real estate industry while I completed my graduate program at AIU. From financial standpoint, I was able to negotiate flexible payment of my tuition fees based on my ability to pay. This again afforded me an opportunity to achieve balance with my finances while keeping expense at an affordable level. The learnings acquired throughout the coursework leading to an award of Masters in Strategic Management and Leadership will spur me on to develop appropriate skills at becoming an effective and successful.
Orinthia Fisher-Howe
Doctor of Strategic Management
August 17, 2020

“I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with AIU as it afforded me the opportunity to learn without limit. This was brought on due to the fact that I was able to pick my courses and learn at my own pace which was quite unusual with my other studies, but I witnessed its effectiveness. The monthly submission deadline forced me to ensure that I complete my course of study within the stipulated time, as I was determined to avoid the payment penalties applicable, due to financial constraints. This strategy helped to guide me in developing my planning and organizational skills from which I was able to balance work, family and my studies easily. The hardest part of the course, in my view, was the preparation of the thesis as at times I was not sure whether I was on the right path, which was scary at times. My supervisor, Dr. Edwards, provided me with monthly guidance that reassured me positively, which aid my completion wholeheartedly. Now that I have completed my studies I feel empowered, more knowledgeable and ... Read full text: https://www.aiu.edu/Testimonialdetail. html?ItemID=1652&rcid=73&pcid=63&cid=73

“First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincerely thanks for getting chance to study at Atlantic International University. I also give thanks to my teachers who led and guided me well during my studies. I came to realize that AIU is among the best university that offered different course through distance learning of which it gives more chances to all people regardless of their ages gape. When I studied the Atlantic International University I managed to obtain knowledge and skills about how to manage the resources accordingly in order to bring positive results to the organization. The proper selection of human resource will determine either failure or increase the performance of the organization. This is very important area when you think about recruiting the staffs in your organization. The course also helped me to understand the procedures for solving the problem especially when you are dealing with conflict management in any organization.

Shawn Jagnandan
Master of Mathematics
September 1, 2020

“My overall experience at the Atlantic International University (AIU) has been a truly amazing one. I had many wonderful experiences in the two-year period of my studies. It is sad how my time as a student at AIU has gone by quickly as I am still discovering all the opportunities that university has to offer. AIU is a very welcoming place, and from the very first day I felt that I made the right choice of applying to pursue a Master of Science Degree in Mathematics with this institution. My courses were great and I enjoyed every one of them, especially the pure mathematics courses. In studying at AIU, I have gained specialized knowledge to advance in the field of Mathematics. Sometimes completing the course loads were challenging but at the same time it was very satisfying when I was awarded good grades. I was also privileged to work with the most accommodating and supportive tutor and academic supervisor when doing my research thesis. ...

Cybersecurity:

moral responsibility in the digital space COMMUNICATING I N S O C I A L NETWORKS



With the ease of access to the Internet, a new mode of communication, has developed which is the platform of social networks. They have a real hold on their members whose figures amount to around 1.5 billion. As surprising as it seems, with web 2.0 which makes it very easy to share a good amount of personal data, the use of the Internet is a legal framework that protects privacy. Benoît Sillard (2011, 201) expresses “fears of control by all by all”, in an environment where social digitalization is very accelerated. The context of the web, with its 1 billion 200 million Internet users connected to the only social network Facebook, which alone represents “a virtual continent” according to Guy de Felcourt (2011, 50) with more than 175 million tweets that are posted every day! The places of connection to social networks are increasing with cars connected by wifi to the Internet and public spaces now having free access connections Internet users, who are often characterized by belonging to more than one of these social networks, are more exposed to infringements of their rights because of the entertainment of interactions in various digital spaces. These attacks are more a result of human vulnerability than security breaches, conducive to identity theft. It is at this time that the problem of regulation arises which seems to be a sector not sufficiently equipped for the repression of the accused, It is more than imperative to make a legal education which frames the freedom of expression on the net

The notion of responsibility in relation to the acts performed must be the center of reflection for the users of these spaces of free expression. The law in its role must define the contours of the acceptable and the unacceptable within the framework of this new culture of social ties. Will it not be useful to already define the framework of responsibility in the use of digital spaces? What are the legal approaches related to Internet law, on the one hand to the protection of privacy, on the other to the protection of personal data and finally to the security of systems and data? What charter should govern the use of social networks for a framework for the use of social media?

Body of Assignment Before we get to the heart of the matter it is important to define the key terms which constitute the basis for this reflection.

A digital space: It means an integrated set of digital services chosen and made available to all stakeholders in a community within a framework of trust defined by a master plan. It constitutes a unified entry point allowing the user to access, depending on their profile and level of authorization, their digital content and services. It offers a place of exchange and collaboration between its users, and with other communities in relation to the school or the establishment. (Wikipedia) Or: a digital space is the online service accessible from any browser connected to the Internet which assembles the digital services adapted to the categories of users: get information, produce information, consult resources, organize your work, communicate, work alone or in a group, learn, support the education of your children. (Wikipedia) A network is a set of interconnected objects brought together by their information exchanges.

A social network: It is more specifically a set of individuals and organizations linked by social interactions, during collaborative processes. (Popular definition) Moral responsibility. It is the need for a person to answer for his intentions and his actions before his conscience.

the use of digital spaces As much as the digital space is meant to be a space for free expression, there are also drifts due to the misuse of certain, going so far as to commit acts reprehensible by law. Only it happens to be that the digital space presents according to certain countries gaps which give free rein to a debauchery which is synonymous with real crime. Cybersecurity frames the domain of freedoms in the digital space, except that this hidden freedom behind pseudonyms is transformed into a cyber crime which seriously harms the privacy of other internet users. This is how it is important to convene the concept of legal responsibility when any activity aimed at tarnishing the image of a third party, a State, a company in the digital space.

Legal approaches related to Internet law On the one hand to the protection of privacy, on the other to the protection of personal data and finally to the security of systems and data Some avant-garde countries have already equipped themselves with a legal framework which legislates the use of the digital space. There is a clear understanding of the concept of responsibility as for any violator of the pre-established laws. However, there are still users accustomed to reprehensible acts giving themselves to serious acts of nuisance towards others. However, their package never goes unpunished because of the use of pseudonyms or virtual out ls which camouflage them during their package. Nowadays there are in addition to legal texts, there are the qualified personnel to trace any contravening with the respect of the laws which frame the use of the digital space. In order not to be complicit in their packages, the administrators of social networks, a free digital platform on the web, now display a charter which commits any violation of the code of ethics to the use and respect of the privacy of third parties. The use of social networks is not based on any security which guarantees respect for data belonging to others. reason for which the notion of responsibility must be reinforced by a reprehension of the judicial systems of each country. Thus, any person found guilty of disseminating false information, disclosing the secrets of a public or private structure without authorization, publication of images detrimental to the honor of a third party; falsification of documents for use in personal interests etc must the subject of the sactions. A coalition of states from the same community must establish a policy of solidarity for assistance in case of need to track down offenders.

What charter should govern the use of social networks for a framework for the use of social media? Regarding the charter of use of digital space, it must comply with respect for the privacy of individuals and public establishments in accordance with the articles contained in the current penal code. These elements must be clearly defined and put at the disposal of the user with the warnings as for the sanctions incurred in case there is drift on the behavior in the digital spaces.

Conclusion It is clearly recognized that digital spaces offer a space of expression which facilitates exchanges. However, it is very important to define the concept of responsibility in order to respect the use of this space which serves as a framework for meeting on a global scale. And which to date represents a significant lever for development. An education based on the respect of the rules will make digital space a pleasant framework to travel without placing yourself, to learn without necessarily resorting to large expenses, to be informed in real time about what is happening in the world and many other advantages offered by this swimming space.

Science as our beautiful thought

By Dr. Rosa Hilda Lora M. Advisor at AIU | [email protected]


Science is the most beautiful thought because it allows us to get closer to the wonderful world of which we are part. It’s a work of dedication and revision of all that we are as human beings. We have many explanations of the physical world of which we are a part. We also review and anticipate everything we are as a culture and as a civilization. Being a work of vision, of proposals, of verification, of exercises and exercises of reason, it makes human beings dedicated to it, builders of the world that we know until now.

The disclosure of this type of activity is recent; we know that the universities within their substantive functions have that of the dissemination of science. The terminology that science has is what gives it its character but at the same time it becomes its difficulty for those who are not specialists. There is a difference between common language and scientific language. This difference has been, many times marked, on the one hand, by the little dissemination that was made of science, but at the same time by the little interest of society to know the work of researchers. From the Greek world we know that all the objects of study of science are not the same: one thing is what has to do with human beings and another with nature. The knowledge that science provides is related to society, the economy, history, philosophy, human beings and everything that makes up the social and material world. Due to their way of working, any other explanation is useless and wrong. People who use the applications of science study what the system is but are far from its construction. Nowadays we hear many wanting to talk about science but they’re lost in a field that is not that of theories and their foundation. Scientists speak little of what they do, so the works that explain what it is to do science don’t have the divulgation that they should be. Scientists don’t have to explain to each other what scientific work is, hence, on this activity we find classic works such as Karl Popper. Rather, the works are written for those who have to dabble in scientific research.

Science is divided into: Basic and Applied. Those who work on its construction develop in both fields: some build the system and others apply it for the benefit of society. The problem in the field of science has been: a) Identify what the object of study is.

b) Checking for object type c) The value of mathematics d) The consideration of the object of study outside its environment. e) The consideration of the object of study in its integration into the physical and cultural world. From the aforementioned aspects, positions have emerged throughout the history of science that still determine. We can see the jobs and thinking in the following researchers: Henri Poincaré (1854-1912) Otto Neurath (1882-1945) Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) Hans Reichenbach (1891-1953) Arthur Rosenblueth (1900-1970) Karl Popper (1902-1997) Imre Lakatos (1922-1974) Thomas S. Khun (1926-1996) Paul Feyerabend (1924-1994)

Nowadays, to do any research, whether you want to continue in Positivism or not, for a good research, you must enter the holistic demonstration: demonstrate to the object in the world to which it belongs what interdisciplinarity implies. That is why there are no disagreements about being a Positivist or not. We still have followers of quantification for which if an investigation doesn’t have a mathematical proof, the knowledge that was intended hasn’t been reached. We know in this 21st century that verification can be factual and ideal. We also know that we can’t consider the object of study in isolation, so we have to take interdisciplinarity very seriously. We live in a world where the sciences that allowed the creation of technology for marketing and weapons to seek peace from the generation of fear were given more importance. Hence, the sciences in which we see more production are the so-called “hard sciences”, such as physics that needs mathematics for quantification. Mathematics has been highly valued because it will quantify the objects that are wanted. We are aware of the value that many think mathematics has; a clear example occurs, in many countries, in the basic grades of education, where children whose abilities are oriented to other fields of knowledge are paid little attention. Making history of the path of science we have that we are part of the Greco-Roman culture. In the ancient world we had a science only from reasoning. Modern science begins with Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) because he introduces experimentation and mathematics. With new ideas about the method of doing science, we talk about Isaac Newton (1642-1727). Newton was a follower of Aristotle for his method of analysis and synthesis.

One way of doing science, which is maintained despite its advancement, is Positivism for which science is only about observable and measurable facts. For the Positivists, the verifiable refers to the quantity, but today we know that the verifiable has to be first of the mind and after the factual, if it is given. In his classic work Science with Consciousness Morin says: “Scientific knowledge is true knowledge, in the sense that it is based on verified data and is capable of providing concrete predictions.” (Morin, 1984, p. 40) The explanation that Morin gives us refers to the fact that scientists in their work propose theories that demonstrate and that new aspect of what we call reality is reviewed by the other members of the scientific community and the new theory must be congruent with the system that constitutes the science. The recently deceased Mario Bunge in Scientific Research says: “Science is a style of thought and action: precisely the most recent, the most universal and the most profitable of all styles”. (Bunge, 2004. p. 19) In relation to the knowledge that science provides and everything that many nowadays say, Carl Sagan says: “We live in a society that is extremely dependent on science and technology, in which almost no one has minimal notions about science and technology.” (Sagan, 1994)

Nowadays we hear: scientific method and it refers to the positivist method. We can mention all the methods we want, but they all have to be based on: a theory, a demonstration, a check if the object of study allows it, some results and the application. Having a society in which everything is networks and networks, there should be more communication than what does benefit society: scientific work. You can ask those with even a Master’s degree which are the popular science magazines and they don’t know. Ask which artist had such behavior and you will have very detailed answers. You can search the web for many scientific journals because currently there is a wide publication because groups such as the scientific community and universities have a commitment to disseminate science. In science there is no other: it is demonstrated by grounded reasoning and the results are deduced from the relationship with the supporting theories.

Learning

Hey students!

Here’s how to deal with school in a pandemic.

I suspect that just about all students are in one of three instructional modes [during this pandemic]: • Completely face-to-face classes with some type of social-distancing limitations. • Completely online (some people like to call it remote) learning. • Some type of hybrid model that includes both in-person and remote learning. Here is some advice to make sure that you (the student) get through this with your education intact (hopefully). 1. Communicate and make connections. The majority of students learn by interacting with the instructor and other students. 2. Don’t fall behind. The longer you wait to jump on the train, the more difficult it gets, since the train is not only farther away, but also going faster. Do whatever helps you keep up. 3. Realize that instructors are in a difficult position also. Just realize that you might be stressed out about remote [or social-distance] learning, and your instructors are in the same boat. 4. Don’t take the easy path. It’s way too easy to just Google the answer and get past this test. But maybe you should ask yourself, why are you in this course? Is it for that letter grade that you get at the end? Or is it to learn something about the fundamental nature of the universe? ... Read full text:

It was a Viking saga written in genes. In 2008, construction work on an isolated Estonian beach near the town of Salme uncovered the skeletons of more than 40 powerfully built men. They were buried around 750 C.E. in two ships with Viking-style weapons and treasure —apparently the aftermath of a raid gone wrong. DNA from the bones has now added a poignant detail: Four of the men, buried shoulder to shoulder holding their swords, were brothers. The new data come from a massive effort to sequence the DNA of Vikings across Europe. The results, published today in Nature, trace how the Vikings radiated across Europe from their Scandinavian homeland, and how people with roots elsewhere also took up Viking ways. “The big story is in line with what’s told by archaeologists and historians,” says Erika Hagelberg, an ancient DNA expert at the University of Oslo... “It’s the small details of particular sites that are really compelling.” The Estonian site, for example, offers powerful evidence that the crew was a tight-knit group from the same village or town. “Four brothers buried together is new and unique … [and] adds a new dimension,” says Cat Jarman, an archaeologist working for the Museum of Cultural History in Oslo.

Heart damage

Evidence builds that COVID-19 can damage the heart.

This fall, cardiologist Sam Mohiddin will embrace a new role —that of research subject. MRI scans of his heart at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital in London, where he works, will help answer a pressing question: Do people who suffered a mild or moderate bout of COVID-19 months ago, as he did, need to worry about their heart health? Fears that COVID-19 can cause the cardiac inflammation called myocarditis have grown, as doctors report seeing previously healthy people whose COVID-19 experience is trailed by myocarditis-induced heart failure. Mohiddin recently treated 42-year-old Abul Kashem, who had typical COVID- 19 symptoms in April, including loss of smell and mild shortness of breath. A month later, he fell critically ill from severe myocarditis. “I’m just grateful to be alive,” says Kashem, who spent more than 2 weeks in an intensive care unit. Why did this happen? he wonders. How the virus might damage heart muscle is just one question researchers are now probing. Other studies are following people during and after acute illness to learn how common heart inflammation is after COVID-19, how long it lingers, and whether it responds to specific treatments.

Light

A new weapon against Parkinson’s.

Light therapy can help lift moods, heal wounds, and boost the immune system. Can it improve symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, too? A first-of-its-kind trial scheduled to launch this fall in France aims to find out. In seven patients, a fiber optic cable implanted in their brain will deliver pulses of near-infrared (NIR) light directly to the substantia nigra, a region deep in the brain that degenerates in Parkinson’s disease. The team, led by neurosurgeon Alim-Louis Benabid of the Clinatec Institute —a partnership between several government- funded research institutes and industry— hopes the light will protect cells there from dying. The study is one of several set to explore how Parkinson’s patients might benefit from light. “I am so excited,” says neuropsychologist Dawn Bowers of the University of Florida College of Medicine, who is recruiting patients for a trial in which NIR will be beamed into the skull instead of delivered with an implant. Small tests in people with Parkinson’s and animal models of the disease have already suggested benefits

Experimental drug

It protects Covid-19 patients, Eli Lilly claims.

A single infusion of an experimental drug markedly reduced levels of the coronavirus in newly infected patients and lowered the chances that they would need hospitalization, the drug’s maker announced on Wednesday. The drug is a monoclonal antibody, a manufactured copy of an antibody produced by a patient who recovered from Covid-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus. Many scientists hope that monoclonal antibodies will prove to be powerful treatments for Covid-19, but they are difficult and expensive to manufacture, and progress has been slow. The announcement, by Eli Lilly, was not accompanied by detailed data; independent scientists have not yet reviewed the results, nor have they been published in a peer-reviewed journal. ... More than 450 newly diagnosed patients received the monoclonal antibody or a placebo infusion. Some 1.7% of those who got the drug were hospitalized, compared with 6% of those who received a placebo —a 72% reduction in risk. Levels of the coronavirus plummeted among participants who received the drug, and their symptoms were fewer, compared with those who got the placebo. The treatments so far shown to help coronavirus patients ... are intended only for hospitalized patients. Those with mild to moderate disease have had to wait and hope for the best. ...

Wearing glasses

Does it protect you from coronavirus?


When researchers in China were analyzing hospital data of patients with Covid-19, they noticed an odd trend: Very few of the sick patients regularly wore glasses. In one hospital in Suizhou, China, 276 patients were admitted over a 47 day period, but only 16 patients — less than 6 percent — had myopia or nearsightedness that required them to wear glasses for more than eight hours a day. By comparison, more than 30 percent of similarly aged people in the region needed glasses for nearsightedness, earlier research had shown. ... It may be that eyeglasses act as a partial barrier, protecting eyes from the splatter of a cough or sneeze. Another explanation for the finding could be that people who wear glasses are less likely to rub their eyes with contaminated hands. ... The current study, published in JAMA Ophthalmology, was accompanied by a commentary from Dr. Lisa Maragakis, an infectious disease specialist and associate professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, who urged caution in interpreting the results. The study was small, involving fewer than 300 cases, a tiny fraction ... Read full text:

Jisoo Jang

It was a growing love for textures and textiles that prompted Jisoo Jang, the 25 year old South Korean designer to apply to the BA Fashion Knitwear course at Central Saint Martins. During her placement year, Jisoo interned at Kiko Kostadinov. Her graduate collection explores her collector’s obsession for vases, flowers and fragrances. Perfume is an omnipresent element in Jisoo’s everyday attire. She applies the same art of flower arrangement in her own sense of dress, too; ‘I think the invisible scent, mood, and emotion conjure up memories of the day.’ Six muses were imagined, assuming that each vase was a character, wondering what they would wear and what scent matched best their personalities. Exaggerated volumes reference the way objects come into contact and interact with the body in the art works of Caroline Broadhead. Each garment has been executed with sustainable techniques; zero waste pattern, laser cutting on washable paper and bio plastics mixed with gelatine and Jesmonite. —Josephine Giachero, BA (Hons) Fashion Journalism @je.suis.josephine

Nutrition

We can use it to support trauma recovery.

The connection between food and mental health is an increasingly important topic in the wellness world, but integrating nutrition into a trauma recovery plan (or any kind of mental health plan) still isn’t talked about often. It’s one that UK nutrition therapist and eating disorder recovery coach Kaysha Thomas wishes people would talk about more. ... For someone working through trauma, eating regular meals often falls by the wayside, but when you aren’t fueling your body regularly, Thomas says it can further stress your body. “The nervous system’s response to trauma increases our need for both macro and micro nutrients as these are being used up at an increased rate to sustain the flight, fight, or freeze response,” she tells Well+Good. However, irregular meals send a signal to your brain that food is scarce, which disrupts blood sugar levels. The brain then releases the stress hormone cortisol which stimulates the release of glucose from its energy stores to make up for the disrupted blood sugar levels. But of course, chronic levels of cortisol has a trickle-down effect on the rest of the body, making it harder to sleep, disrupting digestion, and potentially even impacting menstruation and other crucial body systems. Besides eating regular meals, Thomas says it’s important to get enough omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, and carbohydrates —yes, carbs!

Control your dreams

It could help you through isolation.

A new technique for lucid dreaming, where people are aware they are having a dream while they experience it, has been verified. Although the study began well before anyone had heard of a new coronavirus, the author thinks the timing is appropriate, as lucid dreaming may be a big help to those trapped in isolation due to lockdown measures. Many people have lucid dreams, but most do so rarely. Several methods have been proposed to help make dreams like this more common, but tests of their effectiveness have generally not been very rigorous. In 2018 Dr. Denholm Aspy of The University of Adelaide tried to change that with a study comparing several techniques to induce lucid dreaming. Aspy reported those using the Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams (MILD) method had lucid dreams on 17% of nights when first practicing. This was the best anyone had measured without the assistance of supplements. For a new study, Aspy randomly allocated 355 volunteers to try five different techniques or combinations, including Senses Initiated Lucid Dream (SSILD), a new method involving waking after five hours and focusing attention intensively for 20 seconds before going back to sleep. In Frontiers in Psychology, Aspy confirms his previous success rate for MILD

World fails

...to meet a single target to stop destruction of nature.

The world has failed to meet a single target to stem the destruction of wildlife and life-sustaining ecosystems in the last decade, according to a devastating new report from the UN on the state of nature. From tackling pollution to protecting coral reefs, the international community did not fully achieve any of the 20 Aichi biodiversity targets agreed in Japan in 2010 to slow the loss of the natural world. It is the second consecutive decade that governments have failed to meet targets. The Global Biodiversity Outlook 5, published before a key UN summit on the issue later this month, found that despite progress in some areas, natural habitats have continued to disappear, vast numbers of species remain threatened by extinction from human activities, and $500bn (£388bn) of environmentally damaging government subsidies have not been eliminated. Six targets have been partially achieved, including those on protected areas and invasive species. While governments did not manage to protect 17% of terrestrial and inland water areas and 10% of marine habitats, 44% of vital biodiverse areas are now under protection, an increase from 29% in 2000. About 200 successful eradications of invasive species on islands have also taken place. ... The UN’s biodiversity head, Elizabeth Maruma Mrema, said humanity was at a crossroads Read full text:

Tiehm’s buckwheat

More than 17,000 rare Nevada wildflowers destroyed.

Conservationists discovered over the weekend [Sept. 16] that someone had dug up and destroyed more than 17,000 Tiehm’s buckwheat plants, a rare Nevada wildflower the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said this summer may warrant protection under the Endangered Species Act. As much as 40% of the flower’s global population, which exists on just 21 acres in western Nevada, may have been destroyed. “This is an absolute tragedy,” said Patrick Donnelly, Nevada state director at the Center for Biological Diversity. “Tiehm’s buckwheat is one of the beautiful gems of Nevada’s biodiversity and some monster destroyed thousands of these irreplaceable flowering plants.” A routine visit to the site by Center staff revealed substantial impacts to all six subpopulations of the flower, with some subpopulations nearly wiped out. Plants were dug up or mangled with shovels, with taproots cut and most of the dead buckwheats hauled off-site. ... Tiehm’s buckwheat has been the subject of recent controversy. An Australian mining company, Ioneer Corp., has proposed an open-pit lithium mine that would destroy the vast majority of Tiehm’s buckwheat’s habitat. ... “This appears to have been a premeditated, somewhat organized, large-scale operation aimed at wiping out one of the rarest plants on Earth Read full text:

Ableism

We need to talk about it.

We live in a society designed with the expectation that people are able, neurotypical. Most people never consider how those of us with disability, chronic illness or neurodiversity interact with the world around us. Perhaps it’s not unrelated that according to the most recent data, discrimination on the grounds of disability topped the list in terms of complaints made to the Australian Human Rights Commission —above that of racism and sexism. These complaints, which can be difficult to lodge, are the tip of an iceberg. Yet if I drop the word ‘ableism’? Silence. People who easily name racism and sexism do not seem to see the human rights issues that underscore ableism. So that silence is problematic. What is ableism? It is the favouring of able neurotypical people, and the exclusion and devaluation of people who are disabled and neurodivergent. Ableism may not be intentional (in the same way that racism or sexism may not be intentional) but that doesn’t mean it’s not harmful. Take the many media stories that often use words that communicate the underlying message we are a “burden” on society. Think of all of the buildings, spaces, places, events (and so on) that were often designed without consideration of the needs of people with disability. Often we are the afterthought ...

20 horses survived

A horse sanctuary was reduced to ashes in a California fire..

The wildfires that have ravaged the west coast over the past two months have burned millions of acres, claimed over 30 lives, and forced thousands to live in evacuation shelters. The fires have also caused unimaginable damage to the area’s wildlife. “Some of these places we set aside may be fundamentally impacted by climate change and may not be able to come back,” Amy Windrope, deputy director of Washington’s Department of Fish and Wildlife, said according to The New York Times. Out of all the death and destruction comes a wonderful story out of Jamul, California, near San Diego. Over twenty years ago, Patty Hyslop started the Hyslop Horse Haven to care for abused and neglected horses. ... The sanctuary also provides horseback riding lessons for children. On September 5, as the Valley Fire raged through the area, forcing Hyslop to evacuate her ranch, leaving the horses behind. ... After the fire made its way through the area, Hyslop returned to her horse haven fearing the worst. But she was shocked to find that all 20 of her horses survived. Unfortunately... the entire sanctuary was reduced to ash and debris. ... You can help rebuild it, visit and donate here: https://www. gofundme.com/f/valley-fire-horse-help Read full text

How self-control can actually unleash your dark sided

A few years ago, 80 Parisians were given the chance to take part in the pilot of a new gameshow, called La Zone Xtrême. The producer greeted each participant at the studio and told them that they would appear in pairs – one as a “questioner”, and one as the “contestant”. It was only once the participants arrived on stage, and the host explained the rules, that things got decidedly dark. The questioner was told to punish the contestant for any wrong answers with a sharp electric shock. They would have to increase the intensity each time, up to a total of 460 volts –more than twice the voltage of a European power outlet. If the pair made it through 27 rounds, they would win the show. The contestant was then taken into a chamber and strapped into a chair, while the questioner sat centre stage, and the game commenced. Since it was simply a pilot show, the participants were told there was no monetary prize for winning the game –yet the vast majority of the questioners continued to administer the shocks, even after they could hear the screams of pain emanating from the chamber. Thankfully, these cries for help were just an act –there was no electric shock. The questioners were unknowingly participating in elaborate experiment that allowed scientists to explore the way various personality traits could influence moral behaviour. You might expect the worst offenders to have been impulsive and antisocial –or, at the very least, with no strength of character. Yet the French scientists found the exact opposite. It was the participants who scored highest on conscientiousness –a trait normally associated with careful, disciplined and moral behaviour– who were willing to administer the greatest shocks. “The people who are accustomed to being agreeable and organised, and whose social integration is good, find it more difficult to disobey,” explains Laurent Bègue, a behavioural scientist at the University of Grenoble-Alpes who analysed the participants’ behaviour. And in this case, that personality profile meant they were willing to torture another human being. These findings join a spate of new studies showing that people with high self-control and discipline have a surprising dark side. This research can help us understand why model citizens sometimes turn toxic, with important implications for our understanding of unethical behaviour in the workplace and beyond.

Overcoming impulses For decades, self-control had been seen as an unalloyed advantage. It can be assessed in various ways –from the questionnaires studying conscientiousness (which considers someone’s preference for selfdiscipline and organisation) to experimental measures of willpower (such as the famous “Marshmallow Test”). In each case, people with high self-control were seen to perform better at school and work and to adopt healthier lifestyles; they are less likely to overeat or take drugs, and more likely to exercise. Their ability to overcome their baser urges meant that people with higher self-control were also less likely to act aggressively or violently, and were less likely to have a criminal record. For these reasons, self-control was believed to contribute to the strength of someone’s “character”; some scientists even went as far as to argue that it comprises a kind of “moral muscle” determining our capacity to act ethically.

In the mid-2010s, however, Liad Uziel at Israel’s Bar-Ilan University began to investigate whether context might play an important role in determining the consequences of our self-control. He speculated that the trait was just a useful tool that allows people to achieve any goal –both good and bad. In many situations, our social norms reward people cooperating with others, and so people with high self-control happily toe the line. And if we change those social norms, then people with high self-control might turn out to be less than scrupulous in their treatment of others. To test the idea, Uziel turned to a standard psychological experiment called the “dictator game” in which one participant is given a sum of money, and offered the chance to share it with a partner.

Bachelor of Migration Studies

SCHOOL OF SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING

The Bachelor of Migration Studies program is offered online via distance learning. After evaluating both academic record and life experience, AIU staff working in conjunction with Faculty and Academic Advisors will assist students in setting up a custom-made program, designed on an individual basis. This flexibility to meet student needs is seldom found in other distance learning programs. Our online program does not require all students to take the same subjects/ courses, use the same books, or learning materials. Instead, the online Bachelor of Migration Studies curriculum is designed individually by the student and academic advisor. It specifically addresses strengths and weaknesses with respect to development opportunities in the student’s major and intended field of work. Understanding that industry and geographic factors should influence the content of the curriculum instead of a standardized one-fits-all design is the hallmark of AIU’s unique approach to adult education. This philosophy addresses the dynamic and constantly changing environment of working professionals by helping adult students in reaching their professional and personal goals within the scope of the degree program.

About Us

Accreditation

Atlantic International University offers distance learning degree programs for adult learners at bachelors, masters, and doctoral level. With self paced program taken online, AIU lifts the obstacles that keep professional adults from completing their educational goals. Programs are available throughout a wide range of majors and areas of study. All of this with a philosophically holistic approach towards education fitting within the balance of your life and acknowledging the key role each individual can play in their community, country, and the world. Atlantic International University is accredited by the Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities (ASIC). ASIC Accreditation is an internationally renowned quality standard for colleges and universities. Visit ASIC’s Directory of Accredited Colleges and Universities. ASIC is a member of CHEA International Quality Group (CIQG) in the USA, an approved accreditation body by the Ministerial Department of the Home Office in the UK, and is listed in the International Directory of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). The University is based in the United States and was established by corporate charter in 1998.

Our founding principles are based on the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights; per article 26, AIU believes that Higher Education is a Human Right. The University has implemented a paradigm shifting educational model for its academic programs that have allowed it to move closer to this goal through the self-empowerment of its students, decentralization of the learning process, personalized open curriculum design, a sustainable learning model, developing 11 core elements of the Human Condition within MYAIU, and utilizing the quasi-infinite knowledge through the use of information technology combined with our own capacity to find solutions to all types of global issues, dynamic problems, and those of individuals and multidisciplinary teams. Due to these differentiations and the university’s mission, only a reputable accrediting agency with the vision and plasticity to integrate and adapt its processes around AIU’s proven and successful innovative programs could be selected. Unfortunately, the vast majority of accrediting agencies adhere to and follow obsolete processes and requirements that have outlived their usefulness and are in direct conflict with the university’s mission of offering a unique, dynamic, affordable, quality higher education to the nontraditional student (one who must work, study what he really needs for professional advancement, attend family issues, etc.). We believe that adopting outdated requirements and processes would impose increased financial burdens on students while severely limiting their opportunities to earn their degree and advance in all aspects. Thus, in selecting the ASIC as its accrediting agency, AIU ensured that its unique programs would not be transformed into a copy or clone of those offered by the 10,000+ colleges and universities around the world. Since ASIC is an international accrediting agency based outside the United States, we are required by statute HRS446E to place the following disclaimer: ATLANTIC INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY IS NOT ACCREDITED BY AN ACCREDITING AGENCY RECOGNIZED BY THE UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF EDUCATION. Note: In the United States and abroad, many licensing authorities require accredited degrees as the basis for eligibility for licensing.

In some cases, accredited colleges may not accept for transfer courses and degrees completed at unaccredited colleges, and some employers may require an accredited degree as a basis for eligibility for employment. Potential students should consider how the above may affect their interests, AIU respects the unique rules and regulations of each country and does not seek to influence the respective authorities. In the event that a prospective student wishes to carry out any government review or process in regards to his university degree, we recommend that the requirements of such are explored in detail with the relevant authorities by the prospective student as the university does not intervene in such processes. AIU students can be found in over 180 countries, they actively participate and volunteer in their communities as part of their academic program and have allocated thousands of service hours to diverse causes and initiatives. AIU programs follow the standards commonly used by colleges and universities in the United States with regards to the following: academic program structure, degree issued, transcript, and other graduation documents. AIU graduation documents can include an apostille and authentication from the US Department of State to facilitate their use internationally.

The AIU Difference

It is acknowledged that the act of learning is endogenous, (from within), rather than exogenous.

This fact is the underlying rationale for “Distance Learning”, in all of the programs offered by AIU. The combination of the underlying principles of student “self instruction”, (with guidance), collaborative development of curriculum unique to each student, and flexibility of time and place of study, provides the ideal learning environment to satisfy individual needs.

AIU is an institution of experiential learning and nontraditional education at a distance. There are no classrooms and attendance is not required.

Mission & Vision

MISSION:

To be a higher learning institution concerned about generating cultural development alternatives likely to be sustained in order to lead to a more efficient administration of the world village and its environment; exerting human and community rights through diversity with the ultimate goal of the satisfaction and evolution of the world.

VISION:

The empowerment of the individual towards the convergence of the world through a sustainable educational design based on andragogy and omniology.

Education on the 21st century

AIU is striving to regain the significance of the concept of education, which is rooted into the Latin “educare”, meaning “to pull out”, breaking loose from the paradigm of most 21st century universities with their focus on “digging and placing information” into students’ heads rather than teaching them to think. For AIU, the generation of “clones” that some traditional universities are spreading throughout the real world is one of the most salient reasons for today’s ills. In fact, students trained at those educational institutions never feel a desire to “change the world” or the current status quo; instead, they adjust to the environment, believe everything is fine, and are proud of it all.

IN A WORLD where knowledge and mostly information expire just like milk, we must reinvent university as a whole in which each student, as the key player, is UNIQUE within an intertwined environment. This century’s university must generate new knowledge bits although this may entail its separation from both the administrative bureaucracy and the faculty that evolve there as well. AIU thinks that a university should be increasingly integrated into the “real world”, society, the economy, and the holistic human being. As such, it should concentrate on its ultimate goal, which is the student, and get him/her deeply immersed into a daily praxis of paradigm shifts, along with the Internet and research, all these being presently accessible only to a small minority of the world community. AIU students must accomplish their self-learning mission while conceptualizing it as the core of daily life values through the type of experiences that lead to a human being’s progress when information is converted into education. The entire AIU family must think of the university as a setting that values diversity and talent in a way that trains mankind not only for the present but above all for a future that calls everyday for professionals who empower themselves in academic and professional areas highly in demand in our modern society. We shall not forget that, at AIU, students are responsible for discovering their own talents and potential, which they must auto-develop in such a way that the whole finish product opens up as a flower that blossoms every year more openly.

THE AIU STANCE is against the idea of the campus as a getaway from day-to-day pressure since we believe reality is the best potential-enhancer ever; one truly learns through thinking, brainstorming ideas, which leads to new solutions, and ultimately the rebirth of a human being fully integrated in a sustainable world environment. Self-learning is actualized more from within than a top-down vantage point, that is to say, to influence instead of requesting, ideas more than power. We need to create a society where solidarity, culture, life, not political or economic rationalism and more than techno structures, are prioritized. In short, the characteristics of AIU students and alumni remain independence, creativity, self-confidence, and ability to take risk towards new endeavors. This is about people’s worth based not on what they know but on what they do with what they know.

AIU Service

AIU offers educational opportunities in the USA to adults from around the world so that they can use their own potential to manage their personal, global cultural development. The foundational axis of our philosophy lies upon self-actualized knowledge and information, with no room for obsoleteness, which is embedded into a DISTANCE LEARNING SYSTEM based on ANDRAGOGY and OMNIOLOGY. The ultimate goal of this paradigm is to empower learners and help them take advantage of the enormous array of resources from the world environment in order to eliminate the current continuum of poverty and limitations.

This will become a crude reality with respect for, and practice of, human and community rights through experiences, investigations, practicum work, and/ or examinations. Everything takes place in a setting that fosters diversity; with advisors and consultants with doctorate degrees and specializations in Human Development monitor learning processes, in addition to a worldwide web of colleagues and associations, so that they can reach the satisfaction and the progress of humanity with peace and harmony.
