STRANGE ACADEMY IS BACK

Announced today by surprise guest Skottie Young at San Diego Comic-Con’s Retailer Panel, STRANGE ACADEMY will return this November! Young and artist Humberto Ramos will continue the spellbinding adventures of the students at Doctor Strange’s school for the mystic arts in STRANGE ACADEMY: FINALS #1.

Throughout their original run, the two powerhouse creators revitalized the mystical side of the Marvel Universe with the introduction of new captivating characters like Emily Bright, Doyle Dormammu, and Zoe Laveau. A hit with new readers and longtime Marvel fans, STRANGE ACADEMY quickly became one of the hottest Marvel titles on the shelves, and the best is yet to come! 

Earlier this month, STRANGE ACADEMY #18 ended the series’ first era with a student rebellion, a daring journey to the Dark Dimension, and the realization that some of the school’s brightest stars have dark futures…

Freshman year is almost over! From day one, people have been wondering – who is the savior of Strange Academy, and who can bring it all down? The future of Marvel Magic is going to be decided here, and it will take FAR more than the Sorcerer Supreme and his school if magic has a chance!

“This is a real passion project for me and Humberto, and we’ve never had so much fun making this project,” Young said. “All of the high school teen drama between Dormammu’s son Doyle and Emily Bright is going to come back, but this is not just a continuation of the next day of class! You will see the ramifications of how the first series ended, and we’re going to be focusing on some really cool characters. And with the prophecy over the last few years…someone’s going to come out of this changed in a big way.”

“When we first started, we just wanted to do something together, but it was great to see the reaction from the fans,” Ramos added. “I love drawing these characters, and Skottie gives them the best scripts to play with these kids, their universe, their concerns and powers, and the way they’d like the world to be. This new saga and chapter of their lives will be really insane.”

Daniel Carrera student at P.S. 090 Horace Mann in Queens.

A LEGOLAND® VACATION

Mrs. Nanjad got a well-deserved teaching break from, of all people, a student, and some LEGO® Bricks. Daniel Carrera, the recent winner of the Mini Master Model Builder competition at LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Westchester and a 5th-grade student at P.S. 090 Horace Mann in Queens, gave a mini LEGO building lesson about how to create graduation-themed LEGO® models.

LEGOLAND® Discovery Center Westchester donated hundreds of LEGO® bricks to help Carrera teach the class of 25 about building special items for their 5th-grade graduation. They created a name badge, apple, pencil, and notebook as part of the special fun session, giving Mrs. Nanjad a well-deserved break to enjoy seeing one of her students become a budding LEGO® builder. On top of it all, LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester surprised each student with the new Summer Play Pass so they can keep building, creating, and playing for the rest of the year at the attraction. The summer play pass will launch this weekend for the general public to purchase. $39.99 for admission Sunday – Friday until Dec 31, 2022.

Daniel is also competing to become the North American Mini-Master Model Builder. New Yorkers looking to support their local Mini-Master Model Builder can vote to start tomorrow at 9:00 AM, Jun 22, through Monday, Jun 27, at noon at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester’s Facebook page. The votes will be combined with Master Model Builders at all LEGOLAND Discovery Centers to decide the winner. Daniel thanks you for your support and hopes the first-ever North American Mini-Master Model Builder will reside in New York

Why Professionalism Is Important in Every Age – from School to Work

Skill alone does not make you impactful at work, school, or life as a whole. You need qualities that will help you inspire and impress others and fulfill your role to the best of your ability. One such quality is professionalism. 

Professionalism definition is consistently achieving visible and invisible high standards regardless of the role or profession. In other words, it is how you accomplish a task and not just about the task you do. It is about your approach to a role and not how prestigious the position is. Professionalism means you hold yourself accountable to maintain a high standard in assigned tasks. 

In our world today, the way you work, complete assignments, carry yourself, and the attitude you communicate to others create an impression. Although many of us would want to think we are professionals, bridging the gap between our personal and professional values is not the easiest. In this article, we will discuss how to be a professional in every sphere in our life. 

How professionalism influences learning 

Imagine you come to class late and turn in an essay assignment on the last day of submission as a student. But somehow, you always end up with one of the best scores. Are you brilliant? Yes. Are you professional? No. 

Professionalism in school is not a checklist of things you want to achieve. Say, for example, get the highest grade. Instead, the concept is a way of living that cuts across your communication, appearance, manner, approaches, skills, approach, and willingness to improve. 

Professionalism requires that you identify the importance of your role and what you must do. This way, you can act in the most acceptable way. Imagine you need to turn in a 100 points paper sample to demonstrate your level of comprehension in the classroom. The best way to reach professionalism papers is to submit the assignment on time and ensure it does not contain any form of plagiarism, cheating, and academic dishonesty. 

The punishment for cheating or plagiarism varies in severity depending on the rules of the college. So, you should do your best to check your written work for grammatical errors, typos, and related mistakes. Then, you will package it in the best possible way and submit it to your lecturer. A student with this type of consciousness knows there is no room for late submission or a mediocre mentality. Here are ways you can mark yourself as a professional. 

● Display competence: match your abilities with the requirement of any role to produce exceptional results. 

● Update your knowledge: Strive for mastery in your field by always adding to what you know. Even if you won’t need it, the confidence from your knowledge will ultimately help you succeed. 

● Stay conscious: set high standards for yourself to show that you care about your education. Also, hold yourself accountable for your actions and words. 

● Show integrity: don’t compromise your value as a student when things get tough. Instead, show that you are true to your word so that everyone can see you as genuine. Honesty will align your belief and your behavior. 

● Respect everyone: professionalism is not trying to impress anyone. Distinguish yourself as a role model with good manners by taking the needs of others into account. 

 Why professionalism at work 

There are only a few things that employers value more than employees who display professionalism while they fulfill their duties. You will come off as reliable and credible. Professionalism is performed in a context. That means it requires you to identify what is vital and necessary for each role. 

In organizations, you will work with people with different levels of knowledge, personalities, and background. Also, there will be levels of hierarchy and status. Therefore, a professional must see himself and his role in the contexts of organization, department, and team. This means you must respect the organization’s hierarchy and structure. 

A professional obeys codes of conduct, policies, and ethics when at work. However, you must ask for clarifications, especially in places that contrast your personal values. More importantly, you must always pay attention to detail, commit to upholding agreed values and practices and show respect. Below are how to be a professional in every sphere in our life

Values 

Again, professionalism is about how you do the work and not about the work. So, you don’t do things because you are told to do. The best way to get results at an organizational level is to let your professional values mix with intrinsic motivations. They include: 

● Sincerity, patience, honesty, integrity 

● Equality, respect, trust, discretion, and justice. 

● Hard work, balance, dedication, commitment, and perseverance. 

Willingness 

You must be willing to perform a task at the highest standard. For effectiveness, you should be open to learning and developing in a particular role. After gaining mastery, you must present yourself as confident without being arrogant. A professional is open to constructive criticism so that he can learn from his mistakes. Not only your mistakes, but you should learn from others as well. 

Professionalism is the willingness to do a bit extra by taking creative initiative. You should also display a willingness to see from different perspectives to yours and accept feedback to improve. Ask for help and listen to the advice. Also, learn to work individually and as a team. 

Behavior 

As a professional, you must set boundaries through your conduct and behavior. This means keeping your personal problems out of your work life. Also, you must be able to calmly make decisions and deal with problems. Unlike others and how they are behaving, a professional must maintain professional standards. Stay flexible, versatile, and collaborate with others rather than compete to show yourself a worthy professional. 

Conclusion 

The importance of professionalism at every stage of our life embodies a commitment to continual development. Therefore, you must seek to improve your competence and knowledge to gain a deeper insight into how things work around you. An awareness and acceptance of your weaknesses and strengths will help you grow and evolve into any role.

Independence University Closure and Investigation

By: Emily Bunn × Heather Reibsamen

In the wake of the weekend, Independence University is suddenly closing, causing panic and confusion for its student body and the federal government. Still, as of Wednesday morning, the University’s website hasn’t been updated to publicly broadcast the closing. Independence University’s website’s owner, The Center for Excellence in Higher Education, has not been updated either. The Center for Excellence in Higher Education owns three other colleges that are also in the process of closing. Now, the university looks to push its students to new colleges, raising suspicion about the reason for the closure.

Independence University is chiefly focusing on relocating its student body to Miami International University of Art & Design or Georgia’s South University. Students additionally have the option of stopping their schooling and requesting a return of their federal student loans. However, upon looking into the transfer plans, the Education Department said that Independence University’s “students are being pressured to transfer,” and that the arrangement is “unusual.” Students are worried about credit transfer, falling behind in classes, and the impact of relocation.

One Independence University student – who had been working to get her Bachelor of Science in the college’s Web Design and Development program, Dianne Eveler, expressed frustration about the scandal:

“The most I can say about these tragic findings is this.  Finding only a few days before you are expected to graduate was disheartening.  Also, the terrifying item was to see the hard work you put into place disappear in a moment with no warning, no idea this was happening.

For the most part, the College lacks empathy because many of the faculty were given very little notice or lost their job that day. We have no support in who to contact, or in my case, am I getting my degree.

The truth be told, I went into my Student Portal before I lost access and saw my credits of 180 go to zero, and a new graduation date appear. I’m so scared I lost my degree. I was working so hard to get a perfect 4.0 to have that work lost.  I have learned a valuable lesson, do more research in a college, and never ever do an online learning program again.”

Furthermore, this isn’t the first time that Independence University has been federally scrutinized. The Federal Student Aid chief operation officer, Richard Cordray, commented that the university chose to shut down to avoid the findings of the earlier examination. In 2020, the Center for Excellence in Higher Education has been discovered to be in connection to fraud by the Colorado Government. Independence University had then been placed on a monitoring list and had government restrictions placed on the college’s receival of taxpayer money. Due to the impending pressure on students to transfer, federal employees warranted that a more in-depth investigating is required regarding the university’s reason for shutting down.

The accreditor for Independence University reports that it’s approval of the college had ended in April, as the school failed to maintain acceptable graduation and employment rates among students. This end of accreditation also resulted in the loss of federal money to the University.

In a statement to USA Today, Cordray explained, “We have already emailed students to help them understand they do not have to be rushed into accepting a transfer to another school of CEHE’s choosing.” In spite of the college’s sudden closure, the Federal Student Aid chief operation officer cautions students to not make any hasty decisions. Under President Biden’s administration, the Education Department is “more willing to exercise its regulatory oversight” reports USA Today.

As uprooted students scrabble to find answers, they’ve had to resort to asking their fellow peers, college administration, and the U.S. Department of Education. Heather Reibsamen, who had been working to get her Bachelor of Science in the college’s Graphic Design program, explained how the tragic situation unfolded for her:

“The last week has been a whirlwind of emotions. Since the announcement that the school was closing, students have scrambled to figure out what their options were. We were sent a form with a few choices: transfer to a “teach-out” school or lose everything we have worked for, to put it bluntly. Initially, I thought everything would work out since I only had a few credits left until I graduate. However, I was met with disappointment and more unknowns. The “approved” teach-out school is Miami International University of Art & Design. I attended the meetings I was told to attend and was unfortunately met with the news that this school does not teach in my state. I was told I needed to find my own college to transfer to and would potentially have to pay out of pocket due to my student loans being tied up with Independence University. Many students were faced with this. Many students are not able to graduate on time because of this.

No one was prepared. No one was warned. We scrambled to get our last assignments in hoping they would count towards the credits we had been working on. There are students that were supposed to graduate last Sunday, however, they have been met with uncertainty. No one knows if the credits we have worked so hard to complete will transfer over. There are employees that have been employed through IU for years that were let go at just a moment’s notice.

I immediately began the search for a school that was accredited and not-for-profit. I reached out to Southern New Hampshire University to see what options I would have if I transferred to their school. I was greeted with understanding and encouragement. Many colleges are learning about the dilemma with Independence University and are seeing the wrongdoings towards the students and staff. SNHU has been every bit of encouraging and supportive during this transition. I consider myself one of the lucky ones so far. I found a school that is regionally accredited and is geared towards the success of the students. I am hopeful for a smooth transition.

Independence University has left the students and staff in complete confusion, and we are all struggling to make sense of it all. We have hope that everything will work out and fear of what still may come.”

Finally, on Wednesday, the college’s closure was announced to students via email. This delayed response highlights how a University can operate in complete disarray, with its students completely unaware of the behind-the-scenes scandal.

WonderWorks Panama x Good Vibrations

WonderWorks Panama City Beach has an array of exhibits that help educate people about science. The newest exhibit on earthquakes, called Good Vibrations, opens June 11, 2021. Good Vibrations will spotlight Tuckaleechee Caverns, and how they document seismic activity around the world. The new exhibit was a topic request from educators, so it seemed appropriate that they also name the exhibit.

“We are happy to offer this new exhibit about earthquakes, which was a request by teachers,” said Michael Walsingham, general manager of WonderWorks Panama City Beach. “People will have a great opportunity to learn about seismic activity, along with where and how it’s measured.”

The Tuckaleechee Caverns are home to the most sensitive seismic station on Earth. It detects any and all tectonic movement anywhere in the world. If a country is testing a nuclear weapon or there is an earthquake, it has that information within seconds. Once it does, within 300 of a millisecond, it relays that important information directly to the U.S. Military; Vienna, Austria and Geneva, Switzerland. The information is collected 24/7 and is crucial to national security, as well as being able to provide earthquake information.

The exhibit, Good Vibrations will help share the importance of the Tuckaleechee Caverns and what they are doing in monitoring seismic activity. The information in the exhibit meets the educational standards on earthquake and seismic activity, and is one of WonderWorks’ many STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) related learning exhibits. The exhibit name was suggested by teachers.

“This is going to be a great summer, with families taking the time to include learning activities along with having fun,” added Walsingham. “At WonderWorks, we are where learning and fun come together, with the whole family enjoying their time here.”

WonderWorks Panama City Beach offers many STEM-related exhibits and activities all year long. There are also demonstrations, activities, virtual learning labs, science fair partnerships, homeschool days, and more. To get more information about the WonderWorks STEM programs, visit the site at: https://www.wonderworksonline.com/panama-city-beach/stem-programs/.

To see a full list of the COVID-19 safety measures in place at WonderWorks Panama City Beach, visit the site at: https://www.wonderworksonline.com/panama-city-beach/covid-19.

The interactive indoor amusement park offers STEM-focused activities for all ages. There are over 100 hands-on activities that are focused on the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math. Some of the exhibits will include a bubble room, Professor Wonder’s adventure, interactive sandbox, illusion art gallery, and xtreme 360 bikes.

The Oxford Method

The Oxford Method Puts Emphasis on Diversity and Inclusion

The Oxford Method, a tutoring community, is on a mission to help underprivileged students around the country

The pandemic changed how education was delivered for millions of students. While just about everyone was impacted, it has been especially difficult on minority students. According to McKinsey & Company, the disparities among student groups grew over the last year. It reports that when it comes to learning, the pandemic took a heavy toll on Black, Hispanic, and Indigenous communities around the country. It found that students of color had fallen 3-5 months behind, while white students were 1-3 months behind. One company, The Oxford Method, is out to help bridge that gap and bring those students up to speed.

“There must be a spotlight put on diversity and inclusion because the achievement gap has widened in the last year,” explains David Florence, professor and founder of The Oxford Method, a community that offers tutoring services around the country. “We are taking steps to help those students so they can get caught up and have the foundation they need to succeed.”

The Oxford Method is an online learning community made up of educators who help to provide tutoring to those in need. It provides a full range of tutoring services, covering all types of subjects, and has experienced educators who can work with all levels of students. They help students who are gifted, special needs, traditional, and from rural and urban areas around the nation.

The educational community helps underprivileged students in a variety of ways, including by:

  • Providing free computers and high-speed internet. With that, it provides free instruction to the students, including those who are special needs and gifted. 
  • Working with students who are in urban and rural areas. These are areas often overlooked and that fall short in the technology category.
  • Having instructors from all socio-economic, psychographics, demographics, and geographic areas. The community of educators not only has a mission of helping those who are in diverse categories, but they are a group that is diverse.

“We have helped many students who would otherwise have a difficult time getting assistance,” added Florence. “We look forward to helping even more to finish this school year strong, get caught up over summer break, and be able to go into the new school year feeling confident.”

The Oxford Method has over 100 tutors around the country, covering all subject areas. It offers online tutoring, as well as in-person and in-classroom options. Its tutoring services are available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The Oxford Method works with its nonprofit, Social Actualization, Inc., by giving it 10% of all profits. The funds are used to provide free computers, high-speed internet, and instruction to underprivileged families in urban and rural America. Plus, 40% of the instructors are PhDs, 40% have a master’s degree, and 20% have only a bachelor’s degree.

The Oxford Method believes that education is the great equalizer and the best gift you can give the next generation. Subject areas include science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), as well as business, social studies, psychology, English, history, public speaking, study methods, test-taking, and more.

Importance of Eye Contact

THE ALL-IMPORTANT SUBJECT OF MAINTAINING EYE CONTACT DURING VIRTUAL CONVERSATIONS AND PRESENTATIONS

Did you know that we have oxytocin receptors in our eyes? When we make eye contact with someone (researchers say about 30 seconds of maintained connection should do it), the receptors tell the brain to produce the hormone, which travels through the body, hits the internal organs, and ends in the heart. Each time the eye contact is maintained, the reaction repeats. The result? Our breath and heart rate slow down, we feel calmer, we feel… happy. Even better, research shows that this effect is achieved when we make eye contact virtually as well as in person.

The Dangers of Losing Human Connection

Connecting with others doesn’t just make us happy, it can apparently also make us better people. In one study, researchers found that individuals who felt connected to others were more likely to want to volunteer in their community or do kindness for strangers. Researchers are now trying to determine how our wellbeing and connection to others is being impacted by spending so much time distanced from our social groups.

Some studies seem grim. One extensive study out of the UK analyzed over 80 research articles on loneliness indicates that as children experience increasing levels of loneliness due to being away from school and friends, they’re at increasing risk of depression and anxiety.

But the good news is that we are getting really creative (and effective) at keeping our human connection going despite the social distancing.

Connecting Creatively

For children navigating distance learning and time away from friends, doctors from the University of Michigan encouraged parents to see this time as an opportunity to teach children new skills that focus on kindness, resilience, and flexibility, while reminding parents that children are incredibly resilient as long as they are in a supportive and loving environment.

Kids can find social connections in lots of creative ways, from Zoom playdates to video game challenges with friends’ half-way around the world.

Technology also helps adults maintain — or form — meaningful connections. More than ever, meeting online is leading to meaningful, romantic relationships despite (or maybe because of?) couples waiting longer to meet in-person. Apparently, flirting via video chat is incredibly effective, despite the fact that you’re never quite really looking each other in the eye.

We are also connecting deeper with our coworkers, as Zoom happy hours have brought socializing into our homes, making for more relaxed conversations. There’s something about seeing your colleagues sipping seltzers from their kid’s playroom that really ups the camaraderie.

Connecting Effectively

Research has shown that the key to virtual connection is the same as it is in person — eye contact. Now we just need to get better at forming that connection during video calls.

The best way to do this is to look into the camera intermittently as you would someone’s eyes when meeting in person. I know, easier said than done! Our instinct is to look at the person’s face on the screen. But one solution to make maintaining eye contact with a camera more natural is having a tool like Eyelinez around your lens. The fun designs will grab your attention and remind you to keep looking into the lens.

What Are Eyelinez?

Maintaining proper eye contact with a camera is not a new challenge.  In fact, the challenge has existed ever since anyone had to stare into a cold dark camera as if they were engaging with a smiling human.  An “eyeline” is where the speaker is looking and Eyelinez is the solution to enable you to maintain a natural and engaging eyeline with the camera.
