  • Engineering Contractors: What Does The Future Hold? - The Tragically Unhip
    hosted by both the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Engineering and Technology was held for giant organisations to come together and discuss ways of preventing the impending future shortage of engineers One idea put forward during the meeting was to attract more young people to engineering through various breadcrumb trails including Big Bang fairs and after school clubs This sparks a need for more organisations to partake in bringing young people and education together However Yvonne Baker director of the National Science Learning Centre wrote It is all very well getting a young person fired up about science on a Saturday but ultimately what happens in the classroom will determine whether that individual progresses Essentially the partnership between schools and employers should be at the forefront but the government also needs to play its part An increased level of commitment from the government would give employers the confidence to become more involved in long term skills planning Another proposed idea surrounded boosting the education system by investing in providing school teachers with high quality industrial placement schemes and students with work experience opportunities These will work to generate a greater pool of STEM knowledge and in turn give students the opportunity to gain a hands on approach into a real life engineering work environment Furthermore it should be acknowledged that acquiring STEM skills can not only be achieved through university and academia It was suggested that the execution of apprenticeships is also a useful tool for employers and prospective learners Doug Richard technology entrepreneur stresses the importance of this approach in Review of Apprenticeships He states that a high quality apprenticeship is an invaluable gateway to a successful career So moving forward a joint effort from organisations employers the government and students will contribute to minimising the demand from engineering firms and an increased awareness and knowledge of STEM skills will boost the number of young people in the engineering industry for years to come Related Posts All Else at France No Comments Jun 25 2015 Gi2C Guide What kind of visa do I need to intern in China 2 Comments Sep 23 2015 Three Best Road Trips to Take No Comments Mar 13 2014 Anzac Day Holidays in Australia No Comments Apr 30 2014 About The Author Carl Browne I m Carl the man behind the tragically unhip com Thanks for swinging by and checking out my site You can hit me up on my email from the contact me page Can t wait to hear from you Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Google Loading Facebook Comments Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Facebook Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Comment Name Email Address Website Notify me of followup comments via e mail You can also subscribe without commenting I m Carl the man behind the tragically unhip com Thanks for swinging by and checking out my site You

    the Goddess of Earth With a powerful throw he cast his axe into the ocean after which the land now known as Kerala emerged from depths and became known as God s Own Country Part of the reason that this myth is so important is that very little is known about ancient Kerala there are barely any written accounts But it isn t really the verity of the story that s important the way the tale has been embraced in local culture both in the past and today has played an important part in shaping Kerala s character The importance of custom and tradition in Kerala today Kerala is still very much a land of customs and discovering these should be part of any holiday here You can find out more about how do so if you visit this website while we ve put together a list of our top recommendations below Ritual theatre and martial art A must see while you re in Kerala ritual theatre and martial art is spectacular Its wildest and arguably most moving form is Theyyam Usually seen in northern Kerala it involves dancers enacting deities in performances that stretch through the night and will usually take place on a beach Mohinattyam meanwhile is the state s classical dance form while Kathakali is ritual theatre used to stage scenes from great epics Temple festivals These are a mainstay of the Keralan events calendar with every temple in the state putting on at least one festival per year While they can vary quite a lot in terms of scale they all tend to feature a combination of drums fireworks ritual theatre and elephants Ayurveda spas The traditional medicine of Ayurveda is a mainstay in Kerala and you ll come across plenty of spas and hotels offering it Common treatments include things you may recognise from modern spas such as herbal steam baths and oil massages Related Posts Achieve Your Dream Vacation While Paying Less No Comments Feb 16 2014 TravelPony It s time to get a great deal No Comments Sep 25 2014 Africa for the adventurous No Comments Feb 19 2014 Insider Tips For Universal Orlando No Comments Jan 19 2016 About The Author Carl Browne I m Carl the man behind the tragically unhip com Thanks for swinging by and checking out my site You can hit me up on my email from the contact me page Can t wait to hear from you Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Google Loading Facebook Comments Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Facebook Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Comment Name Email Address Website Notify me of followup comments via e mail You can also subscribe without commenting I m Carl the man behind the tragically unhip com Thanks for swinging by and checking out my site You can hit me up on my email from the contact me page

  • Beat the January blues - The Tragically Unhip
    well as everything else This is last minute booking so it carries risks of prices not being as low as you might hope but it s certainly worth looking into In my case however I booked during August when there was a flight sale on knowing that I wanted to head to the sun in January and knowing I had plenty of time to save up gave me something to aim towards I then set about deciding on how to get to the airport which didn t take me too long to decide on because I always drive myself there I did toy with the idea of having a break from driving and getting on the train but then I remembered the bruised shins I had the last time I tried it and immediately booked Stansted Airport parking instead I don t know what I was thinking even considering anything else This is a service I rate highly and for anyone able to drive I d suggest you book this for any of your holidays Your car is safe whilst you re away and you have peace of mind as well as a world of convenience The cost doesn t hurt either I often save enough money to book a hotel too I ve stayed in a couple of Gatwick hotels through Airparks and had the perfect stress free start to my holiday January as a result of all this was infinitely better than it ever has been in the past and by the time I returned from the Egyptian sunshine January was nearly over but then I realised we were into the loved up depression that is February Now if there was an argument to book a February holiday that is certainly it Related Posts TravelPony It s time to get a great deal No Comments Sep 25 2014 How to beat the Olympic blues No Comments Feb 24 2014 How to beat the New Year blues No Comments Feb 6 2014 Achieve Your Dream Vacation While Paying Less No Comments Feb 16 2014 About The Author Carl Browne I m Carl the man behind the tragically unhip com Thanks for swinging by and checking out my site You can hit me up on my email from the contact me page Can t wait to hear from you Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Google Loading Facebook Comments Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Facebook Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Comment Name Email Address Website Notify me of followup comments via e mail You can also subscribe without commenting I m Carl the man behind the tragically unhip com Thanks for swinging by and checking out my site You can hit me up on my email from the contact me page Can t wait to hear from you Currency Converter widget is provided by DailyForex com Forex Reviews and News Carl is

  • Travel guide: power sockets around the world - The Tragically Unhip
    world including Asia However other adaptors are needed for Australia New Zealand South Africa Argentina and some regions in China If you re setting off on travels or holidaying around the world it can be confusing trying to figure out the different power sockets used in different countries Electrical systems like electricity prices differ throughout the world But fortunately there aren t that many variations and depending on where you re travelling you may only need an inexpensive adaptor Understanding voltage and frequency The first thing to understand is differences in voltage and frequency Voltage is the potential energy that enables the flow of electrical current and is measured in volts V Frequency is the rate of variations in alternating current AC as electricity is transmitted from the power grid to the socket and appliance It is measured in cycles per second using the unit hertz Hz There are two main electrical systems throughout the world each with different voltages frequencies and physical power sockets In general the first system is found throughout North and Central America and western Japan It uses 100 127V at 60 Hz Most of the rest of the world including Asia Australasia South America Africa and Europe uses the second system with 220 240V at 50 Hz This is all quite simple and straightforward but it s important to remember that as with anything there are exceptions to the rule Other regions that sometimes use 100 127V at 50 Hz include the Caribbean and Tokyo while some South American countries such as Peru and Brazil also use 220 240V at 60 Hz To make things especially confusing some countries have variations in electrical system for example Brazil and the Philippines So it s always worth checking out which system or systems a country uses before you travel there This information can be found easily either online or in guide books Voltage and frequency is the first factor to consider when it comes to determining how you can use an electrical appliance in another country These need to be the same between the appliance and electrical system If the voltage and frequency for a device match the system at your destination then there is no need to be able to convert the voltage If they are different then you will need a transformer or converter Electrical appliances usually accept a range of voltages and small deviations for example between 110V and 120V are generally tolerated Travelling from the UK it is possible that you will need a transformer if travelling to North or Central America though most modern devices are able to handle these variations Look out for the Vac number on the appliance which gives the voltage range tolerated Power sockets and travel adaptors The second consideration is whether your device is compatible with the physical power sockets at your destination Power sockets do vary more than voltage and frequency and it is likely you will need an adaptor Travel adaptors can be bought singly
