PH is chair of Asean tech-voc education council

first_imgThe country now chairs the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Council for 2020 to 2022, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) said Thursday.TESDA Sec. Isidro LapeñaThe council was officially launched on Wednesday, September 16, during the virtual High-level Ministerial Conference on Human Resources Development for the Changing World of Work, hosted by the Ministry of Labour – Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) of Vietnam. The council’s mandate is to become “a multi-sectoral/cross-sectoral body that provides a platform for coordination, research and development on innovations and monitoring of regional programs that support the advancement of TVET in the region.TESDA is the lead proponent of the Asean TVET Council, having proposed its establishment in 2017 during the country’s chairmanship of ASEAN, with the purpose of harmonizing regional initiatives on TVET and responding to the changing demands of the labor market caused by the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).“The initiative stemmed from the challenges posed by the 4IR, which was somehow just starting to gain attention back in 2017. However it was the uncertainties of the digital and technological transformation that made us realize the need for a unified approach among the key players in skills development – both from the supply and demand sides,” TESDA Secretary Isidro Lapeña said.Secretary Lapeña noted that the establishment of the Asean TVET Council is a landmark achievement in TVET as it affirmed the increasing recognition, confidence, and support of all the Asean member states (AMS) on the role of TVET in attaining socioeconomic development.The council consists of representatives of AMS from the economic, education, and labor sectors, including business and industry sectors, among others.With TESDA’s leadership, the council will be developing a Work Plan in which priorities will include strategies to enhance industry participation, and address emerging issues brought by the ongoing pandemic,  technological transformations, and other developments or disruptions.It shall intensify convergence among the AMS on labor market information system, TVET researches, and capacity-building and quality assessment for trainers.TVET quality assurance in AMS, implementation and financing, and the improvement of TVET image are also among the identified objectives.“Our strategies will be inclusive and sustainable – to provide employment and livelihood opportunities for all, especially for the disadvantaged, marginalized, and out-of-school youths, “ Lapeña added.TESDA is looking forward to hosting the 1st meeting of the Asean TVET Council in 2021.

Also, doing current MLB logos and past logos as well. Explanations as to why you chose which teams you chose would be greatly appreciated as well…Top Five:1. New York Yankees (a classic among classics, has the Uncle Sam hat on a bat)2. Colorado Rockies (love the use of the purple and the baseball soaring pass the mountain)3. Kansas City Royals (something about the crown always enamored me, even when I was a youngin back in the 70s)4. New York Mets (another classic from my childhood, awesome use of color and city backdrop)5. Seattle Mariners (the use of the compass is really cool, love the colors too)(Honorable Mentions – Philadelphia Phillies, Arizona Diamondbacks, Milwaukee Brewers)Bottom Five:1, WORST – San Diego Padres (just a bland color, the bland white SD logo, and I hate when the logo says “baseball club” at the bottom)2nd worst – Minnesota Twins (again just the team name on a circle, at least in front of a baseball, but again that annoying “baseball club” nonsense at the bottom)3rd worst – Chicago White Sox (all it says is “Sox”, not even WHITE Sox….)4th worst – Cubs (just “Cubs” in a circle…yawn)5th worst – Giants (just “Giants” in front of a baseball)(Dishonorable mentions – Indians and the grinning guy, Tigers with the bland boring old English D as their logo, Miami Marlins, would prefer they kept the old logo).What are your top and bottom five and why?THROWBACKS:Top 5:1. California Angels (the outline of the state with Angels written inside)2. Milwaukee Brewers (ball in glove)3. Florida Marlins (1993 – 2011 loved it)4. Seattle Pilots (clever artwork to me)5. Houston Astros (mid 70s til early 90s w/the baseballs orbiting the Astrodome)Bottom 5:1st WORST – St. Louis Browns bug headed looking guy2nd worst – Seattle Mariners when they had M’s in front of a baseball, uber lame3rd worst – Philadelphia Phillies w/Phil & Phyllis4th worst – Detroit Tigers late 60s til early 90s, the goofy looking tiger in the circle where it said “Detroit Tigers”5th worst – Anaheim Angels late 90s….blech…. 64 Thanks Thor.

Favorite “Bucks” unexpectedly suffer a loss against Orlando – Basketball –…

first_imgThe Milwaukee Bucks was the best team in the regular season in the league, while the Orlando Magic had a balance of 33-40 for the playoffs. Orlando won by 23 less than Milwaukee and in the fight against the team represented by the league’s MVP Janis Adetokunbo in the role of the latter, but it all had zero weight tonight, because it was Orlando who won.Orlando took the lead throughout the game, keeping ahead by about ten points. The Bucks were always expected to make a breakthrough and put things on the shelves, but Orlando knew how to dampen those breakthroughs in time and maintained at least a five-point lead throughout the last quarter, winning quite safely in the end (122: 110).“Magic” threw 16 long shots and almost perfectly executed free throws (18/19). Great game performed by Nikolas Vučevičs – he scored 35 points and 13 rebounds. Surprisingly, the Magic was also superior in terms of reservists’ contributions, as Derrill or DJ Augustine scored 11 points and 11 assists, while Terens Ross scored 18 points.Milwaukee’s level was held by Adetokunbo, who scored 31 points, 17 rebounds and seven assists, but also five errors and remarks. However, the Bucks lacked the lead of the other leaders (Middleton 14 points with 12 shots, Bledso collected 15 points), as well as made mistakes from the penalty line (missed ten out of 28 penalties).It is interesting to look back at last season’s “play-off” introduction, when “Magic” also unexpectedly won the first game of the series, doing so against the “Raptors”, but Toronto played, won 4-1 and later took the title.Round 1 of the NBA playoffsCoupleGame 1Game 2Game 3Game 4Game 5Game 6Game 7In the seriesEastern ConferenceBucks (1.) – Magic (8.)110:1220-1Raptors (2.) – Nets (7.)134:1101-0Celtics (3.) – 76ers (6.)109:1011-0Pacers (4.) – Heat (5.)Western ConferenceLakers (1.) – Trail Blazers (8.)Clippers (2.) – Mavericks (7.)118:1101-0Nuggets (3.) – Jazz (6.)135:125 P1-0Rockets (4.) – Thunder (5.)Resources used:The official site of the NBA | NBA.comlast_img read more

2015 Orioles preview: Brad Brach

first_imgWith Opening Day just over two weeks away, we’ll take a look at a member of the 2015 Orioles every day as they try to defend their American League East title this season.March 9 – Adam Jones March 10 – Chris Tillman March 11 – J.J. Hardy March 12 – Zach Britton March 13 – Chris Davis March 14 – Wei-Yin Chen March 15 – Jonathan Schoop March 16 – Travis Snider March 17 – Kevin Gausman March 18 – Alejandro De Aza March 19 – Tommy Hunter March 20 – Manny MachadoRHP Brad BrachOpening Day age: 28Contract status: Under club control through the 2018 seasonMinor-league options remaining: None2014 stats: 7-1, 3.18 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 7.8 K/IP, 6 HR, 62 1/3 inningsWhy to be impressed: One of the more unheralded acquisitions last winter, Brach emerged as a reliable member of the bullpen in 2014, even pitching 2 1/3 scoreless innings in the postseason. The right-hander averaged 7.8 strikeouts per nine innings in 2014 and showed the best fastball velocity of his major league career while mixing in his slider effectively. Why to be concerned: Brach experienced some control issues in 2014, averaging 3.6 walks per nine innings pitched. Left-handed hitters posted a .776 on-base plus slugging percentage and hit four homers off Brach in 110 plate appearances last season. Opponents’ .253 batting average on balls in play indicates the former San Diego Padre experienced some good luck in his first season with Baltimore. 2015 outlook: Closer Zach Britton and others have said Brach has some of the best stuff of anyone in the bullpen, and he’ll have a few more opportunities in late-inning situations with the free-agent departure of Andrew Miller. His walk rate and fortunate BAbip are signs that Brach is unlikely to post an ERA in the low 3.00s again, but an ERA between 3.50 and 3.75 appears to be a fair projection.last_img read more

Bills release WR Terrelle Pryor, report says

first_imgThe move comes one day after Buffalo waived quarterback Nathan Peterman. NFL free agency news: Bills release quarterback Nathan Peterman Terrelle Pryor’s tenure in Buffalo is over already.The Bills have released the veteran wide receiver after he appeared in just two games for the team, ESPN reported Tuesday. Pryor began the season with the Jets, logging 14 receptions for 235 yards and two touchdowns through six games before a groin injury led him to being cut Oct. 20. He then signed a one-year contract with the Bills but failed to make a lasting impression as he had just two catches for 17 yards. Related News The 29-year-old’s best season came in 2016 with the Browns when he caught 77 passes for 1,007 yards and four scores.A third-round pick of Oakland in 2011, Pryor also has had stints with the Raiders and Redskins.last_img read more
