The wish to preserve the past rather that the hope of creating the future dominates the minds of those who control the teaching of the young. We present background on the notion of practical intelligence as an alternative to conventional conceptualizations of intelligence, and the exploration of the acquisition and utilization of tacit knowledge as elements of practical intelligence. In a funny, stirring talk he tells us how to get out of the educational “death valley” we now face, and how to nurture our youngest generations with a climate of possibility. What schools are encouraged to do is to find out what kids can do across a very narrow spectrum of achievement. The goal is to determine components of actual combat effectiveness. This change is an active, evolutionary educational process that drives the institution to reexamine itself on a frequent basis. The modern workplace requires workers to have broad cognitive and affective skills. The study then assesses how education is used as a power asset in the contemporary security environment. A broad-based education expands and fuels the self-guided growth of one’s horizons. The measure of education, far from being the level or even the sum of formal schooling, rests more in the degree of open-mindedness and active mental engagement it engenders. So-called “wicked problems” unresponsive to set-piece solutions abound. The first was to generate a body of thought on the future of education and training. Our current training and education processes will not adequately prepare our people to cope with these increasing and constantly changing cognitive requirements. Moreover, moving people in and out of schoolhouses is costly and incredibly disruptive to unit cohesion. Where should this culture centric learning take place? Those selected are chosen based solely on job performance rather than for the excellence of their intellect. The price for socialization has been a diminishment in the depth and rigor of war studies within these institutions.

How The Army Can Reach Their Recruiting Initiative | All Branches | Duration 9 Minutes First, every military leader, particularly those whose job is to practice war, must be given every opportunity to study war. Every soldier regardless of grade or specialty should be given unfettered and continuous access to the best and most inclusive programs of war studies. Contemporary distance learning technology allows the learning process to be amplified and proliferated such that every soldier can learn to his or her capacity and motivation. In this scheme the traditional staff and war colleges would focus attention exclusively on a constituency selected principally on intellectual merit. In addition, we find the opportunity to learn directly from others with varied backgrounds invaluable. Intermittent breaks for in-residence education provide contemplative time to put operational lessons into context. The aim must be to create a republic of the intellect open to all, whose natural constituency will be those who keep themselves intellectually aware throughout their lives. The claim to freedom of teaching is made in the interest of integrity and of the progress of scientific inquiry; it is, therefore, only those who carry on their work in the temper of the scientific inquirer who may justly assert this claim. So in place of curiosity, what we have is a culture of compliance. We all create our own lives through this restless process of imagining alternatives and possibilities, and what one of the roles of education is to awaken and develop these powers of creativity. Soldiers and leaders, the meanings of “knowledge” and “learning” are changing. Further complicating the situation will be the ubiquitous media whose presence will mean that all future conflicts will be acted out before an international audience. Now interactive online technologies provide what has been missing with well crafted and intellectually engaging programs. The operational environment is dramatically different than in previous times. We are educating a different generation of emerging leaders who bring incredible experience to the classroom to share. It develops the intellect and inculcates the spirit of inquiry for a lifelong pursuit of learning. Any institution that relies on professionals for success and seeks to maintain an authentic learning climate for individual growth must require its members to read (to gain knowledge and insight), discuss (to appreciate opposing views and subject their own to rigorous debate), investigate (to learn how to ask good questions and find defensible answers), and write (to structure thoughts and articulate them clearly and coherently). Something new is needed to insure that all our forces are competent to do the many tasks that our transformed military will require of them. For some kinds of training it is still appropriate, but lectures are a poor way to instil complex skills. Personal computers, networking, and new training technology now make it possible to move knowledge to the student instead of moving the student to the classroom. Consensus seems to building among them that this conflict was fought brilliantly at the technological level but inadequately at the human level. This new era of war requires soldiers equipped with exceptional cultural awareness and an intuitive sense for the nature and character of war.

How To Have The Best Military Mindset | Duration 5 Minutes 21 Seconds Very few military leaders are fortunate to be selected to attend institutions that teach war. Personnel policies affecting the purpose of senior military education have transformed these institutions partly into meeting places intended to achieve interservice, inter agency and international comity. Every soldier who takes advantage of the opportunity to learn must receive recognition and professional reward for the quality of that learning. Every officer would be given the privilege of competing for a seat in these selective courses in residence. What varieties of men and women prevail in this society and period? There is value in getting away from operational responsibilities to bond with fellow officers, both from one’s own service and from other services, and with civilian and international students. These experiences are especially meaningful at the war college level, but are also valuable for more junior officers.

Things change radically in the more civilized areas of space. Air travel’s convenience makes it the preferred means for most business and leisure travel. We are now 60 years into the jet age of commercial air travel and this industry’s safety and convenience define what “aircraft-like” means to the public. If we are to normalize human space travel, then it must also be made acceptably safe so that working adults—many who have families—will be able to travel to, from, and within space with safety comparable to air travel. If a builder build a house for someone, and does not construct it properly, and the house which he built fall in and kill its owner, then that builder shall be put to death. Congress took steps to impose safety regulations to protect the public and workers from harm and to alleviate some lawsuits by having the federal government assume some responsibility for assuring safety. Industrialization requires the ability to use metals in safety-critical applications—such as steam boilers—where failure can lead to injury and death. The fledgling airlines were suffering an unacceptable number of accidents. Such destructive testing cannot be replicated for typical terrestrial constructions such as bridges, buildings, and dams.

Getting Out Of The Military After 10 Years Of Active Duty | Duration 10 Minutes 7 Seconds In having the final say about the aircraft’s airworthiness, the federal government assumes the duty-to-care responsibility when it issues an airworthiness certificate. The military has comparable airworthiness procedures and processes but extends its oversight role to include performance and mission capability. Per my understanding, with the government inspectors’ independent approval, the business operator’s duty-to-care obligation is met. Also, when an approved product or operation is used, no informed consent is required, absent some further consideration due to age or health. Of course, mistakes can happen and unexpected failures can occur that cause harm. Impacted systems are withdrawn from service until appropriate inspections and changes are made and recertification is achieved. An often-overlooked aspect of this safety regime is that it also helps to shield professionals working in private industry from legal risk. Identified deficiencies will be corrected, often at a substantial additional expense. Practicing professionals benefit because independent safety certification helps to prevent unsafe products and services from entering commercial use and causing harm. The pilot would remain on the ground as the vehicle only carries two people. With final airworthiness certification, the air taxi would operate carrying fare-paying passengers even if this was just for a local “joyride” to see the sights from the air. In modern times, it has also been waived in some areas of intrastate commerce. One common example where state laws permit the use of informed consent is river rafting. The distinction appears to be that such rafting does not exist to transport a person to a destination. Hence, rafting, m ountain climbing, and similar commercial activities are permitted because it is presumed that an informed decision regarding one’s safety can be made. State court decisions determine any exceptions to the use of informed consent. The inherent presumption appears to be that a typical adult can, of their own accord, determine whether the risk is acceptable such as is now done for entertainment rafting. At what level of complexity does it become unreasonable to expect that a typical adult can, of their own accord, make a determination whether the risk is acceptable? For commerce to develop in space, companies will require employees to travel to space. What is being developed is fancy river rafting trips for the wealthy.

Should You Join The Military | Duration 2 Minutes 14 Seconds With choke points (like jump gates), this is easy, but with arbitrary-location jump drives, this becomes tricky. Many aircraft also have collision avoidance systems, which provide additional safety by warning pilots when other aircraft get too close. If it blows up, that’s too bad about the people on board, but it’s their problem. They inspect aircraft and related equipment for airworthiness. The manufacturing type inspect the aircraft before it is even made. It was eerie to be speaking to a man who was already as good as dead. His chief medical officer, who had proposed the plan, was already explaining it to the crew. Especially with the safety of our children being paramount, the public has high expectations for the safety of air travel. For aircraft, acceptable safety is achieved through airworthiness certification. How it is accomplished is up to the engineers, provided acceptable safety can be adequately demonstrated to an independent federal agency legally charged with protecting the safety of the involved and non-involved public. Improperly prepared foods and drugs caused illness and death. In addition to civil engineering—focused on roads, bridges, canals, and ports—mechanical engineering emerged to handle industrialization. Government engineers and pilots, especially for military systems, have access to and often directly observe the airworthiness testing and undertake government flight testing. This shields the business operator from legal claims of harm except where negligence can be proven. When this happens, safety criteria and requirements are modified to try to prevent a reoccurrence. Intentional acts resulting in unsafe products or services may have both civil and criminal consequences. One such prototype two-person air taxi has received an experimental airworthiness certificate permitting test flights with two people on board to simulate passengers being transported by the taxi. There is no reason why this model of handling technology advancement should not be applied to commercial human spaceflight. Under some circumstances, such as war or piracy, this obligation is waived. Informed consent in voluntary commerce—as opposed to medical treatment—ethically requires that a reasonable person understands the risks. Not being a lawyer, it is my understanding that the legal presumption is that the simplicity of rafting enables responsible adults to make an informed decision regarding the inherent risks of injury or drowning. Further, the adult can physically inspect the equipment and question the operators to enhance their understanding and evaluation of the risk. Thus, an informed consent approach appears to be the way commercial human spaceflight is now being pursued. If it would not be ethical for the company to demand that employees consent to using air taxis that are not airworthiness certified, why would it be ethical to demand that they consent to travel to and from space on flight systems that are not airworthiness certified? Congress was told to stand aside and just let private industry takeover. Further, the operators of the suborbital systems now being developed appear to plan to rely upon the informed consent approach to safety. While some people champion this as progress, clearly it is not. The federal government is working closely to make this a success. For the former, airworthiness is a serious cost factor and it is baked into the manufacturing process of aircraft.

I can think of twenty adjectives – fatuous, pointless, absurd. However, he soon decided that a direct adaptation would not work well, and began to craft a new story, using only the basic outline of the novel. The medical officer hesitantly diagnosed a failure of his optic nerve, and he was told he would never be allowed to fly again. His appeals were fruitless, and he was left with nothing to do. Lee said in an interview in 2005, “all they do is write a story and try and fit the character in somewhere, which is very clear when you see the films.

I have to work fulltime and attend my undergrad classes fulltime, so it’s pretty rough on me. The military has always just worried me, especially with the whole war on terorr thing, and even many reservists getting deployed. As a cadet, you would be able to do continue with your undergraduate studies. Even if you join as a cadet, you are not guaranteed anything in the future. For instance, in my boyfriend’s case, he wants to be a pilot. The more you talk to people, the more you are able to make well informed decision. And that’s only if you don’t get stationed at a big medical center like lackland where shift work could prevent you from taking any classes at all. I can respect the fact that you want to join the service to give your family a better life. I have tried to get on with five different hospitals to get some more experience, and have been turned down by each. I have to work fulltime and attend my undergrad classes fulltime, so it’s pretty rough on me. In my boyfriend’s case, he will be a cadet for four years before he becomes an officer. A lot of people do their undergrad while they are cadets, and then they continue onto graduate school in their respective areas of interests. There is a member in my boyfriend’s detachment now who is a cadet and is planning to become a doctor. I said that it would be slow becuase if you are limited to taking nite time classes, if you have a class with a lab, then there is not much time for other classes. Once you finish all of your volumes you have to take a final called an “end of coarse exam”. While you are in upgrade training, which could take a year, you cannot take college classes. While in upgrade training and after you finish, there are military courses that you must attend. The bottom line, if you want to become a pharmacist, pursue becoming a pharmacist. Choose an option like one of these, if you want to serve your country. You could potentially have to wait 4 years before you can even go to pharmacy school. Once you go through basic training, and tech school, you are in what is called upgrade training. You must study your volumes, each volume has questions and end in an exam. So my point is that its not like you just get up every morning and go to work and do your job, there are other things you must do. But you’ll be doing so at the expense of your ultimate goal, which is to go to pharmacy school. But by staying in school and moving towards your pharmd, i honestly think you’ll be doing more for your family in the long run. We do this because we believe that the health education process is too expensive and too competitive. The volunteer teams works very hard to make sure the community is a valuable resource for all our fellow members. We reinvest our revenues into site improvements and development of new resources for the student doctor academic community.

Brief Comparisons Of Air Force and Naval Service by navycs.com

Nothing better than a late night prepared meal/snack after liberty! Both services are recognized for being “high tech” but there is one major difference most people are unaware of. We all have very important jobs to do and in truth we all count of each other. The opinions expressed are my own, and may not be in-line with any branches of the government or military. As we drove back to the recruiting station, each of the applicants voiced a certain level of amazement of what they saw it first hand. During a six month deployment you may have the chance to experience multiple countries and cultures (remember they are near beaches). Kind of a big deal when you talk about life after the military.

Comparing Military Pay and Benefits To Civilian Jobs by military.com

On the other hand, the military lifestyle carries much more responsibility. You must be on time to work – there are no “getting stuck in traffic” excuses – or face punishment. You usually do not have the option of saying “no” and just quitting when you feel like it. Many things are either substantially cheaper or free in the military: look at travel and education. Often you must pay your own, or pay partial amounts & co-pays. Most employers start you at 10-14 vacation days per year, with little increase until you have worked several years. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Zhao is one of dozens, if not more, of immigrant military recruits and reservists struggling this summer with abrupt discharges and cancelled contracts. You will work with other people, have a boss, and have to exhibit initiative if you want to get ahead. You must consistently be well-groomed, live up to working and presentation standards, and talk to others according to specific rules. Here is a table of some common aspects of life that would be important no matter what you choose to do. But there is a catch: you must first spend more to get yourself educated. Finally, the pride that you will have by serving your country is a tremendous feeling that can matched by few jobs elsewhere. With tax advantages, pay is comparable to civilian sector pay. In larger companies, you may have opportunities, but often have to work much longer hours. In some cases, you may retire after just 15 years in service. Most employers will require you to work 35 or more years before retirement.

If I Entered The Military Would I Lose Custodial Rights To My Child? by dadsdivorce.com

I am considering enlisting in the military to help get my life back on track and eventually provide my child with a better life. People are often surprised about what can be negotiated in active duty enlistment contracts. You should consult with an attorney licensed in your state to see if your state offers such a protection. This might be something you should ask the court to consider. Several states have passed legislation over the last ten years to protect the rights of military parents while they are stationed out of state or overseas. No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.

If an representative resists, they say”congressman, have you seen our new golf course? “. He spazzed about the idea that his wife’s younger brother’s friends might somehow tank his security clearance unless he made us “behave”. Navy deployments are 6-12 months, with underway periods that are not considered deployments, but can last up to 3 months. I don’t think they ever figured out why we treated them like spoiled brats.
