A misty road journeying up the migratory path of the Águila Cuaresmera, or Swainson’s hawk (Buteo swainsoni), by way of the Biological Research Station run by Fundacion Rio Cócora, where the movements, populations, nesting behaviors, reproductive status, and biometrics of these incredible raptors are currently being studied.
At 23,000km (14,000miles) the swainson’s hawk is likely the longest migrant of any North American raptor.
Veterinary care and local education outreach is also provided by the founder, Dr. Pedro Bahamon, a true lover and protector of these hawks.
I joined Dr. Bahamon on an education outreach program to a small school nestled high in the mountains near an enormous waterfall to talk with kids about the amazing birds that live in and pass through this area and why we should protect them.
So while many of you were either paying your taxes, or rejoicing in the fact that the IRS system crashed, more than 700 @handsonshanghai Volunteers were participating in @gooddeedsday .
500 of which went to the beach and took 800kg of trash out of the ocean, and 165 of which engaged more than 600 university students to return empty bottles, clothes, books and other reusable/ recyclable items across 15 campuses.
Just another small example of the work that is being done by individuals here, as part of the wider Good Deeds Day movement... and we look forward to participating again next year!
Be the Change! Volunteer!
"I grew up as an introvert, with inferiority complex and low self-esteem. I didn't have many friends, was afraid to voice my opinions, always avoided stage participation despite my interest in dance and motivational speaking. I thought of myself as ugly who couldn't carry long hair, so I kept it short. I fell in love once but it damaged me even more, because of my insecurities which were exaggerated even more due to my inferiority and low self-esteem. I rarely took photos of myself and even if I did, I found myself to be "not good enough always". It was like a cage to live in the continuous spiral of insecurities and loneliness. But then a time came when I lost many things at once. My relationship, my job and many other bonds with friends and family. It was like the darkest phase of the night, but the sun rises just after that, right? That's what happened in my life. It was the most difficult yet the most beautiful time of my life, because it made me what I am now.
I whined and grieved but gradually I came out of the delusion that it's not possible to live happy alone! I did not forget to love though! I started loving with even more intensity as I was free from all insecurities now. All that love made me comfortable with self, gave me confidence and transformed my personality. I started achieving milestones that I could only dream of achieving before! I have better relationships now, and have realised that you can love anyone completely unless you love yourself with all your heart. Maybe it was my difficult childhood that gave birth to the limitations i had, but I don't feel sad about it. Because outgrowing all these limitations have made me stronger and confident! It has given me a sense of achievement and the ability to fulfill my dreams!"

Учить английский по мультикам эффективно и легко!
1. Простые слова и грамматика.
Цель мультфильма — познакомить ребенка с окружающим миром, поэтому в них вы не найдете сложных слов и грамматики, сленговых выражений и т. д. Фразы героев построены просто, используется базовая лексика.
2. Повторение слов и фраз.
Герои мультсериалов, как правило, имеют характерные фразы, которые они будут повторять из серии в серию. Повторение — мать учения, поэтому такие выражения и слова быстро отложатся в памяти.
3. Разная продолжительность.
Большая часть мультфильмов — это сюжеты от 10 до 30 минут, а бывают и вовсе 2-минутные.
4. Доступность для начинающих.
Мультфильмы бывают не только развлекательными, но и обучающими, причем доступны они даже начинающим «с нуля».

The spouses of Joint Base senior leaders enjoyed an incentive flight with the 305th Air Mobility Wing at Joint Base MDL, March 27, 2018. They observed first-hand how the entire MDL community is involved with prepping and executing a training mission, and cemented the importance of all agencies' contributions to the mission of rapid global mobility.

This past week I had the honor of presenting at the Association for Equality and Excellence in Education on the importance of mentorship for first-generation, low-income college students .
Having mentors in your life is super important and mentorship early in life, especially for underrepresented students, is even more crucial. Guidance, support, encouragement, connection—all ways mentors can help students! .
I talk about peer mentorship, as well as faculty and community mentors as well. Having someone in all facets of life helps make sure you have well-rounded support! Who’s your mentor?? .
We're happy to celebrate our wins and learn from our losses, but we also know the importance of staying #humble , but not self-conscious and being #ambitious , but not self-centered. #education#curiosity
