Speech therapists, also called speech language pathologists, diagnose and treat students for speech, language and related disorders. If you become a speech therapist, you will provide services in elementary , secondary or post-secondary schools, helping students improve their language and communication skills, and leading them to stronger academic performance. Depending on the school, speech therapists may work with students individually or in groups, providing treatment in a classroom or office. They assist students using audio-visual aids, physical strengthening exercises, instructive or repetitive practice, and other means. A hour work week is normal for speech therapy teachers, with additional hours worked as needed for lesson planning and related activities. Teachers in smaller districts may travel to different schools throughout the week to provide speech pathology services. Many schools hire speech therapists on a continuing 9- or month contract basis to match the school year calendar. In the United States, over colleges and universities offer speech language pathology programs accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech Language Pathology.

Money is about more than numbers: emotions are often at play too. Just as you can seek professional help for unhealthy issues in life, financial therapists can help you deal with problems related to money. Financial therapy is the practice of helping people with how they think, feel and behave with money to improve their well-being, according to the Financial Therapy Association. It's a relatively new niche. The FTA—a professional organization created to set standards for the industry—was established in and began to offer certifications this year, FTA president Meghaan Lurtz said. The service is generally provided by a financial or mental health professional.
Facebook Twitter Email. CNN — Today's explorers can livestream around the world as they plunge deep into bottomless ocean chasms. But years ago, a voyage on a ship meant saying goodbye to loved ones, potentially forever. And the absence of smart phones, the old-time equivalent of posting photos on Instagram was sketching scenes from travels in a journal, knowing they might never be seen by another soul. Author, historian and traveler Huw Lewis-Jones has compiled intricate and striking images drawn by sailors into a new book: " The Sea Journal: Seafarers' Sketchbooks. Plates from the book include vibrant maps of the Venice Lagoon, witty cartoons of fellow sailors, descriptions of discoveries and detailed diagrams of sea creatures.
Artificial intelligence AI is a branch of computer science and engineering that deals with intelligent behavior, learning, and adaptation in machines. John McCarthy coined the term to mean "the science and engineering of making intelligent machines. Examples include control systems; automated planning and scheduling; the ability to answer diagnostic and consumer questions; and handwriting, speech, and facial recognition. As such, it has become an engineering discipline, focused on providing solutions to real-life problems, software applications, traditional strategy games like computer chess, and various video games. Artificial intelligence is being used today for many different purposes and all throughout the world. It can create safer environments for workers by using robots for dangerous situations. In the future, it may be used more for human interaction; for example, an automated teller would actually be able to do visual recognition and respond to one personally. Conventional AI mostly involves methods now classified as machine learning, characterized by formalism and statistical analysis.
Our research is concerned with the application of laser-based techniques in chemistry and materials science. We study the mechanisms of chemical and photochemical reactions, the spectroscopy and structure of reactive intermediates, atmospheric chemistry, analytical applications of laser spectroscopy, optical properties of aerosol particles, and laser ablation for thin-film deposition. Our work includes processes that occur in the gas phase, in liquids and at the surfaces of materials. Congratulations to Ed Mahoney for success in his PhD viva. Ed is spending Read More.
This research investigates the approaches that organizations apply to implement project portfolio management PPM. We have compared theory and practice to find out how organizations can benefit from PPM. The study finds that PPM consists of three tasks: 1 screening, selecting, prioritizing and allocating resources to project proposals, 2 monitoring and reprioritizing running projects, and 3 tracking and managing the realized benefits of projects. We have found a number of opportunities for improvement, since most investigated organizations do not adopt all three tasks. We have found that of the three approaches mentioned in the theory, our respondents use only two. Devoting more attention to the actual outcomes of projects can help organizations to improve their screening and selection process, as well as to take corrective action when intended outcomes are not attained.

Pastafarianism a portmanteau of pasta and Rastafarianism is a social movement that promotes a light-hearted view of religion and opposes the teaching of intelligent design and creationism in public schools. According to adherents, Pastafarianism is a "real, legitimate religion, as much as any other ". The "Flying Spaghetti Monster" was first described in a satirical open letter written by Bobby Henderson in to protest the Kansas State Board of Education decision to permit teaching intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in public school science classes. Pastafarian tenets generally satires of creationism are presented both on Henderson's Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster website, where he is described as "prophet", and in The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster , written by Henderson in The central belief is that an invisible and undetectable Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe. Pirates are revered as the original Pastafarians. Because of its popularity and exposure, the Flying Spaghetti Monster is often used as a contemporary version of Russell's teapot —an argument that the philosophic burden of proof lies upon those who make unfalsifiable claims, not on those who reject them.
