How the aging medical learning will have a renovation through VR–Realistic Immersive Learning

The anticipation was real to save a critical patient, such tools help us practice the most difficult scenarios and be better prepared for real-life cases”

— Najla Naser, Student at Gulf Medical University

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, June 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — As accelerated digitization has changed skill requirements, the workforce of tomorrow demands more active and ongoing approach to training and learning. Virtual Reality–the flag bearer of immersive learning has created an observant shift in the technological mainframe and has added new ways of communication, education and interaction. The whole idea of forging extended reality or replication of possible scenarios through VR is capable to simulate easy and practical learning.

IMMERSIVE LEARNING IS TRANSFORMING EDUCATION AND TRAINING PRACTICES ACROSS THE REGION
UAE has advanced in its operations to include immersive technologies in business, healthcare, and education, since 2015, in order to learn and derive the impact of VR in lowering the cost, reducing time to market, increase profits, and promote competitiveness. His Highness, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum shares his thoughts on UAE’s innovation progress: “UAE has adopted innovation as an institutional approach and a culture of the society that aims at developing its human factor as well as government institutions, as part of its drive to build a sustainable future.”

UAE’s continuous strides in uplifting the economic power balance in the world today can be observed in market predictions announced by IDC or International Data Corporation, which claims that by 2020, the UAE's VR and AR market will jump to $ 6 Billion. Motivated by promising predictions, established UAE universities like Mohammed bin Rashid University are slowly fabricating radical and attested concepts of immersive learning into their course curriculums. Dr. Amer Ahmad Sharif, CEO of Dubai Healthcare City Authority-Education (DHCE) and Vice-Chancellor of Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences (MBRU) quotes: “Our commitment to innovation and excellence only starts here. We’re inspiring a new generation of healthcare professionals who will impact the world with groundbreaking discoveries.” By placing students in an interactive learning environment, a smart transition from benign learning to practical learning will eventually educate them to adapt to any uncontrolled-real-life scenarios.

Dr. Sana Farid (X-Reality and AI Strategist, Munfarid) shared her views during an interview “There are infinite business applications of VR, from test drives to remote surgeries, but the most required and relevant potential of VR lies in healthcare, specifically in terms of exploration, learning forecasts and dissecting complex body engineering. By using virtual reality dynamic prototypes, the ability to depict certain organ movements becomes easier, which is a big breakthrough. ”

VR THROUGH ITS IMMERSIVE LEARNING HOLDS THE ABILITY TO DISSOLVE VARIOUS HEALTHCARE ISSUES
The advancements in Virtual Reality has enhanced scientific experiences and as a result, VR has unlocked the potential of improvising patient education, medical health treatments, fixing brain discordance, medical storytelling, drug visualization and improvised methods to learn body engineering. Virtual reality is proficient in assisting doctors and medical trainees in exploration which was earlier limited to rigid sources.

VR FOR MEDICAL AND NURSING EDUCATION
Virtual Reality allows positive developments in both performances and perceived capabilities of medical aspirants. OXFORD continues to support immersive learning methodologies and has readily adopted VR and AR (Augmented Reality) to provide its students with a new way to increase retention of information. Contributing to the global recognition and adoption of VR, and to best describe the applicability of VR and AR in education and research, the Middle East has progressed in its VR deployment strategy. Physiotherapy companies in UAE are already advancing their technological facilities by incorporating certain concepts of VR and AR for the rehabilitation of cerebral palsy, stroke and motor delay patients.

A student at Queen’s University in Canada, Samantha, comments on her VR training session: “The anticipation was real to save a critical patient, such tools help us practice the most difficult scenarios and be better prepared for real-life cases”. With students now being able to realistically simulate a wide range of clinical solutions, the probability of errors becomes less and the accomplishment rate of practical results gets accelerated.

MIDDLE EAST CONVERGES ITS INTEREST TO WISE AND WIDE ADOPTION OF IMMERSIVE LEARNING IN MEDICAL UNIVERSITIES
A prominent burden to VR in education is technological literacy. To bridge the gap between possibilities and learning, companies like 3D Organon in collaboration with Munfarid Global has introduced comprehensive learning programs in medical universities across the Middle East. Munfarid will focus on the implementation of programs in medical universities, so as medical trainees can visualize opportunities, derive readings and form new solutions, through this reformation in collaborative avatars of teaching atmosphere. By combining real and virtual environments, medical trainees can gain realistic readings and anticipate any patient’s life and death situations with circumstantial scenarios.

Surgical simulation can enhance the training process of medical aspirations as there is a broad disconnect in between combining cognitive and technical skills in the present models of simulation, adopted by a majority of medical universities.

Immersive Learning can become the essential bridge between healthcare practitioners and patients, as the virtual community creates a platform of wide exploration. All it requires is a dedicated implementation.

Simon Saved. One Man’s Relentless Legal & PR Efforts Finally Frees His Dog Sent To “Death Row” By The Government

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A Guilford, Connecticut dog (Simon) who has been in animal control lockup for nearly two years and was set to be euthanized has been released. This comes after prolonged legal and public relations efforts which saw frequent protests outside local government offices.

Dr. David Young, who adopted Simon in 2011, said Simon was seized by Guilford Animal Control after biting a boy (who was trespassing in his backyard) in 2017. Simon was set to be euthanized however, Young refused to accept the grim fate.

“Simon is a huge part of my family and he is the embodiment of unconditional love. I promised Simon from day one that I would never stop fighting for him.” Said Dr. David Young. “Knowing that Simon is finally free is an incredible feeling.”

Young hired both a lawyer and New York based public relations firm, Goldman McCormick. The firm wasted no time in getting Simon’s story to the local community and national media. Young frequently appeared on television and radio programs pleading Simon’s case. There were protests, fundraisers, rallies, prayer circles, and even a large billboard (which cost thousands of dollars) erected on interstate 95 in East Haven saying: "Help Save Simon & Your Beloved Dogs From Guilford Politicians."

“Each week the pro-Simon protests grew larger in size and pretty soon I was getting support letters from people across the country. As public outcry about Simon’s plight grew and pressure on local officials continued to mount, we sensed that it would only be a matter of time before Simon was free. We were right.” Said Young.

Young said his attorney and the town’s attorney came to an agreement that would allow Simon to be released if he was sent out of state. Simon’s new home is on a farm Michigan and David says he’ll be visiting frequently.

“Simon and I are as inseparable as peanut butter and jelly. I don’t think either of us can imagine life without the other. This was a hard fought battle and it was worth every penny.” Said Young.

MARYLAND ENTREPRENEUR CREATES CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK TO COMPETE WITH FACEBOOK SOCIAL MEDIA

Chirp Social Network

The CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK Announced a fully functional alternative social network to Facebook that dose not profit from personal user data.

“I’m excited to bring the CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK
privacy first policy to social networking.CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK enables anyone to ‘hop over’
to totally private networking now.””

— Ricardo De La Cerda

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, US, June 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK announced today that global beta testing has been completed for a fully functional alternative social network that does not profit from personal user data. The developers at CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK say they have unintentionally gone global based on responses from around the world. They are pleased with the initial response from individuals who signed up on their mobile phone.

CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK testers say CHIRP performs like their current social network. CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK is different because it lets users operate with the confidence of total data privacy. Bob Rager, among the beta testers, says “I’ve been unwilling to use the popular Facebook social network very much because of privacy concerns. I also resent not
being paid an affiliate fee for making my personal use data available for commercial purposes every time I log on for anything.”

CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK was created in response to a widely reported dissatisfaction by
some demographic groups who no longer go to the primary social network first for social
communications. CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK Founder Ricardo De La Cerda, a long time
programmer, understood these concerns. He decided to sponsor development of a new
mobile social network for individuals and groups to communicate without feeling that someone
was watching over their private lives. “I’m excited to bring the CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK
privacy first policy to social networking. People use their social network to document their lives.
Many, however, feel cheated that they don’t get an affiliate fee based on money derived from
use of their collected personal data. CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK enables anyone to ‘hop over’
to totally private networking now.”

About CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK
People around the world use social networks such as Facebook to connect with friends and
family plus people from their early lives all the way back to childhood. Now those people can
enjoy the benefits of a new global social network as individuals and groups, both public and
private, for all the same uses and reasons that they have come to expect. CHIRP SOCIAL
NETWORK neither collects cookies nor tracks every single click you make. CHIRP SOCIAL
NETWORK guarantees that it doesn’t sell individual user data.
CHIRP SOCIAL NETWORK…HOP TO IT!

Jamie Cullum leads world’s first 5G music lesson for music-making charity

Jamie Cullum led the world’s 1st 5G music lesson from his piano in London, playing live with musicians in Bristol & Birmingham via 5G technology.

LONDON, ENGLAND, June 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Critically acclaimed musician and songwriter Jamie Cullum, led the world’s first 5G music lesson from his piano at the two thousand year-old Roman Amphitheatre in London, playing live with amateur musicians in Bristol and Birmingham using 5G technology from EE, King’s College London, Smart Internet Lab at the University of Bristol and Digital Catapult.

The event, brought to you by the charity Music for All, demonstrates how technology can remove barriers to learning. The advent of 5G technology will ultimately deliver super low-latency (i.e. low delay) connectivity everywhere, enabling an Internet of Skills where skills can be shared with others wherever they may live, work and play.
Here, we are bringing together music teachers and aspiring musicians. Research shows that making music: helps people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to keep smarter, younger, healthier and more sociable.

An ambassador of the charity Music for All, Cullum taught musicians across the three different venues in a unique multi-site lesson, connecting the three cities across the UK, as if the musicians were playing in the same room. The locations included City of London Corporation’s Amphitheatre, Birmingham City University – Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, and We The Curious in Bristol.

Musicians were connected from London to Birmingham and Bristol via 5G networks from King’s College London and EE.
Commenting on this project, Jamie Cullum, said: “I’m delighted to be part of this ground-breaking event. I believe that the future of music can evolve hugely by adopting the latest technologies, like 5G. Having the privilege to perform with others via the power of 5G can open up new opportunities for artists, enabling them to practise and perform together remotely and communicate at a level that we never thought possible.”

Julian Lloyd Webber, principal of Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, said: "As a world leading institution providing diverse music education opportunities to a broad range of students in a state of the art building, we are absolutely delighted to partner in this global first. Access to exceptional music-making sits at the very heart of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, and our significant investment in technology and venues – including the Eastside Jazz Club – ensures a vibrant and memorable experience for all. We look forward to further exploring the possibilities of 5G in music education following the success of this fantastic artistic endeavour."

David Marshall, chairman of Music for All, said: “At Music for All we believe that by spreading the benefits of making music, we can change people’s lives for the better. The amateur musicians in Jamie’s 5G band really reflect our ethos as any musician from any background could apply for a place. The increasing availability of 5G technology will open up new ways for us to help more people in more places.”

The amateur musicians in Jamie’s 5G band were selected from an open call for applications by Jamie. The band included singer Lexi Milligan, guitarist and singer Jeremy Levif, singer and saxophonist Rosie Patton, singer and keyboard player Taylor Paisley-French, drummer Jakob Terry and bassist Alyson Knott. The band played one track from Jamie’s recently released album – Taller – and one classic track to an audience of two thousand cross the three locations and via a 5G-powered live stream.

The event was hosted by the City of London Corporation at The Roman Amphitheatre and led by Music for All, supported by King’s College London, Birmingham City University – Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, EE, Yamaha, the City of London Corporation, the Smart Internet Lab at the University of Bristol, We The Curious, and Digital Catapult.

Large Protest Against Coca-Cola Animal Cruelty Hits Santa Monica Promenade!

large group of protesters pose for group shot

Protesters Ask Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey to Get Real about Inherent Dairy Cruelty!

some people at protest

Protesters say they will continue this global campaign until Coca-Cola ditches dairy.

woman protester

This woman wept as she described hearing the mother cows bellowing for their babies, who’d been ripped away from them.

mother speaks out

This mother of two said dairy is a violation of everything maternal because mothers and babies are separated!

Hollywood actors, authors, social media influencers, nutritionists and everyday consumers sent a dramatic message to Coca-Cola’ s CEO James Quincey: kick dairy!

In crisis there's opportunity. Coca-Cola can now get out of a dying industry. The next generation is switching to plant-based milk in droves. It's where the smart money is headed! It's cruelty-free.”

— Protester at Santa Monica Demonstration

SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hollywood actors, authors, social media influencers, nutritionists and everyday consumers converged on the Santa Monica Promenade to send a dramatic message to Coca-Cola' s CEO James Quincey: kick dairy to the curb. The explosive undercover investigation by Animal Recovery Mission shows horrific, sadistic abuse of calves and cows – all caught on video – at Coca-Cola/Fairlife's longtime "humane" supplier Fair Oaks Farms.

Demonstrators, wearing cow masks, symbolically spoke up for these voiceless, helpless animals by holding up a dozen plant-based milk cartons and begging CEO Quincey to do the right thing: switch to plant-based milk! Among those speaking: actresses Fia Perera and Simone Reyes, nutritionist Lisa Karlan and New York Times bestselling author/journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell, founder of JaneUnChained.com. In Defense of Animals’ President Dr Marilyn Kroplick also spoke, while holding up one of the several lawsuits filed against the companies. Author/activist Brittany Michelson, social media influencers Those Annoying Vegans, 369vegan and longtime activists Patty Shenker, Eder Lopez, Paige Parsons Roache, Kim Delgado-King, Vanessa Marsot, Lindsey Baker, Sarah Segal, Adam Leo and Renee Marinkovich also gave speeches directed at Coke CEO Quincey. Ilana Bollag, John Hays and others, provided support by holding signs.

Protesters displayed the readily-available alternatives to cruelty-filled cow’s milk. Holding cartons of almond, soy, cashew, oat, rice and hemp milk, demonstrators in cow masks respectfully begged CEO Quincey, Coca-Cola North America President Jim Dinkins and Fairlife COO Tim Doelman to discard their willful ignorance and admit the obvious: their stated values of integrity and high animal welfare standards are inherently incompatible with dairy. Simply put, there is no nice way to rip a baby away from his or her mother, much less do that to tens of thousands of calves.

Actor Kenziah Rubens mentioned that “Ocean Eyes” singer Billie Eilish was so revolted by the Fair Oaks videos, she urged her 26 million Instagram followers to go vegan, noting the animals are being “fully tortured.”

As Fairlife and Coca-Cola are hit with another wave of lawsuits over these gut wrenching videos, grassroots protests are spreading across America and even to the United Kingdom! See the events pages below for protests in London, Houston, Connecticut, Portland and New York City! Still more demonstrations are in the planning stages. A wide array of animal welfare and environmental groups, under the banner Coalition Against Cruelty, are demanding Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey immediately take steps to cut his beverage company’s ties with the cruel and environmentally unsustainable dairy industry.

The Coalition Against Cruelty urges Coca-Cola to switch to healthier, more environmentally friendly and cruelty-free plant-based milks. Coca-Cola’s own website states, “Fairlife is a partnership between The Coca-Cola Company and Select Milk Producers Inc. Coca-Cola distributes Fairlife products.” Fairlife has become embroiled in scandal in the wake of Animal Recovery Mission’s explosive undercover investigation of Fairlife Milk’s longtime supplier Fair Oaks Farms. The video shows calves being hit, dragged, shot, sat on, left on dead piles and, in other ways, subjected to nightmarish abuse. All this while Coca-Cola insists, in its written material, its partnership with Fairlife is based on “…exceptional cow care, smart and responsible farming, and sustainable agriculture.”

Demonstrators implore CEO Quincey to consider the reality: the dairy industry is inherently cruel. For humans to drink cow’s milk, cows must be impregnated and – after giving birth – separated from their babies, who would otherwise drink the mother’s milk nature intended for them. This is why the Animal Recovery Mission’s video shows rows upon rows of calves in hutches, alone, away from their mothers. Protesters point out the obvious. The calves become despondent and don’t want to drink the replacement fluid from the rubber nipples. Workers are tasked with getting them to drink it. Frustration ensues, creating an environment ripe for abuse. This is why undercover investigations at dairy farms routinely undercover abuse. No “review” will change the fundamental cruelty of the dairy industry. No arrest of low level workers will get to the heart of the malignancy at the core of this process.

No desperate attempts to blame the messenger will mask the industry’s harsh realities. Indeed, that will only confirm the moral bankruptcy of the industry’s doublespeak, where shock is expressed over dead piles brazenly left out in the open, where people who systematically exploit animals feign heartbreak and blame underlings when exposed. The playbook has become worn and the world is getting wise to it.

Coca-Cola executives have publicly revealed their strategy to premium-ize milk and, thereby, be able to charge a premium. The Coalition Against Cruelty suggests the wiser strategy would be to pivot to the products being increasingly embraced by millennials and Gen Z’ers: plant-based milks. Coca-Cola’s stated corporate vision includes the following: “Be a responsible citizen that makes a difference by helping build and support sustainable communities.” Animal agriculture, which includes dairy, is a leading cause of climate change, responsible for more greenhouses gases than all transportation combined.

In crisis there is opportunity. A pivot to genuine compassion and genuine sustainability would be applauded globally by animal lovers, environmentalists and consumers in general, all of whom were revolted by the video evidence of barbarism and hypocrisy. Climate change is getting worse and will soon create an economic catastrophe that will devastate all businesses including Coca-Cola. We know this switch can be done because one google search shows it is being done. Coalition Against Cruelty’s protests against Coca-Cola will not end until a real change occurs. The time is now.

Any and all of the companies mentioned above are invited on JaneUnChained.com any time. We have reached out to Coca-Cola repeatedly without success.

From Arizona:

The importance of this effort was also highlighted by a statement from the White House.

Raising awareness of the need for men and boys to live healthy lifestyles is critical to their wellbeing. The life expectancy for men is five years less than women, and men also have higher rates of death from cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Moreover, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports women are 100% more likely to visit their doctor for annual exams and preventative services than men.

Report cards on the status of male health in each state can be found at the State of Men's Health website. Proclamations from every state be found at www.MensHealthMonth.com

“We applaud officials in their states for helping raise awareness of the health issues facing men and their families by recognizing this year’s men’s health awareness period,” said Ana Fadich, MPH, CHES, Vice President, Men’s Health Network, “communities around the globe continue to promote the health and well-being of men and boys throughout the month of June. We hope this year’s awareness period will help men and their families be more mindful of their health starting with a doctor’s appointment.”

Across the country, hundreds of health care professionals, private corporations, faith-based organizations, community groups, and other interested organizations help plan activities and events that focus on men’s health during June, and throughout the year. On June 15, MHN encourages participation in using the #ShowUsYourBlue hashtag on social media where participants raised awareness about men’s health issues by Wearing BLUE.

This year also marks the 25th anniversary of the establishment of National Men’s Health Week, as part of the larger awareness period of Men’s Health Month. The legislation was sponsored by Senator Bob Dole and Congressman Bill Richardson and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on May 31, 1994.

Men’s Health Month and Men’s Health Week are organized by Men's Health Network MHN), an international non-profit organization whose mission is to reach men, boys, and their families where they live, work, play, and pray with health prevention messages and tools, screening programs, educational materials, advocacy opportunities, and patient navigation.
