Impresionantes ilustraciones comparten las historias de ocho cachorros mamíferos.

Las ilustraciones panorámicas muestran los lazos familiares y la educación científica temprana para los niños de habla hispana y los salones de clase bilingües.

Las elaboradas ilustraciones expanden el conocimiento de los niños sobre los detalles científicos, desde las particularidades de los hábitats hasta los cambios a los cuales se someten los animales.”

— Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert, profesora de Estudios Hispanos, Vassar College

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Science Naturally está encantado de anunciar que su más reciente libro sobre los animales, This Is How I Grow, ahora también está disponible en español como Así crezco.

Las historias de los animales en Así crezco celebran lo que une a todos los mamíferos, promoviendo la empatía, amabilidad y compasión en los jóvenes lectores. Como el libro más reciente en la colección Beginnings, Así crezco les presenta a los lectores ocho embajadores animales diferentes provenientes de diferentes hábitats alrededor del mundo.

Este hermoso libro comunica que la niñez es el período en el cual los mamíferos dependen de su familia y de su comunidad. En viñetas de dos páginas, cada bebé mamífero ofrece un monólogo sobre sus experiencias durante su nacimiento, cuidado y destete antes de explorar la gran variedad de habilidades que debe aprender para poder sobrevivir y prosperar. Desde los murciélagos que aprenden a volar hasta los elefantes que aprenden a controlar sus trompas, las mamás animales y otros animales en la comunidad ayudan a los pequeños a desarrollar las herramientas que necesitan para cazar o buscar comida. Esta es una estrategia cautivadora para los niños de 7 a 10 años, quienes acaban de empezar a explorar lo que significa ser “grande”.

De acuerdo con Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert, profesora de Estudios Hispanos en la universidad Vassar College, “las elaboradas ilustraciones capturan y expanden el conocimiento de los niños sobre los detalles científicos, desde las particularidades de los hábitats hasta los cambios físicos, emocionales y ambientales a los cuales se someten los animales”. Y Don Wilson, del Museo Nacional de Historia Natural de los Estados Unidos dice: “Este libro proporciona historias sobre animales familiares que están bien ilustradas y son científicamente exactas, además de ser fáciles de entender”.

Así crezco también ayuda a llevar valiosos conceptos sobre las ciencias de la vida a los hogares y salones de clase de los aprendices de inglés. Los estudios demuestran que los maestros de ciencias que no hablan español aún pueden enseñarle de forma efectiva a los aprendices de inglés si les proporcionan materiales traducidos a su idioma natal. Además, un estudio de casos de los aprendices de inglés en el 2014 reveló que proporcionar materiales traducidos puede ser importante “como una herramienta para entender y ganar fluidez en el inglés académico”.

La autora, Dia L. Michels, dice: “Sabemos que hay una escasez de recursos adecuados sobre CTIM en español. Esto perjudica bastante a los estudiantes que hablan español y a aquellos que provienen de familias que hablan ambos idiomas. Esperamos que este libro sea un pequeño paso para cerrar esa brecha”.

El libro original en inglés (This is How I Grow, marzo de 2020) recibió el premio de Libro del Año otorgado por Creative Child Magazine, un premio Feathered Quill Book y un premio Brain Child.

La parte de atrás del libro contiene preguntas que motivan a los lectores a profundizar en el texto visual. Estas páginas de referencia permiten que los padres y educadores aborden las preguntas que los jóvenes científicos podrían hacer al explorar las páginas. Una completa Guía del Maestro, la cual está disponible para ser descargada de forma gratuita, ofrece más información, actividades prácticas y expresiones de los Estándares de Ciencias de la Próxima Generación (NGSS, por sus siglas en inglés), lo que hace que este libro sea un recurso científico inestimable.

La autora Dia L. Michels es una escritora galardonada de libros de ciencias y crianza que ha escrito o editado más de una docena de libros para niños y adultos. Este es su cuarto libro que explora temas científicos por medio de historias de animales. Estudiar a los mamíferos le ha ayudado a apreciar la simplicidad e importancia de la crianza con apego y la lactancia materna. Es madre de tres hijos adultos y vive en Washington D.C.

Award-Winning STEM Picture Book About Animals Now Available in Spanish

Así crezco cover image

Así crezco, the Spanish edition of This Is How I Grow, will be released by Science Naturally on October 7.

Así crezco bat illustration

Stunning illustrations share the stories of eight mammal babies.

Panoramic illustrations showcase family bonding and early science education for Spanish-speaking children and dual-language classrooms.

The intricate illustrations capture and expand a child's awareness of scientific detail, from the specificities of habitats to the physical, emotional, and environmental changes animals undergo.”

— Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert, professor of Hispanic studies, Vassar College

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Science Naturally is thrilled to announce that their newest animal-themed book, This Is How I Grow, is now also available in Spanish as Así crezco.

The animal stories in Así crezco celebrate what unites all mammals, while fostering empathy, kindness, and compassion in their young readers. As the newest book in the Beginnings collection, Así crezco introduces readers to eight different animal ambassadors from habitats around the globe.

This beautiful book conveys that childhood is the period of time where mammals must rely on their family and community. In two-page vignettes, each mammal baby soliloquizes on their birth, nursing, and weaning experiences before exploring the incredible variety of skills they must learn in order to survive and thrive. From bats learning how to fly to elephants gaining control of their trunks, animal mothers and others in the community help their young develop the tools they need to hunt, forage, or scavenge. This is an engaging approach for children ages 7–10 who are just starting to explore what it means to be “all grown up.”

According to Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert, professor of Hispanic studies at Vassar College, “The intricate illustrations capture and expand a child's awareness of scientific detail, from the specificities of habitats to the physical, emotional, and environmental changes animals undergo.” And Don Wilson, from the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, says, “This book provides nicely illustrated and scientifically accurate, but easily absorbed stories about familiar animals."

Así crezco also helps bring valuable life science concepts into the homes and classrooms of English language learners (ELL’s). Studies show that science teachers who don't speak Spanish can still effectively teach ELLs if they provide their students with materials translated to their native language. Additionally, a 2014 case study of ELLs in science class revealed that providing translated materials can be important “as a tool towards understanding and gaining fluency in academic English.”

Author Dia L. Michels says, “We know that there's a scarcity of adequate Spanish-language STEM resources. This is an extreme disservice to Spanish-speaking students and those from mixed-language families. We hope this book will be one small step toward closing that gap.”

The original English book (This is How I Grow, March 2020) received a Book of the Year award from Creative Child Magazine, a Feathered Quill Book Award, and a Brain Child award.

The back of the book contains questions that encourage readers to delve more deeply into the visual text. These reference pages allow parents and educators to address the questions young scientists are likely to ask as they explore the pages. An extensive Teacher’s Guide, available for free download, provides further information, hands-on activities, and articulations to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), making this book an invaluable science resource.

Author Dia L. Michels is an award-winning science and parenting writer who has authored or edited over a dozen books for both children and adults. This is her fourth book exploring science topics through animal stories. Studying mammals has helped her appreciate the simplicity and importance of attachment parenting and breastfeeding. The mother of three grown children, she lives in Washington D.C.

Wesley Davies is an artist from New England who specializes in illustration and comic art. He received a B.A. in anthropology from Kenyon College, earning Phi Beta Kappa honors. He provided spot drawings for Platypus Media’s 2018 publication Babies Nurse. This book marks his debut as a children’s book illustrator.

SafeZone app

The SafeZone App is part of the overall SafeZone solution.

Latest wave of adoptions driven by framework agreement enabling rapid procurement

Thanks to the framework agreement we have in place, public agencies can move ahead with rapid procurement. We look forward to working with many of Australia’s public agencies in the coming months.”

— Glenn Farrant, CEO & Co-founder, CriticalArc

SYDNEY, SUTHERLAND NSW, AUSTRALIA, September 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Thousands more public sector employees in Australia are to benefit from 24/7 safety support, enhanced lone-worker protection and organisation-wide emergency response following the adoption of SafeZone® by key government agencies.

The service, from CriticalArc, has been adopted by the Australian Tax Office (ATO), Sydney Trains, the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Crown Victoria, the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and – in the first use of the technology by an Australian public healthcare provider – St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney.

This new wave of adoptions, with multi-year contracts, comes after the successful deployment of SafeZone by Sydney Trains and New South Wales Transport. The procurement framework agreement originally put in place as a result of the ATO contract, now allows more rapid, easy adoption by other public agencies, both locally and nationally.

SafeZone is already widely used in the higher education sector, in Australia and globally, and has become the most popular single-platform solution to enable organisations to manage all personal safety, security and emergency situations more quickly, effectively and proactively to better protect their employees. It enables individual users to call for assistance and receive rapid response at the touch of a button, and provides the tools for their organisation to manage an optimal response to any situation.

Geo-fencing allows users to be protected by SafeZone even when they are working remotely. It allows individuals to request emergency help or general support and ensures that their location can be immediately pinpointed by first responders. When used with integrated indoor positioning functionality it allows users to be located to within three metres, even in multi-floor buildings.

The service makes it easy for organisations to manage a wide range of situations, mitigating risks to staff and customers and strengthening the capacity to respond to incidents and emergencies. For example, at

Sydney Trains the technology puts up to 2,500 front-line staff directly in touch with security control room teams, and now covers more than 175 urban and suburban stations.

Mark Edmonds, Sydney Trains’ Manager of Security Capability, Network Operations says this is protecting employees on crowded city platforms at rush-hour and those working alone at night in remote suburban stations.

“Sydney Trains is committed to fulfilling our duty of care to all of our staff and enhancing our high safety standards in order to maintain and enrich customer service levels on station platforms. Employing proven technology such as SafeZone will help us solve day-to-day challenges, further improving the safety of our staff and helping them work more effectively to continue to deliver world-class service.”

Glenn Farrant, CEO, CriticalArc, welcomed the latest adoptions across Australia’s public services as significant step forward for improved employee safety and duty of care.

“It’s great to see the technology’s benefits being recognised by visionary teams in many sectors.” he said. “Thanks to the framework agreement that we now have in place, public agencies can also move ahead with rapid procurement. We look forward to working with many more of Australia’s public agencies in the coming months.”

He added that SafeZone has also played an important role helping organisations adapt to the challenges of COVID-19. Thanks to its ability to be deployed rapidly – in recent cases in as little as one week – it is enabling users to ramp-up preparations for safe returns to work, and helping with the re-opening of sites in compliance with stringent new requirements.

SafeZone has proved itself to be a high value service that’s highly adaptive and is giving organisations a tangible boost to employee safety and wellbeing.

Pandemic Insurance Advice from Consultant Artur Hiaeve

Pandemic Insurance Advice from Consultant Artur Hiaeve

MIAMI, FL, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As an insurance consultant in Miami Beach, Artur Hiaeve has seen firsthand the dramatic industry effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. All areas of business, including insurance, had to change operations to stay afloat during uncertain times. As a top insurance consultant, Artur Hiaeve has critical advice regarding insurance policy management during the pandemic.  

Types of Insurance
The most common misconception witnessed by Artur Hiaeve is the idea that the pandemic will only impact the health insurance industry. Although health insurance needs change due to the coronavirus, all types of insurance products adjust in a post-COVID society. Homeowner’s insurance is one type of option that surprisingly must undergo re-evaluation during the pandemic. Policyholders and business owners must consider any inclusions and exclusions in the plan if shutdowns have led you to work out of your home.

Another type of insurance product that will change too due to the coronavirus is travel insurance plans. No carrier is likely to include COVID-19 as a peril on the coverage. The only way COVID-19 will be part of a travel insurance policy is if hotels or airlines cancel trips and close down due to the pandemic.

Within the health insurance industry, a concern is the difficulty of subscribers maintaining insurance. As businesses shutter, employees are terminated and left without an employer-sponsored health insurance plan. Approximately 12 million Americans lost health insurance coverage as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. These individuals have limited options that may include COBRA coverage or a plan through the Affordable Care Act marketplace. The challenge of COBRA and private policies is that coverage costs are high and not usually affordable for those out of work.

Businesses and Insurance Options
Artur Hiaeve advises businesses to carefully evaluate insurance needs throughout the pandemic. He works directly with clients to plot out insurance buying that makes the most fiscal sense in an extended pandemic period—future business planning projects whether a business will undergo a significant shakeup due to COVID-19. For instance, if the company must change its business structure to survive the economy, insurance policies and inclusions could need revisiting.

According to Artur Hiaeve, additional coverage is commonplace for businesses concerned over the pandemic’s long-term effects. As an example, directors and officers liability insurance protect shareholders in the case of legal action related to coronavirus claims.

Artur Hiaeve resides in Miami Beach with his family and has more than two decades worth of insurance experience. His consulting expertise allows him to make comprehensive insurance recommendations with low overhead costs to clients.

How Companies Can Embrace eLearning, Tom Harford Explains

Thomas Harford

eLearning Offers Benefits that Many Companies Have Yet to Embrace, Tom Harford Explains

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Companies across every industry look to keep employees trained and up-to-date on the latest trends and techniques within their field. Quality training and education is also considered a top benefit for employees to have. eLearning can offer a wide array of benefits, and Tom Harford, a consultant that focuses on innovative learning explains how companies can make the most of it.

Tom Harford spent decades as a teacher and administrator. Finally, he realized that his true passion was helping others to decide how they were best going to learn a particular subject. It’s when he chose to become a consultant, focusing on eLearning.

As former Columbia Dean Tom Harford explains, one of the main reasons to engage in eLearning is because of the options that it allows. Particularly within the workforce, many employees don’t have the ability to take an entire day off for training. It slows down productivity. Further, it can be difficult to follow along when training seems to go on and on.

eLearning can be done from anywhere. As long as there is an internet connection, an employee can log in and take the course. In some instances, the instruction is pre-recorded. In other instances, the instructor is live, making it possible to have a Q&A session with those who are taking the course. Former Columbia Dean Tom Harford explains that employees can choose to take the training from their office, within a training room, or even at home.

When eLearning is used by companies, it can make it easier for employees to truly grasp the material. Tom Harford is quick to remind employers that everyone learns in different ways and at different paces. It only makes sense to make eLearning regularly available. Employees may choose to watch the course a second time. It can also be a way for employees to go back and rewatch segments after they have had some hands-on experience with what they have been learning about.

Hiring an instructor to present material for a day can be expensive and ineffective. What happens when an employee is out sick that day? What happens when an employee has too many questions? The problems can go on and on, and former Columbia Dean Tom Harford has seen many of these issues first-hand.

Regardless of what a company wants to teach their employees, there are eLearning opportunities that are available. It’s all about realizing that learning over the computer is going to be the best option to ensure that everyone can learn in a way that works for them. Tom Harford recommends that a company sit down with a consultant to explore the eLearning methods that can work best given the subject, the amount of time that is available to work with, and more.

In the end, Tom Harford believes that eLearning can work for any employee.

Annet Libeau Discusses the Physical and Psychological Benefits of Scuba Diving

BOCA RATON, FL, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Scuba diving is an excellent source of exercise and can be performed alone, in groups, professionally, and recreationally. While many people try scuba diving while on vacation, long term-scuba diving can actually be good for both your physical and mental health. “I love to travel,” says Annet Libeau, an avid scuba diver. “And to me, scuba diving feels like a natural extension. Being underwater is like seeing a whole new world.”

Scuba Diving Can Lower Your Blood Pressure Says Annet Libeau
“When you first dive into the water, your heart rate and your blood pressure will spike slightly,” says Annet Libeau. “But this is because of adrenaline and the cold water.” Most of the time, even in tropical waters, the temperature of the water you dive in will be colder than body temperature. When your whole body is immersed in cold water, the blood vessels constrict to conserve heat. This can cause your heart to race. 

“But once you warm up throughout the dive by swimming, your heart rate slows and your blood pressure lowers significantly. You have to breathe slowly and deeply when you are diving. It brings oxygen to your body and helps you remain calm underwater. I’ve been diving for years and when I slip into the water, it’s almost like being in a meditative state,” says Annet Libeau.

Scuba Diving Is Excellent Stress Relief Says Annet Libeau
“The slow even breathing you learn as a diver induces a state of calm,” says Annet Libeau. “And while you’re floating and observing the new aquatic world around you, it’s like all of your cares just drift away.” 

Because scuba diving requires a lot of concentration and coordination, it pulls your focus from your everyday worries – work, family issues, stress about money, etc. All your problems can be forgotten for a short while. Giving your mind and body a break from these stressors gives your nervous system a chance to reset and return to it’s natural balance. Many studies have proven that a calm, relaxed mind promotes positive thinking and a more balanced reaction to stress. 

Annet Libeau Discusses Scuba Diving as Exercise
“A lot of people picture scuba diving as floating around underwater. It doesn’t seem like a very strenuous activity,” says Annet Libeau. “But swimming underwater requires a lot of stamina. You’re swimming against the resistance of the water. It’s low impact, but it’s excellent exercise.”

Swimming is an excellent, low-impact form of cardio that can increase muscle strength and flexibility while strengthening the cardiovascular system. 

Annet Libeau is the President and CEO of Sun Day Consulting, a software consulting company. She resides primarily in Florida and scuba dives as often as possible. She also writes and publishes science fiction novels with her father.

Dr. Elizabeth Amato Discusses Effects of COVID-19 and Importance of Voting

Caring about local elections invests individuals in their communities. It's true participatory democracy. You have a heightened responsibility to care for your local community”

— Dr. Elizabeth Amato

BOILING SPRINGS, NC, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 2020 election is less than two months away. How will the COVID-19 pandemic affect turnout and voting? “No one actually knows,” observed Gardner-Webb University Assistant Professor of Political Science, Dr. Elizabeth Amato. “COVID-19 has shifted the usual playing field for both political parties.”

Amato is more than a casual observer. Politics and the American presidency are among her scholarly interests. In her classes, she stresses to students that voting is an important responsibility. In the following Q&A, Amato shares her thoughts on the issues surrounding the upcoming election.

Q: When looking at national level candidates, has the COVID-19 crisis impacted how people view both sides?
Amato: Absolutely. What will matter most of all is who voters praise or blame for the handling of COVID-19. Who will Americans hold responsible for the suffering COVID-19 and ensuing policies have caused? Who will Americans praise for their leadership and mitigating the worst of a bad situation?

Republicans really thought that they were going to run on the pre-COVID economy (a rising tide raises all boats), job creation, and plentiful appointments to the judiciary. Democrats really thought that they were going to run on Trump’s impeachment, an economy that has not served all Americans equally well, some fiery rhetoric about climate change, and hopes for progressive judicial appointments. COVID-19 upended those expectations, tossed 'em around like a hacky sack, and danced a jig on their heads.

Voters must evaluate candidates based on their performance during the crisis or their promises about what they will do. Voting during a crisis is much harder than during normal times. It’s risky and voters know that their decision will change lives.

The upside is that voters know that their vote matters for their fellow citizens, their friends, neighbors, and their loved ones. During an emergency, we better understand how precarious and precious self-government is.

Q: We have seen a great rise in the media on the topic of voting this fall, how does voting by mail impact election results?
Amato: Voting by mail is like voting in person. Voters should have every confidence that if they mail their ballots, they will be counted. Aside from a very few positions, the United States Postal Service is a civil service institution, and its members are hired on merit and regardless of their political views. The U.S Post Office is an amazing organization and more than capable of delivering ballots to citizens and receiving them. Don't forget this is the same organization that handles about 2.5 billion pieces of mail during the Christmas season.

Some things you can do: Request your absentee ballot early. Read carefully all the instructions on the ballot. Mail it in at least a week before the general election on Nov. 3.

Q: Does the coronavirus have the potential to impact voter turn-out, swing voters, and the makeup of the electorate, if so, how?
Amato: It’s not if COVID will impact voter turnout, it’s how. If I knew how COVID will impact turnout and the electorate, I’d be a senior campaign manager in high demand. America has had plenty of previous crises and emergencies that overlapped with elections. Lincoln and the 1864 election during the height of the Civil War springs to mind as the most challenging. But none presented a challenge in which voters might be too concerned for their health to go to the polls.

There are two opposing forces on voter turnout. People might stay away from the polls out of an abundance of caution. Or, they may make the effort to go to the polls since so much is at stake with the election, namely, our political leadership during the rest of this pandemic.
I'll go out on a limb here and make a few predictions. The great thing about studying politics is that you learn to be bold in making predictions. Not because you’re likely to be right, but because human beings are unpredictable and fascinating.

My predictions are likely disappointing—the numbers aren't going to shift that much. Because they rarely do. Crisis or not.

Seniors are always reliable voters, and I predict that seniors will still come to the polls or turn to absentee ballots. Seniors may be more strategic when they vote, favoring early voting or the early morning, but vote they will.

The bigger issue with seniors is that there's likely to be a decline in volunteers to serve at polling stations. Seniors are almost half of all polling stations volunteers.

People are always hopeful that the young will have high voter turnout and shift the election. This is wishful thinking. It’s wishful thinking because people want to "lock in" young voters as either Democrats and Republicans.

COVID won't draw more young people to the polls however much it affects their lives. If more young people go the polls, it will be out of concern for social justice reform and the racial justice protests from this summer.

Q: What do students need to know about voting—why is it important to vote?
Amato: You should vote.
When I ask students why don't they vote, they respond that they think it doesn't matter—their vote won't make a difference. You should vote because you hold a precious portion of the sovereign power of the American people. Voting is important not because you’re going to swing the election your way, but because it’s up to you to use that power well. You are morally accountable for how you used the political power that belongs to you. So vote and vote thoughtfully. It is a grave and awesome power to vote. Vote according to your conscience and what you believe to be true.
