U.N. Security Council Live

Live session of the U.N. Security Council was televised showing many countries, such as China, Turkey, South Africa and the EU with  the UK Ambassador to the UN as spokesperson calling on Israel to restrain from using live ammunition against the protesters.  This emergency situation arose due  to the killing of 62 Palestinians mostly young people.  Israel’s Ambassador to  the UN together with the US Ambassador was saying no country would tolerate attack on her border therefore the right action was taken.  The US rejected an inquiry into the matter and it has been suggested that the US has become part of the problem not the solution. Israel and US felt there were men from Hamas among the protesters and they were using the innocent prople as human shields In order to get through the fence.  It was a divided assembly even the U.N. Special    Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process spoke passionately about finding a solution quick before the situation worsens.  Two States, Israel and Palestine living next too each other  in peace is the goal to strive for.

Inspirational Story

Where do you serve?

A nurse held a birthday party for her two year old.  She invited her colleague’s six year old daughter and the all the children had immense fun.  On the way home the six year old wanted her mother to take her to the Mall to look at toys, gifts and take pictures.  As children do, the little girl thought it was too early to go home.  While in the shop a lady dropped one of her items.  The nurse took it over and said, ” You don’t want to miss this precious item to give to your special someone.” The lady indicated it was for her mother, who is going to like it and the two shook hands and introduced themselves.  The nurse noticed the texture of the lady’s hands and mentioned that she must be busy.  “Oh yes, I serve in an airline company”, the lady replied.  The nurse added, “It must be exciting being an air stewardess.”

‘I served as an accountant for 5 years,  I had a great time serving there, I liked  numbers,  but I quit to study marketing.  Though suggesting she could probably still do both,  the nurse could see the steely determination of the lady.  They parted ways with another handshake and goodbyes.  What struck the nurse was the lady’s emphasis on the word ‘SERVE’.  She saw how ‘WORK’ always so sounded like ‘LABOUR’ This stranger had given her something to think about and share the essential essence of serving to many people.  Work is Labour that earns money or benefits.   Serve is service stretching out to help graciously with no demands for rewards yet it is motivating.

We normally ask, “Where do you work?”  So next time, try saying,   “Where do you serve?, or ” I serve in a …………company or in a hospital” as the case may be.  Remember your title or role doesn’t matter your heart matters.

A Vet’s Unique Mobile Business

Before midnight of the 3rd of March 2009 a plan-to-action moment happened that made Dr Wendy McClelland an entrepreneur.  The vet drove around the icy streets of her town, Airdrie, Alta, in her green Saburu Outback posting the homes with milkbone doggie treats and flyers.

She was advertising her new Mobile veterinary business.  She got 2 calls the next day, she was excited.  Validation came of the need for her unique  business when a dozen calls followed in the ensuing days and weeks.

 Today, Vet To Go  employs 31 people and is a compassionate in-home care one-stop business.  Its spot was 72 on the 2017 Profit 500, a ranking by the Fastest -Growing Companies in Canada.

Dr Wendy McClelland is the Chief Medical Officer, and co-owner with Greg Habstritt, a series entrepreneur who started advising the business on service, product, accounting, branding, in fact all aspects of business not familiar to her.

Inspirational Story

Rebel education is being practised by Elisa Guerra at her school, Colegio Valle de Filadelfia in Mexico.  Starting with a pre-school, she now has a primary and secondary schools too.  She had volunteered for 15 years at the Institute of Achievement of Human Potential and had no desire to teach.  When she felt her son was losing his individuality at school she decided to  set up her own school.  She took what she had learnt while volunteering  and applied it to the education in her school. Children start at 3 years of age, sometimes at 2 and the teaching methods stimulate the children’s interests, skills and abilities. They are able to start using the full potential of both sides of the brain. She created a school fit for the 21st century increased by boosting brain development and motor skills.

Some of the lessons the children learn are physical activity, gymnastics, woodwork, art, music, algebra, reading, playing musical instruments, different cultures, languages and role play.  She also goes into the community to introduce the flash cards system and demonstrate how a mother’s  loving, unique soft voice was the best tool to communicate this.

With the mother siiting and facing the child, the mother tells the child  she is going to learn about parts of the body. The mother then reads the flash cards quickly in a happy voice, with the word facing the child.  Each day the flash cards must be read three times.  It is important to read to their children, it prepares them with a good level of reading, speaking and social interaction for starting school.

Despite personal and  financial challenges she succeeded and expanded to Brazil.  Elisa was nominated for the ‘Best Educator in Latin America ‘ award and she was a finalist, in the top 50 of the 2015 Global Teacher.
