With these qualities combined, the impact for employers becomes overall workplace improvement.The nature of the training program for the officers will be, as Mr. McDonald said, “Competency based… where results matter.”  This means that learners must be able to demonstrate what they have learned.Examinations are not necessarily written; and the diploma course is flexible with no set duration.  Level 3 comprises 193 guided learning hours for 55 credit values, with each unit earning anywhere between 3-30 guided learning hours.   Topics include: Understanding Health and Safety in the Workplace, Developing People in the Workplace, and Understanding Stress Management in the Workplace.The ILM in the Bahamas currently offers levels 2 and 3 of the Leadership and Management Diploma Program.  However it aims to obtain approval for the remaining levels, 4-7 — level 7 being the equivalent of a Master’s Degree.According to Lieutenant Origin Deleveaux, the long-term goal of the RBDF for this training is to develop leaders among their officers – complementing military training with modern leadership skills: an innovative and strategic decision of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force.The ILM offers this training to individuals as well as agencies, catering to the specific needs of one’s self or team.By: Sydnei L.

After Zero failure Shah Rukh Khan gone on sabbatical

first_imgShah Rukh Khan as Bauua Singh in ZeroTwitterFor the past four years, Shah Rukh Khan has really been struggling to live up to his ‘King of Bollywood’ tag. The burden of back-to-back failures seems to have been crushing the superstar’s confidence with each passing day and it is quite evident from his current choices as well. Even the projects that he had immense faith in had turned out to be a dud at the box office and it looks like the wounded superstar has gone on sabbatical from movies.According to Bollywood Hungama, “Shah Rukh Khan is flooded with a lot of scripts but is taking his time to decide what project to embark on and is not in the mood to work on anything related to acting anytime soon.”After Zero failure, Shah Rukh Khan was so shaken up that he walked out of Rakesh Sharma biopic titled Saare Jahan Se Achha due to the space angle. The film’s writer Anjum Rajabali had said that SRK didn’t walk out of the project but because he was too shocked by the failure of Zero.Till now, Shah Rukh Khan hasn’t announced his new film yet. However, it was reported that he has partnered his production company Red Chillies Entertainment with Netflix to create not one or two but three web projects.Meanwhile, the box office success of Badla starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu has brought some respite to Shah Rukh Khan who had produced it. The movie has been well received by both critics and audience alike and the positive word of mouth has reflected on its overall film collection.It remains to be seen if SRK would be able to bounce back again in the mad race of box office and score a much-awaited hit to his name to break the jinx.last_img read more

Worlds smallest animation character shot with smartphone camera and microscope w Video

first_img Citation: World’s smallest animation character shot with smartphone camera and microscope (w/ Video) (2010, September 24) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-09-world-smallest-animation-character-shot.html (PhysOrg.com) — The title character in a 90-second film called “Dot” has broken the Guinness World Record for being the smallest stop-motion animation character in a film. The 9-mm-tall Dot (whose head is about the size of the tip of a pencil) is a young girl who wakes up in a magical world to find that the flannel shirt she has been sleeping on has begun to unravel. As loose threads threaten to swallow her up, she runs across tiny objects including coins, pencil shavings, and heads of pins to escape. The film, which was created by animators at Aardman Animations in the UK, is a celebration of a new technology that goes beyond entertainment. The film was shot with a Nokia N8 smartphone 12-megapixel camera attached to a 50x magnification microscope called CellScope. Invented by bioengineer Daniel Fletcher at the University of California, Berkeley, the tiny but powerful CellScope allows doctors in poor, rural areas to capture images of blood samples and transmit them via cell phone to laboratories anywhere in the world. In this way, the CellScope should allow doctors to diagnose fatal diseases even when there are no medical labs nearby.

Image credit: Aardman Animations. Watch the film with Dot, the world’s smallest stop-motion animation character. As the creators at Aardman Animations explain in the video below, they had to print about 50 different models of Dot in different poses using a 3D printer because she was too small to move into different positions. The Rapid Prototyping 3D printer used computer-generated images and printed them out on plastic resin. Then the animators hand-painted each model individually. They also painted the set, which was about 1.5 meters long in its entirety. The set moved underneath the camera, millimeter by millimeter, and the animators shot about 4 seconds of film per day. A few thousand frames later, the animation was complete. © 2010 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.
