Your Name and Title: Robert Zenhausern, CEO School or Organization Name: The Enabling Support Foundation Co-Presenter Name(s): Area of the World from Which You Will Present: United States and sub-Sahara Africa. Language in Which You Will Present: English Target Audience(s): Teachers of Early Childhood Development Short Session Description (one line): Education 21 is a paradigm shift in Education from the 19th Century into the 21st Century which expects to achieve SDG 4 within 5 years. Full Session Description (as long as you would like): Education 21. Education for the 21st Century Our goal is not to fix education, but to rebuild it from the start. A Paradigm Shift. We do not want to bring technology into the classroom. We want the classroom to join the 21st Century. Our program, Education 21, emerges from three simple and logical changes. Each is a unique solution, and an unexpected challenge to well entrenched dogma.The Three Changes.Standardized Testing versus Authentic AssessmentIn place of “teach, memorize, test”, we use Project Based Learning and Authentic Assessment.In Project Based Learning the student does not memorize material but must know where to find specific information. How well can the student integrate this information and complete a task. Authentic Assessment evaluates the project as Inadequate, Adequate, or Superior. Replace arithmetic with estimation. In the 19th Century arithmetic was indeed the “gateway” to the sciences and higher mathematics. Since the advent of calculators, that is no longer the case. Arithmetic is a linear rote process with a single answer. Estimation is unbounded and more conceptual. It is a practical skill in cases where close is good enough. We want to explore the limits of estimation, and its use as the fundamental calculator. For those cases where the exact answer is required the spreadsheet becomes a STEM platform it.Subitizing is typically seen as an early childhood skill that is supplanted by counting. But we plan to explore subitizing as a lifelong skill. Examples:A painter looks at a room and decides how many cans of paint he will need. A homeowner wants to build a stone wall and has to decide how many truckloads of stone are needed. Do architects subitize? All this happens without “teaching”. Can we enhance the subitizing skill? Reading.A baby understands the meaning of the spoken word even before speech, but it takes 5 years for the child to understand the meaning of the same word in written form. That is an absurdity that is accepted without question.Reading is a skill that suffers from a self-inflicted wound. The purpose of reading is to develop a connection between text and meaning. From the start we have decided that, because English is a semi-phonetic language, reading should be taught by phonics.That is an epic blunder for two reasons. The first is that it postpones reading by 5 years, while the child learns phonetic decoding.And second, tragically, it is effective for only 80% of readers. The rest are called dyslexic with the heartache and expense that entails.How different speech! Children learn to speak and understand the spoken word as part of maturation. Why not reading? Show the printed word at the same time as the spoken word, and the child will understand both. Early Reading is a form of speed reading – reading for comprehension, not speech.The Peace Flame networkThe Enabling Support Foundation is a US based 501c(3) nonprofit that provides online support to grassroots African organizations involved with human development and enrichment. ESF exists only in the Cloud and encourages online and on ground activity by productive organizations. ESF has created Peace Flame, a network of those organization based on an Office 365 infrastructure. ESF has strong connections within both LinkedIn and WhatsApp.The Birth of Early ReadingESF was founded in 1994 as an organization that provided technology and Internet access to persons with disabilities, and later education. Our Mission was to bring Education into the 21st Century, as first outlined in 1990, evolving with the changes in technology.Reading was the first step. In May 2017 educators from Kenya and Uganda met at Miridians Nursery School near Kampala. One outcome of the conference was proof of concept study at 9 sites in both countries. We found and nursery school children learned to read three sentence paragraphs in the 4 months of the study. As a result, we have reached our first milestone. Children are starting primary school already reading and writing. We are now developing the primary grade curricula to take advantage of the instructional time saved by Early Reading.Early Reading has virtually eliminated dyslexia and spelling is much less of an issue.Early Reading has recently added sites in Ghana, Cameroon, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and Pakistan.We also have a cultural program and we are collecting children’s art for exhibition. You can see a preview now, but the site is still under construction.

Phyllis Chesler: Gilead Resembles an Islamic Theocracy, not Trump’s America
Misogynist thinking and actions exist in America today but not only among right-wing conservatives. It is also flourishing among our media and academic elites. Such thinking is flying high under the banner of “free speech,” “multi-cultural relativism,” “anti-racism,” and “political correctness.” Dare to question this elite’s right to silence and shame those who challenge their views—i.e., that the West is always to blame, that jihadists are freedom-fighters, that the Islamic face veil is a free choice or a religious commandment, that polygamy encourages sisterhood, that Islam is a race, not a religious and political ideology—and, as I’ve noted many times, one is attacked as a racist, an Islamophobe, and a conservative, and swiftly demonized and de-platformed.Most Wars Don't Get Named Until Years After the Fighting Is Done. Others, Like the Yom Kippur War, Are Different.
The confidence of 1967 had turned out to be arrogant pride in 1973; its optimism, the folly of wishful thinking. Although there had been ample indications of the impending Egyptian and Syrian attack, Israel’s leadership had refused to believe it would happen and had not taken the necessary precautions. Menachem Begin, then the leader of the opposition, was speaking for all Israelis when, shortly after the war’s end, he declared in the Knesset:The War of Attrition: The “War Between The Wars”
Israel is the only country in the world that lives in a status called “the war between the wars.” Since it is surrounded by enemies who seek its destruction, even when not in official wartime, it is constantly dealing with small scale attacks from those enemies. The greatest example of this status is the three-year period from 1967 to 1970, a period which is now referred to as the “War of Attrition.”Iranian hackers reportedly targeted Trump 2020 presidential campaign

Late last month, a musician named Alison Chabloz was sent to prison in the United Kingdom for violating the terms of an earlier court decision prohibiting her from using social media — a decision stemming from her dissemination of videos featuring songs she wrote that mocked the Holocaust. In the UK, this story made many of the major papers, but it has hardly registered at all in the United States.Why did UK’s Holocaust memorial events remove references to Jews?
The University College Union in the United Kingdom sent an email to branches that excluded mention of Jews among the groups persecuted during the Holocaust. According to The Jewish Chronicle, the UCU has since apologized. However, in a review of several websites connected to upcoming commemorations of Holocaust Memorial Day 2020, which will be held on January 27, references to Jews appear to be too often missing.Antisemitism in Victorian schools is a monumental and hidden crisis
I well up with emotion when I hear of Jewish kids being subjected to physical assaults, bigoted stereotypes and insults, exclusion, degrading text messages and social media lynching. The day is not too far off when young people will have to hide their Jewish faith so as not to be singled out and vilified by their classmates. The victims are traumatised, filled with feelings of despair and abandonment, convinced that the system has failed them. And they are right.Minister orders review into schools at centre of anti-Semitic bullying

<br>With only 128 of the 193 member countries having paid their dues in full as of October 3, he has reportedly warned UN staffers that the organisation faced a shortfall of $230 million.
The UN's regular budget for the year is $5.4 billion and it is separate from the peacekeeping budget of $6.5 billion.
India paid up its $23.25 million dues for the regular budget on January 30 itself, one of the few countries to pay up on time.
If the funds don't flow in this month from more of the nations in arrears, the UN will likely continue its operations by dipping into its working capital fund temporarily.
One of the reasons for the shortfall is the US, which funds 22 per cent of the UN's regular budget amounting $674 million, not having paid up in full so far.
Because members do not send in their dues at the beginning of the year and the funds trickle in, the UN faces periodic budget crises.
The number of countries paying in full has fallen significantly this year compared to previous years.
Only 127 countries had sent in their contributions this year by the end of September compared to 141 last year.
Guterres had told the General Assembly's budget committee in May, "We are at a tipping point and what we do next will matter for years to come."
"Despite numerous efforts to contain expenditures this year, we are likely to run out of cash in August and, therefore, borrow from the Working Capital Fund," he had warned, but the UN managed to coast along till now.
Guterres wrote to member countries in July last year when its finance went into a crisis mode, "An organization such as ours should not have to suffer repeated brushes with bankruptcy."
The UN has a separate budget for peacekeeping operations, which also operates consistently in a deficit mode.
As India's Permanent Representative Syed Akbaruddin has repeatedly pointed out, this affects the countries contributing troops to UN peacekeeping operations that are owed millions to offset their expenses and salaries of the peace-keepers.
While India can absorb the delay, it can badly hurt smaller countries like Nepal and Rwanda.
