Giants general manager Brian Sabean thinks Barry Bonds could be physically ready to play around 120 games for San Francisco next season. “It’s reasonable to think he can play 120 games,” Sabean said Sunday before the Giants’ final game of the year against Arizona. “Now, will we be in a position to have to rest him and be conscious that he’s going to come in some days cranky and not be able to go? The next step is to get him in spring training and get him in a position to be able to do that. I think he wants that.” McKeon’s resignation had been expected, and he confirmed it to the team in the clubhouse before the game. “He got very emotional when he told us, like your granddad is going away and you’re not going to see him anymore,” veteran Jeff Conine (UCLA) said. “It’s tough for him.

SA, Nigeria sign accounting agreement

first_img22 January 2013 The South African Institute of Professional Accountants (SAIPA) has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Council for the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria to facilitate cooperation and allow members to work in both countries, the institute announced last week. The memorandum allows members of the one organisation to become members of the other, which will enable South African accountants to work in Nigeria and Nigerian accountants to practice in South Africa. “Nigeria’s business environment is in strong growth mode, and so offers the South African professional accountant a great new market in which to operate,” the institute’s chief executive officer, Shahied Daniels, said in a statement. “We look forward to working closely with our Nigerian colleagues to build a reliable standards framework that will support bilateral trade and business.” Nigeria is Africa’s most populous country and has emerged as a key trading partner for South Africa. Nigeria has been recognised as one of the fastest growing economies in the world since 2001 and its gross domestic product is believed to average 6.8% until 2015, according to SAIPA. Trade volumes between the two countries also increased to US$30-million in 2012. “Africa is steadily building a business-friendly environment that is attractive to international investors and promotes intra-regional trade,” said chief executive of the Council for the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria, Terkaa Gemade. “This link between two leading professional accountancy bodies in Africa’s two most important economies is an important step in building that environment and offers potential to the members of both organisations.” SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Part I: How Learning Styles Can Alter the Way Military Families Process Information

first_imgHave you ever thought about how your military caregivers, families, service members and colleagues process information?  As helping professionals we tend to take-in information differently as we learn new things and the same can be said for the military families that we serve. By understanding the various learning styles it may help you, the service provider, better connect with families in order to provide the highest quality educational information to meet their individual needs.There are four principles of adult learning identified by Malcolm Knowles, the pioneer of adult learning: (1) Autonomous and Self-Directed, (2) Life Experiences and Knowledge, (3) Goal-Oriented and Relevancy-Oriented and (4) Practical.In today’s blog, we are focusing on principal #1 (Autonomy and Self-Direction) of adult learning and how the learning style can be applied to those you serve.Autonomy and Self-DirectionAdults that tend to favor Autonomy and Self-Direction like to direct their own learning, and often times like to take on the leadership roles. They prefer to be actively involved in learning and work around their personal goals and specific interests.As a service provider, some things to keep in mind when providing education and training to military families is to have them discuss their personal learning goals for the meeting, session or training that you are providing. When you are working with families, help the individual to reflect on what they have learned and set new goals as a result of the reflection. As their provider, there will be times that you need to also help them modify their goals as needed.Over the course of the next few months the MFLN Military Caregiving concentration will be discussing the remaining three principles of adult learning, as well as adult learning styles. Our goal with this series is to provide military service providers with a better understanding of how adults process information and learn. This MFLN-Military Caregiving concentration blog post was published on July 1, 2016.last_img read more
