This is very important in order for the students to learn new things and for them to discover their strengths and weaknesses at the same time. If children are given numerous opportunities and avenues, then the more that they could explore and eventually maximize the potential that they have been graced with.

World-Class Facilities

And this is exactly what the Kingswood School wants for their students. In fact, they have invested in multi-million-pound facilities in order to establish their STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) and Innovation Center. On top of this, they could also boast their Music and Drama Centers at its Preparatory School.

Starting at the age of 7, Kingswood School anchors themselves on their goal of producing outstanding students by providing them with highly competitive curriculum which could undoubtedly transform their lives in a very positive way.

Pursue Their Passion

Kingswood also believes that their students must pursue their passion in whatever fields they want and thus they provide scholarships so their students’ talents and aptitudes could be nurtured by dedicated teachers and staff.

Aside from the sciences, Kingston also promotes excellence in art, drama, music, design and technology in order to uphold astounding artistry and for their students to explore novel concepts which are not necessarily within the scope of their curriculum.

In line with this, Kingswood even organizes dynamic drama productions and it is a popular thing among their students. In fact, they even offer extra-curricular lessons in a Drama Club for students in Years 7-9, wherein students could effectively improve their confidence and acting skills.

It could therefore be concluded that the success of the best international school in Thailand, along with the other schools in the world, is not only measured by their facilities but also on how they hone their students to be talented and skilful across disciplines.

Group For Foreign-Trained Lawyers Launching In Ontario

Published by:

For a criminal lawyer in Brampton trained outside of Canada, or any lawyer new or coming back to the country, there’s more than a few hurdles to deal with when it comes to plying one’s trade. One of the latest initiatives for these lawyers is the formation of an organization specifically for them.

Global Lawyers of Canada Society was recently founded, with a chapter in Alberta, British Columbia, and will be hosting its first event on Sept. 25 in Ontario, at Gowling WLG’s Toronto office, as explained by Ontario chapter’s Lauren Heuser, one of the leaders of the chapter, alongside Melanie Capobianco and Sam Gebrael.

Heuser says that internationally trained lawyers, as much as she could speak for an entire collective, all have tangible strengths, and are a serious option for firms across Canada, whether they’re looking to become a criminal lawyer in Brampton, or a defence lawyer in Ontario. She notes that these lawyers are either Canadians who travelled abroad to train, or are foreigners born and trained outside the country.

Notably, the launch of the GLC Ontario comes hot on the heels of the Osgoode Hall Law School’s newly christened event in June; Internationally Trained Lawyers Day, as well as the May launching of the NCA Network, a networking group for Canada’s internationally trained lawyers.

Heuser studied at the University of Toronto, and, back in 2017, published a research paper on the challenges that internationally-trained lawyers face, which noted that Canada’s legal system’s current structure is not built in such a way that it would allow any competent lawyer to make their best contributions to the field, regardless of where their jurisdiction lies or where they were trained.

Heuser says that part of the stigma is rooted in a key fact; that Canada has a high number of law schools operating there, and the idea that Canadian-trained lawyers are the ones who understand the Canadian legal system best. What can be overlooked, is the fact that internationally-trained lawyers get their accreditation finalized with Canada’s NCA, then move on to the provincial licensing bodies, who will then assign them their full credentials, as deemed fit. At that point, she explains, foreign-trained lawyers, in the eyes of the Canadian legal system, are just as fit to operate in Canada as the local talent.

The GLC’s founding coincides with Canada’s increasing awareness of their internationally trained lawyers, spurred on by Ryeson University’s law school is getting pushes to start train Canadians looking to go abroad.

Justice Canada Tweet Leads To Confusion

Published by:

A recent Justice Canada tweet got a lot of attention from many a DUI lawyer, as the tweet, now deleted, suggested that people could be charged with drunk driving, even after 2 hours have passed from the last driving trip.

The key issue is the part of the tweet that notes that it’s against the law to have blood alcohol levels above the legal limit within two hours of driving.

A Vancouver-based criminal defense and DUI lawyer, Paul Doroshenko, notes that the tweet means that law enforcement can charge anyone who drinks two hours after driving, even if they drove completely sober.

Doroshenko describes it as a big fear, and something that people are deeply concerned about. The Justice said that they’d never do that, but here’s a tweet suggesting that they’d do exactly that. He says that the tweet says a lot about what the government has in mind for the recently implemented drunk-driving laws, which were ushered in 2018.

Justice Canada, however, followed up their deleted tweet with a correction, saying that it’s not actually possible for law enforcement to legally come into someone’s home, two hours after a drive, then ask for a breath sample.

The department explains that, under the old laws, drivers could argue that they couldn’t be slapped with an “over 80 mg” charge if they drove immediately after their drinks, due to the delay alcohol has before kicking in. The new laws, however, account for this, and drivers will find themselves in need of a DUI lawyer if they have blood alcohol at or over 80 mg within 2 hours of having driven.

The new laws are meant to stop people from using the ‘intervening drink’ defense, which says that getting out of a car, then drinking, is the reason for someone’s high blood alcohol content. The law, it notes, does allow for limited exceptions, like when a driver drinks after driving, and wasn’t really expecting the need to have to provide a breath sample, noting that any charges can only be pressed if:

  • The vehicle was stopped lawfully;
  • The driver must actually be driving, caring for, and controlling the vehicle, and;
  • The police officer has the device on hand.

There are schools of colourful fishes that flock together as they float with the tides. Do not miss the opportunity to experience a giant aquarium.

The social media campaign #ProtectMaldivesSeagrass to save seagrass beds in Maldives has gained momentum. According to Blue Marine Foundation and Maldives Underwater Initiative, at least 25% of the resorts in Maldives have joined the campaign. 30 resorts have pledged their support to protect an estimated 830,000sqm of underwater seagrass meadows.

According to the calculations of The Edition, an online news service in Maldives, another 90 resorts need to participate to put an end to the destructive practice of stripping out seagrass in lagoons that are close to  luxury resorts. Some resort managers assume that seagrass spoils the clear picturesque lagoons that tourists usually observe.

Blue Marine Foundation condemns the practice of stripping away natural seagrass beds for cosmetic reasons that is why it initiated the social media campaign. Some resorts have continued with the practice in their lagoons in spite of the number of pledges to end seagrass stripping on the seabed.

Blue Marine Foundation is requesting for the support of the government, resorts, travel organizations and tourists so that they can put an end to seagrass removal. Tourists can help by challenging resorts who still cultivate nude lagoon seabed by stripping away seagrass to make way for selfie photos. Tourists are encouraged to book at resorts that respect marine ecology and protect seagrass.

More than 1,600 persons from the local and international communities’ have registered their support in protecting seagrass in Maldives. Seagrass is very important because it prevents beach erosion, fights climate change, provides food for the turtles and provides a habitat for juvenile coral reef fishes.

A magical experience awaits you at Maldives luxury villas with its exceptional facilities and amenities. The villas are designed for comfort and absolute privacy but to make your stay more memorable, join dolphin tours and watch the dolphins playing in the waters.

Medi-Cal: California Covers Health Insurance Of Undocumented Inhabitants

Published by:

Throughout the bustling streets and towering buildings of California, it is undeniable that the state houses a considerable number of undocumented citizens. As much as how health insurance for expats in Thailand is easily accessible as a number of companies are generously offering it in the Asian country, California has once again proven that it is one of the most un-Trump states in all of America as despite the rigorous process from where the policy has undergone, it has still managed to make its way through.

Funds

The Medi-Cal or the California health care has been one of the primary advocacy of Gov. Gavin Newsom which is estimated to cost around a hundred million dollars and will encompass at least a hundred thousand people. Despite of the high expenses which the project entails, California still became the first American state to cover the health insurance of their illegal immigrants. However, according to the regulations, only those aged nineteen to twenty-five could be the ones to avail and enjoy the Medicaid program.

Criticisms

Meanwhile, before the passage of the policy, United States President Donald Trump straightforwardly expressed his thoughts saying that the program was nothing but crazy. Nevertheless, despite the various criticisms that Gov. Newsom has received, he still pursued his plan as he saw the need for such reform in the state. Apparently, Gov. Newsom affixed his signature on the measure on the day when an average premium increase of lower than one percent for next year was forecasted in California’s individual insurance marketplace. The drop was deemed to be the lowest rate ever in the state program’s history.

Medi-Cal share a few resemblances with the former President Barack Obama’s health care law. In addition, California is also projected to acquire a surplus of at least twenty billion dollars which is technically the highest in twenty years.

Indeed, the quality and accessible health care insurance for expats in Thailand may serve as stepping stone for other countries to implement their own versions of the health care law as well for the benefit of all.
