The Emirati-Jordanian Refugee Camp to Make University Education Available to Its Residents

A collaboration between SIHO/UniRef, Isra University and Jordan Red Crescent, supported by Emirati corporate aid (Al Badie Group), makes higher education available for more than 750,000 refugees in Jordan.      

 

11/6/2019 – Abu Dhabi, UAE -- When you’re aiming to extend your help until it mends the lives of the widest range possible of victims of endless wars in the Middle East, a massive-scale effort is needed, and the help of various parties must be provided.

A true example of such an effort is the SIHO/UniRef collaboration with its main academic partner, Isra University, to set up a form of Higher Education where the curriculum is Arabic and adaptable to the needs of young refugees in the Jordanian-Emirati camp in Jordan.

Because of the project’s international background, the teaching is done in state-of-the-art methods taking place in classrooms inside the camp with the direct supervision of university professors and instructors. These university programs will lead to diplomas provided by the Ministry of Higher Education.

UniRef has equipped the facility with computer rooms, USB keys and many more. Students will have access to one­year University Education in Computer Science, Mobile Engineering, or Logistic Management. Furthermore, partnering with the Jordan Red Crescent enabled SIHO/UniRef to provide 18­month vocational training programs in a variety of subjects from First Aid to Violence Prevention, with emphasis on providing education to the refugees as well as the host community in order to “promote a spirit of equality and tolerance”.

It’s a habit for Emirati corporations to stand by such a quality leap in lessening the burdens of refugees in the Emirati-Jordanian camp in Jordan. This aid came in the form of Al Badie Group providing financial support for the project as instructed by the group’s management and executed by its CEO & vice president Mr. Khaled Al Badie. Yvelyne Wood (SIHO/UniRef Cofounder) expressed her deepest thanks on behalf of UniRef, to Al Badie Group’s management for their invaluable support.

Facebook paid contractors to transcribe users' audio clips

Aug 18, 2019

NEW YORK — Facebook has paid contractors to transcribe audio clips from users of its Messenger service, raising privacy concerns for a company with a history of privacy lapses. The practice was, until recently, common in the tech industry. Companies say the practice helps improve their services. But users aren't typically aware that humans and not just computers are reviewing audio. Transcriptions done by humans raise bigger concerns because of the potential of rogue employees or contractors leaking details. The practice at Google emerged after some of its Dutch language audio snippets were leaked. More than 1,000 recordings were obtained...

Farms turn to technology amid water warnings in Southwest US

Aug 18, 2019

GREELEY, Colo. — A drone soared over a blazing hot cornfield in northeastern Colorado on a recent morning, snapping images with an infrared camera to help researchers decide how much water they would give the crops the next day. After a brief, snaking flight above the field, the drone landed and the researchers removed a handful of memory cards. Back at their computers, they analyzed the images for signs the corn was stressed from a lack of water. This U.S. Department of Agriculture station outside Greeley and other sites across the Southwest are experimenting with drones, specialized cameras and other...

New Michael Moore-backed doc tackles alternative energy

Aug 18, 2019

LOS ANGELES — What if alternative energy isn't all it's cracked up to be? That's the provocative question explored in the documentary "Planet of the Humans," which is backed and promoted by filmmaker Michael Moore and directed by one of his longtime collaborators. It premiered last week at his Traverse City Film Festival. The film, which does not yet have distribution, is a low-budget but piercing examination of what the filmmakers say are the false promises of the environmental movement and why we're still "addicted" to fossil fuels. Director Jeff Gibbs takes on electric cars, solar panels, windmills, biomass, biofuel,...

Streaming music may make cases like Katy Perry's more common

Aug 18, 2019

LOS ANGELES — To show that Katy Perry and the team that wrote her 2013 hit "Dark Horse" may have heard his song and stole from it, Christian rapper Marcus Gray's primary evidence was that his 2009 song, "Joyful Noise" had plays in the millions on YouTube and Spotify. Plaintiffs in copyright cases like Gray, who won a $2.78 million victory over Perry and her co-writers on Thursday, must prove that the artist who stole from them had a reasonable opportunity to hear a song that was widely disseminated, a principle lawyers simply refer to as "access." But does access...
