Prayers for the pressure TCI sixth graders in final day of big

first_img Ministry of Education introduces pilot program GSAT results are out NATIONAL GRADE SIX ACHIEVEMENT TEST (GSAT) Related Items:akierra missick, grade six achievement test, gsat, six graders Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 28 May 2015 – Around 300 sixth graders are hoping they meet all expectations when it comes to the critical GSAT examinations. The tests sometimes have an infamous reputation for the amount of intensity linked to the days of exams which ultimately qualify students for entrance into seventh grade or earns them scholarships through various donors if they turn out top performing results. Bearing that in mind, several schools at the start of the week held prayer meetings for their children and even the Education Minister says she is praying for the candidates sitting the tests. Deputy Premier, Hon Akierra Missick said too that: “This is a big day for our Primary School students as months and even years of hard work, late nights, extra classes and much hard work from parents is now here. I am so proud of the efforts of all the children, parents, teachers and principals. This is a very important time for our students and I encourage them to be calm and remain composed.” The tests are Mathematics, English and Science and the Education Minister explained that teachers and parents moved to have the GSATs shortened to alleviate some of that pressure. Today is the final day of the Grade Six Achievement Tests.last_img read more

Stranger Things 4 Everything we know about the next season

first_img Tags 4 Stranger Things season 4 might start filming in October Watch the Stranger Things cast play their own video game Stranger Things season 3: Rad ’80s details you might have missed Fans can’t wait for Stranger Things to return. Netflix Warning: Spoilers for previous seasons of Stranger Things ahead.We’re ready when you are, Netflix. Stranger Things has to come back for a fourth season, right? Just because the streaming network hasn’t yet officially announced season four, we believe it’s coming. After all, the creators, brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, have said they wanted four (or even five) seasons of the 1980s-set horror-sci-fi series.Netflix didn’t respond to a request for comment, but we fans have reason to hope. According to CNET sister site ComicBook.com, a listing from film trade publication Production Weekly indicates the sci-fi/horror series is going to begin shooting a fourth season in the fall of 2019. The basicsStranger Things took the streaming world by storm when it debuted in the summer of 2016. Set in the small town of Hawkins, Indiana in the 1980s, the show begins with the disappearance of young Will Byers. It turns out that researchers at Hawkins National Laboratory have opened a gate to the creepy alternate dimension known as the Upside Down. And they’re apparently also experimenting on a group of special children, one of whom, known as Eleven, escapes and befriends Will’s group. See all the Stranger Things season 3 photos 59 Photos Commentscenter_img Since then, viewers have been introduced to hideous and deadly demogorgons and demodogs, met various other children with psychokinetic powers, and lost a variety of beloved and not-so-beloved characters. Part of the show’s charm is its varied young cast, who feel like real friends, and its nostalgic setting. (The third season took viewers back in time to Starcourt Mall circa 1985, from Orange Julius sipping to Glamour Shots-style photo snapping.)Season three earned stellar ratings from critics and fans alike. CNET’s own Jennifer Bisset offered high praise for season 3, dubbing it “a tighter, faster-paced… run of eight episodes that manages to tap every emotional vein of childhood (even for those who didn’t grow up in the ’80s).”How to watchGet yourself a Netflix subscription. Stranger Things is a jewel in the service’s crown of original series’, and it’s the best way to ensure you get all the new episodes plus access to the first three seasons.Not sure Netflix is worth it to you? The service offers a free one-month trial, so if you sign up close to the new season’s premiere, whenever that is, you can soak it up with previous years’ seasons and then cancel your membership without cost. But if you do this for season four and a fifth season is later added, you might have to sign up again later on and pay up (or find a Netflix-subscribing friend who’ll invite you over).Release date, production infoThis is the $64,000 question. That notice in Production Weekly that we mention above says filming could begin in October 2019, meaning the new series might be available in 2020. But that sounds a little optimistic. There were 15 months between seasons one and two, and about 20 months between seasons two and three. Season three came out on July 4, 2019, so unless the Duffers speed up their process, it might be late 2020, or even sometime in 2021, before we see a fourth season. The first season had eight episodes, the second nine, and the third eight again, so we assume a fourth season would have around eight episodes. They’ll presumably all be uploaded to Netflix at once, the better to suit your binge-watching needs.Filming for past seasons has taken place in and around the Atlanta, Georgia area. It would seem likely that will continue, but in May 2019, Netflix’s chief content officer gave a statement that threw that into question. Due to a new Georgia law that would prohibit abortions from being performed in the state after a fetal heartbeat is detected, the streaming service might reconsider working in the state. Gov. Brian Kemp signed the bill into law in May 2019, but it faces legal challenges before it would go into effect in 2020.Cast: Who’s who?Obviously, we don’t know who’s returning and who’s not, but this show is such a wonderful ensemble piece that we assume most of the cast of the first three seasons will be back. The one big casting question: Is Police Chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour) still alive, possibly in a Russian prison? Better list him as a “maybe.”Likely to returnMillie Bobby Brown as ElevenFinn Wolfhard as Mike WheelerNoah Schnapp as Will ByersCaleb McLaughlin as Lucas SinclairGaten Matarazzo as Dustin HendersonWinona Ryder as Joyce ByersNatalia Dyer as Nancy WheelerCharlie Heaton as Jonathan ByersMaya Hawke as RobinJoe Keery as Steve HarringtonSadie Sink as Max MayfieldPriah Ferguson as Erica SinclairCara Buono as Karen WheelerMight return? Might not?David Harbour as Jim HopperPlot news, rumors and theoriesEleven as the Big BadNow here’s a juicy rumor. Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown, has been one of the show’s main heroic characters since the beginning, escaping from the lab where she was experimented on to help the kids of Hawkins fight the evil around them. She’s even made bullies pee themselves. Such a heroine could never turn bad, right? A theory discussed on Reddit claims that El could have been infected by the Mind Flayer and could be used in the same way the creature manipulated creepy Billy in season three. Far-fetched? Maybe, but it would sure shake things up.Where’s Hop?Beloved characters have died before in Stranger Things. (Barb! Bob!) But there’s been no death — or, assumed death — as big as the possible loss of Police Chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour). He seems to die a martyr in the final episode of season three. But in a perplexing and much-discussed scene, viewers discover that there’s an American being held in a Russian prison where other, unluckier inmates are fed to a demogorgon. Seems apparent we’re meant to wonder if that’s Hopper, still alive, and if he’ll somehow make his way back to Joyce, Eleven and crew in a fourth season.The directors speakMatt and Ross Duffer spoke to Entertainment Weekly and dropped some very vague hints about a fourth season’s plot. Ross Duffer addressed the importance of the American in the Russian prison cell, saying that plotline is “obviously going to play a huge role in a potential season four.” (WELL, DUH!) His brother Matt hints at a more national or even global aspect to a fourth season. There may be other towns like Hawkins with creepy labs and access to alternate dimensions. “I think the biggest thing that’s going to happen is it’s going to open up a little bit,” he said. “Not necessarily in terms of scale, in terms of special effects, but open up in terms of allowing plotlines into areas outside of Hawkins.” And speaking of moving outside of Hawkins…Movin’ on upIn that final season-three episode, Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder), her sons and Eleven, who seems to have been taken in by Joyce after Hopper’s possible demise, are moving. She looks through her old battered house one last time and then the family drives away. Where are they off to? Admittedly, we wouldn’t want to stay in a cursed place like Hawkins either, but for the plot’s sake, it would seem she can’t go too far. Joyce, Will, Jonathan and Eleven all need to stay close to the other kids, and it would be so sad if the friend group was split between two different school systems.Eighties eventsThe first season took place in 1983, the second in 1984, and the third in the summer of 1985. So we’d seem to be on track for a 1986 season next, although admittedly, the kids are growing up faster than time is moving onscreen, so things could jump even two years ahead. 1986 has some big pop culture and news events that could play well into a show like this, including the Chernobyl disaster. Considering the Russians were heavily involved in season three, could Chernobyl itself be worked into the show’s mythology? In lighter news, maybe El and Mike could go see Pretty in Pink or Top Gun, and Dustin could teach the kids how to Walk Like An Egyptian.This article was first published on Aug. 12, 2019, and will be updated as news is revealed.

Heart attacks went up four percent even with just a few hours of elevated levels.“It affects, both, all ages, children pediatrics with asthma and affects the older population with cardiac arrest,” Raun tells News 88.7.Raun said while many of us might think smog is worse in the summer, she says their research found that people got sick from it more when the seasons change.“If you were to look at the statistics at the ambulance treated asthma attacks for example you will see spikes that occur in the fall and in the spring,” says Raun.And so far this month, each day has shown elevated ozone in many parts of the Houston region with the highest spikes that exceed new, federal standards occurring on Houston’s west side and into Fort Bend County.

Delhi this evening is for Faiz

first_imgFaiz Ahmed Faiz is one name that is taken in the same breath with the other Urdu masters. And now Delhiites will get a chance to relive his memories at this evening that is dedicated to the legendary poet. ‘Faiz phir teri yaad ayi’ is an ode to the legendary revolutionary poet from Pakistan who was a notable member of the Progressive Writers’ Movement (PWM), and an avid follower of Marxism. It will be a musical evening based on Faiz’s poems which have been researched and compiled by Vinod Verma, who runs a cultural society, Tamasha. Joining him will be Madan Bala Sindhu’s Sufi and classical music which will be based on Faiz’s poems. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’‘His pathbreaking poems reflected a tinge of romance and reality during the time of Independence, which triggered the nation to raise its voice against suppression,’ said Verma.The works of Faiz, who is also known as ‘Poet of the East’, will be recited and sung with a background score by Sindhu.‘It’s a celebration of his famous works like Darbar-e-Batan, Dua, Meri kismat se khelne wale, Shisho ka Maseeha koi nahi, Aye kuch abre kuch sharab aye, Raaz- e-ulfat chupa ke dekh liya, Shaam-e-Firaaq, Naqsh-e-Faryadi, Dast-e-Saba, Mere Dil Mere Musafir Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflixto name a few of his masterpieces,’ said Sindhu.Music will play a major role in the recital this evening and it will juxtapose with his romantic poems at first, and then later on his rebellious ones.‘The concept, along with the music, is based on Faiz’s life. He took a turn from romantic writings to realistic ones when he was sent to correctional homes in 1951 due to a political conspiracy in Pakistan,’ said Verma, who has done almost 100 workshops on Faiz’s works in India and abroad in the last 32 years. Says Sindhu: ‘Faiz is like a Comrade, his thoughts were soft but effective and inspired the classical and Sufi singers. His poetry never gets old because the problems and situations are so much related to us till now and they have not changed.’‘Today we sing his songs because of his beautiful poetry, he as a human being served as an inspiration which motivated us to speak up for ourselves, for the society,’ added Sindhu.DETAILAt: India Habitat Centre, Lodhi RoadWhen: 17 January Timings: 7 pm onwardslast_img read more
