Honduras Defense University Offers Students a Quality Education

first_img“The advantage of these devices will be that a control tower will be able to record the information provided, and even if the buoys are destroyed, the evidence will remain secure in the tower’s virtual storage,” said Colonel Manuel Antonio Peraza Rivera, UDH’s vice rector for academics. This year, Honduras Defense University celebrates 10 years of providing members of the Honduran Armed Forces access to a top-notch Military university education for undergraduate and graduate students. This year, Honduras Defense University celebrates 10 years of providing members of the Honduran Armed Forces access to a top-notch Military university education for undergraduate and graduate students. For instance, one such project involves the development of an automated buoy that will allow users to establish control points with more rigorous technological support throughout Honduran waters. The prototype will include cameras and a radar system, and will offer the ability to verify whether a ship or underwater vessel is inside Honduran waters. In addition, the cameras will identify the type of ship that has entered Honduran waters, and will obtain real-time information about the vessel. Providing higher education to young Cadet candidates “The advantage of these devices will be that a control tower will be able to record the information provided, and even if the buoys are destroyed, the evidence will remain secure in the tower’s virtual storage,” said Colonel Manuel Antonio Peraza Rivera, UDH’s vice rector for academics. By Dialogo March 24, 2015 “Mechatronic engineering has arisen from the need for high technology that the military air, ground, and sea forces now have,” according to Rear Adm. Romero. “The requirements are greater and greater, and we need qualified people.” Students at each of these schools have the opportunity to study a wide array of courses related to the Armed Forces. The College of Military Sciences offers majors in Communications, War Materials, Intelligence, Artillery, and Engineering. Aeronautical Sciences offers majors in Military Piloting, Air Defense, and Logistics. And Naval Sciences offers Communications, General Studies, and Maritime Engineering. In addition, Cadet candidates from any of the academies may pursue a bachelor’s degree in Military Mechatronic Engineering or Military Nursing.

For instance, every five years, UDH graduates a group of Cadets in Mechatronic Engineering who will be responsible for developing various projects. In 2016, UDH is expected to graduate 22 mechatronics students from the three academies. The education offered by UDH is one of the reasons that a high percentage of the officers in the Honduran Armed Forces has a college degree. Currently, 99 percent of the officers in the Honduran Military have at least an undergraduate degree; of those, 60 percent also have a master’s degree, according to Rear Adm. Romero. In the near future, UDH plans to create a doctorate program in Defense and Security, which would be a requirement for service members’ promotion to general officers. In addition to providing post-graduate courses, UDH also allows young people who are joining the Military the opportunity to pursue a college education. Every October, the latter take UDH’s admissions exam for a place in its classes, and hundreds are admitted every year. For example, on January 11, the university admitted 412 young Cadets between the ages of 16 and 22; of these, 156 were accepted at the College of Military Sciences; 146 at the College of Naval Sciences; and 110 at the College of Aeronautical Sciences. Education helps the Military improve its technology “For parents, UDH (Universidad de Defensa de Honduras) offers their children the best levels of education, with zero failures in class,” according to Rear Adm. Romero Burgos. “Our youth receives quality education and the assurance that they are immersed in a process to be educated with a view to serving their country, and this service will be with great dignity, knowing that there is sacrifice, but there is much more honor in serving one’s country.” In addition to providing post-graduate courses, UDH also allows young people who are joining the Military the opportunity to pursue a college education.

What Parents Should Know about Marijuana

first_imgAmerican College of Pediatricians’ 25 February 2019Family First Comment:  If you are a parent who wants your teenager or child to grow up with a healthy, drug-free life, you are unfortunately in a kind of war zone. Why is it a war zone? Because  there are many adults and teenagers who would promote marijuana and other drug use to young people. To help teens avoid the pitfalls of drugs in their youth, parents must take some pretty bold stands. Here’s the info you need – from concerned doctors….If you are a parent who wants your teenager or child to grow up with a healthy, drug-free life, you are unfortunately in a kind of war zone. Why is it a war zone? Because  there are many adults and teenagers who would promote marijuana and other drug use to young people. To help teens avoid the pitfalls of drugs in their youth, parents must take some pretty bold stands. Marijuana is the most commonly used illegal drug for teenagers. (2) They are more likely to use marijuana than to use tobacco. (6) Marijuana’s effects lead to immediate and long-term problems of which many teens are unaware.How Many Teenagers are Using Marijuana?According to survey results in 2016, 38% of high school students report that they have used marijuana at some point in their life (1).Even more alarming, 68.9 % of high school seniors reported through survey that they do not think that regular marijuana smoking is harmful (2)!According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse for teens, “Recent public discussions about medical marijuana and the public debate over the drug’s legal status is leading to a reduced perception of harm among young people.” (2) The increased commonality of the drug may make it seem less threatening to teens. One-third of teenagers who smoke marijuana and that live in states with legalized medical marijuana use, obtain their marijuana from adults with prescriptions. Additionally, some teens think it can’t be very bad because it is “natural”, but many natural things like cocaine, heroin, and tobacco are far from safe. (2)Teenagers’ reported unawareness of the harm of marijuana has drastically increased since the 1980’s. The irony of this is that the harm and potency of marijuana has also increased since then. The concentration of THC (the chemical in marijuana that produces the most mind-alternating effects) is now about 3 times stronger than it was in the 1990’s! (2).Marijuana is Both Temporarily and Permanently Harmful to AdolescentsBecause adolescents’ brains are still developing, marijuana and other drug use can cause even more lasting damage to a teenage brain than to an adult user’s brain.Marijuana impairs adolescents working memory, problem solving, decision-making skills, and coordination. (2) When using marijuana, a person’s heart rate increases, causing the heart to work harder, causes difficulty in sensory perception, and creates breathing problems. (3) Marijuana decreases motivation, can lead to confusion and anxiety, even panic attacks, and often results in personality changes. (6)For adolescents, there is research showing that marijuana use alters the structure and chemical composition of the brain, and IQ, in a way that can be permanent.Adolescents who use marijuana are more likely to get lower grades, drop out of school, have physical and mental health problems, struggle with relationships, and have less future career success. (4)  They are at increased risk for suicide and to develop psychoses. (6)Signs of marijuana use include (6):silly behavior and frequent laughing associated with the “high” created by THC,red eyes or eye dryness,increased appetite,irritabilitylack of motivation, reduced interest in thingstrouble with memorysmell on clothes or use of deodorizersdizzinessUnexplained money or stolen money How Can We Make a Difference?Research shows that children who report that their parents have serious conversations with them about drugs are around 50% less likely to abuse drugs. (5) It is essential to start early in explaining to children the consequences of marijuana use. Be open with them and listen to them.Children whose parents use illegal drugs or who are addicted to cigarettes or alcohol are more likely to do the same. Taking steps to quit has great benefits for your child.Helping your child to be involved in an extracurricular activity or hobby is a great way to give them a place to make good friends, offer them motivation to take care of themselves, and increase their confidence.Teenagers who are depressed or dealing with trauma are more likely to abuse drugs. (4) Help them to find appropriate outlets or professional counseling to deal with the normal emotional strain of adolescence and any chronic conditions they may have.https://www.acpeds.org/what-parents-should-know-about-marijuanaKeep up with family issues in NZ.
