Happy Birthday to Swami Vivekananda- The Man who has reached immortality!

     Swami Vivekananda:–

12 Jan 1863 — 4 July 1902

Swami Vivekananda was born on this day, January 12th, in 1863 in Kolkata. Here is a quote from the wiki entry on him.
Swami Vivekananda was born in an aristocratic Bengali family of Calcutta in 1863. Swami’s parents influenced his thinking—the father by his rational mind and the mother by her religious temperament. From his childhood, he showed inclination towards spirituality and God realization. While searching for a man who could directly demonstrate the reality of God, he came to Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa and became his disciple. As a guru, Ramakrishna taught him Advaita Vedanta (non-dualism) and that all religions are true, and service to man was the most effective worship of God. After the death of his Guru, Vivekananda became a wandering monk, touring the Indian subcontinent and getting first-hand knowledge of India’s condition. He later sailed to Chicago and represented India as a delegate in the 1893 Parliament of World Religions. An eloquent speaker, Vivekananda was invited to several forums in the United States and spoke at universities and clubs. He conducted hundreds of public and private lectures and classes, disseminating Vedanta and Yoga in America, England and a few other countries in Europe. He also established the Vedanta societies in America and England. Later he sailed back to India and in 1897 founded the Ramakrishna Math andRamakrishna Mission, a philanthropic and spiritual organization.

World Teachers’ Day 2012

World Teachers’ Day is on October 5

World Teachers’ Day

Teachers are one of our most valuable resources, yet we often treat them like a cheap commodity. “Take a Stand for Teachers” is this year’s theme for “World Teachers’ Day.” Irina Bokova, Director-General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) explains World Teachers’ Day: “On this day, we call for teachers to receive supportive environments, adequate quality training as well as ‘safeguards’ for teachers’ rights and responsibilities.”

Here are some national teachers retention statistics from the Business-Higher Education Forum:

* Thirty-three percent of all new teachers leave teaching during the first three years; 46 percent leave in the first five years.

* The rate of attrition is 50 percent higher in poor schools versus wealthy ones.

* The United States spends about $4.9 billion each year to replace teachers.

I wonder why they’re all leaving. On Oct. 5 you can help by making sure your child’s teachers know how important they are to you and your family. Ask them what they need to do their job better, and do what you can to help them get it.

World Physical Therapy Day

What’s Its About?

The human body is remarkably easy to damage and break, and no more so than when participating in strenuous physical activity such as sporting or athletic activity.

Physical therapists work to undo damage, educate on healthy behaviour and to restore lost or damaged functionality. Physical Therapy Day, then, is dedicated to these professionals throughout the world, and aims to recognise their commitment to keeping us all fighting-fit.

Physical therapists often work out of physical rehab centers – not to be confused with drug rehabs.

World Physical Therapy Day 2011 Theme

The theme this year is demonstrating the crucial role that PTs have in the treatment and prevention of Non-communicable diseases (NCDs). NCDs are diseases that are not contagious such as:

World Physical Therapy Day is on September 8th 2012.

It is a unique opportunity for physical therapists and physiotherapists from all over the world to raise awareness about the crucial contribution the profession makes to keeping people well, mobile and independent.  For examples of events that have taken place in previous years please see reports in WCPT News.

This year, more than ever, with the burden of non communicable diseases (NCDs) resulting in 36 million world wide deaths, and even more pain and suffering with disability, immobility and loss of independence it is crucial for more physical therapists, globally, to include the World Health Organisation’s advice on exercise and physical activity as part of routine clinical care.

Ann Gates, Founder of Exercise Works! said in a subsequent British Journal of Sports Medicine blog:

‘It is unacceptable in 21st century medicine for 36 million people to die from preventable and treatable diseases!’

Regular exercise advice and support is life changing medicine for patients! Let’s celebrate the unique skills of the physical therapist and their contribution to medicine and patients by ensuring that indeed:

‘Families, communities, nations and the world are: ‘Fit for life!’
