WWF-Malaysia is proud to announce that Melaka city has been awarded as the National Champion of One Planet City Challenge this year. An initiative by WWF Sweden, OPCC is a biennial competition that aims to recognize and reward cities for developing infrastructure, housing, transport and mobility solutions to power the global transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient future.
That’s not the only good news from Melaka! Under the Eco-Schools Melaka Programme (ESP) headed by WWF-Malaysia and Green Growth Asia Foundation, two schools have been awarded with Green Flag this year. The prestigious award is internationally recognized and respected for schools with the best environmental education and management practices.
SMK Bukit Baru is the first Melaka Eco-Schools with students of #learningdisabilities (Special Education) who drove the school’s green initiatives to success. WWF-Malaysia urges all schools including special education schools to adopt the ESP because it combines learning with hands-on experiences, runs according to an all-inclusive, real-life problem solving method, which involves students of different background and capacity, teachers and the local community at large.

Passing through the birth canal provides the baby with important disease fighting tools. For instance the baby will receive bacteria from the mothers vagina that the baby need to build a healthy gut. Babies delivered by c- section are not provided with important allergy fighting bacteria (Bacteriodetes). C- section is also linked to obesity in both childhood and adulthood, Diabetes, asthma, gut disease and several cognitive development issues in many studies. We must encourage all woman to give birth naturally! USA has on of the highest c-section rates in the world. In Norway about 15 percent of all babies are delivered by c-section. In the US the number is twice as high, for no reason at all. Britain and Australia are other c-section nations.

C-sections, maternal obesity, baby formula and antibiotics are other risk factors. #naturalbirth#baby#csection#learntherisk#moneymoney#easyway#sayno#normalizebreastfeeding#vaccineinjury#autism#diabetes#obesity#learningdisabilities#adhd#allergy#asthma#healthy#healthybaby#healthyfood
Your “Awareness-Self” is witnessing you living your life - aware of you experiencing life, without being the parts that experience it. If that Awareness-Self were taken away from you – and you were not aware of the experiences that the rest of you were experiencing – would that be living? That part of you is Self-As-Awareness. It’s connected to all of you, and yet it is not attached to any part of you or to anything else. From that zoomed-out perspective, your “Awareness-Self” gives you what you need to discern the moment, AS IT IS – without any old wounds, fears about the future, or stories about the present situation. When that part of you says “I notice ____”, it frees you, lets you know you are separate from it, and free to move in whatever direction serves the whole of you well. You are free to play with creating out of the box any movement and solutions that make living amazing!⠀ ⠀

One of the hallmark characteristics of many gifted/2E children/people is extreme speed in their area of giftedness. The “I notice ____” sentence starter can help begin to slow down their zero-to-100 in a nanosecond reactions. Other gifted/2E who are visual may process slowly, in part because it takes their brain time to translate into or out of a picture. Saying, “I notice ____”, may give them the time they need to bridge to processing of their pictures, while simultaneously staying engaged with whomever they’re talking. In either situation, “I notice ____” increases the opportunity to find creative opportunities to play with whatever is at hand.⠀
