Tomorrow’s Drivers G2 Test Tips for Newmarket and Markham Drivers

Tomorrow's Drivers in Newmarket helps G1 & G2 drivers overcome on-road anxieties & develop the confidence they need to drive any time, anywhere, at any place.

Cars can be replaced. People can’t. Those words might seem harsh, but when you’re talking about learning to drive, it’s a matter of life and death. And we take nothing lightly.”

— Shayraz A. Khan, CEO Tomorrow's Drivers

NEWMARKET, ON, CANADA, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — For over 10 years, Tomorrow's Drivers, a driving school in Newmarket and Markham, has been teaching students the knowledge of how to make good, confident driving decisions — no matter where they are, and no matter the time of their life. One inhibitor of road safety is anxiety, phobias, traumas or lack of confidence in on-road performance. These fears can contribute to unsafe driving behavior, which endangers the driver and others on the road.

In addition to core training, Tomorrow's Drivers instructors specialize in treating and curing anxieties and phobias about driving. This is a component of all their programs — ranging from their Ontario Ministry of Transportation-approved BDE training for beginner drivers with a G1 license (and even students who haven't yet applied for a G1), to refresher lessons to help drivers easily warm up for their G2 & G road tests.

Instructors analyze how emotions affect the driving student and focus on correcting deep-seated emotional and intellectual bad habits. The goal is to replace bad habits with positive habits in order to develop the emotional confidence of students and make them better drivers.

The symptoms of a phobia can range from mild feelings of apprehension and anxiety to a full-blown panic attack. Physical symptoms can include difficulty breathing, racing or pounding heart, chest pain or tightness, trembling or shaking, feeling dizzy or light-headed, a churning stomach, hot or cold flashes, tingling sensations, or sweating. Sufferers may also experience a range of emotional symptoms such as feeling overwhelming anxiety or panic or feeling an intense need to escape a situation.

People are not born with fears and phobias; instead, these reactions are imprinted in the mind as a learned response from previous negative or traumatic experiences. A driving anxiety could stem from having been in a road accident, witnessing an accident, or being involved in a road rage incident.

​The experienced, MTO-licensed instructors at Tomorrow's Drivers work with the part of the mind that harbours fears and phobias. Phobia therapy has proven to be extremely effective, and people tend to see results very quickly. By helping drivers replace a negative behavior pattern with a positive pattern, instructors empower students to be more relaxed and maintain focus and control while driving.

Whether the student has a G1 license, G2 license, or a full license, Tomorrow's Drivers focuses on only one ultimate goal: confidence on the road. It is not sufficient to train only for the road tests, which are easy to pass. The key focus at Tomorrow's Drivers is to fully immerse students in learning the life-saving skills necessary to drive in any situation they may encounter. With these skills mastered, students can be safe and confident drivers.

Driving is one of the most important life skills any person needs to go places; if they fail to have the know-how and confidence to drive after passing their G, not only can it be difficult for them to get where they want — it can put their life even more on the line. That's why it's vital to get the proper driver education, and that's just what Tomorrow's Drivers provides.

The hurdle of healthcare accessibility is overcome with remote monitoring and telehealth, and catapulted further with the introduction of 5G.”

— Dr. Sana Farid – Pioneer X-Reality & Ai Strategist

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, December 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The definition of healthcare has long been restricted to providing for people after their sickness has been diagnosed. Of late, however, the focus has slowly been shifting towards prevention.

“It’s time to move from reactive sick-care to proactive healthcare by default.” Koen Kas, Healthcare Futurist.

This change in attitude has largely been fostered by technological advancements. Thanks to technology, healthcare experts now have access to previously unavailable data. This makes it possible to monitor patients remotely, fill patient charts faster and optimize diagnosis and treatment time-frames.

The HealthTech industry has grown very rapidly since 2015, and the number of venture-back HealthTech financings has grown by 25%.

HEALTHTECH IN 2020: WHAT’S AWAITING YOU

Technology can do exciting things for healthcare especially through Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR).
In the coming year, here are the top five trends in HealthTech to look forward to!

1. THE EVOLUTION OF IMMERSIVE LEARNING

Extended reality is no longer restricted to making video games and CGI for movies. Over the last twenty years, it has evolved vastly and helped develop learning and workplace training.
“Education has found a new dimension with AR/VR technology in the 21st century.”
In the healthcare industry, immersive tools help naïve as well as experienced healthcare practitioners improve their skills without any risk. Learning anatomy is simplified and doctors can perfect difficult procedures in a safe space.
“In 2020, the revenue for VR/AR for education is geared to increase to $300 million, rising to $700 million over the next five years,” suggest reports from Goldman Sachs.

2. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE THAT ENABLES EFFECTIVE DIAGNOSIS, PROCESS, AND SECURITY

Often, there is a big lag in disease diagnosis. Artificial intelligence has reduced this manifold through deep learning and image detection. This will allow doctors to spend time treating patients rather than handle automatable tasks.

”Over the last decade, AI has become more accurate in its diagnosis, being nearly as perfect as healthcare professionals.”

The healthcare industry deals with big data regularly. Processing this manually is difficult and time-consuming. When AI is used, large chunks of data are analyzed rapidly, speeding up processes.
AI can also help win over patients’ trust by improving data security. Many patients are reluctant to give information because they don’t know who can access it. AI can be used to increase data protection through firewalls, authentication, encryption and the prediction of unusual behavior.

3. TELEHEALTH: CONNECTING CARE PROVIDERS ANYTIME AND ANYWHERE

One of the challenges of healthcare is geographical accessibility. Urban residents can access healthcare easily, but people in rural and remote locations cannot.

“The hurdle of healthcare accessibility is overcome with remote monitoring and telehealth, and catapulted further with the introduction of 5G.”

Telehealth and home monitoring make it possible for healthcare practitioners to provide their services without having to meet the patient in person. Although not a holistic response, it can allow doctors to make recommendations and even submit prescription requests.

Augmenting this with AR and VR can bring the doctor’s room to patients’ homes. Thus, they can experience the comfort associated with being in the same physical space as their doctor without leaving their home.

The technological barriers here have been slow network speeds and demanding imaging tools. These congest the network and create a lag in communication that can potentially hurt outcomes.

“5G will hasten image transfer, reduce lag in video appointments, increase the reliability of real-time monitoring and provide rapid access to AI tools.”

With this, as 5G rolls out worldwide, it will make healthcare practitioners more accessible. Patients can look forward to faster diagnosis and treatment, while doctors can optimize their time and prepare for the patient even before arrival.

4. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF VIRTUAL REALITY IN HEALTHCARE

Virtual reality has applications beyond education in healthcare. The imaging capacities of VR have been used innovatively in medical science.
Some patients cannot be sedated or anesthetized because of their age or health condition. For such patients, more and more hospitals are employing VR headsets. The headsets are fitted with immersive reality, which distracts patients from the pain.

“VR reduces anxiety for patients undergoing complex procedures, and makes the experience less frightening.”

In the coming year, we will see VR expanding to help patients deal with different physical and psychological pain.
Burn patients are very likely to benefit from VR, as their pain cannot be mitigated easily medically. Using immersive reality games such as SnowWorld can help distract them, leading to a 50% reduction in their perception of pain.

Patients of PTSD and phobias often find it difficult to cope with situations in daily life. VR helps with exposure therapy to these triggering stimuli, which hastens the recovery process. Slow exposure has also been found to minimize phobia.

5. GENOMIC ADVANCEMENTS THAT HELP COMPREHEND GENETIC INTRICACIES SWIFTLY & ACCURATELY

Studying genes and their components can be very tricky, as they are difficult to visualize. Not being able to interact with complex data visually slows pattern recognition in the brain.

Genomics is particularly important because it helps detect genetic disorders early. Diseases like thalassemia are linked to genetics, and early detection helps improve the quality of life for patients.

Dr. Maryam Matar from the UAE Genetics Association asserts the role of technology here, saying, “Genetic testing and newer technologies provide an opportunity to understand our genes better and allow us to take action to help subside those genes by following a healthy lifestyle, sleep and exercise pattern.”
VR and AR are helping researchers view these complex structures in a 3D format. With even simple tools such as headsets, they can interact with their data in a new form.

“With VR, you can walk through the genes, examining them part-by-part and detecting interactions.”

AR takes this a step further by projecting these images, allowing multiple people to access this information at once.

THE GLOBAL IMPORTANCE OF HEALTHTECH

On a global level, these emerging trends have prompted large organizations to focus on technology. Several healthtech events are being organized worldwide, to bring together experts and encourage innovation. The largest health conference in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region, Arab Health, is making the tech revolution the focus for its 2020 event.

With its immersive solutions partner, Munfarid, the conference will bring Futuristic Healthcare experiences in Training, Diagnostic, Therapeutic, and Wellness programs to its attendees. Through initiatives such as #VRforGood and #VRforImpact, these organizations aspire to help the elderly with chronic illnesses and are spreading happiness through improved quality of life for people all around the world.

IN A NUTSHELL

Technology has been the driving force behind innovation in healthcare and will continue to be so over the coming years. It has made procedures safer, more reliable and optimal.
Through recent advances in AR and VR, patients and practitioners can look forward to a brighter, healthier, and happier 2020!

2020 Should Launch Zero Tolerance on Psychotropic Drugging of Foster Youth

foster child drugging

2020 should be the year to launch a government zero tolerance policy to using mind-altering drugs on children, especially those in foster care.

After inadequate government assurances to track and curb psychiatric drugging of foster youth, CCHR says its time for a zero tolerance policy on their use

2020 should be the year to launch a government zero tolerance policy to using mind-altering drugs on children, especially those in foster care.”

— Jan Eastgate, President CCHR International

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, December 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — This year highlighted the ongoing psychotropic drugging of foster care children and adolescents despite a decade of exposure of the risks of these drugs, according to Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) International. The group says 2020 should be the year to launch a government zero tolerance policy to using mind-altering drugs on children, especially those in foster care. Immigrant children being held in psychiatric institutions, including those owned by for-profit companies, deserve the same protections, CCHR says.

In 2019, CCHR International filed Freedom of Information requests to each state to obtain facts about foster care and Medicaid-covered child psychiatric drugging. For example, in New Hampshire, between 2013 and 2017 there was an average of 14,000 children aged 0 to 17 prescribed psychiatric drugs. The most prescribed drugs were psychostimulants followed by antidepressants—the latter carrying a Black Box warning of potentially causing suicide. Addictive antianxiety drugs rated third highest prescribed psychotropics.

A federal Inspector General report found New Hampshire had one of the highest rates of foster children receiving drugs for emotional issues. In response, Representative William Marsh, a doctor, recently introduced a bill that would direct the state health department to develop a more rigorous oversight program.[1]

The bill recognizes that psychotropic drugs “can have serious side effects, such as drowsiness, weight gain, nausea, headaches, involuntary movements, and tremors, among others. Furthermore, certain medications carry black box warnings from the Food and Drug Administration, including antidepressant medication and suicidality in the pediatric population, and stimulant medication and sudden death in the pediatric population.”[2]

A similar oversight law was enacted in California in 2015 where nearly 25% of adolescents in the state’s foster care system were prescribed mind-altering drugs.[3] California’s foster care system “has grown more addicted to mind-altering medication,” the chair of a powerful Senate committee told a packed public hearing in the state Capitol in 2015.[4] Since then, the number of foster care kids prescribed antipsychotics decreased by 45% and prescriptions of multiple psychotropic drugs by over 73%.[5]

However, CCHR says this does not go far enough because psychiatrists are still dictating that the unique circumstances foster care children face when displaced from their family, require a drug to control emotional and behavioral responses to these circumstances. The drugs’ side effects only exacerbate the situation, the group says.

In 2018, U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, co-founder and co-chair of the Senate Caucus on Foster Youth, along with Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, led a bipartisan group of senators that wrote to Assistant Secretary for Family Support Lynn Johnson, urging her to implement recommendations from a recent Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) report that would help foster children being drugged. Iowa was one of five states studied by the OIG. More than 35% of its foster youth are on psychotropic drugs.[6]

For several decades, CCHR has been exposing the risks of psychotropic drugs given to children and recently launched a FightforKids website as a resource for parents, including foster parents, about the dangers of psychotropic drugs and other treatments prescribed children, including electroshock.

In 2004, CCHR Texas provided information to the then State Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn who released “Forgotten Children,” a report that found too many foster children on many psychiatric drugs. The Legislature in 2005 passed Senate Bill 6, which required a study of the use of these drugs in foster care, strengthened medical consent requirements, and the state’s ability to track prescriptions.[7] CCHR found that children as young as three were on antipsychotics.

At that time, an Austin American-Statesman investigation found that between August 2004 and September 2005, at least 19% of foster kids in state psychiatric hospitals also stayed longer than necessary. Yet 14 years later, it found hundreds of Texas foster children are still languishing for weeks or months in psychiatric hospitals. Nearly 600 foster kids in fiscal 2017 spent a total of almost 14,000 days in psychiatric hospitals after doctors said they were ready to leave, according to a report by Disability Rights Texas.[8]

This year, Oregon's foster care system was accused of failing to shield children from abuse when it was found they were sent to out-of-state facilities where they were drugged and suffered other abuses, including sexual and physical assault. The number of children sent to privately run psychiatric facilities had more than doubled since 2017. A report filed with the State legislature identified problematic companies that owned these facilities included Acadia Healthcare (10 clients),” “Universal Health Services (2 clients),” and “Sequel Youth and Family Services (74 clients).[9]

Since 2015, CCHR International has filed tens of thousands of alerts to state legislators about the risks found in these facilities, including the finding that immigrant children were also warehoused in Acadia facilities. An unnamed Acadia source, with over 30 years’ experience in the finance and operations of health care facilities, stated, “They’re warehousing children, because they get $650 per day from the state.”[10]

CCHR encourages foster parents and whistleblowers to use its online abuse case form to report any abuses.

CCHR is the mental health watchdog responsible for more than 180 laws that now protect patients from damaging practices. Donate to support its work here.

Immersive technologies are revolutionizing the healthcare industry by infusing innovation in the diagnostic as well as therapeutic procedures.”

— Dr. Sana Farid – Pioneer X-Reality & Ai Strategist

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, December 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — "Quality of Life Restored with Immersive Technology that can minimize burn pain and treat the phantom limb post-amputation."

In its very basic form, healthcare can be defined as a sick-care system where sick people or who are acutely ill come to get treated by medically trained professionals. Despite tremendous technological progress and medical innovations healthcare sector hasn’t seen many changes lately. Nevertheless, in the current scenario, immersive technologies are revolutionizing the healthcare industry by infusing innovation in the diagnostic as well as therapeutic procedures. Some of the most useful inventions of immersive technologies in healthcare are:
1. 3D Visualization of human organs on a 100% scale powered by XR has improved the quality of medical care.
2. Surgical training using VR is helping medical students understand the concepts of surgical techniques in a better way in a risk-free environment.
3. Use of VR for early detection and prevention of mental health conditions such as psychosis.
This trend of technological inventions will transform the sick-care system into a lifestyle modification system by implementing predictive and preventive techniques so that diseases and ailments can be prevented before they turn into a chronic illness.

3 P’S OF IMMERSIVE HEALTHCARE: PERCEIVE, PREDICT, AND PREVENT ILLNESS WITH IMMERSIVE TOOLS

"Predictions show that the XR healthcare market will touch $5.1 billion worldwide by 2025"

Immersive Technologies have broadened the horizon of the healthcare industry, transforming its treatment-centric approach into a prevention-centric approach.
For example, we can consider “Life,” a VR based example that empowers learners to train in realistic emergency scenarios to address one serious problem – High Neonatal Mortality Rate. In this regard, Naomi Muinga, a Ph.D. student at the KWTRP, expresses: “The nurses who tried out the system really appreciated how realistic the experience was. They could enter a 3D virtual hospital and practice resuscitating a newborn baby who was not breathing and carry out the steps needed to save her life.”

HEAL YOUR STRESS WITH BRAINWAVE POWERED IMMERSIVE SOLUTIONS

"Virtual and Augmented Reality-powered Healium stories heal user’s feelings and imbibe positivity and calmness in them"

In today’s competitive world stress has become very common which leads to health-related issues such as headaches, chest pain, cardiovascular diseases, depression and several other mental and physical illnesses. To relieve these increasing stress levels, StoryUP Studios developed the world’s first virtual and augmented reality platform, HealiumXR, powered by brainwaves and heart-rate. It is a biometrically controlled device providing a drugless solution for stress management. Healium stories drive humans to an immersive world where their feelings of positivity and calmness are evoked and they feel stress-free as they see themselves healing the virtual world with their positive attitude. Mary Jane Schaftel, a cancer survivor quotes, “Using Healium during my unique journey with breast cancer helped me embrace the positive things in my life; and it reinforced all the quiet joys and personal healing going on inside me.” In a broad sense, it can be said that immersive technologies have the pain-relieving power that could help people heal and live a healthy life.

IMMERSIVE HEALTHCARE ENVIRONMENT: GIVING THE ABILITY TO LIVE BEYOND PHYSICAL ABILITIES

"VR to be effective in building balance skills in patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease."

Traditional Healthcare systems focus on curing ailments; however, the immersive healthcare environment is keen on lifestyle modification. In the same light, the Co-founder & CEO of Munfarid and the ARVR & Ai Strategist, Dr. Sana Farid quotes, “There is a lot to be said about the way Virtual Reality has revolutionized the Special Needs Education by providing a customized approach and a unique set of learning and growth opportunities for students with disabilities, which was not possible before.” The quote clearly expresses that immersive technology has given new abilities to disabled students. Although immersive technology cannot treat disabilities completely; however, it can definitely heal the pain and suffering that people are undergoing. With this healing process, people will feel more happy and motivated, which will eventually enhance their quality of life. These examples of successful immersive technologies make people more hopeful about the future of immersive innovations that could empower human health.

COMMUNITY OF LIKE-MINDED INNOVATORS WORKING PASSIONATELY TOWARDS ACHIEVING A HEALTH-ORIENTED IMMERSIVE ENVIRONMENT

Immersive technologies in healthcare are the need of the hour. To heal the pains and to promote predictive and preventive healthcare systems, innovations in the domain of immersive learning are vital. To drive such innovations, communities like the VRAR Association is working incessantly. In the context of the VRARA contribution towards immersive innovations, Dr. Sana Farid quotes: “The VRARA brings the global Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality communities closer together enabling a robust and fruitful interaction between like-minded entrepreneurs and technology enthusiasts and a chance to learn and acquire knowledge from each other.” These global initiatives taken in the field of technology are paving the way for predictive and preventive healthcare solutions.

The future of healthcare is technology-oriented. In the years to come people will rely more on VR-based illness preventive solutions than on illness-cure medications. This transformation is driven by immersive technologies that are bound to change the way people perceive the healthcare system. With wearable technologies and VR/AR-based solutions, people will predict and then prevent illness instead of curing one after facing severe consequences.

XR is catalyzing healthcare through interactive, responsive, and hyper-realistic scenarios that help master delicate procedures and minimize mistakes

Extended reality is catalyzing healthcare through interactive, responsive, and hyper-realistic scenarios that help master delicate procedures and minimize mistakes.”

— Dr. Sana Farid – Pioneer X-Reality & Ai Strategist

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, December 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Health care is not a commodity or privilege, but a human right.” – Julio Frenk, Dean, Harvard School of Public Health.

In a world with rising population problems, health care is crucial. Health care practitioners are tasked not only with the duty to save people’s lives, but also to improve the quality of life.

HEALTHCARE AND THE FOURTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

At a time when human existence is deeply linked to technology, it is unsurprising that technology provides hope in health care too. The recent developments in technology such as the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (Ai) ushered in the fourth industrial revolution in the 21st century.

“Extended reality is catalyzing healthcare through interactive, responsive, and hyper-realistic scenarios that help master delicate procedures and minimize mistakes.” – Dr. Sana Farid, Pioneer XR & Ai Strategist

CROSSING HEALTHCARE CHALLENGES WITH XR

Extended reality (XR) is an umbrella term used for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). It debuted mainly in entertainment systems and gaming but has rapidly gained importance in healthcare.

PATIENTS AND XR

Providing new treatment options is easier with VR, which enables people who are temporarily disabled to regain control in a virtual setting. Stroke patients, for example, can practice daily activities in simulated environments under doctors’ supervision.
After complicated procedures, patients are likely to be vulnerable to anxiety and require pain medication. When they are provided XR immersive experiences, they adapt to this temporary condition faster. It also makes the period leading up to the procedure more comfortable for the patient. When simulations are available, fears can be mitigated more efficiently by simplifying complex ideas.

“With XR, patients and doctors have real-time updates on their health conditions, improving communication and therefore, treatment.”

DOCTORS AND XR

With improved XR, aspiring doctors can practice new techniques without risking patients’ lives. A risk-free environment with real-time feedback helps doctors become more precise. A freshly minted doctor with no hands-on experience will still be able to perform with great skill and accuracy through virtual practice.
Even established surgeons can become better using XR. When planning and training for complicated surgeries, XR helps visualize the procedure. Being able to interact with models increases accuracy and the chances of favorable outcomes when the process is carried out.

“XR revolutionizes how doctors are trained, allowing them to practice in a risk-free simulation and helping them minimize errors.”

IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE AT THE ARAB HEALTHCARE CONFERENCE

The Arab Health conference is the biggest in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region. It is among the five biggest healthcare conferences in the world. It attracts about 55,000 attendees from 159 countries, which makes it a leading platform to engage, network and discovers the latest trends in healthcare.
For the upcoming event of 2020, the conference has the central theme of the fourth industrial revolution. Recognizing how vital VR and Ai will be in providing healthcare, Arab Health is providing a platform for discussion.

“The Extended Reality (Cross-Reality) market was valued at USD 27.0 billion in 2018 and is projected to increase rapidly to USD 393 billion by 2025, report MRFR analyses.”

Immersive experiences bring hopes to patients and have been popularized under the labels of #VRforGood and #VRforImpact.

Christmas Truce

Someone had a ball

Soldiers shared a few minutes of peace

They dreamed of going home

Suddenly, they realized that the Germans were singing the same carols in their own language.”

— Colleen Fliedner

SAN MATEO, CA, USA, December 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nearly five months after the first battle that kicked off World War 1, the battle-weary British soldiers hunkered down in their trenches for another cold, wet night of misery. They dreamed of going home, of being with their loved ones as they celebrated the holiest day of the year for Christians. Some of the men huddled together and began to sing Christmas carols. Others joined in, and soon, their voices broke the night silence up and down the zigzagged ditches. Suddenly, they realized that the Germans were singing the same carols in their own language.
There were even musical instruments accompanying the enemy troops’ voices.

At dawn a truly unbelievable thing happened. One by one, the Germans climbed out of their trenches on the east side of “No Man’s Land,” their hands raised to show they weren’t carrying weapons. They hollered, “Merry Christmas,” in English. At first the British soldiers were apprehensive, thinking it might be a trick. Soon, however, it was apparent the German men wanted a Christmas truce. British soldiers, still leery, slowly emerged from their trenches. Like the Germans, they raised their arms to show they had left their guns behind.

It was truly a Christmas miracle. Troop photographers took pictures of the incredible event. Soldiers who had shot at each other less than 24 hours earlier now shared cigarettes and plum puddings, shook hands and, most impressive of all, played soccer games. Dismayed by this show of friendship by the troops, the officers on both sides weren’t about to let this become a new tradition. It simply could not continue.

The next day, the soldiers – both British and German – were ordered to resume shooting at the same men they had met in a friendly gesture only hours earlier. The “Great War” continued through four more Christmases, but there would never be another Christmas truce.

The campaign was unveiled by His Excellency Ambassador Collen V.Kelapile, the Chair of the ambassadorial Advisory Board of The Master Plan, at the Permanent Mission of Botswana to the UN. This event was in presence of a diplomatic crowd comprising of His Excellency Ambassador Rodrigo A.

The Triton Solar is the initial sponsor of this global campaign. Triton Solar who is a staunch supporter of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal-13 also takes a role in supporting this grieving concern. The CEO of Triton Mr.Himanshu Patel who was a guest at the event, met with Ambassador Kelapile- Chair of the Advisory Board of the Master Plan and Mr.Christo Thomas, Chair of the Core Committee of the Master Plan, and extended his enduring support to this campaign. In his meeting, Mr.Himanshu also highlighted that "as a father, I am concerned about my kids and every other kids future and this campaign is a need of the time". Mr.Mohammed Alam- the national Vice President of the Young Democrats of America was a guest note speaker.

The President of the Young Democrats of America Mr.Joshua Harris-Till and Mr.Rick Loughery- the Chair of the Young Republican National Federation are Core Committee members of this global consortium which now has 109 national student unions, and 14 youngest Parliamentarians(expecting to have 50 more young Parliamentarians by the official launch of the Master Plan). His Highness Sheikh Khalid Bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Kingdom of Bahrain, is the Brand Ambassador of the Master Plan.

The Master Plan envisions to be the world's largest youth leaders consortium instituted with two main fundamental objectives: 1.to implement the United Nations 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), 2. To promote and enhance the United Nations resolution (A/RES/73/25) adopted on Dec 3rd, 2018 on the International Day of Education (IDE). It has been designed by Collegiate Congress, in association with All-African Students Union (AASU), European Students Union (ESU), Organización Continental Latinoamericana y Caribeña de Estudiantes (OCLAE), Young Republicans National Federation (YRNF), and Young Democrats of America (YDA).

I AM WITH YOU campaign is built on the WHO report which mentions, in 2016 over 62,000 people between 10-19 years of age committed suicide. In his unveiling address, Ambassador Kelapile mentioned, " consistent with the spirit of UN-SDGs it is our collective responsibility towards one another to ensure that no one is left behind. As such, the #Iamwithyou campaign fits squarely within the fundamental objectives of the Master Plan’s efforts to promote SDG3". The Advisory Board of the Master Plan comprises of Ambassador Keisha A. McGuire, Permanent Representative Mission of Grenada to the UN(Vice-Chair), Ambassador Mona Juul, Permanent Representative, Mission of Norway to the UN(Vice-Chair), Ambassador Jagdish Koonjul Permanent Representative, Mission of Mauritius to the UN, Ambassador Adela Raz- Permanent Representative, Mission of Afghanistan to the UN, Ambassador Modest J. Mero – Permanent Representative, Mission of Tanzania to the UN, Ambassador Omar Hilale – Permanent Representative, Mission of Morocco to the UN, Ambassador Rodrigo A. Carazo Zeledón- Permanent Representative, Mission of Costa Rica to the UN.

#IAmWithYou campaign believes that the best remedy to overcome the grieving issue of suicides and depression is to express one's support and friendship to each other and share their concerns. The highlight of this campaign and the Master Plan initiative is the student and youth leaders from around the world irrespective of their ideology, and other rationals, came together to support this campaign. They believe that the UN is the best platform to undertake this issue and then take it to countries. This campaign will also focus on how to tackle the youth obsession on social media which they found as one of the worst causes. However, the campaign also uses the social media platform, but to market, advertises, and requesting the youth to be more social than in social media.

Triton Solar has expressed interest to sponsor the official campaign launch of the #IAmWithYou campaign planned for the end of January at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The Master Plan was designed by Collegiate Congress Inc. leading student advocacy organization in New York. Chair of Collegiate Congress Inc. and of the Master Plan Core Committee Mr.Christo Thomas mentioned that he and his team have met with the World Health Organization delegation in Ne York to support this campaign and is expecting a positive response from them. Early January his team will be meeting with UNICEF for the same.

ASA Insurance Shared How High-Risk Drivers Can Get Car Insurance in Salt Lake City

Car Insurance Quotes in The Salt Lake City Area

ASA Insurance provides competitive car insurance rates in the Salt Lake City area.

The insurance provider offers critical information for Utah drivers

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, UNITED STATES, December 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — ASA Insurance is one of the leading providers of car insurance in Salt Lake City, and they have recently shared essential information for high-risk drivers in the area.

ASA Insurance shares that there are several things that can result in a driver ultimately being classified as high-risk.

This includes:

Multiple tickets
Driving a high-risk vehicle
Multiple at-fault collisions
A poor driving record, including DUIs

However, most insurance companies have their own criteria for exactly what makes a driver high-risk. For example, the threshold for some companies to deem a driver high-risk might be 3 speeding tickets within 2 years, while for other companies that threshold could be 3 tickets in 5 years.

For those with car insurance in Salt Lake City, most drivers know to expect an increase in their auto insurance premiums after they're in an at-fault accident, commit a traffic offense, or other driving related incidents. But what many drivers don't know is that their auto insurance policy could be cancelled entirely.

ASA Insurance also shares important information to help avoid being classified as a high-risk driver.

Avoid getting tickets by practicing safe driving
Keep proper documentation in your vehicle at all times
Utilize your cruise control to minimize your risk of speeding
To prevent distracted driving tickets or accidents, use hands-free, voice-activated technology to use your phone

Not only can this advice help prevent a high-risk driver classification, they can also keep Utah drivers and pedestrians safer on the roads.
