“Blue Lagoon” -stjärnan Christopher Atkins till svensk flickvän – vid den blå lagunen?


Hollywood star Christopher Atkins was married to Swedish girlfriend Sandra Ankarbjörk, 37, where his film classmate “The Blue Lagoon” filmed after Fiji’s owners offered to host his wedding.
“Christopher gave me a ring on the blue lagoon,” Sandra told Aftonbladet


The couple recently went on a romantic trip to the actual “Blue Lagoon”, Turtle Island in Fiji. They were invited by Paradise Island owners to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the film. It was the first time that Atkins returned after shooting firebreakers in 1979.
“It was very special and emotional,” said Sandra.
To show her love for her Swedish girlfriend, the 54-year-old Hollywood hunk gave her a ring.
She said, “We are not engaged, but he wanted to show me that it meant a lot to him that I was there with him.”

A wedding at the “Blue Lagoon” “not impossible”

They have been an object for almost two years and the couple does not rule out the prospect of a wedding in the “Blue Lagoon” island itself.
“Fiji wants to throw us a wedding at” Blue Lagoon. “I said” Not yet “, but it’s not impossible. She’s a wonderful woman and I’m very happy,” said the veteran actor Aftonbladet after landing at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport for a cozy vacation in Sandra’s hometown Skövde.

The amazing love story began when Sandra, a prolonged “Blue Lagoon” fan, contacted the actor on Facebook about two years ago.
“I get many Facebook messages and I usually write back. It continued and it was so nice and simple. I’ve never done anything like it before but we matched and now it’s been almost two years. She’s down to earth, funny, a great mom and person, “said Atkins.



Three Key Success Factors in a Business Area To Developed.

Still, critical success factors are common to most businesses that assist management in measuring whether they are on track toward reaching profit and market share goals.

When an entrepreneur starts a business, he should consider three key success factors. These factors are key indicators and milestones that you set to measure the success of your company,

When an entrepreneur starts a business, he should consider three key success factors. These factors are key indicators and milestones that you set to measure the success of your company, according to business expert Steve Ma Reyna, writing on the Power Home Biz website.

  • Retaining Customers = In any industry, a company is successful if it can retain its key customers. A proactive and aggressive company does not become complacent after getting the big contract; it works to keep it. Develop new ideas based on the needs of your larger clients to keep them interested in doing business with your company. If your company cannot retain its top clients from year to year, staying successful will become increasingly difficult.
  • Product Development = Whether you sell a tangible product or a service, if you do not keep up with the changes in your marketplace as dictated by your customers, you cannot survive. Being first to market and staying ahead of the competition is always ideal in trying to maintain your market share, but it is not always achievable. At minimum, you need to make sure you are keeping up with the demands of your industry and are consistently recognized as a company that stays on top of product changes.
  • Cash Management = In any industry, with any company, one of the main keys to success is managing your cash flow properly. Maintain open lines of communication to potential investors and lenders at all times. That way, when you need financing quickly, you have options. The ability to manage your business so you have cash on hand can also help you get financing. When lenders see that you are able to balance your books and maintain a profit, they are more likely to approve your financing. Cash on hand is also important for those times when you cannot get approved for financing but need operating capital right away. Learn to manage your cash to help your company survive and prosper.

To do personal learning Real – Thony Norelli

In April, the cruelest month the poets say, I nominate September as the most jumping.

In September, the official school starts: open doors, fresh supplies, new ideas. The jump is deeply intertwined with education. Measure anchor learning, giving direction for teachers and students. Inspirational teachers explain the paths or routes that can enable students to achieve these goals. We strive to create environments as fuels – for students and teachers alike. And the most caring educators show students how to use the obstacles they encounter to redirect their work – not just giving up.

These days, many educators burn their hopes with visions of personal learning – finding ways to help students formulate their goals, find ways, take action and maintain it, regardless of obstacles.

Despite that, there is a lot of debate about “personal learning” that begins with the core issue: Is that a thing? Can “personal learning” be the same in different schools? How does the teacher’s roles change? What are the risks? Does it threaten to share our students, stop “tracing” them and so prevention determines their destiny?

And the biggest question about everyone makes these ideas some new insights for how we prepare our children for the future?

These are some of the topics we hope to explore at the Edsurge Fusion Conference on Personalized Learning, hosted by Digital Promise, in November in South San Francisco.

Unique for Merger: We collect more than a dozen training organizations and their resources, hundreds of educators, researchers and industry leaders to learn from each other. Equity will be a critical peak – as well as how advanced technology will change our students’ future world. These points will be fundamental to the four strings of the event:
How to build Vision

The worst reason for change that the school leaders agree is that a pallet pallet with computers has just landed at the school’s top step and nobody knows what to do with them.

Careful school leaders are often motivated by the experiences they see that the students have at school. Such reasons contribute to “vision”, a model for teaching and learning that is personal and supports the students’ variety and agency. Before school leaders start a campaign to change their schools, they need a well-founded reason to take their journey and an idea of ​​where they would like to quit.

A number of organizations aim to help school leaders define where they want to lead their school communities. For example, for example, it offers a set of resources for school leaders who only enter the path of personal learning. Leap Innovations in Chicago has a four-point framework that is entirely focused on students. NewSchools Venture Fund provides support and funding for school leaders who do school recovery.

What does the research say?

Inform and feed that vision should be profound knowledge – ideal research results on how students learn, what forms their readiness to learn and how these principles can be applied in supportive learning tools. Digital Promise has devoted considerable resources to show the links between what we know and how it is implemented in school. The organization’s research map, for example, links subjects such as student motivation to published research frameworks and results.
Implement, implement, implement

However, winning the best plans is still challenging. From the student’s integrity and data management issues, the challenges of making software tools have worked well or inter operating a number of organizations-developed approaches and protocols to handle these issues, including the Ed-Fi Alliance, which aim to bring together data and IT systems in meaningful ways.
Show me the proof

To specify which programs are most effective – and why – is another cornerstone of real change. In the spring, Jefferson Education Accelerator gathered researchers to discuss the most promising directions to explain the impact of education technology and the corresponding teaching models.

Impact of social media on sales Thony Norelli


You read Entrepreneur Middle East, an international franchise of Entrepreneur Media.

Sales play an important role in the growth of all business. The sales process consists of different methods, and one of them gets to know your customers and establish strong relationships with them. Social media, as we all know, connect people and can help companies get more information about their customers. It enables business owners to find out how their business is perceived by their customers, including what their customers like their competitors so that they can make the necessary changes to their products or services, and to initiate calls to grow a prospect or sales management. Here are some ideas on how social media can be used to create new sales and generate increased returns.

1. Choose the right social media platform Social media consists of different platforms, and when choosing the right social media platform for their business, entrepreneurs should begin to learn their customer base preferences. Social media can only be used intelligently only if the activity is active on the same online platform as its customers. It’s a waste of time to engage on a social media platform if your customers spend the majority of their time on another. One of the best social media is Facebook, especially for B2C companies, as it allows publishing ads. It can also be used with other platforms, such as Pinterest and Instagram. You can engage with new customers, take orders from them and keep them informed about your new offers and initiatives.

2. Connect to your prospects Once you have chosen the right platform, you must connect by creating a profile or page to be made in the company name. Then you can connect your prospects by following them, send them a friend request and so on. The question that arises here is how do you identify the prospects? This is where SEO techniques can be useful. You can use keywords to search for people who are active in or talking about your industry. It is advisable not to approach them with sales outlets immediately, but first to find out their needs and concerns.

3. Build relationships and participate in conversations Suitable for both customers and businesses, social media enables them to build long-term relationships. Entrepreneurs should know that it takes time before they get the desired results. Building long-term relationships is only possible when you invest time to investigate, create and share engaging content. It’s not a good idea to just send your customers a message with a note and a link to your site. They will be uninterested – but try to point out some issues of theirs that your product or service can solve.

These are three simple steps that can help your social media recognize, while increasing the sales of your businesses. It is also important to mention that you should strive to treat your potential customers with respect while adding value to their lives with your products or services.



8 things to look for in a student-centered learning environment, Thony Norelli | Sweden


When you enter a school, what are you looking for? When you think about what kind of learning environment is ideal for your child or the students you work with, what are the most important characteristics? What are the most positive, memorable experiences from your own school?

I appreciate many different learning models and environments and do not honestly think it’s my role to judge or evaluate what’s “good”. As I said, from years of classroom teaching and countless visits and interactions with excellent teachers all over the world, I have created a list of things I usually observe in good student-centered learning environments. As the Nellie Mae Education Foundation describes, student-centered learning studies “students in their own success – integrating their interests and skills in the learning process.” Student learning is personal, competence-based, happening at any time and / or anywhere and students have ownership in their learning.

I parade my personal list of thoughts from my teammates on Getting Smart to create a collection of “School Look Fors” based on our discussions and experiences in schools.




Keep in mind that these Look Fors are not intended to evaluate a learning environment. Rather, they can serve as a springboard to create talks and discussion points. In addition, some of our favorite learning environments are places where teachers are still working to address some of these Look Fors. It is obvious yet important to say this: Every day is different in every school, and we are not familiar with the ongoing experiences and interactions of these teachings and learning in these spaces.

Among the fourteen School Look Fors above, there are eight in particular that really matter when it comes to student-centered learning environments.

1) High degree of student engagement; Challenge, enthusiasm, joy. One of the goals of creating a student-centered environment should be to make learning fun, challenging and engaging. Thrive Public Schools is one of the most happy places we have visited. Pleasing learning combined with goal-conscious challenge makes Thrive truly an incredible place. Laughter and engagement flow through each hall and classroom.



2) Students know what they learn and why. Katherine Smith students, including the fourth grade student (pictured in Quality Work + Project-Based Learning at Katherine Smith Elementary) who shared their written project goals with us, know what they need to do to perform a project or task. The project was tailored to her goals and she worked at her own pace to achieve them. Educator from Katherine Smith agrees that this does not happen overnight, but with good PBL help, kindergartners can also have this level of focus and clarity.

3) Mixing of individual collaborative teams and large group work. Intrinsic Schools in Chicago are literally designed, both in structure and teaching, to be a blend of individual and teamwork. Students work all in great learning and rotate between groups or one-on-one instructions with their teachers.


4) Students use personal technology to produce as well as consume. Student-centered learning requires students to spend at least part of their day working with personal learning tasks or projects. CICS Irving Park students in Chicago use the summit during a number of school days, and staff now see that discipline problems are lower and commitment is skyrocketing. CICS Irving Park collaborates with LEAP Innovations in personal learning, working together to ensure that learning is not only individualized but also meaningful and linked to reality.

5) Students have the opportunity to work at their own pace and explore their own interests. Exploring student interests (and interests that they do not even realize they have) is the essence of a good student-centered environment. Students also work to deal with skills, or skills, and do it at the same time. Da Vinci students ebb and flow in and out of group work and individual projects, which are usually designed based on student interests. Many Da Vinci students work to master skills and earn SNHU credits to do that. They may choose focus areas for their learning, which may include learning about societies and causing them to be most passionate. Students often work with a similar set of goals, but not all of the same activity or task.



6) Students do the most of the work and talk. The students’ ideas and voices are central and central in student-centered learning environments. Design39 students are convinced communicators and employees. Learning Experience Designers (also known as teachers) empowers students to start and control their learning, but allows a lot of student discussion and working time. During our visit last year, the students worked themselves or in groups at school. A group of third grade we chatted where to address this question: “How can we define ourselves in this world we live in?”

7) There are several forms of assessment, feedback and demonstrations of learning. Students in student-centered learning environments receive a lot of feedback. They receive individual feedback, hopefully on both academic and social and emotional goals. They also get group or group response, maybe based on projects or group activity. At Cougar New Tech in El Paso Independent School District, students keep their projects open in an in-school museum. When visitors come, they get their presentations and get feedback to improve their work.

8) Instruction, culture and the environment reflect and include student and personality diversity. From the Secretary-General to the Vice President, the Chavez Multicultural Academic Center staff really reflects the community and the students served. The halls and walls are covered with student articles, cultural displays and messages of empowerment about diversity as a force. The students see themselves in their learning space and their cultural strengths are emphasized throughout the learning day and in the physical school environment.




What else would you add? Above all, there is no better sign than being in a school environment where teachers, parents and students say they are happy about their school and are convinced of the quality of teaching and learning.
