Work 2 – Research and Education Saskatoon Saskatchewan Canada Education and Research Overview Why Education? Education used to be teaching the “3 R’s”, Reading, Writing and ‘Rithmatic (Math). No longer. Today it is Computers, Calculus, Particle Physics, Molecular Biology, Nano (Really, Really, Really, Really Small Stuff) Technology and all sorts of other complicated subjects. That is the world we increasingly live in and the one our future generations will certainly have to master to succeed in life. There was once a time when centuries would go by before a promising new scientific development or invention was recognized and brought into use. Now it can be only a matter or months, weeks, days or minutes. And our students have to be not only smart and well educated but nimble. Educating and preparing future generations for an ever changing world through primary, secondary, University or Trade education is a very important and increasingly daunting task. But it is a task that Saskatoon residents, primary and secondary school (public, private and parochial) administrators/teachers/staff and University administrators/faculty/staff have recognized and are responding to in order to educate the best prepared students possible. This is a constant theme that one finds running through all levels of education in Saskatoon - from Pre School to Post Graduate University Education. In other words a child can receive an excellent education in Saskatoon at a number of levels and in a number of ways. Why Research? A few thousand years ago most people believed that our Planet Earth was flat and was the center of the Universe, whatever the heck that was. As time passed, researchers, scientists and others showed that these were misconceptions and helped to shed light on a greater and more accurate truth. In other words, research has played an important role in life from the earliest of times and has become an integral part of the process of educating and training future generations. In Canada, not only has much of the responsibility for teaching at advanced levels been placed on the shoulders of its universities but also to serve as centers of research. And the concept makes sense. Research leads to the generation of new knowledge and what better a place to pass on this new knowledge than in an educational institution? The Combination of Education and Research. What happens when these two activities combine? Think of one as the generation of knowledge and the other as a way to disseminate that knowledge to the masses. The result? Uses for fire, the wheel all the way to modern medicine, nanotechnology and computers you can now wear on your wrist that 60 years ago were the size of a house and had only a fraction of the calculating power, huge over simplification that is. Here’s the point. Generation of KNOWLEDGE is GOOD. Research, some of which will generate KNOWLEDGE is GOOD. Teaching, a means to disseminate KNOWLEDGE is GOOD. Research that feeds into teaching is GOOD. Get It? GOOD.

Easy going guy, looking for an interesting job. I went to school at Herzing College in Madison Wi for graphic design. I know Photoshop, illustrator and indesign programs, as well as the windows software. I at one time was going to start up a t-shirt company with a friend but it never got off the ground. We already had a logo and a few shirt ideas but it never came to be. Kind of regret not taking the chance. Hopefully we can work on something together!
