Image by BC Gov Photos
By 2022, BC is expecting one million job openings in the province created by retirements and our growing economy. "BC’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint: Re-engineering Education and Training” is a comprehensive strategy to re-engineer BC’s education and apprenticeship systems.
The strategy sets out three overarching objectives to maximize the potential of BC’s workforce: A head-start to hands-on learning in our schools; A shift in education and training to better match jobs in demand; A stronger partnership with industry and labour to deliver training and apprenticeships.
Do you wish to work from home in Atlanta? Your home job is waiting for you.
There are so many naysayers when it comes to believing whether or not you can actually work from home. People either don’t want to believe it, because it might force them to do something about their own situation of trading their time for pennies.
However, there are so many people on the internet who are proving that you CAN make money from home by using your computer and learning the necessary skills it takes.
I”m proof of that. I started back in 2007 doing bum marketing. I wrote about 100 articles for ezinearticles and started linking to my websites and promoting affiliates offers and more.
I was fortunate to actually make money soon after I began with a company that is still in business today.
You can contact me for that company .. it is probably the easiest and fastest way to see profit. So if you want an ego boost, I will share that with you.
Connect with me on Facebook:
.. and tell me that you want the link to my first profitable adventure online.
Working from home in Atlanta or any other place in the United States or world, for that matter is about knowledge, action, and determination.
“Those who succeed never quit and those who doubt, never start.” Felecia Townsend
Seriously, I just made that up .. so i hope it hasn’t been said before. In fact, I think I will post it on my wall.

ATLANTA – When the lights in the Georgia Dome fade to black after the final Falcons game there Sunday, some people who live in its shadow will still be asking the same question: will they ever be able to rise up, too?
They’re the ones who remembered the major investments promised to their neighborhood when the Dome was first built 25 years ago.
“They were promised millions of dollars and it did not materialize,” agreed John Gordon of the group Friends of English Avenue.
So will the .5 billion Mercedes-Benz Dome be any better for the people who live across the street?
There are some signs — measured in inches, not yards — that things could be changing in the right direction.
“This is my neighborhood. I live here,” Benjamin Wills, 30, pointed out as we walked along North Avenue near Lindsay Street. “So I’m a neighbor just as much as I’m the principal of this school.”
The school is Peace Preparatory Academy, the first school to operate in this neighborhood in the last 20 years. Right now 36 children spend at least part of the day inside a converted church, getting three meals and a safe education.
For years though this has been a place on the map largely known for two things: first, a cheap, overflow parking destination for Falcons fans, including those who will be back again Sunday.
“We won’t be tailgating but there will be people parking in front of our home for sure,” Wills predicted. “So we’ll get to be part of the fanfare whether we want to or not.”
But mostly this has been a place the feds once called the largest outdoor heroin market in the Southeast, where a largely white customer base from outside Atlanta kept dealers hustling around the clock.
In the summer of 2015 local and federal authorities decided to try something new here. They invited 20 people the community identified as low level drug dealers and gave them a choice to turn their lives around or face federal charges if they returned to selling heroin. Police say four of the 20 didn’t think they were serious.
They were. All four face federal drug charges. The busy streets seem quieter now. We noticed it. The people who live here noticed it, too.
John Gordon spent the last decade trying to make life better in the English Avenue neighborhood, ever since the Atlanta businessman was moved to action by news stories about corrupt cops killing an elderly woman, Kathryn Johnston, inside her home.
His non-profit helped create two community gardens in places where only drug dealers and weeds once thrived. They also bought homes to provide for police officers now trusted by the neighborhood.
In fact, a tip from someone in English Avenue led Atlanta Police and federal authorities to bust up a heroin network here using Facebook to advertise its wares. Four pleaded guilty this week to conspiracy to distribute heroin.
“I think there’s ample evidence to support the belief that things are on the upswing,” Gordon observed.
“You still wouldn’t come over here after the sun goes down, would you?” I asked.
“I would not,” Gordon replied without hesitation. “I’ve been here and left that church at night and you can hear gunfire.”
The US Attorney’s office says arrests have dropped nearly 40 percent here since they started the Drug Market Intervention program. They admit some of the drug dealing may just not be as obvious as the guys dealing on the streets or through social media.
“Do you feel safer, do you think your kids are safer walking the streets in this area now?” I asked principal Wills.
“I think in some ways it’s just shifted and changed. When you’re talking about the trajectory of someone’s life, I mean that’s going to take a long time.”
Falcons owner Arthur Blank’s Foundation has pledged a minimum of million on the Westside communities, with millions more coming from other groups. The idea is to attract investment to create new jobs and businesses. You can click here to see where the money has gone so far.
“Are you comfortable with the Blank Foundation’s commitment to this neighborhood?” I asked Wills.
“I don’t question the intent. I do question the implementation.”
Little things, like the wooden planters we sat on during his interview. Wills says Blank company volunteers dropped them and a picnic table across the street from his school one day without ever asking what he thought.
“As you can see, it doesn’t look very beautiful because there’s no ownership to it,” Wills pointed out as we looked at the dead plants inside. “I’m not sure how many people would sit here and have lunch at the picnic table in front of this house that looks like it’s about to fall into itself.”
Gordon saw it differently.
“I have every belief that Blank’s commitment is real,” he stressed.

Several illegal dumpsites in Perry County on the Wayne National Forest were cleaned up on Saturday, September 7 thanks to more than 30 volunteers that were on the job early near Shawnee off Dutch Ridge Road on Twp. Rd 247.
The volunteers worked four hours and collected over 200 scrap tires off the National Forest. With the help of a Monday Creek Township backhoe and operator, the volunteers managed to fill a 30 yard open dumpster donated by Waste Management out of Perry County.
The illegal dumpsite included bags of household garbage, furniture, carpet and construction materials (roofing shingles).
Organizers say they made a big impact, but will plan further cleanups in this part of Perry County.
The public is urged to call authorities if they see anyone dumping in the area.
The public is reminded that Illegal dumping is an environmental crime. Dumping tires is a felony offense in Ohio. Dumpsites with scrap tires provide an ideal breeding ground for mosquitos. Severe illnesses have been attributed to disease-carrying mosquitoes originating from scrap tire piles.
This volunteer event was held in partnership with Perry County Waste Reduction & Recycling, Perry County Juvenile Court, Rural Action and the Appalachia Ohio Zero Waste Initiative, Wayne National Forest, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, Monday Creek Township, Perry County Engineer, and Keep Southeast Ohio Beautiful.
This event was also held in support of the Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup Campaign.
Tennessee Republican state Sen. Bo Watson warned on Tuesday that a plan to bring 200,000 jobs to his state was a “magnet for unionized labor, intentionally.”
According to Chattanooga Times Free Press, Watson told the state Senate Commerce Committee that approving 5.8 million in tax incentives for Volkswagen was dangerous because unions could change the “culture” of Tennessee…

Campus rape is a huge problem, and now we may know another reason why. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/join
“A Wisconsin wrestling coach says he was fired for reporting sexual assault allegations to police—rather than telling the university first.
Timothy Fader, former head coach at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, has filed a federal lawsuit against the school’s athletic director and former chancellor alleging retaliation, wrongful termination, and defamation.
It wasn’t the only sexual assault claim Fader reported. The first time he reported such allegations to the university on behalf of a woman, in January 2013, officials failed to document it, he claims.”
