    The New Heights Show on Education with Host Charlotte McGuire

    in Education

    Topic:  “Common Core Science Standards Questioned”


     "Charlotte will share truths, and dispel myths about Common Core.  So families can come together in knowledge, action, and voices for education."  Common Core is a set of national academic standards for designated subjects, currently, Mathematics and English Language Arts/literacy (ELA).  These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade throughout their K-12 education. The standards were created to ensure all students graduate from high school with knowledge and skills to be college and career ready. This episode will focus on one perspective and its background and premises for the development of Common Core national standards.


    Our Mission:


    The New Heights Educational Group Inc. supports literacy for children and adults by offering a range of educational support services.  Such services include assisting families in their selection of schools, organization of educational activities, and acquisition of materials.  We promote a healthy learning environment and offer enrichment programs for families of preschool and school age children, including children with special needs.

    OBAP 's ACE Academy and Remembering James Jamesie Brewster

    in Culture

    Welcome OBAP (Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals)  Aviation Career Education Academy (ACE). OBAP ACE Academies are co-sponsored with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other select organizations or institutions.


    Their academies include many interesting educational activities and field trips. During an OBAP academy, students can expect to participate in activities that feature STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) components. They also include trips to aviation related facilities and receive tours of areas the general public normally never see. Also, their academies offer students the opportunity to perform actual flights in a general aviation aircraft. Traditionally, these flights are easily the highlights of a student's experience.


    *********


    Born on St. Croix in 1929, James Jamesie Brewster is known throughout the Caribbean as the undisputed King of Scratch Band Music. He is known for his humorous, provocative and playful ompositions and for his lively performances. He has performed throughout the Caribbean and in Europe and has recorded a number of albums over the past fifty years.


    Surprisingly, when Jamesie was younger, his father only allowed him to play percussion and not guitar. Jamesie was determined to prove to his father that he was capable of playing guitar and so made his own out of a sardine can and a piece of white pine lumber.


    With a hand-carved keyboard and key-head and strings made out of twine from an old sack of flour, this guitar has become his signature instrument. In the six decades that have followed, Jamesie has continued to use this type of guitar when performing and recording music, although not exclusively.


    Jamesie is a Crucian from the instant he wakes up and in the way he eats, dresses, sits, smokes, talks. He makes kitchen implements out of mahogany, makes musical instruments out of food tins, makes melee out of news.

    Phytic Acid & Antinutrients – Life Promoting or Early Death?

    in Nutrition

    We all know what a nutrient is, right? But have you ever heard of antinutrients? Do you know what they do in the body? Should you even care? What’s the big deal anyway?


    There is a famous quote by Ann Wigmore that goes: “The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” ... and in most cases that is correct. However, in some instances, it’s simply not that straight forward. Sometimes, certain foods can be a double edged sword.
