With such a significant number of Spanish speaking workers across various industries, it confirms the need of having up-to-date training available in Spanish.

Froguts, the only provider of subscription-based dissection simulations and labs for K-12 and higher education, is now being offered to schools by leading animal rights groups in India in an effort to fulfill country-wide governmental guidelines banning the use of animal dissection in schools, universities, and colleges. This is a major step towards implementing the 2012 India Ministry of Environment and Forestss directive that bans the use of animal dissection, favoring computer-aided teaching methods.
The decision to ban animal dissections by the Indian government was lauded by regional animal rights and ethics groups, who then approached Froguts. The Mahatma Gandhi-Doerenkamp Center for Alternatives to Use of Animals in Life Science Education and PETA India are offering training and are subsidizing subscriptions to Froguts. This allows schools within India to comply with the ruling while still meeting their rigorous educational standards.
David Hughes, Co-Founder and CEO of Froguts, says, Were pleased that Froguts is being used to satisfy an important educational requirement in schools throughout India. Depending on need, the software was devised to either augment or replace actual animal dissection studies, so we feel that students will benefit from an enriching educational experience while working within the parameters of the legislation.
He added, We created Froguts 13 years ago because we felt that computer simulations added an important component to education, allowing greater access to learning. Our driving inspiration lies in the educational opportunities Froguts provides. Plus, using Froguts has significant cost advantages over actual dissections, which is so important for education within the U.S. and worldwide.
Legislating animal dissections is not new, and within the U.S. there are currently laws in 16 states and Wash. D.C. that mandate dissection alternatives like computer simulations be provided within schools. According to information from PETA U.S., in addition to India, animal dissection is banned or restricted in Argentina, Australia, Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, and Slovakia.

Dr. Paul G. Swingle, has long held the belief that neurofeedback is a powerful tool with enormous potential. In his Vancouver clinic, he uses neurotherapy as a part of the treatment for a wide range of disorders as well as with clients who just want to perform better at work, on stage or at a sport. On Tuesday, March 4th, Dr. Swingle will discuss his brand of neurotherapy in a free webinar on “Adding Neurotherapy to Your Practice” hosted by the Biofeedback Federation of Europe.
In the past few years, the field of neurofeedback has gained a lot of attention. It is increasingly being used in peak performance training among elite and professional athletes. In 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics recognized biofeedback as a level one intervention for the treatment of ADHD. According to Dr. Swingle, one of the best things about neurotherapy is, “It marries well with other kinds of therapy whether it’s experiential, EMDR, cognitive behaviour and so forth. Once the brain is functioning more efficiently, then it just markedly enhances the efficacy of these other procedures.” Health professionals interested in adding neurotherapy to their practice will learn about Dr. Swingle’s ClinicalQ and Braindriving methods.
The ClinicalQ is an EEG assessment developed by Dr. Swingle that measures brain activity at five critical locations. The results of the assessment are then compared to a clinical database that is remarkably accurate in terms of indicating why a person is seeking counseling. Dr. Swingle sums it up like this, “I saw a client the other day – a young man who had been exposed to a recent severe emotional stressor that triggered a predisposition to depressed mood states. When I explained this to him, his jaw dropped to the floor. How could I possibly know that from looking at brainwave activity? Well, the brain tells us everything. If you’ve been exposed to a severe emotional stressor recently, it is very likely that the brain is going to show the effects. And if you have a predisposition for a certain disorder such as depression, exposure to severe emotional stressors may likely trigger that condition.”
After the initial assessment, the BFE ClinicalQ and BrainDryvr software generates a report that interprets the data and flags values that Dr. Swingle considers to be outside of the “norms” he sees in his practice. The report also provides guidance on how to use Dr. Swingle’s “braindriving” method to optimize EEG amplitudes based on the report. Feedback includes combinations of tones, music, harmonics and animations.
The remaining webinars in the series are: “Internet Addiction”, “Is it Really ADHD?” and “Keeping Mentally Sharp While You Age”.
