Why Mentorship Is The Next Horizon is Education: How mentorship and learning can be used help people

With the unexpected and literally world-changing impact COVID19 has had nations, states, communities, school, educators, learners and even business and industry have had to scramble to figure out "The New Normal". What if the new normal isn't so novel after all? What if we reframe the problem from traditional school and pedagogy and the supply and demand nature of traditional classroom-based education and training to the value and efficacy of mentorship? Peer to peer, near peer, and traditional mentorship, knowledge and new ways of reaching out, connecting and growing. I know a thing or two about this. Please allow me to mentor you on the complexities of this new paradigm shift and what I have learned over 20 years of mentoring in Applied STEM.

Rickenbacker and Air Cargo setting all time records

Hayleigh Colombo  – Staff reporter, Columbus Business First


Columbus' cargo airport is setting records for traffic during Covid-19 thanks to high shipments of personal protective equipment coming into the region.

Rickenbacker International Airport in June set all-time records for both the number of international freighters that arrived, as well as the tonnage of cargo that was offloaded, according to the Columbus Regional Airport Authority.

There were 120 international arrivals, more than the previous record of 109 arrivals set in November 2018.

In addition, 20.2 million pounds of cargo were offloaded, surpassing the previous record of 15.9 million pounds. That record was also set in November 2018.
