#YFUer Jonathan was reunited with his host parents after 13 years! He had this to say about the experience, "Though it's been 13 years since my summer in #KitaKyushu, some things never change - Otosan and Okasan are still the most generous, hilarious, and adventurous host parents around!" Have you been able to see your host family again? 💜
⛓Blockchain Tool to Track Food Along Supply Chain⛓
▪️World Wildlife Fund-Australia (WWF-Australia) has announced the launch of a supply chain tool that uses blockchain to allow businesses and consumers to track food items.
▪️The platform, dubbed OpenSC, is the product of a partnership between WWF-Australia and BCG Digital Ventures (BCGDV) — the global corporate venture, investment and incubation arm of United States-based Boston Consulting Group.
▪️According to a post on the WWF site, the system allows both businesses to track products they produce, and consumers to view the origins of said products via a “unique blockchain code at the product’s point of origin.” ▪️The platform distributes QR codes to products made by client corporations signing up to the scheme. The codes are then linked to a blockchain platform to allow consumers to check the origin and life cycle of the specific product.
▪️The aim is reportedly to empower consumers with the knowledge of exactly what they are buying so they can purposely make an ethical choice.
▪️In turn, producers will no longer be able to use the complexities of supply chains to disguise dubious sourcing and production practices.
Breath it all in,
Let it all out.
Today I'm gonna write to you what I'm all about.
Sometimes with yourself, you will have some doubt, but it doesn't matter, as long as you stay true to that route.
Shout shout shout,
You gonna have to break out,
Because you're in charge of how things will turn out.
I'm excited about my future,
But it's so uncertain at the same time.
Climb, climb, climb,
To think about life is no crime.
You have to get ready,
Because any day could be showtime.

Meu segundo aniversário longe de casa. Resolvi me presentear e viajar para refletir, descançar e curtir. Não importa se sozinho ou acompanhado apenas vá, viva a experiência, conheça outra cultura, outras pessoas e aproveite para praticar um pouquinho o tal do English. Haha

O Visa TravelMoney é um cartão pré-pago emitido em moeda estrangeira. Osmais utilizados sao: Dólar americano e Euro.
Você carrega o cartão e pode utilizá-lo em mais de 30 milhões de estabelecimentos credenciados à Visa.
O cartão pode ser recarregado sempre que necessário. A recarga é feita a distância pela Central de Atendimento ou nas agências que trabalham com câmbio.
A consulta de saldo é feita pela internet e nos terminais Visa Plus, no exterior.
Segurança, praticidade, comodidade, proteção contra flutuações de câmbio e nao cobra juros.
O preço da recarga é superior ao do papel moeda, devido ao IOF que nessa modalidade é de 6,38%, tornando sua aquisição menos atrativa.
Se você vai passar muitos tempo fora, aconselho adquirir o cartão com a carga mínima, que pode variar de 50 a 100 unidades da moeda (Dolar ou Euro), pois em caso de emergência, você terá uma forma fácil de receber dinheiro.
Welcome to the Global Epilepsy Exchange Leah! 🌎🌍🌏 We are pleased to feature your story on the exchange. Leah is from Norway. She has an inspiring story in which she has battled about 100-150 seizures per month. Leah is currently waiting for an operation because the medication is not controlling the seizures. Stay strong Leah. We are wishing you well. Thank you for sharing. Read about Leah’s #story below:
“Hi! My name is Leah, i’m 29 years old from Norway. I got Epilepsy when I was 21. But I’m actually born with it, it’s called cortical dysplasia. My life stopped completely when I was 21, I got depressed, had so much anxiety I did not get out of the house much. But now I don’t let it stop me! Even when I had 100-150 seizures every month I was in charge of my life, still am! Only negative thing is that no medication is working, so I’m wating for an operation.” 💜

Self awareness is a powerful tool. Know what your strengths are and what your weaknesses are.
Work on your strengths first. You’ll accomplish far more using your strengths.
Your weaknesses should be looked at more as hobbies. When you have some disposable time to spare, this is when you should work on improving your weaknesses.
If you have goals in life then be strategic with your time and don’t use up so much of it on something you can have someone else better than you help with and offer what you’re good at to help someone else.
We are looking forward to celebrating with you tomorrow as we continue our teaching series "Exchange". You can celebrate with us at 9:45 & 11:15 am. We also have a service in Spanish at 4:00 pm. #upwardcf#youbelonghere#exchange
