It mirrors those required in the UK, and brings together aviation security personnel from across the Caribbean.John Pears, the lead instructor for the course said, “AGA has a long history with the UK Overseas Territories, having been contracted to provide aviation and maritime security advice to Governor’s, Directors of Civil Aviation and air and sea port personnel from 1998 – 2012.”He further stated that “during this time both this course and the training for trainers course which will be conducted next week, were delivered annually although this is the first time that they are being delivered in the Turks and Caicos Islands.”In a statement, Lindamae Malcolm, TCIAA Security Manager said “the Airports Authority prides itself as an organization that offers its employees the opportunity for progressive training in their respective fields to ensure they are equipped with the key skills necessary to operate in a challenging environment.”She added, “we recognize the importance of continuous staff training, especially for those individuals engaged in exercising security controls.” The Airports Authority has an obligation to meet international standards, and training plays an important role in the process.

Lindamae concluded that “the aviation security field is now a highly sought after career option.”John Pears, a veteran security expert, will be assisted by Omar Bolivar, both of whom bring several years of experience to the classroom. The training is being conducted at the FORTIS conference facility on Leeward Highway.

The Company Leading the Future of Farming

first_imgMay 23, 2013 4 min read This story appears in the June 2013 issue of . Subscribe » Sustainability » Love & Connecting » Invention » Urban Life »Rural LifeFood & Beverage » Work Life » Gaming » Crowdsourcing & Collaboration » Sports & Recreation »Here’s a crazy idea: Combine 3-D printing and tissue engineering to “print” animal products and tackle some of the planet’s biggest problems. Animal farming, after all, accounts for about half of all human-caused greenhouse gases, taking place on one-third of the available, non-frozen land on Earth. All to feed people’s appetites for 300 million tons of meat a year.Enter Gabor and Andras Forgacs, father-and-son founders of Modern Meadow, a company they started in 2011 that may very well be the model for the farm of the future.Five years earlier they helped start Organovo, a firm that makes human tissues for pharmaceutical research and other medical applications, and was a commercial spinoff of Gabor’s pioneering work at the University of Missouri in “bioprinting,” which he describes as “extending biological structures in three dimensions.” Modern Meadow’s output is based in part on this work. On a basic level, the process involves using 3-D printing to deposit clumps of cells into patterns of tissue. The particles fuse post-printing–similar to cell development in embryos. Unlike Organovo’s final products, which must be kept alive, Modern Meadow’s postmortem animal tissues are simpler to build and faster to market.Leather, a $60 billion trade globally, is first on the agenda. “What we build is skin, or hide, and we do this elaborate game to turn it into leather,” explains Gabor, who serves as chief scientific officer of Modern Meadow, which is based in Columbia, Mo., and Moffett Field, Calif. A prototype material will debut later this year, so the company is currently focused on building out commercial relationships. “Our goal after that is to be able to do a limited production run and to incorporate [the leather] into fashion accessories and apparel in 2014,” says Andras, CEO. “Then, it’s all about scaling.”Interest has been resounding. Large manufacturers and designers of apparel and accessories–even automotive manufacturers–stand to benefit from a more efficient leather supply chain. For consumers, fabricated leather could alleviate environmental and animal-welfare concerns.Meat is a longer-term project but should have similar financial blessings. On the research side the company has garnered equally keen interest, winning competitive grants from the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and scoring funding from organizations like Peter Thiel’s Breakout Labs. “The grants were approved and awarded with the speed of light,” Gabor says, noting how extraordinary it is for research to be backed with such “glowing fanfare.” To date, Modern Meadow has received $2 million in funding, an amount that should skyrocket as the company completes its prototypes and pursues further phases of grant funding from Small Business Innovation Research. “It illustrates where we stand,” Gabor declares, “that what we are doing is timely, we have the right reputation, and it is of interest to society.”More Rural BrillianceFreight FarmsFreight Farms upcycles shipping containers into stackable modular mini-farms, reducing the footprint required for growing crops and allowing for locally grown produce in urban areas.Wide Open SpacesA deal site for hunting and fishing gear, Wide Open Spaces also curates under-the-radar brands.AgLocalAgLocal scored $1 million in funding last year from Andreessen Horowitz for an online platform that allows local and family farms to sell responsibly raised meat directly to consumers.Rent-a-Goat.comOnline directory Rent-a-Goat.com lists herders around the world who rent out their goats for clearing away unwanted brush and weeds, as an eco-friendly alternative to machinery or chemicals.Kusa”Syn-turf” flip-flops from Kusa make you feel like there’s grass beneath your feet.Front Yard CoopThe Full Monty by Front Yard Coop: A solar-powered, self-propelled coop that moves around the yard to provide birds with fresh foraging, while a fence keeps them safe from predators.FarmersOnly.comDating site FarmersOnly.com solves the problem of how to meet someone when you work on a farm all day.WildBlueWildBlue, part of the Exede internet service, offers high-speed internet to rural communities (virtually every home and small business in the contiguous U.S.) via satellite; no need for cable or phone lines.MetwitThe Metwit iOS and web app aggregates weather information from users who report local conditions (including photos); a smart push notification system makes it the first crowdsourced severe-weather alert system.   Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
