— Darrah Kauhane, Executive Director, HEF

HONOLULU, HAWAII, USA, November 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Highly trained and valuably skilled ophthalmologists from across the United States joined together to form a team of 19 volunteers that traveled to Yangon, Myanmar, this past month. The five-day Myanmar Eye Meeting (MEM) was held at the Yangon Eye Hospital, conducted by the Hawaiian Eye Foundation, and sponsored by Alcon, Allergan and Johnson + Johnson, along with American Vision Myanmar. MEM was attended by over 100 Burmese ophthalmology students and practicing ophthalmologists.

This year’s Meeting marked the country’s fourth MEM eye surgical training program since the country’s opening to democracy. A wide range of didactic topics were again included: glaucoma, cataracts, plastics, neuro-ophthalmology, refractive, pediatric, corneal and retinal disorders were covered in lectures, patient consultations, and live surgery demonstrations. Here, over 400 patients were examined and 36 surgeries were done to teach local doctors and assist with their difficult cases. Final follow-up appointments were conducted and confirm that all surgeries were successful. Our world-renowned specialists have done their job once again, while providing valuable education to Burmese ophthalmologists. We thank Drs. Philip Custer, Allen Eghrari, Armin Koestinger, Manchima Makornwattana, Dhanu Meleth, Maryam Najjar, Prem Subramanian, Pham Nhu Vinh Tuyen, and Hoang Chi Tam for their sharing surgical skills and knowledge.

This year, as in the past, we were asked to include hands-on basic skills training workshops for local residents. Topics included retinoscopy, refraction, keratometry, lensometry, tonometry, indirect ophthalmology, gonioscopy, visual fields, pediatric exams and optical coherence tomography. Added into the program was neurological exam and a suture lab, by request of the Burmese doctors. Nearly 40 residents and recent graduates were given one-on-one trainings on these topics thanks to the subspecialty doctors and Drs.Vo Thi Bao Chau, Donovan Reed, Susan Ruyle, Pyae Pyae Thien, along with Ophthalmic Technicians Tracy Cruz and Tramaine Davis. Special thanks to our photographer/videographer, Anthony Minassian, for capturing this incredible event on film to share with the world.

The HEF faculty members traveled to Myanmar at their own expense to donate their time. “We are thrilled to continue this ongoing relationship with the Yangon Eye Hospital and the Myanmar Ophthalmology Society. Our partnership grows stronger every year! We feel blessed to bring together such amazing professionals to share our mutual goals of education and compassionate, quality eye care,” said Darrah Kauhane, Executive Director of Hawaiian Eye Foundation. “The people of Myanmar inspire us to continue to reach out to other SE Asian countries and share this valuable program.” Myanmar has 350 ophthalmologists for all 55 million people. This represents a ratio of one ophthalmologist for 160,000 people, which is one-quarter of the World Health Organization’s target. Thus, the urgent need for ophthalmic training. Because of the event’s success, Hawaiian Eye Foundation was invited to return for MEM-V in 2021. The Foundation’s efforts in Myanmar are amplified by its scholarship programs for SE Asian ophthalmologists and ongoing Vietnamese, Cambodian and Indonesian symposiums. Coming soon to Laos!

The 501(c)(3) non-profit, Hawaiian Eye Foundation (HEF), for 35 years, has worked to ensure that all people have access to eye care. http://hawaiianeyefoundation.org.

Pheronym Treated Nematodes Three Times More Effective in Attacking Agricultural Pests

Citrus orchard

Second Peer Reviewed Study to Show Significant Efficacy in Company’s Patented Bio-remediation Technology

Third-party research continues to prove the extraordinary efficacy of our approach to neutralizing agricultural pests through bio-remediation”

— Dr. Fatma Kaplan, CEO of Pheronym

DAVIS, CA, USA, November 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pheronym, an ag-biotech pest control company, announced today the results of a second peer-reviewed study demonstrating the efficacy of their patented Nemastim™ pheromone extract for bioremediation of agricultural pests. In a joint study with the USDA and the University of Idaho, nematodes treated with pheromone extracts increased their effectiveness in invading host insects in soil by 300 percent. Additionally, the nematodes improved their rate of attack within four hours of treatment.

The research, led by Dr. David Shapiro-Ilan with the USDA-Agricultural Research Service Southeastern Fruit and Tree Nut Research Laboratory, focused on the citrus root weevil, which attacks 270 different plant species including citrus, sugarcane, vegetables, potatoes, strawberries, woody field-grown ornamentals, sweet potatoes, papaya, guava, mahogany and containerized ornamentals. Previous research from the USDA and the University of Idaho focused on the pecan weevil, showing improvements of up to 78 percent in the effectiveness of nematodes attacking their prey. The nematodes treated with pheromone extracts were found to disperse more than non-treated nematodes. In this current study, the investigators discovered that the same pheromones that increased beneficial nematode dispersal also increased infection (invasion into the host insect pest).

“Third-party research continues to prove the extraordinary efficacy of our approach to neutralizing agricultural pests through bio-remediation,” said Dr. Fatma Kaplan, CEO of Pheronym. “The full commercialization of Nemastim™ will put this powerful tool in the hands of the agricultural community.”

“We are pleased to see these impressive results,” said Dr. Ed Lewis, University of Idaho. “This is a truly effective approach and a dramatic improvement over the status quo.”

Look for the article in the December issue of the Journal of Nematology.

About Pheronym:
Award-winning Pheronym is an ag-biotech pest management company that enables sustainable farming through its novel platform of nematode pheromones. Based in Davis, California, the company uses a new pheromone to control plant-parasitic nematodes (microscopic roundworms) in an eco-friendly way and enhances beneficial nematodes’ efficacy to eliminate pest insects.

Munfarid bringing Immersive Programs to Nigerian Schools and Tourism Industry

Immersive Experience

Immersive Experience for Museum

Immersive Experiences for Museums, Heritage and Archaeological sites increasing globally, The technology is helping developing countries to share the history.

Immersive education counters the systematic barriers that impede the application of effective education strategy in Nigeria and opens up new horizons for enabling sustained access to quality education”

— Dr. Sana Farid – X-Reality & Ai Strategist

ABUJA, DUBAI, NIGERIA, November 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — After achieving massive success in the Middle East, Munfarid now enters a new era spreading its wings towards Nigeria with its flagship educational and training program VRXOne.

Munfarid brings several ambitious programs for Nigerian educational landscape that it will be unfolding in the coming months under the avid supervision of Oladimeji Obimakinda, the Education Futurist who is passionate about, in his own words, “helping start-ups and young entrepreneurs to set up the ecosystems around communities nurturing innovation and creativity.”

OPENING UP IMMERSIVE TECHNOLOGIES TO NIGERIAN EDUCATION SYSTEM

Aiming to help elevate the education crisis in Nigeria, Munfarid seeks to bring virtual lessons to local schools and provide a stimulating learning environment as well as an opportunity for global exposure to Nigerian students.

According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, “One in every five of the world’s out-of-school children is in Nigeria.” Munfarid also aims to close this gap by helping to educate out-of-school children with the use of VR technology.

This initiative will assist in motivating and bringing more school-aged children back to classrooms considering that about 10.5 million children in Nigeria do not have access to primary education even though it is officially free and compulsory.

ENABLING A GLOBALLY COMPETITIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT THROUGH STEM TEACHER TRAINING

Teachers are, essentially, the backbone in any human capital development system. Unfortunately, Nigeria faces a severe lack of teachers with unqualified primary teachers exceeding 40% of the current teaching staff.

Having trained thousands of teachers in the STEM education system in the Middle East, Munfarid is now geared up to bring the same training opportunities for the empowerment of teachers in Nigeria.

Dr. Sana Farid, CEO & Co-Founder of Munfarid and an XR/Ai Strategist herself, is the driving force behind these initiatives and believes that they fall in line with the UNICEF’s mission to empower local Nigerian teachers with the core knowledge and competencies in using proven pedagogical methodologies to deliver quality education.

Sharing her thoughts on the application of VR to enhance learning opportunities in Nigeria, she said, “All over the world, education is believed to be the key to development. Immersive technologies can help build the solid educational dynamics that would create an enabling environment for quality education in Nigeria, at the same time helping to generate increased demand for education.”

EMPOWERING TEACHERS WITH 21st-CENTURY SKILLS

STEM skills – science, technology, engineering, and maths – have gained increased importance in today’s information-based and fast-changing world. Consequently, STEM professions are also some of the fastest-growing and best-paid careers today. According to the US Department of Commerce, STEM occupations are growing at 17% compared to others at 9.8%.

Not only STEM education creates critical thinkers, entrepreneurs, and innovators, it also backs the shift towards sustained growth and a stable economy by developing the supporting human capital. This is the system STEM.org, a STEM education research, and the credentialing organization has introduced to various economies around the world.

So the best way to introduce youth to these skills is by integrating the school curriculum with STEM education and increase student’s exposure to STEM subjects. Since this is only possible with the help of teachers, Munfarid will be bringing the cutting-edge STEM.org programs to train Nigerian teachers in STEM teaching and learning techniques.

These programs will equip teachers with the necessary skills to further inform, encourage, support and mentor their students on STEM subjects and careers. As a result, the teachers will be able to play their part in bridging the ethnic, gender and economic gaps as well as local and global disparities.

USING IMMERSIVE TECHNOLOGY TO ENCOURAGE SUSTAINABLE TOURISM

Furthermore, Munfarid will also be working closely working with its partners for the National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM) under the leadership of Director General Alhaji Abdulkarim Oshioke Kadiri. The aim is to use immersive technologies to bring the Nigerian historical and cultural heritage to locals as well as foreigners with the combined objective to promote learning and encourage domestic and international tourism.

On the subject of digitalization of the museum artefacts and monuments during a workshop, DG Abdulkarim Kadiri reflected on the use of virtual reality platform, saying it would create, “a museum without walls where Nigerians can sit in the comfort of their houses and visit any museums or monuments of their choice in the country.” He added, “We will be able to showcase them on social media for people to see and learn to appreciate our culture.”

A shift towards implementing the latest disruptive technologies in education is definitely the way to empower the local Nigerian youth in becoming self-sufficient and active contributors in the sustainable development of their own country, in particular, and Africa, in general.

At the same time, the digitalization of local information infrastructure will bring the Nigerian culture to the world, helping to improve the local economy through tourism and generate future employment opportunities for local people.
