"The Recalibration of Awareness – Apr 20/21, 2012 (Kryon channeled by Lee Carroll) (Subjects: Old Energy, Recalibration Lectures, God / Creator, Religions/Spiritual systems (Catholic Church, Priests/Nun’s, Worship, John Paul Pope, Women in the Church otherwise church will go, Current Pope won’t do it), Middle East, Jews, Governments will change (Internet, Media, Democracies, Dictators, North Korea, Nations voted at once), Integrity (Businesses, Tobacco Companies, Bankers/ Financial Institutes, Pharmaceutical company to collapse), Illuminati (Started in Greece, with Shipping, Financial markets, Stock markets, Pharmaceutical money (fund to build Africa, to develop)), Shift of Human Consciousness, (Old) Souls, Women, Masters to/already come back, Global Unity.... etc.) - (Text version)

… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Delft, the Netherlands (ANTARA News) - Ten Indonesian lecturers are studying realistic mathematics education in Freudenthal Institute of Utrecht University, the Netherlands through a joint program of Director General of Higher Education (Dikti) and the Dutch institution, Nuffic Neso Indonesia.

Realistic mathematics education is a teaching and learning of mathematics education which was first introduced Professor Freudenthal, and developed by Freudenthal Institution in the Netherlands.

The education makes math close to children and connecting mathematics with everyday activites. In addition, realistic mathematical idea emphasizes mathematics as a part of life, where students can engage in the same process as when a mathematical concept was first discovered by experts.

Realistic mathematics education master program for teachers is conducted through StuNed (Studeren in Nederland) scholarship program, Mervin said.

According to Mervin, realistic mathematics education in Indonesia has been implemented since 2001 through a pilot project in twelve elementary schools, and today has grown in hundreds of schools from Aceh to Ambon involving 20 teachers.

Freudenthal Institute of Utrecht University is a leading university in the Netherlands, and is one of the top 100 universities in the world.

"Hence, we convince the quality of higher education programs and its graduates will benefit to the development of mathematics education in Indonesia," Mervin said.

The human resources director of Dikti, Supriadi Rustad said the cooperation of mathematics education program involved Sriwijaya University (UNSRI), Palembang and Surabaya State University (UNESA).        

The two universities arrange the candidate selection process, as well as carrying out training to increase the English proficiency before departure to the Netherlands.

"The collaboration with the University of Uthrecht aims to improve the capacity of Indonesian lecturers towards a world-class university," Supriadi said, adding that currently Dikti is preparing a pre double degree for a year and double degree for 2 years, not only at mathematical education, but also covers other sciences.   

Nuffic Neso Indonesia is an agency appointed by the Netherlands government to handle international cooperation in the field of higher education, as well as to manage StuNed (Studeren in Nederland-Study in the Netherlands) scholarship program.

Every year StuNed program sends more than 200 Indonesian students to study in the Netherlands through master, short courses and tailor made training programs.
