The UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has announced that he is planning to develop a new fast-track immigration system in order to attract top scientists from the world to work in the UK. While making an official announcement, Johnson said that the decision for the same will be taken after consulting the Home Office and the Department of Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy. As per the reports from the government, the new fast-track visa option will attract elite researchers and specialists in science, engineering, and technology from math Olympiads in the beginning stage of their careers to winners of internationally recognized prizes and fellowships.

With the new visa option, the cap on numbers under the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visas will be abolished and also it will remove the need to have an employment offer before heading for the UK. The need to have an endorsement by a UK university will also be fast tracked with an “automatic endorsement” policy, as well as increasing the number of endorsing bodies from the five that are currently authorised. And following the implementation of this new immigration system, the dependents will gain full access to the labor market. The Pharma industry has already welcomed the new immigration proposals of the UK government.

According to Habib Ali of 121 Immigration Lawyers “For the proposed plan to have a significant impact on the number of scientist coming to the UK, the requirements that need to be met to obtain an endorsement should also be eased. At Present individuals looking for endorsement have to be recognised internationally in their field and receive support for their application from a prominent UK individual who is familiar with their work.”

According to Andrew Croydon, Head of Skills and Education at the ABPI, the incoming of the brightest and best scientists to the UK will play a critical role in the success in researching and developing medicines. If the implementation of this new immigration system is done wisely, the UK will be able to attract a great number of leading scientist and realize its vision of making it a “science superpower”.

Bringing clean water – Christopher Kenny’s Preservation Earth Project

Published

on

Science plainly shows that a human can survive three weeks without food, yet most individuals cannot survive three to four days without water! Dehydration sets in, and the person will go into shock and become vegetative even if they continue to breathe. In other words, water is an essential requirement. A living thing cannot thrive without it. Nonetheless, it is a horrifying truth that billions of people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. 

In developed countries, when everything from technology to luxury is available, receiving clean water at home is as ‘natural’ as breathing fresh air. Most individuals in advanced nations may not pay much attention to it, but this is not the case for the rest of the globe. Many countries continue to lack access to clean water sources or water appropriate for human use. Safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene at home should not be limited to the wealthy or those who live in cities. These are some of the most fundamental human health requirements, and all countries must ensure everyone has access to them.

The Preservation Earth Project (PEP) made its way to Tsaile, New Mexico. Over time, uranium mining, fracking, and pesticide abuse damaged the water supply, resulting in a high occurrence of numerous illnesses. Approximately 35% of the Navajo people do not have access to flowing water, and some must go to a remote location to fill barrels with water from a polluted local spring. 

There is no doubt that climate change is boosting storm strength. Recent natural catastrophes have heightened the need for groups to step up and give support, answers, and relief to individuals affected by such natural disasters. The Preservation Earth Project is a non-profit organization that provides support, education, and solutions to help society transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

A look back at Christoper Kenny’s life

Chris Kenny was born in Summit, New Jersey, on May 4, 1961. He was one of twelve children. In 1980, he received a B.A. in economics and finance from Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, North Carolina. He also attended New York University, earning a commercial real estate management degree from the Schack Institute. Since 2018, he has served as the head of Strategy and E-trading at Hartfield, Titus, and Donnelly. Kenny started his career in the U.S. In 1985. He worked as a Treasury Bond Broker. He formerly worked at Bonds.com as the director of fixed income sales and technological development. His academic background is in business and finance. Chris is passionate about developing and promoting renewable energy, mainly when it is used to assist people in need. The potential to aid those in urgent demand as a result of a human-caused environmental or natural disaster is not just a philanthropic act but also a once-in-a-lifetime educational opportunity.

He used solar power on mobile platforms as a backup power source for emergencies, water purification, and water pumping.

He has over 38 years of experience in finance as a salesperson, broker, trader, and investor.

Making clean water available to everyone

In 2012, Kenny founded The Preservation Earth Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It provides assistance, education, and alternative energy solutions to help society shift to renewable energy. It was involved and aided Haiti several times after the 2010 earthquake, providing portable solar electricity for water purification and medical facilities. In 2020, the business devised a solution for the Navajos’ contaminated water source. They collaborated with engineers and local officials to build, produce, and install a solar-powered water filtration system for the Navajo people of Tsaile, New Mexico. Other activities have included providing portable solar power to the “Cajun Navy” for rescue and clean-up in areas devastated by the 2015-2021 hurricane season in Louisiana. 

The project designed, delivered, and installed a solar-powered filtration system that will provide clean drinking water to the local Navajo community 365 days a year for many years to come. Several more initiatives are in the works to provide safe drinking water to Native American communities on the Navajo Reservation.

President’s letters of gratitude

President Jimmy Carter sent Chris two heartfelt letters encouraging him to continue his charitable work. He suggested calling Habitat for Humanity and asking if they were interested in collaborating on a few projects. He and Kenny both helped out at the charity.
