All staff play an integral role in keeping VON safe from potential cyber security attacks. How can you help to mitigate cyber security threats?

The Corporate Services leadership team rolled up February and kicked off this month with a half-day Lean training session, followed by three days of management and leadership development offered through Dale Carnegie Training.
Participants were happy to be together as a full team, for what many believe is the first time. The three subsequent days focused on honing skills in planning, team coaching and development, communication and problem-solving, in a series of participatory modules that saw everyone engaging and playing a role.
Nothing on Earth was quite like this strange brilliant object arcing through the night sky. What did he think it was? The Greeks were among the first to take a scientific look at the Moon and her phases. Around BC Greek philosopher and astronomer Pythagoras carefully observed the narrow boundary line—the terminator—between the dark and light hemispheres of the Moon.
Based on how the terminator curved across the surface of the Moon, he correctly surmised the Moon must be a sphere. A few centuries later, around BC, Aristotle took Pythagoras observations even further. By observing the shadow of the Earth across the face of the Moon during a lunar eclipse, Aristotle reckoned that the Earth was also a sphere.
He reasoned, incorrectly however, that the Earth was fixed in space and that the Moon, Sun and Stars revolved around it. He also believed the Moon was a translucent sphere that traveled in a perfect orbit around Earth. In the early s Astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus developed a model of the Solar System where Earth and the other planets orbited around the Sun, and the Moon orbited around Earth. These observations were revolutionary. Copernicus and Galileo upended the long-held Aristotelian view of the heavens as a place where Earth was the center of the Universe and the Moon was a smooth, polished orb.
Telescopes and new minds helped scientist understand that the Earth and planets orbited around the Sun and the Moon was a battered and cratered satellite held in our own orbit.
