EVOLVINGEDUCATION Technological advancements, reliance on computers and the development of artificial intelligence and automation means the nature of work is evolving. And experts are saying education needs to evolve with it. But what does that look like? First of all, less emphasis will be put on a formal post-secondary education as individuals become highly skilled as self-taught coders, graphic designers and in other computer-based work. Talent comes in many forms and thanks to online learning platforms, workers are now able to acquire skills without attending university. Tech companies such as Google and Apple often train new employees through apprenticeship programs, much like electricians, carpenters and other trades have been doing for decades. The benefit of this approach is that students are able to earn an income as they learn, eliminating the loan debt that often bogs down a graduate of a traditional post-secondary program.
NATURE-INSPIREDFURNITURE ANDDECOR If you love nature, you likely love nature-inspired home decor. And there are so many ways to use the materials and colours of the outdoors in your interior living spaces. If you don’t have these items yet, consider incorporating them into your home. A wood-framed chair with the back and seat made out of woven leather or another strong textile brings the right blend of comfort and style. Seagrass baskets add a nice touch to bathrooms, bedrooms and living rooms and are extremely useful for storing odds and ends. And why decide on one shade of blue when you can have several? Nothing says sea and sky like an ombre throw blanket that fades from a navy blue to a blue so pale it’s nearly white.
BRAIN TEASER - ISLANDFRUITS

The four islands in the Tropicana group each produce a different type of fruit. Can you match each island name with the type of fruit produced, the island population (293, 305, 328, 402) and its location (A-D) in the chain? 1. The Kolahani islanders in habit the island west of but no immediately next to Holahu island. Holahu doesn’t produce bananas or pineapples and has a higher population than Wahani island. 2. Molaku island isn’t the one with a population of 293, nor is it the one immediately next to the island with a population of 293. 3. The islanders who grow bananas inhabit the island east of but no immediately next to the island of Kolahani. 4. The island at location D isn’t the one with the highest population. 5. Molaku island (which isn’t the one at location B) is the next island due west of the one where papaya fruit is grown. 6. The islanders who grow coconuts don’t inhabit the island immediately next to the one where bananas are grown.
