Saw this in the news and thought it was a nice little story. Good that a talented guy with Down Syndrome is given a pretty visible role on kids TV.

It sounds like he's achieved a lot in his life considering the hurdles he's faced (and is a Mencap ambassador), so is a good example of kids tuning in of what can be achieved in life no matter the challenges in your path.

When you think about it, people with Down Syndrome are shut out of society to an extent that exceeds their problems. This guy is at least out there doing his part to ensure that people see the person, not just the condition.

Fair play to the lad. Good luck to him.

100%. He's clearly a strong character, and it's good to see that paying dividends for him. No doubt some will cry tokenism, but often those same individuals don't leave room for any avenue that they don't perceive as such. In essence they just want to keep certain people down unless there's something it in for them personally (ideologically, financially etc). This lad has determination and a backbone. That's what counts.

Tiny Home Village in Albuquerque Helps Homeless Transition With Social Services and Opportunities - [Link]

Quote In battling against the American homeless epidemic, it pays to think outside the box. The Tiny Home Village in Albuquerque isnít just a place for someone to sleep out of the weather, itís an occupational therapy project that helps the homeless reconnect with values and responsibility.

Set up to cultivate a strong community, the power of routine, and a sense of pride in oneself and surroundings, the Tiny Home Village (THV) hopes that its residents will be better prepared for when they finally get off the street.

The County of Bernalillo, New Mexico, secured a 30-year lease on a property owned by the Albuquerque Indian Center to build a walled and gated community of about 30 tiny houses that had doors which lock and climate control to give residents a strong enough sense of security and permanence that they could begin to really turn their life around.

Fantastic stuff, Apollo. Amazing how much of a difference someone can make to others lives and fortunes when they pour their efforts into it. Everyone deserves a chance to get out of a tough spot, they won't all take it, but ideas like this at least offer a path to a better future.

Belgium approves four-day week and gives employees the right to ignore their bosses after work - [Link]

"Workers in Belgium will soon be able to choose a four-day week under a series of labour market reforms announced on Tuesday.

The reform package agreed by the country's multi-party coalition government will also give workers the right to turn off work devices and ignore work-related messages after hours without fear of reprisal.

"We have experienced two difficult years. With this agreement, we set a beacon for an economy that is more innovative, sustainable and digital. The aim is to be able to make people and businesses stronger," Belgian prime minister Alexander de Croo told a press conference announcing the reform package."
