‘It will never happen’: Snowden laughs off suggestion Julian Assange or himself would ever get Nobel Peace Prize

 

 Snowden laughs off suggestion Julian Assange or himself would ever get Nobel Peace Prize

 

There is zero chance that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange would receive the Nobel Peace Prize, but it’s not like he wants one, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden said.

Snowden burst into laughter during an interview with the Russian media on Thursday, when the host asked him if Assange or he could imagine their nominations for the prestigious international award lead to either of them receiving it. “It will never happen,” he assured.

“The thing is, someone like Julian Assange does not take the risks he has taken for a chance to win some award,” Snowden added. “And I think doing good deeds is the only reward that is required.”

Other questions were about personal matters, like Snowden’s progress in learning the Russian language. Snowden has been living in the country since 2013, when he got stranded at a Moscow airport after his passport was revoked by the US government during his transit flight from Hong Kong to Latin America. Moscow offered him asylum and later permanent residency for himself and his wife, Lindsay Mills.

Snowden acknowledged that his Russian will likely never be as good as a native speaker’s and said that some day his son, whom Mills gave birth to in Russia, would teach him the language. He also joked that his 2017 marriage proposal to Mills was rather belated and that if had waited any longer, “she probably would have taken it personally.”

The interview was part of an event dedicated to the beginning of the school year in Russia.

broken heart... just to answer OP's question ...  with the latest update considering Edward Snowden ...surprise

 

Snowden Receives Russian Passport After Taking Citizenship Pledge  

Russian citizenship eliminates possibility of extradition

SUN DEC 4, AT 1:00 AM  

 

Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor who exposed the U.S. government's unconstitutional mass surveillance programs, received a Russian passport on Thursday after taking the country's citizenship oath.

"Edward received a Russian passport yesterday and took the oath in accordance with the law," his lawyer Anatoly Kucherena said, according to Russian media. "He is, of course, happy, thanking the Russian Federation for the fact that he received citizenship."

 

That citizenship comes with an enormously valuable feature:

"Under the Constitution of Russia, he can no longer be extradited to a foreign state,” said Kucherena.

 

Snowden faces prosecution on espionage charges for giving journalists an enormous volume of classified documents about NSA surveillance programs.

In 2013, Snowden famously traveled from Hawaii, where he worked for the NSA, to Hong Kong, where he arranged to meet journalists Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras.

Snowden's wife, Lindsay Mills, is also seeking Russian citizenship. The couple lives in Moscow with their two sons, who were born in Russia.

Pleas for then-President Donald Trump to pardon Snowden -- along with Julian Assange-- fell on deaf ears.

 

icnif77:

Edward Snowden @Snowden:

"I'm in Russia because the White House intentionally canceled my passport to trap me here. They *downed the President of Bolivia's diplomatic aircraft* to prevent me from leaving, and continue to interfere with my freedom of movement to this day.

In case that was unclear."

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
