Q: What was the coldest temperature you've ever lived on?

I was in Huachuan, Heilongjiang (6h by bus from Harbin) on -33*C ( -27*F) during the winter of 2010.

 

Here is pic from Oymyakon, Siberia's habitual area with the lowest temp. of -62*C (-80*F):

Coldest village on Earth: Residents of Siberian settlement unfazed by  -62*C temperatures (VIDEO)

 

The Siberian outpost of Oymyakon is officially the coldest permanently inhabited place on Earth - yet residents incredibly go about their day-to-day routines despite bone-chilling temperatures of -62*C (-80*F).

In fact, it’s quite possible that it’s even colder than -62*C, given that the Siberian Times reports the town’s digital thermometer stopped working when it reached that mark – because of the chilling cold. 

Local schoolchildren were finally allowed to skip classes after temperatures in the village dropped below -53*C – the threshold after which schools must close. Yet when temperatures fell to -50*C in November, the kids attended classes as normal. That qualifies as a no-excuses environment.

 

There are Chinese tourists taking the bath in near-by river ...

Honestly I don't know what the temperature was, but the wife (ex) & I were caught in a blizzard up in the Yukon Territory one fine February day. 'White-out' conditions. I kinda kept having visions of us found in our truck the next day all frozen to death. But I never said anything to her, but we could tell we were both pretty darn scared. I just made sure we were on the road best I could and of course slowed to a crawl, and the blizzard passed. Thank goodness for FORD trucks.  First On Race Day !

Advice to others- don't go driving down empty roads in empty Northern places in the middle of winter, haha

Driving in such permafrost is dangerous indeed. Stay home or walk short distances, only ....

 

Imagine, you are working there... -50*C and all classes are a 'go' ...surprise

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
