Stan Aizin - Transition to a Resource Based Economy - JF's Centennial Event

At 08:54:
[The] first wave of new specialists will be science promoters and educators that will work to inspire more people to [i]enjoin new educational programs.[/i]

Stan does seem to say "enjoin" but the definition I found of this was to order, command, urge...
I noticed Stan does skip some words and makes the occasional mistake, so I'm wondering if "join" was what he meant there and if it captures a better meaning. At least, it seems a better fit to me.

People will peruse scientific knowledge in multiple areas

I rather hear pursue here! Can someone check?

1. I agree the word spoken is "enjoin" and per below yes the definition is "to urge" but also to set "an attitude" (in this case to not just join but to embrace new educational programs), so I think it is OK and the word is used as intended.


  1. - instruct or urge (someone) to do something.

  2. - prescribe (an action or attitude) to be performed or adopted.

2. Yikes! A typo slipped past FR! Yes the correct word is "pursue" and I just changed it in the English master. Can you adjust your Portuguese copy?
Also @Sue: since Spanish is the only other language showing in progress, please make this correction also.
