Walter Campus, it will be built on 20 acres of land donated by Mr. Walter.The agreement for the establishment of the campus was signed at the Ballards Valley Estates on June 8. In attendance were Minister of Education and Youth, Maxine Henry-Wilson; Custos of St. Mary, A.A. ‘Bobby’ Pottinger; Mayor of Port Maria, Councillor Robert Montague; ProVice Chancellor of the University of Technology, Dr. Blossom O’Meally-Nelson; and President of UTech, Dr. Errol Morrison.Signing on behalf of the University was Dr. Morrison, while Mr. Walter signed on behalf of the Ballards Valley Estates.In his address, Mr. Walter said his decision to donate the land for the campus came as a result of encouragement he received from his daughter, and to realise his dream of witnessing the establishment of a tertiary institution in St. Mary to train the people of the parish in the skills needed to stimulate social and economic development.Mr. Walter said he was not only confident that the institution would fulfil the role it is expected to play in St. Mary, but it would also be a catalyst for the development of the wider Jamaican society.Delivering the keynote address, Mrs. Henry Wilson expressed gratitude to Mr. Walter for his kind gesture and encouraged other Jamaicans to make meaningful contribution to the education system, to do likewise.She noted that there was a high level of correlation between endowments and other contributions received by tertiary institutions worldwide and the quality of education and training they delivered, adding that the initiative taken by the Walter family to donate the land for the building of the campus was an indication of the confidence they have in Jamaica and its people.The Minister said the education system must enable the people to acquire the knowledge and the skills necessary to achieve nation building, rather than just making the citizens satisfied with copying what other people did in their countries.She explained that the challenge facing universities and other training institutions around the world was the need for them to use technology to develop knowledge, and produce information for the advancement of society.Expressing confidence that UTech would use the campus to promote growth and development in St. Mary, she exhorted the university to use the donation by the Walter family to continue to give the best education to Jamaicans.

The purpose of FEJS is to create a network for young journalists, to educate journalists, to spread knowledge about the different European cultures and to give the participants both a personal and professional experience.The topic of this year’s AC is ‘Imagine Europe: The remainder of the European Dream beyond the economic markets – is there a European society of culture, values, narratives and solidarity?’ The Dutch Organising Committee (OC) wants to portray a broad picture of the non‐economic Europe. Now that Barroso, Verhofstadt and Van Rompuy are daydreaming out loud about a European federation, they want to offer the young journalists sufficient and in‐depth insights into that other Europe, the one of the narratives and diversity. They have invited about 20 Dutch and international high profiled speakers, to give lectures and workshops and to participate in debates and a panel discussion. Subjects which they will discuss are, among others:Until where do the borders of Eastern Europe reach in terms of culture, geography, religion, linguistics and political values?Does a common European culture actually exist or is there even a creatable esprit européen, and if not, is that amiss?Should Europe have its own army, be upfront globally in terms of environment policy or human rights, by means of soft power?What does the art of painting tell us about Europe?What is the status of active European citizenship?ProgrammeThursday is the day of arrival and in the evening there will be the traditional presentation of the countries’ delegations. On Friday, Evens Foundation, the OC and the board of FEJS will present themselves, followed by a series of lectures, a poetic intermezzo and a tour through Utrecht.

A camera of your own is required.European arts – Learn about the European arts from an art historian and critic, and use his opinions and views for your own essay in one of the main museums in Amsterdam.Blogging for Café Babel – If there’s one website that knows all about Europe and its languages, it is Café Babel. Two of their editors will train you in the art of blogging, and you will write a piece of your own – a selection will be published. Most probably supported by Monica Sassatelli, writer about European narratives.Debate and speech training – A speech and debate expert will train you in the morning in the techniques and theories of his profession, and after some exercises, the group will split up into a debate and a speech group. The topics will be current European affairs, and the debate final will be held the next day, in front of all the attendants, and the winning speech will be performed again as well.Investigative journalism and storytelling – Journalists and experts will show different investigation techniques like searching databases, searching archives and using social media. And how do make such a tough article readable? By using storytelling.Sunday brings one panel discussion, with academics and politicians, followed by another series of lectures and a cultural happening.On Monday, they will head towards Amsterdam for an excursion, with many options; visiting NRC Handelsblad, the European Cultural Foundation, the museums, the concert hall, etc. Tuesday might be the day of departure, but they highly recommend you to stay for another day at your own cost to experience the holiday of Queensday.EligibilityThe congress is aimed at European students of journalism, media and communication, as well as young professionals.ApplicationThe application form is AVAILABLE HERE. All application forms must be filled in online before 24 February 2013.

Auburn needs to replace anchor on offensive line

Auburn needs to replace anchor on offensive line

first_imgAUBURN – The ever present Reese Dismukes will need to be replaced in the fall as the Auburn offensive line loses its anchor.Auburn has several candidates to take over the helm at center but it’ll take more than skill to fill the void left by Dismukes, whose leadership was as valuable as his play.Austin Golson and Xavier Dampeer are splitting reps at center to open spring, with Deon Mix behind them.There is some additional shuffling up front as Patrick Miller and Chad Slade depart and Alex Kozan returns from injury.Departed: Reese Dismukes, Patrick Miller, Chad SladeReady for Spring: Will Adams, junior; Shon Coleman, junior; Xavier Dampeer, senior; Devonte Danzey, senior; Avery Young, junior; Alex Kozan, junior; Austin Golson, junior; Deon Mix, sophomore; Jordan Diamond, junior; Bailey Sharp, freshman; Tyler Carr, freshman; Robert Leff, junior; Braden Smith, sophomore;Coming in the fall: Marquel Harrell, Mike Horton, Kaleb KimOutlook: Replacing Dismukes is not going to be easy, though having Golson, who started at guard and tackle for Ole Miss, goes a long way.Auburn had Golson working at center as he sat out last season after transferring and Dampeer served as the backup to the Rimington Trophy winner.Shon Coleman and Avery Young should be considered locks to stay at the tackle positions, with spring serving little purpose for them other than development.Guard is where there is more potential for change as longtime starter Slade could be replaced by sophomore Braden Smith.Devonte Danzey opens spring as the starter on the left side, though Kozan, while limited in the spring, could compete for his old job in the fall.It puts Auburn in a similar position to a year ago, when the coaches felt they had six starters for five spots coming out of spring, then Kozan’s offseason back injury led to Young moving to guard to start the season.True freshmen Bailey Sharp and Tyler Carr will get exposed to the rigors of college football as early enrollees but should not be considered anything more than developmental this year, as Auburn is quite well stocked up front and few linemen play in their first year.Auburn is not going to abandon the running game by any stretch, but the line will likely be working a lot more on pass protection with Jeremy Johnson expected to be sitting in the pocket far more than Nick Marshall.Mix, Will Adams, Jordan Diamond and Robert Leff will fill out the depth chart along with the loser of the battle at center, which is the focus of spring practice.Not only finding the new center, but having him build cohesion with his linemates and Johnson, is one of the biggest personnel goals of the next five weeks.last_img read more

Polite Meetings are a Waste of Time

Polite Meetings are a Waste of Time

first_imgPoorly run, ineffective meetings frustrate everyone except the people running them. Recently, I interviewed Robert Herbold, former chief operating officer of Microsoft and author of “What’s Holding You Back.” Bob’s quiet, gentlemanly tone shifted toward disdain when I brought up wasting time in poorly run meetings. I loved hearing him explain, “Many meetings are useless religious ceremonies controlled by highly organized, meaningless ritual after meaningless ritual.” Effective structure: I asked Bob how he ran meetings and he mentioned Bill Gates’ method at Microsoft. Have short agendas. Leave plenty of room for discussion. In general, 60% of meeting time should be left for discussion. It was surprising to me that Bob, a self-described math geek, loves “wide open” meetings. Bill G, as Bob referred to him, begins all meetings with the “low-lights.” Start with problems. Start where most people end. Bob explained that most meetings begin with the “high lights” that everyone already knows. Tragically, real discussions that address real issues are crammed into the last few minutes. Key ingredient: I interrupted Bob and asked him how meetings with short agendas and long discussions accomplished anything. He said it’s the chairperson’s job to keep everyone focused on real problems and high potential opportunities. The chairperson: Explains where he expects participants to focus their attention. They create the sandbox where everyone plays. Creates a culture where confrontation is welcomed and expected. The chairperson says things like, “How is this relevant to our current discussion.” They keep everyone playing in the same sandbox. Confronts by saying things like, “Times up, let’s do something.” A timely ending is as important as the proper beginning. Finally, this polite gentleman explained that “polite meetings” are most likely an unnecessary waste of time. Great meetings begin with the “bad” stuff, give room for creative tension, and result in making things happen. What techniques have you used to create effective meetings?last_img read more

Lokpal Bill fiasco: BJP delegation meets President, urges to reconvene Parliament session

Lokpal Bill fiasco: BJP delegation meets President, urges to reconvene Parliament session

first_imgA delegation of senior BJP leaders submitted a memorandum to President Pratibha Patil on Thursday demanding reconvening of Parliament session to facilitate voting on Lokpal Bill.The BJP leaders’ meeting with the President comes exactly a week after the Rajya Sabha Chairman, Vice-President Hamid Ansari, adjourned the House sine die without voting on the controversial Lokpal Bill amidst repeated disruption even as the debate over it was yet to be over.After the midnight drama in the Rajya Sabha on the last day of the extended winter session, the BJP leaders met the President to protest the manner in which the session ended without voting over the Bill.Veteran leader L.K. Advani, who headed the delegation, said after the meeting: “We expect intervention from the President on what had happened in the Rajya Sabha during the Lokpal debate.”The Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Arun Jaitley, said, “There has been subversion of parliamentary institution. For the first time the government used a contrived disturbance to stop the Bill being put to vote. The President should suggest some ways to ensure that parliamentary norms are not diluted. The government should convene another session and ensure that voting takes place.””When such a breakdown of constitutional machinery takes place, the President must act as the protector of Constitution. The President could advise the government to reconvene the session and immediately take a vote,” Jaitley said.He had earlier termed the uproar in the Rajya Sabha on the last day of its winter session as “flee-dom at midnight” and said it was a murder of democracy.The BJP delegation comprised party president Nitin Gadkari, Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and various other top leaders. The party has also been planning a weeklong agitation across the country over the issue.- With Headlines Today inputsadvertisementlast_img read more
