Bennington College,Dr Mariko Silver has been selected as the 10th president of Bennington College. A leading educational, public policy, and international strategist, she has held prominent roles at Columbia University, at Arizona State University, in the administration of Arizona’s governor Janet Napolitano, and in the Obama administration. She will succeed Elizabeth Coleman, Bennington’s president for 25 years, who retires this month.‘Mariko Silver embodies a new model for the American college president’someone who sees the world not as a set of givens but as a collection of resources to be harnessed,’said Alan Kornberg ‘74, chairman of the Bennington College Board of Trustees. ‘She has an extraordinary intellectual and imaginative vitality, an outstanding track record, and a deep commitment to the College’s pedagogic traditions and values. Dr. Silver’s appointment also signals Bennington’s ambitions to expand the influence of the College’s founding ideals and contemporary practices in a world that is rapidly changing, that is simultaneously fragmented and interconnected, and that is, in every dimension, increasingly complex and global.’‘I am thrilled and honored to lead Bennington, one of the nation’s most innovative liberal arts colleges,’Silver said. ‘Bennington stands as a unique and essential voice in the higher education landscape. In its emphasis on the essential role of creativity throughout the curriculum, its developing focus on public service, its commitment to the teacher-practitioner model, and through its most fundamental organizational design element, which places students’and graduates’at the center of what matters, Bennington is distinctly positioned to engage head-on many of the challenges and opportunities facing higher education in the coming decade.’Silver comes to Bennington from Arizona State University (ASU), where, as senior advisor to President Michael Crow, she was a key strategist in what Newsweek called ‘one of the most radical redesigns in higher learning since the origins of the modern university.’She designed and led campus, community, and international initiatives focused on student engagement and accomplishment, on cutting-edge science, and on economic development. Silver also served as Professor of Practice in ASU’s School of Politics and Global Studies and established international research and teaching partnerships, including the international University Design Consortium.‘Mariko Silver’s ability to build programs and projects in collaboration with faculty, university leadership, and diverse community stakeholders is extraordinary,’said ASU President Michael Crow. ‘Both Bennington and ASU, while obviously of different institutional scale, place extraordinary value on innovative institutional architecture, push pedagogical boundaries in service of the best educational experience for students, and pursue the best teaching and thought leadership outcomes to improve the global trajectory. Strategic, visionary, collaborative, Mariko is an innovative thinker steeped in the challenges and opportunities for organizational change in higher education and an outstanding choice to lead Bennington into the future.’Silver served in the Obama administration as Acting Assistant Secretary for International Affairs and Deputy Assistant Secretary for International Policy of the US Department of Homeland Security where she created the first department-wide international strategy, managed the Department’s international engagements, and co-developed a global initiative to enhance aviation security. Prior to that, she served as Policy Advisor to Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano, with responsibility for the state’s public and private universities, community colleges, and vocational institutions; the Arizona Department of Commerce; and Science Foundation Arizona. In these capacities she has worked with multiple communities and constituencies around the world and very close to home.”Whether balancing the needs of diverse communities, championing projects that serve both public and private needs, or understanding the role that education, science, and technology play in economic development, Mariko Silver has the ability to develop and advance big ideas,’said US Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.Silver holds a BA in History from Yale University, an MSc in Science and Technology Policy from the University of Sussex (UK), and a PhD in Economic Geography from the University of California at Los Angeles. She and her husband, musician Thom Loubet, have one child.
Third graders at Rosehill Elementary School on Wednesday served up 25-cent cups of lemonade as the culmination of a unit on economics — and helped a good cause in the processThe third graders hosted the school’s 5th annual Alex’s Lemonade Stand — associated with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, an organization started by parents who lost a daughter to childhood cancer. The foundation raises money and awareness for childhood cancer research and treatment. Assistant Principal Dustin Springer said the third grade teachers are creative with approaches to curriculum in an effort to find ways to involve philanthropy.“[The teachers] have such huge hearts,” Springer said. “I think when they have an opportunity to tie their economics lesson into being able to give back — and especially to give back to something like childhood cancer — they were all for it. They jumped on it.”Meghan Spalding, one of the three third grade teachers at the school, said the students created their own businesses last week and tried to make as much money as possible by selling products to second graders. The conversation shifted this week to businesses with the sole intention of helping others, not making money: foundations and nonprofits like Alex’s Lemonade Stand.There were many jobs available to the students including lemonade pourer.Students ran the lemonade stand from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and again from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., and raised $559.36 yesterday. Spalding said the students from the three classes had shifts, and were assigned one of the following jobs: pourer, money handler, photographer, runner and host. Other students made greeting cards and decorations for children currently at Children’s Mercy Hospital, she said.Additionally, the students and their families donated the cups and lemonade for the stand. Spalding said this helps show the kids that when everyone comes together for a greater purpose than yourself, “something so much bigger can be accomplished.” Acts of kindness intended for others, and not just focusing on yourself, was one of the main lessons of the lemonade stand, she said.“The organization is something that the kids really connect to, because Alex was their age when she passed away,” Spalding said. “She started lemonade stands and decided she wanted to give the money to hospitals so other kids didn’t have to be sick like her, and it really resonates with the third graders.”
Women hope to finalize roster at Jack’s Open Derek WetmoreOctober 20, 2010Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintIn whatâÄôs becoming a weekly battle, the womenâÄôs cross country team is searching for resolution to its roster. The fourth annual JackâÄôs Co-Ed Run will help put rest to that indecision, presumably for the remainder of the season. The team can have nine runners at the Big Ten Championships on Halloween, and head coach Gary Wilson said they are set on eight. SaturdayâÄôs meet in Falcon Heights will help determine who receives that final spot. The JackâÄôs Run is named after longtime team equipment manager Jack Johnson, who died of liver cancer in February 2006. Upon his death, Johnson donated $25,000 to endow a scholarship in his name. One-third of the proceeds from the weekendâÄôs meet go to fund that scholarship. The remaining money is split between the Angel Foundation of Minnesota âÄî which supports cancer patients and their families âÄî and the Tesfa Foundation, supporting rape victims in Ethiopia. As for the GophersâÄô roster situation, the eight runners with secured spots will have the weekend off. Among those competing for the final spot are Claire Rindo, Maggie Bollig, Kathryn Ritter, Katie Salvatore, Kelly Wilson, Katie Dyson and Cassy Opitz. Wilson said it may be RindoâÄôs spot to lose after she impressed coaches with her progression following a two-meet absence. Those arenâÄôt the only candidates for the final spot, Wilson said, but they are the ones in the best position based on previous meets. The problem with the run-off âÄî and the several supposed run-offs in the past âÄî is that it isnâÄôt just a matter of who finishes first one day. Coaches said they look at a composite of the last few races and focus on how a runner is progressing recently. The winner of the final roster spot for the Big Ten championships may well not be the runner who finishes first at JackâÄôs run. SaturdayâÄôs meet isnâÄôt the only race in memoriam of Johnson, a former close friend of WilsonâÄôs. There is also a race in the Griak Invitational and an indoor meet carrying his namesake. Johnson, who started at the University in 1961 and worked here for nearly 40 years, didnâÄôt have much remaining family when he contracted the disease, Wilson said. âÄúWhat we try to do is just honor him with JackâÄôs run and the other [races],âÄù Wilson said. âÄúHe loved the team. This team was like his family.âÄù Related: – U students welcome to compete in cross country meet (blog)
The car and passenger ferry MS Ostfriesland, owned by AG EMS, was fuelled with liquefied natural gas for the first time ever in Bremerhaven.The initial fuelling of the approximately 94 m long Borkum ferry was conducted by Bomin Linde LNG.After completing safety checks, 40 cubic metres of the chilled gas were transferred into the Borkum ferry’s tank within a short period of time, Bomin Linde LNG said in a statement.AG EMS Managing Director Bernard Brons said that this first activity will bring the company closer to starting scheduled LNG operations of the MS Ostfriesland in June.After the successful initial fuelling, the passenger ferry which was retrofitted to run on LNG by Brennund Verformtechnik Bremen, will need to perform several dry runs and marine tests during the next weeks.By the middle of the year, the first LNG vessel under German flag can initiate its daily service between Emden and the North Sea island of Borkum, the statement said.According to the statement, by using LNG the MS Ostfriesland will save more than one million litres of marine gas oil per year.

Creating a ‘virtual railway’ allows signal locations to be optimised with minimal disruption to traffic, simultaneously reducing costs and producing better results,Ted Stephens, Chris Angus and John Bryant, Bentley Professional ServicesAN EFFECTIVE signalling system must bring together a number of different elements: electrical and electronic components, software and logic, the signal layout, and the interactions with drivers.Years of study and analysis of hardware and logic have delivered very reliable signalling equipment. More recently, events such as the 1999 collision at Ladbroke Grove in west London have highlighted the need to focus on signal location, sighting distances and the way in which signals are interpreted by drivers. This is challenging, as traditional techniques for choosing the positions of signals have become harder to use. Safety regulations make it difficult for staff to gain access to the track, and increasing traffic means operators wish to minimise disruption. Route learning is difficult because a new layout cannot be driven until it is completed, and even then it may not be possible for a driver to pass along every possible route. Virtual railway modelThe rail industry has thus had to devise new ways of establishing signal sighting, and communicate final designs to train drivers. An approach which has been used on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, Manchester South project and the current Portsmouth resignalling uses a three-dimensional computer model of the railway, which can be used to place signals by parametric design rules and then perform objective assessment of sighting, aiding subjective assessment within the real environment. The models are generally based on a number of datasets. A static element consists of the terrain, buildings and earthworks, which rarely change. There is also a semi-static model, comprising the rails, overhead line and other features that can be updated on an intermittent basis, requiring some data changes. Finally, there is a dynamic model, which holds the signals themselves and is automatically updated by the signal-sighting software as each signal is placed and design decisions evolve.These elements combine to form a complete model of the railway, which can be analysed and viewed at will. The output can be generated in a variety of forms depending on the user’s needs, including drawings for design engineers wire line diagrams, static images and animations for external users and interactive viewers for subjective assessment.The most important feature is that this should be a seamless process, using a single data model generally known as a virtual railway. This requires a variety of software components: a three-dimensional string modeller for terrain, track geometry, earthworks and overhead line a solid modeller for structures and buildings a rendering engine to create high-quality still images and animations a signal placement and sighting tool a viewer for quick visual assessment of the design a simulation system for communicating the design to the drivers. All of these components should work from a single data source to guarantee precision and currency of information. The models are built in a manner that simplifies the change process, but there is still the problem of obtaining all the data needed to build the models. A wide variety of sources can be tapped, depending on the precision required.It is reasonable to use data from a national mapping agency as the basis for the terrain model. While this has known limits of precision, it has the advantage of being available for the whole rail network. It can be used for an objective analysis of signal sighting if suitable tolerances are allowed. Where greater precision is required, more detailed data can be obtained using aerial or ground surveys.Overhead electrification models can be constructed from as-built records or from on-train measurement systems, and the shapes of tunnels and bridges can be established from gauging records or scanning surveys. Information on the existing signalling layouts is generally derived from records or from survey data.Sighting requirementsA number of different software tools are used to meet the signal-sighting requirements, including placing signals, performing calculations, creating ‘flight lines’ for the driver’s eye position as the train moves along the routes, and interaction with the viewer. The placement tool allows the designer to create signal objects in the 3D model and configure them. The tool allocates an identity, composes the signal from components, places the signal in the model, and sets signal direction and dip. Once these have all been assigned, the signal can be placed into the model for immediate viewing.The user can change the signal or any of its attributes at will, immediately seeing the effect in the viewer. It is simple to adjust the placing of the signal to avoid any problems such as read-through or obstruction by other equipment.The performance calculations tool allows the user to perform intervisibility calculations based on the location and direction of signals, obstructions, and the driver’s eye flight line. The tool creates rays for line of sight, calculates obstructions and the 7 sec and 4 sec positions required for first glimpse and continuous sighting. It can also identify possible read-through locations, establish a reserved signal volume, and create signal-sighting forms. The line-of-sight calculations take into account the conicity of the signal lamp lens and the viewing angle for the driver’s eye, constrained by the viewing angle of the cab window. An obstruction calculation is performed for features rising from the terrain (typically buildings and masts) or dropping from above the line of sight (bridges, tunnels and electrification). The view of each lamp within each signal is checked for each point along the flight line for the driver’s eye, typically every 10 m.Lines showing the rays from the signal to the driver’s eye position are generated in 3D and can be viewed in plan or wire-line perspective. Based on the 3D rays, a reserved volume can be established for the signal, into which no obstruction can be placed without reference to the signalling engineer. The final product of this process is the signal-sighting form, with the basic details for the signal filled in automatically. Rendering engineIn normal operation, the static model of the surrounding buildings and the semi-static model for track and overhead equipment are read into the viewer, and the signal design model is then passed dynamically. As signals are created, modified, or deleted in the 3D model, the interactive view is automatically updated.Passing the data to a full rendering engine can create still images and animation. A ray-tracing functionality allows the user to generate images with shadow and reflectance, producing realistic images which are suitable for presentations to regulatory authorities and the public, as opposed to the engineering-assessment quality output from the interactive viewer. The downside of this is the computing power required. Each frame of an animation can take a minute to generate, and a smooth animation requires a minimum of 25 frames per second a 30 sec animation sequence can take many hours to generate, and any changes will usually require a re-run of the animation. So although this method does not lend itself to the interactive assessment of signals, it is ideal for display of the completed work.High-quality still images can be generated using the rendering engine. It is possible to include shadow, reflectance, fog, cloud, bright sunlight, and many other characteristics. Each of these added features requires additional computing time, but a very complex still image will only require a few minutes to render, rather than hours.One of the key features of this approach is the speed with which it is possible to achieve results. The interactive viewer allows the immediate display of anything that has been built to date, and it is possible to start building models around a local area of interest and then to expand this at will, unlike animation where the modelling of the whole project must be completed before any animation can occur.The data is generated in an industry-standard format widely used for visualisation and simulation systems, so it is possible to upload the models into a simulator for route familiarisation. Alternatively, the interactive viewer can be used in stand-alone mode, which allows the user to select various train paths and set the signals as required. Either approach builds on the same base dataset used for the design of the signals, without the need to reconstruct the data in a new system. The benefits of this approach are many. From a practical and safety perspective, it will reduce the number of site visits, and thus possessions, required and the need for staff to go onto the track. From a quality assurance point of view, this approach gives a continuous and traceable source for the data on which any decisions are based, helping to eliminate the possibility of out-of-date information being used.From the cost side, the benefits are substantial not only in time saved by reduced site visits (though these will still be necessary to confirm that the computer model is correct), but also from reduced reworking as most of the location problems will have been resolved during the design phase. This approach to signal sighting has proven to be a great success. For the first time it is possible to link the design process and objective analysis with the subjective analysis and route learning available through the interactive viewer.

Christmas Fruit Cake – Have you soaked your fruits yet?By: Shakira ThomasWho is baking this Christmas? I know all the yearly bakers already have their containers of mixed fruits soaking and ready for the biggest baking time of the year. Good stuff!If you didn’t know, soaking your mixed fruits in advance before baking your Christmas fruit cake is the key to that moist, rich and tasty texture. The flour, sugar and other ingredients are just props; it’s really the fruits and nuts that are the star of this delight.Can you remember that time you had the best Christmas cake ever and the first bite brought happy tears to your eyes? You remember thinking that there must be a secret ingredient in this Christmas fruitcake? Well I’m here to tell you that the secret is fruit soaking in advance. When you soak the mixed fruits it gives you that rich, moist texture with bursting flavors.There are different timelines you can choose to soak your mixed fruits, I will inform you of the different ways but the rule of thumb is the longer you soak the fruits the better the taste. It’s like the wine aging concept the older the wine the better the taste, well it’s the same for soaking your mixed fruits, the longer you soak your mixed fruits in alcohol the better the taste of your Christmas fruit cake. Yearly bakers start to soak their mixed fruits the beginning of the year and bake first week in December and feed the cakes with alcohol once a week up to Christmas. Some say the traditional way is to soak fruits three months before Christmas that would be first/second week of September and then bake approximately five weeks before Christmas. The easiest timeline is to soaking your mixed fruits overnight just three-four weeks before Christmas, bake the next day and brush alcohol once a week until Christmas. This is probably the best option for busy moms on the go. The key here is to give your fruits adequate time to marinate in alcohol to get that rich, scrumptious taste you want.If you are planning on baking this year for the first time, have no fear we will be your guide to the process. We have the same recipe and method that ‘Grandma’ and ‘Aunt Mae’ used when you were a child, so you’re in good hands. To start the baking process right, I want you to first get rid of the fear that baking a Christmas fruit cake is hard. It’s really easy; once you have good directions (we got you!) and all the ingredients the process is effortless.This week we will start with the simplest step in the process, and that is to soak your mixed fruits.Items you will need:FruitsGlazed cherry – 100gApricot – 120gDate – 180gPrune – 100gCranberry – 100gFig – 50gRaisins:Black current – 150gRaisin – 100gSultana – 150gNuts:Almond – 50gWalnut – 50gCashew – 50gOther:Brandy: 700ml (sherry, whisky or dark rum)Orange zest of 1 large orangeEquipment:Large glass bowl with lid or large glass jar with air-tight lidSpatula/Wooden serving spoonChopping boardSharp knifeDirection made simple:Chop all the fruits and nuts in bite size pieces. It will increase the total amount of fruits present in your cake. This will ensure that fruits and nuts are in every bite of your cake.Place the chopped fruits and nuts in the clean and dry containers (as listed above) and pour the brandy (or alcohol of your choice) over the fruits. Make sure fruits are completely covered with the liquid.Stir gently with the wooden spoon and cover with the lid. The glass container should be air tight.Place the container in a dry and dark place, may be in your kitchen cupboard.Stir (or shake) the fruit mix with a wooden spatula/spoon on each day or at least on alternate day until the baking day.How easy was that?!Cooking tips:It’s best to use a glass container, as alcohol could have a reaction to other types of material.Depending on the sizes of the fruits, cut is quarters and halves. The bigger pieces of fruits cut in quarters, and the smaller cut in halves.Look out for the follow-up article on this topic – closer to baking time. I will give you the list of items, best brands you need to shop for your cake; in the meantime get those fruits soaking.Shakira Thomas is the creator and founder of Caribbeanchick.com.

Share Tweet Prime Minister Dr. Denzil L. Douglas in introducing the motion to acquire what has become known as the ‘Stanford building at the airport” said Cabinet had given its full support for the action.BASSETERRE, St. Kitts, – Parliament has given the St. Kitts and Nevis government the green light to acquire the building constructed by the disgraced United States billionaire, Allan Stanford, to house the headquarters of his now defunct Caribbean Star Airlines.The building is situated just outside the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport and the authorities said the land inside the airport was earlier repossessed for non-performance with a private jet terminal now being constructed there.Prime Minister Dr. Denzil L. Douglas in introducing the motion to acquire what has become known as the ‘Stanford building at the airport” said Cabinet had given its full support for the action.Tourism and International Transport Minister Richard Skerritt said it was a “very very important and very timely, as the government seeks to bring that very important property into a more productive use going forward and acquire an asset that will become increasingly valuable over the coming years.”Skerritt told legislators that the Stanford Agreement dating back to February 28, 2003 had provided for the transfer of that particular parcel of land to the Stanford Company, based on a promise to facilitate Stanford’s relocation of a major corporation to St. Kitts.Skerritt said that soon after joining the government he was “one of those who agitated quite vigorously to bring that agreement to termination because of non-performance.“Mr. Speaker, this government is a very patient and a very understanding government and the government took a great deal of deliberation, a great deal of time before declaring that agreement null and void, but by doing so, it saved the Government from delivering on six acres of land inside of the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport which today, is being developed practically the very same piece of land that we took back from the Stanford Company back then.“The government did not give title to the land inside, because of non-performance. So that the very land inside, which technically had been sold, today is being developed by SCASPA in partnership with a private investor in what will become one of the top private jet terminals in the western world by the time it opens around the end of the first quarter next year,” he said.“It is very valuable to this country and I think in credit to Mr. Stanford, he really produced an outstanding, aesthetically pleasing, and significantly valuable building on the site which as of now Mr Speaker, becomes the property of this government,” Skerritt said.Stanford, who was convicted of orchestrating and concealing a US$7 billion Ponzi scheme involving his Antigua-based Stanford International Bank (SIB) in March, is serving a 110-year sentence at a US federal prison.

Robert Lopez Mendy makes two goals to help Kaya Iloilo notch a clear 4-0 victory over Global Cebu on Wednesday. MANILA – Kaya Iloilo tallied its first win against Global Cebu in the 2018 Philippines Football League after a 4-0 domination on Wednesday at the Philippine Football Federation Training Center in Carmona, Cavite.Robert Lopez Mendy fired two goals while Ilonggo Jovin Bedic and Antonio Ugarte added a conversion each, avenging a 1-3 loss to Global on May 23.“We really prepared for this match because Global is the only team we haven’t beaten this season,” said Kaya head coach Noel Marcaida. “Our objective also this season is to finish strong and hold on to the second spot until the end.”After struggling with attempts in the first 45 minutes, Kaya finally took the advantage in the 54th minute on a penalty kick by Lopez Mendy. He followed this up with another conversion 11 minutes later to make a 2-0 advantage. With Global unable to find its mark, Kaya widened the lead further with Ugarte scoring from the bottom left corner in the 83rd minute followed by Bedic converting from the side in the 90th minute.The Kaya-Global match was supposed to be held at the lloilo Sports Complex in Iloilo City but the Cebu team requested that it be held in Carmona instead.The two teams will meet again on Saturday at the Iloilo Sports Complex.“Mas OK sana kung iyong game namin was held at our home court but it does not matter naman,” said Kaya’s Audie Menzi. “Ang importante naman is uuwi kaming panalo sa Iloilo.”Kaya is currently on second place in the standings with 39 points on 12 wins, six draws and three losses while Global is at the tail-end with 5 points on one win, two draw and 15 losses./PN
