Brock prof receives international award for innovative teaching

Brock University Professor David Hutchison is one of just five Canadian university professors in 2016 to receive one of the country’s most significant awards for innovative teaching.Hutchison’s inventive approach to teaching through project-based learning earned him a Brightspace Innovation Award in Teaching and Learning from the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, the same organization that awards the prestigious 3M Teaching Fellowship. He is the first Brock professor to receive the Brightspace award.Hutchison, Director of Brock University’s Centre for Digital Humanities and Professor in the Department of Teacher Education, said he’s honoured by the recognition and credits the cross-faculty support he has had at Brock when it comes to innovative teaching.Brock is really supportive of experimentation and has supports for innovative teaching and also collaboration.“Brock is really supportive of experimentation and has supports for innovative teaching and also collaboration,” he said.“What’s unique about what I’m doing is that I’m a certified project manager. I apply project management skills to my work related to project-based learning.”Hutchison said project-based learning is a collaborative approach that focuses on transferable learning skills such as problem-solving and critical thinking.“Project-based learning empowers learners to collaborate in teams — mentored by their teachers — as they research real-world questions, pose solutions to real-world problems and design real-world products,” he explained.“Through project-based learning, students take on ownership of collaborative projects they undertake as a team. They develop skills they can use well beyond the project in other courses and throughout their careers.”Hutchison, who is currently a Chancellor’s Chair for Teaching Excellence grant holder, is spearheading the new Brock University Design Studio (BUDS). BUDS brings teams of students together from different Brock programs to work on projects such as the IBM-sponsored Arduino rover project.Hutchison is director of Brock’s Interactive Arts and Science program, which offers a number of project-based courses and this fall is launching a new second-year class called Foundations of Project Management.Hutchison’s innovative teaching has been recognized at Brock. He was awarded the 2013 Faculty of Education Teaching Award.Neil McCartney, Brock’s Provost and Vice-President Academic, said the University is proud to see the Brightspace award go to such a deserving recipient in Hutchison.“David’s approach is an excellent reflection of the innovative attitudes that his Brock colleagues bring to teaching and learning,” said McCartney. “These are the people who are taking Brock to the next level of leadership in this area.”Hutchison is one of five international post-secondary educators being recognized with the Brightspace award.“These five exceptional educators are creative leaders who are passionate about providing outstanding learning experiences, opportunities and environments,” said John Baker, president and CEO of Brightspace.He added they reflect the spirit and values of Brightspace by supporting and encouraging innovate teaching and learning.“These five educators demonstrate the impact and importance of creativity on learning. Each of these award winners has had a measurable and lasting impact on learners through unique and innovative approaches to teaching and learning,“ said STLHE president Robert Lapp. “STLHE is proud to partner with Brightspace to encourage and support student-centered values and approaches to learning.”The winners will be recognized at the 2016 STLHE Annual Conference, June 21-24 in London, Ont. and at FUSION, Brightspace’s Global Conference, July 22-26 in Orlando, Fla.Each of the five winners will receive a two-year membership in STLHE as well as $2,200 toward travel and registration costs for both STLHE’s Annual Conference and FUSION.

EA and Bioware notify gamers their information was stolen a week after

first_imgLast week, the NeverWinter Nights forums were hacked, with the attackers making off with usernames, passwords, and birth-dates. Bioware promptly locked down the forum as soon as they discovered the hack, and said they were taking steps to notify the impacted users. Today, a number of gamers reported they finally got those notifications from EA, and were advised to change their passwords: a full week after the original breach.The story re-appeared in the news at a number of sites, claiming to be the latest in a string of security breaches at gaming companies, but in fact it’s taken EA a week to notify members of the NWN forums that their information had been stolen. Additionally, EA noted that their real names, phone numbers, NeverWinter Nights CD keys, and possibly mailing addresses were lost along with the previously disclosed birth-dates and passwords.AdChoices广告EA and Bioware reiterated that no financial information was stored in the forums, so the attackers wouldn’t have been able to obtain credit card numbers or social security numbers. Still, that’s likely no consolation to users who may be active NeverWinter Nights players – especially if their CD key suddenly turns up in use by someone else.As of now, no large hacker groups have taken credit for the attack. Some immediately pointed to LulzSec as the culprit, given their history of breaking into the networks of video game companies, but LulzSec for their part hasn’t mentioned the hack at all.The bigger question however is why did it take EA a week to notify the affected users that their data had been lost? Bioware even confirmed that the attack took place the day afterward, and in their statement they said they had already notified all of the affected users. Now it seems those notifications never went out.Read more at EAlast_img read more

Heritage Victoria gives green light for Evangelismos Church restoration

first_imgProfessor Marinis Pirpiris announced earlier this week that Heritage Victoria has granted the Greek Community of Melbourne (GCM) a permit to proceed with stage one of the reinstatement of Evangelismos, and further noted that “upon the completion of stage one our church obtains the green light to operate as a place of assembly”.As Professor Pirpiris, Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria (GOCMV) Project Steering Committee member, explained, “stage one involves a major clean-up of the church consisting of removal of all the debris caused by the devastating fire [last year]; and some minor structural works are required which will ensure that the church can become a place of assemble for parishioners”. The GCM announced that it has selected as its preferred builder Merkon Constructions, a building company that has a close association with the erection of Orthodox churches. Works for stage one will commence almost immediately. Once completed, the church can operate in accordance with the relevant building guidelines and codes. Heritage Victoria is currently examining the plans that relate to stage two of the proposed rebuilding.The Board of Management of the Greek Community would like to thank the following people for their tireless efforts in obtaining the relevant permits: Constantine Moschoyiannis (Morea Architects), Peter Paras (FMG Engineering), Andrew Christoforou (McKenzie Group Consulting) & Arthur Andronas (Andronas Conservation Architecture), Chris Merkoulias (Merkon Constructions), Angela Georgalis & Alexi Costa (Moray & Agnew Lawyers). During the Lonsdale Street Greek Festival in February a further $6000 was collected in aid of the church. Fundraising efforts are continuing.

Politicians cannot seek votes in name of religion Indian SC

first_imgIndian politicians have been barred from seeking votes in the name of religion, caste or creed the Indian Supreme Court ruled on Monday in a landmark judgment, ahead of crucial assembly polls in five states. The court also ruled that seeking votes in this manner will be deemed a corrupt practice and not permissible, reports Times of India.The court’s bench said on Monday by a 4:3 majority that elections are a secular exercise and that the relationship between people and whom they worship is an individual choice. Therefore, the state is forbidden to interfere in such an activity, the court said.A 7-judge constitution bench passed the judgement in the Hindutva case after hearing arguments from various petitioners/respondents, Times of India said. The top court was examining a politically explosive question arising out of a plea filed in 1990. That questioned – Will a religious leader’s appeal to his followers to vote for a particular political party amount to electoral malpractice under Section 123 of the Representation of People Act.The court gave a wider meaning to Section 123 of the Representation of People Act to stamp out the use of religion and community affiliation from elections, the ToI report observed.Chief Justice T S Thakur, justices M B Lokur, S A Bobde and L N Rao favoured rooting out religion from election, while Justices A K Goel, U U Lalit and D Y Chandrachud were in a minority on the issue.last_img read more

Saudi Arabia to build aircraft maintenance facility in Bangladesh

first_imgPart of the Lalmonirhat airbase. Photo-UNBSaudi Arabia is keen to build aircraft repairing and maintaining facility at the abandoned airbase in Lalmonirhat of Bangladesh. The airbase was abandoned after the partition in 1947 and later Bangladesh Air Force took charge of the airstrip.Diplomatic sources said Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI) is planning to invest $5 billion in a bid to set up the aircraft repairing park there.Officials in Dhaka and Riyadh told Prothom Alo that Bangladesh appreciates the Saudi initiative and last week sent a letter to the Saudi Arabia to arrange a dialogue over the matter.At the beginning of this month (August), a diplomatic source in Riyadh said the matter was discussed during air chief marshal Masihuzzaman Serniabat’s visit to Saudi Arabia. During his tour, sources added, Masihuzzaman held meeting with top security officials of the oil rich country.Asked about the matter, Bangladesh’s ambassador to Saudi Golam Mosih told Prothom Alo that Saudi Arabia placed a proposal over establishing the facility at Lamonirhat airbase.In a statement on 11 April 2019, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said air chief marshal Masihuzzaman Serniabat had a courtesy meeting with Saudi’s Royal Armed Forces’ chief of the Saudi general staff, Fayyadh bin Hamed bin Raqed Al Ruwaili, and commander of the Royal Saudi Air Forces (RSAF) Turki bin Bandar bin Abdul Aziz.He also visited King Faisal Air Academy and Alsalam Aerospace Industries, established in 1988, according to its website, ‘to make the Kingdom self-sufficient in commercial and military aircraft maintenance, overhaul and modifications through technology transfer and the development of Saudi nationals’ while Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI) was launched in May 2017 to ‘act as a sustainable platform to provide world-class military products and services.’The Saudi authorities hinted that initially they will ink an investment agreement with Bangladesh Air Force. Following the agreement, they will gradually start the commercial activities.Last week, Bangladesh ambassador to Riyadh wrote a letter to the Saudi foreign ministry in this regard.On the matter, Bangladesh Institute of Peace and Security Studies’ (BIPSS) president retired major general Muniruzzaman said cooperation may take place with a friendly country like Saudi Arabia.“We welcome any foreign investment. But Bangladesh should be aware of any investment that is related to the security issue in a bid to avoid confrontation,” he told Prothom Alo.Muniruzzaman also said it is okay if Saudi’s investment is merely for business. But, Bangladesh should remain alert if the deal includes any military involvement, he added.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Toriqul Islam.last_img read more

uThukela encourages women to help each other

first_imguThukela District Municipality held and celebrated International Women’s Day in the Echachaza area under the global theme for 2016, which is ‘Pledge for Parity’. The aim was for individuals to take a concrete step to help achieve gender parity more quickly. This would be by pledging to help women and girls achieve their ambitions and calling for gender-balanced leadership.Various women – including political parties, community, business leaders, as well as leading educators, entrepreneurs, Omama Bamajukujuku and women in rural areas – were invited to take part in the event. International Women’s Day is the story of ordinary women as the makers of history, and is rooted in the centuries-old struggle of women emancipation and equal footing with men.The messages given at the event were mainly focused on various issues such as improvement of the portrayal of women in rural areas, the importance of education and career opportunities, the importance of women in society and their influences, and issues that affect them. WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite All women at the event were encouraged to work together and build each other in every way. “International Women’s Day is not just about highlighting the acknowledged imbalances across social, economic, cultural and political grounds, but also about celebrating the successes of women in all those spheres,” said Cllr N Sibiya. She also urged all women to work together and help each other to build their own businesses, and not to depend on hand-outs.In South Africa, we also celebrate National Women’s Day in August annually to commemorate the great women’s march of 1956, where women marched to the Union Buildings to protest against the carrying of pass books.

How It WorksStroke images from participating acute care hospitals in Maryland and Washington, D.C., are transmitted for interpretation by a CRISP-based team comprised of a stroke specialist, neuroradiologist and stroke resident. Following diagnosis, the stroke specialist collaborates with emergency physicians to triage patients and plan treatment.The images are taken using CTs installed at the regional hospitals. A DICOM-enabled edge device, integrated with a hospital server, queries the on-site picture archiving and communication system (PACS) for the CT images, caches and then transmits them through the HIE for interpretation.

Advanced methods for clot removal, notably the 2013 development of advanced suction catheters, have substantially improved patient outcomes, according to Phipps.Conversely, hemorrhagic stroke comes from the rupture of a blood vessel in the brain. Blood accumulation increases pressure, which causes blood loss to nearby tissues. Patients are treated by controlling the bleed and relieving the pressure.Symptoms alone do not define the type of stroke. The only way to determine the type — and the most effective treatment — is the accurate interpretation of brain scans, Phipps said. Many community hospitals lack the necessary diagnostic and therapeutic resources, much to the disadvantage of the stroke patient. Effective treatment must begin within six hours of symptoms, he said. “Ischemic strokes may only allow treatment for a short time. Time is brain.” The sooner the reperfusion, according to Phipps, the better the outcome.In 2015, research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) showed that more than half — and up to more than 70 percent — of patients reperfused between 4 and 4.5 hours since the onset of stroke symptoms showed good clinical outcomes after 90 days. This compared to between 20 percent and slightly more than 40 percent of patients who showed similar outcomes when reperfused between 5.5 and 6.5 hours. Improving CareIn a presentation at 2018 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference, Phipps and CRISP program manager Karan Mansukhani presented preliminary data about the operation of the CRISP-based image exchange. Over the last three years, patient transfers to the comprehensive care centers have risen from 43 in 2015, to 66 in 2016, to 91 last year. Repeat imaging studies were zero in 2015, eight in 2016 and five last year.CRISP allows the display of current images in the context of priors and other clinical data, including laboratory values. This accelerates the diagnostic process and dramatically reduces the time to treatment, Mansukhani said.“The data that we have collected so far shows that we are able to save 56 minutes on average in time to decision,” he said. “Because stroke treatment is time sensitive, getting images (and data) in front of a specialist is critical.”This point is underscored by the higher percentage of patients who score better on the “modified Rankin” score, which indicates disability due to stroke. Ninety days after the stroke, according to Mansukhani, 28 percent of patients showed a good outcome after the image exchange technology became operational. This contrasts with 20 percent of patients who showed a good outcome before the technology, he said. HIE Imaging SharingData gathered by Mansukhani and Phipps show that the HIE-enabled electronic image exchange is substantially better than image sharing that relies on physical media. Inefficiencies associated with these media, such as CDs, may lead to repeat CT studies, Mansukhani said.When establishing electronic image sharing within an HIE, they recommend leveraging “champions” within these exchanges who can ensure that the exchanges are set up and operate efficiently and effectively. To be effective, these exchanges need to work with PACS administrators and radiology technologists, said Mansukhani. “Without their hard work, our lofty goals would be beyond us.” Greg FreiherrA regional image exchange system is saving lives and reducing radiology costs in Maryland by improving the efficiency and effectiveness of diagnosing and treating stroke patients.The image exchange, part of a statewide health information exchange (HIE) called CRISP (Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients), not only accelerates the diagnosis of stroke patients, but also allows their treatment to be individualized. Further, it affords the option for transfer to a comprehensive stroke center where patients can receive advanced therapy.This one-two punch of diagnosis and treatment is particularly important for rural hospitals in Maryland that do not have experts to interpret computed tomography (CT) images or the resources to execute advanced therapies. “We have learned that we can really improve lives,” said Michael S. Phipps, M.D., MHS, director of the University of Maryland’s Brain Attack Center, which serves as one of the Maryland Comprehensive Stroke Centers. “When we are able to view images quickly, we can make better decisions faster. That changes outcomes.” Greg Freiherr has reported on developments in radiology since 1983. He runs the consulting service, The Freiherr Group.

Is Costa Ricas gender wage gap really among the worlds lowest

first_imgRelated posts:Kölbi marks International Women’s Day with ill-conceived ad campaign Costa Rica ranks fifth in gender gap in Latin America RECOPE opposes referendum that could break its fuel market monopoly Employment outlook among industrial sector shows no improvement Analysis websiteFiveThirtyEight published an article last month about the progress of women’s rights since the 1970s, including a finding that Costa Rica is second in gender pay equity in a country list led by Belgium.The publication noted that the list is composed of 37 countries that are “either members or partners of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).”Belgium showed a gender wage gap of 3.3 percent, followed by Costa Rica with 3.7 percent. Luxembourg, Slovenia and Italy followed at 4.1, 5.0 and 5.6 percent respectively.Canada ranked 29th with 18.6 percent and the U.S. was 31st with 18.9 percent.The analysis followed OECD’s definition of a gender wage gap, which “is unadjusted and is defined as the difference between median earnings of men and women relative to median earnings of men.” That means that the calculations did not take into account differences in, experience, schooling, or specific professions, among other factors.But is Costa Rica really on the forefront of gender pay equality?Local approachThe Costa Rican weekly El Financiero published a report in 2015 on the wage differences between men and women. Their reporters’ approach consisted of a wage comparison using an analysis tool developed by the newspaper. The online tool uses a linear regression model that calculates the effect that seven variables have on local wages.The Wage Calculator allowed El Financiero to find the effects on average montly wages of age, gender, region of residence, region of work, work area, schooling and weekly working hours.The calculator’s results when comparing two people with the same values in all these variables — except for gender — showed that a Costa Rican woman earned up to 27 percent less than a man.The analysis also found that a woman in a small business earned a maximum monthly wage of ₡1.4 million per month ($2,460), while a man in the same post, and with the same values in all other variables, could get up to ₡1.9 million ($3,340).At a large company, the maximum monthly wage for a woman on average was ₡1.9 million ($3,340), while for a man it was ₡2.6 million ($4,571), the newspaper found.The pay gap was bigger among public-sector workers. A professional woman in the government earned an average of ₡2.3 million ($4,044) that year, while a man in the same post could make up to ₡3.2 million ($5,626).Unemployment by genderThe disparity between men and women is also evident in local employment indicators.The National Institute of Statistics and Census (INEC) earlier this year reported that unemployment during Q4-2016 was 6.9 percent for men and 13.8 percent for women. That means that of an estimated 218,000 unemployed people in Costa Rica, 98,000 are men and 119,000 are women.INEC noted that an interannual comparison of data “do not show significant changes” from the same quarter in 2015.Results in both cases came from INEC’s Employment Survey for that quarter released last Feb. 9.

Chinese media slam human rights lawyers as rabblerousers

first_imgBEIJING (AP) — China’s state media on Tuesday accused more than two dozen human rights lawyers rounded up in recent days of being troublemakers intent on illegal activism, as foreign governments and rights groups expressed growing concern over the crackdown.The human rights watchdog Amnesty International said 25 human rights lawyers and civil activists have been detained or have disappeared since last Thursday. Another 123 people — mostly lawyers and activists — have been warned not to speak out or act on behalf of those detained, it said. Many of those warned were detained briefly themselves. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Sponsored Stories The crackdown targets Chinese lawyers who have joined with civil activists in publicizing alleged unlawful practices by police and courts, drawing public attention to unjust cases, disputing official descriptions of controversial events and challenging authorities to follow the letter of the law.Human Rights Watch researcher Maya Wang said the human rights lawyers had helped build a civil society in China over the past decade to hold authorities accountable, and that the crackdown was part of a “methodological dismantling” of that civil society since Chinese President Xi Jinping came to power.The U.S. State Department condemned the detentions earlier this week and called for the release of the lawyers, who it said were “seeking to protect the rights of Chinese citizens.”The nationalist newspaper Global Times responded Tuesday by calling the U.S. criticism uncomfortable but inconsequential — like having “chewing gum stuck to your shoe” — and said it was up to Chinese courts to decide whether the lawyers acted illegally.State media reports have depicted the lawyers as self-promoters intent on spreading half-truths and arranging illegal protests outside court venues. The official Xinhua News Agency said lawyers should uphold the law, not engage in “rabble-rousing” and “mob rule.” Many of the detained lawyers belong to Beijing law firm Fengrui, which has defended human rights activists and practitioners of the banned spiritual group Falun Gong. Its office was raided by police on Friday.The Public Security Ministry accused the lawyers of disrupting public order, seeking illicit profits, illegally hiring protesters and trying to unfairly influence the courts, Xinhua said, saying more than 40 such incidents had occurred since July 2012.The group of human rights lawyers and civil activists has been labeled a major crime gang, which the ministry claimed to have destroyed through a coordinated operation, Xinhua said.Authorities have considered human rights lawyers a thorn in the side of the state for some time. Last year, state media began to question the reputations of many of the lawyers, saying they were more interested in seeking publicity than practicing their trade inside the courtroom.A trigger for the crackdown may have been a police shooting in May in which members of the Chinese public questioned whether an officer acted properly in drawing a gun and fatally shooting an unarmed but irate man inside a train station in northeastern China.Wu Gan, an activist with ties to the Fengrui firm who is known for his raucous but effective methods, obtained a video clip showing the police officer beating up the man before he was shot. Rights lawyers offered legal opinions, and liberal intellectuals wrote commentaries demanding that the authorities be held accountable in conducting an investigation. Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Comments   Share   center_img To defend the police officer, authorities released an earlier video highlighting the erratic and violent behavior of the man prior to the shooting. Still, public doubts lingered, showing the power of activists to thwart the official narrative.Wu was detained on May 20 when rallying public support for a separate case in southern China. He has been arrested on charges of inciting to overthrow state power as well as provoking trouble.Wu was nominally an employee of Fengrui, as an administrative assistant, though it’s unclear what work he did for the firm and how he was paid. Such an arrangement for activists by people who are sympathetic with their causes is not unheard of in China.Zhou Shifeng, the firm’s head, praised Wu for his effectiveness just one day before Zhou himself was forcibly taken away by police. The Xinhua report said Zhou was being investigated over “severe violations of law.”Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

that an incident could result in significant long-term environmental damage” she wrote “A failure to account for these possibilities is considered to be a substantial flaw with the currently proposed Sandpiper route”MPCA’s proposed route reduced the number of these crossings to fourLaDuke said she is glad the PUC is requiring the route alternative be studied but that the work of her organization and others is not done She hopes the horse ride and accompanying tour will bring more exposure and interest people who will be affected by the Sandpiper“We still have a really good gig here We are in
