Saint Martin’s University and Japanese Sister School Mukogawa Celebrate 30 Years…

first_imgSubmitted by Saint Martin’s UniversitySt. Martin’s celebrates a 30 year partnership with Mukogawa Women’s University.Long before international and intercultural exchange activities became  a regular part of life at Saint Martin’s, the presidents of Saint Martin’s University, then a college, and Mukogawa Women’s University in Nishinomiya, Japan, forged a sister-school relationship that is still going strong today.This summer, the two universities will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their summer cultural exchange agreement, which has enabled students on both sides of the Pacific to personally experience and learn about another culture, language and way of life.A 30th Anniversary celebration will mark the occasion on August 14 at the Norman Worthington Conference Center.  More than 100 guests are expected to attend the event. Guests will include host families, student cultural ambassadors, visiting students from Mukogawa, and U.S. students.  Hirotoshi Yano, chief professor of Mukogawa’s education department, will be traveling to Saint Martin’s especially for the anniversary celebration.“Our relationship with Mukogawa is particularly important, as it started the Saint Martin’s tradition of promoting educational partnerships and intercultural exchange with higher education institutions in other parts of the world,” says Josephine Yung, vice president of international programs and development. “It serves as a model of successful cultural exchange that connects people to people, and provides wonderful and exciting opportunities for young people from all over the world.”Yung says the exchange program with Mukogawa was started in 1984 by then president of Saint Martin’s President John Ishii, Ph.D., Washington state’s first Asian-American college president, and Mukogawa President Akira Kusaka.  Both considered promotion of international understanding and intercultural friendships a crucial part of preparing their students to live and work in an increasingly interconnected world.  The legacy of both presidents lives on, even though both presidents have died.Each year, about 30 to 40 young women from Mukogawa – most of them early childhood education majors – come to Saint Martin’s for the summer program. Included are workshops and learning experiences, sightseeing, a weekend stay with a local host family, fieldtrips to daycare centers, libraries and other institutions, a cultural celebration – and of course, shopping. They live in Saint Martin’s residence halls, dine in the cafeteria and get to know U.S. students, experiences that give them a window into life in the United States.  Close to 1,000 students from Mukogawa Women’s University have participated in cultural exchange with Saint Martin’s students the last 30 years, Yung said.What began as a single exchange paved the way for other sister university relationships for Saint Martin’s. The University now has educational and cultural exchange with other Japanese schools, China, South Korea, Taiwan, Northern Ireland, England, France, Italy, Russia and most recently, Brazil.

Series A could start again without VAR

first_imgThe president also commented on the latest events regarding the resumption of competitions: “It is spoken as if we were going to play again tomorrow, but I did not hear any proposal for the referees. They are ready, they respect the rules, they work by teleconference, but before returning you have to be vigilant. They move alone with trains and planes, they would experience risky situations. To start again, I will ask for guarantees. “ Series A runs the risk of resuming the competitions without the help of the VAR: the president of the Italian referee association, Marcello Nicchi, maintains it. The executive told the ‘Rai’: “There is such a possibility, we could be forced to resign. The VAR is used in tight environments, with operators working very close, it would be difficult to respect the distances. I hope it does not happen, but it would force us to health emergency. “last_img read more

The return is delayed 48 hours because the ‘tests’ are not yet

first_imgIrene Lozano, president of the CSD, has declared today that “Sport will return. It will be in phases and respecting all the measures set by Health, but sport will return. “The Secretary of State for Sport He already advanced that “it is vital that soccer recovers activity”. The captain of Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos has joined the idea: “I am looking forward to playing again, step on the Bernabéu again and put on the Real Madrid shirt. “Hopefully we return to normality as soon as possible, but the important thing is health. We must not be selfish. The personal opinion of each one must be left out and heed the Health guidelines.”The CSD has summoned all parties (RFEF, Liga and AFE) tomorrow to review the phases of the de-escalation in the football, which will start next week and end on the second weekend of June with the matches of day 28 of the League Championship. From that day on, seven more days will be played over the weekend and three days during the week until the remaining 11 days are completed.. In the meeting on Thursday, the CSD hopes to overcome the reluctance of AFE, which in its meeting with Thebes has put forth the occupational risk plan to return to play and whose president, Aganzo, denies having reached an agreement on the terms of the return to the activity. Players will not be able to return to the individualized training sessions that the Government has authorized as of Monday because the coronavirus ‘tests’ have not yet passed, as it appears in the LaLiga protocol. The plan is most likely to be delayed 48/72 hours, and that soccer players cannot train until the middle of next week. LaLiga sources have not wanted to confirm the reasons for the delay, but several top clubs have confirmed that it is related to the fact that the tests have not yet been passed.This is one of the conditions that the president of the AFE, David Aganzo, had demanded for the return based in the application of health rights and occupational prevention. At LaLiga they understand that the delay will not affect in general terms the expected deadlines, and that training will begin at the end of next week and will begin to compete in the second week of June.The league has informed the AFE and the First and Second Clubs of the protocol which will continue for the return to activity from next week, sticking to the instructions that the Government has given for the return to activity, something that LaLiga claims to comply with. These instructions are those agreed by Thebes, Rubiales and Irene Lozano in the Pact of Viana and which have been forwarded to the Ministry of Health. The president of LaLiga has spoken with the clubs, which have also given him the go-ahead with the same condition, which is shared by the president of the Federation, Luis Rubiales. The ‘tests’ are a fundamental part of the protocol and must be done before starting to train.last_img read more

Ramjattan booted as AFC’s leader

first_img… as party yet to clear M campaign debt…Trotman returns to head partyAlliance For Change (AFC) delegates on Saturday rejected incumbent leader Khemraj Ramjattan’s bid to be re-elected, instead choosing former leader and party co-founder Raphael Trotman.AFC delegates and supporters gathered in the Vreed-en-Hoop Primary as voting got underwayThe voting took place during the AFC’s fifth biennial National Executive Conference (NEC) at the Vreed-en-Hoop Primary School. When the dust settled, Trotman received 127 votes versus Ramjattan’s 125, thus being declared the winner.News of Trotman’s election was greeted by congratulatory messages from President David Granger, who is currently in The Dominican Republic attending the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) summit.Granger expressed enthusiasm in working with Trotman as the new leader and recommitted to the Cummingsburg Accord, which joins the AFC and A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) together.The Accord had designated responsibilities such as domestic affairs and chairing of Cabinet to AFC Executive and Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo. When these things did not materialise, the Opposition had noted that Nagamootoo’s role was largely ceremonial. Nagamootoo has always insisted otherwise.Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo as he addressed the crowd. Seated at the head table from left are Party Executives: Junior Indigenous People’s Affairs Minister Valerie Garrido-Lowe; Agriculture Minister Noel Holder; Business Minister Dominic Gaskin; Public Telecommunications Minister Catherine Hughes; Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan; Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman; and Public Infrastructure Minister David PattersonMeanwhile, after Trotman’s victory in the leadership race and Public Telecommunications Minister Cathy Hughes’ decision to withdraw, Ramjattan was declared Chairman of the party.Hughes was declared Vice Chairperson, beating challenges from junior Indigenous People’s Affairs Minister Valerie Garrido-Lowe and Audwin Rutherford. With Hughes receiving 116 votes, her margin over Lowe – 76 votes and Rutherford – 47, was a gaping one.Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson was also defeated in his bid for re-election as General Secretary by Marlon Williams, who gained 125 votes versus Patterson’s 83. Michael Carrington, the third contender, received 12 votes.There had been much contention about Ramjattan’s intent to accept nomination for the leadership of the party. Many observers, including persons affiliated with the party, had pointed out provisions in the AFC constitution prohibiting a leader from returning to a post for more than two terms.Article 19 (1) of the AFC’s constitution provides for the rotation of leaders within the AFC “so as to ensure a broader activism in leadership positions by the membership”.However, Ramjattan told reporters on Thursday that while the constitution was formulated to ensure the change of leadership was a necessity, it does not exclude those of whom might want to run for a third term or whom might be nominated to run.“… that formulation was never done in identical terms to what the national Constitution says, which eliminated after two terms. We were two very good lawyers who formulated it in that way which extends but a desirability – that’s why the world “ought” was used and not “shall” or “must”,” he explained.Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman, a co-founder of the party, had objected to the notion of one member holding the same position for more than two consecutive terms. In fact, Trotman, who helped to draft the party’s constitution, had asserted that the spirit of the constitution was to ensure that the leadership is constantly rotated.However, Ramjattan posited that this will result in the entire hierarchy of the party being excluded from running.According to Ramjattan, his reason behind accepting the nomination would be to create a precedent that indeed people can run for a third term if it is a necessity of the situation and the circumstances.He had justified continuing for another term by pointing out that he was nominated by his party’s membership. He had also said he provided high quality leadership since he assumed the role in 2012.last_img read more

“Demand more from your regional officials” – Harmon tells Mabaruma residents

first_imgMinister of State Joseph Harmon on Sunday, urged the residents of Mabaruma, Region One (Barima-Waini) and its surrounding communities to hold public officials, inclusive of those in Regional and Neighbourhood Democratic Councils (RDC/NDCs) accountable.Minister of State Joseph Harmon addressing residents at the Mabaruma Primary SchoolPublic officials, the Minister stated have been elected to serve and citizens must, therefore, demand that their interests and those of the community are addressed.Minister Harmon was at the time speaking at a community meeting held at the Mabaruma Primary School where he addressed concerns raised by residents.He told residents that Central Government would continue to play its part in ensuring that infrastructural, social and other needs were met but noted that the Regional and Neighbourhood Democratic Councils must also share in this responsibility.Harmon also said that community leaders and regional and local officials must understand their roles and endeavour to function efficiently. He posited that citizens suffer the most when leaders become complacent and do not serve in the best interests of those who elected them.“Our community leaders must face the community. If you cannot talk to your people and do things for them then they will not respect you or listen to you. You have to see people and see what they need. As a leader, you need to get on the ground and relate to people so that you can understand what is taking place. It is always important to come on the ground and get in touch with the people, with their feelings, with their understandings and what needs to be done,” Minister Harmon said.Several residents raised concerns about Government-sponsored programmes such as the Sustainable Livelihoods and Entrepreneurial Development [SLED] Project, community training and other capacity-building opportunities, which they said is only beneficial to one section of the community.Harmon assured the aggrieved residents that the Social Protection and Public Health Ministries along with other agencies would be consulted on the approach used to select candidates for programmes and initiatives. He made it clear that all must benefit from opportunities made available by the Government.Additionally, the Minister of State spoke of President David Granger’s Frontline Village Policy that was announced during his visit to Whitewater – also in Region One – earlier this year. The policy speaks to the establishment of military patrol bases and heightened 24-hour security by the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) and the Guyana Police Force (GPF).As such, Minister Harmon urged the residents to continue being vigilant as the country’s borders are expansive.last_img read more

Merrill Lynch CEO O’Neil falls from grace

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.The unfolding credit crisis claimed its biggest corporate casualty so far, although O’Neal walks away with an exit package worth $161.5 million. O’Neal’s downfall took just six days from the time Merrill reported that record loss, although some were surprised it took even that long. “What did him in so quickly is that O’Neal failed to develop supporters who would defend him and fight hard at the board or executive level,” said Richard X. Bove, an analyst with Punk, Ziegel & Co. “One of the reasons is that he fired 26,000 workers, some of which were his supporters, and that made him vulnerable.” Whoever replaces O’Neal faces a daunting task – so much so that the most widely tipped candidate, BlackRock CEO Laurence Fink, turned down an initial offer but has since engaged the board in active discussions, said a person with direct knowledge of the offer who was not authorized to speak publicly. Any successor will step into a Merrill Lynch that O’Neal aggressively transformed into a more diversified investment house from one that relied heavily on just stock trading. NEW YORK – Stan O’Neal was known as one of the most ruthless men on Wall Street – clawing his way up from an impoverished upbringing in Alabama to run the world’s largest brokerage. His tough, take-no-prisoners drive at Merrill Lynch & Co. was celebrated when he delivered record profits during his five-year tenure as CEO. But O’Neal, who was purportedly fond of saying “ruthless isn’t always that bad,” found out Tuesday that even he wasn’t immune to the cutthroat ways of Wall Street. After delivering investors a $2.24 billion quarterly loss – Merrill’s biggest since being founded 93 years ago – O’Neal was forced to retire by a board of directors that he mostly picked. The brokerage racked up record profits as he emphasized riskier bets than past Merrill CEOs. That strategy – which handed Merrill Lynch record results during the market’s peak – came with a heavy cost during the tumultuous third quarter. There is speculation by many analysts that Merrill Lynch faces a $4 billion writedown during the fourth quarter. This would be on top of a $7.9 billion charge taken last quarter, a stunning amount since Merrill originally said it would write down only $4.5 billion because of credit market turmoil. O’Neal, 56, accepted blame for the losses, which immediately led to calls for his ouster. Merrill Lynch still has a sizable portfolio of complex financial instruments called collateralized debt obligations, which combine slices of different kinds of risk. It was Merrill’s bet on CDOs, and the subprime mortgages underpinning many of them, that proved to be O’Neal’s downfall. Dealing with the risky portfolio will be the priority of co-presidents and chief operating officers Ahmass Fakahany and Gregory Fleming. Merrill Lynch said their duties will be split – with Fleming in charge of Merrill’s front-line businesses, such as its brokerage.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgHugh McCrea of Ramelton finally gets his medal.A 91 year old Ramelton veteran of the Second World War has been honoured this week with medals of bravery from Russia for his part in the legendary Arctic Convoys.Hugh McCrea of Aughnish Road in Ramelton has been honoured 70 years after he was part of the legendary Arctic convoys that delivered essential supplies to the Soviet Union at the height of the Second World War.By John McAteer, editor of the Tirconail Tribune The Russian Embassy said the Ushakov Medal awarded to Hugh McCrea is according to the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir V. Putin – “For personal courage and bravery shown during the World War II with the participation in the Northern Convoys”.The Medal was awarded on behalf of the Ambassador of the Russian Federation in Ireland H.E. Maxim A. Peshkov by the Defence Attache to the Embassy of the Russian Federation Colonel Alexey Y. Korkach and Assistant Defence Attache Major Victor E. Milyutin.The medal commemorates Admiral Fyodor Ushakov who never lost a battle and was proclaimed patron saint of the Russian Navy.Hugh joined the Royal Navy in Liverpool in 1943 and served for three years in the service during the darkest days of the conflict. More than 3,400 seamen died over four years from 1941 on missions to keep open supply lines to Soviet ports, travelling what Winston Churchill dubbed the “worst journey in the world”.Hugh served in the Royal Navy for three years at the height of the war as part of the Artic Convoy Protection Patrols.Now seventy years on, he’s been presented with the medal for his contribution to the patrols that guarded cargo vessels from German bombers and U-boats as the war raged across Europe.Hugh is one three surviving Irishmen to be presented with the honour this year. He has described the presentation as a very emotional and proud occasion and said he was one of the very lucky ones to survive.“I feel very honoured and very humbled and I’m lucky to have survived a shocking period in our history,” he adds. He also recalls meeting his future wife, Renee Corry while home on shore leave from the Navy. They later married and had a family of four. Renee, who was one of stalwarts of the Ramelton Pantomime for a generation passed away ten years ago.Hugh served as a telegraphist with the British Navy between 1943 and ’46 and was part of the huge war effort to protect commercial shipping on the North Atlantic routes and to the port of Murmansk in Russia. Hugh recalls ‘celebrating’ his 21st birthday aboard a British escort sloop HMS Magpie on escort duty off the Russian port in 1944.He received the medals from officials of the Russian Embassy on Tuesday morning when they visited his home.With naval escorts, around 1400 merchant vessels sailed from Britain, Iceland and North America to the Soviet ports of Archangel and Murmansk. Sailors braved freezing conditions to deliver essential food and munitions to the Soviet Union and Hugh McCrea has the most vivid recollections of the hardships, the bravery, the loss of lives and ships and the freezing conditions they had to endure.The convoys carried food, munitions, weapons and vehicles donated under the Allies’ lend-lease agreement. These supplies were vital to Russian troops on the Eastern Front, particularly those resisting the siege of Leningrad.85 merchant vessels and 16 Royal Navy warships were lost over the course of the campaign. 3000 lives were lost and Hugh pays tribute to the bravery of all his colleagues whose contributions defeated the forces of Hitler in what was the darkest period of the Second World War.The crewmen of the convoys endured constant threat of attack by enemy submarines, aircraft and surface ships as well as atrocious polar weather conditions. If ships were sunk, sailors died in minutes in freezing waters.Of the many who served in the Arctic convoys, it is thought that between 200 and 400 sailors, all now at least in their late 80s, are still alive.Hugh McCrea is proud to be among them as he prepares to celebrate Christmas with his daughter and family.Hugh trained as a telegraphist in Belfast and Portsmouth before joining the Royal Navy and later came home to Ramelton to help run the family auctioneering business on the Mall. Basil McCrea’s firm was among Donegal’s most important selling agents and shortly after coming back, Hugh took over the business and also began importing coal when RJ Gamble’s opted out of the fuel services.Hugh McCrea says his brother, Bill who is now 93 served for over 20 years in the Royal Airforce and was also highly decorated for his bravery and services to th war effort.Hugh McCrea’s son, Basil is currently an MLA in the Northern Ireland Assembly.WAR MEDAL FOR DONEGAL MAN – 70 YEARS ON was last modified: December 18th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalHugh McCreamedalRameltonRussialast_img read more

Best money can buy! The dream Diego Costa replacements for Chelsea this summer

first_img Kylian Mbappe (Monaco) – The majority of Europe’s elite clubs are chasing Mbappe’s signature this season, which is no surprise given the breakthrough campaign the teenager enjoyed at Monaco. The 18-year-old scored 15 in Ligue 1 and netted six in the Champions League to prove he’s more than capable of competing with the world’s finest players, despite his young age. He’ll cost an awful lot of money, but if the Premier League champions want to signal a major message of intent in the summer market, there can no better way to do so than by going all out for the Frenchman. 6 Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon) – Lacazette was one of the most in-demand players of the summer transfer window last year, but stayed put in Lyon and predictably continued to freely hit the back of the net in Ligue 1. He’s scored 76 league goals in the past three seasons combined, and plenty want the striker to now test his ability outside of the French top flight. Diego Costa has been told where to go by Antonio Conte, leaving Chelsea with a big player to replace in this summer’s market.The Premier League champions are yet to act in the transfer window, but rumours are beginning to intensify over possible targets.Chelsea no doubt have the funds to go all out for one of Europe’s top centre forwards – so who should they be going for?Scroll through the gallery above to check out six ‘dream’ replacements to Diego Costa. Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) – Sanchez deserved to be ending the campaign with more than an FA Cup winners’ medal to take home. The Chilean carried Arsenal for much of last season, with it likely the north London outfit would have finished lower than fifth without his influence. While typically considered a winger, the 28-year-old was often played in a central attacking role and scored the majority of his 24 league goals in this position (17). The thought of Sanchez lining up with Eden Hazard is mouth-watering. 6 6 6 Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund) – It seems to be only a matter of time before Aubameyang moves on from the Westfalenstadion. The Gabon striker won the Bundesliga Golden Boot last season, beating Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski to the honour with 31 goals. His pace in attack would lighten up any attack and he could help to bring out the very best in Eden Hazard. 6 Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) – click the arrow above, right, to check out more ‘dream’ replacements to Diego Costa at Chelsea – Bayern were today forced to release a statement warning clubs over any approach for Lewandowski’s signature, with Sky Sports claiming Chelsea and Manchester United had held talks with the striker’s representatives. Only a tremendous offer would force the Bundesliga club to sell, but the aforementioned duo certainly have the finances to make it happen. The Poland international would be an upgrade to Diego Costa and the Stamford Bridge faithful will be dreaming about this deal, even if it is a little farfetched. Andrea Belotti (Torino) – It’s still early days in the career of Belotti, but he seems the real deal. The Italy international scored 26 goals in Serie A last season, more than double the tally he recorded in the previous campaign for Torino. His career is on the rise and he might well be tempted to see if he can replicate his form in the Premier League. 6last_img read more
