Jones Graduate School of Management was ranked 40th among the top MBA programs in a survey by U.S. News & World Report. Along with the overall ranking, several indicators were also published, highlighting the program’s key strengths. These measures, especially relevant to prospective students and Rice MBA graduates, indicate important achievements for the Rice MBA full-time program. They include: 1.         Starting salary/bonus – Rice MBA graduates reported an average starting salary/bonus package totaling $101,529. Among the 50 top schools, the Rice MBA placed 25th for highest starting salary/bonus.  2.         Employed three months after graduation – 94.8 percent of the 2007 graduates were employed three months after graduation. Only 19 other programs had higher employment percentages. Additionally, the demand for Rice MBA graduates is exceptionally high, with most graduates reporting more than two offers.  ”The Jones School is extremely pleased to be recognized as a top business school by the U.S. News & World Report,” said Bill Glick, dean of the Jones School. ”Although we ranked very well this year, we realize that media rankings are only one indicator of a school’s quality. We are particularly pleased to see that the program excelled on metrics that matter the most to our students and graduates. “The Rice MBA’s rigorous curriculum, excellent faculty, intimate learning environment, effective career management center and other strengths contribute greatly to differentiating the Jones School as an exceptional school acknowledged for producing thought leaders,” he said. ”The long-term educational value is most evident in the many successes of our students and alumni.” All 425 master’s programs in business accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) were surveyed by U.S. News & World Report. The graduate program rankings will be published in the April 7-14 edition of the magazine and in the U.S. News & World Report 2009 edition of America’s Best Graduate Schools.last_img read more

Organizations must collaborate to address Houstons food deserts

A new report from Rice University’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research says collaboration between hunger-fighting organizations is necessary to address the problem.center_img Return to article. Long DescriptionPhoto credit: 123rf.com“Challenges of Social Sector Systemic Collaborations: What’s Cookin’ in Houston’s Food Insecurity Space?” is authored by Doug Schuler, a Kinder Fellow and associate professor of business and public policy at Rice’s Jones Graduate School of Business, and Balaji Koka, an associate professor of strategic management at the Jones School, examines the nature of collaborations between nonprofit, for-profit and governmental organizations working on food insecurity and food deserts in Houston.Research shows that unequal access to healthy food is likely to blame for some of the negative health outcomes in the Houston metropolitan area.“In Harris County alone, about 1 in 3 children is likely to be obese and about 1 in 3 children born since 2000 is likely to develop diabetes,” the report says. “These health challenges result in additional health care costs of $3 billion in just Harris County.”Schuler and Koka found four major types of collaborations among these organizations: dominant player supply chain, where dominant organizations share a common agenda and have a self-reinforcing relationship; neighborhood wrap-around, which concentrates on directing persons who access pantries to receive other social services; umbrella, which involves large organizations that recruit smaller groups to deliver a bundle of services; and informational, which gathers information about delivery of services.However, the authors said none of these forms of collaboration lead to the level of integration and coordination required over an extended period to solve such an important social issue.The researchers said the biggest hurdles for accomplishing long-term positive change include institutional barriers stemming from funders, government policies and politics, and a mindset of competition in which organizations strive for resources and market dominance often at the expense of cooperation.The researchers suggest the following:Funders should invest in efforts that focus beyond short-term, quickly visible outcomes.Funders should require recipients to report activities across multiple dimensions, including how they contribute to other organizations and what they receive outside of their own programs.Governments should make policies as flexible as possible to support collaborations between entities.Organizations should focus less on competition and more on a mindset of altruism and civic consciousness. If the goal is to address food insecurity, it should not matter which organization receives credit.Organizations should be willing to share knowledge and collaborate for the common good.The authors hope their research will inspire funders, policymakers and other organizations to adopt policies, processes and mindsets that encourage collaborations and flexible operations while avoiding competitive actions.The report was based on data collected from interviews, experiential field visits and focus groups of individuals living in one food desert neighborhood. The interviews and visits occurred over 33 months between 2015 and 2018.The report is available online at https://kinder.rice.edu/.-30-For more information, contact Amy McCaig, senior media relations specialist at Rice, at 713-348-6777 or amym@rice.edu.This news release can be found online at http://news.rice.edu/.Follow Rice News and Media Relations via Twitter @RiceUNews.Related materials:Photo link: https://news.rice.edu/files/2019/03/61925602_l-1tq528r.jpgPhoto credit: 123rf.comKinder Institute website: https://kinder.rice.edu/Report link: https://kinder.rice.edu/research/challenges-social-sector-systemic-collaborations-whats-cookin-houstons-food-insecurityLocated on a 300-acre forested campus in Houston, Rice University is consistently ranked among the nation’s top 20 universities by U.S. News & World Report.

US Navy Says Deadly McCain Collision Was Preventable Deals With Ship Commander

(ROSLAN RAHMAN/AFP/Getty Images) Share this article The collision of the USS John S.McCain guided missile destroyer with a merchant ship near Singapore in August that killed 10 sailors was preventable, the U.S. Navy said after it relieved the warship’s commander and his deputy from their duties.“The commanding officer exercised poor judgment, and the executive officer exercised poor leadership of the ship’s training program,” the USS Seventh Fleet said in a statement released in Japan on Wednesday.A spate of U.S. naval collisions this year has resulted in a major leadership shake up in the U.S. Navy in Asia as it tackles increased tensions with North Korea and engages in operations in the South China Sea that challenge Beijing’s growing control of the waterway.The U.S. Navy in August ordered a fleet wide probe and removed Seventh Fleet chief Vice Admiral Joseph Aucoin, citing a lack of confidence in his ability to command.Last month Admiral Scott Swift, responsible for U.S. naval forces in the Pacific, said he plans to retire after being passed over for promotion to the chief of all military forces in the region.The McCain’s sister ship, the Fitzgerald, almost sank off the coast of Japan in June after colliding with a Philippine container ship. That incident claimed the lives of seven U.S. sailors.In May, a South Korean fishing vessel collided with the guided-missile cruiser Lake Champlain, while another guided-missile cruiser, Antietam, damaged its propellers in January while anchoring in Tokyo Bay. The McCain’s captain, Commander A. Sanchez, and his executive officer, Commander J. Sanchez, were reassigned to other duties in Japan, where the Seventh Fleet is headquartered, the Navy said.The Seventh Fleet operates as many as 70 ships, including the U.S. navy’s only forward-deployed aircraft carrier, and has about 140 aircraft and 20,000 sailors.

The following night, they killed a couple, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, at their Los Angeles home. Watson remains in prison in California after repeatedly being denied parole.

703 Get Sick From Chipotle in Ohio Report Says

The cause of the illness is unknown, and tests have come back negative for Salmonella, Shigella, E. coli, and Norovirus.“We have no new update regarding the source or pathogen that has caused so many reported illnesses,” Traci Whittaker, a spokeswoman agency, told Business Insider. “Data analysis and lab results are ongoing and pending.”Customers had symptoms of vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea.Two lawsuits have been filed against the restaurant linked to the Powell location. Clayton Jones, who received medical treatment after eating the food July 27, is seeking $25,000, according to the report. “This is the first of many lawsuits we will be filing on behalf of local residents who were sickened by contaminated Chipotle food,” lawyer attorney Ron Simon. “We have handled hundreds of claims against Chipotle as this is Chipotle’s seventh food poisoning outbreak in the last 3 years. These lawsuits will force Chipotle to change its ways and make its food safer for everyone not just in Powell, Ohio, but across the United States.”Chipotle said it is working with Ohio officials regarding the outbreak.“We acted quickly and closed this single restaurant out of an abundance of caution and we are working with the local health officials to reopen this restaurant as soon as possible,” a Chipotle spokeswoman told Fox  News. Apple, iPhone, and iPad are trademarks of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries.Last year, the chain temporarily closed a restaurant in Virginia after customers reported illnesses. And also in 2017, Chipotle suffered another health scare when rats were seen falling from the ceiling at a Dallas location.“A few mice did get inside one from the outside due to a small structural gap in the building. Management immediately removed them and the gap has been repaired,” Chipotle told Fox News at the time.

Consumers are urged not to consume them. The USDA warned: “Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product.”According to the agency, “The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment. In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider.”In addition, “only consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160°F. Other cuts of beef should be cooked to a temperature of 145°F and allowed to rest for at least 3 minutes,” the USDA stated. “Other cuts of beef should be cooked to a temperature of 145 °F and allowed to rest for at least 3 minutes. The only way to confirm that ground beef or other cuts of beef are cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria is to use a food thermometer that measures internal temperature.”A list of products can be accessed here (pdf) and their labels can be seen here (pdf).If you have any questions about the beef recall, call the JBS USA Consumer Hotline at (800) 727-2333.Turkey Salmonella DeathMeanwhile, last month, at least one person died in the salmonella outbreak linked to raw turkey, according to The Associated Press.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the death was in California but didn’t have any immediate details. Since last November, the agency said 164 people have fallen ill in 35 states, with the most recent case being reported on Oct. 20.No products have been recalled, and the agency hasn’t recommended that people avoid turkey. But it said it believes the outbreak is widespread and ongoing, and it reminded people to properly cook and handle turkey with Thanksgiving approaching. Show Discussion A beef-producing firm said it is recalling 5.1 million pounds of raw beef that might be contaminated with salmonella, said the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA) in a release on Dec. 4.The recalled beef products were produced and packaged by JBS Tolleson Inc. between July 26 and Sept. 7, according to the agency. The products were distributed nationwide to Kroger, Cedar River Farms, Grass Run Farms, and JBS. Today.com noted that the beef may have been shipped to Walmart, Winn Dixie, and Sam’s Club.It’s an expansion of a recall that was first initiated in October for the same reason—a possible salmonella contamination.The beef products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase, said the USDA. The products subject to recall have the establishment number, “EST. 267,” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations and institutions across the United States.There have been 246 confirmed salmonella cases from 25 states between Aug. 5 and Oct. 16, the agency said. Meanwhile, 16 additional patients “have provided receipts or shopper card numbers for the product traceback investigations,” said the USDA. “We are still seeing new illnesses being reported on a weekly basis,” said Colin Basler, an epidemiologist with the CDC.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

The State of the University is Excellent

first_img E-Headlines Pinterest 0 on February 4, 2014 LinkedIn By CBN Share. Tumblrcenter_img The State of the University is Excellent OSU President Ed Ray announced Friday that the university’s first comprehensive campaign has surpassed its $1 billion fund-raising goal, eleven months ahead of schedule.He made the announcement at his annual “State of the University” address in Portland to an audience of more than 600 business, political, civic and education leaders, alumni and friends of the university.The event is hosted by the OSU Alumni Association and OSU’s Portland Business Roundtable.Gifts to The Campaign for OSU total $1,012,601,000. Oregon State joins only 34 other public universities in the country to have crossed the billion-dollar mark in a fund-raising campaign.“While this is a remarkable milestone, this campaign has never been about the big number,” Ray said. “Our generous donors are committed, as is the university, to transforming Oregon State into a top-10 land grant research university to significantly advance the health of the Earth, its people and our economy.”The campaign’s more than 102,000 donors to the campaign have: • Created more than 600 new scholarships and fellowship funds – a 30 percent increase – with gifts for student support exceeding $170 million • Contributed more than $100 million to help attract and retain leading professors and researchers, including funding for 77 of Oregon State’s 124 endowed faculty positions • Supported the construction or renovation of more than two dozen campus facilities, including Austin Hall in the College of Business, the Linus Pauling Science Center, new cultural centers, and the OSU Basketball Center. Bonding support from the state was critical to many of these projects.“The campaign is about developing and energizing a community of dedicated advocates, people who share our vision of what Oregon State can accomplish,” Ray said. “These partners have changed Oregon State forever – and I believe the best is yet to come.”In his State of the University address, Ray said Oregon needs to quit talking and start planning to meet its goal of a more educated citizenry to achieve economic and social prosperity. He cited the state’s lack of apparent focus on reaching Oregon’s “40-40-20″ educational achievement goal, which calls for 40 percent of adult Oregonians to hold a bachelor’s or advanced degree, 40 percent to have an associate’s degree or a meaningful postsecondary certificate, and all adult Oregonians to hold a high school diploma or equivalent by the year 2025. OSU has developed a plan to do its part and is committed to those goals, already demonstrating success, Ray said. But more is needed.“Beyond Oregon State University’s own enrollment management and strategic plan, I have no idea how the state will get to 40-40-20, which could require as many as 35,000 more students annually enrolled in our four-year universities and colleges,” Ray said. “There is no statewide blueprint.”Ray went on to describe how OSU’s enrollment grew by 1,532 students in Corvallis and online and by another 135 students at OSU-Cascades in Bend. “Despite those gains, the net increase in enrollment among all Oregon public universities outside of Oregon State totaled 14 students,” Ray pointed out.Ray said the university expects to educate 28,000 students in Corvallis, 3,000 to 5,000 students at OSU-Cascades by 2025 and grow its online enrollment to more than 7,000 students. The university also plans to educate another 500 students annually by 2025 at a new marine studies campus located in Newport.Ray, who recently completed his 10th year as OSU president, pointed to several Oregon State University initiatives that will help boost the economy.OSU will lead a new national effort through its College of Forestry to advance the science and technology necessary to utilize wood in the construction of taller buildings in a public-private partnership that will advance manufacturing in Oregon and boost rural economies.The university launched the OSU Advantage last year – a one-stop shop for linking businesses with the students and researchers of Oregon State to accelerate new business development and spinoff companies; OSU’s research enterprise continues to grow and reached $263 million in 2013 – a 70 percent increase over the last decade.Two major initiatives include the selection of Oregon State to lead the design and construction of the next generation of ocean-going research vessels for the United States, and the selection of OSU, along with partners in Alaska and Hawaii, to operate one of six national sites for unmanned aircraft systems.Industry-sponsored research is up 60 percent in five years, and licensing agreements with industry have increased 83 percent. Since 2006, OSU has helped launched 20 startup companies, which have raised $190 million in venture capital and created hundreds of jobs.“Economic development,” Ray said, “is part of our DNA.” Facebook Google+ Twitter Emaillast_img read more

Health Matters Maximizing Efforts to Maintaining Your Health

first_img We hear the terms “good health” and “good healthcare” being thrown around quite a lot lately. It seems like these terms are used mostly by our government officials and the medical insurance industry.  Unfortunately, as many Americans are well aware, neither of these entities provide medical care and consequently don’t really understand what those two terms mean. The expression “good health” does not have a specific definition which can be applied to all circumstances because it is a personal decision that each of us make for ourselves, and discuss with our physicians in order to obtain advice regarding maintaining  what we feel is “good health.” Thus, it would logically follow that the definition of good healthcare would be the “provision of good health” via advice from one’s physician based on what the patient feels is important to maintaining their health. In order for a physician to provide the best advice regarding your specific medical problem, he/she needs to spend as much time as possible getting to know you, listening to your problem, asking specific questions relating to your problem, reviewing your past medical history and your medication list as thoroughly as possible. This takes time, which is in short supply in the healthcare industry, and with many new government and insurance company rules which require more of the physician’s time to be spent documenting an office visit, that time is in much shorter supply these days. Consequently, I have changed my medical practice in order to maximize the amount of face to face time with my patients so that I can provide the best medical care possible. Along with this, I have converted my practice to an entirely house-call based practice in order to be as user friendly and convenient as possible. I will see patients in their home, nursing home, assisted living facility, foster care home or even come to your work place to provide healthcare. My nurse and I will spend up to one hour with you for your regularly scheduled visits, and up to 30 minutes for same/next day urgent visits. Additionally, you will have direct email and phone access to your nurse and physician for a much more personal experience. This new medical practice is ideally suited for those patients who have a very hard time getting out of their home, those who are self-employed and can’t spend time waiting in an office to see their doctor, and for those who need to take time off of work to drive a loved one to their doctor. Imagine the time and money saved when you don’t have to spend time away from work taking your loved one to their doctor’s office, waiting for the visit to be completed, then driving them back home.  Rest assured that I will spend the time required in order to cautiously review your medications and past medical history as well as listen to your problems and answer your questions thoroughly. Make a decision for better healthcare today, check us out on the web at www.IntegrityWellness.net info@IntegrityWellness.net or 541-719-8398. This practice launches officially on June 2, 2014.
