NJCAA Announces 2020-21 Eligibility Status

first_img Tags: NJCAA October 22, 2020 /Sports News – Local NJCAA Announces 2020-21 Eligibility Status FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailCHARLOTTE, N.C.-In Thursday news from the National Junior College Athletic Association, eligibility status for the 2020-21 season will not count toward student-athlete eligibility. This includes athletes at Snow College, USU Eastern Utah and Salt  Lake Community College in Utah.The eligibility relief is provided to all NJCAA student-athletes regardless of sports season participation in the 2020-21 academic year.NJCAA president/CEO Dr. Christopher Parker, in a Thursday statement, stated the NJCAA Board of Regents felt this decision to be the best for the success and well-being of student-athletes and member institutions of the NJCAA.Returning student-athletes for the Badgers, Eagles and Bruins will be considered “non-counters” for letter of intent and NJCAA eligibility purposes.The NJCAA Eligibility committee will continue review and evaluation concerning the blanket waiver’s impact on eligibility requirements.NJCAA Eligibility Committee Chair Troy Tucker said this is a benefit to member institutions and student-athletes because student-athletes now have the option to choose to participate in studies during this academic year without the fear of burning a year of athletic eligibility should the season be disrupted.Current eligibility and academic requirements will still apply in order for student-athletes to compete in 2020-21 regular season and postseason competition.The eligibility committee will continue to review the participation requirements for the 2020-21 academic year while reassessing for adoption and approval by the NJCAA Board of Regents.

UK restarts Type 31 frigate program competition

first_img View post tag: Type 31 View post tag: Royal Navy After halting a competition for the construction of five Type 31 frigates late July, the UK defense ministry has now relaunched the process.The program was halted on July 24 due to what the defense ministry identified as inadequate competition prior to awarding competitive design phase (CDP) contracts.On August 14, the UK MOD issued a notice saying the competition was once again open. The announcement stated that the five frigates for the Royal Navy are to be built “for a total cost not to exceed £1.25 billion inclusive of Government Furnished Equipment (GFE).”The amount of government furnished equipment that would be made available to the successful bidder was not specified. It is known that some of the equipment from Type 23 frigates is expected to be transferred to Type 26 and 31 ships.The new competition process will consist of a pre-qualification questionnaire, competitive design phase contracts, and finally, a single design and build contract.Interested bidders will be able to submit their expressions to participate by August 20.Bidders whose participation was confirmed for the previously-canceled process were a team composed of Cammell Laird and BAE Systems with a design proposal known as Leander, and a Babcock-led team with the Arrowhead 140 design which was based on the Iver Huitfeldt-class frigates. A third unconfirmed team reportedly taking part in the competition were Atlas Elektronik UK and Thyssenkrup Marine Systems.center_img Share this articlelast_img read more

Food revenue up at Aryzta

first_imgRevenue in Aryzta’s Food Europe division rose 7.5% for the full year to 31 July 2012, to €1.273bn (£795.53m).EBITDA increased 13.7% in the division, while Food North America saw revenue up 13.2%, and Food Rest of the World up 23.0%.The Swiss-based speciality bakery firm, which owns bakery brands including Delice de France, La Brea and Honeytop, saw overall revenue for its food group increase 11.3% to €2.87m (£2.28bn).Owen Killian, chief executive, Aryzta, said the group’s performance had been satisfactory given the challenging macro-environment. “Weak consumer spending affected our customers and the impact of government austerity measures was particularly noticeable in Europe,” said Killian, adding that resurgent food inflation presents additional challenges for Aryzta and its customers.“We have no great expectation of any recovery in consumer behaviour during FY 2013 to support revenue growth and therefore expect underlying fully diluted EPS growth to broadly mirror FY 2012 with an increase of 5% –10%.”It noted a number of prominent food consumption trends, which included the fact that consumers are increasingly seeking foods that are portable and convenient for on-the-go lifestyles, as well as healthier food options, such as whole grain, sodium-free, gluten-free or trans-fat free foods.last_img read more

O’Donnells donate $30 million

first_imgHarvard University announced today that well-known Boston business executive and philanthropist Joseph J. O’Donnell ’67, M.B.A. ’71, a longtime Harvard benefactor, and his wife, Katherine A. O’Donnell, have donated $30 million to the University.The gift, which underscores the O’Donnells’ confidence in what they call the “superb leadership” of President Drew Faust and the School deans, will support Harvard’s long-term mission as planning continues for an eventual University-wide campaign. The O’Donnells hope that their gift will spur others to give early in an effort to help shape the University’s future.For Joe O’Donnell, this latest leg in his nearly five-decade association with Harvard is the culmination of a journey that led him from the streets of Everett, Mass., to the classrooms and athletic fields of the Ivy League. After graduating from Harvard College and Harvard Business School (HBS), he maintained close contact with the University, including a stint as an associate dean at HBS, where he worked closely with future dean John McArthur. O’Donnell has been an active volunteer ever since.“Harvard has played a very important role in my life,” O’Donnell said. “Kathy and I are pleased to have this opportunity to support Drew and the deans as they guide the University forward. We hope that our gift will encourage others to do the same.” He added, “We’ve reached a significant moment in Harvard’s long history, and what we do today will, in large measure, enable the University to expand its critical work in the years ahead — not only in Cambridge but also globally.”“We’re truly excited about this gift,” said Kathy O’Donnell. “Over the years, we’ve witnessed remarkable accomplishments by Harvard alumni, in many different fields, and we’re delighted that we can help Harvard continue to develop young leaders who will contribute to society as a whole.”Faust, the Lincoln Professor of History, praised the O’Donnells for their unwavering commitment and loyalty to Harvard. “As we celebrate Harvard’s 375th anniversary, we are profoundly grateful for extraordinarily generous friends like Joe and Kathy O’Donnell. A gift of this magnitude, at this important time in our history, is indicative of the leadership that has defined Joe’s relationship with Harvard since he arrived in Cambridge nearly half a century ago. Joe and Kathy’s support, on so many levels — advisory, volunteer, and philanthropic — means a lot to Harvard, and it means a lot to me personally. I can’t thank them enough.”The O’Donnells noted that the University has helped change the lives of families around the world, including their own. Harvard’s unparalleled financial aid, which has led to a remarkably diverse student body, along with its athletic opportunities and an extraordinary faculty, are among the reasons behind the outstanding undergraduate experiences of their daughters, Kate ’09 and Casey ’11.“Even though decades separate our time at Harvard, our daughters and I share a common experience,” Joe O’Donnell said. “We were all undergraduates here, and we all benefited from this incredible mix of talented students and teachers. We were fortunate to have had access to exceptional facilities and resources. From academics to athletics to the arts, it was really about everything the place had to offer.”The son of an Everett police officer and a homemaker who was valedictorian of her high school class, O’Donnell attended Malden Catholic High School and Phillips Exeter Academy before enrolling in Harvard College in 1963. After receiving a degree in government, he earned his M.B.A. from HBS in 1971. At Harvard, O’Donnell was a six-time letterwinner in football and baseball, and captained the baseball team as a senior.He founded Boston Culinary Group Inc. (originally Boston Concessions Group Inc.) in 1976, which, under his leadership, grew into a major food service corporation. The company merged with Centerplate in 2010, and O’Donnell now serves as chairman of a nationwide leader in the food service industry. He founded Belmont Capital LLC and also owns Allied Advertising Agency.In 1986, the O’Donnells founded the Joey Fund in memory of their son, who had died of cystic fibrosis earlier that year at age 12. O’Donnell is also a trustee of the National Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which twice presented him with the Breath of Life Award, its highest honor. (Note: The Food and Drug Administration recently approved the first drug to treat the cause, rather than the symptoms, of cystic fibrosis.  Visit http://articles.boston.com/2012-02-09/metro/31038332_1_cystic-fibrosis-foundation-robert-beall-lungs-and-airways for more information.)His other board affiliations include: trustee of Children’s Hospital Trust (philanthropic resource for Children’s Hospital Boston), Malden Catholic High School, the Perkins School for the Blind, and the Winsor School in Boston; and overseer of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. In 2001, he was appointed by President George W. Bush to the President’s Advisory Committee on the Arts.A member of the Harvard Corporation and a director of the Associates of Harvard Business School, O’Donnell has also served on the University’s Board of Overseers, the Allston Work Team, the Harvard College Fund Executive Committee as vice chair for reunion giving, various Harvard College visiting committees, and as an elected director of the Harvard Alumni Association. He has chaired or co-chaired his Harvard College and HBS class reunion committees for many years. In recognition of his service, he received the Richard T. Flood Award from the Harvard College Fund twice, and the HBS Alumni Achievement Award in 2005.last_img read more

3 considerations for virtual training to engage staff & increase sales

first_img continue reading » With many employees still working from home, there is a continued need to develop virtual strategies for ongoing learning and training opportunities. Aside from supporting employee development and success, adopting virtual training programs can help build remote employee engagement and motivation, while at the same time reducing training costs by as much as 30-50%.iHere are three things to take into consideration when building an effective, dynamic staff training program in a virtual environment.1. Diversify the FormatsStudies show that varying the method of instruction can help improve retention and recall of information, and enhance the overall learning experience. Offering a mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning tools can be a great way to train your staff in a virtual environment, as long as these tools are leveraged in an effective way. Deciding which format to use – i.e. hosting a live workshop versus assigning an e-learning exercise – is best determined once considering how your employees may best digest and the information being presented.

Topics : “I wanted to bring them here and teach them, this is my talent,” Hmaid said, wearing a white head-covering in the religiously conservative enclave.”I have one girl in first grade. If she is absent from school for a period of time, she will forget how to grab the pen and how to write.”Gaza teachers have also been giving lessons online during the health crisis.Fajr’s father, Bandar Hmaid, said he was fine with the role his daughter has taken on.”I said okay – but don’t make noise,” he said.last_img read more
