Creative workshops offered at Annenberg Digital Lounge

first_imgLorraine Wheat | Daily TrojanThe Annenberg Digital Lounge offers a collaborative, digital space for all students at USC beyond the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. The lounge aims to provide students with the opportunity to learn professional programs in order to embrace technology in an environment that encourages experimentation. Different courses and workshops are offered at the lounge, and its first workshop, “Creative Resume Techniques with Adobe InDesign,” will be held on Wednesday. As more employers begin seeking out students with digital skills, creative media manager Erika Hang encourages students to utilize the lounge that was created through the digital literacy initiative implemented by former Annenberg Dean Ernest J. Wilson III. “Our team and our space was born out of the idea of giving Annenberg students digital skills,” Hang said. “Our main goal is being able to offer workshops and software support for a lot of the tools that the students are using.”The lounge tries to improve itself each semester, collecting feedback from students to see what skills and workshops would pique their interest. “Starting last semester, we’ve been offering more data analytical stuff,” Hang said. This fall, the Digital Lounge has included data analytics in their new line-up of programming that includes classes on creative media and personal branding. “We’re trying to always stay up on what’s new, what students want to learn and what’s current,” Hang said. “There’s just so many avenues to get digital skills here and if you can’t take a 10-week course, you can always take a workshop. [We’re] just trying to foster that creativity.” The lounge still maintains its 10-week Adobe certification courses, although they are only offered to Annenberg students or students taking an Annenberg course. But the year-round workshops non-Annenberg students can attend also offer useful skills that are transferable to future job opportunities, according to Hang. “We’re trying to support anything that students are using in the classroom or students would find valuable when they go out to look for a job,” Hang said. “A lot more jobs out there are looking for students with digital skills or it’s a bonus if you know Photoshop, or a bonus if you know coding.”Workshops teach students techniques in topics such as creating better motion graphics, building brands, retouching photos and starting impactful podcasts. Many of the courses are held in the Instructional Media Lab and taught by instructors like Rick Miller, a former Adobe senior solutions engineer for education who is teaching this semester’s Adobe Premiere, InDesign and Photoshop courses. “Having an Adobe Associates Certification sets [students] apart from other people who are vying for the same job,” Miller said. “Having this skillset is going to help them immensely because they can take this creative media and work with it in a way that is easy to be consumed at the endpoint.”The Digital Lounge also offers services through its Help Desk, run by students who are experienced with the different programs. “All of the Digital Lounge employees have different specializations in these programs so students can come here for any kind of help they need on assignments,” said Michelle Whang, a media support specialist and junior communications student. “The lounge is a safe environment for students to come in and work on their creative endeavor. It’s a creative makerspace here.”The “Bring Your Own Device” policy implemented at Annenberg in 2014 aimed to encourage digital literacy by allowing students to use technology in the classroom. Similarly, the courses and workshops held at the Digital Lounge encourage this type of customization in students’ workspaces to foster creativity and learning. “Creativity is the cornerstone behind the idea of the Digital Lounge,” Whang said. “It’s not like a traditional classroom setting, but what the students make of it.”last_img read more

Hamilton wins third straight F1 race at Chinese GP

first_imgMercedes driver Lewis Hamilton of Britain speaks during the press conference after the Chinese Formula One Grand Prix at Shanghai International Circuit in Shanghai, Sunday, April 20, 2014. (AP Photo/Alexander F. Yuan)SHANGHAI (AP) — Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton captured his third straight Formula One race with ease on Sunday, leading from start to finish to win the Chinese Grand Prix.Mercedes showed again that it’s in a different class from its rivals, with Hamilton’s teammate Nico Rosberg taking second place — the third time in four races this season the pair have finished one-two.“This is a team on a roll, that’s for sure,” Hamilton said. “I’m going to be working hard, we’re going to keep working hard because obviously the others are pushing to catch us.”Coming from a mixed background, with a Black father and White mother,Hamilton is often labelled “the first Black driver in Formula One”, although Willy T. Ribbs tested a Formula One car in 1986. He is also the first driver of Black African heritage to win a major race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in any discipline.Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso held off fast-charging Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo to finish third and give his team its first podium finish of the year, with new team principal Marco Mattiacci watching from the garage.Ricciardo was fourth, finishing one place ahead of teammate Sebastian Vettel after the four-time defending world champion was asked by his team to allow the faster Ricciardo to pass for the second race in a row.Hamilton’s win gave him his first career hat trick following his victories in Malaysia and Bahrain. The Briton may have even had a fourth win this season but was forced to retire in the season-opener in Australia after starting from pole position due to engine trouble.With the win, he inched closer to his teammate’s lead in the drivers’ championship with 75 points, just four behind Rosberg.Hamilton, who moved one ahead of Jim Clark for most poles by a British driver with the 34th of his career in Shanghai, was cruising so comfortably at the end of Sunday’s race that he wasn’t even rattled when the checkered flag was mistakenly shown a lap too soon, at the end of lap 55.“That was very strange. I was thinking, ‘Am I seeing things?’ I looked up, I was coming across the line expecting to do another lap and, all of a sudden, I looked for a split second and I saw the flag,” he said.According to F1 regulations, if the checkered flag is shown early, the official end of the race will be the lap before it was shown. On Sunday, that meant the end of lap 54.The only racers this affected were Caterham’s Kamui Kobayashi and Marussia’s Jules Bianchi. Kobayashi had passed the Frenchman on their final lap for 17th place, but their places were reversed in the official results.Hamilton was so far ahead for much of the race, his rivals were left to battle for second best.Rosberg, expected to challenge Hamilton in Shanghai after the pair’s incredibly tight duel in Bahrain, started fourth on the grid and was forced to play catch-up after a slow start immediately dropped him back to seventh.The German methodically tracked down the two Red Bulls and finally passed Alonso on the back straight of the 43rd lap, the Ferrari unable to match the speed of the Mercedes.Rosberg then set his sights on Hamilton but he was by that point too far ahead, finishing nearly 19 seconds clear of the German.“We have the best car,” Rosberg said. “But I was back there, so then catching up was nice with this fast car. It’s a good weapon.”Vettel started third on the grid and briefly moved to second before beginning to fade as his tires wore out. After Rosberg passed him, he was asked to give way to Ricciardo on the 25th lap — a repeat of what happened two weeks ago at the Bahrain GP.Instead of acceding, however, Vettel asked his team what tires Ricciardo was using and when told they were both on mediums, the German responded, “Tough luck.” At the start of the next lap, though, Vettel did make way and finished a distant 24 seconds behind his teammate.Red Bull team principal Christian Horner explained afterward that the team had different tire strategies for the drivers, planning a two-stop race for Ricciardo and a three-stop race for Vettel.“As soon as (Vettel) understood that, he immediately let him through,” he said. “You could see he simply didn’t have the pace to hold him back there. It was pointless.”Vettel, who has qualified behind Ricciardo three times to start the season, agreed with the decision given his struggles Sunday.“I’m not yet where I want to be with the car, but it’s an on-going process,” he said. “Hopefully at the next few races we will make some more steps in the right direction.”Force India had both its drivers finish in the points with Nico Hulkenberg finishing sixth and Sergio Perez taking ninth.Williams driver Valtteri Bottas was seventh, Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen was eighth, and Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kyvat finished in 10th, another impressive showing by the 19-year-old debutant.last_img read more

Camping Now Permitted in Lenape Woods

first_imgAtlantic Highlands – Lenape Woods was not always the appreciated preserved piece of nature it is now. In fact, until the 1990s, most people did not recognize it as anything other than a dump, littering it with glass, paper, cans, and old items they no longer wanted.Now, the woods are approximately 51 well-maintained acres with beautiful waterways, Many Mind Creek and Claypit Creek, trails, plants, trees, and wildlife. The borough is looking to expand awareness of the woods by sharing its treasures with others.For years, the borough prohibited camping in Lenape Woods, only allowing visitors until dusk.A new ordinance permits eligible groups, or “members of any nationally chartered youth group with a demonstrated culture of environmental awareness and conservation,” to camp overnight in the Atlantic Highlands portion of Lenape Woods.The ordinance states: “that group outdoor education for our youth will contribute to the development of environmentally conscious adults who are civically minded, tolerant of others differences and who embrace our nation’s rich diversity at all levels.”Adam Hubeny, Borough Administrator of Atlantic Highlands, said Frederick J. Rast III originally presented the idea seven years ago and has been working diligently to make it happen ever since.“Mayor Rast made a commitment to get this passed when he first took office in 2008,” said Hubeny. “And although most of the Lenape Woods Preserve is located in Middletown Township, it took this long to get on the same page with Middletown as far as rules and regulations and enforcement. Each municipality has passed resolutions supporting the camping in Lenape Woods.”As indicated in the ordinance, camping groups must have at least three adults including at least one registered adult leader who “has the appropriate level of training that the chartering organization requires to super vise outdoor activities.” Rast said, “Once an area is identified and a group comes for ward requesting use, the rules and regulations are already in place and they will need to comply.”
Four teen days before camping, each group must submit an application for permit in person to Dwayne M. Harris, the municipal clerk. Harris will then organize the activities with the adult leader, ensuring the groups take full advantage of the preserve.“This ordinance should be good for groups like the Boy Scouts and/or Girl Scouts but any group meeting the ordinance/rules and regulations criteria can apply for a permit to camp,” said Hubeny.AHNJ.com locates Lenape Woods in two separate areas – Lenape Woods East at the corner of East Highland Avenue and Ocean Blvd., consuming approximately 36 acres, and Lenape Woods West on the corner of Sears Avenue and East Washington Avenue, consuming approximately 15 acres.“The next step in this process is to meet with our environmental commission and scope out an area keeping in mind location within the preserve, access for all campers and emergency responders in case of an emergency,” Hubeny explained. “Police will also have to have quick access if there is a problem at the campsite.”Each camping trip can be no longer than 24 hours; no weekend or full-week trips are allowed. Cooking is acceptable only on “propane cook stoves or commercially prepared charcoal in an above ground charcoal grill or brazier.” Campfires and open flames are prohibited as well.last_img read more

Clothes vendor executed in Albouystown

first_img…previously charged for murder, robberiesPolice in Georgetown are on the hunt for a male suspect who shot and killed a former murder and robbery accused on Thursday in Albouystown, Georgetown.Dead is 26-year-old Collis Collison, a clothes vendor of Lot 68 William Street, Kitty, Georgetown. He was celebrating his birthday on Thursday when he was killed at about 14:45h at Barr Street, Albouystown.Investigations into the fatal shooting are in progress and up to press time, the Police were still hunting the shooter.According to Police reports, Collison was standing on Barr Street, when the suspect approached him brandishing a firearm. The suspect then shot Collison and fled the scene.The Police said the injured man was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital by public spirited citizens. However, he died at about 15:26h while receiving treatment.Dead: Collis CollisonHis body is presently at the GPHC mortuary, awaiting a post-mortem examination excepted to be done today.Collison is a known character to the Police and has been slapped with various charges over the years but was never convicted.Back in May 2011, he was charged for the murder of Linden businessman Albert Joseph, called “Bolo”, who was killed during a robbery at his business place. He was subsequently freed of this charge in November 2014 in the High Court after the trial Judge upheld a no-case submission from his lawyer.Collison was also charged with two counts of armed robbery committed in Linden on Nigel Hescott and Rajindra Tiwari, who were robbed of their gold chains valued $160,000 and $250,000 respectively.The now dead man was also fingered as part of a gang which had been trailing and robbing incoming passengers from the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).The racket was busted in October 2015 when they reportedly traced an off-duty Police Officer, who had picked up a relative from the airport, to his Kitty home. It was reported that having observed a vehicle following him, the off-duty rank inform his colleagues, who then went to his Kitty home and waited for his arrival.The vehicle which had been following the officer from the airport stopped a corner away from the rank’s home and two of three occupants exited. A stand-off subsequent ensued between the ranks who were waiting outside the residence and the bandits. This resulted in two of the perpetrators receiving injuries.Collison was subsequently slapped with two counts of discharging a loaded firearm at the Police as well as possession of an unlicensed .38 revolver and ammunition. However a year later in November 2016, he was freed of these charges as a result of the prosecution’s lack of evidence.Prior to his release, Collison had testified several times in the Commission of Inquiry into the March 2016 Camp Street Prison fire and unrest at the Georgetown penitentiary which resulted in the death of 17 inmates and left several others, including prison officers, injured.last_img read more

South Africa’s children learn to be green

first_imgSouth Africa’s future generations will grow up with a deeper understanding and respect for the environment, thanks to Eco-Schools. (Image: Green Renaissance) MEDIA CONTACTS • Bridget Ringdahl  Eco-Schools programme manager  +27 33 330 3931 or +27 72 741 8223 RELATED ARTICLES • Milk brand cares for cows • SA business urged to adopt schools • Green buildings now the law in SA • Birds get right of way at airport • SA firms turn to green pest controlEmily van RijswijckGrade seven pupils at Seripe Primary School in Mopani, Limpopo province, look with new eyes at the prolific birdlife in their area.After participating in National Birdlife Week as part of their Eco-Schools theme project in 2011, these children now have a basic understanding of how to identify birds and have learnt the value of trees in attracting birds to an area.The school joined the Eco-Schools programme, run by the Wildlife and Environmental Society of South Africa (Wessa) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF-SA), five years ago.It earned its Eco-Schools flag in 2011, an international award given to qualifying schools as a symbol of excellence after successfully maintaining environmental themes for five years.The school is one of 1 200 registered in South Africa with the programme, which is run under the auspices of Wessa.Eco-Schools is an award-winning international programme started 15 years ago by the Foundation for Environmental Education, an NGO promoting sustainable development through environmental education.South Africa joins 51 other countries from around the world in providing school children with this innovative environmental learning programme which slots in perfectly with the normal school curriculum.Elsewhere in Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Morocco and Tunisia have also joined the programme.First introduced in South Africa in 2003 with a membership of 100 schools, Eco-Schools exposed about 500 000 pupils to environmental learning, some for the very first time, during 2011, and is set to keep growing.Twenty-five of the original schools remain with the programme today while half of the schools which have joined up in the last three years are still participating.Boosting schools’ eco-awarenessAccording to WWF-SA, shopping centre investor Pareto Limited and Nedbank’s Green Trust became the national funders in June 2010, after packaging company Tetra Pak had funded Eco-Schools since its inception.The Petroleum, Oil and Gas Corporation of South Africa recently pledged R4.5-million in additional funding, over a three-year period.“We understand the need to preserve our environment for future generations,” said the company’s head of corporate affairs, Kaizer Nyatsumba. “The beauty of the programme lies in the fact that it exposes young people to the importance of responsible environmental custodianship.”Linked to school curriculumThe success and uniqueness of the programme is linked to its alignment to the school curriculum, says Bridget Ringdahl, Eco-Schools programme manager.Eco-Schools supports the national curriculum statements for grades R to nine and grades 10 to 12.“The key is that it provides a framework to enable teachers to highlight aspects of environmental learning that can be found in many of the subjects, giving more meaning to classroom learning.”In addition, many schools align their programmes to national and international awareness campaigns such as National Water Week, World Wetlands Day, Arbor Week and others.To qualify for an award, participating schools have to select a theme and successfully maintain it throughout the year. To qualify for a flag, schools have to maintain the programme for five years.Wessa requires schools to supply a portfolio of the work done showing meaningful links with the curriculum, and relevant action taken. With each year, schools add a new theme, while still maintaining the original theme until they receive the ultimate form of recognition, the international eco-schools flag.In 2011, 64 South African schools received this sought-after accolade.Available themes include resource use; nature and biodiversity; local and global Issues and healthy living, among others.The main theme for 2012 is Sustainable energy for all and is open to schools with international status.The programme is voluntary and any school may join: pre-primary, primary and secondary, as well as schools for children with special needs, home schools and environmental clubs.Birdwatching and water auditsOver the years some innovative eco-projects have seen the light at schools in South Africa, such as a full audit on water usage and wastage at St Nicholas School in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, conducted entirely by pupils.The Dikolobe Primary School in Limpopo received international recognition in 2011 when a German film crew recorded their projects involving vermiculture, permaculture, solar cooking and removal of alien plants. These were also showed off at the recently concluded COP17, in Durban.Where funding is available, Wessa assists schools in less affluent areas to get the programme off the ground. Often, these schools benefit the most from Eco-Schools participation.The experience of pupils at Seripe Primary highlights this point. Pupils in this area are not usually encouraged to walk, hike or explore their local eco-systems, and consequently receive little external stimulation as part of their formal education. Yet, with the bird watching theme, they learned how easy it can be to be aware of environmental issues right on their doorstep.And although birding can be a solitary activity requiring great patience and concentration, the pupils surprised teachers and Wessa coordinators with their growing enthusiasm.Wessa received this feedback from coordinator Shelley Milstein: “It was astounding to see how much they enjoyed going out into nature, and how their eyes were opened to the diversity of birds.”Pupils got more excited with each day, and started to focus not only on the birds, but also on the trees and small animals around them. Besides identifying birds, the school also embarked on gardening, managed to reduce water and electricity consumption, and learned about indigenous trees as part of its Eco-Schools theme for 2011.Important scientific contributionsSome schools, such as Limpopo’s Motholo Lower Primary, are also making important scientific contributions on national level.Pupils at this small rural primary school are currently involved in the South African Observational Environmental Network (SAOEN) programme, a scientific observation project that monitors the long-term influence of climate change on natural systems.As part of the project, pupils have to observe a variety of plants over a period of time, recording the influence of weather and temperature changes on the leafy subjects. Their findings are sent to SAOEN, giving them their first experience of real scientific research.They have been in the Eco-School programme for seven years and studied forest biomes in 2011 as one of their eco-themes.Likewise, Bosko Christian School, near Hermanus in the Western Cape, studied a nearby estuary during National Wetlands Awareness week and noted a decline in the number of frogs after the busy festive season.The school reported back to Wessa that pupils came away with a greater awareness of the frog’s important role as an indicator species in wetlands, and the visible impact humans have on wetlands.The children were also made aware of the Volunteer Western Leopard Toad Project, a unique initiative that ensures the safe passage of the western leopard toad on roads in Cape Town and the surrounding plains during spawning season. The leopard toad is endangered and is a protected species.last_img read more

Socialcast: CEO’s Status Should Be Louder Than Yours

first_imgCognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… steven walling Tags:#enterprise#news#Products#saas Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Nowcenter_img IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Related Posts Socialcast, the enterprise microblogging platform, thinks that HR and C-level executives deserve extra recognition in the corporate status stream. Its new Broadcast Message feature gives announcements by higher-ups priority if they want it, effectively creating the Reply All of the micro-messaging world. For a startup whose entire value proposition is software that transforms work, the idea of enabling preexisting corporate hierarchies is an ill-considered move. Corporate hierarchy is what makes the enterprise tick, no doubt about it. But in communication, what’s needed is reducing noise, not the means to create more of it. For our bet, the best part of enterprise microblogging is that every employee decides what messages they receive. The ability to filter and follow selectively within the company is the feature that makes it more attractive than email. By allowing your boss or HR to bypass your filter and broadcast a message to you in Socialcast, the platform kills what there is to love about a Twitter for the enterprise. Though Socialcast’s powerful content sharing and aggregation abilities go far beyond what Yammer and other competitors in this space offer, this is a step backwards for how 2.0 your enterprise can get with their software. If CEOs want to grab your attention for company-wide announcements, that’s what reply all is for. Who knows, we could be wrong. Broadcasting messages could drive enterprise decision makers — the ones who sign the checks for IT solutions — wild with ecstasy. But for everyone else, any functionality that gives someone else more power to waste your time is a major buzzkill. last_img read more

Work On the Business Instead of In the Business

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now As a leader, you are so mired down with work that there isn’t any hope of every truly being caught up. You can delegate and defer to your hearts delight, but the demands are unrelenting. It can feel like every time you get one activity that needs your attention under control it’s replaced by two more. Running and gunning comes with the territory.If you really want to improve your effectiveness as a leader, you have to make time to work “on” the business instead of “in” the business.Time Away Isn’t Time AwayTime away from work isn’t unproductive time. It’s super-productive time. The time that you spend alone allows you to reflect, to think, to determine priorities, and reset. It’s impossibly difficult to do this heaviest lifting when you are engaged in the day-to-day operational tasks of leading your business unit. The urgencies and the interruptions are too great, your time to short.But taking time away–even a solid day–with no meetings, no phone, and no email gives you the chance to sit with a legal pad and a pen and hit the reset button. It gives you a chance to question your priorities. You can really delve into where you want to take your business unit, what it will take to get there, and what needs to change in order to succeed. Because you are not working in the business doesn’t mean that you aren’t working … it means you’re doing the most important work a leader is required to do.And it takes time away. Quiet time. Time to reflect. Time to think deeply. Time to make the hard calls that only the leader can make.If you feel a little guilty, don’t. Your work will still be waiting for you when you get back. But with a new set of eyes and a fresh perspective, you’ll have a better idea of what the right work is and whether or not what shows up should really command your attention.QuestionsWhy do you avoid taking time away from work?How often do you take time away to reflect, to think, to make big decision?How does quiet time, time alone, allow you to do your best thinking?Why does a leader need to take away?last_img read more
