“I ended up square dancing with Nobel laureates,” one alumnus recalled. “I just witnessed a footnote!” said another. “The day you start as a professor here … people call you as though you are an expert in whatever it is they want you to talk about.”Over the course of its history, Harvard has been home to hundreds of thousands of people who have as many stories to tell. As it celebrates its 375th anniversary, the University is launching Harvard Stories, a video oral-history project that showcases engaging personal narratives from members of the Harvard community.“This project enables Harvard community members to tell their own stories about the impact the University had on them,” said Christine Heenan, vice president for Harvard Public Affairs & Communications. “Harvard Stories is a mosaic of compelling individual tales that reflects the remarkable diversity of talents and accomplishments Harvard has fostered.”For many of the interviewees, the Harvard experience changed expectations — about the people they met, the lessons that they learned, and even the campus that they encountered. The project began recording interviews in February. More than three dozen are already available online, and many more will be released over the next year.”More than just an archive, Harvard Stories uses the power of technology to connect alumni across the map, and across time,” said Tamara Rogers, vice president for Harvard Alumni Affairs & Development. “It gives our community a new way to share their Harvard experiences.”The Harvard Stories project has collected nearly 100 personal tales so far, and it will continue to collect interviews at alumni and campus events throughout the year. By May 2012, the project will expand to include videotaped stories submitted by faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Members of the Harvard community who are interested in telling their Harvard story are encouraged to visit http://stories.harvard.edu/contact to learn more.
Saint Mary’s Student Activities Board (SAB) decided not to reveal the Tostal performer at the annual Midnight Madness to emphasize the healthy competition between classes through games and contests in Angela Athletic Facility on Thursday night.SAB vice president and senior Colleen Burke said though SAB has traditionally revealed the Tostal performer at the conclusion of Midnight Madness, the board opted to create more suspense and excitement about the reveal this year by making the announcement over Snapchat. According to Burke, students can check Snapchat each Thursday after spring break to find out which three country musicians SAB selected for this year’s Tostal.This year’s Midnight Madness attracted an audience with a genuine interest in bonding with classmates, Burke said.“This year we really wanted to focus on having Midnight Madness be its own event,” she said. “In past years, a lot of people have come to Midnight Madness mainly just to find out about the Tostal artist, and they’re not there for the actual event itself.”Burke said the event serves as an integral part of the Saint Mary’s experience.“If we were to take away Midnight Madness and not have it one year, it would just be taking away an opportunity for everyone to celebrate Saint Mary’s,” Burke said. “It’s important for all members of Saint Mary’s to be involved in the activities that go on on campus.”Sophomore Renee Reyes, who participated in the event, said this year’s activities included trivia, giveaways and a singing challenge that engaged attendees.“Everyone in the audience sang along and danced,” Reyes said. “It was so much fun to see everyone jamming out to classics.”Midnight Madness promotes community and encourages teamwork, according to Reyes.“I had a great time with my friends, and I got to bond with the rest of the sophomores,” Reyes said. “I think Midnight Madness is super important because it brings the classes together.”Burke said Midnight Madness distinguishes itself from other SAB events because it simultaneously unifies each class while strengthening overall Saint Mary’s pride.“We have a lot of events during the year that really get the entire campus together, but they don’t necessarily allow the grades to interact and play games with each other,” Burke said. “The whole purpose of it is really to get the whole school together and embrace Saint Mary’s and have a bunch of school spirit.”Senior Colleen Michael, SAB president, said Midnight Madness serves as an honored Saint Mary’s tradition that deserves to be continued.“It is one of those events when if I stop what I am doing for just a moment and look around, I realize how much I love this school and the community that makes it my home,” Michael said. “It brings everyone together, spirit is high, and the enthusiasm is contagious. The more people, the more fun it is.”Michael said Midnight Madness solidifies students’ love for the College by allowing them to interact with one another in different ways than they normally do.“It gives the classes an opportunity to work together on a common goal, it allows them to be proud of their year, and it focuses on supporting each other,” Michael said. “Students are given the opportunity to come together as a community. It is a time for spirit and a little bit of competition.”Tags: Midnight Madness, SAB, Student Activities Board, Tostal
By Dialogo October 08, 2010 On 6 October, the United States announced two million dollars in aid for the implementation of a program to promote compliance with labor laws in Nicaragua, according to the Department of Labor. The “Better Work” program will be implemented in the Central American country by the International Labor Organization (ILO), to which the U.S. government has turned over the funds, a statement indicated. “Nicaragua joins those countries that embrace what is considered a gold standard for the respect of labor rights in the garment sector,” Secretary of Labor Hilda Solís indicated. The program, which was successfully applied for the first time a decade ago in Cambodia, seeks to improve firms’ compliance with labor laws through training courses, but also to increase business sustainability by creating trust and competitiveness in the country. Solís announced the launch of the program in Nicaragua in July.
As credit unions are continuously on the hunt for the attention of the elusive millennial, it’s important to understand what “bait” is needed to attract their generation. Millennials have been credited with both the retraction and expansion of a multitude of industries. Ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft have turned hailing a cab into a thing of the past. Cable subscriptions are going by the wayside for streaming services like Netflix and Hulu to take the lead. While it’s clear that times have changed and show no sign of slowing down, what can credit unions do to remain relevant to the millennial generation?Upgrade your Mobile Experience…Internet accessibility is at a global all-time high, with a growing percentage of millennials solely using their mobile device for internet access. While your website may look great on a laptop, what does it look like on a mobile phone? Proper design should showcase the credit union’s products and services clearly, concisely and easily accessible with just a few taps. Aesthetics and functionality go hand-in-hand in ensuring a seamless user experience; A top-notch mobile experience should place importance on both elements. The same goes for your mobile app and including features such as remote deposit capture, and ATM finders in a user-friendly design.…While Placing Importance on the Member ExperienceThe member experience through all channels is critical. As growing importance is placed on technology and providing an omnichannel user experience, one of the most crucial elements of member satisfaction remains the same: the personal touch credit unions are known for. Even with the ability to complete business digitally, millennials continue to value top notch personal interactions. The security of having a real person close by if any questions or hiccups arise is where credit unions can take their service to the next level. Banking technology should enhance human interactions, not replace them. While millennial members may visit your branches less frequently than other generations, don’t let the member service side slip. A warm smile, genuine conversation and knowledgeable employees available at convenient hours make a world of difference. Simple extras like a coffee bar, phone charging station and welcoming furniture can increase positive perception even further. To connect the mobile and in-person experience, ensure that employees are well versed in all account access options. Doing so will allow employees to teach members of all ages about the credit union’s newest banking technology options to utilize at their own pace. Teach Our StoryIt’s proven that millennials will support companies who support their local communities by keeping money local. They are also more likely to support companies who give back and prioritize charitable giving than past generations. These elements are an advantage of the credit union movement that we already possess. Intertwined into our missions and sole reason for existence are the cooperative principles that our industry is built upon. A little education into the “WHY” of the credit union movement could allow us a vast opportunity to become the primary financial institution in many millennial households. 67SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Alisha Stair Alisha Stair is the Member Relations Consultant forLeague of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates.

“I am very pleased to announce that Glenda International Shipping, our 50/50 JV with the Glencore Group, just sold this 2010-built MR vessel, generating a positive net cash effect of about US$ 18.8 million for this company, since we had already reimbursed the vessel’s bank loan back in October 2019,” Paolo d’Amico, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of d’Amico International Shipping, said. “This deal, in addition to the one concluded at the end of last year for a similar vessel, is also perfectly in line with our long-term objective of controlling a very modern and young product tanker fleet.” As informed, Glenda International Shipping d.a.c. (GIS) signed a memorandum of agreement with an undisclosed buyer for the sale of MT Glenda Meredith, one of its five ships. Italian shipping company d’Amico International Shipping S.A. (DIS) said that its joint venture with Swiss commodity trader Glencore Group has decided to sell a medium range (MR) tanker. Last year, GIS also disposed of Glenda Megan, another MR vessel. The 2009-built ship, now renamed Falcon Bay, is owned by Singapore’s Norse Shipholding, VesselsValue’s data shows. This transaction allows GIS to generate around US$ 18.8 million in cash, net of commissions, having already fully reimbursed the vessel’s bank loan in October 2019, according to DIS. As of 30 April, DIS’ fleet comprised 45.5 double-hulled product tankers with an average age of about 6.9 years for its owned and bareboat chartered-in vessels. The 46,147 dwt MR vessel, built at South Korean Hyundai Mipo shipyard in 2010, will be sold for US$ 19 million.
Team Philippines, however, was not able to sweep all the six wushu-sanda gold medals at stake as Gideon Fred Padua bowed to Truong Giang Bui of Vietnam in the 60-kilogram event./PN “The SEA Games is the only competition I have not won yet,” Mandal previously said. “I have already won golds in other tournaments so I am really going all out in the SEA Games competition.” The Iloilo City native’s gold medal feat in his weight class was true to his promise that he will go all out in the SEA Games competition as he is contemplating retirement from the sport.
