SEAS to launch two online computer science programs this fall - GW Hatchet SEAS to launch two online computer science programs this fall - GW Hatchet Posted: 18 Apr 2021 10:24 PM PDT Students with no experience in computer science will soon have the chance to learn to code once School of Engineering and Applied Science officials implement two new online programs this fall. SEAS officials will start accepting applications in June for the two online coding programs – the Gateway to Computer Science Certificate and the subsequent master's in applied computer science – which will provide students from any major with additional computing skills and career opportunities. John Lach, the dean of SEAS, said officials created the programs because the computer science industry is growing as the world increases its focus on data, technology and computing. "Traditional computer science degree programs are not able to graduate students at a rat

CLOSE SportsPulse: COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on much of the U.S. economy. How has it impacted college football coaches? According to our annual coaches compensation database, head coaches at Power Five conferences haven't taken a big hit. USA TODAY Surprise performances and unexpected outcomes are anticipated each weekend in the wild world of college football. Even if everyone knows they are coming, guessing when and where they will happen is difficult.   The USA TODAY Sports college football staff — Jace Evans, Paul Myerberg, Brent Schrotenboer, Erick Smith, Eddie Timanus, and Dan Wolken — weigh in with some bold predictions for Week 9 of the season: Jace Evans Texas is just 11-7 since quarterback Sam Ehlinger declared the Longhorns “back” following an upset win over the Georgia Bulldogs in the Sugar Bowl on New Year’s Day 2019. In hindsight, that victory was clearly less a turning point for the program and more an example of the one thing Tom Herman’s teams have

CLOSE Archbishop Stepinac held a virtual basketball workout for college coaches Rockland/Westchester Journal News WHITE PLAINS — Last year, Stepinac grew accustomed to having some of college basketball's biggest names on its sidelines — Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, Kentucky's John Calipari, Villanova's Jay Wright and Georgetown's Patrick Ewing. This year, amid the coronavirus pandemic, college coaches haven't been able to attend open gyms and workouts personally, so Crusaders head coach Pat Massaroni gave them an inside look by live streaming his team's workout. Although Stepinac's sidelines were empty this time around, there were approximately 100 college programs tuned in virtually on Saturday, ranging from high-major Division I teams to nearby local Division III schools.

New London — In the last couple of months, COVID-19 has been advancing across the region, but not on the campus of Connecticut College, where the disease’s seemingly inexorable march has been held in check. The college has succeeded so well because it never let COVID-19 get a foothold, experts say. Since Aug. 17, when it began testing students, faculty and staff, Conn, in partnership with the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, had administered 32,446 COVID-19 tests through Friday, detecting 29 positive cases among students as well as eight among employees, resulting in an exceptionally low positivity rate of 0.11%. The rate was even lower before this past week, during which nine of the student cases and two of the employee cases were detected by 2,554 tests, a rate of 0.43%. By comparison, the state's average seven-day positivity rate, climbing for weeks, stood at 2.5% Friday. On Thursday, the one-day rate had soared to 6.1%.

Tips For Your NYU Stern MBA Application - Poets&Quants Tips For Your NYU Stern MBA Application - Poets&Quants Posted: 31 Aug 2020 12:00 AM PDT Much like New York City itself, NYU Stern has changed significantly over the years. In 2019, Stern released a 'Call to Action,' rebranding with its new slogan: "Change. Dare it. Dream it. Drive it." Just as Stern has taken many steps to enhance its program in a rapidly changing, forward-thinking world, such as doubling down on tech options, the Admissions Committee wants to see analogous motivation in its applicants. Stern's ethos around adaptability, and the premium it puts on cultivating leaders who are nimble, flexible and agile in the face of ambiguity, couldn't be more relevant given the complexities of our current Covid-19 reality. As a Fortuna Admissions coach , tech-consultant and NYU Stern MBA alum, I've worked with countless candidates to deliver a

Oregon could become 1st US state to decriminalize hard drugs - ABC News

Image
SALEM, Ore. -- In what would be a first in the U.S., possession of small amounts of heroin, cocaine, LSD and other hard drugs could be decriminalized in Oregon under a ballot measure that voters are deciding on in Tuesday’s election. Measure 110 is one of the most watched initiatives in Oregon because it would drastically change how the state's justice system treats people caught with amounts for their personal use. Instead of being arrested, going to trial and facing possible jail time, the users would have the option of paying $100 fines or attending new, free addiction recovery centers. The centers would be funded by tax revenue from retail marijuana sales in the state that was the country's first to decriminalize marijuana possession. It may sound like a radical concept even in one of the most progressive U.S. states — but countries including Portugal, the Netherlands and Switzerland have already decriminalized possession of small amounts of hard drugs, according to th

Anthony A. Mestas   | The Pueblo Chieftain Colorado State University Pueblo’s undergraduate elementary teacher preparation program has been named among the top in the country by a nonpartisan, not-for-profit research and policy organization, for strong training in classroom management. The ​National Council on Teacher Quality released this month its ​2020​ ​Teacher Prep Review: Clinical Practice and Classroom Management​, which finds encouraging progress in teacher preparation programs’ adoption of evidence-based classroom management strategies that are universally effective, regardless of student age or the subject being taught. “I am thrilled that the elementary teacher prep program received the highest possible grade in classroom management as part of an elite group of programs,” said Mohamed Abdelrahman, Ph.D. provost and executive vice president of academic affairs at CSU Pueblo. “I want to congratulate Dr. Jeff Piquette as the Associate Dean and Director of the School of Ed
