What parents should do to help students prepare for the first…

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.,As the school year begins to wind down, high school seniors – and those who care about them – typically have their eyes on two prizes: getting into college and graduating from high school.While both milestones are worthy of celebration, there’s much more that students and parents should do after those two milestones are reached.That’s the message of our new book, “How to College: What to Know Before You Go (and When You’re There),” co-authored with Andrea Malkin Brenner, an education consultant, and former program director and sociology professor at American University. The recommendations in our book are based on two decades of teaching and designing programs for thousands of first-year college students, such as “The American University Experience,” a course that helps new students adjust to university life.We also spoke to college faculty and staff about the many ways that new students arrive on campus underprepared for their first semester of college and incorporate tips from college students about what they wish they had known when they first arrived on campus.Knowing what to expect can make a major difference in a student’s psychological well-being. Many first-year college students report feeling “stressed most or all of the time,” regardless of where they go to college. A national survey of first-year college students conducted by the JED Foundation, which studies college students’ mental health issues, found that students who feel emotionally unprepared for college were more likely to report poor academic performance and negative college experiences.In recognition of how stressful the first year of college can be, here are five things that we believe can help ease the transition.1. Make it OK to ask for helpWhile new college students may be intent upon gaining independence, it’s important to stress that knowing when to ask for help is actually a sign of maturity. Along those lines, it’s important to encourage students to seek out the various resources that might be available on campus, such as a counseling center, financial aid office or wellness center. Students who need it should also seek out academic support and tutoring programs. There are also programs to support students with disabilities, as well as diversity and inclusion programs for students who may not feel welcome on campus.Students should be encouraged to research the support systems that exist on campus before leaving home instead of waiting until they arrive.2. Develop empathyParents and soon-to-be college students should discuss the time when the parent first left home and what the challenges were. By discussing what worried or excited the parent the most, and what the parent wishes they would have known before moving out, the parent and student can develop a better understanding and bond over the similarities and differences of their experiences, regardless as to whether the parent attended college.3. Discuss your expectationsThe way that parents communicate their expectations can affect college students’ self-esteem.In our book, we suggest several prompts for things to discuss that range from personal safetyto religious observance away from home. Other topics include how often parents and their children who are in college will communicate with each other, to how the student should obtain health insurance and budget money.Having explicit conversations with supporting adults will help prepare first-year students to more confidently face the challenges they encounter on their own without parental support (such as the first time a student experiences an illness or injury in college) and reduce the chance of family conflicts that arise from differing expectations.For instance, disputes can arise from something as simple as what to do on move-in day. We’ve found that many parents see move-in day as a last special day together, while students often view it as the first day in their new community, not a time for family togetherness. In our book, we recommend that students and their families discuss their expectations about move-in day. Who will be present? Will a parent help unpack and make the bed, or will the family leave once you are unpacked?Students and parents should also discuss their expectations about academic work. Will the student provide frequent reports? Do the parents understand that college professors and deans do not communicate with parents about grades?4. Emphasize what professors will expectExpectations in college vary starkly from what students are expected to do in high school.LStockStudio from www.shutterstock.comCollege level work comes with a new set of standards and expectations that are starkly different from what students are accustomed to in high school. Anticipating these higher standards can save students the time and trouble of finding out these things the hard way after the fact.High school students can often count on reminders about when assignments are due, and high school teachers provide frequent feedback about how students are doing in class. In college, students must keep up with their work on their own. A midterm exam and final paper might be the only grades a student receives in a semester. For those reasons, students should plan to visit their professors during office hours to speak about their progress.The writing required of college students is also vastly different from that required in high school. In high school, most writing is expository – explaining what you know. In college, most writing will be persuasive – making original claims and providing supporting evidence. We recommend that before leaving for college, students consider the types of assignments they’ve been asked to do in high school. Do they have experience writing persuasive papers? They should also consider the feedback they’ve received on their written work. What do teachers say they need to improve? Have they been told they write passionate opinions but need to work on supporting their claims? Students should set a goal to move forward in their writing, and plan to discuss their goal with their professors in office hours before the first paper is due.Plagiarism and cheating is also dealt with differently in college. In high school, teachers might handle cheating and plagiarism themselves. But in college, plagiarism and cheating violate the school’s academic integrity code or honor code and result in larger penalties – including failing a course, suspension, academic probation, or in some cases, expulsion.5. Expect mistakes, encourage resilienceFaculty and staff expect first-year students to make rookie mistakes as they get familiar with the demands of college.Students don’t need to have it all figured out when they arrive on campus. Chances are new students miss an assignment deadline, lose something of importance, fail a test, or sleep in and miss a class during their first semester. Assure your almost-college student that mistakes are part of learning and that mistakes are not only OK, but also expected.It is the resilience that students show – that is, the ability to adjust to circumstances in the face of adversity and own up to their mistakes – that is a hallmark of being a responsible adult.Editor’s Note: Andrea Malkin Brenner, co-author of “How to College: What to Know Before You Go (And When You’re There),” co-authored this article.Lara Schwartz, Director, Project on Civil Discourse, American University School of Public Affairs. This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

These neighbouring terrace homes are owned by two generations of one family. Both houses were in need of repair and update. HOUSE House is a single building that extends both homes. They are separate homes within one architecture. The new structure runs north/south while the original houses run east/west. The fence between each terrace slides away to create one large backyard.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsAustralia has the largest houses in the world. Melbourne is flat, with very low density. There are few topographical constraints to force homes to have a small footprint. This is unfortunate as many of the best homes around the world are modest in size and maximise what precious outdoor space there is. In Australia we go wide and low. We pancake our homes. We eat up our outdoor space. Often people move to the suburbs under the false logic that they will have an abundance of open space and room for kids to play; however the enormous size of houses now makes this a convenient myth rather than a true outcome. This results in car dependence and children’s isolation from a rich and diverse urban community (as kids don’t tend to drive that much).Save this picture!© Peter BennettsWith HOUSE House we deliberately went vertical. We stacked spaces 3 levels high. We maximised the backyard on a small site. In cities like Tokyo, London, Amsterdam and many more, living vertically is a way of life that generates unique housing while also making the most of a densely packed urban condition. It creates a vibrant way of life that sprawl and car dependence could never achieve. But what if we introduce a footprint restriction beyond what is required? What if we build a tall thin structure that maximises the modest backyard? We produce spaces that, though familiar in many parts of the world, are unfamiliar in Australia; tall, cavernous spaces with light cascading from above. Each space different in personality and function so that the modest home can adapt to the various complex moods of its occupants.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsAndrew Maynard Architects generally attempt to avoid crashing new structures into old. With HOUSE House we deliberately created two separate forms. We respect the twin Victorian terraces. We repair and restore them. We do not extrude or copy the original as this only ends in an odd tumor. The new structure is built across the rear of the terraces. A clear gap remains between the two. Weather is kept out of this cavernous space by glass infills. This is where you rise and spin up the spiral stair, interacting with both the aged brick of the terrace and the cedar of the new. We’ve avoided using new synthetic, shiny or plastic materials. The materials have had a past life. The new form is clad entirely in cedar. Raw steel plate and detailing describes the openings between structures and the threshold between old and new. Dark plywood paneling rises through the light-filled void between the structures. We strategically use mirror on the cabinetry in the dining area to make the space feel large while giving the illusion that light is coming from both sides and that we are surrounded by garden.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe key to making a modest-sized home flourish is to provide a number of spaces with various personalities. The active family/living spaces don’t need to be large, yet they must have loose boundaries. The original front sitting room is retained. After this the living spaces can open from the dining room to the rear fence. The side fences can both be opened to let outdoor activity spill beyond the living area. The kitchen bench continues through the rear glass wall. The inbuilt barbecue sits on the end of the bench. The levels above the living areas provide quiet contemplative spaces. Each space is connected with both the rear yard and the internal lightwell.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsLike all of our buildings sustainability is not the narrative, it is a core responsibility in the same way that lighting and plumbing are. All new windows are double glazed. Glass roofs can be thermally challenging therefore we have used high performance glass with automated louvres over so that sunlight stops before it hits the glass, not after. There’s no green house effect here. The owners can adjust the louvres at anytime between full sunlight and complete block out. Louvres to the south of the lightwell are automated to allow the space to quickly vent should heat build up. High performance insulation has been used in the new walls and roof. The existing terrace roofs have also had an insulation upgrade. Solar panels cover the roof.Save this picture!© Michael OngOn the cedar boundary wall we’ve painted a graphic. Melbourne has some of the best street artists in the world and thankfully they donate their work to the city within its numerous laneways. Though street art is welcome throughout Melbourne tagging is also prevalent and it tends to be more destructive. Tagging is to be expected on almost any exposed wall. Most tagging is drawn with black spray paint. To combat this we introduced a black graphic to the facade that either makes the tag invisible or alternatively can be quickly painted over to discourage additional tagging. Will this tactic work or will it simply offer a greater incentive? We don’t know? Most importantly we engage with tagging, one of the ubiquitous parts of the city, rather than fortifying ourselves from it. The graphic used is the child-like image of a suburban home. Here we see the overlap of two distinct approaches to the single family house; the stereotypical home overlaid on the import. If you look closely elsewhere in the house you will find numerous “Easter Eggs” following the same theme.Save this picture!First & Second Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessKickstarter: New Model Library in AfricaArticlesFrancisco Perez Anampa School / Architecture For HumanitySelected Projects Share 2012 CopyHouses•Australia “COPY”last_img read more

Newspapers confiscated under February 2000 press code

first_img News Convicting “petrolgate” journalist of defamation would be disastrous, RSF says to go further TogoAfrica News 6.08.02 – Newspapers confiscated under February 2000 press codeThe latest issues of two weeklies, Agoo Nami and Nouvel Echo, wereconfiscated on 2 and 3 August respectively on the orders of the InteriorMinister, General Marcel Sizing Walla, for allegedly publishing “falsestatements”.The two newspapers had picked up reports posted on the Internet by aTogolese opposition group based in Brussels stating that PresidentGnassingbé Eyadéma and his family had been reported by the US news magazineForbes in its listing of the biggest international fortunes as having a”colossal” fortune” of US$4.5 billion. The weeklies said that this fortune,allegedly hidden in tax havens, would suffice to pay off unpaid salariesand pensions, eliminate the internal debt and relaunch the national economy.The authorities have indicated that they intend to file suit against the twopublications under the new press code adopted on 23 February 2000._________________________________________________________________Three newspapers seized for articles on human rights10.04.02 – Another two newspapers seizedA few days after “La Tribune du peuple”, two weekly newspapers were seized for publishing “false statements”. On 8 April 2002, several hundred copies of “Motion d’information” were seized for publishing a story saying that a dozen opposition students escaped “a wave of planned arrests”. On 9 April, several thousand copies of Regard were confiscated, following an article on massive human rights violations accusations in Togo by Amnesty International. According to the newspaper, the case was dropped at the NATO Commission on Human Rights in Geneva because Togo was supported by other “countries violating human rights”._________________________________________________________________ August 6, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspapers confiscated under February 2000 press code Receive email alerts March 11, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Togolese authorities urged to lift newspaper’s four-month suspension TogoAfrica News Help by sharing this information Organisation Togo court upholds “baseless and disproportionate” newspaper closures News March 8, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Togo 08.04.2002 – Opposition newspaper seizedIn a letter to Interior Minister General Sizing Walla, Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières – RSF) protested the seizure of nearly 2,000 copies of the newspaper “La Tribune du Peuple”. “Every year in Togo, several thousand copies of private newspapers are seize and confiscated or destroyed by police,” said RSF Secretary-General Robert Ménard. “In this specific case, we fear the government is using repeated seizures to nip in the bud a two-month-old newspaper that is close to the opposition.” RSF has demanded a reform to Press Code provisions that allow the minister of the interior and security “to order the seizure by decree of copies of any publication whose contents constitute a press offence”.According to information collected by RSF, on 4 April 2002, the interior minister ordered the seizure of copies of “La Tribune du Peuple” for “offensive comments”. Kodjo Afatsao Siliadin, the newspaper’s editor and author of the article in question, has gone into hiding. The day before, the newspaper criticised the treatment by three agents of the Togo Armed Forces (FAT) of a blacksmith accused of theft.RSF has also raised fears about death threats repeatedly aimed at Lucien Djossou Messan, news editor of the weekly “Le Combat du Peuple”. In its 2 April edition the newspaper said that, “for some time, real and specific death threats” had been made against the editor. RSF recalls that Lucien Messan had been sentenced on 5 June 2001 to twelve months in prison for “falsehoods and use of falsehoods.” He was freed in a presidential pardon after five months of imprisonment.

He has been detained since 23 June 2006.“We call for Zahidov’s immediate release, especially as the reasons for which he is being held are above all political,” the press freedom organisation said. “The OSCE has been voicing its support for him since 2006. If the authorities want to show they are interested in protecting free expression, releasing Zahidov would be a good start.”Zahidov already staged two hunger strikes in July and October 2007. He is demanding to be transferred to a hospital for treatment but the authorities at N14 prison, where he is being held, and the prison doctors have refused. His wife, Rena Zahidova, said: “His condition is deteriorating, he can no longer walk, but he is pressing on with his hunger strike.”Zahidov, who works for the opposition daily Azadlig, was sentenced on 4 October 2006 to three years in prison for “possession of drugs for personal consumption” under article 234.1 of the criminal code, although no evidence was produced to support this charge during the trial.

Home flippers are having trouble selling in a market with weakening retail buyer demand, and that is forcing them to hold onto properties longer than they would like. This trend, in turn, is causing the flippers to exercise caution in the acquisition of new flips.The good news is that downward trend in home flipping reversed itself in early 2019, with the home-flipping rate jumping to a seven-year high in February. That’s a strong positive sign for the health of the overall housing market going forward for the remainder of the year.What does your typical day look like as VP of Market Economics? I analyze data—both internal Auction.com data and external market data—and figure out what the data is telling us about the marketplace. Then, I get to take that data-driven message and tell it in innovative ways. That storytelling takes several forms, but primarily through written content, interactive visuals, and in speaking to various audiences. One of the most important audiences is the internal business owners and decision-makers at Auction.com, to help them make the most informed, data-driven business decisions. Sellers and buyers utilizing the Auction.com platform comprise another important audience for my data-driven content about the market. It’s important for both sides of the transaction to be armed with solid information that will promote transparency and reduce friction in our marketplace. My job consists of communicating data-based anaysis to the larger mortgage and real estate industries, helping them gain insight particularly into the distressed disposition niche of the housing market.What are the key factors impacting inventory and millennial homebuying in the current market? The interplay between inventory and demand from millennials represents one of the most fascinating chickenand-egg scenarios of the real estate recovery. Millennials represent a critical group of imminent homebuyers, and yet their potential has remained latent for a variety of reasons, ranging from high levels of student debt to later-in-life homebuying triggers such as getting married and having children.The most significant contributors to the large homeownership deficit for the under-35 generation are concrete and psychological ripple effects from the Great Recession. The psychological effects have caused homeownership to lose its luster for many millennials, and the concrete effects havemade it much more difficult for millennials to get their foot in the door even if they want to become homeowners.On the inventory side, homebuilders are also impacted by these effects, causing a deficit in inventory built over the last seven years of the recovery. Builders got burned with an overhang of too much inventory in the previous up-cycle and have therefore been cautious in ramping up their production in this time, especially in light of the muted demand for homeownership from millennials and other generations.Additionally, the housing crash decimated the ranks of construction workers, and many in that field have since found other jobs. That has pushed up construction costs and limited thetype of inventory that is profitable for builders.With the housing market witnessing low mortgage rates and better inventory this spring, how do you see the market continuing to evolve this year?The buyerseller pendulum swung back toward buyers in the second half of 2018, but it’s hard to tell if that swing is continuing or if the recent drop in mortgage rates will halt it. We saw a similar swing toward a buyer’s market play out in 2014 when mortgage rates also rose above 4% for an extended stretch. When mortgage rates then dropped, the market quickly flipped right back in favor of sellers in 2015. However, I don’t think we’ll see such a knee-jerk response toward a seller’s market this time around. The market will still be more favorable for buyers in 2019 than it was in 2017, but I also don’t think we’ll see a full-fledged buyer’s market where homes are sitting on the market for six months or more in most areas of the country.Do you see a recession on the horizon in the near-term? There is a good chance of at least a mild to medium-sized recession in the next couple years. Housing certainly will be impacted to some degree, but it will not likely be the catalyst for the recession nor bear the brunt of the pain from it. Looking back at previous recessions, the typical impact on housing is a modest drop in home prices—somewhere in the range of a 1% to 5% drop depending on the local market, not the 30% to 50% drop we saw triggered by the Great Recession.

The police alleged that Khalid had hatched a conspiracy along with several groups to appeal to various Muslim minority groups to block the roads and public places in Delhi during the visit of President Donald Trump “so that a propaganda may be flashed at international forum that the Muslim minority community in India are being tortured”. It was further alleged that consequent to the conspiracy, riots started in various parts of North East Delhi during February 23-25.Appearing for Khalid before the Additional Sessions Court, Karkardooma, his lawyer Trideep Pais opposed the remand submitting that the police case was nothing but an “empty rhetoric”.Pais submitted that Khalid was always cooperating with the investigation and presented himself for interrogation whenever asked to. So, there was no flight risk. He was interrogated for five hours on July 31 and the whole day on September 13. Still, the counsel submitted, the police could not find anything incriminating against Khalid.Pais further submitted that Khalid’s speeches always appealed for peace and to uphold the Constitution. There was nothing objectionable in them.”Being opposed to the CAA is not a crime”, Pais submitted.The lawyer further said that a frenzy was being created against Khalid. Considering the arguments of both sides, Additional Sessions Judge, Amitabh Rawat ordered the remand, stating :”Considering the nature of the case and the role of the accused Umar Khalid that has surfaced so far regarding the conspiracy and involvement in anti-CAA/NPR/NRC protest with the support of several radical groups/organization resulting in riots and the fact that the custodial interrogation has been sought of the accused Umar Khalid for confronting the huge technical data as well as material that has come during the investigations, I deem it fit that, for having an effective and proper investigation to allow the present application for seeking police custody remand of the accused Umar Khalid for ten days”.The Court ordered that he should be medically examined every 24 hours and that his lawyers, Trideep Pais, Sanya Kumar and Rakshanda Deka, should be permitted to confer with him for a period not exceeding half an hour at the beginning of the police custody and thereafter daily during the police custody remand at the venue to be communicated to the counsel.Considering the apprehension to the safety of the life of Khalid, the Court ordered that whenever he is taken out of the office, the DCP should make proper arrangements for his safety and security.Umar Khalid remanded to 10 days police custody in case related to alleged conspiracy in Delhi Riots.#UmarKhalid #DelhiPolice pic.twitter.com/Xcrt2YW1eV— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) September 14, 2020 Click here to download orderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more

Woman arrested with $6,000 worth of stolen coins in baby stroller, police say

first_imgBakersfield Police Department (BAKERSFIELD, Calif.) —  Police in Southern California said they were concerned when they saw a woman struggling to push her baby in a stroller, but they got a heck of a surprise when they went to check on her.Officers in Bakersfield, California, just north of Los Angeles, said they approached the woman to “check her welfare” but they quickly realized that is wasn’t a baby she was struggling with. She was actually totting thousands of dollars in stolen coins from a recent home invasion, according to the Bakersfield Police Department.Police shared images from the scene via Twitter on Friday, showing the stolen coins, which they alleged she acquired in a burglary.“Two BPD detectives saw a woman struggling to push a baby stroller,” the department said in a tweet Friday. “They went to check her welfare and discovered the stroller didn’t contain a child… but instead held over 6K in coins taken in a burglary.”Fritz was arrested on burglary in the first degree, a felony, as well as other charges, including obstructing the peace and possession of a controlled substance, court records show.She was being held on $65,000 bail as of Sunday afternoon and was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.It’s unclear if Fritz has retained an attorney.
