Dealership creates the convertible Challenger that Dodge won’t

first_img advertisement According to Motor Authority, the conversions were done to a standard Challenger and two R/T Scat Pack models, one fitted with the 485-horsepower 6.4-litre HEMI V8; and the other with a 5.7-litre V8 that makes 375 horsepower. All three come with automatic transmissions for optimum cruising.The gray, white, and red cars are listed at US$64,000, US$60,000 and US$56,300, respectively. That means that the conversion of the vehicle to convertible costs about US$16,000 on top of the base price of an automatic Challenger.

CU-Boulder Census Shows Enrollment Tops 25,000

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Sept. 16, 1997 Official census figures at the University of Colorado at Boulder have confirmed predictions of increased enrollment topping 25,000 for the fall semester. The data also show that students are taking heavier course loads than in the previous year. CU-Boulder’s total headcount stands at 25,109, or 487 more than fall 1996, an increase of about 2 percent. Students enrolled in about 326,500 credit hours, an increase of nearly 2.4 percent. Campus enrollment reflects a slightly larger percentage of Colorado residents than last year, with 68.7 percent compared with 68.6 percent residents in 1996. Residents number 17,238 this year, compared with 16,890 last year, an increase of more than 2 percent. “We’re very pleased that CU-Boulder continues to be competitive in attracting new students as well as retaining those already enrolled,” Chancellor Richard L. Byyny said. “These census figures reflect a lot of hard work in student recruitment and retention efforts.” New freshmen contributed to the total enrollment hike with a 7.5 percent increase over 1996. This fall, 4,248 new freshmen enrolled, compared with 3,952 in the previous year. The freshman class is the largest ever, exceeding the previous record, set in 1995, by 66 students. Admissions Director Gary Kelsey said, “As the upturn in the college-bound population takes hold, it is very encouraging that CU-Boulder remains extremely attractive to prospective students both in Colorado and elsewhere.” The increase also can be attributed to improved retention or return rates for undergraduates, a reflection of the university’s continuing emphasis on keeping already-enrolled students in school. Retention rates increased for both resident and non-resident undergraduates. This year, the freshman class reflects a slightly higher percentage of resident students than last year. New freshmen include 56.5 percent residents compared with 55.5 percent last year. Undergraduates continue to dominate total enrollment at CU-Boulder. Undergraduates account for 20,437 of total enrollment at CU-Boulder, with graduate students totalling 4,672. Undergraduates increased by nearly 3 percent, while graduate enrollment decreased slightly from last year’s levels. Nationally, graduate enrollments typically lag when the economy is strong. The number of students transferring from other colleges also increased this year with 1,491 new transfers, representing a 2 percent hike. Among schools and colleges, the largest percentage increases in total enrollment were seen by graduate business (8 percent) and music (12 percent). Increases also occurred in architecture and planning, arts and sciences, undergraduate business, education, engineering and applied sciences, journalism and mass communication, and law. Last week, Byyny announced an allocation of $519,000 from new tuition revenues to help schools and colleges handle the enrollment increases. He also is considering additional funding for other top-priority needs resulting from larger numbers of students.last_img read more

Speaking at the event, he said that as we aspire to move speedily towards UHC, we must strengthen the preventive, promotive and positive health concepts. He also said some radical new changes and innovations need to be done to achieve health for all, and health in all. “Let us involve all Government  Ministries/Departments at the Centre and States, along with the non-state actors and organisations/institutions to engage them into the health agenda in a constructive, smart and intelligent manner”. Since health is a multi-sectoral, multi-dimensional, layered, and a complex sector, we need multiple partners for achieving the agenda of ‘Health For All’, he added.Choubey stated that the commitment for ‘Health For all’ is clearly seen from the Prime Minister’s address at the UNGA earlier this year where he highlighted four pillars for universal healthcare and gave the blueprint of how India plans to achieve the same. He added that people’s well being shall lead to global well being.Sudan congratulated and thanked all the States and UTs for their efforts, which made possible the progress under HWCs and PMJAY. She stated that India has taken significant steps towards UHC by means of NHP 2017, Ayushman Bharat (with HWCs and PMJAY), the NMC Act, banning of e-cigarettes, approving 22 new AIIMS, up-gradation of 157 district hospitals as medical colleges, etc. She further said that while the stage has been set for expanding UHC,  we need to still address several challenges viz. expanding population, increasing and diversifying disease burden, devising different models for urban healthcare, accountability through social audits, engaging the private sector through effective partnerships etc. The three Policy Labs held today have helped us gain further clarity on the way forward, she added.Dr Vinod Paul, Member, NITI Aayog applauded the progress made under Ayushman Bharat. He said it is as much a time to celebrate as to aggressively aspire for strengthening UHC models of effective delivery and also to push for the same. He stressed on the importance of health financing by the centre and states; infrastructure in terms of hospitals and number of beds/1000 population and building capacity of HR at all levels i.e. general practitioner to specialists to nurses and paramedical staff.Besides the awards, the event also saw the release of the CPHC Booklet for AB-HWCs, a Synthesis Report of Regional Workshops on AB-HWCs, Oral Healthcare Guidelines, AB-PMJAY 2020 Calendar and launch of the revamped AB-HWC portal.Universal health coverage (UHC) aims that ‘all people have access to needed promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services, of sufficient quality to be effective, while also ensuring that people do not suffer financial hardship when paying for these services’. In December 2012, the United Nations passed a landmark resolution endorsing universal health coverage. In September 2015, the achievement of UHC was enshrined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a key target to be reached by 2030. UHC Day, first commemorated on December 12, 2014, marks the anniversary of the landmark UN resolution. In 2017, December 12 was officially designated as International Universal Health Coverage Day by the United Nations. In Sept 2019, in the backdrop of United Nations General Assembly, there was a high level meeting on UHC (UNHLM), where world leaders committed to advance UHC.Also present at the award ceremony were, Dr Sanjay Tyagi, DGHS, Dr Poonam Khetarpal Singh, RD-WHO SEARO, Dr Henk Bekedam, WHO Representative India and Vandana Gurnani, AS&MD (NHM) with the Health Secretaries and Mission Directors from the States along with other senior officers of MoH&FW and representatives of CSOs, NGOs and development partners.

Schools to Celebrate Jamaica Day February 25

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Jamaica Day 2011 will be celebrated on Friday, February 25 with a potpourri of activities in schools islandwide under the theme – ‘Celebrating Jamaica: Feasting on our Heritage’. Director, Culture in Education Programme, in the Ministry of Education, Mrs. Amina Blackwood Meeks, told JIS News that, “Jamaica Day 2011, is for us, a very exciting project to be working on. Every year we have a different theme and this year the theme touches so many different aspects of the curriculum and so many different aspects of our national life and culture.” “As a people we like to eat and we are blessed to have so many different kinds of culinary treats from so many different aspects of our culture…so we want our students to understand the foods we eat and the history and sociology that is tied up in all these foods. Secondly, what is the technology that is linked to the way foods are prepared. How did that technology emerge? How has it changed and why and what is the impact of these changes on the culture?” she said. Mrs. Blackwood Meeks also emphasised that one of the objectives of Jamaica Day is to ensure that all stakeholders understand the importance of food security. “We want our children and the entire nation to understand that the whole business of our food security is in our hands. We also want our students and our people to get an understanding or deepen their understanding on the role of agriculture in our economic and social well being and we want, very critically, to grow our respect for the people who work on the land to feed us,” she argued. She pointed out that parents, vendors, students and other stakeholders are usually very excited about the Jamaica Day celebrations. “We have been overwhelmed. There are people who now tell us that they know when it is Jamaica Day, because they see all the students going to school in their Jamaica colours and that’s just one symbolic representation. But we have schools where the parents and the vendors get involved in Jamaica Day and those schools report to us that, as a result of Jamaica Day, they have deepened their association with the communities”, she noted. According to Mrs. Blackwood Meeks, the activities for Jamaica Day will vary depending on the size of the school, where it is located and the available resources. “As a result, some schools will have an extended devotion and a lecture or panel discussion and that’s their Jamaica Day at the minimum. At maximum, some schools have their flag raising ceremonies, they invite other schools to come in and participate with them, and they have displays, panel discussions, and a closing activity which can be anything from a concert to an awards ceremony,” she  explained. Sydney Pagon Agricultural High School in St. Elizabeth will be the focus school this year, due to its close links with the Jamaica Day theme.

Approximately 10,000 students have benefitted from non-traditional teaching methods, aimed at improving their learning patterns, under a $19.4 million initiative undertaken at the Hope Zoo in St. Andrew.The engagement, an education project tour, was jointly implemented by the Ministry of Education, Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF), and Hope Zoo Preservation Foundation, with financing from the Petro Caribe Development Fund.It targeted children, aged three to 17, who were enrolled in public early childhood institutions, primary schools, and high schools, as well as youngsters with special needs and wards of the State.The project provided the youngsters with an opportunity to visit the Hope Zoo, free of cost, from Monday to Thursday.Managing Director of JSIF, Scarlette Gillings, said the tour experience “provided integrated learning that taught children how to carefully and respectfully interact with animals, the environment and their peers.”Mrs. Gillings was addressing the closing ceremony for the Alternative Livelihoods and Skills Development Hope Zoo Landscape Training Project, held at the zoo, on Tuesday, May 13.Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Petro Caribe Fund, Dr. Wesley Hughes, thanked the Hope Zoo proprietors for “giving us the opportunity to spend money in line with the objective of the fund,” noting that each year, seven per cent of what is generated as surplus from the Petro Caribe Fund, is allocated to the Government for grants to be used for social projects.“This is one project that has great benefit for learning and for civilizing the population in terms of (how to treat) the environment, animals and each other. So, it has great social value. Social capital can be built up by supporting a project like this and it gives great value for the future. Therefore, we saw it as something worthy of funding,” he said.Young persons from several innercity communities benefited from the Hope Zoo Landscape Training Project, which was funded by the World Bank at a cost of $3.34 million.The individuals, who are now certified by the HEART Trust/NTA, received training over a two-month period in landscaping, ornamental horticulture, and land preparation.

Cisco CEO dominates on disruption

first_img Justin Springham LIVE FROM CES 2015: Only 40 per cent of today’s major companies will exist “in any meaningful way” ten years from now due to the impact of major technological change fuelled by the Internet of Things. That was one of the messages Cisco CEO John Chambers conveyed in a keynote session this morning titled “Fast Innovation – Disrupt or be Disrupted.”Chambers shared a stage with Comcast Cable president and CEO Neil Smit, and Bosch chairman Werner Struth, but it was the Cisco boss who characteristically delivered the most memorable soundbites and insight into the changing tech world.“If we all run our company in the future as we’ve run it in the past we’ll need three new CEOs. And our governments need to do the same” he commented.“Change is really hard but it’s going to be required for survival. There’s a lot of very high rewards and clearly a lot of challenges, but the digitisation of every company is going to require that change… You watch a great company like Walmart have to reinvent itself virtually and physically to survive – their CEO knows they have to move dramatically or even the most powerful company in the world will get left behind.”Chambers reflected on the restructuring Cisco has undertaken recently in an effort to ensure the company remains a major player in the tech space. “We’ve changed more in the last year ready for the future than we have changed in the last 5 years. We laid off 6,000 people and hired back another 6,000… Long-term planning at Cisco is now three years.”But Chambers warned success isn’t just about adopting new technology. “You have to change people and culture too. The tech might actually be the easiest part… We need to think with more of an entrepreneurial spirit… we have to think more like startups.”Chambers also touched on the need to understand security and privacy issues around “digitising everything.”And he was asked which countries are best positioned to react to the changing environment: Chambers cited German chancellor Angela Merkel’s strategy, while singling out India within the world’s emerging markets. Israel was also high on Chambers’ list, who added he wouldn’t bet against France – “They are in tough economic times but their leadership understands they need to move fast and I’d not be surprised to see them digitise quickly.” Tags HomeCES 2015 Post Cisco CEO dominates on disruption Previous ArticleAbsent T-Mobile boss Legere makes mark on CESNext ArticleBlackBerry head talks-up turnaround progress, unveils IoT play AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 07 JAN 2015 Author Justin manages the editorial content for the Mobile World Live portal and award-winning Mobile World Live TV service.

Allen maintains Schwab Cup Championship lead

first_imgSCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Michael Allen held onto the lead Saturday in the Champions Tour’s season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship, and playing partner Bernhard Langer pulled within a stroke to easily remain in position to take the points title. Allen shot a 1-under 69, making six birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey in breezy conditions on Desert Mountain’s Cochise Course. He had a 12-under 198 total. The 56-year-old Scottsdale resident birdied the par-3 11th to open a six-stroke lead, then played the next four holes in 4 over. He rebounded with a birdie on the par-3 17th and parred the par-5 18th. “I didn’t really know what my lead was,” Allen said. “It probably would have been a good idea to look at a board at that point, but I was just trying to do what I’ve been doing all week, which is just try and hit good shots, make birdies and pars. I don’t think my strategy would have changed any.” Langer birdied the final two holes for a 68. The 58-year-old German star is competing with Colin Montgomerie and Jeff Maggert for the Charles Schwab Cup points title and a $1 million annuity. Langer began the week third in the standings, 66 points behind Montgomerie and 27 behind Maggert, in a bid to win the title for the second straight year and record third time overall. “Obviously, I’m in a unique situation this week where I’m sort of keeping one eye on what’s happening there with Monty and Maggert and I’m trying to win the tournament at the same time,” Langer said. With players receiving a point for every $500 earned in the $2.5 million tournament, Langer started $33,000 behind Montgomerie and $13,500 behind Maggert. With their current positions, Langer would earn $254,000, Montgomerie $40,500, and Maggert $34,000. Langer also is in position to top the money list. Montgomerie had a 71 and was tied for 18th in the 30-man field at 1 under. Maggert was tied for 21st at even par after a 71. The runner-up in the points competition will receive a $500,000 annuity, and the third-place finisher will get a $300,000 annuity. “Right now it’s looking good and it’s still a shootout for the title as well,” Langer said. “Michael played phenomenal on the front and wheels came off a little bit in the middle there, early back nine, and then he pulled himself together again. It’s still anybody’s ball game at this point, the tournament.” Allen made a double bogey on the par-4 12th after driving into the desert. “I just think let up for a shot there and it kind of, it really got me. Is that what happened carrying on? Who really knows.I felt like I overcame it all right and I didn’t feel like, ‘Oh, boy, I’m uptight and not doing well.’ I kind of just tried to shrug it off and kind of keep moving forward.” He bogeyed the par-3 13th, then topped a long-iron approach into the water on the par-4 15th and holed a 10-footer to escape with bogey. “I was a little out of sorts and probably just didn’t go through the routine quite properly,” Allen said. “I don’t know because it was a perfect number. … I guess it happens once in a while in golf.” He made an 18-foot birdie putt on 17, and missed a birdie chance on 18 when he pulled his 8-footer to the right. “I feel good,” Allen said. “I felt like I just lost my swing a little bit there and maybe really my focus more than my swing.” Allen began the day with a two-stroke lead after opening with rounds of 65 and 64. He won the last of his seven victories on the 50-and-over tour in October 2014. Mark O’Meara, Stephen Ames and Billy Andrade were tied for third at 8 under. O’Meara shot 66, Ames 67, and Andrade 70. Ames was the last player to get into the field, jumping from 31st to 30th on the money list with a ninth-place tie last week at Newport Beach.last_img read more
