Modern Greek VCE enrolments low

first_imgAccording to the VCAA, Modern Greek studies are not high on the agenda for VCE students, with only 277 students enrolled this year. However, despite the low numbers, it is a slight increase from 2013’s recorded enrolments of 274 students.The most popular languages in 2014 among VCE students were French at 1,869 enrolments, Chinese as a first language with 1,634 and Japanese as a second language with 1,014.With Asian languages high on the government’s agenda and foreign minister Julie Bishop promoting the New Colombo Plan, an initiative granting Australian students the opportunity to study at Asian Universities, it’s not surprising to see two Asian languages in the top three.

Rep. Herrera Beutler hosts phone town hall

first_imgThere was no shouting, no booing and hardly any interrupting. It was more than 50 minutes into U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler’s cordial telephone town hall Thursday evening when a woman named Jessica thanked the Republican from Camas for her service, but told her she was disappointed she wasn’t holding a face-to-face meeting.Across the country, GOP members of Congress have faced loud and pointed criticism at town halls from liberal groups who have shown up in force to voice their anger about the president’s administration and policies.In response, some members of Congress have strategically planned their town halls to control the environment. Others have skipped them. A few, such as Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., have embraced them. Walden held a town hall in Bend, Ore., on Thursday evening, where more than 2,000 people showed up for what was described by Oregon Public Broadcasting as a both hostile and energetic meeting.“Democracy in action,” Walden reportedly said.Herrera Beutler has repeatedly defended her stance to hold telephone town hall meetings. She told Jessica, the caller, she’s held more than 65 in-person town halls since she took office in 2011. Indeed, she held one in January in Hazel Dell; the questions were more poignant and predominantly about health care compared with Thursday’s telephone town hall. In person, she was also repeatedly interrupted and shouted at.Herrera Beutler recently released a statement saying she will “continue to utilize every method there is that fosters productive, civil dialogue with residents from all political viewpoints.”last_img read more

Max Lowe hopeful Aberdeen will kick on after tough fixtures

first_imgIt almost appeared Max Lowe’s Aberdeen teammates were left with nothing to show for their efforts on Sunday as Celtic lifted the Betfred Cup in the Hampden final.However, reprieve came the way of the Dons on Wednesday night as they recorded a famous 1-0 victory over Rangers at Ibrox.The on-loan-full-back who put up an impressive display against Rangers is pleased with the team’s progress and believes they are now focused on their weekend fixture against St. Johnstone.Lowe told Evening times:“After being here a couple of weeks, I felt like I’d improved my game. The gaffer took me to one side and told me the things I needed to improve defensively – I still need to improve in the air.”“He will take me aside in training and do one-v-one stuff. Each game, I’m picking up and learning things as I go on.”ABERDEEN, SCOTLAND - MAY 04: Manager of Celtic Neil Lennon celebrates as his side secured the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership title after the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Aberdeen and Celtic at Pittodrie Stadium on May 04, 2019 in Aberdeen, Scotland.

Medina – May 5, 2019 According to the team manager, the way the supporters behave this season helped the team achieve an eighth consecutive title.“Rangers and Celtic are great teams and I’m happy we’ve been able to keep them quiet. Hopefully, I can do that for as long as I stay.”“With the games in hand, we’re really confident. The final we lost, but everyone said we played really well.”“Hopefully we can kick on and make a run of it. We’ve had a tough week of away games so hopefully, this can serve us well.”“It could have been a terrible week if we lost the final and had lost on Wednesday.”“It would have been hard to kick on again. To get the win is massive for us and a massive confidence boost.”“It could be a season-changer; we can deal with anyone in this league. We showed that on Sunday, never mind on Wednesday, and I think teams in this league will know what kind of team we are.”last_img read more

Kamala Harris wants to upgrade government tech systems

first_img Politics Software Tech Industry Internet Services Post a comment 0 Getty Images Presidential candidate Kamala Harris is making a tech move.On Thursday, Sen. Harris introduced a bill called the Digital Service Act (PDF) to help state and local governments hire tech talent to upgrade their computer systems. “Americans deserve a government that works for them and that just plain works,” Harris, a Democrat from California, said in a release. “We must do more to empower our state and local governments to tap into the power of technology to provide seamless, cost-effective services for the 21st century. The Digital Service Act will help harness top talent for the government, save taxpayer dollars and put the power of technology to work on behalf of the American people.”If passed, the legislation would provide $50 million a year for government digital services, an additional $15 million would go toward seed grants for state and local governments to upgrade their systems in two years. The bill also requires at least half the grants to be used to hire talent instead of buying products. Governments would report on their progress at the end of the two-year period, and the US Digital Service would report to Congress biannually on the impact. In October, President Donald Trump asked tech giants like Google, Microsoft and Amazon to make it easier for staff to take leaves of absence to help modernize state and federal agencies’ tech services. center_img Tags Share your voicelast_img read more

PM Hasina says anarchy by public univ students not acceptable

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina. File PhotoPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday said any anarchic activity by the students of public universities is not acceptable at all as they are availing the education facility with public money, reports UNB.“Indiscipline is not acceptable, never. All must follow rules, if anyone wants to get education from any public institution he or she has to abide by the rules and regulations of that educational institution and act accordingly. That’s what we want from the students as does the nation,” she said.The prime minister said this while inaugurating “7 March Bhaban”, a newly constructed residential building for female students inside Rokeya Hall of Dhaka University (DU).In Bangladesh, she said, a student avail of the higher education probably at the cheapest cost in the world. “And all the education expenses are borne by the government … 100 per cent expense is provided by the government. I don’t know whether this exists in any other country of the world. So, the students must honour this system.”Chaired by DU vice chancellor Md Akhtaruzzaman, the function was addressed, among others, by education minister Nurul Islam Nahid, University Grants Commission (UGC) chairman professor Abdul Mannan, DU pro-vice chancellor (academic) professor Nasreen Ahmad, DU pro-vice chancellor (administration) professor Muhammad Samad, DU treasurer professor M Kamal Uddin and Rokeya Hall provost professor Jinat Huda.The 11-storey ‘7 March Bhaban’ constructed at a cost of Tk 880 million with all modern facilities.last_img read more

Only 23000 Xbox One consoles sold during launch week in Japan

first_imgMicrosoft has never managed to generate much in the way of popularity and therefore sales of its consoles in Japan. Even embracing Japanese game developers and making the Xbox 360 a platform where niche Japanese games were welcome didn’t help much. Now it looks as though the Xbox One is going to suffer a similar, or even worse fate.When the PS4 launched in Japan it sold 309,000 units during launch week. The Wii U sold 308,000. The Xbox One? Only 23,000. That’s terrible in comparison to the consoles it is competing against, but also pretty bad compared to even the Xbox 360, which managed 62,000 sales when it launched in Japan.The best selling game at launch was Titanfall with 22,416 units sold, but that probably has a lot to do with the game being bundled with the console (although you could purchase one without it in the box). Capcom game Dead Rising 3 only made it to third place and sold just 7,330 units.For the Xbox One to be a viable console in Japan Microsoft needs a miracle, and that miracle must take the form of exclusive games. The new Xbox needs an exclusive with the popularity of a Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy, or several smaller exclusives that will be enough to tempt Japanese gamers into buying the machine.I’m sure Microsoft has a plan and deals in the works with some influential Japanese publishers and developers, but they need to happen quickly. If launch week saw 23,000 sales, that figure is only going to fall in the coming weeks without some announcements, making it even more difficult to establish a foothold.last_img read more

Romero already delays Blackroom Kickstarter but so we can play a demo

first_imgEarlier this week, legendary game developers John Romero and Adrian Carmack launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new FPS game called Blackroom. Though people were excited for the prospect of a new FPS from the Doom co-creators, many wanted to play the demo before fully committing to the project. Because of this, Romero has decided to delay the campaign in order for him and the Night Work Games team to put together a small demo to give folks a taste of what to expect.“They like the idea, they think it’s really cool but they want to see some of it,” said Romero to Develop. A demo is already being worked on, but it won’t be ready before the end of the Kickstarter campaign. Romero said that his team could probably finish the demo sooner if they worked nonstop, but he doesn’t want to impose that sort of crunch time on them.Romero points out a disconnect between the excitement Blackroom is generating and how much money the campaign has brought in. As of writing, the campaign has 2,287 backers totaling $131,052 in donations. The goal of the campaign is to bring in $700,000. Romero states that the reason the campaign hasn’t raised more money is because there is nothing tangible for people to get hyped for.“It’s funny. When you look at the successful Kickstarters out there, you see tens of thousands of backers,” said Romero. “There’s not tens of thousands of backers on this one, but there are a lot of comments on YouTube, our sign-up and from the backers that we do have. All the comments are really great, massively positive, but it’s weird that it didn’t translate [to more backers].”“We know the only reason why it wouldn’t is because we didn’t show gameplay. And they’ve told us that. We’re not in a massive rush to hurry up, get all the money and start making the game — we want to do it right. So we’ll stop the fundraising for now, finish the demo we’re working on and then do it again. If they don’t like that, then we don’t make that game — but we think they will like it.”The demo is still a few months away from being completed, so don’t expect it anytime soon. It won’t be a full level from the game, but will be just enough to show folks the speed of it and how the mechanics all come together. Even the best description of Blackroom can only convey so much to folks. Getting a demo into people’s hands is the best way to let them know exactly what is in store, and if the game is truly something they want to invest in.last_img read more

More than six billion people consume milk and milk products across the world. It is our duty to ensure that milk quality is not compromised with,” the official added.The World Health Organisation (WHO) had recently issued an advisory to the Government of India stating that if adulteration of milk and milk products is not checked immediately, 87 percent of citizens would be suffering from serious diseases like cancer by the year 2025.last_img read more

BC dishes out travel inspiration with anniversary celebrations Google Trekker

first_img Posted by Tags: British Columbia, Vancouver Thursday, May 18, 2017 B.C. dishes out travel inspiration with anniversary celebrations & Google Trekker << Previous PostNext Post >>center_img TORONTO — It’s been a banner year in tourism for the province of British Columbia, thanks in large part to two main factors: increased international visitation and Canada’s sesquicentennial.While in Toronto on a media tour, representatives from B.C. tourism boards told Travelweek that visitation has spiked following Canada’s decision to lift the visa requirement for Mexican travellers as of Dec. 1, 2016. Add to that an increase in airlift (Aeromexico going double daily starting June 1) and a renewed interest in domestic travel for Canada’s 150th anniversary, and you get an uptick in inbound markets across the board, including Mexico (up 33% in 2016 over 2015), China (+18%) and the United States (+10.9%).On the domestic travel front, Saschie Maclean, Communications Specialist, North America for Tourism Vancouver, said that year-to-date numbers are slightly down (-0.3%), though traffic is expected to pick up during peak summer months. She hopes that the upcoming fall opening of the brand new Parq Vancouver complex – featuring the first JW Marriott in Western Canada – along with the recent opening of Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver will help fuel interest.JW Marriott parq Vancouver. Credit: JW Marriott.“These two new luxury properties should help with occupancy,” she said. “As luxury hotels, they’ll give Vancouver a nice mix of properties for visitors to choose from.”Vancouver is gearing up for a busy summer season, focusing largely on its Canada Day celebration that’s being billed as the biggest one outside of Ottawa. Party revellers can expect a parade of food trucks, bands, fireworks, a two-day family festival and weekly celebrations taking place at Canada Place.More news:  Transat calls Groupe Mach’s latest offer “highly abusive, coercive and misleading”As for year-round festivities, Central City Brewers + Distillers has announced a country-wide collaboration with breweries from all 12 provinces, while Edible Canada, the nation’s largest culinary tourism company, will lead a week-long ‘Over the Top’ adventure across the country from June 16-23. Also, Timber Restaurant’s Long Table Canadian Supper featuring make-em-yourself s’mores and gift bags is proving to be a hit among groups of 15 or more, as is The Loden’s virtual reality package, which includes tickets to FlyOver Canada, a virtual flight ride across Canada.The festivities continue in Whistler, located 90 minutes by car from Vancouver and a mere 30 minutes by floatplane. Several hotels are offering commemorative packages, including Pan Pacific Whistler; ‘The Thrill Seeker’ package includes three nights’ accommodation for two and a Via Ferrata Climb tour, Ziptrek Sasquatch tour, and whitewater rafting, while ‘The Cultural Explorer’ also includes three nights’ accommodation for two and entrance to the Audain Art Museum and Squamish Lil’wat Culture Centre, Peak 2 Peak Sightseeing and a Valley of Dreams walking tour.Pan Pacific Whistler.

Every day at Ship Point there’ll be live performances, with special guests playing on the Legislature Lawn on June 30 and Canada Day, plus fireworks, live music, arts and culture and local food truck offerings. Also a source of Canadian pride is Royal BC Museum’s newest exhibit, ‘Terry Fox: Running to the Heart o f Canada’ (now through Oct. 1), which explores the impact Fox had on modern Canadian life.More news:  Consolidation in the cruise industry as PONANT set to acquire Paul Gauguin CruisesFor those who need more incentive to visit B.C. this year, Sabrina Robson, Media Relations Specialist for Destination British Columbia, said there’s an interactive new way to map out their trip even before they book. Google Trekker, a new joint project by Destination BC and Google Canada, involved a team of explorers who spent 12 weeks mapping 200 treks through B.C. last summer, the biggest trekking mapping project by Google in Canada. Equipped with 40-pound Google Street View Trekker backpacks, they hiked a total of 1,000 kilometres to capture 360-degree images of trails and natural landscapes that are now available at bcexplorer.com/journeys. To complement Google’s footage, Destination BC also compiled interviews and photography that highlight B.C. from a local perspective.“We are keen to encourage residents to explore our own backyard this year,” said Robson. “With Canada 150 increasing interest and Canada Parks’ free Discovery Passes (B.C. has seven national parks), there’s no better time to visit B.C.”For more information on travel to British Columbia, go to destinationBC.ca.
