Mandela’s Mvezo’s school dream realised

first_img20 January 2014 Madiba’s dream of a secondary school at his birthplace of Mvezo in the Eastern Cape was finally realised with the official opening of the Nelson Mandela School of Science and Technology on Friday. The R100-million school, built in partnership by German engineering company Siemens, the Mvezo Development Trust, the community of Mvezo and South Africa’s Department of Basic Education, will enable 700 learners from about 24 feeder primary schools to study engineering, science, technology and agriculture. Speaking at the opening of the school, President Jacob Zuma said, “Madiba had to travel far to obtain secondary education because there was no secondary school in this area. Siemens has ensured that the children of Mvezo receive a state-of-the-art science and technology school.” Zuma said Mandela was passionate about education and the plight of children, as they were the future of the country. “That is why he was always raising funds to build a school in the country, particularly among the most disadvantaged communities. This is a legacy that should be continued.” Although there was an improvement in the country’s matric results, particularly in maths and science in 2013, Zuma said there was still a long way to go to getting learners to take a real interest in the subjects. “Societies advance through science and technology, and our country should not be left behind. We should make science and technology a joy for our learners.” Zuma urged the school’s new learners to use the opportunity and build a bright future for themselves. “The Mandela School of Science and Technology must be a training ground for the leaders of tomorrow. We want you to produce leaders in various fields, in honour of the distinguished man after whom the school is named.” The school is part of the Accelerated School Infrastructure Delivery Initiative, an R8.2-billion public-private initiative which aims to eradicate the 496 “mud schools” in the country, and provide water and sanitation to 1 257 schools and electricity to 878 schools by March 2016.

Golden State seeks a fourth consecutive berth in the NBA Finals and 10th trip overall. Only the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers have reached more finals and only they and Michael Jordan’s 1990s Chicago Bulls have captured more crowns.“I think mentally it’s really going to test us,” Iguodala said. “How do we respond to, I wouldn’t say adversity, but just defending the championship again?“There’s always a lot of noise surrounding us and we have to continue to be resilient through the noise, because it can weigh on us sometimes.”The only teams to reach at least four consecutive finals were Boston in the 1960s, the 1980s Lakers and Celtics and LeBron James-led Miami from 2011-14. But the only team to have the best regular-season record those same four years was the Celtics more than a half-century ago.Durant averaged 25.1 points, 8.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists last season while Curry, who led the team in scoring for a fifth consecutive campaign, contributed 25.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 6.6 assists a game and Thompson produced 22.3 points a game.Curry says having so much talent doesn’t cause a problem with keeping everyone involved in the attack.“The way we play, everybody touches the ball. Everybody is involved,” Curry said. “Everybody should be a threat when they’re on the floor. And with the high IQ guys we have on this team, we just find a way for it to blend and work.“And we don’t have guys that are selfish at all, that are jealous of anybody else’s success or going to create drama if they get five shots one game and 15 shots the next game — as long as we win.” Kevin Durant out with Achilles injury; to undergo MRI on Tuesday PLAY LIST 03:12Kevin Durant out with Achilles injury; to undergo MRI on Tuesday02:25Raptors or Warriors?

Fernandez thanks doubters for pushing Red Lions to work harder

first_imgBut the Red Lions threw the Pirates’ undefeated record down the drain when they swept the best-of-three Finals with a 92-82 victory on Thursday.Fernandez added another hardware to his already gaudy trophy case with his third championship with San Beda.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutBut more than the citation, what meant more to for Fernandez was his triumphant return to the collegiate scene after two years in the pros with NLEX.“A door closes and a big gate of San Beda opened up for me. San Beda welcomed me with open arms, and they really, really tried to adjust to my system,” he said. “It’s tough for me with all the situation that I had in the past. It brought back the trust I had in myself, because what happened to me was so bad that I thought I’d never coach again.” 10 Filipino players bolster ABL teams as Heritage Imports It was one of the most challenging tasks the outspoken mentor has ever faced in his decorated career in the collegiate scene.Through the course of San Beda’s stronghold of the NCAA throne, it has never been regarded as an underdog. That was until Season 93, when surprise top seed Lyceum rampaged through the field and completed the 18-game sweep of the eliminations.Fernandez knew the odds were stacked against him, and it didn’t help that criticisms were hurled his way when the Red Lions failed to finish on top for the first time in 12 years.Fortunately for him, his players showed their worth and proved that this batch is truly one of the best this decade has ever seen, shunning  doubts with a championship to brag.“This championship will not be a reality if not for my players. They deserve to win this championship because they worked hard really well. They sacrificed for around 11 months, and we know in the course of our season, people doubted us. But the circle of this team never doubted each other,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Read Next CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

They gave us fire and we strived hard to win. They counted us out, they counted me out right away, but in the end, we came back and won a championship,” he said.Fernandez is also hopeful that the NCAA Season 93 trophy will be enough to merit a return ticket for him in Mendiola next year.“I wish I’ll continue to coach San Beda. I know it will be up to the bosses what their decision will be, but if I will be asked if I’ll stay with San Beda, can it be lifetime?,” he asked.At this moment, with a championship to boot, there’s no reason why Fernandez shouldn’t.

Picture perfect

By Sonali AcharjeeThe history of Ritsumeikan University dates back to 1869 when Prince Kinmochi Saionji, an eminent international statesman of modern Japan, founded Ritsumeikan as a private academy on the site of the Kyoto,Ritsumeikan University, Japan’s third largest private university, offers a wide range of courses in advanced studies. By Sonali AcharjeeThe history of Ritsumeikan University dates back to 1869 when Prince Kinmochi Saionji, an eminent international statesman of modern Japan, founded Ritsumeikan as a private academy on the site of the Kyoto Imperial Palace. Today, Ritsumeikan University offers a wide range of courses in advanced studies at its Kinugasa Campus in Kyoto and Biwako-Kusatsu Campus (BKC) in Shiga. The university currently has a student population of 35,000 and is Japan’s third largest private university. Students can opt for courses in a variety of disciplines such as law, social science, international relations, image arts and sciences, economics, business, engineering, sports and health care, pharmaceutical science and humanities. Aside from the excellent facilitites on campus, students at Ritsumeikan also have the opportunity to experience the culture and sights of Kyoto.”Japan by itself is so rich in heritage and culture. Kyoto takes this one step further. It’s such a student-friendly city – safe, fun and engaging,” says Mahima Roy, 19, a geography student from Kolkata. While many know Kyoto as the cultural epicenter of Japan, most are surprised to find that it is also the country’s foremost university town. With 25 universities operating in the city, Kyoto’s 1,40,000 students account for nearly 10 per cent of the overall population.This diversity creates a unique atmosphere where ancient culture, values, and tradition exist side-by-side with contemporary culture, cutting-edge research and industry, and the latest technology. Kyoto is unique in the fact that you can meditate in a Zen temple, shop for the latest fashions, visit the headquarters of Nintendo, walk through various UNESCO World Heritage Sites, or dance the night away at one of the city’s nightspots.advertisement”I was in Kyoto to tour various universities last year. People were very helpful. I not only made new friends but also picked up a lot of interesting information regarding my course,” adds Roy. And when you need to take a break from studying, Kyoto provides a multitude of sanctuaries, beginning with the nearly 2,000 temples and shrines that make it famous. While everything a university student could need is available in the city itself, when you are ready for a change of scenery, Kobe and Osaka are both located within a 60 minute train ride. The Tokaido Shinkansen Line also makes travel to Tokyo, Nagoya, Hiroshima, and Hakata easy and convenient.Active learning is keyKiyofumi Kawaguchi, chancellor of Ritsumeikan University talks about the highlights and benefits of education reforms in JapanToday, reform at Japanese universities are focused on a ‘shift in the quality of education’. That is to say, a shift from university as a place where professors teach students uni-directionally to a place where students learn among themselves; the ultimate goal of which is to prepare our students for a world of lifelong learning. To realise this, it is important that we place active learning at the center of the curriculum. Specifically, this means introducing education techniques centered on team-oriented problem solving, project-based learning, debate, and presentations. On the other hand, society, in particular, the world of business, is looking to universities in Japan seeking what are called ‘global human resources’. These are described as individuals who possess not only foreign language skills but also the capacity to take initiative and tackle problems within foreign and multicultural contexts. In other words, our shift in education must occur alongside the globalisation of education.Until recently, international partnerships in higher education primarily took the form of student exchange wherein the premise is that the participants study within the curricula of the host university. The next step is to shift the quality of such education, and to actualise this we must develop together programmes centered on active learning. At Ritsumeikan University we are currently implementing two such global joint programmes. The first is the ‘Campus Asia Programme’. In this programme a total of 30 students made up of groups of 10 each from three universities – Guangdong University of Foreign Studies in China, Dongseo University in South Korea, and Ritsumeikan University – spend three months at the campus of each university living and studying alongside each other over the course of two years. The second programme is a joint course that started this academic year involving several member universities of the ASEAN International Mobility for Students Program or AIMS programme, namely the University of Indonesia, Gadjah Mada University and the Bandung Institute of Technology of Indonesia as well as Mahidol University and Thammasat University in Thailand. The course utilises ICT such as video on demand and online technology and is centered on project-based learning PBL.advertisementWhile there remain many issues, such as differences in credit systems and academic calendars across countries, students remain eager and we have high hopes for the educational value of this shift. Going forward, Ritsumeikan University plans to take such efforts to greater heights, and furthermore, to see the realization of joint programs with universities in Europe, America and Asia.last_img read more

He hit a 3 over Nowitzki before the smooth-shooting 7-footer answered with his familiar one-legged fadeaway over Wade at the other end.“There’s a great karma to each one of them,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “As soon as Wade got his opportunity to go one-on-one against him in the corner, you just knew that somehow Dirk was going to get him with an opportunity on the other end.”Some of the loudest boos for Wade came with him dribbling out the final seconds of the first half isolated on Dallas rookie Jalen Brunson.
