first_imgCareer-oriented Champlain College in Burlington, Vt., is introducing new bachelor’s degree programs this fall in Broadcasting, Mass Communication, and Marketing–which offers concentrations in Advertising or Marketing Management. With Champlain’s existing programs in Public Relations, Professional Writing, and Multimedia & Graphic Design, the new programs establish a dynamic team of offerings in the communications area. “The College has built a deep collection of programs,” said Nancy Kerr, director of the new Broadcasting and Mass Communication programs. “Champlain students will earn solid communication skills and they can choose to specialize in one of several exciting career fields.” The Broadcasting degree balances theory and practice, preparing students for work in areas such as television, radio, audio, video and digital production. New courses include broadcast management and programming, audio production, advanced video production and broadcast journalism. Students will gain hands-on experience with industry-quality equipment in a refurbished television studio, as well as in internships at Burlington-area media outlets and companies. “The curriculum is designed to give direction to the creative expressions of students, to offer them diversified technological expertise, and to provide them with practical training in writing for the media, media production and media management,” Kerr said. The new bachelor’s program in Marketing offers two career concentrations: Advertising and Marketing Management. Students spend their first two years learning about all that marketing has to offer from advertising and customer relationship management, to sales and Internet marketing. “We’ve designed this program so students get the fundamentals and a real-world understanding of marketing in their first two years, and they are well prepared as juniors to study a career concentration that matches their interests and goals,” said Elaine Young, the program director. The program provides two internship opportunities, including a competitive honors internship in the students’ senior year. “Hands-on learning is a vital component of our Marketing program,” Young said. “These internship opportunities reinforce students’ classroom experiences, and the added incentive of competition in their senior year will give students the opportunity to showcase the skills they will bring to the marketplace.” New courses such as account and brand management, non-profit and social marketing, and advanced advertising round out the marketing core. In the College’s new Mass Communication program, students will earn communication skills that can be applied to a broad range of careers. A required internship helps to further define career interests. Students will learn how their communications operate within a context of cultural, economic and technological factors. Through an understanding of this context, students will be poised to create ethical and enlightened work in the communications arena.

first_imgIt’s all the rage for white folks to fake being Native American. Sen. Elizabeth Warren might the most famous one but two contractors in Missouri have certainly set a record. They reportedly raked in $300 million by lying about their background.See Also: Lifetime Blames R Kelly For Gun Threats That Stopped Premiere Of Docuseries About Women Accusing The SingerThe Los Angeles Times reports Bill Buell, the owner of Premier Demolition Inc., received over $300,000 from the city of St. Louis, Missouri. Buell just said he was Native American even though his “ancestors are identified as white in census and other government records. And his claim to being a Native American rests on his membership in a self-described Cherokee group that is not recognized as a legitimate tribe.” Also On News One: Here is the form Elizabeth Warren filled out for the State Bar of Texas claiming American Indian heritage. pic.twitter.com/VwHifS7BCL— Amy Gardner (@AmyEGardner) February 6, 2019 Warren did apologize, saying, “I can’t go back. But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted,” she told the Post.Back in October, Warren released a DNA test to try to prove she was part Native American after Trump claimed she was lying about her heritage. The test, which was conducted by a Stanford University professor, showed that Warren has a Native American ancestor going back six to 10 generations, which means she is somewhere between 1/32nd and 1/1,024th American Indian.Native American journalist Simon Moya-Smith blasted Warren, writing on CNN.com, “Warren claims now to have Native American heritage. And her claim to having such heritage — versus a claim of actually being Native — feels sneaky to me. Where has she been on these many issues that plague our communities? Although the results from her DNA test are new, her identity claims here aren’t. Why has she ignored us for so long? Why only now come around? This latest disclosure lets her save face without having responsibilities to the Native community she’s claiming to share heritage with. Furthermore, name me one nation or tribe that claims her. None do.”Well said, Simon Moya-Smith.SEE ALSO:All The Ways Cops Are Still Trying To Cover Up LaQuan McDonald’s ExecutionOutrageous!

Rocky Miller, a state lawmaker in Missouri and a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, the largest of the three federally recognized Cherokee tribes, said, “It’s infuriating. They’re enriching themselves based on a nonexistent recognition.”Rebecca Nagle, a community organizer and citizen of the Cherokee Nation, also added, “It’s taking those resources not just from our community, but from all communities of color. It’s really problematic.”As of now, there appears to be no punishment for these companies, they have been stripped of their Native American “status.” Reportedly, the Small Business Administration will conduct a thorough investigation of their records.In case you forgot, The Washington Post obtained Warren’s registration card for the State Bar of Texas back in 1986, which clearly shows she lied by identifying as an “American Indian” — even though she denied every outwardly saying she was Native American.
