The Neuro Foundation is targeting university students with the launch of Runderpants: a new student fun run.The Runderpants Mile event asks university students to raise funds for the The Neuro Foundation by running a mile in special Runderpants™ underwear, which they will receive when they sign up.The charity is currently collaborating with RAG teams from five universities across the country: Bangor University, University of Cambridge, Durham University, Falmouth University and Imperial College London. The teams are helping to organise and market the Runderpants Mile in their towns, with events expected to take place in each one during February and March.The Runderpants™ brand creation was a pro-bono project with branding agency, The Specialist Works, while Oddballs Ltd has produced the underwear and the event has received corporate sponsorship from Boohoo.com. The Neuro Foundation has also partnered with Blackbaud Inc.’s everydayhero platform to create a seamless fundraising experience for student participants.Brendan Rodgers, Operations and Marketing Manager, The Neuro Foundation, said:“For us, Runderpants™ isn’t just about creating a new income stream for the charity, it’s about promoting body positivity, and offering a gateway event to sports. We know most people can run a mile, so it’s just a case of seeing who’s prepared to give it a shot! We are also very excited to be getting to know the student fundraising community better. If you ever want to be inspired for the future of this world, chat to the RAG teams at any given university; their drive, aspiration and informed approach has confirmed what we suspected; students are shockingly underestimated by the charity sector.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis18 Melanie May | 29 January 2018 | News Tagged with: fundraising events higher education 170 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis18 Advertisement 169 total views, 1 views today Neuro Foundation launches fun run to inspire student participation About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Shelton Selected as President of Giant Magellan Telescope Organization Prominent Physicist and Academic Leader to Join Historic Project From STAFF REPORTS Published on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 | 11:05 am Top of the News The Giant Magellan Telescope Organization (GMTO) today announced the appointment of physicist Robert N. Shelton, PhD, to the position of President, effective February 20, 2017. Dr. Shelton will lead the organization behind the development of the 24.5 meter Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT) which is poised to be the world’s largest astronomical telescope when it comes online early in the next decade. Dr. Shelton will work closely with the GMTO Board of Directors, the leadership at the partner institutions, and the GMT team to complete construction of the observatory.Expert leadership is critical to transforming the GMT from a bold vision into a world leading research facility,” said Walter E. Massey, Ph.D, Chair of the GMTO Board of Directors and Chancellor of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. “Dr. Shelton brings the skills and experience that we need at this critical time in the development of the GMT. The GMTO Board looks forward to working with Robert on this exciting project”.The GMT will enable breakthrough science ranging from studies of the first stars and galaxies in the Universe to the exploration of planets around other stars. The project is being developed by an international consortium of universities and research institutions in the US, Australia, Brazil, and Korea. The telescope will be located at the Las Campanas Observatory high in the Andes mountains of northern Chile. Dark skies, a dry climate and smooth airflow make Las Campanas one of the world’s premier astronomical observing sites. Construction is underway at the observatory site in Chile and the giant mirrors that are at the heart of the telescope are being polished at the Richard F. Caris Mirror Laboratory at the University of Arizona.“The GMT will be an incredible asset to the future of scientific discovery and our understanding of the Universe,” said Robert N. Shelton, PhD, President, GMTO. “I am delighted to join the organization behind this historic project and look forward to working with the Board and our partner institutions to ensure the successful completion of the telescope.”Shelton joins GMTO from the Research Corporation for Science Advancement where he has been president since March 2014 and leads the vision and direction of America’s first foundation dedicated solely to funding science. Dr. Shelton has been the executive director of the Arizona Sports Foundation, the 19th president of the University of Arizona, and provost and executive vice chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, among many other notable leadership and academic positions at renowned public research universities. He also brings experience as a distinguished experimental condensed-matter physicist focusing on collective electron effects in novel materials, reaching more than 240 refereed publications, 50 invited talks and 100 contributed papers at professional meetings.Comments on the NewsAstronomer and Nobel Laureate, Dr. Brian Schmidt, Vice Chancellor of the Australian National University said, “Dr. Shelton is highly respected in the astronomical community through his service on the boards of numerous observatories and scientific institutions, and was also president of my alma mater. The ANU and Astronomy Australia Limited look forward to working with Dr. Shelton in his new role at GMTO.”“The GMT will be a ground-breaking scientific tool for discovery, and I look forward to Robert Shelton’s experienced leadership in making it a reality,” said Harvard University President Drew Faust.About the Giant Magellan Telescope OrganizationThe Giant Magellan Telescope Organization (GMTO) manages the GMT project on behalf of its international partners: Astronomy Australia Ltd., The Australian National University, Carnegie Institution for Science, Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP), Harvard University, Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute, Smithsonian Institution, Texas A&M University, The University of Texas at Austin, University of Arizona, and University of Chicago.Connect with the Giant Magellan Telescope Organization on social media: gplus.to/gmtelescope,twitter.com/GMTelescope, https://www.facebook.com/GMTelescope, https://www.instagram.com/gmtelescope/ and visit http://www.gmto.org.

Career-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.

The camp benchmarking project continues and is slowly but surely joined by an increasing number of camps.We bring you an interesting research Benchmarking of Croatian camps for the Croatian Camping Association (KUH) conducted from month to month by the Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality Management from Opatija. A total of 30 campsites are participating in the Benchmarking project from which relevant data such as camp occupancy, utilization rate, revenue per night, average length of stay and many others can be extracted.Otherwise, Benchmarking is the process of measuring and comparing a company’s operations, products and services with the best, either within the company’s area of operation or outside it. Benchmarking is a process based on comparing one’s own dimensions (processes, products, costs, etc.) with a company that deserves to be a measure of value.”Camps that have not yet joined are invited to join immediately in order to gain additional representativeness and accuracy of the data and further raise the quality of the results.” stand out from KUH. Otherwise, from the opening until 11.7.2017. The camps realized 6.167.121 overnight stays, ie an increase in the number of overnight stays compared to last year of + 23,31%.Below, by clicking on the link, you can download the benchmarking reports of the camps for the 5th and 4th month.Download the report “Camping benchmarking – 4/2017.”Download the report “Camping benchmarking – 5/2017.Related news:ADRIANO PALMAN, KUH: WE STRONGLY OPPOSE THE NEWLY CREATED CATEGORY “CAMP RESORT – ROBINSON ACCOMMODATION”KUH EXECUTIVE BOARD HELD MEETING WITH MINISTER OF TOURISM

“I don’t think you can stop Diego Costa,” Warnock said. “And you can talk about Costa but there is also Eden Hazard, Oscar – you name it, they are all top-class players. “There’s Cesc Fabregas and the unsung heroes. But we worry about our players not theirs. “If you think about their players too much, you wouldn’t sleep.” Warnock is refusing to wave the white flag as he plots a famous victory inspired by Stoke’s 1-0 victory at Manchester City on August 30. Palace also beat Chelsea in the corresponding fixture last season, dealing a huge late-season blow to the Blues’ title hopes. “This is the type of league where there’s always a chance. We are 7/1 apparently. But there is always an opportunity,” Warnock said. “We know we are going to be under the cosh, but every team that plays against Chelsea in the bottom half of the table is under the cosh. Palace host the Barclays Premier League pacesetters at Selhurst Park on Saturday, with Warnock claiming Chelsea are capable of emulating Arsenal’s ‘Invincibles’ by completing the season unbeaten. The arrival of £32million striker Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid has provided Chelsea with the goals that were missing last season – the Spaniard has fired nine in nine appearances – but Warnock believes danger lurks throughout their team. Press Association Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock refuses to think about Chelsea’s array of attacking players as it would cause him sleepless nights. “It is can we be disciplined enough? Can we create enough on the day? “You just have to concentrate on trying to get your own players up for the game and not show too many weaknesses. “That is what we have been trying to do this week and hopefully that comes off. Look at Stoke – they beat Man City away. “I don’t think there is a club we can’t beat in the Premier League and that’s the same for every team in the Premier League. Results are possible everywhere.” Jose Mourinho has sarcastically accepted the criticism from Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert and assistant Roy Keane over the Chelsea manager’s handshake towards the end of their Premier League clash last month. Lambert and Keane declined the Blues manager’s offer of a handshake in the latter stages of Villa’s 3-0 loss at Stamford Bridge on September 27, with both expressing their annoyance towards Mourinho in the last 10 days. Keane, who labelled Mourinho’s behaviour “disgraceful”, was scathing in his criticism, saying: “The game is still going on. You wouldn’t do that on a Sunday morning, you would get knocked out.” Lambert agreed when asked this week if he felt Mourinho was “disrespectful” by not waiting until the end of the match for the handshake. Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s Saturday match at Crystal Palace, Mourinho said: “First of all, I want to say that I appreciate the comments. “I think they are both two great examples of polite and very well educated people and because I am a humble guy who tries to learn every day and with every experience, I appreciate the comments.” Asked if he would do it again, Mourinho responded “yes”, before responding “no” when asked if he could understand why someone would be upset by his actions. He refused to comment when asked to respond over suggestions the action was arrogant. Mourinho refused to rake over old ground following Arsene Wenger’s apology for the Arsenal manager’s push on the Portuguese during Chelsea’s most recent match, a 2-0 defeat of Arsenal on October 5. “I have no reaction,” Mourinho added. “You had my reaction after the match, where I told you nothing happened, and you still had the reaction from the FA (Football Association), disciplinary committees, all of them, that that nothing happened.” Chelsea have a number of fitness concerns ahead of the trip to Selhurst Park. Costa, Ramires (groin), Didier Drogba (ankle), Andre Schurrle (illness) and John Obi Mikel (undisclosed) will be assessed prior to the match. Costa’s fragile hamstrings have been the subject of much debate, but it is unclear what the latest issue is. The £32million signing from Atletico Madrid, who has scored nine goals in seven Premier League games, reported to Chelsea’s Surrey training base on Monday morning despite having been told to take two days off and return to training on Wednesday afternoon. “The Spanish team played in Luxembourg on Sunday,” Mourinho said. “I gave them – Diego, (Cesc) Fabregas and (Cesar) Azpilicueta – two days off. “Monday and Tuesday off, so they had to report to train Wednesday at 3pm and Diego was here Monday at 9am. “So you can imagine how strong he was to be here Monday at 9am.” Asked if Costa was reporting for treatment, Mourinho said: “No comments.”
Ghana striker Yakubu Mohammed is delighted and promised to score more goals after finding the back of the net on his PSL debut for Maritzburg United.The former Ashanti Gold striker scored the only goal which gave Ernst Middendorp’s side a 1-0 win over newly- promoted side Polokwane city on Saturday.In an exclusive interview with Joy sports, the 24-year-old noted that he is delighted to make a dream start to his life in the South African league.“Now that I have announced my presence here, I will make sure I continue working hard to be consistent in front of goal,” Mohammed told Joy Sports.“It was great scoring on my debut and I believe this will continue. The league here is different from that of Ghana but I’m glad I have been able to quickly adapt to the weather and their style of play.“I want to score more goals for the club but I know is a gradual process and can only work hard towards it.”
