It will also serve as an opportunity to provide support for colleges to work together on dramatically increasing college completion, especially for first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented students.“I am honored to join other nationwide leaders in higher education as we collaborate and focus on ways to improve student success,” Miller said. “PCC has worked diligently to meet the needs of its students and help them prepare for a 21st global workplace.”As one of a small number of community colleges that were selected to attend the summit, PCC has a nearly 100-year history of serving the communities of Northeast Los Angeles. The college serves a diverse student population of more than 25,000 students and is 46 percent Hispanic/Latino, 21 percent Asian/Pacific Islander, and 5 percent African American. This diversity makes PCC one of the few colleges in the country that is both a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) and Asian American Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (ANNAPISI)-eligible.For more information on how to cover the Summit, please contact Media [email protected] and include “College Opportunity Summit Coverage” in the subject line.

Indiana Law School To Revamp Clerkship Hiring

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Marilyn Odendahl for www.theindianalawyer.comThe deans of Indiana’s four law schools were part of the successful push to change hiring practices for federal judicial clerkship and allow first-year students to concentrate on “learning for its own sake.”In September 2017, deans from 111 law schools from across the country wrote a letter asking that judges delay interviewing and hiring until after the students have completed their second year of legal studies. The current practice of clerkship hiring after the first year, they said, added more pressure and altered the students’ focus.“The point of the first year is to lay the foundations of a legal education while also encouraging exploration and learning for its own sake,” the deans wrote. “It is more difficult to pursue those goals when clerkship decisions are based solely on the first year.”Andrew Klein, dean of Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, Andrea Lyon, dean of Valparaiso University Law School, Austen Parrish, dean of Indiana University Maurer School of Law, and Nell Jessup Newton, dean of Notre Dame Law School, were among those who signed the letter.In response, federal judges are launching a two-year pilot program that will shift recruiting and interviewing to students who have finished their second year. Judges participating in the pilot will have to wait until June 17, 2019, to accept applications or recommendations, conduct interviews or make offers to students who entered law school in 2017. Similarly, the judges will have to wait have until June 15, 2020, for the students who started law school in 2018.Also, the initiative ends so-called “exploding offers” that force candidates to quickly accept the offer on the spot or lose the clerkship. Judges will have to keep an offer open for 48 hours so the applicant can be free to interview with other judges.The plan was formulated by the Ad Hoc Committee on Law Clerk Hiring, which includes Chief Judge Diane Wood of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.Paul Caron, the dean of the Pepperdine University School of Law, noted in his TaxProf Blog that the new pilot program replicates a policy that began in 2003 and continued for 10 years. It was undermined by “fiercely competitive individual judges (who) ignored the rules and pursued the top first-year students for clerkships…,” he wrote.Caron also signed the letter.The deans raised concerns that the accelerated hiring process would disadvantage first-generation law students and reduce the number of women and minorities in the hiring pool. In addition, faculty has less information about students’ academic performance and leadership potential when they have to make recommendations before the end of the first year.“As a result, there is a greater risk that we will simply make a mistake — either in who we are recommending or in who we are not recommending,” the deans wrote. “It is thus very difficult for us to help judges hire students who fit well in their chambers.”last_img read more

ACME Buys Super Fresh: Can O.C. Sustain 2 ACMEs?

first_imgThe Super Fresh grocery store at Eighth Street and West Avenue in Ocean City, N.J., will remain open and operate as usual during bankruptcy proceedings. ACME purchased the store in a deal expected to be fully approved in the fall. ACME Markets announced Monday that it will purchase the Super Fresh supermarket at Eighth Street and West Avenue in Ocean City, NJ, and 75 other grocery stores in the Mid-Atlantic region owned by A&P.A&P filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on July 19.ACME already owns and operates a supermarket at 34th Street and Simpson Avenue in Ocean City.The purchase must be approved by bankruptcy court and would not be final until the fall, and managers at both Ocean City stores said they did not know yet how the acquisition would affect local operations.A manager at Super Fresh, who said he could not comment further, said only that the store will remain open in the short term. Super Fresh employs about 150 people, and employees know little more than what was announced at the corporate level.“The vast majority of our stores are operating normally and will be fully stocked during this process,” A&P announced in a news release about the bankruptcy. “While some stores will close in the near-term, the vast majority will continue providing customers with the same high-quality products and exceptional customer service. We will also continue to honor all existing customer promotional and loyalty programs. Serving our customers has been and will continue to be our No. 1 priority.”A manager at the 34th Street ACME said, “We’re not allowed to speak about it at the store level,” and referred questions to the corporate media relations department, which has not yet returned calls about whether the company would operate two ACMEs in Ocean City.Rumors about the closing of one or the other of Ocean City’s supermarkets are annual events. The stores are situated about 2.75 miles apart, near the two gateways onto the island, which is home to as many as 150,000 people on peak summer weekends but only 11,701 year-round residents, according to the most recent U.S. Census.Some speculate that the 34th Street ACME location could be sold to become a “Super Wawa.” Since first offering it 16 years ago, Wawa now has more than 400 locations that sell fuel.Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Michele Gillian said Wednesday that representatives of ACME have told the Chamber they tentatively plan to keep both stores open and to honor all Super Fresh contracts, even after the potential deal is finalized in the fallThe Ocean City stores compete with ShopRite locations nearby on the mainland in Marmora and Somers Point.The official release on Monday said ACME entered into an agreement to acquire 76 A&P stores in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania under the A&P, Superfresh and Pathmark banners.The offer is subject to customary legal and bankruptcy court approvals, following A&P’s Chapter 11 filing on July 19, 2015, including the potential for higher bids to be submitted and anti-trust approval. A&P has asked the court for an order requiring other bidders to submit their bids by September 11, 2015, with an expectation that court approval for the sale of the stores would be received by October 15, 2015, according to a news release from ACME.ACME Markets operates 107 stores across Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey. ACME was acquired by Albertsons Companies in 2013. ACME Markets began in 1891 when two friends, Samuel Robinson and Robert Crawford, opened a small neighborhood grocery store in South Philadelphia, emphasizing quality products, low prices, and friendly service, according to the news release.For a list of A&P, Superfresh and Pathmark stores purchased by ACME, please click here.last_img read more

Caribbean triumph unforgettable, says retiring Misbah

first_imgLAHORE, Pakistan, (CMC) – Retiring Pakistan Test captan Misbah-ul-Haq says the historic 2-1 Test series victory in the Caribbean last Sunday will remain one of the highlights of his career.The 42-year-old, playing in his last international match before quitting the sport, led Pakistan to a dramatic 101-run victory over West Indies in the decisive third Test at Windsor Park.For Pakistan, it marked the first time they had beaten West Indies in a series in the Caribbean since the two teams began their rivalry in 1958.“It’s an honour for me, I’m grateful to the nation for all their prayers and support,” Misbah said on his return here Wednesday as a jubilant crowd gathered at the airport to welcome the team.“I am happy with my performance. Winning in the West Indies will be something I will always remember.“The credit for this accomplishment goes to the Pakistan Cricket Board, the players’ families, and the whole team.”Pakistan won the opening Test in Jamaica last month by seven wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the series but then collapsed on the final day of the second Test in Barbados earlier this month, to concede a 106-run defeat.In the third Test that burst to life only over the last two days, Pakistan left it until late as Man-of-the-Series leg-spinner Yasir Shah removed number 11 Shannon Gabriel with the final delivery of the penultimate over of the match, to break the hosts’ stubborn resistance.Misbah said the Test series win needed to be held up as the standard of achievement for future Pakistan sides.“We have accomplished a feat many teams across the world only dream of,” said Misbah, who surpassed 5 000 runs during the series en route to being his side’s leading scorer with 271 runs.“These sorts of victories will help bring fresh talent into the spotlight. It is crucial that we keep succeeding like this.”The tour was a successful one for Pakistan overall as they also beat West Indies in the preceding Twenty20 and one-day series.last_img read more

Ganduje Showers $40,000 on Kano Pillars

first_imgKano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has showered $1,000 on each of the Kano Pillars players and officials as part of the incentives for the Sai Masu Gida for winning the 2019 AITEO Cup.Pillars defeated Niger Tornadoes via penalty shoot out after regulation time ended goalless.In appreciation of the team for winning the former FA Cup for the state for the first time in 66 years, Ganduje said: “We are giving $1,000 to each player and members of your technical crew making that $40,000 for all of you to share. This is just one of the several gestures lined up to appreciate your effort.” Speaking at the Government House in Kano on Monday when the team paid him a ‘Thank You’ visit and to officially present the trophy to the governor,Ganduje assured them of his continued support and commitment towards the development of the club and other sporting activities in the state.He said that as far as he is concerned, “Kano Pillars remain the best football club in Nigeria. And all Nigerians know this and they understand this very well when Pillars defeated Niger Tornadoes.“We have every reason to celebrate. Our players are disciplined, committed and extremely patriotic.”He explained that it is his administration’s resolve to give sporting activities priority which explains why he decided to come up with a new Ministry of Youth and Sports Development.“We are proud of our youth. We are proud of you Kano Pillars. This victory means a lot to us,” he emphasised.Still on the AITEO Cup triumph, Ganduje said it remains one trophy that eluded the state for a long period despite Kano Pillars winning the league title several times.“This trophy eluded our state for over 60 years. We are happy that the long wait is now over as Kano Pillars have finally won it for us. We have every reason to rejoice with you our dear Pillars. We shall do everything possible for your development,” Ganduje reiterated.He disclosed that, the state government would host the team in a special and befitting state dinner where he would unveil some surprise packages for the players and officials as a way of appreciating them on behalf of the good people of Kano State.“When the final match ended goalless and a winner has to emerge via penalty shoot out, I knew we were going to win the trophy. I wasn’t surprised when Pillars made it,” he stressed.New Chairman of the Kano Pillars, Suraj Shu’aibu Yahaya commended the governor for all his untiring efforts in moving the club forward, assuring him, “my tenure as a Chairman of this great club would maintain discipline and culture of winning trophies. Yes, our players are disciplined and they would remain so and improve upon that.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Watch Game 7 Of The World Series With FiveThirtyEight By Reading Our

In less than a week, you may have heard, there’s a midterm election in the United States of America. This is sort of a big deal for us at FiveThirtyEight. Such a big deal that our estimable tech team of Jeremy Weinrib and Paul Schreiber arranged a fancy live-blogging platform so you can snuggle up next to us for hours on election night. It’ll be cozy.We’ve known for weeks that we’d need to give the platform a test drive, and we decided that we’d do that Wednesday, on the second night of the NBA season. We’d get together our crew of basketball writers (the ones who wrote our NBA team previews), buy some pizzas and use an algorithm to project whether Giannis Antetokounmpo has finally stopped growing.But as the San Francisco Giants discovered last night, Jake Peavy has a habit of ruining the best-laid plans.About the time Game 6 of the World Series passed a 95 percent win probability, we made the call to scuttle the NBA live blog. Instead, you’ll get to hang with us as we watch Game 7. We’ll argue that Jeremy Guthrie shouldn’t pitch more than three innings, locate where the Giants dynasty of the past five seasons would rank compared to others and, Yost-willing, debate the merits of the sacrifice bunt.It’s going to be great. Or a total disaster. Come and find out which. 8 p.m. EDT Wednesday. Here on FiveThirtyEight. read more

In The Spread Offense Era Can Wisconsin Rush Its Way To The

The football game played Saturday in Madison could have taken place 20 years ago. Wisconsin performed a complete takedown of Michigan, outclassing the Wolverines on both lines. The Badgers were unstoppable in the running game, piling up 359 yards on 57 carries. They pressured Michigan on 39.6 percent of dropbacks, negating the Wolverines’ speed at the skill positions. They led 28-0 at halftime and had the ball for more than 41 out of 60 minutes.In short, they played the game that Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has always wanted his team to play. After he accepted his first head coaching job, at San Diego in 2004, Harbaugh told legendary Michigan coach Bo Schembechler that he would always have a fullback on his roster. As they shift toward spread concepts — Harbaugh brought in coordinator Josh Gattis last offseason to overhaul his ground-and-pound offense and replace it with a no-huddle attack as a last-ditch effort to break Michigan’s Ohio State curse — this year’s Wolverines don’t have a fullback. But Wisconsin has three, and one of them, John Chenal, scored a touchdown against Michigan. After Saturday’s rout and shutouts of South Florida and Central Michigan by a combined score of 110-0, Paul Chryst’s team is 3-0, No. 9 in the coaches’ poll and No. 8 in the AP poll. The Badgers appear to be the best version of their traditional hard-nosed, smashmouth selves. The question this year is: Is that good enough to make the College Football Playoff?In the spread-offense era, Wisconsin would be quite the party-crasher. The Badgers this season have averaged one snap every 31 seconds, playing at a slower tempo than any of the 20 playoff teams to date. Just 41.4 percent of their play calls are passes, fewer than any playoff finalist except Georgia in 2017. Chryst’s team has run more than half of its plays (118 of 224) from under center and huddled before 99.1 percent of its snaps. On its fourth play from scrimmage Saturday, Wisconsin faced fourth-and-inches from its own 34-yard line and came out in a jumbo formation it calls “14-Hippo” featuring seven offensive linemen, two tight ends, quarterback Jack Coan and running back Jonathan Taylor. “We slowly got to where we wanted to be, right?” Chryst told reporters afterward. “It worked.”Wisconsin has been playing this way for years; since 2005, the style has produced nine double-digit-win seasons and three Rose Bowl berths. But the Badgers have not played for a national championship in that time. They came closest in 2017, when they marched undefeated through the regular season but fell just short to Ohio State in the Big Ten championship game. That team, perhaps more than any other, illustrated the perils of playing a plodding style in this era. When it counted, Ohio State raced past Wisconsin for 57-yard and 84-yard touchdown passes in the first quarter, and the Badgers managed only one offensive touchdown in a 27-21 loss. When their defense gave them two final chances to take the lead in the fourth quarter, their offense finished those drives with a punt and an interception.This year’s team may already be different in one area: quarterback. From 2016 to 2018, Wisconsin started the inconsistent Alex Hornibrook, whose touchdown-to-interception ratio was just 1.42 and whose highest completion percentage in a season was 62.3 percent, good for 33rd among the top 100 quarterbacks. (The other two years he didn’t make the top 100 in completion percentage.) He threw crucial late interceptions in games such as that 2017 Big Ten championship and a 2016 trip to Michigan. Coan faced no such problems Saturday, when he rushed for two touchdowns. In Coan, Wisconsin might now have a capable quarterback to pair with its defense and Taylor, its Heisman candidate running back.This year’s Badgers have one opportunity that the 2017 version didn’t: a regular-season trip to Ohio State. Two seasons ago, Wisconsin did not play a top-15 team until the conference championship, and losing that game knocked the team out of playoff contention. This year, the Badgers can make a huge statement by beating the Buckeyes for the first time since 2010. Their schedule may even afford them two cracks at it: If they win all their other games, they could lose to the Buckeyes in their regular-season matchup next month, avenge that loss in the Big Ten title game and still make the playoff.If they can’t beat Ohio State, the Badgers will likely become another good team with a stout defense and an offense that’s serviceable but not flashy, potentially ending up in a New Year’s Six bowl but missing the playoff. And if Wisconsin can beat its old rival, Alabama and Clemson will likely be lying in wait, setting up the ultimate test of speed versus power.1So far this season, Alabama and Clemson are huddling before 40.4 percent and 34.4 percent of snaps, respectively. This decade has overwhelmingly favored speed. Old-school Wisconsin is hoping it can turn back the clock. read more

Womens volleyball OSU drops two matches in Michigan

Ohio State’s libero Valeria Leon passes a ball in the regional quarterfinal versus Washington on December 11, 2015. Credit: Ohio State AthleticsThe weekend wasn’t kind to the Ohio State women’s volleyball team, as they dropped two matches on the road against Michigan State and OSU’s main rival, Michigan. Up first were the No. 21 Michigan State Spartans, who silenced the No. 14 Buckeyes in a 3-0 sweep on Friday. OSU then travelled to Ann Arbor to take on the No. 23 Michigan Wolverines. The Buckeyes would only secure one set before falling to their foe, 3-1. The pair of losses comes on the heels of OSU’s upset over then-No. 1 Nebraska on October 1. After this weekend, the Buckeyes hold a 2-4 conference record. The team is 12-6 overall. Michigan StateOSU would be starting another new lineup against the Spartans. Sophomore outside hitter and regular starter Audra Appold was still out due to an injury that originated before the Buckeyes’ match against Northwestern on Sept. 28. The Buckeyes would be playing catch-up for the entire first set. Unforced errors forced OSU head coach Geoff Carlston to burn a timeout early on in the set. The Spartans would go on a 4-0 run to make the score 18-9 before Carlston used his remaining timeout for the first set. The Buckeyes couldn’t respond to the Michigan State offense and would drop the first set, 18-25. Much like the first, Michigan State would carry the lead for the entire second set. The Buckeyes pulled within reach of a tie mid-set until the Spartans started to gradually increase their separation. An OSU service error would secure the second set win for Michigan State. The third set would carry a different tune as the teams would see 10 tie scores and the Buckeyes would hold their first lead of the match. Senior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe and junior outside hitter Luisa Schirmer combined for nine kills and sparked OSU’s offense. With the score tied at 21-21, it seemed like the third set could go to either team, but in the end it was the Spartans who would score the match point and complete the sweep of OSU, 25-23. Sophomore setter Taylor Hughes led the team in hitting percentages with .429. She also added 23 assists and combined for four blocks. MichiganIn front of a sold-out crowd in Ann Arbor, OSU would face their school rivals, Michigan. The Wolverines started the match out strong, jumping out to 6-0. After an OSU timeout, Sandbothe hammered down a kill and finally put the Buckeyes on the scoreboard. However, OSU errors would continue to dig a deep hole for the team. At 12-4, Michigan was boasting an errorless hitting game compared to five errors for OSU. The Buckeyes would score seven unanswered points later in the set to close the gap, but three costly OSU service errors would give the first set to Michigan, 25-20. The second set saw 13 tie scores, two lead changes, and proved to hold true to the meaning of the rivalry. Midway through the set, each team’s offensive numbers were explosive: .400 for the Buckeyes and .611 for the Wolverines. Schirmer put away seven kills alone in the second set. It was Michigan who would get the first set point at 24-23, followed by an OSU hitting error.  The Wolverines would have the advantage going into the third set, 2-0. OSU may have been going into the third with a disadvantage, but they weren’t going down easily. The Buckeyes took the early lead at 11-7 and forced a Michigan timeout after an ace by Hughes. OSU would get their first set point of the match from a kill by Sandbothe that would push the duel into four sets. The fourth set was a crowd thriller. OSU was able to come back from an 18-9 deficit to even the score at 21-21. The Buckeyes were able to fend off two Wolverine set points, but two skill Michigan plays would secure their match victory. Sandbothe and Schirmer paced the Buckeyes’ offense with 17 kills each, while senior libero Valeria León collected 23 digs. OSU will be back at St. John Arena for a rematch with the No. 3 Nebraska Huskers on Friday. read more
