first_imgCambridge has beaten Oxford once again in the ‘QS Top Universities’ ranking.A study found that Cambridge is the best university in the country at which to study fourteen subjects, with Oxford best for only ten. Behind these two comes LSE with three and Reading, the Institute of Education and Edinburgh with one each.However, globally Oxford outperformed Cambridge. The university was found to be the best university in the world for the study of English Language and Literature, Geography and Modern Languages. Cambridge came top only in History and Archaeology. This places Oxford third, behind Harvard and MIT who dominate the global rankings, coming first in eleven and nine subjects respectively. Despite this, Oxford is ranked 6th globally.The QS Study is published annually, and takes into account a range of factors in its assessment of each university. These include indicators such as citations per faculty, the faculty/student ratio and, most controversially, academic peer review – an opinion survey amongst 33,744 academics regarding which university is currently leading in each particular field.A University spokesperson, commenting on the findings, explained, “There are always limits to how precise league tables can be. However, the latest QS tables confirm Oxford’s leading international status across all subjects, delivering some of the best research and education in the world.”The reaction from the student body has been mixed. One Oxford student commented, ‘These league tables tend to be based on somewhat tenuous evidential findings and change dramatically year on year. I do not believe that the results of this report are of particular relevance to students of either university, other than those looking for some pointless one-upmanship. Besides, obviously Oxford’s better.”One student noted, “Those wankers in Cambridge might get a slightly better education than us but we both know who would win in a fight. Besides we do better globally than them and we’re not as socially inept as those tossers.”The reaction from Cambridge was more positive. One student commented, “I am overjoyed with the news. Our famous rivalry has finally taken a twist towards Cambridge and I could not be happier. I was rejected from Oxford but look at me now! They’re terrible and I’m pleased they’re slipping down the league tables”.A first year lawyer at Jesus stated , “I went on a crew date with Jesus College, Cambridge and I can honestly say they were the biggest twats I’d ever met and I would be happy to never meet them again. All night they went on how Oxford weren’t in the top 3 universities in the world in an attempt to impress every girl in the entire restaurant. I guess it’s all they’ve got.”last_img read more

Following Wednesday night’s performance Safeco Field, for their second and final performance at the arena on Friday night, the group continued the trend of inviting out special guests and offering standout covers in addition to their more traditional catalog.Across the band’s extended set and double encore, Pearl Jam offered up plenty of standard, classic tunes, such as hits “Even Flow” and “Daughter”. However, Eddie Vedder and company used the performance to honor recently lost musical icons in addition to paying to tribute to Seattle’s ’90s grunge scene, which the band first grew to popularity in. The first tribute of the night was the live debut of “Missing”, paying tribute to Chris Cornell who penned the song. Later, to start the first encore, the group performed Tom Petty‘s “I Won’t Back Down”, honoring another iconic artist lost in 2017.Up next, Pearl Jam yet again referenced the Seattle grunge scene, performing a cover of Mother Love Bone‘s “Crown Of Thorns”. Kim Thayil, the guitarist for Cornell’s Soundgarden, came out for the next song, a take on MC5‘s “Kick Out The Jams”. The guitarist later returned for the second encore, performing Iggy & The Stooges‘ “Search And Destroy” and Dead Boys‘ “Sonic Reducer” with Steve Turner and Mark Arm of the grunge band Mud Honey.Setlist: Pearl Jam | Safeco Field | Seattle, WA | 8/10/2018Set: Oceans, Footsteps, Nothingman, Why Go, Brain of J., Interstellar Overdrive (Pink Floyd cover), Corduroy, Rats, In Hiding, Whipping, Even Flow, Missing (Chris Cornell cover), Daughter (with “W.M.A” and “It’s Ok” tag), Immortality, I’m Open, Unthought Known, Can’t Deny Me, Do the Evolution, Lukin, PorchEncore One: I Won’t Back Down (Tom Petty cover) (EV solo), Thin Air, All or None, Better Man (with “Save It for Later” by English Beat tag), Crown of Thorns (Mother Love Bone cover), Kick Out the Jams (MC5 cover) (with Kim Thayil), Spin the Black Circle, Rearviewmirror (with “Fernando” (ABBA) snippet)Encore Two: Crazy Mary (Victoria Williams cover), Jeremy, Leash, Search and Destroy (Iggy and The Stooges cover) (With Kim Thayil, Steve Turner, and Mark Arm), Sonic Reducer (Dead Boys cover) (With Kim Thayil, Steve Turner, and Mark Arm), Alive, Baba O’Riley (The Who cover), Yellow LedbetterYou can check out select videos from Pearl Jam’s guest-filled hometown performance below.“Missing” (Chris Cornell cover) [Video: mfc172]“I Won’t Back Down” (Tom Petty cover)[Video: Tim Durkan][Video: mfc172]“Kick Out The Jams” (with Kim Thayil)[Video: mfc172]“Search And Destroy” (with Kim Thayil, Steve Turner, & Mark Arm) read more

first_imgPatricia A. King, the Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Law, Medicine, Ethics, and Public Policy at Georgetown Law Center, plans to step down from the Harvard Corporation at the end of December, the University announced today.A 1969 alumna of Harvard Law School who has served on the Georgetown faculty for nearly four decades, King is a noted expert in legal and ethical aspects of biomedical science, with broad experience at the intersection of scholarship and public policy.“It’s been a great privilege to serve on the Corporation these past seven years and to work with valued colleagues in helping to guide a university that means so much to the world,” said King. “They have been eventful years, including a leadership transition, a worldwide financial crisis, the rise of globalization and new technologies, and a rapidly changing landscape for all of higher education.  I’m especially pleased to have played a part in the governance reforms that we adopted in 2010 and that I believe will strengthen the Corporation and the University for decades to come. While I regret having to bring my service to a close for family reasons, I will look back on these years with a sense of deep appreciation, and with admiration for the people who make Harvard so extraordinary.”“Pat King has been a remarkably thoughtful and incisive Corporation colleague, always focused on the institution’s best interests and how it can challenge itself to do better,” said Robert D. Reischauer, the Corporation’s senior fellow and president emeritus of the Urban Institute.  “We will all miss working with her, and Harvard will miss her wisdom.”A fellow of Harvard College since March 2006, King has served on the Corporation Committee on Finance, the Corporation Committee on Shareholder Responsibility (which she has chaired since last year), and the Advisory Committee on Honorary Degrees.“I have admired Pat King since I first met her, and I’m very grateful for all she has done to support me personally and to help Harvard advance institutionally,” said President Drew Faust. “She has a clear moral compass, a penetrating view of what matters most to Harvard and higher education, and a wonderfully probing, firm, and yet gracious and generous way about her that has contributed invaluably to the Corporation’s work.”King joined the Georgetown law faculty in 1974, and has also served since 1990 as an adjunct professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management of the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University. Her scholarship and teaching range across law, medicine, ethics, and public policy. Her publications address such topics as race and bioethics, ethical and policy dimensions of stem cell research, and the ethics of experimentation involving human subjects.A longtime trustee of her undergraduate alma mater, Wheaton College (Mass.), King chaired the Wheaton board from 2000 to 2005. Over the years, she also served as vice chair of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, vice chair of the Russell Sage Foundation, a member of the Council of the Institute of Medicine, and a member of the advisory committee to the director of the National Institutes of Health.Early in her career, King was a lawyer in the federal government, serving as special assistant to the chair of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, deputy director of the Office of Civil Rights of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW), and deputy assistant attorney general in the Civil Division of the Department of Justice.King is a member of the American Law Institute and the Institute of Medicine and a fellow of the Hastings Center. Her work in bioethics has included service on the HEW’s Recombinant DNA Advisory Committee, the President’s Commission for the Study of Ethical Problems in Medicine and Biomedical and Behavioral Research, the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research, and the Ethics, Legal, and Social Issues Working Group of the Human Genome ProjectKing and her husband, Roger Wilkins, the Clarence J. Robinson Professor of History and American Culture Emeritus at George Mason University, live in Washington, D.C.The Harvard Corporation, formally known as the President and Fellows of Harvard College, is Harvard’s principal fiduciary governing board and the smaller of Harvard’s two boards, the other being the Board of Overseers.Nominations and advice regarding future Corporation appointments may be sent, in confidence, to [email protected]last_img read more


first_imgOn a campus where students tweet almost as much as birds, Social Media Week, celebrated at Saint Mary’s for the next five days, will encourage students to maintain professional online presences.Stacie Jeffirs, director of the Career Crossings Office, said she hopes this week teaches students more about the evolving world of social media.Susan Zhu “Social media continues to be relevant in our personal and professional lives,” Jeffirs said. “So long as this continues, Social Media Week, or at least the programming and messages, will continue to be relevant as well.”Those who incorporate social media into their daily lives should know how to use it to propel their careers, Jeffirs said.“Social media is weaved into the fabric of our everyday lives,” Jeffirs said. “Almost everyone has some sort of social media presence today. Social media has impacted the way we interact with one another, and this extends to recruiting relationships.”Jeffirs said Social Media Week will teach students the value of connecting with potential employers online.“Employers use social media today to recruit candidates, conduct research on candidates and to promote opportunities,” she said. “If you are not using social media in some way to connect with companies and brand yourself, you are missing out on a world of opportunities and will likely be at a disadvantage in today’s job market.”Social Media Week serves as a reminder that polished online profiles benefit students entering the professional world, Jeffirs said.“Our social media footprint is an important one, and what we post has an impact,” she said. “It impacts the work that we do as well as our own personal and professional image. We want students to consider the impact of social media and how they can use it effectively to shape their presence online.”Over the course of the week, events will allow students to take headshots for LinkedIn profiles and receive advice to help them refine their social media profiles. Jeffirs said one of the most important components of the week is Media Chat Monday, during which students and alumnae will exchange advice about social media. The event will take place at 7 p.m. in Rice Commons.“For the kickoff event, students will take away differing perspectives from students and alumnae on how social media has impacted their personal, academic and professional lives,” Jeffirs said. “It is also an opportunity to learn about some of the exciting things Saint Mary’s alumnae are doing in their professions.”Jeffirs said Social Media Week may cause students to rethink how they portray themselves online.“It is important for students to attend the events to hear different perspectives and get advice on how to use social media effectively,” Jeffirs said. “With digital media, what you put out there could come back to haunt you. Clean things up that you don’t want potential employers to see.”This week will teach students the importance of remaining active and consistent on social media, Jeffirs said.“Keep your social media profiles up to date,” she said. “If you no longer use or post to an account, close it. It is better to stick to one or two active accounts than have lots of accounts that you don’t update.”Jeffirs said she is looking forward to this year’s Social Media Week because it will help the Saint Mary’s community grow in knowledge.“I am most excited about being able to share really great and important information with students,” Jeffirs said. “It is always a good feeling when students learn something new and will take it forward with them in life.”Tags: Career Crossings Office, saint mary’s, social media, Social Media Weeklast_img read more
