International equity ETFs saw inflows across all regions, spread among EAFE, emerging market and global ETFs.Inflows into bonds inflows were mild in February. This was in contrast to previous months, when fixed-income ETFs were attracting consistently large inflows.Vanguard Investments Canada Inc. had a strong month thanks to inflows of $234 million into Vanguard Aggregate Bond ETF, as the ETF’s management fee was recently cut to eight basis points (bps) from 12 bps. Vanguard also launched a suite of low-cost asset-allocation ETFs for different risk profiles, including Vanguard Growth ETF Portfolio, which attracted close to $70 million in inflows.The top outflows in February were primarily in the fixed-income asset class, sparked by inflation and interest rate fears. Outflows were spread along the maturity and credit spectrum, except for floating-rate ETFs, which received inflows in response to short-term interest rates moving higher at the beginning of the year.Canadian ETF inflows did not encounter any obstacles from the market sell-off that took place in early February. In fact, year-to-date inflows are slightly outpacing the same period from 2017.Inflows into Canada’s top three providers — iShares, BMO Global Asset Management Inc. and Vanguard — accounted for half of the total, but new entrants are gaining traction.

CU-Boulder South Land Use Assessment Accepted By Regents

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Nov. 7, 2001 The University of Colorado Board of Regents today accepted a conceptual land use assessment study for the CU-Boulder South campus, concluding a three-month process of seeking feedback and input from university constituents, including the public, on the general concepts for land use on the 308-acre site. The conceptual land use assessment for the entire CU-Boulder South property was contracted to Shapins Associates of Boulder in order to identify potential for building and outdoor uses including locations for the CU-Boulder South athletic and recreational facilities that are expected to occupy about 75 acres. The concept of using CU-Boulder South for athletic and recreational facilities has been approved by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education (CCHE), as outlined in the current Campus Master Plan. Paul Tabolt, vice chancellor for administration and Jeff Lipton, executive director of facilities management, presented the conceptual land use assessment to the Regents’ Capital Planning Committee yesterday. The map shows 127.7 acres for building potential, 45.2 acres for flood storage, 32 acres that could be either flood water storage or buildings or some combination of the two, 81.5 acres for natural areas, 10.4 acres for ponds, 2.7 acres for a potential parkway, and 2.8 acres for roads. The university has agreed to create low areas where floodwater could be stored in the event of a flood on South Boulder Creek and where athletic and recreational fields could be co-located. If such flood storage areas are built, flooding danger to properties downstream will be decreased. “The university fully intends to be responsive to the flood safety issues affecting Boulder citizens while protecting our investment in the property,” Lipton said at the committee meeting. “Right now we are only planning to develop a portion of this property for athletic and recreational use,” said Lipton. “But in order to best locate the initial sports facilities, we needed to map out the entire property to determine where athletic and recreational uses should best be located, where flood storage should be designated and what areas are potentially usable as building sites in the future.” The map incorporates wetlands as required. Protection of the sporanthes orchid, which is present in very small numbers on the property, also is addressed. The land use assessment has been reviewed by the Boulder Campus Planning Commission, the University Design Review Board, the CU Real Estate Council, the Chancellor’s Executive Committee, City of Boulder and Boulder County staff, the Chancellor’s Community Advisory Council, the Boulder Economic Council, members of the Boulder City Council, Boulder County Commissioners, the Boulder Faculty Assembly Executive Committee, the Regents Capital Planning Committee, and the public at an open house.last_img read more

5 steps for branding yourself online

first_img Published: March 6, 2019 • By Career Services If you Googled yourself, what would you want to show up?Browsing through the first few pages, you might be surprised. With social media and the digital age, you’ll find that you have way less privacy than you thought you did. Now, more than ever, it’s important to control what personal information is floating around in cyberspace.This is especially true during the job search. About 80 percent of employers will use Google, social media and professional networking sites like Handshake and LinkedIn to vet job applicants. Some are even searching for candidates online without even posting a job or internship first.If a recruiter wants to find a CU Boulder student, the first place they will look is Handshake. So, here’s how to brand yourself and control what information employers find on this job search platform.Step 1: Create an accountThe Handshake account that you create is a great way to enhance your personal brand. It tells the story of your academic journey and the type of professional you want to become. By having an active and public account on Handshake, you can be viewed by more than 14,000 employers around the world who are looking for CU Boulder talent.Use your long email address ([email protected]) to set up your account.Step 2: Fill out your profileIf you have a résumé, the first step is to upload your document. Handshake will automatically fill in your profile with details from your résumé. You might want to clean it up and make sure your major, expected graduation date and GPA were added correctly. If you don’t have a résumé, you’ll need to fill these details in manually.Add a professional photo or headshot so an employer can put a face to the name. Your photo helps to personalize and humanize the brand you’ve created for yourself. It’s easy for them to make a connection with your profile when they can “see” who’s behind it.Step 3: Add work experience, university clubs and course workEmployers often find students by searching for specific companies they’ve worked for. List out your work experience in reverse chronological order, showing your most recent work experience first. You’ll want to list on-campus jobs and volunteer experiences here as well.Be sure to list any student clubs or organizations you are involved with. This not only shows involvement on campus and leadership skills but can also give employers a look into your unique interests outside of the classroom.Step 4: List your skillsThis might be the most important step. Skills are the primary field that employers use to search for job or internship candidates. By listing your skills, you are showcasing character traits and unique abilities that make you employable. You can list soft skills such as communication and teamwork or technical skills such as data analytics or project management.The top searched terms in Handshake for 2018 were marketing, engineering, human resources, psychology, tax, communication, advertising, economics, banking, security and accounting.Step 5: Make your profile publicIt might go without saying, but if you want employers to find you, you need to be findable. This means you need to make your profile public. You are five times more likely to be found and messaged by employers if you do this step.Building your personal brand and controlling your online presence may seem like a tall task, but starting small with profiles like Handshake can help guide you in the right direction. If you have question about your Handshake account, stop by Career Services during drop-in hours or chat with a career development advisor online.Categories:Career DevelopmentCampus Community Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-maillast_img read more

What’s for lunch? Try these dining center hacks

first_img Published: Jan. 23, 2020 As you visit the dining centers day in and day out, you may start to get tired of all the same food choices available. While our dining facilities do a great job keeping menus fresh and new, we know it can still be difficult to keep your meals exciting. These fun meal ideas will liven up your next lunch.Meal plans, Munch Money and Campus CashAll three dining centers on campus (the C4C Dining Center, Sewall Dining Center and Village Dining Center) accept meal plans, Munch Money and Campus Cash. The C4C and Village Dining Centers also accept credit/debit cards.Students living in the residence halls have a meal plan, providing 15 or 19 meals per week plus a balance of Munch Money. Students living in Graduate & Family Housing, Bear Creek Apartments or living off campus can purchase a Block Meal Plan at any time during the fall or spring. Campus Cash can be added to your Buff OneCard online or at the Buff OneCard office.Freshly cooked grilled cheeseMake your own grilled cheese in the C4C by grabbing all the necessary ingredients from the deli station. Assemble the grilled cheese sandwich and finish it off by cooking it in the panini press.Build your own cobb saladAll of our major dining centers utilize the salad bar as a nutritious option. The salad bar has all the ingredients you need to make a delicious cobb salad—lettuce, tomato, deli meat, hard-boiled eggs and avocados. Top your salad off with bacon bits! Bacon on everything!Speaking of bacon: If you’re in the C4C, put bacon bits from Smoke n’ Grill on foods like mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and soup to add a bit of pizzazz to your next meal.Hot wingsWho doesn’t love a hot wing? We suggest creating your own! Grab wings from the Persian station in C4C, then add hot sauce from the Grill. C4C chickpea salad sandwich (vegan alternative to chicken salad)Mash up chickpeas in a bowl, mix with vegan mayo (all the mayo served in the dining center is vegan), add dill from spice bar, add grapes or Craisins from the salad bar, almond slices from the Asian station, Dijon mustard and finally some thyme from the spice station.Spicy hummusHummus with any veggie is perfect for any meal; spice it up by squirting about 2 teaspoons of hot sauce from the Grill into a cup of hummus and mixing it up. Pair it with carrots, sliced cucumbers or celery from the salad bar for a healthy snack, or use it as a spread on your favorite sandwich.Categories:Mind & BodyCampus Community Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-maillast_img read more

GG Lauds Cooperative Movement

Sir Patrick Allen, has expressed support for the Cooperative movement in the Caribbean and Jamaica, stating that against the background of economic instability worldwide, the movement could contribute to economic growth. He says that it would be difficult to fully quantify the impact that the Cooperative movement has had in Jamaica, adding that the extraordinary success of the movement is deserving of celebration. “Today we have a total of 213 cooperatives in a variety of sectors, at the grassroots level cooperatives have bonded people, created important synergies, and fueled a passion for social engagement,” he stated. The Governor-General was giving the keynote address at the International Year of Cooperatives awards banquet, being staged jointly by the Caribbean Confederation of Credit Unions (CCCU) and the Cooperative Development Society of Jamaica, at the Ritz Carlton Resort and Spa, in Montego Bay on Saturday, June 23. He said that the local Credit Unions are at present demonstrating the required spirit of social activism, and commended them for their many social outreach programmes.  Turning to his “I believe” initiative, the Governor-General described the cooperative movement as an aspect of what is right with Jamaica.  Advertisementslast_img read more

Agricultural Credit Board has done Yeoman Service – Clarke

first_imgRelatedAgricultural Credit Board has done Yeoman Service – Clarke RelatedAgricultural Credit Board has done Yeoman Service – Clarke Advertisements Agricultural Credit Board has done Yeoman Service – Clarke AgricultureDecember 6, 2012center_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Roger Clarke, has commended the Agricultural Credit Board (ACB) for 100 years of assistance to the agricultural sector. He said the Board has done yeoman’s service, particularly as it relates to facilitating rural development. The Minister was speaking at the ACB 100th anniversary celebration and awards ceremony held on December 5 at the Four Seasons Hotel in New Kingston. A total of 46 long-serving employees were recognised for their years of dedicated service to the institution. Minister Clarke stated that the People’s Cooperative (PC) Banks, regulated by the ACB, have been invaluable to the farming community. He noted, for example, that “last year, when the Irish potato farmers were in difficulty, it was the PC Banks that came to their rescue.” He also highlighted the role the PC Banks and the ACB played in assisting egg farmers to supply hotels with liquefied eggs, when they could not find adequate market for their product. “I turned to the PC Banks and they gave $15 million to help put up the liquid egg plant, and I want to commend them for that,” the Minister remarked. He also cited interventions by the ACB, the PC Banks and the Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ), amounting to some $200 million, for rice production. “What this is saying is that the commitment to agriculture and rural development is unshakable,” he stated. The Board, which has negotiated some $1.25 billion over the past two years for a number of crops, has made significant contribution to agriculture including, since 2007, a grant of $5 million to the Jamaica 4-H Clubs for a goat rehabilitation project; $6 million to the Jamaica Cane Farmers’ Association to assist in keeping the industry afloat; and a grant of $6 million for the Ministry’s land titling initiative. The ACB has also made significant contributions to the Government’s banana and plantain rehabilitation efforts, with grants totaling $11 million; and has also assisted with negotiating special financing for crops such as rice, Irish potato, ginger, and turmeric. The National People’s Co-operative Bank of Jamaica Limited (NPCB), which is registered as an agricultural loan society under the ACB Act, provides a range of services to its members/clients. These cover a range of savings instruments, loan facilities to the micro, small and medium-scale enterprises (MSMEs), legal services (e.g. wills and land titling), bill payment services and family indemnity plan insurance.

Paddles to Help Navigate Loss

first_img Email For many, the whisper of a canoe paddle in the water has signified the beginning of a new journey. Now, with the help of local artists, a canoe paddle could mean supporting someone else as they navigate through the heartache of losing a loved one.On Thursday, Jan. 20, the Tamarack Grief Resource Center will host its annual Flathead Valley fundraiser dinner to benefit A Camp to Remember. The dinner and live auction, featuring the artists’ paddles, begins at 6 p.m. at the Lodge at Whitefish Lake. The paddles have become something of a tradition for this dinner after other events proved their popularity, TGRC Associate Director Jim Parker said. This year’s paddles are used as a canvas for artists Nancy Dunlop Cawdrey, Carol Hagen, Sam Dauenhauer, Brett Thuma, Curt Shugart, Lorinda Smith, Kelly Apgar and John Rawlings, among others.“The paddle art has become the sort of signature piece of these events,” he said. “We’re just thrilled to have these incredible artists donate their time for Tamarack.”Some of the paddles can be viewed in various locations throughout the valley, including the Lodge at Whitefish Lake and Wheeler Jewelry Store in Kalispell. TGRC is a Montana nonprofit organization that helps children, adults and families deal with the hardships and complications of grief through special bereavement camps held at Flathead and Georgetown lakes.Their work began 15 years ago and continues each summer. There are two “A Camp to Remember” sessions each summer, which focus on children ages 8 to 14. The staff and volunteer-to-camper ratio at these camps is about three to one, Parker said.Last summer, there were 53 kids at the Flathead Lake camp, Parker said, and they generally have between 40 and 60 kids attend each year. TGRC also hosts women’s retreats and teen programs.The camps and retreats denote the beginning of a long friendship between the families and TGRC, built on the grieving process.“It’s not something we just do and then we’re done,” Parker said. “It’s something that we grow with and we journey with.”Though TGRC has retained donors through the recession, Parker said events like the benefit dinner are paramount for a nonprofit in these economic times. The money raised through the live paddle auction, the silent auction and the ticket sales will go toward the costs of maintaining their summer programs.No one is turned away from camp, Parker said, even if they can’t afford it. “This is one way we can try to give back to many of our supporters through a really fun night and to bring community together. It’s part of what we believe will help all of us,” Parker said. The benefit dinner will feature a no-host cocktail hour and music starting at 6 p.m., a sit-down dinner at 7 p.m., a silent auction throughout the evening, and the live paddle art auction beginning around 8 p.m.Tickets cost $75 per person, $140 per couple or $1,000 for a sponsor table of eight. Parker said tickets sales have eclipsed last year’s figures already, though plenty are still available. Parker said TGRC does have expansion goals in the future, but they want to make sure they grow responsibly.“As we grow, we want to make sure we grow with excellence and grow with sustainability,” he said. “We want to survive for a long time.”For more information and ticketing information, visit www.tamarackgriefresourcecenter.org.

Man found guilty of Letterkenny murder

first_img Journey home will be easier – Paul Hegarty Pinterest Harps come back to win in Waterford Google+ Acquittal of co-accusedA second man, Dariusz Weckowicz (51), was acquitted of Bogdan’s murder by the direction of the trial judge Justice Patrick McCarthy. Mr Weckowicz was seen on CCTV with Grzegorski in Letterkenny on the day of the killing, and blood spatter on his clothes placed him at the scene when Bogdan was killed. His defence counsel Brendan Grehan SC said that the evidence showed nothing more than that he was present at the time, but not that he took part in the attack. He suggested that his client was “passed out” on the sofa. Justice McCarthy ruled that the evidence could not lead to a guilty verdict and directed that he be acquitted.The trial had earlier heard from Bogdan’s housemate Adam Kycwaik, who confronted Mr Weckowicz days after his friend’s body had been found.He said: “I asked him whether he was there and he said he was there. I asked if someone else was with him and he said ‘yes’.”He said Mr Weckowicz told him that he was so drunk he couldn’t stop the attack on Bogdan. “He was swearing that he did not touch Bogdan. He was swearing on his knees.” Facebook Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows A Polish man who came to Ireland to find a better life instead met a tragic death, his brother said on Tuesday after his killer was found guilty of murder.Krzystof Grzegorski (22), was found guilty today of murdering fellow Polish man Bogdan Michalkiewicz (41), at the victim’s home in Westside Apartments, Letterkenny, Co Donegal on May 13th 2013.Grzegorski had pleaded guilty to manslaughter but the prosecution rejected the plea.The jury came to their unanimous decision after a little over five hours.Bogdan’s brother Tomasz, who has sat through every day of the three-week trial, wrote a victim impact statement that was read to the court by Garda Siobhan McGowan.It said: “My only family left is my sister and mother back in Poland. My only family in Ireland was Bogdan, who came here with me in 2005 to look for a better life than we could get in Poland, but instead of that he met a tragic death.”Trial judge Justice Patrick McCarthy sentenced Grzegorski to the mandatory term of life imprisonment before prison officers led the convicted man from court.The sentence was backdated to May 26th 2014 when Grzegorski was first taken into custody.Evidence in trialIn his trial summary prosecuting counsel Alex Owens SC said that the evidence showed that Krzystof Grzegorski went to Bogdan’s flat to retrieve a mobile phone that had been left there some days earlier. An argument broke out but Grzegorski told gardai during interviews in 2014 that he couldn’t remember what sparked the vicious attack.Bogdan suffered 46 wounds to the head and face, including stab wounds and injuries that pathologist Dr Alison Armour said were consistent with punching, kicking or striking with a blunt object. Grzegorski cut his throat and stabbed him another 17 times in the abdomen. He stamped on his chest, with enough force to leave the imprint of his shoes.At the scene gardai found three knives and the leg of a coffee table that the prosecution said the killer used to bludgeon and stab his victim. Mr Owens said that Grzegorski also dropped a television, a heavy, old-style cathode ray tube, on his victim’s head. Dr Armour found nine stab wounds to the back of Bogdan’s tongue. She said that she had never seen such injuries in her 28 years as a pathologist and could not explain how the killer inflicted them.She discovered defensive injuries to his hands, arms and shins and said she believed Bogdan endured pain and suffering before death.She added that the damage to his skull, forehead and the bones of his face had caused “severe disruption and disfigurement”.The trial also heard that Grzegorski was drinking heavily at the time of the killing. Det Garda Alfie McHale said that gardai in Letterkenny had gotten to know Grzegorski as a problem drinker aged 14. By the time he was 16 he had a conviction for being drunk in public and a danger to himself or others. He was 19 when he murdered Bogdan. Four times over that weekend Grzegorski was caught on CCTV stealing vodka from supermarkets in Letterkenny. The last occasion was soon after he left Bogdan’s apartment having already carried out the fatal attack. Security guards at Dunnes Stores saw him steal the bottle and called gardai. Grzegorski was arrested and spent the next two days in garda custody. After his release he moved to England where he worked for a period. When he heard that another man had been arrested for Bogdan’s killing he decided to come back and confess to his part in Bogdan’s death.Defence counsel Michael Bowman SC described the attack on Bogdan as “heinous, egregious and grotesque”. Mr Bowman said his client’s behaviour at the time of the killing and the extreme violence of the attack were irrational and illogical. He said the evidence showed that his client was in a “fog of intoxication” and did not know what he was doing when he attacked Bogdan. Twitter DL Debate – 24/05/21 WhatsApp Mr Owens said during his summary of the trial that a bottle was delivered to Bogdan’s house that afternoon, but that Grzegorski, having already killed Bogdan, drank it himself.

By PAUL GOTHAMROCHESTER, N.Y. — A year ago, the Holley and Wheatland-Chili girls’ soccer teams played a pair of contests decided by a combined total of three goals.On Thursday night, the theme of narrow margins continued. This time, though, Gary Ward’s Wheatland-Chili Wildcats needed a rally to come away with a victory.A familiar name led the way.Senior Niyah Rosado collected a pair of goals in a 2-nil Wheatland-Chili (2-0) win in Genesee Region action.After struggling to muster little to no offense for the first 19 minutes of the match, Rosado put the Wildcats on the board with a counter-attack goal.Trailing 1-o in the 27th minute of the match, freshman Emily Parker led the program’s all-time leading scorer into the open field where Rosado won a foot race with a Holley defender and finished at the near post.27’ On the counterattack, freshman Emily Parker with the long lead to Niyah Rosado who levels the score at one. @WCWgvs pic.twitter.com/eznPEXMaho— Paul Gotham (@PickinSplinters) October 8, 2020“She’s always going to get a couple of opportunities,” Ward said. “She’s always going to get some chances no matter what they do to her.”Rosado’s shot on goal was just Wheatland-Chili’s second of the match up to that point as the Holley backline managed to contain the Wildcats.“They play a little stopper-sweeper game,” Ward explained. “We didn’t change the point of attack enough which you need to do when a team is playing a sweeper.“This is something that always plagues my teams. It’s probably bad coaching, but early in the season we can’t seem to understand that we can’t play down the middle. We try to push it down the middle, push it down the middle, push it down the middle. The times that we took it outside are when we had some success. We could then bypass the sweeper.”Rosado connected on an unassisted goal with 17:27 left in the match to lift W-C. The marker was her 118th of her career.“She’s not a hundred percent,” Ward said of the 5-foot-3 forward. “We took her off at the end. She got really banged up on Tuesday against Byron-Bergen (a 1-0 Wildcats’ win) and didn’t practice yesterday. Managed to get out there today. She’s just a great kid, humble.”Like her first goal, Rosado’s game winner came when she found open space in a counter situation.“They manned up on Niyah,” Ward said of Holley’s defensive effort. “What she has had to learn over the past year or so is that when teams concentrate so much on her that she needs to find ways to give the ball up to other people.“As the game went on, she got better and better at that. We had some chances and didn’t finish. Many of the passes were from her. She’s good with the ball, but she’s learning now that when things are really clogged she needs to find somebody else. Somebody’s got to be open if they have all these people around her.”Freshman Samantha Bates gave Holley the early lead with an assist from Kayleigh Neale. Holley had a chance to double their lead moments later but a shot caromed off the post.The Hawks made a late push to tie the game. A pair of corner kicks, though, did not produce a tying goal.“They weren’t intimidated by us; that’s for sure,” Ward said. “They play hard. They don’t lay down. Their program is a really solid program. They’ve got some really good players. They play a nice short game.”last_img read more
