Inaugural HSPH edX course draws thousands from around the globe

first_imgBeginning last October, thousands of students from around the globe began studying at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) in a totally new way. They studied biostatistics and epidemiology, the building blocks of public health research, at home or in cafés, at any time of day or night, for a few minutes at a time or for hours at a time—as part of HSPH’s first-ever course offered through edX, the online education platform.The course—“Health in Numbers: Quantitative Methods in Clinical and Public Health Research” (PH207x)— was taught by Marcello Pagano, professor of statistical computing, and E. Francis Cook, professor of epidemiology. Both were thrilled with the response to the course.“We were able to keep a huge number of people interested enough in the topics to stay with us for about three months and they spent, on average, about 12 hours a week on the course,” said Pagano.David Hunter, HSPH dean for academic affairs, said that the enthusiastic participation of HSPH in EdX was aimed both at increasing the numbers of trained public health workers around the world and at improving teaching in the School’s residential degree programs.“Online teaching not only increases our global reach, but it provides materials and methods that we hope will make classes at HSPH more flexible and student-centered,” Hunter said. He said the next priority is to have the other elements of the core master of public health curriculum available in edX format. Read Full Storylast_img read more

The State Inspectorate is finally bringing order. The eVisitor system compares ads on Booking.com to catch illegal renters

first_imgApart from the fact that illegal renters lower the price, they do not pay taxes (thus earning more than you) damage directly to you, as well as to the entire tourist destination. The new State Inspectorate has consolidated the tasks of 17 inspections within eight ministries. Thus, market, sanitary, veterinary, agricultural, hunting, forestry, phytosanitary, tourist, mining, inspection of pressure equipment, energy, management of toxic chemicals, labor, construction, environmental protection, nature protection and water inspection are united. Those who do everything according to the Law do not have to be afraid or intimidated by inspections. Recall, in accordance with the new amendments to the Law on Hospitality, which, among other things, requires that tourism inspectors have the opportunity to apply the principle of opportunity, ie the possibility that minor violations can be warned, with a deadline to correct irregularities, not to they immediately print out fines. So, if someone has listed their apartment on Booking.com, it is easy to see if the same landlord is also registered in the eVisitor system. On the other hand, all those who respect the Law and settle all their obligations to the State, turn out to be “fools” towards those who do not. So accordingly, the question arises whether you will report your “colleagues”, friends, neighbors who rent illegally? On the other hand, illegal renters are unfair competition and a big problem of our tourism. In addition to not paying taxes and all other levies, by lowering prices, they destroy the market and thus are unfair competition to all those who pay everything regularly and according to the law. RELATED NEWS: As the inspections merged and with the reorganization of the independent State Inspectorate, the work of the inspections should have been more efficient and functional. In tourism, it should enable a clearer and more concrete fight against the black and gray economy. Certainly, it is in everyone’s interest to suppress the black market, because they are unfair competition to legal landlords. It is in everyone’s interest to combat illegal landlords. Why would they be “smart” and you “fools”. Yes, that is exactly what everyone who pays according to the law turns out to be. center_img Report illegal landlords as well as anyone else who does not comply with the Act. “Advertising on platforms such as Booking.com and Airbnb can also be a reason to conduct inspections. Namely, the Law on Catering stipulates that when advertising and advertising services and displaying messages in promotional materials, the landlord may use only the designation of the prescribed type and the category and type of special standard of the facility determined by the competent office, and when advertising and advertising services with taxpayers from the European Union must indicate the tax number, ie VAT identification number”, They explain in the inspectorate for Poslovni dnevnik. TAX ADMINISTRATION MOVES FISCALIZATION SUPERVISION IN THE ACCOMMODATION SERVICE SECTOR Everyone must pay taxes and all levies prescribed by law, including landlords. We need fair market competition, so let the one who is better, more creative, more proactive, more capable “win” and the one who invests more in quality and gives his personal contribution as a host. Non-payment of taxes, non-registration of workers and illegal landlords are the cancer of the wound of our tourism, and the State Inspectorate will focus on that. In order to carry out better control and bring order to the black zone, under the new law, inspectors will be able to enter facilities that have not reported renting accommodation. It is the tourism sector, renters and catering facilities, announced by the State Inspectorate, that will be in focus before the start of the peak tourist season. The unified State Inspectorate began operations on Monday (April 01st). How to find illegal renters? Simply. Assistance to the State Inspectorate will be eVisitor data where all renters must register, and illegal renters will be compared with data / advertisements on the strongest booking portals, such as Booking.com and Airbnb.com.

Hicks leads Syracuse players, Fort Drum troops through workout

first_img Published on August 12, 2014 at 1:11 pm Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesse FORT DRUM, N.Y. — The rain forced Syracuse to “call an audible.”The original plan was for a joint workout between the Orange and Fort Drum military personnel to take place outside. Instead, SU assistant athletics director for athletic performance Will Hicks’ voice bounced off the walls of the Fort Drum “Commons” as he put everyone through a football routine.And with Hicks and the rest of the program leading the troops through a new workout, the tight space drew the two groups together.“Coach Shafer can say more about this all the time, but one of the big things we believe in is you always got to adapt to adjusting elements,” Hicks said. “We called an audible with the way the weather was and I think it worked out better than it would’ve been outside.“It was a little more intimate, a little closer. You talk about hot yoga, that was a hot stretching class. It was a little rough in there.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange arrived at Fort Drum on Monday and it will start practices on Tuesday afternoon. SU head coach Scott Shafer wants his team to have military interaction every day, and Tuesday’s dose was Hicks’ indoor workout. Hicks said that since Syracuse is going to be following the military’s lead for most of the week, he and Shafer wanted to take a chance to show them what SU is all about.They certainly did that, as a bevy of core and leg exercises proved difficult for the troops.“They can carry 60-pound backpacks but some of them couldn’t do high knees,” senior linebacker Dyshawn Davis said. “They thought they were doing it right but some of them looked funny doing it.”After some cool-down stretching, Davis led his team and the troops through the same ritual the Orange repeats before every practice (video below). The troops were hesitant to join in at first, but by the end of the post-workout huddle they were dancing and hugging the players.“It was great. Them guys don’t even get that loud for practice,” Davis said. “Then we come here and work out with these guys and everyone wants to get all loud and excited…“I felt it. It felt good being in there getting the crowd right. The soldiers were in there jumping around and getting pretty excited as well. It was a great experience.” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
