Higher education: Challenging the iVy League model ...









Apr 4th 2012, 16:49 by M.B.| NEW YORK










“THE first elite university to be launched in America in over a century.” Ben Nelson, who cut his entrepreneurial teeth as chief executive of Snapfish, a photo website, does not shy away from making big claims. 


But he has every reason to boast. 




On April 3rd Benchmark Capital announced that it will fund Minerva, which plans to welcome its first class of students in September 2014, to the tune of $25m—one of the biggest seed investments of a leading Silicon Valley venture firm ever. 



What is more, the new university’s advisory board will be chaired by Larry Summers, a former president of Harvard University, and count among its members Bob Kerrey, a former senator and head of the New School in New York, and Pat Harker, president of the University of Delaware and a former dean of the Wharton School.




This is a brave moment to launch a for-profit university. There is much talk of a “bubble in higher education”—an over-expansion fuelled by the ready availability of student loans to pay for courses that often fail to lead to the lucrative careers promised in advertisements. 


And for-profit universities, many of which deliver more and more education online (as Minerva will do), have been widely criticized, including for low-standards and overly aggressive sales practices. 



Their shares have been targeted by well-known short-sellers. Mr Nelson insists that by aiming at the elite student market, Minerva will steer well away from such problems.



The presence of heavyweights of higher education on the board reflects the fact that Minerva is not aiming to displace incumbents, but rather to fill a gap they have left.


 “I don’t want or need to disrupt Harvard. I care about the kid who should have got into Harvard but didn’t,” says Mr Nelson. 


Currently, America’s 30 or so elite universities turn away over 90% of applicants (the vast majority of whom meet the qualification standards) as the result of a process he describes as a “lottery”. In particular, Minerva is aiming to tap into the demand for an elite American education from the developing world’s rising middle class—for the “children of a Wipro middle manager from India, or a Foxconn line operator from China,” in the words of Mr Nelson.



Minerva aspires to reinvent everything, from the business model and the curriculum to the way in which teaching is delivered. 



The plan is for admission standards to be higher than current Ivy League levels, and for courses to be tough enough for students to fail if they do not pull their weight (a rarity in American education, except in cases of extreme incompetence). 


The curriculum will focus on skills rather than traditional academic studies and be based on four pillars: critical thinking, use of data, understanding complex systems and leading through effective communication. The course content will be outsourced, drawing from what is readily available online and through a “Minerva Prize” competition to get leading educators to design classes. It will be delivered via the internet to classes of 25 students and a professor will then engage them in debate. Students will be located in several cities around the world, and be expected to move to a different location each year.



Minerva opted to be a for-profit university because “this is the best way to ensure it is financially sustainable,” says Mr Nelson. The seed money raised from Benchmark should be enough to enable the university to open, but another round of funding will be needed to complete the job.


 Assuming Minerva can get accredited as a university, which Mr Nelson says should be straightforward, the biggest challenge will be persuading the first students to sign up for what will be an untested course quite unlike anything currently on offer in American higher education.



The price will certainly help. 



Mr Nelson is confident that he will be able to deliver a top quality education for under $20,000 a year—less than half the price of attending an existing elite American university. 



The plan seems to have convinced Mr Summers, at least, judging by his comments. 



America “must succeed in providing a better education to more people at a lower cost,” he recently said, adding that, “as in every other domain, much of the impetus for change will come from new entrants.”

USA to sink Ghost Ship that floated across the Pacific Ocean dislodged by Japan tsunami ...








          


By MARK THIESSEN and RACHEL D'ORO









Canada's Department of National Defence photograph shows a Japanese fishing vessel, …








In a photo provided by the U.S. …



OVER THE GULF OF ALASKA (AP) — The lonely voyage of a rusting, unmanned Japanese ship that has floated thousands of miles since it was dislodged by last year's tsunami appeared to be coming to an end in the Gulf of Alaska.



The U.S. Coast Guard was gearing up to use cannon fire to sink the shrimping vessel, which was floating 180 miles southwest of the southeast Alaska town of Sitka Thursday morning.



"Something like this hasn't been done, based on the tsunami," Coast Guard spokesman Paul Webb said. "It's a new one for all of us."



The 164-foot Ryou-Un Maru, which has no lights or communications system, has a tank that could carry more than 2,000 gallons of diesel fuel, but officials don't know how much, if any, is aboard. Either way, the government says the move is safer environmentally than letting the ship continue to drift.



"It's less risky than it would be running into shore or running into (maritime) traffic," Webb said.




The vessel had been destined for scrapping when the Japan earthquake struck, so there is no cargo on board, according to Webb. He said it's likely there is little or no fuel on board because the ship has been traveling high in the water, indicating a light ballast.



Webb said he doesn't know who owns the Ryou-Un Maru, which has been traveling about 1 mile per hour in the past days.




A Coast Guard cutter was at the location of the ghost ship Thursday with plans to fire cannons loaded with high explosive rounds to sink the vessel in calm seas and clear weather. Webb said the cutter would fire the cannons from several hundred feet away. The goal is to punch holes in the Ryou-Un Maru and sink it. A Coast Guard C-130 plane crew will monitor the operation.



The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency studied the problem and decided it is safer to sink the ship and let the fuel evaporate in the open water.



The Coast Guard will warn other ships to avoid the area, and will observe from an HC-130 Hercules airplane.




The vessel has been adrift from Hokkaido, Japan, since it was launched by the tsunami caused by the magnitude-9.0 earthquake that struck Japan in March 2011. About 5 million tons of debris were swept into the ocean by the tsunami.



The Japan earthquake triggered the world's worst nuclear crisis since the Chernobyl accident in 1986, but Alaska state health and environmental officials have said there's little need to be worried that debris landing on Alaska shores will be contaminated by radiation.




They have been working with federal counterparts to gauge the danger of debris including material affected by a damaged nuclear power plant, to see if Alaska residents, seafood or wild game could be affected.




In January, a half dozen large buoys suspected to be from Japanese oyster farms appeared at the top of Alaska's panhandle and may be among the first debris from the tsunami.

PORTS: Long Beach port formally signs biggest ever lease agreement ....







   



By Ronald D. WhiteTimes Staff Writer

April 4, 2012, 7:32 p.m.



Port of Long Beach officials and executives from the shipping company Orient Overseas Container Line formally signed off on the port's biggest ever lease agreement. 


The ceremony took place in Hong Kong on Tuesday, but port officials didn't announce it until Wednesday afternoon.



The agreement commits OOCL to a $4.6-billion, 40-year lease of the port's new Middle Harbor container terminal, which is under construction.



“I can’t overstate the significance of this agreement,” said J. Christopher Lytle, executive director of the nation's second-busiest cargo container port. “It is the largest and most far-reaching terminal lease ever at the Port of Long Beach.”


Port officials had announced the impending deal in January. The lease gives OOCL and its subsidiary, the Long Beach Container Terminal, exclusive use of the facility for 40 years. 



Port officials say that Middle Harbor will be their most advanced terminal, adding that it will employ technology designed to mitigate its environmental impact.



“The Middle Harbor Redevelopment Project is our flagship model for the ‘Port of the Future,’” Lytle said. “Once completed, it will ensure both the competitiveness of the Port of Long Beach and our customer, OOCL, for decades to come."

The team will undertake assessment of the educational, developmental, and other needs of children and young people who rely on the therapeutic and practical support of the Mango Tree Centre. This process is known as capacity building.

 

They will also provide educational and therapeutic support to Mango Tree clients. The team will focus specifically on children with autism, vision-impairment, and multiple impairments.

The team is led by Jim Good, a graduate and post-graduate student of Nazarene Theological College-Brisbane and a special education teacher at Narbethong. After visiting Mango Tree in August 2011, Good shared about the work of the center with his colleagues at the Narbethong school and the potential for their involvement in and support of people with disabilities in Tonga. There was an overwhelmingly positive response. Since that time, the team and the school have been excitedly preparing for this visit, more recently with a team meeting every Thursday morning for the eight weeks leading up to March 30.

 


The team's commitment to capacity building will be practically demonstrated in their involvement of a young man with a physical disability who works at Mango Tree, in addition to their partnership with Mango Tree Director In-Kwon Kim, his wife Jeong-Seok, and the families and carers of people with disabilities with whom they work.

The Parents & Citizen's Association at Narbethong has been enthusiastic about the teachers' support and raised funds for much-needed equipment and materials for Mango Tree. A support-raising afternoon tea was held, raising hundreds of dollars, and a local business also made a generous donation. In total, approximately US$2,000 in funds and equipment was gathered. Avis Australia agreed to provide support through their Tongan counterpart by supplying a rental van for the team's use during their week at Mango Tree.

Prayer is requested for Jim Good and the Narbethong State Special School during this time of ministry to people with disabilities in Tonga, and for the group's partnership with Mango Tree.

$1 Gives Incurably Sick Children a Fun Respite 


It's hard to talk about, but not every child grows up to be an adult. Even with the best medical care in the world, there are still conditions and diseases that we're helpless to stop. 
 
Ryan House is for kids who won't live past 20. 
 
It's a fun place for children and their families to visit just take a break from the stress of constant 24/7 home care, and it's a place where, eventually, that child can pass away.
