La Opinión: Trump "ya quemó puentes" con la comunidad latina, dicen líderes y activistas hispanos

La Opinión: Trump "ya quemó puentes" con la comunidad latina, dicen líderes y activistas hispanos

. . . "The Trump campaign is doing too little too late to engage Latino leaders and voters at this point in the election season to gain momentum," said Jessica Lavariega-Monforti, Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Political Science at Pace University in New York City.  "By and large Latinos are issue-based voters, and the issues most important to voters in Latino communities go beyond immigration. Trump and his campaign have made it clear that they do not understand the Latino communities, and, frankly, have engaged in racists attacks against Latinos for over a year at this point. It is not clear that any additional outreach by his camp will help him with these voters."

. . . The three-day workshop, organised by the Goethe Institute and mJangale, a Senegalese after-school programme, aims to improve students' literacy, numeracy, and foreign language skills.

Christelle Scharff, co-founder of mJangale and professor of computer science at Pace University in New York, teaches participants to use MIT App Inventor - a drag-and-drop tool allowing users to create a basic phone app.

The students follow her every click on a computer screen projected on the wall.

"The goal is to introduce young people to computing, as well as to make them more knowledgeable about the environment," Scharff explained, walking between the groups to check their progress.

"So it's applying computing to something. We didn't want kids to just develop an app, but also to gain knowledge in another area."

U.S. News & World Report: "4 Ways Social Media Can Help You Choose an Online Degree Program"

. . . Engage with current online students and alumni: Features like Facebook groups and LinkedIn networks might be helpful, experts say.

"I think that's the most important thing for anybody – is to get a sense of how someone who's gone through the program or someone who's in the program, what's their opinion of it," says Catherine Dwyer, chair of information technology at Pace University's Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, who researches social media.

. . . “Reorganization is an attempt to let Trump be Trump with some refinements,” said David Caputo, president emeritus and professor of Political Science at Pace University.

“We will have to see the tenor of the TV ads and the campaign behavior moving forward to see if a desire to win, which means — to broaden his appeal, wins out over ideology,” Caputo said.

Fast Company: "Set Sail As A High-Seas Solopreneur"

. . . According to U.S. Navy Commander (Ret.) and Pace University professor Andrew Coggins, staying connected on the open ocean is easier, thanks to the airline and cruise industries. Over the past 10–15 years, they've successfully lobbied the government to open up more satellite bandwidth to the commercial sector in order to offer passengers phone connectivity and Wi-Fi.

. . . Trump's plan to admit only people "who share our values and respect our people" didn't indicate how it would be applied. It also didn't say whether all visa holders -- visitor, H-1B and green card -- would be subject to an ideological litmus test.

And what is the correct answer to such a question about American values?

"The immigration system, as it currently stands, could not process additional vetting without creating backlogs and increasing wait times for applicants. At the same time, it is unclear how these policy changes would increase safety against a terrorist attack," said Lavariega-Monforti.

The Sentinel: "CV grad volunteering at Olympics proud to be an American"

The Sentinel: "CV grad volunteering at Olympics proud to be an American"

A Cumberland Valley High School grad is getting closer to her dream of someday working full-time for the Olympics or Special Olympics.

Mechanicsburg native Carolyn Phillips is spending two weeks in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, volunteering at the 2016 Olympic Games where she works in press operations.

But this isn’t Phillips’ first experience with the Olympics — last year she volunteered at the 2015 Special Olympics World Games.

Since graduating from CV, Phillips has been studying political science — with a minor in nonprofit studies and history — at Pace University in New York City. She also interned with the Los Angeles bid committee for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, as well as the Special Olympics New York and Special Olympics Southern California.

For a lifelong fan of the Olympics, getting to watch the action in person has been a “fantastic opportunity,” Phillips said.

WPIX: "University helps Army Reservist transition from combat to classroom"

WPIX: "University helps Army Reservist transition from combat to classroom"

Watch the video: http://pix11.com/2016/08/12/university-helps-army-reservist-transition-from-combat-to-classroom/

NEW YORK — For many returning veterans, getting a college education is a priority. But paying for it isn’t always easy.

That’s why PIX11 has partnered with the Veterans Education Challenge (VEC). It’s an organization dedicated to sending U.S. military vets to college, and provides them with needed scholarships that the GI Bill does not cover.

VEC founders, Avis and Bruce Richards, started the “Veterans Education $1 Million Matching Challenge” to help fund higher education for returning veterans.

Every dollar donated between Veterans Day 2015 and Veterans Day 2016 will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Richards up to one million dollars.

We share the story of U.S. Army Reservist Jonathan Rosario who appreciates college not only for the knowledge he has gained in his chosen field of information technology, but also for how it has helped him with post traumatic stress.

Rosario had been suffering from PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The symptoms surfaced when he returned home following a four year active duty tour in the military.

“I didn’t really communicate with a lot of people cause I felt like I didn’t have anything in common with them,“ the 30-year-old man from Staten Island said. “I kept to myself, quiet, only did what I had to do.”

The attacks on Sept. 11, and his father, a police captain who worked tirelessly in the recovery effort at Ground Zero, motivated Jonathan to join the U.S. Army years later.

“I just wanted to be a part of something that was bigger than myself,” he said.

Jonathan had two years of college under his belt when he enlisted in the army as an infantryman with the 101st Airborne Division. He was deployed to Afghanistan for nine months, and among other duties, helped train the Afghan National Army in security.

Soon after his service ended in 2014, Jonathan enrolled at Pace University where he spoke weekly to a social worker for his PTSD.

“I was able to talk to him about how I felt. It was easier for me. That’s what helped me in the transition, to going to those meetings and being with veterans at school,” he said.

School is something Jonathan does not take for granted. He’s pursuing a bachelor’s degree in information technology, with a concentration in cybersecurity. His education is 100 percent covered by the post 9/11 G.I. Bill.

“My education, being financed by the government, allowed me to get opportunities I wouldn’t have gotten before I was in the military,” he said.
