How To Write An Application For Florida Colleges

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter By Judy NelsonGetting into an American college can be challenging, so preparing yourself for what’s to come is crucial. Your application is the most important part of the process. Before deciding where you want to study and what you want to do, you must get access to this application essential package.For example – did you know that for many colleges, your personal essay makes up more than 50% of your final entry grade? Did you know that applying through Common App ensures you higher chances of being accepted into your first school of choice?Here are some of your most important tips about applying to colleges in Florida.Choosing your desired method of applyingUniversities might offer different methods of applying to their schools. Here are three of the most important and widely used:Institutional applications – that means, you are applying to your college of choice individually. You will most likely be downloading the application form and completing it thoroughly. Each university has different requirements, so you must pay careful attention to each detail.The Common App – this is a platform covering over 700 colleges in the U.S. and throughout Florida. You can find almost any university here and prepare one application for all. On top of your personal essay and standardized application, you’ll need to prepare an extra essay prompt (or more) for each one of the schools you’re applying for. Schools on Common App are sometimes more selective and might require recommendation letters.The Coalition App – this is another platform similar to Common App which includes 113 schools from the U.S., including Florida. The students get five essay prompts to choose from and a deadline as to when to complete them. You should also include your extra-curricular activities (and all other specific details) in the personal information section of the platform.Writing your college essayYour personal essay is a crucial part of your application, so make sure that you’re taking enough time to prepare what’s necessary. If you’re about to search I just need college admission essay help on google, that could work, but you could also prepare ahead of time to avoid the rush. In any case, there are many student paper writers who can assist you with your task and turn your application into a winner. In case you prefer to work on it by yourself, here are some of the most important steps to consider.Read the application instructions, don’t rush into the assignmentsStart with a catchy introductionBe yourself, don’t try to become someone elseAvoid using any clichéInclude examples that support your ideasMap out a structured essay planAsk someone to review your workPreparing to submit your applicationBuilding an accurate resumeNext, you must create a resume that stands out. If you don’t have a good resume, chances are you won’t be taken too seriously. Make sure to include everything in your resume, such as your phone number, e-mail address, etc. Your community service involvement and awards are also important, as they’ll show the school how involved you’ve been in the local community (thus increasing your chances of being accepted).Storing your informationBelieve it or not, storing your access codes into one big folder is a must-do. You could create a general folder named ‘Universities’ and create smaller folders inside it for each college in Florida separately. Under each individual university folder, you could create sub-folders again, to keep track of each college’s: admission decision, financial aid offer, scholarship offer, housing offer, etc.Also, if you’ve decided to apply to more than one college, make sure you write down all of your access codes into one Word document. It would be a shame to lose access to your most recent account and have no means of getting the access codes back. Also, try not to store all of this information on your computer.Tracking your applications Since you will be applying to multiple colleges in Florida, you will lose track of all of your applications if you are not organized. So, make sure that you track your progress, and know which ones you’ve already applied to. Include each university’s requirements in their folder of interest, including ACT/SAT scores, your application status, the documents you’ve already sent, etc.Sending documentsThe next step is sending the actual documents to your schools of interest. This includes your CSS Profile (which should be completed way in advance), ACT/SAT/TOEFL scores, high-school transcripts, and letters of recommendation. Make sure you take enough time to finish each part of the process, as it might take you awhile to gather all the documentation. When it comes to your letter of recommendation, for example, you should request help from your professors long before the deadline. They must have enough time to think about their letter and write it down. You cannot rush them into the process.Respecting deadlines Make sure you respect all of the deadlines. Some universities in Florida might work on a rolling admissions basis, while others might have strict deadlines. In any case, don’t miss any deadline, ensure that you are on top of each of your assignment. Stay productive and work hard to get what you want.Judy Nelson is a student activist and blogger.

Rugby Championship in doubt as Springboks won’t go if not fit enough

first_imgTuesday Jul 28, 2020 Rugby Championship in doubt as Springboks won’t go if not fit enough New Springboks coach Jacques Nienaber has indicated they are doubtful starters for this year’s Rugby Championship, casting a cloud over the SANZAAR tournament.ADVERTISEMENTNienaber, who replaced Rassie Erasmus after last year’s World Cup triumph in Japan, fears his players won’t be physically ready for the four-nations event which is provisionally scheduled to be played entirely in New Zealand from November 7 to December 12.World Rugby confirmed its backing for the new “emergency” international window, pushed back three months because of COVID-19.However, Nienaber noted the vast discrepancy in readiness for his players compared to those in Australasia.While Wallabies and All Blacks players will have had a steady diet of Super Rugby matches to have their players in shape, their Springboks and Argentina counterparts have been starved of high-level competition.The impact of the pandemic in both South Africa and Argentina has left both nations unable to begin domestic competitions.Nienaber wants the South African Currie Cup to have begun by the end of August or would be reluctant to risk the welfare of Springboks on the Test stage.ADVERTISEMENT“We have a responsibility to ensure that the players have received sufficient conditioning so that they can play rugby,” he told Rapport newspaper.“If we can’t play six games, then I don’t think we will go. The player well-being risk would just be too great.”Nienaber wants to take a large 45-man squad to New Zealand given the quarantine requirements if additional players need to be flown in later.NZ Rugby chief executive Mark Robinson has said he would investigate the possibility of players from South Africa and Argentina arriving several weeks out from the Rugby Championship and playing warm-up matches on Kiwi soil.ADVERTISEMENTNienaber said the commitment of his players to spend at least two months away from family in coronavirus-hit South Africa would be a difficult call for each of them to make.“That raises all sorts of extra anxieties, never mind the massively challenging rugby aspects involved,” he said.“You can only imagine the predicament facing guys if a close relative, for example, is suddenly badly affected by the virus back home. Can you fly back? Do you fly back?“What happens if you then hope to return to the tournament, meaning fresh quarantining requirements?”RELATED VIEWING: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

WATCH: Perfect take-off for Shannon model aircraft exhibition

first_imgDonal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener A life-long fascination with aviation achieved a perfect take-off last Tuesday with the official opening of a permanent public exhibition of the world’s largest private diecast model aircraft exhibition at Shannon Airport.The entire collection comprises 2,300 diecast model aircraft, with more than1,500 of them on display and the rest to be rotated over time.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Located in the airport departures lounge, the collection was assembled over the past five decades by retired Limerick city man Michael Kelly (67), whose love affair with aircraft started as a boy at Shannon in the late 1950s.The unique collection includes model aircraft of 40 years old and more, with all 1:200 in scale and replicas of aircraft dating back to the 1940s.“Today is a dream come true. I fell in love with aircraft in the late 1950s, the first minute my Dad brought me to Shannon Airport to spot aircraft as they landed and took off. So, to have spent a lifetime assembling this collection and bring it back to where it all started is more than I could have hoped for,” he said.The collection, which Mr Kelly began assembling from his mid-teens, outgrew his old farmhouse home at Farranshone, Limerick but the retired plumber/fitter has decided to bring it all back ‘home’ to Shannon. The majority of it is on display, with other aircraft held back and set to be rotated as time goes on.Among the better-known are a range of Concordes that perfected take-off ability at Shannon; the Sunderland aircraft owned by Al Capone from the 1930s and the McDonnell Douglas DC6 – the oldest aircraft replicated in the collection. Also included are the Antonov 225, the world’s largest aircraft to fly commercially, which has also transited Shannon; the first Ryanair Boeing 737 aircraft and the full Aer Lingus collection.Launching the permanent exhibition, Shannon Group chairperson Rose Hynes: “Shannon is a place of homecomings and this is certainly among the best of them. This permanent display is a superb addition to the airport, a gift to passengers. Making our passengers happy, making their time in our airport go by easily, letting them know we care, is something we work hard at. This exhibition is an example of that.”Airport Director of Operations Niall Maloney said that Michael Kelly, through his determination and love of aviation, had managed to amass the largest collection of model aircraft in the world.“It’s in keeping with an airport that has probably broken more frontiers than any other of its size in the world,” he added.

New storm forming in West, to cross country with more snow, flooding rain

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — As one storm leaves, a new one will cross the country through the weekend.The departing storm, which wreaked havoc on the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast on Wednesday, brought up to 6 to 11 inches of snow for the Plains into the Great Lakes. Just a few inches fell from Washington, D.C., north to Boston, but it snarled travel throughout the day.This latest snowstorm pushed many cities in the Upper Midwest into the snowiest February on record, from Minnesota to Wisconsin. In the South, more than 4 inches of rain produced flash flooding from Arkansans to Tennessee and down to Alabama and Georgia.As the new storm gathers strength in the Southwest, 11 states are under snow and wind alerts.The storm already brought some rare snow to Las Vegas overnight. Snow also fell in the mountains outside of Los Angeles and San Diego, slowing down traffic.By Friday, the storm will move east, joining with moisture in the Gulf of Mexico and spreading snow and heavy rain from the Gulf Coast into the Upper Midwest once again.The western storm becomes a powerful low pressure in the Plains by Saturday with possible severe weather for the mid-Mississippi Valley, Ohio Valley and Tennessee Valley. Tornadoes, hail and damaging winds are all possible. Very heavy rain is also likely in the South with flooding possible again in Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia.To the north, heavy snow will fall once again from Kansas to Iowa and into Wisconsin.By Sunday, the storm system moves into the Northeast and the entire East Coast, with heavy rain from Atlanta to New York City and Boston. Some snow and ice is possible in New England.One to two feet of snow is possible in the Arizona and Colorado mountains, with up to a foot in the Midwest and the Great Lakes. Heavy rain will fall in the South, on top of all the rain that fell this week, making flooding likely. There could be 4 to 5 inches of rain from Louisiana to Kentucky. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Increased mobility heralds the rise of elance workers

first_img Comments are closed. Increased mobility heralds the rise of elance workersOn 10 Apr 2001 in Personnel Today Fundamental shifts in our socialand economic landscape are producing seismic changes in the world of work. The facts speak forthemselves – by 2006, according to the Henley Centre for Forecasting, just lessthan a third of the population will be working from home, and if we include themobile worker, the figures are greater still. Already, 46 per cent of businesspeople have an office or work area in their home.These new ways ofworking are producing a breed of Internet-enabled mobile worker – the elancer.The typical elancer works from home and is most likely to be self-employed. Buttomorrow’s elancer may be a mobile worker and, increasingly, is likely to be avirtual employee. Interestingly, HR professionals – being knowledge workers –have this way of working open to them.As elancing moves intothe mainstream, it poses new managerial challenges. Businesses such as Orangehave understood the implications of the emerging landscape, running marketingcampaigns on the virtues of “wirefree working”, with advertstraplines focusing on teamwork even when colleagues are miles apart. Technology ispresented as the great liberator, enabling people to work flexibly wherever,whenever and however they choose.But organisations needto be mindful that they do not rely on the technology fix to solve what isessentially a people problem. Elancentric’s researchsuggests that “virtual employees” can often find the elancingexperience isolating unless attempts are made to bring them into the lifebloodof the organisation. It is too easy for the elancer to view their relationshipwith their organisation as “virtual” in practice as well as in name. For managers, regularcontact is a must. E-mail is a vital tool, and intranets are essential forcommunity-building as they facilitate the free exchange of ideas, rendering theboundaries between employee, freelancers and consultants less clear cut.Technology is alsogreat for communication, but it can never replace face-to-face contact. Managers must bewareof using technology to avoid problems. If there is tension building, e-mail canmask or bring conflict to the surface in a damaging way. It can be aggressive –whether passive or confrontational. So it is vital that colleagues pick up thephone. Remote management canbe even more challenging when the manager is an elancer or virtual worker. Butthere are advantages. Managers, like the elancers they manage, can reallyempathise with their daily challenges and thus handle the team moreeffectively. Organisations alsoneed to find ways of harnessing the creativity and involvement of freelancersand consultants. They need to experiment with ways of bringing them into theorganisational ethos, and giving them a stake. Employment agency Springintroduced a share options scheme for freelancers.At the moment, theelancer’s experience is marginal to the organisational culture. In tomorrow’sorganisation they will be fully integrated into business culture. Until then, HRmanagers might like to pioneer the trend and embrace the elance way of working.The experience will certainly give them a quick fix on the challenges as wellas the advantages, and render them better equipped to train and coach theirpeers into harnessing the human potential of their elancers as effectively asthe head office team.Helen Wilkinson isfounder of www.elancentric.com abusiness community for elancers and elance-oriented organisations Related posts:No related photos.

Matthew Bonner, Constitution’s 72nd commanding officer. “It is such a great city that has welcomed us before, and much like Constitution, played a key role in the war. It is a fantastic opportunity to share the ship’s rich history and its Sailors with the people of the city as well as the other ships that are supporting the event.”Sailors will also share their experiences while serving aboard Constitution with Navy Week spectators during events at Gettysburg Pier and at an air show at New Orleans Lakefront Airport.“Being able to tell the tale of how our Navy began, along with our own ship’s history is such an honor,” said Boatswain’s Mate 1st Class (SW) Conrad Hunt, Constitution’s Navy Week leading petty officer. “Especially since New Orleans Navy Week is the official kick-off of the War of 1812 bicentennial commemoration, a war in which Constitution performed victoriously.”Additionally, Constitution Sailors will be participating in a Caps for Kids event in which Navy ballcaps will be given to pediatric cancer patients. Sailors will also serve as the color guard detail at a New Orleans Zephyrs AAA baseball game.This is the second of eight Navy Weeks Constitution Sailors are scheduled to participate in throughout 2012, celebrating the bicentennial of the War of 1812. They performed similar activities during Phoenix Navy Week, March 26-30.The primary purpose of Navy Week is to increase Navy awareness by presenting the Navy to Americans who live in cities that normally do not have a significant naval presence. New Orleans Navy Week will showcase the mission, capabilities and achievements of the U.S. Navy and provide residents the opportunity to meet Sailors firsthand.Constitution is the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat and welcomes more than 500,000 visitors per year. She defended the sea lanes against threat from 1797 to 1855, much like the mission of today’s Navy.

Ocean City’s Dockside Kitchen Offers Gourmet Fare With Bayside Views

first_imgExecutive Chef Alex Morris at Dockside Kitchen in Ocean City says the restaurant offers classic gourmet cuisine with a fresh and modern flair. By Maddy VitaleHow about mouthwatering lump crab meat with an avocado spread on toast with a hint of basil, mint and olive oil or a classic eggs benedict with hollandaise sauce and thick chunks of home fries? Maybe you are in the mood for something on the sweeter side? Try an order of giant blueberry pancakes sprinkled with powdered sugar hearty enough to satisfy the biggest morning appetite.These are just a some of the entrees offered at Dockside Kitchen, 228 Bay Ave. in Ocean City. The eatery, overlooking the bay, offers patrons spectacular views while giving their palates plenty to savor with gourmet breakfasts and lunches.The restaurant opened last month and is quickly gaining a following of regular customers.Dockside Kitchen has only been open a month, but is already gaining a following.If you ask Executive Chef Alex Morris, it is easy to know why this gem on the bay is capturing the attention of residents and tourists. “It is gourmet, classic cuisine, but with a modern twist. There are choices for everyone at any age and all different styles of food,” Morris said, explaining what he offers patrons.Customers are treated to a wide selection of delicious breakfast and brunch entrees.There are a few dishes on the menu Morris can’t seem to make fast enough, he noted Thursday morning in between fulfilling orders at the bustling new restaurant.“People love the benedicts, French toast and the avocado toast,” Morris said as he displayed some of Dockside’s signature dishes.When choosing what to offer the customers, Morris said he is constantly looking at what is trending around the country.French toast that looks too pretty to eat is a favorite dish for customers.“There are the classics as old as time, like eggs benedict. Then you see what other establishments are offering in the area,” he noted. “Then you look to places like San Diego and San Francisco. They are usually serving dishes that haven’t reached here yet.”Ocean City residents Barbara Karbach and her friend Joanne Staniec enjoyed the view and their breakfasts.“It is wonderful,” said Karbach of her avocado toast. Staniec opted for a dish with avocado as well, but she ordered the avocado BLT, complete with thick cut bacon, romaine lettuce, tomato and home fries.“I love it,” Staniec said with a smile.Ocean City residents Barbara Karbach and Joanne Staniec enjoy their avocado entrees.Ocean City residents Amie and Michael Vaules brought their children Isabella, 13, and Henry, 10, to try out Dockside Kitchen because they heard it was really good.They each ordered something different. Amie ordered the veggie omelet. Michael chose the breakfast burrito. Isabella had the spinach and tomato omelet and Henry selected the blueberry pancakes with a generous side of scrambled eggs.“The food is delicious,” Amie said.“It is really good,” Isabella added.Michael said he and his family definitely plan to come back to Dockside Kitchen. “It has a great vibe and the food is really good,” he said.The Vaules family of Ocean City say they love Dockside Kitchen.Some gourmet selections to try, include the smoked salmon with sour cream, a bagel, home fries or French fries and the lobster benedict with bacon, butter, braised tomato, a poached egg, hollandaise and home fries. There is also a shrimp and crab omelet for a real bayside dining experience. The lunch menu also offers a multitude of tasty fare from fish tacos to crab cake sandwiches and Greek salad.In addition to the food, is a wide range of beverages and a full service espresso bar. While Dockside Kitchen is open for breakfast and lunch, owner Robert Idell plans on offering dinner by the end of this month. The restaurant also will stay open through November. The menu at Dockside Kitchen offers something for everyone.The reason for opening the restaurant was to offer a special experience for customers. Idell has captured that, according to patrons who said the prices are reasonable, the portions are large, and the views are fantastic.“The opportunity was presented to us from TJ Heist of Ocean City Boathouse Marina. We instantly realized that this was the perfect opportunity to bring a true dining experience to such a unique location,” Idell said. “We really wanted to create a true dining experience for our guests, not just a place to get food. We took into account all the details. We wanted to create a great dining experience from the food, the view and all of the small details.”Morris, who was the executive chef at several high-end eateries, said he left his last position to work alongside Idell because of his vision.Customers enjoy eating gourmet breakfasts and lunches while looking out at the bay.Idell, who also owns other successful Ocean City businesses, Drip N Scoop, 960 Asbury Ave. and Sunrise Café, 1200 Asbury Ave., knows how to offer customers what they want, Morris said.“He has a vision and knows how to implement it,” Morris said. “He is a young guy. He works hard, and he knows his business.”To view Dockside Kitchen’s menu go to http://docksidekitchen.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/dockside_kitchen_ocnj_2018_final.compressed.pdf.Dockside Kitchen is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily.

Photographic memory

first_img“Photography and Chance,” the title of art historian Robin Kelsey’s forthcoming book, also could describe his unusual career trajectory.For example, there was a short stint in the mid-1990s as a lawyer.“I really didn’t enjoy law practice,” Kelsey conceded. “I love argument, I love debate, I was an intensive debater in high school, did some debating in college, and actually ended up coaching the Yale debate team when I was in law school. But I also love writing about pictures, and find that pictures draw me in a way that just working with text doesn’t.”Fast forward to 1999, when Kelsey was a Ph.D. student in Harvard’s Department of History of Art and Architecture. Attending a professional meeting, he couldn’t find a panel on landscape painting, the focus of his own dissertation, so he opted to speak at a session on landscape photography, presenting a talk on 19th century photographer Timothy O’Sullivan.“After I gave the talk, several members of the audience came up, established scholars from the field, and said how happy they were that I was working on this for my dissertation,” Kelsey said. “And of course I wasn’t working on this for my dissertation. But I thought afterward about the fact that when I did give talks on my dissertation, nobody came up and said the same thing. So I took this as a hint from the universe that I had perhaps stumbled upon a more promising topic than what I had been working on.”In short order, Kelsey shifted gears, producing a dissertation on O’Sullivan’s photographic survey of the American West following the Civil War. A year later, weighing Harvard’s offer of a junior faculty position as a historian of photography against offers from elsewhere in American art more generally, he again felt that the stars were aligning to nudge him toward photography.“So I leapt into this professional formation of myself as a photo historian, which was a steep learning curve since I had never done any graduate course work that was directed toward history of photography,” he said.Kelsey’s reinvention reached its denouement last year when he received tenure, becoming the Shirley Carter Burden Professor of Photography. He doesn’t regret the long and winding road to where he is today.“I feel very lucky to have been able to experience that formation,” he said. “I had the post-1960s view that finding one’s calling could be a very long process. I think it would be very hard now to do what I did. Young people these days feel much more urgency to get their lives sorted out.”In retrospect, a few threads in Kelsey’s childhood might have foreshadowed his ultimate destination. Both his mother and stepfather were anthropologists, at Hamline University and the University of Minnesota, respectively. Cameras were indispensable in documenting their fieldwork on Indian reservations and in Mexican villages, often with some of their six children in tow.“My grandfather was a very serious amateur photographer, with a darkroom,” Kelsey said. “I spent time in there, and was fascinated by the equipment and the process.”A product of public schools in Minneapolis, Kelsey thinks his middle-American upbringing also fed his interest in photography.“I think there’s something about growing up in the Midwest that gave me a populist angle on culture,” he said. “And so, for me, while I love all areas of art history, I think there is a special fit for me with photography, with its special democratic qualities.”Photography’s democratic tendencies, which Kelsey dates to the days of the daguerreotype, have only intensified with the advent of ever-more-accessible technologies.“When photography was invented, it was heralded as this great new democratic way of producing pictures,” he said, “but actually there have been subsequent revolutions that have democratized it even more radically, the ‘Kodak Moment’ being one, and our own digital moment being another.”Despite these advances, Kelsey himself has a conflicted relationship with the practice of photography. He admits to suffering from what might be called “photographer’s block.”“I feel burdened by knowing all that has been done, the brilliant things that have been done,” he said. “I am committed to becoming more serious about practice, but it will mean negotiating that past.”last_img read more
