University to evacuate Cairo abroad students

first_img Notre Dame’s decision to evacuate the students was in response to a U.S. State Department recommendation. Twelve Notre Dame students are participating in Notre Dame’s study abroad program at the American University of Cairo (AUC). The students in Cairo had no access to Internet or mobile phone connections last week, but Notre Dame’s Office of International Studies (OIS) received a Friday voicemail when AUC officials allowed students to make one-minute phone calls from landlines. The students arrived in Cairo Jan. 20 to begin their semester of study at AUC. U.S. government-arranged transportation from Cairo to safe haven locations in Europe is scheduled to begin Monday, according to a notice from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo. “OIS has received a voicemail from one of our Cairo students, calling on behalf of all of them,” the note stated. “They are all safe at the student residence in Zamalek. … They are obeying the curfew and, as instructed, have not ventured from their residences nor in anyway been involved in any of the protests. There are AUC officials in residence at Zamalek that are there to act as advisors to our students.” In a Jan. 29 emergency website announcement, AUC stated that, “due to the circumstances in Egypt,” classes and activities were cancelled until at least Feb. 2.center_img “Notre Dame is collaborating with AUC and U.S. officials to have the students transported with other American citizens as soon as possible on government-arranged transport to safe havens in Europe, from where they will be assisted by Notre Dame to locations in which they will be able to safely continue their studies,” the press release stated. In a website update directed toward parents of students in Cairo, OIS said the students were safe in their residences. Notre Dame students also placed short phone calls Sunday when they learned they were leaving Cairo. The University will evacuate Notre Dame students from Cairo due to ongoing protests and violence in Egypt, according to a University press release.last_img read more

From rice fields in western Africa to sheep pastures in Uruguay, students in the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental sciences travel the world each year to learn how to build a more food-secure future. This international engagement not only builds their understanding of global agricultural systems, but also helps students make connections between their classroom education and the global goal of doubling the world’s food supply by 2050. Sam Pardue, dean and director of CAES, challenged the students gathered at the college’s International Agriculture Reception to finish the job started during the green revolution in the 1960s and 1970s. Because of improved crop varieties and planting practices, farmers reduced the percentage the of the world population who suffer hunger from one-third of the human population to one-tenth of the population between the 1970s and the 1990s. “I’m excited by many of you in this room who will be a part of the next green revolution,” Pardue said. “And one day, just like we’ve eradicated diseases, we will be able to eradicate hunger from this world. It’s a mission that we all can embrace, and I am looking forward to seeing what the next 20 or 30 years of your efforts will bring.” CAES faculty, students and administrators gathered Tuesday to celebrate the college’s international mission and accomplishments at the sixth annual International Agriculture Day reception. Keynote speaker Ann M. Steensland, deputy director of the Global Harvest Initiative, told students and faculty that successful solutions for feeding the world’s hungry have to be created in concert with the farmers and community members on the ground in developing countries and in our own backyard. “As we’re looking at meeting the challenge of 2050, we need to think locally as well as globally,” Steensland said. “We need think creatively. We need to be flexible and we need to listen as much as we talk. And if we do that, and we really work with and respect the people we’re working with in the field, I think we have a real chance to meet this challenge and to bring a lot of people along with us.” The students and faculty members gathered at Tuesday’s event exemplified this idea of global citizenship and cooperation. The CAES Office of Global Programs, which hosts the International Agriculture Day Reception each spring, honored some of the college’s most globally minded students with travel grants, scholarships and awards. Students who will graduate this year with UGA’s International Agriculture Certificate were also recognized.Students honored Tuesday include:International Agriculture Certificate International Agriculture Certificate students expand their global perspective by participating in internationally focused coursework, language study and a hands-on international internship aligned with their academic and career goals.Brock Boleman, master’s degree in agricultural and applied economicsErin Burnett, bachelor’s degree in agricultural communicationChris Reynolds, bachelor’s degree in agribusinessEmily Urban, master’s degree in agricultural and environmental educationRachel Wigington, master’s degree in agricultural leadershipJessica Wolf, bachelor’s degree in geography William A.

Sections rally to support disabled lawyer

first_imgSections rally to support disabled lawyer February 15, 2006 Regular News Sections rally to support disabled lawyercenter_img ‘I just want to work and pursue a career, and I will not stop until that is a reality’ Jan Pudlow Senior Editor The plight of Aaron Bates, the young lawyer with muscular dystrophy featured on the front page of the January 15 News, caught the attention of many attending the Bar Midyear Meeting in Miami who want to help.His dilemma: The personal care attendant — to help him dress and bathe and get in and out of his motorized wheelchair — was provided by the state Division of Vocational Rehabilitation throughout his education, but stopped once he landed a job as an assistant state attorney in the Fifth Judicial Circuit. Therefore, even though 25-year-old Bates wants to work, he could not accept the $40,000-a-year job and had to return home to live with his parents in Alabama.“This strikes me as absurd,” Tony Musto, a Hallandale attorney, told executive council members of both the Criminal Law Section and Government Lawyer Section. “The Bar should not stand by and let this happen.”Florida Supreme Court Clerk Thomas Hall, chair of the Appellate Law Section, added his support.“I definitely agree with Tony that the Government Lawyer Section should take the lead. Here is a guy who wants to be a public servant and he is prohibited from doing so.”Musto wants to raise money to help Bates hire the personal care attendant, estimated at $35,000 a year, while efforts are made to change legislation to make him eligible for benefits, so that he can go to work.David Rothman, a member of the Bar Board of Governors, called the idea “a great thing to do,” and offered to help bring the issue before the board at its February 17 meeting in Tallahassee.Matt Dietz, who specializes in disability law, also put out a plea in an e-mail to members of Bar leadership and fellow Equal Opportunities Law Section members, saying, “This is wrong on so many different levels, and we need to do something about it. On a human level, we, as a society, made a promise to this young man that if he did the work and received the education, and got the job, he would be able to live like everybody else, and not be condemned to institutionalization and poverty solely because of his disability.”On an economic level, Dietz said, it is much less expensive to provide a personal care attendant “than to pay all the benefits of a nonproductive, unemployed person with significant health needs. In the long run, he will eventually make enough money to become self-sufficient, and he will contribute to society as a whole.”At both the Criminal Law and Government Lawyer executive council meetings, most lawyers were sympathetic, but several expressed concern about setting a precedent and wondered how they would help the next similarly situated individual.“I think it’s a real injustice,” said George Tragos of the Criminal Law Section Executive Council. “But I’m opposed to us becoming a social services agency.”He said he supported any help that could be given to Bates’ cause, “short of giving money,” and members voted to send a letter to the Board of Governors.In the meantime, Bar staff members are monitoring legislative efforts in both the House and Senate Health Care committees to amend F.S. §413.402 to allow individuals such as Bates to qualify for personal care attendants, a benefit currently available only for those who suffered a spinal cord injury.Bates, who has been very involved with legislative staff on drafting a change in the law, said he is grateful for the Bar’s efforts to help.“Being attorneys, people naturally assume that if anyone’s rights are being dutifully protected, an attorney’s rights are. In my case, however, you see that certain social barriers trump even the brightest minds or renowned professions,” Bates said.“It is important that the legal system, and society in general, reward hard work and perseverance. I was always led to believe that it did, but have found that it does not necessarily pay dividends immediately. I am hopeful that with the influence and reputation of The Florida Bar, and help of fellow attorneys, the illogical barrier I ran into can be removed. Whatever the solution may be, I just want to work and pursue a career, and I will not stop until that is a reality.”last_img read more
