Currently in the UK there are 20,000 children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. Ten year old Joseph became a Leeds United fan when he was diagnosed with Leukaemia during long hospital stays.
Joseph has endured nine months of intensive chemotherapy and will now have two years of maintenance chemotherapy. In order to realise these magical wishes for children who are fighting life-threatening conditions they rely heavily on donations and the assistance of fundraisers. Without the dedication of people like Shane and Edd, it would not be possible for these children to have a dream come true.
Another child that was helped by this foundation is Chloe, her mum Kirsty told me that a€?Chloe was born with cerebral malformations including Bilateral Schizencephaly, Lissencephaly, Septo-optic Displaysia and Microcephaly as well as having Spina Bifida. When I asked Edd to share why he chose to go to China to raise funds for Make-A-Wish, he told me a€?I like to set myself a challenge every year.
As you can see, this is an extremely worthwhile and life-changing cause, making the most of a childa€™s final years. Appropriate for designers charged with creating new spaces or anyone interested in revamping an existing space, this guide offers novel and non-obvious strategies for changing surroundings specifically to enhance the ways in which teams and individuals communicate, work, play—and innovate.

October 17, 2013 By Laura 8 Comments Thank you Disney for sponsoring this Monsters University Plastic Photo ID Cards Tutorial.
Here are the super easy directions to make your own plastic Monsters University photo ID cards… you’ll be using printable shrink plastic, which is a special paper that you can print on, put in the oven to bake, and watch in amazement as the paper twists and curls and shrinks down to a hard piece of plastic, all in a matter of 2-3 minutes!
If a card needs a little flattening, you can place a spatula down on it quickly to flatten it- so it fast, though, because the cards will cool almost instantly.
My kids are so excited to wear theirs on their backpacks and around their necks- they are well on their way to becoming official scarers now!
Don’t forget that Disney’s Monsters University will be available on Blu-Ray Combo Pack on October 29th, just in time for Halloween! For more Monsters University fun, you can follow along on their Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest pages! For even more great Monsters University crafts, check out what these talented bloggers created! These kind of charge plastic business cards are especially beneficial in the event the colours precious metal or even silver precious metal are utilized within your logo design.

Dr Sewell suggested that a new university-wide entrance exam might be similar to the Sixth Term Examination Paper (Step) in mathematics which candidates who currently apply to take the subject sit just after A-levels in June. Many faculty members and students at the University of Iowa are dissatisfied with the selection of J. Last week, the Board of Regents for Iowa’s higher-education system announced the hiring of J.

When Make-A-Wish FoundationA® UK granted his wish to have a Leeds themed bedroom makeover, he was thrilled! His mobility has been affected; he now relies quite heavily on a wheelchair, and he has been unable to attend school.
When asked why he chose to do this, Shane commented that a€?I thought it was a very unique charity in that rather than trying solely find a cure for a specific condition, they instead give money to making people feel better and have good memories… this can be anyone with any condition rather than just targeting a particular problem. If you could help our two fundraisers by supporting their trek you can donate to Shane here and to Edd here.A  No amount is too small and every little really does help.

During its search, the board, an appointed body, had interviewed notable candidates from the field of higher education, like the president of Oberlin and the provosts of Tulane and Ohio State, but in the end, they landed on Harreld, who isn’t well known in academic circles—or anywhere else, really.
Henry Prize-winning fiction writer, with stories published in Tin House, ZYZZYVA, and elsewhere. A Harry turned to the things he loved most to distract him from treatment a€“ trains, cars and all things fast!
So when he was offered the chance to have his ultimate wish granted, he of course chose to have a fast train experience.
Josepha€™s Dad, John, said: a€?Meeting Sam and having his bedroom decorated with a Leeds theme has really boosted Joseph.
We travelled to London by train, booked into two suites at the Mint Hotel in Westminster; we went by Pink Limo out of London to Surrey to another hotel the next morning to meet with Mr Tumble. Among students and professors, the choice has been about as popular as the selection of the quarterback of the Iowa State Cyclones would have been. Harry was met by Virgin Trainsa€™ Driver Team Manager and was then given the exclusive opportunity to ride in the cab alongside the driver all the way to Crewe. The medication that hea€™s on can make him feel quite down but this has really cheered him up.a€? Sam Byram said a€?It was great to visit Joseph and see his face light up when he showed me his room. They also argue that the AS-level results gives students from poorer backgrounds the confidence to apply to highly selective institutions. Just what form it would take and when it was taken, would have to be carefully though through. The faculty senate issued a vote of no confidence after the announcement of Harreld’s selection.
He got to see just how fast trains can go and even got to sound the horn which, in Harrya€™s words, was a€?epica€?! This is going to be a very hard endurance test for me, I am normally used to sitting down typing, not walking for 6 days!
That afternoon the limo took us back into London to the West End where we had tickets waiting to see Lion King, before travelling home again the next day. A union representing graduate students who work as teaching and research assistants wrote that the regents were going to “destroy public education at the University of Iowa.” Current professors and former students have written scorching articles. Once Harry and his family had arrived at Crewe they were whisked to the Virgin Trains Talent Academy where they got to experience a train simulator and explore a disused train before heading back to London in First Class. The experience gave Chloe and my other two girls (and us) memories that will truly last a lifetime. And the university’s chapter of the American Association of University Professors said that its members join everyone else in “deploring” the hire and the process that led to it. Harrya€™s Mum, Emma, said: a€?I havena€™t got the right words to say how grateful we are for being given the opportunity to spend time together as a family and not have to worry about Harry and hospital appointments. The reactions, strong as they were, didn’t surprise anyone who had been watching the search. Harreld’s inexperience in higher education, along with the regents’ apparent interest in his business background, had rankled people; many were also unimpressed by his performance in a presentation to community members, in which he had come across, at moments, as bristling or dismissive. Harreld’s appointment was also only the latest in a series of tense encounters—in Iowa, and around the country—over two competing visions of how financial considerations should influence the future of higher education.


At the University of Iowa, which has more than thirty thousand students, Sally Mason, the outgoing president, had clashed with the regents over such matters.
In 2012, the board decided not to renew her contract, though she continued working without one until announcing her retirement earlier this year.
A particular source of tension had been the University of Iowa’s funding relative to that of the state’s two other public universities, Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa, which are governed by the same Board of Regents.
The board sees its mandate as being focussed not only on education in general, but on the education of Iowans. Over the past several years, Iowa State and the University of Northern Iowa have admitted increasing proportions of Iowans, while the proportion at the University of Iowa, the state’s flagship, has declined as it has admitted more out-of-state and international students.
In keeping with their Iowan-focussed mission, the regents had recently sought to increase funding for those universities more than for the University of Iowa. This has been unpopular in Iowa City—an additional squeeze during a generally difficult time for public universities, which rely mostly on state funding to cover their expenses. This revenue source’s share as a percentage of university funding dropped twenty-four per cent between 1989 and 2014, and experts in higher-education finance expect the decline to continue, as bigger proportions of state budgets go toward areas like health care and pensions for state employees. In the past, universities made up for declining state support by hiking tuition, the second-biggest source of funds; over all, they more than doubled tuition over that recent twenty-five-year period.
Recently, however, public angst over the expense of college for students and their families has shamed universities into trying to keep tuition down. That means their administrators are faced with a difficult problem: how to keep their budgets balanced as their two main sources of revenue stagnate or shrink. In a phone call, Bruce Rastetter, the president of Iowa’s Board of Regents, described this dilemma as being central to the decision to appoint Harreld. Rastetter’s implication, of course, is that a former business executive might be better equipped than a lifelong university administrator to discover new revenue sources and contain costs.
Harreld does have considerable experience along these lines, if in a totally different setting.
Among the new businesses was a very successful consulting group focussed on the open-source software Linux. In 2005, Alan Deutschman, writing in Fast Company, called Harreld’s track record with those emerging businesses “remarkable.” The question is whether his experience will prove useful in an academic setting. Harreld hasn’t laid out the specific measures he would take to raise revenue or cut costs—he couldn’t be reached to comment for this piece—but, during his application process, he said to reporters and in public forums that he was looking forward to learning about the workings of the university and that he would collaborate with professors and others to come up with decisions that would serve the campus well. I asked Rastetter what kind of revenue-generating and cost-cutting measures he himself favored, and he mentioned investing in online learning—a controversial approach that can let professors reach more students at once but is seen by some critics as less effective than traditional pedagogical methods—and trimming expenses in administrative areas such as finance, human resources, and I.T.
Still, there’s little precedent for installing someone like him at such a large public institution.
In 2011, fewer than two per cent of newly appointed university presidents came from private business, according to a survey by the American Council on Education. When I asked Rastetter to name some similarly non-traditional appointments at other high-profile universities, he referred to the president of Purdue, Mitch Daniels, who is the former governor of Indiana, and the president of the University of Oklahoma, David Boren, who is the former governor of Oklahoma.
Janet Napolitano, the president of the University of California—the largest university system in the nation—also has a background in politics, having previously served as the U.S.
Daniels, Boren, and Napolitano lacked direct experience in higher education when they took their current positions, but, as former governors, all three were required to be deeply knowledgeable about budgeting for higher education, and experienced in the highly political, consensus-based decision-making processes that prevail in both statehouses and university administrations. Perhaps the highest-profile model of someone with a business background running a university is John Hennessy, the president of Stanford.
In 1984, Hennessy co-founded a startup that designed microprocessors, then afterward spent several years at Stanford, eventually becoming the chair of the computer-science department, then the dean of the School of Engineering, then the provost, before taking over the presidency. I attended Stanford as an undergraduate and arrived the same year that Hennessy took over from Gerhard Casper, a career academic who had taught law and political science; I remember some anxiety over whether Hennessy, who was close with Silicon Valley power brokers, would turn the university’s students into a farm team for his friends’ companies, at the expense of a traditional liberal-arts approach to education. Still, Kembrew McLeod, a professor of communication studies at the University of Iowa and a vocal critic of Harreld’s appointment, expressed skepticism that an approach borrowed from business could help address the problems of a budget-challenged campus.
He meant that, at universities, decisions are—or, in any case, should be—made in service of improving students’ education, rather than maximizing revenue or minimizing expenses.
Pure market logic might suggest that the program isn’t valuable, McLeod noted, but, of course, the program has cultural value that isn’t quantifiable. One alternative, he said, might be “for upper administrators to take a long, hard look at the mirror and look at the salaries that are paid to these upper administrators.” Harreld, he pointed out, will make five hundred and ninety thousand dollars a year.
