Sustainability Education at UBC: Towards Place and Promise
Sustainability features prominently in The UBC Strategic Plan, and is increasingly cited as a value and objective for diverse activity across the University. It's agreed that educators need to integrate and enhance sustainability in courses, programs and initiatives. But what is 'sustainability education'? What support is available for sustainability educators at UBC? This session will briefly share some of the sustainability education projects presently underway at the University, and hopefully kick off an open discussion on how these efforts can be enhanced and, yes, sustained in the future. Moderated by Yona Sipos, Ph.D. Candidate, Integrated Studies, Land and Food Systems Panelists: Jean Marcus, Ph.D., Associate Director, Sustainability Teaching and Learning Office Farah Shroff, Ph.D., Faculty Member, Department of Family Practice & School of Population and Public Health Naoko Ellis, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Chemical and Biological Engineering Margaret Gardiner, Program Assistant, First Nations Languages Program Matt Zustovic, Undergraduate Team Member, Forestry Sustainability Group

Maybe, the most inspirational video ever . . .
http://www.facebook.com/JohnVonAchen - In December 2009, I was privileged to speak before a large group of business professionals and entrepreneurs in Russia. My topic was, how to Create Your Best Year Ever in 2010. On that day, I ended by sharing a video my team and I had created to summarize the highlights of what I had taught. The audience was so moved by the video, many asked if they could have a copy. Today . . . I am sharing the video with you. My hope is this video encourages you as well. Share this video with anyone you know who needs a bit of encouragement and inspiration in these challenging times! It might make a difference in their day . . . and maybe, just maybe . . . their whole year!

Crucial to this plan are test-based accountability systems, which focus attention on struggling learners. At the same time, the traditional oversight by superintendents is gone. Does this strategy build better schools? What has been gained, lost, and learned? The Center for New York City Affairs will release an analysis of these influential and controversial reforms at the conference, which they are sponsoring.

Tibetan Students Protest Language Reforms
Tibetan students in Western China have been protesting the Chinese regime's unconfirmed plans to use Chinese language exclusively to teach classes in both elementary and high schools. The protest happened in the Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Huangnan, in Qinghai province, on Tuesday. London-based rights group "Free Tibet" says six thousand students, between 14 and 20 years old, took part. The students marched in the morning, eventually gathering outside the headquarters of local authorities in Huangnan. The Governor and Director General of the education department in the autonomous region reportedly assured students on Tuesday there would be no change to the current language policy while they are in office. Yet, they also warned students that if protests continue, they would expel the ringleaders from their schools. These assurances didn't mean much to one former middle school teacher in Tongren, who told Free Tibet, quote, "The Chinese are enforcing reforms which remind me of the Cultural Revolution. This reform is not only a threat to our mother-tongue, but is in direct violation of the Chinese constitution which is meant to protect our rights. For Tibetans the Chinese constitution is meaningless." High school education already exclusively uses Chinese, as do university entrance exams. Rights groups say this puts Tibetans at a disadvantage and leads to Tibetan poverty.

Grantham University Celebrates 60 Year Anniversary
http://www.grantham.edu/?cid=1720 - Learn more about Grantham's 100% Online Degree Programs On March 16th, Grantham University held the first of several celebrations honoring the University's upcoming 60th anniversary of providing a high quality online education that is accessible and affordable. The University, which was founded on January 2, 1951, plans to host similar events throughout the year to honor its students and alumni in their local communities. The theme of the 60th Year Celebrations is Serving Those Who Serve 60 Years of Excellence. Be a Part of It. On the evening of March 16th many area students and alumni gathered along with members of the Grantham University Board of Governors, staff, and members of the military voluntary education community at the Key Bridge Marriott Hotel in Rosslyn, Virginia. Several students received academic awards, and recent graduate, Mr. Charles Diamond, was presented with his Bachelor of Science degree in General Studies. Mr. Diamond graduated Cum Laude. Dr. Jeffrey Cropsey, vice president for strategic initiatives at Grantham University, presented Mr. Diamonds diploma with these words: Charles is a true American patriot who with the support of his family and the staff at Grantham University relentlessly pursued his degree so he could move forward in his career and continued service to our nation. Mr. Diamond served in the United States Marine Corps until 2006, when he obtained a position as Senior Security Program Officer for the State Department. His duties sent him to the US Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq on numerous occasions. While in the Marine Corps, he received several medals and commendations and has served tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Currently, Mr. Diamond is pursuing a position as a Federal Agent with the State Departments Diplomatic Security Service, a position which requires a bachelors degree. So, he turned to Grantham University and began pursuing his degree in General Studies. During his time with Grantham, Mr. Diamond formed a special bond with his Student Progress Representative (SPR), Laura Garcia. Ms. Garcia began working with Mr. Diamond at the start of his first course and all the way through to his graduation. She motivated and encouraged him to reach his educational goals. Mr. Diamond commented, Laura is a person of character and was key to my having stayed on course to earn my degree. Ms. Garcia was similarly impressed with Mr. Diamond's dedication. His determination to achieve his educational goals and his resolve to receive high scores in his courses were motivating to me in my role as an SPR, she said. Mr. Diamond's story is a wonderful example of a University and its staff working together to help students achieve their dreams of earning an undergraduate or graduate degree. Mr. Diamond plans to pursue his masters degree while his wife, Zanelle, completes her Bachelor of Science degree in Multidisciplinary Studies at Grantham University. The University was founded by Donald Grantham, a veteran of World War II, nearly 60 years ago to help prepare veterans for new jobs in the electronics industry and a better future upon their return to civilian life. Over the years, the University transitioned from a brick and mortar school with several campuses across the United States to a 100%online university located in Kansas City, MO. The University's mission is to provide students with an accessible, affordable, professionally relevant education. Sixty years after its founding, serving those who serve remains at the heart of the University. A significant portion of its student body is made up of active duty military, prior service, and military spouses. We believe that every service member, every veteran, and every member of a military family should have the opportunity to pursue a college education, said Dr. Cropsey. To ensure that our programs are accessible and affordable to these deserving students, we have developed numerous scholarship programs, an interactive online learning environment and a solid student support structure to ensure that this belief becomes a reality for those who sacrifice for us all. Grantham University is proud to be "Serving Those Who Serve®" Request Info - http://www.grantham.edu/contact?cid=1720 Degree Programs - http://www.grantham.edu/online-degree?cid=1720 Apply Now - http://www.grantham.edu/apply-now?cid=1720

Frank Calls Out Defense Spending, NATO
Ben Mankiewicz and Ana Kasparian break down comments by Democratic Congressman Barney Frank on wasteful war defense spending and NATO.

Read Ana's blog and subscribe at: http://www.examiner.com/x-5445-Politics-in-Education-Examiner TYT Network (new WTF?! channel): http://www.youtube.com/user/whattheflickshow Check Out TYT Interviews http://www.youtube.com http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/12/27/barney-frank-nato_n_801515.html Excerpt: WASHINGTON -- Public officials on both sides of the aisle are increasingly looking toward the defense budget as a possible avenue for cutting spending and reducing the deficit, even though the Obama administration has been reluctant to do so. But one of the leading budget experts in the House of Representatives is saying that progressives need to start putting more pressure on the issue and should specifically think about cutting spending on NATO. "These kind of restrictions on domestic spending with unlimited spending for the war -- and you always have to talk about both -- is a great mistake," Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) told The Huffington Post last week. "And the liberal community's got to focus more on Afghanistan, Iraq, NATO. NATO is a great drain on our treasury and serves no strategic purpose." Lawrence J. Korb, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress who has argued that the defense budget can be cut without harming military readiness, said Frank's idea has merit. "Barney Frank has a good point," said Korb. "We ought to rethink the whole idea of NATO." The FY 2010 defense budget was $533.8 billion -- excluding the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. If you add those in, it comes out to a whopping $663.8 billion, which is "more than the combined defense expenditures of the next 17 countries." Korb estimates that approximately 20 percent of the baseline defense budget is NATO-related, resulting in about $100 billion in spending each year. (Pinpointing the exact number is tricky, however, since many of the assets the United States provides NATO are used for other purposes.) Interestingly, that amount is the same figure that House Republicans have pledged to cut from the federal budget next year, representing approximately one-fifth of the domestic discretionary budget. The GOP instead plans to slash spending for education, firefighters and cancer research. As Nicholas Kristof recently wrote in The New York Times, "The U.S. will spend more on the war in Afghanistan this year, adjusting for inflation, than we spent on the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican-American War, the Civil War and the Spanish-American War combined." Cutting the defense budget is not without precedent; Republican presidents including Dwight Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush all did so. Although Defense Secretary Robert Gates has consistently called for more funding for the State Department and foreign aid, in the FY 2011 budget the Obama administration is still spending 12 times more on the Defense Department than on State and foreign assistance.

Climate Change - an Australian framework for local action - Part 7
Rosie Rowe on strategic framework for climate change planning and action in a rural landscape Abstract: This seminar will present a Strategic Framework developed by a primary health partnership in rural Australia to guide local climate change planning and action. Applying the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion, it identifies actions to address the broad social and health impacts of climate change. The methodology can be applied to other areas to identify which communities, population groups or regions may be more impacted than others and hence where assistance should be directed. The seminar presents a case study into the engagement of local communities on climate adaptation, including lessons learnt. This is relevant for engaging change on other issues in conservative rural communities. Bio: Rosie Rowe is the Director, Community Services and Allied Health at Western District Health Service, Australia. As a Handbury Research Fellow, her particular interest is in developing innovative approaches to addressing the health outcomes of climate change for rural communities from prevention to new models of service provision. Rosie has held senior positions in both the public and private sectors, including the Department of Land and Water Conservation. She has a Bachelor of Natural Resources, Masters of Business Administration and is a Research Fellow with the University of Melbourne.
