“Consider Israeli Advanced Degree”

first_imgLiberian Student Prince M. Korvah (3rd from right) with fellow students in Tel Aviv, IsraelSays Liberian studying in Israel to colleagues back homePrince M. Korvah, a Liberia student in Israel, is challenging other Liberian students desirous of pursuing advance studies abroad to begin considering the State of Israel.Korvah, a former president of the Federation of Liberian Youth (FLY), an umbrella organization to all youth and student groupings in Liberia, is currently pursuing his International Master’s in Security and Diplomacy at the Tel Aviv University (TAU), the largest academic institution in Israel.In a dispatch from that country, he has vouched for the quality of the educational standards at TAU, an institution which he says comprises nine faculties, 106 departments and 90 research institutes, and is ranked as one of the top institutions of higher learning education the world over, with its International Office directed by Ms. Maureen Meyer.According to Korvah, his academic program brings together a faculty of top scholars and leading practitioners from the Israeli Armed Forces, Security Services and its Foreign Service, now headed by Prof. Dr. Azar Gat; a renowned academician and author.He said out that the program extends far beyond the traditional classroom and is structured to have students engaged with high-ranking diplomats and other decision-makers in the weekly Ambassador Forum, building practical understanding on field visits to the Israeli borders and key security sites.In describing his recent internship as an Intelligence Analyst with MAX Security Incorporated, one of Israel’s leading security companies, Korvah shared his experiences, “this is the best place to study.”It has the special opportunity of getting to live, know and appreciate the valued quest for peace, goodwill of the Great Jewish Nation, all beyond the media perspective, as depicted by a blurred picture, he noted.Prince a former Liberian youth leader has expressed the hope that having more young Liberians study in Israel will provide opportunities of exposure to ”best practices” in the areas of water, agriculture, technology, defense and the hi-tech industries, which are crucial to Liberia’s development.He added, however, that it has its significance for impacting and facilitating a cross generational relationship between the youthful populations of both nations, one which could give a new meaning to the great friendship that has always existed between Liberia and the State of Israel, especially for the trajectory of years ahead.Korvah recalled Liberia has always been a friendly nation to Israel, “depicted by her stand as one of two African nations which voted at the UN in 1947, in favor of the Israeli Independence, the former youth leader noted.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

South Africa’s SKA bid gets new campaign

first_imgThe play African Stars looks at the origins of astronomy in Africa and its influence on people. DST deputy director-general Dr Val Moonsamy said we take many things forgranted that have, in fact, a rich scientificbackground. It is through research that humanity is able to better understandnature and the universe. (Images: Ray Maota) Three of the seven dishes that make up the Kat-7, which is the first phase of MeerKAT. (Image: SKA) MEDIA CONTACTS • SKA South Africa Project Office  +27 11 442 2434 • MeerKAT Engineering Office  +27 21 506 7300 • South African State Theatre  +27 12 392 4000 RELATED ARTICLES • SA’s SKA takes another step forward • SKA on the African horizon • African eyes on the universe • MeerKAT in demand among scientistsRay MaotaFull Moon Fever (FMF) is about to grip South Africa as the Department of Science and Technology (DST) drums up national support for the country’s bid to host the Square Kilometre Array in Southern Africa.When complete, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will be the world’s most powerful radio telescope. It will help answer fundamental questions in astronomy, such as the state of the universe before the first stars formed, and will need a budget of R16-billion (US$2-billion) to build.The DST’s new campaign was launched at the South African State Theatre in Pretoria on 14 November 2011 with a play titled African Stars. Present at the event were the State Theatre’s chairperson Naledi Gallant, and DST deputy director-general Dr Val Moonsamy.Gallant thanked those present for attending the production of African Stars. “It is our intention as the State Theatre to share the rich stories about African astronomy, while also promoting the country’s bid to host SKA.”The play is narrated by a cast member while the others dance and do astrological formations. It seeks to educate people about the origins of astronomy in Africa and how the science has impacted people and history.It also focuses on the San’s well-documented fascination with astronomy, an interest that is still evident today through ancient rock art. The San are a group of southern African Bushmen believed to be one of Africa’s oldest people.It goes on to explain that the building of the Pyramid of Giza in Egypt was built on astronomical alignments, and ends with an account of the benefits of SKA for South Africa and the African continent.Moonsamy said: “Many things that we have come to take for granted have, in fact, a rich scientific background. It is through the aid of research that humanity is able to gain a better understanding of nature and the universe.”The campaign will see FMF events taking place on the Friday or Saturday closest to the full moon of each month; science and technology career exhibitions organised by the Tshwane University of Technology and the University of South Africa; and a nine-province tour of the African Stars production.South Africans are also urged to place messages of support for the bid on the SKA website.The bid to host SKAThe bid to host the SKA project is a two-horse race between South Africa and Australia.The hosts will be announced early in 2012 – meanwhile South Africa is going all out to show that Africa is an emerging global hub for astronomy.Minister of Science and Technology Naledi Pandor said in a statement read by Moonsamy: “South Africa has come of age when it comes to astronomy capacity and capabilities. Our infrastructure and human capital development investments in space science and technology have ensured that our country is counted among the best in the world.”Pandor also said that with the technology involved, the hosting of SKA will propel Africa into the 22nd century and drive economic development across the continent.South Africa shows its potentialIn preparation for SKA, South Africa enacted the Astronomy Geographic Advantage Act of 2008 to provide for the preservation and protection of areas within the country that are uniquely suited for optical and radio astronomy.The country also established the South African National Space Agency in 2010.Pandor said: “The establishment of the space agency is a welcome development that has become an important vehicle for promoting our growing satellite industry and a wide range of innovations in space sciences, earth observation, communications, navigation and engineering.”South Africa has already shown its space prowess with the Southern African Largest Telescope (Salt) and the Karoo Array Telescope, which is the first phase of the MeerKAT.Salt is located near Sutherland, about 370km northeast of Cape Town. It’s the largest single optical telescope in the southern hemisphere and among the five largest in the world.According to its website, Salt can detect the light from faint or distant celestial objects that are a billion times too faint to be seen with the unaided eye.The MeerKAT is the precursor to SKA and is under construction in the Karoo in the Northern Cape. Although the first phase with seven satellite dishes – KAT-7 – is complete and operational, the project will end in 2016 with 64 dishes.The MeerKAT has already proven to be an astronomer’s dream with scientists around the world booking the facility for research time. A total of 43 000 hours has already been allocated to interested radio astronomers.As the SKA precursor, the MeerKAT comprises the same technology. It uses a technique called radio interferometry, which is the production of high-resolution images using a cluster of smaller telescopes rather than one large instrument. The more telescopes in the cluster, the higher the resolution obtained and the better the result.Pandor said: “Hosting SKA will change our economic fortunes and I reckon Africa will host it.”last_img read more

From environmental disaster to Ohio’s first conservation district

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest President Roosevelt toured the Great Plains with some leaders telling him to just abandon the region and let it go, it wasn’t worth the effort. Roosevelt said he could see in the people’s eyes that they intended to stay and survive. Hugh Hammond Bennett and other visionaries scheduled Congressional Hearings in 1935 on the creation of the “U.S. Soil Conservation Service” (SCS).Later as the enabling legislation was approved by Congress, Ohio finally passed legislation to authorize the formation of conservation districts on May 16, 1941. Under the legislation, local communities were asked to create locally led conservation districts. As “Conservation Districts” were created by local citizens, SCS would have the authority to provide technical assistance through that “District” to the landowners, with the District Supervisors overseeing the state and federal programs on behalf of those local land users.Highland County submitted its petition to the newly formed Ohio Soil Conservation Committee on March 25 1942. There were 72 residents who attended that hearing supporting the formation of a District in Highland County. That Petition being accepted, Highland County held the first required public referendum on April 18, 1942. The enabling legislation required 75 voters to pass a petition. Highland County registered 696 total voters and it passed by a 70% affirmative vote, making Highland County the first conservation district in Ohio on April 18, 1942. There were several counties planning to create districts that year, Champaign and Clark counties held their referendums a week after Highland and by the end of the year those three were joined by Butler, Coshocton, Morrow, Noble, Guernsey, Monroe, and Tuscarawas counties, for a total of 10 counties forming Districts in 1942.Later in June of 1942, the first Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor election was held in Highland County with Herbert Williams as chairman. Finally, the first Memorandum of Understanding with the Federal Soil Conservation Service was signed and the work began. By the end of the 1940s, 80 of Ohio’s 88 counties had held their referendums and created soil conservation districts, the last of the 88 forming Districts was Lucas County in 1963.On a state level, the supervisors of Highland, Clark, and Butler counties met in September of 1943 to form an Association to represent the interests of all the supervisors in the state. They met, adopted by-laws and formed “The Ohio Federation of District Supervisors,” now known as “The Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation Districts.” That private organization formed for the purpose of representing all district supervisors and guiding the formation and evolution of soil and water districts in Ohio.The conservation problem here in Ohio and the Corn Belt was not the wind erosion that had so dramatically defined the problems of the “Dust Bowl” across America’s Great Plains. Rather, the equally as damaging issue in the Midwest was water erosion creating gullies so big they could hide a truck or a tractor. Recognizing the problems and the practices that led to the problems took strength, resolve, and most-importantly local knowledge and leadership. The solutions and the processes to adopt and install those solutions were painful to accept and took courage by all involved. As the farmers and conservationist took on these challenges, they literally transformed agriculture across this country, making it a model for the entire world to follow. The genius of the movement was incorporating the locally-led component, which the SWCD continues to bring to the table in 2017.In the 1930s and 1940s, farmers were asked:1. To plow on the contour, to build terraces that slowed down the water runoff,2. To plant over 18,000 miles of windbreaks to help stop the wind,3. To leave crop residue on the surface, and4. To turn the most fragile areas back to their natural state of native prairie grass. Locally, farmers were building erosion control structures and healing the gullies created from poor rotations and bad water management. The country had made a pact with the American farmer: “We will help pay for the application of conservation practices if you will install them, maintain them, and become better stewards of the land.” Everyone should be proud of the fact that all of these programs remain voluntary today.The decade of the 1950s saw significant progress in the conservation movement in Ohio as county commissioners were authorized to appropriate funds to assist “Districts” which would be matched by the state. The 1954 Public Law 83-566, Watershed Protection and Flood Control Act authorized small watershed projects through SCS. In Ohio, the first two pilot projects were the Upper Hocking in Fairfield County and Rocky Fork in Highland County.The ‘50s also saw a growth in district education programs with sponsorship of 4-H camps andThis restored tractor and plow was used by Duane Mootz of Highland County to win contour match at 1957 World Plowing Match in Adams County.

In 1957, Conservation offices and staff in and around Highland County co-sponsored the World Conservation Exposition and Plowing Matches held in Adams County. This was the first such exposition held in the United States and represents the largest such expo ever held in southern Ohio.Conservation agencies worked for decades to complete soil surveys and publish them on a county-by-county basis. Highland County was surveyed from 1963 through 1968, and the document was printed in 1977. These surveys represent perhaps the most intensive study of the land and the soils that has ever been undertaken. Soil surveys provided the basis for all land disturbing activities and fertilization for crop production. Citizens can access all the findings of the soil survey, and use its findings to guide their land-use decisions.Highland County has always been a high priority for intensive land treatment practices and operations. Not so much that its farmers are that much more committed, but rather because geography and geology requires more vigilance. Highland County sits right on the terminal of the great glaciers of North America. Land from Leesburg northward being dominated by row-crop agriculture, having been leveled by the glaciers. South of Hillsboro is unglaciated steep wooded areas with fewer crops and more livestock. That border is an important region for conservation.No-till and minimum tillage became the most dominant method of controlling cropland erosion in the decade of the 1970s. No-till was not an easy step for agriculture to adopt, but as chemicals and equipment refinements have continued, farmers have been able to increase yields and reduce input costs, to the benefit of the land in reduced soil erosion. In 1986 Highland county was awarded the State Conservation Farmer, the top no-till corn yield and the top no-till soybean yield in the state. These were significant accomplishment from a southern Ohio county.Perhaps the single greatest advancement in private lands conservation was the passing of the 1985 Food Security Act (Farm Bill) as it was dominated by conservation provisions and led to many tools still in use today. The Food Security Act designated acre-by-acre which land would be considered highly erodible (HEL) land. The Act created the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), and increased the public commitment to help agriculture protect lands for future generations. Highland County was one of the leaders in the State with more than 25,000 acres of highly erodible land set aside in grasslands or trees through CRP.Statewide, SWCDs are constantly striving to help land users make good decisions with the land they are trusted to use. From education programs, to providing direct technical assistance to land users for conservation practices, the offices continue to help apply practices that prevent cropland erosion, manage our pasture and woodlands, enhance wildlife cover, and improve water quality. Yes, the Soil and Water Conservation District is as relevant today as it was when created 75 years ago.An event was held in April to commemorate Highland Soil and Water Conservation District’s 75th anniversary with a presentation by former Director of the Division of Soil and Water Conservation, Larry Vance.last_img read more
