A-Levels not enough, say City bosses

first_img A-Levels not enough, say City bosses whatsapp KCS-content Share BUSINESS leaders have called for more young people to study for practical qualifications as well as traditional A-Levels to stand out in the increasingly competitive fight for jobs. Around 170,000 applicants are expected to miss out on a university place this year, despite a record 97.6 per cent of students passing their A-Levels yesterday. Director general at the Institute of Directors, Miles Templeman, reassured those who have missed out on university, and called on the government to extend its Graduate Talent Pool internship scheme to include school-leavers to cope with the shortfall in university places. “University is not the be all and end all. Not all courses will confer the financial rewards so frequently cited, and employers place just as much emphasis on wider employability skills as they do on academic qualifications,” he said. However, students this year have shunned new courses intended to teach practical skills. Fewer than 600 young people passed diploma courses yesterday, introduced in September 2008 as the Labour government attempted to refocus on hands-on training. “The diploma seems to have lost its way with a tiny number of entries and gender stereotyping evidence in the selection of courses,” said Christine Blower, general secretary of the National Union of Teachers.City firms such as Fidelity and PwC have taken on more school-leavers this year to help bridge the gap between school leavers and graduate-level jobs. The CBI also put an emphasis on work experience for young people, suggesting apprenticeships or part-time study for those who have fallen short of full-time degrees. “Although students may not have planned a gap year, the CBI is urging those that have missed a place at university this year to use the time to increase their employability,” said CBI director of education and skills Susan Anderson. Birkbeck College, which offers evening courses, saw a 22 per cent rise in 18 to 24 year olds applying for part-time degrees this year, while vocational body City &?Guilds saw 20 per cent more applications.A GRADUATE’S VIEWSIMON WARNERGRADUATING with an English Literature degree from a red-brick university sounds prestigious. But since leaving Leeds this summer, I get the feeling that you need more than an undergraduate degree to get a good job. Far from seeming indispensable, my degree feels like a pre-requisite, a necessity, and certainly not enough on its own.Yes, some companies have started offering rewarding jobs for people with only A-Levels, but this won’t take the pressure off most of us. The very best 18-year-olds will inevitably benefit from the schemes, leapfrogging those who go to university, but there will still be thousands competing for university spots and dwindling jobs. And at the other end of the spectrum, a growing number of employers demand postgraduate study or even more. I am getting a lot of encouragement to do further education, for example a master’s in something practical that could help my chosen trade (I’d like to be a journalist). I couldn’t do a masters without a degree. Without a degree, though, I could have tried to learn on the job and go from there. Would that speed up my career progress? The impression I get is no. I had such a good time at university it would be a shame to have missed out – it was an invaluable experience. For those who have the opportunity to go to university, and are wondering whether it’s worth it, I would say go. But on its own, it’s not enough to secure a good job.

Ronald Miller died Sept. 30, 2019, after a life of service to the church. Miller’s wife, Mary, died just a year before in September 2018. Miller served congregations in Baltimore including St. Mary the Virgin, Walbrook; Church of the Advent, Federal Hill; St. James’, Lafayette Square; and St. Bartholomew’s, Ten Hills. He also served for a period on the Diocese of Maryland staff and, more recently, sang in the choir at the Cathedral of the Incarnation, also in Baltimore. His ordained ministry spanned more than 55 years in the dioceses of Washington, Pittsburgh and Maryland.Thursday, Oct. 17, marked not only the celebration of and thanksgiving for Miller’s life, but also the celebration of this couple’s being reunited in God. The Millers were known and loved across Baltimore, the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland and The Episcopal Church. They worked tirelessly all their adult lives, he as an Episcopal priest and she as a layperson, for issues of social justice, peace, racial reconciliation, LGBTQ+ rights and marriage equality. Those that knew them attest to their strength as a couple, as true partners who used their gifts to work together to bring God’s dream to this world. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preached at the Oct. 17 service to celebrate Miller’s life, or “as someone referred to him, the other half of the power couple,” Curry said.Miller served as associate and assistant rector at St. James’ Episcopal Church in Baltimore for most of Curry’s 12 years as rector there. After retiring and doing some interim work, Miller began attending the Cathedral of the Incarnation to keep healthy boundaries with his former congregation. Mary Miller continued to worship and be heavily involved at St. James’, the first Episcopal African American congregation south of the Mason-Dixon Line.Ahead of their time, the Millers fought for racial reconciliation. Mary Miller was involved in the Episcopal Society for Cultural and Racial Unity, founded in 1957, which sought to rise beyond “separate but equal” races in the church and is, Curry believes, the first whole church effort toward racial reconciliation. As Curry described at the celebration of her life last year, Mary Miller saw God’s dream and did everything she could to make that dream a reality on earth. “Mary had a way of nudging rectors in the direction of God’s dream. … Mary had ways she would work with – and she was good – and I know from first experience. … She’d do it with rectors, and I became a bishop, and she was doing it with me as a bishop,” he said.Mary Miller was known throughout the church, especially for her work as executive director of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship. The Rev. Annette Chappell, interim rector of Holy Trinity, Essex, in the Diocese of Maryland, remarked that she knew Miller’s name before she even realized Mary Miller was in her own diocese. Mary Miller was outspoken, direct, a true warrior – in the best, nonviolent sense of the word – for peace.Ron Miller served more quietly, through his pastoral ministry and advocacy work across the church. He was a former Marine who worked for peace in a gentle way and who accepted his wife’s commitment “to refuse to participate in or give moral support to any war” through the Episcopal Peace Fellowship. They both served on the forefront of the Episcopal Urban Caucus.In an interview last week, the Rt. Rev. Robert W. Ihloff, 13th bishop of Maryland, remarked, “Ron and Mary lived the gospel of social justice, believing it with their whole being. They exuded that in their priorities, what they spent their money on, what they did. When they were relocating, they chose a poor neighborhood to live in, indicative of their commitment to Baltimore.” Ihloff commented that he found it a powerful coincidence that on the day U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings died, the life of another great Maryland voice for social justice was celebrated. The Millers understood that “a disproportionate amount of Jesus’ time was spent with the poor and marginalized,” Ihloff said.Nancy Ihloff, the bishop’s wife, who has attended the Cathedral of the Incarnation for many years, commented that Ron Miller had no other shirts but his clergy shirts and that he always wore his collar, even when singing in the choir. Bishop Ihloff remarked that Ron Miller was making a statement of his calling by wearing his collar, not being wrapped up in it as his whole identity. “He was mindful of the biblical passage [Psalm 110:4] that ‘you are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.’ His was not a churchy priesthood, it was a down-and-dirty priesthood. They [Ron and Mary] were modest and models of Christian living in so many ways,” he said.The presiding bishop commented that the Millers were always his teachers and that their families spent time together annually during the holidays. “Every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas,” Curry preached last year, “I would sit at Mary’s feet.”On Oct. 17, Curry preached of Ron Miller’s deep faithfulness, punctuality and willingness to give his heart and his life to the God he loved and trusted. He faithfully attended church until he could no longer get there. According to Chappell, Miller remained involved in a Bible study he began more than 20 years ago until he moved into a retirement home last year. Curry commented in his sermon that every sermon Miller ever preached was about love. He would faithfully go through the Scripture, “first the Old Testament reading … then the New Testament and the Gospel,” with each sermon a “meditation on how God’s love tried to work through human life,” Curry said.The presiding bishop’s sermons at both celebrations of life were powerful, delightful and filled with humor. You can view Curry’s sermon, “There’s Something About Mary” from Mary Miller’s celebration of life Oct. 3, 2018, in which he takes the concept of “Mary-ness” through Scripture up to Mary Miller, here. You can view Curry’s sermon at Ron Miller’s celebration of life Oct. 17, 2019, on the Cathedral of the Incarnation’s YouTube channel here.– Carrie Graves is canon for communications in the Diocese of Maryland.

Casa en El Arrayán / Planmaestro + Cristián Schmitt Rivera

first_img Projects Casa en El Arrayán / Planmaestro + Cristián Schmitt Rivera photographs:  Mathias JacobPhotographs:  Mathias Jacob Save this picture!© Mathias JacobText description provided by the architects. The commission was to design a small house for a young couple, to be placed north of an existing house on the same family lot. The site, located at the suburb of El Arrayán and approximately 1000 meters above sea level, has a steep slope to the south-east, that opens a dramatic view of the valley in that direction. The house is organized in two parallel volumes, displaced to sit on the uneven terrain and both facing the view to the east. The lower volume accommodates two bedrooms, each with space for desk, closet and bathroom.Save this picture!SectionThe upper volume is a single space for living room, dining and kitchen. The entrance is located between both volumes at an intermediate level. The guest bathroom and laundry room are located here too. Two sliding windows at each side of the upper volume can be fully opened to the east and west views. Both openings give access to a terrace. The west terrace opens to the ground level in a relatively flat area and allows to walk through the garden and existing trees.Save this picture!© Mathias JacobThe east terrace stands over de lower volume, one story over the ground level, to enjoy the view from a vantage point. This way, a continuous space forms, relating the house’s back and front.

Dovolani is a co-founder and trainer for the national franchise.He said the studio has already received feedback from Fort Worth residents.“We are just now opening [in] Fort Worth,” Dovolani said, “and as I’m walking around the shopping center, people are constantly stopping me, thanking me for opening up the studio here.”What makes the studio unique is that nationally-recognized dancers teach the classes, he added. They don’t just have their names attached to the franchise.Dovolani was born in Kosovo and has danced since the age of three, according to his biography on Dance With Me Studio’s page. He won the 15th season of Dancing with the Stars with his partner and coached Jennifer Lopez and Richard Gere for the 2004 film Shall We Dance. “We truly believe that without dancing life is pretty boring,” he said.SOUFFLÉ EATERYLike the dance studio, Rise n°3 of Rise Soufflé had a high demand from Fort Worth residents.Executive chef and co-owner Cherif Brahmi said Fort Worth customers had been driving out to the Dallas location for his soufflés. Now, they don’t have to.Brahmi grew up in France, went to culinary school and has been a chef for more than 40 years, he said.Brahmi’s French background inspires the cuisine and environment of Rise n°3, said Brian Boulanger, general manager of Rise n°3.Boulanger said that Brahmi created each of the soufflés that Rise n°3 sells – from savory flavors such as “southwest chicken” to sweet flavors such as “apricot.”“A soufflé is a light, fluffy baked dish whipped with egg whites and infused with one of our artisan flavors,” Boulanger said. “It’s really delicious.”When asked what his favorite flavor was, Brahmi said he couldn’t choose just one.“Every one of them is my favorite,” he said, smiling. “If I didn’t like them, I wouldn’t put them on the menu.”Rise n°3 also sells entrées, desserts and wines.DEPARTMENT STORESTwo clothing stores also opened last week, a locally-owned Apricot Lane Boutique and Houston-based Elaine Turner.Jan Morris and her family run Apricot Lane Boutique, a clothing store that emphasizes local ownership and specializes in selling handmade goods.Morris said she and her family moved to Fort Worth seven years ago. “We loved Fort Worth, and it was our dream to have a boutique here.”Morris added that fashion has been an important part of her life.“I have always loved fashion,” she said. “Ever since I was a little girl, my mother used to sew and I used to model at a department store … and [I] just always had a heart for fashion.”Houston-based Elaine Turner opened its Fort Worth location to expand its market in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, marketing manager Meredith Wierick said. The store is also in Plano and Southlake.Pink couches and refreshments welcome customers into a social environment, making Elaine Turner stand out from other department stores, Wierick said.“We don’t look at it as a transactional place but somewhere you can come with your girlfriends,” she said. “You can sit on our hot pink couches, have a glass of wine, champagne, stay as long as you want. We really want it to be a fun environment.”Wierick added that Elaine Turner’s Houston location was not damaged after Hurricane Harvey hit. However, the store is selling “Texas Strong” shirts and giving 100 percent of profits to the Hurricane Harvey Relief fund, she said.OTHER SHOPSThe Shops at Clearfork include two mixed-use office buildings and various entertainment, including an eight-screen AMC theater and Pinstripes Bistro, Bowling & Bocce.The following restaurants are also opening: B&B Butchers, Fixe, Luna Grill, Malai Kitchen, Mesero, Doc B’s, CityWorks, Cru Food & Wine Bar and Twigs Bistro & Martini Bar.A public art program featuring more than six curated pieces will be installed throughout the shops.The Shops at Clearfork is at the northern end of the multi-use Clearfork development, according to Monica Esparza, director of marketing. An outdoor setting with 40 miles of hike-and-bike trails rests on the southern end of the development by the Trinity River.She also wrote that construction on The Shops at Clearfork began in the summer of 2015 and finished its first phase of the project with the opening of Neiman Marcus in February 2017. More shops will open in 2018. + posts Fort Worth recognized for growing music scene ReddIt Kayley Ryanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kayley-ryan/ Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature ReddIt Linkedin Twitter Kayley Ryan Facebook Twitter Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store last_img read more

Now, she uses a new app which has improved her academics by taking away outside distractions.“While the professor lectured, my phone would always ding with text messages or notifications,” Beebe said. “It was hard to focus because I would sneak texts under the table or be tempted to check social media.”But now, those noises are silenced and Beebe no longer has the urge to be distracted by her phone. Instead, she is incentivized to stay off her phone by Pocket Points, an Apple and Android app that rewards her with free food and store discounts if she locks her phone while on campus.The app was created by two Chico State in Northern California students in 2014 because they noticed so many people on their phones in class. Since then, hundreds of universities and companies have worked together for students to use the app on their campus.How it worksBasically a student will download the app, open the app in class, lock their phone and start earning virtual points. With these virtual points, students can redeem their points for discounts and free deals at local restaurants and stores. Here are some places around Fort Worth that accept points:Places students can redeem their Pocket Points at. Venngage InfographicsBeebe said her favorite place to redeem her points is Toppers. “Toppers is so close to campus, and with 300 points I can get a free pizza with one topping,” she said. “I usually get pineapples.” Locking a phone seems pretty simple to earn free food and discounts, but here’s the catch. This app uses “geo-fencing” (A GPS “fence” around the campus), Nelson said. So, the app will only lock a phone and begin earning points if the user is in an academic building. Once a user leaves an academic building, the user can no longer earn points, and Snapchatting, texting and alerts can commence.Nelson said the app goes into every academic building on campus, even the Mary Couts Burnett Library and Rees-Jones Hall.
