Media ownership in Australia is one of the most concentrated in the world (Learn more). Since the trend of consolidation is and has historically been upward, fewer and fewer individuals or organizations control increasing shares of the mass media in our country. According to independent assessment, about 98% of the media sector is held by three conglomerates. This tendency is not only totally unacceptable, but also to a degree frightening).

The permit deals with surface water, irrigation water, storm drains and any other conveyances on campus that run into local waterways without going through a sewage treatment plant. The meeting to solicit public comment will be held on campus in the Environmental Health and Safety Center at 1000 Regent Drive from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the second floor conference room.

Published: Nov. 18, 2008 Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail A $1.2 million gift from the Tang Fund of New York to the University of Colorado at Boulder, the largest endowed gift ever made to the Center for Asian Studies, will allow students to experience China through a new study abroad program.The Tang Fund donation to CU-Boulder will provide support for an annual summer program in China and cover expenses for one faculty member and about 12 students to study in China and neighboring countries. The program will be available to faculty and students in all disciplines, said Laurel Rodd, director of the Center for Asian Studies.”Firsthand experience in China can enrich education across all disciplines,” said Rodd. “It is our hope that by taking advantage of this program, students will gain new perspectives on their areas of study and a deeper understanding of China.”The program is unique because it is not restricted to students majoring in Asian Studies and seeks to expose a broad spectrum of students to Chinese culture, Rodd said, and will have a different curriculum and professor each year.Topics covered by the program will include Chinese culture, history, religion, art, politics, environment and other disciplines. The program also differs from traditional study abroad programs in that expenses are covered by the endowed gift.”This gift makes China and the study of Chinese cultures accessible to all CU-Boulder students,” said Rodd. “By opening this opportunity to students of all economic backgrounds and in all fields of study, we can encourage more students to learn about one of the world’s oldest, most populous and influential societies.”The program will also help CU-Boulder attain one of its major “Flagship 2030″ goals of extending the university’s educational reach around the world.”This gift will help the university to realize one of our most important strategic goals — establishing CU-Boulder as a global crossroads of education,” said CU-Boulder Chancellor G.P. “Bud” Peterson. “Under Flagship 2030, we envision a campus that is a true global destination for higher education, and a point of embarkation for our students to points around the world. We are grateful to The Tang Fund for helping us to move in this vital direction.”Rodd said the length of the study trips abroad will vary depending on the course, but would typically last 3 to 4 weeks. The destination of each course will be up to the faculty who are leading the trip, she said.”One of the great things about The Tang Fund gift is that we’re not restricted to working with a particular institution in China,” said Rodd. “Students will go to sites that are relevant to the classes they are taking.”CU-Boulder offered similar opportunities in the past with a donation from the Freeman Foundation, Rodd said. One course addressed how Japan and China present their own pasts, taking students to museums in each country. Another course focused on food, exercise and the body and offered students the opportunity to visit sites related to health and exercise, martial arts and food production.The new program will be launched during the summer of 2010.

Photo: Douglas Axe at the 2020 Dallas Conference on Science and Faith, by Chris Morgan.Protein chemist Douglas Axe spoke a few days ago — yes, scandalously, to a live audience, as he was delighted to confirm with the organizers — in Tucson. He defended the thesis that, “Four-Year-Olds Grasp Design Better Than Most Biology Professors.” You can see it here: “A Summary of the Evidence for Intelligent Design”: The Study Guide Recommended You really cannot understand debates about evolution, and other things, without appreciating the ego — the male ego in particular, you could argue — that is involved.

The problem is tyranny.” Of course that’s true of more areas of thought than just evolutionary biology, as he goes on to explain. Also, the tyranny is exerted not only by bullies and through self-censorship — but equally so by what may be the most irresistible tyrant: the picture of ourselves that each one of us carries around in our head. How we are. How we wish to be. And how we wish to be seen. Always, you need to keep in mind the sway of self-image, the hunger to be associated with the smart people.

Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. Email Although the railroad tracks still remain intact, the future Kalispell Trail is seeing more businesses and developments alongside the recreation destination, which will run through the heart of the city.Currently undergoing renovations, 4th and ZURI, located on Fourth Avenue West North, will add to its mercantile store and transform into a multiuse building called ECHOS, which will include boutiques, Airbnb’s and more.When Amy Ek purchased the store in 2018, it held mostly antiques with décor products. But after she noticed a decline in antique sales, Ek chose to shift to a more business-minded building.Ek models 4th and ZURI after a market where she hosts about 50 vendors in the store to create a mercantile mall. The vendors manage their own shop within the store.She has a similar store in Battle Ground, Washington called Rusty Glamour, where there are more designers and handmade items, which she hopes to add more to 4th and ZURI.“I love the local designed items,” Ek said. “There’s so much inspiration and creativity. Customers love that stuff.”While the mercantile encompassed most of the building, Ek has consolidated it to one level and she’s shrinking the store to about one-third to make room for additional businesses.Ek’s clothing line, ZURI, which the entire building was partially named after and currently resides in the store, will expand. She formed the line in 2017 in Portland, Oregon with her niece and she moved it to Kalispell once she bought the facility on Fourth Avenue. She describes the apparel as minimal, luxury clothing for women and children.“We want people to feel comfortable in their clothes,” Ek said.In addition to the store, Ek will add a ZURI sewing center upstairs where she will order fabric from different companies and sew the items right above the store.By having a sewing center in the same building, Ek says it cuts out the transportation of the inventory.“As things sell out, you can go upstairs and grab more,” she said.Upstairs, Ek is also in the process of building four Airbnb’s which will sleep four to six people in each with a common area and a deck outside. Ek says it’s ideal for families who want to rent the whole upstairs or for individuals.Ek is also building about 10 upstairs offices designed for remote workers who wouldn’t otherwise have an office space to work in.The last known portion of the building at this point will be a coffee shop, which will be finished in spring of 2021 with a green area outside, overlooking the Rail Trail.Ek is looking forward to the Kalispell Rail Trail, and she’s hoping to connect with other businesses and the people on the trail.“I want to make sure we connect with the community and connect with the tourists,” she said.4th and ZURI will temporarily close for construction from Jan. 1 to March 1 to complete phase 1, which includes the upstairs Airbnb’s and the office spaces.Phase 2 will begin in January 2021 for the renovation and modernization of the 4th and ZURI store, addition of two boutiques and the coffee shop and relocation of entrances to the south side to overlook the trail. Phase 3 will include final completion of the parking lot and landscaping.For more information, find 4th and ZURI on [email protected]

Shipping lines from each of the alliances have formed an association in a bid to develop “digitalisation, standardisation and interoperability”.The move follows last week’s announcement of a joint blockchain platform comprising the Ocean Alliance and Yang Ming from THE Alliance, which triggered questions as to how the industry would standardise, given Maersk’s involvement with rival platform TradeLens.But while all the alliances are represented in the new association, it includes only Maersk, CMA CGM, Hapag-Lloyd, MSC and Ocean Network Express for now. However, the association – which is neutral and non-profit – has said it will “welcome new members with open arms”.It said it would be operating from early 2019, subject to any regulatory requirements and puts shipping a step closer to creating a cohesive IT infrastructure across the industry. “It’s in the customers’ and stakeholders’ best interest, if container shipping companies operate with a common set of information technology standards,” said André Simha, chief information officer of MSC and group spokesperson.“We are striving for less red tape and better transparency. The timing is right, as emerging technologies create new customer friendly opportunities. Together, we gain traction in delivering technological breakthroughs and services to our customers compared with working in our own closed silos.”The association states firmly that it has no intention of developing or operating any digital platform, but aims to “ensure interoperability through standardisation”.Noriaki Yamaga, managing director, corporate & innovation, at Ocean Network Express, said: “ONE sees a wave of innovation technology development in shipping and logistics industry over the recent years, which can bring good opportunity to the whole industry for digital transformation.“But, at the same time, we’re a little bit cautious about adopting new technology by an individual company since there is no common standard in the market which may be ending up with re-integrating work among all stakeholders in the supply chain.“With this mind, we feel it would be necessary to do some discussion and collaboration on the area of new technology and innovation to establish common IT standards and governance for the industry to streamline and digitise shipping process in a modern way.”Adam Banks, Maersk chief technology officer, added that “a joint set of technical standards will ensure interoperability and enable all parties to concentrate on value adding differentiation … [benefiting] all parties in our customers’ supply chains”.
