High Standards for Diversity and Inclusion is required in Higher Education

As the Vice President/Chief Diversity Officer for Apollos University, I would like to welcome you to join the Apollos family as a student, faculty, or staff member. ”

— Dr. Marva Young

GREAT FALLS, MT, UNITED STATES, June 6, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — At Apollos, we take diversity and inclusion seriously. In our dynamic learning environment, we embrace diversity of students, faculty, staff, and ideas. Our highly qualified students, faculty, and staff with their diverse backgrounds, and experiences create a rich and practical learning environment for all Apollos community members. Apollos has been at the forefront of innovation and meeting the needs of diverse learners through flexible, affordable, and accredited education for all that strive for personal and professional excellence.

Most U.S. brick and mortar colleges and universities have a Chief Diversity Officer or VP for Diversity and Inclusion. Most accredited online colleges or universities do not have a designated person for this role. Apollos is proud to be one of the very first and online/hybrid universities to embrace this role and has done so since 2011.

The Apollos commitment to recruit and retain the best students, faculty, and staff, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, parental status, veteran status, or military status led the university board of directors and leadership to appoint a Chief Diversity Officer (CDO). Apollos is among the first online universities to recognize the importance of this role to ensure fairness, quality assurance and inclusion across all areas of our learning environment and university as a whole. Though it is not mandated for accreditation or by the U.S. Department of education, Apollos recruited our first Vice President/Chief Diversity Officer from our faculty early in our university history. Diversity and inclusion has been a vital component to Apollos's founding, continued growth, sustainability, and degree program development.

Dr. Young stated, “As the Vice President/Chief Diversity Officer for Apollos University, I would like to welcome you to join the Apollos family as a student, faculty, or staff member. We aim to meet and/or exceed your higher education, fairness, and inclusion expectations.”

Dr. Young is also excited to share a new university initiative to encourage global inclusion and foster academic excellence. The Apollos CEO, President, and Alumni Association are working to establish an Apollos chapter of the Golden Key International Honor Society, which emphasizes inclusion as one of their principles, for all our students who distinguish themselves during their degree programs.

The Animal Wellness Podcast: The Bloodbath of Killing Contests #Animals2020

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, June 6, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — by Marty Irby

Wildlife Killing Contests (WKCs) are a disgrace. And, for all the right reasons, they are under siege.

In September 2019, the Arizona Governor’s Regulatory Review Council (GRRC) voted unanimously to approve a rule initiated by the Arizona Game and Fish Commission banning WKCs for predators and other furbearing animals in the Grand Canyon State. A grassroots effort energized by concerned animal welfare advocates and even hunters, and led by Animal Wellness Action’s Lain Kahlstrom and Tina Meredith, provided the impetus for the rulemaking action.

Events like the “Santa SLAY” and “Fox Frenzy” killing contests – slaughter-fests where participants compete to win cash and prizes for killing the greatest number, the heaviest, or even the smallest of the targeted species within a certain time frame (usually 24 hours or a weekend) – soon became a closed chapter in the book of Arizona’s wildlife management history.

But the practice of killing these animals at WKCs continues across America in many other states where thousands of animals including coyotes, bobcats, foxes – and even mountain lions, badgers and coatimundi – are trying to eke out a living. These gruesome events are often intentionally concealed from the public's view. In 2020, Colorado became the sixth U.S. state to ban killing contests when it enacted a regulation prohibiting contests targeting furbearer and small game species. In 2019, Arizona and Massachusetts outlawed contests for multiple predatory and furbearing species. New Mexico and Vermont prohibited coyote killing contests in 2019 and 2018, respectively, and California outlawed the awarding of prizes and inducements for killing non-game mammals and furbearers in 2014.

Animal Wellness Action is now working in Pennsylvania to secure a ban on the practice, and is partnering with Project Coyote, an organization whose mission is “to promote compassionate conservation and coexistence between people and wildlife through education, science and advocacy.”

This week’s episode of the Animal Wellness Podcast features two guests on the show: AWA’s Lain Kahlstrom, and Project Coyote’s Camilla Fox. Fox, the organization’s founder and executive director, discussed her latest documentary production Killing Games: Wildlife In The Crosshairs, which provides a first-ever, close-up view of the killing contest subculture. With more than twenty years of experience working on behalf of wildlife and wildlands and a Master’s degree in wildlife ecology, policy, and conservation, Fox helps viewers understand what’s at stake for wildlife. Join us in listening to the episode by clicking here.

The Animal Wellness podcast is a regular segment that not only delivers timely information but offers insights and analysis you won’t hear anywhere else. We’ll offer in-depth discussions of local, state, or federal policy and elections, and the effects of laws and regulations on corporations. We hope you’ll listen today, and also check out a previous episode:

Virtosu Art Gallery Museum of Art Receives a Huge Donation of Modernist Paintings

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

— Winston Churchill

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 6, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Virtosu Art Gallery Museum of Art has made some interesting acquisitions over the past decade, but the art institution was recently handed a particularly excellent collection of Modernist works that will draw plenty of new and returning visitors by the end of 2021.

Philanthropists Kurt and Sally Burns were responsible for the gift, which includes 38 paintings by distinguished artists including Van Gogh, Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, Theo Van Doesburg, Robert Delaunay, and Franz Kline. “Their gift is really a godsend,” museum director Bernard Vernier told the New York Times. “It’s a blessing.”

Indeed, the partnership between philanthropists and museums is fruitful and symbiotic. If a successful organization spends years accumulating considerable assets, it's only natural that they'd want to spend some time in the downtime cultivating an admirable collection of art to signal their exquisite taste. As they get older, however, the natural next step is to pass along their art collection to a public institution: this conveys their willingness to give back to their community.

Virtosu Art Gallery Museum of Art believed it could accept donations of art by creating an art program for its constituents while increasing its endowment. Under the part-time curatorial direction of Bernard Vernier, a one-time minister, the Museum has received over 4000 donations of art that are presently valued in excess of $110,000,000.

How did the Museum find new donors and create an art education program? They put the word out on the street that donations of art would be welcome. Soon, wealthy neighbors and businesses responded by offering their art to the Museum. Reflecting on the program’s success, Mr. Bernard Vernier suggested that "people learned something about how their gifts of art could help our communities."

Robert Bailey UC Berkeley Responds to the Corona Virus Outbreak

Robert Bailey UC Berkeley

Robert Bailey UC Berkeley

BERKELEY, CA, USA, June 5, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Years in Singapore gives him a unique perspective on the culture surrounding the virus

Robert Bailey UC Berkeley former director of admissions is very familiar with Southeast Asia. Before coming to Berkeley he spent many years traveling in Southeast Asia and had many trips to China.

It is believed the Coronavirus that is currently infesting every nation in the world, began in Wuhan. Robert Bailey UC Berkely believes the popularity of exotic meat in the Wuhan area may have been the breeding ground for the virus.

"It (Coronavirus) was first discovered in a local wholesale food market," Robert Bailey said.

Wuhan was also the starting point of the SARS epidemic that started in 2003. This was two years after Robert Bailey UC Berkeley had left Singapore to begin working in British Columbia, Canada.

Robert Bailey UC Berkeley has been an administrator all over the world and has long been interested in making college registration efficient and easy for students.

Wuhan is a historic city that has a 350-year-old Guiyuan Temple and a pagoda-like yellow crane tower. But Robert Bailey notes that it is also an important education city as well. It has53 universities, and the largest one, Wuhan University, has 60,000 students.

While the virus has faded some in China, Robert Bailey UC Berkeley is interested in how those universities will make the needed transition to electronic record keeping.

“How does a city that large, and that old, dating back as far as 1460 BC, keep their records, and move them into 2020?” he asks, somewhat rhetorically.
Robert Bailey UC Berkeley's former registrar would naturally be interested in that question as he has more than 20 years of experience in records management. That experience has involved innovation that has followed Robert Bailey UC Berkeley through the years.

While director of Registration at the University of Oklahoma he identified a single site for registration. Thie eliminated long lines during registration which was the traditional method at the time. In addition, he was able to implement a system that cut grading and reporting time for instructors, which allowed students to get their grades and reports faster.

Robert Bailey UC Berkeley former director was also in Singapore for eight years doing similar work.

"I served as the dean of American College, the vice president for records at Transnational, and as a senior lecturer for Temasek Polytechnic in its information studies program,” said Robert Bailey UC Berkeley former registrar and director of admissions,
While stationed in Singapore he went to 33 countries and made many trips into China, but Robert Bailey UC Berkeley said he does not remember hearing much about the city at that time.

“Now,” Robert Bailey UC Berkeley former director said, “Wuhan is in the news worldwide; the historical city has become ground zero of the new coronavirus outbreak.”

He would like to go there at some point in the future, and he still has some connections in Singapore that could help him make that happen. Robert Bailey UC Berkeley said he would wait until the medical crisis settles down before making such a trip.

WatsonBuys.com is Open and Buying Houses in Denver, Colorado

We buys houses in Denver, Colorado

watson-buys.com

Watson Buys has been buying homes in Denver for over a decade

Local company, Watson Buys, remains open through the global pandemic, buying homes for cash and proving loyalty to Denver's housing market and its residents.

DENVER, COLORADO, USA, June 5, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cash home buyer WatsonBuys.com announced today that the company is still buying houses in Denver, Colorado. This is despite most other companies deciding not to show for support for the local economy. “We continue to provide safe, easy, and practical solutions for homeowners who need to sell their house quickly. Despite the disruptions that the Corona Virus is creating in Denver’s housing market, we are working hard, implementing new technologies and better processes to provide the best solution for homeowners in Denver” says Sornie, head of technology at Watsonbuys.com

Many Instant Buyers, including giants like Opendoor, Zillow, and Offerpad have decided not to support the Denver Market and are continuing to suspend all home buying operations in Colorado. Watsonbuys.com maintains a presence and continues to give homeowners the best available options. Their latest process updates ensure homeowner safety with a new policy that addresses social distancing while allowing sellers to sell their house fast, for a great price and for cash.

Shaun Martin, CEO stated, “As we are a local company we truly understand the value Denver provides for companies like ours that buys houses for cash. Also, as we live here, we want to invest in our local communities to ensure our backyard stays relevant. Now is the time to re-evaluate your priorities as a company and potentially reduce bottom line profits for the greater good of the neighborhoods. Of course, we need to stay solvent, and we will. By continuing to employ efficient process, innovate technologies and keeping lines of communication open to local industry experts, WatsonBuys.com will maintain its leadership role in Denver’s housing market now and well into the future.”

Highlights to recent process updates that enable effective and safe ongoing transactions to include a reduction in one on one contact allowing for:

1. Virtual meetings with representatives on WatsonBuys.com.
2. Homeowners can provide live video walkthroughs.
3. Complete transaction completed virtually from offer through to cash deposit into the homeowner’s account.

WatsonBuys.com continues to be a market leader in Denver, Colorado ensuring people that need to sell quickly get the following benefits:

1. They always give you their best cash offer guaranteed
2. Service that is fast, fair, and free to you – we still pay for everything.
3. Unlike most companies they actually buy the property ourselves – many companies include an assignment option and never intend to buy your house.
4. They will close when you need to close.
5. Watson Buys use their own money so the cash is 100% guaranteed.

“In today’s current market there is no need to panic,” says Shaun. “In-fact recently released market reports show homes are still selling in Denver and other surrounding housing markets. And rest assured if you have a house that you want to sell we are still here, ready to provide you with and cash offer right now! WatsonBuys.com was here yesterday, today and will be here tomorrow.”

Companies giving cash offers are a dime a dozen. Therefore it is difficult to know if you are dealing with a company that you can trust. WatsonBuys.com has been in the industry for well over a decade. Watsonbuys.com is local, so they understand the current market conditions and the value of your home.


About WatsonBuys.com
Trusted by homeowners for over a decade Watson Buys continues to buy homes, does tasteful remodels, then rents them out. Sometimes they will sell them, often by request of a neighbor who has family and friends wanting to live nearby. This business model ensures your community home values are maintained. They do not buy houses then leave them sitting empty. This practice, by many companies, significantly detracts from your street appeal and can significantly impact the value of your house too. With two offices now in Denver, Colorado WatsonBuys.com is committed to providing the best service now and in the future.

Not for distribution to U.S. Newswire Services or for dissemination in the United States. Any failure to comply with this restriction may constitute a violation of U.S. securities laws.

Unlike in Canada which has Federal legislation uniformly governing the cultivation, distribution, sale and possession of medical cannabis under the Cannabis Act (Federal), readers are cautioned that in the U.S., cannabis is largely regulated at the State level. To the knowledge of Vibe Bioscience Ltd., there are to date a total of 33 states, plus the District of Columbia, that have legalized cannabis in some form. Notwithstanding the permissive regulatory environment of medical cannabis at the State level, cannabis continues to be categorized as a controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act in the U.S. and as such, cannabis-related practices or activities, including without limitation, the manufacture, importation, possession, use or distribution of cannabis are illegal under U.S. Federal law. Strict compliance with State laws with respect to cannabis will neither absolve Vibe Bioscience Ltd. of liability under the U.S. Federal law, nor will it provide a defense to any Federal proceeding, which may be brought against Vibe Bioscience Ltd. Any such proceedings brought against Vibe Bioscience Ltd. may adversely affect its operations and financial performance.
