first_imgWednesday night, the Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) held its second annual “ACE Night” information session for students considering applying for the post-graduate teaching organization. Students who participate in ACE teach during the school year and attend graduate school at Notre Dame during the summer to earn their Master’s degree in education.Senior Margaret Prakel works for ACE as a student intern, and has committed to teaching for two years after graduation.“ACE is a two-year graduate program started by Fr. [Tim] Scully, and it’s a way for recent college graduates to get into the education system and take their education and affect those who are younger,” Prakel said.Fr. Tim Scully, CSC, and Fr. Sean McGraw, CSC, co-founded ACE in 1993, according to the organization’s website. McGraw spoke at Wednesday’s event, recalling his early involvement in the founding of ACE.“Fr. Scully asked me to help him with a ‘little project,’” McGraw said. “I didn’t know him well enough at the time to know he didn’t have ‘little projects.’”In its first year, ACE sent 40 teachers to eight cities in the South, according to McGraw. This year, between 90 and 95 students will be accepted for the program; roughly half of these students will be from Notre Dame, while the others will come from other universities, according to Matt Gelchion, ACE’s recruiting coordinator.Gelchion, who graduated form Notre Dame in 2009 and went on to teach social studies and religious with ACE, spoke briefly about the purpose of “ACE Night.” He said the goal was more to help students ascertain why they would be interested in joining the program, rather than the intricate details of how it works.“We’re hoping tonight not to so much answer the what and where of ACE, not necessarily the locations or exactly what an ACE teacher will do during the summer; we’re trying to answer the why,” Gelchion said. “In other words, why do we believe ACE is so important? Why has this changed our lives? Why do we believe so strongly in this mission?”Gelchion said that the staff hopes to identify students who would be good matches to join the seven seniors who have already committed to ACE through the internship program.“There are three pillars of our program: teacher formation, community and spirituality,” Gelchion said. “We’re looking for candidates who are well-rounded in those three areas. But more than that we’re looking for students who are able to form k-12 students in those same areas, so to form them as learners; to form them as citizens; to form them into people who are going to grow closer to God.“We’re looking for people who will put these students on the path to college and heaven,” he said.John Schoenig, director of teacher formation and education policy, had a specific vision for how to measure the success of the ACE Teaching Fellows.“Everyone has a story,” Schoenig said. “What we do here is change stories, in little and big ways. The one thing we should be measured by is, in 100 years, how many saints came out of this program both from its teachers and from its students.”The presentation also included a video, showcasing several Notre Dame graduates who are first-year “ACErs.”Alumna Mary Kate Veselik, ’14, who is teaching second graders in New Orleans, said that every day brought a unique experience.“It’s fun and challenging,” Veselik said of ACE. “Not matter what, at the end of the day you’ll be challenged, and you’ll come out of it a different person.”Senior intern Grace Carroll ended the evening by describing her own journey that led her to join ACE, citing several teachers whose dedication inspired her to “be for someone else who those people were to [her].”“You cannot help but be inspired by the zeal and enthusiasm of present and former ACErs,” Carroll said.Tags: ACE, ACE Night, Alliance for Catholic Educationlast_img read more

first_imgThe Tallulah River near Clayton, Georgia is a classic in the Southeast paddling scene. This river is an excellent one for many reasons… proximity to Atlanta and Greenville, easy access via a massive metal staircase, five weekends a year of predictable flows released by the dam, beautiful class IV-V whitewater, and now a great festival during the spring releases.I was fortunate to get down to the Tallulah last weekend for two days of paddling and one night of… err festivaling.  It was awesome.  I saw so many faces that I haven’t been able to catch up with through the winter, and the weather and water could not have been better.For those of you who are not familiar with the Tallulah, its marquee feature is a rapid by the name of Oceana.  It is a beast of a rapid, dropping 50 feet down a giant slide, with the majority of the water piling against a rock shelf to create a phenomenon affectionately referred to as “The Thing.”  This shelf explodes whitewater 15 feet into the air, and reminds any prospective paddler that this is not a rapid to be trifled with.  Hitting The Thing would almost certainly result in leg and ankle injury, and there have historically been two lines: one down the center, and one down the far left.Last fall, Pat Keller pioneered a new line from left to right, crossing right in front of The Thing, and skipping into the built-up pool above it like a jet ski.  Check out Pat’s line here: ProLines from Isaac Levinson on Vimeo.This line was on my mind for a few weeks before the Tallulah release, but as many kayakers know, just because Pat can do something does not mean that you can.  Upon reaching that rapid, I scoped out the line for the better part of an hour before finally deciding that I was ready to go for it.  Fortunately for me, there happened to be a 50+ person peanut gallery to witness the carnage should I come up short and crash into The Thing!I came out of the eddy with my hair on fire and drove hard right over the first exploding wave.  From that point onward, I was running by feel, not able to see anything at all.  I felt my boat gain speed at an alarming rate, and took a stroke when I thought I would be hitting the dangerous lateral that could throw you off line.  Fortunately the timing worked, and before I knew it, my Dagger Nomad was skipping safely through the eddy to the right of The Thing, and flying off the last part of the drop in the center of the river.As I landed, I smiled and looked around in celebration, but was immediately slapped back into the safe but powerful hole at the bottom, and beaten for a good 20 seconds!The river will never cease to humble you, even in your most confident moments.  That line made my day, and I bombed down the rest of the river, across the lake, and jogged back up to my car at the putin still riding that buzz.I love kayaking.last_img read more

first_imgMore about the new study attached. Source: Lokalni.vecernji.hr / Photo: Pixabay.com In the academic year 2019/2020 The University of Split is starting to conduct an undergraduate university study of Hospitality and Gastronomy in Makarska, which is thus becoming a university city. After completing this study, students, given the share of theory in the overall program, can continue their studies at the graduate study of Hospitality and Gastronomy, which will meanwhile be initiated by the University of Split or another related study of this or another university. Upon completion of graduate studies, students have a great opportunity to try in the future in various managerial positions in the hospitality industry, hotel industry and the public sector, which is closely related to these activities. “It is very important for us to have good staff in tourism, that young people do not emigrate to us, but that they can have their bread and income here immediately. Thirty students will be enrolled this year and we can’t wait for them to graduate and find a job in the profession. ” pointed out Hloverka Novak-Srzić, director of the Tourist Board of the city of Makarska. Photo: Hotel Makarska “Makarska is becoming a student city this year, which it deserves considering the place it has in the Split-Dalmatia County as the pearl of tourism of the entire country. This year, 30 students will enroll, and the next 60. Today’s trends in tourism are known, not only in our country, but also in the world, and the fact that there is a lack of quality people who would provide services to tourists and raise the destination a step higher. Without people in catering and tourism there is nothing. This study will educate people in gastronomy and hospitality and will mean a lot for the city as a destination, as well as for all those who live from tourism. Its importance is invaluable. ” points out Deputy Mayor Dražen Nemčić. Side dish: University of Split / Study Hotel and gastronomy The study will be conducted as a full-time study, will last six semesters, and practical classes will be conducted in successful hotel and catering companies. The holder of the study is the University of Split, and it is performed in Makarska, reports Vecernji listlast_img read more

first_imgAs we are talking about the positioning of the Hitlon Garden Inn brand, it is a brand that is especially dedicated to quality and speed of service, is priced in a lower category than DoubleTree and Canopy, and is intended mostly for business people. That is why Zagreb’s Garden Inn is probably the only one in the city with a self-service laundry, iron in every room, mini shop in the lobby, but also an open-air restaurant that serves a la carte daily menus at reasonable prices.  Also, another interesting fact is that Josipa Jutt Ferlan, director of the cluster of Hilton hotels in Zagreb and President of the Management Board of Zagreb City Hotels, told Poslovni dnevnik that the deadline for return on this investment is only five years, which is relatively fast in the hotel business. and is one of the reasons investors love the Garden Inn. It should certainly be pointed out that this is a greenfield investment, of which there are extremely few in Croatia. Interestingly, the Hilton Garden Inn is one of Zagreb’s hotels that will fill up on its own in its first year of operation, thanks to Croatia’s EU Council presidency, which will increase demand for events and accommodation in the second half of 2020, Poslovni dnevnik writes. The Garden Inn has 153 rooms, a fitness center, a shop, a laundry, a convention center on the 8th floor and a multipurpose restaurant on the ground floor. Zagreb can be proud to have as many as three Hilton hotels in its destination. The new Hilton Garden Inn hotel, opened in July on Radnička cesta, and the official opening was held yesterday. The company Zagreb City Hotels, owned by Hrvoje Pezić, has invested 20 million euros in this hotel alone through a greenfield investment in the Zagreb business zone. After the DoubleTree and Canopy hotels, this is their third hotel operating under the Hilton brand in Zagreb, and a total of half a billion kuna has been invested in all three hotels.
