18 thoughts for 2018

first_imgIn less than two weeks, we’ll venture into a new year. As 2018 approaches, many of us will reflect on where we are today – with a thought on how we can improve.Along those lines, here are 18 “thoughts” for 2018.Seek to understand. Too often, I judge before I try to understand. It is the curse of the manager. We are slowly, yet surely, trained to look for problems. To offer our two cents to “fix” things. Imagine if everyone focused on “understanding” first.Focus on developing others. Your next email can build people up, or cut someone down. You can criticize, or offer guidance and wisdom. You can add to the noise, or make things better. The choice is yours. But if you want to build stronger, more confident colleagues, the choice is clear.Create the world you want to inhabit. We wish the world were kinder, or more efficient, or this, or that. Well, start with what you control. Create the environment that you want to live in. Don’t be passive. Don’t wait for it to appear. Make it appear. The results can be amazing. continue reading » 25SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Hofstra University/Long Island Press 2016 High School Journalism Awards Winners & Photos

first_img [Show slideshow] 12345► PHOTO GALLERYAll Photos By Jonathan Heislercenter_img Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Hundreds of high school journalism students and their advisors, friends, parents and family members packed Hofstra University’s John Cranford Adams Playhouse May 23 for the 2016 Hofstra University / Long Island Press High School Journalism Awards Program gala, cheering and applauding fellow classmates as they received honors spanning dozens of categories.In its ninth year, the annual high school journalism awards competition and presentation celebration recognizes outstanding journalistic work from students across Nassau and Suffolk counties in print, online, and video, and encompasses reporting and writing, design, illustration, art, and photography.CLICK HERE TO VIEW WINNERS LIST AND PICTURES FROM THE 2016 HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY / LONG ISLAND PRESS HIGH SCHOOL JOURNALISM AWARDS GALA AT HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY!Entrants vied for honors across more than 100 categories, spanning: Community Service, Arts Feature, Best Column, Best Education Story, Best Environmental Story, Best Fashion Feature, Food Commentary, Government Story, Best Headline, Best In-Depth Reporting, Best Investigative Story, News Story, Opinion Piece, School Coverage, Sports, Storytelling, Technology, Travel, Cartoon, Layout, Design, Illustration, Photography, and Magazine, among many others. Special awards are also presented for Story of the Year, Student Journalist of the Year, Advisor of the Year and Newspaper of the Year.Once again, the annual contest and awards show set new records, with more than 2,000 submissions from more than two dozen high schools throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties. Its judges, all Long Island Press and Morey Publishing staffers, were likewise once again enormously impressed by the sheer quality of students’ work and their advisors’ dedication to the craft.“This year’s competition was unprecedented in its scope and quality of submissions,” Morey Publishing/Long Island Press Editor in Chief Christopher Twarowski wrote in a message to students within an awards booklet distributed at the event. “Journalism gives you the license to ask anyone, at any time, the questions that no one else will or dares to ask.”“Long Island is fortunate to have a tradition of great high schools, and we at Hofstra are happy that we can see many graduates of those schools here in their college years,” wrote dean of Hofstra University’s Lawrence Herbert School of Communication, Evan Cornog, Ph.D, in his message to students contained within the booklet. “We enjoy working with our friends at the Long Island Press and are proud that Hofstra is hosting the event to honor the winning students and their teachers and faculty advisors.”Morey Publishing/Long Island Press Associate Publisher Beverly Fortune got the night started with a heartfelt introduction that was both moving and motivational, followed by impassioned opening remarks from Press Publisher Jed Morey and an equally powerful keynote address by Cornog, which emphasized the important role that exceptional journalism plays in our society.A seemingly never-ending procession of high schoolers eagerly ventured across the venue’s stage to accept awards throughout the event’s two-hour duration, excitedly posing for professional photographs with classmates and advisors before returning to their seats.Award-winning journalist, broadcaster, Society of Professional Journalists Press Club of Long Island Board Member, and longtime Long Island Press High School Awards Program Coordinator David North once again did a memorable job as emcee—enthusiastically announcing the dozens of winners with grace and professionalism, while also jazzing things up with funny quips, amusing anecdotes, and his natural charm. Of course, his unforgettable ear-to-ear smile was on full display yet again, as well.The popular program and its joyous awards night is made possible by the extraordinary support of chief sponsor Hofstra University and its renowned Lawrence Herbert School of Communication—and Fortune presented Cornog and North special awards at the closing of the ceremony to recognize their dedication and commitment to making the program so outstanding, year after year.Long Island Press Managing Editor Timothy Bolger, Press Staff/Education Reporter Jaime Franchi, Press Multimedia Reporter Rashed Mian, Press Senior Editor Spencer Rumsey, New York Financial Press Financial Editor Anthony Orbanic, Morey Publishing Inbound Marketing Coordinator Marisa Giannico, Creative Director Jon Sasala, New Media Director Michael Conforti, and Graphic Designers Jeff Main and Jon Chim all took turns at the podium to introduce and congratulate the talented, award-winning high schoolers.Chim once again wowed the crowd with moving words, as did veteran presenter Franchi and first-timer Main.“A good education informs,” explained Franchi while announcing the winners of the Best Education categories. “A great education inspires [students] to never stop learning, never stop dreaming, never close their hearts or minds to new concepts, ideas and beliefs.”“By striving for excellence in their exceptional journalism on these critical topics and issues, these high schoolers have demonstrated a comprehension of Mother Nature that far surpasses their years,” proclaimed Main during his presentation of the Best Environmental Story.Several honors possessed special significance for those in attendance: the Aura Diaz / First Person Award, named after the 16-year old mother from Brentwood, who along with her daughter Natalie, was murdered in 2015; the Andrea Rebello Community Service Award, its 21-year-old namesake a Hofstra student who lost her life in 2013; and the Robert W. Greene Investigative / Enterprise Journalism Award, which honors the memory of legendary, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Bob Greene, who taught at Hofstra University and was instrumental in the founding of its communication and journalism programs.“As Greene once told a colleague, the First Amendment wasn’t created to ‘publish apple pie recipes,’” Twarowski declared while presenting the latter. “It exists to ensure a healthy and free press, to protect those who seek to print the truth, hold people and corporations accountable, and to foster journalism that has an impact and strives to change things for the better.”HERE’S THE COMPLETE LIST OF2016 HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY / LONG ISLAND PRESS HIGH SCHOOL JOURNALISM AWARDS WINNERS:(CLICK HERE TO JUMP TO PHOTOS)REPORTING AND WRITING AWARDSNEWSPAPER OF THE YEAR1.

£45bn LGPS pool appoints quartet of global equity fund managers [updated]

first_imgOne of the main reasons for the UK’s local government pension schemes (LGPS) forming asset pools is to save costs. Rachel Elwell, CEO of Border to Coast, said: “We are delighted that we will be launching our externally managed global equity fund with such a strong line up of investment managers.“It is a testament to the commitment of the asset management community to the LGPS that we received so many high-quality submissions.”As part of its original tender for global equity managers, launched in January, Border to Coast invited multi-manager pitches. However, the pool told IPE this month that it had abandoned plans for this part of the mandate.“We will not be making an appointment under the multi-manager procurement process,” a spokesperson for the pool said. “Although we received some good multi-manager submissions, we have concluded that the mix of high quality managers selected under the direct manager procurement provides the best route to meet the long-term performance and cost objectives of Global Equity Alpha at this stage.”Border to Coast’s 12 local authority partner funds have £45bn in assets between them. The asset pool currently manages around £9bn of this total, across an externally-managed UK equity fund and three equity funds managed by its internal investment team.The asset pool is planning to launch investment grade credit and multi-asset credit funds over the next 12 months. It recently gave asset managers the heads-up about these plans, with more information to be provided during a “fixed income manager day” later this month at the pool’s headquarters in Leeds.Border to Coast’s 12 partner funds are the local authority pension funds for Bedfordshire, Cumbria, Durham, East Riding, Lincolnshire, Northumberland, North Yorkshire, Surrey, South Yorkshire, Teesside, Tyne and Wear and Warwickshire.This article was updated on 10 June to add a statement from Border to Coast regarding a planned multi-manager mandate. Border to Coast Pensions Partnership, an asset pool for 12 UK local authority pension funds, has appointed four managers to a global equities portfolio.Harris Associates, Investec Asset Management, Lindsell Train, and Loomis Sayles & Company have been chosen to manage the partnership’s Global Equity Alpha Fund, its second externally run pooled fund. More than 90 asset management firms bid for the mandate. Subject to regulatory approval, the fund is scheduled to launch later this year with more than £4.5bn (€5.1bn) in assets.In a statement, Border to Coast said the fees it had agreed with the appointed managers were expected to be materially lower than the aggregate fees its 12 partner funds were paying on the assets being moved to the new vehicle.last_img read more

Hamilton Council praised for move to stop funding projects from pokies proceeds

first_img“We know that pokie machines in the clubs and pubs are most often in the poorest communities and cause the greatest gambling harm to individuals, families and communities,” she said. The foundation acknowledged the worthwhile causes that used pokie funding but it was money coming from the pockets of those that could least afford it. Hamilton council voted 8-3 in favour of ceasing to continue to fund projects from pokie proceeds. There was one machine for every 465 people in wealthy areas of New Zealand, but the ratio in more deprived areas was one to 75.center_img TVNZ One News 11 August 2017Family First Comment: A good and principled decision.Other local authorities are being urged to follow the lead of Hamilton City Council and stop funding projects from the proceeds of pokies.Problem Gambling Foundation chief executive Paula Snowden says Hamilton’s decision showed leadership and integrity, and she hopes others follow suit.She says Mayor Andrew King’s comment about the harm that pokies cause is spot on.
