    Chancellor Dubois, in his January 30, 2017 statement, highlights that President Trump’s recent executive orders regarding banning refugee admission into our country for 120 days and the travel from seven Muslim-majority nations for 90 days, has sparked considerable confusion and concern. Additionally, this and other proposed actions have caused a rise in activism and tensions across the country. UNC Charlotte’s leadership continues to monitor the unfolding interpretations of the president’s mandates.

    Historian Steven Sabol’s new book is a happy coincidence of fly-fishing and history. During a 2006 fishing trip to trout-filled Nez Perce Creek in Yellowstone National Park, Sabol spied a sign with tantalizing details about the flight of the Nez Perce through the park in the 19th century. The sign set Sabol on a comparative history journey exploring the treatment of nomadic people by two empires – the U.S. and Russia.

    Undergraduate students from around the nation who may have thought graduate school was out of their reach found out in a one-week summer institute at UNC Charlotte that it is within their grasp.

The institute seeks to diversify the field of organizational science through professional development, specifically targeting historically underrepresented undergraduate students.

    Join us for a one-hour Research: Art Works grant guidelines workshop. A presentation by NEA Office of Research Analysis staff will be followed by a Q A session. The National Endowment for the Arts Office of Research Analysis makes awards to support research that investigates the value and/or impact of the arts, either as individual components of the U.S. arts ecology or as they interact with each other and/or with other domains of American life.

    Research: Art Works is a National Endowment for the Arts grant program supporting projects that seek to investigate the value and impact of the arts for individuals and communities. The proposed projects may use quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-methods approaches. Application guidelines for the present round of funding are now available on the NEA website. The deadline is October 10, 2017.

    It’s no secret that embarking on a professional career in the arts requires a degree of boldness in the face of economic uncertainty. The prevailing stereotype of the “starving artist” indicates that people do so anyway – either willing to forego comfort for creativity’s sake, possessing alternative income (such as a day job or family help), and/or confident that their talent and drive will see them through. But how long do they stick with it before throwing in the towel – or professionally shifting gears?

    This report makes the case that industrial design is an underutilized catalyst for growth for small and medium-sized U.S. manufacturers and a key ingredient in the future success of these firms. Derived from an intensive literature search and more than 40 interviews with people from the industrial design and manufacturing fields, the report explores why industrial design has become an influential factor in manufacturing, why it is underutilized in small and medium-sized firms, and how it is being used in innovative partnerships across manufacturing disciplines.

    This report addresses how the California Alliance for Arts Education achieves equity and excellence in education through arts education initiatives and explores how to create a lasting mechanism that removes barriers for connecting effective arts education strategies to renewable sources of funding.

    Jive Dance

    Updated January 16, 2017

    Jive is a lively, and uninhibited variation of the jitterbug. Many of its basic patterns are similar to those of the East Coast swing. Jive is one of the five International Latin dances, although it has an African-American origin.

    Characteristics of Jive Dancing

    Jive and East Coast swing share many figures, as well as the same music style and tempo. The basic look and feel of jive is that it is performed with lots and lots of energy, with the legs portraying a pumping action.

    Both the East Coast swing and basic jive consist of two triple steps and a rock step. The jive differs in that the count begins with the rock step, which is counted 1, 2. The two triple steps are counted 3 and 4 and 5 and 6. In competition, it is danced at 176 beats per minute.

    History of Jive

    Jive was first demonstrated by Cab Calloway in 1934. It caught on in the United States in the 1940s and was influenced by the Boogie, Rock Roll, African/American Swing and Lindyhop. The name either comes from jive being a form of glib talk or from African dance terms. Jive became a generic term for swing in the United Kingdom.

    In International Style ballroom dancing competition, jive is grouped with the Latin dances but it is danced to Western music, with 42 bars per minute in 4/4 time.

    Jive Action

    Jive is a very happy, boppy, energetic dance, with plenty of knee-lifting, bending, and rocking of the hips.

    The fastest of the Latin dances. jive incorporates lots of kicks and flicks, even twirling of the woman, and doesn t move around the dance floor like other dances. Although jive dancers may appear to be moving their feet haphazardly in every direction, the feet are actually well-controlled under the body with the knees close together.

    Distinctive Jive Dance Steps

    The basic jive step (jive basic) is a 6-beat pattern:

    • The man and woman face each other with arms in the closed position and the man leads.
    • Rock step (counts 1 and 2): Step one foot behind the other and lift the front foot up. The man steps back with his left foot while the woman steps backward with her right foot.
    • Chasse to the left (counts 3 and 4) The man goes left, the woman goes right.
    • Chasse to the right (counts 5 and 6) The man goes right, the woman goes left.

    A few distinctive Jive steps:

    Jive Music and Rhythm

    Jive can be danced to swing music and jump blues in the tempo range of about 200 beats per minute. Depending on the style preferred, Jive can be danced to a variety of upbeat music including Boogie-woogie, Swing and Rock and Roll. The most important thing for beginners is to get familiar with the rhythm of the music. Listen to the drum line rather than the melody. the drum provides the beat.

    Master of Fine Arts

    The MFA is the highest degree in the creative practice of visual art.

    An artist’s studio practice is best learned through self-design and execution. While we emphasize fostering private creative roles, our practice-based, multidisciplinary program also focuses on marketing your work in today’s creative professional fields. In our two-year, 60-hour curriculum of project-based thinking, you’ll design, create and explain your work. In other words: You’re the artist, it’s your vision, and it’s up to you to communicate it.

    MFA project proposals can be based in painting, drawing, photography, animation, sculpture, video, interactive design, printmaking, illustration, installation, glass, ceramics and design.

    As an MFA student, you’ll work with select faculty who provide one-on-one feedback. They will push and challenge you as part of a community that is supportive and rigorous, demanding and compassionate. You’ll meet weekly in the Graduate Seminar for group critiques with your faculty and peers. Our program features small class sizes, accepting only nine to 15 students per year. To gain exposure and insight from industry professionals, you’ll also work with an off-campus mentor or participate in a practicum. The degree concludes with a thesis project, written thesis paper and oral defense.

    You can get even more information in our MFA Guidebook or join us on campus for an information session .

    MFA FACILITIES

    We’ve built an environment to fuel collaboration, experimentation and creation.

    The CCAD MFA program is located on the second and third floors of CCAD’s Design Studios on Broad, a renovated early-20th-century auto dealership near downtown Columbus. The 13,700-square-foot graduate facility includes individual student studios, faculty offices, a lounge and an exhibition space. You’ll also have access to CCAD’s library, plus many labs, shops, computer complexes, darkrooms and studios.

    MENTORSHIP EXPERIENCE

    Your education isn’t limited to what happens in our classrooms in Columbus. As a graduate student, you’ll participate in an Off-Campus Mentorship Experience where you define what “Off-Campus” means to you. This could mean a residency in Ireland, a three-week endeavor at the Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle or working with a nonprofit just down the street. Maybe you’re looking to create a virtual mentorship with an internationally acclaimed artist overseas. Meant to be complementary to your CCAD education, this exposure to an outside business, community and/or cultural leader will be influential as you dive into a greater depth of understanding yourself as an artist. Your mentor is a resource for developing your professional skills, finding pathways to your desired career and more.

    U.S. Supreme Court to hear Ohio s bid to revive voter purge policy

    FILE PHOTO: U.S. Supreme Court is seen in Washington, U.S. October 3, 2016. Yuri Gripas/File Photo

    (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to hear Ohio’s appeal of a lower court ruling that blocked the Republican-led state’s policy of purging people from voter-registration lists if they do not regularly cast ballots because it violated federal law.

    Civil liberties advocates who challenged Ohio’s policy said it illegally erased voters from registration rolls and unlawfully disenfranchised minorities and poor people who tend to back Democratic candidates. The justices will review a U.S. appeals court ruling that Ohio’s policy ran afoul of a 1993 law called the National Voter Registration Act, which Congress passed to make it easier for Americans to register to vote.

    A Reuters analysis last year found that in Ohio’s three largest counties, which include Cleveland, Cincinnati and Columbus, voters were struck from the rolls in Democratic-leaning neighborhoods at roughly twice the rate as in Republican neighborhoods under the policy.

    Ohio officials argued that canceling registrations for voters deemed inactive for six years helped keep voting rolls current and accurate, clearing out those who have moved away or died. In September 2016, ahead of the U.S. presidential election, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati ruled that the policy was unlawful.

    Democrats have accused Republicans of taking steps at the state level, including laws imposing new requirements on voters such as presenting certain types of government-issued identification, intended to suppress the vote of minorities, the poor and others who generally favor Democratic candidates.

    The American Civil Liberties Union last year sued Ohio Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted, arguing that the state was violating the National Voter Registration Act, which prohibits states from striking registered voters “by reason of the person’s failure to vote.” The 6th Circuit agreed.

    Under Ohio’s policy, if registered voters miss voting for two years, they are sent registration confirmation notices. If they do not respond and do not vote over the following four years, they are removed from the rolls.

    Husted has said Ohio’s policy has been in place since the 1990s under both Republican and Democratic secretaries of state.

    The suit said the policy led to the removal of tens of thousands of people from the voter rolls in 2015, including one of the lead plaintiffs, Larry Harmon, a software engineer and U.S. Navy veteran who was blocked from voting in a state marijuana initiative in 2015.

    Republican Donald Trump won Ohio in last November’s presidential election.

    The National Voter Registration Act, dubbed the “Motor-Voter” law when it was enacted, required states to permit registration by mail or when eligible people apply for or renew a driver’s license, or visiting certain government agencies or military recruiting offices.

    (Corrects spelling of first name of Ohio secretary of state Husted in 6th paragraph, Jon instead of John.)

    Liberal Arts and Sciences General Education Degree Requirements – College of Charleston

    Liberal Arts and Sciences General Education Degree Requirements

    Consistent with its heritage since its founding in 1770, the College of Charleston retains a strong liberal arts undergraduate general education curriculum. The Liberal Arts and Sciences General Education requirement serves all students, regardless of major, and assures that students are exposed to a breadth of intellectual inquiry distributed across seven areas of the curriculum: History, Humanities, Mathematics and Logic, Foreign Language, Natural Science, Social Science, and Writing. The general education program emphasizes acquisition of knowledge, communication and languages, analysis, explanation and problem-solving. Faculty have defined specific learning outcomes for each of the distribution areas. The fields of knowledge reflected in the College’s seven general education distribution areas draw nearly equally from two dominant models: the mid-twentieth century “core distribution areas” (humanities, social science, natural science, and later mathematics) and the “traditional liberal arts” originating in a classical curriculum (literature, history, philosophy, and foreign languages).

    The College’s general education distribution requirement provides a measure of structure by specifying which fields of learning every student must include, but allows each student the flexibility to select specific courses from among those approved for inclusion in each of the seven distribution areas. General education courses are designed to provide students with a solid foundation for further study as well as allow for intellectual exploration within the liberal arts and sciences. General education coursework in the liberal arts and sciences is an essential part of each undergraduate’s education at the College of Charleston.

    Students must fulfill the general education requirements in effect at the time of their matriculation at the College of Charleston. Matriculation is defined as the first term of degree seeking enrollment or first term of readmission at the College. The general education requirements catalog year remains fixed during the period of time a student is continuously enrolled.

    Are you interested in finding out about career choices in the culinary arts?

    The culinary arts industry is continually looking for potential individuals. And one of the leading features of this business is that motivated people can often begin working fast, without needing to spend years at school.

    Most professionals in this business began by enrolling in classes at a college that supplied brief, focused training in culinary arts topics. These types of institutions can successfully prepare students for successful culinary careers.

    These institutions supply professional groundwork and instruction for individuals who may likely one day be in job opportunities including:
    Chefs
    Nutrition specialists
    Kitchen managers
    Menu planners
    Pastry chefs
    Baker assistants
    Cooks
    Foodservice specialists
    Caterers
    Banquet chefs
    Culinary supervisors
    Bakery chefs
    Dessert caterers

    Besides sessions that educate enrollees to actually work in a kitchen, restaurant and hospitality studies programs condition enrollees for positions in the banquet, hotel, restaurant and other food service establishments. This form of instruction can condition students for work in roles including:
    Food service manager trainee
    Catering specialist
    Restaurant management
    Hotel manager
    Dining room administration
    Restaurant supply purchasing specialist
    Banquet specialist

    Students who go after a culinary profession typically decide on one of three degree program levels:
    1. Bachelor Degree
    2. Associate in Science Degree
    3. Certificate of Achievement

    A certificate of achievement training program is normally a one-year process. Certain programs may be even longer while others might well be shorter.

    Certificates can often be awarded to students in various categories of expertise. Although the majority of certificate education is for general culinary arts instruction, some institutions offer concentrations in facets such as baking and pastry making.

    An associate’s degree program is most often two years long, but a number of students may be able to finish sooner.

    A bachelor’s degree is a four-year process. Students who are in the restaurant operations management discipline will also be forced to take business classes and traditional elective courses to be able to earn a bachelor’s diploma.

    For the most part, students who wish to work as a chef or work in the actual food preparation section of a restaurant usually enroll in a one or two-year program. Students who desire to succeed in the restaurant management field should expect to strive towards gradually completing a bachelor’s degree at a university or college, but this degree can often be concluded after they actually begin working in the restaurant business.

    Typical classes may include:
    Purchasing and buying for the kitchen
    Supervising and working with others in food service
    Catering and special events operations, including equipment and menu planning
    Basic mathematics for use in the kitchen and restaurant
    An overview of restaurant operations and dining room service
    Fundamentals of baking
    Advanced pastry making, including cakes, frozen and low-calorie items
    Introduction to Desserts
    Meat, fish and poultry, including food safety standards
    Garnishes and preparation
    Decorative confectionary and dessert making
    An introduction to the typical restaurant kitchen and tools
    Nutrition and nutritional guidelines in menu preparation
    Menu planning and development
    An introduction to the hospitality business
    Cuisine fundamentals
    Safety, sanitation and food handling in the kitchen
    Beverages, including wine and spirits and coffee
    Food and wine pairing
    Principles of food and beverage costs
    Advanced cuisine topics which may include seasonal subjects

    Many programs will include internship opportunities which will consist of actual job experience in a local restaurant or commercial kitchen.

    Find a Top Cooking School in a Canadian Province

    British Columbia is most renowned for cosmopolitan and inventive Vancouver, also known as Hollywood of the North, and for quaint nearby Victoria. Both are nearly close enough to throw a stone from Washington State. So it’s no wonder then that one of the most popular U.S. culinary programs has carved out a campus in Vancouver for budding chefs and bakers across the border. But you’ll discover a couple of other leading culinary arts schools in Vancouver.

    Major Canadian cities include Toronto. Vancouver. Montreal. Ottawa. and Calgary. The country is an international melting pot of language, culture and foods. Regional cuisines weave a tapestry of traditional, ethnic and inventive fusions from street food to fine dining. French cuisine remains common as well as creative French-American dishes. Study and live in Montreal and expect to be fluent in French, which is the primary language in Quebec province. But cities like Vancouver, Toronto, and Ottawa speak largely English. Venture into ethnic enclaves and you’ll hear languages from far-flung countries.

    State of the Hospitality Industry

    The hospitality and food service industries are perennially booming north of the border, great potential if you’re seeking an international destination not that far from home. And if you’re into skiing or winter sports Canada offers some of the best slopes in the world. Economically the country is thriving, as well, which also fuels the career potential for qualified chefs. Get a passport and you’re as good as there.

    Understanding Canada’s Read Seal Certification Standards

    If you’re going to be studying as a chef in Canada you need to have a grasp of The Red Seal certification program. This government standard – The Inter-Provincial Standards Red Seal Program — ensures vocational training like that of culinary and cooking schools, is standardized across the country. When a restaurant executive chef checks out your resume and sees that you’re a certified Red Seal chef, he or she knows that you have met certain industry competencies and been taught to a defined industry standard, regardless of your experience or ambition. To be certified you must take the Red Seal Certification test.

    Jobs for Chefs in Canada

    Earn your chef’s whites in Canada and you could be qualified for a job in a variety of capacities:

    • restaurant chef/cook
    • hotel chef
    • banquet chef

    What Is a Liberal Arts School?

    As you begin your pursuit of a bachelor’s degree, you’ll be confronted with numerous decisions about colleges and majors. There are massive schools with tens of thousands of undergraduate students and tiny schools with barely more than 1,000 students. You’ll find professional schools, technical schools, vocational schools, business schools and research institutions. If you haven’t already considered earning your bachelor’s degree from a liberal arts college, it’s something to think about now. There are several benefits of choosing a liberal arts school, from personal attention to the development of valuable and versatile skills.

    Traits of Liberal Arts Colleges

    Most liberal arts schools tend to be small, and not just in total enrollment numbers. Their characteristic small class sizes, which allow for more individual attention throughout your education, happen to be one of the most popular features of a liberal arts education.

    Liberal arts schools tend to be private rather than publicly funded, The College Board reported, although that’s not always the case. Many maintain some form of religious affiliation, though not all do.

    Despite their private status, most liberal arts schools don’t have the high price tag that accompanies an education from many private universities. Liberal arts colleges also tend to be quite generous with their financial aid packages – more so even than many public state schools, CBS News reported. A year’s worth of tuition at one of the most affordable high-quality liberal arts colleges in the nation can be as low as $12,800.

    The typical liberal arts college is a four-year institution. While you may earn your bachelor’s degree in liberal arts generally, you may also have the option to choose a major or focus area in a subject like history, literature, philosophy, theology, English or foreign languages.

    What to Expect from a Liberal Arts Education

    Don’t let the name “liberal arts college” mislead you. Students do study artsy topics like music and literature and subjects in the humanities, like history and languages. However, they also develop a thorough background in math and science, according to The College Board.

    In many ways, it’s not so much what subjects of study a liberal arts education includes that are important, but instead what skills you will cultivate as you earn your degree. At a liberal arts college, you won’t just learn the technical, professional or research skills you need to succeed in a specific career. You’ll take courses in many disciplines that help you develop abilities like thinking critically, speaking eloquently and writing clearly. You will learn to analyze and communicate information well, which are skills that numerous employers in countless industries find valuable.

    A liberal arts college isn’t the right choice for every student. However, for those who are seeking a versatile education that will help them further skills they can use throughout a wide range of careers, academic environments and life situations, going to a liberal arts school may be an excellent decision.
