Harvard President Drew Faust today invited scholars doing innovative work of significance to contemporary China to submit preliminary “expressions of interest” for funding from the Harvard Global Institute (HGI) for the 2016–17 academic year.In October, Faust announced the creation of the HGI to support scholarship and programs that will deepen Harvard’s international engagement and promote University-wide research to address major global challenges. The institute will support projects that ally Harvard faculty and students with scholars from outside the United States to investigate problems of international consequence, produce findings, and advance goals in ways that achieve significant impact both here and abroad.“The original impetus for the institute arose from the recognition that, although Harvard did not believe the establishment of campuses outside the United States to be advisable, there was nevertheless reason to consider building upon our existing intellectual presence at select international sites,” Faust said when the HGI was announced. “Such an effort, it was noted, might both strengthen existing programs and enable faculty without deep prior international experience to situate their work in a broader global context.”In its inaugural year, the HGI will fund proposals for interdisciplinary research on issues that are of import to China and of relevance to other parts of the world. Research will take place on the Harvard campus and in China, where operational assistance will be provided by the Harvard Center Shanghai.Funding will be available for both large and small grants.The large-scale grants will support multi-faculty, cross-School, cross-discipline, integrative projects tackling problems or issues of global relevance that build on existing research and include significant collaboration with scholars in China and potentially in other countries. The funding for these projects will be $500,000 to $1 million annually, with the possibility for up to two years of funding.Smaller grants will support innovative, interdisciplinary projects that also concern issues of global significance with a clear China focus. The projects may involve faculty from only a single School at Harvard, but preference will be given to cross-School collaborations. These grants will range from $50,000 to $100,000, also for up to two years.The proposals will be reviewed by a committee consisting of the president’s senior adviser for global strategy, the vice provost for international affairs, and the vice provost for research. Based on this review, a subset of proposals will be chosen to participate in the final selection. The president will decide on the final awards by the beginning of the 2016–17 academic year.
Loftus Road is the centre of attention for today’s big west London derby between QPR and Chelsea.Terry will be under the spotlight.Inevitably the focus will be on Anton Ferdinand and John Terry after allegations that the latter racially abused the R’s defender when the two sides met in October. Terry strongly denies doing so.QPR manager and former Chelsea player Mark Hughes has continually stated that Ferdinand is relaxed about facing Terry despite the furore surrounding the game.Last night Hughes again insisted he had no doubt that the player was in the right frame of mind for today’s FA Cup fourth round clash.Hughes said: “He’s very positive about the game and looking forward to it like the rest of us. He’s given me no sign that there’s anything weighing on him.”Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is also adamant that he has no qualms about selecting Terry, who is sure to get a hostile reception from the home fans.Villas-Boas’ side will be out to avenge their 1-0 defeat against their neighbours three months ago.Blues duo Didier Drogba and Jose Bosingwa were sent off in that game, yet Chelsea dominated much of it even with nine men – perhaps a sign of the task facing QPR this afternoon.Click here to follow West London Sport on Twitter for updates from Loftus Road from around 11am.
Sonjica said it was still being determined how much water agriculture, which accounts for about 62% of South Africa’s usage, was wasting, as well as how much water was being illegally extracted. “We need to quantify the impact of this,” she said. “We are engaging farmers so that we can have a mutual understanding of how to deal with the matter. This is not an easy process. It is a difficult situation, and there is a lot of hostility.” New legislation to establish the specialist “Green Scorpions” environmental crime-fighting unit, which will include the “Blue Scorpions”, a unit to tackle water-related crime, is almost complete, while environmental courts are expected to be established in South Africa within eight months. “We will ensure, through the ‘polluter pays’ principle, that behaviour such as pollution and illegal water use do not go unpunished.” “One of our big issues is to enforce compliance with the law,” Sonjica said. “The prospect of a single enforcement unit, from the possible integration of the ‘Blue Scorpions’ and ‘Green Scorpions’, will strengthen our resolve against wrongdoers. 24 June 2009 “We have completed studies in areas like Taung, and we are ready to re-commission the dam so it can be used to also benefit the community. We will do this throughout the country, where such needs exist,” she said. “Another point that we are looking at is how good water is being used by golf courses to sprinkle their lawns, while some communities do not have any water. Water needs to be used as effectively as possible in this country,” she said. This would increase the capacity of South Africa’s existing water resource infrastructure to provide water to strategic installations such as Eskom, Sasol and the mining sector, as well as for domestic needs. Infrastructure development Sonjica said that a very important part of water security was infrastructure development, and that the department would spend about R30-billion over the next five to eight years on the continued construction of 15 mega water resource infrastructure projects. ‘Blue Scorpions’ There was a real danger that areas of the country could run out of water in the next few years, Water and Environment Minister Buyelwa Sonjica told a media briefing in Cape Town this week. Focus on agriculture She added that the department was also looking closely at the issue of single-purpose dams, some of which were allocated within communities that had no ready access to water. South Africa is to embark on a number of programmes to conserve and diversify its water sources this year. These will including desalinating sea water in coastal areas, and increasing effluent recycling. She added that the government would intensify its public awareness programmes on the value of water, as well as its aims of curbing water losses by at least 20% by 2014. The minister said the government would ” engage with mining and industry to ensure they do something to recycle the water they use,” adding that her department would act “harshly and decisively against defaulters”. “We are a water scarce country, and our water resources are finite,” Sonjica warned. “We cannot afford an uncoordinated programme of blue-sky water-thirsty projects.” Source: BuaNews

I have my own guidelines and boundaries when I’m dealing with other people’s information – basically, if there’s any ambiguity, I ask permission before I share – but I know other people draw the line differently.Sometimes they’ll reveal a confidence but change a few details to protect identities. Or maybe they’d never do that, but they’ll readily tag an embarrassing party photo of you on Facebook.While some people lay down hard and fast rules about the new online etiquette, the reality is things are still a lot more fluid than many of us realize. You’ve just had lunch with a potential client; do you tweet that? You shot a hilarious video at the company picnic; do you upload it?

Tiger Woods, sticking to a conservative, patient game plan on a dried-out Olympic Club course, overcame a string of three straight bogeys to share the U.S. Open 2012 lead heading into weekend play in San Francisco.Woods shot even-par 70 yesterday to follow his opening- round 69 and is tied with fellow Americans Jim Furyk and David Toms at 1 under overall. Woods will be paired today with 2003 U.S. Open winner Furyk, his frequent partner in Ryder Cup and President’s Cup matches. The duo is scheduled to tee off at 3:05 p.m. local time.“I’m in a good spot,” Woods told reporters. “I’m looking forward to it.”For two days, Woods frequently has dismissed his driver in favor of long-flying irons on the majority of his tee shots to avoid thick rough lining the course’s fast-rolling fairways. The plan has worked so far. He leads all players with a driving accuracy of 75 percent, hitting the fairway 21 of 28 times.“It’s one thing to game plan, but you also have to execute the game plan,” Woods said. “I’ve done a pretty good job of that for the first two days.”Woods, who is seeking to end a four-year winless drought with his 15th major golf title, briefly held the lead by himself early in yesterday’s round when he sank a five-foot birdie putt on the par-3 third hole.One hole later, he began a stretch of three straight bogeys that left him at 1 over — three shots off the lead at one point. He had a three-putt bogey on the seventh, a hole that has surrendered 105 birdies over two days, when he knocked a six- foot birdie putt four feet past the hole and missed the comeback attempt.Tough Stretch“It was a tough little stretch,” Woods said.He recovered with birdies on the 10th and 13th holes to regain a share of the lead with Furyk and Toms, the 2001 PGA Championship winner.Toms, a 13-time winner on the U.S. PGA Tour, had missed the 36-hole cut in his previous two tournaments.“Just to be able to turn it around and play really solid golf after the way I’ve played has been nice,” Toms told reporters.Beau Hossler, a 17-year-old high school junior from Southern California, briefly held the tournament lead at 2 under yesterday before making three bogeys and a double bogey in a five-hole span.“I felt I was getting into a little bit of a zone,” Hossler, who has braces on his teeth, told reporters. “Unfortunately I kind of lost it coming in.”Source: businessweek.com
