Published: Aug. 14, 2020 Getty imagesAt the first-ever Micro-Internship Job Fair on July 20-23, over a hundred CU Boulder students applied for opportunities at companies in the finance, marketing, nonprofit and tech sectors, among others. With close to 20 micro-internships up for grabs, students from the Leeds School of Business, College of Engineering, CMCI and Arts & Sciences were eager to stand out from the pack.Postings included podcast development, media planning, social media, brand marketing, programming and more. The process was simple: Students apply for a job then interview the next day—hours later they find out whether they got the job or not.“We were really impressed by the applicants, and we’re excited to have two interns (instead of only one) join our Focus Group team and another intern join our Development team.”Donna Munip, CFO/COO at Metro Caring. Most companies at the fair were new to recruiting at CU. Callie Cavanaugh, founder and CEO of Nonna Eats, said, “This fair was awesome. It was really nice to connect with the students, and it was challenging to decide who is best for the job.”A win-win propositionWhen the economy took a pandemic-induced nosedive last spring, jobs and internships vanished, leaving CU students and new graduates scrambling for work. Meanwhile, businesses struggled with budget cuts, less staff and lost revenue, leaving them with less bandwidth for work that still needed to get done.To help students and the business community, Leeds School of Business quickly launched the Micro-Internship program: Students and graduates gain valuable business experience through short-term, paid, professional assignments, while companies get the immediate support they need.“Students get to dip their toes in the water and try out different jobs in the business world, and companies get projects off their to-do list that otherwise may not get completed,” explains Stan Hickory, manager of internships and workforce readiness at Leeds’ Office of Career Strategy.The Office of Career Strategy plans to hold the next virtual micro-internship recruiting event on October 19-21, 2020. In the meantime, any student or employer can participate in this ongoing program.For more information or to post a micro-internship, contact Stan Hickory at [email protected]###Tags:news Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via Google PlusShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail

Home Industry News Releases Frescobaldi Toscana Announces Re-Opening of Renowned Ristorante Frescobaldi in Florence’s Historic Piazza…Industry News ReleasesWine BusinessFrescobaldi Toscana Announces Re-Opening of Renowned Ristorante Frescobaldi in Florence’s Historic Piazza della SignoriaBy Press Release – June 17, 2020 214 0 ReddIt TAGSFrescobaldi ToscanaRistorante Frescobaldi Email Facebook Twitter AdvertisementGuests Welcome to Safely Enjoy Fine Tuscan Cuisine with Clear Views of Michelangelo’s DavidOn June 17th, amidst great fanfare and excitement, Ristorante Frescobaldi throws open its doors once again in Florence’s Piazza della Signoria, with its nonpareil venue providing an unparalleled “stage view” of one of the world’s most priceless sights: Michelangelo’s David. Truly the perfect spot for a gourmet moment right in the beating heart of a city that is one of the world’s most celebrated centres of culture, art, and fine wine and food. Just a few steps from the Galleria degli Uffizi and boasting a magnificent, open-air panoramic view of the historic Palazzo Vecchio, Ristorante Frescobaldi offers elegant comfort and classic Tuscan hospitality, in an utterly unique setting where guests may enjoy lunch and dinner accompanied by the masterpieces of Michelangelo, Donatello, and other Florentine geniuses, all of this the creative achievement of Spanish interior design genius Lazaro Design. A showcase where the absolute quality of Tuscan cuisine plays a refined duet with the wines of the Tenute Frescobaldi, Ristorante Frescobaldi has become the Florentines’ preferred meeting-place both for business encounters and more informal moments, as it has for tourists as well. All treasure it as a one-of-a-kind tribute to art—given its unique location–but to culinary art as well, with a menu that privileges the rich Tuscan gastronomic tradition. “All of us should greet this re-launching with the enthusiasm it deserves,” commented Diana Frescobaldi, Director of Dei Frescobaldi Retail & Restaurant. “The historic centre of Florence is always breath-taking, particularly in his period of the year, with the contrast between the blue of the sky and the smooth white of the marble statues, and Ristorante Frescobaldi is right there in the midst of it all. Our doors are open to welcome you for an exciting Tuscan adventure offered by our two new menus, “Amidst the Vineyards” and “On the Tuscan Coast,” each with our Frescobaldi wines. So come and enjoy with us the re-opening of our beloved Florence!” Florence thus can once again enjoy, while observing safety measures and social distancing, its famed classic cuisine and savour the artistic delights of Michelangelo’s David in Piazza della Signoria. I Ristorante Frescobaldi The extensive Frescobaldi family experience in the restaurant sector led in 2002 to the establishment of the first Ristorante & Wine Bar “Dei Frescobaldi,” in Florence. The menu showcases classic Tuscan dishes made from the highest-quality local ingredients, all paired with Frescobaldi wines, both in bottle and by the glass. 2015 saw the opening of a Ristorante Frescobaldi in the United Kingdom, thanks to the first joint venture between Frescobaldi and the Good Food Society, a project promoted by Levents Buyukugur, businessman Sanjay Nandi, and Diana Frescobaldi. Located in London’s Mayfair District, the restaurant is characterised by its warm, inviting atmosphere and offers a high-quality interpretation of Tuscany’s historic cuisine, paired with Frescobaldi wines. In 2017, the Ristorante in Florence became the Ristorante Frescobaldi Firenze and moved to a prestigious, new venue opposite the city’s Palazzo Vecchio. About Frescobaldi Toscana | en.frescobaldi.comFrescobaldi Toscana, the leading wine producer of Tuscany and one of the most historic and respected wine companies in the world, combines centuries of tradition with progressive winemaking techniques and practices.

Hon. Ronald Thwaites, is warning persons involved in providing fake educational credentials to immediately desist. Minister Thwaites’ warning follows a recent news report that Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) passes and fake degrees were being sold by persons engaged in an illegal operation. Speaking in an interview with JIS News, the Education Minister said persons involved in this scam could face criminal sanctions. “I want to tell everybody that to do that is a futile exercise because it’s eventually going to be found out and there will be serious consequences, probably criminal ones, for those who do it and those who receive it and try to pass them off,” Mr. Thwaites said. The Minister also encouraged persons thinking of involving themselves with the scam to channel their energies and resources in obtaining legitimate certification. “So, let us use the same energy and ingenuity and money that we deploy and try to falsify things to do them right the first time and to study hard and get the certification and pick yourself up if you didn’t manage the first time,” Mr. Thwaites said.

The Universal Service Fund (USF) has invested billions of dollars over the last nine years to provide Internet access to Jamaicans across the island.This was disclosed by USF Chairman, Bishop Wellesley Blair, who informed that the Fund has completed a total of 188 Internet community access points (CAP) throughout the country at a cost of $626 million.He noted that CAPs enable community members to use the Internet at minimal or no cost to them to facilitate research, bill payments, education, communication, business, marketing, and social networking.Bishop Blair, who was speaking at the official opening of the Caribbean Palm Estate Information Technology (IT) resource and skills training centre in South WestSt. Andrew on Wednesday (September 17), informed that the agency has approved financing for 236 community access points as at July 2014, of which 188 have been commissioned into service.“The USF continues to do wonders in Jamaica,” he said, pointing out that the agency has also completed some 11 special projects including those with the Jamaica Library Service, Jamaica Society for the Blind, Jamaica Constabulary Force, and the Commissioner’s Office.Mr. Blair said the USF is currently working on 65 new projects at different stages of completion, which are expected to cost the agency a total of $616 million.“We have also budgeted over $1.4 billion for the Tablets in Schools pilot project, which was recently rolled out,” he said.Additionally, he noted that the Islandwide Broadband Network project, in collaboration with LIME and FLOW, is also being implemented and is expected to provide islandwide coverage with initial connectivity in schools, libraries, and post offices.The USF, which was established in 2005, is financed through a levy of US$0.3 per minute on international calls to Jamaica, terminated to fixed lines and US$ $0.2 on calls to mobile lines.

Free Legal Answers surpasses the 10,000-client mark Nov 06, 2020 By Jim Ash Senior Editor Top Stories Florida’s online legal clinic, Free Legal Answers, has reached another milestone.According to the latest monthly report, Free Legal Answers surpassed the 10,000-client mark in October, serving 10,017 low and no-income Florida residents since it went live in May 2017.The COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t stopped volunteer attorneys from maintaining a 93% answer rate, even as it spurs more requests for help, said Francisco-Javier Digon-Greer, the Bar’s assistant director of programs.“We did have an increase in questions asked, 483 last month, and we had 524 questions asked in October,” he said. “We finally broke the 500 mark. Our next goal is to break the 600 mark.”Between March 1 and October 31, the program served nearly 3,000 clients, according to the report. During the same period, the program logged 3,487 questions and lawyers answered 3,323 of them, for a 95% answer rate, the report shows.The most frequently asked questions involve family law and landlord tenant matters.By the end of this year, when a federal ban on evictions expires, Digon-Greer expects Free Legal Answers and other legal clinics to be swamped with requests for help.“I anticipate for November we will have another 400 plus questions asked,” Digon-Greer said. “Based on this data, I truly anticipate that legal aid and other not-for-profit legal resources will be overwhelmed in the coming months.”Long before the COVID-19 pandemic forced the courts to switch to mostly remote proceedings, Free Legal Answers was showing Florida lawyers the benefits of digital practice.The program allows lawyers to answer questions anonymously any time of day or night, while earning credit toward their pro bono reporting requirements. Lawyers get to choose questions from various categories, and they learn just enough information about the client to avoid conflicts of interest.Clients are limited to questions about civil matters, must meet income restrictions, and must not be incarcerated. The current income restriction is 400% of the federal poverty rate, or $51,000 for an individual or $104,000 for a family of four.Over the life of the program, only a handful of clients have misrepresented their income, Digon-Greer said.
DALY CITY, Calif. – Poised and unflappable, Lydia Ko birdied the final hole for her third LPGA victory and first as a professional, holding off Stacy Lewis and Jenny Shin on Sunday in the inaugural Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic. It went down to the final shots, and the teen made a 6-foot birdie putt moments before Lewis knocked in a 4-footer of her own to finish one stroke back. ”The 18th hole I knew how loud the claps were and that I needed to get close and give myself a birdie chance,” Ko said. After beginning the day a stroke behind Lewis, Ko birdied three of her final four holes on the front nine on the way to a 3-under 69 and 12-under 276 total at Lake Merced. Ko earned $270,000, celebrating on the 18th green three days after celebrating her 17th birthday at the first tee box with the gallery singing ”Happy Birthday.” Ko will move up two spots to No. 2 in the next world ranking. She won the Canadian Women’s Open as an amateur the last two years and took the Swinging Skirts World Ladies Masters in December in Thailand in her second start as a professional. She has six victories in pro events, also winning in Australia and New Zealand. Lewis will head to her home state of Texas next week looking to build on a disappointing near miss in which she struggled all day with her short game. ”I knew she wasn’t going away. Lydia played great,” Lewis said. ”Every time I hit a shot in there, she answered.” Shin, still looking for her first tour win after her best finish this year, finished at 10-under 278 with a 68 over the 6,507-yard course. Playing together for the fourth straight day, neither Ko nor Lewis hit any dazzling shots early. Ko’s second of three bogeys came on the 417-yard, par-4 seventh in which her tee shot hit a tree and dropped in the rough. Lewis’ 10-foot birdie putt on No. 9 lipped out. Ko pulled into a first-place tie at 10 under as they made the turn on a picture-perfect spring day. ”The front nine, I did everything I wanted to do, the putts just didn’t go in,” Lewis said. ”I expected her to do exactly what she did today. … She hit every shot she needed to make from 13 on in.” The third-ranked Lewis had her sixth runner-up finish since winning the Women’s British Open in August. Michelle Wie, who won last week in her home state of Hawaii, tied for ninth at 2 under. Second-ranked Suzann Pettersen shot a 70 to finish at 3 over in her first event since last month after missing three tournaments with a back injury. Top-ranked Inbee Park tied for fourth at 6 under. There were two holes-in-one Sunday: Jimin Kang on the 164-yard third and Dewi Claire Schreefel with a 7-iron on the 157-yard 12th hole that earned her a $100,000 prize from China Trust Bank. The weather held for the final day after both fog and rain delays earlier in the tournament. This event was the LPGA’s first in the Bay Area since the 2010 CVS/pharmacy LPGA Challenge at Blackhawk in Danville.
