SMC promotes entrepreneurship

first_imgIn order to promote female entrepreneurship, Saint Mary’s College created the Women’s Entrepreneurial Initiative (WEI), a program designed to assist current female-owned and operated small businesses and create an interest in entrepreneurship among women, Susan Vance, senior project director for WEI and professor at the College said.In order to help execute the program, the College hired Martha Smith, a local business owner and program director for WEI. Smith has first-hand experience in entrepreneurship.Vance said she hopes the program will become a helpful resource for local businesses.Smith also wants to see the program reach out to female entrepreneurs.“[I hope the program will] provide a forum or a home for businesswomen to come and network and obtain resources and information to run a smoother operation if they already have a business,” Smith said.Smith said she also wanted to see WEI create an interest in owning a business within the College community.According to Vance, the College was awarded a $245,000 Small Business Administration two-year grant to support WEI in October 2009. Since that time the College has worked to aid local female business owners.Vance said the program has a two-part focus.“One part is externally, in the community, we want to be really viewed as the go-to place,” Vance said. “If you’re a woman and you want to start a small business or you want to launch a small business we want you to think about Saint Mary’s as the first place to go to.”Vance said the second part of the program was to focus on educating students about entrepreneurship.“We also are very interested in our Saint Mary’s women as well,” she said. “So what we want to do is engage the Saint Mary’s women with those women within the community, those women business owners. Also in addition to that we want to get students excited about starting their own businesses.”During the Spring 2010 semester, WEI offered a Small Business Consulting course where teams of students were paired with local female-owned companies. During the partnerships, students worked to create plans for better efficiency for the companies.According to Smith, one team of students was able to help a company create better efficiency with a computer program.Smith said Saint Mary’s senior Kathleen Mills was able to simplify a major computer issue at Nicholas J Salon and Spa in South Bend.Smith said Mills and her team of three other students were able to transform a computer task that originally took five hours into a 30 second job.“There was a success story, one of the students solved a problem for a local business owner. [The company] had asituation with the computers and it was taking them five hours to do a job,” Smith said.Smith owns two businesses of her own — a mini storage unit company and a textile company. Both businesses are in the Michiana area. According to Vance, Smith is a valuable asset to the program because she has the capabilities to assist in reaching out to the Latina women interested in entrepreneurship.“I can relate to other women business owners,” Smith said. “I sort of feel their pain and there’s a kinship.”Vance said the College has created a new course that will be supported by the grant. The New Ventures course will allow groups of students to create their own business. Vance will be teaching the course. Students will be responsible for creating their product or service, marketing it to the local community and running the company. Students will be required to take the course for two semesters, and at the end of the second semester they will create an exit strategy and close their company.The money that students have earned from their business will go towards paying of the start-up loan they received at the beginning of the course. After they have paid off their loan, students will donate the money to local charities.Vance said New Ventures will be offered for the first time during the Fall 2010 and Spring 2011 semesters.last_img read more

Soil test

first_imgHow much fertilizer should I put out in my garden? Do I need to add anything else? You don’t have to wonder about these things when there is a simple solution: a soil test. And University of Georgia Cooperative Extension can help.You can pick up small soil-test-sample bags from your county UGA Extension office or call to have them mailed to you. If you need any help, ask your local UGA Extension agent. They have publications and advice on the best way to take a soil sample.A small hand trowel and a bucket are ideal to collect the sample. Randomly select several sites in your garden to take the sample. Make sure you select enough sites to represent the soil in your garden.Use a trowel to dig a hole 8 to 12 inches deep. From the side of this hole, slice off a 1-inch section of soil from the ground surface to the bottom of the hole. Put this in your bucket.Take other samples like this at several places in your garden, and then thoroughly mix the sampled soil. Place the mixed sample in the soil-test-sample bag.Fill out the information on the bag, including your name, address and the county you live in. Select “routine soil test” as the test you want to run. For the crop, write in “vegetable garden.”Then take the sample to your county UGA Extension office. It will go from there to the soil test lab in Athens, Ga. The cost for a single sample starts at $8.The results of the soil test will show you how much fertilizer to use and whether your pH is low.The pH is a measure of soil acidity, which is important in how well plants can take up nutrients. Problems with low pH can be corrected with applications of lime. Old-timers used to call this “sweetening the soil.”So don’t guess, even if you’re good at it. Test your soil. Take the mystery out of feeding your plants.To find the UGA Extension office closest to you, check online at or call 1-800-ASK-UGA1. George BoyhanUniversity of Georgialast_img read more

Colombia Launches Operation to Close Narcotrafficking Routes

first_imgBy Myriam Ortega/Diálogo October 01, 2018 The Colombian Navy launched Operation Armor (Operación Armadura) to close narcotrafficking routes organized armed groups clashed over in the Pacific coast of Colombia. The strategy that kicked off in mid-August 2018 seeks to increase the Navy’s presence in Chocó department, near the Panamanian border. A group of 350 units of the Pacific Naval Force—consisting of elements of the 21st and 23rd Marine Battalions, the Second Marine Brigade, Bahía Solando Coast Guard Station, and troops of the Navy’s Unified Action Group for Personal Freedom (GAULA, in Spanish)—deployed to Juradó municipality in the Pacific coast of Chocó. In addition, the Navy mobilized three ships from the Caribbean Naval Force and receives air support from the Pacific Naval Aviation Group. “The border [with Panama] is a highly important strategic area for logistics support of any illegal group,” Navy Vice Admiral Orlando Romero Reyes, commander of the Pacific Naval Force, told Diálogo. “It can be used to smuggle weapons, drugs, and supplies. It’s also a hard-to-reach area for Navy and Armed Forces’ long-term stay.” Impact on the community The fight for territorial control among the various organized armed groups in Chocó’s coast and the dense Darién jungle on the border with Panama affected indigenous and Afro-descendant communities in the region. Turf wars between organized armed groups who want to take over strategic corridors previously controlled by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia increased since July, resulting in several injured citizens and the death of a minor. According to a report from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs published September 1st, the clashes affected 12 indigenous and Afro-Colombian communities from Bahía Solano and Juradó municipalities in Chocó department. The families are confined, have limited mobility and access to goods and services, or find themselves in temporary shelters, the report indicated. In early August, authorities held security councils in the municipalities of Juradó, Bahía Solano, and Nuquí, where communities reported the incidents. The meetings prompted an increased security presence to guarantee locals’ safety. “It encouraged us to create new initiatives, make some changes, and intensify efforts,” Vice Adm. Romero said. “That’s when we decided to launch Operation Armor.” Increased military presence To meet the goal, the Navy Marine Corps trained service members who deployed to Bahía Solano and Juradó as a permanent force, and assigned about 60 additional units to the Second Marine Brigade. Unified Navy command posts in Bahía Solano, Nuquí, and Juradó were also reactivated to conduct and oversee operations. “We have armed and unarmed efforts, armed efforts such as the significant increase in military presence to protect populations,” Navy Lieutenant Colonel José Amaya Barrera, commander of the 23rd Marine Battalion based in Bahía Solano, told Diálogo. “Land and maritime units also take part in the effort, with logistics support such as coast guard units that conduct maritime patrols, and escort fishermen and coastal vessels supplying townships and municipalities in our area of responsibility.” GAULA elements in Buenaventura, Valle del Cauca department, on the Pacific coast, support the operation by handling extortions reported in conflict areas. “There is a unit specialized in kidnapping and extortion, GAULA, which operates against these threats, such as human trafficking, and works on prevention with all our merchants under the campaign ‘I [do not pay, I] report,’” Lt. Col. Amaya said. Successful results The operation started strong and dealt a blow to the structure of the Clan del Golfo, neutralizing two leaders. On August 24th, authorities announced the capture of alias Ernesto, who controlled the group’s actions in the Pacific, and alias Platino, who led narcotrafficking operations. “During the last follow-up meeting [on September 11th], we analyzed the issue specifically in Juradó municipality, and Chocó’s ombudsman and attorney general recognized the advances in security,” Lt. Col. Amaya said. “We spent late night hours carrying out preventive work at piers and checking airstrips, so they would only be used for legal activities.” In addition to the arrests, authorities seized 1,454 kilograms of cocaine hydrochloride and 223 kg of marijuana during the operation. Authorities also confiscated logistics equipment, supplies, and speedboat fuel the organized armed groups used in their illegal operations. “Most importantly, Operation Armor will join the international strategy […] to prevent drugs from getting to Mexico and Central America,” Vice Adm. Romero said. “We agreed with the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, Ecuador, and Costa Rica to close that sea corridor.”last_img read more

How much money should you save every year?

first_imgJust about everyone knows how important it is to save and invest for retirement. After all, pensions are increasingly a thing of the past for most of us, and few of us are independently wealthy. Thus, more than ever, our future financial health is largely in our own hands. A critical question lingers in many people’s minds, though: just how much money to save every year. Here are three responses to that question.Brian Feroldi: I’m a passionate believer in pushing yourself hard to get your savings rate as high as possible, but I realize everyone is in a different financial situation. Despite that, with the exception of the most dire financial positions, I think everybody should at least contribute enough to their 401(k) or 403(b) account to maximize any available employer matching funds. Otherwise, you’re voluntarily saying “no” to free money.Many employers that offer a 401(k) plan have a matching program in place. While the rules vary from company to company, one common setup is that the employer matches half of the first 6% of an employee’s contribution. That means if an employee elects to contribute 6% of her salary to the plan, then the company will add in another 3%.You might think 3% is kind of puny, but since the typical American family earned $53,657 in 2014, a bump like that adds an extra $1,609 to the employee’s nest egg each year. That’s certainly not chump change! continue reading » 43SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Biden Faces Early Test With Immigration and Homeland Security After Trump

first_imgThe 23-member transition team announced by Mr. Biden last week indicates he will bolster the other responsibilities of the sprawling department. The team includes at least four former officials with Citizenship and Immigration Services, the legal immigration agency that has been mired in financial struggles. The leader of the team, Ur Jaddou, was a chief counsel for the agency under President Barack Obama and frequent critic of Mr. Trump’s policies. Mr. Warrick’s co-author, Caitlin Durkovich, is on Mr. Biden’s official transition team.The volunteer team has emphasized that change will come not from a drastic restructuring but from personnel. Of the 74 leadership positions at the Department of Homeland Security, 18 are either vacant or held by an acting official. Even those serving in acting capacities have had their appointments questioned by government watchdogs and the courts. As recently as Saturday, a federal judge said Chad F. Wolf, the acting secretary of homeland security, was not serving lawfully when he issued a memo in July suspending protections for immigrants brought to the United States as children.Two advisers involved in the planning meetings said the team was advising the incoming administration to steer clear of all officials who led the agencies overseeing immigration, even those who publicly resisted the White House’s efforts or publicly turned against Mr. Trump.They are “poisoned,” one adviser said.Some transition officials have rallied around Alejandro N. Mayorkas, a former homeland security deputy secretary and director of Citizenship and Immigration Services, to be the next secretary.Mr. Mayorkas’s supporters believe his background as a U.S. attorney for California and as a Cuban immigrant would appeal to both the law enforcement officials in the agency and the immigrant communities in the United States. They emphasized that a decision on the position had not yet been made.But reinstating officials who served under Mr. Obama, who was criticized as the “deporter in chief” and who expanded detentions at the border to respond to a surge of migrants, could cause consternation on the left.“My hope is people can see some of the errors of their ways,” Ms. Franco said, adding, “We’ll be vigilant.” – Advertisement – But undoing Mr. Trump’s immigration policies will initially dominate.Many of the Trump administration’s policies cannot be immediately undone, and Mr. Biden is likely to face an early test if migration to the southwestern border surges with Mr. Trump’s pending departure.That could be politically fraught, balancing the demands of the Democratic left for more lenient immigration policies, with the concerns of moderates who fear such issues cost the party dearly in House and Senate elections this month. Mr. Trump campaigned on a hard-line immigration agenda when he won the election in 2016 and the policies remain a central appeal to many who have supported Mr. Trump.- Advertisement – “Obviously my members were hoping President Trump was going to win, and they were hoping he was going to win because of what happens with border security,” Mr. Judd said. ““Let’s hope Biden proves us wrong. But we’ve already seen this movie and we expect a replay.” WASHINGTON — President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. has said that one of his first priorities will be rolling back his predecessor’s restrictive immigration policies. To do it, he may have to overhaul the Department of Homeland Security, which has been bent to President Trump’s will over the past four years.The department, created after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, has helped enforce some of Mr. Trump’s most divisive policies, like separating families at the border, banning travel from Muslim-majority countries and building his border wall. When the president tried to reframe his campaign around law and order this year, homeland security leaders rallied to the cause, deploying tactical officers to protect statues and confront protesters.- Advertisement – The Trump administration enacted more than 400 changes to tighten or choke off immigration, and while Mr. Biden can roll back the ones issued through executive orders or policy memorandums, rescinding policies that went through the full regulatory process will take time, according to Sarah Pierce, a policy analyst for the Migration Policy Institute.“On immigration, I expect them to stick to things that are high profile, very easy procedurally and come with minimal logistical burden,” Ms. Pierce said. Mr. Biden has also revived the longstanding Democratic goal of creating a path to citizenship for nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants, but without a Democratic Senate, that is likely impossible. (Control of the Senate rests on two Senate runoff races in Georgia in January.)An expected surge of migration to the southwestern border in the coming months will test Mr. Biden’s ability to balance the demands of the liberal and moderate wings of his party while preventing overflowing border facilities.“We will treat our immigrants with respect and give them due process, which they aren’t having under this administration,” said Representative Lucille Roybal-Allard, the chairwoman of the House appropriations subcommittee on homeland security who represented the Biden campaign in platform negotiations with Senator Bernie Sanders. “Will that be enough? Probably no.” – Advertisement – The pandemic is another immediate challenge.A threat assessment released by the Homeland Security Department in October concluded that the coronavirus had exacerbated “underlying economic and political conditions in the region” that have typically fueled migration.Mr. Biden has said he will look to revive a version of a program that allowed children and young adults to apply for refuge in their home country, rather than making the long, dangerous trip to the border to ask for asylum. He has also said he would bolster aid to Central America while deploying attachés from the Justice and Treasury Departments to combat corruption.But at the physical border, Mr. Biden’s plans center more so on what he will stop rather than what he will develop. That includes ending travel bans that restrict travel from 13 mostly Muslim and African countries and halting the Trump administration’s efforts to strip protections for about 700,000 young immigrants brought to the country as children.Mr. Biden also plans to raise the cap on refugee admissions to 125,000, impose a 100-day moratorium on deportations and direct Immigration and Customs Enforcement to focus on violent offenders. But it remains unclear how he will rebuild a deteriorated resettlement system to welcome that many immigrants or the specific details of his temporary halt on removing undocumented immigrants.The new administration will end the national emergency declaration that allowed Mr. Trump to divert billions of Pentagon dollars to the border wall, but an adviser involved in the transition said there were no plans to dismantle the 400 miles of wall already up.Other regulations will prove more challenging to unravel, like the maze of asylum restrictions imposed by the Trump administration and the public charge rule that allows green cards to be denied to immigrants who are deemed likely to use public assistance.Ms. Pierce said the new administration could begin the lengthy process of replacing the Trump regulations or, given that the public charge rule is still being litigated in court, revise that regulation in a settlement. After agents were videotaped hauling demonstrators off the streets of Portland, Ore., into unmarked vans, department critics called for systemic changes to the agency, or even its dismantlement. But the incoming administration is intent on keeping the department intact.Still, change is coming.Interviews with 16 current and former homeland security officials and advisers involved with Mr. Biden’s transition, and a review of his platform, suggest an agenda that aims to incorporate climate change in department policy, fill vacant posts and bolster responsibilities that Mr. Trump neglected, including disaster response and cybersecurity. “If it looks like they’re just kicking the can down the road, then people will be very angry,” said Marisa Franco, the executive director of Mijente, a Latino civil rights organization, who served on a task force that issued recommendations to the Biden campaign.Mr. Trump measured the success of his homeland security secretaries primarily by the progress of his border wall and the monthly totals of arrests made by his border agents. The group also features multiple former Obama administration officials who focused on cybersecurity, emergency response and transportation security. Mr. Trump had a team of only four transition advisers for homeland security.“If you look at what’s going on in the world now, in addition to border security and T.S.A. airline issues, you have a pandemic and an unprecedented hurricane season,” said Michael Chertoff, a homeland security secretary under President George W. Bush, referring to the Transportation Security Administration. Mr. Biden, he said, will take “a broader-based, more strategic approach.”A team composed mostly of volunteers separate from Mr. Biden’s official transition team has worked for weeks on that approach. Those volunteers, including Mr. Obama’s former director of the Domestic Policy Council, Cecilia Muñoz, and his former deputy homeland security adviser, Amy Pope, have focused on infusing climate change research into the decision-making of the next department leadership.While the agency will not become “the department of climate,” one adviser said, the new administration will use the research to shape natural disaster response and resilience to assist the Coast Guard as it patrols the Arctic. The next homeland security leaders could rely on climate science to predict migration from places like Guatemala, where coffee rust has disrupted the crops farmers rely on. “This is something that needs to be a long term priority for D.H.S.,” said Thomas S. Warrick, a former top counterterrorism official in the department and a co-author of a report this year that emphasized the department’s future roles defending against cyberthreats, pandemics and white supremacy. He has said he will stop “metering,” which restricts the number of migrants who can seek protection at border ports. It is unclear if he would pull out of agreements with Central American countries that allow the United States to divert migrants seeking protection back to the region. He would end Mr. Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy that has sent more than 60,000 migrants back to Mexico to await asylum hearings that have been suspended during the pandemic.Mr. Biden’s advisers have discussed rushing asylum officers and immigration judges to the border to process those families and others seeking protection.“The real question is scale. Can they be scaled up quickly enough if there is a surge to the border?” said one official involved in the transition.Mr. Biden has not committed to lifting a public health emergency rule that has essentially sealed the border to asylum seekers. The Trump administration has cited the risk of the pandemic to empower Border Patrol agents to rapidly turn migrants back to Mexico or their home countries without providing the chance to have their asylum claims heard. An adviser to the campaign said the administration planned on consulting with public health officials to discuss the policy.Biden advisers also acknowledged the need to bolster the capacity at the Department of Health and Human Services, which is responsible for sheltering migrant children traveling alone. That will take congressional approval.Mr. Biden has said he would cut funding used to detain migrants and instead rely more on programs that track migrants after they are released into the United States to make sure they appear at immigration court.Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, the Border Patrol’s union, said that would mean the return of “catch-and-release,” pejorative shorthand for releasing migrants from detention only for them to disappear. Mr. Trump has argued the policy encourages migration. The Presidential TransitionUpdated Nov. 14, 2020, 12:00 p.m. ETlast_img read more
