Oxford publishes sample interview materials

first_imgA collection of sample interview questions has been released by Oxford University in advance of this year’s application deadline. Candidates applying for Law could be asked to consider the legality of running a red light in the middle of the night, whilst budding linguists might debate the effects of reading a literary work in translation. Alongside the sample interview questions, applicants can view responses fielded by current Oxford tutors. Cecile Fabre, Senior Research Fellow at All Souls College, offered her expectations for candidates discussing the philosophy of air travel: “We are not trying to get them to guess or arrive at the ‘right’ answer. “Rather, the interview is about the candidate’s ability to think critically, to deal with counter-examples to the views they put forward, and to draw distinctions between important concepts.”Students who are invited to interview for Medicine could find themselves being asked to rank these countries – Bangladesh, Japan, South Africa and the UK – by their crude mortality. Tara Madsen, a first year medical student, told Cherwell: “It would be unfair if they only gave a place to people who got it right – but they don’t do that.“They give a place to people who give a sensible suggestion, and can explain their reasoning and think on their feet.”The Oxford interview, a major part of the admissions process, has long been a source of nerves for prospective students. Dr Samina Khan, Director of Admissions and Outreach, explains that: “We know there are still misunderstandings about the Oxford interview, so we put as much information out there as possible to allow students to see the reality of the process.”Emily Wilder, a first year Modern Languages student told Cherwell: “The notion of interviews is scary, but the people are not. “The tutors I know did and do seem more interested in your engagement with the subject than with which school you went to.”last_img read more

ICC World Cup Need to play every game in World Cup like we are playing India: Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed

first_img New Delhi: The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is just over six weeks away but all eyes will be on India vs Pakistan clash on June 16 in Manchester. The rivalry between India and Pakistan is legendary in the World Cup with India winning all six encounters against Pakistan starting from the 1992 World Cup clash in Sydney. Heading into the clash, India is expected to continue their dominance against a Pakistan side struggling for confidence after they were whitewashed 5-0 at home against Australia last month. However, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed has stated that the team must approach every game in the World Cup like they are playing India.“The match against India is very important in many ways but it is one match and we need to play all our remaining matches in the tournament like we are playing against India,” Sarfaraz said in an interview to a Pakistan channel. highlights In order to prepare for the World Cup, Pakistan will be playing five ODIs and a Twenty20 International against England starting on May 5. The team is currently in Kent where they will use the period to acclimatize to the conditions. Mohammad Amir, who starred in Pakistan’s ICC Champions Trophy 2017 clash against India in the final, has not been named in the 15-man squad but is in the side for the England series.Sarfaraz said that he was under no pressure as captain before the mega-event. “Where I bat we will decide as the matches go but there is complete unanimity between me and Mickey Arthur and the selection committee over the players selected,” he said when asked if he had been consulted in the finalisation of the squad. Sarfaraz said his team had the talent and depth to surprise any team but it was important for players to gain momentum and maintain it in the tournament as every team would have to play nine games to qualify for the knockout stage.Sarfaraz was happy that other teams had been given the favourites tag in the World Cup. “It is good for us as it means there will be more pressure on the teams given the favourite tag and it also means that we can play as underdogs that is when we give our best and perform.” For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

Saganism Lives On in Futility

first_img(Visited 523 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Carl Sagan’s daughter picks up where her dad left off, adding an unexpected twist for creatures on a pale blue dot.Space.com reviewed Sasha Sagan’s new book, For Small Creatures Such As We. Basically, Carl Sagan’s daughter thinks that since humans evolved to be ritualistic, we should come up with some secular rituals that atheists can enjoy during their brief, meaningless lives on a speck orbiting a speck in a speckless universe. Reviewer Chelsea Gohd sums it up in her subtitle: “People are born and people die. We’ve all got to get through it one way or another.”“For Small Creatures Such as We” (G.P Putnam’s Sons, 2019), Sagan’s new book pays homage to her late father, the astronomer and science communicator Carl Sagan (whose famous quote from “Contact” inspired the title of the book), and her mother, “Cosmos” co-writer Ann Druyan, while finding traditions and inspiration in the natural world.After becoming a mother, Sagan, who is nonreligious but who has a Jewish background and a husband with a Christian background, realized the importance of having rituals with her own family. But, being secular, she didn’t want to draw on religion to inform their family traditions. Instead, as she explores in the book, Sagan looks to the beauty and “magic” of nature, on our planet and out in the cosmos, to inspire ritual and togetherness in her home.Sasha Sagan advises setting up “secular traditions” that might kindle “wonderment” for families. Perhaps the evolved humans, lost in space, going nowhere, could gain meaning through feelings of “awe” at the vastness of space, and also at human accomplishments, like the success of the solar sail mission. She hopes people might find inspiration in her father and mother’s famous works and memoirs. But can atheists really conjure up awe out of materialism?A separate post on Space.com offers an excerpt from Sasha Sagan’s book. This quote picks up after her correct argument that wishing something to be true does not make it true.So if a person is interested in testing their preconceptions, in discovering how things really are and why, how does one go about that? My parents taught me that the scientific method is designed for precisely this job. My father was a scientist. He was the astronomer and educator Carl Sagan. Science wasn’t just his occupation, it was the source of his worldview, his philosophy, his guiding principles. He and my mom, writer and producer Ann Druyan, taught me that belief requires evidence. They taught me that science wasn’t just a set of facts to be compared and contrasted with other philosophies but a way of testing ideas to see which ones stand up to scrutiny. They taught me that what scientists think today might be disproven tomorrow, and that’s wonderful, because that’s the pathway to a better, deeper understanding.If atheism were disproven tomorrow to her satisfaction, would she find that wonderful? Would she accept theism as the pathway to a better, deeper understanding? Would she be willing to apply the scientific method to secular rituals? Perhaps she could seek evidence that the Stuff Happens Law generates feelings of awe and wonderment. “People are born and people die.” Wow! Oh, what a feeling!The Apostle Paul preached that without Christ’s resurrection—which brings hope that we can be raised like Him—life would be meaningless. “If the dead are not raised, “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die” (I Corinthians 15:32). It also means that the worst tyrants and dictators got away with their crimes. It means that our conjured-up attempts at pleasure or wonderment are futile. Our innate sense of justice in the conscience is appalled at that conclusion. Why even try to do right, if that is our fate?Illustra Media illustrated Sagan’s worldview in his own words in this short film, David and the Pale Blue Dot, posted on TheJohn1010Project.com, one of the episodes in their full-length DVD The Call of the Cosmos:The only way that awe can be genuine is if a God of wonders created this universe, the Earth and life for a good purpose. Sagan was a die-hard Darwinist. “Evolution is a fact!” he declared in Cosmos, after sharing an example of artificial selection. “It really happened!” Yes, “stuff happens.” There is a lot of evidence for that. But understanding does not happen by chance. Understanding takes a mind. So does the Scientific Method. The very things that Sagan relied on for his worldview are inaccessible from the Stuff Happens Law he espoused. By trying to see through everything with science, he saw nothing. C. S. Lewis explains why the Scientific Method cannot be applied to everything:Up to that point, the kind of explanation which explains things away may give us something, though at a heavy cost. But you cannot go on explaining away’ for ever: you will find that you have explained explanation itself away. You cannot go on seeing through things for ever. The whole point of seeing through something is to see something through it. It is good that the window should be transparent, because the street or garden beyond it is opaque. How if you saw through the garden, too? It is no use trying to ‘see through’ first principles. If you see through everything, then everything is transparent. But a wholly transparent world is an invisible world. To ‘see through’ all things is the same as not to see. (The Abolition of Man, last paragraph)Contrast Sagan’s despairing view of human life to one that recognizes beauty as the work of a loving Creator God. That’s where us tiny humans in a pale blue dot can rejoice in true awe, because beauty has a purpose, to draw us to the Creator. Darwin admitted, “Beauty for its own sake… would be fatal to my theory.” Let Illustra Media show, in its short film Beauty, Darwin and Design, how we are surrounded by a superabundance of beauty that not only is fatal to Darwinism, but lifts us to genuine awe, hope and meaning.

Stanley Subramoney, chair of the Nepad Business Foundation, is to lead the initiative.“South Africa is at a critical economic juncture, with slow growth, high unemployment and real risk of a sovereign debt downgrade,” Subramoney said in a statement on Wednesday, before the Budget was tabled.“We are confident that the Minister of Finance will today announce bold steps to boost growth and strengthen public finances – and we are committed to working actively and urgently with government and labour to support these steps.”The business grouping plans three key interventions in the economy:Preventing a ratings downgrade for South AfricaBoosting the growth of small businessesDriving investment projects in important sectorsThe business leaders driving the initiative include:Sim Tshabalala, Standard Bank joint CEODan Matjila, CEO of the Public Investment CorporationAdrian Gore, founder and CEO of DiscoveryBrian Joffe, CEO of the Bidvest GroupMike Brown, CEO of the Nedbank GroupRalph Mupita, CEO of Old Mutual Emerging MarketsVassi Naidoo, chair of Nedbank“We remain committed to the National Development Plan, which provides a compelling vision and framework for growth, and urge all social partners to focus on it as the vision guiding implementation” Naidoo said.“Today South African business goes further and announces three specific initiatives to help translate the NDP into faster growth, new jobs, and greater economic inclusion.”Preventing a ratings downgradeBusiness efforts to prevent international ratings agencies from downgrading South Africa to junk status will be led by Mike Brown of Nedbank and Old Mutual’s Ralph Mupita.“Business understands that the government will play its part in avoiding the severe long-term costs to our country and all its people that a downgrade would create,” Brown and Mupita said in the statement.“As we have indicated to [Gordhan], we accept that business must play its part and we accept that there could be changes to the tax regime as part of a broader package of fiscal consolidation.”As part of this, the grouping has committed to do more by:Bringing private sector expertise to the boards of state-owned enterprises, helping to reduce the drain these have on state coffers and putting them in a position to contribute to economic growthInvesting in public-private investment partnerships, particularly in the energy sectorPlaying an active role in removing regulatory blockages to investment and to starting and growing a businessJoining increased efforts to combat corruptionEmpowering entrepreneurs and SMEsConvened by Adrian Gore of Discovery and Bidvest’s Brian Joffe, this initiative aims to mentor and grow small businesses with big potential.“If South Africa is to create jobs in the numbers we need, while accelerating economic transformation and reducing inequality, we must give our SMEs a major boost – in skills, capital, and access to export markets,” the convenors said.“Business is ready to invest money and skills to accelerate the development of high-potential SMEs and, together with government, will support a single vehicle which will co-invest with existing successful enterprise development funds run by the private sector.”Key investment in targeted sectorsStandard Bank’s Sim Tshabalala and Dan Matjila of the Public Investment Corporation said business would work with the government to identify priority economic sectors and enterprises – “both those made vulnerable during current market turbulence, and those that can unlock new growth”.For each sector selected, business will contribute private sector expertise to help create an urgent, detailed plan to remove barriers to growth, protect existing jobs, and drive inclusive growth as fast as possible.Mabuza said specific details of the three initiatives would be announced soon.“South African business believes passionately in our country,” he said. “Now is the time to tackle our problems together, reinvigorate our economy, and show the world – once more – the greatness South Africans are capable of.”last_img read more

Young farmers should keep balance sheet, credit report top of mind

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Joel Penhorwood and Kolt BuchenrothFinances are on the mind of all producers, but even more so for those just getting started. At the recent Young Ag Professional’s Winter Leadership Experience, Jessica Draganic with Heartland Bank said credit awareness should be high on the priority list.“We really promote people making sure they are aware of their credit score and their credit situation. A good balance sheet is the most important thing in our opinion, especially doing an end of year balance sheet where you’re looking from year-to-year on your operation or even your personal financial situation. It’s so important for any banker or lender that you’re working with,” Draganic said. “Making sure that you are aware of a business plan or what you want to do with your operation — what you see now in the current situation, in five years and 10 years — and how do you get to that point. Organizing your thoughts and writing down your goals is so important.”Draganic advised focusing on three main business relationships when thinking about the future of the farm.“An attorney that specializes in agriculture and understands your operation,” she said, noting their importance when it comes to succession planning, drawing up purchase orders to buy the farm next door, and much more. “Having a relationship with a good ag accountant is very important. Having a relationship with a banker that understands your operation that is able to be an advocate for you and be able to present your story to their bank and be able to have your back.”Draganic reiterated that many of today’s farm decisions rely on the oft overlooked credit score, especially for the young farmer.“Credit scores are the foundation and the first piece we look at. It’s something that’s measurable giving your financial history for a bank, especially with a new relationship. People want to know what their score is — they want to make sure they’ve had it pulled and they’re aware of what is showing up on their credit scores; 70% of everybody has mistakes.  So make sure if you do have those, that you’re working through those, correcting those, so then when you do have the opportunity to buy something that you can and you get your score up.”She encourages young and beginning farmers to ask themselves questions and constantly revisit their tax situation, balance sheet updates, and budget plans among other items.last_img read more

10 months agoUNCOVERED: The 3-step process for Liverpool to make new signings

first_imgUNCOVERED: The 3-step process for Liverpool to make new signingsby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool’s three-step approach to making new signings has been revealed.The Times has detailed how different members of Liverpool’s management structure work together to bring in new additions.The three-step policy is as follows:Firstly, a footballer cannot be signed unless he is wanted by the manager.Secondly, the player must also have the blessing of FSG. The owners have the right to say no and stop all plans to sign the player.For example, if manager Jurgen Klopp wanted to bring in an older striker in for £40 million, but FSG did not want to part ways with that kind of cash for a player whose career could soon be over, then the choice would rest with them.Thirdly, the transfer must be in keeping with the latest trends of the transfer market. Spotting opportunities and assessing availability should set guidelines for purchasing and selling. TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
