Iovine and Young Academy to offer four new minors

By

first_imgIovine and Young Academy’s new minors will allow more non-majors to explore Iovine and Young courses. (Tucker Judkins | Daily Trojan)USC’s Iovine and Young Academy announced four new minors to be introduced in Spring 2019. Students will have the option of taking classes geared towards a product design, disruptive innovation, designing for experience or multimedia for designers and entrepreneurs minor. “[These minors] represent key elements of the Academy’s uniquely integrative Bachelor of Science curriculum,” Iovine and Young Academy Dean Erica Muhl wrote in an email to the Daily Trojan. “We are extremely pleased to finally be able to offer them to all majors at USC.”While Iovine and Young has offered “The Practice of Design” and “The Art of Japan’s Golden Age of Animation” as general education courses for non-majors, the introduction of these four new minors give USC students the opportunity to take more classes in the Academy. “The addition of minors has also been planned from the beginning, and we have been designing and launching portions of the necessary coursework each semester for several years now,” Muhl wrote.  The product design minor gives students the opportunity to learn about the creation of consumer goods and services and the application of acquired knowledge and skills in the areas of user research, according to the IYA website. The multimedia for designers and entrepreneurs minor offers students the skills and knowledge necessary to become entrepreneurs, content creators and experienced designers through a developed understanding of multimedia arts. “It is our hope that the minors will prove even more useful to students by providing not just greater access to Academy coursework, but also to the maker and ideation spaces coming in Iovine and Young Hall in Fall 2019,” Muhl wrote.Jean Daniel LeRoy, a sophomore in the Academy, said he recommends that students consider pursuing the new minors.“[It is] a hands on curriculum, which is a big reason why I joined the Academy, as well,” he said.Those who choose to take classes for a disruptive innovation minor will learn about inventions that have radically changed society. These programs will allow students to cultivate an understanding of techniques and methodologies of innovators, according to the Academy’s site.  The designing for experiences minor introduces the field of interaction design and universal design theory to students. The minor is intended for students who wish to specialize in data visualization, app design and social media development. “[The minors] are an opportunity for any students to get active. There’s not a lot of awareness of what it is like inside of the Academy,” LeRoy said. “This program will help make it more accessible to everyone else.” To apply for the minors, students must complete a minor prerequisite courses with a minimum of a B-minus grade and be in good academic standing at the University. The Academy notes, however, that students have the ability to petition to substitute classes taken in another USC college to cover the prerequisite requirement.last_img read more

Dover Darwin Defenders Provide After-Game Impressions

By

first_imgLike a TV commentator with the MVPs in the locker room after a big game, Geoff Brumfiel in Nature1 interviewed two pro-evolution witnesses who testified in the Dover trial.  Brumfiel asked Ken Miller and Kevin Padian what it was like, what they had to do to get ready, how the lawyers treated them, and what they learned from the experience.  Neither had any problems with the opposing lawyers or the judge, but Miller (Brown U) and Padian (NCSE) both told why they thought it was important to testify at this particular trial in Pennsylvania.Padian:  It’s an opportunity when it really counts.  One person can’t be everywhere around the country talking to every school board and every parent group.  But this is a case where, ultimately, these decisions are going to clarify things in a formal setting.Miller:  It is the right thing to do.  The battle in Dover is just one example of local battles for scientific education all over the country.  If people in the scientific community turn their backs on people in the front lines, then ultimately the cause of science in public education is doomed.(Bold added in all quotations.)Nature2 also provided sample quotes from Miller’s and Padian’s testimonies in the courtroom.  These are discussed in the commentary that follows.1Geoff Brumfiel, “Expert witness: the scientists who testified against intelligent design,” Nature 438, 11 (3 November 2005) | doi: 10.1038/438011a.2Box 1, Nature 438, 11 (3 November 2005) | doi: 10.1038/438011a.This entry should clear up any lingering doubts whether Nature is a Darwin propaganda outlet.  Not only did they ignore the testimony of the other side completely, they treated these hard-core Darwin defenders like the home team.  Like a slobbering toady, Brumfiel sat at their knees for news, accepting anything they said as gospel truth but asking no hard questions.  So much for fair and balanced reporting in the journals.  Let’s examine their sample quotes from the Dover testimony:Miller:  If you invoke a non-natural cause, a spirit force or something like that in your research and I decide to test it, I have no way to test it.  I can’t order that from a biological supply house, I can’t grow it in my laboratory.  And that means that your explanations in that respect, even if they were correct, were not something I could test or replicate, and therefore they really wouldn’t be part of science.Great.  I’d like to order some Convergent Evolution, a few pieces of Sexual Selection, some Game Theory and a few stocking stuffers of Just-So Stories for my kids in science class.  Clever, Ken, but we’re up to your chicanery.  Intelligence is not always non-natural.  You are intelligent, aren’t you?  When a scientist publishes fraudulent work or falsifies evidence, does this mean we have to explain his actions in terms of physical laws and chemical reactions, or parts we can order from Carolina Biological Supply House?  Does your criterion mean we can no longer look for murderers as suspects when we find a body on the sidewalk, or lost tribes to explain archaeological artifacts?  What about the stone tools Morwood found in that Indonesian cave?  Did they just emerge from the cave floor by erosion?  Scientists test intelligent causes all the time.  SETI is built on the assumption that intelligent causes can be distinguished from “natural” causes.  Unless you are prepared to scratch archaeology, cryptology, intellectual property law, anthropology, paleoanthropology, criminology, sociology and SETI off the list of legitimate scientific investigations, better loosen up.  ID revolves around the concept of information.  Information is just as real as physics and chemistry, and yes, you can buy information, and sell it, too.  You can even grow information – isn’t that what we call teaching, or the process of science itself?  It didn’t escape our notice that you said even if [design explanations] were correct… they wouldn’t be part of science.  Well, then, kiss the search for truth good-bye as you wander forever in Darwin Storybookland.Padian:  We’ll be the first people to admit that science doesn’t know everything and can’t know everything.  But on the other hand, we would like a fair and accurate representation of what we do know.And your point is? Padian:  It worries me that students would be told that they have to make a conclusion in advance of all the evidence that you can’t get from A to B, essentially, by natural means.Your Honor, allow me to display Exhibit A, the Explanatory Filter described by William Dembski, PhD mathematician and author of The Design Inference.  Mr. Padian, where on the diagram is the design inference made?  Right, at the very bottom, after the chance and natural law explanations have been exhausted.  In other words, a design inference is a last resort – not a first resort.  No scientist is asked to make a design conclusion in advance, as you allege.  The ID strategy is very similar to existing scientific endeavors in that regard: explanations should first examine whether chance and natural law can account for the phenomenon under investigation.  They should be rigorous and exhaustive and not jump to design conclusions prematurely.  The criterion of specified complexity is an objective, mathematical measure for eliminating chance by small probabilities before making a design inference.  This eliminates the God-of-the-gaps problem that anti-ID people bring up so often.  Trouble is, you want to short-circuit this last step in the flowchart and create an infinite loop.  If no chance or natural-law explanation is found, you want to go to top and start over, then over, then over again, ad infinitum.    Your Honor, allow me to display Exhibit B [a quote by Richard Lewontin in the Baloney Detector].  This statement proves that Mr. Padian and his Darwinist colleagues are the ones requiring a conclusion in advance.  By ruling out the design inference, they want scientists to go round and round on the merry-go-round that will never find the answer even if, as his partner Miller said, the design explanation is correct.  As we know from over a century of Darwinian attempts at explanations, this spins off an endless train of speculative scenarios that become more improbable with the revising (see 10/26/2005 example) as the evidence for biological design mounts (see next story, for instance).    Readers of Nature will never hear this kind of cross-examination from the Darwin Party mouthpiece journals.  Thankfully, there are other sources that don’t mind getting the story from both teams.  You’re reading one of them.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

How Social Media Has Complicated Work Relationships

By

first_imgTags:#business#Facebook#LinkedIn#Relationships#social media#social networking#social networks Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoscenter_img Related Posts dan schawbel Dan Schawbel is a Gen Y career and workplace expert, the Founder of Millennial Branding and the author of the new book, Promote Yourself: The New Rules For Career Success (St. Martin’s Press).In the past, our personal and professional relationships were separated by office walls. Now, through the widespread adoption of social media, they aren’t.Today, the relationship between employees and their managers has become more complicated because everyone is online, communicating all of the time. All workers have to consider their social-network relationships as they develop their careers and network at the office. If you don’t accept your coworker’s friend request they may take offense and you might burn bridges with them. If your profile is private, you might be perceived as hiding something from the people you work with. If you share an explicit picture on your Facebook wall and your manager sees it, that could hurt your credibility at work, even though you think it shouldn’t.Millennials RisingIn a new study in partnership with American Express, we found that millennial employees—those who reached young adulthood around the turn of the millennium—are more comfortable being friends with managers on social and professional networks than their managers are.When it comes to Facebook, only 14% of managers and 24% of employees are either very comfortable or extremely comfortable being friends with each other. As for LinkedIn, 32% of employees and 24% of their managers are either very comfortable or extremely comfortable being connected.There is a generational gap when it comes to the workplace. Gen X and Boomers are more hesitant to be connected to younger workers. They don’t want to interfere in their colleagues’ personal lives and they are more private in their own life, resisting the temptation of posting everything online.Some managers are more inclined to connect with their employees on LinkedIn over Facebook. LinkedIn is still viewed as a professional network, while Facebook is seen as a social one.“For me, Facebook, is for my friends and family so I am pretty selective with who is a part of that social network,” says Mike Proulx, senior vice president of digital strategy at Hill Holliday.Changing ProfilesNaturally, people will be more open and share more personal parts of their lives if they have reservations about who they accept as a friend online. While you may choose to make your profile private and only accept family and friends, that could change over time.We did a study last year of four million Facebook profiles and found that the average millennial has nearly 700 regular friends and 16 coworker friends. As the strength of your relationships change over time and people change jobs, you’re likely to end up connected to a coworker at some point in your career.While Proulx is more reserved, other managers are more open and encourage social network connections with employees. Scott Gulbransen, director of social business strategy at H&R Block, views coworker connections as a great way to develop stronger relationships with employees.“Even though we may have different views and interests, it allows them to see more of the human side of their boss—that’s a good thing,” says Gulbransen.When you have insight into your manager’s social life, you might be able to bridge new connections and start new conversations that you wouldn’t have brought up in the past. They can also learn more about you, your interests and how you live your life.A lot of managers that I speak to are open to online connections if there’s trust between both parties. If there’s enough trust, people won’t judge each other as harshly and are more comfortable with opening up.“If the employee and I are genuinely friends and want to have this connection on a social platform then I don’t have an issue with it,” says Steve Fogarty, senior manager of strategic programs at Adidas.Employees should strive to be friends with their managers because managers hold the keys to unlock new opportunities and have the power to promote.While some managers and employees are trying to separate both their personal and professional lives now, the future is open so we won’t be able to live two different lives—they will be one and the same. By being smart about what you post online and how you present yourself today, you will be set up for future success.5last_img read more
