Council to push academics, philanthropy

first_imgThe Panhellenic Council is set to begin a push to increase its commitment to philanthropy and academics, as it ushers in the new executive board members for the 2010 calendar year.The newly elected board, led by incoming President Laura Redfern and Executive Vice President Hilary Veit, was announced Nov. 23 and will be initiated Dec. 10. Next semester, the council will start reviewing the budget and the amount of money that each programming committee is allotted with a focus on making everything more efficient, Redfern said.“We need to see where there are areas of the budget where funds are being underutilized so we can put them toward other activities,” Redfern said. “Once we recognize how much money we have, then we can expand our programming.”Sorority recruitment is costing less each year despite an increase in membership, Redfern said, which has prompted plans to redistribute funds to philanthropy, marketing and scholarship programming.This year the board, for the first time, offered five Greek scholarships, and the new board plans to add more or increase the amounts from $1,000 to $1,500.“The first year scholarships were a success,” Redfern said. “Our efforts are trying to improve to meet the caliber of Greeks that we had, because there is also [more] need during the recession and more girls who need help paying for their dues.”Ada Del Rosso, incoming vice president of finance, said the executive board should also focus on publicizing the scholarship opportunities and the financial aid options.“We may see fewer people joining sororities next year, but there are ways of getting help, scholarships and financial aid,” Del Rosso said. “I hope in the future we can emphasize the fact that it is a financial cost but it is worth it in the end.”Ayushi Gummadi, who was elected vice president of scholarship, said she also hopes to increase the importance that Greeks place on academics.“I want to encourage scholarship chairs to have a bigger say within each house, and increase chapter scholarship chairs’ involvement with the Panhellenic board,” Gummadi said.The new executive board also plans to increase the emphasis put on philanthropy events for students across the board, by increasing the number of service days held during the school year and moving from a national focus to more service for the local community.“I would like to see us do more for the surrounding community as well, something that would make it a safe philanthropy for students, do something on campus to raise money to help out some kind of local organization that helps out with crime reduction,” Redfern said.The new year also presents an opportunity to better utilize the budget beyond the major events that the council puts up, according to Tracy Moyers, the outgoing vice president of finance for Panhellenic.“I want to encourage the new board to utilize the budget more efficiently,” Moyers said. “I hope to see them make chapter dues and individual member dues more affordable, and also ease in more scholarships.”Moyers said she also hopes the new board will focus on increasing Greek unity on the Row and Panhellenic visibility on campus.“I really hope that they can get the whole Row more involved in things as a whole,” Moyers said. “A lot of times we do great things but they are disjointed with each individual chapter. To move forward, we need to bind together more and sort of have a united front.”The first major event Panhellenic will focus on for the upcoming semester is the annual spring Greek Gala, which will be held in March, Redfern said.last_img read more

Annenberg professor named Company Officer

first_imgJudy Johnson, an adjunct professor at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, was appointed this past week as the chief marketing and communications officer for Caruso Affiliated, a  Los Angeles-based company that is one of the largest privately held real estate companies in the United States.Johnson brings a wide range of industry experience to her new appointment. She previously served as president of operations west of Chicago of GolinHarris, a communications firm with an office in Los Angeles.“A 30-year veteran of the communications and marketing industry, Johnson was honored as PR Professional of the Year by the Public Relations Society of America Los Angeles Chapter in 2012,” said a press release from Caruso Affiliated.A California native, Johnson received her bachelor’s of arts degree in communications from the University of California, Los Angeles, where she wrote for the Daily Bruin newspaper and was also involved in the school’s radio station.“Although I’m a Bruin by education, I’m a Trojan by heart,” she said.Since 2012, Johnson has been an adjunct professor at the Annenberg school, where she teaches a master’s-level course in case studies. Johnson stressed the importance of teaching skills applicable to the professional world.“What I try to provide to students is really a couple of things,” Johnson said. “Number one is real-world examples of how companies and brands are changing their tactics to try to resonate with consumers in a way that is appropriate for those particular audiences. I also try to introduce them to very    high-level professionals, so they get real-world career advice and access to influencers.”Johnson noted that when she began her career in marketing, Los Angeles did not have many opportunities for communications and marketing careers.“I think that Los Angeles is an anomaly,” she said. “For such a large city, it is a difficult communications agency environment. Many of the international and national firms are very small in Los Angeles.”In recent years, however, the industry has evolved to encompass a wider variety of roles, including specializations in social media and other forms of digital content. Johnson stated that the Annenberg School has been capable of keeping up with new media as it continues to evolve.“Annenberg is always committed to evolving to educate students for the here and now,” she said. “I can tell you that some other nearby universities do not have the ability to change and adapt as quickly.”Johnson herself has also been adaptive in her different roles. In her previous work, she has developed brands for companies such as Amazon, Cold Stone Creamery and Disney among others. Her position at Caruso Affiliated, however, involves development and real estate. Caruso Affiliated “is best known for its first-class retail, dining and entertainment centers, such as The Grove and The Americana at Brand in Southern California,” according to the company’s press release, and was founded by USC alumnus and benefactor Rick J. Caruso.She noted that her work at Caruso Affiliated is not much different from her past experiences in marketing.“I look at it this way: Every company is a brand, and a brand is an amalgamation of all the experiences, of all the touchpoints,” she said. “Whether I was working for Toyota or Farmer John or Nestlé, it was to build engagement and build rich, positive experiences at the touchpoints that we were responsible for.”Johnson views her forthcoming work, which ranges from the redevelopment of downtown Pacific Palisades, Calif. to the planning of a five-star resort in Montecito as well as new luxury apartments in Los Angeles, with excitement.“We are in the real estate, retail and development business,” Johnson said. “Through innovation and continued hard work, we will hopefully get things to the next level as we expand our footprint here in Southern California and beyond.”last_img read more

Man dies in police custody in U.P., kin say he was tortured

first_imgA man detained in connection with a case of loot died in police custody after allegedly consuming poison, officials said on Tuesday. Satya Prakash Shukla (50) and his sons were detained by the police on Monday night in connection with loot of ₹26 lakh from a bank employee in Peeparpur area, Additional Superintendent of Police (Amethi) Dayaram said. Shukla allegedly consumed poison and was rushed to a hospital in Sultanpur, where he died during treatment, he said. However, family members of Shukla alleged that he was tortured by the police and killed in custody. Meanwhile, on the directives of Superintendent of Police, Sultanpur, Himanshu Kumar, a case was registered at Kotwali police station against unknown police personnel under various sections of the IPC. The Amethi ASP, however, rubbished as “baseless” the allegations of torturing Shukla and giving him poison. “When police had gone to question the accused in the case pertaining to loot of ₹26 lakh, he went inside his house and consumed poison,” he said. A probe is underway in the matter.Akhilesh tweet Reacting to the incident, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav tweeted, “The allegations of the family members of Satya Prakash Shukla that he was administered third degree torture should be probed in an impartial manner. Otherwise, the remaining trust of the people in the BJP government will also vanish.”last_img read more

Yuvraj included in India’s T20 World Cup squad

first_imgYuvraj Singh on Friday was included in the Indian cricket team for the World Twenty 20 Championship in Sri Lanka as well as the two T20s against New Zealand in September, within months of his recovery from a rare germ cell cancer.In another interesting pick, senior off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has also been recalled to the team after a gap of one year along with veteran seamer Lakshmipathy Balaji, who makes a comeback after three years.Yuvraj’s selection was on the cards after he was declared fit by the physio and trainer at the National Cricket Academy where he had been camping for the past one month.”Yuvraj has been declared fit, so he makes a comeback.And all of us know, if he gets going, he can singlehandedly win matches,” chairman of selectors Krishnamachari Srikkanth told reporters after the meeting.The two T20 Internationals against New Zealand, slated for the first week of September, will be a test for Yuvraj who underwent chemotherapy in the US earlier this year.Ever since his diagnosis, the left-hander has remained out of action since the second Test match against West Indies played from November 14-17 in Kolkata.The selection committee took around three and half hours to decide on the two squads — the bone of contention being the selection of Yuvraj and Harbhajan.According to sources, Yuvraj’s selection wasn’t exactly unanimous as couple of selection committee members were apprehensive about picking him for the T20 World Cup starting September 18 as he has not played a single competitive match for the past nine months.advertisementHowever, his class and experience in the shortest format was the logic behind his selection apart from the popular sentiment to bring him back which definitely played a part.Harbhajan’s selection was simply based on his past record as India’s spin department is pretty thin on experience.Harbhajan last played for India against England at Trent Bridge last July-August before he flew back with an injury and has not been considered for selection since then.The surprise inclusion has to be bowler Piyush Chawla, who has done precious little in the domestic season gone by but dearth of quality leg-break bowlers was the reason behind the player getting the nod ahead of the likes of Rahul Sharma and Amit Mishra.The inclusion of Balaji is based on his impressive performance for Kolkata Knight Riders in the last two editions of the Indian Premier League. The 30-year-old’s ability to bowl effective slower deliveries at the death has led to his selection over Umesh Yadav.The only tearaway pacer in the squad is Ashok Dinda while the other two seamers will be the experienced duo of Zaheer Khan and Irfan Pathan.The squad consists of eight players – Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Irfan Pathan, Rohit Sharma, Piyush Chawla and Harbhajan Singh – who were a part of India’s historic T20 triumph in South Aftica five years back.The Indian Squad for T20 World Cup and T20s against New Zealand: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Manoj Tiwary, Rohit Sharma, Irfan Pathan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, Lakshmipathy Balaji, Piyush Chawla, Harbhajan Singh, Ashok Dinda.last_img read more
