first_imgSt Anne’s College alumna Ms Helen King is to be its next principal, after her lifelong career in the police service.Ms King was selected by the college’s Governing Body, after applications and interviews that included senior members of the college and the JCR President, Pranay Shah.Shah told Cherwell, “Having interviewed the shortlisted candidates, I can truly say I am very glad Helen King is the new Principal of St Anne’s.Having attended, and stayed in touch with, the College she truly understands its ethos and principles, and it is personified in her down to earth and genuine character.I believe she will be a fantastic leader for us and take St Anne’s forward in a great direction over the upcoming years.”Helen King studied PPE at St Anne’s, graduated in 1986 and joined the Police Graduate Entry Scheme, before a hugely successful career in the police service that included a Deputy Chief Constable role and Queen’s Police Medal in 2011.Helen joined the Metropolitan Police Service as Assistant Commissioner for Territorial Policing in June 2014 with oversight of policing in London’s 32 Boroughs, and was responsible for Roads Policing and Criminal Justice.  Since April 2016, she has held the position of Assistant Commissioner for Professionalism which includes responsibility for Training and Professional Standards.She said, “I feel immensely honoured and a little overwhelmed to have been selected by the Governing Body of St Anne’s College to be their Principal and to be the first police officer ever appointed to head an Oxbridge College.“St Anne’s is rightly proud of its history of having been established by a remarkable group of determined people in order to enable women of any financial background, with talent, appetite and determination, to gain a university education at Oxford.“It resolutely continues to seek to identify and nurture students with potential, regardless of privilege.”Robert Chard, Acting Principal, said, “speaking on behalf of the Fellowship, I would like to stress how delighted we are at the outcome of this election. St Anne’s selects its Principals for their values and personal qualities, and Helen King combines genuine human warmth with impressive competence and a commitment to inclusiveness, diversity and opportunity.“We feel she will work well with all segments of the St Anne’s community – students, staff, Fellows, and alumnae – in steering the College through what looks to be a time of many changes ahead, and keeping us in an optimal position to continue our tradition of transforming the lives of people who traditionally would not have had access to an Oxford education.”last_img read more

first_imghighlights Pakistan Super League coverage has been suspended in India.Pakistan cricket players’ photos has been removed.Pulwama terror attack killed 40 CRPF jawans. New Delhi: The fall-out of the Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF jawans were killed has hurt India and Pakistan cricketing relations. The Cricket Club of India (CCI) has covered the photo of Imran Khan, who is the former skipper and current Prime Minister of Pakistan while the photo of several Pakistan players has been removed from the Punjab Cricket Association and Rajasthan Cricket Association. Speaking about the incident, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has expressed ‘regret’ and said it will take up the issue with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in an International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting which will be later in the month.“We have always believed and emphasised that sports and politics should be kept separate. History tells us that sports, particularly cricket, have always played a key role in building bridges between people and countries. Covering or removing portrait of former Pakistan cricket captain and Prime Minister Imran Khan and other legendary cricketers from one of the most historic cricket clubs and venues are highly regrettable actions,” PCB Managing Director Wasim Khan stated.Apart from cricket associations, the coverage of the Pakistan Super League in India has also been affected. IMG Reliance has pulled out of covering the PSL games while D Sports has also suspended the coverage of the PSL games on Television in India. Apart from TV, digital platforms have also taken a stand with Cricbuzz, a popular digital platform not covering the games on their website. There is a #UninstallCricbuzz which is trending on Twitter and there is plenty of outrage against the site from Pakistan. Many Pakistani users have downgraded the app and are uninstalling the app for their lack of coverage on the PSL. An Australian journalist by the name of Denis Freedman, who primarily covers cricket in Pakistan, has changed his name on his Twitter handle to #UninstallCricbuzz to show solidarity with Pakistan. Cricbuzz’s rival, ESPNCricinfo, has not boycotted the PSL and continues to give ball-by-ball coverage, match reports on its site.Speaking about the incident, Wasim Khan said, “We have been informed by IMG Reliance that they will be unable to partner with us for the remaining PSL 2019 and PCB has reserved all its rights. The PCB always had a contingency plan in place.”India will take on Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup encounter in Old Trafford, Manchester on June 16.

College Scales Back Campus Plans at Fort

first_imgDuring its March 12 meeting, the Oceanport Planning Board approved NJCU’s site plan application for a single academic facility and adjacent parking lot. OCEANPORT – Following an outcry from borough officialsover the scope of its plans, New Jersey City University is scaling back itsproposal for a satellite campus at the former Fort Monmouth. FMERA Executive Director Bruce Steadman said that, though NJCUhas agreed to alter the amendment, Amendment #13 has not been withdrawn. This story originally appeared in the March 14-20 print edition of The Two River Times. “Based on discussions Oceanport and NJCU had regarding futureelements, NJCU has agreed to make some changes and reduce the scope of theproject to some extent. That doesn’t mean the amendment has been withdrawn oreradicated, but it will probably be amended,” Steadman said. Borough officials remain wary the larger plan by developer KKFUniversity Enterprises, LLC, may resurface in the future. They are concernedtheir borough can adequately provide emergency services and security services,or absorb the potential traffic. “Once we see how enrollment goes (at Fort Monmouth), we can sitdown again with everyone and revisit the plan. But it’s difficult to know whatwe’ll need because we don’t know what that demand looks like,” de Veyga added. NJCU Chief of Staff Guillermo de Veyga said the pullback was theresult of a late February meeting between the university, the development groupand members of the Oceanport Borough Council. “We have no interest in doing (Phase 2 and 3) right now,” saidde Veyga. “The university has no vision to immediately put these massivestructures in. Our enrollment doesn’t merit anything beyond Phase 1 right now.” FMERA has received 44 pages of public comments concerningAmendment #13, said Steadman. The organization’s staff will be reviewingsubmissions in coming weeks. “My concern is that at some point, down the road, thedevelopment group can resubmit the same amended plan and FMERA can try to getit passed again,” said Borough Councilman and Planning/Zoning Board memberRobert Proto. “We would be in the same situation we are now.” Instead of constructing a residence hall, academic lab, visualarts center, performing arts center and athletic center and a parking garage,NJCU says it will only seek to build a one-story academic facility, and parkinglot on the 27-acre Squier Hall parcel and an adjacent complex on Sherrill Ave,as originally proposed in September. KKF put its Phase 1 plan – the construction of the facilitybuilding, performing arts center and parking lot called Amendment #13 – inwriting to FMERA on Dec. 12. With undergraduate enrollment at approximately 7,000 students,de Veyga said that it could be five years before the school needs to revisitthe site plan. By Chris Rotolo and Laura Kolnoski Oceanport Borough Councilman Joe Irace said the meeting withNJCU was a positive one, and that he agrees with the administration’s vision toenhance the school’s footprint if the student body’s growth determines it. Because the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority(FMERA) has the authority to approve the project, the governing body would liketo enter into a redevelopment agreement with the developer and cut FMERA fromthe development process. “(Amendment #13) is a plan for years down the road. It’s allbased on potential growth. Instead of jamming it all into one plan andhamstringing us, take FMERA out of the equation and five or 10 years from now,come to our planning board and work with us. This should be an Oceanport/NJCUdecision,” Irace said. Steadman said the FMERA board will vote on the scope of the work at Squier Hall in April. The board is due to meet April 17 at 7 p.m. at 502 Brewer Ave. in Oceanport.last_img read more
