Dear Ridi, I am not sure if the Mondi Austrian Student Scholarship is also available this year. Their website does not say anything about the year of the deadline, just the date (May 31st). I would suggest you write to them, and ask them all of your questions and concerns, seeing as they are the best suited to answer them correctly.You can contact them here http://www.mondigroup.com/desktopdefault.aspx/tab… , or here http://www.mondigroup.com/desktopdefault.aspx/tab… Kind regardsElenaMladiinfo on May 18, 2011 at 3:56 pm By Yimin says: Log in to Reply Log in to Reply By mladiinfo says: Log in to Reply The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s.

What if you would like to pursue a course in german language the first year ( because me German is not that advanced to get into college) do you think they would pay for that too ( bc in the website they say: for students who know german or who are willing to take a course) ??? And since they give you founds up to 4 years in means they will reduce one year since you got into the language course for one year? Do you know how it works.Thnx againAll the best,Eve By mladiinfo says: Log in to Reply Hi ET, In my opinion you are no longer eligible, if you were already accepted to a university.

Best, Kristina,Mladiinfo on March 24, 2011 at 1:10 pm Hello, Mondi group did not answer me lately, I was asking in Georgian citizen can apply for scholarship? Best, G. By Obadina samson says: Log in to Reply Hi, Taulant, I have no more information about the program that you do. Mladiinfo is not in contact with Mondi. I’d say that you’d start from the first year, but maybe after discussion with your professors/tutors, they could recognize some of your courses you have taken back in your country. Just write that your envisaged degree is a Bachelor, which you are probably aspiring to – or is it a Master?So, you plan to obtain a Bachelor’s degree until the 89th July 2013 and as Elena already mentioned – describe what you want to learn and gain from the degree.

Thank You very much Hello Mattewos, So here are your answers: 1. it is fine, because you will be not older than 23 years upon the deadline. 2. One of the required documents you have to submit is the Application letter. I am not very sure if they actually don’t mean the “admission letter”, which would mean, you would already have to be admitted to a university. Therefore, I would encourage you to write with your enquiry to Mondi themselves: http://www.mondigroup.com/desktopdefault.aspx/tab… You may find the list of Austrian universities for example here: http://www.mladiinfo.com/category/unis/austria/ or http://lmgtfy.com/?q=austrian+universities+master… And if YOU need any information, don’t hesitate to leave a comment here,I will be glad to reply. Good luck, Kristina,Mladiinfo on March 30, 2011 at 10:28 pm Hallo !Sorry to disturb you.I’d like to know if this great opportunity is this years also provided by Mondi ? If so I have some questions regarding the application procedure:– Do I have just to gather the documents required here and post them, and then if i get accepted Mondi will find me the University?? Or do I have to find a University by myself before making this application,..and fullfilling the reqired areas of the online application regarding that University and the study programs ? Thank you for the time and attention !Please reply me asap By mladiinfo says: The documents can also be sent by mail at the address stated.( I had a reply from Mondi) LinkedIn 0 Yes! Thank you very much, I think I’ll do what you suggested Log in to Reply Log in to Reply Log in to Reply Hi, Dren, well, the application is so stupid, I admit, as they don’t specify what actually you should upload.I would assume that probably a resume or an application letter (which is a letter of introduction attached to, or accompanying another document such as CV) or your personal motivation, as those serve as the first contact documents. Don’t forget to send all the other documents by post, there is little time, btw. There was a lively discussion about the objective of your studies just above, please, refer to it.

But I have only two questions, if you can please help me with them. I am now in the First Year of computer science, as i mentioned above. And my question is, “IF” I win this Scholarship, Must I start from the first year? Or the second year? Do you have any information about that? My second question: You told me to write about the curriculum and the Timeline, and I wanted to ask you, what does that ENVISAGED DEGREE mean? Do those two things (Timeline and Curriculum) go into the ENVISAGED DEGREE? Or should I write something else about the Envisaged degree? Again, thank you very much for your response, you helped me a lot.

I would advise you to be more persistent and send your questions to the Foundation until you get your reply. Regards,DijanaMladiinfo on March 9, 2013 at 3:14 pm By mladiinfo says: By Dokleata says: Log in to Reply Hi there, My concern is, will the successful candidates/applicants have the opportunity to tell Mondi that he/she wants to enrol in a particular university in Austria? Secondly, will “Mondi Austria Private Foundation” nominates a university for every candidates/applicants who are successful? Thidly, is it necessary to send paper application (Hard copy) by the postal address that is given, or applicants have to apply online and than send the paper application as well, what are they actually asking for? Fourth, Can the online application form be use to notify Mondi about your paper application when you have send it? Fifth, the online Application has a place called “Your Studies” that include “Name of institution, country of institution, city/town of institution, study field, and Academic Year/semester”. Are they asking for previous High school-leave details or they are asking for the field that an applicant is insterested in applying for at a recommended Universited in Austria when he/she is successful for the Grant of the scholarship? Sorry for taking up your time to ask all of these question, it’s much better to ask one time and do further reading. that’s whay I send it like boom. Thanks T-phil Hi Salil, Were you proficient in German upon applying to the University of Vienna? How is your study now? Dear Eve, Sorry, but this: “Advice and support for the scholarship holders in connection with visa, insurance, language courses and search for accommodation” does NOT imply what you said: “means you can spend one year studying german and you can use the money for living expenses + course” And on their website they say that “basic knowledge of the German language or willingness to attend German courses in Austria (proof of basic knowledge after two semesters)” is one of the selection criteria, nothing about financing the courses. So, I still arrived at the conclusion that I am not sure if they cover the costs of German courses.

Thank you for your concirn Dren Mullafetahu , Prizren Kosovo Hi, Eve, I have absolutely no idea how it works, I can only rely on the information provided. I guess they would only help to find you some language courses (as they don’t mention a financial support in connection with visa, insurance, language courses…) Btw, where is stated this: “in the website they say: for students who know german or who are willing to take a course”? I couldn’t find it anywhere. And I have no clue if they deduct the course period from the overall study period. But, you could also try to look for some English-conducted programs.

Hi Nina, To your first question, well I am not sure what they mean, but as you can read on the post you have to furnish proof of being eligible for admission to an Austrian university or a university in their respective country of residence (proof of eligibility for university admission in the country where the school-leaving certificate was issued). So my guess is that you don’t have to have the offer letter. But if I was you, I would write them directly! http://www.mondigroup.com/desktopdefault.aspx/tab… Secondly, application letter is a letter of introduction attached to, or accompanying another document such as CV.

Hi, I would like to know why when I submit the application form by online I see 2 files will be attached ?I am wondering what two files, could you tell me? Thank you so much! By Eve says: Hi, Indeed those are a lot of questions! Let’s do it:1st and 2nd: I really don’t know the answer to these questions. I would say yes, but there is nothing stated anywhere.3rd: yes. “Complete application documents must be received by the Austria Student Scholarship of the “Mondi Austria Private Foundation” by not later than May 31st.” to the address given in our post and with the documents referred.4th: I don’t understand what are you asking.5th: I would say they are asking for previous High school-leave details,a s it doesn’t make much sense that they are asking you in each country you would like to study.

Best regards, SofiaMladiinfo Hi, S.A., As mentioned earlier in the comments, I am really not sure if the South-Eastern Europe region may apply.Plus, you should be able to provide “proof of being eligible for admission to an Austrian university or a university in their respective country of residence”, which is your matura certificate, and are you sure you will have it by the deadline? 2. “Copies of transcripts.” – tvojite ocenki od shkolo, overenje so ocenkite. 3. 3. “Precise description of the objective of your studies (including curriculum, timeline and a description of the envisaged degree).”Objective means your future plan of study, what courses you are planning to take, how much time it will take to obtain your degree and so on. 4.” The application documents have to be sent in English or German”Do these has to be sent by post on this address:Mondi Austria Private FoundationGertraud MaxKelsenstrasse 7AT – 1032 , Vienna ?? Yes So please, try to write them first with your questions regarding the South-Eastern Europe region eligibility and if 4th graders can apply not having matura yet. Good luck, Kristina,Mladiinfo Log in to Reply Hello everyone!I have some questions.I’m interested if the information about tuition fees (where I’d like to apply) should be written in the Study Objectives?Second, I have read everything above concerning the Study Objectives. I also asked many people and I’m really confused! Some say, that it should only provide the info they are asking, very shortly, like a Form, something like this:City: University:Field of study: (including degree, program discription and curriculum)Period of study: (full-time or part-time and years)But some say it should be written like a letter, something like: “I would like to study this and that, because of this and that, in this city, university. I will study this subjects (here goes the program description I guess and the curriculum) and I intend to start my studies in year XXXX and finish in year XXXX.”So which one is the right one? I can’t decide… on May 19, 2011 at 10:31 am By John says: Share 0 Dear Anabana, ad 1: I don’t quite understand your first point, as the tuition fees have nothing to do with Study Objectives as such. I mean you can mention (probably in the motivation letter) that you are applying for the scholarship, as you cannot afford to bear the costs of tuition fees. ad 2: Well, I also don’t know which one is the right form, but why not make a compromise and merge it into one? So, at the top you could write an outlined one: City:University:Field of study: (including degree, program discription and curriculum)Period of study: (full-time or part-time and years) and below it you may add a letter-like explanation.

Yet, without prior knowledge about German, you can still apply. A bachelor degree in Austria lasts for three years, while support from Mondi is 4 years. This means you can use your first one year in Austria devoted to language learning. – Travel expenses can be used for return flight ticket back to your home country. – Please contact Mondi by the email they provided since there might be some further notice you need to know. – Also, contact your desired university before applying for Mondi scholarship. This is a tip. Mondi will not help you much in finding your desired university. You all have to do this yourself. And be well-prepared since Mondi requires you to plan your future education here. – If you don’t know German, and the school’s website is only in German, try Google Translate. Hehe. Dear Mian, Please note that Mladiinfo does not give scholarships or any financial support, but only informs about different opportunities. Click on the direct link to the official page above to apply for the program. Besides, those are the rules of Mondi, I don’t think you can change it.

Those mates who got accepted in University of Vienna, can you share your experience? As far as I know, I have to know basic German to study there, yet they say it depends. I am wondering if I can do them both, I mean studying German and going to the Uni at the same time … This seems tough, yet I need to confirm. Log in to Reply Hi ET, Please, understand that Mladiinfo is not Mondi and therefore has no more information than is provided by them. There is no information about when they should announce the results, but usually the selection procedure takes from 1-3 months. Where? Well, it won’t be announced anywhere but you – if you gave them your details, so either they will get to you by e-mail or call or whatnot.

Law firm investigates Bethesda over Fallout 76 refund policy

first_imgLaw firm investigates Bethesda over Fallout 76 refund policyConsumers left with an “unplayable experience”, says Migliaccio & RathodHaydn TaylorSenior Staff WriterTuesday 27th November 2018Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleBethesda Game StudiosBethesda Game Studios is under investigation by law firm Migliaccio & Rathod for its refund policy towards Fallout 76 consumers. According to the Washington DC-based firm, Bethesda is refusing to issue refunds to people who bought Fallout 76 and found it unplayable due to bugs and technical issues. Just four days ago, multiple users on Reddit claim they were able to get refunds out of Bethesda. However, since then the developer has reportedly stopped issuing refunds. While the Bethesda has been criticised in the past for releasing buggy games, Fallout 76 apparently goes beyond the pale, and was hammered by critics for being consistently broken. Migliaccio & Rathod paralegal Bruno Ortega-Toledo said: “While minor bugs and glitches are expected with the release of most new games, Fallout 76 launched with a 56gb patch that has proven to be but a starting point for the game’s problems.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans!

EC’s Mysterious Meds Budget

When Equestrian Canada revealed their 2017 financial summary last week, at least one committee was surprised to see the numbers that they have not been able to review in over a year. EC reports that Equine Medications operated at a loss of $33,004 for the 2017 fiscal year which ended March 31, but the committee is unable to explain the shortfall.“I can’t comment on the deficit,” said Yves Rossier, chair of the Equine Medication committee. “The EMCC (Equine Medication Control Committee) has not been provided with a detailed financial statement and the breakdown of expenses and revenues to explain the 33k deficit.”Rossier noted that the group meets face-to-face each November to review the entire program, but they were unable to review the financial information at their November 2016 meeting because EC did not provide any details. The new Chief Financial Officer was just getting settled (she subsequently resigned a month later) and EC advised the group that the office was in the midst of changing accounting software so the information was not available. Without those details, the committee was unable to review the costs and income that go into the Equine Medication budget and so could not verify that the items were correctly allocated. Despite repeated requests since, EC still has not provided the group with the necessary information.“I was very surprised that they released numbers showing we overspent by $33,000 when they haven’t been able to provide us with any information,” commented fellow committee member, Geoff Vernon, DVM, who has been on the committee since 2014. “We asked again after the financial summary was released but were once again told that they weren’t available. Explain how that’s possible if they can release a summary?”Without the detailed financial information to prove otherwise, many in the industry are concerned that EC is funneling operational expenses through various committees to pay for their overall budget. “The equine meds budget is supposed to be self-sustaining,” added Vernon. “It is not our mandate to cover the overhead of the EC office but I suspect that might be the case.”Aside from their inability to get their financial questions answered, the committee has had difficulty maintaining communications with EC. “The link with EC is inconsistent,” commented Vernon. “There has been tremendous turnover and as soon as we trained a new staffer they would leave.”The high staff turn-over under Eva Havaris’s time as CEO has been challenging. EC’s Competition Services Coordinator, Emily Church, left abruptly this spring and her absence almost derailed the entire 2017 program. “Without an EC point person in charge of assigning technicians for the shows and sending out the testing kits, there was nobody to execute the program,” said Vernon.The committee’s experience highlights the difficulties that many others in the industry have echoed over the last year. The parade of CFOs during Havaris’s employment have made getting any financial information at the committee level impossible. This is exacerbated by Havaris’s insistence that EC’s new operational structure means that financial details are the sole domain of the head office and of no concern to the committees.EC’s AGM is scheduled for Monday September 25 at 7pm ET. While only board members and the 27 voting members are permitted to participate, interested parties can watch the proceedings via Facebook Live. For those not on social media, EC will post the video of the AGM on their website after the event along with the minutes.The board agreed to answer voting members’ questions before the AGM and a maximum of two questions during the AGM from each of the three categories. Perhaps the voters – who represent the entire industry – will have more success in demanding financial transparency and accountability. While the CEO reports to the board, the board answers to the voters who should be asking why their representatives continue to support a CEO who is responsible for the ongoing confusion and distrust that is thwarting the industry.

ASK A COP — Can I still drive with a missing passenger side mirror?

first_imgAnswer: You are correct in knowing that each state law may differ no matter how close the states are to each other. In the great state of Texas, there is NO law that states if you turn on windshield wipers your headlights must be on. I understand a motorist will turn on his or her wipers during inclement weather conditions. In Texas, there are three events that mandate the use of headlights: first, 30 minutes after sunset; second, 30 minutes before sunrise; and third, if visibility is less than a 1,000 feet, which equates to about three city blocks. Mary, with that said, it’s not a bad idea to turn on the headlights when it’s raining. Answer: I guess we need to make a public announcement for all motorists to “beware of garbage cans sitting on the side of the roadway; they are destroying side view mirrors” (smile). I have good news for you. If your driver’s side view mirror is in place, you are NOT in violation of the state of Texas Transportation Code. In the state of Texas all motorists are required to have at least one operable side view or one operable rear view mirror, where the driver can see behind them. Vehicles are manufactured with one rear view mirror and two side view mirrors. To be in compliance with the state of Texas, at least one of those mirrors have to be attached and operable.

In Louisiana, the police are very strict concerning the windshield wiper/headlight law. In Louisiana, when you turn on your windshield wipers, you must turn on your car headlights. Is that the same law here in Texas? Kennedy from Vidor asks: I recently had a small fender bender, where my side view mirror hit a garbage can and fell off. Obviously, I didn’t do any damage to the garbage can, but my passenger mirror fell out and I need a replacement. I have to drive to Port Arthur for work and this is my only means of transportation. If I get stopped by the police, will I get a ticket for my missing side view mirror? Paul from Port Arthur asks: I have a small sports car that’s pretty fast. Let me clear the air, I’m not a speeder, I just like my car. My question is, let’s say the speed limit is 50 mph and I’m at a traffic light that’s red. When the light turns green, is it illegal to quickly get up to 50 mph? Answer: I was impressed to hear you’re not a speeder, even though you have a sports car. If you’re stopped at a traffic signal that’s red and it turns green, as long as you “DO NOT” do what’s commonly known as burn rubber from a stopped position, there’s no law governing how fast you can get up to 50 mph, as long as it can be done SAFELY! So, Paul, enjoy your sports car, drive safely and always remember speeding kills.last_img read more

Nothing desultory for reigning spelling bee champ Ronan Howlett of Middlebury

Howlett, an eighth grader from Middlebury Union Middle School, and last year’ s winner, will now compete against top spellers from every other state in the nation in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, DC, in June.  The winning word was ‘ desultory,’ an adjective which means ‘ marked by absence of a plan; disconnected; jumping from one thing to another; digressing from the main subject; random.’  Emily Ballou, of South Royalton School, came in second. Nicholas Knudsen, of Frederick H Tuttle Middle School came in third. In addition to advancing to the national spelling bee, Ronan Howlett received a trophy, an iPad and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., sponsored by FairPoint Communications, Vermont Lake Monsters, Burlington Free Press, Vermont Humanities Council, Vermont Principals Association and Vermont Agency of Education.

How one credit union effectively uses Pinterest

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr A hot marketing topic is the wide variety of social media platforms and how marketing professionals use them. We recently visited with Brenna Kowall, Digital Marketing Specialist with Firefighters Community Credit Union ($200 million assets, 27,500 members) in Cleveland, Ohio to find out more about her efforts using Pinterest.1) How long has your credit union been involved in Pinterest and what prompted you to join?Our credit union joined Pinterest about two years ago. We recently went through a rebranding campaign and saw Pinterest as a good way to reach out to both existing and potential members and the communities we serve. We find Pinterest, among other things, is a good outlet for improving our brand identity and also a great member engagement tool. Pinterest is not just another social media channel we have our name on. It’s an amazing marketing tool that helps us connect with our members and potential members and the community.2) How has Pinterest helped your credit union better connect with members and potential members?We’ve found people that use Pinterest (our Pinners) tend to take over the job of sharing information for the credit union. When we share something of interest, our Pinners take the initiative to pin, re-pin and share with their networks. You don’t usually see that kind of interaction in traditional marketing and we want to take full advantage of it.3) What challenges have you faced using Pinterest?The elephant in the room when it comes to Pinterest is the heavily female-skewed demographic. Honestly, if you’re looking to reach a mostly male audience, Pinterest is not the best outlet for your social media efforts. The way we look at it, though, women control the budgeting and purse-strings in many households these days, so using Pinterest to reach them makes sense. continue reading »last_img read more
