(Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer) ReddIt printA new workshop series is hoping to help TCU students deal with some common problems college students face. Student Success Series is a series of workshops being put on by Student Development Services to educate students about things like time management and stress control. “The goal is to provide student workshops that holistically support their living and learning at TCU with virtual and in-person options, which we are hearing that students are really craving during this time,” said Keri Cyr, the director of student success.Workshops that have previously been held include “Time Management: Balancing Life and Academics,” “Study Smart,” and “Manage Your Stress Before It Manages You.” In another workshop held earlier last month titled “Reading to Understand,” Stacy Mason, the associate director of student access and administration, educated students on how to comprehend readings and overall be more confident readers. “There is a big expectation in reading for high school and versus reading for college,” Mason said. Her presentation highlighted tips for students to use when reading and how to better evaluate their reading abilities now that they are in college. Natasha Kataw, a first-year pre-med major who attended this session, said this experience was very educational and beneficial for her college experience. “I would definitely go to another workshop like this. As a freshman, I believe it’s very important to use the resources I’m given in order to adapt more easily and faster to college life,” Kataw said.The series will last until Nov. 4 with workshops covering topics on how to write strong papers, how to deal with procrastination and how to have effective research skills. All of the previous sessions have been recorded and are posted on the SDS website, and for more information, students can email them at [email protected] ReddIt Previous articleHoroscope: November 2, 2020Next articleWhat we’re reading: Countdown to Election Day, latest COVID-19 surge breaks case records Charlotte Tomlinson RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

South Africans go to the polls

first_imgMillions are expected to cast their votestomorrow during South Africa’s fourthdemocratic elections.(Image: Britannica) In their election campaigns, politicalparties encouraged voters to use theirvotes to effect change in the country.(Image: Polity.org.za)Khanyi Magubane With less than 24 hours to go before South Africans cast their votes, the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) has announced that it expects the largest turnout since 1994.Briefing the media on the expected voter turnout, the IEC’s chairperson Dr Brigalia Bam said that more than 80% of the registered voters were expected to cast their vote on 22 April.“We feel very confident this time around. We have never experienced such a high enthusiasm amongst South Africans,” she said.Statistics for this year’s elections include 200 000 election officials who will be working in 19 726 voting stations across the country. The number of registered voters captured on the voters’ roll stands at 23 181 997.Bam said she’s especially encouraged by the high number of youths who have registered. According to Bam, the number is significantly higher than recorded in previous years. Nearly 800 000 are between 18 and 19 years of age, and five-million are between 20 and 29.In total, 40 political parties will be participating in the national and provincial elections. Of these, 26 will participate nationally, while 14 parties will contest the elections at a provincial level.Bam said the election campaigns ran by political parties had been vigorous, which she expects will boost voter numbers.“We have never had so many political parties all over the country so involved … persuading people to vote for them,” said the chairperson. “We will be disappointed if we don’t get the 80% turnout. The effort we have put in preparing for these elections will not be good enough if we get only a 50% voter turnout.”It’s voting day, now what?For many first time voters tomorrow’s experience may be a daunting one but the IEC has gone to great lengths to explain the process, as even those who have voted before, may have forgotten how the process works.In order to facilitate the smooth running of the voting process, a few key actions have been put in place. Firstly, voting station officials will check a potential voter’s ID to verify that the ID number appears on the voters’ roll.Secondly, an official will check that the picture in the ID matches with the person standing in front of them.Once the official is satisfied that the person is indeed eligible to vote, the voter’s hands will be checked to ensure that they have already cast their ballot for the day.Inedible ink will then be used to mark the left thumbThe voter will then be issued with two ballot papers – one for national and another for provincial.Officials will then direct the voter to a booth, where they will be able to cast their vote for their political party of choice, after which they will insert their ballot papers inside a secured ballot box.For the first time since the 1994 elections, the IEC has now introduced the Braille ballot paper, which will enable visually impaired South Africans to vote independently.South Africa is the second country after Japan to offer the Braille sheet to blind voters. Each voting station will be issued with a national and provincial Braille ballot paper.Observing free and fair electionsIn order for the elections to be recognised internationally as free and fair, a group of independent election observers will be present to monitor the voting process.Former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo is leading the election observers team consisting of 4 900 domestic observers, 355 international observers and 358 diplomats from 61 embassies.On 17 April IEC Chief Executive Officer Pansy Tlakula addressed the observers to discuss the state of readiness for the elections.Tlakula stressed that the IEC has spent the past year and a half in preparation for the elections. The process started with the registration of political parties who intended on running in this year’s poll.She also explained to the observers that new technologically advanced systems would be used during the voting. She introduced observers to the “Zip-Zip”, a small hand-held device already loaded with the details of all the voters.The “Zip-Zip” system will capture statistics on voting day including the number of voters, the age group, gender, as well as the time at which every vote is cast.After voting closes at 9pm, all the ballot papers will be transported to the National Results Operation Centre. The state-of-the-art building will serve as an anchor to coordinate all the election activities at one central point.The media will also be privy to the results as they trickle in via a digital board mounted inside the centre.Regular press briefings will be held inside the centre, where journalists will be updated with the latest developments from the various voting centres across the country.Members of various political parties will be provided with some access to the workings of the operations centre, though they will not be allowed to interfere with the work of the officials.Duties of election observers include attending the ballot paper counting session in a bid to ensure that the final results are accurate and are a true reflection of the votes.According to the electoral law, the final results can only be released 48-hours after the elections. This will give political parties a chance to contest interim results if they have any objections.Do you have any comments or queries about this article?

Johnson still 2 options for chance at 8th NASCAR Cup title

His first Cup victory would have locked him into a championship chance, and a top-five finish could have been a points boost. He instead finished 27th.

Kevin Harvick, now holding down the fourth spot, starts third. Points leader Truex starts seventh, two spots behind Kyle Busch.“Definitely confidence is high. Feel good about it. Mile and a half is — obviously they’ve been good for us this year, but honestly, I feel like everywhere we go this year, right now especially, we can run up front and have a shot at winning,” Truex said. “Being able to come here with a pretty nice points cushion feels good, and hopefully we’ll be able to go out here and take care of business.”Brad Keselowski, the other driver currently in the top four spots, starts 10th. That is a spot lower than Johnson, who has gone 20 races without a win.“Comfortable here, we’ve stayed alive. It hasn’t been pretty, but we’ve stayed alive,” Johnson said. “And we’re at one of our best tracks. … We want to win. If we can’t do that, we understand where we are at the points. Hopefully we can do it.”Hamlin has apologized publicly on social media to Elliott, but that didn’t change the frustration for Elliott, who said in Texas that he wouldn’t answer any questions about whether he was going to try to get Hamlin back on the track.That led to Johnson being asked if he had to be extra careful if he found himself behind Hamlin and his teammate Sunday.“Yeah, you stay aware. There is no doubt about it you don’t want to be caught up in something that you don’t need to be,” Johnson said. “But, we will just see how that evolves. Last weekend was crazy on a lot of levels.”There is certainly a lot more room, and a whole lot more speed, at the high-banked oval in Texas. “As long as the week has gone along, it has given me a lot of time to think about how close we were to going to Homestead,” Elliott said. “I think if anything else that will drive you up the wall more if you think about it.”Making things even more difficult and frustrating for Elliott in Texas, the No. 24 didn’t make it through tech inspection in time to make a qualifying run Friday. He will start 34th while all the other seven championship contenders qualified in the top 10.Martinsville winner Kyle Busch, who held off points leader Martin Truex Jr. in the race that needed five extra laps, is the only driver who has clinched one of the four championship-contending spots in the season finale.Kurt Busch, out of championship contention and with his Cup status for next season still unsettled, is on the pole at Texas after being one of five drivers with qualifying laps of more than 200 mph . He is now with Stewart-Haas Racing, though doesn’t have a deal settled for 2018 with that or any other team.“No updates for me. We are in negotiations,” Busch said, without elaborating after qualifying. “Days like today help quite a bit.”ADVERTISEMENT Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 Alcacer shines in Messi’s 600th game for Barcelona View commentslast_img read more
