Students to study across continents

first_imgThis fall marks the first semester of the World Bachelor’s in Business (WBB) program, a new major in the Marshall School of Business that allows freshmen to travel to three continents over a period of four years, and earn degrees from universities in Milan and Hong Kong as well as USC.The program is a partnership between USC, Bocconi University in Milan and the Hong Kong School of Science and Technology.“WBB represents a unique approach to undergraduate education that global executives have been demanding for years, an approach that will prepare a new generation of leaders for the opportunities of an increasingly interconnected world,” Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Elizabeth Garrett, said in a USC Marshall press release.Forty-five students were admitted to the program for the fall 2013 semester. The students will spend one year at each university and choose which of the three universities they want to spend their final year at. They will earn business degrees from all three institutions.“It’s definitely a little nerve-wracking to be one of the ‘guinea pigs’ for this program,” Sophia Lim, a freshman World Bachelor’s in Business member from Hong Kong, said. “I’m comforted by the fact that the pros and the expected outcome of WBB outweigh the cons.”The WBB students have intenational backgrounds as  diverse as the program itself. They are united, however, by their interest in global business at Marshall.“I was planning on applying to USC, and I saw an advertisement for WBB on Marshall’s website,” said Austin, Texas native Aseem Afsah. “For me it was about the language and culture. I’m passionate to learn as much as I can. It opens doors to learning about whole new sets of people.”WBB participants take a mandatory course on Mondays and Wednesdays in addition to the standard USC Marshall curriculum. Fellow Marshall students and faculty view the program as a way for the school to further establish itself as a leader in global business.“From a [global] business standpoint, the best benefit is getting immersed in culture,” Brian Bourn, a senior majoring in business administration, said. “Seeing what business is like firsthand in Hong Kong is better than learning about it through a class in Los Angeles.”The WBB students participated in Welcome Week events along with other freshmen. Though they are part of an exclusive set of accepted applicants, the WBB students feel a connection to the Trojan Family as a whole.“I really liked the speeches by the president and the dean,” Anna Pollastri, a WBB student from Italy, said of the convocation ceremony. “They talked about the Trojan Family… I really like the word ‘family.’ We’re not just classmates. We’re a small group of WBB students, but we’re a part of something bigger.”WBB participants plan on taking advantage of USC’s unique scholastic and extracurricular opportunities during their year in Los Angeles.“I’m interested in business, but I have a deep passion for cinema,”  Augusto Vighy, a freshman from Vicenza, Italy, said.Vighy hopes to attend the School of Cinematic Arts’ symposiums and lectures this fall.Though students are excited about the variety of cultures they will experience at three universities, some regret missing out on the typical four-year college experience.“The biggest negative is that you only stay for one year,” Vighy said. “That’s tough. I’ve already met some cool guys, and they’re going here for all four years, and I’ll only be here for one.”Others view the rapid change in a positive light.“I love USC so far,” said Douglas Rose, a London native in the WBB program. “It’s going to be hard to say goodbye once this year is over. But I also think I’ll love Milan. I’ll love Hong Kong. I think by the end, we [WBB] students will have had a great experience.”Follow on us on Twitter @dailytrojanlast_img read more

first_imgSANTA CLARA — There’s something Jimmy Garoppolo wants you to know.“This isn’t something I want to get used to,” the 49ers quarterback said Friday after hobbling to his locker on crutches. “I want to be out there with the guys battling and preparing for the week. We’ll get back there next year.”Smiling often and speaking mostly about his resolve, Garoppolo addressed reporters for the first time since sustaining a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left leg on Sept. 23 in Kansas City. …last_img read more

Amazon Prime Stalks Netflix, Hulu With Zombieland Pilot

Between Netflix and Hulu Plus, consumers are treated to a variety of original programming financed and produced not by mega studios but by digital content companies that have little interest of seeding their content to cable channels. Netflix’s House of Cards has been a critical success and Hulu has some sleeper hits like Battleground.With the investment in original content from its top competitors, Amazon will not be left behind.Amazon today announced that it is picking up the pilot to Zombieland, a television series adaption from the movie staring Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Jesse Eisenberg. The move to pick up Zombieland is part of a larger original content play from Amazon as the company has promised to produce 13 series from a variety of pilots. Amazon is specifically focusing on comedy and children’s programming for its original content.Zombieland and other pilots from Amazon will be featured on its Prime Instant Video streaming service. Amazon will pick the 13 series from its array of pilots based on user feedback.The Zombieland series will be produced by the movie’s original creative team including writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The roles occupied by the likes of Harrelson and Stone have been recast to Kirk Ward and Maiara Walsh, respectively.Zombies are all the rage right now. The Walking Dead is killing it on cable. The adaptation of Max Brook’s novel World War Z is coming to the big screen in June with Brad Pitt.Content Marketing At Its BestPeople started scratching their heads a few years ago when companies like Netflix and Hulu started bidding on original series from prominent production companies. Why would Netflix spend millions of dollars to obtain House of Cards? Or make one final season of Arrested Development? This was not the business model we had come to expect from these companies. Netflix traditionally licensed content from the archives of major studios for its streaming service, not created its own. As the original programming has come to the screen, the play has made a lot more sense. House of Cards has a lot of people talking and the only way to see it is to have a Netflix streaming account. Users will have to get a Amazon Prime account to see the likes of Zombieland. Essentially, these original programs are giant marketing ploys. When it comes down to it, the point of marketing is to get people talking about your product. When people talk about your product, there is a chance they will actually spend money to use it. House of Cards certainly has people talking. If Zombieland the series is as good as Zombieland the movie, Amazon could see an uptick in Prime customers.HBO has been doing this for years, from Oz to the Sopranos to Game Of Thrones. The difference now is that you do not need a cable subscription to get great exclusive programming.Great For Cord CuttersFor consumers, the original content wars are the best thing to happen to television since the cable wars erupted in the 1980s. For the first time, television watchers are able to get true a la carte viewing options, choosing from here or there for what they want to watch as opposed to choosing various “bundles” of channels from the cable companies. Consumers that want to rid themselves of the monthly cable bill will have plenty of content to choose from and not just the shows that aired years before. In the end, everybody wins (except for, maybe, the cable companies). Lead image courtesy Shutterstock.last_img read more

Aussies Four From Four After Day One

first_img18’s GirlsAustralia has held out a tough New Zealand 18’s Girls team, taking the opening match of the series 5-4 today. New Zealand proved that they were going to be tough to beat from the outset, scoring a touchdown in the opening set of the game to take an early 1-0 lead. It looked as though New Zealand would further extend their in the seventh minute, but their touchdown was disallowed. Mistakes from Australia early in the match saw New Zealand dominate the first half of the poening term, but Australia soon found their rhythm. The Australians levelled the game up at 1-all in the 12th minute, when Chloe Crotty scored on the wing off an overlap. The Australians took the lead for the first time in the game in the 17th minute, when a great acting half run from Madison Regan saw captain Laura Peattie score to take a 2-1 lead. Australian vice-captain Yasmin Meakes scored on the far wing shortly before half-time to extend Australia’s lead to two and take a 3-1 lead into half-time. New Zealand were quick to hit back after half-time, with Jess Mahar using her speed to score in the second minute of the game to bring them back to 3-2, before Crotty scored her second on the wing for Australia in the next set, with the visitors taking a 4-2 lead. Breannan Singman extended Australia’s lead just after the midway mark of the half, to take a 5-3 lead. New Zealand then scored two quick touchdowns, to get back to a one touchdown deficit with minutes remaining, but were unable to continue their comeback, with Australia claiming the game 5-4. Stay tuned to the TFA YouTube channel for highlights from the match – www.youtube.com/touchfootballaus 18’s BoysThe second match of the day was keenly fought from the opening whistle with the 2011 Champions New Zealand trying to keep hold of the only title won by the Kiwis in the last tournament.Australia started in the best possible way with a touchdown out wide on their first set. Jason Norford benefitted from some smart lead-up play and made no mistake in crossing over.It wasn’t an immediate response form New Zealand but after a few minutes of finding their way, Ethan Hunt got the home team on the scoreboard in an emphatic fashion, diving over in the middle.Touchdowns to each team then followed with neither being able to gain any ascendancy. Isaac Walker scored a nice touchdown in the middle for NZ to go 3-2 up.The play of the half then belonged to Mackenzie Haugh who ran down an Australian intercept and dived for the saving touch with just 1 metre before the Touchdown would have been made by Theo Majid.Jason Norford, Majid and James Western then piled on three touchdowns for Australia to turn the game on its head. Western and Majid’s were worthy of a highlight real and in a flash New Zealand were on the back foot going into the halftime break.Australia stretched its lead to 6-3 early in the second half but the Kiwis stayed in it with one of their own. Australia’s Jackson Luke then took an intercept to give his team a 3-touchdown buffer again. Both teams then traded Touchdowns once moreBoth teams then traded Touchdowns once moreIt was then New Zealand’s turn to go on a run of Touchdowns with Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi and William Raea scoring to make it 7-8.A final Touchdown to Australia was enough to seal the match 9-7 but New Zealand showed enough this afternoon to suggest that this series will be tightly fought. 20’s GirlsThe Australians made it onto the scoreboard early in the game, when Catherine Sargent scored in the third minute to give the visitors a 1-0 lead. Both team’s defence held strong for the next 10 minutes, with the game going from end to end, before Rebecca Mounsey scored on the wing for Australia to take a 2-0 lead with six minutes remaining in the half. A beautiful long ball from co-captain Rachel Beck in the 18th minute saw Tracy Hill score on the wing, before New Zealand scored their first touchdown of the match in the next set, then Australia scored their fourth of the match to take a 4-1 lead into half-time. Australia extended their lead to three just after the break, when Melissa Peters scored of the tap-off move in the first set to take a 5-1 advantage. They were back on the scoreboard shortly after when Toni Wells scored in the second minute of the half to take a 6-1 lead. Maddie Studdon made it 7-1 at the midway mark of the first half, before Chloe Williamson scored New Zealand’s first touchdown of the half with just under five minutes remaining. Peters hit back to claim her second touchdown of the game in the next set, to take a six touchdown lead and the win, 8-2.  20’s BoysThe marquee event for the day was the Under 21 Men’s match; both teams had plenty of experience to match their youthful exuberance and it was Australia who took the challenge to New Zealand with an opening onslaught of three Touchdowns.Wesley Sefuiva, Scott Bundy and Simon Lang were all at the end of some good lead-up play  and made no mistake in their execution. With the platform laid by Australia, New Zealand were forced to play catch-up and eventually got one back through Tyson Johnson.New Zealand were soon back on attack and looking for a second score when Cohan Guerra anticipated the kiwi pass to the millimetre, intercepted and then with a freakish show of speed, streaked away to score.With the score 4-1 at halftime, the kiwis had a mountain to climb and Henry Tuatea took the first couple of steps with a touchdown in the middle of the park to keep his team in it.From thereon in though, it was all the green and gold. Oscar Sanft was first to score and not long after Wesley Sefuiva provided a nice inside ball to Matthew Goodrope to further extend the lead. Adam Pryde also got into the act and by full-time a dominant Austrlia had racked up 10 touchdowns to go out big winners and provide New Zealand with a lot of questions to answer leading into Game 2 tomorrow.ResultsDay One Results18’s GirlsAustralia 5 defeated New Zealand 418’s BoysAustralia 9 defeated New Zealand 720’s GirlsAustralia 8 defeated New Zealand 220’s BoysAustralia 10 defeated New Zealand 2Related LinksDay One Resultslast_img read more

I’m there to do a job, I’ve got to be focused. It’s not easy, I don’t think it will be easy but I’m looking forward to it. I think the boys are looking forward to playing at Old Trafford. That’s the key. We should be looking forward to playing there. I was sat next to Rene Meulensteen as a coach in a Reserves-team game there once, and I was there with Cardiff, but, of course, it will be special.”You can never set the bar too high. They [the players] are setting the standards. The players that play for this club, they’ve got high standards to live up to and, Saturday, it was not like they’ve outperformed themselves because you cannot outperform yourself. We want to look at this game, evaluate and look at a few clips. We can be better, we can understand each other better, so it will be good.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
