The teaching and learning experience along with cultural, sporting and artistic opportunities, as well as welfare and support services such as health facilities, counselling and pastoral care, are what makes the MIC student experience so unique.  According to Emma Byrne, 1 Year BA in Education, Gaeilge and Business Studies student in MIC Thurles, “Although college life consisted of a laptop and home this year, I still felt a sense of belonging to MIC. The approachable lecturers, realistic deadlines and shorter days made my first year very enjoyable. I found Irish grinds with MIC provided support and gave me lots of confidence with the language. MIC is a student-centred college that prioritises us – I am really looking forward to life in MIC Thurles with friends when things get back to normal!” A large part of the student experience is engagement with the students’ union. The Mary I Students’ Union (MISU) plays a key role in giving students a voice, helping them to use it, and enriching the college experience. The benefits of having an active students’ union are many and varied – MISU gives students a say in their own student/college life, they create a positive college experience for students, help students to integrate into MIC and facilitate extra-curricular activities for students. For many student’s involvement in sport is what makes their college experience. MIC has a proud sporting history with many students, and alumni, making their mark having represented county and country in various sports including GAA, hockey, rugby, athletics, handball, soccer and rowing. Many current and past students are playing at county-level in Gaelic games and individuals are excelling in a number of sports at national and international level including Ciara Griffin (Ireland women’s rugby), Roísín Upton (Ireland women’s hockey) and Amy O ’Donoghue (middle distance runner for Ireland) to name but a few. The MIC senior hurling team have won the Fitzgibbon Cup twice. Indeed, MIC recently introduced Elite Sports Scholarships open to all students who have excelled in their chosen sport. MIC strives to enrich the lives of the students and staff through introducing art into the surroundings, hosting cultural events and fostering an atmosphere where the community can express itself. There are numerous opportunities for students to participate in informal productions and public performances. The College has a particularly active drama society, the MIC Dramatic Arts Society (MIDAS), which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2019 and the MIC Limerick campus boasts a 510-seat theatre, the Lime Tree Theatre, which plays host to the best in local, national and international performing arts. MIC also boasts a community radio station designed for the third-level students of Limerick. Wired FM, which recently celebrated its 25th Anniversary, is always looking for volunteers who want to try their hand at student broadcasting.  According to Station Manager, Ray Burke, “Wired FM offers so many opportunities for the learning and development of students. Not only do we provide a source of specially tailored programming for student listeners, but the content is produced by students for students. It’s a forum for the cross pollination and exchange of ideas, especially with Wired’s unique set up, where there are multiple colleges and campuses involved in the partnership.” Both the MIC Limerick and MIC Thurles campuses are within walking distance of social and cultural hubs making both campuses great places to live and study and offer students the complete college experience. According to Bachelor of Arts graduate, Tina ODwyer, “Choosing MIC was one of the best decisions I have ever made. MIC is a diverse place where you are constantly given chances to broaden your horizons academically as well as opportunities to grow as a person.” Take the MIC Virtual Tour here.Questions can be submitted during the Live Sessions or in advance to [email protected]  Register for the MIC Student Experience Sessions at www.mic.ie/CAO TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick PostMICMIC LimerickMIC Student ExperienceMIC Thurles Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Email Previous articleAer Lingus needs to clarify Shannon plans – CroweNext articleLimerick Filmmaker’s Movie in New York Festival Sarah Carrhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Advertisement Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Facebooklast_img read more

Great Neck Nude Photo Extortionist’s Victims Describe Relentless Stalking

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Some victims of a Republican presidential campaigner from Long Island who tried extorting nude photos from 15 women fled the country, sought therapy and hired private investigators to deal with the stalking.Those were among new details described in court documents when U.S. District Judge Marianna Battani this week sentenced 22-year-old Adam Savader of Great Neck to 2 ½ years in federal prison despite his attorneys’ blaming the hacking on mental health issues sparked by working on Newt Gingrich’s failed presidential campaign.“He said that he had hacked into my email and Facebook accounts, found explicit photos of me, and that if I did not send more to him he would use them against me,” one of the unidentified victims wrote in a letter to the court. “This harassment continued relentlessly for days at a time, would stop for a few days, and then resume again from a different number.”Savader—who later worked on Mitt Romney’s bid for the White House—had pleaded guilty in November to cyber stalking and Internet extortion at federal court in Michigan, where some of the victims went to college. Authorities said they found victims in at least three states that were targeted between 2012 and early 2013, after the campaign.“I’m trying to make it right,” Savader told the court in his apology, reported The Associated Press, which noted he was quoting President Bill Clinton’s apology for his affair with Monica Lewinsky.It was a much different tone than the sexually aggressive taunts that prosecutors outlined in their sentencing recommendation.“Just came to u,” he wrote to one of the victims two weeks before Election Day while he was on the GOP campaign trail. “Ur so hot. Every1 will be doing the same if you don’t respond.”Savader threatened to send the photos to various people in the victims’ lives, including their parents, their boyfriends’ parents,  sororities, employers, internships—even the Republican National Committee.He often sent victims a link to a website to which he had uploaded their nude photos to prove he had them and warned that he would share the link if they didn’t send more. More victims came forward after the case made news. Investigators said they found 45 nude photos of the victims in Savader’s files—some of whom could not be contacted.One victim wrote she had to turn her phone off to stop receiving the relentless threatening messages. It was impossible to block the numbers because they were constantly changing, she wrote.“In an effort to escape this situation [one victim] left school in January 2013 to study abroad halfway around the world,” prosecutors said in the documents.Countering his lawyers’ arguments that Savader’s mental health diagnoses should be considered as a mitigating factor, prosecutors asked: “If he didn’t believe his behavior was criminal, why did he take so many deliberate steps to conceal his identity and hide his electronic footprint?”Authorities also noted that the victims are not to blame for storing intimate photos on password-protected email accounts, which they likened to “the modern-day equivalent of storing photographs in a shoe-box, in a closed bedroom closet, behind a locked door.”last_img read more

Affirmed: Study that ‘gay’ family children more troubled

first_imgWorld Net Daily 31 Aug 2012The University of Texas at Austin says it has investigated and found no evidence of research misconduct in a study that found adult children from “gay” families are “more apt to report being unemployed, less healthy, more depressed, more likely to have cheated on a spouse or partner, smoke more pot, had trouble with the law” than children from traditional mom-and-dad households.“The University of Texas at Austin has determined that no formal investigation is warranted into the allegations of scientific misconduct lodged against associate professor Mark Regnerus regarding his July article in the journal Social Science Research,” the school announced yesterday.It said a four-member advisory panel of senior university faculty members was consulted and an outside consultant, Alan Price, was asked to review the charges as part of the university inquiry into allegations made by Scott Rosensweig in a letter to the school.The conclusion was that the issues raised fell under the clause that “ordinary errors, good faith differences in interpretations of or judgments of data, scholarly or political disagreements, good faith personal or professional opinions, or private moral and ethical behavior or views are not misconduct.”The university said it considers the issue closed after school Research Integrity Officer Robert Peterson told officials “none of the allegations of scientific misconduct put forth by Mr. [Rosensweig was] substantiated either by physical data, written materials, or by information provided during the interviews.”He wrote “there is no evidence” to support Rosensweig’s inference that because he believed the research was flawed, there must be scientific misconduct.Regnerus had written a commentary about his study for Slate.com. He said that one “notable theme” among adult children of same-sex parents who reported higher levels of “male and female sex partners, more sexual victimization, and were more likely to reflect negatively on their childhood” than children of mom-and-dad households was “household instability, and plenty of it.”He explained his study “collected data from a large, random cross-section of American young adults – apart from the census, the largest population-based dataset prepared to answer research questions about households in which mothers or fathers have had same-sex relationships.”Regnerus said all participants who responded affirmatively were interviewed.“The differences, it turns out, were numerous. For instance, 28 percent of the adult children of women who’ve had same-sex relationships are currently unemployed, compared to 8 percent of those from married mom-and-dad families. Forty percent of the former admit to having had an affair while married or cohabiting, compared to 13 percent of the latter. Nineteen percent of the former said they were currently or recently in psychotherapy for problems connected with anxiety, depression, or relationships, compared with 8 percent of the latter. And those are just three of the 25 differences I noted.”He said the bottom line of the study is that “social scientists, parents, and advocates would do well from here forward to avoid simply assuming the kids are all right.”http://www.wnd.com/2012/08/affirmed-study-that-gay-family-children-more-troubled/The ‘Gay’-Activist Science DeniersTownhall 3 Sep 2012Woe to any scientist with an interest in objectively researching and reporting on “LGBT”-related issues. If your findings fail the left’s socio-political “butterflies-and-rainbows” litmus test, the “progressive” establishment will try to destroy you – guaranteed. Thus, on these matters, honest scientific inquiry will require courage.http://townhall.com/columnists/mattbarber/2012/09/03/the_gayactivist_science_deniers/page/full/last_img read more
