A former provincial government bureaucrat has been hired to run an Australian based private school on the U of M campus. Susan Deane left her job two weeks ago at the Council on Post Secondary Education, where she was the manager of university relations, and took over on Monday as director and principal of the International College of Manitoba. The for profit, private school is owned by the Australian firm Navitas Limited, which operates a string of similar colleges around the world, recruiting non English speaking international students and preparing them for second year university by providing small classroom settings for intensive English language classes and first year prepatory courses. Deane did not return calls from the Free Press. confidential deal between Navitas and the U of M administration has drawn criticism from members of the university board of governors and senate and from faculty and students, who are upset that the university administration negotiated the deal without informing the campus community. The issue came up at Wednesday meeting of senate, where members debated a motion requiring the administration to reveal portions of the Navitas deal that concerned academic matters. The motion was defeated. are major concerns that remain by students and faculty, Brad McKenzie, vice president of the faculty association and a professor of social work, said following today senate meeting. McKenzie said the faculty association believes portions of the Navitas deal must be brought to the senate, adding the association will meet soon to discuss its next move. Navitas set up its first Canadian college a year ago on the campus of Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, where its school is known as the Fraser International College. Navitas is also negotiating a similar deal with McMaster University in Hamilton. U of M critics point out that the administrations at the other universities brought the deals to their boards and senate for approval. The U of M vice president academic, Robert Kerr, described the Navitas deal as strictly a business arrangement that did not need to be reviewed or approved by either the board of governors or the Senate. Campus critics said that since Navitas students will be taught courses that have been reviewed by U of M academic departments and that those courses will be recognized by the U of M, then the deal should have been brought to the senate and board of governors for approval. Critics pointed out that the name of the private school violates the University of Manitoba Act, which prohibits any school, college or any other institution of learning from using the word as part of its name. A spokeswoman for the provincial department of Advanced Education said senior department staff were at this afternoon senate meeting and not able to comment on the dispute.

Nike Kobe 9 EM White Gold,If Regal Solo, a 6 year old gelding, wins the Maryland Million Sprint Saturday afternoon at Laurel Park, he would become the first horse to win three different Million races."He's versatile," his trainer Damon Dilodovico said Wednesday. "He's push button when his feet are good. And I've always thought he was better at short distances than long." In 2007 the son of 1996 Preakness winner Louis Quatorze won the Million Nursery for 2 year olds over 6 furlongs. Last year, he won the 1 1/8th mile Million Classic. This year, he's entered in the Sprint with nine other horses, who will compete over a 6 furlong distance. "I'm glad to see him back," said Allen Murray, who bred the horse and won nearly $170,000 with him, before losing him in a $40,000 claiming race to Alvin Lapidus. "My trainer had thought he wasn't quite as good as he had been, and we put him in the claimer to get him some work. We didn want him to be claimed and we didn think he would be for a $40,000 tag." But he was, because Lapidus and his trainer Damon Dilodovico had had their eyes on him for some time. "We were looking at him for these Maryland Million races," said Dilodovico, who claimed the horse in August 2009. "He was in our cross hairs. And though he has been lightly raced, he's done well for us." And he comes into Saturday's race well respected, despite being sidelined for 12 months. The Morning Line odds have Regal Solo (3 1) third in a tight battle with favorite Jack On the Rocks (5 2) and Sloane Ranger (7 2). Murray said people ask him about losing Regal Solo in a claiming race, and said he always has his reply ready. "I point out Regal Solo won the race from which he was claimed and that paid $20,000," said Murray, who will have Regal Solo's full brother Sun Song in Saturday's Nursery. "We got that $20,000 and then we got $40,000 from the claim. Sixty thousand dollars is a lot of money to put in your bank account. I was sorry I lost him and glad to have the money. Afterward, I was glad he continued to do well for his new owner." Regal Solo has won about $200,000 since going to Dilodovico's barn. He won three times after being claimed and finished out of the money just once. Included in his wins were Laurel's Jennings Handicap in 2009 and the Classic last October. Then came the foot trouble. "We've had him close to being ready to come back a number of times, including just before Preakness week," Dilodovico said. "But something always showed up, like a quarter crack. We had a hard time getting in front of his problems. We even took him to see Ian McKinlay." McKinlay, who worked with Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Big Brown during his Triple Crown season, is recognized as the industry's foremost foot specialist. "We're finally in a period now where we're in front of the problem," Dilodovico said. "I'm not saying it all behind him. We're not past it, because these kinds of issues stick around. But we're happy where he is now. He's had a good month coming in.".
Buy Authentic Cheap Nike Kobe 9 EM White Gold,Air Jordan 5 Retro Quai 54 White To some people, making a flower arrangement without floral foam and waterproof, stretchable floral tape is like trying to cook a gourmet meal over a campfire rather than a modern range.Still, for those emergencies when floral foam and floral tape are not on hand, other materials can do the job. There may even be times when some of these other materials are more desirable than floral foam and floral tape.Chicken wire, pinholders, frogs, and Japanese fork sticks were used in flower arranging long before floral foam was invented. These still are handy to have around for use with or without floral foam. Chicken wire is especially helpful when used over floral foam to give extra support to heavy flowers like birds of paradise.Twigs and clippings from evergreen shrubbery also were commonly used in the past. The problem, though, with such organic materials is that they decompose, spoiling the water, which then clogs up the conducting tubes of fresh plant material. Furthermore, certain evergreens arbor vitae is one of them give off ethylene, which hastens the aging and decay of fresh flowers.Should you find yourself the happy, but surprised, recipient of a bouquet of flowers and have no floral foam with which to make an arrangement, look around the house for possible substitutions.Plastic containers, cut off milk cartons, Styrofoam cups, or plastic egg cartons can be poked with holes and turned upside down in a container. Plastic berry baskets turned upside down also might do the trick. A potato poked with holes will support plant stems and also ballast the container. Marbles, gravel, or sand might work, although dust from the latter two might clog the stems.In a pinch almost any kind of tape you have around the house will hold floral foam or other anchoring material in place. Narrow strips of electrical tape, masking tape, adhesive tape, freezer tape, or any waterproof vinyl tape will do. Cellophane tape is not a good choice. It is brittle and is easily loosened by moisture. Try wire or string instead.Foil and Floral FoamWith a little imagination, flowers can be used almost anywhere. An easy way to use flowers or foliage in unexpected, unconventional places is to use foil and floral foam. Foil covered floral foam is ideal when you don't want water to spill or leak.Arrangements in odd shaped containers, such as an old shoe or a straw hat, or even arrangements in a non container, such a combination of flowers and foliage with a pile of fruit on a tray, are easy with foil covered floral foam.A wicker basket filled with cuttings and a few flowers travels easily and can be attractive anywhere. Floral foam can be cut to fit any container. Then, the floral foam can be covered with foil to keep the water where you want it with the flowers. If you pull the sides of the foil away from the floral foam in a couple of spots, it will be easier to add water.If flowers are short stemmed, you can add height to your arrangement by inserting the short flowers into hollow stems such as those of a gladiolus or day lily, which are then inserted into the floral foam. By arranging the other flowers and foliage carefully, the joint won't show.Fun flower arrangements, without fretting, are possible when using foil and floral foam.Cuttings That "Bloom"Fresh flowers also are a delightful way to perk up cuttings from your plants, making them pleasing decorative accents while they are rooting.Short stemmed flowers from your garden or a retailer, or leftover flowers from a bouquet can simply be placed with cuttings in a glass of water or a bud vase.Floral foam also is excellent for this purpose. It works especially well with ivy, pachysandra, and sedums, as well as common indoor plant material such as coleus, Swedish ivy, and Wandering Jew.When using floral foam for bouquets of cuttings and flowers, the same preservative that helps keep the flowers fresh also provides some protection against bacteria for the cuttings.Once they have rooted, cuttings can be gently pulled from the foam or the foam can be broken apart to free the roots. If the roots have grown deeply into the foam, break away as much as possible and then pot up the remaining foam with the cutting.
