Universities And Colleges Eye Esports As Potential Market In Recruiting Students And Boost Development

Sports enthusiasts wouldn’t bat an eye over the construction of the biggest football stadium in the world, or the largest open track field for various sporting events worldwide. However, universities have mixed responses regarding the University of Akron’s plan to build the largest esports facility in the world.

 

Academic, Social, and Professional Development

According to Matthew J. Wilson, former president of the University of Akron, the students will greatly benefit from the creation of an esports program. In a university news release back last year, he says that the move will attract top students to be part of their university, and provide innovative avenues for students to develop professionally, academically, and socially. The university further explains that the development would cost only up to $750,000, which is just a small portion of what was used in the construction of the biggest football stadium in the world, as well as other sports facilities.

 

Games over Academics?

The plan, however, has faced some criticisms as Ohio AAUP president John T. McNay says in his letter to the university, saying that it is as if Akron is saying that they are bored with education, so they’d rather play games instead.

 

The letter further says that the move would seem as if the university is equating playing games with educating Ohio students and preparing them for their lives and careers outside the academe. McNay adds that it shows a lack of judgement on Akron’s part, and is a violation of trust that was given to them in protecting and improving the university according to its best interest.

 

Support from other Universities

Despite the criticisms, Akron is determined to push through with the plan. They have also received support from other universities, such as the Southern New Hampshire University, whose students will be given the chance to try out for the esports program this autumn.

 

National Association of Collegiate Esports

According to the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE), these universities aren’t alone in the plan either, as there are more than 80 schools in Canada and the United States that already have competitive gaming programs. Colleges associated to the said program is said to have devoted $9 million for gaming scholarships and other programs for financial assistance to said gamers.

Australia Looking For More Plumbers And Electricians

Do you ever wonder how much plumbers in Brisbane are earning? You might be surprised to know that their pay rates are higher than other employment because tradespeople continue to be on high demand in the country. This is the reason why the country is currently skilled workers from South Africa because there is a shortage for qualified electricians and plumbers. The workers can apply under the skilled migration visa and the amount they will be earning is more than what they will be able in their own country.

Sable International published that electricians in less developed nations such as South Africa only earn about R37.02 to R153 as an hourly rate. In order to get a higher pay scale, these qualified workers must possess other skills such as automation, plant maintenance and routing and switching.

In the case of plumbers, they are earning a pay rate of R20 with R117 as the highest for an hour of work. While qualified workers that are employed within residential settings,, water treatment facilities, factories and power plants are able to earn more because they are considered to be master plumbers.

These figures are quite far from the current rate of tradespeoeple in Australia. For instance, electricians earn an average hourly rate of AUD 75.71 which is equal to R748.55 while plumbers get an hourly average rate of AUD 83.04 or equivalent to R821.02 in local currency. The data was provided by ServiceSeeking, a service hiring portal in Australia.

Sable added that demand continues to increase therefore it is only expected that the pay will also continue to rise. For electricians, the wage has already increased by 4.25 per cent per hour while plumbers have experienced a 3.1 per cent increase on their hourly wage.

Sable International said that the main reason for the high demand is the slow conversion of rural areas into urban. Therefore they are always looking for plumbers in Brisbane in order to continue the development of the areas that are in the regional parts of Australia.

Actress Jennifer Garner Seen Out With Family After Helping Ben Affleck Check Into A Malibu Luxury Rehab

Posted by on Sep 14, 2018 in Business | Comments Off on Actress Jennifer Garner Seen Out With Family After Helping Ben Affleck Check Into A Malibu Luxury Rehab

A few weeks ago, actress Jennifer Garner helped her estranged husband 45-year-old actor Ben Affleck to check into a Malibu luxury rehab in his efforts to stay sober. Now, the actress, and Ben Affleck’s brother Casey has released a statement saying that the actor is doing great and is recovering well at the center.

Out and About

On the same day, the actress showed off the results of her efforts to stay fit and healthy by sporting a tank top in Los Angeles. She was with two of her three children– Seraphina, aged 9, and Samuel, 7– out with Ben. Ben Affleck returned from the Malibu luxury rehab for a quick home visit, and was spotted that same week with his girlfriend 22-year old Shauna Sexton.

All Natural

Out with her family, the actress was seen wearing a tank top, jeans, sneakers, a grey sweater, and a purse. She was not wearing any makeup that day, with her hair pulled in a ponytail, paired with large sunglasses.

About Ben

The actor, on the other hand, was seen on his way to his Pacific Palisades home. He was wearing a T-shirt and a hoodie paired with slacks and blue sneakers. He had shorter hair now with stubbly grey beard.

His brother Casey spoke with Entertainment Tonight. During the Toronto International Film Festival, The Old Man and the Gun actor had great news regarding his brother. He says his brother has been doing great at the center, recovering. This is a stark difference from what sources have explained, saying that prior to his admission at the center, Ben Affleck had been drinking for days, haven’t showered and barely eaten anything. This was before Jennifer Garner convinced him to get into rehab.

The actress explained that talking Ben into rehabilitation wasn’t difficult either. He was very cooperative, and wanted to go as well. Late August, she arrived at Ben’s home with a bible and a lawyer after seeing Ben’s pictures where the actor was seen with delivery bottles in beer boxes. Jennifer seems to be keeping the family intact as well. One Sunday, she was seen taking Ben’s mother Christine to church.
