Free market economy and free-market University

December 1, 2009

Cambodia was drawn into the "free market" after the radical agreement in Paris on 23 Done in October 1991. And these "humanitarian trend is" of course, mostly accepted by Cambodians. From this, Cambodia has boosted integration into the regional and international communities their economies.

Education is today one of the most or probably the most urgent agenda of the Cambodian people and the government. I myself and most of the Cambodian people, rich and poor,formed, showing low levels of education and illiteracy, negative perceptions of mushrooming universities in Cambodia.

I've seen that almost all the universities do not play like the "human resource developers", it seems like the commercial competition, profit-oriented. " University can play the role of 'for-profit entity? " It would be too dangerous for the university to turn in the profit-oriented businesses, because the whole nation wouldsuffer in the future. Do in this short article, I do not want my content from the presentation and analysis of existing or imminent disadvantages that the universities will lead to profit-oriented view enlarge.

Many apparent problems were seen and complaints by the students were ubiquitously heard, unemployment, not quality of training, lack of clear academic curriculum. So who or what those problems are created. Are universities, which play role of profitdramatically, to the problems mentioned above. Obviously, we see that almost all the sectors that have economic, political, social and analyzed by the international movement of people or institutions. And why is that? Universities are not convinced that the production of human resources, replacing those of foreigners.

I see that there are two possibilities, unemployment is rising in Cambodia;

1. Truly educated people are not with an opportunity to express their skills and provided

2.Although the vacancy is available, we did not occupy the qualified persons.

I have no analytical resolution to the chaos, because I keep this article short and simple like. But I'm only one point command: improving the quality of universities is the first step, and especially from all the other improvements and we'll see how it will always continue. Under Article 6 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR),Everyone has a right to work and earn a living, not just the ICESCR, Cambodian Constitution and other international instruments that have entered Cambodia, guaranteed to do the same and self-employment is entitled, but the quality and the possibility of the problem in Cambodia, as the pursuit of this international instrument is very difficult to achieve.

"Quality is everything, but that's all plotted on the willingness and the government, of course, is thatWillingness to provoke "(Coined by Lay Vicheka, 2005).

The Great Debaters – Oprah & Denzel Bring Black History to the College Campus & University

November 5, 2009

"Debate is combat, but the weapons are words." A memorable quote from The Great Debaters produced by Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Productions and the Academy directed by award winning actor Denzel Washington.

"You must destroy the enemy – not only verbally but also physically." So said controversial debate coach Melvin Tolson at Wiley College in East Texas almost three quarters of the century before us.

"I'm here to help you and keep your righteous mind." Professor Tolson told his debateTeam that lost only one contest in 75 debates over 15 years.

Wiley College, the first accredited historically black college disturb west of the Mississippi, the impossible in 1935 by way of the debate team, the renowned team at the University of Southern California and Harvard University.

Undoubtedly, intelligence has much more to do with determination and preparation as a skin color. The film shows Debaters The true strength does not need violence whenit can exert strong influence and articulate with the knowledge heartfelt expression.

As Black History Month approaches, we must honestly recognize African-Americans have always led the way and at the tip of the spear has been penetrated by evil and injustice. Without confronting Africans out against injustice, there would be no human and civil rights in America.

In this hour, more than ever, African Americans must fight for the people of all colors, are being exploited and disenfranchised.The voice of African Americans in our country must be heard once more in order to confront injustice! We can never correct what we refuse to confront, too.

Professor Tolson, whom the movie "The Great Debaters has been evaluated, an accomplished poet and provocateur, passionately and prophetically with fire in his eyes, raised his voice to speak of his generation.

Our nation is in need again, not only the inspiration but the confrontation of leadership. Those profiting from the Government have decided toTo serve the nation instead of the corporation and not we, the people. Therefore, we have the people who are brave and bold arise and will need to define a voice of conscience, and the re-processing of the identity of America.

We can no longer engage people through patriotic rhetoric and flag waving disappointed politicians who ignore harms our national security and unnecessarily send our troops into his way to the imperial wars with people we know nothing to fight and have done us no harm at all . We can no longeras a nation to demonize other peoples and nations, and called us good and pious.

This self-righteousness is hellishly fast and heading to a day of reckoning with the global community and international economy. Consequently, America and its currency are rapidly losing international influence and credibility.

May God the Almighty increase our voice to the multinational media corporations that are trying to influence the minds and fight the Americans. By the way, whatis America? What values are we or have we forgotten all about them rather win and win "the war – whatever that means. There are no winners in war, only losers and drug addicts.

We must once again demanding a national debate each and every person in the university and college campus of America is an open forum, town hall debate and intellectual dialogue on key issues paves the way for our national debate destruction orReformation.

Not only the dollar to an all-time low, so is America's international credibility.

The Americans, flattered and offer in their nationalism, but what we need is to be questioned. If America is not self-aware and brutally honest with themselves, their tendency to live in their past glory, it will end.

Personal soul searching and national political assessment is what we as a country need most. If with public opinion in disagreementpublic policy, we the people can not remain silent. The Great Debaters, speakers and authors have historically always came through the darkness to light and lighting in the eyes of the people to open.

In fact, in line with the words of The Great Debaters: "The time for justice is always now!"

Keep crying aloud and spare not until justice flows like a mighty stream, and justice done enough!

October 12, 2009

While Louisvlle attending a seminar on contemporary American literature and touring various places of cultural interest of the University Library was one of those sites that had a never fading impression left me, not only because of its unique architectural plan, but for other ineffable qualities that study it a perfect place for quiet and serene. My first visit was as the director of our program took us here for inclusion in the use of computers and the Internet inLiterature research. The room we were in the class was fully equipped with computers, all led more than fifty tables for students and a master monitor for the teacher. Many other areas, including the state of the art auditorium was equally well equipped.

I went through the library on many other occasions. But what was most important, when on the road from the university post office, the idea came to me the inclusion of the beautiful view of the campus inImages as well as in the head and that was the Ekstrom Library, which I represented the focal point of all other libraries from different ends of the sprawling campus spread.

I have two views of the building and I was still gaping in surprise especially at the enchanting splendor of the facade with the readers of a combination of eating and relaxing. I was particularly struck by its inviting, comfortable and open space is teeming with students and bustling with activity, a beautiful terraceequipped with furniture, warm with pleasant views of lush inviting outdoor space, the use of the favorable climatic conditions here, to enjoy the nature. Taking advantage of the usually mild weather Kentucky with her big, inviting green spaces, students can study or just catch a break in a series of outdoor tables on the terrace. On fine days, there are few better places to study, and certainly makes for an inviting entry

The library staff to identify, evaluate and select materials developed meet different formats in collections, the needs of users. They also apply to technology, research and educational innovations for improving services and access to traditional and electronic collections.

Rapid expansion in equities, has rapid technological progress, including the introduction of an activated robotic retrieval system moreBooks, as they are kept in the library halls in subjects that are accessible from computers on request searching stacked. The system provides the library space for more than three million volumes. The less frequently used volumes are loaded into the system, and students can still book in the stacks area in the old building of the library. Books in the RRS are as such in MINERVA, identifies the library catalog. To request items, patrons click on a live "request" button on the screen,and then a robot crane has been sent to find the element in the moving frames of steel tanks holding books and magazines, which selects the robot arm, gripper, and delivers the appropriate container to a pickup station where a library attendant the exact location attracts and supplies to the circulation desk within minutes. The entire process, which I saw myself only takes a few minutes and can be many simultaneous requests.

After the RRS, told me that also saves the library the cost of a courierService and the additional library staff needed to operate a remote storage facility. The Ekstrom Library RRS characterized how clever they are constructed in the central planning of the new addition. With many windows on the system, students can literally stand at the circulation desk, make a request, and actually see, fill the system to its shape watching it work, almost serve as a piece of the 21 Century, a source book of nature, whizzing and whirring volumes on the windows. In all, theEkstrom also a powerful 42,500 square meters, has space for the library

It was only founded in Kentucky, Library Department, which assumed Evelyn J. Schneider Endowed Chair for scientific communication through the estate of a longtime University Library and the State Research Challenge Trust Fund. The first chair holder, Dwayne K. Butler is a highly regarded expert on copyright law, especially that the education and electronic resources.

Oversight of all these developments over the last eleven years has beena charismatic, energetic, brilliant and visionary woman, Prof. Hannnelorewery Rader, dean of libraries, which I had the privilege to speak. Prof radar Louisville brought a wealth of experience. For seventeen years she was managing the Cleveland and University of Wisconsin Libraries and held various positions at Eastern Michigan University for nearly twelve years. She has always written in their area and participated in many conferences. She was eventually appointed in 1999Outstanding Academic Research Librarian.

Through innovative ideas, Dr. advanced radar, its drive and direction together with the collection of the library, updated resources, a welcoming environment, helpful and innovative library staff and academic library use and exceeding a 60 percent has captured the 2 million dollars per year. One of their striking innovations is the Tulip coffee shop in the spacious lobby, where readers enjoy tasty sandwiches and enjoyed roles withCups of tea, coffee, orange juice or Coke, as they read or browse through the Internet. The Tulip Tree Café has become so popular that it may soon need to start at another cashier.

Louisville offers one of the nation's most comprehensive information literacy programs. Louisville Libraries are not just places of research, but now how other libraries are places of active teaching.
According to Prof radar, is their philosophy, do not usually provide for the needs-traditionalScholarship mostly adults of different ages and non-residential buildings for more pleasant atmosphere and to facilitate the procedures for accessing information. This explains their introduction of the snack bar and the constant restructuring and renovation of the premises.

Was "We wanted a space where students explore and learn, but also to forge links. … We wanted to offer a library, space for all these things," she said, "Our students are urban, many are part time –and not live on campus. We want them to be on campus. "To achieve this, she says she fully their library Reimagined for the 21st century.

"Space was a problem," says Rader. "We had no space for our materials, and that's pretty much a problem for most academic libraries."
