Huffington Post: San Francisco-The Hardest City To Be Poor (Or Middle Class)

Huffington Post: San Francisco-The Hardest City To Be Poor (Or Middle Class) | USF in the News | Scoop.it

In front of the glowing new offices of Twitter on the edge of the Tenderloin, I watch the programmer step over the soiled, jean-clad legs of the homeless man lying on the sidewalk. As I descend into the underground BART station at Civic Center, I see a tired young woman who looks like a high school English teacher. Her heavy satchel is stuffed with essays as she stands in line for her 90-minute return commute to more affordable housing in Concord, 30 miles to the east. Her salary falls woefully short of what would afford her rent for a modest San Francisco apartment.

CNN: Training with America's 'synchro' hopefuls

CNN: Training with America's 'synchro' hopefuls | USF in the News | Scoop.it

Anita Alvarez and Mariya Koroleva walk up to the edge of the pool.

They strike a pose in their glittering costumes, hair slicked back in a tight bun. Rhythmic music begins to play, and they dive into the water.
 
For the next three minutes, Alvarez and Koroleva perform a routine that combines the gracefulness of a ballet dancer, the flexibility of an acrobat and the power of a swimmer -- all while moving together in perfect unity.

...

Synchronized swimming is not a high-profile Olympic sport, and Guerrucci said its athletes don't get as many sponsorships and endorsements as others. So it often requires hard work outside the training facility, too. Koroleva, who just finished her master's degree at the University of San Francisco, is also working several hours a week at a retail sport company, Guerrucci said.

Associated Press: In tumultuous summer, young Americans in a dour mood

Associated Press: In tumultuous summer, young Americans in a dour mood | USF in the News | Scoop.it

In a summer of political and racial tumult, young Americans are in a dour mood: pessimistic about the fairness of their economic system, questioning the greatness of the United States and deeply skeptical of the way the nation picks its leaders. A new poll of young people between the ages of 18 and 30 finds that an overwhelming 90 percent think the two-party political system has real — though fixable — problems or that it is "seriously broken."

...

Overall, 54 percent said that only a few people at the top have a chance to get ahead, while the remainder said that anyone can rise economically. Those figures were consistent for all races and ethnicities.

 

Matthew Monnot, an assistant professor at the University of San Francisco School of Management, said wages haven't grown for decades and have, in fact, decreased for lower-paid professions while increasing dramatically for those at the top.

 

"It's been completely stagnant," Monnot said, "so for the people you're surveying, their entire life span has been that of the average worker not having any wage increase." [via @AP]

J. The Jewish News Weekly of Northern California: New textbook by USF professor an introduction to ‘Judaisms’

J. The Jewish News Weekly of Northern California: New textbook by USF professor an introduction to ‘Judaisms’ | USF in the News | Scoop.it

Bay Area Jews understand that what is often called “the Jewish community” is really a community of communities, united by some things but distinctively different in so many ways.

Aaron Hahn Tapper, an associate professor in Jewish studies at the University of San Francisco, makes that understanding the central argument of his new textbook, “Judaisms.”

 

Of the subtly provocative title, he says, “It’s simple and it gets the idea across in as few words as possible.” And his idea is this: That the unity many Jews perceive in their community and in Jewish history, a story in which Judaism is recognizable in every place and at every stage of history, is just plain wrong.

National Public Radio (NPR): Hey, [Insert Name Here], Check Out These Campaign Fundraising Emails

National Public Radio (NPR): Hey, [Insert Name Here], Check Out These Campaign Fundraising Emails | USF in the News | Scoop.it

Email campaign fundraising is tricky. How do you avoid the dreaded spam folder? Should you ask for a lot or a little? Should you sound urgent or casual?

 

There is definitely a method to the madness of sending out the right email. Candidates painstakingly test every detail of an email ahead of time to determine which is the most effective.

 

This idea isn't new — it's a move straight from President Obama's 2008 and 2012 campaigns.

 

"The Obama campaign is absolutely viewed as an innovator in this way," says Ken Goldstein, a professor of politics at the University of San Francisco. "Obama in '08 and '12, both in emails and texts, discovered it was a way to communicate in familiar and personal terms."

 

The 2012 campaign is famous for emails with strange subject lines, like the simple yet confusing "Hey" and the provocative "Are You Awake?" email, which calls to mind a different version of that question: the "U up?" popular in dorm rooms nationwide. [via @NPR]

The Sacramento Bee: Sacramento devotes $10 million to high-tech firms, but plan faces risks

The Sacramento Bee: Sacramento devotes $10 million to high-tech firms, but plan faces risks | USF in the News | Scoop.it

When the City Council approved a $10 million fund for high-tech investments last month, Sacramento joined a handful of municipalities across the country hoping to buy their way into the economy of the future with public money.

 

Philadelphia, Portland, Ore., – and now Sacramento – don’t expect to turn themselves into the next Silicon Valley. But the idea is to leverage taxpayer dollars to spark innovation specific to local industries, creating a high-tech hub uniquely tied to the region.

...

Mark Cannice, department chair and professor of entrepreneurship and innovation with the University of San Francisco School of Management, said that building a Sacramento-based venture capital industry would be a “key aspect” of economic change because such funders typically prefer that companies are geographically close so they can take a “hands-on approach.”

 

Having a locally based venture capital industry “really creates long-term sustainability of growth in a region,” he said.

San Francisco Chronicle: San Francisco has better alternatives to Teach for America | USF in the News | Scoop.it

The San Francisco Unified School District has a number of homegrown teacher preparation programs, including the San Francisco Teacher Residency, which has increased by 20 teachers this year. A collaboration with the University of San Francisco, Stanford University and the United Educators of San Francisco, the residency provides a yearlong classroom apprenticeship with a master teacher, master’s degree coursework, three years of coaching, and a guaranteed job in the school district upon completion. The five-year retention rate of residency program graduates is four times higher than for Teach for America corp members, and their preparation is nearly 10 times longer.

Craigslist founder Craig Newmark has donated $50,000 to the University of San Francisco's "USF in D.C." program, which is "dedicated to inspiring and preparing students for careers of ethical public service," the university said Thursday.

 

The money will be distributed among 10 students, with each receiving $5,000 for the 2016-2017 academic year. Students participating in USF in D.C. must complete a full-time internship. Some of these internships include positions with the White House Office of Public Engagement, the U.S. Department of Education and the Sierra Club. [via @CNET]

VICE Sports: Is the NCAA Undermining Title IX? 

VICE Sports: Is the NCAA Undermining Title IX?  | USF in the News | Scoop.it

Given that the NCAA claims a core commitment to "the supporting role that intercollegiate athletics plays in the higher education mission" as well as "an inclusive culture that fosters equitable participation for student-athletes," why does the association make it harder for its member schools to hand out financial aid to athletes? Why does it enforce scholarship limits in the first place?

...

Again, the NCAA has argued that scholarship caps are necessary to preserve competitive balance. This isn't necessarily true, or at least not for football: a report by economist Dan Rascher filed in the Jenkins v. NCAA lawsuit, an antitrust case challenging the association's amateurism rules, has found that there was no significant change in the sport's competitive balance after the implementation of limits. And there's little evidence it holds true for women's sports, either: only six different women's basketball teams have won a national championship since 2000.

 

"An impartial observer would likely conclude that even with the emphasis given and number of attempts to legislate it across a broad spectrum of institutions, 'competitive equity' has failed," Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby has said, according to Rascher's report.

The Washington Post: Race trumps income when it comes to creating a diverse college campus

The Washington Post: Race trumps income when it comes to creating a diverse college campus | USF in the News | Scoop.it

Higher education expert Donald E. Heller helped the legal team defending Michigan’s use of affirmative action. Heller, who is now the provost and vice president at the University of San Francisco, shared his thoughts on Thursday’s historic vote.

 

By Donald E. Heller

On Thursday morning, the Supreme Court announced its long-awaited decision in the case of Fisher v. University of Texas. Higher education leaders around the country have been waiting to see if the nation’s highest court would uphold the right of public universities to use race-based affirmative action in their admissions processes. Much to their relief, the court found in favor of the University of Texas, thus affirming its earlier rulings that affirmative action was legal.

 

In 2007, Abigail Fisher applied for admission to the University of Texas at Austin, the state’s public flagship university. Fisher, a white woman, was denied admission, and in 2008 filed suit against the university alleging that the university discriminated against her because it took the race of applicants into account in its admission process.

 

The university prevailed in the original federal trial, the court finding that the university’s use of affirmative action was legal under the precedent set by the Supreme Court in Grutter v. Bollinger, in which the court found that the University of Michigan’s use of race in law school admissions was acceptable under the Equal Protection Clause of the constitution. Fisher and her team appealed the trial court’s verdict, and after an earlier visit to the Supreme Court and then back to the appellate court, Thursday’s decision in support of the University of Texas effectively ends the case for Fisher.

Global Times: A growing number of foreign universities are starting to accept gaokao scores for admission

Global Times: A growing number of foreign universities are starting to accept gaokao scores for admission | USF in the News | Scoop.it

Chen Yin, an 18-year-old girl from Beijing, was a bit disappointed last year when the national college entrance examination orgaokao scores were announced. Despite scoring 40 points higher than the enrollment threshold for top universities, Chen still didn't get into her first choice: a top university in Beijing.

She was mentally preparing to attend her second choice, a university in Chongqing, when she heard that the University of San Francisco (USF) had a gaokao-based early admission program for Chinese students, like her, who scored above the enrollment threshold. Chen immediately applied, and one week after the interview, she got an offer. The rest was history.

...

This year is USF's second year of accepting gaokao scores for university admission. The school is the second university in the US, after the Illinois Institute of Technology, to introduce a gaokao-based early admission program.

Stanley D. Nel, vice president of international relations at USF with responsibility for China admissions, said the school drew from Australia's evaluation process to create USF's gaokao admission program.

But he said that besides accepting gaokao scores, they also try interview process instead of requiring IELTS (International English Language Testing System) scores, which is required by Australian universities.

"It is simply not possible to do well in an open-ended, one-on-one, face-to-face interview with an English professor unless one actually has good English proficiency. Students' gaokao scores and in-person interview performance help examiners evaluate their abilities," said Nel. [via @globaltimesnews]

The San Francisco Chronicle: As Twitch streams RNC, commentary runs from thoughtful to snarky

The San Francisco Chronicle: As Twitch streams RNC, commentary runs from thoughtful to snarky | USF in the News | Scoop.it

The worlds of politics and video-game players came together Monday in an unusual experiment.

 

The San Francisco online company Twitch, which attracts more than 100 million monthly viewers, began streaming the official live video feed from the Republican National Convention, offering Twitch members who normally stream video of themselves playing games the ability to rebroadcast the video with their own colorful commentary.

 

Ken Goldstein, a University of San Francisco professor of politics, said he doesn’t believe Twitch viewers are going to be tuning in to the conventions in droves, especially because voters who have already made up their minds won’t be swayed by watching one convention over the other.

 

“Political junkies who really want to see much more inside of the convention will be interested,” Goldstein said. “The reasons why people who use Twitch didn’t watch conventions in the past weren’t because it wasn’t on Twitch. You’ll see more people using Twitch to avoid the conventions than to consume the conventions.”

 

...

Keally McBride, another professor of politics at USF, said the Millennial generation might pay attention because this month’s conventions might be the most “highly entertaining” conventions in years.

 

But instead of watching the streams from the inside, she expects people might seek videos on YouTube and other sources on the action outside the convention halls, especially with “the battle lines” drawn in Cleveland.

 

“That’s where a lot of the news will actually come from,” she said. [via @SFGate]

Inside Higher Ed: Foundering Finances, the Faculty Role: a Survey of Business Officers

Inside Higher Ed: Foundering Finances, the Faculty Role: a Survey of Business Officers | USF in the News | Scoop.it

More campus business officers are convinced that higher education finances are in a crisis, but a new survey raises questions over whether and how they are involving faculty members as they seek a way forward.

...

“There often aren’t processes that bring [faculty members] into a meaningful role in collegewide budget decisions,” said Donald Heller, provost and vice president of academic affairs at the University of San Francisco and a researcher who studies higher education finance.

 

“You can’t separate financial issues from academic issues at most institutions, but the fact of the matter is relatively few faculty members have an interest in the broader financial issues at an institution.”

 

Ultimately, the question becomes how much faculty are involved and in which issues, Heller said.

“It’s always a balancing act,” Heller said. “For example, if you’re looking at the issue of faculty compensation and the impact that has on your budget, then of course faculty are going to be much more involved.” [via @insidehighered]

University of San Francisco's insight:

Donald E. Heller is Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs and a professor of education at the University of San Francisco. He is responsible for the university’s five schools, libraries, academic affairs, student life, enrollment management, online programs, international relations, and diversity and community outreach for the university’s 10,800 students, 1,200 faculty, and 1,000 staff.

San Jose Mercury News: Bay Area comes to grips with growing racial divide after Dallas police shootings

San Jose Mercury News: Bay Area comes to grips with growing racial divide after Dallas police shootings | USF in the News | Scoop.it

In 68 hours this week, America changed.

 

The country, simmering under the heat of a chaotic presidential race and the tension of increasingly volatile race relations, is reeling after a sniper in Dallas struck down five white police officers and police in Louisiana and Minnesota killed two black men -- all in 68 hours.

 

The Bay Area is used to tumult, but what grips the country now is shaking us all: Where do we go from here?

 

James Taylor fears the answer. "This has put us on the precipice ... of more chaos and a return to the violence we saw in the 1960s," said Taylor, who is the director of the African-American studies program at the University of San Francisco.

[via @mercnews]

USF Politics Professor & Director of the African American Studies Program, James Lance Taylor, is author of the book Black Nationalism in the United States: From Malcolm X to Barack Obama, which earned 2011 "Outstanding Academic Title" - Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries (January 2012).

The Washington Post: What Syracuse’s hire of an ESPN executive tells us about college sports

The Washington Post: What Syracuse’s hire of an ESPN executive tells us about college sports | USF in the News | Scoop.it

A dozen years ago, the athletic director at Syracuse was a gray-haired, cardigan-wearing, Winston-smoking man named Jake Crouthamel. The job he held immediately prior was head football coach at Dartmouth. Crouthamel’s tenure ended in 2005, which doesn’t seem that long ago. In the realm of college sports, it might as well be eons. That was when sports people ran athletic departments, because the most prominent feature of college sports was sports.

 

Since Crouthamel’s retirement in 2005, Syracuse employed two athletic directors, both of whom had climbed sports administration rungs. The man they chose to succeed them aptly reflects the state of college sports: Until Wednesday afternoon, John Wildhack was ESPN’s Executive Vice President for Production and Programming.

...

Professor Dan Rascher, the director of the sport management program at the University of San Francisco, described the trend as temporary in a unique way. The professionalization of college sports is moving faster than the rate at which traditional administrators can be trained in the new expertise required to run the small corporations athletic departments have become. But in time, perhaps the span of a few years, traditional administrators will be people like Wildhack, or at least they will have been trained up through the ranks to develop his business-forward skill-set.

San Jose Mercury News: Uber battling more than 70 lawsuits in federal courts

San Jose Mercury News: Uber battling more than 70 lawsuits in federal courts | USF in the News | Scoop.it

The past few months have been good to Uber -- the world's most valuable startup raised a record-breaking $3.5 billion in June and in April escaped a high-profile trial that threatened to upend its entire business model.

...

The ride-booking platform announced public settlements in at least six cases during the past year, agreeing to shell out up to $163 million. Those deals seem to represent a shift for the company, which originally made a show of fighting litigation tooth and nail, said Joshua Davis, associate dean for academic affairs at the University of San Francisco School of Law.

 

"One possibility is that you're seeing a kind of maturing of the company in a way," he said. "That it is going from sort of a cowboy mentality, if you will, to more of the attitude of an established company."

University of San Francisco's insight:

Professor Joshua Paul Davis is the associate dean for academic affairs; in this role he oversees the law school's academic programs and is responsible for curricular and program developments and implementation. Davis focuses his scholarly research on complex litigation, ethics, and the interplay between the two. As director of the Center for Law and Ethics, he leads panels, organizes symposia, and undertakes research exploring these topics.

San Francisco Chronicle: 140 years ago, the lights were turned on in San Francisco for the first time

San Francisco Chronicle: 140 years ago, the lights were turned on in San Francisco for the first time | USF in the News | Scoop.it

July 4, 1876 was the grandest day San Francisco had ever seen.

...

At sunset, shopkeepers and businessmen lit thousands of candles and Chinese lanterns. As San Francisco gleamed with candlelight, a nighttime parade of 10,000 politicians and military figures began down Market Street. 

 

Above the procession on the roof of St. Ignatius Church, Father Joseph Neri pulled a lever. All along Market between Fourth and Fifth, "a stream of soft, mellow light" glowed from the lamps and reflectors strung from the church roof to the other side of the street. 

...

"Fr. Neri amplified the machine's magnets by running an electric current to them from the storage battery he had developed," USF historian Alan Ziajka writes in Lighting the City, Lighting the World: A History of the Sciences at the University of San Francisco. "He connected the machine to a 'lighthouse,' which was positioned on the roof of St. Ignatius College."

 

And then on July 4, 1876, he lit up San Francisco's streets for the first time. 

University of San Francisco's insight:

In 1869, he took a job at St. Ignatius College — today known as the University of San Francisco — where the next year, he became the chair of the natural science department.

Inside Philanthropy: What's the Founder of Craigslist Up to With His Philanthropy?

Inside Philanthropy: What's the Founder of Craigslist Up to With His Philanthropy? | USF in the News | Scoop.it

In his own quiet way, Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist, is among the more intriguing figures of the tech world. Not only has he never really joined the mad scramble for big wealth, Newmark never much changed the early formula of the classifieds website he founded back in 1995—which, some 20 years later, still very much looks like a site from the 1990s. 

...

Beyond that, I’ve learned a lot that can be applied to the common good and I’m doing that on this site. I don’t expect to be a “leader” with this thing. I’d rather be a builder. I’d like to build a way for people doing good work to connect, to learn from each other, protect each other, and then I want to get out of their way.

 

In that vein, Newmark recently donated $50,000 to fund scholarships at the University of San Francisco (USF). The funds will be awarded to students in the USF in D.C. program, which immerses them in "the unique political and social culture of the nation’s capital." USF in D.C. is a program operated by the University of San Francisco's Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good, which is dedicated to inspiring and preparing students for careers of ethical public service.

Selected students not only participate in internships, they also reside at the UC Washington Center, with like-minded students from other UC campuses, as well as University of Michigan, Notre Dame, and University of Pennsylvania. Faculty also hail from multiple schools.

Insider Higher Ed: Higher education cost adjustment under fire again

Insider Higher Ed: Higher education cost adjustment under fire again | USF in the News | Scoop.it

Critics are launching another salvo in a long-simmering debate over the underlying math used to gauge changes in higher education finances over time, arguing a cost-adjustment index used in a closely watched report obscures true trends in revenue.

At issue is the Higher Education Cost Adjustment, an inflationary index developed by the State Higher Education Executive Officers Association and used in its annual State Higher Education Finance report. The index was designed to estimate inflation in the costs that colleges and universities pay. But its critics say that by focusing on what institutions spend, rather than on what students pay, the adjustment is out of step with the rising costs students face -- and actually hides a slight upward trend in revenue per student at colleges and universities.

...

The index debate doesn’t seem to have translated into discussions within college and university business offices, however. It’s largely an academic argument, said Donald Heller, provost and vice president of academic affairs at the University of San Francisco.

 

Heller said he’s not aware of any university that sets its tuition based on cost indexes -- nor is he aware of the indexes playing a key role in state appropriation deliberations. He did not sound surprised, however, that the index issue was sparking more debate.

“Every now and then it pops up,” he said. “Generally, you have people in higher ed saying we need to use something other than the CPI because the CPI doesn’t really reflect our cost structure, things we spend money on. And then people on the other side of the debate say CPI makes more sense because when people go to pay for higher education, their lives are dictated by what they face when they have to buy things.”

The San Francisco Chronicle: Deadlock at Supreme Court blocks Obama’s immigration order

The San Francisco Chronicle: Deadlock at Supreme Court blocks Obama’s immigration order | USF in the News | Scoop.it

The U.S. Supreme Court’s inability Thursday to resolve the legality of President Obama’s executive order on immigration leaves nearly 5 million unauthorized immigrants, one-fourth of them Californians — mostly parents of U.S. citizens or legal residents — in limbo, at least until the court has a ninth justice.

...

But it’s still possible that an immigrant in one of those states, like California, will go to court and seek protection under Obama’s order by arguing that Hanen’s injunction applies only in the 26 states that filed suit, said Bill Ong Hing, a professor of immigration law at the University of San Francisco.

 

If high court rules

“I think there is a question whether he has the authority” to issue a nationwide injunction, Hing said, since the suit was not filed as a class action. But if the case winds up before a nine-member Supreme Court, he predicted, it will eventually rule that, in questions of deportation, “the president has authority to decide what enforcement priorities there are.” [via @sfgate]
