School of Social Work establishes student archive

first_imgUSC’s School of Social Work will begin maintaining an archive of exemplary student papers and research through a new partnership between the City University of Hong Kong and USC Libraries. The partnership is CityU’s first with a North American university.The schools hope the Outstanding Academic Papers by Students collection, will help preserve outstanding work by students, and give others permanent access to past work.CityU first introduced the project in 2004 as a means to help students learn efficient research and writing skills and instill a sense of academic integrity.“We’re proud to be a part of this wonderful project that raises the visibility of the quality work our students produce and provides long-term access to their research,” Cherry Short told USC News. Short is the assistant dean of global community initiatives for the School of Social Work.A committee of USC faculty members reviewed and submitted 10 papers authored by students in the social work graduate program. The review committee based their selections on the quality of research, writing, presentation and creativity.The collection of papers is published in a book and is also being preserved in USC’s digital library, where international researchers and students can access the selected works.As a reward for having their work chosen by the review committee, students received a certificate and copy of the published book at the Dean’s Recognition Ceremony on May 7.Erin Dowler, who wrote a paper evaluating a client support service within the Immigrants’ Rights Project at Public Counsel, was one of those recognized at the ceremony.“This project has made a very positive impact on my education seeing how my research paper has translated into useful knowledge, which can help others in my field in the U.S. and internationally,” she told USC News.Administrators for USC Libraries plan on branching out with the program and asking other schools on campus to create the same type of archive where exemplary work can serve as an additional resource for students.last_img read more

Football: Get to know Wisconsin’s next opponent, Troy

first_imgTroy University (1-1)Mascot: T-RoyNickname: TrojansLocation: Troy, AlabamaConference: Sun BeltSaturday will mark the first time Troy and Wisconsin have ever met on the football field.The Trojans have a first-year head coach in Neal Brown, who replaced longtime coach Larry Blakeney. Blakeney coached the Trojans for 24 years and led them to five straight conference titles from 2006 to 2010.Since then, Troy has seen little success on the field, compiling a 17-31 overall record in that timespan.The Trojans defeated Charleston Southern 44-16 last Saturday behind a two touchdown performance from senior running back Brandon Burks.Troy’s passing attack and the way it spreads the ball out poses a threat, Dave Aranda, Wisconsin defensive coordinator, said.“They make you nervous playing them, for sure,” Aranda said. “Those schemes, they make you work.”Tackling in open spaces will be key, Aranda said.The offensive look Troy presents will make it difficult for outside linebacker Joe Schobert to keep making plays behind the line of scrimmage. Schobert ranks seventh in the country in tackles for losses this season (five) and has recorded nine tackles, resulting in negative yards nine times in his last four games.Troy’s quarterback, Brandon Silvers, has thrown only three interceptions in 315 attempts in his career. The sophomore broke Sam Bradford’s record for completion percentage by a freshman last season at 70.5 percent.Wisconsin’s secondary depth will be challenged in Troy’s numerous four and five wide receiver sets. UW head coach Paul Chryst said the different style provides a unique style for the defense.“They will present some different challenges in the way they are running it, or we think that they are going to run it,” Chryst said. “That will be good for our defense. It will be a different challenge and a good challenge for us.”Saturday’s game informationWhen: 2:30 p.m. (CT)Where: Camp Randall Stadium.

Bet on Alfa demonstrates integrity commitment with IBIA membership

first_img EGBA calls for enhanced collaboration on consumer rights August 11, 2020 StumbleUpon IBIA: Australia has made no progress on safeguarding sports integrity   July 28, 2020 Bet on Alfa has become the latest sports betting operator to join the recently-rebranded International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA), joining the likes of Virgin Bet and the Bethard Group.Under the terms of its membership, Bet on Alfa will be able to both utilise the IBIA’s global monitoring and alert platform, as well as feed data into the platform in order to strengthen betting integrity.Frixos Constantinides, Director of Bet on Alfa, commented: “We are delighted to be the first Cypriot company joining this association. Betting corruption in sport is a growing threat to the business model of every operator. “Our company recognises the importance of protecting our customers and sporting events from betting-related fraud and to meeting high standards of social corporate responsibility. The International Betting Integrity Association is the leading global player on integrity for our sector and membership brings an important layer of protection for our markets. It is a clear statement of our commitment to meeting the threat of match-fixing.”The Cypriot-based operator has become the fourth new member of the integrity body since its rebranding from ESSA in June of this year. The duo will work alongside one another to monitor betting activity, in a bid to crackdown on betting-related corruption.Bet on Alfa will be represented in ‘high-level policy discussions’ by the IBIA while also gaining access to its monitoring and alert platform – an anti-corruption tool that detects and reports suspicious activity on its members’ betting markets. Khalid Ali, Secretary General of the International Betting Integrity Association, added: “Bet on Alfa is a leading operator in Cyprus and a very welcome addition to the association. Our alert platform benefits greatly from regional experts such as Bet on Alfa and its mix of retail and online operations provides additional value. “I am delighted at the association’s continuing growth and the recognition of responsible companies like Bet on Alfa of the importance of working with other operators collectively to defend regulated betting markets from corruption.” The deal continues the association’s membership growth, which now includes around 50 online and retail brands. The association has longstanding information-sharing partnerships with sports and gambling regulators to utilise its data and prosecute corruption, representing the sector at high-level policy discussion forums such as the IOC, United Nations, Council of Europe and European Commission.

TIU provisionally suspends Albina Khabibulina amid corruption concerns

first_img TIU suspends Antonis Kalaitzakis over betting breaches July 21, 2020 Related Articles Share Submit StumbleUpon Share Following an investigation by the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), Uzbekistani tennis player Albina Khabibulina has been provisionally suspended from professional tennis after being found to be in breach of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Programme.Khabibulina, who was suspended by independent Anti-corruption Hearing Officer (AHO) Prof Richard H. McLaren with immediate effect, was found to be in breach of Section 3 of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Programme.The ruling means that Khabibulina, who is currently ranked as 294 in WTA doubles, will be prohibited from competing in or attending any sanctioned tennis event organised or recognised by the governing bodies of the sport.Under section 3 of the Anti-Corruption Programme, the ruling details that a player may be provisionally suspended if the following conditions are satisfied: “a Covered Person has (i) failed to comply with a Demand or (ii) delayed or obstructed, without reasonable justification, compliance with a Demand or purported to comply with a Demand through the provision of any object or information that has been tampered with, damaged, disabled or otherwise altered from its original state;“(i) there is a likelihood that the Covered Person has committed a Corruption Offense punishable by permanent ineligibility; (ii) in the absence of a Provisional Suspension, the integrity of tennis would be undermined; and (iii) the harm resulting from the absence of a Provisional Suspension outweighs the hardship of the Provisional Suspension on the Covered Person.”Earlier this year, the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) issued a crack down on corruption in the sport after issuing a fine and a suspension to players found to be in contravention of regulations.Issuing a $51,250 (£41,000) fine to former world No 50 Anna Tatishvili and a nine month suspension to German tennis player Osman Torski, the TIU focused upon enforcing the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP).
