Iranian minister sacked after Oxford forgery

Posted on by

first_imgIran’s parliament has voted to sack Ali Kordan after he admitted that his Oxford degree in Law was forged.According to reports 188 MPs, both conservatives and moderates, out of a total of 247, voted to remove Kordan from office.Now Iran’s former Interior Minister, Kordan came to international attention in August when Oxford University released an official statement denying that Mr Kordan had ever received a Law degree from the institution.Copies of the degree were later released onto the internet via Iranian political websites and the diploma was revealed to be a crude forgery riddled with spelling and grammatical errors.At the time, Oxford University confirmed that the academics who ‘signed’ the diploma had all held Oxford posts, but never in the field of Law, and they would never have signed degree diplomas either.The vote to expel Kordan from parliament comes after 20 Iranian ministers called for his impeachment last month.last_img read more

Young Scholars 2016

Posted on by

first_imgMore than 60 Georgia teenagers spent the better part of their summer working in some of the most prestigious research laboratories at the University of Georgia.For more than two decades, the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences’ Young Scholars’ Program has paired researchers in CAES, the College of Pharmacy, the Warnell School of Forestry and the College of Veterinary Medicine with high school students to foster their love of science and introduce them to the breadth of science that is the foundation of agriculture — Georgia’s largest industry.“We have students representing high schools from all over the state, including 20 different counties and 34 high schools,” said Victoria David, director of the CAES Office of Diversity Relations. “These students really are the cream of the crop.”The students worked in some of the most advanced laboratories at UGA in Griffin, Tifton and Athens during the six-week program. They assisted with actual research projects led by UGA faculty, and at the end of the program they presented their findings in a research symposium. Some students may be listed as coauthors on these studies when they are published in academic journals, which is rare for students who have not completed high school.“The science that underlies everything that we do in the college requires that we have the best and brightest study in our area whether it’s animal and dairy science, agricultural and applied economics, food science, education and leadership — those are the areas that are going to impact our state, but also, quite frankly, our nation and our world,” CAES Dean Sam Pardue told this year’s Young Scholars at the 2016 closing ceremony on July 8.“Many of you in this room may have aspirations to be physicians or lawyers or engineers,” he said. “I hope you will take at least a few seconds to consider the great career you can have in the disciplines that are involved in food production and agriculture.”Of the 16 past or current Young Scholars who will come to UGA in the fall, seven will be joining CAES.A complete list of this year’s Young Scholars cohort is below. More photos from this year’s Young Scholars Program can be found at http://tinyurl.com/CAESYoungScholars2016.Promoting Science for 27 YearsThe Young Scholars Program began on the UGA Griffin Campus in 1989 and was originally intended to provide a collegiate experience to students who were not planning to attend college.Since then, the program has expanded to include scientists at the UGA Athens campus and the UGA Tifton campus. The program strives to select students that are truly ready to engage in real-world research and match them to projects of potential interest. Because of this experience, many Young Scholars continue their research careers when attending UGA as students through the college’s undergraduate research program.For more information about the Young Scholars Program, visit www.ysp.caes.uga.edu or email Victoria David, director of the CAES Office of Diversity and the Young Scholars Program at [email protected] application period for next year’s Young Scholars Program will run from October 2016 to January 2017.

Smith out for 23 as Khawaja, Harris, Marsh hit half-centuries

Posted on by

first_imgSTEVE Smith was out for 23 on day two of Australia’s tour match against Derbyshire, in his first innings since recovering from a concussion.He was caught on the cover boundary off the bowling of Matt Critchley after hitting two fours in his 38-ball innings.Smith was struck on the back of the neck by a Jofra Archer bouncer during the second Ashes Test against England at Lord’s on August 17.The 30-year-old then missed his side’s dramatic third Test loss at Headingley.Smith scored two centuries and 92 in the three innings he played in the Ashes series before his injury.Marnus Labuschagne is almost certain to retain his place after scoring at least 50 in each of his three innings after replacing Smith, meaning one of Australia’s top order is likely to have to make way for Smith’s probable return at Old Trafford.Usman Khawaja (72) and Marcus Harris (64) both made half-centuries at Derby as Australia declared on 338-5 just after tea, in reply to Derbyshire’s 172 all out, while Mitchell Marsh pressed his claims for a Test recall with 74.The hosts were 53-3 at stumps, still trailing by 113 runs, with Mitchell Starc (2-16) adding to his three first-innings wickets by dismissing Billy Godleman and Anuj Dal with the new ball.
