SNHU Awards Global M.B.A. Scholarship

03.11.2008
Southern New Hampshire University Names Jennifer Allen, of Mexico City, Winner of its Go-Getters Challenge

Southern New Hampshire University’s Go-Getters Challenge, a two-month campaign to award one contestant a free Global M.B.A., named Jennifer Allen, of Mexico City, Mexico, its winner.

Allen was selected among three finalists, who appeared live on “FOX25 Morning News” Oct. 27. Each contestant had one minute to explain how an SNHU Global M.B.A. would impact their life. Viewers then voted online and a panel of SNHU judges determined the final winner.

“I am absolutely thrilled that I have been chosen as the winner of the Go-Getter Challenge. This has been a truly incredible experience. I am so thankful for this opportunity to finally be able to further my education through the Global M.B.A. from SNHU,” said Allen. “I am confident that the tools and skills that I will learn will be directly applied to my work as a manager in a nonprofit organization in Mexico City, Mexico.
I plan on then sharing successful strategies for economic sustainability worldwide through consulting. Most of all, I know that this scholarship will enable me to empower others. I will be transformed through this experience and know many others will be also.”

The campaign was unveiled on the “FOX25 Morning News’” Sept. 16 broadcast. Contestants were required to write a 500-word essay explaining how a Global M.B.A. would impact their lives. SNHU staff and faculty members served as judges and selected six semi-finalists. On-campus interviews followed and the field was then narrowed to three. The campaign generated over 1 million online impressions and candidates from seven states and Mexico took part in the Challenge.

“The ideal go-getter for us is someone who is goal-driven and willing to put in the time and effort to improve his or her life and the lives of those around them, but perhaps hasn’t had the opportunity or resources to get to that next level in their education,” says SNHU President Paul LeBlanc. “Education has been the fuel of the American Dream and this is our way to help someone realize the transformation that is possible.”

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
