The seminal work of Coombs et al. (1973) established a typology of educational programmes: (1) formal education programmes, structured and chronologically graded activities that go from primary school to universities and professional training; (2) non-formal education programmes, organised activities outside the curriculum; and (3) informal education programmes, lifelong educational processes developed through daily life experiences of the individual (Knapper and Cropley, 2000; Ngaka et al., 2012; Sharma and Choudhary, 2015). This 'educational triad' is theoretically clear, which has helped teachers and educators to design modules with specific educational objectives. Nonetheless, in the context of entrepreneurial learning, it results in confusion so a well-planned 'educational triad' becomes a 'BermudaTriangle' where planned formal and non-formal educational objectives mysteriously disappear and unplanned informal educational outcomes seem to spontaneously appear.
A "BermudaTriangle" of insults leads to neurondeath in PD. Known risk factors for the onset of Parkinson's disease (PD) include environmental (green), genetic (purple), and endogenous (blue) influences. Contributions from these risk factors trigger oxidative modifications, mitochondrial dysfunction, and impaired protein degradation that together form a "Bermudatriangle" of interrelated molecular events that underlie neurodegeneration. The interactions between these pathways are sup- ported by the following (for details and citations, please refer to text): (1) Disturbances in mitochondrial respiration generate reactive oxygen species. (2) Overexpression of SOD is protective against mitochondrial toxins. (3) NOS deficiency or inhibi- tion attenuates MPTP, paraquat, and rotenone toxicity. (4) Inhibition of degradation systems leads to increased sensitivity to oxidative stressors. (5) Impaired degradation leads to an accumulation of substrates, increasing the probability for oxidative modifications. (6) Excessive production of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species modifies proteins, leading to inactivation, crosslinking, and aggregation. (7) α-Synuclein modified by oxidized dopamine impedes CMA. (8) Oxidative modifications mod- ify the lysosomal membrane and crosslink membrane proteins. (9) UPS and CMA are not able to unfold and remove oxidatively proteins. (10) Oxidative modification of proteasome subunits inhibits UPS function. (11) Macroautophagy is the principle mech- anism for the degradation of damaged mitochondria. (12) Proteasome inhibition increases mitochondrial reactive species gen- eration and decreases complex I and II activity.
T HE TERM “Bermudatriangle” has entered our lexicon as an eponymous synonym for mystery or confusion. Nominally denoting a largely open stretch of the Atlantic Ocean with its apices on Florida, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico, its lore is a seemingly disproportionate share of un- explained disappearances of ships and airplanes. Careful scrutiny of the actual record has revealed that the triangle is no more dangerous than any other equivalent stretch of open ocean and that a rational explanation (most commonly weather or human error) can explain the misfortunes that have occurred there. 1
Swail, Redd, and Perna (2003) explored the concept of force-field analysis, based on a psychological environment that can be described mathematically and includes an organized set of constructs that change over time in response to external stimuli (Swail, Redd, & Perna, 2003). “Instead of a linear input-process-outcomes framework, the force-field approach represents the interplay of forces having positive and negative effects on student outcomes” (Hirschy, Bremer, & Castellano, 2011, p. 305). The geometric model developed by Swail et al. (2003) consists of a triangle representing the interactions of cognitive, social, and institutional factors. The triangle symbolizes the overall student experience. One side of the triangle is the cognitive factors, including academic rigor, aptitude, study skills, and time management (Swail, et al., 2003). Although these factors play an important part in student success, this project will not directly address them. As a proxy for academic rigor (readiness), this study will utilize the student’s ACT or COMPASS score, which is used to determine course placement. The second side of the
If you are currently an active in Triangle Fraternity, what will you expect as an alumnus of your chapter? That’s probably the best place to start talking about alumni relations. You are likely to want and to expect some of the same things that current alumni expect. How often will you expect to receive communication from the chapter? How frequently will you expect to be invited back to chapter activities? What activities should be planned for alumni? What type of news will you be most interested in reading about in your chapter newsletter? How far in advance will you want to know about important dates like Homecoming, Founders’ Day, Ritual and initiation, rush or recruitment events, etc.? How much financial support will you be willing to give?
You will find that this new program is based on the Triangle Fraternity Code of Ethics. This long-standing part of Triangle Fraternity’s history was chosen as the foundation for this program due to its significance to our organization and because it is a public document describing the values and principles of Triangle. Hopefully, this program will instill the Code of Ethics within each Triangle member, and make it a part of their everyday lives. Incorporating the Code of Ethics into one’s life will greatly enhance the college and fraternity experience of each Triangle member. Further, this will provide for better training and education for the future of all Triangle chapters.
◆ Increase your empathy for others. When you think about it, college students are a pretty privileged group. You have enough ability to attend school beyond high school. You have clothes to keep you warm. You have nutritious food to keep your body strong. You have a roof over your head. Sharing your support with others who are less fortunate than you increases your feelings of empathy for others. Empathy is the sense of other’s feelings without people telling us in words. It’s having a clear channel in reading other’s emotions. Empathy keeps society from becoming cold and cruel.
“Today is a very exciting day for Triangle Fraternity, each of you, our Triangle alumni, and the institution. We are officially beginning the process to welcome our newest members to the [insert name] chapter of Triangle. On behalf of the Active Chapter/Colony I welcome you to the Triangle Fraternity family; I know that many more will follow in your footsteps.”
This guide is designed to help all Triangle chapters establish positive media relations and effectively work with the media in their own community and the communities of their members. Building media relations takes time and follow through. Having a positive relationship with various media works in the chapter’s favor. If the media knows who you are and what positive things you are doing, they are more likely to help promote your accomplishments and events.
Whether or not the Donor has granted a Power on behalf of the Donee, any subsequent application to the Supreme Court of Bermuda under the Mental Health Act for a Receivership Order will terminate the Power immediately when the Supreme Court grants the Order appointing a Receiver. This is a very unusual occurrence, however, it is possible that a member of the family may apply to the Supreme Court for a Receivership Order because the appointed Donee is abroad, unwilling or unable to act or is untrustworthy. A Donor may terminate a Power at any time by way of a Deed of Revocation as long as he or she has sufficient legal capacity at the time to do so.
One cannot just sit back and wait for problems to solve themselves. Further, problems cannot be wished away. Typically, all waiting does is make the situation worse—frustrations grow, inappropriate behaviors left unchecked suddenly become acceptable, and eventually something will happen that brings the issue to a head and rather than being able to deal with it positively and effectively, the individuals involved are only able to resolve the issue through anger and possible violence. A better approach is to use personal confrontation techniques in the beginning and try to resolve the issue in a manner acceptable to both parties. To do this, whoever is concerned about the situation needs to talk with the individual(s) that they believe to be the cause of the issue. They need to take them aside and talk with them one on one. They need to explain why the behavior is inappropriate (i.e. the behavior is against the law, if you are caught the whole chapter and national organiza- tion are endangered. You would not want us to lose our chapter or be shut down or to have the other members lose their home would you? That is precisely what will happen if you continue to do what you’re doing. Or, in our ritual it says if we are having a problem with a member, you need to talk with him one on one. I am talking with you now because I have a problem with some of the things you are doing. Triangle was founded on certain principles and values. These values include…The actions you are taking do not conform to our values and code of ethics. What you are doing is behavior unacceptable to Triangle. I need you to change that behavior, or you will have to be ask to leave.)
Direction: Bring in a professional from student involvement, habitat for humanity and IFC/NPC to talk to the students about opportunities on campus in these three areas. After they leave, facilitate a discussion about what it means to be a balanced leader. Why is involvement outside of Triangle important? Through are other interests, how are we all connected? Follow up this activity with Crossing the Line.
If an active member no longer desires to be a member of Triangle, he may voluntarily terminate his membership. Before this action is taken, chapter officers should try to discover the real reasons for his desire to break affiliation by calmly discussing the situation with him. A misunderstanding may be cleared up that will keep the man in the organization. If he has a legitimate complaint, it may shed light on ways to improve the organization to the advantage of all.
suggestions will most assuredly help your chapter in becoming a classy organization. CLEAN CHAPTER HOUSE: A clean chapter house, both inside and out, represents many things to guests and in particular, potential new members. First, it shows that you care a great deal for Triangle and take pride in the chapter facilities. Second, it shows that the members of your chapter are responsible and capable of living on their own. A clean house also provides a comfortable setting for your guests which in turn, will help them open up in conversation, the core of rush. Every member of the chapter should take part each week to maintain a pleasant chapter house. Remember the code of ethics as it applies to house upkeep.
This is a compiled list of the names and contact information of men who are eligible to join Triangle. Every member of the organization should receive constant updates as the names list grows so that he can contact potential new members and be informed as to who is being recruited. It is important to note that when building a names list, you should not judge the men before you get to know them. Leave no one off of it, including those men who tell you they are not interested. Many Triangle men never anticipated they would eventually join the Greek system.
Any information you can provide to parents to let them know you and Triangle Fraternity care about their son’s academic development is good. Let them know about the in-chapter tutoring program, quiet hours in the house, reward and recognition programs for the highest or most improved grades, or workshops the chapter provides in the areas of scholarship and career development. They want to make sure their son choose a worthy organization that prides itself on academic integrity and success.
