Things to Do Off Campus (Theatre, etc)

University campus is a great place, but as any student knows its not a palce to spend 100% of your time.  When the studies are done and the weekend or vacation comes around, getting off of campus and enjoying yourself is an important aspect of student life.  Having some relief from the stress of your studies will be key in getting through the year.

Why It’s Important to Get Off Campus Sometimes

Our students are some of the most dedicated and hard working in all of the world.  They also have some of the most challenging and heavy curriculum.  All this amounts to some of the most qualified graduates, but it can also be stressful, and it important to let up sometimes.  Students sometimes take out their stress with food, leading the often cited “freshman fifteen” (pounds).

Aside from comfort food, there are many different ways to relax and enjoy yourself away from your studies.  We’ve taken this article to talk a little bit about some of the ways that students can do this.  Here we go:

Movies and Theatre

The theatre is a great way to enjoy some time off of your studies.

One of the preferred ways to kick back for students is going to the cinema or the theatre.  There are lots of visiting shows that come around town throughout the year (so you don’t have to take a trip to Broadway just to see them).  Some recent shows that have paid visits to our area are Wicked, Book of Mormon, and soon the return of Cats.

As for movies, many students simply watch movies in their dormitory or at home, but we’d recommend going out and making a night of it at the cinema.  Getting “out on the town” can definitely make a difference.

Day Trips and Sight-seeing

Another thing we’d recommend is going out for short day trips for some sight-seeing.  There are many different buses that run out to the mountains and even down to the sea.  Make a day of it, take a few friends and see the sights.  Take pictures and try not to think about your studies for a little bit.

These little things can go a long way into making your studies much more enjoyable, and you will create some great memories with your friends in the process.

 

Tips for Students – Moving to On-Campus Housing

Generally, relocation is a lot of work. It is challenging at the same time exciting! Whether you’re moving offices or homes, it can bring a lot of stress; therefore, it’s great when you can work with someone who can efficiently lighten the load. Working with a relocation company is an important decision to any relocation project. Undeniably, you can carry out this activity on your own; you can simply hire a truck and facilitate the entire hauling process by yourself.

However, you can also successfully take some load off your back by hiring a professional moving company or inventory clearance (known as Inboedel ontruiming) to assist you with a move. Reputable companies can offer full relocation services, including hauling, packing/unpacking, storage, and transportation, among others. But how do you choose the best?

These five essential tips will assist you to make a wise choice when selecting a relocation service provider.

1. Check client feedback

If you’re hiring a moving company for the first time and you’ve no way of determining their performance. You can check some customer feedback posted online. These can be from blogs, forums or different social networking sites. Clients who’ve had good or bad experiences usually make time to share what they can, and therefore, you can use their feedback to make an informed decision when hiring a particular company.

2. Provides insurance

Insurance is vital when conducting a relocation to safeguard your valuable items. Always check if the company provides insurance so that you’ll receive sufficient compensation in case of any damage to your goods.Moreover, consider the degree of insurance cover offered and the steps required. You must ensure that you are sufficiently insured!

Ensure the moving company has three basic insurance policies which all movers should have – Public Liability, Work Cover, and Transit. The company should provide Certificates of Currency on request for these policies.

3. Get an estimate

Even though it may be impossible to provide an accurate costing until after the service, an experienced company should be able to provide you a rough estimate in terms of money and time.

If they underrated their business well, they can offer you a rundown of things and provide you a report.

More or less the ultimate cost will be approximately the same price, so it’ll assist you to set a budget for the relocation. This is essential if you’re canvassing prices from various companies. You can visit them, get a quote, and then make a wise decision after detailed comparison.

4. Find out about your payment choices 

After finding out how the costs of the service, you can also determine how you’ll be asked to pay. You can do this when requesting a quote (i.e. woningontruiming nu aanvragen) from the company.  Some firms will provide flexible payment choices: debit, credit card, cash or cheques. There might be some who’ll demand sizable cash payments or deposits, and you should be wary of such firms.

5. Provides top-quality service from beginning to the end

When relocating, you require the same high-quality service from start to finish. A company that provides a full relocation solution from start to end ensures that you get consistent service. An ideal choice is a mover which has a broad network of branches in various places following similar quality standards, at the point of departure and destination.

If not, the relocation service provider should work with an accredited, highly acclaimed and financially resourceful partners and agents in regions where it doesn’t have subsidiaries.

 

Management meets Forestry – Worlds Collide with Local Tree Services

At GAUGN we have an entire school devoted to management, and it’s applications across business.  Many of the problems faced by today’s companies are addressed through various methods of either management, logistics or marketing.  These high level studies of the dynamics of management are curious displays of intellectualism, but how do they fare when it comes to the real world applications?

These worlds collide in the case of local service providers, who strive to streamline an offering in a highly competitive marketplaces (often competing against hundreds of similar providers), giving the best service at competitive prices in order to attract and retain customers.  Given this environment it seems logical that some theoretical marketing and management aspects could assist in running a company like this, but is it really the case?  Let’s talk about it…

What Are Tree Services and Forestry Services Anyway?

Tree services are highly competitive, manual labor industries, making a unique study for management professionals.
Tree services are highly competitive, manual labor industries, making a unique study for management professionals.

Many people might be asking what does tree removal include?  Well, tree services (also sometimes called arborists) are experts at the growth, health, maintenance and eventual removal of trees from residential and commercial properties.  This can be a very lucrative business when done correctly, but it requires both an expertise in biology of plants, logging or “felling” of trees, and a blue collar work ethic since it is also a labor intensive business.

How does this apply to management?  A few ways:

  • Managing employees is largely similar across sectors and niches.
  • Labor intensive employees require special consideration compared with their white-collar, less labor intensive counterparts.
  • Good management means efficiency in felling trees, which converts to increased numbers of customers serviced.

Nothing radical here, but it’s important to consider the notion that in such a high competition environment, efficient management could be the difference maker between a profitable and an infeasible business model.  This has always been known in larger markets, but it is also the case in smaller markets.

Khavkin, editor of “Modern and Contemporary History.” The meeting was held in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere in which Boris L. described the passage of the full cycle of scientific texts reviewing procedures, illustrating its vivid examples from personal experience. Review any job, in his opinion, it has no right to be just an emotional cry editor souls must contain a balanced and professional analysis of the material, very concise and well-structured. Nor should we forget about such seemingly simple things as basic literacy, “Russian texts still must be written in Russian,” – said Boris Leonidovich. Boris L. noted with regret that the rise in prices for publication paper production in combination with the availability of similar materials on the Internet, not only reduces the interest of the general public to scientific journals, but also causes serious damage to the general level of scientific publications, particularly at a time when great importance is attached scientometrics. “Systematics, scientific apparatus and, of course, novelty – something that completely forgotten the young researchers in the pursuit of high levels of citation” – said the speaker.
