  4. North Allegheny alum Drago Marjanovic gave Gannon men’s water polo an added boost after being named varsity Division II All-America by the Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches. Marjanovic, 20, was one of eight players tabbed for the first team. “He is an international student and only a sophomore,” said Golden Knight coach Shane Unger. “Students who may be looking to come here from another country can look at what Drago has done and see that success is attainable by coming to a school like Gannon. “It is a great recruiting tool.” Marjanovic, who moved from Belgrade, Serbia, in August 2017 and starred for the North Allegheny boys that year, scored the winning goal in overtime in the Mid-Atlantic Water Polo Conference West Region championship game. He made first team all-tournament. He finished the season with a team-high 63 goals and 28 assists in 21 games, helping the Golden Knights to an 18-4 record. “We were preparing the whole season to qualify for (the) Mid-Atlantic conference championship and our goal was accomplished,” Marjanovic said. “I will be sad if this success turns out to be the (farthest) we get in my career.” Unger said it was no accident Marjanovic earned accolades. “Drago is at the pool before everyone else, stretching and mentally preparing for practice,” Unger said. “He is always the last one to leave. “He stays after and takes extra shooting practice once everyone has gotten out of the pool. He is a scholarship athlete (who) understands the value of the assistance he gets to come to this country and play a sport he loves while receiving a quality education.” Unger said Marjanovic, a business major, also is a high-level student. “To have a young man who understands the opportunity he has been given, (who) takes his natural ability and (combines) it with an extraordinary work ethic in the pool and the classroom, is rare,” Unger said. Marjanovic said North Allegheny coach Damir Matanovic and former coach Nikola Malezanov, a native of Serbia, helped him go to Gannon. “North Allegheny prepared me well for college,” Marjanovic said.

  5. KNOXVILLE – Tennessee’s basketball roster continues to grow and the latest addition is literally the biggest yet. Uros Plavsic, the 7-foot transfer center, has been ruled eligible to compete by the NCAA’s Committee for Legislative Relief, effective immediately. Plavsic came to UT from Arizona State. The native of Serbia began his U.S. basketball journey at Hamilton Heights Christian Academy in Chattanooga. Tennessee (10-5, 2-1 SEC) plays at Georgia (10-5, 0-2) at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Stegeman Coliseum in Athens, Ga. “We appreciate the committee’s work as this process ran its course,” Tennessee athletic director Phillip Fulmer said in a statement released by the university. “We’re thrilled that Uros will receive his opportunity to compete and that he no longer stands to lose a year of eligibility. Our compliance staff put a great deal of work and persistence into achieving this outcome. This is the right decision.” Before Plavsic, the Vols added freshman signee Santiago Vescovi for the start of conference play. He has started three games and is averaging a team-leading 14.3 points per game while shooting 55.6 percent on 3-pointers. Plavsic redshirted last season at Arizona State and will be redshirt freshman for the Vols for the season’s duration. He initially had committed to Cleveland State but followed assistant coach Drazen Zlovaric to Arizona State. Zlovaric, a former UT graduate assistant under Vols coach Rick Barnes, was let go by the Sun Devils in April. It was announced in early November that Plavsic had been ruled ineligible by the NCAA. The initial ruling also involved an appeal by the university. UT then filed a second appeal. Fulmer said he was “stunned” by the initial decision. Barnes said last Thursday that the Vols were hoping to hear something regarding Plavsic within the next 10 days. “If it gets beyond that,” Barnes said then, “it probably won’t be worth playing him in terms of him losing a year.” Plavsic and the Vols now have heard the news for which they were hoping. * * * Dan Fleser is a 1980 graduate of the University of Missouri who covered University of Tennessee athletics for the Knoxville News Sentinel from 1988-2019.

  10. The Center for Research in Mathematical Sciences Applied to Industry (CEPID-CeMEAI) at the University of Sao Paulo opens a post-doctoral research position in Image Processing. The selected candidate will work at the Institute of Mathematical and Computer Sciences of the University of Sao Paulo in Sao Carlos/SP, Brazil. Sao Paulo Research Foundation provides financial support with a monthly salary of R$R$ 7.373,10. Financial assistance can also be provided to cover transportation expenses as to the move to Sao Carlos - Brazil. An additional grant is also offered to include participation in highly relevant conferences and workshops, as well as research trips (limited to 15% of the annual amount). The position is for one year. Project: Image processing for flood detection and prediction Supervisor: Prof. Jo Ueyama Job Description: Flooding has been problematic in the state of Sao Paulo, especially in the rainy seasons. To mitigate the flood problem, we devised and deployed an Internet of Thing-based platform to detect and predict. Along with this platform, a camera that collects stream images periodically has been made available. The project aims to detect and predict flooding using images and thus automate the process of flood identification without human intervention. Such an approach only uses cameras without the need for the river height sensor that remains submerged in the urban streams. Such sensors are usually susceptible to failure as they are continually in contact with river water. The successful candidate will work to establish a collaboration between image processing and the Internet of Thing areas. Requirements: Applicants should have a PhD in Computer Science or related fields such as Computer Engineering. Candidates must have got their PhD in the last 5 years. Application: Please send your application before January 31st 2020 to: joueyama@icmc.usp.br and isabela@icmc.usp.br. Please indicate "post-doctoral application - Image Processing" in the subject line. Applications should include curriculum vitae, statement of research interests and two contact information for recommendation letters (only PDF files). Contract Condition: Grant from FAPESP under the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDC- CeMEAI) (http://www.fapesp.br/en/17 , http://www.cemeai.icmc.usp.br/ ).
  11. Dimensions of Europeanization, Junior and Senior Fellows, University of Graz The Field of Excellence “Dimensions of Europeanization” at the University of Graz is looking for junior and senior visiting fellows for the academic year 2020-21 focusing on Making Borders/Crossing Borders The recently established Field of Excellence at the University of Graz deals with processes of "Europeanization" in past and present. It focuses on the analysis of changing discourses of Europe, especially in regard to the transfer of concepts, values and ideas. It is based on the goal of redefining the concept of Europeanization, in particular in Southeastern Europe, and of identifying the historically grounded cultural, economic and social processes that are circumscribed by it. The Field of Excellence explores the field of Europeanization through interdisciplinary approaches, incorporating sociology, history, geography, cultural studies, law, political science, economics, theology, as well as digital methods. It includes more than 20 faculty members from five different faculties at the University. The Field of Excellence includes doctoral training, research projects and a fellowship program. The fellowship program of the field of excellence “Dimensions of Europeanization” will focus on the theme Making Borders/Crossing Borders during the academic year 2020-1. Over the year, it will support four junior fellows (post-doc and early career) and two senior fellows (tenured professors and equivalent) to spend one semester in Graz to conduct and present research and collaborate with other researchers. The theme focuses on historical and contemporary processes of border making, in particular in the context of defining Europe in changing historical contexts. Projects can cover all historical periods from antiquity, such as the role of the limes of the Roman Empire, to the present, such as the external borders of the EU and FRONTEX. Crossing borders includes different acts of people to cross, negotiate and challenge these boundaries. Projects that reflect on the interplay between border creation and its crossing are particularly welcome. The field of excellence is particularly interested in projects that engage with the theme using an interdisciplinary approach and are open to a diachronic engagement. In particular, a focus on Southeastern Europe is welcome, but not required. Innovative, unconventional project ideas are especially welcome. The research conducted can be part of a larger project, but applicants should be able to demonstrate a clearly defined research project for the stay in Graz. Junior Visiting Fellows will receive a monthly stipend of 1250 Euros for the duration of 4 months (October 2020-January 2021 or March 2021-June 2021) and travel costs to Graz. The application should include a CV, including referees, and a one-page research plan that clearly highlights how the research links to “Dimensions of Europeanization” and the topic. Junior Visiting Fellows need to have completed their PhD by the time they begin their fellowship. Applications should indicate the preferred semester for the fellowship. Deadline is 15 March 2020. Senior Visiting Fellows will receive an apartment for the duration of 4 months of their stay (October 2020-January 2021 or March 2021-June 2021) and a return flight ticket (economy class) from their ordinary place of residence to Graz. The Senior Visiting Fellowship Program is open to researchers with an established international reputation. The application should include a CV and a one-page research plan that clearly highlights how the research of the fellow links to “Dimensions of Europeanization”. Applications should indicate the preferred semester for the fellowship. Deadline is 15 March 2020. The University of Graz Field of Excellence “Dimensions of Europeanization” will host 2 senior and 4 junior fellows during the academic year 2020-21. Fellows will receive workspace, library access and will be involved in the activities of Dimensions of Europeanization and participating institutes, as well as the Centre for Southeast European Studies. All fellows are expected to present their research during their stay, attend other presentations and contribute to the academic environment of the university. Fellows are expected to work on a specific publication during their stay. The university will cover accident insurance, while health insurance needs to be covered by fellows. For further questions, please contact europeanization@uni-graz.at. For more information on the Field of Excellence “Dimensions of Europeanization” see https://europaeisierung.uni-graz.at/

  17. Iva, Other types of financial aid will depend on your academic profile. You can send us your SAT and TOEFL scores, Serbian GPA in current school, and anything else that may be of interest, and is related to your education. Have you communicated with coaches from NCAA schools, or you did some other kind of search for institutions? If it's easier for you, we can communicate via Slack, software we use to easily talk to more prospective students at the same time, and keep them in one place. If that sounds good to you, send us your e-mail address to office@iacbg.org so we can invite you to our advising channels. IAC Team
  18. Hi, my name is Iva and I am a senior in Gymnasium High School. I am currently looking for soccer coaches that will provide scholarship for me, if that's possible. There is a chance that i won't get full scholarship, and because of the low budget me and my parents provide, I am a bit concerned about whole money thing. So, I was wondering If you are familiar with option of getting some financial aid and maybe some other types of scholarships (beside sport scholarship). Thanks in advance, Iva

  26. Priprema za SAT, ispit potreban za upis koledža i univerziteta u Americi i na drugim lokacijama u svetu, počinje u utorak, 3. decembra 2019. godine i traje osam nedelja. Ovaj termin priprema prilagođen je polaganju testa u martu 2020. godine, jer se završava 8. februara. Tokom svake sedmice predavanja se održavaju utorkom i četvrtkom po dva sata, a u kalendar će zbog obima rada biti dodato i nekoliko termina drugim danima. Predavanja se radnim danima održavaju pre podne od 10:00 i popodne od 16:00 sati. Predavanja su potpuno ista i sami kandidati odlučuju na koji termin časova mogu da dođu. Raspored će neznatno biti promenjen tokom novogodišnjih i božićnih praznika, o čemu će kandidati za pripreme biti na vreme obavešteni. Tokom priprema organizuju se simulacije testa koje će naši predavači oceniti i objasniti kandidatima koje se greške moraju ispraviti kako bi se poboljšao rezultat. Kada se pripreme završe, kandidati i dalje mogu da vežbaju kod nas bez ikakvog plaćanja i da se konsultuju sa predavačima oko delova testa koji im mogu biti problematični.
