Od kandidata za vizu se očekuje da unese korisničko ime ili drugi identifikacioni podatak na mrežama koje je koristio tokom poslednjih pet godina. Između ostalih, u meniju se nalaze mreže Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Reddit, Twitter, YouTube.

  6. Naknade za međunarodne studente i studente na razmeni u Sjedinjenim Američkim Državama biće povećane od 24. juna 2019. godine, saopštila je američka Agencija za imigraciju i carinu (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement). Glavna promena je veća cena za formular SEVIS koji svaki strani student u Americi mora da plati pre izdavanja vize. Naknada za I-901 SEVIS za F i M studentske vize će umesto 200 dolara od juna koštati 350 dolara. Cena za I-901 SEVIS za J studente u programima "au pair", za savetnike u kampovima i letnje "work&travel" programe ostaće ista, 35 američkih dolara. Svi ostali korisnici J viza plaćaće 220 dolara umesto dosadašnjih 180 dolara. SEVIS naknada plaća se u okviru programa SEVP (Student and Exchange Visitor Program) koji služi za nadzor stranih studenata u Americi i sertifikaciju institucija koje ih primaju na dalje obrazovanje. Zvanična informacija dostupna je na https://www.ice.gov/news/releases/new-increased-fees-international-students-exchange-visitors-sevp-certified-schools?fbclid=IwAR1lkAweUC8mZa9-Lq8VMoS2QYjcwM1Atx0zco8YIO9HM7vzkKuwOJTRr3A .
  7. TOEFL - test kojim se proverava znanje engleskog jezika pred upis univerziteta i koledža u Americi i na drugim lokacijama u svetu od 1. avgusta će promeniti izgled. Kako je najavio ETS, američka kompanija koja organizuje test, TOEFL iBT će biti kraći u pojedinim delovima i ukupno bi trebalo da traje 3 sata. Najavljene izmene: ČITANJE: Umesto 12, 13 ili 14 pitanja koja su se do sada pojavljivala na svakoj sekciji, sada će ih biti samo 10. SLUŠANJE: Trenutno na ovoj sekciji kandidate čeka između 4 i 6 lekcija i po šest pitanja na svakoj od njih. Izmenama će biti dostupne samo 3 ili 4 lekcije. Broj konverzacija koje se slušaju ostaje isti - 2 ili 3 i broj pitanja ostaje isti - 5 po svakoj konverzaciji. GOVOR: Trenutna verzija ima šest zadataka, od kojih su dva nezavisna, a četiri integrisana, sa čitanjem i slušanjem. U novoj verziji testa kandidate čekaju četiri zadatka - jedan nezavisni i tri integrisana. PISANJE: Bez promena. Druga velika promena koju je najavio ETS je mogućnost kombinovanja najboljih rezultata sa više polaganih testova - MyBest Scores. Zvanične informacije o promenama dostupne su vam na stranici https://www.ets.org/toefl/better_test_experience .

  10. Anyone working to become a CPA has to be able to see whether things add up. For Milica Maras, Governors State University provided the ideal equation—a place where she could play volleyball and earn her Bachelor of Science in Accounting degree. The combination proved such a good fit that Maras not only became GSU’s first international athlete, she won awards as she earned a perfect GPA. Raised in Serbia, Maras attended a specialized high school in Belgrade that focused on business and law where she was introduced to accounting. An avid athlete, she also wanted to continue playing volleyball when she headed to college, but that was an opportunity only available in the U.S., she said. Maras came to the U.S. to study at a small college in Texas, which offered her a full scholarship. Soon after arriving, she longed for a larger university and discovered GSU through a Google search for schools with both an accounting program and a NCAA or NAIA volleyball team. The search netted great results, and the transition from a small college in the South to a regional institution was as smooth as her serve. “I didn’t find it hard to blend in at GSU,” Maras said. “Everyone was interested in where I came from, and people would ask me to teach them a few Serbian words.” Maras lived at Prairie Place, sharing the kitchen with students from India and cooking food that intrigued the American students who stopped by to heat up a quick dinner. “They would pop something in the microwave and say, ‘What are you making? That smells good,’” she laughed. In exploring accounting classes, Maras encountered university Lecturer Michael Trendell, whose combination of textbook lessons with real-life examples in his auditing course helped Maras refine her professional goals. “He got me interested in auditing because he had many examples from his work life, and that really made sense to me,” she said. “He also made it very clear what was important, which is really helpful when you’re an international student.” Maras also found a home on the women’s volleyball team, sporting number seven on her Jaguar jersey. Her prowess on the court, where she set records, was matched by her success in the classroom, where she earned a 4.0 GPA, leading to an NAIA-Daktronics Scholar-Athlete Award from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, one of 14 selected out of approximately 2,300 NAIA women’s volleyball players. Maras also was named to the Google Cloud Academic All-American NAIA Volleyball second team, drawing attention from the local news media. While some students struggle to keep all the balls in the air, Maras readily shares her secret. “It’s all about organization,” she said. “If you’re organized, you can do anything you want.” Maras seems to manage a full schedule of classes and practice and still found time to serve as president of the International Culture Organization, which promotes diversity on campus. “As an international student, it gives you a chance to be yourself and also an opportunity to learn about others,” she said. During the club’s annual fashion show one year, she said, “I was wearing traditional Serbian dress with another Serbian girl, walking down the red carpet to traditional music. We started dancing to it, and pretty soon everyone was dancing, including President (Elaine) Maimon,” she said. After graduation, Maras plans to work for a year, then head to graduate school before becoming a CPA, and heading back to Serbia. “I want to work as a graduate assistant, hopefully at GSU,” she said. “I always tell people that this is a university that’s big enough to matter, but small enough to care about you,” she said. Seems like a great balance for this future CPA.

  16. The European Research Council funded research project „Non-Territorial Autonomy as Minority Protection in Europe: An Intellectual and Political History of a Travelling Idea, 1850–2000“ (NTAutonomy) invites prospective candidates to join a team of five researchers. The Project in its Entirety NTAutonomy explores the history of non-territorial autonomy, which was a means of granting cultural rights to a national group as a corporate body within a state. Without any normative intention, our project investigates this form of national self-rule as both an intellectual concept and an applied policy across Europe. We will examine the origins of this idea in both parts of the Habsburg Empire and conduct research on how this concept travelled to the interwar period. Starting from the assumption that non-territorial autonomy was not specific to a particular political current, we will analyse how this concept translated into the early Soviet Union, the socialist Ukrainian People’s Republic, the liberal democracies in the Baltic States, and the far- right Sudeten German Party in Czechoslovakia. Finally, we want to trace non-territorial autonomy elements in the policies of European minority protection institutions until the end of the twentieth century. For more information, please refer to our project website: https://ntautonomy.oeaw.ac.at/en/ Job Description You will be in charge of the project’s work package that analyses continuities and breaks in the ways non-territorial autonomy has been considered in international minority protection throughout the twentieth century. Ideally, you cover the period of the interwar period and the period after WWII. Yet, applications with a focus on either period are also possible. You should collect and analyse material on transnational minority networks, like the Congress of European Nationalities or the Federal Union of European Nationalities, pertaining to the topic of non-territorial autonomy. Furthermore, you should collect and analyse material of international organisations’ position towards non-territorial arrangements, including e.g. the League of Nations, the United Nations, the OSCE and/or the Council of Europe. You are expected to participate in the bi-monthly meetings of the project team, discuss your findings, make them accessible in our EndNote database, help to organise a conference, participate in editing the conference proceedings, and assist in the maintenance of our website. If you apply as a doctorate student, you should complete a PhD thesis on a topic in the wider field of your work package and publish preliminary results. If you apply as a post-doctoral researcher, you are expected to publish your findings in leading peer-reviewed journals and produce a draft of a book / habilitation on a topic in the wider field of your work package. Starting date is autumn 2019. You are expected to take your permanent residence in Vienna. We Offer We offer a 12 months contract, renewable for 30 months (PhD students) or 24 months (post docs) after an interim evaluation. PhD students will receive a gross salary of approx. 30,000 € per year, corresponding to 75% (30 h) of a full position. Post-doctoral researchers will receive a gross salary of approx. 42,000 € per year, corresponding to 80% (32 hours) of a full position. The total duration of employment and the extent of part-time employment is negotiable. You will have a fully equipped workspace at the Institute in Vienna. Funding for research missions and participation to international conferences will also be provided. You will be part of a research team of six scholars in an intellectually ambitious and challenging project funded by the European Union in one of Europe’s most pleasant cities. The Austrian Academy of Sciences is an equal opportunity employer. Your Qualifications You must hold at least an MA degree (or equivalent), ideally with a scholarly background in modern, contemporary and/or legal history or in nationalism studies. You should demonstrate a strong interest in minority issues as well as in historical and comparative research questions.

  26. As the Kansas Jayhawks prepare for their opening-round NCAA Tournament game against Northeastern on Thursday at Salt Lake City, they are realizing there is no simple way to neutralize Huskies point guard Vasa Pusica. Put a bigger man on the 6-foot-5-inch Pusica, and he’ll attack the mismatch for a drive to the basket (as he did to clinch Northeastern’s semifinal win against the College of Charleston last week in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament). Press him full-court and double-team him when he dribbles, and he’ll respond by feeding the open man (as he did for seven assists against Charleston). Give him space, and he’ll drill one demoralizing 3-pointer after another (as he did a career-best seven times in the CAA final against Hofstra University, with some of them coming several steps behind the arc). Pusica’s ability to recognize and attack the full spectrum of defensive strategies isn’t nearly as easy as he makes it look. His efficient leadership has been hard earned. At 18, having run out of options to further his basketball career in his native Serbia, he was forced to move overseas and spend his final year of high school in Wichita, Kansas, a little more than two hours from the campus of his upcoming NCAA opponent. Three years ago, when Pusica was seeking another new home after his coach at the University of San Diego had been fired, only one school—Northeastern—was serious about recruiting him. He committed to the Huskies on faith, before he could visit their Boston campus. Now, at the end of a scholastic career that he never could have imagined as a teen in Belgrade, Pusica faces the odd predicament of being expected to produce an upset. His 13th-seeded Huskies are eight-point underdogs against Kansas, a defending NCAA Tournament finalist and one of the most storied men’s basketball programs in the country—and still, despite the Jayhawks’ superior pedigree, many experts are giving the Huskies a chance because of Pusica’s audacious confidence. What they don’t realize is that his on-court arrogance was born from humility. Pusica knows better than anyone that he wasn’t expected to be here. “I learned how to work hard” Pusica grew up playing in Belgrade, Serbia, an overachieving nation of the American game with a history of producing coaches and players who are legends in Europe. His love for basketball was furthered by watching underdog Yugoslavia (the federation in which Serbia was a member at that time) win the 2002 World Championship in Indianapolis, in a field dominated by NBA stars. Pusica changed positions from shooting guard to point guard when a new coach in Belgrade recognized his leadership potential at age 16. The move opened doors for him. He was selected to play for the Serbian under-16 and under-18 national teams. But he has never been athletically explosive, and he wasn’t yet the reliable deep shooter that he is today. And so, at 18, he reached a crossroads, as the top professional teams in Serbia weren’t offering him a contract. “I could have probably signed for a mediocre team to start my professional career, but I didn’t see me getting better and improving a lot that way,” he says. “But if I went over to the States, I was 100 percent sure that I can get a Division One scholarship.” He moved to Sunrise Christian Academy, one of the top high school programs in the United States, where his teammates included four fellow Serbs who helped him adapt culturally and linguistically. The team was ranked No. 14 among high schools nationally, and Pusica earned a scholarship to San Diego. “It was school, basketball, and sleep, because they were used to working a lot there,” Pusica says of his year abroad in Kansas. “People back home would say they can’t believe how much progress I made in my game. “I learned how to work hard. I just saw kids coming and shooting in the gym at 5 a.m. or 6 a.m., and that was something I never done before. I thought I was a hard worker. But when I came over to the States, I saw how much more work you’ve got to put in and how much more you can develop.” When Pusica was seeking to transfer after averaging 8.3 points and 2.5 assists as a sophomore at San Diego, Northeastern’s coaching staff studied him on video and quickly offered him a scholarship. But the Huskies were also recruiting high school players at that time; they would need an answer fast. “I didn’t know anything about Northeastern,” Pusica says. But he could see from game videos that everything the coaches were telling him was true: They ran a sophisticated offense that could help him realize his goal of playing professionally in Europe someday. Learning the hard way NCAA transfer rules prevented Pusica from playing during the 2016-17 year for Northeastern. He spent the school year acclimating to the Boston campus and performing well in practice as the Huskies went 15-16. His ascension to the starting lineup last season was a revelation. With Pusica running the Huskies, they exceeded forecasts of a sixth-place finish to earn a No. 2 seed in the CAA tournament, where they led Charleston, the de facto host team, by 17 points early in the second half. That’s when 8,000 local fans joined with actor Bill Murray, a part-time resident of Charleston, to cheer their Cougars to a frantic comeback. Pusica hit shot after shot to stave them off and finished with 30 points. But he was whistled for traveling in the final minute of regulation after picking up his dribble, which invited a double-team; then, at the end of overtime, he lost a drive off his leg out of bounds. Pusica was devastated by his team’s failure to reach the NCAA Tournament. Those memories defined his approach to the CAA tournament last week, where the Huskies were once more matched against the Cougars in the semifinal at Charleston. “When they were coming back last year, so many times I just kind of gave up on trying to get open—allowing people almost to deny me,” Pusica says. “So I just told myself, I’m not going to get denied this time. Nothing’s going to stop me.” A debt repaid The matchup with Kansas gives Northeastern a chance, slim though it is. The fourth-seeded Jayhawks (25-9) are young and inexperienced, they shoot poorly, and they are flimsy defensively on the perimeter, which is to say that their weaknesses play to the strengths of the 13th-seeded Huskies (23-10). Kansas has the pedigree that Northeastern lacks. The Jayhawks were picked No. 1 in the NCAA in preseason, and they retained that ranking after a 9-0 start. The subsequent loss of two of their best players resulted in their program’s worst season in 15 years. And after all of that, they are still expected to beat Northeastern. Those expectations mean little to Pusica. Like so many of his underrated teammates, he has devoted his entire basketball life to this matchup with a major opponent on college basketball’s greatest stage. All he and the Huskies have ever wanted was the opportunity. “I felt like I owed it to the coaching staff and to these guys,” Pusica says of their breakthrough in the conference tournament last week. “With how much freedom they gave me when I transferred here, I owed it to them to make it here. “I’m still trying to figure out what’s going on and how big this is. But I just kind of feel like I did my job. I did what I was supposed to do.” For media inquiries, please contact media@northeastern.edu. https://news.northeastern.edu/2019/03/18/from-serbia-to-march-madness-the-remarkable-journey-of-northeastern-guard-vasa-pusica/
