  7. Nova priprema za SAT, ispit potreban za upis koledža i univerziteta u Americi i na drugim lokacijama u svetu, počinje u utorak, 20. februara 2018. godine i traje osam nedelja, do 21. aprila 2018. Priprema je prilagođena majskom polaganju testa. Tokom svake sedmice predavanja se održavaju utorkom i četvrtkom po dva sata, a u kalendar će zbog obima rada biti dodato i nekoliko subotnjih termina. S obzirom na to da je većina polaznika priprema tokom radne sedmice u školi, predavanja se 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. Nakon uplate prve rate dobija se jedna od dostupnih knjiga za pripremu koja služi kao referentno sredstvo i udžbenik za deo vežbanja. Kandidati će tako dobiti izdanje Princeton Review "Cracking the SAT", a tokom priprema će dobijati i materijal koji je sastavljen od originalnog sadržaja sastavljenog u Centru i od najboljih delova dostupne literature za pripremu testa. Ukoliko se ukaže potreba da se dodatno vežba, Centar može da obezbedi dodatne praktične zadatke i instrukcije bez dodatne naplate. Na kraju priprema dostupan je besplatni kompletni probni test SAT koji 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. Priprema košta 48,000 dinara i plaća se u dve rate. Prvi deo u iznosu od 30,000 dinara se plaća na početku, a drugi deo kada istekne prvi mesec priprema. Sam test ne ulazi u cenu priprema i mora se samostalno prijaviti na sajtu www.collegeboard.org i platiti kreditnom ili debitnom karticom kojom se može plaćati na Internetu. Broj mesta za testove je ograničen i savetujemo svim kandidatima da se za test prijave što je pre moguće. Na časovima se obrađuju sve sekcije ispita - jezički i matematički deo i pisanje eseja. Osim rada na samim časovima, dostupna vam je biblioteka resursa Centra u kojoj možete dodatno da vežbate bez dodatne nadoknade, a predavači uvek ostavljaju dosta vežbanja koja se mogu poneti i uraditi kod kuće. Pre početka priprema potrebno je uraditi besplatni probni test znanja engleskog jezika. Zakazivanje termina probnog testa može se obaviti pozivom brojeva telefona kancelarije - 011/334 9639 i 011/334 9638. Prijava za pripremu obavlja se na našem sajtu popunjavanjem odgovarajućeg formulara na stranici https://goo.gl/forms/8ndGsYSh84EIGKcu1 .

  12. When you visit the seaside do you find yourself thinking more about the watery depths than your tan line? Do you often day dream about getting a job on an ocean liner so you can sail the Seven Seas? Did you just answer yes to both of these questions but you're still concerned about your education? Have you ever thought of oceanography? Just like biology is the study of the bio and geography is the study of the geo, oceanography is the study of the ocean-o. Ocean scientists do their research where the air smells of salt and rotting fish and when dry docked they tend to gather in poorly lit seaside taverns and wax poetically about their voyages over a couple of adult beverages. Is this getting too romantic? Let's bring it back to reality. This year's Tyler Prize, thought of as the Nobel Prize for the environmental sciences, was awarded to two esteemed scientists, Paul Falkowski and James J. McCarthy, from Rutgers University and Harvard College respectively. Falkowski's research looked to the microscopic creatures living in the ocean and the impact they had on the evolution of Earth's overall climate. McCarthy looked at marine nutrient cycles and put together a big part of the puzzle about how human activity affects Earth's climate. He also worked with many top scientists to help inform policy and determine the global impacts of climate change. Attending either of these schools is by itself a high achievement, but if you are interested in environmental science and doing research, you can do a lot worse than be influenced by one of these two scientists and those that work with them.
  13. Nova grupna priprema za GRE, ispit potreban za upis master i doktorskih studija u Americi i na drugim lokacijama u svetu, počinje u ponedeljak, 19. februara 2018. godine i traje osam nedelja, do 9. aprila.

  18. If you had a loved one that needed medical assistance, who would you send them to? Best Doctors, Inc. asked this same question and polled doctors all around the United States. An overwhelming number of responses came back in support of doctors in the University of Virginia Health System. You can read the full article here to see why, if you're considering a medicine education in the United States, you may want to consider applying to the University of Virginia.

  19. Early game in GMAT Verbal and Quant.

    If you're considering taking the GMAT and have taken the time to look at strategy for the test, you've almost certainly heard this little nugget before: "The questions toward the beginning of a section are worth more points!" So, is it really true? Sort of. Actually, you have to dispense with the idea of questions being “worth points” at all to make sense of how this works. What’s happening as you answer questions is that the GMAT is honing in on the difficulty level that corresponds to your skill level. The scoring algorithm estimates what your score will be, based on your past responses and the difficulty levels of those questions. After each response you make, the estimate is updated, with the results of all previous responses taken into account. The next question that appears is one that the algorithm has selected as the "best" to confirm the machine's suspicions about your predicted result. Oh, and another thing: the aptness of the next question is determined not only by question difficulty but also by question type and skill type. In other words, you will be sure to get a blend of questions that covers all kinds of GMAT test concepts at the appropriate difficulty level. At the start of a multiple-choice section, you are given a problem in the middle of the difficulty scale. At this early stage, the difficulty adjustments are dramatic: correct answers cause the questions to get harder quite quickly, while wrong answers quickly make things easier. The idea here is that you should get see some questions that are way too easy for you as well as some that are way too hard, and progress to slightly too easy and slightly too hard. At the end of a section, where you land on that spectrum of difficulty is what decides your score. It's not the quantity of questions you got correct, but the quality (difficulty) you have achieved. So should I dump all of my time into the front end of a section? Well, yes and no. You shouldn't do this TOO much as it can easily backfire. You see, there are a couple of things to keep in mind that make such a strategy a double-edged sword. Firstly, the penalties for not finishing the section tend to be steep, so you should always find a way to finish, and to do so without having to make a huge number of guesses in the final stretch. Secondly, if you invest too heavily timewise into, say, the first ten or fifteen questions and this strategy succeeds- i.e. you get all of them right- you will end up facing extremely difficult questions early on. These questions will be huge time sponges practically by definition, so again you'll be setting yourself up for the possibility of a disaster brought on by not finishing. On the other hand, making a significant number of errors in the early game will set you in bad stride, causing you to have to fight your way back uphill the whole way. It’s all about knowing what level you’re capable of achieving, and striking a balance regarding time distribution. More to come soon. We still have to talk about what it means for a question to be "difficult" to begin with. Join us in class!

  22. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- On the day Dennis Felton was hired as Cleveland State's new basketball coach, he said something about adding players from overseas. I believe he mentioned it at least twice at the March 24, 2017 press conference. Other than remembering the comment, I didn't pay much attention to it. Then I heard about Uros Plasvic. I'm talking about 7-foot-1, 215-pound Uros Plasvic from Serbia. Plasvic is playing for Hamilton Heights Christian Academy in Chattanooga, Tennessee. "Uros has committed to play at Cleveland State," said Zach Ferrell, his high school coach. Cleveland State can't comment on Plasvic because he has not officially signed with the Vikings. But according to Ferrell, Plasvic is headed to CSU. He will join fellow Serbian Stefan Kenic with the Vikings. "Not many people know about Uros," said Ferrell. "He just came to us in October. He still has a lot of developing to do. If he had been with us a year ago (as a junior), a lot of major schools would be after him." Ferrell talked about the influence of Drazen Zlovaric, a Cleveland State assistant coach from Serbia. Zlovaric played for current CSU coach Dennis Felton in 2008-09. That's when Felton was the head coach at Georgia. Zlovaric finished his college career at Tennessee-Chattanooga, where he was s teammate of Ferrell -- the Hamilton Heights coach. Cleveland State is hoping Zlovaric can give the Vikings a recruiting pipeline in basketball rich Eastern Europe. He's off to a good start. THINKING BIG Plasvic plays for a Hamilton Heights team that has players from seven different countries. For several years, the team has been a basketball version of the United Nations. Their graduates include Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (a native of Canada), a freshman averaging 12 points for Kentucky. They have Nickeil Alexander-Walker (Canada) averaging 11.9 points as a freshman for Virginia Tech. Those two were roommates at Hamilton Heights. Abdul Ado (Nigeria) is averaging 7.1 points as a freshman for Mississippi State. Current Hamilton Heights junior Jason Jitoboh (Nigeria) has offers from several SEC schools, according to Ferrell. Hamilton Heights has sent a lot of players over the years to Division I colleges. Plasvic is playing against major competition. He scored 16 points and had eight rebounds against Oak Hill Academy, ranked No. 13 nationally by USA Today. In 17 games this season, Plasvic is averaging 8.1 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 18 minutes per game. Looking at his stats, he goes up and down. Plasvic had 21 points and 14 rebounds in his last game. The game before that, it was four points and two rebounds. He has dealt with some foul trouble and a few minor injuries. "It's been a big cultural adjustment for him," said Ferrell. "He is still learning English. This is his first time in America. He's playing with kids from all over the world. We have players from China, Turkey, France, Russia and the Bahamas. He just needs some patience. He'll be terrific." Ferrell said the 19-year-old center has never even been to Cleveland. Last year, he attended Medical School of Belgrade. "He committed to Cleveland State because of Drazen (Zlovaric)," said Ferrell. COMING TO CLEVELAND Stefan Kenic is the first Zlovaric recruit. The 6-foot-9 freshman is averaging 8.3 points and 3.1 rebounds. "I came to Cleveland because of Coach Drazen," he said. "Serbia is a small country. He played pro ball there. All the basketball players know each other." Zlovaric said he first heard Kenic planned to turn pro after high school in Belgrade, but then decided to go to college. "Then I heard he wanted to go to school, so I recruited him," said Zlovaric. Kenic said he had offers from St. Bonaventure, Hofstra, UC-Santa Barbara and about 10 different mid-major programs. "I came to Cleveland for a visit in May," said Kenic. "I liked it. There are a lot of Serbians here. I know some people here already who used to live in my old neighborhood." As Kenic said, "For a small country, Serbia has lots of good basketball players." Cleveland State is in a building stage with Felton. The Vikings are 4-15 overall, 1-5 in the Horizon League. The Vikings are extremely small and being out-rebounded by 8.1 per game. "I played last year (on an amateur team) with Uros," said Kenic. "He is very tall, very long arms. We need him. I told him that. I told him that he'll like Cleveland. We can do something good here."

  24. Serbia native now calls Macomb home

    Aneta Gocmanac is a Western Illinois University sophomore, who was born and raised in Krusevac, Serbia. It wasn’t until three years ago that she had ever stepped foot in the United States. That day, which she remembers clearly, was the best and the worst day of her life.  Gocmanac had left the only life she had ever known behind, but on the other hand, she had always been inclined towards a challenge, and moving to the other side of the world was just that.  In Serbia, Gocmanac was a fierce competitor, trying her hand at dance, ballet, theater, volleyball, karate, swimming, soccer and gymnastics. In 2005, she was even a European Dancing Champion for her age group.  In the classroom, she worked equally as hard. Unlike in the United States, in Europe, students test into specialized high schools where they have a major, and when they graduate they receive a certificate for their sector. Gocmanac’s sector was Language, and by the time she graduated, she had a firm grasp on German, Latin, French, Bosnian, Macedonian, and Croatian and the five dialects of Serbian.  Gocmanac distinctly remembers June 28, 2015, as the day the United States became her home.  It was the day she was greeted by an entirely new culture, etiquette and system of laws.  “Being at a new school is hard enough, but being on a new continent is scary,” Gocmanac said.  Instead of cowering, she quickly made the foreign country her home. In the one year she spent at Hinsdale Central High School, Gocmanac was a member of nine clubs. One of which, the Video Game Club, she was elected president of.  At Western, Gocmanac has been no less involved. Last year she was in a two-person play, “Where have all the Lightning Bugs Gone.” She joined the University Union Board, on which she held the position of Welcome Week Leader and Chair of Collaborations and Traditions. She also joined Delta Zeta and played intramural volleyball with enough time for her psychology Pre-Med major and neuroscience minor.  “The first time I stepped foot on Western’s campus, I felt at home”, Gocmanac said. And ever since, she’s been glad she made Macomb her new home.  “I fell in love with the people here,” Gocmanac said. “They’re like family to me now, and I miss my friends in Serbia, but I wouldn’t trade being a Leatherneck for anything”. Marty Rogers, Courier Staff January 19, 2018 https://westerncourier.com/39901/news/serbia-native-now-calls-macomb-home/
  25. The Colleges That Change Lives Scholarship was established in 2016 to honor the 20th anniversary of the publication of the first edition of Loren Pope’s classic book and the 10th anniversary of the non-profit organization, Colleges That Change Lives.

  28. The stands were mostly empty, having filtered out considerably after the preceding game featuring Whitnall and Waunakee at the Wisconsin Basketball Yearbook Shootout in Mequon on Dec. 27. Greendale needed to manufacture its own energy for the battle with Port Washington, and Vlado Zrnic provided. His putback dunk served as a highlight when the Panthers scored a 57-48 victory. "I wouldn't call it 'LeBron James crazy' or anything like that, but it was cool," the Panthers senior said. "We knew everyone was going to clear out (of the gym). We had to figure out a way to bring our own energy, so we were hyping each other up in warmups and stuff, whatever we could to get going and flowing." The earlier game had featured Whitnall standout Tyler Herro, committed to the University of Kentucky, and undefeated Waunakee. Played between the holidays at Concordia University, the event usually features impartial crowds, and thus the energy isn't always optimal, anyway, so a 9 p.m. game in the aftermath of the night’s signature battle was a tough sell. It meant not many people took the opportunity to watch Zrnic, who averages better than 20 points and nine rebounds per game for Greendale (6-4). The 6-6 senior has emerged as one of the area’s top scoring threats after scoring 12 per game last year. “He came in over the summer to work on ball handling and shooting drills with some of our incoming freshmen,” Greendale coach Ryan Johnsen said. “I think that is very rare for a senior to do. “Also, after practice, most kids get up some shots, but Vlado will get out cones and be working hard by himself when nobody is watching, working on moves and game speed, every single time. Most kids don't have that own individual work ethic to push themselves like that.” Zrnic averages 20.3 points, 9.7 boards, 1.7 assists and 1.1 blocks per game. He’s the team’s lone returning scorer among its top four last season, and he knew it. “I knew this year, I was going to have to be the leader and scorer,” he said. “A lot of teams are coming to double me, and then I’m looking for that guy on the wing to pass out for a three. It’s helpful when there’s more attention for me to distribute.” Johnsen said Zrnic has improved everything, from his 3-point shooting to his post moves. “He really has turned himself into an all-around player by his work ethic on the court, as well as dedication to weight room and speed workouts,” Johnsen said. “He not only loves to get better on the court but wants to get stronger and more explosive. It has paid off nicely so far for him.” Ties to Serbia Zrnic’s father and maternal grandparents were all born in Serbia; his father and mother met vacationing in Greece. Zrnic’s first language was Serbian before his family moved to Greendale when he was 5, and his family is deeply involved in the culture. He’s made four trips to Serbia, including once last summer to visit his aunt and grandparents. “We always go at least a week, and usually two or three weeks,” he said. “My grandparents live in an apartment in Belgrade … and they have a weekend house about an hour outside the city in a mountainous area, with a nice forest their and their own garden. Everything is fresh there.” Zrnic said Belgrade, the capital city surrounded by the Danube and Sava rivers, will see major new construction coming to the downtown area and riverfront by 2022. “There’s a lot of development happening there right now,” he said. He still understands Serbian well and can speak it when called upon. “It’s a huge community (in Milwaukee),” Zrnic said. “I wouldn’t say it’s as big as the Italian or Greek community, but it has a large presence. I can name 10 other people at my school alone who are Serbian, and a lot of them are my friends.” Basketball family Zrnic said even though he isn’t a member of the Johnsen family, he still took the loss personally last year when Greenfield, coached by then first-year coach Kyle Johnsen — Ryan’s younger brother — defeated Greendale. There wouldn’t be a repeat. Greendale handled Greenfield on Dec. 22, 66-43, and Zrnic was the only player on the floor in double figures, with 23. “I definitely think we’ve shown we can beat anybody or lose to anybody,” Zrnic said. “The Woodland West is such a tough conference to play in. We came so close to Eisenhower, within 2 points, and we came out on top against Pius, which has some super solid players.” In a division featuring Pewaukee, Eisenhower, New Berlin West and Wisconsin Lutheran, the Panthers could still be a fly in the ointment when the star-studded Division 2 postseason rolls around, even as powerhouses like Whitnall, Milwaukee Washington and Pewaukee are seen as local favorites for the same state berth in Division 2. The Panthers have done it before, making eye-opening runs to state in 2014 and 2015. It would be a perfect platform for Zrnic, who came out of the gate firing with 33 points in the first game of his junior season and duplicated the feat with 33 to open this year — although this time, he’s sustaining a high scoring average. “I’m talking to a couple D3 schools and starting to get some D2 interest, with a possible walk-on opportunity at the D1 level,” Zrnic said. “I’m really excited to see what happens.” https://www.jsonline.com/story/communities/southwest/sports/2018/01/05/greendales-vlado-zrnic-averaging-close-double-double-has-unique-serbian-heritage-and-uncommon-work-e/1003930001/
  29. After witnessing her older brother Srdjan's experience, 18-year-old Aleksandra Ristic would make her journey to live with George and Vickie Anderson of rural Raymond and attend Lincolnwood High School as a foreign exchange student for the duration of the 2017-18 school year. "I saw my brother come here and I wanted to improve my English," said Ristic. "I wanted to see something new. I love to travel." Because the Andersons hosted her brother almost seven years ago, Ristic's family requested she be placed in the same home. "The family requested and wanted her in this area if possible because Srdjan loved it so much," said host mom Vickie. Ristic is the first girl out of 13 exchange students, and will more than likely be their last as they've adopted four sisters, who make their home a little busier. Ristic's hometown is Paracin, a municipality in the Pomoravlje District of Central Serbia, with a population of over 24,000. Prior to coming to the United States, she had taken English classes in high school, but her teachers weren't very fluent in English, so she didn't learn the language as much as she had hoped. Fluent in Serbian, she is also familiar with German after studying the language for a month in Austria, where she was able to meet people from all around the world. "In the beginning, it was more difficult doing homework with translation, but she has improved well," said Vickie. In Serbia, Ristic attends 12 classes a day, with her schedule changing every two weeks from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. to 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. She also said she was able to choose her classes here, but back home she attends different classes each day. A junior at Lincolnwood High School, she is studying management, probability and statistics, biology, English 4, math, government and global, advisory and world history. Ristic added she enjoys her math and statistic classes. Not only is she enjoying her classes, she is also involved in extracurricular activities, including volleyball this past fall. She is also thinking about playing softball in the upcoming season. Ristic hopes to graduate from Lincolnwood in the spring so she won't have to return to school once she arrives home, where most of her friends will have already graduated. Following her high school graduation, she plans to further her education in Serbia in computer or dentistry work, where schooling is less expensive. When she isn't at school, she enjoys shopping, playing volleyball, four-wheeling, and has enjoyed the dances she has attended so far, including homecoming this month. Ristic also enjoys attending some youth events with her host family's church, the First Baptist Church in Litchfield. In her home country, it is common to spend a lot of time with friends, so she enjoys being able to hang out with friends, as well as skiing, spending time and traveling with her parents, watching movies and going to the gym. "When Srdjan was here, Lamar, who was living at home, would take Srdjan out to do things, so her experience here is a little different than her brother's," said Vickie. She recently had the opportunity to visit Chicago and St. Louis, MO, when her brother came to visit during his winter break from college in Louisiana. When asked about the changes she's encountered, Ristic said the countries are very similiar, but there is a lot more fast food and "sweets" here. Ristic admits she was "a little nervous" when she first arrived and felt slightly homesick during her second month here, but she has enjoyed her experience as a foreign exchange student, and looks forward to the duration of her time in Raymond. by: Bethany Martin http://www.thejournal-news.net/news/local_news/anderson-family-hosts-a-second-serbian-student/article_c5eb6f78-ef65-11e7-ae7a-2f2c83f86b8b.html
