Student case study writing competition: Innovative multistakeholder governance groups

first_img Read Full Story The Berkman Center for Internet & Society is excited to announce a writing competition to identify innovative multistakeholder governance groups and help us understand the conditions under which they are most effective. We are seeking original papers (8 to 12 pages, single spaced) that help us better understand innovative, globally diverse governance groups. The deadline is September 15, 2015.Although “multistakeholder governance” has many meanings, at its core it encompasses a variety of decision-making approaches that incorporate representatives from multiple groups in discussions and the formation of outcomes. ICANN and NETmundial are some of the most prominent examples that come to mind, but multistakeholder governance has a rich and complex history, with many diverse and interesting examples within but also far beyond the realm of Internet governance. This competition is an opportunity for students and postdoctoral scholars to help expand our understanding of multistakeholder governance groups.The Berkman Center, in collaboration with the Global Network of Interdisciplinary Internet & Society Research Centers (NoC), recently examined twelve diverse examples of multistakeholder governance groups. Through this writing competition, we are seeking submissions that will add to this list and help us help us explore other globally diverse and unique real-world examples. From the submitted case studies, we will select the top three. First place will receive a cash stipend of $4000; second place will receive $3000; and third place will receive $2000. Additional awards for honorable mention may be given at the discretion of the Berkman Center.For more information, read the full announcement.last_img read more

Momma on Board

first_imgMy mom is awesome.She’s definitely where I get my adventurous side. Growing up, my mom was the one who introduced me to the outdoors and instilled in me an insatiable curiosity for the world. We went for walks together, rode horses together, saved countless stray cats and dogs and hid them in abandoned barn stalls so my dad wouldn’t find out. She’s smart, funny, caring (almost to a fault), a total goob, and my best friend. She’s where I find the motivation to get up every day and make the most out of every moment, no matter the obstacles. She’s wise beyond her years yet still gets mistaken as my sister. She rocks tattoos on both of her forearms, has the best taste in music, and lets me push her off rocks (okay maybe not willingly).Circa 2011, New River Gorge, West VirginiaCirca 2011, New River Gorge, West VirginiaAs if all of those qualities weren’t good enough, my favorite part about my mom is that she’s willing to try just about anything. Starting tomorrow, my mom will be joining me on the road for the next two weeks. From the mountains of western North Carolina to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, this pretty lady is going to be my partner-in-crime, sidekick, copilot, cooking buddy, Go-mate. The best part? I couldn’t be more excited.Stay tuned for updates from our ramblings and we’ll see you on the road!last_img read more

Dodgers prospect Josh Sborz in a no-win situation for Quakes

first_imgDespite being healthy, there’s a high probability that Quakes right-handed starter Josh Sborz won’t win another game this season.But that won’t change one of the hottest prospects in an already-loaded Dodgers farm system.“I’m proud to go out and give my team a chance to win,” he said.And right now, that’s about all he can hope for, rather than be credited with actual wins. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “They told me about it, but after that I said don’t mention it to me again,” Sborz said. “I want to approach each start like it’s a normal start.”Unless he makes a relief appearance or is allowed to pitch at least five innings as a starter, Sborz won’t be able to win another game this season.He said he does feel better based on what Charlie Hough, a Dodgers senior advisor for player development told him: “You haven’t won a game until you’ve won a game in the big leagues.”He does hope, however, that limiting his innings now will allow him to continue to pitch in the playoffs.Sborz, 22, who entered the season as the Dodgers’ No. 17 prospect according to Baseball America, will most likely move up from that ranking for next season. In 15 starts this season for the Quakes, the California League all-star is 7-3 with a 2.66 ERA, striking out 81 and walking 22 in 84 2/3 innings.What he’s done has impressed Saylor.“Obviously, his stuff is tremendous,” Saylor said. “His slider is borderline plus-plus. And his curveball is getting better.“He’s a great teammate who does what it takes to help the team.”Although he might be end up being a reliever, serving as a starter in the minors has forced him to develop other pitches.“As a reliever, you can get by with two pitches,” he said. “My fastball and slider are my best two pitches, but I’ve been working on my curveball and changeup. Last year, I was primarily fastball/slider.“I think two big things have really progressed this year: My fastball, keeping it down, and working on my curveball.”Sborz, who hails from the Washington, D.C. area, has a brother, Jay Sborz, who made one big league relief appearance in 2010 for the Detroit Tigers and has since retired.If Josh Sborz continues his development, he could easily surpass his brother’s career and show Charlie Hough his first real win.center_img That’s because the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Sborz will be limited to just four innings per start the rest of the season. That’s been the case already for his last two starts despite allowing just five hits and three earned runs in the eight innings. Sborz’s restrictions come from the fact that prior to being a second-round supplemental pick by the Dodgers in 2015, he spent that season almost exclusively as a reliever for NCAA champion Virginia. In 2014, however, he was a starter at Virginia.“We want to limit him, since he was mostly a reliever last year,” Quakes manager Drew Saylor said.Sborz was also primarily a reliever last year as a pro, although he made three limited-inning starts with rookie-level Ogden and low Single-A Great Lakes before joining the Quakes. With the Quakes, he was exclusively a reliever and was key in the stretch run for the 2016 California League champions. Between the regular season and the playoffs for the Quakes, Sborz was 1-0 with four saves in four chances and a 2.20 ERA in 13 appearances.Despite the fact that as a reliever for the Quakes last year he rarely went more than an inning, Sborz isn’t thrilled about his innings limit this year.last_img read more
