CAO is not only show in town

CAO is not only show in town

Most FE colleges operate through the Vocational Education Committees (VEC), and their courses lead to awards from the Further Education Training and Awards Council (FETAC). FE/PLC colleges don’t operate a central applications system, so applicants must apply directly to each college. Applications opened last spring, so many of the more popular courses will be filled by now, but there are still some opportunities to apply.

The FE sector is often perceived as the alternative system for students if they don’t get sufficient points in the Leaving or their first choice in the CAO. But an FE college can be the student’s first choice even if that student has been offered a place in a CAO college. They also offer a fabulous range of study opportunities. The most popular courses include communications, media studies, drama studies, adventure sports, sports management, travel and tourism, business, beauty therapy, boat building and many more.

Many parents and students aren’t fully aware that many students use their FE courses to progress to universities and institutes of technology.

There are a number of ways they can do this. The first progression scheme, the Higher Education Links Scheme (HELS), was introduced many years ago, and under it a quota of places was held each year in specified courses in the institute of technology sector for holders of “linked” FETAC awards, that is, linked in content to the course they are entering.

Higher Education Institutions (

HEI) in the university sector now reserve small quotas of places on some programmes for FETAC applicants, who are presenting with FETAC Level 5 awards in courses with modules relating in content to the course they are applying to.

In UCD, for example, quotas range from three places in Commerce, five in Social Science, five places each in the Agricultural Science degrees, DN010 and DN048, to 20 places in Science, and 25 in Arts, with small numbers in each nursing programme.

NUI Galway holds quotas for FETAC Level 5 holders with specific relevant modules to Arts, Commerce, Business Information Studies, Nursing and Science.

Every HEI prospectus shows the FETAC modules required for the degree in question. CAO’s website provides dedicated information for FETAC applicants, including a list of quotas of places on all nursing courses.

The third progression route is the newest FETAC entry route operated by institutes of technology and some other HEIs. Under this scheme, applicants presenting any FETAC qualification may compete with Leaving Certificate candidates for most courses in the institution in question. They are not confined to specific FETAC quotas, nor does their FETAC course have to be linked in content to the HEI course they are applying to.

Applicants for courses under this scheme are listed in order of their points merit, whether on Leaving Certificate points or FETAC award points. A separate points scale is used for converting the scores of FETAC award holders, usually to a maximum of 400 points. This scheme does not apply to nursing programmes.

The largest VECs, for example City of Dublin (CDVEC) with 16 different colleges, or City of Cork VEC, (Cork College of Commerce is the largest FE college in the country), Dun Laoghaire, Limerick, Monaghan and

Galway, offer the greatest range of courses. In Cavan town, the Cavan Institute is one of the largest institutes or colleges of further education in the country.

Elizabeth Avenue Partnership to host first golf outing

The Elizabeth Avenue Partnership (EAP) is taking to the fairways this spring for a very important cause the continued revitalization of the Elizabeth Avenue Business District.

The first EAP Golf Outing will teeoff Tuesday, May 7, at the recently renovated and redesigned Galloping Hill Golf Course in Kenilworth. All proceeds from this major fundraiser will go toward supporting the organization mission of revitalizing the Elizabeth Avenue shopping district through beautification, safety, security, parking and event programming. A Continental Breakfast will be served while golfers will have the opportunity to warm up at the new 52booth driving range or partake in an exciting putting contest before taking to the links where a to the pin drive and two contests will be held featuring great prizes, including a chance to win a Rolex watch sponsored by Leonardo Jewelers or a check in the amount of $10,000 sponsored by Angel L. Rodriguez of State Farm Insurance.

The newly renovated Galloping Hill Golf Course, sprawls across 271 acres in Kenilworth and Union and boasts a brand new, stateoftheart 45,000squarefoot banquet facility, completely renovated golf course and Taylor Made Learning Center. Characterized by its natural terrain of rolling hills and valleys, the course often referred to as Hill. has a reputation as one of the most challenging courses in the area and is the new home of the NJ State Golf Association Headquarters.

Chairwoman, Ivette ZeikFernicola, who is also a coowner of Leonardo Jewelers, believes this golf outing hosted by the EAP is an excellent way to raise money for the organization while bringing together members of the business community for a great day of golf, giveaways, prizes and a delicious barbecue lunch served out on the beautiful new veranda overlooking the entire course.

EAP funds many projects throughout our district, said ZeikFernicola. fund the Police patrols, graffiti cleanup and many different events throughout the year directed towards children and families. We are a community that helps and looks after one another and we would love you to join us on this beautiful course for what looks to be a very exciting day of golf. opportunities are available for participation in the golf outing at many sponsorship levels such as Event Sponsor, BBQ Dinner Sponsor, Breakfast Sponsor, Golf Cart Sponsor, Refreshment Cart Sponsor, Driving Range Sponsor, Putting Green Sponsor, Longest Drive Sponsor, Closesttothepin Sponsor and Hole/Tee Sponsor. For those who do not golf, reservations are also available to just attend the barbecue or make a donation.

hope that not only are we successful in raising much needed funds, but this outing will be a way to show people not only within our district, but people from outside of our district who the EAP is and what we are doing to better Elizabeth Avenue. Hopefully people will see what a great organization we are and we will have new people wanting to join our board and find ways to help keep our district flourish, said ZeikFernicola.

Emerson Amador of Alligator Property Management will serve as chairman the golf committee which consists of Angel L. Rodriguez of State Farm Insurance, Manuel Sanchez, Sanchez, Sanchez Santoliquido, Salvatore Coppa, Jonathan Phillips, Groundwork Elizabeth and Marco Salermo of Salermo Jewelers.

Clint Bowyer taking shot at Rolex 24

Bowyer, for his part, hasn found the speed in the cars that he might have hoped in recent runs. During the NASCAR Sprint Media Tour hosted by Charlotte Motor Speedway on Tuesday, Bowyer jokingly asked if he should wear cowboy boots and tuck his fire suit into them before climbing into his Ferrari 458 GT.

Overall, though, he deemed the looming race as said he joined the team because Kauffman asked him to.

does so much for us, it like this: If Rob asks you to do anything, the answer is yes. I don care what is in front of it or what we doing, I owe it to him to do that. I enjoy Rob, I really enjoyed getting to know him, Bowyer said.

a racer. That man is dedicated beyond belief to this sport, to us at MWR, and he fun to be around. I looking forward to it. Rui, our other driver, is way good. It been a long time since I showed up to a test and had to work that hard and, honestly, never found the speed he had. didn get a real grasp of the rules of exchange, either. Bowyer says that he wants things to be explained and to have a clear plan for moves especially things like being caught from behind by another racer.

not used to those cars. You see their headlights coming and then I get out of the way, he said. off the track. They could be 1,000 yards behind you, but as soon as I see headlights there no rules of the road. That the biggest problem. Just tell me to go to the inside or the outside and I going to be out of the way when you get there. There no rules. They just say kind of hold your line and we . . . figure it out.

don like figuring things out when a car is 50 miles an hour faster than you. I want to know exactly what is going to happen. I can tell what going to happen if I going faster than them, but if they come up on you, I don know who that guy is and what he thinking and how tired he is a 5 o in the morning. asked how he would prepare for the lengthy event, he pointed to the logo of sponsor 5Hour Energy on the backdrop.

Do designer watches justify the price tags attached to them

in Replica Rolex, by Judson


Do designer watches justify the price tags attached to them

Designer watches are absolutely worth the price you pay for them. However, designer watches must be lumped into two different categories as they are not all the same. The two categories of designer watches are those that are investment quality and those that are merely fashionable.

In watches that are of considerable quality and craftsmanship, for example Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, or even Rolex, the materials used in many of these brands of watches are precious metals giving the watch an intrinsic value based simply on the materials. Most of these watches are mechanical movements which often use precious gemstones such as rubies or sapphires as bearings for the moving parts, and in most cases are assembled totally by hand which means part of what your paying for is the incredibly delicate skill of assembling parts that are so small you can’t pick them up by hand. These watches are made to last not only the lifetime of the original purchaser but they are made to last the lifetimes of many generations of a family. These watches require very little servicing over time, for example a 1964 Omega Seamaster Deville that I wear every day is made of 18k Gold, it has been serviced only once since new and that was recently for nothing more than a new crystal and a simple cleaning. This watch is as accurate as any quartz watch around and still works as good as the day it was made. This type of watch normally also increases in value over time. They are not only expensive time pieces, but they are long term investments as well.

There are other types of designer watches however that aren’t worth half what they cost. For example Kenneth Cole. The materials used in these watches are sub par. The watches are accurate of course, because of the quartz movement, however these are all made by machine and cost very little to be made. There are rarely any valuable metals involved in these watches, save for maybe a bit of gold plating. They are damaged just as easily as any other watch, a simple fall can be fatal to the crystal and they will eventually fall apart at the seams in the case of the one that I owned. Eventually even numbers had to be glued back in place. While this watch did not cost over 1,000 dollars, still 200 dollars is a lot to spend on a watch worth no more than a 15 dollar Timex.

Really the best way to tell whether a designer watch is worth the price is to see if they are still holding their value for years after the purchase date. If they are, then it can be said that they are worth the investment.

Last Updated: December 05, 2008

Watches have a simple purpose: they help you keep track of the time. While some may deem it worth paying a few extra bucks to wear an attractive wristwatch, there is no way the exorbitant price tag of a designer watch is justified, given the marginal utility of buying a designer watch. The watch you pay such a high price for isn’t all that more attractive than your standard watch, and certainly doesn’t tell time any better or worse than the average watch.

An average watch can cost $2030. Many attractive watches can be had for $60100. However, designer brands such as Rolex, Longines or Omega, can cost much more, often $1000 or more. Some of these watches are made with precious metals such as gold, some are hand crafted and rare, and many include diamonds and other rare elements. These are purchased and worn not as timekeeping devices, but as expensive jewelry.

This leads to the question: why not just buy jewelry? Jewelry typically requires far less maintenance. Some pricier watches are often mechanical (rather than battery powered) and spring powered, requiring a pricey watchwinding device (which often costs at least $100, if not more) to keep them operational. Others have delicate glass or other parts that require regular, often costly maintenance. So you’re certainly not paying the premium for a better time keeping device, as the watch requires more maintenance, and expensive equipment to do so, to accurately keep time.

Cheaper watches generally aren’t all that unattractive. Whether digital or analog (though a nicer watch is almost always analog), an average watch has a reasonably attractive leather or metal band and an attractive crafted face under glass, with the only exception being the bulkier digital watches (though those are in the minority in a store’s watch cases). Aside from precious gems or metals, the difference in composition between a typical watch and a Rolex is relatively small. Both have adjustable straps, both have crafted faces that are aesthetically pleasing, and both tell time (and sometimes the date). Many knockoff watches resemble the designer brands, with metal bands and designed faces that strongly resemble the name brands, but retail at a far lower price.

Granted, such an argument will typical fall on deaf ears: rich citizens with large amounts of disposable income will buy what they please for any reason. A $1000 Rolex or Omega watch will hardly break their backs. But for the rest of us for whom such a sum is still a fairly big deal, there’s no need to pay the premium for a designer watch. An attractive wristwatch can be had for cheap if your aesthetic standards aren’t high. And even if you do want a designer watch, a knockoff brand can do the trick. No one who is reasonable is going to grab your wrist and peer through the glass to make sure your Rolexesque watch is a Rolex. As long as it looks great and tells you what time it is, it’s a great watch no matter what name is inside the glass.

Diego Maradona issues verbal appeal to Italian authorities to clear name in tax evasion case

Diego Maradona issues verbal appeal to Italian authorities to clear name in tax evasion case

“I didn’t kill anyone,” the Argentine great said Tuesday at a news conference, surrounded by his lawyers and bodyguards. “I’m here to seek justice.”Maradona’s Italian debts of nearly 40 million (more than $50 million) stem from supposed unpaid taxes during the time he played for Napoli from 198491, a period in which he helped the club win its only two Serie A titles.Maradona said Napoli club officials were responsible for his playing contract with the team.”Why do I have to pay and not them?” he said. “I’m a victim because I earned a lot but I didn’t know anything about contractual questions. I’m showing my face because I didn’t kill anyone.”If (Italian) President (Giorgio) Napolitano wants to speak with me, I’ll explain everything to him,” Maradona added.Maradona’s lawyer, Angelo Pisani, recently said his client won the dispute. But the collection agency issued a statement this month saying it had not “annulled, declared extinct, nor modified” Maradona’s debts.In previous visits to Italy in recent years, tax police have confiscated two Rolex watches and a diamond earring from Maradona, plus 3 million ($4 million) he had earned from appearing on the “Ballando con le stelle” TV dance show.Napoli is currently second in Serie A, six points behind Juventus, and hosts the league leaders on Friday.Maradona will reportedly fly to Dubai late Tuesday but could return to Naples for Friday’s match.The 1986 World Cup winner with Argentina said he wants to return to Italy with his grandson to watch Napoli.”I want him to see what grandpa did and not to be remembered as an evader, which I’m not,” Maradona said. “I want to believe that justice exists. I want justice so I can walk freely in Italy and Naples.”Maradona added that he’s not thinking about a coaching job with Napoli “because the position is already occupied by (Walter) Mazzarri, who’s doing a great job.”

Diving Watch Review

in Replica Rolex, by Judson


Diving Watch Review

Because most dive computers also include a chronograph function, the most practical uses for a dive watch are to serve as a backup tool or to be used in concert with analog gauges. As only truly oldfashioned and somewhat luddite divers fall into the latter category, most scuba divers will want a dive watch they can wear. Choose looks over features because a dive watch’s features are minimal compared with a dive computer.

Divers who will use a dive watch as a practical tool need to keep in mind where it will be used. The clock and its features need to be easy to see in poor visibility, and the bezel and knobs should be easy to operate while wearing thick gloves.

If your dive watch is more a piece of jewelry than a tool, then you should shop for it in person so you can try it on. That should be the rule for any highend dive watch. But if your dive watch is going to be nicebututilitarian piece, you should go some bargain shopping online.

These watches can range widely in price. There are cheap dive watches available for less than $100 as of September 2009, and even Swissmade Invicta can sometimes be found online for as little as $80. But a Rolex dive watch went for up to $8,000 in 2009, and many excellent dive watch models typically cost from a few hundred to several hundred dollars.

The diver who truly needs a watch as a backup is the technical diver. If a recreational diver suffers a computer failure and spends too much time at 100 feet, he is not going to get a dangerous case of the bends so long as he doesn’t dive later that day. A technical diver who spends too much time at 180 feet might be endangering lives. For deep divers, redundancy is important.

fancy cars led to

in Replica Rolex, by Judson


fancy cars led to

A 37yearold Colorado man with a law degree and an MBA robbed himself of a promising future by defrauding a Minneapolis radiologist and the son of his colleague out of $7.5 million. Now, instead of living the life of luxury he’s accustomed to, he likely faces four to five years in a federal prison.

Evan Flaxman of Silverthorne, Colo., admitted to a federal judge in Minneapolis Wednesday that he fleeced Dr. William J. Ford III, a diagnostic radiologist, and Eric Barron, the son of St. Louis Park orthopedic surgeon Stephen E. Barron, and spent their money on Ferraris, a Porsche race car, a Rolex watch and payment of more than $100,000 in personal income taxes. District Judge Patrick Schiltz asked Flaxman whether he knew that his actions were illegal, one of the required elements of the mail fraud charge to which he pleaded guilty.

“At the time I didn’t realize it, no,” Flaxman said. “As it progressed, yes.”

The plea agreement Flaxman signed with the government contemplates a prison sentence of 51 to 63 months, although both sides reserved the right to argue for a sentence outside of that range. Flaxman has agreed not to appeal unless the sentence exceeds the range. Schiltz will decide the appropriate sentence after a presentence investigation.

Court documents describe a bizarre investment scheme in which Flaxman claimed to be a multimillionaire commodities trader and a partner in a Swiss hedge fund. Later, he claimed to have connections with a former KGB agent and member of the Russian mafia named “Vladimir” and warned that anyone who crossed him would pay with their life.

Flaxman said he initially intended to invest the money his friends entrusted to him. But when he began sending promissory notes to Ford and Eric Barron, along with statements showing that their money was earning profits, he knew he was committing a crime.

Ford met Flaxman through the Barrons during a trip to Colorado and sent him $6,959,000 over several years, according to court records. The Barrons have a home near Flaxman’s about 70 miles west of Denver in the Rocky Mountains. Flaxman and Eric Barron became close friends. Postal Inspector Mary Agnew wrote in court filings that Flaxman told Ford that he reminded him of his late father. Flaxman said his father had been cheated on his investments and offered to manage Ford’s money so that nothing similar would happen to him.

He claimed to have a partner named Nicholas Saskowitz who ran a successful hedge fund in Switzerland, but investigators say that appears to be a fiction.

Eric Barron received $500,000 in life insurance proceeds after the death of his brother in a whitewater kayaking accident in 2008. Flaxman offered to manage the money in 2011. Barron eventually gave him $520,000 to manage.
