first_imgGo back to the e-newsletter >Air New Zealand will begin flying the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to Honolulu from 10 May 2016, introducing its popular Economy Skycouch and Premium Economy product and increasing capacity on the route by almost 20 per cent in the process.Air New Zealand Chief Sales and Commercial Officer Cam Wallace says deploying the aircraft on the route will allow the airline to enhance the inflight experience for customers travelling between Auckland and Honolulu.“We’re looking forward to taking the 787-9 Dreamliner to Honolulu – not only will the aircraft allow us to deliver a significant capacity increase on the route but we’ll also be able to improve the experience our customers have on board with new inflight product, including our award-winning Economy Skycouch and Premium Economy product which offers greater space and comfort,” says Mr Wallace.The airline’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft will replace Boeing 767-300s currently operating the route.Air New Zealand is also retiming its four weekly Auckland – Honolulu return services from 29 March, moving from a current morning departure out of Auckland to an evening departure, allowing for better connections in both directions.“Hawaii is a popular holiday destination for Kiwis and Australians alike and these changes will better enable customers based in New Zealand’s regional centres and Australia to fly to Honolulu within the one day, rather than needing to overnight in Auckland as many currently do.  In turn, the revised arrival time in Honolulu allows customers to conveniently connect onto domestic services in Hawaii,” says Mr Wallace.The airline will also adjust one of the days it operates with a current Sunday return service moving to Fridays.  This change will better allow those to fly out of Auckland and kick off their holidays straight after work on a Friday.Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img read more

Lastditch attempt to agree on Tseri Avenue works

first_imgConsultations re-started on Friday between the Strovolos municipality and the public works department with the aim of reaching common ground as to the redevelopment of Tseri Avenue as the project was halted following the disagreement of residents and shop owners on a number of changes proposed.Strovolos Mayor Andreas Papacharalambous told the Cyprus News Agency that the new round of consultations was agreed last month in a meeting with Interior Minister Socratis Hasikos.The municipality, Papacharalambous said, welcomes the government’s positive stance on the matter.“We want a solution that will satisfy the needs of the shop owners and residents, a more humancentric approach,” he said.This appears to be a last-ditch effort to find common ground over the reconstruction of Tseri Avenue, a bustling yet dangerous thoroughfare whose shop owners resist certain changes.Hasikos said in March that a last-ditch effort would be made with the new municipal council and the involvement of state technocrats who were tasked with coming up with a solution acceptable to all.The cash earmarked for the project has been blocked by parliament, while Hasikos had expressed the  belief that petty politics and vested interests would be set aside to pave the way for the money to be released for the reconstruction.Hasikos had said that the talks on a new proposal would be a “short, comprehensive and substantive dialogue with a quick conclusion”.The project has been plagued by delays as shop owners oppose the proposed plan to turn Tseri Avenue into a three or four-lane road with a concrete median strip separating opposing lanes of traffic.The government’s plan was strongly opposed by shopkeepers, who fear clients would have a hard time stopping to shop.In February, the municipal council rejected the government plan, drawing Hasikos’ ire. He had said that no government or minister would sign off on a road that “everyone says is dangerous”. You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoTwo arrested in connection with attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Top NewsWritten by Pratap Bhanu Mehta | Published: September 7 2009 2:38 am Related News There is palpable excitement over the prospect of higher education being seriously reformed The one proposal that has caught immediate attention is a move to depoliticise the appointment of vice-chancellors There can be no quarrel with the desirability of this move According to reportsthere is a proposal to have a collegium headed by an eminent person to make appointments Keeping politicians out of the process is one thingbut having a single body make all appointments is quite another In factthere is something of a misunderstanding about the current system In its intenteven in the current systemthe selection is made by eminent persons But they are asked to submit panelsand often ministries have the last word One simple thing to do would be to remove the role of the ministry; you would still get the eminent panelbut without the centralisation In some ways the logic of this proposal is very much at odds with what the Indian system needs: greater decentralisation rather than greater centralisation To grasp this point one needs to put the VCs role in a broader context We have to recognise that the one institution that is central to the working of universities and institutes is the Executive Council the EC or an equivalent board It is these institutions that are the most politicisedeven more than the VCs office The sources of politicisation are both external and internal; externally because of government nominations; internally because of the political links of teacher representatives More than the VCthe quality and composition of these councils matter to the university These need to be radically depoliticised The Indian system is bizarre in that the ECthe main body that enforces accountabilitydoesnt own the appointment of the institutions head In fact in well-run institutions two conditions are necessary: that the board be of high qualityand that it be broadly aligned with the chief executives vision For the latter to happenthere has to be some direct board involvement in selection Of coursethe current composition of these boards is the source of the problem A real innovation would be to rethink their sizecomposition and function The most peculiar feature of the appointment of VCs is that the appointing committees know almost nothing about the universities they are making appointments to While some of them will loosely canvass namesnone of them makes determinations about the kind of person a particular university needs at a particular juncture There is also no mechanism for conversations with candidates about ideas they would bring to improve a particular university This kind of conversation cannot be captured through the idea of an interview It is more about discussing challenges a particular university faces In some ways the risk is that centralised collegia will continue to exacerbate these distances and gaps of knowledge between the board and the appointeebetween the selection committee and the university In most successful universities outside Indiait is the board-equivalent that is central to the appointments process and an ongoing conversation about the direction of the university In some waysnone of this mattered much because we had homogenised our university system so much The vice-chancellor operated within a fixed set of rules on everything ranging from appointments to fund risingto degree structuresto budget constraints Very occasionally a VC would break the mould with a certain degree of improvised crashing at the gatesbut these innovations would usually not outlast their tenure The crucial challenge for the Indian system is to inculcate more institutional diversityexperimentationand the ability of institutions to evolve their own characterto compete and make judgment calls about where to head next Insteadmuch of the talk is about greater standardisation of the system We want everything centralisedfrom admissions criteria to appointments In some ways creating a centralised mechanism for the selection of vice-chancellors is of a piece with what is referred to as the UPSCisation of academic life It is fundamentally also a symptom of the fact that the one thing we do not really want to contemplate is giving universities charge of their own destiny In our conception there must always be a body unconnected with the university to make so many of the key decisions that define the universitys character There is also another fallacy implicit in this centralisation model: the fallacy of a quick fix If Indian public universities are to be reclaimed they will have to be reclaimed one institution at a timeeach with its own set of challenges It will require the hard labournot just of appointing VCsbut of ensuring that all bodies that enforce accountability in the system have their ideas aligned The one final thing that helped ruin the Indian system was the rise of the professional education bureaucrat In some ways this would not be a bad thing: the skills required to run an institution are different from professorial skillsand you need both personality types But in field after fielda small group of academics exercised inordinate power in committee after committee as gatekeepers of academic and institutional wisdom And eminence was no guarantee of the manner in which power would be exercised While its exact composition is not knowna single centralised committee runs exactly this same risk of empowering a super-class of people; except that this group will now control a larger number of universities all at once Concentration of power ought usually to be an object of suspicion; in the case of universities even more so In principlethere will be one collegium for Central universities and states can have their own parallel structures In all likelihoodparticularly at the state levelthis will merely shift the locus of politicisation to a different level; now it will be at the level of nomination to a colleguim rather than appointment of the VC But it might also have the unintended consequence of concentrating even more academic power Restoring vitality to the university system requires that each university have a distinct sense of its identityit has autonomy in that its functionaries take charge of key decisionsand it sees itself in competition for excellence with other universities Centralising appointments of VCs is a bit like giving a country sovereignty only on the condition that its rulers be appointed from outside If we want really radical reformwe should decentralise appointments and let responsible authorities in universities take charge of their own destiny The writer is presidentCentre for Policy ResearchDelhi
