    Economist Stephen King warned that universities and colleges might fall into deficit if Australia government intended to expand higher education on a large scale.

    Professor King pointed that the plan of expanding the enrollment of domestic students meant that more overseas students should pay full tuition in order to support local students.

    He said that -Where can we find so many overseas students to support local students? Taken the current funds into consideration, the plan of the federal government can only make all universities and colleges fall into deficit.-

    Professor King’s comments are based on the reports of HES. One of the reports reveals that overseas students’ tuition support 1,200 yuan to every domestic university student on average. He said that the only unexpected thing was that the subsidy is too little.

    He also quoted essays from HES and said that the government’s plan to make 40% young people have at least a bachelor degree and goals of universities and colleges are essentially unrealistic.

    He said that -The industry and the federal government want to get more from higher education system. But both sides seem to be unwilling to cost money. And as a professor of pessimistic science, my duty is to tell government and industry that how much you pay then how much you’ll gain. If they want to create top-notch higher education system, they have to pay money by themselves instead of relying on overseas students to support local students.-

    To make the comments more interesting, Professor King has just stepped down from College of Business and Economics of Monash University. There are many overseas students who pay full tuition in the college. They have become the critical capital resources of the Monash University.

    Since the online game is so popular now, Tory decided to have a try. After a period of time, Tory found it quite simple for he could get wow gold, Tera Gold and RuneScape gold so easily.

    pupils were imprisoned Tuesday included in the massive Columbia University narcotic bust. The students stated nothing that morning while they were handcuffed and taken away. The pupils are being charged for marketing narcotics worth thousands of dollars, and they did it straight form dorm rooms and fraternity houses. Possibly if they could find out how to get a payday advance loan they might not have been selling narcotics. Resource for this article – Columbia University drug bust – five students arrested by MoneyBlogNewz.
    Those possible associated with the Columbia University drug bust
    Paying tuition had been the reason given by student for selling drugs. The Columbia Spectator reports that this was the response from suspects in the Columbia University drug bust. 20 year old Adam Klein, Chris Coles, Jose Perez and Harrison David along with 22 year old previous student council member Michael Wymbs were all charged with selling LSD, Adderall, marijuana, ecstasy and cocaine on school campuses in their dormitories and fraternity houses.
    Wymbs had been expected to be released Tuesday night after being the only one prepared to pay the $25,000 bail said a spokesperson for the Narcotics Prosecutor’s Office. The other four were taken away. Rikers Island was where they went. The primary target of the investigation had been really David. An $880 sale of about 20 grams of cocaine had been sold by him in September, as he had been the only one to sell cocaine. The first few purchases by undercover detectives came from David when the other four were in October and Nov. finally introduced to the drug deal game. July had been when the investigation was started. About $11,000 in sales went to undercover officers only since then with the Columbia University drug bust.
    These were good students before
    In terms of grades and extracurricular, defense lawyers spoke highly of the students associated with the Columbia University drug bust. Michael Wymbs said to a detective that his father wouldn’t pay for his tuition forcing him to sell drugs, although he was the Engineering Student Council’s vice president in 2007 to 2008 for his class. Chris Coles was like Wymbs a bit in that he had a clean record and a 3.5 GPA before the drugs. He said paying tuition had been the reason for selling drugs as well. Jose Perez (aka Stephan Vincenzo) is a prestigious Gates Millenium Scholar who has “limited financial ability,” reports to Bloomberg.
    The university site explains that the 2010-11 academic year of tuition is costly. It runs about $41,600.

    Technological advancements have facilitated governments across the world to archive data and records on online systems and devices. Massive computerization and perpetuation of Internet has helped many countries to move towards paperless economy. However, raising cybercrime and information warfare are threatening the basic utility of computers to store information. Countries such as United States, France and United Kingdom have large archives, which run into hundreds of miles. As such, Information security has become a major challenge for all countries.

    Researchers at Hong Kong Chinese University are exploring ways to store and encrypt information in bacteria. The research highlights the benefits of the emerging domain of bio storage, which deals with storage and encryption of information in living organisms. Usually, organizations use ethical hacking to find vulnerabilities and strengthen security infrastructure from data breaches. In this case, the researchers are endeavoring to store large datasets on E.coli bacterium, the familiar source of food poisoning. Earlier research primarily aimed to leverage the reproductive ability of bacteria, which may help in storing information in a group of single-celled organisms for hundreds and thousands of years. The young researchers at Hong Kong Chinese University are striving to devise mechanisms to store more complex information and overcome the limitations of storage capacity. The team of researchers has evolved a technique to compress and split data into small chunks. The mechanism allows distribution of data on various bacterial cells and also maps the DNA to easily locate specific information.

    The research reveals that one gram of bacteria may store information equal to that stored by 450 hard disks of 2,000 Gigabytes. The research comes at a time when Information security professionals in US are finding ways to stop further WikiLeaks type revelations. The team has also devised an encoding mechanism with built-in feature, which offers protection against possible data corruption by mutations in few bacterial cells. As bacteria are resistant to cyber-attacks, the path breaking research has showed a new way to secure information.

    State universities flaunting massive research budgets normally get 10 to 30 percent of their budgets from the state, where the university is located and the balance amount is mobilized through tuition and fees, grants and donations. As a fall out of these financing structure large educational universities, students also receive financial aids and grants to pursue their studies. However, in many universities financial aid to international students is inadequate.

    Large US educational universities often would have substantial international students and faculty populace. For the benefit of these students most of the universities offer support services including run special courses such as orientation to American culture immigration and visa advising, and Spoken English among others. Various programs and workshops on useful topics like effective communication are also offered for international students.

    If you are a self driven student who wants to make it big in your life all you need to do is to investigate the opportunities galore in higher education.

    An assessment carried out by All About Uni found that Scotland has the highest density of the World’s Top-500 universities in the United Kingdom. All About Uni is an independent, global and interactive website where visitors can obtain information about universities (global rankings, student reviews, university news and campus pictures).

    The Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) is produced by the Institute of Higher Education at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Several indicators of academic or research performance are used to establish the ranking, these include highly cited researchers, articles indexed in major citation indices and staff winning Nobel Prizes.

    The Worlds Top-500 universities (2008) are mainly located in Europe (n=210; 40%), the Americas (n=190; 40%) and the Asian/Pacific region (n=100; 20%). There are 42 (8%) universities located in the United Kingdom (UK), representing 20% of the universities in Europe.

    The top-10 universities in the UK are: University of Cambridge (ranked 4th in the world), the University of Oxford (10th), University College London (22nd), Imperial College London (27th), The University of Manchester (40th), University of Edinburgh (55th), University of Bristol (61st), University of Sheffield (77th), Kings College London (81st) and University of Nottingham (82nd).

    The UK has the highest number of universities in the Worlds Top-500 universities (42) compared to the other European countries: Germany (40), France (23), Italy (22), the Netherlands (12), Sweden (11) and Spain (9). In the ranking of Europe’s Top-10 universities, five are located in the UK and in the Top-25 universities, 9 are located in the United Kingdom.

    The UK universities are located in following regions: England (34), Scotland (5), Wales (2) and Northern Ireland (1). An interesting difference is that universities in Scotland are much older than in the other three regions: the median age of the Scottish universities is 513 years (range 127-598) compared to 101 years (range 39-912) in England and 107 years (range 88-125) in Wales.

    In order to make a comparison with other industrialized countries, All About Uni calculates the number of universities in the Worlds Top-500 (2008) per one million inhabitants. The overall number of universities per million inhabitants in industrialised countries is 0.5. An earlier assessment found that small countries in Western Europe (Sweden (1.2), Finland (1.1) and Switzerland (1.0)) and New Zealand (1.2) have the highest number of universities per million inhabitants.

    The number of universities in the Worlds Top-500 universities that are located in the UK is 0.7 per million inhabitants, which compares favourably with other large industrialized countries: Canada (0.6), Germany (0.5), United States (0.5), France (0.4), Italy (0.4) and Japan (0.2). For the four regions of the United Kingdom, the numbers are as follows: Scotland (1.0), England (0.7), Wales (0.7) and Northern Ireland (0.6).

    Conclusions
    Within the UK, Scotland has a much higher density of top universities compared to England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Scotland also performs very well compared to other industrialised countries and the number of Scottish universities per million inhabitants is one of the highest in the world.
