Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — “There is no firm sale in place at this time, so no decision has been made regarding any particular campus,” said attorney Robert T. Glickman of the US-based law firm McCarthy, Lebit, Crystal & Liffman Co., which is representing Dream Center Education Holdings (DCEH) LLC, the parent company of Argosy University. “Before any decision could be made, it would have to be presented to the [federal] Court and all parties would be able to object,” Glickman said last Friday, in response to Samoa News questions last week on whether DECH has plans to sell or close other Argosy campuses across the US, including the Hawaii campus, which oversees the American Samoa branch. Last month the federal court in Cleveland, Ohio placed DECH under federal receivership, following a complaint and request filed by Digital Media Solutions (DMC) LLC, accusing DECH of failing to pay outstanding debts of more than $250,000. Named as defendants are … [Read more...] about “No decision made” on closure of any Argosy University campus

Rachel Leingang Arizona Republic Published 7:27 PM EST Feb 8, 2019 Facing financial woes and accreditation issues, Argosy University campuses across the country have not paid millions in promised financial aid to students this semester. Students at the private, nonprofit university told The Arizona Republic they're missing mortgage payments, going without books required for classes and skipping grocery runs. In all, more than $9 million in financial aid has not been distributed to students, a court-appointed receiver said, and it's unclear where the money is. Cynthia Morgan, a doctoral student in professional psychology at Argosy in Phoenix, said she has not received about $11,000 in scholarships and federal loans she's owed. She's been waiting since December for a stipend payment for an alumni scholarship she was promised. Because she hasn't received the money, she was late on her January mortgage payment. She wrote a bad check to her … [Read more...] about Argosy University is withholding financial aid. Students can’t pay bills.
The Government is facing calls to take immediate action against the United Arab Emirates after a British academic accused of spying with "absolutely no evidence" was jailed for life. The Foreign Office has been accused of handling the case of Durham University PhD student Matthew Hedges "appallingly" after the 31-year-old was handed the life term during a five-minute hearing on Wednesday. Jeremy Hunt is due to meet with his wife, Daniela Tejada, on Thursday and the Foreign Secretary has threatened the UAE with "serious diplomatic consequences" if Mr Hedges is not freed. Ms Tejada, who was at the Abu Dhabi court, has demanded the British Government "take a stand now". "Matthew is innocent. The Foreign Office know this and have made it clear to the UAE authorities that Matthew is not a spy for them," she told The Times. "This whole case has been handled appallingly from the very beginning, with no-one taking Matthew's case seriously. The British government must take a stand now for … [Read more...] about Calls for immediate government action after Durham University PhD student jailed for life
One of China's top universities has warned students they face arrest if they associate with a labour-rights organisation that has drawn support in a recent surge of Chinese campus activism. Peking University sent a message to all students on Wednesday accusing Jasic Workers Solidarity of "criminal activity", according to a student involved with the labour group. "After today's message, if there are still students that want to defy the law, they must take responsibility," said the note seen by AFP. Chinese universities have historically been a wellspring for radical political movements and any hint of campus activism sparks deep concern among authorities. The warning marks the latest move in a crackdown on Jasic Workers Solidarity after at least a dozen activist and student supporters in several cities were detained last week, according the the group. Rights campaigners told AFP on Tuesday that five of the detained activists had been released. Jasic Workers Solidarity rose to prominence … [Read more...] about Top Chinese university warns students to avoid activism
A BRISTOL University PhD student is set to become one of Britain's richest men after his company was sold for around £600million. Dr Harry Destecroix's company Ziylo has been acquired by Novo Nordisk, the world's biggest maker of diabetes drugs. The deal could lead to the development of the world's first glucose-responsive insulin and transform the treatment of diabetes. The World Health Organization estimate that more 382 million people worldwide, including 4.05 million people in the UK, have diabetes – a metabolic disorder affecting blood sugar levels. Everyone with Type 1 diabetes and some people with Type 2 diabetes must take insulin, either by injection or a pump, to control their blood glucose levels. Ziylo has developed a new technology platform, which could be a crucial component to enable the next generation of insulin, able to react and adapt to glucose levels in the blood, therefore eliminating the risk of hypoglycaemia – dangerously low blood sugar levels … [Read more...] about Bristol university PhD student, 31, becomes one of Britain’s richest men overnight as his company sells for £600MILLION
