Ashland University Philosophy Department sets business ethics colloquium

The Ashland University Philosophy Department in conjunction with the AU Philosophy Club and Phi Sigma Tau are sponsoring a Philosophy Colloquium that will feature Dr. James Stover, assistant professor of philosophy at Wheeling Jesuit University

The event is set for 
Wednesday, Oct.  1, at 4 p.m. in the Ronk Lecture Hall of the Dwight Schar College of Education on the AU campus. Stover, who specializes in the areas of philosophical ethics, ancient philosophy and business ethics, will deliver a talk titled “Business Ethics: Can Aristotle Save Help Us?”  The event is free and open to the public.

This talk is an attempt at a sort of fusion of horizons with regards to ethics. It asks two questions: First, is Aristotle’s ethics a viable system for a person living in the 21st century? Second, is Aristotle relevant for today’s business ethics? This second question became especially poignant at the beginning of this millennium with such debacles as Enron, Arthur Anderson and WorldCom.

Moreover, these debacles were trumped by the recent financial scandals of Lehman brothers, Countrywide Financial, AIG, and others, associated with the financial meltdown of 2008 and 2009. Are there ancient answers to these modern questions? More specifically, what can Aristotle who lived over 2,300 years ago, contribute to how we live our lives and operate our businesses today?

Stover recently received his Ph.D. at Duquesne University, where his dissertation was titled "Aristotle's Ethics: A Viable System for Today's Life and Business." He also has published articles in the journal of “Ancient Philosophy” and the “Encyclopedia of Psychology and Religion.” His research interests include Plato and Aristotle, philosophy of religion, Asian philosophy and the history of philosophy in general.

Second giraffe calf born this summer at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

 

Giraffe calf Adia has a new little half-brother in the Africa barn at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo -- although at 140 pounds and 6 feet tall, he's not so little!

The Zoo's Masai giraffe herd grew for the second time this summer when the as-yet-unnamed male calf was born on September 5 to first-time mom Grace, 6, and dad Travis, 8. He is the 48th giraffe born at the Zoo since 1955.

"Our male giraffe Travis is having quite a summer," said Andi Kornak, the Zoo's Director of Animal and Veterinary Programs. "But in all seriousness, we couldn't be more pleased with the success of our giraffe breeding program. The calf and Grace are doing very well, and we hope to have them outside this weekend."

Grace herself was born at the Zoo in 2008. Travis was born at the San Diego Zoo in 2006 and came to Cleveland in 2008. The Zoo's current giraffe herd also includes females Jada and Jhasmin.

Giraffes give birth standing up, so newborns get an abrupt introduction to the world by dropping up to 6 feet to the ground. They are about 6-feet tall when they are born and weigh between 100 to 150 pounds.

The Zoo participates in the Masai giraffe Species Survival Plan of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Species Survival Plans are cooperative breeding and management groups for endangered or threatened species including black rhinos, African elephants, lowland gorillas and Amur tigers.

Giraffes are native to the savannas of Africa south of the Sahara Desert. Masai giraffes (Giraffa camelopardalis tippelskirchi) are found in Kenya and Tanzania, near the Masai Mara National Reserve.

The Africa barn has a third calf in residence this summer as well - a bontebok was born on September 3. Bonteboks are a species of antelope native to South Africa. The unnamed male calf was born to mom Karoo, 7, who is here on breeding loan from the Ellen Trout Zoo in Texas, and dad Patrick, 10.

The bontebok calf brings the Zoo's herd to five. They can be seen in the African Savanna area of the Zoo in the exhibit they share with white storks and sacred ibises. 
 
Northeast Ohio's most-visited year-round attraction, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is $12.25 per person, $8.25 for kids ages 2 to 11 and free for children younger than 2 and Zoo members. Parking is free. Located at 3900 Wildlife Way, the Zoo is easily accessible from Interstates 71, 90 and 480.

Monday marks a big professional change for me

It's never easy leaving the safety of the familiar for the unfamiliar.

Getting back into the journalism industry after seven years in the comfort of public relations/marketing was the toughest decision of my professional career.

But the journalism bug that started in high school, grew in college and matured at the Alliance Review, The News-Herald and The Independent just wouldn't go away.

So earlier this year, I nervously walked into the Warren Tribune Chronicle to re-launch my journalism career.

It wasn't easy, but it was the right decision.

The staff was fantastic and let me grow on the copy desk, a role I was familiar with from my earlier newspaper days.

The copy desk is a great place to be.

Page design, copy editing and production is something I'm used to and each night, I fell more in love with journalism.

But as my love affair with the industry grew, I really started to identify myself with news planning, story development and working with reporters.

It's something that's a passion of mine.

And I was fortunate to be presented the opportunity to just that.

I was recently named the group content editor of several newspapers for Civitas Media in the Mansfield area, including the Galion Inquirer, Bellville Star, Morrow County Sentinel and Knox County Citizen.

 In this role, I'll lead a staff of five and I'm excited to help make the paper and employees better through the print edition as well as video and social media.

It's a big task, but it's one I'm excited to tackle.

Thanks to the great staff at the Warren paper for understanding my decision and my family for allowing me to live out my dream.

I'm ready to get to work.
