<![CDATA[TED Talks: Angela Lee Duckworth: Key To Success - GRIT]]> http://www.sckans.edu/student-services/information-technology/news/view/1387 http://www.sckans.edu/student-services/information-technology/news/view/1387 Key to Success

Leaving a high-flying job in consulting, Angela Lee Duckworth took a job teaching math to seventh graders in a New York public school. She quickly realized that IQ wasn’t the only thing separating the successful students from those who struggled. Here, she explains her theory of “grit” as a predictor of success.

At the University of Pennsylvania, Angela Lee Duckworth studies intangible concepts such as self-control and grit to determine how they might predict both academic and professional success.

<![CDATA[New network infrastructure]]> http://www.sckans.edu/student-services/information-technology/news/view/1384 http://www.sckans.edu/student-services/information-technology/news/view/1384 As of August 1st, SC has completely replaced our old networking equipment with brand new state of the art equipment from HP.  These include access points, closet switches, core switches and most other elements in the network other than wiring.  These new equipment basically upgraded our internal bandwidth by a factor of 10 and will allow us in the future to increase by another factor of 10 as needed.  We are also in the process to reconfigure the locations of the access points since the newer technology we implemented gave us a different coverage profile.  For the next few months, as usage increases, we will be able to better monitor and make decisions on where the trouble spots are and adjust accordingly.  Please work with us and call the HelpDesk x6444 if you notice you have low wireless connectivity.
