Converse is an American shoe company that has been making shoes, lifestyle fashion and athletic apparel since the early 20th century.
In his late 30s, Marquis Mills Converse, who was previously a respected manager at a footwear manufacturing firm, opened the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in Malden, Massachusetts in February 1908. The company was a rubber shoe manufacturer, providing winterized rubber soled footwear for men, women and children. By 1910, Converse was producing 4,000 shoes daily, but it was not until 1915 that the company began manufacturing athletic shoes for tennis.
When the U.S. entered World War II in 1941, Converse shifted production to manufacturing rubberized footwear, outerwear and protective suits for the military. Widely popular during the 1950s and 1960s, Converse promoted a distinctly American image with its Converse Yearbook. The Artist Charles Kerins created cover art that celebrated Converse's role in the lives of high school and college athletes.
Nowadays Converse makes sneakers and clothes for individuals everywhere who live creatively, optimistically and rebelliously. They exist to provoke, inspire and go along with them, whether that’s on a court, the green or the concrete, in a club, a studio or anywhere else.

The proposed CTC will offer transplantation capabilities in liver, kidney, stem cell and bone marrow. This partnership will improve and enhance the existing capabilities of ACLDT in liver diseases and further offer kidney, stem cell and bone marrow transplant programmes with the technological expertise of UPMC. Being the first of its kind, the establishment of a Singapore-based CTC will advance and transform the way healthcare is provided in Asia.
ACLDT is one of Asiaâ€Ÿs foremost Liver Centres with out-patient facilities and a dedicated in-patient Liver Ward and Intensive Care Unit to complement its successful Living Donor Liver Transplantation Programme thus providing seamless care for patients with liver diseases. Based in Gleneagles Hospital, it is the first private medical centre in South-east Asia to have performed close to 190 living donor liver transplants.
UPMC aims to share its expertise in delivering world-class healthcare, advanced technologies, including telemedicine and electronic medical records, and management skills with ACLDT. Amongst a number of public and private medical companies in Singapore, this collaboration is recognition of ACLDTâ€Ÿs work and reputation in Asia in delivering high quality and standard of service to patients with liver and gastro diseases.
It is expected the collaboration will help increase ACLDTâ€Ÿs ability to handle more patients from the region, including the Middle East, widen its scope of transplant activities, raise the quality of clinical outcomes and improve operational efficiencies.

Today, it is one of Asiaâ€Ÿs foremost Liver Centres with out-patient facilities as well as a dedicated in-patient Liver Ward and Intensive Care Unit to complement its highly successful Living Donor Liver Transplantation (LDLT) Programme.
ACLDT is led by renowned hepatobiliary expert and liver transplant surgeon, Dr Tan Kai Chah (Dr K C Tan), who started the Liver Transplant Programme at the King's College Hospital London, the UK. Together with a multi-disciplinary team of experienced specialist physicians and surgeons, Dr Tan developed it into one of the largest in Europe and performed many pioneering operations including the first „split-liverâ€Ÿ transplant from a single donor to two recipients.
ACLDT is the first private medical centre in South-east Asia to have performed close to 190 living donor liver transplants as at 30 Nov 2011. Dr K C Tan has personally performed more than 600 liver transplants. On average, ACLDT treats 8,000 patients a year, of which over 90% are international patients from South-east Asia, South Asia, Indochina, the Middle East and Russia.
With a team of highly-trained specialists, state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, ACLDT is a one-stop specialist medical hub that provides seamless and comprehensive treatment for adults and children with liver and gastro diseases.

Located across the NUS Kent Ridge campus, this is where some 2,400 undergraduate students, 1,700 graduate students and 1,000 researchers will work, live, and learn in close proximity.
Undergraduates staying in the Residential Colleges have the opportunity to combine the vibrancy of campus living with an exciting multidisciplinary academic programme. Graduate students moving into the Graduate Residence can look forward to facilities dedicated to the university’s growing graduate community. Top researchers from world-class research institutes will gather under one roof to form loci of innovation at the Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (CREATE).
UTown, which is being developed in phases, will be launching its two undergraduate residential colleges - Cinnamon (that houses the University Scholars Programme) and Tembusu Colleges, in its initial phase in August 2011. Open to all new undergraduates and existing students, each residential college admits up to 600 students. Residents are encouraged to stay for at least 2 years to extract the optimal benefits of residential living and learning.
Each residential college has a Master who will be supported by a team of faculty fellows, graduate tutors and staff. They will develop the academic tone and character of the college. Together with their families, the Master and faculty fellows will live alongside the students.
Students will have a choice of living in single rooms or sharing a 6 bedroom suite. Room rental rates are from S$110 per room per week. Please refer to NUS Office of Student Affairs website for details on the accommodation fees.
Each college is also equipped with facilities such as theme rooms, multipurpose halls, dining halls, student lounges and common lounges. These facilities aim to create a supportive friendly environment, cultivating spirited communities through social, educational and cultural interaction.
With purposeful facilities designed to encourage an open exchange of ideas, this is where creativity, innovation and enterprise will flourish.
UTown leverages NUS’ reputation for enabling research and teaching across disciplines. It offers a new dimension in living and learning in line with the university’s mission to be a global university centred in Asia.
As an expression of NUS’ endeavour to enhance students’ learning experience, UTown is part of NUS’ long term plans to develop collaborative learning communities to engage young minds and maximize their potential.

Stansfield College was founded in 1993 but they will be opening yet another campus in August this year in Serangoon Central. Their mission today is a simple one - to make learning enjoyable. Many of them at Stansfield College including their Chairman and Deans have degrees from overseas universities and they understand the importance of enjoying the learning experience. They have dedicated themselves towards the purpose of their mission as they believe that you get more out of your education if you truly enjoy the process. They also believe that this attitude extends beyond just the time we spend in school. After all, we are all always learning, no matter how old we are so we strive for a simple goal – enjoy learning, enjoy life!
They also know that we enjoy something the most when we can see its true value to us, which is why they strive to offer their students the opportunity which has resulted in their ability to produce many top students over the years, including First Class Honours graduates in their international partners’ programmes consistently, every year. Over the years, they realised that not all interested students qualified for entry into their partners’ programmes and so their range of courses were expanded to include several foundation programmes as well as Certificate and Diploma programmes that allow a student to grow with them and eventually attain direct entry into selected partner university programmes with exemptions, through the transfer of credits. This made University degree programmes available to all who wanted them.
Most of their courses are taught by their full-time faculty who demonstrate a commitment to their mission and core values. They are augmented by a team of adjunct faculty who are carefully screened, many of whom have been with them as effective lecturers for some time.
They believe that people and organisations succeed only through discipline and this is a value they believe in strongly. They focus on moulding their people and organisation through discipline so as to be ‘role models’ for their students. After all, their students learn better obliquely by observation than ‘rote-learning’.
They recognise that first year full-time students need more guidance; therefore their class size policy is to limit the class to 24 and the tutorials to 8 in the critical first year of their Day College programmes. At the same time, they recognise that adult learners prefer a schedule allowing balance between work and classes. Their Evening College programmes are therefore designed with affordability and outside of class support. Their focus is to provide the best guidance to each and every student who enrols with them.

NTU will set up a new medical school, jointly managed by London's Imperial College, which is ranked among the top three medical schools in Britain and among the world's top five in a disused conservation building adjacent to Tan Tock Seng Hospital. Singapore’s new medical school, which will admit its first 50 students in 2013, will produce a different breed of doctors from the two other schools here.
NTU President Su Guaning said its graduates will be trained to tap cutting-edge technology such as robotics to treat patients. The school will not only train the best clinicians, but will also be at the forefront of innovating medical devices and improving health care, he added. NTU Provost Bertil Andersson said the school plans to also recruit 'top-notch' teachers from here and around the world, and that the curriculum will include classes on business, so students will know the nuts and bolts of managing health-care costs.
Straight A's alone will not be enough to get into Singapore's third medical school to be set up by the NTU and Imperial College London. It will also require its students to be team players, relate well to people and have solid communication skills. Imperial College officials want to produce doctors who will not only have sound medical knowledge, but also the 'humanity' to give patient-centred care. Students will be exposed to patients from their first year and deal with them in various health - care settings, including hospitals, polyclinics and nursing homes. Student doctors will also be trained to lead teams and be comfortable with technology.

United World College of South East Asia - East Campus is an international school of approximately 76,000 sq m in floor area located on a site of 5.2ha, comprising of one infant block, two educational blocks, one sports amenities and a student hostel. The campus is scheduled to have a capacity of 2,500 students and to be completed in April 2011.
The campus buildings have been layered in order to maximise the use of available space, with vehicle transit areas, parking, and indoor sport and multi-purpose halls located below the main level of the school. The ground-level of the campus will be virtually traffic-free, providing ample open space and comprehensive sporting facilities, including an Olympic-size and learn-to-swim swimming pools, multi-purpose courts and a full-size football field. All these facilities will be elevated some nine metres above original ground-level, with indoor sports halls and arts facilities directly below.
The design of International School @ Tampines has innovatively intensified and optimised the land usage without compromising on the qualities of the optimal learning environment. An elevated landscape podium deck is created to increase floor areas without further densifying the built-up areas by unnecessarily increasing in the vertical height of the campus, which is not a desirable quality in the design of a school. The creation of an elevation deck also creates a vehicular-free and fully landscaped platform to facilitate student interactions, hence establishing as the key interaction zone for the whole campus. Similarly, the clever use of the large roofscape in multiple functions such as the ball courts, roof garden, solar panel field, etc has also further optimised the use of spaces.
Renewable solar energy, rainwater recycling, efficient air-conditioning and lighting systems are a few key environmental features in the energy management of the school which is an aim of the Singapore authorities to achieve a high intensity of 'green' buildings. The schools boast an extensive area of close to 0.5 hectares of solar panels in harnessing the solar energy, which is one of the largest in the region. The elevated soccer field also doubles up as a rainwater collection catchment area for the rainwater irrigation system within the school premise.
