St. Thomas University To Dedicate Biscayne College Mimi Dooner Hall

MIAMI, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In 1961 a small Catholic men's college emerged in North Dade County thanks to Augustinian friars who traced its roots to the Universidad de Santo Tomas de Villanueva in 1946 Havana. After Castro's regime confiscated the school's land and expelled faculty, priests, administrators, and students, the Diocese of Miami invited the Augustinians to start a new college in Miami – Biscayne College – meeting the education/transition needs of the Cuban exiles. By 1984, with the establishment of the School of Law and other graduate degree programs, the School, now coeducational, became St. Thomas University (www.stu.edu).

What is now Kennedy Hall will be renamed Biscayne College Mimi Dooner Hall on March 19, 2014 honoring John and Cindy Dooner as the College is rededicated in memory of their daughter Mimi. The official dedication starts with a 12:00 PM Mass at the Chapel of Saint Anthony, followed by the building dedication, a luncheon, and tours of the facility. Media members are invited to join the entire St. Thomas University community for the ceremonies and luncheon.

As the original school of St. Thomas University, Biscayne College embodies the values and traditions of the University, developing intellectual leadership that will contribute to broaden an understanding of the peoples of the world. "Great things are already in the make since the College and other St. Thomas' schools embarked on their Blueprint for Leadership transforming plan," said Biscayne College Chair and University Trustee Alex Penelas, also an STU alumnus and former faculty member. "St. Thomas University is poised to become the best Catholic university in the Southeast."

Biscayne College's Honors Program, psychology, criminal justice and graduate counseling degrees are thriving under the academic direction of Dean Scott Zeman. There is a remarkable writing culture. A new center is incubating social justice leaders who contribute to a better quality of life in Florida and the Caribbean Basin.  Students learn to understand and evaluate the human experience in all its diversity.

Global leadership students become part of the 100-plus-year-old international Pax Romana NGO movement of more than 400,000 intellectuals, professionals, and university students in 80 countries. Internships and study-tours with Pax Romana include the United Nations in New York, Paris, and Rome while students also have the opportunity to participate in conferences around the world.

The new Institute for World Languages and Culture will support the University's core values of student success and global diversity as well as the vision that every student will have fluency in at least two languages and an international experience before they graduate. Students will have a wide range of opportunities to learn languages such as Mandarin; study at universities in Latin America, Asia, and Europe; and major in interdisciplinary programs such as Global Studies. "St. Thomas is poised to elevate students to leadership positions in a global marketplace for the next 50 years," added University President Monsignor Franklyn M. Casale.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
