COLLEGE HIRES PROGRAM ASSISTANT

The new program assistant at the Brookings campus of Southwestern Oregon Community College is Aleta Mankamyer.

Mankamyer replaced Linda Brown on June 1. Brown took a job with the Port of Brookings Harbor.

The program assistant puts out the quarterly schedule for the campus. Mankamyer works with the instructors, the college and the high school to schedule who goes where when.

She said the hardest part is figuring out where to put everyone. She said she is already working on the fall schedule.

Mankamyer also writes press releases and, like everyone else at the campus office, answers phones.

She said summer classes began this week, including college level transfer classes. The summer quarter lasts eight weeks.

She said on-line classes are popular because students can choose their own hours to learn.

A lot of people like it because you can work at your own pace, she said.

Mankamyer said most students at the campus work and attend college part time.

Our challenge is to meet their needs, she said.

Special interest classes will include repairing and upgrading computers, and web page upgrades.

A rehearsal and performance class for theater arts will be offered for credit, or just for fun.

The college also holds one-day special interest classes like weaving.

Mankamyer said she is working to put a certified nursing assistant class together for the summer.

Thats the hard part, she said, And thats what I do.

Mankamyer joined the college staff after five years at The Pilot, where she worked her way from a darkroom assistant to digital imaging technician.

You need a change every once in a while, she said of her new job.

Im enjoying it, she said, It has new challenges. Its different.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
