El campus de la mediocridad: el caso de la Universidad de Murcia
José Penalva.- 05/05/2011 La crisis económica que sufre España se debe, principalmente, a que nuestro sistema educativo no es capaz de generar profesionales competentes para crear conocimiento innovador. En consecuencia, difícilmente podremos superar la crisis sin una reforma seria del sistema educativo y la universidad. Ahora bien, pocos dudan hoy del estado de incompetencia de la universidad española y, sin embargo, muchos son los que callan sobre la causa principal de esta situación: la politización de nuestra universidad. Por ello, ni hay, ni habrá, voluntad política para cambiar el actual estado de cosas. Nuestra universidad está llena de casos paradigmáticos que ilustran este estado de politización. José Antonio Cobacho, rector de la Universidad de Murcia, es uno de ellos. Su trayectoria profesional muestra que ha sabido estar siempre del lado del que manda. Hijo de un Diputado Provincial con Franco, Cobacho fragua su acomodo profesional bajo el Régimen, apadrinado por Antonio Reverte, hijo del Presidente de la Diputación también bajo el Generalísimo. Gracias a éste obtiene plaza en la Facultad de Derecho de la UM… En séptimo y último lugar, pero obtiene plaza. Al cambiar las tornas políticas en la universidad después de la Transición, Cobacho se afilia al partido comunista y consigue ser Decano de su Facultad. Además. El voto de IU le vale para ser nombrado consejero en el Consejo Jurídico Regional, cargo que conlleva una suculenta remuneración económica. A finales de la década de 1990 la fuerza política mayoritaria en la UM es http://www.elconfidencial.com/cuestion-escolar/2011/campus-mediocridad-universidad-murcia-20110505-7320.html 1/5

socialista, como, de otro lado, sucede en la universidad española tras la LRU de 1983. Desde entonces, varios han sido los profesores que han intentado reunir la fuerza política de esos académicos bajo el mandato de un rector. A tal fin, las alianzas entre catedráticos han sido diversas, y las puñaladas inter e intra-departamentales sin número. El objetivo último de esas luchas intestinas es de carácter político: el rectorado sólo es un medio para hacerse con la influencia política de la región. En el año 2007, Antonio Reverte, ahora destacado socialista y miembro de varias asociaciones juristas de la región, consigue imponer su candidato y Cobacho es nombrado rector. Sobra decir que, para tal menester, Cobacho abandona inmediatamente el partido comunista y se afilia al socialista. De ese modo, desde 2007 al 2010, Cobacho, siempre apadrinado por Reverte, se ha estado postulando como el candidato socialista a la presidencia de la Región de Murcia. Y medios no le han faltado: amigos en las Cajas regionales, amigos en el periódico regional de más tirada, amigos en los Juzgados (de hecho, la Facultad de Derecho se alimenta de personal de los Juzgados, y viceversa), etc., etc. Así se forja la política: con una tupida tela de araña. El chiringuito universitario Desde que fuera nombrado rector en 2007, Cobacho ha convertido el rectorado en un auténtico coto de poder. Ha colocado a profesores amigos en los puestos estratégicos: Ataz (profesor sin oposición, pero sobrino del Magistrado), Reverte, Lomba, y otros profesores de su círculo de la Facultad de Derecho. Se ha rodeado de toda una cohorte de juristas en formación, profesores sin oposición, y, para ello, no le ha dolido en prendas aumentar estrepitosamente los cargos de libre designación, con el consiguiente aumento del gasto universitario. Con esa cohorte ha conformado la universidad a su gusto, y la ha utilizado incluso para excluir y expulsar de la universidad a quien le hiciera sombra, o hiciera sombra a sus profesores amigos y conmilitones. Mano de hierro en guante de terciopelo. Esa es la táctica. http://www.elconfidencial.com/cuestion-escolar/2011/campus-mediocridad-universidad-murcia-20110505-7320.html 2/5

El objetivo último de esas luchas intestinas es de carácter político: el rectorado sólo es un medio para hacerse con la influencia política de la región Y si alguien se atreve a hacerle frente y denunciar sus artimañas, ¿qué miedo puede tener? ¿Qué juez no será alumno directo de él o de uno de sus amigos del rectorado? Y con tal aval, ¿quién se atreverá a presentar denuncia contra la UM…? Y si la presenta, Cobacho ya ha firmado un convenio con el Tribunal Superior de Justicia y con el Defensor del Pueblo de Murcia para que sea el profesorado de la UM (nombrados por Cobacho) quien haga ese trabajo. Por si fuera poco, Cobacho ha creado másteres para los abogados y, consecuentemente, ha dado trabajo como profesor de estos másteres a no pocos de ellos. ¿Quién se va a atrever a llevar un caso contra la UM? Incluso el año pasado, en plena crisis económica, prometía nada menos que 197 puestos en los másteres. ¿Quién da más? ¿Y quién puede diseñar unos contrafuertes mejores que esos? Ese tipo de “seguridad jurídica” quizá explique que, nada más ser nombrado rector, se dio de baja como consejero del Consejo Jurídico Regional por incompatibilidad. Poco después ha conseguido que se elimine dicha incompatibilidad, y sigue recibiendo la suculenta suma. Y otro misterio: ¿cómo se las ha ingeniado ahora para conseguir el puesto de consejero mediante el voto, no de IU, sino del mismo PP? Misterios tiene la vida. Aparte de ese cargo, sus amigos le han nombrado consejero de Caja Murcia y consejero del Diario La Verdad. Es decir, en total cuatro cargos remunerados, que se sepa, a lo que hay que añadir que sigue recibiendo su sueldo como catedrático. Por si acaso, durante su mandato como rector, su mujer ha pasado a engrosar también la nómina de la UM. En consecuencia, seis sueldos para casa: como rector, como catedrático, consejero del CJR, consejero de LV, consejero de CM, y como esposo de su esposa ahora académica en la UM. No está mal para sobrellevar la crisis. La jugada de la excelencia: El Campus Mare Nostrum Pero 2010 ha sido un año aciago para nuestro rector. Sus amigos de las http://www.elconfidencial.com/cuestion-escolar/2011/campus-mediocridad-universidad-murcia-20110505-7320.html 3/5

Cajas de Ahorros han estado rezando siquiera para sobrevivir… No ha conseguido ser el candidato socialista a la presidencia de la CARM... Tras este lance, Cobacho ha sido muy amable con los cargos políticos del PP en Murcia y raro es el Consejero o Viceconsejero que no tiene un puesto en su reino. Buscaba una pieza jugosa: Consejero de la Consejería de Justicia. Pero Valcárcel lo vio venir y no se la dio. Por ese motivo, últimamente Cobacho no para de meterle el dedo en el ojo a Valcárcel: no porque sea la oposición política, no, sino porque no le ha dado la Consejería. En consecuencia, Cobacho no ha conseguido sus objetivos políticos y, para colmo, dentro de dos años le espera una salida vergonzosa del rectorado. Dentro de la UM, el descontento del profesorado es generalizado y se considera que el balance de su gestión es pésimo. No ha hecho nada importante por aumentar la calidad de nuestra universidad. El apoyo desmedido a los profesores amigos ha aumentado alarmantemente las rencillas entre los grupos, etc. Abundando en desgracias, en su segundo mandato, refrendado en la elección rectoral de 2010, es rector gracias al voto de un escaso 8% del total del censo de la UM. Fue el único candidato. ¿Qué hacer, entonces, para salvar los muebles? La jugada de la excelencia: ganar el Campus Mare Nostrum. El Campus de Excelencia es una mera campaña publicitaria de Cobacho. Se consiguió gracias al apoyo del ministro de Educación, Ángel Gabilondo. Cobacho apoyó a Gabilondo hace unos años en su campaña para la presidencia de la CRUE y ahora Gabilondo le ha devuelto el favor. Nada más. Sólo el 15% del profesorado de la UM entra dentro del margen de la excelencia (y todos mis respetos a este grupo). El resto, el 85% del profesorado, es pura mediocridad. Una mediocridad que ríe las gracias del que manda para formar parte del chiringuito universitario, que mira sistemáticamente para otro lado y que espera su turno en la lista. Esa es la mediocridad sobre la que se apoya la politización de nuestra universidad. La mediocridad que lastra el despegue económico de nuestro país. Pero, como hay mucho político en ese 85% universitario, nada se hará, ni antes ni después de las elecciones. Y España seguirá siendo el campus de la mediocridad. http://www.elconfidencial.com/cuestion-escolar/2011/campus-mediocridad-universidad-murcia-20110505-7320.html 4/5

My Fear Analysis

...My Fear by Lawrence Raab struck me as a simplistic poem when first read. Upon the first reading I understood that Raab was talking about the emotion of fear, but once I read it again you couldn’t help but pick up on the obvious personification that Raab uses. I believe that to be the overall literary device that he uses in this poem. He refers to fear, an emotion, as “he” and “mister” giving it a much more personal backbone. “Mr. Fear” shows how Raab has respect for him and what he does. He doesn’t want fear to not exist, but instead he acknowledges fear’s existence. Raab gives fear its own emotions by saying, “Maybe he smiles when he finds the right one. Maybe he’s sorry.” I also feel like in this poem, Raab is talking about a nightmare. Nightmares always induce fear into our peaceful rest. The poem talks about dreams and what fear has in store for them. He also asks fear to make his burden he takes from him to be small and easy to get rid of. I tried to find some underlying meaning to the part of the poem where it says, “Fear, let me have a small brown bat and a purse of crickets...,” but I still wasn’t sure. A brown bat might represent a boy because boys play baseball and the purse would represent a girl. But I was still unaware how it tied into the fear notion. The overall theme that Raab is trying to get across with this poem is that fear is alive. It’s an emotion everyone feels, but it is also something that lives inside each person. It feeds off our deepest thoughts...

Then, how nutrition can affect your life and how you can improve it with Herbalife natural products. Starting consuming nutritional products is necessary to have a good life away from diseases and the products from Herbalife are the solution. Let’s start with the next statement “The most Americans don’t get enough vitamins and nutrients” according to recently surveys made by scientist from Herbalife International of America. The surveys stressed the lack of vitamins and nutrients people have stopped eating and instead of it, they started eating junky food like for example McDonald, or BurgerKing. In my personal experience when I was thirteen I had problems with my overweight and high blood pressure. It was mainly because my family just did not know about the risk of fast food, neither did I. It was a dream to being eating all that tasty but at the same time fatty food. Until, the doctor told me to stop eating it and to start a balance diet full on vitamins and nutrients. I was fighting against it for the next three years after the doctor told me to do that, so my mother find this company Herbalife International of America and we decided to give it a try. We’ve discussed about the how junk food can easily...

...TANSCULTURAL NURSING SUBMITTED BY: HARUNA ABDULLAHI IBRAHIM, MSC. NURSING (1ST YEAR), GARDEN CITY COLLEGE OF NURSING. SUBMITTED ON: 13TH AUGUST, 2012 I. INTRODUCTION: In the health care delivery system, as in the society, nurses interact with people of similar as well as diverse backgrounds having different frames of references and varied preferences regarding their health and health needs. In the provision of care, nurses must acknowledge, respect and adapt the cultural needs of those patients and their significant others through identifying the differences between cultural groups that require health care providers to identify culture specific health and illness practices and caring behaviours that transcend cultural groups and appear to be universal care practices to enable the provision of care that is holistic, effective and culturally competent. The field of transcultural nursing which was pioneered by Madelein Leininger in 1975 represent a shift from the biophysiological and psychological models that dominated nursing in the 1950s as it advocates the recognition of each individual as a social being and must be handled as unique entity having cultural beliefs, norms, values and customs that influence his or her life in all ramifications including health, illness and treatment. Leininger, who was considered the leader and initiator in the field of transcultural nursing, postulated the theory of “diversity and universality of...

I was thirty-five at the time, four years out of law school, recently married, and generally impatient with life. A seat in the Illinois legislature had opened up, and several friends suggested that I run, thinking that my work as a civil rights lawyer, and contacts from my days as a community organizer, would make me a viable candidate. After discussing it with my wife, I entered the race and proceeded to do what every first-time candidate does: I talked to anyone who would listen. I went to block club meetings and church socials, beauty shops and barbershops. If two guys were standing on a corner, I would cross the street to hand them campaign literature. And everywhere I went, I’d get some version of the same two questions. “Where’d you get that funny name?” And then: “You seem like a nice enough guy. Why do you want to go into something dirty and nasty like politics?” I was familiar with the question, a variant on the questions asked of me years earlier, when I’d first arrived in Chicago to work in low-income neighborhoods. It signaled a......

...Insurance for All: A Dream Come True Medical coverage in Africa is very low. Worst still, the underprivileged are excluded even from this very low coverage. For our dream to transform Africa into an island of prosperity to become reality, a number of initiatives such as providing medical coverage for the poor are necessary. This can be possible through the MC²s, which are actually rural development micro-banks whose mission is to drive the economic growth of the underprivileged, and because the underlying principle of the MC² approach is the pooling together of a community’s material and intellectual resources to promote its welfare. For the purpose of better understanding it is necessary to define micro-insurance and mutual association. A Mutual Association can be defined as “a not-for-profit-making and non compulsory association of people driven by solidarity and who through their contributions and by their democratic decisions undertake provident funding and mutual help to cover themselves against social risk.” Micro-insurance is a form of insurance requiring very low premiums from subscribers and whose objective is the optimum satisfaction of personal needs. Principles of A Mutual Association To achieve our objective to provide medical coverage to low and very low income people, we rely on the principle of collecting small amounts from every community member to ensure optimum satisfaction for the individual and the community as a......

...Conservatism Favours Pragmatism Over Principle.’ Discuss (45 Marks) Conservatism, like many other political ideologies has many factions within it. Traditional conservatism, especially paternalistic conservatism very much favours a pragmatic approach. This is the belief that behaviour should be shaped in accordance with practical circumstances and goals rather than principles, beliefs or ideological objectives. However with the introduction of the liberal new right conservatism due to the conservative view of economic and social breakdown, things have started to look a lot more ideological and challenged the pragmatic nature of conservatism. This is where the debate arises. Traditional conservatives undoubtedly favour a pragmatic approach rather than stick to the core ideologies of conservatism. Burke famously said ‘a state which doesn’t change cannot conserve’ which perfectly explains the traditional conservative favouritism towards pragmatism. If a government does not change in order to help all aspects of society and bring in some kind of social reforms there will be revolt by the poor of the country. Conservatives hold this belief due to the belief that humans are naturally imperfect and therefore limited intellectually. Society is too complicated for human’s to fully understand and can therefore never fully understand the political system. Traditional conservatives are therefore suspicious of abstract ideas and systems of thought that claim to understand how......

...Enrico (“Rico”) Bandello who epitomized the rise and fall of the gangster. Edward G. Robinson was the first Gangster star in this genre. These career criminals live double lives as respectable business men, who defy the law, and are tough who also operate under a cloak of fear portrayed as respect. The popularity and appeal of these films during the 30’s was divided among the public. Some would see these films as a sort of participation in the rebellion against a failed government and others would see them as revenge against the bad guys. Hollywood would put the gangster in a mostly retributive frame with the negativity of the gangster myth ratifying the belief in the public enemy system. This would be seen as the result of the collapse of law enforcement in a society or loss of morality, and ultimately social disorder. William Wellman’s The Public Enemy (1931) starred James Cagney as the fast talking and cocky Tom Powers and his most famous line, “I’m on top of the world Ma!” This is an example of a well dressed man with street smarts who is a criminal bootlegger and womanizer. One of the films most controversial and pivotal scenes is when Tom Powers assaults his floozy girlfriend with a grapefruit by slamming it into her face at the breakfast table. Howard Hawkins “Scarface: The Shame of a Nation” (1932) starred Paul Muni as a Immature, power hungry, monstrous and beastly hood in prohibition era Chicago, whose character was loosely based on Al Capone.

...Developing Conceptual Framework Is An Impossible Possibility Accounting Essay Accounting is playing an important role in nowadays society. It provides financial information to the user to make business decision. However, accountants have to follow accounting standards when they are providing the information. We may question what the principle of those standards is. Financial accounting theory was created as the principle in making standards, and conceptual framework for accounting built up. This essay is going to talk about whether developing a conceptual framework is an impossible possibility. In order to talk about this, I am going through some history of accounting, the definition and compare the conceptual framework under different standards. Accounting was created for thousands years ago. It dates back more than 7,000 years which is the time of ancient Babylon, Assyris and Sumeria. (Friedlob, G. Thomas & Plewa, Franklin James, 1996) At that time, people did accounting for their personal need. With the change of the times, accounting no longer work for personal need. People need common standards for stakeholders to use when making decisions. Countries built up Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) to set up rules for accountants to do accounting. When the business is becoming bigger, people find out that it is hard to understand other countries' accounting report. People need international standards, so some international standards come out, Such as......

...BROTHER® MOBILE PRINTERS TELECOM CASE STUDY P-touch® Commercial Labeling Solution Helps Major Telecom Company’s Customers Stay Connected Proper Labeling Communicates Professionalism, Helps Eliminate Mistakes and Service Calls One of the country’s leading providers of voice and data communications had long recognized the benefits of proper labeling and has practiced some form of labeling for many years. According to a senior field service engineer with the company, “we used a typical handheld labeler and typed in information we felt relevant to the application, but often forgot to include something (like the service number to call) or there was inconsistency in the format, making some labels difficult to read.” They tried preprinting their labels, but this presented problems with custom data, and there were so many different applications that it became impractical to preprint so many kinds of labels – not to mention the impossible task to manage the inventory for hundreds of installers all over the country. Handwritten labels solve some of these problems, but they are time consuming as each field service technician struggles to print legibly. Labeling is a thumbprint of professionalism and the company was determined to find a labeling solution that meets their requirements. The company made organization changes, including a new corporate logo which provided an opportune time to identify and standardize on a better labeling solution for the company.

...Martin Luther King's “Letter from Birmingham Jail” strives to justify the desperate need for nonviolent direct action, the absolute immorality of unjust laws together with what a just law is, as well as, the increasing probability of the “Negro” resorting to extreme disorder and bloodshed, in addition to his utter disappointment with the Church who, in his opinion, had not lived up to their responsibilities as people of God. King's justification to the eight clergymen for protesting segregation begins with a profound explanation of their actions, “Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue”. The actions of the African American people are overdue and very well planned as King had explained in the letter. Their quest was to force the white politicians to negotiate and actually heed the requests for desegregation. As King explains, “past promises have been broken by the politicians and merchants of Birmingham and now is the time to fulfill the natural right of all people to be treated equal”. Violence is not what King wants, he simply wants unjust laws to change and the Supreme Courts 1954 ruling to be upheld. Secondly, King’s answer to the clergymen's assertion that breaking the law is not the way to achieve the results the African American is looking for. “Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.
