Nova Southeastern University Receives Its Largest Title V Grant Award From The U.S. Department of Education
Lavalle Stadium, Pritchard Gymnasium, the new Stony Brook Arena (coming Fall 2014), and other select athletic facilities. Flash Seats, the patented Veritix digital ticketing system, will be available as a digital entry method for fans and as a secondary marketplace for tickets. Stony Brook University, a member of the America East and CAA Football conferences, selected the Veritix system because it was looking for a ticketing and business platform to more effectively manage its ticketing operations. Set to move into the $21.1 million renovated Stony Brook Arena in 2014, the Athletics Department sought a dynamic ticketing and business platform that would cater to Seawolves students, fans and alumni. Veritix’s fan relationship solutions were the key factor in Stony Brook’s decision to partner with Veritix. “We believe the Veritix ticketing and business platform will provide our fans with a flexible and convenient ticketing experience,” said Stony Brook Director of Athletics Jim Fiore. “Their innovative revenue generating initiatives and fan relationship tools will assist our athletics department in tracking and managing information about our alumni and community members, two critically important components of our growing fan base.” For Veritix, Stony Brook University is another important collegiate partner in a growing list of colleges and universities using the Veritix system.

AFP Photo/Jewel Samad (Photo credit should r Get Media Newsletters: Syria , John Kerry , Media Syria , Syria Chemical Weapons , Syria Strike , Us Military Syria , Media News There appeared to be a hardening media consensus on Monday that some form of American military intervention in Syria is all but inevitable. After Secretary of State John Kerry forcefully denounced an alleged chemical weapons attack in the country, and said President Obama would come up with some form of “response” to the incident, many reporters and news outlets quickly framed his speech as a preamble to a military attack. Kerry, the Washington Post wrote , “left little doubt that the decision for the United States is not whether to take military action, but when.” The Wall Street Journal wrote that the speech was “the clearest indication yet that the Obama administration is preparing to attack President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.” The New York Times said Kerry’s remarks hinted the administration “was moving closer to a military response in consultation with America’s allies.” Twitter was full of similar pronouncements: It appears we’re in the “drumbeat” stage re: Syria w/U.S. officials. It’s coming, question is when, how hard and how long.
