Article 1: Flexible Learning

Author : Dorothy Illing

Title : Flexible learning future

Date : 03/01/2000

Article no : 13

Source : ABIX – Australasian Business Intelligence: The Australian

Summary : Flexible learning is a new, vital area of learning. This is the view of

the University of Southern Queensland (USQ). In March 2000 it is

planning to set up a new deputy vice-chancellor position called

global learning services. This position will seek to enhance the

flexible delivery of services. The idea has flowed from USQ vice-

chancellor Peter Swannell. The incumbent will be responsible for

distance education, library and IT services. Swannell noted that the

focus will be on providing global access in several modes both on and

off campus. The job will incorporate the services of USQOnline, the

programs offered via the Internet.

Article 2: Privitisation of Utility Services

Author : Islamabad

Title : Of what use privatisation of transmission system

Date : 17 August 1999

Article no : 10

Source : Asia Intelligence Wire from FT Information

Summary : The transmission projects would meet the same fate as the power

generation projects. Not privatising distribution network would mean

that the private transmission company would have to ‘wheel’

(transport) the power to the State electricity boards (SEBs). That

means that the SEBs would have to pay the transmission company

wheeling charges. Given the poor financial health of the SEBs,

wheeling to the these utilities would spawn off a new set of problems.

FIs would, for instance, insist on escrow cover to lend to the

companies setting up transmission projects. The escrow mechanism is

nothing but earmarking a proportion of the receivables of the State

electricity board (SEB) to a creditor. But, the FIs and SEBs are

already at loggerheads over the escrowable capacity that the latter can

offer to private power suppliers. While SEBs prefer to offer nearly 95

per cent of their receivables as escrow charge to the private power

suppliers, the FIs are insisting on a 75 per cent limit.
