Dallas, United States - May 23, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Asher College of Dallas is announcing they will provide financial support to students to help cover additional student expenses during the Coronavirus pandemic. The funds are allocated through grants provided by the new Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law on March 27, 2020. The bi-partisan legislation was necessitated by the pandemic that has halted the global economy, forced millions out of work, and compelled students to conduct their studies through distance learning. The CARES act enables the U.S. Department of Education to direct funding to eligible organizations like Asher College, which can then provide students direct financial assistance through emergency financial grants.

“COVID-19 has caused a global health and economic crisis. During this time of uncertainty and instability, Asher College wants to support our students in every way possible.” Asher President & CEO David Vice said. “Thanks to the CARES Act and the U.S. Department of Education, we will be able to distribute much needed financial assistance directly to our students.”

Current Asher students were notified about the availability of CARES Act funds the week of May 13th. Distribution is expected to begin when funds are received from the Department of Education and Asher verifies the student’s eligibility. President and CEO David Vice said, “Asher College is pleased to have been able to secure this for our students and happy to assist in facilitating the allocation of these funds on their behalf.”

Asher College is proud to provide career training for in-demand, even essential careers, including administrative healthcare workers, pharmacy technicians, as well as information technology and business careers. During this unprecedented time, Asher’s top priority is the health and safety of our students and community; all current Asher students are receiving classroom instruction through distance learning, so they can continue their programs of study even through this global pandemic. Asher College is currently enrolling for all programs.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jun 3, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Muslim hajj pilgrims ascend Mount Arafat for day of worship

Jun 3, 2020

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims. One of...

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Jun 3, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Jun 3, 2020

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...
