AUS Professor Dr. Nick Ashill running from Los Angeles to New York

On Sunday, May 14, I started off in front of Santa Monica Pier in Los Angles. I have now been running for over a month and on Wednesday, June 14, exactly a month after I started my run, I arrived in Albuquerque, New Mexico. So far I have run 1,484 km. I have run through California and Arizona, and I am about a third through New Mexico.

Blisters continue to be a problem, but this is to be expected given I need to average 50 km per day. So far I am managing to maintain this figure. My body is tired, and I am taking each day as it comes. The run is not about the 5,400 km distance. It is about 108 runs of 50 km each.

Understanding the importance of building a strong value-based education from a young age, the AUS Day Care Center (DCC) has integrated the theme of recycling in their KG2 program. Children enrolled in KG2 are taught to incorporate the 3 Rs– reduce, reuse and recycle – in their daily life. In order to instill sustainable behavior amongst the students, the importance of preserving our planet and reducing wastage of daily materials such as paper are highlighted at the DCC. Students are also educated to reuse food by using the waste as compost or as food for animals and birds.

Posted by AUS blog on May 11, 2017 12:00:00 PM

By Tayiba Ahmed

In this day and age, where it is easy to post things online while remaining anonymous, we face a lot of issues regarding anonymous messages being sent to people, fake online accounts, and people accused of defamation, liability, or slander. How interesting would it be to learn about how investigators deal with such cases? Fortunately for us, Dr. Tharwat El-Sakran, a professor in the Department of English at American University of Sharjah (AUS), recently became a certified fraud examiner (CFE), licensed by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) in the USA. Dr. El-Sakran will soon be teaching a course dealing with forensic linguistics.

Whether it be by raising funds for Sharjah Autism Center, being a part of the Food for the Needy campaign, or  even renovating a house for an underprivileged family, AUS students have worked to care for members of the wider community. As part of their efforts, the AUS Student Council, Office of Student Affairs’ Community Services Division, and the Indian and Pakistani cultural clubs recently organized this year’s Annual Cleanco and Security Appreciation Lunch to show their gratitude to the cleaners and security guards who are part of the AUS community.

With less than a week before I leave for America, I am making final adjustments to training, logistics and chasing potential sponsors. The realization of what lies ahead of me has not yet hit home. Certainly nerves are starting to show and I am eager to get the first day of running behind me. 

If you are not yet aware of this, my next big thing, well, I am doing this very serious ultra-marathon run from Los Angeles to New York in order to inspire people to dream big as well as to help families suffering from pulmonary fibrosis.
