THS: Prolonged corona restrictions

The following message is from the THS President.

Hi everyone! In response to the prolonged local restrictions in the Stockholm area, we will prolong THS restrictions accordingly. All of the following applies until December 13th. After that, we will reevaluate and send an update. Events:

  • We will continue having no events in Nymble or Osqvik until at least December 13th. Nymble:

  • Nymble, the Bookstore, THS Café and the Restaurant will still be open, but with new updated safety information posted around the building, and possibly even further restrictions than the past three weeks in the number of seats and tables in their respective areas. This because we still want to provide, for the students who really need it, a space to study.

  • Administrators for crucial democratic meetings, may still make use of premises in Nymble, but only the administrators. The meeting itself will still be needed to be completely on Zoom. You must contact [email protected] and ask permission if you wish to do this.

  • KårX will continue to be physically open Monday-Wednesday, but will still be reachable by phone: 08–790 98 51 and by mail: [email protected] during their regular office hours. What will KTH do? The library will keep on being open just as it has been the last couple of weeks, but we don’t have any more information to give you right now on the subject. A formal decision will be made during next week, and we will keep you posted about that as soon as we receive more information.

Extended Elections

Since some posts do not have as many candidates as our regulatory documents prescribes, an extended election period has been opened for these posts.

The posts in question are: International Student Coordinator, Light and sound responsible, Secretary, Auditor as well as Election Committee Member.

The nomination for these posts closes on the 19th of november, and nominations can be accepted until the 25th of november.

Note that due to a technical error in the election system, it was not possible to open an extended election period for Election Committee Member. Instead, the role has been added under the rubric "Fyllnadval" (by-election) since this gives it the same dates as it would have had otherwise. Take note that this means that Election Committee Member is open as a normal election, even though the section it is open under would indicate otherwise.

Mentorship in mathematics

Do you want to develop yourself, sharpen your CV and make a difference? Become a mentor in mathematics!

The mentorship for particularly gifted children is aimed at primary school students who do not feel challenged by the existing maths teaching. This can often lead to mathematics not being perceived as rewarding, and can cause dissatisfaction or mental problems for the children. As a mentor, you meet a group of 2-4 elementary school students, one hour a week via Zoom. Time and content for the meetings are decided by you and the children together. Here you can see a short film where former mentors and trainees tell about their experience. It is not a requirement that you as a mentor yourself are particularly talented, the most important thing is that you have a strong commitment and interest in mathematics.

Information meeting (Facebook event) Welcome to a meeting where we tell you more about what it means to be a mentor.

dÅre 2021 is cancelled

Hello everyone. After a lot of planning and reconsideration, dÅrestaben has unfortunately come to the conclusion that we can not arrange dÅre with a clean conscience, since we feel we can not guarantee a safe event for everyone involved.

There are no other big events that the chapter is arranging right now, and that is for a good reason. It simply doesn't feel right to travel with 96 students up to Åre, where we travel and live together, while FHM is recommending us to not meet anyone outside our home.

We hope that you can understanding where we are coming from, while at the same time we recongnize that this is a dissapointment for many. We apologize to those who had cleared their scheduly for January. If you have any questions whatsoever about our decision, don't hesitate to contact dÅrestaben!

Take care, and stay tuned for dÅre 2022. ❤️

Below is some information about competitions related to D-Dagen.

Win a contact call with Ericsson! 10 participants will win a contact call and a goodie bag from D-Dagens main sponsor Ericsson. To participate, you must:

  • Complete your profile to at least 95% on digital.ddagen.se (number of % completed can be found on the left of your profile)

Competitions are very fun and we have a lot of exhibiting companies that organize competitions! Just visit digital.ddagen.se and check company stands that are open. The companies that currently have competitions where you can win great prizes are Bontouch where you can win a Google Home mini! Schibsted with Airpods! Through Visma it is possible to win a FITBIT! Through Decerno an exclusive laptop bag from Sandqvist and from Deloitte a gift card at foodora! But these are not the only companies. Also check out If Skadeförsäkring, Scania Group and SVT for even more competitions. A hot tip is to look at the companies' stands if a competition or maybe a job opportunity arises!

D-Dagen can not get enough of competitions, so therefore we by ourselves also organize two fantastic competitions!

True or False: Our mascot DeeDee has looked at the companies and created a true or false competition that you can find [here] (https://forms.gle/39kpBCiX6nBBv4SW7).

Speed dating: We also have a competition where you will talk to several different companies during the fair itself. You can find the rules [here] (https://forms.gle/JEifMdc7eUJ3Stco7).

More information about the competitions can be found under each link. Good luck!

Motion writing session

On monday the 9:th of november the D-directorate will arrange a motion writing session.

What is a motion writing session?

It is a opportunity for you that want to write motions for Glögg-SM to discuss motion ideas with the board. The session can also be used to get feedback for a motion that you have written.

Should i write a motion?

Good question! If you have an idea of a change that you think will make the chapter that little bit nicer, then it could be that it is a motion that you want to write. Attend the motion writing session so we can discuss it!

The motion writing session will take place digitally via Zoom. A link to the meeting can be found here.

Ior (sysadmins) is recruiting!

Ior, the chapter's systems engineering/admin group is recruiting officers to help administer the myriad of systems that we use every day. If you would be interested in that sort of thing, send me an email at [email protected]!

I realize that those of you who would read this post in English are probably all exchange students, and have not gotten a lot of info as to what Ior actually does. It's a committee/club that is dedicated to bulding, maintaining and migrating systems that the chapter relies on for various purposes, such as user login, bookkeeping, publishing news, holding elections etc. almost every day. This, like everything else in the chapter, is done pro bono, and the main goal is to have fun and learn together, because KTH does not really teach us much about how to actually build, deploy and maintain live systems.

The chapter "compensates" members by providing access to systems that cost money otherwise, such as an enterprise Github organization as well as a fully paid for AWS account that we can utilize and play around with.

The Google Form that is attached to this post is in Swedish, so I don't know how well that would work for you, so ignore that and just contact me directly in case you are interested in knowing more or taking part! My email is once again [email protected]

Update about D-Dagen 2020

Due to the new recommendations from FHM, D-Dagen has decided to not host the indoor lounges in Gröten and META. Instead we are going to focus on handing out goodiebags outdoors, outside KTH Entré and META. This way we can avoid gathering students, and students can easily keep a large distance from each other when they collect their goodiebag.

D-Dagen hans out coffee, drinks and flyers

Tomorrow D-Dagen will stand outside of KTH Entré at 07.00-10.30 and hand out coffee and non-alcoholic mimosas. Come and have a chat with us, this is a perfect opportunity to ask us any questions you might have about the digital fair that take place next week on November 5. See you there!

META WILL BE CLOSED NOVEMBER 5TH

Hi!

On Thursday November 5th META will be closed as it will be used by D-Dagen. If you want to heat food there are microwaves in other buildings such as Nymble, V or U

Smash Bros Tournament!
