Madugalla, Justin Jayasuriya, Nalin Mendis, among a number of others that one cannot readily recall now after 75 years. Among the female students of that pioneering batch that come to mind, apart those mentioned above in respect of earlier activities, include the following: Most of the above pioneer students ended up in the top echelons of the Public Service and various government departments — the Civil Service, Foreign Service, Armed Services and Police, the Judiciary while several joining the Central Bank, the University staff and the mercantile sector.

A few ended up as members of Parliament and even as Cabinet Ministers while quite a number also joined various international organisations. However, unfortunately most of the old batch pioneer students are presently no more having passed away in course of time and relatively only a few are still left in the Departure Lounge.

Of the old time professors and lecturers too almost all of them are no more except a few such as V. Wickramesinghe whom I met recently and perhaps a few others. I believe with the demise recently of Prof. Indraratna, the only old professor who is still there and whom I recently visited and paid my respects, is Prof. Jayadeva Tilakasiri Sanskrit who at years is quite feeble and looked after at a private home for the aged in Panadura.

In retrospect, university life comprised days of achievement and delight. We had unobtrusively acquired sound core values which have stood us in good stead in the mundane humdrum world to which we are all relegated in the mould of convention. Rajaratne With grandiosity, the Diamond Jubilee of the University of Ceylon was celebrated at the premises of University of Peradeniya throughout last year.

This yearlong jubilation was orchestrated as a chain of miniature jubilations, by each faculty at a time. This quote has made periodic appearances on several occasions during the past 75 years and the latest occasion was last year and as usual its limelight is rapidly fading away.

The plaque fixed at the entrance of the Senate building bears this quote and states that it was pronounced by H. H the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip in his speech of declaration on April 20, at the opening ceremony of the University of Ceylon at Peradeniya. Many believe that this quote holds a deep philosophical meaning etched to it.

However, for unknown reason, without any meticulous research but only on speculations there have been efforts to rationalise this riddling quote. Less significant speculation interprets the quote to establish the notion that the University does and should operate sans fences and gates and sometimes without walls like the basement of the Senate building.

It is certain that the above interpretations are based entirely on the quote etched on to the plaque while disregarding the rest of the declaration speech. The plaque which appears to have been erected much later generates a fair amount of doubt as it has a mismatch with the content of the original speech.

The University of Ceylon has undergone a series of unveilings and establishments throughout its first 13 years; first, its establishment in Colombo on July 1, by Sir Ivor Jennings; second, laying the foundation stone at Peradeniya on August 31, by Sir John Kotalawala; third, laying the foundation stone of the proposed Convocation Hall on February 12, by the Duke of Gloucester; fourth, the official establishment on October 6, by Sir Ivor Jennings; and finally the grand opening on April 20, by the Duke of Edinburgh in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II.

The successor, Queen Elizabeth II, soon after her coronation, made a series of official visits to several commonwealth nations along with her consort Prince Philip. Ceylon too was on the list. During their day stay in Ceylon, the Royal House had paid visits to a few other places in addition to the University of Ceylon. Trinity College Kandy was one such place. These two sentences bridge the historical and the pragmatic aspects of the most sought after proverb in the literature of the University of Peradeniya.

The persistent attacks devastated the streets of Britain, and shops of the commoner were not an exception. However, to quite their surprise, the British vendors were not agitated even at the slightest. Their resilience, marketing spirit, and sense of humor were portrayed even at dire straits as they kept their shops open. Doors, windows, roofs and even walls were blown out by the bombing.

Or you can let them in on what you really do. You fight the worldwide fight against fraud. Where fraud fighters unite. Ratley, CFE, spoke during the opening general session about the history of the anti-fraud profession and necessary CFE leadership tenets. He pointed out that many of the fundamentals CFEs strongly adhere to today were learned by trial and error. We simply didn't have the visibility that we do now.

Finding the law enforcement agency that had jurisdiction was seldom ever a problem since the fraudulent activity was confined to one jurisdiction. Of our 75, members, more than 30 percent reside outside of the United States. We are also proud to have members in more than countries around the world. Some of these positions didn't even exist when the ACFE started, and others had no interest in or responsibility for fraud.

A college graduate didn't know what a fraud examiner was, much less that fraud was something that could be prevented and detected in a formal way.

In alone, more than 3. That … will leave a huge hole in organizational knowledge, experience and leadership. By , they will comprise over 75 percent of the total workforce.

But we've also committed as an association that the strong leadership must be continuous," he said. And it will be their jobs to select and train the generation that follows.

So while the faces must change over time, we will always be true to the ideals we began with — to be the finest professional organization. Three excellent speakers led Pre-Conference sessions. What We've Learned in 25 Years of Interviewing.

District Judge for the Southern District of New York, said that historians of the Great Recession will say that fraud played a major role in creating a mortgage bubble that led to the crash, but that few of the people most responsible for that fraud were ever brought to justice.

In the late s, the Securities and Exchange Commission expanded securities fraud prosecutions to reach high-level executives, big-firm accountants and attorneys who had perpetrated huge frauds, Rakoff said. But Rakoff said these frauds were nothing compared to those caused by mortgage-backed securities in the financial meltdown. Fraud permeated every part of the system, he said — banks, mortgage companies, rating agencies. The mortgage bubble "was rooted in fraud at every level," he said.

But the disaster was of such magnitude, that the one clear response of the government was to bailout the very banks that had created the problem for fear that otherwise the economy would collapse.
