first_img CroatiaEurope – Central Asia News The effigy was set on fire towards the end of a carnival in the small southern town of Proložac, after a speech in which Tomic, who is from Proložac, was declared responsible for all of Croatian society’s evils.“Is it possible in a European Union country in 2015 to symbolically burn a journalist before a crowd without being called to account in court?” Reporters Without Borders programme director Lucie Morillon asked. “This unacceptable act of aggression must be investigated for what is – a death threat.”This is not the first case of its kind in Croatia. An effigy of Vinko Vukovic, another Slobodna Dalmacija journalist, was burned in the main square of the village of Omis a year ago.Tomic was previously the victim of an attack on 23 February 2014, while on the terrace of a café in Split. A man threw a bucket of excrement in his face and shouted: “Now you can write about me.”Tomic reported the attack to the police, who said they could identify the attacker from surveillance camera footage. However, the police never arrested or even questioned anyone.Croatia is ranked 58th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Anthony Portantino Introduces Bill to Start the School Day Later New Start Time Embraces Overwhelming Research for Student Success and Well-Being Published on Monday, February 13, 2017 | 2:37 pm faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Top of the News Business News Today, Senator Anthony Portantino introduced SB 328 which will require California school districts to start their middle and high school days no earlier than 8:30 am.Every year we discuss as parents, educators, and legislators, best practices and interests of the children and education? Well data is clear; starting the school day later improves the quality of education, health and welfare of our children. So let’s do it” said Sen. Portantino.”In 2014, the American Academy of Pediatrics (APA) issued a policy statement advising school districts to change the school day start time to no earlier than 8:30 am, specifically for middle schools and high schools. Studies have confirmed that insufficient sleep in teenage adolescents poses a public health risk and has an adverse effect on academic success.According to the APA, reports on school districts who have adopted this policy have found increased attendance rates, grade point averages, state assessment scores, college admission test scores, student attention, and student and family interaction. Additionally, studies also found decreases in student involved car accidents, disciplinary actions, and decrease in student sleeping during lectures.Currently, California has over 3 million public middle and high school students. The average school day start time for these students is 8:07 am according to the Center for Disease and Control. California school districts would benefit with later school day start times as funding is tied to attendance. The Los Angeles Unified School District estimated by improving the current attendance rate by just 1%, the district would gain an additional $40 million per year which could be re-invested in California student’s educational growth.

Top district officials also were on hand.“I’m very pleased with the dedication and commitment by both the OHS AVID Site Team, leadership and the students in working to reach the highest honor of being an AVID National Demonstration School for three more years,” Ector County Independent School District AVID Director Dianne Mata said in an email. “It takes an entire team to make this happen. They certainly shined in all areas their instruction, systems in place, as well their leadership and culture of the school. I am very proud of their determination and hard work to continue being a model site for AVID.”AVID, which stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination, is a college preparation program aimed at at-risk students.

I’m glad it’s over, but now we have to prepare for growth and more amazing things for our students here at OHS,” Fuentes said.Nickerson said it’s now up to the campus to keep improving. She said she would like to see the percentage of boys in the program increase.She added that they want to ensure students are prepared for the highest level of rigor when they graduate and make sure they are prepared to take the next step in life. Nickerson also challenged teachers to bring more students into tutorials and increase focus on note taking so they show what students are learning and the learning process, and she wanted expectations to be consistent from classroom to classroom.Fuentes said there are about 370 students in the AVID program at Odessa High, but she said there are probably a little more now.Odessa High School Principal Mauricio Marquez talks about the campus being recognized again as an AVID National Demonstration School.Ruth Campbell|Odessa AmericanJust The Facts More Information Overall according to 2016 Texas Education Agency information, ECISD Superintendent Tom Crowe said 61 percent of George H.W.

Small-scale farmers keep SAB brewing

first_imgSAinfo reporter and BuaNewsWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material At least 1 500 hectares of high potential land has been identified in the Okhahlamba, Indaka, Imbabazane and Umtshezi local municipalities. Maize production potential for these areas is estimated at between four and six tonnes per hectare. 25 October 2010 Agriculture support programme The department is helping local farmers through its Comprehensive Agriculture Support Programme and Mechanisation Support Programme to participate in the newly identified market. Around 250 emerging farmers from Uthukela District Municipality in the northern Drakensberg are to supply South African Breweries (SAB) with yellow maize after the brewer entered a partnership with the KwaZulu-Natal provincial government. She said the department had been consistently encouraging and supporting emerging farmers to advance their skills and to adopt an entrepreneurial mindset.center_img The department has made a pool of 18 tractors with implements available to provide a comprehensive mechanisation service to the district. The tractors will remain in the care of the department and will be used by the farmers at no cost through a booking system. “South African Breweries approached us just at the right time,” Johnson said. “This is a milestone for our emerging black farmers in the province.” “Now our farmers will supply the much needed tons of yellow maize to the SAB processing plant in Johannesburg,” KwaZulu-Natal Agriculture, Environmental Affairs and Rural Development MEC Lydia Johnson said at the launch of the partnership in Bergville recently. Although SAB is in the business of making and selling alcoholic beverages, some of its products rely heavily on agricultural crops like yellow maize. SAB will buy 5 000 tons of maize from the farmers in the first year of the project, with the quantity gradually increasing over time. “We have a responsibility to support emerging farmers, to ensure that they develop to their full potential and become fully fledged entrepreneurs,” said Johnson. “The issue of sourcing out markets once the food has been produced is a challenge we are now addressing.”last_img read more
