Should breaks be in synch?

first_imgPALMDALE – Palmdale School District officials are looking to find out what parents think about making vacations and holidays align with those at Antelope Valley Union High School District schools. Over the past several years, Palmdale officials have gotten letters, phone calls, and e-mails from parents requesting that change, but officials say there is no way of telling how widespread that sentiment is. Palmdale’s school board last week ordered administrators to come up with suggestions on how to get parent feedback, such as sending home letters with pupils. “What we want to do is get more community input on this. We don’t know if they represent the entire district or if it’s a small group that is active and vocal in their opinions and thoughts. That has to be ascertained,” board President Sheldon Epstein said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe Christmas Truce of 1914 proved that peace is possiblePalmdale three years ago switched from a three-track, year-round school calendar to a traditional one where school starts after Labor Day and ends in June. The high school district, however, has gone the opposite direction, moving the start date of classes from after Labor Day to mid-August and ending the year in late May. The changes have left some families with difficulty in planning holiday getaways and vacations. Interim superintendent Roger Gallizzi said Palmdale has tried to align winter and spring breaks as much as possible with those of the high school district. “We do get occasional comments and phone calls about not being aligned with the high school district,” interim Superintendent Roger Gallizzi said. “We have no way to gauge if this is how everybody feels. We feel there is a need to find out how the community is thinking.” A change would raise issues having to do with employee work schedules. Currently, some Palmdale staff work 10 months out of the year and would have to be changed to 11- or 12-month employees, Gallizzi said. In addition, hourly employees would not get paid during a three-week winter break. “Hourly employees only get paid when they work. If you have three weeks off at Christmas time, you are not going to get a paycheck,” Gallizzi said. High school district officials said they wanted to start school earlier so the first semester ends before the winter break. Resuming classes after the holidays often meant review and repeating lessons already covered. The change also provides more time for teachers to grade tests and for students to prepare for standardized testing in the spring, officials said. The schedule shift was done in consultation with teachers and after surveys were done, district officials said. The change, however, bumped up against the Antelope Valley Fair, during which hundreds of teens exhibit farm animals in the last week of August. Students were allowed to skip classes with the expectation they would make up the work when the fair ended.

Scott Brown initiated Scotland return, says Mark McGhee

first_imgScott Brown’s U-turn over his international retirement was “100% initiated” by the player, according to Scotland assistant boss Mark McGhee.The Celtic captain is poised to return to the squad for next month’s crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier against England at Wembley just months after declaring he was unavailable for selection.Brown has missed the national team’s opening three matches and previously claimed he had no regrets over his call as he sought to prolong his club career with the Scottish champions.After a return to form under new Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers, the 31-year-old has now reversed his decision and will be named in Gordon Strachan’s party for the trip to London. Motherwell boss McGhee expressed his joy at the midfielder’s change of heart, saying: “Scott and Gordon will come to some conclusion over that but I think he is arguably the best player in Scotland right now. Certainly he’s the best Scottish player.“If we have the best players available it will only help us.“Scott’s a great player. Arguably in the last campaign he was our most significant player.“I was disappointed when he announced his retirement. He has that character that drives other people, that glues people on the pitch together. He’s a leader. “My understanding is that it was 100 per cent initiated by Scott. It was him revising his decision really and him thinking he has more to give.“All Gordon has told me is that this is a possibility. I’ve not had a discussion about what he thinks about it though.“I would imagine that when England look at our team, they would prefer Scott Brown to not be playing.“Could this be the boost the team needs? I think it is. It certainly is for me. When Gordon told me, I felt it was a big positive. I was delighted.“We have a better chance of getting a result with ‘Broony’ than without him.”last_img read more

Philadelphia Wants $300 Business License From Bloggers Who Make No Money

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts adrianne jeffriescenter_img The city of Philadelphia is demanding money from bloggers who were honest enough to report the meagerest – $11, $50 – of revenue from ads or donations.According to the law, any blogger who enables advertising is required to register as a business, pay for a license and pay taxes on their profits no matter how small, the Philadelphia City Paper reported last week.Philadelphia requires a license for the privilege of doing business when there is “activity for profit,” a tax attorney told the paper, even if the activity did not earn a profit the year before or may never turn a profit.The license is $300 for a lifetime or $50 a year.But the city only knows about the ads you’re placing on your freely-hosted blog if you report that income on your taxes.At least two small-time bloggers are being asked to pay the price for their honesty. Marilyn Bess earned $50 between a few articles on and her WordPress-hosted blog about green living. She got a letter from the city demanding she pay $300 for a license plus taxes on her profits.Another blogger, Sean Barry, writes about music on his blog Circle of Fits, hosted on Blogspot. He earned $11 in profit over two years and also received a letter.As Barry wrote on his blog Friday:Bloggers are just a subset of workers affected by this regressive tax. According to the city’s strict rules, any freelancer based in the city qualifies as a business and needs to get the license.I never expected Circle of Fits to “make money” or be deemed a “business”… I put ads on it as an experiment, and I don’t ever expect anyone to click on them..I don’t even know how to put the time in to learn how to control which ones are being presented.We’ve heard of cities requiring licenses when things like food or building construction are involved.

Italy’s Geophysicists Finally Have a New Boss

first_imgROME—Several months of uncertainty regarding the leadership of Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) have come to an end with the appointment of University of Catania geophysicist Stefano Gresta as the institute’s new president. Gresta, chosen from a shortlist of five by research minister Francesco Profumo on Tuesday, replaces Domenico Giardini, who was appointed in August last year but decided to stand down after failing to secure a sufficiently high salary. Europe’s largest national geophysical research organization, INGV provides 24-hour seismic surveillance and real-time volcanic monitoring via data centers in Rome, Naples, and Catania, working with the country’s Civil Protection Department to provide forecasting of natural disasters. The organization has recently been in the spotlight as a result of an ongoing trial in L’Aquila, in which seven scientists and engineers who served on Italy’s “Great Risks Commission”—including longtime INGV President Enzo Boschi—face charges of manslaughter for allegedly downplaying the chances of a major earthquake before the lethal tremor that struck the city in April 2009. Giardini, a seismologist at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, had announced his resignation in December, but it later looked as though he might stay on. In an INGV newsletter published in early March, Giardini explained that his resignation was due to his wanting to retain his post in Zurich. Professors at Italian universities who are appointed to lead research institutes usually continue to receive their academic salary in addition to their new wage, he wrote; but his ETH salary was reduced by 80% when he took the helm at INGV.

As ScienceInsider reported, Profumo tried to set up a special chair for Giardini at the Sapienza University in Rome before his resignation was due to come into effect at the end of February. But that plan was held up when La Sapienza faculty members insisted that he move full-time to Rome, Giardini says. In the end, time ran out. Incoming president Gresta, 55, says that like everyone else at the institute, he was surprised by the resignation, because Giardini was very enthusiastic about his new job. The resignation and ensuing attempts to keep Giardini in his post have been a “very confusing business,” he says. Gresta says that the uncertainty generated by Giardini’s resignation has affected INGV employees’ morale; he points out that some workers have staged a sit-in at the Rome headquarters in protest over job security. Indeed, one of Gresta’s immediate priorities is to ensure the continued employment of several hundred workers whose temporary contracts are to expire at the end of this year. “The main problem,” he explains, “is not to find the funds as such, but to find the legal instruments to allow people to work. This is a bureaucratic issue and I am confident we will find a solution.” Regarding the trial in L’Aquila, Gresta argues that “everyone is good at saying what should have been done after the event.” He says the scientific advice given by the commission members was “the best that the scientific community in Italy could have given in that moment” and believes that to say in hindsight that the commission should have acted differently is to make “a nonscientific observation.” Gresta himself served on the commission from 1994 to 1995 as a specialist in seismic risk. He was appointed again in December last year, when the commission was overhauled, this time to work in the section dealing with volcanic risk. The president of the newly reconstituted Great Risks Commission is Luciano Maiani, a particle physicist who has previously served as director general of the CERN laboratory and president of Italy’s National Research Council. Although Maiani has no expertise in geophysics, Gresta says he has no doubt that he’ll do an excellent job. “Because the commission is organized into subcommissions, each of which has specialized experts, the president’s role is coordination,” Gresta says. “The fact that Maiani is a particle physicist may in fact be an advantage because his approach to problem solving allows him to find simple solutions.”last_img read more

Justin Gatlin wins 200m at US trials; sets stage for showdown with Usain Bolt

first_imgAmerican sprinter Justin Gatlin set the stage for a world championship showdown with Usain Bolt when he won the 200 metres in a blazing 19.57 seconds at the U.S. trials in Oregon on Sunday.Only four people, including world record holder Bolt, have ever run faster than the 33-year-old, whose previous best was 19.68 seconds.”I wanted to come out and make a statement, and that’s what I did,” said the fast starting Gatlin.”I would say it’s the most complete, technically 200m I ever ran,” he added.”A lot of people were asking me what could I run if I ran through the finish line, so obviously I went out there and ran 19.5 so I hope I can do better than that.”Gatlin was so exhausted he bent over after the race.”It hurt,” he said. “My body has never been there before.But it felt great.”Only Jamaicans Bolt and Yohan Blake and Americans Michael Johnson and Walter Dix have gone faster.Training partner Isiah Young was second in 19.93 with the 30-year-old Wallace Spearmon taking third in 20.10.The wind was an allowable 0.4 metres per second.Gatlin, the year’s fastest at 100 and 200, had a bye in the 100 at the trials, but plans to challenge Bolt at both distances in the August world championships in Beijing.They have not met since 2013 with Gatlin, who has served two doping bans, piling up a two-year unbeaten streak.last_img read more
