first_img New-Indiana-Ag-School-opening-this-yearA new Indiana public charter school is gearing up for the start of classes on July 30, 2018. The Indiana Agriculture & Technology School is a fully accredited school for online students in grades 7-12 offering all academic diplomas through the Indiana Department of Education. But Keith Marsh, Chief Academic Officer says the school has another specific and unique focus.“We have a full focus on the agriculture and technology business, so we’re looking at exposing young people to the agricultural world, and what’s offered out there as far as careers are concerned,” he told HAT. “They’ll become knowledgeable about what agriculture can bring to our community and to our state, and to the nation and world overall. So, we’re really focusing on the agricultural side and how technology can fit into that as well.”The school is online and also on the farm, specifically a 600-acre operation in Morgantown, Indiana with forest, and pasture and crop land, 200 acres of each. Marsh says those resources and facilities will be used for project-based learning.“So, they’ll be exposed to agribusiness, to farming, to environmental sciences, forest management. All those pieces will take place on the farm, so when we bring our kids down monthly they will be involved with project-based learning. You put that into the virtual online where they’re working out of their home or whatever learning center they’re at doing their academic core work.”And the cost?“The cool thing about this program is they’ll get all of this for free. We are a public charter school, so it’s tuition free. They just enroll and become part of the school and we take care of the rest, so there’s no cost to the parents,” Marsh said.Information sessions are being held at the Zionsville Public Library Wednesday (4/18) and at Ivy Tech in Noblesville Thursday (4/19.) Prospective students and their families are invited to the open house this Saturday from noon until 4 PM at the farm campus in Morgantown which is in Morgan County. The address is 1982 South Morgantown Road in Morgantown, Indiana.“Agriculture is a key to Indiana’s economic foundation,” says Allan Sutherlin, one of the school’s founders. “But many farmers are aging out and the next generation needs more than just an apprenticeship. We’re at the dawn of a revolution in agricultural technology and innovation with data-driven solutions to precision farming. We must address that workforce challenge.”Enrollment is now open to Indiana residents, grades 7-12. Online coursework is offered for Core 40, Core 40 Honors, and Core 40 Technical Honors diploma programs. AP opportunities are also provided. Enrollment is capped at 160 students per grade level.“Our enrollment is intentionally small,” added Marsh. “We want to provide a more individualized touch than traditional online schools. We’re also committed to holding our students accountable for their education. At least four teachers will be assigned to each enrolled student for each course taken. We expect our kids to graduate.”The school is also working to establish a network of corporate and farming partners throughout the state to provide student internships and jobs.IATS is authorized by Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson United School Corporation in Trafalgar.The Indiana Agriculture & Technology School website is the full HAT interview with Marsh from the Indiana Agriculture & Technology:Newsmakers-with-Keith-Marsh-at-IATS Facebook Twitter Indiana Ag Charter School Set for July 30 Open SHARE Previous articleNo Relief from Tariff Retaliation in Farm BillNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for April 18, 2018 Andy Eubank Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Ag Charter School Set for July 30 Open By Andy Eubank – Apr 18, 2018 Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

Priorities set after M20 contract award

June 4, 2021 | fofabvlic | No Comments

first_imgMayor James Collins, Conn Murray, Limerick City and County Council CEO, and An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar. Photo: Cian ReinhardtTHE NEWLY awarded M20 contract must be prioritised as “one of the most crucial infrastructure projects yet to be delivered in the State,” according to the Limerick and Cork chambers of Commerce.Limerick Chamber chief executive Dee Ryan, said it was important that the momentum is maintained as every day that goes by without this holds back the south and west from reaching its economic potential.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The delivery of the M20 needs to be expedited as no other infrastructure project in the country can contribute so positively for so many”, she said.The awarding of the contract was confirmed last week during the visit of Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar.Limerick City and County Council, as lead authority for the project which will be undertaken in conjunction with the Cork and Tipperary local authorities, has appointed Barry Transportation, and its project partners WSP and Sweco, as Technical Advisors to progress the scheme up to the stage where it will be submitted for planning.Despite being only 100 km apart, the economic interaction and inter-relationships between Limerick and Cork is limited with poor transport connectivity being a factor.Planning and design will start this month and extensive public consultation is promised at every stage.Limerick Mayor James Collins said the project was critical for the economic development of Limerick and the wider region along the Atlantic Corridor.“It will save lives and improve the quality of life for those who rely on this transport corridor for business, work, study and tourism,” he added.Limerick City and County Council chief executive Conn Murray said the M20 project was identified in Project Ireland 2040 National Development Plan as a major enabler for balanced regional development.  It would achieve this by substantially delivering the Atlantic Corridor, with a high-quality road network linking Limerick, Cork and Galway.”A Project Office has been established at County Council headquarters  in Dooradoyle.

first_img By Odessa American – May 20, 2021 Twitter Mask wearing will remain in effect through the end of the school year at ECISD schools.In his media call Wednesday, Superintendent Scott Muri said Gov. Greg Abbott’s order regarding masks as it relates to school districts takes effect June 4, which is after ECISD is out for the year.After that, “we will transition to that environment,” Muri said.“We still have cases almost every day in ECISD,” he added. “We continue to have students and staff members that are testing positive for COVID-19, so maintaining the safety of all of our students is critically important.”“In addition to that, we would like to announce that we are partnering with our local community and healthcare providers to provide vaccinations for our 12-year-old students and up. More information is forthcoming about those dates, times and locations, but we’re excited to be able to provide that opportunity …,” Muri said.Muri added that plans are not to continue using GermBlast next year. The firm disinfected the district every three months during the year.“We are still studying that to see what safety procedures we’ll need to put in place next year for our students,” he said.On other items, Muri said the ECISD Board of Trustees approved a “pretty dynamic compensation plan” for the district’s 4,200 employees.Some of the components of the plan include a 3% across-the-board raise for all salaried contracted employees; (and) a 4% raise for hourly employees.“We have raised the starting salary for a first-year teacher in ECISD to $57,000 and we’ve raised the minimum wage in ECISD to $12 an hour. In addition to that, the board approved a one-time payment to all employees that are working on the first day of school in 2021. We’ll provide $750 to every employee that is working with us on the first day of school of next year,” Muri said.Muri said this will demonstrate the district’s appreciation for the people that worked hard all this year during the pandemic and welcome new employees.“We have deep gratitude to the board of trustees for investing in the employees of ECISD, and again, are very grateful for the unanimous decision that our board of trustees made (Tuesday) night. It is quite an investment in the 4,200 employees of ECISD,” Muri said.The board also approved the early payoff of a lease agreement for school buses.“Several years ago, the board of trustees leased 30 school buses and we’ve created a lease-purchase agreement opportunity. That lease was structured to end several years from now. However, due to our current financial situation, we were able to pay off that $3 million lease a little bit early. This will save our taxpayers a little over $160,000 in payments and also will free up some maintenance operations funding for our school board to use over the next several years. … It’s really the good stewardship of our trustees that has allowed us to make that type of decision …,” Muri said.He mentioned that the ECISD Live episode Thursday night featured the producers of The Daily, a podcast from the New York Times. The episodes focused on Odessa High School, and along with the podcast producers, the ECISD Live featured teachers and students who participated.This coming weekend, ECISD will graduate the classes of 2020 from each of the five high schools.Next weekend, the district will be graduating the Class of 2021.

first_imgChanges in ocean circulation have been proposed as a trigger mechanism for the large coupled climate and carbon cycle perturbations at the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM, ca. 55 Ma). An abrupt warming of oceanic intermediate waters could have initiated the thermal destabilization of sediment-hosted methane gas hydrates and potentially triggered sediment slumps and slides. In an ensemble of fully coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation model (AOGCM) simulations of the late Paleocene and early Eocene, we identify such a circulation-driven enhanced intermediate-water warming. Critically, we find an approximate twofold amplification of Atlantic intermediate-water warming when CO2 levels are doubled from 2x to 4x preindustrial CO2 compared to when they are doubled from 1x to 2x. This warming is largely focused on the equatorial and South Atlantic and is driven by a significant reduction in deep-water formation from the Southern Ocean. This scenario is consistent with altered PETM circulation patterns inferred from benthic carbon isotope data and the intensity of deep-sea carbonate dissolution in the South Atlantic. The linkage between intermediate-water warming and gas hydrate destabilization could provide an important feedback in the establishment of peak PETM warmth.last_img read more

first_imgA makeshift sand berm protects the south end during a nor’easter after Superstorm Sandy in November 2012.After years of lobbying to rebuild eroding beaches, south end property owners in Ocean City will see 50 years of continuing replenishment projects.City Council on Thursday unanimously approved a resolution that authorizes Mayor Jay Gillian to sign an agreement with state Department of Environmental Protection and the federal Army Corps of Engineers to pump new sand onto beaches between 34th and 59th streets in Ocean City.“This is the long-awaited agreement that gets the south-end into the federal program,” Business Administrator Mike Dattilo told City Council.The federal government will pay 100 percent of the estimated $85 million initial project to restore beaches at the south end of Ocean City and in Strathmere and Sea Isle City.The south end of Ocean City will then be part of a continuing  three-year renourishment cycle that will continue for 50 years (contingent on the availability of federal funds). The federal government estimates it will spend $309.4 million on the project area over the life of the agreement.The initial project is expected to begin in late November and will end a long waiting game for property owners in southern Ocean City, where the ocean met the bay during Superstorm Sandy in October 2012 and flattened protective dunes. But even before Sandy hit in 2012, beaches on that part of the island disappeared during some high tides.The cost share for the renourishment projects in the new agreement leaves more responsibility with the state and local governments, Dattilo said.The share will be 50 percent federal government and 50 percent state government (with Ocean City responsible for 25 percent of the state’s cost).The agreement the city signed for the north end beaches calls for the federal government to pay 65 percent and the state 35 percent (with Ocean City paying 25 percent of the state’s cost).The net effect for Ocean City is that it will pay 8.75 percent of north end projects and 12.5 percent of south end projects (after the federal government pays 100 percent of this year’s initial project).Ocean City has been part of a federal Army Corps agreement on the north end since the 1990s, and Dattilo said the federal government has made good on its promise to come back “just about every three years” with a few cycles that were four or five years apart.In a separate vote on Thursday, City Council agreed to provide easements to the state and federal government on beach parcels for which the city holds riparian grants. The permission allows the beach replenishment project for the south end to proceed.The federal Army Corps of Engineers has opened bids on the project (Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Co., the same contractor that completed the beachfill project at the north end of the island in 2013, is the low bidder at $58 million), and the Corps is expected to award the contract before the end of the month.At the same time, the city has obtained all the required easements (permission from beachfront property owners who have rights to land in the project area). Of about 588 beachfront properties in the area between 34th and 59th streets, only five may be subject to condemnation litigation.__________Sign up for OCNJ Daily’s free newsletter and breaking news alerts“Like” us on Facebooklast_img read more
