KPBSD Grapples With Possible Cuts To Education Funding

first_imgErkeneff: “We are communicating with the Department of Education, and are hearing the cut will come from under-funding K-12 Education Foundation Formula, not reducing the Base Student Allocation (BSA) value as some media is reporting. This is significant to us because of the way the BSA corresponds to the minimum and maximum range the Borough can contribute to K-12 education. In contrast, under-funding the foundation formula and keeping the BSA intact would not reduce the range the Borough can fund to education.” University of Alaska system President Jim Johnsen said the system faces a cut of more than $130 million, which could force layoffs of up to 1,300 people and the elimination of programs. Erkeneff said there was some confusion with the information provided on how those cuts will be determined, but that the district is ready for a number of scenarios for the budget possibilities. The current plan calls for cutting roughly $310 million from the state Department of Education and Early Childhood Development from the department’s current $1.3 billion budget. According to Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Communications Liaison Pegge Erkeneff, the budget documentation made available to this point does not give the district enough detail to determine the amounts specific to the Kenai Peninsula.center_img Erkeneff: “Analyzing information that we have that’s available there’s not enough information right now for the district to specifically what the impact will be to the Kenai. That’s because there is still some confusion with details that have been released.”  Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Governor Mike Dunleavy released an amended FY20 budget on Wednesday. The budget proposes a significant reduction to education funding throughout the state. It’s unknown at this time how those cuts would impact the Kenai Peninsula campus.last_img read more

first_img Related Snap Intros $380 Two-Camera Spectacles — A Fashion Accessory for Snapchat AR Content Snap, as part of restructuring of its ad-sales group, upped Luke Kallis from head of West Coast sales to VP, U.S. enterprise business solutions.His new appointment comes under the Snapchat parent company’s reorganization of its U.S. advertising team under chief business officer Jeremi Gorman from a regional structure to one oriented on business categories. In the reshuffle, initiated last month, Snap’s ad group now comprises three teams: enterprise (i.e., large brand advertisers), emerging advertisers and direct-response clients. On Snap’s first quarter 2019 earnings call, Gorman told analysts, “While we expect some disruption to our near-term business, we are confident that this is the right long-term structure.”Kallis is now in charge of all major Snap client business in the U.S. He joined Snap in June 2015 and has focused on Hollywood studio clients. Previously, he spent over five years at Vevo as senior VP, national sales. Snapchat Parent Company Raises $1.265 Billion in Debt Financing, Citing Potential Acquisitions Popular on Variety Other senior members of Gorman’s team are Claire Valoti, VP international, who leads sales outside the U.S. Last month, Snap hired David Roter, who hails from Twitter and ESPN, as VP, global agency partnerships. Another key leader the org is VP of operations Radhika Kakkar, who joined in 2015 from Accenture.Snap’s U.S. Enterprise sales team is now organized into nine verticals: entertainment, tech, auto, retail, restaurants, travel/industrial/energy, consumer packaged goods, telco/financial services, and health care/government.Gorman, former head of ad sales at Amazon, joined Snap last November.

Full scale Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII brought to life

first_imgFans of the Final Fantasy video game series are no strangers to characters wielding really big swords, like Cloud Strife’s Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII, for example. But could you imagine what a real-life full scale version of such a legendary weapon would look like? It would look impressive undoubtedly, but would it be too heavy to wield by normal mortals? You might think so.Thanks to a knife and sword builder extraordinaire by the name of Michael Craughwell, we have a very impressive real life replica of a FFVII Buster Sword measuring over 8-feet tall and weighing in at a hefty 54 pounds. But what is even more impressive is that we get to see this beast of a sword in action, taking it’s fury out on an unsuspecting wood pallet.Read more at YouTube, via Geekologie.last_img read more

Optimists make poor business decisions

first_imgLondon: Optimistic thinking is leading people to set up businesses that have no realistic prospect of financial success, according to a study which has found that pessimists are less likely to proceed with unpromising entrepreneurial ventures.The research from the University of Bath, the London School of Economics and Political Science, and Cardiff University in the UK, explores the financial consequences of becoming an entrepreneur for optimists – people with a tendency to overestimate their chances of doing well and underestimate their probability of failure. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfTracking individuals as they move from paid employment to setting up their own business venture, the study found that business owners with above average optimism earned some 30 per cent less than those with below average optimism. Many of the optimists would have been well advised to remain an employee, according to the study published in European Economic Review. Despite entrepreneurs earning on average less, working longer hours and bearing more risk than their counterparts in paid employment, optimists are more likely than most to mistakenly think they have found a good business opportunity and that they have what it takes to exploit it successfully. Realists and pessimists are less likely to proceed with unpromising entrepreneurial ventures.Studies consistently report that about 80 per cent of the population have an overly optimistic outlook. This can increase ambition and persistence, encourage others to cooperate, and generally enhance performance.Ominously though, basing choices on faulty assessments also leads to participation in activities doomed to fail.last_img read more

Dont Have a 3D Printer Yet This Startup Wants to Change That

first_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals 4 min read Register Now » January 7, 2015center_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. LAS VEGAS — Food. Makeup. Cars. Even an entire house. People are making some wild things using 3-D printing. But, so far, the technology hasn’t really hit the mainstream.One startup that’s trying to change that is Marina Del Rey, Calif.-based AIO Robotics. The company was founded in May 2013 by Kai Chang and Jens Windau, who were later joined by Christian Siagian, who serves as vice president of software. Their goal was to develop a 3-D printer that could be accessible to everyone: small businesses, schools and households.The result is ZEUS, an all-in-one 3-D printer/copier/scanner/fax machine. Yes, it does all of those things in one desktop device. Retailing for $2,500, the company was expecting to have around 350 units sold and several more orders in-hand by the end of 2014. AIO is hoping their showing at Eureka Park — the startup zone here at CES — ratchets up their momentum by several notches.Related: From Eye Shadow to Entire Houses: 7 of the Craziest 3-D Printed Creations YetWe caught up with AIO Robotics co-founder and CEO Windau to discuss the crazy world of 3-D printing. Check it out.Entrepreneur: Where did the idea to combine a printer/copier/scanner/fax machine with 3-D printing come from?Windau: We looked at the development of traditional 2-D printers and the transition into a multifunctional machine with an integrated 2-D scanner. That’s why we believe this will be a natural transition for 3-D printers as well. Indeed it enables and simplifies lots of tasks like 3-D copying and 3-D faxing and in addition cost-efficiently utilizes one turntable for two technologies: printing and scanning.Entrepreneur: So how exactly does this thing work?Windau: A laser swipes above an object on a rotating plate for 360 degrees. A camera captures how this laser line changes its shape. This information allows us to calculate a 3-D model of the object.Entrepreneur: What’s the craziest thing you’ve created using a 3-D printer?Windau: We recently started printing parts with movable joints, such as a cube game, a toy with rotating wheels or an elephant with moving feet.This was a moment when we realized the power of 3-D printing that allows us to print toys, tools and objects with functional parts in one print process. In traditional manufacturing, these objects would have had to go through a longer — often complicated — assembly process.Related: This Sector Will Drive the 3-D Printing BoomEntrepreneur: How do you see the 3-D printing industry evolving in the next year or so?Windau: We believe that the 3-D printing industry will go through two stages. First, 3-D printing services will be increasingly offered in retail stores. Eventually, once pricing goes further down and performance goes up, we will see an increasing sales demand in the household market.Entrepreneur: If I had a ZEUS, what would I use it for every day?Windau: ZEUS is primarily used for prototyping work in design, engineering, architecture. However, the combination of scanning and printing technology is also particularly interesting for new markets such as medicine (creation of prosthetics, for example) and dentistry (creation of surgical guides). Patients will be able to be treated in a significantly shorter time.Entrepreneur: What’s been the most exhilarating part about being a startup founder so far?Windau: It’s particularly exciting to grow as a startup into a business field that gets increasing attention through new application in any kind of field — engineering, design, architecture, medicine, dentistry, house construction, astronautics, bakery business. And we are part of this fast development!Related: Small Businesses and Entrepreneurs Will Lead the Way for 3-D Printing Adoptionlast_img read more

A sigh of relief for Costa Rica as Cristian Gamboas knee injury

first_imgGracias por sus buenos deseos y oraciones, sigo positivo y enfocado ! pic.twitter.com/DlaHiNJZMG— Cristian Gamboa (@Cris_GamboaCR) April 22, 2014 An injuryto the right knee of Cristian Gamboa won’t require surgery, keeping alive the hope that Costa Rica’s right back will return in time for the World Cup.On Tuesday afternoon, the 24-year-old reported his test results on Twitter. An ultrasound confirmed he suffered a sprain in his knee and not a tearing of the meniscus  — an injury that would’ve ended his World Cup dreams.Gamboa, who plays for Norway’s most successful club Rosenborg, will continue his recovery in Costa Rica. He hopes to start practicing with the Costa Rica national team during a training session that begins in mid-May.Both of Costa Rica’s top defenders are on the mend and remain close calls for the World Cup that begins on June 12. Star left-back Bryan Oviedo looks on pace to make the team as he recuperates from a gruesome leg injury that occurred in January.

We need to create jobs and change the living conditions for the population,” Lamothe said as he urged restraint.Amid pressure from the international community, the Haitian government has committed to holding long overdue legislative and municipal elections in late October.

Airlines lose 17 billion from volcanic ash

Europe’s carriers were already expected to lose $2.2 billion this year—the largest in the industry,”IATA is now urging airports and governments to help mitigate the financial impact on airlines.“London Heathrow and Dubai are waiving parking fees and not charging for repositioning flights. Others airports must follow” said Bisignani.He also requested that airports relax their rules on take-off and landing slot allocation and governments to relax bans on night flights to get passengers home as soon as possible.The EU was also urged to ease its passenger care regulations, IATA saying it was “unfair” that airlines were held responsible to pay for hotels, meals and telephones for stranded passengers when the volcanic crisis was “completely beyond the control of airlines.”Governments were also asked to help carriers recover the cost of the disruption.“I am the first one to say that this industry does not want or need bailouts. But this crisis is not the result of running our business badly. “It is an extra-ordinary situation exaggerated with a poor decision-making process by national governments. The airlines could not do business normally.”last_img read more

EU says growth opportunity to address excessive imbalances

first_imgThe European Commission said Cyprus’s economic growth offers an opportunity for the island to address “excessive imbalances” by re-embarking on the reform process which was put on hold two years ago.The imbalances include “high levels of public, private and external debt, a large negative net international investment position and a high stock of non-performing loans,” which are a “key vulnerability” of banks suppressing credit supply, the commission said in on Wednesday in the 2018 European Semester country report.Cyprus is one of the three EU economies facing excessive imbalances. The other two are Italy and Croatia.“Unemployment is also declining but remains high, in a context of weak potential growth. Amid positive macroeconomic developments, a renewed reform momentum in key areas could help improve potential growth, reduce vulnerabilities and the risk of a slowdown, should the external environment and financial conditions become less supportive,” the report said.In 2018, economic growth is forecast to remain strong but decelerate to 3.2 per cent the 72-page report said, adding that last year’s progress in implementing recommendations was limited, with the exception of the adoption of legislation to introduce the national healthcare system in June.Other growth enhancing reforms could focus on the areas of the insolvency and foreclosure frameworks, the judicial system, the business environment, the public sector, education and the labour market and privatisations to improve the business environment.The Cypriot economy expanded last year a projected 3.9 per cent after growing in 2016 3 per cent helping reduce the unemployment level 9.8 per cent in January.The better-than-expected performance of the economy and public finances allowed the generation of a €361m fiscal surplus on a cash basis last year and the reduction of public debt below 100 per cent of economic output. In November, non-performing loans stood at €21.1bn or 43.7 per cent of the total while private sector debt stood at 250 per cent of the economy at the end of September.The onloading of real estate by banks as part of loan restructurings including debt-to-asset swaps resulted in an increased exposure to the property market, while banks continue to face uncertainties concerning the sustainability of their “(debt) reduction strategies, as loan re-defaults and re-restructuring remain high”, the commission said.Debt recovery in Cyprus is slow as contract enforcement remains weak and application of foreclosure and insolvency legislation limited. This is also resulting in limited progress in reducing delinquent loans, the commission said. Furthermore, while public debt is falling, it still remains high rendering the economy vulnerable to external shocks.“Significant reliance on corporate income tax revenues and the presence of tax planning businesses exposes the country to changes in international tax systems,” the commission added.“Key public-sector reforms are pending, notably those concerning public administration, local government and state-owned entities,” the report said. “Some measures have been taken or announced to improve the efficiency of the judicial system, but a more comprehensive reform is still at an early stage.”While “administrative measures have been taken to reduce the backlog in issuing title deeds” this was not a structured solution in addressing inadequacies in the property transaction system, the report continued.“Concrete steps were taken to increase the capacity of the public employment services, while only limited progress was made on education,” the commission said.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

first_imgBy Evie AndreouTHE drilling in Bloc 9 of the Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone (EEZ) will proceed as planned Foreign minister Ioannis Kassoulides said in Athens yesterday after the first joint meeting with his Greek counterpart Eleftherios Venizelos and the Energy ministers of both countries.Kasoulides said that this meeting is proof of the two countries’ willingness to further cooperate in these areas.“All the countries of the Mediterranean can cooperate, taking advantage of their sea wealth, for the interest and the prosperity of our people,” he added.The Cypriot minister also said that Ankara should recognise that the interests of the Turkish Cypriots, in relation to Cyprus’ natural resources, have already been safeguarded, within the framework of the negotiations, where there is convergence regarding the fact that these natural resources will constitute a federal responsibility and will be distributed in a fair manner for the benefit of all Cypriots.Venizelos criticised Turkey’s stance and said that the Barbaros survey ship’s presence in the Cyprus EEZ is illegal and that the Greek government is always in cooperation with the Cypriot government in order to deal with Turkish challenges.During the meeting, the two sides exchanged information, and discussed strategies on foreign and security policies with regards to the energy and the exploitation of natural resources and the prospect of development, employment and prosperity in the two countries, as well as in the eastern Mediterranean region.The two Greek ministers were briefed by their Cypriot counterparts on the ongoing exploration within Cyprus’ EEZ and the Cypriot side was informed on the course of the tenders for offshore fields in the Ionian Sea and the north of Crete.Both sides also exchanged information regarding the delimitation agreements of the maritime zones of the countries in the region, as well as on the negotiation course between Greece and Turkey, Egypt and Libya.Greek Energy minister Yiannis Maniatis said that the economic viability and the technical feasibility of the area was thoroughly documented and added that it is the first time, after many decades, that an energy-thirsty Europe has the potential to be a new supply source from the Eastern Mediterranean, with a new route, via the East-Med pipeline, and a new supplier, which will be the Cypriot and Greek resources, and possibly those of Israel or other regions.Cyprus Energy minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis referred to the joint initiative undertaken with the European Commission, for the latter to help the two countries look in depth into this ambitious project.“We are currently looking at all options for viable exploitation of the country’s natural wealth”, Lakkotrypis said.Meanwhile, Nicosia favoured the criticism of US senator Robert Menendez, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on the ongoing occupation of the island by Turkey, the violations of Cyprus’ EEZ and Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s recent anti-American statements.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
