Education Minister touts new ICT platform for Public Schools Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 28 Oct 2014 – Could it be… no construction company in the Turks and Caicos wants to build phase one of the new school for our teenagers. Education Minister, Deputy Premier, Akierra Missick said it is a shame that the tender closed last week with no interest expressed; the date is now extended. The big issue is that this could cause a further delay for the school’s construction; which would mean no new school in time for September. Media learned that an extra $1.6 million has been budgeted for the construction of the institution to be located in Long Bay Hills. This is the seventh time, explained the Minister, that an MOE project has not attracted bids.

The rising Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold has revealed his hopes of remaining at Anfield for the rest of his career, expressing his gratitude to the fansAlready established himself as an essential first-team member, the Liverpool youth product has played a notable role in Merseysiders’ last season Champions League run to the big final.Alexander-Arnold has so far registered a total of 54 outings for the Reds ever since he broke into the first-team back in 2016. In his third Premier League season, the 20-year-old right-back already collected seven appearances, having provided an assist in the process.When asked about his situation at Anfield, the versatile England international said:“There is nowhere else I’d rather be than Liverpool,” he told The Times.“Somewhere I want to stay for the rest of my career is Liverpool. It’s what I’ve always dreamed of. Liverpool are special.Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“It’s completely down to the fans. Whether we are winning or losing we always have their love.“I remember Istanbul [the 2005 Champions League final]. Only Liverpool could fight back from 3-0 down.“The players said they could hear You’ll Never Walk Alone at half-time.“Not many teams’ fans would still be there, singing their hearts out at 3-0 down, after making a long trip to Turkey.“A lot of teams’ fans might have left early, tried to get an early flight home, but not Liverpool fans, we stay to the end.”

Posted: June 21, 2019 Audit says CSU stashed away $1.5 billion and raised tuition Categories: California News, Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter AP AP, June 21, 2019 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The California State University system kept $1.5 billion in discretionary reserves while it raised tuition and lobbied the Legislature for more state funding, according to a report released Thursday by the state auditor.Auditor Elaine Howle’s report says that CSU accumulated the surplus from 2008 to 2018, primarily from student tuition. During that same time period, it nearly doubled student tuition at its 23 campuses but did not fully inform legislators and students about its surplus.Tuition at CSU campuses rose from $3,048 in 2008-2009 to $5,742 in 2017-18.The audit says the chancellor’s office used the money to cover the cost of instruction and other operating costs. It said CSU kept the money outside of the state treasury and did not disclose the surplus in key documents it provided to legislators and students.“By failing to disclose this surplus when consulting with students about tuition increases or when projecting CSU’s resources and needs to the Legislature, the Chancellor’s Office has prevented legislators and students from evaluating CSU’s financial needs,” the report said.The audit’s findings are the latest to tarnish the image of California’s public university systems. In a 2017 audit of the University of California, Howle found misleading budget practices and that administrators had kept tens of millions of dollars in reserves not properly disclosed to the public.CSU Chancellor Timothy White said in a statement Thursday the report was misleading and mischaracterized the purpose of reserve funds, which help to deal with state recessions and cover the cost of maintenance or other expenses previously paid for by the state.“It is irresponsible to imply that these one-time funds could have been used in lieu of ongoing revenue sources, such as state funding, or student tuition, for ongoing costs,” White said. He also said it was incorrect to claim that CSU did not fully disclose the funds. He said the audit’s conclusion “overlooks dozens of presentations of publicly available reports that included information about these funds.”The report also criticized CSU for building expensive parking facilities at four of its campuses, which did little to alleviate parking problems but resulted in higher fees for students. It said CSU raised the cost of parking permits as much as $236 per semester to pay for the new structures at its campuses in Sacramento, San Diego, Fullerton and the Channel Islands.The report recommended that the chancellor’s office be required to publish details of its discretionary surplus and take other steps to improve financial transparency, to ensure that details are easily available to trustees, legislators, students and the public.
RELATED VIDEO: Q+A with GoodenoughSummit Business Media has promoted president Andy Goodenough to CEO. Goodenough replaces publishing veteran William R. Reilly, who will continue to serve as chairman and remains an investor in the company. “Going into the formation of Summit in November 2006, my plan was to drive the initial growth of the business for several years as CEO, and then step back to the chairman role,” Reilly said in a statement. Prior to joining Summit, Reilly served as chairman and CEO of F&W Publications (now F+W Media); as founder, chairman and CEO of Primedia; and as president of the Macmillan Publishing Company. Goodenough has more than 30 years of experience in b-to-b media. He served as president of the USB Corporation and as publisher of U.S. Banker before its sale to Thomson Media in 1993. He then served as president of Thomson’s banking publishing/conferences group and launched Highline Media in 2003, which was acquired as part of the formation of Summit in 2006.Earlier this month, Summitpurchased WiesnerMedia’s Denver-based Financial Group, marking the company’s seventh acquisition since its launch. Summit’s current portfolio includes 25 magazines, 150 reference books and electronic products, and 100 live events.
While event and exhibition organizers have historically collected data on attendees, LeadsConnect is unique for its streamlined design, which compiles all of the relevant data together for organizers, vendors, and attendees alike. Using a network of RFID chips and beacons placed throughout the event, AI and FISH can gather data that includes session visits, content downloads from the event app, exhibitors visited, and which activities each attendee participated in. Attendees will also have access to a personalized page, which shows them all of their session content, exhibitor downloads, surveys, and prize notifications, allowing for easy and intuitive access to the content they engaged with during the event. The product will launch at LeadsCon, a performance marketing conference taking place March 20 to 22 in Las Vegas. Access Intelligence, Folio:’s parent company, and FISH Technologies will debut a new events platform at the 2017 LeadsCon. The platform, LeadsConnect, will allow event organizers to collect behavioral data on event attendees in order to make informed leads before and after the show. “Until now, we’ve had to cobble together several different systems — event apps, registration, lead collection, surveys and meetings scheduling — to deliver our event experience. The end result was often cumbersome to our attendees because they had to log in to multiple platforms,” Smith said in the release. “We’re very excited to be able to introduce the same platform being used to enhance the fan-sponsor experience at some of the world’s largest marquee sporting events to the B-to-B industry and especially our LeadsCon community,” Kerry Smith, SVP of Access Intelligence’s Marketing Division, said in a press release.

As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

New Galaxy owners could also get six months of free Spotify Premium. Spotify noted that you’re ineligible if you’ve already used Spotify Premium or its Unlimited service or previously had a free trial. The offer is another piece of Spotify’s partnership with Samsung. The two companies started working together in August, and Spotify was deemed Samsung’s go-to music provider. The Spotify app will also come preinstalled on the Galaxy Fold, set to debut April 26, and the Galaxy S10 5G, set for release in the summer. See It CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Enlarge ImageThe Prius Prime arrived in the 2017 model year to replace the Prius Plug-In, and it’s remained relatively unchanged since then. Toyota Toyota may have given the regular Prius a redesign for the 2019 model year, but the Prius Prime plug-in hybrid soldiered on unchanged. The automaker will change that, though, with a slew of solid updates for the 2020 model year.Toyota this week unveiled a raft of changes for the 2020 Toyota Prius. However, the aesthetics remain unchanged, leaving the Prius Prime to look like a sharper yet also wackier version of the regular Prius. The two do look a bit more similar, though, thanks to the 2019 Prius’ visual updates. The adjustments focus on interior comfort and tech. Perhaps most importantly, Toyota has added Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM satellite radio and Amazon Alexa compatibility as standard equipment across the lineup. To ensure everybody’s devices are topped off for post-drive adventures, the 2020 Prius Prime now sports two extra USB ports in the second row.Speaking of the second row, it now accommodates three individuals, up from two in previous model years. That’s the major interior update, as the rest are pretty inconsequential. There’s a new extender for the sun visors, the white interior accents have been swapped out for black ones and the front-heated seat buttons have been relocated for easier access. Finally, Toyota also revamped the hierarchy of the lineup. Instead of Plus, Premium and Advanced trims, they’re now called LE, XLE and Limited, mirroring other Toyota vehicles. When the 2020 Toyota Prius Prime goes on sale this summer, it’ll start at $27,600 before destination, rising to $29,500 for the midlevel XLE and $33,500 for the top-tier Limited. Its battery still permits an all-electric range of 25 miles, but taking the gas tank into account, it can run up to 640 miles before it needs more go-go juice. 42 Photos More From Roadshow More about 2019 Toyota Prius • Preview • 2019 Toyota Prius AWD-e: Efficient stability 0 Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross.
