Brewer’s report card is in

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre And he was only able to roll out his own reform proposals after 11 months, including a plan to create a separate district of 44 of the lowest-performing schools and personalized learning environments at all of LAUSD’s 92 middle schools. But now, even some of those reform plans look to be in jeopardy amid fierce opposition from teachers union leadership that has said it will block his attempts to move forward with the proposals. Education observers give Brewer credit for his charisma and personality, but they have doubts about his ability to stand at the district’s helm – especially since he has not yet been able to assemble a senior management team. “Clearly, he’s got to go beyond the inspirational to the managerial, and that, so far, seems like it’s been a rocky transition. It’s not something he can put off much longer or he will have serious problems,” said Raphael Sonenshein, a political science professor at California State University, Fullerton. “Once the managerial issues are under control, then people will hear your reform ideas because they’ll believe they’ll get implemented. Time is not unlimited for this kind of job. You don’t have a career to turn these things around – you have a relatively short time.” At the one-year mark as superintendent of Los Angeles Unified, David Brewer III has had a rocky initiation into city and union politics as well as the massive bureaucracy at the nation’s second-largest school district. He has grappled with glitches in a $95 million electronic payroll system that created a teachers union uproar as thousands of employees’ pay was affected for more than nine months. He was hit with pay raises for teachers and administrators, and new health care benefits for some workers that forced him to cut $300 million from his budget over three years. While he announced early on that he would push to get rid of ineffective teachers and institute a merit-pay system, he has backed off that approach and now is focused on professional development. Still, Brewer is upbeat and touts successes including lobbying efforts in Sacramento and Washington, D.C., forging a partnership with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and trimming $95 million and 523 positions from the budget. He promises to roll out his high-priority schools transformation district in the year ahead, along with expanded safety agreements and innovation division partnerships, including one with the mayor. And he promises to roll out boys’ academies, boarding schools and neighborhood parent literacy centers, and to bring Boys & Girls Club centers onto more campuses. In a recent interview with the Daily News, Brewer talked about his tenure at the LAUSD and plans for the future. Here are excerpts: Question: What do you consider your biggest accomplishment this year? Answer: “Healing the wounds after (Assembly Bill) 1381 (the mayor’s unsuccessful legislation that would have given him a significant role in the district). I wanted to find out what the morale of the organization was, so what I’ve done is built partnerships with the mayor, political leaders who have not historically had good relationships with the district like Laura Chick, Sen. (Gloria) Romero, worked with businesses and communities. “But more importantly, I’ve identified who (is) our political constituency … the parents, the teachers and the students. So I have created the office of civic and parent engagement, so I have institutionalized this soon-to-be-formal relationship with the community and parents.” Q: Some people believe the teachers union has derailed your agenda. Do you agree with that? A: “No, I don’t agree with that. … As far as my working relationship with the unions, historically union and management have had relationships that are built around tension. However, I am beginning to move the unions towards one focus – and that is focus on the mission of student achievement.” Q: Do you think you would have gotten more done had you not had to deal with teacher raises and health-care benefits issues? A: “No, I don’t think that I would have gotten much more done. I will be very frank: The (payroll problems) clearly have taken away some of my focus, but as any leader understands, you are going to be confronted with something unexpected in any job.” Q: What steps have you taken to increase accountability, cut down bureaucracy and empower local district superintendents? A: “We created our office of strategic planning and systemwide accountability. … That office will help us develop the strategic plans that you will see presented to the board in November. That office also is building one of the best accountability systems that you will see in any school district. … We will be visiting schools and working with schools in developing that accountability system. “But we will also be working through our deputy for professional learning, development and leadership to train people on how to hold themselves accountable and to improve student achievement. “We are basically creating a matrix organization inside of LAUSD. That simply means that we are going to network people across the organization as opposed to in silos.” Q: You had said you would meet quarterly with the 27 mayors. Is that happening? A: “That’s still happening. In fact, we’re establishing a formal committee, LAUSD Cities Committee, wherein we will have formal relationships with the mayors and city officials.” Q: One thing you were particularly passionate about when you started – you talked about social ills, poverty, the number of foster-care kids. Where do those efforts stand? A: “We have signed three formal safety collaboratives – one with LAPD, one with the Sheriff’s Department and the other one is Gardena. “From the intervention perspective, we are putting a Boys & Girls Club on Markham Middle School in South Central. … So within the context of trying to stabilize – especially that middle school population, and eventually the high school population – we have initiatives. “And we’re also working with the YMCA. We’re going to put a YMCA on University High School’s campus. And we will be putting those kinds of resources on more campuses during my tenure.” Q: What have you done on instruction? A: “We have finished the middle school reform plan, that’s No. 1. Then the system of accountability is No. 2. No. 3 is that we have established teacher-collaborative learning teams at 80 schools. So that is really critical right there that we have put in a learning teams program. “It all goes back to what I said, that the professional development of our teachers has been a serious deficit in LAUSD, and so in order to make sure that our teachers were better prepared, we signed a contract with Achievement Solutions to facilitate learning teams for our teachers.” Q: How much time will you need to show change? A: “Two to three years.” Q: So basically at the end of your four-year contract? A: “It’s really based on what the research and data shows. It will take two to three years before you begin to see any major improvement in a school system. … LAUSD is like a battleship: When you put the rudder over, you don’t necessarily get any movement initially.” Q: How do you respond to criticism that you are working with board President Monica Garcia and Vice President Yolie Flores Aguilar – and, by extension, the mayor – and their agendas are overtaking yours? A: “I don’t agree with that. Every two weeks I meet with each board member. They come in here for a personal session with me. If you look back at my State of the Schools address, and you look at the eight resolutions that follow (proposed by Monica Garcia), link those eight resolutions to my address. You will find that my address set the tone for those eight resolutions. “We call ourselves a board of eight, and, again, that is how I lead. I lead through collaboration and partnering.” Q: Some people also are saying (your) plans lack substance … and are not thought-out. A: “The people who are criticizing don’t understand how change is implemented. There is an eight-step process to change. What they’re seeing is basically the first two or three steps to change. … The plans will be put together over the next year. … “The Partnership of Los Angeles Schools first has to go out, develop the partnerships with the two families of schools that they’re going to choose to work with, and then over the next year they put together the plans for the 2008-09 school year. … Strategic does not mean fully baked plans. That means you have an overarching strategy. “Over the next year, we will develop at the tactical level the plans for each school. … That will take at least between now and September. Those plans will be very, very specific, so to my critics, I think they’ll have to agree with that once they see them.” Q: Do you think not having a solid team in place … has detracted from what you are trying to do? A: “I will clearly admit that it was frustrating that I could not find the right person at that time, but I’ve also learned over time that I could fill those gaps with very talented people and still get the job done.” Q: Are you surprised by all this criticism? A: “No. Criticism comes with the job. … Coming into this job as superintendent, I fully anticipated that I would be criticized. But I’m strong enough to know that I have to stay on course, and I have to follow that North Star that I have established in order to make sure that we achieve our goals.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Plans for new supermarket development in Inishowen refused over flooding fears

first_imgPlans to build a new supermarket in Carndonagh have been scrapped after it was deemed a flood risk, it has emerged. The owners of the site, which was home to the former Kelly’s Supermarket, proposed the demolition of the building in order to construct a new two-story supermarket.However, plans were turned down by An Bord Pleanála following an initial decision by Donegal County Council to grant permission for the redevelopment to Charles Kelly Properties Ltd. It is understood that refusal for the supermarket was made after an appeal was lodged by Monbro Developments, with An Bord Pleanála in turn voting against their inspector, who recommended that planning permission should be granted.In response to their decision, An Bord Pleanála said concerns had been raised over the ‘adequacy of existing flood protection measures on-site and the design, size and layout of the existing culvert located within the ownership of the applicant.”In August 2017, the area suffered serious flood damage, one of a number of issues why An Bord Pleanála said they made the refusal for the redevelopment.The main source of flood risk is found at Ballyloskey Stream which traverses the site partly through a culvert. And despite the applicant’s intention to build a retaining wall and mesh fence beside the existing stream, the independent building body said ‘it was not satisfied that the proposed development would not lead to an increased risk of flooding in the area’.“Having regard to the guidelines, it is considered that the proposed development would, therefore, be contrary to the proper planning and sustainable development of the area,” An Bord Pleanála concluded.Plans for new supermarket development in Inishowen refused over flooding fears was last modified: July 31st, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Donegal Youth Councillors get behind HPV vaccination programme

first_imgDonegal’s Youth Councillors are encouraging young people to ‘get the facts’ about the HSE’s HPV vaccine in order to increase uptake.The HPV vaccine schools programme is underway for all first year students in secondary school, including girls and, for the first time, boys.Back in 2008, the Donegal Youth Council of the time campaigned for the rollout of the HPV Vaccination for girls. The current Donegal Youth Council is keen to support this important work and are campaigning to influence their peers to get informed and get vaccinated. Members of the Donegal Youth Council with key messages of the HPV campaignIn preparation for this, a sub-group of youth councillors met with the HSE Area Medical Officer for a briefing on the virus, the importance of the HPV vaccination and the schools programme.  The sub-group were able to ask questions so they are well informed. When asked what messages they took from the session, one Youth Councillor said, “know where your information is coming from and get the facts” while another commented, “the vaccine is free and it can change your life.”Donegal Youth Councillors finding out about HPV and the importance of vaccination from Pauline Gallagher – Area Medical Officer HSEThe next steps will be for the Youth Council to promote the key messages, to their followers via their Instagram and Twitter accounts, throughout the rollout of the school’s programme, and also through discussions with their families and friends. The Donegal Youth Council is one of 31 Comhairle na nÓg’s throughout the country, so their message will be wide-reaching.The sub group will report back to the wider Youth Council at their next county-wide meeting.  However, in the meantime, all youth councillors have received information on the campaign. HPV is a virus that can cause cervical cancer, and other cancers in both women and men. The uptake of the HPV vaccine has a participation rate of approximately 70%, which is an increase of 20% points since 2017.  Donegal Youth Councillors get behind HPV vaccination programme was last modified: September 18th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal Youth Councilhpv vaccinelast_img read more

Bearish numbers for soybeans

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The report today was bearish for soybeans with ending stocks increasing from 330 million bushels to 365 million bushels. The U.S. soybean yield was estimated at 50.6, compared to last month at 48.9, while trade estimates were 49.2 Old crop soybean exports did increase by 60 million bushels which was at the top end of estimates. New crop soybean demand increased by 45 million bushels as exports were up 35 million bushels and crush was increased by 10 million bushels. With ending stocks up so much due to the increased production it was unable to hold the gains seen earlier in the day.U.S. soybean production was estimated at 4.201 billion bushels, up 141 million bushels from last month. The last two weeks soybean prices have moved some days on the bigger supply while other days it was increased demand. In the end today, the higher production is now apparent.U.S. soybean production is a new record. It is just a matter of how high it goes. The higher production will keep soybean prices under pressure with November CBOT soybeans having great difficulty in trading above the $10 mark in these current conditions. Earlier today it had reached $9.90. At 12:30 p.m. they were $9.62.Corn production was lowered as expected. The U.S. corn yield was 174.4 bushels per acre while production was 15.093 billion bushels. Production was lowered 60 million bushels. Both yield and production were above trade expectations.Prior to the report corn was down 1 cent, soybeans were up 7 cents, and wheat at up 2 cents. At 12:30 pm corn was down 3 cents, soybeans down 18 cents, and wheat was up 3 cents.Today’s USDA monthly supply and demand report will be closely watched to see two important numbers in the tables for corn and soybeans. First, will be the corn yield. Traders are expecting a slight decline from last month’s U.S. yield at 175.1 bushels per acres. The average trade estimate put the corn yield at 173.4. Second, will be how much USDA increases soybean demand. In addition, the soybean yield is expected to increase. While many are suggesting the U.S. soybean yield to eventually be above 50 bushels per acre, the trade expects that number to be a stair step process, taking several months to reach that level.The biggest number traders will be watching should be in soybeans and the export demand. Old crop exports are expected to increase 40 to 60 million bushels.  If USDA increases the yield from last month’s 48.9 bushels to the trade estimates of 49.2 bushels and exports grow 40-60 million bushels, then ending stocks do not increase.  Last month USDA put the new crop soybean ending stocks at 330 million bushels. The general trend of thought the past month has been for the corn yield to come down while the soybean yield will go up. Early corn harvest reports across Ohio and the Midwest indicates corn yields are disappointing and below previous expectations.  Many in Ohio will have above average corn yields but not record breaking. The U.S. Gulf soybean basis for soybeans is at a big inverse for nearby barges due in part to tight U.S. stocks, record September export demand, as well as soybean harvest starting later than expected. The vessel lineup at the Gulf for September is largely for soybean boats. With the heavy rains last month in Louisiana, harvest has been delayed across much of the southeast region of the U.S.Keep in mind that grain prices are constantly looking at fundamentals. Things like crop size, yields, and exports go a long way to determine prices. But other outside factors also come into the equation. The U.S. dollar, crude oil, and interest rates are some of those factors.  Permeating throughout the financial markets almost constantly are interest rates. Last week on Friday U.S. stocks took a big hit, closing down 394 points. A big factor for the decline suggested U.S. interest rates could be increasing during this months Fed meeting on September 20 and 21. As of today the likelihood of seeing an interest rate increase is at 21%.Don’t be surprised to see a wide price range for soybeans after the report is released. It could easily be 15-25 cents within the first 10 minutes of the report. The computers often are programmed to make buys or sells based upon the headlines. For example, one number in the soybean table could be negative or bearish while another number is positive or bullish. Those types of headlines could see the computers both buying and selling in a short period of time. The last thing producers want to see is a bullish report and then a lower close. That suggests the bullish news is no longer bullish.Corn is still in a trading range. December corn is at $3.38, November soybeans at $9.62, and December wheat at $4.07. Soybeans appear to have the highs in near term unless weather problems delay harvest or export demand increases even more.last_img read more

Two men and the sea

Mayilvaganan with Barracuda fishThey are not old men but they are one with the sea, fishing in waters which has brought them both business and fun. In a brainwave Manoj Chacko, 40 and R. Mayilvaganan, 45 hit upon the idea of taking deep-sea fishing beyond mere trawlers and make it a pleasure ride for those who had heard about it but had no clue as to how to go about the adventure. With its headquarters in Chennai, Barracuda Bay Adventure, an year and half old company, is now a name to reckon with; for the first time in Tamil Nadu, fishing has become more than just a wait and watch pastime. It’s adventure. “But honestly all we wanted to do was provide a platform for keen enthusiasts to fish. Safely, economically and ecologically.” says promoter Manoj Chacko.Chacko and Mayil had to fight for over a year to obtain permits and clearances to start their business. “It was very difficult. We were bounced around from one department to another. Nobody seemed to know what permit to give us! But six months ago, the paperwork was finally stamped and filed, and Barracuda Bay escorted its first passengers into the deep blue sea. Model Divya Pandurangam with fishing equipmentWith over twenty years of angling experience the two promoters wanted other enthusiasts to share in the joys of deep sea fishing. Chacko is an interior designer by profession while Mayil is a real estate developer. “Tamil Nadu has such a gorgeous coastline and the Marina at Chennai has so much to offer. The feeling of going out to sea on a luxurious boat cutting through the swells is an amazing experience. We wanted others to have this opportunity,” enthuses Chacko. And then the passionate angler in him takes over: “It is such a great feeling. Even after doing this for so long, it is indescribable to see barracuda rocketing out of the water chasing baitfish, giant trevally chasing plugs and poppers around the wrecks, or the sound of screaming reels with a king or a sailfish taking line.” But what of those who wish merely to experience the deep blue? “You just want to laze about nibbling on a sandwich and watch the occasional dolphin pod crisscrossing the front of the bow? Well please go ahead and do just that!

Netflix to borrow another 2B to pay its programming bills

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO – Netflix plans to borrow another $2 billion to help pay for the exclusive series and movies that its management credits for helping its video streaming service reel in millions of new subscribers during the past five years.The additional debt load announced Monday isn’t a surprise. Netflix needs more cash because it has been spending more money than its business generates since its expansion into original programming with the 2013 release of “House of Cards.”Netflix expects to burn through $3 billion this year. The $2 billion that Netflix plans to raise in a bond offering will be lopped onto it existing debt of $11.8 billion. That includes another $1.9 billion debt offering that Netflix completed earlier this year.The borrowing binge appears to be paying off. Netflix has gained nearly 100 million subscribers since September 2013, including 7 million in the past quarter. The company recently predicted it will add another 9.4 million subscribers by the end of this year.The Los Gatos, California, company believes all its spending on award-winning programming will help it build an insurmountable lead in video streaming as other major entertainment companies such as Walt Disney Co. join the fray with a current crop of competitors that include Amazon, Hulu and HBO.Investors have been betting heavily on Netflix to win. The company’s stock is worth seven times more than it was five years ago, to give Netflix a market value of about $146 billion. The shares slipped $3.13 to close Monday at $329.54.last_img read more
