Watch It’s Only a Play’s Matthew Broderick Talk Opening Nights, Bueller & Balls

first_imgIt’s Only a Play star Matthew Broderick, on the eve of his own opening night, stopped by Late Night to chat with Seth Meyers about everything from good and bad reviews to Ferris Bueller to something about Nathan Lane and balls. “I had a Ferris Bueller poster in my bedroom growing up,” Meyers admitted. “You looked at everything I did through my entire high school years. I have so much to apologize for.” Life imitates art as the Tony winner, just as the wacky characters of It’s Only a Play do, remembers opening night parties, talks up his playwriting friend (for Broderick, it’s This Is Our Youth scribe Kenneth Lonergan) and does some serious name-dropping.

First Lady Frances Wolf Visits Elmwood Academy During School Breakfast Week, Highlights Wolf Administration Commitment to Investing in Education

first_img March 06, 2019 Education,  First Lady Frances Wolf,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Today, First Lady Frances Wolf joined Feeding Pennsylvania and the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank for a visit to Mechanicsburg Area School District’s Elmwood Academy as part of National School Breakfast Week. During her visit, the First Lady highlighted Governor Wolf’s ongoing commitment to investing in education at all levels – including ensuring that every child in the commonwealth has access to a healthy breakfast to start their day.“Ask any teacher and they will tell you that food is a basic school supply – just like books, just like pencils,” said First Lady Frances Wolf. “If kids don’t have a full stomach, they simply cannot do their best in school. Yet today, one in six Pennsylvania children struggle with hunger. That’s why we started the Pennsylvania School Breakfast initiative last year to help more schools, like Elmwood Academy, expand access to breakfast programs that work.”“Our greatest resource as Pennsylvanians is our students – and schools like Elmwood that prepare them to be our future leaders. We must ensure that we give them the tools they need to succeed – and that includes a healthy breakfast every morning.”Governor Wolf proposed the School Breakfast Initiative as part of his 2017-18 budget to help more children start their day with a healthy meal. Last year the Department of Education announced an inaugural round of grants to help 200 Pennsylvania schools make breakfast available and accessible to all students. As part of that initiative, Elmwood Academy received $4,955 in School Breakfast funding which enabled the school to purchase a “grab-n-go” breakfast cart to encourage more students to participate in breakfast. Mechanicsburg Area High School also received a $4,979 School Breakfast grant, which has helped to increased their breakfast participation by 50 percent.“I would like to thank First Lady Frances Wolf and Governor Tom Wolf for their commitment to ensuring that no child goes hungry,” said Mechanicsburg Area School District Superintendent Dr. Mark Leidy. “Through their advocacy and investment, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of students starting their day with a healthy breakfast at our high school – and with the First Lady’s support we are hoping to increase participation here at Elmwood Academy as well.”The First Lady was joined at Elmwood Academy by food security advocates and school nutrition experts from Feeding Pennsylvania and the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.“Feeding Pennsylvania and our member food banks are working every day to ensure that no child in our state goes hungry,” said Jane Clements-Smith, Executive Director, Feeding Pennsylvania. “Nutrition is essential for learning and students who are hungry will not be able to concentrate and thus not be able to learn to their fullest potential. Hear the Pennsylvania Crunch! is a great way to get schools involved in the breakfast program and helps to spread awareness for the 1 in 6 children in our state who are at risk of hunger.”Hear the Pennsylvania Crunch! is organized by Feeding Pennsylvania to spread the message that every child in Pennsylvania should have access to a healthy school breakfast. Research shows that eating breakfast helps children concentrate and learn while in school. Students who eat school breakfast perform better on tests, have better health, and are less likely to be absent from school. School breakfast is a critical support for struggling families trying to stretch limited resources and provides children a significant portion of the nutrition they need to learn and be healthy.The School Breakfast initiative is another example of Governor Wolf’s continued commitment to ensuring that Pennsylvania has the best public school system and workforce in the nation. His 2019-20 state budget proposal builds on the success of PAsmart to create opportunities for Pennsylvanians from birth to retirement. The governor’s Statewide Workforce, Education, and Accountability Program (SWEAP) expands access to early childhood education, increases investments in schools, and partners with the private sector to build on the PAsmart initiative.The governor also created the Keystone Economic Development and Workforce Command Center to expand the collaboration between government and the private sector to address the skills gap and worker shortages. The departments of Community and Economic Development, Labor and Industry, and State will work with external leaders from the Chamber of Business and Industry, AFL-CIO and Team Pennsylvania to build the strongest workforce in the nation.

Celebrating Geocaching’s Sweet 16!

first_imgHow do you think geocaching will change in the next 16 years? Share with your Friends:More SharePrint RelatedCelebrate the evolution of geocaching with the Big Blue Switch souvenir!April 25, 2017In “Community”Groundspeak Weekly Newsletter – May 2, 2012May 3, 2012In “Groundspeak’s Weekly Newsletter”Who’s Hiding in Your GPS Device?July 19, 2010In “Community” Today, May 2nd, marks the 16th anniversary of the geocaching phenomenon. As we reminisce on all the wonderful geocaching moments we’ve experienced over the years, it’s fun to journey back to the year 2000 to see how it all began.A Look Back in TimeThe year was 2000. Y2K had come and gone. A dozen eggs cost 89 cents. “Survivor” was in its first season. The Summer Olympics were held in Sydney. Traditional outdoor activities at the time included hiking, bird watching, and camping. But then everything changed.The Big Blue SwitchOn May 2nd at approximately midnight, the “big blue switch” was pressed and selective availability on civilian GPS receivers was removed. Twenty-four satellites around the globe processed new orders, and the accuracy of GPS technology improved tenfold. Prior to this date, only the military had the ability to receive accurate GPS readings. Now, the world and all its wonderful people could pinpoint their precise location. The First Geocache HideIn celebration with this new-found freedom in global navigation, a computer consultant named Dave Ulmer started The Great American GPS Stash Hunt. The idea was simple: hide a container out in the woods and record the coordinates using  a GPS unit. On May 3rd, he placed a black bucket in the woods near Beavercreek, Oregon along with a logbook, pencil, and other various trade items – the first geocache. He shared the coordinates of his “stash” with an online community on sci.geo.satellite-nav and the “game” took off.Dave Ulmer and the Original StashGeocaching.comFor the first few months, the stash game was played mostly by experienced GPS users who already used the technology for outdoor activities. Mike Teague, the first person to find Ulmer’s stash, began to gather other users’ posted coordinates and document them on his personal website.Jeremy Irish, Founder of Geocaching.com, stumbled upon Teague’s site while researching GPS technology and was intrigued by the idea. He purchased a GPS device and went out on his first geocaching adventure that weekend. After an enjoyable experience, Irish decided to start a website for the activity. Adopting the newly dubbed term “geocaching” and putting his web skills to good use, he launched Geocaching.com with only 75 geocaches.From left to right: Founders Bryan, Jeremy, and EliasHistoric Dates–March 24, 2001: The first Geocaching Event takes place in Austin, Texas.The first geocaching event–August 30, 2001: The first Travel Bug® is released by Jeremy.

FCC Report Finds Better Broadband Needed for Schools and Libraries

first_imgaudrey watters However, nearly 80% of all survey respondents say their broadband connections do not fully meet their current needs. 55% say that slow connection speed is the primary reason their needs aren’t met. 39% says that cost of service is the major barrier to meeting their Internet needs. 27% cite installation costs as the barrier. Rural schools and libraries, in particular, struggle to provide adequate bandwidth to their users.What Are E-Rate Recipients Using Broadband For?Email tops the list of the most-used app by E-rate users. 98% of respondents say that’s what Internet access is regularly used for and 69% say it’s the most essential app. For libraries, online reference materials are the most important and most used app. 86% of library staff and patrons regularly use online reference materials, and 62% say it’s the most essential tool they access online.Schools and libraries both indicate that they see usage increasing. For example, 56% of all E-rate survey respondents say they plan on expanding their usage of digital textbooks in the next 2 years, and 45% say they plan to implement or expand their use of handheld devices for educational purposes. Currently, the average student-to-computer ratio of those schools responding to the survey is 5.86 to 1.According to the FCC, this data will help the agency make better policy decisions for the E-rate program. The FCC has made better broadband access one of its major goals. The FCC has released a report on the state of broadband connectivity at those schools and libraries that receive funds from the federal E-rate program. The E-rate program provides more than $2.25 billion in funding annually in order to offer discounts for schools and libraries so that they can obtain affordable telecommunications services and Internet access.The report is based on data from a survey conducted in 2010 that looks at broadband usage in schools and libraries. The survey found that almost all respondents have some form of broadband connection to at least one facility. Just 2% use satellite and 3% use dial-up in order to access the Internet.Most schools and libraries that responded have Internet speeds greater than 3 Mbps (55%). 10% have speeds greater than 100 Mbps. More than half of the school districts that responded (60%) say they subscribe to a fiber optic connection. Private schools are more than twice as likely as public schools to have either cable (31% to 16%) or DSL (29% to 16%). And 66% of respondents say they provide some wireless connectivity for students, staff and library patrons.
