first_img December 18, 2018 Education,  Healthcare,  Human Services,  Press Release,  Schools That Teach Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf’s Ready to Start Task Force, established in September to develop a four-year framework of strategies to address health, human services, and education policy for infants and toddlers age zero to three in Pennsylvania, announced its key themes and initial findings today.“The Ready to Start Task Force findings are focused on our youngest Pennsylvanians and their families,” Gov. Wolf said. “Because we know that a child’s brain grows faster from birth to three than at any other point in their lives, this work is truly shaping the future of our state.”The key themes and initial findings were developed following six regional listening sessions with stakeholders representing health care, human services, education, research, businesses and employers, foundations, and research organizations. These initial findings include a need to:Ensure access to high-quality care for all children and families, especially those with the greatest needs;Improve system quality and capacity;Improve coordination and alignment of services and supports;Prioritize outreach, education, and awareness, including building meaningful partnerships with parents, families, and communities;Address the needs of the whole child and whole family through comprehensive supports, including those for mental and behavioral health;Help infants and toddlers get a strong start for school through early literacy and other evidence-based programs.Read the full content of the initial findings here.These initial findings will be used to create a final report for the development of a four-year framework for advancing the well-being of Pennsylvania’s youngest residents and their families. The report is expected to be completed in early 2019.The Ready to Start Task Force was led by six co-chairs appointed by the Governor: Jodi Askins, Executive Director of PennAEYC; Maureen Cronin, Executive Director of The Arc of Pennsylvania; Nyanda Finley De Santos, parent and Director of Family and Community Engagement at Community Services for Children’s Head Start Program; Janet Haas, M.D., Chair of the William Penn Foundation Board of Directors; Dr. Valerie Kinloch, Dean of the University of Pittsburgh School of Education; and David Rubin, MD, MSCE, Director of Population Health Innovation and PolicyLab at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).Members of the Wolf Administration who supported the work of the Task Force include Dr. Rachel Levine, Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health; Teresa Miller, Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services; Suzann Morris, Deputy Secretary of the Office of Child Development and Early Learning; and Dr. Loren Robinson, Deputy Secretary for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention.Task Force co-chairs hosted six regional roundtable listening discussions from October through mid-December with members of the Administration and stakeholders. Approximately 150 stakeholders representing early childhood care and education providers, health care practitioners, research organizations, workforce development, state and local government, foundations, employers, and community-based organizations participated in the sessions.At each regional listening session, stakeholders were asked to provide feedback focused on three guiding questions: How can we improve health outcomes of infants, toddlers, and their families?How can we strengthen the home environment for infants, toddlers, and their families?How can we prepare infants and toddlers for future school success?In addition to these face-to-face Task Force meetings, the governor invited the public to share their ideas and thoughts through an online feedback form. The form is still available to those who wish to weigh in on the priorities and key themes.“The Ready to Start Task Force complements my administration’s robust agenda for improving the lives of all children, which includes access to high-quality pre-K through 12 education and access to health and human services programs and supports,” Gov. Wolf said. “I am pleased to see the progress this group has made in developing these key themes and initial findings and I look forward to reviewing a full task force report when it is completed in the very near future.” Ready to Start Task Force Presents Initial Findings to Governor Wolfcenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Concern growing over synthetic marijuana

first_imgReuters 19 March 2012Three U.S. teenagers ended up in the emergency department with altered mental states and seriously elevated heart rates after smoking synthetic marijuana, doctors say in a new report that adds to earlier evidence the popular drug can be dangerous.One 16-year-old girl who was brought in by her boyfriend refused to move or speak and did not respond when doctors rubbed her chest hard or pinched her. While her urine test was positive for THC, one of the active ingredients in natural marijuana, her boyfriend said they had also smoked K2, one of the many names for synthetic marijuana. The drugs were recently banned in the U.S. and the Drug Enforcement Administration has proposed to classify them permanently as schedule 1 controlled substances — a category that includes heroin and natural marijuana. The synthetic versions are blends of herbs and spices laced with cannabis-like chemicals, and are sold under a variety of names, including Spice, K2 and Red X Dawn. The synthetic drugs are believed to be much stronger than regular pot, however, and the products may include other ingredients, too. “Because it’s unregulated we don’t know exactly what’s in it,” said Dr. Joanna Cohen, one of the authors of the new report, which was published Monday in the journal Pediatrics. read more

EPL: Bournemouth set to avoid relegation

first_imgRelatedPosts Fulham keen on Lookman loan deal Gundogan tests positive for coronavirus Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Everton vs. Bournemouth Venue: Goodison Park Kick off: 4PMBournemouth will travel to Everton this afternoon knowing that they need to win to stand any chance of avoiding relegation from the Premier League. The Cherries are currently 19th in the table, three points behind 17th-placed Aston Villa, but they will also need 18th-placed Watford to drop points on the final weekend in order to escape the bottom three.Everton have finished seventh, eighth and eighth in their last three Premier League campaigns, but the Toffees are currently down in 11th and cannot finish any higher, with 10th-placed Arsenal four points ahead.Thirteen wins, 10 draws and 14 defeats – that is how the Merseyside outfit have performed in their 37 Premier League games this term, while they have only been victorious in one of their last five in England’s top flight.The Toffees will enter this match off the back of an impressive win at Sheffield United, but they have been held by Southampton and Aston Villa in their last two league matches at Goodison Park.There is no question that the team have shown signs of improvement under Carlo Ancelotti, but it would be fair to say that there is still a lot of work for the Italian to do if he is to make the club top-six challengers. Bournemouth, meanwhile, have endured a difficult season, winning just eight of their 37 league matches to sit down in 19th spot in the table heading into the final set of fixtures for the 2019-20 campaign.The Cherries are three points off 18th-placed Watford and three points off 17th-placed Villa, meaning that they will need to beat Everton in this match and hope that Villa lose at West Ham United and Watford lose at Arsenal.All three teams have a similar goal difference, meaning that a victory for Bournemouth and defeats for Villa and Watford would more than likely keep the Cherries in the top flight, which would be some escape.Eddie Howe’s side will enter this match off the back of successive defeats to Manchester City and Southampton, but they did impressively beat Leicester City on July 12 and are certainly capable of picking up a big result.Bournemouth will be looking to do the double over Everton, having run out 3-1 winners in the reverse match earlier this season, but they have never won a Premier League match at Goodison Park. Everton possible XI: Pickford, Sidibe, Keane, Branthwaite, Digne, Davies, Gomes, Walcott, Sigurdsson, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin. Bournemouth possible XI: Ramsdale, Smith, Cook, Ake, Rico, Stanislas, Billing, Lerma, Brooks. Wilson, King.Tags: Aston VillaBournemouthEvertonGoodison ParkPremier Leaguelast_img read more

Lampard wants Blues to kick on

first_img “We lost at home (to Basle), “Lampard added. “(But) we won their last year in the Europa League. Let’s try to get that win. “Then you can relax in that last game a little bit. We need to go and do the job.” Basle inflicted Chelsea’s first home loss in the group phase of the tournament in nearly 10 years, ending a 29-match unbeaten streak, at the start of Group E. Since Chelsea have responded by winning 4-0 at Steaua and twice defeating Schalke 3-0. “The great thing about that game is it’s a bit of a distant memory now, because of results since then,” Lampard added. “It wasn’t easy to go and win three on the bounce (and) we still have a bit more to do. We can put the record straight on Tuesday.” If things are looking bright for Lampard and Chelsea as the busy festive period approaches, they are darkening for his former club West Ham and their boss Sam Allardyce. Chelsea needed no helping hand but got one when Guy Demel’s woeful back-pass was intercepted by Oscar and Jussi Jaaskelainen toppled the forward, with Lampard converting the spot-kick. The Hammers defence backed off and Oscar fired in a second before a trademark Lampard third from the edge of the area. Allardyce, who once again opted not to select a striker, bemoaned failings at both ends of the field following a fourth home loss of the season, the same number as in the whole of last term. Allardyce said: “We are suffering in front of goal and now we are suffering defensively with our errors. We have got to stop that. “Chelsea deserved to win but there have been far too many games where we have been on top and we’ve got nothing.” The continued absence of record signing Andy Carroll, who is continuing his rehabilitation from a heel injury in Amsterdam, and ankle surgery for key defender Winston Reid has hampered the Hammers. Allardyce would like to add to his options in January, but first his and the Hammers’ fortunes must improve. The manager added: “January’s a long way off with the amount of games we’ve got in December. We have six games in December as well as the one next week. “The big time for me is Fulham here (next Saturday) and the Tuesday night Crystal Palace away. That’s got to be four points minimum.” James Collins agreed. “We’ve got off to probably the worst start we could have thought of,” the Wales defender told West Ham TV. “Every game’s massive now. If ever there was a time to do it to get our season back on track, it’s the next two games. It’s up to us to put it right.” Frank Lampard ended his worst Barclays Premier League goalscoring run in a decade at his former club before calling on Chelsea to build momentum into the new year to show their title credentials. The 35-year-old scored twice in the 3-0 win at West Ham to end a 10-match scoreless run, since the opening day defeat of Hull, and take his tally to five goals in his last five games against the club he left for Stamford Bridge in 2001. Chelsea’s record goalscorer was given the freedom to roam further forwards with John Obi Mikel in midfield and took full advantage to end a two-match winless run, something of a crisis for Jose Mourinho’s men, with just a second away win of the season. “It was enjoyable, because from the first minute we were on it,” Lampard told Chelsea TV. “We haven’t done it well enough away from home this season and having lost some silly points in the last two games we were very up for it. “It was a very complete performance. We caused them loads of problems. “Obi in there is a great guarantee behind you. It certainly gives me a few more opportunities to get forward. “We knew exactly what we needed to do and when we do it like that we’re going to win a lot more games than we don’t win. “It’s really important now we go on a run and carry on with that form, whether we’re home or away.” Chelsea’s next Premier League clash is against Southampton in the first of nine December games in all competitions. First the focus is on securing qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League – something which eluded the 2012 European champions last season – and a victory at Basle which would secure top spot in Group E prior to the December 11 clash with Steaua Bucharest.

La Liga: Antoine Griezmann To Leave Atletico Madrid

first_imgMadrid: French international Antoine Griezmann has confirmed that he will be leaving La Liga side Atletico Madrid after the end of the current season.The team’s top scorer made the decision public on Tuesday after meeting with coach Diego Simeone and club President Miguel Angel Gil Marin, reports EFE news agency“After speaking to Cholo (Simeone) and Miguel Angel, I wanted to speak to the fans that have always supported me,” the forward said in a video posted on Atletico’s Twitter account.“I’ve chosen to explore new challenges.

Quarterbacks Wilson, Kimble enter competition for starting role for Syracuse

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ With the signings of Austin Wilson and Mitch Kimble, Syracuse is going to have five quarterbacks competing for the starting spot.That’s exactly what Scott Shafer wants.Wilson, from Camp Hill, Pa., committed to Syracuse back in May. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound quarterback also had an offer from Eastern Michigan. Kimble, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound quarterback out of Jerseyville (Ill.) Community High School, can both run and throw well.In high school, he ran an up-tempo offense that’s similar to the one Syracuse runs.“I think the biggest thing you see is athleticism. Whether he’s on the perimeter or whether he’s throwing it,” offensive coordinator George McDonald said. “He’s probably the most athletic quarterback that we have in terms of having the combination.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWilson and Kimble will join the competition in training camp with John Kinder, Terrel Hunt and Charley Loeb, who’s considered the frontrunner for the spot.Shafer said Wednesday he and the coaches made it a goal to go out and find a pair of quarterbacks to bring to Syracuse. The head coach said both of his new quarterbacks are “dynamic” and “competitive.”Syracuse has its quarterback candidates. Now, that group just needs to be pared down to an eventual successor to Ryan Nassib.“We’ve got good kids in-house that are going to compete,” Shafer said. “But you need to have competition with five or six guys at that position early on. And then we have to decipher where we’re at pretty early on.” Comments Published on February 7, 2013 at 12:35 am Contact Chris: | @chris_isemanlast_img read more
