BSEF Sponsors two locals for study abroad

first_imgBatesville, IN— The Batesville Community Education Foundation is pleased to announce that the 2020 recipients have been selected for a sponsorship program that assists Batesville High School students who want to study abroad during high school, according to BCEF executive director Anne Wilson. BHS students Zoe Peters and Kayla Stone were chosen to each receive $2500 toward program fees for the Indiana University  Honors Program in Foreign Language. This program sends students to foreign countries for the summer to further their study of foreign language and to be immersed in another culture.“Our selection committee chose these two students to support financially,” Wilson explained. “Both students will be living in Spain for six weeks—Peters in Ciudad Real and Stone in León. This sponsorship from BCEF pays for more than one-half of their program fees.”The Andy Koors Legacy Fund was created by the Batesville Community Education Foundation after the nonprofit received the proceeds of a life insurance policy held by the former BHS German teacher who passed away unexpectedly in February 2017. The BCEF board of directors manages this fund to promote initiatives that it believes reflect the values displayed by Koors during his life, such as his dedication to foreign language and generosity to students. This sponsorship program, in its third year, is one of those initiatives, along with the multi-purpose Bulldog Center at BHS.last_img read more

#Donkomi: Leroy Sane’s future out of our hands – Man City boss Pep Guardiola

first_imgManchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has admitted that Leroy Sane’s future is up in the air although he wishes the player will remain at the club.While the Premier League champions remain determined to keep the winger this summer, reports suggest that that Bayern Munich have held ‘positive’ discussions with Sane’s representatives over a potential move to the Allianz Arena.Speaking after Sane scored twice in City’s 6-1 friendly win over Hong Kong side Kitchee, Pep Guardiola said the player can become even better if he stays in England.“He did a good game, especially in the second half. He is a guy who we appreciate, I like him a lot. I think he can be better. Two times, three times I said: we want him to stay. That’s why he has an offer to extend his contract. It’s not in our hands. The agreement is good and if he wants to leave, I’ll be sad. Hopefully, he stays.”Sane has been strongly linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium this summer with the German Champions touted as his most likely destination.He had a mixed 2018/2019 campaign with Man City winning the domestic treble with the side but after a good start to the season, he lost his starting place in the side.He also saw himself hauled off a number of times after sub-par first-half performances by manager Pep Guardiola, leading to suggestions that the player might leave due to frustration.Man City are, however, desperate to get the 23-year-old to sign a new contract and although Bayern president Uli Hoeness has expressed interest in the player, he admitted that it would cost “an insane amount” of money to sign him in the summer.City remain confident that Sane will sign a new deal with the club as he has not expressed any desire to leave.However, it appears that Bayern Munich’s German players can’t wait to have the Manchester City winger join their ranks ahead of next season.Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski says the club’s German players remain optimistic that Sane will join them and are eagerly awaiting his arrival, particularly following the departures of wingers, Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.“Bayern’s German players are now very much looking forward to Sane’s signing, but we have to wait and see what is going on,” Lewandowski told Goal. “They [Robben and Ribery] are legends, of course their departure is sad.“But Bayern will also sign more and better replacements. I believe that the winger Bayern will sign in the future will be as good as Robben and Ribery. In order to have a good performance next season and to overcome Dortmund, I hope that Bayern can do something in the transfer market this summer.”Sane joined City from Schalke in 2016 for £37m and has won two Premier League titles, two League Cups and the FA Cup.last_img read more

2015 Ohio Youth Capital Challenge winners named

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A plan to educate young students about agriculture and fund 4-H agriscience programs in major cities earned Leah Brown of Warren County, Natalie Pavlick of Hamilton County and Tyler White and Mercedes Woodson, both of Montgomery County, the first place award in the 2015 Ohio Youth Capital Challenge finals.Sponsored by Ohio 4-H, Ohio FFA and Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, the challenge brings together youths age 14 to 18 from around the state to discuss community issues and concerns and then work together to propose policies and programs to solve the issues.The contest started in March when groups met to learn about public policy issues and began planning their proposals. Then in May, 10 teams competed to advance in the semifinals, with four teams advancing to the finals, which were held during the Ohio State Fair.The teams were judged on their public policy proposals dealing with a specific issue or problem. In the final competition, the teams described the steps necessary to have their public policy proposal adopted by the appropriate government authorities. Scholarships were given to each participant based on their team’s placing: first, $250; second, $150; third, $50, fourth, $25.Judges for the finals were Sereana Howard Dresbach, Dresbach Consulting; Elizabeth Casasanta, Ohio State University assistant director of competitive admissions, and state Rep. Brian Hill, chairman of the Ohio House Agriculture and Rural Development Committee.“You’ve all spent a long time on your projects, and I can tell the effort you all put in and the passion you expressed today for the topics you chose,” Hill said. “Maybe we will even see some of these policies being proposed or implemented in legislation in the general assembly.”Other finalists and their proposals:Second: Natalyn Landis of Fairfield County. Her proposal addressed dropout rates. It suggested funding for after-school programs in every county including an after-school educator to implement programs free for all students or requiring every school in the state offer the New Directions After School Program.Third: Emily Kanney of Richland County and Jacob Serio of Morrow County. They want to improve roads in Richland County and proposed redistribution of the gas tax so more of it goes to road maintenance and improvement.Fourth: Katie Conley, Rachael Herring and Alec Ogg, all of Wyandot County and Shaye Creamer and Jordan Furer, both of Ridgemont High School. Their “Fitness Out of the Classroom” proposal focused on getting Fitbits for eighth graders in six schools to track their fitness and see if fitness improves based on having a Fitbit.last_img read more

Netbot, One Of The Great App.net Apps For iOS, Is Now Free

first_imgTapbots announced Wednesday that Netbot, their App.net client for iPhone and iPad, is now free “for an unspecified period of time.”The Tapbots App.net post announcing the Netbot sale says it’s “[I]n order to spur adoption of App.Net.” Netbot was born out of Tapbots’ beloved Twitter client, Tweetbot, and anyone who uses that app will quickly get used to Netbot. For those who haven’t used Tweetbot, just trust that Tapbots is a top-shelf iOS shop and makes apps that feel good and make sense. If you’ve wanted to try out App.net, this is the app with which to do it.In fact, it was when Tapbots announced their App.net client that much of the tech world started to take App.net seriously. App.net is betting that a paid-for social infrastructure will give rise to a vast field of great apps that have sustainable businesses. That plan needs buy-in from big-name developers.When Tapbots joined the service, things got interesting. The app caused a huge spike in attention when it first appeared for $4.99. But App.net’s adoption hasn’t been as swift as the Tapbots duo, programmer Paul Haddad and designer Mark Jardine, had hoped. As Haddad confirmed on Twitter, going free means that Tapbots stands to make more money from the App.net Developer Incentive Program, which doles out over $20,000 per month to ADN developers based on user satisfaction ratings. That must be a better deal than app sales at this point.But App.net announced this week that paid users will now get 10GB of cloud storage behind their accounts, which app developers can put to any use they can dream up. Not only does that mean more powerful applications can be built, it means that now App.net can build the same kind of freemium revenue model as services like Dropbox and Evernote use. If paying for the service gets you the storage space, App.net can give away the Twitter-like messaging features for free.Paid-only adoption of App.net hasn’t lived up to these bigtime developers’ expectations. But if the service becomes free for messaging-only users, that could easily change. jon mitchell The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Related Posts center_img Tags:#App.net#Tapbots Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more

Google+, What’s the fuss?

first_imgIf you are interested in learning a bit more about Google+, join +Kevin Gamble and +Stephen Judd for a free eXtension webinar on Friday December 2, 2011 at 2 PM EST.Launched less than six months ago (June 28, 2011), Google+ is a social networking service provided by Google, Inc. As a social network, Google+ shares traits (ability to share updates, links, photos, and videos) with other large social networks like Twitter and Facebook.I began using Google+ when it first became available in a field-trial status, and have been impressed with its ease of use and the level of interaction among the users. Because users can comment on posted content, there isn’t a length constraint, and comments remain with their original post, conversations are easier to have than they are on Twitter. I’ve also found the ability to share to limited groups easier to use than similar features in Facebook.With the recent advent of Pages in Google+, businesses and organizations can also interact with other Google+ users. I’m holding off on fully endorsing the use of a Google+ page, until features like multiple administrators are made available.Below is some basic information about Google+ and how it works:Your Profile:At the core of Google+ is your personal profile, information you enter about yourself and can include: an Introduction, occupation, employment history, education, places you’ve lived, contact information, demographic information, photos, and related links. There are privacy settings to control which information is visible publicly, versus visible to people you connect to on the service.The Network:The usefulness of Google+ will depend on who is using Google+ among the folks you want to interact with and on making those connections. When you first start using the service, you can search for people in your address book you may know are using Google+, or by searching by name or topic of interest. As you add people to your network, you place them in Circles, which later allow you to publish updates to selected Circles, or view updates from one Circle at a time.Following people is not strictly reciprocal:With Google+, you can follow an individual without them following you back, and vice versa. (This is in contrast to the way Facebook originally worked, where the process of “friending” someone, required the agreement of both parties. Facebook has since introduced the subscribe feature, which changes this dynamic.) However, you do have the ability to block a person, so he or she can’t comment on your posts and will only be able to see information you post publicly.Posting:You can publish content to Google+ through the web interface, mobile applications, Google Reader, or through +1 buttons on various websites. Unlike Twitter, there’s no character limit for Google+ updates, and they can include embedded photos, videos, and links. However, formatting options are limited to bold, italics, and strikethrough. When you publish content, you can choose the people to share that content with, by making it Public or sharing it only with selected individuals or Circles. The users you share a post with will have the ability to comment on or reshare the post, unless you have locked the post or disabled comments.Reading posts:By default, Google+ will display content that people you follow have posted. These posts may have been shared publicly, or shared with you directly or via a Circle the poster has you in. You will also see your own posts. You can comment on, reshare, or +1 these posts. You can filter this view by selecting to view the posts from an individual Circle instead.Other features:Google+ has several other features in addition to content-sharing:Hangouts (group video chat for up to ten participants) (I have found this to be one of the most useful tools on Google+ for enabling real-time collaboration with geographically dispersed groups)Messenger (group text chat for up to 50 people, available through mobile application)GamesSearch (ability to search–based on people and content–and save searches)Photos (share photos from Picasa, and instantly upload photos from mobile devices)Pages (a way for companies, organizations, brands, and other non-persons to share content and interact with other Google+ users)Overall, Google+ has become my preferred social network and I look forward to using it as it continues to change. Like any social network, it will benefit from wider adoption, so that I can find more interesting folks to interact with.If you are interested in learning a bit more about Google+, join me and +Kevin Gamble for a free eXtension webinar on Friday December 2, 2011 at 2 PM EST.

No. But in the last few years, Tottenham are fighting with this type of club. “That’s why no-one likes Tottenham much, that’s why everyone wants to challenge us. “It’s a massive game for us every time. Wolves beat us and they behaved like they won the Premier League. Then on Wednesday they lost to Crystal Palace. It’s because Tottenham have created something special — and now we are a target. “When we fought with Leicester, everyone wanted to kill us!
