Windsor Central High School custodian explains changes made for school year

first_img“We clean first, then sanitize to make sure everything is disinfected,” Miller said. “Just thank you,” Klumpp said. “Thank you for all of the hard work. The extra time. The extra hours. You can really tell he takes his job to heart.” WINDSOR (WBNG) — Today is Custodial Workers’ Recognition Day and one Windsor Central High School custodian explains the changes he and his team made to the school for the year. Even with the changes his staff has made, Miller says he’s still optimistic about the school year.  Miller and his staff are sanitizing high traffic areas with spray bottles with vital oxide two to three times a day. Miller says they had a plan in place over the summer but had to make a few adjustments. Klumpp says they spent about two weeks prepping for the first day. If Klumpp could say anything to Miller… “At first it was very stressful, but the district is a great one,” Steve Miller, head custodian, said. “We came out with a good schedule.” “You can disinfect and sanitize all areas,” Miller said. “It’s portable.” “When they open the door, touching their hands on everything,” Miller said. “Signing in with pencils, pens, computers.” Over the summer, with the help of Chris Klumpp, associate principal, Miller put directional arrows on the floors and hand sanitation stations in every classroom. “As of now, I think all of the kids are happy,” Miller said. “Staff’s happy. Everything is running pretty smooth.” “It’s kind of all hands on deck,” Klumpp said. “The reality is if everybody wasn’t getting their hands dirty there’s no way we were able to be open on time.” Miller and his staff are working day and night disinfecting and cleaning Windsor Central High School.last_img read more

Volunteer army in Indonesia helps fight coronavirus with data, web

first_imgAs Indonesia’s most populous province weighed tough movement restrictions to stop the new coronavirus, it turned to a loosely-knit volunteer group of data scientists and health experts.The Kawal COVID-19 (Guard against COVID-19) group organized a data model presented to the provincial governor that showed there could be 70,000 deaths by July in West Java if no restrictions were imposed compared with only 20,000 if it took tough action.West Java province locked down. “They were keen to provide help and we accepted it,” said Ridwansyah Yusuf Achmad, an adviser to the West Java governor who organized the online meetings with Kawal volunteers and praised the group as patriotic for donating its expertise.He, and other West Java officials, said the modeling from Kawal had swung the argument.In the face of patchy data and conflicting advice from Indonesia’s central government over measures to fight coronavirus, Kawal’s 800 volunteers have emerged as an increasingly important source of information and guidance.President Joko Widodo’s government has been reluctant to impose travel bans and other measures that could damage the economy in the world’s fourth-most populous country, a 5,000-km (3,100-mile) wide archipelago. Kawal has set out a clear argument for tougher action in the Southeast Asian country with the biggest death toll in the region by far.Pandu Riono, an epidemiologist at the University of Indonesia who is part of Kawal, presented the data to officials in West Java, home to over 50 million of Indonesia’s 270 million people.”West Java had the highest risk of transmission among Indonesian provinces,” he said. “We recommended a wider lockdown.”On May 20, West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil proclaimed the speed of transmission had been cut to a third and that the “curve had flattened”.The president’s office, the health ministry, and the communications ministry referred questions on Kawal to the presidential task force on COVID-19. However, Achmad Yurianto, the spokesman for the task force, told Reuters he had never heard of the group.The government, he said, has taken appropriate measures in fighting the virus.”This is learning by doing. We’ve never had an experience in handling COVID, right?” Yurianto said.No complacencyKawal’s origins lie in volunteer groups that were set up to monitor 2014 and 2019 elections and which published crowd-sourced results to try to prevent manipulation.It was launched on March 1, a day before Indonesia declared its first cases. Until then, the health minister had declared it was a “blessing from God” that Indonesia had no infections, although doctors feared that was more due to a lack of testing.”We want to prevent Indonesia from being complacent,” said Kawal co-founder Ainun Najib, adding that the key to saving lives was implementing clear policies.”The people who were supposed to take care of it didn’t”.It is not the only initiative in the field in Indonesia’s booming technology sector. Another one, Lapor COVID-19 (Report COVID-19) seeks to crowdsource coronavirus information.Other healthtech startups provide free online consultations, which the government itself has urged people to use.”Kawal COVID definitely came about because of distrust towards the information provided by the government, at least in the initial stages,” said Charlotte Setijadi, an anthropologist at Singapore Management University.”Generally, people don’t believe the data that the government provides, even now, so this is why we see grassroots efforts to filter out the fake news from reliable information.”Kawal’s online chat groups connect officials and civil servants across Indonesia.It also counters rampant online misinformation – such as that smelling red onions is effective against coronavirus – and uses crowdsourcing to help hospitals find protective gear.A bigger function is to give a more realistic picture of the extent of infections and deaths in Indonesia than the official version.Some data was withheld early in the epidemic to avoid panic, President Widodo has said. But a promise of a new website to share all data transparently has yet to be realized.Indonesia’s official figures show 23,165 infections and 1,418 dead, but officials have said the deaths only include those who have tested positive for the virus. The main doctors’ association says the figures could be higher because Indonesia has among the world’s lowest rates of testing.Kawal compiles raw data from provincial governments and hospitals that also shows those cases and deaths for which doctors can see no reason other than coronavirus – but which were never tested.According to Kawal’s calculations for 22 of Indonesia’s 34 provinces, at least 4,016 Indonesians have died with acute symptoms of the coronavirus.That could make the death toll well over 5,400 – about four times the official figure.”With data guarded centrally during the pandemic, it’s a good thing that there’s people who want to provide help from the outside,” said Shela Putri Sundawa, a Jakarta hospital doctor.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Carroll targets successive successes

first_img Press Association “You could see when I scored everyone was celebrating. And everyone was sliding in with last-ditch tackles at the end. We needed the three points. “It was good for us to get the win. It will be good for all the lads to get a rest in a rest now and hopefully we can get three points at the end of it.” Hammers boss Sam Allardyce was full of praise for Carroll following his typically bruising display against the Swans. He proved to be the perfect foil for Kevin Nolan, offering the forward two good goalscoring opportunities with knock-downs from long balls. Allardyce had been reluctant to start Carroll after such a long lay-off, but the striker had no qualms about playing the whole 90 minutes. “I’ve had eight weeks off and I’ve been working hard in the gym so my fitness is still high,” he added. “All the physios and backroom staff have been helping a lot to keep me fit in the gym when I couldn’t run. Obviously it showed with getting 90 minutes. It felt good. We got three points and I got the goal, so it was great.” Carroll made a successful return from a nine-week injury lay-off on Saturday, heading the Hammers to a much-needed 1-0 win over Swansea at Upton Park. “The points had dried up a bit so the lads are delighted with the win today,” Carroll told West Ham TV after the match. center_img Andy Carroll fired West Ham to their first victory since New Year’s Day and then targeted three more morale-boosting points against Aston Villa.last_img read more

Early Chance to Assess both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid in the Forthcoming La Liga Santander Season

first_imgEuropean Supercup:Tallin: Champions League winners Real Madrid and Europa League champions Atletico Madrid go head to head for the European Supercup in the Estonian capital of Tallin here on Wednesday night.The first Madrid football derby of the season promises to give an insight into both sides’ chances in the forthcoming La Liga Santander season which kicks off this weekend in Spain, reports Xinhua news agency.The clash also gives fans the chance to see what to expect of Real Madrid in the ‘post-Ronaldo’ era. Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure to Juventus should give greater opportunities for both Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema and after being criticized last season, the signs are that both players have so far benefitted from the Portuguese’s move.Neither team is up to full speed this pre-season with players such as Luka Modric, Rafael Varane, and Antoine Griezmann only recently returning to full training after their World Cup exploits this summer. But the game will be a chance to see how Rodrigo Fernandez performs in the heart of the Atletico midfield and perhaps for Madrid’s young Brazilian winger, Vinicius Jr to try and stake a place in the first team squad.Real Madrid have travelled to Estonia with all 29 available players with only the injured right-back Alvaro Odriozola remaining in the capital as new coach Julen Lopetegui looks to avoid giving any hints over who could be cut from the squad before the end of August.Thibaut Courtois could add a dash of spice to a fixture which rarely needs any extra ingredients, if the former Atletico keeper makes his Real Madrid debut following his move from Chelsea. Moreover, his inclusion would put the Belgian in pole position to kick off the season in goal ahead of Keylor Navas when Real Madrid take on Getafe this weekend.Although it is still early days Wednesday promises to see sparks fly on the pitch and some conclusions to be drawn off it.

Q&A with Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times

first_imgOne week after climbing back from a 22-point deficit only to fall short in the final minutes against Northwestern, Syracuse faces what could be its toughest challenge of the season when it takes on No. 2 Southern California at MetLife Stadium on Saturday, as part of New York’s College Classic.Last season, the Orange traveled out to California and lost to the Trojans 38-17, but this year, USC is far better and one of the favorites to win the national championship. The Daily Orange caught up with USC beat writer Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times to discuss some of the main storylines heading into the weekend and examine what to expect from either side.The D.O.: Doug Marrone has said that his team needs a perfect game to really keep up with Southern California this weekend. How has Lane Kiffin been billing this weekend’s game?Gary Klein: He has been building Syracuse up as a team that has obviously the leading passing offense in the nation after the first week, and I think, more than anything, he’s trying to guard against USC looking past Syracuse based on what happened last season having played them, and the fact that USC has been such a hyped team through the preseason. … I think he’s taking every chance to get his message out that Syracuse can be a formidable opponent and the Trojans better not look past them.The D.O.: If Syracuse does decide to sling the ball around like it did last week against Northwestern, how does that match up against the back seven of the USC defense? Is that a strength of the Trojans’ defense so far this season?AdvertisementThis is placeholder textGK: USC’s back seven was regarded as a strength going into the season, but after one game, it’s hard to tell just how good they are. They faced a quarterback from Hawaii, Sean Schroeder, who had never thrown a pass in a college game, and they intercepted two passes. The big question for USC had been their defensive line and just how well it was going to play because there are so many new players, and one of their starters was out. They were able to get pressure, cause some turnovers and create some havoc, so they were encouraged by that.The D.O.: One of the ways Syracuse was tested last week was on special teams. The Orange’s punt coverage was not very good on multiple occasions, and USC has some of the most talented returners there are in college football. Is that an area where USC feels it has a distinct advantage?GK: I’m not sure that they necessarily feel they have an advantage, although it would certainly appear that way. Since Lane Kiffin has arrived, with John Baxter as his special teams coach, they spend as much time, it seems, working on special teams as they do working on offense and defense. Whereas before, special teams during the Pete Carroll era were more of an afterthought, if you will. This is something that is very, very important to them, and they work on it extremely hard. … They’ve obviously seen the film of what happened to Syracuse, and Syracuse is going to take pains to fix those mistakes, but I’m sure USC is looking forward to going up against those units and seeing if they can have some success.The D.O.: It wasn’t difficult for Doug Marrone to pick out players on USC that his team needs to focus on because they are the players that everyone has been talking about. But did Lane Kiffin identify any particular players he wanted his team to focus on?GK: Most of the talk at this point has been about Nassib, the quarterback, since he had such a big day. I know Syracuse has a receiver (Alec Lemon) that did not play in the last game who is a big part of his attack. They are thinking that he is probably going to come back or counting on the fact that they have to play against him. Those are the headline guys at this point.

Doheny features exhibit on civil rights

first_imgThe USC Libraries’ Special Collections Display in Doheny Memorial Library is featuring a small exhibit, Civil Rights: A View of the Struggle, throughout February in honor of Black History Month.Literary context · The collection includes newspaper clippings and a documentation of Yvonne Burke, a black Congresswoman in the 1970s. – Talia Taniela | Daily TrojanMelinda Hayes, the head of the special collections department, said the exhibit serves to commemorate the black civil rights movement and to give students an understanding of their rights.“Bringing attention to the things that happened [in] the past can relate to the things happening in the present,” Hayes said. “We wanted to honor Black History Month by taking out some of the materials we have in our collections. This shows how far we’ve come from where we were 40 years ago, where we are now and how far we still have to go.”The collection contains a series of newspaper clippings, including some from the Daily Trojan; books by acclaimed writers, such as James Baldwin and the Watts Writers Workshop that date back to 1965; and a thorough documentation of the political life of Yvonne Burke, one of the few black women to be elected to Congress in the 1970s.“It’s easier to get a sense of the importance of the materials when you can gauge them in a physical way rather than through the library catalogue,” said Hugh McHarg, executive director of communications and public planning for USC Libraries.“It’s much more dramatic, in a way, the impact of the kind of stories that exist in any kind of library collection once you see [the display] for yourself.”Cynthia Brass, president of the Black Staff and Faculty Caucus, said exhibits like Civil Rights remind students to reflect on the past.“Even though it’s labeled as the month of February, black history is every day of the year. The month itself gives everyone the change to get a better view and understanding and improve their knowledge about this history,” Brass said. “Getting people to gather as a whole to identify where they’ve gone, where they are and where they need to go — this month enhances all those things. Depending on who it is and their mentality of a recognition of a few great people, this is a month to look at everyone, even if you haven’t read about them in the history book.”last_img read more

Commission grants USC control of Coliseum

first_imgFollowing eight months of negotiations, USC obtained day-to-day control of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in a vote by the Coliseum Commission on Monday.The stadium’s nine-member governing body, represented by officials from the state, county, and city, voted 8-1 to surrender control of the facility, along with the adjacent L.A. Sports Arena to the university for at least 20 years. The sole dissenting vote was cast by Los Angeles City Councilmember Bernard Parks, who has long opposed the amended lease as currently drafted.The lease has five renewal options beyond the initial 20 years that would allow USC to control the publicly owned stadium through 2054, although the commission will continue to oversee both facilities.“We look forward to restoring the Coliseum to its former glory and ensuring its viability for many generations to come,” said Thomas Sayles, USC’s senior vice president for university relations, in a statement. “We believe this agreement will once again make the Coliseum a proud landmark and gathering place for all Angelenos.”USC will be tasked with event scheduling, along with funding various improvements and restorations that are expected to total approximately $70 million. As a result, the university will be given control over revenue and will be allowed to negotiate the sale of the naming rights to the Coliseum.USC’s football team has been a tenant at the stadium since the Coliseum’s opening in May 1923.In June 2011, the commission acknowledged it would be unable to make nearly $60 million in necessary renovations to the Coliseum, breaking the terms of the original lease with USC signed in 2008, which led the university to seek day-to-day management of the venue and the neighboring Sports Arena.Negotiations began in September, and a terms sheet was released in January that outlined several modifications to the original lease.last_img read more
