Education consultant’s advice for teachers: ‘Be creative’

Dr. Marck Abraham won’t be returning as principal at McKinley High this year, instead he’s focusing on helping educators, parents and students as a consultant

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Dr. Marck Abraham was direct when asked what’s needed for teachers, students and parents to succeed this school year. 

“Teachers step your game up, administrators step your game up, because this is an opportunity of a lifetime,” he said.

Abraham describes himself as a transformational leader. He is now an education consultant and formed MEA Consultants.

“Teachers must be creative,” he said. “There has to be a high level of engagement,” and concern for each student.

Abraham says remote learning can offer exciting opportunities for educators. 

“Instead of teaching them about the circumference of a building actually go downtown and take a video of the building,” Abraham said. “Things that you would never have an opportunity to do because of budget

These 3 “Strong Buy” Retail Stocks Look Compelling, Say Analysts

One thing is for sure, 2020 threw the world into a tailspin. The spread of COVID-19 devastated the economy, and took investors on a rollercoaster ride that featured massive amounts of volatility packed into a span of only a few months. Investors saw stocks take a fast and frightening nose dive, only to be followed up by a fierce V-shaped rebound. Against this backdrop, U.S. 10-year and 30-year bond yields plummeted to all-time lows and unemployment levels clocked in at alarming highs. Still, despite all of the chaos, a select few retail names have stolen the show, delivering applause-worthy performances. With this in mind, we used TipRanks’ database to identify three retail stocks that have earned a “Strong Buy” consensus rating from the analyst community. Let’s take a look. Carter’s (CRI) First in line is Carter’s, a company whose

Unilever invests in blue light exposure consumer education and formulates protective beauty products

According to Unilever, 60% of people now spend more than six hours a day in front of a digital device which, when spread across five working days, equated to the same impact on the skin as spending 25 minutes in midday sun without protection. And a consumer study conducted in August by the beauty and personal care major found 65% of consumers were unaware of the effect blue light could have on their skin.

Unilever said it was therefore on a mission to help people ‘beat the screen blues’ by raising awareness of the negative impact blue light has on skin.

More brand education will build awareness on blue light exposure risks

“Blue light is one of many external aggressors which can have a negative impact on the health of our skin,”​ said Samantha Tucker-Samaras, global vice president of science & technology for beauty and personal care at

The move by the Deltic Group, which runs 53 clubs and late-night bars across the UK, will mean losing 10 per cent of its 4,000 employees.

Chief executive Peter Marks warned more redundancies could follow unless the Government provides urgent support. ‘There will be far more job losses if we don’t get something material in the next six weeks,’ he added. ‘As an industry, we won’t get through November.’

Daktronics to cut 100 jobs, net sales fall millions behind in Q1 for South Dakota-based company

South Dakota-based Daktronics is cutting about 100 jobs as the company anticipates financial setbacks created by the coronavirus pandemic, according to a Friday statement from the company.

The Brookings-based maker of electronic displays and billboards reported its net sales, net income and cash generated by operations for the quarter were all down millions of dollars year-over-year, according to financials released last week.

Daktronics was able to remain profitable in the short-term, but that was with temporary measures, spokeswoman Staci Mergenthal said in an emailed statement.

“We now foresee a more prolonged downturn and we felt a longer-term solution was necessary,” Mergenthal said.

Financial strain hasn’t stopped Daktronics from landing some sizable contracts, including installing a suite of video displays on a Major League Soccer stadium planned for Austin, Texas.

But even with work on the Austin stadium, Daktronics still reported decreasing sales for the first quarter of its

Thai students seeking reforms debate education minister

Round 2 of a dialogue between Thailand’s education minister and high school students seeking radical reforms has taken place with a robust though mostly polite exchange of views but no resolution

BANGKOK — Round 2 of a dialogue between Thailand’s education minister and high school students seeking radical reforms took place Saturday, with a robust though mostly polite exchange of views but no resolution.

What had been billed by the students as a debate with Education Minister Nataphol Teepsuwan was a rare example of an open conversation between a senior politician and the younger generation that is not seen much in Thai society.

The students, who have dubbed their group Bad Students in self-mocking humor, are demanding an end to harassment for their activities, abolition of outmoded draconian regulations and total reform of the educational system.

Are there enough school nurses in Alabama to deal with coronavirus?

As Alabama schools reopen, medical experts say it’s a matter of when, not if, before students and staff bring COVID-19 into schools.

The first handful of systems just began to reopen last week. Already, five students at Saraland High School were sent home for a 14-day isolation after coming in contact with someone who had the virus on the first day of school.

There have been outbreaks and closures as students returned to school in Tennessee, Mississippi and Georgia.

In Alabama, every school that opens for students must have a plan in place to isolate students or staff showing symptoms and also to track down who the student or staff may have come into “close contact” with while at school.

Those duties, according to the Alabama Department of Public Health, fall to the school nurse.

That’s on top of regular school nurse duties in a given day.

But there’s a

The ‘mighty mice’ that went to space could help protect astronauts’ muscles and bones

 (CNN) — Genetically enhanced “mighty mice” that were part of a heath experiment on the International Space Station have shown that blocking a molecular signaling pathway can protect against muscle and bone density loss in the absence of gravity.

The new study also revealed this treatment promoted the recovery of muscle and bone mass once the mice returned to Earth.

The results are promising to researchers because they could be used to develop therapies that might help astronauts mitigate the muscle and bone loss they experience during long-term spaceflight.

Targeting this pathway could also be used to help people on Earth who experience muscle and bone loss due to various conditions such as muscular dystrophy, osteoporosis and diseases that cause muscle wasting like cancer, heart disease, sepsis and AIDS.

The study published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. NASA astronauts Drew Morgan, Christina Koch and
