BCTF wants a mediator brought to the bargaining table

first_img“B.C. teachers have moved significantly at the bargaining table to bring the two sides closer together, but we have not seen similar efforts from Christy Clark’s government,” BCTF President, Jim Iker said. “If Christy Clark agrees to mediation and allows government negotiators to come enter that process with a more open mind, we can get a deal.”The BCTF’s framework for the settlement currently on the table is based on a 5 year term, which includes an 8 per cent salary increase and signing bonus, a no concessions agreement, a $225,000,000 annual workload fund, addressing issues of class size, compensation and staffing, and an additional $225,000,000 retroactive grievances fund over the life of the collective agreement, used to address other working conditions like preparation time and TTOC compensation improvements, as well as improvements to health benefits.Fassbender says the combined $450,000,000 tax payer price tag is an unacceptable demand and also says once everything is calculated, the bill spikes into the billion dollar range.- Advertisement -“When we finally got the full response from the BCTF on Wednesday, and when we looked at the numbers they filled in the blanks that they didn’t have there before, it is unaffordable,” Fassbener said. “It is well in the $2,000,000,000 range, that is not affordable for the tax payers of British Columbia.”As the 2 sides seem to drift further apart, Fassbender has yet to say yes or no to the prospects of a mediator.last_img read more


first_imgPrincipal Fiona Temple helps road-test the new Toshiba Chromebooks.A Donegal secondary school is to undertake a unique project in the new school year.Mulroy College in Milford is to take part in the Chromebook 2 rollout plan.The plan will see transition year students use the last technology to interact with wi-fi in the school. After the implementation of enterprise Wi-Fi into the school, Ciaran Cunningham, Head of IT for Donegal E.T.B., investigated a number of mobile device solutions to best complement the newly installed Wi-Fi infrastructure.Ciaran said “We considered options including functionality, usability in the classroom, value for money, mobile device management etc. As we manage Google Apps for Education for both staff and students, applications such as Classroom, Drive and Gmail were all a priority in any decision we made.”Once their choices had been narrowed down to Chromebook products, Ciaran was introduced to Paul McEvoy at Baker Security & Networks, who highlighted Toshiba’s Chromebook 2 as the most well-suited solution for school.Fiona Temple, Principal of Mulroy College said “We wanted to fully integrate IT into their curriculum, rather than just teaching IT as a subject, and we wanted to explore the possibility of teaching and learning through Chromebooks as we felt they were more adaptable to the needs of both teachers and learners.” Damien Farrell, Toshiba Reseller Channel Manger for Ireland said “Through Toshiba’s Partner Programme, Baker Networks were able to involve the manufacturer at a very early stage. Throughout the process, our aim was to demonstrate a high level of service, product quality and flexibility in approaching this project and we strived to provide peace of mind for both Mulroy College and Donegal E.T.B. It is our hope that this is the first of many projects where Toshiba can provide its expertise as a trusted advisor to both partner and end user.”Principal Ms Temple added “The incoming Transition Year students are extremely excited to start the new academic year with their new Chromebooks, and we can’t wait to see how it will help in delivering the curriculum to our students in the years to come.“We really appreciated all the work Ciaran in the E.T.B. and Paul McEvoy in B.S.N. have done for us.”Mulroy College had put together a small team of teachers to oversee the project and proposed to introduce the new Chromebooks to their Transition Year students commencing in September 2015.DONEGAL SCHOOL BOOKS IN FOR THE ‘CHROME’ TREATMENT! was last modified: August 15th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Atlético proved they can win La Liga and Champions League with Real thrashing

first_img Did Mahrez just accidentally reveal Fernandinho is leaving Man City this summer? SORRY Every Championship club’s best signing of the decade, including Taarabt and Dack The Colchoneros’ 4-2 hammering of their city rivals in the UEFA Super Cup was a sign that they are capable of meeting those heady new expectations. There is always pressure when it comes to Atlético v Real, but this time it felt different.In the build up to the game, several of Spain’s sporting media outlets went to great lengths to point out that Madrid’s noisy neighbours had made just as much noise as the 13-time European champions in the transfer market this summer. Their €124million spend in the current window is almost identical to that of Florentino Pérez.“Atlético’s squad is worth more than Madrid’s for the first time in history,” Marca wrote as if to make a point, breaking down the value of the players in painstaking detail as well as the two opposing coaches according to the current market. Even the ever cautious Diego Simeone admitted ahead of the game that Atleti “have to improve on what we did last season” and that “the demands placed on us are based on the squad we’re building”.

Pouncing upon an error by a lethargic Raphael Varane, his smart cross towards the penalty spot picked out Saúl for a peach of a finish that put Atlético back in front and broke Madrid’s resistance.And Vitolo, who had come on for Rodri with normal time running down and Simeone pushing to put the game to bed, allowed Koke to move into the middle to take advantage of the withdrawal of Madrid’s key defensive midfielder Casemiro, as well as adding pace and trickery to stretch Madrid’s tiring back four. When the teams were announced before kick-off in Tallinn the quality of that new squad was really driven home. In the starting 11 were several players among the best in the world in their positions: Jan Oblak, Diego Godín, Koke, Saúl Ñíguez, Diego Costa and Antoine Griezmann. So too were promising young talents Rodri (brought home this summer from Villarreal after an excellent season in Spain’s top flight) and World Cup winner Thomas Lemar (brought in at a club-record fee of €70 million euros).But it was the bench that was most striking. Filipe Luis, José Maria Giménez, Thomas Partey, Gelson Martins, Vitolo and Ángel Correa all started the match on the bench. All are good enough for a place in any squad competing for major trophies. 5 gameday Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade predicted Atletico Madrid players celebrate winning the European Super Cup against Real Madrid. This is the real difference between the current Atlético and the ones of years gone by. In the past Simeone’s sides have relied on a solid base group of 11-14 top class players, but have often struggled with meeting the demands of rotation or changing things mid-game from the bench. No longer: in Tallinn he unleashed his new toys to staggering effect – and he didn’t even use them all.Though the Colchoneros started perfectly with a vintage Costa goal putting them ahead in the opening minutes, they faded and were 2-1 behind with just over an hour gone, spending more and more time in their own half. Typical Atlético – and in particular, typical Atlético against Real in Europe, it seemed.Then the potential of their options from the bench was put into practice for the first time. Correa, replacing Griezmann, played a blinder – his best game in an Atlético shirt, taking into account the occasion and the unfavourable scoreline. Not only did the Argentine wriggle to the by-line and provide the cut-back for Costa’s important equalizer, he also constantly held up the ball, read where the space was with perfection and picked out team-mates time after time, outclassing Griezmann who did nothing before being hooked. New Atletico Madrid star Gelson Martins could only make the bench for the UEFA Super Cup. It may only be a European Super Cup, not La Liga or the Champions League, but had Atlético lost in Estonia, the backlash going into their difficult opening game of the La Liga season against Valencia would have been significant. All that money, only to crumble against Real Madrid when the pressure is really on, the same way they always do? Imagine.Instead, Simeone and Atleti prepare to kick off the league season on Monday with clear justification for their outlay this summer, not to mention the perfect confidence boost that beating city rivals and reigning European champions in such a convincing manner provides. “With the squad we have, if everyone is right, clearly we’ll have the chance to win trophies,” a relaxed Simeone was able to say in the post-match press conference. He knows how far they can go. silverware Tottenham v Brighton LIVE: talkSPORT commentary and team news for Boxing Day opener ALTERED possible standings Atlético Madrid have long been a thorn in the side of Barcelona and Real Madrid, but after matching both in transfer spending this summer, they can no longer claim to be the plucky underdogs.It’s time for Diego Simeone to step up and deliver another league title, or the Champions League that has slipped from between their fingers twice before. possible standings He may have been a winner on the night but Antoine Griezmann wasn’t quite at his brilliant best. gameday cracker Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update smart causal 5 England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT 5 revealed impact highlights Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos scores against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup. 5 Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone celebrates his side’s win. changes At one point the winger left Dani Carvajal stumbling like a drunk with his quick feet – the kind of humiliation Atleti are usually on the receiving end in this fixture – and he would eventually pick up the assist for his team’s fourth, scored by Koke from the central position Vitolo’s entrance had allowed him to move into. It was the icing on the cake that certified the night as one of Atlético dominance, and one where their new versatility took effect.This was clearly a win made by the depth and quality of Atlético’s squad – other new arrivals like striker Nikola Kalinic and attacking full-back Santiago Arias didn’t even play. Perhaps for the first time ever, that depth overshadowed Real Madrid’s and exposed their inability to turn the tide with their own squad – the use of Sergio Ramos as an auxiliary striker alongside youngster Borja Mayoral in the dying minutes a telling sign of their lack of options at centre-forward.

Half-time: Brentford 1 MK Dons 0

first_imgLasse Vibe’s sixth goal of the season put Brentford ahead at the break in Dean Smith’s first game in charge.The new head coach saw his initial plans derailed slightly when Alan McCormack pulled out in the warm-up and Sergi Canos came in for only the second start of his loan spell from Liverpool.And it took the Bees a little time to settle, with Josh Murphy firing wide from an angle and Dean Bowditch shooting straight at home keeper David Button.But on 20 minutes, Brentford showed Smith their counter-attacking potential with a wonderfully worked goal.Alan Judge began the move with a neat turn and sprint from halfway before releasing Jake Bidwell, whose cross was headed home by Vibe.After that, the Bees dominated and should have added to their lead before half-time.Judge wasted a good one-on-one chance as Dons keeper David Martin saved and he also struck the bar with a free-kick, while Antony Kay cleared Konstantin Kerschbaumer’s follow-up off the line.And on 33 minutes, a ball dropped to Canos, as the Dons looked decidedly uneasy at the back, but he too hit the woodwork.Brentford: Button; Yennaris, Tarkowski, O’Connell, Bidwell; Kerschbaumer, Diagouraga; Woods, Canos, Judge; Vibe.Subs: Bonham, Barbet, McEachran, Saunders, Gogia, Jota, Hofmann.MK Dons: Martin; Spence, McFadzean, Kay, Lewington; Potter, Poyet; Baker, Bowditch, Murphy; Maynard.Subs: Cropper, Hodson, Benavente, Carruthers, Powell, Hall, Gallagher.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Tottenham out after Juve’s Wembley comeback

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesTottenham 1 Juventus 2(Juventus won 4-3 on aggregate)A stunning comeback by Juventus at Wembley knocked Tottenham out of the Champions League.After a 2-2 draw in the first leg in Turin, Spurs knew their away goals meant a clean sheet would guarantee them a place in the quarter-finals.And they found themselves in an even stronger position by half-time of the second leg courtesy of Son Heung-min’s goal six minutes before the interval.Son’s scuffed effort following Kieran Trippier’s ball across the face of goal was enough to put Spurs ahead and was a just reward for their first-half dominance.Embed from Getty ImagesBut the Italian side hit back by scoring twice in the space of three minutes midway through the second half.Gonzalo Higuaín netted from close range and then set up Paulo Dybala, whose goal proved to be decisive.Harry Kane headed against the post in the 90th minute as Tottenham tried in vain to find an equaliser.Tottenham: Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dier (Lamela 74), Dembele, Eriksen, Alli (Llorenta 86), Son, Kane.Subs not used: Vorm, Rose, Wanyama, Lucas, Sissoko.

Oldest Shrimp Looks Shrimpy

first_imgPhysOrg shows a picture of a fossil shrimp found in Oklahoma next to a live shrimp.  They look identical, yet the article claims the fossil is 360 million years old – the oldest known decapod (a group containing shrimp, crabs, and lobsters).  The fossil shrimp even has fine preservation of the muscles of its tail, “extremely rare in fossils.”  The article claims it was preserved so well because it landed on the seafloor in acidic water with low oxygen, and then was “buried rapidly.”  As to what this find signifies, “The fossil is a very important step in unraveling the evolution of decapods,” one of the scientists from Kent State said.  “However, more finds are necessary.”Calling this complex animal an “important step in unraveling the evolution of decapods” is like finding a complete building, with pipes, electricity, structural steel, and all the interior and exterior furnishings, and calling it an important step in unraveling the evolution of buildings, then claiming that more finds are necessary to unravel the complete story.  What’s unraveling here is the evolutionary story itself.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
