PUSD’s grant is one of 40 totaling $244 million announced today by the California Department of Education (See CDE release below).PUSD, Pasadena Chamber of Commerce, Pasadena City College (PCC), Foothill Workforce Investment Board (FWIB), Pasadena Educational Foundation (PEF), and the city of Pasadena have formalized a partnership to prepare students for college and careers, successfully transition to postsecondary education, and effectively link them to careers in high wage, high need industries. This local consortium, LINC (Linking Industry for NextGen Careers) Pasadena, builds capacity and coherently links existing local and regional structures to sustain PUSD and PCC pathways to careers by establishing a strong local intermediary structure. It also strengthens and expands K-12 Pathways not currently linked to regional consortia and helps recruit and retain students. The goal is to ensure all students have the skills, attributes and experiences that will prepare them for college, careers and life.LINC Pasadena builds upon the statewide support structure PUSD has been a part of since its selection in 2009 as one of nine Linked Learning Districts in California. The secondary program has grown to serve 1871 students in grades 9-12 within ten Pathways at all six high schools, including two alternative education sites. Four of the ten PUSD Pathways are part of two large regional California Career Pathways Trust consortia grants focusing on information and communication technology led by PCC and advanced manufacturing led by Long Beach Community College. This grant expands the six innovative career pathway programs focused on the health care industry, legal careers, business and entrepreneurship, culinary arts and hospitality, and other creative industries supporting the community’s workforce development needs that do not yet benefit from the systematic linkage to regional and local industry resources.For more information, visit www.pusd.us/pages/PasadenaUSD.last_img read more

first_imgFBI Charlotte(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — The body of abducted 13-year-old Hania Aguilar was believed to be recovered this week in North Carolina but the search for answers is far from over.“We have to find out how she died and who did this to her,” Andy de la Rocha of the FBI said in a statement Wednesday. “We have to bring the person responsible to justice.”A body believed to be Hania, who was kidnapped in Lumberton at the beginning of the month, was found in a body of water in Robeson County on Tuesday, authorities announced Wednesday.Investigative leads had prompted authorities to search that area for the missing girl, according to the FBI.But the FBI is now asking the public for tips on when and how the body was left there.Anyone with surveillance cameras near Wire Grass Road in Robeson County is asked to call the tip line at 910-272-5871.Authorities do not have a person of interest, according to the FBI.Hania was kidnapped outside her home at the Rosewood Mobile Home Park in Lumberton, North Carolina, on the morning of Nov. 5.She had taken the keys to her aunt’s SUV to start the car before school when a man dressed in all black with a yellow bandanna over his face forced her in the car and drove away, police said. The stolen SUV was found three days later in Lumberton.Lumberton Police Chief Michael McNeill said he was “devastated” to make the “heart-wrenching” announcement Wednesday that the recovered body was believed to be Hania’s.“I wish we had a different outcome for Hania’s family,” he said at a Wednesday news conference.An autopsy will determine her cause of death, the chief said.McNeill did not discuss the condition of the body.The state medical examiner’s preliminary tests indicated the body is Hania but final confirmation will be made through dental records, McNeill added.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

SOUTHCOM is coordinating with Project Medishare to also help take care of the land-based logistic side of the ship’s operations.” Excellent help to people with fewer resources and a chance to get healthcare from USNS.

These opportunities for low-resource people to receive healthcare are a blessing. I hope all the countries could join in, that way we could have more support in everything, in security, in healthcare, education, employment opportunities and Countries without Wars, we want peace love for all. Sending from Peru Good going, don’t stop. I hope the world unites like this.

It is uniquely capable of providing health services support as an element of humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, and has been configured to provide a range of services at sea and ashore. Michael Kelley, Executive Director of Strategic Operations at the University of Miami Health Systems, one of the NGOs participating in Continuing Promise 2015, said, “the University of Miami has a great working relationship with the military, including training the forward surgical units for the Army and the other operations. It’s important for us to try to support the military in any way we can.” U.S. Navy Captain Christine Sears, Commanding Officer of the Medical Treatment Facility onboard the Comfort detailed some of the projects that will take place on the mission. “We’re bringing a full complement of our crew many of whom are trained in specific pediatric areas in addition one of our NGO partners, Operation Smile, is bringing a very large contingent to certain countries. Other NGO partners, such as the University of California San Diego Pre-Dental Society, are bringing a very specific cadre for children in addition to our staff.” He explained that they had been heavily involved in Haiti’s post-earthquake recovery. “During that time, we handled the evacuations to the Comfort immediately following the earthquake there, so we became very interested in working with SOUTHCOM; we established a Memorandum of Understanding to work together on medical missions throughout the region.” During a press conference at the only U.S. port of call at the Port of Miami, U.S. Navy Captain Sam Hancock, Mission Commander for Continuing Promise 2015, stated that of the 1,000 members on board, several of the staff have already participated in previous Continuing Promise missions. “The last time we participated in the mission was in 2011, and a number of the staff that participated in the exercise then is here today for Continuing Promise 2015.” “These anticipated activities will further enhance the significant impact that the Continuing Promise Mission has had in the region in the past. We look forward to working together with our Central American, South American, and Caribbean partner nations and our non-governmental and private volunteer organization partners to conduct civil military operations including humanitarian civic assistance, foreign disaster relief, and Subject Matter Expert Exchanges as we go throughout our entire deployment,” he concluded.
