Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 16 maggio 2019

Alabama Virtual Academy at Eufaula City Schools (ALVA-ECS), an online public-school serving students in grades K-12 throughout the state, will celebrate the Class of 2019 during an in-person commencement ceremony on Thursday, May 16th. The ceremony will take place at the Montgomery Marriott Prattville Hotel and Conference Center in Prattville.Many assume that attending an online public school like ALVA means that students miss out on “real” high school experiences, but this in-person graduation proves quite the opposite.
This year, ALVA will graduate almost three dozen students; about 60% of whom are graduating with honors. Student Robert Blum is one of them. He is this year’s valedictorian who has earned several noteworthy honors such as the President’s Endowed Scholarship at Texas A&M University, National Merit Recognition, and the University of Alabama in Huntsville’s Charger Distinction Scholarship.Collectively, the Class of 2019 reports it has been offered more than $200,000 in scholarships and have been accepted to trade schools, colleges and universities across the country, including: Wallace Community College, Maine College of Art, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Shelton State Community College, Chattahoochee Valley Community College, Full Sail University, Troy University, Auburn University at Montgomery, University of Texas at Arlington, University of Montevallo, University of Washington, University of Florida, and Texas A&M University.Students enroll in ALVA for a number of reasons—some are looking to escape bullying, some may have fallen academically off track, and others are looking for an alternative to the traditional brick-and-mortar classroom setting. ALVA students access a robust online curriculum in the core subjects of math, science, English language arts, history, art and music as well as a host of electives. These live virtual classes are taught by Alabama certified teachers.

Nissoli: Una settimana tra i giovani italiani che vivono in Usa

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 13 febbraio 2017

nissoliLa scorsa settimana, l’on. Nissoli ha incontrato molti giovani di varie Comunità italiane presenti in Usa. In particolare, l’on. Nissoli si è recata a Seattle e all’Università dell’Alabama. A Seattle, assieme al Console onorario Franco Tesorieri, ha incontrato i giovani ricercatori italiani che lavorano nel polo tecnologico della zona. “Una Comunità – ha detto l’on. Nissoli – vivace e che potrebbe dare tanto all’Italia, a cominciare da quei giovani che hanno lasciato la terra d’origine per fare un’ esperienza all’avanguardia nella terra dell’information technology, qui in Usa”. Invece, all’Università dell’Alabama, l’on. Nissoli, parlando delle politiche per gli italiani all’estero, ha detto: “Voglio realizzare il sogno di una Italia che consideri gli italiani all’estero cittadini a tutti gli effetti e sto lavorando per questo, con fatica ma senza perdermi d’animo, a cominciare dalla battaglia per il riacquisto della cittadinanza per chi, andato all’estero, l’ha perduta”. Invece, per quanto concerne il Progetto “Cervelli in Viaggio”, promosso da Massimo Veccia,che ha concluso, questa settimana, la sua fase americana a New York, l’on. Nissoli ha ricordato che tale Progetto formativo “aiuta i giovani ad entrare preparati sia nel mondo dell’impresa che si affaccia ed opera nei contesti internazionali sia ad apportare in contesti produttivi italiani un bagaglio di best practice che può essere utile per il miglioramento dell’efficacia e dell’efficienza delle strutture aziendali”. “E’ stata una settimana intensa di incontri – ha riassunto l’on. Nissoli – con giovani pieni di speranza e di amore per l’Italia; momenti belli di umanità e politica che mi danno la forza di lavorare con ancora più convinzione per il mio Paese, il Paese che noi tutti italiani all’estero portiamo sempre nel cuore, in qualsiasi contesto.” (foto: nissoli)

England, (PRNewswire) Southeast Alabama Medical Center has gone live with Clinical Solutions’ US version of IntefleCS Contact Centre. The solution will transform how callers’ needs are determined, enabling staff nurses to better handle the centre’s 18,000 calls per month and prioritise urgent needs more efficiently.
The nurse triage module and readmission management application will also enable staff at the centre to accurately capture call volumes, specifically on follow-up calls which will be created as a separate call type – something that has not been done before.Melanie McKnight, division director of registration services at Southeast Alabama Medical Center, says, “By comparison to other products on the market, Clinical Solutions offers the best fit for our needs. The system allows users to easily manage their own clinical content, including; surveys, nursing assessments and custom guidelines, making them more responsive to the needs of individual clients. Implementing the solution has also enabled us to amend our existing custom guidelines, something we were not able to do previously and this will save us critical hours.
Darin Southard, Vice President of Clinical Solutions, says, “Our US IntefleCS solution enables organisations like Southeast Alabama to manage all aspects of their clinical call centre, not just their telephone triage service. This will be a key driver for efficiency savings in the long-term.” For further information visit Clinical Solutions at http://www.clinicalsolutions.com.

Alabama: Making the Wrong Kind of History

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 29 settembre 2011

"Immigrant Family" (bronze, 2007) by...

Image via Wikipedia

Washington, D.C. , A federal judge in Alabama refused to block the toughest provisions of Alabama’s extreme immigration law, H.B. 56 – the harshest in the nation. The sections that the judge allowed to proceed include: Making it a state crime for an undocumented immigrant to not carry documents required by federal law, requiring police to make a reasonable attempt to determine immigration status for anyone they stop, detain, or arrest when they “reasonably suspect” the individual is illegally in the country, making it a felony for an undocumented immigrant to do business with the state – for instance obtaining water service — and requiring Alabama public school officials to determine if enrolling children were born outside the United States or are children of undocumented immigrants.The following is a statement by Ali Noorani, Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum: “Just this month the Southern Poverty Law Center gave the state of Alabama an “A” in teaching its children about civil rights history – a history the state of Alabama played a notorious role in shaping. Well, today, the state of Alabama keeps making history in all the wrong ways. U.S. District Judge Sharon Blackburn’s ruling is a sad day in our nation’s history. For the court to allow sections of a law to go into effect in Alabama when they have been found unconstitutional elsewhere is puzzling. This ill-conceived and inhumane law will burden local police departments with responsibilities that belong to the federal government and it will prove to be extremely costly to enforce, and extremely costly to the reputation of Alabama. It will undermine public safety while being a direct affront to our constitutional values. Families will be under siege, parents will be afraid to send their children to school, and workers will be afraid to report to their jobs. In the United States of America, no one should have to be afraid to walk down the street because of the color of their skin. This law is tramples on the civil rights of ALL Alabamans. Let’s not forget who is at fault here: Governor Robert Bentley signed the bill passed by Republican extremists that rule the Alabama legislature. The deficit of leadership in the U.S. Congress and their inaction on immigration reform has let the states run amok with proposals that attack our American values of fairness and equal treatment. Today’s ruling on this stringent immigration law should be a wake-up call for Congress to finally fix the immigration system.
