Dr. Haas is also the chairwoman and a past president of the William Penn Foundation.“As a medical doctor, Janet Haas is dedicated to improving the lives of young children across the commonwealth,” said Governor Wolf. “The commission will benefit from her tremendous experience working with business leaders as we work to build bipartisan support for increasing our commitment to early learning.”Dr. Haas practices palliative medicine at the Abramson Cancer Center of Pennsylvania Hospital, part of the University of Pennsylvania Health System. She is board-certified in Rehabilitation Medicine and has cared for brain-injured patients at Temple University and Moss Rehabilitation Hospital.Investing in early education is a priority for Governor Wolf. In the 2018-19 budget, the governor is proposing to invest an additional $25 million in state funding, to be matched by $5 million in federal funding, to expand access to high-quality child care, as well as an increase of $40 million for high-quality early childhood education which would allow nearly 4,400 children to enroll in a program.Together with $90 million in funding increases secured over the past three years, this additional investment will more than double the funding for Pre-K Counts programs since 2014-15, and increases funding for Head Start Supplemental Assistance by 64 percent.“There is nothing more important than high-quality education. It unlocks doors to opportunities and to more successful futures,” said Janet Haas, MD, Board Chair of the William Penn Foundation. “I’m pleased to serve with Governor Wolf as Co-Chair of the Early Learning Investment Committee and thank him for his unwavering commitment to expanding early learning opportunities for children in Pennsylvania. I look forward to working with the Commission as we strive to move Pennsylvania closer to the day when every child in our state has access to the high-quality early childhood education he or she deserves.”The Pennsylvania Early Learning Investment Commission is a network of 60 senior business leaders from across Pennsylvania representing 26 counties and nearly every major industry. Commissioners are appointed by the governor to serve as advocates building awareness and support for increased public investments in early learning.Created in 2008 through an executive order signed by Governor Ed Rendell, the commission has helped Pennsylvania become a national leader for engaging business leaders on the issue of early learning.“Janet’s appointment as Honorary Co-Chair of the Commission is testament to her commitment and leadership on this and many important economic and community issues,” said Jack Brennan, Chairman Emeritus and Senior Advisor, Vanguard Group. “By leading the Pennsylvania Early Learning Investment Commission with the Governor, she will effectively and tenaciously work to ensure that Pennsylvania continues to grow its commitment to young children today to ensure a thriving and prosperous future for the Commonwealth.”last_img read more

DISASTROUS! – West Indies collapse leaves Test wide open

first_imgNewsSports DISASTROUS! – West Indies collapse leaves Test wide open by: – April 11, 2012 Sharing is caring! Share Share Australia’s Peter Siddle (left) celebrates after West Indies’ batsman Darren Bravo was caught behind for 32 runs off his bowling during the second innings on the fourth day of their first cricket Test match in Bridgetown, Barbados, yesterday. (Photo: AP)BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) — West Indies lost the plot in a disastrous 25-minute period before tea on the fourth day here yesterday, to leave the opening Test against Australia teetering on a knife’s edge heading into today’s final day at Kensington Oval.Left to negotiate a tricky period after Australia declared their first innings at 406 for nine, 53 minutes after lunch, West Indies capitulated in the space of 26 balls to stumble to tea at four runs for three wickets.Seamer Ben Hilfenhaus, who finished with three for 17, took all three scalps without conceding a run, off just 14 balls.West Indies made somewhat of a recovery to reach the close on 71 for five, just 114 runs ahead, setting up the final day for a fascinating climax.Narsingh Deonarine, recalled for this match after two years out of the side, will carry the Windies hopes after ending the day unbeaten on 20.He has so far faced 94 balls in an innings that has consumed 134 minutes, and has not included a boundary.Wicketkeeper/batsman Carlton Baugh was with him on two.Deonarine had earlier combined with elegant left-hander Darren Bravo to repair the damage after tea, adding an even 50 for the fifth wicket.Bravo, unflappable in his approach, top-scored with 32 before edging a delivery of little merit behind, off fast bowler Peter Siddle, 17 minutes before the close.He faced 78 balls in 145 minutes, and counted three fours.Taking a lead of 43 following Australia’s declaration, the Windies failed to capitalise.Barath played all over and around one and was bowled off-stump for two with the third ball of the third over of the innings and two balls later, opener Kraigg Brathwaite went caught behind without scoring, wafting at a wide ball in a rare moment of indiscretion.Kirk Edwards, who survived a scare when Ricky Ponting almost took him at second slip off a low, sharp chance, then walked across his wicket and was palpably lbw for one, though he referred the decision.Veteran left-hander Shiv Chanderpaul joined Bravo in an attempt to stop the haemorrhaging, but the rescue effort failed after just 13 runs, when Chanderpaul edged one behind off pacer Ryan Harris for 12.Bravo and Deonarine set about solving the crisis and appeared set to carry the Windies to the close without further loss when a lapse in concentration saw Bravo flirt with a Siddle delivery.Earlier, West Indies made quick inroads into Australia’s batting in the morning session, but a stubborn lastwicket stand of 77 between Ryan Harris and Nathan Lyon frustrated them and undermined their advantage.Harris finished unbeaten on 68, his maiden Test half-century which included seven fours and spanned 123 balls and 209 minutes, while Lyon made a Test-best 40 with six fours off 89 balls in 104 minutes.Fast bowler Kemar Roach, who finished with three for 72 overall, snared two for 16 from 12 overs in the pre-lunch session, while Fidel Edwards (2-92) took two for 43 from a 13-over spell. Darren Sammy took two for 65.With the Aussies resuming the day on 248 for five in pursuit of the hosts’ 449 for nine declared, West Indies wasted little time in making the early breakthrough when Mike Hussey edged a drive at Roach in the day’s fourth over to be caught behind by Baugh, after adding just one to his overnight 47 with the Aussies on 249 for six.In the next over with one run added, Peter Siddle fended a short ball from Edwards to Kirk Edwards at gully to fall without scoring, while Matthew Wade’s 97-ball sojourn over 28 ended when Darren Bravo gobbled up an edge at second slip, also off Edwards, as Australia slipped to 285 for eight.However, Harris posted 44 for the ninth wicket with Ben Hilfenhaus, who scored a lively 24 from 29 balls with five fours before his middle stump was removed by Roach.

NHL free agency 2019: Jordan Binnington, Danton Heinen, Jacob Trouba among 40 to file for salary arbitration

first_imgNHL contract arbitration hearings are approaching, and 5 p.m. ET Friday was the deadline for players to file for them. Forty restricted free agents from 20 teams elected to have their contract disputes handled by a third party. Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington, who was instrumental in the team’s midseason turnaround and subsequent Stanley Cup championship, was among the top players to enter arbitration. He earned first-team all-rookie honors and was a finalist for the Calder Trophy despite playing in just 32 regular season games last season. He ended up signing a two-year, $8.8 million deal before his hearing. NHL FREE AGENCY 2019: Complete list of all 31 teams’ UFAs, RFAsBruins forward Danton Heinen — who faced Binnington in this year’s Stanley Cup Final, Flames center Sam Bennett and Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba, who joined New York via trade from Winnipeg on June 17, also scheduled meetings in Toronto.The Blues and Flames, with four each, had the most players file for arbitration. St. Louis will look to settle with Binnington, forwards Zach Sanford and Oskar Sundqvist and defenseman Joel Edmundson. Calgary is looking for a settlement with goalie David Rittich, who would back up newly acquired Cam Talbot.  MORE: Blue Jackets among teams that have considered offer sheet for MarnerArbitration hearings will begin toward the end of July. While most disputes will end up settled before hearings take place, any negotiation that reaches arbitration must have a decision from the arbitrator no more than 48 hours after the meeting. The team then has the option to accept or decline the salary that the arbitrator sets. If the salary is declined, the player can then declare himself an unrestricted free agent.Below is a list of all the restricted free agents to file for salary arbitration.TeamPlayerPositionStatusAnaheim DucksChase De LeoCSigned after filing: one year, $750,000Boston BruinsDanton HeinenCSigned after filing: two years, $5.6 millionBuffalo SabresRemi ElieLWSigned after filing: one year, $700,000Buffalo SabresJake McCabeDSigned after filing: two years, $5.7 millionBuffalo SabresEvan RodriguesLWAwarded: one year, $2 millionBuffalo SabresLinus UllmarkGSigned after filing: one year, $1.325 millionCalgary FlamesSam BennettCSigned after filing: two years, $5.1 millionCalgary FlamesRyan LombergLWSigned after filing: one year, $700,000Calgary FlamesDavid RittichGSigned after filing: two years, $5.5 millionCalgary FlamesRinat ValievDSigned after filing: one year, $700,000Carolina HurricanesAnton ForsbergGArbitration hearing scheduled for Aug. 4Carolina HurricanesBrock McGinnLWSigned after filing: two years, $4.2 millionColorado AvalancheJ.T.
