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

In the snow without Neymar, Brazil brace for Russia

first_img0Shares0000Fans wear masks of Brazil’s Neymar, who is home with his famous right foot recovering from surgery as the rest of the Brazil squad prepare to face hosts Russia in their penultimate World Cup warmup © AFP/File / Nelson ALMEIDAMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Mar 22 – Training between mounds of snow without Neymar, Brazil may be forgiven for feeling out of their element as they prepare to face hosts Russia in their penultimate World Cup warmup.The most expensive football player on the planet is back home, celebrating his sister’s birthday with his famous right foot recovering from surgery in a protective boot. But things are deadly serious in Moscow, where the Selecao play on Friday at the Luzhniki Stadium in which they will hope to lift a record sixth World Cup trophy on July 15.Coach Tite will try to make sure his superstars have learned from the unmitigated disaster of their 7-1 drubbing by Germany, whom Brazil play on Tuesday, on home soil back in 2014.That fateful World Cup semi-final four years ago was played without the injured Neymar or suspended centre-back Thiago Silva.Now, as then, Brazil are looking vulnerable in defence and missing their 26-year-old hero.Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar “is a different player. He is one of the top three in the world,” said Tite.“But a strong team should not depend on specific names.”– Fighting for a spot –Without Neymar, Tite is entrusting the left wing to Juventus’s in-form Douglas Costa.With Neymar out, Brazil coach Tite is entrusting the left wing to Juventus’s in-form Douglas Costa © AFP/File / MIGUEL MEDINAThe 27-year-old is in the prime of his career after spending much of it tucked away in Ukraine playing for Shakhtar Donetsk.Costa has only found the net three times in 22 appearances in a yellow jersey but this is his time to shine, and he does not seem phased by the occasion.“Replacing Neymar is an enormous challenge, but we have a lot of class acts on the team who have big potential,” said Costa.“Neymar’s absence gives the other players a chance to show themselves, to show their best side.”Costa will be paired up front with Chelsea’s graceful winger Willian and Gabriel Jesus, who has scored 11 times for Manchester City this season.It is a dizzying array of stars and Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro may have put it most succinctly when contemplating the effect of such strong internal competition.“I do not want to lose my place to anyone,” said Casemiro.“I want to play for my country, play in all the matches, and I am ready to show my best at training to do it.”If Tite is spending any sleepless nights, it might not be because of Neymar’s absence but due to his defence.Despite boasting a trio of Neymar’s PSG teammates: Silva, Marquinhos and Dani Alves, Brazil have a weakness at left-back should something happen to Real Madrid’s Marcelo.His regular replacement Filipe Luis suffered a broken leg playing for Atletico Madrid last week and is expected to be out for two months.Despite boasting a trio of Neymar’s PSG teammates: Silva, Marquinhos and Dani Alves, Brazil have a weakness at left-back should something happen to Real Madrid’s Marcelo (L) © AFP/File / JAVIER SORIANOThird choice Alex Sandro of Italian champions Juventus was injured during the first training session in Moscow.As a result, Tite had to call up the uncapped 28-year-old Ismaily — named after an obscure 1956 British film called “Smiley”.He is a complete unknown in his homeland and his selection was perhaps more due to his geographic proximity — he plays for Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine — than anything else.Rio’s Globo Esporte newspaper pointed out incredulously that Ismaily was the 10th left-back called up by Tite since he took over in 2014.Despite the problems, and temperatures due to drop to -9 Celsius (16 Fahrenheit) in Moscow, Brazil are hoping to leave a legacy.“We will be playing in the stadium that will host the final, and we want to leave a wish,” said Casemiro.“We want to come back here in the summer and try to win the title.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
