Video shows teens beating Chicago student to death

Cell phone footage showing a group of teens viciously kicking and striking a 16-year-old honors student with splintered railroad ties has ramped up pressure on Chicago officials to address chronic violence that has led to dozens of deaths of city teens each year.

The graphic video of the afternoon melee emerged on local news stations over the weekend, showed the fatal beating of Derrion Albert, a sophomore honor roll student at Christian Fenger Academy High School. His death was the latest addition to a toll that keeps getting higher: More than 30 students were killed last school year, and the city could exceed that number this year.

Prosecutors charged three teenagers on Monday with fatally beating Albert, who was walking to a bus stop when he got caught up in the mob street fighting, authorities said.

The violence stemmed from a shooting early Thursday morning involving two groups of students from different neighborhoods, said Tandra Simonton, a spokeswoman for the Cook County prosecutor’s office. When school ended, members of the two groups began fighting near the Agape Community Center.

The attack, captured in part on a bystander’s cell phone video, shows Albert being struck on the head by one of several young men wielding wooden planks. After he falls to the ground an appears to try to get up, he is struck again and then kicked.

Prosecutors charged Silvonus Shannon, 19, Eugene Riley, 18, and Eric Carson, 16, with first-degree murder, and they were ordered held without bond on Monday, said Andy Conklin, a spokesman for the Cook County prosecutor’s office. The Cook County Public Defender’s Office, which represented the three teenagers in court, had no immediate comment Monday.

Chicago police said charges are pending against a fourth suspect and that they are looking for at least three more suspects, but would not discuss a possible motive for the attack.

Simonton said Albert was a bystander and not part of either group. She said he was knocked unconscious when Carson struck him in the head with a board and the second person punched him in the face. Albert regained consciousness and was trying to get up when he was attacked a second time by five people and was struck in the head with a board by Riley and stomped in the head by Shannon, Simonton said.

Desiyan Bacon, Riley’s aunt, said her nephew didn’t have anything to do with the beating and was a friend of the victim.

“They need to stop the crime, but when they do it, they need to get the right person,” Bacon said.

For Chicago, a sharp rise in violent student deaths over the past three school years–most from shootings off school property–have been a tragedy and an embarrassment.

Before 2006, an average of 10 to 15 students were fatally shot each year. That climbed to 24 fatal shootings in the 2006 to 2007 school year, 23 deaths and 211 shootings in the 2007 to 2008 school year and 34 deaths and 290 shootings last school year.

At a vigil at the school on Monday, some community members said the solution lies with parents.

“It is our problem. We have to take control of our children,” said Dawn Allen, who attended a vigil at the school Monday, where a group of residents tried to force their way into the school before being turned back by police.

This month, the city announced a $30 million project that targets 1,200 high school pupils identified as most at risk to become victims of gun violence, giving them full-time mentors and part-time jobs to keep them off the streets. Some money also will pay for more security guards and to provide safe passage for students forced to travel through areas with active street gangs.

Albert’s family attended a news conference Monday with school district leaders and police, but did not speak. They wore T-shirts with a picture of him in a cap and gown, with the words, “Gone too soon, too young.”

But Annette Holt, mother of Blair Holt, a Chicago Public Schools student who was shot on a city bus two years ago, said Albert represented “another promising future, just snuffed out because of violence…we have to do something different here because obviously we didn’t solve the problem.”

“Someone said he (Derrion) was in the wrong place at the wrong time,” she said. “No, he wasn’t. He was in the right place. He was coming from school.”



CARY, N.C. (September 28, 2009) —, the nation’s leading provider of on-demand software designed exclusively for educational facility, technology and business operations, announced today that it has been named the latest winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards program, which is aimed at promoting the measurable business benefits delivered by today’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.
“Today’s economy has had a particularly detrimental effect on public and private education institutions.’s SaaS solutions are clearly helping these institutions achieve their objectives in a more cost-effective fashion," said Jeffrey Kaplan, the founder of the SaaS Showplace and managing director of THINKstrategies, Inc., a leading consulting firm.
SchoolDude is being recognized for its suite of on-demand operations management tools that helps school districts, private schools, colleges and universities save money and time by managing their IT, facilities and business operations more efficiently. This suite includes solutions for preventive maintenance, facility work order management, inventory management, IT incident and IT asset management, community use, field trip scheduling, capital planning, and utility use tracking and analysis.
With more than 4,100 clients, SchoolDude has helped numerous educational institutions achieve measurable benefits, including:
·         St. Lucie County School District, Fla.
    • Saved approximately $204,000 per month on utility expenditures
    • Avoided spending nearly $2,000,000, or 19 percent of utility budget, over nine months
·         South Lyon Community Schools, Mich.
    • 150 percent improvement in work order completions/week
    • Reduced time to complete work orders from 1-2 weeks to a single day
    • 3x productivity gain in the maintenance and operations department
    • “On-time completion” rate is now 85 percent

“SchoolDude’s online IT incident management system, ITDirect, allows us to better manage first-level tech support so that now, instead of being reactive to every fax or phone call, we can work out a fixed maintenance schedule that is reliable and predictable,” said Len Niebo, director of information and instructional technologies at Brick Township Public Schools in New Jersey. “This could never happen prior to ITDirect. I would quantify this with us having the ability to not staff an extra full-time helpdesk technician, maybe two.”
It is for quantifiable reasons such as these that SchoolDude has been named a Best of SaaS Showplace Award winner in the education market category. A full description of SchoolDude’s winning submission can be found at Executives at SchoolDude were especially pleased to accept this award, as it reflects the SchoolDude mission.

AMSTERDAM – September 28, 2009 – Elsevier, a world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the launch of SciVal Funding, a comprehensive funding intelligence solution for U.S. research institutions. The platform helps researchers locate the most appropriate grant opportunities in order to maximize their potential to receive funding.

Securing funding is an essential step in a researcher’s workflow. Due to the labor intensive and demanding nature of the process, researchers may spend up to one third of their time seeking grant opportunities and preparing proposals – often with limited success. As research becomes increasingly multidisciplinary, collaborative and international, securing funding is inherently more competitive. Recognizing these challenges, SciVal Funding is designed to optimize the pre-award stages of the process, leading researchers and research administrators to grants with the greatest potential for success by integrating current funding opportunities with publication information and historical award data.
SciVal Funding allows users to routinely search over 5,000 grant sources, including federal funding bodies and private foundations. Updated daily, funding opportunities can be explored by subject area, award type, deadline or amount. In addition, by fully cataloguing limited submission programs, research administrators may set up necessary internal review mechanisms in a timely way. Access to a comprehensive pool of funding opportunities as well as the ability to uncover new sources of financial support is especially critical in these difficult economic times.
Moreover, the solution provides customized recommendations and alerts by matching funding opportunity data to pre-populated research profiles that are continuously updated. This eliminates the need to create a summary of each investigator’s body of work and allows users to run searches on their own as well as other researchers’ profiles. These recommendations can also serve as guideposts to junior faculty regarding which funding sources to pursue, particularly as the early grants in a young researcher’s career are critical to building a solid track record.
Another advantage of the solution is the integrated funding award information. The historical data on what grants were awarded to which researcher and at which specific institution, provides vital insight into the funding environment. This intelligence enables researchers to more accurately estimate their award chances, tailor their proposal, find collaborators and ultimately better compete for grants.  Research administrators may also use this award information for performance measurement, evaluation and strategic planning purposes.  
“The fragmented and fast-changing nature of today’s research funding environment, combined with the limited time and resources of researchers, is driving a need to rethink the current approach to the grant-seeking process,” explained Josine Stallinga for Elsevier’s Academic and Government Group. “SciVal Funding helps users make smarter decisions when it comes to determining which research grants to pursue as well as the most appropriate way to pursue them. Ultimately, reducing time spent searching for funding enables scientists to focus on what’s really important — their research.”
On June 30, 2009, Elsevier hosted a webcast discussing the challenges of today’s funding environment and offering an overview of the SciVal Funding solution. To view a recording of the virtual event, please visit, and for information on the tool, please visit

Low ‘net capacity stymies students

Colorado lags far behind the national average in terms of high-speed internet connectivity at its schools. A solution is in the works, but it hinges on a nonprofit consortium landing $178.5 million in competitive federal stimulus grants to increase broadband speeds at every K-12 school district in the state, reports the Denver Post. Joan Stemo’s classroom at Weld Central High School, a $21 million facility that opened just four years ago, is lined with 30 computers, each equipped with the latest technology. Yet her students don’t have the internet capability to download iTunes songs for their scrapbook-DVD projects. "If they all try to log on at one time, it’s a disaster," Stemo said. Weld Central’s school district has access to 7.5 megabits per second of bandwidth for roughly 2,100 students. That’s a rate of about 3.5 kilobits per second per student, which is the average for schools in Colorado, according to a survey by the Centennial Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) in Longmont. The national average is 6.4 Kbps per student. To sustain a "ubiquitous computing environment," schools will need to reach a rate of 40 Kbps per student, according to the 2008 America’s Digital Schools study. Schools in rural Colorado are struggling to keep pace, because it’s typically not cost-effective for internet providers to build out services in the area. But location is only part of the problem. Denise Atkinson-Shorey, a Centennial BOCES official who led the broadband grant application on behalf of the Colorado Community Anchor Broadband Consortium, said Colorado schools are behind the nation in broadband adoption because they haven’t worked together to buy bandwidth in bulk. It’s a path states such as Utah and Nebraska have taken, which has helped them drive down costs and increase capacity, Atkinson-Shorey said…

Private schools are policing kids’ online behavior

Should schools police student conduct on the web, even if the conduct takes place off campus? Though most public school internet policies stop at the school door, some private schools are taking a broader view, reports the Detroit Free Press. At Brother Rice High School in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., the policy on internet usage says students can be held accountable for what they say or post online, even if the action occurs away from school. "I don’t think we are restricting people’s First Amendment rights," said John Birney, president of the private all-boys school. He acknowledged that it is probably easier for a private or parochial school to have a far-reaching policy, "but just like businesses have expectations of behavior for their employees, I think schools, the same way, have concerns. We think discipline is very important to our learning experience, to raise boys to be gentlemen." Fara Warner, a University of Michigan lecturer on internet communications, takes issue with the idea of a school disciplining students for off-campus web activities. "That’s sort of like censoring kids," Warner said But she said even college students are starting to be cautious about what they post online. "I think there has been quite a shift in my students that what you put on Facebook is public, and there are consequences," Warner said…

Elgin classroom introduces ‘Wiihab’

From baseball to boxing, the Nintendo Wii gaming system is giving students a workout in Kevin McDaniels’ multi-handicapped classroom at Elgin West Elementary School, reports the Marion Star of Ohio. Elgin Local Schools received a grant from the Mid-Ohio Energy Community Fund to purchase a Wii and software such as Wii Fit to use in the classroom. McDaniels’ goals were to increase his students’ fine and gross motor skills, help them deal with the concept of winning and losing, and increase their classroom attention. "I’ve seen online [that] a lot of nursing homes use Wiis for physical therapy," McDaniels said. He decided to see if it would also work in his classroom. The students started using the system at the beginning of the school year. While they receive physical or occupational therapy once a week, depending on their needs, they can use the Wii daily. McDaniels says using the Wii helps students increase their fine and gross motor skills, strengthen their muscles, and develop their hand-eye coordination and posture. "As far as winning and losing, it’s not been a problem yet," said McDaniels, who said often neither player scores. "These guys, most of the time they tie. They have fun."

Comcast, Discovery team up to extend learning

In a move that could help extend students’ learning after school hours, the state of Indiana, Comcast Corp., and Discovery Education have teamed up to provide students with free on-demand digital resources that are aligned with state standards.

Discovery Education On Demand By Comcast is a first-in-the-nation service that will give Indiana families instant, at-home access to educational video clips, hands-on activities, interactive content, subject guides, puzzles, and homework help tools. Content is available at no additional cost to local Comcast Digital Cable customers on their cable TV service and to all Indiana parents and students online. (With free registration, persons outside of Indiana may access the content as well.)

Currently, more than 200 videos are available on demand through the service, and all "engage students in learning, and support and supplement the work of educators in classrooms across the state," said Stephen Wakefield, communications manager for Discovery Education. "These videos, aligned to state standards and organized by grade level and subject area, cover core academic disciplines including math, science, English/language arts, and social studies."

Content will be continually refreshed with new videos, and new content will be added online regularly as well, said Wakefield.

Discovery Education On Demand By Comcast was inspired by the personal experience of Scott Tenney, senior vice president of Comcast’s Indianapolis region. Nearly 20 years ago, Tenney and his wife were seeking tools to supplement the education of their son, who had been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome and dyslexia. They found that Discovery’s educational content was a resource that engaged their son in learning and made a difference in his academic progress. 


Motivated by this experience, Tenney and Comcast partnered with Discovery Education, a division of Discovery Communications, to make educationally relevant media available to Indiana parents and caregivers.

"Every parent wants to help [his or her] child succeed in school," said Tenney. "By combining the power of our two-way interactive fiber-optic network with the outstanding content from Discovery Education, Comcast is pleased to provide a service that helps parents partner with their child’s educator and further engage children in learning."

"A handful of states, such as California, Texas, and Indiana, are leading a migration away from traditional textbooks toward digital content," said Wakefield. "In Indiana, the state Board of Education recently made changes to [its] textbook adoption process, further embracing digital media."

The state education board voted a few months ago to issue a blanket waiver allowing state-accredited public and private schools to use a broad range of multimedia, computer, and internet resources to supplement or replace traditional textbooks.

Although the state textbook adoption process is still in place, Indiana schools have the freedom to choose the materials and resources they think are best suited to the instructional needs of their students. 

"While Indiana is among the states leading the shift to digital content into the classroom, Comcast’s Indianapolis region, in partnership with Discovery Education, also is leading the way in providing educational digital content to homes that parents can use to supplement the great work teachers across the state are doing each day," said Wakefield.

"This service benefits all students, because it provides engaging educational content that can be accessed at home, from a trusted source," he continued. "These forms of educational content truly connect to today’s students. Consuming, processing, and learning from media, in many forms simultaneously, is how today’s tech-savvy students function."

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, students consume media for more than six hours per day–eight when counting exposure to multiple forms of media at the same time.

"This constant interaction with media equates to a full-time job of learning through ‘untraditional’ means," said Wakefield. "Through the engaging media provided by Discovery Education On Demand By Comcast via both on-demand [cable] and the internet, students can continue learning with credible educational content."

Discovery Education and Comcast say they’ll soon begin a series of professional development events for educators throughout Indiana, designed to help them learn how to integrate digital media into their classroom activities.

Comcast Digital Cable customers in Comcast’s Indianapolis region, which includes Central and Northeast Indiana, can access Discovery Education On Demand By Comcast content through Comcast’s on-demand cable library by selecting "Get Local," then "Education." The content is available to Comcast Digital Cable customers at no extra cost, with the ability to pause, fast forward, and rewind selections.

Florida college students get free online books

The board that oversees Florida’s state universities has launched a program that will offer free online textbooks to students; the program makes printed books available as well, for about half the price that students now pay every semester.

More than 120 textbooks are available to Florida state university students for downloading free of charge through the program, called Orange Grove Texts Plus. The initiative is a partnership with University Press of Florida. And if a student wants a printed book, he or she can buy the text for up to half off the prices found at most retail and online book stores, University Press officials said. The books will be sold for $29 to $54 apiece.

Orange Grove officials will tour the state in the coming weeks and lobby college faculty members to submit their textbooks to the free online repository. Cathy Alfano, a project manager for Orange Grove, said California bolstered its online textbook collection with a similar strategy.

"We don’t know how many we’ll discover," Alfano said.

Program officials said printed books would be made available because surveys show that although reading from a computer screen is commonplace on college campuses, many students don’t prefer it.

An Orange Grove survey found that 22 percent of students were "uncomfortable" reading from a laptop or personal computer screen, while 33 percent of students said they were "comfortable." Three-quarters of students in the survey said they preferred to read a print textbook instead of a digital textbook, and 60 percent of students said they would buy a discounted printed book even if the text was available for free online.

Dennis Lloyd, a spokesman for University Press of Florida, said the program will benefit from a growing sentiment among educators that web-based material should be free, especially when it benefits cash-strapped college students who often face textbook costs of more than $1,000 per year.

"There are some [professors] who do this because they’re believers in the idea that information wants to be free," Lloyd said, adding that the free online program will pay royalties to authors when printed textbooks are sold through the web site.

The Orange Grove program will get its funding, in part, from the sale of discounted books, officials said, although a long-term funding model has yet to be announced. Orange Grove Texts was launched in 2004 as a web-based repository for educator lesson plans, holding more than 1,200 text, audio, video, and illustrated resources for teachers.

Alfano said the free online option will give college students a chance to trim their hefty textbook expenses during a down economy in which few jobs are available.

"Students are always trying to save money, and even more when economic times are rough," said Alfano, who added that the Orange Grove program has gotten an "incredible flurry of interest from Florida educators and students–there’s a lot of interest out there right now."

College students spend $800 to $1,100 a year on textbooks, according to government and industry reports. The cost of books has tripled between 1986 and 2004, rising more than 5 percent every year. Students are increasingly charging their textbooks to credit cards, adding to debt that could hurt after graduation, according to a study by Sallie Mae, the country’s biggest college lender.

The rising cost of books has spawned rental web sites. Higher-education officials and representatives from textbook rental companies said the rental industry has boomed over the past year, as students and their families have been affected by the recession., launched in 2007, has shipped books to students at more than 6,000 U.S. colleges and universities, a spokeswoman said. The company says it saves students up to 85 percent off textbooks, trimming overall student textbook costs by more than $40 million over the past two years. reportedly carries two million book titles.

Swine Flu Pandemic – Learn A Technique To Avoid Swine Flu Forever

The Swine Flu is becoming an epidemic that is sweeping across the nation. There is, however, a technique that can help you avoid infection without resorting to drugs.

Virginia Beach, VA 09/11/09 – The Release Technique is proud to announce that it offers a unique system by which individuals can release all of their negative thoughts and energy and avoid many health problems, including the swine flu.

The abundance course, based on techniques created by Lester Levenson, can teach anyone how to let go of their negative thoughts and better their lives without expending any real effort. Releasing negativity has been proven to lead to better health, more wealth, and a happier life.

Larry Crane is the teacher of the Release Technique. He was a close personal friend to Lester Levenson for over 20 years and learned a great deal about how to release away all of the stress and tension that holds most of us back and causes a multitude of illnesses.

Levenson once told him, "There is no such thing as a germ." While this may sound unbelievable, Crane took it to heart and released the negative energies that were causing him to suffer migraines, ulcers, frequent colds, and other illnesses. He says that he has not seen a doctor in 29 years.

Today, Crane is offering the Release Technique as a self help course sold over the internet. It contains the same information that he has been teaching to CEOs of Fortune 500 companies for the past 20 years and more.

The abundance course teaches an amazingly simple technique that anyone can use to release all of the negative emotions, stress, problems, and unconscious blocks that keep them from having the things they want in life. When applied the technique brings more happiness, more wealth, and better health to all who use it.

For more information about this simple technique that has the power to affect such a profound change in one’s life and even protect one from illnesses like the swine flu, visit
