Community | Education | Family | Juneau | Local GovernmentLicensed child care availability up 21% in JuneauSeptember 5, 2016 by Lakeidra Chavis, KTOO Share:Issy Kako-Gehring holds her two-year-old daughter, Ally.

(Photo by Lakeidra Chavis/ KTOO)Licensed child care availability is up 21 percent in Juneau compared with last year, according to a local organization.Child care providers and its supporters say that’s good news for a market that historically has struggled to meet demand.Audio Playerhttps://media.ktoo.org/2016/09/05CHILDCARE.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Joy Lyon is the executive director the Association for the Education of Young Children, a Juneau-based organization that researches and provides services for child care in Southeast Alaska.“We’re really excited that now we 21 percent more child care spaces than we did last year, at this time, so there’s an increase of 80-some spaces that is the result of three different initiatives.”One of the big initiatives relaxed city zoning rules that apply to child care centers, which the Juneau Assembly passed late last year.One change let at-home child and day care providers have up to 12 children, instead of eight, without needing a permit from the city.“The zoning laws have led to four new group homes, so they’re able to provide support for more children,” Lyon said. “That’s the model we hope to encourage for the other 30 family child care providers, and then two new centers have started since last year, which has led to the increase. One of the centers would not have been able to start without that change to the zoning laws.”That center is the Gehring Nursey School.Gehring Nursery School worker Allison Cadiente-Laiti-Blattner reads to a group of children. (Photo by Lakeidra Chavis/ KTOO)On a recent morning there, about a dozen babies and children are running around, eating snacks and preparing to paint. Some are crowding in a circle to listen for an impromptu story time.The five women that work at the day care also have their own children here. One teacher says watching her children grow up while working is a bonus.Amy Myers is an administrator at the daycare. After getting pregnant two years, she says one of her first thoughts was: What about child care?“I heard that there were waitlists for pretty much every day care,” she said, “and then not only were there waitlists for child care, there were no infant spots.”She says if you’re lucky, the search starts early.“So really it’s that moment you find out you’re pregnant, you have to get on a waitlist for somewhere,” Myers said.Myers decided to be a stay-at-home mom, and eventually started working at the day care center.Issy Kako-Gehring runs the center and says just two years ago, it couldn’t have existed under the city’s zoning rules for child care providers.In 2014, she says she began meeting with Juneau Republican Rep. Cathy Muñoz and Juneau Assembly member Jesse Kiehl to address the issue. Those meetings eventually led to the zoning changes.Two other initiatives have also contributed to additional childcare availability, Lyon said.The first is the Hiring, Educating and Retaining Teaching Staff, or HEARTS initiative, which the city sponsors. The program’s goal is to the provide educational resources and help retain child care teachers.The second initiative is a $1,000 grant that Lyon’s organization offers to new child care startups.Kako-Gehring said families turning over is another factor.“Part of that reason, I think, is that a lot of families are moving,” she said. “We’ve had at least 10 families in the last year, to move out of state, young families.”Juneau has an aging community and the cost of child care here forces families to make important decisions, she said.For mothers, she said, do you work and pay a thousand dollars a month for your child to be in day care, or do you stay home and watch them grow up?“There’s a lot that’s involved in this 21 percent and it has to be looked at from every angle,” she said. “The 21 percent increase could also mean that less women are in the workforce.”Kako-Gehring said her day care isn’t at capacity. That’s a good thing, she said; her workers aren’t overwhelmed. But when they do open a spot — it’s filled almost immediately.A few other child care centers I called in Juneau had long waiting lists, too, especially for infants. But for the first time in five years, child care capacity in Juneau is rising.Share this story:
Federal Government | Government | Juneau | Politics | Public Safety | Southcentral | Southeast | State GovernmentIn Juneau, state and local officials are on edge but hopeful there won’t be local violenceJanuary 13, 2021 by Rashah McChesney, KTOO Share:The Alaska State Capitol and Dimond Courthouse in downtown Juneau. (Tripp J Crouse/KTOO)State lawmakers in Juneau and local law enforcement are preparing for the possibility of violence after the FBI warned of potential armed protests in each state capital on Sunday. While it’s not clear if a protest will take place in Alaska — or even where it might be — the threat of violence has already had an impact. Republican Senator Gary Stevens said he doesn’t want to go into details, but the legislature has plans to protect the state capitol and the people in it.“We’re very concerned about it,” Stevens said. “You’d be foolish not to have paid attention to what went on in Washington, D.C. and the various plans we’ve heard around the country, so I’m certain we’ll see something in Juneau as well.” Alaska’s Capitol building is closed to the public because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but Stevens says there will be plenty of people in it on Sunday. Lawmakers and staff have been coming into town for days to prepare for the upcoming legislative session, which is scheduled to begin on Tuesday. Sen. Gary Stevens (R-Kodiak) on March 14, 2017. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)After the deadly violence in Washington, D.C., when rioters broke into the nation’s Capitol building, Stevens says they had to beef up security. “We’re not going to barricade the building, we’re not going to have National Guard in front of the building, nothing like that. But we have access to other police and protection people if things become dangerous,” Stevens said. Stevens said it never really crossed his mind that Alaska lawmakers would have to be concerned about rioters breaking into the building.But several other states have responded to the threat as well. Earlier this week, Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers activated the National Guard to support police in Madison, and state workers boarded up windows at the state’s Capitol building. State officials in Arizona and Michigan took steps to protect their Capitols as well, according to the Washington Post. After the violence in Washington, D.C., Rayme Vinson, the security chief for Alaska’s Legislative Affairs Agency, emailed staff and legislators saying they would be taking extra precautions, including regular patrols by Juneau police and issuing key cards to the Capitol to Juneau-based Alaska State Troopers. Stevens said he’s hearing from a lot of staff and lawmakers. “There are going to be 200-300 people coming into this building,” Stevens said. “They’re concerned about what’s going to happen and concerned about putting themselves in jeopardy.”But he doesn’t think the violence happening in other parts of the country will happen in Alaska. “I’ve been involved in politics for many years, and I don’t think it’s going to happen here. It could and it would be foolish of us not to be prepared for that,” he said. “My guess is there’s not going to be any invasion at the Capitol, but should there be — we’re going to be prepared for it.”Juneau Police Lt. Krag Campbell said they don’t yet have any concrete information about plans for a rally in Juneau, though that could change this week. He said they’re coordinating with other state and federal law enforcement agencies to make sure that they’re ready in case something happens.“And if we plan and staff and do all these things and nobody shows up? Great,” he said.Campbell said rumors on social media that protestors are planning to be armed changes the calculation that police have to make when they’re deciding how to respond. Campbell said that even though it’s legal, it’s generally not a good idea to bring a weapon to a protest. “Leave guns, weapons, any type of weapon at home. Because bringing a weapon to a protest is generally going to increase the stress level of everybody there — as the increased likelihood that something will go bad, and it’s just not worth it. Some people will be perfectly peaceful, but not everybody may be,” he said.Like Stevens, Campbell said he doesn’t think Juneau residents are likely to get violent. But he urged residents not to jump onto social media platforms and get sucked in by the hate. “Go on a hike. Do something peaceful. Stay at home. Do something other than what is trying to be planned,” he said. “If somebody hears things, feel free to share that with us. It really just helps us be aware, to anticipate what’s going on.”Juneau officials aren’t the only ones preparing for the possibility of unrest. The Dimond Center, a shopping mall in Anchorage, will be closed on Sunday. An online flyer listed the center as the location for an armed rally. Alaska’s News Source later reported that the location should have been listed as Juneau.According to that story, the organizers confused the Dimond shopping center with the Dimond Courthouse, which is across the street from the Capitol building in Juneau. It’s not clear if there will be extra security at the courthouse over the weekend. Area Court Administrator James Kwon wrote in an email that the Alaska Court System defers to law enforcement agencies like the state’s Department of Public Safety, local and federal law enforcement for security expertise. He did not return a phone call seeking clarification on what type of security the court system has in place in Juneau. The courthouse is closed on the weekend and will also be closed on Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Share this story:
Tags: NULL Joseph Millis Show Comments ▼ IRISH budget airline Ryanair yesterday raised its full-year profit forecast, following a 22 per cent jump in passenger numbers to 6.35m people in the year to November.The airline said it now expected profits to be between €810m and €830m (£636m-£652m), partly due to better customer service.Just last month, Ryanair had raised its profit outlook by 20 per cent to a range of €750m-€770m. The latest profit upgrade sent shares in the airline up 8.5 per cent to €9.46.Ryanair said improvements in customer service had brought about a stronger than expected performance in the first month of its winter schedule.The results represent a turnaround for Ryanair. Last year, it was forced to issue two profit warnings as a result of lower passenger numbers and airfares, which chief executive Michael O’Leary blamed on “three or four years of austerity across Europe”.O’Leary also admitted earlier this year that his high profile abrasiveness might have put some off flying with the airline.In response, Ryanair cut baggage check-in fees in an attempt to boost passenger numbers, and also allowed passengers to book seats for the first time in February, in a response to a similar move from rival EasyJet.

whatsapp Uber’s Travis Kalanick wants to create 50,000 jobs in Europe Jeff Misenti Show Comments ▼ Sunday 18 January 2015 10:55 am whatsapp Share Uber’s chief executive Travis Kalanick has delivered a major speech on the company’s future in Europe.Kalanick announced 2015 would the year that Uber worked with city authorities across Europe to introduce “progressive regulation” and work to update analogue rules. This follows the approach Uber has taken in the US. Uber’s top boss struck a conciliatory tone toward regulators saying he understood and welcomed the need for some forms of regulation. Kalanick pointed to Uber in the US where drivers undergo thorough background checks, as well as significant insurance.In good news for Uber riders in Europe, the company’s service UberPool in which passengers can share hired cars with riders travelling to roughly the same destination, could see a large proportion of rides become as cheap as €2.5.Building on Uber’s already impressive growth, the company hopes to create 50,000 jobs in Europe this year and take 400,000 cars off the road. Since Uber’s arrival in London two years ago the San Francisco start up has created 7,800 jobs and 900,000 people have used the service.Kalanick’s ambition is for Uber to be consistently available to customers within five minutes. However, while Uber may be looking to make-up with regulators after a series of clashes last year, Kalanick had some tough words for the existing taxi industry.Kalanick said the industry had been responsible for “regulatory capture” and was guilty of creating barriers to entry. He used New York as an example, where the total number of taxis has barely grown in the last 60 years.The taxi industry had, in Kalanick’s words, created an “artificial scarcity” and led to a situation where taxi drivers were paying a large premium for the privilege of driving a car. These drivers, according to Kalanick, were spending “$40,000 a year to be impoverished”.When questioned about Uber’s safety, Kalanick said many people would feel more comfortable in an Uber than a traditional taxi. Uber has faced intense opposition from existing taxi companies and private hire vehicles across Europe.In London, over 20,000 taxi and minicab drivers are demanding the government clamp down on Uber. The drivers, many of whom are represented by the Licensed Private Hire Car (LPHCA), say they want to put an end to Uber’s alleged “unfair” tax arrangements.Chairman of the LPHCA, Steve Wright claimed Uber was benefitting from an “unfair competitive advantage” by operating via a company in the Netherlands.

Mash Holdings’ profit before tax soared 111 per cent to £542.7m for the year to April 30 2014, up from £256.4m in 2012/2013. It included the profit raised from Ashley’s move to sell off £283m-worth of shares, up from £54.7m-worth of disposals in the previous year. Revenue jumped 23.8 per cent to more than £2.7bn, according to accounts filed yesterday at Companies House. Revenues at Sports Direct increased by 23.8 per cent during the period, while revenues at Newcastle United rose 14.8 per cent. Ashley is the sole director named at Mash Holdings although Sports Direct chief executive Dave Forsey is named as secretary. In the director’s report, Ashley notes that “the strength of our business model means we are very well postiioned for the challenges and targets for the next four years. “Our progress since the year end is in line with management expectations”. In January of the 2014/2015 financial year it emerged that Ashley had “gifted” a majority stake in Sports Direct – 50.71 per cent of the retailer, worth £2.2bn – owned through Mash Holdings to a new company. However that company was Mash Beta, a newly formed subsidiary of Mash Holdings, which is also owned by Ashley. In total Mash Holdings and Mash Beta own 55.1 per cent of Sports Direct.

Published: Jan. 30, 2015 Audio ScriptThe Civil Rights Movement 50 years laterJan. 30, 2015 Reiland Rabaka The year is 1965, and America is experiencing a dramatic cultural transformation. Anti-Vietnam War protests erupts on college campuses. The counterculture revolution is changing the status quo. The British rock-and-roll invasion blasts ashore with the arrival of the Beatles at Shea Stadium and the African-American civil rights movement is at its zenith. Remembering the movement 50 years later on the eve of Black History Month is Reiland Rabaka, a professor of African, African American and Caribbean Studies in the department of Ethnic Studies at CU-Boulder.CUT 1 “For those of us that do African-American history we really say the civil rights movement flows from about 1954 with the Brown verses the Board of Education decision until about ’65. (: 12) And the reason we say ‘65 is because that’s the year that’s considered ‘Freedom Summer.’ That is the year that Malcolm X is assassinated. You have the passage of the Voting Rights Act. You have the watts rebellion. You have a lot of things that are going on.” (:27) Another reason 1965 is significant, says Rabaka, is what many people may not know is at the point that Martin Luther King Jr., began to move away from fighting exclusively for civil rights and instead campaigned for poor and middle-class Americans – black, brown or white – and at the same time opposing the Vietnam War.CUT 2 “After the March on Washington they know about ‘I have a dream,’ but they don’t know about the part where Martin says, ‘I’m afraid that they have turned my dream into a nightmare,’ when he talks about Vietnam, when he talks about rampant unemployment, when he talks about substandard education, and not just for black children but for lots of children in America. (:19) And, in fact, Martin Luther King Jr. left this world leading a poor people’s campaign. He didn’t call it the poor black people’s campaign. It was for people in general.” (:28) 1965 also saw the rise of more social movements that Rabaka says were inspired by the Civil Rights Movement.CUT 3 “’65 is the end of the civil rights movement for a lot of people and the beginning of the Black Power movement that is going go from 1965 to 1975. And the Black Power movement is going to be the movement that is going to be a prelude to the hip-hop movement. (:16) And so you really have these sort of series of movements on the part of African-Americans that have really been instrumental, in lots of ways, of expanding the realm of possibilities for American democracy.” (:29) Rabaka argues that the civil rights movement continues today in the form of remixing our concept of American Democracy.CUT 4 “In my hip-hop classes I talk about the ways in which the civil rights generation remixed American democracy they remixed American culture. (:07) And by that what I mean is that the so-called Founding Fathers of the United States of America they started a democratic project but it is really up to us to finish that project. And we need to do that by emphasizing progress not perfection. (3:12) Black History Month actually began in 1926 when historian Carter G. Woodson and the Associating for the Study of Negro Life and History declared the second week in February to be “National History Week.” In 1970 it was expanded to a month and in 1976 the U.S. government officially recognized it.-CU- Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail
