Secondly, it must be a value-based business which must improve something in society. The judges also look for presentation and how well the students present their pitch. Finally, they analyze how well the business plan is articulated on paper.Saturday’s rounds begin at 9:15 a.m. in Brown-Lupton University Union ballroom.

Governor Wolf to Examine Overhaul of Pennsylvania’s Professional Licensing System

first_imgGovernor Wolf to Examine Overhaul of Pennsylvania’s Professional Licensing System Efficiency,  Government That Works,  Jobs That Pay,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf has signed an executive order to begin a review of the commonwealth’s professional licenses to benchmark Pennsylvania’s licensing requirements against national and regional averages. The review will ensure that professional licenses are free from unnecessary barriers to opportunity from excessive licensing requirements, fees and policies that unnecessarily block hardworking Pennsylvanians from the career of their choice, while also protecting against public harm.“Requiring a license to work in certain jobs helps to keep all of us safe, but those requirements should be fair relative to other states in our region and across the country,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “Overly burdensome requirements and fees can block some workers – especially minorities or spouses in military families who move frequently – from starting a career and supporting their families.”“With this executive order, I am tasking the Commissioner of the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs within the Pennsylvania Department of State. The commissioner will work with the various licensing boards and commissions to give them the tools they need to more efficiently regulate their industry.”The commissioner will partner with the 29 boards and commissions in Pennsylvania to study each board’s licensing process, fees, training and continuing education requirements. The commissioners will prepare a report comparing Pennsylvania’s requirements with other states in our region and across the nation and include any reciprocity agreements with other states.The Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs within the Pennsylvania Department of State provides administrative and legal support to professional and occupational licensing boards and commissions. Approximately 20 percent of Pennsylvania workers need a license to do their job. The share of workers with an occupational license has grown rapidly since the 1950s.“We need to find the right balances in our licensing requirements so talented and skilled workers can do their jobs and support our economy as we continue to attract business to Pennsylvania and develop a strong workforce,” said Governor Wolf. “Looking for ways to modernize our licensing process for workers is an important part of that process.”The boards and commissions included in the executive order are the State Board of Accountancy, the State Architects Licensure Board, the State Board of Auctioneer Examiners, the State Board of Barber Examiners, the State Board of Certified Real Estate Appraisers, the State Board of Chiropractic, the State Board of Cosmetology, the State Board of Crane Operators, the State Board of Dentistry, the State Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, and Geologists, the State Board of Funeral Directors, the State Board of Landscape Architects, the State Board of Massage Therapy, the State Board of Medicine, the State Board of Nursing, the State Board of Nursing Home Administrators, the State Board of Occupational Therapy, the State Board of Optometry, the State Board of Osteopathic Medicine, the State Board of Pharmacy, the State Board of Physical Therapy, the State Board of Podiatry, the State Board of Psychology, the State Board of Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Professional Counselors, the State Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, the State Board of Vehicle Manufacturers, Dealers, and Salespersons, the Navigation Commission, and the Real Estate Commission.The commissioner’s findings will be submitted to the governor within seven months from the effective date of the order.

Curbishley and Wilkins leave Fulham

Alan Curbishley and Ray Wilkins have left Fulham with immediate effect – but head coach Rene Meulensteen still remains under contract, Press Association Sport understands. “Yeah, I am sure I can [keep Fulham up] because I have done it sometimes before in Germany,” Magath said. “I have taken over clubs in a similar situation to Fulham and I am very confident I can do it once more here in England with Fulham. “I think 12 games are enough to keep them in the Premier League and we need confidence now. We need spirit and we will start next Saturday at West Bromwich. “If the players, the staff and fans will support us 100 per cent and the players give 100 per cent in the next days, I am sure we have the potential to avoid relegation.” Magath took his first training session at the club’s Motspur Park training ground on Monday and was pleasantly “surprised” by the qualities his new side possess. “I know not only the German players, but the international players very well,” said the 60-year-old, who has previously worked with Lewis Holtby, Sascha Riether and Ashkan Dejagah. “I would think that we would have a team that has more potential than what we have shown. “I am sure that we will do that in the next games, show our fans, who I hope will support us in our most important game next weekend against West Bromwich, that we can do better than our last games.” However, the same cannot be said for first-team technical director Curbishley and assistant manager Wilkins, who are understood to have left the club following talks with Magath. Curbishley, 56, was brought in to work alongside Meulensteen on Christmas Eve, while 57-year-old Wilkins joined the coaching staff on December 30. While those two are leaving the club, the future of Meulensteen remains uncertain and Magath will no doubt face further questions this week about the Dutchman’s role as Fulham prepare for Saturday’s trip to fellow strugglers West Brom. Following the sacking of Martin Jol after a poor run of form, former Manchester United coach Meulensteen – appointed head coach under his compatriot just weeks earlier – took control of first-team duties on December 1. Speaking to Fulham TV over the weekend in his first interview since taking up the reins, Magath would not be drawn on the future of Meulensteen, preferring instead to focus on his belief that bottom-placed Fulham can beat the drop. “We signed last Friday night, so the time is too short to make up our mind about this stuff,” he said. “I have only time now to work with the players and prepare the team for the most important game next Saturday. We will talk about the stuff afterwards.” The experienced German expressed his confidence of keeping the club in the top flight despite their precarious position. It has been a whirlwind few days at Craven Cottage, with Friday’s shock appointment of Felix Magath as first-team manager resulting in Meulensteen’s spell at the helm ending after just 75 days. The deposed head coach claimed on radio that chief executive Alistair Mackintosh had told him that he had been “released”, although Press Association Sport understands he has not left the west Londoners.

Wrongly Convicted Leonard Cure to be Released from Florida Prison

first_imgFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A man serving a life sentence for a 2003 armed robbery and armed aggravated assault in Dania Beach should be freed while his case is reviewed further, according to the Broward State Attorney’s Office. The prosecutor who convicted him is having serious doubts about eye witness testimony and the lack of any evidence connection Cure to the robbery.Leonard Cure, 50, was found guilty of robbery with a firearm and aggravated assault with a firearm by a Broward jury. Because he was classified as a habitual felony offender, he was sentenced to life in state prison on Nov. 3, 2004.But the Broward State Attorney’s Office is recommending that he should be released immediately “while prosecutors complete a more extensive reexamination of his case.”“This is the right thing to do,” added Broward State Attorney Mike Satz.Cure is expected to be released from the Sumter Correctional Institution in Bushnell next Tuesday.He was convicted of stealing $1,700 in cash from two employees of a Walgreen’s store in Dania Beach on Nov. 10, 2003 (Case Number: 03-019405CF10A).A memo written by Berger reads in part:“The issues we find most troublesome are those surrounding how Cure became a suspect in the first place. Seemingly, a man who had no connection to a Walgreen’s robbery became the main suspect after someone reviewed photos of well-dressed/neat-appearing African-American males. That was it, there was no physical evidence, no witnesses who knew him, nothing but an alleged search in the questionable ‘TRAP’ Program. The case became questionable at the very onset. If the identification was bad, then everything that comes after is bad as well.“The original prosecutor also saw the weaknesses in this case. Once one of the two victims had a difficult time identifying Cure in the lineup and after the first jury came back hung, he offered a below guidelines sentence of 7 years. Cure has now served significantly more time than that, over 16 years. After the hung jury, he continued to maintain his innocence. A second jury convicted him and he was then sentenced by the Judge [Fred Berman] to life in prison.“After considering all the facts and circumstances of this case, it is our conclusion that it is in the best interest of justice to release Cure as soon as possible. We would like to modify his sentence and give time served for his 16 years plus in Florida State Prison. This will allow for the defendant to be released after serving a significant amount of time while we can thoroughly review his case for a potential exoneration.”Click here to read the order modifying Cure’s sentence.Broward County Judge Circuit Judge John J. Murphy III signed the order to release Cure from prison.“I am beyond excited. I have so many thanks for the State Attorney’s Office and the Innocence Project of Florida for paving the way for my freedom. I’m looking forward to spending time with my family for the first time in 16 years,” Cure said to the Innocence Project of Florida upon finding out about his release from prison.last_img read more
