Can year-round school spell the end of the "summer slide" for disadvantaged kids?
The Florida Republican, with one eye on the White House, tells NPR's Morning Edition that there's a role for government to play in opening access to higher education and job training.
It's been tough to identify the problems that only turn up after medicines are on the market. An experimental project is now combing through data to get earlier, more accurate warnings.
Hidden economic forces like job-specific segregation are keeping young minorities out of the job market.
Programs like Hack the Hood try to help young people in Oakland, Calif., find a gateway into the high-tech industry — and out of "dead-end" jobs.
NOME — A rare blue-colored red king crab was part of a fisherman’s catch earlier this month in Nome, Alaska.
KNOM reported Frank McFarland found the blue crab in his pot when fishing on July Fourth off Nome. The blue crab is being kept alive at the Norton Sound Seafood Center until McFarland can have it mounted.
The rare crab has become a rock star of sorts, with people showing up at the center to have their photos taken with it.
ANCHORAGE — A program originally brought to Alaska to support oil spill planning and response efforts in Cook Inlet has since expanded to most of the state with uses from coastal monitoring to art and education.
The coastal mapping endeavor ShoreZone’s Alaska debut was as a Cook Inlet Regional Citizens Advisory Council pilot project in 2001. Now, about 80 percent of Alaska’s coastline is mapped including Southeast Alaska and the North Slope.
FAIRBANKS — Many of the Alaskana scenes that have gone up around metal railings in Fairbanks recently come from the same place: Alaska Ornamental Iron’s workshop off Chena Pump Road.
Bears, moose, miners and mountain climber silhouettes fill a computer file in the workshop of business owner Warren Flynn. The scenes built from these images get transferred to metal sheets by means of a plasma cutter, a tool that cuts through metal with compressed air heated to very high temperatures.
SITKA — A trip to the grocery store can be a big ordeal for parents of children with disabilities.
“It can be challenging, because I have two other kids as well,” said Jaime Bentley, whose middle child, Jema, has intractable epilepsy and cerebral palsy.
But the members of Girl Scout Troop 4140 are hoping to turn the trip to the store into a better experience for Jaime, Jema - and other children and parents - by purchasing three grocery shopping carts that can carry a person with disabilities weighing up to 200 pounds.
ANCHORAGE — More than two months after it was purchased by an online competitor, Alaska’s largest newspaper will undergo a name change with Sunday’s edition.
The Anchorage Daily News will officially become Alaska Dispatch News. Publisher Alice Rogoff and Editor Tony Hopfinger outlined that and other changes to advertisers during an outdoor luncheon Friday.
Rogoff said the intent is to have an emphasis on statewide news.
KETCHIKAN — Ketchikan city leaders have been asked to come up with ideas to address concerns with fishing from the Stedman Street Bridge.
Residents who testified before the Ketchikan City Council on Thursday generally agreed that fishing should continue to be allowed in some way. But concerns were raised, too, about congested sidewalks, the potential for a tourist to get snagged with a flying fishing hook, and kayakers getting hassled.
