The academy, which is recognized and co-sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration, exposes middle- and high-school students to the aviation industry, and helps prepare them for careers in the aviation field.With many industries facing the Silver Tsunami of retiring workers, the aviation industry is facing a potential gap inqualified professionals throughout aviation. The ACE Academy and the Flight to 48 pilots are working to address that gap.With workforce development and transportation listed as two key items on Indiana’s agenda for progress, the ACE Academy brings aviation-industry advocates together with the up-and-coming generation of industry professionals.“The aviation industry provides a significant number of fulfilling career opportunities beyond being a pilot,” said Page. “There’s an entire aviation-management field that requires engineers, business-management professionals, safety professionals, mechanics, and many more positions.”The ACE academy provides a hands-on, educational approach to the aviation field, while offering camp participants with the resources to explore post-secondary education and career opportunities. High school-students are offered more career- and college-prep opportunities, such as college visits, etiquette dinner, and resume writing. Students are paired with an aviation professional who serves as a mentor to assist with college and career matching, and the college application process.“The ACE Academy provides students with the resources and opportunities needed to begin a successful career in an industry that needs them,” said Miller.This summer marks the seventh year the ACE Academy will host its two camps – one for students ages 10 to 14, and another for students 15-18 years old. Over those seven years, 1,000 students have participated in the camps, with more than 800 continuing into the aviation industry after their high school graduations.All camp participants are exposed to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics courses, in addition to aspects of aviation, including history, aerodynamics, and a multitude of careers available in the industry.Ryan Lynch, a commercial pilot with Republic Airways, founded the ACE Academy after facing challenges finding information and resources to guide him into aviation as a high-school student.For more information about Flight to 48 and how to donate to the ACE Academy, visit www.flightto48.comThe funds raised will be used to provide summer camps for students ages 10-18, incorporate ACE’s educational curriculum into local school clubs, and create further expansion throughout the country.-0-Finally, it’s ‘Drinking Water Week’ INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is celebrating Drinking Water Week, May 6-12, a week that recognizes the vital role water plays in citizens’ daily lives.IDEM is participating in the celebration by reminding Hoosiers about the importance of protecting the state’s drinking water sources so future generations will have access to a safe and sustainable drinking water supply.Hoosiers can participate in protecting Indiana’s drinking water sources by:Following the label when using and storing cleaners, fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides, as well as when disposing of unwanted cleaners, paints, used motor oil, old gasoline, fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides. Never pour household chemicals or harsh cleaners down the drain or a sewer or on the ground. These substances can be properly disposed of at “tox-away days,” which are hosted by local solid waste management districts.Maintaining septic systems and inspecting them regularly.Reporting accidental spills to IDEM’s 24-hour spill line: (888) 233-7745.First passed in 1974, the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) ensures that the drinking water supplied by a public water supply is safe and meets quality standards. Since more than 5.4 million Hoosiers are serviced by a public water system, IDEM works closely with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure those standards are met at the more than 4,000 public water supply locations across the state. IDEM staff assists these water systems through site inspections, technical assistance and financial programs.Within the SDWA, public water systems are required to send out a Consumer Confidence Report every year to show customers that their water meets health standards known as Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs), which include microorganisms, disinfectants, disinfection by-products, inorganic chemicals, organic chemicals and radionuclides. The report contains information on the specific sources of drinking water, the levels of any detected contaminants and educational information regarding the water.In addition to ensuring that Hoosiers have clean, safe drinking water, IDEM oversees the protection of Indiana’s streams, rivers, lakes and aquifers that serve as a source of drinking water. To protect these sources from potential contamination, Indiana developed and implemented a Source Water Protection Program, which identifies the sources of public drinking water, assesses the susceptibility of water-supply systems to contamination and informs the public of the results.For more information about Drinking Water Week, visit the American Water Works Association’s website at www.awwa.org. May 8 is Tastings Tuesday.  Almost 40 Indiana wineries, breweries, distilleries, cideries and meaderies are offering promotions. Many are offering complimentary tastings, discounted growlers, buy one, get one discount and much more.Raise your glass to this fast-growing industry in the Hoosier State, which annually bring home national awards for their wines, brews and spirits.

Richards predicts great things

first_imgMicah Richards is predicting great things ahead for free-scoring Manchester City as the relentless march of Manuel Pellegrini’s men continues in all four competitions. It would be a brave man to bet against City breaking the 100 goals mark against Cardiff, and Richards, 25, is convinced the club are on track for glory but admits it is a difficult job for the manager to keep all the players happy. He said: “I just hope we stay together and grow as a squad and try and keep everyone happy because it’s hard when everyone is not playing every week. “If we can keep this squad together, we will do great things. “A massive thanks to Sheikh Mansour for changing everything and for coming in and investing in the squad. It’s good times and every player wants to be here because this is the club to be at this moment in time. “Hopefully we can keep going in this direction.” City continued their hot streak with a 5-0 demolition of Blackburn in the FA Cup, the 11th time this season they have scored four goals or more in a match. Richards admitted that the contrast with that barren run in 2007 made the current streak all the better. He added: “That was under Stuart Pearce. We didn’t score for something like five months here. It was ridiculous. How times have changed. “You savour these good times all the more because of back then. For me, every day, I come in and I see the players I’m playing with and you compare them to the players I was playing with seven years ago and they’re all internationals now. It’s a different kettle of fish.” Jovetic will find his work cut out to force his way into the team with Aguero, Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko scoring almost at will, but Richards has seen flashes of quality in the Montenegrin to suggest he can make an impact. He said: “It’s going to be hard for him to get into this team, but I’m sure he will be working hard and doing everything he can. “I’ve trained with him. I think if you saw him in the AC Milan game pre-season, I know it was only pre-season, but it was against good opposition and he ripped them to shreds with his movement, skill and touch. “But I think the strikers have got everything. Sergio has pace and power. Edin is a good finisher and good in the air. Negredo runs around like a man possessed and is a great finisher. Jovetic has skill and technique. “They’ve all got something, some sort of gift to bring to the team and it just seems to be clicking at the moment. “If we want to win the league, if we want to win trophies, they are going to be key. “Last season it was more about defenders doing well. I think this season it is more about the attackers and that’s why we look so good.” Richards, however, is refusing to get carried away by talk of an unprecedented quadruple. He said: “We don’t want to get too excited. We want to be in every competition and I think with the squad we have, we should be in every competition. “This is the second-string team apparently and we’ve won 5-0. I don’t think there are any weaknesses in the team. I think that’s the most important thing and if we can keep that going until the end of the season we’ll be all right.” City have scored a remarkable 99 goals so far this season, in all competitions, a stark contrast to Richards’ early days at the club where in 2007 under Stuart Pearce they failed to score in their last eight league games of the season at home. Even more worrying for their rivals, the expensively assembled squad now has Sergio Aguero back from a calf injury and Montenegro striker Stevan Jovetic also pushing for a place ahead of Cardiff’s visit on Saturday.

Football News India slip two places in FIFA rankings, Brazil displace world champions France

first_imgBrazil is currently second in the FIFA rankings.Belgium continues to lead the world rankings.The Indian team now lies at 18th among Asian countries. New Delhi: The Indian football team slipped two places to 103rd in the FIFA rankings.  India lost two matches and drew one in the Intercontinental Cup earlier this month in Ahmedabad. It lost 2-4 to Tajikistan and 2-5 against eventual winners DPR Korea before playing out a 1-1 draw against Syria. India has 1214 ranking points to its kitty, down by five points from the previous chart issued last month. The Indian team now lies at 18th among Asian countries. Iran (23rd) is at the top among Asian countries, followed by Japan (33), Korea (37), Australia (46) and Qatar (62).     Overall, Belgium leads the chart, followed by Brazil, France, England and Uruguay. FIFA sought an update from the AIFF on the current scenario in India to which the national federation reiterated its stance that it would resolve the impasse surrounding a unified league in a two-three year window. Reacting to a representation made by six I-League clubs — Mohun Bagan, East Bengal, Minerva Punjab, Churchill Brothers, Aizawl FC and Gokulam Kerala — the chief member association officer of FIFA Joyce Cook wanted an update on the present scenario from the AIFF.Also Read | Sunil Chhetri named AIFF Player of Year for sixth time     “We would like to obtain an update on the current position of the AIFF as well as any additional information you may be able to provide on the present situation,” Cook wrote in a mail addressed to AIFF general secretary Kushal Das.Also Read | Google dedicates doodle for FIFA Women’s World Cup final 2019 – see pics     FIFA also pointed out that its joint report with AFC following an extensive consultation process last year is being discussed now regarding the merger of Indian Super League and the I-League.     “The report’s objectives are among others, to provide the AIFF with external expertise and to support your federation and its stakeholders in establishing and implementing a widely-supported, robust medium to long-term strategy,” Cook said.     “As you know, the report is, therefore, a comprehensive review and professional proposal which also contains a series of clear and concrete recommendations for your further consideration,” he added.     Later in the day, the AIFF issued a statement without mentioning the FIFA letter.     “In the recent days, the AIFF President Mr Praful Patel in his meeting with the Hero I-League clubs as well as in several recent interviews has broadly taken the same line as was suggested in the above-mentioned report.     “Needless to mention that this is precisely the reason that a two-three-year window is required to resolve all contentious issues amicably with all stakeholders,” the AIFF statement read.     “The question of Hero Indian Super League not remaining a closed league permanently has been clarified amply enough by the AIFF President, and promotion and relegation eventually would lead to the development of club football in India.”     The AIFF said it is committed to engaging with AFC and FIFA as well as all other stakeholders for finding an early resolution to these issues. The six I-League clubs had sought intervention from the FIFA president Gianni Infantino in a 35-point letter with a copy of the Master Rights Agreement, signed in 2010 by AIFF and its commercial partners Football Sports Development, attached to it. highlightscenter_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Bayelsa FA Election: Egbe Protests to NFF, Wants Election Cancelled

first_imgHe noted that he had before the election filed a protest which the State FA failed to address.“If I m beaten in a free and fair election in which there is a level playing field, I won’t have any problem with that. But what happened today in Yenagoa was to say the least a sham. This is why I have taken my case to NFF. Bayelsa deserves the very best and nobody should deny the state the opportunity to throw up her best candidate,” Egbe said.Egbe stressed that the role allegedly played by Dr Peter Singabele was to say the least unacceptable.“I expected Singabele as an elder statesman to be neutral in all of these, but he ended up ganging up with the FA officials to manipulate the electoral process. He (Singabele) was the architect of what happened today and he did what he did because he is scared that my emergence as FA chairman would diminish his influence in Bayelsa football,” Egbe said.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram A top aspirant in the Bayelsa State FA chairmanship position, Ebi Egbe has faulted the electoral process that led to the return of incumbent chairman, Barrister Porbeni Ogoun.Egbe in a protest addressed to Nigeria Football Federation President, Amaju Pinnick noted that the election was manipulated, even as fake delegates were allowed to vote.Egbe who is the Chief Executive Officer of Monimichelle alleged that the state FA officials perfected strategies to hold on to power at all cost.last_img read more
