Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) Superintendent Robert W. Runcie announced plans for graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2020.In a letter and video message sent on Wednesday, April 22, 2020, the Superintendent outlined the District’s decision to host virtual graduation ceremonies honoring the achievements of BCPS high school seniors.Read the letter here: Superintendent’s Letter to Class of 2020.Traditional graduation ceremonies, a customary celebration for students and their families, had to be altered due to restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic.“After completing more than a decade of schooling, you have reached a proud milestone and are ready to jump into the next chapter of life,” Superintendent Runcie said in his message to seniors.“With the education and training you have received, you are well prepared to be successful on whatever path you take. Our goal is to use technology to make your graduation personal and memorable.”Over the past few weeks, administrators and teachers have met with seniors and representatives from across the District to consider graduation options and receive their input on plans.The decision was made that virtual graduation ceremonies for each high school will take place June 15 – 28, 2020, and will include all of the traditional pomp and circumstance, including speeches and roll call of graduates. Each graduation ceremony will broadcast live on BECON-TV and stream live.The date for each school’s graduation, along with more details, will be announced on Friday, May 1.“The District has been meeting with seniors to hear our ideas about graduation. We’ve been clear about wanting a traditional graduation, but we also know that we’re making sacrifices right now for our own health and safety, and for the greater good,” said Beau Simon, student advisor to the School Board of Broward County and senior at Cypress Bay High School.“With that as a background, the District has worked to create a plan that brings the characteristics of a traditional graduation into a virtual one. It includes things we said are important to us. It will allow us to make memories.”Below is the Superintendent’s video message to the graduating class of 2020.[vdgk_video_sticky videotype=”youtube” src=”https://becon.eduvision.tv/Share.aspx?q=3SfVi13wT7TD0iTuUK3XZQ%253d%253d” height=”295″ width=”525″]
SK Telecom and Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), in a joint effort, have developed the industry’s first 5G-based autonomous and remote control navigation test platform and built a Remote Control Center in Daejeon, South Korea.Marking an important step towards commercialization of 5G-based autonomous and remote control navigation technologies, the companies successfully completed the development of the 5G-based autonomous and remote control navigation test platform and verified the platform using a test ship. The 3.3-meter-long test ship, independently developed by SHI, has been applied with 5G-based LiDAR, cloud-based IoT platform and T-Live Caster, SK Telecom’s real-time video monitoring solution.The test operation took place in the sea near SHI’s Geoje Shipyard, which is covered by SK Telecom’s 5G network. From the Remote Control Center in Daejeon located 250 kilometers from the shipyard, the companies remotely set the ship’s destination and showed off the autonomous navigation system that enabled the test ship to safely sail to the destination by recognizing and avoiding maritime obstacles. They also verified the remote control ship operating capability, which enabled the test ship to be remotely controlled and managed in real-time via 5G connectivity.The 5G-based autonomous and remote control navigation test platform is expected to significantly improve the safety of ships especially when sailing in narrow water or near shore and enable real-time monitoring of ships based on massive data sent to the IoT platform. SK Telecom and SHI had also entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to realize 5G-based Smart Yard in March 2019. This Smart Yard is set to provide a safer and more productive ship-building environment through real-time detection and control of all equipment/facilities within the shipyard.According to Choi Il-gyu, Vice President and Head of B2B Business Office of SK Telecom, the successful test marks a meaningful step towards commercialization of technologies for autonomous navigation of ships powered by 5G and the Korean telecom giant will continue to drive innovations in the manufacturing sector with the world’s best 5G network and technologies.

Although nothing concrete has been established, Mayor Sprague says the plans are in motion and the City has formally accepted the Brewer donation, with the understanding it will be used for the park… Aspen Park is a little over 2 acres, located on North Aspen Drive, in a multi-family neighborhood, with a small playground and picnic tables. Sprague: “We did have a meeting with the one individual, city manager and staff. And then Mr. Dixson and I met with the other individual and her attorney to talk about some financial issues and then we had another meeting with two residents and staff and the city manager and myself.” Mayor Pete Sprague previously told KSRM that two separate individuals have offered financial assistance for the project, including the generous donation from the estate of Martha Brewer. Sprague: “The parts and pieces are coming together and it will take time to get the finances squared away and the planning squared away and it’s not going to happen this fall but I am very confident that with council’s blessing, that we’ll get it together this winter and have it move forward in the spring.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A $55,000 donation may soon help the City of Soldotna turn Aspen Park into the city’s first official dog park.
