NAEP Results Show Lower Math Scores, Stagnant Reading Scores.

Several national media outlets have covered the latest National Assessment or Educational Progress results, generally focusing on stagnant or declining scores and low numbers of students deemed ready for college. The AP  (4/27, Kerr) reports that US high school seniors “are slipping in math, not making strides in reading and only about one-third are prepared for the academic challenges of entry-level college courses.” The scores show that only around 25% “performed proficiently or better in math,” while only 37% “were proficient or above in reading.” The AP says acting National Center for Education Statistics Commissioner Peggy Carr “said the report suggests a pattern in scores for reading that needs a deeper look,” quoting her saying, “There is a gap, a widening of a gap of higher and lower ability students, and I think that’s something we need to think about.” The AP reports that Education Secretary John King “says schools have undergone ‘some of the most significant changes in decades’ as teachers retool their classroom practices to adapt to new and higher standards.” The piece quotes King saying, “We know the results of those changes will not be seen overnight, so we need to be patient — but not passive — in continuing to pursue the goal of preparing all students for success after high school.”

Explaining that the NAEP is “an annual multiple choice test taken by thousands of randomly selected 12th grade students across the country,” the Christian Science Monitor  (4/27) reports “average reading and math scores slightly decreased from 2013.” Despite the dearth of movement in average scores, the results “reveal a widening gap between proficient and below-average students,” meaning “top-achieving students are scoring better and the struggling students are scoring worst.” Meanwhile, the Monitor reports that some observers now question the test’s relevance.

The Los Angeles Times  (4/26, Resmovits) reports that the scores among low performers declined, and says that Carr is worried about “the gap between students who tested well and those who tested poorly.” Meanwhile, though ELL students saw an increase in scores, “students with disabilities remained stagnant, and students who reported that their parents didn’t finish high school dropped by four points.”

Liana Heitin writes at the Education Week  (4/12) “Curriculum Matters” blog about the “striking detail” that “the lowest achievers showed large score drops in both math and reading,” with students “at or below the 10th percentile” seeing a six-point drop.

The Huffington Post  (4/28) reports that Carr said that the decline in the high school dropout rate could mean that more low-performing students wound up taking the NAEP, driving down scores. The piece quotes her saying, “Overall the drop out rates have improved. That means we have students who normally would not be there [but] are there.”

The CBS Evening News (4/27, story 11, 0:20, Pelley) reported the “nation’s report card” from the National Center for Education Statistics shows only 37 percent of 12th grade students are prepared for college in math and reading.

The NPR  (4/27) “NPR Ed” blog, the Politico  (4/27, Bade, Sherman) “Morning Education” blog, the Wall Street Journal  (4/27, Brody, Subscription Publication), Reuters  (4/27, Simpson), the Arkansas Democrat Gazette  (4/27), and US News & World Report  (4/27) also cover this story.

ED Unveils Student Loan Servicing Reform Initiatives.

The Washington Post  (4/28, Douglas-Gabriel) reports that ED has “unveiled a series of initiatives” aimed a fixing “the way the government collects payments on education loans, at a time when defaults are rising.” ED is working with other government agencies to “provide the 43 million Americans who carry $1.3 trillion in student debt more transparent information about the terms of their loans, account features and consumer protections.” The Post quotes Education Secretary John King saying, “We know costs are rising too fast and too many Americans are struggling to pay back their loans.” Meanwhile, the Administration “has given Americans more options for repaying their student debt so they can avoid default, expanding income-driven plans that require little to no money from people in dire straights.”

Study Examines State Cuts’ Impact On College Affordability.

The Higher Education Policy Institute, Vanderbilt University, and the University of Pennsylvania have collaborated on a study examining “how dwindling state investment in higher education and the subsequent rise in tuition has pushed college out of reach for low-income and middle-income families across the country.” Several papers are covering this study, mainly focused on how various states fared in the comparison of affordability. The Washington Post  (4/27, Douglas-Gabriel) reports, for example, that the study says that “Maryland provides some of the most economical college options in the country, but a series of policy changes dialing back financial support for the neediest students is endangering the ability of many families to afford higher education in the state.” The study ranks Maryland number six in affordability, but warns that “the state is losing ground.” Other media outlets covering this study include the Tennessean  (4/27), the Knoxville (TN) News Sentinel  (4/28), the Detroit News  (4/27), and the Harrisburg (PA) Patriot-News  (4/28).

Missouri’s Public Universities Halt Tuition Hikes In Exchange For $37M Funding Increase.

The AP  (4/27) reports that on Wednesday Gov. Jay Nixon (D-MO) signed a $1.3 billion spending plan “that will result in a tuition freeze at public universities.” University leaders agreed to the freeze in exchange for a $37 million boost to core funding, a four percent increase over last year. The AP notes this is the fourth year “since Nixon took office that universities agreed to halt tuition hikes.”

SpaceX Plans To Send “Red Dragon” Capsule To Mars In 2018.

The Washington Post  (4/27, Davenport) reports that on Wednesday, SpaceX announced on Twitter that it plans to land an unmanned “Red Dragon” spacecraft on Mars as early as 2018 in collaboration with NASA, “laying out an ambitious timeline for an incredibly difficult mission that only governments have dared try.” In a statement, NASA said it would provide “technical support,” but no financial support, for the Mars mission, and in return, SpaceX would provide “valuable entry, descent and landing data to NASA for our journey to Mars, while providing support to American industry.”

The Los Angeles Times  (4/27, Masunaga) explains that according to SpaceX, the mission aims to demonstrate a method of landing large-scale payloads on the Martian surface without parachutes or other aerodynamic decelerators. In a post on Twitter, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk “said the Dragon 2 spacecraft is designed to be able to land ‘anywhere in the solar system’ and that the Red Dragon Mars mission would be the first test flight.”

Meanwhile, USA Today  (4/27, Dean) notes that for manned missions to the Red Planet, SpaceX envisions a larger spacecraft than the Red Dragon “to give astronauts a comfortable ride on the roughly eight-month trip each way,” since the capsule only has the interior room of an SUV. Musk quipped on Twitter, “Wouldn’t be fun for longer journeys.”

Emerson Climate Tech Opens Innovation Center At Dayton University.

The Dayton (OH) Daily News  (4/27, Gnau) reports that on Wednesday Emerson Climate Technologies opened its $35 million Helix Innovation Center at the University of Dayton, which will be used to simulate weather conditions. Emerson Vice President Rajan Rajendran explained the building can control its indoor temperature and humidity, as well as the outdoor ambient temperature. Emerson group vice president for solutions and technology Bill Bosway indicated “the climate control industry needs help from academia and beyond to deal with…its ‘problems.’”

Researchers Develop Device That Binds Sperm In Vitro And In Vivo, Mouse Study Reveals.

The Scientist  (4/28, Azvolinsky) reports new research published in Science Translational Medicine shows that “researchers have created peptide-coated agarose beads that bind mouse sperm in vitro and in vivo, as well as human sperm in vitro.” Researchers at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) and their colleagues “coated inert beads with either mouse or human peptides of one of these glycoproteins, called ZP2, which is required for prefertilization sperm-oocyte interaction.” Using male mice expressing fluorescently tagged sperm, “the researchers observed that the complexes could attract and bind sperm both inside the uterine horns of female mice and in a dish in the presence of intact oocytes.”

FPL, FIU Unveil Solar Research Project.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel  (4/27) reports that under a five-year research grant from Florida Power & Light, students and faculty at Florida International University’s Energy, Power & Sustainability program will analyze data from the solar panels built over a university parking lot to understand how South Florida’s tropical climate affects solar energy production, according to an FPL release. The 1.4-megawatt array is part of a project that continues a three-decade-long partnership between FPL and FIU.

Bordoff: Driverless Cars Could Increase Emissions.

Jason Bordoff at Columbia University writes for the Wall Street Journal  (4/27, Bordoff) on the disadvantages of self-driving cars from an environmental standpoint. Although automation could deliver around 15 percent in fuel savings according to research by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the University of Maryland, Bordoff cautions that it would be premature to presume it will reduce oil use and carbon emissions. Automation may include increasing the total number of drivers, displacing public transportation, reducing fuel economy through increased speed limits, and market preference for larger vehicles, Bordoff writes.

Industry News

Samsung Reports Strong Earnings Boosted By Galaxy Sales.

Samsung Electronics reported its first quarter earnings Thursday morning, generating moderate coverage in the US that centered on the strong sales of the company’s Galaxy flagship smartphones in March. According to the AP  (4/27, Lee), Samsung reported earnings of 5.3 trillion won ($4.6 billion) – up 14% from 4.6 trillion won a year earlier and higher than the average analyst forecast of 4.7 trillion won – on sales of 49.8 trillion won ($43.4 billion), up 6% from the same period last year. The company’s operating profit rose 12% to 6.7 trillion won, largely matching the company’s earnings guidance in early April. Analysts say the early release of the company’s updated flagship Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge smartphones on March 11 contributed to the better-than-expected earnings, along with the company’s “pricing strategy” and the “absence of new products from competitors.” According to Counterpoint Technology Market Research estimates, Samsung sold 25 percent more Galaxy S7 series phones during the month of March – 10 million – than last year, which the AP reports caused Samsung’s mobile business to rake in record a “3.9 trillion won ($3.4 billion) in operating profit” or 42% more than the period last year. Reuters  (4/28, Lee) reports that Samsung expects its “solid performance” to continue in Q2, “led by steady earnings in the mobile and semiconductor businesses,” according to a company statement. Despite a 6% drop in operating profit for its chip division to 2.6 trillion won, Samsung expressed optimism about the division’s prospects in the next quarter. CNET News  (4/27, Musil), the Financial Times  (4/27, Wells, Subscription Publication), and ZDNet  (4/28, Mu-Hyun) offer similar coverage.

According to the Wall Street Journal  (4/27, Lee, Cheng, Subscription Publication), analysts are concerned that the company’s strong S7 series sales will fall off in Q2 as more rival phones become available and a stronger Korean won will unfavorably affect the company’s export earnings. Bloomberg News  (4/27, Lee) adds that investors are also worried about the smartphone market in general as companies “struggle to come up with a new must-have product that will entice consumers to replace their devices.” Global smartphone sales dropped by 3% in the January-March quarter this year for their “first-ever decline, according to Strategy Analytics.”

Engineering and Public Policy

Drone Traffic Control System Lauded.

Government Computer News  (4/27, Pomerleau) reports in continuing coverage about the FAA and NASA tests involving 22 drones across six different FAA test sites. NASA’s Safe Autonomous Systems Operations project manager Parimal Kopardekar said, “This test would not have been possible without the six FAA test sites – it was a collaborative effort to ensure a successful test.” Nevada Advanced Autonomous Systems Innovation Center chief engineer Richard C. Kelley said, “The software performed wonderfully, providing much-needed data and pointing toward open questions for the research community to address as we work to safely integrate unmanned aircraft into the National Airspace System.”

Senate Approves FAA Bill.

Engineering News-Record  (4/27, Ichniowski) reports as Congress works on the FAA re-authorization, “the Senate approved a measure that hikes airport construction grants a solid 12% but only for one year,” meanwhile, focus has shifted to the House, “where a six-year FAA measure has been in a holding pattern for weeks.” Legislation must be passed by Congress no later than July 15 in order to keep the FAA in operation. The article adds, “The Senate bill, approved on April 19 by an overwhelming 95-3 vote, barely qualifies as long term, extending only through Sept. 30, 2017.” Both the Senate and the House set measures related to drone regulation. The article reports Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) opposes a “provision that would expand Federal preemption of state and local drone laws.”

EPA Prepares Incentive Program Ahead Of Clean Power Plan Implementation.

The Hill  (4/27, Cama) reports that while the Clean Power Plan remains on hold, the Obama Administration is moving forward with a state incentive program that would give states credit for establishing certain renewable-energy or energy-efficiency projects before the climate regulation takes effect. The Clean Energy Incentive Program, “designed as a carrot to the Clean Power Plan’s stick,” is currently being reviewed by the White House Office of Management and Budget before it can be formally proposed the public.

Senate Democrats Introduce Climate Change Bond Bill.

The Hill  (4/27, Henry) reports that Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dick Durbin on Wednesday “introduced a bill to create a new climate change adaptation fund to be paid for through new federal bonds.” The bond program would provide up to $200 million annually for a Commerce Department grant program to fund climate change adaptation work around the country. “The bill is unlikely to find much support” in the Republican controlled Senate. The Los Angeles Times  (4/27) reports that the bonds are modeled after the World War II-era U.S. War Bonds program and Boxer “said having a dedicated funding source for the large-scale projects would increase their chance of getting built.”

Maine Governor Vetoes Solar Bill.

The AP  (4/27) reports Maine Gov. Paul LePage “has vetoed a bill that sought to modernize Maine’s policies on solar power.” The legislation “would change how solar customers are paid for their surplus power. Utilities would pay rates set by regulators instead of paying retail price.” The governor “has been skeptical of the bill but said earlier this week that he was working with Democrats on a potential bid to save it.” LePage “released a veto message Wednesday that says the legislation would increase energy costs for Maine businesses and households that can’t afford solar panels.”

Two Measures To Restrict Pentagon Alternative Energy Programs Fail To Advance.

The Hill  (4/27, Kheel) reports that Republicans took aim at the Pentagon’s energy initiatives Wednesday, but failed to advance two amendments that sought to reduce the programs. The amendments would have blocked the Pentagon from using funds to comply with two executive orders on climate change and required the Defense secretary to justify spending on alternative energy facilities.

McClatchy  (4/27, Doyle) reports “federal burdens dampen California’s hydroelectric power potential, PG&E and Turlock Irrigation District officials told lawmakers” on the House water, power, and oceans subcommittee Tuesday. “Summoned by House Republicans who hope to unleash more of what they called a ‘clean, renewable, and domestic energy resource,’ the two California utilities’ representatives described a regulatory thicket that can take many years and millions of dollars to navigate.” PG&E’s Debbie Powell said that “the processes are overly complex” and “needlessly expensive.” Powell told the lawmakers “that PG&E’s last 10 hydroelectric license renewals took between seven and 28 years and racked up associated costs from $2 million to over $20 million.” Rep. Jim Costa said, “Something’s got to be wrong with that part of the process.”

Elementary/Secondary Education

Reopened California Elementary School To Have STEAM Focus.

The Los Angeles Times  (4/27, Woolsey) reports that when Lake View Elementary School in Huntington Beach, California reopens in the fall, the campus “will have switched to a STEAM — science, technology, engineering, arts and math — focus.” When in class, “students will sit in groups, rather than at desks in rows, to facilitate creativity, collaboration and critical thinking, said Principal Jamie Goodwyn.” She explained that the school “wanted to change the look of learning and make sure students are getting 21st-century learning,” adding, for instance, that rather than having students read about photosynthesis in textbooks, teachers would be able to take students outside to directly observe the process at work.

Petition Asks Congress To Spend $250 Million On Expanding Computer Science Programs, Building Teacher Capacity.

Culture and education editor Liz Dwyer writes in Take Part  (4/27, Dwyer) about a petition put forward by Seattle-based nonprofit Code.org and the Computer Science Education Coalition asking Congress to allocate $250 million in federal funding for “every student in every school to have an opportunity to learn computer science.” Supporters of computer science believe it is “key to maintaining the nation’s economic edge” and point out it “also leads to the highest-paying, fastest-growing jobs in the US economy.” Yet critics have “suggested that the nation doesn’t need every child to learn computer science” and claim there is a lack of trained educators to teach computer science. Therefore, advocates say the $250 million should be spent on building teaching capacity and not on hardware.

Career And Technical Education Making A Comeback In US High Schools.

The AP  (4/26, Leff) reports career and technical (CTE) education is “making a comeback in many of the nation’s high schools.” California, Colorado and Louisiana are among states looking to “career pathways” that merge technical training and academics “built around an industry theme as a way to get more young people to pursue some post-secondary education.” Congress adopted an education bill last year that includes CTE education in the definition of a well-rounded K-12 education, and lawmakers are expected to this year “strengthen the federal law that provides about $1.1 billion a year for job training in grades 7-14.” Education experts say the renewed focus on CTE education would be a viable alternative to “exposing all students to the same college prep curriculum.” Yet some education experts fear integrating “career exploration with academics” could lead to a “new form tracking” that encourages “academically struggling” students to enter “separate academic programs that have watered-down expectations and watered-down instruction.”

Op-Ed: California Schools Should Teach Math Using Computer Science.

Harry Cheng, Professor and Director of the UC Davis Center for Integrated Computing and STEM Education (C-STEM), writes in EdSource  (4/27, Cheng) California has reached a tipping point where it has the tools and opportunity to enable all public schools to integrate computer science into their match and science curriculums. Cheng believes “all K-12 schools should provide computer science educations for all students in each grade level,” and teaching match with computer programming “can give mathematical concepts context and relevance while still requiring the same amount of rigor as traditional mathematics instruction.” The integration of computer programming can “further students’ local and critical thinking skills.” Over 200 schools have adopted and used C-STEM curriculum in their classroom teaching, “and the results have shown promise in closing the match achievement gap for schools with a large percentage of student subgroups that have historically lagged behind.”

ED Conference Discusses How Music Can Be Integrated With STEM Subjects.

The Washington Post  (4/26, Balingit) reports jazz composer and musical icon Herbie Hancock was among a group of educators and researchers Tuesday at the Education Department’s headquarters to discuss “how music can be better integrated into lessons on math, engineering and even computer science.” Education Secretary John King Jr. said arts education is being squeezed out of classrooms because of an emphasis placed on math, reading, and standardized testing, “a trend he believes is misguided.” King stated, “English and math are necessary but not sufficient for students’ long-term success,” while adding that under the new federal Every Student Succeeds Act, schools can fund arts education with new flexibility.

USA Today  (4/26, Toppo) reports that King “doubled down on his effort to support a well-rounded education for the USA’s schoolchildren, unveiling a curriculum that embeds music into math and science lessons for millions of kids.” King “brought in a large group of science, math and music educators, as well as legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, who said young people live in ‘a world that now, more than ever, needs more creativity and innovation and less anger and hostility to help solve the challenges that we have to deal with every single day — and those that we will be facing in the future.’” The launch of the new curriculum comes on the heels of King’s recent statements that NCLB “has, in many instances, robbed kids of a full, rich, well-rounded education.” The piece quotes King saying, “I think we have to acknowledge that at times, particularly over the last few years, the conversation about English and math, and closing the gaps in English and math, has led some to make the mistaken conclusion that what we need to do to close those gaps is to do less science, less social studies, less of the arts, socio-emotional learning, less time on world languages — and that’s exactly backwards.”

Public Citizen Writers Praise ED’s Push Against For-Profit Colleges’ Use Of Forced Arbitration.

In commentary for Politico  (4/26), Public Citizen’s Sonia Gill and Amanda Werner write about the efforts of ED and CFPB to rein in the practice of forced arbitration, saying that the “long-awaited moves are critical to protecting consumers from the worst practices by Big Business.” They call forced arbitration language in consumer contracts “rip-off clauses” and note several paragraphs in that ED recently “released a proposal to address the explosion of forced arbitration clauses used by the for-profit college industry.”

Obama Launches $100M H-1B Funded Program To Expand Free Community College.

Inside Higher Ed  (4/26, Smith) reports that on Monday the Obama Administration unveiled a $100 million, H-1B funded competition for America’s Promise Job-Driven Training Grants that aim “to help colleges create tuition-free education and job training programs in partnership with their business communities.” The article explains that “employers pay a fee to the H-1B visa program to employ foreign workers in jobs that require specialized or high skills,” providing revenue to the Labor Department.

NSF Grants Renton Tech $200K For Computer Network Architecture Program.

Competency-Based Education Programs Gaining Popularity In Texas.

Houston Public Media  (4/26, Isensee) reports on the increasing popularity of competency-based education programs in Texas, which purport to measure skills and knowledge rather than assessing learning in semesters and credit hours.

WGU responded that “it’s been reviewed by multiple groups before and passed inspection.”

Analysis: For Master’s In Engineering Degrees, Online Programs Increasingly Accepted.

US News & World Report  (4/26, Friedman) provides analysis of increasing acceptance of online Master’s in Engineering degrees, reporting engineering recruiters say “employers in the field of engineering have generally become accepting of online graduate degrees in the past few years…particularly as well-established universities have built up their programs – though a few employers would still favor the traditional student.” Modis President Jack Cullen said “online graduate programs in engineering have become more prevalent because…they enable engineers to work and pursue a degree at the same time – there’s no need to take a gap year to return to school.”

University Of Florida Hosts Mind-Controlled Drone Competition.

The Christian Science Monitor  (4/26) reports that the University of Florida held its first “brain-computer interface (BCI) drone competition last weekend,” at which 16 competitors “used brain monitors to propel small UAVs through a 10-yard sprint across a basketball court.” The event was “heralded as an achievement for the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platform, and other technologies powered by brain waves.” The “racers” used EEGs to transmit their brainwaves through a computer program into commands “the drones, hovering over the court, can understand.” Reuters  (4/26) also covers this story.

NSF Gives Montana State Researchers Grant To Build Research Data Network.

The Bozeman (MT) Daily Chronicle  (4/27) reports that the National Science Foundation has given researchers at Montana State University a $472,000 grant to make it possible “to more easily share work with other scientists around the globe” by building “a dedicated research data network on campus.” MSU Vice President for Information Technology Jerry Sheehan said, “This is a substantial investment by the federal government to improve our infrastructure so we can better share the discoveries by Montana State researchers nationally, internationally and across campus.”

NSF Gives University Of Rochester Photonics Research Grant.

WROC-TV  Rochester, NY (4/27) reports that the National Science Foundation has given the University of Rochester a $199,419 grant “to fund photonics research in partnership with Henrietta-based manufacturer SiMPore.” Researchers will use the grant to “optimize sensors that can detect small molecules, such as explosives or biohazards, and make the technology commercially available.”

DARPA Awards Contracts To Eight Companies For GXV-T Work.

In a Gizmodo  (4/26, Novak) blogpost, Matt Novak reports DARPA has awarded contracts to eight different organizations to work on its GXV-T next-generation fighting vehicle: Carnegie Mellon University, Honeywell, Leidos, Pratt & Miller, QinetiQ Inc., Raytheon BBN, Southwest Research Institute, and SRI International. Novak says the GXV-T concept video “looks like a straight-to-VHS battlebots movie from the 1990s,” and says its unclear whether the vehicles will be unmanned or not, but adds, “one has to imagine that part of the reason they’re less concerned about these things lacking armor might have to do with the fact that they’ll likely be driverless.” SlashGear  (4/26, Roston) reports the program seeks to produce vehicles that are both able to withstand modern weapons but that “reverse the trend” of increased weight, and will focus on the areas of: “Radically Enhanced Mobility,” “Survivability through Agility,” “Crew Augmentation,” and “Signature Management.”

Industry News

Apple Reports First Revenue Drop Since 2003 As iPhone Sales Flag.

Apple reported its second quarter financials Tuesday morning, generating significant coverage in traditional and tech media outlets. Results missed analyst predictions, and sales of the company’s flagship iPhone dropped for the first time, intensifying concerns about both the company’s future earnings and demand for smartphones overall. The AP  (4/26, Bailey) reports that the company sold 51 million iPhones in the period, or 10 million fewer year-on-year, resulting in the company’s “first drop in quarterly revenue in 13 years.” Still, it “managed to rack up $10.5 billion in profit” in Q2. Apple reported quarterly revenue of $50.6 billion, down 13% from $58 billion in the same period last year, with $6 billion coming “from online services, apps and other software” – a 20% increase in the sector from a year earlier. The company predicted “another revenue drop of 13 percent or more in the current quarter,” a forecast that “drove [Apple’s] stock price down 8 percent in extended trading” to $95.71 on Tuesday and wiped more than $46 billion off the company’s market valuation. In spite of the weak showing, Apple still managed to generate Q2 profits that analysts expect will exceed the combined earnings of peers Alphabet Inc., Facebook Inc., and Amazon.com Inc., the Wall Street Journal  (4/26, Wakabayashi, Subscription Publication) reports. Still, its iPad sales dropped for the ninth-straight quarter to 10.25 million from 12.6 million, a decline of 19%. CNN Money  (4/26, Goldman) adds that Mac sales dropped 12% from 4.6 million to 4 million.

According to Reuters  (4/26, Love, Tharakan), the company’s quarterly results missed Wall Street forecasts – including reported earnings per share of $1.90 compared to the average estimate of $2 per share (and $2.33 a year ago) and $50.56 billion in revenue compared to forecasts of $51.97 billion – though the company’s 51.2 million in iPhones sales beat analysts’ estimates of about 50 million devices. Apple said it will raise its capital return program via a 10% increase in the quarterly dividend to $0.57 per share from $0.52 and a $35 billion rise in its share buyback authorization to $175 billion, and predicted Q3 revenue of between $41 billion and $43 billion – missing analysts’ consensus estimate of $47.3 billion. Shares of Skyworks Solution, Qorvo, Broadcom, and NXP Semiconductors – all Apple suppliers – fell at least 1% on the news on Tuesday. According to Bloomberg News  (4/26, Alpeyev, Amano), other Apple suppliers’ shares sank in early trading in Asia Wednesday, including Taiyo Yuden Co. by as much as 5.1%, Alps Electric Co. by 5%, and Murata Manufacturing Co. by 5.2% on the Nikkei; and Catcher Technology Co. by 4.9%, Largan Precision Co. by 3.1%, Zhen Ding Technology Holdings Ltd. By 2.7%, and Pegatron Corp. by 2.3% in Taipei.

Bloomberg News  (4/26, Webb) reports that investors wonder “whether lackluster” iPhone sales “reflect a broader slowdown in the market for high-end smartphones” or a temporary slowdown “before the next upgrade frenzy,” though forecasts from Apple “suppliers such as Qualcomm Inc. and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.” indicate that “demand is cooling, and stalled economic growth in China is paring Apple’s sales in that region.” Bloomberg adds that the Q2 report shows that Apple can no longer “count on China as a growth engine” – sales there, in Taiwan, and in Hong Kong collectively dropped 26%. Apple blamed the drop primarily on “lower sales in Hong Kong, where the local currency peg with the U.S. dollar made products more expensive to visitors.”

Lockheed Martin Q1 Profits Fall Due To Charges As Sales Grow 16%.

Lockheed Martin issued its first quarter earnings Tuesday, reporting profits of $794 million during its first quarter of 2016, or $2.58 per share, down from $878 million, or $2.74 per share, last year. The Wall Street Journal  (4/26, Cameron, Beilfuss, Subscription Publication) reports that Lockheed Martin announced first quarter 2016 earnings of $794 million, compared to $878 million during the same time last year. in that the decline was due to charges that followed job reductions, particularly a 1,000-job voluntary buyout of US employees, which shaved 21 cents off of the company’s per-share earnings. Lockheed’s revenue grew 16% to $11.70 billion, however, beating expectations of $11.34 billion. Aeronautics sales grew 21% to $3.80 billion, primarily due to new sales from the F-35 program and C-130 deliveries. Meanwhile, mission systems segment revenue grew 52% percent as the company incorporated sales from Sikorsky Corp., which was purchased for $9 billion in 2015. Sales at the company’s information systems and space systems segments fell during the quarter. Lockheed increased its full-year guidance from $11.45 to $11.75 per share to $11.50 to $11.80 per share based on slightly higher revenue predictions. Reuters  (4/26, Ajmera) adds that following the report, shares climbed up to 2.2 percent during morning trading, with smaller rival companies such as Raytheon and Northrop Grumman increasing 1 percent as well.

The improved forecast, according to Bloomberg News  (4/26, Johnsson), offers “a glimpse” into the company’s future as it completes “a spate of dealmaking.” First-quarter margins were down in all business units, with overall margins falling from 13.4 percent to 11.1 percent, which are said to have been “squeezed” by the technical issues delaying the F-35. Defense Daily  (4/26, Biesecker) wrote that after the charges, earnings missed consensus estimates by $0.01. Lockheed’s chairman, president, and CEO Marillyn Hewson said Sikorsky’s integration is “progressing well” and that “cost reduction and efficiency opportunities” are expected to continue presenting themselves. The company delivered six F-35s during the quarter, but will provide another 47 before the end of the year, according to CFO Bruce Tanner.

Inside Defense  (4/26, Censer) reports that Hewson also said that with the end of the US government’s antitrust review, the “only remaining review of competitive impact” for the company’s merger of its IT services line with Leidos is the United Kingdom. Tanner added that the deal remains scheduled for completion at the end of the year, while Hewson said the management team at its IS&GS division has been making sure the company’s cost structure “is in line with the business space.”

Engineering and Public Policy

Tribe To Meet With Official Over Dakota Access Pipeline Concerns.

The AP  (4/26) reports that members of the Standing Rock Sioux plan to meet with a US Army Corps of Engineers official on Friday to “express their concerns” over Energy Transfer Partners’ $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline which would “carry crude from North Dakota’s Bakken oil fields to Illinois.” Tribal officials oppose the pipeline because “they fear an oil spill could contaminate drinking water on the reservation.” Regulators in all states approved the project, though it still awaits approval from the US Army Corps of Engineers.

FBI Will Not Reveal Method Used To Hack iPhone.

The Washington Post  (4/26, Nakashima) reports “officials familiar with the discussion” say the FBI “intends to tell the White House this week that its understanding of how a third party hacked the iPhone of a shooter in San Bernardino, Calif., is so limited that there’s no point in undertaking a government review of whether the tool should be shared with Apple.” While the FBI “paid more than $1 million for a tool to crack” the iPhone, the officials said the contract “did not include rights to the software flaws that went into the tool” and, as a result, “the bureau has a limited technical understanding of how the method worked.” FBI Director Comey “acknowledged the internal debate” Tuesday, telling a cyber conference at Georgetown University, “The threshold is: Are we aware of the vulnerability, or did we just buy a tool and don’t have sufficient knowledge of the vulnerability that would implicate the process?” The Wall Street Journal  (4/26, Barrett, Subscription Publication) says the decision is likely to mean Apple will remain uninformed about security gaps that exist on some of its phones.

Elementary/Secondary Education

Businesses, Governors Call On Congress To Boost Funding For Computer Science.

The Washington Post  (4/26, Brown) reports that “dozens of the nation’s top businesses” and a coalition of 27 governors are pushing Congress “to help provide computer science education in all K-12 schools, arguing that the United States needs far more students who are literate in the technologies that are transforming nearly every industry.” The parties are concerned that the US “could lose its competitive edge without significant efforts to boost computer science” education, and the governors say “they see teaching coding and programming as a way to draw middle-class jobs to their states.” Meanwhile, “dozens of school system superintendents and nonprofit leaders say they see computer science courses as essential for giving children the skills they’ll need to be successful in the modern economy.”

The Hill  (4/26, Trujillo) reports that “dozens of technology companies” are part of the effort, which comes “along with $48 million in private donations announced Tuesday to help the cause from companies like Google, Microsoft, AT&T and tech leaders such as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.”

Utah Aerospace Pathways Program Expands To Another County.

The St. George (UT) Spectrum  (4/26) reports Gov. Gary Herbert has “announced the expansion of the Utah Aerospace Pathway program to the Iron County School District.” Herbert said, “There are 20,000 jobs for 100 different companies involved in aerospace in Utah. This program is going to provide opportunities for young people to get the skills in high school so they can work in the aerospace industry.”

University Of The District Of Columbia To Host Tech Program For Minority Middle School Boys.

The Washington Post  (4/26, Stein) reports that the Verizon Minority Male Makers Program, a new technology education program at the University of the District of Columbia, “will help 100 minority middle school boys learn 3-D modeling and app development and will expose them to future career opportunities in the tech sector.” The program is “a free, four-week summer boot camp to Washington, aiming to give rising sixth- through eighth-graders in the District’s schools a chance to get a boost in areas in which they are widely underrepresented.”

Vaughn College Wins 2016 VEX Worlds Robotics Championship.

The Louisville (KY) Courier-Journal  (4/26) reports the Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology Robotics Team “defeated 60 other college teams and was named world champion at the 2016 VEX Worlds robotics competition in Louisville.” The competition, held at the Kentucky Exposition Center last week, “received recognition from Guinness World Records as the largest robotics event ever, with 1,075 elementary, middle, high school and college teams competing. Twenty of those teams represented schools from Kentucky.”

University Of Washington Researchers Say Stereotyping Keeps Girls Away From STEM.

Allison Master of the University of Washington’s Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences, Sapna Cheryan of the UW Department of Psychology, and Andrew Meltzoff of the UW Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences write in the Washington Post  (4/26) that “despite valiant efforts to recruit more women, the gender gap” in STEM fields “is not getting any better,” and “stereotypes are a powerful force driving girls away from these fields. Even though stereotypes are often inaccurate, children absorb them at an early age and are affected by them. … To make a real difference, we need to change the messages we send to young girls and boys…and we must start early before societal stereotypes take hold.”

White House Unveils $100 Million Worker Training Grant Program Modeled On Tennessee Promise.

The Memphis (TN) Commercial Appeal  (4/25, Collins) reports the White House on Monday unveiled “a new $100 million grant program to expand worker training as the administration works to make good on President Barack Obama’s offer of two years of tuition-free community college.” According to the Commercial Appeal, America’s College Promise “was patterned after Gov. Bill Haslam’s Tennessee Promise scholarship program and is projected to cost $60 billion over the next 10 years.” The program’s “goal is to make sure that workers are equipped with the skills they will need to pursue careers in high-demand jobs such as technology, manufacturing and health care.”

The Washington Post  (4/25, Douglas-Gabriel) reports the initiative was announced Monday by Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden, who have “advocated for the model, visiting schools and hosting roundtable discussions with elected officials as well as college and business leaders.” The Labor Department will administer the grants, given to “partnerships between employers, training programs, and community and technical colleges aimed at readying students for skilled occupations.”

Catherine Gewertz writes at the Education Week  (4/25) “High School and Beyond” blog that the program will kick off this summer, and will be funded by Labor’s H-1B visa program. The Bidens made the announcement at the Community College of Philadelphia, “which created a free community college program last year, in response to Obama’s push to make community college free.” EdSource  (4/25) also covers this story.

$600 Million Cash Infusion May Be Too Late For Illinois Colleges.

The Washington Post  (4/25, Douglas-Gabriel) reports that the Illinois legislature has agreed to “funnel $600 million into the state’s public colleges and universities to keep them afloat through the summer,” but reports that “it may be too late to reverse some of the damage” wrought by 10 months of state funding drought brought on by a budget impasse between Gov. Bruce Rauner and the state legislature. The resulting shutoff of state money caused “layoffs and credit downgrades, and threatened to shutter at least one school.”

The Chicago Tribune  (4/25, Geiger) reports that lawmakers hope their funding bill “will keep campuses open through the summer while the broader budget battle continues,” noting that some stakeholders see the deal as “a funding cut for higher education while others tried unsuccessfully to add money for struggling social service programs.”

Texas Community College Engineering Program Sees Sharp Growth.

The Houston Chronicle  (4/25, Rose) reports that the engineering program at San Jacinto College, a two-year college in Houston, has grown from 29 students to nearly 300 over the past two years, “demonstrating the surge of interest in the career field and the need for a strong community college option.” The program started off with a focus on mechanical engineering, but has expanded “to accommodate other areas of engineering, such as chemical, industrial, civil, petroleum and biomedical.”

ED To Create Unified Web Portal For Student Loan Borrowers.

US News & World Report  (4/25, Powell) reports on ED’s recent announcement of “its plan to create a single Web portal for federal student loan borrowers – a move to make payments easier.” ED says that the portal “isn’t expected to be rolled out anytime soon,” but when it is, “borrowers will be redirected to a single portal to pay their student debt.” The piece quotes Under Secretary Ted Mitchell saying in a blog post, “Our goal is to build a new state-of-the-art loan servicing system – one that creates incentives and guidelines that support a more user-friendly single online loan management platform.”

ED Pushes Accreditors To Focus On Student Outcomes, Troubled Colleges.

Inside Higher Ed  (4/25) reports that on Friday ED issued guidance calling on accreditors “to focus more on enforcing standards that measure student achievement and to consider additional scrutiny for colleges with significant problems.” The article calls the guidance part of the Administration’s efforts “to encourage accreditors to tighten up in their role as gatekeepers for federal financial aid.” The piece quotes Under Secretary Ted Mitchell saying, “Today, the department clarified that accreditors have not only the flexibility but the responsibility to focus their resources on the institutions that present the greatest risk. The department’s guidance states the basis for this flexibility and identifies the statutory and regulatory criteria the department believes contribute significantly to effective monitoring.”

Ford, Others Explore New Manufacturing Roles For 3D Printers.

The Wall Street Journal  (4/25, Chao, Subscription Publication) reports that automakers, including Ford, are testing a new 3D printing technology that “could solve a structural flaw that has kept the technology from widespread use in manufacturing.” Carbon3D Inc., which is backed by Google Ventures, has developed printers that “project light continuously through a pool of resin, gradually solidifying it onto an overhead platform that slowly lifts the object up until it is fully formed,” forming parts more closely resembling “those created using conventional auto-part molds.” The auto industry is looking for ways 3D printing could save tooling expenses but it remains too time consuming to print parts, negating any cost reductions. A MHI and Deloitte survey found that 14% use 3D printing technology currently “but 48% expect to adopt the technology within the next decade,” while research firm Gartner predicts “world-wide sales of 3-D printers will reach almost $4 billion next year, up from $406 million in 2012.”

Engineering and Public Policy

Senate Making “Good Progress” On Energy Funding Bill.

The Hill  (4/25, Carney) reports Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell “is moving the Senate toward wrapping up its first appropriations bill of the year.” On Monday, McConnell filed cloture “on the energy funding bill and a key substitute amendment. The move sets up an initial procedural vote for Wednesday, unless lawmakers can get a deal to speed up their work.” Senate leadership hopes “to clear the energy and water appropriations bill through the upper chamber this week.” Sen. Lamar Alexander said yesterday that “good progress” is being made on the legislation.

In its the “Week Ahead” The Hill  (4/25, Henry) reports “the fiscal 2017 bill would increase funding $355 million over 2016 levels, with a $1.163 billion increase for the Department of Energy’s defense-related programs and an $808 million decrease for the nondefense portions of the bill, including other DOE programs and the Army Corps of Engineers.”

The “Morning Energy” blog of Politico  (4/25, Debenedetti) reported yesterday morning that House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy hadn’t, “as of Friday, scheduled any floor time for the House’s version.”

Senate To Consider Amendment To Fund Wind Energy. E&E News PM  (4/25, Subscription Publication) reports that the Senate this week is looking to capitalize on bipartisan efforts to pass the $37.5 billion fiscal 2017 energy and water development spending bill. The Senate will vote on an amendment by Sens. Jeff Merkley and Chuck Grassley to add $95 million for wind energy. Last week senators approved an amendment offered by Sens. Al Franken and Heidi Heitkamp that would boost funds for tribal loan guarantees by $9 million. “It’s unclear how many additional amendments will see votes, but [Energy and Water Development Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Lamar Alexander] and subcommittee ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) last week said they expected to be finished with the bill early in the week.”

House, Senate Split On ITER, Fusion Funding. Science Magazine  (4/25, Cho) compares the House and Senate DOE budgets. This week the full Senate is expected to approve a $5.4 billion budget for DOE’s Office of Science that would eliminate support for ITER in France and trim domestic fusion research. A House panel has proposed continuing to fund ITER and fusion but cutting biological and environmental research. Observers have been warning that the U.S. commitment to ITER “has been squeezing other DOE basic research programs.” Michael Lubell, a lobbyist with the American Physical Society thinks that it’s unlikely the US will pull out of ITER and “expects the final numbers for individual programs to be closer to the House’s version.”

Proposed Underwater Transmission Line Would Link Upstate Nuclear, Wind To New York City.

The Syracuse (NY) Post-Standard  (4/25) reports that Toronto-based OneGrid Corp. will begin seeking approval for a $1.5 billion “260-mile underwater transmission line along the Erie Canal and Hudson River to carry electricity from Upstate nuclear plants, wind farms and other generators to New York City.” The Empire State Connector “could improve the financial outlook for Upstate nuclear plants and wind farms, which are expected to be important for the success of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s plan to reduce carbon emissions 40 percent by 2030.”

Sierra Club Challenges Permit For APS Power Plant Overhaul Citing Excessive Emissions.

The Arizona Republic  (4/25, Randazzo) reports that the Sierra Club “filed an appeal to the air-quality permit for the natural-gas plant overhaul in Tempe that Arizona Public Service Co. is undertaking.” APS wants to close part of the Ocotillo Power Plant and replace it with more powerful and efficient generators, but the Sierra Club “is opposed to how APS would operate the new generators at the plant, which could result in carbon-dioxide emissions akin to a coal-fired power plant, the group said.”

Pentagon Aims To Reduce Energy Costs, Fuel Vulnerabilities.

The Hill  (4/25, Kheel) reports on the Pentagon’s wide-ranging energy initiatives which include reducing the weight of equipment batteries soldiers carry, replacing light bulbs in stateside buildings, and putting solar panels on forward operating bases. Amanda Simpson, deputy assistant secretary of Defense for operational energy, said, “We are contributing less greenhouse gases per operation, but they are not the driving effort,” pointing to the vulnerability of fuel convoys in Iraq and Afghanistan. All new acquisition programs have to take energy into account, Simpson said.

Elementary/Secondary Education

Court Rejects Religious Challenge To Next Generation Science Standards.

Education Week  (4/25, Walsh) reports in its “Curriculum Matters” blog a three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit upheld a lower court’s ruling that Citizens for Objective Public Education (COPE), which objects to science standards developed by the National Research Council and the Next Generation Science Standards and adopted by the Kansas State Board of Education, which the group says establishes a non-religious worldview, did not have standing to bring the suit. The court said that, as school districts could ignore the state standards or develop curricula teaching alternatives to origin theories, any legal theories were speculative. Also, without ruling on the merits of COPE’s claim, the court noted that US Supreme Court struck down a law requiring “creation science” be taught beside evolution

Robotics Teams Going To FIRST World Championship.

The Boston Globe  (4/25, Bagni) reports the Stormgears 5422 team and their robot are headed for the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition World Championship. While their 29th-place in the district tournament wouldn’t alone allow them to advance, the team “won the Engineering Inspiration Award for their community outreach efforts getting more kids involved in robotics, engineering, and other STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) activities.”

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls (IA) Courier  (4/26, Wind) reports Denver High School’s FIRST Tech Challenge robotics team will participate in the FIRST World Championship after winning “the first place Inspire Award at its league qualifier, the Iowa championships and at the 13-state north super regional.” Despite note being “part of the winning alliance in any of its robotics competitions, the award recognizes students’ work on their robot, and efforts to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics.”

Jefferson City, Missouri Public Schools Enhancing Career-Oriented Learning.

The Jefferson City (MO) News Tribune  (4/25, Rowe) reports Jefferson City, Missouri Public Schools “evolved its teaching approach so the curriculum is relevant to careers and current events” by adding real-world applications that cater “to more students’ interests and gets them ready for the working world.” JCPS staff called career-oriented learning “the education style of the future,” in the words of the News Tribune, and the schools “added more career-integrated options by adopting Project Lead the Way curriculum and adding the academies” and already offered the Nichols Career Center. The students have the chance to work with local businesses and learn skills and problem solving that will help them in their careers.

Illinois Legislature Passes $600 Million Higher Education Funding Bill.

The Chicago Sun-Times  (4/22, Sfondeles) reports the creation of a new specialized education fund, derived from “income tax revenue,” has made it possible for the Illinois legislature to vote almost unanimously to approve a bill that continues to fund the state’s universities and community colleges. The bill provides $600 million in funding to “stem the financial crisis” within the state’s higher education system, as well as “$160 million in tuition grants for low-income students.” Senate Republican leader Christine Radogno said, “Every bit of spending in this bill is paid for – both Higher Ed and Human Services. That is the model we are trying to achieve. That is the sort of reset in budgeting we need for this state.”

Washington State Colleges Step Up Computer Science Programs.

The Seattle Times  (4/23, Long) reported Washington State colleges “are finding it hard to keep up with a fast-growing appetite for computer-science courses” and are stepping up their programs. At Western Washington University, “the clamor for computer-science classes is so strong that the school this month sent a letter to 150 potential transfer students, warning them they may have to wait a year before they can start taking courses in the subject.” Bellevue College is also likely to add a computer science major.

Students Compete In Shell Eco-Marathon In Detroit.

The Detroit Free Press  (4/24, Bethencourt) reports the Shell Eco-Marathon took place in Detroit Sunday, with “more than 1,000 students from 100 universities and high schools across North and South America” competing to “see whose vehicle could use the least amount of energy while also maintaining a minimum speed.” WXYZ-TV  Detroit (4/25) also covers this story.

Washington State Legislature Said To Be Underfunding Community And Technical Colleges.

Public Urged To Change Attitudes Regarding Women In Architecture.

In a Los Angeles Times  (4/22, Stratigakos) op-ed, University at Buffalo interim chair of architecture Despina Stratigakos writes, “Architecture remains a tough profession for women to crack.” While “nearly half of architecture school graduates are women, only 18% of licensed practitioners are women. Confronted with lower salaries, given fewer career-building opportunities and lacking mentors, female architects leave the field in disturbingly high numbers.” The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture “has an important role to play” in improving this, and “public attitudes also need to change.”

Energy Job Opportunities For Women Expected To Grow.

The Houston Chronicle  (4/22, Sweeten) reports that 1.3 million new job opportunities are projected to be created in the oil, natural gas, and petrochemical industries by 2030, with women expected to fill 185,000 of those positions, according to Oilonline.com. Of these, women will fill 70,000 “engineering, management, and other professional roles.” The Women’s Energy Network, through a partnership with the American Petroleum Institute, has seen a increase in college students majoring in STEM-related fields. Still, “economic projections indicate 2.4 million STEM jobs could be unfilled by 2018.”

The Washington Post  (4/22, Brown) reports that in its second year, My Brother’s Keeper, President Obama’s “initiative to improve the lives and prospects of boys and young men of color” has “helped galvanize $600 million in private donations, according to a progress report the administration released Friday.” The program has enlisted over “240 communities, including one in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as Puerto Rico,” establishing “local teams to identify opportunity gaps for males of color and come up with plans to address them.” Administration officials “say they believe that the work of My Brother’s Keeper will outlive the Obama presidency.” Education Secretary John King said in an interview, “I think we’ll continue to see progress in the next administration to try to create better alternatives to the pattern of mass incarceration that we’ve seen.”

McCain Calls For DOJ Investigation Into EPA.

The Hill  (4/23, Neidig) “Ballot Box” blog cites the AP in reporting Sen. John McCain is calling for a “criminal investigation into the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) over a hazardous mine spill last summer.” During a hearing in Phoenix on Friday, McCain said, “What is clear now is that not enough has been done … I’ve come to the conclusion that a [Justice Department] criminal investigation is merited and must now occur.”

Pipeline Coalition Urges President Obama To Allow Pipeline To Proceed.

A Des Moines (IA) Register  (4/23, Wiederstein) opinion piece from chairman of the Midwest Alliance for Infrastructure Now (MAIN) Coalition Ed Wiederstein argued tactics from environmental groups opposed to the Dakota Access Pipeline “is not new,” and that they are seeking to derail the final permitting process by “attempt[ing] to throw up roadblocks in the form of protests and calling into question the validity of environmental reviews completed by the individual states and project.” Wiederstein indicated MAIN coalition members sent a letter to President Obama “to urge his administration to allow the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to complete their duties to fully review and issue a decision on the Dakota Access Pipeline.”

Texas Congress Members Ask EPA To Reject Texas Smog Plan.

The Dallas Morning News  (4/22) reported that two Texas lawmakers are asking the EPA “to reject the state’s current plan for reducing smog-causing and health-damaging ozone,” claiming that it does little to address those issues. “If the state will not negotiate in good faith,” the elected officials and a coalition of environmental groups have asked the EPA to implement a federal plan. The article notes that the Dallas area has been out of compliance with ozone standards since 1991, and that “although ozone pollution has declined, it hasn’t kept up with increasingly lower federal standards and research has shown that ozone exacerbates respiratory problems at smaller concentrations.”

Michigan Senators Urge EPA To Intervene On Air Quality Issues.

The Detroit Free Press  (4/22, Spangler) reports that Michigan’s US Senators issued a letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy “asking her agency to implement a plan for reducing sulfur dioxide and other pollutants in Wayne County if the state of Michigan does not do so in the next two months.” Sens. Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow said the EPA must intervene because “the crisis in Flint has damaged trust in the state agency.” The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality says it plans to submit a plan to the EPA next month.

Loveless: Solar Industry, Utilities Can Partner In Changing Power Sector.

Bill Loveless writes for USA Today  (4/24) on a deal between New York utilities and SolarCity, SunPower, and SunEdison “that would make them partners rather than rivals in the changing power sector.” The Solar Progress Partnership was a result of discussions among the participants and state officials facilitated by the nonprofit Advanced Energy Economy Institute. Loveless quotes SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive as saying of the debate between the solar industry and the utility industry, “The biggest cause of the debate is not recognizing a lot of the benefits that solar provides to the grid.”

New York Town Plans Wind Farm Restrictions.

The Buffalo (NY) News  (4/24, Prohaska) reports that the Yates Town Board in New York “is likely to pass a law restricting construction of wind power projects.” In surveys, area landowners “have shown solid opposition” to Apex Clean Energy’s proposed wind projects in Somerset and Yates. The Yates measure is modeled on one passed in Somerset two months ago and “prohibits wind power development in the waterfront revitalization area near the lakeshore and requires developers to reimburse property owners who sell their homes because of the wind project if they can’t obtain a sale price equal to the value set by an appraiser.” A vote is expected Friday.

Federal Court Rejects Kansas Group’s Bid To Block Science Curriculum.

Yahoo! Tech  (4/24, Chang) reports the tenth US Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver rejected a claim by the Citizens for Objective Public Education, a religiously oriented group, to block Kansas from implementing the Next Generation Sciences Standards (NGSS), which it said constitutes a form of “religious indoctrination.” COPE said NGSS’s “failure to include a religious basis for the origins of life and the universe makes the curriculum unsuitable for the classroom.” The court concluded the organization failed to “offer any facts to support the conclusion that the Standards condemn any religion or send a message of endorsement.” The ruling therefore upheld a lower court’s ruling on the case.

Father And Son Volunteer As FIRST Employee Mentors For Connecticut High School.

The New Britain (CT) Herald  (4/24, Wayne) reports on Ted and Andrew Hall, a father and son who have worked at Pratt & Whitney as a respective turbine project manager and support equipment fleet manager, became employee mentors for their local school’s FIRST robotics team. When he was young, Andrew Hall learned about the robot development process and using computer-aided design software. He continued working with the team “throughout his high school career, learning more about” technologies. His father served as an employee mentor to his son’s team, and 14 years later, Andrew Hall “became an employee mentor with FIRST.” Both Halls volunteer with the Berlin High School Techno Nuts and have helped them make “it through a number of qualifying events” to compete in the FIRST Robotics New England District Championship.
