  • $101,091: Average annual compensation for Milwaukee teachers

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3/6/11 | John McCormack
    The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel confirms that's how much the average Milwaukee teacher will be paid in salary and benefits in 2011: the average MPS teacher would receive total compensation of $101,091 -- $59,500 in salary and $41,591 in benefits. We double-checked with MPS spokeswoman Roseann St. Aubin and she confirmed the figures. We wanted to compare the $101,091 for MPS teachers to other teachers, but the latest figurescompiled by the state Department of Public Instruction are for 2009-2010, two years earlier. Those figures show for 2009-2010, MPS teachers earned, on average

    IBM has announced its fifth annual Next Five in Five – a list of five technologies that the company believes “have the potential to change the way people work, live and play over the next five years.” While there are no flying cars or robot servants on the list, there are holographic friends, air-powered batteries, personal environmental sensors, customized commutes and building-heating computers.3D telepresence It may not be a flying car, but it’s definitely one we’ve seen in sci-fi movies before – the ability to converse with a life-size holographic image of another person in real time.

    The (Still) Missing Social Security Annual ReportIt was supposed to come out April 1. Why it most likely won't come out until the end of the fiscal year. Jagadeesh Gokhale and Mark J. Warshawsky, 07.12.10, 12:43 PM EDT The Social Security's trustees' annual report is, by law, supposed to be published by April 1. This year, however, the trustees have postponed its release indefinitely. The program's financial condition continues to remain hidden from public view--and by many accounts will continue to be so until the end of the fiscal year. The program's cash flow has been in the red for...

    I posted recently about the Baucus Obamacare bill, and noted that, unlike the other bills floating around Congress, this one doesn’t have the word “affordable” in its title. Based upon what follows, the absence of the word “affordable” is more than understandable.

    A former military friend of mine sent this info. I retrieved the attached report. Yet another glaring example of the devious, malicious ways that the media and a good deal of our so-called leaders mislead the American public; and we get what we deserve, because we let them get away with doing so on a continuous basis. TD These are some rather eye-opening facts: Since the start of the war on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan, the sacrifice has been enormous. In the time period from the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 through now, we have lost over 3000...

    PRESIDENTIAL NEWS OF THE DAY: President and Mrs. Bush attended St. John's Church this morning, as is their custom when spending the weekend at the White House. Last night they attended the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner, where the President and his "alter ego," comedian Steve Bridges, stole the show. The best review I found is on USA Today's website. Since I'm not sure how much of their material we can excerpt, I'll just provide a link. The article includes a nearly complete transcript of the President's and Mrs. Bridges routine. LINK TO USA TODAY CORRESPONDENTS' DINNER REVIEW

    Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Ariz. (Nov. 25, 2005) -- In the fall of 1947, a woman named Diane handcrafted a Raggedy Ann doll and asked her husband, then-Marine Corps Reserve Major William Hendricks, to deliver the doll to an organization that would give it to a needy child on Christmas. When Hendricks told his wife that no organization existed, she suggested that he start one. That year, the project was so successful that the Marine Corps adopted Toys for Tots in 1948 and expanded it into a nationwide campaign, according to the Toys for Tots Web site. Since, each...

His popping moves, gyrating hips and captivating smile prompted laughter from the crowd as he unconsciously danced to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller.' He tossed his hat to the side, flared his leg, popped his hips and stood on his toes. He smiled into the audience he didn't realize was there. The hypnotized victims of Paul LeBlanc's demonstration were guests at the depot's annual Marine Corps Community Services-sponsored Bayfest 2005, Saturday.

    Spivey's Corner ready to holler SPIVEY'S CORNER, N.C. — For the 37th year, people from all over the world are converging on a small North Carolina town to hear a nearly lost art: hollerin'. About 3,000 people are expected for the contest today. The winner receives a trophy and the recognition of being the champion hollerer. The Annual National Hollerin' Contest raises funds for the town's all-volunteer fire department. But, equally important, it preserves what contest chairman Wayne Edwards calls a North Carolina "oddity." Edwards says hollerin' was Eastern North Carolina's first form of communication. He says people were identified...

    NEW YORK, NY. (Nov. 24) - Will the sky fall on Chicken Little? Rain and strong gusts could ground that doom-saying worrywart - one of three additions to this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade - and 14 other helium-filled balloons, organizers said yesterday. A cold front is expected to enter the New York metropolitan region tomorrow, bringing sustained winds of 10 to 20 miles an hour and gusts of 30 or more miles an hour, said two meteorologists, Jeff Warner of Pennsylvania State University and Brett Zweiback of Metro Weather Service, a company in Valley Stream, N.Y.

    CHESTERTON, Ind. (AP) - Two top Munchkins won't be taking the Yellow Brick Road to Chesterton's annual Oz Festival this month because of a contract dispute. Jerry Maren, who played the Lollipop Kid in "The Wizard of Oz," and Karl Slover, who played the First Trumpeter in the 1939 musical, have been regular attendees at past festivals in the town about 15 miles east of Gary. But the two former Munchkins were "disinvited" this year following a flap over their agent's request that organizers pay his travel expenses, said Karen Spallina, president of Lakeshore Festival and Events. Two other former...
