Smalling has become a popular figure in Serie A after an impressive season on loan at Italian giants Roma. But the coronavirus crisis has forced them to reconsider their summer transfer plans and a deal for the 30-year-old may prove out of their price range, with the club facing financial difficulties. As a result, Smalling is expected return to Old Trafford in the summer, according to The Sun.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTRead the latest updates: Coronavirus news liveA source told The Sun: ‘We know Chris would love to stay and it is a deal which suits all parties at the end of the season.‘The financial reality, however, is very different.

Gov. Wolf Visits Students at Robotics Competition, Touts PAsmart Investments

first_img Education,  Press Release,  Workforce Development Bethlehem, PA – Governor Tom Wolf touted the importance of science and technology education while visiting Pennsylvania student teams competing in the FIRST Robotics Competition Mid-Atlantic Championship at Lehigh University. Dozens of teams from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware will vie for regional awards and the chance to move on to the national championship using robots they designed and built.“I wish all of the students in this regional robotics competition good luck this weekend. These teams and their robots show what Pennsylvanians can accomplish when given the opportunity,” said Governor Wolf. “There is no doubt that science and technology education are vital to our economic future. That is why last year I launched the groundbreaking PAsmart initiative to strategically invest in increased access to computer science and STEM education.“We also know that nearly every new job will require a person to use a computer in some way. By creating a more tech savvy workforce we can help Pennsylvania businesses to expand and power startups to grow into global corporations. But it all starts by making science and technology education a priority in our schools.”The student teams will compete over the next three days by remotely controlling robots through unpredictable terrain and weather patterns on the Planet Primus. Teams have only two minutes and thirty seconds to collect cargo and prepare their spaceships for departure before the next sandstorm arrives.To increase high-quality computer science and STEM education in elementary, middle, and high schools, and professional development for teachers, the Wolf administration recently awarded the first-ever PAsmart grants of nearly $20 million. The funding is expanding opportunities at 765 schools across the commonwealth and will bolster CS/STEM camps and after-school programs; support for diversity and inclusion on esports teams in high-need areas; STEM programming for preK-2 students and classrooms; and a mobile fabrication lab where students gain hands-on experience in coding and robotics.This year, the governor is proposing an additional $10 million for PAsmart to expand career and technical education for adults as well as job training programs at companies to enhance the skills of Pennsylvania workers.“Pennsylvania is among the national leaders in STEM and technology education, but we must keep pushing forward,” said Governor Wolf. “These students have created amazing robots but imagine what advances will happen over their lifetimes and careers. Whether they’re going to a trade school or college, all students need a solid foundation with these skills.”Qualifying matches for the FIRST Robotics Competition Mid-Atlantic Championship continue at Stabler Arena through Saturday morning and final round matches are Saturday afternoon. The national championship is later this month in Detroit, Michigan. April 04, 2019 Gov.
