Australia's Mining Boom Forecast to Peak in 2 Years - Money Matters
Business Review Australia - over 4 years
A report released by budget forecaster Deloitte Access Economics sent a chilling warning to Australia’s heads of finance: the mining boom, responsible for propelling the nation through the GFC and beyond, will come to an end within the next two years. Though the prediction does not pose an immediate threat to Australia’s economy, The Australian noted that Treasurer Wayne Swan will have quite a lot of decisions to make before providing a budget update in November. ''If it shows this year's forecast $1.5 billion budget surplus is no longer there, he will have to decide whether to cut again in order to continue to forecast a surplus,” said Access director Chris Richardson to The Australian. “The risk is the cuts will hurt. The window dressing in the May budget was designed not to hurt.” SEE RELATED STORIES FROM THE WDM CONTENT NETWORK: Australia Poised to Become #1 Global Supplier of LNG Subsea Mining Banned in NT Until 2015 Australia's Mining Quee ...

Northfield Schools Want a Tablet in Each Student's Hands
Northfield Patch - almost 5 years
Let’s get digital. Or so say administrators at Northfield Public Schools. Superintendent Chris Richardson and Matt Hillmann, district director of human resources and technology, have been making the rounds to different community organizations in recent weeks pitching the idea of transforming Northfield’s educational system. In short, the district wants to put a tablet—a cross between a smartphone and a laptop—in the hands of each of Northfield’s 3,900 students and most of its staff. The tablet would replace most items in a traditional classroom—textbooks, notebooks, quizzes, DVDs, handouts and just about anything else paper-based. Extreme? It’s already happening elsewhere. Recently, the school board for Lakeville Public Schools approved the district to purchase 1,900 iPad 2s as part of its technology initiative. “This is just the next step in what I think is the natural evolution in the way we provide content to students." A 2011 Piper Jaffray Tablets in t ...

During American Idol, Chris received many comparisons to Justin Timberlake, including from judge Randy Jackson.

"To be even mentioned in the same sentence as someone so successful, it's great," Richardson told the Associated Press on Thursday the day after his elimination in a phone interview. "They might be surprised whenever I come out with my album, that it's completely different than his. So that's when other people might one day be, like 'Hey, you sort of sound like Chris Richardson.'"
