03/11/10 GHS Commencement Speaker Announced

The students of the Class of 2010 have selected their Commencement Speaker

2009 NATIONAL TEACHER OF THE YEAR SELECTED AS
GREENWICH HIGH SCHOOL COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER

(For immediate release: Greenwich, CT – Thursday, March 11, 2010) Mr. Anthony Mullen – 2009 National Teacher of the Year, 2009 Connecticut State Teacher of the Year, and Greenwich’s own 2008 Distinguished Teacher – will be the Commencement Speaker for the Greenwich High School graduating Class of 2010. The ceremony will be held in June 2010, the specific date will be announced in April 2010.

Greenwich High School student and President of the Class of 2010 commented on selecting Mr. Mullen as the Commencement Speaker, “From the start, Mr. Mullen was a logical pick. Not many schools can say that they had the national teacher of the year speak at their graduation. He has a strong connection to Greenwich High School and the Greenwich community and all involved felt he would give a relevant and inspiring address. We are extremely glad that Mr. Mullen is able to speak at the graduation ceremony and look forward to hearing the wonderful address we are sure he will give.”

Mr. Mullen is a teacher at the Arch School, an alternative education program for Greenwich High School students. Throughout the 2009-10 school year, Mr. Mullen has represented the Nation, the State of Connecticut and Greenwich as a full time international spokesman and, in his words, has “been given an amazing opportunity to promote the teaching profession and to speak on behalf of children who are too often marginalized because of emotional or learning disabilities.”


He speaks at public schools, universities, and State, National and International education conferences on what he describes as his three pillars of success as a teacher – “passion, professionalism and perseverance.” He has spoken before the President of the United States, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and in January 2010, to over 1000 education ministers representing more than 80% of the world’s population at the Learning and Technology World Forum in London, England. He wrote the forward to and helped to coordinate the entries for the recently published book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teacher Tales. He is working on two more books, one on his journey as a Teacher of the Year and another for parents on navigating the education system.

Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Sidney A. Freund said, “Tony has been an inspiration to educators and students around the world. He returns to Greenwich next year with a wealth of experience and best practices gathered from all parts of the globe. We could not be more proud and could not think of a more fitting commencement speaker for the graduating Class of 2010.”

03/11/10 The new cell-phone bill

Here is the Greenwich Delegation cell phone bill:

http://www.cga.ct.gov/2010/TOB/H/2010HB-05504-R00-HB.htm
with a 750 ft school setback, binding the on the Siting Council:

Cell-phones operate as two-way communicators. When the tower distance increases, the user's hand-set steps up its radiated power from 0.6 watts to as much as three watts.


Therefore, if there are health concerns (and this would be illegal for the siting council to consider under the 1996 federal law), they would be best addressed by keeping student phones at minimum power. In terms of signal strength bars on your cell phone, this would mean something in the low-to-middle range.


Extending the tower distance simply has the effect of powering up every student's personal cell phone to maximum radiated power. There are over 3 billion cell phones in use. The majority of local students carry and use them throughout the day.


Here's what it looks like in the student's head with a cell phone applied to the ear:

The Town of Greenwich, the School Board and the private schools all have FCC broadcast licences for the UHF band. A local spectrum test was performed last week. Here's what the local licencees produce for radio waves:
