Arnold: Mend fences, build bridges

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week He did not issue the apology that some of his opponents have demanded, but said he takes “full responsibility” for the results of the special election and now realizes the public didn’t want it. Schwarzenegger said he also should have listened to his wife, Maria Shriver, who advised against the special election. “The bottom line is, we did it. And the bottom line is, we didn’t win.” The comments came after a 40-minute meeting between Schwarzenegger and the “Big Five” legislative leaders, who expressed a desire to work together. As a symbol of his desire to cooperate, Schwarzenegger said he would seek input from Democratic legislators in crafting his next State of the State address, to be delivered in January, when he will spell out his vision for the final year of his first term. A newly contrite Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Thursday that he realizes he never should have called the special election, but he vowed to work with Democrats to push forward with reform despite his sweeping failure at the ballot box. Schwarzenegger met with legislative leaders of both parties in a move toward reconciliation and struck a tone of humility, reflection and optimism in his first public comments since voters Tuesday soundly rejected all four of the measures on his reform agenda. “It’s always easy to look back,” Schwarzenegger said when asked whether he should have done anything differently. “As a matter of fact, if I were to do another `Terminator’ movie, I would have Terminator travel back in time to tell Arnold not to have a special election.” During this year’s State of the State address, Democratic leaders were unhappily caught by surprise when Schwarzenegger announced the reform agenda that ultimately resulted in the special election. In the months after that speech, the governor’s tone was seen as increasingly aggressive and partisan, even as resistance and attacks from the state’s public-employee unions increased. It came in stark contrast to his first year in office, when Schwarzenegger cultivated an image as a centrist who was able to work well with Democrats to craft compromises on issues such as budget reform and a workers’ compensation overhaul. Assembly Speaker Fabian Nu ez, D-Los Angeles – who had been increasingly critical of the governor’s tone in the final weeks before the special election and on the day after it – said he was impressed by Schwarzenegger’s attitude Thursday. “During the campaign, particularly in the last couple weeks, I was saying this is not the governor he promised to be,” Nu ez said. “Today, in my conversation with him, both privately and in the `Big Five,’ he really was sounding like the governor we elected. So that’s a very positive sign.” [email protected] (916) 446-6723160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Ohio Corn, Soybean and Wheat Farmers Applaud Senate Passage of Lake Erie Plan

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Soybean Association (OSA) and Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association (OCWGA) applaud Wednesday’s passage by the Ohio Senate of Senate Bill 299, bipartisan legislation that would invest $20 million in farm equipment and other initiatives to help farmers reduce phosphorus runoff in the Western Lake Erie Basin.The legislation, known as Clean Lake 2020, would also invest significant resources in dredging prevention, research and monitoring, and conservation programs. OSA and OCWGA both testified in support of SB 299 last week.“The health of Lake Erie has been a priority for Ohio grain farmers for many years, and they have invested their own dollars in research and education programs in an effort to be part of the solution,” said Allen Armstrong, OSA president. “Clean Lake 2020 will help farmers implement even more best management practices and achieve our goals faster.”The Ohio House is expected to consider and vote on its version of Clean Lake 2020, House Bill 634, in the coming weeks.“This is an example of good, bipartisan work done on behalf of Lake Erie that promotes healthy soils and clean water,” said Jed Bower, OCWGA president. “Working collaboratively with all stakeholders and making science-based policy is essential to making real progress.”last_img read more

Are Entrepreneurs Born or Made?

first_imgIt’s a longstanding debate: are entrepreneurs made or born? In other words, are certain people just naturally inclined to become entrepreneurs? Or are there particular skills and training afforded by (business) schools that can make you (to misquote Daft Punk) smarter, better, faster, stronger?“Born or made” – that was the subject of a talk given by Jose Ferreira, founder and CEO of adaptive learning, test-prep company Knewton at the recent “Silicon Valley Comes to Cambridge” event. Ferreira argues that it’s more complicated that simply one or the other. What drives some of us to become entrepreneurs is really a “cocktail of traits” – a blend of upbringing, culture, friends, as well as experience and education. He jokes that while “you can teach some ancillary skills,” in the end “entrepreneurship is a really a personality disorder more than anything else.”Ferreira looks at some of the differences in personality (disordered or otherwise) between those individuals drawn to careers in banking and finance and those who are drawn to startups and entrepreneurship. According to Ferreira, the latter looks at the world and says, “This is crap and I can do better.” The former thinks “I’m going to take advantage of this.”Ferreira’s talk addresses a number of other topics about entrepreneurship and education and about why you should (or shouldn’t) be an entrepreneur. And sure, while it doesn’t settle the question once and for all of whether or not entrepreneurs are born or made, it’s worth watching, particularly given Ferreira’s background (an MBA from Harvard, work at Goldman Sachs, and now the CEO of Knewton).Keynote 3 – Jose Ferreira A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#start#tips center_img audrey watters Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts last_img read more
