|Description||The SRTF announced the approval of a new project to improve food security in the northern Aleppo countryside today. The “Complementary project for Enhancing Food Security in the North of Aleppo Governorate” project will support the Implementing Entity (IE) address the current food insecurity crisis in the northern Aleppo countryside. At a total cost of EUR 6.2 million, the project will ensure procurement and import of 15,000 tons of soft wheat to supplement local hard wheat for bread production. The project will also provide Hessian and Polypropylene sacks to pack, store and transport grains and flour, as well as Polyethylene Sheets, which will be used to protect harvested piles of wheat grains. Moreover, the project will provide phostoxin and rodenticide to protect wheat crops against insect-fumigation. Other components of the project will include delivering a variety of fixed goods including motorcycles, portable belt conveyor, IT and communication equipment, as well as other office equipment. The project will be implemented by a leading parastatal organization responsible with safeguarding food security in opposition-controlled areas of Syria. The IE will receive institutional support, ensuring both the technical and administrative staff of the IE develop their capacities to manage and ensure quality support is provided to the Syrian people. The project will improve the living conditions of over 175,000 beneficiaries in the targeted areas by stabilizing bread prices and ensuring the availability of reliable supplies of flour to local bakeries. Over 2000 people will benefit through generated employment opportunities. Over the 18 month implementation period, the project will satisfy food security needs of the local community and will invigorate and restructure the deeply unstable wheat market in Syria.|

|Description||We are now in an era, where technology features largely and as an essential aid to learning, in the academic environment. Devices such as laptops and tablets help students to cultivate needed skills, as well as enable teachers to run a fun and interactive curriculum and classroom atmosphere. The world’s No. 1 PC maker, Lenovo, is committed to making the process of education more enriching and more empowering with devices that are designed to enhance student engagement and that put the connected universe of knowledge at students’ fingertips. The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e is the ideal notebook to do just these things, immersing students in education through experience.
“The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e is a multi-function, adaptable and durable laptop that can empower students across all subjects and in a diversity of learning environments. It is designed, as all Lenovo devices are, to explore new reaches of potential, including learning potential,” said Lenovo Philippines’ Country General Manager, Michael Ngan.
“Our youth are digital natives who learn in ways that have developed around the technologies that they are growing up with. To ensure that they grow up with a full set of experiences, we develop devices that make their ability to tap into resources and to make connections, a natural part of life. The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e is also designed to make it easier for teachers to show all sides of their subject matter, and to bring the world inside the classroom,” Ngan added.
Superior Build Quality
Durability is one of the major concerns when deploying computers and laptops in schools. The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e, even with slender dimensions, is built to withstand rough handling. This device is protected by a rubber bumper with strengthened brackets to absorb shock in case the device is dropped. To ensure its build quality, the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e has undergone military-specification testing including exposure to extreme conditions such as temperature shocks, low and high pressure areas, high humidity, hard vibration and also to dust.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e sports an 11.6-inch Dragontail Glass Multi-touch display that is six times stronger than conventional glass but remains sensitive enough to detect touch commands. The scratch- and crack-proof glass perfectly complements the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e’s rugged design, making it a smart choice for students.
The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e may be used in four different modes: laptop, tablet, tent or stand. When switching to different modes, the unique and flexible design of this device allows the screen to flip 360 degrees depending on the selected mode. Even school or university management and administrative staff will find a mode that is the most convenient and ergonomic for their day-to-day running of the campus.
The laptop mode lets students or teachers make full use of the physical keyboard and works best for typing papers and reports. Students can easily switch to tablet mode and utilize the 10-point multi-touch screen for easier and faster navigation through the web. In ‘tent’ or ‘stand’ mode, this convertible gizmo makes delivering presentations or converging for small group discussions a breeze.
For users who still intuitively reach for a pen, the Yoga 11e’s Active Pen offers pin-point recognition for utmost accuracy, so that students and teachers can easily translate bright ideas into notes, scribbles, and drawings and ultimately into productive outcomes.
Great minds are fueled further when provided with the best tools. The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e houses an Intel Broadwell Core M-5Y10c Processor with the latest Windows 8.1 operating system to allow students to run multiple applications smoothly.

|Description||The construction phase for the new La Crosse County Library in Holmen is anticipated to begin this month. Acting on the recommendation from the village’s Parks, Recreation and Library Committee, the Holmen Village Board voted at its Aug. 11 meeting to award the construction project to Olympic Builders General Contractors, Inc.
The Holmen company submitted the low bid of $3,990,413 for the project. The construction firm was also the contractor for the new Holmen Law Enforcement Center completed last year.
The proposed 18,000-square-foot building is to be located on a cul-de-sac at the west end of West Legion Street, across from the law enforcement center. Plans for the new library include separate sections for youth, teen and adult materials, as well as a large gathering space for programming that can be divided into two meeting rooms. The meeting spaces would be available to the community for gatherings.
The new library would replace the current 6,000-square-foot building located on State Street. Along with the housing materials available to area library patrons, the Holmen library also provides office space for county administrative staff. The county library staff administers Holmen and the four other county public libraries.
When the village board approved the new library project last fall, members voted to have $1 million of the construction costs come from private donations. So, as the building phase gets underway, the village is also gearing up for the fundraising campaign.
To create a structure for the campaign, the village board approved a resolution outlining the donation and recognition policy.
“This is how we would want to recognize people who contribute,” said Holmen Village Administrator Scott Heinig at the Holmen PR&L Aug. 3 meeting.
Donation levels range from $500 to $50,000 or more with naming rights for the library building set at a minimum of $500,000. Those donating $500 or more will be recognized on a donor recognition wall. Naming rights for the adult and children collection areas have been set at a minimum of $100,000 each, with the program and study room areas set at a $25,000 minimum for each space.
The fireplace room, at a donation level of $10,000 minimum, has been pledged. Village trustee Chuck Olson and his wife, Ardene, have pledged to fund the room with two donations of $5,000 paid over two years. Olson stated he hoped the donation would spark others to contribute to the fundraising effort.
Private donations for the library project can be dropped off at the village hall during business hours.
Construction can get underway following a planning meeting, with the goal of having the new library completed in the fall of 2017.
The new library construction is part of a $9,215,000 bond the village board approved at the meeting. Other projects to be funded by the bond include the Holmen Drive improvement project and improvements to be made in the tax increment district No. 3.
In advising the village board about the bond issue, Sean Lentz of Ehlers and Associates told the trustees the village’s AA- rating was instrumental in receiving an interest rate for the bond of 2.6183 percent. The interest rate would be locked in for the length of the bond.
“For a village the size of Holmen, it’s a very good rating,” Lentz said. “Interest rates have been outrageously low. You would be hard-pressed to find lower rates.”
Owners of property valued at $200,000 could see an additional $104 on their tax bill, starting in 2017, to meet the obligations of the bonding.
