Tech Bytes- Tid Bits in Tech News: Jack Valenti's Growth Engine

In Senate testimony last week, Jack Valenti, chief executive for the Motion Picture Association of America, described the entertainment industry as an "economic growth engine" that is "the envy of the known world." Threats to copyright should be rejected by the Senate, argues Valenti, because they would endanger the "economic and creative prize" that is the entertainment industry. Valenti argues that without copyright, America will "squander our creative future" as private risk capital for international ventures evaporates.

Mentoring program one solution to cutting teacher shortage

Liz DeLoach kept Lily Dungan from quitting her job. Dungan, a first-year teacher at Waco's Doris Miller Elementary School, wept just days into the start of school last August. She believed she could not handle the constant talking and frequent skirmishes among her fourth-grade students. But DeLoach, who has taught 11 years, assured her a little classroom chatter was not the end of the world. She reminded Dungan that teachers themselves are hardly silent during school faculty meetings.

Panel's tax plan trims fat

BY Wade Rawlins

A commission appointed by Gov. Mike Easley to study tax loopholes and government cost-saving measures delivered a list of tax code changes Friday that eventually would produce more than $ 200 million a year in revenue and possibly millions more in savings. The Commission on Efficiency and Loophole Closing also shifted some of the pain of the tax changes away from consumers and back to corporations, rewriting an earlier list of recommendations that would have saddled individuals with more of the new taxes.

Campaign finance inflation

BY Rah Bickley

Raleigh old-timers remember when it cost only $ 5 to file to run for City Council. Actually, relative newcomers probably remember, too, because that is how much it cost until Tuesday. That is when the Raleigh City Council voted to increase the filing fee to $ 100 for candidates for mayor and council. Requiring candidates to spend more than they would for a burger and fries should produce a more thoughtful stable of office-seekers, said Councilman John Odom.

Over 120 NC CSE activists, supporters, and concerned citizens crowded in a meeting room with standing room only at the Velvet Cloak Inn in Raleigh to challenge and plea with three Wake County Commissioners to not raise their taxes unnecessarily.
