Jerrie Williams is a blogger on the Beauregard Daily News website. The name of her blog is C.O.P.E. Community Organized Parents in Education. This blog is syndicated statewide to all GateHouse websites. She will not only be blogging about local education concerns, but information about resources for parental research on different subjects concerning children and their well being. Jerrie Williams is the mother of three autistic children. Her journey began in 1999, when she discovered that her children were not developing according to the national mind stone charts. This was after they had received immunizations and developed reactions to them. She later learned the immunizations contained an agent that her children were allergic to, which led to their developmental delays. She moved her children to Georgia to be treated by a specialist in autism and brain injury in 2000. Since then she has been searching and discovering several research-based interventions and resources to educate, support and assist in the recovery of autism. She moved to Louisiana in August, 2011, and has been involved in educating the community about autism and the resources available to parents of autistic children as well as adults with autism. She has been instrumental in helping the Beauregard Parish school system to design an individualized curriculum that was suited for the educational needs of her children as well as other special needs children. Her children have since blossomed with this curriculum and continue to thrive. She will continue in her journey as a mother and an advocate for others.
Comcast's recently unveiled logo might be new, but it's very familiar. The cable giant has incorporated the NBC peacock into the new design, The Wall Street Journal reports.The iconic peacock, which first debuted at NBC in 1956, has replaced the red crescent that used to accompany the Comcast name.Has your favorite show been canceled?"The peacock is one of the most recognizable brands in America, and if you look at the iconic peacock with the modern new font for Comcast, it brings together the whole concept of media and technology," a spokeswoman for Comcast said.The change comes about after Comcast acquired NBC Universal last year, making the network one of its highest-profile businesses, though it only accounts for 2 percent of Comcast's operating profit and 13 percent of its revenue.Eventually, the new logo will be emblazoned on all Comcast service trucks, print and TV advertisements, and customers' cable bills, but until then, you can check out the new design on its website.
