Judy Chu (CA-27) released the following statement on the 50th anniversary of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson on April 11, 1965:Under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), every child has the right to an equitable education, regardless of race, zip code, family income, background, or disability. Education is the greatest equalizer, and the ESEA helps accomplish this by helping break down the socio-economic barriers students face. Fifty years since the ESEA was passed, we have seen great progress, but there is still more work to be done to bridge the chasm of inequality. States and local educational agencies must be accountable for the education of all students, and we must ensure that critical funding and resources go to those that need it the most. And, for the almost 5 million English language learners in the U.S., we must make certain that they have the support that they need to succeed. I will continue to fight to ensure that the ESEA is not only reauthorized, but also strengthened to further promote educational excellence for every child.”The Elementary and Secondary Education Act was first passed in 1965, and has been reauthorized seven times since then, most recently in 2002 as No Child Left Behind. The latest version of ESEA expired in 2007, and Congress has been unable to reach a reauthorization agreement since. Currently, there is a proposal in the House to rewrite ESEA, H.R. 5, The Student Success Act, and the Senate version is planned to be introduced next week.

The Daily Gazette Sign up for daily emails to get the latest Harvard news. Participants completed regular assessments of their thinking and memory during the study period. They also provided frequent urine tests to verify cannabis abstinence in those randomized to stop cannabis use, and exposure in the continuing-use group. Members of both groups were paid for study visits, and members of the abstinence group were paid for adhering to cannabis abstinence.Throughout the study period, the levels of the urinary cannabis biomarker steadily decreased among the abstinence group, with almost 89 percent meeting criteria for 30 days of continuous abstinence. In the continuing-use group, biomarker levels remained unchanged. Cognitive testing found memory — specifically the ability to learn and recall new information — improved only among those who stopped using cannabis, and this improvement occurred largely during the first week of abstinence. A month of cannabis abstinence was not associated with improvements in attention, and no aspect of cognitive functioning improved among those who continued cannabis use. A Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) study finds that one month of abstaining from cannabis use results in measurable improvement in memory functions important for learning among regular cannabis users in adolescence and young adulthood.The study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry is one of the first to prospectively track over time changes in cognitive function associated with halting cannabis use.“Our findings provide two pieces of convincing evidence,” said Randi Schuster, director of neuropsychology at the Center for Addiction Medicine in the MGH Department of Psychiatry, lead author of the paper. “The first is that adolescents learn better when they are not using cannabis. The second — which is the good news part of the story — is that at least some of the deficits associated with cannabis use are not permanent and actually improve pretty quickly after cannabis use stops.”Schuster is an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.The authors note that the use of cannabis among adolescents is common, with more than 13 percent of middle and high school students reporting cannabis use in a recent survey and rates of daily use increasing between grades eight and 12. But adolescence is a critical time for brain maturation, specifically for brain regions that are most susceptible to the effects of cannabis. A 2016 study from the same research team found that cannabis users aged 16 and younger had difficulty learning new information, a problem that was not observed in users age 17 and older.The current study is the first one able to determine not only whether cognitive improvement occurs but also when during abstinence this improvement is detectable. The study enrolled 88 participants ages 16 to 25 from the Boston area, all of whom acknowledged using cannabis at least once a week. Investigators compared weekly cognitive performance between a group of young cannabis users who agreed to stop for 30 days and a group that continued to use cannabis. To ensure that the two groups were as comparable as possible, they were randomized in a way that controlled for factors such as pre-existing differences in learning, mood, cognition, and motivation, and the frequency and intensity of cannabis use. The current study is the first one able to determine not only whether cognitive improvement occurs but also when during abstinence this improvement is detectable. “The ability to learn or ‘map down’ new information, which is a critical facet of success in the classroom, improved with sustained nonuse of cannabis.” Schuster said. “Young cannabis users who stop regular — weekly or more — use may be better equipped to learn efficiently and therefore better positioned for academic success. We can confidently say that these findings strongly suggest that abstaining from cannabis helps young people learn, while continuing cannabis use may interfere with the learning process.“There are still a lot of open questions to be studied, including whether attention might improve and memory continues to improve with longer periods of cannabis abstinence,” she added.Those questions and others are being addressed in a larger follow-up trial that includes younger participants — ages 13 to 19 — and a group that never used cannabis to help determine whether the cognitive improvements produced by cannabis abstinence return participants to performance levels similar to those of nonusers. Another trial about to begin will follow young cannabis users who abstain for six months, investigating whether cognition continues to improve beyond 30 days and if those improvements can affect school performance.The study was supported by National Institute on Drug Abuse grants 1K23 DA042946, 1K01 DA034093, 1R01 DA042043-01A1, and K24 DA030443; and the Norman E. Zinberg Fellowship in Addiction Psychiatry and the Livingston Fellowship from Harvard Medical School. Schuster is a recipient of the Louis V. Gerstner III MGH Research Scholar Award.

The Sounders entered the match as odds-on favorites, having bested Supporters’ Shield-winner LAFC in the Western Conference final to get into Sunday’s match. However, the game looked like it was on a platter for TFC for large stretches, especially the first half when the visitors built up a 65 percent possession advantage.Another one for the trophy case. 🏆🏆@SoundersFC are the 2019 #MLSCup Champions! pic.twitter.com/fBwzLGcsDd— Major League Soccer (@MLS) November 10, 2019Toronto was missing the big presence of Altidore up front until his entrance with just over 20 minutes to go, as the Reds couldn’t do much with their overwhelming possession advantage. Seattle, content to rely on a counterattacking strategy, eventually found chances and it was a fortuitous bounce from Leerdam’s 57th-minute shot — originally ruled an own goal — that broke the game open.With the crowd reinvigorated, the Sounders played with their tails up and flipped the pressure on their visitors, eventually finding the winning goal through substitute Rodriguez on a pretty movement to slice open TFC’s defense down the middle of the field. Ruidiaz put the cherry on top after a routine long ball over the top caused havoc between Toronto defender Chris Mavinga and goalkeeper Quentin Westberg to allow one of the easiest goals the Sounders striker will ever score.With the game over, TFC continued pushing and Alejandro Pozuelo found the head of Altidore for a consolation goal in stoppage time.Sporting News tracked all the goals, big plays and highlights.

Interestingly, his contract ends after this season, and if TFC wins today he’ll reportedly see an option year automatically kick in that will pay him $6.5 million in 2020. Needless to say, Bradley will be doubly motivated today.2️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ Michael Bradley makes his 200th appearance for #TFCLive in all competitions today.

The 2016 penalty shootout is just considered a tiebreaker and doesn’t count toward official goal total.First half0′ – Kickoff! Here we go! (3:09 p.m. ET)3′ – First corner of the game goes to Seattle. It’s dealt with rather easily by Toronto.4′ – First shot of the match goes to Toronto. It’s a long-distance effort from Benezet that one-hops into Frei’s awaiting hands.7′ – It appears as though the Sounders are willing to concede possession to TFC and try for counterattacks. It’s a bit unexpected given that Seattle’s the home side, but it plays to their strengths.9′ – Sounders get their first shot after a TFC giveaway deep allows Morris to use his blistering pace to run 80 yards downfield before unleashing an effort from just inside the penalty area. Toronto goalkeeper Westberg has it covered, but that’s the danger of Seattle’s speed.11′ – Now TFC gets a shot off after a nice, incisive movement through the middle of the pitch allows Osorio to turn and fire from the penalty spot. It’s right at Frei, however.18′ – Not much of note going on over the past few minutes, except for a couple of hard fouls from each side that the referee has to keep in check.21 – Another corner for the Sounders. Torres comes close after the ball somehow falls to him near the top of the 18-yard-box. 26′ – Overall play has been wide open; far less cagey than most cup finals in the early stages.32′ – Sounders go with a short corner, and earn another one after the ball kind of bounces around in front. The follow-up is driven away by TFC.33′ – Yet another Seattle corner after the ball is recycled back into the box in the second phase. It leads to another one, then another, then it’s finally gathered by Westberg.35′ – Free kick for TFC from 30 yards out after Pozuelo and Osorio try to out-pirouette each other to the chagrin of the Seattle defense. The set piece is cleared but on the second phase Benezet gets the ball out wide left and hits a low rocket that’s well saved by Frei.Stef’s save keeps it scoreless! 🙌 #SoundersMatchday | #MLSCup pic.twitter.com/iyiEg7XWZK— Seattle Sounders FC (@SoundersFC) November 10, 201939′ – Good interplay by TFC to get into the final third, but there’s a distinct lack of decisiveness and Seattle gets off without much threat.42′ – It’s been an incredibly scrappy few minutes as referee Chapman seems to be letting a lot more go.45′ – Big save Westberg! Sounders counterattack on the right wing and Ruidiaz gets in behind Gonzalez before hitting a low, hard shot that forces a kick save by the Toronto goalkeeper.Seattle’s best chance in an MLS Cup ever. pic.twitter.com/7oiIaPHS5i— Sounder At Heart (@sounderatheart) November 10, 201945’+1 – The whistle blows and it’s scoreless at the half.

(4:12 p.m. ET)50′ – Seattle has started this half sitting very deep, allowing TFC to be on the front foot.52′ – Toronto gets a corner after a Pozuelo free kick is shunted out by the Sounders. It amounts to nothing.54′ – Pozuelo takes on four Seattle defenders and wins. His ball through to Osorio is punted by Kim before the TFC midfielder had a free shot on goal from 10 yards out.57′ – GOAL ⚽️ Against the run of play, Seattle gets the ball out to Leerdam, whose shot deflects off Morrow and into the Toronto goal.

The TFC man knew what he was doing as Lodeiro was off to the races.74′ – Mavinga’s down on the pitch after semingly pulling his hamstring or calf in the middle of a Seattle break. 75′ – The TFC defender is back on the field after briefly leaving to get medical attention. Looked like it was actually his ankle.76′ ⚽️ GOAL – Seattle grabs a two-goal lead after the Sounders pin Toronto in their own half and substitute Rodriguez drills a low effort from outside the box.
