Local School District FFA News -- February 19, 2019

Apple: Before we get to that FFA tweet, an Apple note. You can read this article any number of ways, I'm sure, but after their disappointing results in the most recent quarter, I think "it" finally got Tim Cook's attention. Forays into autonomous driving were ludicrous from the very beginning (more on that later, perhaps), and re-design of the stores may not have worked out as well as hoped. It's rare for an Apple executive to leave after only five years. From The WSJ: Apple's executive shake-up readies the company for life after iPhone. And apparently that life does not include cars. One person that commented that putting Deirdre O'Brien in charge of overseeing the entire retail division does NOT bode well. She is currently an HR executive. (I won't say it, but most of us know why companies staff HR the way they do. We saw it on "The Big Bang Theory", too.)
Leadership moves of the past few months include promoting artificial intelligence chief John Giannandrea to the executive team; replacing departing retail chief Angela Ahrendts with head of human resources Deirdre O’Brien; and pushing out top Siri voice-assistant executive Bill Stasior.
Apple has also trimmed 200 staffers from its autonomous-vehicle project, and is redirecting much of the engineering resources in its services business, led by Eddy Cue, into efforts around Hollywood programming.
Local School District And The FFA

From twitter this morning, our local school district. Our oldest granddaughter is not a member of FFA but a lot of her friends are and she has great stories about these friends raising their livestock. As for Sophia and me, we put out bread and bird seed every morning. Our adult daughter says that if a rabbit shows up six times to eat what we throw out, we "own" the rabbit. But I digress. Here's the screenshot:
