Dallas, United States - May 23, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Asher College of Dallas is announcing they will provide financial support to students to help cover additional student expenses during the Coronavirus pandemic. The funds are allocated through grants provided by the new Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law on March 27, 2020. The bi-partisan legislation was necessitated by the pandemic that has halted the global economy, forced millions out of work, and compelled students to conduct their studies through distance learning. The CARES act enables the U.S. Department of Education to direct funding to eligible organizations like Asher College, which can then provide students direct financial assistance through emergency financial grants.

“COVID-19 has caused a global health and economic crisis. During this time of uncertainty and instability, Asher College wants to support our students in every way possible.” Asher President & CEO David Vice said. “Thanks to the CARES Act and the U.S. Department of Education, we will be able to distribute much needed financial assistance directly to our students.”

Current Asher students were notified about the availability of CARES Act funds the week of May 13th. Distribution is expected to begin when funds are received from the Department of Education and Asher verifies the student’s eligibility. President and CEO David Vice said, “Asher College is pleased to have been able to secure this for our students and happy to assist in facilitating the allocation of these funds on their behalf.”

Asher College is proud to provide career training for in-demand, even essential careers, including administrative healthcare workers, pharmacy technicians, as well as information technology and business careers. During this unprecedented time, Asher’s top priority is the health and safety of our students and community; all current Asher students are receiving classroom instruction through distance learning, so they can continue their programs of study even through this global pandemic. Asher College is currently enrolling for all programs.

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

May 25, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Stocks rise on Wall Street as rally stretches to fourth day

May 25, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rallied Monday, rising with European and several Asian markets following surprisingly strong reports on China's economy. Growth in factory activity and retail sales in the world's second-largest economy both beat analysts’ expectations for last month. That layered on top of optimism from last week’s long-awaited “Phase 1” trade deal between China and the United States, which removed some of the uncertainty that’s hung over businesses and investors. The interim trade deal is one of a “trifecta of positive catalysts” that swept through the market last week and could help support it through the end of...

Kentucky gov's race stirs clash over casino suicide claims

May 25, 2020

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Entering the final days of Kentucky's bitter race for governor, Republican incumbent Matt Bevin exposed himself to a new attack by flatly denying his recorded claim that suicides happen nightly in casinos. Telling a debate audience Saturday night that the truth matters, Bevin challenged his opponent to produce a tape proving his denial wrong. Democrat Andy Beshear offered up the audiotape Sunday. The televised exchange turned Bevin's summer radio interview on WKDZ into a talking point for Democrats heading into the last full week of campaigning in the close gubernatorial contest. In the interview, Bevin claimed, without...

May 25, 2020

NEW YORK — The Senate's top Democrat is calling on the Food and Drug Administration to examine a report that found dozens of baby food products contaminated with lead and other metals. Sen. Chuck Schumer says Sunday the FDA must take more action to regulate the baby food industry.
