Globe gains momentum on data and video experience improvements, well-ahead of aggressive builds

Globe has been consistently upgrading its network and accelerating infra builds as part of its efforts to provide better data experience and connectivity to its subscribers.

Lowe’s Builds New Image At Fashion Week

There’s a lot that’s new and digital about New York Fashion Week. In fact everything is new from the virtual runways to the individual shows getting precedence over the more general events. Even the sponsorships are new, including home improvement retailer Lowe’s.

It might seem to be an unnatural pairing. But Lowe’s is trying to upgrade its image as a home décor brand, and it is using this year’s event to tie in with top tier designers. NYFW kicked off Friday, Sept. 11.

It will participate visually as a backdrop. As designers put their virtual shows together, they will pick shoppable goods from Lowe’s as “edits” within the virtual screen. The first group of designers will be Jason Wu, Rebecca Minkoff and Christian Siriano.

The Collier County School District is looking to the future for eCollier Academy only months after launching the virtual learning model during the coronavirus pandemic.

At a school board meeting Tuesday, board members voted unanimously to approve a remodeling project contract for one of Calusa Park Elementary’s buildings to service eCollier Academy staff, students and parents. 

The construction project was already underway prior to board approval because it was “time sensitive,” according to board documents.

The district provided students four school options for this year: on-campus, Classroom Connect, eCollier Academy and home education.

The eCollier Academy allows students to learn with flexibility so school work can start late or early in a day depending on a family’s home situation.

The remodeling of one of Calusa Park’s buildings, which has about five classrooms, and nearby area is costing the district about $830,000.
