Why 'Knowledge-Rich' Kids Get 'Richer' and How Yours Can, Too

February 27, 2019 - 9:00am

A few years ago someone explained “The Matthew Effect” to me. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a principle drawn from Matthew 13:12 (and Matt 25:29) in the Bible, which basically says the person who “has” will be given more, and the person who “doesn’t have,” from him “shall be taken away even that he has.”

In other words, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

Putnam says the bill, the Healthy Schools for Healthy Lives Act, will allow Florida to take advantage of opportunities to leverage the state's year-round growing season, and create dual benefits of promoting home-grown Florida products, and getting more fresh fruits and vegetables on school lunch trays.

Scott's 'Efficiency Measures' Fund Miami Dredging Project

March 10, 2011 - 6:00pm

Expected approval of the Port of Miami dredging project is being hailed as a win for the state of Florida, particularly the areas in and around Miami.

It will allow the Army Corps of Engineers to dredge the port to a depth of 50 feet, making it a viable option to handle the new Post-Panamax ships that will come through the Panama Canal when the expansion project is completed in 2014.

But one month ago, nobody could say where the additional $77 million to make it happen would come from.
