Using Forbes ' Brett Knight data compiled for his NBA list of the most overpaid and underpaid players, I wanted to take a look at Thunder's current roster and their value based on last season's production. Knight has adapted a methodology developed by the Southern Utah University economist David Berri, estimating the value of a win and multiplying that figure by estimating how many regular-season wins a player made to determine what the player's salary should be. To determine the number of wins produced by the game, Knight summed the numbers of each team for Wins Produced, Win Shares and an estimation based on Value Over Replacement Player. Of the 16 players currently under contract in Oklahoma City, just 10 were included in the report last season. Players who have not worked under a full-time NBA deal for the last season have not been evaluated. As a consequence, Andre Roberson, Deonte Burton, Devon Hall, Darius Bazley, Justin Patton, and Luguentz Dort were not included due to insufficient data available.
Holberton School, the coding school that bills itself as an alternative to college for budding software engineers from all of life, keeps growing. After recently opening new schools in Colombia and Tunisia, the organization today announced that it will open a new School campus in Tulsa, Okla. on January 2020. With this, Holberton will soon operate 3 schools in the U.S. (San Francisco, New Haven, and Tulsa), three in Colombia (Bogota, Cali, and Medellin) and one in Tunis, Tunisia.
For the Tulsa campus, Holberton is partnering with the George Kaiser Family Foundation and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation to offer students need-based living assistance of $1,500 per month to help cover expenses. Once students pass the blind entrance exam and gain admission to its 2-year program, classes at Holberton are free until students get a good job that pays more than $40,000. At this point, they pay Holberton a share of their income for the next forty-two months, capped at $85,000.
"Holberton education will bring Silicon Valley expertise to the heart of America," said Pauline Cohen Forms, Holberton’s director of business development and partnerships. “By training the students in the Tulsa area in high paying, in demanding jobs, we can contribute to both the workforce development and economic growth in Tulsa.”
The school argues that its admissions process has allowed it to recruit one of the most diverse classes in the technology industry and that it has put students in companies such as Apple, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Tesla. Like with some of its other campuses Tulsa brings Holberton's program to communities that are not typically viewed like rivals to Silicon Valley but that definitely have a large pool of engineering talent.

OKLAHOMA COUNTY — Health officials have confirmed that they are investigating active tuberculosis cases in Oklahoma County.
Oklahoma City-County Health Department officials say that they are investigating an active case of tuberculosis in a student in the Western Heights Public School District. They said the student is not in the main student body of the school but attends a small program in the district.
"The administration and staff of the Western Heights School District have taken all necessary precautions to protect their students and staff," said Dr. Dale Claflin, TB Medical Director of OCCHD in the news release. "As the student is not in the main student body of the school, we are confident that only a few students will be affected. OCCHD will continue to update the district as our investigation continues."
According to the news release, the student program is separated from the rest of the Western Heights population. A small number of students and staff members have been informed that they will need to be examined.
"OCCHD officials have initiated an investigation, including the provision of TB testing of household contacts and other close contacts to the student," the news release states.
Some of the things that Steve Buck said recently about his agency's budget request for next year should be noted by the lawmakers as they consider their appropriations to the Juvenile Affairs Office.
Buck, the Executive Director of OJA, is seeking a 7.6 percent increase in state funding or an additional $7.35 million. Of this total, $1.6 million would go to prison providers, and $359,000 would be used to rebuild a research and data analytics unit that was eliminated several years ago.
The former is needed, Buck said, because providers are "struggling to serve young people who are experiencing very acute mental illness and very high levels of developmental disability."
This isn't supposed to arrive as a shock. High levels of mental illness in Oklahoma have been a long-standing problem. In a recent study, the Oklahoma Policy Institute observed that, according to national research, 92.5 percent of juveniles arrested experienced trauma, and two out of three recorded diagnosable mental health circumstances. Oklahoma has the largest frequency of kids with at least one adverse childhood experience, according to OK Policy.
Buck also said that having solid data is a must for OJA to ' identify hot spots for a specific investment, but then also develop strategies for those hot spots on how we can do things differently. It's a way to help us make use of our time, effort, and energy.

A protest of employees, including Gadani's shop-breaking workers, here Friday demanded that the government implement national ship-breaking policies and remove heavy taxes from this critical economic sector.
As per the details, on the occasion of the third anniversary of the martyrdom of 29 workers in Gadani ship-breaking fire mishap, a Gadani rally was held by the National The Union of Trade Unions and the Union of Gadani Ship-breaking Workers.
Trying to address the protest, the speakers said that three years have passed on to this tragedy, but the Balochistan government has so far failed to provide ship-breaking workers with legal protection.
As a consequence of ship-breaking jobs, in the worst conditions today they are forced to work. It is a distant dream for the implementation of labor laws and health and safety.
Despite the passage of three years to no proper law-making for shipbreaking workers, this could lead to a major disaster.
It is important to bring proper lawmaking to the ship breaking in the industrial sector. A draft law made with broad labor consultation should be tabled as soon as possible in assembly. Health and safety laws should be applied in this sector and the process of contract labor should be terminated.
