It was a thrilling moment for the Minister and her team yesterday as a long touted dream for her constituency and her ministry saw its beginnings. “A bridge from a dream illustrated years ago in a newspaper advert that had been placed by my predecessor of this constituency, Galmo ‘Gilley’ Williams. The advert envisioned a new school, in a new area, with a new vision to uphold an old ideal; the ideal of more and better education for all. The ideal of keeping hope alive and keeping the dreams of the next generation, always within their reach.”Ground was broken and soil is now turned as a vacant space off Long Bay Hills road is to be transformed, in a phased approach, to eventually become a full secondary school. Eight classrooms, an administrative block, toilet facilities and 150-180 first formers will be first; we spoke to the Director of Education, Edgar Howell. “Well, where we standing, if you look towards the east we will be looking directly at the Administrative Building and then when you go through the entrance, to the classrooms. We’re talking in this initial phase about a facility that will house the first form students only, the intention is for this to develop into a full high school.”The Premier, was also on hand for the ceremony held on the site and said he would like to see the work move at a pace to surpass the current timeline.“When this project was initially conceptualized, we were looking to do it in about three phases, but I am sure with the action of the Government and the Honorable Deputy Premier here, we’re gonna try to do this in two phases… so we hope that by the end of 2016 this project will be completed.”Also turning soil, was shadow cabinet minister for Education and Deputy House Speaker, the Hon Josephine Connolly and sixth grade students of Enid Capron and Oseta Jolly Primary schools.
Nelson: “We know all of our schools are safe, all the occupants, and all of that. We want to ensure there isn’t any hidden structural damage or anything that might cause a major repair.” The Kenai Peninsula was very fortunate to not have as severe of damage as seen in the Anchorage area, but officials are still working to survey borough buildings to ensure continued safety. According to Nelson they are coordinating the assessment of damage for potential assistance to individual property owners. If you have damage to private property, report it as soon as possible to the Office of Emergency Management at http://www.kpb.us/emergency.

Almost a week later and agencies are still working to assess just how much damage was caused. Dan Nelson, Emergency Manager with the Borough Office of Emergency Management: “The borough is right now doing its recovery process, which mainly includes going back and doing full structural assessments of all of our facilities and schools.” read more

-A group of American lawyers on Monday filed a federal lawsuit in New York against Donald Trump, accusing the US president of violating a constitutional ban on accepting payments from foreign governments.Trump dismissed the suit as “totally without merit.”The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is pursuing Trump over his vast business holdings, from which the billionaire has refused to divest fully, saying that as president he can have no conflict of interest.The decision not to divest has drawn fire from Democratic Party opponents and the government watchdog on ethics.CREW says Trump’s business properties abroad operate based partly on goodwill from foreign governments and regulators, but that under the US Constitution no federal official can receive a gift or “emolument” from a foreign government.“Never before have the people of the United States elected a president with business interests as vast, complicated, and secret as those of Donald J. Trump,” said the 37-page lawsuit.“Now that he has been sworn into office as the 45th president of the United States, those business interests are creating countless conflicts of interest, as well as unprecedented influence by foreign governments,” it added.Trump, the wealthiest man ever to become US president, has handed over the running of Trump Organization, which has a network of hotels, golf clubs and luxury residences across 20 countries, to his two adult sons.“Without merit. Totally without merit,” the Republican president responded in answer to a question after signing executive orders in the Oval Office.CREW cited payments from guests at Trump Organization hotels and golf courses and property leases by foreign governments as examples of “cash and favors.”Trump’s lawyer Sheri Dillon said January 11 that Trump would donate all proceeds from any foreign officials to his hotels to the US Treasury, and that he “should not be expected to destroy the company he built.”The lawsuit, which a CREW spokesman said was filed Monday, is not seeking damages other than attorneys costs.“We were forced to take legal action,” CREW executive director Noah Bookbinder said in a statement. “It was our hope that President Trump would take the necessary steps to avoid violating the Constitution before he took office.”But John Coffee, professor at New York’s Columbia Law School and director of its Center on Corporate Governance, questioned its validity without direct or serious injury.“I am not saying they are making a political gesture, but others may make that inference,” he told AFP.Morgan, Lewis and Bockius, the law firm for which Dillon works, told AFP it did not comment on its clients nor the work it does for them. read more
Harris County Flood Control DistrictThis photo shows one of the community engagement meetings the Harris County Flood Control District hosted in the summer of 2018 to provide information on the flood control bond that was voted on August 25, 2018. People who attended the meetings also had the opportunity to provide comments to county officials. Share 00:00 /00:52 Listen X When voters look at the ballot for the Harris County Flood Control District bond election, they see 318 words explaining what the $2.5 billion would be used for.In short, it’s for flood control projects, including purchasing land, construction of detention basins and any needed improvements.But it’s the terms of the bond issue that Jim Blackburn, co-director of the Severe Storm Center at Rice University, calls historic.“In the bond issue, we did get geographic equity worked into the language that the commissioners passed, and that’s really important,” he said. “That and transparency, public participation, are both written in.”Federal funds are driven by benefit-cost ratio, Blackburn said.That means oftentimes those funds will benefit wealthy areas over low-income ones. And that’s one thing the county’s flood bond seeks to avoid.Election Day for the measure is this Saturday, August 25.The ballot reads as follows:“Shall the commissioners court of Harris County, Texas, acting in its capacity as the governing body of the Harris County Flood Control District, be authorized to issue, in one or more series, bonds of such district in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $2,500,000,000.00 bearing interest at a rate or rates not exceeding the maximum interest rate now or hereafter authorized by law, as shall be determined within discretion of such commissioners court at the time of issuance, and maturing serially or otherwise at such times as may be fixed by such commissioners court not to exceed 30 years from their date or dates, for the purposes of financing flood control projects for the district, including purchasing lands, easements, rights-of-way and structures, and for the acquisition and construction of improvements, including detention basins, channel modifications and other works suitable for use in connection with flood damage reduction, of and on behalf of the Harris County Flood Control District, including but not limited to all costs associated with improvements to hold or convey storm water, including wetlands mitigation, and all additions to such systems and all works, improvements, facilities, interests in property, and contract rights necessary or convenient or in the aid thereof, for such district or in cooperation or by contract with the United States of America or any agency thereof, the state of Texas or any agency thereof, the city of Houston, any other municipality or political subdivision within Harris County, or any county adjacent to Harris County or any municipality or political subdivision within such a county, and annually to levy, to the full extent authorized by the constitution and the laws of the state of Texas, an ad valorem tax of the district upon all taxable property within such district sufficient to pay the interest on such bonds and to create and provide a sinking fund for the redemption of said bonds at maturity?” To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: read more

(Phys.org) —Mercedes-Benz is to show off its electric car at the New York International Auto Show, open to the public from March 29 to April 7 at the Jacob Javits Center. Mercedes-Benz calls its vehicle the B-Class Electric Drive. This is an all-electric five-seater to be available for sale in the U.S. next year. What was MB thinking in coming up with such an unfortunate title for such a good-looking vehicle? Naming it B-Class Electric Drive, while indicating it is one of MB’s smaller designs, in a larger context may be confused with a general perception of the letter B as signifying mediocrity, which is not the case with this vehicle. The car maker is positioning it as “the first luxury battery electric car from Mercedes-Benz in the market,” one that will give its drivers “electric driving at the premium level.” The B-Class Electric Drive is actually based on the B-Class car introduced in 2011, but this time around with special features, from instrumentation to total design. The power display is of note; when power is being consumed, a pointer rises in a clockwise direction from a green to red area, and drops back below the zero line when the vehicle is feeding recuperative energy back into the battery.

Geely McCar: Electric vehicle and scooter in one Three large, round air vents are “sporty” features, according to the company, and above those vents is a display screen. The car’s connectivity features include an embedded data connection that allows owners to check battery and charge status via their computer or smartphone.According to the publicity release, the maximum speed is electronically limited to 100 mph (160 km/h) in the interests of operating range. Depending on the driving cycle, the range is around 115 miles (200 km). For a sprint from 0 to 60 mph, the electric car requires less than ten seconds. A lithium ion battery is placed in the vehicle’s underfloor, for crash protection. The B-Class Electric Drive can be recharged via standard household power sockets. The charging time for a range of about 60 miles (100 km) is less than two hours at 240 V/40 A.Wired estimated the B-Class will cost in the mid-$30,000 range, but the actual selling price is not yet known. The new B-Class Electric Drive will be available initially in the US from early 2014, and will be launched in European markets after that.
