What we’re reading: Trump visits the border

first_imgTwitter ReddIt Facebook Nicole Hawkinshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/nicole-hawkins/ Nicole Hawkins is a journalism and political science double major from Tucson, Arizona. When Nicole’s not reporting, you’ll likely find her talking politics, iced coffee in hand. printWe’re back and we’re reading – everything from “The Washington Post” to the “The New York Times.” We’re trying to help you keep up with the rapid pace of politics and everyday news. Today, we’ve got updates on the president’s visit to the border, charges against a man claiming to be a missing Illinois boy and another request from Prime Minister May for a Brexit delay.Trump heads to the borderPresident Trump will visit an upgraded portion of the border fence today in Calexico, a town with a population of about 40,000 along the California-Mexico border.This will be the third time a federal official has visited the area in a year, according to the Washington Post.Heading to the Southern Border to show a section of the new Wall being built! Leaving now!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 5, 2019The trip comes a day after Trump announced he would not close the U.S.-Mexico border after a week of threatening to do so.Mormon Church will allow children of L.G.B.T. parents to be baptizedThe Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints announced Thursday it would roll back restrictions keeping children of same-sex couples from being baptized and participating in baby-naming ceremonies, according to the New York Times.The announcement was made by church President Dallin H. Oaks ahead of this weekend’s general conference for all church members.The church tweeted that the policy “should increase respect and understanding among all people of goodwill.”FBI charges man who claimed to be missing Illinois boyAn Ohio man who claimed to be a missing boy has been charged with making false statements to a federal agent, according to USA Today.Brian Michael Rini, a 23-year-old ex-convict, told Kentucky police Wednesday he was 14-year-old Timmothy Pitzen, an Illinois boy who went missing in 2011 after his mother committed suicide.DNA tests proved Rini was not the missing boy. He was later arrested and charged. The Aurora Police Department in Illinois will continue to investigate Pitzen’s disappearance.Trump pulls ICE nomineeTrump has pulled his nominee to run Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Ron Vitiello, in order to go in a “tougher direction,” according to CNN.This move comes after the union representing ICE officers opposed Vitiello’s confirmation. This marked the first time in history the National ICE Council officially opposed a presidentially-appointed federal official, according to a letter sent by the union’s president to the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.“We’re going in a little different direction,” Trump told reporters Friday. “Ron’s a good man but we’re going in a tougher direction. We want to go in a tougher direction.”Trump has not yet named other potential nominees to fill the position.May requests another Brexit delayBritish Prime Minister Theresa May wrote to the president of the European Council Friday to ask for a delay in Britain’s departure from the European Union until June 30, according to Al Jazeera. Currently, the UK’s deadline to leave the EU is next Friday, April 12, which was extended from the country’s initial Brexit deadline of March 29. Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, said earlier this week that May will not be granted any short-term extensions unless the UK parliament backs May’s Brexit deal, which it has yet to do.Ethiopian Airlines investigation shows pilots followed proceduresAccording to The New York Times, an investigation into an Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed last month has found the pilots followed Boeing’s procedures for its newest model, the 737 Max.Following the crash that killed all 157 on board, Boeing insisted it provided all necessary information for pilots to follow in an emergency situation. Now, that’s unclear.The investigation found that the pilots shut off the electricity that allowed automated software to push the plane into a nose dive and attempted to pull up, but were ultimately unsuccessful in regaining control. Boeing’s 737 Max remains grounded worldwide. That’s all we have for today. Check back Monday for more.

first_img Community News Got something to say, email Managing Editor André Coleman, at [email protected] Subscribe More Cool Stuff Super Tuesday: Alex Padilla’s Blame GameCA Secretary of State Alex Padilla pointed his finger in the wrong direction when blaming LA County Registrar of Voters Dean Logan for Election Day difficulties.It is Mr. Padilla who serves as the state’s chief election officer, oversees all federal and state elections and maintains the data base of registered voters.Accounts show Mr. Padilla was advised that implementation of the new “Voting Solutions for All People” system (VSAP) would place a daunting learning curve on both staff and voters and would better be crafted as a pilot project.Rather than educate on the known technical complexities, Mr. Padilla’s official website offered Coachella-style distractions urging community groups to “adopt” vote centers to brand them with unique signage and events promoted on social media.This frivolity was followed by “no action” from Mr. Padilla when the state’s supermajority legislature passed “urgency” legislation (SB 207) allowing voters, in lieu of a new affidavit of registration, to change address of residence and party affiliation up to poll closing on election day. Gov. Newsom signed this bill a mere ten days before the first vote centers opened for early voting.Mr. Padilla now castigates LA’s Dean Logan for shortcomings of his own Secretary of State office, punitively demanding all 5.5 million voters in LA county receive vote-by-mail (VBM) ballots.Yet a Los Angeles Times editorial (12/07/18) noted the lack of safeguards against fraudulent VBM ballot harvesting when 5+ million ballots are circulating within a large county, aided by the reluctance of the legislature’s supermajority to correct for potential misuse.Mr. Padilla may unilaterally determine to scrap the VSAP system he actively endorsed, yet I’ve seen no recommendation for making LA County whole in recovering $300 million spent on the system.At this point it is evident Mr. Padilla has run out of good ideas.One small (and smart) improvement may be to over-ride dependence on the well-documented, hugely problematic DMV motor-voter system implemented by Mr. Padilla and used for voter registration and voter roll maintenance. (Who has called for Mr. Padilla’s “head to roll” for that on-going disaster?)With Super Tuesday behind us and the need to support county registrar efforts to improve the VSAP experience, new legislation to augment DMV motor-voter with jury commissioner data at the county level has been introduced by two state senators.The “Voter Roll Accuracy Act” (Senate Bill 994) by CA Senators Bates and Moorlach would increase the accuracy of county voter rolls by requiring county jury commissioners to share relevant changes in a prospective juror’s voter registration data with county election officials.This makes sense if the objective is to create a cleaner/leaner voter data base and a smoother check-in at vote centers on election day.However, it is now probable Mr. Padilla’s own objective is to continue “toying” with California elections – and then blame the line-folks at the county level for failing when doing his bidding.If this becomes the status quo, confidence in the CA voting system will collapse.Mr. Padilla? Your name is on this.Mary Dee Cavanagh-Romney Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Comments from the readersTo the Editor of Pasadena Now:Re: “The Lost Children of Los Angeles County: Foster Care Reform Moves Steadily Through Growing Pains”A vast overhaul to the structure of Los Angeles’ Department of Children and Family Services indeed sounds daunting when working with approximately 4,000 social workers and 30,000 children served in any given month. The push for a trauma-informed, person-centered, and multidisciplinary approach sounds appropriate to serve the population in question but with such a high volume of cases, it seems nearly impossible. It has already been two years since the Continuum of Care Reform Act was implemented and I am skeptical another two years would be enough to fully integrate these new systems. It may be prudent to discuss additional plans to ensure children and families do not fall through the cracks in what is certain to be a lengthy and trying transition process for all.Respectfully,Janette NguyenMaster of Social Work Student faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Community News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS First Heatwave Expected Next Week center_img Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

first_img Pinterest Google+ Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The RNLI has published issued video footage showing the Portrush Lifeboat bringing a stricken trawler into Greencastle, assisted by the Lough Swilly Lifeboat.https://www.rnlivideolibrary.org.uk/getvideo.aspx?vid=wlOTTHeoThe RNLI say the Portrush lifeboat crew was requested by Belfast Coastguard to launch their all-weather lifeboat at 10.37pm last night (Sunday 1 October) and go to the assistance of a 15m fishing vessel which had suffered engine failure approximately 10 miles north of Malin Head.The all-weather lifeboat under Coxswain Mark Mitchell and with six crew members onboard, launched and made its way to the scene in stormy conditions. The weather was overcast with showers and moderate seas as the boat launched but conditions progressed to a force 8 south westerly gale as the lifeboat approached Malin Head.The lifeboat arrived on scene at 0.45am and the crew assessed that the six fishermen were safe and well before working with them to establish a towline.With a tow set up, the lifeboat proceeded to take the fishing vessel into Lough Swilly. However, with deteriorating weather conditions and with both the tide and wind against them, a decision was made to tow the boat into Greencastle.During what was a slow tow, the lifeboat was assisted by Lough Swilly RNLI’s all-weather lifeboat which launched at 8am and assisted in bringing the fishing boat into Greencastle and putting the boat on its moorings.The Portrush crew arrived back at their station at approximately 1.15pm today.Speaking following the call out, Keith Gilmore, Portrush RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager said: ‘This has been a long and challenging call out for our volunteers in what were rough weather conditions but they were delighted to have been of assistance to the six fishermen who we would like to commend for doing the right thing and raising the alarm when their boat sustained engine failure. This call out is a fine example of volunteers showing their willingness to forgo a night’s sleep and the comfort of a warm bed and some food and using their skill and experience to face challenging weather conditions to help bring others to safety.’ Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA WhatsApp Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic By News Highland – October 2, 2017 Previous articleDCC’s Fire Service Plan to be discussed again before adoptionNext articleAerosmith’s Steven Tyler denies that he had a seizure last week following gig cancellations News Highland Twitter Homepage BannerNewscenter_img Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme Twitter Pinterest Facebook News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Google+ Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows RNLI releases video footage of trawler rescue off Donegal coast WhatsApp Community Enhancement Programme open for applicationslast_img read more

Roads have been added and, each year, the owners initiate a project to enhance the property, but always with the goal of keeping the property as natural and environmentally friendly as possible.On behalf the host organization, the Alabama TREASURE Forest Association, Deborah Huggins-Davis, president, expressed appreciation to the Renfroes for their support of Classroom in the Forest and their generosity in allowing the use of their farm.Classroom in the Forest was hosted by the ATFA with support from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Alabama Forestry Commission, 4-H, Alabama Extension and Pike County Farm-City. Sponsored Content By The Penny Hoarder CLASS IN THE FOREST: Students learn about nature in the woods “They were looking at things they would normally have walked on by and they were discovering things about the forest they never knew or perhaps never thought about,” she said.The students were divided into group and competed to see which group could find the largest number of different things in the forest.MacKenzie Gregory and her Banks School group found 11things in Mother Nature that the other groups didn’t find. And, perhaps, Braydon Arnett had the most unique find.“It’s a jawbone from a small animal, maybe a squirrel or a rat,” he said. “I was looking hard for things and saw something white. I went and picked it up and it was a bone.” You Might Like Richard Thrap’s tone was no-nonsense.“Anything can and will be used against you,” he told the group of Pike County Elementary School fifth-graders. Then, a smile crossed his face as he added, “…on a test. So, listen and remember.”Wildlife Conservationists Tharp and Bryan Rice were presenters at the 2018 Classroom in the Forest held at the Gene and Jana Renfroe family farm Tuesday with fifth-grade students from Pike County, Goshen and Banks schools participating.  Fifth-graders from Troy City and Pike Liberal Arts schools will be in the outdoor classroom today. By Jaine Treadwell “Classroom in the Forest is an annual event that provides an outdoor classroom experience for all fifth-grade students in the county,” said Randy Hale, chair of the Pike County Farm-City Committee, a sponsoring organization. “It’s an opportunity for the students to participate in hands-on learning experiences in pond management, wildlife and prescribed burning, a scavenger and a visit to the soil trailer.”Hale said in today’s world, some children don’t have many opportunities to experience nature. Classroom in the Forest provides them with a unique outdoor learning experience.Emily Rolling, Pike County Extension coordinator, said the scavenger hunt was a new Classroom in the Forest activity this year and one the 134 fifth-graders really enjoyed on Tuesday.last_img read more

US portal giant Zillow begins buying homes direct

first_imgHome » News » US portal giant Zillow begins buying homes direct previous nextProducts & ServicesUS portal giant Zillow begins buying homes directIn an ominous move for agents in the UK’s portal-dominated property market, Zillow will begin competing with agents for vendor instructions on its website.Nigel Lewis17th April 20180680 Views US property portal giant Zillow is to participate directly in the market and compete with agents for vendor leads which will soon see it buy homes directly from vendors.The property portal says it began testing its Instant Offers package in May last year in Las Vegas and Orlando to offer a “growing consumer demand for a faster, more efficient home selling process”, hardly a ringing endorsement of the agents who list their properties on the site.Vendors who are interested in selling their homes can submit their property’s details and will receive both a non-binding instant offer from Zillow, and a member agent’s estimate of its value.Although the portal reveals it will now be participating in the market and begin buying and selling homes in Phoenix and Las Vegas, it says the service in effect acts as a lead generator for agents and that the “vast majority of sellers who requested an Instant Offer [during testing] ended up selling their home with an agent”.“Even in today’s hot market, many sellers are stressed and searching for a more seamless way to sell their homes,” says Zillow Chief Marketing Officer Jeremy Wacksman (left).“They want help, and while most prefer to sell their home on the open market with an agent, some value convenience and time over price.”“This is expected to be a vibrant line of business for us and for our partners in the real estate industry, while providing homeowners with more choices and information.”Zillow also says it will create more business for its member agents. After purchasing a property and making any necessary repairs to it, the portal will then re-list the property for sale with a member agent.Read more about Zillow.Jeremy Wacksman. property portal zillow April 17, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

News story: New process for artists and sportspeople entering from Ireland

first_imgIt will be free to use and mean that eligible individuals in sporting and creative industries will be able to work in the UK for up to 3 months, bringing into line their entry conditions when arriving from other destinations.These new arrangements will allow musicians and sportspeople from countries such as Australia and America to apply for leave to enter remotely, putting an end to their requirement to apply for a visa to perform in the UK when entering through Ireland.This change follows close work with the sector and builds on the government’s already strong commitment to the creative industry. In June 2018 for example the exceptional talent visa was opened up to include leading fashion designers.Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes said: I am delighted to have worked, alongside our Live Music group, with the Home Office to identify a solution so that non-EU artists and their crews can still enter the UK via Ireland under a Certificate of Sponsorship. The live music industry, which contributes around £1 billion to the economy, will put this into practice so that we can continue to attract the biggest and most talented global artists to perform at our world-leading concerts, festivals and venues. UK Music’s CEO Michael Dugher said: Individuals will be required to have a Certificate of Sponsorship under the Tier 5 (Temporary worker – Creative and Sporting) route, which has been in existence since 2008. It provides an option for those non-EEA, non-visa nationals in the sporting and creative sector to undertake short-term engagement in the UK without being required to hold a visa to enter the UK.You can read detailed common travel area information on the process. Our creative industries are world leading. Not only do we produce elite talent, but we also host some of the most exciting live events in the world. Ensuring the best international talent can perform in the UK is vital for the creative industries’ continued success and that is why we launched this new process, ensuring creative talent can easily arrive to perform in the UK directly from Ireland. I look forward to continuing to work with UK Music and the wider sector so our leading live music industry can continue to thrive.last_img read more
