DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter On this day in history: July 15th, 1971From The History Channel During a live television and radio broadcast, President Richard Nixon stuns the nation by announcing that he will visit communist China the following year. The statement marked a dramatic turning point in U.S.-China relations, as well as a major shift in American foreign policy.Nixon was not always so eager to reach out to China. Since the Communists came to power in China in 1949, Nixon had been one of the most vociferous critics of American efforts to establish diplomatic relations with the Chinese. His political reputation was built on being strongly anti-communist, and he was a major figure in the post-World War II Red Scare, during which the U.S. government launched massive investigations into possible communist subversion in America.By 1971, a number of factors pushed Nixon to reverse his stance on China. First and foremost was the Vietnam War. Two years after promising the American people “peace with honor,” Nixon was as entrenched in Vietnam as ever. His national security advisor, Henry Kissinger, saw a way out: Since China’s break with the Soviet Union in the mid-1960s, the Chinese were desperate for new allies and trade partners. Kissinger aimed to use the promise of closer relations and increased trade possibilities with China as a way to put increased pressure on North Vietnam–a Chinese ally–to reach an acceptable peace settlement. Also, more importantly in the long run, Kissinger thought the Chinese might become a powerful ally against the Soviet Union, America’s Cold War enemy. Kissinger called such foreign policy ‘realpolitik,’ or politics that favored dealing with other powerful nations in a practical manner rather than on the basis of political doctrine or ethics.Nixon undertook his historic “journey for peace” in 1972, beginning a long and gradual process of normalizing relations between the People’s Republic of China and the United States. Though this move helped revive Nixon’s sagging popularity, and contributed to his win in the 1972 election, it did not produce the short-term results for which Kissinger had hoped. The Chinese seemed to have little influence on North Vietnam’s negotiating stance, and the Vietnam War continued to drag on until U.S. withdrawal in 1973. Further, the budding U.S.-China alliance had no measurable impact on U.S.-Soviet relations. But, Nixon’s visit did prove to be a watershed moment in American foreign policy–it paved the way for future U.S. presidents to apply the principle of realpolitik to their own international dealings.For more information on this day in history, or for videos, go here.

District and UF complete collaborative three-year investigation into Florida springs’ health

From the St. John’s River Water Management DistrictScientists and engineers with the St. Johns River Water Management District and the University of Florida have completed a collaborative multi-year science investigation into the health of priority spring systems. The partnership was launched in 2014 to develop an enhanced scientific foundation to help identify the most effective projects and strategies to protect or restore the district’s Outstanding Florida Springs.“The state of Florida and the St. Johns River Water Management District has made protection of Florida’s Outstanding Florida Springs one of our highest priorities,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann B. Shortelle. “The challenge for water managers is finding a balance that provides environmental protection while also meeting people’s water needs and allowing for continued enjoyment of these unique natural resources. As a result of this cutting-edge effort, our path forward on springs protection and restoration will continue to be informed by the very latest science.”In 2014, the district launched the three‑year investigation and engaged the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) and the UF Water Institute to assist with research, experimentation, data collection and analysis. The partnership is called the Collaborative Research Initiative on Sustainability and Protection of Springs, or CRISPS.“For the past three years, the University of Florida has proudly joined the district in their commitment to the protection of Florida’s springs,” said Dr. Jack Payne, IFAS senior vice president for Agriculture and Natural Resources. “Along the way, the scientists from our two organizations have established a partnership that has answered important questions and that can help answer many more questions in the years to come. This is what the land-grant mission of UF/IFAS is all about — science in the service of society. Collaboration with the district has been a great opportunity to do work that is relevant and beneficial to all Floridians.”“Collaboration across scientific disciplines and areas of expertise has allowed the team to perform research and experimentation specifically targeting the uniqueness of spring systems and to gather significant ecological data and analyze them from multiple perspectives,” said Casey Fitzgerald, director of the district’s Springs Protection Initiative.“Florida’s springs are complex ecosystems that require multifaceted strategies for effective protection and management,” said Dr. Wendy Graham, director of the UF Water Institute. “In order for the state of Florida to spend its springs protection and restoration dollars wisely, cooperative interdisciplinary efforts, such as this one, that bring researchers and managers together are essential.”“UF has partnered with the district for the past four decades on various projects that dealt with management and restoration of ecosystems with the St. Johns River Basin, and the success of the CRISPS project is an example of this joint effort,” said Dr. K. Ramesh Reddy, chair of UF’s Soil and Water Sciences Department and Principal Investigator of the project. “The findings of this multi-year effort provide much-needed information toward developing enhanced management strategies to protect and restore springs. These foundational research efforts must be continued to develop long-term innovative and sustainable solutions to protect these fragile ecosystems.”Since 2014, the district has cost-shared with local governments, utilities and agricultural interests on more than 80 projects protecting spring water flow and water quality. The district has contributed more than $35 million toward vital springs protection projects, resulting in more than 62 million gallons of alternative water supplied and 4 million gallons of water a day (mgd) conserved. These projects also have reduced total nitrogen to priority spring systems by 990,000 pounds and total phosphorus by 19,400 pounds.The final report is available on the district’s website at www.sjrwmd.com/waterways/springs/springs-science-investigation/.For more information about springs within the district, visit the district’s website at www.sjrwmd.com/waterways/springs.

Jerome Kaino issued warning for dangerous off the ball tackle

first_imgFriday Mar 11, 2016 Jerome Kaino issued warning for dangerous off the ball tackle Jerome Kaino has been given a Citing Commissioner Warning for an off the ball tackle he made earlier today against the Hurricanes, in the opening game of round three of Super Rugby. Kaino was only penalised at the time, but hooker Leni Apisai went off straight after the knock.Kaino was warned after contravening Law 10.4(e) Dangerous tackling around the head.He went for Apisai, thinking that the Hurricanes hooker might receive the ball on the inside, but went through with the tackle regardless, making contact way too high in the process.A Citing Commissioner Warning may be issued by the SANZAAR Citing Commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the Red Card threshold for citings. Upon further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed a Citing Commissioner Warning was appropriate.All Black flanker Kaino actually missed the opening round of Super Rugby due to being sent off in a warm up match against the Chiefs. On that occassion he received a straight red card for punching Pauliasi Manu. While it looked like he was trying to free himself, it connected with the face.Below is the incident from a few weeks ago, with today’s tackle looping aboveView more of Kaino’s big tackles over the years in the Related Posts below the videoADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The site is where the elevated 101 Freeway connects to the surface streets at Market and becomes Octavia Boulevard – the entrance to north/west sector of San Francisco. The First Baptist Church with its classical façade and strong cornice is one pylon of this entrance. Mirroring this mass, on the other side of Octavia Boulevard, 8 Octavia completes the gateway. This entry is seen as an opportunity to present our new city, one that folds tradition and innovation.The long thin mass of building floats above the street to make public commercial space at both ends.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteTraditional San Francisco facades are pretty, with delicate vertical articulation, but now buildings also have other work to do. They need to protect and temper with as little energy and resources as possible. Skins of building have to be alive, breathing and changing with the time of day and seasons, responding to the variation in climatic conditions to adjust the interiors. On this predominantly western façade, each occupant can modulate the sunlight and sound in their unit, controlling the temperature and re-drawing the exterior elevation as they do, displaying their occupancy to the city outside as a constantly changing billboard. Ornament is replaced by instrument.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteBUILDING COMMUNITYTo create serenity on this busy boulevard, vertical rear yards are carved into the long mass, slices that weave through the building articulating the façade in proportion to surrounding buildings. The required ‘rear yard’ open space is divided into four parts to optimize the benefits of openness. These slices expand the girth of exterior wall, increasing the opportunities for interior light. Residences are entered via bridges through these common courts. Instead of a corridor, one arrives at home through a shared courtyard which creates opportunities for interaction and connection.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteTHE URBAN HOUSELofts provide occupants freedom to construct their own home by the arrangement of furniture in an open plan with minimum walls and constraints. We have based these dwellings on this type. Services are compressed along common thick walls, or in floating pods, highly rationalized, systematic, and rigorously stacked for economies. This achieves parallel goals of compression facilitating openness; and rationality achieving economy.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe units are composed of a kit of parts. The one is a two-bedroom L-shaped courtyard house, arranged around the vertical voids. The other type is an I-shaped single bedroom unit with generous open space and an efficient pod containing all the services and mechanisms of domestic life floating in the space. At the top of the building L’s and I’s are combined into U’s to form 3 bedroom penthouse units which have private roof terraces accessed with spiral stairs.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteOur goal is to put design within reach with spaces which engender freedom for the occupants, agglomerate around communal courts, and make a memorable urban object that marks this important locus in the city.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteProject gallerySee allShow lessBioclimatic and Biophilic Boarding House / Andyrahman ArchitectSelected ProjectsCall for Submissions: New York State Pavilion Ideas CompetitionIdeasProject locationAddress:San Francisco, CA, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Student with replica handgun sparks lockdown ahead of high school graduation

first_img(SANTA ROSA, Calif.) — A 15-year-old student with a highly realistic replica handgun sparked a swift response from police ahead of a California high school graduation on Friday afternoon.The teen apparently drew the weapon, which was later determined to be a pellet gun, in Santa Rosa High School’s music building just before 11 a.m. Another student saw the weapon and reported it to the school’s resource officer, Matt Crosbie, according to the Santa Rosa Police Department.Crosbie immediately ordered the school to be placed on lockdown while he and five other officers quickly responded to the music room. The suspect had left the building, which prompted a continued lockdown and hourslong search for the teenager, police said.“During the search, Santa Rosa Police received information that the student may have fled campus as the lockdown was being initiated,” police said in a statement. “He was reported to have gone to the McDonald’s located across the street from Santa Rosa High School.”Police located the student in the neighborhood surrounding the school, and was arrested without incident at 12:48 p.m., authorities said.He no longer had the weapon on him, but later admitted to tossing it in a garbage can at the McDonald’s.The student, whose name will not be released as a minor, is being held at Sonoma County Juvenile Justice Center on a charge of possession of a weapon on school grounds.Authorities said the student had been suspended from school and was not supposed to be on campus Friday.Santa Rosa, which has an enrollment of over 2,000 students, is one of the largest schools in the Bay Area.Seniors were practicing on the football field for the evening’s graduation when the lockdown was put in place and were immediately rushed into the school’s gymnasium, according to San Francisco ABC station KGO. Underclassmen were still taking final exams.“I was scared for my son. I was worrying outside the school. But I talked with him [by cellphone] and he said, ‘Yeah, Mom, I’m OK,’” Evelia Benavides, whose son graduated Friday evening, told KGO.Parents were told to go to Santa Rosa Junior College, located adjacent to the high school, to be reunited with students.The day was surreal for graduates, who huddled in classrooms during the lockdown before walking across the stage at graduation hours later.“I was with my friends crying and really scared, being here today and celebrating at the end of that was really, really special for me and made me value it so much more,” said senior Grace Alchemy.The scare took place just hours prior to a fired employee walked into his former place of business in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and shot and killed 12 people before being killed by police.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
