A federal judge is due to hear arguments on Wednesday over whether officials at the Terrebonne parish school acted correctly when they closed the Pointe-aux-Chênes elementary school earlier this year.

The school board voted 6-3 in April to send students to Montegut Elementary, about four miles away, starting this fall. Officials cited declining enrollment and cost savings through the consolidation of resources.

A dozen parents filed a lawsuit on June 11 in US District Court in New Orleans, ask a judge to keep the school open offering French language courses Native American and Cajun families in the small community have spoken for generations.

“The decision to close the PAC elementary school and to refuse the establishment of the requested French immersion program continues a pattern and practice of discrimination against Amerindian and Cajun children,” the lawsuit alleges.

Officials said they had not determined what to do with the building now that it is closed. About a hundred students attended elementary in Pointe-aux-Chênes before closing. At the time, Montegut elementary school had 143 students.

Pointe-aux-Chenes primary school before Hurricane Ida.

The school board had asked U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier to dismiss the lawsuit, but it allowed the case to continue in an order issued on November 2.

Barbier dismissed five of the six legal violations alleged by parents, including allegations that the board violated state laws by denying parents’ request to convert the school into an immersion program French.

School closed: The Terrebonne School Board votes to close Pointe-aux-Chenes elementary school as of the next school yearhear

But the judge cleared the case after finding that the parents had made “plausible” claims that the council had violated Title VI of the Federal Civil Rights Law of 1964. The law prohibits discrimination based on race, color or national origin in any program or activity that receives federal funds.

Barbier notes that the lawsuit alleges that the board of directors voted to close the school despite:

  • Testimony on its importance for Amerindian children.

  • A letter from experts supporting the need for a school that reflects the culture in Pointe-aux-Chênes.

  • A commitment from state officials to provide $ 1 million to keep the school open.

The judge also noted that, according to the plaintiffs, the Pointe-aux-Chênes elementary school was eligible for federal funds for Indian education and other programs.

“No report, analysis or evaluation, say the complainants, has been provided as to why the school board proposed to close the school, and no member of the school board has explained why the school should be closed. during the vote, ”Barbier said in his decision. let the matter go.

Barbier noted that the school board “seemed to ignore comments from the community,” and the judge found the plaintiffs’ allegations of discrimination to be “plausible.”

Superintendent of Schools Philip Martin and School Board Chairman Gregory Harding are also named as defendants. They are represented by Stanwood Duval from Duval, Funderburk, Sundbery, Richard & Watkins from Houma.

The plaintiffs are represented by Louis Koerner of the New Orleans law firm Koerner.

And now you know

Orange High School put its first football team on the field in 1909. Since the inception of this district competition, Orange has attempted to win a district championship. It finally happened in 1936.

On November 6, 1936, the Orange High School Tigers faced the Nederland Bulldogs in the first of three games to determine the District 33 B championship.

The week before that game, the Tigers had won a game with the biggest margin of the season when they beat the Port Neches Indians by a score of 62-0.

That same night, the Beaumont French High School Buffaloes met with Woodville High School and defeated that team 41-6. This game was the only game the Frenchman had been scored on.

The Tigers and Buffaloes were strong teams, French was the favorite to win the championship. The Tigers were expected to give as much as they received. The game was expected to be sold out.

The match was played at Howell Stadium in Orange in front of an estimated crowd of 3,000 fans.

Orange beat the Buffaloes by a score of 31-9, the worst loss the French high school team have suffered in three years. The Tigers had managed 20 first tries against three for the Buffaloes.

On Wednesday November 11, the Tigers met the Nederland Bulldogs. The match took place again at Howell Stadium in Orange, again with a sold-out crowd.

The Netherlands dominated Orange in the first half. At the end of the second half, Orange turned the tables and dominated the Netherlands, winning 14-0. Nederland had made seven first tries, Orange had made 17. The comeback was the strongest ever for a Tiger team.

On Friday, November 13, their third game in a week, the Tigers faced the Saratoga Gators for the game to determine the district champions. Orange beat the Gators 14-9 in a hotly contested game. Orange had made eight first single downs by Saratoga. Winning that game gave the Orange High School Tigers their very first District Championship.

Prior to this three-game series, in regular district play, Orange had scored 161 points. Their five opponents had scored zero points on the Tigers.

In 1929, coached by Lewis Gay, the Tigers enjoyed an unbeaten season, but due to difficulties completing the schedule, the game against the Beaumont South Park Greenies was counted against the Tigers. A group of district officials gave the title of district to Liberty.

The Orange leader wrote of the 1936 championship game: “The Tigers, coached by Ralph R. Gay, said to be one of the smartest and smartest mentors in all of South Texas, didn’t even never gave their opponents a chance to get into their own 10-yard line. The Netherlands were the only team played this season to reach the 20-meter line, and the Netherlands did not stay long.

This was the first district championship won by Orange High School, and later by Lutcher Stark High School. There would be more in school history, including the season the Tigers had a strong run for the state championship, advancing to the semifinal game in the fall of 1962.

“And now you know.”

Mediator calls for removal of Sephardic Chief Rabbi from religious court

Israel’s ombudsperson for justice is again calling for the possible impeachment of Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef from Jerusalem’s Grand Rabbinical Appeal Court.

Former Supreme Court Justice Uri Shoham said this was due to Yosef’s organization of a rabbinate conference against government-pushed reforms that would remove the Orthodox monopoly on Kashrut certification and religious conversions, following a complaint by the Israeli Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism. .

Shoham said the conference, which included rabbis from the state-run rabbinate, as well as municipal rabbis and rabbinical judges, violated ethical guidelines that prohibit officials from intervening in sensitive partisan matters.

In October 2020, Shoham asked the Rabbinical Judges Selection Committee to consider impeaching Yosef because of the controversial comments he made about women, Reform Judaism and the High Court of Justice, also in the wake of a complaint from the Israeli Movement for Reform and Progressive Judaism.

Yosef is the son of the late Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the former spiritual leader of the Shas political party, who vowed to protect Yosef last year but is now part of the opposition in the Knesset.

Religious Affairs Minister Matan Kahana, who was criticized at the conference, nonetheless supports Yosef’s right to express himself freely.

Other religious and right-wing politicians have also spoken out against Shoham and in defense of Yosef.

PARIS: Three candidates are preparing for the French presidential election scheduled for next April in France.

The socialist mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, the president of the far-right National Rally, Marine Le Pen, and the spokesperson for the far-left Lutte Ouvrière party, Nathalie Arthaud.

A fourth candidate, Valérie Pécresse, president of the Ile-de-France Regional Council, could join them if her fate is positively sealed at the end of the Congress of Right-wing Republicans.

During a congress scheduled for December 1 to 4, active supporters are called upon to vote and choose between five candidates, including Valérie Pécresse, who will wear the colors of the Republicans in the next presidential election.

Glass ceiling

If the latter is selected, four women will be candidates for the supreme office, which will be a first in France, compared to previous polls.

Does this mean that equality between women and men in public and political life has progressed? We cannot be so sure.

Equality in France can be well codified in legal texts, and if women can be present in various political bodies, power remains predominantly male.

Key positions like the presidency of the National Assembly, the presidency of the government, and of course the presidency of the republic itself remain reserved for men, until further notice.

The only exception in the history of the Fifth Republic was the appointment of Edith Cresson by former President François Mitterrand to the post of Prime Minister in 1991. For the rest, the rise of a woman to the highest office has always been braked. by the “glass ceiling”.

Only two women politicians, Le Pen and the former socialist minister Ségolène Royal, reached the second round of a presidential election. Royal had faced and lost former President Nicolas Sarkozy in 2007, while Le Pen suffered the same fate against President Emmanuel Macron in 2017.

Unpreparedness, fragmentation

It should be noted that both showed a lack of preparation against their respective competitors in the debate which usually precedes the second round of the elections. It is highly doubtful that any of the three – maybe four – female candidates in the starting blocks for 2022 will have a chance to make it to the second round.

The reasons for this doubt are integral to the nature of the upcoming campaign, which promises to be as difficult as it is volatile. The extreme fragmentation of the French political landscape certainly has something to do with it, as is the density of economic, social and security problems exacerbated by an endless health crisis of COVID-19.

But the reasons for doubt also lie in the positioning of each of the candidates and their characteristics. Anne Hidalgo, French of Spanish origin and mayor of Paris since 2014, snatched the socialist candidacy after a bitter battle with several officials of her party, always shattered since Macron came to power.

Her candidacy will suffer from the weakness of the party and the bad image that the French had of her during her years as mayor. It stagnates in the polls at a level that is too low, which does not exceed 5% of voting intentions and is struggling to be heard by voters.

They describe her as a bad and incompetent candidate with brutal methods and “not close to people”. So she is a really hated candidate, even in her own camp, where 49% feel the same.

On the other hand, Le Pen is better placed because it has the support of its party and progresses in the polls which give it between 19% and 21% of the voting intentions.

Le Pen’s deep legacy with the far-right party began at birth. She is the daughter of Jean-Marie Le Pen, the founder of the National Front, now known as the National Rally. However, his surprising breakthrough in 2017 in the second round of the last presidential election is far from certain this time around.

It comes up against a major obstacle, which is none other than the potential candidate columnist Eric Zemmour, who is slowly shattering his electoral base and who is credited, after a recent drop, with 15% of voting intentions.

Misogyny

Le Pen went to great lengths to distance himself from his father and to protect far-right politics from a more rudimentary approach. Here, she is forced to stand out from Zemmour, who does not shy away from any provocation, even the hatred of those killed and left behind.

Nathalie Arthaud, 60, is certainly the most serene of the candidates. It is already in its third campaign and is around 1% of voting intentions. Arthaud knows very well that she will never reach the second round, let alone the Elysee. She is content, as a good party activist – having joined at the age of 18 – to make the workers’ voice heard.

His campaign ideas and slogans are quite simple: increased salaries, free healthcare, retirement at age 60 and the end of French military operations abroad.

Barring a dramatic twist, a woman is unlikely to be elected to the presidency at the end of the 2022 election. Despite the shortcomings and obstacles facing the various candidates, the misogyny that continues to characterize the political class and even some French media.

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of his appointment to Matignon last May, Cresson described his mission to the press as “11 months of hell”. The only woman ex-French Prime Minister, now 87 years old, considers that she has been “betrayed everywhere”.

She explained, “Everything that I have successfully accomplished has not been reported, on the other hand they flagged and twisted my words to make the headlines.”

To prove her point, she said she told the then Foreign Minister Roland Dumas one-on-one that “the Japanese are working like ants.”

Her remarks were echoed by a French newspaper claiming that she had said “the Japanese are ants”, which provoked intense protests from Japan.

This is just one episode among many others told by Cresson, who became the target of the political class and the media and who believed himself sacrificed on the altar of misogyny.

However, this misogyny is still present in the French political class, to such an extent that the National Assembly has decided to opt for a harsh method to fight it: to halve the salary of a deputy if he makes sexist remarks. to a fellow deputy.

Imagine eating a meal, drinking alcohol, and spending the night in your elementary school. You can do all of this at the Seiryu Kyoto Kiyomizu hotel. The buildings were converted from the historic Kiyomizu Primary School, established in 1933 and closed in 2010.

The soil is preserved and used in such a way as to maintain its heritage, as are other parts of the old town. Its location is superb, along the front approach to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, one of Asia’s most renowned tourist sites. The hotel’s name, Seiryu, or blue dragon, is said to be the protector of the Higashiyama region where the temple dominates.

Just a 10-15 minute taxi ride from Kyoto station, I felt privileged as the car drove along the narrow street to the exclusive gate. Stunning views through the gate and courtyard without any distraction from the other buildings is a city break.

When you walk into the reception, you feel like you have stepped back in time. You can tell the hotel was a school. The reception was once the entrance to the faculty building. Opened in the spring of last year, the renovation was carried out by Aoyama Nomura Design (AND) under Nomura Co Ltd, one of Japan’s most renowned design companies, which won the Kukan Design Award 2020 for this hotel. .

There are a total of 48 rooms, most of them converted from old classrooms, averaging 50 square meters, including one suite of 136 square meters. My favorite is the Terrace Twin which overlooks the Higashiyama district, with the luxury of in-room dining on the terrace. I stayed in their Standard King. Its conventional architect feels modern; its interior is simple but comfortable, symbolizing the Japanese art of subtraction, or less is more. I imagined the former students playing in the courtyard as I looked through the classic windows in their original frames.

At the entrance to the guest lounge, you can peek around the archives corner for the remembrance of the old school and the renovation process. Overnight guests can access the all-day guest lounge where you can participate in a semi-tea ceremony experience or brew your own coffee from scratch. I tried making my own matcha tea with the help of the staff who kindly guided me through my weak memory. I had forgotten how delicious a bowl of green tea can be when you whip it yourself. You can also try out the presentation of Kyoto dishes and specialties, including sweets and sake, before shopping for souvenirs. Views of colorful foliage before my eyes added to the height of gracious relaxation.

I had dinner with Benoit Kyoto in the premises of the Seiryu hotel. Benoit is a bistro opened in Paris in 1912, loved by Parisians for over a century. It has become a place where the people of Kyoto come for traditional French cuisine.

“We don’t bother to sell ‘Kyoto products’ because the products we use usually come from local suppliers. We want the people of Kyoto to come and live a traditional French experience, ”says sommelier Takahiro Moto.

The atmosphere and spirit, as well as their logo, is very similar to Benoit in New York, but with an incredible view of Yasaka Pagoda through the church-shaped window that covers an entire side of the restaurant.

Your choice of 3 appetizers Photo: Mai Shoji

I had the à la carte set (7,480) – starter, main course, dessert and hot drink. I chose “3 bites of your choice” for the aperitif and with a glass of Crémate de Bourgogne Cube Agnès. I love duck and beets, so I chose “Duckling Dolce forte, red beet tart” with a glass of red Côtes du Rhône Villages Plan de Dieu as the main course. This traditional plate of roasted confit breast and thighs in a sweet and sour beetroot sauce is a delight. I ended with “Armagnac savarin, Chantilly” because nobody says no to classic savarin.

IMG_0008-2.jpg

You can’t miss the K36 The Bar and Rooftop rooftop bar during your stay. With no buildings to block out the cityscape and stunning views, this bar is in high demand. Only hotel guests, or visitors participating in Benoit’s course menu, have the privilege of making reservations at this bar. The radiators keep you warm even on a cold evening and the warm, subdued candle light creates a very romantic ambiance.

Another must-see feature is the butler that stays in the indoor bar which was the art room during school days. Minoru Nishida is one of Kyoto’s most famous bartenders and knows his hometown very well. “When it rains, the staff who normally work on the terrace come in, so I head to my other bar, which bothers some customers not to find me here.” said Nishida. This is how he is popular. I tried his Salty Dog (1,650) from the original 1940s UK recipe, with gin instead of vodka and lime, not grapefruit. I couldn’t resist trying its version of Cosmopolitan (¥ 1,650) either. The cranberry sauce on the Baccarat rim makes the cocktail like no other.

Informed about Kyoto by the chatty butler, it was time for me to be done. Even though the hotel is in a popular tourist destination, everything is peaceful and calm and I had a good night’s sleep in the comfortable king-size bed after a hot soak in the western-style tub.

I went downstairs for breakfast the next morning, excited to try their ‘feel-good’ breakfast. The warm sunlight streaming in from the high ceilings of the old auditorium and the smiles of the staff greeted me. The concept is Library Restaurant and Bar, where over a thousand books sit on the shelves waiting for customers to take them out and even bring them back to their rooms. The upper shelves are occupied by 27 book covers in degraded colors in traditional Nishijin fabric. The dishes are prepared in the open kitchen where the auditorium stage was located. “Now the chefs are taking over with their cooking. Explains Chen Li Ting, from the sales and marketing department.

IMG_0025.jpg

Over 1,100 books are housed in the Library Restaurant and Bar. Photo: Mai Shoji

A waiter serves me appetizers and green vegetable juice with soy milk when I arrive. Unexpectedly, I was then presented with a small cup of soup, a fresh salad with delicious French miso dressing, fresh fruit and yogurt, as the staff handed me a menu for the main course. Out of six, I chose the Japanese breakfast. The amberjack for the grilled fish of the day is very lightly simmered, like Kyoto seasoning. The elegantly flavorful white miso soup warmed my soul. The small dish including tofu and pickles are all locally produced. I highly recommend this choice if you want to taste the best of Kyoto all at once. The menu choices were created by a prestigious Doctor of Medical Sciences and you can ‘study a good breakfast’ inside the old learning house.

IMG_0002-2.jpg

I had a clear mind, felt remarkably healthy and was ready for another day of adventure. I walked through the hills to the Kiyomizu-dera temple, finding many girls in rented kimono. Then I returned to my room and took another quick bath in the beautiful tub looking out over the courtyard.

IMG_0022.jpg

Seiryu offers three private baths where you can fully experience the healing power of Kiyomizu, which means sacred water. Guests can also use the fitness room equipped with the latest MATRIX machines.

Walking around the hotel might have been the best part of my trip. A red pole from a century ago stands intact in the playground. Graffiti, scribbles and scribbles remain on the stair handles and pillars of the former students. The wooden stairs are dented along the handle as most students held the handle when going up and down the stairs. Works of art by various artists are on display in 21 locations within the complex, including the symbolic “Rinkai” by Raku Masaomi. Such a beautiful old building restored and used for different purposes is quite inspiring.

“We have alumni from Kiyomizu Primary School staying at our hotel.” says Mina Kajihara, head of the sales and marketing department. It must be the ultimate luxury to know what the gardens were like and see them transformed into an establishment loved by people all over the world.

Storm King Art Center, in Windsor, New York, has appointed Nora Lawrence as artistic director and chief curator. Lawrence, who held the post of curator at the Outdoor Sculpture Center for ten years, will be the first to take on the newly created post of artistic director. She will assume her new dual roles in January 2022, overseeing the museum’s curatorial program, collection, acquisitions, site-specific commissions, temporary exhibitions, publications and archives. David R. Collens, who has served as Director since 1974, will become Director Emeritus, in which capacity he will work with Lawrence and Storm King President John P. Stern in support of conservation projects. Collens will also remain an ex-officio member of the institution’s board of directors.

Lawrence joined the institution in 2011 and has since been instrumental in bringing new artists to Storm King. Among his accomplishments to date, we can mention the creation in 2013 of the Perspectives program, which invites an emerging or mid-career artist to create a work in situ for the institution. In 2015, the Lawrence and Storm King Educational and Public Programs team, in collaboration with Shandaken Projects, launched the museum’s first artist residency. Recent exhibitions and projects that Lawrence has developed include “Indicators: Artists on Climate Change” (2018); “Mark Dion: Madness” (2019); “Light of the Kiki Smith River” (2020); “Rashid Johnson: The Crisis” (2021); and the permanent installation of Sarah Sze Fallen sky, 2021.

“This is a pivotal moment for the institution,” Stern noted. “Over the past few years, the reach of Storm King’s conservation program has grown in exciting ways. We have innovated with new orders and acquisitions and maintained relationships with artists of various practices and backgrounds. Stern went on to praise Collens for his efforts over the course of more than four decades, giving him credit for shaping the institution before turning to Lawrence, stating: newly created role. We appreciate his deep commitment to artists and his thoughtful understanding of sculpture in dialogue with the landscape.

“No place is like Storm King and no job could be like this – the possibilities that Storm King offers artists and cultural practitioners are limitless,” Lawrence said. “Working with artists to realize their visionary and unique projects and programs is extremely meaningful to me, and I am constantly inspired by the approaches artists take to our site and our history. There is so much exciting work in our collective future.

Marine precipitation allows firefighters to turn to fuel management https://galerie-lachenaud.com/marine-precipitation-allows-firefighters-to-turn-to-fuel-management/ Mon, 15 Nov 2021 21:47:15 +0000 https://galerie-lachenaud.com/marine-precipitation-allows-firefighters-to-turn-to-fuel-management/ Marin County firefighters are clearing brush along Lower Dover Drive in Inverness on Thursday, November 11, 2021. The work is part of the county’s vegetation management program to reduce the fire danger. (Alan Dep / Marin Independent Journal) Marin County fire crews clear brush along Lower Dover Drive in Inverness on Thursday, November 11, 2021 […]]]>

Early and heavy rains allowed the Marin County Fire Department to shift its seasonal firefighting force from a wildfire sentry mission to critical brush clearing projects typically reserved for the winter.

The change reflects a slightly earlier end to the Mariner’s critical fire season compared to recent years, fire officials said.

“It’s based on the rain and the weather forecast, since we’ve had so much rain here,” said Battalion Commander Todd Overshiner.

As a result, some winter season vegetation management efforts began in the last week of October and are now the primary focus of local fire departments, he said.

Captain Jordan Reeser, director of vegetation management for the Marin County Fire Department, said the release of seasonal firefighters waiting to fight wildfires in early November occurred about a month earlier than usual.

“We now have this extra manpower that we can put to work,” he said of the two teams of 14 now available to help with the fuel reduction work.

County brush clearing projects are funded by the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority’s plot tax passed in 2020 or by CalFire grants. For this reason, said Reeser, “there is no net cost to the county” for the early transition of seasonal firefighters into field management work.

Two AmeriCorps teams have been reassigned to carry out vegetation management, said Battalion Commander Bret McTigue. They will be at Le Marin until mid-December.

Key projects through December involve cleaning up and reducing fuels and strengthening escape routes, Reeser said.

This week, teams plan to increase the defensible space around homes and clear escape routes at Pacheco Valle in Novato and Inverness Ridge in West Marin. Fuel reduction efforts are also planned at Throckmorton Ridge, the San Geronimo Valley and around the Golden Gate Village in Marin City.

Elsewhere in Marin, various fuel management projects are underway.

Novato District Fire Protection Battalion Chief John Dicochea said staff members had just completed free days of wood chipping at Black Point. Teams are also present in Highland Marin Park to pull broom grass and on Ignacio Valley Road to prune undergrowth and tree branches to improve ground clearance.

The ministry has also hired a full-time Vegetation Management Program Manager.

“Now is the time to start working on these projects, when we don’t think about it,” Dicochea said.

In San Rafael, ongoing projects were helped by the first rains.

The city has a team that goes door-to-door to advise people on defensible space work and runs a free juniper removal program using AmeriCorps workers.

Russell Albano, manager of the defensible space program, said fire crews and the city’s open space team create shady fuel cuts where large, healthy trees are kept but where “fuel scales up.” ‘to the canopy’ are deleted.

A project to clear the hillside streets to remove roadside vegetation from surfaces and edges is also expected to start.

The Southern Marin Fire District’s prevention division is working on two grant-funded fuel reduction projects, said Elysha Omoomy, communications coordinator.

The Tamalpais fuel cut, a 4.5 mile area bordering the edge of the National Park Service property and the Tamalpais Valley, is entering its second phase. Approximately 1.5 miles of breaks have been completed, and the next phase will be near homes along Marin Drive, Smith Road, and Lower Autumn Lane.

A second project in Mill Valley has been underway since August on 26 acres in a high severity fire zone along Hillside and Greenwood avenues. Teams remove large areas of brush, broom, Monterey pines and junipers.

“In the last 60 days, we have already completed about 50% of the work described in the work,” said Omoomy.

Reducing fuel on paved roads run by Southern Marin and Mill Valley firefighters each month aims to clear eight to 10 streets. The next project is scheduled for November 21. Southern Marin firefighters are also planning to run free wood chipping weeks starting in December.

In Sausalito, teams work to create a fuel cut along Woodward Street, removing tree branches and the French broom. Maintenance of the fuel cuts on Spring Street and Gordon Street was completed on Friday.

While prescribed and prescribed burn efforts were initially planned in parts of the county this fall, early precipitation hampered efforts, Reeser said. Burning is unlikely to occur until 2022, in late spring or early summer, when grasses are drying out.

Treating grasses is not as much of a concern as the impact of drought on large fuels, especially wood, said Reeser. Without more rain this winter, these conditions will persist, he said.

“We will definitely continue to monitor long-term drought in our forest areas… because that’s really where it comes into effect,” he said.

Residents of Marin will notice the increased efforts in their neighborhoods over the coming months, he said.

“They’re going to see a lot more work all year round – vegetation management is going to be a year round commitment,” Reeser said. “Winter gives us a lot more opportunities for many reasons… as long as the weather permits. “

Kamala Harris criticized for using “French accent” with French scientists while touring Paris laboratory
Vice president Kamala harris went viral after visiting a COVID-19[female[feminine laboratory in Paris for appearing to use what critics have described as a “French accent”.

During his trip abroad to France, Harris visited the Institut Pasteur and spoke with a group of scientists from the French-American Alliance on Scientific Research.

She also commented on how politicians should function more like scientists. Harris then turned to what politicians do, scoffing at how they always stick to the “plan” they campaigned on – but appeared to repeatedly change her dialect every time she did. was using this phrase.

“In government we campaign with ‘The Plan’,” Harris said. “Uppercase T, uppercase P, ‘The Plan!’ And then the environment is such that we’re supposed to stand up for ‘The Plan’ even when the first time we deploy it, there may be issues and it’s time to re-evaluate and then do it again. “

The vice president’s remarks have been called “cringe” on social media.

Harris has been widely seen as the Democratic Party’s flagship in 2024 if President Biden does not run for a second term, but polls have seen her even more negatively than her boss. A recent USA Today / Suffolk University poll showed Harris had a 28% approval rating among Americans, ten points lower than Biden. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR TOP STORY.

Prosecutors could be banned from trying Rittenhouse again if prosecutors intentionally cause the trial to be canceled: expert
Wisconsin prosecutors could be banned from trying again Kyle Rittenhouse if a defense motion to quash the trial is granted and the court decides prosecutors intentionally caused the trial to be quashed, legal experts say.

Rittenhouse’s attorneys on Wednesday requested that the trial be set aside for the series of questioning directed at their client, prompting circuit judge Bruce Schroeder to lash out with anger at the attorney general. He did not speak to the motion.

Kenosha County Deputy District Attorney Thomas Binger was cross-examining Rittenhouse, who is accused of shooting three men, two of them fatally, on a night of chaotic protests and riots in Kenosha last year. Binger asked Rittenhouse about his silence after his arrest and the use of lethal force to protect his property.

“I was amazed when you began your questioning by commenting on the accused’s silence after the arrest,” Schroeder told Binger after the jury was led out of the courtroom. “This is the basic law. It has been the basic law in this country for 40 years, 50 years. I don’t know why you would do something like this. You know very well that a lawyer cannot go into this. kind of areas when the judge has already ruled without asking outside the presence of the jury to do so. So don’t give me that. It’s number one. “

Following the contentious exchange, defense lawyers requested that the trial be set aside. If the request is granted, prosecutors could re-file the homicide and attempted murder charges against Rittenhouse, unless a court finds that they willfully caused the trial to be quashed in an attempt to get a second chance in the case, Alan dershowitz, a Harvard law professor, told Fox News.

SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket takes off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center
by SpaceX The Falcon 9 rocket lifted off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla. On Wednesday evening after repeated delays.

The Crew Dragon capsule, which sat on top of the Falcon 9 rocket before the separation, will take the Crew-3 expedition to the International Space Station, replacing the Crew-2 of NASA, European and Japanese astronauts who returned to Earth Monday.

Crew-3 was originally supposed to launch early on Halloween morning, but it was deferred due to bad weather and unspecified medical problems among the astronauts.

On board the mission are NASA astronauts Kayla Barron, 34, Raja Chari, 44, Thomas Marshburn, 61, and Matthias Maurer, 51, of the European Space Agency.

The crew is expected to arrive at the ISS approximately 24 hours after take-off. Their mission, which will include science experiments, ISS maintenance and spacewalks, will last six months.

Wednesday’s launch comes after four astronauts returned to Earth on Monday, overlapping with SpaceX to end a 200-day space station mission that began last spring. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE.

A candidate who had hoped to challenge the outgoing Republican from central Arkansas, United States Representative French Hill has said he is ending his campaign and heading for a race for the state Senate.

Democrat Nick Cartwright said Monday he is no longer running for Arkansas 2nd Congressional District and instead will run for State Senate District 18, a seat currently held by Senator Jonathan Dissman, R-Beebe. It comes as the state legislature has proposed new district maps that would drastically change the boundaries of the state’s four seats in the US House of Representatives.

In an interview, Cartwright said the redistribution wasn’t necessarily a factor in his decision to quit the congressional race.

“We were against what the legislature did in Pulaski County, did in the 2nd District; remove the majority of people of color from the district and add an almost all-white county, ”Cartwright said. “That being said, we actually saw this as an opportunity to get into a county that is closer to my home and more rural, so I figured I could get in touch with these people.”

The new US House district map that received initial legislative approval adds Cleburne County to District 2 and excludes part of southeastern Pulaski County.

Cartwright cited fundraising challenges, saying he raised just under $ 20,000 in the last quarter. He says he also did not receive any advice from national Democratic Party organizers, who had invested significant resources in previous campaigns for the 2nd District seat.

“I think this district kind of left a bad taste in your mouth with its proximity in the polls and then the margins ended up being bigger than you expected,” Cartwright said. “I think we’re finding that across the country they’re a bit hesitant to put in a ton of resources at first, so I think it struck me as someone who maybe didn’t have that much. name identification as a Joyce Elliott or a Clarke Tucker.

Joyce Elliott and Clarke Tucker, both Democratic senators from Little Rock, faced Rep. Hill in the 2nd District race in 2020 and 2018, respectively. While the polls for both races showed a neck-and-neck contest in the days leading up to the election, Elliott and Tucker both ended up losing by more than five points.

Cartwright says running for the state legislature will give him more time to focus on issues affecting rural Arkansans, such as better access to broadband internet service and improved public education. Cartwright says the new state Senate district map creates a more competitive district, potentially increasing Democrats’ chances.

“I want to give a voice to the rural people of White County, Faulkner and Cleburne County because for so long they really had no choice at the polls. And so, regardless of the party, I’m excited to see where the talk is going in this race. “

Senator Jonathan Dissman, R-Beebe, has not said whether he is running for re-election and has considered running for lieutenant governor in the past. With Cartwright’s exit from the race, educator and entrepreneur Quintessa Hathaway is now the only Democrat to challenge Republican Representative French Hill for the seat of the 2nd Congressional District.
