Recently, the Senate Rules and Administration Committee, chaired by Senator Chuck Schumer, approved the Elections Preparedness Requires Early Planning , which would require each state to develop contingency plans to address emergencies or natural disasters that threaten to disrupt the administration of federal elections.
The concept of deconstructing for the purpose of constructing something better can be extended to our thoughts and attitudes as well. Such efforts at reconstruction will ultimately allow for a more positive impression and hopefully more rewarding relationship as well.
Action Park was New Jersey's deadliest theme park. At least six people died from ride mishaps. So, of course it was the location of one of the most elusive water slides in existence: the loopty-loop water slide.
New York City received a lot of attention recently with a bold promise made to some of its youngest residents: Mayor Bill de Blasio ran on a campaign to fund full-day public preschool for all New York City children through a modest increased income tax on residents making more than $500,000 a year. Although Mayor de Blasio's tax proposal was not approved by the state legislature or supported by New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo, the legislature did approve statewide funding for pre-K that included a $300 million increase for New York City's preschool program. New York City is moving forward for children -- and it isn't the only major city and school district making strides towards providing high-quality public preschool programs to as many children as possible. Several large districts that have been doing this for a while are already seeing strong results.
Let us be clear. You pay a local service bill. It has charges on it that you must pay and you can't get service without it. If Verizon doesn't want to count these charges, then why shouldn't the customer have the right to not pay what's not being counted?
Apparently that's just the way they play politics in New Jersey. Screw your enemies and reward your friends. And that's exactly what I don't want to see in the White House, or in Congress or in any statehouse in the U.S. We had that with Nixon and look what happened.
It seems Verizon not only has most of their comments written by Verizon employees, many of whom don't identify themselves, but worse, almost every group backing Verizon has received funding or Verizon is on their board and supplies some financial help.
Your profession has been vilified, scapegoated, mined for profit, and deprofessionalized. On behalf of graduates of public schools, parents of children in public schools, those who value public education and teachers unions, we apologize.
As the only high school diploma equivalency tests accepted by all 50 states, changes to GED has a huge impact on the millions of people who hope to earn credentials equivalent to a high school diploma. This is particularly onerous on the poor.
The amount of funding available to young adults with autism drops dramatically once they age out of the system, and parents are often left struggling to find a place where their child can continue to work towards finding a job.
That question has been asked repeatedly since the legal team hired by Christie released its findings last week.
The bias is not political, but in favor of generating the most buzz, getting the most page views or the highest ratings. And eyeballs, especially in the Internet era, equal revenue.
How dare the Gov. snitch on my little fling with Bill?! We were both consenting Republicans at the time... I'm being slut-shamed like some little Sandra Fluke!
You know that you've failed when a Republican like Joseph Scarborough, host of the MSNBC show Morning Joe, says on his program that Randy Mastro, the so-called "independent" lawyer investigating Gov. Christie's bridge-closing scandal, sounded like Baghdad Bob at his press conference Thursday, and the political writer, Al Hunt -- also on the show -- said Mastro could have served as "Putin's lawyer." What will Christie do for his follow-up? One thing is for clear -- the woman in the George Washington Bridge scandal, Bridget Kelly, the sender of the traffic tie-up demand, is now in the crosshairs of the Mastro-led counterattack.
Even if federal and state legislative investigators are unable to prove that Christie gave the order for the bridge closures, or had advanced knowledge, he has no chance of becoming the Republican Party's nominee for president in 2016.
Like never before, Governor Chris Christie is being called out on a number of questionable actions by his administration. The once compliant legislatu...
