Census outcomes result in 12 seats in Congress switching states
3 years 30 weeks ago
Anonymous

The United States Census had some surprising outcomes. One of them is changes to Congressional representation. There are 12 seats that will belong to different states in the House of Representatives from now on. Republicans are likely to realize probably the most increases, as the brand new seats are in strong Republican districts.

Census makes House switch 12 seats

Some areas had to have changed in the number of seats within the House of Representatives, based on the Washington Post. This was due to the U.S. Census. As states have a number of seats within the House of Representatives, shifts in population can mean seats gained or lost. In all, 12 seats are switching, affecting 18 states. Probably the most seats were added to Texas. In fact, four House seats were added. Florida gained House seats also. It got 2 extra. Arizona, Georgia, South Carolina, Nevada, Utah, and Washington State all gained one additional seat in the lower house. A single set was lost be Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. New York and Ohio lost also. 2 seats were lost from both.

Human population expansion slowed down throughout last census

There has been less population growth within the United States then before. AOL News reports this to be observed in the 2010 Census. Since 2000, there has only been a 9.7 percent population expansion of about 308,745,538 people. It was not that low since the Great Depression even. Nevada's population rose the most, growing by 35.1 percent, while Michigan was the only state to lose individuals, having shrunk by 0.6 percent. A 14.3 percent increase was shown in the Southern states. Only 3.2 percent expansion increase was shown in the Northeast states.

Spokane police find bomb near Martin Luther King Day celebration
3 years 30 weeks ago

A Martin Luther King Day parade in Spokane, Wash., was almost the scene of a tragedy. Spokane workers found an explosive device near the parade route. Before the celebration began, city employees for Spokane discovered a backpack which had wiring, and the police were alerted. The culprit hasn't been found, and the reason is unknown. The FBI has taken over the case.

Before parade, Spokane police defuse bomb

In Spokane, Wash., a Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade was very nearly turned into the scene of a terrible tragedy, as employees of the city of Spokane found a bomb, according to MSNBC. There were city employees looking at the parade route about a half hour before the start when the Spokane explosive device was found. An unattended backpack that was sitting on a metal bench was found by city workers. The backpack stuck out because it had suspicious looking wires coming out of it, which caused the city workers to call the Spokane Police. The parade was delayed and rerouted as the explosive device disposal unit came to get rid of the machine.

Many would have been hurt

The bomb going off would have “inflict multiple casualties” as it was “viable” which the Spokesman Review reports. This was after the Federal Bureau of Investigation reports. The crowd would have had shrapnel blown into it depending on the way the bomb was positioned. It was facing marchers within the crowd. Also within the backpack were 2 t-shirts. “Treasure Island Spring Break 2009” and “Stevens County Relay for Life 2010” were what they said. The pipe explosive device found in the backpack, in accordance with ABC, was rigged to be detonated remotely by radio.

March for justice for Marvin Booker and all the victims of police terror!

March for justice for Marvin Booker and all the victims of police terror!
Saturday January 29, 6pm, Meet at the Denver Skatepark

No justice, no peace...

Six months ago,Denver sheriff's deputies murdered Marvin Booker. Since then, there has been no justice.

We are still here, we are still angry, and we are still demanding accountability. Until then, there will be no peace.
...
In the six months since Marvin's murder while in custody at the Van Cise-Simonet Justice Center, nothing has changed. The deputies that murdered Marvin still guard other prisoners, after the Denver DA refused to press charges. The videotaped evidence of the entire incident has never been released to the public, under the claim that an internal affairs investigation is still ongoing.

Six months later, and nothing has changed. In the months since Marvin's murder, dozens of allegations have been leveled against Denver metro area law enforcement departments of abuse, assault, rape, and misconduct.

In Aurora, a DARE officer distributed child pornography. In Denver, a police officer raped women and threatened them with arrest if they failed to give in to his advances or tried to report his actions. In Denver, lawsuit after lawsuit has been filed alleging extreme police violence. In Denver, police assaulted a disabled woman for not opening the door fast enough for them. In Lakewood, police killed an unarmed man who was stealing money to pay his rent and take care of his family.

This isn't just about a few bad apples. This is about the role of police and policing within our society.

Community Leaders Outraged by "Secure Communities Program"

COMMUNITY LEADERS EXPRESS OUTRAGE OVER SECURE COMMUNITIES PROGRAM, CALL ON GOVENOR RITTER TO REVERSE EXECUTIVE ORDER

DENVER, CO- Concerned community members, human rights advocates, journalists, clergy, business owners, authors, political activists, labor union leaders, and educators are outraged at Governor Bill Ritter’s Executive Order to introduce Colorado into the federal Secure Communities Program. This program authorizes law enforcement agencies to execute federal immigration laws, creating an environment conducive to racial profiling, harassment and discrimination targeting immigrants and Latinos residing or visiting the State of Colorado.

“This Executive Order is bad social and economic policy at a time when the Latino and immigrant community are besieged by anti-immigrant sentiment and additional funds necessary to implement this order will further strain limited state resources. The Executive Order is a wrongheaded approach to solve the immigration issue in Colorado. The implementation of these policies can hinder rather than attain public safety when it increases community mistrust of the police; the same people we should trust to protect us rather than racially profile us and separate us from our families.” stated Solomon Juarez, President of the Denver Metro Chapter of the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA). “The impact of this policy will be felt not just by immigrants but also the broader Latino community.”

Why Violence Doesn’t Work

When I was seventeen years old I was involved in a political protest that was violent. It was not meant to hurt anyone – in fact it was specifically designed not to by the two people who planned it – nonetheless it was not an act of non-violence. It was an act of violent protest at a university meant to protest links to the government of South Africa and its system of apartheid at the time. It was 1989-1990 and for people across the world, especially young people, it was an issue of major concern.

Say No to Drugs Holiday Classic Produces Good Turn Out Despite Rain
3 years 34 weeks ago
Anonymous

The annual Say No To Drugs Holiday Classic 5K/10K and 1 mile race took place on Saturday, December 18 at 8:00 a.m. in Coachman Park with over 1,700 participants showing up despite the rain. Participants of the Pinellas County Drug Court participated in the event in order to enjoy a healthy activity and to stay clean and away from drugs.

At 8:00 a.m., Sally Gatza sang a rendition of the Star Spangled Banner prior to the starting horn. The race took participants over the challenging incline of the Memorial Causeway, out to Clearwater Beach, then back to Coachman Park where a post-race pancake breakfast was served under a big tent. During the breakfast, runners were able to get information and free “Truth About Drugs” DVDs from the Foundation for a Drug-Free World booth.

The Say No to Drugs Holiday Classic is presented by the Dianetics Athletics Association, and was founded in 1988 when Scientologist and word-class athlete Sandra Johnson was inspired by L. Ron Hubbard's message for a drug-free life. The Say No to Drugs Holiday classic has grown to become a premiere race in Tampa Bay, drawing rave reviews from its runners.

Past participants of the Say No to Drugs Holiday Classic include six-time World Ironman Triathlon Champion Mark Allen, Canadian Olympian Peter Maher, American Olympian Ronnie Holassie, Swiss Olympian Dan Otz, and 5-time Ironman Champion Heather Gollnick.

All proceeds from the Say No to Drugs Holiday Classic benefit the local Boys Scouts and Girl Scouts, the Youth Triathlon Series, the Challenged Athletes Foundation, Foundation for a Drug-Free World and Youth for a Drug-Free Florida, as well as many other deserving organizations.

Sponsors include WQYK 99.5FM, Crystal Springs Water, Gatorade, PowerBar, FitNiche, USATF, Active.com, SweetWheat, Einstein Bros Bagels, Chainwheel Drive, Sweet Tomatoes, Outspokin Bike Shop, and Dr. Michael D’Alesio.

Ireland draws up budget cuts in excess of $20 billion
3 years 34 weeks ago

It seems the entire world is tightening its budgetary belt, but some countries are in worse shape than others. Consider Ireland, where Prime Minister Brian Cowen and Finance Minister Brain Lenihan are attempting to pick up the pieces after their nation's banks virtually guaranteed each single deposit no matter the size and loaned with reckless abandon. The Brians have drawn up austerity measures that may be what is needed to keep Ireland from drowning in a sea of debt. Within the next four years, Cowen and Lenihan would like to cut $20 billion to bring the Ireland debt crisis under control, writes the BBC. Source for this article - Ireland budget cuts climb to $20 billion by Money Blog Newz.

A huge bailout for Ireland may be the only way

Among the $20 billion Ireland spending budget cut measures planned are government spending cuts, tax increases, a reduction of Ireland's minimum wage, the introduction of a new property tax and thousands of public sector job cuts. Additionally, the Irish government is negotiating with the International Monetary Fund and the European Union to bring in an expected $113 billion in addition to the Cowen and Lenihan budged package.

Nearly 25,000 public sector jobs to be cut
