The Yes vote in the Republic won handily, garnering 62 per cent of the support.This is a socially significant step for Ireland; the Catholic church has held great sway there, and its line of the referendum was, predictably, that its congregations vote No. The 3m strong electorate turned out at strength: turnout was around 65 per cent, with 1.2m voting Yes and 734,000 voting no.Ireland has draconian laws on civil liberties, with its abortion restrictions some of the most stringent in the developed world.Enda Kenny, Taoiseach of Ireland, said:In the privacy of the ballot box, the people made a public statement. With today’s vote we have disclosed who we are. We are a generous, compassionate, bold and joyful people who say yes to inclusion, yes to generosity, yes to love, yes to gay marriage.

In fact, the event takes on the feel of a rally or revival meeting complete with video of hard-working Americans with their equally hardworking and loyal Chevy trucks. “How many of you have a name for their truck?” cries Batey as several hundred hands reached for the sky. “Now, how many of you have named your iPhones?”Over the last hundred years, Chevrolet has built more than 85 million pickup trucks, and the new Silverado has reportedly been shaped by feedback from more than 7,000 owners. It’s certainly a departure from the squared-off, blocky shape we’ve grown accustomed to. A sleek and swoopy form that’s obviously derived from the mid-size Colorado, the Silverado is all-new from the ground up. “It’s strong,” says Batey. “It’s modern. But it’s instantly recognizable as a Chevy truck.”The familiar grille is retained, but it’s now flanked by narrower projector headlamps with LED strips. Dressing up the side profile is a sharp character line that flows downward from the curvier wheel arches to the front door. As before, the rear bumper features a handy inset step for easier access to the box.

It’s a completely unexpected appearance, since the truck is scheduled to make its world debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month.

But truck manufacturers are currently embroiled in an all-out numbers war, and with Chrysler soon to introduce an all-new Ram, and the newest iteration of the segment-leading Ford F-150 also getting ready to drop, it probably doesn’t hurt to make a half-time-show style entrance in Texas, Silverado’s strongest market. It’s the most important vehicle in General Motor’s portfolio, so much so that the company is investing US$3 billion into both Silverado and Sierra manufacturing facilities. Trending Videos The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever While torque and tow numbers are the primary way to keep score during this back and forth battle, truck manufacturers are also under increasing pressure to increase efficiency and lower fuel consumption. According to Batey, the new Silverado features a higher grade of steel alloy in the “roll-formed” bed floor, which gives it more strength with less weight. The manufacturer is rather stingy with the details, claiming only that the new truck made use of “advanced manufacturing” and “mixed materials” for a significant reduction in total weight and improved performance and efficiency. Nowhere is there any mention of aluminum – not surprising, given Chevrolet’s very public criticism of Ford’s new bodies and beds. But in order to compete in the never-ending quest for lightness, Chevrolet has almost certainly used at least some aluminum, if not in the bed, then probably in some of the body panels or suspension components.One of eight trims available when the Silverado launches, the Trailboss builds on the off-road Z71 and adds a two-inch factory lift kit. As for powertrains, Chev claims there will be an “expanded range offered” which will probably include the current 6.2-litre V8 and new 10-speed automatic transmission now available in the Tahoe and Suburban.

David Korevaar, the Helen and Peter Weil Professor of Piano, College of Music, will deliver a unique Distinguished Research Lecture on Feb. 24 from 4 to 5:45 p.m. at Grusin Music Hall with a reception to follow. His presentation will feature a combination performance and talk entitled “The score is alive…with the sound of music.”If you goWho: University affiliatesWhat: “The score is alive . . . with the sound of music”When: Friday, Feb. 24, 4 to 5:45 p.m.Where: Imig Music, Grusin Music HallCost: FreeRegistration is requested for this event. Reception to follow.Register nowKorevaar, one of two recipients of CU Boulder’s 2016 Distinguished Research Lectureship, presents a lecture performance that focuses on the process of translating notes on the page into music that comes alive for the listener. Beginning with Chopin’s familiar “Ballade No. 3” as an example of how a performance grows from the contexts that surround it, the lecture will move on to Korevaar’s discovery of the Italian composer Luigi Perrachio’s (1883–1966) music for the piano and how he approaches translating into sound music which, though 100 years old, has no performing tradition attached to it. Bringing the discussion to living composers, Korevaar will showcase his work on some recent pieces by his longtime friend, American composer Lowell Liebermann.Korevaar began his piano studies at age 6 in San Diego with Sherman Storr (a College of Music alumnus), and at age 13 he became a student of the great American virtuoso Earl Wild. By age 20 he had earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Juilliard School, where he continued his studies with Wild and studied composition with David Diamond. He completed his Doctor of Musical Arts from the Juilliard School with Abbey Simon. Another important mentor and teacher was French pianist Paul Doguereau, who had been a student of Egon Petri, and who had studied the music of Fauré and Debussy with Roger-Ducasse (a pupil of Fauré’s), and the music of Ravel with the composer.Korevaar has recorded prolifically, most recently releasing a critically acclaimed CD of works by Chopin, and has collaborated with College of Music colleague Chas Wetherbee on a CD of music by Tibor Harsányi—a recording that was inspired by earlier research in the College of Music’s Howard Waltz Library. He has recorded Bach’s music extensively, including the Six Partitas, both books of the Well-Tempered Clavier and the Goldberg Variations.His scholarly work has included collaborations with College of Music theory professor Daphne Leong on the interactions between performance and analysis, as well as a collaboration with College of Music professor Laurie Sampsel on the contents and provenance of the library’s Ricardo Viñes Piano Music Collection—the source of today’s Perrachio rarities.

Complete and accurate census data help make this possible.Together with data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, census data also allow scientists and health care experts to model the potential impact of an emerging health threat. This powerful tool enables them to anticipate needs and advise the nation’s policymakers on the expected demand for resources.All of this information—made possible when we complete the census—is critical to helping the nation get ahead of our biggest challenges. For Colorado, an accurate census count could also mean an additional representative in the U.S. House of Representatives.Now more than ever, your response to the 2020 census matters. Respond today, and make sure your family, friends and neighbors respond too.You can respond by visiting the census website, or by calling 844-330-2020. It’s easy and typically takes about 10 minutes.StudentsEven if you have returned home from your Boulder residence, your parent(s) or guardian(s) should not count you in their response. If they have, and you normally live off-campus in Boulder, you should still respond.On-campus residentsStudents who normally lived in residence halls or campus housing during the academic year do not need to complete the census survey. CU Boulder Community Living staff is working with the Census Bureau to count you.Off-campus residentsStudents who normally live in a non-CU owned apartment or house, alone or with roommates, should preferably complete the census survey as a household, and can do so now in one of three ways: online (preferred), by phone or by mail.Whatever method you choose, be sure to use your normal address—where you usually live while you are enrolled as a student at CU Boulder.Your survey response should include everyone else who normally lives in your household. If you are not sure about your roommate’s information or can’t verify whether your roommate has already responded, please respond for the entire household to the best of your ability. The Census Bureau has tools to avoid duplicate responses and would rather receive duplicates than miss you or your roommate entirely.If you are not in Boulder now to retrieve your mail, you can still respond to an online survey via the census website, or by calling, toll-free, 844-330-2020. It’s easy and typically takes about 10 minutes.Other important informationInternational and undocumented students should be counted at their on- or off-campus residences as described above. Federal law protects the privacy of census responses, and they can only be used to produce statistics.All students should inform their parent(s) or guardian(s) not to count them in their survey unless they live with their parent(s) or guardian(s) for most of the year.Faculty and staff are also encouraged to complete the survey.Learn more about Census 2020 at CU Boulder and why it is important to make sure your voice is heard.Categories:Getting InvolvedCampus Community

Lisa Hanna, says a Green Paper on the revised National Youth Policy could be tabled in Parliament by September.Miss Hanna, who made the disclosure while contributing to the 2013/14 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on June 18, said the Concept Paper and Cabinet Submission are to go to the Human Resource Committee of Cabinet before the end of this month.She noted that the policy development process is expected to be completed by August this year.The Minister informed that the review of the policy is in response to the changes within the policy environment and the need to take into account the emerging issues that affect youth development nationally.The National Youth Policy places focus on entrepreneurship, skills training and preparing young people for the world of work in the global village. It is also expected to provide insight into developmental models and programmes for young people.Revision of the policy is being informed by the findings of the 2010 Jamaica National Youth Survey, which was commissioned by the Government under the Youth Development Programme loan agreement signed with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).Conducted by the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN), the survey provides a holistic profile of young people age 15 to 24 years, and seeks to aid in the strengthening of existing programmes designed for youth development throughout the island.It focuses on, among other things, unattached youth; young people living and working on the street as well as those in state care; young people with disabilities; entrepreneurial and employment opportunities; and spirituality and values.Contact: Athaliah Reynolds-Baker RelatedJCDC to Unveil Slate of Activities for 50th Anniversary

A trade group that represents nursing homes and other long-term care facilities is asking Gov. Ron DeSantis for broad liability protections during the COVID-19 pandemic, but a Jacksonville attorney says it’s unnecessary.In an April 3 letter, Florida Health Care Association President Emmett Reed asked for immunity from criminal and civil liability for any harm or damages alleged to have been sustained “as a result of an act or omission in the course of arranging for or providing health-care services,” during the COVID-19 public health emergency.The immunity protection should not extend to criminal misconduct or acts that would qualify as willful, intentional, or gross negligence, Reed said. But he said anything that happens as a result of a staffing or resource shortage should not be considered negligence or misconduct.In the letter, Reed also asked that health care professionals and health-care facilities responding to the outbreak be granted sovereign immunity limits.Florida Agency for Health Care Administration Sec. Mary Mayhew promised the group she would study the request. The group was still awaiting a response on April 15.Reed made the request as various facilities across the state were becoming coronavirus hot spots. Earlier this month, DeSantis ordered state health department strike teams to 93 facilities and the Florida National Guard to work with them to expand the effort.On April 15, Florida Department of Health numbers showed more than 1,100 residents or staff have been documented to be infected statewide. AP reports say more than 3,600 seniors have died in nursing homes across the country during the outbreak.FHCA spokeswoman Kristen Knapp, in an April 15 email, said FHCA was asking for the protections for all health-care providers and professionals, not just the nursing homes and long-term care providers it represents.Not only did FHCA members rush to implement containment measures ahead of social distancing mandates, staff members are risking their lives daily to care for the state’s most vulnerable residents, Knapp said.Meanwhile, the facilities are “desperately” trying to obtain more testing and personal protective equipment, she said.“In the midst of this unprecedented crisis, long-term caregivers should be able to direct their skills and attention to helping individuals who need them and not have to worry about being sued for making tough decisions while trying to comply with government directives,” she said.But Steve Watrel, a Jacksonville trial attorney who heads the nursing home litigation division of CokerLaw, calls the immunity request unnecessary.Watrel points out that the federal Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness, or PREP Act, which was activated in February by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, grants individuals and entities immunity from “claims of loss caused by, arising out of, relating to, or resulting from the manufacture, distribution, administration, or use of medical countermeasures,” related to the COVID-19 epidemic.And the federal Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security, or CARES Act, a $2 trillion stimulus package that President Donald Trump signed March 27, also provides liability protections, Watrel said. The federal statutes supersede state law, he said.Watrel agrees that nursing home workers deserve praise for their response during the emergency.“They’re doing a hard job here,” Watrel said. “Gov. DeSantis has done a wonderful job limiting access to the facilities, protecting the residents and not responding to dog whistle for tort reform.”While many nursing home facilities and long-term care providers do an excellent job, granting sweeping immunity would encourage bad actors to lower their standards at a time when containment measures prevent families from providing oversight, Watrel said.Watrel worries that nursing homes would use pandemic liability protection to avoid responsibility for neglecting routine care, which can lead to patients developing pressure sores and dying from sepsis, or dehydration and malnutrition.“This whole idea of just prospective immunity, without even thinking it through, I just think is problematic because where do you draw the line?” he said.

HomeFeaturedLock your cars! Vehicle theft spikes during COVID-19 pandemic May. 25, 2020 at 4:32 pmFeaturedNewsLock your cars! Vehicle theft spikes during COVID-19 pandemicAssociated Press1 year agocoronaviruscovidcrimepolice STEFANIE DAZIO, Associated PressThe coronavirus hasn’t been kind to car owners.With more people than ever staying home to lessen the spread of COVID-19, their sedans, pickup trucks and SUVs are parked unattended on the streets, making them easy targets for opportunistic thieves.Despite silent streets and nearly nonexistent traffic, vehicle larcenies shot up 63% in New York and nearly 17% in Los Angeles from Jan. 1 through mid-May, compared with the same period last year.And many other law enforcement agencies around the U.S. are reporting an increase in stolen cars and vehicle burglaries, even as violent crime has dropped dramatically nationwide in the coronavirus pandemic. It’s a low-risk crime with a potentially high reward, police say, especially when many drivers leave their doors unlocked or their keys inside.“You might as well put a sticker on the window that says ‘come take my stuff,’” said an exasperated Alex Villanueva, the Los Angeles County sheriff.In Austin, Texas, last month, a whopping 72% of the 322 stolen vehicles had their keys nearby. The total number of auto thefts in April spiked about 50%, and burglaries to vehicles were up 2% from April 2019.The virus has created a “perfect storm,” said Austin police Sgt. Chris Vetrano, a supervisor in the 11-detective auto theft unit that investigates stolen vehicle cases.The elements for that storm: Drivers are at home and not using or checking their cars regularly. School’s out, so teenagers are trying their luck. Criminals are out of work and have more time on their hands or need fast money to support a drug habit.“You can get on the internet nowadays and learn how to break into vehicles just searching YouTube,” Vetrano said.(He should know: Someone broke into his locked Ford F-150 pickup truck, one of the most commonly stolen vehicles, about a year ago.)Salt Lake City police Detective Greg Wilking said a 22% spike in vehicle burglaries there could be from a few criminals working quickly on “car prowls.”“It’s really 10 seconds,” he said. “They’re not spending a lot of time in your car. It’s a smash-and-grab-and-go,” sometimes in broad daylight.Wilking worries the numbers will keep rising because “people get more desperate as time goes on.”In Baltimore, though, a push to reduce the city’s historically high numbers of vehicle thefts and burglaries appears to have paid off. Thefts from autos plunged 24% and stolen vehicles dropped 19% from January to May compared with the same period last year.Col. Richard Worley, the chief of patrol, in part credits aggressive efforts to remind residents to lock their cars, take their keys home and park in well-lit areas. In this case, however, the pandemic has actually helped police: Residents are home, driving less and keeping an eye on the neighborhood, and officers now have time for proactive patrols because calls for service and violent crime have decreased. A thief was recently arrested with 13 stolen catalytic converters during a motor vehicle stop.Sometimes, however, it’s just a matter of luck. Like for Lindsey Eldridge, the police department’s community outreach coordinator, who left her keys in her car’s cupholder. She realized her mistake just before falling asleep.As Worley said: “She could have been a statistic.”Tags :coronaviruscovidcrimepoliceshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentCalifornia issues guidelines for church reopeningsSanta Monica College to Distribute $6.1 Million in Direct Aid to StudentsYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall6 hours agoBriefsLos Angeles Sheriff’s deputy accused of destroying evidence of 2019 assaultAssociated Press10 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter17 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor17 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press17 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press17 hours ago
