The route would start at the Mission/Meridian Gold Line station; head east along Mission Street to Garfield Avenue; head south along Garfield Avenue to Huntington Drive; and then east along Huntington Drive.A second, starting at Garfield Park; then heading west along Mission Street to Diamond Avenue; heading south along Diamond Avenue to El Centro Street; heading west along El Centro Street to Meridian Avenue; heading north along Meridian Avenue to the Mission/Meridian Gold Line station; and then taking the Gold Line to the next stop.South Pasadena planners reportedly estimate city costs at $66,500, for police, public works and staff time.The current Metro Open Streets Grant includes a 20% local match. If the funds are distributed equally among the eight cities, each city would receive $49,200 and be required to contribute $9,840 for the local match (providing a total of $59,040 per city). These funds would be used to offset the cost to the City. However, additional funding will be required to fund the event. BikeSGV is currently exploring co-sponsorship and partnership opportunities.

Teaching the teachers

first_imgBy Cat HolmesUniversity of GeorgiaWhen it comes to science education, U.S. students don’t reflect the superpower status of their homeland. But a new program at the University of Georgia addresses some of science education’s biggest challenges.Compared with their peers in 38 other countries, U.S. students rank in the ho-hum middle, between Bulgaria and New Zealand in the Third International Mathematics and Science Study.To improve that, “The Science Behind Our Food,” funded by a $1.5 million National Science Foundation grant, pairs 10 UGA graduate teaching fellows with 10 Georgia high school teachers.Together, they will create a high school science curriculum centering on something everybody can relate to: food.Last week, UGA’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences announced the 10 NSF graduate teaching fellows, with fields ranging from stem cell research to aquatic toxicology to environmental engineering.”A major goal of this grant is to train scientific professionals as communicators,” said David Knauft, associate CAES dean and a key developer of the program.”Pairing each graduate fellow with a high school teacher,” he said, “ensures that the fellow will learn how to communicate ideas and set up experiments that are accessible to both teachers and their students.”It’s a worthy goal, said Rodney Nash, a Ph.D. student in animal and dairy sciences and a newly appointed graduate fellow in the program.”For a lot of people, science is as incomprehensible as Frankenstein’s lab,” Nash said. “And a lot of scientists don’t help the situation. They make it more complicated than it has to be.”Nash’s doctoral work at UGA focuses on embryonic stem cell research in humans and mice.”There’s still a great deal about stem cells that we don’t know,” he said. “How do we make them turn into what we want them to turn into? That’s the mystery right now.”In his graduate studies, Nash works “with some of the most distinguished scientists in the world … Steve Stice, Steve Dalton, Cliff Baile,” he said. “This program will make their work accessible to high school students. We’re planning to videotape some of the experiments.”Through the program, high school students will be exposed to the latest technology through the graduate fellows and the professors who guide the fellows’ studies.”Many of these scientists are working on research that has direct applications on the food we eat,” Knauft said. “They’re sequencing the genomes of Georgia’s major crops, cloning livestock, developing new breeds of pecans or techniques for detecting genetically modified organisms in food. It’s cutting-edge science.”The program starts July 9, when all 10 teaching fellows and 10 high school teachers begin a two-week crash course on some of the most current research UGA has to offer, touring facilities in Athens, Griffin and Tifton.Nash will present his research on stem cells during this time.”There is so much controversy with stem cells and cloning,” he said. “I would like to clarify some ideas and talk about the ethical and moral principles involved. Some people think we get these cells from aborted fetuses, which is totally not true.”As for learning how to communicate complex scientific principles to regular folks, Nash says he has a great teacher.”I explain everything I’m working on to my grandmother, who is 74,” he said. “I know if I can break it down so she can understand it, I’m doing a good job.”The other graduate fellows are Vedas Burkeen, food science and technology; Anna Cathey, environmental engineering; Emily Duff, animal and dairy science and nutrition; Eva Daneke, environmental health science; Juanita Forrester, entomology; Jackie Hoffman, poultry science; Jeremy Peacock, aquatic toxicology; Amy Rowley, food science and technology; and Christopher Wildman, ruminant nutrition.(Cat Holmes is a science writer with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more

Colombian Police Will Pay for Videos and Photos Depicting Criminal Activity

first_img Depending on how useful the videos prove in the investigation, the authors might be rewarded with bonuses specified in the compensation plan of the National Police. I request that you investigate a house on Calle 11 Sur N 20-37 from Santa Ysabel de Neiva. The neighbors are concerned due to the high consumption of hallucinogens by its residents and others that come in from the street to consume. And the worst thing is that there are several underage kids. I’d appreciate you taking action in this matter, since this has always been an area of good morals. By Dialogo May 17, 2013 This initiative will contribute significantly to the development of legal investigations. In fact, it is expected to increase the number of captures attained so far. The email address for this purpose is [email protected], and it will be monitored 24/7. center_img The videos received will be presented formally to authorities, for the purpose of prosecuting those involved in the crimes. In terms of microtrafficking, 30,781 people who were involved in various stages of the criminal chain for trafficking hallucinogens in small quantities were captured in 2013,. The Colombian National Police Office for Citizen Security has created an email address to send videos and photographs showing criminal activity, such as the sale of drugs and theft against people, households, and commercial premises. last_img read more

Bucksport softball team starts season on high note with win over MDI

first_imgBUCKSPORT — No matter who comes and goes, the Bucksport softball team expects to win. Even with a young squad this season, that expectation has gone unchanged.Last year marked the end for Bucksport’s decorated 2018 class, which appeared in four consecutive Northern Maine championship games and brought home two Class C titles. Each of the seven seniors in that class was a major contributor to the Golden Bucks’ sustained success as one of the state’s top softball programs.In 2019, the Golden Bucks are going from experienced to youthful with four freshmen starting and a total of nine lowerclassmen on their 13-player roster. Yet even though it doesn’t match up with past Bucksport units in terms of experience, this year’s team showed in its season opener that those championship aspirations haven’t changed.Bucksport opened the season Thursday with an 8-1 over Mount Desert Island at Bucksport High School. Seniors Mikayla Tripp (18 strikeouts in the circle and a home run at the plate) and Brittney Dewitt (two hits, three RBIs and a strong defensive showing) led the way in an all-around solid victory for the Golden Bucks, who also got contributions from their younger players along the way. Bucksport’s Brittney Dewitt makes a diving catch during the fourth inning of a high school softball game against MDI on April 18 at Bucksport High School. Dewitt had a strong day of her own for the Golden Bucks with two hits and three RBIs in addition to her inning-ending grab.

The solo shot sparked a late rally for Bucksport, which piled on two more runs in the fifth and three in sixth to break open what was previously a one-run game.

The win gave Bucksport its biggest victory over a Class B opponent since it beat the Trojans 10-3 on May 24, 2016. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELL123PreviousNextThis is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“We lost a lot from last year, but I think we still have a good mix this year,” Tripp said. “As seniors, [Brittney and I] are really motivated to come out and make one last run, and we have some young players who are really talented and ready to come out here and win.”After Tripp struck out two batters in the top of the first, Bucksport took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the inning on an RBI single from Dewitt. Tripp then struck out the side in the top of the second, and the Golden Bucks doubled their lead when Victoria Watkins’ slap single scored Zoe Hosford from third base.MDI (0-1) threatened in the top of the third inning when it put runners on second and third with two outs, but Tripp completed another three-strikeout inning to get herself out of the jam. After she struck out the first two batters to begin the fourth, Dewitt made a diving catch on the edge of the infield grass to complete a 1-2-3 inning.“I’ve made a couple of those,” Dewitt said. “It was a tough play, but I knew I had enough time to get over there. My outfield was right there to back me up.”The Trojans finally got on the scoreboard in the top of the fifth when Hannah Chamberlain scored on a passed ball, but Bucksport (1-0) followed with a rally that produced six runs in two innings. That surge began when Tripp restored the Golden Bucks’ two-run advantage with a solo home run.“I knew it [was a home run] as soon I saw it hit,” Bucksport head coach Mike Carrier said of Tripp’s fifth-inning blast over the center-field fence. “We made a few adjustments because she’s been popping up a bit, and that seemed to work quite well.” Mount Desert Island freshman Bailey Goodell lays down a bunt during the third inning of a high school softball game against Bucksport on April 18 at Bucksport High School. MDI started the season 0-1 with the loss.

At the plate, she gave the Trojans their lone hit when she singled to left in the third inning.The win over an MDI team that is returning all but one player from last year’s Northern Maine playoff squad gave Bucksport its biggest victory over a Class B opponent since it beat the Trojans 10-3 in 2016. More importantly, the Golden Bucks have proved they can still compete with top opponents despite a young roster that has undergone such massive turnover from last season.“That’s one of the best teams we’ll play all season,” Carrier said. “They’re a very good Class B team, and I told the kids they ought to be proud of this. We played really well.”Bucksport is scheduled to host Dexter (0-0) at 4:30 p.m. Monday, April 22. The location of that game was moved from Dexter to Bucksport on Thursday after fields at Dexter Regional High School were deemed unlikely to be ready for play by Monday afternoon. The teams will met in Dexter on May 23.MDI will host Hermon at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 23. Hermon opened the season Thursday with an 11-5 home win over Central.
