EHF CL: Vive Kielce is still the leader after win over St Petersburg

first_imgEHF CL SUNDAY: Eight matches, derby time in Kielce and Szeged ShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsIn the 8th round of the Champions League Vive Targi Kielce beat St. Petersburg 30:29. Regardless of all the problems Kielce has, before the match nobody really expected an equal game, let alone a defeat of the leader of Group C. First half seemed to confirm those expectations – after a bit diffident beginning Polish team found its rhythm and took the lead. Half time result was 20:14 and it appeared that all what Polish team could do in the second half was to gain more advantage. First ten minutes of the second half were fine, host team was leading by 9 goals but then Russian team scored 8 goals in a row. Kielce fans could not believe what they saw when six minutes before the final whistle there was a draw 27:27. Nonetheless, Vive players took the lead again and managed to win 2 valuable points. The top scorer for Kielce was Mateusz Jachlewski (6), a left winger who in this match played on the right wing due to Ólafsson‘s indisposition.TEXT: Martyna Usnarska GO EAST: Andreas Wolff to Kielce in 2019?

ASK A COP — How young is too young to ride on a motorcycle?

first_img Answer: The very reason why your wife turns on her hazard lamps is because she knows she’s doing something illegal. Keith, for some reason, people believe hazard lamps are the passageway to breaking the state of Texas laws, but hazard lamps don’t excuse willful transgressors of the law. If you make up your mind to park in a no parking zone, please understand you are violating state law, and your hazard lambs don’t magically give you clearance to break any of the state parking laws.Gail from Beaumont Asks: Either I’m confused about the texting while driving law or it seems hardly anyone on the road seems to be paying attention. I’m constantly observing drivers texting and driving, not obeying the texting and driving law. Everywhere I go, I see people still with their phones in their hands while on the roadways. I thought Texas was now a hands-free cell phone zone! Could you please tell me the fine for texting while driving? Could you explain the laws regarding texting while driving in Texas?Answer: It doesn’t really seem much has changed since the passing of the Texas Texting while Driving Law in 2017. Cellphones are still being used because the law says they can do everything else not relating to communicating via texting. This law has been presented in Texas four times before it finally passed in 2017. IN MY OPINION, this law is simply a band-aid on a serious gunshot wound. It doesn’t have much for law enforcement officers to work with. It only addresses reading, writing or sending electronic messages, but any other functions on cellphones are permitted. This is why we need this law stricter because. In 2014, 3,179 people in the U.S. were killed in crashes involving distracted drivers and an additional 431,000 were injured. In 2016, there were 109,658 traffic crashes in Texas alone that involved distracted driving, leading to over 3,000 serious injuries and at least 455 fatalities. The sobering truth is texting while driving makes a car accident 23-34 times more likely to occur. Here are the cellphone laws in Texas: (1) Drivers cannot send or receive electronic messages in Texas. (2) Drivers with learner’s permits are prohibited from using handheld cell phones in the first six months of driving. (3) Drivers under the age of 18 are prohibited from using wireless communications devices. (4) School bus operators are prohibited from using cell phones while driving if children are present. (5) In school zones, all drivers are prohibited from texting and using handheld devices while driving. Also, many municipalities have enacted their ordinance to combat the dangerous act of texting while driving. The fine for texting while driving is $25 up to $99.

Kate from Nederland Asks: I have a nephew that has a 4-year-old son whom he absolutely treasures. My nephew has a motorcycle and allows his son to ride on the roadway with him. He assures his son has a helmet on for his safety. I really don’t see this as being a safe mode to travel but I don’t know if there’s a law against such behavior. Is there a law in Texas that addresses the beginning age of a rider of a motorcycle?Answer: There is absolutely a law in the state of Texas that prohibits riders under the age of 5 from riding as a passenger of a motorcycle on the roadway. I applaud your nephew for at least putting a helmet on his son, but even with the helmet he’s in violation of the Texas Transportation Code. Texas is one of few states that mandated a minimum age while being a rider of a motorcycle. Now, if there’s a side car, there’s no age restriction, but if the child is being transported on the seat behind the driver, he/she must be 5 years of age or greater. Also no one under 21 can be a passenger or driver  of a motorcycle without a helmet in the state of Texas.Keith from Port Arthur Asks: Every time I go with my wife to pick up our daughter from daycare, she always parks in the no parking zone, but she leaves the flashers on because she plans to run in and out. She says she does it because she’ll be right back. I told her this is still illegal, but she doesn’t believe so.last_img read more

Sanders to chair Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee

first_imgSenator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has been named chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV.) made the announcement while listing committee assignments for the next session of Congress. As the White House and lawmakers are in the final stages of negotiating a year-end debt reduction deal, Sanders said his first order of business is to stop a proposal that would slash benefits for disabled veterans. It is morally and economically unacceptable that anyone in Congress would propose balancing our budget by making significant cuts for disabled veterans, Sanders said. A proposed switch to a so-called chained CPI, a new way to measure consumer prices and calculate cost-of-living adjustments, would drastically reduce benefits for veterans and their families. The largest cuts would impact young, permanently disabled veterans who were seriously wounded in combat. According to the Social Security Administration, permanently disabled veterans who started receiving VA disability benefits at age 30 would see their benefits cut by more than $1,300 a year at age 45; $1,800 a year at age 55; and $2,260 a year at age 65. Sanders has served on the Veterans Affairs Committee for six years. He replaces Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), who was appointed the new chair of the Senate Budget Committee. I have enormous respect for Sen. Murray and for all of her hard work on behalf of veterans, Sanders said. It is a great honor to be named chairman of the committee, but it is an even greater responsibility, Sanders added. We owe it to the over 22 million brave veterans living in the United States today to provide the benefits that they have earned and deserve. The very first bill Sanders introduced when he came to Congress in 1991 called for reimbursing members of the National Guard and Reserve for income lost while deployed during the Persian Gulf War. Since then he has been tireless in his fight for veterans, eventually helping secure $23 million to expand research to find treatments for the 175,000 veterans still suffering from health problems related to that war. Earlier this year, Sanders won a Congressional Leadership Award from the Disabled American Veterans. He has helped pass legislation to provide over $57 million to help severely disabled veterans adapt their homes to better accommodate their disabilities and supported legislation to assist the caregivers of severely wounded warriors. A co-sponsor of the new GI Bill of Rights, Sanders has been a leader in helping veterans transition from duty in warzones to life at home. Working with the Vermont National Guard, Sanders helped secure major funding to build and develop a cutting-edge outreach and reintegration program in Vermont to provide proactive assistance to veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and their families. The senator also has advocated for veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injuries and other often undiagnosed health issues, helping to secure funding for a new building and budget for the VAs flagship research center, the National Center for PTSD in White River Junction, Vt. Another key initiative by Sanders for veterans has been opening and expanding VA Community-Based Outreach Clinics. There are now five clinics in Vermont which operate as satellites of VA medical center in White River Junction, Vt., helping veterans cut down on their travel time to receive care. In addition, Sanders coordinated funding and support for a Womens Comprehensive Care Center in Vermont to provide medical services specifically for women veterans. He also successfully fought to raise travel reimbursement rates for veterans who commute long distances to receive medical care, mitigating travel expenses as an obstacle to treatment. To fight veteran homelessness, Sanders supported opening several housing facilities for homeless veterans in his home state and secured funding for transitional housing for Vermonts women veterans. Since Sanders arrival in the Senate, VA funding has repeatedly met the level requested in what is known as the Independent Budget, an annual report from a respected group of veterans service organizations. In addition to the Veterans Affairs Committee, Sanders sits on four other standing committees: Budget; Environment and Public Works; Energy and Natural Resources; and Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions. Source: Sanders Office. 1212.12last_img read more

Champlain Housing Trust buys motel for COVID isolation and quarantine

first_imgHo Hum Motel on Williston Road in South Burlington. Google Maps image.Vermont Business Magazine The Champlain Housing Trust announced today that it purchased the Ho Hum Motel on Williston Road in South Burlington to serve as an isolation and quarantine motel to help address and prevent the spread of Covid-19 in Vermont. The purchase and some minor renovations was made possible by a grant from the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board using federal CARES Act funding appropriated by the State Legislature.“As we see what appears to be a second wave of the coronavirus, it is critical that anyone who has symptoms, or who has traveled out of state, or tested positive have a safe place to live either under quarantine or isolated from friends and family,” explained Michael Monte, chief operating officer of the Champlain Housing Trust. “If you are experiencing homelessness, or live in a congregate setting, isolating or quarantining is simply impossible without a property like this one – especially as we get into the colder months.”The housing trust began leasing the property at the beginning of October pending the purchase for $1.5 million this week. Prior to October, the organization’s motel Harbor Place in Shelburne had served the same purpose on an interim basis between March and September, serving roughly 100 individuals over that period.When renovations are complete, the new facility will have the capacity to provide up to 34 rooms at a time. It’s now serving up to 16. The operating cost and meals for guests are covered by the State’s Agency of Human Services. The housing trust has staffing around the clock and every day of the week.This is the third property acquired by the Champlain Housing Trust in response to the pandemic in the past six weeks. In Colchester, a new, expanded shelter for Steps to End Domestic Violence will have the capacity to serve 21 families and individuals, and the Baymont Inns & Suites in Essex Junction is being converted to 68 permanent apartments for people moving out of homelessness. People just started moving their apartments at this property, renamed Susan’s Place after a long time staffer Susan Ainsworth-Daniels who passed away earlier this year.Source: South Burlington, Vermont – Champlain Housing Trust 11.12.2020 http://www.getahome.org/(link is external)last_img read more
