LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Focus on CongressFrom the office of Rep. Val DemingsOn Wednesday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller spoke for the first time about the contents and context of his report.Said Rep. Demings, “The president’s false claim that he has been exonerated is not true. In fact, Special Counsel Mueller, who rarely speaks in public, wrote letters and called today’s press conference to make absolutely sure that the American people fully understand that he did not clear the president of criminal activity.Rep. Val Demings“Mr. Mueller found that Russia attacked our election, and President Trump obstructed the investigation into that attack. The Mueller Report documented 11 instances of obstruction of justice, but Mr. Mueller was barred from criminally charging the president for his corruption and criminal cover-up. President Trump and his collaborators, five of whom have pleaded or been found guilty of federal crimes, sold out our country for their own gain.“This is a challenging time for our country, but also a great opportunity. Congress must secure our elections against future interference and hold President Trump accountable. Our families, freedoms, and futures depend on building a country where the rule of law matters. Our republic is a fragile thing, but worth protecting. We have a chance in the coming months to prove that in America, truth, justice, and accountability really do matter.”BackgroundRep. Demings has previously explained her position on opening impeachment hearings.Special Counsel Mueller, in his statement today, said, “if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so. We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.”Mr. Mueller went on to explain that “under longstanding department policy, a president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office,” and that “it would be unfair to potentially accuse somebody of a crime when there can be no court resolution.”As such, “charging the president with a crime [or accusing him of one] was therefore not an option we could consider.”However, Mr. Mueller explained that investigating the president was still important, and he laid out two reasons why.“…that evidence could be used if there were co-conspirators who could be charged now.” Indeed, five of the president’s close associates, including his Campaign Manager, Deputy Campaign Manager, National Security Advisor, and personal lawyer, have now been found guilty or pleaded guilty to federal crimes, and President Trump’s personal lawyer implicated the president in those crimes.“…the Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing.” In other words, any effort to hold a president accountable is the responsibility of Congress, and Congress needs evidence of wrongdoing in order to proceed.Selected Mueller Report ExcerptsVol 1, Pg. 1: “Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election.”Vol 1, Pg. 1: “the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, [and] the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts…”Vol 1, Pg. 5: “The presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump (“Trump Campaign” or “Campaign”) showed interest in WikiLeaks ‘s releases of documents and welcomed their potential to damage candidate Clinton.”Vol 1, Pg. 9: “the investigation established that several individuals affiliated with the Trump Campaign lied to the Office, and to Congress, about their interactions with Russian-affiliated individuals and related matters. Those lies materially impaired the investigation of Russian election interference.”Vol 1, Pg. 9: “some of the individuals we interviewed or whose conduct we investigated—including some associated with the Trump Campaign—deleted relevant communications or communicated during the relevant period using applications that feature encryption or that do not provide for long-term retention of data or communications records.”Vol 2, Pg. 1: a traditional prosecution or declination decision entails a binary determination to initiate or decline a prosecution, but we determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment…The Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) has issued an opinion finding that ‘the indictment or criminal prosecution of a sitting President’ [is impermissible].”Vol 2, Pg. 2: “we determined not to apply an approach that could potentially result in a judgement that the President committed crimes,” because it was unfair to “potentially [reach] that judgement when no charges can be brought.”Vol 2, Pg. 2: “if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgement.”Vol 2, Pg. 8: “Congress has authority to prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice…The conclusion that Congress may apply the obstruction laws to the President’s corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law.”Vol 2, Pg. 76: “the President had a motive to put the FBI’s Russia investigation behind him…the evidence does indicate that a thorough FBI investigation would uncover facts about the campaign and the President personally that the President could have understood to be crimes or that would give rise to personal and political concerns.”Vol 2, Pg. 78: “According to notes written by Hunt, when Sessions told the President that a Special Counsel had been appointed, the President slumped back in his chair and said, ‘Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m fucked.’ The President became angry and lambasted the Attorney General for his decision to recuse from the investigation, stating, ‘How could you let this happen, Jeff?’ The President said the position of Attorney General was his most important appointment and that Sessions had ‘let [him] down,’ contrasting him to Eric Holder and Robert Kennedy. Sessions recalled that the President said to him, ‘you were supposed to protect me,’ or words to that effect.”Vol 2, Pg. 154: “The evidence concerning this sequence of events could support an inference that the President used inducements in the form of positive messages in an effort to get Cohen not to cooperate, and then turned to attacks and intimidation to deter the provision of information or undermine Cohen’s credibility once Cohen began cooperating.”Vol 2, Pg. 157: “Our investigation found multiple acts by the President that were capable of exerting undue influence over law enforcement investigations, including the Russian-interference and obstruction investigations. The incidents were often carried out through one-on-one meetings in which the President sought to use his official power outside of usual channels.” Please enter your comment!last_img read more

10 Reasons to Get a Masters in Nursing

first_img TAGSNursing Master’s Degree Previous article7-Eleven Celebrates Grand Opening of New Apopka StoreNext articleDemings, Murphy, and Soto push back on Florida Legislature’s handling of the Affordable Housing Trust Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR If you are a nurse who is looking to broaden their horizons and climb the career ladder, obtaining a master’s in nursing may be the perfect path for you to go down. The main purpose of an MSN degree is to teach nurses advanced clinical skills and knowledge in a range of areas of nursing. While completing a BSN or AND degree may help when it comes to getting closer to your personal and professional goals, studying for an MSN degree instead can provide you with many perks you may not have ever considered. To help make your mind up, here are ten reasons why we think you should obtain a master’s in nursing.Increase in SalaryUnderstandably, one of the main reasons why nurses pursue an MSN degree is for the immediate increase in salary. Nurses who study for an AND degree tend to earn roughly $67,000 per year, while nurses who obtain a BSN degree take home $80,000 per annum. Those who go the extra mile and obtain an MSN degree can expect to earn up to $92,000 per year on average.Command More RespectNo matter the nursing career you want to obtain, it’s only natural that you will want to have support, guidance, and respect from your peers. If you decide to pursue an MSN degree, you will earn admiration from healthcare professionals and your colleagues, which can help you feel more confident in your abilities and help make people take you more seriously. After completing your masters in nursing, you may find that your peers respect your thoughts and opinions more, as well as come to you for support and guidance.Become an EducatorIf you have a passion for helping others and want to play a part in educating the nurses of the future, many individuals pursue an MSN degree to become a nurse educator. Nurse educators can work in a variety of settings, including:UniversitiesHospitalsVocational schoolsNursing schoolsTo succeed as a nurse educator, it’s important that you have the right skillset behind you to help you stand out from your peers. Some of the key traits required include:Excellent communication skillsListening skillsInterpersonal skillsTime management skillsMore Flexibility at WorkAs an MSN holder, you will tend to be ranked among the most experienced and qualified nurses in the workplace, meaning you can enjoy more flexibility at work than most LPNs or RNs. This means that you can request shifts that are more convenient to your needs, as well as take more time off than other nurses.Study OnlineAs a nurse, trying to balance your work life, social life, and family life can be a challenge. If you’re looking to go back into education, you may be wondering how you will fit your studies around your day to day life. Thankfully, there are various online schools who deliver RN to MSN nurse practitioner courses, providing you with the flexibility you need. Other benefits of online learning include:Study at your own paceLearn from the comfort of your own homeLower total costs and fees24/7 access to course materialsEnter Leadership RolesIf you are a nurse who likes to take charge and make a difference, obtaining an MSN degree could put you at the forefront of securing leadership and managerial positions within the nursing world. To stand out from the crowd, it’s crucial that you possess the key traits needed to succeed in leadership, such as:Ability to delegatePositive attitudePassion and commitment to the roleCreativityConfidenceSense of humorThroughout your MSN degree, you will be taught a range of management strategies and advanced clinical skills that can be highly useful when it comes to supervising employees. Many MSN degree holders go on to run departments and lead nursing teams.Affordable TuitionEven if you have your heart set on obtaining an MSN degree, having the finances to fund the course may be what’s stopping you from fulfilling your dream. While obtaining an MSN degree will be a large financial commitment, you may not be aware of the options you have available which can keep costs down. You may be able to transfer credits, or complete the course in a shorter period of time, as well as apply for grants and scholarships. Expand Your Professional NetworkThroughout an MSN degree, you will have the opportunity to engage with your peers, professors, and key figures in the nursing sector. The more connections you make throughout your studies, the better chance you have of securing a new job. During your learning, you may discover a field that sparks your interest, which can lead to you completing a doctoral program. Expand Your Knowledge BaseNo matter what career path you plan to go down after completing an MSN degree, it’s important that you develop key skills and traits that are needed in any aspect of nursing. Developing a deep knowledge of the field you’re interested in can help you feel more confident and prepared when it comes to applying for roles. Also, you will learn time management skills when completing coursework which can be adapted into the workplace.Increased ResponsibilityIt goes without saying, the more experience and credentials you have, the more responsibility and power you will have in the nursing sector. Many nurses like to have a high degree of responsibility after completing an MSN degree, with many highly skilled and experienced nursing having the opportunity to oversee the overall functioning of a facility or department. No matter the field you’d like to go down, being in charge can be challenging, so you will need to learn how to work well under pressure.If you’re interested in applying for leadership and management positions within the nursing sector, obtaining an MSN degree can help employers take you more seriously, as well as equip you with all the necessary traits and soft skills needed to succeed. Regardless of your career plans, make sure that you look into course specifications and entry requirements before signing up to ensure you’ve made the right decision. Please enter your comment!

AAA: Florida gas prices reach 19-month highs; Apopka lower than least…

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter It was the most expensive February in four yearsFrom AAAFebruary was the most expensive month at the pump since July 2019 (19 months). Throughout the month, gas prices increased an average total of 24 cents per gallon.Last month, Florida gas prices averaged $2.52 per gallon (February 2021). That’s 20 cents more than the monthly average in January. It was the most expensive February in three years: 14 cents more than February 2020 and 23 cents more than February 2019. However, the monthly average in February *2018* was 7 cents higher ($2.59 per gallon).Florida drivers are now paying an average price of $2.61 per gallon. That’s the highest daily average price since July 2019. The state average has held at that level for the past week. However, drivers are paying 22 cents per gallon more than a month ago, and 23 cents more than this time last year. The state average has increased a total of 41 cents since January 1.“Last month’s jump at the pump was largely driven by refinery issues – caused by arctic weather in Texas,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Other factors were tightening global fuel supplies and continued optimism that the Covid-19 vaccine and stimulus money would help boost fuel demand. Drivers should expect continued volatility at the pump in the coming months as refineries enter maintenance season and prepare to switch to summer gasoline.”Apopka Gas Prices 2.690Shell1500 N Wekiwa Springs RdApopkaMar 2, 3:41 PM PriceStationAddressCityTime AAA GAS PRICE AVERAGES(Price per gallon of regular unleaded gasoline) 2.590Marathon347 N Thompson RdApopkaMar 2, 7:34 AM Lowest Gas Prices in Apopka 2.540BP2685 E SEMORAN BLVDApopkaMar 2, 10:46 AM SundaySaturdayWeek AgoMonth AgoOne Year AgoRecord High 2.590Shell3498 E Semoran BlvdApopkaMar 2, 9:53 AM Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Ireland in pole position after O’Driscoll farewell thrashing of Italy

first_imgMonday Mar 10, 2014 Ireland in pole position after O’Driscoll farewell thrashing of Italy Ireland scored seven tries as Dublin bid farewell to Brian O’Driscoll in what was his final Test at home. His 140th cap now makes him the most capped Test player of all time, adding to the sense of occasion for Ireland fans as their team beat Italy 46-7.It was all about O’Driscoll, and he didn’t disappoint as the most capped individual played a big part in a number of Ireland tries. Some of his sublime handling contributed to first half tries for Andrew Trimble and Jonny Sexton, then he did it again in the second, resulting in another try for Sexton.He went off to a rousing standing ovation with twenty minutes to go, having helped to get his side into a position whereby a win over France in Paris will all but secure a Championship winning send off for the 35-year-old Ireland rugby legend.“I feel humbled by the reaction today. It seems a bit of of a joke that you get get man of the match for 60 minutes, but I’ve loved my time playing in this jersey. It had to come to an end at some stage and I’m glad I’m able to go out at home with a big win,” O’Driscoll said.Cian Healy, Sean Cronin, Fergus McFadden and Jack McGrath all crossed for tries too, despite Italy looking good at one stage, and having to make a record breaking 208 tackles on the day.Ireland, England and France are all level on points at the top of the Six Nations table, but Ireland’s superior points difference could prove the difference going into the final weekend.They face France in Paris, while England take on Italy in Rome.

He worked with the practice since its inception in 1990, doing all of out first projects until he moved on to greater things. This is the second house we have built for the family. Since the first one, he has travelled the world with his wife and daughter, working in Asia, Australia and the USA. He has collaborated with an impressive range of international architects. The family returned with a collection of travel souvenirs and they wanted a modern house around which to display their gatherings.

Buildings, glasshouses and sheds, devoted to particular purposes, are set out side by side in a laconic, almost offhand fashion.  Things are juxtaposed in an ordered way relating to the demands of particular processes. The brick house is a couple of feet away from the wooden shed, which butts up to the open steel hay barn alongside the concrete byre. Buildings are stacked loosely like books on a shelf. Save this picture!© Nick KaneThis site is a long narrow enclosure with an orchard at one end and an open paddock at the other. You enter it from the side at one fixed point dictated by the old entrance. We chose to position the house so that it divides the site between the paddock and a smaller enclosed garden. New planting will reinforce the separation. Buildings were organised in a row, each doing something different, each made from different materials, each a slightly different length. They are lined up in parallel rows with one hard margin and one stepped edge where different sized blocks are sorted by length. We like to imagine that they might have been bought from a catalogue and set out using the simplest rule possible. The blocks are; Silver Birch, a wooden cabinet, a vitrine, a steel canopy, a concrete water trough. It is our intention that they should stand separately but interrelate in use. Save this picture!The wooden cabinet is on the north side and you enter through it. It is intended that it should screen the open space of the paddock from the person arriving. You go through a modest doorway into the stair hall. The rooms in the wooden box all service the building. They are staircases, bathrooms, utility rooms and so on. As you move through, you come upon the open space of the larger box, the vitrine. Principal rooms open off a double height space, which forms the centre of the house. A substantial glazed screen faces the garden terrace. It frames wide views of the paddock to the south. So you discover the site by passing through the building. The glass wall is shaded by the next element, a steel shed-like canopy with a perforated roof. The canopy covers a terrace that is contained by a concrete pool. The pool reflects light into the house. Ponies and horses in the paddock will use it. They can drink from it and it forms a natural barrier to prevent them from walking into the house.Project gallerySee allShow less’Wolf D.

The Shift-top house, located is Denver’s trendy Lower Highlands neighborhood, is a renovation and addition to an existing 1940’s bungalow. The original structure, with solid concrete foundations and a brick exterior shell proved to be a good base for an addition, and an opportunity to save cost on excavation and recreation of these components. The design team’s solution was to remove the roof and add upwards, essentially popping the top on the original home.Save this picture!© Raul J. GarciaDenver’s zoning code posed a unique challenge to the addition.  Not only was the original structure out of conformance to the City’s standard for side yard setbacks, encroaching by over one foot, any new additions in height would be required to comply with the current bulk plane standards which call for structures over 17’ tall to pull away from the property line as their height increases.  In response, the new 2nd and 3rd floor volumes incrementally shift at each level relative to the base.  The resulting addition cantilevers by over 4’ from the original brick home.Save this picture!© Raul J. GarciaIn all, 3 bedrooms were added to the 2nd floor and a rooftop deck & office to the 3rd. At the first level, the rear wall of the home was removed and replaced with glass, opening the interior to the back yard.  The second floor addition overhangs a private patio in the back with a 2-sided fireplace to the interior.  A dramatic interior void connects all three floors with an open staircase.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessRooms / Ando CorporationSelected ProjectsLandfill Reclaimation: Fresh Kills Park Develops as a Natural Coastal Buffer and Par…Architecture News Share Save this picture!© Raul J.
