Atlantic City Press If some state legislators get their way, the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy could bring an end to one Jersey Shore tradition — the beach badge. State Sen. Michael Doherty, R-Hunterdon, Warren, and Senate President Stephen Sweeney, D-Salem, Gloucester, Cumberland, have introduced legislation requiring any town that accepts state or federal aid for rebuilding its beaches to provide beach and restroom access for free. “A beach fee is another word for tax,” Sweeney said Monday.

It remained the most destructive act of terrorism committed in the United States until the September 11 attacks of 2001. The bombing killed 168 people[1] and injured more than 680 others.[2] The blast destroyed or damaged 324 buildings within a 16-block radius, destroyed or burned 86 cars, and shattered glass in 258 nearby buildings,[3][4] causing at least an estimated $652 million worth of damage.[5] Extensive rescue efforts were undertaken by local, state, federal, and worldwide agencies in the wake of the bombing, and substantial donations were received from across the country.

Kelly Gallagher – Resources Part of the reason my students have such a hard time reading is because they bring little prior knowledge and background to the written page. They can decode the words, but the words remain meaningless without a foundation of knowledge. To help build my students’ prior knowledge, I assign them an "Article of the Week" every Monday morning. By the end of the school year I want them to have read 35 to 40 articles about what is going on in the world.

State of America's Libraries Report 2014 Skip to main content ALA User Menu Search form ala homepage quick links The Scariest and Deadliest Moments in Space History The Soviet leadership's attitude toward the pioneering cosmonauts and engineers as well as the facilities and the equipment was that everything was expendable in the all out effort to stay ahead of the Americans. As an example, revealed state archives indicate that in October 1960, a huge new booster rocket malfunctioned on the launch pad. Instead of taking safety precautions, the Kremlin ordered the launch director and engineers to fix the problem immediately and get the rocket launched that day. The launch director and over 165 men were inspecting the rocket when it suddenly blew up in a huge ball of fire instantly killing everyone nearby. Rumors persist that this was actually an early manned launch attempt with a cosmonaut on board. Amazingly, this historic tragedy was never officially confirmed by the Soviet government.

Article of the Week with Middle Schoolers « The Reading Zone Posted on January 25, 2010 by thereadingzone Last year, after reading Kelly Gallagher’s Readicide: How Schools Are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It, I was inspired to start using an Article of the Week with my 6th graders. Like Gallagher, I see a distinctive lack of background knowledge with my students which makes it hard for them to read at times. Gallagher uses his Article of the Week with high schoolers but I figured I could do the same with my 6th graders if I tweaked the assignment just a bit.

The media is criminal in their actions, they promote a agenda under the guise of freedom of speech. They are treasonous in their actions and coverage! by karldv8 Aug 31

Honestly, by my standard, in which i draw a mental bell curve of society and divide the population roughly in the middle. I would term Fox a "right wing" and Cnn "left wing" even though they both have elements transposed. This manages to get me through most conversations without looking too foolish. I personally feel that the "mainstream media" has lost it's function as an accurate news projector and is of little use other than to stampede the masses at every turn of fortune. It also serves both sides of the fence as a tool to rewrite history. When Marx said "religion is the opiate of the masses" he never envisioned TV and Cable by yokai Aug 30
