Advertising at its most important (all credit to Distractify!) Dr. Seuss was not fucking around Germany Has Built Clean Energy Economy U.S. Rejected in 80s InsideClimateNews (Berlin) -- The view from the Reichstag roof on a sun-drenched spring afternoon is spectacular. Looking out over Berlin from the seat of the German government, you can see the full sweep of the nation's history: from Humboldt University, where Albert Einstein taught physics for two decades, to the site of the former Gestapo headquarters. I'm not here to see this country's freighted past, however. The first installment of Clean Break: The Story of Germany's Energy Transformation -- and What Americans Can Learn From It, an Amazon ebook Such a massive power shift may sound impossible to those of us from the United States, where giant oil and coal corporations control the energy industry and the very idea of human-caused climate change is still hotly contested. "The fight now, to the extent that there is one, is over the speed of the transition," Jens Kendzia told me as we stood on the Reichstag roof. In an interview later that day, Dr. The U.S. wasn't always so timid.

Commission on Presidential Debates History[edit] The CPD has moderated the 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012 debates. Prior to this, the League of Women Voters moderated the 1976, 1980, 1984 debates before it withdrew from the position as debate moderator with this statement after the 1988 Presidential debates: "the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter." The Commission was then taken over by the Democratic and Republican parties forming today's version of the CPD. Washington University in St. Criticism[edit] In 1988, the League of Women Voters withdrew its sponsorship of the presidential debates after the George H.W.

Local school districts allocate millions in federal money differently - Del Mar Times | Del Mar Times By Marsha SuttonSenior Education Writer At the first meeting, last December, of the Del Mar Union School District’s newly elected board of trustees, the school board unanimously approved the payment of about $440,000 to district employees from the $763,852 given to the district under the Federal Education Jobs Fund. The $440,000 was the total cost after $1,000 was given to each full-time employee in the district, including superintendent Jim Peabody, the three assistant superintendents and the district’s eight principals. The $1,000 allotment — described in the Dec. 15, 2010 school board packet as a “one-time employee cash incentive” — was pro-rated for part-time employees. DMUSD assistant superintendent of human resource services Tim Asfazadour called it “a one-time stipend” and said it was “to offset the increased cost of health benefits.” Asfazadour said the district employs about 300 full-time and 300 part-time people, 21 of whom work at the district office rather than a school site.
