Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply At least 40,000 Floridians registered to vote Tuesday, but U.S. District Court Judge Mark Walker calculated Thursday up to 20,000 people may have been left in the lurch when the state’s online voter-registration portal crashed Monday.Why the crash occurred is not as easily calculated, Walker mused Thursday during a hearing on a lawsuit lodged by voting rights groups that claim the 19-hour voter registration extension granted after Monday’s RegistertoVoteFlorida.gov crash was inadequate.The groups, led by Dream Defenders, New Florida Majority, Organize Florida and LatinoJustice, are suing the state to reopen voter registration for two days to provide adequate time for Floridians to be notified of the extension and allow them to register.The Florida Division of Elections (FDOE) had not, as of Thursday afternoon, updated its rolls, or closed the books, on final registration for the Nov. 3 election but said about 70,100 people successfully accessed the portal Monday before the system slowed to a crawl about 5 p.m.According to the FDOE, Secretary of State Laurel Lee said “unprecedented” volume on the site exceeded 1.1 million users an hour Monday afternoon. State officials said the spike may have been fueled by a tweet by pop superstar Ariana Grande, who encouraged fellow Floridians to register on her Twitter account, which has 77 million followers. Her tweet was retweeted nearly 7,000 times.After 5 p.m. Monday, 8,100 people registered to vote before the midnight deadline. State officials said about 49,000 were people trying to access the system at the peak of the slowdown. Preliminary data indicated 50,000 people accessed the site during the 19-hour extension that expired at 7 p.m. Tuesday.State attorney Mohammad Jazil said based on “preliminary conversations,” the number of people who registered during the extension was “north of 40,000.”Jazil and other attorneys for the state argued the 19-hour extension was adequate, noting other venues were available to register, including in-person at an elections office or by mail. They said another extension would be confusing and a burden for county elections supervisors.Walker questioned the state’s cavalier attitude about the crash and the adequacy of its response.“Are you seriously taking the position that if it shut down for hours, and 50,000 or 60,000 people don’t get to register, that’s a minor thing? For the life of me, I don’t understand that argument,” Walker said.Based on the site’s traffic timeline presented by the state, Walker estimated up to 20,000 Floridians frustrated in their attempt to sign onto the voting rolls Monday did not register during Tuesday’s extension.Plaintiffs’ attorney Chiraag Bains said the intense traffic doesn’t correspond with registration estimates.“That tells me a lot of people were trying to register and that potentially a lot of people couldn’t,” he said, noting the extension “was announced midday Tuesday and ended at 7 p.m. the same day, a span when many people may have been working.”As with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity’s CONNECT unemployment portal that crashed in March, Florida’s voter registration website has been criticized as inadequate since it was launched in 2017. It experienced technical difficulties on the October 2018 voter registration deadline as well.Democrats said Gov. Ron DeSantis should have anticipated a crush of new voters registering online and bulked up the site before, not after, the inevitable happened.Walker agreed.“You all knew people were using this website based on past years,” he told state attorneys. “You knew thousands of people were using it, thousands of Floridians – actual U.S. citizens – and it failed for hours.”Walker said he would issue a ruling soon, perhaps as early as Thursday evening.last_img read more

Creating an L shaped house, determined by the lot’s geometry, with flowing mass of blocks with horizontal lines and characteristics. The structure is relatively closed in the direction of the street in order to provide privacy, while part of the design concept was to create a stimulus and attract people to enter the house, like peeking through a keyhole. This concept is translated into the design of a front façade, built out of two layers with an opening in the wall, while the second layer, the inner wall, is in black stone cladding, with glass windows. All of these are slightly concealed by an olive tree, so that the effect is visible during the day as well (the wall covered by the stone and the olive tree), and in the evening by the light emerging through the windows, some of which are concealed by the tree. Save this picture!© Elad SarigThe stimulus continues, thanks to the use of the dimension of time in the architectural design, by creating a clear, narrow and long entrance path with iron girders over the shading, built in rhythms up to the entrance to the structure, and the accompanying wall in black stone cladding, like the stone in the front of the structure. Save this picture!© Elad SarigThe drama of the structure is created by the sight revealed when opening the door. In contrast to the mysteriousness surrounding the structure, the inner space is open, with glass walls, to the internal garden with a pool in its center.Save this picture!© Elad SarigThe interior-exterior relationship is used as a significant motif in the structure design, beginning with creating a one-level house in order to assimilate with the surrounding rustic landscape and not create a conspicuous structure.Save this picture!© Elad SarigAnother design motif was planned to create assimilation with the surroundings and a modest non-extravagant front, is the decoration-free façade.Save this picture!© Elad SarigThe guest bathroom, family bedroom and additional bedrooms are all connected to internal gardens by completely transparent glass walls, which bring nature into the structure.In the house design, the entrance is through a path accompanied by a long concrete beam with the shading of iron girders which lead to the front door.Save this picture!© Elad SarigNatural shading – in contrast to the slightly mysterious front façade, the wide living room and the entire garden area connected to the house opens with an unusual interior-exterior relationship. The pool and the front yard are delimited with concrete beams and columns which continue from the house, and there is actually no clear separation between the house and the yard and exterior. The windows and doors were planned according to the sun’s movement and exposures in order to conserve energy and create real green, non-trendy architecture.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessSchool Classroom / Loïc Picquet ArchitecteSelected Projects’Architecture and City’ ExhibitionEvent Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/379796/house-in-talmei-elazar-dan-and-hila-israelevitz-architects Clipboard “COPY” Projectslast_img read more

He had earlier been jailed on 26 June 2000 by the third division of the Teheran revolutionary court after taking part two months earlier in what was considered an “anti-Islamic” conference in Berlin.

Square seat makes life too comfy for certain element – O’Hanlon

first_imgTHE installation of a wooden seat next to the fountain at the refurbished St John’s Square, has angered local councillor, Kieran O’Hanon. All it does, he claims, is to make it more comfortable and attractive for those people who enjoy consuming alcohol in the public square. “When this restorative work was commencing I specifically requested the engineering department to provide some feature to deter certain people – and I’m mainly talking about an element that were regularly gathering there and consuming alcohol and leaving behind bottles and cans, cigarette butts and other litter”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up It would have been more beneficial, he added if measures had been taken to protect the landmark fountain in the square from vandalism.Cllr O’Hanlon, who was successful in getting the former city manager, Tom Mackey to agree to a restoration of the water fountain some years ago, told the Limerick Post that he is very disappointed that the recent work carried out on the square did not include “some measures to deter people from vandalising the fountain.“This old historic area in front of St John’s Cathedral, which has the sculpture of Patrick Sarsfield in its grounds and sections of the old walls of Limerick in nearby locations, is visited by a lot of Limerick people returning from abroad and by those coming to the city for the first time.“I am not happy that my request, which was made, following on from complaints made by people to me and from my own dissatisfaction with the situation, has not been taken on board but I will be talking to the engineers in City Hall again about this”.A development that he is happy about, however, is the newly completed entrance from O’Brien Park on Clare Street, which gives access to the Park Canal Bank,“This is very welcome, especially to those who use the park on a regular basis and to the local people – it means that they can gain convenient access to the canal bank, if they want to take a longer walk or a run, cycle or some exercise – I’m very pleased with this development”.

Abuse investigation underway at home of Chiefs’ star wide receiver Tyreek Hill

first_imgNick Cammett/Diamond Images/Getty Images(OVERLAND PARK, Kan.) — A police investigation into the abuse of a child is underway at the home of Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill, according to police reports.Two police reports in the past two weeks detail an investigation into allegations of battery, child abuse and neglect at the Overland Park, Kansas, home. The police reports were obtained by Kansas City ABC affiliate KMBC-TV.Hill is not mentioned in the police report from Thursday, but his partner, Crystal Espinal, is listed under “others involved.”The victim, listed only as a “juvenile,” suffered a minor injury in the incident, according to the report.Hill has not been charged with any crime.The Kansas City Chiefs acknowledged they were aware of the incident in a statement.“The club is aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill,” it reads. “We are in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities. We will have no further comment at this time.”Hill has been elected to the Pro Bowl in all three of his seasons in the NFL, all with the Chiefs. He was an All Pro as a returner in his rookie season and as a wide receiver last season. He has twice finished in the top 10 in the league in receiving yards.News of the abuse incidents broke on the same day Kareem Hunt, Hill’s former teammate, was suspended for eight games by the league after video emerged last year of him shoving and kicking a woman in February 2018. Hunt was immediately cut by the Chiefs, and later signed with the Cleveland Browns.Hill’s agent did not respond to a request for comment from KMBC-TV. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
