Proposed Florida bill would require schools to test for lead in…

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Focus on Florida: The LegislatureIn today’s schools, there are several groups of people who have the job of making sure students are safe, happy, and learning efficiently. In fact, besides teachers, 50% of the public school workforce consists of people like nurses, guidance counselors, and speech therapists. And while these people do a great job of taking care of students, it sometimes takes someone outside of the school system to make a necessary change. This is why State Senator Lauren Book proposed a bill to help make drinking water safer for children in Florida schools.Florida State Senator     Lauren BookBook’s proposed bill aims to protect students from lead-laced water. Lead has already caused health concerns and issues in some school districts, prompting them to either shut off water flow or increase testing policies.The new bill, Senate Bill 66, will require all schools in Florida that were built before 1986 to test and filter their drinking water. The schools will also have to track the water sources where students can safely consume water with the installation of barcodes.Florida is one of the many states that does not require schools to test for metal toxins or other contaminants. And most schools do not have the funding or resources to begin testing on their own. According to a recent study, only two Florida school districts have current plans to start district-wide lead testing and only 19 schools have their water tested for lead every one to three years.Sarasota County Schools began testing for lead for the first time last month after neighboring school districts found levels of lead that surpasses the EPA’s federal standard. While the test results have not been shared, the school did say they would look into filters if needed.Unfortunately, lead in drinking water is not uncommon, especially for the 15 million households in the U.S. who get their drinking water from private wells. Lead consumption can lead to dire health consequences, especially in children. Dr. Ashfaq Fatmi notes that lead can damage the brain, which can lead to delayed development, difficulty focusing, and can even possibly result in anemia.Dr. Fatmi explains, “Symptoms appear very late when the level goes up to a toxic level, so we cannot wait until then because the damage will be irreversible.”This is one of the many reasons Senator Brook is proposing this bill. Identifying bad and toxic water before it causes damage is essential. And with how inadequate current testing policies are, a state-wide bill has been deemed necessary.

A renovation and extension of a semi-detached house near Antwerp. The house shares a little alley with its neighbour. The alley provides a direct connection from the street to the garden. The new extension is not an addition to the old house. We propose a second house. This back house is a mirror image, a twin to the front house. It’s a brick house again, with a pitched tiled roof, living space on ground floor and some rooms higher up, and a chimney and a staircase once more.The ‘front’ facade of the back house is oriented to the garden. The side facade folds inward at the connection of both houses. The long alley has a centre point now: a little terrace adjoining the kitchen half way.Save this picture!© Karin BorghoutsJust as the house is a mirror image, so is the cavity wall. The brickwork behaves as wallpaper. Every indoor space has its own texture of brickwork. The same pattern returns on the outside, exposing the section of the building.Save this picture!© Karin BorghoutsSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Karin BorghoutsProject gallerySee allShow lessIn Pursuit of Architecture: A Conference on Buildings and IdeasEvent2013 Restaurant & Bar Design Award WinnersArchitecture News Share ArchDailylast_img read more

DSC responds to Charity Commission research with more positive outlook

first_img Public trust and confidence in charities may not be as low as believed, according to the Directory of Social Change (DSC).Responding to yesterday’s (28th June) Charity Commission research, which stated that public trust and confidence in charities has fallen to the lowest recorded level since monitoring began in 2005, DSC policy officer Ciaran Price warned against over-reacting to the findings.According to Price, statistics on how much people donate, how much time they give to charity, and how many people volunteer as trustees provide a better measure of public trust, with trust greater where people have a personal connection to a charity.He said:‘The real test of how much the public trusts us is in how much they give to charity, how much time they give as volunteers, and how many people volunteer as trustees. All I’ve seen recently in those measurements suggests something really positive. Individual charities should be more interested in the trust and confidence of their existing supporters and beneficiaries before deciding they have a problem relating to this report.”He added: Advertisement “It’s obvious that people trust charities more if they are familiar with them. The problem isn’t entirely about charities not communicating enough. The public rightly wants transparency but realistically we can’t spoon feed the public about how we use every penny they donate. We can advertise the fact charities’ accounts are freely available online but that doesn’t mean people are going to read them. One thing we can do is talk more about the big picture – how absolutely everybody benefits from the work of charities, in ways they do not even realise. As a sector we need to get that message out loud and clear.”The DSC has developed a game, called #EverybodyBenefits (pictured), to demonstrate to the public the extent to which every person in every community benefits from the work of charities. It is inviting people to play and share the game at www.dsc.org.uk/everybodybenefits.

However, this rule does not apply to returner applicants.Frog Camp Director Board 2018Photo Credit: Devan PeplowSydney Irvine, sophomore nursing major, said she applied to be a new facilitator this year.“The application involves open-ended questions asking why you want to be a Frog Camp Facilitator, what traits you see in a role model and what you hope the campers experience during the camp,” Irvine said. “The application process was pretty simple.”After students answer the questions, they’re asked to take a personality test and then sign up for their interview time, she said.Frog Camp Director Board member and junior business major Mavis Tang said returner interviews start Jan. 22, and new applicants begin theirs on Jan. 24.What is Frog Camp?Frog Camp is an extended orientation program for incoming students. It gives students the opportunity to learn more about TCU and make friends, Tang said.The program consists of multiple camps through the months of June and August.“Each camp is unique to itself and located all around Texas and the world,” Tang said.The Frog Camp Director Board is looking for people who have leadership potential and care about Frog Camp, TCU and incoming students.Frog Camp Director Board 2018Photo Credit: Devan Peplow“We want different types of people to apply,” Tang said. “No matter what kind of personality they have.”Tang said the application process is similar from last year, but former work crew members who apply again for the facilitator role won’t be doing the traditional two-minute intro. The introduction was created as a way to give applicants two minutes to do whatever they feel represents themselves and is still required for first-time applicants.Chris Dorr, senior strategic communication major, said there’s no way to prepare for the interview because everyone just needs to be themselves.“It’s so important to be yourself because Frog Camp is meant for everyone, so the facilitators can be people from all over TCU,” Dorr said.Tang said the camp’s theme this year is “Frog Camp for Everyone.” Frog Camp Director Board 2018 Twitter Twitter Michelle Rosshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/michelle-ross/ Linkedin Facebook Previous articleMen’s basketball ends losing streak with win over Iowa StateNext articleOkonkwo key to Horned Frog women’s basketball Michelle Ross RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Michelle Ross is a senior Journalism and Communication Studies double major from Austin, Texas.

Patrick Frazee’s ex-girlfriend takes stand at Kelsey Berreth murder trial

first_imgWoodland Park Police Department(CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo.) — A Colorado man accused of killing his fiancée in a vicious assault in her home is now on trial for her murder, and on Wednesday, he came face-to-face with his ex-girlfriend, who is now the prosecution’s star witness.Kelsey Berreth, who had a 1-year-old girl with her fiancé, Patrick Frazee, vanished on Nov. 22, 2018, which was Thanksgiving Day. The 29-year-old’s body has never been found.Frazee was arrested in December. Accused of charges including first-degree murder, he began facing trial last week. His ex-girlfriend, Krystal (Lee) Kenney, claims she was called to help clean up the alleged murder scene. She has pleaded guilty to one count of tampering with physical evidence and is awaiting sentencing once Frazee’s case concludes.Prosecutors allege the attack unfolded on Thanksgiving at Berreth’s Woodland Park, Colorado, home as the couple’s baby sat in a playpen in a back bedroom.Frazee allegedly blindfolded Berreth and had her guess the scents of different candles, according to an arrest affidavit. While Berreth was distracted, Frazee allegedly hit her with a bat, which ultimately killed her, the document said.Kenney, the ex-girlfriend, has claimed that Frazee had three prior plots for killing Berreth, including one that involved Frazee asking her to poison Berreth’s favorite Starbucks drink, a caramel macchiato, according to investigators. Kenney claimed she and Frazee discussed potential drugs that were easy to access because Kenney was a nurse, an investigator said.Kenney and Frazee dated in 2006, and after they broke up, Kenney married a man named Chad Lee. But Kenney testified Wednesday that she was still in love with Frazee when she got married.The exes later reconnected, and she testified that after meeting up in 2015, “We ended up having an affair.”In March 2016, Kenney said, she found out she was pregnant with Frazee’s child. Kenney said she ended the pregnancy, but told Frazee she had a miscarriage. She filed for divorce from Lee in May 2016.In March 2018, which was after Frazee and Berreth’s baby was born, Kenney testified that she met Frazee in Colorado and they “made love” at his home.Kenney testified that Frazee never mentioned that he had a baby and that she eventually found out from a mutual friend.Prosecutors argued in opening statements that Frazee was mentally abusing Berreth and wanted custody of their child. They presented a theory that when Berreth talked about possibly moving, Frazee panicked and enlisted the help of his former girlfriend to kill her.But the defense tried to cast doubt, arguing in opening statements that Frazee’s clothes weren’t bloody and he did not have injuries on his body.The defense has also pointed out that the victim’s body and the murder weapon have never been found.Frazee’s older brother, Sean Frazee, who is a Colorado Springs police officer, testified Tuesday that the family sat down for Thanksgiving dinner at 3 p.m.Patrick Frazee did not show up until 5 p.m. and had his and Berreth’s baby with him, Sean Frazee said on the stand. Investigators believe Patrick Frazee had already killed Berreth by the time he arrived at dinner.Berreth’s supervisor, Raymond Siebring, testified Monday for the prosecution that he received a text from the young mom’s phone the night of Thanksgiving. This text did not have an exclamation point or a smiley face, which was unusual for messages from Berreth, Siebring testified.Days later, on Nov. 25, Siebring said he received a text from Berreth’s phone to say she would be out of work the next week to see her grandmother. Siebring described that as unusual and said Berreth had never asked for a week off over text.David Felis, a Verizon store employee, testified Monday that Patrick Frazee came into the store on Dec. 4 asking questions about security of phone accounts and how information could be retrieved. Felis described Frazee as “extremely frustrated and upset.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
