Nation singer Eric Church writes song for Vegas victims

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –

Country vocalist Eric Church debuted a brand-new song Wednesday night titled “Why Not Me” committed to the victims of Las Vegas’ lethal shooting.

Church carried out the song live when he took the stage at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. He later on posted it on his Facebook page on Thursday night with a wholehearted message discussing his experience with the crowd when he played at the Route 91 Harvest Celebration last Friday in Las Vegas.

Church composed the following message on his Facebook page together with the video.

“This previous Friday, I played the Harvest Music Celebration in Vegas. I was the headliner. I kept an eye out there, at that crowd, in that place. It was our last show of the year and I watched them hold American flags up during “How ‘Bout You.” I watched them put an American scarf around my neck throughout “Springsteen,” they held records up when I played “Record Year,” they held boots up when I played “These Boots.” I was so moved by it, generally due to the fact that I looked at ’em and went “This is my crowd. I have actually seen this crowd all year, they’re mine.” They originated from all over the country because it was our last program, and I did something various on the last tune on “Springsteen.” I jumped down on the speaker, and I went down, really on the flooring, it was a high stage so I really jumped out on the ground. And there was a little row that split the crowd, and it went all the method to my front of home man and it divided the crowd on either side so, the crowd was on the right side, the crowd was on the left side. I decreased the ideal side and I shook everybody’s hand and I told them “Thank you for coming, it’s been a heck of a year, it’s been a hell of a year actually.” And I went all the method down the right side, waved at my noise person, came back up the left side, smiling faces, hands in the air, photos being taken. I jumped back up on phase and played “Holdin’ My Own” and “A Male Who Was Gon na Pass away Young.” And Two Days later on, in those locations that I stood, was carnage. Those are my individuals. Those are my fans.

I didn’t want to be here tonight. I didn’t wish to play guitar. I didn’t wish to stroll on this phase, however last night, let me attempt to get this out, last night somebody sent me a video of a girl called Heather Melton and she was speaking with Anderson Cooper on CNN and she had on our Church Choir Trip shirt. And he stated, “exactly what brought you to Vegas?” and she goes “We went there to see Eric Church because he was Sonny’s [her other half who passed away] it was his person, and we went there to see his guy.” Then she stated “We have tickets for the Grand Ole Opry tomorrow night.” And there’s a, over here, section 3, row F, if you exist in row F, there’s some empty seats and that’s their seats. And, I’m going to tell you something, the factor I’m here, the factor I’m here this evening, is because of Heather Melton and her partner Sonny, who passed away, and everyone that existed. I’ll tell you something, I saw that crowd. I saw them with their hands in the air. I saw them with boots in the air. And exactly what I saw, that moment in time that was frozen there’s no quantity of bullets that can remove. None.

And that night, something broke in me, on Sunday night when that happened. And the only way I’ve ever repaired anything that’s been broken in me is with music. So I composed a song …”

The shooting took place at the festival occurring Sunday night outside Mandalay Bay. It took the lives 58 victims and left more than 500 hurt. Church is the second country artist to dedicate a tune to them after Maren Morris devoted her tune “Dear Hate” to them.

The Future of Mentor in Clark County– and the Nation

From the earliest days of our republic, we have thought that education was critical to our democracy. Our founders knew that the health of our nation, the health and wellbeing of the citizenry — and especially the strength of the democracy– would be built on a well-educated population. Though disputes have actually been fierce regarding who is to be informed, just how much education they require, and whether to determine its value in economic development, individual growth, or societal growth, basically, we have actually constantly agreed that informing our people is necessary.

With this belief in mind, in 1917 our country started an unique experiment: We required education to be offered to all our people free of charge. Now, after a century of well-intended effort and research by countless professionals, 17 presidents and their respective programs, and 50 congresses armed with the education reform du jour, honestly, we’re still experimenting. We still have not found out ways to make our instructional system work regularly for all kids.

How can this be? The previous several years have actually been filled with statements that THE originality– the indisputable “fix”– for public education has actually been found. “If only we permit moms and dads more option in picking their kid’s school,” or “find much better methods to hold instructors and schools accountable,” or “develop better tests,” or “standardize curriculum,” or “incorporate more innovation,” or “broaden states’ authority.” The list of efforts is long.

Yet, there is hardly any evidence that these efforts, separately or collectively, have done much to enhance instructional outcomes or equity. Why have these efforts been so unproductive?

Let’s recall for a moment.

Almost all of these reform techniques are grounded on concepts codified in a single policy document: A Country at Threat: The Necessary for Education Reform. Often credited as the catalyst for a pivotal shift in public education policy, the genuinely innovative concepts in A Nation at Danger changed the way our country, and much of the western world, thought about and approached informing its citizenry.

This really cutting-edge set of ideas was launched in — 1983. The same year Motorola unveiled the very first hand-held mobile telephone, aptly named “The Brick” for its weight, shape, and size. In the years considering that, future-focused innovators have actually pushed the limits of innovation and engineering in ways that were just slightly pictured, if imagined at all, by those who clamored to obtain their cutting edge “Brick.”

Over that exact same period, the education and policy neighborhoods have actually extremely focused on improving the original ideas presented in A Country at Risk. From America 2000 in 1991 to No Kid Left in 2001 to our most present model, Every Trainee Succeeds, each strategy guaranteed to overhaul education from bottom to top. And, essential to these reforms, was the continuous mission to determine best practices. For 35 years, actually billions of dollars have actually been purchased enormous efforts to discover teachers, schools, and states that seemed to be performing better than others, identify exactly what it was they were doing that may discuss this, and then implement (or impose) these finest practices more broadly.

The problem with finest practices is that, by nature, they’re constantly out of date.

They represent the “finest” of exactly what was being done in some location and at some time in the past. At many, they improve accomplishment of yesterday’s objectives; at worst, they actively promote the status quo by continually looking backwards rather than forward.

To satisfy the requirements of students in our quickly progressing world, we should set our sights beyond settling for the very best we when understood and even understand now. The issues, problems, and requirements of yesterday may no longer be relevant, so even the best techniques understood to address them might have little effect to the world of tomorrow. To achieve tomorrow’s outcomes, we should set our sights on developing the next practices necessary to serve the future generations and the concerns they will deal with.

The Future Is Here

Considering that the College of Education’s creation in the really early days of UNLV’s history, among its major goals has been to inform and prepare premium instructors to serve in Nevada’s schools. But informing our state’s educators is far from the college’s only function.

Our faculty have actually always been engaged in future-focused research study to notify policymaking and confirm new expert techniques for a new period of students. Significantly, research study and methods stemming from the Silver State today have intrinsic advantages for even more than simply Nevadans.

Many have actually noted exactly what the a June 22 New york city Times piece recently included: Las Vegas is the future. The population of Southern Nevada today– in terms of race, ethnic background, gender and age– is nearly similar to forecasts of U.S. demographics in 40 years. In essence, Nevada’s present is America’s future.

For the College of Education, our community provides a “living lab” in which to create, research, assess, and cultivate the newest strategies– the next practices– that will educate future generations … Made in Nevada, shared from coast to coast and beyond.

Challenging the status quo, our professors and trainees have actually accepted the job to introduce modification. Pioneering new research and screening new techniques to accomplish our country’s grand promise of fair education for all residents is our mission. From studying the benefits of strenuous early childhood education in a fully-inclusive setting, like the Lynn Bennett Early Youth Development Center, to developing more efficient methods to utilize virtual truth in teacher preparation, as in our Interaction and Media Sciences Laboratory, or enhancing the use of real-time data to adjust and enhance direction and learning, as in our Metacognition and Inspiration in Advanced Knowing Technologies Laboratory, our faculty’s research study and findings are shifting the method we, and our peers, technique education and educator preparation.

This focus is bringing UNLV nationwide acclaim as a leader in establishing useful options to future instructional difficulties. The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) recently featured UNLV as one of 4 colleges of education leading innovative research collaboration programs with their neighborhood’s preK-12 schools. The Abriendo Caminos/Opening Pathways program– a UNLV effort to include more teachers of color to the pipeline– was picked by the U.S. Department of Education from more than 90 candidates as a focus task for the 2016 Teach to Lead Summit. As a result, we are producing actionable prepare for school districts to start implementing the program in their own, increasingly varied, schools.

UNLV’s function as education innovators is anchored in being unanchored … We nicely refuse to be tied down by what has actually been established as”the best.” Precisely where this takes us remains to be seen, however understanding there is constantly more to research study, more to study, and brand-new answers to be discovered, will be exactly what drives us into the future. We will constantly pursue exactly what’s much better than the world’s presumed “finest.”

People in South Dakota to open nation’s first cannabis resort

Expert Jonathan Hunt checks seedlings growing in the brand-new cannabis growing center on the Flandreau Santee Sioux Reservation in Flandreau, S.D., Sept. 24, 2015. The task, according to the people, could produce up to $2 million a month in profit. The first joints are anticipated to go on sale Dec. 31 at a New Year’s Eve party.

Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2015|11:30 p.m.

FLANDREAU, South Dakota– The Santee Sioux is opening the country’s first cannabis resort on its reservation in South Dakota. The experiment might provide a brand-new money-making model for people nationwide looking for economic opportunities beyond gambling establishments.

Santee Sioux leaders plan to grow their own pot and offer it in a cigarette smoking lounge that consists of a nightclub, arcade video games, bar and food service, and eventually, fruit machine and an outside music location.

“We desire it to be an adult play ground,” tribal President Anthony Reider stated. “There’s no place else in America that has something like this.”

The project, according to the people, might generate as much as $2 million a month in earnings, and work is already underway on the growing facility. The very first cannabis cigarettes are anticipated to go on sale Dec. 31 at a New Year’s Eve party.

The legalization of cannabis on the Santee Sioux land was available in June, months after the Justice Department detailed a brand-new policy that allows Indian tribes to grow and offer marijuana under the exact same conditions as some states.

Numerous people are hesitant to jump into the pot company. But the earnings potential has actually brought in the interest of many other people, just as the launching of slots and table games nearly 27 years ago.

“The huge majority of tribes have little to no economic opportunity,” stated Blake Trueblood, company development director at the National Center for American Indian Business Development. For those people, “this is something that you might take a look at and say, ‘We have actually got to do something.'”

A marijuana resort open to the general public has never been tried in the U.S. Even in states such as Colorado and Washington, where pot is fully legal, usage in public locations is typically prohibited, although pro-pot activists are looking for to loosen up those restrictions. Colorado tolerates a handful of personal cannabis clubs.

Unlike the large reservations in western South Dakota, where poverty is widespread, the little-known Flandreau Santee Sioux Reservation is on 5,000 acres of gently rolling land along the Big Sioux River.

The Santee Sioux hope to utilize pot in the exact same method that many people depend on casinos– making money for community services and to offer a regular monthly income to tribal members. The existing business support household houses, a senior living neighborhood, a center and a community center offering afterschool programs.

Reider hopes marijuana revenues can money more housing, a dependency treatment center and an overhaul of the center.

The prosperity that marijuana might give Indian Nation includes huge caveats. The drug stays illegal under federal law, and just Congress can alter its status. The administration that moves into the White House in 2017 might reverse the Justice Department’s choice that made marijuana growing possible on tribal lands.

Egypt’s leader states nation in ‘relentless war’.

Sunday, Sept. 27, 2015|7:47 a.m.

UNITED NATIONS (AP)– Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said in an interview that the Mideast area needs to comply to defeat a worsening terrorist risk that has actually led to a “relentless war” in Egypt and created the risk of some countries “moving into failure.”

In a varied interview with The Associated Press Saturday night, el-Sissi also stated that Syria must not be divided after its civil war, that the Egyptian military have to be “augmented” to beat terrorists combating in the Sinai and Western Desert, and that efforts need to be restored to fix the Palestinian issue and expand Egypt’s almost 40-year-peace with Israel to consist of more Arab countries.

Handling the Palestinian concern, he stated, could “change the face of the area and … produce enormous enhancement to the circumstance. … I’m positive by nature and I say that there is an excellent opportunity.”

The 60-year-old previous military chief, who ran for president and assumed workplace in 2014 after the army ousted his predecessor Mohammed Morsi the year before, spoke with AP at a New York hotel on Saturday night after he resolved a U.N. summit that adopted brand-new development objectives for the next 15 years. He will also go to the annual ministerial meeting of the General Assembly at U.N. headquarters that starts Monday.

Speaking just days after pardoning and releasing two imprisoned Al-Jazeera English reporters in Cairo, el-Sissi said he is open to clemency to other journalists who have actually been attempted and convicted in absentia. But he stated he would only act within his powers as president and would likewise respect the prerogatives of Egypt’s judiciary.

“Feel confident that we are constantly keen on sorting out concerns and problems, particularly those that associate with journalists and to the media workers,” he added.

El-Sissi, speaking through a translator, said that regional security is in “its most susceptible state.”

“Let it be enough to take a look at the map and find nations that are struggling with failure. There is an increase in the extremist groups. There is the problem of the evacuees that are flowing into Europe. With all that in mind, we can sense how tough and how complicated” the challenge is, he stated.

“I don’t wish to say we are late in doing exactly what we should have done, however (beating the hazard will certainly require) a great deal of effort, and not just a great deal of effort however as a matter of reality it entails an excellent quantity of understanding and cooperation from every country … to bring back the nations that are now sliding into this vicious circle of failure.”

In that vein, the Egyptian leader cited whatever he called an “enhancing” relationship with the United States. Ties are “strategic and stable,” he said.

It has actually been a tumultuous period in Egypt. Longtime leader Hosni Mubarak was ousted in 2011 in the Arab Spring revolt that ultimately caused the setup of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi as Egypt’s first widely elected president; he then was ignored by the military amidst another popular uprising.

“The last 2 years were an actual test of the endurance and stamina” of the ties with the united state, el-Sissi stated.

Ever since, Egypt has actually been dealing with a revolt by militants based in the Sinai who have promised allegiance to the Islamic State group, and militants have actually carried out battles and shootings versus police officers and soldiers in Cairo and other cities.

Security forces have actually broken down hard on Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists. Hundreds of Islamists have been eliminated and thousands detained, and Morsi and other Brotherhood leaders have had death sentences released versus them in numerous trials. The trials and the crackdown have actually brought heavy criticism from human rights groups. El-Sissi’s federal government competes the Brotherhood is complicit in violence, a claim the group rejects, saying authorities want to crush them as a political opposition.

Asserted el-Sissi: “The problem with the Muslim Brotherhood is not an issue between the federal government of Egypt and these individuals. The real problem is in between the Egyptian individuals and the Muslim Brotherhood.” He said the Brotherhood has actually provided “a very bad impression” and Egyptians “are not able to forgive and forget.”

The Egyptian military, he said, “has constantly been a factor for stability” and should be enhanced due to the fact that it deals with “a ferocious war against terrorism and extremism … Increasing the military ability of the Egyptian military means that it can strike a strategic balance” for the area.

Describing the civil war that has actually smashed Syria, the president stated “we are really eager that Syria stays as a country and as a state and does not divide into smaller states.”

He cautioned that the collapse of Syria would indicate that all its weapons and devices would fall into the hands “of the terrorists.” If that occurs, he said, the risk will certainly not just hurt Syria but spill over to its next-door neighbors and “will certainly posture a severe threat to the rest of the region, and this is whatever we fear.”

Asked how extremists might be reduced the effects of, he provided no immediate option: “This is precisely the issue we are discussing.”

UNLV Ranked Second A lot of Varied School in the Nation

UNLV continues to increase in U.S. News & & World Report’s yearly listing of the country’s most varied universities for undergrads.

The university is tied for second in the publication’s annual Best Ethnic Diversity listing released today, a jump from sixth in 2014. UNLV has actually placed in the leading 10 for the past five years.

“This recognition is a reflection of our figured out efforts making UNLV an open and inclusive environment for students,” said Rainier Spencer, UNLV chief diversity officer. “As UNLV becomes a top tier national university, we need to are more deliberate in our concentrate on making sure that these varied students all experience the type of success they are looking for by coming right here.”

The Best Ethnic Diversity category determines colleges where students are most likely to encounter undergraduates from racial or ethnic groups different from their own. It kept in mind UNLV’s high portion of Hispanic students.

Majority of all undergraduate students at UNLV report belonging to a racial or ethnic minority. Previously this year, UNLV became the very first four-year organization in Nevada to reach Hispanic enrollment of 25 percent, meeting the U.S Department of Education’s definition of an Hispanic Serving Institution. The university also meets Minority Serving Institution requirements as an Asian American, Native-American, and Pacific-Islander-Serving Organization.

The U.S. News report, which evaluated information from the 2014-15 scholastic year, determined an increase in UNLV’s diversity index from 0.73 to 0.74 on a scale of 0.1 to 1.0. UNLV was among 4 universities with a 0.74 diversity index. The school in the leading area made 0.76.

The listing thinks about the general mix of Black, Hispanic, American Indian, Asian-American, Pacific Islander, White, and multiracial (2 or more races) students. It does not consist of global students.
