Lee’s birthday Jan. 19, Confederacy President Jefferson Davis’ birthday June 3 and Confederate Memorial Day on April 26By John Haughey | The Center Square Florida observes three state holidays commemorating confederate leaders: Gen. Robert E. Lee’s birthday Jan. 19, Confederacy President Jefferson Davis’ birthday June 3 and Confederate Memorial Day on April 26.State Rep. Fentrice Driskell, D-Tampa, said she will introduce a bill in 2021 seeking to remove those days from the state’s holiday calendar and elevate June 19 – or Juneteenth – from a day of observance to a state holiday.“Juneteenth should be a legal holiday,” Driskell tweeted last week. “Marking it as a mere day of observance is insufficient. Our state’s legal observance of Confederate holidays is outdated and has no place in Florida’s present or future.”Florida state Rep. Fentrice Driskell, D-Tampa; Steve Cannon / APDriskell later said in a statement that during the next legislative session, she will “introduce legislation to repeal the Confederate holidays that are official legal holidays in Florida. No world should exist in which these Confederate holidays are elevated above the contributions of these slaves, their descendants, and those who fought for their freedom.”June 19 is celebrated across the U.S. as the day when the last enslaved African Americans in Texas were freed in 1865. It also is known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, Liberation Day and Emancipation Day.While not an official federal holiday, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed a 2018 resolution in honor of the day. Legislation has been introduced in Congress several times to make Juneteenth either a national day of observance, similar to Flag Day or Patriot Day, or a full-scale federal holiday.Florida is one of 47 states and the District of Columbia that recognize Juneteenth as a day of observance, but only Texas has adopted Juneteenth as a paid holiday for state employees.During his Juneteenth proclamation issued Friday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis did not mention Driskell’s call for a state holiday, but called it “the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery.”Juneteenth “is an important opportunity to honor the principles of the Declaration of Independence and celebrate the achievements and contributions African Americans have made, and continue to make, in Florida and across our nation,” DeSantis said in his Juneteenth Day proclamation.While Driskell’s prospective bill may be the first time a proposal seeking to make June 19 a state holiday has been introduced in Florida, legislation to remove the confederate holidays from the state calendar have failed before.In 2018, Senate Bill 224, sponsored by Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, sought to eliminate the birthdays of Lee and Davis and Confederate Memorial Day from the state’s list of legal holidays, which does not mean they are paid holidays.Book’s bill quickly was politicized and received considerable pushback in its one committee hearing from speakers who said the measure would be “cultural genocide” and an “insult” to their ancestors.There are 21 days on Florida’s official state calendar listed as state holidays. In addition to the three commemorating the Confederate cause, they include Susan B. Antony’s Feb. 15 birthday, Good Friday, Pascua Florida Day (April 2), Farmers’ Day (second Monday in October) and “Shrove Tuesday” as part of Mardi Gras celebrations.Nine holidays are paid holidays in Florida: New Year’s Day, Dr. Martin Luther King’s Jan. 20 birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veterans’ Day, Thanksgiving Day and the Friday afterward, and Christmas Day.

Community News Pasadena Mom Tries Novel Approach to Find Kidney for Her Daughter From STAFF REPORTS Published on Thursday, October 1, 2015 | 4:33 pm Photo courtesy Jenna Franks Kidney FB pageThe family of a Pasadena woman has tried seemingly every means to find a matching kidney donor for her, and now the search has gone viral. After the mother of 29 year-old Jenna Franks decided to paint a sign on the family SUV saying “Daughter Needs a Kidney Type O,” the inventive strategy has swept social media.Twitter user Tatum Bateman saw the sign and tweeted it with the message, “This honestly needs to go viral.”Since that time and more than 8,000 retweets later, the picture has had more than 700,000 views, and the Franks family has received at least 25 offers from people saying they are willing to be tested for a possible match.Jenna Franks was diagnosed with a rare urological disease that destroyed her kidneys when she was 15. She began dialysis as a high school senior and it went on for three years until she received a kidney transplant when she was 20.After seven years, her body rejected the kidney, and only dialysis has kept her alive, spending 12 hours per day devoted to the procedure.“My life pretty much revolves around my illness,” Franks tells TV station KNBC4.Franks’ mother Karol has been using Facebook, Craigslist, YouTube and nearly all social media in hopes of finding a proper match. Karol herself cannot be a donor because of a heart problem.“I have a heart valve problem which keeps me from donating, which just kills me,” Karol Franks on a Facebook page created for her daughter’s search for a kidney. “I wish I could make life easier for her. She is very courageous and never complains, but life on dialysis is not easy.”After the tweet was posted, Karol was shocked at what happened.“My phone kept going – bing! Bing! Bing!” Karol told KNBC4. “And I said, ‘Look at this. These people are writing because of that sign.’ ”The family now has renewed hopes that a match will come soon.To learn more about Jenna Franks and her search, visit her Facebook page, www.facebook.com/WantedKidneyDonor, or send an email to [email protected] faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Community News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Make a comment 0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Your email address will not be published.

Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Two Caltech scientists, Associate Professor of Theoretical Astrophysics Phil Hopkins and his postdoctoral fellow Chris Hayward, provided scientific simulations for a new IMAX film, Voyage of Time, directed by Terrence Malick and narrated by Brad Pitt.The film is Malick’s first foray into documentary storytelling. According to the website of the California Science Center, where the movie is playing in Los Angeles, the movie is an “up-close-and-personal journey that spans eons from the Big Bang to the dinosaur age to our present human world…and beyond.”Hopkins and Hayward provided state-of-the-art simulations of galaxies colliding and evolving over time for the IMAX movie. These simulations, performed on supercomputers, help researchers understand how galaxies, and our universe as a whole, evolve from basic ingredients, such as hydrogen gas.The movie is playing from October 7 to November 18.

Two economists from the Detroit branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago will lead an economic forecast discussion on Thursday, January 22, in Flint, Michigan, according to an announcement from Baker College of Flint Center for Business.Senior economist Paul Traub and business economist Martin Lavelle, both of the Detroit branch of Chicago’s Fed Bank, will lead the discussion, which will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at Baker College in Flint on Thursday. Expected discussion topics will be slow wage growth and employment at both the state and national levels. Attendance for the event is free.The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported earlier this month that the nation’s unemployment rate had fallen to 5.6 percent, its lowest level in six and a half years. According to BLS, Michigan’s unemployment rate as of November 2014 was 6.7 percent, a full percentage point higher than the national average, but the rate in Michigan did experience a decline of 0.4 percentage points from October to November and by 1.8 percentage points from November 2013 to November 2o14.In November 2014, according to BLS, Michigan gained 39,300 jobs from the previous November and 11,100 jobs from October 2014.

Summary. A m´lange on Fredriksen Island, South Orkney Islands, is part of a Mesozoic subduction- accretion complex which formed along the western, Pacific side of Gondwana. It consists of a chaotic arrangement of irregular sized blocks, up to 8 m across, of basic pillow lava, chert, felsite and epiclastic sandstone in a pervasively sheared cataclastic matrix. Inclusions are typically lozenge-shaped and are characteristic of a tectonic m´lange. As the m´lange incorporates both possible ocean floor material that was accreted on to the continental margin and inner slope basin sediments it probably formed beneath the trench-slope basin along a shear zone at a high level in the subduction complex.
Approaches to describe gene regulation networks can be categorized by increasing detail, as network parts lists, network topology models, network control logic models or dynamic models. We discuss the current state of the art for each of these approaches. We study the relationship between different topology models, and give examples how they can be used to infer functional annotations for genes of unknown function. We introduce a new simple way of describing dynamic models called finite state linear model (FSLM). We discuss the gap between the parts list and topology models on one hand, and network logic and dynamic models, on the other hand. The first two classes of models have reached a genome-wide scale, while for the other model classes high-throughput technologies are yet to make a major impact.
