  • Ministry of Education announces up to $900,000 in transportation funding for the Peace

    first_imgDAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Education Minister Mike Bernier says that province is investing $14.7 million for the new Student Transportation Fund, including a potential $900,000 for the Peace Region.Bernier made the announcement alongside school district officials today at the Dawson Creek school board office. “This funding will help districts provide better bus and transportation services at lower costs to parents,” said Bernier.Under the funding announcement’s criteria, the Peace River North School District will be eligible to receive up to $425,785, while Peace River South district could get up to $441,458. Bernier also says the funding is on-going, not a one time deal.- Advertisement -In order to be eligible for the funding, districts that currently charge parents to subsidize school bus fees must eliminate those fees, and use the funding for transportation services.“I am extremely pleased that Minister Bernier and the ministry have found a way to fund busing for the constituents in my riding,” said Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm. “This is an issue that I have been working very hard on and I am extremely pleased we have got it over the goal line.”School District 60 board chair Ida Campbell welcomed the announcement, saying: “We’ve been working on this issue for a long time and this is great news for parents. Transportation is vitally important in a rural area like ours and we are excited to be able to eliminate fees for bussing thanks to this money from the provincial government.”Advertisement For those parents in SD 60, they will not have to pay for their kids to ride the bus anymore. In an interview with Energeticcity.ca, Bernier said that those who paid will get a refund, and those who haven’t paid yet will not have to pay.In order to be eligible, districts must submit a plan to the Ministry of Education by September 30th that outlines how the funding will be allocated. The amount of funding each school district could get is based on a formula tied to the Ministry of Education’s student location factor. Districts will also be required to report back on the outcomes and the benefits they achieved as a result of the funding.last_img read more

  • Brad Pitt compares celebrity to the outlaw life

    first_imgBrad Pitt, who plays Jesse James in his latest film, says being a celebrity in America today is not that much different from being one in the days of the legendary outlaw – then and now, all that hype. Pitt, who was at the Venice Film Festival to promote “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” has served as endless grist for the tabloid mill since he hooked up with Angelina Jolie. “People have asked me today about the celebrity angle,” the 43-year-old Pitt said, “and certainly that’s one aspect of the film – that’s not the main focus of the film.” Pitts mused that James was one of America’s biggest celebrities in his own time, “and the funny thing to me is that it doesn’t seem that different today as it was then, in the sense that a lot of it was manufactured, a lot of it was sensationalized; very little of it was based on truth and even after his death, like we just saw with Anna Nicole Smith, the melee that ensues from it.” Being a celebrity now is “really quite similar; there’s just more of it today,” Pitt said. Gere, Theron swipe at Bush Richard Gere and Charlize Theron added their voices to a chorus of stars taking swipes at the Bush administration at the Venice festival. “How did we elect Bush twice?” Gere asked rhetorically while promoting his new film, “The Hunting Party.” In the film, Gere plays a reporter determined to track down Radovan Karadzic, in hiding for more than a decade and charged with genocide and crimes against humanity in the Bosnian war. “What’s interesting to me is how do the bad people among us end up our leaders?” Gere, 58, said at a news conference. In “The Valley of Elah,” Theron plays a New Mexico detective drawn into the case of a U.S. soldier who disappears just days after returning from a tour of duty in Iraq. “The decision-making process for going into Iraq was very hastily done, and I think the facts weren’t there, and I just don’t think you go to war for those reasons,” Theron, 32, said. “I think the thing that upset me most was the manipulation that our government did toward our people, manipulating them to believe that if they weren’t for the war, they weren’t patriotic.” George Clooney has said he made “Syriana” and “Good Night, and Good Luck” out of anger at being considered a traitor for questioning the decision to go to war.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

  • Fossil Whale Already Had Echolocation

    first_img(Visited 28 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Once again, a complex trait appears fully formed and functional in the fossil record.Science Now, PhysOrg and Live Science are all telling the same story: echolocation is apparent in a fossil whale thought to be 28 million years old.  The skull of the toothed whale (drawn by an artist to resemble a dolphin or young beluga), Cotylocara has sinus cavities consistent with the location of sonar equipment in modern whales.To make this evolutionary, Live Science explains that it “pushes back the origins of the ability, called echolocation, to at least 32 million years ago“.  The spokesman adds, “It suggest echolocation evolved very, very early in the history of the group that involved toothed whales.” The words transition, link, and primitive are all absent from all three articles, indicating no precursors to this sonar-ous whale are known.It’s not enough to have a sonar organ.  Science Now asks an obvious question: “But even if Cotylocara made those sounds, could it have heard them?”  Unfortunately, the ear bones of the skull are not preserved well enough to tell.  The question points out, though, that sonar must originate as a system, with both transponder and receiver functioning, to be useful—to say nothing of the brain processing to be able to use the information.See also the 11/04/13 entry about how sonar in bats and whales is “surprisingly similar” even though the two mammals must have gained echolocation independently.  See the 6/03/10 story about how all the whales’ distinctive features would have had to evolve “in the blink of an eye.”  Back in 9/05/07, biologists were clueless about how sonar “developed” in whales, calling it a “deep question of evolution.”So what do they know?  A fossil whale probably had working sonar.  That’s it.  Do they know it was 28 million years old?  No.  Do they know sonar evolved 32 million years ago?  No.  Do they have a sequence from primitive to complex?  No.  Do they know how both the infrasound-producing organ and the ears evolved together as a system?  No.  Do they know how random mutations could produce any integrated system?  No.  Do they know anything about the evolution of whale sonar?  No.  Are they speaking off the top of their heads?  Yes.  Why?  Because everybody knows, “Evolution is a FACT!”last_img read more
