The addition is part of the SCA and DOE’s commitment to address new seat demand in District 11 as a result of various redevelopment projects in the area.

The addition will also include a gymatorium, music room, art room, library, and a new student cafeteria.

Editorial

You should know that a Monmouth National Poll shows that 80% of the U.S. population favor voter ID laws and that 70% favor voting in person. It is important that you know that “The for the People Act 2021” known as the (HR1) legislative bill passed in the House of Representatives. All the Democrats voted in favor of it, except one. You should also know that HR1 would do away with all voter ID law requirements, among other drastic changes to our nation’s voting process.

Too often we hear a lot about how to require voters to present an ID card at their polling site is a form of voter suppression. Therefore, requiring a voter ID is somehow racist, because it is geared toward preventing people of color from voting.

Frankly this argument does not hold water. First, because it implies that people of color do not possess ID cards, and as result cannot exercise their right to vote. Therefore, a law that requires the voter to present an ID is racist. To hear this argument, you would think that people of color are living under a rock.

I have often wondered how this is possible. How are voter ID laws racist? Upon analyzing this issue, I found that their argument is in fact quite racist for the following reasons. First it implies that people of color are either too lazy, or too ignorant to acquire an ID card. That we as people of color lack the ability to get something as simple as an ID card or cannot even follow voter instructions.

Then I asked myself if everyone is required to show and ID card when boarding a plane, or when cashing a check, or when applying for a bank loan, or when driving a car, or when opening a bank account, or when entering a government building, or when registering at a college, or going into a hospital or clinic, or even to enter a restaurant to have a decent meal we are required to show an ID, that proves we have been vaccinated, otherwise…

Where are we now?

There are exciting times ahead for the city that never sleeps. Changes to gambling laws mean that, with a favorable wind, New Yorkers will be able to place online bets on the Super Bowl 2022. Many people would say that it is high time New York caught up, after all, online legal gambling has been around for a few years now and it’s not like New York to be behind the times.

Where is gambling currently legal?

As of today, mobile casino and poker gambling are legal in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and West Virginia. The most recent addition offering online wagering in October this year was Connecticut. Nevada and Delaware allow online poker. Mobile sports betting is also available in those three states apart from Delaware together with Illinois, Virginia, Colorado, Tennessee, and Indiana, Iowa, New Hampshire, Oregon, Rhode Island, Montana, Wyoming, and Arizona. As you can see it is still only a minority of states that approve it, so while New York isn’t leading the pack, it’s certainly up there amongst the front runners when it comes to online gambling. It will be interesting to see if Maryland, Louisiana, or New York will be the next to cross the line and get mobile sports betting up and running.

It was back in 2013 that the first brick-and-mortar casinos were legalized in New York state. Sports betting followed in 2019 after the Supreme Court ruling which overturned the 1992 rule which had banned it. This meant that it was up to individual states to determine what gambling was and was not permissible in their jurisdiction. Then, departing Governor Andrew Cuomo started the…

The journey of women in Australian horse racing has not been an easy one. From the mid-70s when women were first allowed to compete in Australian horse racing to the success of Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to win the esteemed Melbourne Cup in 2015, the rise of the female jockey has been a slow and steady progression in the world of Australian horse racing.
