Supreme Court Allows Broad Enforcement of Asylum Limits

first_imgThe U.S. Supreme Court will allow the federal government to enforce its new asylum rules. Under the new requirements, people seeking asylum need to do so in a third country.That would block immigrants from Central and South America from seeking asylum at the southern border of the U.S.The high court said the administration could enforce the new rule while it’s challenged in court.Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote a scathing dissent after the Supreme Court approved President Donald Trump’s request to allow his administration to enforce its new aggressive asylum rules.Out of the four liberal justices sitting on the Supreme Court, Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg were the only judges to dissent.“Once again the Executive Branch has issued a rule that seeks to upend longstanding practices regarding refugees who seek shelter from persecution,” Sotomayor wrote in her dissenting opinion. “Although this Nation has long kept its doors open to refugees — and although the stakes for asylum seekers could not be higher — the Government implemented its rule without first providing the public notice and inviting the public input generally required by law.”last_img read more

Downtown Brown passes USO past Brashear

first_img In Spain the running of the bulls is popular but the Eagles found that flying over the Bulls to be most effective.Currently USO (University Prep, Sci-Tech, Obama Academy)  is considered the best in the City League and proved that against Brashear.  In a 51-6 win over the Bulls, Ronald Brown completed 28 aerials for 343 yards and 5 touchdowns last week at Cupples Stadium to improve to 4-0.  Although, Brashear fell to 1-3, the game was much closer than the score.In the first quarter 290-pound, two-way tackle Jordan Mabin was playing like a man possessed and Brashear held the Eagles scoreless in the first quarter.  However, Mabin suffered a high-ankle sprain on the final play of the quarter and the Eagles took advantage of his absence and two plays later Brown hit Nicholas Stallworth for a 65-yard touchdown and the rout was on.During his debut as USO’s quarterback, Brown completed passes for a western, Pennsylvania record 468 yards against Shenandoah Valley and he broke his own record by passing for 525 yards and seven scoring strikes in University Prep’s victory, 52-21, against Carrick.In four victories, everything is going as expected for Brown and the Eagles.  In filling the vacancy caused by Akil Young’s matriculation to college football, Brown has completed 89 of 133 passes for 1,680 yards and 23 touchdowns.  Currently, he ranks No. 1 in the City, WPIAL and State in passing.But, Brown has also honed his skills and mobility, in part to his early participation in the Homewood and Brushton Youth Football Association.“Ron has all the tools.  His strength is his arm,” said Homewood Mighty Mites coach Kedric Starkey.  “I knew he was a special back then.  In a game against Lincoln we were down by five late in the game and he asked the coaches to put the ball in his hands.  He took us 90 yards in seven straight passes to get us into the end zone.  That’s when I knew how good this kid was.”His ability enhances his wide receivers.  For example, against the Shenandoah Valley, Marcus Johnson caught five passes for 265 yards.  While team objectives come first, Brown, who is only 5-foot-9, 150-pound junior, and Johnson, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound senior, understands that winning is critical to their personal success, too.  Johnson is a potential Division I prospect.  Hampton University made an offer and Pitt, Temple, Bowling Green and Toledo has expressed some interest.  But what about “Downtown” Brown?“There’s so much talent in the City League, but they often get passed over by recruiters because of their off-the-field antics and behavior.We as a staff are committed to helping these young men carry themselves in a respectable manner while teaching a little football as well,” said former Pittsburgh Steelers and current USO’s Defensive Coach Mike Logan.  “Ronald Brown makes it easy to coach when his football IQ is on point. He understands what we are trying to do.  If he was over 6’0 he would be a top prospect!”Brown’s other touchdowns went to Clay Moorefield (7 yards), Stephon Hawthorne (44 yards) and Marcus Johnson (20 and 30 yards).  Stallworth also returned an interception 41 yards for a touchdown.Quarterback Angelo Reed ran 11 yards for Brashear’s only touchdown.USO will look for win No. 4 in the City League showdown when they battle Allderdice on Oct. 4 at Cupples Stadium Follow @NewPghCourier on Twitter  https://twitter.com/NewPghCourierLike us at https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Pittsburgh-Courier/143866755628836?ref=hlDownload our mobile app at http://www.appshopper.com/news/new-pittsburgh-courier RONALD BROWN passed for 343 yards and 5 touchdowns in leading USO over Brashear.

A Canadian Editor Questions Passivhaus Dogma

first_img Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details. Today’s brief blog — a departure from my usual practice of writing in-depth articles — was inspired by a recent editorial by Richard Kadulski, the editor of a Canadian newsletter called Solplan Review.In the March 2014 issue, Kadulski wrote, “I have had discussions with some designers and builders that have set out to build in accordance with Passive House principles. When I questioned them, and suggested alternatives that might be easier to build or be more economic, the answer invariably comes back that it’s not an acceptable Passive House detail.“If Passive House has laid it out, it’s the gospel, and don’t bother with anything else. And don’t bother questioning whatever quirks have been built into the criteria or the software because it cannot be challenged.“Like converts to a new religion, they seem to lose sight that there are many ways of achieving high-performance, sustainable building.“If we’re going to make progress to achieve truly efficient, sustainable and net-zero construction buildings, we need to be able to entertain new ideas and take advantage of new tools and materials. It’s great to get enthusiastic buy-in from new participants who will champion the cause — these are vital to help spread the word. But we need to be careful not create a new religion with a set of dogmas that cannot be challenged.”Any group that sets out to write a standard has to address the inevitable tension between rigor and flexibility. Almost by definition, rigorous standards tend to be inflexible.Some standards are prescriptive standards — that is, they tell builders exactly what they need to do, step by step — while other standards are performance standards — that is, they set goals that builders much achieve without telling them how to get there.The Passivhaus standard is a… Start Free Trial Already a member?
