html模版FairTax and the power of hope7/4/2013 8:15:00 PMFairTax and the power of hope By Steve CurtisLocal columnistPsychologists will tell you that, next to love, hope is one of the most powerful emotions we have. With hope, people can endure incalculable hardship, labor ceaselessly for years with little reward, or stand firm against overwhelming odds. But, without hope, dreams die, and people no longer live, they only survive. As Helen Keller said, Nothing can be done without hope. And for decades, America was a beacon of hope for humanity around the globe. A place where mankind could realize their dreams, and anything was possible.No matter your class, your race, your station, or your past, anyone could come to America and start a new life that offered the opportunity for financial security, freedom, and success. Unlike the Old World, were the powerful preyed on the weak, and governments took what they wished from those powerless to resist, the New World offered everyone the hope of a better life, where the fruits of their labors belonged to them, and the limits of their success were set by their willingness to work,cheap Arizona Cardinals jerseys, not by bureaucratic fiat.Unfortunately, with the introduction of the progressive income tax in the early 1900s, the slow strangulation of hope in America began. As our tax code grew in complexity, intrusiveness, and magnitude, the hope of living our dreams became increasingly difficult to sustain. As the tax bureaucracy and institutions have grown in America, the New World has descended to the level of the Old.Today, everyone, immigrant or citizen, is burdened with a tax code that is impossible to understand, but for which compliance is mandatory. Everyone, immigrant or citizen, is subject to the confiscation of major portions of what they have labored so hard to earn and create. And for too many, life is no longer about grasping the dreams spawned by our hopes. Instead, life has turned into just a dreary struggle to survive under an oppressive system of onerous taxation.It has reached the point where, in some locations, the combination of federal, state, city, and local taxes can exceed 75 percent of what is earned. It has reached the point where small mistakes with regulations that can t be understood, and which the government refuses to explain, can result in thousands of dollars in fines, and years in jail. It has reached the point where ambitious entrepreneurs are told to squelch their dreams, because they will never be able to succeed under our system of taxation. It has reached the point where large corporations spend more on tax attorneys than on the scientists and engineers vital to a future with a vibrant American economy.For too many of our citizen, hope, our most powerful emotion, has been ground out by our tax system. For many living in other countries, America is now just another bureaucracy where politics is more important than hard work, and political connections mean more than ingenuity and creativity.But the FairTax could change this. Under the FairTax, we could use our 70,000 pages of income tax code for firewood. One rate, fairly applied, for everyone on all purchases of new goods and services. Under the FairTax, the IRS, an agency revealed as a cesspool of political cronyism and a tool of corrupt politicians, would be eliminated. And under the FairTax, those with initiative, dedication, skill, and the courage to take the risks of a free market would no longer be the prey of an out of control government that takes the choicest fruits of those labors, leaving the creator with only leftovers.Under the FairTax, America could once again offer the hope of a better life, free to anyone willing to work for it. Under the FairTax, America would once again be a place to which people from around the world would aspire to come to realize their dreams.The only thing standing in the way is a Congress that lacks the collective courage to stand up for the hopes of the American people, and a President who cares more about political gamesmanship and lobbyist contributions than he does about the hopes and opportunities of future generations.But hope is stronger than greed or the lust for political power, and our hopes for a better future, free of our antiquated, divisive, incomprehensible income tax code need to be brought to bear on our elected Representatives. It will require 218 member of the House, 60 members of the Senate, and one President to make the FairTax reality.

[Bearbeiten] County group looks to prevent motorcycle crashes

html模版County group looks to prevent motorcycle crashes7/9/2013 10:52:00 AMCounty group looks to prevent motorcycle crashesXENIA In light of the summer season and the increased use of motorcycles on the roadways, Greene County Safe Communities reminds motorists and motorcyclists alike to share the road conscientiously and courteously to help prevent motorcycle crashes.In addition to stressing the mutual responsibilities shared by all users of the road to prevent motorcycle crashes, Laurie Fox, Safe Communities Coordinator, said the priority for all local law enforcement agencies is to make sure motorcyclists, and drivers of all types of vehicles, are obeying state and local laws. Safety is a mutual responsibility for motorists and motorcyclists alike, said Fox. Motorcyclists are about 30 times more likely to die in a crash than passenger vehicle occupants, so whether you are driving the family sedan,wholesale nike nfl jerseys, an SUV, a school bus, a delivery van, or an 18-wheeler, drivers should always be on the lookout for motorcyclists.Drivers must be aware that a motorcycle, as one of the smallest of vehicles on the road, can be hiding in your vehicle s blind spots. Always check blind spots, use mirrors and signal before changing lanes or making turns. She added, Motorcyclists have responsibilities too. Riders should obey all traffic laws and be properly licensed, alert to other drivers, conspicuous at all times, never ride impaired or distracted, and always wear a Department of Transportation-compliant (DOT) helmet and other protective gear. This safety advice is particularly timely as motorcycle fatalities in 2011 showed a continued increase to 4,612. Motorcycle fatalities accounted for 14 percent of total highway deaths for the year despite motorcycle registrations representing only about 3 percent of all vehicles in the U.S. Ms. Fox offered the following tips for drivers to help keep motorcyclists safe on our roadways. Remember, a motorcycle is a vehicle with all of the rights and privileges of any other motor vehicle. The person under that helmet could be a mother, brother, doctor, or friend; Always allow a motorcyclist the full lane width never try to share a lane; Perform a regular visual check for motorcycles by checking mirrors and blind spots before entering or exiting a lane of traffic, and at intersections; Always signal your intentions before changing lanes or merging with traffic; Don t be fooled by a flashing turn signal on a motorcycle motorcycle signals are often not self-canceling and riders sometimes forget to turn them off. Wait to be sure the motorcycle is going to turn before you proceed; Allow more following distance - three or four seconds - when behind a motorcycle to give the motorcyclist time to maneuver around obstacles in the roadway,Lisicki et Bartoli portée Wimbledon final 0, or stop in an emergency; Never ride distracted.Fox said motorcyclists can increase their safety by: Wearing a DOT-compliant helmet; Using turn signals for every turn or lane change, even if the rider thinks no one will see it; Signaling intentions by combining hand signals and turn signals to draw more attention to themselves; Wearing brightly colored protective gear, and using reflective tape and stickers to increase conspicuity; Positioning themselves in the lane where they will be most visible to other drivers; and Never riding while impaired. Our message to all drivers and motorcyclists is: Help to share in the responsibility of keeping all road users safe, and do your part by safely sharing the road, Fox concluded.For additional information on motorcycle safety,cheap Arizona Cardinals jerseys, visit http://www.nhtsa.gov/Safety/Motorcycles.

[Bearbeiten] Language & Style

LAST week, before we were cut short by space, that precious commodity whose restraining influence every editor and every journalistic writer struggles endlessly with, we were straining to differentiate the usage and meaning of the words troupe and troop. Here is last week’s Sample 3 which, for convenience of reference, is today re-presented as Sample 1.

Sample 1: “Both the mother and the grandmother of the deceased boy were short of words when their comments on the death of the boy were sought.

They wore mournful looks with tears trickling down their cheeks as sympathizers trouped into their home to condole them.”(How 6-Month-Old Baby Was Burnt to Death in Osun, the Sunday Sun, July 21, 2013)

We are drawing readers’ attention,Why Audiences, And Actors, Should Embrace Video On Demand, as we did last week,Nike St. Louis Rams jerseys, to the word trouped which occurs in the context, “as sympathizers trouped into their home.” To appreciate today’s follow-up to last week’s discussion, it may be necessary re-present the points we made last Sunday: An instance of malapropism based on mistaken identity involving spelling, and grievous semantic incompetence, the word trouped has been selected instead of trooped. Is there any difference between troupe and troop? Yes, very important difference, of course.

First, at the syntactic level, although it can also be used as a verb in a very technical sense, the more common usage of the word troupe involves its usage as a noun; the word troop, on the other hand, is often used both as a verb and as a noun. It is at the level of meaning and usage that we have more serious distinctions to make.

Now, the noun troupe is used to denote a group of actors, dancers or singers who perform together, moving from one place to the other. Please read the following sentences: 1)Led by a veteran musician, dynamic and entertaining, the troupe treated us to a thrilling performance that I had never seen in the last two decades. 2)In spite of its great performaces, the troupe always faces the problem of insufficient funding. 3)As the leader of our school’s cultural troupe, it was my duty to ensure that every performance was successfully carried out. 4)As a Youth Corps member, I organized a cultural troupe for the school where I carried out my primary assignment, a troupe, I’m told, is still active till today. 5)The dancing troupe is made up of ladies only as dancers and men as drummers. 6)The NTA troupe performs only during festive seasons.

As we have noted, the verb form of the word troupe is very rare except in its very technical or professional sense. Here are examples of its usage in the verb form: 1)Hubert Ogunde was said to have trouped his plays to such distant places as the northern Nigeria. 2)The pioneer travelling actors like Oyin Adejobi trouped their performances all over the country, not because of the money they made from the performances, but because of the fulfilment they gave them. 3)To troupe plays requires considerable effort and dedication.

The word troop basically denotes a group of soldiers. It can be used in its singular or plural form. Let’s read the following sentences: 1)The Federal Government has deployed troops in the troubled states of the North East of Nigeria. 2)Now that peace is returning to the war-torn country, the foreign troops are being withdrawn. 3)The troops are on their way to Somalia on a peace-keeping mission. 4)Brigadier Taiye Ojopagogo is leading a troop to the zone to assist in quelling the civil unrest that is beyond the capacity of the police. 5)Member nations of the African Union have agreed to contribute troops towards restoring peace to a region that has been ravaged by war. 6)During the civil war, the Federal troops were said to have committed all sorts of atrocities, including rapes.

We have used the word troop as a noun in each of those sentences, and the sense has been that of soldiers in or ready for action.

But the noun can also refer to a group of people, non-soldiers moving to a place. Now read the following sentences: 1)We met a troop of young boys poaching animals and having fun. 2)There they were, a troop of angry, tired and frustrated retirees, seeking sympathy and justice. 3)We were distracted by the chatter of a troop of schoolchildren on their way to the football field. 4)It all happened in the middle of the dry season when troops of women went to distant places in search of water. 5)The advertisement displayed in front of the building attracted a troop of job seekers, anxious and desperate, shouting themselves hoarse. 6)We saw a troop of tenants marching to the police station to report the misconduct of their landlord.

Each of the six sentences demonstrates the usage of the noun troop in its figurative sense. But the figurative sense can also used in the verb form.

Let’s consider the following sentences: 1)The villagers trooped out to see the white men who were visiting the palace. 2)Almost the entire town trooped out to welcome the president. 3)After the football match, spectators trooped into streets, leading to a terrible traffic jam. 4)The masses have been advised to troop out on the day of the election and vote for the candidate of their choice. 5) I expect the box office takings to be in hundreds of thousands in view of the rate at which spectators trooped into the cinema. 6)In those days when public execution of armed robbers was common, members of the public could be seen trooping out to watch the gory sights. 7)Following the series of armed robbery attacks, members trooped into the meeting called to discuss security issues. 8)It was the closing time and students trooped out of the school compound.

Of course, the word trooped should replace trouped in the context under examination.

Sample 2: “The controversy over the mass and secrete deportation of Nigerians in Kenya continued at the weekend as the Association of Nigerians in Kenya(ANK) has accused the Nigerian Ambassador to that country, Solomon Oyeteru, of being miserly with the truth in his account of the situation in Kenya...He stated that many more Nigerians were affected in the deportation, adding that after the Sunday Sun publication on the issue that generated media controversy in Kenya, security agents changed strategy and have been detaining Nigerians at different secret detention camps across the country...He told Sunday Sun that the association planned to write a strong-worded Save Our Soul (SOS) to President Jonathan...”(Nigerians in Kenya to Ambassador: You Lied, the Sunday Sun, June 23, 2013)

Two forms are of interest to us, secrete and secret, which occur in the following contexts respectively: “The mass and secrete deportation of Nigerians in Kenya” and “have been detaining Nigerians at different secret detention camps”. The similarities between the two forms are immediately striking, each as an adjective occurring immediately before a noun: secrete deportation and secret detention. The general context, in addition to the syntactic intimation, points inexorably to the fact that the two lexemes are semantically identical.

Are we talking about a single word occurring twice in different forms? Are secrete and secret two different forms of the same word? There can be no doubt about the fact that the repoter has presented two forms of the same word. How come? Why? Either he believes sincerely that these are variants of the same word or he is not quite sure of how to spell the word he has in mind, the word his context requires.

We have repeatedly in this place drawn attention to the sophistication to the point of complication and confusion of the English spelling system. A single letter, we have seen, present or absent in this or that position, can in many instances make the difference between two words,New England Patriots jerseys cheap sale, separated by a lorry load of meaning. To that extent, ability to spell correctly constitutes a signficant aspect of that value called literacy. The largely erratic English spelling system can be a vexatious thorn in the side of incurable bad spellers like me. So what? If ability to spell correctly is universally regarded as an important component of effective literacy, then I must strive to spell satisfactorily if I want to be counted among the literate people of the English-speaking world.
