Breaking News: Rep. Steve Scalise shot in Virginia

first_img I was so thankful that a warship has been named in honor of former Congress woman, Gabby Giffords as she is such a wonderful inspiration for people who have endured tough struggles to survive and flourish. She is amazing. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply According to both congressional and law enforcement sources, the shooting appears to be a “deliberate attack.”Alexandria police said earlier Wednesday they were responding to a “multiple shooting” in the city. A tweet also said the suspect is in custody “and not a threat.” CNN has reached out to Capitol Hill police for details.The President is monitoring the situation, the White House said in a statement.“The Vice President and I are aware of the shooting incident in Virginia and are monitoring developments closely,” President Donald Trump said in a statement. “We are deeply saddened by this tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the members of Congress, their staffs, Capitol Police, first responders, and all others affected.”Brooks said there were a number of congressmen and congressional staffers lying on the ground, and at least one of them was wounded. The Alabama Republican said he used his belt as a tourniquet to help one of the victims.He said the shooter appeared to be a white male but added that “I saw him for a second or two.” He said the shooter was behind the third base dugout and didn’t say anything.“The gun was a semiautomatic,” Brooks said, adding that he was sure it was a rifle but unsure what kind. “It continued to fire at different people. You can imagine, all the people on the field scatter.”Scalise is the first member of Congress to be shot since former Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords was shot in January 2011. Giffords was shot in the head by Jared Lee Loughner at a “Congress On Your Corner” event at a Tucson grocery store. Giffords, who authorities said was the main target of the shooting, survived the attack but six others were killed and an additional 12 were injured.Loughner pleaded guilty in 2012 and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.This story is breaking and will be updated. Mama Mia Mama Mia I hope this fellow, Congressman Steve Scalise, will survive, and be okay too. 3 COMMENTS The Anatomy of Fear Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate June 18, 2017 at 12:54 pm Breaking News from Alexandria, VAMultiple people shot including law enforcement officersFrom CNN Rep.

I had never heard of it, but of course, I don’t keep up with sports, so I asked my husband if he had heard of this annual game between the Republican and Democrat members of Congress, and he had not heard of it…..so, how did the shooter know about it, is what I thought?

The policy applies to not only traditional classes, but also online classes. These classes will utilize only open educational resources (OER) available for free online.The bill was established to make achieving an education easier for students who find difficulty in affording textbooks.A study done by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (PIRG) concluded that prices of textbooks have risen because authors are releasing newer editions and combining editions with software. The higher costs deter students away from purchasing the books, even though students know doing this could hurt their progress. 65 percent of students chose not to buy the books because the price was too high, according to the U.S. PIRG.“It is important that students’ costs don’t get out of control,” PCC chemistry professor Jared Ashcroft told the Courier about the program. “A survey of students in my class had 29/29 [students] say they prefer the ZCT [Zero-Cost Textbook].Using the OER textbook does not change my class curriculum at all.”Professor of psychology Jennifer Fiebig said using an OER (Open Educational Resources) textbook “has definitely changed the way I organize and teach a class.” Fiebig said.Fiebig expressed the issues that can arise with traditional textbooks.“Inevitably, there were problems, resulting from the bookstore running out of textbooks, books from online vendors like Amazon having backorders, to students waiting until their financial aid check arrived before they could afford to purchase the textbook,” Fiebig said in the Courier interview. “Now, I can start my assignments immediately and basically ‘hit the ground running.’ I truly appreciate this aspect of using OER textbooks as it levels the playing field and it provides all students with the same opportunity to succeed from the first day.” Community Newscenter_img faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Education PCC Offers Zero-Cost Textbook Classes This Semester From STAFF REPORTS Published on Monday, January 8, 2018 | 6:40 pm First Heatwave Expected Next Week EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Subscribe Business News Your email address will not be published.
