Young man haulin’ the mail!
Derek Onserio, a senior at Providence Academy in Plymouth, was accepted to eight Ivy Laegue schools. Onserio has four siblings, two of which also attend Ivy League schools. He is the son of Kenyan immigrants.
You go boy!
In short – virtually none.
The budget proposal Trump delivered did call for a reduction in the money that eventually makes its way to Meals on Wheels.
Here is the impact in Wake County:
A spokesperson for the administration said federal dollars only account for about 3 percent of funding for Meals on Wheels.
“For every dollar in public funding that we get from the federal, state and county government, we do raise about $2,” said Alan Winstead with Wake Meals on Wheels.
I get the idea that a ‘compassionate society’ doesn’t neglect the most at risk and vulnerable. And I agree that a society Ought care for its own. However, the nobility earned by such a sentiment is lost when such care is obtained by force.
Much better this:
Winstead said even though the official impact of the budget cuts on Meals on Wheels is unclear, they are using the time to advocate and raise money for the program.
All of this doesn’t even mention the staggering fact that an organization can’t increase efficiency by 3%.
If I were in position to craft state law here in Raleigh, my response to the NCAA and their ban on NC* would be this:
Simply restrict restroom and locker room access in the exact same manner as the NCAA restricts access to sporting teams in their leagues:
The following policies clarify participation of transgender student-athletes undergoing hormonal treatment for gender transition:
1. A trans male (FTM) student-athlete who has received a medical exception for treatment with testosterone for diagnosed Gender Identity Disorder or gender dysphoria and/or Transsexualism, for purposes of NCAA competition may compete on a men’s team, but is no longer eligible to compete on a women’s team without changing that team status to a mixed team.
2. A trans female (MTF) student-athlete being treated with testosterone suppression medication for Gender Identity Disorder or gender dysphoria and/or Transsexualism, for the purposes of NCAA competition may continue to compete on a men’s team but may not compete on a women’s team without changing it to a mixed team status until completing one calendar year of testosterone suppression treatment.
Any transgender student-athlete who is not taking hormone treatment related to gender transition may participate in sex-separated sports activities in accordance with his or her assigned birth gender.
A trans male (FTM) student-athlete who is not taking testosterone related to gender transition may participate on a men’s or women’s team.
A trans female (MTF) transgender student-athlete who is not taking hormone treatments related to gender transition may not compete on a women’s team.
The NCAA itself discriminates based on gender. FURTHER, the organization differentiates between MTF and FTM.
Opposition to HB2 indeed.
