Sandy Springs Braces for Braves Traffic Impact

first_img ‘It’s Fractured’: Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan On Healing Republican Party The Atlanta Braves play the first game in their new stadium Friday, and the City of Sandy Springs will be paying close attention to how traffic flows to SunTrust Park. The stadium sits in Cobb County, but Sandy Springs is just over the nearby Fulton County line.Like us on FacebookSandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul said the city already has more than 30 electronic counters out measuring traffic in the area to get benchmark reading. Once the season starts, “We’ll continue doing the testing both while they’re in at home playing and when they’re away so we can kind of figure out how much real impact the Braves traffic really does have on our community,” Paul said.Last year, Cobb County put out a game-day plan that routed a lot of the traffic through Sandy Springs. That did not sit well with Mayor Paul, and there were hastily-called meetings to smooth things over.No matter the recommended route to SunTrust Park, Paul still anticipates more traffic, and that could mean more of his city’s resources have to be devoted to helping people get to the ballpark.“If we need to be compensated for our services, it’s not going to come through any taxes or revenues that the Braves generate in Sandy Springs,” Paul said. “So we’ll have to have that conversation.”The team scheduled its latest transportation update for Monday morning.The Braves will face the New York Yankees in an exhibition game Friday. It starts at 7:35 p.m. The first regular home game is April 14.

Free Online Course: The Fascination of Crystals and Symmetry

first_img ← Get Involved with Asia’s First Youth-led Public Policy Think Tank! Share 0 Deadline: ongoingOpen to: students worldwide with basic knowledge in ChemistryVenue: on-lineDescriptionRubies, sugar, snowflakes: crystals are beauty, arranged in grid structures. This MOOC explains the basic building blocks of crystals, their symmetrical structure and introduces free software for crystal structure exploring.In this course, iversity provides you with a basic introduction into crystallography. The focus is placed upon the symmetry elements, which occur in crystals. The arrangement of the atoms inside the crystal needs a more detailed description than the overall shape of the crystal (morphology). The course will show you how symmetry is classified in a hierarchical way. Iversity wants their students to gain the ability to discover symmetry on their own.At the end of the course you will:be aware of the similarities between the patterns on wallpaper and the structures of crystals;be able to classify the innumerable appearances of crystals into the seven different crystal systems;know how to find crystallographic data and how to analyze it regarding symmetry;understand the description of infinite framework structures (i.e. MOFs) via a topology approach;understand the relationship between the structure and the properties of a material. Ex.: Why is diamond so hard and the explanation of phenomena such as ferroelectricity?EligibilityThe course is available to students of all countries worldwide who have basic knowledge in Chemistry (atoms, simple molecules).The course will take approx. 3 hours per week.How to enroll?It is free for you to enroll on this online course.

President Patrick Yoes: With Great Regret And First Time In History National Peace Officers Memorial Service To Honor Sacrifices Of Fallen Heroes Canceled

first_imgThe 2020 National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service is canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Courtesy image NATIONAL PEACE OFFICERS’ MEMORIAL SERVICE News:By President Patrick Yoes  National Fraternal Order of PoliceIt is with great regret that, for the first time in the event’s history, the Fraternal Order of Police and its Auxiliary will be unable to host the Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service in Washington, D.C. due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This decision was a difficult one, but we believe it is the right one. We are consulting with the Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) and other stakeholder groups to develop a fitting tribute to honor the families of the fallen for the 2019 calendar year and will determine the best path forward after this crisis subsides. The National FOP and the Memorial Committee will undertake an effort to have a meaningful and respectful media tribute to our fallen heroes May 15, National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day. I am saddened that we cannot come together this year to grieve with our survivor families and draw strength from one another on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol, but given the national crisis we must, as we always have, put the safety of the public first. When our nation recovers from this pandemic, we are committed to working with the various stakeholders to determine how to best provide families and colleagues who have lost their loved ones in the line of duty the opportunity to honor the sacrifices made by our fallen heroes in the way we have done over the last 39 years.last_img read more

Civil Justice Council opts against mandatory ADR

first_imgEtherton: ‘impressive report’Source: PhotoshotThe Master of the Rolls and chairman of the CJC, Sir Terence Etherton, said: ’The working group is to be commended on producing an impressive report that proposes a number of reforms to the current system. Work has already commenced on the creation of the judicial-ADR liaison committee, which will play an important oversight role in the area.’Chair of the working group, William Wood QC said: ‘We have done our best to set out what seem to us the most promising options for the future. We are particularly pleased that our proposal for continuing liaison between judges and ADR professionals is already being acted upon by the Master of the Rolls.’ The Civil Justice Council (CJC) has stopped short of recommending a ’presumption’ that parties will agree to alternative dispute resolution (ADR) as a condition for issuing proceedings – but said it is committed to promoting alternatives to litigation.A working group of the CJC said today it would focus on promoting awareness, availability and encouragement of ADR.The working group had previously said there should be a presumption that in most cases, if parties have not been able to settle a case by the directions stage, they should be required to bring forward proposals for engaging in some form of ADR. The Law Society warned that imposing a requirement of mandatory ADR would ‘frustrate the principle’ that litigants should have unimpeded access to the courts.The CJC had invited submissions on the future role of mediation and how rule-makers can encourage greater use of the method. It published its recommendations today.The CJC said it aims to create a system where citizens are aware that when civil disputes arise there are alternatives to the choice of ‘capitulation or litigation’.According to the council its aims will include encouraging a court to promote the use of ADR to the extent that they [courts] would ’sanction those who did not agree to take reasonable steps toward settlement and reasonable steps towards the use of ADR.’To increase awareness the ‘ADR community’ should continue to promote alternatives and create a website with information about types of dispute resolution available.Parties should also be given an acceptable mechanism under which a mediation could be triggered without the intervention of the court, the working group said. It highlighted the ‘Notice to Mediate’ system used in British Columbia, Canada, as the ‘first step in this direction’.The working group also suggested the formation of a permanent specialist liaison committee on ADR. ‘We think that ADR professionals and judges need to talk on a regular basis. Stakeholders need a forum in which the role of ADR in a rapidly changing civil justice landscape can be monitored and supported on an informed basis,’ the group said.Deputy District Judge Peter Causton, who runs the Manchester County Court Mediation Pilot and is a civil and commercial mediator, said of the report: ‘It stops short of radical change as it shies away from compulsory mediation, but it does make some sensible suggestions as to how ADR could be encouraged and proposes introducing a notice to mediate procedure with a list of court appointed mediators. This reflects what we are seeing in practice – practitioners recognise the positive role ADR/mediation can play in resolving disputes at an early stage and allows litigants to control costs.’last_img read more
