That Democrats had a gun to his head with their threat to have a floor vote on Greene’s committee assignments probably made it more politically difficult for Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to act on his own. He did seek a deal with the Democrats to take her off the House Committee on Education and Labor and the Budget Committee and instead relegate her to the Small Business Committee. When Democrats didn’t bite, McCarthy again condemned her past comments and wrung an expression of regret from her in an internal GOP meeting earlier in the week that she repeated on the House floor on Thursday.
We feel it is completely unacceptable that you, our newly elected senator, would align yourself with the likes of anti immigrant Sens. Todd Young and Tom Cotton over the hundreds of thousands of Coloradans who support and value the contributions of our immigrant neighbors. Voters elected you to be a more progressive legislator..
When mayoral candidate Pat Dando listed herself as Patricia Dando on her ballot statement, political strategists immediately knew what she was up to: Dando wanted everyone to know who’s wearing the skirts in this race. But what’s up with the Dando campaign’s insistence on calling her opponent Ronald Gonzales instead of Ron? Dando’s campaign brochures and her first television ad make repeated references to Ronald. “It’s his name,” explains Dando’s campaign buddy Erik Schoennauer, “just like Patricia is her name.” Somehow, that explanation sounds too simple and innocuous for such a calculated political campaign.
Why did you want to own a coffee shop? You could have started anything, why coffee? Why? Because of the community; because of what it would represent, bringing people together. I’ve always said to any staff member that I’ve ever hired that our team has an inclusive environment. Like when people come in, I want them to be welcomed with a smile, even if you’re busy doing something, you can still acknowledge the person.
This year the Madison Community has had intense and difficult conversations about the role of police in our City, public safety and more fundamentally, how we live together as neighbors. The frequency of these events has pushed many of us far outside our comfort zone with significant impact across, cultural, racial, class and socio economic platforms. Added to this often disturbing debate is the alarming rise of violent crime, racial disparities.
Experience of extreme positive mood state, as measured by the Mood Disorder Questionnaire, was found to relate to increased trait impulsivity and elevated engagement in a range of impulsive behaviour. A structural equation model demonstrated that impulsivity could be separated into cognitive and affective components, with affective impulsivity a key predictor of impulsive behaviour. Affective impulsivity was also shown to moderate the relationship between extreme mood experience and impulsive behaviour.The second study, found in Chapter Seven, used semi structured interviews and thematic analysis to develop an understanding of the individual’s experience of impulsivity and impulsive behaviour.
