U.S. Senate could give final approval to one-week extension of federal government funding
Congressional leaders are hoping to avoid a full-year continuing resolution (CR) by passing a one-week bill. This will give the two chambers more time to negotiate a broader funding package. However, the House and Senate are still not on the same page.
The broader package will likely include a measure to increase the nation’s defense budget. This would make the current level of military spending the largest in a decade. The plan also includes billions of dollars in funding for the Ukraine.
There are several fiscal deadlines during the month of September. These measures may be the incentive that Congress needs to push through an omnibus spending bill.
The House and Senate are in the midst of a bipartisan appropriations push. The House is expected to consider a budget resolution by mid-September. The Senate is set to debate a fiscal year 2022 budget resolution. The fiscal year 2022 budget resolution includes reconciliation instructions that will guide congressional legislation later in the year.
The CR is a short-term funding bill that extends funding through December 16. The CR is designed to prevent a partial government shutdown. The CR includes $17 billion in emergency funding for the Ukraine. It also includes user fee authorities that have been extended until FY 2027. The CR also includes funds to help FEMA fight hurricanes Fiona and Ian.
The bill also includes the Inflation Reduction Act. This is a relatively new proposal that aims to help businesses and individuals withstand inflation. The measure is touted as the best deal for the taxpayer.
Senators in both parties are aghast at the inclusion of the energy plan. The plan would streamline permit approval for major energy infrastructure projects. The plan is controversial, with Republicans saying it undermines environmental laws. Some Democratic lawmakers were unhappy with the measure.
Eritrean troops “murdered” uncle in Tigray region of Ethiopia
Hundreds of Ethiopians were killed by Eritrean troops in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, a former Ethiopian minister from Tigray, has called this a war crime. He said his cousin was killed by Eritrean soldiers in the region last year. He declined to provide the name of the village. But the Crisis Evidence Lab has corroborated reports that indiscriminate shelling took place.
The Eritrean Defense Forces, part of the Tigray War, are responsible for killing civilians, looting property, and attacking private homes. The government has not commented on the matter. However, Tedros says he fears reprisal for the attack on the village.
Menelik’s forces were divided into several units and he began fighting against his rival, Ras Adal of Gojjam, in 1876. He wrote letters to European leaders to clarify his intentions. He believed that the Italians had mistranslated the treaty. In the meantime, Menelik and Shoa had extended their influence over Wollo and Begember.
Menelik’s forces fought against his rivals in Oromiya, Metema, and Gojjam. In the latter case, he negotiated a truce. He also accepted submission from various tribes. In return, he paid tribute to Ras Adal. He also agreed to defend the Orthodox Church.
In the Shoa region, Italian Fascists massacred 297 monks at Debre Libanos monastery. They also killed ten thousand people in Addis Ababa. The resulting chaos prompted Iyasu to ask for help from Eritrea. He returned to Wollo.
Kassa Hailu became a soldier and a king. He also joined Ras ‘Ali. He defeated Ras ‘Ali’s brother, Ali, in 1853. He also attacked the Egyptians in 1848. He also burned Dabra Tabor. During this time, Yohannes IV became Emperor of Ethiopia. He prohibited witchcraft, prohibited the use of alcohol, and built many churches.
Georgia’s top elections official is urging lawmakers to end general election runoffs
During a House Governmental Affairs Committee hearing, Georgia’s top elections official is urging lawmakers to ditch the general election runoff. The State of Georgia is one of only four states that require runoffs in the general election. Until 2012, the runoffs were held three weeks after the general election.
The House Governmental Affairs Committee heard from Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. He urged lawmakers to support the passage of a new law that will make no-excuse absentee voting in Georgia a thing of the past. He also called for tougher ID verification for absentee ballots. The new law will also slash the time between the general election and the runoff in half.
The House Governmental Affairs Committee was not impressed. The committee was asked to weigh in on the latest legislation. It was made up of three Democrats and six Republicans. While some of the committee’s members supported the secretary’s proposal to slash poor performing election officials, the Republicans made suggestions that would put the brakes on some of the more colorful features of the law.
The state has a few innovations in its election administration that the general public might not realize. Among them, Georgia has a few early voting options. During the midterms, the state broke an all-time early turnout record. Most counties have some kind of early voting program. The state has a robust voter registration system and offers no-excuse absentee voting.
The Department of State did not return our request for comment. The State of Georgia is a leader in election administration, and the State of Georgia has a number of ways to promote citizen participation in its elections. Its new Governor is Republican Brian Kemp. He will succeed outgoing Lieutenant Governor Burt Jones.
Models of news making
Several models of news making have been developed to explain how the news gets produced and portrayed. These include contextual and agenda-setting models. The former model considers the social, political, and economic contexts of news making, while the latter model describes the effects and mechanisms involved.
These models are generally based on the assumption that news is imbued with values, which determine the worth of a news story. These values can be defined as the “universal impulse toward story” and are used to understand the communal role of news.
Context models of news making include a wide range of factors, such as the current state of affairs, the current participants, and the participants’ social and cultural ideologies. The importance of these variables is that they define the appropriateness of news, as well as the likelihood that a story will be selected.
Ideologies can be organized into categories, such as norms, resources, or desired identity. These are the basis of the positive self-image of a group. However, classical theories of ideology never considered the relationship between discourse and communication.
These values can change over time and from place to place. This may affect the volume of messages and public opinion. Future research projects could explore the impact of user-generated content on news making. They could also examine the effect of online and mobile telephony on the news media.
Another method for determining the importance of a news event is to identify the patterns of total news coverage. This shows the journalist’s priorities. It can reveal the major topics of interest to audiences. It can also reveal the priorities of the editors. These priorities can vary from maximizing profit to shaping the public agenda.
