Duke Student Group Develops Plan to Beautify Durham, NC
The nonprofit Keep Durham Beautiful does exactly what their name implies in Durham, N.C. Trouble is, they are a small organization and they needed some help to make sure they were effectively tracking impact. They turned to a volunteer student group out of Duke University, the Duke Interdisciplinary Social Innovators (DISI) for help. The DISI team includes students from the Sanford School of Public Policy, Fuqua School of Business and the Pratt School of Engineering. DISI is a model of innovation and community service, and is entirely run by students.

The $362.5 million spending plan includes a 0.56-cent property tax increase per $100 of assessed value, increasing the total property tax rate to 55.75 cents per $100 of assessed value. This tax rate increase on a house valued at $150,000 increases the annual tax bill by $8.40.

For more information about the 2011-2012 budget, visit www.DurhamNC.gov/Departments/BMS/1112_budget/1112_budget_singlefile.pdf. City Council Renews Contract with Downtown Durham, Inc. The City is extending its economic development relationship with Downtown Durham, Inc. (DDI). This will be the fifth year that the organization has provided a variety of services to the City -- all geared toward spurring economic revitalization in downtown. The contract with DDI over the next year is for $148,048. DDI President Bill Kalkhof explains what the organization accomplished last year and what its goals are for the year ahead on the upcoming episode of "City Hall This Week." Durham Parks and Recreation and Schools to Share Facilities at No Extra Cost An interlocal agreement between Durham Parks and Recreation and Durham Public Schools will make it possible for them to rent each other's facilities without having to pay. Up until now, they both have spent close to $20,000 a year renting each other's facilities. The schools primarily rent swimming pools for their high school teams and tennis courts for middle schools without their own courts. Durham Parks and Recreation primarily rents gymnasiums at the schools. The goal of the agreement is to prevent the need of one public agency paying to use the facility of another public agency when their missions overlap. Other interviews featured on upcoming episode of "City Hall This Week": • Human Resources Director Alethea Bell -- Explains how a new job texting service offered by the City will work. • Assistant Stormwater Manager Paul Wiebke -- Explains what is being done to expedite the re-routing of a failing drainage system underneath Nana's Restaurant and the Rockwood Building. • Durham Parks and Recreation Staff and Elected Leaders -- Offer a look at why the new Discovery High Ropes Course has placed Durham in a league of its own for recreation opportunities in the Triangle.

Summer Schedule | Muslim Homeschooling Mom of Four
Ever wonder what a day looks like when you're planning for guests? Extra cleaning? Check. Last minute mid-week shopping trip? Check. Occasionally bickering amongst the children? Check. Time slipping away? Check. Today I take you on another day in the life of this homeschooling mama of four kids. But wait, you only see three? Yep, one is missing. He's on a job internship in northern California for the summer of 2018. He'll be back home in time to finish his last two quarters of university, InshaAllah. Do you struggle with making phone calls? It's one of the most challenging things for me. My phone is always on Do Not Disturb, so I don't even hear notifications and that's just the way I like it. Does it mean I sometimes miss a call or text. Yeah. Today, I tackle four phone call! Yes, that makes me feel accomplished. I know it's silly, but for those of your who struggle with making calls, I feel you! If you are new to my channel or if you are unfamiliar with the Muslim religion, here are a couple of terms that may help you. You can find more in the description box to my last Day in the Life video: https://youtu.be/aHh15k9sLD0 Alhumdulillah -All Praises are due to Allah (God) SubhanaAllah- Glory be to Allah (God) Yarhamakula- What you say when someone sneezes Bismillah- In the Name of Allah I'm fasting today because I'm fasting the six recommended days in the month that follows Ramadan. We did a fair amount of cooking today. We had guests over this evening. My kids had several friends and all their moms came too. We cooked, cleaned and shopped and even tried to fit in a homeschool lesson. We didn't get to the homeschool lesson, but we got to it the following day. You can check them out here: https://youtu.be/rsr1OcVXIGM https://youtu.be/BuxoV3Yh0yA While I cooked the meal for our friends and family, the kids helped with the chores. They always do. They are helpful and it would be impossible for one person to do it all. When preparing for guests, we all pitch in and help. To make it more enjoyable while they are doing chores, they listen to music. Otherwise they are listening to audio books during the summer. This is a summer schedule...almost. We are still fitting in a lesson here and there, but we are mostly on a summer schedule which means more free time and more friend time. Having friends over is a joy for my kids and me and feeding those guests is also a joy. For the recipes from this video, you can check out these tutorials: Scones: https://youtu.be/a0rraDry-7Q Salad: https://youtu.be/tNtGu29MqS4 Pizza: https://youtu.be/frw9OTowtc4 Complete cooking tutorials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rm7fKOwkuAU&list=PLJxUV0rOnlxxQhSoFTjKOEEsrDSSMTHkv If you want to see my complete family cookbook and download it for free, you can sign up for my mailing list (I don't spam, and really, I hardly email!), and you'll be given a link to download the cookbook.

City Hall This Week Ep. 117
DURHAM, N.C. -- The following highlights from the May 2, 2011 Durham City Council meeting and other topics of interest will be featured in this episode of "City Hall This Week." The show will also be available to watch on demand at www.DurhamNC.gov/DTV8/CityHallThisWeek.cfm. Important Developments for Southside Redevelopment Project The City Council took action on two important issues regarding the Southside Redevelopment Project. It approved a conditional commitment of $5,486,468 in subordinate financing for a rental development consisting of 119 mix-income units and 13 live-work units. It also approved a conditional commitment of $3,887,410 to fund the associated site preparation and infrastructure improvements needed for the project. The commitments were needed for the City's application for additional financing from the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency. The other important development for the project involves the Council's approval of a $138,500 contract with the Center for Community Self-Help. The organization will use the federal housing money to fund homeownership architectural and engineering services in the Southside neighborhood. Community Development Department Assistant Director Larry Jarvis explains why these developments are so important for the future success of the project on this episode of "City Hall This Week." City Council Approves FY 2011-2012 Annual Action Plan The City's FY 2011-2012 Annual Action Plan is now on its way to the federal government for approval. The plan serves as the City's application for federal housing funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This year's plan, as approved by the City Council, would give partial or full funding to some of the organizations requesting money, while using approximately a third of the money to support various aspects of the Southside Redevelopment Project. The Annual Action Plan specifies how Community Development Block Grant, Home Investment Partnership, Emergency Shelter Grant, and General Funds from the federal government will be spent. City Council Approves Creation of Business Improvement District for Downtown The City Council adopted a resolution establishing a Business Improvement District (BID) in downtown. Such a designation allows an extra tax to be levied on both commercial and residential property in downtown. The money generated by the tax will go toward providing services for downtown, such as for appearance and maintenance. The Council will decide the amount of the tax next spring. It would go into effect in July 2012. City Council Signs Pledge of Support for Durham's First-Ever Strategic Plan City Council members have signed a pledge of support for the City's first-ever Strategic Plan. The plan will serve as a roadmap for the Council and the Administration and help guide them as they make decisions for the future. A $3,000 Trailblazer grant from the National Center for Civic Innovation will help the City in its strategic plan outreach efforts to the public. Some of those efforts will include additional workshops to gain feedback on the new performance management reporting system. The new system will offer the public a way to measure whether the City is achieving its strategic plan goals. Other interviews featured on upcoming episode of "City Hall This Week": • Durham Police Department Southside Assistant Chief Winslow Forbes -- Explains why a new District Four Substation is needed and how the public will be involved in the relocation process. • Solid Waste Management Department Director Donald Long -- Reports on the progress of Durham's recycling program. • Public Works Department Engineering and Stormwater Manager Ed Venable -- Offers an update on Durham's failed and struggling developments.

City Hall This Week - Ep. 125
DURHAM, N.C. -- The following highlights from the October 3, 2011 Durham City Council meeting and other topics of interest will be featured in this episode of "City Hall This Week." The show will also be available to watch on demand at www.DurhamNC.gov/DTV8/CityHallThisWeek.cfm. City Makes Progress on Failed and Struggling Developments The City Council received an update on what is being done to address street and stormwater improvements needed in Durham's failed or struggling developments. These are developments that have not been completed by the developer, often because of a bankruptcy situation due to the recent economic downturn. Public Works Department Engineering and Stormwater Services Manager Ed Venable explains what the City is doing to make sure the improvements are still made on this episode of "City Hall This Week." City Council Approves Teer Quarry Contract Plans are moving forward to reduce Durham's risk during future water shortage emergencies and to adapt to continuing growth. The City Council approved a $993,820 site design contract to allow for the evaluation of Teer Quarry. The City hopes to use the quarry as a short-term water storage and pumping facility that can meet Durham's needs during emergencies as well as be expanded for long-term operations. To find out more about Durham's water supply sources, visit www.DurhamNC.gov/Departments/WM. City Continues Support of Central Warrant Control Office The City of Durham and Durham County are continuing their support of a Central Warrant Control Office in an effort to make sure that outstanding and backlogged warrants are handled as efficiently as possible. To help fund the cost of the office, the City will pay up to $182,516 to help pay for eight full-time clerks and one full-time supervising clerk, plus specific office costs. In addition to the shared clerical costs of operating the office, the City will also pay $282,181 for the salary and benefits of four officers in the Warrant Squad Division. Durham County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Brendan Hardigan explains why the Central Warrant Control Office has become an effective law enforcement resource on this episode of "City Hall This Week." City Accepts Federal Lead Abatement Grant The City's lead abatement program is getting another boost -- thanks to a $416,550 Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control Grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The grant will be used to provide help to 30 homes that are occupied by young children. Community Development Department Housing and Rehabilitation Program Manager Donald Ham explains why lead is especially hazardous to children under the age of six and how he hopes this grant will help stem the effects of lead exposure in Durham's youngest residents on this episode of "City Hall This Week." Other interviews featured on this episode of "City Hall This Week": • Community Development Department Interim Director Reginald Johnson and other City Staff -- Unveil their plan for making sure the Southside Revitalization Project sets the standard for how such projects should be handled in the future. • City Attorney Patrick Baker -- Explains how future elections will be changed by Durham's 2010 Census numbers. • Transportation Department Director Mark Ahrendsen -- Offers some important information about the upcoming half-cent sales tax referendum to support transit improvements in Durham.

NC teachers marching for students
You can add North Carolina's to the growing list of teachers who aren’t gonna take it anymore. Over fifteen thousand have already signed up to attend the “March for Students and Rally for Respect” on Wednesday. In support of the teachers, officials from the state’s six largest districts have announced school closures; 37 districts so far. Since the recession ten years ago, per-pupil funding has not been restored in 29 states; North Carolina ranking among the worst. Mecklenburg County teacher Justin Parmenter has been collecting pictures and stories from around the state. He’s documented, “Classes with so many children that some have to sit on the floor. Other classes taking place in closets… Teachers forced to stop class to attend to special medical needs because there’s no nurse on duty.” http://notesfromthechalkboard.com/2018/05/08/for-nc-teachers-its-about-more-than-the-paycheck/ As expected, rightwing groups tied to the Koch brothers and Art Pope — the state’s most notorious political donor — have been trying to smear the teachers in advance of the rally. You know the drill. “Teachers are greedy” and “ungrateful.” That, “they already got a raise.” “But it’s important for the public to remember that we didn’t get into education for the money.  We teach because we love North Carolina’s children, and we want to see them succeed. Unfortunately, our General Assembly’s misplaced priorities not only create difficult working conditions for our teachers, they create unacceptable learning conditions for students that have lasting impacts on student behavior and achievement.” You see, North Carolina is one of those states where $billions in tax cuts have caused gaping holes in the budget. That’s why teachers have to go online to beg for money so they can buy textbooks. Chemistry labs are so overcrowded, teachers fear for the safety of their students. And critical staffing shortfalls in student services have one nurse for every 2315 students. The North Carolina Association of Educators has posted a timeline for the day’s events on their website, starting at 10 AM with a march from their headquarters at 700 Salisbury St. to the Legislative Building. The rally begins at 3:30 in Bicentennial Plaza. ncae.org/advocacy-day

Obama To Redistribute $1 Billion To Low Income Schools From City And State Money (REACTION)
Barack Obama has passed a series of last minute regulations and pardoning, one in particular being the redistribution of around $1 billion dollars to low income public schools, diverting funds from higher income public schools. The funds in question are city and state, NOT federal, which is a key thing to note because the orders are coming from the federal level. It represents an unprecedented thing - the federal Government dictating the fashion in which city and state education funds are spent. Some will view this as clear federal overreach and some will view it as a necessary thing to happen which will impact children in a positive way. The dollar amount in question varies from $800 million to around $2.2 billion. None of the money is federal and it will all have to be taken from higher income schools then redistributed to lower income schools. The thought process is that the money will provide resources to low income kids that will improve their education. But the question must be asked… will that plan actually work? Does an infusion of money into low income schools taken from high income schools improve education? It may help with physical materials like books, computers, classroom hardware like desks and lighting, and also the building itself, but can the bump in money produce a better outcome at low income schools? One thing to understand is that Newark City Public schools, which exists in a very high crime area, get the most amount of money per pupil out of every other school system in the United States of America. There is still a problem with basic literacy. Literacy in Detroit is comparable to the Central African Republic but the teachers can make upwards of 71k per year. So what’s the problem? A key in the education gap between low income and high income schools (the obvious parallel here is black and white schools) is the home life of the students. White kids generally have more stable homes due to having more two parent households than black kids. White kids generally get educated at home by their mothers so they have a foundation upon which to base their school education on. Black kids are far too often sent to school with no preparation - they can’t read, write, spell their own name, or even count to 10 while white kids can. That’s no fault of the school system, it’s a fault of the parents. And it’s nothing money thrown at the problem as Mark Zuckerberg and the infamous $100 million gift to Newark City Public schools which vanished into thin air. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– If you want to support me to continue to crank out these videos, please visit my website http://www.anthonyblogan.com/contact/ and click on that donate button for me!

The real reason streetcars are making a comeback
It’s mostly about economic development. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Starting in the late 20th century, modern streetcar proposals started rippling across municipalities in the United States. They’re touted as infrastructure carrying benefits ranging from the social to economic and the environmental. But these projects often make appearances in the news as costly, blunder-filled experiments in public policy. Cities are willing to bet big on this technology for its potential to develop the local economy. But there is some disagreement as to whether the streetcar is driving this progress, or if it is simply the result of planning *around* the streetcar. If you're looking for more information on public transportation and urban planning, here are a few links: This interactive map by Yonah Freemark and Steven Vance allows you to zoom in on all public transportation projects across North America. http://www.thetransportpolitic.com/transitexplorer/#6/38.617/-78.673 This paper by Randal O'Toole of the CATO institute looks closely at the policy winds that drives streetcar proposals. https://www.cato.org/publications/policy-analysis/desire-named-streetcar-how-federal-subsidies-encourage-wasteful-local-transit-systems For more information on New York City's streetcar proposal, you can check out the Friends of the BQX website here: http://www.bqx.nyc.

Raine on the Roof
... also known as the Ballad of Tudhoe Grange School. Despite a petition signed by 2000 local people, and against the wishes of the Public, Durham County Council went ahead and demolished a beautiful and well loved redundant School saying that it required £3m - YES £3m - worth of repairs. All requests for it to be put on the market were refused on the grounds that nobody would be interested in purchasing it. Anyone who expressed interest in buying it was told it was not for sale. During the demolition it became evident that part of the building had even had the roof replaced in recent years. Why did the Council insist on demolition? Local people are still trying to find out.

School's Dormitory & Pool House - Abandoned 2001
School's Out Forever - A Dormitory & Pool house explored at an Abandoned Independent Boarding School, Lately a college, that i recently visited in February 2015. The property has sat derelict, slowly decaying away & awaiting redevelopment since December 10th 2001. The main house & former stables are Listed grade 2 properties. The boarding school for girls, at South Park was opened c 1930 by a Miss Mulliner. Its numbers grew and other large houses were acquired to house the girls, namely Durgates Lodge, Aston House, and Wigram. In the 1980's the Legat Ballet School joined the establishment and in the early 1990's the College was amalgamated with Micklefield School from Seaford. In 1997 it had a further change and then became known as Bellerbys College. Pupils from the School have in the past taken part in village life. They have helped with bell ringing and senior pupils ran a Sunday School for twenty years. It was a common sight to see the girls walking in a crocodile to church every Sunday morning. During the Second World War, when the Girl Guides were not able to camp under canvas, Miss Gowdie the headmistress kindly allowed the First and Second Guides Companies to hold their summer camp at Aston House, now known as Beech Hill. The girls slept in the house and used the grounds and the swimming pool by day. Many local children had cause to be grateful as this is where many of them learnt to swim... (info from village history website). The Dormitory building showed the usual signs that the metal thieves had been busy at some point, before or during the on-site security being present, it is not known?. I was surprised by the amount of clothes pegs to the size of the two changing rooms for the swimming pool, the student class size must have been quite small. Sorry if it appears i'm in a hurry...my camera battery was getting low & i was trying to get all the remaining out-buildings explored before it died completely, which i did. although i missed a couple of areas which could be worth a return visit at some point in the future... maybe?
