See all posts by Jonathan Smith Jonathan Smith | Monday, 15th March, 2021 There are plenty of stock investing ideas out there, but a lot depends on what I’m looking to achieve. For example, I could focus on ideas that build passive income up over time. Or if I think an impending stock market crash is coming, I’d look at ideas designed to protect myself. For this article, I want to look at ideas for high capital growth, with the aim of eventually turning a pot of £1,000 into a sum worth £10,000.An example to show the possibilityTo begin with, I want to say that this stock investing idea is entirely plausible. Of course, it’ll take a few years to achieve and isn’t guaranteed, but if I could generate that kind of return overnight, I’d be very suspicious!5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Let’s say I took a timeframe of five years looking backwards. If I’d split my £1,000 into an equal mix of Ocado, Games Workshop, Future, Anglo American and Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust, I’d have turned my £1,000 into over £10,000. Looking at those stocks, it’s plausible for me to have picked those as well. They aren’t obscure AIM penny stocks that are hunting for gold in Africa.Now I’ve shown an example of a portfolio that would have achieved my stock investing idea goal, let’s break it down further. Looking at that example from the past can help me to plan for the future.To begin with, I need to diversify my £1,000. I don’t want to buy too many stocks, so maybe half a dozen is the maximum I’d look for. I also need to diversify the industries I invest in. For the above example, all the businesses operate in very different areas. They ranges from finance to commodities, food and gaming. After all, I’m not sure over the next five years which industry is going to be super hot. So spreading my risk should help in this regard.Patience neededAnother element to my stock investing idea is the patience needed. It’s very tempting to want to take profit and sell a stock when I’ve made 10% or so. Even if I’m up 100%, I need to be patient and let the stocks play out over time. This is because of my goal of trying to turn the £1,000 into £10,000.Patience is also needed when the stocks I buy have negative days. Even the stocks mentioned in the example portfolio didn’t go in a perfect straight line higher. There will be days when my portfolio will be in the red, and I need to resist the urge to sell. It’s all about having the right vision of holding the stocks as long as is needed, given that I believe in their potential.Don’t get me wrong, this idea is ambitious. There are plenty of other stock investing ideas out there that look to set goals that are more conservative. But if I want to try and get my lump sum up to £10,000, I need to have the mindset of thinking big.last_img read more

Logements Marnes-la-Coquette / LEM+ architectes

first_imgArchitects: LEM+ architectes Area Area of this architecture project 2013 France Year:  Logements Marnes-la-Coquette / LEM+ architectes Photographs Year:  CopySave this picture!© Julien LanooText description provided by the architects. Located on the edge of the Saint-Cloud national park, the project by architects Pierre Lépinay and Bertrand Meurice for the I3F social housing development group is set in a particularly green area enclosed by the Garches-Marnes railway station and the A13 motorway.Save this picture!© Julien LanooComprising single-family homes with private gardens on the railway station side and by a group of apartments provided with balconies and ranging from studio flats to four and five room duplex units, the operation (3,338 m² net plan area) takes the form of a drawn-out U-shape that protects the centre of the block from the noise nuisances resulting from the presence of the motorway to the south. These housing units with their large number of windows and dual aspects are particularly bright. The private gardens are bathed in sunlight throughout most of the day thanks to roof profiles specifically designed to limit shadow impact.Save this picture!© Julien LanooThe architects provided a number of innovative solutions to overcome the noise constraints. In addition to the protective U-shaped layout, they incorporated a wooden fence running alongside the motorway, built two-storey buildings with reinforced insulation in the attic spaces, installed sloped roofs with a continuous nine metre high ridge line, and equipped the housing units on the motorway side with acoustic loggias.Save this picture!© Julien LanooActing as a green extension to the housing units, the acoustic loggias open the apartments onto the south, providing large glazed spaces giving onto the Saint-Cloud park while also protecting residents from noise. This planted space, opening onto the sky and closed off to the sides by glass screens, forms a particularly efficient acoustic barrier that is further reinforced by the specific layout of the apartments. The utility rooms give onto the motorway side while the main rooms open onto balconies, loggias and private gardens on the protected side. The noise nuisances are also reduced by the use of a double flow system that avoids the creation of acoustic bridges, improves air quality and contributes to heating the housing units.Save this picture!© Julien LanooWishing to adopt energy-saving solutions, the architects chose to use interior insulation with thermal breaks on slab nosings, install solar panels on the roof and equip each housing unit with solar collector tanks. They also paid particular attention to the landscaping project. Climbing plants have been placed around the site to colonise the fence on the railway line side and the 150 metre long support wall on the motorway side. Lying in the heart of the block outlined by the U-shaped layout, the private gardens are reduced in size as much as possible to offer larger spaces to the common areas that are planted with a variety of species and looked after by the landlord.Save this picture!© Julien LanooThis housing project has seen the LEM + architects invent an alternative type of landscape that contributes to the wellbeing of the residents. Recently handed over, over half the housing units are already occupied.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow less’Strange Utility: Architecture Toward Other Ends’ SymposiumEventDaniel Libeskind: The Art of Memory LectureEventProject locationAddress:Saint-Cloud, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe architects had worked with Peter Domb for many years in his capacity as a commercial developer. They met to look around the site at the bottom of the garden of the Dombs’ existing house, discussing their aspirations for the scheme and possible options. Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe brief was developed from a basic requirement for a 3-bedroom house with generous room sizes – the client was interested in space, not number of rooms. At 270 sq m, the property has a similar floor area to a typical 5-bed house.  Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe Dombs had a strong preference for a contemporary design. Despite being a modern building however, the house has a familiar feel. The pitched roof has traditional connotations and the black façade is reminiscent of the silhouettes of local barns and agricultural buildings, which are typically very dark in colour, appearing almost black on the horizon.Save this picture!Constructive SectionThe architect’s experience in housing enabled it to design a home that responds to practical living needs. The house allows for flexibility in the future, with open plan living and a combined kitchen and entertaining space supplemented by an enclosed private snug. Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe interior is comprised of several flowing spaces, which interlink and flow out to the external patio and garden from the kitchen and dining area.  Internally, the rooms step down to each other in response to the sloping site. The building is very narrow and despite its black monolithic appearance, the large windows offer generous views out and views right through the building from outside.  Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe Dombs are well travelled and have a large collection of individual pieces of artwork to display.  With no theme to connect them (like a mini Burrell collection), the house is designed to double as a gallery space, with bespoke places to display their treasures.  This process was ongoing through the design process and the stair storage wall was redesigned to accommodate an Olympic torch during the project.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasAn abundance of natural light was paramount. Extensive areas of glazing, rooflights and a solar tube to the dressing area ensure the home is flooded with natural light. The entrance hall and living space are double height – right up to the underside of the roof, which accentuates the feeling of generous space and light.Save this picture!Proposed FirstFloor PlanMelanie is a keen gardener and the house is designed have a clear relationship to the exterior, with large doors leading out from the living room and kitchen onto the garden, terraces and patio. The building makes use of the change in ground level and bisects the site, separating the public front from the private back and creating upper and lower gardens.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe construction is a hybrid of block work, steel and traditional timber, including sustainable and energy efficient features. A new borehole provides all fresh water for the house, with soakaways for rainwater discharge, a heat recovery system and zoned underfloor heating. Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe client was keen on materials with longevity and which are maintenance free.  The black zinc cladding is both recyclable and has elements of recycled materials contained within it.  The simple form was continued through into the crisp detailing of the zinc, with concealed gutters. Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe dog is a hugely important member of the Domb family and some ‘doggy’ influences are manifest in the design, including low-level glazing which allows the dog to see out.  Interestingly, he does use these features and goes from window to window to police the garden.The Dombs are hugely proud of their new home. The design is the product of a constructive relationship where both client and architect influenced each other in the creating the final appearance and function of the house.Project gallerySee allShow lessBarajas Social Housing Blocks / EMBTSelected ProjectsHouse Between 2 Gardens / Pitsou Kedem ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Year:  2012 Year:  CopyAbout this officeStephen Davy Peter Smith ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKings LangleyHousesUnited KingdomPublished on February 25, 2014Cite: “MiCasa / Stephen Davy Peter Smith Architects” 24 Feb 2014.

Solidarity with locked-out Honeywell workers

first_imgMartha Grevatt with Honeywell locked out workers, Jan. 5.South Bend, Ind. – On Jan. 5, autoworkers from Detroit and Chicago traveled to South Bend, Ind., to show solidarity with Honeywell workers who have been locked out by the Honeywell bosses since May 9.The workers attended United Auto Workers Local 9’s two monthly membership meetings, held at different times to accommodate everyone’s picketing schedule.  Between meetings, members of UAW Locals 22, 140, 551, 600, 869, 909 and 1700 walked the picket line in the bitter cold. The solidarity delegation was organized by Autoworker Caravan.On May 9, with no advance notice, over 300 Honeywell workers in South Bend and about 50 workers in Green Island, N.Y., were escorted out of their plants in the early morning hours and locked out. This act of corporate terror occurred two days after workers in these two former Bendix brake plants overwhelmingly rejected a contract that tore up 80 years of hard-fought gains.In November, the company tried to shove the same offer down the workers’ throats again. Local 9 members were now weeks away from running out of unemployment benefits but an overwhelming majority voted “no.” They would not accept the runaway health care costs that would eat away at their paychecks and effectively reduce the hourly rate for the lowest paid to below $15. An attack on seniority rights was one of several other big issues. The membership suspended the local’s president after he tried to convince the workers to vote “yes.”Workers are angry that executives and shareholders, themselves rolling in dough, would deny the basic right to health care. Honeywell is a major defense and aerospace supplier with billions of dollars in Pentagon contracts and over 65 plants worldwide. The company, number 75 on the Fortune 500 list, made almost $5 billion in profits in 2015. CEO David Cote was rewarded with over $25 million in salary and other compensation. “Never has a company that soars in profit descended so swiftly and calculatingly for more profit on the backs of its longtime loyal union workers,” UAW Vice President Jimmy Settles wrote in a Detroit News op-ed piece.Workers spoke at length about their uphill battle at the Jan. 5 meetings. “All you have left in this contract is wages,” Vice President Todd Treder explained. “If we take this now, what do you think they’ll be coming after next time? Your wages.” The company wanted another vote on the same bad offer right before Christmas. The local leadership refused.“We are ground zero,” one of the members commented. Honeywell workers, the only UAW members currently locked out, are fighting for the union’s future. The UAW International, along with Region 2B, which includes Indiana, needs to mobilize labor and community solidarity. Workers at the meetings expressed frustration with the bureaucracy.Local 9 thanked Autoworker Caravan as well as Local 551 from the Chicago Ford plant for its consistent solidarity. “Fundraising is important,” a Chrysler worker commented. “When they are trying to starve you out a full pantry is a weapon.”Members of UAW Local 9 are proud of their struggle legacy. The self-published book, “We of Bendix Local No. 9,” explains the critical role Local 9 played in U.S. labor history. The Nov. 17-23 Bendix sit-down in 1936 was the first for the UAW. “Order and discipline were maintained within the plant, members fed, families in distress were helped, amateur shows put on, parades, religious services, and an agreement for settlement was finally reached. … Bendix Local 9 had won a tremendous victory!” Bendix dissolved the company union and recognized the UAW. This paved the way for victories at General Motors, Chrysler and others.Over the years, Local 9 fought many battles and won many gains. In the early years, the union fought to get women paid the same hourly rate for the same exact job as men. Today, Local 9 is just as united in its fight for health care and contract justice.Martha Grevatt, a 29-year UAW Chrysler worker, was part of the Honeywell solidarity delegation.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Clairbourn Students Flex Their Math Muscles

first_img 9 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Spring is the season where students in Mary Lyzenga’s middle school math classes flex their mental muscles to take on tests and competitions designed to prove their mettle as mathematicians. This year, the seventh grade accelerated math class participated in the annual Math Olympiads Program. They took a series of five exams during the year, which required them to solve unusual and difficult problems.[smooth=id:154;]Last week, each student who participated received a certificate, and student Charles Bai received a trophy for having the highest cumulative score for the five tests. To hone their skills for this activity, seven of the students participated in twice-weekly math club lunchtime meetings, where they practiced solving unusual problems and learned to think creatively. Participants from Clairbourn included Ashley Vu, Xian Shively, Brennan Graves, Charles Bai, Spencer Zahabizadeh, Holden Fraser, Oren Wei, Andrew Cheng, Owen Timoner, Will Steele, Chris Myers, Richard Dong, Emily Su, and Chris Stamos. The Math Olympiads Program has member schools in 49 states as well as 25 foreign countries, and there are close to 5,000 participating schools.Additionally, a group of these same seventh graders participated in the annual Don Bosco Math Competition for students up to eighth grade. The event was held at Don Bosco Tech on Saturday morning, April 27. The students had one hour to complete a 50 question test (no calculators allowed). Clairbourn students received an honorable mention for placing fourth among the 10 competing schools. The participants were Christopher Myers, Oren Wei, Owen Timoner, Emily Su, Ashley Vu, Andrew Cheng, and Charles Bai.Sixth-graders also had a math adventure in mid-May when they took several field trips to area businesses to give their math studies practical context. The first stop on the field trip was Trader Joe’s at the corner of Rosemead Blvd. and Huntington Dr. where Store Manager Andy gave them a tour and talked to them about the math used in pricing and ordering products. The students received great information as well as a parting gift of snacks in a reusable bag. The next two business to display their math usage were law firms and included Littler Mendelson, where Clairbourn parent Tanja Darrow-Cole explained how math is used in corporate law, and Tucker Ellis where Clairbourn parent Bart Kessell talked about using math in calculating damages when one company sues another for loss of income. The final stop was Kendall Roclord’s “Unconventional Portrait Photography” studio in Pasadena. Mr. Roclord delighted the students with stories about his work, showed photographs, and explained the intricate use of math in achieving his photographic images. It was an exciting and educational day for the sixth grade students!For more information, visit Herbeauty9 Gorgeous Looks That Have Been Classic Go-tos For DecadesHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Of The Best Metabolism-Boosting Foods For Weight LossHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Signs You’re Not Ready To Be In A RelationshipHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Special Massage Techniques That Will Make You Return For MoreHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyInstall These Measures To Keep Your Household Safe From Covid19HerbeautyHerbeauty Subscribe center column 3 Clairbourn Students Flex Their Math Muscles From STAFF REPORTS Published on Monday, May 20, 2013 | 4:56 pm EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS More Cool Stuff Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimescenter_img Community News Your email address will not be published.

The Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad has further directed the Delhi Government to indicate the degree of compliance with the recommendations of the Committee constituted by the Lieutenant Governor to monitor Delhi’s preparedness to deal with COVID19. The order has come in a writ petition moved by Mr Rakesh Malhotra seeking ramping of testing facilities for both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients of COVID19. During the proceedings, the Delhi Government submitted the report of the committee constituted by the LG of Delhi wherein the following parts were cited as relevant: The Committee has agreed that to avoid duplication of data entries on multiple portals, the private laboratories will be permitted to enter relevant information on the RT-PCR App and on the ICMR portal and they will not be required to upload the data or make entries on any other portal or App. The Committee has opined that the phlebotomists attached to the private labs who are required to collect the samples on site may fill up Sample Requisition Forms (SRF) in hard copy and subsequently, the said information may be captured and uploaded on the RT-PCR App after going back to the laboratory. It has been agreed that updation of the information will be done by the private laboratories within 30 minutes, for a positive test and 90 minutes, for a negative test, as recommended by the ICMR. For this purpose, the Delhi Government shall augment the number of data entry operators at the labs to facilitate entries on the ICMR portal The Committee has also recommended that to ensure that all the samples are processed within a maximum period of 48 hours reckoned from the time, the sample reaches the concerned lab and the private laboratories have been advised not to accept samples beyond their processing capacity. Lastly, the Committee has suggested that an interactive platform be identified and virtual meetings be convened between the GNCTD and the private laboratories to iron out any difficulties that may be faced by them in the future. In addition to this, the Delhi Government informed the court that the continuous interaction between the officers of the Health Department, Delhi Government, and the private laboratories is ensured through a WhatsApp group and virtual meetings. ‘Total of 1,09,196 samples have been collected over the past 6 days with an average of 18,200 samples per day’, the Delhi Government submitted. Delhi Government further submitted that it is proposing to commence conducting Anti Body test across the city at the rate of 4,000 to 5,000 tests per day commencing from 27.06.2020. At this point, the court directed the Delhi Government to state on affidavit as to how it is proposing to ramp up the tests across Delhi, which has a population of 1.67 crores. Delhi Government is further directed to upload the ICMR’s advisory dated 23/06/20 on its website which states that Rapid Antibody Testing can be used by all hospitals, laboratories and State Governments including COVID-19 private hospitals for which they will be required to register with the ICMR. Therefore, the court said: ‘GNCTD is directed to file a fresh Status Report indicating compliances of the Minutes of Meeting of the Committee constituted by the Lt. Governor, GNCTD. A tabulated statement indicating the number of tests in all categories undertaken by the State from 18.6.2020 to 30.6.2020, and the further action plan to ramp up the testing in Delhi be filed well before the next date of hearing.’ The court will next take up the matter on July 02.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

The boy from Troy: Leaders mourn the loss of ‘a giant among men’

first_imgFormer U.S. Congressman John Lewis, a civil rights icon and Pike County native, will be honored at Troy University after the Board of Trustees voted unanimously on Wednesday to rename the prominent Bibb-Graves Hall in honor of Lewis. Sponsored Content Leaders throughout Pike County mourned the death of “the boy from Troy” John Lewis, who spent his life battling racial discrimination.Lewis, 80, died Friday after a months-long battle with pancreatic cancer.Rights activists, politicians from both parties and many other people touched by the legacy of John Lewis mourned the congressman and pillar of the civil rights movement, lauding the strength, courage and kindness of a man whose lifelong struggle against racial discrimination took him from a bridge in Selma to the nation’s Capitol. “(He) didn’t believe things couldn’t change and he changed them,” said Troy Mayor Jason Reeves. “Troy, Alabama, the United States and the world are better because John Lewis was born on that farm in Northeast Pike County and lived a remarkable life. Our prayers go out to his family and the millions he touched through humble courage, love and a spirit that would never give up.”Reeves grew up on a small farm in Northeast Pike County, and his life intertwined often with Lewis’. “ There was not a paved road between there and the farm John Lewis grew up on and preached to his chickens.

2nd woman accuses VA pol Fairfax of sexual assault, as calls for his resignation grow

first_imgDrew Angerer/Getty Images(RICHMOND, Va.) —  A second woman came forward Friday to accuse Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault.Through a statement released by her attorney, Meredith Watson claims that Fairfax raped her while the two were students at Duke University in 2000.“On behalf of our client, we have notified Justin Fairfax through his attorneys that Ms. Watson hopes he will resign from public office,” Nancy Erika Smith said in a statement.Shortly afterward, Fairfax issued a statement denying what he called the “latest unsubstantiated allegation. It is demonstrably false. I have never forced myself on anyone ever.” He added that he has previously passed FBI background checks and is demanding a full investigation into the claims, adding: “I am telling the truth.”“I will not resign,” Fairfax said.Still, pressure continued to mount late into Friday night, when Virginia House Delegate Patrick Hope said that if Fairfax does not resign by Monday, he will introduce the articles of impeachment.“I believe these women,” Hope said. “He needs to resign immediately.”When asked why he is introducing articles of impeachment for Fairfax, but not for Northam or Herring, Hope said Fairfax is being accused of a crime.“Well the distinction between a sexual assault or a rape is clearly very different and the articles of impeachment under the constitution are very clear, high crimes of misdemeanor [and] this clearly meets that threshold,” Hope told reporters. “While the events that occurred 30-some years ago with the governor and the attorney general, while they’re heinous and clearly insensitive — they don’t rise to the same level.”Around the same time that Hope making his statements, the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus likewise called for Fairfax to resign.“In light of the most recent sexual assault allegations against [Fairfax], the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus believe it is best for [Fairfax] to step down from his position.”“While we believe that anyone accused of such a grievous and harmful act must receive the due process prescribed by the Constitution, we can’t see it in the best interest of the Commonwealth of Virginia for the Lieutenant Governor to remain in his role.”The latest accusation comes after another allegation earlier this week against him deepened the political chaos in the state.On Wednesday, Vanessa Tyson, an associate professor of politics at Scripps College in California, who cclaimed that the then 25-year-old Fairfax sexually assaulted her in a hotel room during the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston.“On the night of Friday, February 1, 2019, I read multiple news accounts indicating that Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax would likely be elevated to Governor as an immediate result of a scandal involving Governor Ralph Northam. This news flooded me with painful memories, bringing back feelings of grief, shame, and anger that stemmed from an incident with Mr. Fairfax that occurred in July 2004 during the Democratic National Convention in Boston,” Tyson wrote in a statement released through her legal team.Fairfax vehemently denied Tyson’s claim as well.Following Watson’s accusation on Friday, former Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Democratic Rep. Jennifer Wexton both called on Fairfax to resign.The allegations against Justin Fairfax are serious and credible. It is clear to me that he can no longer effectively serve the people of Virginia as Lieutenant Governor. I call for his immediate resignation.— Terry McAuliffe (@TerryMcAuliffe) February 8, 2019I believe Dr. Vanessa Tyson.I believe Meredith Watson.And I believe Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax must resign.— Rep. Jennifer Wexton (@RepWexton) February 8, 2019A number of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, including Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, released statements on Twitter Friday evening calling on Fairfax to step down.The multiple detailed allegations against the Lt. Gov. of Virginia are deeply troubling. They are serious, credible, and corroborated by others. It is no longer appropriate for him to serve. He should resign.— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) February 8, 2019My statement below on Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax:— Kirsten Gillibrand (@SenGillibrand) February 8, 2019In a joint statement released Friday, five Democratic members of the Virginia congressional delegation, Reps. Abigail Spanberger, Elaine Luria, Don Beyer, Gerry Connolly and Wexton all called on Fairfax to step down.“Lt. Governor Fairfax has also shown exceptionally poor judgment in his handling of these allegations. He repeatedly attacked his accuser, he reportedly used vile and degrading language to describe her, he mischaracterized an investigation into the encounter, and he sought to blame others for events in his own past. These actions do not meet the standard to which we hold Virginia’s highest elected officers,” the statement read.“For these reasons, we believe that Justin Fairfax cannot continue to serve as Lt. Governor Of Virginia, and should step aside,” they added.”Additionally, Rep. Donald McEachin called on Fairfax to step down.Given recent developments, I believe that it is best for the Commonwealth of Virginia if Justin Fairfax dealt with these accusations as a private citizen. He can no longer serve us as the Lieutenant Governor of Virginia.— Rep. Donald McEachin (@RepMcEachin) February 8, 2019The Republican Party of Virginia released a statement Friday calling for the claims of both Tyson and Watson to be “investigated thoroughly.”This is the second serious sexual assault allegation leveled against the Lieutenant Gov. in the past week. As with with Dr. Tyson’s allegation, it needs to be investigated thoroughly because it impacts his ability to continue to serve the Commonwealth.— Virginia GOP (RPV) (@VA_GOP) February 8, 2019The new questions about Fairfax come as the state’s other top two elected officials, Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring, also Democrats, face controversies of their own.Northam continues to remain in office despite near-universal calls for his resignation after a racist photo of a man in blackface and another in Ku Klux Klan robes appeared on his 1984 medical school yearbook page.All eight major Democratic presidential candidates have called on Northam to step down.State Attorney General Mark Herring meanwhile dropped another political bombshell on the state Wednesday, revealing in a statement that in 1980 he dressed up as rapper Kurtis Blow and wore “brown makeup,” to a college party.“In the days ahead, honest conversations and discussions will make it clear whether I can or should continue to serve as attorney general, but no matter where we go from here, I will say that from the bottom of my heart, I am deeply, deeply sorry for the pain that I cause with this revelation,” Herring, who met Wednesday with African-American leaders in the Virginia state legislation, wrote in a statement.In a statement released Thursday, the nine Democratic members of Virginia’s congressional delegation released a statement saying Herring “earnestly reached out” to them to apologize and “express his deep remorse.”The members reiterated their calls for Northam to resign and said the allegations against Fairfax “need to be taken very seriously, and we respect the right of women to come forward and be heard.”  Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
