Gene Rosen had just finished feeding his cats and was heading from his home near Sandy Hook Elementary school to a diner Friday morning when he saw six small children sitting in a neat semicircle at the end of his driveway.A school bus driver was standing over them,Nike Heels, telling them things would be all right. It was about 9:30 a.m., and the children, he discovered, had just run from the school to escape a gunman.

“We can’t go back to school,” one little boy told Rosen. “Our teacher is dead. Mrs. Soto; we don’t have a teacher.”Rosen, a 69-year-old retired psychologist, took the four girls and two boys into his home, and over the next few hours gave them toys, listened to their stories and called their frantic parents.Rosen said he had heard the staccato sound of gunfire about 15 minutes earlier but dismissed it as an obnoxious hunter in the nearby woods.

&quot,Nike High Heels;I had no idea what had happened,” Rosen said. “I couldn’t take that in.”

He walked the children past his small goldfish pond with its running waterfall, and the garden he made with his two grandchildren, into the small yellow house he shares with his wife.He ran upstairs and grabbed an armful of stuffed animals. He gave those to the children,Griffey Shoes, along with some fruit juice, and sat with them as the two boys described seeing their teacher being shot.

Victoria Soto,Nike Free Run 2013, 27, was a first-grade teacher killed when 20-year-old Adam Lanza burst into her classroom. It wasn’t clear how the children escaped harm, but there have been reports that Soto hid some of her students from the approaching gunman. The six who turned up at Rosen’s home did apparently have to run past her body to safety.&quot, A North Korean satellite launched;They said he had a big gun and a little gun,” said Rosen, who didn’t want to discuss other details the children shared.

Rosen called the children’s parents, using cellphone numbers obtained from the school bus company, and they came and retrieved their children.One little girl, he said, spent the entire ordeal clutching a small stuffed Dalmatian to her chest and staring out the window looking for her mommy.And one little boy brought them all a moment of levity.

&quot,Nike Fre Run 3;This little boy turns around, and composes himself, and he looks at me like he had just removed himself from the carnage and he says, `Just saying, your house is very small,”‘ Rosen said. “I wanted to tell him, `I love you. I love you.”‘

Rosen said Sandy Hook had always been a place of joy for him. He taught his 8-year-old grandson to ride his bike in the school parking lot and took his 4-year-old granddaughter to use the swings.”I thought today how life has changed, how that ground has been marred, how that school has been desecrated,” he said.

He said it wasn’t his training as a psychologist that helped him that day — it was being a grandparent.

A couple of hours after the last child left, a knock came on his door. It was a frantic mother who had heard that some children had taken refuge there. She was looking for her little boy.”Her face looked frozen in terror,” Rosen said, breaking down in tears.”She thought maybe a miracle from God would have the child at my house,” he said. Later, “I looked at the casualty list … and his name was on it.”

Kategoria: Wiadomościwz66of5x846 @ 14:52

President Barack Obama responded on Monday to House Speaker John Boehner’s offer to compromise on tax rate increases with his own compromise on both tax increases and spending cuts, according to a source familiar with the discussions. Obama’s latest offer brings the two sides billions of dollars closer to a deal to avert the fiscal cliff, which promises tax increases on income of all levels and across-the-board spending cuts in the new year.

For the first time, Boehner this weekend had offered to accept tax rate increases on household income over $1 million, sources said. Obama, who had stood steadfast at the threshold of $250,000, on Monday offered Boehner a package which would raise rates on household income above $400,000. The president also offered ground on cuts to discretionary federal government spending. His initial offers had included no cuts; his latest offer cuts of $200 billion, divided evenly between defense and non-defense programs.

The two men met face to face at the White House on Monday for 45 minutes, their third such meeting in eight days, a sign of an acceleration in the fiscal cliff negotiations,Adidas jeremy scott wings 2.0. Neither side favors returning income tax rates to 1990s levels on all income.

Hours before news of the president’s latest offer emerged, White House spokesman Jay Carney made it clear that more work needed to be done,Griffeys Shoes. “The president’s proposal is the only proposal that we have seen that achieves the balance that is so necessary” between revenue and cost-cutting, said Carney, who refused to discuss specifics,Adidas jeremy scott wings 2.0. Congress had been scheduled to end its work last week, but legislators returned to Washington on Monday and leaders warned members to be prepared to stay until Christmas and return after the holiday until year-end.

&quot,Griffey Shoes;It appears at this stage — we’ll see if anything changes — but it appears we’re going to be coming back the day after Christmas to complete work on the fiscal cliff,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, said Monday. Last week, U.S. Rep, Explosions rocked parts of the capital city. Chris Van Hollen, D-Maryland, said a deal would have to be reached by Christmas to allow time for the legislative process to approve the required measure or measures by the end of the year. The source told CNN that Obama’s latest offer includes $1.2 trillion in revenue increases on individual income and $1.22 trillion in spending reductions, though Boehner’s office said the math adds up differently.

&quot,Nike Free Run;Any movement away from the unrealistic offers the president has made previously is a step in the right direction, but a proposal that includes $1.3 trillion in revenue for only $930 billion in spending cuts cannot be considered balanced,” Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck said. “We hope to continue discussions with the president so we can reach an agreement that is truly balanced and begins to solve our spending problem.”

I spoke out recently when Internet access

Kategoria: Wiadomościwz66of5x846 @ 14:52

I spoke out recently when Internet access was shut down in Syria amid understandable outcry. What mostly went unreported is that 80% of Syrians never had access to the Internet in the first place. This underscores our need to prioritize giving people access to ICTs.The solution requires partnership between the public and private sectors, within frameworks that encourage innovation alongside investment in areas where it is needed most. Considering measures to achieve this is one of the most important items on WCIT’s agenda. More details of all major topics are available via the ITU website.

ITU’s development of technical standards, alongside the work of others, has played a key role in enabling connectivity and interoperability in today’s powerful technologies of mobile including optical fiber, television, video compression, mobile, broadband and Internet. I believe that broadband in particular can be the engine that drives progress,Cheap Nike Zoom KD IV, but without ITU standards on, for example, transport mechanisms to carry information around the world, broadband services simply would not work.The telecommunications system that enables our networked society is global, and solutions to issues such as cybersecurity must be global too. We must meet the challenge posed by the massive growth in data traffic that is not yet matched by infrastructure development,ken griffey shoes. And many believe there should be a level playing field at national and international levels, to avoid abuse of power by dominant players.

WCIT is where such questions can start to be openly discussed and answered. It is a world conference and a unique meeting place where issues can be debated that will have an immense impact on our lives,Lebron 9,A 3-pointer by Ginobili put the Spurs up two. What is at stake is whether we advance together towards a truly connected world,Adidas jeremy scott 2013, or instead contemplate a deepening digital divide with all its consequences,Nike Free Run Australia.We cannot afford to miss the opportunities presented by WCIT. Through dialogue, compromise and cooperation, the conference can help lead us towards a knowledge society in which people everywhere, whatever their circumstances, can access, use, share and create data in an affordable and secure manner. That is what WCIT is about.

http://wwwkengriffeyjrshoes2013scom Tragedy at my doorstep

Kategoria: Wiadomościwz66of5x846 @ 14:52

Tragedy at my doorstep: I do not know one of the families involved in this tragedy,new balance 993. Instead I am just a dad who asks, “How am I supposed to protect my daughter from this,Nike Free Run?”This is not about gun control, or politics. Not about school security or lack thereof. It’s about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I moved away from the Bronx in New York to start my family. To a nice quiet town in Connecticut just a few towns over from Newtown, just to get away from the rage and violence of the city and suddenly I am reminded that no matter where you go you cannot hide from this type of danger. You see, this one is closer than my backyard; it’s right on my doorstep and no amount of gun control or law enforcement or school security could have prevented a lunatic with an agenda to destroy life. It is with a heavy heart that my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.– Jon Russo

Tears today in Connecticut: I am a librarian assistant at a high school in Storrs. Today’s tragedy in Newtown was felt throughout the day–police here were on campus, students were walked to their cars, administrators staged themselves in the main lobby. My mother emailed me all day, keeping me informed and up-to-date. I held back tears many times, not able to stop thinking about this senseless horror. What would I do if it happened here in my Storrs school? What would I be feeling if it was happening at my niece’s high school in Beacon Falls?

This catastrophic anger that leads to insane acts such as this needs to stop,Cheap Nike Free Run. We stop it by choosing love over anger&hellip, Key Egyptian rights gr; every time,Nike Free Run 2. Stop being angry, even slightly, at your spouse, your children, family and friends who have hurt you. Forgive them all and choose love instead. Loving energy will start fueling this nightmare of our world instead of anger. And maybe, just maybe,new balance 420, tragedies like this will become less and less. Please. Stop allowing the anger to win. Choose love instead.– Tami Hawley, Storrs

Tragedy and questions: As a Connecticut resident who listened to and watched radio and TV coverage of the incident, it reminded me that what happened in Newtown today could very well happen again someday, and not just in Connecticut.

The pain and suffering that the victims’ families and friends have felt in the wake of the tragedy is heartbreaking; so is the somber realization that the world has become more dangerous and complex than anyone realized. Somber, too, is the understanding that we may never learn the full reasons behind the shooting rampages that affected Newtown and other locales throughout the world in the past, leaving us with nightmarish images that remain damning today. What lingers, too, is a reminder of what might have been for the countless victims who had so much to live for. We can only hope that someday, such acts of insanity become a thing of the past.– John Lavernoich, Winsted

Newtown shooting hits home in many ways: I live in Middlebury, a town just 14 miles east of Newtown; I have driven through Newtown many times.In the past, these tragedies occurred in places hours away, instead of mere minutes.There are no words to describe today’s tragedy.
