Fellow performer Paul Anka claimed that Holly embarked on the Winter Dance Party because he was short on money. No traveling in luxuryOn “The Day the Music Died,” Holly and his friends were halfway through the Winter Dance Party. A gig in Chicago was scheduled the next day, Feb. 8. The plane crash had merited only a few paragraphs in the Illinois State Journal on Feb. 4. Others pushed it to the background for another airline disaster, the loss of an American Airlines commercial jet in New York on the same day as the Holly plane crash.
One woman told AP she tried three times before she was allowed to pass and get back to her own home. WHAT THEY FOUND IN THE GARDENLife under the occupation of Chaiko’s forces was tense and terrifying, local residents told AP and Frontline. “I give you one hour to go and come back or you’ll be like this one in the car,” the Russian told him. Those units were all under the ultimate command of Chaiko, Ukrainian authorities told AP. 21, the day Russian soldiers captured Voznenko, his cell phone pinged the same cell tower as 40 Russian phone numbers — an indication of who was nearby when he was abducted.3 months ago Jacksonville Journal-Courier
As a scholar of Asian philosophy and religions, I believe the popularity of “mottainai” expresses an ideal more than a reality. These traditions have been shaped by centuries-old Buddhist and Shinto teachings about inanimate objects’ interconnectedness with humans that continue to influence culture today. One special class of yokai is known as “tsukumogami,” referring to animated household objects. These animated household objects took offense at their casual disregard after years of loyal service. As a Japanese philosophy of waste, “mottainai” keys into Zen Buddhism’s emphasis on emptiness: minimalism to empty the mind and bring insight.3 months ago Jacksonville Journal-Courier
In preparation to build a house, the Sacketts had fill material placed on the site without obtaining a Clean Water Act permit. 'Waters of the US'The Clean Water Act regulates discharges of pollutants into "waters of the United States." In 2006, when the court last took up this issue, no majority was able to agree on how to define "waters of the United States." Most have applied Kennedy's significant nexus standard, while a few have held that the Clean Water Act applies if either Kennedy's standard or Scalia's is satisfied. Congress could clarify what the Clean Water Act means by "waters of the United States," but past efforts to legislate a definition have fizzled.3 months ago Jacksonville Journal-Courier
It’s about the importance of a dynamic industrial base capable of producing weapons and munitions at speed and scale. “Ukraine has focused us ... on what really matters,” William LaPlante, the Pentagon’s chief weapons buyer, recently remarked. Countless supply chains are overstretched and we’ve lost critical slack needed to ramp up production of essential goods and materials when needed. The withering of our industrial base has also created alarming reliance on supply chains controlled by our rivals or, worse yet, our adversaries. Rebuilding our industrial base from the mine up and reducing barriers in order to allow America’s dynamic private sector to do the heavy lifting is essential work that cannot wait.1 month ago Jacksonville Journal-Courier
“It’s the myth of Orpheus, told from Eurydice’s point of view,” said director Aasne Daniels, a theater assistant professor at IC. According to Greek mythology, the two are desperately in love when Eurydice dies on what was to be their wedding day. Orpheus, a great musician — the best — uses his considerable talent to charm his way into the Underworld to reclaim his bride. His music even works on Hades, who agrees to let Orpheus take Eurydice with him when he returns to the land of the living. (In the end), she’s faced with the choice of whether to go back to the way things were or” move forward.3 months ago Jacksonville Journal-Courier
Organizations went remote, some stayed there. They reported: Hard skills can help you get a recruiter's attention, but soft skills can help you land the job. More than three in five (61% of professionals say soft skills in the workplace are just as important as hard skills. I predict that with the rise of importance, how we assess these soft skills will improve. Employers are recognizing that in a lot of cases, four-year degree requirements are nothing more than a privilege-rooted barrier to entry for otherwise exceptionally qualified applicants.2 months ago Jacksonville Journal-Courier
With more confidence than the other plants, I placed the bald cypress on the cart and headed to the site. However, the bald cypress struggled to establish at first, but now is a beautiful specimen of a tree. Provided this bald cypress can steer clear of hazards (namely humans), it will grow up to 70 feet tall and nearly 50 feet wide. State champion bald cypress have been measured up to 125 feet tall and some are estimated to have celebrated their 1,000th birthday. The native range of bald cypress just kisses the tip of southern Illinois.11 days ago Jacksonville Journal-Courier
