U.S. students walk out again to protest gun violence

U.S. students walk out again to protest gun violenceBy Keith Coffman LITTLETON, Colo. (Reuters) – Demanding an end to gun violence and tougher restrictions on firearm sales, thousands of students again walked out of classes across the United States on Friday in hopes of putting pressure on politicians ahead of November’s midterm elections. Timed to coincide with the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre, students left classes at midmorning, many waving placards with slogans including “I should be worried about grades, not guns,” and “Enough is enough.” Organizers said students from more than 2,600 schools and institutions were scheduled to take part, but that was fewer than participated in a similar walkout last month. In some places, demonstrators even met with resistance from school administrators.

The power is out again in Puerto Rico, 7 months after Hurricane Maria

The power is out again in Puerto Rico, 7 months after Hurricane MariaSeven months after Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico is still dealing with the fallout as it experienced an island-wide blackout on Wednesday. SEE ALSO: The mayor of Puerto Rico’s capital can’t believe this tiny firm’s $300 million contract This latest power outage follows a series of outages in the months since Maria. Just last week, half of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority’s (PREPA) customers lost power when a tree fell across a major power line. And in November 2017, San Juan and several other cities lost power at least twice due to a failure.  The entire electrical system in Puerto Rico collapses AGAIN! Back to September 20th. @DavidBegnaud @leylasantiago @maddow @stephencolbertr — Carmen Yulín Cruz (@CarmenYulinCruz) April 18, 2018 Per CNN, PREPA is focusing primary efforts on getting power back to hospital and water services as well as banks and the city of San Juan. The outage was reportedly caused when an excavator hit a main transmission line while clearing vegetation. PREPA is hoping to have power restored in the next 24 to 36 hours One spotlight event will go on as scheduled, though. The Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins are in San Juan for a two-game series and Wednesday’s night game will go forward as planned thanks to generators to power the lights at Hiram Bithorn Stadium.  All emergency systems at Hiram Bithorn Stadium have been tested just now and are fully functional. The game will GO ON. Nothing will stop us pic.twitter.com/u4jpCkjc1Q — Carmen Yulín Cruz (@CarmenYulinCruz) April 18, 2018 The island’s infrastructure and power grid were already fragile
before Maria struck in late September 2017, lashing the island with sustained winds of up to 140 miles per hour, throwing the entire island into the dark and straining resources.  Controversy has followed recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, including President Trump’s disastrous response to the storm and the much-debated contract initially given to Whitefish Energy to repair the power infrastructure. And the exact death toll from the storm is still unknown; while the official number stands at 65, this number is likely far too low, with some estimates pegging it at closer to 1,000.
