When Is Joe Biden’s Inauguration Ceremony?

When Is Joe Biden’s Inauguration Ceremony?

first_imgTraditionally, the group that is seated on the platform includes the president and vice president and their families; the president-elect and vice president-elect and their families; the chief justice and associate justices of the Supreme Court; former presidents; the diplomatic corps; cabinet members and nominees; members of Congress; governors; the Joint Chiefs of Staff; and other guests, according to the joint committee.In 2017, when Mr. Trump was sworn in, his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, were in attendance, as were Mr. Trump’s predecessor, former President Barack Obama, and his wife, Michelle Obama, and former Presidents George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter. President George H.W. Bush was unable to attend because of poor health; he died in 2018.How long is the Inaugural Address?- Advertisement – Washington, the nation’s first president, was sworn in on April 30, 1789, at Federal Hall in New York City.Andrew Jackson’s first inauguration, on March 4, 1829, was the first ceremony to be conducted on the East Portico of the Capitol. The crowds of attendees were so excited that they rushed toward the new president, who then retreated into the Capitol and rode a horse to the White House. Every president since George Washington has delivered the Inaugural Address, which has ranged from 8,445 words to 135 words, according to the committee. During his Inaugural Address on Jan. 20, 2017, Mr. Trump spoke for 16 minutes before hundreds of thousands of followers and spectators. In his speech, he vowed to shatter the established order and reverse a national decline that he called “this American carnage.”The next day, Mr. Trump disputed independent estimates of the attendance, saying that up to 1.5 million people had been there, a claim disproved by photographs. Visual estimates of the size of the crowd put it at one-third the size of Mr. Obama’s first inauguration in 2009.Has the event always been in January?No. The ratification of the 20th Amendment in 1933 fixed Jan. 20 as the date. Before that, inaugurations traditionally took place on March 4. Through history, the ceremony has taken place on other dates and in 10 different locations.- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more

Letters to the Editor for Saturday, April 27

Letters to the Editor for Saturday, April 27

first_imgMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the census Stop wasting time investigating TrumpIt’s about time the Democrats that were voted into office stop wasting taxpayers’ money and start working with our president. Get a life. Leave the president’s family alone. Read my lips, no collusion. What part don’t you understand? Do the job you were voted in for — solving America’s problems and make America proud again. Don’t you think it’s about time you get off your high horse? I pray that God punishes you for not standing up to the baby killers. Democrats want Trump’s tax returns for the past six years. Well maybe he should make them do the same. Why aren’t they investigating the Democrats’ tax returns? The president has a great idea. Send all of the illegal immigrants to the sanctuary cities and start with Pelosi in California. Have free college education only for the children of those serving our country.Another thing: Plastic bags are destroying our oceans and creatures. People should be charged 5 or 10 cents. Or they can bring them back and reuse them. They have reusable bags you can get and keep on using them. Or the stores can supply them with paper bags, which are biodegradable. Stop littering our country. James MaxfieldScotia Headline flipped the intention of reportThe Gazette headline on April 19 reported a masterful example of word engineering. Mr. Mueller, after two years of diligent effort to uncover criminal activity on the part of President Trump, had failed to “clear” him. As if their original mission was to prove him innocent. What happened to our judicial system’s tenet of “presumed innocent until proven guilty?” Ah, revenge is so sweet.Jim NorrisClifton Parkcenter_img Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionBeaver problem in Preserve is complexThe beavers in the Woodlawn Preserve have generated concern over the past few weeks. We’ve  heard from beaver supporters from as far away as California and local folks as well. The pond in the Preserve is a municipal retention pond designed in the 1970s to control flooding in the Woodlawn neighborhood. The last few years were very problematic, with the city expending quite a bit of time, effort and money to keep the culvert that drains the pond clear due to increased beaver activity. The state Department of Environmental Conservation was consulted, and its suggestions included breaching the dams on the Rotterdam side of the culvert, trapping to reduce the population, and replacing the current drainage grate with a different type of baffle.The decision to reduce the population was made by the city (not the Friends of the Woodlawn Preserve) following recommendations and permits from the DEC. But a new flow-control device isn’t the only solution to the problems the beavers are causing. Trees are a beaver’s food source, and besides chewing down a tree, they also strip it of its bark, resulting in tree death. Solutions include wrapping trees with wire or fencing off areas of trees to prevent them from being targeted by the beavers.Knowing that the beaver population will again increase, the city is continuing to explore more options under the guidance of the DEC, and we will continue to advocate for a different type of flow device to better control the water level.If you really care about the beavers and the Preserve, please join us in our efforts.Janet ChenSchenectadyThe writer is the chair of the Friends of the Woodlawn Preserve.last_img read more

PDA (Yay or Nay?).

PDA (Yay or Nay?).

first_imgLifestyleRelationships PDA (Yay or Nay?). by: – April 15, 2011 Sharing is caring! Share Tweet 86 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Share Let’s face it —we see it everywhere we go. At restaurants, at the movies or even at the supermarket.Hugs and smooches with hands in each other’s back pockets while walking (I never understood this move).PDA (Public Displays of Affection) can be shown all kinds of ways. Many couples have pet names for each other or some can’t keep their hands off the other’s body parts.I always wonder what kind of couples display public affection? In the beginning of a new love we’re sitting on cloud nine finding our lovers irresistible to the point where we always want to touch.But does this feeling eventually fade away? Or is it couples that have been together for years that still adore each other so much they want the world to see? I think it’s a little bit of both, but mostly new lovebirds.All lovers aren’t PDA material, for a number of reasons. If the two were more of a reserved item then PDA wouldn’t excite them. I think PDA comes from the chemistry and the actual physical attraction you have for your lover.If you are extremely attracted to each other it’s hard to excuse your hands from touching, grabbing, and caressing your mate, even in public. I love PDA. It shows affection and love within the relationship other than just saying, “I love you” or “I like you a lot.” Actions always speak louder than words.Nevertheless, I’m not saying those couples that do not show PDA are lacking love or affection, they may show it differently. I notice couples when I’m out who are crazy about each other who can’t keep their eyes off the prize.How much is too much PDA? A little peck every now and again doesn’t hurt, but overly making out tends to be a bit trashy and too much for the public eye.By GalTimer Staci CoxYahoo Shinelast_img read more

GVF president in fear of COVID-19 ruining rest of 2020

GVF president in fear of COVID-19 ruining rest of 2020

first_imgBy Clifton RossPRESIDENT of Guyana Volleyball Federation (GVF) Levi Nedd is in fear of COVID-19 sullying the balance of 2020 and as a result the fraternity’s proposed calendar of activities and programmes.Nedd has been optimistic about action returning some time this month, following a month’s lockdown. He told Chronicle Sport, Friday, that his hopes were dangling in the balance following the extension of the curfew and the country’s COVID-19 guidelines.Guyana has yet to even reopen their local gyms, yet alone stadiums, grounds and indoor facilities, since March and Nedd was hopeful of something positive happening following the pandemic’s aftermath. He said things are currently quiet within the community due to the extension of lockdown.“Nothing is going on at the moment in the volleyball fraternity. We are all hoping for this pandemic to subside and maybe be controlled, because our team and players haven’t done anything as of late,” stated the senior national coach.Cases continue to climb worldwide and Guyana has not been exempted from that as the death rate is on a low but continuous spike. Looking at the possibilities of anything meagre even occurring within his sport’s guild sometime in the near future, Nedd explained that it is all based on the outcome of the lockdown regulations and if venues or live sports are allowed to return.“We are awaiting certain decisions to be made and once that is up and running we will have an idea on what we can do going forward. In the meantime, we are keeping in steady contact with the Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) as we’ll all go through this and await things to return to normal,” he added.The GVF president also added that once all of the federation’s plans are streamlined and the future is known, he would like to have an audience with the Minister of Sport post-COVID-19; as to further map a way forward to develop the sport.For now, Nedd said the local players remain in high spirits despite not being able to group or play together. He noted that he, the players and coaches have been keeping close since the pandemic broke.He was pleased to know that his ballers were vigorously training and working on their power and jumping techniques, keeping their form while they await some good news.last_img read more

Cricket News Sreesanth’s life-time ban reduced to 7 years, here’s when he will be eligible to return to cricket

first_imgNew Delhi: In a big relief to Indian cricketer S Sreesanth, BCCI Ombudsman DK Jain has said that his ban for alleged spot-fixing will end next August.BCCI Ombudsman DK Jain observed on Tuesday that the pacer is well past his prime having already served six years of ban. BCCI had banned Sreesanth for life in August 2013 for indulging in alleged spot-fixing in the India Premier League (IPL).The Supreme Court set aside the BCCI disciplinary committee’s order this year.According to ANI, Jain passed an order on August 7 saying “ends of justice” would be met by making it a seven-year suspension and letting him play next year.”For Mr Sreesanth, who is now in his late thirties, his prime years as a Cricketer, particularly as a fast bowler may already be over,” Jain reasoned in his order.”I am of the view that banning Mr Sreesanth from participating in any kind of commercial Cricket or from associating with any activities of the BCCI or its affiliates, for a period of seven years with effect from 13.09.2013, i.e. the date from which, the period of ban imposed by the Disciplinary Committee had commenced, will meet the ends of justice,” Jain said in the order.There were allegations that Rs 10 lakh was paid to Sreesanth for conceding 14 runs in his second over in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match between the Rajasthan Royals and the Kings XI Punjab at Mohali in May 2013.Sreesanth has all along maintained that the allegations are false and he is innocent.The Kerala crickter played 27 Tests, 53 ODIs and 10 T20 Internationals for India, claiming 169 wickets in all. He last played for India back in 2011. He is part of one of the most memorable moments of Indian cricket as he took the match-winning catch in the World T20 final in 2007.
