A letter on the district's Web site detailed the early release and said, "The best information we have is that there is no immediate risk to our community and there is no cause for alarm."
Health officials said the schools could stay open, but Shand made the decision to keep the kids home.
"We really wanted to be proactive and felt like it would not hurt to keep the kids home for a couple days," she said. "I don't believe there's reason to panic. We're taking all the measures we can."
Parker, considered to be the Diamondbacks' No. 1 prospect by Baseball America, left the California League after just four starts. But it was a dominant four-start performance by Parker.
Parker (1-0) ranks second in the Cal League in earned run average (0.95) and is among league leaders with 21 strikeouts. Opposing hitters were hitting well under .200 against Parker, who allowed 12 hits in 19 innings.
Tayler and the others rushed to the railing and also saw what he described as five or six men sitting in a roofless pirate boat. One started climbing a rope to the deck beneath them. "He was already halfway up," says Tayler. One passenger screamed: "Pirates!"
Without hesitation, passengers began to grab whatever they could find around them. "We immediately began throwing tables and deck chairs at the rope," said Tayler.

I could not help but be dismayed by the news that Notre Dame also planned to award the president an honorary degree. This, as you must know, was in disregard of the U.S. bishops' express request of 2004 that Catholic institutions "should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles" and that such persons "should not be given awards, honors or platforms which would suggest support for their actions." That request, which in no way seeks to control or interfere with an institution's freedom to invite and engage in serious debate with whomever it wishes, seems to me so reasonable that I am at a loss to understand why a Catholic university should disrespect it.
There is a sense of chaos in the other hospitals and we do not know what to do. Staff are starting to leave and many are opting to retire or apply for holidays. The truth is that mortality is even higher than what is being reported by the authorities, at least in the hospital where I work it. It is killing three to four patients daily, and it has been going on for more than three weeks. It is a shame and there is great fear here. Increasingly younger patients aged 20 to 30 years are dying before our helpless eyes
I work as a resident doctor in one of the biggest hospitals in Mexico City and sadly, the situation is far from "under control". As a doctor, I realise that the media does not report the truth. Authorities distributed vaccines among all the medical personnel with no results, because two of my partners who worked in this hospital (interns) were killed by this new virus in less than six days even though they were vaccinated as all of us were. The official number of deaths is 20, nevertheless, the true number of victims are more than 200.Click on the link to read more from the actual folks down there... lots of canceled public events, lots of military presence.
The idea of brain plasticity has been discovered and forgotten many times over the centuries. The ancient Greeks accepted the idea, with Socrates believing that people could train their brains the way gymnasts train their bodies. Around the time of Galileo, the idea fell out of favour, as scientists began to see the world mechanistically, with each object, organ and even parts of an organ being attributed well-defined, unchanging roles. It was these ideas that led to the notion of our brains being "hardwired", an idea that today is steadily being overturned.Norman Doidge, a psychiatrist at the University of Toronto and author of the New York Times bestseller, The Brain That Changes Itself, says our ongoing belief that our brains are hardwired has held up medical progress. "Our best and brightest neuroscientists thought our brains were structured like complex machines, with each part performing one function in one location, and that had implications. If you were born with a part that was defective, and say it gave you a learning disorder, it meant there was nothing you could do, you had to learn to live with it. If you sustained a brain injury or had a stroke and part of your brain broke down, there was nothing you could do.
Otis' second career Player of the Week title was awarded after he extended his hitting streak to 14 games when he recorded hits in all six of Taylor's games. The Ossian, Indiana native recorded two hits in five out of six games to give him 15 multi-hit games this season.
For the week Otis batted .647 with a slugging percentage of .941. He had two doubles, one home run, crossed the plate seven times, and drove in ten runs as the Trojans completed a 4-2 week against Huntington University and Goshen College.
I think I'll send this to my Congressmen and Senators and ask them what they intend to do about it.
The government has identified 10 corridors of 100 to 600 miles in length with greatest promise for high-speed development.
They are: a northern New England line; an Empire line running east to west in New York State; a Keystone corridor running laterally through Pennsylvania; a southeast network connecting the District of Columbia to Florida and the Gulf Coast; a Gulf Coast line extending from eastern Texas to western Alabama; a corridor in central and southern Florida; a Texas-to-Oklahoma line; a California corridor where voters have already approved a line that will allow travel from San Francisco to Los Angeles in two and a half hours; and a corridor in the Pacific Northwest.
The phenomena that were common to these land were the increase in the political power of the nobility, and especially of the lesser nobility; the grants by princes to seigniors of jurisdictional authority over the peasants who lived on their properties; the adjustments of the seigniors to the secular trends of economic life; and the failure of the urban middle class to establish itself as an economic and political force. All of these factors helped to bring on serfdom.
The lords, armed with public powers, levied for their own use obligations originally imposed for the benefit of the prince, tightened the restrictions on the freedom of movement of their peasants, demanded increased amounts of goods and services from them, changed the terms of peasant tenures, and evicted peasants from their holdings to build up their own demesnes. Thus, through entirely legal means, the lords were able to set themselves up as despots of their villages, and to press their peasants into a condition of subjection and dependence upon them.
To acknowledge the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and to establish a commission to examine the institution of slavery, subsequently de jure and de facto racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans, and the impact of these forces on living African-Americans, to make recommendations to the Congress on appropriate remedies, and for other purposes.

Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.
Rightwing extremist chatter on the Internet continues to focus on the economy, the perceived loss of U.S. jobs in the manufacturing and construction sectors, and home foreclosures.
Many rightwing extremist groups perceive recent gun control legislation as a threat to their right to bear arms.
You might, for instance, take note of a recent clinical trial in which heart patients put on a restricted-sodium diet fared worse than those on a normal diet. In light of new research suggesting that eating salt improves mood and combats depression, you might be alert for psychological effects of the new diet. You might worry that people would react to less-salty food by eating more of it, a trend you could monitor by comparing them with a control group.But if you are the mayor of New York, no such constraints apply. You can simply announce, as Michael Bloomberg did, that the city is starting a "nationwide initiative" to pressure the food industry and restaurant chains to cut salt intake by half over the next decade. Why bother with consent forms when you can automatically enroll everyone in the experiment?
Many of the intrusions were detected not by the companies in charge of the infrastructure but by U.S. intelligence agencies, officials said. Intelligence officials worry about cyber attackers taking control of electrical facilities, a nuclear power plant or financial networks via the Internet.
Authorities investigating the intrusions have found software tools left behind that could be used to destroy infrastructure components, the senior intelligence official said. He added, "If we go to war with them, they will try to turn them on."
Officials said water, sewage and other infrastructure systems also were at risk.
"Over the past several years, we have seen cyberattacks against critical infrastructures abroad, and many of our own infrastructures are as vulnerable as their foreign counterparts," Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair recently told lawmakers. "A number of nations, including Russia and China, can disrupt elements of the U.S. information infrastructure."
One thing America has over these countries is really, really good, inventive programmers. If we haven't already, I think we should set them loose as cyber warriors... unleash our cyber hounds to hack China and Russia and whoever else we're worried about. One thing that has prevented China and Russia from trying to Nuke America is MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction). We need to make sure our enemies know that if our electric grid goes down because of them, their software systems will be destroyed as well. MAD: The Infrastructure Wars.
Career politicians are spending the country to near-bankruptcy as they feather their own nests, tighten their leash on our necks and pat us on the head. They take our money, bend it to their will, then return small portions of it at their discretion to make us feel it has all been worth it...
Washington is over $10 trillion in debt already. The Obama budget blueprint calls for adding another $9 trillion to that debt in the next 10 years. And the country is already facing untold trillions -- $60 trillion or more -- in Medicare and Social Security promises we've made to future retirees, money for which we have no identifiable source. Meanwhile, with the power to give out our money as they wish, congressmen take campaign money from lobbyists and industries they regulate.

I mean, why not decide how much defense contractors should be paid, regardless of contracts? They're taking federal money, aren't they? And aren't the Democats against pay based on performance when it comes to teachers because there are so many factors involved that aren't under the teachers' control? How is that different for a CEO or any executive?
Should Washington decide how well road construction crews are performing if federal dollars are involved? Whether police are getting paid too much since they've taken so much federal money? Should the Feds set the price of corn since farmers take federal money in subsidies? And if the President and the Democrat Congress push through universal health care -- won't they also get to decide how much each doctor, each nurse, each orderly deserves to be paid based on the political whims of a few hundred two-bit politicians who made it to the golden ring in Washington?
And why shouldn't the president and the treasury secretary in Washington decide how much pay Gov. Mitch Daniels or State Rep Jeff Espich or any other Indiana State workers get paid since Indiana took TARP funds? Why shouldn't President Obama, or some Senate committee in Washington decide whether our governor is performing well enough or should be removed from office?
If Washington decides pay and performance for banks and CEO's who take federal money, then they can, given incentive and a dark night to vote, control nearly every service, void nearly every contract, and decide who are good performers and who are bad throughout the country... With one glaring exception: Washington itself is above all that and woe to anyone who holds their feet to the fire of accountability.
Take a step back and bow to your Senate Lords.
Oh, he covered a bit, saying that he was joking (his voice was not changed at all, so it wasn't a joke) and that he meant, of course, a question from a non-American reporter... But where's the joke in an American acting like everyone else in the world is a foreigner? Do Europeans really find that funny? I think not.
You can bet that had this been Bush, it would have led the Tonight Show and Letterman and would never have been forgotten. Since it was a democrat, since it was Obama, just so, you can bet it will make no copy at all, on any network show.
