You’d think hosting sports legends would be a marketing boon for a restaurant. However, that was not the case at Bilboquet, an upscale French restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. According to Bleacher Report, NBA legend Dominique Wilkins was denied entry to the restaurant in May 2021. Following the incident, Wilkins took the restaurant to task on Twitter, saying the denial was not so much about his non-compliance with the restaurant’s dress code. because it was the color of his skin.

While the restaurant initially issued a statement denying the allegations, the post was later deleted. According to Fox5 Atlanta, an apology was later issued to the former Hawks star. The statement also said changes would be made to the restaurant’s dress code policy to minimize the subjective nature of its enforcement, and that staff would undergo diversity, equity and inclusion training.

Ultimately, the incident exposed the long and shameful history of how restaurants, schools, clubs and many other establishments have used dress codes to exclude marginalized groups of people by targeting clothing. usually associated with people of color (via Eater).

After nearly two months of wondering who in Illinois won one of the greatest lotteries in US history, the winners have come forward. The staggering jackpot of $1.34 billion may seem like the biggest amount ever won, but it’s actually number 3. The highest jackpots were $1.537 billion (in 2018) and $1.586 billion dollars (in 2016), according to PA News.

Some of the suggestions on what to do after learning you’ve won a big jackpot include:

  • Change your phone number
  • Wait a few months before making a big purchase like a new vehicle or a house
  • Most importantly, you should obtain legal and financial advisers immediately.

Personally, I can’t even begin to understand earning a sum of money that will change my life. This thought makes me nauseous. Maybe that’s why I rarely buy a Mega Millions or Power Ball ticket. In the past, I have thrown money with a group of people to buy tickets when the jackpot is monstrous or bought with another person, which is the story of the winners of 1.34 billion dollars.

SUMMARY OF WINNING TICKETS:

The $1.34 billion winning ticket was sold to a Speedway gas station in Des Plaines, Illinois. Mega Millions rules allow winners to remain anonymous when claiming their prize.

The winners, yes in the plural, nearly missed an important deadline that would have changed the way they collected their moolah. They were two weeks away from not being able to choose a one-time lump sum payment. (You can read more about this 60 day rule here.)

What do we know about the winners?

Their names, ages, place of residence or anything that makes them identifiable have not been disclosed. What is known is that two people claimed the prize in one sump. They will share the net amount of $780.5 millionwhich equates to a profit of $345,250,000.

Workers in low-paying jobs often have cash flow problems.

Because so many do not have access to credit or savings, a growing number who once depended on predatory lenders can now dip into their wages before payday through Earned Wage Access (EWA) .

“The potential for this model is huge, but the industry is still in its infancy,” reports Karan Bhasin, who interviewed three active EWA investors to learn more about where the industry is headed:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded Bipartisan Infrastructure Act (BIL) funding to the nation’s first 18 states for water infrastructure improvements on September 16.

BIL is allocating more than $50 billion to the EPA to repair the nation’s critical water supply infrastructure, helping communities access clean, safe and reliable drinking water, build resilience, collect and treating wastewater to protect public health, clean up pollution and protect vital waterways.

More than $1.1 billion in capital grants from funding has been awarded to 18 states through the State Revolving Funds (SRFs), with additional capital grants to come. The grants mark the first major distribution of funds for water infrastructure. State allocations were previously announced.

“All communities need access to clean, reliable, and safe water,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “Thanks to the leadership of President Biden and the resources of the historic bipartisan Infrastructure Act, we are repairing aging water infrastructure, replacing lead service lines, cleaning up contaminants, and making our communities more resilient to flooding and climate impacts. .”

“President Biden has been clear: we can’t leave any community behind as we rebuild America’s infrastructure with the bipartisan Infrastructure Act,” said White House Infrastructure Coordinator Mitch Landrieu. “Because of its bipartisan Infrastructure Act, nearly half of the SRF’s incremental funding will now be in the form of grants or forgivable loans, making it easier to access these critical water resources for small, rural and disadvantaged communities. .”

EPA’s SRFs are part of President Biden’s Justice40 initiative, which aims to deliver at least 40% of the benefits of select federal programs to underserved communities. In addition, nearly half of the funding available through SRFs is to be principal forgiveness grants or loans that remove barriers to investing in critical water infrastructure in underserved communities across the country. rural America and in urban centers.

The EPA has awarded SRF capital grants to 18 states, including: Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia.

The funding announced today represents FY22 rewards for states that submitted and received EPA approval for their funding utilization plans. Capital grants will continue to be awarded, on a rolling, state-by-state basis, as more states receive approval throughout FY22; states will also receive awards over the next four years. Once the grants are awarded, state programs will begin providing the funds in the form of grants and loans to communities in their state.

BIL presents the biggest financing opportunity ever to invest in water infrastructure. To learn more about these infrastructure funding programs and other programs that help communities manage their water resources, visit the EPA’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law page.

Biden navigates student debt forgiveness policy on campaign trail https://arizonaheli.com/biden-navigates-student-debt-forgiveness-policy-on-campaign-trail/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 10:35:00 +0000 https://arizonaheli.com/biden-navigates-student-debt-forgiveness-policy-on-campaign-trail/ OXON HILL, Md. — The liberal lobbying campaign on President Joe Biden to write off federal student loan debt has been immense, with his executive action last month underscoring the importance of energizing the base of disenchanted Democratic activists ahead of November’s midterm elections. .

OXON HILL, Md. — The liberal lobbying campaign on President Joe Biden to write off federal student loan debt has been immense, with his executive action last month underscoring the importance of energizing the base of disenchanted Democratic activists ahead of November’s midterm elections. .

But Biden appears to be selective when mentioning his long-awaited move as Republicans strive to frame the move as an elite debt bailout.

SENATE MARRIAGE BILL COULD COMPLICATE ATTACKS AT SUPREME COURT BY ‘MAGA’ DEMOCRATS

Data from the JPMorgan Chase Institute indicates that Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan will benefit wealthy families more than poor families, although low-income and minority households are more likely to see the extent of their debt forgiven . At the same time, Republicans cite Gallup figures showing that inflation is causing financial hardship for the majority of the public.

“Joe Biden has bailed out wealthy college graduates but is reluctant to mention it,” Republican National Committee spokesman Will O’Grady said. Washington Examiner. “Could it be because his bailout is hugely unpopular and out of touch? Or is it because it is unfair to those who have chosen a different path or who have already repaid their loans? Or because it fuels an already galloping inflation?

“Either way, this ‘victory’ reveals who Joe Biden really is: an out-of-touch career politician who doesn’t give a damn about working Americans,” O’Grady added.

The White House did not respond to questions about why Biden did not mention his student loan forgiveness plan during his Labor Day campaign in the battleground states of Pennsylvania and of Wisconsin — and in the relatively working-class towns of Pittsburgh and Milwaukee, where the president has bolstered labor relations in the past. Biden had referenced it the previous week during his first midterm rally in the Democratic stronghold of Maryland.

Berwood Yost, director of Franklin & Marshall College’s Center for Opinion Research in Pennsylvania, said polls he analyzed showed a “slight majority” approved of Biden’s plan in his state. At the same time, opinions are “very different across political parties” and independent voters are “about evenly split on this,” according to Yost.

“I think the political calculus is that this is an issue that the president has spoken about during his campaign, and I imagine he expects this to be a way for him to excite his grassroots voters in the hope that they will support the Democrats during the fall campaign,” he said.

“In Pennsylvania so far, no Senate candidate has mentioned it, so I don’t know what role it will play here,” Yost continued.

Although Biden didn’t mention his plan to forgive student loan debt in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin last week, party officials at the Democratic National Committee’s summer meeting didn’t seem to hesitate.

White House digital strategy director Rob Flaherty was praised at the DNC executive committee meeting for his team’s social media defense of Biden’s student loan debt forgiveness plan against Republican critics comparing it to GOP lawmakers’ endorsement of former President Donald Trump’s pandemic. Paycheck Protection Program.

Flaherty told the DNC’s most influential figures on Friday that the effort generated “about 20 million” social media impressions, not including media attention. The Biden campaign alum described grassroots Democrats’ desire to counter Republican attacks more vigorously, especially ahead of the midterm cycle.

A day earlier, DNC President Jaime Harrison told the Youth Council that Biden’s forgiveness of $10,000 in student loan debt for borrowers earning less than $125,000 a year and $20,000 $ for eligible Pell Grant recipients was the first of “many more steps forward.” Harrison’s comments acknowledge that while Biden’s plan will bring relief, liberals, such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), have called for a remission of debt of $50,000.

“Do we need to do more? Should we do more? Yes. And we will,” he said. “We need at least two or three additional new US senators. We need to maintain our majority in the House of Representatives.”

The Pennsylvania Senate campaign is tilting Democratic as the party seeks to expand a majority that relies on Vice President Kamala Harris’ decisive vote, according to the Bake the political report. But Wisconsin, along with Arizona, Georgia and Nevada, are considered Senate races, according to the same election tipster. The House is more of a challenge for Democrats as the party currently only has a four-seat advantage over Republicans. Twenty-four Democrats, compared to eight Republicans, are believed to be participating in coin tossing contests.

Religious schools can get an automatic exemption from Title IX non-discrimination requirements and continue to receive federal funding for meals, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.

Private and public schools participate in the National School Lunch Program, which funds meals for millions of students across the country.

In May, the USDA announced that schools participating in the NSLP must create policies prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation.

But after lawsuits from a religious school and conservative-run states, the USDA clarified Aug. 12 that religious schools participating in the NSLP can continue to allow discrimination against LGBTQ students and staff.

“USDA regulations do not require a religious educational institution to submit a written application for a Title IX exemption in order to claim this exemption,” the memo reads.

The controversy stems from debates around Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs. Unlike the Trump administration, the Biden administration has interpreted Title IX to also prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.



The USDA announcement in May is consistent with Biden’s interpretation.

“State and local agencies, program operators, and sponsors who receive funding from [the Food and Nutrition Service] must investigate allegations of discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation,” read a May 5 press release.

“These organizations should also update their policies and non-discrimination signs to include prohibitions against discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.”

On July 26, twenty-two states signed a lawsuit against the USDA policy. Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita, who led the lawsuit alongside Tennessee Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III, claimed the Biden administration was denying food to low-income students unless ” schools do not respond to orders from the left”.



The states that signed the lawsuit are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas , Utah, Virginia and West Virginia.

Grant Park Christian Academy, a religious school in Florida, also filed a lawsuit in late July seeking an exemption from the non-discrimination rules.

According to Alliance Defending Freedom, which has been designated an anti-LGBTQ hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the school received its exemption nine days after filing its complaint.


Now, religious schools receive this exemption without having to apply, although the USDA memo in August clarified that a school can submit a written request for recognition of its exemption if it wishes.

The good news for President Biden and his party is that they came out of August much better than they started. The bad news is that they are now well aware of this fact, but mostly unaware of the reasons.

The two flattering deceptions that are most irresistible in politics are 1) our side lost because we were too virtuous and didn’t want to lie, cheat and steal like the other guys, and 2) our side wins because the voters love us. really.

The Republican Party has been muzzling the former for nearly two years and is therefore unable to articulate a message about the future or temper the more somber and angry voices within the GOP. For most of the same period, Democrats struggled with the second self-deception. In our age of intense negative partisanship, voters are more likely to vote versus a candidate or a party rather than for their. This was especially the case in 2020, when the race was a referendum on the suitability of the incumbent. donald trump lost this election far more than Biden won it.

But since then, Democrats have struggled to understand that their party’s only discernible mandate was to stop the crazed cavitation of the Trump era. Surprise victories in Georgia’s Senate runoff election gave Democrats the Senate and stoked party complacency vibes, and helped obscure the truth: that Georgia and other red states weren’t getting so much more progressives that they rejected republican kookism. The result was a mostly wasted year of internal Democratic debates over progressive priorities, even as swing voters made it clear they were primarily concerned about inflation and public safety.

ASU Students and Alumni Respond to Student Debt Cancellation https://arizonaheli.com/asu-students-and-alumni-respond-to-student-debt-cancellation/ Wed, 31 Aug 2022 02:08:00 +0000 https://arizonaheli.com/asu-students-and-alumni-respond-to-student-debt-cancellation/ President Joe Biden unveiled his administration’s plan for student loan forgiveness on Aug. 24, prompting a mixed reaction from current and former ASU students who have taken out loans to fund their education.

President Joe Biden unveiled his administration’s plan for student loan forgiveness on Aug. 24, prompting a mixed reaction from current and former ASU students who have taken out loans to fund their education.

The Department of Education will provide up to $20,000 in assistance for Pell Grant recipients and up to $10,000 for non-Pell Grant recipients who earn less than $125,000 per year, or 250 $000 for married couples.

Although the announcement drew praise and enthusiasm from many student borrowers, some were frustrated that they were not eligible for the relief. Brett Holzhauer, an ASU alumnus who graduated in 2015, said he felt the pardon was unfair to those who did not qualify for federal student loans and had to turn to private loans to pay for their education.

“I went ahead and tried to apply through the FAFSA, and my parents were ‘making too much money,'” Holzhauer said. “So I was left to my own devices in terms of funding my studies.”

Holzhauer said he took out $72,000 in private student loans for his undergraduate journalism degree, but has since paid off that balance to $5,350. He expects to be debt free by the end of the year.

“It’s so ironic in my personal situation that right now I have $5,350 left in student loans,” he said. “So if I had federal student loans, my student loans (would) run out, but that’s not the case because I was locked out because of my parents’ income, which had no direct correlation to my situation.”

However, Holzhauer said it was “wise” to offer more forgiveness to Pell Grant recipients. According to Department of Education data, Arizona had 884,400 federal student loan borrowers in March 2022, with the Education Data Initiative reporting an average of nearly 242,000 Pell Grant recipients each year receiving an average of $3,900. .

For Breanna Wandrych, a graduate student in social work, the cancellation of student debt is welcome. Wandrych received a full scholarship for his undergraduate degree at ASU, but had to take out $30,000 loans for his graduate studies.

“For me, $10,000 is important, it’s about a third of my total amount, which, in fact, will give me the future freedom to make career decisions based on my own goals rather than to make employment decisions based on another payment,” Wandrych says.

Additionally, Wandrych was thrilled to hear about the administration’s plans to cut interest rates on federal loans. The new plan will cap undergraduate student loan payments at 5% of the borrower’s income, avoiding higher payments due to high interest rates.

“This is hopefully a first step towards stopping the very high interest rates that have really crushed people,” Wandrych said. “Yes, the student loan is a beast in itself, but it’s really those high interest rates that affect people more than anything else.”

Before aid, first-year resident undergraduate students at ASU pay approximately $12,700 per year in tuition and fees. According to ASU admissions data, students receive an average of about $10,000 a year in gift aid, work-study, and on-campus jobs. ASU’s Financial Aid and Scholarship Services office did not respond to a request for comment.

Tommy St Clair, a former ASU student who dropped out due to the high cost of education, among other factors, said he had a more mixed reaction to the debt forgiveness. St Clair has $3,000 federal student loan debt that will now be forgiven, but her brother wasn’t so lucky.

“I have a brother who has student debt around six figures and we live together too, so I saw the flip side, where he was forgiven but he still has those six figures (left)” , did he declare. . “So it was very bittersweet because it was basically a good thing, but I felt like more could have been done.”

However, St Clair, who was studying graphic information technology, said knowing his student debt would be forgiven gave him more incentive to return to school – now with a clean slate.

“I feel like I’m able to do a real race rather than a test race like my freshman year was,” St Clair said.

According to the Deputy Director of the National Economic Council, a request for debt forgiveness will be available in early October. Applicants are encouraged to apply by November 15 to receive relief before the student loan repayment break ends on December 31.

In the meantime, borrowers can sign up for Ministry of Education updates on loan forgiveness through its subscription page.

PHOENIX (AP) — An Arizona judge has ordered three Republicans, including appointed Secretary of State Mark Finchem and U.S. Representative Paul Gosar, to pay $75,000 in attorney fees for filing a libel suit against a former Democratic lawmaker “primarily for the purpose of harassment. ”

Republicans filed a lawsuit last year against former Democratic state Rep. Charlene Fernandez after she called for an investigation into their role in the Jan. 6 uprising on the U.S. Capitol. The judge dismissed the lawsuit in April, saying Fernandez’s claim was protected by First Amendment rights to free speech and government petition.
