The Keystone XL Pipeline and the Miseries Following It
– The Keystone XL Pipeline and the Miseries Following It It is well-known throughout the country that oil prices keep rising and rising and in a highly-developed country that is in need of oil for various reasons there are people who are willing to do essentially anything in order to get that considerably needed oil in any way, shape, or form. However, when it comes having something as destructive as a tar sands oil pipeline, the United States should not authorize the Keystone XL Pipeline to import tar sands oil from Canada because it can subsequently be threatening to our environment, economy, and especially to our health….
An Extension of the Keystone Pipeline Should Be Approved
– An extension to the current Keystone Pipeline, which transports crude oil from Alberta, Montana, and North Dakota to refineries in Oklahoma, has been proposed. The Keystone XL will create an 875-mile pipeline infrastructure that would allow delivery of up to 830,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil from Alberta, Canada, and the Bakken Shale Formation in the United States to Steele City, Nebraska and onward to Cushing, Oklahoma, and refineries in the Gulf Coast (EIS, 2013).

School Superintendent’s Plan

In order to do this you must begin with open and honest communication. Communication involves listening and learning as much, if not more so, than it implies talking. In developing a successful relationship with a new school board I would immediately begin setting up meetings with the individual board members so that I could get to know each of them personally in an effort to build both social and human capital…. ;
Reflection of Shadowing the Superintendent of Maplewood School District
– I had the pleasure of being able to shadow Superintendent Shirley Hall of the Maplewood School District. Ms. Hall took the reins of the district over in 2012 from a very popular superintendent who was credited with making great strides within the district. Although Ms. Hall had very large shoes to fill, she seems to be doing it with grace and enthusiasm. She credits the previous superintendent with making systemic changes and establishing the overall forward momentum of the district, but recognizes that she cannot rest on past success…. ;
