New Mexico Highlands University To Help Develop Statewide Early Childhood Learning Needs AssessmentNew Mexico Highlands University To Help Develop Statewide Early Childhood Learning Needs Assessment

first_img“Participants will be invited to in-person forums through existing partnerships and active organizations,” Jiménez-Latham said. Patricia Jiménez-Latham is the director of the Center for the Education and Study of Diverse Populations at Highlands. Jiménez-Latham said the forums will get input from a wide variety of community stakeholders including parents, tribal leaders, early childhood providers, early learning associations, councils, coalitions, educators, higher education faculty, and others. Jiménez-Latham said the project for the community conversations begins in August 2019 and continues through October 2019. She said the final report is due in mid-December 2019. The New Mexico Early Childhood Development Partnership contracted with CESDP to help develop the State of New Mexico’s Early Learning Needs Assessment and Strategic Plan. Noble also wrote that the needs assessment will gather information and data of the current early learning challenges statewide as well as ideas and recommendations for improvement strategies. “The communities selected to engage in the community forums include Las Cruces, Deming, Alamogordo, Roswell, Hobbs, Socorro, Albuquerque, Gallup, Española, Las Vegas and Farmington, as well as several New Mexico tribal communities,” Jiménez-Latham said. “The Center for the Education and Study of Diverse Populations at Highlands is working with the Native American Budget and Policy Institute at the University of New Mexico to facilitate 11 statewide community conversations in communities including New Mexico tribal communities,” Jiménez-Latham said. “CESDP’s role is to lead the facilitation process to ensure a culturally-sensitive and equitable approach in forums as well as conduct one-on-one interviews as part of the Early Childhood Needs Assessment Process.” NMHU News: LAS VEGAS, NM ― The Center for the Education and Study of Diverse Populations at New Mexico Highlands University will play a lead role in developing a statewide early childhood learning needs assessment.

Walk Back In Time At The Hill TheaterWalk Back In Time At The Hill Theater

first_imgCB FOX nee The Hill Theater c.1952, consistant with the movie on the marquee, Carbine Williams that opened around that time. Courtesy/Fox family By DAVE FOXCB FOXThe Hill Theater marquee helps put the photo date at about 1952-53, because the movie on the marquee, Carbine Williams starring Jimmy Stewart, was produced and introduced to audiences around that time.There are no “as built” architectural plans, but the movie theater lasted only a couple of years, after which the AEC decided it wanted to get out of the merchandise business, which it had operated as a PX, from a location immediately across the street from the Hill Theater. Since there was already another movie theater building (theater #2), The Hill Theater was reconfigured as a department store, operated first as Hubbard’s Department Store, we understand.Hubbard’s lasted approximately one year, then sold out to Spear’s Department Store, which after about two years sold its merchandise, fixtures and the building itself to Clement & Benner Department Store in 1959. Clement & Benner was bought by CB FOX in 1979 and so is celebrating its 40 year now.The AEC had a small office that was roughly directly above the right end of the marquee. The second floor was all offices. The AEC office was the only one with a skylight, which is today right above the desk in the Furniture Department.Human interest story — In 1979, immediately after CB FOX had bought the merchandise and fixtures that comprised the Clement & Benner Dept. Store, a retired Zia Company employee named Carl Notrott told me that he’ d been the purchasing agent responsible for placing the order for the tremendous volume of concrete it took to level what had been the well-sloped movie theater floor. He said the concrete truck that showed up pumped yards and yards and yards of the stuff – at 10 cents a yard. Carl couldn’t remember how many cubic yards that was, but he did “warn me” to “take good care of my floor”. (Where the steps from the rear entry meet the Women’s Department floor the concrete is about five feet thick.)The Gordons Summer Concert c.1990 in front of CB FOX department store on Central Avenue.

Udall, Bennet Introduce Major Resolution To Set National Conservation Goal: Conserve 30% Of U.S. Lands And Ocean By 2030Udall, Bennet Introduce Major Resolution To Set National Conservation Goal: Conserve 30% Of U.S. Lands And Ocean By 2030

first_imgU.S. SENATE News: The Udall-Bennet Thirty by Thirty Resolution to Save Nature will establish a national goal of conserving at least 30 percent of the land and 30 percent of the ocean within the territory of the United States by 2030 by:Working with federal agencies, local communities, Indian Tribes, States, and private landowners to conserve natural places and resources under their control;Including public incentives for private landowners to voluntarily conserve and protect areas of demonstrated conservation value and with a high capacity to sequester carbon and greenhouse gas emissions;Improving access to nature for all people in the United States, including for communities of color and economically disadvantaged communities;Using land and ocean of the United States to sequester and store carbon;Focusing work at a large-landscape scale that is biologically and ecologically meaningful;Preventing extinction by recovering and restoring animal and plant species;Stabilizing ecosystems and the services of ecosystems, restoring degraded ecosystems, and maintaining ecological functions; andIncreasing economic opportunities for farmers, ranchers, fishermen, and foresters. “As I travel to every corner of my state, I hear from diverse communities about the importance of preserving the remarkable land and waters that have made Oregon the incredible place it is,” Merkley said. “Maintaining our ecosystems is essential to the quality of life and the economic vitality of communities across Oregon and America, and we have a moral responsibility to leave a healthy, habitable environment behind for our children and our children’s children. This resolution emphasizes the importance of that duty, and reaffirms our commitment to the conservation efforts we need to implement right now in order to protect our most treasured places for generations to come.” “To slow the loss of nature in America, we need the kind of national leadership and vision that this resolution provides,” said Matt Lee-Ashley, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. “Establishing a national goal of conserving 30% of America’s lands and oceans by 2030 would provide much-needed support and encouragement to communities across the country that are working to protect our lands, waters, and wildlife for future generations.” “It’s our moral obligation to leave future generations with an inhabitable planet. If we are to take this commitment seriously, we must ensure that we prioritize the conservation of our nation’s land and water. I’m proud to stand with my Senate colleagues to introduce the 30 By 30 Resolution to protect our planet for years to come,” Durbin said. “We are defined by the wildlife and wild places we leave behind for future generations. Senator Udall and Senator Bennet’s resolution underscores not only the urgency of conserving and restoring our public lands, wildlife habitat, and natural spaces, but also the urgency this moment,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “Recovering wildlife populations and conserving public lands is the best way we can not only safeguard our outdoor heritage and strengthen our outdoor recreation economy, but also transcend political partisanship and deliver for the American people.” The continental United States loses a football field’s worth of natural areas every 30 seconds due to human activity. This loss of nature—accelerated by climate change—is a threat to the nation’s health and prosperity, affecting communities’ clean air, water, and defenses against severe weather, floods, and wildfires. To curb wildlife extinctions, fight climate change, reduce toxic pollution, and safeguard healthy natural systems, the United States must confront the conservation and climate crises head-on. Udall and Bennet’s Resolution, “The Thirty by Thirty Resolution to Save Nature,” is supported by a number of organizations including the Center for American Progress, League of Conservation Voters, National Wildlife Federation, National Parks Conservation Association, Wilderness Society, Campaign for Nature, Sierra Club, GreenLatinos, The Nature Conservancy, Marine Conservation Institute, Mountain Pact, Hispanic Access Foundation, and Oceana. A full list of supporting organizations can be found HERE. “The United States is facing a climate crisis that has already led to damaged oceans, newly extinct species, and ecosystems in distress. In order to ensure our planet is healthy and hospitable for our children and grandchildren, we must commit ourselves to bold land and ocean conservation efforts,” Harris said. “I’m proud to join my colleagues in calling on the United States to set a goal of conserving at least 30 percent of the land and ocean in our country by 2030. It’s our responsibility to take action before it’s too late.” “Just over 50 years ago, my father, Stewart Udall, sounded the alarm about the quiet loss of nature. Back then, in a few short years, our nation drastically deepened its commitment to the land and waters that sustain us by creating some of our most successful conservation programs. But today, the crisis is even more dire – and we need to meet it with the urgency it requires. That’s why I’m proud to introduce the Thirty by Thirty Resolution to Save Nature,” Udall said. “Globally, one million species are at risk of extinction – many within decades — as a result of factors like habitat destruction and climate change. These species are critical to our rich natural inheritance and our economic success. Now, there’s no question that we must, at a minimum, undo the environmental damage caused by the Trump administration. But let’s be clear: humans are destroying nature at a devastating rate. Only reversing the Trump administration’s wreckage would be like be applying a band-aid to a life-threatening wound. We must write a new playbook to address the climate and nature crises. We must set a national goal of protecting and restoring 30 percent of our lands and ocean by 2030 to stem the collapse of our natural world. This is the mass mobilization we need – the collective action that will save the planet.” The Udall-Bennet Thirty by Thirty Resolution to Save Nature recognizes that nature – like climate change – has reached a tipping point. The resolution responds to a growing group of scientists, who say that conserving at least 30% of the ocean and land by 2030 is the minimum step necessary to adequately address the extinction, climate, and biodiversity crisis. In addition to Udall and Bennet, the resolution is cosponsored by U.S. Senators Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.). “We can’t address climate change without focusing on conservation,” Bennet said. “Committing to conserving 30 percent of America’s land and oceans by 2030 is exactly the kind of ambitious strategy we need to protect our wildlife and lands, and tackle this urgent crisis. Setting an aggressive, tangible conservation and climate goal has been a long-standing priority of mine, and I could not have asked for a better partner to advance this legislation. That’s why I am thrilled to be leading this resolution with Senator Udall today.” WASHINGTON, D.C. — Tuesday, U.S. Senators Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) introduced a major Senate resolution to set a national goal of conserving at least 30 percent of the land and 30 percent of the ocean within the territory of the United States by 2030. “We thank Senators Udall, Bennet and the rest of the supporters of this resolution for demonstrating visionary leadership and urging the United States government to commit to this bold, necessary conservation goal,” said Alex Taurel, Conservation Program Director at the League of Conservation Voters. “With one million species at risk of extinction and the continental United States losing a football field of natural area to development every 30 seconds, it’s clear that we’re in the midst of a crisis of nature that threatens humans as much as it does wildlife. We desperately need to preserve more of the Earth in its natural state. It’s time for the U.S. government to listen to the science and preserve 30% of our land and oceans by 2030.” “As the damage caused by climate change continues to grow, we must set achievable benchmarks to reduce pollution and protect our environment. Conserving 30 percent of our lands and oceans over the next 30 years will do just that — and will help ensure that future generations can enjoy America’s natural beauty. I’m proud to join my colleagues in introducing this resolution, and I will continue working to address climate change through meaningful action across the board,” Van Hollen said. Udall announced the resolution at the Center for American Progress event entitled ‘Confronting the Nature Crisis: A Discussion. U.S. Representative Deb Haaland (D-N.M.), and journalist Elizabeth Shogren joined Udall for the discussion on the extinction and conservation crisis.
