Norton pushes Washington DC Union Station redevelopment funding as a priority for Congress

"Eleanor Holmes Norton wants redeveloping and expanding Union station to be a priority for Congress. The union station expansion project is estimated to cost between 5.8 and $7.5 billion and Norton says Congress should put aside funding for it when considering the upcoming build back better infrastructure plan. The plan is estimated to have about $1 trillion for transportation projects and letters. Transportation Secretary Pete Buddha Judge Norton said that since Union Station is federally owned, and President Joe Biden has emphasized the need for greater investment in high speed rail that the project should be considered for funding in the plan. The union station revamp includes plans for new platforms, a new parking garage, a new bus facility and new retail and office space. Valerie Bonked

"Copper Beech Drive in Rock Creek Park has been closed to cars for most of the pandemic, creating a paradise for bikers, walkers and runners. Could that be permanent at an online Q and a session hosted by D. C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, Rock Creek Park Superintendent Julia Washburn was asked about keeping up her beach drive closed to cars. We do plan when the city returns to Is four, which is normal operations for the city. The plan currently is to reopen. However, Washburn says there's been a lot of discussion among D C leaders about this and her agency is willing to listen. If it is permanently closed, there would have to be some plan for the more than 5000 cars a day that used the roadway prior to the pandemic. Kyle

Bill is back to make Washington, DC 51st state — still faces high hurdle in Senate

"The license plates for D C. Residents read in big, bold letters and taxation without representation. It's a rallying cry against D. C is the lack of direct voting power in the U. S. Congress as NPR's Barbara Sprint reports. Statehood advocates are hopeful that what was once seen as a liberal pipe dream is now gaining traction. 30 years ago, delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton first introduced a bill for Washington D. C. Statehood. She's back at it, and this time, she says, it feels different. We've gotten off of the wish list, too. On approach of a new reality. Norton says she's encouraged by national polls that suggest growing support for statehood and the record number of co sponsors. The House legislation and its Senate counterpart, have Her bill, which strength the size of the federal district and admit the remaining area as the nation's 51st state. But Republicans stand universally opposed, arguing it would take a constitutional amendment to admit D. C as a state. Here's Georgia Congressman Jody Hice during today's House oversight hearing, the Democratic Party attempting a political power grab of obtaining more senators, that's entirely what this is all about. That phrase power grab is a constant and GOP messaging on statehood, referring to the fact that the district votes overwhelmingly for Democrats and would likely elect two Democratic senators. But Norton tells NPR that at its core statehood is not about politics while we're looking for is equality with other Americans, especially since we pay the highest federal taxes per capita in the United States, she notes that D C has a population of over 700,000 residents larger than Wyoming and Vermont. Last year when the House first past Norton's bill, Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, dismissed that point. Wyoming is a well rounded working class state. New state of Washington would not be. It was a barb that stung many residents in the district, including business owner Deana Dorsey Calloway. You can't see me, but I'm having an emotional reaction. The eyes are watering probably hear my voice quivering of it, because Just it's disgusting. It's you're a sure of an entire population of people here in Washington, advocates argue statehood is also a civil rights issue, as most of DC's residents are minorities. We do believe this is one of the most important racial justice fights of our time that stash a Rhodes, campaign manager of 51 for 51, a statehood campaign from our perspective, leaving 700,000 mostly black and brown residents without a vote in Congress is racism. D C. Residents pay federal taxes and serve in the military but have no voting Congress. This is an injustice and honestly a stain on American democracy. Norton's bill is all but guaranteed passage in the House. There's broad support from Democrats in the Senate and the White House. But there's a road block. The Senate has a big brick wall in front of its called the Filibusters that house bills are passing and slamming right into. That's Ellie's up Nick of Fix our Senate, a campaign focused on eliminating the legislative filibuster, which requires a 60 senator threshold to advance most bills. Not all Senate Democrats are on board with eliminating the maneuver, arguing it's meant to protect the minority party. But unless that brick wall is eliminated or changed, D C statehood goes back to being on the Democratic wish list.

"The House Committee on Oversight and Reform is hearing arguments on a bill to establish Washington D. C. As the 51st State MPR's Jen Newman reports, the effort faces long odds with significant Republican opposition. The bill would create the state of Washington, D. C, which would stand for Douglas Commonwealth named for Frederick Douglass. Eleanor Holmes Norton, who represents the district in Congress, as a nonvoting delegate. Says the more than 700,000 people who live in D C deserve representation. Do you think pays more federal taxes for capita than any state any state already in the union, the country's 51st state would consist of 66 out of the 68 square miles of the present day federal district. The remaining two square miles would be turned into a new capital and consist of the major federal buildings and monuments. The measure faces strong opposition by Republicans, who argue it Attempt by Democrats to gain more seats in Congress. Genuine NPR

How Cheat Meals Can Add Extra Fat Cells

"If you eat the calorie deficit all week and then have a cheat meal. Will you gain fat cells and is that considered yo yo dieting. Okay so yo yo. Dieting is more of Extremely strict restriction and then kind of an extreme bulk yo-yo dieting for more to kind of dysfunctional eating. Now she meals can fall in that category. I hate using that term cheat meal because it encourages this kind of on the wagon off the wagon mentality which tends to turn into dysfunctional leading. So what i tend to do. Is i tell the tell. I tend to tell people you're going to be on this deficit and then once a week we're gonna have you in a surplus rather than saying it's a cheat meal now. The science on this actually supports the metabolism boosting effects and the muscle preserving effects of doing this. In fact it was one study where they compared people who were on a continual deficit to people who were on a deficit and with some intermittent periods where they would eat more calories and they found that jumping the calories up here and they're actually resulted in more fat loss and less muscle loss bodybuilders of known this for a long time And i've seen this with people that i've worked with that being said this is a controlled environment in a controlled amount of surplus. Which i think more to the point of this question is what. I think how people are using it now. It's like oh. I'm in this. I follow my diet. You know six days a week. And i'm in this calorie deficits hundred a day. And then sunday's i can eat whatever i want you know and then and i think it's. It's turned into this thing where you know not counting. I'm off. I follow this weeks. All eat like an asshole. I you know and so and into that. Yes you could. I mean we talked about this with Lane norton lane came in.

The school is located near the capital, and students want that fencing to come down. The kids used her visit to practice their persuasive writing to push for the fences to be removed and allow their neighborhood to return to normal. Norton says she enjoyed meeting with the future leaders and strongly opposes the permanent fencing at the complex. She says she'll continue to do her part to make sure that doesn't happen. Pepco

"In Washington power broker Vernon Jordan is dead. Jordan grew up in segregated Atlanta, worked in civil rights law after graduating from Howard Law School and became head of the National Urban League in the seventies. He's been a long time Washington D. C. The resident. He used that position to become one of the city's most imposing figures. He never held public office, but formed relationships with lawmakers and corporate leaders to create economic and political opportunities for African Americans. His friendship with a young bill Clinton paid off later when he became one of the president's closest advisors, D. C delegate Eleanor Holmes. Norton spoke with us earlier about Jordan. In a real sense. He's a real inspiration to young people and especially the African Americans to what they Can't achieve. He's in American life. He will certainly be unforgettable.
