The legislature must act to fund them — our students are counting on us. pic.twitter.com/IfkmtpdcYs— Governor Tom Wolf (@GovernorTomWolf) October 12, 2017 The Blog,  Weekly Update On Monday, Governor Wolf called on the state legislature to pass legislation that would require employers to cover contraceptives at no-cost. The governor’s call for the mandate follows the announcement that the Trump Administration would be allowing more employers to deny coverage for birth control.On Friday, Governor Wolf and Acting Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman issued a statement on the Trump Administration’s latest effort to destabilize the Affordable Care Act, which would cause health insurance rate increases in 2018.This week, Governor Wolf continued to manage state finances and announced more action to meet commitments to fund schools, health and human services, and other government entities. The governor also traveled to Erie on Wednesday to rally support for a shale tax and urged the legislature to pass funding for state-related universities.“I’m here to make clear that I am managing the budget, but the General Assembly still has work to do: fund our major state universities and pass a commonsense tax on shale,” said Governor Wolf. “The fairest and simplest solution to the current budget challenge is a severance tax on natural gas production.”After the tragedy in Las Vegas, Governor Wolf joined in supporting commonsense bipartisan proposals to ban ‘bump stock’ accessories for military style-weapons.“Bipartisan legislators are rightfully sounding the alarm that these devices should not be legal in Pennsylvania,” Governor Wolf said. “Given the bipartisan nature, this should be commonsense for the General Assembly to swiftly pass to protect Pennsylvanians.”Governor Wolf’s Week, October 8 – October 14, 2017Sunday, 10/8/17Governor Wolf Orders Flags at Half-Staff in Honor of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial ServiceMonday, 10/9/17Governor Wolf Calls on Legislature to Make Birth Control Coverage a MandateGovernor Wolf Announces More Action to Manage State Budget and Meet Commitments to Schools, ProvidersTuesday, 10/10/17Governor Wolf Urges Swift Passage of Bipartisan ‘Bump-Stock’ BanGovernor Wolf Announces Relocation of Royal Industries International, Inc.

FA Cup: Reds, Toffees light up Anfield in derby

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea Liverpool vs. Everton Venue:Anfield Stadium Kick off: 5:01PMLiverpool will look to replicate their astonishing Premier League form in the FA Cup when they meet local rivals Everton in the third round this afternoon. Jurgen Klopp’s men are cruising at the top of the table, while the Toffees are enjoying a resurgence of form under new boss Carlo Ancelotti. Thursday’s 2-0 victory over Sheffield United handed Liverpool the incredible record of going a full calendar year without losing a game in the Premier League. The result leaves the Merseyside club 13 points ahead of closest challengers Leicester City with a game in hand, leading many to believe that the title is already destined for Anfield. However, while Liverpool’s resurgence in the league and in Europe has been remarkable, such success has not replicated itself in the FA Cup during the Klopp era. Since the 2015-16 campaign, Liverpool have not gone beyond the fourth round, exiting the competition at that stage on three occasions and losing to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the third round last term. Having not won the accolade since 2006, supporters will hope that their team places greater emphasis on going deeper in this competition – starting with a tantalising meeting with their biggest rivals under the lights today. For Everton, it was their last visit to Anfield in December – a 5-2 defeat – that put the nail in the coffin for former manager Marco Silva, who was sacked soon after. Since then, however, the Toffees have discovered a sense of rhythm that seemed to elude Silva and his players from the moment the 2019-20 campaign kicked off. Following a galvanising victory over Chelsea under caretaker boss Darren Ferguson, the club secured the services of Champions League winner Ancelotti in what must be viewed as a masterful piece of recruitment. The Italian has exerted an immediate impact, recording a pair of dominant victories over Burnley and Newcastle United ahead of performing impressively during a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad. Indeed, Ancelotti will point to the organisation and energy of that performance as a blueprint for how Everton must negotiate the trip to Anfield this weekend. Liverpool possible XI: Adrian, Hoever, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Salah, Firmino, Elliot. Everton possible XI: Pickford, Sidibe, Holgate, Keane, Digne, Davies, Sigurdsson, Walcott, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Kean.Tags: Carlo AncelottiFA CupJurgen KloppLiverpoollast_img read more
