Although it can be considered very common for anime heroes to lay down their lives for the greater good, some characters can make difficult and painful decisions that lead to sacrificing the lives of others when needed, such as Satoru Gojo and Levi Ackerman. However, the heroes who carry the dream of protecting everyone around them cannot even imagine going down this path.

These same dreamers are the saviors who can sacrifice anything, including their lives, to protect others, even when the odds are not in their favor or they gain little or nothing by doing so. This recklessly heroic quality of these characters makes them overlook their own lives.

ten Tanjiro Kamado’s compassion gets the better of him

demon slayer

Tanjiro Kamado is an exceptionally compassionate individual who can’t help but empathize with everyone, demons and humans alike. He is shown to care very little about his own life, especially when it comes to protecting his sister, Nezuko, who has been turned into a demon. However, this is where his extreme empathy comes from.

The boy can’t help but notice that his sister would have been in the same position as the demons that attacked him if it weren’t for Giyu Tomioka, Sakonji Urokodaki and all the other beings that helped him. in his journey to heal her. As a result, his compassion makes him gamble his own life for the good of others.

9 Krista Lenz never cared about herself

The attack of the Titans

Krista Lenz, or rather Historia Reiss, cared little for her well-being from the start. She sacrificed her life to protect Ymir and the rest of her comrades many times. Although many characters in The attack of the Titans fall into this category, what is different about Krista is that she never enjoyed her own life due to her tragic past and was apparently happy to end her life.

RELATED: 10 Times Attack On Titan Broke Our Hearts

Krista managed to find a new purpose that motivated her when she became the Queen of Heaven. However, as the events of Season 4 progressed, she once again ended up ignoring the value of her life, ending up in the same place she started.

8 Izuku Midoriya takes action without thinking

my hero academia

Whether saving Katsuki Bakugo from the notorious League of Villains or rescuing Eri from the cruel hands of Overhaul, Izuku Midoriya has rarely cared about his own well-being when it comes to protecting the others. The young lad still seems to be following in All Might’s footsteps while adding a unique twist to the role in his own way.

However, Midoriya has been reckless with his own life from the very beginning, much like when he tried to save Bakugo from The Sludge Villain. Midoriya’s tendency to move mindlessly when someone needs help is what made him worthy of being All Might’s successor in the first place, but it’s also something that classifies him as utterly reckless. towards his own life.

seven Koro-Sensei puts his life at risk every second of the day

Assassination Classroom

Koro-Sensei could have lived a long life had he focused on curing his condition rather than teaching Class 3-E. However, after losing the love of his life, Aguri Yukimura, he didn’t have much to look forward to in life and was ready to die granting his wishes.

Koro-Sensei took responsibility as the homeroom teacher of the senior class of Kunugigaoka High School and was able to make a difference in the lives of his students. He constantly put his own life on the line but kept his students safe at all costs, eventually becoming the change Yukimura saw in him all along.

6 Yuji Itadori often puts his life in danger

Jujutsu Kaisen

Yuji Itadori has always been the kind of person who puts the needs of others before himself. It’s safe to say the 15-year-old has little to no respect for his own life. He doesn’t hesitate to put his life on the line to save someone and ends up fighting to fulfill his unprecedented dream of leading people to a proper death.

RELATED: 10 Things From Jujutsu Kaisen Manga We’re Glad Were Never Adapted

Although the demon inside him, Sukuna, makes sure he suffers the most on his way to achieving his dream, Itadori manages to find his way around the dilemma by putting himself in quite dangerous situations. The best example is still him swapping with Sukuna in a literal heartless body to save Megumi Fushiguro.

5 Naruto Uzumaki can die happily for the greater good

naruto

The first time fans saw Naruto Uzumaki put his life in danger was when he fought the Hidden Mist Demon to save Sasuke Uchiha. The incident showed his endless courage, the limits he can cross for the people he cares for, and his true potential as a protagonist of the story.

Naruto continued to save the village that considered him an outcast from the start on several occasions, despite their animosity towards him. Not only that, but he also protected the entire world from Goddess Otsutsuki Kaguya by putting his own life in jeopardy, proving that he can happily sacrifice himself for the greater good.

4 Eren Jaeger accepted his end from the start

The attack of the Titans

If one thing has remained constant about Eren Jaeger throughout The attack of the Titans, it is his contempt for his own life. From dreaming unwaveringly of joining the dangerous Boy Scout regiment to sacrificing himself to save Armin from a Titan, he rarely hesitated when it came to giving up his right to live for the greater things in life.

The boy has passionately followed a path that ends in certain death from the very beginning. While his status as a hero is debatable, his selflessness towards his people and his dedication to achieving freedom for Paradis are unquestionably immaculate and worth laying down his life for – at least from his own perspective.

3 All could never give up the world

my hero academia

From being a little kid dreaming of becoming the ultimate symbol of peace to walking a path that led him to his destination, All Might is rightly the best professional hero in my hero academia. However, from the start, he seemed to care very little about his own well-being.

RELATED: 9 Times Everything Could Save The Day In My Hero Academia

The Plus Ultra hero continued to fight notorious villains even though his health deteriorated excessively with each battle. He understood his meaning and responsibility as a symbol of peace and refused to back down, even if it meant his demise. Sir Nighteye predicted All Might’s certain death if he continued on his way, but he never stopped fighting for the good of others.

2 Kyojuro Rengoku never lets anyone die under his watch

demon slayer

Kyojuro Rengoku has put his life on the line many times for the sake of others, and fans absolutely adore him for that very reason. He managed to save everyone in his path until the moment of his death, which says a lot about his values, beliefs, and overall abilities.

Being the only Hashira who never let anyone die under his watch, he cared little for his own life, and it’s heartbreaking that fans lost such an incredible and wholesome character so early in the series. However, it is safe to say that even after his passing, he will continue to inspire others. That’s just the kind of character he is.

1 Mumen Rider possesses boundless courage

One-punch man

If there’s anything Mumen Rider has that even Saitama doesn’t, it’s boundless courage and a complete disregard for his own life. Throughout the show, he can be seen putting his life in danger at every turn. This C-class hero has a very simple mantra: as soon as he sees someone in need of rescuing, he instantly leaps into action, not caring at all about their well-being or their recovery rate. success.

Despite being a regular cyclist without any superpowers, Mumen Rider never backs down, even if all the odds in the world are stacked against him – and fans love him for it. For the slightest glimmer of hope, he gives everything to make the world a better place for everyone and inspires others in ways unimaginable.

NEW YORK, NY— HEAVENSAKE, the first French-Japanese sake, introduces a new expression JUNMAI DAIGINJO – titled “Label Orange” (720 ml; 16.9% ABV; $69.99 SRP) – in its portfolio, in collaboration with the famous brewery of Urakasumi sake, located in Miyagi prefecture in northern Japan. Label Orange, which reflects the know-how of a winemaker applied to sake and the terroir of Japanese rice varieties, recently received the Gold Medal from the New York World Wine & Spirits 2022 competition.

Co-founder of HEAVENSAKE and award-winning Chef de Cavein Champagne, France, Régis Camus worked closely with Toji d’Urakasumi (master brewer) and its president, Koichi Saura, to create a smooth, pure and elegant liquid. Saura san is the 13th generation of the Saura family and founding president of the Sake Samurai organization in Japan which actively promotes sake overseas. According to Saura san, HEAVENSAKE is a game-changer for the sake industry, creating the first lifestyle brand and opening new doors for this category.

Marked with a bright orange cap and bottled in HEAVENSAKE’s signature black glass bottle, the liquid is uniquely crafted using Camus’ expertise in wine blending here applied to sake. Camus approaches the crafting of each expression of Junmai Daiginjo as a winemaker blending a vintage of a wine; focused on the terroir of each rice, the polish and the water source of the region, to create the perfect blend of three pure ingredients – water, rice and Koji. Camus collaborated with the 290-year-old brewery to blend Kura No Hana, a local rice variety, and Yamadanishiki rice with two Urakasumi-exclusive yeasts, including the widely recognized Kyokai 12 yeast, and the uniquely sweet water from the Miyagi prefecture. type. The resulting liquid is an extremely smooth, versatile and delicious multi-layered blend with 16.9% ABV gluten, sulfite, sugar and additive free.

In creating a new Junmai Daiginjo, Camus wanted to extend the success and excitement that greeted the brand’s first Junmai Daiginjo expression, which was created in partnership with southern Japan’s renowned Dassai Brewery in Yamaguchi Prefecture; a liquid made from harder, mineral-rich water from the region, Yamadanishiki rice and Dassai Brewery’s proprietary yeast blend.

“We are certainly entering a period of acceleration for the Sake category in the main export markets – the United States, China and Hong Kong,” says Camus. “Before the pandemic, the category trend was around +20% year-over-year. These markets have seen rapid growth in the Junmai Sake segment, especially for the Junmai Daiginjo grade. The momentum is there: HEAVENSAKE in 2021 tripled its sales compared to the previous year.

TASTING NOTES: HEAVENSAKE “LABEL ORANGE” JUNMAI DAIGINJO

(720ml; 16.9% ABV; $69.99 SRP)

Aroma: delicate notes of delicate notes of pineapple, lychee, green apple, melon, flower, white lily with hints of dried fruits and steamed rice

Taste: Perfect balance between the purity of a dry Junmai sake and a crisp wine-like tasting experience; silky texture – slightly rich and dry – complex layered umami and sweet acidity

Finish: Distinctly refined with 40-50% rice glaze – a process by which the hard outer shell of each grain is removed to reveal rice in its purest form, giving way to a cleaner, purer flavor.

Tasting advice: Label Orange can be enjoyed chilled in a wine glass; designed for easy consumption and versatile food pairings such as lobster, uni, sashimi, carpaccio, cheese and caviar

HEAVENSAKE Label Orange is currently being rolled out in major US markets. It is available at top restaurants, including Sushi Nakazawa in New York; Zuma in Boston; Akira back in Houston; Sushi by Scratch and Rosewood Miramar in Montecito, California, and is available nationwide through online retailers such as TippsySake.com and Reservebar.com.

About HEAVENSAKE

Founded in 2016 and introduced to the US market in 2017, HEAVENSAKE is an award-winning collection of premium smooth sakes (winner of “Best Sake” at IWC San Francisco in 2019 and 2020). Crafted and handcrafted in Japan, HEAVENSAKE celebrates the union between the traditional art of Japanese sake-making and Champagne blending techniques. This is the first French-Japanese collaboration in the world of sake, co-founded by the famous French cellar master Régis Camus. Camus is an eight-time winner of the prestigious “Winemaker of the Year” award at the International Wine Challenge, the most prestigious and meticulously judged wine competition in the world. Unlike traditional batch sake, Camus’ vision brings expertise in the art of blending Champagne vintages to HEAVENSAKE.

The four expressions of HEAVENSAKE all belong to the prestigious class of sake Junmai, which translates to “pure” in Japanese, with two expressions JUNMAI DAIGINJO, TWO expressions JUNMAI GINJO and their unique creation JUNMAI 12 – a sake with 12% alcohol with 25% less alcohol and 25% fewer calories than normal Junmai sake. The unparalleled sweetness of the sakes comes from Régis’ skillful blending, blending different sakes from historic breweries. Working closely with the Tojis (sake brewmasters), Regis has created four expressions that all meet the highest standards of balance, purity and refinement to reflect the meaning of Junmai. The four HEAVENSAKE breweries are among the most respected in Japan: Dassai, Urakasumi, Konishi and Hakushika.

Extremely user-friendly and designed to be enjoyed at any time of the day – much like a glass of wine or a nice refreshing beer – HEAVENSAKE is made from just three ingredients: rice, water and koji for fermentation, a process similar to that of brewing beer. Each expression is meant to be enjoyed chilled and served in a wine glass. The distinct blends are all-natural, created without distilled alcohol or added sugar; all expressions are sulfite-free, gluten-free and additive-free, and are three times less acidic than wine. Given these qualities, HEAVENSAKE is the ideal drink for any bon vivant looking for “A Better High” (HEAVENSAKE’s mission, to stay lively even after a playful moment.)

From the sake to the bottle itself, everything is produced in Japan. The distinct and exclusive shape of the HEAVENSAKE bottle took nearly 18 months to design and was born out of the challenge of finding a shape that respects the traditionally understated elegance of Japanese culture while expressing the brand’s modern personality. The result is a container that evokes the purity of water, the character of champagne and the timelessness of wine – life in a drop. The HEAVENSAKE (RAKKAN) logo refers to the brand’s French-Japanese heritage: the hexagonal shape represents France due to the country’s six-sided shape, while the interior lines are inspired by Japanese kanji (calligraphy) , creating three hexagons to represent water , rice and koji – the three main ingredients that produce sake. A testament to the brand’s unique design, HEAVENSAKE has received gold recognition for packaging design at the San Francisco International Wine Competition two years in a row.

Loved by cultural icons and notable celebrities such as Neil Patrick Harris, Dita Von Teese, A$AP Rocky, Irina Shayk and Emily Ratajowski, HEAVENSAKE is easily found in acclaimed restaurants and hotels across the United States, including MASA , Sushi Nakazawa, Gjelina, The Setai. , PLANTA, Casa Faena, O Ya, Sushi by Bou and many more. Today, HEAVENSAKE is distributed nationally by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits and available for purchase at reputable retailers across the country including Bowery & Vine, Erewhon, Whole Foods, BevMo! and Trader Joe’s.

This article is part of a frankfurt guide by FT Globetrotter

This year I returned to Japan after five years as a Frankfurt correspondent for Nikkei. Compared to Tokyo, where the food is said to be the best in the world, German restaurants might not be the ones people miss the most. However, it is no exaggeration to say that the Japanese restaurants in Frankfurt, the cosmopolitan city where I have lived, are among the best in Europe and have been an oasis for me during my stay in Germany. Here are six of my favorites.

Masa Japanese Cuisine

Hanauer Landstraße 131, 60314 Frankfurt am Main

  • Good for: Authentic yet contemporary Japanese cuisine

  • Not so good for: Location. It’s not very central

  • FOR YOUR INFORMATION: One Michelin star. 9-course menu, €160; 7-course menu, €145

  • Website; directions

Chef Masaru Oae of Masa Japanese Cuisine

A few weeks before my departure from Frankfurt, I received an email from a young Japanese chef: “My restaurant has received a Michelin star. Masaru Oae, who had trained in London and Dusseldorf, opened his first restaurant under his own name in May 2021. I knew he would one day acquire a star, but I was surprised it was so soon.

A five-minute walk from the glass building of the European Central Bank in the east of Frankfurt, the restaurant seats around 20 people and upon entering it feels like stepping into a cocoon. The omakase-style menu is a must. When I visited, the meal started with a starter of shiso tempura and sea bream tartare on a bed of earthy-looking dried black olives. We picked them up and ate them with our hands. Masa uses a wide variety of seasonal and imported Japanese ingredients. The beautiful presentation and varied textures of the dishes are a delight for the senses.

“Even if it was in Tokyo, the standard of this restaurant would be quite high,” a friend told the savvy palace. I agreed. It may be too late, but I recommend a visit before it becomes impossible to get a reservation.

Muku

Dreieichstraße 7, 60594 Frankfurt am Main

  • Good for: A business dinner or a meeting with friends or family

  • Not so good for: Reservations — the phone isn’t often picked up

  • FOR YOUR INFORMATION: Open for dinner Wednesday-Sunday, and Thursday-Sunday for walk-in lunch too

  • Website; directions

Muku-Restaurant

Perhaps the best restaurant in terms of friendliness is Muku, located in Sachsenhausen, just south of the Main river, opposite the city center. Several years ago, Muku triumphantly opened his second ramen shop at the Ramen Museum in Yokohama, Japan. It is now reputed to be one of the best ramen places in Europe, but the “ramen restaurant” label misrepresents its potential. Muku has a chic, adult izakaya atmosphere with a selection of delicacies such as firefly squid and heshiko (mackerel marinated in rice bran paste). Seasonal sake is also available from time to time.

For the less adventurous, the karaage (Japanese fried chicken), gyoza dumplings, shrimp mayonnaise and other dishes are sure to please. When it comes to Muku ramen, I always order tsukemen (dipping noodles). While dipping the firm noodles into the seafood broth and sipping, I also sometimes squeeze in a little lemon to sharpen the taste. When I’ve finished the noodles, I savor the rest of the soup-wari, or a broth base, which can be supplemented if desired. It’s so satisfying.

Bar J’epoca Saka

Fritschengasse 5, 60594 Frankfurt am Main

  • Good for: Friendly service

  • Not so good for: Hangover

  • FOR YOUR INFORMATION: He has an online sake store

  • Website; directions

Sake served at J'epoca Saka Bar

The sake specialist caters to everyone, from connoisseurs to Japanese drink novices

As its name suggests, J’epoca Saka Bar, located at the end of the cobbled streets of Sachsenhausen, specializes in sake. Owner Mayuko Morooka hails from Ishikawa Prefecture, which is famous for its sake, and selects it from there. If you’re not familiar with sake, why not start with a set that lets you try three kinds in small sizes? They also serve a variety of snacks that go well with it, like soy sauce-soaked cream cheese and fried tofu.

I was

Vilbeler Strasse 31, 60313 Frankfurt am Main

  • Good for: A quick lunch

  • Not so good for: debit cards; payment is made in cash or by credit card if the invoice is greater than €30

  • FOR YOUR INFORMATION: Close on Sunday

  • Such : 0049-69 283992 (no website); directions

A man looking at a row of food at Iwase in Frankfurt

Iwase is one of the oldest Japanese restaurants in Frankfurt

The author made for Iwase whenever he craved sushi during his stay in Frankfurt

During my stay in Germany, about once every two or three months, I suddenly had a craving for sushi. I was waiting for Friday noon, when work had calmed down a bit, to slip into this little restaurant in the city center, about a 15-minute walk from the office. Iwase is one of Frankfurt’s oldest Japanese restaurants. It’s been around since the 1990s, when Japanese cuisine wasn’t as popular in Europe as it is today. The place is usually full, but you can often find a seat at the counter for one person. The lunch menu is reasonably priced. For €20 you can get a decent sushi platter with a small salad, miso soup and a fruit plate. As German sushi rice is often large, ordering a smaller portion will give you a more authentic experience.

City of Mangetsu

GROSSE ESCHENHEIMER STRASSE 43, 60313 FRANKFURT ON THE MAIN

  • Good for: Central location

  • Not so good for: Formal business dinners

  • FOR YOUR INFORMATION: There is a sister restaurant near Messe Frankfurt

  • Website; directions

A hand holding udon noodles over a bowl at Frankfurt's Mangetsu restaurant

Mangetsu is renowned for its homemade udon. . .

. . . popular with Japanese expats in Frankfurt

This is another reasonably priced lunch spot, which at night is a izakaya crowded with Japanese expats and locals. During the day, you can get a Japanese-style lunch for around €15. What sets this place apart from other Japanese restaurants in Germany is their homemade udon noodles. Two of my Frankfurt acquaintances from Kagawa prefecture, known in Japan as “udon prefecture”, say Mangetsu’s udon is delicious, so you can rest assured you won’t be disappointed.

Tokyo Yatai

Walther-von-Cronberg-Platz, 60594 Frankfurt am Main

  • Good for: sunny days

  • Not so good for: The van is not always in the same place

  • FOR YOUR INFORMATION: In winter, he sells other foods such as sweet potatoes

  • Website

It could be dessert time. There is no doubt that is, or Italian gelato, is one of Germany’s favorite summer dishes. In Frankfurt, however, you can also enjoy khaki-gori (shaved ice dessert) at Tokyo Yatai, a Japanese ice cream van. There are many flavors to choose from, including matcha and mango, but the taste of lightly crushed ice topped with a sweet and sour sauce made from fresh strawberries is perfect for the hot German summer.

Christian Petracca looked visibly furious over the Brownlow Medal thanks to AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan’s incorrect pronunciation of his name.

Now awkward footage has surfaced on social media showing the Melbourne Demons star appearing to speak ‘for f**k’s sake’ after McLachlan repeatedly got the name wrong.

Throughout the prestigious awards night, McLachlan was pretty fluent with the majority of the pronunciation — though he couldn’t quite catch one in particular.

Despite being one of the AFL’s biggest and most popular stars, Petracca’s name was a struggle for McLachlan and the former Premiership winner was growing increasingly frustrated.

At one point while collecting votes for Round 16, McLachlan completely butchered the name once again and the camera immediately panned to a disgruntled Petracca, who appeared to say “it’s Petracca for love shit” before glancing at teammate Max Gawn.

The microphones picked up no real sound, though fans were quick to guess what he said.

A clip of the incident was posted on Twitter and it instantly exploded, with the caption reading, “Petracca frustrated with Gill’s pronunciation of his name.”

One user added: ‘Suspect Christian Petracca will want a meeting with the next AFL CEO to review the pronunciation of his surname after tonight.’

All in all, it made viewing quite awkward.

As for the Brownlows themselves, it was Carlton star Patrick Cripps who won the first gong with 29 votes in total.

Meanwhile, Petracca finished with 24.

Amber Heard continues to be the target of online trolls for the sake of Johnny Depp fans

Amber Heard is still the target of online trolls months after losing the high-profile libel case against her ex-husband Johnny Depp.

According to the latest reports, YouTube refused to delete a channel, only dedicated to posting negative content on the Aquaman actor to please Depp fans and followers.

Chain, justinshares messages disparaging the actor and accusing him of lying in the highly publicized defamation lawsuit against her ex-husband.

According to a report published by Newsweek.

In a since-deleted post for the job, they wrote, “Basically we’re looking for content that’s about something that proves how guilty Amber Heard is, because our fans are all Johnny Depp fans.”

“So they prefer videos about new evidence, celebrities, or something else that goes against Amber Heard or supports Johnny Depp,” the post description adds.

But, the video streaming service said Newsweek that after reviewing the channel, they concluded that it did not violate its community guidelines.

Meanwhile, some of the recent uploads to the channel have these headlines, “New RUMOR: Amber’s baby was just a PR stunt to win MERCY!”, “NEW Insighter text and pics REVEAL that Amber is exploiting celebrities with S**!” and “Amber caught attacking her new partner 3 times in front of the police!” according to The Independent.

Chiefs fans took tailgating to a new level on Thursday.

Nearly four hours before the parking lot doors opened Thursday at the Truman Sports Complex, Chiefs fans were already lining up. But that doesn’t mean fans had to wait for the tailgating to begin.

As the NFL Network’s James Palmer noted in a video he shared on Twitter, Chiefs fans had begun a “complete tailgate before tailgate.”

Palmer said in the video that one of the reasons he likes to arrive at Arrowhead Stadium early on game days is to see the long line of cars and trucks waiting to pull into the parking lots. Palmer said in his video that it was 10:52 a.m. and the courts don’t open until 2:30 p.m. for the “Thursday Night Football” game between the Chiefs and Chargers.

The game starts at 7:15 p.m.

Palmer noted that the number of people arriving early Thursday rivaled a playoff game, and he called him “bonkers”.

It’s an impressive performance from the Kansas City fans, and Chiefs actor/supporter Eric Stonestreet commented on the fans.

This story was originally published September 15, 2022 1:23 p.m.

The City of Frisco wants to improve its Internet access and is looking for suggestions on how best to accomplish this.

The municipality hopes to improve its internet access for the benefit of its inhabitants, businesses and emergency services. The city sent out a request for proposals for broadband strategic plans on Friday, September 2, with an October 14 submission deadline. City Council can award a bid on Tuesday, November 8.

Frisco currently relies on DSL and cable connections for its Internet access, said city communications director and project manager Vanessa Agee. As a result, upload and download speeds are “not so good”. The proposal outlines the goals of increasing speeds and adding redundancy to Frisco’s Internet service.



“Internet access is fundamental to quality of life,” Agee said. Kids need it to complete school homework, parents need it for work, and many just need it to stream their favorite TV show. Agee identified three reasons to improve Frisco’s Internet access: personal, emergency and business.

When the Internet goes down in Frisco — as has happened several times over the past few months — businesses lose the ability to get work done and some even lose the ability to handle credit cards.



“It can be infuriating,” said Elizabeth Skrzypczak-Adrian, city council member and owner of Rocky Mountain Coffee Roasters. Internet access is integral when so many shoppers rely on credit cards or Apple Pay, two services that are lost when the Internet goes down. With so many travelers passing through the area relying on Google Maps or online searches to navigate Frisco, internet access is also important for travelers, she said.

“It just slows everything down,” Skrzypczak-Adrian said of the internet outages in Frisco.

The plan would also consider impacts on emergency services, which need reliable broadband and cellular service to send important and urgent messages, Agee said.

In February 2020, the Frisco City Council passed a “dig once” ordinance, allowing the city to install fiber infrastructure whenever excavation work is done for local, state, or private projects such as roadwork along Colorado Highway 9. place underground conduits in which fiber optic cables can be installed. With that groundwork laid, Agee said it was time for the city to take the next step.

Frisco announced its RFP on Sept. 2, and proposals are due Oct. 14 at 4 p.m. The broadband plan is expected to take four to six months, according to the city’s press release.

Questions regarding the RFP are due by 4:00 p.m. Friday, September 16 and answers to questions will be provided by 4:00 p.m. Wednesday, September 21 at FriscoRFP.com.

A virtual meeting for interested parties will take place at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, September 13. Attendance is not required to submit a proposal. A link to the meeting is contained in the proposal description at FriscoGov.com.

The Broadband Strategic Plan will help the city chart its course. Agee said the plan will determine what foundations the city already has in place, what other needs need to be built, and how Frisco achieves robust fiber connections in an affordable way. The plan will seek to determine whether a public, public-private, or exclusively private model is best for the city.

In addition to a public process with stakeholder interviews and a public meeting or survey to assess broadband needs and cost sensitivity, the plan would inventory and map Frisco’s current broadband infrastructure, describe the impact of broadband availability on the community and propose budget allocations. Additionally, it will analyze various scenarios with associated costs, such as whether to go in a private or public direction, and examine the costs of providing free and more widely available public Wi-Fi.

The project plan will also look at ways Frisco can wrap up its work in northwest Colorado. THOR projecta large-scale effort to improve Internet access in rural communities.

In the name of science?

On September 12, 1962, then-US President John F. Kennedy informed the public of his plans to land a man on the moon by the end of the decade.

It was the height of the Cold War and America needed a big victory to demonstrate its space superiority after the Soviet Union launched the first satellite and put the first man in orbit.

“We chose to go to the moon,” Kennedy told 40,000 people at Rice University, “because this challenge is one we are willing to accept, one we don’t want to postpone, and one we we intend to win.”

Sixty years later, the United States is about to launch the first mission of its return program to the Moon, Artemis. But why repeat what has already been done?

Criticism has grown in recent years, for example from Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins and Mars Society founder Robert Zubrin, who have long advocated for America to go directly to Mars.

But NASA maintains that reclaiming the Moon is a must before a trip to the Red Planet. Here’s why.

– Long space missions –

NASA wants to develop a sustainable human presence on the Moon, with missions lasting several weeks – compared to just a few days for Apollo.

The objective: to better understand how to prepare a multi-year round trip to Mars.

In deep space, the radiation is much more intense and poses a real threat to health.

Low Earth orbit, where the International Space Station (ISS) operates, is partly protected from radiation from the Earth’s magnetic field, which is not the case on the Moon.

From the first Artemis mission, many experiments are planned to study the impact of this radiation on living organisms, and to assess the effectiveness of an anti-radiation vest.

Moreover, while the ISS can often be resupplied, trips to the Moon – a thousand times further – are much more complex.

To avoid having to take everything with them, and to save money, NASA wants to learn how to use the resources present on the surface.

In particular, water in the form of ice, which has been confirmed to exist at the lunar south pole, could be turned into rocket fuel by cracking it into its separate hydrogen and oxygen atoms.

– Testing new gear –

NASA also wants to pilot technologies on the Moon that will continue to evolve on Mars. First, new spacesuits for spacewalks.

Their design has been entrusted to the company Axiom Space for the first mission to land on the Moon, in 2025 at the earliest.

Other needs: vehicles – pressurized and non-pressurized – for the astronauts to move around in, as well as habitats.

Finally, for sustainable access to an energy source, NASA is working on the development of portable nuclear fission systems.

Solving the problems that arise will be much easier on the Moon, only days away, than on Mars, which cannot be reached for at least several months.

– Establishing a waypoint –

A major pillar of the Artemis program is the construction of a space station in orbit around the Moon, dubbed Gateway, which will serve as a relay before the trip to Mars.

All the necessary equipment can be sent there in “multiple launches”, before finally being joined by the crew to set off on the long journey, explained to AFP Sean Fuller, head of the Gateway program.

“Kind of like stopping at your gas station to make sure you have everything you need, then you’re off again.”

– Maintaining leadership in China –

Apart from Mars, another reason given by the Americans for settling on the Moon is to do so before the Chinese, who plan to send taikonauts there by 2030.

China is now the main competitor to the United States as the once proud Russian space program has collapsed.

“We don’t want China suddenly coming in and saying, ‘This is our exclusive territory,'” NASA boss Bill Nelson said in a recent interview.

– For the sake of science –

While the Apollo missions have brought nearly 400 kilograms of lunar rock back to Earth, new samples will further deepen our knowledge of this celestial object and its formation.

“The samples we collected during the Apollo missions changed the way we see our solar system,” astronaut Jessica Meir told AFP. “I think we can expect that from the Artemis program as well.”

She also expects new scientific and technological breakthroughs, just like in the days of Apollo.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Deidre DeJear strains at Pella | Local News https://nsms10.com/democratic-gubernatorial-candidate-deidre-dejear-strains-at-pella-local-news/ Wed, 07 Sep 2022 21:44:00 +0000 https://nsms10.com/democratic-gubernatorial-candidate-deidre-dejear-strains-at-pella-local-news/ PELLA — Iowa Democratic gubernatorial candidate Deidre DeJear says Iowa “has never been short-sighted” — but this time is different.

PELLA — Iowa Democratic gubernatorial candidate Deidre DeJear says Iowa “has never been short-sighted” — but this time is different.

Des Moines businesswoman DeJear is running against Republican incumbent Kim Reynolds in the upcoming general election. Reynolds has been governor of Iowa since 2017.

“We have leaders who don’t want to turn on the lights, and who we need to shut down for education, for access to health care and mental health care, for access to our freedoms, for us to be to be able to drink clean water, strengthen our communities and grow. That’s what’s at stake in this election cycle,” DeJear said.

DeJear made 10 stops in Pella on Tuesday, including visits to local businesses, the Career Academy of Pella and Central College. She says no matter where she speaks to voters in the state, education is an important issue for Iowans.

“We were not only able to deliver for Iowans, we led the whole country [in education]. The fact that we are now 18, 19, 20 on the roster under this current governor, we all know we are better than that,” DeJear says.

DeJear cited Reynolds’ “consistent underfunding and defunding” of public education as one of the reasons for the current shortage of teachers and staff in public schools. She says current leaders have granted a 1.9% increase in funding over the past four years, on average, compared to the state’s traditional 5% increase.

“As a result, we’re now asking our educators in an incredibly trying time to do more with less, but more than more with less — it’s more of a miracle with less,” DeJear says. “I strongly believe that we can’t really judge our education system right now. It’s almost like we’re starving the system and letting it fail, and we don’t have to.

DeJear opposes Reynolds’ school choice plan, which would provide taxpayer-funded scholarships to pay for private school expenses of 10,000 students. The Iowa Legislature failed to pass Reynolds’ private education bill in its last legislative cycle earlier this year. However, Reynolds said she would make the education bill a campaign issue in this year’s election and would continue to push for the legislation if re-elected.

“Over 95% of our students in this state are enrolled in public schools, and when you see the travesty that’s going on with our school system and you turn your shoulder to it, then say, ‘I’m just going to help 2% of our students,” it’s not responsible,” she said. “It’s not responsible, especially when you’re using taxpayers’ money to do this.”

DeJear’s education goals include increased compensation for educators, administration and public school staff to retain and attract talent; reinvest in business programs to help prepare a skilled workforce; investing in affordable child care for the entire state; and investing in and providing resources for student mental health.

“I want to make sure that we have at least a 4% increase on an annual basis in our education budget. We deserve at least that,” she adds. “I also want to make sure that with these resources, we provide our 3 and 4 year olds with the opportunity to access at least 30 hours of preschool education each week.”

DeJear would also invest in health care and mental health care statewide, saying voters in rural communities travel 45 to 60 miles to receive care. Some are also waiting six to eight months to see mental health providers.

“Due to our lack of resources, we are 45th nationally in the availability of mental health workers. We know this is not our place as a state,” she said. “We have less than 600 [mental health] beds in this state for a population of 3 million people. It is unreasonable. We are perpetuating a crisis there.

But, DeJear says Iowa is “the petri dish of progress,” citing the state as a leader in racial desegregation and same-sex marriage.

“That’s why we can progress, because we believe in people. That’s why I’m running for this race, because I believe in Iowans and I know what we’re capable of,” she said. “The fact is, when this pending issue is here – whether democracy is alive or dead – we cannot allow it to die… Unfortunately, the things our governor is doing, ignoring these basic, fundamental challenges that Iowans are feeling – it’s undemocratic.

The general election is Tuesday, November 8. Early voting begins October 19.
