Trick Or Treat Don't Drink And Drive


(PIKESVILLE, MD) – With Halloween quickly approaching, troopers remind folks as they carve their pumpkins and pick out their costumes, the best choices they can make are to drive sober or designate a sober driver before the celebrating begins. 
 
The Maryland State Police is reminding all drivers that ‘Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving’ because every Halloween there are still some people who think they can drive after drinking. There will be additional patrols out specifically looking for and removing dangerous and impaired drivers from the roadways to ensure everyone has a safe Halloween celebration. 
 
“We want to encourage people to trick or treat this Halloween but never to drink and drive,” said Colonel Marcus L. Brown, Superintendent of the Maryland State Police. “Before you take your first sip of alcohol on October 31, figure out who your designated sober driver will be. If you wait until you’re ‘buzzed’ to make that decision, you may make the wrong choice.” 
 
Remember, designate a sober driver and give them the keys. If you find yourself impaired, call a friend or family member, use public transportation, or call a taxi. If you see a driver you think is impaired, keep a safe distance and contact law enforcement. The extra troopers will be saturating roads with high documented DUI crashes. They will also be focusing on impaired and distracted drivers.

NASA's Antares Rocket Explodes During Lauch At Wallops Island


The unmanned commercial supply Antares rocket bound for the International Space Station exploded moments after liftoff Tuesday evening, with debris falling in flames over the launch site along the eastern Virginia coast.
No deaths or injuries were reported following the first catastrophic launch in NASA's commercial spaceflight effort, and the damage appeared to be limited to the facilities at Wallops Island.
"There was failure on launch. There was no indicated loss of life.There was significant property and vehicle damage. Mission control is trying to assess what went wrong," Jay Bolden, a NASA spokesman, told CNN.
The accident at Orbital Sciences Corp.'s launch complex at Wallops Island was sure to draw criticism over the space agency's growing reliance on private U.S. companies in this post-shuttle effort.
NASA is paying billions of dollars to Orbital Sciences and the SpaceX company to make station deliveries, and it's counting on SpaceX and Boeing to start flying U.S. astronauts to the orbiting lab as early as 2017. NASA said there nothing on the lost flight that was urgently needed by the six people living on the space station.
Orbital Sciences' Antares rocket blew up over the launch complex, just six seconds after liftoff at approximately 6:22 p.m. EST. Flames could be seen shooting into the sky as the sun set. There was no hint of any trouble until the rocket exploded.

PARRC Transition Prompts State Board Of Education To Update Graduation Requirements


The Maryland State Board of Education today approved a framework for updating high school graduation requirements as the State transitions to new assessments.
 
Under the plan approved by the State Board, passing the new Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) exams in English 10 and Algebra I will not become a graduation requirement until the 2016-17 school year.  The Board in December will likely act on proposed regulations based on the framework.
 
“Today’s discussion on the move to assessments aligned to Maryland’s College and Career Ready Standards was focused on our students in the same way we’ve focused on our educators throughout this period,” said Dr. Mary Kay Finan, Vice President of the Maryland State Board of Education.  “Our two-year plan will allow our students and teachers to become more knowledgeable in the more rigorous standards during the transition.”
 
Although the PARCC exams are being given this year for the first time in mathematics and English, the process with which the passing scores are set will not be completed until December 2015.  This transition caused challenges for some students who had taken HSA-aligned courses, as well as students enrolled in the first years of the PARCC-aligned courses.
 
For students enrolled in the tested high school courses during 2014-15 and 2015-16, the following requirements will be included in a new regulatory proposal:
 
Students who have taken the Algebra I HSA-aligned course will have the opportunity to retake the exam in 2014-15.  Because the HSA-aligned test ends after the 2014-15 school year, students who have not passed will not need to take a make-up test in 2015-16 in order to graduate.  These students must still pass the course as part of their graduation requirements.
 
Students who have taken the English 10 HSA-aligned course will have the opportunity to re-take the exam in 2014-15.  Because the HSA-aligned test ends after the 2014-15 school year, students who have not passed will not need to take a make-up test in 2015-16 in order to graduate.  These students must still pass the course as part of their graduation requirements. 
 
Students taking the Algebra I course aligned to PARCC in 2014-15 and 2015-16, and not passing the test, will not be required to pass the exam in order to graduate.  These students must still pass the course as part of their graduation requirements.
 
Students taking the English 10 course aligned to PARCC in 2014-15 and 2015-16, and not passing the test, will not be required to pass the exam in order to graduate.  These students must still pass the course as part of their graduation requirements.
 
As in the past, all students still must pass the government and biology High School Assessments – or successfully complete the Bridge Plan project-based assessment in those subjects – in order to graduate.
 
The presentation made to the Maryland State Board of Education today recommended that students enrolled in the PARCC-aligned courses during 2016-17 and beyond will have to pass all four assessments, or successfully complete Bridge Plan projects in those subjects, to receive a Maryland high school diploma.

Both were treated and released at Charles Regional Medical Center. The estimated total loss in the fire is $250,000.
