Covenant in Ezekiel, Part 3

A Valley Full of Dry Bones

The first vision in Ezekiel 37 is the best known in the book. If people are ignorant of everything else in the book, they are often aware of the valley of dry bones, though frequently they have no idea what it means. It surely doesn’t help when commentators apply the whole passage to the Christian church.

The bones stretch out over a wide area, and the prophet is given an aerial view of them. When the inspection is over, God asks Ezekiel, “Son of man,1 can these bones live?” (Ezek. 37:3). The prophet is wise. He knows that the answer to all such questions lies with the living God. So, the Lord gives Ezekiel a command to speak over the bones, and as He speaks the words of God the bones came together and flesh covered them (Ezek. 37:7-8). As so often in the biblical record, the Lord does not bypass the human instruments He has created to exercise dominion upon earth. Ezekiel speaks for God and God’s power stands behind the words.

State Estimation, Control, And Planning For A Quadrotor Team   

Cache   

Teams of aerial robots have the potential to become effective information gathering instruments, specially in the fields of infrastructure inspection, surveillance, and environmental monitoring due to their ability to operate in environments which may be difficult or impassable for ground robots. This dissertation addresses the problem of developing a team of autonomous quadrotors that can be quickly deployed and controlled by a single human operator.

First, we describe the system design and algorithms for robust single robot autonomy and demonstrate it with experiments in a variety of environments. The developed robot uses onboard cameras for state estimation and is capable of autonomous navigation through natural and man-made environments at high speeds.

Next, we develop the system architecture and components to allow a single operator to deploy, control, and monitor a team of robots.

In order to focus on the multi-robot coordination problem, the robots used for this part utilized GPS for state estimation and required known maps of the environment for obstacle avoidance, which limited the usage of the system to known outdoor environments.

Finally, we combine the robots from the first part with this multi-robot framework. The main challenge here is that due to using onboard sensing for state estimation, each robot has a different reference frame for its state estimates, typically with the origin at the starting pose of the robot while the high-level planner for the team requires all the robot state estimates to be in a common reference frame.

We propose a method that uses the relative position/bearing measurements of nearby robots detected using the onboard camera to solve this problem. The complication in this method is that these relative measurements do not contain any identity information since all the robots in the team are equivalent and look the same. In order to fuse these unlabeled measurements and estimate the states of the robots in a common reference frame, we used the Coupled Probabilistic Data Association Filter (CPDAF) and developed an approximation to reduce its computational complexity enabling online estimation with a team of up to 15 robots.

Football 2019: Dartmouth 9, Harvard 6
Gallery View

If you play football for 146 seasons, you are bound to experience bitter losses. But few in the annals of Harvard gridiron lore have been as heart-ripping, soul-sucking, and gut-tearing as the last-play, 9-6 defeat literally snatched from victory suffered at the hands of Dartmouth on Saturday at Harvard Stadium.

It was all the more galling for being so improbable. To overhaul the Crimson, the Big Green, which had trailed all game, in the last minute had to go 96 yards, the final 43 traveled on a Hail Mary pass from quarterback Derek Kyler, deflected by Harvard defenders, and caught by receiver Masaki Aerts. That one play negated a brilliant defensive effort by the Crimson, which had kept the Football Championship Subdivision’s leading offense out of the end zone until the final gun.

Dartmouth’s victory runs its record to 7-0 and 4-0 in the Ivy League—the exact marks attained by Princeton, whom the Big Green plays next week in a de facto championship showdown. (See “Coming Up,” below.) Harvard drops to 4-3 overall and 2-2 in league play; the loss effectively eliminates the Crimson from the Ivy title race.

This defeat was a stale madeleine that evoked a remembrance of losses past. There was a last-play field goal by Dartmouth that won the 1971 game for the Green, 16-13. A last-play field goal by Penn (preceded by a questionable roughing-the-kicker penalty) that gave the Quakers a 23-21 win at Franklin Field in 1982. More recently, in 2012, there was Princeton’s 29-point, fourth-quarter comeback that provided the Tigers with a 39-34 victory. Switching sports, this loss dredges up sad recollections of the 2011 Ivy League men’s basketball playoff, which Princeton pulled out on a buzzer-beater 63-62.

But for sheer devastation, this was as bad as it gets, mainly because the Crimson controlled the game until the last minute. Harvard’s Tim Murphy, who has been coaching for 33 seasons (the last 26 in Cambridge), was asked in the postgame media conference if this was the toughest loss of his career. “It definitely is,” he answered. (Pouring salt in the wounds, it came against his lifelong friend, Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens.) “To say that we got our guts ripped out might be the understatement of the century.”

 

The game was an old-school slugfest, one you might have seen in 1919. Both offenses were held at bay by rugged defenses. It may have helped Harvard a bit that Dartmouth’s first-string quarterback, Jared Gerbino, a terrific power runner, left the game for good near the end of the first half with a leg injury, to be replaced by Kyler.

Harvard scored first—a rarity this season—on a 41-yard field goal by senior Jake McIntyre early in the first quarter. Harvard 3, Dartmouth 0. In the second quarter, McIntyre missed on a shorter try, after which Dartmouth’s Connor Davis pumped through a 44-yarder with 59 seconds left in the first half. At the break, it was 3-3. The Crimson had controlled much of the action, outgaining the Green 195 yards to 107.

The second half started as a rerun. After Harvard reached the Dartmouth 18, its drive stalled and McIntyre drilled a 38-yard field goal. Harvard 6, Dartmouth 3. And there the score sat, for almost 25 more minutes. McIntyre did miss on another field-goal try, the result of a bad snap. (Clearly, those two missed field goals would figure into the outcome.)

Cut to 1:31 left in the game. Harvard has just failed to make a first down on a third-and-one run by junior Devin Darrington, after which Crimson junior Sean McKeogh has placed a punt on the Dartmouth eight. On first down, Kyler is sacked by Harvard sophomore defensive tackle Truman Jones, who strips the ball. Crimson senior defensive lineman Brogan McPartland recovers on the 10. Game over, right?

Dartmouth has two timeouts left. It uses the first after Darrington runs to the six. On the next play, Darrington runs right and attempts to reach the end zone. He gets as far as the two, and here he makes a fatal mistake. Instead of staying in bounds and keeping the clock moving, he goes out of bounds, stopping it. Now the Green does not have to use its final timeout. This may have been the knife edge of the denouement. “Clock management, somehow in the heat of passion, in the heat of a game, can go out the window real fast,” Murphy would say later, disconsolately.

On the next play Darrington is thrown for a four-yard loss. Now Dartmouth does use its final timeout.  Fourth and goal for Harvard, with 1:06 left. What to do? Kick a field goal and take the points, thus taking a tying Dartmouth field goal off the table? Murphy opts to go for the touchdown.  “The thought was, you don’t want to get a kick blocked,” he said later. “At the end of the day, they’re gonna need a touchdown to win the game. And they have to kick the extra point. So mathematically you’re looking at the clock. They’ve got 59 seconds to go how many yards?” On the next play, Darrington is stopped for no gain. Dartmouth ball.

To get downfield, Kyler cannily throws medium-length passes to wideouts Hunter Hagdorn and Drew Estrada. A 22-yarder to Estrada moves the ball to the Harvard 43. Eight seconds left. Kyler runs up behind center and spikes the ball, which stops the clock. Six seconds left.

Now it is desperation time. Kyler takes the snap and somehow eludes several Harvard rushers. Finally, he throws it into the end zone. At the goal line, Harvard junior defensive back Isaiah Wingfield has a bead on it. He leaps—and is jolted by teammate Wes Ogsbury, who also is going for the ball. “We had a bunch of guys deep ready to knock the ball down,” said Ogsbury, the team captain. “We’re all looking down to the line of scrimmage. It looks like [Kyler] got sacked twice. He heaves one up. We’re all trying to make a play on it. It takes the wrong couple of bounces. We wanted it to bounce down but it bounced up, for whatever reason.” It bounces, for whatever reason, into the hands of Aerts. Touchdown! Game over! Dartmouth 9, Harvard 6.

“Every Thursday it’s the last play of the practice,” said Murphy of the Hail Mary pass-defense drill. “It always ends with a spike [batting down the ball]. Every Thursday at 6:30 p.m.”  He shook his head.

What does Murphy tell his players after such a crusher? “There’s not much solace,” he said. “But if you’ve given it everything you possibly can, you’ll have no regrets. Plenty of pain. But no regrets.”

 

Tidbits: With 1.5 sacks against Dartmouth, senior defensive lineman Brogan McPartland now has 7.0, leading the Ivy League in the category….Junior Devin Darrington rushed for 102 yards, his third game this season with more than 100….Saturday’s attendance, 20,112, was the largest for a non-Yale game at the Stadium since September 19, 2008, when 21,704 saw the Crimson defeat Holy Cross 25-24.

Coming up: On Saturday Harvard travels to New York to play Ivy rival Columbia. Kickoff: 1 p.m. The game will be telecast on SNY, streamed on ESPN+, and broadcast on WRCA 1330 AM, 106.1 FM and 92.9 FM-HD2, and on WHRB FM 95.3. The Lions are 2-5 overall and 1-3 in Ivy League play. Harvard has won the last 15 in the series, including 52-14 last year in Cambridge. In a rivalry that began in 1877, Harvard leads 62-14–1.

Meanwhile, only a few blocks away, at Yankee Stadium, unbeaten Princeton will be playing unbeaten Dartmouth. (A rematch of last year’s battle of unbeatens at Princeton, won by the Tigers 14-9.) This is believed to be the first time that two Ivy games will take place at the same time in the same city—either a stroke of genius or poor planning. Actually, the game is part of College Football’s 150th anniversary celebration. It will be played 150 years to the week of the first contest. Princeton was a participant in that game, on November 6, 1869, in New Brunswick, New Jersey. (On November 7, 1869, no doubt, came the first calls for the abolition of football.) The Tigers were defeated by Rutgers 6-4. For football’s first half-century, the Ivy League schools set the template—huge stadiums, overemphasis, braggin’ rights, frenzied recruiting (yes, even at Harvard), eligibility squabbles, academic probation, tinhorn dictator coaches—for what became a national mania, one that has afforded millions of followers equal measures of pleasure and, as we saw this week, pain.

  

A CENTURY AGO: THE ROAD TO PASADENA, GAME 6

On November 1, 1919, Harvard withstood an aerial barrage from visiting Springfield and achieved two aims: victory and maintaining its shutout streak. In the triumph, back Eddie Casey, A.B. 1919, scored two touchdowns. Knowing that they could not match the Crimson’s power, the Chiefs (as they then were called) attempted 31 passes—an astonishing number for the time—and completed 11. One almost resulted in a touchdown, but it was batted down by Harvard captain Billy Murray, A.B. 1918. (Casey and Murray had served in the military during World War I.) Maybe we needed Murray defending against the Hail Mary this past Saturday!

 

The record so far:
September 24    Harvard 53, Bates 0
October 4           Harvard 17, Boston College 0
October 11          Harvard 35, Colby 0
October  18        Harvard 7, Brown 0
October 25         Harvard 47, Virginia 0

Crosby Blitz Beach in Crosby, England   

Cache   

The detailed masonry of prewar Liverpool is gradually being washed away.

Five miles north of Liverpool, what remains of the city before World War II is strewn across two miles of coastline. From pebble-sized remnants of bricks eroded by the adjacent Irish Sea, to large keystones of major civic buildings, the expanse of Crosby Beach is a stark reminder of the conflict that consumed the world in the middle of the 20th century.

Liverpool was one of the most heavily hit British cities by the German Luftwaffe, the Nazi air force. The blitz came in waves, with barrages beginning in 1940 and continuing throughout the war. In total, the Liverpool Blitz killed nearly 4,000 people, and rendered over 70,000 homeless. The German bombing was indiscriminate—banks, churches, single family homes—no structure was spared from the aerial onslaught.

In the rush to clear the streets and make the city livable, some of the rubble was shipped abroad as ballast, and much was carted out of town, to Crosby Beach, just to get it out of the way. There it was unceremoniously dumped, as a devil-may-care bedazzling of the seashore. While some report that the rubble was set there as a barrier to erosion, and others say the rubble may have been placed there to impede a potential German invasion by foot, there is no conclusive evidence for either claim.

Following World War II, Liverpool, like many British cities, found itself strapped for cash, and many areas hit by the blitz were merely filled in, turned into parking lots, or languished as piles of pulverized stone and splintered woodwork for decades. Since there was hardly money to get the city back on its feet, very little mind was paid to cleaning up the beach that had become cluttered with houses and civic structures deemed impossible to rebuild. Over the decades, the Irish Sea lapped away at the rubble, softening the crisp marble finishes of decorative pre-war design, and turning many of the proper, rectangular bricks into oblong red stones. While some of the rubble is broken and transformed beyond recognition, some pieces of humanity shine through: a gravestone; the shattered sign of a storefront; an old jumper, caught in the debris.

The rubble stretches from the banks of Crosby Beach up to the village of Hightown, though more crops up further north at Formby Point, part of the British National Trust, and where British soldiers prepared for the D-Day invasions. Though there are no formal demarcations of the site or the rubble’s origin, the expanse of the wreckage is a testament to the lives uprooted and overturned by the bloodiest conflict in human history.

In October a partnership of Utah organizations submitted a proposal to the USGS 3DEP FY19/20 BAA for over 18,217 square miles for 2020 Lidar acquisition projects. A couple projects (i.e., Kane County [Greater Sevier Addition] and Strawberry River) have already begun.

While we’re months away from any preliminary or final funding decisions, the partnership is sharing this proposed project area map in advance in an effort to promote coordination between the partners and avoid duplication of effort in these project areas.

The proposed areas have the following square mileage: 3DEP Proposal

Projects Already Underway

  • Kane County (QL2) - 6,055
  • Strawberry River (QL1 and 4-band aerial photography) - 88

Proposed Projects

  • Wasatch Back (QL1 or QL2) - 1,103
  • Iron County (QL1 and QL2) - 3,067
  • NRCS (QL1 or QL2) - 2,706
  • Sanpete and Sevier Counties (QL2) - 2,397
  • Garfield County (QL2) - 2,891

The Air Force's first stealth aircraft, which was retired a decade ago, was spotted flying over Nevada again

  • Not one, but two F-117s were photographed flying together over Tonopah Test Range in October.
  • The F-117, the Air Force's first stealth aircraft, was officially retired in 2008, but the service has hung on to a few of them, and they're still spotted in the air over the West.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

It's not a secret that the US Air Force is still flying the F-117 Nighthawk stealth aircraft at Tonopah Test Range (TTR) although the iconic Black Jet was officially retired from active service in 2008.

As explained in a detailed story, back in 2014, after a few videos and photographs had already appeared online, the US Air Force admitted that the Nighthawk was kept in a "Type 1000" storage at TTR, which meant that the type is had to be maintained until called into active service. Desert conditions of Nevada are perfect for maintaining the stealth jets in pristine conditions (due to the low level of humidity and hence, lower probability of corrosion), hence the reason to operate the enigmatic aircraft from TTR.

North Carolina schools use mapping tools to improve school safety

Students and teachers may participate in safety evacuation drills on a regular basis, but worrying about safety isn’t an educator or a student’s job, according to Hope Morgan, a technology official with the North Carolina Department of Public Safety. That’s why in 2016, in the midst of a rise in active shooter incidents, the state chose to develop two applications that generate safety plans and have mapped more than 2,400 K-12 and higher education facilities throughout the state  — potentially shaving valuable time off of responses and evacuations. School officials can upload information and schematics into the School Risk Management Planning Tool, or SRMP, to design risk management plans. Another application, called the State Emergency Response Application, or SERA, converts that data into detailed aerial maps and updates the representations in real time when changes are made in the planning tool. Public safety officials can use the tools to coordinate with school administrators […]

Seorang Melayu M'sia, Di Balik Pembinaan Royal Clock Tower, Makkah.   

Cache   

royal-clock-tower-makkah-aerial

KISAH ini diceritakan oleh Tuan Azmil Abrar, seorang Pengurus Pembangunan dan Kawalan Konten di TV Al Hijrah.
Ia berkisarkan tentang Tuan Wan Nazri Wan Aria, seorang Jurutera Struktur yang dipertanggungjawabkan sebagai Ketua Konsultan untuk pembinaan Royal Clock Tower, Makkah oleh sebuah syarikat terkemuka di German, SL Rasch.
Struktur binaan ini disifatkan sebagai the Miracles of Modern Engineering adalah mengkagumkan, dan kisah bagaimana seorang lelaki yang dibesarkan di Segambut, dan kemudian dipercayai oleh sebuah syarikat ternama German, adalah lebih mengkagumkan.
Kita ikuti kisahnya di bawah:
A MALAYSIAN LEGEND – FIND YOUR TURNING POINT
Siapakah lelaki muda, multi millionaire berusia 33 tahun di bawah ini? Mungkin ramai yang tidak mengenali beliau. Tetapi semalam adalah hari yang sangat mengujakan saya. Saya berpeluang untuk beliau yang saya sifatkan sebagai a Malaysian Legend, A Living Legend.
Nama beliau adalah Wan Nazri Wan Aria. Apa hebatnya beliau?
Royal Clock Tower, Makkah yang disifatkan sebagai the Miracles of Modern Engineering. (Boleh tonton pelbagai video berkenaan pembinaan Royal Clock Tower itu di Youtube). Dinyatakan di pelbagai tempat bahawa Clock Tower it dibina oleh sebuah syarikat terkemuka di German, SL Rasch.
Selain itu, projek pembesaran Masjidil Haram agar dapat memuatkan 10 juta jemaah haji juga telah disiap dirangka dan dirancang.
Berdasarkan kajian dilakukan, dapat diketahui bahawa individu yang dilantik selaku ketua untuk menjalankan projek Clock Tower berkenaan serta bertanggungjawab merangka pelan pembesaran Mekah adalah seorang anak muda dari Malaysia, bernama Wan Nazri Wan Aria.
Kebetulan dia sedang berada di Malaysia, maka kesempatan itu digunakan saya untuk bertemu beliau.
Kehebatan sebelum ini memang diketahui berdasarkan kajian. Tetapi setelah duduk berbual, banyak lagi perkara hebat diketahui mengenai individu ini.
Beliau berasal dari sebuah keluarga yang susah dan menetap di sebuah kawasan belum membangun di Kuala Lumpur. Bukan lulusan mana mana sekolah hebat. Hanya bersekolah biasa di Segambut. Kemudian menyambung pelajaran dan berjaya lulus Degree di dalam engineering dari UiTM dan pada mulanya bekerja di sebuah syarikat tempatan. Pada usia 25 tahun, beliau berasa tidak puas dan ingin mencabar diri.
Maka beliau meletakkan jawatan dan bertekad menyambung belajar peringkat Master di Germany menggunakan wang sendiri.
This is what i always said “all successful people had their turning point some point in life. We just have to make ours.
Mengapa Germany? Sebab beliau merasakan bahawa di situlah tempat paling utama dan paling mencabar untuk seseorang engineer di Dunia. Walaupun pada mulanya tidak pandai berbahasa Germany, beliau telah memaksa diri untuk belajar segera. Sebab semua pelajaran adalah di dalam bahasa berkenaan. Belajar Engineering dah susah, belajar peringkat Master dah susah, belajar bahasa german dah susah, apatah lagi belajar kesemuanya serentak!
But he did. And he did very well. Selepas berjaya mencapai keputusan yang cemerlang, pelbagai syarikat besar terutamanya di dalam otomobil berebut menawarkan beliau kerja. Namun semuanya ditolak beliau di atas minat beliau kepada Structural Engineering. Maka beliau telah memohon kerja di sebuah syarikat SL Rasch, sebuah syarikat Germany yang terkenal di dalam bidang structural engineering.
Pada mulanya, syarikat berkenaan tidak minat untuk mengambil beliau kerana mereka tidak percaya akan kebolehan engineer bukan dari Germany atau Eropah. Kerana bagi mereka, orang Germany paling pandai di dalam bidang engineering dan mereka sudah mempunyai ramai German Engineers.
Namun, the boss opened the door for him. “Impress me in 6 months or you have to go”, he said. Impress him he did. Dia terus ditawarkan kerja berkenaan.
Kemudian syarikat berkenaan telah berjaya mendapatkan tender membina Royal Clock Tower di Mekkah, melalui design yang dibuat oleh Wan Nazri. Atas kejayaan itu, SL Rasch telah menghantar Wan Nazri sebagai ketua konsultan untuk projek berkenaan bagi mengawasi pembinaannya dari A – Z.
Engineer Arab sangat skeptikal terhadap Engineer dari Asia juga. Tetapi memandangkan Wan Nazri datang dari German, beliau sangat dihormati, apatah lagi beliau memperlihatkan kecekapan dan kepakaran beliau. Sehingga ada syarikat besar di arab menawarkan gaji ratusan ribu sebulan untuk memancing beliau.
Kini beliau ada di Malaysia dengan tujuan kata beliau adalah untuk mencari bakat – bakat baru di Malaysia dan melatih mereka bagi mengenengahkan mereka di peringkat dunia. Beliau tidak mencari engineer yang berpengalaman, tetapi beliau mengumpulkan ramai anak muda yang baru graduate dan mempunyai potensi besar.
Beliau kata, the world is a different game altogether. Before accepting any project outside to give to my fellow Malaysian, i need to prepare them first.
Seorang world player, tetapi tidak lupa untuk kembali ke negara asal bagi memberi ruang dan peluang kepada anak muda lain. Kata beliau, “my boss at SL Rasch helped to open the door for me, now i am helping to open the door for others. I am just returning the favour”.
Bila diterangkan kepada beliau mengenai projek yang sedang kami usahakan, beliau sangat supportive dan berjanji memberi apa jua bantuan yang boleh beliau berikan.
Soalan terakhir saya, “Encik Wan, boleh cakap melayu tak?”
“Sudah tentu, saya orang Melayu”

This meeting is 2 hours and 49 minutes long.  If you are going to watch the meeting, you will get a lot more out of the meeting if you know what is under discussion. If you are going to watch it, you can probably watch in double time and not miss much context. To access the agenda, agenda analysis and my commentary on the agenda, follow this link.

I am providing my summary of the meeting below. However, be advised that I only hit the high points and report on what is important to me, so you may want to watch it for yourself. I do not even attempt to form an opinion on each zoning bill and normally only report on those that are controversial or are bills disapproved by the Planning Commission. Also, if you view the minutes of the meeting you can find out from the official record what happened without watching. Unfortunately, the minutes are often not posted until a week later. You can access the minutes at this link.

Followings Pat Nolan's introduction and summary of what is important that is on the agenda, the meeting is graveled to order at timestamp 8.55. Following the prayer, pledge and ceremonial presentation of a recognition of a member of the armed forces, the Council gets down to business with consideration of elections and confirmations at timestamp 23:08.

Elections and confirmations
Election of School Board members: There are four nominees. A nomination speech if offered by the nominating council member for each of the candidates and then each candidate addresses the Council.  Player-Peters was elected with the votes of 26 council member. The runner-up who got 14 votes was Kevin Stacy, a licensed teacher who has worked as a schools administrator for Metro, Clarksville and Williamson County. His area of specialty is administering English as a Second Language programs. There really does not seem to be an ideological consideration in this vote. Some of the conservatives voted for one but some conservatives voted for the other and the same among the more progressive council members.
There were several other position in other agencies filled but none are of very much interest to the general public. Seats were filled on the Industrial Development Board, which is of interest to a lot of people in segments of the business community, but I do not know enough about the candidates to have much interest who won the seats. Also seats were filled on the Community Education Commission.
Resolutions and Bills on Public Hearing.  The Council begins Public Hearing at timestamp 1:14:00.
The resolutions are exempting businesses from the minimum distance requirements for obtaining a beer permit. The bills are zoning bills. On bills, public hearing is occurring on Second Reading of the bill. None of the bills have been disapproved by the Planning Commission. Very few people speak on any of the items on Public Hearing. This is the only item on public hearing I find of interest: 
Bill BL2019-3   authorizes Metro to opt into the historic properties tax abatement program under state law and would establish a historic properties review board. This would give a property tax break to historic properties that are restored. I support this. I am a strong advocate of property rights and do not want to prohibit someone from tearing down a historic property but also want to see old significant buildings saved.  If we can incentivize people in preserving historic properties I favor it. This passes and is referred back to the Planning Committee for more work.
Resolutions. The consideration of resolutions begins at timestamp  1:43:19. Most resolutions are lumped together and passed on the "consent agenda."  If there is no dissension then the resolution is considered to have passed unanimously by all present.  Any member may have an item taken off of the consent agenda or have an abstention or "no" vote recorded. They may avoid voting in favor of a item on consent by being out of the room when the vote is taken. At the start of consideration of resolutions, Councilman Glover has Resolution RS2019-86 and Resolution RS2019-87 pulled off of consent.  I am so proud of him for this action. For way too long council members who don't agree with super liberal politically correct memorializing resolution have, nevertheless,  let them just slid on through without opposition.  It is time for that practice to end! These two resolutions are explained below.
Resolution RS2019-86  "request that the President of the United States and Congress of the United States enact comprehensive immigration reform and give Nashville’s qualified undocumented neighbors a path to citizenship and an opportunity to fully participate in the life of our community without fear." The resolution's sponsor, Councilman Robert Nash, speaks in favor of the resolution. At Large Council Member Zulfat Suara, Council Member Sandra Sepulveda, and Council Member Delishia Danielle Porterfield speak in favor and no one speaks in opposition. The vote is by machine and is 34 in favor, 3 abstentions, and 3 not voting.

While someone could have voted "no" or at least have explained why they were voting "abstain,"  I am not unhappy with this outcome.  The bill is so vaguely worded that one could reason that their understanding of what they want in comprehensive immigration reform is different than what someone else wants. I am sure President Trump's favors comprehensive immigration reform if it gave him adequate funding to build a wall and funded more immigration agents and courts and made some other changes to immigration policy.  Also, this really does nothing. It changes no policy and spends no money. It simply expresses the view of those who voted for it. If I had a vote, I would have voted "abstain."  See timestamp 2:03:07- 2:10:14 to see the deliberation. When the minutes are posted, I will report how each member of the Council voted.

Resolution RS2019-87 recognizing November 20, 2019 as Transgender Day of Remembrance in Nashville and Davidson County, Tennessee.The sponsor, Councilman Withers speaks in favor. No one speaks against it. I do not blame anyone for not speaking in opposition, but my objection is that we should not be pandering to the advocates of identity politics and that any loss of life is important and that there are many other groups of people at least, if not more, deserving of a day of remembrance. I express this view in this essay:How about a day of remembrance for American military killed in action? For policemen killed in action? For firemen? For babies killed by abortionist? For Americans killed by illegal aliens? For ....
This resolution changes no policy nor spends any money and amounts to nothing more that those who voted in favor of it recognizing that date for that purpose. The vote is taken by machine and is 34 in favor, 2 abstentions and 4 not voting. Once the minutes are available, I will post the record of how members voted.
On the above two resolutions, I was unsure why there was a machine rather than voice vote. On the second one, the vote was taken by voice vote, and the Vice Mayor had moved to the next item of business and then came back to the resolution and had a machine vote.  He then explained this was because a Council rule requires a recorded vote on any resolution with a "no" vote or an abstention.
 Bills on Second Reading. These are the ones that I find of interest.

Bill BL2019-4 prohibits aerial advertising.  I see no logic for this bill and if I served in the council I would vote against it.  It is deferred one meeting..
Bill BL2019-31 would require a permit for all new fencing. This was deferred one meeting.  
Bills on Third Reading. This is the only one of interest.
Bill BL2019-1 raises the parking violation fee for most parking violations from $11 to $25. It passes. With the scarcity of parking places and the increase in the value of a parking space it seems reasonable to increase this fee. This will help fund parking meter modernization.
