Florida Coastal School of Law says a “procedural matter” resulted in its termination from the federal student loan program, triggering the process for closing the school.

By direction of the American Bar Association, Florida Coastal submitted a teach-out plan May 7 that would allow the school to maintain its accreditation while its students are allowed to transfer to other accredited law schools to complete their education.

Florida Coastal President and Dean Peter Goplerud said May 11 that the U.S. Department of Education terminated the law school’s participation in the federal student loan program in April when Sterling Capital Partners, the

Bizar Male

New York State Senator Pete Harckham and his colleagues in the Senate passed legislation (S.4485) that will include landlord training as part of neighborhood preservation company activities. This bill will educate and support current or prospective landlords and promote safe and responsibly managed housing opportunities for low- and moderate-income residents.

“With more and more and more residents looking into different housing options in New York, it makes sense that we work to ensure that today’s landlord—and tomorrow’s, too—are prepared for their responsibilities,” said Harckham. “Communicating with landlords and keeping them informed of legalities and best practices will help

Bizar Male

Listen to article

I must admit that I have the greatest respect for the social pressure group, “OccupyGhana.”

Therefore, I do not find it surprising that OccupyGhana is currently attracting headlines by preaching that “Galamsey is illegal and it must not be fought with illegal means”!

But wait a minute: what “illegal means” is the Government using to fight galamsey?

According to OccupyGhana, “there are clear laws stipulated in the Constitution, laying down sanctions and punishments for people engaged in the illegal act.” Therefore, the Government should “enforce those laws.”

OccupyGhana was reacting to photos and videos circulating in the
