The City of Tacoma is in the midst of a once per decade review of the city charter, the document which "lays out the rules for the operation of pretty much every aspect of the City in 21 pages" (quoting from an Exit133 article). This decade, discussion is emerging around whether the City should move to a so called "strong mayor" system of governance. The conversation has recently gotten somewhat heated, with participants arguing passionately for one form of governance or another. Faculty at UW Tacoma have planned a public panel discussion on the charter revision process. Philip Hall on the UW Tacoma campus. Bill Baarsma, former mayor of Tacoma Michael Sullivan, UW Tacoma history instructor Lyle Quasim, co chair, Tacoma Pierce County Black Collective Lyz Kurnitz Thurlow, Tacoma Pierce County League of Women Voters 1st Vice President John Ladenburg, former Tacoma city council member and former Pierce County Executive The event is sponsored by the Urban Studies Program at UW Tacoma, the Center for the Study of Community and Society, and the Center for Leadership and Social Responsibility. Ali Modarres, Director of Urban Studies at UW Tacoma, makes the following comments on the value of universities like UW Tacoma holding public discussions of major civic activities: City Charters are akin to the constitution of a city. They allow the governing bodies and citizens to come to an agreement regarding governance and procedures for the structure of decision making and delivery of urban services. As such, they are important documents that allow all of us to define and refine how a city is run. Tacoma has the exciting opportunity to revisit and potentially revise its charter. Urban serving universities, such as UW Tacoma, see it as their responsibility to act as neutral spaces for community dialogues on important issues. Given that city charter revisions rarely attract a lot of attention from citizens, in March, we began a conversation regarding hosting a community event on our campus that would allow interested citizens to participate in a dialogue regarding the upcoming charter revision. We at UW Tacoma value the role that we can play in bringing a productive political discourse to campus and availing our students with an educational opportunity to learn about an important issue like charter reform. As such, we hope to have residents, students, and faculty members at this event, engaging in a fruitful conversation about what city charters are, why cities frequently revisit them, and what these revisions might mean to all of us.

Avoid any unnecessary movements or move to a spot while waiting for an action. For example, once you have handed a customer a menu, walk over to an available oven or one almost finished baking. That way you are ready to start baking their cake as soon as they make a decision. Then, wait there until the cake stops baking. If another customer comes in, hand him a menu after you picked up a baked cake and are on your way to the frosting machine. Different types of customers have different "personalities." Each one has a different level of patience and likes different TV channels and cake toppers. Your first two major types are very patient. First is the delivery man, followed by the granny (or old lady) in May. In June, the businessman makes his first appearance (you'll recognize him by his cell phone). He is moderately patient except when he is on vacation, then he is very impatient. The kid arrives in July and is very impatient. Luckily, he loves cupcakes and they will increase his mood (and hearts) considerably. The college student (redhead wearing green and purple) arrives in August. She is moderately patient like the businessman. A bride shows up as well, and she's extremely impatient. There are also four impatient holiday customers that only show up one month a year: Cupid arrives in February, the Easter Bunny arrives in March, Dracula arrives in October and Santa Claus in December. A food critic may also show up at some point. When he does, consider him a priority customer because if he leaves unhappy, you'll receive a bad review. The kitchen comes standard with one oven and one frost o matic. However, two additional ovens and Frost O Matics can be purchased. You can also purchase a cupcake oven, television, two topper machines, a display case and new shoes. Once purchased, all of these items can be upgraded. Additional ovens and Frost O Matics or new shoes will help you serve your customers faster. The topper machines increase the prices of your cake and help you make more money and reach your goal. The cupcake oven and the TV both help keep customers happy. The ovens are faster then the Frost O Matics, so keep purchasing/upgrading the Frost O Matic before the ovens, but alternate them (purchase a Frost O Matic, then an oven, then upgrade a Frost O Matic, then the oven, and so on). Upgrade depending on your own playing style and need. If you are good at multi tasking, get several ovens and frosting machines. If you have trouble keeping orders straight, make the ovens and Frost O Matics faster before adding new ones. However, you should always get both topping machines before upgrading them since you have to purchase all four toppers before making them faster (and that takes a lot of money). For best results, save your game before each major purchase. That way you can go back and choose not to buy if it doesn't work out. The decorating case is one of the cheapest upgrades to buy and a great one to have in the beginning. While it can be used to set any mistakes you make, it can also be used to up your total. If you understand how to make multilayer cakes, go ahead and make one up in February or March the first year. Although no one will ask for one until the tutorial shows you how, customers will buy one if it is on display. Just be careful not to set a cake there too late in the day or else no one will buy it (and the cost is deducted from your total). Also, you should try to bake and frost a cake for the display case before the first customer arrives. Air Jordan Spizike New York Knicks Orange,Courthouse Wash is a short, but very pretty canyon near the entrance to Arches National Park. You won't see any arches in Courthouse but it is, nevertheless, a pleasant half day walk. The canyon almost always has at least some water in it; consequently it is filled with cottonwoods and willows. The easiest place to walk is usually in the stream bed, so you should wear sneakers or other shoes suitable for wading. There are deer and raccoon tracks in the canyon, but the animal you are sure to see a lot of is frogs. One of Utah's best hikes, Lower Courthouse Wash Trail is located near Moab, UT.

The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is being billed as the largest trade deal Canada has ever signed, given that the EU's 28 countries comprise a $17 trillion integrated economy larger than the North American free trade area. Some 98 per cent of all tariffs on goods travelling between Canada and the EU will be removed, and trade is projected to increase by 23 per cent. But the devil, as they say, is in the details, and so far the Harper government has released few details. Reporters got access to some CETA documents on Friday, but they were vague and, in the words of the Globe and Mail's Bill Curry, the documents "don't list what Canada gave up." The Harper government's political opponents are already pressuring the prime minister to release the full text of the trade treaty. "Today's announcement contains a lot of hype. Canadians are still left waiting to read the fine print. Why won't this government just release the text of this deal and let Canadians judge it for themselves?" NDP MP David Christopherson asked. "If this deal is so important, shouldn't Canadians have the chance to accept or reject it?" asked Maude Barlow, head of the Council of Canadians. That may be a little difficult, as Harper signed an "agreement in principle" in Brussels on Friday, and not the actual text, parts of which have yet to be hammered out. All the same, Barlow's group has declared a "two year campaign to stop CETA ratification." But Harper says this sort of thing is folly. "I think anyone who opposes [CETA] will lose and make a big historic mistake politically for so doing," the prime minister said. It may be some time yet before we have all the details, but here's what we know so far: The trade pact needs the consent of Canada's provinces and EU member states to become law. So far, it's looking good on the provincial front: Quebec, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Saskatchewan's leaders have all praised the deal, and Ontario seems open to it assuming it can get compensation for some of its industries that will be harmed by the deal. Pictured: Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso shake hands following a joint media availability Friday, October 18, 2013 at the European Commission in Brussels, Belgium. Canada will partially extend patent protection for brand name drugs, which would delay the introduction of cheaper generics by up to two years. Officials say it will be eight years before any impact of these changes show up as higher costs for provincial drug plans. Earlier reports have suggested the cost to the health care system of extended drug patents could run between billion and billion annually. Jim Keon, president of the Canadian Generic Pharmaceutical Association: The EU trade deal will "delay market entry of cost saving generic prescription medicines in Canada in the future, increasing health care costs for provinces, employers that sponsor drug plans for their employees and Canadians who pay for their prescription medicines out of pocket." The federal government has suggested it will compensate provinces for higher costs as a result of the agreement. Domestic car producers will be able to increase sales into Europe to 100,000 units from about 10,000 today under relaxed rules. The EU will phase out its 10 per cent tariff on imports, and Canada will phase out a 6 per cent tariff on European car imports. That could be good news for Canadian fans of European luxury cars, as those vehicles will be cheaper. But that, in turn, could be bad news for Canadian auto manufacturers. Dennis DesRosiers of DesRosiers Auto Analysts: "I don't think anyone can definitively know what the impact of the current EU Agreement will be on the automotive sector. . The [Canadian] industry peaked in the year 2000 and has been struggling since and, indeed, just finished one of its worse decades in history and continues to deteriorate. Was this the long term result of FTA and NAFTA? We don't know but it could be." Canadian beef farmers increase their quota by 50,000 tonnes, in addition to 15,000 tonnes for high quality beef. Pork farmers will see their quota rise to 80,000 tonnes from the current 6,000. But producers will have to convert to hormone free product for the European market, which experts say can add about 15 per cent to costs. Martin Unrau, president of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association: "The removal of long standing barriers in this agreement, such as high tariffs, finally enables Canadian beef producers to benefit from the high value that the European beef market represents." Dairy Farmers of Ontario: "It will take income from Canadian dairy farmers and their communities and give it to the European industry." Companies will be allowed to bid on major government procurement contracts right down to the municipal level. A joint study showed the new access will give European companies leeway to bid on federal contracts worth between billion and billion an year, and municipal contracts worth billion a year. Critics say that, because of the common practice of "hiring Canadian" in government contracts, EU access to them could mean job losses in Canada. Trade Justice Network: "Canadian governments would lose a powerful tool for spurring job creation and economic development." Labour and consumer groups fear CETA could lead to the privatization of Canada's water supply and infrastructure. According to early leaks from the negotiations, Canada did not try to protect water resources as part of the trade deal. The Council of Canadians writes: "This deal will give French companies Suez and Veolia, the two biggest private water operations in the world, access to run our water services for profit. Under a recent edict, the Harper government has tied federal funding of municipal water infrastructure construction or upgrading to privatization of water services. Private water operators charge far higher rates than public operators and cut corners when it comes to source protection." Air Jordan Spizike New York Knicks Orange The amount of RAM your computer has is essentially its capacity to run multiple programs at once. My computer, 1.7 gigabytes, and it still runs slowly at times. Anything that is 2 gigabytes and upwards is going to run relatively fast. The more complex and memory consuming the program is, the less RAM there will be available to run other processes. Check with your computer manufacturer on upgrades that are available for your computer to make it run faster. Another way to make your PC faster is to free up disk space. You can use the Windows Disk Cleanup tool by clicking start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools and then Disk Cleanup. I've done this, and most of the time since my computer is already running slow, it will freeze, or do something else that makes me want to throw my computer through the nearest window. I found CCleaner while searching online. It's free, doesn't give your computer spyware or malware, and it works great. Make your computer faster by speeding up access to data. Like the Disk Cleanup tool, the Disk Defragmenter is also located in the System Tools tab. The Disk Defragmenter will allow your computer to run faster and more efficiently by making it easier to access files and data. Disk Defragmentation should be done every two weeks or so. To detect and repair disk errors you can run the registry checker that Windows supplies, or purchase a third part registry cleaner, which is probably your best bet. To use the Windows registry tool, go to My Computer, right click the hard disk you want to check, and click Properties. Click the Tools tab and click the Check Now button. In the Check Disk dialog box, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box and then click Start. There are plenty of free registry checkers online also. Your computer may be slowed by spyware, malware or adware that are for all intensive purposes right now, are just things that make your computer run slow, bad and in a generally unpleasant manner. Removing all of these things can make your PC faster instantly. These are like a weight that your PC is carrying and will feel the effects immediately once they are removed. Get rid of all the programs you don't use. This will remove programs that are just taking up space and bogging down your processing speed. Click on your Start panel and find the Control Panel. Click on Add/Remove Programs. A list will compile of all the programs that are currently installed on your computer. Uninstall or remove the ones that you don't need or use and you are done. This is probably the simplest way to make your PC faster. If you are tired of waiting forever for your computer to run smoothly after it starts up, here's a quick fix for that. Remove those programs that start every time you start your computer. Now, realize that some programs, like AOL Instant Messenger and other messaging services need to be deactivate within the program so they no longer start after you start your computer. On the Programs menu within the Start menu, there is a Start Up tab where you can right click and delete the programs that start. This will get you up and running more quickly.
