Parker is one of those standard violence thrillers, with Jason Statham as one of those heroes who can push a knife blade through the palm of his hand in order to get a grip on the villain, and Michael Chiklis, who can take six bullets in the chest at close range and not even be slowed down.
We’ve seen a dramatic change in our weather this week. Wichita recorded record high temperatures on Sunday and Monday but a cold front passed over us on Tuesday, bringing much colder temperatures and a light mixture of rain and snow.
Through Friday, we’ll see daytime high temperatures in Wichita in the 40s and overnight lows dropping into the 20s.
Just in time for the weekend, temperatures will moderate with highs climbing back into the 50s and overnight lows in the 30s.
A bill in the House would limit the bargaining rights of teachers in Kansas.
A committee heard from supporters and opponents of the bill Tuesday. Supporters of the measure want administrators to have more flexibility to hire, fire and assign teachers.
The bill would take out some bargaining rights teachers currently have and would limit what can be negotiated by unions. For example, teacher evaluation processes could no longer be part of contract negotiations.
Some lawmakers say we need to look at new ways of recruiting, hiring and evaluating teachers.
“Momentum” is a word that we don’t usually think of as having a technical origin, even though we hear it used a lot by reporters during election season. A typical use would be something like “Senator Belfry’s campaign seems to have gained momentum following his recent speech to the Bloom County Chamber of Commerce.” There seems to be nothing technical about that.
