ake 28 communities, spread them
over almost two million of the most formidable square kilometres
on the Earth’s surface, top it off with the daunting task of
implementing a new government, and you’ve got a recipe that would
scare off most would-be public servants. Yet this is exactly
the task facing the people of Nunavut as April 1, 1999 dawns.

For Inuit, however, a people long renowned for their adaptability,
the creation of Nunavut and the administrative government it
requires has been well conceived, and owes its roots to more
than two decades of vision and dedication.

The government of Nunavut is a public government,

The Kansas Entomological Society

The Central States Entomological Society

The Society goes by both of the above names.

It provides a forum for entomologists and welcomes as members all persons interested in insects or other terrestrial arthropods, their ecology, behavior, systematics, physiology, control, conservation, etc.

The Society was established in 1928, and produces a quarterly publication, the Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society that contains papers by local authors as well as by persons from many other parts of the world.

The Society holds annual meetings in Kansas or nearby states, at which students as well as established entomologists present results of their research or reviews of topics of interest. There are no concurrent sessions! Thus interactions among individuals and their diverse disciplines are fostered.

The 152nd Kansas Academy of Science and the 96th Kansas Entomological Society joint annual meeting has been canceled due to the risks of the

The Daily Beast

After weeks of touting an unproven anti-malarial drug as a potential coronavirus cure, Dr. Mehmet Oz did an abrupt about-face on Wednesday, noting that a recent study shows “we don’t know” if hydroxychloroquine works as a COVID-19 treatment.Appearing on Fox & Friends, Oz was asked by co-host Brian Kilmeade—who has also been heavily promoting the drug—to react to a Veterans Administration study that found no benefit to hydroxychloroquine and that there was actually a higher rate of death among coronavirus patients who received it as treatment.“The VA study looked at older and quite a bit sicker patients—all male patients—in their hospitals and they showed that the drug by itself didn’t help, it might harm that population,” the TV doctor replied. He pointed out that other studies he has previously hyped found the drug had some effectiveness as a treatment, but added that those studies found the benefits

Judge Won’t Suspend Ga. Handgun Carry Law During Virus Emergency

A judge declined on Tuesday to suspend a Georgia law that requires people to have a license to carry a handgun after a gun rights group raised concerns because licenses aren’t being issued during the coronavirus emergency.

The same day that Gov. Brian Kemp declared a public health state of emergency, the chief judge of the Georgia Supreme Court declared a judicial emergency and instructed courts statewide to “suspend all but essential court functions” to help stem the spread of the virus. Several days later, the Council of Probate Court Judges of Georgia issued a memo saying the issuance of weapons carry licenses would be temporarily suspended.

GeorgiaCarry.Org and Fulton County resident Sara Carter filed a federal lawsuit April 9 against Kemp and Fulton County Probate Judge Pinkie Toomer. The Fulton County Probate Court website says carry licenses aren’t being processed because area police departments had indefinitely suspended fingerprinting for

North Korea says denuclearization talks with Pompeo ‘regrettable’

North Korea on Saturday accused the U.S. of undermining the spirit of last month’s summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un after what it says were “regrettable” talks with a delegation led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

A statement by the North Korean Foreign Ministry, accusing the U.S. of trying to unilaterally pressure the country into abandoning its nuclear weapons, came shortly after Pompeo’s delegation left the country.

“We had expected that the U.S. side would offer constructive measures that would help build trust based on the spirit of the leaders’ summit … we were also thinking about providing reciprocal measures,” Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement, according to The Associated Press.

“However, the attitude and stance the United States showed in the first high-level meeting (between the countries) was no doubt regrettable,” the spokesman said.

It went on to accuse the U.S. of requesting “cancerous demands
