From the recent Pennsylvania, State Poll surveys to a new addition in the penguin’s colony in Pennsylvania zoo to the requirement of new ID proof for entering the federal buildings and boarding flights in Pennsylvania state. Here are some of the most happening and relevant stories doing rounds in Pennsylvania.
1). Pennsylvania State Poll survey:- Hillary Clinton ahead of Donald Trump by a nine-point margin.
The new poll out from the critical battleground state of Pennsylvania suggests that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is dominating rival republican candidate Donald Trump.A Bloomberg media’s recent statewide polls in Pennsylvania found Clinton moving ahead of the republican candidate by a mere 9 points, with Trump losing favor amongst the large section of Pennsylvanians after a controversial tape resurfaced last week showing the real estate giant making lewd comments and sexual advances towards women without her consent.The much talked about controversial tape hasn’t gone down well with a large section of Pennsylvanians as the recent statewide polls showed voters backed Clinton at 51% and Trump at 42%.
2). Two newborn chicks to become the part of penguin’s colony in Pennsylvania Zoo.
The next time you happen to visit a zoo in Pennsylvania, expect a new member of the penguin’s colony to greet you. Well, we’re talking about three-week-old African penguin chicks that are the first ever born species of penguin over there.
As per reports by Lehigh Valley, the first of the two chicks hatched a month ago on Sept. 16 while the other came out three days later at Lehigh Valley Zoo in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania. Though the gender of both the newborns is yet to be known.
3). Pennsylvanians will need new ID’s other than driver’s licenses to enter federal buildings, flights.
Pennsylvanians will have to look at new ID’s other than driver’s license for entering into federal buildings or board planes for longer time period.
The new law will be enforced from January 2017, to be followed up by another law in 2018 that will restrict entry of current state license holders for boarding commercial flights.
This step is being taken in the right direction to make identification system more secure & foolproof to prevent any such terror attacks like 9/11 happening in the future and set REAL ID Act for the more secure identification process. It will be interesting to see how and when the law gets to see the daylight since a 2012 Pennsylvania law bars the state from participating in any such REAL ID Act.
4). Pennsylvania Professors gearing up for the strike from Wednesday this week.
Pennsylvania’s state university system and the schools’ professors’ union have given three days of time frame till Wednesday to settle their disputes or else will go on strike if their demands aren’t met till the set deadline. The union has further warned that the Pennsylvania State College & University faculties association will unfailingly go on strike from Wednesday 5a.m. in the morning without an acceptable contract system in place.
