NEWS INTRO VIDEO

------------------

US Speaker Nancy Pelosi has accused the Attorney General William Barr of lying to Congress. Her comments came a day after Barr's testimony to a Senate panel about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russia's alleged meddling in 2016. Barr faced sharp questioning about his decision to clear President Donald Trump of obstruction of justice. The top US law official refused to testify to Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee on Thursday. The stand-off raises the prospect that Barr - America's top legal official - could be held in contempt of Congress.

In other news,

A donor kidney has been delivered to surgeons at a US hospital via drone, in the first flight of its kind. Many see huge potential for unmanned aircraft systems delivering medical products, with some drones already doing so in Africa. The US flight required a specially-designed drone which was able to maintain and monitor the organ. It is hoped that it can pave the way for longer flights and address safety issue with current transport methods. The recipient, a 44-year-old from Baltimore, had waited eight years for the transplant.

 

On this day in history, there is nothing interesting that happened but it is national truffle day!

The Cloister FFA is proud to announce the results of spring regional CDEs. Our chapter was very well represented on Tuesday, competing against students from other chapters in Schuylkill, Lebanon, Berks, Chester, and Philadelphia counties in a variety of agricultural topics. Many have been studying since the fall in preparation for this event. Some of the things they had to do were identify different wild bird, plant, and mammal tracks, demonstrate how to restrain a small ruminant, muzzle a dog, calculate the appropriate amount of medication to give to a specific animal, and identify different scents and food safety violations. Without further ado, here are their results:

Vet Science

15th in the county, freshman Hannah Zimmerman

14th in the county, freshman Brynne Lehman  

12th in the county, junior Mae Riehl

Food Science

3rd in the county, junior Maxi Bodnari
