Giving birth while in the Senate makes Duckworth 'want to be there longer'

Giving birth while in the Senate makes Duckworth 'want to be there longer'

Motivation
Tammy Duckworth said that becoming the first sitting U.S. senator to give birth will only make her "want to be there longer" so she can see to it that women are never forced to choose between their careers and their families. "I want to be there to really be able to make the change, so that my daughters will grow up not knowing any boundaries, so that my daughters will grow up not having to make that choice between their profession and their fertility," Duckworth told ABC station WLS-TV Chicago. Nine U.S. house members have given birth while in office. Duckworth downplayed the circumstances surrounding the arrival of her second child -- another girl, due in April -- by saying "if we had more women serving, I think this would not be so pioneering." The 49-year-old Illinois Democrat s...

Can you delegate motivation? If not, where does it come from? The motivation on show these past few weeks has been exceptional. On the flip side, if you don’t want to do something – such as team selection – one excuse is as good as another.As for the teams, what drives Leinster? Is it the famous European nine- dart finish of a clean sweep in the pool followed by three knock out stage victories? Leinster can do it. What motivates Munster? Is it that final winner takes all pool game in the middle of their challenging times? Is it Connacht “backdooring” Europe for next season’s Champion’s Cup that keeps them motivated? And what about poor, poor Ulster – what motivates them?Regardless of the obvious team cultures that have evolved over the years, it is individuals and the motivation that dr

Men's Basketball: Prohm delivering messages of motivation to Cyclones – and himself

Motivation
By Travis Hines Sports Editor thines@amestrib.com They’re words of wisdom, parables of perspective and reasons for reflection. Whether culled from books, social media, a chance television program or his own experience, Iowa State coach Steve Prohm relies on these messages of motivation and items of inspirations.“Keep Standing.” “Live in your vision, not your circumstances.” “Prepping for a tsunami.”These are just some of the sayings and principles Prohm regularly uses to focus and drive his team.“I think it’s important in sharing with these guys what success looks like and the avenues to get to success, what it takes,” Prohm told the Ames Tribune on Thursday. “Just in the standpoint of these are the standards for championship programs.”Prohm learned from his mentor and long-time

No. 3 Senators enter season with plenty of motivation

Motivation
Walters State baseball coach Dave Shelton has been a part of six JUCO World Series teams, including a national championship in 2006, since joining the Senators coaching staff in 2003, so he has seen his fair share of talented players and teams in 15 years on the Morristown campus.For the now fifth-year head coach to say the 2018 team may be the most talented, and deepest, team he has coached is quite a statement. Oh, and they have plenty of motivation too.After sitting out the postseason in 2017 following a 44-12 campaign due to a one-year probation period, the Senators are back in title chasing mode entering this season, and their aim isn’t just at the regional level. They begin the season ranked third in the country by Perfect Game, ranked behind No. 1 San Jacinto-North and No. 2 Chip

House panel endorses bill to ban abortion when motivation is Down syndrome

Motivation
SALT LAKE CITY — Parents of Down syndrome children urged a legislative committee with sometimes emotional testimony Thursday to pass a bill that would make it illegal for doctors to perform an abortion if they know that the woman seeking the procedure is doing so because the child would be born with Down syndrome."Sometimes we forget what effect these individuals can have in our lives," Aaron Simpson, the father of two Down syndrome girls, including one who was adopted, said they have made him a better person.Doctors, nurses and others passionately argued against HB205, saying it intrudes on the doctor-patient relationships as well as woman's right to make a choice."I believe this Legislature has no right in my living room or my doctors office," said Catherine Balka, a nurse.

Clearance sought from O'Sullivan to question McCabe's motivation

Motivation
The former Garda commissioner Nóirín O’Sullivan never instructed her lawyers to question the integrity of the whistleblower Sgt Maurice McCabe at the O’Higgins Commission hearings, the Charleton tribunal has been told.Colm Smyth SC, who led Ms O’Sullivan’s legal team at the commission, said he sought clearance from the then commissioner to question Sgt McCabe’s credibility and motivation. He told Diarmuid McGuinness SC, for the Disclosures Tribunal, which sits under Mr Justice Peter Charleton, that he did not make the case that Sgt McCabe was an “embittered” man who made complaints to get back at the Garda. “I wanted to test the evidence,” he said.If it was shown that serious allegations made by the sergeant were not supported by evidence, then the question would arise of why the allega
