Daniel J. Pacheco, 63

ALAMOSA– Good individuals pass away; the godly often pass away prior to their time. No one appears to care or question why. Nobody appears to understand that God is safeguarding them from the evil to come (Isaiah 57:1 NLT). Danny– or Dan as he was known to his good friends and household– was suddenly called from service in this world to service into the Kingdom May 6, 2019. Dan was born in Monte Vista, Jan. 6, 1956 with good works prepared ahead of time for him to do. He was a 1975 graduate of Mountain Valley High School in Saguache. After consistently serving the Town of Saguache for 24 years, he retired in 2018. Prior to retirement, April 23, 2017, he entered his true calling, functioning as Pastor of College Heights Baptist Church in Alamosa– a function he really accepted and loved perfectly above and beyond procedure. He felt most fulfilled shepherding the church and preaching Christ crucified, ministering to the forgotten or overlooked ones, and being grateful for the anointing power of the Holy Spirit. He is endured by his spouse of 24 years, Heidi; his kids Michael Pacheco and Michael’s fiancé Audrey McDowell, Crestone; Bruce (Danielle) Piatt, Midland, Texas; Monique (Bryon) Hunter, Thornton; Brooke (Warren) Gallegos, Monte Vista; siblings Helen Beltran, Santa Rosa, N.M.; Ruth (Ernie) Quintana, Salida; Virginia Love, Excelsior Springs, Mo.; Elizabeth (Steven) Everist, Temple, Texas; Janice (Billy) Culp, Camden, Mo.; sister-in-law Donna Pacheco, Granbury, Texas; mother-in-law Mari Lou Wyatt, Universal, Ind.; five grand sons, 2 granddaughters and an abundance of nieces and nephews.
He is continued in death by his parents, Ben and Beatrice Pacheco; nephew Daniel Montoya; sis Vicki Briggs; bro Robert “Bobby” Pacheco; sibling Al Pacheco; sibling Tony Medina; brother-in-law Richard Love; and grand son Aaden Gallegos. Pastor Dan was always reminding us “It isn’t over till God states it’s over,” and “Be strong to the surface, keep the faith.” (2Timothy 4:7) Well done, good and devoted servant. Pastor and author Rick Warren wrote, “I do not need to understand why whatever happens considering that I understand God is good, He enjoys me, and life in the world is not the entire story.” Those who like Dan will continue to applaud God in this dark hour, not understanding or understanding why. We will trust Him and His goodness understanding that this isn’t where the story ends. An event of Dan’s life will be held June 1 at College Heights Baptist Church in Alamosa at 11 a.m
. In lieu of flowers, donations are welcome to the College Height Baptist Church in Alamosa.

PFL 12 results: Kayla Harrison out-grapples Larissa Pacheco for first decision win

Kayla Harrison (red gloves) tries to shake off Larissa Pacheco in the lightweight main event of PFL 12 in Uniondale, New York, on Thursday

Kayla Harrison went the distance for the very first time in her career, however the outcomes were the exact same. The two-time Olympic gold medal winning judoka improved to 4-0 as a pro fighter and earned herself 3 points in the light-weight standings with a consentaneous decision win over short-notice replacement Larissa Pacheco(11-3)in the main event of PFL 12, the league’s season premiere, on Thursday at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York. Harrison remained in leading control for nearly the

entire fight, setting the tone early with a takedown off of the cage and relentlessly working to improve position and keep Pacheco pinned to the mat. To Pacheco’s credit, she landed some great punches on the feet and even threatened with a rear-naked choke in round two. The less experienced Harrison remained calm, however, and repeatedly got the better of Pacheco in the grappling exchanges to provide herself openings for ground-and-pound and guard passes. The first judges’ call of Harrison’s career was a beneficial one as she won by means of

The fight was all Magomedkerimov as he caught a kick early and took Howard down immediately.

There was no escape from Magomedkerimov’s smothering leading control and the ruling champ peppered Howard with ground-and-pound prior to turning up the heat in the last seconds and snatching Howard’s neck.

5 strategies to get your scholastic composing “unstuck”– Raul Pacheco-Vega, PhD

When < a href ="http://www.raulpacheco.org/2013/02/improving-your-academic-writing-my-top-10-tips/"> I blog about scholastic writing, I do so from the viewpoint of someone who does it every day. Someone who acknowledges his own time limitations (because I’m pretty busy), and his challenges (since < a href="http://www.raulpacheco.org/2014/02/academia-and-public-engagement-in-english-and-spanish-not-an-easy-task/" > I write scholastic prose both in English and Spanish, each with their own difficulties). Although < a href= "http://www.raulpacheco.org/2013/08/scheduling-my-academic-life-to-the-very-minute-my-weekly-template/"> I have an incredibly efficient schedule, often life occurs and my schedule gets rather derailed. This doesn’t take place often, but it does occur. Sometimes, I also get stuck. I desire to write, however my brain doesn’t desire to press words out through my fingers.

The more I work with myself and believe about how I approach my research study, the more I can see how I can improve my writing. In specific, lately, I have actually discovered five techniques to get myself “unstuck”. If I feel that the words aren’t flowing, I utilize one of these methods (or all integrated).

1. Write an outline.

This is pretty standard guidance, however one that has assisted me analyze my research study. When I feel that I am stuck, I compose an outline, either of the paper I am currently writing, or of a new paper. By liberating my busy mind from the concern of not having anything to compose and outlining a new concept or conceptual map, I permit my thinking to flow easily.

2. Set a few sentences or a paragraph as your target.

When I set myself a hard target (e.g. 2 consecutive hours of composing), I typically see it as an obstacle. However, if my objective is to just compose a paragraph in a paper, I often find myself that the writing flows a growing number of. There are extremely few things that are more fulfilling than seeing the blank areas being substituted by words, sentences and paragraphs. That sensation of finishing a description or detailing a concept is simply fantastic.

3. Answer questions related to your research/paper.

This is associated to the very first technique, and I found it helps me rather a lot. I am presently composing on water privatization in Mexico, and I found that the most convenient method to blog about it was to answer concerns. When somebody is reading my paper, what type of questions do they have, and how can I help them address them? I find that when I respond to a question, that action normally forms one or two paragraphs, and most of the time, a complete area.

4. Read a paper and summarize it (in composing)

This is another technique I’ve been using recently. Rather of getting disappointed about why my writing isn’t streaming, I merely grab a short article that I currently have read, and I type my notes. I generally type those notes (which are frequently handwritten) to then transform them into a “memorandum” or a “memo”. I took the idea of writing memos from when I took a course in qualitative methods during my PhD. These “memos” are merely messages to yourself, crafted in such a way that you can kindly lift text from them to add them to your paper.

5. Choose a short walk, equipped with a pen and paper pad.

I have a little travel handbook (Moleskine is your buddy) similar to the one that I constantly continue the field, when carrying out interviews, doing participant observation while on fieldwork. So when I feel stuck, I take my “ideas” notebook and go for a brief walk. I usually listen to symphonic music while I write, so I get my iPod and play some classical music while on my walk. This typically puts me in a thinking state of mind and for that reason I am able to faster write down concepts that I then come back to my office and type.

As I have actually informed other people, I blog about what works for ME. Ideally these strategies will work for YOU too.

New academic paper defends the Pacheco Law, which has been vilified for 25 years for the crime of protecting taxpayers | COFAR blog

The Pacheco Law in Massachusetts is a book example of how a good piece of public law can be defeated and misrepresented for political and ideological factors.

Now, a new paper released on a website called In the Public Interest has actually tried to set the record straight about the 25-year-old law, which has unjustly been used as a political punching bag for nearly that length of time.

Complete disclosure: I are among the three authors of the paper, which is entitled, ” The Pacheco Law: 25 Years of Taxpayer Security.”The Pacheco Law, which is likewise called The Taxpayer Security Act, requires a detailed expense analysis prior to privatizing federal government services. As a one-time newspaper reporter who covered the legal arguments over the law, and now as a research and interactions director for COFAR, I have actually long been interested in the far-reaching efforts in this state to privatize human services, in particular. In the previous 2 decades, throughout which I worked for the state Inspector General’s Office and after that ended up being an adjunct instructor in public law at Framingham State and other universities, I’ve ended up being a fan of the Pacheco Law.

Lakeville State Hospital– among numerous state-run human services facilities that were closed in Massachusetts. A loophole in the Pacheco Law allowed the closings without invoking the law’s expense analysis requirement.The lead author of

the paper is Elliott Sclar, an economic expert who is teacher emeritus of city preparation at Columbia University. Also authoring the paper was Michael Snidal, a doctoral student in metropolitan preparation at the university. Dr. Sclar and I were amongst a group of

individuals who were asked in 2015 by state Senator Marc Pacheco of Taunton to compose the paper as part of a larger task to analyze both the history and political future of the 1993 Taxpayer Security Act, of which Pacheco, naturally, was the chief author and sponsor. In the Public Interest explains itself

as “a thorough research study and policy center on privatization and accountable contracting.”As the Center notes, our paper provides proof that the Pacheco Law has actually saved the taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars in the previous quarter century. So far, Senator Pacheco’s job has actually gotten some preliminary funding from a public staff member union in New york city, the Amalgamated Transit Union. I need to keep in mind that the moneying the job has received fades in comparison with the huge quantities of loan that have actually been spent to have organizations such as the Pioneer Institute vilify the Pacheco Law. As I have actually< a href=" https://cofarblog.wordpress.com/2018/08/20/has-the-globe-just-shown-a-newfound-if-inadvertent-support-for-the-pacheco-law/"target="_ blank"rel="noopener"> kept in mind on this blogsite in the past, the challengers of the Pacheco Law, that include Massachusetts Guv Charlie Baker, The Boston Globe’s editorial page, the Pioneer Institute, and lots of others in neo-liberal political circles, claim the law has almost entirely stifled ingenious efforts to privatize civil services in Massachusetts. As we pointed out in the paper, what the Pacheco Law has truly done has been to guarantee in numerous cases that a thorough cost-benefit analysis was undertaken before state-run services in Massachusetts could be privatized. It’s not ingenious if taxpayers wind up paying more for a service, and it’s not ingenious if the quality of the service is gotten worse rather than improved.Privatization, naturally, has been the focus of a long-running debate between those who declare that government is naturally inefficient and wasteful, and those who declare that the sole purpose of privatization is to improve corporate interests that wish to facilitate cash from federal government contracts. In Massachusetts, arguments over the Pacheco Law have actually generally been cast in those equally special terms. Overlooked of the conversation, however, has actually been a 3rd view, which is that privatization can work if it goes through sufficient competitors, analysis, and oversight, and that policy procedures such as the Pacheco Law provide the required analysis. That’s the view we took in our paper. Privatization supporters have gained from a loophole in the Pacheco Law The basic requirement of the Pacheco Law is that before services can be contracted out, the state auditor should affirm that the relocation will in fact save cash, and that the resulting privatized

services will be equal or much better than the services supplied by state workers. Opponents of the Pacheco Law

never ever mention the truth that 75 percent of the privatization applications made to the state auditor considering that the law’s beginning have actually been approved. In addition, a major push for privatization in the field of human services has occurred in Massachusetts without triggering the Pacheco Law at all. As we noted in the paper, succeeding administrations from Governor William Weld onwards have actually exploited what is basically a loophole in the Pacheco Law with respect to human services. The loophole originates from language in the law implying that services can be privatized and based on the law’s cost analysis requirement just if the services are presently performed by state workers. That language has actually allowed succeeding administrations to assert that they are not outsourcing if they merely close a state-run property center for the developmentally disabled, for example, and consequently send either the former residents or others awaiting services to a privatized domestic facility. The Leader Institute incorrectly contended the Pacheco Law lost money for the MBTA As our paper mentions, the Pacheco Law was invoked when the MBTA attempted to contract out the operation and maintenance of Boston area bus lines in 1997. The state auditor concluded, after a review required by the law, that the company had actually failed to show that privatization would conserve cash, and in fact, that contracting out the bus

service would actually cost the state$ 73 million more than keeping the function in-house.

We have actually determined that without the Pacheco Law, the MBTA would have gone ahead and contracted out the bus service, resulting in compounded losses exceeding$200 million over the ensuing years. Those computations were based upon my own finding in 2015 that the expense of contracted commuter rail services at the MBTA really rose quicker considering that 2000 than did internal bus service costs. Our paper’s combined findings stand in sharp contrast to a claim made in< a href ="https://pioneerinstitute.org/better_government/pacheco-law-has-cost-mbta-at-least-450-million-since-1997/"target="_ blank"rel="noopener"> a prominent report by the Pioneer Institute in 2015 that the failure to privatize the bus service ultimately cost the MBTA $450 million. The Leader research study had wrongly compared quotes proposed by the 2 potential bus service suppliers with real costs incurred

by the MBTA in 1997, and used the exact same cost-escalation element to the bids and in-house costs between 2003 and 2013. The Pacheco Law requires agencies like the MBTA to compare”apples to apples”bids under which both numbers represent a forecast, i.e. a contracted forecast against a forecast of internal services provided in a”expense efficient manner.”Ultimately, as we mentioned in our paper, both our expense calculations and the Pioneer’s report were based upon back-of-the-envelope estimations that, even if done properly, fell far except the extensive expense analysis needed by the Pacheco Law. Recent history of privatization in Massachusetts Our paper attempts to put the Pacheco Law in the context of the history of privatization in Massachusetts from the 1980s onward. The law was a response to a worldwide privatization trend start in the 1980s. And among the most ardent supporters of the pattern was William Weld, who became guv of Massachusetts in 1991″with an unabashed conviction that less direct government service arrangement guaranteed better results.” While outsourcing in itself wasn’t brand-new when Weld took workplace, the distinction now

was that “neoliberal contracting or privatizing had become a matter of ideology, a belief that

the personal sector is constantly competent and the public sector inherently deficient.” In Massachusetts and somewhere else, a major effort was begun to privatize governmental services and functions with little supporting analysis and few checks or balances. Amongst those working under Weld to carry out the rush to privatize was Charlie Baker, at the time secretary of human services and later on secretary of administration and financing. Baker came highly advised to the administration by the Pioneer Institute. Privatization proposals “flew in from near and far “– from local think tanks like the Leader Institute and from “antigovernment tough hitters”like the Heritage Structure and the Cato Institute, the latter declaring Weld the best guv in America. Weld’s subsequent closings of the state-run Paul A. Dever State School in Taunton and neighboring Lakeville Hospital”quickly pushed households based on persistent care far from places they had actually called

house for decades.”The devices at Lakeville was provided away to the personal Parkwood Health center in New Bedford at no cost. As a Globe Spotlight series in 1993 revealed, the Weld administration and its privatization plans”were deeply clashed by unique interest loan, lobbyist inspired lunches, and enormous corporate campaign contributions.”In this context, Pacheco, whose Senate district consisted of Dever and Lakeville, first proposed his legislation while he belonged to the House in 1992. It didn’t pass then, but did pass the list below year after Pacheco had actually

been elected to the Senate. As noted above, nevertheless, Weld and subsequent guvs, Republican and Democratic, continued to shut centers for the developmentally disabled and to broaden the private system of business, provider-run group houses without invoking the Pacheco Law. Costs misrepresented Both the Romney and Patrick administrations declared that privatized care for the developmentally disabled was cheaper per resident than state-run care by comparing the typical expense per local in privatized residences to a calculated cost of care in state-run developmental centers such as the now-closed Fernald Developmental

. This contrast was disingenuous; Fernald served a population with a lot more profound level of intellectual impairment and more extreme medical requirements than the population in the privatized neighborhood system. Their cost contrast approach also overemphasized the state costs per resident. The administrations simply divided the total Fernald budget plan by its population of citizens to figure out the cost of care, ignoring the part of Fernald’s budget plan that went to programs that benefited community-based homeowners. In

bypassing the Pacheco Law, these administrations never seriously considered propositions to run developmental centers more effectively, something the law clearly requires. Had the cost and quality analyses needed by the Pacheco Law been used in the contracting of services for the developmentally handicapped in Massachusetts considering that the 1990s, a better understanding of the expenses associated with that procedure and higher quality care would have resulted. The Pacheco Law would have: 1)guaranteed that all potential costs were totally examined prior to closing state-operated centers, and 2)ensured the quality of care run by business service providers be equivalent or better that state-run centers. Privatization can work if it is subject to competitors, analysis and oversight Our paper concludes with the observation that federal governments might have the ability to maintain quality of service and lower their bottom line if there exists a competitive private market that has a recognized quality and rate. In those circumstances, it can often be revealed that costs can be minimized by privatizing services. Unproven generalizations about the expense effectiveness of privatization must be subject to analysis. In amount, as we noted, the Pacheco Law’s 25-year anniversary, which occurred last month, “supplies a ripe occasion to start a national discussion about how we restore vibrancy to a public sector that has been severely harmed by ideological attacks on government.”

Man Fatally Struck By Vehicle In Pacheco —claycord CLAYCORD.com

You assume it was 9 Engine that responded but I’m willing to bet they were already on another run. If so the call was transferred to whatever Company got moved up or the closet Company available such as 5 Engine on Boyd Rd or one out of Concord.
Even if 9 Engine were at their Station House, the 9-1-1 call cames into the Sheriff’s Office or possibly even Pleasant Hill PD if it was a cell phone. The agency receiving the call has to determine what is happening and who has jurisdiction which takes time. Either way, it got transferred to the CHP.
The CHP Dispatch enters the event into CAD and dispatches officers. If not on their own, then the CHP officer requests ConFire. CHP calls ConFire who enters the event into CAD and make the “Ring Down” to the closest Company. That Company has to get into their turnout and drive to the call.
I know 12 minutes seems like a long time but when you consider everything that has to happen before a call for service gets put out, it really was a good response time.

City board selects Abel Pacheco Jr. to representative NE Seattle– and help lead city zoning conversations|Crosscut

He will represent District 4, which snakes along the eastern part of Lake Union, to north of the ship canal and ends south of Lake City, encapsulating the University of Washington and its surrounding areas.

After winning the seat, an emotional Pacheco remembered guaranteeing his mom he ‘d make her proud. “Simply like I told her, I intend to make all of you happy,” he told the council.

Pacheco, 31, will have seven months to make his mark on the council as chair of the Planning, Land Usage & & Zoning Committee, during which time he will lead the council’s discussion about what follows its latest landmark upzones. Specifically, his committee will grapple with just how much density to enable around the Ave in the University District and next steps in the council’s dragged out playing with the city’s backyard cottage rules.

Pacheco stated he “tentatively” supports upzones around the Ave, but wanted to meet organisations to “alleviate” concerns. He likewise stated he supports alleviating restrictions on yard cottages.

Maybe his biggest obligation will be to study and most likely help amend Mayor Jenny Durkan’s proposed 2020 budget this fall. For the council, budget plan consideration is an opportunity to bring house money for districts and pet projects, in addition to lay out the body’s broad top priorities.

As someone who does not own a cars and truck, Pacheco also said he would focus on methods to improve transport transit connections to the UW light rail station.

At 31, Pacheco ends up being the council’s youngest member. After finishing UW in 2012 with a master’s in public administration, he worked as a communications and programs expert with the Seattle Police Structure, an entity separate from the authorities department that raises cash to use resources to Seattle law enforcement officer.

Most just recently, he worked as the director of strategic engagement with the University of Washington’s MESA program, lobbying the Washington state Legislature for moneying to promote mathematics, engineering and science achievement for underserved populations.

Pacheco has also dipped his toe into land-use concerns, serving on a Wallingford focus group for the city’s housing and livability agenda.

In promoting for himself, Pacheco likewise stressed his story: a individual of color who hardly graduated high school and has gotten rid of difficulty. “While my resume highlights my community involvement and expert experiences that have prepared me to serve, it is my story that has fueled my heart’s desire to serve,” he stated in his application.

This is not the very first time Pacheco has actually looked for a seat on the Seattle City Council. He ran in 2015, but failed to advance past the main. He likewise looked for to fill a vacancy left by Tim Citizen, who became acting mayor in 2017, however the seat was approved to Kirsten Harris-Talley.
