President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and Members of Coronavirus Task Force Remarks at Press Briefing, March 20th

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – THE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP:  Thank you very much.  I had a very good telephone conversation — extremely good — with Senator Schumer a little while ago.  We’re working on various elements of the deal, and the Democrats are very much wanting something to happen, and the Republicans, likewise, are very much wanting something to happen.  And I think it will.

I spoke with — at length with Mitch McConnell.  And there’s tremendous spirit to get something done, so we’ll see what happens.  But my conversation was very good with Senator Schumer.

President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Members of the Coronavirus Task Force Press Briefing Remarks

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – THE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Thank you very much. I think this is going to be a very important conference and I’ll get to that toward the middle, but I have a few things to report. And I want to thank you all for being here.

And I have to say, I think with social distancing that the media has been much nicer. I don’t know what it is — all these empty — these in-between chairs. We probably shouldn’t have anybody sitting behind you either. You know, you should probably go back. But I love it. It’s so much nicer. But I shouldn’t say that because you’ll get me now.

Instant Peay Play: Former APSU Gov Morgan Rackel ends summer with silver medal at Pan Am Games

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – To say former Austin Peay State University (APSU) softball standout Morgan Rackel has had a heck of a run over the past few months would be an understatement, as she wrapped up her summer by winning a silver medal last week as part of Team Canada at the 2019 Pan America Games in Lima, Peru.

The Calgary, Alberta native was a part of the silver medal winning team that posted an overall record of 5-2 at the games, with their only two losses coming to the top-ranked team in the world, Team USA, by a 6-1 final in the preliminary round and 3-1 in the gold medal game, while defeating Puerto Pico (3-1), Venezuela (8-0), Peru (7-0), Mexico (4-0) and Team USA (3-1).

Nashville Zoo announces Tamarin Twins Born

 

Nashville ZooNashville, TN – On Saturday, April 20th, 2019, two cotton-top tamarins were born at the Nashville Zoo. This is the second birth of cotton-top tamarins twins since the opening of Expedition Peru: Trek of the Andean Bear in March 2018. Since cotton-top tamarins are critically endangered in the wild, every birth of captive cotton-tops helps secure the future of this decreasing population.

“Keepers have been monitoring Caqueta for pregnancy over the last several months,” said Sabrina Barnes, Nashville Zoo primate area supervisor. “Typically primates give birth overnight, but this time and the previous time, Caqueta gave birth in the late afternoon, so keepers were able to monitor the birth and watch the rest of the three tamarins interact with the mother and infants.”

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Archeology may not be a career Austin Peay State University history graduate student Katelynn DiStefano is pursuing academically, but that did not stop the graduate assistant in the University’s Department of History and Philosophy from spending part of her summer searching for mummies along the northern coast of Peru.

DiStefano joined University of Alabama Ph.D. student Jenna Hurtubise, along with a small group of students and archeologists, in traveling to the South American country, where they continued Hurtubise’s work in excavating and analyzing the history of the Casma, an underexplored ancient Peruvian culture.
