Pennsylvania Commission for Women Opens Nomination Period for 2020 Female Veterans Day Celebration

first_img Press Release,  Veterans,  Women’s History Month Continuing the Wolf Administration’s effort to support women in the commonwealth and recognize those women who have served their country through the military, the Pennsylvania Commission for Women is seeking statewide nominations for its fifth annual Female Veterans Day Ceremony as part of Women’s History Month in March 2020. The event will take place at the Governor’s Residence in Harrisburg and veterans selected will be honored by Governor Tom Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf.“Every March, Frances and I have the distinct honor of saying ‘thank you’ to a small representation of the vast population of brave women veterans in Pennsylvania,” Governor Wolf said. “There are currently more than 70,000 Pennsylvania women serving in the military and I know that every single one of them has made profound sacrifices – each deserves much more than this honor, but it is our small way of recognizing women who serve and letting them know how grateful we truly are.”“Over the last four years since the Commission for Women launched this initiative, we have honored over 80 Pennsylvania women who have served their country proudly,” Commission Chair Randi Teplitz said. “The Commission recognizes the unique challenges faced by women in the military, as women only comprise about 20 percent of the armed services. I encourage anyone who knows a deserving woman veteran to nominate her for this honor.”The Female Veterans Day nomination form should be filled out online. Nominees must be current Pennsylvania residents and have served at least four years in any branch of the U.S. military. The deadline for nominations is February 1, 2020. All final honorees will be notified via email by February 28, 2020.For additional information on the nomination process, please contact the Commission for Women at women@pa.gov.

Italian GP: Raikkonen Breaks Record to Take Pole

first_imgFerrari’s Kimi Raikkonen set the fastest lap in Formula 1 history as he stole pole position from the title contenders at the Italian Grand Prix. The 38-year-old Finn triumphed in a thrilling fight at Monza with team-mate Sebastian Vettel and Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton, taking pole with the last lap of the session.Hamilton was fastest after the first runs and improved on his second lap, but Vettel beat him before Raikkonen pipped both.Raikkonen’s lap of one minute 19.119 seconds meant he averaged 163.793mph. The previous record – 1:19.525 (162.950mph) – was set by Juan Pablo Montoya in a Williams in 2004. Vettel was not happy, saying “we speak after” as his engineer told him the result. The German declined to elaborate when asked to say what he meant.In one of the most exciting qualifying sessions for some time, Hamilton fought to overcome what appears to be a slight Ferrari pace advantage and appeared at one stage to have done it.On the first runs in final qualifying, Hamilton set a 1:19.390, beating Raikkonen by just 0.069secs, with Vettel third just 0.038secs behind the Finn.Hamilton improved to a 1:19.294 on his final run, but the Ferraris had positioned themselves behind him, Vettel in front of Raikkonen, and the slipstream the second Ferrari driver got may have proved decisive.Raikkonen, whose pole was his first since Monaco last year, was pleased to set the quickest time on Ferrari’s home track.He said: “I couldn’t think of being on pole in a better race. I am hoping tomorrow I can end up in the same position.”That remains to be seen, as Vettel is 17 points adrift in his close title fight with Hamilton.Vettel said: “Not entirely happy with my last run but Kimi was a bit too fast in the end. It is always like this in Monza, for him it was in the sweet spot. My lap was not very good but for now we have both cars on the front row.”Hamilton said: “Ferrari did a solid job. We gave it everything we could, it is very close between us but they have had the upper hand this weekend. We will give it everything we can tomorrow. “It was so intense and that’s how F1 should be.”Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas, who has been off the pace all weekend, ended up fourth, 0.362secs behind the Briton. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, Haas’ Romain Grosjean, Renault’s Carlos Sainz, Force India’s Esteban Ocon, Toro Rosso’s Pierre Gasly and Williams’ Lance Stroll completed the top 10.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Kimi Raikkonenlast_img read more
