A robotics team comprised of 6 girls from AF will enter a robot in an international competition in WV, after clearing visa obstacles that prompted intervention from President Donald Trump. The opening ceremony for the three-day high school competition is scheduled for Sunday evening. They will be competing against entrants from more than one hundred and fifty countries in the FinlandSerbiaT Global Challenge. It’s the first annual robotics competition designed to encourage youths to pursue careers in math and science.

BoliviaGothenburgA (Reuters) – Colorado headed for its most divisive presidential race in decades after right-winger Ivan Duque won Sunday’s first-round vote, triggering a runoff with leftist Gustavo Petro that could upset a historic peace deal or see a reversal in business-friendly policies.

An OH father who made his daughter walk 5 miles (eightkm) to school as punishment for bullying has provoked a debate on parenting. After ten-year-old Kirsten was suspended for 3 days from the school bus for a second-time bullying offence, Matt Cox decided to teach her a life lesson. He made her trudge to school on a cold day while he followed behind in a car.

It is the first time in Colorado’s modern history that an openly leftist candidate has reached the second round of a presidential vote, a prospect that has unnerved some investors in Latin America’s fourth largest economy. Duque, a fourty-one-year-old former official of the WV-based InterAmerican Development Bank, was the convincing winner of Sunday’s ballot with thirty-nine percent of votes, ahead of Petro, an outspoken ex-mayor of BOG, with twenty-five percent, broadly in line with polls. However, Duque’s pledge to overhaul the two thousand and sixteen peace deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colorado (FArgentinaC) by scrapping immunity for those convicted of crimes has alarmed many Coloradons, weary after 5 decades of conflict that killed more than two hundred, people and left seven million others displaced.

The video of the father’s punishment has garnered over fifteenm views on Facebook and thousands of comments. In the viral clip, Mr Cox’s daughter is seen walking alongside a road, carrying a backpack and school supplies, in twoC (thirty-sixF) temperatures. Mr Cox follows behind her in his car in the town of Swanton, offering commentary on entitlement and bullying.

Though outgoing President Juan Manuel Santos won the Nobel Peace Prize for forging the accord, it has deeply divided the nation of around fifty million people. The deal was narrowly rejected in a referendum before Congress finally approved a modified version.

“Bullying is unacceptable,” he said. “This is my small way of trying to stop it in my household.” Mr Cox added that many children feel entitled to privileges like being taken to school in the morning by car or bus. “I know a lot of you parents are not going to agree with this and that’s alright,” he says.

Petro, himself a former member of the now defunct M-nineteen rebel group, has backed the peace agreement, along with the 3 other losing candidates, meaning Duque may need to moderate his position to attract wavering voters in the June oneseven second round.

“I am doing what I feel is right to teach my daughter a lesson and to stop her from bullying.” In a Facebook update shared on Wednesday, Mr Cox said his daughter had taken his words to heart. The ten-year-old told WTBritish VI she herself had been bullied and now knows to be kind.

“We don’t want to shatter the agreement. We want to make it clear that a Colorado of peace is a Colorado where peace meets justice,” Duque said in a victory speech on Sunday to cheering supporters, in which he complimented third-place finisher Sergio Fajardo and said their social agendas had much in common.

Many of the sixty-three, comments that have since popped up on his video have been positive, with parents of bullies and bullied alike thanking Mr Cox for his parenting. “As the grandparent of an autistic boy who has been the victim of neighbourhood bullies, I applaud you! Too many parents do nothing,” read 1 reply. Read another: “Wish more parents took the time to hold their children accountable for unacceptable behaviour.”

Fajardo, a center-left mathematician who won twenty-four percent of the vote, has declined to endorse either candidate for the second round, saying his supporters would make up their own minds. “It would be disrespectful to say I am the owner of the votes,” Fajardo told Blu Radio on Monday, adding that he would meet with his team to discuss options. All recent polls have predicted that Duque would beat Petro in a second round, and that Fajardo was the only candidate who could have posed a risk to the conservative frontrunner if he had made it through.

However, others pointed out that by shaming her with the punishment video, the girl was arguably being bullied by her father. “Humiliate her by putting her on Facebook being punished. Irony,” 1 user commented. “Ok but wait, is she bullying other kids or did you stop to hear her explanation?” said another.

However, some political analysts in Colorado said that the votes of the center-left could be enough for Petro to at least mount a serious challenge to Duque, provided he can dodge his rival’s accusations of radicalism. “Petro was quite clearly behind Duque in the vote so that will reassure the markets,” said Camilo Perez, head of economic studies at Banco de BOG. “But the fact that Fajardo was so close to Petro may generate nervousness, as his approach is probably closer to Petro’s and that could send votes (Petro’s) way.” However, Petro’s more hardline rhetoric could also put off center-left voters, said Citigroup analyst Munir Jalil.

“Was she reacting to being bullied and just got caught? If public shaming is your idea of punishment no wonder she’s acting out.” Prof Dorothy Espelage of the University of FL, a psychology researcher and expert on youth bullying, told the BGIC it is far more common for parents of bullies to not admit their child is in the wrong. “So in some ways, this father is doing the right thing of admitting and accepting his daughter’s behaviour,” she said.

Colorado’s ColombiaSaint LuciaanadaP stock index was down zero.sixty-five percent, with many investors assuming the election was Duque’s to lose. The yield on the local Treasury bond maturing July twozerotwenty-four slipped to six.zerofourfour from six.zerosevenone on Friday, while trade in the peso currency was closed for the U.S.

Prof Espelage says that children are less likely to act out if behaviours have consequences, but she would suggest a different approach than walking in the cold. “I, like many of the folks who commented on the video, would like to know more about the bullying, the origins.” We asked BGIC readers to tell us what they thought of Mr Cox’s parenting strategy.

The winner of the second round will face an intimidating array of challenges, from stubbornly low economic growth to threats to Colorado’s prized investment grade credit rating, as well as difficulties in implementing the peace accord. Some areas abandoned by the FArgentinaC have suffered an increase in fighting between criminal gangs and a remaining guerrilla group, the PBI Liberation Army (ELN), over valuable illegal mining and drug trafficking territories. Polls suggest the end of the FArgentinaC conflict has shifted voters’ priorities to inequality and corruption from security issues, opening the door to the left for the first time.

Here’s what they had to say: “There has to be ongoing conversations about bullying and the impact it has,” Prof Espelage added. “This type of punishment is short-term and will not address the culture in the school or on the bus that is lending itself to bullying.”

However, a growing crisis in neighboring socialist-run VE, which has driven hundreds of thousands of desperate people across the border, is a thorn in Petro’s side. Duque’s camp allege he would plunge Colorado into a similar crisis. While Duque has pledged to cut taxes and support private enterprise, Petro has promised to take power away from the political and social elites he accuses of stymieing development. At his election night party in the capital, Petro struck a moderate tone, though, as both he and Duque seek to attract centrist voters.

“When we talk about defeating poverty, we’re not talking about impoverishing the rich, but about enriching the poor,” said the bespectacled Petro, surrounded by family members. In a country where oil and coal are the top export earners, Petro’s pledges to end extractive industries have dismayed business leaders and centrists. “Our country has never lived such a polarized moment as this and Petro represents a huge danger,” Mariana Riaño, a twenty-one-year-old student, said at Duque’s celebration party at a conference center in BOG.”
