Aberystwyth

Aberystwyth is an ancient market town, administrative centre and holiday resort in Ceredigion, Wales. It is located near the confluence of the Afon Rheidol. Aberystwyth is in the historic county of Cardiganshire. Since the late 19th century, it has been a major Welsh educational centre, with the establishment of a university college there in 1872. At the 2001 census, the town's population was 15,935. During nine months of the year, there is an influx of students—to a total number of 10,400 as of September 2012. Including the suburbs of Llanbadarn Fawr, the population is 16,420, the built-up area having a population of 18,749; the town is situated near the confluence of the rivers Ystwyth and Rheidol, on the west coast of Wales. Despite the etymology of the town's name, only the River Rheidol passes through the town. Aberystwyth has a pier and a seafront which stretches from Constitution Hill, at the north end of the Promenade, to the mouth of the harbour at the south, taking in two separate beach stretches divided by the castle.

Different areas are: Aberystwyth town, Llanbadarn Fawr, Llanbadarn, Penparcau. Aberystwyth is an isolated town; the nearest city, Swansea is 55 miles away. The Welsh capital, Cardiff, is 76 miles away. London is 180 miles distant from Aberystwyth. Aberystwyth experiences an oceanic climate similar to all of the United Kingdom; this is pronounced due to its west coast location facing the Irish Sea. Air undergoes little land moderation and so temperatures reflect the sea temperature when winds are coming from the predominant onshore direction; the nearest Met Office weather station is Gogerddan, 3 miles to the northeast, at a similar elevation. The absolute maximum temperature is 34.6 °C, set during July 2006. This is the July record maximum for all of Wales, suggesting that the area's low lying situation, aided by a possible föhn effect when winds are offshore can act to achieve high temperatures on occasion; the warmest day will average 28.0 °C and 5.6 days will achieve a maximum of 25.1 °C or above.

The absolute minimum temperature is −13.5 °C, set in January 2010. 39.8 days will register an air frost. Rainfall averages 1,112 mm a year, with over 1mm recorded on 161 days. All averages refer to the 1971–2000 period. Aberystwyth is a university town and tourist destination, forms a cultural link between North Wales and South Wales. Constitution Hill, scaled by the Aberystwyth Cliff Railway, gives access to panoramic views and to other attractions at the summit, including a camera obscura. Scenic Mid Wales landscape within easy reach of the town includes the wilderness of the Cambrian Mountains, whose valleys contain forests and meadows which have changed little in centuries. A convenient way to access the interior is by the preserved narrow-gauge Vale of Rheidol Railway. Although the town is modern, there are a number of historic buildings, including the remains of the castle and the Old College of Aberystwyth University nearby; the Old College was built and opened in 1865 as a hotel, but after the owner's bankruptcy the shell of the building was sold to the university in 1867.

The new university campus overlooks Aberystwyth from Penglais Hill to the east of the town centre. The station, a terminus of the main railway, was built in 1924 in the typical style of the period in a mix of Gothic, Classical Revival, Victorian architecture; the town is the unofficial capital of Mid Wales, several institutions have regional or national offices there. Public bodies located in the town include the National Library of Wales, which incorporates the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales, one of six British regional film archives; the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales maintains and curates the National Monuments Record of Wales, providing the public with information about the built heritage of Wales. Aberystwyth is the home to the national offices of UCAC and Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg, the site of the Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research, the Welsh Books Council and the offices of the standard historical dictionary of Welsh, Geiriadur Prifysgol Cymru.

A purpose built Welsh Government office and an adjoining office of Ceredigion County Council are located in the town. There is evidence that during the Mesolithic Age the area of Tan-y-Bwlch at the foot of Pen Dinas was used as a flint knapping floor for hunter-gatherers making weapons from flint, deposited as the ice retreated; the remains of a Celtic fortress on Pen Dinas, a hill in Penparcau overlooking Aberystwyth, indicates that the site was inhabited before 700 BC. On a hill south of the present town, across the River Ystwyth, are the remains of a medieval ringfort believed to be the castle from which Princess Nest was abducted; this rare survival can only be accessed by arrangement. The recorded history of Aberystwyth may be said to date from the building of a fortress in 1109 by Gilbert Fitz Richard. Gilbert Fitz Richard was granted lands and the lordship of Cardigan by Henry I, including C

New Jersey Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act

The New Jersey Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act known as P. L. 2010, Chapter 122, is a policy created in 2011 by New Jersey legislature to combat bullying in public schools throughout the state. This act is an extension of the state's original anti-bullying law, N. J. S. A 18A:37-13, first enacted in 2002. Both the New Jersey state Assembly and the state Senate passed the law unanimously in November 2010 and Governor Christie signed the bill on January 5, 2011; the law began to take effect at the beginning of the 2011 school year. Along with both Democratic and Republican legislators, organizations such as Garden State Equality, the Anti-Defamation League of New Jersey, the New Jersey Coalition for Bullying Awareness and Prevention worked on creating this policy; the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights provides a thorough definition of bullying. The new bill's definition not only describes bullying as a harmful action towards another student, but as any act that infringes on a student's rights at school.

In addition to defining bullying more the new bill will require that every public school, including higher education institutions, report all cases of bullying or teasing to the state. Verbal reports must be given to principals on the day of an observed incident and a written report must be provided within two days. Families must be notified, as well as the superintendent of schools, an investigation must take place within ten days of the incident. Schools must have a plan that outlines how they will address bullying and all teachers and administrators must be trained to identify and respond to bullying. In addition to ensuring that schools are prepared to recognize and report bullying, the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights takes steps to ensure that schools are creating a positive environment for students; the law requires that every school have a school safety team. These individuals must work to provide a welcoming environment for all students. In addition, the first week in October has been designated as the "Week of Respect".

During this week, schools are asked to teach about intimidation and harassment in order to make students more aware of the causes and effects of bullying. In 2002, New Jersey created an anti-bullying law, one of the first of its kind. By the year 2003, New Jersey, along with 14 other states, had passed anti-bullying laws. A majority of states created these laws in response to a number of high school shootings that occurred throughout the 1990s, the most known being the Columbine High School massacre. There was much research after these shootings as to what caused them to occur. Research has found bullying to be one cause of such tragedies and schools saw the need to enact anti-bullying policies. Research has found that when students attack their classmates, it is most closely tied to the fact that they were mistreated and bullied by their peers; the New Jersey anti-bullying law of 2002 was one of the most comprehensive policies that not only defined bullying but guided educators in handling incidents in their classrooms.

In addition to New Jersey and Georgia enacted stringent anti-bullying laws in the early 2000s. While most of these laws enacted in the beginning of the 21st century provided little direction for schools to deal with bullying, the New Jersey law mandated the reporting of incidents of harassment or bullying. Although New Jersey's anti-bullying law was comprehensive in the year 2002, a number of events proved that it was not as strong as it needed to be to protect students; the first event that began to expose the law's weaknesses was a court case in the year 2007 against the Toms River Regional Schools Board of Education. A student in a Toms River school was being bullied because of his "perceived sexual orientation" and the harassment became so severe that he was forced to transfer to a different school; the case was brought to the New Jersey Supreme Court who ruled, "that a school district can be sued for damages, under the Law Against Discrimination, for not responding reasonably to bias-based student-on-student bullying and harassment that creates a hostile educational environment."

This ruling brought the issue of bullying to the State's attention and lead to the creation of the New Jersey Commission on Bullying in Schools. In 2009, the Commission issued a report, "There Isn't a Moment to Lose", which outlined necessary legal and policy reforms to improve New Jersey's response to bullying. According to the Education Law Center, this report "heavily influenced" the creation of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights. In addition to the legal and political findings between 2007 and 2009, which exposed the need for a change in policy, there was a new wave of bullying occurring on the Internet, not being addressed in the 2002 law. Cyber-bullying, defined as the use of the Internet and technology to deliberately harm others, has become an issue in the 21st century. A majority of teens use the Internet on a regular basis, in chat rooms, on websites, or instant messaging; the Internet provides both an anonymous and infinite audience for cyber bullies to access, which changes the nature of bullying and schools' necessary responses to such incidents.

Cyber bullying has led to a number of incidents of teenage suicide, the most publicly known being the suicide of a Rutgers University student, Tyler Clementi. This event reignited the public's attention towards bullying and the policies that need to be implemented to protect students. New Jersey legislators reacted by unanimously supporting the New Jersey Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act; the updated New Jersey anti-bullying policy was given an A++ by the Bully Police, a watchdog organization that reports on and grades states' anti-bully
