Locker doors usually have some kind of ventilation to provide for the flow of air to aid in cleanliness. These vents usually take the form of a series of horizontal angled slats at the top and bottom of the door, although sometimes parallel rows of small square or rectangular holes are found instead, running up and down the door. Less often, the side or rear walls may also have similar ventilation.
Dimensions (Note that, in English-speaking countries, even those commonly using metric measurements now, locker dimensions are usually clean numbers of inches or feet, while the corresponding metric measurements are uneven, involving decimal places when precision is required, presumably resulting from continued use of locker designs based on feet and inches, unchanged for decades other than for cosmetic features.):
In schools without lockers, students are sometimes provided with two complete sets of textbooks, one set being kept at school for use in class, and the other being kept at home for referring to for homework, thus limiting the amount of heavy carrying that would otherwise be required without having lockers to store them in between classes. However, research has shown an increase in the incidence of back injuries in some students, which has been directly attributed to the lack of lockers for storing books in, thus forcing students to spend more time carrying heavy loads of books in backpacks.
Bicycle lockers are usually in outdoor locations near railway stations and the like where people may want to store bicycles securely. They are often banked together, with individual lockers shaped like an isosceles triangle for efficient and compact storage of a bicycle. This triangular shape permits the lockers to be grouped either in a radial pattern (with the sharpest points of the lockers together), or in a row in alternating orientations.

Some schools in the United States have been reported to have abolished the use of lockers. Security concerns are cited as the reason for this, with the concern being that lockers may be used to store contraband items such as weapons or drugs or pornographic material. There has been some controversy over in what circumstances school authorities or law-enforcement officials are permitted to search lockers, with or without informing the users, or with or without the users being present at the time of the search, and it has been considered a civil liberties issue, particularly in the U.S.
But now, the city has announced it will spend $160,000 on two pilot projects to provide 210 more storage lockers for those experiencing homelessness. Some service providers say the announcement is a move in the right direction for the city, which has found itself the subject of harsh criticism and even a federal class-action lawsuit over the enforcement of its camping ban.

The storage lockers were a “pilot,” the kind of small test that city government frequently uses to test a new or controversial idea. The city offered up the lockers for individuals to use for months-long stretches. At the time, city officials warned that “misuse of the lockers, vandalism, or other unanticipated results,” could force them to cancel the project.
Why is everyone so surprised? Trump opening stated what he was going to do if Congress didn't fund his border security plans. Congress has been funding to build barriers and walls along our southern border for decades. The ONLY reason they didn't fund them this year because Trump asked for the funding and the Democrats hate Trump because he is the President and Hillary isn't.
amending the bill by keeping the rules but waiving fees and first-time penalties to create better communication on what kids need to learn to create safe businesses.Great idea.Opponents of minority-owned-business or women-owned-business incentives often state that one argument against them is that wealthy white males can use disadvantaged minority or female owners as a front. What's to prevent a similar situation with children-owned businesses?And, why shouldn't business-minded kids learn the ropes of labor laws, environmental laws, or building safety codes.
There are a number of features or characteristics which may vary in lockers. Because purchasers will need to specify what they want in each of these when ordering, it is more common to order a particular configuration rather than buy "off the shelf" in a shop, although certain very common configurations can be found in shops fairly easily. These features include:
Denver has made strides in cleaning it's air but inversions still occur and trap all the crap we burn in the lower atmosphere. A big part of the brown cloud was particulate from sand spread on streets during the winter, that combined with car and truck pollution made for really bad air. Being a Trump support you likely cheer Trump's war on the EPA. Without action by the EPA Denver's air would be far dirtier than it is today. I hope the EPA works with Denver continue to work towards less pollution, especially ozone, which the Denver area is currently violating standards.
There is an honest way for supporters of a nationwide popular vote to eject the Electoral College, and that is to take away its accreditation by way of a constitutional amendment to repeal it. But that would take 2/3 of both houses of Congress and 3/4 of the states, and apparently that task gives opponents of the Electoral College the vapors.Much easier, they think, to perform an end-run on the US Constitution's amendment process through the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.Interstate compacts are for regional cooperation in governing the use of river water, for example, or in agreeing that if a nurse in one state passes that state's licensing requirements, other states will accept that nurse's license to practice.Interstate compacts are not for the purpose of subverting the US Constitution.I hate the Electoral College, it's antiquated and obsolete, in my opinion. But I don't support the NPVIC.If people think our politics are divisive now, just wait to see what happens if the NPVIC is adopted by 270 electoral votes' worth of states.So, call Governor Polis' office at 303-866-2471 and tell him to veto senate bill 19-042, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Be sure to mention the bill number! I do, however, like the idea of proportional electoral votes from each state. Winner-take-all is nowhere mentioned in any form in the US Constitution. Maine and Nebraska have the right idea.
Other advocates of lockerless schools also cite reasons such as reducing noise by eliminating the clang of dozens of locker doors, or creating a more appealing environment aesthetically. It has also been claimed that removing lockers provides good training for students by forcing them to be more efficient in managing their books, and taking the time to plan what books they will need, and carrying only those ones.

In the States everybody is so concerned about liability.... We tried to store at Hertz (where we dropped the rental); no storage facility, no luck. Try a hotel; I tried several, if you are not a guest then they are not allowed. I tried the Information Centre; no luck, they had some bad experiences.... in the past. But they could not realy help me any further. One advise: try the Greyhound Bus Center. And yes! there you can store your luggage. Even my somewhat bigger suitcase. The lockers are somewhat small but high and deep enough. First 3 hours is to be paid for; $ 3 and after that a dollar for an extra hour.
