The apportionment totals were calculated by a congressionally definedformula, in accordance with Title 2 of the U.S. Code, to divide among thestates the 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. Theapportionment population consists of the resident population of the 50states, plus the overseas military and federal civilian employees and theirdependents living with them who could be allocated to a state. Each memberof the House represents, on average, about 710,767 people. The populationsof the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico are excluded from theapportionment population, as they do not have voting seats in Congress.‘The decennial count has been the basis for our representative form ofgovernment since 1790,’ Groves said. ‘At that time, each member of theHouse represented about 34,000 residents. Since then, the House has morethan quadrupled in size, with each member now representing about 21 timesas many constituents.’President Obama will transmit the apportionment counts to the 112thCongress during the first week of its first regular session in January. Thereapportioned Congress will be the 113th, which convenes in January 2013.Beginning in February and wrapping up by March 31, 2011, the CensusBureau will release demographic data to the states on a rolling basis sostate governments can start the redistricting process.Article I, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution calls for a census of thenation’s population every 10 years to apportion the House seats among thestates.

NEW DELHI, India (Reuters) – Virat Kohli’s wide range of shots makes him one of the most versatile batsmen of his era and the India captain says it was a tweak to his stance that brought him a deluge of runs in recent years.Kohli made his India debut in 2008 as a flashy batsman but has since combined compact technique with elegant shot-making.In a Facebook live chat with Bangladesh one-day captain Tamim Iqbal, he said ditching his earlier stance opened up scoring options for him.“I changed because I wanted to score all over the ground. The static position was limiting my shot-making options,” said the 31-year-old, who goes back-and-across in his current stance.“It works for many, Sachin Tendulkar for instance. He had no issues because of his superior technique and hand-eye coordination.“I had to tweak it to suit my game. When someone first told me it could open up my options, I thought of giving it a try.“Luckily, it clicked and I immediately started executing shots which I never thought I could.”Kohli averages 50-plus in all three formats, has smashed 70 international centuries and boasts an exquisite cover drive.Among his contemporaries, Australian Steve Smith has an unorthodox but effective stance, standing open to the bowler and shuffling across the off-stump line, and Kohli said batsmen had to find out what worked for them.“I always feel you should be open to changes … You can’t stagnate, you have to keep learning,” he said.“If you keep playing in the same manner, opposition will figure out your game. You have to be ahead of the game.“So try it and drop it if it doesn’t work, but any batsman should be open to positive changes,” added Kohli.
