Bankhead, or another facilitator with equal training, passion and insight, be requested to offer a presentation at the October 2019 council meeting that would prepare hearts and minds more fully to appreciate the experience and context of the meeting in Montgomery, Alabama;

express concern that any additional travel and financial restrictions will have a negative and harmful impact on the church’s religious activities; and that it will be increasingly difficult for our clergy to obtain visas to come to the United States from Cuba and to go to Cuba from the United States; religious exchanges, travel and engagement, particularly when there is a shared faith tradition, help sustain faith communities and contribute to religious expression and religious liberty, and bridge building, fellowship and continuing to be in relationship will allow the transformation of the political dynamics between the U.S. and Cuba; assert that the policy changes are also likely to negatively impact U.S. relations with Canada, the European Union, Latin American and Caribbean nations, and limiting the frequency and amounts of remittances will increase economic hardship for many Cuban families and will further isolate the Cuban people; reiterate The Episcopal Church’s call for an end to the embargo; and reassert a commitment to strengthening relations between the Cuban and American peoples (MW006).Complete ENS coverage of the meeting is here.

From the St. John’s River Water Management DistrictThe St. Johns River Water Management District is conducting a small prescribed burn today at the Lake Apopka North Shore in Orange County. The purpose of the burn is to burn fuels away from sensitive restoration planting areas as the district prepares to perform a larger burn in a few weeks.Prescribed fire is the use of carefully planned fire purposefully set under stringent conditions to control the fire’s effects. Its benefits include restoring and maintaining natural communities, reducing chances of destructive wildfires, perpetuating fire-adapted plants and animals, cycling nutrients, controlling tree diseases and opening scenic vistas. Prescribed fires help prevent wildfires by burning off fuels that naturally build up over time, while also helping to control the growth of woody shrubs.Before conducting a burn, the district ensures that wind and other weather conditions are correct for controlling the fire and minimizing the impacts of smoke to residents and traffic.The Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive remains closed.

How many nesting birds and other animals will die? All so yet another prescribed burn that is bigger, will follow in the next few weeks. Animals have no where to go in this entire area around here. They are smoked out, burned out, hunted, and bulldoze their homes. Is it any wonder so many are in the neighborhoods hunting for food, be it birds, bears or others?

Previous articleMove-in day could come early to Greek VillageNext articleTCU rises in the Coaches Poll and falls in the AP Poll Garrett Podell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR printTCU quarterback Kenny Hill was named the Big 12 Co-Offensive Player of the Week while wide receiver KaVontae Turpin is the conference’s Special Teams Player of the Week.Hill, making his TCU debut, became the first player with 400 yards passing, two touchdown passes and three rushing scores in a game since 2013.Hill’s 439 yards passing and 484 yards of total offense both rank seventh for a single game in TCU history. His 33 completions, in 49 attempts, tied for sixth. He ran for 45 yards on seven carries with touchdown runs of 4, 6 and 8 yards.Junior wide receiver Desmon White said Hill was making good reads and throws, it was just up to the receivers to make the plays happen for him.“It’s up to us to make plays for him,” White said. “We know he’s going to give it everything he has and that’s all that matters.”Hill, a junior from Southlake, Texas, led a TCU offense that gained 662 yards.TCU head coach Gary Patterson said he was happy with Hill’s debut.“I think we did a good job of just moving the chains when we needed to and we went up-tempo early with a new quarterback and sometimes that’s a problem,” Patterson said. “But first drive we scored all positives.”Turpin had an 81-yard punt return for a touchdown in the second quarter against South Dakota State. It was the second of his career, following last year’s 49-yard score versus Kansas.“I knew Turp was going to score as soon as he hit that crease,” Hill said after the SDSU game.Turpin, a sophomore from Monroe, Louisiana, needs one more punt return touchdown to tie TCU’s career record, held by Linzy Cole (1968-69) and Blanard Spearman (1930-32).Turpin’s seven catches for 62 yards tied his career-high. He also amassed 177 all-purpose yards (82 punt returns, 62 receiving, 33 rushing). He averaged 17.7 yards each time he touched the ball.Kickoff against the Arkansas Razorbacks is set for 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10 at Amon G.

“Not seeing news from Libya any more?” – RWB’s new campaign

first_img Well-known Libyan journalist missing since his arrest RSF_en News Three years after the Gaddafi regime’s fall on 23 October 2011, Reporters Without Borders is launching an awareness campaign about the persecution of journalists and news media in Libya. Cases of targeted violence against journalists have soared since the end of the Libyan revolution, making it more and more difficult for the media to work in an increasingly chaotic environment. Receive email alerts to go further December 17, 2019 Find out more LibyaMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Libya Exactly three years after the Gaddafi regime’s fall on 23 October 2011, Libya is today amid mounting political and military anarchy, and the hopes raised by Col.’s overthrow are giving way to another dark episode in Libyan history. Journalists, both professional and non-professional, are among the leading victims of this instability. They are being hounded, physically attacked and even murdered.Covering the on-going turmoil, reporting human rights violations by the various armed groups or even just describing a particular faction’s military progress or political position exposes journalists to great danger. Carrying a camera or a press card now requires considerable courage.In response to this alarming situation, Reporters Without Borders is launching a campaign visual – designed by the JWT Tunis ad agency and available in Arabic, French and English – to highlight the terrible plight of journalists working in Libya.The visual shows the re-enactment of the scene of a journalist’s murder together with the words: “Not seeing news from Libya any more? He did try though.” Its aim is to make the general public aware of what is happening to journalists in Libya.Since the end of the Libyan revolution, Reporters Without Borders has registered seven murders, 37 abductions and 127 physical attacks or acts of harassment targeting journalists. Libya was ranked 137th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, six places lower than in 2013.Reporters Without Borders defends freedom of information, a freedom that is an essential condition for any transition to democracy. It is crucial for Libya’s future that all political, military and civilian actors respect freedom of information. Without freedom of information, there is no independent watchdog and without an independent watchdog, there is no democracy.

We had to make decisions about what to keep and what to leave out. It was hard and it took a lot longer than I thought it would.”This is the third year that The Music Center has partnered with the Pasadena Unified School District’s (PUSD) three stand-alone middle schools to boost the district’s middle school arts offerings. At Wilson, actor David Guerra from The Music Center and Wilson theater teacher Shannon Mumolo collaborated as middle school students learned theater skills, wrote their own contemporary versions of Greek myths and produced short films in a “movie trailer” format. These films were then shown at a screening for proud parents, staff and community at the Sierra Madre Playhouse.David Guerra. Photo courtesy MusicCenter.Org“For the students, working this way has really brought the academic content to life,” said Wilson Middle School Principal Sarah Rudchenko. “It’s in the sixth-grade social studies standards to study ancient civilizations. Learning through theater and film makes it exciting for students.”The partnership between PUSD and The Music Center has provided classroom experiences in theater, music, visual art and dance to approximately 450 middle school students. A professional teaching artist is paired with English and/or history teachers as they work together to create and teach a project that will build students’ abilities to communicate, collaborate and connect to academic subjects. Additionally, in-school performances from professional actors reach an even greater number of students at each school.At Eliot Arts Magnet, all students enjoyed a theater performance by Guerra and his group BOXTALES, through The Music Center on Tour program. Guerra also mentored drama teacher Janus Stechel and language resource teacher Julie Alvarez during academic literacy courses where students produced original plays based on themes related to bullying and graffiti art. The collaboration with The Music Center is one of several strong partnerships supporting the new visual and performing arts themed Eliot Arts Magnet.“Because the students knew they would be performing plays based on their work, there was a stronger commitment to write authentic plays,” commented Alvarez. “I firmly believe that my students bought into the project because of the arts component which made the experience exciting for all of us.”The public is invited to watch Eliot students perform staged readings of the work they produced through the The Music Center artist residency during their spring showcase Metamorphosis on Wednesday, April 16th from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. at Eliot Arts Magnet, 2184 North Lake Avenue, Altadena.To learn more about the new Eliot Arts Magnet visit www.eliot.pasadenausd.org.
