Maybe they plan on leaving them up until the next go round? Weeks and weeks since the elections, and some don’t seem to be motivated to remove them from the right of ways. November 27, 2018 at 8:28 pm What Is #GivingTuesdayCreated by the team at the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y—a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back—#GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. A team of influencers and founding partners joined forces, collaborating across sectors, offering expertise and working tirelessly, to launch #GivingTuesday and have continued to shape, grow and strengthen the movement. November 27, 2018 at 8:53 pm Give credit where credit is due…..Thanks, President T….you have succeeded in raising the steel and aluminum tariffs to the point where GM can’t survive, and 14,000 jobs will be lost, and cars that I really like, will not be made anymore. Plus, soda drinks, and beer, and other beverages in cans, are going up in price, due to your tariffs. Thanks a lot, President T, you have succeeded in killing off the GM car plants.

It is in same shopping plaza as the Chick-Fillet just on up a little past the Chick-Fillet, on the east end there where they also sell natural foods, that has been there a long time. We just happened to drive by, and there were signs stuck in the ground that they sell hemp products, CBD, and they had marijuana leaf signs, and also signs that stated, no marijuana card needed. I guess it surprised me, since my pharmacy is right there in the same plaza, and they posted signs that stated, no CBD on their door, as people were coming in there trying to buy it. That is the first I noticed these signs, as I don’t go on down that way too often, so I don’t know how long they have been selling the weed products.

Dangerous precedent seen in decision to put Al-Manar on list of terror organisations

first_imgNews “Some of the anti-Semitic statements broadcast on Al-Manar are inexcusable but putting this TV station in the same category as terrorist groups worries us and does not strike us as the best solution,” the press freedom organisation said. “We urged the US authorities to take care not to lump the fight against anti-Semitism with the fight against terrorism.” to go further Organisation Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says United StatesAmericas Commenting on a US decision to put Al-Manar, the TV station of the Lebanese Shiite organisation Hezbollah, on the list of terrorist organisations, Reporters Without Borders today urged the US authorities to “take care not to lump the fight against anti-Semitism with the fight against terrorism.””Some of the anti-Semitic statements broadcast on Al-Manar are inexcusable but putting this TV station in the same category as terrorist groups worries us and does not strike us as the best solution,” the press freedom organisation said.Noting that anyone working directly or indirectly with the station will be banned from visiting the United States and those residing in the United States are now threatened with expulsion, Reporters Without Borders asked if the Al-Manar bureau in Washington would be closed and its staff forced to leave the country.Reporters Without Borders pointed out that the decision also meant that, in the event of war, Al-Manar’s journalists were in danger of being considered belligerents and their bureaux viewed as military targets.”We fear that this measure could be just the first of many others, and that all news media that have been accused of helping terrorist organisations in their coverage could end up on this list, in which case there will definitely be abuses,” Reporters Without Borders added.The decision to put Al-Manar on the list of terrorist organisations (Terrorist Exclusion List) was announced by the US Department of State on 17 December. Spokesman Richard Boucher said the decision was taken because of “its incitement of terrorist activity.”The US authorities said anyone with links with Al-Manar would be refused a visa to enter the United States or would subjected to expulsion procedures if they were already on US territory. Al-Manar was removed from the satellite which beamed it into the United States on Friday, the satellite’s owner Intelsat told Reuters agency.On 13 December, the French authorities ordered the satellite operator Eutelsat to stop relaying Al-Manar within 48 hours, saying its programming had “a militant perspective with anti-Semitic connotations.” They also cited the need to preserve public order as a reason for the decision.

Parking enforcement officials will also begin enforcing daytime street sweeping ordinances.“As a reminder, enforcement of the overnight parking restrictions resumes starting at 2 a.m. on Thursday, 10/1,” said Pasadena Public Information Officer Lisa Derderian. “Additionally, enforcement of daytime street sweeping restrictions resumes during posted times on Thursday, 10/1.”Since March 17, the city has received more than 300 requests for parking enforcement and the Public Works Department has received more than 100 requests for street sweeping through the Citizen Service Center (CSC) during that same time period, the report states.“The parking division has received additional requests for enforcement for both parking enforcement and street sweeping via phone and email that are not recorded and reflected in the CSC numbers,” according to a city staff report included in a City Council agenda earlier this month.As part of the vote to restart enforcement, the council also approved the development of other parking programs as listed below.Sale of emergency COVID-19 overnight parking permits that would allow vehicles not otherwise qualified per section 10.44.20 of the Pasadena Municipal Code to park on the street. Permits will be valid for 90-day increments and can be renewed until the end of the city’s safer at home order. The fee for this permit will be tied to General Fee Schedule Fee 804 – Thirty Day Parking Permit, and will sell for $73.38 per 90-day period. Per Section 10.42.060(C) of the Pasadena Municipal Code, a two permit limit per address would remain in place.Creation of a low-income fee waiver program for overnight parking permits. Individuals may qualify by meeting criteria set forth in subdivision (b) of Section 68632 of the California Government Code, which includes individuals receiving public benefits under certain programs. Individuals determined to be eligible for the low-income fee waiver program will receive a 50 percent discount on Annual Overnight and Temporary 90-Day Overnight permits.Resumption of noncritical vehicle impounds and booting, including for vehicles with five or more past due parking citations, and for vehicles with expired registrations, effective in November.The City Council suspended enforcement of the overnight parking law, as well as time limits in residential neighborhoods, street sweeping restrictions, and payment at all curbside parking spaces at the start of the pandemic.Metered parking spaces were temporarily converted to 20-minute parking to facilitate delivery and pickup of food from restaurants. In addition, the “booting” of vehicle wheels, impounds, and noncritical vehicle impounds were also suspended. 19 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News Your email address will not be published.

Vicky Phelan rejects claim that dying with dignity bill threatens palliative…

first_imgLimerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Linkedin Vicky PhelanPhoto: Oisin McHugh True MediaLIMERICK CervicalCheck campaigner Vicky Phelan, has said a proposed Bill seeking to allow terminally ill people, like herself, have the choice of ending their own lives, is not a threat to palliative care.Ms Phelan, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer, arising out of the CervicalCheck scandal, commented after 17 eminent palliative consultant physicians and professors said they were “gravely concerned” at the proposed Bill, which will be voted on in the Dail tomorrow, Wednesday.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Ms Phelan said the proposed Bill would “ease” a “huge fear” that she and others have about dying in pain, and in a place they do not wish to end their days, such as “a hospital or a hospice”.The “Dying with Dignity” Bill was introduced in the Dail by Solidarity-People for Profit TD Gino Kenny.Calling on TDs to support the Bill, Ms Phelan revealed she suffers “nightmares” about dying and having no control over how, where, and when her final moment will be.“When anybody gets to a (terminal) stage, like I am, you’re terrified. I have nightmares about this, it’s something that plays on your mind constantly, you know you are going to die,” she said.“There’s a big difference in somebody dying of a heart attack, and my situation. If you die of a heart attack, you don’t know it’s coming, you’re dead, that’s it, you don’t have time to think about it. Whereas I have had two and half years to think about this, and I have got young children, so it’s a very real fear for people when they’re in the situation with an illness where they know they’re going to die, probably in a lot of pain.”“I am (terrified), yes, why wouldn’t I be? I am only human, and unfortunately I have seen quite a number of people die, particularly over the last two and half years, and I’ve visited quiet a number of hospitals and hospices.”A group of consultant physicians and clinical professors in palliative medicine voiced strong opposition to the proposed Bill in a letter sent to The Irish Times Monday.The letter’s signatories, led by Feargal Twomey, a Limerick consultant physician in palliative medicine and chair of the Irish Palliative Medicine Consultant’s Association Palliative Medicine (IPMCA), stated they were “gravely concerned by any proposal to legislate for assisted suicide and euthanasia in Ireland”.Ms Phelan, who is supporting the Bill, said: “I thought it was telling that they used ‘assisted suicide’ rather than ‘assisted dying’, because ‘assisted dying’ is what this Bill is proposing. Assisted suicide or euthanasia is far more broad, which is not what this Bill is proposing whatsoever”.The physicians argued they have “a collective experience over many decades of providing specialist care to thousands of individuals, and their families” and “closely observed the experiences of people who have lived and are living with serious illness”.However, Ms Phelan said: “How can they have grave concerns if they haven’t got feedback or tested the waters or consulted with a group of patents? This is all about their views on dying, not about patients views or what patients fears are.”The physicians claimed the proposed Bill posed “many threats, to healthcare in Ireland”, including the “true meaning of the doctor-patient relationship” and “the future of what we know compassionate and supportive specialist palliative care”.Ms Phelan said palliative care professionals do “fantastic” work and she argued the proposed Bill should “not” be seen as a “Us versus Them”.“It’s about giving people like me the choice. I have made all of my choices in my life about everything I’ve done, between getting married, having babies, and then obviously the more difficult thing about taking a court case, so why should this be any different – why should I not have that little bit of control over how I die, the same way I’ll have had control over how I’ve lived my life.”Ms Phelan and Deputy Kenny both said “patients voices” must be heard.They both disagreed that “dying with dignity is already present within healthcare in Ireland, no change to our current laws is required” as stated by the physicians.The IPMCA group expressed “worry about the impact” the proposed Bill would have on vulnerable people as well as “those who may be made to feel a burden to their families and come under pressure to end their lives prematurely”.Mr Kenny said the proposed Bill included safeguards to prevent abuse.“I don’t think they speak for every person that works in palliative care, I’m sure there is a variety of opinions in relation to the issue,” Mr Kenny said.“We are going to have to tackle this issue rather than sticking our heads in the sand,” he added.A vote on whether the proposed Bill will progress to committee stage or be subject to further scrutiny by an Oireachtas committee is due to take place Wednesday.

Assault on biracial woman in Wisconsin being investigated as hate crime

first_imgkatifcam/iStockBy WILLIAM MANSELL, ABC News(MADISON, Wis.) — An assault on an 18-year-old biracial woman in Wisconsin is being investigated as a hate crime after she was set on fire in her car, according to the Madison Police Department.The victim, Althea Bernstein, told authorities she was stopped at a red light Wednesday with her driver’s side window down when she heard someone yell a racial slur. It was at that point that four white men allegedly sprayed a liquid on her face and neck and then threw a flaming lighter at her, which caused the liquid to ignite, according to the incident report. Scared, Bernstein began to drive and patted out the flames. She drove home, where her mother told her to go to the hospital.At the hospital, she was treated for burns and will need to make follow-up visits for additional medical care, authorities said. Hospital staff, according to police, believe the liquid was lighter fluid.Bernstein told ABC News Friday she “never thought something like this would happen.”Bernstein said she went through “textbook shock” and hasn’t been able to sleep properly. She said she wishes she could remember more of what happened, but hopes Madison police will figure it out.“These men hurt me and I hope they choose to improve themselves,” she said.Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway issued a statement, saying, “This is a horrifying and absolutely unacceptable crime that I will not tolerate in Madison.”“While we are still learning more about the details, current information suggests this may have been a premeditated crime targeted toward people of color, which makes the incident even more disturbing,” Rhodes-Conway said Thursday.Police are treating this as a hate crime and are reviewing surveillance images to see if the alleged assault was captured on camera. Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at (608) 266-6014 or by computer at P3Tips.com.“This hate crime is one of multiple recent downtown incidents where people’s safety and lives have been at risk,” Rhodes-Conway said in a statement. “It is completely unacceptable and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Everybody in Madison deserves to feel safe, and it is up to every single one of us to make that true.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

On-line recruiter searches for solution to bogus skillsOn 3 Oct 2000 in Personnel Today The director of on-line recruitment site JobShark has admitted it has not found a solution to the problem of proving the authenticity of its users. Max Butti said, “It is up to the jobhunter using the site to ensure that they enter the skills they actually have. “It is certainly not in their interest to put in bogus skills because I would put this in my black book for future reference.”But he claimed the system that JobShark uses solves the problem of confidentiality by making each form anonymous and alerting jobseekers by e-mail when a match is found.Butti warned that the system would mean the “death of the CV” because it was programmed to recognise skills rather than certain key words and so was better at selecting appropriate candidates.Potential employees enter their profile on to the database and employers fill out the skills set necessary for the job they have on offer. Suitable candidates are then matched to jobs.www.JobShark.com Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
