Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply On an overcast and muggy evening 175 marchers in support of the Black Lives Matter movement  walked from  the Alonzo Williams Park through the streets of South Apopka to The Apopka Police Department. They chanted, “black lives matter,” “hands up, don’t shoot,” and “no justice, no peace.”They marched, they prayed, they called for unity, and an end to the violence. There were no violent incidents, and no threats to law enforcement.Representatives from the Apopka Police Department and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office attended the event, blocked off roads along the route, and led the marchers to APD headquarters.“We support the freedoms provided by our constitution and everyone’s opportunity to exercise their first amendment rights,” said APD Captain Randall Fernandez. “This march was peaceful and embodied the unity found within our community. It highlighted the support of the members of  the Apopka Police Department and of the community and the community of the officers. This proud and strong relationship is key to what makes Apopka a great place to live and work.”Melvin Bolder, one of the group organizers, was pleased with the turnout both in attendance and in the varieties of people attending.“I see a lot of diversity, a lot of cultures and a lot of religions and at the end of the day that was our goal.”Earlier in the week, Bishop Kelvin Cobaris of The Impact Church in Orlando was critical of the Black Lives Matter group at a rally in support of law enforcement at the Apopka City Hall. Cobaris, who is running for Florida House District 45 (which includes Apopka south of 441 and 436), said that “If the Black Lives Matter narrative brings us to divisiveness and to hatred, and violence, then I condemn it. I stand against it.”But at the march, he explained the distinction between the narrative and the violence he condemns.“Just to help you understand the Black Lives Matter narrative better, because there is so much confusion about it all over the nation… And there are some radicals that are taking the wrong approach and being vigilantes and taking matters into their own hands. But the reality is the narrative of the black lives matter started out of the Trayvon Martin shooting and evolved into a protest of police shootings and violence against blacks…so we’re saying black lives matter too. It doesn’t mean other lives don’t matter. But the focus was about the excessive force and brutality that was going on with black males and law enforcement. So I don’t want you to misconstrue why we’re here today. We’re not here to divide. We’re not here to protest for division in Apopka. We’re here to unite.”Pastor Richard King, the Vice President of the South Apopka Ministerial Alliance, challenged the community to let their voices be heard at the upcoming elections as well as at the march.“All of us are created in the image of God, and that means that every life matters. We were made in his image. We condemn violence against anyone. But not only does every life matter, but every vote matters. There are elections coming up that are vital to this community. So do your research and vote. We can do more with a pen and in a ballot box than we can ever do on the street. We are better than that.”Pastor Darrel Morgan of the Word of Life Church in Apopka quoted from the Gospels in calling for an end to the darkness.“Jesus asked us to be the light of the world. Light gives guidance when there is none. Light is mercy. It’s time for Apopka to turn the lights on, and let the goodness of God shine through.”Pastor Hezekiah Bradford, the President of The South Apopka Ministerial Alliance and The Apopka Christian Ministerial Alliance, wants to see accountability rather than cover-ups.“This march is about peace. It’s about bringing love into our community. Yes we have major problems but we can fix them. But if the police do something that is wrong, it should not be covered up. We need to make sure they are held accountable when that sort of thing takes place. That’s what Black Lives Matters is saying. If you are wrong, own up to it. All of us can make mistakes, but in the process of making that mistake, let’s do something about it.Black Lives Matter plan to march goes in Kissimmee next Sunday (July 31st), and in Ocoee the following Sunday (August 7th). 1 COMMENT UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your comment!last_img read more

Robbie Fruean’s slingshot tackle against North Harbour

first_imgMonday Aug 16, 2010 Robbie Fruean’s slingshot tackle against North Harbour Young Canterbury centre Robbie Fruean scored a hat trick of tries against North Harbour on the weekend as his side romped to a 44-22 win in the ITM Cup in Christchurch. Fruean not only scored some nice tries, but he made his physical presence felt.As everyone knows by now, there is an anxious wait for the grand entrance of league convert Sonny Bill Williams. Williams had a hamstring niggle so he is yet to make his debut in the tournament.When he comes back, in all likelihood this coming weekend, he will be either joining up with, or replacing, Fruean. It could be Stephen Brett though who may have to make way for what could be the most physically devastating centre pairing prospect the game has seen in some time.If Fruean continues to show this form though, and lives up to his promise, he may well overshadow the the SBW show this season. Health permitting that is.Fruean was diagnosed with rheumatic fever two years ago, and a week ago was sidelined after there were concerns that he had an irregular heart beat, or Arrhythmia. At that stage he had a new heart valve attached, enabling him to continue breathing, live a normal life, and incredibly, make a return to rugby.Sources closer to the team will know more, but at this stage things seem to be steady and when strong, Fruean is a bright young prospect that with or without the Sonny Bill Williams factor, could well be an All Black within a few years.This tackle was rather comical and if nothing else, showed the power of the guy. It brings back memories of the Gordon Tallis slingshot from a few years back, which you can see in the related posts along with a few others. :: Related Posts :: Gordon Tallis’ famous slingshot tackle on Brett Hodgson Midweek Madness – The good old drag tackle Gavin Quinnell vs Peter Richards in 2006 Time: 0:48ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The challenge of the project was to complete the project of a three-story building in a short period of time and with a limited budget. With the first two partially built floors, we had to design the third floor, finishes and facade.Save this picture!© Arturo Canseco RamirezGiven the 4 different functions of the building (shop, apartment, spa, and yoga room) we had to opt for a common aesthetic language that could serve the four programs without each of the spaces losing its identity. For this purpose we chose to invest in the floor and in the facade as highlighting and unifying elements of the building. The facade is composed of a metallic structure that holds dozens of andirons standing outside the building.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe great frame of the project, the “forest” curtain, captures the attention of passersby while protecting the interiors. Within the facade, two metal rails emerge breaking the andirons curtain and allowing contact with the outside and other stories.Save this picture!© Arturo Canseco RamirezBehind the andirons, the building, in a raw gray finish, opens large windows into the street on the first two floors and culminates on the third floor where a metal structure stands creating the yoga room. Here, the space surrounded by metal windows is protected by metal andirons, and opens to the north and south landscape.Save this picture!© Arturo Canseco RamirezThe structure ends in three inclined roofs at an industrial zigzag extending the top floor and conveying the scale and depth to the interior and exterior of the building. The interior finishes maintained the simplicity of a black floor and walls with lime finish creating an elegant and discreet contrast consistent with the store, the apartment and the SPA.Save this picture!© Arturo Canseco RamirezThe peculiarity of the floor ended up being the cut from the original Interceramic tile into two pieces thus achieving greater dynamism and a better scale that we believe is more appropriate for the spaces. The building, now known as Morillo Space, was concluded with the design and construction of all the furniture for the various areas of the building.Project gallerySee allShow lessCristián Undurraga Photographs His Pavilion for Chile at Milan ExpoArchitecture NewsNorman Foster’s Advice for the Young: “Find Something You Believe In”Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Reforma, Oaxaca, Oax., MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.

Will There Be Enough Credit To Support Ag Growth?

first_imgBut the way farmers go about getting credit is changing. In many cases, farmers are seeing capital investments from outside of the family farm, but Lane says this does not make farming operations any less of a family farm, “You may lose a little of the Norman Rockwell view of the family farm, but today it is a business and needs to be treated like a business.” He said there is a lot of capital that is required to run a farm, rent the land, and buy the inputs, so you have approach it as a business; but, in most cases, it is still a family running the farm and owning the farm.  He said 90% of FCS customers are family-run farms even if they do have outside investors.  Lane noted that there are a growing number of investors who want to invest in a farming operation but do not have the skills to run a farm and that there are a growing number of operations that have outside investors that are not involved in farming the land. Will There Be Enough Credit To Support Ag Growth?But with the increasing prices of land, equipment and input costs, will there be enough credit going forward to continue to keep agriculture growing? Lane says yes, “In the future, particularly, the larger operations are going to have to get creative in accessing capital, and they are going to have to do a much better job of financial analysis and record keeping in order to attract that capital.” SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleOil Rally Falters on Government DataNext articleSeed Consultants 3/14/2013 Market Closing with Gary Wilhemy Gary Truitt SHARE Will There Be Enough Credit To Support Ag Growth? KeithKaneAgriculture needs good soil, good climate, and good people in order to thrive and survive. But, increasingly, it also needs a good source of credit to fund farming operations. Keith Lane, with Farm Credit Services of Mid-America, says one of the reasons the farm economy has been doing better than most of the rest of the economy is the good source of credit it has, “The growth we have seen in the agriculture sector is due in large part to the good access we have had to credit.”  He told HAT many players have helped bring this about, “Certainly the Farm Credit System has played a major role, but many local and regional banks have also participated in making credit and capital available to farmers.” He added, since 2008, new investors have had to be found to purchase the bonds needed to provide a good source of credit for agriculture. He said, absent that source of capital, the agriculture landscape would look much different today.

Gunmen destroy radio station’s equipment in night-time attack

first_img RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan Help by sharing this information AfghanistanAsia – Pacific News Reporters Without Borders condemns a night-time attack by eight gunmen on Radio Paiman in the northeastern city of Baghlan on 31 January and calls on the local police to carry out an exhaustive investigation with the aim of identifying those responsible. The assailants beat and gagged the guard and then destroyed all the equipment. No journalist was injured.“Attacks on journalists have increased since the start of the year, which makes their work particularly difficult in this region,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Armed Islamist groups are the main predators of free expression in Afghanistan but we have been told that local police officers have also been involved in cases of violence against the media.”Radio Paiman director Shir Mohammad Jahesh said he had moved the radio station closer to the police station after receiving Taliban telephone threats. Nonetheless, the police took too long to get to the radio station on the night of the attack to be able to catch the assailants.No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, which has been condemned by Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid as a violation of freedom of expression.Under its mandate to help independent media, Reporters Without Borders will provide financial assistance to Radio Paiman’s staff so that they can resume broadcasting as soon as possible.

Palestinian news agency allowed to reopen Gaza City bureau

first_img May 28, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Gaza Strip prosecutor-general Ismail Jaber told journalists on 25 July that Ma’an News and Al-Arabiya TV were being closed down for the sake of public order. He accused them of “fabricating news and disseminating false rumours and baseless reports that threaten civil peace and undermine the Palestinian people’s resistance.” News News Reporters Without Borders welcomes the Hamas government’s decision to let the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reopen its Gaza City bureau. The government closed it in July after it quoted Israeli sources as saying Hamas was providing refuge to Muslim Brotherhood officials who had fled Egypt.“This decision is important for freedom of information in the Gaza Strip even if it just constitutes a return to normal,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is positive, but it only rescinds a closure order that was arbitrary and unacceptable.”Reporters Without Borders regrets that no decision has so far been taken on the reopening of the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV’s Gaza City bureau, which was closed at the same time.“Palestinian journalists must be able to cover sensitive subjects without being threatened or pressured by the authorities, political parties or armed groups,” Reporters Without Borders added.The Ma’an News Agency bureau’s reopening was announced on 16 November after a meeting between the Gaza Strip’s prime minister, Ismael Haniyeh, and the representatives of various Palestinian factions, which did not, however, include Fatah.Ma’an News Agency general director Raed Othman welcomed the decision and said the bureau would resume operating as soon as its staff were allowed back into their offices. When Gaza Strip prosecutor-general Ismail Jaber closed the Ma’an News Agency and Al-Arabiya TV bureaux on 25 July, he accused them of “fabricating news and disseminating false rumours and baseless reports that threaten civil peace and undermine the Palestinian people’s resistance.” Reporters Without Borders calls for the immediate reopening of the Ma’an News and Al-Arabiya TV bureaux in Gaza City, which the Hamas government closed on 25 July after they reported that Hamas was sheltering Muslim Brotherhood officials who had fled Egypt.“Closing news bureaux for covering matters of public interest, even when they are sensitive, constitutes a gross violation of freedom of information, which is already endangered in the Gaza Strip by the Hamas government’s ban on any cooperation between Palestinian and Israeli media,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Palestinian media personnel must be allowed to express themselves freely, without being subjected to pressure from government officials or political parties,” the media freedom organization added.

The bench headed by Justice U. U. Lalit was dealing with an instance where 3 death row convicts were involved in an incident on 15.03.2021 where in a search conducted of the concerned cell/enclosure, the three inmates including the petitioner were found to be in intoxicated condition. Upon being confronted, force was used and the officials had to use force to contain them. The father of the petitioner received information that the petitioner was badly beaten inside the prison where he is presently lodged. In the Mulakat arranged at the instance of the father, the petitioner had to be brought in, supported by two persons.In the premises, the bench had required Shri Satish Kumar, Addl. District Judge, Tis Hazari Courts, Delhi to visit the concerned cell/enclosure in Tihar Jail, Delhi and to make an appropriate report. “The Judge may interview the petitioner and such other persons as he deems appropriate. He is also at liberty to watch CCTV footage of the area in question, if available”, it was said in the order.Noting that no CCTV footage is stated to be available, the bench iterated that in keeping with the directions issued by various courts from time to time and particularly in the light of the directions issued in the latest judgment of the Apex Court in Paramvir Singh Saini v. Baljit Singh (2020), the Jail Authorities are obliged to install CCTV cameras at various places in the jail.”According to Mr. Raj Kumar, Superintendent of Jail, Tihar Jail, who was connected through video conferencing, CCTV camera has been installed at the medical dispensary. However, according to him, the life of CCTV footage is only four days and as of now, no footage is available”, recorded the bench.In order to have all the relevant facts on record, the bench directed the Jail Superintendent to file an affidavit by 05.04.2021 disclosing all the steps undertaken by him in connection with the incident that occurred on 14.03.2021. It shall also disclose under what circumstances, materials, such as, tobacco pouches or any other contraband/such things find their way inside the jail premises and what kind of preventive and other measures are being taken by the jail authorities.”The affidavit shall also disclose the make of CCTV camera which have been installed which according to Mr. Raj Kumar does not have life greater than four days for CCTV footage; so also about the time lines adhered to and required for installing CCTV cameras and the budgetary allocation made for such installations”, ordered the bench. Moreover, with regard to the budgetary allocation and the kind of cameras installed in the jail premises, an affidavit is also to be filed by the concerned official from the Home Ministry of the respondent-State with explanation as to why the life of CCTV footages is confined only to four days.On his visit, the aforesaid ADJ had observed that petitioner-accused Rahul was unable to walk properly. The Jail Superintendent was, therefore, asked to get accused Rahul medically examined and to furnish Certificate. “No such documents pertaining to his medical examination are placed on record”, the bench noted. Further, the medical report dated 20.03.2021 under the signature of Medical Officer In-charge shows that the patient was planned for x-ray, but the relevant x-ray in that behalf was also not placed on record.The bench noted that the punishment Ticket issued to the petitioner and the others shows that they were taken to jail OPD for medical treatment. However, the relevant certificates or reports of the concerned date are not placed on record. “The hand-written portion below the Punishment ticket shows that punishment of withdrawing mulakat alongwith phone and canteen facility was inflicted upon the concerned inmates. Such imposition of punishment was not in keeping with the relevant provisions”, the bench further said.The Supreme Court had earlier this month pulled up the Union Government for seeking more time regarding the installation of CCTV cameras in the offices of Central probe agencies such as CBI, NIA, NCB etc.On December 2, 2020, a bench headed by Justice RF Nariman had issued directions to install CCTV cameras in all police stations across the country to check instances of custodial torture. The Central Government was directed to install CCTVs in the offices of Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI), National Investigation Agency(NIA), Enforcement Directorate(ED), Narcotics Control Bureau(NCB), Directorate of Revenue Intelligence(DRI), Serious Fraud Investigation Office(SFIO).The matter was posted on March 2 for reporting compliance. Before that, the Central Government had circulated a letter seeking adjournment.Expressing displeasure at the letter seeking adjournment, Justice Nariman told the Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, “We are getting a distinct impression that you are dragging your feet. What kind of letter you have circulated?”.The Solicitor General replied that adjournment was sought having regard to the ‘ramifications’ of the order.”What ramifications? We are not concerned about the ramifications”, Justice Nariman shot back. “This concerns the rights of the citizens. This concerns the rights of citizenry under Article 21 of the Constitution. We are not accepting the excuses given in the letter”, the judge added.Click Hear To Download/Read Order Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
