UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Florida Residents: Beware of Fraud, Scams and Price Gouging State and federal recovery officials encourage Florida residents to watch for and report any suspicious activity or potential fraud from scam artists, identity thieves and other criminals who may try to prey on survivors vulnerable due to the recent hurricanes. They should also be on the lookout for price gouging by gas stations, hotels and other businesses serving disaster survivors in Florida.FEMA encourages survivors to be especially vigilant for these common post-disaster fraud practices:Fraudulent building contractorsUse only licensed local contractors backed by reliable references.Demand that contractors carry general liability insurance and workers’ compensation.Don’t pay more than half the costs of repairs upfront.Bogus pleas for post-disaster donationsVerify legitimate solicitations by asking for the charity’s exact name, street address, phone number and Web address.Phone the charity and confirm that the person asking for funds is a genuine employee or volunteer.Don’t pay donations with cash.Request a receipt with the charity’s name, street address, and phone number.Fake offers of state or federal aidBeware of visits, telephone calls or e-mails — claiming to be from FEMA or the State of Florida — asking for your Social Security number, bank account number or other sensitive information.Avoid scam artists who promise a disaster grant and ask for large cash deposits or advance payments in full.Federal and state workers never solicit or accept money or charge applicants for disaster assistance, inspections or help in filling out applications.Those who question the validity of a contact or suspect fraud are encouraged to call the toll free FEMA Disaster Fraud Hotline at 866-720-5721 or the Florida Attorney General’s fraud and price gouging hotline at 866-966-7226.

Cubans speak in U.S.: ‘It’s time to end U.S. blockade!’

first_imgIn a first since the formalization of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Cuba, revolutionary Cuban representatives — Kenia Serrano, president of the Cuban Institute for Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP), and Leima Martinez, North American Division of ICAP — spoke in New York, New Jersey, Washington, D.C., and the California Bay Area. Serrano is also a parliamentarian in Cuba’s National Assembly.From left: Prof. Felix Kury, KeniaSerrano, Clarence Thomas,Delores Lemon-Thomas, LeimaMartinez at Richmond, Calif.meeting, Nov. 13.Photo: Bill HackwellThroughout two weeks of exchanges, from Nov. 3-17, the Cuban representatives thanked the solidarity movement for its tireless work to win the freedom of the Cuban 5 — the anti-terrorist Cuban State Security agents unjustly imprisoned in the U.S. in 1998. Last Dec. 17, the final three men returned to Cuba, part of the agreement to renew formal diplomatic relations with Cuba, which had been broken by the U.S. in 1961.Especially recognized for their decades of fearless challenges to the U.S. ban on travel to Cuba were the Venceremos Brigade and the Friendshipment Caravans of the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization, founded by the late Rev. Lucius Walker.Right off a plane from Miami on Nov. 4, Serrano and Martinez spoke to a class at John Jay College in New York. Then they met with social justice organizers at the historic site of the Hotel Theresa, location of the famous 1960 Harlem meeting between Fidel Castro and Malcolm X. Next was a packed public event in the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center — formerly the Audubon Ballroom, where Malcolm X was killed. The next day, they discussed Cuba’s health care revolution at New Jersey’s Essex County College.At the National Network on Cuba’s annual meeting in Washington on Nov. 7-8, the Cuban women interacted with organizations from Texas, Minnesota, Illinois and Michigan — places they could not visit on this trip. NNOC co-chairs received an ICAP flag with the image of Fidel Castro and a Certificate of Recognition for the work done by the NNOC to free the five Cuban Heroes.The University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law co-sponsored a public meeting with the DC Metro Coalition in Solidarity with the Cuban Revolution and the NNOC. Students from the Maryland International Day School opened and closed the program with bilingual songs, spoken words of Cuban hero Jose Marti and dance.Packed meetings continued in the Bay Area, where historic support for the Cuban Revolution is strong. Seven U.S. graduates of Cuba’s Latin American School of Medicine met with the Cuban women they knew from their school days.The visit of the two revolutionary Cuban women was symbolic of what has been achieved without concessions after more than 55 years. Serrano credited “the resistance of the Cuban people and international solidarity — including the people of the United States.”Blockade, ‘regime change’ still U.S. policyBut while formal diplomatic relations and bilateral discussions are taking place between the U.S. and Cuba, the economic, commercial and financial blockade is still in place. Cuba still cannot use U.S. dollars for foreign trade, making it impossible to pay for technology that Washington has approved for sale to Cuba. When trade is permitted for food, Cuba must pay with cash in advance and cannot use Cuban ships to transport the goods.Although the rhetoric of the bilateral discussions is positive, forces intent on defeating the Cuban revolution are still there. The U.S. budgets an average of $20 million per year for “regime change” programs that are opposed by the majority of the Cuban people. Guantanamo has been illegally occupied by the U.S. military for more than 100 years. The prison there should be closed and the territory returned to Cuba.Serrano reiterated ICAP’s commitment to Latin American and Caribbean continental integration as the only way to guarantee real independence. “On Jan. 1, 1959, Cuba won our independence and sovereignty. The current very good dialogue has achieved many things, but Cuba won’t accept reduction in our sovereignty.”Videos of most major events during the tour are posted on the National Network on Cuba website: NNOC.info/livestream.LaBash is a co-chair of the National Network on Cuba.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

In new wave of violence against media, de facto regime “reaps what it sowed”

first_img(Photo: AFP) News News Receive email alerts RSF_en Reporters Without Borders condemns the new wave of violence against the media that took place last week, while Honduras appeared to be further than ever from resolving the crisis resulting from President Manuel Zelaya’s removal in a coup on 28 June.“The de facto government has again illustrated its concept of press freedom by pitting soldiers and police against news media that are critical of the coup,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The attacks on community and education media are yet another sign of the deterioration in the general press freedom situation since 28 June.”The press freedom organisation added: “The de facto government is reaping what it sowed when it launched a war on the media at the time of the coup. We urge the activists of the National Front for Resistance to the Coup not to use physical violence against media that back the de facto government or the employees of these media.”Lidieth Diaz of Radio Globo – one of the few remaining news media still critical of the de facto government – said she was denied access to the presidential palace on 13 August on the personal instructions of de facto President Micheletti when she want to cover a ceremony in which Micheletti was participating. She was allowed in several hours later after the office of the human rights ombudsman intervened.Radio Progreso, a Jesuit-run educational radio station, said reporter Gustavo Cardoza was attacked by police while covering the eviction of Zelaya supporters from their housing in Choloma, in the northeastern department of Cortés, on 14 August. Cardoza said he was attacked and beaten while a policeman pointed a gun at him. Witnesses confirmed that six officials hit him several times in the head as he lay motionless on the ground. He was taken to a police station and held for several hours until lawyers from the National Front for Resistance to the Coup interceded.During the same operation, police manhandled photographer Julio Umaña of the daily Tiempo and confiscated his camera although he had just shown his press accreditation. Tiempo said other members of its staff have been attacked while covering recent demonstrations in support of the ousted president.Soldiers backed by police arrested Alfredo López, the head of Radio Coco Dulce, a community radio station, during a demonstration by the National Front for Resistance to the Coup on 12 August in Tegucigalpa and released later that night, the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) said.Journalists working for pro-Micheletti media have also been the targets of violence. On 15 August, five Molotov cocktails were thrown at the Tegucigalpa headquarters of the daily El Heraldo, which gives the de facto government strong support. Only three of the devices exploded. Several of its reporters and photographers have been threatened or physically attacked by Zelaya supporters, who accuse it of participating in a conspiracy to oust the president.Members of the National Front for Resistance to the Coup demonstrated outside the Tegucigalpa headquarters of La Tribuna on 15 August, verbally attacking its editor and staff. Two days prior to that, four hooded men set fire to one of the newspaper’s distribution trucks.

Al-Wasit journalists get off without prison terms

first_img Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” News Reporters Without Borders voiced relief today on learning that Al-Wasit editor Ayad al-Tamimi and reporter Ahmed Mutare Abass left a Baghdad court as free men at the end of a libel trial about several articles published last year criticising local police and judicial officials. The court did not impose any jail sentence. ————————————————————————–17.08.2006 Two journalists go on trial while wave of arrests continues in northReporters Without Borders appealed today for clemency in a trial that began yesterday in Baghdad in which Al-Wasit editor Ayad al-Tamimi and reporter Ahmed Mutare Abass face the possibility of long prison terms on charges of libelling the police, judicial and municipal authorities in Al-Kut, southeast of the capital.The trial concerns several articles published last year, including one criticising the judicial system and one about alleged police corruption. Arrested in April 2005 on the orders of the mayor of Kawit, they have already served six-month prison terms imposed by an Al-Kut court.They are now being tried on four counts of violating article 226 of the Iraqi criminal code. The case was finally transferred to a Baghdad court at their request on the grounds that the judges in Al-Kut were biased against them.“The situation of these two journalists reflects the current climate in Iraq, which is not very favourable for the development of a truly independent press,” Reporters Without Borders said.There has been a wave of arrests of journalists since the start of August, especially in the northern Kurdish region where around a dozen journalists covering peaceful demonstrations in the Sulaimaniya area have been arrested and some held for several hours. Cases have been reported of police destroying photographers’ material and an Associated Press correspondent in the region was banned by the authorities from covering protests.Seven other journalists were arrested during a demonstration on 13 August in Sulaimaniya, which is one of the Kurdish region’s most important cities. Two of them were still being held yesterday although it was hoped they would be freed soon following a call from a local journalists’ defence group. Although detained journalists are for the most part being held for only several hours, this still poses a significant obstacle to their work.

Close confidant of Pope to address MIC Limerick conference

first_imgMIC Student Experience Virtual Sessions NewsClose confidant of Pope to address MIC Limerick conferenceBy Staff Reporter – June 25, 2017 1082 MIC Lecturer Shines New Lens on Primary Geography in New Publication A cardinal recognised as a lead reformer within the Church hierarchy and chosen by Pope Francis to present Amoris Laetitia – the papacy’s letter on the ‘family’ – will be the star turn at a major conference here next month.‘Let’s Talk Family: Let’s Be Family’, which will be held at Mary Immaculate College,  Limerick is the first major conference to be held as part of the build-up to the World Meeting of Families next year in Ireland.Keynote speaker at the afternoon and evening gathering will be Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, who was chosen by Pope Francis to present Amoris Laetitia following the two Synods on the Family in 2014 and 2015.  The Cardinal, who is Archbishop of Vienna, will give two separate addresses, one specifically on Amoris Laetitia and the other, a public lecture in the evening on ‘The Parish: Family of Families’. During the afternoon session, also, he will lead an academic discussion on Amoris Laetitia one year on.The event is being organised by MIC Limerick Institute for Pastoral Studies and, according to its Director, Fr. Eamonn Fitzgibbon, will be a timely opportunity through one of the Pope’s closest confidants to get a deeper understanding of Pope Francis and the Church’s direction on the institution of the family.“The World Meeting of Families next year will be the biggest single event in the life of the Church on this island since the Pope’s visit in 1979.  The build up to it is of huge importance also as it will effectively provide for an ongoing conversation about the family and how we see it and value it in Ireland.  Our conference on July 13th will be one of the biggest platforms to date for that conversation, not least with because of Cardinal Christoph Schönborn.  He’s as close to Pope Francis as we can get when it comes to Amoris Laetitia, which is a very significant letter from Pope Francis on his understanding of family.“There has been quite an amount of controversy about Amoris Laetitia, with some hardliners in the Church arguing it has gone too far.  Others say it hasn’t gone far enough. Some say it is ambiguous.  Cardinal Schönborn will be able to give clarity to us in a way that no one else can other than Pope Francis.  We’re very much looking forward to his visit.”Fr. Fitzgibbon said that the need for a reforming Church and the leadership of Pope Francis and the likes of Cardinal Schönborn, has never been greater in the context of the family as we know it.“Amoris Laetitia and the World Meeting of Families could not be better timed.  It’s undeniable that the family, as we have known it, is changing in many respects and challenged like never before in Ireland today. The World Meeting of Families, and the expected visit of Pope Francis in 2018 comes in the midst of a ‘perfect storm’ for the Church, much of it of its own making, which challenges the Church’s teaching on family.“But history has shown us that at some stage in a storm, a shard of light breaks through and Amoris Laetitia is that. And here in Ireland, we have a second ray ahead with the World Meeting of Families.  As a Church, we need this renewal and family needs this renewal.”Amoris Laetitia will be, he said, the frame for the build-up and the World Meeting of Families itself.   “The pope’s letter on the family is enlightened. It repositions the Church, a more compassionate, embracing and understanding Church, to meet the challenges that family faces. It does not try to set out an ideal family but rather understand the complexity of family as we know it today. Above all, it seeks to, discover how the ‘joy of love’, the translation of Amoris Laetitia, can flourish in family today.“There’s deep understanding in it as it reaches out to divorced people, to marriages of different faiths; it respects people in families with homosexual tendencies. It speaks to our own failures as priests; as Pope Francis stated ‘I want to remind priests that the confessional must not be a torture chamber, but rather an encounter with the Lord’s mercy’.”In addition to the Cardinal’s involvement, other speakers at ‘Let’s Talk Family: Let’s Be Family’ include Martin Kennedy, a freelance trainer and facilitator with church and community groups who has recently been appointed as Pastoral Programme Coordinator for the World Meeting of Families, and Jessie Rogers, a Limerick based lecturer in Sacred Scripture at St Patrick’s College, Maynooth, a Godly Play trainer and on her way to qualifying as a spiritual director.The event opens at 2p.m. and all elements will take place at the Tara Building, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick.  To book your place, go to www.irishinstituteforpastoralstudies.com, call Deirdre on 061 204507 or email [email protected] The full programme costs €20 to attend, with a €10 fee for the public lecture at 7p.m. RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Email Linkedin WhatsApp Printcenter_img Previous articleLimerick Summer Music lights up with Vladimir and AntonNext articleLimerick blogger discusses search for perfect partner in new TV ad Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie New Report from MIC Reveals the Reality of Human Trafficking in Ireland TAGSConferenceMary Immaculate CollegeMICpopereligion Twitter Facebook Limerick’s Student Radio Station Wired FM Celebrates 25 Years on Air MIC Lecturer Elected to Board of International Society for Music Education MIC Teams Up with GPA on New Scholarship Scheme for Postgraduate Students last_img read more

ECISD announced a strategic and high priority “ACCESS” partnership with Medical Center Health System, Odessa Regional Medical Center, Texas Tech – Family Practice of Odessa aligned with the six-point program of Odessa College and Star Tech Group technology solutions to strengthen student engagement in our middle schools, at Wilson and Young Middle School Friday, June 15, 2018. ORMC will partner with Nimitz and Crockett middle schools; Medical Center will partner with Bonham and Bowie middle schools; and Texas Tech University Family Practice will partner with Wilson & Young and Ector Middle School.The initiative includes an online and on-site component where students will be able to talk to medical professionals and ask them questions online.“Engagement and involvement of the students from the elementary to middle school and high school drops all the way from 75 percent to 34 percent,” Shakamuri said. “If the students are not engaged, the teachers cannot teach. We have good teachers. The only way to engage them (students) is to give them something that makes sense to them.”Officials said every campus has a champion for the initiative and Welton Blaylock, dance director at Wilson & Young, serves in that capacity for the campus. He said it is supposed to start in the fall.“To me, the benefit for the kids is actually having live bodies that are actually in those health fields to prepare them. You can ask them questions where it’s not just on paper, but they can actually see that person, make that connection and then build on that trust within them,” Blaylock said.During the news conference, Shakamuri said middle school students will be able to shadow people in the medical field, and in high school, internships would be possible.Shakamuri said he has been in Odessa for 22 years and seen four booms and four busts. When the booms occur, the money flows in and when the busts happen, the money moves out.“It is important for the students to have the ability to learn continuously and have fun doing that and able to understand what opportunities are right here in West Texas,” Shakamuri said.
