Facebook Madeline Hamm printBesides their ABCs, addition and subtraction, students at Tanglewood Elementary School are learning financial skills.Students from kindergarten to third grade go through a six-week Junior Achievement (JA) program. The topics range from learning the difference between needs and wants, how money moves through a community and how to make deposits and withdrawals from a bank account.Students wait after school in carpool line outside of Tanglewood Elementary School.Junior Achievement, which started in Tarrant County in 1956, began as an after-school program to teach students how to create and operate a business. It has grown to over 150 sponsoring companies that serve approximately 30,000 students annually, according to their website.“Junior Achievement offers activity-based, interactive instruction that focuses on entrepreneurship, financial literacy, as well as work and college readiness,” said Priscilla Miller, education manager of Junior Achievement of The Chisholm Trail, Inc. “Local volunteers bring business relevancy to the classroom and reinforce the value of education.”“What makes this program unique is our local volunteers who share their real-world experiences with the students,” Miller said.Amy McCullough has volunteered with JA for the past two years. She is an employment manager for First Command Financial Services and said she loves working directly with the children.“This year, we are going to be reading from a book and learning all about working on a farm, trading, money and planting a garden,” McCullough said. “It is so much fun to have interaction and to be part of their education.”Tanglewood Principal Connie Smith said she likes the program because it meets the state standards, the kids really enjoy it and the teachers believe it’s a solid program.“I enjoy the time that I am afforded to be able to volunteer and give back to my community,” McCullouch said. “It is fulfilling to make a difference in a child’s life, even if very small.”Williams Trew at Tanglewood (courtesy of Junior Achievement) Madeline Hammhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madeline-hamm/ Twitter Linkedin Twitter There have been three sexual assaults involving students since the fall semester began, and campus police informed the community through crime alerts.

Asia – Pacific News Causes for concernIn India (131st), journalists were exposed to violence stemming from the persistent conflicts in the states of Chhattisgarh and Jammu and Kashmir. The threat from mafia groups operating in the main cities of the coutnry also contributed to self-censorship. However, the authorities were no better. In May, they unveiled the “Information Technology Rules 2011,” which have dangerous implications for online freedom of expression. Foreign reporters saw their visa requests turned down or were pressured to provide positive coverage. In Indonesia, an army crackdown in West Papua province, where at least two journalists were killed, five kidnapped and 18 assaulted in 2011, was the main reason for the country’s fall to 146th position in the index. A corrupt judiciary that is too easily influenced by politicians and pressure groups and government attempts to control the media and Internet have prevented the development of a freer press.Illegal detention and intimidation in Mongolia (100th) and the Maldives (73rd) showed up the weakness of press freedom there. A climate of religious intolerance prevailed in the Maldives, where media organizations were subjected to threats by the authorities and had to deal with an Islamic affairs ministry bent on imposing the Sharia to the detriment of free expression. Authoritarianism and ambivalence at the bottom of the indexFreedom of information worsened considerably in two Asian countries under authoritarian rule.China, which has more journalists, bloggers and cyber-dissidents in prison than any other country, stepped up its censorship and propaganda in 2011 and tightened its control of the Internet, particularly the blogosphere. The first protest movements in Arab countries and the ensuing calls for democracy in China’s main cities set off a wave of arrests with no end yet in sight.In the autonomous regions of Tibet, Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang, protests by minorities regularly gave rise to a harsh crackdown by the authorities. In Beijing and Shanghai, international correspondents were particular targets of the security forces and had to work under the continual threat of expulsion or having their visas withdrawn. Journalists were prevented from covering most of the events that threatened China’s stability or might have given it a negative image. Vietnam (172nd) appeared to follow China’s repressive lead and fell seven places. Politically committed journalists and pro-democracy bloggers were harassed by the authorities while the courts continued to invoke state security to hand out prison sentences ranging from two to seven years. The blogger Pham Minh Hoang, for example, was sentenced to three years in prison and three years under house arrest on 10 August on a charge of trying to overthrow the government. to go further June 7, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information In Sri Lanka (163rd), the stranglehold of the Rajapakse clan forced the last few opposition journalists to flee the country. Any that stayed behind were regularly subjected to harassment and threats. Attacks were less common but impunity and official censorship of independent news sites put an end to pluralism and contributed more than ever to self-censorship by almost all media outlets. Burma (169th) showed signs of beginning to carry out reforms including partial amnesties and a reduction in prior censorship, but it remained largely under the control of an authoritarian government run by former members of the military junta reinvented as civilian politicians. Less than 10 of its journalists remain in prison at the start of 2012.In North Korea (178th), although news and information was able to move across its borders to a greater extent, no one knows whether this will continue under Kim Jong-un, the son and heir of Kim Jong-il. The dynastic succession, the dominance of the military machine and the government’s desire for power give no grounds for optimism. At the top, the good boys turn badThose who are traditionally good performers did not shine in 2011. With New Zealand’s fall to 13th position, no country in the Asia-Pacific region figured among the top 10 in the index. Hong Kong (54th) saw a sharp deterioration in press freedom in 2011 and its ranking fell sharply. Arrests, assaults and harassment worsened working conditions for journalists to an extent not seen previously, a sign of a worrying change in government policy.In Australia (30th), the media were subjected to investigations and criticism by the authorities, and were denied access to information, while in Japan (22nd) coverage of the tsunami and the Fukushima nuclear accident gave rise to excessive restrictions and exposed the limits of the pluralism of the country’s press.

With 10 deaths in 2011, Pakistan was the world’s deadliest country for journalists for the second year in a row.In the Philippines (140th), which rose again in the index after falling in 2010 as a result of the massacre of 32 journalists in Ampatuan in November 2009, paramilitary groups and private militias continued to attack media workers. The judicial investigation into the Ampatuan massacre made it clear that the response of the authorities was seriously inadequate. Journalists continued to be exposed to violence in Bangladesh (129th) and Nepal (106th), although less than in the past. In Nepal, journalists were regularly subjected to threats from rival political groups and their supporters. In Bangladesh, opposition groups and the ruling Awami League took turns to attack and obstruct the press. Despite genuine media pluralism, the law allows the government to maintain excessive control over the media and the Internet.In Nepal, a decline in attacks by Maoist groups in the south and greater efficiency on the part of the justice system account for the modest improvement in the country’s ranking. However, press freedom was marred by threats and attacks by politicians and armed groups throughout the year.

Print Facebook Ann McCabe and Ben O’Sullivan at Henry Street Garda Station to launch the Jerry Mc Cabe 20th anniversary concert.Speaking then, Limerick Superintendent Derek Smart, now Tipperary Chief Superintendent, said two suspected members of the IRA gang were “still outstanding” and that Gardaí were eager to interview them.“We are still pursuing it. The investigation hasn’t gone away. The investigation is still live,” he said.“We are continuing to pursue people who may have been involved, and that will keep going until we bring them to justice.”It has been previously suggested in media reports that one of the wanted men moved to Spain and the other had been hiding out in South America, but Gardaí said they did not know their exact locations.Both men remain at large today.Speaking a fortnight ago, Ann McCabe poignantly revealed how, due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, she and her family were prevented from attending an annual Garda Memorial event at Dublin Castle, where 88 gardai, including her late husband, who died in the line of duty, were remembered.The event was streamed live for the families.“I watched it in my sitting room, but it was very moving and a few tears were shed,” Mrs McCabe said.“It was very sad for us really, because it is a lovely ceremony, and normally you do get to meet a lot of retired members, serving members, and friends you might not have met for some time,” she added.Det McCabe was remembered at his anniversary mass today in Limerick, however, coronavirus restrictions again prevented, the McCabe family from attending.Anyone with information about the location about the two suspected IRA gang members can contact gardai at Henry Street, Limerick, (061-212400) or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666-111.

Pinterest Twitter ECISD undergoing ‘equity audit’ Home Local News Baton twirlers brushing up on skills WhatsApp Middle and high school girls from feeder schools of Permian High School and PHS itself are spending the summer sprucing up their baton twirling skills in preparation for camp and the school year.Lisa Henson, Pam Brewer and Naticia Dodson are putting dozens of girls through their paces during private lessons. Although they usually go to camp in another city, they are having one locally this year, June 26 through June 29. Henson said local coaches and coaches from out of town will come in during the camp, which will cover everything from routines to hair and make-up.Practices are held throughout the day at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, Permian High School and Henson’s house.Brewer said the girls are required to practice for at least 30 minutes at home working the tricks they have learned, plus their routine.Twirling may look easy, but the girls say it’s not; it requires a lot of work.“Because they have to come back the next day knowing what we have done because we have to move on the next day,” Brewer said.Despite all the time she has to put in, 13-year-old Magdelyn Nunez, who is going into eighth grade at Nimitz, said it’s rewarding.“In the end, everyone compliments us,” Nunez said. Dodson, who was working with girls from Wilson & Young Medal of Honor Middle School, said the lessons are offered every summer.“We are preparing for our summer exhibition show off and routines for the year,” she said.The week of June 11 was the third week of practice. “We’re doing well. I’m excited. We’ve started to catch some of our more advanced tricks like tossing and turning and catching, so we’re definitely developing all of our skills for the school year,” Dodson said.Thirteen-year-old Elloralinda Ortega will be going into eighth grade at Wilson & Young and this is her second year of twirling. She got interested in twirling in sixth grade when she saw other girls doing it. They were moving fast, which is something she likes to do.“I get to learn new things that I can do with just a baton it makes me think about what I can do just with other things,” she said.Alyssa Rodriguez, a 13-year-old going into eighth grade at Wilson & Young, has been taking lessons for two years.“… I think it’s something new and it’s wonderful to try if you want to go out of your comfort zone and do something cool,” Rodriguez said.She added that it’s a lot harder than it looks.Henson is the coach for Bonham Middle School and the Permian JV twirlers. Brewer works with the Permian Varsity and Henson, Brewer and Dodson assist. The lessons also help the girls gel into a team.They plan to participate in a competition in Lubbock in a couple of weeks.Natalie Akin, 13, who is going into eighth grade at Bonham Middle School, said they are learning skills while having fun.“We’re getting advanced in something that we all love doing,” Akin said.Gabryella Garcia, 13, will also be going into eighth grade at Bonham.“I love how we can just have fun while working hard at the same time and how you can create a team with people you barely even know and then you wind up being close friends with them,” Garcia said.Henson said Garcia also does gymnastics and she’s adding some of the routines this year for the first time.

Home » News » Marketing » Zoopla – The House Whisperer previous nextMarketingZoopla – The House WhispererZoopla to launch biggest-ever TV Campaign On Boxing DayThe Negotiator16th December 20150714 Views Zoopla is set to return to the small screen on Boxing Day with a series of new national TV adverts. The portal has released a teaser video to give a preview of the forthcoming advert.The new campaign, which is called “Knowing More”, will be Zoopla’s biggest national campaign to date and includes national radio and ‘out of home’ advertising. It is expected that 91% of the UK will see a Zoopla TV ad on average 37 times during the campaign period.The first TV ad, which airs on Boxing Day, features an estate agent with a couple and centres around the character of the ‘house whisperer’ – a house-hunter who appears to be ‘communicating’ with the home to find out key bits of information about it and the area, but their source turns out to be Zoopla.The campaign will be highly memorable, combining humour and entertainment and is designed to convince the nation to start their property search on Zoopla. The adverts will air in some of the most high-profile TV spots on Boxing Day and beyond including: Coronation Street, Live Premier League Football and Gogglebox and will be specifically aimed at increasing the already impressive brand awareness for Zoopla.Gareth Helm, Chief Marketing Officer for Zoopla Property Group said: “Zoopla took a break from TV and focused on other marketing channels over the last year and has seen some excellent results. We have an opportunity to now move this on further by coming back to TV with a big-bang during what is traditionally one of the busiest periods for TV viewing and the property market. Moving house is an important decision but advertising around it should still be entertaining. We’ll be capitalising upon this with light hearted and fun advertising that will standout against other campaigns, drive more visits to Zoopla, increase brand exposure for our members and ultimately generate more leads for agents listing on Zoopla.”To view the teaser, please CLICK HERE.portal TV advertising teaser video Zoopla Zoopla TV adverts December 16, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Last Saturday, October 1st, future-funk all-star GRiZ took Red Rocks Amphitheatre by storm for his second sold out show at the iconic amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. His dedicated fan base known as ‘GRiZ Family’ showed up in numbers early in the day while embodying GRiZ’s overarching message of “Show Love, Spread Love.”Hugs, high-fives, and good vibes were in abundance from the minute the gates opened and the love carried all the way through the last note played at the after party at the Gothic Theatre in Denver, also headlined by GRiZ. Coming fresh off the release of Good Will Prevail, his fourth full-length album which made it to #12 overall album on iTunes on release day, his return to Colorado was sure to be full of surprises. While expectedly playing a few tunes for the first time live and offering VIP remixes specially crafted for the event, GRiZ also had a number of special guests appearances, which added an extra dimension to the show.In addition to Ida Hawk singing on several songs, other guests included Kevin Donahue of SunSquabi on guitar and Ivan Jackson from Brasstracks on trumpet. The night began with a smooth performance by Detroit duo Gosh Pith as the stands filled quickly, followed by Artifakts who brought some electronic hip-hop beats into the mix alongside drummer Ben Ricker. The Brooklyn based band Brasstracks had direct support duties, bringing their own unique flavor of horn infused remixes and originals which played well into GRiZ’s saxophone laden jams which would come next. Natalie Cressman also sat in during the set, lending her skills as a trombonist to the band’s electric mix.GRiZ opened the show with a surprise saxophone intro perfromed above the sound board and surrounded by fans before slipping through the crowd onto the stage for the first big drop alongside guitar player/singer Muzzy Bear. While mixing through songs new and old, the Detroit born producer could be seen grooving across the stage and pouring his heart into his saxophone leads atop his DJ table.In one of the most interesting turn of events, flames lit up the stage while GRiZ played a heartfelt solo that brought him to his knees before running back to his controller to deliver as huge drop as flames shot toward the sky. By the end of the performance, GRiZ had a call and echo with the crowd, having fans yelling at the top of their lungs “I believe, all we need, in this world, is more love.”One thing is for sure, GRiZ is all about the good vibes which could be why Colorado is now a second home for the 26-year-old label head of All Good Records. Although our memories are still fresh from this year’s special show, we are already looking forward to next year’s “GRiZ Rocks.” Load remaining images
