Friends to the bitter end: A recipe for political disaster?

first_img Please enter your name here Mama Mia Mama Mia The Anatomy of Fear Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 So Greg, do you think Corrine’s friends should have just dropped their friendship with her, like a hot potato, when she was charged or found guilty??? That somehow being a good friend to her, would corrupt themselves likewise? That is called a fair weather friend, in my book, Greg. If she was an axe murderer, okay that would be a different matter. LOL 16 COMMENTS Mama Mia Mama Mia Do you care to share your thoughts on the trial of Ms. Corrine Brown, Greg? The fact that the jurors could not seem to reach an agreement on her guilt that was days into deliberation, then one juror heard a comment from another juror, something about “higher beings” and that juror reports it, then the other juror was questioned and removed from the case, that is, the one who had said something about “higher beings” which actually was a statement that the man said was,” that the Holy Spirit told him Ms. Brown was not guilty.” This juror was dismissed. Another juror was selected and pronto, a guilty verdict was rendered on 18 counts of charges very quickly. This was not a fair trial, plain and simple, in my opinion, and I don’t care who says it was. The authority figures probably read through the” writing on the wall” that the juror was not going to find her guilty, and they conveniently replaced him, because they wanted her found guilty, and she would not have been convicted if one juror voted her not guilty. Do you care to share your thoughts about the juror’s replacement Greg, as to do you believe the juror’s replacement was justified or not? I know you are much wiser than me on court proceedings, because of your extensive legal background. Mama Mia May 19, 2017 at 6:20 pm Mama Mia Reply My husband told me to read the sports page yesterday in the Orlando Sentinel because I never read that section, as it is poodle paper to me, anyway there was an article on page C5, I think it was, about when Donald Trump decided to get into the business of horse racing, like trying to get to the Kentucky Derby and other VIP horse races. Read it, and you will see just how honorable of a man Trump is……NOT! The poor horse, had to have his front hoofs amputated off due to Trump’s alleged insistence to keep pushing the horse, and training it, after a virus outbreak, where the very experienced trainer said that it was not advisable to keep pushing the horse, and wait and see, if it developed a virus, which the other horses it was housed with had gotten exposed to the virus in Ocala, Fl. Trump had also allegedly cheated the horse’s owner, who he was suppose to pay $500,000 for it, even after Trump agreed on that amount, Trump didn’t pay nothing at all, and the owner pushed back and Trump later said he would pay only $ 250,000 making the horse owner angry again, then the horse got a virus here in Florida, after the fact, and Trump pushed the horse, with training when he was told it needed rest, almost killing it, and the owner never got any money for his championship horse out of Trump, and the horse never raced again, or ran again, and had a short life……DJ Trump, was the horse’s name, after Trump insisted on renaming the horse, that he never paid one cent for. Mama Mia Reply Somehow posted that twice, oh well…..

Billions of dollars of arms sales to a country always suspected as the root to terrorism, in order to fight terrorism…..right! Oh, but it creates jobs so he says, but at what cost to our military men and women??????? Go figure…..whose side is Trump on anyway, seriously????? I thought it was American First, but I guess, that was just campaign rhetoric. May 21, 2017 at 10:54 am OpinionBy Greg Jackson
After watching folks rally around a convicted former Florida Congressperson, who misused resources from a make-believe nonprofit organization to fund a lavish lifestyle, I had the strangest thought: Isn’t it great to have a friend who will stick with you no matter what. While loyalty is something we all appreciate, it is really the loyalty of the “blind variety” that could prove to be problematic. Blind loyalty could lead to the degradation of one’s moral compass and a perpetuation of poor decision making. Get caught doing drugs; hey, a little fun never hurt anyone. Have an issue with the IRS because you misused funds; no problem, it’s not your fault taxes are such a burden. You take money from shady business deals; hey no big deal because no one is perfect. While I realize and agree that no one is without fault, I do believe that a little accountability never hurt anyone, even in small things such as keeping your word. When we condone and overlook the bad acts of one person, the affects are much more expansive than we realize. First off, the guilty person does not have to face the full consequences of his or her actions, which in effect justifies their actions.But what hurts more is the culture of corruption or apathy that may result.Greg JacksonTo prove my point, I did a little experiment. A few weeks ago, I let my son eat his sister’s Doritos and when she came and told me what happened, instead of correcting or chastising him, I had him to come down, told him I understood he was hungry and actually allowed him to get another snack to satisfy his hunger until dinner time. The following day without asking, my son ate his sister’s ice cream sandwiches. Again, I justified his actions by saying he was  probably just hungry and did not take any action. A few days later when the batteries went out in my son’s television remote, instead of walking to the kitchen to get replacement batteries, he took his sister’s batteries from her remote, again without asking. When my daughter came to me about the latest infraction, I completely disregarded his bad acts and instead gave her a short lecture on the importance of sharing. The next day, my daughter decided to turn the tables on her brother and went into his room and took several of his drawing pencils. When my son came to tell me what his sister had done she came right along with him, and before he could finish telling of his sister’s terrible deed she said matter-of-factly, “If you can do it, why can’t I?” What was revealed from this simple experiment was that if the bad acts of one is not corrected, not only will their actions continue, but others will follow suit and start doing comparable bad acts, which in this case was petty theft.Such is the state of politics. We have all heard of or witnessed in some form the culture of corruption that has unfortunately become associated with politics do to the bad acts of a few politicians, but, unlike other aspects of society we do not call for correction or consequences. It is as if we have come to expect politicians to cut deals with friends or associates without consequences, to lie about accomplishments without consequences, to disregard laws without consequences or simply to come around and pander for votes only when it is election time without consequences. Though minor in comparison to drugs, taxes and sex, allowing a politician to make promises without follow through or accountability can, and often times do, lead to greater transgressions. Many of us excuse the actions of elected officials and turn a blind eye to their antics as if they are our best friends who deserve our loyalty, when in fact the only loyalty they show to anyone else is their own efforts to remain in elected office. It is past time that we hold elected officials to the same standards that we hold ourselves, which is to deal with each other honestly and fairly, not just out of our own selfish gains or convenience. Perhaps instead of sitting quietly by and condoning the actions of our so-called political friends, we would do better in calling a bitter end to our loyalty to them — in my humble opinion. Greg Jackson is a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of Florida, veteran, current Orange County District 2 Representative on the Board of Zoning Adjustments, and General Counsel for the Community Redevelopment Agency. He has been as an active member of the Central Florida community for nearly 20 years. He was most recently a candidate for the Florida House District 45 seat. Reply May 21, 2017 at 3:28 pm Mama Mia May 21, 2017 at 1:57 pmcenter_img MAGA, on the other hand, the district Corrine Brown served, the one you speak of, that she served so long successfully in, was reshaped and redrawn by the GOP for the exact reason of hoping to get her defeated, IMO. She fought tooth and nail to retain her district lines, and I don’t blame her, as it was GOP political motivated to overthrow her. These charges came up before her re-election bid, which turned out to be her defeat, and we, the voters, will never know the truth, if it was due to the charges filed before hand of the election, or due to the newly drawn up redistrict. Whether one from this area wants to admit it or not, we lost a very good representative and good representation of monies going toward our area for improvements. Reply Mama Mia MAGA MAGA, all the people you mention above in your posting, are very intelligent people, I guess my descriptions of each one of them would be different than “bum”, the description you chose, but they all have their pitfalls, and some you mentioned, I sure don’t share their political agendas. Some of them just haven’t realized their pitfalls yet however, they will sooner or later, no doubt. And yes, I am also fully aware of the political antics that go on in Eatonville, or as the article you linked, refers to it as “Cheatonville” LOL May 21, 2017 at 11:08 am Mama Mia May 19, 2017 at 7:48 pm Can’t wait for Trump to get back to Washington DC to face the music. Turn up the heat on him, and make him sweat! Bring him back to reality. Oh, but maybe the searing desert heat in the middle east gave him a bad case of amnesia, especially when the new investigator take the bully by the horns…….. This Anthony Grant from Eatonville trial…….maybe I’m just dense, but I just don’t get that pop tart trial talk…..???????? WTH????? It is insulting to me to see Ms. Brown facing the music in the courts, found guilty at a questionable trial process, IMO, when there are politicians everywhere across this nation, and some in the daily news every single day, about conflict of interest, nepotism rules ignored, campaign money abuse, non-profit abuse, dealings with foreign mobsters, collusion with enemies of our country, the highest Medicaid illegal billings by a certain hospital owned by someone very well known to us Floridians, and yet all eyes and fire and brimstone and hateful comments about Ms. Brown. You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Reply Reply MAGA, as for Ms. Brown, “she had no problems going along with the BS gerrymandering of her district….,Jax and slivers down to OrMlando”……wait, Ms. Brown was not the person who drew up the boundary lines of the district, and that district that she ran for and was elected to, had to be approved of by the courts. If she wanted to run for elected office. why should she not “go along” with the district drawn up? Also highly insulting to me is riding down the 429, which is such a beautiful highway, and to see who it is named after, Daniel Webster. He is not worthy of the honor at all! Sitting by the tv and watching him and the other GOP’s celebrating repealing Obamacare and while at the same time not offering a equal or better healthcare option knowing people will suffer and some will die because of it, while at the same THAT BUNCH has great health insurance, super cheap, with their celebrating and grinning on the Rose Garden lawn at the White House….yes, I saw Daniel Webster grinning there, with his rat- fink face smile….shameful! Do you care to share your thoughts on the trial of Ms. Corrine Brown, Greg? The fact that the jurors could not seem to reach an agreement on her guilt that was days into deliberation, then one juror heard a comment from another juror, something about “higher beings” and that juror reports it, then the other juror was questioned and removed from the case, that is, the one who had said something about “higher beings” which actually was a statement that the man said was,” that the Holy Spirit told him Ms. Brown was not guilty.” That juror was dismissed.

Reply IMO, Ms. Brown is a bum. She was in the position so long that she felt she became untouchable. And she had no problems going along with the BS gerrymandering of her district….Jax and slivers down to Orlando. Give me a break.And Grant. He’s another bum. That man is the epitome of the smoke/fire cliche.

Will Genia – A Wallaby great in the making

Posted on by

first_imgWednesday Nov 11, 2009 Will Genia – A Wallaby great in the making Stand out performer against England on Saturday, young Wallaby scrumhalf Will Genias rise to fame has been rapid. Playing off the bench for most of the Super 14, he now looks to be the obvious successor to the great George Gregan.Since Gregan retired a few years back, the Wallabies have been searching in vain for a natural heir to the number nine throne. They seem to have finally succeeded, as the 21 year old is already being compared to both Gregan and Nick Farr-Jones.He was the second choice scrumhalf at the Queensland Reds for much of the season, but impressed to the extent that he made his debut for Australia in the Tri Nations against New Zealand. His first start came against South Africa, in what is now his home town, Brisbane.Genia was born and raised in Papua New Guinea, before moving to Brisbane when he was 12. He admits he didnt know anything about rugby union before then.“It is all rugby league in Port Moresby where I grew up,” he said. “I didn’t play any team sport when I was a kid. I just played a lot of backyard cricket. I never got involved in any sport at primary school.”“I kind of got into rugby because I was an islander and everyone just assumed I’d be good. I started off as a winger and moved into inside centre and then into halfback. I think I’m still fast though,” he added.At the age of 15 he watched in a boarding house with his schoolmates as Jonny Wilkinson slotted that famous dropgoal to beat the Wallabies in 2003.“Jonny Wilkinson broke my heart that night. There was a lot of English kids who wouldnt let it go. They still havent let it go.”Its now six years later, and on Saturday he played against the English at Twickenham, winning the Man of the Match award and scoring his maiden Test try.“You just take the opportunities as they come really. If it’s on to run, you run. If it’s on to kick, you kick. If it’s on to pass, you pass. You’ve just got to be aware of what’s in front of you,” said Genia.Australia face Ireland next, and while the Grand Slam is the goal, the 5ft 9ins halfback has another challenge ahead of him – getting the Man of the Match trophy home. Theyre only allowed 20kg in the bag, and the prize itself weighs 20kg.“It’s bigger than me!” he said. :: Related Posts :: Australia too good for England at Twickenham Time: 04:10ADVERTISEMENT 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.

Ma’a Nonu loses his boot as he sets up Israel Dagg winning try

Posted on by

first_imgTuesday Aug 24, 2010 Ma’a Nonu loses his boot as he sets up Israel Dagg winning try Thing didnt go quite as planned for John Smit this past weekend. Celebrating his 100th Test match, Smit and his side were on track for their first win of the Tri Nations, until Maa Nonu slipped the grasp of the Bok captain, leaving his boot as a souvenir before setting up Israel Dagg for the winning try. The try was featured in the highlights a few days ago, but it was without replays and all the rest, so heres a longer version since there has been a lot of talk about the Smit missed tackle, and the fact that Nonus boot was left in his clutches. Nonu – who for many years has been known as a superb tackle breaker but not a great distributor – then raced down field with only one boot on before delivering a pinpoint pass to replacement Dagg, who scored the decisive try with things tied up at 22-22, and 79 minutes on the clock. Smit admitted to the error in the post match interview, and has since spoken out on the pain of the loss, and the feeling within the camp that it is only up to them to get out of the miserable hole theyve found themselves in during the tournament. “You got to look at yourself and the mistakes. To lose a test in that manner was very emotional for me. Losing is one thing and I understand it. It doesnt mean I like it,” Smit said, before discussing the similarities between this year and the 2006 loss of form. “It is important not to use 2006 as an excuse and be comfortable with it and then to think that in 2011 we will be as good as we were in 2007. That is the trap we cant fall into. In 2010 we have a much more experienced side that is getting beaten like this. Perhaps it is a high mileage thing where some players have had a bit too much rugby and their bodies are talking. “Suspensions havent helped us either, and as much as we have excuses, we only have ourselves to blame. There is hurt and this weekend will highlight that. Weve felt this feeling before. “You want to reflect back on this in a years time when you need it when youre 20-all against Fiji. You want to remember this hurt. You want to reference back to this moment when you feel like actual death to get you out of that,” Smit added. “It’s always hard talking after the game when you are the loser. To be honest, we had very little to take out of the first three games. This one we know if we are a little closer intensity we want every week, we know we can make any team ordinary. “This is the team that is leading the way in world rugby and suddenly their passes went down and we were tackling them backwards. Suddenly we started to look like world champions again. Sunday I woke up and realised the biggest positive is that if we play right, we will win any game every time,” he said. As for Nonu, hes in the form of his life and has finally silenced the critics, whether he’s playing with one boot or two.   Time: 02:29 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The residence is located in the outskirts of the Colombo district, designed for a family of four. The key requirements of the client was to design a space which was timeless , a space to lay back and relax in as well as a safe and interesting environment for their children to grow up in. The house was designed as an escape from the busy monotonous life that the family experiences from their day to day activities. Hence a natural life, an experience of connecting with both oneself and the natural environment.Save this picture!© MAD FactoryThe setting of the residence makes it possible to reintegrate the pre-existing alignments of the land and to therefore conserve as many existing trees as possible. The living space was created as if living in the park by seamlessly connecting floors and creating courtyards to introduce greenery into the spaces. The interplay of light and shadow is brought about by the steel pergola structures which creates an ever-changing ambience as the day goes by. The large double height space creates a visual connect between the floors.Save this picture!© MAD FactorySave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© MAD FactoryDesigned to be one with nature, private decks and terraces adjoining the spaces provide a stunning view of the surrounding wilderness.

Much of the rest of the material palette was selected for its raw qualities. The use of honest materials adds a texture as well as making it a lively space.

She was told she was on a blacklist.”Such archaic practices run counter to the Pakistani government’s commitment to new, peaceful relations in south Asia,” the press freedom organisation said. “Indian journalists must be able to visit Pakistan freely. We urge you to explain the reasons for this measure and to order the destruction of blacklists of journalists banned from entering your country.”An immigration official at Lahore airport told Baweja she was being refused entry because she was on a “visa violation” blacklist. She told Reporters Without Borders she had no idea why her name appeared on such a list. The immigration department, which comes under the interior ministry, declined to give her any further explanation. Foreign ministry officials denied that her name was on any list.Speaking to Reporters Without Borders from New Delhi, Baweja said she had visited Pakistan dozen of times in the past 15 years and did not understand why she was barred this time. “All countries have the right to refuse someone a visa, but Pakistan granted me one and I landed in Lahore with a valid visa,” she said.A Pakistani information ministry official responsible for relations with foreign journalists told Reporters Without Borders he knew nothing about Baweja’s case.In an earlier case, Sandhu Kanwar, an editor with the Hindustan Times daily newspaper, was denied entry in Lahore because of a visa problem, in September 2004.

Half of COVID-19 vaccines administered in Chicago last week went to Black, Latinx residents

Posted on by

first_imgWLS-TVBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC NewsAmid efforts to “double down” on distribution equity, half of the COVID-19 vaccines administered last week in Chicago went to Black and Latinx residents, city officials said.During the first week of vaccinations in mid-December, when eligibility was limited to health care workers and long-term care facility staff and residents, that number was 18%, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said, calling the data “deeply disturbing.”“As soon as we saw these numbers, we doubled down even harder on our efforts to drive these life-saving vaccines into communities that need them most and ensure vaccination rates among residents of all races and ethnicities match the demographics of our city,” the mayor said during a press briefing Friday.Black and Latinx residents make up about 30% and 29%, respectively, of Chicago residents, though during the first week of vaccine administration, they received 8.1% and 9.8% of first doses, respectively. In the week ending Feb. 13, they received 23.6% and 26.2% of first doses, respectively.Meanwhile, 59.4% of first doses administered in the initial week went to white residents, who make up about half of the city’s population, and 15.1% to Asian residents, who represent about 7% of residents. In the most recent week, the number of first doses administered to those populations dropped to 41.4% and 5.6%, respectively.Vaccine equity has been a concern nationwide, as communities of color have been hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. Black Americans are 2.3 times more likely to die from COVID-19 compared to white Americans when age is taken into account, one analysis found.In Chicago, Black and Latinx residents account for nearly 72% of COVID-19 fatalities, based on city data, despite representing 59% of the city’s population.Lightfoot said that even before the city began administering vaccines, health officials knew “vaccine hesitancy, particularly among people of color, would be a significant challenge.”“And it has been,” she said, citing the initial data.To reach vulnerable populations, the city worked with several community partners, including unions and faith leaders, to provide education and access to the vaccine. In 15 neighborhoods hardest hit by the pandemic, the city has also gone “door to door” and into high-traffic areas like laundromats and grocery stores to help with scheduling appointments, Lightfoot said.“We still have a long way to go,” the mayor, who received her second dose of the vaccine Friday, said regarding the 50% vaccination rate. “I’m confident that that number will only continue to grow. It tells me that all of the outreach and education is finally breaking through.”On Jan. 25, vaccine eligibility was expanded to frontline essential workers and Chicagoans ages 65 and older.The city is expected to expand eligibility to all other essential workers and Chicagoans between the ages of 16 and 64 with underlying medical conditions on March 29, pending supply.ABC News’ Brian Hartman contributed to this report.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

The trouble

Posted on by

first_imgAttacks on an Afghan taxi driver, a teenage Muslim girl, a young Bangladeshi man – press reports of these incidents on British and US soils show the considerable current state of hostility towards those in the Islamic community. It follows that these violent reactions are likely to be echoed to some degree in confrontations in the workplace. With emotions running high, employers should be alert to the fact that certain employees may be being subjected to harassment.Employers in the US have to comply with legislation to provide a workplace that is free from harassment based on ethnicity, national origin or religion. These laws are likely to be tested significantly in the current climate.In most parts of Europe, the position on religious discrimination is less advanced. But those of us in the EU now need to prepare for changes which mean that by December 2003 employees will have legal protection from discrimination on the grounds of religion.Employers will be liable for acts of discrimination by their employees. Harassment on religious grounds may be more subtle than in other contexts, and therefore difficult to control or prevent. Workplace banter in particular should be carefully monitored – what may be inoffensive to one person may be extremely offensive to another.Act now to stamp out intolerant behaviour and sentiment and it will be far easier to comply with the legislation when it does take effect. Raising awareness and training managers and employees in their new responsibilities is key. Although there will be new and untested issues to address, with a degree of foresight, employers who already have a proactive approach to avoiding discrimination should be able to adapt existing policies and minimise liability.The Framework DirectiveThere is a distinct lack of uniformity among EU member states in the treatment of discrimination generally. With the exception of the 1976 Equal Treatment Directive, member states have been free to make their own choices as to what is and is not unlawful discrimination. This is about to change.By virtue of the new European Framework Directive, all member states are required to introduce legislation prohibiting discrimination on the grounds of gender, disability, age, sexual orientation and religion or belief. A separate directive deals with race discrimination.Existing RemediesExisting protection is somewhat haphazard and in some instances non-existent in most EU member states. It is no accident that a key exception is Northern Ireland, where religious differences and terrorist activities have been addressed through specific laws aimed at combating religious discrimination. Since 1976 it has been unlawful to discriminate in employment there on the grounds of religious belief and/or political opinion.The Northern Ireland Government’s intention was to promote equality of opportunity and fair participation in the workplace. It is an integral part of the employer’s personnel management function to ensure compliance with these objectives. Failure to do so may lead to a claim in the Fair Employment Tribunal.Elsewhere in Europe, certain employers have included religious discrimination in their equal opportunities policies by making harassment on the grounds of religion a disciplinary offence. Otherwise, aggrieved employees have had to try to adapt existing legislation like the Race Relations Act 1976 in the UK, where attempts have been made to extend the category of “ethnic group” to cover religious communities. Sikhs and Jews have been held to constitute ethnic groups in the UK, but Muslims and other groups have not.In the current climate, therefore, a Muslim who is abused either physically or verbally in the workplace has no remedy for direct discrimination and has to try to claim indirect race discrimination with the additional hurdles that involves. This is obviously unsatisfactory.Human Rights legislation has also been seen as a potential means of redress for employees of public authorities in the UK. A claim may be made for a breach of Article 9 which enshrines freedom of thought, conscience and religion. An employee of a private entity would have to take a much less direct route and try to tack on a religious discrimination issue as part of another claim for, say, unfair dismissal by attempting to show that his religion had a bearing on the decision to dismiss. The Framework Directive provides a much more direct and tailored route for the aggrieved employee.Changes in 2003Member states have to introduce domestic legislation prohibiting religious discrimination by 2 December 2003. Both direct and indirect discrimination are prohibited. The directive is framed to give protection to those who are not members of a defined group as well as those who suffer for holding a particular religious belief or belonging to a religious group. Neither “religion” nor “belief” is defined, so many test cases are anticipated.In Northern Ireland, there has been a particular struggle with the terms “religious belief” and “political opinion” as indicators of Catholic or Protestant ethnicity as compared with religious belief or political opinion per se. Tribunal decisions have shown that the term “religious belief” covers more than just Catholic and Protestant beliefs.Cases brought by a Hindu and a born-again Christian have been successful. It has been held that it is discrimination to treat an individual less favourably on grounds of religious belief, even if that belief belongs to a third party – a wife or child, for example. And an individual may be discriminated against because of his or her perceived religious belief or political opinion.In hindsight, it could be said that the legislators left the terms “religious belief and political opinion” general to avoid a technical loophole for would-be discriminators. It will be for the courts of the various member states to deal with the limitations on the protection as the inevitable inventive claims are brought. The Northern Ireland experience, however, is useful in illustrating the likely approach elsewhere.There is an important safeguard built into the directive to avoid abuse. The provisions are stated to be without prejudice to measures laid down by national law necessary for public security, maintenance of public order, prevention of criminal offences, protection of health and the protection of the rights and freedom of others. An employee who takes drugs as part of religious worship would not, therefore, be able to claim discrimination if dismissed for having committed a criminal offence. There is also a “genuine occupational requirement” defence. It states that there must be a legitimate objective and the requirement must be proportionate.
