The donation included Adirondack chairs for the library, picnic tables for the covered basketball court and a bookshelf for one of the campus offices.Great Oaks Village is a foster group home for children who have been removed from their homes by the State of Florida. It serves children and teens with nowhere else to go. The majority of its residents have been abused or neglected.Dr. Tracy Salem, Manager of Youth and Family Services for Orange County, couldn’t be happier.“We are so appreciative of this donation and our wonderful partnership with Orange County Corrections. The campus will get great use out of the new furniture,” Salem said.Alex Amarante, one of the inmates who helped build the donations, said he was touched to be able to contribute to such a meaningful cause.“Never get tired of doing little things for others,” Amarante said. “Sometimes those little things can have the biggest impact on someone else’s life.”Each graduating construction class completes a give-back project to donate to a local cause.“In the construction program, inmate workers learn new skills while they give back to the community in a positive way,” said Chief of Orange County Corrections Louis A. Quiñones, Jr.The agency also recently sponsored several seats on the bus for students participating in the YMCA’s Teen Achievers Annual Spring College Tour for 2019. Chief Quiñones said the Corrections Department has been a longstanding supporter of the Teen Achievers Program to propel students toward success and to keep them from getting involved in the criminal justice system.The Orange County Corrections Department has also put together a team for the Upcoming NAMIWalks at Crane’s Roost Park in Altamonte Springs on Saturday, April 27. NAMIWalks events bring together people of all ages to combat stigma, raise funds and promote awareness of mental illness. Since nearly 40 percent of inmates have some sort of mental health issue, the cause is near and dear to the Corrections Department. Visit the team’s online page to participate or support the effort.Deputy County Administrator of Public Safety Danny Banks is pleased with and supportive of such efforts.“A culture of giving back is not only one of the most inspiring ways to engage staff, but it also offers Orange County employees the chance to stay connected to and respond to the needs of the community,” Banks said.

South Africa beat Australia in Cup Final to win Dubai Sevens 2014

first_imgSaturday Dec 6, 2014 South Africa beat Australia in Cup Final to win Dubai Sevens 2014 South Africa climbed to second spot on the overall HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series table after a powerful display in the knockout stages of the Dubai Sevens, where they beat both New Zealand (28-0) and Australia (33-7) on the way to the title. Following a fourth place showing at the Gold Coast in October, they are now just two points behind Fiji, who lead the standings on 39 points ahead of the next round in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.They conceded just seven points on Day Two, while scoring 101 with victories over Argentina (40-0), series champions New Zealand, and finalists Australia.The Australian side beat Fiji in extra-time of a thrilling semi final, and despite having an early intercept chance in the final, they couldn’t keep up with South African’s intensity on defence and at the breakdown, and their lethal finishing out wide.Flyer Seabelo Senatla scored another two tries, following on from his hat-trick against Argentina, while Kwagga Smith showed great heart throughout, and picked up a hat-trick against New Zealand.“We tried to play with variation and the guys really bought into the plan. The players deserve the credit for an outstanding display,” said coach Neil Powell. “We are not the biggest team on the circuit, but we are very physical and don’t stand back for any team in the tackle. Our form at the breakdown area was very good and we really took our scoring opportunities well,” he added.Pool Draw for next legThe 16 teams now fly to South Africa for Round 3 in Port Elizabeth. The Pool draw was made earlier, so Dubai champions South Africa will face Wales, USA and Kenya in Pool A, while Argentina, Portugal and the non-core side Zimbabwe await Dubai runners-up Australia in Pool B.Series leaders Fiji play Scotland, France and Canada in Pool C, with Pool D incredibly tough as Japan join Samoa, England and New Zealand. Log after two rounds:1. Fiji 39 points | 2. South Africa 37 | 3. Australia 28 |  4. New Zealand 28 | 5. Samoa 27Below are highlights from Day Two, featuring the knockout stages.

One viewer had contacted the ASA, arguing that a one-minute Plan advert was misleading because it gave the impression that sponsors could pay for an individual child’s health and education. This is the first complaint that the charity has ever received about its portrayal of child sponsorship.The ASA council ruled that it was clear that the sponsor funds were pooled for use on community projects benefiting every local child, rather than an individual child alone.The advert, voiced by actor Timothy Spall, has been seen 62 million times on networks including E4, More4, Sky News, regional stations of Channel 4, ITV and Five, and digital stations such as Living, Watch, and Virgin 1. Plan UK argue that it made it clear that donated money went towards “children and communities”.Leigh Daynes, Plan UK’s Director of Communications said: ““We make a point of explicitly explaining that while you sponsor an individual child your money goes to that child’s country where it is spent on grassroots projects. It’s impossible to build schools and health clinics if the money goes directly to a single child so your money helps many children, not just one”.He added that Plan was in talks with the Fundraising Standards Board and the Institute of Fundraising to produce an industry-wide charter clearly defining “child sponsorship”, in partnership with other charities.The public donate £25 million-a-year to Plan through sponsorship.www.plan-uk.orglast_img read more

I didn’t agree with a lot of his decisions, but I think it will be nice to get his view and get some inside information on why he made those decisions.”The conference is good exposure for business students, said junior Larry Perrin.“It says a lot about what Neeley is doing, moving forward, and how it is moving up in the ranks of business schools around the country” he said.Students on campus said they ran into the former president.“We saw some people in suits, we were joking ‘is that Secret Service, who are these people?’” said sophomore Chandler Lotridge.

Youth detained in Morocco for making online threats against French philosophy teacher

first_imgNews FranceEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders today hailed the news that a young Moroccan has been detained in Rabat on suspicion of making online death threats against French philosophy teacher Robert Redeker over an op-ed piece about Islamism that Redeker wrote for the 19 September issue of Le Figaro.“This arrest sends a clear message that death threats cannot be made with impunity in France and we therefore welcome it,” the press freedom organisation said. “No one should be threatened for publicly expressing their views.”Adil al-Hyanne, also known as Omar al-Batar, was arrested in Libya and expelled to Morocco, where he has been detained since 19 December at Salé prison in Rabat. He has reportedly admitted being the author of the threats against Redeker. The French police may provide the Moroccan authorities with evidence so that he can be tried in Rabat.Redeker, 52, was placed under police protection in an undisclosed location after receiving e-mail death threats over his op-ed piece, entitled “What the free world should do in the face of Islamist intimidation.” A suspect was arrested on 17 October, but was released the next day.In an interview published today in the Dépêche du Midi newspaper, Redeker said French education minister Gilles de Robien should make amends for suggesting that Redeker should have been more prudent. When expressing support for Redeker on 28 September, De Robien said, “a state employee should be prudent and moderate in all circumstances.”Read another press release on this topic January 10, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Youth detained in Morocco for making online threats against French philosophy teacher News News Follow the news on France RSF_en to go further Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information center_img May 10, 2021 Find out more “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says June 2, 2021 Find out more June 4, 2021 Find out more Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU Organisation News RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story FranceEurope – Central Asia last_img read more
