BREAKING NEWS: Donnelly Votes Against Biggest Tax Cut in Decades Issues Statement Following Tax…

first_imgIssues Statement Following Tax Cut VoteINDIANAPOLIS (Wednesday, Dec. 20, 2017) — Luke Messer issued the below statement following Senator Joe Donnelly’s vote against President Trump’s historic tax cut plan.“Hoosiers deserve a pay raise. But, Senator Donnelly voted against Indiana’s working families when he opposed President Trump’s tax cut plan,” Messer said. “Senator Donnelly says he works for Indiana, but time and again, he votes with Washington liberals to block the President’s agenda. Thankfully, tax cuts will pass without Senator Donnelly’s help, but Hoosiers deserve better.”Messer voted yesterday in support of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in the House. Because of obstructionist tactics by Democrats in the Senate, the House will have to vote again today on the legislation. Messer has consistently urged Donnelly to support the President’s plan and give Hoosiers a tax cut. Donnelly feigned bipartisan interest in working with the President on this tax plan for months.In addition to his vote against the tax cut plan, Senator Donnelly also cast the deciding vote 51-49 against the President’s plan to repeal Obamacare. Luke Messer is a family man and conservative who’s fighting for President Trump’s agenda and believes America’s future can be even better than its past. The U.S. Senate is broken. We can do better.

Hartley Jewelers Appointed Official Jeweler of The Miss Washington Pageant

first_imgFacebook24Tweet0Pin0Hartley Jewelers of Olympia, Washington, has been selected to be the official jeweler of the prestigious Miss Washington Pageant. To celebrate and mark the occasion, Hartley Jewelers is designing the official Miss Washington ring, which will be awarded to the pageant winner for the first time this year.“Since we started our business in 1967, we have always had a passion for community involvement. Each year we are pleased to donate a gold and diamond crown pendant designed especially for the new Miss Washington. We are thrilled to have been asked to design the official Miss Washington ring, and – needless to say – we are honored to also have been appointed the official jeweler of The Miss Washington Pageant”, says Rick Hartley, founder of Hartley Jewelers.The official Miss Washington ring is being created entirely by hand from sketch to finished piece (a process you can watch here). Several series of sketches were drawn, then narrowed down to styles that celebrate the regional Miss Washington Pageant, with a ‘W’ elegantly incorporated into the ring. The designs reflect elements of the national Miss America Pageant ring and tiara. There are three final sketches from which the winning design will be chosen during the month of May, 2012. The public can see the sketches and vote on their favorite at Hartley Jewelers’ Facebook pageor by texting “MISSWA” to 22828.Peggy Miller, Executive Director of the Miss Washington Scholarship Organization, is overseeing the design and decision-making process of the new ring. ”We have always been impressed with the craftsmanship and generosity we have encountered at Hartley Jewelers. It seemed only natural to cement this long-standing relationship by appointing Hartley Jewelers official jeweler of The Miss Washington Pageant”, she says. ”We have had a lot of fun designing the new Miss Washington ring in cooperation with the goldsmiths at Hartley’s, and we are really excited to be able to present this beautiful commemorative ring to the pageant winner for the first time this year.”The ring will be presented to the winner of this year’s Miss Washington pageant July 6th and 7th at The Highline Performing Arts Center in Burien, Washington.

AH Reorganization Brings Major Surprise

first_imgBy Muriel J. SmithATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – New Jersey Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno swore in Councilmen Jack Archibald and Peter Doyle to three-year terms on the governing body, but left the meeting immediately following the swearing in to participate in a second reorganization in Shrewsbury. Before apologizing for her hasty retreat from the session, the lieutenant governor spoke briefly on elected officials’ obligation to “do what the people want, not what we as public officials want.”However, the exit of both the lieutenant governor and Freeholder Director Lillian Burry, who also attended the borough’s reorganization meeting, came minutes before Councilman Lou Fligor moved that Councilman Roy Dellosso be named council president. In the absence of higher officials, Mayor Fred Rast swore Dellosso into the position, over the negative votes of both Doyle and Archibald.The move was unusual for both Rast and Fligor, since Dellosso is a Democrat, one of two, with Bob Sutton, on the GOP-controlled governing body. Traditionally and politically, a governing body selects one from its own party to serve in the absence of the mayor. Republicans Jake Hoffman and Fligor voted with Democrats Dellosso and Bob Sutton to move Dellosso into the top seat on council.Fligor declined any comment on his vote for a Democrat for the council president position, but Rast told The Two River Times after the meeting that he endorsed the governing body’s majority vote for the Democrat because “he’s a good man, he’s been on the council the entire time I’ve been mayor, and I think he deserves it.”Peter Doyle is sworn in by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno.–Courtesy Joseph BarbieriDellosso said he was not surprised by the council or mayor’s actions, because “the mayor’s always been about bi-partisanship, and he knows I’ll do my best.” The councilman added that he feels he will be excellent in the position, since he is actively involved in the community and enjoys helping borough residents.More uncertainty about Rast’s dedication to the Republican party that first help elect him to office seven years ago came during the mayor’s annual address to the public at the end of the meeting. He indicated he will not seek another term when his expires this year, but has a candidate in mind. Council makeup this year is no different from every other year since Rast became mayor, with the same elected officials that first served with him in 2008 still on the governing body. Doyle gained his fourth term this year, Archibald his seventh.That a split in the Republican party in this close-knit community is developing was further evidenced when Rast failed to reappoint Archibald to the Harbor Commission, replacing him with Fligor, who will continue in that position with Hoffmann, who was renamed. When asked about that change, Rast indicated he has not been pleased with some of the activities at the harbor and feels Fligor will be able to resolve some issues, but he did not elaborate on what concerns he has.In responding to questions about how he feels in not being reappointed to a third year on commission, Archibald said he’s very disappointed in not being able to continue. “I’ve enjoyed all of my time there, and I believe I have made contributions to the commission that have been beneficial both to the harbor operations and to the taxpayers and businesses of our community.” He added that he is further disappointed that he was not consulted about a replacement for himself, nor asked about any ongoing programs or activities on which the new commission member will need to be brought up to speed.There were few changes in the other mayoral or council appointments, with Bernard Reilly continuing as borough attorney, Christine Hanlon as chief municipal prosecutor, Hank Wolfe as public defender, and Richard Rast as code enforcement officer.  Andrew J. Sabine of the Fallon and Larsen firm will continue as municipal auditor.Rene Frotton, who has served in both Marlboro and Loch Arbor was named tax assessor as Eldo Magnani retired from the position Dec. 31.    The Two River Times was continued as an official newspaper.In his annual address, Rast quoted from the address he gave at his first reorganization in 2008, and noted that many of the same national problems that existed then continue to exist today. “The radicals of the ‘60s have now grown and are elected officials today,” he said, but added that in Atlantic Highlands, “we have remained unchanged by radical 1960s…we respect each together, we work together, we raise our families together…the intermarriages strengthen our community…the police and fireman is role models and we all work together.”Rast added that proof of how the community works well together is the number of accomplishments that have been achieved, in spite of earthquakes, Super Storm Sandy, hurricanes, floods, landslides, and unusual snowfalls which have impacted the borough and the county over the past seven years.last_img read more

The skid continues as Nelson Leafs drops 3-2 decision to Fernie

first_imgThe tailspin continues for the Nelson Leafs.Nolan Lagace scored less than a minute into the third period to snap a 2-2 tie lifting the Fernie Ghostriders to a 3-2 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League victory over the Nelson Leafs Saturday night at the NDCC Arena.The loss is the fifth straight for Nelson, which is slowly falling out of the race for the top of the Murdoch Division after the Beaver Valley Nitehawks won its tenth consecutive game, 3-1 over Kimberley.Nelson trails the Nitehawks by 10 points in Murdoch standings. Beaver Valley defeated the Leafs 3-1 Friday in Nelson.“The last couple of games have been tough because we’ve had so many suspensions and injuries,” said Leaf captain Sawyer Hunt, finishing the game with two assists.“But we’ve got a good team in that (dressing room). So we just need to get back to the rink, have a good week of practice and be ready when we play Castlegar Thursday.”Twice the Leafs rallied from one-goal deficits Saturday.Tyler Abbott beat Ben Kelsch in the Leafs nets to give the Riders a 1-0 lead in the first period.Twelve seconds later, Dale Howell tied the game.Riley Siebel scored early in the second period to regain the lead for Fernie.But Jordan Unger pulled Nelson even on the power play before the period ended. However, in the third the Leafs had no answer after Lagace jammed the puck past Kelsch seconds into the final frame.Despite out shooting the Riders 10-6 in the period, Nelson failed to beat Fernie goalie Brandon Youngson to tie the game and force overtime.Hunt, Howell, David Lenzin and Ryan Piva all had great chances to tie the game.“You’ve got to give their goalie (Brandon Youngson) credit, he played well when we pressured him,” Hunt said.“But it’s tough playing two games like that in two days short handed.”For the third consecutive game the Leafs played minus a handful of players due to suspension and injuries.Saturday Nelson welcomed defenceman Jacob Karran back to the lineup following his two-game sit, but was still missing defenceman Brent Headon, and forwards Jack Karran and Mason Mullaney to suspension.All three players are expected back in the lineup when Nelson faces Castlegar.Nelson finished the game out shooting the Ghostriders 32-23.The Leafs dropped to third place in the Murdoch Division standings, a point behind Grand Forks Border Bruins, with an 8-6-2-0-1 record.The Bruins edged Spokane Braves 5-4 in the Boundary City to leapfrog past Nelson.The Leafs have little time to lick their wounds as the team travels to Castlegar Thursday to face the Rebels. And the Sunflower City squad will not be a pushover despite trailing the Leafs in the standings.Castlegar has won three consecutive games after blasting Columbia Valley Rockies 7-2 Saturday in Invermere.Next home game for Nelson is Saturday, November 26 when the Leafs host Grand Forks.last_img read more

SA to host African Gymnastics Champs

first_img16 January 2014 South Africa’s leading gymnasts will take on the continent’s best when the University of Pretoria hosts the 12th African Gymnastics Championships from 25 March to 4 April. Both men and women will compete in the artistic competition, while the women will also contest the rhythmic disciplines. Much will be expected of Cameron MacKenzie and Kirsten Beckett, who will be at the forefront of the South African team’s challenge.‘A welcome shot in the arm’ After spending a decade abroad, MacKenzie provided South African gymnastics with a welcome shot in the arm when he returned from the United Kingdom in October, having represented Great Britain at junior and senior level. He was a member of the Huntingdon Club, which also produced Olympic medal winners Louis Smith, Daniel Keatings and Sam OldhamAchievements MacKenzie’s list of achievements includes representing Britain at the World School Games in Qatar in 2009 and being part of the Great Britain National Gymnastics squad that won team gold at the Junior European Championships in 2010. That same year he won gold in the Junior Men’s All-Around at the Bumbo Cup in South Africa. More recently, in 2013, MacKenzie placed sixth in the Senior Men’s All-Around at the British Championships in Liverpool.Commonwealth Games places In the South African artistic trials last year, he confirmed his pedigree by finishing first in the all-round competition. After also excelling in the apparatus finals he secured a place in the South African team for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, along with Tiaan Olivier, Kirsten Beckett and Claude Cummings. MacKenzie’s UK coach Paul Hall has been signed up to help with a training plan for the both the South African junior and senior men’s artistic gymnastics teams. Kirsten Beckett Beckett, aged 17, first competed outside of Africa in 2008. Last year, in the International Gymnastics Magazine, John Crumlish wrote: “Beckett’s achievements in 2012 continue the momentum generated by South African teammate [and 2010 Commonwealth Games silver medal winner in the vault] Jennifer Khwela earlier in the Olympic cycle”. In 2013, Beckett was South Africa’s top performer in her first visit to the World Championships. She is ranked ninth on the floor in the latest International Gymnastics Federation world rankings, up from 24th in 2012. She is also ranked 12th on the vault, and 49th on the uneven bars.Revival Gymnastics South Africa is aiming to use the African Championships to help spearhead a revival of the country’s international fortunes, which peaked in 1998 at the Commonwealth Games when Simon Hutcheon won gold in the men’s vault, Christian Brezeanu captured silver in the vault and on the floor, and Athol Myhill won bronze on the rings.Support To show your support for Gymnastics South Africa, visit the 12th African Gymnastics Championships pages on Facebook and Twitter.

Google Seeking Developers to Make Wave-Based Forum

first_imgThe idea has been batted around before, but now it looks like Google is ready to throw some effort in the direction of creating a Google Wave powered forum.According to a post on the Google Wave Developer Blog, the Google Wave team already open-sourced Forum Botty, a Google Wave extension that creates a forum-like experience inside Wave, and now it wants to “continue developing this code base into a powerful and generic extension for running forums in wave, and we’re hoping that other developers like you will join us in this project.”Google Wave is a real-time, collaborative environment that Google made available to the public at the end of May. Despite much hype and anti-hype (where detractors rush to call it dead), it looks like Wave is still very much alive and kicking and looking at some interesting new uses.The post on the developer blog is written by David Crane, an external Wave developer who is involved in the development of the Debatewise extension. With his work on Debatewise, Crane has already used Wave in holding mass discussions, so he already has some experience in the realm of creating a Wave-based forum. Crane writes that Wave is better than a standard forum right from the get-go:Google Wave offers a number of benefits over traditional forum software, with just its native functionality. However, by incorporating some of the tried-and-tested features from forums into a robot, we could turn Google Wave into the ultimate platform for forum-based discussion.A forum could be a killer app for Wave. It’s a tool that people already use in huge numbers for specific purposes, are used to keeping separate to their email, and will dip in and out of as required. Wave is similar enough for them to jump in quickly and different enough for them to get, and be hooked by, the benefits. A forum removes the need for people to find things to use Wave for and means they could use it even if none of their friends did. Wave could enhance and improve upon some of the most important features of a forum and through acclimatisation, will encourage them to use it for a world of other purposes.Crane says that there are three areas in need of developing: a way of organizing waves around subject matter, a method of encouraging participation with rewards and the development of “trust mechanisms so people can determine who to rely upon or ignore”.To this end, he says that they are looking for “Python, Java and Javascript developers, QA testers and anyone with an interest in forum software, community building and online discussion”. The resulting Wave-based forum will be licensed under the same open-source license used for Google Wave, meaning it will be open for others to implement and modify.

Note To BBC: The Future Of Radio Is Not “This Content Is Not Available On Your Device”

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#New Media#web Related Posts For a media organization founded in the 1920s, the British Broadcasting Corporation has done a remarkable job of keeping up with the times. Its iPlayer media app is adored by those fortunate enough to have access to it. This week, the BBC launched an iPlayer spinoff that focuses on radio. It’s a great start, but if you’re eagerly awaiting radio’s future, you might want to hang tight.To be fair, iPlayer Radio is a solid offering. The attractively designed Web app is a focused way to stream live broadcasts from any of the BBC’s many channels. There’s a ton of content here, both live and archived. It’s all broken down by channel, category, schedule and – as you drill down further – topic area, personality, format and music genre. It’s a handy online portal into the BBC’s radio experience, much of which is available to users around the world.Geography is where the concept starts to fizzle. I live in the United States, so there are limitations on what I can hear on iPlayer Radio. For one thing, the iOS apps aren’t available here, so I have no choice but to point my iPhone and iPad browsers to the Web app. To the BBC’s credit, streaming a live broadcast works fairly well, and I can minimize the browser, launch another app and continue to listen uninterrupted. But even in the browser, I’m blocked from streaming certain shows in the archive. Bummer. I don’t know precisely what the future of radio looks like, but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t include the sentence, “This content is not available on your device.”As well designed as the Web app is, it still feels a little fractured. Not all the audio content on iPlayer Radio is funneled to the same pop-up window, for example. Some of it plays natively in the browser tab in which you initiate the stream, while some of it launches a new player in pop-up window. If you’re already streaming from one of those pop-ups and then decide to switch to another channel, iPlayer Radio will fire up another pop-up. In many cases, you end up with concurrent streams of audio, which turn into a cacophonous trainwreck of sound until you manage to find one of the stop buttons. It’s weird.To improve this particular aspect of the user experience, the BBC might want to borrow a page from SoundCloud or Shuffler.fm, both of which feature a single universal audio player that keeps streaming no matter where you navigate and then switches to a new audio stream when you ask for it. Other bastions of radio innovation have good ideas as well – NPR, Stitcher Radio, TuneIn and Pandora come to mind.The BBC might be, as radio futurologist James Cridland put it, a bit late to the party on this, but it’s a valiant effort, on the whole. The BBC has some incredibly high-quality content, often containing deeply valuable, alternative viewpoints. This new initiative helps open it up to a wider global audience. The mobile apps (from what I can tell) look especially well designed, with innovative carousel navigation and an alarm to wake up to the BBC. It’s the mobile experience that has the greatest potential to steer radio’s future, especially as smartphones continue to find a place in cars.It’s worth noting that iPlayer Radio is only the player’s first iteration. The BBC knows that online streaming and mobile technology are going to be a central component of their future. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds.
