Kyle and I will be sorting through the 20 most important people leading up to the 2015 season every day until the Central Michigan game which, as you know, is just 13 days away.Porter: I’ve already written extensively about why I’ve fallen in love with J.W. Walsh in his final year, but it’s hard to overstate how important a really good backup is to a program like Oklahoma State. It’s a competitive advantage schools like Oklahoma State aren’t usually afforded — a backup QB who could probably start for half the teams in the league.You could talk me into Walsh being much, much higher than No. 13. If OSU loses Mason Rudolph, they’re in trouble, but not the sort of trouble most teams would be in if they lost QB1. If it loses both Rudolph and Walsh, they’re screwed.AdChoices广告Boone: The Cowboy back could secretly be the X-factor to success this season, and Jeremy Seaton will lead the way for the newfound skill group. He has the body of a fullback and hands of a tight end. His unique size and skills will create match-up problems and force the defense to account for him, regardless of where he lines up. He has flown way below the radar this offseason, but he is one of the most important players for McEndoo and his new crew.No. 14 (Porter: Peterson | Boone: Crabtree)No. 15 (Porter: Washington | Boone: Jacobs)No. 16 (Porter: Stern | Boone: Salako)No. 17 (Porter: Childs | Boone: Sterns)No. 18 (Porter: Sheperd | Boone: Maile)No. 19 (Porter: McEndoo | Boone: Walsh)No. 20 (Porter: Jacobs | Boone: Lampkin) While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Nova Scotians and visitors will be able to mark the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking in a unique Atlantic Canadian way. “As Atlantic Canadians, it’s part of our culture to lend a hand and help recognize the important moments in our history,” said David Wilson, Minister of Communities, Culture and Heritage. “We encourage everyone to participate in the free, public events to commemorate the anniversary.” Canadian icon Gordon Pinsent will host Titanic Eve – Night of the Bells on Saturday, April 14, at 9:30 p.m. in the Grand Parade, Halifax. Known for his recent roles in the films Away from Her and The Shipping News and the television show Republic of Doyle, Mr. Pinsent grew up in Grand Falls, N.L., and became an officer of the Order of Canada in 1979. He was promoted to companion of the Order of Canada in 1998. The Marconi Company wireless station at Cape Race, in Mr. Pinsent’s home province of Newfoundland, received wireless messages from the Titanic and helped relay messages during the sinking and rescue efforts. Twenty-one performers and musical groups, including Laura Smith, Lennie Gallant, John Gracie, the Stadacona Band of the Maritime Forces Atlantic and the Nova Scotia Mass Choir, will perform at the event. A moment of silence will be held at 12:27 a.m., marking the time recorded when the last wireless messages from the Titanic were received. The Cape Race wireless station logged message times in Eastern Standard Time, an hour earlier than Atlantic time. Flares will be set off to symbolize the ship’s call for help. The timing of the event has been changed to more accurately reflect the Log of RMS Titanic Wireless Messages. George Jordan, actor, narrator, broadcaster and program producer, will host The Gathering on April 14, at 7:30 p.m., at the waterfront side of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax. People will gather at that site before starting a walking, candle-lit procession to the Grand Parade to join the Titanic Eve – Night of the Bells event. From the museum, the procession will move along Lower Water Street, left onto George, left onto Hollis, right onto Prince, right onto Argyle and into the Grand Parade. Dave MacIsaac, Louis Benoit, the Camerata Xara Young Women’s Choir and the RCMP Pipes and Drum band will perform at the Titanic Spiritual Ceremony on Sunday, April 15, at 3 p.m. at the Fairview Lawn Cemetery, Halifax. Members of the Canadian Coast Guard will also attend. “All of the performers have really come together to mark the occasion,” said Ken Pinto, executive director, Titanic 100. “We extend our thanks to them and we look forward to hosting a series of memorable events in April.” A Canadian sugar maple tree will be planted at the cemetery as part of the interfaith memorial service. The tree symbolizes Nova Scotia and Canada’s role in the tragedy. The Canadian sugar maple leaf is the same leaf that appears on the Canadian flag.

Los Angeles: Filmmaker James Wan has shared few details of his next directorial venture, saying that he is planning to return to his “indie roots”. In an Instagram post, the 42-year-old director said the new project is a “hard-R thriller” and based on an “original horror idea”. “There’s been a bit of speculation as to what my next project is… All I’ll say is, I’m super excited to go back to my indie roots with this hard-R thriller. An original horror idea (not a reboot/remake or anything based on existing IP) with old school, practical effects and no giant, blue screen sets,” Wan wrote. The filmmaker, who made a name for himself with “The Conjuring” and “Saw” franchises, took a turn towards mainstream blockbusters with films like “Fast and Furious 7” and “Aquaman” in the last couple of years. He is currently scouting for locations for his yet-to-be-titled project.

MONTREAL — National Bank beat expectations as a strong performance across its business contributed to record adjusted profits in the quarter.[np_storybar title=”Canadian banks are a bargain — but it won’t last ” link=”https://business.financialpost.com/2013/08/26/high-shorting-is-keep-canadian-bank-stocks-cheap/”%5DA new analysis by Scotia Capital has found that Canadian bank stocks are notably cheap compared to their Australian peers and Canadian life insurance companies. Keep reading. [/np_storybar]The bank reported Wednesday that it earned $419 million or $2.39 per diluted share in net income in the latest period, up from $379 million or $2.14 in the same period last year.Revenue rose 5% to $1.29 billion from $1.22 billion.Excluding one-items, the bank earned a record $391 million or $2.22 per diluted share, up 11% from $353 million or $1.98 per share in the same 2012 period.National Bank (TSX:NA) was expected to earn $2.06 per share in adjusted profits on $1.3 billion in revenues in the third quarter, according to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters.“Our credit quality and financial strength remain excellent, and our Pan-Canadian growth strategy has paid off with strong performance in the wealth management and financial markets segments,” president and CEO Louis Vachon said in releasing the bank’s earnings report“Furthermore, the bank continues to seek out opportunities, as was the case for the acquisition of TD Waterhouse Institutional Services announced on Aug. 1,” he added.Analyst John Aiken of Barclays called the results “very impressive” and enough to get the country’s six-largest bank some respect.“We would characterize National’s results as a very strong quarter,” he wrote in a report.The bank benefited from strong trading revenues, but the results were “arguably better” than what Bank of Montreal (TSX:BMO) and Scotiabank (TSX:BNS) posted on Monday, Aiken said.“Even if one does not give National Bank a full credit for trading, which the market rarely does, the results still came in well ahead of expectations. We note that National is trading at the lowest multiple of the group and should finally get some respect with these earnings.”Quebec’s largest bank maintained its dividend at 87 cents per share, but Aiken said a hike is likely next quarter based on the strength of the bank’s results.National Bank’s personal and commercial segment’s adjusted income rose 2% to $192 million due in part to an $8 million increase in net interest income caused by a growth in personal loans.The bank’s wealth management business earned $52 million, up from $39 million a year earlier. Revenues grew 8% due to higher deposit volumes and increased fee-based revenues resulting from a growth in assets under administration and under management.The financial markets segment earned $158 million, up from $111 million in the same quarter of 2012. Revenues, on a taxable equivalent basis, grew to $382 million from $322 million due to increases in all types of trading activities revenues.National Bank said its Tier 1 capital ratio was 8.6%, up from 7.3% as of Oct. 31, 2012. Return on equity was 21.9%, or 20.3% excluding one-time items.Earlier this month, it signed a deal to pay $250 million for TD Waterhouse Institutional Services, which provides back-office and support solutions for portfolio managers and brokers across the country.The agreement, which is expected to close later this year, is subject to regulatory approvals and other conditions.The bank said the acquisition will help it increase its payout of recurring earnings per share by 12 cents in 2014, and 14 cents the year after.National Bank is the third large Canadian bank to report this week. Scotiabank (TSX:BNS) and Bank of Montreal (TSX:BMO) both reported Tuesday. Royal Bank (TSX:RY), Toronto-Dominion (TSX:TD) and CIBC (TSX:CM) report on Thursday.
At a glittering ceremony yesterday in Dubai, the Executive Director of the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT), Anna Tibaijuka, presented this year’s joint UN-HABITAT and Dubai International Award for Best Practices to Improve the Living Environment.A $30,000 cash prize, trophy and commemorative certificate were presented to the two representatives from each of the 10 winning practices, which were recognized for their work in improving living conditions on a sustainable basis.Among the honourees were the Urban Agriculture Programme of Argentina; the Tomorrow’s Seeds Human Development and Urban Poverty Reduction programme in Brazil; the First Nations Community Planning project of Canada; the Brownfield Remediation of the Tangshan Southern Coal Mining Area in China; and the Green path to Sustainable Development of Marginal Drylands in Iran.The other winners were the Sand Dams of Kitui: Providing Potable and Production Water in Semi-Arid Lands of Kitui District of Kenya; the IT4YOUTH computer literacy programme for young Palestinians; the Alba-Ter Consortium of the River Ter Basin of Spain; the Business and Competence Development: Working to reduce poverty, unemployment and hardship in Togo and a Poverty Reduction Programme for women in Uzbekistan.Later this year the Best Practices Award is planning to organize an International Conference on Lessons learned from Best Practices contributing toward the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a set of anti-poverty targets to be reached by 2015.Each of the 48 winning practices since the inception of the award will be invited to Dubai to present their experience, including challenges, innovative strategies and transfer of the process.
The International Committee for Support to the Transition, known by its French acronym CIAT, noted that on Tuesday representatives of the two candidates, President Joseph Kabila and Vice-President Jean-Pierre Bemba, signed their third agreement on the conduct of the campaign since violence in Kinshasa, the capital, in August. “CIAT expresses its hope, that before the elections, both sides reach a formal agreement on measures of confidence-building measures for the post-electoral period,” the Committee said in a communiqué issued yesterday, citing Tuesday’s agreement to renounce all forms of violence and intimidation.“However, CIAT must express its deep concern over a series of violent incidents in DRC which have marred the first week of the electoral campaign, notably at Lubumbashi, Basankusu, Lodja and Mbandaka, which are in flagrant violation of the accord the parties have just signed,” it added.The CIAT is composed of the five permanent members of the Security Council (China, USA, France, Great Britain and Russia), Belgium, Canada, South Africa, Angola, Gabon, Zambia, the European Union (Commission and Presidency), the African Union (Commission and Presidency) and the UN Mission in the DRC (MONUC).The 29 October run-off is the final stage of the largest and most complex elections the UN has ever helped organize and is aimed at cementing the vast country’s transition from a six-year civil war, which officially ended in 1999 and cost 4 million lives through fighting and attendant hunger and disease, widely considered the most lethal fighting in the world since World War II.Since then factional fighting has continued in the country’s east, killing and displacing tens of thousands more. The vote is the culmination of a process that began at the end of July with the first round of presidential and legislative elections, the first free polls in 45 years in the DRC.
We would very much have recommended and I very much believe that public health nurses should be part of the agency. However we looked at a number of areas and we felt that we needed to do this in a stepped approach. I would hope that in the agency we would have access to the quantum of public health nurses that we require and I think we will be keeping that in review.“In time if we say ‘the agency needs its own public health services’ we will look to that but I am very conscious of the public finances and the other responsibilities that public health nurses have,” she added.When questioned about Ward’s concerns about social workers on maternity leave not being replaced, Gibbons responded that, at present, provisions are not in place for this but said that the agency has just been established.Child protection and welfare services previously with HSE as well as family resources centres the national education welfare board will be transferred to a new agency and Gibbons explains that this interaction makes sense.“The state never face just one difficulty, it’s often a combination of things and we think having these three together plus our colleagues in the community and voluntary sector we’re well placed,” she said.Read: State agency for children to be debated by Oireachtas >Read: Silent protest outside Dáil today over childrens’ cochlear implants funding > THE CHAIR OF the new Child and Family Agency has said that they will review staffing resources in the face of charges that it is not being given enough staff.The agency officially came into force yesterday and is the largest public body in the sate comprising 4,000 staff and an operational budget of approximately €600m.The Children’s Rights Alliance has welcomed the establishment of the agency but its chief executive Tanya Ward said that a number of issues needed to be “ironed out”.“These include the carry-over of a deficit from the HSE into the new agency, ” she explains. “We are also concerned that social workers who are the backbone of the child protection system are not being replaced when they go on maternity leave, placing even greater pressure on an already stressed system.”Worries have also been raised that public health nurses and child psychologists are not being brought into the remit of the new agency.But speaking, today on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland programme, the Child and Family Agency’s chairperson Norah Gibbons says that these issues will be looked at :
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) – A Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy has developed a special connection with one of the injured victims of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.A photo shows the very moment BSO deputy Brenda Louis prayed at the bedside of 15-year-old Kyle Laman, who had just come out of surgery.“It was so much sadness. You can feel it in the atmosphere,” Louis said.Laman was shot in the leg but escaped with his life from Stoneman Douglas High School.“We were all impacted by this tragedy,” she said.As a mother, the situation was tough on Louis.“Just seeing him lying there, it was just kept getting a reminder that could’ve been my son,” Louis said. She became overwhelmed with emotion, but she said her faith came through.“I actually kept hearing a voice that you need to pray, I just kept hearing that voice,” Louis said.Louis complied, and for 10 minutes straight, she said she prayed for strength, healing and better days.“I didn’t even know there was a picture taken of me,” she said.Though thousands have since viewed the candid photo, the private moment, is one the pair will share for a lifetime.“I think we are gonna be connected forever,” she said.Laman was asleep when the photo was taken last week — so the two didn’t get to talk. However, Louis has since returned to the hospital so they could formally meet and speak. Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

[embedded content]The U.S. Supreme Court is preparing to issue a ruling in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, a case involving a business asking the Court for a Constitutional right to refuse service to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. The central issue in this case is about public accommodations—places of business, public transit, taxi cabs, restaurants—and whether or not they can turn customers away just because of who they are or whom they love.

Please share this post with your friends and family. Latest posts by Mark Snyder (see all) Half of LGBT people live in states lacking nondiscrimination protections for public accommodations despite broad public and business support for such protections. A 2017 PRRI poll found that 72% of Americans support laws that protect LGBT from discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations, and a 2017 Small Business Majority poll found that 65% of business owners are opposed to businesses being permitted to deny service to LGBT people because of religious beliefs.“We need protections from discrimination in the places we frequent in our everyday lives–from our morning coffee shop to our bus ride home, from a quick trip to the restroom at the mall to the annual trip to the DMV–because when LGBTQ people are able to live full lives and provide for themselves and their families, free from discrimination, our communities are stronger,” said Fran Hutchins, Equality Federation Institute deputy director.“Securing comprehensive public accommodations protections is a critical component of winning full LGBTQ equality in America,” said Masen Davis, CEO of Freedom for All Americans, the campaign to secure LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections nationwide. “Passing laws that prohibit discrimination in public places because of who they are, or who they love, allows LGBTQ people to go about their daily lives with comfort and security, and to be their most authentic selves. Like anyone else, LGBTQ people must access places of public accommodation—such as shopping malls, restaurants, hotels, and doctors’ offices—to take care of themselves and their loved ones. This important resource demonstrates what’s at stake when cities and states permit discrimination at the most fundamental level.”“Most people take for granted that they can use the same businesses and services as other people without fear of being turned away or mistreated for who they are, whether for day-to-day needs like going to the store, or for life-saving services like accessing a domestic violence shelter. For many transgender people, however, these kinds of public accommodations can be sites of routine discrimination, humiliation, and even violence. Those high rates of discrimination—including denial of treatment, harassment, and physical assault—were reflected in 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey, a study of nearly 28,000 transgender adults. When places of public accommodation are free to discriminate against transgender people, entire transgender communities are given a clear and painful message that they are not welcome to take part in public life. LGBT Policy Spotlight: Public Accommodations Nondiscrimination Laws highlights the real dangers of anti-LGBTQ discrimination in public accommodations, and the real need for laws that protect everyone from mistreatment in these settings.”The following two tabs change content below. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Equality Federation is proud to partner with the Movement Advancement Project (MAP) for the launch a new report, LGBT Policy Spotlight: Public Accommodations Nondiscrimination Laws, that provides a comprehensive overview of the patchwork of federal, state, and local protections against discrimination in public spaces. The report is released in partnership with the Equality Federation Institute, Freedom for All Americans, and the National Center for Transgender Equality.To accompany the report, MAP’s latest ad, “Movie Theater,” depicts how transgender people can experience harassment, discrimination and denial of equal treatment in places of public accommodation. View the ad at http://www.lgbtmap.org/Movie-Theater-ad.“This report highlights what is at stake in our courts, at the ballot, and in our legislatures: basic human dignity. The very ability of LGBT people to be in public and participate fully in everyday life is under coordinated attack,” said Ineke Mushovic, MAP executive director. “From bathroom bans to ballot measures aimed at stripping away nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people, it’s shameful that we are still debating whether it should be legal to discriminate against someone or turn them away from a business simply because of who they are.”The report finds that discrimination facing LGBT people is pervasive. A 2016 Center for American Progress survey found that one in four LGBT respondents experienced discrimination because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. The 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey found that in the past year alone, out of respondents who visited a place of public accommodation where staff thought they were transgender, 31% were denied equal treatment, harassed, or physically assaulted because of being transgender.The report also highlights the gaps in protections that leave LGBT people vulnerable to discrimination. Nineteen states and Washington D.C. have laws protecting people from discrimination in public accommodations based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and sex, leaving LGBT people in 31 states at risk for legal discrimination. A new survey of city and county policies finds that at least 313 cities and counties have local nondiscrimination ordinances prohibiting discrimination in public accommodations based on sexual orientation, including 280 that also prohibit discrimination based on gender identity. Currently, no federal law prohibits discrimination in public accommodations based on sexual orientation or gender identity. MAP’s Equality Maps track federal, state, and local laws and policies: http://www.lgbtmap.org/equalitymapsHigh rates of discrimination against LGBT people are not surprising given the increase in coordinated attacks on the ability of LGBT people to live their lives in public. The report details four distinct strategies:Bathroom bans that would limit transgender people’s access to restrooms such as North Carolina’s bill HB2, and Texas’s bill SB6;Ballot measures to repeal nondiscrimination protections including in Anchorage in April and Massachusetts in November;State preemption of cities and counties prohibiting them from enacting local ordinances; and,Efforts to create religious exemptions to nondiscrimination laws.Despite these efforts, several states, including New Hampshire and Wisconsin, are considering legislation to expand nondiscrimination protections to include transgender people, and cities in many states are working to pass local ordinances that would protect LGBT people in public spaces.
