DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your name here The Apopka Faith, Family & Food Gospel Festival slated for January 7thA month ago, the idea of a City-funded Gospel Fest was turned down by the Apopka City Council at their October 5th meeting. The proposed date of November 12th date concerned the commissioners who believed the event would be too rushed.Two weeks later, The Apopka Christian Ministerial Alliance and The South Apopka Ministerial Alliance resurrected the idea under a new name – The Apopka Faith, Family & Food Gospel Festival.According to Pastor Hezekiah Bradford, President of both Alliances, the two groups applied for a permit for the Festival on Wednesday, October 19th afternoon for the event scheduled to he held on January 7th, 2017.  The application is on the agenda for tomorrow’s 9:00 AM Development Review Committee meeting.The groups are holding a planning meeting for the event today at Noon at Word of Life Church. Pastor Bradford and Pastor Richard King sent out an email yesterday with the following invitation:“Please be advised that in the spirit of inclusion, we are inviting all faith leaders, community leaders and concerned citizens to provide input during the gospel planning meeting. Pastor Morgan has been gracious in providing the use of his church for this meeting which will take place tomorrow November 1st. at noon sharp, we have planned for a 90-minute meeting, however, as everyone can see based on the attached document, we plan on being out early in respect of everyone’s time. Once again, this is intended to be a community event, one that we all can take personal pride and ownership of, so we encourage your participation over lunch. We are still inviting community leadership to sit on the Organizing Gospel Planning Committee, so if you are interested, please respond to this e-mail and we will incorporate your leadership in the planning process and documents.”“This is not a city project,” said Bradford at the October 19th City Council meeting. “It should be a community project… and let me take it a little further… I think the government should be run by the people and not vice versa. I think you should involve people into the program.” Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 You have entered an incorrect email address!

Tel Aviv House / Pitsou Kedem Architects

first_imgPhotographs:  Amit Geron Lighting Design:Orly Avron AlkabesStyling For Photography:Eti BuskilaArchitect In Charge:Noa GromanDesign Team:Pitsou Kedem, Noa GromanCity:Tel Aviv-YafoCountry:IsraelMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Amit GeronText description provided by the architects. Visitors to the Old North of Tel Aviv would be surprised should they stumble upon a small neighborhood of low-lying family homes possessing just one or two storeys each. These are the remaining relics of Israel’s early urbanism when the English garden city motif populated many of her towns.Save this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!© Amit GeronIt incorporated a rural aesthetic of red-tiled roofs, low construction and spacious, generous gardens – some buildings were constructed by the Ministry of Housing and others were enthusiastically encouraged by it. Their first inhabitants were often new immigrants and many were soon purchased by elites who saw in them the promise of comfortable lives and peaceful surroundings within an ever-growing city.Save this picture!© Amit GeronIn the march of time, some were abandoned, neglected, and then rediscovered and renewed. Dense cities developed rapidly and intensively around them causing a sharp desire for these oases of comfortable family homes. Some remained unaltered – modest homes through which waft the romantic scents of their history. Others have been adapted to reflect the modern tastes and desired proportions of their current owners.Save this picture!© Amit GeronUnique is the advent of contiguously built homes – built from the start as linked units with a continuous appearance. Siamese twins bound together by visual and constructive obligations. Their development requires consideration and adjustment. Their environment seeks to preserve their values – their culture and history.Save this picture!© Amit GeronAt first glance the clean, bright facade of the house seems alien against the background of the neighborhood. Emphasizing its difference is the additional height of the home and its long, horizontal windows, hidden behind white iron lattice-work. These are in conversation, as it were, with the early international-style homes built in Tel Aviv, some of which displayed similar lattice-work that emulated freedom of form – rendered by indecipherable spatial division.Save this picture!© Amit GeronViewing the home from the side reveals the preservation of the original slanted roof with its distinct romantic character. Now, however, the roof appears to be resting on the surrounding walls rendering its appearance so subtle it may even be missed. The end result of the side facade is an homage to the image of the “village home”.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!SectionA passage runs from the street straight through the entrance into the inner areas – exterior and interior – past and future – a home of modern proportions. The rear facade reveals a large, vitrine window unifying the home to the yard and pool. The passage through the storeys of inner rooms is formed by a floating bridge crossed by a staircase leading up to the roof.  There the bleached wood eaves stand out against the wall thinly coated with black cement, as if acquainting the architectural motifs of new and old, identity and exactitude that permeate the structure. Hence – inside and outside – two worlds – two cultural tales are intertwined within the existence of the structure, permitting its existence, breathing into it completely new life.Save this picture!© Amit GeronProject gallerySee allShow less3+2 Social Housing / Antonio Holgado GómezSelected ProjectsGym Enoseis / ENO ArchitectesSelected Projects Share “COPY” Architects: Pitsou Kedem Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs CopyAbout this officePitsou Kedem ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTel Aviv-YafoIsraelPublished on June 02, 2016Cite: “Tel Aviv House / Pitsou Kedem Architects ” 02 Jun 2016.

The Foundation has had a number of ‘restricted’ grant recipients but the accounts for last year show that restricted donations are down from €972,000 in 2015 to under €200,000 in 2016.In notes to the accounts Mr O’Brien makes a continued commitment to existing projects worth €2 million.The Foundation, set up in 2000, has continued the practice of splitting its giving between local and overseas charities. In 2016 €2.3 million was given overseas and €3 million to domestic causes. This is roughly the same ratio as in the previous year.The Foundation, which shares an address with Mr O’Brien’s headquarters in Ireland at Grand Canal Quay, has very low overheads which in 2016 totalled just €5,400.O’Brien set up the Foundation, named after his mother, in 2000 to identify and assist projects in Ireland and internationally and support disadvantaged communities. The foundation promotes human rights, helps people affected by disasters, supports people with a mental or physical disability, educational causes and promotes art. Mr O’Brien is also patron of the Digicel Foundation, which was started in 2004 to support projects in Jamaica, Haiti and Papua New Guinea. Between April 2016 and June 2016, O’Brien and Digicel donated between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation to support its mission, something which drew criticism from the Trump campaign during the American presidential election.  415 total views,  1 views todaylast_img read more

New tax scam shifts more wealth to wealthy

first_imgContrary to the lie that the Republicans are proposing populist relief for all taxpayers, an honest analysis of the proposed tax legislation reveals that the super-rich would get the greatest benefits and many U.S. workers would see their taxes increase over the long term.On top of this, since reduced taxes would increase budget deficits, there is little doubt that all poor people and workers, who are the creators of all wealth, would lose through cutbacks and austerity measures.The Urban Institute and Brookings Institution’s Tax Policy Center report provides the following data:In 2019, taxpayers would see their taxes cut by $1,300 on average, an increase in take-home pay of 1.7 percent. The 20 percent of income earners in the middle — $50,000 to $87,000 a year — would get an average tax cut of $850. But the “average” increase distorts the truth. Those who receive the top 1 percent of incomes — that is, those who get more than $750,000 a year — would see an average cut of $34,130.In 2027, when the tax bill’s provisions terminate, the proposed sunset of individual tax cuts, combined with other changes to the code, means benefits would be substantially less for middle-income people. The average cut for all would be just $300, and 50.3 percent of households would actually see their taxes increase at this point. Those in the middle would see an average tax cut of just $50, and 65.6 percent of this group would pay higher taxes. The top 1 percent, however, would still get an average tax cut of $32,510. (Business Insider, Nov. 23)Taxes fund the state: For whose benefit?The money collected in taxes, mostly from workers’ paychecks, funds the state apparatus.When Marxists speak of the state it is not in reference to the state of New York, Ohio or California. They mean the repressive arms of the government — army, police, jails — that protect the property and interests of the rich and repress the working class. It’s the state that stops poor people in rebellion from emptying a supermarket to feed their families.“The state, simply, as the repressive apparatus of the government — the courts, the prisons, the police, and the military — stands to maintain the social relations as they are, to protect the owning and possessing few from the exploited and oppressed masses,” as explained in the pamphlet “What Is Marxism All About.” (tinyurl.com/yd56da7h)Most workers would go along with pooling our money to pay for subsidized housing, education, health care, good food, transportation, care for children, the elderly and disabled, and meeting human needs.But in the capitalist U.S. most of the money taxed from workers’ pay goes to expand U.S. corporate interests through war and the military-industrial complex. Trump’s $1.1 trillion budget outline for 2018 proposes a $54 billion increase in military spending.This 10 percent boost for the military is paid for by deep cuts to nonmilitary spending at the State Department, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Environmental Protection Agency and dozens of federal programs that either protect consumers or provide benefits to low-income people.While this outrageous giveaway to the rich may be stopped or modified in the following weeks, it is becoming clear that only by building a mass people’s movement to fight the cutbacks and demanding the rewards of their own labor can workers begin to create an economic system that puts people over profit.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

You do that now and you’ll wake up in heaven.”Charlie Terry gave the college students advice for a long, happy life.“Love the Lord and love Jesus,” he said. “I’m 93 years old and I’m planning to live 15 more years. I don’t know the Lord’s plan though.”Hassie Green, Center director, challenged the students to prepare themselves now to be active and happy senior adults.“When you get to be seniors, don’t sit in front of the television watching soap operas and crying over somebody’s troubles,” she said. “Get up and get out and enjoy life and you’ll find that your senior years are happy ones and eventful ones.” Print Article The classmates interviewed the senior adults several times and have had opportunities to participate with them on a more social level.Dr. Amanda Diggs, instructor, said the students “loved’ spending time with the senior adults.“They said that they would like to have more access to the wisdom of these wonderful senior adults,” she said.
