The yield on Spain’s 12 and 18-month bills fell as much as 50 basis points compared to auctions in January, a mark of broadly better market sentiment. The Treasury sold €6.2bn of 12- and 18-month T-bills, the high end of its targeted range. The 13-week Greek bill yield fell to 3.85 per cent but the premium demanded by investors on secondary markets to hold Greek over German debt widened to 860 basis points, 26 basis points on the day, as uncertainty continued to plague the southern Eurozone economies struggling most with high debt.

Before we delve into some of the topics that were discussed, I would like to thank and extend my sincere appreciation to the following individuals for making this event possible: Our moderator Attorney Greg Jackson, Esq.; City of Apopka Commissioner Alexander Smith; Mr. John D. Byrnes, D. Hum-hc; our panelists; Orange County staff; Ms. Curtesa Vanderpool and her entire team at Evans High School; Dr. Randy Nelson from Bethune Cookman University; Ms. Sandra Fatmi with the United Foundation of Central Florida, Inc. and Future Leaders United (FLU at Evans High School); the Pine Hills Neighborhood Improvement District (NID); Mr. Rogers Beckett with the South Apopka Safe Neighborhood Partnership; Ms. Lori Erlacher with the Lee Road Safe Neighborhood Partnership; and Mr. Ken Dwyer and his wife Chris Dwyer with the Pine Hills Safe Neighborhood Partnership. Most importantly, I would like to thank all of the attendees who not only came out to the forum but engaged the panelists in asking questions.District 2 Orange County Commissioner Rod LoveTo kick-off the conversation, Mr. John Byrnes, who is with the Center for Aggression Management, gave a presentation on Aggression Management. In his presentation, Mr. Byrnes discussed aggression management techniques to recognize aggressive behavior and to prevent violence by managing aggressive behavior. Mr. Byrnes has been interviewed on workplace violence by most major news outlets and has presented at over 100 conferences dealing with workplace, campus, church or school violence. He received an honorary doctorate of humanities in 2000 for his discovery and development of Aggression Management.Following Mr. Byrnes’ presentation, Attorney Jackson introduced each of the panelists: Pastor Derrick L. McRae, Pastor of the Experience Christian Center (ECC); Chief Bryan Holmes, Senior Director of the Orange County Public Schools District Police (established in 2015); Mrs. Tammie Holt, Founder of Strengthening Our Sons, Inc.; Master Deputy Stanley Murray, a twenty-three year veteran of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office; and Mr. Brandan Louis, a Senior at Evans High School and future CEO for a major fortune five hundred company.The panel discussed various topics, including mentoring for young boys, communication, the difference between what law enforcement has seen on the streets vs. in schools, positive influences, and much more.“Kids come to school to feel safe, to be frank,” said Chief Bryan Holmes. “There is structure. There is food. Evans High School is the school were you can be served breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and there is a pantry. If you don’t know where your next meal is coming from, how are you going to feel better?”Halfway through the panel discussion, at the mention of an “anchor”, I asked Master Deputy Stanley Murray to talk about CompStat, and how it relates to funding being “anchored” in communities that need it for children and family services. Master Deputy Murray described CompStat as being used for identifying crime trends in certain areas and also anticipate where crimes will occur in the future. Through CompStat, law enforcement tries to take statistics to formulate plans to allocate resources to areas of need, many of time getting pushed somewhere else. To help rectify this, law enforcement builds a relationship as well as trust back with the community, where residents are educated on resources available through the Sheriff’s Office.The audience also heard from Mr. Brandan Louis about what is actually happening in schools and the needs of his peers.“I’m big on mentorship. We [young men and boys] need a positive role model and father figure,” said Brandan. “However, we often deny ourselves this need. Men who are willing to be that role model or mentor should actually come out and guide kids in the right way. We need to think about what we can do to raise good kids.”Residents can watch the entire forum on my Facebook page at Orange County District 2 Commissioner.Given the extensive dialogue that took place last week, please know that this is not where the conversations should end. In order to help ensure the safety of our students as well as connect them with mentors in school and in the community, we need to continue to have these conversations with our neighbors, political, faith-based and community leaders, as well as community stakeholders. Let’s talk about it!
Text description provided by the architects. Emerging from behind its high boundary wall, the distorted roof form of Vader House interrupts the symmetrical roof line typical of Fitzroy, and breathes new life into this Victorian Terrace.The extension is a framed steel skeleton which envelopes the unusually high masonry boundary wall built prior to height restrictions, reclaiming it into the interior. The roof then responds to site setbacks which result in a distorted and subverted answer to regulations. This produces high folded internal planes, allowing double height ceilings, a mezzanine level and spacious interior.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsDoorsSolarluxBi-Folding Doors – EcolineWoodHESS TIMBERTimber – GLT HybridWoodBlumer LehmannFree Form Structures for Wood ProjectsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsThe Eastern and Western facades of the extensions are encased in a shield of louvres. These peel back to reveal a folded internal environment of soft colours framed by exposed steel beams. Playfully splashes of deep red enliven the interior which is occasionally punctured by windows allowing a cinematic light to dance over the internal workings of the Vader House.The refined material and colorful palette of the extension, wrapped in a heavy roof form distinguishes itself from the dark masonry clad terrace from which it emerges. These two opposing forms are united by a transparent glass corridor along the Northern boundary wall, framing an outdoor courtyard.Save this picture!Strategic planning located the courtyard at the heart of the site, allowing both the terrace and extension to have direct contact with this outside space. It creates a central demilitarized zone that allows activities from the surrounding living spaces to spill into. This courtyard ensures that the entirety of the site is utilised.Definition between these internal and external environments is barely distinguishable. Transparent bifold doors allow for constant physical and visual interaction, between these environs. The extensions is at once inside and out.Save this picture!The courtyard’s location also provides abundant natural light and ventilation into both the terrace and extension, importantly decreasing reliance on mechanical heating and cooling systems. The open and seemingly simple nature of Vader House later reveals itself to be one of complexity and ambiguity.Many elements of the design prove to serve multiple functions. The bold stair case becomes part of the kitchen joinery, the louvres act as light control as much as privacy screening, and the boundary external wall doubles as the internal kitchen wall.Save this picture!The extension is created out of components that appear to have fallen at the eastern end of the site in a tetris like manner. Unexpectedly a random tetris piece has lodged itself deep within the walls of the original building. This floating block provides the master bedroom with a en-suite reflecting its downstairs companion, fusing the terrace to the extension and giving a glimpse of what one will experience as they move through the site.Save this picture!The anatomy of Vader House also extends far below the site. The timber deck in the courtyard doubles as a retractable deck, when pulled aside reveals a hidden spa, right at the very heart of Vader.Similarly the timber floor boards in the extension form a trapdoor that when opened exposes a cellar, extending far beneath Vader. When these doors are opened, they alter the nature of their spaces significantly, providing the extension with a dynamic and chameleon – like interior.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessA-Lab wins competition with Eco-Office designArticlesProposal by architecture student to Israeli-Palestinian conflictArticles Share Vader house / Austin Maynard Architects ArchDaily Australia Year: Architects: Austin Maynard Architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Vader house / Austin Maynard ArchitectsSave this projectSaveVader house / Austin Maynard Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/15593/vader-house-andrew-maynard-architects Clipboard Save this picture!+ 35 Share 2008 Area: 120 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects “COPY” Houses CopyAbout this officeAustin Maynard ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneHousesAustraliaPublished on March 06, 2009Cite: “Vader house / Austin Maynard Architects” 06 Mar 2009.

Facebook adds Donate Now button for some US nonprofits 204 total views, 1 views today Counter to slactivism?The launch of the donate now button follows the publication of a study by the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business which found that “if people are able to declare support for a charity publicly in social media it can actually make them less likely to donate to the cause later on.”First 19 US nonprofits using Facebook’s Donate Now button Facebook has added a ‘Donate Now’ button to 19 US nonprofits that lets people donate directly via Facebook. It means that Facebook users can donate within Facebook, and not have to leave to visit a donation page on a nonprofit’s website.The feature appears at the top of participating nonprofits’ Facebook pages, and beside posts in the News Feed that they share. Facebook users who click on the button are invited to choose the amount and enter their payment information and “immediately donate to that cause”, according to Facebook.The donation can be made in as few as two clicks if the donor has already used its credit card on Facebook. Otherwise donors will need to enter their credit or debit card details.Donors can then share the nonprofit’s post with their friends on Facebook, with the aim of encouraging others to give. “We hope this will help increase donations as people encourage their friends to donate to the causes that are important to them”, explained the company in a news release.Not available to UK charities yetAt launch the facility was not available to UK charities, but Facebook is inviting expressions of interest. The contact form asks for the organisation’s country, and implies that it is open to receiving enquiries from around the world. The UK is listed.Typhoon Haiyan“Every local cause can become a global one — and every global cause can become a personal movement” FacebookFacebook explained that the ‘donate now’ button was inspired by the success of the company’s partnership with the International Federation of Red Cross last month in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan. Facebook users were able to donate directly to the Red Cross’s relief efforts in the Philippines.But there have been calls for a ‘donate now’ version of the Facebook ‘like’ button for some years.

Josh Constine at Techcrunch commented:“The button will collect credit card numbers and other billing info for Facebook that could aid its ecommerce and gaming initiatives”.Benefit to charities?Is this a major step forward that will increase giving to charities? Simply adding a ‘donate now’ button is not effective online fundraising, as many charities have learned over the years. Just because you can add a button now on Facebook does not change that.Indeed, the button simply generates donations to participating charities. Those charities do not receive the donor’s contact details, so there is no way of developing a relationship with them. The data stays with Facebook.In Facebook rolls out Donate button. “Gee thanks,” sigh charities, Carmel Deamicis argues that the donate now button, even rolled out so soon to Christmas, is “It’s the social giving equivalent of getting socks for Christmas. Sure, you may wear them, but it’s no shiny new bike.”She added:“The gift charities really wanted was an Ad Grants program akin to Google’s, where Facebook would give accredited non-profits $10,000 worth of promoted posts monthly. That way, non-profits could get their pages in front of more eyeballs, garnering more supporters”.Benefit to your charity?[polldaddy poll=7656062] Tagged with: Digital Facebook AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

She is currently serving as the Student Organizations line editor. Kelsey Ritchie For the last three years, a group of students have set their alarm clocks a few hours early on September 11. This group – members and volunteers of Young Americans for Freedom – convenes on campus in the wee hours of the morning to place 2,977 small American flags in the ground.“I think this event is important because it is important that we remember all 2,977 lives lost on September 11, 2001. That day changed our nation and our history,” Julia Mirich, junior political science major and president of YAF said.This project is known as the 9/11 Never Forget Project and branches of YAF participate in it throughout the country. The TCU chapter has been doing it since its conception three years ago.“Remembering the lives lost on September 11th is not an issue that divides us, but it brings us together where we can share sympathy to those who lost loved ones,” said Dillan Keck, sophomore member of YAF. “We have gotten nothing but compliments as many students and faculty are touched every year.”This year, YAFF opened the project to student volunteers. They made a Facebook page inviting any student to join them in front of the Founders Statue at 7 a.m. this morning to help decorate.“I love that the TCU family remembers this day so well,” sophomore criminal justice major Brendan Hartman said. “Seeing all these flags just reminds us how big this event was.”The flags will be on the lawn in front of the Founders’ Statue until 7 p.m. tonight. Members of YAF are also passing out 9/11 buttons in front of the statue in between classes.“I don’t think that most college campuses have events like this,” Mirich said. “There are a lot of YAF chapters throughout the nation that host this same event, so I know we are not alone in hosting this. However, I wish that there was something on every college campus across the nation. So many lives were taken and it is important that they never be forgotten.” Website| + posts Fans enjoy pregame activities at the Alamodome Kelsey Ritchiehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kelsey-ritchie/ ReddIt TCU vs Baylor in Photos TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Video: cello ensemble closes out semester with winter concert The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Flags remind students of the lives lost on 9/11.

As Europe grapples with a major crisis of identity and values, the European Parliament has an historic responsibility. By rejecting ACTA, EU elected representatives would help preserve the infrastructure that is needed for the future of our societies and our democracy. RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan News The last two points have the effect of banning censorship circumvention resources that are indispensible tools for ensuring the flow of news and information in countries such as Iran or China (see detailed article). June 8, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en In particular, Reporters Without Borders condemns:- The requirement that signatory countries establish private policies for copyright enforcement online through cooperation mechanisms- The right accorded to the relevant authorities to ask Internet Service Providers to transmit personnal data identifying their clients- The requirement to criminally prosecute suppression of metadata (data identifying a file’s content and origins) and circumvention of Digital Rights Management (DRM).- The possibility for governments to define legal exceptions to DRM circumvention. A free and open Internet is now essential for expression and communication, and for the sharing of knowledge and democratic participation. Help by sharing this information At a time when many governments and private-sector actors seek increased control over this global network, any legislation hampering the free flow of information and knowledge should be treated with the outmost caution. Forcing companies into private-sector censorship of the Internet with no judicial oversight in order to protect mostly outdated economic models would be a disproportionate violation of freedom of expression, information and communication. Going down such a path is against the very principles on which the European Union was founded. Signatories:Oslobodjenje (1993), Taslima Nasreen (1994), Wei Jingsheng (1996), Salima Ghezali (1997), Nurit Peled-Elhanan (2001), The Belarusian Association of Journalists (2004), Reporters sans frontières (2005), Damas de Blanco (2005), Hauwa Ibrahim (2005), Aliaksandr Milinkevich (2006), Salih Mahmoud Mohamed Osman (2007), Hu Jia (2008), Memorial (2009) Statement by the Sakharov LaureatesAppeal to Members of the European Parliament Reporters Without Borders (itself a winner of the Sakharov Prize in 2005) supports the Sakharov laureates’ statement. The organization, which defends freedom of information, repeatedly voiced its concerns about ACTA, calling on the negotiators “not to sacrifice online free speech and access to information for the sake of combating piracy and the counterfeiting of works protected by copyright”. The signatories, winners of the Sakharov Prize and members of the Sakharov Network, call on all MEPs to take a stand and to refuse to adopt ACTA when they are asked to vote on it in the coming days. December 15, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Online freedoms threatened by another step towards treaty’s adoption Organisation Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says The content of this agreement is no less worrying. In the name of copyright enforcement, the European Union and other signatories would be bound to put pressure on Internet actors, compelling them to monitor and police the network.
