Katie Colemanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/katie-coleman/ Twitter Linkedin Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature printSix of the eight speakers who have appeared before the Fort Worth City Council to discuss the city’s proposed 2017 budget had one request: more public transportation.The only problem with the request is that public transportation isn’t part of the city’s general fund, or day-to-day operations.The city manager’s $639 million spending plan sets aside $33 million for “Transportation and Public Works,” which is a 32 percent cut from last year. But City Manager David Cooke said Fort Worth Transit doesn’t use money from that department.“Transit ain’t getting cut at all,” Cooke said. “They don’t really get any money from the city anyway.”Cooke said money for Fort Worth Transit comes from a half-cent sales tax.“So if that half cent sales tax grows, which it is, that’s the money that they get to use to do TEX rail, TRE, and all the buses that operate in Fort Worth,” Cooke said. “So they’re not getting cut, and that revenue stream is growing.”Cooke said some of the money that was cut from the Transportation and Public Works department will be going to the Capital Project Fund.“It’s capital money which means we’re going to use it to build stuff and fix stuff,” Cooke said. “So we’re gonna appropriate it directly to the capital project budget as opposed to showing it in [Transportation and Public Works] and then transferring it to the capital project fund.”Cooke said the capital project fund can be used on public transit.Michael Bennett, representative of the Real Estate Council of Greater Fort Worth, said better transportation is crucial to the city’s economic development.“As we in the real estate council look at the future of our city and as we look at where we’re headed we’re worried that we’re gonna be gridlocked and we’re worried that that’s going to take us off that wonderful upward climb that we have,” Bennett said.The final budget will be considered by City Council Sept. 13.

People pay what they can afford for a fresh, healthy meal cooked with local, seasonal ingredients. Williams said the project has served nearly 50,000 people through this unique payment model. “Hunger is larger than most people know, ” Williams said. According to Williams, 90% of Tarrant County’s hungry population are not homeless and 36% do not qualify for government programs. Taste Project’s eatery is the first venture to help feed, educate and serve Tarrant County’s food-insecure population, which comprises almost 17% of the overall community. Food insecurity is defined as “a household-level economic and social condition of limited or uncertain access to adequate food,” according to the United States Department of Agriculture. The Taste Project joined 50 other nonprofit restaurants across the nation for National Everybody Easts Week from Aug. 25-31 “to help consumers understand the power they have in ending hunger in their community,” according to a press release. “This is just one of the great events the Taste Project has initiated to address the struggles of those experiencing food insecurity, and their efforts are always community-driven,” Ann Zadeh, Fort Worth’s District 9 representative said.

Follow the news on Iraq December 16, 2020 Find out more News Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” News February 15, 2021 Find out more December 28, 2020 Find out more IraqMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders calls for an impartial, objective and independent enquiry by the International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission.It said the “unsatisfactory” explanations given by US officials for attacks on journalists in Baghdad this week underlined the need for the Commission to look into such violations of the Geneva Conventions on treatment of civilians in wartime.”We asked you on 1 April to investigate the bombing of Iraqi TV headquarters but we received no reply,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to the Commission’s president, Sir Kenneth Keith.”We are now approaching you again to urge you to carry out your duty to investigate these attacks and others on journalists and media covering the war in Iraq. Attacks on civilians, which include journalists, and on civilian property are war crimes and serious violations of the Geneva Conventions,” he said.”The neighbouring Baghdad offices of the Arab TV stations Al-Jazeera and Abu Dhabi TV, as well as the Palestine Hotel – both known to US forces as places where journalists were living and working – were attacked deliberately and without warning by US forces on 8 April, killing three journalists.”The bombing of the TV station offices could not have been an error. Al-Jazeera has told US forces where all its offices in Iraq are and has hung large banners outside them marked “TV.””US officials said a US tank fired on the Palestine Hotel because rockets were being fired from it. None of the journalists there saw any such thing and said that in fact things were very quiet in the area when the tank took several minutes to adjust its gun and then fired. Film by the French TV station France 3 confirmed this version of events.”These conflicting versions require an impartial, objective and independent enquiry by the Commission you head,” Ménard told Sir Keith. “These events are too serious to be left solely in the hands of an investigation by US officials, who have already refused to give any details about the killing of a British TV journalist under British-US gunfire in Basra on 22 March and the disappearance of two of his colleagues caught in the incident.”US Col. David Perkins, commander of the 2nd Brigade of the Third Infantry Division, said yesterday US troops had now been told not to fire on the hotel, even if shots came from it.A spokesman for the Spanish defence ministry (one of the dead journalists was Spanish) said US-British forces had declared the hotel a military target on 6 April on grounds that Iraqi leaders were meeting there. He said US-British forces had told journalists at the hotel about this.No media or journalist appears to have been warned of the attack, contrary to the obligation set out in the Geneva Conventions to give due and effective warning.The International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission was set up in 1991 (based in Bern, Switzerland) under the First Additional Protocol of the Geneva Conventions and has the job of investigating any alleged serious violation of international humanitarian law. To date it has received no cases to investigate.To have jurisdiction, it has to be petitioned by one of the parties to a conflict or by one of the countries that have recognised its jurisdiction. To conduct an investigation, all the belligerents must accept its authority. Among the countries involved in the Iraq war, only Australia and the United Kingdom have formally recognised it, allowing an investigation to go ahead as far as they are concerned. The United States and Iraq have not yet accepted the principle of such an enquiry. Receive email alerts RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” News

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. On April 15 ballplayers at Dodger Stadium and throughout Major League Baseball donned Jackie Robinsonâ€™s number 42 in remembrance of Robinsonâ€™s historic breaking of baseballâ€™s color barrier nearly 70 years ago. Then, less than two weeks after that soaring celebration of racial unity, those horrid phone recordings of LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling reminded us that racism lives on.The Jackie and Mack Robinson memorial across from Pasadena City Hall is a breathtaking reminder of how far the nation has come since the Robinsons and others battled bigotry while making sports history in the pre-Civil Rights era. In those days — indeed throughout most of US history — racism was legally sanctioned, socially accepted and unashamedly mainstream. But for the last half-century or so, itâ€™s been in serious retreat. Thanks to the sacrifices of our courageous ancestors, racial discrimination is no longer legal and racist words and behavior no longer enjoy societal acceptance. At least not in public. But in private, when they think that no one is paying attention, racists show their true colors.Donald Sterling foulâ€™s remarks underscore that some Americans still adhere to slavery-era attitudes toward black people. Attitudes that consider it okay to exploit blacks and other people of color for fun and profit, to discriminate against us and even to feign friendship while refusing to respect us as equals. And since many of the people who hold these racist attitudes also hold economic, social and political power it is crucial for people of color â€“ especially African-Americans â€“ to be at our very best.When we reject the opportunity for education by acting a fool in class, ditching class or dropping out of school, when we embrace criminal culture, demean our women, or conduct ourselves in an undisciplined and reckless manner we not only set ourselves up for failure, we also play directly into the stereotypes that the Donald Sterlings of the world use to justify their mistreatment of us.But on the flipside, when we embrace education, when we carry ourselves with dignity, discipline and professionalism, when we love one another and use our God-given intelligence and talents to build up ourselves, our families and our communities â€“ when we do these things we move forward on the path to success. And our success will contribute to the Biblical effect (described by Solomon in the book of Proverbs) of heaping hot coals on our enemiesâ€™ heads!The 19th century French poet Charles Baudelaire stated that “the finest trick of the devil is to persuade you that he does not exist.” Thatâ€™s the strategic goal of todayâ€™s racists — to persuade us that they do not exist. But their evil attitudes are very real, and those attitudes inevitably lead to evil actions.But take heart! Itâ€™s true that the bad guys still exist, and they do exercise power. But racism no longer defines the national character as it did for most of American history. Evidence of that was the avalanche of condemnation that crashed down on Donald Sterling, culminating in the NBA commissionerâ€™s lifetime ban and demands by ownersâ€™ group that Sterling sell the team. So, the United States is filled with people of goodwill from every racial and ethnic group who know that everyone deserves respect and equal opportunity. As President Obama stated, part of why Donald Sterlingâ€™s statements stood so much is that â€œthere has been this shift in how we view ourselves.â€Thanks for listening. Iâ€™m Cameron Turner and thatâ€™s my two cents.

WhatsApp Linkedin Free Green Hospitality Programme Workshop takes place in Limerick “WITH further increase in Energy prices expected in October alongside recent landfill waste cost increases – taking control and greening your business has never been more pertinent,” said Maurice Bergin, Director of the Green Hospitality Programme. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Green Hospitality Certified Members achieve Energy, Water and Waste costs that are between 25-50% below the Irish average which allows them to compete in these challenging times”.Maurice Bergin was speaking at the launch of The Green Hospitality Programme (GHP) national Workshop series. The GHP which offers Internationally recognised Environmental Certification will continue its very popular 2011 Workshop series during October for its members and is also inviting interested hospitality businesses to attend, to find out how easy it is to become more efficient and reduce costs and also achieve recognised environmental certification. The next Workshop takes place on the October 4 next at the Carlton Castletroy Hotel in Limerick commencing at 9.30am.“By adopting the GHP criteria members are also opening up new markets by tapping into the increasing worldwide demand for more environmentally friendly businesses”, said Bergin. “Whilst cost is still the main driver for consumers purchase decisions, customers are definitely becoming more aware of the environmental impact of their lifestyles”. They are conscious of companies that do things right and in brands that share their own values. The advent of social media means that companies must also be more honest with their customers or they’ll be found out very quickly and that is just as important for the hospitality industry as any other, It’s a win win for business if done correctly!”.The GHP workshops are free of charge and open to anyone who might be interested.

Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Twitter Print PTSB has been told to repay the Limerick mother the legal fees that it charged for taking her to courtPERMANENT TSB Limerick has been ordered to return or credit €2,710 in legal fees it charged a young mother they took to court in a bid to repossess her home.County Registrar Pat Wallace issued the instruction after he was given copies of the woman’s bank accounts detailing the charges that had been made.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “And all of this, while I had been paying my mortgage”, the young mother said.In July, Mr Wallace heard the woman explained that in 2013 the bank instigated proceedings against her.“I just want to tell the court that I have been paying my mortgage in full for the last two years but each time this case is brought before the court, the bank apply their legal fees to my arrears. I have been paying it all and then they throw this on top. I just can’t cope with it”, she said.The young mother explained that at the start of 2013, she had an illness and missed four mortgage repayments.“The bank brought me to court but I got back on track and I haven’t missed a payment in more than two years and they still have me here and expect me to pay for their fees.”She borrowed €146,000 to buy her home in 2008.As of last July, she owed €147,000 and €13,000 in arrears.Bank charges that were applied by PTSB included legal fees for the case they were taking against her.They had sought an indefinite adjournment but Mr Wallace asked for a full review of the file.Other account actions by the bank had also been questioned by the young mother prompting Mr Wallace to criticise lenders adding that he had a “serious issue with arbitrary in-house cost being loaded against a borrower’s loan.“It is the court that determines and awards legal costs where applicable”, he said.After reviewing the woman’s statements and documentation from the bank, Mr Wallace said “I have found that €2,710 has been charged to you by the bank in legal fees.“Therefore, when these proceedings are resolved, I want that amount to be credited or returned to this woman,” he instructed the bank’s solicitor.The case was adjourned until next January for review.In another case, Mr Wallace gave a similar instruction again to PTSB over €2,319 they had taken from a Limerick father under similar circumstances.
