There’s no reason for there to be limited seating for the citizens of Apopka. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Reply TAGSThe Apopka Voice Townhall Debates Previous articleApopka to open first new fire station in 20 years this weekNext articleFAIRWINDS Credit Union announces $1.1 million gift to UCF Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR  But unlike most debates or townhalls, this event will attempt to re-create the experience of being on the Apopka City Council. The agenda items (topics) and specifics (questions) will be sent to the eight candidates a week in advance so that they can prepare to answer questions delivered to them. This style of debate is intended to better simulate the experience of being an Apopka City Commissioner. There will also be no timed answers, allowing candidates to reply to questions in a more conversational style, similar to how the City Council operates during a discussion. Three specific topics will be discussed with only a few questions per topic. The discussion will stay on that topic until a comprehensive understanding of the four candidate’s viewpoints/opinions/thoughts is known. The purpose of this format is not to measure how quickly a candidate thinks on their feet, but rather to measure their approach to solving critical issues for Apopka, and to fully understand their opinions and ideologies on the subject.In the last 30 minutes, a more traditional townhall style debate will close the event with the candidates answering questions posed by the audience. Seating is limited to first-come-first-served. Please enter your comment! There are only 20 days until Apopka’s Election Day, which means it’s time to meet your candidates for City Commission. And what better way to get to know them than at a townhall debate? On Wednesday, February 28th, and Thursday, March 1st The Apopka Voice will host two City Commission Townhall debates at the Highland Manor from 6-8 PM. It’s the first debates in the news site’s history, and the first time all four candidates from Seat #1 and Seat #2 will meet together at the same event. Apopka City Halllast_img read more


A young Vincent Clerc smashed by Jonah Lomu in 2003

first_imgThursday Mar 27, 2008 A young Vincent Clerc smashed by Jonah Lomu in 2003 Long before Vincent Clerc was the star French winger that he is today, he was a small, rather funny looking quick guy with a goofy scrum cap. That’s how he appeared to some anyway. Today he’s a try scoring machine with all the finesse and flair of French wingers of the past. Back in 2003, in only his second test for his country against the mighty All Blacks, it was a baptism of fire as he was up against the most feared runner in the game. That’s right, Jonah Lomu.A bit of a miss match to say the least. It wasn’t on defence that 5ft10 Clerc struggled on this occasion though, it was with ball in hand. Clerc made the silly mistake of not kicking, or passing, straight away.Lomu was never known for his huge defensive capabilities, but when it’s a huge guy up against a small man, there’s only going to be one result.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

‘Coco’ is beautiful and one of Pixar’s best films

first_imgLinkedin Linkedin Photo courtesy of Disney Twitter Facebook Review: ‘Ready Player One’ is a ton of fun William Konig TAGSCocoDisneyPixar William Konighttps://www.tcu360.com/author/william-konig/ print“Coco” is a movie full of heart, beauty, and spectacular visuals. The visuals and colors used were captivating and the movie offers a wonderful coming of age movie.Pixar hits this one out the park with a film about a young kid named Miguel (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez) who dreams of being a musician but is held back by his family because of their ban on music. He soon finds himself in the Land of the Dead in order to prove his love for music.The voice acting for “Coco” is great and is led by a newcomer to film. Gonzalez was heartfelt and genuine in his role as the Miguel and is followed by great performances from the other characters including Gael García Bernal as the voice of Hector, Benjamin Bratt as the voice of Ernesto de la Cruz and Renée Victor as Miguel’s grandmother.The music in “Coco” was outstanding and I wanted so much more when I left the theater. If I had any complaint about this movie it would be that I wanted more music. Songs like “Remember Me” and “Proud Corazón” stay with you after the movie and are some of Pixar’s best-written songs.The animation and the colors in this movie were mesmerizing at points and overall some of Pixar’s best. Pixar took viewers on a tour of the land of the dead and made sure to make every moment as stunning as possible. In under two hours the movie builds a world I will never forget.Verdict:This is one of Pixar’s best films to date and one of my favorite movies of the year. I left the theater wanting to turn back around and watch it again. It has great colors and animation, a beautiful story, awesome music and is worth every minute of your time. If you have to choose a movie to see this holiday weekend then go see “Coco” because it is worth your money.9.5/10 William Konighttps://www.tcu360.com/author/william-konig/ Review: ‘Love, Simon’ is actually a cute romantic comedy William Konighttps://www.tcu360.com/author/william-konig/ Previous articleWomen’s basketball suffers first loss, falls to YaleNext articleTCU pulls away from Baylor late, clinches spot in Big 12 title game William Konig RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Review: predictions on who will win the Oscar vs. who should Facebook William Konighttps://www.tcu360.com/author/william-konig/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history + posts Review: ‘Black Panther’ delivered even with high expectations ReddIt ReddIt Twitter The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive yearslast_img read more


Resurgence of violence against journalists

first_img July 15, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Resurgence of violence against journalists News December 28, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information IraqMiddle East – North Africa IraqMiddle East – North Africa There have been two incidents since the start of the withdrawal of US forces from the main Iraqi cities two weeks ago that could indicate a worsening in the environment for the Iraqi media. Reporters Without Borders fears a resurgence of threats and violence against journalists by not only armed groups but also the police and other law enforcement personnel.“Iraqi security forces working with Sahwa militias seem to be taking advantage of the withdrawal of the US forces to physically target journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Iraqi authorities must do what is necessary to put a stop to this and to ensure that there are independent investigations into these two recent incidents.”Three reporters – Ali Al-Juburi of the satellite TV station Ifaq, Ahmad Omad of Biladi TV and Karim Al-Qasimi of the newspaper Al Fiha – were physically attacked and held for five hours in Babil province, near Ramadi (about 120 km west of Baghdad), while returning from covering a visit by Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki to the region on 8 July.They were travelling together in a car marked “Press” that was stopped by Sahwa militiamen and Iraqi policemen working together. During the search of their car, they were insulted and physically attacked by a policeman, Juburi said. When they tried to file a complaint against the policeman, they were detained for five hours at a police station by his nephew. Journalists based in Babil province subsequently staged a demonstration in protest against the violence to which their colleagues had been subjected.In the other incident, reporter Haydar Al-Qotbi of US-funded Radio Sawa was attacked by Sahwa militiamen on 10 July near Kashafa stadium in the Baghdad district of Kasra, where he had gone to cover an accident. When the militiamen stopped his car, he showed them his press ID and one of them insulted him for working for a US news media. He was then dragged from the car and badly beaten by six men.

Montana Street, between Lincoln and Los Robles avenues.• Sunnyslope Avenue, between Walnut Street and Del Mar Boulevard.• San Pasqual Street, between Hill Avenue and east city limit.City Manager Steve Mermell said during a recent Municipal Services Committee teleconference meeting that residents in those areas have been pressing for street humps to slow the flow of traffic.“Some community members are anxious to see some of the streets become more eligible,” Mermell told committee members.However, that would not mean the newly OK’d streets would immediately get the speed humps — only that the segments would be eligible for consideration, subject to a complicated range of requirements.Among those 19 city requirements are width (one lane in each direction), speed limit (25 mph), the distance between stop signs, less than 5 percent grade, limited curvature, and the amount of daily traffic (at least 1,000 but less than 4,000 vehicles per day).Also, streets eligible for speed humps cannot be truck or transit routes, cannot be installed “where a significant portion of the traffic will be diverted to nearby residential or local streets,” or be placed where installation might interfere with drainage, according to city guidelines.In addition, speed humps cannot be installed on streets “used as primary or routine emergency vehicle access routes unless it is considered acceptable to the emergency services,” according to the guidelines.“While the proposed change to the Speed Hump Policy would make these streets eligible for speed humps, the street segments would still need to be evaluated in detail utilizing the entire process defined in the Speed Hump Policy,” Cornejo’s report states.A formal request to install speed humps along any of the streets falling under the proposed changes would need to be submitted by a resident of a given street segment. Should the segment meet all the city’s criteria, speed hump installation would still hinge on a two-thirds vote in favor of the humps from the households along the segment, the report said.The city receives about 30 requests for speed humps per year, with less than 10 percent qualifying for a vote by residents, the city DOT report says. Between July 2017 and June 2020, 87 requests were received by the city, and 10 met all the physical requirements – but only two received enough votes from residents for eventual installation.The “Pasadena Street Types Plan,” which would be amended should the council approve the city DOT’s recommendation, was adopted in March 2014. The plan is “the organizing framework around which street and sidewalk design guidelines are built that will make Pasadena more walkable and bike-friendly in support of the city’s adopted sustainability goals.’’ Make a comment First Heatwave Expected Next Week Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
