EntertainmentLocalNews D.R.E.A.M Foundation to host dance showcase by: – November 16, 2013 Share The Dominica Realistic Education and Arts Movement (D.R.E.A.M) Foundation will host a dance showcase on November 27 at the Anchorage Hotel in partnership with the Dominica Institute for the Arts.The show will showcase contemporary dance choreographed and directed by Christian Gernet of Martinique who is a renowned choreographer. Tickets cost $30 and $70 with dinner. The Foundation, the brain child of reigning Miss Dominica Leslassa Armour-Shillingford, was established as a base for her charitable activities and as a means of promoting her platform of ‘Holistic Education for all’. In an interview with Dominica Vibes on Friday, November 15, Miss Armour-Shillingford said the Foundation seeks to identify and is target three projects each year. This year the completion of the Old Mill Cultural Centre’s dance studio has been identified as the first project and proceeds from this night of dance will go towards the project.She said the studio has no mirrors, bars or any “real” changing areas. “Having the only dance studio in Dominica and me of course being a dancer, felt that it was quite urgent to tackle.” Miss Armour-Shillingford also tutors dance classes at the Institute of Arts. The Pioneer Preparatory School and the Newtown Primary School have also been identified as the D.R.E.A.M Foundations three part project for the year.“We thought of Pioneer Preparatory because they are already focused on holistic education and they have this enrichment programme which is offered to anyone who would like to come in to experience different classes.”Dance, art and languages are some of the classes offered as part of Pioneer’s enrichment programme.She added that due to the construction of the new Newtown Primary School this may not be as “urgent as we initially thought”. Miss Armour-Shillingford will perform as well as students of the Old Mill dance class. B3 will do a contemporary twist to their hip hop as well as performances from other local performers.Dominica Vibes News Tweetcenter_img Share Share 44 Views   one commentlast_img read more

The latest is said to have taken place over the weekend. Head of the Criminal Investigating Unit (CID), acting superintendent Cuffy Williams told Dominica Vibes on Wednesday, July 9, that no reports of these alleged incidents have been made to the police. Mr Williams stated that he was “a bit stunned and taken aback” to hear and read the social media reports since it was not reported to the police.“We have had no such report officially in our records that a rapist is on the loose and I am sure that if we had such report we would have acted upon it,” Mr Williams said. “No one has come forward to say yes this person accosted me or made attempts at me. We don’t have any report that we could investigate, so like everybody else we are getting it on social media and via radio,” he said. Superintendent Williams has called on anyone with information about the alleged incidents to make a report to the nearest police station. “If an individual makes an inappropriate move towards you, you come and you make a report to the police station and my department very likely will investigate the matter,” Mr Williams informed.Dominica Vibes News Sharecenter_img LocalNews No reports of ‘rapist attack’ made to police by: – July 9, 2014 Sharing is caring!

first_imgTO THE EDITOR:I’m writing to let your readers know why I’m supporting the Farmington millage — and why I’m encouraging folks in Farmington to join me in voting yes.This Nov. 6, we’ve got a lot on the ballot. Whether you’re a Democrat cheering for the “blue wave,” a Republican hoping to hold the house and senate, or you’ve got strong opinions on marijuana, there’s a lot at stake.Farmington has a lot at stake in this election, too. Because on Nov. 6, we vote on the millage that will determine whether the Farmington way of life we know and love will continue. We decide whether it’s worth $18.75/month — 62 cents/day, for the average homeowner — to support the investment we’ve made in the city we call home.For me, it’s an easy “yes.” Here’s my 3-point Reader’s Digest rundown: 1) Farmington is crazily underfunded, and it’s not the city’s fault; it’s the state’s.Because of Michigan law, our city lost a ton of funding from property taxes during the Great Recession. Taxable value fell 36 percent. Home values are back up now, but here’s the catch: Michigan law won’t allow the taxable value of homes to increase as quickly as it fell. That means today, the taxes we pay to the city are 18.6 percent less than they were 10 years ago.But we all know the bills don’t go down just because you have less money. The reality is, city expenses have risen over $670,000 in the last 10 years, while operating revenues have increased a meagre $23,000. The end result is that the city is trying to still provide the services we want, using less funding than we had 10 years ago.To make up that difference, the city has been spending a bit of its savings each year. Now we’re at the point where in five years, those savings will be gone – unless we take action. And taking action is the point of this proposal.The millage is to compensate for what the state won’t do to help. It’s taking action to close the gap, fund what we love, and start investing in our future again.2) 100 percent of the new funding will stay local! Every dollar will be invested straight back into the Farmington community.Some of the funds will go toward city services. Like our public safety team, with their two-minute response time that’s one of the fastest in the state. Our farmers market. The Civic Theatre, ranked the best movie theater in Metro Detroit.I’m a longtime volunteer at the Gov. Warner Mansion. That’s a city service. So are things like snow plowing and leaf pickup, that add safety and convenience to our daily lives. And I think all of us want to continue those city services, because that’s a big part of what keeps Farmington great.The rest of the funds – 50 percent or more – will be put toward new projects that are on hold right now because we don’t have the funds. When this passes, we’ll be able to start improvements!That would mean projects like repairs to streets and sidewalks… water and sewer maintenance… park improvements… finally hitting “go” on the Farmington Road streetscape.It’s Farmington investing in Farmington, and we all stand to benefit.3) What’s the cost? For the average Farmington homeowner, it’s $18.75/month, or 62 cents/day, for the next 10 years.Currently, we are paying less in taxes now than we were 10 years ago. If this passes, we will still be paying less than we were 10 years ago. And the increase? It’s the price of one “dinner out” a month. Or three cups of coffee at Starbucks.* * *The proposal is the very last question on the back of your Nov. 6 ballot. And for those of us in Farmington, the outcome of this proposal will continue to directly affect the quality of our lives long after the governor, state reps, and senators have finished their terms of office.So in the days between now and Nov. 6, when you’re raking your leaves to the curb…When you dodge that same damn pothole in your neighborhood street…When you see a memo on Facebook about holiday tree lighting at the Warner Mansion and hit “interested” because let’s face it, we’re all ready for election season to be over……think of the kind of community we enjoy, and the future we want to create, long after the ballots have been cast. Please, join me in voting “yes” to keep our city beautiful, our property values strong, and our future bright.Maria TaylorFarmington City Council Reported by admin Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img Mike Coutee Stow, Ohio— Miryne Thomas knew it wasn’t going to be easy but it was enough to get the job done.The 6’7″ senior led his Ironmen to victory, as Central Catholic defeated Benedictine, 55-52, in overtime.Thomas finished with 18 points, while Tyler Golphin scored 12.“I told my teammates let’s keep pushing so we can cut the net and get our medals,” Thomas said after the win.“They had their little run and we had ours, that’s what basketball is all about.”He was the one who delivered the final blow by making both of his free throws after getting fouled with 5 seconds left.Before that happened, Benedictine guard Chris Jefferson got fouled after forcing a turnover.He split his two shots at the line to put the Bengals up top 52-51 with 25 seconds to go in overtime.On the next Central Catholic possession, Thomas put one in, giving his team hope and a one-point lead. With 7.5 seconds to go, a traveling violation was called on Benedictine.“Give credit to Central today, they attacked the glass and they beat all the tough plays.” Coach Rob Stircula said.“Pretty much it came down to two plays at the end but wasn’t able to capitalize.”Intense defensive basketball waa the theme for the start of the game, as Central led 24-14 at halftime. However, momentum changed in the second half.Benedictine got on a nice 6-0 run to cut the deficit to four to start the second half.The Ironmen were able to build the lead back up to 10. With Chris Jefferson’s help, Benedictine cut back into the deficit and trailed 38-33 going into the fourth.“We wanted to make sure we didn’t quit.” Central Catholic head coach Jordan Duke said. “They hit us in the third quarter but we wanted to do the same thing and come back.”It was a rematch of last year’s district final, in which Benedictine won by 10.2017 was another story for Central Catholic.The Ironmen advance to the regional semifinals to face Ursuline on Thursday, March 16.Tip-off from the Canton Civic Center is set for 6:15 pm.

[Picture: Andrew Matthews/PA Wire]Fulham owner Shahid Khan has written to every Football Association councillor to assure them he has no intention of moving the club to Wembley if his proposed purchase of the stadium is approved.AdChoices广告The American billionaire’s £900million offer for Wembley is being discussed by the 127-strong council on Thursday, with a significant number in the room still strongly opposed to the idea of selling the national stadium, even if the FA has pledged to spend the windfall on grassroots facilities.Some of this opposition is emotional but some is based on concerns about Khan’s motives for buying the stadium, which was reopened in 2007 after a £757million rebuild, including a belief that he wants to base both his National Football League team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, and Fulham there.Fulham’s former assistant director of football Craig Kline has resurfaced this week after his acrimonious exit from the club a year ago, claiming that Khan really plans to build luxury flats at Craven Cottage – an allegation Fulham has dismissed as “nonsense”.In his letter, which was sent on Friday, Khan wrote: “When I was privileged to become chairman of Fulham in 2013, I immediately encountered rumours as to what this meant for the future of our home ground of Craven Cottage and, for that matter, the club itself.“My word at the time was I would invest in the club and the renovation of Craven Cottage so it would always be the lifetime and spiritual home of Fulham, but only in a manner that would be respectful of the neighbourhood while also delivering economic and quality of life benefits that would serve all Londoners every day of the year.“Committing to doing the right thing, and then doing it right, was the only path I would consider.”Ownership of the famous stadium could be about to change handsHe then explained that “years of careful planning and communication with every stakeholder imaginable” will enable him to build a new Riverside Stand at the 122-year-old stadium, adding 5,000 to the ground’s current 25,000 capacity.This experience, he wrote, proves that “a new era for Craven Cottage is on the horizon”, just as it could be for Wembley, a venue that has already fallen “a stage or two behind newer stadiums that have opened recently in Europe alone”.The FA’s chief financial officer Mark Burrows said much the same thing in a Wembley sale presentation to the bosses of county FAs on Tuesday, adding that selling the stadium would save the national governing body £72million in maintenance costs at Wembley.Khan has spent millions upgrading the Jaguars’ current home in north Florida, which now has the two largest video screens in world sport, two swimming pools and a dog park for fans who want to bring their pets to the game.“Wembley Stadium must be the global standard in every sense – technology, hospitality, the visitor experience, the athlete expectation and much more,” wrote Khan.“As I’ve done with my investment in the NFL stadium in Jacksonville and we are about to see with Fulham and Craven Cottage, I will protect what we all agree is wonderful about Wembley Stadium and be steadfast, and respectful, in making sure the Wembley Stadium of the future will never have an equal.“I owe it to you to be a responsible owner and operator of Wembley Stadium, which under my guardianship will at all times be three things – the national stadium of England, the traditional home of English football, and one of the world’s finest venues for sport and entertainment.”Khan’s letter finished with an offer to let a committee of FA councillors continue to play “a meaningful advisory role on all FA-related stadium matters” and wrote “it goes without saying that you and all FA Council members will always be welcomed as our guest for FA events at Wembley”.

first_imgSummer signing Philippe Sandler will certainly make a case for himself, but El Gol Digital in Spain believe Pep Guardiola has someone else in mind in Aïssa Mandi.The Real Betis centre-back, who has a €30m release clause in his contract with the Spanish club, has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months, as West Ham and Arsenal have both come knocking, without much success.Manchester City could change that, as the Algeria international’s ability to bring the ball out of the defence with calm and poise would suit Guardiola’s style down to a T.However, their claim the Premier League could ‘offer around €45m’ for his services sheds some doubt on the article, since all they need to bid is €30m to trigger his release clause.Maybe El Gol Digital just ‘forgot’ about that detail.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

first_imgAre you a Serie A footballer and haven’t been linked with a move to Everton in recent months? If so, you may need to have a word with your agent. Since Carlo Ancelotti moved to the Premier League club, the Toffees have been linked with more than twenty players from Serie A, with there being stories every day in the Italian media.Some of the links look to be part of hyping players and helping them get new contracts or smoke out interest from elsewhere. Of course, some of the claims of interest will be genuine and that’s felt the way with several options, including Napoli’s Allan.SportMediaSet now bring another name into the picture: Daniel Maldini.They made the claims at the weekend, and the news has since travelled around the Italian media having little aspects added.SportMediaSet reported Everton have repeatedly asked about signing Maldini ‘in recent months’, and keep getting ‘negative’ answers from AC Milan, which don’t seem to be discouraging them.Maldini, the son of AC Milan legend Paolo, is an 18 year old attacking midfielder, who has played for Italy at U18 and U19 level.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
