Slagel wins $1,000 scholarship from NORWFAbigail Slagel will attend The University of Florida this fall.Abigail Slagel is one of those rare students that will probably embrace college as somewhat of a rest compared to her activities in high school.The Apopka High Senior is currently The Supervisor of Elections for The Student Government Association (SGA), the Secretary of The National Honor Society, Treasurer of The Beta Club, a member of The Science National Honor Society, National Art Honor Society and the National French Honor Society.Slagel also has 230 documented hours of service in the community – including volunteering for Habitat for Humanity and at her Church Annunciation Catholic.And in her spare time Slagel started her own business – a Math Tutoring service for four middle school girls.It is this entrepreneurial spirit, combined with academic excellence (a 3.9 GPA), community involvement, and extra curricular initiative that made her the winner of The Northwest Orange Republican Womens Federation’s (NORWF) Alice B. Miner Memorial Scholarship.Her work as Supervisor of Elections for the Apopka High School SGA was noted by the NORWF.“I wanted to be a part of student government because it was a good way to become involved in the community and in my school,” she said.Slagel is excited to be graduating in two weeks, and will use the $1,000 prize at the University of Florida this fall. She also won a $1,000 scholarship from The Apopka Women’s Club earlier this year.Slagel had partial scholarship offers from Wheaton College in Illinois and Bowdoin College in Maine to play Volleyball, but she turned them down to go to UF, and while she will not major in political science, she is considering getting involved in student government at UF.

Benito Masilevu’s huge side-steps give Brive late victory over Toulouse

first_imgWednesday Sep 10, 2014 Benito Masilevu’s huge side-steps give Brive late victory over Toulouse Benito Masilevu has extended his contract at Brive just days after scoring a stunning try that helped them beat Toulouse 26-19 in their Top 14 clash. He showed up young star Gael Fickou with some outrageous stepping before scoring the match winner.The late try gave Brive a well deserved home victory over the giant club, after they had led 16-6 at halftime. Scores were tied late in the game but the former Fiji Sevens flyer came on as a replacement late in the match, and lit up the turf with virtually his first touch of the ball.He got it from a standing start but produced two huge steps to get the better of France centre Fickou, who couldn’t contain last season’s second highest try scorer on the 7’s World Series circuit. He actually scored 27 tries over the nine-leg tournament, so knows his way to the whitewash.The 24-year-old joined Brive on a two year deal in June last year but this week signed a contract extension, meaning he’ll be at the club for another two years on top of that, taking him to 2017.He said he was very happy to continue the adventure, and would give everything on the field to be able to thank the entire sports staff, who trusted him. “Brive gave me the opportunity to evolve in the Top 14, the best league in the world,” Masilevu said.Vice President in charge of sport, Max Mamers said: “We are proud to welcome to our group for the next two seasons Benito Masilevu. The Fijian magician will worry opposing defenses with his speed and deadly pressure.”Fickou didn’t have time to be worried, as before he could think about it, Masilevu was past him with his well balanced out then in then out again. Absolutely deadly one-on-one finishing.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

In a privileged site occupied by an old and obsolete house, we face a dilemma: renovate or demolish such house in order to make way for a new residential project . In conjunction with the client we decide to go for the latter alternative and go ahead with the demolition, adjusting the topography according to the new scheme, which will seek to benefit from the wonderful city views, The rear garden almost disappears, leaving only a narrow contemplative garden, which acquires a very special character due to a beautiful original existing rock.Save this picture!First Floor Plan+ 25The kitchen, breakfast room, family room and master bedroom enjoy this visual effect. Towards the front of the property, a large semi-covered terrace is built around an infinity pool, which makes us forget for a moment the urban condition of the project, thanks to the large green areas of a park just in front of the property, which visually joins the huge greenery of the Country Club golf course.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaInside the house, a large double height living room with a set of exposed concrete skylights becomes the heart of the project, due to the interesting effect of the controlled natural light that floods the whole area. Around such space, the bedrooms, decks, home theater, and home office complete the program. In the last level , such home office enjoys the splendid views of the city, in addition to being visually connected through a large window towards the double height living room, acquiring a condition of great transparency and giving the sensation of being a floating bridge over the terrace.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaThe materials, mainly the gray exposed concrete, the gray oak wood and the black granite facades, as well as the indoor and outdoor white stucco, contribute to the project a both refined and contemporary character.Save this picture!© Jorge TaboadaProject gallerySee allShow lessThe 20 Best Articles of 2013MiscInternational Youth Center in Oberschleißheim / ATELIER 30Selected Projects Share Area:  850 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/462348/ch-house-glr-arquitectos Clipboard CopyAbout this officeGLR ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMonterreyHousesTop100MexicoPublished on December 30, 2013Cite: “CH House / GLR Arquitectos” 30 Dec 2013.

The Badari residence is a house designed on a typical tight knit urban plot measuring 2400sft. The client requirement was further distinguished into two kinds of spaces. Spaces that needed to be personal and intimate verses spaces that needed to be congregational in nature which encouraged interaction among family and friends. The building’s exterior and interiors was conceptualized as an assemblage of a series of episodes that seek ‘delight’ through architectural effects.Save this picture!© Shamanth PatilSave this picture!Second Floor PlanSave this picture!© Shamanth PatilThe Living room – The plan was organised around a double height space that forms the soul of the house. This space connects the living, dining, kitchen, prayer room and the exterior deck into a cohesive whole. The space is further animated with an internal balcony and a bridge overlooking it to establish connectivity with floor above. The fluidity in this space  enables individual requirements to overlap with each other providing a cosy interactive space for the family. This space is rendered with an eclectic material palate, replete with colour and texture that seeks warmth and delight.Save this picture!© Shamanth PatilThe Façade – The bold façade was conceptualized as an assemblage of different parts that come together to form a whole. The master bedroom is sculpted to create a figural void and is materially draped in rough marble. This ephemeral marble screen, structurally hung from the ceiling is bound by an earthy terracotta frame with a void. A garden occupies this void. The green deck with its figural void negotiates the connection between the interiors of the house and street it overlooks. The slatted window screen further adds a syncopated rhythm to this formal organisation.Save this picture!© Shamanth PatilThe Terrace – The terrace sequestered from the busy street is an area where the family entertains and unwinds. The home theatre room and the guest bedroom open into an open space with a Jacuzzi and open deck.

Government closes leading Ekushey Television after court withdraws licence

first_imgNews The interior ministry opened an enquiry on 1 September into the validity of the work permit of Simon Dring, the British head of Ekushey TV. Some ministry officials appear to want legal action against him while others want him deported. Dring, formerly BBC correspondent in the region, covered Bangladesh’s independence war against Pakistan and is known for his reporting on the crimes of the Pakistani army and their Bangladeshi allies, some of whom are now members of the government._____________________________________________ News Receive email alerts RSF_en Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activists August 29, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government closes leading Ekushey Television after court withdraws licence Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) has protested against the government’s closure of Bangladesh’s leading TV station, Ekushey Television (ETV), just one hour after the Supreme Court today upheld the withdrawal of its licence.”The intransigence and haste of the authorities responsible for implementing this judicial decision seems to have been an act of revenge against an overly independent television channel”, Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to Information Minister Tariqul Islam.Ménard noted in his letter that just a few months ago, the report of a Reporters Without Borders investigation had hailed recent progress made by Bangladesh in radio and television plurality. “Today, ETV’s disappearance is a dramatic backward step for viewers in Bangladesh”, he said. The letter urged the minister to find a way to let ETV continue broadcasting while it obtains a new licence under last year’s telecommunications law.Technicians of the state-owned Bangladesh Television cut off ETV’s broadcasts within one hour of the Supreme Court’s decision today (29 August) to reject ETV’s appeal and confirm the cancellation of its licence. Hundreds of people, including performers and human rights activists, had gathered outside the court in a show of solidarity with ETV.The Supreme Court’s decision upholds the 27 March decision of the Dhaka High Court cancelling the licence of ETV on the grounds that it had obtained it under “illegal conditions” from the previous government of the Awami League, now in opposition. This decision was issued in response to a suit filed by two university teachers and a journalist close to the ruling BNP.ETV’s lawyers had appealed against the High Court’s decision before the Supreme Court, which had in turn rejected the appeal. As a result, ETV’s lawyers had appealed again to the Supreme Court to reconsider its own decision, and it was this appeal that was rejected today, leaving no further legal recourse available to ETV.ETV had obtained its licence in 1998, becoming the country’s leading private news channel. It had drawn a large audience thanks to a variety of programming that broke with the state-owned television’s monotonous, pro-government style of broadcasting. to go further Organisation News May 19, 2021 Find out morecenter_img February 22, 2021 Find out more The Supreme Court cancelled the licence of the most popular TV station.

UTPB fetes top 5 with breakfast

(Ruth Campbell | Odessa American) The University of Texas Permian Basin STEM Academy celebrated its top students in its first senior class Friday with a breakfast in the foyer of the Science and Technology Building at UTPB.Because the class has only 50 students, Principal Cody Griffin said the top five were chosen instead of the traditional top 10. Plans are to have about 66 students per grade level, so Griffin doesn’t know if they will get to a top 10.He expressed thanks to UTPB for allowing STEM to use the building.Graduation will be at 7 p.m. May 28 at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center.The top students are: No. 1 Kylee Mesa; No. 2, Anah Diaz; No. 3, Jesse Davidson; No. 4, Brylee Smithee; and No. 5, Tye Sikes.“… As a principal walking into an organization where nothing had been developed and nothing had been set, creating all those traditions that first year has been a very memorable experience for me and I hope it’s been for the kids, too …,” Griffin said.Griffin said he has gotten to know the senior class well and can list off their many achievements.“… From my perspective as a principal, knowing each one of them and being able to share those stories with them every time I get to talk with them, that to me means a lot as a public educator,” Griffin said.Each student was able to bring two adults with them. They also received their cords.Matt Davidson, deputy chief of the Odessa Police Department and Jesse Davidson’s father, said he and his wife, Shannon, who is the STEM superintendent, are very proud of Jesse. He is graduating a year early because of the extra work he has put in.The Davidsons have four sons and his dad said Jesse is an example to his brothers.“I didn’t really expect to be in the top five,” Jesse Davidson said. “I always wanted to be, but because I graduated early I didn’t expect to be so ahead of all my senior classmates. I just didn’t expect it. And graduating early has been a real experience. I’ve been taking summer courses, which has made me busy year-round. But I don’t regret any of it. … “He added that he feels what he has accomplished will give him a head start in life.Davidson, 17, plans to attend UTPB and study mechanical engineering.He plans to go into the military and his end goal is to be an aerospace engineer.“… It’s just always been interesting to me. I also want to be a pilot … I actually have an internship right now with DPS helicopters. I go over to Midland sometimes and go talk to them at their airport and they show me around their aircraft. All the pilots are very nice to me,” Davidson said.The class valedictorian, Mesa, 18, is heading to UT Austin to study astronomy.“I’ve been interested in space since like third grade and my love for science has just developed over time,” Mesa said.She added that she was “very shocked” to be the valedictorian of her class.“I started out as a No. 9 last year, so I didn’t think there would be any chance of me getting even in the top five. But it is something that I hoped for, at least in middle school,” Mesa said.She began attending STEM Academy in her second semester of eighth grade. She likes it because it’s centered on science, technology, engineering and math, which are subjects she’s interested in, and it offers project-based learning.“… There’s a lot of unique activities I get to do here that I wouldn’t get to do that other schools,” Mesa said.Ultimately, she plans to earn a doctorate and study at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Mountain View, Calif.Diaz, 17, was pleased to be named salutatorian.“I think it’s pretty exciting. I know me and the other students have worked very hard to get here, so I’m really glad that we can be like acknowledged for those accomplishments,” she said.Diaz plans to attend UTPB and go into pre-med with the objective of becoming an obstetrician-gynecologist.Graduating high school, Diaz said, is kind of scary because she doesn’t know what’s next. But she’s going to UTPB so it is familiar territory.“I can’t wait to see what happens next,” Diaz said.Sikes, 17, said graduating is a big step toward his future. He plans to attend UTPB and study mechanical engineering.“It’s been a great experience,” Sikes said of being at STEM. “I met like some of the best teachers I’ve ever had.”He added that he’s close to all his classmates, as well.Smithee said she can’t believe graduation is almost here.“I feel like I just started at STEM when they first opened and I just think it’s a really exciting time,” she said.Smithee, 17, will attend UTPB to get her basics and then head to medical school.Being in the top 5, she said, is crazy.“… We started when we were freshmen. You don’t realize how important it is and then you’re glad that you did good whenever you didn’t really know what it all meant,” Smithee said.

However, that was not accepted.A statement from the Catholic Church says a further meeting will be held at a later date.
