We will rejoice and be glad in it.”Brundidge Mayor Isabell Boyd set the tone for the 7th Annual Each One Reach One Leadership Celebration in Brundidge Saturday and it was a joyful day indeed, Boyd said.“When people come together with a common purpose good things happen. Saturday was a good day in Brundidge and we thank all of those who worked so hard to make it happen,” Boyd said.“Each One Reach One” is an outreach ministry of the S.D. James Evangelist Association and is held annually on the grounds of Brundidge City Hall. The event is open to those who want to effect positive change in their community.

Figure it out and do it.” he said. “Then, work hard because a lazy genius is useless. And, if you fail along the way, fall forward. Reggie Jackson struck out 25,000 times but nobody remembers that. They just remember the three homeruns he hit in the World Series. Thomas Edison had 1,000 failed attempts at inventing the light bulb. But, on his 1001th attempt, he was successful. Always fall forward.”Bivins said the formula for success is in one’s shoes.“Before you go to bed each night, push your shoes as far under the bed as you can reach,” he said. “The next morning, get down on your knees and reach for them. While on your knees, put God first. Ask for his mercy and grace. Pray for humility and understanding.”Mardenborough said into each life, some rain must fall and how those rainy days are handled has much to do with the successes in life.Too often people don’t anticipate those rainy days and aren’t prepared when they come, she said.That’s when one’s integrity and character make a different in success and failure.“Don’t let your attitude determine your altitude,” she said. “Go with friends who are going in the direction you want to go. Those who are going in a different direction can derail your plan. Challenge yourself and, if things don’t go has you planned, don’t sit back, bounce back. Think in a different way.”Mardenborough said, when things begin to go wrong, don’t get out of control.“God will fight your battles if you will let Him,” she said.“Each One Reach One” included a bake contest, free haircuts for boys, and the giveaway of backpacks, school supplies, sock and shoes.

We have a legacy of greatness so dare to dream,” Gray said. “There is no big secret to success, just dream big and work hard. Learn from your failures.

The occurrence of Mesozoic oceanic floor and ancient continental crust on South Georgia

first_imgThe Larsen Harbour Formation of southern South Georgia is part of an ophiolite sequence of submarine lavas and sheeted dykes emplaced into metasedimentary country rocks. The metasediments are remnants of a pre-Cretaceous continental crust which had been subject to regional metamorphism and polyphase deformation prior to intrusion by a variety of acid and basic igneous rocks (roots of the ophiolitic sequence). It is proposed that the segment of continental crust and the Larsen Harbour Formation formed the floor of a back-arc basin which was infilled during Early Cretaceous time by a thick sequence of volcaniclastic sediments (Cumberland Bay Formation).last_img

IU Prof: Health , economic success go hand-in-hand in Hoosier state

first_img WhatsApp WhatsApp Facebook Pinterest Pinterest Google+ Twitter IndianaLocalNews IU Prof: Health , economic success go hand-in-hand in Hoosier state (“stethoscope” by PROjasleen_kaur, CC BY-SA 2.0) A public health professor at IUPUI says there is a direct connection between Indiana’s economic success and the health of Hoosiers.“Employers are looking for the ability to recruit employees who are healthy and productive, and ultimately are going to contribute to the success of that firm,” Professor Paul Halverson told Inside Indiana Business. “We’re hitting a wall when it comes to being able to actually make substantial increases in that goal with an unhealthy population.”To break it down, if Hoosiers were healthier, they would live longer and be more productive. If they’re more productive, that would help their employers, which would help the economy.Indiana ranks 41st in the United States in terms of overall health and 48th in public health funding.“If we could get just to the average of what most states pay for public health, we could increase the life expectancy and we could improve the quality of life,” Halverson said. “When we invest in public health, we spend less on healthcare and live longer. It is also the most important step we can take to strengthen Indiana’s economy.”Halverson added that Hoosiers live, on average, about three years less than the general population in the U.S., and Indiana pays more for medical care, “because in large part, we’re generally sicker.” Facebook Google+ Twitter Previous articleElectric car charging stations installed along toll road in Rolling PrairieNext articleLegislators may tighten mask enforcement at Indiana Statehouse Network Indiana By Network Indiana – January 17, 2021 3 172 last_img read more

News story: Cash boost for families as tax cuts come into effect today

News story: Cash boost for families as tax cuts come into effect today

first_imgPeople across the UK will see a welcome boost to their finances today, thanks to further cuts to income tax.Hundreds of thousands of graduates will also save up to £360 a year from the raising of the student loan repayment threshold which comes into effect today.These are just two of several changes this month to help people earn more and keep more of what they earn, including increases to the National Living Wage and State Pension, and freezes to fuel and beer duties.Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, said: The National Living Wage is increasing by 4.4% from £7.50 to £7.83, benefitting over 2 million workers. A full-time minimum wage worker will earn more than £2,000 since the introduction of the National Living Wage in April 2016. The State Pension is increasing by 3%, meaning a cash increase of £3.65 per week those in retirement. And the full new State Pension will raise by £4.80 per week. The tax-free personal allowance is increasing from £11,500 to £11,850. A typical basic rate taxpayer will pay £1,075 less income tax in 2018-19 than in 2010-11. Fuel duty will remain frozen for the eighth successive year at 57.95 pence per litre to help with motoring costs – saving households and businesses an extra £850m a year in total – or £160 for the average driver. Alcohol duty cuts in previous Budgets followed by a duty freeze last year means the tax on a typical pint of beer will continue to be 12p lower than it would otherwise have been since ending the beer duty escalator in 2013. Pubs will have a £1,000 discount on business rates if they have a rateable value of £100,000 or less, and we’re supporting high-street businesses by switching business rates indexation this month, two years earlier than planned, so that businesses can save £2.3bn over the next 5 years. By 2020, parents and grandparents will be able to pass on assets of up to £1 million to their children and grandchildren without paying any inheritance tax. From today, millions of people will have more pounds in their pocket and keep more of their hard-earned wages. By increasing the National Living Wage, cutting income tax, and freezing fuel duty for the eighth year running, we are boosting living standards for millions of people this April, giving them more choice over how to use their pay packet and building an economy that works for everyone.center_img Today’s changes to the personal allowance will mean that basic rate taxpayers will pay £1,075 less than they did in 2010-11 from 6th April 2018.Since 2010 the government has cut income tax for over 30 million people, prevented half a million taxpayers from being dragged into the higher rate of tax, and taken 4 million of the lowest paid out of tax altogether.Other tax changes coming into force this month will also help families with the cost of living.Through the National Living Wage, full-time workers will now earn £2,000 more than they did when it was introduced in 2016 – a wage boost of £600 a year.We’ve also increased the threshold at which people begin to pay back their student loan to £25,000. This figure will continue to rise in line with changes to average earnings, to help those starting out in their careers.Pensioners will earn an extra £180 through the State Pension than they did last year.For the eighth year in a row, the average car driver will also benefit from the government’s fuel duty freeze, saving £160 a year.And a pint of beer will be 12p cheaper than it would have been – after cuts and freezes made to duty since 2013.And it’s not just families who will benefit.Britain’s pubs will get a £1,000 discount on their business rates, and the great British high street will save £2.3 billion over the next five years thanks to a switch to business rates indexation two years earlier than planned.These positive changes are part of the government’s pledge to create an economy that works for everyone.Changes coming into force this month:last_img read more

Bearing witness to Uganda

Bearing witness to Uganda

first_imgTim McCarthy saw “Witness Uganda” six times this year.The musical production, which had its world premiere at the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) last spring and expects to hit Broadway next year, is based on Griffin Matthews’ trip to the African nation after his church kicked him out because he was gay. Matthews booked a one-way ticket to Uganda, where he began volunteering with an orphanage, and was quickly captivated by the desires of impoverished youths to obtain an education, which isn’t free in Uganda.So Matthews founded the Uganda Project, which provides tuition, medical, and housing assistance for students there. He never expected it would become the backdrop of a musical production.“I thought it was the worst idea ever!” he recalled.But Matthews’ partner and show co-creator, Matt Gould, began secretly recording his rants about the complexities of international aid work and set music them to music, “and that was really the start of ‘Witness Uganda,’” said Matthews, “which was originally a one-night benefit concert in New York in a rinky-dink theater, but it just kept going.”The show inspired McCarthy, a lecturer on history and literature and the program director of Harvard’s Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, to launch The A.R.T. of Human Rights, which “seeks to use the arts and humanities to explore the most pressing human-rights issues of our time,” he said.The yearlong series kicked off Tuesday night at Oberon with a discussion involving McCarthy, Matthews, Gould, Malika Zouhali-Worrall, co-director and producer of the documentary “Call Me Kuchu,” and John “Long Jones” Wambere, co-founder of Spectrum Uganda Initiatives and a participant in “Call Me Kuchu.”The film depicts the struggles of gay Ugandans, who are prosecuted and physically harmed for their sexuality. The movie centers on the life of activist David Kato, who was murdered in 2011.McCarthy pressed the panelists to address why they were moved to make art about difficult topics, and how they settled on the media of film and musical theater.Originally a journalist, Zouhali-Worrall said she was frustrated by the limitations of written reporting. “I wasn’t interested only in the news, I was interested in people’s gestures, their personalities, and who they were, their characteristics, and I think that’s something that film enables you to capture in a really special way,” she said.“I think the thing about musical theater is that it’s an angry art form,” said Gould. “At least for me it is, because I’m a little angry, and it lends itself well to taking individual moments and exploding them into mind-bending, loud, in-your-face, emotional songs. And I think a lot of times we mistake musical theater for being light and fluffy, and the truth of the matter is that the history of musical theater is steeped in writers who were writing about war and racism and love and art and these difficult subjects.”Working in Uganda is not only difficult for Matthews and Gould, but dangerous, too. Because of the show’s growing popularity, the duo recently returned to Uganda to inform their students they were gay — a risky decision, because it could call unwanted attention to the schoolchildren.“But we had to bring them into the conversation,” said Gould.Choosing to involve himself in “Call Me Kuchu” was also a perilous move for Wambere, who justified the risk, saying, “When you notice you’re being oppressed, you want to stand out and make your stand.”Now seeking asylum in the United States, Wambere has mixed emotions about leaving his home. His family is there, and his reach is limited from abroad. But his fight goes on.“The more I cry, the more I break,” he said. “But it does not help me to change the world.”The next event in the A.R.T. of Human Rights will take place on Oct. 20. Here is the full schedule of events.last_img read more
