Transition to new system of government[ edit ] Main article: Sark general election, Until , Sark’s parliament Chief Pleas was a single chamber consisting of 54 members, comprising the Seigneur, the Seneschal, 40 owners of the Tenements and 12 elected deputies. A change to the system was advocated largely by the Barclay brothers , who had purchased an island within Sark’s territorial waters in  along with the hotels on the island. The Court of Appeal has indeed ruled his powers to be in breach of the European Convention on Human Rights and his powers are subject to further legal challenges on these grounds. Although Sark was aided in its achievement by its location, its historic ban on cars and the fact that there is no public lighting, it was also necessary for local residents to make adjustments, such as re-siting lights, to cut the light pollution. Following an audit in by the IDA the designation was made in January The award is significant in that Sark is the first island community to have achieved this; other Dark-Sky Places have, up to now, been mainly uninhabited areas, and IDA chairman Martin Morgan-Taylor commended Sark residents for their effort.

The Art of Speed-Recruiting: Winning at Face-to-Face Volunteer Recruitment September 25, By Tiger Schmittendorf If you had just 30 seconds to convince someone why they should join your volunteer fire department, what would you say? What would your message be? Do you have a standard sales pitch that you use for just such occasions? Can you even say hello in 30 seconds?
They had been invited to be a part of career day at the local high school in their response area, and they asked me to join them. Each class of freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors came through the gymnasium, trying to connect with as many career opportunities as possible in just in 15 minutes. Their guidance counselors had coached them and given them a list of seven questions to ask each recruiter, regardless of the discipline they were representing. So how do you connect with potentially or more prospects in just 15 minutes?
With no disrespect to our more experienced firefighters, does it really make sense to use retirees to recruit year-olds? You will get a much better response if you match the recruiters with the audience. Be prepared with answers to the questions they might ask. Secondly, you undoubtedly have the greatest firefighters that ever existed in your department, but does that make them the best recruiters?
Are your recruiters outgoing, engaging, and outwardly friendly with a good attitude about your department?

Battle and siege[ edit ] Sketch of the battle, August 5, The army landing force under Granger was ready to launch the attack on August 3, but Farragut wanted to wait for his fourth monitor USS Tecumseh, expected at any moment but delayed at Pensacola. The admiral almost decided to proceed with only three monitors, and the army went ashore on Dauphin Island, acting under a misapprehension of naval intentions. The fleet was not ready to move yet, so the defenders were able to rush additional forces to Fort Gaines.
After the battle, Farragut concluded that the delay had actually worked to the advantage of the Federal forces, as the reinforcements were not great enough to have any effect on the battle, but they were included in the surrender. The 14 wooden-hulled vessels would be lashed together in pairs, in a reprise of a tactic that the admiral had used earlier at the Battle of Port Hudson at Port Hudson, Louisiana.

In the world of seed dating you can expect to get down and dirty with a partner within the first six minutes. Fifteen minutes south of Canberra, on a hectare property, a piercing whistle can be heard. Using the whistle, the volunteer helped dozens of people, aged between 20 and 65, take part in a tree planting speed date, otherwise officially known as the Landcare for Singles tree planting event.
Sophie Kesteven The seed dating event, which is supported by the National Landcare Programme has been running in Canberra for the past six years. She added that it was also a great way to encourage singles to swap their heels and polished shoes for gumboots and help the environment by restoring endangered Box-gum Woodlands in the ACT.
The singles were divided up into three different groups – 20s, 30s and an over s group. Bormey Ken was among the women taking part in the 20s singles group. Bormey Ken and Chris Lesbirel embraced the opportunity to meet new people.

Former inmates decry forced circumcision by Ronnie Layoo Gulu- Former inmates at Gulu Main Prison have accused the authorities of circumcising them against their will. The inmates say the prison wardens force them to get circumcised, saying the move is to enhance good sanitation and health living. Speaking to the Daily Monitor recently, Mr Richard Okello, 22, who was remanded in the prison for alleged assault for three months, said the prison warders forced him to get circumcised.
He said he was exposed to infection since they did not provide him treatment. Another former inmate, Mr David Ojok, who claimed he was also forced to circumcise, said proper sanitation, which should guarantee proper healing, was not provided.
Volunteer Centre Dacorum caught the dating connection a few years ago with their book, “A Toolkit for Volunteer Speed Matching,” explaining how to apply “speed dating” techniques to a volunteer opportunities event!

Plot[ edit ] The series was very similar in style to Saved by the Bell , but with an urban setting and more diverse cast. City Guys was mainly centered on its two main characters, Jamal Grant Wesley Jonathan and Chris Anderson Scott Whyte , two teenagers from different backgrounds — Chris coming from a wealthy family, and Jamal coming from a working-class family — who had to stay on the ball while attending Manhattan High School which was nicknamed in the series as “Manny High” and avoid trouble, while their principal Karen Noble Marcella Lowery attempted to keep them in line and out of trouble.
Jamal and Chris’s similar personalities caused friction between them in the beginning, but they became best friends as the series went on. The boys and their friends — overachiever Dawn Tartikoff Caitlin Mowrey , slick guy Al Ramos Dion Basco , aspiring actress Cassidy Giuliani Marissa Dyan and dimwitted bully-turned-friend who was held back six grades Lionel “L-Train” Johnson Steven Daniel — dealt with the typical teen issues, such as cheating on tests, peer pressure, racism, and dealing with school violence.

Hack and slash, Action-adventure X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a hack and slash action-adventure game loosely based on the film of the same name. The game was developed primarily by Raven Software, who used Unreal engine technology to develop the game. Origins was published by Activision.

His thoughts drift to a forgotten past. The game begins in Africa, which is implied to be Wakanda, due to Stryker’s interest in meteorite deposits in the regions. The Africa missions, which are presented as flashbacks, chronicle the events which lead to Logan disbanding from Team X, showing that his own morals conflict with what Team X is ordered to do i. Three years later, when Logan has settled in Canada with his girlfriend, Kayla Silverfox, his brother Victor Creed reappears at a local bar where he and Logan battle.
Of course, it also offers potential volunteers the chance to have those conversations with a number of organisations. A South Derbyshire first Although Speed Matching has been very successful for volunteer involving organisations in other parts of the country, including our northern neighbours in the city of Derby, it has never been tried before in South Derbyshire. So we are going to offer our local organisations and volunteers the chance to take part.
And remember, just like in speed-dating, “No thanks” means “No thanks.” In this world of increasing time constraints, remember that they don’t have much time and you don’t either. You need to be able to move from Point A to Point B and from prospect-to-prospect effectively and in a timely manner.

All faces, all ages, all levels, all backgrounds and all retrospective. From that southern creole ragtime Cake Walk to the transatlantic twist. And from that uptown low down Harlem beat to the contemporary world wide rave: All that old school syncopated rhythm and all that irresistible swing. For the summer to come, we will make sure that the entire event genuinely will reflect this intention, which originally was introduced to the event by the late Frankie Manning back in the summer of Besides holding on to the swing music aspect of things, the event also like the idea to support pre-swing and post-swing dances and music.
Historically we are willing to flirt with fad dances of the late-late s, but also hold hand with styles of the s. We somehow believe that all these dances have something to say and add to the complete picture of traditional American swing dancing of the golden age of syncopated music. With a reference to the previous paragraph, we are happy to continue on the track of traditional swing era dances, but also introduce distinct side-tracks of ragtime era dances and jazz era dances
