Syria has been devastated by the civil war since it began in 2011. About 6.5 million people have been displaced within Syria more than 12 times the population of Cumbria.

Lewis wanted to do something to help refugees after hearing about how they often have to walk for miles in the mud and wet without shoes.

He decided to collect unwanted shoes from families and send them to the charity Edinburgh Cares, which is running a “Step In My Shoes” appeal.

On Saturday Lewis and his mum, Jane Yates, who teaches at Armathwaite School, sorted all the shoes out and packed their car full of the them. They then drove up to Edinburgh to hand them over to the “Step In My Shoes” appeal.

The two spent a while talking to the volunteers finding out more about their work. Edinburgh Cares was initially set up in September 2015 in response to the Syrian war crisis but now helps wherever there is a need.

Since it started, Edinburgh Cares has delivered aid to Croatia, Serbia,

Hungary, Slovenia, Macedonia, Greece, Syria and Turkey.

Jane said: “They [the volunteers] were so good talking with Lewis. We were there for a few hours.

“They were sharing all their experiences working in Greece supporting refugees actually helping off the boat, standing in the water chest high having babies passed to them.

“Hearing all about their stories and the issues I think when they said they were chest deep in water and had babies handed to you, I just thought I couldn’t imagine what that’s like.”

But his humanitarian efforts that continue to this day are what he cared about most.

“I remember sitting with him at his house one morning and he’d read a story about a child about the age of his son, Stan, who had been killed by his parents,” said Wes Henley, who toured with Perkins all over the world as his guitarist for more than a decade.

(AP Photo/Cinemax, File) Anonymous, ASSOCIATED PRESSFrom that statement came the beginning efforts that formed what’s now known as the Exchange Club Carl Perkins Centerfor the Prevention of Child Abuse.

“A few people put their heads together to bring the prevention center to Tennessee, and they wanted to put Carl’s name to it to give it some instant recognition,” Henley said. “At first, he wasn’t crazy about it because he wasn’t sure what good his name on it would do, but once they explained it, that his name would cause people to want to contribute, he was OK with it.”

Personally, I remember him as my fishing buddy. Much like a second father to me. We were very close.” (Photo: Morgan Timms / The Jackson Sun)

There are a number of efforts locally that help the club raise funds and awareness for the prevention of child abuse in the area. The Circle of Hope telethon each August is one of the main fundraisers.

“The first year we had it, we had the goal of $6,000,” Henley said. “It wound up raising $36,000, and Carl couldn’t believe it.

“He wouldn’t be able to believe what that telethon does now, raising more than $1 million every year, sometimes close to $2 million. And every dollar raised at that telethon each year goes straight to the programs the club sponsors.”

Perkins’ son in lawBart Swiftsaid Perkins’ humble beginnings as the child of sharecroppers in Lake County was what caused him to be so giving to people who needed it.

“As much success as he had professionally, and as much money as he made, he told me a number of times that he never wanted to forget what it felt like to be on the bottom in life,” Swift said. “He always said that he never knew, and none of us really every know, when we can be a great help to someone when they’re on the bottom in their life.

“That’s why he was so nice and generous with his time. If talking with someone or patting them on the back and saying hi made them feel like somebody, then he was glad to do it and he thought everybody should be glad to do it, because all of us are at the bottom of life at some point.”

Henley said Perkins cared nothing about how famous he was compared to how helpful he was.

“Think about it this way: When he died, his funeral was in the chapel at Lambuth University,” Henley said. “Think about the people that were there: Garth Brooks, Wynonna Judd, Johnny and June Carter Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, George Harrison from The Beatles was in Jackson, Tennessee, the governor at the time (Don Sundquist) all these people felt the need to honor this man when he died.

“But he’d have no problem stopping and helping a child who tripped and fell or someone crossing the street who had no means or opportunity to help him back. That was the kind of man he was.”

Other local events tied to the Exchange Club include the Blue Suede Dinner and Auction, which will have its 24th annual edition this year, featuring award winning country music singer Neal McCoy on Feb. 24 at the Carl Perkins Civic Center on South Highland Avenue in Jackson. Coats for Kids is a drive for warm coats in November for underprivileged children in West Tennessee. Rusty Mac Adopt A Teen is another annual drive to supply Christmas gifts for teenagers who live in homes that might not be able to give them gifts, named for local radio host Rusty Mac, who had a heart for teenagers. Santa Cause is another effort at Christmastime to give to the Exchange Club in honor of someone else.

Now, representatives of Sharing And Caring of Benton County are trying to find sponsors for all the children before Thanksgiving, said Director Irene Medrano.

Medrano said 1,909 families applied this year, a 13 percent increase over 2008. The number of children the organization will sponsor this year is up to 5,086, a 15 percent increase over 2008.

Heather Woodmancy, a mother of five who lives in Gravette, said she applied this year because her husband has had a hard time getting construction jobs.

“The work here has been down tremendously,” she said.

Woodmancy said she is hoping for winter blankets, as well as games for her son and dolls for her daughters.

“We’d be grateful for anything,” Woodmancy said. “I think it is an absolute blessing that our community does this.”

Medrano said each child will get up to $100 worth of presents. Those presents usually include necessities such as clothes and shoes, plus one gift the child wished for.

Medrano said income guidelines for the program are roughly the same as requirements for food stamps.

A family of four qualifies for assistance from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly called food stamps, with a gross monthly income of $2,297 or less. The amount was wrong in a story in Thursday’s editions.

Medrano said a wider range of people applied this year than everbefore. Many were unemployed, while some had their work hours cut.

Some made $60,
polo shirts in bulk Caring Applications Spike
000 last year but had no income this year.

Some grandparents were raising their grandchildren while mothers worked full time but could not aord day care, Medrano said.

“It was just difficult all around,” Medrano said.

The spike in need is not just at Sharing and Caring.

Barbara Whitlow, director of social services for the Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas, said she has seen at least a 25 percent increase in the number of clients this year.

Many of those are asking for help for the first time, and many lost their jobs this year, Whitlow said.

Medrano said she hopes to have sponsors for all the children by Thanksgiving, so shoppers can take advantage of holiday sales.

The sponsors will get a list of what to buy. They will deliver the items to the Benton County Fairgrounds.

The families will pick up the items on Dec. 11, Medrano said.

The program is for children up to age 18, as long as they’re in school, Medrano said.

water polo store Career Advice from Actor Barry Keoghan

teri polo Career Advice from Actor Barry Keoghan

Dublin born Barry Keoghan is poised to make his huge breakthrough this year with no less than four of his features and a short on release including O’Connor’s ‘King of the Travellers’, Rob and Ronan Burke’s ‘Standby’ and recent IFTA winner Cathy Brady’s ‘Wasted’. There’s also the inevitable attention that will surround him as of one of the new additions to season four of Love/Hate. The young actor was sworn to secrecy on joining up with Nidge co. except to comment on the crowds of fans swarming the set on location in Dublin as “the fun part of it” and “an experience”.

IFTN caught up with Barry as he preps to shoot the feature ’71’ with BAFTA nominated director Yann DeMange in England as he spoke to this week’s ‘Making the Cut’ about staying unique in the casting room, fruit as his secret weapon on set and how he prepares for his roles. Then I get onto set and get some breakfast. I like eating fruit on set, I always say I’m like Aladdin on set walking around with pockets full of fruit! Another thing I always do is bring a notebook to set with me for every character, and there’s a whole life in that notebook so I usually go over that. It’s like tuning in, like a guitar, just staying in character. The notebook is full of random questions, stuff about school years, questions about the scene, the whole lot. It’s like a little planet of this one character. Everything is in that notebook and it really helps! There’s so much that goes on behind the scenes on set that I think people don’t realise who aren’t in the industry. The last big feature that I worked on was Stay with Aidan Quinn, Taylor Schilling and Brian Gleeson, that was filmed down in Connemara which was deadly! To pass the time on set, I’m not the type that just goes into my trailer. I love talking to others, and learning from others. Sometimes I’ll even ask the crew if they need a hand! The best piece of advice I’ve received from both Wiebke (von Carolsfield, director of ‘Stay’) and Cathy Brady is just to ‘Listen’ from others and when on set. There’s a lot more involved, from the homework that you have to do with your character, to the research and the script work. That’s my favourite part, is doing all the character work. Then you’ve to go through all the rehearsals, stunt training if there is any, costume fittings. With that film I got introduced to Kirsten [Sheridan], Lance [Daly], Shimmy [Marcus] and all the gang at The Factory. I did the three day workshop there in the Actors Studio and that developed my skills a lot. That’s where I met Maureen [Hughes] and it was she who introduced me to Derick [Mulvey, his agent of MacFarlane Chard], and he’s got me all my work and he’s been a good man. The D Man I call him, but he’s been great!

A good tip for acting which I learnt which I always say is to tease the audience, they didn’t come to see a show and tell so let them chase what’s going on. Don’t give it away. Another tip for auditions I’ve found is just being yourself when you’re meeting all the casting people and directors, it makes you more unique and stands you apart from all the others walking through the room.

There have been a lot of people who have helped the most in my career for me to get where I am todayI came through as an actor with Mark [O’Connor] first and he’s kept me in his three films, but I’ve a lot of people to thank, everyone that I’ve mentioned like Kirsten, Cathy, Lance, Shimmy. They’ve been more like mentors than directors, they really help and they’re really nice. Louise Kiely [casting director] especially as well, for seeing me for ‘Stay’ and stuff like that. For letting someone else who’s coming to see you in a film to forget their problems and enter another world, and letting them enjoy that for the ninety minutes or whatever. Travel is a big thing as well, I went to Sweden with Lance for ‘Life’s A Breeze’ and that was mad. You learn a lot from travelling and you get to see a lot of places that I didn’t think I’d get to see. All my roles for me as well have been a bit different, with every role you go through a little experience and there’s dark moments that you remember with that role but I think that’s good, means you’re getting deep into the character. I watched one, ‘Inside Game’, just yesterday and that’s about game designers and the stress they’re under up until the day the games are released. That stuff is really interesting, and I like studying human behaviour, real people and how they react to situations. Any ‘Behind the Scenes’ features as well, you get to see what happens after they say ‘Cut’. ‘Inside The Actors Studio’ as well, I love that.

Instead, a car pulled up at the intersection of Exeter and Pratt streets and either passengers took the boy, or the boy got into the car. Police did not immediately specify those circumstances.

Police described the car as a possible 2010 four door,

Steve Bartlett: The Deep EndNot because of the CRA’s income tax deadline is pending or because my Toronto Maple Leafs appear poised to make the playoffs.

No, I dread an upcoming trip my wife and some childhood friends are taking. They’re heading to Mexico, and while they are eating nachos and sipping Corona, and I’ll be running the house alone for a week.

She’s been asking how I’ll manage, how the kids will get to school or daycare on time, how I’m going to fare brushing my daughter’s beautiful long hair each morning, and how much Domino’s Pizza they’ll be eating.

She has been saying things like, “Wait until ‘The Week The Women Went'” or “Who’s going to do all this for you? You’re getting your mother in to help, aren’t you?”

A recent incident seemed to fan her fire.

I encourage my kids to be as independent as possible, so before I took them to the grocery store last Sunday, I asked that they get themselves dressed.

“And then we’ll head to the store to give Mommy a break,” I added.

In a few minutes, they were ready and rarin’.

I love grocery shopping and trying to fill the cart with foods that are both tasty and healthy.

My kids, on the other hand, like filling it with foods that are tasty but unhealthy.

That leads to conversations, like “If you bring Cap’n Crunch into the house,
ralp lauren polo Cape Breton Post
Daddy will eat the whole box today” and “Fruit Roll ups are not considered fruit under Canada’s food guide.”

My daughter, who’s four, was putting a lot of energy into unsuccessfully loading up the cart with cookies, candy and sweet cereal.

“I’m hot,” she said after a long period of criss crossing the aisles and looking for banned substances.

I suggested she take off her jacket and then patiently waited for her to pass it to me.

My patience turned to horror as she unzipped.

She wasn’t wearing a shirt!

And she was about to prance around Sobey’s, searching for any processed food containing fructose, glucose, sucralose and all those other “ose” substances in only winter boots and leggings!

As Shaggy used to tell Scooby, “Zoinks!”

I imagined the PA announcement: “Would the Father of the Year who owns the half dressed child please fetch her in front of the Chips Ahoy! display? And bring paper towels.”

I also envisioned scolding looks from the other shoppers, one being a crotchety type who would raise an eyebrow, point at me and scream, “That poor girl’s dad is the editor of our newspaper!

polo hoodies cheap Cannasure to launch comprehensive coverage program for marijuana industry Feb

In the burgeoning business sector for legal cannabis, it is a highly anticipated and much needed development.The firm’s program supported by Topa Insurance Group of Calabasas, Calif. will offer coverage lines in property, general liability, products liability, crop and excess liability. The program is designed to support primary industry operations, which include dispensaries, cultivators, processors/manufacturers, ancillary businesses (which could be any supporting industry, like manufacturers of marijuana packaging or grow lights), landlords and testing laboratories.”We are excited to announce that Cannasure recently finalized the development of a cannabis program that will offer all lines of coverage to medical and recreational business owners,” said Cannasure CEO Patrick McManamon in a statement. “Our program is backed by Topa Insurance Group, a leading boutique property casualty insurer and will provide enhanced and comprehensive coverages. Initially, the program will be offered on a non admitted basis; however, we are exploring admitted opportunities in target states.”Thomas Haren, a lawyer with Frantz Ward LLP in Cleveland working with aspiring marijuana businesses in Ohio,
big mens polo shirts Cannasure to launch comprehensive coverage program for marijuana industry Feb
noted that the development of insurance programs is a critical element in not just legitimizing the industry but enabling its ability to flourish like any other business sector. There are few programs out in the market today, he said, though more are coming online as states have been requiring these businesses to be insured as part of their marijuana programs.”Access to insurance is important for these business owners because it’s mandated by rule, but also just because is makes good business sense,” Haren said. “With a lot of major carriers not serving the industry, we’re seeing a lot of smaller, specialized insurers pop up to fill that need.”Cannasure’s formative stages came between 2009 and 2010, when McManamon was essentially running the firm himself after branching out from his father’s business, McManamon Insurance. The firm has been working as a MGA and wholesale broker and was working on getting its own program going with assistance from Lloyd’s of London, but they faced a lot of challenges along the way, as McManamon recently explained in a feature in Crain’s.The development of this insurance program has been in development for quite some time. McManamon told Crain’s he expects to write more than $1 million in premiums per month in 2018 because of this new program.Just last week, the firm hiredKieran O’Rourke who most recently served with AmTrust Financial Services prior to joining Cannasure to lead the firm’s MGA underwriting platform. He will be the manager of the new program.”The cannabis industry is evolving at an unprecedented rate, and because of this so are the industry specific risk factors and operational demands,” said McManamon in a statement. “Since we opened our doors in 2010, Cannasure has been in the trenches with clients understanding their business, challenges, opportunities as well as the regulatory requirements. Best rated carrier that has truly taken the time to understand this industry and is committed to bringing forward relevant coverages (terms and conditions) that support the ever changing cannabis industry. Because of this, we are excited to launch our program for new business submission effective Feb. 1.”McManamon declined to share his finances but told Crain’s Cannasure saw revenues grow 60% in 2017. They’ve grown 350% since 2014. And McManamon said he now targets at least 40% growth annually “for the next several years,

polo ties Cancun beyond the hotels

polo boots for big kids Cancun beyond the hotels

Hotel SearchVisitors are often and easily drawn to Cancun by the enticing all inclusive resorts and beautiful beaches that make up the city’s Hotel Zone. With comfortable, plentiful amenities and all food and drink desires a short walk away, it would be easy to go an entire vacation without leaving your property. But that would be a shame, as there are many wonderful things to see, do and eat once you venture from Cancun’s main drag, Boulevard Kukulkan.

Sopes and serenades

Visiting Mexico and not eating quality Mexican food might as well be a cardinal sin, whether you find it at a well established restaurant or happen upon a hidden culinary gem.

In downtown Cancun, spend an evening among the Cancunense at local treasure Julia Mia. The upscale restaurant provides service and presentation equivalent to what you’d find in a resort, with a twist of home style cooking.

Expect to be serenaded by mariachi performers while you dine, an added feature that would perhaps be cheesy if they weren’t so darn talented.

The interior and exterior design of the eatery is nothing short of magical, giving visitors the sensation of dining both in a rain forest and your best friend’s backyard.

Its food offerings, specifically the sopes (meat, beans and other toppings on a thick, tortilla like base), are as authentically Mexican as you can get, and the menu includes plenty of amazing mild options, if you’re a spice wimp like me.

My personal favorite eating experience while in the area was at Polo’s Mango Cafe on the island of Isla Mujeres.

If La Cueva del Chango was worth driving to, then I would breaststroke the 31 miles of turquoise water from Cancun to Isla Mujeres in order to eat at this hole in the wall establishment.

Boasting fewer than a dozen tables and adorned with old license plates and small paintings, Mango Cafe is full of character, and owner Polo Avila is regularly changing and updating his modest menu with inventive and delicious twists on Mexican classics. Case in point: his green apple guacamole. A self proclaimed guacamole fiend,

I can sincerely say that this was the best I’ve ever tasted. Do yourself a favor and try it, too.

Practice your Spanish by haggling with the sales folk, when appropriate. It’ll be much cheaper than the hotel gift shop and will likely be higher quality and made in Mexico.

Downtown Cancun has some wonderful malls that are easily accessible by city bus; Playa del Carmen boasts many trendy boutiques along its pedestrian area, Fifth Avenue; and Isla Mujeres is home to countless independent vendors, each one proclaiming to offer the “best” version of their products.

Taking the plunge

Although your pool and strip of beach are sure to be lovely, it’s worth mixing up your experience by spending a few hours at one of the Yucatan Peninsula’s numerous cenotes, natural sinkholes formed by collapsed limestone bedrock that reveal groundwater pools. The fresh water is filtered naturally, resulting in very clear and beautiful swimming holes.

Riviera Maya’s Cenote Azul, in particular, makes for the perfect afternoon excursion, especially for families.

For $6 per person ($4 for children), families can enjoy swimming and snorkeling among an abundance of friendly fish.

The cenote’s pools have a great range in depth, from ankle deep (water shoes are recommended for navigating the slippery stone bottom) to dive worthy.

A 15 foot rock ledge makes for a thrilling but safe jump into deep, unobstructed water and various caves to swim into and explore.

Lifejackets are available for anyone with lesser swimming ability or for those who want to enjoy a leisurely float.

There is also a great trail surrounding Cenote Azul. Lined with tropical flowers, roaming lizards and Mayan inspired decor, the trail offers a short, simple and relaxing hike.

The entire trail circles back to the entrance, so it is a great way to give kids a sense of freedom and explore on their own without the risk of getting lost.

usa mens water polo team Cancer warning labels on products

brands like polo Cancer warning labels on products

For several months I have enjoyed recording digital music files through my keyboard, thanks to a simple device that connects it to my laptop. But it wasn’t until recently that I discovered that the following label came with it:WARNING: This product contains chemicals, including lead, known to the State of California to cause cancer, and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.I freaked out. How could a set of cables attached to a small blue blinking cylinder cause cancer? The USB connector and keyboard inputs seemed harmless enough, and I hadn’t felt obvious symptoms while making music. Was I risking my life for the sake of my four person fan base?So I called the company, M Audio. Apparently, manufacturers have to put this label on certain products to comply with Proposition 65, a California law that requires a warning on anything containing lead or other hazardous substances found to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.Under this law, whose full title is The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, warnings must be placed on products with a chemicals present in amounts larger than what the California government has decided is a “safe harbor number.”These requirements are pretty strict. For example, for a cancer causing chemical, according to the state’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, “a person exposed to the chemical at the ‘no significant risk level’ for 70 years would not have more than a ‘one in 100,000’ chance of developing cancer as a result of that exposure.” So, if there would be more than one excess case of cancer out of 100,000 people over a period of 70 years because of exposure to that amount of the substance, slap on that label.It’s not just computing equipment.The consequences for violating Proposition 65 can be pretty fierce. One Los Angeles company had to pay a $10 million fine for failing to label lead tainted lunch boxes (they sold 100,000 of them to the state health department), the Los Angeles Times reported earlier this year.Still, does that mean I have to wash my hands every time I touch the cord? Mark Williams, spokesperson for M Audio, says, “No! My gosh, no!”In general, he says, electronics products carry this label because of the materials used in circuit boards, such as lead, for example. It’s not like there’s pesticide sprayed on the surface, he says.In fact, according to the company’s official statement on the issue, a device with a lead warning might not have any lead at all:Even in situations where an electronics device is completely free of lead, there is always a chance that standard third party manufactured accessories packaged with the device (such as a power cable, USB cable, or power supply) may contain trace amounts of lead. Out of professional diligence and a commitment to fully comply with the law, M Audio properly marks all applicable products with a Prop 65 lead warning.Maybe people are used to seeing these labels by now. Williams said mine was the first call he’s received on the issue in his five months in media relations at the company.So, now I will make my techno versions of acoustic indie songs in relative peace.Editor Note: Medical news is a popular but sensitive subject rooted in science.

I assuming you weren chewing on pencils in school THAT long ago.pencil is a writing or drawing instrument consisting of a thin stick of pigment (usually graphite, but can also be coloured pigment or charcoal) and clay, usually encased in a thin wood cylinder. The archetypal pencil may have been the stylus, which was a thin metal stick, often made from lead and used for scratching on papyrus, a form of early paper. They were used extensively by the ancient Egyptians and Romans.Are we trying to make people live forever? We do not have the room or resource for humans that live until 150 years old. Death is required. As horrible as that sounds, people need to die sooner or later.Frankly, a large portion of the population does nothing to add to the overall good. I talking about the increase in criminals and stupid kids that will never go anywhere. A bigger population just makes it worse by having less to go around, hindering the production of better people.I know this all sounds bad, even fascist in a way but its a fact that needs to be considered.Let people live they way they want and take the risks they want as long it doesn pass on that risk to someone else.

However, if you think the information you reading on Wikipedia is bogus, check to see if the writing is sourced. There will be a source number in line with the verbiage and a corresponding source at the bottom of the page for either a link or a reference to the paper source.This whole concept being passed around, especially by schools, of Wikipedia being labeled as a bad resource is nonsense. Now, that doesn mean I would go write a paper and source Wikipedia, but I would be willing to go to Wikipedia to find sources.
