Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRe Feb. 27 letter, “Why mention race in Union presidency?”: There’s a profound lack of understanding exemplified from Mr. John Metallo.The Gazette did the right thing in mentioning that Union College’s new president is the first African-American to hold that position. Why? Because blacks have been an oppressed minority in our history and it’s taking a long time to overcome and correct that history.So whenever there’s evidence that such is being done, we need to be made aware of it and applaud it. Apparently and sadly, Mr. Metallo isn’t able to acknowledge that reality and that history.Michael FosterNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationPuccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists

NZ Herald 24 January 2020Family First Comment: “freedom of expression must never be at the expense of the right to protect children and families from offensive and inappropriate behaviour. Public nudity will offend against generally prevailing community standards of decency. Most families don’t want their children being confronted by naked men and women or ‘adult behaviour’… It is not for those families to ‘get out of the way’.”Lobby group Family First has put its support behind a Taupō mother who said she was “horrified” by naked swimmers in the district.Katrina Payne said 14 naked men and women at a popular swimming spot on Monday night deserved to be fined, after they arrived at Spa Thermal Park, where she swam with her 13-year-old daughter Hollie.The public reserve is in need of a “g-string ban” according to other concerned Taupō mothers who spoke to NZME earlier this month.In a public statement, Family First’s national director Bob McCoskrie has called on councils “to amend their bylaws to clarify clearly that nudity is banned from public places”.He said: “freedom of expression must never be at the expense of the right to protect children and families from offensive and inappropriate behaviour.”“Public nudity will offend against generally prevailing community standards of decency.”In his opinion: “Most families don’t want their children being confronted by naked men and women or ‘adult behaviour’… It is not for those families to ‘get out of the way’.”“It is also important to note that family nakedness in the home is completely different to stranger nakedness in public… These ‘show-ponies’ should be told to cover up and do it at home.”Taupō mayor David Tewavas told NZME today councillors hadn’t discussed the issue and it was “a matter of the common courtesies of life”.“The town is absolutely jam-packed with people, chock-a-block with visitors at the moment.”http://nzh.tw/12303088 (behind paywall)Keep up with family issues in NZ.

Pork with Tropical Sauce.The boneless pork chop in this recipe is broiled but try giving it a boost of flavor by cooking it on the grill. No matter how it is cooked, the sauce, which contains tropical fruit, orange juice, vinegar, spices, and pineapple, provides for a sweet, but spicy taste that blends well with the pork. Even though dried tropical fruit is used in this sauce, a slice of fresh mango would be an attractive addition to this dish.Nutrition facts * Calories412 * Total Fat (g)11 * Saturated Fat (g)4, * Monounsaturated Fat (g)5, * Polyunsaturated Fat (g)1, * Cholesterol (mg)77, * Sodium (mg)257, * Carbohydrate (g)43, * Total Sugar (g)34, * Fiber (g)3, * Protein (g)32, * Vitamin C (DV%)28, * Calcium (DV%)8, * Iron (DV%)10, * Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.Ingredients:4 boneless pork top loin chops, cut 1 inch thickSalt and ground black pepper2 teaspoons olive oil2 teaspoons curry powder1 teaspoon ground ginger1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon1 cup snipped assorted dried tropical fruit (such as mango, papaya, and pineapple) or tropical blend mixed dried fruit bits1/2 cup orange juice1 tablespoon cider vinegar2 tablespoons pineapple preserves Tweet Share 41 Views no discussions Food & DiningLifestyle Pork with Tropical Sauce. by: – July 29, 2011 Recipe source: Better Homes and Gardens Share Sharing is caring!

Authorities are reporting that a Florida man claimed that he attempted to break into a home because his horse got into the homeowner’s yard.The incident occurred Thursday at a home in Pasco County.The homeowner identified as Steve Ferguson told authorities that he caught the suspect, Lonnie Maddox, breaking into his home and confronted him. Maddox told Ferguson that it was actually his horse who broke into the home and that he was only trying to get her.When authorities arrived, Maddox then told them that the horse wandered into Ferguson’s yard through a broken fence so he went after it. Once inside the yard Maddox says he became curious about the inside of the home because he was considering renting it.Surveillance video from the home shows Maddox walking around the home with the horse. Maddox then tries to get into the home through the front door but when he was unsuccessful, he then breaks a window.Authorities found the horse several blocks away from the home but it was later discovered that the horse did not belong to Maddox.The horse has since been returned to it’s rightful owner while Maddox was taken into custody and charged with burglary of a dwelling.
For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: There is something different about the 2019 Indian Premier League season, right from the auction till the tournament. The IPL auction, normally a January or a February affair will be held on December 18 and 19 this year. In 2009 and 2014, the Assembly elections forced the IPL to be played in South Africa and partly in the United Arab Emirates respectively. In 2019, the General Elections will once again be held in India around the April-May period, which could mean that the IPL could be played on foreign shores from March end to the starting of May, majority of which could be in South Africa or the UAE. However, 2019 is the year of the World Cup and this has forced the marquee Twenty20 tournament to be consigned to a mere sideshow.The main reason will be that for the first time in the history of the tournament, the IPL will be played before the World Cup. In 2011 and in 2015, the tournament was played after the end of the World Cup. In 2011, the World Cup final ended on May 2 and almost a week later, the first match between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders was played in Chepauk. In 2015, with the World Cup being played according to the Australian home summer which starts from October to March, the IPL could be played from April till May. However, this time, since the World Cup is being played in England, a country that has their international summer run from May to September, the dynamics of player priorities and commitment has resulted in a massive change.Read More | IPL 2019 auction: 346 players to go under the hammerPriorities changeThe BCCI are waiting for the General Election dates to be announced before they get moving on finalising venue and dates of the IPL. However, the preparation for the World Cup has forced many of the Cricket Boards to issue statements on their availability.Read More | Yorker is still the best ball: Steffan Jones, RR fast bowling coachCricket Australia has clearly said that players will not be available for the tournament from May 1. With their Sheffield Shield season coming to a close in March and with an upcoming ODI series against India after that, players like Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Starc have opted out of the tournament. Even the England Cricket Board has decided to protect players. With the World Cup beginning in the end of May, most international players will have to attend preparatory camps. Even the Committee of Administrators has said Indian players will have to attend a preparatory camp 15 days before the start of the tournament. Only New Zealand’s cricket board has given an assurance of players being available for the entire tournament.Read More | IPL 2019 auction: Northeast states, Puducherry players registerPotential of low TRPsIn the past, when IPL was played after the World Cup and in overseas conditions, TRPs ie Television viewership has declined. In 2014, the first week of IPL which was played in the UAE recorded the lowest TRP for a long time. In 2011, the tournament did not have the best TRPs due to possible viewer fatigue after India’s glorious World Cup campaign. In 2009, due to the General Elections, the ratings declined by close to 20% at the start of the season.This is the first time that the dual whammy of General Elections and World Cup at the same time has conspired to hurt the IPL. With 346 players in the auction, this event will see no Indian player in the elite base price of Rs 2 crore. The absence of star overseas players has also resulted in a lack of buzz. However, this could be the time when India truly explores the depth of their massive talent pool and give other youngsters a chance to shine on the big stage. Maybe, the 2019 Indian Premier League could truly be THE Indian Premier League.
