…Of Catfish and Winning Streaks

first_img InspirationBy Charles TowneWhen I was just a kid back in Illinois on the Fox River I had a nice little business going where I caught fish and sold them to the folks in my hometown.  My technique, called “grubbing” was a tad unorthodox, but successful. I knew how those big, old blue catfish dearly loved to hide in holes in the riverbank… so I would swim along and when I discovered one of those holes I would stick my hand in there and feel around.   If the catfish was home, I would grab him, and somebody was soon going to be eating catfish.  One day I had caught several fish in this manner and was dragging them behind me on a stringer.   As I moved along with just my head above the surface I noticed a man standing on the riverbank watching me.“Hey kid,” he shouted, “what’cha doing there?”   I called back to him, “Catching catfish!”Charles TowneHe laughed, “Why son, you are surely wasting your time,” he exclaimed, “you can’t catch fish that way!”Just then I found a hole and running my hand in there I soon had another catfish. I stood up and made a big show of putting that fish on the stringer along with the others I had caught. I called to the man, “you are probably right mister, but I gotta keep trying!”When I looked at that fellow, he was standing there staring at me with his mouth hanging open like he was catching flies. That was the first time I ever saw anybody literally struck speechless. It’s a good thing to remember that any fool can point out why a certain thing can’t be done, but It’s not a good thing to interrupt the man, or boy, that’s doing it.Live fully,Love openly,And make a difference, todayCharles Towne is an author, longtime resident of Apopka, and a member of  Insp!re Church. His book on caregiving “Who Cares” will be published soon.  TAGSCharles TowneInspiration Previous articleOn This Day: Hawaii Becomes a StateNext articleSummer Olympics Medal Count Update – Day 15 Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The Anatomy of Fear Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your name here Please enter your comment!

Fidel Castro on Ukraine and Gaza

first_imgFidel CastroFidel Castro writes a regular column for Granma. The Havana newspaper is named for the ship that in 1956 carried the revolutionary leader and his band of courageous young fighters to Cuba to launch an armed struggle that liberated the island from the bloody dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista and his U.S. backers. Below is his commentary of July 18.This morning the cables were full of reports about the unheard-of news that a Malaysia Airlines passenger plane had been hit at an altitude of 10,100 meters as it flew over Ukrainian territory, along a route controlled by the war-hungry government of chocolate king Petro Poroshenko.Cuba, which has always stood in solidarity with the Ukrainian people, and in the difficult days of the Chernobyl tragedy provided medical care to the many children affected by the accident’s harmful radiation, and is always willing to continue doing so, cannot refrain from expressing our repudiation of the action of the anti-Russian, anti-Ukrainian and pro-imperialist government.At the same time, coinciding with the Malaysian aircraft crime, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, head of the nuclear state, ordered his army to invade the Gaza Strip, where, over the last several days, hundreds of Palestinians have died, many of them children. The president of the United States supported the action, describing the repugnant act as legitimate defense.Obama does not support David against Goliath, but rather Goliath against David. As is known, young men and women from the Israeli people, well prepared for productive work, are being exposed to a death without honor, without glory. I am not aware of the Palestinians’ military strategy, but I know that a combatant prepared to die can defend even the ruins of a building, as long as he has his rifle, as the heroic defenders of Stalingrad demonstrated.I only wish to express my solidarity with the heroic people who defend the last sliver remaining of what was their homeland for thousands of years.Fidel Castro RuzFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Star journalist sued by head of electoral commission

first_img Follow the news on Iraq Reporters Without Borders condemns the libel suit that Faraj Haidari, the president of Iraq’s electoral commission, has brought against Hashem Hassan, a journalist who once had a very high profile and who was jailed under Saddam Hussein. He now heads the University of Baghdad’s media department.Haidari is demanding 2 billion dinars (1.2 million euros) in damages for one of the articles Hassan wrote for the 4 May issue of the newspaper Al-Mashreq. It questioned the commission’s legitimacy and professionalism, referred to corruption allegations and accused it of wasting public funds. “It is not reasonable to spend millions of dollars on people who work for just one month every four years, during elections,” the article said.Hassan has been summoned to appear before a court in the southeast Baghdad district of Rusafa tomorrow. Although the lawsuit was filed on 11 May, he was unaware of it until he received the summons on 19 May. This has given him little time to prepare his defence. The amount of damages sought by Haidari is permitted by Iraq’s publications law.Reporters Without Borders regards this prosecution as a direct violation of free speech and media freedom and calls for its withdrawal. It would be unacceptable if Hassan were convicted over an opinion piece. The press freedom organization will pay close attention to the way the Iraqi courts handle this case.

Division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice KK Tated heard petitioner’s advocates SB Talekar and Pradnya Talekar and concluded that the High Court through its Registrar General, and the Principal District Judge, Kolhapur ought to have been included as respondents. Thus, direction was passed to add both as respondents in the matter. The petitioner sought directions for the premises of old District and Sessions Judge, Kolhapur, for being used as an extension of Chhatrapati Pramila Raje District Hospital, Kolhapur to combat the crisis triggered by Covid-19. He reasoned that although there are other private owned super-speciality hospitals in the district, CPR hospital is the only government hospital having super speciality facilities. It is the only hospital available for the poor and downtrodden in the district to approach in case of a health emergency. The petition states- “The Old District & Sessions Court, Kolhapur is located just opposite to the CPR hospital. As such it will be convenient for the doctors and other hospital staffers to segregate the regular patients and Covid-19 patients” Moreover, it is contended by the District Magistrate and the Chairperson of the District Disaster Management Authority requested the District and Sessions Judge to allow use of the old premises which are lying vacant. However, the said request was forwarded to the Building Committee of the High Court but was rejected on May 8. It is also stated in the PIL that the District Magistrate has requisitioned 20 hostels to be designated as Covid Care Centres, 140 schools and colleges across the district have been converted into quarantine centres. Thus, the administration cannot adopt a separate attitude for requisitioning old court premises, the petitioners argue. Thus, directions are sought to convert the old district court premises as an extension of the CPR Hospital and to submit a report regarding steps taken by the hospital to segregate Covid and Non-Covid cases.

Renowned gay rights attorney and environmentalist self-immolates at Brooklyn park

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Notable gay rights lawyer and environmental activist David Buckel was discovered burned to death in an apparent suicide in popular Brooklyn park early Saturday morning.A jogger on a run through Prospect Park at around 6:15 a.m. spotted a fire on the grass, police sources said.The jogger flagged down a New York Police Department cop who then approached the blaze and discovered a person was burning, the sources said.Before self-immolating, Buckel,60, stowed his identification and a suicide note nearby, the sources added.In the noted Buckel said his “early death by fossil fuel” was a protest against damage to the environment, according to the New York Daily News.The location where Buckel decided to take his own life was only a few blocks away from his home just off the park.Buckel earned acclaim when he championed a lawsuit involving a transgender man named Brandon Teena who was slain in Nebraska.The man’s life story was adapted to the big screen in the indie film hit “Boys Don’t Cry,”He also spearheaded same-sex marriage cases in numerous states around the country.Lamda Legal, where Buckel served as its project director, released a statement calling the counselor “a visionary.”“This is a tremendous loss for our Lambda Legal family, but also for the entire movement for social justice,” according to the statement. “David was an indefatigable attorney and advocate, and also a dedicated and loving friend to so many. He will be remembered for his kindness, devotion, and vision for justice.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Pressure blamed for high turnover of call centre staff

first_imgPressure blamed for high turnover of call centre staffOn 26 Sep 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Intense working conditions are the main cause for turnover rates as high as 80 per cent in some call centres.A survey of more than 120 organisations and 250 call centres published by Incomes Data Services last week revealed the average rate was 20 per cent, slightly higher than the previous year’s figure of 18 per cent.Of those questioned, 44 per cent claimed the intensity of the call centre environment was a major factor and around 39 per cent blamed competition from other employers for staff disloyalty.Larger call centres with more than 150 employees were more than twice as likely as smaller ones to report retention problems, and the numbers reporting turnover difficulties were greatest in Scotland and lowest in Wales.Suggestions for improving working conditions included integrating other tasks to allow agents periods away from the telephone and providing a games room, gym, restaurants and better parking facilities.Report author Sarah Miller said, “Changing job descriptions so that people got a varied workload rather than spending all their time on the phone helped with retention.”Other measures taken to attract and keep staff included extending career development opportunities, more flexible working options and offering permanent contracts to temporary staff.The survey found there was a problem with recruitment with 30 per cent of call centres and employee turnover problems in 40 per cent.The survey of employers such as Transco, BT, the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and Axa Insurance also revealed a massive expansion in the call centre industry.Dr Michael Reddy, clinical psychologist and chairman of the Independent Counselling and Advisory Service, said, “To cut turnover, better support and training for team leaders is key. Some call centres have also introduced counsellors to support the needs of agents.”www.incomesdata.co.ukBy Richard Staineslast_img read more
