Commit and Practice Their Values Smart Women Know, Commit and Practice Their Values July 17, 2009 By Joy Chudacoff Leave a Comment My son Jack recently joined Cub Scouts here in our community. His leader is an older man, sort of a grandfather type who is very wise and shares some interesting information with the boys (did you know that if you in need of the police, you should dial 311 and not 411?). When a boy becomes a Cub Scout, he receives a book about what it means to take on this role. An early part of the book is about following a of values. They encourage the boys to know, commit, and practice these values. This got me thinking about how Smart Women know, commit, and practice their own

Bill To Abolish Lottery Panel Clears Arkansas House

LITTLE ROCK The Arkansas House on Tuesday gave final passage and sent to the governor a bill that would abolish the nine member state Lottery Commission and make the state lottery part of the executive branch of government.House members voted 84 3 to approve Senate Bill 7 by Sen. Jimmy Hickey, R Texarkana, which passed in the Senate earlier this month in a 34 0 vote. The bill would put the lottery under the control of the state Department of Finance and Administration.A spokesman for Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Tuesday the governor will sign the bill into law.Arkansas voters approved a constitutional amendment to allow
replica ray bans a state lottery to fund college scholarships in November 2008. The lottery launched in September 2009, under the control of a commission that was set up to operate independently from the executive branch.The lottery has funded college scholarships for more than 30,000 Arkansas students in each of the past four fiscal years, but the Legislature has twice lowered scholarship amounts to compensate for declining lottery revenue.Rep. Robin Lundstrum, R Springdale, who presented the bill in the House, said there is "a need to change direction to correct a critical situation accountability to the people and our ability to continue to provide scholarships."Reps. Fred Love, D Little Rock, Eddie Armstrong, D North Little Rock, and Joe Jett, D Success, voted against the bill. Love said later that no one had adequately explained what DF would do differently from the Lottery Commission and that he was concerned the lottery would lose its independence."Hopefully, I’m wrong, but I think once you take something that’s an independent body and bring it under the purview of an executive branch it can get politicized," he said.Hickey said Tuesday the change is needed to address declining lottery revenue."The historical data actually points to the fact we used to have $97 million coming in, and what we’re estimating right now is maybe $73 or $74 million for this year. Whenever you look at those longer term trends like that, I believe that’s enough to acknowledge that something needs to change and we need to get hold of it," he said.As to
cheap ray bans what DF would do differently,
discount ray bans Hickey said, "I expect we’ll find some efficiencies, possibly through procurement, personnel and maybe some other marketing type things that can be put together."The House voted 83 3 to approve SB 230 by Sen. Larry Teague, D Nashville, which would require wineries to collect local taxes on direct shipments of wine. The bill passed previously in the Senate and now goes to the governor.House members voted 92 0 to approve SB 227 by Sen. Missy Irvin, R Mountain View, under which a person would commit criminal impersonation if he or she used a motor vehicle with a decal or emblem that made the vehicle appear to be a law enforcement vehicle with the intent of impersonating a law enforcement officer. The bill passed previously in the Senate and now goes to the governor.The House voted 96 0 to approve Senate Bill 4 by Sen. John Cooper, R Jonesboro, which would allow drug manufacturers to provide terminally ill patients access to investigational drugs, biological products and devices. The bill goes to the Senate for concurrence in a House amendment.Also Tuesday, Hutchinson signed into law HB 1183 by Rep. Bill Gossage, R Ozark, which will require every public high school and every public charter school serving high school students in Arkansas to offer a course in computer science.Requiring the teaching of computer science in schools is part of Hutchinson’s agenda for the session. The governor has said the measure will make Arkansans better prepared for 21st century jobs and make the state more attractive to businesses.The measure does not make computer science a requirement for graduation.Elsewhere Tuesday, the House Public Health, Welfare and Labor Committee endorsed House Bill 1407 by Rep.Hammer told the committee that Arkansas hospitals already dispose of human tissue in those ways, but he said that at abortion clinics, human tissue may be discarded along with medical waste. He said his bill would prohibit that practice.No one spoke against the bill, which the committee approved in a voice vote. The bill goes next to the full House.That committee also advanced HB 1363 by Rep. Donnie Copeland, R Little Rock, which would require the state Department of Human Services to notify enrollees in the Medicaid expansion program known as the private option that coverage under the program will expire Dec. 31, 2016.Earlier the session, the Legislature approved a measure calling for the program to end on that date and to create a legislative task force to look for an alternative model, in accordance with the governor’s health care agenda.The House Judiciary Committee advanced SB 81 by Hickey, which would combine the offenses of driving while intoxicated and boating while intoxicated so that if a person were convicted of one count of each, the second
fake ray bans would count as a second offense. The bill goes to the House.That panel also endorsed SB 156 by Sen. Bart Hester, R Cave Springs, which would make it a misdemeanor for a person 18 or older to distribute sexual images of a family or household member or a person from a past or current relationship in order to harass, frighten, intimidate, threaten or abuse the victim. The bill goes to the House.The committee also advanced SB 311 by Hester, which would allow a prosecuting attorney or deputy prosecutor to list his or her address as a post office box on his or her driver’s license. The bill goes to the House.The House Education Committee advanced SB 265 by Sen. Eddie Cheatham, D Crossett, which would give legislative approval to the University of Arkansas System’s new online only eVersity to award certificates and degrees. The bill goes to the House.Articles Connexes:

This means joint accounts. All your income belongs to both of you. All your debts should be considered joint even if they aren’t legally.

Face dark
discount Michael Kors reality of sexual violence

The BBC documentary, depicting the aftermath of the brutal gang rape and murder of a student in Delhi in 2012, has premiered in the United States with Oscar winning actress Meryl Streep, Frieda Pinto and actor director Farhan Akhtar in attendance as a show of support for the film banned in India.

Streep led a solemn opening of the 2012 gang rape documentary ‘Storyville: India’s daughter’ in New York, describing the 23 year old victim as "our daughter" and emphasised that tolerance and acceptance of violence against women is worse than the brutality that dehumanises them. She was joined by a star cast including actress Pinto, Akhtar, talk show host Tina Brown and former United Nations under secretary general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief coordinator Valerie Amos among others at the US premier of the documentary produced and directed by Leslee Udwin on Monday.

"What is worse than brutality that dehumanises women? Tolerance and indifference towards it, acceptance that this is just the way things are. What is worse than rape, violence, cruelty? Tolerance for it. That’s worse," Streep said to a packed theatre at the Baruch College of the City University of New York where the premier was presented by NGO Vital Voices Global Partnership and children’s development organisation Plan International.

A solemn Streep was joined by the other celebrities and activists on stage as they began the premier by lighting a candle in the honour
replica Michael Kors handbags of the young paramedical student who died days after she was brutally gang raped by six men on December 16, 2012.

Streep, Pinto and Udwin referred to the victim by her actual name as they addressed the audience, which watched the hour long documentary in stunned silence, gasping as it heard the accused Mukesh Singh recount the inhuman incident in an unrepentant tone.

Streep said that the victim’s name was not known for days after the tragedy and she was called "India’s Daughter". "For weeks after her death, she was nameless, she was known as India’s daughter. Tonight she
Michael Kors discounts is our daughter too," Streep said. "Tonight we light the magic candle to honour the value of the girl’s short and promising life," Streep added and quoted the victim’s father who had said that in death, his daughter has shown light to a greater movement of achieving equality for women and ending discrimination.

Udwin, who
cheap Michael Kors received a thunderous applause at the conclusion of the documentary, said while the Indian government has banned the documentary, there are "many forward looking people in India who will call for change in response to this rape."

"Tonight is the start of the global campaign for India’s Daughter to end violence against women," Udwin said as she called on her family and her team on stage to thank them for the efforts that went into making the documentary. She called on nations and its citizens to join hands to bring an end to discrimination
cheap Michael Kors and violence against women, stressing that the disease plaguing the society is not rape or trafficking but inequality.

"Let us imagine a world where women are autonomous without rape, violence, genocide. Now let’s go get that!" Change of mindset is the biggest ask we can make. You can move mountains with a film. The disease is not rape or violence or trafficking, the disease is gender inequality. Let us not let one day pass without doing something to address gender inequality," Udwin said.

Pinto urged men, women, policy makers, youth, religious and political leaders from across the world to join forces and ensure violence against women is "receded into the past". "Our
Michael Kors handbags outlet pride (in economic and scientific achievement) is misplaced when there is one gender on this planet that is yet to be emancipated," she said. Pinto said the discrimination that women face is not just sexual and restricted to less developed nations but is evident, particularly in the developed world, in the "refusal to pay a woman same as a man for the same job." She said she will use the occasion to make a "call to arms" to the youth to become the "new greatest generation" that begins to make the suffering and violence against women recede in the past. While there is a sense of urgency among people today to see an end to discrimination, Pinto said it is "very easy to get discouraged and enraged when one faces dead ends, such as bans."

She said people must take hope not only from the women but also from the men in their lives who are "torchbearers" and who will speak out "vociferously" against sexism in the work place and against violence in their
Michael Kors outlet homes. "This is your fight too," she said to the men. Pinto further said that there is
cheap Michael Kors need for the leaders of the democracies like India and the US to "face the dark reality of sexual violence."

"The shame is not in admitting the existence of such violence, the shame is in the crime and in not speaking out," Pinto said. To the religious leaders and clerics, she said they have the power to grant women honour or disrespect in their faiths. "Please choose honour," Pinto said.

She called on the women "to raise each other up" and to make each others’ welfare a priority and to "never shame a woman for the choices she makes."

"Don’t judge her for her marital status, do not judge her for whom she sleeps with and please do not judge her if she simply goes out to see a movie with her friend," the ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ actress said, adding that women should refuse to internalise centuries of women hating. An emotional Pinto asked the audience to keep the young victim in their thoughts and to remember that through her sacrifice she is "saying please don’t let anyone put out my light again."Articles Connexes:
