A tale of two angry men

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Oh EJ, He is the best friend I have ever had, and because He He is I am.able to be forgiven, loved, even cherished. Blessings on you and yours, Chaz Reply Reply A porcupine personality, or…?InspirationBy Charles TowneI am embarrassed!Unlike the majority of you dear folks, I have to work at being nice. I mean, there are times that I am an old grump, and I mean a really OOOLD grump! And there are those times that I could be voted in as the original rock troll. And curmudgeon? I give new meaning to the word, curmudgeon.At my age, I should know better, and I do, and the good news is that Papa God is working His will in my life, and I might add that He is doing this with my permission.Today I took my sweet wife to a restaurant for a light lunch. They got our order messed up, charged us too much, and I thought that the guy at the counter charged us too much, and I. being the nice sweet guy that I am, told him so. He paid me back in like coin, and there we were, like two feisty dogs, barking at each other.Well, darn it, the young buck was out of line, wasn’t he? I took our order and went to our table vowing I would never darken their doorstep with my shadow again! I don’t suppose they would miss me all that much.A few minutes later the young man, the same one that was so out of line came to our table carrying a tray with double our order, and not only that but he apologized!I can’t stand it when people are nice to me when I am angry! Then, to add insult to injury, he said, “God bless you, sir.”Well, to make a long story short, we ended up praying together, and a while later one of the waitresses came to our table and said, “Sir, will you please pray for my friend John. He was in an accident last night and is in critical condition.”Well, needless to say, I think Papa God used the old rock troll, but more than that He used two young people to instruct a grumpy old duffer in what Christianity is really all about.Live simply,Love generously,Trust God, and make a difference, today.Charles Towne is a longtime Apopka resident, member of Insp!re Church and a published author. Interesting story to share. Admitting you are difficult to like. Has that moment changed you for good? In serving the public, more often then I care to admit, I am challenged when I face people who are ‘difficult, angry or a bully’ … showing kindness doesn’t always evoke the feedback I expect … still I persevere by not surrending to the ‘Curmudgeon’ (as you admitted in your story, did describe you) .. Faith, life experience & wisdom, I continue to rely on, in my capacity as a public servant. I can to walk away from ‘difficult’ people to like’ because of the power of compassion to do so. Thank you for sharing your story. Dear friend, I like the idea that Papa God is there, just yearning for us to come to Him so that he can put His arms around us, hold us, and love us with a boundless love.

Midweek Madness – Prop Brok Harris clears his line

first_imgWednesday May 26, 2010 Midweek Madness – Prop Brok Harris clears his line The Stormers have surprised everyone this season by reaching the finals of the Super 14 with a brand of rugby that involves serious attention to detail on defence, and a fifteen man game when on attack. This is a short clip that exemplifies the latter approach.They face the Bulls in the final on Saturday in Soweto, having named an unchanged side from the one that beat the Waratahs in the semifinal in Cape Town a few days ago.Packing down in the front row will be Brok Harris, who at times this season has shown that hes more than just an ox who does the hard work up front come the set pieces.Thats been a trademark of the Stormers play this year, in that theyve scored tries from all over the park with numbers one to fifteen getting involved to the point that weve seen props give scoring passes, and loose forwards combine out wide as if theyre midfield veterans.Theres even been a 6ft10 giant galloping around as though hes a wing, such is the confidence in the side. Theyll be truly tested against the Bulls though, playing them away from home in what will probably be a far tighter contest.This short clip from earlier in the season is a pretty funny example of just how much confidence the players have out there on the park, and how the game has changed over the years.Whether hes been secretly practising at training or its natural ability, prop Brok Harris shows us that its not only backs who can impress with the boot when called upon.

BLAF focuses on the generating capacity of architecture on a spatial, social and ecological level. Urbanism and preoccupation with private property have led to land being consumed to the point that Belgium is now one of the most dense and dispersed areas in Europe. BLAF have since long contributed to the general awareness of this “genetic” condition by experimenting with its most basic component: the single family house. Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertThis house is built in a typical Flemish sprawl-area, on the edge of an allotment, where the suburbs literally face the countryside. The allotment creates a condition that is both generic and specific, context and non-text. The house deals with this condition in an apparently indifferent way, whilst in fact it is questioning the allotment: it is reformulating the concept of the front, side and back facade by addressing the surroundings in equivalent ways, and it is consciously leaving any kind of fencing behind. Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertPassive houses have unusually thick outside walls. Organizing staircases, furniture, storage, technical rooms etc. against these walls articulates their thickness even more. The house becomes a monolith, with a thick functional shell and an intimate, encapsulated center. Every window creates a niche, an abscissa, orchestrating the relations between the heart of the house and the exterior. From a “passive house” point of view, the shell perforations are balanced between the maximization of solar heat gains and the reduction of heat losses.

Head of Christian-democratic party hounds the independent press

first_img Moldovan reporters harassed by Russian soldiers on border with Transnistria May 6, 2011 Find out more MoldovaEurope – Central Asia Transnistrian journalist gets presidential pardon in return for televised confession Organisation News MoldovaEurope – Central Asia to go further June 14, 2019 Find out more News RSF_en center_img Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information July 23, 2020 Find out more April 28, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Head of Christian-democratic party hounds the independent press News News Journalists must be respected during Moldova’s political crisis Follow the news on Moldova Reporters Without Borders has expressed concern about a populist right wing leader, Yurie Rosca, who has been laying repeated legal cases against the country’s independent media.Rosca, leader of the Christian-Democrat People’s Party (CDPP) and recently elected deputy speaker of the Moldovan parliament, laid a complaint on 25 April against the tri-weekly Timpul de dimineata for damaging his “honour, dignity and professional reputation” and claiming 50,000 euros damages.”The legal cases brought by Iurie Rosca against the independent press constitute a definite threat to press freedom in the country,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.”Moldovan leaders must not get into the habit of laying complaints as soon as a media is critical of the government. The country has over the last few months demonstrated its willingness to come into line with the European Union and consequently its standards in legal and press matters. “The parliamentary deputy speaker should therefore stop systematically laying complaints against newspapers that are critical of him,” it said.His latest complained related to an article in the 6 April edition of Timpul de dimineata (a popular Romanian-language newspaper with a circulation of 19,000) headlined “Iurie Rosca and Oleg Serebrian”, that quoted from the “Black book on corruption”. This book, that openly denigrates the electoral coalition “Democratic Moldova” to which Oleg Serebrian belongs, was printed, according to Timpul, by Prag 3, a publishing house owned by Iurie Rosca. This was denied by Rosca who accused the paper of defamation.The previous week, Rosca brought a complaint against the Jurnal de Chisinau (Romanian-language bi-weekly, circulation 10,000) also for injuring his “honour and dignity”. He objected to an editorial written by Val Butnaru on 29 March headlined, “The king is naked”.The journalist referred to a certain “Master” and his political coat-turning for electoral ends. Rosca considered it was aimed at him. His party and his newspaper Flux was in opposition in recent years but in March, after the elections, he struck a deal with the communist party, which allowed him to also become deputy speaker of parliament. Val Butnaru had said, in another editorial, that he was not just referring to Rosca but the “Master”, a popular Moldovan figure, represented politicians in general. This did not stop Rosca from claiming around 62,000 euros in damages from the Journal de Chisinau and nearly 31,000 euros from Val Butnaru.A political study carried out by five local press freedom NGOs, found that Rosca was the Moldovan politician who had brought the most legal cases against the media, with no fewer than a dozen complaints laid between 1998 and 2003 for “insulting his honour and dignity”.last_img read more

She spent 11 years in various finance roles with the company. She has also worked for Kimberly-Clark Corporation and PepsiCo.“Wetzel’s Pretzels is a brand that is primed for continued franchise growth thanks to its combination of ease of operation, menu simplicity and fresh-baked offerings that resonate with consumers,” Smith said in a statement. “I look forward to advising the brand during its next growth phase, partnering with franchisees to drive profitability and working with our private equity partners and internal leadership team to continue creating guest loyalty and shareholder value through technology implementation, and innovation across various other channels.”Smith comes in nearly a year after Wetzel’s Pretzels president Jennifer Schuler said they would focus on improving the bottom line for their franchisees and helping them perform better to encourage new operators.The company is now testing prototype kiosks at upscale malls as a new strategy to maintain steady sales, the report said.In 2017, the company reported a 1.7 percent increase in same-store sales. Stores at premium mall locations perform even better, Schuler said. Wetzel’s also is adding new stores to Walmart and outlet centers, according to the report.Recently, the company recently opened its first location in China. A master franchisee there plans to open 50 stores in the country. By the end of the year, Wetzel’s is expected to add about 30 new locations, the report said.

The bank attests that the IRS charged interest on both overpayments and underpayments for “a variety of predecessors” as well as institutions it has acquired as far back as the 1980s. The report lists two of those companies as Merrill Lynch and FleetBoston Financial.According to a Justia, the case was filed on September 13, 2017 in the Charlotte Office, through the county of Mecklenburg.The Charlotte Observer reports that Bank of America alleges the IRS miscalculated interest, and while it has received refunds related to Merrill Lynch, the IRS has denied additional claims made by the bank. The paper also reports that Bank of America has filed a separate suit with the agency back in August of 2016 for damages in $15,000.This is a developing story. It is general policy for the IRS to not comment on pending litigation, and Bank of America has yet to release a comment on the matter.
