Facebook Haley Harrison Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store printConvoy of Hope, the non-profit organization that helps communities worldwide by providing food, water and emergency supplies, rolled into Southwest high school this past weekend for its biggest community event in Fort Worth yet.For the first time, the organization partnered with the City of Fort Worth and many other local organizations to provide a complimentary lunch and various other services for residents. Fort Worth City Councilman Jungus Jordan said about 10,000 people visited the high school despite the cold, windy weather.Children enjoyed free haircuts, shoes and a “kids zone” that included 14 bounce houses. Adults were able to talk with consultants from health, career and other community services.“Our goal is to do two things,” said Darius Johnston, Lead Pastor for Christ Church of Fort Worth. “Number one give people a handout, but we also want to give people a hand-up. We want to do something that is going to make a difference for the needy people in our community.”Johnston and other church leaders helped supply Bibles and pray with attendees who were interested.Steve Pulis, the Convoy of Hope National Director for community events, said that the Fort Worth event had some unique services such as a municipal court, where residents could talk to local judges about their concerns, and the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The event volunteers even wore pink shirts to celebrate the Breast Cancer Awareness Month of October.“We have been wanting to do a pink out event for a long time,” Pulis said. “We are helping a lot of women know how to early-detect breast cancer and what to do if they find a lump.”Health professionals encouraged women to get an ultrasound or mammogram if they are concerned.Many families looked forward to their share of the 10,0000 grocery bags that waited for them at the end of their time at the event, Pulis said. Each adult received two bags of groceries and a third bag of locally fresh produce. Children were also given brand new soccer balls from the Zeb Strong Foundation.Kenneth Flynn, the local coordinator for the community event, said his team of about 30 people spent countless hours over the past six months planning for this event. But that hasn’t stopped him from looking ahead.“We need to do it again really soon,” Flynn said. “Although we had a lot [of local support], we would love to have more people help us and make this even bigger next time.”Flynn said if a local church or business group is interested in getting involved with Convoy of Hope, they can register on their website under the participate tab.

Austin 4-0.The Frogs outshot the Ladyjacks 33-4 en route to a victory. Three of the four goals were scored by first-year players.“They’re figuring it out faster than I thought they would,” TCU Head Coach Eric Bell said. “That’s allowing us to progress in a fashion that helped us play some beautiful soccer today.”TCU began the match in their usual 4-4-2 diamond formation with a few personnel changes – goalkeeper Emily Alvarado, midfielder Tara Smith and forward Maddy Warren each recorded their first start of the season.Messiah Bright controls a pass against Stephen F. Austin on August 23, 2018. Photo by Jack Wallace.Forward Messiah Bright opened the scoring in the second minute when she headed home a cross from defender Chaylyn Hubbard.“I saw Chaylyn going into the box, and we’ve been talking about making the right runs,” Bright said. “When I saw that I was in the right position, and I was able to score– I was excited.”In the 47th minute, midfielder Payton Crews played a cross to forward Maddy Warren, who saw her shot saved by Ladyjack goalkeeper Allyson Halliday. The save fell right to Warren and she finished into the corner for the second goal.Defender Tijana Djuricek added to TCU’s advantage in the 57th minute. Djuricek was in the box for a corner, and after a scramble, she latched onto the end of a pass from midfielder Karitas Tomasdottir and slotted it into the back of the net.The fourth goal came in the 81st minute when midfielder Tatum Condrey received a pass from Warren and rolled it past the goalkeeper Halliday and over the line.Maddy Warren celebrates her goal against Stephen F.

Bright said she felt the team was on the same page tonight.“I thought we kept our composure,” Bright said. “I felt we had the unity that we’ve been looking for in our previous games.”Bell spoke highly of this year’s recruiting class and, more broadly, said he’s happy with where the program is right now.“We have a lot of talented players all over the field– they can do different things and play the style of soccer that I’ve always wanted to play since I got here,” Bell said.The win moves the Frogs to 3-0 on the season and 8-2 in the all-time series against Stephen F.

Following his release, he told Agence France-Presse that the police wanted him to show them the hiding place of Jemil Ould Mansour, an Islamist opposition leader he recently interviewed.”They also wanted to use me to find other fugitives, which I flatly refused to do,” added Ebilmaali, who also writes for the Arabic-language edition of the daily Nouakchott-Info and is a stringer for the German public radio station Deutsche-Welle.————————————20.05.2005 – Two journalists arrested in anti-Islamist raidsReporters Without Borders called on the Mauritanian authorities today to explain the arrests of journalists Mohamed Mahmoud Ould Ebilmaali and Mohamed Ould Abderrahmane in the course of anti-Islamist raids by the police. Ebilmaali was detained yesterday, while Abderrahmane was detained on 25 April.”Arresting journalists is serious and requires the utmost transparency,” the press freedom organization said. “Counter-terrorist raids are no justification for the use of the most repressive police methods and detaining people secretly.”Reporters Without Borders added: “If Ebilmaali has been imprisoned to make him reveal his sources or to punish him for interviewing the leader of an Islamist movement, we must voice our disapproval and call for his immediate release. On the other hand, if he and Abderrahmane are being held in prisons in Nouakchott for non-political crimes, the authorities must say so at once.”The editor of the independent daily Akhbar Nouakchott, Ebilmaali also writes for the Arabic-language edition of the daily Nouakchott-Info and is a stringer for the German public radio stations Deutsche-Welle (DW). In a statement calling for his release, his newspaper said he was “abducted” from his home yesterday morning by “men in turbans who identified themselves as police officers.” Local sources said his colleagues believed he was arrested for publishing an interview on 9 May with Jemil Ould Mansour, a leader of the Islamist opposition who is wanted by the police.Abderrahmane works for the public television station. Since his arrest during an anti-Islamist raid on 25 April, Reporters Without Borders has tried without success to find out what he is charged with.The authorities carried out several raids on Islamists at the end of April, accusing their leaders of being linked to foreign organizations such as the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC), an Algerian armed group that follows Osama bin Laden.

A 3-judge Bench comprising of Justices L Nageswara Rao, Krishna Murari and S Ravindra Bhat refused to interfere with the Delhi High Court’s December 2019 judgment whereby a Division Bench had also refused to entertain the plea. “We see no reason to interfere with the impugned order of the High Court. The Special Leave Petition is, accordingly, dismissed. However, liberty is granted to the petitioner to file impleadment application in Transfer Case (Civil) No.5/2020”,held the Top Court.The Petitioner had pointed out that in the impugned order, the High Court had failed to appreciate that there existed a total of around 35 million twitter handles in India and approximately 350 million Facebook accounts of which, according to experts, around 10% twitter handles (3.5 million) and 10% Facebook accounts (35 million) are fake.Arguing this point while appearing in person through virtual conferencing today, Upadhyay argued that social media accounts do have a deep impact on the minds of the common man, who finds it very difficult to distinguish fake and real accounts. It was further submitted that fake news, which may be created and propagated by fake, duplicate or ghost accounts shapes opinion and even plays “a vitiating role in the context of free and fair elections”. These bogus accounts, alleged Upadhyay, are also used for proliferation of fake news which is the root cause of many riots, including the recent riots in Delhi. In this light, it was urged that since Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution enables the State to impose reasonable restrictions on free speech in the interest of national and international security, it is duty of the State to take appropriate steps to weed-out fake, duplicate and ghost social media accounts. The Delhi High Court had earlier refused to entertain this plea by holding that linkage of Social media accounts with Aadhar or any other identification proof was a matter of government policy. “This exercise of drafting of a policy or amendment in the law or appreciation of the report of the Law Commission for linkage of AADHAR/PAN/Voter ID details with social media, all pertains to policy decision to be taken by the respondents. We are not inclined to give any direction to the respondents since Union of India is already deliberating upon this issue, as submitted by learned counsel for the Union of India,” it had held. While disposing of this plea, the Supreme Court did however grant Upadhyay liberty to file an impleadment application in another matter concerning the linkage of Aadhar with social media platforms, which is now pending before the Supreme Court. In that matter, the Top Court had ordered the transfer of all pending cases from various High Courts to itself. In the last hearing in that matter, on January 30, 2020, a Bench headed by Justice LN Rao had directed the Madras High Court to send all records related to the matter to the Supreme Court at the earliest.
