I was delighted that many of them came out for the walk on New Year’s Day bringing some of their friends and family with them. We collected €3,300 that day. It was the start of our New Year’s tradition.”The numbers of walkers and runners increased year on year. In 2000, three runners took part compared to 2019 when around 100 runners joined in.Eleanor was a supporter of CMRF Crumlin before she started the New Year’s Walk/Run, organising raffles to raise funds.

Fulham goal should have stood – Symons

first_imgFulham boss Kit Symons believes the officials were wrong to rule out Hugo Rodallega’s late goal at Millwall.The Colombian striker netted six minutes from time but had his celebrations cut short after the assistant referee ruled him offside.It meant Fulham had to settle for a goalless draw, their first away league point since the win at Leeds in mid-December.Millwall boss Ian Holloway said the decision was correct, saying the linesman had got it “spot on”.However, Symons said he had watched a replay and felt Rodallega was onside.He said: “In my opinion that was a good goal which should have stood.“Hugo’s level with the man marking him and I think the other defender’s probably a yard deeper, but that’s my opinion.“I just think it was the wrong call by the linesman, but these things happen.“It would have capped off a fantastic day if we’d come away with all three points but it wasn’t quite to be.”Symons was happy with the result, which keeps the Whites in 19th, five points above the Championship relegation zone.He added: “I thought we were the team pushing second half.“I’m disappointed not to get the win but a point in this division is precious, so we’ll take that.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebookjlast_img read more

It does not distinguish between the number of law-enforcement and national-security requests Facebook received.center_img Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verificationlast_img read more

Reflections of 9/11

first_imgOur work in the Military Families Learning Network is to link extension and research to the work of military families services professionals–the ones in the military and in government and non-government agencies who are called upon to help military families.Brent Elrod, of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture and United States Department of Agriculture, sent us, in the Extension-Military Partnership, the following email to reflect on 9/11 and remind us of why there is an Extension-Military partnership and why we are developing a Military Families Learning Network.He challenges us to continue our personal, professional, and collective commitments to help strengthen and support individuals, families, and communities, particularly those in the military.Reflections of 9/11 (email sent September 9, 2011)With the tenth anniversary of 9/11 upon us, our thoughts return to the events of the day: where we were, who we were with, and the range of emotions we felt.The magnitude of the loss, the vulnerability, and the search for meaning were immediate, collective – and continue to reverberate to this day.Glued to our tvs, tears running down our faces, we sought comfort in the knowledge our loved ones were safe. We exchanged greetings with strangers, and noticed the absence of planes in the sky.I recall renewing my vow to return to Washington, D.C. that day. A personal pledge to do what I could – on a grander scale – to demonstrate that  good ultimately trumps evil.I know that others – I expect many of you – made personal promises of your own.We pause to honor those who lost their lives (or had lives altered) in the terror attacks, at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, as well as those who have sacrificed to protect the homeland since.We recommit to strengthen and support individuals, families, and communities through our research, extension and academic programs. Our efforts help ensure that 9/11’s lasting legacy includes the very clear message that hope will not – cannot – be denied.V/r,Brent ElrodActing Division Director – Family and Consumer SciencesNational Program Leader – Military and Veteran’s ProgramsDivision of Family and Consumer SciencesStrengthening Families, Farms, Communities and the EconomyNational Institute of Food and AgricultureUnited States Department of Agriculturewww.nifa.usda.gov/militarylast_img read more

John McCain Elder Statesman Fierce Defense Hawk

first_imgSen. John McCain, one of the few lawmakers who often commanded more authority on national security issues than the president, died Saturday at the age of 81 after battling brain cancer for the past year. Over three decades in the Senate he became one of the Republicans’ most reliable champions for the military, with his chairmanship of the Armed Services Committee the highlight of his congressional career.“In the committee’s work, I have found high purpose in the service of a cause greater than self — the cause of the women and men in uniform who defend America and all she stands for,” McCain said earlier this month when the Senate approved the conference report to the fiscal 2019 defense authorization bill.One of McCain’s most recent victories in Congress was the effort he led last year with his counterpart, House Armed Services Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), to boost base defense spending for FY 2018 to $640 billion, $54 billion above the statutory spending cap, reported CQ. The campaign came to fruition this past February when lawmakers reached a two-year, bipartisan budget deal to raise defense spending above $700 billion in both FY 2018 and 2019, after adding in the war funding account.For a detailed account of McCain’s military and political career, read the obituary in the Washington Post.Photo by Sgt.
