Gabby needs a prom date

Prom is meant to be a night to remember, a celebration to cap off the end of high school.Gabby Horner-Shepherd is a 21-year-old Waterford District High School student with special needs. She is in her senior year and is hoping to go to prom this coming Saturday.Her mom, Shannon Horner-Shepherd, decided to make a website and video to search for a prom date for Gabby.“It was a last-minute spontaneous decision that hit me in the middle of the night,” Shannon said about creating the website. The idea came to her on May 22. “A friend of Gabby’s sister came and helped build the website.”The website went live on May 25, just a week before the prom will take place. Gabby’s prom is on June 1, so time is tight for her to find a date.“I would really like to go to my senior year prom,” Shannon said on Gabby’s behalf in a video posted to their website. “I need a date. I need someone special who is willing to take me.”The website has pulled in a few applicants already.“We’ve had quite a few people that have replied and reached out. We’re going to have to narrow down the search, but we’re always still looking,” said Shannon. “The people that have sent stuff in are all amazing people and have expressed an interest, and it’s great.”Shannon says that Gabby’s ideal prom date would be Ed Sheeran or Pitbull, because she loves music.“She loves listening to the male singing voices. She’s got a couple Ed Sheeran songs that can calm her down at any time.”Gabby has a genetic disorder – partial trisomy 13 duplicate inversion — meaning she has an extra piece on her 13th chromosome. When she was about three weeks old, doctors told Gabby’s parents that her life expectancy was one year, but she made it through that initial year and is now completing high school. She is non-verbal, meaning she does not speak or use sign language, but she is able to get her point across to people she knows well.Shannon said the best way to describe Gabby is “sparkling.” She also describes her as engaging and funny, with a mischievous personality. The website says she is assertive and feisty when her needs are not met.Gabby, needing to be supervised 24 hours a day, has two support staff workers that help her with different aspects of life. She likes to take her supports on adventures, and has gone paddle-boarding, Sea-dooing, and zip-lining with them.Gabby has been a student at Waterford since Grade 10, and is now ready to graduate after her prom.The website has an introduction to Gabby, written in her perspective by her mom.“With the help of my mom I want to change the way that the world sees people with disabilities and how they live their lives. I know to the rest of the world I may not be someone who you would walk up to and want to spend time with but once you get to know me I am one heck of an amazing person,” Shannon wrote on the website for Gabby.Shannon also posted about the hunt on Facebook, which currently has over 35 comments, 110 likes, and 165 shares.In the post Shannon writes, “My life’s mission since she came into this world 21 years ago has been to make sure that she is remembered by everyone she meets so that when the day comes that she’s no longer on this earth she has left an imprint on their souls. I would love this prom to be one of those times where she is remembered by everyone whose lives she has touched in high school. And to truly make it the best night ever for Gabby!”If you are interested in putting your name forward in the search for Gabby’s prom date, you can contact Shannon at or check out Gabby’s website prom is on June 1, so applications need to be in as soon as possible.astaylor@postmedia.comVideo Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume. read more

Papua New Guinea Security Council urges efforts to remove arms from Bougainville

In a statement to the press, the Council’s current President, Ambassador John D. Negroponte of the United States, welcomed recent moves in the country, including the Government’s stated intention to accord national priority to peacebuilding in Bougainville. Ambassador Negroponte recalled that the Bougainville Peace Agreement, signed in August 2001, has three elements: autonomy, a referendum and a weapons disposal plan. Council members, he said, “encouraged the parties to work together to implement these provisions as soon as possible in order to achieve a definitive settlement of the conflict.”Particular emphasis was placed on the agreed weapons disposal plan, which the President stressed must be carried out “in full and on time.” He added that the members called for redoubled efforts “without interruption” to achieve this end.Noting the importance of international aid in support of the Bougainville peace process, Council members urged the world community to remain mobilized in this respect, according to the statement.Ambassador Negroponte also voiced the appreciation of Council members for “the important role played by the United Nations Political Office in Bougainville as well as the Peace Monitoring Group of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Vanuatu.”The press statement followed a closed-door briefing on Bougainville by John Renninger, the Director of the Asia and Pacific Division of the UN Department of Political Affairs. read more

Womens Hockey Freshmen Emma Maltais and Tatum Skaggs pave the way for

Ohio State freshman forward Emma Maltais (17) heads back out on the ice to start the second period of the game against Minnesota on Jan. 19. Ohio State won 3-2. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorFreshmen forwards Emma Maltais and Tatum Skaggs started their ice hockey careers as followers. At the age of 4, all they wanted to do was lace up their skates and follow their big brothers onto the ice. It didn’t matter that they were likely to be the only girls in a rink full of boys.Then, amid the countless drills, skating exercises and shots at the net, something clicked. Hockey was no longer about being just like their big brothers. It became their own passion.“As soon as I started to play more, it was kind of like, ‘This is my dream,’” Skaggs said. “[My brother] just helped me get into it.” Maltais developed a similar mindset as she got more into the sport, falling in love with the thrill and speed of the game. Her competitive edge has not waned over the years, especially since her start on the Ohio State women’s hockey team this past season.Maltais led the Buckeyes in points with 14 goals and 24 assists in the 2017-18 regular season. Skaggs followed closely behind with 21 goals and 14 assists. Despite leading in the scorebook, neither of the freshmen feels her contributions are more important than anyone else’s on the team. “Everyone knows that everyone is equal and we need all of each other to win,” Skaggs said. “I don’t feel as if there’s any hierarchy for me just because [I put] the puck in the net … it takes all of us to win.’Both players knew they wanted to play collegiate hockey early in their careers. Maltais committed to Ohio State as a freshman in high school, while Skaggs was first scouted as an eighth-grader. Although Skaggs was torn between a couple different schools, she chose Ohio State because, like Maltais, she wanted the opportunity to play for a rebuilding team.In the seasons following their commitments to Ohio State, Skaggs and Maltais watched from the sidelines while the women’s hockey program underwent three coaching changes in four years. Once Nadine Muzerall took the helm, they worried if they would still be welcomed on the team, but Muzerall assured them both they still had their spots.As Muzerall has begun to lay the foundation for the program, players like Maltais and Skaggs have brought it to life while building their own legacies at Ohio State.“My goal was to always come in and make a difference in a program and I think the fact that I’m a part of that is really an amazing feeling,” Maltais said. “Coach [Muzerall] has done a really great job in building our four pillars for our team and creating a culture, and I think being a part of that new culture is really a great way to start off my college career and I think that can keep going.”Maltais’ and Skagg’s strong starts to their collegiate careers have not gone unnoticed. The Western Collegiate Hockey Association named Maltais rookie of the month three times this season. She also was named rookie of the week twice, as well as offensive player of the week. Skaggs was named offensive player of the month in January, and offensive player of the week and rookie of the week twice.Both agree a fitting way to end their strong freshman seasons would be a national title. Still, Skaggs said it’s important not to look too far into the future.“I think that if we, at the end of the day, at the end of the season, if we make it as far as we do by working hard, I think that’s all that matters,” Skaggs said. “As long as we finish strong and with pride and with respect for our other opponent, I think that’s all we can do.”Looking past their first season, both players hope to leave a lasting impact on the rebuilt program, starting by instilling in future players the values of being an Ohio State women’s hockey player.“I think that we have a really strong freshmen class that came in and I think that my class moving through these next four years can help make a difference in the program,” Maltais said. “I think it’s about building a legacy here at Ohio State and truly passing on to the younger girls coming in what it’s meant to be a Buckeye.” read more

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 23, 2017 Melissa, his wife, is believed to be in hospitalCredit:Facebook Melissa, his wife, is believed to be in hospital He also spoke of how his parents got him interested in music, telling the paper: “My parents were big into music and entertaining. Mom loved jazz and Dad loved country. Music was very prevalent in my early years.”I have a sister who is 10 years older than I am, and I used to sneak into her room and listen to Hendrix, Cream and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young”.The musician also played in a band with his friend. He explained: “One day, my best friend was goofing around on a Casio keyboard and I picked up my guitar, and we started jamming. At that moment, we started a band. We played for a few years, played a few gigs and then decided that instead of a half-assed band we would build a kick-ass studio.”So we did. We kicked around many names and because the studio is located on historic Onion Street in West Bountiful, the name Onion Street Studio became the obvious choice.”The music fan managed to achieve his dream of opening his own recording studio in 2007, and it appeared to be a roaring success, with customers giving it rave reviews.One customer wrote: “I cannot say enough good things about Onion Street Studio. Very reasonable pricing. Creative and productive environment. Flexible hours and great people. I never felt pushed or pigeonholed into a direction I did not want to go. I will never use anyone but OSS! All around great experience!” The Utah-based fellow musician said Kurt and Melissa had helped support his music career, even inviting him to record his songs for free at their studio.  “He brought musicians together,” he said.He said Kurt’s legacy as a musician should be an inspiration to others. “It can be hard when you’ve got  responsibilities in daily life to dive into your dream. But he did just that. He gave it all to make it happen, and he succeeded. He said Kurt had been helping another friend of theirs record an album, that they are going to complete upon his return.He said the attack would not deter him from travelling to Britain, or feel unsafe. “I think if you buy into fear, then they win, Isil win.”Mr Cochran appeared to have been travelling around Europe this month, having posted photographs of his recent visit to Holland, Germany, Scotland and Ireland on his Facebook page.He and his wife were reportedly due to return home next week.He was a keen musician, according to friends who posted their condolences on social media, and he played the guitar from the age of seven.last_img read more

Twitter cofounder Ev Williams Political conversations have become noisier

first_img Share your voice Twitter co-founder and Medium CEO Evan Williams. Photo by Michael Kovac/Getty Images for Vanity Fair Twitter co-founder and Medium CEO Ev Williams said he got excited about the Web because he thought that with more information at our fingertips it would make people smarter. But the rising popularity of social media sites also created an environment where people have become wired to respond to short-term feedback such as the numbers of likes on a tweet or an Instagram post.”We get hooked on that just like we get hooked on sugar,” he said on stage at Recode’s annual Code Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.When Williams looked at the cycle before Donald Trump was elected president, he doesn’t think people are becoming more intelligent. More information doesn’t make you smarter, he said, if people don’t know how to digest or contextualize it.”I think part of it is just the limits of the human attention span,” he said.Social media sites, including Twitter, have been trying to foster “healthier” conversations on their platforms in what can be a space filled with bullies and trolls. Studies have also linked social media to depression and anxiety.To undo the unhealthy nature of instant feedback, Williams said that people need to build systems that don’t emphasize likes or followers. Photo-sharing site Instagram has been testing the ability for users to hide their “likes.”The problem, Williams said, is that people have combined the idea of connecting with others with social competition. But that system can burn out users.”That social competition at all times is exhausting emotionally,” he said. 2 Comments Internet Services Tech Industry Tags Instagram Twitterlast_img read more

Cages Used to be Put Over Graves to Protect Against Body Snatchers

first_imgDuring the late-18th and 19th centuries, grave robbing became big business across Great Britain and the U.S. The fact that certain medical schools would pay for fresh corpses only fueled the practice. People used many ways in which to protect their dead. In order to protect the body before burial, friends would be assigned to work in shifts sitting in the same room as the corpse so as not to leave it alone.A painting of body snatchers at work on the wall of the Old Crown Inn in the High Street of Penicuik in Midlothian. The inn is about 100 yards from the local parish kirkyard.Photo: Kim Traynor – CC BY-SA 3.0After burial, the families would hire or organize a group to watch cemeteries at night or, if financially able, would use a mortsafe to protect the grave. This was a cage made of iron that covered the grave until the body was decomposed enough to no longer be valuable to medical schools.Iron coffin mortsafe in Colinton, once a village outside EdinburghMany communities shared the cost and passed around a mortsafe or rented one from the church. Most were assembled at the grave because of the excessive weight.In Scotland, the problem of grave robbing was stepped up when the most unscrupulous turned to murder rather than having to dig up a body.In 1828 two Irish men who had separately settled in Edinburgh, William Burke and his accomplice William Hare, committed a series of murders in order to to provide a fresh supply of cadavers to Dr. Robert Knox, an anatomy teacher of the medical school at Edinburgh University.Mortsafes at Logeriat Church in Perthshire, Scotland.

With the ease by which they had earned this much money, the two kept on the lookout for terminally ill people.Mortsafe in Greyfriars Kirkyard, Edinburgh. Photo by Kim Traynor – CC BY-SA 3.0Soon the shortage of ill people caused Burke and Hare to lure prostitutes and the poor elderly to the lodging house to kill them by suffocation. When they delivered the bodies to Dr. Knox, he never questioned where they were acquired.According to The History of Burke and Hare and of the Resurrectionist Times by George MacGregor, Edinburgh University was no stranger to body snatching, with students and even nurses turning in bodies for money.Mortsafes in Cluny graveyard, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Photo by Wellcome Images CC BY 4.0In December of 1827, Hare met Mrs. Smith, an elderly woman who had just arrived in Edinburgh.She had been drinking and Hare befriended, her insisting that she lodge with him. At Hare’s home more and more alcohol was served and Mrs. Simpson became so intoxicated she could not leave.Mort-Safe In Alloway Auld Kirk In the early 19th century Photo by Mary and Angus Hogg CC BY SA 2.0The next morning she was so hungover that Hare gave her more whiskey to help her feel better. It was then that Hare put his hand over her nose and mouth and Burke held her down until she suffocated.They placed the body in a box and took it to Dr. Knox, receiving about ten pounds.The murders continued with Hare and Burke getting their prey drunk and then suffocating them — until they attacked James Wilson, called “Daft Jamie” by the townsfolk. He was a mentally challenged young man known by almost everyone.Mort-safe, to prevent body-snatching Photo by Wellcome Images CC BY SA 4.0Jamie was a gentleman who was a wizard with numbers and harmed no one. In the fall of 1828, Jamie was wandering about town looking for his mother when he came across Hare’s wife, Margaret. She lured him to Hare, who got him drunk while Mrs. Hare went to get Burke.Once they were all together even more alcohol was consumed. When Jamie passed out, Margaret left and Burke and Hare attempted to suffocate him. The men were accustomed to killing women and old men, but Jamie fought back.Mortsafes at Kinnernie graveyard, Aberdeenshire..

Google Partners With Wireless Carriers to Push Wallet Service

first_img Register Now » Google Inc has partnered with several large U.S. wireless carriers to pre-install its electronic payment service on phones, as the companies seek to counter Apple Inc’s recent entry into the nascent market for mobile payments.AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless will include the Google Wallet app later this year on Android smartphones sold in the United States, Google said in a post on its official blog on Monday. Google also said it has acquired technology from Softcard, a mobile payment initiative that was created by many of the wireless carriers several years ago.The Google Wallet app stores a consumer’s credit or debit card information and allows shoppers to pay for goods by tapping their phone against a special terminal at a retail store’s checkout counter.Google launched Wallet in 2011, but the service struggled to become a hit with consumers, in part because the wireless carriers developed the competing Softcard service.The competitive landscape shifted in October, when Apple included the Apple Pay mobile payment service with the new iPhone 6 line of smartphones.(Reporting by Alexei Oreskovic; editing by Matthew Lewis) This story originally appeared on Reuters Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global February 23, 2015 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 1 min readlast_img read more

Moves to tackle plastic beach waste

first_imgAN initiative to fight plastic waste in Cyprus was launched in Paphos on Wednesday afternoon.The programme is being promoted by the Akti Project and Research Centre which is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation based in Nicosia.The official launch of the campaign took place at 4pm at Geroskipou beach and was attended by the Spanish ambassador, Angel Lossada, representatives of the municipality of Geroskipou and volunteers.A spokesman for Akti said that the project “Fighting Plastic Waste in Cyprus: The Chiringuitos Responsibilities” is being carried out within the Beyond Plastic Med (BeMed) programme to tackle the challenge of plastic waste in the Mediterranean Sea and supporting innovative and socially responsible actions.
