Embed from Getty ImagesMany QPR fans on Twitter reacted with dismay to the 4-0 defeat at Norwich – and questioned whether Ian Holloway is the right man to take the club forward.The defeat was Rangers’ seventh in their last eight matches and their 18th in 30 since Holloway’s return to the club for a second spell as manager.And while some supporters are keen for him to be given the summer to revamp the squad, others are not convinced he can turn things around.Holloway supporters need to articulate reasons for him staying apart from we can’t sack another manager so quickly. Where’s the vision? #qpr— Abiola (@AbiolaHP) May 7, 2017Holloway is clueless please just admit the mistake so we can all move on and plan for next season #QPR— Ancel Alexander ™ (@ancelbailey) May 7, 2017As much as its painful to say it we need to get Holloway out now!!! Otherwise were gonna be involved in a relegation scrap again! #Qpr— Jamie McCourt (@JamieMcCourt96) May 7, 2017I’ve realised that #QPR “this is our cave” season ticket marketing drive is actually referring to Holloway’s Stone Age football @QPRFC— Michael (@Mike_H92) May 7, 2017Trying not to get wound up by Holloway,his tombola selections, lack of tactical nouse & terrible post match interviews.Difficult tho #QPR— D J (@ThaGreat1) May 7, 2017Todays result sums up our entire season , personally holloway isnt the answer should cut our losses and get some1 else in 4 preseason #QPR— Duncan Mccreadie#QPR (@duncanmccreadie) May 7, 2017Holloway OUT right NOW. #QPR— Yousef Marafi® (@Yousef_QPR) May 7, 2017Why keep Holloway in charge only to inevitably have to sack him in October after managing 2 wins in 14 games of the new season? #QPR— Darren Pickard (@darrenpickard) May 7, 201730 games, 18 losses. TBH I’d happily accept Ian Holloway’s resignation because I don’t want to see another sacking in November. #QPR— James Evans (@Jimeevans) May 7, 2017Holloway if u love the club that much hold your hands up and admit it hasn’t worked out #qpr— Gareth kiss (@Gkiss100) May 7, 2017Seriously though Holloway needs to look if he can do this job. Has passion yh but everything else has been poor, nostalgia over #QPR— seaAny (@Sean_FootyMad) May 7, 2017Can’t see what Holloway has done to justify not getting sacked…either sack him in the summer or he’ll be gone by October #QPR— Russell Maynard (@MrRussellmyn) May 7, 2017What a surprise, losing again ! Please just go Holloway and give someone who actually has a clue a chance next season , anyone !!#QPR— Tony R (@rizzb64) May 7, 2017If Ian Holloway loves this football club he will leave.

ALAMEDA — Jon Gruden was in a better mood Monday after the Raiders most one-sided loss of the season than he was the day after any of the three straight wins that preceded it.“Tough day yesterday, but the sun came up today,” Gruden said at his weekly press conference Monday with a 34-3 loss to the New York Jets still fresh in his mind.There was one bit of troubling news, as wide receiver Hunter Renfrow was lost for an extended period and perhaps the season with a rib injury.Gruden rejected …
There was a lot of excitement on the campus of North Shore Animal League America’s national adoption headquarters in New York when Renee Felice Smith of NCIS: Los Angeles loaned her time and talent to co-direct and film a Public Service Announcement for the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum.Renee Felice Smith PSAThe actress was joined by a cast made up of thirty five pre-k, elementary, middle and high school student volunteers. In addition to the human cast, the PSA features some of their best and brightest shelter pets, otherwise known as Mutt-i-grees!The PSA, which launched in early June, highlights this unique educational program now in over 2,000 schools nationwide. Responding to the needs of the whole child, the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum is unique, bridging social and emotional learning with humane education with the ultimate goal of helping to end euthanasia. The PSA will bring the benefits and highlights of the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum to the attention of school administrators, teachers, parents and entire school communities.While the Curriculum does not require the presence of a pet in the classroom, animals in the form of puppets and toys are effectively utilized in commanding attention, improving cognitive abilities and contribute to teaching students how to be more compassionate and empathetic. Some schools do choose to use therapy dogs or shelter dogs to enhance the lessons.The curriculum was developed by North Shore Animal League America’s Pet Savers Foundation, in collaboration with Yale University’s School of the 21st Century, and funded by The Cesar Millan Foundation. The lessons are easily implemented with scripted lessons that align with the Common Core standards and feature lessons on dog behavior developed by renowned dog behavior expert, Cesar Millan.Renée, along with top advertising and media professionals, donated their time and talent to develop a meaningful and impactful message: “a piece,” said Renée, “that will raise awareness about this revolutionary program and effectively introduce the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum to the world.” She added, “We take tests, we study for the SATs and that’s all fine and good, but what the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum does is show another side of the spectrum, and show another side of learning and becoming a whole person. Education programs like the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum are key to building a more compassionate society, a more accepting society. A society that has more tolerance for each other.”Renée’s passion for children and animals was evident on the set but doesn’t end there. She is developing a children’s book series based on her dog, Hugo.To view the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum PSA or to learn more about the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum, visit www.education.muttigrees.org.

The ordinance considers residents to be living in their vehicle if they use it for things like sleeping, bathing or preparing meals.The Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods Committee approved the proposal last month, sending it to the city council for a final decision.It’s a restoration of a law that was previously in place, replacing a nearly 36-year-old ban that the council unanimously voted to repeal in February. The city had not enforced the old ban since last year, when a federal judge issued an injunction because the ban was unconstitutionally vague in how the city defined a person as living in a car.Council members and community members in favor of the revised ban said San Diego recently has been flooded with homeless. They emphasized that the goal is to encourage residents living in their vehicles to use monitored parking lots where residents can safely sleep overnight and access job training and housing assistance services.There are four safe parking lots open in the city, with a fifth set to open in June. There also are 2,700 government-funded shelter beds available. Critics say the new law unnecessarily criminalizes homeless people.The council approved the new law 6-3 after more than three hours of debate and public testimony Tuesday at City Hall. Dissenting votes were cast by Council President Georgette Gomez and members Monica Montgomery and Chris Ward.Taking effect immediately, the law was approved as an emergency ordinance.

Categories: News 23Jan Franz welcomes national debt expert’s testimony at Michigan House committee hearing State Rep. Ray Franz today welcomed William Fruth, president of POLICOM Corporation, to provide testimony on the desperate need for Congress to balance the federal budget.Franz’ House Joint Resolution CC adds Michigan to the list of states calling for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution requiring the federal government to operate with an annually balanced budget.“Congress has been overspending our nation’s budget for over three decades, and there’s no end in sight,” said Franz, R-Onekama. “It’s unrealistic and unfathomable for personal and business finances, as well as for local and state government levels, and it is unsustainable and unacceptable if our country is to have any kind of future for our children and grandchildren.”At about $17 trillion, the United States’ debt load puts it on a list of 12 out of 182 nations with debt greater than the size of their economy. The debt is primarily owed to private and public investors, foreign investing entities, as well as internal federal government trust funds, such as the Social Security Trust Fund, Civil Service Retirement, and Military Retirement & Medical Medicare.Fruth, economic development consultant with the Balance Budget Amendment Task Force in Virginia, likened America’s direction to “going over Niagara Falls.”“It hasn’t mattered what party is in Congress, they have continued to borrow money to run the nation, and it is breaking the back of our country,” Fruth said. “At every other level, we’re compelled to say ‘no, there just isn’t any money,’ but in Washington, D.C., it’s been too easy to say ‘yes.’“There are several choices we have: we can do nothing, and just hope our nation, our political system and our freedom don’t collapse under soaring inflation and increased taxation; we can elect people to office who will stop the borrowing and spending cycle, but we’ve seen how that’s worked the last 30 years; we can riot in the streets, as we’ve seen citizens do in other countries, but that’s not good; or we can make it unlawful through a Balanced Budget Amendment for Congress to borrow and spend money it has no ability to repay.”Along with testimony from Franz, Fruth and Sen. Mike Green, who sponsored a Senate version of the Balanced Budget Amendment joint resolution, the House panel heard comments in favor of the measure from Charlie Owens, Michigan director of the National Federation of Independent Business. The committee received ‘opposed’ messages from the Michigan League for Public Policy, AFL-CIO and UAW.The House Financial Liability Reform Committee is considering HJR CC and SJR V.From left: Bill Fruth of the Balance Budget Amendment Task Force, Charlie Owens, Michigan director of the National Federation of Independent Business, and state Rep.

02Oct Rep. Farrington bill improves protection of vulnerable adults Categories: Diana Farrington News,News State Rep. Diana Farrington has sponsored legislation to protect vulnerable adults from abuse or restraint by physical, verbal, mental or financial means.“The only thing more despicable than the abuse of an elder or vulnerable adult is that this kind of illegal behavior is growing rapidly in Michigan,” said Farrington, of Utica. “Ensuring our laws protect and provide justice for the victims of these kind of crimes is a priority that we should all share, regardless of it being fraud or physical abuse. The effects of this abuse is more significant to our senior citizens, so the penalties under the law should better reflect the severity.”Farrington’s legislation also updates the sentencing guidelines that range from one year imprisonment for assault on a person reasonably known to be an elder or vulnerable adult, to 25 years for abuse that results in death. Any restraint or intimidation can be punishable by up to four years imprisonment.“We have to better protect our veterans and seniors from this kind of behavior,” said Farrington. “Vulnerable adults rely on friends, families and caregivers to help make them comfortable, not to take advantage and destroy their quality of life. This legislation will send a clear message that anyone who violates that trust and expectation of care will be penalized.”Farrington’s legislation is part of a bipartisan six-bill package that also requires better licensing for nursing home administrators and assisted living facilities to clarify training and state standards in the care of vulnerable adults. The bill package also increases penalties up to a 20-year felony for embezzlement of more than $100,000 as well as 15-year felony for physical abuse that results in a serious impairment.Farrington’s legislation is House Bill 5028 and it has been assigned for the House Law and Justice Committee for its consideration.#####
