LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your name here 1 COMMENT You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here REVIEW by Sheri Austin-AndersonYou may know Dracula, but do you know the real Professor Van Helsing?The Apopka High School Drama Department gives an outstanding adaptation of Nosferatu: The Legend of Dracula. The time period is set at the end of the 19th Century. The highly adaptable set allowed the actors to bring to life this classic tale of the modern day monster, Count Dracula.The play takes you seamlessly from the depths of Castle Dracula in Transylvania, to the rough seas on board the Schooner Demeter and through the twisted maze of Seward’s Asylum,  ~ all in search of the illusive Count Dracula. The period costumes were spot-on and there were many brilliant moments of shadow play.  The creative horror makeup completed the strong visuals.David Gomez performs a powerfully dark and sinister Count Dracula. September Porras and Imani Thomas deliver awesome “girl power” performances in the female leads. Tatyanna Santini’s character is completely oblivious to the dangers that surround her. Her comedic timing was flawless in delivering some of the funniest moments in the play.Austin Bade and Hakeem Kureshi give strong character performances in their roles. Max Kelly’s performance is brilliant as a tortured and demented inmate at the Seward’s Asylum.Bravo to Ms. Erin Miner and her very talented cast!This isn’t a 20th century vampire love story. It’s a fantastic play that remains loyal and true to Bram Stoker’s thematic core, the power of good over evil. This play is brilliantly performed by Apopka’s best, don’t miss it.There are 3 more performance:Tonight (Friday) at 7:30 PMTomorrow (Saturday) at 2:30 PMTomorrow (Saturday) at 7:30 PMAll performances are at the Apopka High School Performing Arts Center.Tickets are $8.00 and $10.00.center_img I continue to be amazed at Ms. Miner’s staging, costumes, and student talent. Apopka is lucky to have such a devoted teacher committed to keeping the arts alive at Apopka High School.

A vacation home to be rented to different users. Thus, a program of flexible needs. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe house was projected around three conditions: to be lifted from the natural level terrain in order not to modify its original contours, to occupy the biggest amount of frontage length at Fragata la Victoria Street in order to increase the apparent size of the house, as well as closing off the views from the street into the heart of the site (preventing the private areas from being exposed to the street) and to reduce the costs of future maintenance. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaTwo overlapping boxes at the corner form an ‘L’ in two levels, creating the separation of the program by levels.Save this picture!© Diego MedinaOn the upper floor, the level for private use is oriented towards resting: three bedrooms and two bathrooms. In the extremes of the plan, the bedrooms open to the incredible surroundings marked by the corner and the heart of the block, and the pines which work as vertical bars in the forest. 2013 Below this level, there is a semi-covered garage and an unobstructed white-painted-brick volume, which shelters the grill and other services. Like a wedge, this volume slips under the bedrooms yet closes the views from neighbors without touching the rest of the construction. Save this picture!© Diego MedinaOn the ground floor, a double concrete wall with expanded polystyrene core was projected. This wall serves as a thermal/heat and noise insulator, as well as a protection against glances that may disrupt the user’s tranquility. Being aware of the relationship between the street and the corner, the concrete wall is interrupted, leaving bars of concrete in front of the enclosure in order to allow the entrance of sunlight. In the corner, the concrete box opens to the outside through folds which help to expand the exterior view from the inside, and which, thanks to its funnel shape with the retracted profiles, reduce the interior view from the outside.Save this picture!© Diego MedinaTowards the middle of the block, the concrete box is cut with bars of glass and wood which are located in another level, protected in the depth of the lot. Access platforms and a low brick wall give access to the house. Once inside, views of the forest of pines blend with the different spaces: a bedroom to the right, a dressing room and bathroom on the ground floor, thought out for a hypothetical disabled user who cannot access to the upper floor. Living room, dining room and kitchen supersede each other, interacting with the garden until ending in the corner. The bars and the lightSave this picture!© Diego MedinaThe sun and its path lead to different scenes though out the house. Openings in the cover slab, in the inside as well as the outside, generate daily games of light and shades. Two circular openings over the entrance, two fixed glass panes over the dressing room and bathrooms on the ground floor, and the comb-shape concrete pergola, create different spaces as time passes by. Reflections on the concrete and the mirrors transform the static space into a dynamic one. Lastly, formwork through holes, which during the building process are used so that threaded rods go through the walls and hold the formwork when the concrete is poured, are now used as light lens. Built out of bars of acrylic, they carry the sunlight to the inside during the day, generating spots of light over the folded surface of the wall; while at night, conversely, the exterior face is lighten with the transferring of the artificial light.

Students attend lecture about significance of Latino voters in 2016 election

first_imgFacebook Mark Johnson: the Board of Trustees’ chairman and his vision for TCU TAGSchart – interactiveembedded tweets Twitter Hunter Geiselhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/hunter-geisel/ Linkedin Student organization hosts haunted house for Halloween Farris said that some politicians seem to not understand Latino and Hispanic culture.“They may have gotten the memo that Latino voters are important, but they still haven’t yet understood the cultural nuances of what Latinos are interested in,” Farris said.According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the population of Latino Americans was only at 6 percent compared to other ethnic groups. As of 2010, that number has increased by 10 percent, meaning that almost one-fifth of Americans considered themselves to be Latino or Hispanic.Latino Americans 1980-2010Create pie chartsSo, what does this mean for this year’s election? The Pew Research Center said since 1960, America’s Latino population has increased nearly ninefold.Even though they keep growing in numbers, the Pew Research Center said the number of eligible voters is increasing faster than the number of Latinos actually voting.Despite the trend of Latino voters voting for Democrats and Clinton maintaining a 50-point lead among Latinos, a Pew Research poll showed Latinos began to lose their satisfaction with the country’s direction during President Barack Obama’s second term.Farris said that she encourages everyone, especially millennials, to vote this year, whether or not they are Latino.Ariel Leon, a junior marketing major and member of ULA, said that Farris’ presentation was extremely informative.“[Dr. Farris’ information] is certainly motivating people,” Leon said. “The fact that they don’t want one candidate to win is a big motivation to vote for the greater candidate.” Hunter Geiselhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/hunter-geisel/ ReddIt TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Hunter Geisel ReddIt printThe United Latino Association hosted a lectured discussion on Tuesday about the roles and issues Latino voters are considering in the 2016 Presidential Election.ULA and Chi Upsilon Sigma, TCU’s Hispanic sorority, had assistant political science professor Dr. Emily Farris teach the attendees about the significance of the Hispanic and Latin American vote in this year’s Presidential Election.Dr. Farris teaches American politics. Her recent research has been on Latino and political behavior, asking questions about political involvement with traditionally marginalized groups in the U.S. The lecture began with a story about the “Great Tamale Incident,” when President Gerald Ford ate a tamale without removing the husk of the traditional Mexican dish. This story began Farris’ general discussion about how some politicians, even to this day, are not aware of Latino culture.“We still see this kind of mistaken outreach to Latinos today,” Farris said before presenting the most recent example of mistaken outreach with Donald Trump’s Cinco De Mayo tweet:Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics! https://t.co/ufoTeQd8yA pic.twitter.com/k01Mc6CuDI— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 5, 2016Farris then began to discuss a common practice between both parties: “Hispandering.” According to linguist Ben Zimmer and Duke University Press’ Charles Carson, “Hispandering” is the “political pandering by elected officials or candidates seeking to win over Hispanic votes.”Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has also been accused of “Hispandering” after the launch of her web page “7 Things Hillary Clinton has in common with your ‘abuela.’” This inspired the #NotMyAbuela tweets from people who did not see any similarities with Clinton and mocked her attempts of doing so:center_img Students and others gather in Sid Rich and grab some Latin American food before they sit down.

Jussie Smollett countersues city of Chicago for ‘maliciously prosecuting him in bad faith’

first_imgiStoc(CHICAGO) — Former Empire actor Jussie Smollett has filed a counter lawsuit against the city of Chicago, claiming that authorities “maliciously” prosecuted him after he claimed he was attacked by two masked assailants in January.The lawsuit, filed by Smollett’s attorneys in the Northern District of Illinois on Tuesday, claims that the city of Chicago “maliciously” prosecuted Smollett “in bad faith” and filed criminal charges against him “without probable cause.”On Jan. 29, Smollett told police he was attacked near his Chicago apartment by two masked men who poured an “unknown chemical substance on him” and wrapped a rope around his neck. Smollett later told police in a follow-up interview that the assailants yelled “MAGA country,” reportedly in reference to President Donald Trump’s slogan, “Make America Great Again.”As doubts about his story developed, police questioned two brothers in connection to the alleged attack, who told authorities Smollett allegedly paid them to help stage the crime.Smollett was later indicted by a grand jury on 16 counts including felony disorderly conduct in relation to filing a false report.The charges ignited a media firestorm around Smollett’s claims, but prosecutors, while maintaining that Smollett was guilty, dropped the felony disorderly charge against him in favor of an “alternative resolution” that involved him performing community service and forfeiting the remainder of his $10,000 bond to Cook County.The counter lawsuit was filed in response to a lawsuit the city filed against Smollett in April, requesting $130,000 in civil penalties, damages and attorney’s fees and costs arising from Smollett’s “false statements.”A federal judge ruled last month that the city’s lawsuit against Smollett could proceed, despite a motion from his attorney’s to dismiss it.Smollett’s attorneys denied that Smollett orchestrated and planned a fake attack and admonished the police department for continuing to imply that Smollett was guilty after the charges were dropped, according to the court documents.The document also states that the city of Chicago “is not entitled to recover further costs for services” because Smollett already paid $10,000.The lawsuit is seeking a jury trial and that Smollett be awarded compensatory and punitive damages, the amount of which will be determined at trial.A representative for the office of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

A survey of 289 HR professionals by Croner Consulting also finds people inemployment are likely to drink more heavily than those not working. It says one in four male employees regularly drinks over the recommendedweekly alcohol limit, while only one in seven female workers overindulges. Richard Smith, consultant on employment law at Croner Consulting, said hewas surprised at the low number of companies monitoring sick days, even thoughthey suspected alcohol is to blame for absence.
