Is the Sherwood Forest alive with the sound of music? The answer is yes, according to NBC. The network is working with Boardwalk Entertainment Group to develop a musicalized Robin Hood & Marian with as many as 60 new songs and an eye for a stage version, according to The Hollywood Reporter. View Comments Songwriters Evan “Kidd” Bogart and Emanuel “Eman” Kiriakou, who are responsible for a string of pop hits for the likes of Beyonce and Rihanna, are on board to create the original songs for the 10-hour series event. But don’t expect this to be your mother’s TV musical. “These projects are not typical musicals—we don’t have dance numbers and kick lines,” Boardwalk Entertainment Group co-founder Tim Bogart said about Robin Hood and another musical in the works, The 1970s, which focuses on the music business during that decade. A touring stage show of Robin Hood is part of the plan. Of course, NBC is the network that gave us The Sound of Music Live! and the upcoming Peter Pan Live! Meanwhile, Fox is trying to get into the game with Grease.
In his statement, released by his office in Bogotá, Garzón insisted that “Colombia is a country that respects human rights and international humanitarian law and one of those most committed to and that has most cooperated with the United Nations human-rights system and the inter-American human-rights system, as well as with their proceedings.” On 10 April, Colombian Vice President Angelino Garzón called on regional and international governmental human-rights organizations to develop contextualized analyses of the progress achieved by each of their member states. “International organizations can’t live off of the problems and difficulties of their member countries, but rather should work jointly with them to solve them,” he added. Finally, he recalled that, “as indicated in the report, on 27 December 2011, the Colombian state sent to the IACHR its observations on each of the points of special concern, and the Commission appreciated the state’s readiness to engage in constructive dialogue with the IACHR in order to move forward in protecting the human rights of Colombia’s inhabitants.” Responding to the annual report of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), released on 9 April, Garzón said that the reports written by that organization should “make clear the progress achieved by countries and the difficulties that they face, including the violence generated by illegal armed organizations and criminal practices such as drug trafficking.” Nevertheless, he indicated that the Colombian Government “will move to make a careful and detailed review of the [IACHR] document and will continue promoting, jointly with civil society, the adoption of the actions and measures that may be needed to guarantee to the entire population the right to live in tranquility, wellbeing, and peace.” When referring to Colombia, the IACHR said that it continues to suffer “very serious human rights violations” due to its internal conflict, and it noted that despite the Government’s efforts, there remains a “serious problem” of internally displaced people and a lack of legal proceedings against agents of Government forces accused of extrajudicial executions.

I know you feel like I’m setting us up for failure here, but I’m actually doing us a favor.On the surface, this video may embarrass us and our piddling gift-giving abilities. It may make our ladies look at us with disdain and say, “Hmph. Now THAT’S how you give a gift, moron!” It may remind us that we still haven’t gotten a gift for our wife whose birthday is THIS FRIDAY OMG DAMMIT….But don’t look at it like any of that. Look at it as motivation. Inspiration!! An example of the type of creativity that you can apply to your relationship, that your significant other will treasure immensely and for eternity.Unless she’s like, a golddigger, then this won’t really help you much…Anyway, internet legend has it that this guy, in an attempt to one-up his own prior year’s gift (“Will you marry me?”) found an old relic from his Fiancee’s childhood, and embarked on a monstrously time-consuming search for an exact replica, to replace the parts of the original that had been lost through the years.The result was incredibly touching as you will see and HEY, WHO THE HELL IS PEELING ONIONS IN HERE?!?!?
Because every Member is different, and every Membership base is different, it is not wise to develop cookie-cutter approaches to meeting the financial needs of your Members. So, you don’t, right? Instead, you ask them: What are your needs? What do you prefer? Right?The marketing of financial services is changing. Not so long ago, transactions with the bank were largely completed at the bank – face to face. Then, things began to change:Call centers. Online banking.Price comparison sites.Mobile apps. Digital wallets.Robo-advice.Live chat.A basic Marketing perspective argues that – even through all of the disruptions – there are “functional needs” and “emotional needs” that must be met. Doing so will create Members who will be loyal to your credit union. Functional needs include attributes such as: speed of service, accuracy, a website that is easy to use, fast responses to loan applications, friendliness, and competence. Emotional needs involve a bonding between Members and their credit unions and are reflected in these two questions: “How close do I feel toward my credit union?” and “How much do I trust my credit union?” Emotional bonding is nurtured through proactive customer service, exceptional issues management, going out of your way to help, and delivering on promises quickly and conveniently. continue reading » 23SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

Topics : Rio Tinto Chief Executive Jean-Sebastien Jacques on Friday apologized for distress caused by Rio’s destruction last month of two ancient and sacred Aboriginal caves in Western Australia, pledging full cooperation with an Australian government inquiry.”We are very sorry for the distress we have caused the PKKP in relation to Juukan Gorge and our first priority remains rebuilding trust with the PKKP,” Jacques said in a statement, referring to the Puutu Kunti Kurrama and Pinikura (PKKP) people.The apology marked Jacques’ first public comments on the event since it occurred more than two weeks ago. Head of iron ore Chris Salisbury had previously expressed the miner’s remorse, although stopped short of saying Rio had done anything wrong in an interview with Australia media. With state government approval, the world’s biggest iron ore miner destroyed two caves at Juukan Gorge that had previously contained evidence of continual human habitation stretching back 46,000 years as part of its Brockman mine expansion in the iron-rich Pilbara region.Australia’s Senate agreed on Thursday to begin a national inquiry into how the destruction of a cultural and historically significant site occurred. Under terms of the inquiry the joint standing committee on Northern Australia must report back by Sept. 30.”Rio Tinto will fully cooperate with the inquiry,” Jacques said his statement.The miner said it would also continue to support reforms to Western Australia’s Aboriginal Heritage Act, under which permission to disturb the sites was granted in a process that denies traditional owners right of appeal. “Rio Tinto has a long history of working in partnership and creating shared value with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities around our operations and across Australia more broadly. We remain absolutely committed to continuing to do so,” Jacques said.
Linkedin As the Sumatran rhinoceros inches closer to extinction, conservationists have called for serious intervention to restore a viable wild population. The proposed efforts include a captive breeding program for the solitary creatures.Sumatran rhinos, the smallest living rhinos and the only Asian rhinos with two horns, are critically endangered, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). In the Malaysian section of Borneo, one of the historic habitats of Sumatran rhinos, the species was declared extinct last year.The remaining population is small and dispersed, with fewer than 80 rhinos spread across three habitats in Sumatra and one habitat in East Kalimantan, according to an estimate by the Environment and Forestry Ministry. The largest population is thought to be at Gunung Leuser National Park in Aceh.In the past, Sumatran rhinos were also foun… #Sumatran-rhino sumatran-rhino rhinoceros endangered-animal rhino #wildlife wildlife-protection #animal endangered-species #EndangeredSpecies Topics : Facebook Forgot Password ?

By: Mary Isenhour, Governor Wolf’s Chief of Staff SHARE Email Facebook Twitter BLOG: Fighting Hunger In Pennsylvania, All Year Long Holidays, Human Services, The Blog The season of giving is upon us, and one of the most important things we can all give is our time. Today, Governor Wolf and I stopped by Downtown Daily Bread to help serve lunch to needy Harrisburg residents.Governor Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf understand how serious the issue of hunger in Pennsylvania is, and are personally invested in addressing it. Every year, they contribute to food charities throughout the commonwealth and volunteer their time at local soup kitchens.#PAgov snapshot → Governor Wolf and FL Frances Wolf lend a hand at Our Daily Bread in York this morning. pic.twitter.com/0615c29vAO— Governor Tom Wolf (@GovernorTomWolf) June 11, 2015According to the most recent data, more than 1.8 million Pennsylvanians — one in seven — are at risk of hunger and may not know when their next meal is coming. That number includes over 564,000 children — one in five. These numbers are alarming to governor, myself, and the entire administration. That’s why we are so committed to improving food security in Pennsylvania.Governor Wolf has secured in the current budget framework the largest investment in years to the commonwealth’s food security systems. That includes $3 million to fund — for the first time — the Pennsylvania Agricultural Surplus System (PASS). PASS will provide the state’s emergency food providers with resources to support Pennsylvania’s farmers who produce locally-sourced foods to those who need it most.In September, Governor Wolf also issued an executive order to establish a ‘Governor’s Food Security Partnership,’ in which a newly-appointed advisor will serve a variety of duties to promote interagency cooperation to evaluate and strengthen the state’s policies on fighting hunger.While the Wolf Administration continues to work to engage the private sector, non-profits, and other stakeholders in developing a long-term, sustainable way to ensure Pennsylvanians aren’t going hungry, we can all contribute to our own communities. Whether it’s donating to the local food bank, or spending your lunch hour serving soup to the needy — please remember that these seemingly small efforts can go a long way with those struggling to figure out their next meal.
