Should the Netanyahu government have barred "Squad" members and BDS advocates Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the country? Chattering classes in both countries quickly took sides. Surprising is how quickly major American Jewish organizations those one would most expect to defend Israel jumped to condemn its decision, arguing that it should have rolled out the red carpet for the two congresswomen. While their argument is that keeping the women out harms the Jewish State, it is their position that damages Israel and strengthens its enemies."A good faith visit to Israel is the best way to be exposed to its democracy, complexities, and range of views. And so while we absolutely disagree with the pro BDS positions of Reps. @IlhanMN amp; @RashidaTlaib, keeping them out is counterproductive," tweeted ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt on Thursday, echoing a nearly identical tweet sent out less than half an hour earlier by AIPAC, which declared "every member of Congress should be able to visit and experience our democratic ally Israel firsthand."

" Uniformed Division officers initiated road closures to vehicular and pedestrian traffic and MPD EOD responded to the scene and cleared the vehicle. Road closures remain in effect and will be lifted at the conclusion of the investigation."

Four year old Amelia Barnhouse had been on a trip to the Brecon Beacons in Wales where she played on a slide she remembered for the whole month.
Parked at a deserted spot, the car had a beacon light mounted on the top and a Delhi Police logo inscribed on the bonnet. Once the video surfaced on the internet, a senior official with Delhi Police told press outlets that the man doing push up was not a policeman but the friend of a driver of a private contractor who had hired the car at the time. It was he who climbed on top of what looks like a police vehicle, said police.
Jordan, a computer science and biomedical engineering graduate from Harvard University, believes the Beacon Chain design, as proposed by Ethereum Co Founder Vitalik Buterin, will ;make it a lot easier; for blockchain developers to deploy decentralized applications (dApps) on Ethereum.He explained that software architects will not be required to re learn new programming techniques in order to launch dApps (when using the Beacon Chain).
There are also bi weekly calls, and a researcher from Ethereum, called Justin Drake stated that the team of developers wants to prepare code specifications for phase zero until the end of June. Drake said that they are on track with the progress. However, the code simplifications are still coming through, thing that s wonderful. The process of combining is also happening because they want to find the final bugs.Phase Zero is the name of the first phase transition stage of the network of Ethereum, from Proof of Work (PoW) to a PoS consensus algorithm. Phase Zero is also known as Beacon Chain, and it takes part in a major network transition to Ethereum 2.0. It is set to launch a new block validation system, one in which the key role on the block proposals are of those validators, and not of miners.
March 21, 2019 4:38 pmJoe Biden is getting ready to run for president. Ahead of an expected campaign announcement in April, the former vice president is looking for ways to distinguish himself in the Democratic primary among the sizable field of candidates perhaps by pledging to serve only one term, or naming Stacey Abrams as his running mate, or announcing a slate of high profile endorsements out of the gate.

quot;Newfoundland and Labrador 's Opera on the Avalon (OOTA) will present ”Ours, ” an opera by Juno nominated Canadian composer John Estacio, with libretto by Governor General Award winning Newfoundland playwright Robert Chafe. ”Ours ” will be presented in two performances, on Nov. 9 and 11 at 7:30 p.m., at the St. John 's Arts and Culture Centre.OOTA, led by general and artistic director Cheryl Hickman is Atlantic Canada 's only professional opera company.Hickman, born and raised in St. John 's, said in a news release on Monday that ”Ours ” resonates far beyond the province 's borders, ”Our vision is to create a work that will be a legacy for all Canadians, to help us honour the memories of the past and to serve as an inspiration for our future, ' ' she said in the release. ”Newfoundland and Labrador is steeped in history and OOTA is dedicated to transforming that history into art. ” she added.OOTA commissioned ”Ours ” to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Beaumont Hamel, a First World War battle that devastated the ranks of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment on July 1, 1916. This production is being remounted to honour the centennial of the end of World War One.Internationally acclaimed baritone Andrew Love leads an all Canadian ensemble of 13, with a full chorus, in the role of Thomas Nangle, chaplain to the Regiment. The singers and orchestra are conducted by Judith Yan, with stage direction by Glynis Leyshon, and set design by Patrick Clark.In addition to baritone Andrew Love as Thomas Nangle, the cast features tenor Gordon Gietz as Archbishop Roche, head of the church in Newfoundland; soprano Lara Ciekiewicz as May, the fianc eacute;e of a troubled soldier who meets a tragic end; and Newfoundland born tenors Aaron Sheppard and Ryan Downey as Charlie and John, two members of the Newfoundland Regiment who lost their lives at the Battle of Beaumont Hamel. ”Ours is an attempt to speak to patriotism and nationhood, faith, and family. I think it has resonance beyond any specific discussion of war, ' ' Chafe said in a news release. ”It goes to places that examine our human need for meaning, our need to commemorate, and to make sense of those things that are difficult to remember ndash; but can 't be forgotten, ” he added. ”Ours ” tracks the social, political, and emotional aftermath of the battle of Beaumont Hamel through the story of Thomas Nangle, whose dedication, sacrifice, and renewal are the human embodiment of Newfoundland 's journey through the war, its horrific aftermath, and its re emergence as a province of Canada. Nangle was posted as chaplain to the Newfoundland Regiment shortly after Beaumont Hamel and served out the rest of the war with ”Ours. ”Following the war, he led efforts to exhume, identify, and properly bury the remains of much of the lost regiment across Europe, then almost single handedly established the existing five war memorial sites across Europe, as well as the Newfoundland National War Memorial in St. John 's.His hard work didn 't come without personal cost, however, and Nangle, disillusioned, left the priesthood and Newfoundland. Though his legacy stands in stone on two continents, his name ndash; of unparalleled importance in the history of Newfoundland ndash; has all but been lost to popular email@example.com
