The Guild of Professional Estate Agents has installed the screens in its flagship office there, to run expos of the property portfolios of their 800-strong membership and the Fine & Country portfolio from Park Lane.InTouch Display is the market leader in touch screen technology, using screens which are clearly readable in direct sunlight – an essential at any time, never mind in one of the longest heatwaves for years. It’s a facet that sets InTouch Display apart from other budget screens, which are rendered useless on bright days. InTouch Display screens are of the highest quality and resolution, with brightness calibrated at 3500 units – a critical measure (and question to ask!) which guarantees performance in all light conditions.The InTouch Display software can also incorporate a key business generator – a function which generate valuations, capturing users’ contact details who browse the window out of hours. Agents nationwide advertise local community events and the charities they support – drawing attention to the touch screen and their office rather than just displaying their property portfolios.“We are delighted with our new touch screens from InTouch Display,” said The Guild’s Paul Jamieson. “We get plenty of footfall and our touch screens definitely capture the attention of the public and generate enquiries. We have one of the most prestigious office locations in the world and we now have the touch screens to match.”www.intouchdisplay.co.ukproptech shoptech In Touch Display InTouch Display touch screen window touch screen technology August 27, 2018The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

A red fox interrupts Ocean City High School’s varsity soccer game against Oakcrest on Thursday (Oct. 29) at the Red Raiders’ home field on Shelter Road. A red fox on the field was the only thing that slowed the Ocean City High School boys’ soccer team during a 6-0 rout of Oakcrest on Thursday.“It’s been an up-and-down season, but the team is building momentum going into the playoffs,” according to Pat Pawling, a team parent who passed along the photo above. “A perennial favorite, the team is now a sleeper, due to an uneven offense and a tougher-than-usual schedule. Keeper Russell Lindsay’s most interesting save was shooing away the fox that sauntered onto the field.”Fox sightings are increasingly common in Ocean City.Read more:Readers Share Red Fox Photos From Ocean CityFearless Red Foxes Getting Cozy With Life in Ocean City

Matthew Fell, CBI Chief UK Policy Director, said: The settlement scheme will open in a phased way later this year and will be fully open by 30 March 2019.The deadline for applications will be 30 June 2021.The Home Office will continue to engage with stakeholders, including employers, local authority representatives and community groups, about the detailed design of the scheme as we learn from the first pilot with NHS trusts and universities in the north-west of England starting on 28 August.More details on how EU citizens and their families can obtain settled status in the UK can be found in the statement of intent.All content will be translated into the core EU 23 languages over the summer. Our settlement scheme will offer security and certainty to EU citizens living in the UK. Once the scheme has launched, employers, industry groups and charities will play a vital role in ensuring they can secure their status quickly and easily. The toolkit will help us to reach out to all EU citizens living in this country and help them get their new immigration status. EU workers provide crucial skills and labour to businesses of all sizes and sectors throughout the UK, and pay taxes that help fund public services. Employers have worked with the government to ensure information about claiming ‘settled status’ is valuable and accessible. We’ll be asking our members to share the new toolkit with everyone who’ll find it useful. Employers, industry groups and community groups in the UK will be able to give EU citizens practical advice on how to apply for settled status with the help of a new toolkit published by the Home Office.The toolkit was developed with employers and industry groups and includes videos, how-to-guides, leaflets and posters.The Home Secretary launched the toolkit at the Home Office yesterday at a gathering of some of the UK’s biggest employers of EU citizens, as well as industry bodies, local government agencies and community groups, many of whom played a key part in developing the toolkit.The Home Secretary said:
Writer, performance artist, poet and transgender activist Andrea Jenkins shared her poetry and essays with the Saint Mary’s community March 28 as the keynote speaker for Saint Mary’s Student Diversity Week.Jenkins is the first African American, openly transgender woman to hold office in the United States. Currently, she is city council Vice President of Minneapolis Ward 8. Jenkins began her presentation by acknowledging the privilege one has as an American. Transgender Day of Visibility on March 31 and the fiftieth anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s death on April 4 are two important days she said she wanted the audience to recognize throughout her speech.“I want to acknowledge that we stand on stolen land, indigenous and native land, built by stolen labor, by Africans brought to America,” she said. “We must always keep this understanding in mind, because history gives context to the issues that we face today.”Jenkins said she got involved with politics because she wanted to devote herself to helping those in need. “I’ve been working all of my adult life trying to help and improve people’s lives,” she said. “Politics is about improving people’s lives.” Much of the poetry Jenkins writes is inspired by the art, culture and stories she encounters, especially those related to the early days of hip hop music. “Hip hop music was a force to be reckoned with,” she said. “I have been shaped, formed and informed by the music of the urban community all my life … Back then, Chicago had its own distinct musical sound. Chicago was perfectly suited to embrace the music that came out of the Bronx. It was gritty, grimy, cold and fast. Everybody had a hustle in Chicago.” The rappers she grew up with, Jenkins remarked, brought the realism of black neighborhoods and the black community to the forefront. “They described the stark reality of black neighborhoods all around the country,” she said. “Broken glass everywhere. Roaches, rats, junkies in the alley with baseball bats. So much pain. So much realism. Everybody in the hood knew what they were talking about, but no one had ever put it out there like that before for the entire world to see.”The music industry also reflected the bitter reality of life in inner city communities, Jenkins noted. “All of this was taking place in the midst of the crack cocaine epidemic that was ravaging inner city communities across America, and black rappers were not immune,” she said. “In fact, they were some of the most vicious perpetrators. The Notorious B.I.G. said ‘either you’re slinging crack rock, or you got a wicked jump shot.’ That was the sentiment of many black youth in America, and unfortunately, some thirty-five plus years later, that proclamation still reigns.”Even so, hip hop was able to endure hardships and become economically successful and bold enough to inspire Jenkins to be true to who she was inside, she said. “But along with the economic success comes this attitude of, I can do what I want, say what I want and be who I am,” she said. “And that sentiment was not lost on me. I always knew in my heart that I was destined to be a woman. You see, I was born in this obviously male body when I had this heart of a woman, but for a long time I was afraid to admit it. I tried to conform to society’s expectations of what I thought a man should be. Hip hop indirectly provided me with the courage to fully express myself.” Jenkins said she found a new way to express herself through spoken word poetry, which is often considered an offset of rap and hip hop. “I had found my community,” she said. “I began to hang out with local spoken word artists and poets and writers, and I found myself writing about the identity that I had for so long hidden deep within my psyche. And people responded. So I gradually began to outwardly express myself. And quite to my surprise, I didn’t receive the mass rejection I thought I would.”She read openly from her book of poetry and spoke of being oppressed and those who oppress. “If there is such a thing as the oppressed, then there must be an oppressor,” Jenkins said. “This has weighed heavy on my mind for a long time … If there is such a thing as an oppressor then there must be the oppressed. It is a mutually accepted relationship. Why do we strive for the same ideals as the oppressor?”We should not be afraid to love who we want to love, she said. “Are we afraid to let real love shine?” Jenkins said. “Afraid to say, I’m in love with a big, black, transgender goddess and she loves me back?”We must strive to not let ourselves become the oppressors, she concluded. “If we are the oppressed, then it is imperative that we not become the oppressors,” Jenkins said. “We got to love every color in the rainbow. Respect the beauty that lives in each and every one of us. When your blues become my blues, we can sing ‘Oh Happy Day.’”Tags: Andrea Jenkins, Hip hop, Poetry, Politics, Transgender rights

Saint Michael’s provides education with a social conscience, producing graduates with the intellectual tools to lead successful, purposeful lives that will contribute to peace and justice in our world. Founded in 1904 by the Society of St. Edmund and headed by President John J. Neuhauser, Saint Michael’s College is located three miles from Burlington, Vermont, one of America’s top college towns. It is identified by the Princeton Review as one of the nations Best 371 Colleges, and is included in the 2011 Fiske Guide to Colleges. Saint Michael’s is one of only 280 colleges and universities nationwide, one of only 20 Catholic colleges, with a Phi Beta Kappa chapter. Saint Michael’s has 1,900 undergraduate students, some 500 graduate students and 100 international students. Saint Michael’s students and professors have received Rhodes, Woodrow Wilson, Pickering, Guggenheim, Fulbright, and other grants. The college is one of the nation’s Best Liberal Arts Colleges as listed in the 2010 U.S. News & World Report rankings.-30- Saint Michael’s College,Saint Michael’s College earned the rank of 93rd amongst National Liberal Arts Colleges in the 2011 edition of Best Colleges by U.S. News Media Group. U.S. News, the original rankings program, covers various categories of national and regional colleges and universities. The rankings are available today at www.usnews.com/colleges(link is external), and will also be published in the September issue of U.S. News & World Report, on newsstands starting August 31.Saint Michael’s shares the 93rd position with Allegheny (PA), Birmingham-Southern (AL), Millsaps (MS), St. Mary’s (IN), and Washington (MD) Colleges. Last year Saint Michael’s ranked 105th in the national liberal arts category, and before that Saint Michael’s ranked in the top 15 of the North Regional Master’s Universities for 17 years. Saint Michael’s was switched last year to the liberal arts category in the U.S. News arena as a result of a change in Carnegie classifications.Over the past two decades, the U.S. News college rankings, which group schools based on categories created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, has grown, according to U.S. News, to be the most comprehensive research tool for students and parents considering higher education opportunities.‘The U.S. News rankings have always been of interest to students and parents, and of course that matters to us,’ said Saint Michael’s President John J. Neuhauser. ‘We hope this jump in our position brings Saint Michael’s College to the attention of those students who can benefit from the exciting, intellectual, welcoming community of this college,’ Dr. Neuhauser added.Among the many factors weighed in determining the rankings, the key measures of quality are peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, alumni giving, and, for National Universities and National Liberal Art Colleges, “graduation rate performance” and high school counselor ratings of colleges. U.S. News has made some significant changes to the 2011 Best Colleges’ ranking methodology and presentation. For more details on these changes, go to www.usnews.com/collegemeth(link is external).The University of Vermont ranked 94th in the National Universities category, and was 88th last year; Middlebury ranked fourth in the Liberal Arts Colleges national category, this year and last year.

Court system funds escape the budget ax June 15, 2005 Regular News Court system funds escape the budget ax While Florida’s Access to Civil Legal Assistance Act lost all its funding to a gubernatorial veto, the court system got through Gov. Jeb Bush’s budget review nearly unscathed.State Courts Administrator Lisa Goodner said Bush cut $65,000 for an electronic access upgrade of the Supreme Court’s library and $75,000 for a courthouse improvement in Miami-Dade County, but other appropriations remained intact. That includes millions of dollars for maintenance and security upgrades to the Supreme Court, as well as 55 new judges.The approved budget also addressed concerns that Supreme Court staff salaries had lagged behind other agencies, making it difficult to find and keep qualified employees.“We’re very pleased that all the building maintenance and security issues for the Supreme Court building that were so important for maintaining the integrity of the building are in place,” Goodner said. “The pay issues for the Supreme Court employees that we were anxious to address for equity are all going to come through.”Next year, Goodner said the courts will be asking the legislature and governor to look at pay equity issues for the entire court system. She also said her office will be studying the Supreme Court library and “trying to come up with a comprehensive plan of where we’re going.”
