Annual Cool Jazz Clean Water Celebrates Its 17th Year

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Cool Jazz Clean WaterThe 17th Annual Cool Jazz Clean Water, a fundraiser event put on by nine area Rotary Clubs, will be held on November 17, 2018 at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. The daytime portion of the event will give Thurston County high school jazz bands a chance to showcase their skills during the first part of the day, then at night, adults will enjoy a cool jazz band, wine and beer tastings, and bid on silent auction baskets. The annual fundraising event will raise funds to purchase new and refurbished band instruments for students, sponsor youth to attend the Youth Summit and Camp Hope, and fund Rotary Club International water projects in developing countries.About Cool Jazz Clean WaterCool Jazz Clean Water Event started in 2001, as a way to raise funds for an International Humanitarian Project that included water projects in Malawi Africa. That first event combined the offering of a unique venue for area high school jazz bands to participate in an adjudicated music event, and an evening Jazz Concert for the community.  Approximately $20,000 of the net proceeds from this first ticketed and sponsored event went to fund water projects in Malawi.Over the next sixteen years, the event has evolved into a program that is presented as the “Cool Jazz Clean Water Capital Jazz Festival and Wine Tasting Event,” or “Cool Jazz Clean Water.” The net proceeds are split between funding Rotary-sponsored water projects in Africa, purchase of new and refurbishing instruments for the four local School Districts for low income students and the rest is designated to a jointly planned “working together for youth” workshop attended by leaders from Thurston County youth programs and opportunities for youth to attend Camp Hope.last_img read more

Half-time: Watford 1 Brentford 0

first_imgOdion Ighalo scored two minutes before half-time to put Watford ahead at Vicarage Road.The striker was adjudged to have been fouled by Tony Craig and saw his resulting penalty saved by David Button but was able to slot home from the rebound.Earlier, Ighalo headed Lloyd Dyer’s delivery against the bar and Bees full-back Jake Bidwell needed to produce a fine last-ditch challenge to thwart Diego Fabbrini.Brentford then began to assert themselves and Hornets keeper Heurelho Gomes was called into action, saving from Jonathan Douglas at the far post following Alan Judge’s cross.Jota then created a chance for himself with some lovely skill to beat two men before his effort was pushed away by Gomes.And Judge, who has been excellent in midfield, volleyed narrowly wide four minutes before the break.But just as Brentford seemed to be getting on top, they found themselves behind.Brentford: Button; McCormack, Tarkowski, Craig, Bidwell; Douglas, Diagouraga; Odubajo, Judge, Jota; Gray. Subs: Bonham, Dean, Tebar, Toral, Betinho, Pritchard, Proschwitz.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Dairy groups urge trade officials to challenge new protectionist dairy policy in Canada

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Dairy organizations in the United States, Australia, the European Union, Mexico and New Zealand today issued a joint letter to their respective trade and agriculture officials, expressing indignation about Canada’s recent actions to deepen its already prohibitive restrictions on dairy trade.“For years U.S. exporters have borne the brunt of a continuing procession of new Canadian policy tools intended to curtail dairy imports,” said Tom Suber, president of the U.S. Dairy Export Council. “TPP has included new features to move toward more open trade by expanding market access compared to the status quo; but Canada’s been doing its best to erode longstanding existing access as much as possible before this agreement is even put in place.”The groups said Canada’s increasingly protectionist policies violate “international trade obligations, hold out the prospect of trade diversion with attendant global price-depressing impacts and are in conflict with the principles of free markets and fair and transparent trade.”The U.S. groups, including the National Milk Producers Federation, the U.S. Dairy Export Council and the International Dairy Foods Association, oppose a Canadian Agreement in Principle recently concluded between Canada’s dairy producers and processors. The agreement, which is undergoing finalization and review in Canada, would provide an incentive to substitute Canadian dairy ingredients for imported dairy ingredients and would unfairly subsidize exports of Canadian dairy products. If ratified, the agreement would take effect Nov. 1, 2016.“The dairy trade situation with Canada has gone from bad to worse this year and now Canada is contemplating doubling down on that terrible track record,” said Jim Mulhern, president and CEO of the National Milk Producers Federation. “Enough is enough; Canada needs to stop shirking its dairy commitments and hold up its end of already negotiated agreements.”In addition to the three U.S. organizations, the other dairy groups are the Australian Dairy Industry Council, the European Dairy Association, the European Whey Products Association, the European Association of Dairy Trade, Mexico National Chamber of Industrial Milk and the Dairy Companies Association of New Zealand. Each of the dairy organizations asked officials in their respective countries to initiate a WTO dispute settlement proceeding to challenge the agreement once its details are announced.In the letter sent jointly to U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman and to the other government trade officials, the dairy organizations stated that the Agreement in Principle would breach Canada’s trade obligations under the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). They said it also would undermine the intent of the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).“Canada’s continued disregard for the provisions in its pacts with trade partners is unacceptable,” said Connie Tipton, president and CEO of the International Dairy Foods Association. “These protectionist policies are in direct conflict with the principles of free markets and fair trade, which trade agreements like TPP aim to promote.”last_img read more

The team took part in a dunk contest, emceed by offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola, and the results were really quite impressive.Who’s the best dunker on @RazorbackFB?— Arkansas Razorbacks (@ArkRazorbacks) December 22, 2015That is defensive end and former high school hoops star Jamario Bell taking over the show at the end. Our only regret is that Tretola didn’t get involved himself. He’ll just have to settle for throwing touchdown passes.[Razorbackers]last_img read more
