Who will replace Aramis Ayala? Let’s Talk About It

first_img Senator Lindsey Graham just keeps making things worse with his big mouth. He declares that if IIhan Omar would of wore a MAGA hat, that she wouldn’t be the subject of Trump telling her to go back to where she came from. Isn’t that just unbelievable? Graham also when on further to suggest, that if another Somalian would wear a MAGA hat, and support Trump and his administration, they wouldn’t be deported, and might even be invited to the WH for dinner!

This is the first of a two-part series as Rod and Greg will discuss with the candidate’s issues related to the death penalty, bullying, the opioid crisis and more. LET’S TALK NATION this is your chance to call in and voice your opinions and ask questions.Deborah Barra Reply Mama Mia Reply I see where Trump has got the DOJ to go after Omnarosa since he fired her from her WH job. Something about a disclosure form she didn’t fill out, and send in after her firing from her job….now the DOJ has been instructed to go after her, with the filing of a lawsuit against her. She could be fined 50,000 dollars! They claim she violated ethic laws…..OMG, 50,000 dollars just because she didn’t file a simple form? Now she has had to hire lawyers to fight this lawsuit off. Trump meanwhile lets his own ethics violations run wild, along with his family members, and their questionable ethics, and how about that fuzzy, warm little relationship with his aide, KellyAnn Conway, and her outright ethic violations, the Hatch Act ones, that he totally ignores? Oh, I forgot, she kisses his you know what! Yes, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, his old faithful, finally got her call from Trump and was shown the door, GOOD RIDDANCE!…..boy, oh boy, Trump is such a dirt bag! Mama Mia Tommy Zeigler is innocent. Regarding your comment about going to the Zeigler store to buy furniture, yes lots of people went to the Zeigler furniture store to buy furniture. They were in the furniture business for 39 years before Tommy’s wrongful conviction caused them to close the business shortly thereafter. We look forward to his exoneration. Regarding the death penalty for people who are not wrongfully convicted and admit they committed murder, I am totally against it. My former husband was murdered by a gang. We did not want the killers to get the death penalty. We believe that killing is killing. It would not make us happy to wake up one day and know today is the day the killers will be killed. Revenge is toxic. Forgiveness is reaching a higher level of consciousness. There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness. Mama Mia Reply Aramis Ayala didn’t inform voters that she was against the death penalty when she was running for elected office. The voters found out AFTERWARDS when she was elected. So I am not surprised she is leaving office. I am a Democrat, but I believe the death penalty is warranted in certain cases that go before the jury. I watched the Scott Nelson case on tv and on the internet, and watched the jurors recommend life in prison for him. I think back to when Tommy Zeigler, the Winter Garden furniture store owner was sentenced to life in prison by the jury recommendation, and his judge on the case, overthrew the jury’s recommendation, and sentenced Zeigler, to death, for killing his wife, her parents, and a customer well known around the furniture store, who also was described as a handyman. Too bad the laws of this state have changed, as this judge on Scott Nelson’s case would not be allowed to give Nelson death, like Zeigler, by overruling the jury’s recommendation of life in prison with no chance of parole, to death instead. This murder case at the W. T. Zeigler Furniture Store happened on Christmas Eve, 1975 and he was sentenced to death in 1976 I believe. Just look at how many years have gone by and he is still sitting on death row trying to find a way to get out! And to think, my mother and I, used to go to that furniture store on several occasions looking for furniture! Mama Mia July 15, 2019 at 7:24 pm When is Trump going to trot down to view the detention camps himself? Is he going to borrow Melania’s jacket that says “I really don’t care, do U” on the back, that Melania wore to McAllen, Texas to visit the detainment camp where children were detained and separated from their parents? July 19, 2019 at 12:31 am Mama Mia July 15, 2019 at 7:44 pm Look at what is going on in Puerto Rico, with the protests in the streets to try to oust their governor out of office, who they want out for reasons of things he did, and they are nowhere as bad as the laws Trump has violated. That is what is needed to oust Trump out of office, just like in Puerto Rico, massive protests! Soldiers guarding the airports in the Revolutionary War……kidneys located within the heart…..this sort of junk out of Trump’s mouth is amusing to say the least, but when you examine what Crosby said about Trump, and think about the fact that this man holds the fate of our country in his leadership, that is scary stuff! I pray for this country, with this mad man in control, with his know it all intellect, and that he doesn’t know anything like the “stable genius” he claims he is, and with his no restraint, and pettiness, and with his holding the nuclear codes…..OMG! July 15, 2019 at 7:56 pm July 15, 2019 at 8:03 pm I watched the video of Kellyann Conway defending Donald Trump of his tirades about,” go back to where you came from,” talking about the 4 Congresswomen, and when a reporter was discussing Trump’s tweets, Kellyann asked the reporter in a snitty way, what was his ethnicity. Then she argued back and forth with him when he answered his ethnicity was not relevant to his questions about Trump. Kellyann is sickening, she is so snitty! I can’t wait for her to get Trump’s call, and be booted out the backdoor, just like Sarah Huckabee Sanders was. The sooner the better. Scary Moosey, the former WH employee, even he, as much as he LOVED Trump, says that Trump is a racist, and if Trump keeps up his junk, Scary Moosey says he won’t support him for re-election. Wake up Trump supporters, his former supporters are falling out like flies! Let’s Talk About It, with Rod Love and co-host Greg Jackson, is an edgy radio program that has a distinct “Apopka” tone.Rod LoveHosts Rod Love and Greg Jackson are well-known figures in Apopka. Love is a local businessman, was the co-chair of the Apopka Task Force against Violence, and was named the Orange County District 2 Commissioner. Jackson is a local attorney that ran for the Florida Legislature in 2016 for District 45, which includes a part of Apopka.The show airs on WOKB 1680AM on Mondays from 7-8 PM.

Its goal is to develop an understanding of the everyday needs and issues of people and assist in empowering them with the necessary information or motivation towards addressing such needs, all with the support of professionals or experts who will be the show’s guests.Greg Jackson  Let’s Talk About It has an interactive style of information sharing that is both entertaining and educational.  It acts as a vehicle for civic and faith-based organizations, small businesses and everyday citizens to be able to work together to foster a progressive development of communities’ interactivity with one another.To join the conversation tonight, call Let’s Talk About It at 407-894-1680. Reply July 19, 2019 at 12:24 am Even Meghan McCain, John McCain’s daughter says that Senator Lindsey Graham has changed and is not like the man she knew and used to love. She used to call him Uncle, she was so close to him. I say don’t trust him, he changes with the wind now. Very strange what is going on with him, and it is hard to figure him out …..why the change? Mama Mia Reply July 19, 2019 at 12:12 am Please enter your name here Mama Mia LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply August 16, 2019 at 5:25 pm Reply I like what rock legend, David Crosby, said about Donald Trump…..that he has reached a new level of low, and that he does wrong on purpose, and is dragging down this country! That he has no morals, no restraint, and no intelligence, and that to him, women are for nothing but putty cat grabbing…….yes, David, you summed Trump up totally in so few words! Amen, David. He also has called him a disgusting person….so on clue! Amen, again, David Crosby, I agree wholeheartedly. I only wish that Trump, Pence, and Senator Lindsey Graham, would be locked up in those border detention camps for at least 40 days, and see how they would like it in there, since especially after touring the facilities, when Graham got back home, he said he didn’t care if the people were locked up 400 days……I used to listen to Crosby Stills and Nash so much in the 70s that I wore my record albums out! When you have a president that worships the likes of that mean old sheriff that was out in Arizona, you can’t expect nothing human out of Trump. I would like to add to David Crosby’s description of Trump, NO HEART either……. You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address herelast_img read more

Using mobile phones in fundraising

Using mobile phones in fundraising Howard Lake | 28 April 2000 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  43 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis “How you can use ordinary GSM-phone in charity?” he asks. “Here are some examples.”“First of course you can use premium rate telephone numbers. Of course they are used not only for mobile phones but also ordinary telephone. However, in mobile-technology you can combine premium rate telephone numbers, SMS text messaging and, if you want, the Internet.” “It has already been used in some charity lotteries. You buy your lottery ticket using a premium number for around one or two pounds, and you get your code and password with a SMS text-message to your mobile phone. With this code and password your can play the game on the Internet and if you’re lucky you can win a new car. The benefit of this system is its low operating costs and real time information.”“Secondly, you can replace a premium call with a premium SMS text-message. You can send a text message with your mobile phone to a particular number and receive something back, such as information, a joke or a lottery number. You are debited one pound or so which is credited to the charity. One very successful example is buying a charity logo for your mobile phone.”“We shall be launching a Web site in May where you can see and download the logos of a range of Finnish charities. You can pick your favorite, and send the name of the logo with a SMS text message to our charity’s number 17234. A few seconds later you get a reply message on your mobile phone. The logo you receive then replaces your telephone operator’s logo in your phone. This will cost you about £2 which will appear on your next telephone bill.”“Of course you can send a logo with a message to your friend and ask her/him to spread the message about this charity and the new method of supporting it. It will cost them the same price.”“If your charity has a particular campaign melody, then you make it available for use as a ring-tone. With same systems you can pick it up with simple SMS text message.”“Unfortunately, currently these models are possible only in NOKIA-phones, but in Finland about 80% of all mobile phones are NOKIA.”“You are right with your supposition that mobile-based fundraising appeals will often involve a cross-promotion between the charity and the mobile phone companies. But it won’t be happening in the USA first, simply because the two biggest mobile phone brands are NOKIA from Finland and Eriksson from Sweden.”“There are other ways of using mobile phones to fundraise. If your are running a charity auction online then your can send a message about new offers to all participants and they can do take up these offers with a mobile text message. In other words, they can participate without sitting at a PC.”“Of course you can send charity postcards with your phone. You send the card number, the recipient’s name and address and your personal message. The recipient will the get a card the next day with her/his ordinary mail.”“You can link radio appeals and GSM phones too. If you advertise your charity on local radio at rush-hour, for example, when people are sitting in their cars, you can also send a text message to all mobile phones in the receiving area at the same time. In the radio advert, just tell people that by pressing the call button they can donate £2 to your charity.”“If you have a fundraising concert or radio telethon you can send messages with GSM phones to people who are involved, or you can invite them to participate. For example, you can ask people to vote by phone for their favourite songs which are then played on air.I have done most of my mobile phone fundraising work with Sonera Zed Ltd but you should also visit Wapit. Finnish fundraising consultant Petteri Niskanen explains how mobile ‘phones can be used in fundraising.Finnish fundraising consultant Petteri Niskanen has responded quickly to today’s UK Fundraising story on WAP phone fundraising. “Unfortunately your guess is wrong,” he said. “If you’re talking about fundraising using any mobile phones, then it has already been done some years ago in Finland and Sweden. Even if you’re talking only about WAP technology then you only have to wait for summer.”Niskanen then shared some thoughts on fundraising using mobiles.

De Bourgues, 24, had been in Kazakhstan since 22 April as an editorial adviser for an Athens-based firm called SML Strategic Media, which had sent him there for three months to do an advertising feature for the US magazine Foreign Affairs. “We urge the authorities to do all they can to solve this murder and we hope the French government will follow the investigation very closely,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “We express our sympathy with his family and his employers.”Three armed men, two of them masked, broke into De Bourgues’ fourth-floor apartment in Kurmangazy Street in the middle of the afternoon. The journalist’s Kazakh interpreter/translator was with him at the time. The intruders tied both of them up and demanded money in Russian. The prisoners did not resist and the the attackers took a computer, digital camera, mobile phone and a lot of money. Then they took the journalist into another room and stabbed him to death. The interpreter managed to break free after they left and called the police. An autopsy on De Bourgues’ body showed the attackers first tried to strangle him. He had had several meetings with top government and parliamentary officials as part of his reporting assignment and had been due to fly to Greece the day he was killed.

Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi, a close al-Sadr aide, had made a strong appeal to the kidnappers to release him at once. Al-Sadr’s office denied any involvement in the kidnapping.________________________________13.08.2004 – British journalist kidnapped and threatened with executionReporters Without Borders today denounced what it called the “despicable” threat to kill British Sunday Telegraph journalist James Brandon (photo) by kidnappers who seized him from a hotel in the southern Iraqi city of Basra on 12 August and demanded that US troops withdraw from the holy city of Najaf within 24 hours in exchange for his life.”We call on the kidnappers to free him immediately and unconditionally,” it said. “Journalists are civilians and not part of the fighting. Their job is to inform the public and in no circumstances can they be used as objects in bargaining.”The worldwide press freedom organisation noted that, with 33 journalists and assistants killed so far in the Iraqi conflict, the media had already paid “a very heavy price” and “continue to do their job there in extremely hazardous conditions.” It said the kidnapping and threat to kill Brandon was “a threat to all media working in Iraq.” Brandon, 23, was seized from his hotel room by several dozen unidentified gunmen who had reportedly demanded to see the hotel check-in book and accused the hotel owner of harbouring foreigners. The Associated Press news agency said they shot Brandon twice in the leg. The kidnappers released a video in which they said they would only free him if US forces besieging Najaf left the city within the next 24 hours. They described themselves simply as “sons of the Iraqi people.” In the video, Brandon stated his name and newspaper and said he was just a journalist whose job was to report the news. Sunday Telegraph deputy editor Matthew d’Ancona said Brandon was in Basra filing material for this Sunday’s paper. “We are pursuing his situation with the greatest concern,” he said.
