Sea Bright Restaurant Owner Sues Mayor and Council

first_imgBy John Burton |SEA BRIGHT — The owner of Tommy’s Tavern + Tap has issues with the Sea Bright mayor and governing body and is taking them to court.The limited liability companies, 1030 Partners and 1030 Liquor Partners, that own and operate Tommy’s Tavern + Tap, 1030 Ocean Ave., and their managing partner, Thomas Bonfiglio, have filed a lawsuit naming Sea Bright, its mayor, Dina Long, and the six-member Borough Council as defendants. The suit raises a series of allegations against the elected officials charging they acted in an untoward and arbitrary manner concerning the popular restaurant, hobbling its ability to maximize its business potential.In an interview with The Two River Times this week, Bonfiglio said of the elected officials, “They make decisions, they don’t realize this is a business and there are consequences…They shoot from the hip.”The civil suit, filed by Freehold lawyer Robert Munoz on July 5, lays out a series of eight complaints brought against the officials. The plaintiffs maintain the existing municipal noise ordinance is “arbitrary, unreasonable, and capricious,” also alleging it is in violation of the state noise control act. The suit alleges the existing local ordinance “is overly inclusive, overly vague, and fails to specify the activity that it seeks to prohibit.” The governing body, by its actions, the court filing alleges, has infringed upon Bonfiglio’s civil rights, having “deprived Plaintiffs of their equal protection and due process, and the privileges secured by the laws and Constitution of this State…” namely by instilling restrictions that the suit argues have impeded Tommy’s Tavern + Tap.Another count alleges borough officials violated the state Open Public Meetings Act. That state law requires, in part, that most official actions be done in public after officials have duly advertised and provided adequate public notices of their intentions. Bonfiglio and his attorney maintain elected officials had communicated among themselves via phone calls, texts and emails around the time of May 19 regarding Tommy’s ongoing application before the borough land use board for expanding the restaurant’s use. That constituted an “intent to act as a unit,” among the elected officials, without informing the public, the complaint charged.“What I take exception to is the colluding,” on the part of Mayor Long and the Borough Council, Bonfiglio alleged.Bonfiglio opened Tommy’s two years ago, rebuilding on the site of the former borough post office and adjacent property which had had a gas station operating on it, both of which had been severely damaged by Super Storm Sandy in October 2012. Since opening, the location has proven to be increasingly popular. So much so that Bonfiglio sought to include additional seating at the back of the restaurant, on property backing up to the Shrewsbury River, and offer such attractions as music, bocce ball and cornhole tossing games on the site. Bonfiglio wound up squaring off with the borough combined Planning/Zoning Board, as well as facing opposition from residents of the neighboring Nautilus Condominiums and a Rumson homeowner over noise concerns.The Land Use Board in May approved an amended plan, which included no outdoor speakers or live music or entertainment but permitted outdoor dining overlooking the river.Since then, the Borough Council revised and approved its noise ordinance in an attempt to clarify the permitted from the excessive. Officials had sought to strike a balance between the number of entertainment destinations, most rebuilt and expanded since Sandy, and to accommodate residential locations in the borough’s downtown commercial district that for a number of sites sit right next to bars and restaurants operating into the late evening or early morning.Bonfiglio said this week that the elected officials are singling out his business, especially with the new noise ordinance and other conditions. “I think they’re trying to see how far they can push me,” he said. The complaint noted the location’s liquor license renewal was subject to additional restrictions, too. Those restrictions included restricting the sale and service of alcohol in the outdoor area after 10 p.m.“They’re not used to someone pushing back,” he said of the council.Borough attorney Roger J. McLaughlin, who is representing the mayor and council on this matter, did not respond to phone calls seeking comment.Borough Councilman Marc Leckstein drafted the noise ordinance adopted by the council. In response to some of the suit’s contentions, Leckstein said, “I can empathically say that the noise ordinance was not directed toward Tommy’s or any single establishment,” but to address concerns regarding all of businesses.Mayor Dina Long declined to comment directly on the suit on advice of the lawyer. “The one thing I would say,” she said, “it’s unfortunate that Mr. Bonfiglio chose to bring a lawsuit that’s going to cost our taxpayers when he could have initiated a conversation.”This article was first published in the July 13-20, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Broncos’ Hunt happy with improvement

first_imgHunt’s heroics were not enough, with the Broncos falling 21-20 to the Cowboys in another exhilarating golden point contest at Suncorp Stadium. Despite the loss, there are positive signs for Brisbane and their fans, with Hunt putting in an inspiring 80-minute performance. After receiving a lot of criticism during the week about his poor kicking performance in Round 1, Hunt bounced back in a big way and sent a message to his critics. The 26-year-old produced two try assists off the boot, putting two perfectly weighted grubber kicks in for James Roberts and Darius Boyd respectively. He also kicked an important 40/20 and accumulated 394 kicking metres for the match. It was a mature performance that saw Hunt named Brisbane’s man of the match, and if it wasn’t for Cowboy Johnathan Thurston’s field goal heroics, Hunt would be the halfback stealing the headlines. Despite the strong performance, Hunt told media after the clash that he still wants to work on aspects of his game and he is confident that he will do so successfully. “I have a lot of belief in myself,” Hunt said.  “I was happy with a lot of my kicks because they were a lot better than what they have been, but I still think I have some things I can improve on. “I found the winger on the full a couple of times and put a ball dead so there’s still some work to do. “The two try assists just came from practice. When I see the fullback in the line I like to put a little grubber through. “It’s just something I’ve been working on. For me it’s game awareness and knowing where the fullback is.”It will be a tactic that Hunt will look to use when the Broncos travel to play the unbeaten Storm in Melbourne in Round 3 of the NRL Telstra Premiership. Hunt is already looking ahead to that match, and he said he expects a grinding battle that is decided by the forwards in the middle of the park. “They’ve always produced quite a challenge for us down there,” he said.  “They had a pretty good win against the Warriors so we expect them to be strong. “It’s always a tough grinding game and they have some excellent players. “In saying that, I like playing in Melbourne. It’s a great place and their fans are always passionate.”last_img read more

The unanswered questions from the 20 LaLiga teams

first_imgBy José Antonio Espina.Real Sociedad: Willian José, Odegaard and ChampionsWould Willian José have obtained total forgiveness from the fans of Real?The Brazilian striker refused to play a game with Real to force his sale to Tottenham in January. The operation did not go ahead and finally stayed. He publicly asked for forgiveness, but since then he hasn’t raised his head. In Ipurua, in the only game behind closed doors before the league was suspended due to the coronavirus crisis, he finally scored again, and began to win the full forgiveness of the realistic supporters. He was on the right track, but it is unknown if he had succeeded.Would Real have managed to hold on to Champions League positions?The San Sebastian team came to a halt due to the COVID19 health alert in fourth place that gives access to the Champions League, something that had been around all season. But he had two demanding commitments against Osasuna and Alavés. Of course, he was going through a moment in a spectacular way when winning 9 of his last 11 games, a dynamic that is never easy to give continuity.Would Ødegaard have recovered the elf he had on the first lap?The Norwegian player on loan from Real Madrid, after being the revelation of the league in the first round, was going through a moment of less brilliance in his game because of some muscle discomfort that dragged. But he always left details of his enormous class. Undisputed starter for Imanol, he channeled the entire realistic game, and was carefully taken to recover his best version, as evidenced by the fact that he reserved it in the last game played so far in Spain, in Ipurua.PEPE ANDRES & nbsp; (DIARIO AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FOOTBALL 18/19PEPE ANDRES (DAILY AS) Would Bale make himself important again?That the Zidane-Bale relationship has been broken has been a reality since summer, when the coach publicly asked that he leave. But he stayed and the French decided to pull him. He started as a starter, but little by little he became irrelevant and did not have a minute in the games against Barcelona and Betis. The question is whether the Welshman, a man given to appear at important moments, would have done it again in the fight to raise a new White League.Would the white solidity return?Madrid cemented its best moment of this season from the defensive solidity, but the defeat against Real in the Cup destroyed everything. Including that match, Madrid have conceded 12 goals in seven games. Nothing to do with Madrid who accumulated four goals received in 13 days.By Manu de Juan.Seville: Champions, Banega, De Jong …Would Sevilla keep the Champions League streak going?The victories against Getafe and Osasuna and the draw at Wanda had once again packed Lopetegui.Would he recover the best Banega?After two games without playing and bad minutes before, the Argentine had returned to a good level against Atlético.Would forwards De Jong and En-Nesyri keep the streak going?In recent times and with the Dutch above all discussed, one and the other were scoring important goals for Sevilla.JAVIER GANDUL & nbsp; (DIARIO AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FOOTBALL 17/18JAVIER GANDUL (DAILY AS) By Javier Mata.Granada: Europe, the greats and FernándezWould Granada come to Europe with the streak that came?The team has salvation in its pocket and was going through a great moment. It is seven points from Europe, but in Granada you dream.Would Luis Enrique call Carlos Fernández?It has been one of the revelations of the season, he has eight goals between league and cup and was at his best moment of the course.Would Madrid win at the Cármenes?Granada made their field a fortress where Barcelona lost (2-0) and Atlético tied (1-1). Before the greats, the Nazaries have grown.By Aimara G. Gil.Athletic: Aduriz, Beñat and score …Would Aduriz have reached the Top-5 of Athletic scorers?Aritz has left his injury behind and almost all questions hang over his figure. He has 172 goals and is seven from the legendary José Iraragorri, the fifth goalscorer in the history of the rojiblanco club. In addition, he dreams of retiring with the Cup, another challenge.Could Beñat and San José have said goodbye in the field?Beñat and San José end the contract and have a very difficult time to renew. The second is counting something else, but the exbético has not played since February 9. It will be interesting to see if they count something before the curtain falls. And if Herrerín returns to act, since Unai Simón closes the door to him.Would Garitano have reached 53 points last year?Athletic currently has 37 points. 33 remain to be disputed. Last year Garitano worked the miracle until he touched the European classification. He lost it on the last day. He stayed at 53. The challenge is to reach that figure.By Alfonso Herranz.Osasuna: Chimy, Gallego and salvationChimy was key in the team. Since his injury, the team’s numbers have dropped. Would the equipment have been retrofitted in time?Osasuna was doing a remarkable season in his return to Primera and conviction with his game, with the high pressure that characterizes the game of those of Arrasate.Before the break, Osasuna had 34 points. Salvation seemed very close. Would it have come soon? Would they have had to suffer?They managed to make history, managing to add 31 consecutive games without losing in El Sadar, a streak that Athletic broke. To the suspension of the League they were very close to salvation, since they had added 34 points and everything indicates that they had been saved without major problems.Lato, Arnaiz and Gallego have barely had time to demonstrate anything. What would have been its performance?It is an unknown the performance that would have given the arrivals in the winter market, Lato, Arnaiz and Enric Gallego. None of the three has had enough time to demonstrate what they could have contributed.By Uxue M. de ZúñigaBetis: Rubi, Pedraza and Loren …Would Betis have maintained the winning inertia that began against Real Madrid?The victory against the Whites returned the state of joy just before the Seville derby.Would Rubi keep Loren in the ownership?The coach alternated with Borja and the Marbella player in the starting lineup, but Loren, after scoring for Valencia and playing well against the Whites, aspired and maintained himself.Would Pedraza be able to take ownership?The winger returned to play good minutes after injured games and aims to take Alex Moreno’s place on the winger.By José Antonio Espina.Levante: Roger, goals, style of play …Would Levante have won their first victory at Mestalla?Levante faced its 14th Valencia derby at Mestalla with the ambition of achieving its first victory in its 110-year history after nine defeats and four draws in previous clashes. Paco López, who debuted last year with defeat in his first derby, would have emerged as the coach with the most matches in the First Division with the Orriols team in the black and white feud, beating Juan Igancio Martínez.Would Roger have surpassed his best goal scoring in the First Division?The national top scorer, Roger Martí, tied with Lucas Pérez and Gerard Moreno, is two goals away from surpassing his best record in the First Division, the 13 goals of last season. With a double in the derby on the first lap, the ‘Gunman’ aimed at the derby to get it.Would the campaign have become the second international for Spain in granota history?José Campaña was in Luis Enrique’s prelist for the friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands. However, he was in a position where there is ‘overbooking’ of possibilities for the coach. Having entered the list, the Andalusian would be the second granota to wear La Roja after Ernesto Domínguez (1964).By Luis Sancho.Alavés: Garitano, Lucas and Pacheco …Would Lucas Pérez still be the best national scorer in the category?The Galician winger has 11 goals, is tied with Gerard and Roger. He forms a devilish couple with Joselu (20 goals between them) and tried to expand his account.Would Asier Garitano renew before the end of the season?The blue-and-white coach, on a tightrope during the first lap, was straightening the course and if he achieved mathematical permanence before the end of the season, the renewal could have been offered.Would Alavés sell Fernando Pacheco to Seville, the main bidder?The albiazul meta is one of the best in LaLiga and suitors arise every summer. It is a luxury for Alavés, a back bra. It seems inevitable that sooner or later a big one will come and take it away.By Alfonso Herrán.Valladolid: Ben Arfa, salvationWould he take a place in the eleven Ben Arfa?The Franco-Tunisian arrived a month and a half ago and has only played two games, 13 minutes each, for not being physically well. Now it takes 4 weeks with a special plan.Will Valladolid be saved with fewer problems than last year?In 2018-19 they had to wait for the penultimate day to achieve mathematical salvation. This year they are looser, but they still need three wins and a draw to reach 40 points.By Ignacio Bailator.Eibar: Bernabéu, system and Soares …Would Eibar have struck the bell with Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu?The meeting was very complicated for the Eibarreses, who, in addition, lowered their performance as visitors, but there was much hope to face this event, in which the meringues were more aware of the City.Would Mendilibar have aligned a 4-4-2 system, with 2 forwards, at the Bernabéu?Mendilibar is a brave coach, who has already employed a 4-4-2, with two forwards at Ipurua. But it was useless against Real Madrid who thrashed 0-4, so he could change his plans.Would Soares have triumphed at Ipurua?The Portuguese player has not been released with the gun shirt. It can be said that it was a failed signing. Cote is untouchable but there is no question whether this tiredness would have left him room.By Alfonso Herranz.Celtic: the scheme, Denis and AspasAspas scored in the last two games in Balaídos, was his streak going to allow him to position himself as the top Spanish scorer in LaLiga?Iago Aspas had recovered his best version, scoring in the last two games in Balaídos, and after resting by sanction in Getafe he was going to return to lead the sky-blue against Villarreal. Denis Suárez had options to reappear before the yellow submarine.Was Óscar going to keep this streak of undefeated games?The break cools the best moment of Celta this season. Óscar’s team has been unbeaten for five games in a row and has not conceded a goal in the last three.Was Denis Suárez going to force himself to play in two key games like duels with Villarreal and Valladolid?Denis Suárez had options to reappear before the yellow submarine.By Abraham Martínez.Mallorca: Kubo, Budimir and direct rivalsWould Mallorca have been saved?The latest results build confidence with 7 of the last 12 points added. The team based on results had gained in confidence and began to believe in the possibility of moving the situation forward.Would you have beaten direct rivals like Celta and Leganés at Son Moix?Reliability at home gave the team a lot of solvency at home. Probably yes. The trident Budimir-Kubo-Cucho had begun to decide in the opposite area and that together with the solvency at home made think of winning Celta and Leganés as direct rivals.Would Budimir have been the debutant top scorer?With 9 goals and in a fight with Sevilla player Ocampos with 10 he had possibilities as an area striker. Escorted by players like Kubo, Cucho, Dani Rodríguez or Lago Junior, the Croatian was a sure candidate for the best debut scorer.By Gabriel Forteza.Leganés: descent, Óscar and AssaléWould Leganés have achieved a key takeoff?After winning at Villarreal (first win away from home since May 2019), the squad wanted to face a key duel against Valladolid at home. A victory would have put the Blue and Whites on a comeback that is now unknown with the break.Would Oscar keep his recitals?The one from Los Navalmorales has become the burning nail of a Leganés who has him as an offensive reference and also a more unbalanced player. Against Villarreal he made a double that makes him the team’s top scorer with seven goals. The question remains whether he would have prolonged his streak.Would Assalé have won options?The Ivory Coast player played a few minutes against Villarreal and it was a revolution. And that only touched eleven balls and gave four passes. I do not care. Quick and vertical he dismounted the yellow defense and showed Aguirre that he can play as a starter. That of Valladolid would have been an excellent test for its offensive virtues.By Javier Martín.Espanyol: RDT, Abelardo and the descentWould Raúl de Tomás have equaled his six goals from the second round with Rayo before the break?It was reasonable to believe that yes, since although he remained unmarked in El Sadar, he did not do so against Atlético but his was half of Savic’s own goal. And in the previous four games he did accumulate as many goals.Would Abelardo’s team have won against Alavés their second win at home in all of LaLiga?On the one hand, it seems difficult to believe it because in the previous 13 games he only defeated Mallorca. On the other, he had been undefeated in Cornellà since December, who had been prowling the market in recent games. And this was not going to be less.Would Espanyol have reversed the path to relegation?There were few reasons for hope after the defeat against Osasuna, but Espanyol faced two games in a row to get on the last train of the stay, against Alavés and Getafe, for which the team had concentrated with a mini stay in Navata .By Iván Molero.NIKOLAY DOYCHINOV & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FBL-EUR-C3-LUDOGORETS-ESPANYOLNIKOLAY DOYCHINOV (AFP) The coronavirus has suddenly paralyzed football. A sudden stop that leaves millions of questions unanswered in the air. The tightest League in recent years had the lure of surprise. On the one hand, the ‘weak’ hand-to-hand between Barcelona (58) and Madrid (56) is the tightest in recent times. The push and pull between the two is heartbreaking if we stick to statistics. The current LaLiga leader has 58 out of 81 possible points. If Barça has left 23 points on the road, Madrid has done the same but with 25. Very far away is Atlético de Simeone in sixth place with 45 points and more focused on the Champions League.Surprising is also the main role of Getafe de Bordalás. The azulones are fifth with 46 points the same as Real Sociedad (in the Champions area). Without a doubt, both are the two revelation sets of the season. The people of Madrid triumph in Europe (after defeating Ajax) and the Basques are already in the final of the Copa del Rey against Athletic Club de Bilbao. The relegation zone has not changed as much as the leader: Mallorca (25), Leganés (23) and Espanyol (20) are on fire and who knows if they would have turned the situation around. AS correspondents collect the thousands of questions that remain in the air after the football break.Barcelona: Setién, Braithwaite, scarves …Would Setién establish a game scheme?The Cantabrian coach had to give up his idea of ​​3-5-2 at the first change. Then he tried the 4-3-3 which he has alternated with the 4-4-2. The game system at the time of the break was the latter with Vidal as a false striker.Braithwaite was the solution?© MIGUEL RUIZ & nbsp; (DIARIO AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>BARCELONA 19/20© MIGUEL RUIZ (DIARIO AS) Would Portu have regained prominence in the eleven instead of the reborn Januzaj?The Murcian player, the most expensive signing last summer, Vale had overtaken Januzaj on the right with his good numbers. But the Belgian had taken away his position with a last month with which he has been reborn. But Portu is a lot of Portu, he never gives up, and already in Ipurua he gave his eighth assist of the season starting from the bench. He had everything to regain his lost place in a battle for the right wing that was presumed precious in the Royal.Would Alexander Isak have continued to dazzle Europe?The Swedish striker had slowed somewhat in recent games, but had continued to have chances. Isak dazzled European football in January and February with spectacular numbers, with 14 goals between the league and the Cup; And it had everything to keep drawing the attention of all European football.By Roberto Ramajo.Getafe: Ángel, Bordalás and the physicist …Would Ángel meet the goal again?JAVIER GANDUL & nbsp; (DIARIO AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FOOTBALL 19/20JAVIER GANDUL (DAILY AS) Since his transfer to Barca was frustrated, he had lost prominence in the team. His last goal was precisely at the Camp Nou and he had 5 games without seeing a goal. Deyverson had relegated him to being the fourth striker despite being the top scorer.Would you achieve the physique to make history in 2 competitions?Bordalás had greatly reduced his confidence group and they were hardly going to be able to keep up. Especially in the center of the field with injured ztimor and Etebo not registered in Europe. Too much for Arambarri and MaksimovicWill Bordalás continue at the end of the course?It is a question that has not disappeared, but the circumstances have changed with the break. Suitors will not be missing, but it is a mystery with all the benches occupied and without end. Before the break, everyone was betting because it would be his last season at the Coliseum. You have a contract.By José Antonio de la Rosa.Atlético: Champions, Costa and OblakOscar J. Barroso / AFP7 / Europe & nbsp; (Oscar J. Barroso / AFP7 / Europe) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>News: Coronavirus – Wanda Metropolitano StadiumOscar J. Barroso / AFP7 / Europe (Oscar J. Barroso / AFP7 / Europe)center_img By Conrado Valle.Villarreal: Álcacer, Calleja and the fansWould Calleja be able to convince the stands that he is the coach who can lead Villarreal again among the best?The season is not being bad and even more if we love the previous campaign. Of course, it was expected that he would be a little closer to Europe and it has always been difficult for him to be in that area. Chukwueze would return to the level of last season and return to the starting team. Or would he still not fully enter the team?It is a team that scores goals, but they also score many goals. The previous campaign had a great level, but it seems to be far from those records.Would Calleja still keep Gerard Moreno in the band, or would he bet on a couple up with Paco Alcácer?The yellows will see a pair of attack formed by Gerard and Alcácer, the one that the coach does not bet on now. Calleja likes to have Gerard in the band and only one reference above, although he already tried two forwards. The option of both ends would be a bet that almost all fans would approve of and want to see.SALVADOR SAS & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FOOTBALL 18/19SALVADOR SAS (DAILY AS) The Danish striker came to reinforce the attack and only played as a starter against Real Sociedad. It provides unchecking space and punch, but it did not seem the best response to the lack of goal from the leader.Would the scarves last?The suspension of the championship has come to Bartomeu as a truce in the Camp Nou’s constant criticism of his management. In the last three games, he had lived three scarves.By Santi Giménez.Real Madrid: leadership, Benzema and BaleWas Madrid going to be able to regain the lead?After the victory in the Clásico, the trigger came in Seville and Barça returned to the top. Madrid signed against Betis one of their worst games of the season and the heavyweights were very self-critical. The question is whether they would have reversed the situation. The calendar was on the white side: he played one more game at home than the Catalans (six against five) and those of Setién still had to face Seville, Athletic and Atlético de Madrid.Was Benzema going to find the path of the goal again?He scored in Seville thanks to the penalty awarded to him by Ramos, the first pitcher in the squad. But Benzema’s performance in recent months was disappointing: two goals in the last eleven days. Very little for the ‘nine’ of Madrid, who came in addition to signing 12 goals in the first 16 LaLiga games. If Zidane’s men were going to fight for the title, it had to be yes or yes with the help of the best Benzema.MIGUEL MORENATTI & nbsp; (Diario AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FOOTBALL 19/20MIGUEL MORENATTI (Diario AS) Would Diakhaby have regained confidence after his match against Atalanta?The French central defender ended up crying in the Champions League match and pointed out by the critics. But Diakhaby has always shown his commitment to Valencia and he is not one of those kids who drop his arms.Would Ferran Torres have premiered in the Spanish National Team?Ferran was in Luis Enrique’s prelist for the friendly against Germany and everything indicated that Foios’ could be one of the novelties. Of course there is little doubt that Ferran is the “plane” that the coach talked about during a video of how his technical staff works, which was issued in January by the RFEF. Would Atlético have entered the Champions League?At the time of this break, and in the absence of 11 games, the team is sixth, so it would not qualify for the next Champions. He had never been out of the top four with Simeone at the end of the first lap.Would Diego Costa have reconciled with himself?The striker is not achieving good numbers at this stage in Atlético and, in addition, a cervical hernia stopped him short. It is already recovered, although not yet 100%, and it is still expected to see that great version of yours.Would Oblak have won his fifth Zamora?The Slovenian seeks his fifth trophy for the goalkeeper with the fewest goals. The record is in five (Ramallets and Valdés), but nobody has won them in a row. The Slovenian, who has conceded 21 goals in 27 games (0.78), has to go back to Courtois, 16 in 24 (0.67).By Jesús Colino.Valencia: Celades, Ferran and DiakhabyWould Celades have cut the bleeding of goals that fits his Valencia?Valencia have conceded 27 goals in the last 15 games and already have 11 league games to go (and when they are going to play 12 fewer games between all competitions) the same goals as in all of last year. The goals conceded, along with injuries, is a bad thing for Valencia and Celades has not yet been able to put a brake on it.JOSE JORDAN & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FBL-EUR-C1-VALENCIA-LILLEJOSE JORDAN (AFP)last_img read more

Is Ebola a Curse From God or A Natural Disaster? (Part Five): Lessons to…

first_imgIn this fifth and concluding article of the series centered on the question of whether Ebola is a curse or a natural or man-made virus a particular attention is paid to the possible lessons we all as individuals, families, communities, religious institutions and nations can learn from the Ebola epidemic. What lessons can we learn from the Ebola disaster to make us better persons and a better nation? In what ways is the Ebola outbreak and the serious challenge it is posing to our existence an opportunity to change our attitudes and whole way of life for the better? Let us explore a bit below. The fourth article on human responsibility in dealing with the Ebola menace observed the following main points:Some believers wrongly think that human responsibility and divine support are incompatible. No, they are mistaken. The premise of this fourth article is that divine help and human efforts go hand in hand. We should not choose between the two. We make judicious use of both. We can always pray hard and equally work hard.The biggest challenge and gap in this fight against Ebola is to break the chain of transmission. We seem to be losing the fight as the rate of infection is increasing rapidly. To break the chain in transmission requires the involvement of everyone—especially individuals and communities. The outsiders can help with the building of more Ebola treatment centers, movement of equipment and medicines, lots of experts and preventive materials but the behavior change that is required has to be taught and effected by communities.Martin Luther King, Jr. once noted that to depend on our works and our works alone without any reference to God is atheism. Conversely, to sit and do nothing and expect God to do everything for us is not faith but presumption. Christianity is both trust in God and hard work. St. Augustine of Hippo put it like this: “Without God we cannot. Without us God will not”. In other words apart from God we can nothing. But though God can do without us, yet he has chosen to work with and through us mortals. What lessons then can we learn from the Ebola crisis to make us better?Joshua David Stone and Gloria Excelsias aver that every crisis is an opportunity: “Any crisis is an opportunity to change direction in your life”. They reveal that the word crisis is of Greek origin and it means “a turning point in a disease.” Their conclusion is: “So a crisis is truly an opportunity for a turning point in our lives”. Martin Luther King, Jr. speaks of turning our liabilities into assets. He uses the perennial example of Helen Keller who lived in the late 1880’s and early 1900’s. Made blind and deaf by a debilitating disease at the age of nine, she rose above the challenges in those days of being blind and deaf to acquiring a university degree and becoming an author, a lecturer, and an activist for the disabled. She could have mourned and blamed other people for her condition. No, rather she worked extra hard and excelled above many normal persons! Some experts in how to turn problems into opportunities speak about “turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones” in going higher rather than lower.The question for those who are now experiencing the havoc of this deadly disease is “Will Ebola leave us the same unpatriotic, self-centered, polarized, and envious people or will it leave us a better united people”?I suggest a few cardinal lessons. Ebola is forcing us as nations to revisit our health systems and pay more attention to them by putting more money in them and managing them better for our own survival and means of growth and development. Ebola is teaching us about how to better care for our bodies and environments. Many of us were taught early on in life to wash our hands as often as possible and to keep our surroundings clean as a means of preventing a lot of diseases but we have been careless about putting these basic lessons into practice. Ebola is calling us back to those basics.Above all, Ebola is challenging us to dare to do things differently to what we are used to. If we who are naturally a touching (countless handshakes) and hugging people can learn to restrain from a natural habit then we can certainly change our old bad attitudes and try more challenging ways of thinking and doing things differently with the potential of making us better. Let Ebola help us change our attitudes and ways for the better.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Alberta government concerned about mercury levels, risk of flood from Site C

first_imgThe Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development ministry won’t send anyone to environmental review hearings in Fort St. John, but it did file a written submission.It says the two existing dams on the Peace River in B.C. have already significantly altered the flow of the river into the neighbouring province.This has both positive and negative effects, but Alberta is concerned Site C will exacerbate the negative. In particular, Alberta is worried about expected spikes in mercury levels during construction of the dam and fluctuations in water flow.It is also concerned about fish mortality, flooding and the effects of water temperature changes and is asking B.C. Hydro for further study of several issues and guarantees that information will be shared if the project advances.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Hopeless gridlock the law in L.A.

first_img This is the extent of my research to date. On a personal note, the author wishes to apologize for the delayed publication of this article (originally scheduled for fall 2004). Unfortunately The Law of Collision Encouragement proved to be prescient. The author has beautifully recovered from his wounds and has secured the services of a top-notch personal injury lawyer. So, you see, sometimes The Laws of Motion can work, albeit slowly, to one’s advantage. Happy holidays and good luck! Frank Coffey’s latest book, a parody co-authored with Thomas Dolt, Ph.D., is The Complete Idoit’s Guide for Dumies. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals The Law of Lines: Your Ralphs/Albertsons/Trader Joe’s/Ross Dress for Less, Home Depot or Big Lots cash-out line will always proceed more slowly than any of the surrounding lines – which you aren’t in. Should you decide to change lines, your new line will, naturally, come to an abrupt halt. The Law of Inverse Haste: In the unlikely event that you find yourself walking (commonly, walking occurs on sidewalks after exiting an automobile or in malls), the pedestrians in front of you will want to walk slower. Anyone ahead of him or her will go slower still. Conversely, anyone behind you will want to go faster, and the people behind them – well, you get the idea. The Law of Perverse Probability: The farther you have to travel to look for somebody or something, the less likely it is that he, she or it will be there. Conversely, it’s a sure bet, he, she or it will be there, if you decide to look someplace else first. The Law of Tardy Departures: No matter how early you depart for your business meeting, lunch date or commute, you will be late. A corollary here, The Law of Disappointments, states that your chronic belatedness will cause lost financial opportunities, impaired friendships and employment issues. The Freeway Law: Upon entering a freeway, traffic will stop. This tendency is absolute and does not vary with time of day, day of week or particular freeway. A corollary here, The Law of Futile Action, posits that should you ingeniously manage to exit a freeway, you will promptly join hordes of your fellow Angelenos idling on impenetrable surface streets. The holiday season is upon us, and for anyone living in Los Angeles, this means two things: gridlock, human and vehicular. In an attempt to provide solace (there are no remedies) to my fellow sufferers, I offer The Laws of Motion in Los Angeles. These natural laws, describing a manifestly unintelligent design, will probably not help you get anywhere faster or cause the lines you are moldering in to move any quicker. But they will help you understand why you can’t get anywhere and why your line isn’t moving, which is the next best thing. The Law of Declining Spaces: The moment you enter a parking facility, large or small, the percentage of empty spots will plummet by 50 percent and continue to diminish at a minimum rate of 20 percent per minute – meaning if upon entering the formal parking area you aren’t ensconced within, say, 90 seconds, you might as well go home. The Traffic Law: Persons incapable of correctly operating a motor vehicle will do so to your immediate front. A closely related corollary here, The Law of Futile Anger, states that horn-blaring, profane imprecations and/or aggressive gesticulations will do little to improve the situation, and may even cause real-time events to further deteriorate. last_img read more
