An independent parent group recently relaunched at Samohi is already having an immediate impact on the high school’s student body.During Samohi’s Class of 2019 graduation, multicolored sarapes — a shawl worn over the shoulders — visibly popped amongst a sea of Samohi Vikings blue and gold.The colorful shawls were representative of Padres, Estudiantes y Maestros Asociación (PEMA), an independent group within the district which seeks to empower Latino students with a family-like touch, provided to PEMA students at the first Latino PEMA graduation celebration held Friday, June 7 held at the Samohi Cafeteria.“We did everything from scratch,” Rebecca Villegas, president of PEMA said. “I think it came out great. Next year, we hope it’s even bigger.”The celebration saw students receive $2,100 in scholarships and give speeches to their friends and families, a packed event with an attendance of over 250.“It was a full house,” SMMUSD board member Ralph Mechur said. Mechur, who opined at a September 2018 board meeting that he thought PEMA seemed dedicated to working with the community, was wowed by PEMAs immediate effect.“It was great to be at an event celebrating the success of our students,” he said. “It was a wonderful way to honor their work, their culture and their bright futures. It’s important for us to recognize the backgrounds that all the students come from, to honor them and to make sure who they are is looked at as part of their personal strength.”PEMA now has roughly 100 members and will grow to other districts including Culver City and Venice. However, their beginnings were far more humble.“The first week or so, we only had two students,” Dr. Berenice Onofre, PEMA founder said. “We were afraid we wouldn’t even get to six. I think by word of mouth the kids got there.”Word of mouth was aided by Dr. Mireles-Toumayan, a Spanish teacher at Samohi. Mireles-Toumayan was already a champion for Latino students in the school as an advisor for the Latinos Unidas club, spending time after class and after school aiding her students in their graduation plans.In PEMA, she found a partner with similar goals.“We wanted a voice for Latinos in the district,” Mireles-Toumayan said. “PEMA welcomed all, regardless of background. I told my students about them and the numbers grew fast. My club was excited to work with them and join them.”One Samohi Class of 2019 graduate who benefitted from PEMA is Cristian Cruz.Cruz is Cal State Northridge bound, currently undeclared but hoping to soon change assign health science as his major. A son of Latino immigrants, Cruz said he initially joined PEMA to stay close to his roots. He says PEMA helped him to improved himself, his grades and his life.“They influenced me to strive for better things,” Cruz said. “They made sure I didn’t just go for the bare minimum, always asking me to ask more of myself.”After celebrating with PEMA at their first graduation celebration, Samohi’s schoolwide celebration ensued. Cruz, along with other PEMA members wore their shawls with pride.“For me, I wore it because I was proud of my culture,” Cruz said. “It was a matter of representing.”[email protected] :Cristian CruzDr. Berenice OnofreDr. Mireles-ToumayanEstudiantes y Maestros AsociaciónPEMAralph mechurRebecca VillegasSamohiSamohi’s Class of 2019smmusdshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentDelivery service powers new offerings from popular fusion restaurantWhat’s the buzz about sound healing?

NRG Home Solar to trade incentives with AirbnbThe two companies have teamed up to reward each other’s members, with NRG offering discounts on PV system leases and Airbnb offering travel credits for hosts with solar arrays. November 30, 2015 Christian Roselund Legal Markets Markets & Policy Share In an effort to grow their market shares, a popular strategy of leading U.S. residential solar companies has been to reach out to partners in other industries that interact with homeowners.Anyone who has been to a Home Depot home improvement store in the past few years has probably encountered a SolarCity sales representative, and the company partnered with Best Buy last year.In this light, a reciprocal deal announced today between NRG Home and Airbnb makes a lot of sense. NRG Home Solar is offering Airbnb hosts a discount on solar leases which ranges from US$100-$700, and Airbnb is offering a $100 “travel credit” to PV system owners who become hosts through its platform.This applies to new and existing Airbnb hosts, so a new host who also begins a solar lease can get both the discount and the travel credit. The program will begin on December 1 in California and New York, and NRG says that it will expand the offering to other states in coming months. In going for Airbnb, NRG was clearly thinking big. Airbnb claims more than 2 million listings in more than 34,000 cities and 190 nations although it is unlikely that solar leasing is legal in many of these nations. In June the company participated in a $1.5 billion funding round to put its valuation at $25.5 billion.NRG Home may need the help, as it is operating in a highly competitive environment and now has limited financial backing. Under pressure from investors, in September NRG announced that it was folding Home Solar with all its other renewable energy businesses except NRG Yield into a new company, which will receive support exclusively through a US$125 million revolving fund. NRG will launch its GreenCo at the beginning of 2016.This content is protected by copyright and may not be reused.

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC – Cricket West Indies (CWI) presidential candidate Ricky Skerritt and running mate, Dr Kishore Shallow, yesterday received major endorsements from legends Clive Lloyd and Sir Andy Roberts, in another major boost to their chances of toppling the Dave Cameron ticket at Sunday’s elections in Jamaica. This follows last Sunday’s endorsement of the pair by another cricketing great, Sir Vivian Richards, the highly regarded legendary former captain and master batsman.Charging that West Indies cricket had undergone a “decimation” during the Cameron administration, Lloyd contended that West Indies cricket was in need of a “new direction” and that Skerritt possessed all the qualities to take the game in the Caribbean forward.“With Mr Skerritt’s experience, my personal knowledge of him and his commitment and dedication to West Indies Cricket over the years, I fully endorse his candidacy and firmly believe that with the support of his board, his vision for taking West Indies Cricket forward will bear fruit,” said Lloyd, also a former West Indies team manager. “The late former President and West Indies opening batsman, Alan Rae, whom I admired greatly was a formidable President who worked tirelessly using his own funds to keep West Indies Cricket at the top of World Cricket.“West Indies Cricket was his first priority. He was a very well respected West Indian/Jamaican whom I had the greatest honour and pleasure to work with. His commitment and dedication to West Indies cricket was unquestionable and I believe that Mr Skerritt will emulate those qualities.”A two-time World Cup-winning skipper and former chairman of selectors, Lloyd pointed to Skerritt’s Cricket First Plan, which he said was “built on inclusiveness, integrity, and development”. In addition, Skerritt and Shallow have proposed term limits on the office of the president, a move which Lloyd also threw his support behind.“We need a fixed term period of office for the presidency of three or four years. In America it does not matter how effective or successful you are, you can only serves two terms,” he said.“By having a rotation policy it inspires other individuals whom are suitably qualified to prepare themselves over a period of time and a chance to aspire to attain such high office also the opportunity to project fresh ideas. “West Indies Cricket needs a new direction. We have seen the decimation of West Indies Cricket over a long period of time especially under this administration much to the humiliation of the Caribbean Diaspora.”The outspoken Sir Andy, meanwhile, said Skerritt and Shallow had convinced him they would be unifying figures, and would bring the change so badly required to halt the decline in West Indies cricket.“Over the last 25 years, West Indies cricket has been steadily declining. In the last [five to 10] years the administration has declined rapidly – so much confusions with players, past and present and West Indian-born coaches,” said Sir Andy, a part of Lloyd’s fearsome pace battery of the 1970s and 80s. “We need a change at the top, so that is why I’m endorsing Ricky Skerritt and Kishore Shallow as President and Vice-President of our cricket.“They have assured me that they will work with all relevant stakeholders in the region to make sure they get the best out of the region, so that our cricket can move forward and back to a position of respectability. At the moment it is not there.”The latest endorsements adds to the groundswell of support for Skerritt and Shallow, who have already gotten the thumbs-up from St Vincent and the Grenadines Prime Minister, Dr Ralph Gonsalves.However, the pair will need to secure at least seven of the 12 votes up for grabs from the six territorial boards, in order to prevent Cameron and vice-president, Emmanuel Nanthan, from securing a fourth straight term. Already, Barbados, Guyana and Windward Islands have signalled their support for the incumbents, while Trinidad and Tobago and Leeward Islands have backed the challengers.The Jamaica Cricket Association have said they will hear from both parties before making a decision on who to support.
Joe Hart, of Manchester City, and Luke Shaw, of Manchester United, have also worked with the psychiatrist this season. JA Sanchez 12/09/2015 CEST “Ronaldo’s acolytes in the dressing room, such as the youngster Isco, also made life tough for Bale. That is when he turned to Edwards.” “The world player of the year turned on Bale when it became clear that the Wales flyer had failed to pick up the Spanish language to his own, exacting standards. Upd. at 12:05 “On the pitch Bale’s performances, including his stunning goal against Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final and his strike in the Champions League final against Atletico Madrid in 2014, were threatening Ronaldo’s standing at the club. Neil Ashton wrote: “Perhaps that is why Bale was such a success again in his second season at the Bernabeu, learning to deal with the negative dressing room environment that had been created by Cristiano Ronaldo. The hostile environment Cristiano Ronaldo created at Real Madrid forced Gareth Bale to go and see a psychiatrist, according to the Daily Mail. The Welshman’s good start to the season has come thanks to Jamie Edwards, a former basketball player who helps sports stars prepare mentally.
@jordigil 20/06/2018 ESP Iran were celebrating the goal in the corner as it was refused by VAR. Andrés Cunha (Uruguay). Tarjetas amarillas: Amiri (78′), Ebrahimi (92′) Spain rode their luck at times, though, and Iran were denied what would have been a famous equaliser when Saeid Ezatolahi fired home. That at last forced Iran to attack and they forced Spain into some uncomfortable situations. Spain had dominated the first half but struggled to create chances against an Iran side who lined up with a back six. IRA Irán Even after the disallowed goal, Mehdi Taremi had a great chances to draw his country level, missing the target with a header from six yards.

And second later they received the bad news as it was determined that Ezatolahi had been offside in the build up to the goal. Kazán Arena, 42.718 espectadores The breakthrough arrived after the break when Diego Costa’s shot ricocheted back of the Atletico Madrid striker to give Spain a fortnight lead.
