timberland pro uk ‘Dignity’ Statue A Gift To The People Of South Dakota

The next time you drive on Interstate 90 by Chamberlain, look toward the rest stop and you’ll see South Dakota’s newest landmark, a 50 foot statue named “Dignity.”

“This is a work that will be a gift to all the people of South Dakota,” Black Hills artist Dale Lamphere said.

“I had three different Lakota models, different ages, 14, 29 and 55 and I borrowed features from each of them and tried to get a look that was truly native,” Lamphere said.

Another authentic native touch is the star quilt behind Dignity.

“The star quilt is represented in this piece is very meaningful in the Lakota and Dakota cultures. When a baby is born, they’re wrapped in a star quilt because they came down from the stars so to speak. That’s what people will see as the drive by on Interstate 90, just as they drop into the Missouri River basin, they’ll see the star quilt right on the edge of the horizon,” Lamphere said.

There’s LED lighting in the statue, so you’ll want to view it at night as well. The people viewing it on Thursday took a lot of pictures to prove they were there when Dignity went up.

Nine people were killed on June 17 when gunman Dylann Roof opened fire at a weekly Bible study session at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church.

Investigators discovered Roof was the owner of a radical right wing website, on which he posted photos of himself proudly waving the Confederate flag as a symbol of his fealty to white supremacy. officials to push for the complete removal of the Confederate flag, which still flies outside a number of government buildings in America’s Southern states, and although many politicians have supported the cause, Jones, a former Democratic congressman for Georgia, is speaking out in favour of keeping the flag.

He told presenter Ashleigh Banfield, “Through all of that (in the aftermath of the Civil War), through all of those resentments, through all of that segregation, and white supremacy and all that nonsense, we’ve come through that. We’re not here to offend anybody.”

However, Banfield took issue with his comments and fired back,

“White supremacy is not nonsense. It just, not even a week ago, led to the mortal combat murders of nine innocent churchgoers”, prompting Jones to respond, “Wait a minute. It’s not a southern sin. White supremacy is a sin. Racism is a sickness that goes on all over the world. This man (Roof) doesn’t represent us. no one thinks it was not a terrible, horrible thing. Y’all (sic) can’t define us by the act of a demented hater. It doesn’t connect.”

Jones, who marched in the civil rights movement, also claimed the use of the flag on The Dukes of Hazzard’s iconic 1969 Dodge Charger, nicknamed the General Lee, was never meant to offend and was always used in a “positive context”.

As such, Jones, who owns two Cooter’s Place stores in Virginia and Tennessee, is refusing to bow to pressure to stop selling items featuring the flag in his shops.

Despite Jones’ defence of the Confederate imagery in The Dukes of Hazzard, studio bosses at Warner Bros. announced they would no longer licence toy cars featuring the General Lee with the flag on its roof.

timberland boots for babies ‘Extreme’ rent control could be coming to California

black leather timberland boots ‘Extreme’ rent control could be coming to California

A costly and potentially bruising campaign is taking shape over rent control in California, with deep pocketed Los Angeles activist Michael Weinstein bankrolling a proposed November ballot initiative to repeal a state law that sets tight limits on the type of housing covered under local rent control laws.”Nobody’s fighting for the tenant,” said Weinstein, president of AIDS Healthcare Foundation, who partly funded the Proposition 61, the 2016 fight over prescription drug costs that became the most expensive initiative that year, with total spending at roughly $130 million.As California confronts a historic housing crisis, low and middle income renters are being pushed out, even in cities with some form of rent control.The disruption is fueling the push by Weinstein and other tenants rights’ activists to overturn a state law that prevents cities and counties from adopting strong rent control laws.Read more: California stands by its right to set emission standardsProponents say they have been met with enthusiasm this year while gathering signatures for a proposed November ballot initiative that would repeal the 1995 Costa Hawkins Rental Housing Act, which says rent control cannot apply to large amounts of housing, including all housing built after 1995, single family homes, condos and duplexes. If the proposed initiative is successful, efforts by local communities to strengthen existing rent control ordinances and pass new laws could drastically alter the housing market across California.”People are excited,” said Anya Svanoe, a spokeswoman for the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment,also behind the campaign. “This is the easiest signature gathering we’ve ever done. It’s telling . People are hungry for rent control and . to see solutions to the housing crisis that can provide immediate relief to themselves and their neighbors.”Critics, including the California Apartment Association, believe repeal would lead to “extreme versions” of rent control throughout the state, bringing new housing construction to a standstill. His argument that rent control deters new construction because it limits profit and financing options is backed by other powerful real estate interests and construction trades groups in Sacramento, including the California Chamber of Commerce and the California Building Industry Association.Supporters, on the street for just two weeks, have collected 100,000 signatures. They need 365,880 valid signatures by June to qualify for the November ballot. If the current law is repealed, any city or county in California could require rent control on any type of housing it chooses.The campaign, with real estate interests on one side and tenants’ rights activists on the other, could become the most expensive initiative this November.”Money wise, this could be the grand poobah of them all because of what’s at stake,” said Steve Maviglio, a Sacramento based Democratic political consultant. “On one side you have a multimillionaire fighting for rent control, and the (California) Apartment Association on the other . both sides have deep pockets, so it could be a very expensive battle. The question is whether it will overshadow other issues on the ballot designed to help housing.”More housing needed in stateHousing is a top concern among the state’s electorate. More than half of California voters say the state’s housing affordability crisis is so bad that they’ve considered moving, and 60 percent of likely voters support rent control, according to astatewide poll last fall. Both sides of the rent control battle have also poured money into ballot box fights in recent years.There is widespread agreement, among Democrats and Republicans and between pro growth activists and those concerned about tenant displacement, that California must build more housing to address its affordability problems. The stateneeds about 200,000 housing units per yearto keep pace with rising demand, though it is building an average of roughly 80,000 units per year.Rents in California, the most expensive in the nation, have gone up more than 40 percent in major metropolitan areas since 2015, according to a January housing analysis by the Public Policy Institute of California. Median rents for all types of rental housing range from $1,595 in Sacramento, to $4,395 in San Francisco, to $2,933 in Los Angeles, according to the real estate listing service Zillow.Nearly half of Californians 47 percent say the state’s high housing costs are a financial strain on themselves and their families, according to the Public Policy Institute analysis. That figure is higher among renters, with 61 percent saying they are financially burdened.Read more: 4 California lawmakers accused of misconduct; none punishedBackers of the Costa Hawkins repeal say building the housing California needs will take decades, and tenants facing big rent increases need help now.”There’s no building our way out of this crisis,” said Damien Goodmon, director of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s “Housing is a Human Right” campaign. “We have no illusion . that this will be costly and ugly.”The state Chamber of Commerce labeled a bill that also sought to repeal Costa Hawkins a “job killer.”It died earlier this year in the Assembly, setting up the ballot box fight.”I expect it to qualify,” said Allan Zaremberg, the Chamber’s president and CEO. “We’re concerned about increases in the cost of housing and being able to keep people in California. The consequences of a strong economy and an inability to keep up with the demand for housing is a problem we need to solve, but we believe that rent control diminishes investment in housing opportunities.”It costs more money to build (in California),” Zaremberg said. “If you can’t recover those costs, you’re less likely to put your money into a development.”Jeff Pemstein, a board member for the state Building Industry Association, acknowledged that economically thriving cities like San Francisco, which has rent control, have experienced a building boom, but he argued developers in other markets, like Sacramento, cannot absorb the high costs of construction, labor and permitting on top of rent control.”People will pay astronomical prices to live in niche markets like San Francisco. They are super desirable so you can afford to put up with a lot of inconvenience, but the vast majority of California cannot afford to do that,” said Pemstein, also division president for Towne Development of Sacramento, which finances all types of development including rental housing and single family homes.He said he’s financing the proposed initiative because he has witnessed firsthand what he perceives as consequences of the state’s housing problems.”We’re seeing a growing homelessness crisis, our employees have to travel farther and farther to work and people are being displaced by the thousands,” Weinstein said. “Everything the Legislature is doing is geared toward creating luxury housing, not preserving the housing stock for people who are low and moderate income.”

timberland promo code ‘Fantastic Beasts’ is still not portraying it

tall timberland boots ‘Fantastic Beasts’ is still not portraying it

Rowling’s 2007 reveal that she had always imagined Dumbledore as gay, and they may also remember the lack of explicit, textual basis for the claim.

This announcement comes less than two months after the discussion around the choice not to replace Johnny Depp in the wake of Amber Heard’s abuse allegations against him. December 2017 saw Warner Bros., Heard and Rowling all address Depp’s casting in the film, as Depp is set to play antagonist Gellert Grindelwald.

Each statement elicited passionate responses, with Warner Bros. saying, “This matter has been jointly addressed by both parties, in a statement in which they said ‘there was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.'” Both Yates and Rowling vocalized their support of Depp in the role, as well. Meanwhile, Heard responded by accusations made by Heard.

Two more things of note regarding Depp’s presence in the movie. First, there is no shortage of options to replace him, not to mention the fact that (spoiler) Colin Farrell’s character wound up being Grindelwald in disguise they could have simply cast Farrell as Grindelwald. Second, more than three months after Heard’s divorce from Depp, the Girlgaze Project posted a video of Heard talking about being a victim of abuse and the importance of speaking up for International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Now here we are at the dawn of 2018, finding that the franchise has seemingly endless bad decisions up its sleeve. And here we are, debating LGBTQ+ representation in “Harry Potter” again.

I am a firm believer in the act of simply declaring a character gay. I do it all the time. Within the “Harry Potter” universe, it’s my unwavering belief that Remus and Sirius dated during the First Wizarding War.

Yet in 2007, all Rowling did was point to a character and said, “That one’s gay.” Saying Dumbledore is gay is great! It’s technically representation! But why not explicitly include it in the novels? Here’s how it could have gone:

I know, in my heart of hearts, what Gellert Grindelwald was? I think I did, but I closed my eyes, because I fell in love with him. Gay love, that is. I cannot stress this enough, Harry I was a young, arrogant, raging homosexual.”

It is not enough to say that an LGBTQ+ character’s sexual orientation does not need to be addressed or mentioned because “gay people just look like people.” That shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how LGBTQ+ people interact with their identity. Dumbledore’s story would not realistically be the same regardless if he was straight or gay. That’s not how it works in a heteronormative, cissexist world.

Dumbledore clearly hated himself for falling for Grindelwald’s charms, but because his sexuality isn’t explicitly addressed, we lose the opportunity to explore how much of this hate stems from the fact that he was specifically blinded by his love for a man. Did Dumbledore have to live with that particularly insidious form of internalized homophobia? We don’t know, because his sexuality has never been addressed in the context of his character.

When Rowling first confirmed Dumbledore was gay, she mentioned it when talking about vetoing a line in the script for “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.” The line had Dumbledore tell Harry about a childhood crush he’d had on a girl. The script had room for a line about Dumbledore attraction as long as that attraction was straight. The line wasn’t changed to “boy”; it was done away with entirely once Rowling revealed Dumbledore was gay.

Of course, the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise may very well address Dumbledore’s sexuality in the later films but why put it off? Such a decision echoes Rian Johnson’s explanation for the lack of LGBTQ+ characters in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” As Johnson said, “Sexuality, in general, is not something that front of mind in any of these movies.”

The approach to LGBTQ+ representation in many mainstream, particularly fan driven, things seems to be “it’ll happen when it feels natural.” It seems many creators have difficulty imagining LGBTQ+ characters existing naturally.

You can explicitly have LGBTQ+ characters without solely dedicating your story to what it’s like to be LGBTQ+. It is possible.

The inclusion of LGBTQ+ characters is never going to feel natural as long as characters are treated as straight until proven otherwise. The same holds for representation in terms of gender and race in adaptations of books for the screen. There’s a reason Ava DuVernay’s coming adaptation of “A Wrinkle in Time” is incredibly important the characters are not all cast as white, challenging the tendency to make whiteness the literary default.

It is 2018 and the new on screen “Wizarding World” franchise is led by three white men, one of whom was accused of abuse (Johnny Depp) and one who will be playing a gay character whose gayness won’t be explicitly referenced (Jude Law). And while that may not be surprising, it’s still disappointing. After 11 years of barely subtextual LGBTQ+ representation, “Harry Potter” fans deserve better.

timberland for sale Family of mentally ill man killed in struggle with Whittier police files

WHITTIER >> The family of a 27 year old mentally ill Whittier man who died earlier this year after a struggle with Whittier police filed a $15 million claim against the city Wednesday.

Family members blamed Whittier police officers for the death of their son, Jonathan Salcido, at a news conference in front of the police station Wednesday.

killed him in front of me, Jazmin Salcido said. was a human being with hopes and dreams. He did not deserve this. I am so mad. There are no words for what I feel. He was supposed to have gone to a psychiatric hospital.

She ran after him but when she found him at the 900 block of Ocean View Avenue, she saw him trying to climb a fence.

Police officers were already there, Jazmin Salcido said. They pulled her son down, then pinned him to the ground with several officers on top. That why Jonathan Salcido was handcuffed, she said.

thought, God. What are they doing? she said.

Photos she shot show an officer on top of him and two others just above. A Los Angeles County sheriff deputy said at the time that officers used holds on Jonathan Salcido, who was then taken to PIH Health Hospital in Whittier where he died.

Daniel Stormer, the Salcidos attorney, said the family was told at the hospital the cause of death was asphyxia.
