The Beginnings of Economic Transition in Appalachia

first_imgThe Beginnings of Economic Transition in Appalachia FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Public Radio International:Solar Holler is partnering with a non-profit called the Coalfield Development Corporation. They own the building. Beyond solar jobs, Coalfield Development is teaching former coal workers skills like woodworking and farming.Apprentices with Coalfield Development work 33 hours, spend six hours a week at a community college, and three hours engaged in “life-skills mentorship.” Nearly 90 people have entered the program. The name — Coalfield Development — is a nod to the region’s past and future.“Coal is more than just an employment base here in Appalachia, it’s central to our identity. And that lets you know a sense of our pain the last few years,” says Brandon Dennison, Coalfield Development’s CEO. “No one industry can replace coal, nor should it. We need to diversify and have lots of different business opportunities.”Half of Coalfield Development’s funding, nearly $2 million, comes from a federal program called the Appalachian Regional Commission. It was created by an act of Congress in 1965, after urging by President John F. Kennedy and then President Lyndon Johnson, to combat the region’s high levels of poverty.The Trump Administration now wants to defund it. Dennison says that worries him “a lot.”“If we lost our Appalachian Regional Commission funding, we would have to basically cut our scale of impact in half.”The mayor of Huntington, Steve Williams, was more blunt about the possibile defunding of the Appalachian Regional Commission: “Well, it’s stupid.”Williams is a Democrat and is running for Congress next year.Proponents of the Appalachian Regional Commission say it’s helped dramatically cut rural poverty, improve regional healthcare and education.Opponents say it’s a waste of taxpayer money. President Trump’s budget calls for the elimination of “unnecessary federal funding,” citing a 1996 government study casting doubt on the Commission’s effectiveness. President Ronald Reagan also tried to defund it repeatedly.Williams says pulling the plug on the Appalachian Regional Commission would send a clear message: “That says to me that they’re giving up on this area.”For now, Congress has voted to extend the program’s funding through the end of the year.Dan Conant, the founder of Solar Holler, stays clear of politics. He’s interested in market economics. And at the end of the day, he thinks he’s betting on a winner.Conant says, “Within a week of cutting the ribbon on our very first project, we got so much interest around the state that we outstripped the capacity of everybody who knew how to install solar in West Virginia at that point.”Conant says he’s currently backed up on 16 projects. And Solar Holler needs trained workers to get things moving along.More: After generations working in coal, young West Virginians are finding jobs in solarlast_img read more

Kenya, Ethiopia scoring sprees in Olympics football

first_imgJohannesburg, South Africa | AFP | Kenya and Ethiopia went on scoring sprees Wednesday as the African football qualifying competition for the 2020 Olympic Games in Japan kicked off.The Kenyans were two goals ahead of Mauritius within 13 minutes in Nairobi and finished 5-0 winners of a one-sided first round first leg match.Johnstone Omurwa and James Mazabe were the early scorers and Pistone Mutamba netted after 35 minutes for a 3-0 half-time advantage.Sydney Lokole and Joseph Okumu netted in the second half for Kenya, who travel to Belle Vue in the Indian Ocean island state for the return match this Sunday.Ethiopia scored twice in each half to build a 4-0 first leg lead in Addis Ababa over Somalia, a violence-wracked east African nation making a rare international appearance.Canaan Markneh and Israel Eshetu netted for the hosts during the opening half and Awot Gebremikael and Abubakher Sanni scored within three minutes midway through the second half.Sanni was later red-carded and will miss the return match in Horn of Africa state Djibouti next Tuesday.Uganda left it late to achieve an unexpectedly narrow 1-0 win over South Sudan in Kampala with Mustapha Kizza converting a penalty in the fourth minute of stoppage time. The Ugandans would have hoped to establish a much wider winning margin ahead of potentially tricky second leg in Juba.Burundi got on top after half-time to defeat Tanzania 2-0 in Bujumbura through goals by Muryango Mabano, from a penalty, and Laudit Mavugo.Other qualifiers in east Africa were drawn with Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo failing to score in Rubavu and a clash between Seychelles and Sudan in Victoria ending 1-1.Daouda Camara scored in the final minute of regular time to snatch a 2-1 victory for Guinea over Mauritania in Nouakchott.The Mauritanians made an encouraging start with Hassem Teguedi netting on 10 minutes only for Mai Traore to equalise with 72 minutes gone in northwestern Africa.Olympic Games football qualifiers are restricted to under-23 footballers with each country permitted three over-age ‘wildcards’ at the finals.Nigeria (1996) and Cameroon (2000) are the two African countries who won the quadrennial tournament.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

White actors will no longer voice non-white characters on ‘The Simpsons’

first_imgOn Friday, long-time cartoon sitcom “The Simpsons” announced that non-white characters will no longer be voiced by white actors.“Moving forward, THE SIMPSONS will no longer have white actors voice non-white characters,” the show said in a statement.While the main characters on the cartoon are white, there are several characters of color. Most notably, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, who was voiced by Hank Azaria. In 2018, Azaria said that he would no longer voice the convenience store clerk after the show faced criticism that Nahasapeemapetilon’s character plays up Indian-American stereotypesSeveral other minor characters of color on “The Simpsons” include Officer Lou and Carl Carlson, both also voiced by Azaria.Earlier on Friday, Mike Henry, who voices Black character Cleveland Brown on Fox cartoon sitcom “Family Guy,” announced he will no longer voice Brown.“It’s been an honor to play Cleveland on Family Guy for 20 years. I love this character, but persons of color should play characters of color. Therefore, I will be stepping down from the role,” Henry said.last_img read more

first_img“I was a little nervous about the condition of the track today, and she set some fast early fractions, and they were coming off the pace later in the day, but Flavien did a great job, and we got it done.” FLAVIEN PRAT, PACIFIC HEAT, WINNER: “I prefer a fair track. She wasn’t really comfortable on this sloppy track today but she has so much talent that didn’t even matter. Her talent made all the difference.” JOCKEY QUOTES JOE CIAGLIA, PACIFIC HEAT, WINNER: “She won at Del Mar, she won on the grass, she won the dirt, she won going short, she won going long – so she’s very versatile. She’s got a lot of talent. We might wait two months and go to the Acorn Stakes. Before Del Mar starts and we go back to turf, the Acorn is a definite possibility. It’s a nice progression.” NOTES: The winning owners are Sharon Alesia of Carlsbad; Mike Burns; and Joe Ciaglia of Upland. TRAINER QUOTES -30-last_img read more

Bafana get down to training

first_img28 May 2009With less than three weeks to go before the kickoff of the 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup, the Bafana Bafana training camp at Johannesburg Stadium is abuzz with activity.Speaking to BuaNews on Wednesday after an intense training session, Bafana Bafana Captain Aaron Mokoena said the expectations of South African fans was motivation enough for the team.‘Positive mood’“The mood at the camp is positive, which shows that the players want to go out and perform their best for the country,” said Mokoena, or “Mbazo” (Axe), as he is known to his fans.“We are playing at home, and that will add strength to our players, but on the other hand we will not underestimate our competitors because they have experienced players who are familiar with these tournaments.”Mokoena, who has just joined Portsmouth FC from Blackburn Rovers in England, said there was a good relationship between Bafana’s overseas-based and local players.“It is very important for players to understand each other on and off the field, because that assists players to develop mentally and also create a sense of family within the team.”Opening match against IraqThe squad is using the remaining days before the 14 June kick-off of Fifa’s “Festival of Continental Champions” to hone their physical and mental strength.The team will play against Mauritius in a training match on Saturday, and against Poland in a friendly match on 6 June, before locking horns with Asian champions Iraq in the tournament’s opening match at Coca Cola Park in Johannesburg.Bafana Bafana defender Benson Mhlongo told BuaNews that the team would not underestimate Iraq. “They are very quick on the ball and play aggressively. Though we are not frightened by them, we will have to play cautiously.“The spirit is high among the players, and we are looking forward to the tournament and to proving our critics wrong,” the lanky defender said. “It’s going to be a do-or-die situation.”‘Now is our time’Mhlongo, who has been outstanding for Orlando Pirates in the past season, told BuaNews that the players wanted to emulate the 1996 squad which won the African Nations Cup by lifting the Fifa Confederations Cup trophy on home soil.“Our rugby team and cricketers have won international titles. Now it’s time to make our soccer fans proud,” Mhlongo said.“We need support from South Africans, and criticising the team will add no value but will dampen players’ morale,” he added.Goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs said the entire squad, “from the technical team to the kit manager, wants to make the country proud.“We have the fighting spirit, and with the country rallying behind us, nothing will stop us from reaching the next round of the tournament.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

The Audacity of Belief

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now For some reason I was reminded today of the very first formal sale training I ever received. I was 24 years old. I was the only male sales rep in a room of fifty salespeople being trained. I was greener than green. But I was audacious and I believed.At some point in the training, we had to role-play asking for an order. Here was the scene they painted. The client is big. They spend $5,000,000 in your space. They have enough orders that they could give you an order and no one would ever miss it. The orders they have are all in your wheelhouse, and they have unmet needs right now. It’s a good role-play because it can be challenging, but there are a number of paths to a successful outcome.I was sitting at the end of the table, but I was called up somewhere in the first ten or so places. So, I did what I would have done in a real life situation: I asked for all of their open orders. The Regional Vice President playing the client smacked me down. I went back after her a second time. She was having trouble saying no, but she shut me down anyway. So I went after her a third time. She caved in and gave me half the orders.I thought I failed and sat back down. It felt like I failed. But no sooner had I sat down then my manager showed up to pull me out of the room. As we walked out, I noticed the Regional Vice President was waiting. Clearly, I was in trouble.She said, “Listen, you’re making a mess in there. Most of the people sitting in that room are afraid to ask for a single order. We’re trying to give them the confidence and courage to ask for an order. I love it that you ask for all of the orders. Please don’t stop doing that when you’re in the field. But in my room, I need you to play by my rules.”Before I could walk back in, my manager pulled me aside. I told him how bad I felt for failing. He said, “You didn’t fail. Everyone that asked for a single order got one. You asked for all of them and got half. If you’d have had a little more time, I think you’d have gotten the other half.”There are some benefits of being young and green. Believing so deeply in what you sell and your ability to make a difference can embolden you. It can make you audacious. It can fill you with passion, energy, and enthusiasm.I believed that my company was the best company in the world. I believed that my team could make more of a difference than anyone else.Believing is sometimes enough.QuestionsDo you remember your first sales training?Do you still believe so deeply that your emboldened by your beliefs?When was the last time you did something audacious?What are you passionate about? What puts the wind in your sails? What do you believe so strongly that it fills you with an energy that is contagious?Tell me your best sales training story?last_img read more

Hard Work Pays Off For Devils

first_imgTope guided his Wollongong Devils team to the Men’s Open title at the 2012 New South Wales Country Championships in Dubbo last weekend, winning the Player of the Final award in their win over the Central Coast Dolphins on the siren. The win was the young Devils’ side second consecutive Country Championships title, and Tope says it’s great to see the team is reaping the rewards for the efforts they are putting in. “We’ve put a lot of work into them but the motto of the group is that ‘you make your own luck’ so they are the ones who turn up to training and they are the ones that put the effort in and do the extras and stuff, all we do is shape them and polish them,” Tope said. “It’s never really been driven about results it’s about how you perform and how you hold yourself and to have fun. The win is great but it’s actually better to see them become good models of the game and I guess examples for other kids coming through the system as well, I think that’s where the Country Champs are so important. That was the purpose for us to go away, to have a good time as a group, perform well but act accordingly off the field as well.”“We had three guys who played in their first tournament for the Devils in the Men’s group and that was Dylan Menzies and Matt and Adam Clune. All of them were actually outstanding. They know if they don’t perform and do the wrong thing there are 20 guys that can take their spot and they stepped up to the plate and were probably three of our best players over the weekend and everyone played well.”Tope became involved with the Devils in 2008 after moving to Wollongong and when a knee injury sidelined him in 2009 he took on the challenge of coaching one of the junior Devils teams with fellow Australian Men’s Open player, Terry Deegan. Over the past couple of years the side has developed to a point where they will this year compete in the New South Wales Touch Association’s (NSWTA) Vawdon Cup Men’s Premier League competition. “I tore the cruciate in my knee in November 2009 and I figured I was going to be out for roughly six to nine months or however long it takes to get back, and I needed a project to keep me interested so we took the Junior State Cup team, the under 18’s Boys.” “We trained them up over the past couple of years and piece by piece they got better and more guys have joined in and now we’ve got a bit of a system where, they played division one last year in Vawdon Cup and State Cup, won the State Cup, made the final of the Vawdon Cup and the next progression for them is to actually play in Premier League.”It’s also been a successful 12 months for Tope, who has won two Country Championships titles, as well as the New South Wales Vawdon Cup and State Cup titles with the Eastern Suburbs Roosters. Earlier this year he was a part of the Australian Men’s Open team that played New Zealand in the 2012 Trans Tasman Series, something that has been a goal of his for some time. “To put in so much effort over so long of a time and to have so many setbacks, to make that team you could imagine what it was like it was just smiles from ear to ear. It was hard to sort of block out the occasion and play well because I was just so amped up and so happy and chuffed with the achievement so to actually win it and in the fashion that we won it and to play with guys that I’ve played with for a long time, my best mate was in the team, the coaching staff were so good to us. It was the ultimate experience in sport.”Tope travelled to Scotland to watch the Men’s Open team win its World Cup title last year and says it was ‘fulfilling being in Scotland but even more fulfilling being in Mudgee’. “I actually trained right through with them, I trained right up until they left for the World Cup. I was always going to go over anyway because I thought if I don’t make the team I’ll take my girlfriend over and my brother was living over there at the time, but to see them win, the way that they treated me was that I was still part of the team even though I wasn’t a player. To actually make the team and be a real player in the team actually added to the experience. Being in Scotland and seeing them win and seeing how well they get along off the field and the ambassadors they are for the game, I just wanted to be a part of it so much.”Tope admits its been a big 12 months and that ‘it’s not going to stay that green forever’ but as long as him and his respective teams continue to enjoy playing and keep learning, then that’s the main thing.  “As long as whatever happens, whatever the results end up being that we are still enjoying it, keep enjoying each other’s company whatever team I play in and keep learning and staying fit, no more injuries. The most immediate goals are to keep enjoying it, to stay fit and to keep learning, hopefully the rest will take care of itself.”last_img read more
