Andy Stelman and Christine Perkins at the new shelter

Christine Perkins took up her new role just a few weeks ago and is already moving around the Bishop’s Castle community to make connections.

Bishop’s Castle Borough Council works in partnership with the South Shropshire Youth Forum and recently won an £18,000 grant from Severn Trent Water’s Community Fund to help set up a youth club and drop-in center for older teenagers of the region.

Employed by the South Shropshire Youth Forum, Christine’s appointment marks a step change in the city’s efforts.

Councilor Andy Stelman, who led the project for the city council, said: “We have now removed the stabilizers from the bike.

“Hopefully in the not-too-distant future we’ll have something up and running for kids by the end of June.”

Mr. Stelman says he is confident they will soon be able to announce the new premises.

He added that a community space in the renovated former Stars Newsstand in the city center has not been identified for a visitor center.

Part of the job of the new project coordinator is to determine what youth provision is needed and to seek out volunteer support. The youth club will be for structured activities while the drop off will be unstructured and a safe space for older youngsters to feel relaxed.

Mr Stelman added: ‘I haven’t worked with young people in 40 years and I’ve tended to be the leader – it will be nice to let go.’

Mr. Stelman is also involved with the town’s food bank, which is also looking for new premises. He’s confident of making progress there too.

Among the council’s growing list of achievements is the installation of a red shelter in the town’s skate park, after youngsters said they would like a place to sit.

The city council donated £6,000 for the structure which was created by local steelworker Matt Maddox after young people approved the design.

Moon Knight is a crime-fighting superhero in the guise of the moon. His costume gives him superhuman strength and the ability to quickly ignore mortal wounds, but perhaps the most interesting feature is his Batarang-shaped crescent moon projectiles, which he shoots from his chest and launches at the malefactors.

Some, on the other hand, have asked where these crescent moons came from. Marc Spector doesn’t appear to be a metalworker or have access to tools and we never see him recovering them after the battle.

wonder

Fortunately, when the issue came up in conversation with ComicBook.comMoon Knight writer Jeremy Slater was primed with the appropriate response…sort of.

“Yeah, I think it’s all supernatural, just some kind of magic, because the whole costume is kind of the manifestation of Khonshu’s powers. So I think he probably has a way to put those crescents back together, which he doesn’t have to run around the battlefield after everyone’s unconscious and get all his little blades and toys back in. But that’s also the kind of thing you try to gloss over as a writer because once you have to explain that stuff, that’s when you’re in the weeds.

So, in a nutshell, don’t overthink it. This also applies to Mr. Knight’s fencing sticks, which he seemingly produces out of nowhere behind his back.

While Moon KnightThe first season of Fade in the Rearview Mirror has fans eagerly awaiting the return of Marc Spector, Steven Grant and third personality Jake Lockley. For now, Marvel Studios is quiet, but you can expect them to eventually address the end of Jake and Khonshu’s clever escape.

It’s too early to tell if they’ll appear in a second season, work together as the Midnight Sons, or make another appearance in another hero’s tale (Blade?), but everyone’s convinced we need more Oscar Isaac in the MCU ASAP.

Baldwin’s Richard Spano Sings of Love for Timeless Silver Lake | Herald Community Newspapers https://forjaibi.com/baldwins-richard-spano-sings-of-love-for-timeless-silver-lake-herald-community-newspapers/ Thu, 12 May 2022 19:05:00 +0000 https://forjaibi.com/baldwins-richard-spano-sings-of-love-for-timeless-silver-lake-herald-community-newspapers/ Richard Spano grabbed his emergency penny to call his mother, Josephine.

Richard Spano grabbed his emergency penny to call his mother, Josephine. He was 13 and a student at St. Pius School in Uniondale, studying to be a priest, and his teacher had just told him he could win a trip to the Bahamas or a 12-string guitar because he got top marks on his biology test.

He called his mother to explain the predicament of his choices, and she told him over the payphone, “A trip to the Bahamas probably sounds nice, but you’ll still have the guitar.”

So Spano went back to class and asked for the instrument. Now, 57 years later, after a long successful career as a rock musician and songwriter, he has completed a song called “(Down by) Silver Lake” on his yet to be released second solo album, “In the Shadow”. . of Cupid’s Arrow. The song is an introspective homage to Baldwin, where a young Spano lived on Arlington Avenue, a time that remains among his fondest memories.

Although he now lives in Norfolk, Virginia, he remembers Baldwin as where his youthful choices led him to a career in music. It all started quite simply, with his admiration for the Beatles and their talent as songwriters and musicians. With this first 12-string guitar, inspired by Beatlemania, Spano began to write his own music.

Eventually it sold out the popular nightclubs and wine and cheese bars of the 1980s – “Line the block with people spilling out the sides”, as Spano described it. He initially faced some resistance from his parents, who adopted him when he was 4 and who had more predictable professions: his father was a sheet metal worker and his mother a trustee of St. Christopher’s in Baldwin.

But one evening his father, Diego, decided to come and see his son play at Mulcahy’s Pub and Concert Hall in Wantagh, and was amazed at the line of customers waiting to come in and see him play. Richard remembers when his father found him afterwards and said, “All this time I was telling you to get a real job, while all this time you had a real job…I didn’t know you worked so hard.

“Finally, Dad,” Richard replied.

He left Baldwin to attend Fordham University in 1970, but returned in 1979 to do a year-long stint on Wall Street, where he made enough money – topped up with $1,000 that his mother chipped in — to make his first record, “Jack of Hearts.” Although he spent much of his career away from his hometown, it was always in his heart, he said.

And this year he saw an updated photo of Silver Lake and was compelled to write a nostalgic ballad about it. Inspiration began to flow thinking of the days he spent at the lake in his youth. “I had this idea in my head as a kid, I would go down and throw rocks in the lake,” he recalls, “and I kind of got transported there.”

Spano attests that the idea of ​​Silver Lake is subjective to the listener, who probably has such a place since his teenage years that shaped him into who he is today. “You may never have been to Silver Lake,” he said, “but I bet you have a Silver Lake somewhere that you could keep to yourself as something special, and that’s what it is. . I always felt good when I was there, and everyone needs that; they must have a place to go.

Even now, when he tells his family and friends in Virginia that he’s going home, and they say, “See you in Virginia Beach,” he corrects them by saying, “No, I’m going home to Baldwin. .”

A Barrow SHIPYARD sheet metal worker recovering from cancer celebrates his 25th birthday today.

Ryan Wilson was diagnosed with lymphoma, a blood cancer in the lymphatic system, in January 2021.

Ryan suffered from intense night sweats, fatigue and other symptoms before being diagnosed. A scan at Furness General Hospital confirmed Ryan had cancer and he was referred to Manchester’s internationally renowned cancer centre, The Christie.

“At first it really didn’t come through,” he said. “I hadn’t even heard of lymphoma before that. I was upset, no one wants this news, and it was the last thing I thought would happen at a young age. But once I understood, I was ready to start treatment.

MEMORIES: Ryan and wife Shannon on their wedding day

“My family and friends were also shocked but they were so supportive. I couldn’t have made it through without them and can’t thank them enough. My partner Shannon was amazing, she stayed positive every day and it helped tremendously.

“The Christie was awesome. The staff made me feel so welcome and comfortable. Everyone was friendly and happy to help. They answered all my questions and helped me understand what each treatment was and the side effects.

“I started treatment, but my body didn’t handle the first type of chemotherapy well, and I ended up at Furness General with sepsis. While I was there I had further complications and ended up in intensive care in an induced coma. The staff at Furness General were amazing and I can’t thank them enough.

“The Christie’s specialist nurse, Martha Wilson, was also brilliant. She went out of her way to keep in touch with Shannon every day and explained everything. I’m very grateful.

“My consultant at The Christie then offered me a new treatment plan, a different type of chemotherapy that was gentler on my body and gave me more time to recover from treatment between each cycle.”

Ryan had 12 batches of chemotherapy over six months and completed treatment with 15 cycles of radiation therapy over three weeks.

While at the Christie, Ryan was treated in the Teenage and Young Adult Unit, a purpose-built £12million facility with single rooms, a dedicated gym and music room and two social areas for children. young patients. It opened in 2014 following a £10million donation from charity Christie.

Commenting on the unit, Ryan said: “I was surrounded by so many people my age who were going through the same thing, and it was nice to be able to talk to them about it. I really didn’t mind the two hour drive, knowing that I would be treated so well.

After recovering well from cancer, Ryan and Shannon, 24, married in November 2021. “Things are going really well for me right now,” he said. “I’m in remission, but I have regular check-ups at Christie’s. These make me feel more comfortable.

“I’m back at work and starting to feel like myself. I’m playing football again and recently started running to get in shape. It’s so nice to switch off for a while during the race. I have a great sense of accomplishment when I finish, especially if I beat a previous time or distance.

In addition to football and running, Ryan is an avid walker and loves attending festivals and music concerts.

He announced he hoped to run the London Marathon in 2023 to thank the cancer center for saving his life.

Fundraising played an important role in Ryan’s recovery.

“I feel like The Christie is really close to my heart now after everything they’ve done for me,” Ryan said. “They changed my life and did the same for so many other people. I’ve seen what they do firsthand, and it’s amazing. I want to be able to give back and help them continue the fantastic work they are doing.

“Fundraising helped keep my mind busy while I was on leave and going through treatment. It was nice to have something to focus on and it made me proud. We all know someone who has had cancer and it’s a great feeling to raise money for The Christie, I’ve raised over £15,000 so far.

Ryan had originally planned to run the London Marathon this year and was offered one of the most coveted places in the Christie charity in the prestigious event. But, as he began to step up his training this spring, he found he was in pain and still hadn’t returned to the level of fitness required to run a marathon.

“Although I have to retire in 2022, I still want to run the London Marathon in 2023 because it’s a once-in-a-lifetime event known around the world,” Ryan said.

“Not many people can say they’ve done the London Marathon. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. And no matter how long it takes, I’ll be proud to finish it for The Christie.

“Since I started fundraising for The Christie they have been very supportive. They keep in touch with me and are always on hand by phone or email if I need help. They even put my name in the hospital on a gold coin. It’s nice to be recognized and supported for what I do.

Sao Paulo, Brazil – Songs of “Lula, Warrior of the Brazilian People!” rang out as Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, the country’s most beloved politician, took the microphone at a May Day Labor Day event outside Sao Paulo’s iconic Pacaembu football stadium.

“We do not accept this hatred that is imposed by this genocidaire who rules Brazil,” the former president told the crowd twice, referring to the country’s current head of state, President Jair Bolsonaro. .

Lula, now 76, will launch his sixth bid for Brazil’s presidency on Saturday amid soaring costs of living and growing fears of authoritarianism in Latin America’s biggest democracy.

Bolsonaro, a gun-loving nationalist who admires leaders like Hungary’s Viktor Orban, has repeatedly claimed without evidence that Brazil’s electronic voting system is vulnerable to fraud, setting the stage for a potential crisis when votes are counted.

Brazilian pollster Datafolha said in March that Lula held a comfortable 17 percentage point lead over Bolsonaro in the first round of voting on October 2 – but experts predict he will narrow as the election nears.

“It will be a very difficult election,” said Thomas Traumann, political analyst and former communications minister of Lula’s Workers’ Party (PT). “For Lula, getting elected is only the first step.”

Hunger, key issues of poverty

Born into extreme poverty in the dry and rugged hinterlands of northeastern Brazil, Lula led strikes by metalworkers in the industrial suburbs of Sao Paulo in the late 1970s during the country’s military dictatorship, then is launched in politics.

Elected president on his fourth attempt in 2002 during a global commodity boom, international experts have hailed his policies to eradicate hunger and promote social inclusion in one of the world’s most unequal countries.

“Before Lula, many people in my neighborhood lived in wooden and cardboard shacks,” said Juliana Cardoso, a four-time Sao Paulo city councilor for PT, which represents some of the most disadvantaged parts of the vast eastern area of the city. to 4.6 million people. “Lula brought jobs, decent food, housing and a college education to the working class,” she added.

Today, with an economy shaken by COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine, inflation in Brazil is soaring with sharp increases in the prices of cooking gas, fuel and basic groceries, affecting many disproportionately low wages.

According to the Brazilian Food and Nutrition Sovereignty and Security Research Network, more than half of the population suffers from some form of food insecurity.

“People don’t have an income and whoever works can’t afford to put food on the table,” Cardoso said. “People in my district want President Lula back… They won’t accept scratching their bones to eat, or not having schools and opportunities.”

Unemployment has fallen slightly in recent months but remains high as many new vacancies are precarious and poorly paid, according to government data. Analysts consider a package of labor reforms aimed at extending the rights of Brazil’s ever-growing army of delivery app drivers a top priority and one that Lula mentioned during his Labor Day speech.

“The labor market is changing in several countries and in Brazil as well,” said Nelson Barbosa, an economist and former planning minister in Lula’s PT. “This requires an adaptation of legislation, taxation… a reform project that gives more security to the worker with the flexibility required by these current technologies.”

Important challenges

If elected, Lula will face significant challenges in alleviating the immediate problems of poverty while fighting inflation and ensuring job-creating growth.

“Brazil is increasingly specialized in raw materials,” Barbosa said. “The problem is that raw materials are not generating enough jobs for a country of 210 million people… You have pockets that are growing and becoming very rich in a country where the majority live in poverty.”

However, high commodity prices could help fund social policies and diversification programs for industry and green energy to generate growth, he said. “Brazil has done it before,” Barbosa said. “But the biggest challenge is governability,” he added.

If elected in October, Lula will have to work with the notoriously horse-trading National Congress of Brazil, where pork-barrel politics rule.

Experts predict that candidates loyal to Bolsonaro will fare less well than in 2018, but that Lula and allied parties will still be far from having the majority needed to push through the reforms, which will present possible problems of governability.

“Overall, Brazil’s Congress in 2022 is likely to be as conservative as it is now,” said Beatriz Rey, a political scientist and researcher at Johns Hopkins University who specializes in Brazilian legislative politics.

Lula chose former center-right Sao Paulo governor and 2006 election rival Geraldo Alckmin to be his vice president, a move seen as a pragmatic attempt to rally the country’s political center and business community .

“Without a doubt, it is an attempt to generate more governability, it has as much an electoral objective as a legislative one,” Rey said. “If it will work, I don’t know.”

The countryside

Traumann, the political analyst, said people would not forget that Lula’s predecessor, Dilma Rousseff, oversaw the worst recession in Brazil’s recent history. “The current campaign is too much about the past and not enough about the future,” he added.

Brazil’s Supreme Court last year overturned a corruption-related conviction that saw Lula jailed in 2018 and the United Nations Human Rights Committee recently concluded that the trial of Judge Sergio Moro, who served as Bolsonaro’s justice minister, had violated due process.

Lula, his lawyers, numerous other jurists and his supporters have always called the conviction a political witch hunt to prevent him from running in the 2018 election which Bolsonaro would win.

Although acquitted and by far the most popular politician in the country, to his many detractors in Brazil, Lula remains irresponsible at best and a criminal at worst. But other longtime Lula critics, like former Sao Paulo governor and now presidential candidate Joao Doria, appear to have toned down their rhetoric.

Doria recently told Brazil’s leading business daily Valor Economico that he “respects” Lula. “Lula is not Bolsonaro, Lula is smart and has a past,” he said.

For their part, Bolsonaro and some of his supporters have tried to portray the election as a holy war in which the far-right leader is the messiah. “This land is our land, it is our Brazil. Our enemy is not external, he is internal,” Bolsonaro said at a recent event with his political party. “This is not a fight of the left against the right; it is a fight of good against evil.

Meanwhile, the specter of some sort of authoritarian takeover in a country that endured a brutal 21-year military dictatorship backed by the United States also looms.

A poll by Datafolha last year found that half of Brazilians feared Bolsonaro would try to stage some sort of coup. The former army captain maintains a strong base of die-hard supporters, including in the armed forces, although most experts consider a “tanks in the street” type coup highly unlikely.

“The fact is that Bolsonaro is not popular and his government is not popular,” Traumann said.

“But on a scale of 0 to 10, Bolsonaro graciously accepting the election results, [the chances] are [at] 1 or 2,” he said, drawing parallels with former US President Donald Trump – whom Bolsonaro idolized – and his rhetoric of not accepting defeat. “We’ve seen this movie before.”

Sixty-three-year-old Geoff Dyer strives very hard in his new collection of intriguing essays, “The Last Days of Roger Federer and Other Endingsto convince us that he lived a wonderful life. And if you can measure such a life by having endless hours to indulge your passions without restraint or distraction, he surely has. But he seems to have missed something essential, and there is a grain of regret beneath his scintillating prose.

Let’s start with the good stuff. There’s his lifelong fetish for Bob Dylan and the way Dylan approaches his craft: tinkering with his songs, striving for a perfection that eludes him. Dylan has performed “Tangled Up in Blue” over 1,600 times live, with each rendition different from the next. Dyer tries to apply the same intensity to perfect his tennis game despite his age and recurring injuries. He admits that it is on the tennis court that he feels most alive; and he is not hampered by his competitiveness.

“The Last Days of Roger Federer”, by Geoff Dyer.

Dyer has been married for decades to an art curator. They live in Southern California, where he teaches writing. There are no children; something he claims he never wanted; but there’s something suspicious about how quickly he slips up on this major life decision. He is an only child from a working-class family. Her mother was a Methodist and didn’t drink. His father was a sheet metal worker. Dyer tells us very little about his parents; and less about his feelings for them. He says quietly, “I’m angry at the way my parents were oppressed, but on some level, I’m angry at them for internalizing their oppression.” Their house was suffocatingly quiet; Dyer was an only child and remembers being bored, lonely and unstimulated in their company. He fled early eager to discover the world.

He fills his essays with an infectious wanderlust. He finds satisfaction in denying the inevitable, and so far he has been able to pursue his fascinations unhindered. He had freedoms most of us would die for, free from the complications of family issues and the expectations of others. But one wonders if his excessive freedom has not stripped him of something so precious. Dyer seems one step away from the world; a wanderer and an endless observer. Even his ex-girlfriends all agree that he is the worst hugger. Nothing holds him back too long.

It makes sense that he’s an admirer of Jack Kerouac whom he describes as “an old-fashioned bohemian without a hippie bone in his body”. There are other writers he has a crush on, like Louise Gluck, whose poetry has an “inaccessible intimacy” that speaks to him. He also praises Jean Rhys, Larry McMurtry, Robert Stone, Martin Amis, Milan Kundera, Shirley Hazzard and others. Perhaps because he is now a Californian, he falls under the spell of Eve Babitz, “who knows the winds of southern California as the Eskimos know their snows”.

Dyer’s prose is full of twists and turns. He feels no obligation to stick to a linear narrative. He riffs on his infatuation with JMW Turner caught up with the way this artist plays with light and how it moves across a canvas. He sees in Turner’s work an infinity of kinds that appeal to his sense that nothing will ever truly end. He remembers having similar feelings when he was younger and attending wild parties where he experimented with psychedelics that allowed him to enter new realms of thought that seemed limitless until their effects wear off.

Soon he is contemplating Nietzsche, troubled by his descent into madness. There’s a recurring theme of his unspoken fear of dying that runs through these pages. Possibly because the author himself suffered a stroke in 2014 which resulted in temporary loss of vision on the left side. Maybe it’s just because he’s writing this work in the paranoid vacuum of Covid isolation. He mentions Nietzsche’s notion of “eternal recurrence” which implies that we will repeat our life moments over and over again in a continuous loop. Again we see him contemplating the possibility of the unlimited and all that that might entail.

Dyer idolizes men who refuse to give up. Women, no matter how resilient or creative, seem like an afterthought. He speaks with unbridled zeal about tennis players like Roger Federer who have tried to come back. His own dreams are filled with triumphant victories on the tennis court when he was younger and stronger. But sometimes those dreams backfire and he finds that “the ball seems to get stuck between my feet or somehow lodged in the leggy grass, so I’m stuck in a kind of stagnant dribble. Maybe my legs are shaking in bed because I’m trying to free myself from any entanglement that has happened in the unconscious. But Dyer is not interested in probing his unconscious thoughts; you can’t imagine him on a therapist’s couch. We feel that he would find that inappropriate. It moves in one direction only: forward and at full throttle.

When he plays tennis now, he doesn’t sleep at night, so excited he is with the day’s activity. He relives the game over and over again in his mind and finds himself “stuck in a tormenting whirlwind of yellow balls that gradually become a Slazenger-sponsored meteor in the tramlines of space”. In the art world, he seems drawn to those artists who had a late-life productivity spurt like Willem de Kooning, who was able to produce one painting a week. Again, we hear him relish the prospect of a second act or reinvention, full steam ahead undeterred by illness or someone else’s struggles.

Wherever he goes, music is his faithful companion. He likes Van Morrison, Miles Davis and John Coltrane. Classical music, especially Beethoven and Wagner, fascinates him. And of course there’s his admiration for Dylan, whose life he says is “so beyond comprehension that it seems almost meaningless: the result of a tangled extrapolation of how his songs have brought so much meaning to the lives of people who have spent so much time trying to figure out what they might mean.

Which brings us to Dyer and his quest for meaning. He’s been on a sort of journey that we feel his own disposition has thwarted; his inability to let the debris of life fall upon him. Sometimes he worries about drinking too much and tries to abstain three nights a week, but never tells us if he succeeds. He rarely mentions his wife or close friends and one senses that they are clearly second to his own concerns. We can’t imagine him crying or someone else crying.

This hollowness and this vagueness permeate his writing, which ironically mocks the freedom he salutes. He also interferes with our attachment, which his narcissism hinders. Dyer has had decades to write, travel, party, listen to great music and observe great art. He had good general health and spent hours on the tennis court, and the delightful freedom to follow his sights. But it is debatable whether this corresponds to a life well lived.

LEWISTON — Returning as an in-person gathering for the first time in two years, the 16th annual May Day Dinner, hosted by the Western Maine Labor Council, was held Sunday evening at Davinci’s Eatery to honor workers lost to the aftermath accidents and illnesses, and those who lobbied for better working conditions.

Waiters carrying trays of beer and food rushed in and out of the restaurant’s back room, which was bustling with activity and conversation as union members and their families gathered to mark Workers Memorial Day , which is recognized nationwide every April 28.

“We are going to recognize some people here tonight for what they have done for the community as a whole, as well as people who have lost their lives on the job and the more we can reduce that by doing it right and having the right legislation ahead of us to help make this a reality, the more workplace fatalities we can reduce,” said Don Nazaroff, a union and management representative for Sheet Metal Workers Local 17.

According to information provided in this year’s “Death on the Job” report compiled by the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), 20 Mainers died in workplace fatalities in 2020, which ranks the Maine ranked 20th in workplace fatalities in the nation.

About 16,700 workplace injuries and fatalities occurred in private industry in 2020, giving a rate of 4.3 workers per 100, which far exceeds the national average of 2.7.

The report lists a national average of 120,000 workers who died of work-related illnesses in 2020, and more than 4,764 workers were killed on the job, with black and Latino workers at higher risk of dying from work-related injuries.

Employers reported nearly 3.2 million work-related injuries and illnesses, although due to under-reporting the actual number of reported cases is actually between 5.4 and 8.1 million, according to officials.

After dinner, three awards for champions of workers’ rights and workplace safety were announced, followed by a prayer for fallen workers led by Reverend Holly Morrison of the Phippsburg Congregational Church.

Richard A. Grandmaison, a retired member of Sheet Metal Workers Local 545, received the Bruce D. Roy Award, named after a former Maine AFL-CIO secretary-treasurer.

“I didn’t do what I did to get awards,” said Grandmaison, 79.

A sheet metal worker by trade, Grandmaison eventually became a representative of the US Department of Labor, before retiring in 2006.

The Worker Solidarity Award went to the Bates Educators & Staff Organization, which was accepted by Darlene Zupancic on her behalf.

“I am very honored on behalf of the organizing committee,” said Zupancic, 55, of Greene. “What an incredible reward. We have worked very hard as a group to take the high road and be very compassionate to one another as we earn our solidarity together and this award represents everything we have worked for.

State Representative Ryan Fecteau, Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, received the Frances Perkins Award for his efforts to “pass laws that improve the lives of Maine workers,” according to the Western Maine Labor Council.

“I’m incredibly grateful,” Fecteau said. “It is the culmination of my legislative work and the defense of workers who have not had the chance to be recognized.”
