Mckenna Grace Stands Up For Turkeys

first_imgToday, Farm Sanctuary, America’s leading farm animal protection organization, announces that Mckenna Grace, star of “Gifted,” Netflix’s “The Haunting Of Hill House,” and “I, Tonya,” is their 2017 Adopt a Turkey Project spokesperson.Mckenna Grace Stands Up for TurkeysFollowing in the footsteps of Alec Baldwin and Ellen DeGeneres, she will speak out for turkeys, who are some of the most abused animals on Earth.Video: Mckenna Grace Stands Up for Turkeys: “I Would Rather Love Them Than Eat Them”In an adorable new video shot at Farm Sanctuary’s shelter for rescued farm animals in Acton, CA, Mckenna, surrounded by her feathered friends, informs viewers that turkeys are smart, social, curious, playful, and enjoy being petted and cuddled, just like a dog or a cat. She also acknowledges a sad reality: that although turkeys can live up to ten years, most only live to be a few months old.“Turkeys make awesome friends,” says Grace. “They are so sweet and they all have different personalities. That’s why I would rather love them than eat them. Sadly, 46 million turkeys are killed at Thanksgiving and never get a chance at a good life. That’s nothing to be thankful for. So this year, do our turkey friends a favor and keep them off your plate. Join me and be a part of Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project!”Since 1986, Farm Sanctuary’s Adopt a Turkey Project has turned the tables on the traditional Thanksgiving celebration by inspiring people to commemorate turkeys as guests of honor around our tables, instead of upon them. The project has saved hundreds of turkeys from cruelty while inspiring countless individuals to sponsor a turkey who resides at one of Farm Sanctuary’s three shelters in New York and California. For a one-time donation of $30, turkey sponsors receive a special adoption certificate with a color photo and fun facts about their new feathered friend — perfect for displaying on your holiday table!To learn more information about the Adopt a Turkey Project, visit adoptaturkey.com.last_img read more

This is unfortunate, as it was not our intention on any level. Our initial inspiration to create the piece was through witnessing its use in recent months as a powerful protest image.“Given the sincere, heartfelt response, supported by numerous personal stories we’ve received, we are removing the costume from our site.”pic.twitter.com/0w5NQS438g— Yandy.com (@Yandy) September 21, 2018But there’s good news for fans of sexy Halloween costumes: the site is advertising over 1,900 other party getups for Oct. 31.

The good goes unspoken, and unrecognized by the critics.We in the media know that we are not all good. But, we also know, that we are not as bad as the naysayers try to paint us.And so, it is up to us to recognize our worth and to give ourselves the necessary pat on the back.However, we note that with the advent and the spread of social media, a burden has been placed on the traditional media, like never before. More than ever now, we need to be very careful of our sources and to remember our tenets. Check and recheck. Ensure that we have the facts and to jealously guard against being the purveyors of what today is heralded as “fake news”.Mr. Capron noted that the awards were first held in 2015 when the pioneers in media were honoured, namely, Eileen Dupuch Carron, Kenneth Francis, Wendall Jones, Henry Saunders, Silbert Mills, Anthony Ferguson and the Broadcasting Corporation of The Bahamas (ZNS).  Mrs. Carron, the long serving editor and publisher of The Tribune, was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award.The Bahamas Press Club’s Media Awards 2016 covered and a wide range of working journalists who were nominated, judged and given awards for the fruit of their labour over the previous year.

It never became law,” he added.In the 2012-2017 term of a PLP administration, another FOI bill was passed, but still, there is no law. This present FNM administration, under the leadership of Prime Minister Minnis, is again promising to enact Freedom of Information.“And, in that regard, the Bahamas Press club will continue in the pursuit of having the government implement the FOI, which will ensure that not only the media but the general population would have free access to information,” he said.For more information and for ticket sales contact Lindsay Thompson at: thebahamaspressclub@gmail.com  Telephone: (242) 434-5643 or  (242) 557-0862 UNIVERSITY OF THE BAHAMAS BEST FEATURE STORY AND BEST HARD NEWS STORY TV/RADIO (UB Students Only)Nominees:1 – Dawn Munroe – Student, Media Journalism, University of The Bahamas2 – Leah Cooper – Student, Media Journalism, University of The Bahamas3 – Andrea Darville – Student, Media Journalism, University of The Bahamas THE AWARD FOR BEST TELEVISION NEWS STORYNominees:1 – Kyle Walkine – Reporter, Our News/The Nassau Guardian2 – Genea Noel-Ferguson – Reporter, ZNS3 – Karissma Robinson – News Anchor/Journalist, ZNSlast_img read more

Tlaib scraps West Bank trip over Israeli demands

I will respect any restrictions and will not promote boycotts against Israel during my visit,” she intially wrote.On Friday, Israel’s Interior Minister Aryeh Deri announced that she would be permitted a “humanitarian visit”, but a few hours later Tlaib announced a change of heart. Oppressive conditions “I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in — fighting against racism, oppression & injustice,” she wrote in a series of tweets.”When I won, it gave the Palestinian people hope that someone will finally speak the truth about the inhumane conditions,” added the 43-year-old freshman congresswoman, elected in January.”I can’t allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me & use my love for my sity to bow down to their oppressive & racist policies,” she said, referring to her grandmother.”Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me. It would kill a piece of me.”On Friday, Palestinian activists had been urging Tlaib on social media not to visit her grandmother under the Israeli terms.In the family’s village of Beit Ur Al-Foqa, Muftia Tlaib had been excitedly awaiting her granddaughter’s arrival.She intended to slaughter a sheep in her honour, in accordance with custom.”I see her coming to the village in traditional (Palestinian) dress,” she told AFP on Thursday, before the latest development.Boycott movement The United States, particularly under Trump, is Israel’s strongest ally.But the two congresswomen are seen by many as enemies of Israel because of their support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.Israel sees the movement as a strategic threat and accuses it of anti-Semitism — a claim activists deny — and in 2017 passed a law banning entry to foreigners supporting a boycott.Israel occupied the West Bank and east Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War and has for decades built settlements considered illegal under international law.Settlement growth has accelerated under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a close Trump ally who is seeking re-election next month.More than 600,000 Israeli live in the settlements, alongside nearly three million Palestinians, in uneasy proximity throughout the West Bank and occupied east Jerusalem.Israel’s initial refusal to allow Tlaib and Omar to transit the Jewish state on their way to the West Bank sparked outrage among Palestinians and debate about the intimate ties between Netanyahu and Trump.Clash of interests Despite fierce criticism of Tlaib and BDS on the Israeli side, the country’s media largely slammed Netanyahu over the affair.The premier was accused of putting loyalty to Trump and the Republican Party ahead of Israel’s clear interest in maintaining bipartisan US support.”After countless zigzags between what is right for Israel and what is right for Trump, Netanyahu chose Trump,” analyst Shimrit Meir wrote in the top-selling Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot.The affair could cause US Democrats to rally around their two Muslim congresswomen, commentators said, in a way which could prove detrimental to Israel.Ben Caspit, a journalist with the Maariv newspaper, said Thursday’s decision to block the politicians’ entry “set new records for shortsightedness and wretchedness”.”It will turn them into martyrs, it will turn Israel into a threshold dictatorship lacking self-confidence that is closed onto itself, that bans elected American officials, critical as they may be,” he said. Tlaib scraps West Bank trip over Israeli demands / Int’l Tlaib scraps West Bank trip over Israeli demands / Int’lCap: In this file photo taken on 15 July, 2019 US representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) speaks during a press conference, to address remarks made by US president Donald Trump earlier in the day, at the US Capitol in Washington, DC.
