DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here Things change and the same can be said for prom. Prom in the ‘80s or ‘90s might have meant a corsage, a new dress and a sweet borrowed ride, if you were lucky. Today’s proms have become much more involved than a one-night-only affair (promposals, anyone?) with a heftier price tag to match, reports she knows. The annual Visa high school prom cost survey estimated that a promposal alone could run $324, with $919 spent on the average teenage prom-goer. This total is down 6 percent from the previous year.So here are 7 ways to save money on prom.1. DressInstead of paying full retail, you can also rent a dress online from site’s like Rent the Runway. On this site, you select a dress in two sizes for a low price. They even offer customer reviews to help with your decision on purchasing a dress.2. FlowersConsidering that a boutonniere or corsage could run you anywhere from $10-$25 each, this is the perfect time to teach your teen how to comparison shop. Trae Bodge, TV’s “smart shopping expert” and mother of a tween, recommends calling around (or enlisting your teen to call) local florists to find the best prom flower deals. “A good thing to remember with corsages is that wrist corsages tend to be more expensive than pin-ons because they are more complex,” says Bodge.3. MakeupThe number one way to save on makeup is to consider having your hair and makeup done at a cosmetology school like Aveda in Cool Springs.Shop around for corsages and boutonnieres. There are often specials at local florists.There are also lots of Youtube videos with great tutorials on special occasion make-up. In addition, you can check with your favorite make-up counter. Often they will do your makeup for you with a purchase of product4. TuxThere’s a fork in the road when it comes to teen boy prom attire. Does your son want to go black tie or casual? Comparison shopping and keeping a lookout for coupons at local tux rental shops is your best bet, says Bodge. If his prom style is more casual, purchasing a new and stylish suit may be a better choice since it can be worn on more than one occasion. Check budget-friendly and teen-friendly stores like Macy’s, Forever 21 and H&M first.Tuxedo rental or new suit?5. AccessoriesTo put on the finishing touches, this is one time when it can literally pay to be thrifty. Start by checking out local garage sales and estate sales for unique and vintage finds, including costume jewelry. And if you don’t want to leave the house — and commit hours to hunting through the bargain bins — you can easily find what you’re looking for online. Search for trash-to-treasure trinkets and one-of-a-kind accessories on resale sites like Craigslist, Etsy and VarageSale. There are also plenty of easy tutorials for adorable DIY jewelry.6. TransportationFresh and flashy prom transport may be one cost you can’t skimp on — since most teens won’t agree to pull up to prom in a minivan. There is a way to get around the steep prom limo price. “Instead of paying for a limo for several hours, take an Uber,” says Collins. “Limos often have at least a two- to four-hour minimum, which seems like a waste since you only need a car for the short trip to the event.”Limousine or Uber?7. PicturesAs much time as they spend on Instagram and Snapchat, your teen may still want hard copy photos that they can frame and preserve for years to come. “These days, you can take beautiful photos on your cell phone, so there’s really no need to invest in the pricey photo package at the school or local photo studio,” says Bodge. “Volunteer your photographic skills or call in a favor with a friend or family member who takes pretty pictures. Then, visit a drugstore like CVS or Walgreens to create any number of fabulous photo keepsakes, like photo albums, canvases, mugs, posters — just about anything!

Daisuke Ohata match winning try vs Scotland in 1999

first_imgWednesday Jan 12, 2011 Daisuke Ohata match winning try vs Scotland in 1999 Japanese legend Daisuke Ohata, leading try scorer in international rugby, has been forced into retirement following a knee injury. To acknowledge his contribution, here’s a great full field try he scored in the Sevens in 1999.Ohata may not be a name you’re familiar with, and you’ve probably never even seen him play, but in terms of statistics, the man is right up there with the best. In fact, he isthe best when it comes to the amount of tries scored, as he overtook David Campese’s tryscoring record in 2006.Of course many of those were scored against weaker nations, so it’s a controversial record, as with the current consecutive Test wins record, which is held by Lithuania. He has scored tries against France, Ireland, Wales, and Argentina though, and in his prime was a try scoring machine in both Sevens and Fifteens rugby.He scored 69 tries in 58 tests and playing in two World Cups. Sadly he missed the 2007 tournament with an injury. A few days back he injured his knee in a domestic match, prompting the 35 year old to announce his retirement, which he was due to do at the end of the season anyway.“It’s sad that it ended like this but I think I have had a good career,” Ohata said.“I feel I have left my mark as a rugby player.”This try comes from the 1999 Hong Kong Sevens, where Japan beat Scotland in the dying minutes with a wonderful length of the field try scored by noneother than gasman Ohata.

Campus organizations to host ‘Black Panther’ screening, discussion

first_imgLinkedin TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Facebook Brandon Kitchinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brandon-kitchin/ The event is being put together as a group effort from CRES, the TCU Black Student Association (BSA), the department of Inclusiveness and Intercultural Services, the Athletic Department and Student Government Association.With about 160 reservations, the theater is pretty much sold out, just like the movie had been all over the country. The purpose of the movie screening isn’t just so people can just watch the movie though, student organizer Leah Levels said.“After the movie is over, I want people to reflect on it,” Levels said. “We’re seeing black superheroes and their stories and struggles in the movies have real-life messages behind them that are worth understanding and talking about.”Thomas said he wanted the discussion to continue onto campus as well.“The movie has so many teachable moments that go inside the classroom,” Thomas said. “Students have a tendency to learn inside the classroom but they also have the tendency to learn outside the classroom, so if you can incorporate both, I think it’s a great opportunity.”The movie viewing starts at 7 p.m. at the Hulen Movie Tavern but students must be checked in by 6:45.  ESPN’s ‘The Undefeated’ writer visits campus, talks media coverage on Nike, Kaepernick ad Brandon Kitchin is a junior Journalism major and TCU 360 line editor from Grand Prairie, Texas.

He plays bass drum for the TCU Drumline. printA multiorganizational effort to show the latest installment in the Marvel franchise is hoping to give TCU students both an entertaining and educational experience. A TCU-exclusive theater viewing of the new Marvel movie, “Black Panther,” will be shown Thursday night at Hulen Movie Tavern. The movie has been generating a lot of attention in the media for its star-studded and mostly black cast.“On a scale of 1 to 10, I’m like a 20,” Richard Thomas, Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES) program coordinator, said. “I’m very excited to see the movie with a very diverse group of people.” + posts Brandon Kitchinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brandon-kitchin/ Linkedin Brandon Kitchinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brandon-kitchin/ Twitter Twitter Nelson Mandela’s former prison guard visits campus to reflect on their unlikely friendship Brandon Kitchinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brandon-kitchin/ Memorial to commemorate MLK Jr. to come to downtown Fort Worth Facebook Brandon Kitchin Martin Luther King Jr. visited Fort Worth thanks to first African-American female graduate of Brite Divinity School ReddIt Previous articleAlpha Chi Omega Philanthropy EventNext articleCreative Writing Contest now accepting submissions Brandon Kitchin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution ReddIt Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

Editor sentenced in absentia to a year in prison, father arrested instead

The prosecution of The Nso Voice should anyway be abandoned as the offending article was based on a government document and the trial was clearly an attempt by the Mbui authorities to silence the newspaper.”Tayu went into hiding six days before the trial, in which he was sentenced to 12 months in prison and a fine of 850,000 CFA francs (1,300 euros) for disseminating inaccurate information, publishing an unlicensed supplement and failing to submit copies of each issue to the local prosecutor’s office prior to publication.As his father, a local community elder, had undertaken to ensure that Tayu would attend the trial, he was arrested and then released on bail of 50,000 CFA francs (75 euros). Unable to “produce” his son, as required by the court, he was sentenced to a fine of 500,000 CFA francs (600 euros), which he has not been able to pay in full.The Nso Voice has stopped publishing since the trial for fear of reprisals. The offending article that cited the government audit was headlined “Corruption / Embezzlement Scandal at Kumbo Urban Council” and was published in April. Tayu already had a spell in prison in 2004 on a similar defamation charge.As regards the other charges, publishing supplements without a specific licence is a widely accepted practice in the Cameroonian print media, while the requirement to submit a copy of each issue prior to publication has not been enforced for years in the major cities.The National Union of Cameroonian Journalists said plans to give local authorities the power to police the local press were scrapped at the start of this year under pressure from the media. As for jailing a father instead of his son, there is nothing in Cameroon’s criminal law that permits this.

Maoists ransack and torch television station

first_img Organisation Nepal: RSF’s recommendations to amend controversial Media Council Bill NepalAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Nepal Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders condemned a raid by hundreds of armed Maoist rebels who ransacked and torched public Nepal Television (NTV) in Kohalpur in the southwest on 23 February.The attack, which blacked out programmes in the west of the country, was the first launched by the Maoists, since King Gyanendra’s royal coup on 1st February.”It is unacceptable that the press, gagged on one side by the king, should also be targeted by rebels,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.The Maoist raiders struck shortly before midnight, breaking down the main door, stealing seven cameras and other equipment and cutting telephone lines. They stayed for four hours, burning files and setting fire to the offices before fleeing.Nobody was injured in the raid but it halted all programmes in western Nepal and the damage was estimated at nearly 70 million rupees (about 800,000 euros).All the national dailies splashed the story on 26 February. One editor, who asked for anonymity, told Reporters Without Borders that military leaders blamed him for encouraging the Maoists by giving the incident such wide media coverage.Maoist rebels planted a bomb at the same television station in 1997 and in 2004, they murdered a reporter from Radio Nepal and kidnapped at least three journalists.Rebel leader Comrade Prachanda has been on Reporters Without Borders’ list of press freedom “predators” for the past three years.
