BRITISH Airways won the latest round in its bruising battle with cabin crew union Unite yesterday, after the Court of Appeal ruled that reductions in crew numbers were legal.The Court of Appeal upheld an earlier judgement from the High Court, which ruled that BA’s decision did not constitute a breach of contract.In November 2009, BA boss Willie Walsh said he would trim the number of cabin crew on long haul flights flying out of London Heathrow from 15 to 14.It decided to scrap the highly-paid “Purser” position – a senior attendant responsible for in-flight entertainment, paper work and the first class cabin – helping to save £60m a year.The moves sparked a bitter 20-month dispute with Unite, which has organised a series of strikes and industrial action that have cost the beleaguered national carrier some £150m so far.The Court of Appeal’s ruling significantly weakens Unite’s negotiating position. The union is now likely to recommend an offer from BA, which will restore travel perks that were stripped from striking crew from 2013 onwards – much later than crew were hoping.

An uplifting story can reach far more people on Facebook than it could with only traditional methods of distribution. However ugly comments can also be attached to it and cause a very different reaction than the story was intended. There are charitable causes that receive donations and help thousands of people, but there are also propaganda-type posts that go viral with misleading “facts” that can cause all sorts of hurt feelings and pain.Law enforcement can also be enhanced or hindered by the social media phenomenon.Michael McKinley, Chief of the Apopka Police Department, reached out to popular Apopka Facebook pages. In the letter, he describes the advantages and disadvantages of posting a crime on Facebook, and asks for the administrator’s help.“Media outlets and social media can be powerful tools in solving crime. Law enforcement agencies across the country use both to reach the community when they need to identify criminals.Over the past several months there have been a number of Facebook posts of crimes and suspicious activity that has or is occurring in or around the City of Apopka. As the Chief of Police, it is encouraging to see the community’s willingness to get involved in fighting crime. I applaud everyone’s efforts to want to notify the community and their neighbors about criminal and suspicious activity. “The Apopka Police Department does not want to deter the use of social media or discourage people from posting criminal or suspicious activity, but we do request that they notify their local law enforcement agency prior to posting something to social media. This will afford law enforcement the opportunity to investigate suspicious activity and/or be aware of crime occurring within their jurisdiction.”Chief Michael Mc Kinley, Apopka Police Department The posting of pictures and video of criminal activity could also negatively impact a criminal case. If a witness or victim sees a photograph of a suspect on social media it could taint the witness or victim’s testimony in court.Additionally, the Apopka Police Department has a crime analyst that actively tracks crime trends and patterns. By actively tracking crime trends and patterns the Police Department is able to more efficiently and effectively deploy resources to the areas of the City where crime is currently occurring. When crime and suspicious activity is posted to social media sites in lieu of notifying law enforcement, crime trends and patterns may go unnoticed.There certainly is nothing wrong with posting criminal or suspicious activity on social media and we understand everyone’s intentions are good. We only request that residents don’t use social media to report criminal or suspicious activity without first notifying the appropriate law enforcement authority.The men and women of the Apopka Police Department appreciate the community’s support and efforts to help them fight crime and appreciate the great working relationship we have with our community.”Annie Cunningham, the founder of Apopka Rants, Raves, Reviews and News, is in support of Chief McKinley. On her Facebook Page she wrote this:“Please note that this post is not intended to prohibit posts and is not a reflection on our Facebook Page – we all want to catch the bad guy (or girl) – so let’s do our best to help out APD and our community by adhering to this process going forward. Thank you all for working together to help our community stay safe.”Cunningham also included McKinley’s letter.Gene Knight of Apopka Then and Now also posted McKinley’s letter on his page, and offered these thoughts as well:“I believe the police should be called asap so they are able to start working the case as every second counts. I also believe if you post a crime that has happened and post it on Facebook and don’t contact the police it’s not doing the community any good. You are basically letting the person get away with a crime and the opportunity to go out and commit another crime. The police should always be called first before any evidence is destroyed, because the longer you wait the likelihood of the catching the person goes down. We will honor his (McKinley’s) request on Apopka Then and Now.” LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Bridge-Studio houses a painting studio for the husband on the east side, and a writing studio on the west side. An open air breezeway runs through the center of Bridge-Studio, connecting back to the site with an entry ramp to the north. Bridge-Studio is entered by walking up the entry ramp, into the open breezeway overlooking the Delaware River, approximately 120 feet below the site. Save this picture!Courtesy of hanrahanMeyers architectsThe breezeway fireplace hearth houses a flue for a fireplace in the breezeway, in the writing studio, and a third fireplace in the outdoor area below the deck. In addition to producing their own bodies of work, the clients own a prominent gallery in Williamsburg, New York, and a gallery/ event space, also in Williamsburg. The clients regularly entertain artists and clients from their New York gallery at their home in Pennsylvania. The couple’s desire for an appropriate setting to entertain artist friends created part of the program for the Bridge-Studio. Save this picture!Courtesy of hanrahanMeyers architectsThe architects designed Bridge-Studio as a kit-of-parts, as the studio is being built by the husband, and has been in construction since 2005. The project is nearly complete. The insulation and the underside of the roof needs to be installed, as well as the insulation and the underside of the deck below. All exterior/ interior walls need to be insulated and sheet-rocked. The fireplace hearth is built, and the client has partially installed the exterior stone sheathing. The final construction will include installation of balcony and ramp rails, as required for inspection for the certificate of occupancy. Save this picture!Courtesy of hanrahanMeyers architectsThis project is in two parts, as the architects designed the building as a kit-of-parts, and have proposed the building as a proto-type for other settings, internationally. The plans for the building have been sent to clients in other cities, and are available for free through the architects’ website. Plans are also available through the clients’ gallery.

At first, few people knew of the heinous crime carried out by three white Louisville, Ky., police officers responsible for the murder of a 26-year-old African American emergency medical technician, Breonna Taylor, on March 13, 2020.Breonna Taylor was honored with a 7,000-square-foot mural in Annapolis, Md.Taylor was shot multiple times while laying in her bed, when the police attempted to conduct a “no-knock” warrant for a phony drug bust at Taylor’s house. None of the police, including the one who fired the bullets that took Taylor’s life, were arrested or indicted for murder — not even manslaughter — by a Kentucky grand jury last September for this despicable act. Taylor lost her life exactly two months and two weeks before a 46-year-old Black man, George Floyd, was publicly lynched by a white cop who applied pressure on his neck for almost nine minutes, until he lost consciousness and died for the entire world to see. Millions of people inside the U.S. and worldwide organized daily rebellions and protests, including burning down a police station in Minneapolis to express their outrage over the systemic racism, especially the police terror that runs rampant in Black and Brown communities. It was in the summer of 2020 during the upsurge in protests that activists outside the Louisville community learned about Taylor’s death, which then became a main focal case for the Black Lives Matter movement around the country. National Basketball Association players, both women and men, wore warm-up T-shirts and sneakers with portraits of Breonna Taylor, demanding justice during their playoffs. NBA coaches wore similar shirts featuring her name. Tennis champion, Naomi Osaka, wore a different mask for every match she played during the U.S. Open. Each mask included the name of someone who lost their lives like Taylor to help bring awareness that Black and Brown women are also victims of racist police violence. It is important to use the occasion of Women’s History Month to keep in the forefront of the struggle names of Black and other women of color who bear the brunt of systemic racism and gender oppression of all forms, not only in the past but in the present.
