The pop-up market will feature everything from locally grown food and drinks to homemade wares and food trucks. Attendees will be able to sip, sample and shop from an assortment of Indiana products, as well as support the farmers and businesses behind them.Bruce Kettler, director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture, told HAT, “Of course, there’s food, but we have vendors that have other things besides food there. The part that I really think is a lot of fun is to see that these people then get a chance to actually talk to the farmers, the growers, the entrepreneurs that have set up these businesses and begin to talk to these people directly. Those conversations are fun to listen into because it gives people a real perspective of what an entrepreneur is doing, and it gives them a perspective about agriculture that they may not always get.”Kettler adds that Indiana Grown is also celebrating its 4th anniversary this month and he’s very proud of the growth of the program.“Starting from no members to now just under 1,500 members in that short period of time. I think it’s a testament to the team and the people that really wanted to have a program that allows us to identify products that are raised, grown, or processed in the state of Indiana.”To learn more about becoming an Indiana Grown member, visit indianagrown.org. And don’t forget to show your support for the Monumental Marketplace today from 10-2 on the circle in downtown Indianapolis. Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more


Rec center sees spike in attendance as students prepare for spring break


first_imgReddIt Twitter Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Previous articleHoroscope: February 7, 2018Next articleMen’s basketball edged by No. 10 Kansas, 71-64 Dylan Guest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR printWith New Year’s resolutions in full swing and spring break being less than five weeks away, the TCU Campus Recreation is staying busy.Jay Iorizzo, director of campus recreation, said there’s been an increase in visitors this year similar to last year.The rec center had an average of about 2,800 visitors per day in January 2017 but dropped to 2,100 in February of the same year, and to 1,700 in March.There has been a spike in mid-afternoon visitors from Jan. 16 – Feb. 2 this semester more than  11,000 people have swiped into the recreational center between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. The next highest time slot for the same period was noon to 3 p.m., where more than 8,000 people swiped in, Iorizzo said.With the increase in visitors, people have had to wait for vacant machines and available equipment in the weight room. Some have had to alter their workout or go at new times in order to complete their goals.Zach Pusic, a sophomore business major, said he may start to go at night to complete his workouts instead of dealing with the afternoon crowds.“I started working out in the weight room last November in the afternoon after my classes, and it was never too crowded,” Pusic said. “When I came back from winter break, I noticed how packed it became at that time and most things I wanted to use were already taken.”Dylan Larkin, a senior business major, has heard about how crowded the rec center has gotten and prefers to work out while most other students are in class.“I’ve always been in the routine of working out first thing in the morning; however, the gym not being crowded in the morning is definitely a factor of why I continue to go at that time,” Larkin said. “I don’t like going to the gym when it’s crowded and having to wait around if other people are using the same equipment I want to use.”Gym’s and recreational centers tend to become more crowded every year in January. More than 12 percent of gym memberships are sold in January whereas other months have an average of 8.3 percent according to a study by the International Health, Racquet, and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA).The full rec center hours can be found here.

Attacks on media offices

Accompanied by police, city officials and municipal employees cut off RTV M programming, forced staff to leave, and tossed equipment and recorded material into the street. The officials than sealed the office shut, legally preventing entry.The day before, Mitrovica Mayor Avni Kastrati had signed a decree requiringmedia workers to evacuate the premises. RTV M and the city have been legally disputing rights to the property since 1999. A court should have been allowed to make a decision, but the city government showed its unwillingess to wait for a legal determination. Three days before the raid, RTV M was advised that its staff should leave the property.RTV M founder and director Nexhmedin Spahiu criticized the city action as “arbitrary.” He said that authorities had waited until he was out of the country, in Cyprus, to carry out the operation. Spahiu said the mayor had ordered the raid in order to take possession of documents that provide evidence of corruption.“It is unacceptable that a city government order what amounts to vandalism of amedia organization, while a lawsuit is under way to settle the legal issue of rights to the property” Reporters Without Borders said. “We demand that RTV M be compensated for the considerable damage it suffered and that the city order be quashed. RTV M must be able to freely operate in its office pending the outcome of the court case.”Meanwhile, 40 kms north of Mitrovica, shots were fired at the office of RadioKolasin in the city of Zubin Potok. The attack took place on 19 July, two days after the raid on RTV M. A bank and the home of a police officer were targeted by gunfire at the same time.No one was hurt in any of the incidents and the reasons for the attacks remainunknown. But they demonstrate the level of tension in which media workers areoperating. “We are shocked by the attack on Radio Kolasin,” Reporters Without Borderssaid. “Initial investigation indicates that this was a planned assault. We demand that authorities take all measures to guarantee the safety of journalists and their workplaces.”Kosovo ranked 87 of 187 on the Reporters Without Borders press freedom indexfor 2012. last_img read more


Financial weekly closed for three months for reporting on a public bank


first_img ChinaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders today condemned a three-month ban slapped on financial weekly China Business Post, accused of having broken the law in an article on the Agricultural Bank of China.Elsewhere, the Propaganda Department is still keeping tight control over news linked to the toxic milk scandal. An investigative journalist has been gagged from reporting on the issue since July to avoid embarrassment during the Olympic Games.”While there is growing concern about the international banking crisis and the toxic milk scandal, it is appalling for local and national officials to try to censor media who are only trying to carry out their job of informing the public.””We call for the lifting of the temporary ban on the China Business Post and for the end to censorship of the milk scandal. Without these steps, the credibility of government promises of transparency will again be tainted”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.The China Business Post, which sells 400,000 copies weekly, was suspended for three months on 8 September by the press and publications bureau of Inner Mongolia in northern china, where it is licensed.Following negotiations, the newspaper was able to appear as usual on 11 September, but the 18 September issue was banned. This sanction followed complaints from leading officials in Hunan, southern China and from the Agricultural bank of China. The weekly in July accused the Changde, Hunan office of the public bank of poor management of assets.According to the authorities, the Beijing-based weekly violated a regulation that bans the media from publishing an investigation into an event in a province other than that in which it is licensed. The authorities also considered that the China Business Post should have questioned the Agricultural Bank of China before carrying the article. Officials in Inner Mongolia justified their decision by citing other investigations by the financial paper which reportedly violated the same rules.Press magnate, Bruno Wu, owner of the title through the Sun Media group, told the Financial Times, that there had been an “abuse of administrative power”. He told the paper’s staff on 24 September that he had decided to suspend publication of the weekly indefinitely to protest against the decision. A source at the paper also told Reporters Without Borders that an appeal had been lodged with the competent authorities.At the same time, the Propaganda Department has strengthened its control over the information available in the media and online about the contaminated milk which has caused at least four deaths and made thousands of other Chinese children ill.Several Chinese journalists have said that it is becoming more and more obvious that the authorities in July prevented an investigation into the toxic milk coming out so as not to tarnish China’s image before the Olympics.He Feng, a journalist on the weekly Nanfang Zhoumo, was censored in July when he had obtained worrying information about the public health effects of the milk produced by the Sanlu company. Again, on 13 September, an article by He Feng on the responsibilities of milk companies was pulled by the weekly’s management.A Propaganda Department circular of 12 September warned that it was in the interests of media and websites to limit publication of articles or commentary on the milk products scandal.Finally, the Chinese Human Rights Defenders revealed that economist, Qi Yanchen, who had already been imprisoned from 1999 to 2003, had been summoned by police after he criticised the authorities’ management of the scandal in an interview with Radio Free Asia.

Keble hall manager bows out


first_imgWell known around college for his unchanging  attire of bowtie and waistcoat, McHugh was given a fond farewell by Keble students in the college’s inaugural Summer Hall. James Newton, the then JCR President, presented him with a framed bowtie and waistcoat as a token of the JCR’s appreciation.The dress code for the evening was ‘smart with a hint of Gerard’,  and as such many students, male and female, attended wearing the hall manager’s preferred neck wear.McHugh, who attended Exeter College (matriculating in 1975), said he intends to do very little in his retirement. “I have some trips abroad planned, but other than that I think I’ll just relax and listen to some cricket on the wireless.”He will also return to Keble on occasion to host his quiz nights, planning one for Freshers’ Week. As the new JCR President, Sean Ford, said, “Gerard has made a fantastic contribution to college life, but his retirement is not the end. Gerard will still be returning for the quizzes, hopefully for years to come.”Despite being an Exeter alumnus, McHugh waxed lyrical about his time at Keble. When asked for his favourite memories, he explained, “From the minute I walked in, in 2002, I’ve been made to feel so welcome, so part of the place, it’s just been a delight. I can’t think of anything particular, except for maybe last Friday when you all made that big fuss!”The ‘big fuss’ refers to the several minutes of applause and cheering that followed Newton’s short speech of farewell and thanks at Summer Hall. One student even knocked over a lamp in his enthusiasm, having stood up to toast the popular hall manager.Despite several assertions to the contrary by Keble students, McHugh expects Keble to manage very well without him in the coming years. “It will cope perfectly well. It got along for 132 years without me after all!”last_img read more

Those that serve, teach


first_imgU.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan ’87 was honored with the Robert Coles “Call of Service” Lecture and Award at Harvard’s Memorial Church on Friday (Oct. 15) for his work in education reform.In a talk that outlined his experiences with public service at Harvard and beyond, Duncan called the battle for quality education a social justice issue, and urged the audience to take up the fight.“We need to make education our national mission. I invite you to a life of service that embraces that mission. Be a teacher. Tutor a child. Volunteer at a school. Transform the life chances of our nation’s young people.”Prior to joining the Obama administration, Duncan was chief executive officer of the Chicago Public Schools, where he implemented a number of reforms, including expanding after-school and summer-learning programs, increasing access to early childhood education and higher education, and improving teacher quality.The annual event is sponsored by the Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA) and recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to public service. Past honorees include Al Gore, former vice president and environmental activist, Marian Wright Edelman, president and founder of the Children’s Defense Fund, and Geoffrey Canada, last year’s recipient and founder of the Harlem Children’s Zone.Inspired by the work of past honorees and by Coles, Duncan said another source of inspiration was his mother. He recalled that as a child growing up in Chicago, he took part in a free, after-school tutoring program organized by his mother for less fortunate children in the city’s South Side, first as a student and later as a tutor to other children.Through that formative experience, “I internalized the belief that quality education can literally transform children’s’ lives.”The event’s namesake, Robert Coles, professor emeritus of psychiatry and medical humanities at Harvard Medical School, looked on from the audience. For years, Coles, the recipient of many awards including the Pulitzer Prize and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, taught the popular course “The Literature of Social Reflection.” Duncan took the course in the 1980s as an undergraduate and said it “did something for my soul,” adding that one of his best Harvard memories involved working with a mentoring program through PBHA.Evelynn M. Hammonds, dean of Harvard College and Barbara Gutmann Rosenkrantz Professor of the History of Science and of African and African American Studies, presented Duncan with the award. Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick ’78, J.D. ’82, introduced the secretary, saying he “brings a passion for what is possible for kids.”Duncan listed several Obama administration efforts aimed at “providing every child a world-class education,” and told the crowd, “We must have the courage to do the right thing by children.”last_img read more
