A Prince Tribute Mural Got A Surprise Flower-Crown On Easter, And It Was Glorious

first_imgOn April 21st, 2016, the legendary Prince left this planet, marking the loss of one of the greatest music icons in the last century. Following his death, fans around the world found unique ways to pay tribute to the mythic figure, including Sacramento, California-based artist Christine Stein. For almost two years now, Stein has had a commemorative mural of Prince in her front yard. However, on Easter Sunday, Stein got a big surprise when the bush behind the mural began flowering, giving her Prince mural a beautiful flower-laced crown.Stein told KCRA 3, a local news station, that she didn’t even know that the bush behind the mural could flower, explaining, “Somebody mistakenly dropped 16 yards of mulch in front of my Prince mural. It brought nutrients into all the plants in my yard, and then the bush started growing and growing. Then, just on Easter, it bloomed with all these flowers I’d never seen before.” She continued, “My husband pointed out to me, ‘There’s flowers on your tree,’ and I’m like, ‘I didn’t know it could flower.’”You can check out photos of Stein’s mural before and after it bloomed below!

Senate discusses football seating

first_imgThe Student Senate invited Leprechaun Legion president Matt Cunningham to its meeting Wednesday to offer a question-and-answer session regarding the new football ticket policy.         Student body vice president Nancy Joyce reminded the senators the session was informational and was not capable of changing the Legion’s decision. Cunningham said the new policy intends to give students more freedom to control where they want to sit during football games. “I did research at several universities, including University of Alabama and Ohio State University, which all implement a general admission policy,” Cunningham said.  “We found that that this policy does not compromise the students’ game day experience in any way. We don’t think it will be as big an issue as people make it out to be.” Judicial council president Michael Masi expressed concern about safety. “I could see situations where the enforcement of this is very difficult,” Masi said.  “For example, if I get up to go to the bathroom or get something to eat, what stops other people from taking my seat?” Cunningham said such incidents “probably will” happen, but the Legion hopes it will not be a major issue. “In the past, those front rows are packed – people without tickets end up there, [and] I know a lot of people move around,” he said. “That happened to me last year, where someone would take their seat.  That’s just one of the issues. The last policy wasn’t perfect; this one isn’t perfect. That’s something we hope people don’t take advantage of.” When asked if students will be able to save seats, Cunningham said technically, no one is allowed to save seats, although enforcement will be difficult. “It’s the same with basketball. Technically, you’re not allowed to save seats, but it happens,” Cunningham said.  “There’s nothing stopping people from coming to fill in those seats, but hopefully, everyone will be considerate.” Club Coordination Council president Maggie Armstrong asked what the Legion has planned for entertainment during the extra time in the stadium before the game. “This was something the whole Legion was really excited about,” Cunningham said.  “We have an opportunity to engage more students and build the energy. If anyone has any ideas [about] how people going to games early would like to be entertained, let us know.  I know at University of North Carolina they have body paint and music before the game, so that’s something we’re looking into.” As far as the timing is concerned, Cunningham said the gates will open 90 minutes before kickoff at each game.   When asked how students can become a part of the decision-making process, Cunningham said anyone can apply to be on the board, but the president and vice president have to already have been on the board. “We want the leaders to have an understanding of how the athletic department works, but every year the applications are open to the whole student body,” he said. “The big thing for us and what we’re trying to improve on is outreach to the students because we’re open to feedback from everybody.” Contact Maddie Daly at [email protected]last_img read more

Smullen excited by Eagle

first_img The Dermot Weld-trained juvenile is already favourite for next year’s Investec Derby after a scintillating display at Leopardstown which saw him come home five and a half lengths clear of his nearest rival. A half-brother to Weld’s Sapphire, who won on Champions Day at Ascot last year, the son of High Chaparral looks to have a huge future. “He’s a lovely horse. I don’t get too bullish about them normally because that’s not my style but this lad has been exciting us all year,” Smullen told At The Races. “We were really looking forward to him making his debut and he was as impressive as we hoped he would be. You’d have to be taken by his manner of victory. “We’re very excited about his future but he’ll need to develop, I was surprised the other day how immature he looked in the paddock compared to the others. “It will be softly-softly, that’s always been the boss’ style so it won’t change for this one and I’d imagine he’ll have one more run (this season). “We’ll then put him away and he’s certainly something that will shorten the winter for us. I’m just glad we have him.” Leading Irish pilot Pat Smullen admits it is a long time since he has been as excited about a horse as recent winner Free Eagle.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Qantas security staff to strike

first_imgQantas International has a new chief executive Up to 80 security screening staff employed by MSS Security in the Qantas domestic terminal are expected to stop work at 2pm for one hour over calls for a better pay deal.If a deal can’t be struck with MSS today, United Voice assistant secretary Pat O’Donnell says union members could carry out strike action including shutting down some of the security lanes and explosives swabbing on every single passenger.Mr O’Donnell said the meeting was likely to cause delays for passengers, who were advised to arrive earlier than usual for their flights.However an emailed statement released by Qantas communications advisor Sarah Algar said MSS, the contractor which provides security screening services for Qantas and Jetstar, has “contingencies in place”.“We don’t expect this will cause any disruptions to customers at the airport or flight delays,” the statement reads.Ms Algar would not detail what these contingencies were and MSS did not respond to calls for comment but The West Australian understands MSS will use non-unionised workers to plug the gaps.The United Voice union, which represents the security workers, claims the company’s Melbourne-based employees have recently been offered a far superior deal to those in WA.“They recently offered higher increases to Melbourne, penalty rates and better rates for morning shifts,” Mr O’Donnell said.The action comes during Qantas Chief Executive Alan Joyce’s visit to Perth.Mr O’Donnell said it was a happy coincidence the airline chief would be in Perth.“That was just a bit of luck,” he said.“We’re quite happy that he is in town.“Part of the problem with these contract companies is they make profits by paying the lowest amount of wages they can get away with but we think Qantas has to take some responsibility.”Regardless, they workers will return to work after the meeting wearing shirts emblazoned with “Paid Less in the West”.last_img read more

American agriculture brings people together over the holidays

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Christmas and other December holidays are steeped in a variety of traditions, but perhaps there is no other time of the year when celebrations revolve so strongly around U.S. agricultural products and thoughts of farm life.Christmas and holiday cards, trees, meals—all focal points of the holiday season—have strong ties to American agriculture. Although relatively few Americans have personal connections with farms, rustic farm scenes remain popular images on Christmas and holiday cards symbolizing a warm, nostalgic view of the life people long for during the holiday season.Most holiday traditions begin on the farm, as each year, some 25 million to 36 million fresh-cut Christmas trees find their way into American homes. The trees are supplied by some 15,000–20,000 tree farms, found in almost every state.Food from America’s farms and ranches provide the social centerpiece for holiday gatherings, whether it’s the hors d’oeuvres for the holiday party, crackers and cheese for visiting friends, or the main holiday meals that bring families together.American holiday meal traditions trace their origins to the meals served in the home countries of immigrants who have come to America, but the evolution of agriculture has continuously improved the assortment on the holiday table.Most holiday meals are built around meat. Turkey, beef, goose, lamb, venison, rabbit, duck and pheasant, and pork, were popular in England, and appeared on American Christmas dinner menus as early as the 1600s. Turkey, ham and roast beef remain the most popular meats served at American holiday meals. Hams have been featured in December celebrations in many countries for centuries. At one time in the U.S., turkeys were kept on farms because they required little care and could be used to feed a crowd without economic sacrifice. Chickens had more economic value for egg production, as cows did for milk, and the commercial beef industry didn’t evolve until the 19th century. Now, modern farming practices make them all readily available.By the late 1700s, holiday menus included ice cream, acorn squash, lima beans, sweet potatoes, raisins and nuts, cranberries, plums, peaches, and apples and cherries for pies.In the pioneer days, American Christmas menus depended on location, economics, home situations, and heritage. People in larger cities—as well as those living on or near farms—tended to have more access to a broad range of food items than those living in outposts, camps or wilderness areas. By the early 1900s, agricultural expansion made it possible to incorporate lettuce, oranges, celery, grapefruit and other fresh fruits and vegetables into holiday meals.Although Americans spend more on food in December than any other month, a traditional holiday meal with all of the trimmings remains a bargain. A holiday meal with turkey as the centerpiece costs about $5-$6 per person—less than the price of a burger, fries and soft drink at a fast-food restaurant. Dinner with ham, roast beef or prime rib is slightly higher, but still as little as $10-$12 a person, and less than the cost of lunch at a fast-casual restaurant.While still a bargain, the real value of a holiday meal is priceless: the true worth comes from the fellowship and joy of gathering family and friends around the table to celebrate. From the scent of a Christmas tree to the smells and tastes of a holiday meal, America’s farmers and ranchers are happy to play their role in making it all possible.On behalf of America’s farmers and ranchers, and all involved in American agriculture, have a joyous and safe holiday season, and best wishes for the New Year. read more

Porzingis hits tiebreaking 3, Knicks beat Hornets

first_imgKristaps Porzingis of the New York Knicks hangs on the rim after dunking the ball in the second quarter against the Charlotte Hornets during their game at Madison Square Garden on November 7, 2017 in New York City. ages/AFPNEW YORK — No Knicks player has ever started a season like Kristaps Porzingis.He won’t celebrate now, since he only cares about the finish.ADVERTISEMENT Doug McDermott added a season-high 20 points off the bench and Tim Hardaway Jr. had 19 for the Knicks, who have won six of seven after an 0-3 start. New York shot 60 percent from the field to catch up and eventually pass Charlotte.Asked what has keyed the Knicks’ turnaround, McDermott said: “Just unselfish play and having a guy like KP who is playing the best basketball in the NBA, borderline.”Kemba Walker, Dwight Howard and rookie Malik Monk each had 21 points in the Hornets’ third straight loss.The Knicks, who erased a 19-point deficit against Indiana in their last game, were down 15 in this one before mounting a charge in the fourth quarter with Porzingis on the bench. They cut it to four with about 7 minutes left, but Howard converted a follow shot and Walker banked in a 3-pointer to push the lead back to 109-100 with 5:34 to play.New York answered with four 3-pointers in a 14-2 run, with Porzingis’ clutch shot from straightaway making it 114-111. His drive to the basket with 11 seconds remaining made it 116-113, and Monk missed a 3-pointer before Walker lost the ball out of bounds on the sideline.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort “Too many mistakes down the stretch,” Walker said. “We made some really bad mental mistakes at the end and they capitalized. This is stuff we’ve got to learn from. We’ve got to be better with our execution.”The Hornets were 7 of 9 from 3-point range in the first quarter and led 41-32. They increased the lead to 69-58 at halftime even with the Knicks hitting 61 percent of their shots in the first 24 minutes.TIP-INSHornets: Howard was listed as probable before the game with a sprained right foot, though coach Steve Clifford didn’t seem concerned that Howard would have to sit. … Walker snapped out a shooting slump by going 8 for 16 from the field. He was 8 for 27 during the Hornets’ losses to San Antonio and Minnesota.Knicks: The Knicks (6-4) are over .500 after 10 games for the first time since the 2012-13 season, when they won the Atlantic Division title. … Enes Kanter scored 14 points.COMEBACK KIDSThe Knicks have come from at least 15 points down in back-to-back games for the first time since Dec. 18 and 20 against Utah and Charlotte.STRENGTH OF SCHEDULEThe Hornets have not only had a tough schedule to open the season, but they had to play it short-handed. Nicolas Batum has missed all 11 games with a sprained left elbow, while Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has missed five. Charlotte has played Houston, Minnesota, San Antonio and Memphis, some of the strongest teams in the Western Conference.“With the schedule that we’ve played, if you would have told me no Nic, really no MKG, missing Cody (Zeller) for a number of games, that we’d be 5-5 with this sked, I’d be fine with it,” Clifford said before the game. “We have a good team. This is by far the most talented team we’ve had since I’ve been there, and you can’t play without two starters.
