There will be tea and coffee available, a comfortable space for the dog and possibly some doggy treats too!”Carl will then photograph and draw the dog and during his final week in the kiosk he will make artwork for each dog/owner. The project will conclude with presentations, a reception for dogs/owners and a group dog walk.The kiosk has been in its city centre location since the mid-19th century and witnessed 150 years of changes within the city, until the last JR ice pop was sold in the late 1980’s.Each month will offer a new experience, as artists present work made specifically for this iconic building on the southern side of The People’s Park.The kiosk’s interior will be transformed into a green building promoting Limerick as an environmentally friendly and ecologically rich city as part of a project by artist Mary Conroy“I’m very excited about being given the opportunity to work in this little piece of history in the beautiful People’s Park. I’m looking forward to creating something new through a collaborative process”, she said.The artists have all approached the possibility of re-opening the kiosk in different ways. Some see it as a studio, a theatre, community centre and of course a shop. Each month the kiosk, its history and how it relates to The People’s Park and the city will be explored through different media and art forms.Norma Lowney’s project ‘The Theatre Shop’ will  transform the kiosk into a performance space. Norma will develop a piece of theatre based of shared memories of the kiosk, the People’s Park and of Limerick City of Culture to be performed in the kiosk in the run up to Christmas.For opening times visit limerickcityofculture.ie TAGSCarl DoranCity of Culturefeaturedfull-imagelimerickMary ConroyNorma LowneyPark KioskPeople’s Park WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Previous articleLimerick welcomes Andrew Stanley unrobedNext articlePensioners arrested in CIRA probe Editor Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Email Advertisementcenter_img Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Linkedin Print Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed livelast_img read more

What Was Revealed in the Latest Episode of ‘The Walking Dead’ Could Be a Real Shocker

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York By Lissa HarrisWARNING: SPOILERS DEAD AHEAD!!!Glenn is alive. This big fat cat was let out of the bag in Sunday night’s episode of The Walking Dead. Glenn’s fate was one of the best cliff hangers this season, but Sunday night’s cliff hanger came in at a close second. Since this big reveal, the virtual world has imploded in an attempt to either laud or vilify Glenn’s escape under a dumpster after he used Nicholas’ body as an edible shield.This was one of the show’s most dramatic moments but not one of its most important.A few weeks ago I argued for the paramountcy of episode 4, “Here’s Not Here,” the relatively slow-paced back-story on how Morgan had acquired his “all life is precious” ideology.The debate between “kill or be killed” and “all life is precious” has been the show’s meat and potatoes all along, so to speak, and as we head toward next week’s mid-season finale, the writers’ are gearing up to serve us the main course.Last Sunday’s episode 7, “Heads Up,” gives us a variety of ways to look at this issue. Here’s how Morgan, Rick, Carol and Michonne discuss Morgan’s decision to let some members of the Wolves gang live after they attacked him. Rick argues with him: “Do you really think you can do that without getting blood on your hands?” Morgan’s painfully honest answer is: “I don’t know.”There is a brief exchange between Sam, the son of Dr. Pete, the killer in the season 5 finale, and Carol, TWD’s resident Grinch whose heart is three sizes too small. Sam asks Carol, “If you kill people, do you turn into one of the monsters?”But Carol misunderstands the questions and answers him the only way she possibly could. “The only thing that keeps you from becoming a monster is killing,” she explains.In another scene, Rick and Tara save bone-head Spencer, who is trying to exit Alexandria via a zip line that eventually, inevitably, snaps. Deanna, former leader of Alexandria, asks Rick why he bothered to save Spencer instead of using him as a decoy to save the others. Rick explains that he saved Spencer because he is her son and he values Deanna’s friendship.“Wrong answer,” Deanna tells him, implying that she thinks Rick saved Spencer because he’s really a good person who values human life.Does this mean that when push comes to shove, Rick subscribes to Morgan’s philosophy that “all life is precious”?I would say that the show’s writers lean toward Morgan’s side of the debate. Each scene described above would suggest it. To me, this is the episode’s big reveal. Oh sure, they have nine more episodes to play with our emotions and keep us flip-flopping on the ideological scale between survival of the fittest and respect for all living things.But we know where our beloved characters are going to land. Even amid the terror and the fear that comes from their dire predicament, their humanity depends upon their ability to show compassion and trust toward their fellow human beings. They are prepared to accept the possibility that their good will may be taken advantage of, rather than allow their connection to each other to be overruled by dread and hatred. As The Walking Dead has shown us since the very first episode, their vulnerability is their greatest asset because it creates inexhaustible courage. And with limitless bravery, our heroes can face any obstacle, even a church tower collapsing on their wall.last_img read more

A’s offense muscles up to support Kendall Graveman against Yankees

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, February 1, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Snow tries to move away off to the east through the day today, and in its wake we should start to see some moderating temps. Light snow this morning will bring an additional coating to an inch or two. Temps are going to be on the rise through the day today. We may not get much above normal, but we should be significantly warmer than what we saw over the past few days.That warm air continues to build through the weekend and into early next week. Saturday, we see a few more clouds in the north but sun in the south. Then Sunday partly sunny skies should be in over the entire state. The warmest air arrives for Monday with temps in the 50s to near 60. However, clouds will be building, and we can’t rule out a few scattered showers after noon and toward evening. Moisture totals there will be limited to a few hundredths or a tenth, with coverage at 30%.Additional rain sweeps across the state for Tuesday late afternoon through Thursday morning. We are raising our overall rain potential for the event to .5”-1” combined through the entire 2 to 2.5 day period. There can be some changeover to snow in northern areas overnight Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, but then we go back basically to all rain through the balance of Wednesday. We should see 90% coverage out of this precipitation event. The map at right is a look at the potential set up Wednesday night.Colder air comes in behind the system for Thursday midday and afternoon. We can see some snow in northern areas with little to minor accumulations, and then a little more rain south. Clearing begins at midday Thursday and should yield increasing amounts of afternoon sunshine. Colder air takes temps to below normal levels. WE continue with partly sunny but cold condition for next Friday through the following weekend.The extended period still has 2 threats of precipitation. We are toning down the action for the 11th, with only a smaller chance of light snow and minor accumulations. However, the moisture shifts farther back in the period to our second system around valentine’s day through the 15th. Moisture there looks more impressive, and we will allow for either rain or snow. Temperatures look prone to big swings over the next 2 weeks.last_img read more
