We’re also grateful for the continued relationship with our community partner, the Tournament of Roses. Their steadfast commitment to Pasadena, its people, and youth is a shining example of what we can do when we come together.”Applications were reviewed and scored based on the structure of their art, the organization and language of their written reflection, and the recommendation from an educator, coach or community member. The review committee was comprised of Tournament of Roses members, staff and PUSD representatives.“Working closely with PUSD teachers and administration, the goal was to make the scholarship as attainable as possible for all students, “said Dr. Bob Miller, President of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association. “The scholarship program included all PUSD high schools, inclusive of the district’s non-traditional high schools, and supports students that have overcome adversity and pave a way for their future.”The Association and the Tournament of Roses Foundation are focused on positively impacting the Pasadena community with charitable giving, volunteerism, and community involvement.As part of this work, the Association has partnered with Citizens Business Bank to launch Rose Scholars and other signature community programs.About the Pasadena Tournament of Roses® and The Rose Parade® presented by HondaThe Tournament of Roses is a volunteer organization that hosts America’s New Year Celebration® with the Rose Parade® presented by Honda, the Rose Bowl Game® and a variety of accompanying events.

MailOnline 2 February 2016Veteran campaigner Peter Tatchell yesterday came out in support of a Christian bakery company which refused to sell a cake with a gay rights slogan.He said he had changed his mind about Ashers Bakery in Belfast, who were found to have broken anti-discrimination laws when they declined an order for a cake with the slogan ‘support gay marriage’.The change of heart from one of the longest standing and most widely respected among gay campaigners came in advance of an appeal in the case which begins tomorrow.The McArthur family who run the bakery are challenging the finding that they broke Northern Ireland’s anti-discrimination rules when they refused to sell the cake to activist Gareth Lee.Mr Tatchell said: ‘Much as I wish to defend the gay community, I also want to defend freedom of conscience, expression and religion.’As a result of the court ruling against the bakery, far right agitators could force Muslim printers to publish cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, or Jewish printers to reproduce Holocaust denial material, he added.‘Will gay bakers have to accept orders for cakes with homophobic slurs?’ Mr Tatchell asked.READ MORE: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3427354/Tatchell-backs-bakers-gay-cake-appeal-Campaigner-says-changed-mind-firm-broke-anti-discrimination-laws-wants-defend-freedom-religion.htmlKeep up with family issues in NZ.

Alisson BeckerKampala, Uganda | XINHUA | In the past 14 months, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has collected more trophies than most players could only dream of in an entire career.A UEFA Champions League medal in June 2019, was followed by a FIFA Club World Cup triumph six months later. In between, the 27-year-old helped Brazil clinch the Copa America title as tournament hosts.Then, in June this year, Alisson was a part of the Liverpool team that secured the club’s first Premier League crown in 30 years.However, there is one piece of silverware that the former Internacional and Roma shot-stopper has yet to win, and it is the one that he covets most.“I dream of winning the World Cup, of being there [Qatar] in 2022. But we have the Copa America [in 2021] ahead and the [South American World Cup] qualifiers,” Alisson said during an interview broadcast on Brazil’s Bola da Vez television program.“The most important thing is to be included in every squad and win every game we play so that we can achieve our goal of qualifying for the World Cup,” he added.Alisson has been capped 44 times for Brazil and is the undisputed first-choice goalkeeper of Selecao boss Tite, ahead of Manchester City’s Ederson. Share on: WhatsApp He said Tite had instructed Brazil’s players to concentrate, first and foremost, on performing well for their clubs.“Tite says the national team is a consequence of what we do for our clubs during the season and how we take care of ourselves in our daily lives,” Alisson said. “Our preparation has an influence on everything.”“I hope to be a part of every possible national squad while I’m playing. Each match for Brazil is like my first. It’s a big responsibility, given Brazil’s rich football history.”****XINHUA

Liberia’s young international central defender Dennis Teah has reportedly signed a contract extension with Jordanian football club Al-Ahli (Amman) for another year, after an impressive season.The 23-year-old’s debut season ended with the 1st division Jordanian club on May 27 this year where he missed one of nearly 35 games; he scored two goals with more than five assists.The dependable central defender most often and interchangeably plays central defense or right-back defender for Al-Ahli.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer yesterday, Dennis confirmed the extension and said he would return to Jordan at the end of the month.“The season was ok, I played all the games, except one, because I got two yellow cards which is equivalent to a red card — but overall I was impressive and so the team extended my contract,” Dennis said.He indicated that he made a breakthrough with the club without injuries and is grateful to God for becoming a key part of a team which finished 5th on the 1st division league in Jordan.The Liberian growing professional player didn’t mince his words to thank BYC family for its support and said his success on the team was rooted from the discipline which was instilled in him by the club.Dennis was originally scheduled to stay with DC United in the USA, but controversially came back to Liberia.Dennis also played for LPRC Oilers. Acting LFA president Musa Shannon, who is also Dennis’ advisor said the association is proud of Dennis’ performance in Jordan and is positive that he would play in one or two of the top flight leagues in Spain, England, Italy, Germany or France.“Teah is a big player, one of the best and young players to come out of our administration, and a true product and we will continue to support and wish him the best,” Shannon said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
