first_img June 1, 2006 Regular News Lawyers needed as mentors Gov. Jeb Bush recently applauded the efforts of Jacksonville mentor Donald Wiliford and mentee Adam Hutchinson. The pair was one of six awarded the first annual Spotlight Award by MENTOR, the National Mentoring Partnership in Washington, D.C., last week.“I am proud Florida continues to lead the nation in mentoring gains and program innovation, and congratulate Donald and Adam on receiving this wonderful award,” Bush said. “They are a testament to the tremendous impact a mentor can have on the life of a child or young adult.”Wiliford and Hutchinson were matched more than two years ago through the State Attorney’s Office Jailed-Juvenile Mentor Program of Jacksonville. When they first met, Hutchinson was incarcerated. During weekly visits, Wiliford encouraged Hutchinson to study for his GED, which he completed. Wiliford has opened doors for Hutchinson in the construction industry. Hutchinson now works for a plumbing contractor.“The Jailed-Juvenile Mentor program is a critical component of the State Attorney Office’s comprehensive effort to reduce juvenile crime,” said Fourth Circuit State Attorney Harry Shorstein, adding the program has linked hundreds of juvenile offenders prosecuted as adults with caring adults in the community.Tallahassee attorney Steve Uhlfelder, chair of the governor’s Florida Mentoring Partnership, encourages more lawyers to become mentors.“Mentoring not only changes the child’s life, it changes the mentor’s life,” said Uhlfelder, who has been involved as a mentor or a tutor in the schools or with at-risk children for more than 20 years. “A lot of times, you haven’t seen what children outside of your neighborhood deal with.”Uhlfelder believes mentors are a vital presence in a young person’s life.The FMP’s purpose, according to its Web site — www.flamentoring.org — is to “promote collaboration among state agencies, municipalities, businesses, nonprofit organizations, individuals, and schools.”“I feel like if you have the time and you can do something, helping a child is the most important thing you can do,” said Uhlfelder. “The difficulty is that everybody recognizes the importance of what we’re doing but the problem is getting people to commit the time.“All we encourage people to do is to go to their local schools and ask the principal anything: ‘Can I get involved with a child? Can two or three people from our office help one or two children in a classroom? Can our office adopt a classroom?’ I mean, there’s all different kinds of ways to do this,” said Uhlfelder.To learn more about mentoring opportunities contact Uhlfelder at steve@sulaw.net.center_img Lawyers needed as mentorslast_img read more

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Zimbabwe cricket is facing a massive problem. The International Cricket Council (ICC) suspended Zimbabwe in July over a failure to keep the sport free from government interference, putting the country’s participation in multi-nation events in doubt. However, there is a ray of hope for the country when it comes to the cricket when Zimbabwe will travel to Bangladesh to participate in a Twenty20 tri-series which will also feature Afghanistan in September 2019. However, Bangladesh Cricket Board spokesman Jalal Yunus clarified that Zimbabwe were just banned from ICC events and not from playing any bilateral or trilateral series. “We have been informed by the concerned officials that there is no bar on Zimbabwe playing in bilateral matches. They are only suspended from ICC events. This is why we included them in the series,” Yunus said. Bangladesh were originally scheduled to play a bilateral series against Afghanistan in September, but officials said Zimbabwe had been included in the series following a request from the strife-torn country. The tri-series will be preceded by Afghanistan’s maiden Test match against Bangladesh in Chittagong from September 8.    Fixtures:September 8: Bangladesh vs Afghanistan Test match    Sept 11: T20 practice match between Zimbabwe XI and BCB XI in Fatullah    Sept 13: Bangladesh v Zimbabwe tri-nation T20I in Dhaka    Sept 14: Afghanistan v Zimbabwe tri-nation T20I in Dhaka    Sept 15: Bangladesh v Afghanistan tri-nation T20I in Dhaka    Sept 18: Bangladesh v Zimbabwe tri-nation T20I in Chittagong    Sept 20: Afghanistan v Zimbabwe tri-nation T20I in Chittagong    Sept 21: Bangladesh v Afghanistan tri-nation T20I in Chittagong    Sept 24: Final of tri-nation T20I in Dhaka Afghanistan will play Bangladesh in a Test match for the first time.Zimbabwe were suspended by the ICC in July.Zimbabwe’s suspension will affect their participation in ICC events.center_img highlightslast_img read more

first_imgGfinity has brought a mainstream brand on board as a sponsor of its Elite Series, this time it’s Lynx – the shower gel and deodorant brand.The company will receive exposure from Gfinity’s streams and social media, and will be integrated into ancillary content such as the spin-off show Game-On FIFA 18, hosted by Adebayo Akinfenwa.Gfinity Elite Series LynxAs part of the partnership between the two companies, Lynx will have the ability to promote its products through Gfinity’s numerous platforms until May 14th. The Elite Series already counts Facebook, Turtle Beach, and Noah Media Group among its partners.Mark Brittain, CCO, Gfinity said the following in a statement: “We believe the Gfinity Elite Series offers an incredible opportunity for brands to engage with male gamers and we look forward to integrating Lynx into the remainder of our season three content. The inclusion of the ‘You Gold Challenge’ in GAME-ON will enable Lynx to create content that goes beyond traditional advertising.”Jamie Brooks, Brand Manager, Lynx also commented: “We see Gfinity as a perfect partner to help us to communicate authentically with a gaming passion point that is so key for our target audience. The partnership enables us to integrate our #YouGold campaign into Gfinity content.”Esports Insider says: Adding a sponsor when the Elite Series is well underway is a surprising move by Gfinity, but it’s an important one too as Lynx becomes another non-endemic brand in the world of esports. Hopefully it finds the industry a welcoming and profitable space in which it would like to expand into, as more mainstream brands in esports can only be a good thing.last_img read more
