STATE REP RACE Prinzivalli Pledges To Opt Out Of Pension System

first_imgTEWKSBURY, MA — Below is a press release from the campaign of 19th Middlesex State Representative candidate Pina Prinzivalli (R-Tewksbury):On Monday, Pina Prinzivalli, the Republican nominee for State Representative in the 19th Middlesex District, announced that she will be opting out of the state pension system when elected, calling it the “Give Back Pledge.”“I’m not running to enrich myself with taxpayer dollars,” said Prinzivalli, a 34 year old career professional who has worked in the private sector since she was a teenager. “I hear a lot of candidates, including my opponent Mr. Robertson, say that they’re running because they want to give back. I can’t think of a better way to give back than by opting out of the pension system. As someone who is getting married at the end of next year and has dreams of becoming a mom, I want to make the district the best place to live, work and raise a family. That’s my priority and commitment to you.”In January, Prinzivalli pledged to never vote herself a pay raise and if there is ever an increase in base salary, Prinzivalli will donate the amount to charity.“It’s the right thing to do and standing up for what is right is what my campaign is all about,” said Prinzivalli. “Whether it’s standing up against the boycott of Dandi-Lyons or committing to voting ‘NO’ on becoming a Sanctuary State, I will be a bold voice for the district on Beacon Hill.”Prinzivalli points to the January, 2017 pay raise vote as the reason why she wanted to run for State Rep. Dave Robertson (D-Tewksbury) was chief of staff for the office that voted for the pay raises.“At the debate, my opponent made it perfectly clear that this is a career for him when he announced that he was against term limits,” said Prinzivalli. “It’s time we send someone from the working class, and not the political class to the State House. I want to be your family’s voice on Beacon Hill and that’s why I’m asking for your vote.”Early voting is underway through November 2. The general election is November 6th.Pina Prinzivalli and The Giving Back” Pledge(NOTE: The above press release is from State Rep. Pina Prinzivalli’s campaign.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Bangladeshi peacekeepers renovate S Sudan football fields

first_imgUNMISS is contributing to the third National Unity Day in Juba by means of its Bangladeshi Engineering Contingent, which is renovating football fields in the capital.Bangladesh’s engineering contingent in South Sudan has been tasked with renovation of football fields to be used for a variety of National Unity Day activities.The Bangladeshi peacekeepers are contributing to youthful festivities, under the umbrella of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).The mission said it is supporting this year’s annual National Unity Day by renovating four football fields in Juba.”Hundreds of youths from across the country will get together for sports and other activities to promote inter-ethnic interaction and a spirit of fair play and peace.,” the mission said in a news release.The opening ceremony of the event will be held at the Juba Football Stadium on 27 January and it will end on 4 February.According to the news release, work has already begun on the pitch in Juba-One, with the fields of Buluk, Zahra and St. Paul’s to follow.Officer-in-charge of some of the engineering work, Lieutenant Masud, says the tasks of the contingent will include the grading and levelling of the football grounds, as well as digging drains along their perimeters.Lemor William Joseph, assistant director for youth, training and innovation, a component of the culture, youth and sports ministry of that country, appreciated the efforts of the UN peacekeeping mission.“Actually it is a very great work that UNMISS is doing for us, because really to renovate these fields would have been very expensive,” he said.The Japan International Cooperation Agency, JICA, will finance the logistics of bringing the participating youths to the National Unity Day.During the 2017 edition of the National Unity Day, approximately 500 boys and girls from twelve towns from across South Sudan and Abyei participated in football and athletics competitions.This year youths from all of the states of the country are expected to take part.last_img read more

Mumbais iconic music store Rhythm House to shut shop

first_imgYoungsters browsing through the latest rock album, an elderly couple searching for a devotional track and a tourist hunting for his favourite piece of Indian music -on any day this can be a close description for the city’s iconic music store, the Rhythm House.Except, it is the beginning of the end for the 67-year-old place which is slated to shut shop in 2016.Situated in south Mumbai, nestled between Kala Ghoda and Jehangir Art Gallery, Rhythm House was established in 1948. Also Read – Punjab on alert after release of excess water from Bhakra damKnown for its extremely rich and diverse collection of music and movies, the store was so popular it was often frequented by personalities like Mumtaz, Shammi Kapoor, A R Rahman, Rahul Sharma and Zakir Hussain.This was, however, before the illegal music downloads on Internet became a norm, which led to the decision by owners to shut down by end of February, next year.“It saddens us to inform you the time has come for us to bid goodbye to the music and video business for reasons that need no elaboration. We are the last of our city’s large format music and video stores to yield to the challenges posed by new technologies and piracy,” it says on the shop’s website. Ajay Parmar, who has been working in Rhythm House for over a decade is now looking at a blank future ahead of the shop’s closure. Also Read – Union Min doubts ‘vote count’ in Bareilly, seeks probe“We all are extremely sad. I have worked here for 12 years, and now I need to look for other jobs. The knowledge of music which I had accumulated over the years will go to waste. Where can I possibly use this knowledge now?” he says. The store withstood the forever dynamic market – from selling vending 78 rpm lacquered disc, LP vinyl disc, cassettes in the initial years, to comfortably adapting to the arrival of compact disc, VCDs, DVDs and even the newest optical Blu-Ray discs. But it seems the Internet age, with consumers downloading music at their finger tips, which served the final blow for the store.“Internet downloads and piracy has killed everything. What can we possibly do about that. Online shopping lacks the one on one interaction we have here at our store. You can’t get that anywhere else,” says Parmar.The store, which had a staff strength of 45, two years ago, now has almost 30 people. Even though the period from December-February has always been a “peak season”, the only crowd the store is witnessing this time is that of loyal patrons, coming to take in the last few days of the place.“A lot has changed over the years. The public has stopped coming to the store. Even today when there is a heavy sale going on, not many new people are coming. I have seen this place grow, to watch it in this state is sad,” says Raees, an employee at the store for nearly 20 years.last_img read more
