Howard Lavon Davis was honored for 58 years of faithful service to the Lord and his people at a reception at Murphy’s Chapel Sunday afternoon. Murphy’s Chapel was the last church served by Davis, whose service record is long and storied.Davis began his ministry service as a part time local pastor and was admitted “on trial” in the North Alabama Conference as a courtesy to the Alabama Conference.Davis began his ministry in 1953 in the Elba Circuit that included Brunson’s Chapel, Friendship, Ham’s Chapel and Liberty and followed with Glenwood in 1954 and Campground in 1955. The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Published 7:56 pm Monday, August 1, 2011 “In 1984, Davis was appointed to the Dozier Circuit and, in 1985, was made principal of Dozier Schools, grades kindergarten through 12th grade.“I was there for seven years before the school closed in 1993,” Davis said. “I retired from the school system in 1993 and from the church with 41 years of service in 1994. But as a retired supply, I served until 2011 – that was 17 years service as a retired supply.”Davis served as a retired supply at Banks, the Lapine Circuit of Lapine, Bradleyton and Petrey and Murphy’s Chapel.Davis said that his wife, Martha, has been a faithful supporter and has won many young people to Christ and to the churches.“The tributes from my home church have brought joy to my heart and have made me proud of the good church it is,” Davis said.

This was a new church. Then, in 1968, I went to Ashford that was a medium-size church with a fine parsonage. This was the best house we had ever lived in. It was here that we decided to take a smaller church and supplement the smaller pay by teaching school.“We went back to Goshen, and I got a job teaching at Luverne Elementary School. After two or three years, I became principal of the school. About this time, the Methodists decided to allow full conference members to become less than full time and take a job without losing their full membership in the conference. I was able to be appointed with less than full status while teaching and while I was principal.”Davis served the Goshen Charge for 14 years while he was a teacher and principal. He was in education for 23 years, with most of it under less than fulltime status.

Devin Shewell to transfer from Syracuse

first_imgSyracuse sophomore attack Devin Shewell is no longer with the program and will transfer, SU head coach John Desko said on Thursday afternoon.Currently, there is no destination, Desko said.The Lutherville, Maryland native appeared in just one game this season, against Siena in the season opener, and he recorded one assist, two ground balls and one turnover. The coveted Boys Latin (Maryland) High School recruit began last season as Syracuse’s fourth attack but since dropped down in the rotation, replaced by fellow sophomore Nate Solomon.In 2016, Shewell played in 10 games, totaled seven goals, four ground balls and a caused turnover.At Boys Latin, where he tallied more than 100 points, Shewell verbally committed to Johns Hopkins as a sophomore. Then, after junior year when he won a national championship, he flipped to the Orange.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“At Syracuse, the coaching staff seems way different than any other staff I’ve come across,” Shewell told in 2014. “… When I was on my visit there, it was a really cool on-field atmosphere with kids throwing (behind the backs) and the coaches just letting them play. I really liked that.” Comments Published on March 16, 2017 at 6:33 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @Sam4TR Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Transfer gossip: Second Fulham deal said to have collapsed on deadline day

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesFulham came close to signing striker Anastasios Karamanos in the closing hours of the transfer window, according to Portuguese newspaper A Bola.The Whites had already failed to land Aboubakar Kamara from Amiens, leaving Ivorian forward Cyriac as their sole addition on deadline day.And A Bola now suggests Karamanos – currently on loan at Portuguese top-flight side Feirense – was also a target for Slavisa Jokanovic.The newspaper claims the 26-year-old travelled to London to seal a deal, but a fee could not be agreed with his parent club, Olympiakos.QPR reportedly tried to sign Villa manEmbed from Getty ImagesThe Birmingham Mail have followed up speculation that QPR failed in a deadline-day move for Aston Villa defender Tommy Elphick.It comes after the Sunday People reported that Rangers tried to bring the 29-year-old centre-back to Loftus Road, after the departure of Steve Caulker to Lokomotiv Moscow.However, it is said that the move broke down when Villa could not secure a replacement.Former Brighton man Elphick joined Villa from Bournemouth in the summer on a three-year deal, and was initially named club captain.However, he has only featured in eight out of Steve Bruce’s 18 matches in charge and was an unused substitute in Villa’s 1-0 win at QPR in December.   Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

African Tempest takes UK by storm

first_img17 March 2009The Baxter Theatre Centre and Royal Shakespeare Company’s co-production of William Shakespeare’s magical last play, The Tempest, is taking the UK by storm, with five stars from several top critics and the entire season almost sold out already.Following its run at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Courtyard Theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon, the company is preparing for a five-city tour, starting off at London’s Richmond Theatre on 19 March, followed by Leeds, Bath, Nottingham and then Sheffield, where the tour ends on 25 April.Shakespeare would have been proud. Michael Billington from The Guardian gave the production five stars, saying that South African director Janice Honeyman’s production “combines racial politics with visual playfulness in a way that liberates this all too-familiar play.”Charles Spencer from the Daily Telegraph said it was “as moving and beautiful production of Shakespeare’s great play as you likely to encounter, continually inventive, bursting with spectacle and deep emotion, and proving, yet again, that Shakespeare is our contemporary.”The Financial Times said that “perhaps only a South African company could temper [The Tempest] so powerfully with a recognition of the vital necessity of truth and reconciliation to enable all the land’s people to move on.”And The Stage said Honeyman’s “electrifying vision of the play returns Shakespeare’s darkly lyrical text to the tropics” and “bursts with excitement and visual brilliance”.The lead roles of Prospero and Caliban are performed by two greats of the theatre: Anthony Sher and John Kani.Sher, himself born in Cape Town, and Honeyman first conceived the idea for the production eight years ago, drawing on the music, dance and ritual of Africa, set against a colourful landscape that is vast, beautiful and powerful.“I’m extremely pleased to be working with Janice Honeyman again – she directed me in the RSC production of Fugard’s Hello and Goodbye,” Sher says on the RSC website. “It’s also been a lifelong ambition of mine to be onstage with the legendary South African actor John Kani. So this feels like all my dreams coming true.”The Tempest transfers to the Richmond Theatre in London from 19 to 28 March, then to the Leeds Grand Theatre from 31 March to 4 April, followed by the Bath Theatre Royal from 7 to 11 April and Nottingham Royal Theatre from 14 to 18 April. The tour ends off at the Sheffield Lyceum Theatre from 21 to 25 April.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

The Art Of Technology And Vice Versa: Polyvore’s Jess Lee

first_imgRW: Since it deals exclusively with fashion and beauty, outsiders might not take Polyvore seriously. But what’s going on under the surface?JL: Polyvore is a platform built on pretty powerful technology. We do a lot of work under the hood. Our goal is to make it simple, beautiful, and effortless—and hide all the complexity from the user.So we’re ingesting millions of products every month, classifying the images as, say, a shoe, or a lipstick, or a chair. We want to make sure we provide good product recommendations, so we need to understand what the product is and what makes one product similar to another. Which isn’t just its color or shape, it could be its style. We have a lot of data about taste in order to make those recommendations.On top of that, we have things like the Polyvore editor [the tool people use to fashion their stylish compositions]…. It’s a drag and drop interface, both on the app and the desktop, so [a priority is] making that feel stacked and clean using JavaScript or Objective C. A lot of interaction design details go into that.RW: Do you ever find yourself taken less seriously as a CEO since your startup deals mostly with women’s interests? Are people ever surprised by your technical know-how?JL: Yes, I think sometimes people are surprised. The thing that personally bothers me is that people should be encouraged to work on things that they’re personally interested in. It makes work so much more fun.I love art. I like fashion. It’s not often that I have a job where I get to do that, plus combine my computer science background. I think that means this is exactly what I’m supposed to be doing.RW: So what are some of the technical challenges you’ve dealt with at Polyvore?JL: Recently, expansion. We’ve always been a platform, but we’ve been growing and expanding across new devices, making the move from being a desktop-only site to having an iPhone app, and then trying to shift toward being a mobile first company. That’s one of the changes we’ve had to make over the last year.Building up that iOS knowledge in house, for example. And figuring out how to design for the iPhone. It’s a very different design paradigm and also a different release process.  RW: We’re both anime and manga fans. How do your creative pursuits influence the way you run Polyvore?I came out of the Polyvore community, which has a very strong love of self expression and art. Some of the early sets I made were art in addition to fashion. I think I’ve got a couple of cosplay ones in there, too.So I think [in terms of] “always putting the users first,” since I came from that community. Also, that’s something they taught us at Google: “At the end of the day, you need to make the users happy, that’s the only way to be a sustainable company.” So I think that’s definitely influenced me.I think Polyvore is unique in that it has a little more creativity and artistry, even though it is also a shopping platform, and that’s something I’m personally passionate about.One of my favorite things about Polyvore is that we build technology and a platform that is almost like a blank canvas. And then all our users fill it with their creativity. It’s like a blank canvas that they paint on, and that to me is really interesting.You know at some point when I was younger, like in high school, I wanted to draw graphic novels or write manga and be an artist myself, and my parents, who are Asian were like, “No, go be a doctor or a lawyer.” [Laughs.] So I went into computer science. So for me Polyvore is a chance to—rather than me making the art, [it’s] making the canvas and the paintbrushes and empowering all these other artistic people, and that’s what is interesting to me. We mainly build technology, but it’s that technology that allows other people to be creative. Even the design of the site is inspired by art galleries. The sets, the content our community makes are incredible. We really think of them as works of art, so we want to make sure that our design fades into the background a little, the way that the walls of an art gallery are plain and white and simple, and it’s the art that draws your eye.RW: Polyvore began in 2007, so it’s ancient in startup years. How do you think the technology you’ve created has helped it to sustain itself?JL: What we’ve always been very good at is trying to keep things very simple on the surface. Designing our technology and our code in a way that’s pretty scalable and allows us to be nimble. A good example I can think of is that all of our UI [user interface] consists of components. So all the pieces you see on the site, the interface, every piece is designed as a small component that is assembled together, like puzzle pieces. What that allows us to do is make a lot of pretty rapid changes. And it also frees up engineering. Rather than having a process where you put together a pixel-perfect Photoshop mock, and then hand that off to an engineer, and they have to, for each page, hand tweak anything.Instead, our UI consists of systems and objects. You can make a change in one place and it changes everywhere and it also forms into a design that is pretty simple. So that’s allowed us to iterate rapidly on the interface and make new pages and new types of changes pretty easily while also enforcing consistency and simplicity. RW: What’s on the horizon for Polyvore?JL: There are three things we’re focused on:New vertical. Expand beyond fashion. We’ve always planned to do that, to go beyond fashion.New devices. Growing beyond the iPhone. Internationalization. Right now we are only available in English and we want to grow the audience outside the U.S. The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… ReadWriteBuilders is a series of interviews with developers, designers and other architects of the programmable future.Six years ago, while working for Marissa Mayer as a product manager for Google Maps, Jess Lee developed the hobby that would eventually become her job.Growing up, Lee aspired to one day draw Japanese manga comics, but her parents convinced her to get a computer science degree instead. As an adult, Lee channeled her creative impulses into Polyvore, a social network she joined in 2007 that allows users to curate “sets” of images, usually clothing and home goods, into artistic compositions. Manga and cosplay outfits feature prominently in her earliest sets.But Lee didn’t stop at her own compositions. She dug up the email address of Polyvore founder Pasha Sadri and barraged him with detailed ideas for new site features and tools. Sadri wasn’t irritated; in fact, he was impressed with Lee’s thoroughness, comprehension, and empathy for Polyvore and its users. He hired her soon thereafter. Four years later, she was the company’s CEO.What makes Lee, 30, a true builder is her willingness to learn and do anything—from coding to sales to management—to help Polyvore grow. While she still loves to create art on Polyvore, her greater passion these days is to extend a platform that allows her users to do their best creative work as easily as possible. ReadWrite: Could you offer some background about Polyvore’s mission regarding its technology?Jess Lee: We believe e-commerce was pioneered by a lot of categories. Digitals and electronics. The way we shop for those is very different than the way we shop for lifestyle products. Stuff you want to wear to express your sense of style.So for me Polyvore is a chance to—rather than me making the art, [it’s] making the canvas and the paintbrushes and empowering all these other artistic people, and that’s what is interesting to me. We mainly build technology, but it’s that technology that allows other people to be creative.We wanted to do something different. We wanted to give people a way to express their own style. Our goal is to empower everyday people to have a voice and show off what they want to wear and put in their homes. So we built the platform Polyvore. It’s inherently social and we want it to be the best place to discover and shop for the things that you love.We have 20 million people who visit the site every month. They make up our passionate, engaged user community. We drive a lot of traffic to retailers, and people shop a lot through the site. The average they spend is about $200.ReadWrite: How does your computer science background inform your leadership at Polyvore?JL: My background is that I’m a product manager. Great product managers are the people who, in addition to driving the product vision and coordinating across the company, they’re the people who catch the things that fall through the cracks.A lot of times you have to make decisions, prioritization decisions, based on bang for the buck. How useful is this feature going to be divided by how much time it’s going to take to build it? If you don’t know what the buck is, if you don’t know how long it’s going to take to build, you might make the wrong prioritization decision.So I think good PMs, if they have the technical background, they can do that calculation in their heads because they’re familiar with the code or have a CS background. That’s something that has always been useful for me. Because if we need to prioritize one product strategy, one product feature over another—because I have a CS background, as does most of our product and design team, we’re able to think about that, and it helps us make our decisions. lauren orsinicenter_img Tags:#Builders#Polyvore#social media Related Posts Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditlast_img read more

Dwyane Wade, LeBron James embrace final chance to compete on court

first_img“I knew that at some point in the game, it was going to hit me that this was the last time we were competing against each other,” Wade said. “It hit me right away, once that buzzer sounded and we got the opportunity on the court to just look at each other and be like, ‘Man, this has been fun. This has been one hell of a ride, and we’ve enjoyed it together.’”James put up 28 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds. Wade scored all 15 of his points in the second half to go with 10 assists and five boards.But the best moments arrived late when James and Wade finally guarded each other, playing one last one-on-one game for keeps.Defense won out on both ends, probably because they know each other well enough to take away their strengths. They funneled each other to drive to their more uncomfortable sides, and James forced Wade to attempt a 27-foot turnaround, fadeaway 3-pointer that missed badly with 7.2 seconds left.Wade was more open when he missed a 3 that would have put the Heat ahead with 22.5 seconds left.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “I needed that one,” Wade said with a grimace. “I wanted it so bad. I think I wanted it too much. It would have definitely been memorable. But this is my last time playing against this guy, you know? This is the holy grail in the NBA. Unless we figure this thing out and we go to the Finals, this is the holy grail for me. The competition of playing against the game’s greatest player. Playing it in LA. I thanked him for bringing us to this stage for our last hurrah on this stage. It gets no better than this.”Barring a change of Wade’s retirement plans or that incredibly unlikely NBA Finals matchup, they’ll never face each other in a real game — and the Lakers’ victory put James ahead of Wade 16-15 in their head-to-head matchups over their career.James marveled at the symmetry in this final showdown, but both players said their times together meant a whole lot more than their times in opposing uniforms.James and Wade won two NBA championships and four straight Eastern Conference titles together in Miami, along with their Olympic gold medals from Beijing.“The game is going to take care of itself, but just the fact that we were on the floor doing what we love to do, that’s what’s more important,” James said. “Wins and losses are going to happen throughout the course of the season and throughout the course of your career, but those moments right there, you can’t ever get back.”James and Wade swapped jerseys after the final buzzer, their bittersweet emotions overshadowed by the excitement of the moment and the possibilities of the future.
