Students to be screened January 15, 2005 Regular News Students to be screened Before being allowed to work with state attorneys and PDs A draft of a procedure to screen law students who are certified to work for state attorneys and public defenders should be ready for the Bar Board of Governors to review at its meeting later this month.Board member Robert Rush, chair of the Committee to Study the Law School Practice Program, told the board last month that the committee has met with law school officials, Florida Board of Bar Examiners Executive Director Eleanor Hunter, and Bar General Counsel Paul Hill. It also met with Supreme Court Justice Fred Lewis, who raised concerns about the program with the Bar.The program certifies law students to work, under the direction of an attorney, in certain public service agencies, including state attorney and public defender offices.The problem, Rush noted, is there were no background checks of the students as part of the certification, and many had not finished their background checks with the FBBE. That resulted in some students with questionable backgrounds, and in some instances criminal convictions, being placed in the jobs, including with prosecutors.“We hope to have a rule ready at the next meeting,” Rush said.
Share Share Tweet Share The Vatican has been forced to amend its new book, YouCat, after a number of translation errors, including an implied approval of contraception.The book, a youth-focused compilation of Church teachings, was launched in several languages in the Vatican.The Italian edition has been pulled, with launch copies including an insert of corrections.The main error concerned whether married couples could plan the size of their families.In the erroneous Italian edition of YouCat, which is set out as a series of questions and answers, a question regarding family planning is mistranslated.The question “may a Christian married couple regulate the number of children they have?” is mistranslated from the German original as “may a Christian married couple use methods of birth control?”The answer is given as “yes”.The Vatican opposes artificial contraception but condones regulation of fertility through “natural” means, suggesting married couples can chart a woman’s menstrual cycle to help determine relative chances of conception.French editions of the book have been delayed and errors regarding questions about euthanasia have also been spotted in the Italian version, Associated Press news agency reports.“The German language is very difficult, as we have discovered on several occasions,” Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said.BBC News Sharing is caring! 38 Views no discussions FaithLifestyle New Vatican book dogged by translation errors by: – April 14, 2011
Bubba Wallace is taking the high road after facing criticism from President Donald Trump.In a tweet sent out Monday morning, Trump claimed the 26-year-old NASCAR Cup Series driver should apologize for being part of a “hoax” after a noose was found in his Talladega Superspeedway garage stall last month. #WeStandWithBubba https://t.co/Jhg3SPycGT— NASCAR (@NASCAR) July 6, 2020Richard Petty Motorsports co-owner Andrew Murstein also issued a statement defending Wallace.”I find it hard to believe that the President would send out such a misinformed tweet,” Murstein said (via Fox Sports’ Bob Pockrass). “Perhaps one of his staff did it without his knowledge or he doesn’t know the facts. After all of the information that has come out regarding the noose incident, such a late, misinformed and factually incorrect statement seems completely unwarranted, especially after the photo came out.”I could of course go on and on, but a picture is worth a thousand words. Bubba has reacted in a truthful, professional, level headed and positive manner. The NASCAR community, and those in the know all stand by him.” Has @BubbaWallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX? That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 6, 2020MORE: The complete facts from the Bubba Wallace noose situationBoth the FBI and NASCAR confirmed in separate statements that there was a noose in Wallace’s garage stall ahead of the Geico 500, though the investigation concluded that the noose had been in place since at least last fall and was not targeting Wallace. A crew member of the No. 43 team first saw the noose and reported it, not Wallace, and NASCAR made it clear Wallace and his team had “nothing to do with this.”In addition to those factual inaccuracies, Trump also incorrectly claimed that NASCAR TV ratings had plummeted after the noose incident and NASCAR’s ban of the Confederate flag when they have been up since the sport returned following a brief hiatus.Wallace addressed the tweet, saying, “All the haters are doing is elevating your voice and platform to much greater heights.”His full statement:”Your words and actions will always be held to a higher standard than others. You have to be prepared for that. You don’t learn these things in school. You learn them from trials and tribulations, the ups and downs this crazy world provides. You will always have people testing you. Seeing if they can knock you off your pedestal. I encourage you to keep your head held high and walk proudly on the path you have chosen. Never let anybody tell you [that you] can’t do something! God put us all here for a reason. Find that reason and be proud of it and work your tails off every day towards it! All the haters are doing is elevating your voice and platform to much greater heights!”Last thing, always deal with the hate being thrown at you with LOVE! Love over hate every day. Love should come naturally as people are TAUGHT to hate.”Even when it’s HATE from the POTUS.”Love wins.”NASCAR reaffirmed its support for Wallace on Twitter and issued its own statement Monday afternoon.”We are proud to have Bubba Wallace in the NASCAR family and we commend his courage and leadership,” the statement read. “NASCAR continues to stand tall with Bubba, our competitors and everyone who makes our sport welcoming and inclusive for all racing fans.”
