Vote in the Great American Read

first_img Please enter your comment! How were the top 100 books chosen?PBS and the producers worked with the public opinion polling service “YouGov” to conduct a demographically and statistically representative survey asking Americans to name their most-loved novel. Approximately 7,200 people participated.How did you narrow that list to the top 100?The results were tallied and organized based on our selection criteria and overseen by an advisory panel of 13 literary industry professionals. The criteria for inclusion on the top 100 list were as follows:Each author was limited to one title on the list (to keep the list varied).Books published in series or featuring ongoing characters counted as one eligible entry on the list (e.g. the Harry Potter series or Lord of the Rings)to increase variety.Books could be from anywhere in the world as long as they were published in English.Only fiction could be included in the poll.Each advisory panel member was permitted to select one book for discussion and possible inclusion on the top 100 list from the longer list of survey results.What books are included on the list?The list contains a broad range of fictional titles, authors, time periods, countries, genres and subject matter. The list includes books from as far back as the 1600s and as recent as 2016. From beloved world literature to contemporary best sellers, many categories are represented: 20th-century American classics, thrillers, young adult novels, sci-fi/fantasy, adventure, historical fiction, romantic stories, and books that represent the human experience told from a diverse range of perspectives.Why are there only fiction books included? Why aren’t religious works included?THE GREAT AMERICAN READ is searching for the country’s best-loved novel. While we recognize the broad categories of books available, we chose to narrow our focus to works of fiction because it would be impossible to cover them all over the course of an eight-part series.How does the voting work?Voting will open online and on social media with the launch of the two-hour premiere episode and continue throughout the summer, leading up to the finale in October 2018. Over the summer, viewers can vote online and through hashtag voting via Facebook and Twitter. In the fall, viewers will also be able to cast their votes by using SMS and toll-free voting.To watch the series, go here. From pbs.orgTHE GREAT AMERICAN READ is an eight-part series that explores and celebrates the power of reading, told through the prism of America’s 100 best-loved novels (as chosen in a national survey).  It investigates how and why writers create their fictional worlds, how we as readers are affected by these stories, and what these 100 different books have to say about our diverse nation and our shared human experience.  The television series features entertaining and informative documentary segments, with compelling testimonials from celebrities, authors, notable Americans and book lovers across the country. It is comprised of a two-hour launch episode in which the list of 100 books is revealed, five one-hour theme episodes that examine concepts common to groups of books on the list, and a finale, in which the results are announced of a nationwide vote to choose America’s best-loved book.The series is the centerpiece of an ambitious multi-platform digital, educational and community outreach campaign, designed to get the country reading and passionately talking about books.Frequently Asked Questions LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Gov.

BOOTS REVIEW: Canterbury’s new range

first_imgTuesday Aug 22, 2017 BOOTS REVIEW: Canterbury’s new range Last week we gave away a pair of the all new Canterbury range of boots that features four different styles. There was a fair bit of interest, so here is a quick overview and review of what each boot is like and who it will be most suited to. Canterbury were kind enough to send us some pairs of boots to try out, so here are the first opinions on this exciting new range that have been tailor-made for specific positional needs.The Phoenix 2.0 Elite is a beautiful looking boot that is extremely comfortable but has a rigid feel to it, making it ideal for loose forwards who want a traditional fit but also need that extra speed in their game.The exterior has be made with great attention to detail and as with all of these boots, looks ideal for wet-weather rugby.The Speed 2.0 Elite is the lightest boot Canterbury has ever made, making it ideal for pacey backs whose priority is speed and stepping. It’s thin exterior includes a unique, barely-there tongue, streamlining the design and no doubt contributing to it’s light feel.It has great grip, with just six main metal studs around seven plastic. The boot moulds to your foot, giving one a sense of reaching full potential with nothing holding you back. The design is bright yellow/green which some may not like, but is commonplace these days.The third boot we tried is the Stampede 2.0 Club, a tight forwards boot that provides great comfort and durability, ideal for generating power. It has a wider fit so is perfect for players with broader feet.This is also the most traditional looking of the four new boots, and offers great foot protection, eg: for close-quarter breakdown work and scrumming.It’s difficult to pick a favourite as they are all suited to different needs, so decide what your requirements are, and you’ll find the perfect boot for you. All versions are now available on the Canterbury website.More details, imagery and video belowPhoenix 2.0 EliteThe Phoenix 2.0 Elite (£90, Club at £55) features explosive power and combines the characteristics of a power player with subtle agility. The use of a hybrid upper construction provides the lightweight performance needed by back row and loose forwards, ensuring you are always first to the breakdown.This remastered version has improved forefoot dimensions and low profile collar to ensure the optimum rugby fit, and has a hybrid upper construction for lightweight performance and comfort. The 8 stud hybrid out-sole ensures traction in all conditions.Speed 2.0 EliteReactive Agility. The Speed 2.0 Elite (Elite at £90 and Club at £60) offers zero distraction and maximum performance from first wear right through the full 80. It’s Canterbury’s lightest boot to date, providing the ultimate in on-field performance and helping to make you uncatchable.Suede-feel lining prevents foot movement and provides enhanced comfort. Heel raise provides dynamic foot positioning and reduces lower limb strain. The new 6-stud outsole is engineered to ensure 360 degree traction for reactive agility.Stampede 2.0Unbreakable Force. The Stampede 2.0 (£55) is built for powerful tight-five players. It boasts a reinforced upper and a wider fit for comfort as well as a hybrid outsole that provides the traction that you need when driving the opposition back.Reinforced upper with cushioning for durability and performance. Engineered on Canterbury’s new wide fit Powerlast. The 8-stud hybrid out-sole ensures traction in all conditions.Control 2.0 Ruthless Precision. The Control 2.0 (£60) is built for superior touch and finesse, helping you to find your target every time, whether you’re kicking from hand or from the tee.It boasts an improved foot shape and low profile collar for improved touch and fit. Offset lacing for unrivalled control and comfort. Improved foot shaping and low profile collar ensure improved touch and fit. New 6 stud outsole provides traction on soft ground.All boots are only suitable for natural grass surfaces and designed for enhanced traction and acceleration.#CommittedToTheGame | Define Your Style All styles are now available on the Canterbury website www.canterbury.comADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Under this concept, the volume was projected so that the orientations would enhance the view and at the same time capture the greatest amount of daylight.Save this picture!© Sofía MezzanoCorrugated zinc is the predominant material, not only for its strength and durability, but because it seeks to camouflage the house within its environment, this material in combination with a wooden coating of Cypress give the appropriate character to the exterior facade.

ECISD honors ‘Skipper’ Hunt

first_img WhatsApp Pinterest ECISD honors ‘Skipper’ Hunt Ector County Independent School District Police’s John Wayne Skipper Hunt has been selected as the 2020 officer of the year. Hunt lives in San Angelo and travels to Odessa to work part time with ECISD police. Hunt spent 35 years with Department of Public Safety before coming to ECISD. With a full career at the Texas Department of Public Safety behind him, John Wayne “Skipper” Hunt decided he didn’t want to just fade off into the sunset so he took on relief officer duties with the Ector County ISD Police Department. Hunt recently won the Police Officer of the Year Award from the district. “To be honest, it was special just to be nominated for it and it was really special when the coworkers awarded me with that honor,” Hunt said. He is the ECISD Police Department’s relief officer. “I pretty much work when their officers are off, which is weekends, their school holidays, Christmas, Thanksgiving, spring break, etc.,” Hunt said. He doesn’t mind doing it. “I’ve done it so long it’s kind of … a win-win for both of us. Their officers get to be off and I get to continue working and make some extra money,” Hunt said. ECISD Police Chief Todd Hiner said he has worked with Hunt for 24 years. “He’s been here longer than anyone else,” Hiner said. “He is one of the most dedicated and loyal people and loyal officers I’ve ever met. He brings a multitude of experience. He had previously worked for the DPS and was a lieutenant with the DPS, so he brings a lot of experience and a lot of hard work behind this, so we just appreciate him. I couldn’t think of anyone that deserves it more than him.” A San Angelo native, Hunt started college at Texas Tech University playing tennis. He ended up having to transfer to Central Texas College in Killeen. From there, he was recruited by a coach from what was called the University of Southwestern Louisiana in Lafayette. “I finished my final three years of college there,” Hunt said. He earned a bachelor’s degree in education and an associate degree in criminal justice. When he was in college, his brother Joe was a highway patrolman in Odessa. Joe Hunt retired from DPS in 1998 and. At the time, he was a Texas Ranger stationed in San Angelo. In 2000, Joe Hunt was elected Tom Green County Sheriff. He was reelected in 2004 and 2008. Due to health reasons, he retired in 2010 from his position as sheriff and passed away on Oct. 1, 2013, Skipper Hunt said in a text message. “And on my holidays like Thanksgiving … I would come ride with him and developed an interest in the job. My degree is in education. I started out (thinking) I wanted to be a coach. It’s just the time came and I decided right out of college when I graduated to go to the DPS academy and never looked back,” Hunt said. He added that riding with his brother got him thinking about going into law enforcement. “I saw what he did and it just kind of grew on me. I wanted to do the same thing,” Hunt said. Hunt was one month shy of 35 years with the Highway Patrol. His first duty station was in McCamey where he stayed for a year and a half. Hunt’s brother was promoted to Texas Ranger and went to Lubbock, so Hunt put in a transfer to Odessa and came to town in 1977. “My DPS career was McCamey, Odessa. I made sergeant. I went to Fort Stockton for six years and then I promoted again to lieutenant. There was a vacancy in San Angelo, which happened to be my home town so I put in to transfer there and that’s where I finished my career,” Hunt said. He added that his entire law enforcement career was with DPS. Hunt has worked part time for the ECISD Police Department since 1988. “… I approached the chief, at the time, of the school district here and asked if I could continue on a part-time basis. He agreed to that, so that’s what I’ve been doing since I retired in 2010,” Hunt said. The ECISD police chief at the time was Brian Moersch. Asked about his nickname of Skipper, he said he’s had it since he was young. “Rumor has it, there were some truancy issues when I was younger that got me that name,” Hunt said. Hunt has been married twice. His second wife, Linda, died of breast cancer in 2012. Between them, they had five children. Asked whether retirement is on the horizon, Hunt said not quite yet. “I think there is light at the end of the tunnel, but right now I still enjoy what I do and I’m able to do to it. I still consider it to be a win-win for the school district and for myself, but I do not have a time table on when I’m going to not do it anymore,” Hunt said. He said the ECISD Police Department is a “perfect fit” for him. “I’m just blessed to work around a bunch of guys that I’ve worked around for a long time. Most of the employees of the school district have careers from other agencies such as the sheriff’s office or OPD (the Odessa Police Department) and I fall in that category. A lot of the officers here I’ve known for a long time and worked well with them when I was working with DPS and work well with them now,” he added.
