We must all work together to stand up for what is right and protect individuals in our communities from discrimination.“Our commonwealth – especially our shared interests of better communities and opportunities for our families – is stronger when we are united and treat each other as equals. We must continue to work to combat discrimination, reject both avert and systemic racism, and bring fairness to our institutions at all levels.”“The commonwealth has strengthened anti-discrimination policies for state employees, visitors to state buildings, and all contractors that do business with the commonwealth. However, we must ensure all commonwealth employers and places of public accommodation are ensuring no one is the subject of discrimination and violators must be held accountable.“We urge business managers and owners to reflect upon the treatment of individuals who seek to patronize your businesses. Businesses are considered places of public accommodations and are subject to the anti-discrimination provisions of the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act (PHRA).”The Pennsylvania Human Relations Act guarantees that individuals have the right to obtain all the accommodations, advantages, facilities and privileges of any public accommodation. If you feel a place of public accommodation has treated you differently because of your race, color, sex or any other protected class status, please visit our website: www.phrc.pa.gov or call your regional office for more information on filing a complaint.

Time capsule house to be given new lease on life

This rundown house at Woodend was recently purchased by Apprenticeships Queensland, and will be given a full reno in the new year. SuppliedA HOUSE described as a “time capsule” will be renovated by school-aged apprentices — the third such project undertaken by Aprenticeships Queensland.The company, which employs apprentices and trainees and provides on-the-job experience, recently bought 10 Williams St East in Woodend, with students to start work on it early next year. And the kitchen after the transformation. The bathroom before … The Hill Street project before the renovation … Even the wash basin remained. Supplied And the pedal-power Singer sewing machine. Supplied.Another renovation project at Herbert St in Sadlier’s Cross is nearing completion. It was bought for $285,000 in 2017, and the young apprentices have been working alongside experienced tradies to completely renovate the 1925-era house.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus16 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market16 hours agoThe first project house — 12 Hill St, North Ipswich — was bought for $275,000 and sold a year later for $447,500, according to property records.

Inside the Woodend house is a treasure trove of old world furniture. Supplied … and after the renovation. But it is inside that the changes are more dramatic.Apprentice Queensland CEO Paul Hilberg said their most recent house acquisition at Woodend offered a snapshot of the past.He said the house was full of old world furniture, and even had original family photographs still on the walls. “There was a pedal-powered Singer sewing machine, the old wash basin at the end of the bed, it was like a treasure trove and many of the students would never have seen some of these items,” he said. “The house, we are told, is about 100-plus years old, and we were also told it had been in the same family that entire time.“When time comes to renovate it, we will want to maintain the heritage of the house and update it.” read more

Koulibaly own goal hands Juventus dramatic win to ruin Napoli comeback

Napoli refused to give up as Kostas Manolas and Hirving Lozano scored within two minutes of each other before Giovanni Di Lorenzo completed a stunning comeback. But Koulibaly volleyed a free kick into his own net in stoppage time to hand Juve an early advantage in the Serie A title race.

But they remain determined to complete the 2019-20 season. Leading figures from the 20 clubs, including Tony Bloom and Paul Barber, representing Albion, on Friday met via video link to discuss the next step in the face of the coronavirus epidemic. They had, notionally at least, been due to return to playing the end of this moth. A Premier League statement read: “It was acknowledged that the Premier League will not resume at the beginning of May – and that the 2019-20 season will only return when it is safe and appropriate to do so. “The restart date is under constant review with all stakeholders, as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic develops and we work together through this very challenging time. “The Premier League is working closely with the whole of professional football in this country, as well as with the Government, public agencies and other relevant stakeholders to ensure the game achieves a collaborative solution. “With this, there is a combined objective for all remaining domestic league and cup matches to be played, enabling us to maintain the integrity of each competition. “However, any return to play will only be with the full support of Government and when medical guidance allows.”Tags: CoronavirusCOVID-19Premier Leaguelast_img read more

Pochettino happy with Vertonghen

first_img Vertonghen came off the bench at the Etihad Stadium after Fazio was sent off in Spurs’ latest heavy defeat to City. Pochettino says the players have responded well to that 4-1 loss but is well aware a winning response is needed in Thursday’s Europa League clash against Asteras Tripolis. The Greek side arrive in north London as a relatively-unknown quantity but Spurs’ coaching staff have done their homework on the current Group C leaders. “I have a lot of information about Asteras,” Pochettino said. “It is a very good team, a lot of Argentine players, seven, and I believe that they have a very good philosophy. “They have very good players and had very good results against Partizan and Besiktas. “They are a very dynamic team, play well, offensive, brave and we expect a very tough game.” The 27-year-old had been one of the first names on the team sheet ever since arriving from Ajax in 2012, yet has found it hard to pin down a regular first-team berth this term. Vertonghen’s place on the bench in Saturday’s 4-1 defeat at Manchester City reignited rumours that all may not be well between the defender and Pochettino – something both have downplayed in recent weeks. Pochettino attempted to extinguish that speculation once again on Wednesday, saying: “Jan is an important player for Tottenham and for us. “But a lot of rumours and information and different situations, and for me it’s easy because I don’t read it. Never. “I know the players are sometimes affected by comment or rumours and they call me about the rumours but Jan is a very important player for Tottenham and for me. “After the Arsenal and Southampton games, we had the international break. Younes Kaboul and Federico Fazio worked very hard here [during that] and are fresh. I gave them the opportunity to play but I haven’t changed my view on Jan. For me, he is a very good player and he is a key player for us.” Vertonghen recently revealed talks over a new, long-term contract had come to an end, although Pochettino denied that had upset the defender, so too the fact he was overlooked for the captaincy. “I never hear from Jan that he wants to leave or change something,” the former Argentina defender said. “After it is impossible to hear or to trust in other people around him because for me it is important when we have a chat inside my office that never Jan told me he wants to leave the club. “I have trust in my player and Jan never told me about that. He is happy at Tottenham. Maybe sometimes he wants to play more but my decision is to take a decision. He is happy and I’m happy with him.” Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino has rejected talk of an issue with Jan Vertonghen, insisting the Belgium defender remains happy at White Hart Lane.
