Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James’ shoes are emblazoned with “EQUALITY” on both heels during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Washington Wizards, Sunday, Dec. 17, 2017, in Washington. (AP Photo/Nick Wass)WASHINGTON (AP) LeBron James made a statement during an NBA game with his shoes one black, one white, with the word “equality” in capital gold letters on the back of each.Then, after the game, James made a statement about President Donald Trump, saying: “This is a beautiful country and we’re never going to let one person dictate how beautiful and how powerful we are.”The four time NBA MVP was asked about his choice of footwear for the first half of his Cleveland Cavaliers’ 106 99 victory over the Washington Wizards on Sunday night at an arena about a mile from the White House.”Obviously, we know where we are right now,” James began. “And we know who’s at the helm here.”He continued, speaking about the importance of “having equal rights and being able to stand for something and speak for something and keeping the conversation going.”James then referred to his past discussions of Trump, saying: “Obviously, I’ve been . very outspoken and well spoken about the situation that’s going on at the helm here. . Equality is all about understanding our rights, understanding what we stand for and how powerful we are as men and as women, black or white or Hispanic. It doesn’t matter your race.”Earlier this year, James called Trump “a bum” on Twitter and also said at Cleveland’s preseason media day: “He doesn’t understand how many kids, no matter the race, look up to the president of the United State for guidance, for leadership, for words of encouragement. He doesn’t understand that, and that’s what makes me more sick than anything.”Then, for Cleveland’s first regular season game, James donned a pair of black sneakers with the “equality” message. But this was the first time James chose to wear one white and one black shoe.At halftime Sunday, he changed into other sneakers. James finished the game with 20 points, 15 assists and 12 rebounds.

marco polo venice airport Lawrence High students cool about uniforms

company logo polo shirts Lawrence High students cool about uniforms

For four months now, students at Lawrence High School have had to abide by a new uniform policy requiring them to wear certain colored polo shirts, khaki pants, and black shoes.

And for the most part, Linette Rodriguez has been cool with that. After all, the policy has helped make it easier for her to get dressed in the morning.

“I think they’re going overboard,” said Rodriguez, who wore brown Timberland boots to school one day and quickly found out that school officials were serious: She got detention. “Why can’t we wear some [other colored] Pumas or Tims?”

Since the start of the last academic year, Lawrence High has been divided into six distinct “schools” business management and finance; health and human services; humanities and leadership development; international; math, science, and technology; and performing and fine arts each with its own wing of the sprawling campus, classes, activities, and even graduation ceremony.

The new dress code requires students to wear polos the color of their school year round. And no matter what their school colors are, they must wear all black shoes.

That has some students upset because they can’t wear matching shoes with their colored polos, or even black shoes with a stylish, pink Nike swoosh or blue Puma logo. Students say wearing different shoes is the one way they can express their individuality in a place full of uniforms.

“They want to be able to show a little bit of themselves,” said senior Katherine Ramirez, 17. “They don’t want to be all the same.”

Superintendent of Schools Wilfredo T. Laboy said, however, that getting students used to wearing uniforms including black shoes is preparing them for a professional environment in which they can’t just walk into the workplace wearing bright pink Nikes.

“There’s been some push back, but we’re sticking to our policy,” he said. “It’s something the students have to learn. Every work environment has a dress code. This is ours.”

Laboy said the different color uniforms not only help create identities for the new schools, but also help faculty and staff keep track of the 3,000 or so students in the recently completed $110 million campus. And the black shoes are key, he said, because it prevents students from wearing the colors affiliated with gangs in the area.

So far, campus headmaster Thomas Sharkey said, school officials have had “very few” problems with students not wearing the proper polos and khakis. But he said he occasionally comes across a student trying to sneak in wearing nonconforming shoes.

“We’re being very strict,” Sharkey said.

To make sure students don’t drift off policy, Laboy recently e mailed staff members reminding them to be diligent in the hallways and to make sure students are sticking to the rules, from head to toe.

Rodriguez, a senior in the health and human services school, said she understands the concept of trying to get students thinking about dressing professionally. But she said high school students are still kids and there’s nothing wrong with allowing youngsters to sport “harmless, cute” shoes.

“We’re still high school students. We’re not in college yet,” she said. “They try to say they are preparing us, but keeping us in lockdown isn’t preparing us.”

Rodriguez said that if the policy were changed to allow for different types of shoes, she would head to Foot Locker to get some Pumas.

To be sure, the resistance by students has resulted in a slight change to the policy.

Led by Ramirez, students persuaded School Committee members and school officials two months ago to allow all black sneakers. Previously, students could wear only black dress shoes or black boots.

School Committee member Greg Morris, the sponsor of the uniform policy who recently lost his bid for reelection, said the accommodation showed that the district is still tweaking its dress code and is listening to students’ concerns.

“This is a collaborative effort between parents, students, and community members,” he said.

“We understand that some kids want to express their own styles. As long as it’s not disruptive, I don’t have a problem with it.”

Before the policy was even implemented, Morris noted, the School Committee eased the rules to let students wear different shades of their required colors to allow them to “express themselves.”

newborn polo clothes Lane College president wash feet at MLK service

polo t shirts Lane College president wash feet at MLK service

There were wet eyes Sunday morning at Northside Assembly of God, but not because of a divine song or a sanctified man’s testimony.

It came instead from two men, Lane College President Logan Hampton, a former pastor, and Northside Pastor Randy Carter washing and drying each other’s feet on the platform of the church.

Both men, one black and one white, sat on chairs, untied their shoes and slipped off their socks before putting them in a bowl while the other poured water over them.

The act, originally performed by Jesus for his disciples the night before he was killed, was to show each man being a servant, and it occurred on Reconciliation Sunday as Northside pauses every year to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.’s life.

As Carter poured water over Hampton’s feet, he apologized for generations of mistreatment due to the differences in the color of their skin.

“That passage, if there’s’ one biblical passage that I want to mark my life, it hasn’t always marked my life, but it’s what I want, it’s that passage,” he said to The Jackson Sun. “Jesus is hours away from death and what’s his final act? To wash peoples’ feet. And that is a servant’s heart.”

Both Hampton and Carter were adamant that Jesus’ lesson wasn’t something that should be read and forgotten. It must influence our daily lives in Jackson,
newborn polo clothes Lane College president wash feet at MLK service
Carter said.

There are plenty of issues in Jackson that need to be fixed, including races issues, and it is the church’s job to address them, Carter said.

“We can do like the disciples and not say anything,” he said in his sermon. “We can act like the situation doesn’t exist. Or we can do like Jesus and get up and take a towel.”

Hampton said that taking up the towel in Jackson would look like offering opportunity to strangers, particularly those who participate in illegal acts across the city.

He said it could also be applied to the churches across the city and them not having a distinction between “black churches” and “white churches.”

“You’ve got to be willing to do what the others aren’t, that’s what Jesus did,” Carter said. “You’ve just got to start. It takes an action.

“It’s turning good intentions into actions,” he continued. “I think many of us want to do something, but we’re overwhelmed by the complexity of the problem so we don’t do anything. That was a simple act for Jesus, but it’s still speaking 2,000 years later.”

Both men encouraged understanding between people they don’t understand.

As the service ended, Carter invited all guests to partake in communion, but to take it with someone that had different color of skin than themselves.

Calvin Walker is a Lane College student and he sang in Lane’s choir that performed Sunday morning.

Walker said that race is still an issue in Jackson, but services like Sundays show what the city is capable of.

“I think this is where we’re going,” Walker said. “In today’s society and generation we’re not moving backward, we’re moving forward. And in order for us to move forward we’ve all got to come together as one.

uop water polo Let me tell you what forced marriage in America looks like

polo park winnipeg Let me tell you what forced marriage in America looks like

For me, in the insular ultra Orthodox Jewish community in New York City where I was raised, it meant being groomed from when I was a toddler to become a wife and a mother. It meant receiving a limited education that focused on religious studies and homemaker duties.

It meant understanding my value as a girl. The men in that community make a blessing every morning thanking god for not making them a non Jew. Or a slave. Or a woman.

It meant I had no choice about whether to marry (that was a definite yes) or when to marry (that was going to happen as soon as possible after I finished grade 12).

It meant I was told I had the choice of whom to marry but the so called was limited to the potential matches the matchmaker brought to my family. It meant going on a limited number of so called with my match, during which we were never allowed to be alone together or to have any physical contact. It meant I had a matter of hours, over a period of a few weeks, to decide yes or no.

It meant being terrified to say no.

It meant enduring a humiliating (and, I later learned, entirely unreliable) physical exam to confirm my virginity.

I went along with my marriage at age 19 willingly, even happily. I walked down the aisle to my execution wearing a big smile and what was perhaps the world ugliest gown.

Let me tell you what discovering that your new husband is violent looks like.

For me, it meant cowering in terrified silence while he punched his fist through the wall for the first time, in a blind rage, one week after our wedding. While he first threatened to kill me, only days later.

Let me tell you what being forced to stay in an abusive arranged marriage in America looks like.

I had no reproductive rights .

Let me tell you what betrayal looks like. My family refused to take me back

I was trapped in my marriage for 15 years before I managed to escape with my two daughters. And when I did, my family shunned me. My parents and siblings declared me dead.

Let me tell you what life after death looks like. It terrifying but liberating. to escape forced marriages.

Through Unchained I helped hundreds of women and girls, from myriad cultures and religions, to resist or flee coerced marriages. The girls have been as young as 14 and that how I came to realize America has a significant child marriage problem.

Let me tell you what child marriage in America looks like. states. Laws in 25 states do not specify any minimum age for marriage.

However, before children become adults, which is usually at 18, they are nearly powerless to protect themselves from an impending forced marriage or to escape from an unhappy or abusive marriage. Most of the girls who reach out to Unchained to beg for help end up trying to kill themselves when they learn of their limited options.

Child marriage also devastates girls health, education and economic opportunities and greatly increases their risk of being beaten by their spouse.

Unchained groundbreaking research showed an estimated quarter million children as young as 10 were married in America between 2000 and 2010. Overwhelmingly, they were girls wed to adult men.

Let me tell you what a simple solution looks like. We at Unchained now lead a growing national movement to end child marriage in America. We working to pass commonsense legislation in all 50 states to eliminate the legal loopholes that allow marriage before adulthood.

So far officials in state after state have rejected the legislation, many of them insisting a teenage girl who gets pregnant has no choice but to marry even if she was raped. But we keep pushing. Strong legislation is pending in three states and about to be reintroduced in two others.

designer polos Lawyer with Texas Panhandle ties brings religious texts to the public

water polo store Lawyer with Texas Panhandle ties brings religious texts to the public

Lewis’ “Narnia” books and a piece of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

It takes just one Texan: Mark Lanier.

“I wanted to be a preacher,” said the graduate of Lubbock’s Mackenzie Junior High and Coronado High School, head of the Lanier Law Firm and creator of the Lanier Theological Library next to his house in northwest Houston.

But after earning a degree in biblical languages at David Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn., in 1981, Lanier took the advice of a Lubbock preacher that “I should be a lawyer and still teach or preach on the side, and then I could always do it because I wanted to and not because I have to.”

He’s handled his law career and his spiritual work in a big way.

A judge reduced that $9 billion courtroom verdict against the Takeda and Eli Lilly drug firms substantially, but it’s likely to remain in the many millions. That 2014 case is only one of many Lanier and his firm have won since his first big one, a $473 million verdict in 1993 for a small oil company over a big oil firm. One of his firm’s attorneys who has contributed to the success is former Amarillo resident Kevin Parker, whose daughter Amy has worked on the library website.

“I still practice law so I can preach and teach without charging for it,” Lanier said. “It’s just turned out to be a remunerative enough career that I can also build libraries.”

Lanier is 54, but could pass for 34. Relaxing in his library office in an upholstered wingback chair, the multimillionaire appeared more at home in a red Lacoste polo shirt, jeans and Toms shoes with no socks than in his trial lawyer suit and tie. Draped over the back of the chair was an afghan his grandmother had knitted. He said the library resulted from his need for a place to research lessons for his weekly Sunday school class at Champion Forest Baptist Church. He had floated the idea with his wife, Becky, also an attorney and a Lubbock native.

He recalled going to his pastor and saying, “I can’t talk my wife into this. If I build this, you’d use it, wouldn’t you? And he says, ‘Sure, I think a lot of people would.'”

So in 2010, the research facility opened, a 17,000 square foot building based on architectural features at Oxford University.

To design the stone and wood library, Lanier started by calling his son, then teaching at the 900 year old British institution, on a Tuesday and asking if he could fly over for a Friday Oxford tour. “I want you to figure out the seven prettiest libraries in Oxford, and I need to see them,” he told his son. “So he shows me the libraries. I’ve got pictures of him standing on a chair holding tape measures.”

Lanier flew back Saturday so he could prepare for his Houston Sunday school class. “We started building on Monday,” he recalled.

“We’ve got 17 seminaries and grad schools that use this as a principal research library,” he said.

The library has about 85,000 books and 20,000 journals. Lewis, artwork from Lewis’ “Narnia” book series, two copies of the original 1611 King James Bible and a rare fragment of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

“It’s the oldest copy of Amos in the world today,” Lanier said. “It dates from the time of Christ. I’d like to say I’ve got ‘Hear O Israel, the Lord your God, the Lord is one,’ you know, the Shema out of Deuteronomy. No, mine is, ‘Your wife will be a prostitute in the city and your sons and daughters will fall by the sword.’ But hey, it’s in the Bible.”

Similar fragments have sold for up to $1.5 million.

Lanier’s property also includes the Stone Chapel, a 275 seat building with 2 foot thick walls and colorful ceiling art reminiscent of the Sistine Chapel. in Cappadocia, modern day Turkey. A miniature train circles part of the 35 acres, and just outside the library are a full size copy of TARDIS, the police box in which Doctor Who travels in the British TV science fiction series, made from specs from the show, plus a killer robot replica.

For two decades, Lanier has hosted Christmas parties with live entertainment by celebrities from Bon Jovi to Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. He appeared in the film “Puncture,” starring Chris Evans and based on one of his court victories. He gets Christian performer Phil Keaggy to do music for his Sunday school presentations. He’s on first name terms with the host of Fox Business’ “Varney Co.”

The Texas Tech law school includes the Mark and Becky Lanier Professional Development Center thanks to a $6 million donation.

But his first loves are his family and faith. He spends hours on his Sunday class, which started with a focus on biblical literacy and has covered church history and Old and New Testament surveys.

In 2014, he published “Christianity on Trial: A Lawyer Examines the Christian Faith,” and he’s working on more books, including one tentatively called “Atheism on Trial” and a comparison of the teachings of Paul in light of modern science and knowledge.

He’s spent a year putting together a sensible reorganization of the Bible.

“You read through the Bible in a year, you don’t even meet Jesus until mid October,” he explained.

Lanier’s idea is to focus on the books of John, Acts and Revelation and to include footnotes that guide the reader to the rest of scripture that supports those writings. He hopes to publish the reordered scripture in 2017.

It isn’t hard to find Olivier Dauga in a crowd. Amid the suit coats, ties, and polo shirts, he’s the dude with the wild shirt, bluejeans, colorful glasses and a pair of shoes that leaves one speechless. Modest, he’s not. Self confident and knowledgeable, he is.

Talk about a shoe fetish. Dauga owns so many 62 pair, he admits he reserves one suitcase just for them when he travels.

When he’s not shopping for shoes, Dauga is advising about 20 French clients how to make wine. As a consultant, he often comes to a failing operation, analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of the terroir and puts the producer on track with new wines. These wines are usually reasonably priced and satisfy wine enthusiasts with a sense of adventure. A former rugby player, Dauga is competitive and usually gets his way or loses a client.

His company has been known as Val d’Orbieu, but the day we tasted his wines, it was announced that he had merged with a competitor and the company would be called Vinadeis. Collectively, they manage 2,000 wine growers in Bordeaux, Languedoc Roussillon, Corbieres, Minervois and other regions of southern France.

As mentioned in last week’s column, the Portuguese are most well known for their production of high quality red and white Port dessert wines. However, the Portuguese have produced red, white and ros table wines for centuries.

Most of wines were mediocre until the mid 1990s when an infusion of.

As a lot, they are well balanced and not overly extracted with moderate alcohol levels and little oak flavors.

Here are several red wines we liked in the tasting:

Chateau de Jonquieres Cuvee Eole 2012. ($22). A blend of grenace and syrah, this wine from Corbieres has rich, extracted dark berry fruit flavors, a good dose of licorice and sweet tannins.

Domaine Cazelles Verdier Les Pierres Qui Chantent 2013 ($22). This had very broad flavors from a Minervois blend of syrah,

Grenache, mourvedre and carignan. It had ripe notes of blackberry and plum fruit with a hint of spice and easy tannins.

Pinot grigios are popular because of their abundant fruit flavors and a ripe profile that can include some residual sugar. Often dominated by a peach or apricot character, these wines make refreshing aperitifs and can be matched with grilled chicken, salads, fruit and a variety of other simple.

(Tom Marquardt and Patrick Darr)

Chateau Les Combes Merlot 2012 ($35). This merlot comes from the Saint Emilion region of Bordeaux. Made entirely from merlot, the full bodied wine explodes with beautiful black fruit flavors and hints of chocolate and sweet vanillin oak.

Chateau Vieille Dynastie LaLande de Pomerol 2012 ($38). This satellite region offers some of the best deals in Bordeaux, although sometimes it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack. We liked this blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. There are serious tannins, but generous flavors, herbal notes and good balance.

Wine picks:

J. Lohr Estates Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 ($35). This reasonably priced, effusive cab has extracted and ripe plum flavors with a dose of dark chocolate and a velvet texture. It is juicy and new World in style.

Tascante Buonora 2013 ($20). We loved this expressive and unique Sicilian wine made with carricante grapes. It’s bright acidity, floral nose and clean, mineral and citrus notes make it a great match for seafood.

Fulcrum Landy Vineyard Petite Sirah 2012 ($45). The producer of some terrific Anderson Valley pinot noirs has applied his talents to the debut vintage of a Russian River Valley petite sirah. Not always appreciated because of its tannic nature, petite sirah is a serious wine. In Fulcrum’s hands, it’s also a friendly petite sirah with varietal blackberry flavors and a hint of licorice.

Franciscan Estate Cuvee Sauvage 2013 ($40). We have raved about this unique chardonnay year after year. Using wild yeasts (“sauvage”), a winemaker never knows what he’ll get. But in this case the winemaker manages to get a rich, expressive wine with lemon and apple notes with toasty oak.

Robert Mondavi Fume Blanc 2013 ($40). Mondavi shows that sauvignon blanc doesn’t have to be a simple, insipid white wine. Its fume blanc, blended with 11 percent semillon, is a contrast between crisp acidity and silkiness very nice.

Rodney Strong Vineyards Charlotte’s Home Sauvignon Blanc 2014 ($17). Aromatic and tasty, this northern Sonoma sauvignon blanc has copious peach and pineapple flavors.

Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc 2014 ($25). The only white wine in the Cliff Lede portfolio, this sauvignon blanc is worthy of the money. With an expressive, floral nose, it maintains a balance of opulent citrus and grapefruit flavors with crisp acidity. A great summer aperitif or a good match to citrus based dishes.

Raptor Ridge Willamette Valley Pinot Gris 2014 ($20). Richly textured, this Oregon pinot gris has oodles of pear and peach flavors with a hint of lime and mineral.

Murphy Goode Snake Eyes Zinfandel 2012 ($35). You won’t find a more juicy zinfandel to accompany those smoked ribs or grilled hamburgers. Perfect for the grilling season because of the jammy flavors, this zinfandel is packed with lively raspberry, blackberry fruit.
