Already a number of bills that we have been monitoring have seen activity in their respective committees.The Ohio Senate Agriculture Committee held first hearing on multi-parcel auction bill. State senators heard testimony on House Bill 480 on Nov. 13. The bill would authorize the Ohio Department of Agriculture to regulate multi-parcel auctions, which are currently not specifically addressed in the Ohio Revised Code. The bill also defines “multi-parcel auction,” saying such an auction is one involving real or personal property in which multiple parcels or lots are offered for sale in part or in whole. The bill would also establish certain advertising requirements. The bill’s primary sponsor, Representative Brian Hill of Zanesville, says that he introduced the bill in an effort to recognize by statute what auctioneers are already doing, and to do so without interrupting the industry. The bill passed the Ohio House of Representatives 93-0 in June.

Not all hope is lost, the ad says, because at least there are still refugees that will cook discounted food for White people! Many people on Twitter reacted very negatively to the ad. This is my best explanation why it was offensive. Not everyone agrees – we’ve got a debate going in comments below which we invite you to participate in.The joke was intended to be absurd, but the absurdity presumed a lack of seriousness in the whole matter. It was an attempt at post-serious humor – but most people with common sense agree that the struggles of Tibet still deserve respect and seriousness. The joke is on anyone who really cares. It came across as the kind of out-of-touch humor that overprivileged, spiritually mean, advertising industry creatives (specifically, the kind that kids refer to as “douchebags”) would come up with. That’s one explanation why the commercial was offensive, but view it below and offer your own if you like. Another perspective: As Rabbi Eliyahu Fink said on Twitter tonight, “Amazing.

The Groupon ad was created by well-known advertising firm Crispin Porter & Bogusky, makers of the Subservient Chicken ad for Burger King, and others. There’s a line between “wacky” on one side and stupid on the other. Sometimes, in today’s cultural climate, it’s hard to tell one side from another. Sometimes it’s not so hard. The rise of non-traditional voices in the media, thanks to the proliferation of social media publishing tools (along with other factors), has caused some people to be confused about whether or not basic human decency remains important. E.g. “Anyone can be media now, so media can say anything!” Maybe they never really got it in the first place. Groupon ran a number of ads tonight and the website for the campaign includes calls to donate to charities related to the issues parodied. Groupon was born as a website called The Point, which let people vote on non-profit issues that needed attention – but has since become an email coupon service that some have said is now the fastest-growing business in history.

They won nine straight in 1963-64.A night shy of the five-year anniversary of Curry’s 54-point Madison Square Garden masterpiece, the Warriors showed how many weapons they have around him now, making 15 3-pointers and putting six players in double figures.The third quarter has been when the Warriors separate themselves from opponents, and this was the fifth time they outscored a team by 20 or more in the period.“I still don’t have an answer as to why the third quarter is what it is, like anything specific, beyond just the fact that we can wear teams down over the course of 48 minutes,” Curry said. And it might take 24, 26 minutes to really create that separation and gain that momentum, and we come out of the halftime with some juice, some energy and it’s winning time. So that’s my best explanation for it and hopefully it continues.”This onslaught started innocently enough, with Green banking in a 3-pointer.

COA member and former India captain Diana Edulji has brushed off the controversy surrounding Mithali Raj’s exclusion from the Indian side for the Women’s World T20 semi-final, saying team selection can’t be questioned and that the team just had a bad day in the Caribbean.Mithali was dropped for India’s eight-wicket defeat to England despite the former captain recovering from a knee injury that kept her out of the group-stage tie against eventual champions Australia.The team management’s decision kicked up a storm as fans and critics questioned the selection. Mithali’s manager Annisha Gupta slammed Harmanpreet, calling the skipper a “manipulative, lying cheat” before deleting her post on Twitter.”I think too much is being made out of it. The management (captain Harmanpreet Kaur, coach Ramesh Powar, vice captain Smriti Mandhana and selector Sudha Shah) made the decision of not changing a winning combination and that backfired. If India had won the game, I am sure nobody would have questioned their decision,” Edulji, a former Indian captain said.Also read: Will Mithali Raj retire from T20Is after World T20 fiasco in West Indies?”We can’t be questioning the team eleven. Another example is of Krunal Pandya, who was thrashed in the first T20 but bounced back strongly yesterday. These things happen in the game,” she said.In the two innings Mithali played in the tournament, she scored 51 and 56, against Ireland and Pakistan respectively.Also read: Ganguly relates to Mithali’s omission from World T20 semi-final: ‘Welcome to the group’Harmanpreet defended the decision to keep Mithali out of the eleven, saying “whatever we decided, we decided for the team”.advertisement”As I see it. It was just a bad day for India. The batting failed and when England were chasing, the dew made it tougher for the bowlers. The performance was unexpected, especially after the big win against Australia,” Edulji added.”I wish they had a bad game like that earlier in the competition and not in the all-important semifinal. The girls now have a New Zealand tour coming up, they must move on from this loss and work harder on their game.”No COA meeting planned yetEdulji also made it clear that no COA meeting has been planned yet with captain Harmanpreet and Mithali.Also read: Mithali Raj ‘terribly disappointed’ after World T20 semis axing, says personal coach”It was a selection matter. There is no need for the COA to intervene. If they want to have a word with us, then that can be looked at. We only step in when it is required like it was when Tushar Arothe stepped down,” she said.Arothe had to quit in July after he developed differences with the senior players over his training methods. Former India spinner Powar was appointed the full-time head coach in August and his term will end on November 30.
