Local student creates awareness through Disability Day

first_imgDouglas does not enjoy being stared at and she would rather people talk directly to her. After the conference, she decided she needed to find a way to communicate with her peers how life is for her. That was the start for Disability Awareness District Night 2018.With Douglas’s success with opening a line of communication with her peers, this year she decided she was going to open up her event to be inclusive to other types of disabilities.Disability Day 2019 will take place at Bert Bowes on Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019 and then Thursday, January 24th at Taylor Elementary. These events are geared toward the student body, by setting up interactive stations for students to participate. Participants will hopefully experience a shift in their perspective as the experiences trying to navigate the stations are designed to inspire and motivate students.One of the stations set up at the event is to simulate what it would be like to have ADHD. By getting the participant to wear headphones, they need to complete a challenge on a computer while being distracted. Another station is completing an obstacle course while in a wheelchair and another that tests sight impairment is a series of goggles that have varying degrees of visibility.Douglas would like Disability Day to continue to grow into the future, it is important for Douglas to advocate for those that might not have the voice to do so for themselves. This is an example that you are not too young to make a difference.To view, the FB Page CLICK HERE FORT ST. JOHN – Grade 10 ELC student Trinitey Douglas, with the help of volunteers from the ELC, is hosting the second annual Disability Day, an opportunity to show students what it might be like to live with a disability.Douglas was born with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC), which her Mother Kimberly Westgate describes is the curving of the joints. Douglas is only effected in her arms and shoulders.After an opportunity in 2017 to participate in a conference with others that live with AMC, this would be a defining point for Douglas when her perspective of herself changed. As she met others that lived with more complex complications such as a girl that used her feet to apply her makeup, Douglas recognised she was able to do a bit more and this inspired Douglas to find her voice.last_img read more

Weight Andhra Bears

first_imgAndhra Pradesh, with its 25 Lok Sabha seats, is important in the event of a hung Parliament after the current polls. The State is also going for simultaneous Assembly elections, the first since the bifurcation in 2014. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu is fighting the elections with his back to the wall. In 2014, the ruling Telugu Desam got 15 seats, YSR Congress eight, and BJP two while the Congress drew nil. Then, TDP and BJP were allies but this time both are going separately after Naidu severed ties with NDA in March last year on the issue of Centre not giving special status to Andhra Pradesh. After 2004, this is the first time TDP is contesting without a pre-poll alliance. Also Read – A special kind of bondThough the contest will be by and large triangular between TDP, Congress and YSR Congress Party of YS Jaganmohan Reddy, BJP and movie star Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena are also trying to make their presence. All parties are contesting without allies and fighting from all the seats. While the Jana Sena is strong in the coastal Godavari region and Guntur, YSR Congress has performed exceedingly well in the Rayalaseema region. TDP is strong in Coastal Andhra. Congress and BJP are minor players. Also Read – Insider threat managementNaidu is fighting hard to defend his throne while the challenger Jagan Mohan Reddy is inching towards power. Reddy has money, workers and age on his side. He has undertaken a Prajasankalpa Yatra since 2017 covering the entire state to woo the voters. He has the backing of the influential Reddy community, which is pitted against Naidu’s powerful Kamma community. In 2014, Naidu won, riding on the Modi wave which helped to beat Jaganmohan Reddy to the Chief Ministerial chair. Pawan Kalyan also supported him. As against the vote share of 32.5 per cent of Telugu Desam Party, YSRCP got 32.1 per cent vote that resulted in TDP bagging 103 seats in the Assembly as against 70 of YSRCP. Naidu is clearly facing the toughest challenge in his four-decade-long political career this time. Fighting anti-incumbency and also the charge from his critics that he could not get the special status from the Centre, Naidu continues to believe that the Modi- bashing might help him get votes. A major worry for TDP is which side the 17 per cent Kapu community will favour this time. In 2014, they favoured TDP due to the influence of Pawan Kalyan. Pawan’s party may end up splitting the votes this time, which would potentially harm TDP. For optics, Naidu has mobilised the support of other regional satraps like the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and former Prime Minister Deve Gowda to campaign for him. He believes that his raised national profile might impress the voters. Jagan, as a challenger has announced ‘Navaratnalu’ or nine welfare schemes. This includes Rs 50,000 per annum to farmers, fee reimbursement to all students, Rs 15,000 to women to encourage them to send their children to school, waiver of all loans taken by women from cooperative societies, ban on alcohol, construction of 25 lakh houses, reduction of pension age from 65 to 60, etc. Jagan thinks that these liberal doles might help him capture the throne. Pawan Kalyan is the X factor in these elections. A Kapu by caste, Pawan ‘s party has influence in the coastal districts in over 50 assembly seats. He may not win but can damage the chances of Naidu. Kalyan has tied up with BSP and Left parties, which have a vote share about 2 per cent. Pawan has promised clean politics and also bring the Chief Minister under the Lokayukta. While the ruling TDP is depending on their government’s welfare schemes, the opposition parties are depending on the anti-incumbency factor. TDP banks on the split in the opposition vote. Naidu announced a string of sops and doles on January 25 for various castes and sections of people, followed by a farm investment support scheme of Rs 10,000 per year announced on February 13. While Naidu is seen as a capable administrator, the Opposition plays upon his failure to keep promises of 2014. The world-class capital Naidu promised to build at Amravati has barely taken off. BJP is depending on Jagan to come to its rescue in the post-poll scenario if required. Reddy can hardly afford to have a pre-poll pact with BJP given his strong support base among the Christians and Muslims. However, there is some tacit understanding between the two parties to support each other secretly wherever possible. Andhra Pradesh continues to remain relevant in the national scenario. Ultimately, even Naidu can go back to NDA as he has been doing in the past.(The views expressed are strictly personal)last_img read more
