Flowers, cards and wine. It was very easy to see the love in Renee Amies’ Vancouver household a couple of weeks ago.The cards spread out on tables and in her living room near the fireplace. Flowers and a bottle of wine were there, too, all in appreciation of the 69-year-old Amies’ 43-year career with Weight Watchers. She retired earlier this month.“She’s had members come up to her and cry because she’s leaving,” her husband Rick said. “She relates to the people so well. She gets cards and gifts year round, not just when she’s retiring. People write the most beautiful things.”Amies has devoted more than half her life to working for Weight Watchers, or WW, as it’s now known. When Amies began her career with the company she was 25, and looking to lose around 40 pounds. She started out part time, and she worked evening meetings, or what are now called workshops.“Forty-three years ago, it was more of a diet,” Amies said. “Now it’s more of a lifestyle.”Amies credits her coworkers and WW members she’s assisted for her prolonged career. For some of her time with WW, Amies worked part time, but she also spent a large portion of her career working full time, leading close to 15 workshops per week.Some coworkers did back-of-the-napkin math and estimated that Amies helped more than 600,000 members during her career with WW.“I’m around a lot of people every day, and they are pretty amazing,” Amies said. “They’re learning to take better care of themselves through good food and activity. It’s kind of the thrill of victory and agony of defeat. We all know what it’s like to have a hard week, and we know what’s it’s like to have a good week. I’ve watched members become super-successful and change their lives.”

Manchester United’s Ander Herrera has insisted that it was important to prevent Manchester City from winning the title against them, but does not believe their 3-2 win means anything moreJose Mourinho’s side arrived at the Etihad Stadium last weekend with the threat of their local rivals City claiming the Premier League title against them in the famous Manchester derby.While the league leaders had taken a two goal lead in the first-half, United produced a stunning comeback led by Paul Pogba to seal a shock 3-2 win and deny Pep Guardiola a maiden Premier League title for the time being.Herrera, who started for United in the famous win, believes they could not allow City to claim the title against them.

I would not say we have to turn the page but we have to start thinking about West Bromwich Albion and certify the second place to build a stronger United for the future. The victory in the derby was important for the points but also because it would not have been nice for City to win the title against us.” Herrera told Mundo Deportivo.The 28 year-old insisted that the win was nothing to get excited about, as United have not won any titles yet with the upcoming FA Cup semi-finals later this month representing their only remaining chance of claiming silverware for this season.“There is nothing to celebrate but it was a mental liberation. United’s history is the titles, not winning a derby. We have that clear, but preventing the city’s rival from winning the Premier has an important meaning. During the game I thought about those 4,000 fans who were in the Etihad and who were going to suffer a setback that would have” insisted the midfielder.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan plans to reinvent himself this year as Arsenal begin a new eraThe Armenia international had a mixed first campaign at the Gunners following his January move from Manchester United.Mkhitaryan has failed to reach the heights he managed at Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga after a demoralising spell at United.But, under new manager Unai Emery at Arsenal, the 29-year-old is keen to leave “the old Mkhitaryan” in the past and instead become “someone new”.“I don’t think you’re going to see the Dortmund Mkhitaryan, because in Dortmund the philosophy was different, the playing style was different, the league was different,” said Mkhitaryan, according to the Independent.“Arsenal are playing in a different league with a different manager and different teammates.“I don’t want to see the old Mkhitaryan being here at Arsenal.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, September 20, 2016 – Three new cases of Zika for the Turks and Caicos confirmed the Government in a media release yesterday; taking the country count to 11. Additionally, Government finally explains where the approved half a million in spending for Zika Virus control is going to be used, and half is set aside for the desperate problem of street cleaning. Residents have been vocal about the quietness and about the apparent inactivity of the country’s Ministry of Health in the aftermath of the announcement since July; that Zika is here in TCI. Weeks of that silence is broken and on Monday there was an update on an ongoing action plan which includes a breakdown in how that $500 thousand dollars – shifted from other capital works projects – will be used to fight the bite. The Ministry of Health says, about $80k will be used for the promotion and awareness initiative by Health Promotion and Advocacy Unit while approximately $250k will be used for street cleaning by Public Works Department. It means, $170 thousand dollars is earmarked for the Environmental Health Department for staff support and other resource needs. While the resource needs and augmentation of staff at EHD are not detailed, the report does – by island – say what has been done between February and August. It lists that 2,147 premises inspections have been conducted; Grand Turk got the most of those… that there were 48 island wide clean ups, Provo led with 20… 594 swamp treatments, 469 fogging exercises in the six islands and in Grand Turk there been distribution of mosquito repellant to residents.

Originally passed July 16, the regulations limit short-term rentals to primary residences for up to 180 days a year, preventing local and out-of-town investors from renting out multiple properties other than where they live. They also mandate three-night minimum stays in coastal areas and downtown San Diego.Additionally, regulations impose fee and licensing systems to fund enforcement activities related to short-term rentals and unrelated affordable housing initiatives.If approved, the ordinance will go into effect July 2019.The council voted 6-3 to approve the rules last month after a six-hour hearing that drew emotional appeals from both sides of the issue, including short-term rental industry advocates and others who believe they diminish neighborhood character and the housing stock for permanent residents.Short-term rental providers have decried the ordinance as a de facto ban and are expected to represent their positions during the public comment period of Wednesday’s council meeting.Eventual legal challenges to the regulations have also been brought up by rental advocates.

The tall, lean, rich man’s son could have spent his life lounging about Saudi Arabia in luxury. Instead, Osama bin Laden chose to kill.As a young man, he shot at Soviet invaders in Afghanistan. In middle age, he turned his wrath and far-reaching resources against the United States — the superpower he saw as spoiler of his homeland’s sacred cities.By the time of his death, his was the face of terrorism.President Barack Obama announced from the White House late Sunday that bin Laden had been killed by a special operation in Pakistan. His body is in the custody of U.S. officials.In the mind of the American public, bin Laden was often seen as the person whose sinister creativity resulted in atrocities committed in the name of Islamic fanaticism. In truth, experts said he served more as idol and motivator to militant Muslims who were convinced that America’s support of Israel and its presence in Saudi Arabia — home to the holy places of Medina and Mecca — demanded bloodshed.Bin Laden’s charismatic ways, his fortune and his ability to extract money from other wealthy Islamic extremists gave sophistication and firepower to a terrorism campaign that had been lurching from one haphazard car bombing to the next.
Clark County Major Crimes detectives continue to investigate the slaying of a 61-year-old man whose body was found Monday night in the parking lot of Riverview Community Bank in Hazel Dell.The death of David Michael Gates, a homeless man who frequented the Hazel Dell area and regularly visited businesses there, is considered a homicide, according to a bulletin issued Thursday afternoon.Gates’ body was first discovered about 8 p.m. Monday in the parking lot of the branch at 1220 N.E. 88th St.In Thursday’s bulletin, presumably after an autopsy was conducted, detectives said they are not releasing exactly what killed Gates.In fact, the bulletin said deputies have little information about Gates.As a result, deputies are asking the public to call in tips, including about where Gates was Sunday and Monday — and about the people Gates spent time with.Those with information are asked to call detectives Kevin Harper or Lindsay Schultz with the Major Crimes Unit at 1-877-274-6311; or email them at CCSOMCU@gmail.com.John Branton: 360-735-4513 or firstname.lastname@example.org..
