It’s really important to restore confidence and trust in government in Northport. Jeff Thompson, the candidate Hayes defeated in 2012, is running for the seat again. Thompson is the pastor of Oasis Baptist Church in Northport and says he hopes to become to be a public servant, not a politician. Thompson said his motivations for entering the council race again are a first-grader at Crestmont Elementary School and a sophomore at Tuscaloosa County High. I’m running for two reasons and two reasons only. I have two sons, Thompson said. http://www.buffalos-rufc.com/lukewoodnews/2016/08/05/some-insights-on-recognising-root-criteria-of-vocationI have children that the future of Northport is going to affect. Thompson said he is unwilling to sit on the sidelines and criticize the city without trying to get in the game and affect change from the inside. Thompson called for a better working relationship between the religious community and local government, but made it clear that his faith was not the central plank of his platform. He said he was not running to be pastor of District 1, and said the area would benefit from establishing a profitable nightlife, even though as a preacher, he wouldn’t be frequenting the bars. We’ve got three major colleges here and things close at 9 o’clock, Thompson said. Just because I don’t go to the club and just because I don’t go out doesn’t mean we’ve got to make it more user-friendly. Thompson, like Hayes, called for infrastructure improvements throughout the district, and said if elected, he would host a conference call once a month which constituents could dial into for information about what was happening at City Hall. The third candidate in the race for District 1′s council seat is Dennis Hambright, a BFGoodrich retiree who was also a union secretary for more than a decade.

Transformative teaching is not mere instruction. Its goal is not obedient compliance or mechanical repetition. Rather, transformative teaching aims to conjure something new into existence knowledge, virtue and love of learning. The model for transformative teaching is Socrates. Socrates described himself as a midwife who facilitated a magical birthing process. When teaching works, young people grow into full-fledged human beings. Low wages, heavy workloads and external pressures can kill the joy of teaching. Institutional constraints can reduce teaching to mere instruction. The move to computerized instruction presumes that computer programs can do much of the work.http://henrythomasnow.boxcrack.net/2016/08/01/besides-this-the-countrys-minimum-wage-does-not-match-level-of-productivity-within-specific-industries

He.s under the authority of his own superiors, and he serves the local diocese through the works of his order or congregation located there. Ignatius in his “Spiritual Exercises”: With regard to this present will of God, it may be said, at least of priests who do not obtain a dispensation, that sacerdotal ordination confers a vocation upon them. This feeling is not necessary, and is not to be trusted without reserve, though it may help to decide the kind of order which would best suit us.
