Governor and Lt. Governor Celebrate Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. at Events in Philadelphia

first_img Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman today celebrated the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. by participating in a day of service event and national bell ringing ceremony, both in Philadelphia.At the 24th Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service at Girard College, Gov. Wolf called for peaceful action toward an end to gun violence, moving forward to safer communities, taking care of each other, and following the example of Dr. King.“We simply cannot accept gun violence as a normal part of American life,” Gov. Wolf said. “And now, we simply cannot wait any longer to act. We need to stand together as Dr. King showed us, stronger than hate and united against violence. “It is increasingly important that we all come together, from different communities and different backgrounds, to celebrate what Dr. King stood for, what this day represents. We can and should make a commitment to serving our communities and each other every day.”At the day of service, the governor and lieutenant governor participated in assembling “dream booths,” portable three-dimensional displays made of synthetic plastic pipe with panels of cloth with personal expressions of values and dreams of a world without gun violence called Dreamline Banners attached.The Greater Philadelphia King Day of Service is organized through Global Citizen, a non-partisan organization dedicated to promoting civic engagement, community volunteering, civic responsibility, and sustained active citizenship among diverse groups, particularly young people. Global Citizen promotes democracy building, voter education, and participation, locally and globally.At the Philadelphia Martin Luther King, Jr. Association for Nonviolence, Inc. annual bell ringing ceremony, Governor Wolf’s remarks focused on Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy. “Dr. King’s example – his dedication to his community, to his incredible cause, and to his fellow man is truly awe-inspiring and I’m really pleased to play a small part in both preserving and moving forward his legacy,” Gov. Wolf said.“Moving forward – with peaceful yet powerful action and not passivity. This is a focus of my second term as governor of this great state; a state that celebrates and demonstrates its diversity, its commitment to family, to neighbor, to community every day. Nowhere is that more evident than in Dr. King’s legacy.”Dr. King’s widow, Mrs. Coretta Scott King, requested a national bell ringing ceremony to commemorate the first national Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday in 1986 as a means to further the Martin Luther King, Jr. Federal Holiday Commission’s mandate to “to provide advice and assistance to federal, state and local governments and to private organizations with respect to the observance of the holiday.”Laura Wooten, a longtime election day volunteer, was the official bell ringer for the ceremony. The Philadelphia Martin Luther King, Jr. Association for Nonviolence, Inc. was founded by Honorable Dr. C. DeLores Tucker and a group of local leaders in 1983, 17 years after the assassination of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The mission of the association is to preserve and advance the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through educating, interpreting, advocating and promoting nonviolent theory and philosophy. “Because Dr. King devoted his life to making our world better, let us follow his example by doing the same,” Gov. Wolf said. “And let us work to make the world fairer and our communities better every day.” SHARE Email Facebook Twitter January 21, 2019center_img Governor and Lt.

What to Do When Your Job Search Gets You Down

Think about it: every dead end, every no, every unanswered email — it can feel like you aren’t good enough for that or any job. That kind of destructive thinking is enough to make anyone sulk and stop searching.“A lack of progress with anything can be frustrating, but job hunts can be especially demoralizing because it’s hard not to take things personally,” Liu continues.But there are better things to do than sulk when your job search takes a wrong turn — things that will help clear your mind and give you the energy you need to go after that dream job. Here are a few ideas.1. Stay ActiveAccording to Matthew Kerr, career adviser and hiring manager at Resume Genius, “part of the reason we become depressed during a job search is because we lack a sense of purpose.” By staying active — whether that means joining a workout class, playing a sport or participating in a hobby — you can prevent getting the blues. Plus, “it will make you feel like your life has meaning beyond having a job, and reduce the stress that comes with worrying about the future,” says Kerr. “In turn, you will have a positive outlook when searching for jobs and sending applications.”2. Create a Daily ScheduleA job search can be overwhelming simply because of the fact that you may feel you always have to be on the lookout for places to apply. But instead, “treat your job hunt like a job, and clearly define the hours of the day you devote to job hunting,” Liu recommends. “Carving off specific hours helps you compartmentalize your job search and avoid negative outcomes from spilling into your entire life.”The Ultimate Cheat Sheet for Organizing Your Job Search3. Take a Break From Social Media“When you’re already in a tough situation, going on social media and seeing everyone else’s seemingly fantastic lives is just going to exacerbate your false feelings of being useless,” warns Kerr. So, consider suspending your social media accounts that aren’t integral to your job search — perhaps Facebook and Twitter — or cut back the hours you spend on them. Not only will the break be good for your spirit, it’ll be good for the search itself. “Social media is a huge time sink when searching for a job,” Kerr points out. “It’s easy to become caught up in using social media for hours, when you know you should be updating your resume. Staying away from social media will help maintain focus.”4. Solicit Candid CritiqueYou feel as if you’re putting your best foot — or as the case may be, application — forward, and yet, you’re not getting anywhere. If that sounds like you, it’s time to ask friends, family and colleagues for advice, says Liu. “If you’re not making any real progress over a long period of time, take some time to get an honest assessment of your job search materials or skills,” he says. “Seeking the input of a third party, objective mentor or trusted coach can help to illuminate a flaw in your approach so you can quickly rectify it.”8 Reasons Why You Didn’t Make It Past The First Interview5. Diversify Your Job-Search TacticsHave you ever heard that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results? Well, you may just be driving yourself insane if you aren’t diversifying your job-search tactics. “Create a portfolio approach to your job search so you don’t just focus on one way to find jobs,” Liu advises. “For example, if you’re just applying to jobs on job boards, try to focus instead on networking. If networking hasn’t worked, perhaps try to connect directly with some relevant recruiters who specialize in the sector you’re targeting.”6. Remind Yourself: You Will Find a Job“When a job search is taking a long time, people tend to fall into a mindset where they feel like they will never get a job,” says Kerr. But it’s not true. You will find a job, and it’s imperative you talk to yourself in a positive way. “All hardships come to an end at some point — and reminding yourself there is light at the end of the tunnel will give you the strength and energy to keep going,” Kerr says.Browse Open Jobscenter_img 3.8★ Part-time Evening Associate Crew Carwash Avon, IN 3.5★ Member Service Supervisor (MSS) BJ’s Wholesale Club Quincy, MA Plumber C.E.
