State Rep. Jim Murphy, R-Houston, announced Thursday he will not seek another term to the Texas House.

Murphy, who represented House District 133 from 2007-09 and again since 2011, chairs the House GOP Caucus and the House Higher Education Committee.

He announced in June his intention to seek reelection, saying in a news release that while the Legislature «accomplished a lot» during the regular legislative session that ended in May, «unfinished business still remains.»

On Thursday, though, Murphy said he is «just looking forward to life’s next great opportunity» and that it had been «an honor and privilege» to serve the constituents of HD-133.

Murphy’s departure marks the 10th open House seat heading into the 2022 election cycle; two other seats are vacant but will be filled during special elections before the 2022 elections.

On Wednesday, state Rep. Chris Paddie, a Marshall Republican who chairs the powerful House State Affairs Committee, also announced he would not seek reelection after previously saying he planned to run for another term.

The retirement announcements have happened as the Legislature readies to redraw the state’s congressional, state House and Senate, and State Board of education maps.

Lawmakers formally kicked off that process Monday as the third special session convened. They will have 30 days to tackle that redistricting process along with over items set by Gov. Greg Abbott, though the governor can order lawmakers back to the Legislature for more overtime rounds should he wish to do so.

Zoeann Murphy will chair the 10th annual Digital Storytelling Contest jury

Zoeann Murphy, United States, is a visual journalist on staff at The Washington Post. She reports largely on humanitarian and environmental issues, as well as covering breaking news. In addition to her work as a visual journalist, Murphy also facilitates photography workshops that provide the tools and opportunities for underrepresented communities to share their own stories in their own way.

Murphy was a member of the 2019 Digital Storytelling Contest jury and is excited to return in 2020 as jury chair:

“I was very impressed by the work we saw last year. The journalistic integrity and production quality of the pieces we reviewed were inspirational. This year I’d love to more entries by digital storytellers covering their own communities, maybe from local news organizations or local visual journalists partnering with larger national and international media organizations. I also hope to continue seeing strong accountability pieces that courageously speak truth to power.”

Murphy encourages all digital storytellers to enter the contest:

“I think some digital storytellers might be intimidated to enter their work. I hope they do it anyway. If you made something you think is meaningful – enter it. The contest is free to enter. The more diverse viewpoints in the work we see the better.”

“Each piece is watched with so much respect for the people who created it. The amount of good digital storytelling being produced right now is mind-blowing and it’s an important contribution to democracy. I want entrants to know how valued their work is,” she adds.

Zoeann Murphy will be joined by a group of professionals in Amsterdam in February 2020 to judge the entries, to be announced later this year.

Lekgetho Makola will chair the 63rd annual Photo Contest jury

Lekgetho Makola, South Africa, is the head of Market Photo Workshop in Johannesburg, a space for culture and development through photography, and is an active member of the virtual continental network Centers of Learning for Photography in Africa.

He reflects on his role as 2020 Photo Contest jury chair:

“It is a significant responsibility to have an oversight of the jury and ensure that the judging process goes as smooth as possible, but also that a state of critical engagement accounting for diversity is allowed, in order to respond to submissions in the most ethical manner and in a way that reflects the global society.

This won’t be the first time Makola participates in the World Press Photo Contest a jury member. In 2019, he was part of the Portraits specialized jury. He encourages photographers coming from countries currently underrepresented in the contests to enter the 2020 Photo Contest.

“I would love to see more submissions by photographers from outside of Europe and North America and more time for jury members to share views on diversity before the judging commences. I strongly believe there is a lot to learn from each other in that process, and a lot to unlearn concerning certain socially constructed views on the practice,” he explains.

The judging process for the 2020 Photo Contest involves four specialized juries and a general jury. It will take place in several rounds over a three-week period during January and February 2020.

“The process is intense. Thousands of images to go through in a limited amount of time. Images have no names attached to them, so you don’t know who made the photograph and where the photographer is from. Each jury member is given an opportunity to engage without fear of favor,” explains Makola.

The full jury will be announced later this year.

Celebrating 10 Years of the Digital Storytelling Contest

This Digital Storytelling Contest edition will be a special one, as 2020 marks the 10-year anniversary of the competition. The contest, open to short documentary film and interactive productions, was launched in 2011 as ‘Multimedia Contest’ to recognize and reward forms of visual storytelling enabled by digital technologies. These technologies have transformed the way we produce and consume stories and continue to shape the future of the media economy.

“Advancements in technology have resulted in increasingly sophisticated experimentation, especially when it comes to innovative and immersive storytelling. This has resulted in powerful collaborations between filmmakers, photographers, writers, designers, graphic artists, and other journalists. Also, some of the tools to tell visual stories are becoming more accessible, allowing for a wider range of viewpoints and a more accurate picture of world events,” explains Murphy.

In its first decade, the contest has grown from 42 nominations in 2011 to 300 entries in 2019, and awards have changed in response to developments in the industry. Last year, for the 2019 Digital Storytelling Contest, the World Press Photo Foundation introduced two headline awards, the World Press Photo Interactive of the Year and the World Press Photo Online Video of the Year.

Entries open on 2 December 2019

Both the 2020 Digital Storytelling Contest and 2020 Photo Contest will open for submissions on 2 December 2019. Entering the contests is free and open to all professional visual journalists around the world.

‘Pay parity is essential’

Also disappointed was Jacob Caplan, advocacy manager for Easterseals New Jersey, which provides services to individuals with disabilities, some of which have been moved to telehealth platforms during the pandemic with “tremendous success.” Participation is up, he said, missed appointments are down and it is time for the state to “fully embrace 21st century healthcare.”

‘We also see this as an issue of economic and social justice.’

“We also see this as an issue of economic and social justice,” Caplan said, noting that most commercial health plans had offered some telehealth coverage, while Medicaid — whose low-income members could benefit significantly — did not until the state ordered it during the pandemic. “Pay parity is essential to this end,” he said.

Others, including New Jersey Association of Health Plans president, Ward Sanders, who represents insurance carriers, had urged Murphy to conditionally veto the bill to promote efficiency and quality outcomes. Linda Schwimmer, president and CEO of the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute and a longtime telehealth advocate, said the governor’s recommendations provide “both flexibility and a thoughtful path forward.”

“The proposed changes in the CV set out a methodology to temporarily extend payment parity to keep telehealth going but avoid unconditionally tying this rapidly evolving area to the existing fee-for-service model of reimbursement that has led to fragmented care and inefficient spending,” Schwimmer said.

Lilo H. Stainton

Lilo H. Stainton has covered New Jersey for two decades, much of it with Gannett newspapers, reporting on public policy, national political conventions and the 9/11 attack on lower Manhattan. She later served as press secretary to Gov. Jon S. Corzine and led a nonprofit coalition’s successful advocacy for federal funding in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. She joined NJ Spotlight News fulltime in 2016 to cover health care.

Fallout 4 смастерить стул

Большинству игроков Fallout 4 Матушка Мерфи успела изрядно потрепать нервы. Все дело в том, что она дает ряд поручений, а ближе к завершению цепочки она требует смастерить ей удобный стул. Все бы ничего, но созданный стул она попросту не принимает, из-за чего нельзя сдать квест и завершить данную цепочку. Для многих стул для Матушки Мерфи в Fallout 4 стал настоящим камнем преткновения, потому рассмотрим способ прохождения задания, является ли подобная ситуация багом и можно ли решить его с помощью консоли.

Утром деньги вечером стулья как форма оплаты

Сразу стоит уточнить, что смастерить стул для Матушки Мерфи в Fallout 4 игровым путем возможно! Для этого нужно лишь создать правильный стул. Обычные варианты не подойдут и NPC откажется их даже принимать. Это не баг, потому что капризной матушке нужен особый стул. Соответственно, найти в Fallout 4 стул для Мерфи можно в мастерской в закладке «особое». Он будет называться именно так, потому при его сдаче задание будет успешно завершено.

Несмотря на то, что в большинстве случаев ошибка была с неправильно созданным стулом, все же некоторые баги с этим квестом могут встречаться. Потому даже при наличии правильной версии стула для Матушки Мерфи в Fallout 4 прохождение задания будет невозможным. Первый баг заключается в том, что NPC находится на втором этаже, где застревает. Даже если вы поставите нужный стул в указанное место, она не сядет на него. Первый вариант решения проблемы – нужно ее убить. Если быть точным, то не убить, а просто нанести летальное повреждение. В большинстве случаев NPC не умрет, а «провалиться» вниз на то место, где стоит стул. После этого Мерфи сядет на него как ни в чем не бывало.

Если же по какой-то причине вы убили ее, и она не воскресла, то ее можно вызвать с помощью консольной команды. Для этого нужно только знать id Матушки Мерфи в Fallout 4. Далее нужно воспользоваться консольной командой «player.placeatme 00019fd8» и добавить ее прямо перед вами. Важно отметить, что при этом нужно находится прямо возле стула, который вы установили, тогда она появится и тут же сядет на него. Если же данныйid не подошел, что может быть после установки дополнений, то нужно воспользоваться рефid 0001a4d9.

Встретив в Fallout 4 матушку Мерфи, вы столкнетесь с ее просьбой сделать для нее стул. Вообще, она много чего попросит — там будет и винт, и ментанты, в общем, всяческая ерунда. Стул — ближе к финалу серии мелких заданий.

И тут игроки сталкиваются с настоящей проблемой: как в Fallout 4 сделать стул для Мерфи этой? Все дело в том, что обычный стул ее не устроит, она не будет на нем сидеть. Немало геймеров ломало голову над проблемой, но решение все-таки было найдено.

Оказывается, нужно всего-то зайти в раздел "Особое" (в мастерской), где есть специальное "удобное кресло для матушки Мерфи". Вот оно нам и нужно, а не простая табуретка.

Защитить стену от стульев на кухне

ак и все игры серии Fallout, 4-я часть начинается со вступительного ролика. В нём главный герой рассказывает о своём пра-пра-прадеде, воевавшим в американской армии в годы второй мировой. Сбросив ядерные бомбы на Хиросиму и Нагасаки, окончив войну, американское правительство стало использовать атомную энергию не просто как оружие, но как новый источник силы. Домашние роботы, футуристичные машины — всё это стало возможным в мире Fallout. Однако затем во всём мире, в том числе и в США, началась война за ресурсы, резкое обеднение населения. Игра начинается в 2077 году, где мир уже стоит на пороге большой войны, а главный герой убеждается на своем примере — «Война. Война никогда не меняется».

Главный герой просыпается утром 23 октября 2077 года с мужем/женой (в зависимости от выбранного игроком пола), умывается, прохаживается по дому, играет со своим маленьким ребёнком, как вдруг в дверь стучится представитель корпорации Волт-Тек, утверждающий, что пора мирной жизни вполне возможно скоро может подойти к концу, поэтому, на случай ядерной войны, необходимо зарезервировать себе место в убежище Волт-Тек, ближайшим из которых является убежище 111. Через некоторое время, по телевидению сообщается о ядерных бомбардировках Нью-Йорка и Пенсильвании. Семья главного героя попадает в убежище 111, откуда ему придётся выйти на поверхность лишь через 210 лет.

Size and space

When choosing a sofa bed, you need to consider what size of sofa you need and what will fit in your home.

Do you need to fit a big family or group of friends in your sofa? In that case, maybe a corner, or a big sectional sofa bed might be a good option. If you lack space in your home, you might want to look at a loveseat, a futon or a small corner sofa bed. If your space is very limited, we also offer a selection of single sofa bed chairs.
