Four-Time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series Voice returns with the strongest vocalists from across the country invited to compete in the show's newest Season. Rock icon and pop culture phenomenon Gwen Stefani reclaims her red chair alongside superstar coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Blake Shelton as they return for Season 19. Carson Daly returns as Host. The show's innovative format features four stages of competition: first begin with Blind Auditions, then Battle Rounds, Knockouts, and, finally, Live Performance Shows. During Blind Auditions, decisions by musician coaches are based solely on voice and not looks. Coaches hear artists perform but they don't get to see them, thanks to rotating chairs. If the coach is impressed by an artist's voice, he / she pushes a button to select an artist for his / her team. At this point, coach's chair will swivel so that he / she can face the artist they select. If more than one coach pushes the button, power then shifts to artists to choose which coach they want to work with. If no coach pushes their button, artist is eliminated from competition. Also returning this season is block, which adds another layer of excitement during Blind Auditions. Coach chair each has an extra set of buttons with the other three coaches' names. The Block button prevents coachs from adding a new artist to their team. Coaches can only use their block buttons on one artist for the entire first round of competition. When coach hit block button with the name of other three coaches, coach who hit it automatically turns around. Block coach only discover they are blocked if they press their button. Block coach's chair will still turn, however, instead of their lane Lighting up with their name, it say block. If the coach doesn't press their button, block is still available for another audition. Once teams are set, battle is on. Coaches dedicate themselves to developing their team of artists, giving them advice and sharing secrets of their success, along with help from their celebrity advisers. Coaches enlist music industry heavyweights to prepare their artists for Battle Rounds, names of which will be announced soon. During Battle Rounds, coaches will pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of the studio audience. They are vying for their coach's confidence and the decision to take them to the next round. After each vocal battle, coach must choose which of his / her singers will advance to the next round of competition. Losing artist is available to be stolen by another coach or available to be saved by their own coach, but unlike any other season, team coach can only hit their button to save the artist after it's clear no other coach is going to steal the artist.

About the School

Fine Arts Interdisciplinary Resource School is a grades four-to-eight magnet School located in Crystal, Minn. That provides intercultural learning opportunities to 558 students from Minneapolis and surrounding suburban school districts. The mission of FAIR School is tri-fold: intercultural learning, Fine Arts performance, and academic excellence. FAIR School was created by West Metro Educational Program, voluntary consortium of 10 urban and suburban school districts in the Minneapolis metropolitan area that was formed in 1989 to cooperatively address integration issues. WMEPs mission is to promote student success and community acceptance of differences by providing opportunities for students, families, and staff from diverse backgrounds to learn from and with each other. Student admission for FAIR School is based on an enrollment lottery held in each district. While there is no formal audition, it is important that students enjoy some level of success and interest in at least one area of Fine Arts. Fine Arts offerings include dance, vocal and instrumental music, theatre, visual art, and media arts. School information is compiled from the FAIR School Web site: https: / FAIR. Mpls. K12. Mn.

Police and public safety

Police began organizing in earnest to improve their working conditions in the 1910s. Today, largest union, Fraternal Order of Police, has more than 2 000 local chapters and nearly 350 000 members. Because Police Departments are often strongly hierarchical, rank-and-file Officers tend to rely on unions to give them voice and shield them from what they see as arbitrary or punitive enforcement of rules, in a job that relies heavily on Officer discretion. But protection for police, through collective-bargaining agreements or State laws lobbied for by unions, often exceeds that provided to workers in other industries, law professors Catherine Fisk and L. Song Richardson write in a 2017 article in George Washington Law Review. In Minneapolis, union president, Bob Kroll, followed the common path when he defended officers involved in Floyds death and lashed out at protesters as a terrorist movement. On June 10, police chief in Minneapolis, Medaria Arradondo, withdrew department from contract negotiations with the union. He said he wanted to restructure contracts for flexibility for true reform, regarding salaries but rather use of force and discipline process. Phil, when you were working with the Police in Minneapolis, how did you see Departments relationship with union? The whole idea that police should be able to unionize in the first place needs to be interrogate. One study shows that when sheriffs unions were allowed to bargain collectively in Florida in the early 2000s, based on State Supreme Court ruling, complaints about violent misconduct rose 40 percent. The language of the contract with the union in Chicago requires misconduct records to be destroyed after five years; in Cleveland, it is two years. Louisiana has a law, which police unions lobby for, that says investigators have to wait 14 days to question an officer who uses a weapon or seriously injures or kills someone and 30 days to question an officer accused of other misconduct. Investigations and discipline of Officers basic on-job accountability should not be within purview of collective-bargaining agreements between Police unions and cities. One big problem is that cities cannot negotiate new union contract unless the union vote to approve it, so theyre stuck with old contracts, which include concessions theyve made to unions on accountability and oversight over decades. We ca hold the police accountable for use of force or misconduct if unions continue to have veto power over change. When I became chief in 2008, I had five chiefs in five years. Camden had one of the highest murder rates in the country. The rate for solving murders was only 17 percent, and there were open-air drug markets all over the City. There was borderline hatred between the community and the police. It was very hard to make any progress. In 2011, when Camden was in fiscal crisis, State threatened huge layoffs to the Police force unless the union made major concessions to contract.

Fighting for religious freedom

The past year has posed significant challenges for many LGBTQ members of faith communities. For example, recent vote in United Methodist Church strengthened its ban on marriage for same-sex couples and LGBTQ clergy, leaving many LGBTQ United Methodists feeling discouraged and isolate. Meanwhile, Trump Administration is actively stripping away nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people. Administrations often justify these actions UNDER the flimsy guise OF RELIGIOUS Liberty, arguing that RELIGIOUS traditions are valid excuse to discriminate against LGBTQ people, further erasing the experiences of LGBTQ people of faith. Just this past spring, however, LGBTQ people of Faith VOICE their strong support for the Equality Act, groundbreaking bipartisan Bill that would provide LGBTQ people with consistent and explicit protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in employment, housing, public spaces, credit, jury service, and federally funded programs. The Equality Act was passed in the US HOUSE OF Representatives on May 17 2019, with support from more than 5 000 people OF Faith and more than 70 Faith-base organizations. This victory reflects recent polling that shows that majorities of all RELIGIOUS groups are in favor of broad nondiscrimination protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. LGBTQ people OF Faith have continually been at the forefront OF social change across the United States. Not only have they played an important role in fighting for LGBTQ Equality, but they have also been essential in pushing toward a variety of innovative, inclusive, and morally centered policy ideas. LGBTQ change-makers are motivated because in spiteof their identities. They have worked to ensure that the United States is living up to its values of FREEDOM, Equality, and Justice for all individuals, no matter who they love or how they identify. The Center for American Progress Faith and Progressive Policy Initiative identifies just nine OF many extraordinary LGBTQ Faith leaders from across the country who are leading movements for social change. In personal communications with authors in August 2019, they discuss their faith and advocacy journeys. Through their work, these leaders have proposed powerful visions for the United States to reform its criminal justice system, advance climate Justice, dismantle systemic racism, and more. Some have been fighting for justice for decades; others have found their calling more recently. Some are already well know, while others are making waves from behind the scenes. These leaders come from a wide variety OF backgrounds, yet they all share the following: by faithfully leading at the intersection OF their identities, they play a pivotal role in fostering bold, progressive policies to create a more just world. Their leadership in current moment makes them critical Faith leaders to watch in 2019 and beyond.
