After Metro Vancouver’s failed transit plebiscite, local mayors have been quietly coming up with ways improve public confidence in TransLink. Port Coquitlam Mayor and Metro Vancouver regional district chair Greg Moore says the mayor’s task force will unveil its recommendations on how best to run TransLink next Monday. Moore says its important to bolster confidence in TransLink so it can acquire more funding and begin building key transit projects. There is still zero movement on the funding front, with Moore saying the only good news is coming from the Trudeau government. He says the province must realize a plebiscite is not the best way to determine how to fund transit and transportation. What we knew by 1990 about the 1940 dinner was published in Irregular Memories of the ’Thirties.
There is also extant a letter from Steele to Vincent Starrett about this drawing, quoted in the previously cited unpublished memoir by Steele’s son Robert: “I had an absurdly hard struggle with my Sherlock. The 1940 dinner might not have included every Irregular of that era with whom one would wish to dine, but it was a fine list nonetheless.
He went on to describe how, in the lore of the Irregulars, Doyle is pictured as a struggling young physician, delighted at the chance to “peddle” the cases his friend Dr. Meanwhile, and with 221B still rolling off the presses, I am sending you a first very rough-and-ready copy of the Gazetteer which you have egged me on, from time to time, to write. Re the Gazetteer: I'm inclined to agree with you that it might be extended to advantage by a listing of the more important clubs and restaurants, etc.
I imagine we should not too often bring out a volume of ana; the public might easily tire of us. You have chosen a delightful subject for your thesis; and you will pardon me if I hope that you will treat it not too seriously, but with a touch of humor. A few years later, an editor was interested in publishing the essay — the best of all possible editors for Sherlockian work, Vincent Starrett himself.
A copy of Morley’s letter to Smith below went to Vincent Starrett in Chicago, with the handwritten note: “Merry Christmas, Vincenzio. When I was in Chicago a week ago I learned from Vincent Starrett that his book 221-B is actually to be published on January 30. I hope I may assume that like Peterson the commissionaire, or No, it was Henry Baker, you are carrying a white goose and walking with a slight stagger.
Ones who came into the BSI at the 1940 dinner: John Connolly, Peter Greig, Howard Haycraft, James Keddie (his son James Jr.
Of other names on this list, Harold Latham was, as we have seen, Trade Editor at the Macmillan Company responsible for publishing 221B: Studies in Sherlock Holmes. This was a 1940 collection of essays by Vincent Starrett, published by Random House, with an “Unconventional Index” by Christopher Morley.
Meanwhile, Starrett was already building a new Sherlock Holmes collection, with a big start in August 1940 from Logan Clendening. All this within your ear; but the circumstances being what they are, you will understand why I can't be any place but Reno on January 30. Denis Conan Doyle made a neat little address in which he stuck to the tradition of the Irregulars and told us about his father's acquaintance with Holmes. Since the first draft of the Gazetteer, I have added about 150 more names - still without resorting to bars or theatres - but more important, I have fallen in with Dr.
Who the members were of the Irene Adler Division with which Christopher Morley and other Irregulars convened immediately following the BSI dinner in New York is a mystery, however. For many years, it was believed that BSI dinner photographs commenced after World War II, with the one of the 1946 dinner. Bill Vande Water has picked up where Harry Hazard left off, and carried on with his typical valiant job of assigning names to faces, but a few remain unidentified. One of the reasons for many Chinese students studying in US schools is to escape the gaokao, China's national entrance examination, and the fierce competition that comes with it. Rhodes noticed that Chinese students nowadays arrive at a younger age, with most starting in the ninth grade. The bank's charter stipulates that the AIIB is legally valid so long as more than 10 countries - with their combined represented capital accounting for no less than half of the total capital - have the charter approved by their legislatures.
Lou said that along with other countries, China will perfect the rules in a runup to granting the first loan, which is expected in mid-2016. Lawmakers also passed a State Council proposal granting the council the power to change the method for initial public offerings of shares on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges from an approval-based system to a registration-based one. In South America, which has been battered by days of torrential rain, Paraguay was the hardest-hit country with at least 100,000 people evacuated, according to the National Emergency Department.
In the UK, Lancashire in northwest England and Yorkshire in the northeast were the worst affected on Saturday, with environmental officials issuing more than 300 alerts in those areas, including 31 warnings of possible deadly floods. About 10,000 homes in northern England were without power after a substation was damaged, and many elderly and other vulnerable people were rescued from inundated homes by lifeboat. With more severe weather expected across central areas of the country, forecasters were warning of airport delays and flooded roads as travelers returned home after the Christmas holiday.
Experts said the investigation of Chang has much to do with his tenure at China Unicom, where he masterminded the company's efforts to develop third-generation communication networks. Zhang Wenkui, an official at the State Council Development Research Center, said they comprise a large part of uncompetitive industrial capacity, and closing zombie enterprises is interrelated with shedding excessive capacity. Made by Inner Mongolia First Machinery, a subsidiary, the tanks are in service with at least 28 firefighting departments in Shandong, Shaanxi, Shanxi and Hunan provinces. With the chassis and armor of a military tank, the vehicles can protect crew members from fire, explosions, building collapses and can cross half-meter-high obstacles or 2-meter-wide trenches.
Compared with fire engines, the tanks can get closer to blaze scenes and be used for search-and-rescue missions, according to the statement. Using 520-horsepower diesel engines and equipped with hydraulic devices, the tanks can clear obstacles weighing up to 15 metric tons. Such stories read like crudely written morality tales, with everything in black and white and a simple yes-or-no message.
In particular, it highlights the responsibilities of enterprises in the communications sector and states that they must provide technical support or other assistance to police and public security departments investigating potential threats.
For example, he said, the US has a law that requires telecoms companies to provide technical support to judicial authorities and law enforcement officers involved with combating terrorism. Under the new law, telecoms operators and Internet service providers are also required to use their technical skills to decipher encrypted documents and other materials shared online by suspected terrorists when instructed by public security authorities.
An Weixing, head of the Ministry of Public Security's counterterrorism unit, said the law is in response to social concerns. Last week, Liu Yuejin, an assistant minister of public security, was named as China's first counterterrorism commissioner. The environmental protection sector has grown by about 20 percent a year since 2011, with more than $500 billion injected in the sector over that period. Gao said China will also step up negotiations next year on the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, as well as the free trade agreement between China, South Korea and Japan, and the country's proposed FTAs with Sri Lanka and Maldives, to build stronger trade and investment ties with global partners. Many victims are too afraid to speak out, said Jiang Yue'e, vice-president of the China Association of Marriage and Family, which released a brochure in December to advise social workers, police and women's federation employees on how to deal with victims of domestic abuse. Staff turnover rates are relatively high for multinationals based in China, and air pollution has been cited as the top challenge in luring and retaining talent among such companies, according to the latest business confidence survey by the European Chamber of Commerce.
A report published this month by realtor Jones Lang LaSalle and indoor solutions company Pure Living said 90 percent of office buildings in Beijing are not significantly reducing airborne particulate matter with their current filtration systems. Pure Living's chief executive, Louie Cheng, said about a third of Fortune 100 companies that his company works with have now started cleaning up office air, with the majority targeting indoor particulate matter. At 85 years old, Chui is committed to handmaking his dim sum - dumplings with meat, seafood and sweet fillings served in stacks of bamboo baskets - saying that freshness is key to their success.
At Maxim's Palace in the harbourfront City Hall building - a favorite with locals and tourists - chandeliers sparkle over dim sum diners in the buzzing banqueting hall.
Dim sum - which means "touching the heart" - is a Cantonese-style cuisine from southern China, often served with pots of tea.
With demand growing and rental costs high, mass-produced buns and dumplings imported from the Chinese mainland are a way to up the volume and cut costs.
Of the five finalists making dim sum from scratch, 17-year-old Wu Cheng-long won after making dishes including crunchy lotus-seed pastry and a spring roll filled with fruit.
Russia will start constructing two nuclear reactors in Iran next week, as Teheran seeks to reduce its reliance on oil and gas with 20 facilities over the coming years.


The new finds, together with excavated hoof-shaped gold ingots inlaid with jade or glass - a material typically used solely by the royal Han family-are seen as new proof that the tomb belonged to Liu He (92-59 BC), the deposed eighth Han emperor who reined for only 27 days, according to Yang Jun, the excavation team leader.
Archaeologists are working with some of the 285 golden ingots found at the Marquis Haihun tomb excavation site on Thursday in Nanchang, capital of Jiangxi province. The paper said China's carrier force had made considerable progress in combat readiness this year, with more fighters parked on board and more flights handled by the carrier. A witness, Emeka Peters, said the fire broke out at about 11 am when a tanker truck that had finished discharging fresh gas at the Chikason Group Gas plant left without waiting the prescribed cooling time.
The product originated with a practical joke in which Vitality Air founder Moses Lam put a plastic bag of fresh air on eBay with a price tag of 99 US cents. In this TV screen grab from BBC, Beijing resident Li Tianqin tries to get her son refreshed with a canister of Vitality Air's fresh air.
Two of the three mineshafts caved in, the Ministry of Public Security reported on its micro blog. However, Wang, reiterated that the nation is still a developing country based on its GDP per capita. Li Lele, a tourist from Xiamen, Fujian province, beams with joy after receiving a gift from Santa Claus in Sanlitun, Beijing. A statement issued by the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau said the alert had been issued to deal with an increasing number of public activities in shopping malls, entertainment venues and restaurants during the festive period.
Beijing police have four types of security alert - red, orange, yellow and green - to respond to different levels of threats, with red being the highest. There was an obvious police presence in Wangfujing, the busiest commercial street in central Beijing, on Christmas Eve, with many shoppers taking pictures.
A team of officers from the Snow Leopard Commando Unit, a special operations unit under the Armed Police Force tasked with counterterrorism duties, stood guard at a shopping complex in Sanlitun.
The increased security measures did not deter people from lining up to take pictures with Santa Claus.
Revision of this constitutional requirement was, however, adopted, viva voce, and amendment to the Constitution hereby imposed, in that it is required hereafter that the toast shall not be canonical but Conanical. Christopher Morley announced that the meeting, which was held as usual on a date at variance with the constitutional specification, had been called to celebrate the publication by Macmillans of 221B - a compilation of the writings of various members of the Society. Vincent Starrett, whose unfortunate absence from the meeting can be compared only with the intolerable absence of Mrs. In the United States on Estate business, making Sherlock Holmes publishing and radio and motion picture deals, and doing some lecturing on his father’s Spiritualist cause as well, he had been invited to the BSI dinner by Christopher Morley.
Certainly I shall be happy to have a copy of your paper - entire - and I trust that you are right in believing it to be publishable.
Since Smith was working from a list supplied by Morley — Woollcott’s name was on the 1935 list, but crossed off on the only copy surviving to be printed in the September 1960 Baker Street Journal — we must wonder about the legend of Woollcott cast out into utter darkness after crashing the 1934 dinner, and publishing his mocking account of it in The New Yorker. On the occasion of the 1940 dinner, however, the editor of 221B: Studies in Sherlock Holmes was not even in Chicago, a mere overnight run on the 20th Century Limited to New York.
The full text now seen indicates that Steele was referring not to the drawing for the 1940 menu, but to the later one done for the 1943 BSI dinner, from “The ‘Gloria Scott’,” which the BSI History series uses for its covers now.The full quotation is “I had an absurdly hard struggle with my Sherlock (who was supposed to be producing the missing story, worse luck). Keddie, a publisher of his as well, at the company where he was vice-president, took it upon himself each year to write Starrett a report of the dinner.
However, it was signed by several at a most successful meeting of the Irene Adler division or Ladies' Auxiliary held immediately after the dinner.
Julian Wolff, who made a couple of neat little maps of spots in the stories about a year ago (I asked him at the time to send copies to you), and he is doing a bang-up job with London, England, the Continent and the world - creations that will be well worth framing and hanging. Yet one man there — the man with the dapper mustache, raising a wine-glass in salute — is still in the ranks.
However, there are indications that US production has reversed as plummeting prices instigated a decline in drilling. The top legislature passed the country's first anti-terrorism law on Sunday, together with several other laws. Industry experts said a list of such enterprises will be published as part of the process leading to official bankruptcy.
Whether out of ignorance or out of a sense of righteousness, some of the journalism that surface online have done a better job at manipulating public sentiment rather than presenting the whole truth. Even with a law in place, "rich people would still be able to go abroad to countries where surrogacy is allowed", he said. However, it called for the ban to be written into law to enhance enforcement in tackling those who still offer such services. However, that number represented a nearly 53 percent decline from the number of workplace deaths in 2002, he said.
To counter it, he has sought to tap into the rising number of Chinese visiting New York City and hired Chinese sales people and built relationships with local tour guides. It was a publication party for the first BSI anthology of Writings About the Writings, Vincent Starrett’s 221B: Studies in Sherlock Holmes, with most of its contributors present that night. Our dearly beloved public won't know Staphonse from Staphouse (if that's not in the eight pages) and even if they do find ground for pinning us down, the controversy might actually be profitable. A copy of the book, presented with the compliments of the publishers, was put at each place.
Cecil For(r)rester, who expressed his sympathy and pledged his assistance in the Society's research in the matter of his ancestral relations with a certain governess.
His talk that evening, Morley reported in writings reprinted earlier in this volume, was “probably the most charming discourse to which we have listened.” Later, though, as Morley also observed, Denis Conan Doyle (not to mention his sometimes volcanic younger brother Adrian) came to regard the BSI as some sort of conspiracy dedicated to usurping their father’s reputation and accomplishments.
In every respect but this the dinner at the Murray Hill Hotel last week was a roaring success, and the book -- however it may ride the seas -- was properly launched. How he came to write to Vincent Starrett in Chicago, he no longer remembers, but from his papers at Franklin & Marshall come these two letters from Starrett, who encouraged him, commented on his paper, and saved it until 221B came along as a convenient outlet a few years later. It seems to me that you have made out an excellent case and I hope you may find an editor who will publish the paper. I propose that you and I appoint ourselves a committee, perhaps together with Harold Latham of the Macmillan Company, to arrange this matter.
His paper “The Creator of Holmes in the Flesh” reads as if it had originally been a talk — perhaps at the ’36 dinner, about which we have few details.
We are thinking of putting out the Gazetteer together about June 1st, as a private effort, illustrated with reductions of these maps, which would really touch it off. Like so many others, he was hit by the Depression, but made ends meet by doing public relations work for various and sundry. I remember an animated discussion with him once about a book on Horace we had published at Cambridge University Press.
With the average oil price down more than $60 a barrel, China's economy has benefited from saving $360 million daily from the country's crude import bill.
And it comes a year after Teheran signed a contract with Moscow to construct two reactors at the existing Russian-built Bushehr power plant.
I doubt that time remains to enable the development of an essay on the Obliquity of the Ecliptic, but it is barely possible, if I apply myself assiduously, that I might have ready for confidential distribution for those present, a typewritten copy of the Gazetteer on which I have recently been making fairly decent progress. Anyway, let me know what you think of it, and how it might be improved, and perhaps for Christmas or some time before I can get my bargain-price printer to put it in type.
He is still at work, and his most recent book, a study of the first ten years of Punch, was published in 1997.
You will be more likely to find one favorable to the idea of publication, I think, if you will abbreviate the essay skillfully; its length just now is against it, I'm afraid. Starrett’s journey began in the Orient and ended in Europe, with his first visit to London in some years.
Smith as Buttons communicated with the membership through memoranda to the BSI, sometimes enclosing whatever membership list was current at the time. Stolper and Howard Swiggett, respectively a professor of English at Columbia University who scandalized his colleagues by contending that literature should be taught by writers, and a novelist well-known in his day, with links to the New York Police Commissioner, and later to certain cryptic wartime British missions in New York. Leavitt, and Gene Tunney, plus at least one other, non-fiction and mystery writer Hulbert Footner, whose only known connection with the BSI is his name on this 1940 list. Hence the membership of people like Don Marquis, Frank Henry, Bucky Fuller and other friends of Chris Morley’s who couldn’t be annoyed with studying the Sacred Writings. It was, I tell you, an ornamental piece of furniture, and when the fire needed replenishing, the bell-pull at the end of the mantel-piece brought the servant lassie from the kitchen with a cannily measured “scuttle” of coal, from which the fire was fed with great daintiness and dexterity. We will try to keep the actual dinner within the blood royal, but as soon as it has taken place Macmillan can make good boblicity out of it to help the book.


How well he managed to associate names with faces that evening, when high spirits and hard spirits were the order of the day, is unclear. Roberts, author of A Note on the Watson Problem, and then Doctor Watson, which Frank Morley at Faber & Faber published.
Incidentally, I think you did us all a service by naming Mycroft Holmes as the detective who solved his problems without ever visiting the scene of the crime or seeing the evidence. After the Woollcott condescension most of us were content to go on without any Stated Meetings .
But it bespoke his confidence in Smith, who had yet to attend a BSI dinner, when he turned first to him for help organizing the 1940 affair. He arrived in New York with a letter of introduction to Christopher Morley in his pocket; and, with no less a Holmesian than S. Cambridge University Press had published Shakespeare’s Imagery and What It Tells Us by Caroline Spurgeon, and I wanted to get publicity for it. He was the BSI’s food-and-drink expert, and worked with me on the annual Oxford and Cambridge dinners in New York too. According to Smith, Denis listened with bewilderment to the various toasts offered to Holmes and his entourage, and to the scholarly reports on various aspects of the investigator’s career. Keddie sent me a jolly letter about it, which, with yours, goes into the permanent records.
His defense, when threatened with inquiry, was to roar (and I use the word deliberately — ROAR), “Don’t put me to the question!” As him and dare him, for me, to deny it. We played a game to see who would be the first to telephone the other each year on December 16th, with the words “O Sapienta,” which we always found on that day in our Cambridge Pocket Diaries. These are delightful ‘studies,’ brought to us with a captivating gravity and an irresistible elan.” Whether or not the first public notice of Professor Altick’s scholarship, 221B brought him an early one in what proved to be a long and distinguished academic career. Bell was there at the time, and when Bell died in 1947, Starrett recalled in his “Books Alive” column in the Tribune walking up and down Baker Street with Bell, arguing about which house had been Sherlock Holmes’s. If we are met with hostility, the case will have to be argued, and I've no way of knowing how long it might take. I met him when I was an undergraduate at Cambridge, attending his lectures on Samuel Johnson, but it was in publishing that he made his reputation.
Spurgeon showed the kind of man Shakespeare must have been by tabulating all the metaphors and similes he used, showing him to be familiar with the countryside, gardens, and domestic animals.
Regis Hotel with that most generous host, Howard Goodhart, Rosenbach always had a full bottle of whisky at his place at the table, while the rest of us drank wine. He was Secretary to the Syndics of Cambridge University Press from 1922 to 1948, and more than any other one man he had brought the University Press out of the academic backwaters into the mainstream of publishing.
There were interesting newcomers, like Howard Haycraft, and John Winterich, a protege of Morley’s at the Saturday Review of Literature, Harrison Martland, Medical Examiner of Newark, New Jersey, and David Randall, from Scribner’s bookshop on Fifth Avenue. Mans-bridge lives in Connecticut, and it is an honor to publish the following reminiscence here. Professor, Public Policy, MVSU; Dr Alpha Diarra, National Cotton Spokesman of Mali, West Africa. Stone and Howard Haycraft, sitting against the wall further down, preserve a serious demeanor. He ended up with two-thirds of a column in Who’s Who, and many honors: Master of Pembroke College, Cambridge, Vice-Chancellor of Cambridge University, and finally Sir Sydney.
Further down, Harvey Officer, soon to be the BSI’s first songster with his Irregular anthem “The Road to Baker Street,” smiles shyly at the camera. The one-day event concludes with a good old fashion “black-tie” (or period-piece costume) “Cotton-Pickers’ Ball and Ancestral Celebration” at da’ House of Khafre located at 300 Main St. Amazingly, just as with other inspired and spiritual writings, drawings, etc., the symbols are beautiful design concepts with meanings still relevant today. The young writers selected for this publication masterfully describe the challenge in dealing with today’s world. By Writers of the 21st Century is an affiliate of Young Publishers Network (YPN) and Khafre, Inc a 501(c)(3) organization working in the Mississippi Delta to improve the welfare and healthy living environments of children in America and around the world.### Thank You Mr. King understands, as do all members of the Khafre, Inc family, that a healing will come through recognition and a true recounting of the history of cotton and its impact in the South.In September, 2009, Khafre, Inc, based in Indianola, Mississippi, embarked upon a journey designed to thank the sons and daughters of the South who helped, albeit it without accolades, fanfare, or even recognition, build the cotton empire that fueled the American economy for nearly two centuries.
The impetus for the project: Cotton Pickers of America and Sharecroppers Interpretative Center (hereafter referred to as the Cotton Pickers Monument Complex) is the need to thank those who toiled in the Delta soil for generations without the pay, appreciation, or the dignity they deserved.
This is truly a historic endeavor that has the rare opportunity of actually transforming lives, communities, and the conversations about race in America and throughout the world.           These deeply held convictions of education and empowerment are keys to improving the quality of life for all within the Delta.
Khafre has already helped young people successfully publish literature, prepare for careers in the television and radio broadcast industry, produce staged events and engage in healthy behaviors through diet and exercise, all with the assistance of grant dollars and strategic partnerships.The crowning work of Khafre remains the Cotton Pickers Monument Complex, a dream, which is coming closer to fruition, day by day, because of the unprecedented support of Mr. Carroll Van West and Rebecca Conard from Middle Tennessee State University’s History Department, along with the ongoing partnership with Mississippi Valley State University, has proven a significant benefit to our overall project. The goal is to obtain as much first-hand information as possible relating to the development of America’s Cotton Kingdom (aka the Delta).In the aftermaths of completing the academic study for a Doctorate in Public History at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), Professor C. For the past eight years Turnipseed was the host of “Delta Renaissance,” a cultural arts talk show focusing on the arts, education, and political issues in the Mississippi Delta.
Winter Building Wednesday, June 18: Former Secretary of State Dick Molpus talks about his experience during the Philadelphia civil rights murders of 1964. Wednesday, September 25: Author Robert Blade will talk about his book, "Tupelo Man," a biography of George McLean. I whole-heartedly agree with the editor that the African American community has proven to the world an uncanny, though unreciprocated, ability to be forgiving of past deeds of injustice, brutality and cruelty at the voting polls, and socially in their community service groups, churches and everyday lives.
That’s impressive for a white candidate in a city and region with a history of racially divided politics.” I agree.
The same, however, cannot be said about the two wards that reflect the primarily White community.
I submit to you the following:In wards I, and II, which are the two wards with the largest white population of voters, we see results that reflect an uncompromising resistance to acceptance and change. With an overall total of 952 votes cast: 732 went to the White candidate and 220 for the two Blacks, combined)…check that! And for the record, as a citizen, it is my right to be afforded the opportunity to run a fair and unbiased race for mayor, without subtle suggestions that it is a waste of my time, as inferred in his editorial. But, then again maybe he knows more than I about how citizens of wards I and II will ultimately vote. After all we live in a community that is 84% African American with a poverty rate that is fast approaching 40% and a public school system that is in deplorable condition, both physically and academically, even under the watchful eye of the government, yet there is no outrage…from either the White side, or the Black side of town.
I just wish he read my bio, or googled me, before publishing doubts about my abilities for success. Now, I am ready to shake up this town with some bold ideas and ever increasing standards for excellence. We MUST work together to improve our community—by encouraging EVERYONE to clean on our streets, bayou, parks, etc. We have some huge unmet challenges here in Indianola, and how YOU decide to vote On December 10, 2013, is vital to our success. Legendary blues and gospel performers Otis Clay, Syl Johnson and Marshal Thompson (founder and lead singer of the ChiLites); along with promoter Gus Redmond will lead the way back home to Mississippi in an effort to support the Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project in the historical Cotton Kingdom AKA the Mississippi Delta. Though the Ball is a “Black Tie Affair” Overalls or other “cotton pickin” attire are encouraged and expected.“I am so pleased that we have partnered with Khafre to host an event of this magnitude,” said Dr.
The two-day event concludes with a good-old-fashion “black-tie” (or period-piece costume) “Cotton-Pickers’ Ball,” on October 18, 2013. This year Khafre, Inc in conjunction with Mississippi Valley State University shall organize the USA’s premier interdisciplinary professional meeting on cotton, sharecropping, and its cultural significance. The deadline is September 6, 2013.Plan to join us in Itta Bena, Mississippi!This is your chance to catch up with old friends and colleagues at The Valley, make important new contacts, discuss the latest in cultural management, stay current with research findings in the historic preservation field, and connect with people who share your core values.
She is also the first African-American female president to lead a Mississippi public university. Since assuming her position on January 1, 2009, she has launched The Valley Renaissance, the institutions five-year strategic plan, which is pictorially depicted by the African Adinkra symbol of a Sankofa a bird that flies with his head facingbackwards as he advances forward without getting off track. Turnipseed is also the host of Delta Renaissance, the number one cultural arts television talk show in the Delta, which airs weekly on WABG-TV, WABG-Radio and Delta Fox-10 television networks.Plans are also underway to incorporate the completed work into the National Parks Services, to insure prosperity and proper maintenance of the Monument.
