Dubbed Brony King MA Larson Visits Hometown of Burnsville

Dubbed Brony King, M.A. Larson Visits Hometown of Burnsville

Burnsville, Minnesota — February 25, 2015 — M.A. Larson first left his hometown of Burnsville in Minnesota after high school. He had ventured into the totally different world of New York where he found employment with what he loves to do the most, writing.

Although the writing jobs mostly composed of writing episodes for ‘SpongeBob Squarepants,’ Larson wrote with a fierce creativity, a sense of parody, and a certain kind of confidence with knowing to be cool in school.

M.A. Larson is a certified Brony. In fact, he was named the king of the Bronies by global media company, Vice, due to his legendary skills with writing among the Bronies.

Bronies are typically the adult male fans of the My Little Pony franchise, specifically the reboot MLP: Friendship is Magic. When asked what’s up with the Bronies, Larson burst into laughter.

Then he excitedly answered that he doesn’t exactly know what the Bronies are but if he would be to guess, they, along with him, are those who grew up in a world where the media emphasizes the violence and cruelties of the world and that the cynicism and skepticism have rubbed off on these men making them reluctant to watch the series at first but when they did, they actually thought it was good and a few more episodes later, they were hooked.

He says that he has gone to lots of conventions and that the experience can be described as a bunch of friends getting together for a similar love for a cartoon.

Larson, who prefers to be called M.A. “Call me Mitch” Larson, has been battling against the cynicism of the world with ponies as allies. But now, he is also busy as a successful writer.

He gained critical acclaim for his sincere novel “Pennyroyal Academy” which the New York Times described as ridiculously compelling.

Larson is set to go back to his hometown of Burnsville and on a book signing in Burnhaven Library; he will be talking about his novel.

Pennyroyal Academy is about a princess named Evie who goes to an academy where they train princesses and knights to fight witches and all kinds of evil.

Colorado Construction Defects Bill Moving Up The Senate

Colorado Construction Defects Bill Moving Up The Senate

In Colorado, a bill was passed to change the current construction defect law of the state. It means a builder of condominiums will not be easily sued in case of any defects in the construction of such condominiums. With this bill is the positive belief that there will be more affordable condominiums statewide.

The bill has now jumped over the first hurdle which was presented to the Colorado Legislature.

The bill also covers any construction defects in single and multifamily houses. In case of a lawsuit, the homeowner’s association would need to hire a mediator and majority members of the group must sign a written consent before they could sue the builder.

Accoding to Senator Jesse Ulibarri, housing is suffering not only in Colorado’s Metro Area but statewide. The housing market is getting fewer buyers from various groups of people such as retirees, middle class families and millennials because of the lack of affordable options such as condos in Colorado. Ulibarri also revealed that the bill’s proposal is geared towards settling any issues in a much easier way and by doing so homeowners would know the potential defects before they commit to buying.

Supporters of the bill are positive that this will have a positive effect on people’s hope of having a more affordable condo and a boost in the construction as a result.

The construction defects bill requires mediation in order for a dispute to be given attention legally. From there the dispute may be pursued as long as the majority of the members of the homeowner’s association are onboard. There are provisions stated on the bill which covers the information that may be disclosed on the members regarding the defects and the process it will involve for the issue to be resolved. It also clearly states that any contract between the homeowner’s association and the builder is fixed and may not be rewritten in any way.

The Senate committee approved the bill with 6-2. Some of the sponsors of the said bill are bipartisan and once it reached the Republican Senate, they have a positive outlook on the result.

The same cannot be said on the Democratic House where its leaders are not in sync with the measure. They think the bill will give developers and builders the upperhand.

Art Class Is Divided And Competes In Designing A Website For Two Non-Profit Organizations

Art Class Is Divided And Competes In Designing A Website For Two Non-Profit Organizations

Learning is better done through experience, hence the saying “experience is the best teacher.” The same thing goes with web design. Before one can become a web designer, he or she must have the knowledge and skills that are needed for web design. But what better way is there to acquire the knowledge and the skills than experiencing it in a classroom setting?

Just recently, the people at Perth Web Design had shared with us information regarding a recently concluded competition at a certain art class in the University of Arizona. Through their referral, we were able to find out what the competition was all about and why it was launched.

In the University of Arizona in the U.S., two groups of web design students had recently collaborated with professional web designers so that they would be able to build a website made specifically for two non-profit organizations. These two groups were pitted with each other to create a website that will serve as the company’s main website.

Chase Family Foundation and Pagnozzi Charities were the lucky organizations that were chosen by the web design company, Rockfish, as the two non-profit organizations that Professor Thomas Hapgood’s students will create a website for.

Professor Hapgood had said that both parties will benefit from the competition because the client will get to receive a free website while his students can use it for their class portfolio. He says that the experience will be good for the students.

Hapgood has been reaching out to non-profit organizations for 10 years now but now he has decided that it would be good experience for his students to work with Rockfish and Haden Interactive.

What he did was to divide the class into two groups and gave them one nonprofit each. They will be required to design a website which will have the chance to be chosen website to serve as the company’s official site.

Each organization would need to have logos, colors and content that the students will be limited to. They say that it may be a challenge but regardless of the winner, what’s important is that the students go through the experience together.

Inside The ISIS Capital

The militant group ISIS claimed that Raqqa, a city in Syria is the capital of their caliphate. One Syrian said in an interview that getting inside the compounds of the city is not a problem but getting out is.

Life inside Raqqa

Raqqa used to be known as one of Syria’s most liberated city. Today, people inside the city are living in grips of fear. Continues air strikes and bombings happen on a daily basis. ISIS commandos and fighters are ruthlessly treating the inhabitants of the city.

According to a resident of the city which was interviewed by CNN, dozens of executions happened inside the city. Within two months there were at least 40 people that were killed. The charges range from taking part in the Free Syrian Army, being gay, or being an activist. Punishment by death is immediately perpetuated to those found guilty.
There is a constant forced blood donation among the inhabitants of the city. If you are charged with a crime, brought to a court, there is a greater chance that you will end up in a hospital donating your blood to wounded ISIS fighters. People are forced to donate their blood and bring back the receipt to the high court.

Perhaps women suffer the most inside Raqqa. For women living in the city, it is like a bog prison cell for them. Girls who are below 45 years old are not allowed to momentarily or permanently leave the city. There are at least 270 Syrian girls documented who were forced into marrying ISIS fighters. The militants take two or three wives for them and even find some Yazidi girls for slaves.

Infrastructures inside the city get a face lift thru paintings of bright colors. In the Raqqa square where most executions were made, the buildings were repainted with vibrant colors. Activists in the area said that the terror group does this so that the buildings will not become a target of airstrikes. When the ISIS fighters first came into the city, they painted all of the building black but later changed the coating to pink, gold, white and green paint.

Hamas Designated As A Terrorist Group By Egyptian Court

Cairo, Egypt- A court in Egypt has recently ruled that Hamas is to be considered a terrorist organization. Hamas is an Islamic group that resides mostly in the Gaza strip. The group was already at a bad relationship with the Egyptian government when the former president of the country, Mohammed Morsy, was ousted from office in a coup last 2013. The change in leadership angered the group which made them launch several attacks and protests in Egypt.
The Egyptian former president was a devout member of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamist political organization and it has a deep bond with the Hamas organization. When Morsy was kicked out of office in the summer of 2013, the Muslim Brotherhood was labeled as a terrorist group several months later.

Egypt as a mediator between Israel and Pakistan

Hamas leaders and members condemned the decision made by the Egyptian court. The spokesperson for the terror organization said that the decision was not foreseen and one that is dangerous targeting the people of Palestine. He further stated that Egypt’s judgment will deeply hurt the reputation of Egypt.

Egypt has been a neutral nation to the bickering between Israel and Palestine. For years it has played a very important role in the peace negotiations between the warring parties. Egypt’s reputation was that one that is impartial. With the new high court ruling, this will surely create a new turn for the mediator role of Egypt.
The Egyptian court that made the ruling is the Urgent Matters Court. The court decision was based on evidences that Hamas supported insurgents and have series of attacks in the Sinai Peninsula. This region has been under hostility for recently.

On another note, the armed wing of the terror group, al Qassam Brigades, was also ruled as a terrorist group by Egypt’s Urgent Matters Court last month.

Hamas

Hamas is an organization founded in Palestine. It is a Palestinian Islamic group but has been designated by several countries to be a terrorist group. Among the countries that expressed blatant comments that the group is terroristic as evidenced by their activities are the United States, Australia, Japan, Israel, United Kingdom and Canada. In Jordan, the government prohibits the entry of Hamas members. In other countries such as China, Iran, Qatar and Turkey, the organization is not perceived as a terrorist organization.
