Unveiling A Croatian Love Story

Marita was a young nun on a Croatian island when she first met Fani, a fellow sister who would become her great love.

“I simply followed my heart,” the 36-year-old says of their story — the subject of a new, bold documentary in the staunchly Catholic country, where LGBTQ rights are limited.

Titled “Nun of Your Business”, the film premiered at the ZagrebDox international documentary film festival over the weekend, scooping up an audience award.

“It tells the story of an unexpected and unusual love, but my directorial focus was more on the issue of personal freedom,” Croatian director Ivana Marinic Kragic told AFP.

The two women “found strength to eventually fight for their love, which is not generally accepted in our society, and they made a U-turn in their lives,” she said.

With the help of actors to reconstruct some scenes, the documentary tracks the lives of the women

Forget Warren Buffett and Bill Gates — Your Dream Business Mentor Is Already on Your Speed Dial.

If you’re like me, in my search to find the right coach, I dream about enlisting someone at the top of their field – the Stedman Graham or Steve Jobs of our profession. Conventional wisdom suggests that if you want to get good at something, you need to learn from the best. But does this always hold true?

More Alabama students returning to class despite virus worry

Thousands of Alabama students who’ve spent the coronavirus pandemic in virtual classrooms are returning to traditional instruction despite safety concerns and continuing school shutdowns linked to COVID-19.

Schools in Jefferson County began allowing elementary students to return to class full-time on Monday, and additional systems that have offered only online classes or a mix of online and traditional learning will reopen buildings on a full-time basis through next week.

Walter Gonsoulin, the Jefferson County superintendent, said the system planned to stay open unless there is a state or national mandate requiring a shutdown.

“We have mixed emotions,” Gonsoulin told WBRC-TV. “Of course, everyone is still aware that we are living in the middle of a pandemic, so people just want to make sure that we stay on top of the health guidelines.”

As public schools reopened Tuesday in Montgomery, a group of teachers and school workers who contend

Trump’s Attack on Diversity Training Stifles Racial Reconciliation Efforts

Ron House, the president of John A. Logan College, did not respond to a request for comment.

The department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs will also require that federal contractors and subcontractors send in for review the content of diversity and inclusion training programs as well as their duration and expense.

Legal experts say they have never seen such demands. The executive order’s definition of “divisive concepts” is exceedingly broad, and the meaning of “scapegoating,” which is banned in the order, makes little sense, said Scott Hommer, the co-chairman of the
