Mouradian will be honored as part of the annual Womenâ€™s History Month celebration at the Capitol on Monday (March 10).Assemblymember Holden is recognizing Professor Mouradian for her efforts to raise awareness of the Armenian Genocide. Mouradian has written and co-produced the book and documentary film, My Motherâ€™s Voice, a poignant story of her mother who at age fourteen was one of the millions of Armenians forced to leave their homes in Turkey during the Armenian Genocide.â€œIt is my great pleasure to recognize Dr.Mouradian for her grassroots efforts to educate us about the historical events of the Armenian Genocide,â€ said Holden. â€œRecognizing the Armenian Genocide and crimes against humanity through her personal story, reminds us that such activism makes a powerful impact.â€After a â€œrootsâ€ trip to her motherâ€™s village in Turkey, she traveled across the deportation route where her motherâ€™s convoy was forced to walk hundreds of miles into the deserts of Syria. My Motherâ€™s Voice is the story of that injustice.Because of the suffering endured by her mother and her family during the Armenian Genocide, the film is very effective. Dr. Mouradianâ€™s mission is to make genocide studies a part of high school and college course of study.

HOOD RIVER, Ore. (AP) — Oregon teachers are eligible for COVID-19 shots before senior citizens after Democratic Gov. Kate Brown decided to prioritize reopening schools. The decision has outraged older people and underscores the moral dilemma state and local officials across the U.S. are facing as they decide who’s first in line for the vaccine. Ethicists say America hasn’t faced such a stark moral calculus in generations. Everyone from the elderly and those with chronic medical conditions to communities of color and front-line workers are clamoring for the scarce vaccine. And each group has a compelling argument for why they should get priority.
LONDON (Reuters) – Aston Villa returned to the Premier League, after a three-year absence, beating Derby County 2-1 in the Championship playoff final at Wembley on Monday.Goals from Anwar El Ghazi and John McGinn put Villa 2-0 up before Martyn Waghorn pulled one back for Derby in the 81st minute, but Dean Smith’s side held on for the victory under intense pressure.The playoff final is considered the most lucrative single game of football in the world, with promotion earning Villa an estimated 170 million pounds ($215.51 million) in revenue.Norwich City and Sheffield United had already secured promotion to the top flight for next season after finishing in the top two positions in the second tier Championship. Villa, European champions in 1982, were relegated in 2016 and lost to Fulham in last year’s playoff final.El Ghazi opened the scoring just before the break with a diving header from Ahmed Elmohamady’s cross from the right.McGinn doubled the advantage in the 59th minute when a deflected shot from El Ghazi looped into the area. Derby keeper Kelle Roos came out but was unable to capture the ball under a challenge from McGinn, who bundled it home. Derby, managed by former Chelsea and England midfielder Frank Lampard, got back in the game when substitute Jack Marriott’s low shot was turned in by Waghorn and they piled on the pressure in the final minutes, but were unable to break through.Villa’s local-born midfielder Jack Grealish, who was close to leaving the club before the start of the season, showed his class throughout and was delighted with promotion. “I’m speechless. It was such a hard game… It means the world to go up, we know where this club belongs. I’ve stayed here and we’re back there now. I’ve led my boyhood team to the Premier League,” he said.A 10-match winning streak during the run-in propelled Smith’s Villa side into the playoffs where they got past West Midlands rivals West Bromwich Albion in the semi-finals. Smith, who began the season at Brentford and took over from Steve Bruce at Villa Park in October, said the club had an exciting future with the backing of owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens.“It feels very good. The lads are a terrific bunch. They take on different ideas, they deserve it. I believe pressure is what you put on yourself, we work hard every day, the only difference is expectation. We’ve got two owners have got a lot of money, and are in it for the long haul. The potential now is massive,” he said.
