Help Orange County grow an urban tree canopy

first_img Please enter your comment! Share your ideas at a community meeting next month From the Orange County Public Information OfficeOrange County has been selected for a study about beneficially integrating trees into the County’s storm water management programs.  Join us at a community meeting on Tuesday, June 13th from 5:30 to 7 p.m. to share your vision for protecting, restoring and increasing Orange County’s tree canopy.  The meeting will be held in the Commission Chambers, First Floor, County Administration Center, 201 South Rosalind Ave., Orlando, 32801.The consultant for the study, Green Infrastructure Center (GIC), will provide some background on the value of trees in helping communities comply with storm water permits, reduce flooding, and meet surface water quality goals. GIC will present maps detailing current tree canopy coverage in unincorporated areas of the County. As contributors to the study, attendees will be asked to provide input on the following concepts:perception of current County tree canopy coverage [For more info and services, check out tree maintenance experts in Apopka.]specific locations in Orange County that need more tree canopytree-related practices led by citizens or local government that could be implemented but are not currently in place“Those living and working in unincorporated Orange County have a good perception of the environment around them and what improvements they’d like to see in their neighborhoods,” said Lori Cunniff, deputy director of Orange County’s Community, Environmental and Development Services Department. “They have an investment in what happens in their community and their input is valuable in the planning process.”Orange County is one of only three municipalities in Florida selected by the Florida Forest Service (FFS) to participate in the study sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service, which covers seven southeastern states. Funding for GIC’s technical assistance is being provided through a grant provided by the FFS.“This environmental strategy is intended to map, evaluate, protect and restore urban forests to achieve better stormwater management and clean water,” said Louis Shepherd, FFS coordinator of the Urban and Community Forestry Programs.Orange County is required to contribute by matching the funding awarded by the FFS grant.   As part of this match, Orange County is performing a tree inventory and analysis to help quantify the composition, health, and environmental and economic benefits of the urban forest in unincorporated areas. These efforts support a strategy in Orange County’s “Our Home for Life” community sustainability plan that seeks to promote urban forestry and expand tree canopy.For more information about the community meeting or the tree canopy and stormwater study, please contact David Jones via e-mail at [email protected] or via phone at 407-836-1434.

4 ways to make your home comfortable and safe for your…

first_img For millions of Americans, pets are a member of the family. They provide companionship and countless memories that last a lifetime. Having a pet-friendly home increases the likelihood that these memories will be positive.These tips can make pet ownership simpler, and create a safer, healthier environment for your four-legged companion.Pet-friendly flooringCarpeted flooring can be a challenge for pet owners. Carpet traps unpleasant odors and is difficult to clean. Hardwood, bamboo, laminate and other alternatives – when properly maintained – offer a surface that’s easier to clean, doesn’t trap allergens and doesn’t hide fur or other debris.Experts like Lumber Liquidators offer a wide selection of flooring options, so you’re sure to find a style and look that will complement your home and is perfect for your pet.A space to call their ownMany pets seek shelter when startled by loud noises. Whether it’s the clap of thunder or a boisterous guest, an unexpected noise can send your animal fleeing (or peeing). Having a dedicated space for your pet, be it a mudroom, doorless closet or comfy bed, provides a safe place for your animal during times of stress.Also, pets need a little down time every once in a while. A cozy nook away from direct sunlight provides a perfect place for them to relax and recharge.Picking the best paintEven the cleanest of pets can leave marks on your walls. Choosing the right paint can make the difference between a permanent stain and one that’s easily removed. Lower sheens can be difficult to clean, so opt for semi-gloss or satin.Also, depending on your climate, you may prefer a light or dark paint color. Light colors can help keep your pet cool by reflecting the sun, while darker colors absorb the sun’s heat and can warm the home environment.Protect your curious petPets are inherently curious. If it’s within reach, chances are it will be investigated with a detective’s attention. Even if the food is safe for pets, the packaging may be harmful. Medications, cleaners and cosmetics should also be kept on high shelves or behind a latched cabinet.Most pet owners know to keep food and toxins off accessible surfaces, but it’s easy to forget something on a bedside table or the edge of a counter.Pets require time, attention and love. They will return the favor more naturally in an environment that’s comfortable and safe. Consider these tips for creating a pet-friendly home.

Does CNN’s quiz really test your knowledge of Christianity?

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 CNN is using a quiz to promote its new shows, “Finding Jesus” and “Believer.” The quiz is portrayed as a test of one’s knowledge of Christianity and the Bible.But is it?Let’s look at the questions CNN is asking (these are multiple-choice questions):Which South Asian country did Thomas reach?Which dish is prepared in massive amounts in Haux, France, on what’s known as Easter Monday?Methuselah is the longest-living person mentioned. How old was he when he died?Which common household item do Norwegians hide to keep evil spirits at bay on Christmas eve?Which body of water did Jesus walk on?How long was Pope Urban VII in power?In the Belgian town of Binche, which objects are thrown at revelers on Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras)?Which European city is home to a relic purported to be the veil worn by the Virgin Mary at Jesus’ birth?Which African nation has a church that purportedly houses the Ark of the Covenant?Which of these animal has become to symbolizes immortality?At the end you get your score and then are told, “If you want to brush up on your knowledge of Christianity, tune into the CNN Original Series “Finding Jesus” at 9 ET Sunday nights, followed by “Believer” at 10.”Sorry CNN, but there are only two questions (#3 and #5), that have anything to do with the Bible.

Please enter your email address here December 30, 2018 at 2:05 pm Donnie, what you describe reminds me of the old saying, “we can’t see the forest for the trees.” It is not the trees that are the problem as much as how we relate to them. And remember, when we climb to the top of that ‘particular’ tree; no matter the difficulty getting there, the view is usually grand. You have been blessed with a perceptive heart. God bless you, Chaz Please enter your name here InspirationBy Don Lindsey2019 is rapidly approaching and while I’m looking forward to a new year with new possibilities and goals to meet, I’m also looking back on what I’ve learned this past year and celebrating the gifts that God has put into my life.For starters, I learned that my family and the Lord are the two biggest driving forces in my life.  My relationship with God has had its ups and downs this year with me refusing to hand over my stresses to Him and then being upset when it feels as if nothing is going right.  I have gotten a lot better at relaxing enough to put my troubles in His hands and when I do, I notice a peace within me that I do not have when I’m not walking with God the way I know I should.  It doesn’t take much.  Praying, giving thanks and trying to be spiritually aware enough to follow the signs that Jesus sends me has always worked very well, so the plan this coming year is to do my best to stay in constant contact through prayer with my Creator.Another thing I’ve discovered that works well for me when times are tough is leaning into my family.  It’s amazing to me how these people always find a way to pick me up no matter how low I am.  My kids can get me to think, laugh and almost cry from pride on a regular basis.  Sure, they’re children and as such, there are some trying times, but watching them grow up and seeing the way that they’re working to be productive and responsible adults is one of the greatest gifts I’ve been given.  There is not a day that goes by that I don’t feel grateful for these silly, thoughtful and kind-hearted young folks.Truth is, no matter how much I feel like I’m struggling, being surrounded by love can get anyone through just about any bad situation.  The best example that I can give of that is the love that my wife Tammy shows me on a daily basis.  I have so much respect for how she puts our family above all else and how hard she works for everything that we have.  I have seen her struggle so much this year with a workload that has been more than overwhelming.  She comes home at night so exhausted and frazzled only to get up the next morning to do it all over again.  Through all of that, she still manages to be my moral compass at times reminding me that God always has a plan.  When I talk about putting all of my stress into the hands of the Lord, she’s the one that has taught me to do that.  My life is so much better with her in it and I’ll never be able to express just how thankful I am for her.While 2018 had its issues, it was also chocked full of great memories and a realization that God is always at work.  I get so hung up on what’s in front of me that sometimes I miss that and this year my focus will be on noticing and celebrating the blessings that God gives me as they happen so that I can get the most out of those situations.  It starts with enjoying every second I have with my loved ones and ends with letting God work out the tough stuff.  As long as I can do that, then 2019 will be even better than 2018.To anyone reading this, I wish you a happy and safe New Year. God bless. 2 COMMENTSlast_img read more

How To Write An Application For Florida Colleges

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter By Judy NelsonGetting into an American college can be challenging, so preparing yourself for what’s to come is crucial. Your application is the most important part of the process. Before deciding where you want to study and what you want to do, you must get access to this application essential package.For example – did you know that for many colleges, your personal essay makes up more than 50% of your final entry grade? Did you know that applying through Common App ensures you higher chances of being accepted into your first school of choice?Here are some of your most important tips about applying to colleges in Florida.Choosing your desired method of applyingUniversities might offer different methods of applying to their schools. Here are three of the most important and widely used:Institutional applications – that means, you are applying to your college of choice individually. You will most likely be downloading the application form and completing it thoroughly. Each university has different requirements, so you must pay careful attention to each detail.The Common App – this is a platform covering over 700 colleges in the U.S. and throughout Florida. You can find almost any university here and prepare one application for all. On top of your personal essay and standardized application, you’ll need to prepare an extra essay prompt (or more) for each one of the schools you’re applying for. Schools on Common App are sometimes more selective and might require recommendation letters.The Coalition App – this is another platform similar to Common App which includes 113 schools from the U.S., including Florida. The students get five essay prompts to choose from and a deadline as to when to complete them. You should also include your extra-curricular activities (and all other specific details) in the personal information section of the platform.Writing your college essayYour personal essay is a crucial part of your application, so make sure that you’re taking enough time to prepare what’s necessary. If you’re about to search I just need college admission essay help on google, that could work, but you could also prepare ahead of time to avoid the rush. In any case, there are many student paper writers who can assist you with your task and turn your application into a winner. In case you prefer to work on it by yourself, here are some of the most important steps to consider.Read the application instructions, don’t rush into the assignmentsStart with a catchy introductionBe yourself, don’t try to become someone elseAvoid using any clichéInclude examples that support your ideasMap out a structured essay planAsk someone to review your workPreparing to submit your applicationBuilding an accurate resumeNext, you must create a resume that stands out. If you don’t have a good resume, chances are you won’t be taken too seriously. Make sure to include everything in your resume, such as your phone number, e-mail address, etc. Your community service involvement and awards are also important, as they’ll show the school how involved you’ve been in the local community (thus increasing your chances of being accepted).Storing your informationBelieve it or not, storing your access codes into one big folder is a must-do. You could create a general folder named ‘Universities’ and create smaller folders inside it for each college in Florida separately. Under each individual university folder, you could create sub-folders again, to keep track of each college’s: admission decision, financial aid offer, scholarship offer, housing offer, etc.Also, if you’ve decided to apply to more than one college, make sure you write down all of your access codes into one Word document. It would be a shame to lose access to your most recent account and have no means of getting the access codes back. Also, try not to store all of this information on your computer.Tracking your applications Since you will be applying to multiple colleges in Florida, you will lose track of all of your applications if you are not organized. So, make sure that you track your progress, and know which ones you’ve already applied to. Include each university’s requirements in their folder of interest, including ACT/SAT scores, your application status, the documents you’ve already sent, etc.Sending documentsThe next step is sending the actual documents to your schools of interest. This includes your CSS Profile (which should be completed way in advance), ACT/SAT/TOEFL scores, high-school transcripts, and letters of recommendation. Make sure you take enough time to finish each part of the process, as it might take you awhile to gather all the documentation. When it comes to your letter of recommendation, for example, you should request help from your professors long before the deadline. They must have enough time to think about their letter and write it down. You cannot rush them into the process.Respecting deadlines Make sure you respect all of the deadlines. Some universities in Florida might work on a rolling admissions basis, while others might have strict deadlines. In any case, don’t miss any deadline, ensure that you are on top of each of your assignment. Stay productive and work hard to get what you want.Judy Nelson is a student activist and blogger.

Aurelien Rougerie’s big hitting four minutes vs Scotland

first_imgWednesday Feb 10, 2010 Aurelien Rougerie’s big hitting four minutes vs Scotland Frances big winger Aurelien Rougerie made quite an impact against Scotland on the weekend. In less than five minutes he managed to put in two huge hits, injuring himself in the process and ruling out the chance of being selected to play Ireland.The Clermont wing hadnt played for his country in about two years, so was clearly pumped up as he chased the kickoff and timed the great hit on Kelly Brown perfectly. The statement of intent backfired though.Unfortunately Rougerie came off worse, needing treatment on his arm and shoulder before soldiering on. Undeterred, a minute or so later he flew into another Scottish player, doing more damage to himself.The kamikaze winger took the full impact of Johnnie Beatties shoulder to the jaw in a horrible looking collision that effectively ended his match. He did stay on for a minute or so, but when the ball came to him out wide, he dropped it and threw in the towel, less than five minutes into the game.The injury to his neck is less serious than initially thought, but he underwent tests on Monday evening and will be out of action for two to three weeks.It was a long wait for him to get back into the French side, and sadly for him, two big collisions in the space of a few minutes ended it. Vincent Clerc replaced him, and will stay in the side for the big match against Ireland this weekend in Paris.Alexis Palisson will also play, as debutant Benjamin Fall is also out injured. Julien Malzieu from Clermont, and Jean-Baptiste Poux also join the squad.“You don’t change a winning team,” said coach Marc Lievremont. “Playing Vincent Clerc from the start shouldn’t cause a debate, there was a lot of discussion on who to play on the left wing.“We decided to go with the versatility and left foot of Alexis Palisson.“We know the qualities of Julien Malzieu but it seemed interesting to us to have the presence of Alexis alongside Clement Poitrenaud.” :: Related Posts :: Bastareaud brace helps France to win over Scotland Aurelien Rougerie tribute ahead of the Top 14 Final Time: 03:47ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

New Fijian wardance performed vs Scotland – The I Bole

first_imgFriday Jul 6, 2012 New Fijian wardance performed vs Scotland – The I Bole If you watched the Fiji vs Scotland game recently you will have noted that through the shakey camerawork and occasional throw backs to black and white TV, we got to see an all new prematch wardance, which is called the I Bole, and replaces the Cibi. Fiji did away with their traditional Cibi recently, having replaced it with the new I Bole, which seems to have a lot more energy, and is in fact more fitting for what is about to take place.The story goes that the original Cibi was first performed on the rugby field back in 1939 for a tour of New Zealand, when then captain Ratu Sir George Cakobau felt that his team should have something to match the Haka of the All Blacks.It has perhaps been used incorrectly though, as the word Cibi actually means a celebration of victory by warriors, whereas Bole is the acceptance of a challenge. The latter was composed by Ratu Manoa Rasigatale, and is explained as follows.I’m challenging you to be uprooted, yes, it will be done, let’s turn them up side down. I’m ready, you think I’m afraid of you, you can’t break my defence. You’re only a hen, I’m the rooster, let’s fight and you’ll see. I don’t sleep and will watch you. My strength can reach the crushing of the waves, I will not be drowned, you think you’ll defeat me by drowning? Your fence is only made of wawamere creapers, It’s easy to untangle. I can uproot you, I can uproot you, yes it will be achieved.You can watch the Fiji vs Scotland full match again hereADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Traditional wardances Related Articles 263 WEEKS AGO Southland Boys upset Otago Boys as Hakas… 289 WEEKS AGO Emotional Hakas farewell Jonah Lomu at final… 296 WEEKS AGO History repeats itself as All Blacks Haka… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Lions make five changes, Wallabies receive fitness boost ahead of 2nd Test

first_imgThursday Jun 27, 2013 Lions make five changes, Wallabies receive fitness boost ahead of 2nd Test The Lions and Wallabies teams for the second Test of the British and Irish Lions tour of Australia have been announced. Both sides feature changes to those that played in the first game, some through injury and other’s based on form. The Lions starting XV comprises five changes to the side that won in Brisbane last Saturday.Scrum-half Ben Youngs is promoted from the bench to replace Mike Phillips. He joins brother Tom, who plays his second Test at hooker, while flanker Dan Lydiate, who captained the Lions against the Rebels on Tuesday night, replaces Tom Croft and wing Tommy Bowe takes over from Alex Cuthbert on the right wing following his return to full fitness.Geoff Parling replaces Paul O’Connell, who suffered a fracture to his right arm in the 1st Test while Makovina Vunipola takes over Alex Corbisiero, who strained a calf muscle in the same game.On the bench there are five changes with Ryan Grant, Sean O’Brien, Conor Murray, Tom Croft and Alex Cuthbert earning spots alongside Richard Hibbard, Dan Cole and Owen Farrell.“Several players have put their hands up this week and have forced their way into the Test side while several players have returned to fitness,” said Head Coach Warren Gatland.“That is typical of Lions tours. We want players to constantly push for selection, we then select who is on form and who is available. Based on that we have selected a squad that is capable of winning the Test and securing the series.”The Wallabies have had big boosts as Christian Leali’ifano and Adam Ashley-Cooper have both recovered from a head knock and shoulder problem respectively.

Francisco Chaparro red carded and banned for 10 weeks for tip tackle

first_imgTuesday Feb 18, 2014 Francisco Chaparro red carded and banned for 10 weeks for tip tackle Newport Gwent Dragons replacement prop Francisco Chaparro has been suspended for ten weeks following his red card for a dangerous tackle in the RaboDirect PRO12 match between Leinster and the Dragons on Friday evening. He has the right to appeal. Chaparro cleared through the ruck by lifting Leinster replacement scrumhalf Isaac Boss, turning him past horizontal and then dumping him on his back with a fair amount of force. The Ireland number nine was clearly winded, and the referee sent the Argentine off after a TMO consultation.Earlier today an independant PRO12 disciplinary committee, chaired by Pamela Woodman with Iain Goodall and Douglas Hunter, viewed video footage of the incident and listened to submissions by and on behalf of the player.They determined that the offence committed, contrary to Law 10.4 (j), was at the top end of the IRB’s scale of seriousness. In reaching their decision they took into account aggravating factors, including the need for a deterrent for that type of tackle, along with mitigating factors such as the player’s previous good record, and conduct at the hearing.Law 10.4 (j) Lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground whilst that player’s feet are still off the ground such that the player’s head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground is dangerous play.Chaparro is suspended for ten weeks, which runs until midnight, Sunday 27th April 2014. ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
