You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Let us not forget our veteransBy Erika Spence and originally published on the Second Harvest Food Bank blog feedhopenow.orgChristina enlisted in the Air Force after high school. She remembers the sense of pride and accomplishment she felt after completing basic training. She went on to serve as a surgery tech in Desert Storm. After returning from war, she became sick and received a medical retirement. Retirement was a blessing because she was so ill, but also an unexpected disruption in her life. Within two weeks, she lost her job, her income and her personal identity.She didn’t have enough money to support herself. She needed a new game plan and enrolled in college. Christina had to decide between attending school, working and never seeing her kids or attending school and receiving assistance. The military taught her to be self-reliant, so it wasn’t easy to ask for help. Her family moved into public housing and received food from a local food pantry.“To change your life plans that quickly is a big deal,” Christina recalls. “Without the assistance I received, I do not know what I would have done.” Today, Christina pays the help forward. She volunteers at Second Harvest Food Bank every month with a special group of veterans from the Center of Recovery Education Veterans program. She gives back so that other veterans can get the temporary help they need through our network of 550 food pantries.When we think about the 550,000 Central Floridians who need food assistance each year, it’s important to remember that a full 20% of them are either active military personal or veterans who proudly served our country. When you needed them, they were there for you. Now they need your help during this difficult time in their lives.Please consider what you can contribute to help put more meals on the table for veterans like Christina and their families. Your generosity can make a very real difference.Thank you for caring, and thank you to all who have served our country in uniform.Related posts:Help Scout for Food on Veteran’s Day What the Bites Camera Action Program Means to our Local Vets If You Build It, They Will Come!

The refurbishment and re-modelling of 11-15 Grosvenor Crescent represented a unique opportunity to breathe new life into a terrace of Grade 2 Listed houses, which had suffered from years of unsophisticated intervention, and to combine it with a dynamic new contemporary addition. The original six storey houses were built in 1852, and had been converted into offices in the early 20th Century. They have now been returned to their original residential use as a series of multi-level Grand apartments with their own front doors, and upper level lateral apartments which maximise the inherent value of the historic building and its prime location.Save this picture!© Hufton + CrowThe five buildings within the terrace remain as separate entities at ground and first floor where entrances to the Grand apartments and the main communal entrance to the building reinvigorate the existing porticoed frontage. Lateral apartments on upper floors respect the original plan form by retaining party wall lines whilst enjoying a comfortable and logical flow of space through the residences.Save this picture!© Hufton + CrowThe existing building has been restored and where original features have been lost, the grandeur of the original interior architecture has been replaced, often with a contemporary language. The ambition was to see the best of the old sitting comfortably with contemporary additions. Portland stonework on the front elevation was repaired and cleaned. The introduction of a new double storey slate roof with dormer windows raised the ridge a fraction to increase headroom in the top floors giving every floor a spectacular volume. The materiality of the rear extension responds to the original building, using Portland Stone to define original Party Wall lines and handmade bricks to respond to the materiality of the Mews. Dark bronze anodised aluminium window frames and vertical louvres complete the sophisticated composition.Save this picture!© Hufton + CrowWest facing landscaped roof terraces have been introduced as the building steps in scale and drops towards the Mews.Internally, the elegance of existing staircases linking ground and first floors and the rear of the building has been recognised in a series of sensitive restorations. The existing rear wall of the main terrace has been retained and repaired and the connection between the old and the new is thoughtfully expressed through a series of internal glass roofed triple storey atrium spaces, crossed by contemporary bridges which complement and contrast old fabric with new.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!PlanStunning book matched marble clad walls rise through the spaces and contemporary lighting falls through the space to reinforce the volume. Following bomb damage during WWII, a structural steel frame had been inserted behind the façade of 14-15 Grosvenor Crescent. The lack of original features in this part of the building facilitated the introduction of a new vertical circulation core to serve upper level lateral apartments and lower levels housing a marble clad spa and pool, gym and wine store, car park, plant rooms and other back of house spaces, without interrupting the historic fabric of the building.Save this picture!© Hufton + CrowProject gallerySee allShow lessNON-Standard Hotel / Nefa ArchitectsSelected ProjectsAmerica’s Most Admired Architectural Schools 2020 RankedArchitecture News Share Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/927178/11-15-grosvenor-crescent-apartments-flanagan-lawrence Clipboard Architects: Flanagan Lawrence Area Area of this architecture project 2019 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/927178/11-15-grosvenor-crescent-apartments-flanagan-lawrence Clipboard 11-15 Grosvenor Crescent Apartments / Flanagan Lawrence “COPY” United Kingdom CopyAbout this officeFlanagan LawrenceOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsOn FacebookUnited KingdomPublished on October 28, 2019Cite: “11-15 Grosvenor Crescent Apartments / Flanagan Lawrence” 28 Oct 2019.

Annual poetry fundraising challenge returns for 2014

first_img The Poetry Challenge will be held on 5 October this year at the October Gallery in London’s Bloomsbury. The annual event encourages people to learn a poem by heart and recite it to an audience, raising money for charity.The event organisers hope that it will inspire others to run their own Poetry Challenge to raise funds for their favourite charities.The Poetry Challenge was set up in 1995 by author, activist and social inventor Nicholas Albery. He loved poetry and was the author of the best-selling Poem for the Day book.He established the Poetry Challenge as a means to raise funds for his favourite charities and to help others do the same.The royalties from the Poem for the Day book are donated to the Natural Death Centre, a charity which he founded with his wife Josefine Speyer.The Poetry Challenge continues to be held on the first Sunday of every October, despite Albery’s death in a car accident in 2001. His widow now runs it with Cornelia Broesskamp and Claudia Bolton to support their charities too.Entrance fee is by donation. Each participant has to download a sponsorship form and collect pledges in advance of the event.Last year’s event raised over £10,000.

Woman journalist abducted, held overnight in Mogadishu

first_img Organisation RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region October 25, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Woman journalist abducted, held overnight in Mogadishu News SomaliaAfrica News Help by sharing this information RSF_en March 2, 2021 Find out more RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists to go furthercenter_img Receive email alerts Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia Follow the news on Somalia News SomaliaAfrica February 24, 2021 Find out more News Zamzam Abdullahi Abdi, member of the governing board of the Somalia Women Journalists Association (Sowja), was abducted yesterday and detained overnight by unidentified armed individuals in Mogadishu before being released today, Reporters Without Borders said.”We welcome the fact that Abdi was released safe and sound, but her abduction reinforces the urgent need to rebuild a state in Somalia. We call on President Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed, as part of his new duties, to do justice to press freedom activists like her by heeding their struggle and their message,” the organisation said.Reporters Without Borders said there was no justification for the use of violence or threats against Abdi, who honoured her country by defending not only press freedom in a climate of anarchy, but also women and children whose situation is often precarious in Somalia.The organisation learned from sources in Mogadishu that two men and a woman armed with AK-47s and a pistol forced Abdi into a car near the Bakaraa market at about 5 p.m. yesterday, blindfolded her and took her somewhere in Mogadishu. At one point she was able to briefly speak to her husband by telephone and explain what had happened. She was freed at around 8 a.m. today.The exact motives for the kidnapping are not known. “I think I was abducted on account of my activities in defence of children, because my kidnappers told me stop talking about children’s rights,” she told the Somali Journalist Network (Sojon), a local press freedom group.In addition to being member of the Sowja, Abdi is also the deputy head of a Somali women’s group called COGWA, and the local representative of the African Network for the Prevention and Protection of Child Abuse and Neglect (ANPPCAN), based in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi. Married and the mother of girl, she has both Somali and Kenyan nationality.The kidnapping of civilians is common in Somalia, where militiamen are ready to execute abduction “contracts” for 200 US dollars.

The influence of eddy parameterizations on the transport of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current in coupled climate models

first_imgThe transport of the AntarcticCircumpolarCurrent (ACC) varies strongly across the coupled GCMs (general circulation models) used for the IPCC AR4. This note shows that a large fraction of this across-model variance can be explained by relating it to the parameterization of eddy-induced transports. In the majority of models this parameterization is based on the study by Gent and McWilliams (1990). The main parameter is the quasi-Stokes diffusivity κ (often referred to less accurately as ”thickness diffusion”). The ACC transport and the meridional density gradient both correlate strongly with κ across those models where κ is a prescribed constant. In contrast, there is no correlation with the isopycnal diffusivity κiso across the models. The sensitivity of the ACC transport to κ is larger than to the zonal wind stress maximum. Experiments with the fast GCM FAMOUS show that changing κ directly affects the ACC transport by changing the density structure throughout the water column. Our results suggest that this limits the role of the wind stress magnitude in setting the ACC transport in FAMOUS. The sensitivities of the ACC and the meridional density gradient are very similar across the AR4 GCMs (for those models where κ is a prescribed constant) and among the FAMOUS experiments. The strong sensitivity of the ACC transport to κ needs careful assessment in climatemodels.last_img read more

Mayor Jay Gillian: Beach Update, New Eagle Scouts, Road Work

first_imgThe following is Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian’s weekly update to citizens posted on Friday, Dec. 18.Dear Friends, The three-legged CRAB (Coastal Research Amphibious Buggy) surveys the beach at Seventh Street on Saturday, Dec. 5, in Ocean City, NJ.I’m happy to report that the north end beach replenishment project could be complete as early as Saturday. We learned this week that 920,000 of a planned 999,000 cubic yards of new sand now has been pumped onto Ocean City beaches. The project area will end at 12th Street, and the rebuilt beach will be tapered to meet the existing beach at 13th Street. After pumping is complete, crews will remove equipment next week.By the New Year, Ocean City will enjoy wide beaches and a healthy uninterrupted dune system from tip to tip. A south end beach replenishment project was completed in September, and dune grass is now in place there.I’d like to thank all residents and visitors for their patience while these vital projects were completed.Please join me in congratulating four young men who recently earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Frank Sheppard Faverzani, Eric Tin Yao Lam, Evan William Megargee, and Tanner Jack Mitzel represent the spirit of volunteerism that has always defined Ocean City.Faverzani assembled and refurbished 15 skateboards and provided helmets with each to the Boys and Girls Club of Camden. Lam assembled and installed a locking key box for the Ocean City Public Works to organize all of its equipment and vehicle keys. Megargee painted and refurbished 158 feet of fence (black with gold spires) and the entrance sign at Lakeside Memorial Park on the 400 block of Wesley Avenue. Mitzel assembled and replaced two dilapidated osprey stands in the marshes near Merion Park, a project which the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce awarded its environmentally friendly award for 2015.These new Eagle Scouts deserve our thanks for their contributions to the community.Paving crews will be working next week on Wesley Avenue between 21st Street and 24th Street, on Ninth Street between Ocean Avenue and Atlantic Avenue, and on Ocean Avenue between Eighth Street and Ninth Street. Weather permitting, the work will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, December 22 and 23. Traffic will be restricted on Wesley and Ocean avenues, and the one block of Ninth Street will be closed during paving. Please use caution and seek alternative routes. The work should be done in time for Christmas.Our community lost a dear friend this week. I would like to express heartfelt condolences from my family, the City team and the entire community to the family.Warm regards,Jay A. GillianMayorlast_img read more
