DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply I know that this info I am writing about, is not comforting to women who are of child bearing age, or those who are already pregnant women, but scientists have actually discovered that the Zika Virus fights off cancer. So the Zika Virus can be both deadly and horrible to unborn fetuses, and on the other hand, of benefit to humans as an cancer fighter. Strange. TAGSMosquitoesOrange CountyOrange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson Previous articleApopka moves forward with emergency debris removalNext articleCity signs new storm debris removal contractor Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR September 22, 2017 at 7:59 pm Another time I tried to have fish in the pond the neighbor’s Brazillan Pepper Tree dropped pepper berries into the water and poisoned the fish. It had to be that, I am sure, because I saw that the berries had blown into the pond, and I had not even considered that could happen. Holy cow what next? Guess I won’t be standing outside with my mouth open looking up in awe at the Milky Way and the Big Dipper. They used to come around here all the time back when I had a koi fish pond, and it used to make me so mad when they sprayed for mosquitoes, because it killed off my fish. I never knew when they were coming around, and they would ride down our street in a truck with a fogger and the fog would be all over the area, and would stink! I think it was malathion that they sprayed. Pretty sure that is what it was. I got more fish, goldfish, that were cheaper, but eventually gave up on the them too, as what happened next was that frogs kept jumping in the pond, and laying an enormous amount of gross looking black eggs across the pond surface, and the fish kept eating the frog eggs until they over ate and croaked, and the frogs keep croaking all night long too, and some would stay on our back sliding glass door catching night flying bugs, and stare at us, and jump on us, as we walked out the back door, or jump out of the orange tree onto my head……I said that the pond had to go, after dipping out the frog eggs all the time, with the screen pool net and the frogs still persisted laying those gross eggs. It did sound like real backwoods country though.center_img Please enter your comment!

Mama Mia Reply From Orange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonIn response to a recent spike in local mosquito population, Orange County Mosquito Control (OCMC) will treat approximately 85,000 acres of Orange County by air starting as early as 9 p.m. Monday, September 25th, weather permitting. Mosquito Control officials attribute the recent rise in mosquito population to rain produced by Hurricane Irma. The following areas have been identified for aerial treatment: Apopka, Bithlo, Christmas, Moss Park and Wedgefield.  It is not necessary to take additional precautions to safeguard livestock, pets or gardens. Officials report that aerial treatment remains the most effective way to combat high mosquito populations across large acreage and areas not accessible or manageable by ground.Mosquito Control officials report that mosquito populations, particularly in areas not accessible by vehicle continue to rise, elevating the risk of mosquito-borne illnesses that can affect both people and their pets, livestock, as well as nuisance mosquitoes. 26 traps placed throughout Orange County captured more than 7400 mosquitoes this past week – a 550 percent increase in mosquito population (week of September 11 and September 18). Locally, mosquitoes may transmit illnesses/diseases to include West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis and Dog Heartworm, as well as the Zika virus.The map below includes the areas identified for aerial treatment.While not all mosquitoes carry illness or disease, rising populations alone can be a nuisance and distract from the ability to enjoy the outdoors.The decision follows as other Central Florida counties also implement aerial spraying. Most recently, Orange County turned to aerial spraying in July of 2017 in response to heavy rainfall, but prior to the county had not needed to utilize aerial spraying since 2011.Orange County Mosquito Control personnel use several techniques to help control the various mosquito species in addition to aerial treatment, while being sensitive to the environment and other insects. All control materials used are approved by the EPA and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The Centers for Disease Control has created a website specific to aerial treatment that includes frequently asked questions for residents to review if interested. These efforts strategically take place during the evening and do not include the application of materials known to be harmful to humans, animals or other insects, including bees when applied according to the label.Efforts include:• Source reduction. Eliminating mosquito habitats, such as discarded containers and rain gutters.• Larval mosquito control using the appropriate methods for the habitat.• Adult mosquito control using insecticides by ground or by air.• Community education efforts related to preventing mosquito bites by wearing EPA-registered insect repellents and protective clothing (long-sleeved shirts and long pants).At this time, Orange County Mosquito Control personnel ask residents to Tip, Toss and Cover!• Tip over or toss containers like flower pots or tin cans that collect small amounts of water – many mosquitoes, particularly those that can transmit Zika virus, dengue fever and chikungunya, develop in an environment as small as a bottle cap.• Cover skin with clothing and/or repellent that contains DEET. Cover windows and open doors with screens to prevent mosquitoes from coming inside.Residents are encouraged to call 311 if rising mosquito populations become nuisance or if you have questions. Residents can find additional information on-line at ocfl.net/mosquito. 4 COMMENTS Then later after I had gotten rid of my fish pond they never came around to spray for the mosquitoes. I can’t remember the last time a fogger came around here. I did get some spray myself and sprayed when the mosquitoes got really bad after they started lecturing about the Zika Virus.

PivotWoodStructureCraftEngineering – Architectural & FreeformWoodEGGERWood-based materials in EGGER HeadquartersWoodLunawoodThermo Timber and Industrial ThermowoodText description provided by the architects. Tower House is an experiment in vertical living. A typical bungalow of 400 square meters is squeezed into a footprint of 6.5 x 12.5m, forcing the program up five stories rather than spread along the ground. Despite the stacked floors, the design generates the experience of living in a house, with a diversity of spatial types throughout its section. At the same time, it takes advantage of the benefits of moving vertically with efficiently organized services, views across the city, and greater potentials for both stack and cross ventilation.Save this picture!Axonometry / ConceptA concrete frame provides the skeleton, while central vertical circulation allows openings on all sides, and an outward looking entry to every room. Walls wrap the interior spaces, while balconies move around on each floor to open new vistas. Rooms are treated as pockets within the larger framework, minimizing the need for air conditioning and maintaining the connection to the outdoors. While balconies bring a corner of outdoor space into the room, punched windows around the wall create an intimate experience, whose deeply protected view is found only from a seated position.Save this picture!© Sachin BandukwalaThe design balances two driving forces: conveying a house not a tower, and using verticality for an efficient, climate responsive building. The central stair, critical for both, is the core of the design. It organises services and treats vertical movement as part of the house. Each room opens from it and moves back toward it. On first and fourth floors, glass panels reveal the stair and further envelop it inside the rooms. As a passive cooling element, the semi-open stair draws air through the house, while ventilation in each room can be controlled by opening windows. A ceramic rain screen filters light and shields the stair from water, protecting the privacy of the space.Save this picture!Axonometry / Efficient buildingProject gallerySee allShow lessBeyond / SAOTASelected ProjectsRoyal Alberta Museum / DIALOGSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Ahmedabad, Guyarat, IndiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

first_imgThe Brown Berets held a National Day of Action across the country on Sept. 28. Events were held from Fresno and Sacramento in California to Chicago, Oklahoma City, Houston and El Paso. Houston march, Sept. 28.The focus was white supremacy and solidarity with the families who lost loved ones in the racist killings in El Paso. In each city the seven key points of unity agreed to last summer by La National Mesa de los Brown Berets were read aloud. (See end of article.)Here in Houston, as the march passed stores and gas stations, chants rang out of “Viva la Raza!” and “Viva Zapata!” People on the streets responded with raised fists: “Que viva!”Cynthia Rivera read: “Brown Berets, leftist allies and members of our communities have had enough. … We must unite! The Indigenous people of this land, regardless of what the United States labels us, must come together and fight for our children who today sit in cages. We must fight for our families who today are being ripped apart, fight for our children who today are being shot, not just by white supremacists but by police officers. … It is time to fight back! Ya basta!”Moving testimony was given by Janie Torres, the younger sister of Jose Campos Torres, who was beaten senseless by Houston cops in 1976 on Cinco de Mayo and thrown into a bayou to die. “Let’s see if the wetback can swim,” the cops said.Revolutionary poetry by Torres’ nephew, Johnny Torres, was warmly welcomed. One poem was based on the Mexican legend of La Llorana, a mother who out of desperation drowned her children and then spent the rest of her life crying and looking for them. “This is for every Indigenous mother who has lost her child in the crossfire of this war. Our mothers never sleep, they still roam the night, looking for their missing children. …  They can’t fight this war alone. The president terrorist damaged all the mothers’ hearts with one stone. Some people don’t ask about the lost children, but La Llorona does.”Greetings of solidarity were given by Chiwo Luzolo of the African People’s Socialist Party. Members of the Nation of Islam, the Museo Guadalupe Aztlan and Workers World Party were in attendance.The names of each person murdered in the El Paso Walmart on Aug. 3 were read, followed by a moment of silence. The rally ended with Milin Andy Cuetzpalin drumming and singing an Indigenous Mexican song asking for strength and protection.   The points of unity of the Brown Berets include:  “Armed self-defense if necessary to protect our families, our children and our communities from white supremacists.” “Education — We are advocating for a real education that teaches the children who they truly are and how enriching their history is. How this is stolen land! How people from Europe invaded this land. How this land was chopped up and sold through a capitalist system and how today the U.S. imperialist nation continues to profit from our labor, our incarceration and even our death because we do NOT have an educational system that is teaching the truth!” “Culture — We should not be ashamed of our communities, languages, food, music and artistic impressions. We encourage our communities to express themselves and tell the true story of the Chicana and Chicano community.” “Economics — Under capitalism our people have been subjugated and exploited for hundreds of years while serving the white ruling class whose luxuries were bought with our blood. We must establish a new sustainable economic system that serves the needs of the people and not the desires of a handful of rich people sitting on their hoard of stolen treasure.” “Spiritual — We believe in the spiritual ways and practices of our indigenous ancestors. We must boycott and protest leaders of the faith community that support white supremacist policies and the attacks on our people, whether documented or not. This includes support for our LGBTQ+ communities whom for decades have been the target of religious bigots. Ya Basta!” “Science/Environmentalism — Mother Earth is under attack. Climate change is real! We believe that unless we play an active role, we as humans will be destroyed. Ya Basta!” “Electoral power — Politicians who wish to deny us the rights they are so proud to hold, who still steal from us, and who seek to deny us our humanity must be held accountable for their hypocrisy and inhumanity. If nothing is done, then there is only one solution. REVOLUTION! We have had many great revolutionaries throughout our history. And to quote from Emiliano Zapata, ‘If there is not justice for the people, let there be no peace for the government.’  We call on our allies, from Brown Berets nationwide, to other leftists to unite, organize, and mobilize our gente, to join us in this struggle because we are all in this together.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Dr. Akila Gibbs (l) and Michael Coxson (r). Photo courtesy Pasadena Senior CenterMichael Coxson, 66, a member of the Pasadena Senior Center, shared insights yesterday about the Black Lives Matter movement that has seen a resurgence since the May 25 death in Minneapolis of George Floyd as a result of police brutality.“I think the whole thing is remarkable,” Coxson said. “I’m happy to see the collaboration of people – multiracial and multigenerational – coming together on issues that are very dear to my heart.”Throughout his life, and the lives of generations before him, he said he has always stood for what is right, and he wishes there were even more organized groups involved in bringing attention to the issue and working on a solution.He has seen his personal share of racial discrimination, even as an older adult in the recent past.“I put money down on a home, and the realtor saw to it that the sale was never completed and that I never received the deed.”He has words of advice for other older adults who face discrimination of any kind.“Take a deep breath. History does not have to repeat itself. Look for the group with the track record for addressing the issue you want to solve,” he said. “It’s your heart, not age, that keeps everything going.”He said he will never just give up.“I have a lot of faith in what I see happening currently. I want my grandchildren to learn from this and see that their grandfather has goals and is moving forward, despite obstacles.”Coxson, who also is a volunteer at the Pasadena Senior Center, has a long history as an advocate for change not only for America’s black population, but for all people who historically have been disenfranchised. As a college student involved in the debating team and student government at the University of Pennsylvania, he fought for the rights of all people, not just one group.“Michael Coxson is an example of an older adult who has created a living legacy and continues to advocate for social justice,” said Akila Gibbs, executive director of the Pasadena Senior Center.Through his own experiences, Coxson believes a higher power can affect change when humans cannot.“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, ‘God is able to give you the power to endure that which cannot be changed, so why be anxious? Come what may, God is able.’”Even during the COVID-19 crisis, the Pasadena Senior Center continues to be a resource for frank discussions about every topic under the sun, from current events to staying active to cooking, music and more.While older adults are in isolation at home, many of them lonesome and depressed, Gibbs reminds everyone that even though they can’t gather at the center’s coffee bar and other areas for daily frank discussions and camaraderie, a virtual, online social hour every Tuesday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. provides an opportunity for people to share ideas and opinions.“The online social hour has become a natural place for older adults to share what’s on their minds,” said Gibbs. “We are happy to provide this forum as an avenue for meaningful dialog.”For more information or to join the free social hour on Zoom, visit www.pasadenaseniorcenter.org/social-hour or call 626-685-6702.For more information about Pasadena Senior Center programs and services, including online options for classes, events and activities during the COVID-19 crisis, visit www.pasadenaseniorcenter.org or call 626-795-4331.The center, at 85 E.

It included several data sources to track a large number of loan characteristics and a summary measure of risk—the stressed default rate. One of the key findings of the paper is that mortgage risk had already risen in the 1990s, planting the seeds of the financial crisis well before the actual event. The findings also cast doubt on explanations of the crisis that focus on low-credit-score borrowers, the paper indicated. According to FHFA, there is still no comprehensive account of the changes in mortgage risk that produced the worst foreclosure wave since the Great Depression. The paper by FHFA is an effort to fill that gap, covering essentially the entire market for home purchase loan originations in the United States from 1990 to 2017. Data sources also include the full set of home mortgages guaranteed by the government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the GSEs). To FHFA’s knowledge, this is the first time the entire GSE book has been used in publicly-available research on mortgage risk. The paper shows that across the entire market, the average Combined Loan to Value (CLTV) on new home purchase loans increased substantially in the first half of the 1990s, and the average Debt-to-Income (DTI) trended sharply higher starting in 1992.  The stressed default rate for the purchase loan market was already above the levels seen in the 1990s, with the largest increase for loans bundled into private-label securities (PLS) by 2000. It also noted that credit standards across the market eased in the early and mid-2000s. To cleanly identify changes in credit supply, the analysis is limited to loans for which lenders and investors fully bear the credit risk – private sector loans with no government guarantee and no private mortgage insurance. Data also revealed that mortgage risk for the market as a whole dropped and then swung back up between 1990 and 1995, followed by a gradual upward trend through 2003 and a steep rise over 2004-2006. Mortgage risk declined sharply as credit standards tightened in the wake of the housing bust. In recent years, the risk measure has edged higher, but as of 2017 it remained near the bottom of the range observed since 1990, the paper noted.  The shift in the stressed default rate over the first half of the 1990s is reflective of factors such as tightening of mortgage lending standards during the second half of 1990 and throughout 1991, likely in response to the 1990-91 recession, followed by a considerable easing of standards in 1993 and 1994. The tightening occurred partially due to lenders clamping down on loans with less than full documentation, according to researchers at FHFA. Mortgage rates were cited as one of the factors that influenced stressed default rate. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate fell from roughly 10 percent in 1990 to 7.3 percent in 1993. This was in response to a substantial easing of monetary policy. In 1994, as the Federal Reserve reversed course by raising the rate to more than 1 percentage point. These changes in mortgage rates led to a drop in the average DTI through 1993 and then boosted it in 1994, which showed through to the stressed default rate. Moreover, with the decline in rates, many borrowers switched to 15- and 20-year loans, which are notably less risky than 30-year loans. In conclusion, the paper stated that in today’s market, the overall risk is “near all-time lows, despite high average DTIs and CLTVs, as risky product features have largely disappeared and average credit scores remain elevated.” It added that this highlights that the post-crisis regulatory environment succeeded, at least through 2017, in limiting mortgage risk.
