Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Update: The Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive remains closedIn some areas of the Lake Apopka North Shore, water levels dropped by about three inches over two weeks. Many areas remain underwater.Repairs are underway at the St. Johns River Water Management District’s Lake Apopka North Shore, which experienced damage due to Hurricane Irma. As water levels subside and assessments are completed, the district will provide a weekly update on the status of repairs and recreation at the Lake Apopka North Shore.To date, about 640 tons, or 32 truckloads, of fill material has been delivered to repair a 357-foot breach in a lake-side levee. This temporary repair, which is about 50 percent complete, allows the district to manage water levels on the rest of the property.Due to current rainfall and expected future rainfall related to Tropical Storm Nate, additional repairs may be required to help stabilize the roads/levees so that they can support heavy equipment.The installation of a floating barrier to minimize additional damage from wave action was completed. This will remain in place until the slopes can be reinforced with rip-rap or concrete rubble.The district continues to monitor water levels on the Ocklawaha Chain of Lakes. Once lakes Apopka, Dora and Beauclair all return to normal levels, the district will begin slowly pumping water from the Lake Apopka North Shore. Depending on lake levels and rainfall due to Tropical Storm Nate, this could begin as early as next week. Any pumping will occur slowly to avoid additional damage to already saturated roads and levees.In some parts of the Lake Apopka North Shore, where gauges could be accessed, water levels dropped by about three inches over two weeks. Many areas remain underwater.District staff have confirmed that all observation towers remain standing and are in good condition.Understanding that the area is a popular outdoor recreation destination, the Red Trail, off County Road 448A, and the McDonald Canal Boat Ramp, are open.To ensure public safety, and minimize potential damage to saturated roads, no other openings are planned at this point due to flooding and the continued presence of heavy equipment. The Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive and nonmotorized Lake Apopka Loop Trail remain closed. As soon as the district determines that the public can safely access an area, it will open.For continuing updates on district operations and recreational announcements, visit the district’s website, www.sjrwmd.com.

Please enter your email address here To get you in the spirit, here are 6 fun facts about the history of Independence Day, “The Star Spangled Banner” and other patriotic items.1. Why Red, White & Blue?The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice (Source).2. Independence Day is Really July 2nd?John Adams believed that July 2nd was the correct date on which to celebrate the birth of American independence.  That was the day the Second Continental Congress voted on the resolution to declare independence.  Adams reportedly would turn down invitations to appear at July 4th events in protest. Adams and Thomas Jefferson both died on July 4, 1826–the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence (Source).3. When Did Independence Day Become a National Holiday?In 1870, almost a hundred years after the Declaration was written, Congress first declared July 4 to be a national holiday as part of a bill to officially recognize several holidays, including Christmas. Further legislation about national holidays, including July 4, was passed in 1939 and 1941 (Source).4. What patriotic tune used to be a drinking song?“The Star-Spangled Banner” was originally a poem by Francis Scott Key titled, “The Defence of Fort McHenry,” penned after he witnessed that Maryland fort bombarded by the British during the War of 1812. It was later put to the music of an English drinking tune called “To Anacreon in Heaven,” and officially adopted as the national anthem in 1931 (Source).5. How much money is spent on fireworks?Independence Day is a red, white and boom holiday with $311.7 million in fireworks in 2015 (Source).6. What city has the oldest Independence Day celebration?The oldest continuous Independence Day celebration in the United States is the 4th of July Parade in Bristol, Rhode Island; it began in 1785.

Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply Bulls, elephants and other large animals… oh my!InspirationBy Charles TowneBack on the old home place we never owned a bull. We usually kept a cow for milk, a pig or two for slaughtering, a couple of horses, and chickens for eggs, and an occasional chicken dinner. but no bull.In my somewhat eventful life I have been chased by a broad assortment of critters. A disgruntled elephant was the largest. A bull elk with blood in his eye almost got me.   Chased by a horde of bald faced hornets, some of which caught me, chased by a dog or three, and yes, I was chased by a very ticked-off bull once, but that is another story. The fact that I am still taking up space on planet earth should tell you that I outran most of those varmints. Daddy had a farmer friend who owned a big, old, mean bull. That bull was one dangerous animal until the farmer came up with an idea.Now this was many years ago when many of the farms didn’t have electricity, but the farmer fixed that belligerent bull, as well as the electricity deficit at the same time by making a treadmill powered generator. He would lead that bull up onto the treadmill, throw a lever, and the treadmill would start to slowly turn just by the weight of the bull. As the treadmill turned, the bull would walk, and as the bull walked the treadmill turned, ad infinitum. As the bull walked and the treadmill turned the generator started to gen, or whatever it is that generators do, and the farmer had electric lights in his barn.Pretty darned clever if I must say so, and that bull was so tired after walking for a few hours he lost all his desire to create mischief.  I mean, that mean old bull walked until he was too pooped to pop.I suppose Papa God could treat us that way but He gave us free will which to my way of thinking was pretty darned considerate, if you know what I mean.Live fully,Love openly,And make a difference, todayCharles Towne is a longtime Apopka resident, member of Insp!re Church and a published author.

first_img TAGSBack to School 2018High Schooltheconversation.com Previous articleWhy I look for quality over quantity when it comes to friendsNext articleMissing Person Alert: Elderly South Apopka man missing Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your comment! Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Back to School 2018By David Yeager, Associate professor, the University of Texas at Austin and first published on theconversation.com.This month, more than 4 million students across the nation will begin high school.Many will do well.But many will not.Consider that nearly two-thirds of students will experience the “ninth-grade shock,” which refers to a dramatic drop in a student’s academic performance.Some students cope with this shock by avoiding challenges. For instance, they may drop rigorous coursework. Others may experience a hopelessness that results in failing their core classes, such as English, science, and math.This should matter a great deal to parents, teachers, and policymakers. Ultimately it should matter to the students themselves and society at large.One of the biggest reasons it should matter is because students’ fate as they transition to ninth grade can have long-term consequences not only for the students but for their home communities. We make these observations as research psychologists who have studied how schools and families can help young people thrive.In the new global economy, students who fail to finish ninth grade with passing grades in college preparatory coursework are very unlikely to graduate on time and go on to get jobs. One study has calculated that the lifetime benefit to the local economy for a single additional student who completes high school is half a million dollars or more. This is based on higher earnings and avoided costs in health care, crime, welfare dependence and other things.Lifetime consequencesThe consequences of doing poorly in the ninth grade can impact more than students’ ability to find a good job. It can also impact the extent to which they enjoy life.Students lose the adults and many of the friends they turned to for support when they move from eighth to ninth grade. One study of ninth grade students found that 50 percent of friendships among ninth graders changed from one month to the next, signaling striking instability in friendships.In addition, studies find the first year of high school typically shows one of the greatest increases in depression of any year over the lifespan.Researchers think that one explanation is that ties to friends are severed, while academic demands are rising.Furthermore, most adult cases of clinical depression first emerge in adolescence. The World Health Organization reports that depression has the greatest burden of disease, in terms of the total cost of treatment and the loss of productivity, of any affliction worldwide.In search of solutionsGiven all that’s riding on having a successful ninth grade experience, it pays to explore what can be done to improve the academic, social and emotional challenges of the transition to high school.So far, our studies have yielded one main insight: Students’ beliefs about change – their beliefs about whether people are stuck one way forever, or whether people can change their traits and abilities – are related to their ability to cope, succeed academically and maintain good mental health. Past research has called these beliefs “mindsets,” with a “fixed mindset” referring to the belief that people cannot change and a “growth mindset” referring to the belief that people can change.We found that when students felt like their declining grades were a sign that they will never be successful, or when they feel like a loss of support from friends means that they will be stuck being “not likable” for life, then they have coped poorly.In one recent study, we examined 360 adolescents’ beliefs about the nature of “smartness” – that is, their fixed mindsets about intelligence.We then assessed biological stress responses for students whose grades were dropping by examining their saliva for cortisol levels — a so-called “toxic stress” hormone that is secreted by the body when people feel threatened.Students who believe their situation can change tend to cope better with stress, researchers say. Monkey Business Images/www.shutterstock.comStudents who believed that intelligence is fixed – that you are stuck being “not smart” if you struggle in school – showed higher cortisol levels in their saliva when their GPAs were declining at the beginning of ninth grade. If students believed that intelligence could improve – that is to say, when they held more of a growth mindset of intelligence – we detected less cortisol in the saliva of students whose grades were declining.This was an exciting result because it showed that the body’s stress responses are not determined solely by one’s GPA. Instead, declining grades only predicted worse stress hormones among students who believed that worsening grades were a permanent and hopeless state of affairs.Keeping stress at bayWe also investigated the social side of the high school transition. In this study, instead of teaching students that their smartness can change, we taught them that their social standing – that is, whether you are bullied or excluded or left out – can change over time. We then looked at high school students’ stress responses to daily social difficulties. That is, we taught them a growth mindset about their social lives.In this study, students came into the laboratory and were asked to give a public speech in front of upper-year students. The topic of the speech was what makes someone popular in high school. Following this, students had to complete a difficult mental math task in front of the same upper-year students. This is called the Trier Social Stress Test, and it has proven to be an effective and ethical way to examine physiological signatures of stress responses. Public speaking is stressful but is no different from common experiences in high school. Students are thoroughly debriefed and have the opportunity to have a more lighthearted interaction with the upper-year students afterward. Parents also consented before allowing their children to participate.Students who were not taught that people can change showed poor stress responses. When these students gave the speech, their blood vessels contracted and their hearts pumped less blood through the body – both responses that the body shows when it is preparing for damage or defeat after a physical threat. Then they gave worse speeches and made more mistakes in math.But when students were taught that people can change, they had better responses to stress, in part because they felt like they had the resources to deal with the demanding situation. Students who got the growth mindset intervention showed less-constricted blood vessels and their hearts pumped more blood – both of which contributed to more oxygen getting to the brain, and, ultimately, better performance on the speech and mental math tasks.These findings lead to several possibilities that we and others are investigating further.First, we are working to replicate these findings in more diverse school communities. We want to know in which types of schools and for which kinds of students these growth mindset ideas help young people adapt to the challenges of high school. And where do they need to be paired with other resources to have their strongest effects? We have made a free beta version of our intervention available to schools or parents.We also hope to learn how teachers, parents or school counselors can help students keep their ongoing academic or social difficulties in perspective. We wonder what would happen if schools helped to make beliefs about the potential for change and improvement a larger feature of the overall school culture, especially for students starting the ninth grade.

first_imgMonday Mar 3, 2008 Wycliff Palu scores then gets yellowcard Big Waratahs number eight Wycliff Palu finished off this nice try from a Highlanders turnover, then got yellow carded for overreacting to a swinging arm by Jimmy Cowan. Cowan, New Zealand’s player of the tournament last year, has always been incredibly competitive and at times, cocky. For a scrum half, he’s not the smallest guy, and punches well above his weight.Here he dives in on the Waratahs tryscorer Palu, I can only think to try dislodge the ball, but Palu takes exception to it, getting up and basically flat hand smacking Cowan in the face.Palu got his marching orders, and the game actually restarted with a penalty on the halfway line for the Highlanders.Palu went from hero to zero in a matter of seconds.

first_imgMonday Feb 16, 2015 Wales edge Scotland in tense Test at Murrayfield Wales picked up their first win of this year’s Six Nations with a gritty 26-23 victory over Scotland at Murrayfield. Both sides scored two tries each, and the game ended in controversy as the hosts felt they should have been allowed to continue their fightback. Scotland scored a late try through Jon Welsh, to add to the early try by Stuart Hogg, but fulltime was blown by referee Glen Jackson when it appeared that there may have still been time on the clock. The loss leaves Scotland without a point from two matches.“From where I was sitting, there was time to take the kick [restart],” said Scotland’s Greig Laidlaw.“The majority of the stadium seemed to feel the same. Whether we would have gone on to score, that’s a different matter. Rome was not built in a day and this team is on a journey with Vern Cotter. I thought the referee forgot how long was on the clock at the end..”View the final whistle incidentScoring two tries apiece, with Ryys Webb and Jonathan Davies scoring for Wales, it was the boot of Leigh Halfpenny that ultimately proved the difference between the two sides, with his one extra penalty giving the visitors the edge.It was Wales’ eighth straight victory over Scotland in the Six Nations, but the Scots will take heart from their performance, and coach Vern Cotter, who ironically used to be in charge of Glen Jackson when he was a player, said that he will submit notes on the referees performance.“We were unconvincing last week and again towards the end today but a win’s a win,” said Wales lock Alun-Wyn Jones post match. “In the last couple of games we’ve been unconvincing but credit to Scotland, they never gave up.”Wales are in fourth position on the table, level with France on points but have a worse points deficit. Scotland are second from the bottom, ahead of Italy, with both sides having lost two from two.

first_imgMonday May 20, 2019 Bristol Bears show how despite having one foot out the door, legend George Smith still played his role Bristol Bears bade farewell to one of rugby’s modern greats at the weekend, as the 38-year-old George Smith played his final game.ADVERTISEMENTThe 111-cap Wallaby arrived at Ashton Gate at the beginning of the season, and has helped Pat Lam’s team in their first season back in the Premiership. He made his last appearance in professional rugby against Newcastle, before he moves on to become coach of Japanese outfit Sungatory Goliath.Smith may have not stolen many headlines this season, but Bristol have been keen to show what a player he has been for the club, particularly off the pitch.Bristol Bears Academy tweeted recently how Smith continued to work tirelessly in training in his final week as a professional player. They said “Young players trying to be the best they can – Be like George!”Watching 1st team training this week & was struck by George Smith doing fitness & skills extra’s – in his final ever week as a professional! No wonder he has been at the top for 20 years! Young players trying to be the best they can – Be like George! pic.twitter.com/2HhT0W62rl— Bristol Bears Academy (@brfc_academy) May 19, 2019They also described how much he has helped with the academy throughout his year with the club, rightfully calling him a “legend”.He also contributed in helping the younger players coming through the Bears system – word “legend” is readily overused, feel confident in using it with regards to George! Top man – best of luck for the future! https://t.co/7VoVlGPS5K— Bristol Bears Academy (@brfc_academy) May 19, 2019ADVERTISEMENTWhile this may not be a lengthy eulogy to one of the greatest players of his generation, it is still an insight into why Smith has remained at the top for so long.Staggeringly, Smith made his debut for the Wallabies in 2000, which is simply an unprecedented longevity in modern rugby. Despite playing 111 tests, the fact that he has played up until now is remarkable.Smith effectively retired from international rugby in 2009, although he did come back in 2013 for a Test against the British and Irish Lions. By then, he was already the youngest player to achieve 100 caps, at the age of 29. If he continued to represent his country, there is no doubt that he could have eclipsed Richie McCaw’s caps record. Then again, he probably would not have been able to play until he was 38.ADVERTISEMENTSmith has been a standout player for almost every team he has ever played for. In 2015, he joined Wasps, with many unsure how much he would be able to provide. However, he went on to win the Premiership Players’ Player of the Year accolade in his first season, despite being the age of 34.Although one of the most interesting careers of the professional era is coming to an end, Bristol have given an insight into how much he has been able to contribute to the game for so long, and perhaps why it will be a while before another player has a career so long and varied as his.
