The announcement of the budget is a time to reflect upon this and thank all of the partner organisations that have joined forces to put resources into the local contribution to the overall Games budget.”“The £778 million of public funding confirmed today not only covers our costs for delivering the Games but a portion of this money will be invested in a couple of our key venues, covering some of the costs relating to the redevelopment of the Alexander Stadium and the building of the brand new Sandwell Aquatics Centre,” says Ian Reid, Chief Executive Officer for Birmingham 2022, while adding“These projects and others, which will receive additional and accelerated funding because of the Games, will benefit the city and the region long after our closing ceremony on 7 August 2022.“We are working closely with our partners, especially the Commonwealth Games Federation, to ensure that wherever possible we are reducing the cost of staging a Commonwealth Games and we’re committed to delivering this event on budget. We’ll provide regular financial updates over the next three years, so that our progress can be tracked.“Having our budget confirmed is a key milestone for us and we can now look forward to delivering a fantastic Games for the people of Birmingham, the West Midlands and the country.”Birmingham 2022 will open up a wealth of opportunities for people across the West Midlands region and the UK, including cultural engagement, business and trade, volunteering, physical activity, jobs and skills, education and tourism.With an estimated global audience of 1.5 billion, Birmingham 2022 offers a unique opportunity to harness the power of sport and cultural activities to boost the West Midlands region and to promote Global Britain across the Commonwealth as we leave the EU.Also Read: Women’s Cricket At CWG: ICC confirms bid for 2022 Commonwealth GamesMCC backs women’s T20 in 2022 Commonwealth GamesCWG 2018: Gold Coast shine in Commonwealth Games glory BCCI Apex Council Meet: BCCI to bid for 3 major global events in next tournament cycle starting from 2024; Check WI vs SA 2nd Test Day 3 Live: South Africa lose early wickets; SA 50/3 (16.4 ov)- Follow Live Updates Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Tokyo Olympics: BCCI provides fuel in Indian Olympic flame, to contribute Rs 10 crore WTC Final Day 3 Stumps: India remove Conway and Latham but Kiwis on top; NZ 101/2 (49 ovs) trail by 116 runs WTC Final LIVE: Devon Conway continues red-hot form, slams fifty to provide New Zealand dream start Cricket Previous articleSP MLA thinks Indian cricket team wearing orange jerseys isNext articleBabar Azam can match Kohli, feels Pakistan batting coach Grant Flower Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

Proud of your neighborhood? Improve it with an Orange County grant

first_img The reason the chain link fence at Rock Springs Rd. and Welch is crumpled is because semi trailer trucks turn that corner and hit the fence and tear it up. It has been repaired and repaired, over and over, through out the years, but the semi trucks continue to hit the fence, as they try to turn the corner with the long semi trailer big rigs, and mess it up the fence repeatedly, over and over. The semi trucks that deliver goods to the grocery mainly, but others also. January 22, 2018 at 11:55 am Please enter your name here Orange County’s Neighborhood Pride GrantsFrom Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson  Orange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonOrange County cherishes its communities by giving property owner associations and neighborhood groups the opportunity to apply for Neighborhood Pride Grants. There are six grant applications available for improving physical and social qualities of neighborhoods. All grant applications may be submitted as many times as an organization wishes. However, organizations may not be awarded grant funds more than 2 consecutive years at a time. Once submitted, applications are selected based on need and on a first-come, first-serve basis. This process is very competitive and only a limited number of grants are awarded to each district every calendar year. The purpose of this article is to discuss the different types of Pride Grants, what each has to offer, and how to apply for them.The Neighborhood Pride Landscaping Grant offers a maximum of $2,500 for projects not exceeding $3,125 in total cost, and a community contribution of 25% is required. This Grant is designed for landscaping enhancements, which, for example, are found in entranceways. On a similar note, the Entranceway Grant offers up to $5,000 with a $5,250 ceiling total project cost and 5% community contribution. This Grant can be used to assist with projects involving signs, repairs for irrigation systems, wall pressure washing and painting, entranceway improvements, and ground lighting.Major damages to walls fall under the Wall Repair Grant. This grant offers up to $20,000 with many restrictions, one recognizing that non-profit organizations are not eligible. In addition, the Neighborhood Preservation and Revitalization Division stresses that qualifying walls be repaired to their original condition. The Neighborhood Grants Advisory Board is the authority to determine as to whether a certain wall contains large-scale structural damage, as required by the Grant’s criteria.Unlike the Wall Repair Grant, the Neighborhood Pride Mini-Grant only offers up to $1,500 for a $1,500 maximum project cost. In addition, this Grant requires no community contribution match. Another grant that does not require a community contribution is the Neighborhood Sign Grant and offers up to $5,000 for projects not exceeding $5,000 in total cost.There are projects that can be utilized if changes occur in a community. For example, suppose a number of families with small children move into a community; the addition of a playground would make a positive contribution to the area. This is one of many goals for the Neighborhood Pride Capital Improvement Grant. The Grant offers up to $10,000 for projects that do not exceed $20,000 in total cost, with a 25% contribution.If an organization wants to begin an application, it can attend one of the Neighborhood Preservation & Revitalization Division’s free grant workshops. The Division is available to look at each respective organization’s application even before making their final submissions. Those who have pride in their communities and are ready to make a difference may call the Division’s phone number at (407) 836-5606 or go online to to access each application. All applications are reviewed every year from October through June. Each organization applying is required to have a specified number of members on their grant team, depending on the grant(s) they are applying for; with a dedicated grant team, residents can experience and take part in the pride that Orange County has in its communities.

Born from an extreme transformation of a typical 90’s bungalow, the “Maison Terrebonne” is located on a vast wooded plot of land. Although certainly contemporary, the new residence is built on the same foundations as the original house while preserving one of its principal characteristics; split levels. This principle is at the very heart of this building’s new architecture. This thorough building overhaul, in combination with a larger upstairs, was designed in order to meet the needs of a person living alone. Despite a small 1500 square foot living space, the residence offers vast open rooms with an abundance of natural lighting.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe house now features three split levels that are each designed for a distinct set of functions that help establish a clear hierarchy between intimate and communal zones. These zones are designed to be very open in relation to each other and are only divided by the threshold created by the flights of stairs. Directly accessible from the carport and at the same height as the ground outside is the first of three levels that contains both the entrance vestibule as well as a small office. Even though this entry zone is also open, it is concealed from the living spaces on the level above. Once in the center of the staircase leading to the second level, the visitor comes face to face with a large window with a view on the woods behind the home. The kitchen can be found there, organized around a large wooden island whose materials stand out in relation to the neutral white walls. Along the large bay window adjoining the kitchen can be found the dining and living rooms. At the crossroads of all these levels is located a pure white block that naturally reinforces the intimacy between zones and around which gravitates circulation within the home. This block has a powerful effect on the upper portion of each level as a result of it being unattached to the ceiling, which allows for both an unobstructed line of sight and opulent natural lighting.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe staircase and corridor leading to the owner’s private suite on the top level are located behind this central block and have a view on the inferior levels. Inside the cube and accessible only from the bedroom is a hidden bathroom designed with simple, clean lines. Though without a door, intimacy is preserved by the configuration of walls leading to the bathroom. Inside the bathroom, floor and walls are covered in a pearl white glass mosaic and it is modestly furnished with two white, minimalist blocks, bathtub and vanity. In order to accentuate the furniture’s monolithic appearance, doors with a smooth matte finish were placed on either side to avoid creating divisions at the front while a Corian sink was molded into the counter above. A thin setback kick space creates the impression that it isn’t attached to the floor while giving the bathroom a sense of space and lightness.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe bedroom is located at the very back and opens partially to the living spaces below. In order to limit visibility from the outside into this room, windows were voluntarily limited in height and therefore create long strips of light. At the rear, the room extends towards the woods by way of a loggia. From here the surrounding natural environment can be viewed without any obstacles thanks to the transparency of the glass railing barrier.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe exterior is covered in natural eastern cedar siding that will fade over time to eventually further bear a resemblance to the bark of trees in the surrounding woods. Simple openings surrounded by black frames serve to punctuate the sheer volume of the house. The former garage has been replaced with a covered parking space that’s open on either end, and thus gives the impression that it was emptied. This openness creates a sense of transparency that, like all large openings, provides the space for nature to reclaim its place. Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletProject gallerySee allShow lessKengo Kuma, SANAA and Nikken Design New Shibuya SkyscraperArchitecture News4 Ways Technology Can Improve Architecture for (and by) the BlindArchitecture News Share Year:  “COPY” ArchDaily CopyAbout this officela SHED architectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTerrebonneCanadaPublished on July 10, 2015Cite: “Maison Terrebonne / la SHED architecture” 10 Jul 2015.

But the organization is still in need of more volunteers, due to the rise of clients needing meals each month.“Our program is growing and there is always additional help needed,” said Nedra Cutler, vice-president of volunteer services. “Many of our volunteers have been with us for a long time and some of them are having to retire.”This volunteer group she refers to is “The Greatest Generation.” Cutler said this group is heavily involved because their schedules allow them more flexibility.Jack Derddyn, a 93-year-old volunteer, is a location manager who ensures that all volunteers have the supplies they need to deliver their route.“The people you work with are some of the nicest people you will ever meet,” Derddyn said.As this group has aged, she said many of the volunteers are no longer able to help as much. The organization is now trying to recruit younger volunteers.Abby Schell, a senior at Texas Christian University, has volunteered for the past two-and-a-half years and recruits other students to join her.“After volunteering for a while, you learn more about the social issues behind the problem that we are trying to fix with Meals on Wheels,” said Schell. “We are able to help eliminate some of the social isolation that some of these homebound elderly clients experience.”As Schell points out, many of these clients receive little to no contact outside of the volunteers that arrive for a short time to visit and deliver their meal at lunchtime.“Most of the people that we deliver to are really genuinely glad to see us when we arrive,” said Shawn Williams, a junior sociology major at TCU.Schell recalls a time that one of her clients told her that she has never had a meal that she didn’t enjoy. The client proceeded to write a letter to Meals on Wheels thanking them for delivering such “wonderful and delicious meals” to her every day. In return, the client received flowers from Meals on Wheels.“She told me this and said, ‘now I feel obligated to send them another thank you letter for the flowers,’” said Schell, who chuckled at the situation.The program not only provides food to those who need it, but also provides perspective to those serving.Claire Laging, a first-year student volunteer, started helping this semester every Thursday. She said volunteering gives her an opportunity to give back and see another side of Fort Worth.“Volunteering for Meals on Wheels has showed me there are more things to worry about in life than tests, papers and projects,” Laging said.Representatives of Meals on Wheels ask that each volunteer drive a route once a week during lunchtime. Volunteer drivers pick up meals between 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at a local meal site, usually a church, and deliver them to the clients. The route takes approximately an hour to complete and volunteers deliver to about 16 clients.Volunteers not only ensure that the homebound elderly and disabled clients receive a nutritious meal and friendly visit, but they also check the safety of the clients.Jonathan Pham, a member of the Meals on Wheels Student Association, recalls a time when he delivered a meal to an elderly woman who could not answer her door. After knocking a few times, he heard her cry for help. He proceeded to call 911 for the fallen elderly woman.For some clients it’s peace of mind knowing that someone is checking on them each day but some enjoy the social aspect.For Helen, an 83-year-old client who asked her last name to not be used, said it’s all about the daily contact.“I just love all the people I get to see each week,” Helen said. “The volunteers are so good to me and are very friendly people.”Helen, who moved from New Orleans to Fort Worth to be closer to her sister, said without the help of Meals on Wheels, she would have to live in an assisted living community. The program allows her to live independently without this expense and receive daily meals that she otherwise would not be able to provide on her own.She said that due to her bad knees it makes it near impossible to walk to a local grocery store and try to prepare a meal for herself each day.Helen is just one of the many clients served by Meals on Wheels each week.To donate or volunteer for Meals on Wheels click here. + posts Twitter Wedgwood Academy students receive real-world work experience Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Madeline Hamm Twitter IMAGE: From the TCU Diamond to Lupton Stadiumlast_img read more

Journalist killed, others wounded in “Black Friday” violence in Tripoli

Issam Az-Zbir of a Spanish news agency and Abdel Man’im Al-Maryami were among the journalists who were injured while covering the violence in Gharghur. Members of an armed group arrested Tarek Al-Huni, the head of the state-owned news agency Al-Wataniya, when he went to Shari’ Zawiya Hospital to assist the wounded. He was held for nearly six hours at the former internal security headquarters in Tripoli.Gunmen stormed the headquarters of Tubactus TV, located in Gharghur, causing serious damage, the head of the station said.Nearly three years after the Libyan revolution began on 17 February 2011, the new “free” Libya is in the throes of growing political instability and violence that is affecting all of its citizens, including media personnel.Reporters Without Borders emphasizes the crucial role that journalists play in any democratic society and hails the courage they show when covering events on the streets in order to keep the public informed.“We urge the Libyan authorities to do everything in their power to quickly end the cycle of violence prevailing in Libya and to ensure that journalists are able to practice their profession without being threatened, arrested, injured or laying down their lives,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.Libya is subject to national and international obligations – including article 14 of the Constitutional Declaration proclaimed by the National Transitional Council on 8 August 2011 and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which it is a party – to respect and ensure respect for freedom of expression, association, assembly and information. The new Libya must not abandon its commitment to democracy and its undertaking to establish the rule of law with respect for fundamental freedoms and human rights.Libya is ranked 131st out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Exclusive Close Up: Pasadena Police Department Hits the Streets Fully Equipped with High-Tech Body Cams

Other Department employees including detention officers, park safety specialists, community service officers, reserve officers and forensic technicians will also have that extra set of digital eyes attached to them in an impressive 21st century department upgrade.We are excited about using the body cams. We believe that the cameras will hold everyone accountable for their actions—not just the police, but the public at large,” said Lieutenant Vasken Gourdikian. “It’s a piece of technology that’s being introduced not only locally, but nation-wide and we are happy to participate in the program. We believe that it will enhance officer safety as well.”The Pasadena Police Department purchased approximately 300 new body cameras for $1.5 million from Taser International in the form of two models called the Axon Body 2 and the Flex. The Axon Body 2 is a rectangular body cam that fastens to the chest area of an officer, and the Flex is a clip-on camera in the shape of a writing pen most commonly used by motor officers.These cameras, although compact in size, pack all the features of cutting edge video technology: 1080p HD full color video resolution, 142 degree field of view, 12 hour battery life, 64 GB of storage, dual channel audio recording and more.“The expectation is that everyone in the Police Department that interacts with the public — not just sworn police officers, but whomever has frequent and regular contact with members of the public or by virtue of their job assignment — they are all issued a body worn camera,” Gourdikian said.Support staff and clerical staff that work in side the police headquarters building at 207 North Garfield Avenue are not expected to be assigned a body camera, he said.Each camera is serialized for each officer/user even when a spare camera must be put in rotation due to inactive battery life or any other malfunction.“My body worn camera is personally assigned to me. So if you were to don it and go record, it’s as if I am wearing it. You can go back into the field with a spare body worn camera, yet it’s assigned to you as if your current camera is assigned to you so there is no digital interruption with the video evidence that you are gathering,” said Gourdikian about serializing body cams.The Axon body cams are activated by the push of large button on the front of it that beeps loudly, blinks red to indicate it is recording and also vibrates regularly during recording to allow officer’s to know that is in operation and working.“Last week we did five days straight of training. The entire department was trained on how to use the technology and policy,” said Corporal Todd McDonald.Officers are required to function test their camera before each shift and the camera is to remain on standby in what’s called “passive mode”, where the camera is on but not recording, until the officer manually pushes the large recording button on the front of the camera.“The minute they get a radio call of a crime in progress, whether they are pulling a car over, or even a cold report the expectation is that you hit record and go about your job. That’s the only nuance that is different. Before, they would just go do their job and now they will hit record whenever they are going to interact with members of the public,” said Gourdikian.The cameras offer a 30 second buffer feature that allows for footage to be seen 30 seconds prior to the camera recording to provide further context of the situation that merited an officer to record.“If they park their car and get out and want to go get a cup of coffee, their camera is still in the passive mode and is not recording because they’re not investigating anything and they’re not responding to a call for services and there is no imminent threat. Now, if someone confronts them and the conversation becomes adversarial or someone tries to get their attention to investigate, then the expectation is that they hit record,” explained Gourdikian.There are docking stations on every floor in the building of the PPD where both the Axon body cameras and the Flex model cameras “live” when not in operation to charge up and also transfer over and upload the day’s footage from each officer’s shift.All of the footage is stored in a virtual filing cabinet in a cloud-based format called“This is supervised by a full time employee in the building as well because its treated as digital evidence and property,” explained Gourdikian.Video footage is treated as evidence and restricts access as a way to present checks and balances within the operation.Officers are only allowed to view their own footage as a means for court and report preparation, Gourdikian said. The database logs any and all activity.“The average user can view his or her own videos at any time,” said McDonald.The footage logging process is detailed and models traditional evidence locker practices.“It’s just like if we were booking a physical object in as evidence. We would tag it with a case number, we would put the location of where we recovered it from, the circumstances involving that case and then we physically hand it to the property room supervisor who then books it in as evidence so that every subsequent view of that physical object requires a sign-off. So now this electronically monitored in that fashion,” Gourdikian explained.According to Gourdikian and McDonald, the new technology is not daunting, but will take some time to get used to.“It’s a learning curve, but it’s also going to require attention full time. We’ve made arrangements to ensure that there are no interruptions in service to the troops and to the public,” said Gourdikian.City of Pasadena Department of Information Technology personnel are availbale to provide technical support in the form of maintenance, troubleshooting and providing reference guides for officers it the field.For more technical information about the body cameras the Pasadena Police Department now uses, visit Top of the News Business News HerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Lies You Should Stop Telling Yourself Right NowHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyCostume That Makes Actresses Beneath Practically UnrecognizableHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyFinding The Right Type Of Workout For You According AstrologyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyIs It Bad To Give Your Boyfriend An Ultimatum?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyAmazing Sparks Of On-Screen Chemistry From The 90-sHerbeautyHerbeauty faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Community News Your email address will not be published.

(Credit: World Food Championships)Two chefs from Pasadena and another from Altadena clinched the top three spots in the World Food Championships, to be held in Dallas in November, the competition announced Thursday.Reigning World Recipe Champion Lidia Haddadian of Pasadena, a home cook competing in the “Recipes” category, topped the listing of 100 competitors to watch as nearly 500 chefs do culinary battle for a chance to win more than $300,000 in prizes, WFC said in a written statement.She was immediately followed in the ranking by Jodie Tafell of Altadena, competing as a home cook in the “Bacon” category. Tafell is also defending her title as World Bacon Champion.Professional chef Ven Diaz of Pasadena rounds out the top three competitors, competing in the “Chef” category, according to WFC.Nearly 500 teams are expected to converge in Dallas in November for the competition, known as the “Ultimate Food Fight,” the statement said.In a video statement provided by contest organizers, Haddadian said the contest challenges her to innovate.“I love competition.

ISO 45001 for Occupational Health and Safety by (L) Fergal O’Byrne, Head of Business Excellence at NSAI and Maria McKeown (R), NSAI Business Excellence Auditor.A Limerick consultancy firm has become the first company in Ireland – and among the first in the world – to achieve certification to a new global health and safety standard, known as I.S. ISO 45001.Antaris Consulting was presented with its certificate last week by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) at the company’s head offices in Pery Square.Founded in 1994, Antaris Consulting is one of the best-known management systems consultancies and software solutions providers in Ireland. The company’s flagship software, Pegasus Legal Register, is used by organisations across the world to identify and monitor their legal obligations, which is a requirement of many ISO standards, including I.S. ISO 45001.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “It is a great achievement on being the first company certified to I.S. ISO 45001 in Ireland. Not only does the certification continue to secure the safety of our staff, but it also demonstrates our ambition to be the leading consultancy in ISO implementation,” said Eugene Cush, Consultant, Antaris Consulting“I.S. ISO 45001 complements our existing certifications to ISO 9001 for Quality Management, ISO 14001 for Environmental Management and ISO 27001 for Information Security, which gives our clients confidence that Antaris are experts in the field of ISO management systems,” said Mr Cush.First launched worldwide on March 12th, I.S. ISO 45001 for Occupational Health and Safety, sets the minimum standard of practice to protect employees worldwide.“This much-anticipated standard was developed over several months with the input of experts from more than 70 countries,” said NSAI Chief Executive, Geraldine Larkin.“I.S. ISO 45001 is set to transform workplace practices globally and I am extremely proud that NSAI has been able to offer it to Irish businesses from day one,” she added.Health and safety in the workplace is the number one concern of most businesses, yet still deaths and injuries occur. According to the Health and Safety Authority, 501 people have died in workplace accidents in Ireland since 2008, with 47 deaths in 2017 alone. Almost half of all deaths occurred in the agriculture, forestry and fishing sectors.“Globally, more than 2.78 million fatal accidents occur at work yearly, with some 374 million incidents of non-fatal work-related injuries and illnesses,” said NSAI’s Head of Business Excellence, Fergal O’Byrne.“This paints a sober picture of the modern workplace – one where workers can suffer serious consequences as a result of simply doing their job. The beauty of ISO 45001 is that it’s applicable to all organisations, regardless of size, industry or nature of business.” said O’Byrne.I.S. ISO 45001 is designed to be integrated into an organisation’s existing management processes and follows the same high-level structure as other ISO management system standards, such as ISO 9001 (quality management) and ISO 14001 (environmental management), which are used by more than 3,000 companies in Ireland today.Key potential benefits from use of the standard include a reduction of workplace incidents, reduced absenteeism and staff turnover, reduced cost of insurance premiums, the creation of a health and safety culture, reinforced leadership commitment to proactively improve Occupational Health and Safety performance, enhanced reputation and improved staff morale.More about business here.
