Mable, not her real name, is quite withdrawn.  It is obvious that she is unhappy, but then I realized why.  The other ladies, including my wife, pick on her relentlessly.  One might say that this is a nursing home and because it is occupied with the elderly suffering from all sort of maladies, including Dementia, weird behavior could be expected, but as Christians this is not right.Loneliness and isolation are killers.  They break the human spirit.  Let it never be said that we contribute to the diminishing of another soul.    And while I am on the subject of bullying, gossip is nothing less than murder for it is character assassination.  Our purpose in life should be to relieve suffering not add to it,   Our purpose should be to spread love, not hate. inclusivity, not exclusivity.  Mercy, not cruelty.  Let it be said of us that we are Christ-like in all things, that the world is a better place because we were here.Live wholly,Love fully,Love God, and make a difference, today Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. charles towne LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply July 30, 2017 at 10:36 am Reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Linda Liphamlast_img read more

first_img From the Orange County Newsroom It’s not uncommon for Apopka residents Steven and Jennifer Hamilton to have their trash become a buffet for bears in their neighborhood. Bears’ noses are more sensitive than a bloodhound and they are frequently drawn to curbside garbage.“Our trash is torn up by bears at least once per month,” Jennifer Hamilton said. “We understand that we share the habitat with bears and want to encourage them to stay in the nature preserve area and to eat healthy plants and berries … not unhealthy garbage.”That is why the Hamiltons, along with other northern Apopka residents, have ordered bear-resistant roll carts. A little more than 10,000 households in Northwest unincorporated Orange County are in the Bear Management Area. Those residents are now offered bear-resistant roll carts for $50.The 95-gallon bear roll-carts have a special gravity lock mechanism that makes them work seamlessly with automated trash pickup. Residents who have these bear carts do not incur any additional solid waste fees.The roll carts were recently dropped off to some of the residents by Orange County District 2 Commissioner Bryan Nelson and County Utilities staff. They also provided hands-on demonstrations on how the roll cart works.“Orange County Government was delighted to be the recipient of a $200,000 matching grant program from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and we are providing a $25,000 match,” Commissioner Nelson said. “Right now, we have ordered 910 carts and about 110 residents have expressed interest in using them. Bear carts are good for the bears and good for people. I hope that more Apopka residents take advantage of this opportunity.”Bear-resistant roll carts are pricey – each one costs $245. However, residents only have to pay $50 for a reduced service fee thanks to the grant.  Also, the carts are not “owned” by residents – they are property of Orange County to be used by the property owner.“Only Orange County Solid Waste residential customers in the Bear Management Area are eligible for a bear-resistant roll cart,” said Allan Cole, Orange County Utilities Supervisor. “However, we encourage all residents to be ‘bear aware’ and not leave pet food on the back porch, know that bird feeders can attract bears and bring garbage out to the curb in the early morning – not at night.”Purchasing the bear-resistant roll carts is voluntary. Homeowners can choose to keep their existing roll carts secure (in the garage as an example) and place them at the curb between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. the day of pickup – not overnight when bears typically seek food.For information, including an online application and to see if you reside in the Bear Management area, visit, or call 407-836-6601 or email [email protected] Photo: District 2 Commissioner Bryan Nelson shows 10-year-old Apopka resident Aidan Evelyn how to use the bear-resistant roll cart.

first_img Howard Lake | 20 October 2009 | News Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Ireland recession Research / statistics Barnardos Ireland’s fundraising “down 20%” The charity has a funding shortfall of €1,180,000 for this year and is well short of the €5.9 million it needs to keep services going.Barnardos last week launched a public appeal fronted by the charity’s chief executive using radio and newspaper inserts.Director of marketing and fundraising Ruth Guy said if the budget deficit continued into next year it would then have to look at curtailing or cutting projects as “a worst case scenario”.A 3% reduction in HSE funding has already been agreed, meaning a drop in the 67% of statutory funding already provided to Barnardos. A pay freeze is already in place for the charity’s 360 full-time staff. As for the possible closure of projects, she said: “It is going to be largely dependent on the funding that we are getting in.”Last year Barnardos had an income of €24.386 million, compared to €21.589 million in 2007. Voluntary income in 2008 was €7.415 million with a figure of €6.447 million in 2007. Net assets, however, declined from €7.279 million in 2007 to €4.402 million in 2008 due a pension scheme As it launched a major fundraising campaign Barnardos Ireland admitted that it is facing a funding shortfall which could jeopardise some of its projects around the country, the charity has told the Irish Examiner.The children’s charity said it expected a 20% shortfall in funding this year with another budget deficit next year.The organisation deals with 5,500 children and runs 42 projects around the country, but faces a funding crisis which it attributed to the effects of the recession.

His assailants apparently thought the parliamentarians should not have given an interview to a station considered sympathetic to the opposition Kuomintang party.After smashing lighting and other equipment, the angry crowd attacked Chang Chong-Bin and Gao Wen-Yin of privately-owned ETTV when they tried to interview their CTi colleagues about the violence they had just undergone. Journalist Lee Ze-Ming of Formosa TV (FTV), which supports President Chen, was also manhandled by the crowd because he was wearing a red jacket, the colour of those campaigning for Chen’s resignation.The Taipei Journalists Union (TJU) also condemned these attacks and called on the organisers of demonstrations to ensure the safety of journalists.

first_imgThe wandering albatross, Diomedea exulans, is a globally threatened species breeding at a number of sites within the Southern Ocean. Across the South Georgia archipelago, there are differences in population trends even at closely located colonies. Between 1999 and 2018 the largest colony, at Bird Island, declined at 3.01% per annum, while in the Bay of Isles, the decline was 1.44% per annum. Using mean demographic rates from a 31-year study at Bird Island and an 11-year study of breeding success at Prion Island in the Bay of Isles in a VORTEX model, we show that differences in breeding success do not fully explain observed differences in population trends. Other potential contributing factors are differential use of foraging areas, with possible knock-on effects on adult body condition, provisioning rate and breeding success, or on bycatch rates of adults or immatures.last_img read more
