Hard Rock Stadium DSNAP event reaches capacity

(WSVN) – The Food for Florida Event being held at Hard Rock Stadium has reached full capacity, Wednesday afternoon, as hundreds of people lined up to receive food assistance.Thousands of people lined up at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami-Dade and the BB&T Center in Broward in search of relief after suffering losses in the wake of Hurricane Irma.The Florida Department of Children and Families organized the event, being held Tuesday through Thursday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., to hand out emergency food stamps as part of the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Program.“Everything is good, everything is good,” said a man in Spanish as he walked out of the stadium, pre-loaded access card in hand.During the event, a woman required emergency medical care.“One person in the household can come and represent the whole family, bring all the information about the family members,” said DCF spokesperson Gilda Ferradaz. “Therefore, we could be be able to cut the number of people in the lines and [help avoid] those kinds of incidents. Although, as you can see, we have golf carts, we have wheelchairs, we have ice and water. [We’re] trying to keep the people as comfortable as possible.”Recipients said the line moved smoothly, considering the number of people at the Miami Gardens venue. However, just before 2:30 p.m., officials closed the lines at Hard Rock Stadium after they reached capacity. Officials said those already in line will be helped, but anyone else will be asked to come back Thursday.Irma took a toll on Miami-Dade families when it blew through South Florida in late September. “As I have to try to feed four people, and all my food has done spoiled,” said Miami-Dade resident Dolly Leverson.More than 22,000 people stood in line at Hard Rock Stadium on Tuesday.7News cameras also captured long lines at the BB&T Center on Wednesday, as people showed up early in an effort to avoid a lengthy wait.“The wait’s not bad. It’s peen going pretty good,” said Broward resident Robert Munday. “People have been real nice.”The overall consensus about how DCF handled the process stands in stark contrast with D-SNAP distributions in October. Residents who showed up at four assistance centers in Miami-Dade and Broward waited for hours under sweltering conditions.This time, officials said, they have taken steps to ease the burden. For example, DCF has assigned specific days based on a person’s last name: last_img read more

I already know a CMO on Twitter. I’ll bet you do too! One great way to get on the “inside” of an account is to follow key marketing decision-makers on Twitter. Anyone can “follow” anyonewith a Twitter account, and by “following” a marketing executive youwill receive a steady stream of anecdotal information that can betterhelp you understand and ultimately sell the account.Thequestion is, who in your client’s marketing department is onTwitter? I’ve noticed that most ad managers and people focused oninternal functions are often not. Even though Twitter is all the rage,most people who start do not continue. A recent survey by Nielsen foundthat slightly less than 60 percent of Twitter beginners continue after a month. Inbusiness, the people who tend to keep Tweeting are ones who find abusiness benefit. For internal people, like media buyers, once thenovelty wears of it can be hard to justify the time, effort anddiscipline required to keep up a steady flow of Tweets.

Apple Aims To Help Parents Crack Down On Kids iPhone Use

first_imgMark Lennihan/APA child plays with a mobile phone while riding in a New York subway in December. Two major Apple investors urged the iPhone maker to take action to curb growing smartphone use among children.Updated at 3:42 p.m. ETApple on Monday announced a new app to allow users to get reports on how much their kids are using particular apps on their iPhones and iPads.Apple is calling the app Screen Time, and it will let parents set time limits on how long their children can use apps, from Netflix to Snapchat, said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering. Screen Time would also allow parents to limit access to some apps and websites. One option is designed to get kids to unplug from their devices at bedtime.The new feature — announced at the company’s annual conference for developers in San Jose, Calif. — will be part of the next Apple mobile operating system, iOS 12, which is expected out later this year.Users will now be able to get a few summary of the time they spend on the phone and how long they are on certain apps. Users will also be able to set a time limit for themselves on a particular app.“We know, this is something that can help families achieve the right balance for them,” Federighi said.Apple also launched a “Families” webpage in March, outlining ways in which parents can utilize the company’s pre-existing features.“We first introduced parental controls for iPhone in 2008, and our team has worked thoughtfully over the years to add features to help parents manage their children’s content,” Federighi said.Apple’s announcement Monday follows pressure from activist shareholders to take the lead in developing controls to help parents limit iPhone use by teens and children.In January, Jana Partners and the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, or CalSTRS, wrote a letter to Apple about growing “societal unease” about overuse of technology and in particular smart phones, which at some point could turn people away from buying Apple products. They called upon Apple to take a stronger role in helping parents control their children’s use of electronic devices.CalSTRS and Jana, which, combined, owned about $2 billion in Apple stock, say the company could help minimize “unintentional negative consequences” of overusing digital devices and spending too much time on social media.Charles Penner, a partner with Jana Partners, said the investment firm sees Apple’s latest moves as positive.“We’re still reviewing it, but Apple appears to have addressed the vast majority of our concerns, and we look forward to seeing their follow-through,” Penner said.One study by nonprofit group Common Sense Media said that 78 percent of teens check their phones at least hourly and 50 percent report feeling “addicted” to their phones.Right now, controls give two options — all on or all off. Shareholders want more options for controls that help with screen-time management. They also requested that Apple convene a panel to study the issue.Monday’s announcement addresses some of the concerns of the shareholders.Apple’s initiative is the latest push from technology companies under pressure to address smartphone addiction.“We need to have tools and data to allow us to understand how we consume digital media,” Tony Fadell, a former senior Apple executive, told Bloomberg in May. “We need to get finer-grain language and start to understand that an iPhone is just a refrigerator, it’s not the addiction.”Google announced similar controls in May for its Android P operating system, which include expanded do-not-disturb controls and ways to track app usage. Google introduced a “wind down” mode that changes the screen’s brightness and color scale later in the evenings. The new software will also allow users to set time limits on apps, similar to what Apple plans to roll out.Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/. Sharelast_img read more

DC Candidates Empathize with Working Class

first_imgMuriel Bowser said she will institute programs that will help create good paying jobs for residents.When Muriel Bowser, D.C. Councilmember and Democratic mayoral candidate,  put on a maid’s uniform Sept. 2 and worked half of a day in the Marriott Marquis hotel, she said she learned a lot about the struggles of domestic workers and what she wants to do to help. “[As mayor] I will institute real programs for residents that will help create good paying jobs for our workers,” she said.Bowser accepted an invitation by members of the UNITE HERE Local 25, who represents hotel workers, to see how domestics work for a day. The Ward 4 lawmaker said she was serious about the assignment. “I do not do stunts,” Bowser said Sept. 6. “I was asked by a group of women who work as maids to see how their lives are. I now understand the challenges that they face on a daily basis as they try to do their jobs and raise their families.”Bowser listened intently to the women talk about their lives as she worked alongside them. She heard about how their wages force them to manage thriftily their personal and household budgets. They also told her of the physical toll that the job takes on them and that after work; they have to devote substantial energy to their personal lives also. Bowser said the experience sensitized her to the needs of the maids.She said that as mayor, she would focus on city’s economic development and its benefits for residents. “The hotel where I worked has generated hundreds of new jobs for District residents since it opened and I will continue to bring those types of [jobs-generating] projects to the city,” Bowser said.At-Large D.C. Council candidate Khalid Pitts lived on minimum wage recently.Bowser is not the only political candidate trying to show sensitivity toward working-class Washingtonians. Non-Democratic at-large candidates Michael Brown, Wendell Felder, the Rev. Graylan Hagler, Khalid Pitts, Eugene Puryear, Elissa Silverman, Courtney Snowden, and Robert White participated in an OurDC-sponsored event. OurDC is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of struggling District residents.The at-large candidates agreed to live on a minimum-wage salary for the week of Sept. 1-7. Bowser, independent mayoral candidates David Catania and Carol Schwartz as well as D.C. Council member Anita Bonds (D-At Large), running for re-election, declined to participate in the OurDC project.White, Silverman and Pitts regularly updated their Twitter accounts  regarding their spending habits. Pitts said he is glad he participated in the project. “I’m running for the D.C. Council to be a voice for working-class families, the moms and single parents in this city, particularly those who are tired of making difficult decisions about where to educate their children, but also those who are living on minimum-wage, living paycheck to paycheck,” he said.Stanley Mayes, a Ward 1 political activist, said he is not impressed with the candidates’ focus on life problems for a single day. “It is nice and symbolic, but what do you intend to do about the problem?” he said. “What type of policies will you implement to help working-class people? This is not about publicity but about helping people live in this city.”last_img read more

NAACP Outlines July Baltimore Convention Plans

first_imgThe National Association for the Advancement of Colored People held a kickoff for its annual convention at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture on Feb 3. Attendees at the news conference included NAACP Baltimore President Tessa Ashton-Hill, Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh and former NAACP National President Benjamin Jealous.Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh was one of several guest speakers during the NAACP announcement of its plans to hold its convention in Baltimore in July. (Courtesy photo)Joan M. Pratt, Baltimore City Comptroller and Bernard C. “Jack” Young, President of the City Council and the Rev. Kevin A. Slayton, Sr., of New Waverly UMC were in attendance. Slayton opened the proceeding with an invocation.The NAACP has so far announced 12 speakers including Chairman of the NAACP Board of Directors Roslyn M. Brock, NAACP President and CEO Cornell WIlliam Brooks and General Counsel Bradford Berry. Topics will cover the NAACP’s Continuing Legal Education program (CLE) and the NAACP’s Afro-Academic, Cultural Technology and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) and Youth and College outreach.The NAACP, founded and still headquartered in Baltimore, will hold its annual convention at the Baltimore Convention Center from July 22 through July 26. The convention ratifies annual policy and plan actions for the coming year. This year’s convention will be the 108th since the NAACP’s founding in 1909.The NAACP has not released a complete schedule of events and speakers as of yet, but the slate runs from July 19 through to July 26.Jealous described the evolution of the NAACP as a history inseparable from Baltimore.“You literally cannot explain the power of the NAACP without talking about Baltimore,” Jealous told the AFRO. “Baltimore is the home of our greatest lobbyist in the history of the NAACP: Clarence Mitchell. It’s the home to the greatest lawyer in the history of the NAACP: Thurgood Marshall. It’s also home to one of a very small number of Black newspapers that really helped build the NAACP. Of course, the AFRO and the Murphy Family.”As the NAACP prepares to determine its future, Jealous pointed out how it directly determines the future of Baltimore, a city that saw an uprising following the death of Freddie Gray in police custody in 2015 and in 2016 experienced a record number of homicides.“The current issues facing Baltimore also speak to the present importance of the NAACP,” Jealous said. “Whether it’s the consent decree signed by our new mayor to undo patterns of mistreatment that developed under past mayors. Whether it’s the spirit of the protests at BWI these past weekends, people have said many times in history that we’ve never needed the NAACP more than we’ve needed it right now. Whether it’s issues in our schools or in our streets or continued discrimination in corporate suites throughout Baltimore, we’ve never needed the NAACP more than we need it right now. And President Trump reminds us of that every day.”last_img read more

Baltimore Business Owners Making Plans for Black Restaurant Week

first_imgBaltimore Restaurant Week has grown into a major city-wide attraction, but minority-owned restaurants are not often visible participants in the event. A group of several African-American restaurateurs and Radio One hope to change that with the creation of the Urban Life Restaurant Week, scheduled to take place between Jan. 26 and Feb. 4.The group gathered on Oct. 26 to discuss plans for the event, with an eye on generating new patrons for participating African-American-owned businesses. Radio One’s Baltimore stations look to support the new 10-day event with advertising targeted at their estimated 1.2 million listeners.Among the ideas proposed at the meeting were shuttles to ferry patrons between the participating restaurants; the inclusion of partners such as the Downtown Partnership and the established Baltimore Restaurant Week; and a budget for the new event.There are currently 30 to 40 Black-owned restaurants in the Greater Baltimore area, including Baltimore County, Howard County, and Anne Arundel County. Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh and Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz both said they support the idea and would welcome its expansion into their counties.last_img read more

Downloading case to have 23000 defendants

first_img © 2010 PhysOrg.com (PhysOrg.com) — How many of you remember the film The Expendables? It was an action flick, featuring some of the biggest names in blowing things up, and soon it will be known as the film that has created the largest illegal-BitTorrent-downloading case in U.S. history. Stolen ‘X-Men’ flick leaps onto Internet A federal judge recently gave the U.S. Copyright Group the right to subpoena the records of Internet service providers in order to see who downloaded the movie illegally. So, while 23,000 is the current expected number of defendants that number may increase by leaps and bounds as more downloads are found. When an ISP gets a subpoena they will generally tell the account holder that their subscriber information is being shared with the Copyright Group, pursuant to their investigations. So, if you are part of this suit, you will likely find out sooner rather than later. This is not the Copyright Groups only attempt to take legal action against bit torrents. One the whole, this group is taking legal action against roughly 140,000 BitTorrent downloaders, primarily for downloading B-movies and pornography. Eventually, these kinds of suits will become a bigger revenue stream than the films sales themselves. Under the current U.S. copyright law damages of up to $150,000 per infringement can be obtained. For a film that only grossed $103,068,524 domestic, if this level of damages were paid, the dollar figure would well out pace film sales. With subpoenas are expected to go out this week, one has to wonder if this is not a good time to not only forget about the bit torrenting, but also about feature films altogether. After all, if these users had wanted the film that badly, they could have bought it for roughly $20 or rented it for $6, and none of them chose to do so. That may speak to the quality of the film, as much as the ethics of the fans. Image credit: Chaapscenter_img Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

GAO Report Examines PostRecession Bank Collapses

first_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Bank Failure FDIC GAO Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers Treasury Department 2013-01-04 Krista Franks Brock January 4, 2013 446 Views From 2008 through 2011, 414 banks failed across the nation, resulting in estimated costs to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) of about $42.8 billion, according to a recent “”report””:http://www.gao.gov/assets/660/651155.pdf by the “”Government Accountability Office (GOA).””:http://www.gao.gov/[IMAGE]Thus far, the DIF has doled out about $16.2 billion in shared loss payments, and it is expected to pay about $26.6 billion more. In order to minimize losses, the FDIC entered shared loss agreements for 281 out of the total 414 failed institutions. In a shared loss agreement, the FDIC agrees to incur part of the losses when another bank agrees to purchase the failed bank. GOA found that in many cases the purchasing institutions would not have been willing to absorb the shuttered banks without a shared loss agreement with the FDIC. [COLUMN_BREAK]The FDIC estimates liquidating all failed banks’ assets would cost the DIF $40 billion more than the current costs through the shared loss agreements. Additionally, the FDIC suggests shared loss agreements ensure “”reductions in immediate cash needs, less disruption to failed bank customers, and the movement of assets quickly into the private sector,”” according to GOA. When examining the cause of bank failures from 2008 through 2011, GOA found banks with less than $1 billion in assets were especially vulnerable to commercial real estate losses. GOA also found instances of “”nontraditional, riskier funding sources”” and “”weak underwriting and credit administration practices”” in many failed banks. Both the Treasury and the Financial Stability Forum’s Working Group on Loss Provisioning suggest “”earlier recognition of loan losses could have potentially lessened the impact of the crisis,”” according to GAO’s report. In response to this line of thinking, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued a proposal for a forward-looking loan loss provisioning model. In 10 states, 10 or more commercial bank or thrifts failed during the four-year period. While those states represent geographically diverse areas, they also tend to cluster in regions. For example, the West and Pacific Northwest have a group of four states (California, Washington, Arizona, and Nevada) with 10 or more failures, as does the area near the Great Lakes (Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan, and Missouri).

first_imgA group of teachers at the Hala Sultan Theology College in the north have complained to the ‘education ministry’ saying students are being forcibly woken up during the night to pray and being subjected to “religious pressure” by ‘vocational teachers’ sent from Turkey, Kibris daily reported on Tuesday.The group allege the ‘vocational teachers’ from Turkey act as though they are the real administrators of the school and that their practices are contrary to the constitution of north, according to a letter they sent to the ‘ministry’.“We are observing and dealing with unconstitutional practices that do not fit with our customs and traditions,” the document obtained by Kibris states.While stating the school is not being inspected by the relevant authorities, the group say they are being told by students that the ‘elder’ students at school forcibly wake them up to pray and make a record of this.“We see that those students that stay in the dorms are regularly tired and sleep deprived.”The group also say that under the guise of vocational lessons, students are being incentivised with expensive gifts for Qur’an recital competitions, with awards ranging from laptops, gold and trips to Mecca.Female students in relationships are encouraged to leave their boyfriends unless they marry them with their parents’ consent and students that wear the headscarf get congratulated, according to the group of teachers.“The most deplorable thing perhaps is that some middle school students have said to some of our teachers, ‘I’m willing to become a martyr to enter heaven’”.The Hala Sultan Theology College is a middle and high school which prepares students for university. It has regularly made the headlines in the north and a teacher’s union has unsuccessfully tried to get the state school shut down.The group say that the headmaster of the school has been practically sidelined by the vocational teachers from Turkey.They say they have been accused of encouraging “western imperialist” and “Christian” traditions on students in the run up to the new year.Comments like “students will turn to stone if they celebrate Christmas” were common, the group said.The group called on the education ministry to urgently look into the matter and take necessary action.You May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.
