NIIW also celebrates the milestones achieved in controlling vaccine-preventable diseases among infants worldwide as a result of immunization.“Families, healthcare professionals, and public health officials must work together to help protect the entire community,” said Dr. Kevin M. Sherin, DOH-Orange Health Officer. “Immunization is a shared responsibility.”NIIW is a call to action for parents, caregivers and healthcare providers to ensure that all children are protected from birth against 14 serious childhood illnesses. It is important that parents and health care providers work together to follow the recommended Advisory Committee on Immunizations (ACIP) schedule to protect infants and children by providing immunity early in life before they encounter potentially life-threatening diseases.The department is committed to increasing the rate of immunization among Florida’s children under two years of age. Recently, the department worked with a diverse group of public and private partners to update the State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP). Over the next five years, the department and partners will work to increase access to immunizations for infants and pregnant women and increase access to vaccine-preventable diseases in children and teens.To learn more about the department’s immunization-related goals, visit the SHIP page.About the Florida Department of HealthThe department, nationally accredited by the Public Health Accreditation Board, works to protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county and community efforts.

Poor and working people throughout Wisconsin began mobilizing to defeat an anti-worker bill just after they heard right-wing Wisconsin state senators’ Feb. 20 announcement that they would “fast track” a right-to-work (for-less) bill through the Senate. Many organizations called for a protest in Milwaukee on Feb. 23 and the Wisconsin AFL-CIO set protests for the state capital, Madison, on Feb. 24 and 25. (facebook.com/defeatrighttowork)The senators’ stated goal is to ram through the RTW bill with no public hearings and with a vote by affirmation by Feb. 25. The bill would still need to pass the Wisconsin State Assembly, which is also right-wing controlled. The right wing and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker aim to pass and sign the bill in two weeks.Walker had said repeatedly during his latest gubernatorial campaign that RTW was not his focus. He lied. Immediately after the senators’ announcements, Walker said he would sign the RTW bill. Like other right-wing legislative and gubernatorial attacks on the people during Walker’s administration, ramming through the RTW bill is part of an organized, coordinated campaign. It’s a class war paid for by the Bradley Foundation, the Koch brothers, ALEC, the Mackinac Center, Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce, the Greater Milwaukee Committee, Milwaukee 7 and other Wall Street and Pentagon interests, with the banks and bondholders taking the lead.The RTW bill is just one in a series of vicious attacks on organized labor and communities throughout Wisconsin. With Act 10, Wall Street declared war in 2011, virtually eliminating collective bargaining for public sector workers and imposing wage cuts on state workers in the form of higher co-payments for state health insurance and pensions. Since then, austerity measures in Wisconsin have diminished or wiped out safety nets for the people, such as unemployment insurance; food stamps; protections for women, people of color, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people; and senior care.This year’s legislative session, which began in January, is a virtual scorched earth campaign against the working class and oppressed peoples in Wisconsin. Bills propose to dismantle and semiprivatize the University of Wisconsin system, strip world-renowned environmental policies and regulations, cut public education funding, implement drug testing for anyone receiving public benefits and more. Every sector of working-class Wisconsin is facing severe austerity with these bills — with people of color throughout the state but especially in Milwaukee to receive the worst effects if these bills are implemented.Classwide labor-community offensiveThe labor, community and student organization — the Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement — issued an appeal in December calling for a labor-community general strike to defeat the RTW legislation, based in part on the successful historical examples of general strikes in the United States in Minneapolis, San Francisco and Toledo in 1934; in Oakland in 1946; and the “11 Days of Action in Ontario” from 1995 to 1998. The appeal gives detailed examples of how to build for a general strike and includes a clause from the United Auto Workers constitution that “in states of great emergency” the president and a two-thirds vote of the International’s executive board have the authority to call a general strike.The WI BOPM appeal reads in part:“Unions are not a ‘special interest’ apart from our suffering communities and all workers — unorganized, retired, young, immigrant or unemployed. Along with uniting all the unions, we must bring in the many community groups affected. Labor must make their problems our own. ‘Social unionism’ can take a big leap forward. While proceeding to authorize the general strike, unions and community groups should convene a huge assembly of the people in Wisconsin. Starting now, all union halls and resources should be available to fight RTW and to support community struggles, especially ones led by Black, Brown and poor white youth, most of whom are unemployed or low-wage workers.”The appeal concludes:“Community organizations, church leaders, people of color fighting back against police abuse, women, the LGBTQ community, the education community, foreclosure victims, the unemployed, low-wage workers, the Occupy Wall Street movement, immigrants and all others who are under attack by the international austerity assault must be brought together to prepare for the general strike. Demands must be shaped to make the largest majority of the people of the state understand that we are fighting for everyone. In a state where local and state politicians only represent the 1%, an assembly of the 99% should have commanding authority.”For updates and how to join the struggle to beat back RTW: wisaflcio.typepad.com and wibailoutpeople.orgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Fort Worth resident dedicates life to rescuing dogs Twitter Twitter Tobi Carter printThrough the development of TCU Frog Camp and Orientation, John Mark Day, the director of the first-year experience, has impacted the lives of incoming Horned Frogs for more than 13 years.Now, Day is leaving TCU to become the director of leadership and campus life at Oklahoma State University.Caleb Ashbrook, a Frog Camp director for the Paris and Summit camps, said, “You can’t really quantify how much of an effect he has because in some way, shape, or form, he has essentially touched every single person that has come through TCU in the past 13 years.”Ashbrook said that Day taught him how to use his strengths as a leader when they were leading Frog Camp Paris, the Frog Camp offered for honors students.Day’s colleagues in Student Development Services agreed.“I know I’m supposed to say I’m happy for him, but I’m super bummed because this is a huge loss for TCU,” Lindsay Knight, assistant director of the first-year experience, said.Knight said that Day was a staple of the TCU community through his impact on other people.“He kind of is TCU,” Knight said.Day’s charge is to develop students’ leadership skills outside of the classroom. At TCU, Day focused on the first-year experience and helped develop incoming students through Frog Camp and Orientation. At OSU, Day will be working for a campus that has 20,453 students enrolled.“The first thing I’m going to do when I get up there is ask a lot of questions and spend a lot of time meeting people,” Day said. “I’m going to really learn who the students are, what their values are, and what the values of the university are. Then I’m going to ask myself, ‘How do we meet these goals? How do we keep pushing the OSU student experience forward?’”Day said he took the job at OSU because it’s time for him to grow and move somewhere new.“It’s going to be a big change, obviously,” Day said. “I’ll get to be really hands-on with their Student Government Association, which is a new thing for me. I don’t work with SGA here directly. I’m excited to work with their campus activities and arts programming and see how all of that comes together.”Knight and Trung Nguyen, the other assistant director of the first-year experience, are splitting Day’s responsibilities until his successor is named. The search for an interim director is in its final stages. A search for a permanent successor is expected to begin in the spring semester.Dr. Barbara Brown Herman, the associate vice chancellor for student affairs and dean of student development, said that she wanted to be intentional with the search for a permanent replacement.Herman said, “I think it’s important to take our time and be intentional about searches. I also think it’s important for our existing staff to have an opportunity for input and contribution.”Day graduated from TCU with bachelor’s degrees in religion and news-editorial journalism. He also holds a master’s degree from TCU and Dallas Theological Seminary, and recently graduated from Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College with a Doctorate of Education. He accomplished all these things while working for TCU.Day began his TCU career as an admissions counselor before moving to Student Development Services.Video Playerhttp://tcu360.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Periscope.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundDownload File: http://tcu360.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Periscope.mp4?_=100:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.John Mark Day and Victor Boschini gave speeches at Day’s farewell reception on August 26.

In fact, excess green energy from the hotel an income of €20,000 when it was shut due to Covid 19 restrictions.Other projects included switching to renewable electricity and Bio LPG gas, using water from the hotel’s own well and planting 350 native Irish trees on the hotel grounds.A green team was also set up to encourage staff to become fully involved in all of the hotel’s sustainability initiatives. These include using chemical free cleaning products, compostable cups and straws and cutting back on food waste.Being based in the Burren and Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark and a member of the Burren Ecotourism Network, the owners of the hotel, the McCarthy family were conscious of trying to reduce their environmental impact on the area around them. The move to renewable energy was also driven by demand from guests, locals and staff.Michael McCarthy, General Manager, Falls Hotel, said “We are delighted to receive this recognition, especially given the huge investment we have made with our hydroelectric plant.“We are extremely proud of this award. With 140 bedrooms, a leisure centre and a spa complex on a 50 acre site we went from having a large carbon footprint to being carbon neutral in five short years; it’s a massive achievement.”‘Being based in an area of such natural beauty, as the Burren, we felt compelled to do our best to minimise our impact on the area around us. Utilizing the power of the river alongside us seemed the best place to start our sustainability journey.’The idea of harnessing energy from the nearby river Inagh is not new. In the 1960’s the hotel’s previous owners Bridget and John F Woods recognised the potential of the cascades to generate electricity for the then 20 bedroom hotel. The couple had installed a 30-kWH hydroelectric plant on the site, which was then upgraded by the McCarthy family into the current 220 kWH hydroelectric turbine.A year after it was completed in 2019 the property had reduced its energy consumption by 830,000 kWh of electricity. This counteracts the emission of an estimated 550 tonnes of carbon and is the equivalent of offsetting three return trips, by car, to the moon.The 220kw turbine which Is located next to the Inagh river provides up to 70% of the hotel’s annual energy needs. In winter this can reach 100%, when the river is in full flow. During drier spells, the hotel tops its energy from renewable electricity sources. Any excess electricity will be sold back to the national grid or there are plans to install a battery unit which can store electricity which can be used by the hotel later.Sustainability not only guides the management of all operations at the hotel, but is at the heart of the guest experience.All guests are also encouraged to play their part, whether it’s reusing towels, using less water, turning off lights and heat or dividing their rubbish into separate bins in their rooms. It’s all part of a concerted effort to educate visitors on the importance of sustainability.The story of the hotel’s journey to sustainability will be told on storyboards located around the hotel and next to the hydro-electric pump house beside the river. More trees will be planted annually and guests will be encouraged to offset their own carbon footprint by adopting a tree.“It is our responsibility to take direct action to minimise our environmental footprint and we have additional plans to further reduce our absolute consumption and drive even greater levels of sustainability within the hotel” Mr McCarthy added.

Philine gibba is redescribed using large samples collected from the original type locality (South Georgia, South Atlantic). The specimens examined are compatible with all but one previous description which differs sufficiently to require re-identification. Aspects of the anatomy described here differ in details from earlier studies and it is suggested that previous descriptions are partly erroneous owing to the examination of unrelaxed specimens and some atypical material from small samples.
