The Friers Offshore Racing Supercat has been rebranded Team Navy for the 2012 and 2013 seasons. Navy also has a five-year agreement with Ford Performance Racing where two Marine Technician sailors join the supercar team for a year working as fabricators, mechanics, and machinists.For the record, the Team Navy Supercat retained the Australian Championship title for their class and won the coveted Aus 1 Championship across all three classes.Navy will also be cheering for Chas as he aims to take out the championship in the last race of the 2012 season during the Sydney Telstra 500.[mappress]Naval Today Staff,November 29, 2012; Image: Australian Navy View post tag: Supercat View post tag: Naval View post tag: teamlast_img read more

No appeal for Queen’s ex-pres

first_imgNathan Roberts, removed as Queen’s JCR President at the start of term, has been denied the right to appeal the college’s decision.Earlier this week the Provost informed him that the Governing Body would not be hearing his appeal, which had been due to take place on Wednesday.Elected during Trinity Term, Roberts was removed from his post by the college authorities after they deemed his prelims results unsatisfactory. Reacting to the news Roberts said, “The Provost wrote to me explaining that he has decided I can only appeal expulsion or rustication. This is a seriously concerning decision.“In unnecessarily refusing me an appeal he has said that the committee can make any decision it likes. It can force the student to give up sport, it can force the student to stop playing in the local youth band, it can force the student to walk around on his or her hands all day, and these actions are apparently beyond scrutiny or accountability.“Despite implying to me that an appeal was certainly an option, the Provost has suddenly reversed his decision and in doing so undermined both the JCR and me.”The Queen’s College informed Cherwell that they had no comment to make.Last week thirty JCR presidents signed a statement of support for Roberts, offering their “complete confidence and support.”OUSU President Stefan Baskerville today reaffirmed his support for Roberts. “The denial of Nathan’s right to appeal is wrong and unacceptable. Right of appeal is a very basic part of any fair disciplinary process, and the college’s claim that students may only appeal decisions to expel or rusticate them is a serious error of interpretation. I continue to support Nathan’s right to appeal the decision.”Jesse Harber, St Hilda’s JCR President, said “I’m disappointed in the decision of the Queen’s SCR not to allow him to appeal – it sets a precedent that in the future will really short-change students who feel that they have been wronged. It’s a sad fact that disciplinary procedures vary wildly across colleges, and an unlucky student can find themselves being severely punished for something that is only a minor offense at another college. This is entirely separate to the issue of whether his original dismissal was acceptable. Whether a decision is correct or not, it should always (within reason) be allowed to be appealed.”Owen Evans, St Anne’s JCR President, said that “Nathan has strong support among the JCR Presidents, and we will continue to support in any way we can.”Duncan Cook, Jesus JCR President, has also given his support. He commented, “I believe all students should have the right to select their own extra-curricular activities.”The Provost still has the option of reversing his decision, and Roberts is hopeful that he will do so. “There is no ‘harm’ in allowing me to argue my case, and I in fact think this most recent ruling is the most damaging of all.“I understand a teddy-bear is standing in the upcoming presidential elections. Teddy will have my vote.”last_img read more

Mayor’s Message: Storm Update

first_imgDear Friends, We are monitoring Hurricane Dorian as it moves northward. The most recent forecasts call for the storm to move well out to sea before passing by Ocean City on Friday and early Saturday, and we do not anticipate any major impact. But I would like everybody to err on the side of caution and preparation. Under any circumstance, we can expect strong winds starting on Thursday and peaking on Friday night with gusts up to 40 or 50 mph.  Please secure construction sites and loose objects on your property and be aware that driving conditions could be hazardous. The forecast also includes rain for Friday, and streets could see minor flooding, particularly in the hours around high tide at 2:55 p.m. Friday and 3:21 a.m. Saturday. Monitor conditions and be prepared to move vehicles from streets that typically experience flooding. At this time, there are no coastal flood advisories posted. But we will provide updates if they are issued. The surf will build rapidly through Friday evening and swimming conditions will be dangerous. Please avoid the ocean as the storm passes. Rough surf will continue through the weekend as the weather improves. Remember to swim only at beaches guarded by the Ocean City Beach Patrol. See list. As always, check on your friends and neighbors to make sure they are aware and prepared for the approaching storm. For Police and Fire Department emergencies, call 911. For non-emergencies, call 609-399-9111. Warm regards,Mayor Jay A. Gillian Mayor Jay Gillianlast_img read more

Vermont is “The Healthiest State in the Nation”

first_imgUntitled Document Vermont is The HealthiestState in the Nation Montpelier (November 5, 2007) Vermont is the healthiest state in the nation, according to the 2007 edition of Americas Health Rankings, released today by the United Health Foundation. This is the first time Vermont has captured the top spot, climbing steadily from being ranked eighth in 2001. Vermont surpassed the previous leader Minnesota, which was ranked second this year.According to the United Health Foundation, Vermont is among the top 10 states in 14 of 20 measures. The states strengths include high immunization coverage with 86 percent of children between the ages of 19 to 35 months receiving complete immunizations, and a low premature death rate.The quality of care provided by Vermonts physicians and other health care providers is a significant reason for the states top ranking, said Paul Harrington, executive vice president of the Vermont Medical Society. Vermont physicians work extremely hard to make sure all their patients have the best possible health care, despite the fact that reimbursement rates here tend to be lower than other parts of the country. I think it really speaks to the dedication and skills of Vermonts physician community, he said.While about 10 percent of Vermonts population is uninsured (the ninth lowest rate in the country), Vermonts physicians do provide a large amount of free care to their patients who lack coverage and cannot afford to pay, noted Glen Neale, M.D., president of the Vermont Medical Society. Vermonts physicians are very generous with their time, because they realize the importance of everyone having access to good health care, he said. That is also evidenced by the fact that about 91 percent of Vermonts physicians participate in the states Medicaid program, despite reimbursement that is about half of what commercial insurers pay.The adequacy of prenatal care has been one area where Vermont has seen major improvements, going from 62.6 percent of pregnant women having adequate care in 1990 to 86.4 percent in 2007 (second highest in the nation). Infant mortality has dropped from 9.2 deaths per 1,000 live births in 1990 to 5.3 deaths per 1,000 live births in 2007.The number of cardiovascular deaths has declined from 409 per 100,000 of population in 1990 to 287.9 per 100,000 in 2007. The number of cancer deaths has shrunk from 209.2 per 100,000 of population in 1990 to 195.4 per 100,000 in 2007.A number of public health factors have influenced Vermonts steady rise to the top of the rankings, the United Health Foundation said. For example, since 1990 the prevalence of smoking in Vermont has decreased from 30.7 percent to 18 percent of the adult population, and the incidence of infectious disease decreased from 20.3 to 6.4 cases per 100,000 population.Vermonts physicians have been working with the Vermont Department of Health and following guidelines for improving public health, Dr. Neale said. Being ranked the healthiest state in the nation is an indicator that our efforts are paying off.Reference: http://www.unitedhealthfoundation.org/ahr2007/states/Vermont.html(link is external)last_img read more

A couple of questions before trying to make money from home

John manages the content on the site, including current news, editorial, press releases, jobs and events. He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details We’re living in a weird time right now. A lot of us are adjusting to working from home, but others aren’t lucky enough to have that option. If you’re at home and can’t work, you may be looking for other ways to make money. If you’re not willing to spend your day filling out surveys, you might have a hobby that you’re thinking about monetizing. If you’ve considered it, here are a couple of questions you should ask before investing in your side hustle…Do I have something people will buy?: Whether you’re providing a product or a service, the key to making money is having a product that people want or need. So before you start advertising your product on your Facebook page, you need to ask yourself whether or not your hobby has the potential to be a money-maker or if needs to remain a hobby for you to enjoy as you choose. You may enjoy building rocking chairs, but you may want to line up some buyers before you start crankin’ them out.Do I have a good plan?: Sometimes a hobby is relaxing but may not be as fun if it’s taking up a ton of your time. If you want to make money off of a hobby, you need to be sure that it’s something you’ll really enjoy spending your time on. You may enjoy helping your son with his math homework, but do you really want to tutor your neighbors kid? Have you figured out how much profit you can make vs. how much time you’re going to end up spending on it? You’ll also need to figure out how you’re going to manage your time so you can bake/create/build and still do the other things that you need to do to continue going about your life.If money is getting tight, an internet business might help, just make sure it’s going to truly have a positive effect before you start investing all your time and a chunk of your money on it.last_img read more
