Buddy Bear’s life in the big swamp near the Wekiva River

first_img Reply Reply Richard, I can’t help but imagine that Papa God has created each of us with a keen sense of adventure. I followed Buddy bear for over a year for as much as eight and ten hours a day and he taught me a lot about a bear’s life in that time. Bless you my friend, Chaz August 26, 2019 at 2:05 pm Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 August 25, 2019 at 10:15 am I remember Buddy, he was quite the caracter. NH charles towne August 30, 2019 at 8:17 am InspirationBy Charles TowneBuddy bear was only about a year old when I met him and he taught me a lot as I followed him.  One of the things he taught me is that bears, all bears, have a finely honed curiosity.As I followed the little guy on his explorations he was prone to examine each and every hole in the ground, hollow tree, and rotten log to see what it might contain. Sometimes his explorations would pay off with a nest of delectable ants or some sweet and juicy grubs, but then one day it happened, the little bear stuck his head in the wrong hole.In that hole, minding its own business, taking a nap, or some other mundane activity, was a snake.  The snake could very well have been a diamondback rattlesnake, but luckily for Buddy, it was an average-sized, generic black racer.  As we all know black racers are harmless members of the snaky kind, but Buddy didn’t understand harmless. The black racer came boiling out of that hole right into Buddy bear’s face.Buddy, in case you are wondering, knew he was about to be eaten by that vicious, raging, in your face SNAKE!In case you didn’t know, bears consider all snakes deadly, and from generations of bad experiences taught them by venomous members of the snaky kind, are wise to avoid all snakes, all the time.When the black racer erupted from that hole into Buddy’s face it frightened the little bear so bad that he proved, beyond a benefit of the doubt, that bears do in fact, “bleep” In the woods.My courageous little bear friend was so frightened he fell over backward, landing on his broad bear behind, and then, moaning all the while he dashed up a nearby oak tree to sit up there staring down at the ground as though he expected the snake to follow him, while he cried and whimpered and pouted for the next hour.Editor’s Note: Please stay tuned next week for another episode from Buddy bear’s life growing up in the big swamp next to central Florida’s beautiful Wekiva River) Charles Towne is first and foremost a Christian.

Defending Trans lives: Solidarity forever starts with solidarity today

first_imgThe following statement was distributed by United Steelworkers Local 8751, the Boston School Bus Drivers Union, at Boston Pride on June 11.Members of United Steelworkers Local 8751 — Boston School Bus Drivers Union — are proud to be marching in solidarity with the LGBTQ community. We have been a presence in Pride for decades. This is how we put into practice the classic union slogan, “An injury to one is an injury to all.”In December, after a 26-month fight, our united, fighting membership won the reinstatement of our four fired union leaders. Simultaneously, we got the union-hating Veolia/Transdev to sign a contract that maintained and improved upon everything our local has fought for and won through 40 years of struggle. This included an amendment to our non-discrimination clause to add the words “gender identity” and “gender expression.” The security of a union contract, backed up by the solidarity of a rank-and-file and leadership committed to eradicating bigotry of every kind, is the best protection a worker has.Defending the trans community, especially trans people of color, has never been more important. Thus far this year 20 transpeople are known to have been murdered, nearly all of them Black and Brown. North Carolina has passed HB (“Hate Bill”) 2 that criminalizes anyone who uses a toilet stall not coinciding with their sex assigned at birth. Anti-trans bathroom bills are popping up all over the country.We say that it is no crime to break the rigid codes of gender conduct imposed on the LGBTQ community and on women. In fact, it is a heroic act of defiance that will make the world a freer place for everyone to be who they are!On every front, from Black Lives Matter to the movement to flush HB2, from our own union’s triumph against Veolia to the victorious Verizon strike, workers and oppressed people are showing the world that it is possible to fight back and win against capitalism, racism and patriarchal oppression.Solidarity forever! Let us hear you say union!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Only the Strong Will Survive in a Tough Farm Economy

first_img SHARE Only the Strong Will Survive in a Tough Farm Economy SHARE By Gary Truitt – Feb 21, 2017 Previous articleResolution Designates Indiana Agricultural Literacy WeekNext articleMidwest Lawmakers Seek E-15 Volatility Relief from New EPA Chief Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Only the Strong Will Survive in a Tough Farm Economy Only the Strong Will Survive in a Tough Farm EconomyDr. Matt RobertsIt has been a common theme at winter farm meetings this year: concern about the future farm economy and how to survive it. This was the case at the First Farmers Bank and Trust meeting held in Marion on Tuesday.  The presentation given by Dr. Matt Roberts, with The Kernmantle Group and formerly with Ohio University Extension, stressed that only “strong” farms stand a good chance of surviving the tough economic times ahead.  He urged growers to think of their farming operations as separate parts of a whole, “A modern grain farm is really made up of 6 different businesses: agronomy, land ownership, futures speculations, grain elevation, custom machine operation, and capital allocation.”  He added each segment must be as efficient and forward thinking as possible to  survive in the times ahead. Roberts suggested that this segmentation might even go as far as having a separate balance sheet for each field to better determine cost of production and profit potential on different fields.  He said this approach can help determine if a cash rent agreement is worth it for a particular piece of ground.Roberts said one of the most important factors that will determine an operations survivability is its land costs. “One of the biggest differences between high cost and low cost producers is land rent. I think what will determine who thrives and survives in the next few years will be who can get their land costs under control,” he stated.  He sees land values continuing to fall, but believes this will not have a detrimental impact on agriculture. He said 60% of Midwest farmland is cash rented. Thus, if a farm fails, that land will just be farmed by someone else.Roberts said building a strong farm is also building a legacy. By keeping food records, collecting lots of data, and planning for the future, growers can not only assure their farms will be strong enough to handle tough times, but that they will be a legacy that can pass along to the next generation.The First Farmers Bank and Trust annual seminar always draws a good crowd for a good program. There were, however, a few empty chairs this year because some producers stayed home to apply anhydrous as the late February temperatures climbed above 60 degrees.last_img read more

CIELA waits to see if advertising watchdog decision will go its way

first_imgHome » News » Associations & Bodies » CIELA waits to see if advertising watchdog decision will go its way previous nextAssociations & BodiesCIELA waits to see if advertising watchdog decision will go its wayFledgling member organisation fires its latest salvo in war with the hybrid agent.Nigel Lewis30th June 20170976 Views The rolling war of attrition between The Charter for Independent Estate and Letting Agents (CIELA) and Purplebricks has witnessed its latest battle.CIELA says it has been receiving weekly updates from the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) regarding its complaint about the hybrid agent’s “misleading representations” within its website and TV advertising.In its statement released to media outlets, CIELA is clearly confident that its arguments to the ASA have done the trick, and that “we look forward to the outcome”.Although CIELA admits that nothing within Purplebricks’ communications is inaccurate, it says the company’s comparisons of its up-front flat fee with a tradition agent’s commission is “irresponsible and misleading”.Elements of its complaint to the ASA were repeated within a Daily Telegraph article published in May, in which CIELA chief executive Charlie Wright questioned Purplebricks’ high completed sales claims.Following the article, CIELA was contacted by Purplebricks’ lawyers and, after responding, CIELA says it has not heard anything since, saying it was “nothing but sabre rattling and a hollow threat”.Membership driveCIELA has also revealed why it believes the number of agents joining the organisation has not been as large as expected.“The last three months have been absolutely fascinating and have revealed that it is mostly the law-breakers who are afraid of CIELA’s formation,” says Charlie Wright.“Professionally run, law-abiding agents who have expressed their support, but not yet joined, have explained that they need to be sure the rogue element of the industry cannot be members, before they commit to membership.“Their stated reason for “wait and see” is to be satisfied that the controls are in place to prevent any criminal agents being part of the organisation.“Before their feedback, we had not fully appreciated the scale of this problem, i.e. just how many independent agents are breaking the law.“These agents who act as though they are above the law are doing the worst damage to the industry. Before there is a chance of improving its reputation, these agents must be publicly identified, to protect the public from their deliberate criminality, or at best their sheer incompetence.”purplenbricks charlie wright CIELA June 30, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Press release: Record £15.6 million underpayment identified for workers on the minimum wage

first_img All workers are entitled to be paid at least the minimum wage, so it is good to see increased focus on enforcement bearing fruit and securing more arrears for more workers. Awareness of the minimum wage is vital for workers and employers alike, and strong enforcement is critical to its success. 3. Employers who pay workers less than the minimum wage have to pay back arrears of wages to the worker at current minimum wage rates and face financial penalties of up to 200% of arrears, capped at £20,000 per worker.4. National Living and Minimum Wage rates: HMRC is committed to ensuring that workers receive the wages they are legally entitled to, irrespective of their employer’s size or business sector, and today’s figures highlight our success over the last year. If anyone thinks they are not receiving at least the minimum wage, they can contact the Acas helpline on 0300 123 1100 in confidence or submit a query online through our complaints form. April 2018 £7.83 £7.38 £5.90 £4.20 £3.70 Date 25 and over 21 to 24 18 to 20 Under 18 Apprentice Low Pay Commission Chairman Bryan Sanderson said: Record £15.6 million of underpayment identified for more than 200,000 workers Employers fined unprecedented £14 million for not meeting legal obligations More than 600 employers named in 2017/18 as part of ‘naming’ rounds Ramped up efforts by HMRC to crackdown on underpayment and boost compliancecenter_img Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) achieved record enforcement results this year, identifying £15.6million of underpayments.The number of workers identified as underpaid was double that in 2016/17 and the highest number since the National Minimum Wage came into force.In every case, the government instructs employers to repay their workers and enforces the return of the missing cash.The rise in cases follows increased efforts by HMRC to promote compliance and improve employer awareness of the minimum wage.Business Minister Kelly Tolhurst, said: £1.7m back pay identified for a record 16,000 workers as 260 employers are named and shamed for underpaying minimum wage rates Nearly 180 employers named and shamed for underpaying thousands of minimum wage workers Record 22,400 minimum wage workers to receive millions in backpay Funding for minimum wage enforcement has reached record levels, rising to £26.3 million in 2018/19 from £20 million in 2016/17.For more information about your pay, or if you think you might be being underpaid, get advice and guidance at www.gov.uk/checkyourpay. Workers can also seek advice from workplace experts Acas.Notes to editors1. The report can be found here: National Living Wage and National Minimum Wage: government evidence on compliance and enforcement, 2018.2. Details of the 2017/18 businesses named in the government’s naming scheme can be found here: Over the past year, 56 employers took advantage of a HMRC pilot scheme where employers were encouraged to come forward outside of an investigation. This resulted in nearly £250,000 in arrears being declared for just under 700 workers.The year also set a new record for penalties issued by the government, with £14 million in fines issued to employers.More than 600 employers who were found to have underpaid their workers the minimum wage were named in 2017/18. This is the largest number in any single year since the scheme began in 2014.This year, the social care, retail, commercial warehousing and gig economy sectors have been prioritised by HMRC for enforcement of the minimum wage. This is alongside employment agencies, apprentices and migrant workers. These sectors are where non-compliance with National Minimum Wage is believed to be more widespread.Penny Ciniewicz, HMRC Director General of Customer Compliance, said: We are dedicated to stopping underpayment of the minimum wage. Employers must recognise their responsibilities and pay their workers the money they are entitled to. The UK’s lowest paid workers have had the fastest wage growth in 20 years thanks to the National Living Wage and today’s figures serve as a reminder to all employers to check they are getting their workers’ pay right.last_img read more
