Please enter your name here Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your comment! Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Walt Disney Company and SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment presented their proposed reopening plans Wednesday to the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force, the first in step in receiving the necessary approvals for the theme parks to reopen.If approved by Gov. Ron DeSantis, Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom would reopen July 11, and its Epcot and Hollywood Studios on July 15.SeaWorld has proposed reopening its three Orlando parks, including Discovery Cove and Aquatica, on June 11.Universal Orlando presented its plan to reopen last week, with an employee only opening Monday, entry for invited guests Wednesday and a full opening to the public June 5. That plan has been approved by the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force and awaits the governor’s endorsement.Under its plan, Universal Orlando guests will be required to wear masks, with disposable masks provided for those who do not bring their own. Temperature checks will be required before entry, and guests with a temperature higher than 100.4 degrees will be taken to a cooling area and retested or sent home.Legoland Florida is the only Florida theme park that has received the green light from DeSantis to reopen.Legoland, in Winter Haven between Orlando and Lakeland, will open Monday after receiving approval from the governor’s office. That came after the governor did not approve an initial plan.Legoland will require masks for all employees and will offer masks for all guests, with more than 200 sanitization stations set up at the park. There will be no character greetings, and park capacity will be capped at 50 percent – no more than about 6,000 guests daily.Disney Senior Vice President of Operations and COO Jim MacPhee told the task force the parks plan highly restricted “soft openings” before July 11 and would open with limited capacity. He did not say what restrictions it would impose or the number of guests allowed in the parks at one time.Disney later elaborated in a statement that capacity will be managed through a system that requires advance reservations for park entry of up to 14 days.“We are developing a series of ‘know-before-you-go’ communication vehicles,” MacPhee said. “Our objective is to reinforce our health and safety messages to guests before they arrive on our property so they are aware and prepared for the new environment.”Among measures Disney World will initiate within its parks are social distancing squads, which have proven popular at its Disney Springs entertainment complex, which opened last week.The squad is “a dedicated team of highly energetic and informative cast members who are committed to engaging and inspiring our guests to follow the appropriate guidelines,” MacPhee said.SeaWorld CEO Marc Swanson told the task force its parks are planning an employee appreciation event June 10 to test some of its safety protocols before opening to the public the next day.Disney and SeaWorld will require guests and employees to wear face coverings, and social distancing will be enforced throughout their properties.Both plans call for guests and employees to also undergo temperature checks before entering the parks.Fireworks shows, character meet-and-greets and parades at Disney World will be suspended, MacPhee said.Disney also announced Wednesday its Disney Vacation Club resorts in Vero Beach will reopen to members and guests June 15.Disney Vacation Club resorts at Walt Disney World, along with Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, will reopen slowly June 22.

Almost 1.7M mail-in ballots for Florida’s primary have been cast

first_img August 12, 2020 at 10:33 pm You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here We are waiting for Election Day. We don’t like the mail- in voting, at all. My mind is already made up on who I will vote for, that is accept for one, or two of the judge seats, and that is a hard one for me to decide. I will continue to research all I can about them. I don’t know those people, and you can’t base everything on what they say, or what their opponents say, and what they look like. I’ll try my best to sort them out. There was one candidate that I met and talked with, in the past, years ago, outside the VFW, and I am glad I had a talk with him, because i learned what a fowl, nasty, potty- mouthed person he was, and all I could think of, was that, if he talks like this in front of me, and is running for a political position to judge people, no way in he*l, was I going to vote for him, to be a judge!!! The Anatomy of Fear I am okay with Joe Biden picking Kamala Harris. I would have rather he picked Elizabeth Warren, though. I liked her better. He picked who he thought would help him get elected. I think Harris is very capable of handling the job, especially in the event that something would happen to Biden, as she knows the law, and is smart. I hope she is thick- skinned enough to take the constant crap dished out about her, and her race, and you-name-it. It is more exciting now, for me, that he finally made his pick. I’m looking forward to the Nov. election, with more “go get em”!

State and local officials closely are monitoring if systems can handle an anticipated influx of mail-in votes, including Florida’s expansive early voting rules.Florida law allows counties to open early voting 10 days before an election, ending three days before Election Day. Elections supervisors can offer early voting beginning 15 days before and ending two days before the election. Many are doing so.According to DOE, 226,017 state residents had voted early by Tuesday afternoon, including 122,734 Republicans, 89,474 Democrats and 13,069 independents.Voting registration for the primaries closed July 20, with 13.891 million Floridians enrolled, including 5.168 million registered Democrats, 4.927 million registered Republicans and 3.622 million independents in the state.With seven weeks until mail ballots go out for the Nov. 3 election, those figures fall far short of former Tallahassee Mayor and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s pledge to re-engage 1 million voters and draw 200,000 new Democrats to the party.Democrats’ 240,423 lead in registered voters is 5,000 voters less than the advantage they enjoyed over the GOP during the same point in 2018.Both parties have added about a half-million voters to their rolls since the summer of 2016 and between 90,000 to 100,000 new voters over the past year.“We won the voter registration war,” Republican Party of Florida Chairman Sen. Joe Gruters, R-Sarasota, said last week.The voting bloc making the greatest gains is the nonaffiliated cadre, with 700,000 registering since 2016 and 3.622 million now registered without a party affiliation.Meanwhile, an estimated 4 million eligible Floridians remain unregistered to vote. After next week’s primary, they will have until Oct. 5 to sign up for the Nov. 3 election.DOE anticipates a greater percentage than usual will do so, noting 77,000 new voters registered in June.

Scotland snatch last gasp win over Samoa

first_imgWednesday Dec 1, 2010 Scotland snatch last gasp win over Samoa Scotland came from behind to take a half time lead and eventually sneak the win as a late Ruaridh Jackson penalty kick helped the home side beat Samoa 19-16 in Aberdeen on Saturday. Its Scotlands fifth win in their last six Tests this year.Samoa scored a lovely converted try through their ever impressive scrumhalf Khan Fotualii after a neat chip ahead from George Pisi. Nikki Walker then crossed for a rare Scottish try that came from a neatly worked set piece move.Dan Parks kept the scoreboard ticking and at 16-13 up after a dropgoal and a few penalties, it took the boot of Paul Williams to keep Samoa in the game and get things level.Replacement flyhalf Jackson came on for his second ever Test with twenty minutes left and kept his nerve to slot the deciding penalty with time up in front of his home ground.“I’ve supported Aberdeen since I was a kiddie and loved going to Pittodrie to support them. In those days I imagined that one day I might get the chance to get out on to that pitch and score an important goal,” Jackson said.“I was pretty nervous when I prepared to take the penalty. I just lined it up as usual – connected well, and thankfully it sailed between the posts.“OK, it turned out it wasn’t for Aberdeen – but you can’t get better than claiming the winner for your country. I hope I have also brought back the winning feeling and a bit of sporting joy to the city and that the football lads can take some inspiration and start getting some good results again.“After the final whistle sounded I ran across to my girlfriend Kirsty and her folks – then my mum and dad came down to the side of the pitch and she gave me a huge hug.“It was all just magical,” he beamed.

All Blacks through to another World Cup Final after tense battle with the Springboks

first_imgSunday Oct 25, 2015 All Blacks through to another World Cup Final after tense battle with the Springboks The defending champions are through to their fourth Rugby World Cup final after holding off South Africa in another epic battle between the two sides. New Zealand scored two tries to win 20-18, despite the Boks pushing them all the way at a rainswept Twickenham stadium.The Springboks persisted with the maul, kick chase game, but came up short in the creativity deparment when they needed a little more attacking threat against an organised All Blacks outfit.While young Handre Pollard kicked 5 from 5 kicks, with Pat Lambie slotting one after coming on, the defending champions scored two tries and never had their tryline threatened. New Zealand’s nous allowed them to hold off the powerful Springboks, who tested the champs for the first time in this year’s tournament.“We did it the hard way today. It was always going to be that way but we’ve got a crack at it next week,” said captain Richie McCaw. “We’ve been saying they would bring everything. There were no surprises and we had to dig deep to get the result.”A lot of the Bok troubles came from poor kicking and lost lineouts, giving them a poor platform.Coach Heyneke Meyer said they simply weren’t good enough on the day. “We believed we were good enough to beat them but we just weren’t. We wanted to make our country proud and we didn’t.”New Zealand now have a chance of becoming the first country to ever retain the title.Highlights below, plus post match interviews and pre-match anthems and HakaADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks , Rugby World Cup , Springboks Related Articles 40 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?

The structure with a total surface of 32.500 m2 combines social housing, rental property, a residence for disabled people, offices and retail. The block is composed of five sections, each one designed by a different architect, following the MVRDV masterplan: Pierre Gautier, Manuelle Gautrand, ECDM and Erik van Egeraat. Landscape architects West 8 designed the public plaza. MVRDV designed the head section which advertises over the full façade the European integration by quoting the EU constitution. ‘Le Monolithe’ has been realized by ING Real Estate Development and Atemi.Save this picture!© MVRDVIn 2004, ING Real Estate Developers had invited a group of international architects to design the masterplan, for which MVRDV was chosen as winner. Based on this masterplan, each architect was asked to design a section which together form ‘Le Monolithe’. The urban superblock is a mixed-use development comprising a mix of social and rental housing, offices and underground parking. The block is characterised by a large interior court with a raised public space overlooking the city, the new marina and a park, in this way resembling the French classical ‘Grand Gallérie’. The block is divided into five sections, each one designed by a different architect in order to achieve diversity and architectural variety. MVRDV is responsible for the head section in the south at the waterfront. Each part is unique in material, composition and architectural expression. The project forms part of the urban regeneration project ‘Lyon Confluence’, a 150 hectare site located at the southern tip of Lyon’s Presqu’île, where the rivers Rhône and Saône merge.Save this picture!© MVRDVThe interiors of MVRDV’s south facing building are protected from the sun by means of aluminium shutters as a reference to traditional local architecture. Apartments inside Le Monolithe offer a great diversity in order to attract different groups of inhabitants making the block a reflection of Lyon’s population. Offices are divided into separate units of min. 500 m² which are accessed by three vertical circulation cores, providing individual access. Each unit allows for a flexible fit out, depending on the tenants’ needs and requirements. All spaces are naturally lit and ventilated.Save this picture!© MVRDVIn June 2005, when France and The Netherlands voted against the European Constitution, MVRDV decided to redesign the façade and integrate a reminder of the values, ideals and needs of the European Union. When all shutters are closed, the first article of the European Constitution can be read: “The Union is founded on the values of respect for human dignity, liberty, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities. These values are common to the Member States in a society in which pluralism, non-discrimination, tolerance, justice, solidarity and equality between women and men prevail.” Save this picture!© MVRDVIt aims to advocate a possible ‘Yes’ for Europe in days of protectionism, accompanying the collective EU spirit of the gathered architects. The adjacent sections were designed by French and Dutch architects Pierre Gautier, Manuelle Gautrand, ECDM and Erik van Egeraat. Dutch landscape architects West 8 designed the public space.Save this picture!DiagramProject gallerySee allShow lessMinimal Complexity / Vlad TenuArticlesHolcim Awards Juries Showcase Leading Experts on SustainabilityArticlesProject locationAddress:Lyon, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

El Bruc Residential, is located just outside the old town centre of El Bruc. It is a new public building for single-family housing development, with a social and cultural use, which consists in a multi-use room for the neighbors, a little bar and a toilet. The architects were asked to design a neighborhood meeting point, a place for popular parties and celebrations, and other activities such as conferences and courses. It is planned for a capacity of 20-30 people simultaneously and located next to a public playground and a small sports court for the community. The program areas are distributed in just one floor. A covered entrance porch, communicates directly with the multipurpose room. At the opposite end of the entrance, there are other complementary services (small bar, toilet, storage and cleaning room).

It is a very honest and plain building, a wysiwyg building. Due to the small size of the building, it provides an image of unity and compactness of the material. The façade is the structure, the structure defines the material and the security grille provides an integral texture to the façade. The geometry clearly defines people and light entrance volumes. The result is an integral, durable and engaging building.
