Apopka Fire Station #5 breaking ground this month

first_img Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 The Apopka City Council voted 5-0 at its Wednesday meeting to approve the contract for the Apopka Fire Station #5 project.  The new station is in Northwest Apopka, intersects Jason Dwelley Parkway, and will serve the residents and businesses north of Ponkan Road. That area is currently served by Fire Station #2.“This should greatly reduce response times,” Apopka Fire Department Chief Charles Carnesale said at a workshop meeting back in March.According to the Agenda Packet provided by City Staff for the July 5th City Council meeting, the City Council approved a preconstruction services contract with Miller Construction Management, Inc. in November of 2016 to provide value engineering and other cost saving services to finalize the design of the Fire Station #5 project. The City Staff completed the design and has negotiated with the Miller Construction team to perform Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) services at a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) for this project. The GMP for the Fire Station project shall not exceed $1,614,800. Any changes not requested by the City, or any pricing increases, shall be the financial responsibility of Miller Construction. Any savings realized during construction will be returned to the City.Fire Station #5 will be approximately 7,500 square feet and will include a living/sleeping area for six firefighters and a District Chief. It will have four parking bays that can hold two ambulances, a fire truck, a brush truck, a rescue squad, and a District Chief vehicle.Funding to complete the project amounting to $580,790 was approved in the Fiscal Year 2017/18 budget by the unanimous vote of Council. This amount, along with the $1,034,010 already allocated from previous budgets, will complete the funding. A 10% contingency is included in the budget for items the City will be providing.This amount, along with the $1,034,010 already allocated from previous budgets, will complete the funding. A 10% contingency will be included in the budget for items the City will be providing.The contract time is measured from the date of commencement and Miller Construction Management, Inc. shall achieve substantial completion of the entire work not later than 182 days from the time of commencement.According to Carnesale, the project will break ground in the next 10-20 days.“We have a completion date of January 2018 listed,” he said. “But Miller Construction thinks we can finish by November or December of this year.”Fire Station #5 will be approximately 7,500 square feet and will include a living/sleeping area for six firefighters and a District Chief. It will have four parking bays that can hold two ambulances, a fire truck, a brush truck, a rescue squad, and a District Chief vehicle, according to Carnesale. It is the first fire station built for the AFD in 12 years. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply About time! 1 COMMENT Gov.

Vegan food unicorns are taking over the market

The Anatomy of Fear For your vegan and vegetarian friends… and those with an eye for potential stocksFocus on BusinessFrom The HustleThere’s a new cow in town, and this one really is ready to jump over the moon.NotCo is a Bezos-backed plant-based protein company from Chile that makes vegan milk, mayonnaise, ice cream, and burgers.They’ve raised $120m so far thanks to Giuseppe, their patented AI software, which helps them analyze and develop new product recipes.Now, they’re eyeballing a $1B valuation as they expand further into the US, Canada, and Mexico.There’s a surprising number of vegan moo-nicornsAccording to Lever VC, a leading investor in the alt-protein space, the plant-based meat and dairy industries are worth a combined $22B and are growing fast.Just Inc. (plant-based eggs) is valued at $1B+.Beyond Meat (plant-based meats) has an $8.8B market cap.Oatly (oat milk) recently raised $200m at a $2B valuation and is reportedly targeting a $10B IPO.The industry is projected to grow 31% YoY, reaching $85-$140B in the next 10-15 years — and, most likely, minting several new billion-dollar companies along the way.The first-ever Chilean unicorn?There’s another interesting angle here: If NotCo does hit a $1B valuation, it’ll be Chile’s first unicorn startup — vegan or not.Despite pandemic woes, Latin America saw a record 488 VC deals in 2020, and Mexico and Uruguay minted their first billion-dollar startups.NotCo — which so far only operates in Chile, Brazil, Argentina, and the US — is projecting 4x sales growth in 2021 as they move into even greener pastures.

Megan Rapinoe: soccer star, political activist

first_imgMegan Rapinoe’s captivating autobiography, “One Life,” traces how her upbringing and lifelong joy of playing soccer led to stardom and political activism.Rapinoe has used her superstar status to advance the fight of workers and the oppressed. In 2012 she joined the handful of professional athletes who are out lesbians. In 2016 she took a knee during the national anthem protesting police brutality and systemic racism. Now Rapinoe is fighting for equal pay for women.Rapinoe is co-captain of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) and has been essential to their winning record: four Women’s World Cup titles, four Olympic gold medals and eight Concacaf (Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football) Gold Cups. In 2018 she became the fourth woman to be named Sports Illustrated’s Sportsperson of the Year. In 2019 she won the Golden Cup for best player and the Golden Boot award for best scorer at the Fédération Internationale de Football Association tournament.Rapinoe began reading about gay rights and the law in 2011. During that time her skill on the soccer field was making her a public figure. She started asking herself, why she was not out? And none of her gay teammates out? She told her lesbian soccer friend Ali Krieger, “There are young kids who are too scared to be themselves, and if we keep hiding, it doesn’t make it normal to be in a lesbian relationship.”In 2012 Rapinoe came out publicly in an interview with Elle magazine, “I feel like sports in general are still homophobic, in the sense that not a lot of people are out,” she said, “People want — they need — to see that there are people like me playing soccer for the good ol’ U.S. of A.” (tinyurl.com/zvtabe7d)On taking a knee Megan Rapinoe kneels during the U.S. national anthem before a U.S.- Netherlands match, Sept. 18, 2016, Atlanta.With the LGBTQ2S+ movement a jumping off point for her politicization, she said that in 2015, “In the wake of Ferguson, I read every piece on racial injustice that came out in the press.”After reading how white supremacists razed the Black towns of Tulsa and Rosewood, she realized that, “For Black Americans there have never been gains without backlash.” She said it became clear to her that white supremacy was the system from which all other inequalities flowed. She realized “fighting racism was also my fight,” and that “we’re not free until we’re all free.”Inspired by Colin Kaepernick, Rapinoe took a knee during the national anthem in 2016 in Chicago and again a few days later in Maryland. She recalled “the furor was instantaneous and huge. Whew, were white people mad.”She was booed and jeered by fans. Trump and conservative commentators chastised her for disrespecting the military. Her family in Redding, Calif., a conservative town, received hate mail; local bars tore down her pictures. “I realized,” she said, “there is a particular kind of baffled outrage reserved by white people for other white people they consider to be ‘betraying’ their race, and that week I felt the full force of it. People called for me to be fired from the team. My social media feed filled up with abuse.”Rapinoe explained, “When I campaigned for LGBTQ rights or pay equity, I had always been warmly received. I knew racism was different.”Rapinoe didn’t lose her big sponsorships like Nike, but she didn’t get any new sponsorships or opportunities. While recuperating from an injury, the soccer league used her injury as an excuse to not play her. She kept her contract, but she wasn’t allowed to play until a ruling was passed that made players stand for the national anthem during games.Rapinoe said she doesn’t regret kneeling but realizes that for Kaepernick, kneeling during the national anthem meant the end of his career. For her, it eventually became a rebirth. She regrets that she stopped kneeling: “That’s something that I feel like I still struggle with. I didn’t want to lose my job.”Rapinoe wanted to keep playing for the national team, which gave her a platform from which to speak: “That was a really tough decision. I mean, I think in one sense, I probably made the right decision, because I sort of battled back and got to a level where I was then undeniable. And then they had a really big problem on their hands, because I really wasn’t going anywhere.”Equal pay for womenDespite the fact that the men’s national soccer team has never won a World Cup title, and the USWNT has won four, men players make over four times what women players make in salary. A woman’s minimum in 2019 was $16,538 compared to men’s $70,250. (tinyurl.com/4n679tss)Working with members of the USWNT, Rapinoe has been a leader in fighting for equal pay. In March 2019 USWNT filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation for pay discrimination. In May 2020 a federal judge dismissed the claim, but the team plans to appeal.On March 24, National Equal Pay Day, President Joe Biden invited Rapinoe to testify for the need to close gender-based pay gaps. Rapinoe told the press, “I know there are millions of people who are marginalized by gender in the world and experience the same thing in their jobs.” And in her prepared statement, she wrote: “The women’s national team has won four World Cup championships and four Olympic gold medals on behalf of our country. Yet despite all this, we are still paid less than men — for each trophy, each win, each tie, each time we play.” If that can happen to women “with the brightest lights shining on us,” she added, it can happen to women in any industry.

Farm Bill Conference Committee Meets

first_img By Hoosier Ag Today – Sep 5, 2018 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bill Conference Committee Meets Farm Bill Conference Committee Meets Facebook Twitter The farm bill conference committee’s first public meeting Wednesday came with just ten legislative days to complete and pass a new farm bill. Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts chairs the committee, working on now his eighth farm bill as a lawmaker. In his opening statement, Roberts told the committee, “Time is of the essence. Let us work together to get this done.” The farm bill conference committee is composed of 56 members, including nine Senators and 47 Representatives. The ranking member of the House Agriculture Committee Collin Peterson told the members, “Nobody in this room is going to get everything he or she wants; this process is about compromise.”The biggest compromise is needed in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, where the House version of the bill includes work requirements. Debbie Stabenow, the top Democrat on the Senate Agriculture Committee, pointed out that the House SNAP provision would cut two million recipients from the program, adding that “these cuts do not have support in the Senate – and do not even have strong consensus in the House.”House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway has offered up what he calls a “significant compromise” on nutrition programs in the farm bill. Conaway declined to get into specifics with Politico but says last week he sent a proposal to his counterparts in the Senate offering a compromise on SNAP. He says the offer demonstrates he’s “willing to move off House positions, but it’s got to make sense.”Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleFMC Recommits to Research and InnovationNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for September 6, 2018 Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

Image via joltinitiative.org“Unidos podemos,” a Spanish phrase meaning “united we can,” is a small representation of Jolt’s mission statement, said group president Frank Valadez. The main goals of the group are to focus on issues pertaining to education, student debt, immigration and human rights and environmental rights in the Fort Worth community, said Valadez.One of Jolt’s current issues being focused on is 287(G), an active law in Fort Worth that allows state or local law enforcement agencies to engage into partnership with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to enforce deportation in the community, said Valadez.Valadez said a revote will be held sometime in June and has the possibility to overturn this program and help residents in Fort Worth feel safer, but cannot be done without the help of students engaging in the community.In addition to 287(G), Jolt has engaged in tackling other obstacles, such as teachers and pharmacists in Texas state-wide being at risk of losing their licenses if they default on their student loans, said Valdez.According to the Texas Education Agency (TEA), teachers who plan on renewing their licenses can be denied if they default on their student loans. In March 2017, a report from The Texas Tribune found that over 4,000 teachers in Texas were at risk of losing their license because of a default in their loan payments here.Jolt, a non-profit Latino civic engagement program raising awareness about immediate issues within the community.
