Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 From the Federal Emergency Management AgencyThose who intentionally claim false losses with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are taking money away from those who truly need assistance and stand in danger of being charged with a felony. FEMA must ensure that taxpayer dollars go only to people who incurred legitimate losses and the agency takes disbursement of necessary funds to the proper parties very seriously.Those who are caught trying to make fraudulent claims can be charged with a felony and, if convicted, face a maximum 30-year prison term and up to $250,000 in fines.If you know of someone who is filing false damage claims with FEMA, you should report this or other instances of fraud, waste or abuse:  Contact the Department of Homeland Security Office of the Inspector General (OIG) at 800-323-8603, TTY 844-889-4357. A fraud complaint may also be completed online at the OIG’s website (www.oig.dhs.gov), faxed to 202-254-4297 or mailed to: DHS Office of Inspector General: Mail Stop 0305; Department of Homeland Security; 245 Murray Drive SW; Washington DC 20528-0305.  Survivors can also call FEMA’s Office of the Chief Security Officer (OCSO) Tip line at 866-223-0814 or email to [email protected] Calls may be answered by a recorded message. The caller will be asked a few questions.The information will be entered into the data system and assigned to a field investigator. If the caller left a name and phone number, it will be the investigator who will call back, not the person who took the call. An inspector has 90 days to verify the complaint. Special agents from the Office of Inspector General use a number of methods to detect fraud. An automated system cross-checks information with other agencies and insurance companies to weed out duplicate applications. Field inspections are conducted to verify losses and damages for every person who applies to FEMA for individual assistance. Potential cases of fraud or misuse are referred for prosecution as federal offenses. Conducting audits and investigating possible fraudulent activities is standard procedure in all federal disaster operations. The U.S. Department of Justice prosecutes cases that result in criminal charges. Any applicant who has made a mistake when reporting damage or has misrepresented losses has the opportunity to correct or cancel their claim.Individuals need to call the FEMA Helpline (800-621-3362) for voice or 711 VRS, or 800-662-7585 for TTY to withdraw or correct an application and prevent prosecution.

The Reds beat the Bulls in classic match at Suncorp

Posted On Jun 18 2021 by

first_imgMonday Apr 19, 2010 The Reds beat the Bulls in classic match at Suncorp The Queensland Reds leaped into the top four of the Super 14 on Saturday when they beat the Bulls 19-12 in a highly entertaining match in front of 26,669 fans at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.It was only the second defeat of the Bulls campaign but the defending champions were their own worst enemy at times, making uncharacteristic errors as they were unable to find an answer for the persistent running game of an inspired Reds side.The Bulls are still on track for that all important home semi final though, ending round ten in joint first position with the Crusaders, with the Canterbury men in pole position due to a superior points difference.The Reds, coached by axed Stade Francais coach Ewen McKenzie, are now serious title contenders with just four weeks left in the tournament.“All credit to the players,” said McKenzie. “We had a very specific game plan and they went out and tried their best to make it happen. They did a really good job and showed plenty of character and application.“We didn’t want to give them the ball, so we had to find ways to be creative. It’s hard to play 80 minutes without giving them the ball, but that was our intention and we did pretty well.“We didn’t give them the line-outs that they wanted to play and set up their game with. For long periods of time we didn’t give them the chance to play the structured game that they like to play and then they got tired from making a lot of tackles.”Bulls coach Frans Ludeke was unable to fault his teams commitment and instead praised the quality of the Reds team, who scored tries through Scott Higginbotham and Rod Davies.“The Reds played fantastically. They took us almost out of the game in terms of possession. It’s a very expansive style, but their retention was spot on. Definitely one of the best continuity performances I’ve seen in a long time and they deserved to win.”It was a well deserved match for the Reds and their loyal fans, who were over the moon at the final whistle. Phil Kearns summed up the feeling in the ground when he said “There’s blokes in private boxes up here patting each other on the butts!”Great match for the neutral, with some brilliant tries and excellent defense from both sides, particularly the Reds in the closing stages. Enjoy the extended highlights.

Cooks River House establishes a secluded family home within a lush natural landscape in Sydney’s inner west. A single-storey bungalow with an unsympathetic later addition previously occupied this sloping site, facing south along the Cooks River. The overgrown site had a wild, natural feel which our clients saw as an adventure-filled place to raise their young family.Save this picture!© Tom FergusonKey intentions were to improve the connection to the natural beauty of the site – creating a house that feels far removed from the city, responding to views, topography, and light. The later additions to the house were removed to reveal the original form, offering an opportunity to create a series of light-filled, open living spaces that better connected to the surrounding garden.  Save this picture!© Tom FergusonSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Tom FergusonThe house overlooks the Cooks River and its surrounding parkland – a former industrial artery in recent decades revived as a place of recreation. The changing nature of this urban landscape is mirrored in the approach to this site – regenerating the garden with native plants, creating a low maintenance garden with minimal water needs, and paring back plant cover to reveal the natural rocky escarpments. Save this picture!© Tom FergusonEntering the site, the meandering path descends into the garden, following the line of the escarpment. The rocky landscape is negotiated by a series of insertions – stairs, deck, retaining wall, large-format pavers – creating a sequence of terraced outdoor spaces for play and entertaining. Save this picture!© Tom FergusonThe new timber-clad first-floor volume is a contemporary acknowledgment of the scale and form of the surrounding suburban context, sitting above the lightweight materiality of glass and steel below. This gesture of opening the ground floor to the surrounding garden serves to invite the landscape into and through the home itself, whilst the deep overhang protects the north-facing kitchen and dining areas from the hot summer sun. The sensitive insertion of a first-floor pod into the existing Federation roof volume carefully retains its character, creating views from the main bedroom out to the tree canopy and river beyond. Embracing the landscape, the garden is ever-present in the lived experience of this house. Save this picture!© Tom FergusonSet back above the foreshore reserve and secluded by lush foliage, the durable, specially treated timber facade of the house will weather and grey naturally over time in affinity with the surrounding landscape.  Spotted Gum flooring and joinery knit together old and new parts of the house, giving the interior palette a similar natural quality. Looking out over the garden, first floor rooms predominantly face north, with openings sheltered by external venetian blinds allowing fine control of light and breezes, housed within deep reveals of the facade. Save this picture!© Tom FergusonSustainable strategies such as passive heating and shading, high levels of insulation, stormwater collection and rainwater recycling all reduce the environmental impact of this riverfront home.Save this picture!© Tom FergusonProject gallerySee allShow lessJump Hub / Jakub Cigler Architekti + Unlimited Jakub Cigler ArchitektiSelected ProjectsIC House / Ad-hoc mslSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officestudioplusthreeOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookHurlstone ParkAustraliaPublished on February 13, 2020Cite: “Cooks River House / studioplusthree” 12 Feb 2020.

The person with the BB gun turned out to be a 12-year-old boy. Credit Pasadena Police DeptA potential tragedy was averted Tuesday when police responded to a report of a man brandishing a gun in a Pasadena neighborhood, but ultimately found a 12-year-old boy who had been playing with a realistic-looking BB gun, authorities said.The incident unfolded Tuesday afternoon in the area of Sunset Avenue and Pepper Street, Pasadena Police Department Lt. William Grisafe said.“PPD received a call of a male seen with a handgun in the area,” he said. “Officers responded to the area as a witness provided them updates that the man was holding the gun in his hand and his waistband.”Upon arriving, the officers saw someone emerge from behind an apartment building, according to the lieutenant.The person, determined to be a 12-year-old boy, admitted he had been handling a BB gun and directed them to the place where he had dropped it, he said.Map of locations where guns have been seized this year in Pasadena, provided by the Pasadena Police Department“The recovered gun is not distinguishable as either an authentic firearm or a BB gun,” Grisafe said. “This could have had tragic results had the minor not discarded the gun and instead decided to retain possession of it.”Pasadena police have seized more than 200 firearms this year, he said.“This trend of people carrying guns is likely a result of an increase in violence and sadly, the outcome is not likely to end well,” said Grisafe.The department released a map indicating the areas where guns have been found this year. In some cases, multiple guns were found at the same location.One bust resulted in the seizure of more than 40 guns, Grisafe said. More than 20 additional weapons were seized during investigations outside of the city limits.last_img read more

A comparison of Antarctic euphausiids sampled by net and from geothermally heated waters: insights into sampling bias

Posted On May 9 2021 by

first_imgThe Antarctic euphausiids Euphausia superba and E. crystallorophias were sampled using an 8 m2 rectangular midwater trawl inside the caldera of Deception Island. Specimens of the same species were collected on the same day from the strandline and sublittoral fringe within the caldera at a bay where these euphausiids had been incapacitated by high temperature geothermally heated waters. Differences between length frequency distributions of samples obtained by both methods were investigated once net-caught specimens had been subject to the simulated effects of geothermally heated waters. Differences between maturity stage/sex ratios for E. superba samples were also assessed. No significant differences between sizes of net-caught or beach-sampled E. crystallorophias were detected, but significant differences were found between both the sizes and sex/maturity stages for E. superba samples. Possible explanations for these differences are discussed.last_img read more


Veery (Catharus Fuscescens) wintering locations, migratory connectivity, and a revision of its winter range using geolocator technology

Posted On May 9 2021 by

first_imgWe used light-level archival geolocators to track five Veeries (Catharus fuscescens) for one annual cycle as they migrated from Delaware to South America and back. Southward migration commenced in late August and September 2009. Veeries arrived at wintering sites from 2 November to 2 December 2009. All birds initially wintered in the Amazon basin south of the Amazon River in Mato Grosso, Para, and Amazonas states, Brazil. All birds showed intratropical migration to a second winter site between 7 January and 7 March 2010. These second winter sites were in the interior, northern, and southern periphery of the Amazon basin and the Orinoco River headwaters, Venezuela. Northward migration commenced in mid-April 2010, and the Veeries returned to Delaware between 29 April and 20 May 2010. Despite variation in migratory patterns, several stopover regions were visited by multiple individuals: the coasts of the Carolinas, the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba and Jamaica, the north coast of Colombia and Venezuela, and southern Venezuela. Our spatial and temporal data necessitates that the Veery winter range include the entire Amazon basin and the headwaters of the Orinoco River, as well as two disjunct regions in Merida state, Venezuela, and Sao Paulo state, Brazil. We hypothesize that Veeries initially settled in lowland forest and that intratropical migration was prompted by the ecological factors associated with the seasonal flood pulse of Amazonian rivers. If so, the Veery may be threatened by the recent, unprecedented proposed alteration of Amazonian lowland forests.last_img read more
