Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate From Orange County Government, FloridaDue to the overwhelming response of residents and with more than 20,000 applications, Orange County Government will close its COVID-19 Rental Assistance Hotline and online application effective 5 p.m. on April 1, 2020.The launch of the local program was meant to function as a stopgap measure to help Orange County residents until federal and state funding was available.Orange County Government intends to fully process all applications and vet them appropriately. The Orange County COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program was launched by Mayor Jerry L. Demings on Friday, March 20, 2020. This was a one-time benefit for one month’s rent assistance for Orange County residents only with specific qualifications.The program, which is taxpayer funded, was initially set up to help 1,500 families with a budget of $1.8 million.“We ask for residents’ patience as we process their applications and appointments,” said Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings. “We have increased our staff and our facilities to accommodate the demand. We will bring the program’s additional funding needs to our Orange County Board of County Commissioners at an upcoming Board meeting.” TAGSCOVID-19Orange County Government FloridaRental Assistance Program Previous articleTop Takeaways: Orange County Government’s News ConferenceNext articleFlorida’s consumer confidence has plummeted, repercussions depending on COVID-19 recovery Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 You have entered an incorrect email address!

I only received $600, not 1 month’s rent, which is $1200. I’m grateful for the assistance. But it’s not the “one month’s rent,” assistance mentioned in articles. I received less than $600 total from my employer in the month of March due to the coronavirus effecting my hours. I have 2 children and I’m pregnant. I typically bring in over $2000 per month. My car payment is behind because I felt something like this would happen and I need cash for gas and other expenses. My car insurance is due in 5 days. Why are some Orange County residents not receiving an amount equal to one month’s rent, so that we can allocate our funds elsewhere until federal funds arrive?
Individuals seek and receive donations online If you thought your charity can’t raise funds online, try visiting some of the Web sites of individuals who have seemingly persuaded others to making donations to help them pay off their credit card debt.There are generous people on the Internet. Some of them seem to be a little too generous in that they are giving to some causes that are, shall we say, a little less pressing than a cure for cancer or an end to starvation.A number of people have set up sites asking for donations to swell their own private coffers. Some of these online beggars say that they need help such as paying off their credit cards. And they are successful, it would seem. Karyn Bosnak at SaveKaryn.com was able to pay off her $20,000 credit card bills by November 2002 due to the online generosity of people who gave her $13,323.08.

Rich Schmidt has raised £3,000 for himself so far at sendmeadollar.com.At least savethesuburbanites.com are honest about their pitch. The site, which doesn’t look as if it has been updated since 1999, reads: “Looking for a worthwhile charity to donate to?… Then you’ve come to the wrong place!… We want your money so we can quit our jobs for a year and see the world.”Some of these begging sites are amusing, others the result of some degree of need, and others are plain greedy. Still, they do demonstrate that people will give to the most unusual causes online. Most charities should be able to use their Web sites to convey a more truly compelling need for financial support.

A 0.5% reduction in the commercial rate has been unanimously agreed by all of the city councillors, following its proposal by Cllr Diarmuid Scully.The €153,311 saving to pay for this comes from a reduction of that amount in the provision for lump sum payments to retiring members of City Council staff.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr John Gilligan had proposed an increase in the rate by 1% to fund repairs to the water supply in St Mary’s Park but withdrew his proposal when he was given an assurance by the city manager that St Mary’s Park would be dealt with as a matter of priority within the existing budget.Cllr Joe Leddin, who proposed a reduction of 1% in the rate, failed to identify any savings and did not get a seconder to his motion.

During the course of hearing of his regular bail plea, the Bench of Justice Rohit Arya noted that the primary allegation against him was that he indulged in highly objectionable unethical activity “unbecoming of an advocate while causing embarrassment to a lady judge” through WhatsApp and on social media portals. Significantly, the Court remarked, “It appears expedient to direct for his mental checkup through a qualified Doctor or a psychiatrist and submit report before this Court.” “Additional Advocate General present in the Court is directed to ensure the compliance of aforesaid direction through Superintendent of Police and other authority, if required”, added the Court. The matter in brief It may be noted that the bail applicant is a practicing advocate at District Court Ratlam (M.P.) and allegation against him is that on the occasion of Lady Judge’s birthday, during midnight, he sent an indecent comment on her official Government E-mail Id. Before the Court, it was also submitted that he had been harassing the lady judge in her courtroom, and on various occasions, he tried to establish contact with her by initiating useless and intimate conversation. As reported in the media, advocate Vijay Singh Yadav took a print of a cover photo from her Facebook ID and created a forged card by editing his photo, E-mail ID, address, Mob. Number etc. Further, on the forged card, he wrote a quotation in filthy language and sent that forged card to her courtroom via speed post. Subsequently, the lady judge lodged a complaint before the Station House officer, Station Road, Ratlam, and thereafter, a First Information Report for the offence under section 420, 464 468, 469 of the Indian Panel Code, 1860 and under section 67 and 41 of the Information Technology Act, 2000 was registered against Advocate Vijay Singh Yadav. The Lady Judge also made a complaint to the President, Madhya Pradesh Nyayadish Sangh in connection with the alleged activities of the Advocate.On February 13, four days after the arrest, a lower court had rejected the Advocate’s bail plea, thereafter, his family had approached the Indore bench of the Madhya Pradesh High Court for bail.

Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Equal e-learning for the disabledOn 1 Feb 2003 in Personnel Today NETg is claiming to be the first company to enhance its complete IT anddesktop e-learning courses to ensure that workers with disabilities have equallearning and development opportunities. The Thomson Learning Company recently hosted a roundtable event at whichrepresentatives from the disability, training and learning sectors unanimouslyagreed that many UK companies are unaware how to address the issue ofaccessibility when implementing learning programmes for the disabled. “Many organisations believe there are huge cost and time implicationsinvolved in introducing accessible learning solutions – something which doesn’thave to be the case,” says Richard Orme, head of technology in learningand employment at the Royal National Institute of the Blind. “Unfortunately, this fear means that accessibility is quickly thrownout of the window. The result? The wrong learning solutions are in place forthe wrong people, which not only ends in disabled workers being at adisadvantage, but all workers.” Organisations don’t have to buy separate NETg courses for disabled usersbecause the accessibility functionality is built into every course and can besimply switched on. NETg worked with TecAccess, a technology companyspecialising in accessibility for the disabled, and the functionality ispresent on a range of its IT and desktop programmes ranging from MicrosoftOffice applications to C++ programming courses. “Many UK companies are neglecting the training requirements of theirdisabled staff. This is leading to many workers not reaching their fullpotential,” says Jon Buttriss, operations and services director at NETg. “As we have shown with our courses, UK plcs shouldn’t be ignoring theneeds of disabled workers, but neither should they be making a special case forit. All learners should be able to use the same course and enjoy the sameresults regardless of any disability.” NETg has partnered with Safari Books Online to provide an electronic referencelibrary to supplement its portfolio of courses. www.netg.com Related posts:No related photos.

Saint Mary’s students strive for academic success, but every class has students whose academic devotion puts them at the top of their class. On March 25, the College released the names of the three young women who will be the class of 2019’s valedictorians.Though all three students wanted to excel academically, none of them set out to receive this honor. Communicative science and disorders (CSD) major Elizabeth Priester was simply looking for individual success in each of her classes.“I just wanted to be really successful in all of the classes I was in. It just kind of led to being valedictorian,” Priester said.A similar sentiment was reiterated by fellow CSD major and valedictorian Natalie Dock.“I definitely didn’t think that I would be valedictorian coming into Saint Mary’s — I was just looking to get the most out of my experience,” she said.Monica McGrath, the third valedictorian, also said she did not seek the title of valedictorian but instead had more personal motivators.“[I am] always looking for self-improvement,” she said.In the summer between their junior and senior year, the students were told there was a possibility they would be named valedictorians of their class.Dock said she tried to make sure this possibility did not change the way she went about her day-to-day life.“I tried not to let it affect me, because I didn’t want to be motivated by that,” Dock said. “I wanted to do the best that I could. … I didn’t want that to be on my mind.”Although honored to receive the title, Dock tried not to place much value on the award. Though she considers it an accomplishment, she said she wanted to evaluate it against some of the other things she has done in her life both academically and personally.“I think in terms of a title it is a great accomplishment,” Dock said. “I guess I try not to be too proud of titles and those big things but also the little things in my life, but this is definitely one of my greatest accomplishments.”All three women recognized they did not get to the top of their class without help. McGrath said she wanted to share her pride with the people who surround her life.“I am really proud for my friends and family who supported me,” McGrath said. “I am almost more proud for them than for me. My parents and my friends were always pushing me helping me when I was struggling just being there when I was stressed or just helping me.”All three valedictorians said being at Saint Mary’s was crucial to their success, and it means something different to each of them. Priester appreciated that the College allows for all students to express themselves and their talents, and said the school offers them a place to show what they have to offer.“One thing that I really cherished about my Saint Mary’s education is Saint Mary’s is a place that truly recognizes all the gifts and talents that we bring to the world, and it’s a place of community,” Priester said. “It sets up a network of belonging where students feel recognized as both who they are and who they plan to become. I just love this environment and how they allow us to explore and dream and discover our passions.”Though all of the students said that they focused on academics throughout their career, McGrath said the College also helped them to grow as individuals and people.“I feel like there was a very good balance here,” she said. “Saint Mary’s helped me grow academically and I definitely feel very prepared for any challenges that I am going to face. I feel educated as a whole. That is something that Saint Mary’s always said on the tours — ‘We don’t just educate academically but as a whole person.’ I have grown to be a better version of myself than who I was when I came here.”When describing themselves, none of the valedictorians used the words intelligent or smart — they instead focused on traits that helped them get to where they are. They spoke about patience, focus and drive.“I’m pretty positive, I like to reflect on things that I am grateful for … I’m pretty patient,” McGrath said.Dock said her grades have always been a primary focus.“I have always considered myself a very detailed-orientated person. I have always been fairly focused on my grades — maybe that is just in my nature, I always wanted to strive to do my best,” Dock said.Priester said her academic career has taught her important life skills. McGrath, Dock and Priester will deliver a joint address to their class during commencement on May 18.“[The road to becoming valedictorian] definitely has given me a good work ethic and a drive for success,” Priester said.Tags: 2019 commencement address, Saint Mary’s College, smc valedictorian, valedictorians
