Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Please enter your comment! There is hope in South Apopka.Today, Hope CommUnity Center opened the doors to its new campus, HCC on Hawthorne. Over 100 guests attended the soft opening – Hope Rising. The campus, located at 800 South Hawthorne Avenue in Apopka was the old home of the Apopka Family Learning Center. The AFLC was an institution in South Apopka since the 70’s, but because of financial difficulties it closed its doors last summer.Last year, HCC was approached with an opportunity to acquire the property. The expansive 6-acre campus is located in South Apopka, a place where HCC has never had a physical presence. The property includes abundant parking and added classroom space in the 7,200 square foot building.Sister Ann KendrickHCC is a service learning community dedicated to the empowerment of Central Florida’s immigrant and working poor communities through Education, Advocacy and Spiritual Growth.The new facility will allow HCC to accommodate more children and families waiting for services. Programming includes the College and Career Access Program, summer camp for kids, immigration assistance for families, engaging families in community service, and more. In the past year, HCC has served 6,250 people, a number that is now expected to grow with the additional space.The opportunity became a reality because of a surprise $250,000 grant by Disney World last year. A grant that pleased Sister Ann Kendrick.“HCC is tremendously grateful for the vote of confidence and support from our partner and friends at Disney,” said Kendrick.  “We look forward to the mission and opportunity a second campus affords our community, and we invite others to join in support of our mission.”Nancy Gidusko was also eager to help HCC.“At Disney, we know that we are truly better together. For children to flourish, they need to experience meaningful interactions with adults in their lives,” said Gidusko, Director of Citizenship for Walt Disney World. “We understand the rewards of engaging with an organization like HCC, which helps children and families tap into their creativity, make healthy choices and fill our communities with hope.”last_img read more

France convincing winners over England despite late comeback in Paris

first_imgSunday Aug 23, 2015 France convincing winners over England despite late comeback in Paris Yoann Huget scored a brilliant try as France battered England, then shut up shop as the visitors came back into contention late in the game. Key substitutions gave England heart and direction, as they pulled the score back to 25-20, but it was too little too late.England looked good at home last weekend but in Paris they were blown off the park by a more determined, and seemingly capable, French outfit that got the better up front, took their chances, and were marshalled by the old head of Frederic Michalak.While England did launch a comeback late in the match, and at the final whistle had a chance of snatching an unlikely win, France were clearly the superior side on the day.“We gave away penalties and our discipline was shocking,” said skipper Chris Robshaw. “Whether it was rust, or nerves, it wasn’t good enough. Credit to France, they put us under pressure and made us make mistakes.“We can’t give teams like France and other quality sides head starts like we did. We’ll look long and hard at ourselves, because we let ourselves down in the first half. We played well in phases but you can’t wait for 40 minutes to do that.”Not a whole lot should be read into those final ten minutes, and France will be pleased with their performance in front of their home crowd, following last week’s loss.England coach Stuart Lancaster has some tough decisions to make soon after replacements, such Danny Cipriani, came off the bench and showed up those that started.“The bench made a difference. It upped the energy levels and we scored some good tries. I won’t gloss over what went on before that, because it was too little too late,” he said. “There are a few players who have given me food for thought, those guys who came on and gave us the energy we needed and made a difference. I need to have a sleep on this game and think about my final squad. We’re two weeks away from playing Ireland and four weeks away from Fiji in the World Cup and we’ll expect a reaction next time.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Skin charity looks lively online

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The British Skin Foundation’s new site www.britishskinfoundation.org.uk designed by Baigent Digital represents a massive step forward for this leading UK skin charity in communicating and supporting online, through cutting edge design and a highly creative refresh of their trusted brand.It’s a big visual departure for the charity, says BSF Press and Communications Officer Bevis Man. “The previous website was quite conservative and static. We want more people to get involved so we wanted something more lively. We’re aiming high with the changes we’re making, not just from a design perspective but also the content as well to make sure that when someone lands on our home page they feel inspired to discover more about us and what we do. Whilst our existing website certainly serves its purpose, the new one will hopefully be able to fully realise the potential we are looking for in supporters.”The new site provides information and support for sufferers of skin diseases and conducts research into new treatments and skin friendly products by companies such as Dyson and L’Oreal.The innovative design aims to attract new supporters and engage existing ones whilst raising the charity’s profile ahead of a busy year of fundraising events, particularly “Walk for Skin” in May. BSF have developed a site with strong calls to action – donate, events, news – to inspire users to support their important research.Baigent Digital worked to keep the identity fun and energetic without undermining the seriousness of the charity’s work, says the agency’s Creative Director, Steven Ramsay. ”We’ve taken the brand and given it a contemporary, yet scientific feel. We’ve used CSI-style fingerprint textures and close-ups of skin in an abstract way. The approach to the design of this site is a lot more creative and reflects the trend towards charities taking a stronger interest in design.”Notes to editors:Baigent Digital: Digital consultants, experts in enabling Charities to get the best from online. Baigent Digital offers consultancy to empower charities to take control of their online activities as well as resources to support them in designing, building, promoting and managing their digital communications. Baigent Digital has been working with charities for over 12 years and clients include The British Red Cross, Cancer Research UK, The WI, The Brooke, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Care International, Scripture Union and WSPA .The British Skin Foundation (BSF) The only UK charity dedicated to skin disease research. Its main aim is to raise money for research projects that will hopefully result in cures or at the very least, a better understanding of the numerous skin conditions that affect millions of lives in the UK. To date they have funded over 230 projects totalling seven million pounds looking into a variety of skin diseases, such as skin cancer, eczema, Hidradenitis Suppurativa and psoriasis.Contact:Dawn Realmuto, PR Consultant, Baigent DigitalT 01494 770 120E [email protected] Advertisement Howard Lake | 12 April 2010 | News  44 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Digital Skin charity looks lively online About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The funding is from the £500 billion COVID-19 fund announced in the Budget.£1.6 billion will go to local authorities to help them respond to other coronavirus (COVID-19) pressures across all the services they deliver, such as increasing support for the adult social care workforce and for services helping the most vulnerable, including homeless people.£1.3 billion will be used to enhance the NHS discharge process so patients who no longer need urgent treatment can return home safely and quickly.The funding will cover the follow-on care costs for adults in social care, or people who need additional support, when they are out of hospital and back in their homes, community settings, or care settings.Responding to the announcement, Rick Henderson, Chief Executive of Homeless Link, said:“People who are homeless are some of the most vulnerable in our society, and this population is facing severe danger during the COVID-19 outbreak, as they are often relying on communal night shelters, hostels with shared sanitation, or sleeping on the streets. They also have no facilities for self-isolation.“Now that the country is in a lockdown period and following this investment from government, every local authority area should now move quickly to ensure that:–         No-one is sleeping on the streets–         No-one is sleeping in a communal setting or using shared sanitation facilities–         Local services can arrange people into appropriate groupings to prevent risk–         Everyone who needs to self-isolate in line with government guidance is able to do so–         Staff have the access to testing and the Personal Protective Equipment that they need to operate safely.“Homeless Link will be supporting our 800 plus members and local areas across the country as they undertake these actions.”last_img read more

Study abroad adds Stellenbosch, South Africa to its list of destinations

first_imgFacebook Twitter printTCU is offering a new study abroad program in Stellenbosch, South Africa for Spring 2019. Stellenbosch is located in South Africa’s Western Cape Province, just outside of Cape Town.While many students have studied abroad in South Africa before, it is the third most popular study abroad destination outside of Europe, TCU study abroad has not had its own program there and instead relied on “TCU Approved” programs.The Stellenbosch program was added to TCU’s travel abroad repertoire following a significant growth of interest from students about studying overseas. The TCU student body has grown by 21 percent since the 2007-08 school year, and program coordinator for the Center of International Studies Jesica Severson said that during that same period study abroad participation has grown by 54 percent.Students who travel to Stellenbosch will study and live at Stellenbosch University, one of the oldest universities in South Africa. The university features courses in the sciences, liberal arts and business.TCU chose Stellenbosch University due to its academic offerings across a wide array of disciplines, the most specific being the sciences, which Severson said has been a huge area of need.(Image courtesy of TCU Center for International Studies.)The Center for International Studies said TCU in Stellenbosch is TCU’s cheapest semester study abroad program.In addition to it being the cheapest study abroad option, the Center for International Studies is giving away extra scholarships for students who participate in the inaugural Spring 2019 and Fall 2019 programs.Classes at Stellenbosch will be taught in English, which is important to make study abroad accessible to a wide array of majors. There are opportunities to engage in critical global issues like sustainability, democratization, social inequalities and public health. Students can also experience cultural opportunities, such as hiking, surfing and safari.“This is not your typical study abroad!” Severson said. “We’re really excited to expand our programming to a new corner of the globe and send TCU students to Stellenbosch.

The group said that the lack of a rebound in home sales this spring has reinforced their view that there was more than harsh winter weather behind the recent slide in home sales and mortgage applications. The group notes that the road to housing recovery will be longer—and much bumpier—than expected.The group believes housing demand is still reeling from last spring’s spike in mortgage rates. They commented that a 70-basis point rise in mortgage rates coupled with a 6-point 2 percent rise in prices resulted in a 17.1 percent jump in monthly principal and interest payments. Payments on an existing home, irrespective of a slight dip in home prices, rose 11.9 percent. Consumer confidence in purchasing a new home within six months fell in May to 4.9 percent, which was below the 12-month moving average of 5.7 percent.Measuring new homebuilding against employment numbers—which only recently recovered from their recessionary decline—the National Association of Realtors found that historically, there is one new home built for every 1.5 jobs added to the economy. As of the first quarter, 32 states and the District of Columbia are above that ratio, meaning job growth has far outpaced new construction over the past three years. NAR believes that a majority of states are constructing too few homes, which will hamstring supply and slow home sales.
