Pam Little found reason to ‘Relay’

first_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Skip Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Latest Stories By The Penny Hoarder Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By Jaine Treadwell Published 10:48 pm Thursday, April 30, 2009 Book Nook to reopen Email the author “Looking back there are so many special moments but the one that really stands out in my mind is the year after my dad died in January,” she said. “I wanted to work especially hard because everything that I did, I did in memory of him. And, too, the SARHA Relay team dedicated their efforts to him. It was just a very special and moving moment for me.”Little said the Survivors Walk and the Luminary Walk are highlights of every Relay for Life event.“The Survivors Walk is what our fundraising efforts are all about,” she said. “The dollars that we raise help save lives and, when those who have claimed victories over the disease take a lap around the track, we see that what we are doing does make a difference. To me, the Survivors Walk is why we keep doing what we do and why people continue to give.“The Luminary Walk is a time to remember those who lost their battles with the disease and honor their memories. The Luminary Walk is a very reverent and emotional time. And, while it’s a time to remember loved ones and friends, it’s also a reminder that our work will not be done until we find a cure for this terrible disease that affects all of us in some way.” The Twilighter lost her battle with cancer, but the fight she waged inspired others to join the fight in hopes that more lives could be saved.“I then got involved with the SARHA team where my husband, John, is chief executive officer, and I’ve been involved ever since,” Little said. “Six years ago, I lost my dad to lung cancer so the fight against cancer became very personal to me. Since then, John’s mother was lost to leukemia so the fight against cancer is even more personal to us.”Little’s grandmother also lost her life to cancer so cancer has touched her family many times.

The risk indicator dashboard was updated… read more Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson You Might Like By Jaine Treadwell Email the author Skip The Alabama State Council on the Arts has awarded 137 grants totaling $2,290,710 to 113 grantees across the state. Organizations providing public programs in arts education, folk arts, community arts, literary arts, dance, music, theatre, and visual art forms received support through this competitive process.Locally, the Pioneer Museum of Alabama and the Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center were among the grantees that were announced at the ASCA September meeting.The Pioneer Museum of Alabama received $4,500 for its annual, two-day Pioneer Days event. The Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center received $2,400 for the center’s “Let’s Rock with Artist Enid Probst” workshop. Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kitscenter_img “We will have a variety of demonstrators, craftsmen and also re-enactors of the War of 1812,” Tatom said. “Food will be served from an authentic chuck wagon and the Montgomery Dulcimers will perform. Of course, the museum will be open throughout the day. It will be two days for people of all ages to step back in time and learn more about Alabama pioneer life.”Tatom express appreciation to Elliot Knight, ASCA executive director, and the council for its continuing support of the arts in Alabama.Brenda Campbell, Johnson Center for the Arts director, said the Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center (JCA) has been greatly affected by governmental closings and the resulting loss of revenue. Walk-in traffic has been slow since the re-opening of entertainment centers, she said.“We greatly appreciate ASCA’s grant support that will help make the ‘Let’s Rock with Artist Enid Probst’ workshop possible,” Campbell said. Print Article Book Nook to reopen Sponsored Content The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… By The Penny Hoarder Published 9:16 pm Friday, September 11, 2020 “The workshop will accommodate 190 people, teachers and third graders, from the schools in Pike and Crenshaw counties. The two-day workshop will facilitate the integration of art into the elementary science curriculum through the STEM initiative, encourage people to reconnect with the Center and increase visibility of The Studio space.  The workshop will also develop a sense of community among the counties and will offer training for university students.”Campbell said the workshop is made possible by the ASCA grant award.“We are very appreciative of ASCA’s support,” Campbell said. “Without that support, we would not have been able to provide this outstanding learning opportunity for these third-grade students that will be facilitated by Enid Probst, an outstanding teacher and artist.”Funding for the Council on the Arts is provided by the Alabama State Legislature and the National Endowment of the Arts, a federal agency.Support for arts programming is critical for a vibrant creative community, which results in a thriving arts economy, a workforce ready for innovation, and a high quality of life for all residents. However, the needs of the arts sector are greater than the Council has the ability to fund, with the requested amount in this grant cycle totaling $4.3 million. Jim Harrison, council chair, said ASCA is pleased to support educational groups, community organizations and arts institutions with these approved grants. Funds awarded through the Council’s granting process provide a better education for students, nourishing imagination and preparing them for the workforce of tomorrow. “These important grants also strengthen cultural expression and attract new industry to our colorful and vibrant state.”     Barbara Tatom, director of the Pioneer Museum of Alabama, said, without the support of the ASCA grant, it is doubtful that the museum would have been able to host Pioneer Days in October.“The museum was closed for 10 weeks due to COVID-19 and that hit us hard financially,” Tatom said. “It also deprived a lot of school children of field trip opportunities to learn, first hand, more about pioneer life. The ASCA grant gives us the assurance of being able to host Pioneer Days in early October.”Tatom said most of the demonstrations and events are outdoors and social distancing will occur almost naturally.

A reconstruction of the air-sea interaction associated with the Weddell Polynya

first_imgA recent major climatic event was the occurrence of approximately 350 000 square kilometers of open water in the normally ice covered Weddell Sea near Antarctica during the winters of 1974-76. Within this polynya there was vigorous air-sea interaction resulting in the densification of the surface waters, a convective overturning of the water column, and the formation of large amounts of Antarctic Bottom Water. In order to further our understanding of this important event, the NCEP-NCAR reanalysis dataset is used to reconstruct the air-sea interaction associated with this polynya. The reconstruction shows that the polynya had a profound impact on the surface meteorology of the region. Surface air temperatures over the polynya were on the order of 20degreesC warmer than climatology. Total cloud cover over the polynya was 50% higher than climatology. The magnitude of the monthly mean sensible and latent heat fluxes during the winter months were on the order of 150 and 50 W m(-2), respectively, while precipitation was on the order of 1 mm day(-1). Furthermore, the reconstructed air-sea fluxes are highly variable in time with instantaneous values 5-10 times larger than monthly mean values. A cross-correlation analysis suggests that much of this variability can be attributed to the passage of transient synoptic-scale weather systems. The reconstructed buoyancy flux within the polynya during winter was on average negative, indicating that the surface waters were becoming denser thereby driving oceanic convection and Antarctic Bottom Water formation. Nevertheless there were instances when the buoyancy flux was positive. During these events, the freshwater flux due to precipitation was larger than the effect of cooling, thus resulting in a reduction in the density of the surface waters of the polynya. The integrated buoyancy flux over the winter period exceeds a previous estimate by 30%-40%, suggesting that the oceanic convection that took place as a result of the existence of the polynya may have been significantly more vigorous than previously thought.last_img read more

TRUMP NEEDS MORE VOTES, LESS APPLAUSE

first_imgTRUMP NEEDS MORE VOTES, LESS APPLAUSE                                                                    Making Sense by Michael ReaganI’ve finally figured out what Donald Trump’s main problem is.No jokes, please.It’s because at his core he’s an entertainer who’s looking for applause, not a politician who’s looking for votes.Applause makes you feel good on stage at the Improv or at the end of a Broadway play. But it doesn’t get you elected.If Trump really wants to save what’s left of Western Civilization from four years of President Hillary Clinton, he’s got to learn how to get his message out to more voters.When he gives his big policy speeches, he does fine.The addresses he delivered recently about fighting terrorism and fixing the economy were generally good.They’d make good stump speeches and he should shorten them to twenty minutes and repeat at least one of them every day.But the most important thing about those careful, joke-free teleprompter speeches wasn’t what Trump said or even how he said it.It was that he was speaking to the whole country, not just the people in the auditorium.He wasn’t seeking the instant approval of the audience with his “Crooked Hillary” shtick or promises to build a border wall and make Mexico pay for it.In those two serious policy speeches Trump did what my father did in Berlin in 1987 at the Brandenburg Gate, when he told Mikhail Gorbachev to “Tear down this Wall!”My father wasn’t merely speaking to the huge crowd in front of him, he was speaking beyond them to all the people on the other side of the Berlin Wall who were not free.Trump has to start speaking to a wider, broader, larger audience — the independents and Republicans that he’s got to get to vote for him.He needs to do it every day. He can’t slip back to delivering his applause lines. We’ve heard those jokes.We’ll soon see whether Trump’s new team of Kellyanne Conway and Steve Bannon can make a difference in his behavior or focus.Conway is a pro who knows what she’s doing. But you can hire the best people on the planet and it won’t help if you don’t listen to them.While Team Trump is in a hiring mood, how about finding someone who actually knows how to stage a campaign speech?When Trump was in Wisconsin earlier this week talking about the economy and how the Democrat Party’s has failed and betrayed black people, I don’t think I saw a single black person.It was incredibly amateurish stagecraft.It’d be like giving an important policy speech about the plight of out-of-work coal miners to an audience of nuns or guys in three-piece suits.I realize Trump isn’t exactly surrounded by black supporters. And I know the part of Wisconsin he was in was 95 percent white.But couldn’t someone in his campaign have found fifty black people to be in the crowd so the media couldn’t react in the knee-jerk way they did?My father’s media genius, the late deputy chief of staff Michael Deaver, would have had a thousand blacks in that audience even if he had had to pay them to be there.Trump has to do a lot more learnin’ and a lot more hirin’.And if he doesn’t do it real soon he’ll be back running his business empire, living a quiet life in Trump Tower and getting in almost as many rounds of golf each week as President Obama.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
