Jackson approaching his campaign as a job applicant

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Florida House District 45 Candidate Feature – Greg JacksonGreg Jackson is looking for a job. He wants to work for the residents of District 45. It’s an interesting district with meandering twists and turns through the Orange County map with stops in Apopka, Ocoee, Orlando, Winter Garden, Lockhart, Zellwood, Pine Hills and South Apopka. A majority of its 162,000 residents are minorities (45% are black and 17% are Hispanic), and two-thirds of its 90,000-plus voters are registered Democrats.Greg JacksonDistrict 45 is in need of a representative in Tallahassee for the Florida State Legislature, and Jackson believes he is the man for the task.He sat down with The Apopka Voice to participate in the District 45 Candidate Feature series, but before the interview began he handed out his five-page resume’, which includes 14 Professional, Civic and Community Affiliations (including the legal advisor to The Apopka Community Task Force on Violence), 22 Noteworthy Presentations, Lectures and Seminars (including the Master of Ceremonies at the Marvin C. Zanders Humanitarian of the Year Awards Banquet), and 22 Community Service Activities (including his role on the Board of Trustees at his St. Paul AME Church in Apopka).Jackson is currently an Associate Attorney with the Conroy Simber, P.A. law firm in Orlando, and General Counsel for the town of Eatonville’s Community Redevelopment Agency. He was previously an Intelligence Analyst for the US Navy Reserve, and a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of Florida assigned to Economic Crimes.His range of experience is wide, and it’s that range that Jackson features as his distinctive qualifications in this election. “Education is going to open doors to a lot of things, because it not only prepares people, but it also shows employers that they have individuals who can step out of this community and into the jobs that they are looking to bring to this area.”-Greg Jackson“When I was an Assistant State Attorney General, I was charged with and given the task of representing and protecting the rights of Floridians. And so having that experience from a legal and legislative standpoint gives me a deep level of experience. Being in the State House of Representatives would be an extension of that experience. I have an intimate understanding of how business works… of how government works. I’ve actually drafted and crafted laws that were put into place in the state of Florida to protect its citizens. I believe I will have a unique view on how to make things work. No one else in this race has my diversity of experience, and District 45 is a diverse region. It has rural, urban, agricultural and industrial sectors. In order to properly represent all their interests, it’s important to have diverse areas of experience, deep-rooted experience at how to handle and deal with a wide range of issues.”Jackson: “When you go to communities and knock on doors, violence is not the first thing they talk about – it’s jobs.”Jackson doesn’t live in South Apopka, but his roots to the area are deep, and his service to the community is well known.“I work quietly, but passionately in the community to ensure that anytime something is needed, anytime resources are needed, I’m there to say ‘tell me what you need’, or ‘here is something I can bring to the table’,” he said.Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer confirmed his quiet service to the community in an endorsement he sent to Jackson in July.“My friend Greg Jackson has a true servant’s heart,” Kilsheimer wrote in his endorsement. “Over the past four years, I have personally witnessed him invest sweat equity into serving the residents of Apopka, and particularly the residents of South Apopka. I have been with Greg as he organized community clean-ups, served snow-cones to youth at the John Bridges Center and deliver holiday meals to families in need. I am firmly convinced that he has been called to serve in Tallahassee as State Representative for District 45. I have witnessed his skills. I have witnessed his heart for service, and I am proud to endorse him.”Jackson’s plans for South Apopka and for District 45 are comprehensive. They cover a range of subjects including job opportunities, education, training, and transportation. Jackson believes all of them work together to solve most issues in a struggling community – including crime and violence.“When you go to the communities and neighborhoods and you knock on doors, and even in South Apopka, violence is not the first thing they talk about – it’s jobs. We don’t have jobs and we don’t have opportunities. The best way to address this is education. Education is going to open doors to a lot of things, because it not only prepares people, but it also shows employers that they have individuals who can step out of this community and into the jobs that they are looking to bring to this area.”Jackson has specific targets for education and transportation, such as revamping mass transit to better serve South Apopka and West Orange County.“They say Central Florida has a mass transit system, but if you’ve been to New York City or Chicago, you know we don’t have a mass transit system. We have individuals who are taking anywhere from 2-3 hours to get from West Orange County to downtown Orlando to get to work or school. I want to make sure we have the funding necessary to improve our transportation system whether its mass transportation like we have now or a commuter rail system that they’ve always discussed. I want to bring that into fruition.His ideas for education include a new college campus for District 45.“I want to bring a satellite campus from UCF or Valencia to West Orange County. That will help offset some of the travel, and it will also ensure that we have individuals in the community that are prepared for the jobs coming to this area for technology and high-paying manufacturing jobs that are likely to come to this area. Florida Hospital – Apopka is coming sooner than we know. That will prepare people to work in the hospital system as well. In order to address violence in this community, in order to address the disparity in living conditions in the community, you have to be prepared to bring about economic development and jobs to the area.”Jackson is a driven, qualified candidate who has a lot of ideas for his district, and plans to make them work. August 30th is Election Day for District 45, and Jackson is hoping to hear the phrase “you’re hired” from his 162,000 employers. The Anatomy of Fear You have entered an incorrect email address!

In a 358 m² lot, the QP House design aims at the harmonic relation with its terrain: the ground floor plan allows a full longitudinal area to be free, accommodating the garage, balcony, swimming pool, and garden, with an unusual and fantastic free space, when compared to the same site typology, common in similar dwellings. The built floor plan offers natural light, ventilation and visuals of the entire terrain through sliding glass panels, which, when totally opened, integrates internal and external spaces in a singular manner, only possible in warm and sunny Brazilian weather.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanIn the QP House, the living room has variable ceiling heights, allowing for its horizontal boundaries, internal comfort, intertwined with the external balcony, protected by the cantilevered second floor.Save this picture!© Manuel SáThe kitchen also benefits from the transparency and natural ventilation, guaranteed by the large sliding glass doors. The space destined to housekeeping rooms have an ideal area to attend the functionality and fluid free lifestyle that the house demonstrates. The steel “waterfall” style shaped staircase, connecting the two floors, shares the same concept of the house: light, transparency, and elegance.Save this picture!© Manuel SáThe second floor, a prismatic volume that seems to float beneath the ground floor pavilion, accommodates three large master bedrooms and a home office. Besides the large bedroom windows, protected by sliding wooden brise-soleil, another highlight is the bathroom’s skylight domus that illuminate and ventilate the rooms, contrasting with the grandiosity of the ceiling height.

A Focus on Diversified Operations During Upcoming Farm Management Tour

first_img Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Jun 12, 2018 Home Indiana Agriculture News A Focus on Diversified Operations During Upcoming Farm Management Tour A Focus on Diversified Operations During Upcoming Farm Management Tour SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for June 12, 2018Next article2018 Purdue Farm Management Tour Preview and Welcome Weekend Rains on the Tuesday Morning Edition Andy Eubank SHARE 2018-FMT-previewDiversification in a farming operation will be a focal point of the 2018 Purdue Farm Management Tour in Johnson and Shelby Counties this month. This is the 85th tour and Jim Mintert from the Purdue Center for Commercial agriculture says it should be helpful for other operators to see the innovative operations on this tour that are improving their bottom lines through diversification.“One of the challenges facing everybody in Indiana agriculture is tight margins, and we’re looking for ways to improve those margins,” he explained. “One of the ways is to think about diversifying and try to engage in production of a specialty crop that potentially offers the opportunity to earn a higher margin with maybe a little higher level of management. So, that will be one of the focuses of several of the tour stops, and I think it will be very interesting and very helpful for people to hear what those folks have to say.”The farms on the tour are located in a part of the state that has some diverse ground too.“Part of that region is some prairie soils, but a lot of it of course is not, with a little bit of rolling nature to it. We’ve got some wooded areas, and we’ve got some particularly when you get into Shelby County some opportunities for livestock production. We’ll be featuring that on the Douglas farm. They’ve been a long-time pork producer that have made some significant evolutions in terms of how they produce pork and in particular the partnership that they have with the Legan family.”The tour starts Thursday afternoon, June 21 with stops at the Danny & Judy Gill Farm and then Norton Farms, both near Franklin in Johnson County. That night the 2018 Master Farmer Awards Dinner is also in Franklin at 6:30 p.m. at the Beeson Hall Special Event Facility.Then Friday, June 22, Douglas Farms near Flat Rock will host the tour in the morning, followed by a stop at Fischers Food Grade & Fischer Inc. near Shelbyville.  Complimentary lunch will be served there and Dr. Chris Hurt will provide his updated agricultural outlook. The Farm Management Tour is free, but you are asked to pre-register to ensure an accurate meal count. Register at this link.For the Master Farmer dinner, advance registration is required and the cost to attend is $25. Pre-register no later than June 13 to attend.

Far-left review weekly raided

first_imgNews April 2, 2021 Find out more “Reporters Without Borders is shocked by the brutality of the operation and protests against the authorities who, once again, take advantage of anti-terrorist rhetoric to lock up media professionals,” the press freedom body said.The CHD said that the activist being sought had no effective or practical ties with the magazine and his home could have been identified by the use of the legal computer system. But the Ankara court and the police regard Yürüyüs as the mouthpiece of the DHKP. The CHD believes that the raid is part of the continuing pressure to which the magazine has been subject for more than three years.On 7 October 2007, the editor of Yürüyüs, Ferhat Gerçek, was seriously wounded by gunshots from a police officer which left him seriously handicapped.Toyland Tanya, president of the CHD in Istanbul, said the operation violated Article 26 of the Turkish constitution and Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights, of which Turkey is a signatory.Reporters Without Borders and the CHD make a joint appeal to the Turkish authorities to free the Yürüyüs staff. Organisation Reporters Without Borders today condemns a violent raid by Turkish police late last year on the offices of a far-left Turkish weekly in which five people were held.The raid took place on the offices of Yürüyüs and was described officially as an operation to arrest a member of a terrorist organization. It has been strongly criticized by the Contemporary Lawyers Association (CHD).Acting on orders from a court in Ankara police raided the offices of the magazine to arrest an activist of the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party (DHKP) a Marxist-Leninist organization considered a terrorist organization by the European Union, United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Turkey.On the night of December 24 dozens of police officers, backed up a helicopter, used a sledgehammer to smash down the walls of the editorial offices of the magazine. Its offices were badly damaged and 3,000 books and publications were seized from the magazine’s archives.Following the operation on 28 December, Halit Güdenoglu, the magazine’s editor, and three editorial staff, Kaan Ünsal, Cihan Gün, and Musa Kurt, and a guest of the magazine Naciye Barbaros, were arrested on the grounds that they were members of the armed organization the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party.After four days in detention they were transferred to the Sican prison in Ankara. On 4 January the Istanbul appeal court turned down their appeal for release.

Limerick proposal to allow NAMA deliver affordable housing

There are simply not enough homes being built.“Under Labour’s proposal, the focus of NAMA would become one of addressing the serious shortage in supply of residential accommodation for sale or for rent at affordable prices. It would also give NAMA the power to give financial assistance to local authorities and approved housing bodies for the construction of social housing.Labour Party Housing spokesperson Jan O’Sullivan“While I am glad to see Fianna Fáil also coming around to this point of view, it is disappointing that it has taken them so long.“The repurposing of NAMA has the potential to be transformational, but unfortunately the Government are intent on turning it into a private finance initiative.“Including public housing in a new remit for NAMA would provide a framework for the construction of social and affordable homes through NAMA’s remaining land banks. It would also allow the State to tap into the existing expertise and resources already in place at NAMA, and negate the need for the setting up of a new quango to deal with the housing crisis.“What we now need to see from Government and Fianna Fáil is a sense of urgency about ensuring social houses are built, and a national scheme that ensures homes that are built, are affordable.“There is also an opportunity to provide long term, low cost finance to local authorities and approved housing bodies for the construction of social housing, through a repurposed NAMA and HFA that could leverage the €5.3 billion available in the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund.”More housing news here Facebook Decision to enter Phase 4 of reopening Ireland deferred to August 10 Covid crisis impacts building of new homes in Limerick Students warned of rental scams in Limerick last_img read more

The bench comprising of Justices PN Prakash and B Pugalendhi said, “We direct that the Sanitary Supervisors should also ensure that the Sanitary Workers wear the boots apart from masks and gloves while working in market places and report violations, if any, to the Zonal Officers concerned immediately by sending Whatsapp images, so that, the Zonal Officers can take appropriate action against the Sanitary Worker concerned.” The direction was made in the backdrop of a submission made by the City Health Officer that the Sanitary Workers are not as “sensitive” to the situation and they work without wearing protective gears, despite the fact that the Corporation had supplied them with adequate protective equipments. The court was hearing a PIL highlighting the plight of the Sanitary Workers in various local bodies, urging the Court to direct all the city corporations in the state to provide minimum protective equipments, like mask, gloves, shoes, etc., to the workers. Taking exception to the present state of affairs the bench remarked, “We believe that some strict action has to be taken in order to sensitise the Sanitary Workers about the need to wear the protective equipments for their own safety, as well for the well-being of their families.” The bench has further directed that the Helpline number provided by the Madurai Corporation for the public to ventilate their grievances should also be put to use for taking complaints against Sanitary Workers who do not observe adequate precautions. “We believe that this Helpline can also be resorted to by any member of the public to inform the Corporation authorities if they find any Sanitary Worker in a particular area working without protective equipments,” the bench said. In addition to the above, the City Health Officer assured the Court that the Sanitary Supervisors will conduct inspection at least thrice in each Ward and report to the Zonal Officers concerned if they find any Sanitary Worker working without mask and gloves. Before parting, the bench observed the plight of about 2,500 workers in the Drainage Wing of the Corporation and directed the City Engineer, Drainage Wing, Madurai Corporation, to be present before the Court on the next date of hearing.
