Quality of wood is very important because it is with the help of wood only, that you can make the best quality wooden frame that is a must for the whole construction. This wooden frame is popularly known as the ribs. The ribs are positioned in such a way that the hull can be built on the upside down direction with the help of the jig.

After the first phase is over, the next thing is to attach the longitudinal members of the wooden frame with the notch slots that are available in the ribs. The first element used is quite heavy and is known as keelson and it runs to the center down to the ribs. It is on the forward end point of this element only, that the vertical timber is attached. This vertical timber is known as stem and is used in forming the prow for the plywood boat.

Funding gap forces library closures in Jackson County, Oregon

Funding gap forces library closures in Jackson County, Oregon

Wednesday, February 14, 2007

Due to a US$23 million budget shortfall, all public libraries in Jackson County, Oregon are scheduled to close April 6. The U.S. Congress did not renew the Secure Rural Schools and Self-Determination Act, which replaces property tax revenues with revenue sharing from timber harvests. Jackson County used the revenue to pay for libraries and sherriff’s patrols. Voters rejected a property tax increase last November. A similar increase will appear on the May ballot; such increases must pass a double-majority vote: a majority of county voters must turn out for the election, and a majority of those must support the increase.

Supporters hope the measure will pass this time. “Many people didn’t believe we were going to close libraries.” said County Commissioner C.W. Smith. The Ashland City Council has said it would find a funding solution to keep their branch of the library open; other cities have not made similar statements. Some alternative funding solutions, such as charging subscription fees, have been considered. However, charging fees for access to libraries is illegal in Oregon.

Jackson County is located in Southern Oregon, and has a population of 181,000. The Jackson County Library System consists of 15 branches.

4 Reasons On Why You Should Get A Life Insurance

Submitted by: Insurancesc Leads

We often hear people ask: “Do I need Insurance?” Almost everyone doubts to get one. Why? Because of the fast-spreading scams and frauds that pretend to be a legal insurance company but does nothing but steal your money and swindle your bank accounts. But let’s go back to the topic. Do we really need insurance? The answer is, of course, yes! We need this in almost every aspect of our lives. Whenever we drive a car, we need car insurance. We need insurance to protect both our lives and our family’s. Also, some of our possessions need also to be insured. One of the most important types of insurance is the Life Insurance. There are many reasons why we should get one. I have listed some of the main reasons below.

1st – Life in the world is getting tougher and tougher each day. You begin to worry about almost everything including the food that you’ll eat. Even if death comes upon you, worries will never stop bother your family because even a common burial costs a lot of money. And even if you don’t have a family, you don’t want people to just dump your body in the ocean.

2nd – You’re family will never be burdened with financial problems. Expenses such as mortgage payments and vehicle payments, among others, will continue long after you’ve drawn your last breath. Your family will still feel your support even though you’re long gone.

3rd – Because of your parents’ old age, they cannot work anymore to earn money and their pensions are not enough to support their lives. That’s why you struggle and earn a living for them. You provide them with not only the basic needs but also some of the things that we consider luxury. But what if you die today? You do not want seeing your parents struggle in the remaining days of their lives right? Having your parents named as beneficiaries under a life insurance policy could provide them the things that they would need in the future.

4th – You are the one taking care of the education of your children. Because of your desire to let your children achieve their dreams you send them to a good school though it has a very high tuition fee. But what if you can no longer pay the bills of your children’s education because of your death? Being insured in a life insurance not only takes care of your burial and household, it also provides future educational expenses for your children. Therefore, though you do no longer exist, your children are assured upon having the best education that they will need.

Of course these are not only the reasons why you should be insured. There are many more reasons depending upon your status in life and capabilities. His reason may differ from your reason but whatever that is, it is still for your benefit and of course your loved ones too.

At least fifteen dead after landslide in Indonesia

At least fifteen dead after landslide in Indonesia

Thursday, February 25, 2010

At least fifteen people have been killed as the result of a landslide which occurred in Indonesia on Tuesday. According to BBC News Online, at least sixteen were killed. It is thought that up to seventy people were killed as a result of the landslide, which occurred in a village near to the city of Bandung.

At one point, villagers attempted to dig out surviving victims from the rocks and mud by using their bare hands, as rescue efforts were suspended temporarily due to heavy rain, before recommencing after lifting equipment arrived. At least sixteen dead bodies have been recovered by Wednesday. Roughly five hundred people are contributing to the search and rescue.

Priyadi Kardono, spokesperson for the Disaster Management Agency, stated: “We’ve found fifteen bodies so far and estimate that there are up to 70 people still missing.” He also commented that fifteen other people had been injured, of which two have been hospitalised.

U.S. Senate passes landmark health care reform bill

U.S. Senate passes landmark health care reform bill

Thursday, December 24, 2009

The United States Senate has approved a hard-fought measure to overhaul the health care system. The vote will be followed by the difficult process of reconciling the Senate-passed bill with one approved by the House of Representatives, in order to get a final measure to President Barack Obama.

How do you feel about the bill’s passage? Do you think it will be effective or fail?
Add or view comments

“The yeas are 60, the nays are 39. H.R. 3590 as amended, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is passed,” Vice President Joe Biden announced. Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky did not show up for the vote leading to the 39 nays. Mike Reynard, a spokesman for Bunning, said in an e-mail that “The senator had family commitments.”

The vice president presided over the Senate at the time of the vote in his role as President of the United States Senate.

As expected, Republicans voted against the bill while all Democrats and two Independents, Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, voted for it.

At an estimated $87 billion, the measure would expand health insurance coverage to about 30 million more Americans currently without it, and create new private insurance marketplaces, or exchanges, to expand choice.

And, like the slightly more expensive measure passed by the House of Representatives, the Affordable Health Care for America Act, it would end a practice by private insurance companies of denying coverage to individuals with existing health problems.

Both the Senate and House measures would require nearly all Americans to purchase some form of insurance, while lower-income Americans would receive help from federal government subsidies.

This is a victory because we have affirmed that the ability to live a healthy life in our great country is a right and not merely a privilege for the select few.

In remarks before the vote, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Democrat from Nevada, said opponents had done everything they could to prevent the vote from taking place.

Speaking to reporters, Reid and others hailed the vote as a victory and a major step toward providing millions more Americans with access to health care. “This is a victory because we have affirmed that the ability to live a healthy life in our great country is a right and not merely a privilege for the select few,” Reid said.

Reid and others including Robert Byrd, the 92-year-old Democrat from West Virginia, paid tribute to Senator Edward Kennedy, who died this past August after spending decades of his career in the Senate pursuing health care reform.

When casting his vote Byrd said, “Mr. President, this is for my friend Ted Kennedy. Aye.”

Victoria Reggie Kennedy, the widow of Senator Kennedy, watched the proceedings from the Senate visitor’s gallery, as did Representative John Dingell, Democrat from Michigan, who has been a long time advocate of health care reform and who sponsored and introduced the House version of the health care reform bill.

In the final hours of debate on the Senate bill, Republicans asserted it would be ineffective and add sharply to the U.S. budget deficit.

Mr. President, this is for my friend Ted Kennedy. Aye.

Senator Jeff Sessions, Republican from Alabama said of the bill, “This legislation may have a great vision, it may have a great idea about trying to make the system work better. But it does not. These are huge costs [and] it’s not financially sound.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed to defeat the bill when the Senate reconvenes in January saying, “This fight is not over. This fight is long from over. My colleagues and I will work to stop this bill from becoming law.”

Senator Olympia Snowe, a moderate Republican from Maine who helped approved the Senate Finance Committee’s version of health care reform, the America’s Healthy Future Act, earlier in the year and who remarked she may not vote on the final bill, said, “I was extremely disappointed,” noting that when the Democrats reached their needed 60 votes to overcome a filibuster, “there was zero opportunity to amend the bill or modify it, and Democrats had no incentive to reach across the aisle.”

Ahead are difficult negotiations with the House of Representatives to craft a final bill President Obama would sign into law. These talks, which will formally get under way early in the new year, will take place amid anger among many liberal House Democrats the Senate bill failed to contain a government-run public health insurance option.

This fight is not over. This fight is long from over. My colleagues and I will work to stop this bill from becoming law.

Members of the House Progressive Caucus have vowed to fight to keep this public option in any final legislation that emerges, along with other provisions they say are needed to protect lower and middle-income Americans and hold insurance companies accountable.

In a statement, the Democratic chairmen of three key House committees said while there are clear differences between House and Senate bills, both will bring fundamental health care coverage to millions who are currently uninsured.

Obama administration officials have been quoted as saying they anticipate negotiations on a final bill would not be complete until after the President’s State of the Union Address in January, and could slip even later into the new year.

If passed, this will be the most important piece of social policy since the Social Security Act in the 1930s, and the most important reform of our health care system since Medicare passed in the 1960s.

President Obama issued a statement to the press in the State Dining Room in the White House saying that the vote is “legislation that brings us toward the end of a nearly century-long struggle to reform America’s health care system.”

He also pointed out the bill’s strengths, noting, “The reform bill that passed the Senate this morning, like the House bill, includes the toughest measures ever taken to hold the insurance industry accountable. Insurance companies will no longer be able to deny you coverage on the basis of a preexisting condition. They will no longer be able to drop your coverage when you get sick. No longer will you have to pay unlimited amounts out of your own pocket for the treatments you need. And you’ll be able to appeal unfair decisions by insurance companies to an independent party.”

He also noted how historic the bill is, saying, “If passed, this will be the most important piece of social policy since the Social Security Act in the 1930s, and the most important reform of our health care system since Medicare passed in the 1960s.”

Obama noted the potential social impact, saying, “It’s the impact reform will have on Americans who no longer have to go without a checkup or prescriptions that they need because they can’t afford them; on families who no longer have to worry that a single illness will send them into financial ruin; and on businesses that will no longer face exorbitant insurance rates that hamper their competitiveness.”

Obama afterwards made phone calls to various Senators and other people, including Victoria Kennedy and David Turner of Little Rock, Arkansas. Mr. Turner had his health insurance rescinded in January of last year, after his insurance company went back into his record and alleged that he failed to disclose his full medical record at the time he applied for coverage. Turner was First Lady Michelle Obama’s guest during her husband’s speech to a joint session of Congress on health care reform back in September.

How To Choose Your Enterprise Mobility Partner

August 14th, 2020 in It Services | No Comments

Submitted by: Jennifer Lewis

Unless you are an organization with internal capabilities to service your enterprise mobility projects, you would probably need to partner with someone who does. In your enterprise mobility journey, the choice of the right partner is paramount. You need an organization that will understand and appreciate your needs, and turn your mobilization dream into reality. If you make a wrong choice, you would end up sinking a lot of money and effort without any results, much less an ROI.

Forrester research has categorized the enterprise mobility services providers into 4 buckets.

1. UI focused, design oriented companies these are the organizations you choose if you are looking for low complexity, customer facing applications. The strength of these organizations is creating beautiful UIs, which are engaging as they are good looking. Their USP is creative design, and you can see it in their products.

2. Technology centric, flexible boutiques These are smaller establishments with great developer teams. They are willing to bend over backwards to accommodate your needs. The customers like them because they pay them attention, and make them feel special.

3. Large, global organizations, with a big portfolio These organizations are large, with ample funding, and can handle complex, long term projects. They have resources for multiple technology types, and can bring significant technology expertise to bear when required.

4. Telecom providers offering managed services historically used to providing and managing networks, the telcos have diversified into providing end-to-end network services. They have something that any other category of providers does not the control over the transport layer.

Now how do you pick the right vendor for your requirements? There are some key factors that need to be considered when making the choice. These can be classified into 3 broad buckets

1. Relevance – you need to understand the partner s existing offerings, and how do they map to your requirements. You need to look at any existing products, and see how mature they are. Look at UI design, functional specs, and performance. The vendor s service portfolio along with the consulting capabilities also needs to be taken into consideration. See what consulting services they provide for end-to-end mobility solutions. Their service levels should match up to your business commitment, and user requirements. Another factor to consider is the partner s capabilities and past experiences in creating, deploying and managing the scope the size of yours, preferably in the same vertical.

2. Vision and future roadmap mobility is a strategic direction, and is going to be in your environment for a long time. Therefore, it is important that you choose a partner that is not only relevant to your environment today, but also has the right direction for the future. See where they are spending their research and development dollars, and what platforms they are investing in. Understand how their story and offerings are different from the competition. You want to find services oriented partner, and not a product company that provides services on the side. Other factors to consider would be their business model sustainability in the long run, their partnerships, and market positioning.

3. Reputation and image Budgets are too tight to make all the mistakes on your own. You need to understand how the market perceives the organization, along with their existing customers. See their growth numbers employee strength. Check if they are having higher than normal attrition, and how cash rich the company is.

These parameters will help you find the right partner after proper evaluation.

Highway billboard gives Moscow drivers an unexpected show

Highway billboard gives Moscow drivers an unexpected show
August 7th, 2020 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Drivers in the Russian capital, Moscow, were given an unexpected show courtesy of a 30-by-20 foot electronic highway billboard when an explicit pornographic video was played for nearly twenty minutes in place of the paid advertisement clips that are usually shown. The incident happened near the entrance into Serpukovskiy tunnel on Sadovoe Ring Road, about 2 kilometers south of the Kremlin.

“Within three minutes we found it out, and within fifteen minutes the screen was shut off,” the deputy head of the Moscow city advertising committee, Alexander Menchuk, said in a statement to Interfax. A passerby told the Associated Press that she was “so shocked that I couldn’t even shoot video or take a picture of it.”

The display screen’s owner, the Three Stars Advertising Agency of, said that computer hackers attempting to execute a practical joke were likely to blame. Viktor Laptev, commercial director for the firm said, “They were either acting out of hooliganism or were from a rival company.”

Although a city official has been quoted as telling local media that Moscow would increase security of data transmission in light of what happened, local police say they have yet to receive a single complaint about the incident, and thereby have not opened an investigation. Nudity on television is officially banned in Russia.

NSW Parliament passes alcohol-fuelled violence bill hours after drafting

NSW Parliament passes alcohol-fuelled violence bill hours after drafting
August 6th, 2020 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Saturday, February 1, 2014

Thursday morning, members of the Parliament of New South Wales, Australia, discussed drafts of two bills relating to liquor intoxication assault crimes starting at 10 o’clock in the morning (AEDT; 2100 UTC), and approved them later during the day: the Lower House approved at midday and the Upper House at 7pm. The new legislation imposes harsher penalties on behaviour under alcohol influence, and a set of other restrictions in the Sydney central business district (CBD).

The full formal names of the bills are Liquor Amendment Bill 2014 and Crimes and Other Legislation Amendment (Assault and Intoxication) Bill 2014. The latter was assented, while the former was still pending assent from the Governor-General. The bills were cognate. The latter formally commenced on Thursday except for Schedule 5, maximum fines changes, subject to commence on a day appointed by proclamation.

The opposition said they would support the legislation before they saw it, citing support of any progress on such laws. The opposition leader, John Robertson, said “We will support the Government’s one-punch laws. The Government had to be dragged kicking and screaming to do something about alcohol-fuelled violence.”

The parties, while actively discussing the draft, did not support amendments raised during the discussion and the bill passed more quickly than usual, on the same day. However, Greens Member of Parliament (MP) John Kaye didn’t support the bills, naming some issues he didn’t expect the bill to address but found more important, such as “the dangerous promotions of deep discounting of alcohol, the failure to enforce responsible service of alcohol in venues and excessive liquor outlet density”.

One provision defined a new offense, assault causing death while intoxicated — by alcohol or other drugs — with an eight-year non-parole period. The penalty notice fines for misconduct and swearing in public were raised from AU$200 and $150 to $500, while the maximum fine for “continuation of intoxicated and disorderly behaviour following move on direction” — direction “to leave a public place and not return for a specified period” — was increased from 6 penalty units ($660) to 15 penalty units ($1,650).

The legislation also restricted sales of alcohol from bottle shops in the CBD until 10pm instead of midnight.

The bill was drafted in response to death of 18-year-old teenager named Daniel Christie on January 11, following eleven days in hospital after allegedly being punched by drunk Shaun McNeil, 25, at Kings Cross. He allegedly also attacked Daniel’s brother, Peter; McNeil’s court case has been adjourned until March.

Commercial Insurance, Understanding The Need &Amp; The Coverage

August 4th, 2020 in Workplace Policy | No Comments

Submitted by: A.Noton

Commercial insurance is one of the most imperative investments that a business owner will ever make. This is the coverage that will protect assets, investments, and the very heart of the company. Below is some information on commercial insurance which you may find useful.

What is commercial insurance?

Business insurance is designed to protect the assets of businesses, and commercial establishments. There are commercial policies which are appropriate for all size companies. As well, policies may be tailored to meet the needs of the individual company itself.

What types of events does the business insurance protect against?

YouTube Preview Image

There are different policy options depending on need. However, most policies offer coverage against such things as, theft, fire, property damage, and general liability.

Does a small business need commercial insurance?

Though all businesses need such coverage, it may be especially important to the small business owner. If a company is not incorporated, owners may be at even greater risk in the event of unforeseen circumstances. Small business owners could lose not only business related capital, but more importantly, they could suffer a loss of personal assets should potential loss or law suits occur. This means assets such as the family home, vehicles, etc. could be in jeopardy. Business insurance will prevent this type of stress and hardship.

Does business insurance include workers compensation coverage?

Some enterprises may opt to purchase workers compensation policies through a different company than the one which provides them with fire, theft, and general liability coverage. However, often the same insurance company will provide for all commercial insurance needs. Many times it is less expensive to purchase all coverage from the same company. There often will be a package rate available. Which even you choose, be certain to purchase adequate workers compensation coverage. Workers compensation is the coverage that will pay for medical expenses of employees, should they become injured on the job. It is of the utmost importance to have this protection.

How to choose the best insurance company for your business

When searching for a commercial insurance company, the key is to find one that is reputable. They should be able to meet all coverage needs of the business, provide comparable rates, and have a reputation of providing excellent customer service, ease of claims, and prompt settlements. If you are considering purchasing insurance from a company check with the better business bureau. See what type of rating they have, and how many complaints have been filed against them. This will give you an idea of how reliable the firm is.

Before purchasing a commercial insurance policy compare rates, and offered coverage from multiple companies. Find agents who will take the time to address all your questions and concerns. This is imperative. A good agent will be willing to invest the time it takes to make certain that all aspects of coverage have been thoroughly explained. Once you have notes on several of the best insurance providers, narrow your choices down to the one that best meets the needs of you company.
