COVID-19 is spreading rapidly in the United States, and behavioral risk mitigation strategies are the best option for slowing the spread of this disease?IS IT TRUE the reality of coronavirus is that it will reach every location in the nation that has airports and interstate travel?… Evansville, Indiana is no exception to this rule and just because a case has not yet been officially acknowledged or identified, it is a virtual guarantee that some cases are already here?…those who make fun of this and make assurance without scientific basis are nothing but cheerleaders and fools?…at this point, all scientific evidence points to more cases spread more broadly?…it is advised not to follow the example of other fools of Coachella Valley, California who believed their elected officials and medical providers when they made hollow guarantees that they would protect the masses from Coronavirus?IS IT TRUE the retail, restaurant, and hospitality service providers of California’s Coachella Valley absorbed a significant blow Sunday when it was announced that the BNP Paribas tennis tournament that draws as many as 450,000 attendees was canceled due to a single case of coronavirus being identified in the Coachella Valley?…the tennis tournament that has been held in the Coachella Valley since 1976 has grown to be one of the highest economically impactful events hosted here?… According to a 2017 study, the total economic impact to the valley was $406 million including $19 million in tax revenue into the coffers of local governments?…the BNP Paribas is not the only entertainment event that has a high level of impact on the Coachella Valley’s economy every spring?IS IT TRUE California’s Coachella Valley region also benefits from the ANA Women’s Golf Tournament, a pair of dance parties in Palm Springs, and of course the Coachella and Stagecoach Arts and Music Festivals at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio?…according to local economists, the three music festivals also have a collective impact of just over $400 million per year too?…the tennis tournament was canceled after the Riverside County Department of Health declared the region to be in a medical crisis?…the cancellation came 16 hours before the event was scheduled to start and after the contestants and numerous attendees from all over the world had already arrived?…the decision seems a bit harsh for a single case but it must be remembered that there is no cure for COVID-19 and what looks like panic and overreaction may well be the best course of action to take?…this is especially true for a population that is disproportionally older as is the population of Indian Wells where the tournament is held?IS IT TRUE the day after the cancellation of the tennis tournament, the businesses of the valley began to express concern about the possibility of other events being canceled just like the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas and the Calle Ocho and Ultra Music Festivals in Miami have been?…the potential for loss of economic impact in the Coachella Valley is on the order of a billion dollars?…that is sufficient to get the attention of business leaders and owners across the valley?…on Tuesday the music festivals were canceled but immediately rescheduled for October which salvaged half of the negative economic impact?…literally thousands of temporary jobs are supported annually by these events?… these temporary jobs provide extra wages to service workers who supplement their full-time jobs to make ends meet or students who are interested in earning a little extra money for tuition, books and gas to travel to college campuses outside the valley to pursue an education?… our medical providers all get business from event attendees and even upscale restaurants will feel the pinch?IS IT TRUE that when the fun and games stop, nearly every business in the Coachella Valley is negatively impacted?…here are few locations that are more dependent on a single business cluster that this region is even though there are many places that are envious of all of the entertainment and tourism activities that are held here?…companies that are not dependent on fun and games that can weather the storm of cancellations and those kinds of companies are the key to the diversification of the economy?… locations that scoff at the potential for infection are woefully ignorant?…just last week some elected officials in Southern California were assuring tourists that there were no coronavirus victims there and that the shows will go on?…today, the participants in that artificial dissemination of misplaced confidence look like fools?IS IT TRUE we wonder why not one newly elected Evansville City Council member hasn’t demanded that City Controller Russ Lloyd, Jr. make public how much the City of Evansville has paid to help subsidize the Evansville Thunderbolts?

IS IT TRUE the most effective members of the Evansville City Council Finance Committee was John Friend, CPA?  … it’s obvious that it would extremely beneficial if the current City Council Finance Chairman, Ron Beane would make an appointment to talk with Mr. Friend on how to properly read and understand the complicated City Of Evansville budget?IS IT TRUE we find it hard to believe that an organization that does a good job at spending a bunch of money planting trees in the downtown area, displaying Christmas lights and sponsoring social events would actually have the analytical capacity of adding anything of financial value in multi-million dollar real estate decisions? …that one of the best-kept secrets in Evansville is who are the three (3) Board members of the EID?IS IT TRUE that the Vanderburgh County Superior Court Judge Richard G.

Young highlights Indiana Paycheck Protection Program success stories

first_img (Saige Driver/95.3 MNC) The Senate reconvened this week after a weeks-long break because of the coronavirus pandemic.Sen. Todd Young has been an ardent supporter of the Paycheck Protection Program, which he said has helped many small businesses in Indiana stay on their feet.“The thing that I have heard most consistently from people is that the Paycheck Protection Program was the right program at the right time,” Young said to reporters on Capitol Hill Tuesday. “We know in the state of Indiana this program has worked.”Young highlighted several businesses that have benefited from the PPP. Such as Troyer Products in Elkhart which he said was able to keep 21 workers on staff because of funding from the program.He also touched on another example in Immanuel Lutheran Church in Seymour which received a PPP loan that enabled them to keep their church staff, as well as the staff for the church-run daycare.“I’m proud of my colleagues on the small business committee who help to develop this program,” Young said. “We will continue to be responsive to the needs of Hoosiers and all Americans and very thoughtful as we consider potentially spending more resources here until we get to the other side of this virus.”Sen. Mike Braun was supportive of the plan but is wary on whether or not Congress should pass another relief package as many other lawmakers on Capitol Hill have been pushing for. The U.S. Treasury is expected to borrow around $3 trillion between April and June this year.“That will come back to roost,” Braun told the Fox Business Network. “We weren’t supposed to be where we are now in public debt until about three to four years down the road.”He said there is still a systemic issue in Washington D.C. when it comes to government spending.

Fancy a crisp sandwich? Shop launches in Yorkshire

first_imgAn outlet that sells only crisp sandwiches has launched in West Yorkshire. Mr Crisp, launched by Mark Pearson, stocks more than 50 varieties of crisps to be served in white or brown bread, teacakes or baguettes for £1. Toppings can be bought for another 50p and include options such as ketchup, peanut butter, jam and marshmallow.Pearson told The Daily Mail that feedback to the opening of the shop in Keighley, West Yorkshire, has been “really positive”.“I have always had an idea to launch a crisp sandwich shop,” said Pearson.“I sat on the idea for six months, working on sourcing which crisps and flavours to have and doing some market research.“Now I feel the time is now or never. I could either sit on the fence and get left behind or go and take a chance.”So high are his hopes that Pearson is already thinking about opening another two shops before the end of the year.The concept follows that of Simply Crispy in Belfast, which operated a four-week pop-up in January with much success.Single-concept eateries are currently enjoying a boom with a spate of them opening recently from the Cereal Killer Café in Shoreditch, which sells only cereals, to Foxcroft & Ginger which partnered with Beyond Retro to launch UK’s first specialist poached egg bar in its Dalston store in June.last_img read more

Engineer Katia Bertoldi to receive ASME’s Young Investigator Award

first_img Read Full Story Katia Bertoldi, associate professor in applied mechanics at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), has been selected to receive the 2014 Thomas J. R. Hughes Young Investigator Award of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).The award, established in 1998, recognizes special achievements in applied mechanics for researchers under the age of 40.The ASME Executive Committee selected Bertoldi on the basis of her significant contributions to the theory and simulation of the mechanics of soft materials and structures. Her research combines theoretical, computational, and experimental methods to gain deeper insight into the nonlinear behavior of materials and structures. In particular, she uses large deformation and instabilities to drastically change the properties of soft materials in response to external stimuli such as applied forces and electric fields.The aim of her group is to establish relationships between the internal structure of a material and its mechanical properties, especially those with “tunable” properties, in order to understand, improve, and even discover materials that would impact a wide range of fields. The possible applications of her work include, for example, acoustic switches, robots capable of changing shape based on changes in the environment, and adaptive optical systems.Bertoldi is also a faculty associate of the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center at Harvard, and a Kavli Scholar at the Kavli Institute for Bionano Science & Technology at Harvard SEAS.last_img read more

Family Guy, Full House & More Send Up Fiddler on the Roof

first_img Family Guy Would you pay to see William Shatner in a Providence Performing Arts Center production of Fiddler on the Roof? We totally would. Imagine the diction! The gesticulations! The hotel room discounts! (Fun fact: This Star Trek alum never played Tevye in real life, but Leonard Nimoy did.) Mrs. Doubtfire We always knew Mrs. Doubtfire looked great in a housedress, but who knew she could also predict the future? In this clip, the late Robin Williams sings a verse of “Matchmaker” from Fiddler on the Roof with Harvey Fierstein as his makeup artist brother. Fierstein later went on to play Tevye on Broadway in 2004! Full House There’s nothing more embarrassing than having your family burst into tears when you leave for the first day of school. Oh, except when they cry and follow you around singing “Sunrise, Sunset.” Come on, Danny, Uncle Jesse and Joey. Get it together. Community Did someone say rapping rabbis? When Professor Garrity decides to direct an all-black production of Fiddler on the Roof, cringe-worthy comedy ensues. Here, Donald Glover leads the showstopping number “It’s Hard to Be Jewish in Russia” from Fiddler, Please. Fiddler: Lego Edition And just like Vanessa Williams, we’re gonna go and save the best for last. Some stop-motion animation genius created this impressive all-Lego production of Fiddler on the Roof for your viewing pleasure. We may or may not have staged a similar production with our Barbies in second grade.Check back all week long for more Fiddler features!center_img View Comments Mazel tov, Fiddler on the Roof is celebrating its 50th anniversary!

Plan de la AEE No Va por Buen Camino

first_imgPlan de la AEE No Va por Buen Camino FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Mario Cotto for Noticel.com (Puerto Rico):El Instituto de Economía y Análisis Financiero de Energía (IEEFA, por sus siglas en inglés) publicó el pasado 29 de abril un informe negativo sobre el plan de recursos integrados presentado por la Autoridad de Energía Eléctrica (AEE).Según la entidad, el plan de la AEE presentado a la Comisión de Energía a principios de abril y que incluye la construcción del Aguirre Offshore Gas Port (AOGP) sufre de varias fallas fundamentales que probablemente conllevarán una carga económica innecesaria para sus abonados.Entre estas fallas señalaron el que la Autoridad no explore la posibilidad de que la isla no dependa de combustibles importados. El único escenario que plantea la AEE es uno en que $500 millones se transfieren fuera de la Isla para pagar por combustibles fósiles y se gastan sobre $1,000 millones en moverse de la dependencia al petróleo a la dependencia al gas natural.Plan de la AEE no va por buen caminolast_img read more
