OPEC meeting disappoints, gas price surge avoided

Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Fluctuations at the gas pump should be minor Motorists will not have to worry about surging gas prices this holiday weekend after all. Thursday’s OPEC meeting had the potential to cause a stir in the stock market. What actually happened was quite the opposite.Click here for today’s gas price averagesA collection of OPEC and non-OPEC oil producing countries met on Thursday to re-evaluate their existing agreement that calls for a reduction of 1.8 million barrels of crude output per day. This agreement – implemented in November – was an attempt to reduce global crude oversupply and drive up oil prices to $60 per barrel. Within a month, oil prices rose nearly $10 and gas prices climbed 15-30 cents. The price for a barrel of oil reached as high as $54.45 (WTI) in February. This higher price attracted other oil producers – who were not part of the pact – to cash-in. EIA data showed increased oil production from the U.S., Libya, and Nigeria; which countered OPEC’s efforts, pushing oil prices back below $50 in March.Oil prices climbed above $51 this week, as expectations grew that OPEC would not only extend the production cut to nine months instead of six but also implement deeper cuts. On Thursday, OPEC agreed to extend the output cut another nine months, but at the same level. As a result, oil prices dropped nearly $3, settling at $48.90 per barrel.“The expectation of a 9-month extension was already baked into the price of crude oil, so when no additional cuts were passed, the market lost excitement and oil dropped,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “This is good news for motorists because it makes gas prices a little more predictable for Memorial Day weekend. Retail prices should hold steady, with the possibility for minor fluctuations of only a few pennies at the pump.”Thursday’s average price for a gallon of gasoline in Florida was $2.31 – 6 cents more than last year’s holiday, but 35 cents less than Memorial Day 2015. On Monday, the state average increased for the first time in 31 days, rising fractions of a penny, due to higher oil prices.About The Auto Club GroupThe Auto Club Group (ACG) is the second largest AAA club in North America.  ACG and its affiliates provide membership, insurance, financial services and travel offerings to over 9 million members across eleven states and two U.S. territories including Florida.

Matthew Reinhardt named 2018 Apopka Police Officer of the Year

first_img Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here From the Apopka Police DepartmentThere are many reasons APD Officer Matthew Reinhardt is deserving of the Officer of the Year award. As a patrol-level officer, he took on the demanding project of the Apopka Police Fleet Vehicle Coordinator.This job has him working hand in hand with our fleet services scheduling maintenance and handling repairs to damaged vehicles which has dramatically reduced vehicle downtime. He is also the department fleet liaison between fleet management and the contracted vehicle outfitters who apply decals, install lights and make our patrol vehicles functional offices.Officer Reinhardt also alleviated the stress of locating a “pool” or used vehicle when an assigned vehicle is down for service by assigning each squad a designated pool vehicle for use. Officer Reinhardt showed cost savings by coordinating the re-build of an additional Citizens Police Academy vehicle by utilizing three out of service or “dead-lined” vehicles. He coordinated and consolidated the rebuilding of multiple fleet vehicles saving the city in excess of $10,000.Officer Reinhardt assisted in ordering 18 new vehicles in 2018 and he standardized the placement of stripes and insignias making any refit from vehicle to vehicle interchangeable. Officer Reinhardt was also instrumental in implementing an Incident Command Vehicle training for six new operators and upgraded the command vehicle with a functioning mobile dispatch array. He personally installed the hardware, saving over $1000 and eliminating the need for an outsourced contractor.His “user-friendly” set up provides an immediate up and running operation for any contingency with little to no delay. Officer Reinhardt also became the Radio Maintenance Point of Contact which immediately had him take over the department communications need and to coordinate the programming of over 140 radios for the entire department’s handheld and in-car radios. Officer Reinhardt overtook the body-worn camera program and accounted for the collection and return of outdated cameras while reissuing the new cameras.He then personally trained all department personnel in the new program required to operate the system. He sacrificed his personal time to coordinate the necessary training needed to all the rotating shifts. He is now the department’s first point of contact for all radio and body camera issues and liaison between the outside companies that support those systems. For our Accident Form Program, the APD is required to have a template of every crash. Officer Reinhardt took the initiative to create a template of over a dozen of the most dangerous intersections in Apopka. He uploaded the template into all the mobile laptops allowing officers to use a drop-down screen to insert a pre-drawn diagram. This template saves officers time by eliminating the need to reconstruct these most popular intersections.For all of these reasons and so many more Officer Reinhardt is deserving of the Officer of the Year for 2018.

Una mansión de los años 30’s ubicada en un tranquilo emplazamiento dentro de un patio común justo en el centro de la Ciudad de México es transformada en un hogar para una familia. La casa se organiza verticalmente en tres niveles, cada uno con un carácter distinto: espacios funcionales de servicio en planta baja, vida familiar en el primer nivel, y un retiro de privacidad en el nivel de azotea. A townhouse from the 1930s, situated in a quiet setting inside a shared courtyard right in the centre of Mexico City, is transformed into a family home. The house is vertically organised along three levels, each with a distinct character: functional service spaces on the ground level, family life on the upper level, and retreat to privacy on the roof garden level.Save this picture!© Omar MuñozSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Omar MuñozA derelict existing structure was freed from excessive internal walls to create generous living spaces. Patios and openings for roof lights were cut into the building to maximize daylight in the previously dimly lit lower levels. A new floor was added to the top of the existing building by introducing a large overhang roof made of white concrete, providing shadow for the fully glazed interior spaces that benefit from softly moderated daylight. The new rooms are designed with minimal features to enhance the presence of the green roof garden. Full height sliding glass screens all across the top floor open up panoramic views into the rich greenery giving the impression of a secluded oasis within the buzzing city centre. Save this picture!© Omar MuñozSave this picture!Second Floor PlanSave this picture!© Omar MuñozAll new additions are realized in white marble concrete to achieve a contemporary environment with a fresh character. Besides the new roof the entire flooring is realized from cut marble pebbles in direct reference to Mexico City’s lost river beds and lakes that used to form the landscape before the city was established. Furthermore an in-situ concrete bench and table were cast into a niche within the garden. A new spiral stair connects the art deco lower floors with the contemporary garden level letting daylight pass down from roof lights above the stairs. Spaces within the existing structure were joined and revamped with new window openings, wooden flooring, a new fire place, built-in furniture and brass lamps specifically designed for the project. Save this picture!© Juan Carlos GarzaProject gallerySee allShow lessJN2678 Building / Estudio Cubero RubioSelected Projects5 Zaha Hadid Buildings Seen From AboveArticles Share CopyAbout this officeZeller & MoyeOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMexico CityMexicoPublished on March 31, 2017Cite: “Casa Verne / Zeller & Moye” [Casa Verne / Zeller & Moye] 31 Mar 2017.

Trustees’ Week 2017 round-up

first_img Tagged with: Charity Commission NCVO trustees Trustees’ Week 2017 round-up Today marks the end of Trustees’ Week, so here’s a round-up of some of the key events and announcements to have taken place.The week kicked off with the Charity Commission’s report Taken on Trust: the awareness and effectiveness of charity trustees in England and Wales, which found that men outnumber women trustees on boards by two to one and that the vast majority of trustees are white, older with above average income and education. As well as calling for more diversity on boards, it also recommended that guidance and support for trustees should be reviewed and enhanced and should draw on developments in digital technology. A second report, Taken on Trust, the provider perspective on advice and support for charity trustees was delivered by NCVO with the Cranfield Trust. It found that that the uptake of formal support by trustees is low, with trustees reporting finding it difficult in identifying appropriate support. It also showed that trustee recruitment is largely informal, with organisations providing trustee service raising questions about whether existing support offerings are tailored to the needs of trustees.The NCVO held its NCVO/BWB Trustee Conference 2017: Good Governance in Action. Sessions included an update on the legal and regulatory landscape, and sessions on data protection, diversity, mergers, finance and digital technology.NCVO also made a range of its online tools available for free for non-members for the week (so still available today, Friday 17 November).  157 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4center_img Melanie May | 17 November 2017 | News  158 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Scotland’s Third Sector Governance Forum hosted two conferences in partnership with the OSCR, celebrating the work trustees do in Scotland. The first took place in Inverness on 13 November with a second in Edinburgh on 15 November, offering a range of speakers and workshops.The FSI started the week with the launch of its Essential Trustee video series. The films are based on the Charity Commission’s Essential Trustee guide and offer trustees an overview of their core responsibilities. Each film lasts four minutes and offers advice on the key areas Trustees need to consider in order to carry out their duties, including compliance, accountability, and acting in the charity’s best interests.Lord Grade, Chair of the Fundraising Regulator, published a blog on the Regulator’s site on the rewards and challenges of being a trustee, and on the importance of bringing diversity into your trustee board.Judi Dench, Maxine Peake Monica Ali, and Katie Piper were interviewed in the Guardian on why they had become charity trustees and what they had learnt.https://twitter.com/CHICKENSHED_UK/status/931167414875803650STEP launched a new online course, aimed at both established and aspiring trustees. Called The Informed Trustee, the course is designed to equip both established and aspiring trustees with awareness and knowledge of a broad range of governance issues, and in particular charity regulation and charity finance matters. It will cover aspects relevant to the 21st century trustee, including social media and data protection, as well as more long-established topics of charity law, regulation, accounts and risk management.The NCVO and Trustees Unlimited announced an extension of their board level volunteering programme Step on Board, to individuals or companies wanting to help between one and six employees become charity trustees. The Step on Board Open Programme prepares, trains and places professionals onto charity boards as trustees. It is run in two stages, starting with a ‘Becoming a Trustee Briefing’ session which explores what it means to become a trustee, before a ‘Diagnostic and Matching Service’ to match people’s skills, interest and motivations with a suitable trustee role. The next open programme briefing sessions are on: 22nd November 2017 and 9th January 2018 at NCVO’s offices in King’s Cross and can be booked here.And finally, a whole range of charities said thank you to their trustees: About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Another journalist murdered a month before general elections

first_imgNews The bullet-riddled body of Manuel Murillo Varela, a young freelance cameraman, was found in Tegucigalpa yesterday, exactly four months after journalist Anibal Barrow’s abduction and murder. This later murder of a journalist comes just a month before general elections scheduled for 24 November.“We call on the authorities to organize a thorough and independent investigation to shed light on all aspects of this murder,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We also call for an end to impunity for all crimes of violence against journalists, because investigations have been slow to produce results.“In view of the constant violence against journalists and the fact that most cases go unpunished, we urge candidates in next month’s elections to undertake to ensure respect for freedom of information in their districts, and we urge the authorities to create a special committee for the protection of journalists during the election period.”The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights had asked Honduras to take precautionary measures to protect Murillo after a score of policemen kidnapped and tortured him and a colleague for 24 hours in February 2010.Murillo had told the Committee of Relatives of the Disappeared in Honduras (COFADEH) and the Commission for Truth and Reconciliation (CVR) that policemen seeking video footage of demonstrations by opponents of the June 2009 military coup had threatened to kill his family.He continued to work as journalist despite all the threats and intimidation to which he was exposed right up until his murder. His case is emblematic of all the violence against journalists since the coup – violence that seems to be increasing again in the run-up to next month’s elections.In the past four years, Reporters Without Borders has registered nine murders of journalists in which the motives were directly linked to the victims’ work. At least 18 other journalists and information providers have been killed in the same period without it being possible to establish a link with their work.Attempts by independent news providers to cover such issues as mining, the “purge” of the police and the human rights situation seems to prompt almost automatic reprisals.The slowness of judicial investigations and a lack of political will are contributing to the growing problem of impunity. As a result of the violence, censorship and persecution of community media, journalists such as Dina Meza and Fidelina Sandoval have fled abroad.Ranked 127th out of 179 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Honduras has seen a considerable increase in the already high level of violence since the coup and is now one of the world’s most dangerous countries for journalists and human rights defenders.

They didn’t often get to go to school and prospects for them after they ‘aged out’ of the system were very grim and limited. My first thought was to continue helping those girls in China but I soon realized that we have many of the same issues here at home.”Poole, 16, is a 2020 EngineerGirl Ambassador, trained and supported by the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) in collaboration with the Society of Women Engineers (SWE).“Math is my happy place and the thing that brings me joy and motivation in life,” said Poole. “I believe I can share that passion with other girls in a way that will be fun and exciting.”Families Forward Learning Center, located at 980 N.
