Tag: 上海各区gm资源汇总 Financial literacy initiative urges parents to teach kids about money

first_imgThe Vermont Money Smart Child initiative was announced today’as school, State government, business and non-profit officials underscored the need for parents to actively teach their kids about money.Through a three-way partnership between the Vermont Jump$tart Coalition, State Treasurer’s Office, and People’s United Bank, the groundwork has been laid to reach more than 11,000 families with resources parents can use to instruct their children in personal finance. Fifty-seven elementary, middle school and high schools located throughout the state have requested copies of the booklet, ‘How to Raise a Money Smart Child’A Parent’s Guide.’ The schools will distribute the guides to parents this fall.‘It’s important for Vermont’s young people to have the knowledge and skills to manage their personal finances,’ said State Treasurer Beth Pearce. ‘Parents are the best resource to teach their children, but we know it can be difficult for them to begin these conversations because of the personal nature of family finances. Through this initiative, we hope parents will be motivated to share their money management skills and begin a successful dialogue for ongoing conversations about personal finance.’In addition to the distribution of the guide, the partnership will conduct six regional Money Smart Child parent workshops around the state. The free workshops will examine five core areas of financial education; explore how parents can use teachable moments; provide specific parent/child exercises in spending choices, budgeting, credit, and saving; and promote parents supporting one another in working with their children.‘People’s United Bank is committed to supporting programs and activities that enhance the quality of life for all of the local communities we serve,’ said People’s United BankVermont President Michael Seaver. ‘It’s critical that we help prepare the next generation to effectively manage their personal finances and this program will provide practical resources for parents to use in teaching their children.’The Money Smart Child initiative is underwritten by People’s United Bank. The 14-page guide was written by the national Jump$tart Coalition, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the financial literacy of pre-kindergarten through college-age youth by providing advocacy, research, standards and educational resources.‘While our Vermont coalition has worked for years with teachers and schools, this is the first project aimed specifically at assisting parents,’ explained Gregg Mousley, President of Vermont Jump$tart. ‘We are excited by the positive response we’ve received. Teachers routinely communicate to us about the need for more financial education for Vermont’s children. Engaging parents will help further the work that is already going on in our schools.’Today’s announcement was made at Colchester High School. Colchester is the location of one of the six regional workshops. Principal Amy Minor joined State Treasurer Beth Pearce, People’s United Bank Vermont President Michael Seaver, and Jump$tart President Gregg Mousley in answering financial questions from the approximately 50 students present for the announcement. The give-and-take discussion was aimed at modeling the kind of conversations the partnership hopes will be started between parents and their children through the Money Smart Child initiative.‘Colchester High School has offered students instruction in personal finance for 18 years,’ said Principal Amy Minor. ‘As a long-time educator, I know the important role parents play in teaching their children. We are so pleased to be able to distribute guides to our families and host one of the regional workshops.’Other regional workshops will be held in Swanton, Barre, St. Johnsbury, Salisbury, and Ludlow. The partnership will offer the workshops to other Vermont communities interested in hosting a parent event. Schools statewide were offered the opportunity to reserve guides for their families in early May. There are a limited number of printed guides remaining for schools that did not initially request the publication. Schools may contact Vermont Jump$tart via email at [email protected](link sends e-mail). The guide, along with some of the workshop handouts, also are available for viewing on-line by going to the State Treasurer’s financial literacy web pages located at www.MoneyEd.Vermont.gov(link is external). State Treasurer’s Office. 9.15.2011last_img read more

Tag: 上海各区gm资源汇总 Portugal Runs For Four Days on Only Renewable Energy

first_imgPortugal Runs For Four Days on Only Renewable Energy FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享By Story Hinckley in the Christian Science Monitor:From the morning of May 7 to the afternoon of May 11, Portugal’s electricity consumption was fully covered by renewable sources.For 107 hours, Portugal powered all of its electricity from biofuels, hydropower plants, wind turbines, solar panels, and geothermal heat. But this is not the first time that Portugal has boasted an impressive energy statistic.For a few hours at the end of 2011, all of the country’s electricity demands were met by renewable energy. The country’s annual renewable energy consumption has grown in recent years. In 2013, Portugal got almost 26 percent of its electricity from renewables, rising to 63 percent in 2014. But because of a drought, Portugal’s source of renewable electricity decreased to 50.4 percent in 2015. The country’s energy example has won praise from the International Energy Agency (IEA), whose 2016 review of Portugal says its policies have “been strongly oriented towards its ambition to become a major player in the application of renewable energies, especially in sectors such as wind power…. Portugal should be commended for its achievements and its ambitions in large-scale deployment of renewable energy.”Portugal generates 30 percent of its electricity from hydropower, about one quarter from wind, 6.4 percent from biofuels and waste, and 1.2 percent from solar. Wind energy production grew by more that 600 percent between 2004 and 2009, and in 2014, Portugal was second only to Denmark in wind power. “How did Portugal assume such impressive leadership in the clean energy transition?” asks WorldWatch Institute. “The key, as usual, lies in ambitious supportive policies.”Feed-in tariffs, which provide renewable electricity producers with a guaranteed price for each megawatt-hour of energy fed into the country’s power grid, were first introduced in 1988 and have continued to develop, according to WorldWatch. Also, host municipalities of renewable energy receive payments of 2.5 percent of revenue. And the government bought transmission lines from private power companies at the turn of the century, refitting the grid infrastructure to better connect with small electricity generators such as domestic solar panels. Full story and video: http://www.csmonitor.com/Environment/2016/0517/How-Portugal-went-107-hours-on-only-renewable-energy-video?utm_source=Inside+Climate+News&utm_campaign=eeff4b7426-Clean_Economy_Wire12_10_2014&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_29c928ffb5-eeff4b7426-327746333last_img read more

Tag: 上海各区gm资源汇总 Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye

first_imgEvery once in a while, Creature Comforts, the Athens, Georgia-based brewery that has given the wonderful Tropicalia IPA, releases a different version of Athena, their take on the Berliner Weisse style. Back in the day, the Berliner Weisse was often served with a shot of fruit syrup to even out the tart notes. Creature Comforts eschews the sour for loads of fruit, brewing each version with a different fruit to give the sour a level of sweetness. They just released the latest version, which was brewed with cherries, raspberries and cranberries. It’s wonderful, and you should all go drink it, but I’m more interested in another beer that Creature Comforts just released, Reclaimed Rye. It’s actually a year-round beer, but they’ve only just started packaging it in cans, so for most of us, this is the first chance we’ve had to try it.Reclaimed Rye is an amber, which is about as dull of a beer style as you can get. Don’t get me wrong, the amber has its place. It is the great American gateway beer. New Belgium’s Fat Tire. Highland’s Gaelic Ale. An amber was my first craft beer love and I still reach for one occasionally, but it’s not an exciting style. It’s not dark, it’s not light. It’s not sweet, it’s not bitter. It’s just…amber.But Creature Comforts takes the mild amber to new levels in Reclaimed Rye by aging it on French oak. I think it’s the first oak-aged amber I’ve ever had, and it’s a hell of a trick. You smell the wood on the nose and it affects the sip in some interesting ways, delivering acidic notes that balance the sweetness of the style and giving it a really dry finish. And I mean really dry; The beer practically disappears on your tongue, like a magic trick, which is not something that ambers typically do. Yes, there is some malty sweetness and even a bit of vanilla from the time in the barrel, but it’s safe to say that Reclaimed Rye is like no other amber I’ve ever had.Creature Comforts gave it the Reclaimed Rye name to signal the brewers’ intentions to shed new light on the amber ale as a style. In their own words, they are “reclaiming it back from the ordinary.”I can honestly say, Reclaimed Rye is anything but ordinary. Look for it in six pack cans.http://www.creaturecomfortsbeer.comlast_img read more

Tag: 上海各区gm资源汇总 Guatemala Seizes Semisubmersible

first_imgBy Julieta Pelcastre/Diálogo June 09, 2017 From January 1st to May 10th, the Special Naval Force of Guatemala, together with the Ministry of Interior, carried out a set of forceful measures that resulted in the seizure of two vessels, a small plane, 2,000 kilograms of cocaine, and the arrest of 10 suspects, as part of their strategy against drug trafficking. Additionally, in the last 17 months, the Guatemalan Navy has seized 27 vessels from drug traffickers. “Currently, of the drugs that enter the country, 80 percent come in through the Pacific Ocean and 20 percent through the Caribbean Sea, [just] to change the transport method from sea to land. The largest narcotics seizures have been in the Pacific [Ocean], due to the connection that exists with South America on those coasts,” Vice Admiral Boris Castillo Cermeño, commander of the Guatemalan Navy, told Diálogo. “Guatemala’s geostrategic position has turned it into a key point for drug trafficking operations [coming from the south], headed for Mexico and the United States. The flow of drugs along the coasts of this country has increased,” Lizandro Acuña, a security and justice expert at the Institute of National Problems at the University of San Carlos in Guatemala, told Diálogo. According to the Guatemalan Navy, in 2016 the coordinated efforts of this elite naval unit detected and interrupted the illicit maritime traffic of 25 vessels and 7.5 metric tons of cocaine headed to the U.S. and Mexico, a relatively high figure for Guatemala. Unit members also arrested 99 people of different nationalities who were linked to drug trafficking. In this same time period, authorities in this Central American country seized 12.8 metric tons of cocaine. Low profile vessels Vice Adm. Castillo commented that illegal organizations use semisubmersibles or Tiburonera-, Eduardoño-, or colombiana-type vessels, medium-sized fast vessels propelled by 200 horsepower outboard motors, with a 5- to 10-metric ton capacity per trip on average. On April 22nd, during a maritime enforcement patrol, the Pacific Naval Command aboard the Guatemalan Coast Guard ship “Kaibil Balam” (GC-652), located an unnamed, low-profile vessel. It was an abandoned semisubmersible without cargo, crew, or propulsion engines, and it was partially sunk 42 kilometers off the coast between Sipacate and the Nahualete River, according to a press release from the Guatemalan Army. The 5-ton capacity semisubmersible had been abandoned in Pacific waters and had apparently been used to transport narcotics. During their inspection, they found the hull to be in good condition. Inside the vessel, there were hoses for the fuel compartments and filters for the engine, as well as supplies and drinks from Colombian manufacturers. “Thanks to the actions of the maritime commands and the Special Naval Force, Guatemala is, little by little, reducing the flow of vessels used to transport narcotics. This operational effort has also managed to increase the seizure of drugs and cash from these criminals,” Vice Adm. Castillo stressed. “We can’t deny these advances in the fight against drug trafficking. However, [these] structures have the transnational capability and financial resources to use any kind of vessel, even submarines so that the drugs arrive at their main market,” Acuña expressed. Elite unit at the service of Guatemala The best weapon that Guatemala has at sea is the Special Naval Force, an elite unit that operates both in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. The unit performs maritime security, naval rescue, and patrol duties previously conducted by naval commands. Its patrol duty goes beyond Guatemala’s 22 kilometers of territorial waters. This elite unit conducts joint operations with the U.S. Coast Guard and other international agencies for the purpose of dismantling drug transport systems that navigate along the maritime route used by drug traffickers. “The transfer of information and the instruction and training provided by the U.S. government contribute to strengthening security along the coasts where this type of illicit activity has been seen the most. We are also making a contribution to neighboring countries that are cooperating, such as El Salvador, Honduras, and Mexico,” Vice Adm. Castillo said. The importance of international cooperation Guatemala’s course of action against transnational crime is reinforced by Operation Martillo (Hammer), a multinational military force headed by U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM). The operation includes Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Panama, among other countries, in the fight against drug trafficking and organized crime in Central America. Official data from SOUTHCOM indicates that while Operation Martillo, which is just over five years old, has been in force, it has resulted in the seizure of more than 693 metric tons of cocaine and 581 vessels and aircraft, and 1,863 persons arrested, according to SOUTHCOM’s website. SOUTHCOM does ongoing training and keeps members of the Special Naval Force updated on various specialties, such as maritime interdiction, vessel boarding, the search of ships and people, electronic navigation, and coastal patrols, in order to have greater control and thus intercept drugs attempting to enter the Central American country. The lack of technologically sophisticated equipment is the main challenge faced by the Guatemalan Navy in order to have a more successful course of action. “We have some needs and limitations, as all countries do. It’s important to have good information and intelligence, detection satellites, air platforms, and rapid vessels to be more successful in detection, monitoring, and interdiction for the purpose of denying transnational criminal organizations the capability of transporting narcotics and other illicit merchandise by sea,” Vice Adm. Castillo concluded.last_img read more

Tag: 上海各区gm资源汇总 Stars maul Pharoahs in 2013 Afcon warm-up

first_imgGhana’s Black Stars thumped seven time African champions Egypt 3-0 in a warm up game ahead of the 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa.Agyemang Badu began the mauling with a superb header in the first half with substitutes Richmond Boakye Yiadom and Asamoah Gyan getting the two goals in the second half.Egypt failed to qualify for the tournament and looked almost rusty and physical in a game that saw a superb team performance from the Black Stars and pieces of individual brilliance from Kwadwo Asamoah and Agyemang Badu.The Stars were quick and fluid with Bristol City winger Albert Adoma proving a slippery customer to his marker.But it was Udinese Star, Agyemang Badu who shot the Stars ahead in the 17th minute when he soared above his markers and powerfully connected a well taken free kick from Kwadwo Asamoah.The Pharaohs were slow and hardly threatened the Ghana goal with Fatau Dauda almost enjoying the game watching. In a rare attack in the 19th minute, Dauda was quick to grab the ball off the foot of the Egypian striker. The game turned very physical with the Egyptians, guilty for most part.Skipper Anthony Annan became victim of the attacks and was replaced by Derek Boateng.In the 35th minute, Omar Garber was yellow carded for diving after he had, in a sublime one-two situation, got himself in a scoring position in Ghana’s 18 yard box.Coach Akwasi Appiah brought in Richard Boakye-Yiadom for Emmanuel Clottey in the second half and the Italy based striker responded positively.He had earlier failed to connect a teasing cross from the right by Adomah but when Kwadwo Asamoah set him up with a cheeky side-heel on the left, the Italy based striker coolly placed the ball beyond the reach of the Egyptian goal keeper for Ghana’s second. Egypt responded well and breached the Ghana defence with a splitting pass but the resulting strike was too feeble to beat Fatau Dauda who made some really impressive saves on the few occasions he was called upon.In the 75th minute the Pharaohs came close to scoring but Derek Boateng tracked back into defence with a timely tackle in the six yard box.Striker Asamoah Gyan was brought in with a quarter of an hour left and was beautifully set up by Christian Atsu in the 84th minute. The Al Ain striker halted his goal duck for the Stars with the third and final goal for the Black Stars.With three minutes left, Fatau Dauda, in a spectacular fashion, parried a goal bound shot for a corner much to the disappointment of the Egyptians.3-0 it ended for the Stars who will play Tunisia in their second and final warm up game before the Nations Cup begin on the 19 of this month.last_img read more

Tag: 上海各区gm资源汇总 NFL trade rumors: Steelers expect to deal Antonio Brown by Friday

first_imgIt was also reported last week that the 49ers have not engaged in discussions with the Steelers, even though San Francisco was rumored to be one of Brown’s preferred destinations. Antonio Brown could be on his way out of Pittsburgh by the end of the week.Teams that have spoken to the Steelers about a potential trade for the wide receiver have been told that a deal is expected to be in place by Friday, ESPN reported, citing unidentified league sources. The Steelers already have made it clear that they would rather not send him to an AFC North team or the Patriots.Brown, 30, finished with 1,297 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns last season. He has spent his entire nine-year career in Pittsburgh but requested a trade last month after missing the Steelers’ final week of practice and sitting out the regular-season finale against the Bengals amid an alleged feud with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.He recently went into detail about what went wrong with the team over the last few months, pointing to a disconnect between the players and ownership as he refused to take blame in the fallout. According to NFL Media, which also cited unidentified sources, the Steelers have begun telling teams that they are moving quickly and to get their best offers in as soon as possible. The report noted that three teams have entered the running for Brown in the last 48 hours, while the Jets and Cardinals have pulled out.However, ESPN noted later Wednesday it was down to a “one team race” and that “other teams decided the price was too high.” Related Newscenter_img Larry Fitzgerald on Antonio Brown’s criticism of QB: ‘I don’t think he understands how good he has it’ NFL Draft 2019: Kliff Kingsbury says Cardinals have made no decision on top picklast_img read more

Tag: 上海各区gm资源汇总 Thunder star Kevin Durant wins first MVP award

first_imgOklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant (35) drives between Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes (22) and center DeAndre Jordan (6) in the third quarter of Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinal NBA basketball playoff series in Oklahoma City, Monday, May 5, 2014. Los Angeles won 122-105. (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki)OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Kevin Durant has plenty of scoring titles. Now, he finally has an MVP trophy to go with them.The Oklahoma City Thunder star won the NBA’s top individual honor Tuesday, grabbing 119 first-place votes. Miami’s LeBron James, who had won the last two MVP awards and four of the previous five, finished second with six first-place votes and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers was third.Durant, a 6-foot-9 forward, won his fourth scoring crown in five years this season by averaging 32 points per game. He helped the Thunder finish the regular season with a 59-23 record, second-best in the league, despite playing much of the season without three-time All-Star Russell Westbrook by his side because of a nagging knee injury.“He’s been the most consistent guy all season long,” Westbrook said at the end of the regular season. “He’s done a great job of leading us to where we are now. He’s basically put himself in front of everybody else in the league and shown that he’s the best player in the world.”James agreed, saying Monday: “Much respect to him and he deserves it. He had a big-time MVP season.”Durant’s run of 41 consecutive games this season with at least 25 points was the third-longest streak in NBA history. In all, he scored at least 40 points 14 times. He also averaged 7.4 rebounds and a career-high 5.5 assists while shooting 50 percent from the field.“He does everything,” New Orleans coach Monty Williams said. “You just can’t recall a guy that long who can do what he does every single night. Shooting from 30 feet on the floor with confidence and driving to the basket and dunking on guys, and then go post up, and on top of it, a great teammate and good kid.”Durant moved to the front of the pack while Westbrook was out following his most recent knee surgery. Durant averaged 35 points and 6.3 assists during that stretch as the Thunder went 20-7 and remained among the league’s elite.Westbrook’s injury gave Durant an opportunity to use his improving skills as a playmaker.“I’ve always been a player that was excited for my teammates’ success,” Durant said. “Not just mine, but my teammates’ as well. Wanting to see them do well translates to my game, which is wanting to pass the ball and seeing my teammates reap the benefits.”Teammates and opponents say Durant became a more complete player this season. They praised him for improving his court vision, consistently making the extra pass and moving more efficiently without the ball.“What he does is tough to do,” teammate Nick Collison said. “I think we take it for granted. To be able to stay on for long periods of time — have to cut hard, catch the ball in the right spot and defend on the other end — is tough to do. To be able to show that shows that he has an edge to him. He doesn’t take a night off.”Durant’s slight build could be considered one of his few weaknesses, but he has especially improved in dealing with opponents who try to push him around.“People have been trying to do that since he’s been in the league, and obviously, he’s just gotten better every season, so I don’t really think that matters with him,” Westbrook said. “He just takes on the challenge. When people try to be physical, he takes on the challenge and becomes more aggressive.”Though Durant’s consistency stood out this season, he had several exceptional games. He scored 48 points on Jan. 4 at Minnesota, then scored 48 again two games later at Utah. He scored a career-high 54 points in a home win against Golden State on Jan. 17 and two games later scored 46 at home in a win against Portland. Two games after that, he had a triple-double — 32 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists — in a win at Philadelphia, and he followed that with 41 points in a win over Atlanta. He scored 51 points at Toronto on March 21 in a staggering 53 minutes and hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 1.7 seconds left in double overtime.He capped it off in the season finale by scoring 21 of his 42 points in the fourth quarter against Detroit and winning the game with a dunk with 16.5 seconds left. The Thunder overcame a 10-point deficit in the quarter to clinch the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference playoffs.__Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/CliffBruntAPlast_img read more
