Earn a degree from the University of Florida in Apopka?

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reggie Connell Mama Mia I just finished sitting through 3 hours of the Democratic debate, and sipping about a pint of rum. The cutest thing was, I sat my laptop on my love seat, and turned the lights out, and had it on when the debate started, and Prince Giorgio went over to the front of the love seat, and raised up on his hind legs watching intently when Elizabeth Warren came on, and in his normally friendly self, he offered her his paw, and started whining, wanting her to talk to him, and pay him some attention! He really thought she was right there and real, and would tell him how cute and special, and what a treasure he is! Yes, that is the candidate who Prince Giorgio likes the best……..what a great opportunity for free college and forgiveness of college debts with Elizabeth, if she is elected president, plus she would clamp down on corporate monopoly, greed, and getting away with paying no taxes.

October 15, 2019 at 11:41 pm Mama Mia Reply center_img Students have multiple pathways to higher education by transferring with an AA degreeBy Angela Colonna/UF College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Central Florida is home to Orlando and its world-renowned theme parks. One of the fastest-growing urban centers in the U.S., the city is a short drive from some of the state’s beautiful beaches. But there’s more to central Florida than tourist attractions: you can earn a University of Florida degree here. As an academic adviser for the UF College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS), part of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS), I meet many Orlando-area state and community college students. These students think the only way to be admitted to UF is as a traditional freshman, right out of high school. However, these bright, prospective UF students don’t realize there is another window that has been open all along: to transfer into the university with their associate of arts (AA) degree.In addition to options for transferring to the Gainesville campus, an AA degree can also be used to transfer into a UF/IFAS CALS major at Apopka or online, so students can pursue a university degree while staying in their hometown for work or family reasons. “When I graduated high school, moving to Gainesville was not an option for me,” said Betty Morris, a UF/IFAS CALS geomatics student in Apopka. “Having the ability to take my classes online and work at the same time helps my dream of getting a UF degree finally come true.”In central Florida, UF/IFAS CALS offers two undergraduate degrees, plant science and geomatics at the UF/IFAS Mid-Florida Research and Education Center (MREC) in Apopka. Located just west of Orlando, MREC supports students with lab and field resources, teaching greenhouses, computers, and classrooms. Students work directly with on-site teaching faculty. Each of these degree programs has online lectures and coursework with in-person labs to gain hands-on experience.The plant science major focuses on the art and science of growing plants and understanding their natural properties. Students in the geomatics major learn how to collect and utilize geospatial data for surveying and land mapping, and prepares students for state licensure.“In elementary school, I knew I loved working with plants,” said Kevin Dewansingh, a UF/IFAS CALS plant science student in Apopka. “It wasn’t until college I realized I can make this interest a career.”From October 21-25, the nation celebrates Transfer Student Week. About half of the students who start at a two-year institution transfer into a four-year institution to complete their degree, according to the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center.UF/IFAS CALS undergraduate students located in Apopka, are all AA transfer students. Some are mid-career professionals who chose to return to school later in life while they continue to work. Other students are unable to move to the UF main campus due to financial or personal reasons but still want to join the Gator Nation. To become a UF/IFAS CALS student, all you need are the following: An Associate of Arts (AA) degreeMeet the UF foreign language requirementHave at least a 2.0 GPA at all higher education institutions attendedHave the required GPA for the major you would like to pursueComplete prerequisite courses for your major of interest found in the CALS transfer guide to majors: UF/IFAS CALS wants to help guide state and community college students to the university to achieve their dream careers. The best resource is to connect with the academic adviser in the degree program you wish to pursue to be sure all prerequisites and deadlines are met. If you are interested in a plant science or geomatics major, you can connect with me, the academic adviser for UF/IFAS CALS in Apopka, at [email protected] or call 407-410-6946. Angela Colonna is an academic adviser for the UF/IFAS College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. She is located at the UF/IFAS Mid-Florida Research and Education Center in Apopka, Florida.The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) administers the degree programs of the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS). The mission of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences is to deliver unsurpassed educational programs that prepare students to address the world’s critical challenges related to agriculture, food systems, human wellbeing, natural resources, and sustainable communities. The college has received more total (national and regional combined) USDA teaching awards than any other institution. Visit the CALS website at, and follow CALS on social media platforms at @ufcals.

Andrew Hore cited for off the ball stiffarm on Bradley Davies

first_imgMonday Nov 26, 2012 Andrew Hore cited for off the ball stiffarm on Bradley Davies All Black hooker Andrew Hore has been cited for the attack that knocked out Bradley Davies and put the Welsh lock in hospital for further assesment. New Zealand won the game 33-10 but perhaps should have played it with just fourteen on the park. Hore’s swinging arm on Davies happened just 30 seconds into the Millennium Stadium Test match, but wasn’t spotted by referee Craig Joubert and his assistants, Greg Garner and Jerome Garces.At this stage in Test rugby, the Television Match Official isn’t allowed to be used for foul play incidents, so Hore was free to play on. If the TMO was called upon, you’d think that New Zealand would have been one player down for 79 minutes of the match.“Bradley has gone down in a heap. The unfortunate thing for us is they’re going to admit him to hospital. He’s a bit like 10-second Bob at the moment. He doesn’t quite know where he’s at. Fingers crossed he recovers but he was a big loss for us, particularly early on,” Warren Gatland reacted.“From the initial look at the video, Bradley’s been hit from behind and he’s gone down. Whether it’s a swinging arm… you don’t usually associate the All Blacks as a side that resorts to cheap shots. I hope that’s not the case. I hope it’s just an accident.”Hore is likely to receive a big suspension, particularly in the wake of Adam Thomson receiving a one week suspension for a boot on the head, which was seen as lenient by a lot of rugby fans.The minimum entry point for striking is two weeks, five for mid range, and eight plus for more severe. With the All Blacks facing England next, chances are Hore won’t be taking part.The 34 year-old will face a disciplinary hearing of which the date is yet to be made public.Davies has been ruled out of Wales’ next match against Australia after suffeing severe concussion.– Do you think the result would have been different if Hore had been red carded?– How lengthy a ban do you think he should get?– Should Davies have been penalised for obstructive running?UPDATE: Hore has been suspended for 5 weeks.  Credit: BBC and Scrum VADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Military censors close Rangoon-based weekly for good

first_imgNews RSF_en to go further Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar MyanmarAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association condemn the indefinite closure of the Rangoon-based weekly Phoenix by the military government’s censorship board on 21 August. The weekly is edited by Mar-J, a writer who has been subject to bans in the past for his satirical comments.“This ban is a sad example of the censorship to which Burma’s privately-owned media are constantly exposed,” the two organisations said. “The publication of critical articles is not grounds for such a ban. Phoenix must be allowed to resume publishing without delay.”Last November, Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association released the text of a directive which the censorship board had sent to the news media spelling out the circumstances in which they could be suspended or closed down for good.The authorities have not given any specific reason for Phoenix’s closure. Mizzima, a Burmese exile news website, quoted a censorship board official as simply saying: “The weekly has been banned from publishing.”A one-issue ban was previously imposed on Phoenix on 28 May. Mizzima reported four days later that the weekly had been punished for defying the censorship board’s orders to publish only entertainment articles. Phoenix’s editors said the orders had come too late.Part of the motive for the permanent ban appears to be a desire to settle old scores with Mar-J, who is also a former Major in the Burmese Air Force. But after publishing satirical articles about the military junta, he was removed from his post.

The new law aroused fears among online freedom advocates of more power for the police. Putin’s political opponents feared it would be used to target minority parties, which could be prosecuted and their websites shut down if they were accused by the authorities of encouraging or supporting extremism on the Internet.”Russia does have extremists and nationalists, but their eradication is not this law’s real purpose,” said Sergei Kovalyov, a Union of Right Forces (SPS) member of the Duma. “It allows online activity to be banned for no good reason.” He was also concerned about the law’s provision to allow punishment to be based on criminal legislation.But the heaviest criticism was of the 11 categories of extremist activity, which drew on laws against terrorism, attempts to overthrow the government and inciting people to riot or racial hatred. The law also banned any activity or publication threatening the country’s “security.” Freedom of expression and human rights campaigners say this too-broad definition of extremism will threaten perfectly legitimate activity, such a websites that oppose the war in Chechnya.The information ministry threatened in late October 2002 to shut down the website of the radio station Ekho Moskvy for broadcasting an interview with Chechen guerrillas holding several hundred people hostage in a Moscow theatre. The mass kidnapping gave the government a chance to propose an anti-terrorist law that allows the authorities to prosecute any journalist reporting on matters related to terrorism or the war in Chechnya. At the last minute, Putin vetoed the bill and asked parliament to revise it.Access to Chechen news sites is systematically blocked. They included, cut off by the FSB (ex-KGB) on 5 November 2002. In early December, Dmitri Chepchugov, head of the interior ministry’s anti-cybercrime department, said all websites connected with Chechen rebels had been identified and that an undisclosed number had been shut down. Even though they were based abroad, foreign ISPs had barred access to them. Among them was kavkaztsenter site, based in Estonia, cut off in late April 2003 after pressure from the Russian authorities.

Limerick baker boys head to UK

first_imgEmail Print NewsLocal NewsLimerick baker boys head to UKBy admin – March 30, 2011 454 Twitter Advertisement Facebookcenter_img Linkedin WhatsApp A GROUP of bakers from Limerick Youth Service will travel to Stoke-on-Trent in June for the Alliance for Bakery Students and Trainees (ABST) annual conference. Paul O’Brien is an instructor for the bakery project at the LYS community training centre. The event gives students an opportunity to see what the standard is like across the water. “A small group travelled last year and had an excellent experience. It gave them a chance to see what the standard of baking was like in England.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Some of the lads got great ideas for projects that they worked on when they came home”.Paul established a Bakery Society for participants in the course two years ago so they could improve their skills outside of their training hours.“The bakery courses provide certified training in both craft and commercial baking to prepare learners for a career in catering, but the society is more fun.“We get the group in to experiment with their baking.“We have a large group and meet every Thursday for three hours at the training centre”.The society has been fundraising for their trip.It is planned to take part in some of the Stoke competitions.Added Paul: “Last year the standard was incredible. I think some of the lads are keen to compete”.However, it will not be all about the baking.“The conference will be held at the Alton Towers Theme Park, so we will have plenty of fun”.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Second-half scoring run proves costly for Falcons

first_img Twitter Twitter Pinterest COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Second-half scoring run proves costly for Falcons Facebook Pinterest Previous articleVucevic has triple-double, Magic rally to beat WarriorsNext articleNiederreiter, Hurricanes pull away to beat Blackhawks 5-3 Digital AIM Web Support Facebookcenter_img TAGS  WhatsApp SportsCollegeLocal News WhatsApp What started off as a close battle escalated into a one-sided game quickly for the UTPB basketball team against No. 9 Lubbock Christian.Unfortunately for the Falcons, it did not swing in their favor as a second-half run proved to be the difference as the Chaparrals pulled away for a 93-58 victory in Lone Star Conference play Friday at the Falcon Dome.UTPB (8-8 overall, 7-8 Lone Star Conference) trailed 39-32 after the first 20 minutes before Lubbock Christian seized control of the game over the span of eight minutes with a 32-7 run.Trevion Lamar led the Falcons with 11 points while Jay Workman added nine but it was not enough to keep pace with Lubbock Christian’s torrid shooting pace. The Chaparrals shot 61.3 percent from the field in the second half, including going 11 of 16 from 3-point range.  “It was a multitude of things,” UTPB head coach Josh Newman said. “You look at the first half and it’s a five-point game at one point and I didn’t think we played exceptionally well to be honest. But you come out at halftime and unfortunately there’s two guys who aren’t on the floor anymore and it’s hard to deal with from an emotional and physical standpoint.”Newman was referring to guards Zack Selvage and Jordan Horn, who both suffered sprained ankles in the first half.  The duo had eight points each before being limited in the second half. Luka Juricki also was dealing with a bad ankle as well to make things even more difficult for UTPB.The Falcons did get off to a good start by scoring the first six points. That was before the Chaparrals answered with a 12-2 run of their own to take the lead they would not relinquish.Lubbock Christian (15-0, 13-0) pushed the lead to as much as 11 points at 24-13 with a 3-pointer from Parker Hicks, who led the team with a game-high 21 points and was one of five Chaparrals to finish in double figures.UTPB kept pace into the second half before Lubbock Christian’s Jalen Brattain started the scoring flurry with a 3-pointer with 14:21 left in the second half to make it 50-42.The Chaps kept the barrage going, making 9-of-10 3-pointers as part of the run. Brattain finished with 16 points and Aamer Muhammad had 19 as the two combined to make nine of LCU’s 14 3-pointers in the game.Lloyd Daniels and Rowan McKenzie each had 11 points for the Chaparrals.“I thought we showed a lot of resolve,” Lubbock Christian head coach Todd Duncan said. “I know UTPB is playing with some men down and they’re making it hard on us. I just told our guys to stick with it and then they started making some shots.”The series wraps up Sunday with a rematch in Lubbock.>> Follow Tony Venegas on Twitter at @OA_TVenegas By Digital AIM Web Support – February 19, 2021 last_img read more
