Prisoners At Hiland Correctional Center Care For Dogs Dropped From The Iditarod

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Female inmates at Hiland Mountain Correctional Center have been caring for dogs dropped from this year’s Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. Sixty-seven mushers with their dogs began the race for Nome last Sunday, and the winner is expected to arrive early this week. The inmates provide care and housing for sled dogs dropped from the race. Dogs dropped along the race route are shipped back to Anchorage where many have been taken in at HMCC until their owners/handlers return to claim them. During the day, a crew provides care for the dogs. And another operates at night, just in case more loads of dropped dogs arrive, during the dark hours.center_img As long as anyone can remember, this has been a tradition for Iditarod dogs that are too tired or sore to keep racing.

Texas House Lawmaker Vows To Stop Feral Hog Poisoning

first_imgTEXAS PARKS AND WILDLIFE DEPARTMENTSome House lawmakers are aiming to stop the Agriculture Commissioner’s feral hog poisoning program at all costs and that includes adjusting the state’s budget so that funds cannot be used for a warfarin-based poisoning program in Texas.As heard on Texas Public RadioThis month, Ag Commissioner Sid Miller announced he was bringing a “Hog Apocalypse” to Texas with the creation of a program that would allow farmers and ranchers to use the product, Kaput Feral Hog Bait, to poison feral hogs on their property.A lawsuit that challenges Miller’s emergency rule-making has put the program on hold until the end of this month.  But Rep. Lynn Stucky, a Denton County Republican wants to take this effort a step further.   “My bill basically says we need to do more studies, more trials before we use this in our environment to kill hogs and probably other animals at the same time,” Stucky says.But Miller says federal regulators with the Environmental Protection Agency have already approved the sale of Kaput Feral Hog Bait.“I think what he is perplexed or what people are perplexed about is that there is no public information about the study, that’s their propriety information and that study met all the requirements of the EPA,” Miller says.Stucky and other House lawmakers also have added a “rider” to the House’s version of the state’s two-year budget.  It excludes Miller and his department from any state funding related to a feral hog poisoning program.“The “rider” basically takes the money that was being used for those type of activities away and does not allow it to be used for that.  And again I am a farmer and a rancher, but this is not the answer,” Stucky says.Miller says the $900,000 his department requested for the feral hog poison program is no longer needed for that effort.Copyright 2017 KSTX-FM.

Four Black Political Pioneers Pen Book of Their Lives

first_imgBy George Kevin Jordan, AFRO Staff WriterHistory has many sides. But some angles are rarely covered. This Friday, Jan. 25, Washingtonians get a rare glimpse into the interior and exterior lives of four of the most powerful African American women in politics.“For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics” (St. Martin’s Press) tracks the stories of Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry and Minyon Moore, (With Veronica Chambers) in a book that is part memoir, an ode to friendship and an insider’s tome to the political landscape over the last few decades.Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry and Minyon Moore, authors of “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics,” will be holding a book signing at Politcs and Prose in Northwest, D.C. on Friday, Jan. 25. (Twitter Photo)The authors will sign copies of their book from 7 – 8 p.m. at Politics & Prose Bookstore, 5015 Connecticut Avenue NW.According to book’s website: “The lives of Black women in American politics are remarkably absent from the shelves of bookstores and libraries. “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics” is a sweeping view of American history from the vantage points of four women who have lived and worked behind the scenes in politics for over thirty years—Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry and Minyon Moore—a group of women who call themselves the “Colored Girls.” Like many people who have spent their careers in public service, they view their lives in four-year waves where presidential campaigns and elections have been common threads. For most of the Colored Girls, their story starts with Jesse Jackson’s first campaign for president. From there, they went on to work on the presidential campaigns of Walter Mondale, Michael Dukakis, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton.”Each woman helped shaped the political system we participate in today. Brazile, was a renowned political strategist and former Interim Chair of the Democratic Party. Currently an adjunct professor at Georgetown University, she is the author of the {New York Times} bestseller “Hacks.”  Yolanda Caraway heads the Caraway Group, Inc., which is instrumental in shaping the Democratic party. Leah Daughtry served as CEO of the Democratic National Convention Committee in both 2008 and 2016. She is also a preacher, organizer and public speaker. Minyon Moore also served as CEO of the Democratic National Committee. Also under President Clinton she held several positions from assistant to the President, to director of the White House Office of Public Liaison and director of White House political affairs.Veronica Chambers, who also contributed to the book, is the editor of The New York Times archival storytelling team. She penned the memoir “Mama’s Girl” and co-wrote “Yes Chef” with Marcus Samuelsson.The book’s title was a poignant take on the theatrical piece “for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf”  by writer Ntozake Shange, one of the most celebrated pieces of work about Black women that went on to Broadway and was also turned into a motion picture.Even though the book was published in October, the journey of these four women can not be understated now when 39 of the 110 women serving in Congress are women of color. In fact, according to the database BlackWomenInPolitics.com, 468 black women ran for public office in 2018. Just this week Kamala Harris announced she was running for President.This event is free and open to the public.last_img read more

In the second half, the Cardinals forced the Blue Hens into 14 turnovers while committing only nine of their own. Louisville also out-shot the Delaware in the second half, 13-8.

Apple Wants to Expand Its Footprint in the Workplace

first_img This story originally appeared on Reuters November 11, 2014 5 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Apple Inc is embarking on its most aggressive expansion yet onto corporate turf, hiring a dedicated sales force to talk with potential clients like Citigroup Inc and working in concert with a dozen or so developers, two sources familiar with its plans say.Experts say the company hopes to offset a gradual deceleration in growth – highlighted by iPad sales that have declined three straight quarters – by expanding its footprint in the workplace.Three months after unveiling a partnership with IBM to develop apps for corporate clients and sell them on devices, the iPhone maker’s plans to challenge sector leaders Hewlett-Packard, Dell Inc, Oracle and SAP are starting to take shape.Details remain scant, but some industry experts say that the tie-up with Big Blue gives Apple an opportunity to begin to challenge Hewlett Packard’s and Dell’s dominance of office IT, and Oracle and SAP’s command of work applications. Depending on its progress, it may hamper Microsoft, Samsung’s or Google’s own efforts in the nascent market for mobile work applications.Apps developers and other sources familiar with Apple’s plans who could not speak publicly provided additional details on how the iPhone maker is working behind the scenes.The iPhone maker has worked closely with a group of startups, including ServiceMax and PlanGrid, that already specialize in selling apps to corporate America. The two people familiar with the plans, but who could not speak publicly about them, say Apple is already in talks with other mobile enterprise developers to bring them into a more formal partnership.PlanGrid is a mobile app for construction workers to share and view blueprints. ServiceMax is a mobile app that makes it easy for companies to manage fleets of field service technicians by ensuring they have access to the right information.Apple has been sending dedicated sales teams to talk to chief information officers. At least one financial services corporation, Citigroup, has been in talks to sign on, one of the two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.Another person familiar with the developer’s plans told Reuters that ServiceMax, whose existing customers include Procter & Gamble and DuPont, has co-hosted eight dinners with Apple over the past year in locations across the United States. About 25 or 30 chief information officers and “chief service officers” typically show up at these joint marketing and sales events.ServiceMax declined comment on what they were specifically working on with Apple. PlanGrid also declined comment.But ServiceMax chief marketing officer, Stacey Epstein, said about 95 percent of its customers use Apple devices. Each new customer will typically order thousands of iPhones and iPads, she added.”The field service market alone is a $15 billion market,” said Epstein. “One of our accounts may have thousands of field service technicians. It’s a huge market opportunity for Apple.”Apple declined to comment for this story.’Messy, Stupid’ Demands’Apple has mostly kept its plans under wraps since July, when it announced the deal with IBM. Their partnership has alternately been hailed as a dream alliance, or dismissed as an uncertain tie-up between two companies with very different philosophies.Many American corporations already deploy tablets among their workforces, for purposes ranging from pharmaceutical sales to mobile accounting.“From Apple’s point of view the enterprise is really messy, oftentimes unreasonable or even stupid in its demands,” said John Rymer, an analyst at Forrester. “They’ve never had a business model to deal with any of that. But they do want the penetration and they do want what market share they can get.”Its rivals harbor similar ambitions. A separate source familiar with the matter said Samsung is stepping up its efforts to sell devices to large enterprise clients. The company hired former chief information officer Robin Bienfait to spearhead that effort, and is on the hunt for acquisition opportunities, the person said. The source requested anonymity as they were involved in private conversations. Apple also needed help to penetrate corporations. It is relying on IBM’s predictive software, enterprise-grade security and data analytics to set its upcoming suite of apps apart from rival offerings from Oracle and Microsoft, the two original sources said.Personnel from IBM Global Technology Services, its outsourced IT division, will handle technical support for clients under the initiative, and the two companies also plan on setting up a dedicated 24-7 hotline, according to a recently updated Apple support website.The iPhone maker may be trying to replicate the model that served the iPhone well: hook the client on the software and content, then keep them coming back for the hardware, which is what drives the lions’ share of Apple’s bottom line.“It does make sense, but the devil’s in the details,” said Rymer at Forrester. “The apps have to work and be economic. Can they produce solutions that are meaningful to enough people and reduce the cost over the customers doing it themselves? We’ll see.”(Editing by Edwin Chan, Bernard Orr) Register Now »last_img read more
