Dayton Police Department Earns International Honor for Community Policing
The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and Cisco honored the Dayton Police Department with the 2011 Community Policing Award. The award recognizes Dayton's "Urban High School Disorder Reduction Project," a community policing initiative at Belmont High School that is credited with reducing reported incidents of crime and disorderly behavior by nearly 80 percent. The project was implemented in cooperation with Dayton Public Schools and the Montgomery County Juvenile Court and has also been recognized by Ohio Crime Prevention Association. Chief Biehl accepted the award on behalf of the Dayton Police Department at the November 16th meeting of the Dayton City Commission. Community policing—a practice used widely by Dayton Police Department—involves actively engaging the community in problem solving and crime prevention and is broadly recognized as a way to build stronger, safer communities. Dayton is the award winner among cities with a population between 100,000 and 250,000. Three American cities and one Canadian city are honorees in other population categories. The IACP, with members in more than 140 countries, developed the Community Policing Award to recognize outstanding community policing initiatives by law enforcement agencies worldwide.

http://www.youtube.com/user/StPetersburgCollege The college held a workshop on the 2011-12 college budget Friday, Feb. 25, beginning at 9 a.m. About St. Petersburg College: In 1927, St. Petersburg College (then known as St. Petersburg Junior College) became Florida's first private, non-profit, two-year school of higher learning located in downtown St. Petersburg. Full accreditation followed in 1931 and in 1948 SPC became a public college. In June 2001, SPJC officially became St. Petersburg College when Florida's governor signed legislation making it the first community college in Florida to offer four-year degrees. On Dec. 11, 2001, the college received the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' accreditation to offer courses leading to bachelor's degrees. In 2002, St. Petersburg College began offering courses leading to bachelor's degrees in Education, Nursing and Technology Management. The college's commitment to its two-year curriculum, which has earned it wide recognition and annually wins it high national rankings, remains as strong as ever. Today, SPC has eight learning sites throughout Pinellas County and recently became the first college in Florida to offer a four-year degree in Dental Hygiene. This program's offerings augment its two-year program, which has been in operation since 1963. SPC added four-year degrees in Veterinary Technology, Public Safety Administration and Orthotics and Prosthetics in 2005. College Accreditation St. Petersburg College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associates degrees and to offer courses leading to bachelor's degrees in the following areas: Banking, Nursing, Business Administration, Orthotics & Prosthetics, Elementary/Secondary Education, Paralegal Studies.

DeKalb Parents Against Cell Tower - Part I:  Cobb County Cell Phone Towers
Dear DeKalb County Board of Education: I am a long-time resident of DeKalb County, and I am writing to express my concern about recent discussion and the pending decision to place cell phone towers on school property. I understand that the decision is being considered to place 12 cell phone towers on school property to increase revenue. However, I do not believe that the benefits of installing cell phone towers on school property outweigh the liabilities. Consider: Cell Phone Towers decrease property values and increase health risks. Please view the following information before making a decision on this issue: • The Impact of Cellular Phone Base Station Towers on Property Values by Sandy Bond, PhD. • Using GIS to Measure the Impact of Distance to Cell Phone Towers on House Prices in Florida. • The Sensitivity of Children to Electromagnetic Fields by Leeka Kheifets, Michael Repacholi, Rick Saunders and Emilie van Deventer. • Why Children and Teens Should Stay Away from Cell Phones. • DeKalb County Toxic Government Secrets -- Pages 1-4 and 56-58. • World Health Organization -- International Agency for Research on Cancer: IARC Classifies Radiofrequency Electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans. • DeKalb County Board of Education: No Cell Tower & No Redistribution of Wealth. (PowerPoint presentation) • Cobb County Cell Towers on School Property. (PowerPoint presentation) T-Mobile had the opportunity to present information to the public on this issue. T-Mobile also stated they were offering $30,000 per year for each tower and a onetime payment of $25,000 to our local PTAs. This offer is very similar to the deal T-Mobile gave other school systems such as Cobb County Board of Education. During the meeting, a T-Mobile representative stated these negotiations started over one year ago. However, parents and the community have had less than one month to consider the cell phone tower proposal. Is this process fair and just? The recent announcement by the World Health Organization classifies radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans. This announcement alone would warrant a more detailed investigation into the approval of placing cell phone towers on school property. Do we want to risk the lives of our children? Are these tradeoffs that we really want to make? Sincerely, Viola Davis

UK Center for Applied Energy Research algae press conference
Beshear Administration to Announce Funding for UK to Demonstrate Carbon Capture Technology Using Algae. UK President Eli Capilouto, Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) director Rodney Andrews, Kentucky Energy and Environment Secretary Len Peters, Kentucky House Majority Leader Rocky Adkins, East Kentucky Power Cooperative (EKPC) CEO Tony Campbell and others. To announce a partnership with UK and East Kentucky Power Cooperative's Dale power station in Winchester, Ky. to demonstrate CAER and the UK Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering's process of using algae to capture CO2 and convert it to biomass from coal-burning power plants. This breakthrough carbon-capture technology is being funded by $1.3 million from the Kentucky Energy and Environment cabinet, $543,633 from UK and $75,000 of in-kind costs from the EKPC to demonstrate the process at EKPC for the next two years. The smaller-scale project began in a commercial-scale greenhouse at CAER and has been refined for the last three years. Researchers are looking at the potential of using waste CO2 and heat from a coal-fired power plant to cultivate algae, which can then be processed into value-added products like biodiesel, animal feed, fertilizer, and chemicals.

Auburn Coach Wife Kristi Malzahn Agrees with Match & eHarmony: Men are Jerks
My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)
