Montgomery County 7th - 12th graders give their thoughts about the manufacturing industry as a career direction. Montgomery County manufacturing employees tell it like it really is - and that is an exciting, well-paying, stable, viable career option. That's why Manufacturing Works in Montgomery County North Carolina. Many thanks to the folks at Jordan Lumber and Unilin for allowing us to "invade" their workplaces. This video was produced by Sarah Martin Photography.

Part 4 Smith Cell Tower Hearing 3-15-2016. The hearings examiner should be neutral and so should the county, but this examiner works for Long Range Planning which is planning "Sustainable Thurston and Title 26 and next will be septic system taxes and meters on water wells. I don't call that neutral. It boiled down to whether or not birds will collide with the tower. They don't care about human's sensitivity to EMF frequency!

Last fall, the Council of the District of Columbia voted in support of Mayor Muriel Bowser’s plan to close DC General and replace it with small, safe and dignified short-term housing facilities across the District. This morning, Mayor Bowser detailed the next stages of her plan as well as the sites for new short-term family housing facilities in all 8 wards. “In a city as prosperous as ours, there is no reason we should keep families at DC General. The building is too big, too old and too far removed from the services that get families back on their feet,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser. “When I ran for Mayor, I heard loud and clear from our residents across our city that our city can - and must - do better. I have been working with the Council on a plan that will create small, short-term family housing. These facilities will be modern, safe and dignified – and will bring us one big step closer to our goal of ending homelessness in the District of Columbia.” The District’s Department of General Services (DGS) conducted a months-long search to identify suitable sites for the new short-term family housing. DGS looked for spaces that could collectively serve the same number of residents at DC General, with access to services and public transportation. The locations include a mix of District-owned properties, as well as newly purchased or leased private property. They are: • 2105-2107 10th Street, NW (Ward 1) • 2619 Wisconsin Ave, NW (Ward 3) • 5505 Fifth Street, NW (Ward 4) • 2266 25th Place, NE (Ward 5) • 700 Delaware Ave, SW (Ward 6) • 5004 D Street, SE (Ward 7) • 6th Street & Chesapeake Street, SE (Ward 8) On Wednesday, the Mayor will cut the ribbon on a brand new women’s shelter in Ward 2, at 810 5th Street, NW. The innovative facility will accommodate up to 213 women and will replace two outdated facilities at 2nd and D streets, NW. “When our most vulnerable experience homelessness, we all suffer,” continued Mayor Bowser. “That is why we focused on an all-8-Wards solution. By opening up dignified, safe and effective facilities across the city, we all get to play a role in lifting our neighbors out of homelessness – and helping them get back to a place they can call home.” Each short-term family housing site will accommodate up to 50 families. Unlike DC General, these facilities will have places for children of all ages to play and do homework. They will also include the kind of services and programming that helps families exit shelter and move to permanent housing as soon as possible. In addition to providing safe and dignified short-term housing, Mayor Bowser is committing to making continued investments in the solutions that work to end homelessness—affordable housing, permanent supportive housing and rapid rehousing. This week, the Administration will submit to the Council a package detailing the sites for their approval. The buildings for the short-term family housing will need to be renovated or built from the ground up. The new sites will begin to open and serve families starting in 2017. The short-term housing for families will be some of the most dignified and innovative in the country. Once they are all in place, the District will close the DC General Family Shelter.

MATH, BUSINESS, AND COMPUTING CENTER The first building in a multi-phase building plan that includes a new student union, planetarium and recycling center was dedicated on Oct. 13, 2015. A ribbon cutting was planned for Orange Coast College’s newest state-of-the-art building, the Mathematics, Business and Computing Center. Construction was completed on the MBCC in mid-August 2015, and the building opened to students on the first day of OCC’s fall semester. The 90,000-square-foot interdisciplinary complex includes 10 computer labs, three lecture halls and 30 faculty offices. “The MBCC building sets the standard for OCC in new technology, with more than 700 computer stations throughout the building and the introduction of a virtual desktop infrastructure,” said OCC President Dennis Harkins. “Congratulations to our team of faculty, staff, students, architects and contractors who worked together to complete this state-of-the-art facility on time and on budget. And, as always, thank you to the community for their continued support of Orange Coast College through Measure M.” The MBCC was built using money from Measure M, a $698 million bond that was passed by voters in 2012. ————————————————————————— ORANGE COAST COLLEGE Orange Coast College's 164-acre campus is located in Costa Mesa just minutes from Southern California’s beautiful beaches.

www.EyeRideOnline.com 888-668-6698 Video Transcript: Hey Everyone! I'm Steve with EyeRide Tech Support and today will be a quick video on how to install your new EYENET Mobile WiFi solution. This is the unit and now lets get right to the unboxing. As soon as you open the box you will see your instruction pamphlet, DC pigtail power connector, ethernet cable, celluar 4G LTE antennas and dual WiFi antennas, optional GPS antenna, and lastly the router itself. At this point you would want to find a good location to mount your router. These routers are signal boosting so any place would be great as long as it is easily accesible and safe. On the back will be noted your static public IP address as well as other identifiying info like mac address and serial number. Here is the micro USB port as well as the USB port. On the rear we have our WAN port as well as four LAN ports. Also as a word of caution, do not press the router reset button unless instructed by an EyeRide Technician. Here is the router. Here are your antenna connectors. Please be mindful of the connector itself because the antennas are different. We have male to female for the 4G LTE cellular antenna and female to male for the 2.4ghz WiFi antennas. Once you have decided your installation location, you will need to get power to your unit. Using the supplied DC connector, you will run 12V DC power. We suggest using a 5 amp fusing line. You would connect to either constant power or ignition power, depending on your operating needs. Also make sure you have a reliable grounding source. Once you have powered on your eyenet, please wait a few moments while the booting process finishes. It has finished when you have a blinking internet and wifi LED. Then you are ready to connect to your router. On your wireless enabled device, look for the eyenet's SSID. This may be a default name chosen by our tech team or set before shipping as requested. This name can be changed at any time so do not fret. Once you choose your EYENET'S SSID, you will connect to the router and see a custom splash page with your company's name or logo. Please read the terms and conditions and hit accept. This is also an important step because if you do not accept the terms and conditions, you will not be able to access the internet. Simply click to accept and your device will automatically connect to the internet. Thats it! That concludes our quick installation video. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact technical support through email at email@example.com or you can reach our support line at 954-775-1210

Randal O’Toole joins us for a discussion on land usage, urban planning, public transit, transportation, and driverless cars. Henry Ford’s mass production of the automobile ushered in a new era of human mobility, one that public planners always seem to be attempting to steer the American public away from. How is transportation important to human freedom and flourishing? How much are we spending on public transit? When, if ever, does public transportation make sense? What will driverless cars do for traffic congestion? Are driverless cars going to cause people to drive more? Less? Are there any potential roadblocks to driverless cars?

Case studies featured buildings—both in urban and in rural areas—that are improving public health and driving economic growth, while protecting and serving their communities and neighborhoods even during emergencies. This briefing featured a retrofit project in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn in New York City and a net-zero energy high school in rural Kentucky, as well as projects incorporating sustainability principles in Prince George's County, Maryland. After being devastated by Hurricane Sandy and left without power for days, the historic Red Hook Recreation Center was transformed into a community space and safe refuge with the installation of a solar power and battery system. For vocational students near Lexington, Kentucky, the Locust Trace AgriScience Center embodies the principles of sustainability. With daylit classrooms and low-impact land development, the buildings and campus provide hands-on learning of new skills for today’s jobs with minimal energy/water use and low carbon emissions. The Redevelopment Authority (RDA) of Prince George's County, MD, is developing mixed-income/mixed-use projects and affordable housing in urban communities near transit centers using sustainability principles that promote walkability, green design, and energy and water efficiency. This was the third in a series of EESI briefings examining environmental justice as it relates to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s Clean Power Plan (CPP), the nation's first-ever regulation limiting carbon pollution from power plants. States are being encouraged by EPA's Clean Power Plan to reduce energy demand as a way to cut carbon pollution. Though the Plan's implementation has been temporarily suspended by the Supreme Court, at least 22 states have voluntarily decided to press ahead. The CPP rewards states that implement energy efficiency projects in low-income communities through the Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP). Building and retrofitting schools, community centers, affordable housing and other buildings to be energy efficient, self-sufficient, safe and healthful can make communities more resilient to extreme weather, economic downturns and other hardships—while also being key strategies for Clean Power Plan compliance.

John Paulson for City Council 2016! Running for the City Council has been an incredible personal experience for me. It has left a deeper appreciation for the impact our City government and City Council members have in how great our community is and even greater it can become. Like you, I truly enjoy living in Sioux Falls and am grateful for the projects and activities which unite us toward the common goal of keeping Sioux Falls a great place to live, go to school, work, and raise a family. I am a native and long time resident of Sioux Falls as is my wife Jane. We have a daughter, Emily. I am a graduate of Augustana University and have 40 years of experience in health care administration, the last 30 with Sanford Health. I am a active civic volunteer and been a youth sports coach. My community leadership includes service with Sioux Falls Tomorrow Planning Program, United Way, Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Forward Washington High School Bond Election and Washington Pavilion. I believe the combination of my experience as a business and community leader is good preparation for serving on the City Council. I am familiar with complex organizations such as health systems and cities are. I understand boards and governance and the legislative role of the City Council and its responsibility for the vision, policy and finances of our City. I entered the race for the At Large City Council position in the April 12, 2016 election because I love Sioux Falls and believe a positive approach to City government and working together to make good things happen is best for our community. I want to share my administrative and community leadership experience in such accomplishments and be involved in the important decisions made be the City Council about the future of Sioux Falls. A key focus of mine would be - cooperative efforts - along with strategic planning and an emphasis on citywide development. Here’s my priority list involving the principles and systems which serve Sioux Falls citizens well, with an eye on what we will need in the future: - well planned growth and development - inter-governmental coopération - public-private partnerships - infrastructure maintenance and development involving vital public services - transportation management and traffic safety - work force and education opportunities and support to community wide efforts to attract new employees - the Sioux Falls “tradition” of respect and hospitality - strong neighborhoods with citywide amenities and affordable housing - maximum service levels and efficiencies to ensure taxpayer value - an informed and involved community Here are my beliefs about Sioux Falls and what will position us for success in the future: The growth of Sioux Falls increases the need for collaborative strategic planning. We must continue to develop public facilities on an ongoing basis including parks and recreational venues and maintain infrastructure involving streets and water treatment and provide an ongoing emphasis on public safety and crime prevention. This will ensure a quality of life that is consistently high in every part of our city with a particular focus on continued downtown development and revitalizing the inner ring neighborhoods. Our vision for the future must achieve the Sioux Falls we want to be and what will it take to get there. We work best when city residents are involved in addressing civic needs and pursuing future development plans. There are unique opportunities for the community to prosper and achieve solutions using our public-private partnership models. We must roll our sleeves up together with government colleagues in the counties, school districts, towns and State Legislature, along with other community players to provide the most efficient and effective services. In this way, we also strengthen our role as a regional center for retail, education, healthcare, research and technology, financial services, manufacturing, entertainment and recreation to keep us moving forward as a Greater Sioux Falls!
