first_img TAGSalbio siresbob menendezcory bookerdonald payneHUDhudson county housing SHARE Hudson County receives $2.4M grant to reduce lead hazards in housing facilities Bayonne Federal lawmakers announced that Hudson County has received a $2.4 million grant from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to reduce lead hazards in low-income housing facilities. By John Heinis/Hudson County View“We need to do everything we can to protect New Jersey children and families from the dangers of lead exposure in the home,” said U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ).“This federal funding is critical to enhancing efforts in Hudson County to reduce lead hazards for low-income families, making homes safer for children. I will continue to fight for additional resources to protect the health and safety of New Jerseyans.”The senior Senator sent a letter to HUD in support of Hudson County’s application for this funding.Specifically, the $2,424,097.08 grant is to reduce lead hazards in privately owned low-income housing and protect children and families from the health risks associated with exposure to high levels of lead.“Dangerous levels of lead in homes threaten the health and safety of families across our country, particularly in some of our most underserved communities,” added U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ).“We already know the potential health impacts of lead poisoning can be devastating to a child, so we have an obligation to secure the resources needed to address these hazards. This federal investment will help Hudson County mitigate the threat of lead exposure in homes and protect New Jersey families.”Lead paint in housing presents one of the largest threats to the health, safety, and future productivity of America’s children, according to The Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes (OLHCHH).Their Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration (LHRD) grant program is focused, in accordance with the annual HUD Appropriations Acts, on jurisdictions with higher numbers of pre-1940 rental housing and higher rates of childhood lead poisoning cases.Hudson County was awarded $2,024,097.08 million from the Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration grant program and $400,000 in Healthy Homes Supplemental funding in order to address lead hazards in 150 low-income housing units.Additionally, the Healthy Homes Supplemental funding allows awardees the ability to more holistically address housing to protect residents’ health and safety. Grantees can use Lead Hazard Control funds to remove the lead paint in a residence.“I am pleased that Hudson County has been awarded $2.4 million to help communities identify and eliminate lead-based hazards in low-income houses and create safe homes for residents,” stated U.S. Rep. Albio Sires (D-8).“Regardless of the source—paint or water—lead is toxic, especially for young children. That’s why I introduced legislation to increase testing for lead in school drinking water, and why I’m so pleased that Hudson County has been awarded this funding to eliminate lead in the homes of low-income residents,” said U.S. Rep. Donald Payne, Jr. (D-10).“Not only that, but the additional funding awarded will allow for a more comprehensive approach to addressing other unsafe and unhealthy conditions in those homes. I will continue to work with our congressional delegation to ensure that New Jersey receives the resources necessary to improve public health and the overall well-being of our communities.” Previous articleJCEA pres. fuming after new school funding formula costs Jersey City $8.5MNext articleAssemblyman Gusciora endorses Councilman DeFusco for Hoboken mayor John Heinis Bayonne man pepper sprayed, arrested after punching cop in the face, authorities say By John Heinis – July 5, 2017 11:39 am 0 Crime CarePoint Health reaches deal for Cigna Health Insurance to join their network BayonneHobokenJersey CityNorth Bergen/GuttenbergSecaucusUnion CityWest HudsonWest New York Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Bayonne Police: 45-year-old man arrested for attempting to have sex with 15-year-old girl in Secaucus Facebook Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

Boss gives it his best shot

first_imgPattaya Golf Society at The LinksMonday, June 13 Mountain Shadow StablefordOn Monday, 13th June, the Pattaya Golf Society visited Mountain Shadow to play a Stableford competition from the blue tees. The recent rains have done the job at the course and fairways are now well covered and the greens are in good condition. There may be some small patches of worn turf off the fairways but off fairway destinations are not the places to be at the course.There was only one other four ball on the course for the whole morning so progress was excellent.In second place was Murray Edwards with 29 points in his penultimate round this trip and the winner’s place went to Mr Len with 34 points, which should have been better had he not four-putted two consecutive holes.No booby prize was awarded as all players had put in “good shift” and with an empty course millionaires’ golf had been the order of the day. All Square at Soggy EmeraldFriday, June 17 Emerald-StablefordOn Friday, 17th June the Pattaya Golf Society visited an empty Emerald golf club to play a Stableford competition on the rapidly improving course, after a few weeks of regular rain. Fairways are well grassed and the greens in a week or so will be excellent after some recent repairs.The moderately sized group found scoring tough as they followed a Gallic social four ball intent of playing like “escargots”, meaning that five hours on a humid course punctuated by a heavy storm would guarantee nothing more than moderate scoring.Sharing the win on 30 points were Toby Glass and Mike Davies, with Mike Wilsher coming in third with 29 points. Toby also recorded the only birdie two with a fine, if speedy effort on the short fifteenth.The week finished in the usual way with beers at The Links back in Soi Buakhao and another week of tough golf on excellent courses was anticipated.last_img read more

Dreams are made in America

first_imgArryn Siposs was still in his early 20s when he was delisted by St Kilda, and now he’s about to start a whole new chapter of his professional sporting career – with the Detroit Lions in the NFL.In 2015, the Hallam and Beaconsfield product had played 28 games since making his AFL debut in 2011, and the last thing he wanted to do was give up on his dream of forging a lasting professional football career.Little did the former Dandenong Stingray know the opportunities that would await him in a different football code entirely.Long known for his booming kick, Siposs now has the chance of a lifetime in the NFL after an eye-catching punting stint at US collegiate powerhouse, the Auburn Tigers.He made international headlines last November after a stunning play in the ‘Iron Bowl’ against Alabama, which netted the Tigers a stunning 48-45 win – one of the most famous triumphs in the history of their illustrious program.Siposs, who was still in Auburn as the NFL draft was held, explained the incredible turn of events that led to him and Tigers quarterback Bo Nix embracing in the middle of the stadium following the heart-stopping win.“It was something we practiced going into the game,” he said.“Alabama had a really good punt and kick-off returner so we had to come up with a plan to keep him off the field.“Our plan originally was for me to line up in the wide receiver position and then swap with the quarterback (Nix) and then get the ball snapped to me and I would punt it.“We hoped that Alabama’s defence would be on the field and their returner wouldn’t be. In the end, we confused them and they had 12 players on the field, which resulted in us keeping the football and winning the game.”It also led to a famous post-match outburst from Nick Saban – one of the biggest name coaches in US football history – and caused headlines right across the world.It’s a far cry from Siposs’ VFL stint with Williamstown when he was searching for a way back into the AFL.“After my time was finished at St Kilda, I still thought I could play in the AFL,” he said.“I was 22 at the time and wanted to get back into the AFL, so I signed with Williamstown. I thought this would give me the best opportunity to get back in.“I was in my second year there but I saw how well other guys were going (punting) in the college system in America and thought I could do the same thing, so I contacted (Australian former NFL punter) Nathan Chapman at Prokick and went down for a training session. He told me I could do it, and maybe even get to the NFL.”Siposs ultimately declared for this year’s draft still with a season of eligibility left at Auburn. While he ultimately went undrafted, his decision reaped serious rewards as he signed with the Lions soon after – with a chance to compete for their starting punting spot.For him, the time to make his new dream a reality is now.“I didn’t expect this to happen in my wildest dreams,” Siposs admitted.“It has been an amazing journey so far and it really is just the beginning of it.“I just wanted to play AFL for 10 to 12 years and have a great career doing that, but that didn’t work out, so having the opportunity to do this is amazing and hopefully I can have decent career in the NFL.”Siposs in action against LSU at Auburn University, Alabama.Pictures: COURTESY OF TODD VAN EMST/AU ATHLETICSAfter playing in front of sparse crowds for St Kilda against the likes of the Gold Coast in the cavernous Marvel Stadium during his AFL days, and then getting back to a real community footy feel at the VFL, Siposs has regularly stepped on to the field in front of more than 90,000 people so far in his US football odyssey.“It has been an awesome experience to be able to do that,” he said.“I am very lucky to be able to go out each and every week and play in front 90,000. It is something I will never forget.”But when Siposs first introduced himself at Prokick, he knew next to nothing about college football and everything it entails.“I didn’t really know much about college football if I’m honest, but Chappy said I had the capabilities of playing at a top 10 school,” Siposs explained.“I had been training for a few months at Prokick and Chappy had been speaking to Auburn because they were in need of a punter.”From there, Siposs sent footage of himself in action to the coaches at Auburn, which led to a scholarship offer and the start of a whole new chapter.“Participating in the biggest rivalry in college football is something I will never forget,” he said of the Iron Bowl.“The rivalry is real – these teams hate each other – and it’s a huge occasion if you win that game. The 2019 game was incredible, it is honestly the best game I have played in and something I will never forget. “Siposs paid tribute to his Auburn team mates and everything he learnt from them in his time with the Tigers, and also spoke about just how much of an impact Chapman has had on his new career to this point.“He’s been the biggest influence on my punting career so far,” Siposs said.“He knows his stuff and he will always be the guy I turn to for advice to improve my game.”And Siposs has also been in contact with a number of other Australian punters – some hopeful of making it to the NFL, and others already on the biggest stage – to sound out their advice.“I speak to a few guys including (Bunyip product and former Gippsland Power player) Dane Roy to see how they are all going at their college, and since declaring for the draft I’ve reached out to Michael Dickson (the Seattle Seahawks’ Aussie punter), Mitch Wishnowsky (San Francisco 49ers), Jordan Berry (Pittsburgh Steelers) and Cameron Johnston (Philadelphia Eagles) just for some advice on what the process is like, and what to expect.“This has helped me out so much, and I feel prepared for what comes next.”And what comes next will be Siposs’ most exciting chapter of all. He knows the pressure of executing in big moments in front of monster crowds – now he wants the chance to show how he can shine on the biggest stage of them all.

Mayo footballers bid to end losing streak against Galway

first_imgThe extraordinary ebb and flow of provincial superiority between old rivals Galway and Mayo goes back well over a century. In terms of Connacht championship titles, Galway have regained the edge on the roll of honour table 47-46 after beating Mayo for the last 3 years. The first of those wins (2016) stoppped Mayo in their efforts at an historic 6 in a row of Connacht titles. Perhaps Galway manager Kevin Walsh had the Indian sign over then Mayo manager Stephen Rochford, winning all 5 of their head to head meetings, but you could probably say the same thing about James Horan when he was first in charge of Mayo from 2010 to 2014. Horan has never lost to Galway as manager in 3 championship and 1 national league meeting, but that record will be on the line in Tuam Stadium next Sunday (1.30pm) when the sides clash in the semi final of the FBD League. After beating Mayo in both the national league and championship in 2008, Galway would have to wait 8 years for their next win over the ‘old enemy’ and when it arrived in surprising fashion in the 2016 Connacht semi final, it sparked a complete turn in fortunes with the Tribesmen now having won the last 5 meetings. Can James Horan resume where he left off with his 100% record intact, or will Kevin Walsh make it six wins on the bounce against Mayo? Something has to give next Sunday. Is it not time we had a draw? I wonder have Galway been practising their penalties since last weekend….

That last happened in 2010, when a flurry of late points helped Mayo to a 0-12 to 0-9 victory and the sides would not meet again until last year when the 5 Connacht counties played each other in a new round robin format and Galway were to edge out Mayo by a point, despite finishing the game with only 12 players.last_img read more

Exclusive: First Look at Clever Tools Groupware Suite

first_imgClever Tools is a new online project management and extranet application suite that is aiming for a Q1 2008 launch (and a beta of at least a few of the apps in the suite in October of this year). The full Clever Tools suite will include a project management application (that includes message boards, task management, and file sharing), an invoicing app, timesheets, a CRM application, bug tracking, and a whiteboard.For now, the Clever Tools team has only completed significant work on the project management tool, which I am told is mostly done, and the timesheet tool. Clever Tools founder Jason Jennings told me that he is aiming to have the PM and timesheet tools in “beta condition” by October. I was given a demo of those two tools and a sneak peak at some of the things on the docket for the suite yesterday.Project ManagementThe project management application is in the most complete state and consists of three main parts: discussions, files, and tasks/milestones. Clever Tools won’t be able to avoid comparisons with Basecamp, which as I said in my 10 Must Have Online Office Apps post is the “top dog” among hosted groupware tools. It’s probably important to note that I looked at Clever Tools through mostly Basecamp colored glasses (as it is the tool I use most). 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Unlike its competitors, which generally use a blog-style call and response layout for discussions — most likely in emulation of Basecamp, Clever Tools uses a more traditional inline, flat forum style for laying out messages and posts. As someone who is a big fan of traditional forums (I’ve been a moderator on a 3 million post vBulletin forum for a few years and have grown very comfortable with that style), the layout employed by Clever Tools is a welcome change.File management is one of Clever Tools’ strongest points. Files can be uploaded 20 at a time from the upload page (5 at a time from any other page). Once files are uploaded, users are prompted to categorize and describe them before they’re added to the files section. Files can also be attached to milestones and tasks. All files, no matter where they were uploaded, or where they are attached, will appear on the project’s file management page. Tasks in Clever Tools are smaller to-do items, while Milestones are larger undertakings. Tasks can be set as a subset of specific Milestones, such that all Tasks must be complete before the Milestone can be marked as done. Tasks and Milestones are given a name, description, due date, tags, category, and can be assigned to a single person or group of people. All of a user’s Tasks are added to their calendar with visual indicators of which are most urgently due.TimesheetThe timesheet application, while not quite fully functional, is completely mocked up, so I was able to get a feel for what Clever Tools has planned in this area. With the timesheet app, users can track time in two ways: by manually entering timesheets into the system, or by using a real-time clock that can keep track of time users spend on projects. Each project can be given a budget that is mapped to an hourly rate so that users can make sure they aren’t going over budget (or will be alerted when they are in danger of overrunning monetary constraints). Jennings and the Clever Tools team have plans for an invoicing app (alluded to above in the hooks with the timesheet app), a bug tracker, and a group whiteboard. And though there was little information available on these applications, Jennings told me it is likely that Clever Tools will launch winter 2008 without the whiteboard app, which will be developed last.ConclusionSo far, Clever Tools is pretty bare. It is only in a very early stage of development, but what I saw was promising. It is certainly rough around the edges and has a ways to go, but they do things differently enough from Basecamp, GoPlan, ActiveCollab, and the rest that I think there is a legitimate chance for Clever Tools to make a splash in the market and find its own niche.There are some things that Clever Tools gets very right from the start, too. For example, 37Signals is only just starting to unify their applications under a single sign on. Clever Tools, on the other hand, will bake that in from the beginning, so that anyone who has projects at multiple companies (which freelancers often do), will only have to sign in once. Clever Tools will also support OpenID. Jennings tells me that he also plans a developer API for Clever Tools, that would let a outside companies like Blinksale or Freshbooks create tie-in apps so that people could use a third party service instead of the built-in Clever Tools applications if they so desired.It certainly remains to be seen whether Clever Tools will tear me — or anyone else — away from Basecamp. What I saw so far is a promising start, however. josh catone 1 A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Analysis#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting One of the big selling points of Clever Tools is the integration of the apps, which will all play well with each other. “To further illustrate the integration of the different tools, Clever Tools will pull tasks assigned to a user in the project manager tool to allow them to track time against that task,” Jennings told me. The timesheet app will also tie into the invoicing tool, allowing users to generate an invoice based on the time tracked in the timesheet tool, and it will integrate with PayPal and 2Checkout.The RestClever Tools also has big plans for their leads management app, which Jennings tells me has morphed into more of a CRM tool. The tool will, however, still do some lead management. For example, one thing it will do is provide an AJAX widget that affiliates can embed on websites that will collect user information and send it directly to the CRM tool along with where the user’s information was captured. “With Clever Tool‚Äôs CRM, you can create meetings complete with Google maps integration, add tasks, manage to-dos, attach documents, convert into an active project, export Outlook VCF cards, add notes, and upload a picture for every contact,” said Jennings, rattling off a list of features to me.
