This year’s group were particularly lucky as the project with St Camillus’ Hospital was particularly challenging.“The Interior Design and Technology course offers modules on the elements and principles of design along with digital imaging and three dimensional computer modelling.

first_imgBy Judy HarrisonUniversity of GeorgiaJust because your mother and her mother before her treated food a certain way doesn’t mean it’s the safest way. It’s time to bust some common myths about keeping food safe at home. Myth: Once a hamburger turns brown in the middle it is cooked to a safe temperature. Fact: You cannot use visual cues to determine whether food has been cooked to a safe internal temperature. The only way to tell for sure is to use a food thermometer. Ground meats should reach at least 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Ground poultry should reach at least 165 F.Myth: Lemon juice and salt will clean and sanitize a cutting board.Fact: Instead of using lemon juice and salt, to kill bacteria, people should use a solution of chlorine bleach and water. Sanitizing is the process of reducing the number of microorganisms that are on a properly cleaned surface to a safe level, reducing the risk of foodborne illness. The most effective way to do this is with a solution of unscented chlorine bleach and water. To clean and sanitize a cutting board, first wash it with hot, soapy water and rinse. Then prepare a solution of 1 tablespoon chlorine bleach per gallon of water or 1 teaspoon of chlorine bleach per quart of water. Let the bleach solution stand on the surface for at least one minute, either by spraying it on or immersing the board in the solution. Allow the board to air-dry or dry it with a clean paper towel. Myth: You should not put hot food in the refrigerator.Fact: Hot food can be placed directly in the refrigerator. A large pot of soup or stew should be divided into several smaller portions in shallow containers for quicker cooling in the refrigerator. Bacteria can multiply rapidly when foods are left at room temperature for more than two hours. Always follow the two-hour rule, and refrigerate perishable foods at 40 F or colder before it expires. If the food is left out where temperatures are 90 F or hotter, refrigerate foods after an hour. Myth: Putting chicken in a colander and rinsing it with water will remove bacteria like salmonella.Fact: Rinsing poultry will not remove all the bacteria. In fact, rinsing can spread the raw juices around your sink, onto your countertops and around your kitchen. Cross-contamination can then be a problem. Other foods can become contaminated with bacteria when they come in contact with these juices. Thorough cooking kills bacteria. Bacteria in raw meat and poultry are killed when the food is cooked to a safe internal temperature. Cook poultry until the internal temperature reaches at least 165 F. Save yourself the messiness of rinsing.To keep your food safe, remember these steps: clean, separate, cook and chill. That’s a fact!(Judy Harrison is a food safety specialist with University of Georgia Cooperative Extension.)last_img read more

first_imgIf you thought the last post was awful, this one is worse. We’re back to giving bad advice. This time, we’re talking choices, external link warnings, and, because it’s my top pet-peeve, passwords again!More Options Is Always Better“Enjoy checking…with choice! Find the account which matches your needs from our 5 different plans. They’re basically all the same, besides a 0.01% dividend. But who cares…options are essential!”I get the concept: By creating a solution for every possible need, you can appeal to any potential member. Thus, your membership potential isn’t any one category, it’s humans (and sometimes even that is stretched…why can’t your dog share in savings?). Now that I’m thinking about it, savings account for your pets is pretty cool. You could put away for their essentials, vet bills, unexpected challenges, and more. It’s like a savings goal but separated in a fun way. Ok, that one is excluded.Where was I? Oh, yes, choices. My business works primarily with the auto lending side of credit unions. In it, there is one main goal: Encourage the member to get pre-approved. However, people look for a car before a loan (unless they have no clue what they can afford/finance). As a result, many credit unions set up car-buying resources. They include calculators, lengthy PDF guides, and external company links. In many cases, they’re not even affiliated with those outside links! (Keep this in mind, it comes up later) What are you doing? Keep it simple! One link to do the fun “build/find a car” with a partner program (Disclosure: My company offers exactly this) and another to get pre-approved. Those outside company links? They often have their own financing programs. Bye bye loan (or ever knowing that member is looking to buy a car).You may have heard of the “Paradox of Choice”. Give someone too many options and they’ll never make any decision. In fact, new research shows that this isn’t 100% true (science doubts itself always, boys and girls). What they found was that better options are better. More options for the sake of options makes people do one of two things: 1) Never decide and do nothing or 2) Decide based on meaningless factors (possibly because the important ones are hard to understand or not immediately obvious). If you must offer options, make sure they are equally good and clearly different.External Link Warnings Keep Members SafeA vestige of the World Wide Web’s “dark ages”, these are pop-up messages telling the browser that they are now leaving so-and-so’s website, and they cannot guarantee their safety, security, or that delivery will be in 30 minutes or less. You don’t need them. Many credit union legal teams claim they are mandated, but the only reference I’ve ever uncovered is a non-binding NCUA guidance from 2003. That’s Pi, or pre-iPhone. Weather widgets, local news scrollers, and other useless distractions were commonplace on most websites. Sure, if someone was clicking from their online banking to see what the latest news is in Anytown, USA, yeah, I’d want to ensure it was clear that site isn’t us.You’ve learned a lot since then.And if you’re that worried about where you are sending members, why send them there? (Remember the post Trusted Partners!) I’ve seen external link warnings on links to NCUA, loan applications, and more. You have legally-binding agreements with these partners or providers! It gives me the feeling these credit unions just said, “The world is a scary place. Let’s terrify our members, too. Oh, and make sure they never use our products.”Alright, your legal team insists the warnings are necessary. Can’t argue. Just make them friendlier! Instead of a long text field in legalese, create a bright-colored, concise text notice. “Hey, just so you know, this link goes to someone we work with. They’re great, but we have to let you know they might have different policies on privacy than us. Click here to continue or just wait 5 seconds and we’ll get you on your way!”Simple, friendly, and still accurate. Always remember your mission. You’re people serving people. The second you adopt the terminology people associate with “big banks”, you’re no different.So, instead of slapping warnings on every link, be diligent in working with people and companies who truly share your mission. Then you don’t need to warn anyone about anything. And, if it’s essential, be nice about it.Passwords With Symbols Are Most SecureWe covered this in passing last time. But since the focus was on changing passwords, I want to cover this independently. Your password doesn’t need to go to the gym. And no, your password doesn’t even lift, bro.Password strength is determined by how hard it is for a computer to figure it out, strictly by guessing. And you know the easiest way to make it really hard? Length. Not symbols. Not using aLterNatinG cases. Not replacing 13tt3rs with numbers. Sheer length. Here’s that amazing xkcd comic to explain why, once again.If my password was “GoshIneverrememberpasswordsnomatterwhattheyare”, I can guarantee you, no computer in existence today will ever crack it. Yet you’ve already memorized it.Many recent password leaks have had passwords figured out because the security they used was garbage. I can’t help you there. Insist their system gets an outside security audit regularly, and, if they’re responsive, ask if they’re using salted password hashes. If they aren’t, don’t give them your information.With good security and strong passwords (ie. long ones), you can enjoy the convenience of online services with little worry of your information being compromised.I never want to see those, “Your password must include 6 symbols, 2 emoji, 3 different cases, and one name of your favorite pet” prompts again!And that’s just a bit more bad advice. 40SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Joe Winn What do you get when you mix auto loan programs with a desire to help others? Well, approaches that make a difference, of course. So what do you get when … Web: credituniongeek.com Detailslast_img read more

first_imgKarl du Fresne BlogSpot 21 August 2016Family First Comment: “Many of the reformers seem blind to much of the damage done by drug use. But Garry Evans saw it in his 18 years as a coroner. He told this newspaper on his retirement that the term ‘recreational drug’ was a misnomer; put a “w” in front of it, he said, and you’d be closer to the truth.”#wreckreationaldrugs My generation has a lot to answer for. Recreational drugs, for example – or as former Wellington coroner Garry Evans preferred to call them, “wreckreational drugs”.Mine was the generation that rebelled against the values of its parents. We were smug and spoilt, with plenty of time on our hands to reflect on how wrong our elders were about everything.We rejected their dreary, conformist moral values. “If it feels good, do it” became the catch-cry of a generation.And it did feel good – for a while. But then the casualties began to pile up. Drug abuse, serial relationship failures and, most tragically, emotionally damaged offspring are part of the price society has paid for idealistic 1960s liberalism.Initially, drugs seemed very much a middle-class hippie thing. Most of the dope smokers and trippers I knew in the late 60s were arty types and intellectuals. Drugs were one way of rebelling against a society they found dull and stifling.Quite a few ended up permanently damaged, but others succeeded in managing their drug use. They were smart enough to ensure that it never seriously interfered with their lives or careers.READ MORE: http://karldufresne.blogspot.co.nz/2016/08/the-lingering-consquences-of-idealistic_21.html?m=1last_img read more

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersBuechler will be the Lakers’ summer league head coach, emphasizing a concept that has significantly contributed to the Lakers overseeing their worst four-year stretch in franchise history (91-237).“The real focus is going to be on our defense,” Buechler said. “We were 30th in defense last year. That has to change. That has to change right now.”It has not changed for quite some time.In Luke Walton’s first season as coach, the Lakers finished 28th out of 30 NBA teams in points given up (111.5), last in defensive field-goal percentage (48.3) and last in fast-break points given up (16.2). That fared mostly worse than in 2015-16 for former Lakers coach Byron Scott. Then, the Lakers finished 27th in points given up (106.9), 29th in defensive field-goal percentage (47.3) and 29th in fast-break points given up (17).“I made it clear. The rest of our coaching staff made it clear with our players. The focus is defense,” Buechler said. “For us to progress and get back to a playoff-caliber team, which we want to do as fast as possible, the defense has to change. It has to change right now.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error After the Lakers heard that message, they vowed they will meet the challenge.“That’s all we’ve been focusing on, really,” Lakers rookie forward Kyle Kuzma said. “We really got a pretty electric offense with guys like Lonzo (Ball,) BI (Brandon Ingram), and Big Zu (Ivica Zubac) down there. We can throw it in the post. Our main focus is defense and trying to stop guys.”Buechler listed Zubac, Ingram and Lakers shooting guard Josh Hart as potential defensive stoppers.“We’re a team that kind of wants to get out there and run,” Hart said. “That starts with defense and starts with getting stops, rebounding the ball, getting deflections and getting out and running.”Words of wisdomIn less than two weeks, Zubac went from an unknown 32nd pick out of Croatia to a fan favorite. That’s because Zubac showed his potential on last year’s Las Vegas Summer League team.So, Zubac’s younger teammates have sought his advice.“I’m in a different situation. I was a rookie and didn’t know anything last year,” Zubac said. “I was asking a lot of questions. I can help the other guys that haven’t been in this situation. I really enjoy it.”Zubac has told his teammates to “be patient,” mindful he rarely played before starting late in the season. Since then, Zubac has tried to improve his perimeter shooting. Will he showcase that in summer league?“It depends if I get a lot of chances,” Zubac said. “If I’m open at the 3-point line, I’m going to shoot it. It depends how many times I’m going to be open.”center_img EL SEGUNDO >> Those championship trophies along the window inside Jeanie Buss’ office represent what consumes the Lakers franchise.The trophies have provided a visual reminder what could be obtainable in June, but that has been unreachable while missing the playoffs for four consecutive years.So those images symbolize something else when the Lakers compete in the Las Vegas Summer League beginning against the Clippers at 5:30 p.m. today.“We’re going there to win the summer league,” Lakers assistant coach Jud Buechler said.last_img read more

first_imgHouston walk on scholarships awarded at team film session.YouTube/UHAthleticsWe can’t get enough of videos of college football walk-ons getting awarded scholarships. The life of a walk-on can be pretty thankless at times, especially when players have to balance schoolwork and all of the rigors of Division I athletics, without the benefit of a scholarship. A full ride can be life-changing for walk-ons and their families, and these videos always show how important those guys are to their teammates.On Wednesday, Houston head coach Tom Herman awarded two walk-ons—senior tight end Hayden Daniels and senior cornerback Tyler White—with scholarships for their final years. Herman was a bit tricky about it, opening by getting on the walk-ons who hadn’t yet had holds lifted by the university, chastising the group for a lack of “urgency,” before surprising the pair with their full rides. Daniels appeared in four games for the Cougars last year, while White played in all 13 games, registering 12 total tackles and fielding a crucial onside kick that helped spark Houston’s 35-34 comeback win over Pittsburgh in the Armed Forces Bowl.last_img read more
