Please enter your email address here Hurricane Irma storm debris updateFrom the City of ApopkaThe City of Apopka has resumed collection of bulky, curbside refuse such as bagged garbage and large household items that were delayed by the storm debris cleanup from Hurricane Irma. Crews started work Tuesday in Oak Ridge and in Wekiva Run.Collections are delayed because of an estimated four times the typical amount of bulky waste in residential areas. Because of the volume, in some cases, it takes city crews four days to collect what they would ordinarily collect in a single day.If possible, customers are asked to hold bulky items until the following week to allow collections to get back on a standard schedule.To date, city workers and private contractors have collected an estimated 66,000 cubic yards to storm debris created by Hurricane Irma. Contractor CrowderGulf has nine large trucks and two trailers working in Apopka. Two bucket trucks arrived this week to cut down hanging branches and damaged trees above public roads and right-of-way areas. In many cases, the “hangers” are placed on curbs to await pickup from storm-debris haulers.In Zone 1, crews are finishing Partnership Hills, Lake Todd Estates, Sanctuary Golf Place, Overlook Apartments and Plymouth Landing.In Zone 2, work is continuing in Rock Springs Ridge, Phase 1, and Wekiva Glen. Both of these neighborhoods have very large amounts of storm debris. In Zone 3, crews started in the Pines of Wekiva community and the Summit Street area. In Zone 4, work has focused on Sheeler Oaks as well as on some pickups in Piedmont Lakes.As a result of the large vehicles needed for debris removal, residents are asked to follow these guidelines:• Please make every effort to keep the street clear of parked cars when debris crews are in your area.• Please help to keep storm drains clear. Residents can help aid the debris collection by sweeping up loose leaves and debris after each pass.• Please place debris between the curb and the sidewalk. Avoid placing debris in the street, near mailboxes, fire hydrants, or on top of water mains or electric transformers or underneath power lines or cable wires.• Please keep hurricane tree debris in its own pile.• Please keep bagged leaves & debris, construction debris, fencing, furniture, appliances or anything else separated from hurricane tree debris piles. This will help with the disposal process.Feature photo and map from the City of Apopka Facebook Page Please enter your name here Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Gov.

What Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein teaches us about the need for mothers

TAGSFrankensteinMother’s Daytheconversation.com Previous articleBreaking News: Apopka police raid tax office on Central AvenueNext articleApopka Police Department Arrest Report Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your comment! By Richard Gunderman, Chancellor’s Professor of Medicine, Liberal Arts, and Philanthropy, Indiana University.Note: This article was first published on theconversation.comMotherhood is getting considerable attention, even if much of the news is concerning. Fertility rates are falling in America as millennials decide not to have children. This should hardly come as a surprise. The cost of raising a child to adulthood has been increasing and real median household income has only just regained its 1999 level.At this time, when it could be argued that maternity is in decline, Mary Shelley’s classic work of literature, “Frankenstein,” celebrating its 200th anniversary this year, invites us to reflect on the deeper importance of mothers in our lives.Shelley, who published the work at the age of only 19, had many reasons to make motherhood a major theme. Her mother, the feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, had died from complications arising from her birth. Shelley’s own attempts at motherhood would result in multiple miscarriages and the deaths of three children. Not surprisingly, mothers in “Frankenstein” are conspicuous by their absence – with disastrous consequences.The creation of FrankensteinPortrait of Mary Shelley. Richard RothwellFrankenstein tells the tale of young scientist Victor Frankenstein, who is so horrified at the prospect of death that he seeks a means of restoring life to the deceased. He creates an 8-foot-tall humanoid creature, whose appearance renders it loathsome to all and to which he never gives a proper name. Spurned by its creator, the creature develops a desire for revenge and soon takes the lives of everyone dear to Victor.At numerous points, the novel highlights the devastating effects of maternal absence.To begin with, mothers in Frankenstein are quite short-lived. Victor Frankenstein’s mother, an orphan, dies of scarlet fever while nursing Victor’s “cousin” and eventual wife, Elizabeth. While on their honeymoon, Elizabeth too is killed by the monster. Justine, the Frankensteins’ housekeeper, is falsely convicted of the murder of Victor’s younger brother, also grows up motherless.Frankenstein’s most dramatic instance of motherlessness is the monster itself, a human being created by a man alone. Reflecting on this feat, Victor remarks that “no father could claim the gratitude of his child so completely” as he would deserve of the new race of creatures he sought to create.Simply put, he devises a new way of bestowing life that completely sidesteps the need for conception, pregnancy, and childbirth.Yet Victor had not done away entirely with the need for maternity. For though he had “selected the creature’s features as beautiful,” the moment he beholds it stirring, he recoils.“The beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart.”Unbound by any maternal affection or calling, Victor is “unable to endure” the being he had created and rushes out of the room. His creation was never part of him, and he feels at liberty to abandon it.When the creator matters moreThe roots of the problem lie largely in the fact that Victor has moved procreation from the domain of the natural – the purview of Mother Nature – to that of the technological.His quest is a purely scientific one – a study of chemistry, anatomy and the decay of the human body. It is so devoid of any regard for the sanctity of life that Victor came to regard a churchyard as nothing more than a “receptacle of bodies deprived of life,” implying that a living child might be little more than a body not yet deprived of life.To him, there is nothing mysterious about life and death. The animation of lifeless matter looms before him as nothing more than a daunting but purely technical challenge. He dreams of the power “to renew life” and becomes so engrossed in this one pursuit that his eyes “become insensible to the charms of nature,” including the unfolding of the seasons around him. A “single great object” swallows up “every habit of his nature.” In short, his scientific quest has left him with no appreciation for life’s beauty and mystery.What long reigned as one of the most mysterious and awe-inspiring experiences in human life – the birth of a human being – has in Victor’s mind become little more than proof of his own greatness:“I was surprised that among so many men of genius who had directed their enquiries toward the same science, I alone should be reserved to discover so astonishing a secret.”To Victor, the act of creation says much less about the creature than the creator.Devoid of the feminine, bringing forth new life becomes a completely masculine act, an exercise of mastery and control over a reluctant but ultimately compliant nature. Victor’s cold detachment from his creation contrasts sharply with the experience of childbirth as described by those who have been through it – a description not of conquest but endurance and the unfolding of something that resists control.The experience of labor and birthConsider this account of labor by the 20th-century activist Dorothy Day in her essay, “Having a Baby: A Christmas Story”:“Where before there had been waves, there were now tidal waves. Earthquake and fire swept my body. My spirit was a battleground on which thousands were butchered in a most horrible manner.”It is not difficult to imagine Day having just read Frankenstein’s account of bringing forth new life when she penned these lines about men giving birth:“‘What do they know about it, the idiots?’ I thought. And it gave me pleasure to imagine one of them in the throes of childbirth. How they would groan and holler and rebel. And wouldn’t they make everybody else miserable around them?”In Day’s account, gestation and childbirth are not like pushing buttons on a control panel but a journey along which the mother is swept – something she does not so much choose as endure. And when it is over, she is presented with a baby fashioned less by her than in her and through her. The form of the baby, from its generic sex to its distinctive features, is a joyful surprise even to the woman who has served as the home of its development for over three-quarters of a year.Dorothy Day in a 1916 photo. Unknown photographerFor Victor, the process is quite different. He too is surprised, but his surprise reflects the fact that, although he has in fact painstakingly selected each of the creature’s features, the end result turns out radically different from what he envisioned. He thought every aspect of the creature was subject to his control, but instead of a superman, he has produced a monster. His horror is magnified by the fact that his creature is his product, while Dorothy Day receives her daughter as something more akin to a gift.What does a mother add?Thanks to “Frankenstein,” we can pose a question the answer to which would have seemed obvious throughout most of the course of human history: What does a mother add? The answer, in simplest terms, is that mothers add to life something that Victor Frankenstein – who treats the whole process of creation as nothing more than a challenge to his own ingenuity – is unable even to recognize, let alone wield: the power of a love that puts creature before creator.Victor has made something new, but it was never a part of him, and from the moment he lays eyes on it he seeks to disassociate himself from it. Because the creature’s appearance disappoints him, he feels within his rights to turn his back on it – to abandon it to a world utterly unprepared to receive it. The circumstances of the creature’s birth may be monstrous, but it is not yet a monstrosity. Only by depriving it of any semblance of love does Victor create a true monster.By showing us a world from which mothers are largely absent, Mary Shelley reminds us that the genius of motherhood lies less in biological reproduction than in the capacity to love. Human beings need love to develop and thrive. We honor this capacity of mothers when we say that someone has a face that “only a mother could love.”Perhaps Victor’s creature would never have developed into a monster in the first place, if only it had enjoyed the love of a mother.

On This Day in History: D-Day!

Dial 511Next article4 ways to vacation on the water this summer Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR  From The History ChannelJune 6th, 1944:Although the term D-Day is used routinely as military lingo for the day an operation or event will take place, for many it is also synonymous with June 6, 1944, the day the Allied powers crossed the English Channel and landed on the beaches of Normandy, France, beginning the liberation of Western Europe from Nazi control during World War II. Within three months, the northern part of France would be freed and the invasion force would be preparing to enter Germany, where they would meet up with Soviet forces moving in from the east.With Hitler’s armies in control of most of mainland Europe, the Allies knew that a successful invasion of the continent was central to winning the war. Hitler knew this too, and was expecting an assault on northwestern Europe in the spring of 1944. He hoped to repel the Allies from the coast with a strong counterattack that would delay future invasion attempts, giving him time to throw the majority of his forces into defeating the Soviet Union in the east. Once that was accomplished, he believed an all-out victory would soon be his.On the morning of June 5, 1944, U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the supreme commander of Allied forces in Europe gave the go-ahead for Operation Overlord, the largest amphibious military operation in history. On his orders, 6,000 landing craft, ships and other vessels carrying 176,000 troops began to leave England for the trip to France. That night, 822 aircraft filled with parachutists headed for drop zones in Normandy. An additional 13,000 aircraft were mobilized to provide air cover and support for the invasion.By dawn on June 6, 18,000 parachutists were already on the ground; the land invasions began at 6:30 a.m. The British and Canadians overcame light opposition to capture Gold, Juno and Sword beaches; so did the Americans at Utah. The task was much tougher at Omaha beach, however, where 2,000 troops were lost and it was only through the tenacity and quick-wittedness of troops on the ground that the objective was achieved. By day’s end, 155,000 Allied troops–Americans, British and Canadians–had successfully stormed Normandy’s beaches.Courtesy of CNNFor their part, the Germans suffered from confusion in the ranks and the absence of celebrated commander Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, who was away on leave. At first, Hitler, believing that the invasion was a feint designed to distract the Germans from a coming attack north of the Seine River, refused to release nearby divisions to join the counterattack and reinforcements had to be called from further afield, causing delays. He also hesitated in calling for armored divisions to help in the defense. In addition, the Germans were hampered by effective Allied air support, which took out many key bridges and forced the Germans to take long detours, as well as efficient Allied naval support, which helped protect advancing Allied troops.Though it did not go off exactly as planned, as later claimed by British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery–for example, the Allies were able to land only fractions of the supplies and vehicles they had intended in France–D-Day was a decided success. By the end of June, the Allies had 850,000 men and 150,000 vehicles in Normandy and were poised to continue their march across Europe.The heroism and bravery displayed by troops from the Allied countries on D-Day has served as inspiration for several films, most famously The Longest Day (1962) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). It was also depicted in the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers (2001).

Midweek Madness – The Denis Leamy head tap

first_imgWednesday Jun 18, 2008 Midweek Madness – The Denis Leamy head tap Denis Leamy, despite seeming pretty serious and all about the hard work on the field, must surely been one of those players who behind the scenes, is actually somewhat of a character and has quite a sense of humour. I dont know much about him personally, so those who know more will be able to confirm whether thats true or not.One thing that can be confirmed though is the absurdity of whats shown in this short funny clip from last weekends test match between Australia & Ireland.Leamy took it upon himself to find a whole new way of distracting the opposition scrumhalf, which, on this occasion, meant tapping Luke Burgess on the head when he was about to pass the ball out from the bottom of the ruck.We saw Leamy trying something new with his bunny hopping madnessat the back of the scrum in the past, but this is new tactic, a funny tactic, and one that I bet kids around the world will be haunting referees with after seeing this clip. :: Related Posts :: Australia pushed all the way by Ireland in Melbourne Denis Leamy’s bunny hopping-madness at the back of the scrum ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Classic Encounter – Springboks vs All Blacks 2000

first_imgFriday Jul 31, 2009 Classic Encounter – Springboks vs All Blacks 2000 A few weeks after the Test of the Century between the All Blacks and Australia, Ellis Park in Johannesburg played host to a match that was right up there with the best in terms of entertainment, action, and emotionally charged Test matches. It was a thrilling encounter between the Springboks and the All Blacks which featured ten tries in total, with eight being scored before the break. South Africa had been struggling, with coach Nick Mallet under fire following four successive defeats. The players were also under pressure, but they duly silenced their critics as they took the game to the mighty ABs and prevailed. They ran them ragged scoring five tries in 30 minutes before New Zealand fought back to close the twenty point deficit, and even take the lead at 37-36 following a Andrew Mehrtens penalty. Robbie Fleck, in for the injured De Wet Barry, was lethal on the day as he scored two tries and troubled the opposition midfield whenever he had ball in hand. The brilliant Christian Cullen scored his sixth Tri Nations try of the year and his 40th Test try in total. He scored again later, as did Tana Umaga who looked threatening whenever he had ball in hand. The Springboks withheld the late onslaught though with some superb defensive work. Late in the game they camped in the New Zealand half before scrumhalf Werner Swanepoel picked up his second try as they hung on for the memorable 46-40 win.The video is down.

Josh van der Flier’s record breaking 34 tackles against Connacht

first_imgThursday Jan 4, 2018 Josh van der Flier’s record breaking 34 tackles against Connacht In case you missed it, Leinster’s Josh van der Flier made a record breaking 34 tackles during their PRO14 clash with Connacht. That’s officially a tournament record, the highest number of tackles made in a PRO14 match since stats began to be tracked by Opta in 2010. The incredible part of this achievement is that he didn’t miss a tackle either.You can see each one of those 34 tackles below, aided by the bright red headgear he wore.The previous record was held jointly by Cardiff Blues and Wales flanker Josh Navidi (30) and Edinburgh and Scotland prop Alasdair Dickinson (30).Leinster and Ireland flanker Sean O’Brien has called it a ‘super-human’ effort. “Yeah, it was phenomenal so it was. He has a serious engine in fairness to Josh. He works incredibly hard, is a great professional and he puts in big shifts every week he goes out.“It’s super-human and I don’t think it will be broken for a long time – unless he breaks it himself again,” added O’Brien, whose own record is reportedly just 23, set in 2001.credit: rugbypassADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
