The Jobs-Plus Pilot Program sponsored by HUD supports work readiness and job placement efforts in addition to helping public housing residents find and/or upgrade employment by connecting residents with local employers.Analysts have shown there is a direct correlation between the housing market and the overall economy; the housing market needs the economy to rebound in order to fully recover, and vice versa. HUDs Jobs-Plus Pilot Program is a step toward helping both housing and the economy recover, and then sustaining that recovery, by putting resources toward improving the earning potential of public housing residents.”HUD is always looking for innovative ways to help families secure new opportunities and reach their full potential,” Castro said. “This funding uses housing as a platform for success by linking public housing residents with the resources they need to access better paying jobs. HUD has a unique role to play in helping folks better their lives. In addition to helping folks secure decent, affordable housing, we are committed to ensuring that their housing serves as a springboard to success.”Castro made the announcement of the funding during a walking tour of a neighborhood in Central Falls, Rhode Island on Friday. He has been focused on advancing policies that create jobs, therefore creating opportunities for Americans, with HUD approaching its 50th anniversary next year.The Jobs-Plus Pilot Program uses a demonstration program combining training, job placement, and traditional employment with a rent incentive and a place-based investment in building. The program’s goal for each family is to improve employment and attain a higher earned income, thus helping families achieve self-sufficiency. Under the program model, PHAs partner with the Department of Labor American Jobs Centers.

Work on the second nine began in 2016 and will officially be opened at this inaugural Serena Johnnie Walker Golf Open Championship.“The holes that were completed in the first phase were a mix of front and back nine holes,” said Ramsey in an interview with golfcoursearchitecture.netThe 18th hole at the par 72 Kigo golf course.He told golfcoursearchitecture.net that “There is no difference in style, we are just pushing on to the far end of the site. The key feature of the entire site is the proximity and view to Lake Victoria. Visible on all holes and in play on three including both finishing holes.”Ramsey, who was one of several guests at the launch on Saturday, says the course is a unique gem.“This is a very unique one-of-a-kind golf facility in the sense that access to the marina is between the ninth and eighteenth holes.

23 May 2005Homegrown in the Cape Winelands, a campaign to boost tourism in the wine-producing region, aims to get visitors to stay longer and spend more by involving local communities and real-life tourism ambassadors.Launched on 2 May, the campaign will unite the region’s tourism sector in a common marketing initiative, allowing them to offer their unique attractions while still being part of an exciting regional identity.The Cape Winelands district municipality aims to capitalise on both the region’s proximity to Cape Town and its own identity and attractiveness.The campaign showcases thousands of things to do in the region – before you even taste a drop of wine.“The idea is to encourage visitors, both domestic and international, to experience the diversity of regional products by emphasising their local content, sense of place, culture and traditions,” says Clarence Johnson, executive mayor of the Cape Winelands municipality.“The campaign is contemporary, absorbing, distinctive, encompassing of diversity, inspirational and supportive of all things local and lekker.”Six themesThe campaign will promote the region under six broad themes: indulgence of body and soul; food and wine taste sensations; adrenalin adventures; celebrating democracy and the freedom of our people; a journey into history and culture; and freshest local produce.The themes are to be promoted using real-life ambassadors for the region, people chosen by the different tourism bureaus to extol the lekker attractions of the Winelands.“In this way we have real endorsements and credibility, with a strong human element,” says Johnson. The idea is to build up a group of people who will take part in advertising campaigns.One of these is Piet “Potjie” le Roux (33), who runs adventure races from his home base in Rawsonville. Equally at home in a kayak on the Breede River or hanging from a rope on a cliff face, Piet lives his philosophy of “heeltyd speeltyd (playtime all the time)”. Piet is an ambassador for the adrenaline adventure theme.The Homegrown campaign will link to the Proudly South African and SA Tourism’s Sho’t Left initiatives, and the domestic marketing efforts of Cape Town Routes Unlimited.“The campaign will also address black economic empowerment by encouraging partnerships between emerging and mainstream tourism businesses,” says Johnson.Thompsons Tours will partner the campaign with suitable packages of two-, four- and seven-night fly-drives, as well as two- and five-night self-drives. They will also supply all products that provide campaign special offers.Special offersHomegrown in the Cape Winelands special offers will include:Up to 50% off standard rates or three nights for the price of two for guest-house, B&B, self-catering and farm-stay accommodation.Complimentary desserts and wine when dining in the Winelands.Mountain biking, horse trails, quad biking, boulder hopping, rafting, abseiling and trout fishing value-for-money adrenaline experiences.Therapies, spas and mineral springs for an indulgence of body and soul.Listening to the stories of the people of the Cape Winelands, meeting some of the quirkiest characters and seeing the Cape Winelands through curious eyes.For further information on Homegrown in the Cape Winelands, visit the Cape Winelands website or contact the Homegrown Hotline on 0860 946352.SouthAfrica.info reporter
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I was recently in the midst of a battle with a broken water softener. I was made aware of the problem via an aggravating beeping sound coming from the basement — the “error” alarm on the water softener.Within hours I discovered that my thrice-filtered well water had gone from clear to an unsettling iron orange color. I determined the problem, ordered the part and got the water softener issue resolved as quickly as possible. Filtered, treated, softened water is a very good thing that I really appreciate.In the midst of the multiple-day water softening fiasco at my house, I read an article about the rise in popularity of a new, trendy beverage craze — raw water. According to the New York Times, raw water contains probiotics or “healthful bacteria” not found in city water or bottled water subjected to filtration that removes beneficial minerals. The “raw water” is said to be sourced from pristine natural springs and sells for staggering dollar figures of up to $60 a gallon. From a related New York Times article:The founder of Live Water, Mukhande Singh, started selling spring water from Opal Springs in Culver, Ore., three years ago, but it was a small local operation until this year. Marketing materials show Mr. Singh (né Christopher Sanborn) sitting naked and cross-legged on a hot spring, his long brown hair flowing over his chest.Pure water can be obtained by using a reverse osmosis filter, the gold standard of home water treatment, but for Mr. Singh, the goal is not pristine water, per se. “You’re going to get 99 percent of the bad stuff out,” he said. “But now you have dead water.”He said “real water” should expire after a few months. His does. “It stays most fresh within one lunar cycle of delivery,” he said. “If it sits around too long, it’ll turn green. People don’t even realize that because all their water’s dead, so they never see it turn green.”Mr. Singh believes that public water has been poisoned. “Tap water? You’re drinking toilet water with birth control drugs in them,” he said. “Chloramine, and on top of that they’re putting in fluoride. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but it’s a mind-control drug that has no benefit to our dental health.”The untreated, unfiltered and unsterilized raw water fad is big business in some areas, including San Francisco. I suppose it is certainly the prerogative of those with the means to buy raw water to do so. There are, however, growing concerns about the raw water’s high costs, incentive for trespassing on private property to collect and public safety.As it turns out, water is filtered and treated for many good reasons, dysentery prevention, for one. Treating water has been a tremendous human health benefit because it removes bacteria, parasites, pesticides, and other contaminants. As a result, outbreaks from water-associated diseases are low in the United States where the water is treated. In parts of the developing world, though, limited access to clean, treated water is a real problem and issues including cholera are real threats to human health.And water contaminants are not just problems in far-off places. From a recent Food Chat article from the Ohio State University College of Food, Agriculture, and Environmental Sciences by Tracy Turner and Abigail Snyder with OSU Extension:…There were some 42 waterborne disease outbreaks associated with drinking water in the United States from 2013 to 2014, resulting in at least 1,006 cases of illnesses, 124 hospitalizations, and 13 deaths, according to the CDC. Ohio was among those impacted states.The biggest culprit was Legionella, which was associated with 57% of these outbreaks and all of the deaths, the CDC said.One way to deter such waterborne disease outbreaks is through effective water treatment and regulations, which can protect public drinking water supplies in the United States, the CDC said.And those consumers who want to take additional precautions when camping, hiking, or traveling to regions without strict water treatment programs can find additional information on filtration, boiling, and other practices from the CDC website.It’s important to note that just because something is labeled natural, unprocessed, or raw, doesn’t automatically mean that it is healthy or better for you. And while there are some foods and drinks that are safe to consume raw, water is not one of them.In addition to the concern that the raw water trend could make people sick, it is also one more effort undermining science and a means for spreading doubts from the fringes to the mainstream. Whether it is genetically modified foods, pasteurized milk or treated water, if the unscientific fears of a few turn into doubts for many, there can be real consequences for the supplies of food and water society depends upon, particularly for those with the lowest incomes.I am proud to work within an industry where so many people stand up for the way they do things on the farm to address the unfounded fears of people who don’t know any better. So many dedicated farm folks have gone to great lengths to open up their barn doors to show others what they do and how they do it in an effort to combat the same kinds of fears that have led to the growing popularity of raw water. These efforts go a long way to not only highlight the positive things being done in agriculture, but also eliminate unfounded fears before they can even get started.I appreciate the people and the science behind some pretty amazing things we often take for granted — including clean water and the safest, lowest cost food system in the history of the world. Taking things for granted for too long leads to some very strange developments, such as irrational fears about genetic modification, dangerous raw milk consumption and now, cross-legged long-haired naked guys selling high-dollar raw water and making a killing with every lunar cycle.I happen to be a big fan of science and the wonderful benefits it brings to my food and my well water, which courtesy of a functional water softener, costs much less than $60 a gallon and keeps the Reese house dysentery-free in every phase of the moon.
The decision was taken on the basis of intelligence information that Dhoni has no threatThe security cover to Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been downgraded to Y from Z category by Jharkhand government, the state’s top police officer said on Monday.The decision to reduce the security category of Dhoni was taken at a recent review meeting on security-related matters being provided to important personalities, Director General of Police Rajeev Kumar said here.He said the decision was taken on the basis of intelligence information that the cricketer has no threat.The DGP said Dhoni used to get nine police personnel as per Z category security and following downgrading of security to Y category he would be provided with seven police personnel.But there should not be any concern for his security as whenever he returns home it would be more than the Z category, Kumar said.He said Dhoni was given Z security some months ago following intelligence report of some threat but now there was no such threat so the review committee decided to downgrade his security to Y category.Dhoni’s residence is situated at Harmu in Ranchi. Whenever he is in town, he goes to Deori temple, about 50 km from the state capital, with some pockets of the route being Naxal-hit.He also loves riding motor-cycle alone when in town.
