redistricting Hearings Added To Start Of Committee Week

Monday, September 30th, 2013

The calendar for next week’s state legislative committee meetings continues to evolve.

A number of legislative and congressional redistricting meetings have been added to Monday’s schedule.

Earlier this week, the Senate Select Committee on Protecting Florida’s Children had been moved to Monday, Sept. 19. The meeting is expected to get all sorts of attention because of the efforts by legislators to create a “Caylee’s law” in response to public anger over a jury rendering a notguilty verdict against the dead girl’s mother.

On Thursday, four redistricting committee and subcommittee meetings were posted for Monday, Sept. 19.

According to a release from the state House, committee members “will begin reviewing the public input received at recent redistricting meetings held in 26 communities across Florida.”

tim Pawlenty Under Fire From Florida Democrats

Friday, September 27th, 2013

Two candidates for the Republican presidential nomination former Gov. Sen. Rick Santorum are hitting the Sunshine State on Tuesday and Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith showed on Monday that he is taking one of them seriously.

Smith attacked Pawlenty and also threw a jab at former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts for hemming and hawing on backing the proposed budget crafted by Rep. Paul Ryan, RWis., and backed by congressional Republicans.

“Tim Pawlenty spoke a lot about the truth and straight talk yesterday, but he has repeatedly dodged giving a direct answer on whether, as president, he would sign the Ryan budget that dismantles Medicare. As president you either sign the bill or you don’t. There isn’t room for a wily, equivocating, Romneyesque answer, only strong leadership. So, which will it be Governor Pawlenty?” demanded Smith.

com Provides Reliable Aaa Swiss Replica Watches

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

I still recall sitting at the table with my parents at a New Year’s Eve party. Imitation Watches They were in deep conversation, with a Portuguese couple of similar age, and I was left staring at my place setting feeling very disinterested with the proceedings.

I was 18 years of age taking advantage of my last free holiday, in the Algarve ,courtesy of mater and pater. I distinctly remember the onset of boredom as the night wore on.

Then, across the dancefloor, I saw two brown chocolate buttonlike eyes looking back at me. I was instantly smitten and 27 years later brown eyes and I are happily married with two children. Indeed, history does repeat itself. I now play the role of family banker to the the two Davies children, funding everything from designer clothes to worldwide travel.

Portugal has always held a special place in my heart. Later in life, I became increasingly enchanted with Cascais near Lisbon. The small coastal town is beautiful, with small fishing boats decorating the harbour and quaint restaurants serving local delicacies.

This is a nation rich in history. The Portuguese were one of the greatest seafaring nations, exploring new territories in South America, Africa, Asia and Australasia. It is therefore befitting that IWC have a range of timepieces named “Portuguese”. Indeed, horology and nautical navigation have been inextricably linked for generations as man has used time as a means of establishing longitude using a marine chronometer.

However, the origin of the name that graces the classical watches harks back to the 1930s. Two Portuguese businessmen, working in the watch sector, commissioned wristwatches from IWC to match the accuracy of a marine chronometer. In 1939, the first Portuguese watch came to fruition and an icon was born.

The term icon is freely granted to a myriad of items, but in the case of the Portuguese, it deserves the appellation. It has always been a byword for elegant, timeless aesthetics. Despite the onset of years, there is no sepia hue to the vintage Portuguese models, they have retained a freshness which belies their years.

Now IWC Schaffhausen have taken the bold decision to revisit the much admired classic and redesign the Portuguese. The question many will ask, myself included, is does it enhance a classic or is it merely change for the sake of change?

The latest iteration bearing the Portuguese soubriquet has a retro feel. It draws heavily on styling cues from the 1930s and is charming in its execution.

Wouldbe buyers have a choice of a slatecoloured or silverplated dial. Both are devilishly handsome.

The watch is available in stainless steel with a sophisticated temperate persona or luxurious 18carat red gold. It is the silverplated dial and 18carat red gold combination which is most appealing to me and is the focus of this watch review.

Hours and minutes are imparted with slender feuille hands, which gracefully arc around the dial, articulating time with brevity.

The case material dictates the finish of the applied Arabic numerals. They have a rich golden hue on my favoured model. The font used to indicate hours is without serifs, or excessive styling, conferring a timeless character.

A svelte blued steel central chronograph hand travels around the dial interfacing with the minute rail.

At 6 o’clock a subsidiary seconds display is presented on a snailed subdial. A slim black circlet frames the subdial and is marked with a combination of black strokes and Arabic numerals at “15”, “30”, “45” and “60”. A gold hand completes the refined ensemble presented.

Below noon, a further subdial features. Once again, it is snailed and utilises gold hands. In this instance it combines a 12hour chronograph counter with a 60minute chronograph counter. The latter scale framing the former display. Red text is used at “60” minutes and “12” hours and provides a mischievous smattering of colour.

new Civil War Guidebook For The Sunshine State

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

On Monday, Florida Secretary of State Kurt Browning unveiled the Florida Civil War Heritage Trail guidebook.

“The Florida Civil War Heritage Trail guidebook offers a factual account of the impact that the Civil War had on Florida’s communities and families,” said Browning. “Information presented in this publication provides a valuable educational resource that will enhance our knowledge and understanding of the Florida places, people and events that played a role in this historic struggle.”

It’s a remarkable book which informs and, unlike far too many books on the Civil War published in recent years, is actually accessible and readable. The 80page work is an effective guide to more than 200 Civil War sites across the Sunshine State.

While this year marks the 150th anniversary of the start of the war, public interest in the Civil War simply is not what it was in 1961 or even in the early 1990s during the aftermath of the Ken Burns PBS series. There are several reasons for this, such as changes in demographics and population centers.

Then there are the books. As a former college registrar who did a master’s thesis on Edmund Ruffin (who fired the first shot of the Civil War at Fort Sumter and fired the last shot when he killed himself after the Confederacy fell), I appreciate academic writing more than most. But the Civil War section of the bookstore is increasingly full of works on historic memory and other topics of intense navel gazing. These books may look good on a curriculum vitae, as adjunct bureaucrats dream of becoming assistant bureaucrats who can then go on to dream of being assistant bureaucrats with tenure.

While they may help with academic ambitions, these books do little to instruct or entertain, which is why you can still find the works of Shelby Foote, Kenneth Stampp, Bruce Catton, David Potter and Douglas Southall Freeman on the shelves and why anything by David McCullough and Doris Kearns Goodwin still has an audience. Whatever their flaws, McCullough and Goodwin write for real people not committees. Warren was a better commander than Oliver Otis Howard), but even I can’t stomach some of the more recent offerings.

The team behind the Florida Civil War Heritage Trail guide David Coles, Frederick Gaske, David Stanford Gregory, Bruce Graetz, Malinda Horton and Patti Cross deserve the thanks of all Floridians. So do the organizations behind the new guide the Department of State, the Florida Association of Museums, the Florida Historical Commission and the Division of Historic Recourses. They have taken our history out of the footnotes and offered a wonderful gift to the people of the Sunshine State. Thank you. Backs Jon Huntsman in 2012

is Goal Setting Worth Doing

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Reading most of self improvement type books they seem to revolve around setting yourself goals in 5 or 6 different areas of your life and then working to complete those for set deadlines.

However while this sounds good in theory in practise we all have our natural desires, habits, thoughts which changes our behaviour by the day should we not just follow these instead of artifically trying to manage your life in some contrived goal setting approach where we spread ourselves thinly and try to achieve these goals that we may not want to achieve why not just follow your instincts and passions by the day. But then there the other way of looking at it we waste time and procastinate and without something pushing us then its easy to fall in the habit of doing nothing.

My opinion that goal setting done with proper planning is useful, but often people goal set without have thought out how they will complete it the other thing is often you really have scratch your head to think of goal you’d like to achieve, often you don’t have the skills or knowledge to complete that goal, often goals are not our decision or beyond or control.

For example if you train hard enough most of us could run a Marathon under 4 hours, if your healthy and under 40 then there is no reason why you cannot do that if you set a goal to get promoted at work, well you might achieve that but there lots of other factors at work that our outside your control.

Then the other problem in order to really get anywhere in life you need to really good at something, rather than being OK at lots of things so rather than goal set in many areas with mediocre goals perhaps its best to set yourself one or two extremely tough goals in what your best at to maximise your chances.

I consider myself to have been fairly successful in life. I’m in no way perfect but I have taken advantage of opportunities given to me and I’ve tried my best to stay out of trouble. I’ve made the best of bad situations and absorbed the best of good situations. All along, I did have some goals but they weren’t these dramatic ideas and concepts with grandiose imaginings. They were simple.

“I want a nice home in a nice neighborhood.”

There’s a decent goal in today’s world. It’s short, simple, and sweet. It’s a longterm goal without a bunch of excess baggage. From there, you can simplify the path to attaining that goal.

“I want a job at ‘X place’ so that I can afford to live there.”

Again, simple goal, perhaps a little more attainable in the shortterm (or not, depending on various factors) but, again, it doesn’t throw all the variables out there. It’s just a short, sweet and simple goal.

“In order to get a job at ‘X place’ I need to have experience, degrees, licenses, etc. so that I can be a viable hiring candidate.”

This brings things a little more to the shortterm. It’s still simplistic and realistic. Most longterm goal achievements are a series of shortterm goals. Think of it like a football game. Every once in a blue moon a touchdown (or goal) is achieved by a 100yard kick return. But, by and large, the majority of goals are achieved by consecutive first down plays (some larger than others) until the final goal of a touchdown is achieved.

Just keep moving the ball, so to speak, and you’ll eventually arrive. Don’t lose sight of short term goals (or the longterm final goal) and you’ll eventually succeed.

Good post. I, too, have set goals and achieved them. In my younger life I always had financial problems and was never able to own a place of my own. I set that as a goal, and I got it, at age 52. I do the same with other goals. And as GCSTroop pointed out, it takes steps to get thereyou don’t just make a goal, sit there, and wait for it to materialize. However, I believe that setting the goal works in your subconscious to direct you to take the steps you need to in order to get what you need or want.

You also have to make them realistic; for example, “I want a reliable automobile”, not “I want a red Lexus”.

I think that too many people delude themselves by telling them they are special (for if everyone is special, no one is special). It from being told tripe like, can do anything you set your mind to, which is one of the worst clichs. No amount of setting my mind to play basketball like Michael Jordan is going to make me play basketball like Michael Jordan.
