"For example, (subtropical storm Alberto) spun up before the hurricane season even started. If the Gulf waters were a bit hotter, it could have intensified to a cat-egory 1 hurricane." "So, it can happen at any time," he said.National public service website offers a few basic preparedness tips: have an evacuation plan and route, assemble go-bags that include flashlights, batteries, cash, first aid supplies, medications and copies of critical information, plan for adequate supplies (waters, nonperishable food, etc.) if you decide to stay home, and be sure to sign up for local emergency alerts."Everybody in their family needs to understand what the evacuation plan is," said Wendy Mayor, Director of Emergency Management in Holmes County.

"For them to get this far to go to this competition and for this to happen, it's just heart-breaking."Wells has started a GoFundMe account to raise $4,000 to cover the estimated loss of the three laptops.According to Wells, a police report was filed and the insurance notified, however, only damage to the vehicle was covered under the policy. The robotics pro-gram is not state funded at Poplar Springs, mean-ing the students have to raise money to participate in competitions. "This robbery has dealt major blows to the group both mentally and monetarily," Wells wrote on the campaign page. "While we can't get their devices back, I hope we will be able to raise enough to replace them. If you are able, please consider supporting this cause.

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett A cons titutional amendment, in its purest form, allows the voice of the people to rise above „ and override „ the partisan bickering of politics and endless red tape of state bureaucracy. Its power to the people, pure and simple So why doesnt it work? Two full years ago, Floridians spoke both loud and clear on Amendment 2: Medical Marijuana. Pundits thought the issue was a toss-up on that 2016 ballot initiative. It takes 60 percent of registered voters to pass a constitutional amendment. Pundits were wrong. The amendment supporting the legalization of medical marijuana steamrolled the opposition statewide with 71.3 percent of the vote. Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton counties were in line with that numberat a combined71.2 percent. So why isnt it working? Here is all we need to show exactly what the will of the voters was on that Tuesday in November 2016, the ballot summary: Allows medical use of marijuana for individuals with debilitating medical conditions as determined by a licensed Florida physician. Allows caregivers to assist patients medical use of marijuana. The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to patients and caregivers. Applies only to Florida law. Does not immunize violations of federal law or any non-medical use, possession or production of marijuana.Ž Thats it. Voters were not unleashing widespread abuse of devil weed. And there was clear, empirical evidence that marijuana helped ease symptoms of pain in a significant and suffering segment of society. Since 2016, the issue has met with a fate too familiar to us all when Tallahassee sticks its snout into meaningful medicine. Caveats abound, driven by campaign contributions and backroom deals. The main thrust of the smokescreen meant to talk the issue to death, is the difference between pot thats takenŽ and pot thats smoked.Ž What difference does it make? If marijuana is medically legal „ and we said it was „ who cares how its delivered? Just last week, a Leon County circuit judge ruled that smokable marijuana is allowed under wording of the 2016 amendment. Not surprisingly, the Florida Department of Health immediately appealed the ruling. Plaintiffs in the original ruling are asking Judge Karen Gievers to clear the way for her ruling to take effect „ now. None of this would be necessary, had the Legislature not hedged its campaign finance bets, passing a law in the spring that barred patients from smokingŽ medical marijuana. Read that, they passed a law overturning what Amendment 2 clearly stated and voters clearly upheld. Their reasoning? Smoking can cause health problems. How seriously would the potential effects a decade down the road be to patients currently suffering with Lou Gehrigs Disease or HIV? Isnt it time to drop the charade and let those who can benefit do so? A version of this editorial originally appeared in the Ocala Star-Banner, a sister paper within Gatehouse Media.State sti ing the voice of the votersANOTHER VIEW Words ma tter. What we say to each other, how we treat each other matters. There are basic norms of civilized behavior, outside the realm of politics, beyond the reach of cable network news, that we should all be able to agree upon. One of them is that, if you call an African-American woman an "ape," that you are the worst kind of vile racist. And you deserve whatever scorn, whatever vitriol, whatever criticism that comes your way as a result of your actions. It shouldn't be hard to call racist remarks racist. It shouldn't be hard to decry a viciously personal and apparently unprovoked attack. But because of the remove of social media, because the forces at the very top of the American power structure have normalized the worst kind offensive behavior, there's somehow a difference. Because we live in the times that we do, those same disgusting words, uttered by the comedienne Roseanne Barr, about the former Obama administration adviser Valerie Jarrett, who is African-American, are being inevitably viewed through the filter of partisan politics. And that means, to some, they are, as shockingly, mystifyingly, horrifyingly as it seems, entirely acceptable. And to them, Barr not Jarrett is a victim. That sadly unsurprising sentiment came through loud and clear on Wednesday morning when a reader decided to share his views on my office voicemail. "Yes, I would like to show my support for Roseanne Barr," he began. "The Muslim Brotherhood, The Planet of the Apes. Yeah, you have a perfect Valerie Jarrett. I studied this picture last night. What's wrong with saying something like that? Oh, all the butt-hurt liberal media. You know what? I hope they all drop dead because Roseanne is right. And that lady ... woman is a b***h anyway." That's one of your neighbors. One of your colleagues. The guy in front of you in the supermarket checkout line. The person sitting next to you in church. That's the hateful voice of racism here in central Pennsylvania. And if he were the only one, a lone whack-job crying out in the wilderness, that'd be one thing. But he's not. He's the torch-bearing, Nazi-flag waving white supremacist who marched in Charlottesville last year. He's the extreme end of a spectrum that starts with the sort of ignorant prejudice that prompted Starbucks to close its shops on Tuesday to conduct sensitivity training for its employees. But sometimes they don't march. Sometimes they wear suits. And they run for Congress. "Much love @therealroseanne. We live in a country were people don't respect our constitution. One of most essential freedoms is freedom to express ourselves even if it makes others upset. It's beautiful to think different. Shame on the leftist media," Republican Omar Navarro, who's running against U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., tweeted Wednesday.Sadly, Roseanne is a victim to some J o h n L M i c e k John L. Micek The dismissal bell hadnt rung for summer break when a couple of middle school kids had already gotten into serious trouble with their creative play involving a powerful pellet gun. Whether lack of proper training about the safety or lack thereof of these so-called toys or just juvenile lack of judgment, one of these almost high schoolers will spend his summer recovering from perforations in his intestines and a pellet permanently lodged near his spine. What i was told by another student, the two were making a shield and were testing its effectiveness. The one with the guns aim was off and the bullet, pellet, or whatever it was went under the "shield." Whether the injured boy was holding it against his stomach deliberately to test it, I never understood. If so that is a good argument for not leaving even mid teens to their own devices for too long a period of time, without some adult supervision, their judgment is not adequate to protect them from bad calls. With the recent school shootings, it occurred to me that these two kids may have been attempting to devise a way to protect themselves from a potential school shooter. I will give them my admiration if that is the case, but I cant commend their actions. Children and adults cant be too careful when guns are involved and these high powered BB and pellet guns must be treated as guns, not toys. It is the parent's responsibility to see that kids are exposed to all safety rules and then spend enough time with the youth reinforcing what has been taught. I remember having a close call when I was a teenager. Our parents were not home and my younger brother Clyde had taken the 22 rifle from the wall where it hung. I dont know why it was loaded or why he accidentally discharged it in the house. Fortunately, no one was in the line of fire. I dont know where the bullet lodged. I know I never mentioned it to my mama and neither did Clyde. Naturally, we were worried about her being so upset, not about the consequences of our behavior. Summertime should hold fun activities for families, but the possibilities for accidents are multiple. Swimming is the number one fun activity. At least it was for our family, but the potential for tragedy is present. Young children should be taught to swim as soon as possible, but they should never swim unattended. Even older children who are competent swimmers should never swim alone. In a group setting, the buddy system works and is still the best safety plan. Kids and motorized toys such as go-carts and ATV should be closely monitored to insure that safety rules are strictly followed. It only takes one daredevil disregard of the rules to end tragically and create a memory you wish you could forget. Even such fun activities as going blueberry picking can have safety issues like heat exhaustion or allergic reaction to insect stings or bites. Whatever your choice of activity, please stay safe. Learn the rules and abide by them. Use sunscreen and insect repellant with deet. Stay hydrated and have a safe and fun summer so that you can return to school whole and healthy at the end of the break that will fly by all too fast.HAPPY CORNERSummer fun and kids safety Hazel Tison

By Sonia Perez D.The Associated PressEL RODEO, Guatemala „ Rescuers pulled survivors a nd bodies Monday from the charred aftermath of the powerful eruption of Guatemalas Volcano of Fire, as the death toll rose to 62 and was expected to go higher from a disaster that caught residents of remote moun-tain hamlets off guard, with little or no time to flee to safety.Using shovels and back-hoes, emergency workers dug through the debris and mud, perilous labor on smoldering terrain still hot enough to melt shoe soles a day after the volcano exploded in a hail of ash, smoke and molten rock.Bodies were so thickly coated with ash that they looked like statues, and rescuers were forced to use sledgehammers to break through the roofs of houses buried in debris up to their rooflines to try to see if anyone was trapped inside.Fanuel Garcia, director of the National Institute of Forensic Sciences, said 62 bodies had been recovered and 13 of those had been identified.It is very difficult for us to identify them because some of the dead lost their features or their fingerprintsŽ from the red-hot flows, Garcia said. We are going to have to resort to other methods ... and if possible take DNA samples to identify them.ŽHilda Lopez said her mother and sister were still missing after the slurry of hot gas, ash and rock roared into her village of San Miguel Los Lotes, just below the mountains flanks.We were at a party, celebrating the birth of a baby, when one of the neighbors shouted at us to come out and see the lava that was coming,Ž the distraught woman said. We didnt believe it, and when we went out the hot mud was already coming down the street.ŽMy mother was stuck there, she couldnt get out,Ž said Lopez, weeping and holding her face in her hands.Her husband, Joel Gonza-lez, said his father had also been unable to escape and was believed to be buried back there, at the house.ŽGuatemalan authorities say they had been closely monitoring the Volcano of Fire, one of Central Amer-icas most active, after activity picked up around 6 a.m. Sunday.The volcano has registered a number of minor eruptions over the years, and no evacuations were ordered as scientific experts reported the activity was decreasing.Guatemalas disaster agency, Conred, issued a number of standard precautions, advising people to wear protective face masks, clean their rooftops of ash once the eruption was over and cover any food and water intended for human consumption. It also said to heed any recommendations from authorities. Guatemala Citys international air-port was closed due to the danger to planes.Conred spokesman David de Leon said that around 2 p.m. the volcano registered a new, more powerful explosion.Soon, searing flows of lava, ash and rock mixed with water and debris were gushing down the volcanos flanks, blocking roads and burning homes.It traveled much faster. It arrived in communities right when the evacuation alerts were being sent out,Ž de Leon said.Authorities scrambled to issue an evacuation order. Some communities emp-tied out safely. But in places like Los Lotes and the village of El Rodeo, about eight miles downslope from the crater, it was too late for many.The fast-moving flows overtook people in homes and streets with tempera-tures reaching as high as 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit, and hot ash and volcanic gases that can cause rapid asphyxiation. Rafael Letran, a resident of El Rodeo, criticized Conred for not evacuating communities earlier.When the lava was already here they passed by in their pickup trucks yelling at us to leave, but the cars did not stop to pick up the people,Ž Letran said. The government is good at stealing, but when it comes to helping people they lack spark.Ž De Leon said the disaster agency followed protocol.As soon as we received the information around 6 a.m. that the volcano was in an eruptive phase, the protocol was initiated to verify with different sectors and also talk to the communi-ties, to community leaders. ... We had the information from our scientific service, and they told us the trend was that the activity was diminishing,Ž he said.In El Rodeo on Monday, heavily armed soldiers wearing blue masks to avoid breathing in ash stood guard behind yellow tape cordoning off the disaster scene. Helmeted workers carried bodies away on stretchers, and smoke was still rising from some parts of the ashen landscape strewn with boulders and other debris.President Jimmy Morales traveled to survey the disaster area.Emergency crews in helicopters managed to pull at least 10 people alive from areas cut off by the flows. Conred said 3,265 people had been evacuated.Volcano death toll expected to rise NATION & WORLDGuatemalas disaster agency says hot ash and mud have already killed 62 peopleA resident cries after she was safely evacuated from her home Monday near the Volcan de Fuego, or Volcano of Fire,Ž in Escuintla, Guatemala.

Sean Dowis, the victims former live-in boyfriend is cur-rently being held without bond in the Washington County Jail on one open count of murder.His br other, Greg Dowis, has a bond set in the amount of $150,000 on the charge of accessory after the fact to murder, the release stated. Both suspects confessed Greg Dowis assisted Sean Dowis with disposing Zimmermans body. "As relieved as we are that these guys are behind bars for this crime, our hearts are broken for Ms. Zimmermans family," WCSO Sheriff Kevin Crews stated. "Our worst fears were realized in this case. No family should ever have to endure a loss such as this and we are grateful for a commu-nity that has rallied around this family and our agency through-out this investigation."Zimmermans body found, multiple stab woundsZimmerman as an example of overhaul efforts that have received mixed reaction from Bay County veterans. The Mis-sion Act has been approved by Congress but still has to be signed by President Donald Trump before it officially be comes law.Im trying not to just rush in and make a lot of changes,Ž Dunn said of his role on the health subcom-mittee. The first thing to do is take stock of what weve got. Theres a lot of numbers. Youre talk-ing about the single largest hospital and health care system in the country.ŽDunns seat is up for election this November in a district where the military and veterans are a focal point. He is being challenged by Democrats Bob Rackleff of Tallahassee and Brandon Peters of Williston.Legislation introduced by Dunn has become part of the Mission Act, includ-ing the Veterans Increased Choice for Transplanted Organs and Recovery (VICTOR) Act, which gives veterans in need of an organ or bone marrow transplant through the VA health care system the ability to seek care at a federally certified transplant center near their home.Currently, veterans who seek care through the VA and are in need of an organ transplant must go to one of only 14 Veterans Affairs Transplant Centers (VATCs) in the country.Transplants are highly, highly time-sensitive operations. They have to be done, and they have to be done quickly.Ž Dunn said. If you have a guy in Florida who needs a liver transplant, hes got to get to Minneapolis to get to the liver. ... We literally have no VA transplant center in Florida.ŽThe Veterans Opioid Abuse Prevention Act, which seeks to prevent opioid abuse by veterans by connecting VA health pro-viders to a national network of state-based prescription drug monitoring programs, also was incorporated into the Mission Act.In addition to veterans issues, Dunn has also focused on Tyndall Air Force Base, including pushing for upgrades to a F-22 training unit. Dunn included an amendment to modernize [an] F-22 training wingŽ by making it combat-ready to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2019 passed by the House. The NDAA still has to be passed by the Senate and signed by Trump.The upgrade would cost $1.5 billion over several years. Combat and noncombat F-22s differ in electronics, sensors and weapons bay features.This is easily the cheap-est, quickest, most efficient way to increase Americas air superiority,Ž Dunn said. We have had air superiority since World War II, and in order to keep that, we got to take our best air-to-air combat fighters and keep them ready. Were not changing the mission of the wing from training to combat. Were just making the plains utterly combat-ready, which is better training.Ž DUNNFrom Page A5

** A10 Wednesday, June 6, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser JOBSBy Jeffery MarinoZipRecruiter.comConstruction jobs peaked in early 2007, just before the shockwave of the Great Recession reverberated across the economy. Most of these jobs were in housing construction, as the so-called liar loansŽ of the preceding years created unprecedented (and unstable) demand for homeownership. By spring 2009, construction jobs had nearly disappeared, declining tenfold from peak to trough. Construction jobs have nearly recovered to pre-recession levels. But there are two key differences between then and now: Most of the jobs available are for large-scale infrastructure projects and, more importantly, there is a dire shortage of available labor to fill these roles. It stands to reason: During the recession, construction workers had to look elsewhere to support themselves and earn livable salaries. Many who were previously employed in the industry developed new skills, gained more education and moved on to different types of jobs. Now, with so many new positions available, it may be the time for workers to consider a return to construction. Using the ZipRecruiter Opportunity Index, which gauges the ratio of available jobs to job applicants, we determined the top five infrastructure jobs and where to find them. In every case, both in location and job title, the opportunity index indicates there are more jobs available now than there are applicants to fill them. The 5 Best Cities for Infrastructure JobsMetro Area Opportunity Index Binghamton, NY 16.2 Kennewick-Richland-Pasco, WA 8.2 Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, FL 2.0 Jackson, MS 1.8 Madison, WI 1.7The main engine of growth in the Binghamton area of upstate New York is Binghamton University, which has implemented a massive expansion plan to be completed by 2020. The university has a $1 billion annual impact on the region, and its current portfolio of projects has an estimated budget exceeding $184 million. Not far behind is the Kennewick, Washington, metro. This area is often overlooked in favor of Seattle, but when it comes to infrastructure, the Port of Kennewick is growing by leaps and bounds. Set on the Columbia River, this metro is developing projects ranging from improved logistics facilities to becoming a more attractive tourist destination. The Top 5 Infrastructure JobsJob Title Opportunity Index Excavation Laborer 5.1 Traf“ c Control Specialist 3.2 Water Restoration Technician 2.5 Master Plumber 1.6 Truss Designer 1.0Excavation laborers are entry-level roles that play an integral part in any infrastructure project. Given the demand for such workers, development companies are paying increasingly high wages. Pay currently tops out at more than $30 per hour for these jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Most of the top jobs provide entry-level opportunities, but demand remains for highly skilled labor as well. Master plumbers performing at the top of their field can easily fetch six-figure salaries. With nearly two job openings for every applicant in this role, negotiating power is high if you have the right skills to offer. Americas aging infrastructure took center stage when President Barack Obama signed the Recovery Act in 2009, setting aside $50 billion to create jobs and improve the nations roads and bridges. Congress has funded $21 billion in infrastructure spending since President Donald Trump took office.

Is it anymore? Lets talk it out. Tune in online at com/daytonamotormouths THREE THINGS TO WATCHPOCONO THREE THINGS WE LEARNED Fourteen races in, who's your biggest pleasant surprise? GODSPEAK: I'm going with everybody's second-favorite driver, Clint Bowyer. Got a win and is sixth in points. KEN'S CALL: Only because other guys his age have been eyeballing the exit ramp, I'll say Harvick's career-best roll through the opening months.And since we asked, your biggest disappointment? GODSPEAK: Kasey Kahne, because I thought his driving skills would elevate the performance of the No. 95 Chevy. He's 28th in points. KEN'S CALL: This one is easy. All of Hendrick Motorsports. They're off the rails and searching, and while folks assume they'll “ nd it, you just never know. ERIK JONES VS. JOEY LOGANO: During a restart on Lap 151 (of 160) Logano pushed Jones off the track and motored forward to a ninth-place “ nish. Jones wound up 29th.

Do Kyles numbers get enough respect?Not as much as theyd get if he were more well-liked, but those 189 total wins across NASCARs top three series are hard to ignore when searching for the greatest career achievements in stock-car history. His Pocono win gave him 92 wins in that series, to go along with 50 in Trucks and 47 in Cup. Someday down the road, thats going to be one wordy Hall of Fame plaque. Will his eventual career totals ever be matched?Its easy to say no, to assume no one will ever venture away from the Cup Series enough to pile up those numbers. But 15 years ago, we never wouldve assumed Kyles numbers being where they are. Remember, nearly 20 years ago we thought it was amazing when Mark Martin got beyond 40 wins in the X“ nity Series (or was it Busch?) as a mere moonlighter.

We grow up playing with them, blowing seed heads and rubbing the yellow flowers on our faces. Somewhere along most of our personal journeys, the grown-ups manage to convince us that dandelions are bad, because of what they do to the grass monocultures that most Americans cultivate instead of food. My wife is the outlier who would have me veer the lawnmower around a dandelion, which are like the sacred cows of our yard. But unlike most people who worship sacred cows, she eats the object of her reverence. In fact, shes got the whole family doing it, which is no mean feat. Human beings may be born with an appreciation for the aesthetics of dandelions, but not so much for the flavor. You could say it takes work to overcome that bitter hump, but its really a matter of appreciating the benefits and associating them with those bitter flavors, as Ive managed to do with bitter foods like beer, chocolate and coffee. I try to pay as much attention to how something makes me feel afterward as I do to how it tastes, and dandelions make me feel good. It wasnt surprising to learn they are full of nutrients including carotenes, antioxidants, calcium and vitamin A. The secret to eating dandelions is a decadent sauce. Fry it up The entire plant is edible, from the tip of its tenacious taproot to the bright yellow pollen in the blossom. While bitter is the dominant flavor throughout, there is complexity as well. The flowers have an aromatic flavor that has been likened to banana or licorice. When you drop a dandelion in butter, some magical stuff happens. The flower waves its petals for a few minutes like a dying creature, and slowly browns, absorbing butter, shrinking down to a crispy nub that tastes like artichoke with a faint, intriguing note of bitterness. There are two basic approaches to dandelion eating: bury the bitter flavor, or work with it. Either way, a rich sauce is involved. Most examples of burying involve cooking, while the more daring approaches leave the plant raw. We consume bitter greens with a salad dressing of olive oil (2 part), soy sauce (1 part) and mixed vinegars (balsamic, cider, white, lime) (1 part). But for many of us, the right sauce may be that into which we dip our batter-fried dandelion blossoms. I hit the supermarket for a box of Tony Chacheres seasoned Creole fish fry mix, which contains a mix of corn flour and corn meal, in addition to seasonings. The checkout guys were excited about my dandelion plans. At home, I made an egg wash so the batter would stick to the dandelion flowers. It contains one beaten egg with a splash of cream, a shake of garlic powder, a few drops of fish sauce and a teaspoon of oyster sauce. Oil from a jar of anchovies would work, too. I dumped the Creole corn coating in a pan, and went outside for some dandelions. It was sunset, and the sky was beautiful. My wife was in the garden, and all of the dandelion flowers were gone. Every single one. I assumed she was responsible, but she informed me that dandelion flowers close up at night, so I needed to look a little more closely. To deep-fry open or closed flowers, first wash them and let them dry. Drop the blossoms in the egg wash, pull them out one at a time, and roll each flower in the breading. Heat an inch of olive oil to 300 degrees, and drop the flowers in. Cook until they are golden brown all around. Remove and d rain. Going raw Another approach to eating dandelions is to just eat the yellow petals. If you pinch and squeeze the sepal area behind the petals, you can work them out. They can be added raw to anything, from salad to sushi to pancakes. They make a striking garnish for a soup, and they way they dress up rice is perhaps my favorite way to eat dandelion flowers. Tossing those bright stamen into the grains of jasmine or basmati rice is kind of like a poor mans saffron rice, with a similar pollen-y glow. Whole dandelion buds can be added too, raw or cooked, to any dish at virtually any point, as can the leaves, typically chopped. Topped with some crumbled nori sheets, soy sauce, sesame oil and hot sauce, the bitter dandelion flavors disappear into a symphony of other strong, wonderful notes. The bitter power of the dandelion can give pizzaz to the bland and balance any strong flavor, be it spicy, sweet, salty or fatty, and even more bitter. Dandelions are delicious, with a little prepFLASH IN THE PANTaste of summerThere are two basic approaches to dandelion eating: bury the bitter ” avor, or work with it. [ARI LEVAUX]

** B2 Wednesday, June 6, 2018 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser By Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ U.S. stocks rose for the second consecutive day Monday with technol-ogy companies, retailers and household goods companies in the lead. Indexes of technology companies and smaller, more U.S.-focused companies both hit all-time highs.Major technology companies including Googles parent company, Alphabet, made big gains, while Apple rose as it previewed new features and software updates at its Worldwide Developers Conference. Microsoft edged higher after it said it will buy the coder platform GitHub, while new privacy con-cerns weighed on shares of Facebook.Retailers including Target, Walmart and Under Armour rallied, as did Amazon. Energy companies fell as the price of oil continued to slide.After an up and down week last week, the S&P 500 index, a market benchmark used by many index funds, is on its first winning streak in three weeks. The technology-heavy Nasdaq composite finished at a record high, above a mark it set March 12, while the smaller Russell 2000 surpassed a record it set last week.Last week investors reacted to political turmoil in Italy and rising trade tensions as the U.S. continued to hold talks with Chinese offi-cials and placed tariffs on steel and aluminum imported from Europe, Mexico and Canada.Stocks have wobbled in the last few months as investors worried that tariffs and other barriers to trade will reduce economic growth and corporate profits. But Wall Street has mostly treated the tough talk and proposed tariffs as a negotiating tactic. Invesco Chief Global Market Strategist Kris-tina Hooper said the U.S. crossed an important dividing line last week when, after months of talks, its aluminum and steel import duties went into effect.It appears that will lead to some significant retaliatory tariffs,Ž she said. Markets seem to treat it as if its just rhetoric and its just a bargaining tool, and my view is that that is foolhardy.ŽThe S&P 500 climbed 12.25 points, or 0.4 per-cent, to 2,746.87. The index rose 1.1 percent Friday after a strong jobs report. Tech drives Nasdaq to record highsBy Ken ThomasThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ President Donald Trump defended his tough trade negotiations with China, Canada and Mexico on Monday, saying that U.S. farmers have been treated unfairly.Ž The president vowed to turn the tide and break down large trade barriers with top trading partners.Trump opened the week with a series of tweets pointing to his ongoing trade talks with China and a slew of U.S. allies, pointing to his work to help the nations agricul-ture industry. He tweeted that farmers hadnt been doing well for 15 years,Ž blaming the policies of Mexico, Canada and China.By the time I finish trade talks, that will change. Big trade barriers against U.S. farmers, and other businesses, will finally be broken. Massive trade deficits no longer!Ž Trump tweeted. In a sep-arate tweet, he wrote that China already charges a tax of 16% on soybeans. Canada has all sorts of trade barriers on our Agri-cultural products. Not acceptable!Ž The president last week imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from top U.S. trading partners, including Canada, Mexico and the European Union. And he has threatened tariffs on up to $200 billion in Chinese imports, raising the potential for retalia-tion in a dispute involving the globes two largest economies.Senate Republicans have warned that the tariffs could dampen the economic gains from the GOP tax cuts and sour the mood among voters as lawmakers are campaigning to protect the Republican majority in Congress.Many farm-belt lawmakers worry that the trade disputes could make American farmers the target of retaliation. Mexico, for example, has said it will penalize U.S. imports including pork, apples, grapes and cheeses.Groups backed by the influential Koch brothers network announced they were launching a new mul-timillion dollar campaign to oppose tariffs and high-light the benefits of free trade. The groups „ Free-dom Partners Chamber of Commerce, Americans for Prosperity and The LIBRE Initiative „ called on Con-gress to exert oversight by requiring House and Senate votes on any new tariffs and urged the lift-ing of the recent steel and aluminum tariffs as well as those being proposed on goods from China.Freedom Partners James Davis said they wanted to confront pro-tectionist ideasŽ they say would hold back the economy.Trump: US farmers will be treated fairly in trade talks BUSINESSPresident Donald Trump attends a Change of Command ceremony Friday at the U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington. [JACQUELYN MARTIN/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Michael Liedtke and Ryan NakashimaThe Associated PressSAN JOSE, Calif. „ Apple introduced new controls for limiting how much time customers spend on their devices as the company tackles criticism that its devices are becoming increasingly addictive and distracting.The controls allow users to set Do Not DisturbŽ modes on their phones, such as at night or during trips to the playground with their kids. During that time, app notifications will be blocked from showing up on the home screen. The phones screen can also be set to dim automat-ically just before bedtime.Apple also will give users reports on how much time they spend on apps and what gets them to check them constantly. They can set time limits on specific apps „ and set controls for kids.Last month, Google revealed plans to have Android phones go into shushŽ mode when placed face down on a table and have the screen show only greyscale colors late at night. Both companies efforts come as experts worry that all the flashy colors and beeps give users shortterm, feel-good rewards while increasing stress in the long run.The new Apple features previewed Monday wont reach users for a few months. Rather, they were shown to let software developers start building apps to make iPhones and other Apple devices more useful.And that underscores a paradox: Apple is introducing features to limit iPhone use at the same time its encouraging more use by building in more useful features.Other highlights from the show include: Better browsing privacyApple is taking a swipe at ubiquitous shareŽ but-tons created by Facebook and others to track your behavior online regardless of whether you click on them. The company says its shutting down that tracking through its Safari browser in an update to Mac and iOS devices, including iPhones and iPads. Apple senior vice president Craig Federighi said such tracking would be blocked by default. Even if users click to share an item, they will get a prompt with an option to prevent subsequent tracking.He also said Apple would crack down on so-called fingerprinting,Ž in which data companies identify specific devices by creating a unique fingerprint based on a devices particular configuration settings, installed fonts and plug-ins. Apple plans to instead send out generic data to such collectors, making a users device look just like any other Apple device. Federighi said the changes will make it dramatically more difficult for data companies to identify you and track you.ŽLast year, Apple added intelligent tracking preventionŽ that imposes time limits on tracking cookies and takes other measures to try to prevent advertising tech companies from following users around the web. Augmented reality gets augmentedApple rolled out new support for augmented reality applications as it unveiled a new format for digital objects that appear to live in the real world.The update comes as Apple tries to extend AR experiences to a broader population, rather than just hard-core, tech-savvy users. The company started that effort last year when it built AR tools into most iPhones and iPads; by contrast, Google had lim-ited that to niche Android phone models.Digital objects created with the new format, called USDZ, will work in Apples Safari browser, Messages and Mail apps, meaning AR isnt limited to stand-alone apps that people choose to download separately. The format will also get support in Adobes Cre-ative Cloud suite of apps for professional photog-raphers, videographers and designers. What remains to be seen is whether there is enough of a compelling reason for someone to use AR, even if its built-in to everyday apps.Apple also unveiled an app called MeasureŽ that measures boxes and other objects in the real world by pointing the camera at them.

** B4 Wednesday, June 6, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserThere are times when you have to ask yourself why everything around you is sinking like the Titanic. You have dreams and things that you want to achieve but there isnt any break in the drama in sight. The bills equal up to the same or more than your paycheck. The drama at work keeps you stressed and constantly thinking of finding a new job ... but you have changed jobs before and it wasnt any better afterward. You keep rowing and rowing but your boat never gets anywhere. In fact, you really would like a better boat but you just cant afford one. You plug the holes that constantly show up in your boat at the worst timing possible. How in the world are you ever going to get ahead? When the chips are down and the world is stacked against you, how are you going to make forward ground? What if the answer to everything is something you havent considered? What if the problem is you? The drama that surrounds you? The kind that gets so thick its hard to see straight sometimes? It comes from you. You are your worst enemy and you dont even see the process. But its really a simple concept: people who are hurting hurt other people. Hurting people disrupt the progress and happiness of others. Its almost like a bucket of crabs... you dont need a lid cause the crabs will constantly work to pull down any others that are trying to escape. You pull down the people around you because you are drowning in your failures, restless in your planning and lost in your faith. Perhaps the people that you surround yourself with are shallow in their pursuits. They are easy to be around because they dont question your core beliefs. They dont push you to grow and be better. Your relationships accept you for your compromises and your faults without looking deeper. Mainly because they dont want to look below the surface of their own waves. You constantly ask yourself what is wrong with everyone?Ž Yet, there is no clear answer. Because you are the problem rather than everyone else. Its a strong person who can sit down and understand that maybe, just maybe, they are the reason everything around them fails. You have poisoned the well and you continue to do so by ignoring the signs. Everyone has a bad day. A bad week. But when the problems are constant, when everyday you are banging your head against the wall ... It takes a big person to understand that there are issues that stem from you. When all else fails, you ask yourself... what now? It starts with realizing that you are unhappy with yourself. You have to love yourself before anyone around you can love you, and before you can truly love yourself. If you dont like what you see in the mirror then you are playing a part in your own misery and those around you, well, they are helping you along. How do you know if this applies to you? Well its really simple: Are you stonewalling the people who love you? Are you keeping those who know you and love you anyway, at arms distance? Not the people who see what you let them see, but the people who know the heart of you. Do you highlight their errors but ignore your own? Frankly it all comes down to ... what do you want for your future? Can you say you were wrong? That is the point where you know when you can face the battles ahead. Can you admit that you were part or the whole of the problem? Can you admit you were wrong and move forward? Taking ownership of the root of the problem is how you step forward. At some point, you will come to the understanding that everyone cant be against you ... so its you. You are the starting point and you are the only ending point. You can distort the truth, you can embellish the reality and you can strive to pass the blame but eventually the truth will catch up to you. Until you know yourself and love yourself, you cant love anyone else.
