This program just commenced in early August and depend ing on the results of the pilot program there is potential to continue to expand these recycling efforts into more of the Citys waterfront parks, commented Jennifer Bistyga, City of Boca Ratons Coastal Program Manager. The City hopes this collaboration will continue to make people aware of the opportunities to recycle materials as much as possible to make sure we all continue do our part in preserving our beaches and waterfront parks. The pilot project started with the placement of two 55-gallon bins: one at South Beach Park near the pavilion and the other at Silver Palm Park boat ramp. 4Ocean collects items from the bins each day and sorts through the material at their warehouse to determine all non-recycla ble material is removed and disposed of properly. methods for the City to re duce waste, increase recycling and improve our natural en vironment that can be scaled up is extremely important for the overall sustainability of the City, commented Lindsey Roland Ni eratka, City of Boca Ratons Sustainability on this pilot program to help Boca Raton identify one of those methods.

But their crusade is not from the pulpit or in the pews. taken to the streets to promote family literacy. Recognizing that families play a key role in helping children hone their literacy skills and foster a love of reading beginning at birth, the organiza tion recently convened Family Reading Matters at the Arts Garage and armed parents with the necessary tools. Greta Britt, founder of United Believers, thinks the home environment is critically important for younger read ers. She maintains that if students do not see people reading in the home, it may be harder to instill the idea of reading for pleasure. portive and understanding parents are critical in developing their childs reading when they are young, chances are they are not likely to do so when they get older. So, it all starts in home. To illustrate the importance of reading, a father and his two children reenacted the reading session he holds in his home at the Sept. 8 event. But what riveted the mes sage was a dramatization where seven children representing the All-AmericaCitys diversity held up signs showing the following tips for parents to moti vate and help children develop a love for reading: system that replaced Edline to allow parents, guardians and students to log in and get important information on academics and attendance) engaging, and parents can learn about what goes on in the classroom) United Believers is not alone in its quest. For six years, the Delray Beach Education Board has been holding Delray Reads to promote reading at an early age. Each year, in November, more than 250 community leaders and resi dents are dispersed to the local elemen tary schools to read to students for an hour.

The lesson learned is that when parents, regardless of their socioeconomic status, read with their young children, it increases the likelihood of them developing a love for reading. Use the Life You Still Have! you can read or hear these words, What you face may be unbearable at the moment, you may have lost enthusiasm for any new challenge, and your joy of living may be at an all-time low. Yet, even then, you are still breathing, and something can legitimately be expected of you!

However, you can renew your strength by positively thinking of something new whereby to make a valid contribution to fellow hu mans, even if in your own mind this exceeds your powers and abilities to deliver. Keep in mind that your capacity to think that your days have ended on earth, is in itself an indication that this is not so.

He said, For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many (Matthew 20:28, Mark 10:45). Jesus also made the curious statement, and whoever wants 20:27). These declarations were made by the One of whom the Bible says, He is only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.

Char ney Foundation, program with the University of Haifa laborative Research program incorporates to gain a better understanding of shark abundance and their distribution along the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Spanning about 965,000 square miles, the Mediterranean Sea is home to at least 47 species of sharks including blacktip, ham merhead, and dusky sharks. Knowledge about the factors that contribute to their aggregations in this region is key as they have begun to increase in numbers locally, in just the past few years. Stephen Kajiura, Ph.D., a professor of biological sciences in FAUs Charles E. Schmidt College of Science, is the principal investigator of the program and director of the Elasmobranch Research Laboratory at FAU. His area of exper tise is the sensory biology of sharks and stingrays with an emphasis on the electro sensory system. teams at FAU and Haifa University are collaborating on is integral to our understanding of marine life and how it functions, said Tzili Charney. For As part of the research collabo ration, Kajiura and colleagues from the University of Haifa will instrument the sharks with newly developed data logging cameras to collect environmental data such as water temperature, light level, salinity, and 3axis magnetic heading/in tensity. This information will help them to determine environmental parameters as sharks swim and will provide the most comprehensive view of their interactions in the wild. sharks are doing in their natural habitats, we need to see how they interact with various stimuli, such as other sharks, prey Kajiura. We also need to understand their preferred habitats by documenting environmental parameters, such as water temperature, depth and salinity. Kajiura and collaborators also will test sharks olfactory (sense of smell) sensitivity to stimuli, further explore how auditory capabilities to determine the range of frequencies they can hear, and test how they interact with other marine life. An overarching goal of the project is to develop techniques to keep sharks away from certain areas. To achieve this of various shark deterrents including the PVC pole barrier, which does not en tangle any sea life, does not corrode, is inexpensive and can easily be removed, and gal rents that produce Sharks are unique among sensory system that enables them to induction, said Kajiura. However, this hypothesized mechanism has never been understanding of their sensitivity to mag netic stimuli, we may be able to develop and test effective shark repellents. To examine olfaction, Kajiura and collaborators will test sharks physi ological responses to amino acids, prey tissue and other materials. They also will conduct a series of hearing tests and will employ behavioral assays to determine how sharks respond to stimuli. studies the massive seasonal migration of blacktip sharks in South Florida, which is the largest migration in U.S. coastal wa ters. He incorporates aerial surveys using camera as well as tagging and acoustic te lemetry to document migration patterns. Kajiura has been tracking blacktip sharks migration patterns for about a decade. Last year, he observed a dramatic decline in the thousands of blacktip sharks that migrate south every year. These blacktip sharks have an important ecological impact in South Florida, said Kajiura. Data from these studies, as well as the studies that we are going to conduct in the eastern Mediter ranean Sea, will enhance our ability to keep an eye on the oceans and census shark populations, and monitor animal responses to climate change. To facilitate collaboration, students from FAU and the University of Haifa will participate in a student ex will travel to the Leon H. Charney School of Marine Science to offer a condensed one-month graduate level course on the biology of sharks and their relatives the same course he teaches at FAU. We are very grateful to the Leon H. Charney Foundation for this most generous gift to Dr. Kajiura, which will foster collaboration among our universities and expose students to research opportunities that are not avail able at their home institution, said Ata Sarajedini, Ph.D., dean of FAUs Charles E. Schmidt College of Science. Further more, the additional data that will be col lected as a result of this collaboration will help to preserve vital shark species in the eastern Mediterranean Sea and protect humans from unwanted encounters in the wild.

HomeNinja is a platform that provides the average buyer, seller or flipper with a simple and user-friendly outlet where they can communicate directly without the use of a realtor. Co-founders Oshins and Post designed the ingenious mobile applica tion that eliminates the middleman in real estate transactions, the realtor, by providing a platform that all potential homeowners can download to make purchasing and selling property effort less and less expensive by eliminating commissions. We wanted to create a plat form where an individual selling their home are able to upload images, videos and descriptions of the property, sell directly to interested buyers, allowing both parties involved to save thousands of dollars, said Post, co-founder of HomeNinja. There is no cost to download and utilize the APP, nor a fee to use the services provided by HomeNinja, allowing both buyers and sellers to save thousands of dollars while swiping through available homes on the real estate market to con nect with a house that meets all their qualifications. HomeNinja offers both a chance to test the market and com plete transactions without paying a real estate brokers commission, saving home sellers and buyers both time and money with the added advantage of not becoming a victim of a stagnant MLS. Buyers are even able to prequalify for a home within the Ho meNinja platform, making purchasing the home of your dreams even easier. The future of real estate may have sprung from right here in Boca Raton. Boca Raton Entrepreneurs Launch Innovative New Mobile Application HomeNinja

FAU had a 7-2 shot advantage at the half, and continued to press after, having many opportunities to extend the lead, but they were turned away or off target. On the other side, UAB (4-4-1, 1-1-0 C-USA) ended up with six second half shots, but they too could not keep it on frame, with only one save necessary by FAU goalkeeper Jennifer Ocampo. a good scouting report, good video high lights, we kind of knew what they were about and what we needed to try to do to be successful, said Head Coach Patrick Baker. We scored a great goal, Thelma (Hermannsdottir) had a great run, served the ball through the box, Miracle (Porter) recycled it with an even better service for take a quality goal to beat this team, theyre well-coached, theyre well-drilled (and) have a lot of good players.
