Slothy Sunday Bilbo the Sloth SuperDad

first_imgToday is a celebration of all fathers — young and old, short and tall, by blood or simply by love. It’s a special day.In the world of wildlife, this usually means showing praise to the animal kingdom’s most admirable fathers: the emperor penguin, who balances an egg on his feet in subzero temperatures to keep it warm, or the male seahorse, who can carry up to 1,000 eggs in his belly and then give birth to them. These dads, amongst others, help keep the circle of life spinning.Here at the Toucan Rescue Ranch, we want to honor our very own fatherly figure, Bilbo the two-fingered sloth. With a story that starts like those of many of our rescued sloths, Bilbo was found abandoned on a golf course in Jacó, Puntarenas, by a woman on her morning walk. He was lying motionless in a sand trap, covered in ants. The woman quickly called TRR and drove him to our headquarters in San Isidro, Heredia.Once in our clinic, our vets noticed his legs were struggling to function correctly, so they started physical therapy to get him back in motion. When they felt he was ready, he was brought out to exercise with the other sloths. Juveniles are put together to offer comfort and companionship as they grow up without a mother, although Bilbo was a much older orphan than his buddies on the jungle gym. Bilbo with his adopted family. Via Toucan Rescue Rach.Over time, our vets noticed that Bilbo was reaching out to the other baby sloths — and not just to get a share of their zygia leaves (a two-fingered sloth’s favorite)! He was actually cleaning their faces and licking them as if they were his own offspring. The baby sloths started to climb all over him, and Bilbo was patient with them, tolerating them even when they clumsily clambered onto his back. He became the “foster dad” of the juvenile sloths at TRR, holding them when they were near and offering them the nurturing love they were missing, which is really what being a good father is all about — giving and receiving love, even at times when it’s not necessarily your responsibility.Together with The Sloth Institute, Bilbo has been relocated from the TRR headquarters to the Release Site in Manuel Antonio as part of our Saving Sloths Together program. Bilbo is now at an adult weight and is practicing his wild skills in a pre-release enclosure!Although he is surely missed by his “children” back in San Isidro, Bilbo has served a great purpose by taking on one of the most difficult but rewarding jobs in the world … being a father.Happy Father’s Day! Thank you to Bilbo and all fathers around the world!— Ally Chamberlin is a Marketing Intern at Toucan Rescue Ranch. This article was produced by The Toucan Rescue Ranch.

Mortgage Housing Optimism Stays Strong … for Now

first_img Share in Daily Dose, Featured, journal, Market Studies, News, Origination Home Prices HOME survey Housing Inventory Housing Optimism inventory shortages NAR Survey National Association of Realtors 2018-06-25 David Wharton When it comes to Americans’ optimism about buying homes, Q2’s numbers might as well be cribbed from the National Association of Realtors’ Q1 report. NAR’s second quarter Housing Opportunities and Market Experience (HOME) survey found that 68 percent of people think it’s a good time to buy—statistically, pretty much the same as in the first quarter.That optimism has remained steady among homeowners in particular. As with last quarter, 39 percent strongly agree that now is a good time to buy, while 29 percent moderately agree. Among renters, however, those positive feelings dropped from 55 to 49 percent in Q2. Optimism is highest among older buyers (65 or over) and those living in the South and Midwest regions (73 and 71 percent, respectively).NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said affordability and low inventory are eroding buyer confidence. “Inventory remains the driving force in real estate, affecting everything for rising prices to household formation. Improving supply conditions is critical to improving buyer optimism and helping to remove some of the barriers holding back potential first-time buyers,” Yun said.Sixty-eight percent of those surveyed said they believe that home prices have gone up in their area within the last 12 months. That’s up from 63 percent last quarter. Meanwhile, 55 percent also believe that home prices will keep going up in their communities through year’s end. That’s about where it was last quarter, too.Those numbers also largely mirror optimism about the economy in general. According to the report, almost 60 percent said the economy will stay strong. Most of the optimists are in rural areas, where 63 percent said the economy is improving.The largest change in perception from Q1 regarded mortgages. Forty-six percent of those surveyed said they do not believe it would be difficult to obtain a mortgage. While still less than half, that number is up from 36 percent last quarter. “This is most likely a reflection of the current positive outlook on the direction of the economy,” Yun said. “Healthy job creation and faster wage growth mean that homeownership is viewed as a more attainable goal than it was a year ago.” But optimism for several years ahead was a little less bouncy. Asked if homeownership will be easier or harder to attain for future generations, 73 percent said it will be harder for future generations to purchase a home, compared to 11 percent who said it will be easier. On the other side of the table, 75 percent believe that now is a good time to sell. Twenty-nine percent overall said that now is not a good time to sell a home. Among homeowners, that number was 19 percent.“Hopefully, this strong seller optimism will lead to an increase in inventory later on in the year,” said Yun.center_img Mortgage, Housing Optimism Stays Strong … for Now June 25, 2018 545 Views last_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Chris Johnson: Was a bit of a surprise when he came back for another season in what was bound to be a decreased role. Uneven start to a year that was cut short due to an injury that landed him on injured reserve. Can he find more carries elsewhere?Kevin Minter: Played well, finishing second on the team in tackles while posting a career-best 3.5 sacks. Has value, but will the Cardinals want more speed and range at his middle linebacker position and another team might value him more.Earl Watford: Arizona’s “Swiss Army Knife” along the offensive line, he has filled in at multiple positions but has yet to truly establish himself as a starting lineman. Arizona’s newfound depth up front, along with Watford’s desire to start, may lead him elsewhere.Not coming backMike Jenkins: Was brought in during camp and seemed to have a shot at earning significant reps until a broken hand ended his season before it could even begin.Alex Okafor: A couple years ago he was one of the team’s rising young pass rushers, but uneven performances and shaky off-the-field issues led to his role being diminished. Played well on special teams, but will want more than he can get in Arizona. Whichever direction GM Steve Keim, Arians and the rest of the organization takes will be made more difficult by the fact that the team has a substantial number of free agents, many of whom played key roles for the team in 2016 or previous seasons.What will the Cardinals do? Well, much of their plan will likely be dictated to the kind of offers their own free agents receive.For some of them, there is probably a mutual understanding that it is best for both sides to move on from each other. But for others, they may have professed a desire to return, and it would be wrong to call that into question. But money and opportunity talk in the NFL, and if a player finds more with another team, it would not be a surprise to see them bolt.With that in mind, here is one man’s guess as to what will happen with the Cardinals whose contracts are up.Note: * indicates player is a restricted free agentThey’ll be backChandler Jones: Had 11.5 sacks in first season with Cardinals. Team did not acquire him with idea of being a one-year rental. Arians has said they would use franchise tag, if necessary, though hope has been that the sides could come to a long-term agreement.Tony Jefferson: Did not get the contract he wanted last year and turned that motivation into a career season. May have more value in Arizona than with another team and can’t see Cardinals parting with another key member of secondary, though money talks and that could make things interesting. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Marcus Cooper: Led the team with four interceptions and was named a Pro Bowl alternate. Struggled at times, but when you play opposite Patrick Peterson, the ball will come your way often.Taylor Boggs*: Coaches seemed impressed with his progression and are intrigued with his potential.Brian Dixon*: Added from the Saints’ practice squad late in the season and has been a productive special teams player in the past. Doesn’t hurt to keep him through the offseason and bring him to training camp.Darren Fells*: Has shown flashes of being an above-average tight end but injuries and inconsistency have held him back. Not a bad player, though, and seems unlikely he will receive a big offer from another team.Jeremy Ross: Caught four passes — including a touchdown — as he was pressed into action with the Cardinals struggling at receiver. Big bodied player who should make it to training camp, at least.Wouldn’t bet on itCalais Campbell: Can you imagine the Cardinals without Campbell, who followed up a pair of Pro Bowl seasons with an eight-sack campaign in 2016? Still an impact player, good chance he will find a more lucrative contract offer elsewhere.D.J. Swearinger: Played very well in first full season with Cardinals, showing solid coverage ability as well as the big-hitting style he was known for. Tough to imagine his best offer coming from Arizona, though if Jefferson does not return Swearinger would move into the “probable” category. Top Stories Andre Ellington: Once the centerpiece of Arizona’s offense, Ellington turned into a bit player who struggled in his primary role as a kick returner. Not seen as a lead back, and in Arizona, nowhere for him to play. Chandler Catanzaro*: Did not have a particularly good season, though did have some big moments. Arians has expressed confidence, though if nothing else, no reason not to bring him back as part of any camp competition.Sio Moore: A late-season pickup, Moore played well over the final few weeks as injuries pressed him into the lineup.Probably returningJermaine Gresham: Took less money to come back to the Cardinals on a one-year deal. Played especially well in season’s second half and was cited as an emotional leader for the team.Frostee Rucker: Solid veteran whose impact was more as a leader than statistical. Has dealt with injuries last couple of seasons that have impacted his on-field performance. At 33, does he want to continue his career?A.Q. Shipley: Finally got his chance to be a full-time starter and was only offensive lineman to get through season without injury. Solid player who can play guard, too. Would role be the same in 2017?Zaviar Gooden*: Contributed on special teams. Intriguing young player who the team has no reason to part with.Stepfan Taylor: Solid special teams player who never carved out a significant role with the offense. Has value, though, as he can help out in a pinch. With Super Bowl LI now a thing of the past, it is officially time to move on to the 2017 season.For the Arizona Cardinals, that means making a good many decisions this offseason.Coming off a campaign that began with Super Bowl expectations but finished with a 7-8-1 record, the goal may not necessarily be to rebuild the roster, but instead tweak it just enough to get it back into the postseason.“Really to sign our own guys,” head coach Bruce Arians said of what his team’s biggest offseason need is. “If we can get our own guys back and not have to teach a lot of new guys things.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Arizona Cardinals’ Chandler Jones watches the scoreboard during the second half of an NFL preseason football game against the Oakland Raiders Friday, Aug. 12, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz.

Published: June 4 2014 2:31 am Related News The devastating storm that claimed 14 lives in the national capital last Friday was a “perfect recipe for a blackout in Delhi and the entire northern region” according to Praveer Sinha chief executive officer and executive director of Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL) The northern electricity grid had tripped because of underdrawal as several connecting towers and at least 68 transmission lines collapsed because of the raging winds which exceeded 75 kmph in some areas Before the storm hit the total load in Delhi was 5200 MW During the storm the load fell within a few minutes — at the rate 200 MW per minute According to officials “this was a perfect case of northern grid failure” but the system survived because of “combined efforts of Northern Regional Load Dispatch Centre transmission distribution and generation companies” “The severity of the storm on the power network could be gauged from the fact that it resulted in the tripping of 68 transmission lines in the northern grid The load loss was at the rate of?? 200 MW per minute resulting in a northern grid load loss of about 8000 MW including 4000 MW in Delhi alone TPDDL also lost 1050 MW during the storm” Sinha told Newsline The crisis was managed because of an effective disaster management system contingency planning inter-grid connectivity backfeeding and running the network on emergency mode which restored the power supply in TPDDL’s area in record time of 36 hours Sinha said India has five electricity grids — northern eastern northeastern southern and western — run by the Power Grid Corporation which operates more than 95000 circuit km of transmission lines All the grids are inter-connected; except the southern grid In 2012 the northern grid had collapsed due to low frequency on July 30 Another failure four days later had led to a cascading effect and the collapse of three more grids plunging as many as 21 states into darkness The storm last Friday came from the Hisar-Sonepat side and first hit the north and northwest parts of the city before before spreading across NCR says a release by TPDDL Sinha said that over 1000 trees fell on the power lines across north Delhi alone The storm damaged Delhi Transco’s five towers on the 400/220 KV Bawana-Rohini line and two towers from DTL’s 400/220 KV Mandola-Gopalpur line “The TPDDL network suffered majorly because around 500 fully grown Eucalyptus trees fell and that damaged nearly 250 low tension and high tension electricity poles in its network spread across 510 sq km These Eucalyptus trees are a big hazard and when they fall on the power lines they completely snap power supply” Sinha said A stock taking by the discom revealed broken conductor lines at several locations hundreds of broken LT/HT ABC at different locations several damaged distribution transformers and broken guard wires which hold the poles in place at various locations At present the total transmission restoration from Delhi Transco is only 50 per cent because of the damage to towers The power supply situation however has been normalised due to “immediate activation” of the discoms disaster management plan and “quick interconnections between grids and back feeding and the PGCIL Emergency Restoration System (ERS) for early restoration of affected lines” For all the latest Delhi

particular intervention merits specific mention: Dialysis for end-stage renal disease (Illustration: C R Sasikumar) Related News Many hoped for Budget 2016 to be arenewed opportunity for the implementation of universal health coverage These hopes had been fuelled by the rumblings from the ruling party about a universal health assurance plan and rumours of a significant increase in the financial allocation to the health sector The actual budget made for sobering reading; in terms of its meagreallocation and lack of detail this was surely an anaemic budget More disappointingly I fear it will fail in achieving its most important stated goal of addressing catastrophic health expenditure Although the increase in the total allocation to the health sector represents an increase of 14 per cent from the previous year this is only because of the significant cut in last year’s budget and in real terms is even less than what was allocated in 2014-15 This allocation will do little to improve India’s abysmal global ranking on public expenditure on health The specific allocations to the National Health Mission the flagship programme for the public healthcare delivery system represent an insignificant change and possibly even a reduction from the previous year It is notable that this amount is less than that committed for the recapitalisation of public-sector banks; in effect the government has put yet more money into banks that have performed badly than on fixing the public healthcare system which is witnessing a steady haemorrhage of the population to the private sector It is perplexing then how this budget is expected to address the goal of reducing catastrophic health expenditure which the finance minister rightly asserted was “the single most important cause of unforeseen out-of-pocket expenditure which pushes lakhs of households below the poverty line every year” Apart from the low investment in the public healthcare system there are other troubling facts or lack of them which indicate the prescription of the budget will not cut the burden of catastrophic health expenditure First the beefed-up health insurance scheme needs to cover out-patient expenditure not least on drugs and diagnostics as these account for the major share of out-of-pocket health expenditure In the absence of a structural reform of the health insurance scheme one must assume it will continue to only insure in-patient care Second there needs to be a strengthening of the mechanism to hold the private sector accountable or else even the increased insurance cover will simply be swallowed up into the bottomless pit of irrational and unethical medicine led by unnecessary hospital admissions and procedures This would end up as one more example of public money flowing to private hands without any efforts to reduce costs or ensure transparency Finally if the health insurance scheme only targets those who live below the poverty line the significant impact of catastrophic health expenditure on the impoverishment of those who live above this arbitrary line would not be dented at all The budget disappoints in at least three other respects as well First in the context of the abysmal contribution of health research in India either to global science or to solve the vexing problems facing our healthcare system the government has allocated just 29 per cent of its health budget to research Apart from this allocation being far below what other middle-income countries invest in health research this pittance points to a striking contrast from the government’s policy to “make in India” and promote science and innovation It seems that all of these mantras are reserved for profit-making enterprises rather than social sectors despite the fact that high-quality health research can in fact achieve both the goals of social advancement and scientific innovation Second amidst the lack of detail on any element of health spending one particular intervention merits specific mention: Dialysis for end-stage renal disease While I applaud this not least as my own mother’s dialysis has bled my family’s economic security what is curious is why just this one procedure is fished out from the ocean of interventions for chronic diseases including insulin for diabetes (the leading cause of end-stage renal disease) or why the critically important investments needed to prevent these chronic diseases are not even mentioned My third grudge is that yet again beedis the most widely used tobacco product in India now well recognised as being just as deadly if not more as ordinary cigarettes escape taxation One commentator suggested this was to protect lakhs of workers in the beedi industry and I wondered how this might square with the loss of income consequent to the deaths of lakhs of those who consume this deadly product The failure to hike taxes on the high-sugar food industry whose products include cola beverages even though their association with diabetes and obesity is now well documented remains perplexing Instead it seems the government is enthusiastic to fund the expensive dialysis that is needed as a result of the consumption of these products So yet another year goes by when we have squandered an opportunity to address one of India’s most shameful truths: A country enjoying high levels of economic growth producing large numbers of health professionals and volumes of cheap drugs and boasting amazing ingenuity for creative innovations to address health problems at low-cost also has the dubious distinction of being one of the most regressive healthcare systems of all middle-income countries While universal health coverage has been a mantra for several years no government has yet taken the firm steps needed either in terms of adequate financing or re-designing the architecture of the healthcare system We are back to hoping that next year turns out to be a better one for India’s health
