Through Cooperative Extension offices in almost every county, the University of Georgia helps Georgians become healthier, more financially independent and more environmentally responsible. Whether you’d like to build a safer environment for your children, deal with the stresses of daily school life, teach your children to avoid chronic diseases like diabetes with healthy food or train food handlers in your cafeteria, Extension is the place to start. Congress established the Cooperative Extension Service in 1914 to deliver information from land-grant colleges and universities to all Americans. Extension continues to fulfill that basic mission, and one of the most important parts is helping our schools improve student achievement. Cooperative Extension is an educational network that combines the expertise and resources of federal, state and local governments to improve people’s lives. We extend the reach of the University of Georgia to connect you with knowledge, research and resources in the areas of youth, family and agricultural needs. We provide answers to the public with the research of the University of Georgia to back us up. In this day and time of information overload and the easy access to the Internet, you should always remember to fact-check sources. As UGA Extension professionals, we are required to base our solutions to client issues on research, not home remedies and hearsay. Whether recommending the safest method possible to control fire ants, or showing homeowners how to test their home for radon, you can trust that our information is research based. And when it comes to your child, the Georgia 4-H program is the place to go to find caring adults to help your child develop his or her leadership potential within.
CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle refuted point-by-point longstanding misunderstandings about credit unions in an appearance on “Bloomberg Surveillance” Friday.During his appearance , Nussle cleared up some common misconceptions about credit unions, and explained why the cooperative model is best suited to meet the financial needs of the underserved.“What we do may look like a bank, but how we do it and who we do it for are completely different than a bank model,” Nussle said. “How we do it is not-for-profit. All the banks are for-profit.”“It’s not about how big they are, it’s who they serve and how they do it,” he said. “But size and scale can really help you support under-served populations and go into areas with a branch (where) maybe you couldn’t go before.”Nussle pointed to several examples of how the cooperative model better serves consumers. continue reading » 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Summer is over and fall is upon us. Now is the perfect opportunity to look back at the successes of April’s financial literacy programs and make sure those successes continue throughout the rest of the year. Financial education matters more than four weeks a year.As the financial landscape is changing, making financial decisions is getting much more strenuous for consumers. Recent trends have put more financial burden on the shoulders of consumers, and there are ways you can learn how to deal with these changes.We could all use financial advice from time to time, and your credit union has the opportunity to be there for its members.When members have questions, it is imperative that credit unions be there to empower them by providing the relevant education. It is not enough to simply offer a program on budgeting, saving and investing and assume the knowledge will linger until the participant needs it. An ideal program would be made available at any time, whenever members need it.Remember that improving financial literacy will have a profound impact on credit union members and their ability to be prepared for whatever the future may hold for them. Providing these types of programs and services offers the added benefit of nurturing your existing relationship with a member and ensuring you have a place in their financial future. 238SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

In the middle of this dance floor, a girl approached a guy, legs slightly spread, while slapping her thighs with the back of her hands while looking him in the eye.My ecologist friend, in his “Darwinian” mindset, jokingly exclaimed: “Oh wow, she’s presenting!”You don’t have to emulate an Animal Planet mating documentary to get a guy to approach you when you’re out, but body language is important. You have to give a guy an opening, and make yourself available.I want my approach to appear to be well-timed, and I don’t like it when I feel like I’m interrupting. Sometimes the situation lends itself to an approach: there’s something extraordinary to talk about, or we just bump into each other. Pay attention to your actions when you’re out. If you want guys to approach you, are you making it easy on them — are you “available”? Some girls might want the guy to “work” as part of the approach, but for every one of you who makes it tough for a guy to approach, there are women who make it easier to approach that a guy might go for instead.Here are a few things women do that prevent guys from approaching them:INTIMIDATIONLots of FriendsWhen girls are in a group, I know that I’m going to be “evaluated” as soon as I walk away. It’s tough enough to walk up to one girl, let alone a group.Too HotIf she’s super-hot, sometimes I assume I have no chance or I’m just plain intimidated. Most guys will give it the old college try though. This, by the way, is the best reason for your ego why guys aren’t approaching: “I’m just so hot I’m intimidating.”UNATTRACTIVE APPEARANCEDancing on Tables (aka Super-Drunk Girl)One night, we were out and a girl intermittently stood up on the seat of her booth and did stripper-type dances. The guys in the bar looked, but never approached. It’s tough to approach a whirling dervish and no one could take her seriously. And sometimes the “too drunk” girl gets approached by guys who are interested in one thing only.Looking SloppyI don’t usually approach girls who don’t look stylish and put together. Now, if you want to keep guys away from you, doing the “celeb in public homeless look” might be a good strategy.Looking Angry/SnobbySmiling and eye contact is inviting, while anger, and looking like you’re too good for everyone, drives people away. Try to give off positive vibes, and more people will approach.TAKENWith a Guy in Any CapacityYou appear to be taken if you arrive with guys, or meet guys while you’re out. Guys have no way of knowing if you’re “with” a guy. Some guys might ask, but some might just move on to someone who looks more available. RingNow I’ll admit that I’m clueless, even for a guy. I’m not sure about the wedding ring/engagement rules: which hand/finger gets the ring? I know one has a big diamond, and one looks like a simple ring. But unmarried women wear all sorts of rings. Your ring that looks like a wedding ring might be keeping guys away (or maybe stupid guys like me, which is probably a good thing).DO NOT DISTURBBusyIt’s easier to approach a girl who looks bored, like she wants someone to talk to. In a café, if she’s reading a book, or has her face in her laptop, I assume she’s busy and doesn’t want to deal with my stupid pick-up attempt. In a bar, if she seems content doing whatever she’s doing, I won’t want to interrupt.Tough to CatchI’ve devised strategic plans to make a move, waiting for a girl to go to the bar, or bathroom. But when she finally gets up she walks too fast, or takes “bodyguards” (tons of friends) with her. Bottom line, some women just don’t give that opening physically for the approach. Remember, your migratory patterns might be exactly what that guy is waiting for, so be on the lookout when you’re on the move.Room PositioningIf you’re in the corner all night, or buried behind chairs and tables, you not only cut yourself off from the rest of the world, but some guys don’t want to slalom obstacles to get to you. If you want guys to approach you, you might want to move or try out some other spots.Do you agree with my list above? What actions do you think deter guys from approaching you? What actions make a guy tough to approach?by Rich Santos, Marie Claire Sharing is caring! Share
Loading… Pjanic posted a message on his Twitter account, reported via Mundo Deportivo, thanking Juventus fans, and confirming he wants to help the club win a first European title since 1996.“Thinking about it makes me shiver, as my Serie A experience with Juventus comes to an end,” he posted.“But it not time to say goodbye yet, I intend to stay here until August 23.”The Champions League final is currently scheduled for August 23 at Benfica’s Estadio da Luz, as part of the competition’s reformatted single leg structure from the quarter finals onwards.

Statewide— The American Red Cross has extended its urgent call for donors of all blood types to give blood or platelets. With influenza escalating across the country and preventing some donors from giving, and winter weather threatening to cancel blood drives, the Red Cross now has a critical shortage of type O blood and urgently needs donors to restock the shelves. Currently, the Red Cross has less than a three-day supply of type O blood available for patient emergencies and medical treatments. Type O positive blood is the most transfused blood type and can be given to Rh-positive patients of any blood type. While just 7% of the U.S. population has type O negative blood, it can be transfused to patients with any blood type and is what hospital staff reach for during emergencies when there isn’t time to determine a patient’s blood type.Every day, the Red Cross must collect nearly 13,000 blood donations and more than 2,600 platelet donations for patients who rely on blood to survive. Shortfalls in donations can cause delays in essential medical care for patients like 12-year-old Dagan Hawkins.Diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in November, Dagan has required platelet and blood transfusions during his cancer treatments. “There was a time when they needed to have blood products delivered from another hospital because they were unavailable there,” said Dustin Hawkins, Dagan’s father.Donors of all blood types – especially types O positive and O negative – are urged to make an appointment to give blood now using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.
Press Association “Life of a keeper, particularly an English one, is very different to an outfield player where you get 25 squad places with rotation and maybe European games if you are at one of the bigger clubs. “You get the need for a lot of players whereas with a keeper there are not many teams where you have two first-choice keepers – here is one of them. “You see people saying it is up to us if we stay or go but sometimes it really isn’t. “If I get told I am here next season then I am here next season and I will do my utmost for the team. “If I get told I am here next season and I am on the bench then that is my life and you have got to take it how it is. “That is something I have learned from this season as much as anything that it is not all laid for you on a red carpet.” The 33-year-old joined the Hoops last summer and was soon followed to the club by Brazil international Julio Cesar, who spent much of the season as first-choice goalkeeper. With Cesar expected to leave Loftus Road in the summer, Green ended the season as number one and is now readying himself to play in the npower Championship. “I see my future wherever I am told it is really,” he told the club’s official website. Robert Green insists he is happy to stay at relegated QPR and fight for a starting place.
