Calvert worked with the Texas Legislature to enable the creation of the Solid Waste Management Program in one of the county’s most criminal areas, which led to dramatic improvements in the neighborhood’s quality of life – a decrease in crime 54%; a 74% decrease in illegal landfills; and a 75% decrease in animal protection calls.

“This efficient work has not only helped improve the neighborhood, it has also saved county ratepayers significant dollars,” Commissioner Calvert said. “I believed we were creating a national model and now the National Counties Association has validated it.”

Watch a video documenting Commissioner Calvert’s work in the Camelot neighborhood: https://youtu.be/VPqHPkcFbcQ)

Camelot II had had problems with illegal dumping since the late 1990s. With no mandatory trash collection for the neighborhoods, Commissioner Calvert had to convince the Texas House of Representatives, Texas Senate, and Governor to agree to give him and the county new authority to deal with waste and illegal landfills. Once the legislation was passed, Commissioner Calvert extended the initial pilot program to the Glen, Crownwood and Candlewood subdivisions.

NACO is nationally recognizing Commissioner Calvert for his leadership in improving food security for thousands of Bexar County residents during the pandemic.

Commissioner Calvert led the way by securing $2 million in federal funding to ensure residents facing supply chain disruptions do not go hungry during the pandemic. His leadership led to 25,000 pounds. super greens and fruits being available to residents struggling to pay for groceries – putting Calvert in front of the economic reality of inflation, which is now the top concern according to polls of American voters.

With long lines around the Alamodome with thousands of citizens seeking food handouts at the height of the pandemic, Commissioner Calvert will receive a second National Award for Greenies Urban Farm from the National Association of Counties. Commissioner Calvert challenged Commissioner Kevin Wolff, who said a food source program was unnecessary.

The Greenies were also recognized at Texas A&M University in College Station for the state’s highest award for “superior service” to emerging issues from the Texas Agricultural Extension Service. The Greenies is under construction, and an additional $14 million in funding will allow the 10-acre lot to house nearly 25 Bexar County Agricultural Extension Service employees. The Urban Farm will also bring income to Bexar County through a 300-person event center being built along Menger Creek, an eyesore once known as “The Goonies.” Commissioner Calvert renamed the property “The Greenies”. The Greenies have worked with more than 200 nonprofit organizations and provide the San Antonio Food Bank with fresh produce grown and harvested in partnership with San Antonio’s Master Gardeners for residents across the county.

MUMBAI, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, May 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — In recent years, consumer awareness has increased, especially with Gen Z using various types of social media to express socio-political movements. According to a survey, 72% of respondents said they now buy more green products than five years ago. Nearly half of popular fast-fashion retailers saw a significant drop in revenue in 2021. The fashion sector is one of the key industries that has been heavily criticized by the raucous and awake population. Fashion companies are now adapting to the changing political landscape in the face of a strong backlash against diversity, ethics, sustainability and inclusivity.

When it comes to online retail, inclusivity and diversity are two of the most important factors for fashion shoppers. Brands aware of the ever-growing need For the future of fashion, body inclusion, ethnic diversity and gender representation are necessary.

According to a spokesperson for the company, “Since I was a child, I have been given the narrative of Eurocentric beauty and slim proportions. I had no idea how devastating it was to my self-esteem until ‘until I see a truly confident man. woman defying societal norms on her own. Fashion should reflect her audience rather than the other way around. We want every woman who buys our clothes to feel safe and beautiful in her skin while being able to express themselves through design.”

Evening dresses, summer dresses, street style clothes and swimwear for women are all available on the online shopping site.

How researchers created 3D models of the largest collection of Native American rock art https://euskalabereak.net/how-researchers-created-3d-models-of-the-largest-collection-of-native-american-rock-art/ Sun, 08 May 2022 11:02:50 +0000 https://euskalabereak.net/how-researchers-created-3d-models-of-the-largest-collection-of-native-american-rock-art/ The researchers used 3D scanning technologies to reveal what they say is the largest collection of ancient Native American rock art discovered in North America.

The researchers used 3D scanning technologies to reveal what they say is the largest collection of ancient Native American rock art discovered in North America. The drawings were discovered in the “19th unnamed cave” in Alabama in the United States. Its location remains secret and it was arbitrarily named for the same reason: to protect it from vandalism and other forms of destruction, as it is too valuable an artifact.

The researchers documented their findings in a research paper titled “Discovering Ancient Rock Art Using 3D Photogrammetry: Pre-contact Native American Mud Glyphs from the Unnamed 19th Cave, Alabama,” published in the journal Antiquity.

“They probably represent figures from previously unknown religious stories, probably from the Middle Woodland period. The most striking aspects of these rock art images are their size and context. Among the mud glyphs of the unnamed 19th cave are the largest known rock art images in North America. They are so large that the creators had to create the images without being able to see them in their entirety. Thus, the makers worked from their imaginations, rather than from an unfettered visual point of view,” the researchers wrote in the paper.

The 19th unnamed cave and rock art location

The 19th unnamed cave comprises over 5 kilometers of underground passages with an entrance 219 meters above mean sea level. This entrance is approximately 10 meters high and 15 meters wide. An intermittent stream flows from the cave, due to which no intact archaeological material has survived at the cave entrance.

From the “main hall” of the cave, a passage rises to a 25 x 20 meter chamber bounded by lava formations. Mud glyphs are inscribed on the ceiling of this “hall” which is only 125 centimeters above the ground at its highest.

3D photogrammetry: how researchers created a 3D model of massive art

In late 2017, Stephen Alvarez of the Ancient Art Archive capitalized on advances in 3D photogrammetry to create a high-resolution, three-dimensional topographic record of the glyphs drawn in the chamber. Photogrammetry is a software-based 3D modeling technique that uses photographs.

You start by taking many photos of the target object or location, with each photo overlapping the next by about 60-80%. The photogrammetry software then compares the images and overlaps and calculates the camera positions used to produce the images. The software then triangulates the pixels in 3D space to create a “point cloud”.

This cloud is rendered in a very precise mesh of the modeled surface and the mesh is textured with the texture of the original images to make it look like a photorealistic 3D model. The model resulting from this technique is then calibrated by measuring the known distance. For the unnamed 19th cave, the researchers created three linked models: one of the cave’s undecorated passages and two of the carved ceiling.

The first overhead model was photographed using a Canon 5D Mark IV DSLR, which has a 30.4 megapixel sensor, and a Canon L-series 24-70mm f2.8 lens set to 24mm. For the first model, the researchers used tilted lighting that made some glyphs more obvious while obscuring others. But that wasn’t a problem as the first model was created to provide a “roadmap” for the higher resolution second model.

For the second model, the researchers used a flat light and a Canon 5DS DSLR camera with a 50 megapixel sensor and a Sigma 24mm Art Series lens. These photographs were taken with an 80% overlap and were used to create a very high resolution model of the cave ceiling. The third model was of the entire space of the cave from the entrance to the section with the drawings. This was a lower resolution model taken with the first model’s camera and far fewer photographs.

Regional District of Nanaimo Alerts Residents to Ongoing Collection Cart Scam

The caller is impersonating an RDN official



The Regional District of Nanaimo is alerting residents to an ongoing scam.

The RDN received a notice from a resident who was called by an individual posing as a Regional District representative. They then told the resident that they owed money for curbside solid waste collection carts.

The RDN does not charge residents for curbside carts and service charges are only collected directly by the RDN or through utility bills from municipal partners.

The resident followed the RDN’s recommended course of action, which is to hang up and call the RDN directly. Residents are advised not to provide credit card or other personal information unless you have appealed to the RDN. Residents can also report suspicious calls to the RCMP or the fraud hotline at 1-888-495-8501.

The public can contact the RDN with questions about the services or other questions at 250-390-4111, toll-free at 1-877-607-4111 or requests@rdn.bc.ca.

the Heart of Education Award for CCSD Teachers is a special honor to celebrate the unsung heroes of Clark County in Las Vegas. Organized by the Smith Center for Performing Arts, with support from the Rogers Foundation and the help of the public, this annual award is an honor of which internationally acclaimed artist Elena Bulatova is honored to be a part. The event celebrates educators who not only go above and beyond, but truly make a difference in the lives of their students. The purpose of this award is to show recognition of outstanding efforts in education and to appreciate teachers, a group of individuals who do not always receive the gratitude to which they are duly entitled.

This recognition of merit touches Bulatova closely, as she contributes significantly to philanthropy and community events. Bulatova believes in having a positive, meaningful and lasting impact on the Las Vegas community. With this in mind, Elena Bulatova is proud to donate 20 works of art from her distinguished “Toy Collection” to honor these chosen educators.

Elena Bulatova’s “Toy Collection” represents the most beautiful days of childhood. The playfulness of the color, the nostalgic reference to size, and the delightful nod to childhood shapes all serve to see the world through the bright eyes of an inspired child. Youth, education and orientation are important to Bulatova, as she started painting at a young age, and the arts were an integral part of her growing up time.

The 20 works of art donated by Elena Bulatova to The Heart of Education award serve as a positive symbol to commemorate these teachers who shape the lives of young people. As Bulatova herself said about creating works of art, the same can be said of educators: “When you like something, you appreciate it, and you never work a day in your life .”

“Love expressed for Love alone, || Hit a universe for love || Expanding, expanding forever— || What alternative to love? || Develop and hold things together, || Not dark, just love implications.

Published by Page Publishing, Margaret Adams’ incredible poetry appeals to readers of all backgrounds. From personal fears to the power of close friendships and the natural beauty of the Earth, Adams delivers thoughtful messages to any reader who opens their minds and hearts to his words.

NEWARK, Del., May 2, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — ouilglasses continues to expand its growing collection of affordable eyewear for men and women, recently launching a wide selection of Reading glasses in a convenient and simple shopping experience.

Eyestrain is a very common vision problem, especially for those who spend more and more time on digital devices. The Center for Health Research found nearly two-thirds of Americans report experiencing symptoms of digital eye strain. Reading glasses combined with blue light protection can greatly relieve symptoms of eye strain from reading on digital screens. All Yesglasses readers can be paired with blue light protection for a complete combination to help relieve these symptoms.

Around the age of 40, many adults may begin to have trouble seeing clearly when reading up close. This condition is called presbyopia and is a natural part of aging. Reading glasses contain magnifying lenses that make it easier to read up close, whether on a computer screen, fine print in books, magazines, or smartphones. Nearly all adults will someday experience blurry near vision, which can be corrected with reading glasses for an easier and more comfortable reading experience.

Many buyers find it difficult to choose the right readers. For those with presbyopia, wearing glasses may be a new consideration. Wearing glasses in a situation can seem like a pain because reading gets harder with age, which is why it’s important to choose readers that make you feel comfortable and fashionable without the hassle. Yesglasses makes it easy to filter to perfection reading glassesincluding by gender, frame shape, rim type, size, material and popular styles with plenty of helpful tips to guide the buyer to the perfect pair.

Spirit Lake, Iowa — This year’s unusually cold weather in late spring has delayed the start of walleye collection efforts.

Iowa Department of Natural Resources Supervisor Jay Rudacille (DNR) Warm and Cold Water Fish Culture Section, says Mother Nature has presented many challenges this year, including cooler than normal temperatures, high winds, sleet and snow, and tornadoes. But he says that despite the less than ideal conditions, MNR still achieved its goal of collecting walleye eggs thanks to the dedication, passion and adaptability of MNR fisheries staff.

From April 5 to 14, walleye were caught in East Okoboji, Spirit, Storm, Clear and Rathbun lakes. Net crews collected enough walleye to produce 796 pints of eggs at the Spirit Lake Hatchery and 900 pints at the Rathbun Hatchery. Crews at Storm Lake sired enough females to produce 205 pints of walleye eggs while efforts at Clear Lake produced 292 pints of eggs. The Clear Lake and Storm Lake satellite hatcheries transferred their eggs to the Rathbun and Spirit Lake Fish hatcheries for incubation and hatching.

2022 was one of the best walleye collecting seasons in over a decade, with 531 female walleye from Rathbun Lake.

New egg incubators at Spirit Lake Hatchery replaced the old system that used lake water to hatch eggs.

The new recirculating incubators use dechlorinated city water to provide clean, aquatic invasive species-free water for egg hatching, according to Kim Hawkins, hatchery manager at Spirit Lake Fish Hatchery.

Iowa is one of the top producers of walleye fry in the United States, second only to Minnesota. While the majority of walleyes are stocked as fingerlings, some are farmed in Iowa. DNR hatched and stocked at different sizes. More than 1.2 million two-inch walleye are expected to be stocked in lakes, rivers and streams across the state this summer. the DNR plans to raise more than 311,000 walleyes to 6-9 inch fry that will be stocked in lakes later this fall.

With little natural reproduction in most Iowa lakes and rivers, Iowa walleye populations are highly dependent on stocking. Walleye are stocked throughout Iowa in natural lakes, inland rivers, flood control reservoirs, and some large man-made lakes.

In addition to walleye, Spirit Lake crews collected 195 northern pike which produced over 1.6 million northern pike fry and 93 muskellunge which are currently held in the hatchery awaiting spawning.

After being closed for the past two spawning seasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Spirit Lake Hatchery is open and ready for visitors. Contact the hatchery for hours of operation.
