Airbnb Hosts Are Opening Their Doors to Hurricane Evacuees

The program started in October 2012 following the destruction of Hurricane Sandy on the East coast because of one host in Brooklyn offering his home up for free. Over 1,000 other New Yorkers followed his example and welcomed victims and families into their own homes.Through collaboration with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Airbnb has been educating hosts on proper response and procedure following natural disasters.RELATED: ‘Airbnb’ for Refugees Matches Migrants To Europeans Volunteering HomesThe program also helps on-site disaster relief volunteers find housing near their target areas.“Throughout my career, I’ve seen the terrible devastation that disasters can inflict, but I’ve also seen the powerful ways that communities come together to respond and recover,” says Kellie Bentz, Airbnb’s Head of Global Disaster Relief. “At Airbnb we have a real opportunity to use our disaster response program to help these communities in a time of need.

Castleton Poll: Vermonters nervous about economy, want an Ethics Commission

first_imgVermont Business Magazine Castleton University’s Castleton Polling Institute released its “Vermont Issues Poll” today. As is generally the case, jobs and the economy are seen as the most important problem facing the state of Vermont. The recent Castleton Poll found one-third of all respondents citing the economy as the most important issue facing the state. This is the issue most on Vermonter’s minds. The Poll also asked questions about a possible Ethics Commission, legalizing marijuana, and school district consolidation.Figure 1 illustrates the range of responses to this open-ended question.Figure 1. Vermonters views on the most important issue facing their stateIncluded in the “other” category were a wide-range of responses that touched on concern for the state’s infrastructure, abortion, partisanship, and concern for the state’s senior citizens.  While in total they represent a large number of respondents (14 percent), no single issue within this group overall represents more than 2 percent of the total sample.The economy and taxes and spending were more likely to resonate with older respondents, while drugs and opiate addiction as an issue was more likely to resonate with younger Vermonters; Figure 2 illustrates these difference. The economy is seen as more salient as one’s level of education increased, and conversely, taxes and spending is seen as less salient as education levels rise. Figure 2. Importance of three major issue areas, by age Figure 4. Perception that there is a need for a state ethics commission, by party MarijuanaSupport for legalizing and regulating marijuana if Vermont for recreational use has remained steady since the last time that Castleton put the question to the general public. In February 2015, a Castleton Poll found a slim majority (54 percent) favored and 40 percent opposed legalizing marijuana; in the poll that just concluded September 14th, we found 56 percent favor legalization and 34 percent oppose. The percent without an opinion on the matter rose slightly from 6 percent to 10 percent, but this difference is not significant.  Overall, support remains level even as talk about taking the issue up in the next legislation session increases. Castleton will release more data on support and opposition to marijuana legalization in a later and more extensive report. Source: Castleton University www.castleton.edu/about-castleton/the-castleton-polling-institute(link is external) 9.23.2015center_img Act 46The Castleton Poll asked respondents, “The Vermont legislature passed and Governor Shumlin signed Act 46, a law designed to encourage and help local school districts partner together to create districts of at least 900 students. How familiar are you with Act 46?” Given the brief introduction to the question, 12 percent said that they were very familiar with Act 46, and 48 percent said they were somewhat familiar.  Forty percent of Vermonters are completely unfamiliar with Act 46. Regardless of familiarity with Act 46, a clear majority (59 percent) favor state actions to encourage consolidation of schools. There is no clear relationship between respondents’ familiarity with Act 46 and their support of state actions to consolidate schools.There is also little differences in support for school consolidation by political party affiliation or by one’s level of education; however, age appears related to ones views on the issue; 54 percent of those under 45 years old support consolidation, compared with 61 percent of those age 45 to 64, and 65 percent for those age 65 and older.Ethics commissionTo assess the degree to which support for creating a commission to address ethics in state government is linked to a perceived need for such a commission, the Castleton Poll randomly assigned respondents to receive one, and only one, of the following questions:Right now, Vermont state government is considering whether or not to establish an independent panel to investigate potential ethics violations where state officials are involved. Would you support or oppose the establishment of a state ethics commission in Vermont?- OR -Some have argued that as a small state, Vermont does not have the problems of other states, and therefore an independent ethics commission is not necessary and would only be a bother. Others have argued that Vermont needs an independent oversight body to address concerns about the ethical behavior of public officials. With whom do you most agree?The first question asks about support without concern for the degree to which respondents feel such a commission is necessary, while the latter question measures respondent’s sense of need for such a commission in Vermont.  This experiment was done because it possible that Vermonters would support an ethics commission even if they thought there was little need for one. There is both support for the establishment of an ethics commission (74 percent, n = 302) and a perceived need for such a commission (67 percent, n=315), both with large majorities.  Ironically, the perception of need is highest among Republicans, and the support for the establishment thereof is highest among Democrats.  These differences are illustrated in the following two figures.  It is possible that Republican perception of need for an ethics commission as well as their reluctance to support such a commission have the same root: trepidation about government and governmental solutions. The opposite may explain the Democratic higher support level and lower sense of need for the commission.Figure 3.

Ice fishing shanties must be removed

first_imgVermont Business Magazine Vermont state law requires that ice fishing shanties be removed from the ice before the ice weakens, according the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department. The name and address of the owner must be on the ice shanty, and the shanty must be removed before the ice becomes unsafe or loses its ability to support the shanty out of the water, or before the last Sunday in March — the 26th this year — whichever comes first. All contents, debris, wood, and supports must also be removed so they do not become a hazard to navigation in the spring. The fine for leaving your ice fishing shanty on the ice can be $1,000, and shanties may not be left at state fishing access areas. District game wardens are available for questions via the Vermont State Police radio dispatcher. Source: Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department. 2.17.2017last_img read more

Giving cancer the cold shoulder at London Winter Run 2015

first_img Related Wimbledon might be in its second week, the Tour de France just around the corner and the school summer holidays shortly upon us – but Londoners are already being called upon to conquer the cold this winter. Getting outside to run is certainly easier when the sun is shining, but to keep the motivation through the winter is something not everyone can sustain; 26% of runners supposedly never run in the winter.The Cancer Research UK London Winter Run is challenging people to keep running through the winter by taking on a 10K run on 1 February 2015. 15,000 people are expected to fill the streets early next year, making their way past London’s most iconic landmarks where they will brave the elements to raise vital funds to help beat cancer sooner.The run, delivered in partnership with Cancer Research UK by Human Race – ‘the UK’s largest organiser of running, cycling, triathlon and swimming events’ – will see runners gather at ‘Base Camp’, which will be set up by the River Thames on London’s Embankment. From there they will set off along a stunning looped course featuring views of the London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral, Big Ben, the Tower of London and many more of London’s iconic sites.Areas of snow, being dubbed Snow-Zones, are anticipated to feature on the winter themed route, but, as Human Race points out, ‘runners won’t let that stop them making it to the finish as they conquer the cold in aid of Cancer Research UK.’Clive Sanders, Head of Events at Cancer Research UK, said “We’re delighted to be launching this exhilarating running event for London and we hope thousands of participants will unite to help beat cancer sooner. By taking part in the Winter Run men and women of all ages can give cancer the cold shoulder and demonstrate that the fight to keep more families together for longer is year-round.”The timing of the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run is also well-timed to put those New Year’s resolutions into practice. For anyone aiming to get fit and healthy in 2015, the London Winter Run provides some inspiration to dig out the trainers and see the city in the best possible way ‘by foot, on safe closed roads with thousands of cheering supporters.’Human Race points out that the event also gives runners hoping to maintain their fitness throughout the winter something fun to aim for and is ‘an ideal distance to conquer as part of a spring marathon training plan.’Nick Rusling, CEO of Human Race, said “The London Winter Run is part of our vision to get thousands of runners to take on the challenge of running in stunning central London in the heart of winter. To achieve this vision we will work with our partners Cancer Research UK and London in order to inspire people to keep active all around the year.“We’ve organised many events in the winter before and they have a wonderful added sense of camaraderie and collective spirit which should make this event magical.”Runners can register their interest now to take advantage of the early-bird price of £34 for a limited time only. The entry price will rise to £39 on 16 July.www.londonwinterrun.co.ukwww.cancerresearchuk.orgwww.humanrace.co.uklast_img read more

Tagliolini ai Funghi

first_img Share Chef Michael PiroloWho: Chef Michael PiroloInstagram: @MikePiroloChef Pirolo’s Guest-Worthy Recipe: Tagliolini ai FunghiWhy?“This deceptively simple and elegant pasta dish is made with earthy Abalone mushrooms sautéed with parsley, cream, and truffles and served with tagliolini pasta. If you like mushrooms, this is the perfect dish for you and your guests, vegetarian or not. The sheer softness of the (hopefully) fresh pasta paired with the meatiness of the tender mushrooms and richness of truffle makes for a really special dish, complex in both flavor and texture. This recipe requires very few ingredients but is truly decadent. It’s an awesome, quick dish to make on a busy weeknight when you’re not feeling a cholesterol extravaganza or for entertaining guests on the weekend.” Ingredients4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil1/4 c butter1/2 lb Abalone mushrooms, sliced1 oz fresh truffles2/3 c single cream4 c tagliolini or tagliatelle pastaGrated Parmesan cheeseSaltChili flakesParsley, chiffonadeDirectionsHeat oil and butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add mushrooms and sauté for a few minutes, adding chili flakes and salt.Add about six ounces of water, reduce heat, and simmer for about five minutes. If the sauce gets too thick, add another half-cup of water.In the meantime, cook the tagliolini in abundant salted water until “al dente,” reserving about one cup of cooking water before draining the pasta.Add drizzle of olive oil, parsley, and sauté while adding the grated parmesan, until you have a creamy consistency.Add some of the reserved cooking water if pasta is too dry.Serve immediately, grating or shaving the fresh truffle over each plate. Buon appetito!Note: To clean the mushrooms, do not wash with water! With a small knife, cut off the bottom. Then, take off any remaining dirt with a vegetable brush or a damp cloth.last_img read more

Steve Gee’s campaign diary: week 1

first_imgJuggling my day job with running as a MP candidate is keeping me busy: I’m up at about 5.45am to leave the house and go leafleting at the local station with one of our other campaigners from 6.30am to 8.30am – handing out around 500 leaflets. Meanwhile, my wife calls to say a further 50,000 leaflets have been dropped off at home that we plan to send out. Next I dash home to throw down a coffee and catch up on emails. Responding to emails takes up a lot of my time with issues ranging from enquiries from the Cats Protection League to more mainstream topics such Palestine and tax avoidance. After that I head to Sutton where we are supporting Paul Burstow the local Lib Dem MP. While in the last week all the big parties have released manifestos, truth be told, they have little impact with the majority of people I chat to there, aside from a number who were wholly against the newly proposed right to buy.Meanwhile, my wife has checked with Royal Mail and discovered that the 50,000 leaflets sat in the hall not only have to be batched into 100s but also sorted into post codes – worrying as we are booked to deliver them to the post office at 8am the following morning. I get home around 4pm and start sorting the leaflets, eventually joined by my daughter who has arrived home from school and, for a small fee, been incentivised to join the team. With a short dinner break we complete the counting, sorting, boxing, labelling and loading into the car around 9.30pm. None of us can walk straight and we are all complaining about our backs. On the plus side I’ve lost a few pounds by being on my feet all day, knocking on doors.Its now 10.30pm. As I head off to bed I look forward to an even earlier start in the morning in order to get the 50,000 leaflets to Greenford sorting office. Heading off to work after will feel like a rest!Steve Gee, managing partner, John Rowan and Partners’last_img read more

Cass has the best swim

first_imgIPGC Golf from The HavenMonday, Sept. 28, Greenwood – StablefordHaving set off from The Haven in fine weather but with the outlook appearing gloomy, the group managed to play eight or nine holes before heavy rain set in and the players repaired to the clubhouse to outwait the storm.  After an hour or more and a few beverages later and it still raining, it was agreed that the course would probably be unfit to allow for any continuation of play and the group returned to base.  It was the first time in over two years that a competition with the group had not been completed due to the weather or course conditions.Wednesday, Sept. 30, Pattana A & C – StablefordCSS 731st Hal Hart (20) 35pts 2nd Jamie King (17) 31pts3rd Benny Hansen (27) 30pts4th Phil Cass (16) 27pts5th John Sutcliff (17) 27ptsPhil Cass & Hal Hart.The stormy weather continued through to Wednesday and once again the group set off in high hopes.  Unfortunately the numbers were greatly depleted due to the course reasonably requiring carts to be kept to the paths and a fair number of the regulars deciding that their expertise was probably insufficient to get them near enough to the paths from the tee to avoid walking further than riding.In the event the rain kept away until the last couple of holes for most of the three groups and so there was no repeat of the previous outing’s cancellation.Hal Hart had the best of the day to take another win, utilising his new putter that had been generously donated by Bruce Hilde who considered it a loser but is now regretting the kindly gesture as it is now costing him dear.  Hal’s one over score was good enough in the conditions to lead the chasing pack in by four clear shots.Jamie King took second place after sticking to it having been in a good position up until the rain set in and then faded a little.Benny Hansen slipped into third another shot back after he had started well but tired a little following a bit too much walking.Phil Cass won a count back for fourth spot over John Sutcliff with a better 7 to 6 on the last six holes after they had tied the nine on 13 each.There were no 2’s in either of the divisions.Friday, Oct. 2, Crystal Bay – StablefordCSS 72 1st Phil Cass (16) 36pts2nd Hal Hart (20) 30pts3rd Peter Skinner (11) 28ptsAnother start from The Haven when the weather was looking ominous and again the field had been depleted, on this occasion even more so, as there were no carts available due to the lack of cart paths on the course.  This meant that all of the players would be walkers, reducing the entries to the bare minimum.Phil Cass made light work of the heavy going as the course was fairly waterlogged with casual water drops needed on many occasions throughout the day.  His level handicap round easily took the win as the rest of the hopefuls struggled to keep up any momentum on a slow day with so many extra drops needed to complete each hole.  Phil’s win was even more remarkable considering that his card included four zero-pointers and three four-pointers.Hal Hart had another good result in second place even though his card also had four zeros on it but unfortunately no four-pointers.Peter Skinner returned to conditions that he used to be well suited to, but a few years spent in balmy conditions has blunted his wet weather skills somewhat.  He still did well enough however to secure third place on the day and the last place on a foreshortened podium.Once again there were no 2’s in either division leaving the second division pool overflowing and awaiting to be cleared after several previous attempts.Note: If you would like to play with The Haven group, you can contact 038 710 988 or call in to The Haven Hotel, 185 Soi 13, situated between Beach Road and 2nd Road.  All transportation to the course is arranged and you do not need to sign up prior to the day, but you should be there by 8.15 on a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on the days that you wish to play. If you would like to leave your golf clubs at The Haven, there are usually lockers available at a nominal charge.  A schedule of courses to be played can be found on our web site at www.thehaven-hotel.com.last_img read more

Cox takes a shine to Monday golf

first_imgTravellers Rest Golf GroupMonday, June 30, Greenwood – StablefordMany moon’s ago the Boomtown Rats sang a song that topped the charts called “I Don’t Like Mondays”, and most people would agree, as they have to return to work on Monday after having the weekend off.  Charlie Cox however is an exception because he obviously does like Mondays and for two weeks running he has he has jumped out of bed at the start of the week and proceeded to win a golf competition. On Monday at Greenwood (B and C courses) Charlie rattled off 40 points and walked off with the first prize, leaving all the other golfers wishing they had stayed in bed.Fergus Brennan. Mind you, although Charlie made it look easy there was quite a scrap going on behind him for second and third places.  Aussies Daryl Ottaway and Ted Senior were locking horns and both finished with a highly respectable 37 points each and it took a count back to finally separate them.1st Charlie Cox (19) 40pts2nd Daryl Ottaway (5) 37pts3rd Ted Senior (14) 37ptsWednesday, July 2, Burapha – StablefordOn Wednesday Fergus Brennan packed up his troubles in his old kitbag, smiled, smiled, smiled and proceeded to show some true grit just like John Wayne.  Despite having the troubles of the world on his shoulders of late, he cast them all off on Burapha’s B and C courses and came out on top of the leader board and then told everybody it was the first round of golf he had won in living memory.  And as somebody once said to John Wayne in True Grit, it was “big talk from a one eyed fat man,” but he carried it off with his usual aplomb or should that be his Irish blarney.Fergus was very nearly pipped for top spot by a lady, Carmen Hurdon, but she had to settle for second place after a count back.  ‘Mr Reliable’ a.k.a. Neil Bramley had to make do with third place on this occasion.1st Fergus Brennan (12) 35pts2nd Carmen Hurdon (18) 35pts3rd Neil Bramley (8) 32ptsFriday, July 4, Plutaluang – StablefordThe TRGG took another trip over to the Navy Course at Plutaluang (West and North courses) on Friday and not wishing to be outdone by his partner at the TRGG, Derek Thorogood thought he would get into the act and won the day’s competition.  Derek has been very consistent of late and has cemented a regular appearance on the winner’s podium and he even managed to beat off last week’s hero Ito Akitoshi who finished in second place.Derek Thorogood.Carmen Hurdon again had a good day again, finishing in the places but this time in third.1st Derek Thorogood (16) 38pts2nd Ito Akitoshi (7) 37pts3rd Carmen Hurdon (18) 35ptsGood luck to all you golfers for the coming week and if you would like to play a round of golf with the TRGG, please phone Fergus Brennan on 086 056 7019 or pop into the Ned Kelly Bar in Soi Lengkee and add your name to the weekly lists which are posted on the notice board.last_img read more
