1 million in grants to local charities
The Orlando Magic Youth Foundation handed out $1 million in grants to local charities Wednesday money that will help tens of thousands of kids and teens facing everything from illiteracy to diabetes to domestic violence.
The Magic broke the news in an NBA draft style event at the Amway Center. David Steele, the team’s TV play by play announcer, called representatives from each nonprofit recipient up to the front, where they were given basketball trophies, framed jerseys and fat checks.
“This is huge,” said Sister Ann Kendrick, a co founder of the Hope CommUnity Center in Apopka, which received a $100,000 grant for its tutoring, mentoring and leadership development program for middle and high school students.
“We don’t have a big budget,” Kendrick said. “We’re like a little fish, but today we’re swimming with the big fish.”
She and her colleagues cheered, hugged and cried as their organization and the size of its grant were announced. It was the first time the foundation has given out checks of $100,000 apiece an amount that went to five of the 19 charities funded.
The other four were the Howard Phillips Center for Children and Families, Florida Hospital for Children, the Valencia Community College Foundation and Harbor House, Orange County’s domestic violence and prevention center.
“It’s just incredibly exciting,” said Harbor House CEO Carol Wick. The nonprofit will use its grant money for a domestic violence prevention program mandated by the 2010 Legislature to run in all public schools.
“To be able to have this funding will affect the lives of so many kids and so many communities, and we’re just thrilled that the Magic are working hand in hand with us,” Wick said.
It was one of the largest private grants Harbor House has ever received.
At the Howard Phillips Center, the new grant will help fund a program that provides free medical and mental health care to low income teens across Orange County, largely via a mobile medical unit.wholesale nfl jerseys from china Marie Martinez, operations manager for the nonprofit, said the money will cover follow up efforts for kids who are found to have more serious medical issues, such as asthma, diabetes and obesity related high blood pressure.
The $1 million giveaway was the team’s biggest charitable distribution since 2002. In past years, the Magic have simply presented the checks during halftime on game nights. This year, Magic President Alex Martins said, they wanted to give the nonprofit leaders some time to celebrate together.
“This makes it particularly fun and exciting because they don’t necessarily know they have been selected for a grant, and they certainly don’t know what amount they’re receiving,” Martins said before the event. “It’s one of my favorite days of the year.”
The money is especially precious in what for many has been an era of unprecedented demand and funding cutbacks.
“These days, the need for direct financial assistance from our program has increased close to 30 percent since just a few years ago,” said Karen Broussard, director of program development at Jewish Family Services of Metro Orlando. The nonprofit won a $50,000 grant for its family stabilization effort, which helps those tumbling toward foreclosure and bankruptcy.
“This helps us stabilize the immediate needs of the family so that they can go through the program and really learn how to deal with their situations,” Broussard said.
The Magic’s foundation has given out grant money each of the 21 years since its creation, but this is only the sixth time the total has topped the $1 million mark. Hundreds of agencies apply for the funds, which are raised through the Magic’s annual Black Tie Tennies Gala as well as an annual golf tournament, auctions of autographed sports memorabilia and fines against players for breaking team rules, such as being late to practice.
“It is part of our mission to be world champions both on and off the court,” Martins said. “It is so rewarding to us to be able to go to these children’s organizations and see the need and ultimately be able to make a contribution to the work they’re doing.”

CINCINNATI When the University of Cincinnati men’s basketball team takes the court at the Big East Tournament this week in New York City and hopefully the NCAA Tournament, the squad will be donning new uniforms.
The university and footwear and apparel company announced Tuesday that the Bearcats were selected by adidas as one of three programs in the country to wear the new, ultra lightweight adizero basketball uniforms throughout its postseason run.
Cincinnati will wear the new uniforms beginning Thursday when they play their first game in the Big East Tournament (March 6 10). Their opponent has yet to be determined but will be between Georgetown and/or Pittsburgh and St. John’s. Whoever wins between Pittsburgh and St. John’s then takes on Georgetown for a right to play UC. The Bearcats, who won 12 conference games for the first time since joining the Big East, earned a double bye for this year’s tournament, also a school first.
Cincinnati’s postseason uniforms feature a limited design, coloring and a new pixilated pattern instead of a traditional, heavier solid pattern. wholesale jerseys The new uniforms shed weight, add speed and are inspired by teamwork and working together to attack the court as a group, according to adidas. The amplified school colors pay homage to the high intensity of March Madness and the electrifying play during the NCAA Tournament.
“We are excited to be a part of an elite number of schools that adidas chose to promote on a national stage during March Madness,” UC Director of Athletics Whit Babcock said. “While the unique uniform color scheme is temporary for the Bearcats, it certainly will draw attention and a younger demographic to our C Paw logo and our energetic brand of basketball. The technology and new lightweight design of the uniforms is very impressive as well.”
“It’s a compliment to the growth of our program that Cincinnati gets to take part in this unveiling,” UC head coach Mick Cronin said. “The postseason uniforms are something the players are really going to enjoy.”
Adidas says the adizero basketball uniform is 40 percent lighter than previous uniforms and uses an unlined short to eliminate unnecessary weight and provide a more comfortable, closer fit with compression base layers. Teams will also sport the new adidas Team Crew basketball sock, which according to adidas, uses compression throughout the entire sock for added stability and CLIMALITE moisture wicking technology to reduce weight added by sweating.
“It’s a smart idea to get the chance to play wearing a lighter jersey and it will bring a new look the Bearcats,” UC sophomore guard Sean Kilpatrick said. “It gives us more recognition and shows that our hard work throughout the year is paying off. To be one of only three schools in the nation to wear these uniforms is unbelievable.”
His dad, John Pentland, stood in the surf wearing a wet Santa costume, complete with a hat and white beard, and said the polar bear swim is simply tradition for the family.
more important than New Year Eve. This is what gets us going for the year, he said.
The oldest Polar Bear Club in the country was founded in 1920 in Vancouver, and since then the frosty tradition has since spread across the country.
The Vancouver event remains the largest, however, attracting a record breaking 2,500 people in 2014.
This year, nearly 2,000 people registered for the swim, but there were even more who jumped in the water possibly enough to set a new record, said Sarah Kirby Yung, chairwoman of the Vancouver Park Board.
energy down here is fantastic, and that kind of what brings people together, she said.
While some opted to wear their traditional bathing suits, others were clad in costumes, pyjamas or brightly coloured wigs.
Ken Hamilton sported a hat covered with his pins from previous polar bear swims and a red headband to celebrate the decades he been attending the event.

Snow flurries didn deter several hundred people from turning out at a Toronto beach to run en masse into Lake Ontario in the 11th annual Toronto Polar Bear Dip.
In Oakville, Ont., Olaf the snowman, Santa Claus and at least one Star Wars storm trooper were among the 800 to dive into Lake Ontario.
Jenna Courage has done the dip at least 10 times but said she never gets used to the cold. She and a friend jumped up and down to keep warm, as snow fell around them, before they ran into the water.
Her father, Todd Courage, helped found the Oakville dip 31 years ago, and he participated every year since then.
For the past 20 years, he and his brother have partnered with World Vision Canada. Swimmers donate money to register, this year raking in $130,000 to bring clean water to Rwanda.
Organizers estimate 250 swimmers one wearing a lab coat and riding a boogie board entered the water during a polar bear dip at Britannia Beach in Ottawa, as cross country skiers made their way through a nearby park.

The notch at the top is where the LVDS ribbon passes to the top side of the motherboard. Those eight vias near the top of the red ellipse are almost certainly where the ribbon connector’s LVDS traces jump to an internal layer, popping back out at the eight vias near the top of the purple ellipse along their way to the LVDS transmitter.
After confirming that the LVDS signals do indeed pop up at those vias, I continued my testing by checking continuity across the 10 pad 1608 packages around the LVDS chip. These are 27pF low pass filter chips with four channels apiece. canada goose women All of them measured up at 2.2 2.7, which means no shorts or opens there. The next thing I checked was shorts between the LVDS traces from the filter chips to ground. Looks like I have found my problem, except for one small detail. Can you guess what it is? The answer is in the picture. In any case, I ended up on a wild goose chase across the motherboard.
Now that I know for certain that there is a short on the ribbon cable, the next question is: where? There isn’t much that can go wrong in a flexible flat cable, especially on one where the signal traces never switch sides. It is a simple sandwich of one structural and two insulating polyimide layers with two copper layers for signals and power. Since there are no signal vias to short to other layers and no dents in the cable that could indicate a layer to layer short, the most likely source for my problem is under the wafer connector: a solder bridge between pins or pads.

I’m still using my 2013 N7, and luckily I’ve never had the sort of issues you describe here. Sure, the touchscreen is a bit slow, but nothing awful. I bought it late about two years ago now so that might explain some of this. After the Marshmallow update (hooray, an Android update arriving on time for the N7 2013 LTE!), it’s been entirely stable, and slightly quicker than before. By the way, I can’t remember ever needing more than two touch points. Repair, reuse, repurpose, resell. It survived numerous system updates unscathed until last December’s 6.0.1 update. It bricked it and required a factory reset. It always had the following minor issues though:1) Auto Rotation becomes locked unless an app forces it to change. Only a reboot fixes it.2) Sometimes the touch screen flakes out and stops registering touches. Power cycling (not rebooting, just putting to standby via the power button) fixes it, as does a reboot.3) It became unusably slow after the first 5.0 update. I wish I went back to 4.4.3(?) back then, but afterwards, games choked, apps stopped working well. But it still worked.4) The micro usb port is unstable. Have to play the “angle game” to get it to seat and charge properly. But it was one of the best tablets aside from those issues. Currently, its being used by my girlfriend as her first foray into the Android world.

Also, remembering to keep a seldom used tablet charged is a hassle like no other and switching it off completely means a roughly 1 minute wait to turn on, by which time I’ve already picked up my phone instead.
I fully support repairing your N7 for a couple of reasons:
1: throwing away an otherwise fully functional piece of hardware is just dumb. Repair, reuse, repurpose, resell. The world has no need of more electronics waste.
My N7 issues aren’t over yet: the USB port on my N7 decided to die a few weeks after I sent this story in, so that’s one more thing on my growing laundry list of things to look into fixing. www.gooseonsale.top Now it only charges at a meager 280mA instead of the more reasonable former 860mA and I get no data connection to my PC.

for charging you should see about getting the docking station for it that charges by using the pogo pins on the side of the tablet
Lots of cheap tabs with 1GB of RAM, barely working digitizers, long outdated OS versions, no support and who knows how many other issues. I’m not going to buy another tablet with only 1GB of RAM on it: that may have been fine four years ago under Android 4.2 but with apps, APIs, runtimes and the core OS getting a little heavier each year, 1GB is barely enough to have one non trivial app open at a time on a 32bits ARM platform today. On x86 64, I’d even bump my minimum requirement to 3GB RAM based on how the ZenTab z580c’s 2GB RAM could barely handle two open apps at a time after I got done updating its bloatware.
