Election 2012 USA; The Politics of Politics

NON BIAS REMARK:

The United States of America’s economy is involved in a Global Market, not National.

I do not appreciate you talking to us like Mice on Cheese.

Please understand that if China, France, Spain, or Greeces’ economy were to crash we would be affected, and we need to Export more. Basically we need to Export more products to grow jobs now.

Also, kinda personal. We need to elect a Global Ocean President to represent our Ocean, for all Countries.


RNC Romney speech. Bigs.

Denounced Big Govt., went  with Job creation, followed by Energy and Healthcare then Military.

just a thought.. Lobby List of BIGS (possible top 3 in US., who knows.)

1. Big Oil/Energy 2. Big Pharma 3. Big Govt 4. possible Big Military? Jobs. Jobs. Jobs.

I no longer consider Big Ag to be on their own, they will forever be associated with Big Energy in my eyes (sorry Big Ag.)

If he doesn’t get elected, he should at least get paid for trying. Great Job Mitt.!  Great speech.

COMMUNITY FOUNDATION PARTNERS WITH OCEAN REHAB INITIATIVE AND CITIZEN DIVERS TO PROTECT OUR REEFS AND COASTLINES

 

(June 2, 2011) WEST PALM BEACH – Ocean Rehab Initiative, a Palm Beach County based Coral Reef Initiative is pleased to announce it has received a $2,500 matching grant from the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties with a total of $5,000 directed towards Coral Reef Conservation. Ocean Rehab Initiative will use these funds to support its Florida Reef Project and continue its mission of surveying the entire length of the Southeastern Reef Tract. 

The Florida Reef Project employs citizen divers to survey the reef, which stretches from the St. Lucie Inlet in Martin County, all the way to the Florida Keys. A major concentration of the portion of the reef which lies closest to shore is in Martin and Palm Beach counties. These divers are certified free of charge according to Reef Check International standards. They agree to perform two survey dives over the next two years. These dives will create the first ever baseline of the reef system, allowing for proper management in the future.

The grant, on behalf of the Wendy and Royall Victor III Fund for Environment and Landmark Preservation of the Community Foundation, will allow Ocean Rehab Initiative to certify twelve Palm Beach and Martin County divers. Those divers will then begin surveying the reef line that runs along Palm Beach and Martin Counties.

“A real progress in addressing environmental challenges is to involve a broad group of concerned citizens. The Ocean Rehab Initiative does exactly that by employing citizen divers in studying and mapping the reef structures off the east coast of South Florida, which is one of the most endangered marine environments extant,” says Royall Victor III, Chair of the Environmental Committee and the Vice Chair of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties Board of Directors.

 “Ocean Rehab Initiative is extremely grateful to the Community Foundation for this very generous grant,” said William Djubin, president of Ocean Rehab Initiative. “It is only because of foundations like the Community Foundation that we are able to exist, much less perform this work, which is very important to everyone who lives along Florida’s coast.”

Ocean Rehab Initiative is a 501(c) (3) Public Charity Non-profit volunteer organization Ocean Rehab’s next scheduled “Citizen Scientist” diver certification classes will be held the third week of  June 2011 thanks to the sponsorship of CFPBMC.  

Contact Ocean Rehab Initiative at http://OceanRehab.org or e-mail at info@oceanrehab.org for any inquiries.

 

The Community Foundation awards grants through a competitive application and review process. (Ask the Community Foundation to supply a quote regarding your project by emailing the Director of Communications and Marketing.)
