Out2martincounty.com

In photo:

Stuart — “I am here to defend the Constitution of the State of Fllrida”, was the overriding theme of the address Florida Attorney general tried to covey at the Charles and Rae Kane Center before a more than supportive audience.

“I put my hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the constitution and weather it be issues from Gay Marriage, Medical Marijuana or Anti-Human Trafficking I will continue to do just that.

Attorney General Bondi also thanked Governor Rick Scott for his support on all those issues and his success in the fight for restoring Florida jobs over the past four years.

NASA Awards Space Taxi Contract to Boeing and SpaceX

Out2martincounty.com

NASA has awarded the highly-anticipated space taxi contract to Boeing and SpaceX, a move which will end the agency’s reliance on Russian technology to transport U.S. astronauts to the International Space Station.

The Commercial Crew Transportation Capability contract aims to restore an American capability to launch astronauts from U.S. soil to the International Space Station by the end of 2017. Since the end of the Space Shuttle program in 2011, American astronauts have been transported to space on Russian-built Soyuz vessels.

“We know that going to space is hard,” said Kathy Lueders, NASA’s Commercial Crew program manager, during a press conference at Kennedy Space Center. “NASA and aerospace industry have accomplished hard things in the past.”

In addition to SpaceX and Boeing, Sierra Nevada and Blue Origin were all in the running for the $6.8 billion contract.

During the press conference, Lueders explained that NASA’s deals with Boeing and SpaceX are worth $4.2 billion and $2.6 billion, respectively. “There’s a maximum of 6 missions under that contract value,” she added.

Boeing’s CST-100 spacecraft, which recently completed its critical design review of integrated systems, was at the core of the company’s bid. SpaceX’s Dragon craft led its bid.

Sun Unleashes Major Solar Flare at Earth

 Out2martincounty.com

A big storm erupted on the sun today (Sept. 10), and Earth was in the crosshairs.

The sun unleashed an X-class solar flare — the most powerful type — at 1:45 p.m. EDT (1745 GMT) today from an Earth-facing sunspot known as Active Region 2158, which also fired off another intense solar flare yesterday. Both space weather events were captured on camera by NASA’s sun-watching Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft.

Today’s solar flare qualifies as an X1.6 storm but poses no danger to anyone on Earth or the astronauts living aboard the International Space Station, NASA officials told Space.com. However, some people’s lives could be affected by the solar tempest.

“Impacts to HF [high-frequency] radio communications on the daylight side of Earth are expected to last for more than an hour,” researchers with the National Weather Service’s Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) wrote in an online update today.

Further effects could be felt later in the week if the sunspot also fired off a cloud of superhot plasma known as a coronal mass ejection (CME). CMEs often accompany powerful flares and can trigger geomagnetic storms when they hit Earth, typically two to three days after erupting.

Geomagnetic storms can temporarily disrupt GPS signals, radio communications and power grids, as well as intensify the beautiful auroral displays known as the northern and southern lights.

It’s probable that Wednesday’s eruption did indeed produce a CME, SWPC researchers said.

“Initial information suggests that a CME is likely associated with this event, but further analysis is underway at this time,” they wrote in today’s update.

Scientists classify strong solar flares according to a three-tiered system, with C flares being the weakest, M flares medium-strength and X flares the most powerful.

Wednesday’s X1.6 flare qualifies as intense, but is far from the strongest blasted out by the sun this year. For example, our star fired off a monster X4.9 flare in February. (X4 flares are four times as powerful as X1 flares.)

The sun is currently at or near the peak phase of its 11-year activity cycle, which is known as Solar Cycle 24. But our star has been relatively quiescent during Solar Cycle 24, whose max phase is the weakest in about 100 years, scientists say.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory is one of several spacecraft regularly monitoring the sun to track space weather events and their potential risks to astronauts and satellites.

From Reddit to Pornhub, Websites Slow Down For Net Neutrality

on September 10th

Out2martincounty.com

You know the net neutrality conversation is breaking new ground when even the porn sites are weighing in. And that’s just what we’re seeing: Major adult platforms Pornhub and Redtube are joining an online protest on September 10, calling for stronger protections for net neutrality. They’re teaming up with dozens of digital rights organizations, including EFF, Demand Progress, and Fight for the Future, as well as other Internet companies like Etsy, reddit and Mozilla, in a digital day of action designed to bring the net neutrality debate to hundreds of thousands of Internet users worldwide.

Net neutrality— the idea that Internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all data that travels over their networks equally—got major attention this Spring when the FCC released proposed regulatory guidelines that left Internet users and companies alike deeply concerned. The proposal included new language giving ISPs leeway to create a “fast lane” for certain websites (i.e. websites with deep pockets that were willing to shell out more money for faster access to users).

But you can’t have a fast lane without also having a slower lane. And that means everyday websites—including journalistic websites and start-up companies that could compete with established web services—could be slow to load, even as our expectations for loading speed leap ahead in the coming years.

That’s why the protest on September 10 will showcase a slow-lane Internet, by putting graphics of “page loading” warnings on participating sites. (Don’t worry—Pornhub promises it won’t actually load pages more slowly.)

For months, the FCC has been collecting comments from the public about its proposed net neutrality guidelines, and hundreds of thousands of people have already spoken out. But we’re fast approaching the deadline for public engagement through the rulemaking process: September 15 is the end of the public comment period.

That’s why the day of action on September 10 is so important—it’s our last big push to get the general public to speak out about net neutrality before the deadline.

We’ve already made a huge impact. The Sunlight Foundation recently analyzed over 800,000 comments submitted to the FCC about net neutrality– and found that more than 99% of them supported stronger protections for neutrality. The September 10 day of action will help rally people from across the web to speak out, and help create such a ruckus that the FCC cannot ignore our call to amend its proposed rules—and force Congress to take note as well.

How You Can Join

On September 10, we’ll have a custom banner on EFF’s website.

It’ll look like this, and link to our site where you can submit comments to the FCC:

Out2martincounty.com
Another great way to spread the word is through social media. Please consider tweeting and posting about net neutrality both in the lead up to September 10 and on the day of action.

Ultimate Frisbee Continues In Martin County

Out2martincounty.com

Palm City — Ultimate was developed in 1968 by a group of students at Columbia H.S. in Maplewood, NJ. Although Ultimate resembles many traditional sports in its athletic requirements, it is unlike most sports due to its focus on self-officiating, even at the highest levels of competition. This concept, called Spirit of the Game, is integrated into the basic philosophy of the sport, written into the rules, and practiced at all levels of the game from local leagues to the World Games.

If you’re interested come out2 Palm City Park, 6:00 PM Mondays.

Inner Tube Water Polo Finals

Out2martincounty.com

Stuart — On Saturday four teams played an inner tube water polo double elimination tournament at Sailfish water Park for United Way of Martin County.

Inner tube water polo is a variation of the sport water polo with the important difference that players, excluding the goalkeeper, are required to float in inflatable inner tubes. By floating in an inner tube, players experience less contact and expend less energy than traditional water polo players, not having to tread water. This allows casual players to enjoy water polo without undertaking the intense conditioning required for conventional water polo.

“We wanted a new and entertaining summer fundraising event that family, friends or co-workers could all participate in,” said Wendie Berardi, director of corporate engagement and donor relations. “Inner tube water polo is perfect because everyone can keep cool in the pool and the inner tube evens the playing field.”

While inner tube water polo might be all fun and games; ending hunger, strengthening families, improving people’s health, creating job opportunities, providing solid education for all, and ensuring safety are no laughing matter. In fact, United Way has made it a priority to solve these problems and all proceeds from the event will be put back into the community where they’re needed most.

Palm City -– Domestic Violence is a pattern of abusive behaviors used to establish power and control over an intimate partner often leading to the threat or use of violence. Abuse is any controlling behavior, hurtful acts, word, or gesture that injures another’s body or emotions. Domestic violence is not a disagreement, a marital spat, or an anger management problem.

All Treasure Coast victims of domestic violence who are requesting emergency shelter receive safe housing at one of our two residential shelter facilities.

Anyone can access SafeSpace services by the 24-hour hotline 1-800-500-1119 or referral by friends or family, law enforcement, or other social services agencies.

2014 Surfers For Autism

 Out2martincounty.com

Stuart Beach — Surfers For Autism mission is to unlock the potential of people with developmental delays, support advocacy for autism issues and scientific research. Our focus is to eliminate stigma through public awareness and education and to unite communities through volunteerism. Our History It was December of 2007 when a simple idea was presented to a small group of South Florida surfers by a member whose life and family have been touched by autism. The concept of introducing children on the autism spectrum to surfing took hold and the group began planning for the inaugural Deerfield Beach event.

Fundraising efforts help us fulfill our mission of bringing these life-changing events to as many communities as possible and to help fund autism research, awareness and advocacy. Fundraising would be conducted by soliciting local businesses to donate product and services for a raffle and through the sale of event specific T-shirts.

On April 5, 2008, the inaugural Surfers For Autism event was held on the north side of the Deerfield Beach Pier where 40 surfers with autism hit the water and over $10,000 was raised to benefit autism associated charities. The organization has since hosted events in several locations on Florida’s East Coast, and single events have registered as many as 200 surfers and raised close to $20,000.

At the Stuart SFA event, our surfers are provided a safe environment where two to four highly skilled and trained surf instructors carefully guide them into waves. Our surfers and their families are treated like rock stars and enjoy a day filled with a range of activities including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, live music, face-painting, games, bounce houses, fire engine tours and much more. A catered lunch is also provided, all at no cost. This is a very special day where children with ASD interact with typical peers and wow families with their capabilities. This event is an example of inclusion at the highest level.

2014 Single Fin Showdown

 Out2martincounty.com

In photo: That’s why it’s called “Single Finn”

Stuart — Raising money for United Way and Martin County’s less fortunate residents was as easy as catching a wave and enjoying the day at the beach.

Back by popular demand for the sixth consecutive year, the Single Fin Showdown is a unique surf contest that challenges surfers to ride retro surfboards at random while at the same time raising money for United Way of Martin County’s 2013-13 campaign.

The Showdown has raised $25,000 during the past five years for United Way’s Common Good Fund that supports everything from early learning opportunities to adult day care programs at 46 local nonprofit agencies.

The 2013 Single Fin Showdown took place on St Patrick’s Day weekend again this year at Stuart Beach, and featured seven divisions for surfers of all ages. Registration included an event T-shirt, as well as a chance to win one of many prize packs loaded with all kinds of surf-related gear.
