Military Camps

Posted on by

first_imgThe University of Georgia 4-H program has coordinated military dependent camps since 2010 at locations in Georgia and Florida. Teen dependents, ages 14-18, of military service members are invited to apply before May 1 for the two summer camps.“The summits offer military dependents an opportunity to build leadership and life skills in a high adventure environment,” said Laura Goss, Georgia 4-H Military Camp coordinator.  “Teenagers have the opportunity to have fun while connecting with teens to better understand their parent’s military service through targeted lessons, social interactions and service member volunteers. Youth gain independence, mastery and belonging.”UGA operates these two summer camps through the Military Teen Adventure Camps, a partnership funded by the Department of Defense between the Office of Military Community and Family Policy and the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture through a grant and cooperative agreement with Purdue University. Camps are open to dependents, ages 14-18, of military members currently serving in active or reserve components. Camp fees, including transportation from the closest major airport, are covered through grant funds. The available weeks include:Joint Component Teen Leadership Summit – June 14-19, 2020, Dahlonega, GeorgiaIslands Military Teen Leadership Summit – July 12-17, 2020, Jekyll Island, GeorgiaApplicants can learn more on the Joint Summit or the Islands Summit through the Georgia 4-H Military Partnership Camp pages and can apply through the Georgia 4-H Event Registration page. We ask that applicants apply by May 15th.The online application requires demographic information as well as short answers and essay responses. Applications will be reviewed by a committee and notifications of acceptance will be sent soon after.Most expenses (airfare and camp registration) are supported by the Military Teen Adventure Camps. Parents/guardians are responsible for transportation to the closest major airport, baggage fees and additional funds for snacks, souvenirs and limited travel-day snacks. Also, unaccompanied minor fees are covered on at-needs basis when funds are available. More information will be provided to those accepted to attend.   Youth are supervised during the week by well-trained staff in camping and youth development. Adult volunteers supplement the paid camp staff and include many service members, spouses and family members. All paid and volunteer staff complete youth protection training and undergo a background investigation in accordance with UGA policies.Military spouses and military members (retired or current) are encouraged to apply to serve as volunteers. Volunteers play a major role at camp through participating in activities, supervising youth, chaperoning cabins, assisting classroom time and other related roles. To apply to be an adult volunteer, visit georgia4h.org/militaryvolunteer or reach each out to a staff member at [email protected] 4-H empowers youth to become true leaders by developing necessary life skills, positive relationships and community awareness.

AP7 to report fossil fuel divestment hoax to police

Posted on by

first_imgSweden’s AP7, the SEK674bn (€64bn) default fund for the premium pension system, said it intends to file a report to police after being targeted yesterday by a sophisticated hoax, in which an unknown party purporting to be the fund itself distributed false information to media outlets.Fake news that the fund had taken a decision to divest from all fossil fuels and become carbon neutral by 2030 was then reported by IPE, one Swedish website, the French news agency AFP, and many international news outlets redistributing the AFP story.Johan Florén, AP7’s head of communications and ownership, told IPE: “We are going to try to make a report for the police. We are investigating this and and hopefully everything will become clear and we will then look into all the options.”IPE removed the false story from its website yesterday after being contacted by Florén to say the story was not true. The unknown perpetrators of the prank emailed journalists using the format of a press release closely resembling a genuine release from AP7, with the announcement also carried in English and Swedish on a website impersonating an official AP funds website.While the pension fund is taking action to remove remainders of the false information on social media and elsewhere online, Florén said there was a limited amount that could be done to guard against such attacks.“With this kind of online fraud, it’s very difficult to do anything about it. Often the perpetrators are hidden behind servers in other countries, for example,” he said.Asked who could be responsible for yesterday’s disinformation, Florén speculated the perpetrators could be environmental activists.“The AP funds have been subject to other attacks linked to the issue of sustainability, both online and physically,” he said.Two years ago, Swedish state pension buffer fund AP3 was targeted by activists from campaign group Greenpeace, which included one of their meeting rooms being occupied by protesters.Yesterday’s fake press release incident echoes the case in early 2019 when a spoof letter on climate change pretending to be from BlackRock founder Larry Fink was reported by the Financial Times and other media.last_img read more

Top two teams meet Thursday

Posted on by

first_imgSophomore defender Jessica Haidet is one of the leaders of USC’s solid back line this season. (Emily Smith | Daily Trojan)The No. 2 women’s soccer team will embark on its biggest challenge of the season as the Trojans travel north to face Cal on Thursday and No. 1 Stanford on Sunday.After shutting out Washington 3-0 over the weekend, the Trojans remain undefeated this season with a record of 8-0-1. Throughout the season, USC has dominated its opponents in almost every matchup. The Trojans have won games by controlling possession within the midfield, and creating opportunities for their forwards to pounce. Besides Florida State, other teams haven’t been able to maintain any kind of quality possession against the Trojan midfield. Moreover, when they do get any kind of possession, they have had a hard time getting past the Trojans’ backline. The center-back pairing of senior Ally Prisock and sophomore Jessica Haidet has been posing challenges to their opponents. USC takes on the Golden Bears on Thursday at noon. With a record of 4-4-1, Cal hasn’t had quite the same success as Stanford or USC this season; however, the Bears should not be overlooked — especially on the road. “Any time you go on the road in the Pac-12 it’s difficult. But Cal is a very good team with the ball,” head coach Keidane McAlpine said. “They can pass, they can move, they are very smart with the way they move the ball. We’re going to have to be defensively very, very organized.” McAlpine noted the Bears inconsistent performances, but he commended their passing game as one of the best in the conference. He stressed the importance of the Trojans playing their game and focusing on themselves to pull off the win.On Sunday, the Trojans will play Stanford at 1 p.m. Like the Trojans, the Cardinal stand undefeated on the year with a record of 8-0-1. The last time the Cardinal lost a match was in August 2017 to Florida, and they have gone 31 games undefeated since. However, both teams possess a winning mentality, having been the past two winners of the NCAA tournament. “Stanford [is] No. 1 for a reason,” McAlpine said. “They are going to be a difficult team to play. They’ve got so many [attacking personalities]. They’ve had some injuries so they are trying to figure some things out again and reorganize, but they are talent rich. [This will be] another benchmark game for us to see where we are as we press towards the end of the season.” This game will be all about which team can take advantage of opportunities, since both teams are solid defensively with talented midfield players. “There are going to be few chances in the game for both teams,” McAlpine said. “Both teams are good through the midfield. Both teams have good personalities, but it’s those composure moments in the box where there’s defending or attacking that are going to be the difference.” With two talented teams, this match appears to be one of the best games of the whole NCAA season.last_img read more
