The Resolution of Independence

first_img UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 We all know about the Declaration of Independence.  Many have memorized it. We know the principal author was Thomas Jeffereson. And we know it was approved by the Second Continental Congress on July 4th, 1776.But the Declaration was, in reality, a press release issued jointly by the American Colonies.The real document that separated the Colonies from Great Britain was a resolution drafted and proposed by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia.  Lee’s Resolution, as it has become known, was short and to the point:“Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.”Lee proposed his Resolution on June 7, 1776.  It was seconded by John Adams. It was debated for several days. On July 2, Lee’s Resolution of Independence was approved by twelve of the thirteen colonies.Delegates from New York still were waiting on voting instructions and so they abstained on this vote.  On July 9 the New York Provincial Congress would vote to “join with the other colonies in supporting” independence.After passing the resolution of independence on July 2, Congress turned its attention to the text of the Declaration. Lee’s wording was added to the conclusion. The final text of the declaration was approved by Congress on July 4th.John Adams wrote this to his wife Abigail on July 3 about the Resolution of Independence:“The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”Adams’s prediction was off by two days. From the outset, Americans celebrated Independence Day on July 4, the date the much-publicized Declaration of Independence was approved, rather than on July 2, the date the resolution of independence was adopted.

The form of the new house is an extruded L shape, two storeys tall. The inside of the L is lined with windows that face a linear park & its canopy of trees to the south-east of the site. “The new house was designed around one long view,” says Peter, & it is as simple as that. All the rooms take advantage of it … The house is planned around views from the inside, yet the aesthetic focus is mainly on the exterior. The metal-clad upper storey, with its jutting, angled planes, is not mere sculptural play, however.

Keep in mind, though, that food safety begins in thegarden but doesn’t end there.In the kitchenWhen you prepare fruits and veggies to eat, don’t forget to usethe kitchen faucet. Hand-scrub firm produce such as apples,pears, tomatoes and bell peppers under running water.Spray root vegetables and tubers with water, scrub them with avegetable brush and then rinse them.Wash vegetables with rinds, such as watermelons and cantaloupes,too. If the surface isn’t clean, you can transfer bacteria to theflesh when you cut them.No one should get sick from eating produce from your garden. Youcan make sure they won’t by using good sanitation and followingsound gardening practices.Enjoy your garden produce. But remember, the best food safety inthe world can’t protect you from the ills of overindulgence.(Darbie Granberry is an Extension Service horticulturist withthe University of Georgia College of Agricultural andEnvironmental Sciences.) Use good personal hygiene.Don’t apply manure to your garden.Keep animals out of your garden.Use only drinking-quality water for irrigation.Use clean containers when you harvest. By Darbie GranberryUniversity of GeorgiaAlmost anything can make us sick, including pure water, if weconsume too much at one time. But what about the seriousillnesses we normally call “food poisoning”?The biggest fear has always been getting food poisoning frommeats. In the past few years, though, we’ve found that improperlygrown, packed or shipped fresh fruits and vegetables can lead toserious illness, too.Can vegetables from our own gardens make us sick? Possibly, ifthey’re contaminated with human pathogens such as hepatitis A,Salmonella and E. coli 0157:H7.The good news is that the chance of anyone in the United Statesgetting sick from garden vegetables is remote. Human pathogensdon’t occur naturally on vegetables.Safety keySo how do people sometimes get sick from eating produce?Contamination, contamination, contamination.Whenever produce is grown, packed or shipped under poor sanitaryconditions, there’s always the chance it will be contaminated andbecome a health hazard.The November 2003 outbreak of hepatitis A is a prime example.Green onions harboring the hepatitis virus caused more than 600illnesses and three deaths in Pennsylvania.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates thereare 76 million foodborne illnesses a year in the United States.Every year more than 325,000 people are hospitalized and 5,000people die from eating contaminated food.As you might guess, the greatest concern is for the fruits andvegetables you eat raw as snacks and in salads. Some scientistslink nearly as many foodborne illness cases to produce as topoultry, beef and fish combined.Simple stepsTo make sure no one gets sick from eating fruits and vegetablesfrom your garden:last_img read more

They offer a wide range of multi-platform terminals for retail betting, that combine the latest printing and scanning solutions with software intended to improve both customer satisfaction and the general gaming experience.The firm’s most recent innovation is ‘augmented reality’, introduced to the gaming world at last month’s ICE Totally Gaming conference. So what makes it such an interesting feature?“Augmented reality can help all software houses engage the interest of betting targets,” explains Custom Spa Communications Manager Alessandro Mastropasqua. It is hoped that the solution can increase sales and client numbers while reducing costs, and is being rolled out across the sphere of gaming, lottery and betting. Utilising elements of virtual reality, augmented reality increases information and content to offer a unique and elevated gaming experience.  “Augmented Solutions could also be used to make brochures, catalogues or gaming data sheets, competitions and lotteries more attractive and appealing, making the player’s first contact with the product/service unique, and standing out from the competition,” Mastropasqua added. “There are no limits at this point, the only one is from creativity. The technology makes a range of multimedia content available, which is displayed on the device, interacting in this way with reality, and augmenting it with endless options for solutions, images, data, information and videos in real time.”Far from the new kids on the block, Custom has 25 years of experience, with an annual production of 795,000 products, and five worldwide production sites – in Italy, Romania, China, Brazil and India. Looking to the future, there is a real excitement about the “2020 Industrial Plan”, driven by Custom’s Chairman and CEO Carlo Stradi. “The goal of Custom is to offer complete and reliable solutions that would save our clients from having to use their own resources, thus removing them from focusing on the main activity of their business,” says Stradi. Taking a practical approach to technological advancement, the firm hopes to improve industry efficiency, reliability and reduction of operating costs.last_img read more
