Public workers show students their world

first_imgSANTA FE SPRINGS – They usually work quietly behind the scenes, but public works employees play key roles in maintaining cities’ infrastructures. This week, though, the workers are coming out of the shadows for National Public Works Week. “We’re bringing awareness of what Public Works \ is involved in,” said Ted Spaseff, Santa Fe Springs’ director of municipal and utility services. “Police and fire are always visible, but we’re just kind of an unknown commodity.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsSpaseff and several public works associates visited Rancho Santa Gertrudes Elementary School on Tuesday to talk to students about just what it is the Public Works Department does. The students learned about different areas of public works, from pollution prevention and water conservation to traffic safety and emergency response procedures. “It shows us a part of the city we don’t see a lot,” said 9-year-old Oneica Trasvina, a third-grader. Trasvina said one of her favorite parts was the signals presentation, led by public works associate Joe Rodriguez. He gave the students a behind-the-scenes look at traffic signal operations, then told them about the importance of vehicle and pedestrian safety. Although a traffic signal might be green, “it doesn’t mean it’s safe for you to cross the street,” Rodriguez said. Third-grader Nancy Leon understood the consequences of not complying with traffic signals. “They help tell us that we don’t need to make crashes,” the 8-year-old said. “You press the button and it turns to red so the cars can stop and we could walk across safely.” Teacher Patricia Duran said the presentations help bring to life classroom lessons about energy, life cycles and recycling. “I think it’s good for kids because, as far as career opportunities, it gives them ideas on what they want to be,” she said.

Which Premier League side was the biggest long-ball merchant last season?

first_img4. West Bromwich Albion – 2,699 long balls (Finished 20th) 8. West Ham United – 2,567 long balls (Finished 13th) Winning football games is no longer the bare minimum for football fans nowadays, they want to be entertained.While Manchester City may have set the standard with their slick passing and moving, teams right the way through the Premier League clamour for attractive football.Take West Ham United, for example.Tasked with keeping the club in the division, David Moyes delivered a 13th-placed finish for the club with a robust, non-nonsense style of play – and paid for it with his job.Instead, they brought in Manuel Pellegrini, the suave and sophisticated Chilean with a penchant for opening up opposition defences with short, sharp passes.The thought of going long and playing for territory are considered antiquated; the adage of ‘if in doubt, put it out’ carries a stigma linked to dour and pragmatic football.But which sides were culpable of playing it long the most last season?Here at talkSPORT, we have collected data from the official Premier League website to see just who played long balls more frequently in the Premier League last season, and then compared it with their final league standing.To clarify, a long ball is defined by Opta statisticians as: “A forward pass that is 35 yards or more and is kicked into a space or area on the pitch rather than a precise pass aimed at a particular team-mate.”In contrast, a long pass is: “one that is 35 yards or more and is aimed at a particular team-mate. It does not have to be forward.”Scroll down to see just where your side ranked in the long ball table, starting from the fewest attempted and finishing with the side most culpable for hitting it long.20.

This eBook will help you Seize Your Sales Destiny, with or without a manager. Download Now There is a psychological phenomenon called impostor syndrome. When someone manifests impostor syndrome, they feel that aren’t worthy of the position in which they find themselves. They run from success because they fear being found out. What if they’re not really that good? What if someone finds out?The Real DealHustlers don’t have impostor syndrome. They never feel that they are undeserving of their position, their opportunities, their accolades, or their rewards. The simple reason hustlers don’t feel like an impostor is because they believe in themselves and their accomplishments. The hustler knows that it’s okay to take credit for what she’s done. She moves from one accomplishment to the next, never dismissing or diminishing her them.The poor non-hustler isn’t an impostor, but they feel like one. A lot of non-hustlers struggle to value themselves and their accomplishments. They don’t believe that their story is good enough. They don’t believe their accomplishments are big enough. They compare themselves to others who have done more and instead of being inspired feel smaller. They don’t know that the person with whom they are comparing themselves is more like them than different.Confidence in Who You AreHustlers look at their accomplishments and know that they create value. Because they value their accomplishments, they are confident in who they are. The confidence that comes from knowing who they are gives them confidence in what they do.Confidence is why hustlers are impervious to failure. The hustler learns from everything they do and tries again and again.Because the non-hustler doesn’t feel that their accomplishments are anything to speak of, they don’t feel confident in who they are or what they do. Where a hustler sees every accomplishment as the stepping-stone to the next, the non-hustler feels like an impostor, hoping not to be discovered.The hustler promotes themselves and their accomplishments. The non-hustler hides from his accomplishments, hoping no one asks any questions or looks any deeper.Your Self WorthThe reason hustlers achieve so much is because they have a high self-worth. Non-hustlers don’t value themselves enough, and their low self-worth is perhaps their greatest liability. Neither the hustler nor the non-hustler get what they deserve in life; both get exactly what they believe they deserve.Hustlers value themselves, and so do other people. You are worth more.last_img read more

6 Lies About Success

first_imgThere are many lies about success. It’s easy to believe these lies, and doing so will distort your perception of what real success is.It’s all about the money. Success isn’t all about the money, even though that is what some people believe success to be. It isn’t about money, even though that is how the media portrays success. There are plenty of people with money that aren’t successful when measured on any other scale. No one would call Mother Theresa or Gandhi failures, even though they wouldn’t fare well on this scale. It’s not money.It’s not about not having money. If success isn’t only about money, money is a scorecard of sorts. It is a reflection of the value that you create. Money provides you with security, experiences, and choices. Money also allows you to give back at a greater level. Not having any money doesn’t guarantee that you are successful, and there are plenty of people with no money who also aren’t successful on any other scale. It’s not about not having money.It’s about being popular. Some people with a measure of fame are perceived to be successful. And on that one measure, you might believe that they are successful. But fame is no indication of success either. Many of the people with names that are well-recognized are not successful when measured another way. It’s not fame.It’s about being beautiful on the outside. There are people who are beautiful on the outside that are hideous on the inside. Time destroys physical beauty. Time destroys one’s athletic prowess, too. But time can never destroy true success. It’s not physical beauty.It’s about being smart. Some of the smartest people you will ever meet will also be horrible to other human beings. They might have parchment, prizes, and awards for their intellectual prowess, but none of those prove success outside of a very, very narrow measurement. It’s not intellect.It’s about natural talent. Talent is no sign of success. Many of the most talented people never do anything with their talents, and many people with far less talent do more with what little they have. It’s not about having talent.The truth about success is that it is defined by each of us individually. My success is not the same as your success.My success is about living up to my potential, making the contribution I am here to make, and doing something meaningful with my life.Your success is about living up to your potential, making the contribution you are here to make, and doing something meaningful with your life.last_img read more
