Why Sarasota, Florida, Has Never Been in the Eye of a Hurricane

by Taistealai Sarasota has not been a bull’s-eye for a major hurricane since reliable records began in 1871. There are several theories out there to explain this phenomenon. Long time resident Jim Lawson suggests that the reason Sarasota lucks out is its proximity to Pass-A-Grille and St. Pete Beach. The old reincarnated pirate has been protecting these areas for years. He has said as long as he is around Pass-A-Grille and St Pete Beach would never take a hurricane head on. Think about it how close has a hurricane come and then veer off at the last minute. He uses

At least that’s what the numbers suggest. Depending on the source, the average person obtains a 10-30% salary increase when changing jobs. Therefore, it’s no surprise that people are quitting their jobs more than ever before. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the proportion of Americans who quit their jobs hit a 17-year high in May at 2.4%, with the annual quit rate rising16.2% in 2009 to over 26% in 2017.

French city of Dunkirk tests out free transport – and it works

https://www.france24.com/en/20190831-france-dunkirk-free-transportation-bus-success-climate-cities?fbclid=IwAR3Mzk-mbm_FQ2MQcQLrwe3sjGYOJTmzAV10HioVZPYK7w7ZBFGLjJetMGw&ref=fb The city of Dunkirk in northern France launched a revamped bus system last year with a twist – it’s completely free. A new study shows that the programme is not only revitalising the city center but also helping the environment.

After the war, the port city was rebuilt as an industrial hub, with oil refineries and a major steel mill. Now the city (population

It’s high quality, accessible and affordable. France’s “système de santé” ranks among the best in the world. Despite this enthusiasm, it’s far from perfect and critics say the system is hemorrhaging money. So who pays for it? And what’s its long-term prognosis? In this episode of French Connections Plus, Genie Godula and Florence Villeminot check up on French healthcare. I can tell of similar circumstances that they share at the end of this.
