UNF artists reveal sculptures in Jacksonville’s oldest urban park – News – The Florida Times-Union

Olivia Warro hunched over a square concrete pad, drilling the last bolt in place to secure her 8-foot-6-inch sculpture. Warro, 23, spent four months building and welding her light gray and green piece called “Deer” out of steel pipes. “I was inspired by bringing some wildlife into downtown Jacksonville, bringing some green into the urban center,” Warro said. “It feels so dry sometimes in a city. . .” Recent UNF graduates Warro, Stephen Magyar and Jenn Peek sourced their own materials, engineered and then transformed their small sculptures a couple of feet tall into the large-scale models. After about a year of planning, designing and building, the sculptures were installed near the fountain area in Hemming Park on Monday where they will remain for a year. Jenny Hager, a UNF sculpture professor, said the process began last fall with a competition for the students to construct small models of items relating to native Florida plants and animals or local history and then present them to a committee. The committee of people from UNF, the Museum of Contemporary Art and members and artists of the downtown Jacksonville community were selected to vote...

In Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward, newly built modern on Boulevard aims to fetch $925K

This “exquisite” three-bedroom on the neighborhood’s south end was initially listed for $125K cheaper In Old Fourth Ward, this sleek contemporary residence that maximizes a slim corner lot first blipped the listings radar late last year, when it was under construction—and priced at $800,000 even. It’s back this week, now finished, with a $925,000 price tag that aims to set a new bar for the immediate area, as posted by Keller Knapp Realty. Within barking distance of local landmarks like bar-restaurant-dog-park Fetch and Church tavern, the “exquisite” three-bedroom, three-bathroom modern has claimed a vacant lot where Boulevard meets Gartrell Street, between Edgewood Avenue and Decatur Street. With a transit hub, the Beltline, and Edgewood Avenue food and drink options so close, the WalkScore here registers at a stellar 93. The home’s 2,444 square feet take a majority of the lot, with a two-vehicle carport (and EV charging capabilities) in the back. There’s said to be an automatic gate, but it’s not clear where that is. Highlights include the two elevated patios—off the master bedroom and front, with skyline views—the double-height living room, fixed speakers around every corner...

The cause? Bingeing on “nangs” — small canisters of nitrous oxide gas designed for whipping cream,

The cause? Bingeing on “nangs” — small canisters of nitrous oxide gas designed for whipping cream, but being misused as a recreational drug. Partygoers buy nangs (also known as nozzies, bulbs and whippets) to inhale the nitrous oxide inside the canister. It is a 20-second high. In a medical setting, nitrous oxide is useful. Dentists use it as an anaesthetic and it is administered to women in labour. “Very recently I had a 20-year-old patient whose brain appeared to have the same level of damage as an alcoholic who had been drinking for 40 years,” toxicologist Dr Andrew Dawson told 7.30. Dr Dawson, who is Director of the Poisons Information Centre at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, said the number of cases had risen alarmingly. “We have had a doubling of the number of calls from hospitals about significantly affected people from nitrous oxide exposure,” he said. “Those deaths can relate to anything from the exploding of the small cylinders, to people becoming hypoxic — that is, short of oxygen, from overuse,” Dr Dawson said. It has been used to get high for just about as long, beginning with the British upper class ̶...

There’s a certain visual irony in the fact that any discussion about cables is akin opening

There’s a certain visual irony in the fact that any discussion about cables is akin opening a can of worms. Few tech topics rile folks more than interconnects. Small wonder, given that cable prices run the gamut from bargain basement to penthouse suite, despite all doing fundamentally the same job. Well, we’re here to tell you that your choice of HDMI really does make a difference, but maybe not in ways you might first imagine…and that 8K is about to throw another spanner in the works. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) cables have been a hot potato for years now, thanks mainly to early price gouging from retailers. Keen to supplement revenue on hardware sales, unsuspecting buyers were often subjected to a hard sell in order to get overpriced cables into their shopping baskets.  While that particular hullabaloo has largely died away, the rollout of HDR has thrown an entirely new spotlight onto the issue of HDMI cable quality. So what should you look for when buying? How do specifications vary and can you really tell the difference between one HDMI cable and another?   Let’s get the easy stuff out of the way: if you have a bog-standard piece of HD kit t...

Sunshine Coast-based Terragen Holdings, which makes probiotic products for farmers, is looking to raise $20 million

Sunshine Coast-based Terragen Holdings, which makes probiotic products for farmers, is looking to raise $20 million in an initial public offering. A Sunshine Coast company that makes probiotic formulas for cows and soil is hoping to raise $20 million in an initial public offering. Terragen Holdings sells its Mylo live microbial cattle feed supplement to farmers in Australia and New Zealand that it says makes cattle heavier, healthier and stronger. The company also sells a soil conditioner called Great Land that’s produced under sterile fermentation conditions to produce high-quality bacteria useful for improving crop yield and health. “We’re using microbials to do a lot of the work that people for the last 50 years have used chemicals to do,” managing director Justus Hornburg told AAP. The bacteria is sourced from soil, plants and animals, then screened, tested and profiled in a laboratory and finally blended together at Terragen’s R&D facility in Coolum Eco Industrial Park. Terragen is also working to develop a teat conditioner to improve the udders of lactating production animals, as well as an anti-inflammatory product for dairy cattle and d...
