“2 Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.

For safety’s sake: 10 tips for safe walking in snow and ice
Here’s looking at you kid
Hoof warmin’ by *CarligerCarl on deviantART
“Falls account for more than one million injuries in the U.S. annually. There are four types of walking accidents with the most common being the slip and fall. That's the type of fall that happens when you fall due a surface not cleared of snow or ice.

Be safe following these tips from the Dec. 12 issue of CleanLink News, provided by Gary Cook, manager, housekeeping and custodial services. The tips are from the Snow and Ice Management Association, the national nonprofit organization representing the snow removal industry.
  1. Wear proper footwear. Proper footwear should place the entire foot on the surface of the ground and have visible treads. Avoid a smooth sole and opt for a heavy treaded shoe with a flat bottom.
  2. Accessorize to see and be seen. Wear sunglasses so that you can see in the reflective light of the snow. Also, wear a bright coat or scarf so that drivers can easily see you.
  3. Plan ahead. While walking on snow or ice on sidewalks or in parking lots, walk consciously. Instead of looking down, look up and see where your feet will move next to anticipate ice or an uneven surface. Occasionally scan from left to right to ensure you are not in the way of vehicles or other hazards.
  4. Make sure you can hear. While seeing the environment is important, you also want to be sure you can hear approaching traffic and other noises. Avoid listening to music or engaging in conversation that may prevent you from hearing oncoming traffic or snow removal equipment.
  5. Anticipate ice. Be wary of thin sheets of ice that may appear as wet pavement (black ice). Often ice will appear in the morning, in shady spots or where the sun shines during the day and melted snow refreezes at night.
  6. Walk steps slowly. When walking down steps, be sure to grip handrails firmly and plant your feet securely on each step.
  7. Enter a building carefully. When you get to your destination such as school, work, shopping center, etc., be sure to look at the floor as you enter the building. The floor may be wet with melted snow and ice.
  8. Be careful when you shift your weight. When stepping off a curb or getting into a car, be careful since shifting your weight may cause an imbalance and result in a fall.
  9. Avoid taking shortcuts. Shortcuts are a good idea if you are in a hurry, but may be a bad idea if there is snow and ice on the ground. A shortcut path may be treacherous because it is likely to be located where snow and ice removal is not possible.
  10. Look up. Be careful about what you walk under. Injuries also can result from falling snow/ice as it blows, melts, or breaks away from awnings, buildings, etc.
Following these tips will help ensure that you survive the snow and ice season safely.”

please replace it with a heating floor pad

Please decrypt: New Year was raised in this
Ruthless parade | Tsuruko @ pause [pixiv]
“Campus Services and the Sustainability Committee would like to discontinue the use of space heaters in the future.

Space heaters cause several problems for facilities when used in conditioned/occupied spaces. The problems include safety concerns, electrical consumption cost, impact on HVAC systems, stresses on electrical infrastructure and the operational cost of maintenance calls.

Instead of using a space heater, employees should call Campus Services at ext. 3710 to have them check the space temperature. Then if the employee still feels the space is not comfortable, layered clothing is suggested followed by the use of a heated floor pad instead of a space heater.

Though the purchase price is about the same, a typical space heater uses a minimum of 1,000 watts per hour, whereas a heating pad uses 100 watts per hour. Heating floor pads save energy, reduce maintenance calls and are much safer. Typical savings would be $50 a year per conversion from space heater to heating floor pad.

Floor heating pads are available from a variety of retailers and online sources.”

Here’s what happened in the Firefly universe after Serenity
“Writer Zack Whedon has spilled the beans on where the crew of the Serenity will find themselves when Dark Horse releases the sequel comic, subtitled Leaves in the Wind, this January: the crew is on the run (of course), the Alliance is still in charge, Jayne is missing, and Zoe is pregnant.”

Sure you won’t change your Mind?

Especially since I have not seen you today, I appreciate the invite, but I apologize because I have made plans to visit Denton tonight. I also forgot to set the DVR yesterday.

I began an interaction with a sales representative, who was called away to assist a waiting customer, so after I waited forty minutes, and stood in their showroom for another five minutes, and promptly left. He gave me a call back, and I returned, yet I was too late to receive any test drive or tickets.
