Last week Dr. Dan Adams announced after carefully studied reflection, he has decided not to seek re-election as an Evansville City Councilman At-Large in the Fall of 2019.In announcing his decision not to run for re-election he said; “it will give prospective candidates, trying to make up their minds to run, may know early that there is an opening for them to contest.”Dr. Adams also added, “for more than a decade, I have genuinely enjoyed serving the people of this remarkable city”. “I thank those who supported and criticized me, as they both leavened and tempered my performance wisely”. “I shall work as hard for you in my last year on council, as I have in the past eleven”. “I will seek other fields of endeavor, as I have no intention of becoming a recluse”.In October 2015 Herbert Dan Adams, MD, MBA, & at-large Evansville City Council member was chosen as an “OUTSTANDING COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD” WINNER by the City-County Observer for his diligent efforts as a councilman that paved the way for the enhanced smoking restrictions adopted by the Evansville City Council in 2012.In 2011 Dr. Adams along with Dr. Steven Becker, MD, the Director and Associate Dean of Indiana School Medicine-Evansville was quietly working on attracting the IU Medical School to locate to Evansville. Because of the due diligence of Dr. Becker and Dr. Adams trying to convince our local and State elected officials to support the IU Medical School is now a reality.Dr. Adams a1982 transplant who has adopted Evansville as his home eloquently states his current goal in life is “to be the BEST At-Large Member of the Evansville City Council I can”. In addition to his duties as a Councilman, Dr. Adams has a full life serving the community on the Evansville Airport Board, Port Authority, as a substitute high school teacher EVSC; a Lecturer at Signature School, the University of Evansville, the USI School of Nursing, and the IU Medical School – Evansville.Prior to giving in to the internal compass that pointed to public service, Dr. Adams spent his life as a cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon in the Evansville area for 26 years after 7 years in the same capacity in Montana. Prior to entering the world of private medicine, Dr. Adams served the United States of America as a ship’s surgeon on the USS John F. Kennedy and as a Commander in the United States Naval Reserve. During his service, Dr. Adams was awarded the Navy Achievement Medal for Professional Excellence.Dr. Adams was graduated from Yale University in American Studies and Pre-Med before having his MD conveyed onto him by the Harvard Medical School. Following medical school, he served as an intern at the Brigham Hospital in Boston and completed residencies at the University of Pennsylvania. After his time as an active member of the military, Dr. Adams completed fellowships at the Texas Heart Institute and the Baylor University Medical Center. Recognizing the benefit of a business education to complement his medical practice Dan completed an Executive MBA in Health Care Management at the Olin School of Business, St. Louis, MOCivic duty has long been a good habit of Dr. Adams who has served in the promotion of both soccer and hockey in Evansville and Missoula, Montana. He takes pride in his membership in the Evansville Northside Kiwanis Club as a devoted soccer coach at the Boys & Girls Club.It was his time as a surgeon that inspired the passion for public health and the candid willingness to share the truth about the positive health implications of restricting smoking in public. There are many people who were instrumental in the passing of the Evansville Smoking Ordinance in 2012. Without the efforts on the City Council by Dr. H. Dan Adams, this successful accomplishment may have taken much longer than it did and for this, we congratulate Dr. Adams for his tireless promotion of public health and good public policy.SUMMARY OF COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT OF DR.

Guitarist Scott Hachey and keyboardist Casey Russell traded off explosive solos before moving forward with “Always Cool”.Ahead of Thursday’s show, Magic Beans noticed that their close friend and musical compadre Andy Frasco was in town to join comedian Todd Glass for his stand-up set. Midway through their set, the four-piece rock powerhouse noticed that Frasco walked in the door of the venue and immediately invited him on stage for a cover of Talking Head‘s “Girlfriend Is Better”. Frasco started conducting the quartet, as he hopped about the stage with a microphone in hand. Moving back into their usual four-piece arrangement, Magic Beans rounded out their main frame with “Do Your Thing” and “Inventor”. Following a brief moment to catch their breaths, the band reemerged to offer up a two-song encore with a cover of Al Green‘s “Take Me To The River” and their own “Off Leash”.Scott Hachey shared his thoughts on the funky collaboration. He explains,You never know what’s going to happen when Andy Frasco gets on your stage, but you know it’s going to turn up.Watch Magic Beans cover Talking Heads’ “Girlfriend Is Better” with Andy Frasco below:Magic Beans ft.

On December 9, Defense Minister Juan Carlos Pinzón and the military high command activated the Amazonas Air Group (GAAMA) in Leticia. “This presence in such a remote location of our geography is nothing other than a symbol of the Armed Forces’ contribution to Colombia’s development,” Pinzón affirmed. The defense minister explained that the presence of government forces is a guarantee of the arrival of the other elements of the state: “Doctors, prosecutors, and judges arrive on these Air Force transport planes, but at the same time, so do the machinery and materials needed for the development of these regions,” the minister noted. He also highlighted the significance of this airbase for defending the country’s sovereignty and for the success of the fight against drug trafficking and terrorism. “When we see all these planes that are here, they not only guarantee our sovereignty and our fight against drug trafficking and terrorism; there’s also a guarantee of the arrival of the state.” Finally, Minister Pinzón congratulated the Air Force for its efficiency and effectiveness in the fight against the threats to the country’s security and highlighted the leadership of its commandant, General Tito Pinilla. “The Colombian Air Force is making an ongoing, telling, and determined contribution to the fight against the various manifestations of crime and those who violate the rights of the Colombian people,” Pinzón declared.

ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Customer experience. Security. Ubiquity. These, says Matt Barr, Group Head, US Emerging Payments at MasterCard, make up the “holy trinity” of payments. In a recent interview with MPD CEO Karen Webster, Barr and Shannon Johnson, SVP Head of Checking & Payments, SunTrust offered a behind-the-scenes look at tokenization and how its being used to solve for that trinity. While its has been around for awhile and only recently been made visible thanks to Apple Pay, they offered their views from their perches on how tokenization as whole will transform payments and digital payments as we know it.KW: Let’s make sure we’re all on the same playing field when it comes to the framework of tokenization – it is different. There is the device account number, and then there is the one-time transactional account number that is generated when a transaction is initiated. So set is straight – how do these two things work? MB: Tokenization and what’s been introduced through the MasterCard Digital Enablement Service is, we think, very transformational. The end-goal as we see it is that tokenization goes as far as saying that the only place you’ll see a traditional PAN in the future is on a plastic card. Every MasterCard transaction through any channel will eventually be conducted through the use of tokens.What we’re creating is the ability for a device account number to be attached to a smart device. Each of the devices of a consumer’s would have its own unique device account number. So that’s how it will promulgate.The use of the one-time transaction accounts is really building off of the EMV capability that’s being introduced. EMV is a critical foundation technology in that it does use dynamic codes for transactions as a way to make them more secure. So it’s taking that EMV capability, and complementing it with these device account numbers so that when a transaction occurs you’ve got the combination of those two powerful capabilities to create a unique transaction. If that token is removed from that device, it’s useless to initiate a transaction through any other channel. continue reading »

Press Release, PSA, Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and state emergency management officials are reminding Pennsylvanians to prepare and continue to monitor weather conditions as a series of strong storms continues across much of the commonwealth through tomorrow.The National Weather Service reports that beginning this afternoon and lasting through midnight, there is a threat of severe thunderstorms that can produce damaging wind and hail, along with a few tornadoes and isolated flash flooding. Flooding could continue after the rain has stopped, so motorists should be aware of the potential for travel disruptions through the overnight hours and remember that flooding can be harder to see at night. There is a renewed threat for similar conditions Thursday across much of the southern half of the commonwealth.“With damage from flooding and tornadoes last night, we know the threat of severe weather is real and Pennsylvanians need to be prepared,” Gov. Wolf said. “Please remember to use caution and stay tuned into weather reports for any important news as inclement weather develops. A smartphone can be a great resource for updates, but don’t rely on just one device. Ensuring you can receive updates from multiple sources during bad weather is very important.”“We will continue to reach out to county emergency management personnel through our 24-hour watch center, as well as our area office staff,” said Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency Acting Director Randy Padfield. “We also provide updates to our state agency partners so that we can move quickly if state resources are needed.”Always follow the guidance of local emergency personnel or law enforcement if you encounter roadblocks or closures. State law mandates that motorists who drive around or through signs or traffic control devices closing a road or highway due to hazardous conditions will have two points added to their driving records and be fined up to $250. Penalties are higher if emergency responders are called to rescue motorists who disregard warning signs. SHARE Email Facebook Twitter May 29, 2019 Gov.
