Now in its sixth year, this annual event highlights the progress of the Central Florida Region’s economy as well as bring together businesses, expanding industries, and opportunities for economic growth. In addition, the Summit brings together various stakeholders both inside and outside of Orange County, including officials from other cities and counties and non-profit organizations.Orange County Commissioner Bryan NelsonThe Summit opened with an hour of networking and breakfast for over 600 guests and participants. Once all of the guests had arrived, the opening remarks for the program were given by Fred Kittinger, the Senior Associate Vice President of University Relations and Director of State and Local Government Affairs at the University of Central Florida (UCF), who introduced Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs. In her opening remarks, Mayor Jacobs highlighted Orange County’s strong success in promoting economic development and business, and how its success helps lead the nation in this arena. “By working together, we’re committed to creating a business infrastructure and economic climate that supports job creation, a flourishing creative class, and trained workforce, and that provides an opportunity for all,” Mayor Jacobs said.Following the opening remarks, Dr. Sean Snaith, the director of UCF’s Institute of Economic Competitiveness, a nationally recognized economist, and a past summit participant, was introduced to give his annual economic forecast highlighting the state of the economy at the state and local level; according to Dr. Snaith, the state of Orange County’s economy is strong and robust.

The region’s flourishing economy and business infrastructure, in addition to the region’s diverse and talented workforce, continues to aid Orange County’s upward trajectory of economic growth and progress.The Summit hosted a panel discussing funding and growing Central Florida’s tech enterprise sector. Moderated by Tim Giuliani, the President and Chief Executive Office for the Orlando Economic Partnership, the panel featured the following participants: Suneera Madhani, the Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Fattmerchant, a payment technology company specializing in saving businesses up to 40% on their credit card processing; Courtney Powell, the President and Owner of AceApplications, LLC, a technology solutions and staffing provider for entities; Shawn Seipler, CEO of Clean the World, an enterprise that offers sustainable, socially impactful programs to a global marketplace (with impact results in 118 countries); and Chris Whitlow, CEO of Edukate, Inc., a workplace financial wellness provider with the purpose to give every person access to expert financial guidance and help employers provide the best financial wellness benefits to help employees manage their financial stress, increase their productivity and live happier, healthier lives.

Image Courtesy of KEMA studioSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© João MorgadoThe intervention´s objective was to appreciate “the existing” and add to it. The “wet functions” were contained within rigid massive pre-existing brick walls, leaving all the “dry functions” in the remaining space. Further separation of functions was made by introducing 2 simple volumes defining the required functions. A black box, made from engineered coloured wood, created a technical zone together with a storage; a cork box, made from warm and acoustic cork panels, which created a private zone of double bedroom with direct connection to the exterior – both boxes made from sustainable, ecological materials produced in Portugal.Save this picture!© João MorgadoMaterials were a fundamental aspect of this project. We kept heavy brick arches, steel structure and concrete pillars supporting it and by introducing new elements to it. In this way we were able to emphasize the pre-existing industrial character. We played with contrasts of colors, temperature and sound. We intended to make it homey but still maintain the “industrial” identity, so we paired black, cold, noisy steel with bright-toned, warm and quiet cork.Save this picture!Floor PlanThroughout the process it was important for us not to lose the identity of the space. Since the local was a well known carpenter´s workshop, we decided to reuse all the wood left in the workshop and bring it back to life in a contemporary way, as a kitchen island top, bedside tables and exterior “pixel” wall – a composition made from over 14 different types of wood from all around the world.Save this picture!© João MorgadoAll of this resulted in a well defined space, with a memory of what it used to be.

Coronavirus live updates: Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp bans cities, counties from requiring masks

first_imgMyriam Borzee/iStockBy WILLIAM MANSELL, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The novel coronavirus pandemic has now killed more than 584,000 people worldwide.Over 13.5 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.The United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 3.4 million diagnosed cases and at least 137,419 deaths.Here is how the news is developing today. All times Eastern. Check back for updates.8:15 a.m.: NJ nursing homes allowing visitorsFamily members, legal guardians and support people can now visit residents at New Jersey’s long-term care facilities, the state’s Department of Health announced Wednesday.“I understand how stressful and heartbreaking it has been for so many families not to be able to visit their loved ones in person for more than three months now,” Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli said in a statement. “Reuniting families with their loved ones in these facilities is a critical step for the mental, physical, social and emotional well-being of these residents.”Visitors must wear masks, be screened for symptoms, get their temperature checked and maintain social distancing from other residents and staff.The long-term care facilities can only allow visitors if no COVID-19 cases have been reported on site for 28 days (two incubation periods), the department said.6:58 a.m..: Tulsa City Council passes mandatory mask ordinanceThe Tulsa City Council in Oklahoma has issued a mask mandate less than a month after President Donald Trump held a reelection rally at an arena in the city.The ordinance was passed with a 7-2 vote and is expected to be signed by Mayor G. T. Bynum on Thursday.“I am very grateful for the broad support of the City Council in approving this important ordinance. Our local health care leaders made clear how important this is, and the City of Tulsa listened,” Bynum said in a statement Wednesday night. “This pandemic continues to present us with difficult decisions that no elected official would ever want to make, but we will continue to do what we have to do to protect our local health care system.”The ordinance requires anyone over the age of 18 who will be in public places where social distancing is challenging to wear a mask.“The science is clear that the use of cloth face coverings are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings,” Tulsa Health Department Executive Director Dr. Bruce Dart said in a statement. “Wearing a mask not only considers others, but also allows us the freedom to go about our day during this new normal.”Tulsa’s face-covering mandate comes just a day after Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt, who attended Trump’s rally without wearing a mask, announced he has tested positive for the coronavirus.Oklahoma has more than 22,000 diagnosed COVID-19 cases, with at least 432 deaths.5:42 a.m..: Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp bans local mask rulesGeorgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp issued an executive order Wednesday night, which outright banned cities and counties in the state from issuing mask orders to help stop the spread of COVID-19.The move, despite neighboring states like Alabama requiring masks in public, voided mask mandates in 15 local jurisdictions in the Peach State where they had been implemented.While outlawing mask mandates, Kemp’s executive order “strongly” encourages all residents and visitors in Georgia to “wear face coverings as practicable while outside their homes or place of residence, except when editing, drinking or exercising outdoors.”Kemp’s order comes after Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottom issued an executive order requiring masks or face coverings in the city on July 8.The state, according to an internal Federal Emergency Management Agency memo obtained by ABC News, has a test-positivity rate greater than 10%, with record numbers of new cases in rural, urban and suburban areas alike.Georgia has had more than 127,838 diagnosed cases of coronavirus, with at least 3,091 deaths.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
