Public Called to Participate in Conversation About Implications of Proposed Palmetto Pipeline

Public Called to Participate in Conversation About Implications of Proposed Palmetto Pipeline

(SAVANNAH, GA) Emergent Savannah announces The Palmetto Pipeline World Cafe to be held on Monday, May 4 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Sentient Bean Coffee Shop, located at 13 East Park Avenue. The World Cafe is a conversation model that encourages a diverse group of people to discuss different sides of issues. Emergent Savannah invites the public to join the dialog regarding the proposed Kinder Morgan “Palmetto” pipeline.

Proposed by the private Texas-based company Kinder Morgan, the Palmetto Pipeline is a 360 mile pipeline that would transport refined petroleum products from Baton Rouge, LA through North Augusta, SC, across the Savannah River and parts of Coastal GA, including sensitive wetland areas, to end at Jacksonville, FL. Not only are citizens concerned with the environmental and economic associated risks, but Kinder Morgan is facing criticism on their silence towards the efforts to enforce eminent domain on local landowners. The final Georgia Department of Transportation public hearing to determine if Kinder Morgan will be granted the power of eminent domain is scheduled for Thursday, May 7, at the Waynesboro Campus of Augusta Technical College, located at 216 Highway 24 South, Waynesboro, GA 30830. 

The Palmetto Pipeline World Cafe starts at 6:30 p.m. with a fifteen-minute overview of the project and it’s impact, moving into the World Café discussions and a moderated Q/A session, to conclude at 8:30 p.m. Participants are invited to walk around to The American Legion Post 135 bar to continue the conversation and take action after.

Immediate seating is limited to forty spaces. It is recommended to arrive early.

For more information on the World Cafe and Emergent Savannah, visit EmergentSavannah.org. For more information on the issues surrounding the Palmetto Pipeline, visit Pushbackthepipeline.com .

Businesses Beware: Mobilegeddon Might Affect Your Google Search Rankings

Businesses Beware: Mobilegeddon Might Affect Your Google Search Rankings
By Lauren Dingus

Google has many algorithms they use to serve the most relevant search results to you, and they update them around 500 times a year. These updates usually fly under the radar, and do not have any significant impact on the ranking of your business website, but the announcement from Google on Tuesday, April 21 has made everyone’s ears perk up and pay attention as techies warn of a looming “mobilegeddon.”

The effects of this change will influence search results worldwide in a significant way. For businesses, knowing the details of this update can help explain changes in ranking, and the amount of organic search traffic your website receives.

Mobile use officially surpassed desktop use by Americans as of February 2014. This means that potential customers are more likely to search for you via their mobile device than on their computer. Google’s new update will now reward mobile-friendly websites by giving them a higher rank when a search is conducted on a mobile device.

With the majority of your potential customers accessing the internet via tablet or smart phone, not having a mobile solution for your website is no longer an option. And, as the number of screen sizes grow, making your website responsive becomes crucially important to the success of your business.

What is Responsive Design?

Responsive design is the practice of building websites on a fluid grid that adjusts to the screen resolution of any device: smartphones, tablets, laptops and more. Your website will automatically adapt to give potential customers the best viewing experience regardless of what device they are using.

Benefits of Responsive Design

1. Avoid a high bounce rate: 48% of users say that if a website is not responsive, it is a sign to them that the company does not care.

2. Reach more customers: Over half of all local searches are done on a mobile device. Ensure that potential customers are able to easily interact with your site on their mobile device.

3. Better user experience: Have you ever viewed a website where you had to zoom in and scroll around the page to view all of the text and images? How long did you stay on this page before getting frustrated and leaving? A responsive website will give your viewers a pleasant mobile experience by adjusting to their screen size.

4. Convert more viewers into customers: 67% of customers were more likely to purchase products or services from a mobile-friendly website.

5. Save time and money: There is no extra cost of developing and maintaining a separate mobile site, so all of your time and resources can be spent making your company website the best it can be.

6. Avoid duplicate content: Having a separate mobile site will cause you to have the same content repeated twice. Google negatively ranks websites that have duplicate content.

7. Benefit from one URL: When your website is accessible from one URL, it is easier for viewers to find, share, and interact with your website.

8. Google officially recommends responsive site: Google’s Web Master Trends Analyst has gone on record saying responsive websites are easier for Google to crawl and index.

And now, Google has released a significant new ranking algorithm that will not only label your site as mobile-friendly, but will demote your website if it is not mobile-friendly, placing you lower in search results than your mobile-friendly competitors. The algorithm will take a few days to a week to take effect globally.

The fastest way to see if your website is mobile-friendly is to pull up your site on your phone. You can also use Google’s mobile friendly testing tool (https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/) if you are still unsure. This tool will give you a yes or no answer to whether or not Google views your website as mobile-friendly.

Google determines if a page is mobile-friendly every time it’s crawled and indexed. Once you implement a mobile solution, like a responsive design, you can ask Google to re-crawl and index your site, and Google will become aware of the change.

I want to stress though, that while the mobile-friendly change is important, Google will continue to use a variety of qualifications to rank your website. The intent of the search query is still a very strong signal. Be assured, if your site contains high quality content that is relevant to what people will search for, then it can potentially maintain a high rank if it is not mobile-friendly.

Citizens Called to Public Hearing on Proposed Palmetto Pipeline Threat – May 7 in Waynesboro

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

Citizens Called to Public Hearing on Proposed Palmetto Pipeline Threat on Thursday, May 7 in Waynesboro

www.palmettopipeline.com

(WAYNESBORO, GA) Citizens of the 12 counties affected by the proposed Palmetto Pipeline route are being asked by the coalition, Push Back the Pipeline, to take a final stand against builder Kinder Morgan and the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) permitting process.

The Push Back the Pipeline Coalition is inviting members of the public to attend the final GDOT hearing at 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 7 at the Augusta Technical College – Burke County Campus located at 216 GA-24, Waynesboro, GA 30830.

At the only other public hearing on Tuesday, April 21 at the Richmond Hill City Center, a crowd of 600 landowners, business owners, environmentalists and concerned citizens attended in an effort to raise questions and concerns to GDOT.

Kinder Morgan, a Houston-based energy infrastructure company, is seeking needed approvals to construct a 210-mile pipeline across Georgia for delivery of petroleum products from the Gulf Coast to the South East. Because 202 miles of the proposed route are on private property, Kinder Morgan requires GDOT to issue a certificate of public convenience and necessity, which if approved, authorizes them to condemn the private property of 398 landowners and cannot be appealed. Time is running out on the 90-day period to fight the application and the GDOT public hearing on Thursday, May 7, is the last chance for the public to confront Kinder Morgan and GDOT representatives with unanswered questions.

Top Reasons Why Citizens Against the Palmetto Pipeline:
• Eminent Domain for a Private Company is WRONG.
• Big Oil Monopoly = Higher prices at the pump.
• 250 Georgia jobs lost.
• Private Property will be TAKEN.
• Georgia deserves answers from Kinder Morgan not Empty Promises.
• Pipeline would endanger rivers, marshes and wetlands.
• Palmetto pipeline is not earthquake proof; Savannah and Coastal Georgia run along a fault line and are exposed to seismic risk.

DIRECTIONS TO MEETING:
• FROM GA-121 S/US-25 S:
– Follow GA-121 S/US-25 S
– Continue onto US-25 BYP S/Burke Veterans Parkway
– Turn right onto GA-24 N
– Destination will be on the left

• FROM GA-56 S:
– Take US-25 BYP S/Burke Veterans Parkway/Burke Veterans Pkwy
– Turn right onto GA-24 N
– Destination will be on the left

• GA-80 S/Waynesboro Rd:
– Continue to follow GA-80 S
– Slight left onto GA-24 S/GA-80 S
– Turn right onto GA-24 S/S Liberty St
– Continue to follow GA-24 S
– Destination will be on the right

• GA-24 S:
– Continue to follow GA-24 S
– Turn right onto GA-24 S/S Liberty St
– Destination will be on the right

INFORMATION ON EMINENT DOMAIN
The Fifth Amendment states that private property shall not be taken for public use without just compensation. In the past ten years, massive restructuring of the eminent domain rules to protect owners has occurred with 47 states. Nine years ago, Executive Order 13406 was issued by President George W. Bush, stating: “It is the policy of the United States to protect the rights of Americans to their private property, including by limiting the taking of private property by the Federal Government to situations in which the taking is for public use, with just compensation, and for the purpose of benefiting the general public and not merely for the purpose of advancing the economic interest of private parties to be given ownership or use of the property taken.” However, it is the right of the states to make their own decisions about what qualifies as public use.

PROPOSED PIPELINE ROUTE THROUGH GEORGIA:
Richmond, 2 miles
Burke, 25 miles
Screven, 34 miles
Effingham, 39 miles
Chatham, 12 miles
Bryan, 7 miles
Liberty, 18 miles
Long, 2 miles
McIntosh, 17 miles
Glynn 24 miles
Camden, 18 miles
Charlton, 12 miles

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Linked to Oral Cancer
By Angela C. Canfield DDS

Nearly two thirds of Americans over the age of 35 have some form of chronic gum infection, also known as periodontal disease or gingivitis. This is particularly concerning when you consider the connection between chronic gum infections and potentially life threatening diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and even some types of cancer. Additionally, every sixty minutes, a person dies from oral cancer. The disease is typically associated with long-term tobacco use, but it is becoming more frequent in young adults who have never smoked, but who may have contracted a common virus.

Besides tobacco use, the risk factors that could lead to oral cancer include DNA abnormalities or family history. But the main cause, especially in young adults who don’t smoke, is the human papillomavirus (HPV), which may be spread by sexually active people through intimate contact. HPV is the leading cause of cervical cancer, which was once the leading cause of cancer deaths for women in the United States. Now that women routinely get PAP tests, which provide early detection of conditions that could lead to cervical cancer, those cancer rates are on the decline. In fact, these days, a person is three times more likely to die from oral cancer than cervical cancer.

To diagnose and treat periodontal infections before they have a chance to cause systematic health problems, dental professionals frequently use a diagnostic test called DNA-Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR).

This is a simple oral rinse collection that takes only thirty seconds, but allows early detection, symptom reversal and even prevention from those diseases. Salivary diagnostics helps obtain precise evidence about periodontal disease and oral HPV. This allows a more accurate diagnosis and determines the most effective treatment options.

Anyone aged 18 and older should be tested annually. It is possible to have oral infections or gum disease and have no warning signs. That is one reason why regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are very important. Good dental care at home is also essential to help keep gum disease from becoming more serious or recurring. Remember to brush your teeth twice a day, clean between your teeth daily, eat a balanced diet, and schedule regular dental visits for a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Dr. Canfield is licensed by the Georgia Board of Dentistry and the National Board of Dentist. She owns and practices at two dental offices: Premier Dental Designs located in Rincon, GA, and Sandfly Family Dental in Savannah, GA.

Savannah Filmmakers Moving Forward with Executive Reorganization

Savannah Filmmakers Moving Forward with Executive Reorganization

(SAVANNAH, GA) Savannah Filmmakers has announced the appointment of a president, the formation of a Board of Directors and plans to move forward with several new projects over the next few months.

The mission of the Savannah Filmmakers is to promote the film community within Savannah and the greater Coastal Empire through advocacy and action via education outreach and collaboration efforts. One of the group’s goals is to present awareness and training events to help those interested in becoming involved in the local filmmaking industry learn more about resources available to them.

“The primary purpose of Savannah Filmmakers is not to make movies, rather it is to make Savannah a preferred destination for those who make movies,” said business attorney Charles Bowen, founder of The Bowen Law Group. Bowen was recently appointed to serve on the Savannah Filmmakers’ Board as ex officio attorney, and is assisting with the finalization of the group’s nonprofit status.

“As a nonprofit, the organization will have better opportunities to seek grants and donations in funding our mission,” said David Harland Rousseau, who was recently appointed to be the organization’s president. “Filmmakers want to hire crews and background performers who know what they’re doing, and that’s where we come in, providing the networking and educational opportunities for locals eager to learn how to do it right.”

The group has presented several writing and acting workshops in the past and recently held a safety awareness seminar following the death of Sarah Jones on a South Georgia film set in 2014. It plans to offer similar events in the future.

“We’re a grassroots organization, promoting the efforts of independent filmmakers, but we also support casting directors for larger films like SpongeBob,” explained Rousseau, referencing The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, the 2015 animated/live action adventure comedy filmed in Savannah last year. “We reach out to carpenters, electricians, accountants and others who have skills that are in high demand in filmmaking. We try to help people plug in where they can.”

In addition to Rousseau and Bowen, members of the Savannah Filmmakers’ newly-appointed Board of Directors include: Phillip Aultman (Secretary), Rebecca Etheridge (Treasurer), Bernie Ask, Craig Beck, Mehmet Caglayan, John Deifer, William Hammargren (ex officio), Jon Hudson, Jane King, Beth Graves Nelson, Benjamin Reid Phillips, Jody Schiesser and Tony Simmons Jr.

Rousseau noted, “We are working with and in support of the Savannah Film Office and other groups like Savannah Women in Film and Television (SWIFT) to ensure Savannah becomes known as the premiere place for film production.”

ABOUT SAVANNAH FILMMAKERS: Savannah Filmmakers promotes the film community within Savannah, Georgia, and the greater Coastal Empire through advocacy and action via education, outreach, and collaboration efforts.

ABOUT CHARLES BOWEN: Based out of Savannah, Charles Bowen is a business attorney who focuses on commercial, banking and manufacturing law and also offers comprehensive mediation services. Bowen attended Mercer University in Macon, Georgia where he graduated summa cum laude with honors in both psychology and political science. Upon graduating from Georgetown University Law Center in 1995, Bowen moved to Savannah and established a corporate law practice. He has received the Martindale-Hubbell® AV® Preeminent™ rating, the highest rating based upon confidential surveys sent to other attorneys. Also, Bowen has been selected by the members of the State Bar of Georgia as one of Georgia Trend’s 12th Annual Legal Elite for December 2014 in two categories: Business Law and Corporate Law.

The American Red Cross Announces Third Annual Lori Dunham Gordon Memorial Blood Drive

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

The American Red Cross Announces Third Annual Lori Dunham Gordon Memorial Blood Drive

(SAVANNAH, GA) On Saturday, April 25, The American Red Cross will host the third annual Lori Dunham Gordon Memorial Blood Drive at the Savannah Mall, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The blood drive will be located on the lower level of the Savannah Mall, near Center Court between the GNC and Tech Life. Donors will be entered to win several giveaways, including a 32-inch TV and a free oil change. This year’s goal for the drive is 25 units. Appointments are encouraged at redcrossblood.org, searching the Sponsor Code SAVMall.

“My wife died from colon cancer at a very early age,” Mr. Gordon, the organizer for this blood drive said. “She was a nurse, who loved to help people. During her treatment, she needed several blood transfusions, which would not have been possible without the help of the Red Cross. I started this blood drive as a way to pay-it-forward to other patients.”

According to The American Red Cross, every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. One donation can help save the lives of up to three people. Although an estimated 38% of the U.S. population is eligible to donate, less than 10% actually do each year.

“By the time Lori was diagnosed, the cancer was already in stage four,” Mr. Gordon said. “Through events like our blood drive, I am fighting for early awareness. Everyone, men and women, should get colon checks at 40 not 50. We were very thankful for the blood that was available for Lori. This blood drive will help others to get better by creating a supply for the American Red Cross.”

“Blood donors play an integral role in the delivery of modern healthcare,” said Colleen Waldorf, American Red Cross Donor Recruitment Representative. “Many life-saving medical treatments and procedures involve blood transfusions and would not be possible without a safe and reliable blood supply.”

To donate, individuals must be 17 years or older, and weigh at least 110 pounds. It is suggested that donors drink plenty of fluids, wear clothing with sleeves that can easily be rolled up, and bring a list of medications that may be in their system. For more information about the donation process, visit http://www.redcrossblood.org/donating-blood/donation-process#t1

ABOUT THE AMERICAN RED CROSS BLOOD PROGRAM
Started in 1940, under the leadership of Dr. Charles Drew, the American Red Cross supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply, and provides blood for patients in approximately 2,700 hospitals across the U.S. The Red Cross makes blood available to any patient who needs it — patients are not required to find donors to replace the blood they use (a practice common in Europe and some U.S. blood banks) allowing the patient and their family to focus on recovery. Eighty percent of the blood donations given to the Red Cross are collected at mobile blood drives set up at community organizations, companies, high schools, colleges, places of worship or military installations. The remaining 20 percent are collected at fixed Red Cross donor centers. The American Red Cross works with more than 50,000 blood drive sponsors each year to hold more than 200,000 blood drives, providing convenient locations for people to give blood.

Georgia Architects’ Association Grants Design Award to Felder & Associate

Georgia Architects’ Association Grants Design Award to Felder & Associates 
Savannah Architecture Firm Honored for Work on The Grey

(SAVANNAH, GA) Felder & Associates is pleased to announce the architecture firm has been recognized with the AIA Georgia 2015 Design Award in Renovation for its rehabilitation project of the historic Greyhound Bus Depot, now a new restaurant, The Grey. The Georgia Association of The American Institute of Architects (AIA) presented its 2015 Honor and Design Awards on April 11 in Atlanta.

Located at 109 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard within Savannah’s Historic District, the property was originally designed by architect George D. Brown in the Streamline Moderne style of architecture and was constructed between 1937-1939.

“The Grey is a rare and excellent example of this style of architecture in Savannah and I am very pleased that our work in rehabilitating this property was recognized by AIA Georgia,” said Brian Felder, AIA, managing principal of Felder & Associates. “Our priority was to preserve the distinctive features, finishes and construction techniques, and match new features to the old in design, color and texture.”

Replacements of old missing features were substantiated by pictorial and documentary evidence, and included replication of historic materials as recommended by the National Park Service and following the Secretary of Interior Standards for Rehabilitation. Gretchen Callejas, the project architect for Felder and Associates, ensured the proposed interior and exterior modifications remained true to the original design and those designs met the Department of Interior guidelines for preservation. The space was conceived by New York–based firm Parts and Labor Design with Bloomquist Construction Company, Inc., serving as general contractor.

Owned by New York entrepreneur John O. Morisano and offering up a distinctively modern southern cuisine masterminded by executive chef Mashama Bailey, The Grey opened last December. In February, the restaurant was named a semifinalist for the James Beard Award in the best new restaurant category. It has been prominently featured in Architectural Digest and the Washington Post.

The AIA Georgia Honor Awards Program is part of a long-standing tradition of recognizing individuals and organizations for their outstanding achievements in support of the profession of architecture and the AIA. Through these awards, the Association aims to celebrate the accomplishments of its members and increase the public awareness of AIA Georgia and the profession of Architecture.
