Summer is upon us and the temperatures will really begin to warm up. Within our summer activity guide, you will find several pages of cool opportunities to combat the heat. The newly renovated Palm Island Family Aquatics Center offers open swimming, special splash events, swimming lessons, a swim team, aerobics and Zumba classes. If you would like to use the facility for a private party or corporate event - those rental opportunities are available as well.
Enjoy your summer evenings playing in a few outdoor sports leagues such as softball and pickle ball or indoor activities such as basketball and volleyball. The Len Colla Recreation Center and the Dorothy Powell Senior Adult Center both provide daily exercise, arts and educational programming in a very friendly and comfortable setting.
Not to be outdone - both the Main and Vista Public Libraries offer a tremendous assortment of youth, teen and adult programming. The Summer Reading Program kicks off on Saturday, May 30th at the Main Library, please circle that date and stop by and enjoy the festivities. Both libraries will also be hosting free technology classes throughout the summer for those 18 years of age and older. Learning is a very cool thing!
You will also notice several enhancements being made this summer at both Carr McNatt Park and the Dave White Municipal
Golf Course. It is our goal to continue to make improvements to the playing conditions at these facilities. The course will remain open throughout the summer improvements and we offer discounted programs to both adults and youth. Another cool opportunity not to be missed.
That being said - “Let’s Play”

Economic Activities

...Economic Activities 1 Economic Activities Robert Johnson ECO/372 – Principles of Macroeconomics 1/14/2013 Instructor: Joshua Long Economic Activities 2 The purchasing of groceries is a huge part of our economy that affects all three areas business, household and government. First let us take a look at the business end because this is where the cycle starts. The groceries store is where most people go to buy their food and all major stores have just about everything that we as consumers is looking for. We go into the store and purchase the food. The grocery store cycle is that the food is purchased by them from the distributor and the store sells it to us the consumers. Groceries are the biggest contributor to the economy because we have to eat to survive. Most people spend at least twenty – five percent of their budgets on purchasing food for their households. The households are the ones who keep the groceries stores open and the money we spend helps other people to purchase groceries for their families and put a roof over their heads. The government receives a percentage of every dollar made by the grocery store and the distributors. The......

Enzyme Activity

...Manuel Mark Guerrero 3/12/13 Biology 1010c Mrs.Bisogno Title: What is the effect of temperature, pH, and substrate concentration on Enzyme activity? Purpose: Enzymes are proteins that speed up chemical reactions in cells. They break down molecules called substrates. Each enzymes have only one substrate that breaks down. Enzymes are produced in the cells of the body and affect the rate of almost all the chemical reactions which take place in living organisms. The rate of enzymes activity is influenced by temperature, pH, and substrate concentration. The purpose of this lab was to determine the affects of enzyme activity under specific temperature changes, pH values and substrate concentration. Since heat increases the rate of most chemical reactions, the addition of heat causes faster molecular movement. Most enzymes active in living tissue becomes denatured, their secondary or tertiary protein structure breaks down, at the temperature above 40 degrees C. In the effects of pH, it is expected that the changes in pH would have an effect on the action of enzymes. Lemon juice helps keep the apple from growing, because its full of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and it has a low acidic pH level. But extreme high levels of low pH values can result in a complete loss of enzymes activity thus leaving the apple to brown. The effects of substrate concentration, an enzyme substrate complex is formed when a substrate fits into active of an enzyme. The......

Solar Activity

...Solar Activity Most people just look up at the sun and enjoy the warmth and brightness of the light. Without the sun there would be no life on earth. If a person took the time to analyze it, he or she would find more than bright light and warm weather. The sun is very active with solar cycles, sunspots, and most of all solar flares. It is amazing how much the suns activity can affect us on Earth. A solar cycle is when the sun's magnetic field rotates a full 360 degrees, causing its poles to switch. This solar magnetic activity cycle or solar cycle has been active for hundreds of millions of years. A solar cycle can be as short as nine years or as long as fourteen years, with an average of about eleven years (Zell). A solar cycle is observed by counting frequency and placement of sunspots visible on the sun. Solar cycles are periodic changes in the sun’s activity, changes in levels of solar radiation, and changes in levels of ejection of solar matter. The sun is currently in solar cycle twenty-four (Millis). There are phases of solar minimum and solar maximum. During solar minimum, the sun is the least active. Solar maximum is the period of highest activity. The sun is currently in the middle of a very active phase with a high number of sunspot and solar flares. The last time the sun was this active was August 28 through September 2, 1859 (Millis). These solar cycles create sunspots. Sunspots evolve rapidly, are temporary, and are caused by a magnetic disruption on the......

Crashing Activity

...Rassy and the team were concerned with the results of your analysis. They spent the afternoon brainstorming alternative ways for shortening the project duration. They rejected outsourcing activities because most of the work was developmental in nature and could only be done in-house. They considered altering the scope of the project by eliminating some of the proposed product features. After much debate, they felt they could not compromise any of the core features and be successful in the marketplace. They then turned their attention to accelerating the completion of activities through overtime and adding additional technical manpower. Rassy had built into her proposal a discretionary fund of $200,000. She was willing to invest up to half of this fund to accelerate the project, but wanted to hold onto at least $100,000 to deal with unexpected problems. After a lengthy discussion, her team concluded that the following activities could be reduced at the specified cost: • Development of voice recognition system could be reduced from 15 days to 10 days at a cost of $15,000. • Creation of database could be reduced from 40 days to 35 days at a cost of $35,000. • Document design could be reduced from 35 days to 30 days at a cost of $25,000. • External specifications could be reduced from 18 days to 12 days at a cost of $20,000. • Procure prototype components could be reduced from 20 days to 15 days at a cost of $30,000. • Order stock parts could be reduced from 15 days to 10...

Enzyme Activity

...metabolizing activities. Enzymes are able to be inhibited, or prevented from metabolizing, by other molecules or chemicals (Sizer, 1957).These molecules, known as inhibitors, are sometimes similar in shape to the substrate that the enzyme usually binds to (Sizer, 1957). Therefore, the inhibitor can bind to the active site, rather than the substrate, and prevent enzyme-substrate binding (Sizer, 1957). Sometimes, an enzyme can actually be inhibited by its own products. This process is known as feedback inhibition (Burlant 1965). Furthermore, other conditions, such as temperature, can denature the enzymatic protein’s shape so that it will become non-functional (Goldina et al, 2010). With this, each enzyme has a certain optimal temperature at which the enzymatic activity can be preformed the most efficiently. This is the purpose of the following experiment (Goldina et al, 2010). Moreover, different types of enzymes have different optimal temperatures (Goldina et al, 2010). Sometimes, certain types of enzyme can actually function at optimal activity in the usually denaturing extreme heat temperatures (Brock, 2985). One example is the bacterium known as Pyrodictium, which contains enzymes that are optimally functional at 110C temperatures (Brock, 1985). These organisms are known as thermophiles, for their ability to strive in such high temperatures (Brock, 1985). Furthermore, it should be noted that not all enzymes are proteins; it was found that RNA has a type of enzymatic......
