Yes, Amna, with storms like this, these types of catastrophic impacts, we always see power outages. And, in some parts, it does take days, because not — it's not always the generation side, but it's getting that transmission in that distribution side back connected to homes, so we can restore power.
We have staged a lot of resources, generators to come in and support primarily critical facilities, especially hospitals. We know that Florida has a really robust capability. And many of the hospitals, if not all of them, have a strong generator capability. But we want to make sure that we have redundant capacity to support any of those types of critical infrastructure needs as they may arise.
But we have also brought in the Army Corps of Engineers, and they have got personnel ready to go to do emergency power assessments, so we can prioritize where we need to restore power, as well as where we might need to use these types of generators to keep these critical facilities running.
A PROFESSIONAL bra fitter has revealed the reason you may be able to see your bra outline through your shirt.
Kimmay, who is from the US, took to TikTok and shared an informative video which she captioned: "Some reasons you’re seeing your bra outline through your shirt! This problem is SO common, but here are some solutions that can help."
In the clip, the bra guru begins: "Usually seeing the outline of your bra means it doesn't fit properly.
"Either it's gapping because the cup is a little bit too big or more likely, the band is too loose so it's riding up and then causing your cups to fall forward and for that shape to be seen.
It can also be too small, so if it's too tight and you're spilling out, you're going to see that bubble as well."
Kimmay goes on to say that another reason could be that it's just worn out.

"If you have a moulded contour cup like this ans you've been folding one cup into another, then this one will actually start to roll a little bit," she says.
"It could also be losing its elasticity in the band…
"It might not also be the right style for your bust so if you have really soft tissue or tend to spill out no matter what, don't opt for something that's too much of a plunge."
She adds: "Instead get something that's full coverage like this, or have some coverage and some stretch or flexibility to it.
"If you're looking for a super smooth look underneath something, maybe opt for a smooth cup and don't go for lace or a seamed cup."
The post has since garnered a whopping 51,000 views and been flooded with comments from grateful women up and down the country.
"Great info!" enthused one.
A second commented: "Awesome post! Thank you!"
A third penned: "Mine is always showing under, like the wire under the cup and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong!"
Meanwhile, another added: "Oh my gosh the band thing makes so much sense!"
A hefty list of upcoming RPGs just came out of CD Projekt Red's PR line, promising fresh new experiences for both longtime and new fans of the Polish game studio.
The news comes directly from the company's Twitter account, where the developers revealed images of a roadmap that they have planned for 2023 and the six years directly after. Naturally, this includes CD Projekt Red's two major game series, including titles made by third-party developers, as well as a brand-new IP.
The first game set in the "Witcher" game is a project called "Sirius, which is being worked on by The Molasses Flood, a Boston-based studio owned by CD Projekt Red. Nothing much has been detailed about this except for how it is supposed to be an innovative take on the existing universe.
Next is "Project Polaris," which is set to be the follow-up to CDPR's "The Witcher" trilogy. Again, not much is known about this, but over 160 of CDPR's dev team is currently working on it. The developers plan to release the entire trilogy within six years of the release of "Polaris."
The last project for "The Witcher" series is "Canis Majoris," a single-player RPG that's being made by a third-party team composed of ex-"Witcher" veterans.
Following these are two announcements for "Cyberpunk 2077," which includes the recently revealed "Phantom Liberty" expansion and a full-fledged sequel that's meant to "prove the full power and potential of the 'Cyberpunk' universe."
The game recently recovered from its catastrophic launch with the 1.6 update, which features content from the critically-acclaimed "Edgerunners" animated series set in the same universe.
"Phantom Liberty" directly continues V's story from one of the base game's many endings, and it will set players on a spy-thriller style adventure with or against the New U.S.A.
Lastly, CDPR announced a new IP in the form of "Project Hadar." This game is still in the conceptual phase helmed by a small crew, though it has reportedly been in incubation since 2021.
"Project Hadar" will be completely independent of both "The Witcher" and "Cyberpunk 2077," so players can expect an entirely new game supported by the full force of CD Projekt Red's development team.
DAVISON, MI – A former Davison Community Schools administrator with 25 years of education experience will fill the vacancy on the Board of Education.
Holly Halabicky, who most recently served the district as Executive Director of Student Services, was appointed to the open position on the Davison Community Schools Board of Education last week by the Genesee Intermediate School District (GISD).
Halabicky was one of 13 candidates that applied for the position, which was vacated after former Trustee Nicholas Goyette was ousted for living outside the district.
The Davison Board of Education voted in August to ask the GISD to help fill the vacant position.
Under normal circumstances, the board would conduct interviews and appoint a new member.
Since Goyette moved out of the district in October 2021 and the board just now learned of it, the 30-day period under Michigan law that lets the board appoint a replacement had passed.
Karen Conover, longtime Davison Board of Education president, said she was pleased that Halabicky was selected to serve the community.
“Mrs. Halabicky is well known to our board since she impressively served in her career’s most latest years as Davison schools’ Executive Director of Student Services,” Conover said in a statement. “But Mrs. Halabicky’s resumé additionally encompasses a wide variety of past and current educational services to our community. We thank the GISD for their hard work and diligence in this process and we look forward to welcoming and working with our existing trustee.”
Halabicky’s first job in education was as a teacher at Davison Alternative Education High School in 1990.
She then moved on to teach at Davison Middle School before moving into administration positions in 2003 and 2006. She became Executive Director of Student Services in 2014 and held that position until retirement in 2021.
A lifelong member of the Davison community, Halabicky owns and operates the Academy de la Danse studio in the downtown area.
“I am passionate in my belief that a strong, high-quality education is what sets individuals on the path for success as an adult,” she said in a statement. “I am committed to serving the district in this new capacity to ensure that Davison students and families have the resources they need to become productive, contributing members in our community and society.”
Superintendent Kevin Brown, who formerly worked with Halabicky in administration, was also in favor of Halabicky’s appointment.
“Mrs. Halabicky has always put kids first and truly exemplifies the District’s mission,” Brown said in a statement. “Her knowledge and understanding of education and the Davison Community Schools as well as her extensive experience working with the board as the district’s former Executive Director of Student Services will allow her to hit the ground running.”

(CNSNews.com) - President Biden has yet to speak directly to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis despite an impending hurricane that’s set to make landfall on Wednesday, but that won’t impact the way the Biden administration responds to the natural disaster, FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell said Tuesday.
“You’ve spoken to the governor of the state. Why hasn’t the president yet or is there a scheduled call for the two men to speak obviously as the pre-eminent leaders of the country and that state?” NBC White House Correspondent Peter Alexander asked.
“As far as the conversation, the president directed me to contact the governor early on before we even did the declaration. I did that. My regional administrator is with the governor right now making sure that we’re understanding what the needs are, and our focus is on the current life safety needs that need to be met,” Criswell said.
“In the past President Biden has made calls to governors in situations of natural disasters - Kay Ivey in Alabama, Asa Hutchinson in Arkansas, or the governor in Texas. Is there any – to articulate I guess can you articulate how those determinations are made, and why it hasn’t been made in this case to have the president call the governor?” a reporter asked.
“The president is very focused on making sure that the federal family has the right resources available to support this. That is why I contacted the governor right away and we have a team of my senior leadership that are embedded with the governor to make sure that we’re supporting that,” Criswell said.
“Our focus today is making sure that we have the right measures in place to support the lifesaving activities that need to happen. Any conversations afterwards will need to be— we need to know what the damages are,” she said.
“But he’s made conversations with mayors. So is there a reason why not the governor?” the reporter asked.
“Again we have a team in place supporting the governor right now, working side-by-side with his staff,” Criswell said.
“Normally presidents call governors or the governors call presidents, but the only thing that really – during hurricanes – the only real question I really want answered is, is it in any way the fact that they haven’t talked? Is there any way that it’s impeded efforts by the government or FEMA to implement plans in Florida, and if so, what would they be?” a reporter asked.
“No, we are very focused on what the needs of Florida is right now. We do not bring politics into our ability to respond to these disasters. We are going to support whatever Governor DeSantis asks of us. We signed his emergency declaration within hours of him sending it in. We’ll continue to do that as we see what the impacts of the storm are,” Criswell said.
“So .. the communication between the president and the governor has no impact on how you all operate?” the reporter asked.
“Zero,” the FEMA administrator said.

Robert Telles was formally charged with the murder of journalist Jeff German, according to court records, but his status as the Clark County Public Administrator and taxpayer-funded salary will remain for now.
Clark County officials tell News 3 Telles remains the officeholder since it's an elected position, but the “County is reviewing its options under the law regarding Robert Telles’ current status as the Public Administrator.”
A Financial Disclosure Statement filed by Telles in 2018 after he won the election showed his annual compensation as $130,000.
However, a Clark County spokesperson said, per NRS (Nevada Revised Statute), the annual salary for the Public Administrator is set at $119,934.
The County wouldn’t directly answer whether this salary was still being paid out but simply noted, “At this time, he is still the elected PA.”
With a new Public Administrator set to be elected on the November ballot, Telles technically remains in the role until a new official takes office in January.
Telles was arrested on September 7, 116 days until the new year. Without taking taxes into account, that amounts to $37,130.25 remaining to be paid out in 2022.

A criminal complaint was filed against Telles on Monday with an amended charge to “open murder with a deadly weapon where the victim is an older person.” The charge is leveled when the victim is 60 years of age or older. German was 69.
Telles was the subject of multiple investigative reports by German published by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. German revealed Telles oversaw a hostile work environment and had an inappropriate relationship with a staffer.
Telles lost his primary re-election bid in June this year.
German was found dead outside his home with multiple stab wounds on Sept. 3. His body was discovered a day after his attack, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
Though an elected Democrat, the Public Administrator isn’t a partisan role and is widely unknown to the general public.
According to the Clark County government website, “Public Administrator serves two important functions for residents of Clark County. The Public Administrator secures property of people who pass away in Clark County while a search for family or the decedent's executor is performed. The Public Administrator also administers estates in court when families cannot.”
