Custom Cowboys Jersey Young panda celebrates first birthday

Young panda celebrates first birthday .

Bei Bei, the giant panda cub at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, DC,
Custom Cowboys Jersey had an unusual one-year birthday celebration on
Men’s Nike Dallas Cowboys Customized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey Saturday.

The first ladies of China and the United States both sent their greetings. China’s Peng Liyuan sent her greeting from China, the home country of pandas a world away.

“The giant panda is China’s national treasure. Bei Bei’s birth is the fruit of collaboration between China and the US and a strong symbol of our friendship,”
Men’s Nike Custom Made Dallas Cowboys Elite Team Color Navy Blue NFL Football Jersey,Peng said in a message read by Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai on Saturday morning at a birthday celebration in the zoo’s panda yard.

US first lady Michelle Obama tweeted in the early morning: “Today we celebrate the National Zoo’s ‘precious treasure’ as he turns one year old. Happy birthday,
Customized Dallas Cowboys Jersey Bei Bei!”

In September, Peng and Obama visited the zoo and named the newborn panda cub Bei Bei, meaning “precious” in Chinese.

Peng expressed her appreciation for the staff at the National Zoo for taking good
Women’s Nike Dallas Cowboys Customized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey care of Bei Bei and for all US friends who love and cherish pandas.

The zoo and the Chinese embassy held a special zhuazhou ceremony, a tradition honoring a baby’s first birthday that dates back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279) about 1,000 year ago. Whatever the baby chooses foretells its future.

Three banners – with drawings and words in Chinese symbolizing long life, health, habitat, good luck and friendship – were placed in Bei Bei’s yard. The art was created by children of Chinese diplomats in Washington. Panda keepers sprinkled the signposts with honey to attract Bei Bei.

Bei Bei appeared to be in good spirits, but he strolled in the yard area far from the banners and climbed a tree for awhile, despite efforts by panda keepers to
Personalized Dallas Cowboys Jersey get him close to the banners. Laurie Thompson, a panda keeper and zoo biologist, said Bei Bei seems to feel most comfortable when his mother is in the yard.

Finally, it was Mei Xiang who performed zhuazhou for Bei Bei. She picked the one signifying “luck and friendship”, then moved on to the next for “health and
Youth Nike Personalized Dallas Cowboys Elite Throwback Navy Blue Thanksgiving Jersey habitat.”

Hundreds of people lined up along the Asia Trail on Saturday morning to have a look at the birthday boy.

Suzy Johnson, wearing a red T-shirt proclaiming, “Happy Birthday, Bei Bei,” said she tweeted about the birthday in the morning. Like many visitors on Saturday, Johnson has been a panda fan for a long time. She said her mother took her to
Personalized NFL Football Jersey see Hsing Hsing and Ling Ling back in the 1970s – the first pair of pandas arriving in the US immediately following the historic trip to China by then-president Richard Nixon in 1972.

Johnson said she was devastated when Mei Xiang lost her baby in 2012. But the next year Bao Bao was born.

“We love the pandas, they are very peaceful,” Johnson said. “It’s all about peace and friendship and love. The world can use a lot more of that.”

B Corp Row: Personalized Dallas Cowboys Jersey The Sesame Street of Business

I work on B Corp Row.

That’s what we affectionately call a five-block stretch of North Ravenswood Avenue in Chicago.

The street was once home to factories and there are still several small industrial companies. But these days, these large gorgeous buildings have been repurposed
Personalized Dallas Cowboys Jersey for small businesses of every stripe.

StoryStudio Chicago is in one of these rehabbed loft buildings (ours fittingly was once a printing company) that connects to almost every other building on the block. In fact, if you walk north on Ravenswood, the blocks are reminiscent of streets of row houses—each one is connected to the next.

When I walk to work and pass by these buildings and these businesses, I can’t help but imagine I’m on a new version of Sesame Street, one filled with businesses using business as a force for good.

B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability,
Personalized NFL Football Jersey and transparency.

We may not be quite as cute as the Muppets, but we do have a lot in common:

1. Sesame Street is a great educator, opening minds and teaching the basics.
B Corps think of themselves first as businesses, but second as educators. We can’t
Men’s Nike Custom Made Dallas Cowboys Elite Team Color Navy Blue NFL Football Jersey help ourselves; at networking events we talk about greening our supply chains, we write blog posts describing our experiments in building great company cultures, and at cocktail parties we talk about the weather….and how it affects wind turbines.

When I introduce StoryStudio as a B Corp I am often met with blank faces. I grab this chance to explain that StoryStudio is part of the solution, that we are using the power of business to solve environmental and social issues. That you should hire us because we are amazing at what we do, but also because we are a part of
Custom Cowboys Jersey something bigger.

2. If you make a mistake on Sesame Street, no one gets mad at you and everyone wants to help.
Mistakes? Oh, where do I begin.

It’s not uncommon for me to burst in on my B Corp neighbors for an impromptu venting session. I know I’ll get great advice, or sometimes, just the reassurance that they have been in similar positions too.

Like many entrepreneurs, I started StoryStudio because I knew a lot about writing and stories, not because I knew how to read a balance sheet. Let’s just say, I had a bit of a learning curve.

Every entrepreneur makes mistakes. It’s what we learn from those mistakes that matters. Using the B Corp framework makes this process faster and provides what I call, “a lens of opportunity.”

3. Sesame Street has some great quirky characters.
Okay, I stuck this one in just because I wanted you to know I really identify with Oscar the Grouch.

4. Bert and Ernie are the best BFFs ever.
Stop me if I get too emotional here but I have to admit that my very favorite part of being a B Corp in Chicago, is my group of BFF’s on B Corp Row. These are the
Customized Dallas Cowboys Jersey people I call when something goes right at work, or when something goes wrong.

Owning a business can sometimes feel lonely, but as a B Corp, I am part of a local,
Women’s Nike Dallas Cowboys Customized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey,national, and international community to learn from, collaborate with, or just hang out together.

5. Sesame Street never shies away from addressing difficult topics.
Our neighborhood has changed a great deal in the decade that StoryStudio Chicago has been located on this street. We have benefited from economic development spurred by this small business growth.

But in other parts of Chicago, this kind of growth isn’t happening.

Each B Corp views their social impact in a different way. For StoryStudio, our focus is on helping our students find and tell their stories, and to reach a deeper understanding of those stories.

But for me personally, being a B has given me the network and the tools to work toward true change in Chicago. Several of us on B Corp Row have been working
Youth Nike Personalized Dallas Cowboys Elite Throwback Navy Blue Thanksgiving Jersey to bring a B Lab-created, citywide program to Chicago encouraging businesses in every corner of the city to measure their impact, grow their businesses, and
Men’s Nike Dallas Cowboys Customized Elite Away White NFL Football Jersey
celebrate their achievements. This growth means more local jobs and opportunity for the communities in which they are located.

6. Sesame Street is more than a place; it’s a state of mind.
Being a B Corp is more than a credential for me. It’s a joyful reminder that I am a part of something much bigger than StoryStudio or even our Ravenswood neighborhood. I am part of new way of conducting business. One focused on growing my own business while helping to build a world in which we all benefit from a shared prosperity.

So, the next time you hear someone talking about The Street, think of B Corp Row and the impact you can have on your own street.

Samsung Techwin unveils vandal and extreme weather-resistant dome camera

Other key features include Digital Image Stabilization (DIS), which negates the effects of vibration, and Defog which can be used to help improve the clarity of images captured in poor weather conditions such as rain, smoke or fog. A built-in SD/SDHC/SDXC memory slot provides the opportunity for authorised users to remotely access and download video that has been recorded onto a memory card.

The SNV-5084 and SNV-6084 will both offer Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) which can assist in the detection of activity by various means, such as tripwire and enter/exit direction, object appear/disappear and ‘tampering’, which creates an alert if paint is sprayed on a camera lens or there is unauthorised movement of a Wireless Security Cameras away from its usual field of view. Alternatively, the motion detection technology built into the WiseNetIII DSP chipset can greatly reduce the false alarm rate by learning what is the normal motion of the scene and ignoring, for example, the fluttering leaves of trees.

The SNV-6084 and SNV-5084 join 13 other CCTV IP Camera models that incorporate the WiseNetIII DSP chipset. These have been developed by Samsung Techwin as a result of a market research programme which identified what users and installers felt were the key ‘must haves’ in order for high definition IP network Infrared Security Cameras to automatically become the preferred choice when a new video surveillance system was being specified, or an existing system was being upgraded.
