Today, they are on the endangered species list and the reefs of the Florida Keys are among the most threatened in the world.Reefs are often referred to as the rainforests of the sea. They attract more marine life than anywhere else in the ocean because of the natural shelter they provide. They also provide protection from storms for our coastal areas.That passion led to Nedimyer starting the Coral Restoration Foundation, which has grown more than 25,000 staghorn and elkhorn corals in underwater nurseries. He and his staff of volunteers work three days a week maintaining the nurseries just off Key Largo, which cover more than an acre of the ocean floor.

Norwich University,Vermont Business Magazine Norwich University welcomes Colonel Mark Anarumo, PhD, USAF, (Ret) on his first day as 24th president of the nation’s oldest private military college. President Anarumo comes to Norwich most recently as the Director and Permanent Professor for the Center for Character and Leadership Development, US Air Force Academy, Colorado, a presidentially-appointed position.Anarumo assumes the role as university president during a historic time not just for Norwich, which celebrated its bicentennial in 2019, but also for the world during this global pandemic and associated economic recession, which is poised to change not just the field of higher education, but of society at large.Comparing it to challenges he has faced in the past, Anarumo says he is prepared and invigorated to accept the challenge of leading during such uncertain times: “The past six months have been extremely difficult for our nation. Some citizens have been especially hard hit; we have a difficult road before us. As challenging as things have been, I am sincerely optimistic that we will recover very well, and our country will end in a better place than when this pandemic started. “I am confident we can say the same about the Norwich community. Due to the remarkable accomplishments of President Schneider and his leadership team, the world-class faculty of Norwich University, and our staff and coaches, our alumni and our students, Norwich will lead in the nation’s and the state’s recovery and be postured for growth. Because of the school’s resiliency, I will be able to focus on agility and flexibility to continue our success. Every crisis includes opportunity. It will be my job to ensure we are ready to seize opportunities as they are presented.” Anarumo’s top three priorities for this year are to lead the Norwich community through the necessary changes inherent with the COVID-19 pandemic which ensures the health and safety of the campus community; to address academic, operational and financial priorities of Norwich in its third century of service to the nation; and to learn the Norwich culture in order to preserve the 200-year-old tradition of educating citizen soldiers to both build and defend the republic.Anarumo began his military career in the U.S. Army, then served 26 years in the U.S. Air Force, where he recently retired as a Colonel. His previous assignment was Vice Commander of the 39th Air Base Wing at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey, where he was responsible for approximately 5,000 U.S. military, civilian and contractor personnel and the combat readiness of U.S. Air Force units at Incirlik and four geographically separated units in Turkey.He entered the Air Force in 1994 as the Distinguished Graduate of Air Force Reserve Officers’ Training Corps at Rutgers University.

1 Louis Van Gaal can close the gap on rivals Manchester City in his first Manchester derby on Sunday – LIVE and EXCLUSIVE on talkSPORT, from 1pm.United sit four points behind their city rivals, in 8th place, but head into the clash off the back of Robin Van Persie’s dramatic injury time equaliser against league leaders Chelsea last weekend.City on the other hand lost 2-1 at West Ham before being dumped out of the Capital One Cup at home to Newcastle United in midweek, and to compound their misery it has been confirmed that David Silva will be sidelined for up to three weeks with a knee injury sustained against the Magpies.Red Devils’ captain Wayne Rooney is available once again following his three-match ban for kicking West Ham midfielder Stewart Downing, and with players returning from injury just what will Van Gaal’s starting XI be? talkSPORT takes a look…Rooney to replace Mata?As captain, Rooney will likely walk straight back into the starting XI, a move that suggests Spain international Juan Mata will drop to the bench.Mata has started all three games in Rooney’s absence, but the Spaniard has failed to prove himself under Van Gaal and he was subbed midway through the second-half against his former employers last weekend, despite United searching for an equaliser.There’s no denying Mata’s ability, but he’s yet to shine at Old Trafford since his £37m move in January, with all of his goals for United coming against bottom-half opposition.Rooney is a still devise figure among the club’s fans, but his all-round performance of tracking back and ‘defending from the front’ is admired and will likely see him start against City.The Englishman’s last two games saw him play Leicester City and West Ham, and his goals and assists helped United to five goals, reinforcing his influence at both ends of the pitch.Carrick fit enough for starting XI?United great Bryan Robson spoke this week about Michael’s Carrick absence from the first team, insisting the England international’s steadying influence has been badly missed.Carrick has been absent from the first three months of the season with an ankle injury that required surgery, but he returned to action in a Under-21 game last week and was on the bench against Chelsea on Sunday.Given the tenacity of a derby, it is perhaps too soon to risk the Englishman, so Spain star Ander Herrera will likely partner the rejuvenated Marouane Fellani, if he can prove his fitness after a rib injury.Van Persie to continue as lone strikerRarely has an equaliser been celebrated with as much euphoria as Van Persie’s injury time strike against Chelsea, and the Dutchman’s reaction was a sign of relief following the criticism of his performances in recent weeks.Radamel Falcao has emerged as a popular figure at Old Trafford in his short time at the club, but his absence last week through injury resulted in Van Persie leading the line and the Dutchman will likely continue in that role.Van Persie has not hit the heights of his first year at the club, but fans will hope that last week’s goal against the Blues will lead to good run of form from the former Arsenal man.Despite the criticism levelled at him, Van Persie has still found himself in dangerous positions and given his big-game experience and relationship with Van Gaal, he has the trust of the manager and should start against City.Is this how Manchester United will line-up against Manchester City? 1 Louis Van Gaal takes his side to Manchester City on Sunday in his first Manchester derby since taking the helm at Old Trafford. Man United fans, how do you think you’ll line-up against Man City? Comment below…Man City v Man United is LIVE and EXCLUSIVE on talkSPORT, Sunday from 1pm. Click here to tune in.
