Hurricane recovery round table gives residents access to more help postFlorence

first_imgPENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — It’s been almost eight months since Hurricane Florence, but recovery is far from over.Congressman David Rouzer held a recovery round table Monday night to show residents that there is still help, and lots of residents still need help getting back on their feet.- Advertisement – Rouzer wants people to have the chance to learn how exactly they can get help.“Just to know that you need a roof,” Pender County resident Tracy Bennerman said. “It was hard for me to find anybody to do the repairs because they were busy helping people that just didn’t have anything.”Bennerman still considers herself one of the lucky ones after Florence, but she, like many others still needs help.Related Article: Gov. Cooper tours Fair Bluff Fire Station, talks hurricane recovery“Those of us in elected office have not forgotten about the need that is a direct result of Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Matthew too, for that matter,” Rouzer said. “For those that have been affected by both.”Officials from recovery groups across the state came out to talk about the area’s progress. Most importantly, organizations were there to talk one on one with victims.“We are looking at about $20 million of recovery,” said Jennifer Witkowski, who works with the Pender County Long Term Recovery Group. “We are looking at over 3,000 homes that fall under what’s called unmet needs. That means that the people were either having no insurance or not enough insurance to get back to a livable situation.”Witkowski says these numbers are just sad.Rouzer hopes this event, along with proposed legislation, will keep pushing recovery.“In the house this coming week we’re going to have a vote on a disaster recovery bill, which is going to be additional money,” Rouzer said.Bennerman, like so many others are still picking up the pieces, but she’s here to help everyone else.“It means a whole lot to me because I don’t like to see people needy,” Bennerman said. “I’m going to support Pender County.”Pender County Long Term Recovery Group is designed to help people figure out what help they specifically qualify for.last_img read more

PC Tech cofounder publishes app to Ovi store wins Nokia N8

first_imgAdvertisement Developers and bloggers in Uganda were introduced to Ovi earlier this year, but there was no activity months after the formal launch which took place at Serena Hotel. Nokia organized another meeting with the community to announce some changes in the process of publishing to Ovi which had made it much simpler, and to find out what had hindered developers and bloggers from submitting applications.Ms Dorothy Ooko, Nokia’s Communications Manager for East and Southern Africa then offered a mobile phone to the developer who submitted the 1st application.Joshua Twinamasiko who is the Managing Editor and co-founder of PC Tech Magazine says the process of publishing an application to Ovi Store has become a lot easier than it was at the start. One option is the Ovi App Wizard which doesn’t even require any programming skills. – Advertisement – “All you need is a website or blog with an RSS feed, and in a few steps you will have your application up and running,” Joshua said.About Ovi Ovi by Nokia is the brand for Nokia’s Internet services. The Ovi services can be used from a mobile device, computer (through Nokia Ovi Suite) or via the web. Nokia focuses on five key service areas: Games, Maps, Media, Messaging and Music. Nokia’s aim with Ovi is to include third party developers, such as operators and third-party services like Yahoo’s Flickr photo site. With the announcement of Ovi Maps Player API, Nokia has started to evolve their services into a platform, enabling third-parties to make use of Nokia’s Ovi services. It has some significance in that Nokia is moving deeper into the world of Internet services, where head-on competition with Microsoft, Google and Apple is inevitable.
