  • No, I think my supervisor would approve as many days as I want as long as I also get all of my work done. There’s always just too much work to do, it seems.

    Fort Myers and four other Florida cities made the Top 5 for Fastest Growing Places in new U.S. News & World Report study.

    Fort Myers No. 1 for this in new U.S. News & World Report ranking

    Anyone stuck in traffic in Lee County ― especially during season ― will likely agree with U.S. News & World Report on this: Fort Myers is among the "Fastest Growing Places" in America.

    Fort Myers ranked No. 1, with three other Florida cities making the top 5: Port St. Lucie (No. 3), Daytona Beach (4) and Tallahassee (5).

    What's more remarkable is how hurricanes have not deterred people from moving to Lee County. Hurricane Ian was a Category 4 storm in September 2022 devasted much of the region, causing more than $100 billion in damage.

    And the facts bear this out. A News-Press storyMonday revealed how Lee County is attracting some of highest dollar investments in Florida. Lee ranks No. 8 among Florida counties based on business establishment growth, Gross Domestic Product growth and new building permits.

    Just down the road from Fort Myers, Naples ranked No. 1 on the U.S. News list released Tuesday.

    Sarasota came in at No. 11, followed by Pensacola (No. 31); Fort Myers (37); Melbourne (No. 49); Jacksonville (56); Orlando (68); Tallahassee (75); Ocala (78); Lakeland (80); Port St. Lucie (83); Daytona Beach (96); and Miami (123) rounded out the top 150.

    "Naples, Florida, takes the top spot due to its strong desirability and job market scores, andmoderately high quality-of-life score," U.S. News said in its report.

  • Offseason Champs

    We’re inching closer to the start of the 2024-2025 college football season.

    At this point we’ve had signing day and a bunch of transfers. Who’s your offseason champ?

    I’ll make my very biased case for the Miami Hurricanes.

    Solid recruit class, and great transfer portal pick ups in Cam Ward, Sam Brown, and Damien Martinez, among others. We’ve also lost a few good ones in the portal, though.

    All that said, I’ve dubbed the Canes “Offseason Champs” several times before, and it has not quite translated to anything on the field.

    Led by Jalen Brunson’s 44 points, the Knicks took a commanding 121-91 win over the Pacers in Game 5 to take a 3-2 lead in their second-round playoff series.

    Knicks rout Pacers behind Jalen Brunson’s Game 5 gem

    The Pacers’ beat down of the Knicks in Game 4 had me feeling a little pessimistic. But they bounced back and did the same to the Pacers in Game 5!

    Just a suggestion on links

    I’ve noticed that links often contain duplicative text if you don’t have the compact link setting selected. The post title is usually the link headline, and then part of the link body is usually displayed right under the title. Then, on the link, the same exact headline and body are shown again on the link preview. See image for example. Not a huge deal, but could save some space to eliminate the duplicative text in the link preview.

    A university professor broke a record for the longest time living underwater without depressurization this weekend at a Florida Keys lodge for scuba divers.

    A Florida man living underwater won’t resurface even after breaking the record

    cross-posted from: https://hilariouschaos.com/post/139048

    > A Florida man living underwater won’t resurface even after breaking the record > > KEY LARGO, Fla. (AP) — A university professor broke a record for the longest time living underwater without depressurization this weekend at a Florida Keys lodge for scuba divers. > > Joseph Dituri’s 74th day residing in Jules’ Undersea Lodge, situated at the bottom of a 30-foot-deep lagoon in Key Largo, wasn’t much different than his previous days there since he submerged March 1. > > Dituri, who also goes by the moniker “Dr. Deep Sea,” ate a protein-heavy meal of eggs and salmon prepared using a microwave, exercised with resistance bands, did his daily pushups and took an hour-long nap. Unlike a submarine, the lodge does not use technology to adjust for the increased underwater pressure. > > The previous record of 73 days, two hours and 34 minutes was set by two Tennessee professors — Bruce Cantrell and Jessica Fain — at the same location in 2014. > > But Dituri isn’t just settling for the record and resurfacing: He plans to stay at the lodge until June 9, when he reaches 100 days and completes an underwater mission dubbed Project Neptune 100. > > The mission combines medical and ocean research along with educational outreach and was organized by the Marine Resources Development Foundation, owner of the habitat. > > “The record is a small bump and I really appreciate it,” said Dituri, a University of South Florida educator who holds a doctorate in biomedical engineering and is a retired U.S. Naval officer. “I’m honored to have it, but we still have more science to do.” > > His research includes daily experiments in physiology to monitor how the human body responds to long-term exposure to extreme pressure. > > “The idea here is to populate the world’s oceans, to take care of them by living in them and really treating them well,” Dituri said. > > The outreach portion of Dituri’s mission includes conducting online classes and broadcast interviews from his digital studio beneath the sea. During the past 74 days, he has reached over 2,500 students through online classes in marine science and more with his regular biomedical engineering courses at the University of South Florida. > > While he says he loves living under the ocean, there is one thing he really misses. > > “The thing that I miss the most about being on the surface is literally the sun,” Dituri said. “The sun has been a major factor in my life – I usually go to the gym at five and then I come back out and watch the sunrise.”

    That was a tough loss. I have a bad feeling about the rest of the series. Hope the Knicks can bounce back and close this out in Philly.
