Baldwin County, Georgia

Baldwin County is a county located in the central portion of the U. S. state of Georgia. As of the 2010 census, the population was 46,337; the county seat is Milledgeville, developed along the Oconee River. Baldwin County is part of GA Micropolitan Statistical Area. For centuries the land was occupied by the Creek Nation, for thousands of years before them, varying cultures of indigenous peoples. Part of the land ceded by the Creek Nation in the Treaty of Fort Wilkinson in 1802 was used to create Baldwin County on May 11, 1803, by the Georgia General Assembly, the state's legislative body; the land west of the Oconee River was organized as Wilkinson counties. The Treaty of Washington with the Creek in 1805 extended the state's western boundary to the Ocmulgee River. A legislative act on June 26, 1806, added some of this additional land to both counties; the state legislature subsequently passed an act on December 10, 1807 that created four new counties from Baldwin County's 1806 borders. It expanded Baldwin to the east with land from Washington counties.

The new counties were Morgan, Jones and present-day Jasper. The county is named for Abraham Baldwin, a signer of the United States Constitution, U. S. congressman representing Georgia, the founder of the University of Georgia. White settlers moved into the area and developed large cotton plantations, made possible by the labor of slaves. Since the invention of the cotton gin, short-staple cotton could be profitably processed, it was well-suited to the uplands of Georgia. What became known as the Black Belt of Georgia, an arc of fertile soil, was one of the destinations for slaves being sold from the Upper South, as well as from the Low Country; the county seat of Milledgeville is the former state capital of Georgia. Other than Washington, DC, it is the only planned capital city in the United States; because of its central location within the state and its abundant supply of water from the Oconee River, Milledgeville grew into a bustling frontier town. On November 2, 1807, the state legislature held its first session in the newly completed statehouse in Milledgeville.

Georgia's first state penitentiary was built within the historic city limits of Milledgeville in 1817. This site is now used as the main campus of State University. In 1837 the General Assembly provided for the establishment of the state's first mental asylum, today known as Central State Hospital; when the state of Georgia seceded from the Union in January 1861 during a legislative session held in Milledgeville, Baldwin County became a target for Union forces. When Union general William T. Sherman's made his devastating March to the Sea through Georgia, his troops occupied the capital city in November 1864. Sherman and his Union armies burned the state penitentiary, vandalized the city, held a mock session of the legislature in the statehouse to repeal the state's ordinance of secession. In 1868, after the Civil War, Georgia's capital was moved from Milledgeville to its present location in Atlanta. Today Milledgeville is home to two institutions of higher education: Georgia College and State University and Georgia Military College.

Founded in 1889 as the Georgia Normal and Industrial College for Women, Georgia College and State University has since grown to become the state's premier public liberal arts university. Georgia Military College, founded in 1879, now occupies the Old Capitol Building. In addition to the Old Capitol and Governor's Mansion, visitors to Baldwin County can explore Andalusia, the family farm of writer Flannery O'Connor. Carl Vinson, who served for fifty years in the U. S. Congress, was born in Baldwin County. Oliver Hardy and film director, began his career in the Milledgeville Opera House. Flannery O'Connor and short-story writer, lived in Milledgeville, she is buried in her family plot in the city's historic Memory Hill Cemetery. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 267 square miles, of which 258 square miles is land and 9.6 square miles is water. The county is located along the fall line of the Eastern United States; the city of Milledgeville, located along the Oconee River, is an important city in the region.

Because of its location, the northern part of the county tends to be more hillier due to its location in the Piedmont than the southern part of the county, in the far northern part of the Atlantic coastal plain. The majority of Baldwin County, south of Lake Sinclair, is located in the Lower Oconee River sub-basin of the Altamaha River basin; the northern portion of the county is located in the Upper Oconee River sub-basin of the same Altamaha River basin. Putnam County, Georgia - north Hancock County, Georgia - northeast Washington County, Georgia - east Wilkinson County, Georgia - south Jones County, Georgia - west As of the census of 2010, there were 46,337 people, 14,758 households, 9,843 families living in the county; the population density was 173 people per square mile. There were 17,173 housing units at an average density of 66 per square mile; the racial makeup of the county was 54.17% White, 43.38% Black or African American, 0.21% Native American, 1.01% Asian, 0.01% Pacific Islander, 0.48% from other races, 0.74% from two or more races.

1.36 % of the population were Latino of any race. There were 14,758 households out of which 31.00% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 43.90% were married couples living together, 18.20% had a

Sustainable consumer behaviour

Sustainable consumer behavior is the sub discipline of consumer behavior that studies why and how consumers do or do not incorporate sustainability issues into their consumption behavior. Further, it studies the products that consumers select, how those products are used and how they are disposed of in pursuit of their individual sustainability goals. From a conventional marketing perspective, consumer behavior has focused on the purchase stage of the total consumption process; this is because it is the actual point at which a contract is made between the buyer and seller, money is paid and the ownership of products transfers to the consumer. Yet from a social and environmental perspective, consumer behavior needs to be understood as a whole since a product affects all stages of a consumption process; the buyer decision process or consumer decision process is described in five stages. The basic, three stage model of consumption describes obtaining and disposing of products and services; the study of consumer decision making, expands these into five stages first described by John Dewey in 1910 Problem recognition Information search Evaluation of alternatives Purchase decision Post purchase behavior Need and want recognition occur when a consumer senses a difference between what he or she perceives to be the idea versus the actual state of affairs.

There are three key sources for searching information, in other words personal and public sources. The mass media, a public source provide information about the environmental costs and benefits of consumption. Consumers become aware of them through these sources. In this stage, environmental concerns which are expressed as environmental costs and benefits, will contribute to the evaluation of options in deciding what to buy. One way to evaluate more sustainable consumption is to consider the total customer cost which incurs in acquisition and post-use phases. Consumers have to trade off the environmental benefits against other attributes such as higher price, better performance and better design. In addition they may need to change the manner of behavior that they do. In this stage, repair, use frequency and type of use are of interest; some key products such as homes and domestic appliances, much of the sustainability impact accrue after the purchase phase during use or post-use. Again, this is.

Post purchase behavior may include disposal where consumers can keep and dispose of a product. Some materials such as paper, metal can be recycled or reused in production process; this phase has become important due to the overloaded landfill. Buying and consuming an individual product, like a cup of coffee on the way to work or class, might seem such a trivial action that, although it refreshes us, it leaves no lasting impression or memory. However, that action will combine with those of other consumers to contribute to the economic success of the coffee retailer, the overall growth in the economy and the volume of waste with which local government must deal, it will influence the demand for, the price of, coffee beans and milk, in doing so will influence the lives and prosperity of thousands of farmers throughout the world, shape their investment and planting decisions for next year. It will have knock-on impacts in terms of the demand for pesticides, packaging materials and energy; the economic impact of that coffee will contribute to the future share price of the retailers and the levels of income and investment they will enjoy.

At a national level, it will contribute to national prosperity and in doing so will influence the future policies on taxation and interest rates. We tend to think of consumption as an economic phenomenon that addresses our individual wants and drives the economy through our collective behavior, but it is social and cultural process through which we all express our identity and establish our place within society, it is a physical process that consumes resources. What we eat, how we heat our homes and how we travel to work or for pleasure may seem like nobody's businesses except our own. However, the collective consequences of those consumption decisions, the ways in which our needs are met, are a principal driver behind climate change that will have consequences for people and species across the globe. Consumers’ purchasing behavior will determine the success or failure of new products and services that are marketed on the basis of their sustainability performance; because of the role consumers in determining sustainability impacts during the use and disposal phases of the consumption process, their overall behavior will strongly influence the sustainability performance of all goods and services.

There exist some inconsistencies in consumers’ behaviors. Despite the significant increase in consumers’ environmental awareness, many of them have not taken their concerns into consideration in their actual consumption choices and behaviors; this can be due to consumers’ selfishness, they don’t want to give up or change the way they live, or the associated costs and taxes. There is a discrepancy between what behavior consumers think is and environmentally sustainable and what behavior is. For instance, many people in the U. S. limit their use of spray cans as they want to minimize their contribution to the impact on the ozone layer. Their behavior is not environmentally significant because the substances that affect the ozone layer have been banned in the U. S. long ago. This can be due to consumers’ lack of knowledge about general environmental impacts of consumpt

Wellington Urban Motorway

The Wellington Urban Motorway, part of SH 1, is the major road into and out of Wellington, New Zealand. It is 7 km long, ranges from three to seven lanes wide, extends from the base of the Ngauranga Gorge into the Wellington CBD. From the Ngauranga Interchange, the motorway travels south across a narrow piece of land alongside the Wairarapa and North Island Main Trunk railway lines. After passing through the suburb of Kaiwharawhara, the motorway travels across the 1335m long Thorndon overbridges, the longest bridges in the North Island, before entering the suburb of Thorndon. Shortly after it enters the Terrace Tunnel before terminating at Vivian Street in Wellington City. Following the Second World War the National Roads Board an arm of the Ministry of Works, began the search for better road access to Wellington. In the late 1950s they proposed Wellington's airport; the first proposal was released in 1961. Their proposal was rejected by the public for its damage to the Basin Reserve and U. S. consultants, De Leuw Cather, were called in.

The alignment and scale of the motorway between Ngauranga and the Bowen Street overbridge as built closely matches the original proposal, with the one exception that the proposed interchange at Ngaio Gorge was never completed, although the stumps of a southbound on-ramp and northbound on and off ramps remain visible today broadly parallel to Kaiwharawhara railway station. Beyond the Tinakori Road on-ramp and Hawkestone Street off-ramp going south, the motorway is a scaled down concept from what was proposed; the first phase of the motorway was opened in 1969 as part of State Highway 2 between Ngauranga and Aotea Quay, relieving the chronic congestion at the traffic signal controlled intersections at the bottom of Ngauranga Gorge and Ngaio Gorge where long delays and peak time queues of several kilometres occurred during the morning and evening peaks. The motorway was extended in phases as far as the Hawkestone Street off-ramp and the Tinakori Road on-ramp by 1974; the last major extension was completed in 1978, with the construction of the Terrace Tunnel and the termination of the motorway at the Ghuznee and Vivian Street intersections with Willis Street.

The original concept was for 6 lanes to proceed to Willis Street, with the existing three-lane Terrace Tunnel being the northbound route with a duplicate southbound tunnel. The current alignment of the motorway up to the Terrace offramp shows how 6 lanes were curtailed to three, by using the Terrace interchange to lose a lane each way, a third lane merging southbound towards the remaining tunnel. About half of the southbound carriageway has been built but is unpaved, including the Bowen Street onramp, now a walkway; the Shell Gully/Clifton Tce carpark under the motorway, accessible from the Terrace shows the pillars, part of the carriageway that would have carried the additional three southbound lanes to the 2nd Terrace Tunnel. The northbound carriageway is complete with one exception, the Bowen Street offramp which would have been a counterclockwise loop splitting off from the Tinakori Road offramp. A section of the Tinakori Road offramp has a different type of barrier to the rest of the offramp, this shows where it would have been.

Funding for the second tunnel was indefinitely shelved in the 1970s due to fiscal pressures on government, the beginning of far greater scrutiny of the quality of highway expenditure. It was clear that until the Wellington Urban Motorway was connected to State Highway 1 at Ngauranga Gorge, that a single Terrace Tunnel would be adequate for the traffic demands of the 1970s. With lack of future thinking, the tunnel is now a congestion blackspot in morning rush hour; the Ngauranga Interchange connecting State Highway 1 opened in 1984, removing the State Highway designation from the Hutt Road south of Ngauranga, making the Wellington Urban Motorway between Ngauranga and Aotea Quay both State Highway 1 and 2. While the Ngauranga Interchange relieved the severe congestion experienced at the traffic light controlled intersection at Ngauranga, it did double the usage of the rest of the motorway, generating peak time congestion at the end of the motorway, in the morning peaks with merging traffic from the Hutt.

Meanwhile, the original plans to extend the motorway beyond Willis Street had been reviewed, with a new plan for an "arterial extension" at a 70 km/h standard proposed along the motorway alignment towards the existing Mount Victoria Tunnel. That plan was shelved in 1993 because of funding constraints at the time. Transit New Zealand prioritised a three-stage approach to addressing the traffic issues between the Terrace Tunnel and the Mt Victoria Tunnel: Stage 1. Conversion of Buckle St to one-way westbound, Vivian St from Taranaki Street to Cambridge Terrace to one-way eastbound operation; this was seen as a short-term measure to prepare for Stage 2. Stage 2. Widening of Arthur Street and extension towards Victoria and Willis St to a new on-ramp underneath Vivian St. Closure of the Vivian St onramp and construction of a new off-ramp at Vivian St. Vivian St would be converted to one-way eastbound operation between Willis St and Taranaki St; the Ghuznee St offramp would be closed and Ghuznee St reverted to two-way operation.

Stage 2 was seen as a medium-term measure, providing sufficient relief for ten years before consideration of Stage 3. Stage 3. Construction of an entirely cut-and-cover grade separated arterial tunnel highway from the Terrace Tunnel to Mt Vi

Klepon

Klepon, or kelepon, is a traditional Southeast Asian green-coloured balls of rice cake filled with liquid palm sugar and coated in grated coconut, originating from Indonesia. The sweet glutinous rice balls is one of popular Indonesian kue, it is found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, it is a boiled rice cake, covered in coconut bits. The dough is made from glutinous rice flour, sometimes mixed with tapioca, it is green because the glutinous rice dough is flavoured and coloured with a paste made from the leaf of pandan or dracaena plant — whose leaves are used in Southeast Asian cooking. The small pieces of palm sugar are hard when inserted into glutinous rice dough and rolled into balls; the balls are boiled, subsequently the palm sugar melts due to high temperature, creating a sweet liquid inside the balls' core. The balls are rolled in grated coconut, thus the coconut bits stick to the sticky balls' surface. One must be careful. Besides the possibility that the bite could squirt and eject liquid palm sugar, a freshly boiled one – which contains hot liquid palm sugar, should be consumed or best to be left to cool down for some moment.

Klepon are traditionally served in a banana leaf container, in traditional marketplaces they are sold in banana leaf package containing four or ten balls. Today however, they might be packed in plastic wrappings. Klepon is Javanese name for this sweet glutinous rice balls. In other parts of Indonesia, such as in Sulawesi, Sumatra and in neighbouring Malaysia, it is known as onde-onde or in some regions,'buah melaka'. In Java however, onde-onde refers to the Chinese Jin deui, a rice cake ball coated with sesame seeds and filled with sweet green bean paste. Although popular across Southeast Asia, klepon may have originated in Java; the dish is called as klepon in the Netherlands. In the 1950s, klepon was introduced by Indo immigrants to the Netherlands and is available in toko shops, Dutch or Chinese Indonesian restaurants and supermarkets throughout the country. In Java, along with getuk and cenil, are eaten as morning or afternoon snacks, they are categorised as kue basah, are part of traditional Javanese jajan pasar.

Traditional klepon is quite homogenous in Indonesia and neighbouring Singapore. New recipes has been developed in the country. Several new variants has been created – for example by replacing the rice flour with yam or sweet potato dough, or replacing the liquid palm sugar filling with chocolate, or replacing the grated coconut with grated cheddar cheese. Colourful klepon has been created using potato-based dough and food colouring to make them more appealing for children. Klepon is quite similar to Kue putu, with the difference in its shape and the flour being used — klepon uses glutinous rice flour, while kue putu uses common rice flour, klepon has somewhat a chewy sticky texture similar to mochi, while kue putu has soft yet crumbly texture akin to common cake. Klepon shape is balls. There is a modern fusion that combine the baking technique of cupcake with onde-onde ingredients. List of Indonesian cuisine Javanese cuisine List of stuffed dishes
