Support the Orlando Cat Café

By Sarah Oulman

In a collaborative effort with The Animal League and Axum Coffee, the Orlando Cat Café has quickly risen in popularity amongst locals in the Clermont area and even travelers from across the country. Here, patrons have the opportunity to not only play with the sweetest rescue cats but also to give these furry friends some new homes. Getting a new pet is a major commitment. The Cat Café allows you to meet your furry friend in a comfortable environment before making your decision.

“The Cat Café usually has anywhere from 12-18 cats at a time,” said Kathie Camara, a volunteer working with the cats. Since opening in September of 2016, there have been 60 successful adoptions, which is a wonderful feat!

The cat play area and café are separated with two different air conditioning systems, meaning there is no cross contamination. As a result, those who are allergic can grab a coffee and watch the felines through a glass viewing window.

According to one worker named Chelsea, many people find the experience very stress-reducing. “A lot of people that can’t have cats come here so they can get their fix,” she stated. She explained that many people have family members who are allergic to cats, and for these animal lovers, coming to the Cat Café allows them to spend time with some sweet rescues.

The Orlando Cat Café has so much to offer, from serving coffee and baked treats at the café area to bringing rescue cats and potential pet parents together. They even host yoga with the cats several times a month, as well as a Pilates class! You won’t want to miss out on a wonderful time over at the Orlando Cat Café, so go pay the rescue a visit next time you’re in Cagan Crossings! Learn more at: http://www.orlandocatcafe.com/

From Parent to Student: A Father's Experience at LSSC

By David Housley

It’s no secret, college can be overwhelming for anyone. Most students at LSSC are employed while taking multiple classes. They then dedicate a few hours each night to studying which consumes the scarce amount of free time they have left. If any student allows even a single day of procrastination, there will be a snowball effect. This effect will cause an inevitable pileup of homework. Consequently, adding young children to the mix turns college life into a high-stakes balancing act, stretching students to their limits. As a parent, I can relate to those students firsthand and sympathize with all the unexpected but costly incidences that occur because of parenthood.
I’ve been a student at LSSC since January 2017. Since first enrolling, I’ve had the additional responsibilities of fatherhood; working full-time and helping my wife raise our two boys who are now three years old and seven months old. While it is not uncommon for LSSC students to have a job, I can say with con…

Clermont Home to Supercross Legends

By: Sarah Oulman
CLERMONT, Florida – Aldon Baker, one of the most well-known and successful trainers within the Supercross community, is currently training several of the sport’s top riders at his facility, which is located in the Clermont area. In an interview at this training facility, Baker gave a glimpse into what it is actually like to train these professional riders.             When I asked Baker about his journey to becoming a trainer in his field, he explained that he initially trained individuals, specifically bicyclists, using cardio and strength conditioning techniques. Baker’s cycling career brought him from his home in South Africa to America, and once in the United States, the brand Oakley steered him towards working with motorcycles.             Baker also explained that his elite training program did not come together quickly. According to the celebrity trainer, “The [conditioning and training] developed over time… It took 17 years to create the full training package”. …

What Makes a Meme, Part 1: An Introduction

By Katie LeJeune    A screaming Meryl Streep, 80’s one-hit-wonder sensation Rick Astley, and the kids’ television show LazyTown. First impressions won’t help in figuring out the connection between the items on this list, unless, that is, you know your memes. The word meme was first coined by Richard Dawkins, a British scientist, in his book The Selfish Gene (1976). Back then, the word meme meant “a unit of cultural transmission.” Its current definition is still true to its roots, but Internet memes, the focus here, are a little more specific. While still allowing the vague freedom associated with previous definitions, the Merriam-Webster description takes into consideration the visual aspects brought forward via the Internet’s nature. But to some, technical definitions don’t truly capture the essence of memes. “It’s its own form of comedy,” explained self-proclaimed meme connoisseur Jonathan Eldredge, “but not everyone understands it.” Eldredge’s best friend Ryan Purvas, another conn…
