Issue with some users' icons (avatars)

Hi all, you may have noticed that many users have an odd anomaly with their icons/avatars: the images to the left of each persons' posts.  Some users have an icon that looks like this:
[Screen Shot 2019-04-10 at 9](//muut.com/u/footprint/s1/:footprint:udLY:screenshot20190410at9.28.48am.png.jpg)
...along with their screen-name, which can overlap the text and be distracting.

I asked the forum (muut) site administrators about this and they said it seems to be an issue with linking to a google+ account, since that service at google has ended.

Muut is working on a solution, but in the meantime, users that have the funny looking icons can replace them with any other icon of your choice by clicking your screenname in the menu bar at the top, click where it says "click to change" on your current icon, and then follow the directions.

Welcome to the ISCFC! And some advice on posting

Hi all- How great that you are all posting and commenting with such enthusiasm!  I have noticed that almost everyone lately is posting their comments with almost the same title "My carbon footprint" and in the same discussion stream ("Student footprints")

That's great, but please notice that we have a number of discussion topics that we encourage students to write about.  Including "Wants & Needs" "Sustainable City" "Home Grown" "Off the Table" and even "Big Ideas" for your most ambitious thoughts.

On a computer, the list of topics is on the right side of the page - on a mobile device, it is under the "Channels" menu link.  Click on the topic to see a description, some prompt questions, and previous posts by students.

When you write a post, you will see a drop down menu that allows you to choose which conversation topic in which to include your post - all posts from all topics show up on the ISCFC Discussion homepage.

Thanks again for all your thoughts and enjoy exploring the different conversations!

North Carolina coastal participants and Hurricane Matthew

Hi all.  I have been reading the news today and the coast of North Carolina has been experiencing severe impacts from Hurricane Matthew, including serious flooding. 

We have two participating schools from North Carolina in this session and both  are very close to the coast: Cape Fear Academy in Wilmington, NC and Croatan High School in Newport, NC.  We hope that all of the teachers students and their families are safe!

Matthew was one of the strongest hurricanes in the Caribbean ever recorded, and went incredibly quickly to Category 5 strength just before it arrived in and devastated Haiti.  The extremely warm waters in the Caribbean right now contributed to this intensity, thus drawing the connection to climate change.
