Credit: MyangellEvery year, LCPC Parent Education tithes back 10% of their fundraising proceeds to a charity that benefits children and families. This past summer, they selected HOPE GARDENS FAMILY CENTER (located just 20 minutes from La Canada) as their annual recipient. Their gift, which was doubled by another donor, allowed Hope Gardens to upgrade their computer labs and AV equipment to support online distance learning and school accommodation for the children and youth (through age 18) who live on campus.Hope Gardens Family Center is a ministry of Union Rescue Mission, a transitional residential facility located on 77 acres in Sylmar, for mothers and their children formerly experiencing homelessness. Hope Gardens provides a sanctuary for these families who have been living on the streets due to economic hardships, illness, abuse, or other unfortunate circumstances. This oasis of hope helps women and their children transition from homelessness to independence over three years by offering services, training, counseling, educational opportunities, and spiritual care. As one of the staff so lovingly cited: “Here at Hope Gardens, our mission is not just transition but transformation.”Parent Education Director, Anne Bierling, who toured Hope Gardens with her son Grant said: “While the pandemic has limited all of our lives, it also reminds us of the obstacles that many endure constantly. And so, the faith, persistence, and grit of those who consistently ‘do life’ amidst limited options has inspired us to LEARN from their powerful examples and LEAN into all the needs around us.”For more information about how you can support this important ministry, go to www.urm.org/donate (specify Hope Gardens). Tutoring, donations, and in-kind gifts (listed below) are needed and appreciated at this time. Contact Volunteer Coordinator, Shirley Rayburn at 213-347- 6308 or email at [email protected] needs can be dropped off at Hope Gardens @ 12249 Lopez Canyon Road, Sylmar, CA 91342.

Hamilton slams ‘white-dominated’ F1 for silence over Floyd death

first_imgLewis Hamilton said the problem of racism was not confined to America But he added: “There can be no peace until our so-called leaders make change. This is not just America, this is the UK, this is Spain, this is Italy and all over.“The way minorities are treated has to change, how you educate those in your country of equality, racism, classism and that we are all the same!“We are not born with racism and hate in our hearts, it is taught by those we look up to.”Basketball legend Jordan joined a chorus of voices from the NBA, NFL and other US sports demanding change for black Americans, but the calls weren’t limited to the United States.French footballer Marcus Thuram and England international Jadon Sancho both called for justice for Floyd after scoring in Germany’s Bundesliga. Share on: WhatsAppcenter_img London, United Kingdom | AFP | World champion Lewis Hamilton criticised the “biggest of stars” in “white-dominated” Formula One for failing to speak out against racism as protests erupted around the United States.The Mercedes driver warned “I know who you are and I see you” as he accused his fellow drivers of “staying silent” following the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, during his arrest in Minneapolis.The videotaped incident has triggered unrest in several cities and led to an outpouring of condemnation from top athletes including Michael Jordan and Serena Williams.“I see those of you who are staying silent, some of you the biggest of stars yet you stay silent in the midst of injustice,” Hamilton wrote on Instagram.“Not a sign from anybody in my industry which of course is a white-dominated sport. I’m one of the only people of colour there yet I stand alone.“I would have thought by now you would see why this happens and say something about it but you can’t stand alongside us. Just know I know who you are and I see you.”Hamilton, the six-time world champion, said he supported only peaceful protesters, not those who have looted stores and set fire to buildings.last_img read more

Beaver Falls rallies to win Class AA title

first_imgby Genaro C. ArmasHERSHEY, Pa. (AP) — The Beaver Falls defense came in waves, and it didn’t stop whether the team was down 12 or surging ahead in the fourth quarter.The Tigers’ pressure finally wore down Holy Cross late, especially with the Crusaders’ 6-foot-6 center Josh Kosin in foul trouble.The Tigers took advantage of Kosin’s absence by attacking the basket, hitting 3-pointers and making clutch foul shots down the stretch to rally for a 69-63 victory Saturday to win the state Class AA title.“We just ramped up the pressure a little bit to a level perhaps that they hadn’t seen,” Tigers coach Doug Biega said. “I’m just very proud of how our team closed the game.”Micoy Mason hit two late 3-pointers and finished with 14 points for the WPIAL champions, who lost in the finals last year to Imhotep Charter, this year’s Class AAA champ. Four Tigers finished in double figures.But the Tigers (28-3) pride themselves especially on defense. They limited the Scranton-area Crusaders (27-6) to 36 percent shooting in the second half after Holy Cross hit 60 percent before halftime.Having Kosin (25 points, 11 rebounds) hampered with four fouls for much of the second half didn’t help. Holy Cross led by eight at the half and 48-41 after three quarters thanks in large part to Kosin.He understandably plays a huge part in stabilizing Holy Cross on the offensive end, and provides a defensive presence down low.But the Crusaders seemed to lose aggressiveness as Kosin and frontcourt-mate Casey Gaughan (10 points) battled foul trouble. Gaughan also entered the fourth with four fouls and eventually fouled out.“Anytime guys get in foul trouble, we have a problem. We get short in a hurry,” Holy Cross coach Al Callejas said. “We had two guys in foul trouble and that kind of hurt us. It was a physical game.”Beaver Falls got its last seven points at the foul line, including a pair of big shots by Drew Cook with 10 seconds left.Just seconds earlier Cook missed two foul shots with his team leading by three. The errant free throws breathed new life into Holy Cross’ hopes for a miracle comeback. But Cook (15 points, six rebounds) dashed those hopes by sinking both shots.Beaver Falls finished 8-of-21 shooting from the 3-point arc, including the three 3s in the final five minutes — two by Mason — and a handful of 3s in the first quarter that helped the Tigers hang in the game after Kosin dominated early.“If we’re hitting our 3s and executing our plays, we’ll be in pretty good shape, and that’s what happened,” Mason said.Beaver Falls’ Dan Stratton scored 14 points before fouling out, while Elijah Cottrill added 12.Holy Cross controlled the pace early, buoyed by a boisterous student section that showed up in white for a makeshift “whiteout” inside the Giant Center.Kosin gave Holy Cross a 35-27 halftime lead by altering a couple of shot attempts on the defensive end and hitting a pair of foul shots after chasing down a loose ball.“We threw everything but the kitchen sink at that kid to stop him, and we really didn’t,” Biega said. “He scored 25 points in 27 minutes.”What did stop limit Kosin was foul trouble.Kosin picked up his fourth foul with 1:06 left in the third quarter. He and Gaughan were on the bench when the fourth quarter started, but the pair quickly re-entered as Callejas sought to slow down the Tigers’ momentum.It didn’t really help. The Crusaders were outscored 28-15 in the final quarter.“I’m so proud of our effort,” Callejas said. “Give Beaver Falls credit … They hustled all over the place. Eventually that’s what cost us.”Callejas’ son, Connor, finished with 12 points and six assists for the Crusaders.Beaver Falls last won a state title in 2005.

Read to your children today

first_imgDuring World Read Aloud Day in 2015, the Nal’ibali story reached the ears of nearly 166 000 children thanks to the efforts of parents and caregivers who took part. (Image: Nal’ibali)The Nal’ibali national reading-for-enjoyment campaign invites people from across the country to enjoy their story during this year’s World Read Aloud Day on Wednesday, 24 February.Reading out loud to your children is an important part of developing a young child’s understanding of language and this, coupled with a story that appeals to the child, can develop and reinforce a love of reading.To mark the day, the Nal’ibali campaign has issued a brand-new story for the enjoyment of adults and children throughout the country. It calls on parents and caregivers to read its new story out loud to the children in their care.This year the campaign has also called on the help of celebrated South African musician Yvonne Chaka Chaka to lend her support in making this year’s campaign a success.The Princess of Africa, as the singer is known, will be giving her own special reading in isiZulu to children at Orlando Stadium in Soweto together with players from the Orlando Pirates Football Club. The footballers will also launch their own reading club, the Orlando Pirates Reading Stars.This year the campaign has also called on the help of celebrated South African musician Yvonne Chaka Chaka to lend her support in making this year’s campaign a success.A READING NATIONDuring World Read Aloud Day in 2015, the Nal’ibali story reached the ears of nearly 166 000 children thanks to the efforts of parents and caregivers who took part.“If we want our children to grow up as strong and powerful readers, we must demonstrate reading for them,” said Jade Jacobsohn, the managing director of Nal’ibali.“When you read aloud to a child, you show them what reading looks like and how to make sense of text. Exposing them to new words and expressions used in stories helps to develop their vocabularies and provides a rich pool of language for children to draw from when they want to read and write on their own.”Carole Bloch, the executive director of Praesa, the Project for the Study of Alternative Education South Africa, said that the power of reading out loud was enriching for parents and children. It was a way of establishing foundational knowledge and motivating young children as they learned to read.Praesa was one of the bodies most heavily involved in the establishment of the Nal’ibali campaign as a co-founder and major contributor to the successes of the campaign.To boost the number of children who benefited from the event in 2015, the campaign sought the input of other organisations, such as partners Rotary District 9350, Western Cape; Love Life Nongoma; the Family Literacy Project and Zisize Ingwavuma Educational Trust in KwaZulu-Natal; and the Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal departments of education.As a collective, these organisations have pledged to read to as many as 100 000 children across the country.Now, Nal’ibali is calling on teachers, librarians, parents and grandparents, caregivers, reading club leaders and fellow literacy organisations to do the same.“Last year through a huge and wonderful celebration we created something very special: a joyful reading of the same story in 11 different languages to children across South Africa,” said Bloch.“There are over 17 000 000 children in South Africa with only around 5% being read to by their caregivers. World Read Aloud Day celebrates the joy of sharing a good story and we hope that even more adults in South Africa will join us this year.”GET READING OUT LOUDThis year’s story is entitled Neo and the Big Wide World, and is written by Vianne Venter. It is available for free for download on Nal’ibali’s website and mobile site.It has been translated into all 11 official South African languages as well as Braille and South African Sign Language to make sure everybody can enjoy the story in their preferred language.Members of the public are encouraged to sign up via either one of these sites and share how many children they will be reading to and add it to the national tally.PLAY YOUR PARTAre you playing your part in developing South Africa and its citizens? If so, submit your story or video to our website and let us know what you are doing to improve the country for all.last_img read more

Death by Prototype: Why Just Getting Started Isn’t Enough

first_imgIn an office somewhere, leadership continues to discuss just how effective the cloud would be for collaboration and efficiency but hesitates to make a move toward an integrated system. Elsewhere, another company spends thousands on blockchain research and development with little to show for it. And then there’s that artificial intelligence and machine learning team that keeps sharing news of great outcomes but doesn’t have anything ready for production just yet.Does this sound like something you’ve seen or dealt with at work?There are always challenges when attempting to employ emerging technologies, especially when there’s no clear pathway toward adoption.Unfortunately, it can be easier to get caught up in the hype than to make a robust road map.How New Technologies Get on BoardNew technologies typically infiltrate companies in one of a few ways. Maybe an executive read about the success a competitor achieved with the application of a new piece of technology, or a senior leader attended a conference and saw an opportunity to create competitive advantage by using the latest, greatest tool. Perhaps an article or a podcast started it all.Other times, though, there’s an almost grassroots effort to incorporate emerging technology into existing workflows. Maybe vocal members on a team somewhere within the company are actively exploring an area of interest, and they pitch leadership on why it would be a game changer for the company. Another person might want to transition careers into a new domain, so he or she starts driving adoption to accelerate that change through a proof of concept.Both entry points often begin with the construction of prototypes designed to demonstrate how some new technology could work. These one-off solutions are typically built in a silo, meaning they have little executive commitment and are free to ignore the burden of scalability.After all, prototypes are easy to create, inexpensive, and they don’t come with any long-term commitments. The due diligence necessary for building production-ready systems simply isn’t needed during this initial stage. This makes for quick internal wins that executives can applaud in celebrating the company’s culture of innovation. Not to mention that this exercise is fun and exciting for employees and offers a brief distraction from the daily grind. Then, after the excitement dissipates, the projects sit in stasis.These scenarios reflect the traps companies have fallen into for decades.Failure to LaunchThe latest technologies to sweep the corporate world — AI and machine learning — face the same kind of adoption challenges, and they provide helpful context when examining the “death by prototype” problem.These technologies represent a black box to many business leaders. This means executives are often hesitant to move past the prototype phase, even when initial implementations yield positive results.With these types of projects, it’s fairly easy to show success in a controlled environment. When AI and machine learning fail, though, the results can be devastating. Understandably, risking business operations by depending on the technology at scale is an uncomfortable prospect for many leaders.This also presents a unique psychological hurdle: A successful AI or machine learning implementation will almost certainly eliminate work previously conducted by humans. This might excite executives who are generally optimistic about an automated future, but a 2019 Edelman survey shows that only 30% of the general public has a positive outlook regarding AI in the workplace. It’s not hard to see why AI projects fail. Who wants to actively push for technology that they believe could make their roles obsolete?Then, of course, there are AI’s programming challenges. Finding and recruiting the personnel with the skills to lead and execute a successful, large-scale implementation takes capital. Most organizations simply aren’t ready to match the faith in an outcome with the investment required to realize it.However, those that have taken that leap of faith are often rewarded handsomely. When surveyed by McKinsey & Company, a combined 78% of businesses said that they were capturing either significant or moderate value from AI adoption across different business areas. A mere 1% noted “no or negative value” after implementation.Although technologies such as machine learning and AI challenge the human psyche in ways that few others can, they promise to give bold business leaders tangible competitive advantage. If you hope for the same results within your business, here are five recommendations to consider before taking the prototyping leap:1. Consider finances first. Focus your prototype investments in the areas of the business that have the financial potential to scale. If that capital isn’t already on hand, map out a comprehensive plan for securing it. If you know you’d have trouble securing the resources to move beyond proof of concept for a prototype, avoid investing too much time and energy into it.2. Identify the problem. Be clear about what you’re trying to accomplish by deploying AI, machine learning, or any other functional technology solution. The value derived from the implementation must be scalable enough to justify the investment, so focus on areas of the business where you can achieve this. If your prototype will only generate nominal incremental value or if there’s no line of sight to a return on investment, look for areas that could benefit more from prototyped solutions.Finally, not all prototypes must lead to revenue. Understand the line between prototypes that provide new layers of value by expanding knowledge and ones that can successfully operationalize.3. Create a full-fledged plan. Don’t begin building a prototype without first discussing and planning — at a high level — what comes after the prototype stage. Having general consensus and buy-in on what follows a successful prototype will accelerate the maturation stages of the project and keep leadership in tune with the longer-term goals of the prototype’s initiative. Plotting out these overarching next steps (and spending the hours to do so) will keep teams accountable for moving past the prototype stage.4. Build a prototype portfolio. If you’re committed to prototyping AI, machine learning, or other solutions, building and managing a portfolio of prototypes will unify your business’s experimentation with the technologies while maximizing knowledge sharing. Besides this, prototype portfolios will drive superior outcomes. When you compare prototypes against one another, you’ll advance your ability to identify and define success.5. Develop a promotion program. A successful prototype promotion doesn’t guarantee operationalization. You might have multiple levels of prototypes that are in different stages of their life cycles. For example, you could outline a tiered approach where the first tier confirms the possibility for value, the next tier tests scaling approaches, the next tests operationalization, and the final tier yields a production-ready solution.Beginning any technological implementation without a plan for capturing real value could be a recipe for failure.A prototype is a great step in the right direction, but simply building a prototype should never be your end goal. AI, machine learning, and other emerging technologies hold unbelievable promise. But the companies that succeed with these solutions have to take bold risks, overcome implementation challenges, and ultimately, build more than just a prototype.

Increased Activity Drives Port of Esbjergs Earnings Up

first_imgzoom Danish port of Esbjerg has reported a record turnover of EUR 30.94 million for 2016, mainly driven by a high level of activity at the port related to wind, RoRo traffic and car imports.The port, which also saw a record net profit of EUR 10.68 million for the year, said that the high activity is expected to continue in 2017.“With the planned expansion of the 250,000 m2 East port area well underway, the port of Esbjerg is ready to handle a continued high level of activity and a growing demand for its areas,” port of Esbjerg said.Cargo turnover rose 6 percent compared to 2015 and the port set a new record in terms of ship calls and imported cars. Meanwhile, 1,100 MW of offshore wind capacity was shipped from the port, which is more than double the amount in 2015, and demand for the port’s areas increased, according to the port.“We are satisfied with the result. It reflects the fact that the Port of Esbjerg is in very good shape,” Flemming N. Enevoldsen, Chairman of the Port of Esbjerg’s board, said.The port of Esbjerg is both the Northern European market leader within offshore wind and the Danish center for RoRo traffic and oil and gas, making the port resistant towards unavoidable fluctuations in the markets.“The expectation that the high activity will continue in 2017 combined with an increasing demand for areas from especially the wind industry means that the port’s investment of nearly EUR 27 million in the 250,000 m2 expansion of the East port comes at the right time,” the port of Esbjerg said, adding that the expansion is expected to be complete by the end of 2017.last_img read more
