133 Participate in Boys and Girls Fishing Tournament in Ocean City

first_imgTop winners in the 2014 Ocean City Boys and Girls Surf Fishing Tournament are, from left, Lauren Hazewski, 14, Avondale, PA; Ayden Cherry, 12, Brooklyn, NY; Madison Schwartz, 10, Egg Harbor Township; and Reese Dawson, 13, Maple Shade, NJ.Gobs of seaweed and a surprising lack of fish did not deter 133 youngsters who competed in the 38th annual Boys and Girls Surf Fishing Tournament on Saturday morning, August 9.Bridget Hazewski, 8, Avondale, PA, wins a $200 custom-made fishing rod in a drawing during the Boys and Girls Surf Fishing Tournament.The free event, co-sponsored by the historic Ocean City Fishing Club and the City’s Department of Recreation, took place during an outgoing tide on the north beach near the Ocean City-Longport Bridge.During the two-hour tournament, boys and girls between 8 and 16 reeled in a grand total of 21 fish — 19 summer flounder and two sharks. By contrast, last year’s total was 187 fish of seven different species caught by 114 kids.Four youngsters took top trophies this year for their angling skill:Most fish caught by a girl: Lauren Hazewski, 14, of Avondale, PA, with three fishLargest fish by a girl: Madison Schwartz, 10, of Egg Harbor Township, with a 17-inch flounderMost fish by a boy: Reese Dawson, 13, of Maple Shade, NJ, with two flounder caught during his first-ever surf fishing experienceLargest fish by a boy: Ayden Cherry, 12, of Brooklyn, NY, with an 18-inch flounder, the minimum legal limit.In addition, Lauren Hazewski’s eight-year-old sister, Bridget, won a drawing after the tournament and took home a $200 custom-made rod by Mike Kulick of KM Custom Rods in Cape May County. The eight-foot rod was especially made by Kulick for the tournament.Youngsters also took home prizes in each of three age categories.The ones who traveled the most distance to compete were probably twin brothers Jonathan and Alexander Logie, 13, of Cupertino, CA. They said they return every year to fish the tournament with their cousin, James Willis Logie, 13, of Taneytown, MD.The chair and co-chair of the event are, respectively, Ralph Miller and Ed Hoban. Margaret Feil, of Ocean View, was responsible for registration and tallying the final results.Founded in 1913, the Ocean City Fishing Club is the oldest, continuously operating fishing club in the United States. On Thursday, August 14, it will hold an Open House at its pier near 14th Street and the Boardwalk from 6 to 8:30 pm.The club also co-sponsors an annual Invitational Surf Fishing Tournament for teams and individuals. Now in its 47th year, this competition will take place on Saturday, October 18, along the Ocean City beaches.— News release from George Ingram for the Ocean City Fishing Clublast_img read more

The New Mastersounds Groove Through Saturday Afternoon Set At Brooklyn Bowl [Photos]

first_imgLoad remaining images British funk-rock quartet The New Mastersounds were back at Brooklyn Bowl for a relaxed, but groovy afternoon performance at the New York City venue on Saturday. The band’s weekend stint at the Brooklyn concert venue/bowling alley acted as the final dates on their spring run of North American shows in celebration of their 20th anniversary this year. After getting their New York fans warmed up with a show at “The Bowl” on Friday night, the band was back in action early with a 2 p.m. performance in front of mostly young families as the group eased a mix of adults and kids into what was a perfect spring afternoon in the city on Saturday.Related: The New Mastersounds Announce Three-Night Colorado Run With Ghost-NoteThe 90-minute afternoon set didn’t quite have the musical ferocity for which the band can be known to reach at times. The show was still just as entertaining and full of surprises however as guitarist Eddie Roberts, drummer Simon Allen, bassist Pete Shand, and pianist Joe Tatton treated fans to sit-ins from horn players in addition to singer and recent collaborator, Lamar Williams Jr. Williams, son of former Allman Brothers Band bassist Lamar Williams, joined the band towards the latter end of their afternoon set, where he added some smooth vocals to the mostly-instrumental group in performing the recently-released “Let’s Go Back” and “Trouble”. The addition to Williams added some extra energy as they charged towards the end of their set, which had already been filed with a mix of fantastic back-and-forth lead work from all four members.Scroll down to check out the gallery of photos from Saturday’s afternoon performance below, courtesy of Tom Coyote.The band will continue their 2019 campaign with a brief run of shows in California, Virginia, and Pennsylvania throughout the first half of July. They’ll then return to the U.S. again come fall for another run of shows set to begin on September 27th in Atlanta and continue until October 17th in Chicago. Fans can head to the band’s website for tickets.The New Mastersounds | Brooklyn Bowl | Brooklyn, NY | 5/18/2019 | Photos: Tom Coyotelast_img read more

Harvard launches Arts and Sciences campaign

first_img The Harvard Campaign for Arts and Sciences celebrates Harvard as a place of discovery for people leading positive change in the world. This video honors the many discoveries our students and faculty make each day—and the impact those discoveries have on individuals and the world. These personal stories highlight Harvard’s special ability to create leaders, advance knowledge, improve learning, and inspire discovery.Each of the six campaign priorities, Smith said, concentrates on a simple concept: “making sure Harvard continues as a place of discovery for people leading positive change in the world. Scientists and scholars, poets and entrepreneurs: that’s our heritage, and our future.”President Drew Faust spoke of the importance of FAS as part of One Harvard, lauding the world-renowned intellectual dynamism that grew out of a small college on the frontier of colonial Massachusetts.“What we are here to celebrate and support today — Harvard College and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences — is where the University began,” said Faust, Lincoln Professor of History. “This is where humble, experimental, daring little Harvard originated. And what has blossomed here ever since has fundamentally shaped Harvard’s character, its progress, and its vital aspirations — not to mention the wider world.”In launching the campaign, Faust said, Harvard is pursuing “a future ripe with possibility and filled with change. This is a campaign about resources. But far more that that, it’s a campaign about … the singular role of this University in educating the citizens and leaders of tomorrow, and in spurring the quest for deep knowledge and deeper understanding in a world fraught with challenge, and thirsty for powerful ideas.”Earlier in the week, SEAS, one of the four Schools that make up FAS, convened supporters and friends at a separate launch event, at which Faust highlighted the importance of a strong school of engineering and applied science in a world-class university. SEAS Dean Cherry A. Murray also outlined the School’s campaign priorities: support for faculty, graduate students, innovative pedagogy, and targeted academic and research initiatives.Emphasizing the combined strengths of a rigorous engineering program embedded in a diverse liberal arts environment, Murray said: “The most vexing problems of the 21st century will involve technology in their solutions, but none can be solved with technology alone. It is vitally important that future engineering leaders — and leaders in any field — understand not just the technical possibilities, but also the human and societal context of these solutions.”Following Saturday morning’s program at Sanders, more than a thousand Harvard alumni spread out across Harvard Yard to attend symposia at which prominent faculty members discussed topical issues in scholarship and teaching.Dean of Arts and Humanities Diana Sorensen led a panel on the role of the arts and humanities in society, while Dean of Science Jeremy Bloxham moderated a discussion about how basic research can solve critical questions from climate change to disease.Other sessions focused on issues such as biological influences on human behavior, real-world applications for foundational scientific research, the role of residential education in an online world, and how the College’s financial aid program enables extraordinary people from all backgrounds to choose Harvard.In a packed lecture hall at the Science Center, Professor Gary King led a group of faculty members as they reflected on how the ability to compile vast quantities of information, through improved technology and new tools for data collection, is being used to answer questions about everything from health and medicine to the Milky Way.“Big data is not about the data. The value is in the analytics,” said King, the Albert J. Weatherhead III University Professor and director of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science. To illustrate the point, King and his team of social scientists, statisticians, and graduate students recently used computer algorithms to analyze 64,000 senatorial press releases, determining that 27 percent of them were more about partisan taunting than problem solving.“Science is about inferences,” King said, “it’s about using data you have … to learn about data you don’t have.”Tim Kaxiras, John Hasbrouck Van Vleck Professor of Pure and Applied Physics, is leading a pedagogical method that extends big data inferences into the classroom. “I’m really passionate about infusing what we do in the lab and in our research into the classroom and educating our students, both undergraduate and graduate levels,” he said. “There is a recent effort to infuse regular courses with computational science components.”Kaxiras pointed to his Physical Sciences 12B course, which teaches traditional physics subjects through analytical and experimental perspectives that allow students to visualize electrical magnetic fields in clearer ways.Across the Yard, Professor Peter Bol, Harvard’s new Vice Provost for Advances in Learning, joined in a discussion about how the Harvard classroom is evolving in response to a generation of “digital native” students with creative pedagogical experimentation, new methods of assessment, and the introduction of HarvardX. Because his HarvardX course on China offers pre-recorded lectures online, Bol said, actual classroom time can be devoted to in-class discussion — and students have responded with vigor.“We spend the whole hour talking with students, and we have extraordinary, nonstop discussions — everyone wants to participate,” said Bol, the Carswell Professor of East Asian Languages and Civilizations. “What comes out of that, I think, is a more engaged student body … one of the skills students now learn [as a result] is to participate, to speak their minds, to listen to each other and respond to one another. And we thought, how could we help our online students around the world to participate in the discussion, too?”The solution Bol decided on for his class was to tape the in-class discussion and then cut the video into segments, allowing a natural pause in the discussion. The online students were then prompted to have their own discussion, after which they could see how Harvard students and faculty concluded the classroom discussion.While the impact of technology on learning is clearly far-reaching, Bol said, it’s also deeply personal. “For me, as a teacher at this point in my life, it’s been a wonderfully renewing experience,” he said. “And for the students, it’s been deeply engaging.”For panelist David Malan, senior lecturer on computer science and instructor for Harvard’s popular Computer Science 50 class, access to online learning has revolutionized the teaching model, as well as CS50’s size. The class currently has 150,000 online students through edX.Such online resources, Malan said, have allowed faculty to “give students tools that allow them to navigate a fairly complex subject much more effectively. And I daresay we can produce CS50 better through this convergence of online and offline presentation of material than we could ever do on-campus only, or off-campus only. What this gives us is a mode of interacting differently with students … it’s no longer just seeing someone like me talk at you. It’s much more dynamic.”An attendee at the Leading and Learning symposia, Brad Gronek, A.L.M. ’05, said that the launch had done a great job of distilling what the campaign is trying to achieve: combining the best students worldwide with the best teachers.“The expansion that they’re working on will ensure that Harvard will stay the best university in the world, even in a world of change,” Gronek said. “The Harvard community will grow over the next few years, and people will really feel the connection that Harvard students have. … Those connections are much deeper than people can possibly imagine.” Michael D. Smith formally launched the $2.5 billion Harvard Campaign for Arts and Sciences on Saturday morning at a standing-room-only alumni event at Sanders Theatre. The gathering was followed by a series of symposia highlighting the faculty’s commitment to teaching, groundbreaking scholarship, and the residential learning model.In his remarks, Smith, the Dean of Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), emphasized the transformative power of the University’s commitment to leadership in learning.“At Harvard, we like to say that learning happens everywhere, not just in the classroom,” said Smith, the John H. Finley Jr. Professor of Engineering and Applied Sciences. “Intellectual stimulation abounds on our campus, pours out our gates to make a difference in the community, nation, and world around us. We keep pace with the world through the use of greater technology in our teaching and research. But we must continue to grasp for the magic that happens when the most promising students and the most talented faculty come together.“This is what makes Harvard unique, what fuels its broad-based excellence, what generates the incredible creativity, innovation, and ideas overflowing every seat and stage at Harvard,” Smith continued. “This is at the heart of our Campaign for Arts and Sciences.”During the program, Carl J. Martignetti ’81, M.B.A. ’85, co-chair of the FAS Campaign Steering Committee, announced that the campaign has already raised $1 billion from 93,000 individual gifts during its quiet phase. Campaign co-chairs Glenn H. Hutchins ’77, J.D.-M.B.A. ’83, Sandy Edgerley ’84, M.B.A. ’89, and Paul Edgerley, M.B.A. ’83 also spoke at the event.Part of the $6.5 billion Harvard Campaign, the Campaign for Arts and Sciences celebrates Harvard — particularly Harvard College, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) — as a place of discovery for people leading positive change in the world. Its priorities, organized around six themes, strengthen core commitments and make important investments for the future:Leading in Learning, to support Harvard faculty as they drive innovation and explore a new world of teaching and learning, with a goal of $150 million.Financial Aid, to ensure every extraordinary student accepted can attend, with a goal of $600 million.House Renewal and the Student Experience, to develop Harvard’s Houses, recognizing that they are among the most important learning places on campus, with a goal of $500 million.Faculty and the Scholarly Enterprise, to connect the brightest minds across the broadest landscape of academic disciplines, encouraging fearless exploration and creative thinking, with a goal of $600 million.The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, to support its reimagining of engineering education and research for the 21st century, with a goal of $450 million.The Dean’s Leadership Fund, to provide the agility needed in a fast-moving world to grasp emerging opportunities, and meet unexpected challenges, with a goal of $250 million.Discoverylast_img read more

3 things to avoid when confronting an employee

Wendy works with the editorial team to help edit the content including current news, press releases, jobs and events. She keeps … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details If a member of your team is falling down on the job, approaching them with your concerns can be challenging. Despite your hesitations, it’s important that as their leader, you step up and confront them directly. Below are three things to avoid when addressing an employee to help make that awkward encounter just a bit easier.Making it about youThe key to a successful encounter with the employee is to view the situation from their perspective. Remember that a sit-down with their superior is understandably a nerve-wracking experience for them. Helping them to feel at ease will allow them to feel more comfortable opening up to you which will make the experience more productive.Being meanNo matter how serious the confrontation may be, how many concerns you have, or how frustrated you are, take time before the discussion begins to collect yourself. Do not go into the encounter with a temper or with strong emotion. Being a leader means that even if tough situations arise, it’s up to you to remain professional and encouraging.Being secretiveMake sure that all parties involved are fully aware of the reason for the encounter and what will be specifically discussed. That leaves no room for unrealistic expectations and also gives everyone involved the opportunity to be fully prepared.last_img read more

BLOG: Insurance Commissioner Announces Proposed Solution to Protect Health Care Consumers from Surprise Balance Bills (ROUND-UP)

first_img By: Sophie Stone, Deputy Press Secretary BLOG: Insurance Commissioner Announces Proposed Solution to Protect Health Care Consumers from Surprise Balance Bills (ROUND-UP) Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf January 20, 2016center_img Efficiency,  Round-Up,  The Blog Yesterday, Insurance Commissioner Teresa Miller announced a proposed solution to protect health care consumers from surprise balance bills. The Pennsylvania Insurance Department will be soliciting public comment on the proposal.Surprise balance bills happen when a consumer receives emergency care, or has made a good faith effort to use health care providers and facilities in the consumer’s health insurance network, but has unexpectedly received a service from a provider or at a facility that is out-of-network, then receives a bill for that service.The goal of this proposal is to take consumers out of billing disputes between insurers and health care providers. In order to meet this goal, the Department is looking forward to working collaboratively with the General Assembly, consumers, and stakeholder groups to draft legislation on this issue.Check out some of the coverage of the commissioner’s announcement:Scranton Times-Tribune: Editorial: State sides with consumers.“The state Insurance Department is ready to help shield consumers from some of the worst fallout from the rapidly changing health care industry… State Insurance Commissioner Teresa Miller has proposed a sound solution that makes out-of-network treatment the problem of providers and insurers, rather than consumers. The proposal, akin to solutions already in effect in several other states, would remove consumers from payment disputes between providers and insurers… This is a nonpartisan solution that lawmakers should embrace. And it’s a step toward an even better solution — a state law that would require all providers to accept any valid insurance, with an arbitration system to prevent insurers or providers from gaining an unfair advantage. Ms. Miller’s proposal is a reminder that the consumer is a vital but often forgotten party in the rapidly changing health care industry. The Legislature should move quickly to adopt the badly needed consumer protection.”Reading Eagle: Arbitration suggested for medical billing disputes.“After months studying a growing balance billing problem, Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner Teresa D. Miller suggests patients should be removed from the dispute… In July, state Sen. Judy Schwank and U.S. Sen. Bob Casey Jr. wrote letters to state and federal departments with oversight looking for possible fixes to the problem… Schwank said Miller’s proposal strikes a good balance that she could support. ‘We have an insurance commissioner in our corner,’ the Ruscombmanor Township Democrat said… ‘It’s going to eliminate people from having to pay for something they shouldn’t have to pay for,’ said [Jay Mahoney, an insurance agent with Gallen Insurance in Cumru Townshi], who described the proposal as a win for patients. ‘It’s not confrontational. I think working it out this way is the right way to handle the situation.’”Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Pa. insurance regulator eyes an end to ‘surprise’ medical bills.“Pennsylvania’s insurance commissioner wants to remove the surprise factor from bills for out-of-network medical care. On Tuesday, Commissioner Teresa Miller unveiled a proposal aimed at easing financial pain for patients adversely impacted by so-called surprise balance bills. She’s asking the public to offer feedback online to the proposal that she hopes eventually will lead to legislation… Janice Nathan of Squirrel Hill got caught up in a balance bill dispute last year after being charged $329 for an out-of-network stress test. She underwent the test at UPMC Shadyside, an in-network facility under her plan, but learned after receiving a bill that the physician performing her procedure was an out-of-network contractor… ‘I think this new idea is wonderful,’ she said of Miller’s proposal. ‘It’s going to protect a lot of people who won’t have to waste the time and energy that I did. My bill was small compared to some of these others.’”Philadelphia Inquirer: Gov. Wolf proposes bill to protect patients from ‘balance billing.’“The Wolf administration on Tuesday proposed strong consumer protections against surprise bills from providers outside patients’ health insurance networks, tackling an issue that has swiftly gained prominence nationwide and largely eluded effective political solutions. The proposal, which includes a 19-page draft bill – it has neither been introduced nor debated by lawmakers – removes consumers from disputes between providers and insurers over out-of-network bills, and requires both sides to agree to binding arbitration of disputes on a tight timeline or face hefty fines… Surprise bills, sometimes called balance billing, have become a major consumer issue in just the last few years. A Consumer Reports survey last year found that nearly one-third of privately insured Americans reported receiving unexpected bills of all kinds.”AP: Insurance regulator eyes an end to ‘surprise’ medical bills. “Pennsylvania’s insurance regulator is floating a proposal to protect people against expensive medical bills at out-of-network rates, including emergency care. Insurance Commissioner Teresa Miller said Tuesday her goal is to take consumers out of billing disputes between insurers and health care providers. Under her proposal, the consumer would be liable for nothing more than they would pay a provider for an in-network service. Providers and insurers would have to work out any additional payment, if there’s anything beyond that.” SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
