Timberland Library’s Family Read Aloud Kicks Off On March 2

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Timberland Regional LibraryPack up a sack of books and head to the kitchen, the living room and laundry room—even the bathroom and garage—and read some of your favorite stories aloud as a family. It’s time for the annual Timberland Regional Library (TRL) Family Read-Aloud, running from Saturday, March 2 (Dr. Seuss’s birthday) through Friday, April 12 (Beverly Cleary’s birthday).The program, now in its twelfth year, centers on the activity of families reading aloud together in different areas of their homes. As an early learning program, the Read-Aloud focuses on children from infancy to grade 3, though all of a family’s children are encouraged to join in the fun.“It’s no coincidence that we begin our read-aloud with the celebration of the birthday of Dr. Seuss and close with the celebration of the birthday of Beverly Cleary. Characters from books written by these beloved authors have become part of cherished childhood memories for many generations!” said Ellen Duffy, TRL’s Youth Services Coordinator.Families, as well as classrooms and child care providers, may pick up a Read Aloud Castle Start-up Kit at any Timberland library beginning on March 2, enter for chances to win prizes, and proceed to read in rooms all around their homes. The more rooms and spaces, the merrier. The kit includes a Read Aloud Castle on cardstock to color, a set of stickers, a Dr. Seuss bookmark, a door hanger and a prize drawing entry form. Booklists in the kits, all developed by TRL Youth Services staff include “100 Toddler Favorites,” which includes books and music, and “Books to Read Aloud,” the revised edition, featuring high appeal read-alouds for ages 3 to 12.Comments from families during last year’s Family Read-Aloud demonstrate that families enjoy and appreciate sharing books together. Specifically asked in what ways the program contributed to early learning for their children, families wrote comments such as these:Asking questions about stories and recognizing picturesBecoming more familiar with lettersHelping him to learn new wordsImproved language skillsShe is learning about storytelling and it has helped her attention spanIt has helped my child learn colors, shapes and concepts of print; rhymes and parts of a book.ImaginationAll 48 comments are listed at the end of the article, along with comments about what families enjoyed most about the program.What’s the Big Deal about Reading Aloud?“Research (and common sense) tells us that parents are the first and most important teachers of their children” said Ms. Duffy. What happens between parent and child is the best predictor of future success in school. Children who are read to from an early age develop better language skills, enhanced listening skills, larger vocabularies, and are more ready to read when they begin school.There is a tremendous body of research showing that a child’s emotional and social readiness is a strong predictor of school success. “Sitting comfortably together to share a story helps nurture the emotional bond between parent and child,” said Duffy.Recommended Books about Reading Aloud“Reading Magic: Why Reading Aloud to Our Children Will Change Their Lives Forever” by Mem Fox (2008 Revised Edition)“Reid’s Read-Alouds: Selections for Children and Teens” by Rob Reid (2009)“The Read-Aloud Handbook” by Jim Trelease  (any edition)PrizesEach Timberland library will award a grand prize: a backpack filled with books selected especially for the winning family or classroom. Many libraries will also have local drawings for books and other prizes during the program. Friends of the Library groups throughout the library system have generously provided many hundreds of books. Families may enjoy reading the gift book plates to see the variety of Friends groups that donated the books and their associated libraries.Complete details will be in libraries and online at no later than March 2, the date when kits will be at all Timberland libraries.last_img read more

Clergymen Accused of Sexual Abuse

first_imgThe proposed legislation is due to go before the Senate judiciary committee March 7. If approved, the change in law would apply to all sex abuse cases, not just those involving the Catholic Church. The Diocese of Trenton released the names of 30 clergymen Feb. 13 who had been “credibly accused” of sexually abusing minors, part of an attempt at transparency at a time when state law enforcement is probing sexual misconduct at dioceses across New Jersey. “Our first responsibility must always be to those who have endured sexual abuse as minors and the release of these names is our effort to express acceptance of their allegations as credible and to indicate the status of their alleged abusers,” Bishop David M. O’Connell said in a message posted on the Diocese of Trenton website. The 30 men – 28 priests and two deacons – served at churches and schools across a diocese that spans Mercer, Ocean, Burlington and Monmouth counties. Of that total, 17 of them are dead and 13 have been removed from the ministry, according to the diocese. “While this is a positive first step towards transparency and accountability, I hope this spirit of openness continues during the course of our ongoing investigation and in response to our requests for records and information,” he said. “Despite the recent actions by the dioceses, our investigation remains ongoing because no institution or individual is immune from accountability.” Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal said in a statement Feb. 13 that he was “pleased to see that our task force’s grand jury investigation has prompted the dioceses to finally take some measures to hold predator priests accountable.” “As a policy, and in an effort to protect and respect the privacy and well-being of victims, the Diocese of Trenton will not disclose further details about any of the specific allegations that led to a cleric’s inclusion in the published list of names,” diocese spokeswoman Rayanne Bennett said by email Feb. 25. This list of churches and schools where the 30 men served ran the gamut, from those in Red Bank to Rumson to Holmdel, among other places. Representatives of area churches directed questions to the diocese or did not return phone calls seeking comment. All five dioceses in New Jersey published the names of 188 clergymen who had been credibly accused of sexually abusing a minor. The timing of that action came roughly six months after New Jersey’s highest-ranking law enforcement official formed a task force in September to probe alleged sexual abuse by Catholic clergy around the state and attempts to cover up the crimes. In addition to providing their names and when they were born, the diocese listed the year each man was ordained and where he served. The list showed 19 of the 30 clergymen had multiple victims, although there was no information released about when or where the incidents occurred. “All allegations of the sexual abuse of a minor by clergy were reported to law enforcement upon the Diocese’s having received the complaint as per our memorandum of understanding with the prosecutors and the State Attorney General in 2002,” Bennett said.“Also, since 2002, parishes are notified when a priest is removed because of a credible allegation of the sexual abuse of a minor, and many of these already published in diocesan and secular media reports.” This comes as state lawmakers in NewJersey are looking to extend the statute oflimitations for victims of sexual abuse to filecivil lawsuits. Among other provisions of theproposed legislation, child victims would haveuntil they turn 55 years old to sue. “So that will be one option for survivors is to participate in that claims program,” said Ben Andreozzi, a Pennsylvania lawyer whose firm represents more than 100 victims of Catholic clergy abuse in New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including those against the Diocese of Trenton. Access the full list on the Diocese of Trenton website at “The problem is not how to deal with it ecclesiastically. The problem is really how to deal with it civilly,” said Jo-Renee Formicola, a professor of political science at Seton Hall University and expert on church-state relations. “Should they be reporting what they consider to be sins to civil authorities as crimes? And the question is, is it their responsibility to report crimes or is it their responsibility only to deal with sin?” Catholic Church leaders in New Jersey also have formed a compensation fund for victims of church sex abuse that occurred when they were children. As part of accepting money from the fund, they must agree “not to engage in any further litigation against the particular Diocese,” according to one of the rules of the fund. This week, Grewal’s office declined to say if it intended to take legal action against any of the dioceses in New Jersey. But for the church, dealing with clerical sex abuse raises questions about their responsibility to government authority. “It is our hope that thepublic presentation of thesenames will contribute tohealing the awful woundsthat victims have endured atthe hands of some clergy.” “It’s a fairly natural thing and a common occurrence for them to bury these recollections, if only for self-preservation,” said state Sen. Declan J. O’ Scanlon Jr. (R-13), one of the sponsors of the Senate bill, in a phone interview with The Two River Times Feb. 25. “Their normal, natural self-preservation inclinations shouldn’t shield the predators from paying the price for their actions.” By Philip Sean Curran This list is limited to churches in the 13 Two Rivertowns of Monmouth County. Some priests served morethan one parish during their careers. This is a list of clergymen in the Diocese of Trentonwho have been credibly accused of the sexual abuse of aminor as of Feb. 22, 2019.last_img read more

In the first two quarters, Drake’s seniors scored a combined 21 points including eight from Miller. The biggest difference in the half was three-point shooting. Both teams attempted 12 threes, but Drake, which made six, held the Braves to just the one late make from beyond the arc. HTML Box Score With the fourth quarter winding down, the seniors were subbed out one-by-one to a standing ovation from the Knapp Center crowd. The four seniors combined for 32 points, 15 rebounds, and six steals in their final game at the Knapp. Drake (25-5, 17-1 MVC) was led by junior Becca Hittner (Urbandale, Iowa) who had 21 points and four rebounds. Sara Rhine (Eldon, Mo.) finished just short of a double-double with 12 points and nine rebounds.

Why Dual Native ISO Should Be the New Industry Standard

first_imgWhat does “Dual Native ISO” mean, what does it do for your shots, and why would its acceptance in the film and video industries matter?Every few years, we see a new craze in the camera world. 24p, HD, Raw, 4K, and beyond — to name just a few from the last decade. I normally try to reserve judgement until second or third generations of new tech, but it seems there is a craze this year that I can’t help but get excited about.Dual native ISO. Rather than just an iterative change to existing features, dual native is a potential paradigm shift.So what’s it all about?Sensors 101All digital camera sensors work in pretty similar ways. The sensor holds millions of photosites known as pixels. Attached to each of these pixels is a circuit, which carries its information to the “analogue to digital converter.” In each of these circuits is what is known as the “Native Capacitor,” which is tuned to a set voltage that indicates its light sensitivity or ISO rating.Let’s say our imaginary camera is rated for 400 ISO. This gives our sensor, and thereby the camera at large, the same native ISO rating of 400.It is common knowledge among working professionals that it is always ideal to shoot at the native rating of the camera whenever possible. The reason why is because at native rating, the image is at its highest “signal-to-noise ratio.” This means that the final image will be as clean and noise-free as possible. But as anyone who has touched a camera before will tell you, lighting changes.Image via gnepphoto.In many cases, changing the f-stop or shutter speed is neither preferable or possible. Adjusting the ISO is the only other way to affect exposure. It’s pretty common to hear “gaining up” or “down” to mean adjusting ISO up or down (in some circles).When the user lowers the ISO from the camera’s native rating, the voltage to each photosite decreases; when user raises the ISO, more electricity hits each pixel. This is why noise is so apparent when pushing ISO to its upper extremes in camera — more electricity to each pixel creates a lot of excitable pixels. Slightly less obvious is the fact that reducing the ISO below native means the sensor is underperforming.Gaining up or down is usually a fix when the lighting is unchangeable for logistical reasons — and the best idea is typically to add or remove as little as possible.But, there’s a new class in sensor school that shakes up the rules a good bit.Dual Native ISOImage via Panasonic.As the name suggests, cameras with dual native have two native ISOs. Where normal sensors have a circuit for each pixel, sensors in cameras with dual native have two.Let’s say our imaginary camera now has a second ISO rating of 3200. As we gain up from 400 ISO, we see an expected increase in image noise. A strange thing happens once we pass 3200, however — the noise disappears. At 3200 ISO, the second circuit’s native capacitor takes over, resetting the noise in the image (or the “noise floor”).In the images below, you can see the difference in noise between just 4000 and 5000 ISO in a camera with dual native ISO. This showcase was put on by the Digital Cinema Society in 2015 to showcase the Varicam 35’s first-in-industry adoption of dual native ISO. In the Varicam 35, the second circuit takes over at 5000 ISO.Image via Digital Cinema Society.Image via Digital Cinema Society.As you can see, even though 5000 ISO is only a quarter of a stop brighter than 4000, the dual native sensor makes the image at 5000 orders of magnitude more usable.In our imaginary camera, this means that at 3200 ISO, we have the same noise profile as at 400, despite the fact that the image is now four full stops brighter. This point is where the “gain curve” resets with dual native cameras.Resetting the gain curve means higher ISO shooting with image quality unmatched by anything else on the market. From 3200 to 6400 ISO, the change in noise is the same as from 400 to 800 — resetting the gain curve continues to yield improvements to the top end of the ISO spectrum.Yes, that means at 25,600 ISO the noise in the image is the same as 3200 ISO on an identical camera without dual native.Dual native represents a shift in thought by camera manufacturers that I hope to see continue in the coming years. Panasonic, for example, could have announced the EVA-1 with the same feature set minus dual native and have still received a similar positive response. Instead, they and others chose to implement a feature that vastly opens up possibilities for filmmakers by challenging the notions of the parts of the cameras they produce.I think we should be looking to camera manufacturers to start expanding all possibilities of the camera — from sensor to battery mount.Cover image via Alex Yeung.Looking for more cinematography tips and tricks?
