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 www.TRL.org no later than March 2, the date when kits will be at all Timberland libraries.last_img read more

County Launches Online Cultural and Heritage Tours

first_imgThe County Division of Planning has announced the launch of its Cultural and Heritage Virtual Tour series, an interactive platform that includes eight digital tours of interconnected historical, natural, cultural and arts attractions in Monmouth County. Monmouth County is offering local history buffs an early holiday gift. These virtual tours can be viewed by visiting bit.ly/monmouthmap. The Cultural and Heritage Virtual Tours program was designed to increase public awareness about the natural, cultural, historic, scenic, architectural, institutional and commemorative sites located in Monmouth County. Each tour has a unique theme which showcases attractions throughout Monmouth County, in categories such as: scenic, historic, architectural, art, cultural, science and technology, military, civic spaces, neighborhoods, crossroad/downtowns/commercial districts, pop, culture, myth/folklore/legends, unique or unusual and more.  Recommended in the 2016 Monmouth County Master Plan and modeled after the federal and state scenic byway programs, the complete series results in a network of tours featuring all 53 municipalities within county lines. Additional sites are currently being considered for inclusion on the byway tours. To nominate a site, email the name, location, a brief description and photo (if possible) of the site to [email protected] MOCO Cultural Byway: The trail begins in Matawan before winding through the heart of the Two River area and down the shoreline to Asbury Park, documenting artistically and culturally significant sites along the way. From the massive satellite installations atop Telegraph Hill in Holmdel, which were once used as an anti-aircraft defense system during the Cold War, to the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank, to Monmouth Park in Oceanport, this tour best defines the Jersey Shore experience. The Historic Monmouth Crossroads: A 4-century-old path that winds from the Sandy Hook Bayshore in Highlands through Middletown, Holmdel and Colts Neck, all the way to Millstone. It was a prominent thoroughfare for Colonial and British troops during the Revolutionary War, but there are other surprises along the way, like the Evil Clown of Middletown on State Route 35.center_img Two River-area educators and enthusiasts can tap into local circuits like: Two River Tri-way: This is the shortest tour in the byway series, but it provides historic context regarding the importance of the Two River peninsula in the overall countywide narrative. Beginning in Red Bank, the tour travels to points east along River Road where a trolley once carried passengers between Red Bank and Rumson. Some sites noted on the tour are privately held and not open to the public. “We are bringing residents a new way to discover our county,” Freeholder Deputy Director Lillian G. Burry said. “These eight interactive story maps take you across the county, encompassing every imaginable point of interest, from Revolutionary War sites to space exploration; from natural landscapes to happenings in downtowns. And from solemn memorials to iconic pop culture landmarks.” Visitors can also take the Ocean Drive tour, which begins on Sandy Hook and heads south along the Atlantic Coast, the County to Coast Byway tour, which extends out from Sea Bright and explores 350 years of local settlement, the South Monmouth Emerald Byway, an exploration of wildlife from Point Pleasant to Manasquan, and Upper Freehold’s Historic Farmland. Bayshore Drive: The tour allows residents and visitors to travel along local streets to explore the region’s downtowns and waterfront destinations. Once comprised of colonies of summertime bungalows and maritime industries, the area is now active year-round. The Bayshore region is characterized by traditional downtowns and denser residential neighborhoods set against the natural beauty of the Raritan and Sandy Hook Bay coastline.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 dioceseoftrenton.org/committed-to-healing. “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

NASS research, survey, and technology advancements in 2017 serve U.S. agriculture

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) has advanced a number of programs in 2017 to serve U.S. agriculture with customer- and data-driven improvements. Among these enhancements are changes to the every-five-year census of agriculture, which officially launched at the end of November and is due in February 2018. For this census, NASS introduced an improved online questionnaire and included new questions to document changes and emerging trends in agriculture.“America’s 3 million farmers, ranchers and others involved in agriculture should receive their 2017 Census of Agriculture questionnaire in the coming days, if they haven’t already,” said Hubert Hamer, NASS administrator. “We ask that everyone respond promptly to represent themselves, their communities, and their industries, and to do so online, if possible. NASS heard customer feedback and worked hard to produce a user-friendly online questionnaire that saves time for producers and improves data quality.”Those responding to the census of agriculture can now use mobile and desktop devices and readily access frequently asked questions. The form automatically calculates totals and skips sections that do not pertain to an operation. New census questions are a result of public requests. These include a new question about military veteran status, expanded questions about food marketing practices, and questions about on-farm decision-making to help better capture the roles and contributions of beginning farmers, women farmers, and others involved in running a farm enterprise. Responses are due in February 2018.The census of agriculture is a complete count of all U.S. farms, ranches, and those who operate them. Conducted since 1840, it is the only source of uniform, comprehensive, and impartial agriculture data for every state and county in the country. Farmers and ranchers, trade associations, government, extension educators, researchers, and many others rely on census of agriculture data when making decisions that shape American agriculture – from creating and funding farm programs to boosting services for communities and the industry. The census of agriculture is a producer’s voice, future, and opportunity. Geospatial data for rapid disaster responseAnother 2017 accomplishment for NASS in service to U.S. agriculture was rapid disaster response to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.  For the first time, NASS used a satellite with cloud penetrating capability from the European Space Agency to provide geospatial assessments of impacted areas. This allowed the capture of real-time storm inundation over crop and pasture lands and the subsequent flood assessments. As a result, NASS was able to derive and provide a number of geospatial decision support products to help with response. These products included crop and pasture land inundated areas and percentages of impacted crops, estimates of precipitation totals, Cropland Data Layer (CDL) maps, and wind swaths or surface winds overlaid onto crop areas identified from the CDL product.  Access to and use of the satellite technology will allow NASS to provide rapid response to help with future extreme weather events. New and streamlined honey bee informationNASS published new data on the economics of beekeeping in its annual Honey report in March 2017. New data included prices for queens, expenditures, and estimates on pollination and other incomes. Additionally, NASS has combined the annual Colony Loss and the Bee and Honey Small Operations Production, Disposition, and Income surveys into one survey to streamline data collection and reduce the burden on respondents.  The name of the new survey is Bee and Honey Production and Loss Inquiry.  Other honey bee surveys — the Bee and Honey Production, Disposition, and Income as well as the quarterly Colony Loss — remain the same.last_img read more

Telecom Spending Spree: Time Warner Cable Snatches Up Enterprise Cloud Hosting and Management Company NaviSite

first_imgMassive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Hot on the heels of Verizon‘s acquisition of Terremark, Time Warner Cable is acquiring NaviSite, an enterprise cloud hosting and management company. Time Warner Cable will pay $5.50 a share, or approximately $230 million. Meanwhile, speculation is rampant that Savvis will be acquired, though its CEO James Ousley says things are business as usual for the company.NaviSite was founded in 1997. At the core of its service is NaviCloud, its infrastructure-as-a-service offering. According to Gartner, “NaviSite can offer its managed application services on NaviCloud, reducing its provisioning times for complex applications from several weeks to as little as an hour.”Last week when Verizon announced its acquisition of Terremark we predicted that telcos would go on a spending spree. Consolidation is a watch word this year as many large companies look to get into cloud computing. We quoted EMC‘s Vice President of Global Marketing and CTO Chuck Hollis’s saying “If you believe in the secular trend that — over time — more IT will be delivered as a service vs. consumed in a traditional fashion, you quickly realize that telcos can have a compelling position.”That does seem to the reasoning behind Time Warner’s acquisition today. From the announcement:“Our commercial services business is a key growth driver for the company and one in which we continue to see great opportunity,” said Glenn Britt, Chairman and CEO of Time Warner Cable. “NaviSite provides us with a successful managed services business and a new, innovative managed cloud platform representing significant new growth opportunities.Savvis and Terremark were positioned as a “Leaders” in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service and Web Hosting. NaviSite was positioned in the “Challengers” quadrant, but right on the edge of being a leader.

Can ‘Passive House’ Be Trademarked?

first_img Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details. Start Free Trial Already a member? Log in UPDATED on 4/3/2012Can the phrase “passive house” be trademarked? If the answer is yes, has any organization claimed the trademark yet?I decided to research these questions after I noticed a comment posted by Nils Davis on the Web site of the Silicon Valley Passive Building Coalition: “Passive House is a trademark of the Passive House Institute U.S.” That sentence made me sit up and pay attention — after all, if the phrase “passive house” is trademarked, it might be hard for builders of traditional passive solar homes to use the phrase in their marketing materials.I e-mailed Davis for more information. He responded, “At the time I wrote that I had been informed by Katrin Klingenberg (in a March 2009 e-mail) that the PHIUS had applied for trademark protection for Passive House and several associated terms.”Clearly, interest in trademarks is heating up in the Passivhaus community. The following advice was posted by C.A. Snyder on the Web site of the Michigan Energy Efficiency Network: “If you are interested in what Certified Passive Houses offer, protect your interests by looking for the trademarked logo and phrase ‘Certified Passive House.’ ”The Web site of a Wisconsin newspaper, the Hudson Star-Observer, reported that “The term passive house is the trademark name for a type of German-engineered building that is so well-insulated and air-tight it is warmed mostly by the sun.”Someone posting on an Irish energy-advice Web site claimed that “‘Passive House’ is a trademark held by the Passivhaus Institute of Darmstadt, Germany.” Hmm, I wondered — could that be true? Does anyone own the phrase “passive house”?Although it’s hard to do a thorough trademark search without investing a fair amount of money, it’s possible to do a preliminary search at a Web site maintained by the U.S. Patent and Trademark… center_img This article is only available to GBA Prime Memberslast_img read more

first_imgLove scored a season-high 32 points without attempting a 3-pointer, LeBron James added 30 following an interesting couple days on social media, and Cleveland withstood a 40-point performance by Giannis Antetokounmpo to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 124-119 on Tuesday night.The Cavs have been one of the NBA’s biggest surprises this season — for all the wrong reasons. But after losing five of six, they did enough to hand the young-and-improving Bucks their fourth straight loss and keep Cleveland fans from panicking.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutLove was briefly hospitalized after scoring just four points and leaving a surprising loss to Atlanta in the third quarter on Sunday.

Before the game, the Bucks got some scoring help by acquiring guard Eric Bledsoe from Phoenix in exchange for forward/center Greg Monroe and two draft picks.Afterward, coach Jason Kidd complained about the officiating. Milwaukee was called for 31 personals compared to 18 for Cleveland, and the Cavs attempted 38 free throws.Kidd pointed out that over the past three games, opponents have tried 95 free throws to 40 for Milwaukee.“I just got fined,” he said. “That’s one way. The other way is by expressing to the officials and I did that the whole night. The different crews that we’ve had have been awful.”Cleveland’s start to the season has been puzzling on so many levels. Loaded with as much talent as any team in the league, the Eastern Conference champions have been beating good teams and losing to squads they should be handling.“We don’t want to,” Love said. “We’d rather come out and play — because we’re capable — at a high level of basketball every single game. We have a ton of talent in here.”The myriad issues have led to the usual scrutiny of James, who caused a stir on social media Monday night.Moments after former teammate Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics beat the Hawks for their ninth straight win, James posted a meme on his Instagram account of the kids’ cartoon character Arthur with a clenched fist with the caption “mood.”Asked for the meaning, James shrugged.“I like Arthur,” he said.FIRST UNIT Plagued by slow starts through their first 10 games, the Cavs came out with better intensity and focus.Cleveland shot 69 percent from the floor (11 of 16) and made 14 of 15 free throws in the first quarter while opening an 11-point lead.
