St. Louis Catholic School earns ‘STEM’ grant

first_imgPictured from left to right: Landon Beiser, Samuel Rodriguez, Parker Smith and Sophie Ramey .Batesville, In. — St. Louis Catholic School recently received grants from Shopco and the Southeastern Indiana REMC to purchase STEM materials for the primary classrooms.Because our globally competitive economy demands workers skilled in science, technology, engineering, and math. Today’s children are tomorrow’s workforce and it is important to start fostering these skills in young children. After attending a conference at the University of Indianapolis, which stressed the importance of STEM in the classroom, I knew it was important to bring STEM to St. Louis Catholic School to foster that love of learning.Using the grant money from Shopco and REMC, teachers were able to purchase the following materials: Incubators for the Kindergarten Chick Embryology Program,  iPads to use with the Osmo kits, Bee Bots and mats, Cubetto Kits, Ozobots, Engineering and Design Playground kits, and Dash Robots. Many of the resources allow students to learn and experience the basics of computer programming through hands-on play;  experience the life cycle of a chick; learn robotics fundamentals; plan, design, and build their own playground; use sequencing and problem-solving skills; directionality and planning, and customize and code with colors.  All of these wonderful resources encourage students to build critical thinking and communication while using creativity and collaboration skills. We are so grateful for the generous donations from Shopco and the Southeastern Indiana REMC who helped turn our dream into a reality.last_img read more

Controversial McConnell Tract Hearing Moved to Oct. 30

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – As trick-or-treat time approaches some residents involved in a fight to ensure bayfront access are bracing for a surprise.An anticipated Sept. 27 Planning Board hearing for an applicant seeking to build three dozen homes on the 7-acre McConnell tract along the Sandy Hook Bay has been rescheduled to Oct. 30 at the Atlantic Highlands Elementary School.The adjournment was granted so the applicant – Denholtz Custom Homes (DCH) – can finish revising concept plans to reflect comments and address concerns expressed by residents and the Planning Board at a previous hearing.In the organization’s initial project plans, DCH set aside nearly a quarter of the tract for public use, including the entire waterfront portion of the parcel.Improvements to this approximately 1.5 acres of land included the reconstruction of the property’s bulkhead and the installation of a 10-foot-wide boardwalk with a 100-foot-long walkway area along the front of the plot.In an Aug. 23 interview with The Two River Times, DCH and Denholtz Associates CEO Steven Denholtz said the cost of improvements to the public portion of this proposed project would total about $1 million, a cost his company would completely absorb.Borough resident Benson Chiles, who fronts the local opposition group Neighbors for Waterfront Preservation (NFWP), said he and his counterparts fear the revisions may reflect a comment made by civil engineer James Kennedy of Kennedy Consulting Engineers in Red Bank.During that Sept. 27 meeting the applicant sought 11 variances for 11 of the 21 proposed homes that did not meet the borough’s lot-shape circle requirement. However, Kennedy said DCH could provide a totally compliant subdivision plan within the zone for just 17 homes, but in doing so would need to build upon the 1.5 acres of waterfront property set aside for the public as open space.“The reason they’re potentially proposing a development with fewer homes on it is because they’re trying to squeeze too many homes on the property in the first place,” said Chiles, a strategic consultant for conservation organizations who specializes in environmental policy development.“The fact is that land is not buildable and they’re playing hardball with it. They’re trying to use it as a bargaining chip and it felt so obvious when (Kennedy) made that comment at the hearing,” Chiles added.Though DCH refused to comment on the situation or shed light on what the revisions will entail, Denholtz did issue a statement to The Two River Times stating, “We appreciate the feedback we received from the board and members of the local community at August’s planning board meeting.”“With these insights in mind, we are in the process of making revisions to our plan and we look forward to a continued dialogue with Atlantic Highlands at the next meeting to ensure that our final project reflects the wishes and character of the surrounding community.”Some of the dialogue presented at the previous hearing focused on two particular features of the development, including the retaining wall proposed to separate the development from the nearby public beach and Sandy Hook Bay Catamaran Club near the western portion of the parcel, and an on-site sewage pump station, which is also located on the western part of the plot.During the hearing Kennedy could not provide visual renderings of what these proposed items would look like, nor could he say what construction materials or style would be used to build the retaining wall.Residents raised further concerns about the unpredictable soil erosion and erosion of beachfront that could occur near these features.Chiles said the sewage pump house is what’s most concerning.“Aside from its location in a flood zone, which presents a risk to its long-term liability, people are concerned about possible smells emitting from it, given its location to a public beach. It’d be a shame if there were any odors from that station.”Chiles and NFWP hope to resolve these issues and more at the Oct. 30 hearing continuance.This article was first published in the Oct. 11 – Oct. 17, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Nothing going right for Green and White as Leafs drop seventh straight game

first_imgSure it’s nice that the calendar only reads November on the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season.But at some point, the Nelson Leafs had better start turning around their season.The Green and White lost for the seventh straight time Sunday in Spokane, dropping a 4-1 KIJHL decision to the Braves in action in the Lilac City.Like many of the previous six losses, the Leafs started strong.Sunday, the same story unfolded as Nelson outshot the Braves 17-9 in the first period but failed to score. Second period, again the Leafs held the advantage on the shot counter, this time by an 18-8 margin. And the Canadian visitors even took the lead when Ryan Piva notched his eighth marker of the season.However, before the end of the period Spokane’s Carter Jones tied the game.Jones then scored this second of the game midway through the third period. Mark Pretorius increased the lead to 3-1 just over a minute later before Paxton Malone scored with one second left in the game to complete the scoring.Nelson outshot the Braves 49-32 in the game making a winner out of netminder J.J. Pichette.Jason Sandhu took the loss for Nelson.Nelson drops to 8-11-0-0-2, fourth in the Murdoch Division and 14 points behind front running Beaver Valley Nitehawks. The Hawks continue to soar in the KIJJHL, winners of 12 straight games and tied for top spot in the league with Creston Valley Thunder Cats — each with 32 points.Nelson remains on the road travelling to the East Kootenay for games against Golden Rockets Friday and Columbia Valley Rockies Saturday.On the positive front, both Eddie Mountain teams are also struggling in the standings.But that doesn’t mean much for a team that was talked up as being a threat to take over the Murdoch Division of the KIJHL after a disastrous 2015-16 season of a year ago.last_img read more

SEANAD NOMINEE McNULTY STANDS DOWN FROM IMMA BOARD

first_imgFine Gael’s Seanad nominee John McNulty has announced he is stepping down from the IMMA board with immediate effect.Kilcar man and FG Seanad candidate John McNulty.The Kilcar man issued a brief statement saying he looks forward to continuing his election campaign for a seat in the Seanad.Mr McNulty was appointed to the board of the Irish Museum of Modern Art six days before he launched his bid for the Seanad on the Cultural and Educational Panel. The move was widely criticised by political opponents as an attempt to ‘qualify’ him for the Seanad role. The Arts Minister, fellow FG member Heather Humphreys, earlier refused to comment on whether she knew McNulty was being nominated for the Seanad when she appointed him to the IMMA board.Humphreys said she had no role in his Seanad bid.The move has sparked tensions with Labour – with Tánaiste Joan Burton refusing to say whether her party will back McNulty in next month’s by-election.In his statement, Mc Nulty said: “I am stepping down from the IMMA board with immediate effect, in accordance with IMMA’s internal rules, which preclude me from being a board member and contesting an election at the same time. “I will continue to be a members of IMMA, and an active supporter of their work.

Heart mended, Weber ready for Midmar Mile

first_img4 February 2014 Michelle Weber will be back to spearhead South Africa’s challenge in the aQuelle Midmar Mile this coming weekend after a third place finish last year. However, just being part of the event will be a blessing for the former youth world champion after a challenging 2013. In finishing third last year, she had followed American star Ashley Twichell and seven-time champion Keri-anne Payne across the finishing line and forced Hungarian superstar Katinka Hosszu, who went on to win the 200m and 400m individual medley at the World Championships in Barcelona, into fourth place. After that strong showing, Weber was on course for another impressive year and hoping to make a mark in Barcelona a year after winning the first ever World Youth Championships over five kilometres in Canada in 2012. However, what should have been one of the highlights of her life turned out to be a frightening experience.‘I had a heart problem’ Recalling what happened at the official press launch for the Midmar Mile in Pietermaritzburg late last week, she told SAinfo : “During the open water World Championships in Barcelona, I had a heart problem, where my heart was beating 240- plus beats per minute. “It was scary. At first, I was terrified. I thought I would have to stop swimming, but luckily I got to see a cardiologist just in time; I was really relieved.” Weber’s problem was caused by adrenaline, “so when I became excited or when I had a race my heart rate would go up and then I would stop and I just couldn’t carry on,” she explained.‘It’s all back to normal’ It was just two weeks after the World Championships that she underwent a heart procedure. “Most people have two major pathways to their heart. I had an extra one, so they just burnt that off. Now it’s all back to normal and I am back to training,” Weber said. In fact, she was back in the water after a break of only four weeks. Assessing her current form, she said: “My fitness is getting a lot better. I’m not in peak form, but I’m really happy where I am at the moment. “I think I am in good enough form to compete for a place in the top five. I’m just going to try my best. I always go to Midmar to have fun. That’s the main thing.”‘I was so, so happy’ Looking back on her showing in 2013’s Midmar Mile, Weber said: “Last year, I was so excited, even shocked after the race. I was so, so happy.” Now, the former two-time girls’ 13-and-under champion at the world’s largest open water swimming event, will have another opportunity to challenge some of the world’s best open water swimmers again, and no matter where she finishes, the fact that Michelle Weber will be in the race will be a victory in itself. The aQuelle Midmar Mile takes place on 8 and 9 February. A significant fund-raiser for charities, it is an event for everyone and participants include swimmers with multiple disabilities through to Olympic champions and world record holders.last_img read more

How Connected Cars Might Actually Make Driving Better

first_imgRelated Posts Why Driving StinksMaciej Kranz, VP and GM of Cisco’s Connected Industries Group, laid out some of the grim statistics plaguing the world yet-to-be-connected cars:Between 11% and 13% of commuting time is wasted in urban traffic congestion, for a total of 90 billion hours. (It just seems like of half of that is on the 101 Freeway between San Francisco and San Jose.) Some 7% to 12% of urban congestion is caused by people looking for parking. (It just seems like all of that comes in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood.) Between 10% and 17% of of urban fuel is wasted at stoplights when there is no crosstraffic. Eighty percent of accidents (6.3 million) are caused by driver distraction.“The good news,” Kranz said, “is that we can actually lower all of these numbers quite dramatically.” How Connected Cars Make Driving BetterFor congestion, that means traffic management and optimization of road networks. For parking issues, connected cars can link apps identifying the closest, most affordable available parking spaces to the vehicle’s navigation. And the vehicles can intelligently adjust driving speeds to boost fuel efficiency.Intelligent stoplights, for example, would know if there were 10 cars waiting in one direction but only 1 in the other, and adjust light timing to keep traffic moving. Along straight routes, Kranz said, they can build “green waves” of traffic signals to keep lanes flowing efficiently.There’s also the idea that if one car knows what other vehicles. traffic lights and other road infrastructure are doing, they can all adjust more efficiently. For examply, if your car knows that the car in front is about to make a turn or start braking, it can begin reacting even before it actually senses the action.Cisco estimates this could lead to 7.5% less time wasted in traffic congestion and 4% lower costs for vehicle fuel, repairs and insurance. The benefits are particularly obvious in fleet settings, Kranz said. For example, a company with 10,000 delivery trucks would find it very valuable to be able to use connected technology to schedule preventive maintenance.As for preventing accidents, vehicle-to-vehicle communications could enable a connected car to alert you if you get too close to the vehicle in front of you. If you don’t respond, Kranz said, “at some point the car will make a decision to hit the brakes and avoid the accident.”Cisco estimatd 8% fewer accidents, 10% lower road costs and a 3% drop in carbon dioxide emissions. Not Just Connecting The Car, But Also All Its PartsThe key to making all this happen, Kranz said, is not just connecting the car to the Internet, but also connecting together all of the various siloed subsystems in the car. When you connect a car to the Net, he said, “good things happen. More good things happen when you connect all of the systems,” including telematics, diagnostics and driver assistance systems. Looked at this way, a self-driving car is just an advanced application of a connected car, taking over a higher-than usual proportion of the required tasks.Cisco is pushing DSRC (Dedicated Short-Range Communications) technology to tie together the vehicle’s various systems with the wider Internet.Heck, if you ask me, though, even if connected cars just help me find a parking space on a Saturday night, all the development effort is totally worth it.Lead image courtesy of Shutterstock.

The hype about how they’re going to change the driving and passenger experience is accelerating faster than Danica Patrick coming out of a turn at a NASCAR race.But most of the promises I’ve heard so far center around relatively prosaic things like better entertainment systems and integrated navigation. I like a great car stereo as much as anyone, but that just doesn’t seem particularly revolutionary to me.(See also Cars & The Internet Get Together At SXSW)So I was looking forward to the connected car presentation at the Cisco Editors Conference in San Jose, Calif., on Wednesday.
