Nearly 100 children from kindergarten to fifth grade are attending the morning-long school to learn more about the Bible and God’s Word. Andrew Knick, church pastor, said the theme of this year’s VBS is Agency D-3, which is a study designed for children to investigate God’s Word through Bible study, music and arts and crafts while enjoying Christian fellowship. Time is set aside for cracker snacks and recreation. In each cracker treat was a mission statement for children.

The parenting divide

first_imgNew York Knicks basketball sensation Jeremy Lin was part of a teaching moment during Pei-Chia Lan’s recent talk at the Radcliffe Gymnasium. Only the image of the famous Harvard graduate was projected on the screen at the front of the hall, but Lin’s picture helped to underscore a point that Lan made about the attitude of middle-class Chinese and Taiwanese immigrant parents toward their children’s participation in team sports: They aren’t big fans.The parents find daily practices too time-consuming, with a schedule that often conflicts with Chinese language school, said Lan. Many parents also dread the “burden of socializing with American parents on the soccer field.”Author of “Global Cinderellas: Migrant Domestics and Newly Rich Employers in Taiwan,” a detailed ethnographic study of migrant domestic labor in Taiwan, Lan has brought the same rigor to her Harvard research for her next book project. As a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, she is exploring how Taiwanese and Chinese immigrants negotiate cultural differences in child rearing and how they parent transnationally.Through extensive interviews in the United States and Taiwan, Lan has uncovered several telling trends that suggest how immigration, the changing nature of the global economy, and differences in class and social status affect attitudes toward parenting.In Taiwan, Lan found there has been a real shift in parenting styles, particularly in middle-class families, one that reflects the influence of Western models. Once more concerned with authority, discipline, and control, Taiwanese parents have adopted parenting strategies based on notions of cooperation, autonomy, and trust. They have also shifted from a strict focus on academic achievement, she said. Worried about their children’s well-being in “an overcompetitive education system, they put an increasing emphasis on linking learning and fun.”The reasons for the change include the industrial revolution in Taiwan, a time when children became “economically useless but emotionally priceless.” A reduced birth rate, the emergence of the nuclear family, democratic reforms of the 1990s, and rising Western influences also help “explain the changing notion of children in Taiwan.”Middle-class parents in Taiwan, Lan said, embrace Western parenting as “a superior cultural model to help them achieve cosmopolitanism in distinction from the lower class, with limited global exposure.”In the United States, middle-class immigrant parents interviewed by Lan revealed a strong interest in their child’s academic success. But that drive, she suggested, is often motivated by a sense that their child has to make up for a racial bias.While immigrant parents see their American neighbors as “loose parents,” they themselves “highlight the Chinese values of discipline and hard work as necessary tools for their children to survive in the context of racial inequality,” said Lan.She suggested that those parents have a dramatically different idea of assimilation. They make no effort to stop their children from speaking their native language, which was something that parents in the ’70s and ’80s discouraged in an effort to ensure their children were as American-sounding as possible. Today, middle-class parents encourage their children to speak Chinese, she said, in large part as a way to make them more marketable in a global economy where China is a rising force.Working-class immigrant parents, who see relocation to a new country as the ultimate move toward a better life, instead use a more “permissive” Western-based parenting model, said Lan, in the hope that “their children, living in an ethnic enclave, will achieve assimilation to a mainstream society.”last_img read more

Financial rules at risk of being ‘scuppered’ if Man City overturn European ban

first_imgManchester City fortunes have been transformed by owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s takeover of the club in 2008London, United Kingdom | AFP |  European football’s financial fair play rules risk being “scuppered” if Manchester City overturn their two-season ban from continental competition, according to a soccer analyst.UEFA announced the punishment on Friday and also imposed a fine of 30 million euros ($32 million, £25 million) on the English champions for what it said were City’s serious breaches of its FFP regime.City, however, wasted little time in responding by saying they would appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in the hope of securing an “impartial judgment”.Since the Sheikh Mansour takeover in 2008, which put the financial might of Abu Dhabi behind them, City have won 10 major trophies — including four Premier League titles.Yet the prize that has eluded them is the one the Abu Dhabi project most desires — the UEFA Champions League.The Chinese government have provided City with additional backing, as has US private equity firm Silver Lake.They are all set to ensure City has a no expense spared legal team that will challenge the validity of UEFA’s ruling.Should City succeed, the entire FFP system could collapse, according to Professor Simon Chadwick, director at the Centre for the Eurasian Sport Industry.– ‘Transnational power’ –“In essence UEFA has to try to win this because, if it doesn’t win or is undermined in any way, then its position on Financial Fair Play begins to unravel…FFP is scuppered,” Chadwick told Britain’s Press Association news agency.“However, they are not taking on Wigan, they are taking on Asian governments, US tech investors and some of the smartest, most-talented people in football.“It is transnational power versus localised governance.”Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was just one of several leading football figures stunned by the severity of the UEFA punishment. “It was a shock,” said Klopp, whose Champions League title holders are on well on course to succeed City as champions of England.“What they have done on the football pitch is exceptional. The rest, I don’t know,” added Klopp, speaking after a 1-0 win at bottom-of-the-table Norwich on Saturdy saw leaders Liverpool extend their advantage over second-placed City at the top of the Premier League to 25 points.UEFA say City have breached FFP rules that place restrictions on how much money a club can lose.Over a three-year period, clubs are not permitted to lose more than 30 million euros with exceptions for costs such as youth development and women’s teams.UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body found City ensured they did not fall foul of those restrictions by overstating their sponsorship revenue between 2012 and 2016.If City’s appeal fails, manager Pep Guardiola and several star players could leave the club.Guardiola’s contract runs until the end of the 2020/21 season, but the only major task left for the Catalan in Manchester is to make City European champions for the first time.City play Real Madrid in the last 16 of this season’s edition and if the campaign ends with the club yet to lift the Champions League trophy, Guardiola may bow out rather than compete for domestic honours alone.Similarly, players of the calibre of Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are unlikely to want to waste two of their peak years without the lure of Champions League football.

Calico The Clown Is Sticking Around, State Says

first_imgBy Joseph SapiaMIDDLETOWN – If the Shoppes at Middletown project comes to fruition, it appears the iconic Calico the Clown sign on Route 35 North will be saved.But the local landmark that has stood near the Kings Highway East since 1956 may have to move to a new home nearby.The slightly sinister-looking “Evil Clown” with the puzzling red-tipped finger has been working for years, advertising the Food Circus and Foodtown supermarkets, and today the Spirits Unlimited liquor store. At 30 feet tall, the steel sign once rotated, but now stands stationary.The state Department of Environmental Protection’s Historic Preservation Office and Division of Land Use Regulation are working with the developer on a plan to protect Calico on the development site, said DEP spokesman Larry Hajna.“The development company has stated verbally that they believe Calico is a New Jersey landmark and intend to keep it, but they need to move it to another location on the property,” said Hajna.The developer of the 118-acre proposed project – John Orrico/Village 35 LP of Purchase, New York – could not be reached for comment regarding Calico. But plans for the project on the ShoppesAtMiddletown.com site, posted by National Realty & Development Co., suggest Calico would be moved more toward Kanes Lane.The Shoppes is to be 338,455 square feet of commercial space on 52 acres of Route 35 between Kings Highway East, Carriage Drive and Kanes Lane. It is to include retail, restaurant and movie theater space.Orrico/Village 35 was to have made its second appearance before the township Planning Board Wednesday, June 15 – after this issue of the Two River Times went to press.On the remaining 66 acres, Toll Brothers of Horsham, Pennsylvania, wants to build the Oaks at Middletown, a 350-townhouse complex. The Oaks project, which would be built along the Carriage Drive end of the property, has not yet appeared before the Planning Board.The 118 acres is owned by Mountain Hill LLC, or the local Azzolina-Scaduto family. The family, which owns the Spirits Unlimited, along with Calico, could not be reached for comment.Leslie Worth Thomas of the Road Ad Sign Company designed Calico, according to Weird New Jersey magazine. Thomas also designed the Asbury Park icon, Tillie, the smiling face once gracing the city’s Palace arcade.To locals and non-locals, Calico is an icon.Margie Rafferty, 55, is a lifelong township resident, a wife, a mother of four, a technical writer – and perhaps Calico’s biggest preservation proponent.“When I was a little girl, sitting in back of the ’64 Chevy, going to the store, the thing (Calico) is revolving and I’m cowering in the backseat,” Rafferty said. “He’s been an affectionate symbol of the town I grew up in.“Most of us want to hold onto him for that idyllic sense,” said Rafferty, who lives in the Chapel Hill area. “Calico becomes symbolic of a simpler time.”A year ago, Rafferty filed paperwork with the state, starting a process to get Calico placed on the federal Register of Historic Places. She also created the “Save Calico, the ‘Evil Clown’ of Middletown, NJ” page on Facebook and the @calicoclown account on Twitter.“It’s kind of been an ongoing labor of love,” Rafferty said.Ana O’Connor, 44, who has lived in Middletown since her freshman year of high school, said she “absolutely” wants to see Calico preserved. But she is OK with moving it for preservation.“’The evil clown,’ everybody calls it,” O’Connor said. “It’s a symbol, it represents Middletown.”Lifelong township resident Gina Gizzi, 48, wants to see Calico preserved somewhere in Middletown.“I remember growing up and seeing it here,” Gizzi said. “It’s sort of, kind of known throughout the state. It’s like the Tillie of Middletown, at least for somebody who grew up here.”John Krilla, 64, remembers passing Calico as a child on his way to the Jersey Shore from his home in Perth Amboy. Seeing Calico was a gauge as to how far he had traveled.Krilla, who now lives in the township, would like to see Calico preserved.“Just the history of it,” Krilla said. “It’s just a landmark, a familiar site.”Luigi Fardini, 55, of Fort Lee was visiting the Shore recently. It was the first time he saw Calico, he said, but he was won over for preservation.“It’s a good idea,” Fardini said. “It’s a big clown, everybody notices.”The township Landmarks Commission has been involved with the matter.“The question was whether it was Register-eligible, for the state and national Registers,” said Mayor Gerard P. Scharfenberger. “It’s not a matter of support or not, that was the question out there.”The state said it appears to be eligible, Scharfenberger said.Scharfenberger said he did not want to comment extensively on a project before the Planning Board, so as not to have a conflict of interest.

Deep pockets eye Valley for loans, advice to business

A deep-pocketed backer has its eyes on the San Fernando Valley, aiming to bring money and jobs along with its interest. Genesis LA Economic Growth Corp., a private, nonprofit group based downtown, announced Thursday that it will partner with the Economic Alliance of the San Fernando Valley and the Valley Economic Development Corp. Genesis brings with it access to tens of millions of dollars in funds, with an aim to distribute at least $5 million within the next two years. Targeting developers planning difficult-to-finance projects, the partnership will look to provide loans, offer business counseling and connect interested parties. “It’s harder in the Valley,” said Brad Rosenberg, president and chief executive officer of Genesis. “The infrastructure hasn’t been set up here, because people have always focused on the denser areas of poverty like South L.A. But there’s a lot of businesses that need help here, lots of businesses moving out. We hope we can change that.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant With job cuts or relocations announced at Washington Mutual, Ronco Corp. and Superior Industries International Inc. in the Valley just in recent weeks, the groups will have plenty of issues to deal with.

Though Rosenberg said the group does not keep figures on the percentage of loan requests that it ultimately approves, he said he aspires to offer some service to each business that approaches Genesis, whether it’s in the form of money, advice or referrals. Bruce Ackerman, president and CEO of the Economic Alliance, welcomed the partnership, saying it would help bring employment to under-represented areas. “Our focus is jobs, jobs, jobs,” he said. “Whatever it takes to keep businesses here, we want to do it.” Brent Hopkins, (818) 713-3738 last_img read more

Gallery: Limpopo, gateway to the north

first_imgHome to the growing city of Polokwane, Limpopo is known as the “gateway to the great north”. It is the perfect stepping stone to the wonders of the Kruger National Park. A notable Limpopo attraction is the Mapungubwe Unesco World Heritage site, where the remains of a thriving African kingdom offer insights into a rich cultural heritage that has stood the test of time.The giant baobab tree at Mapungubwe.

4 Tips for Comparing and Evaluating Equipment Before Purchase

first_imgRelated Posts Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Frank is a freelance journalist who has worked in various editorial capacities for over 10 years. He covers trends in technology as they relate to business. center_img How OKR’s Completely Transformed Our Culture Purchasing a new piece of equipment for your business can be a difficult process filled with lots of different steps and friction. However, this isn’t the time to sit back and let someone else take charge. A correct purchase will push your business forward, while an incorrect one could hold you back for years to come.4 Equipment Buying Tips to ConsiderGood execution is the difference between having a good idea and experiencing positive results. In business terms, the right piece of equipment — as well as the correct processes — typically plays a major role in good execution. The only problem is that most businesses don’t think about the significance equipment plays until it’s too late to make a change.If you’re currently considering buying a new piece of equipment — whether as an upgrade or replacement — it’s imperative that you understand the significance of your decision. A thorough buying process in which you meticulously vet every aspect and detail will reward you with better results on the back end.Here are a few specific tips and suggestions:1. Compare Multiple OptionsThis first suggestion is sort of common sense, but it’s one many businesses fail to heed when they get thrown into situations where they need a new piece of equipment right away.At a very minimum, you should consider two different options. Preferably, your list should include at least three. When you compare three options, this gives you a better idea of what exists in the market, what the going rate is and what you can expect with your purchase.2. Look at the VendorIt’s vital that you carefully consider the vendor when purchasing a piece of equipment. Even if the equipment is the same from vendor to vendor, there are a number of pros and cons associated with working with different companies.Take industrial manipulators (the kind used in material handling) as an example. You can purchase industrial manipulators from a variety of vendors, but they don’t all have the same processes and requirements in place. Certain vendors — like Dalmec — must adhere to strict safety standards, while vendors from other nations lack regulations and standards. Working with a company in the former category could save you a lot of trouble and heartache.3. Consider Financing OptionsHow you purchase a piece of equipment for your business is sometimes just as important as what you buy. There are a different financing options, including:Purchasing (cash). When you buy a piece of equipment outright, you don’t have to spend additional money on interest payments. Plus, you get to amortize the cost over the lifespan of the equipment.Financing (loan). Financing is great because it allows you to own a piece of equipment without having to fork over all of the money at once. Certain packages even let you finance the cost of installation, training and transportation.Leasing. Need the equipment, but don’t want to make a long-term investment? Leasing allows you to gain access to the equipment and then reconsider your options at the end of the agreement.Renting. Only need a piece of equipment for an isolated period of time? Renting is a nice option for businesses that have a one-off project or short-term need.4. Look at Long-Term Cost AnalysisAn equipment purchase might make sense right now, but what are the long-term effects? Before making a significant investment or purchase, always conduct a long-term cost analysis. (You may need to hire a consultant to help with this.)Adding It All UpIt’s important to point out that there isn’t always one piece of equipment that’s perfect for your company. In many cases, there are two or three different options that could potentially work. The key is to do your due diligence and avoid getting mixed up with the ones that are clearly wrong.In the end, a detailed vetting process will give you the best chance of succeeding in the execution phase of your business. It won’t guarantee results — but it will pave the way for opportunity. Frank Landmanlast_img read more
