Mayor’s Update: January 26

first_imgMayor Jay Gillian Dear Friends,The city administration presented a proposed five-year capital plan to City Council last night. The presentation lays out a tentative schedule for improvements to roads, drainage, the beach, bay, boardwalk, public buildings, open space, recreational facilities and more. I encourage everybody to take a look at the plan. A copy of the presentation and related documents are available at www.ocnj.us/projects.Council will consider our proposal and listen to feedback before voting on accepting it next month. The plan commits more than $100 million to tackling long-overdue projects in every part of the island. It’s a lot of money, but I’m confident that the plan is responsible. Our AA bond rating, low interest rates and our growing ratable base make this an ideal time to invest in these infrastructure improvements. Most importantly, the work will contribute to the quality of life we’ve all come to expect in Ocean City.I want to let everybody know that the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife will be on the Ocean City Municipal Golf Course next week as part of a study on the migration patterns of the Atlantic brant. Their research will involve trapping and tagging the waterfowl with transmitters, but none of the birds will be harmed.Finally, I ask you all to vote for Ocean City in Coastal Living magazine’s “America’s Happiest Seaside Towns” contest. These types of online polls are increasingly popular with organizations and publications, and they remain a great source of publicity for our town and its businesses. Please take a few seconds to vote at www.coastalliving.com/happytowns2018 .I hope you all have a great weekend.Warm regards,Jay A. GillianMayorlast_img read more

Improve seeks NVQ and corporate training links

first_imgImprove, the food and drink sector skills council, wants to see employers’ own training programmes recognised as part of a new framework governing vocational qualifications across the industry.It is currently negotiating with employers and training provi-ders on ways to update in-house schemes to make them the basis for National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) and Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs).The move follows consultation from Improve with employers on how to make NVQs and SVQs more flexible and more relevant to the workplace. It would mean employers’ own tailor-made in-house training programmes could be used as a basis for universally-recognised qualifications, with government funding on offer for the training they provide.At present, 80% of training within the food and drinks sector occurs in-house, but only 15% leads to an externally accredited qualification. Jack Matthews, chief executive of Improve, said: “In the food and drink industry we have had a rather chaotic situation where dissatisfaction with the structure of vocational qualifications has led to different employers running different training courses in isolation from one another. This has contributed to a perceived shortage of skills that can transfer from job to job, and in some cases has posed a barrier to career progression for employees.”last_img read more

Warren Haynes Leads Jerry Garcia Birthday Celebration At Red Rocks [Video/Setlist]

first_imgOn what would have been Jerry Garcia’s 74th birthday, it was guitarist Warren Haynes who had the unique role of throwing the late Grateful Dead member a birthday party for the ages. Haynes, who has performed with the living members of the Grateful Dead on many occasions, has been touring a Symphonic Tribute to the late great Garcia. Last night, Haynes brought that concept to Red Rocks Amphitheatre, with some added significance for the momentous occasion.Not only is Red Rocks itself celebrating 75 years of existence, but the venue also hosted the Dead for numerous performances during their career. The parallels continued, as Haynes made history by playing Garcia’s guitar Tiger publicly, for the first time since the Grateful Dead’s final performance in 1995. Of course, the majority of the Dead’s Red Rocks performances were during the period when Tiger was used predominantly, from 1979-1989. Adding to the occasion was the presence of Melvin Seals, a member of Jerry Garcia’s band and another torch bearing troubadour in the Grateful Dead community. Seals has performed with JGB for many years since Garcia’s passing, and even recently made his Phil Lesh & Friends debut earlier this year. Naturally, Haynes was playing guitar with the band for those performances at the Capitol Theatre.The Red Rocks performance featured three full sets of music, including two with the Colorado Symphony and a special third set with just the core band members. Haynes has assembled a top notch lineup for these tributes, including drummer Jeff Sipe, bassist Lincoln Schleifer, and vocalists Jasmine Muhammad and Jacklyn LaBranch. The band opened with a towering “Dark Star” instrumental and worked through two sets and an encore with the Symphony, letting loose on an array of Grateful Dead songs. The third and final set was more of a JGB tribute, with Melvin Seals helping to lead the charge. The band also welcomed Dave Bruzza and Anders Beck of Greensky Bluegrass for the finale, a charged two-song punch of “Don’t Let Go” and “Deal.”You can watch highlights from the performance below, courtesy of Jerry Garcia on Facebook on YouTube user Jeremiah Rogers. The full setlist can also be seen at the bottom of the article, as reported by Philzone member gilman.

Playing on our instincts

first_imgResearchers have long known that lab animals’ behavior can be manipulated by artificially stimulating their natural instincts. Over-stimulating animals can provoke such extreme responses that they end up preferring artificial objects to the natural ones for which the instincts were designed.Humans living in modern society are something like those lab animals, a Harvard psychology professor says. Like them, our innate instincts are overstimulated by unnatural products, as well as by advertising and images. And, like them, we respond almost unconsciously: reaching for more food, Web-surfing for porn, dumping time and money on “cute” toys, sitting for hours in front of televisions, and sending troops to fight a dehumanized “them.”The difference between lab animals and us, however, is that overstimulation for animals isn’t present in nature. It can really only be found in the laboratory. If an animal escapes to its natural environment, it will return to natural stimuli and responses. For people, however, because we live in an artificial world of our own making, escaping those stimuli is not so easy.But Deirdre Barrett, assistant clinical professor of psychology in Harvard Medical School’s Psychiatry Department, says that doesn’t mean there’s no hope for us.Barrett, author of the new book “Supernormal Stimuli: How Primal Urges Overran Their Evolutionary Purpose,” says the first step is to understand what’s happening to us. Instincts and urges honed for hundreds of thousands of years to keep us alive in a world of scarcity are being subverted in the modern era of plenty. People are bombarded by food that they crave, tempted by seductive images, and urged to buy products designed to appeal to specific wants, regardless of need.In her book, Barrett examines the history of research into supernormal stimuli, describing early behavioral experiments on birds and fish. In one, birds whose eggs were lightly speckled fell off as they tried to incubate ridiculously large, boldly polka-dotted fakes. In another, red-bellied male fish fought off artificial red-painted lures even when they didn’t look much like fish.These outsized prods to normal instincts are called “supernormal stimuli,” and Barrett believes they’re present in our world today, sometimes quite intentionally, prodding us to buy and consume and do. It’s an easy sell, in many cases, because the stimuli give us a push to do things we’re already inclined toward.Pornography, she said, subverts instincts intended for mating with people. Stuffed animals, dolls, and cartoon characters manipulate people’s preprogrammed affinity for childlike “cuteness.” She also looks at obesity, war, business, television, and even intellectual pursuits.Though supernormal stimuli are not universally related to problems, Barrett said many of the episodes in her book do fall into that category. Understanding ourselves and the reasons we feel as we do, Barrett said, is the first step in overriding our instincts, in our being able to resist the siren song of the Big Mac.She also recommended new government regulation to help limit supernormal stimuli, particularly in areas where public health may be at risk, and to “put normal back into our lives.” It might be easier to eat healthier foods, she said, if we lived in a food environment where we weren’t blasted by ads for “supernormal foods.”last_img read more

Super Eagles goalie Uzoho joins Apoel FC

first_imgSuper Eagles goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho, has been transferred to Apoel FC. No details on the amount of the operation, but the goaltender signed a three-year deal with the Cypriot club. Uzoho was on loan from Deportivo de La Coruña, as a goalkeeper. After making his debut for the club, concerns were raised about his health certificate. As a result, Anorthosis Famagusta were deducted 9 points, which they appealed. The club’s deduction appeal was rejected, although Uzoho’s appeal against his personal penalty of a one-match ban and €1,000 fine was successful. In July 2019 he returned on loan to Cyprus, this time with Omonia. He said he hoped his return to the country would be positive. Uzoho represented Nigeria under-17s at the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup. Aged only 14, he was an immediate backup to Dele Alampasu. In October 2017 Uzoho received his first call-up to the Nigerian senior squad. He made his full international debut on 14 November, replacing Daniel Akpeyi in a 4–2 friendly win against Argentina. read also:Uzoho wants move to bigger European club He was named in Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. By that time he was considered Nigeria’s first-choice goalkeeper. He withdrew from the national squad in November 2018 due to injury. He was a squad member at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.  Uzoho was in goal for Nigeria in the 3rd place match against Tunisia. In October 2019 he suffered a ligament injury in a friendly match against Brazil and underwent surgery in November 2010.

In 2016, after impressing on a tournament in Barcelona, he joined Deportivo de La Coruña’s Juvenil squad. Age rules meant that Uzoho could only become available to sign a contract with Dépor in January 2017; shortly after signing his contract, he started to train with the first team. Promoted to the reserve team ahead of the 2017–18 season, he made his senior debut on 10 September by starting in a 3–0 Segunda División B home win against Real Madrid Castilla. Uzoho made his first-team – and La Liga – debut on 15 October 2017, starting in a 0–0 away draw against SD Eibar. At the age of 18 years and 352 days, he became the youngest ever foreign goalkeeper to debut in La Liga, and the second-youngest player to appear in the league during the campaign, only behind Real Madrid’s Achraf Hakimi. On 24 August 2018, Uzoho renewed his contract for three seasons and was immediately loaned to the Segunda División side Elche CF for one year. In February 2019 he moved on loan to Cypriot club Anorthosis Famagusta, in the search for more first-team football in the run-up to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.last_img read more
