Underwood Sailors were joined by a group of Chilean sailors, and together they spent time repainting the stone walls outside the home’s buildings, as well as handrails for several sets of concrete steps.“One of my favorite parts of today happened while I was painting, and one of the kids came over and just started helping out and trying to interact with me and talk to me,” said Engineman 3rd Class (SW) Scottie Morris. “I only understood a little bit [because of the language barrier], but it was nice seeing the smile on his face because he was able to help.”After the Sailors finished painting outside, they headed inside one of the buildings to present the children with boxes of donations from Project Handclasp.The donations included a box of hygiene items, a box of general medical supplies, and five boxes of stuffed animals.“Their children’s reaction to the Sailors has been very receptive,” said Negron. “They’ve just been very cheerful and happy with smiling faces, trying to speak with us to improve their English. We definitely left a fingerprint on their hearts and minds. I don’t think they’ll ever forget us and vice versa.”Underwood is deployed to Central and South America, and the Caribbean in support of Southern Seas 2012.U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command and U.S. 4th Fleet (COMUSNAVSO/C4F) support USSOUTHCOM joint and combined full-spectrum military operations by providing principally sea-based, forward presence to ensure freedom of maneuver in the maritime domain, to foster and sustain cooperative relationships with international partners and to fully exploit the sea as maneuver space in order to enhance regional security and promote peace, stability, and prosperity in the Caribbean, Central and South American regions.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, June 11, 2012 June 11, 2012 Back to overview,Home naval-today Sailors Assigned to USS Underwood Visit Childern’s Home in Valparaiso, Chile Training & Education View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Valparaisolast_img read more

“Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” is funny and fun…

first_imgHOBOKEN – Mile Square Theatre’s latest play is very funny. It’s also touching and insightful, revealing, heart-warming and fun. But mostly, it’s funny.“Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike,” running Wednesdays through Sundays until Oct. 7, is Mile Square Theatre’s first production of the fall season, and it’s a very welcome escape from, well, whatever it is from which you need to escape: politics, money, kids, ennui… Actually, there is some ennui expressed on stage, but it gets blown away pretty quick.Montclair native Christopher Durang won the 2013 Best Play Tony Award for writing the script as well as the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play. In the hands of Mile Square Theatre’s stellar talent both on stage and behind the scenes, it lives up to, and exceeds, even the highest expectations.“Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike”is a gripping, fast paced, silly yet thoughtful comedy about life, family, aging, showbiz, and self-examination. It provides a peek into the lives of a yet another dysfunctional family, this one from Bucks Country, Pa.Vanya (Chris O’Connor) and his adopted sister Sonia (Barbara Pitts) quip about how they seem to have wasted their lives caring for their parents. Their sister Masha (Annie McAdams), an international movie star, stops by to show them what she thinks they’ve been missing, and to show off her latest far-too-young boy toy, Spike (Jonah Robinson). Each actor has his or her own moments of brilliance on stage as well as moments expertly supporting the brilliance of others. The family’s cleaning lady, Cassandra (Andrea Bellamore), steals every scene she enters, and while family steals it right back, their neighbor Nina (Anne Hammond) pops in to remind us that, oh yes, there are sane, kind and grounded people in the world, too.If the names in the title of “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” ring a bell, that’s because they’re drawn from characters of the plays of Anton Chekov. (Well, maybe not Spike, who seems to be the personification of the short-live bro TV network by the same name). While a handful of winks are tossed in for those who know a thing or two about Chekov’s work – there are a couple references to a cherry orchard, for instance – you don’t need to know a thing about any theatre except the one on stage in order to enjoy every moment of this silly and moving production. It’s like going to “Hamilton” without having heard the soundtrack: You’re coming out a changed person, whether you know what you’re getting into or not.The set (Matthew Fick), costumes (Peter Fogel), bit of choreography (Sarah Webber Gallo) – no matter your orientation, you will, ahem, “feel something,” during the reverse striptease – and, of course direction (Mark Cirnigliaro) are top notch, which is something we’ve come to expect from Mile Square Theatre. They’ve set their own bar fairly high.Comedy is hard. An ensemble comedy is harder still. An ensemble comedy playing off the subtleties of life, family, regret, promise and potential should be downright impossible. Mile Square Theatre makes it looks easy.Go now and witness how easy it is to feel good, be inspired, reflect and laugh at “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike”.Presented by Mile Square Theatre, 1400 Clinton St., Hoboken, “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” will run from Sept. 12 through Oct. 7, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 3 p.m. Tickets are available at www.milesquaretheatre.org, or by calling (201) 683-7014.Tickets are $30-40 • $18 students and seniors. – Jeff Kreisler ×last_img read more

How Music & Dance Affect Opposite Neurological Changes In the Brain

first_imgThere are distinct changes in sensory and motor pathways between the brains of dancers and musicians. Though, the effects on the brain between these creative activities are far from similar. According to research published in the journal NeuroImage, the changes in white matter are completely opposite to each other. While cultural practices often include dance and music together, mostly through desire, the importance of these traditions extend far beyond artistic measures.Researchers from the International Laboratory for Brain, Music, and Sound Research in Montreal, Canada recently set out to compare and contrast the neurological changes within the brain that music and dance produce.Previous studies have confirmed that practicing music at an early age can pave changes in the pathways of the brain, building the brain like a muscle and strengthening the associated functions of each lobe. A finding from 2014 concluded that the most evident changes that musical training makes in the brain are between the two hemispheres (the corpus callosum). This area of the brain facilitates interhemispheric communication and is the largest area of white matter in the brain. Responsible for the distribution of action potentials, and acting as the coordinating center between different brain regions, this area of the brain actively affects learning and overall brain functions. So, it’s no wonder that parents have had their children practicing an instrument early on in life. Strengthening the corpus callosum is very important.While this has been said about music for some time now, dance has been less acknowledged as a brain-stimulating activity. While both skills involve intense training and focus, dance focuses on integrating visual, auditory, and motor coordination; whereas playing music mostly concentrates on auditory and motor information.Researchers used an advanced imaging technique called “diffusion tensor imaging” to explore the white matter structure of musicians, dancers, and brains that had training in neither activity. According to lead author Chiara Giacosa, researchers “found that dancers and musicians differed in many white matter regions, including sensory and motor pathways, both at the primary and higher cognitive levels of processing.”They found that the pathways most affected by training were in the bundles of fibers that link the sensory and motor regions of the brains, and the fibers of the corpus callosum that run between the hemispheres. For dancers, these sets of connections were more diffuse and broad, while musicians had the same connections, but were stronger, less diffuse, and showed more coherence in fiber bundles.“This suggests that dance and music training affect the brain in opposite directions, increasing global connectivity and crossing of fibers in dance training, and strengthening specific pathways in music training,” explains Giacosa.The broadness in the neural cortex might be explained by the dancer’s use of their whole body, which may encourage fibers to cross over and increase in size. Since musicians tend to focus their training on particular body parts (fingers, mouth), there will be smaller cortical representations in the brain.It’s also interesting to note that dancers and musicians differ exponentially when compared to the untrained control subjects. The reasons for this aren’t acutely identifiable, but could be for a number of reasons. Giacosa explains, “[…] our samples of dancers and musicians were specifically selected to be pure groups of experts, which makes it easier to differentiate between them.” Also, the group of untrained subjects also exhibited diversity in their range of interests and life experiences. More research is needed to articulate the difference in connections between musicians, dancers, non-musicians, and non-dancers.This particular research could, and should, be continued. The results, while interesting in face value, might also have purpose in education and rehabilitation for the strengthening of brain activity.According to senior author Professor Virginia Penhune, “Understanding how dance and music training differently affect brain networks will allow us to selectively use them to enhance their functioning or compensate for difficulties and diseases that involve those specific brain networks.”So far, dance and music therapy is under investigation for its potential use in the treatments of Parkinson’s and autism. Of course, we hope the research is continued and applied to saving people from these various diseases.We also think you should “Let all the children boogie.”[via Medical News Today]last_img read more

University Honor Code outlines academic disciplinary procedures

first_imgNotre Dame’s Undergraduate Student Academic Code of Honor Handbook has 9,213 words. It spans 25 pages.The document, to an extent, is a guiding force in determining the current fates of the five Irish football players who have been withheld from practice and competition this season.Mary McGraw | The Observer Irish junior cornerback KeiVarae Russell, senior receiver DaVaris Daniels, senior defensive end Ishaq Williams, graduate student linebacker Kendall Moore and senior safety Eilar Hardy have been held out of practice and competition during the probe into “suspected academic dishonesty.”Notre Dame announced its investigation Aug. 15. The University said “evidence that students had submitted papers and homework that had been written for them by others” was initially suspected at the end of the summer session and referred to the compliance office in athletics July 29. Notre Dame said the Office of General Counsel then initiated “an immediate investigation.”Irish head coach Brian Kelly said Thursday evening he expects hearings to be wrapped up within the next 24 hours.In an attempt to better understand the ongoing process that has spanned — at least publicly — nearly 50 days, The Observer has highlighted certain aspects of the Honor Code.In an attempt to understand some notably vague areas of the Honor Code, The Observer reached out to University President Fr. John Jenkins and the Rev. Hugh Page Jr., Co-Chair of the University Code of Honor Committee, but they each separately declined interview requests.Who?The University Code of Honor Committee consists of 12 members — six students and six faculty members. Of the students, there is one representative each from the Colleges of Business, Engineering and Science and two students from either the College of Arts and Letters or the School of Architecture. There is also one student Co-Chair member.Colleges or schools may set up Honesty Committees at either the departmental or college level, and students must constitute the majority of a given committee’s members. The chair of a department or dean of a college requests students to “participate in investigating and determining responsibility” in Honor Code cases by serving on Honesty Committees.The department chair or college dean bears the responsibility for “publicizing the names of committee members,” either by posting them in the offices or on web sites.Students or faculty members reporting potential violations are instructed to submit reports “to the Honesty Committee of the department or college offering the course [in which the potential violation occurred].”The Honor Code does not stipulate which Honesty Committee should hear case(s) regarding potential violations that may have occurred in multiple courses spanning different departments or colleges.According to Notre Dame’s website, Russell is in the Mendoza College of Business, while Daniels, Williams and Hardy are in the College of Arts and Letters. Moore, who is currently enrolled in graduate courses, graduated in May from the College of Arts and Letters.When?The Honor Code does not stipulate in what time frame students should be notified of “guilty” decisions.The Honor Code states, “if the committee decides a student is responsible for a major or minor offense and assigns a penalty, the chair of the Honesty Committee notifies the student in writing of the committee’s decision and of the penalty.”Students wishing to appeal decisions of major or minor offenses must do so within seven days of the notification of the decision.If the committee finds the evidence does not support a finding that a violation occurred, the chair of the committee notifies the student of the decision.“The notification should, if possible, be sent within one week of the hearing,” the Honor Code states.Tags: academic investigation, Code of Honor Committee, DaVaris Daniels, Eilar Hardy, Honor Code, Ishaq Williams, KeiVarae Russell, Kendall Moorelast_img read more

‘Freedom of choice could lead to bad pension outcomes’: Dutch professor

first_imgPension funds’ participants are better served with a tailor-made pension plan than with increased freedom of choice for pension arrangements, according to Fieke van der Lecq, professor of pension markets at Amsterdam’s Free University (VU).Speaking during the annual congress of IPE’s sister publication Pensioen Pro, she argued that “if people knew what they wanted at all, freedom of choice could lead to a bad outcome”.The discussion related to the ongoing debate about the future of the Netherlands’ pension system.Van der Lecq said she always wondered what the purpose was of allowing individuals a choice of pension arrangement. “Would it be the comfortable feeling that there is something to choose from, or is it about ending up with arrangements that match your needs?” she said. In the latter case, Van der Lecq argued that “tailor-made” pension plans would be preferable. In her opinion, the danger of people making wrong choices was likely to make them worse off than under the current Dutch pension system.Joep Sonnemans, professor of behavioural economics at Amsterdam University (UvA), emphasised that real tailor-made solutions should also take people’s preferences into account, in addition to objective criteria such as age, accrual capital, and property ownership.However, he said this would be very difficult to measure. “People’s answers differ if you put the question in a different way, as people often don’t know what they want themselves,” he said.Sonnemans said that this would also likely be the case for questions about participants’ need for certainty regarding outcomes.He cited a survey at the occupational scheme for medical consultants, which suggested that younger participants in particular sought much more certainty than expected.“They would rather receive lower benefits with little chance of rights discounts than a considerable upward potential combined with a bigger change of cuts,” Sonnemans said.The impact of robotsAlso during the congress, futurist Richard van Hooijdonk predicted that robots would make many jobs in the pensions sector redundant.He said that work with a predictive and repetititive nature would be taken over by robots, and suggested that up to 80% of current jobs could disappear within 20 years.Van Hooijdonk predicted that technology would make half of all current processes and related jobs around benefits payments superfluous.He further emphasised that technology would considerably reduce the costs of pensions.last_img read more

Munster and Ireland full-back Felix Jones retires

first_imgMunster and Ireland full-back Felix Jones has been forced to retire aged just 28 after a neck injury. Munster confirmed Jones was advised to retire from the sport after a neck problem suffered in the 23-21 Pro12 clash win over Glasgow Warriors on October 2. Jones made 90 Munster appearances and won 13 Ireland caps, missing the final selection cut ahead of the World Cup. Press Association “It is still unthinkable to believe I will never play another game of rugby,” said Jones. “I’ve always had one driving purpose in my life and that was to play rugby. “I’m grateful I could do that in Munster. “That feeling of walking out in front of a packed Thomond Park is something I will never forget. “To accept I will not play with my team-mates again is beyond upsetting. “The guidance I have received from the medical teams in Munster and Ireland has been unfaltering.” Head coach Anthony Foley paid tribute to Jones for his “immense contribution” at Munster. “We are all hugely disappointed for Felix,” said Foley. “He was a leading example in the way he applied himself through his commitment, work-rate and attention to detail. “For a player to come in, embody everything that is Munster and have such a presence within the group, he will be sorely missed on and off the field. “We are very grateful for Felix’s immense contribution over the last six years and wish him all the best for the future.” last_img read more

Running down Heisman contenders not named Jameis

first_imgIn this Dec. 14, 2013 file photo, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston poses with the Heisman Trophy after winning the award in New York. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez, File)The preseason front-runner for the Heisman Trophy last season was easy. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel won it as a freshman the year before, so there was little reason to pick against him.No different this year. Florida State’s Jameis Winston won it as a freshman last season while leading the Seminoles to the national title, so, again, no sense in looking elsewhere.But Winston is far from a lock.Manziel couldn’t come through with another Heisman last season and there has only been one repeat winner — Archie Griffin in 1974 and 1975 — in the 78-year history of college football’s most prestigious award.In this Dec. 2, 1975 file photo, Ohio State’s running back Archie Griffin smiles and holds up two fingers as he poses with the 1975 Heisman Trophy in New York. Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has the opportunity to accomplish what only one other player has achieved _ win consecutive Heisman trophies. Griffin won the award 1974 and 1975. He is shocked that he remains the lone repeat winner since the award’s inception in 1935. (AP Photo/File)With that in mind, we are going to run down six other players who should have a chance at taking home the Heisman:Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon. The Ducks’ leader was a strong Heisman contender last season before being derailed by a knee injury. He still set a school record with 4,380 yards of total offense and accounted for 40 TDs, though he was disappointed when Oregon fell out of national-title contention. After bypassing a shot at the NFL, the junior returns to lead an offense that piles up points and yards like a video game. If he stays healthy, Mariota is one of the nation’s best dual-threat quarterbacks and could find himself holding that bronze trophy.Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio State. The Buckeyes are taking it slow with Miller after offseason shoulder surgery, but he is expected to be ready for the opener against Navy on Aug. 30. Despite missing nearly three full games with a sprained knee last season, he passed for 2,094 yards and 24 touchdowns, and ran for 1,068 yards and 12 scores. The Big Ten’s two-time MVP, he bypassed a shot at the NFL to return to Columbus for his senior season and is motivated to make it a big one.Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor. The Bears set an NCAA record with 52.4 points per game last season, and Petty was the conductor, setting 17 school records while leading Baylor to its first Big 12 title and only BCS bowl. The senior was the Big 12 offensive player of the year after passing for 4,200 yards and 32 TDs — with just three interceptions — and running for 14 more scores. Expect more big numbers from the Bears and Petty.From left are file photos showing college football players Braxton Miller, Ohio State; Bryce Petty, Baylor; Nick Marshall, Auburn; Myles Jack, UCLA; Marcus Mariota, Oregon and Todd Gurley, Georgia. Six players that have a chance of taking home the Heisman trophy. (AP Photo/File)Myles Jack, LB, UCLA. UCLA teammate Brett Hundley might have a better shot at winning the Heisman, but we wanted to get a defensive player in the mix. Jack made a big splash as a freshman last season by becoming a where-did-he-come-from two-way player, rushing for 120 yards in his first game, scoring four TDs the next. But Jack’s NFL future is as a linebacker, and the Bruins have limited him to that side of the ball in fall camp. He might see some time at running back again this season, but he is going to have an impact on D regardless.Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia. Gurley missed three games last season with an ankle injury and wasn’t right when he came back as the Bulldogs limped to an 8-5 finish. Fully healthy again, this bulldog of a Bulldog — 6-foot-1, 226 pounds — has his eyes set on a 2,000-yard season and possibly a spot in New York. Even with his injury a year ago, the junior has rushed for 2,374 yards and 27 touchdowns in two seasons, so 2K isn’t completely out of the question.Nick Marshall, QB, Auburn. Marshall’s chances might be hurt by starting the season opener on the bench. The senior was cited for marijuana possession last month and coach Gus Malzahn said he won’t start against Arkansas on Aug. 30. He still might play in that game and is expected to have another big season after passing for 1,976 yards, running for 1,068 and accounting for 26 touchdowns while leading the Tigers to the final BCS national championship game last year.last_img read more

Congressman Pallone Discusses Stance On Pot, Gambling and Power Lines

first_imgStory and photo by John BurtonKEYPORT – U.S. Representative Frank Pallone Jr. believes the national media paint an inaccurate portrait of work he and his colleagues – on both sides of the political aisle – accomplish.He supports legalizing recreational marijuana, believes sports betting is a way to provide help for struggling Monmouth Park racetrack here, and steadfastly opposes the controversial JCP&L energy transmission line project.Pallone, 64, the Democrat who has been serving in the U.S. House of Representatives for 28 years and is running for re-election this year, talked about these issues at one of his occasional meetings with reporters on Monday.In a casual, nearly two-hour freewheeling forum this week that Pallone and a couple of staffers conducted at the International House of Pancakes on Route 36 for a half-dozen reporters covering Monmouth and Middlesex counties, the veteran Democratic congressman fielded a wide range of questions on areas he’s been working on this two-year term, and issues for his district.“You don’t hear about that in the national media. All you hear about is the fights,” Pallone said of major news outlets’ characterization of the work being done inside the beltway.Pallone said the House is not as paralyzed as portrayed. “Inherently, when you have divided government,” as is often the case, with the president of one political party and one or both chambers of Congress controlled by the opposing party, “you have to work together or nothing gets passed.”And a good 80-to-90 percent of the work the House of Representatives does is through the committee process, not regularly covered by reporters or noticed by the public, Pallone said.Pallone is the ranking Democrat on the House’s Energy and Commerce Committee, which, he explained, deals with about 60 percent of bills the House addresses – and which representatives handle in a largely bipartisan “not terribly interesting” fashion.Regarding the legalization of marijuana, Pallone said, “At one time I was opposed, but not anymore.” Pallone’s views have evolved on that subject and he does support permitting its recreational as well as medicinal use. “Let the state tax and regulate it,” he said.Locally, Pallone said he believes sports gambling would offer some help to Monmouth Park in Oceanport, which is in his district. The racetrack has been waging a so-far unsuccessful federal legal battle to allow sports betting – opposed by the National Football League and National Basketball Association. To that end, the congressman has co-sponsored a bill that would permit it in New Jersey and other states where it’s currently prohibited. Unfortunately, the bill has not had any traction, but Pallone plans to work with its other sponsors to help move it along, he said.Monmouth Park operators continue to advocate for alternative gaming as a way to keep the track viable, given the competition from neighboring states.He hasn’t taken a position, however, on the voter referendum on the November ballot that would permit casinos in North Jersey, other than to say, “I would have liked to see the referendum include Monmouth County,” allowing alternative gaming at Monmouth Park. The referendum would prevent any casinos within a 72-mile radius of Atlantic City, with some local elected officials balking that it offers no help for the county or racetrack.Pallone said he would continue to oppose Jersey Central Power and Light’s proposal to install what the energy company is calling a reliability power line along 10 miles of NJ Transit commuter railway track, from Red Bank to Aberdeen. Residents in close proximity to the rail line, as well as local elected officials, and U.S. Rep. Chris Smith, a Republican representing the 4th Congressional District, along with Pallone, have voiced objections to the project, citing health and other concerns. When the proposal has hearings before the state Board of Public Utilities, Pallone said he would attend and again oppose it.Pallone was supportive of a collection of bills, passed this summer and which had bipartisan support, aimed at addressing the opioid addiction epidemic. His only objection, he added, was it offered insufficient funding, with Pallone slinging a partisan barb at Republicans for failing to financially support programs. “I’m being partisan now,” he said. “The big difference between Democrats and Republicans is funding,” with Pallone stressing it would have been money well spent to address a serious and growing problem. The abuse of painkillers has contributed to the rise in heroine use, he said.Recently some Energy and Commerce Committee members, Pallone included, had requested information regarding Mylan Pharmaceutical’s widely criticized price increase for its EpiPen auto-injector needed by those suffering severe allergies and asthma, seeking to hold public hearings on the price hike. However, in another instance of failure to reach across the aisle, “There are things that are difficult to get Republicans – who hold the Congressional majority – to agree with,” including taking on the pharmaceutical company, he charged. As for whether Republicans will hold hearings, Pallone said, “I doubt they’ll do it.”last_img read more
