first_imgWendy & Tristam Johnson Manchester VT Rotary Club Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary Club $1,500.00 VT Rotary’s donate over $10K to help Vermont Foodbank food assistance effortsVermont Business Magazine As a result of a generous donation from Vermont Rotary Clubs across the state, Vermonters in need will continue to receive fresh dairy products from the Vermont Foodbank for weeks to come.  Continuing a collaboration begun earlier this year to connect Vermont dairy assistance to Vermonters, the Foodbank will receive food donations of Vermont yogurt and butter in support of their food assistance efforts.  Ten Vermont rotary clubs joined forces to raise over $10,000 dollars, adding significant financial support to the effort already in place to recover Vermont milk.In collaboration with Dairy Farmers of America, Commonwealth Dairy LLC and Ploughgate Creamery are turning milk from Vermont dairies into yogurt and butter.  Earlier this year, the Vermont Agency of Agriculture helped coordinate the original dairy recovery program began with $60,000 in funding from the Vermont Community Foundation.  This generous donation covered the cost of milk, ingredients, and processing to create 48,000 cups of Green Mountain Yogurt and 11,500 gallons of Hood Dairy 2% Milk.“When we heard about the need to recover raw milk from local Vermont dairy farms while creating a new, temporary food supply for the Vermont Foodbank, Rotarians sprang into action to help Vermont farmers, children, and food-insecure families,” said Martin Cohn, past President of the Brattleboro Rotary Club.  “We hope that the collaboration shown in this project will serve as a model for other states.”Below is the list of Vermont Rotary Clubs and members who supported this effort:Rotary District 7850 $50Joining the effort, Ploughgate Creamery of Waitsfield is receiving cream from Weybridge’s Monument Farms Dairy to produce 110 pounds of handmade butter per week for 4 weeks. “I am proud to live in a state where community comes first! Thank you to the Vermont Rotary Clubs and Foodbank for organizing this amazing program,” said Marisa Mauro, owner/operator of Ploughgate Creamery. “This is a wonderful example of how Vermonters respond in times of strife!  Everyone works together to reach common goals,” said Jon Rooney of Monument Farms.The Rotary donation also supports Commonwealth Yogurt’s continued supply of 48,000 cups of yogurt over 4 weeks.  These donations will serve hundreds of people over the course of the coming weeks, providing nutritious dairy products to Vermont communities in need while preventing the waste of valuable food.Additional support in the form of transportation of yogurt to the Vermont Foodbank will come from Cabot Cheese.  Cabot will be picking up Green Mountain Creamery yogurt from the Commonwealth Dairy plant in Brattleboro and delivering it to the VT Foodbank’s Barre distribution center for the next three weeks, enabling more Vermonters to benefit from this charitable effort.Secretary Anson Tebbetts of the Vermont Agency of Agriculture said, “This is what Vermont is all about. Neighbors helping neighbors. Thank you Rotarians, farmers and businesses. You and so many are helping those in need.”To find out more about how you can join in the many efforts to help in your communities, visit:Vermont Foodbank COVID-19 Hunger Relief Fund(link is external)Vermont Community Foundation Responding to COVID-19 in Vermont(link is external)Dairy Farmers of America Farmers Feeding Families Fund(link is external)*May 6, 2020 Initial Announcement: Vermont Dairy Farmers, Dairy Producers and the VT Community Foundation Collaborate to Donate to the VT Foodbank(link is external)“Rotary & Foodbank” image from Left to Right:Susan Gabree, Commonwealth Dairy Lab TechCarla Lineback, president, Brattleboro Rotary ClubMary Springer, Windsor Rotary ClubNancy Russell, Rotary District 7870 District GovernorBarbara Muench, president, Manchester Rotary ClubSam Garland, Commonwealth Dairy Project ManagerMartin Cohn, past president, Brattleboro Rotary ClubLouisa Tripp, Rotary District 7850 Past District GovernorJonathan Buckley, Commonwealth Dairy Filling Lead 1st ShiftRoger Allbee, vice president, Brattleboro Rotary ClubAbout Rotary(link is external) Rotary International brings together a global network of volunteer leaders dedicated to tackling the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges.

Out of the mouths of (consumers)

first_imgby. Bo McDonaldThink about when someone preaches the same message at you on a regular basis. You dismiss it because, well, for whatever reason. And then along comes someone completely unbiased who gives you the same advice. It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s   correct, but it certainly gets your attention.Sometimes we marketing folks are in that same position. We feel passionately and preach the need for a certain something to happen. The response is usually: “It’s just those goofy marketing guys with a bunch of balloons and yee haa harping at us again.” For me, it’s the necessity of employees and the front line staff to be recognized as the greatest marketing asset in your organization.At YMC, we fervently believe that marketing goes a lot deeper than what we bring to the table. We can brainstorm, create, and execute. But if the rest of the team is not on board then the time and money put into marketing will be wasted. So we preach it. You listen. Perhaps you are considering our advice. How about some cold hard facts and a testimonial from an unbiased consumer?I ran across a post on the “Brains on Fire” blog a few days ago from Amy Taylor. I would consider Amy as your target demographic. She’s a young, professional female who probably needs a car loan, perhaps a credit card, and soon maybe even her first home. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Women finish Mercedes-Benz Invitational in 8th

first_imgWomen finish Mercedes-Benz Invitational in 8thTwo golfers ended up tied for 18th in the tournament at 6 over-par each.Alex Tuthill-PreusGophers second year Heather Ciskowski tees off at the Minikahda Club during the Minnesota Invitational on Tuesday, September 15. Jack WhiteSeptember 23, 2015Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintHighlighted by the performances of Celia Kuenster and Heather Ciskowski, the Minnesota Women’s golf team finished in eighth place overall at the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate Championships. “We didn’t play real well as a team today. The placements were a little easier, and we just didn’t play great,” head coach John Carlson said. “[The course] was difficult. It presents quite a challenge from green to tee.” “Getting used to the greens,” head coach Michele Redman said when asked what the team needs to improve on. “Trying to figure out where is the right spot to be on these greens [because] there’s so many little mounds on them.” The team struggled in the first and second round of the tournament, scoring a 296 and 297, respectively. Even though Minnesota had a top 10 finish as a team, the team scored two rounds over 300 in the tournament. Even though Kuenster tied for the best score of any Minnesota golfer individually, she still underperformed from her first place finish last week at the Gopher Invitational. Kuenster scored a 219 total at the tournament compared to her 213 finish last week. Ciskowski and Kuenster both tied for 18th place individually at the tournament. The Gophers finished with a score of 882 but had the second-best score of the last day of a tournament with a 289. “I didn’t feel like I made the best decisions,” Kuenster said. “I felt like I was playing pretty well and needed to stay patient.” “All of us walked away feeling pretty good about our game,” Ciskowski said. The short game continued to be a challenge for the Gophers, who had a hard time adapting to the course.center_img “I was really happy to see Justin in the lineup this week,” Carlson said. “It was fantastic to see a top 10 finish.” The men’s team showed improvement from their previous tournament, recording a score of 895 at the Husky Invitational after recording an 899 at the Gopher Invitational last week. Minnesota placed ninth in the tournament, with their best score coming in the second round with a 294. The junior from Prior Lake tied for a 10th place individually with Washington State University’s Aaron Whalen with a score of 218. The score was 5-over par for the tournament. Men’s team finishes Ninth An individual standout for the men’s team was Justin Doeden, playing in his first tournament for the Gophers after transferring from Cardinal Stritch University. Ciskowski improved dramatically from the prior week, finishing 11 strokes better at the Mercedes-Benz Invitational than her score last week. Ciskowski was a surprise standout for the Gophers. The sophomore posted a 219 total, with a strong first round of 71 capped off by two scores of 74 the following rounds.last_img read more

Mindfulness May Improve Test Scores

first_imgScientific American: There’s a meditation practice called “mindfulness” that is about actively focusing on the present moment and increasing one’s attention span.Recently scientists analyzed whether such a practice could help improve undergrads’ test scores in the Graduate Record Exams, the GREs. The idea is that if we limit mind wandering, our ability to focus improves, and so will our cognitive ability. [The paper is published in the journal Psychological Science.The researchers had 24 undergrads attend a mindfulness course and another 24 go to a nutrition class. Each 45-minute class met eight times over two weeks.Read the whole story: Scientific American More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Kids, Would You Please Start Fighting?

first_imgWhen Wilbur and Orville Wright finished their flight at Kitty Hawk, Americans celebrated the brotherly bond. The brothers had grown up playing together, they had been in the newspaper business together, they had built an airplane together. They even said they “thought together.”These are our images of creativity: filled with harmony. Innovation, we think, is something magical that happens when people find synchrony together. The melodies of Rodgers blend with the lyrics of Hammerstein. It’s why one of the cardinal rules of brainstorming is “withhold criticism.” You want people to build on one another’s ideas, not shoot them down. But that’s not how creativity really happens.When the Wright brothers said they thought together, what they really meant is that they argued together. One of their pivotal decisions was the design of a propeller for their plane. They squabbled for weeks, often shouting back and forth for hours. “After long arguments we often found ourselves in the ludicrous position of each having been converted to the other’s side,” Orville reflected, “with no more agreement than when the discussion began.” Only after thoroughly decimating each other’s arguments did it dawn on them that they were both wrong. They needed not one but two propellers, which could be spun in opposite directions to create a kind of rotating wing. “I don’t think they really got mad,” their mechanic marveled, “but they sure got awfully hot.” Read the whole story: The New York Times More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Working during COVID-19 pandemic may protect against the mental and physical health effects of lockdown

first_imgEach subject’s mental and physical health was assessed with the Short Form-12 scale, the Kessler psychological distress scale, and the Satisfaction With Life scale. To examine certain factors that might impact health and well-being, participants were asked how often they exercised and whether or not they were working during the lockdown.The results revealed interesting trends when it came to working during the outbreak. Subjects who continued working at home showed better mental health than those who stopped working entirely. Those who worked at the office during the outbreak showed even greater benefits, presenting with both better mental and physical health than those who stopped working. Specifically, those working at the office showed lower levels of distress and higher life satisfaction than those who were not working.Results showed that severity of the outbreak was related to decreased life satisfaction for people who had chronic medical issues but not for those who did not. This suggests that those with underlying medical problems were especially affected by the severity of the situation where they lived.Surprisingly, the severity of the outbreak was also associated with decreased life satisfaction in those who exercised more than 2.5 hours a day. Those who exercised less than half an hour a day actually showed higher life satisfaction in areas with the more severe outbreaks, over less affected areas. The researchers discuss these unexpected findings, suggesting, “Maybe these people could better justify or rationalize their inactive lifestyles in more severely affected cities … we may need to pay attention to more physically active individuals, who might be more frustrated by the restrictions due to the outbreak”.The authors caution that due to the way they recruited subjects, their findings are not nationally representative. Still, the findings offer valuable insight into the types of people who are most affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. Policymakers and mental health professionals might prioritize giving help to those who have stopped working and those who have chronic health issues.The study, “Unprecedented disruption of lives and work: Health, distress and life satisfaction of working adults in China one month into the COVID-19 outbreak”, was authored by Stephen X Zhang, Yifei Wang, Andreas Rauch, and Feng Wei. A new study in China found that those who worked during the pandemic showed better physical and mental health than those who stopped working. The study was published in Psychiatry Research.Near the end of January 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 caused Chinese officials to lock down the entire city of Wuhan, affecting its 12 million residents. Gradually, other cities in the Hubei province took similar lockdown measures. The impact of these restrictions on the work lives and well-being of residents is unknown. With this recent study, the researchers hoped to provide insight for other countries experiencing variations of lockdown.A survey was conducted roughly one month into the lockdown of Wuhan and surrounding cities, on February 20-21. Participants were 369 adults from 64 jurisdictions of China that were affected by COVID-19 to varying degrees. Each location was given a score for severity of the outbreak by calculating the number of COVID-19 cases per 10,000 people.

WHO confirms MERS in Iran as Kuwait finds virus in camels

first_imgThe World Health Organization (WHO) today confirmed the first two MERS-CoV cases in Iran, reported recently in the news media, while another media story said Kuwait has found the virus in five camels.Also, Saudi Arabia reported no new MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) cases or deaths today, for the second day in a row.Meanwhile, a ScienceInsider report unveiled the circumstances underlying two recent scientific papers that deal with MERS-CoV in the same Saudi Arabian patient and his camels. The story describes a dispute between Saudi Ministry of Health (MOH) scientists and a Saudi university group and raises questions about the findings of the latter.Both Iranian patients still aliveIn confirming the MERS cases in two Iranian sisters, the WHO said both patients are still alive, which contradicts a May 30 media report that said one of them had died. The agency said Iranian officials informed it of the cases on May 26.The two women, ages 52 and 50, both have underlying conditions and fell ill on May 11, the WHO reported. The older one was hospitalized the same day and is in critical condition. She had not traveled, had contact with animals, or consumed raw camel products before her illness, but she had close contact with another woman who had traveled to Saudi Arabia for the Umrah pilgrimage and had an influenza-like illness.The younger sister was hospitalized on May 17 and is in stable condition, the WHO said. She had close contact with her sister before her illness, but like her, had not traveled or had any exposures to camels or other animals. The women live in Kerman province.Iranian health authorities are monitoring all of the two patients’ close contacts, the agency said. In addition, some control measures have been established at the hospital where they are being treated.The two cases raised the WHO’s global MERS count to 683 cases and 204 deaths. The number includes 44 cases that Saudi Arabia reported to the WHO between May 19 and Jun 2. The agency did not mention the 113 cases, with 92 deaths, that Saudi officials reported belatedly on Jun 3. Details on those cases are still awaited.Infected camels in KuwaitWord of MERS-CoV infections in five camels in Kuwait came in a terse news story yesterday from the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA). It appears to be the first report of infected camels in the country.Jassem Al-Bader, head of Kuwait’s Public Authority for Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources, announced the camel findings, the story said. The infections were found “among 83 diagnosed specimens,” and the camels’ owners have been told to isolate the animals, it said. The story gave no other details about the camels.A post on ProMED, the outbreak reporting service of the International Society for Infectious Diseases, said that if the news is confirmed, Kuwait will become the fifth country on the Arabian Peninsula to find MERS-CoV in camels, following Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.In related news, officials in Qatar found evidence of past MERS-CoV infection in five camels, according to a report they filed with the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) on Jun 9. The finding involves the same farm where a human MERS-CoV case was identified last October and where three infected camels were identified.The new report said “seroneutralization tests” conducted in the Netherlands were positive for 5 of 12 camels, implying that they had antibodies to MERS-CoV or a similar virus. No camels died, and apparently none had symptoms, as the report cited “asymptomatic exposure of camel to MERS-CoV.”Comments included in the report mention the collection of camel milk samples, but it doesn’t make clear whether the milk samples were tested.On Jun 5 a Gulf Times story described a Qatari national survey that showed that MERS-CoV RNA was found in more than half of milk samples from camels that were shedding the virus. The survey also revealed that MERS-CoV antibodies were found in all camel milks samples, the story said.Duplicate studiesThe ScienceInsider story deals with two recent papers that both describe a MERS patient in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, who owned camels infected with MERS-CoV, suggesting that he caught the virus from them.One was published Mar 20 in Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID) and lists Ziad Memish, MD, former Saudi deputy health minister, as lead author. The other paper was published last week in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) and included Tariq Madani of King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah as senior author. Madani recently became the Saudi government’s chief scientific adviser on MERS.Madani told Science that the infected Jeddah man was his patient and that he was the first to send a team to investigate at the patient’s farm. He also said he notified the Saudi MOH at the time of his suspicion that camels might have been the source of the virus.Memish told Science that the MOH then conducted its own investigation of the case before announcing on Nov 11 that a camel was the likely source of the man’s infection. He said no physicians were authorized to interfere with the MOH investigation or investigate on their own without coordinating with the ministry.The Memish study reported that sequencing of about 15% of the genome of a MERS-CoV isolate from one of the camels showed that it was almost identical to the virus from the patient, the story notes.Madani’s team reported that they sequenced the full genomes of both the human and the camel isolates and found that they were 100% identical. But several scientists, according to ScienceInsider, are raising doubts about that finding on technical grounds.In an e-mailed statement this week, NEJM, which published Madani’s paper, said, “There is substantive difference between the June 2014 NEJM article and the Emerging Infectious Diseases article published online in March. The NEJM article includes a clinical description, as well as laboratory, serologic, and virologic data. There is no author overlap between the articles.”NEJM editors were not aware of the EID article prior to our publication. Had they been aware, they would have requested an acknowledgement in the NEJM article. To address this matter, we have appended an editor’s note to the NEJM article.”Ian Mackay, PhD, a virologist at the University of Queensland in Australia, told ScienceInsider that the case is another example of the complex politics of MERS research in Saudi Arabia. “It typifies what MERS has been all about: very poor communication,” he said.See also: May 27 CIDRAP News story on Iranian casesJun 10 KUNA storyJun 9 OIE report by QatarJun 11 ProMED post on infected camelsJun 10 ScienceInsider storyJun 4 CIDRAP News story on NEJM reportlast_img read more
