first_imgWith the news that Widespread Panic‘s decision to not tour after this year causing, well, a panic amongst fans, frontman John Bell has since clarified some of the initial statements, saying the band is just scaling things back after this year. In addition, percussionist Sunny Ortiz also allayed the fears that Panic wouldn’t be touring at all. In an interview with C-Ville, Ortiz discussed the group 30th anniversary tour, and the decision to simply take some time to concentrate on family, recharge the batteries, and work on non-Panic related projects when the celebration is over.Widespread Panic Will Not Be Extensively Touring After This YearOrtiz clarified the no-touring statement: “Well, I think you almost have to read in between the lines, you know. We really didn’t say, or at least we really didn’t come to a decision as far as [to] stop touring. I think what the verbiage should have said was that we’re going to do a smaller amount of shows than we are doing this year.”Widespread Panic Heats Up The Historic Tenneesee Theatre For Two Night Run [Setlist/Stream]With the decision to dial things down from the arduous touring schedule that provides plenty of wear and tear both physically and mentally, the band will still play the major multi-night runs, festival plays, and do some minor touring, but stay away from the 100-date a year, day-in, day-out tour bus lifestyle, as Ortiz explains “for us to say that we’re going to not tour. …I think we need to expand on that and say, ‘Yeah, we’ve got to tour. We have to sustain ourselves.’ It’s what we’ve been doing for the past 30 years is touring..”.In short, relax, there will still be plenty of time to get your Panic on.[via C-Ville.com]last_img read more

‘Shark Tank’ judge visits campus

first_imgAddressing a maximum-capacity crowd in Mendoza’s Jordan Auditorium last Friday, investor Kevin O’Leary of the hit ABC show “Shark Tank” shared his thoughts on great entrepreneurship and judged three business proposals pitched by Notre Dame student entrepreneurs.Before transforming the auditorium into a mock ‘shark tank,’ O’Leary first explained what the show reveals about entrepreneurship.“The American Dream is alive, and we watch it happen on Shark Tank,” O’Leary said. “Watching Shark Tank is watching the pursuit of freedom.”Rosie Biehl O’Leary shared clips from a previous episode of Shark Tank in which mother-and-daughter team Tracey Noonan and Danielle Vilagie pitched their cupcake-in-a-jar business called Wicked Good Cupcakes to demonstrate how the show acts as a platform to such freedom.Noonan and Vilagie were put to what O’Leary calls the true test — taking a commodity that is ubiquitous in America and building a national brand. O’Leary said the addition of a platform like Shark Tank to a business like Wicked Good Cupcakes substantially contributes to its success and made it possible to build a national brand on something with little proprietary value. Wicked Good Cupcakes is now the fastest growing cupcake company in America.“Shark Tank is a giant platform, is a giant infomercial worth about $12 million,” O’Leary said.Following its appearance on Shark Tank, O’Leary said Wicked Good Cupcakes saw sales increase to 15 times what it was before the show aired.“The Shark Tank factor is very much alive, and I think America has figured that out,” he said.Shark Tank and entrepreneurship are all about personal freedom, and that’s why O’Leary said he came to Notre Dame — to discuss how that personal freedom can be achieved by future entrepreneurs.O’Leary organized his thoughts into three different lists that exhibit key traits necessary to becoming a successful entrepreneur.The first list he shared with the audience stated the three commonalties of all deals ever funded on Shark Tank.First was the ability of the entrepreneurs to articulate the business’ vision in 90 seconds or less. Second was their ability to convince investors that they were the right team to execute the business plan, and third was a complete comprehensive understanding of their business models and numbers.The second list elucidated six attributes of what it takes to make a great entrepreneur.The first attribute is one’s preparation to make a “life/balance sacrifice,” O’Leary said.“There will be no balance during the period you are growing your business because you have to fall in love with your business,” he said. “It must consume you. It will eat your hours. If you don’t have the passion, your competitor will.”O’Leary said great entrepreneurs have a little knowledge about everything but a lot about what they are selling. Put shareholders first, have a passion for what they sell, use technology to improve efficiency and understand business is a global competition.An entrepreneur’s concept of a global market is one of the most important attributes to have, especially in the modern business world, O’Leary said.“For the first time there are more than a billion market cap companies outside the United States … so in every industry there is a giant competitor,” he said.Addressing the students in the audience, O’Leary said when “when you graduate, think global because your competitor is, and they want your share.”After being an investor for a long time, O’Leary said businesses that sustain and maintain profits understand the following rules: employees are the primary assets and are to be anchored by culture, the customer always come first, service trumps price, the boss does not necessarily make the most money, everybody is replaceable and business is war.O’Leary said knowing business is war is of utmost importance for any entrepreneur hoping to preserve a business, and he warned prospective entrepreneurs to not be distracted by a desire to solve all of society’s problems.“Your job is go out into the world and understand who you serve, but not solve all of society’s problems,” he said. “Your job is go into war everyday and win. Stay focused to the mission that business is war.”Next, O’Leary entertained three business pitches from three groups of student entrepreneurs, and he only had harsh remarks for the first business pitch called Aerofit, a chain of airport fitness centers.“The truth is some ideas are inherently flawed and this [one] is,” he said.The second team, seniors Joe Mueller and Federico Segura, pitched their business called Sessa, a social investing app, and O’Leary said he was interested and would be in touch.The final student entrepreneur was freshmen Michael McRoskey who pitched his business called Red Bag, which sells $5 homeless care packages.O’Leary said he was reluctant to invest in the company for fear it would become more of a charity than an actual business.Audience members then voted for their favorite business idea via Poll Everywhere. Sessa won the audience vote and walked away with a $100 cash prize and an expectation of a phone call from O’Leary.O’Leary concluded his lecture with the cheer “Go Irish!” and spent the following day tailgating with fellow Irish fans before attending the Notre Dame vs. Louisville football game.Tags: entrepreneurship, Kevin O’Leary, Red Bag, Sessa, Shark Tank, Wicked Good Cupcakeslast_img read more

Saint Mary‘s implements new environmental studies major

first_imgThis academic school year marks the official launching of a new major in environmental studies offered at Saint Mary’s. Last spring, the program was approved by the Academic Affairs Counsel after a yearlong process of researching and planning for the curriculum. Historically, implementing a new major requires a two-year period in order to thoroughly understand the program’s vision, cost and demand, professor of environmental studies Christopher Cobb said. However, Cobb and professor of biology Cassie Majetic co-chaired the initiative on an accelerated time table to create the environmental studies major in one year. Cobb said one of the major motivating factors throughout the process was living out the College’s mission.Majetic said ever since the minor was established seven years ago, students have always shown interest toward majoring in environmental studies. Within two years, questions regarding a major surfaced. One Saint Mary’s student developed her own “student designed” major in environmental studies when the minor was the only option, Majetic said. Now, environmental studies is a significant interest among the students. Majetic said she spent the entirety of 2017’s summer developing the program’s core elements. In the following months, an innovation team composed of Saint Mary’s faculty from 15 different departments formed to propel the project further. The variety of faculty ranged from departments such as biology, philosophy, English, political science, art, education, math, economics and more.“We wanted a truly interdisciplinary program,” she said. “We wanted the major to be authentically Saint Mary’s.” The innovation team’s efforts culminated into a final proposal, which was presented to the Board of Trustees and then approved by the Academic Affairs Counsel. Once the new major was publicly announced, a number of Saint Mary’s students asked about declaring a major in environmental studies.“Admissions is super excited to advertise the new major,” Majetic added.In accordance with the College’s mission statement, Cobb said the class reflects themes from “Laudato Si,” Pope Francis’s encyclical on care for the environment. “‘Laudato si,’ [Pope Francis’s encyclical letter] makes it clear that everyone is called to creation care,” he said. “Environmental justice is very much a part of the charism of the Sisters [of the Holy Cross]. The direction we are going is very much consistent with their mission.”In addition, Cobb shared some of the team’s intentions that helped sculpt the vision of this program. “We were mindful that we wanted the major to connect with the natural area, the sustainable farm and the built environment of the campus as a space for learning about and practicing sustainability,” he said.Majetic said she was willing to meet with any students who have questions regarding the new major.She said she believes instituting the major aligns with Saint Mary’s’ Catholic mission.“We think, as a Catholic institution, we have a call to this work,” she said. “We have students who are very interested in this kind of work.”Tags: Academic Affairs Counsel, environmental studies, majorslast_img read more

Civil rights movement leader speaks at annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day luncheon

first_imgAs part of Notre Dame’s “Walk the Walk Week” and in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the campus community joined together for a luncheon at the Joyce Athletic and Convocation Center. After a choral performance and an opening invocation, Diane Nash — a civil rights movement leader who helped integrate lunch counters and organize the iconic Freedom Riders — spoke with a panel of students and faculty about civil rights, nonviolence and the fight for justice. Events like these that bring people together in remembrance of history, Nash said, are healthy and beneficial for a community. However, she added “history’s most important function, though, is to help us cope with the present.”To truly honor King and the legacy of the civil rights movement, Nash said, holidays and monuments do not suffice — Americans must continue nonviolent movements which resist systems of oppression.“The Wright brothers were probably pretty good guys,” Nash said. “Wouldn’t it have been a shame if we had dedicated a holiday to them and never developed their invention — developed aviation? We would have missed out on a lot.”Nash noted, however, that substantive activism requires courage and sacrifice. She recounted a time she spoke at a college and a student asked her, “How can I make a social change and not get my professors angry with me?” “My response was, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me,’” Nash said. “I told that young lady about the many students in the 1960s who were expelled from school for participating in the civil rights movement. And that’s not even to mention those who were severely wounded, who went to jail and those who were killed. So, sacrifice is necessary.”Nash added that social movements begin when a persecuted group of people decide to stand up for the rights of themselves and others in their community. Genevieve Redsten | The Observer Diane Nash, a Civil Rights activist who advocated for lunch counter integration and organized the Freedom Riders, spoke Monday at the annual luncheon honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. as part of Walk the Walk Week.“Oppression always requires the participation of the oppressed,” Nash said. “If the oppressed withdraw their participation from that oppressive system, the system will fall.”Nash invoked the example of the Montgomery bus boycott, during which oppressed, black Americans refused to ride on the city’s segregated public buses. By withdrawing financial support from the oppressive system, Nash said, they forced the system to fall.But, Nash added, real nonviolent social movements require more than mere protest. First, they must educate the oppressed, educate their oppressors and negotiate with their oppressors, she said. Demonstration and resistance, she said, should only follow once these earlier steps are complete. Even after social movements make progress, Nash added, their work cannot end — they must fight to make sure the oppressive system does not repeat itself.Senior Kenzie Isaac, the director of diversity and inclusion for Notre Dame’s student government, asked Nash how she practiced self-care while working long hours to organize students — and while facing racist violence in the process.“I don’t think I was able to do a lot of self-care apart from the movement itself,” Nash said, but she added that the very act of resisting was restorative.“Not to resist being oppressed and discriminated against like that was unacceptable,” Nash said. “The movement itself was self-care.”Although Nash’s activism was primarily focused on ending racial segregation and racism, Isaac asked how other forms of oppression factored into her work.“You were a young person when you started out in the movement, you were a woman and, to tie all that together, you were an African American woman,” Isaac said. “And so, I’d like to hear more about how you being young and you being a woman in this male-dominated [movement] informed your approach to activism — and what sort of barriers or benefits that posed throughout your work.”Throughout her work in the civil rights movement, Nash said she faced sexist discrimination from other male civil rights leaders.“Women were very active in the civil rights movement. Women did everything that men did,” Nash said. “But it hadn’t occurred to us that the same thing that we were saying about justice and equality in the race were applicable to gender.”As new leaders undertake the fight for social justice, Libby Moyer, a panel member and a second-year Notre Dame law student, asked Nash what role white allies should assume. Nash agreed that white allies were essential to the civil rights movement — and continue to be important — but that black Americans nonetheless need their own independent activist spaces.“I also think it’s important for descendants of enslaved Africans in this country to have organizations and movements of our own. The civil rights movement was a movement of black students supported by black communities to eliminate segregation. We had white support,” Nash said.By assuming leadership roles and creating all-black movements, Nash said, black social justice leaders aren’t simply sidelining white allies.“If you make decisions about your household — if you decided that you need a refrigerator and what kind of refrigerator you need — and only you and your spouse make that decision, that doesn’t mean that you hate the man across the street,” Nash said.Before the event came to a close, Nash addressed the students in the crowd.“As you go through life, you will have decisions to make, and my advice would be [to] always make the decision that will make you admire and respect the person you see in the mirror,” she said.Tags: Diane Nash, Martin Luther King Celebration Luncheon, Martin Luther King Jr., MLK Day, Walk the Walk Weeklast_img read more

Hurricane Preparedness

first_imgBetween dealing with the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and early indications of an especially active hurricane season, University of Georgia experts urge citizens to prepare early and remain prepared for weather-related emergencies.This year’s Atlantic hurricane season is off to a record-setting start, according to climatologist Pam Knox, who is also director of the UGA Weather Network for the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. She says to expect another 10 or so named storms and five to nine hurricanes as the season progresses.“Since one out of four storms directly affects the southeast, Georgia is likely to see more storm activity as the season ramps up later this summer and fall,” she said. “The season officially ends on Nov. 30, but in an active year it is not unusual to get storms that occur in December.”Knox and other UGA Cooperative Extension faculty are encouraging careful preparation for weather-related emergencies with the additional impacts of COVID-19.“It’s important to assess your property, including trees, and take care of any issues before storms arise. Make a plan for your family and business and back up important records,” she said.Added precautions during a pandemicMaking evacuation plans, stocking up on supplies and planning for social distancing are all important factors to consider or reassess.“Develop your plans early — you don’t have room to improvise this year — and have more than one plan,” said Chatham County Extension Coordinator Tim Davis, who remains behind during storms to help at the local Emergency Management Authority. He recommends planning to evacuate farther than usual, if possible, due to limitations on space and availability of transportation.“Everything you’re going to do, you need to think about COVID-19. You need to think about evacuating sooner, farther and for longer. Shelters are going to have a reduced capacity due to social distancing. The ability to transport people will also be limited. Keep your gas tanks full and your vehicle everyday carry supplies on hand,” he said.If evacuation plans include another person’s residence, social distancing and potential isolation should be considered. “It’d be nice to have a house that has a part for you and a part of them,” said Davis. “If someone gets sick, have a place to isolate them.”And if you’re still having an issue finding supplies now, during or after a severe storm will likely be much worse, he says.“Supplies are already limited, and when a hurricane comes along, the shelves empty out very quickly. You need to think very far ahead and get everything you need, so when that storm forms you can be calm and collected because you’re ready,” he added. “I think our ability to resupply is also going to be limited. We always say three days to a week, but I think you probably need longer than that this year. And if you’re planning on staying, which is usually a bad decision, you need to be prepared for a longer recovery response.”Recommended items to add to emergency preparedness kits in light of COVID-19 include additional face coverings, hand soap, hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies, disinfectant wipes and disposable gloves.Preparing children for added stressDon’t forget any items that could help children cope with stress and make a plan that will follow their normal schedule as much as possible, said Diane Bales, associate professor and Extension specialist in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences. Child-specific tasks might include preparing clothes or toys.“Preparing children helps to reduce fear, anxiety and panic, all of which can be very challenging,” she said. “We also want to build their confidence and competence, so they know what to do and feel confident they can do it. We’re also hoping to build in an appropriate sense of control.”During a severe storm, use simple language to explain what is happening. Include why you’re doing activities such as boarding up windows or evacuating. Additionally, reassure children that you or another trusted adult will be alongside them, said Bales, because they rely on attachment figures like parents and other family members for comfort and stability.“We worry for children especially about the long-term dangers of being under this stress. A persistent hyperarousal, meaning they are always high alert, makes impulse control difficult and makes important higher-order thinking more difficult. Children who have been under stress long term can have more difficulty with decision-making, with reasoning at school, with relationships.”Why do children respond differently to hurricanes and other emergencies? They have a hard time knowing the difference between what they imagine is going on and what is actually going on.“Younger children especially have an inability to recognize danger. They also have limited experience in general, and limited coping skills because they have not had the opportunity to develop them yet,” explained Bales. “Children also process things in bits and pieces and may ask the same question repeatedly. Some children may not want to ask questions or talk about their feelings at all.”UGA Extension has many publications and resources on weather preparedness and recovery available at t.uga.edu/6dV.

3 ways to take advantage of your team members’ strengths

first_imgThe highest quality machines usually have the strongest parts. If you want your team to be the strongest, you’ll want to make sure you’re maximizing the strengths of your employees. Here are three ways to do just that…Do your research: If you want to maximize the potential of your employees’ strengths, you have to know exactly what they are. Through conversing with your team and observing them in their current roles, you should be able to get a better idea of where their strengths and weakness lie.Shuffle the deck: You won’t always find that employees are in the ideal role for their skillset. If you find an employee is struggling in their current position, it may be time to look and see if there’s a better fit in the company. Furniture can be a pain to put together, but when the assembly is done and every part is in the right place, it’s a satisfying result.Water your plants: Just like plants need water and sunlight to grow, your employees can’t grow if they’re not given what they need. Sometimes employees need training to further their skills in certain areas. Find opportunities to help employees grow in ways that will help your staff and the company. 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

When they both caught Covid, they were terrified that if Miriam’s health deteriorated that they may have to go to hospital – meaning Miriam would have to leave the safety of the church and risk being captured by Immigration and Customs Enforcement Officers.Produced by Sophia Smith Galer Across the US, a number of Lutheran churches have formed a sanctuary movement to support undocumented migrants – and their work has doubled due to Covid.In California, Pastor Nelson Rabel Gonzalez has been visiting his city’s mainly Mexican migrant population that work in the grape and cherry fields.

New suburban sales record for Brisbane as temperatures test auctioneers

first_img Record smashing suburbs of 2019 MORE REAL ESTATE STORIES Godfather of coral lists ‘Rivendell’ home This Kedron house now holds the suburb record.“We had over 150 groups through during the opens and the buyers were a couple from Sydney who had been flying up to find their dream home.”Real estate agents across Brisbane sizzled in their formal dress suits on Saturday as 65 properties went to auction. While onlookers fanned themselves, auctioneer Charles Higgins sweltered in a suit at the Clayfield auction.Fortunately, shorts, summer dresses and tshirts were the wardrobe of choice for the 50 onlookers and six of the seven registered bidders who came to see the entry level Clayfield property at 30 Childs St sell for the first time in 50 years. The entry-level property at 30 Childs St, Clayfield.“We’d better start before the benefit of this woollen suit wears off,” auctioneer Charles Higgins announced to the crowd at 10am.The auction kicked off with an easy $800,000 from bidder number three wearing shorts and casual slides. The Clayfield auction begins.A counter bid of $825,000 came from an elderly man bidding on behalf of his daughter.Bidder three then tried to slow the auction with a $15,000 rise but a bid from the road behind him blew most of the competition away.“$950,000,” said buyer’s agent Jordan Navybox, dressed in formal blue trousers but with a casual white polo shirt.“It’s important for people in our profession to look professional but at the same time, our clients like to be on the same level as us,” he said after the auction. “When you turn up in a suit it can be a bit overwhelming. Dress to suit the weather.”The elderly man with his daughter by his side, hung on for another few thousand until, at $990,000, his bid increase of $1000 was rejected.“We’re rounding to $1 million,” Mr Higgins said.“No, no way. Not interested,” came the reply.
