Highlands to Zumba its Way Toward Mammogram Awareness

first_imgBy Michele J. KuhnHIGHLANDS – Combine fun and camaraderie with exercise and the opportunity to make women aware of the necessity of mammograms and what do you get? You get the big Zumba event that will mark the Highlands inaugural participation into the Paint the Town Pink campaign.Two Zumba instructors, Margo McCray Gough and Jenny Correa Cervantes, will be leading a free class for those age 15 and older on Monday, May 6, at Henry Hudson Regional High School in Atlantic Highlands. Participants are being asked to arrive at 6:15 p.m. The class will begin at 6:30 p.m. “The first hour will be like a beginner’s class and anyone who wants to remain for the next hour can do so,” said Mary-Margaret Kurta, who is the Paint the Town Pink chairwoman for Highlands.“So many people have been impacted by (Super Storm Sandy) that we thought it would be a nice way to have people do something for themselves, something enjoyable … It will be a good way to take their mind off of things,” said Kurta, who is already talking about what the town might do for next year’s commemoration.Kurta thought that a Zumba class would be a good entry into Meridian Health System’s mammogram awareness campaign because of her own experience at a gym in Atlantic Highlands whose owner is a Highlands resident. She takes a Zumba class there along with many others. “I enjoy it and there are so many women from the area of all different ages that go to the class. So we thought, we enjoy, we like seeing each other and it gives you something to do for yourself,” she said. “That’s how the class came about.”The borough’s participation came about because Kurta had watched during the last seven years how paint the Town Pink “had brought such joy and awareness to the area. I thought, how can we do something?”After talking to a number of people about the idea, she attended a borough council meeting last spring to inquire why Highlands was not involved. Council members asked Kurta “if I’d like to volunteer and I said absolutely.“I personally don’t have any family members who have been impacted by breast cancer but I have many co-workers who have been and whose families have been,” said Kurta, who works as a speech therapist for the Middletown school system. “That really increased my awareness.”The events of the past six months also have acted as an impetus for Kurta to get involved in the campaign.“There are so many people without insurance lately that I’ve talked to in the area, especially with the storm. I think people have let themselves take care of all the other issues and I wondered how many people are really taking care of themselves,” she said.Making an appointment for an annual mammogram is one way for women to care for themselves, she noted.In addition to the Zumba class, pupils and staff from Highlands Elementary School will be wearing pink to show their support for Paint the Town Pink.Students from Henry Hudson Regional also will be helping the Highlands’ businesses participating in Paint the Town Pink by painting store windows with designs to increase awareness of the campaign and the need for mammograms.“It’s great how Atlantic Highlands and Highlands have gotten the students involved,” Kurta said.Though only a few businesses in town have opened since Super Storm Sandy ripped into Highlands, the owners of those that have, have contacted Kurta to see what they can do for Paint the Town Pink. This year “will be just a small stepping stone for something that will be great for this town,” she said.Kurta has been letting people know about Highlands’ participation by talking at town meetings about the campaign. She also has “pinked her ride” – decorated her car with signs and stickers to attract attention for the event. The car was driven by her daughter and son in the Highlands St. Patrick’s Day parade last month.The Zumba class is expected to be open to about 150 participants. Organizers are asking that those who expect to attend register by Wednesday, May 1, at 855-PINK411 (855-746-5411).last_img read more


Eibar – Athletic | Shipwreck of the Atleti in Ipurua

first_imgThe rojiblancos looked for their clothes in the rain matching the intensity of the Eibar in duels and disputes, the rhythm, scratching possession. The break came after João tried to overcome Dmitrovic with a medium and medium petroleum jelly and Vitolo stumbled into the area and fell while Correa, who started the opportunity to pass the ball and picked up the rebound, collided knee to knee with the goalkeeper.To wait for Eibar after rest, while the first ball played was won by Saul. Statement of intents. The match was to be played by combining under and a few meters from the door of Dmitrovic. The team found Vitolo, looked for João, active, without the abrupt gesture of late, carried the ball from side to side a strap that, when taking a step inside, left the right wing for Arias to threaten their careers. The Eibar, neutralized, waited. The minutes passed in Ipurua without the rojiblanco goal coming. Simeone behind him had Adam, Lodi, Llorente and Hermoso with three kids. Morata nodded softly in the center of Saul. A Saul who walked the reverse path of other parties in 71 ’: Lodi entered, the youth player went to the middle. Mendilibar responded by removing the lining to his new signing: Cristóforo. Simeone sought the comeback in the final minutes on the quarry. “I have nothing else,” he seemed to shout at the box, the sterile team, the short staff, the market still open. Camel came in, João went upset, Clemente debuted, Oblak tried to avoid the inevitable before Expósito, that Eibar had let go. Three minutes were enough for an Atlético who broke the changes. Once he was able to take out the miracle hand, but the next no longer. It was 89 ’when Eibar merged again into a hug. That ball of Expósito undressed Atlético again in the constant rain, in the middle of January. And the usual problems. CardsReferee: Jesús Gil ManzanoVAR Referee: José Luis Munuera MonteroSaul (58 ‘, Yellow) Esteban Burgos (61 ‘, Yellow) Savic (84 ‘, Yellow ChangesRenan Augustus (72 ‘, Héctor Herrera), Cristoforo (73 ‘, Pedro León), Pablo De Blasis (79 ‘, Orellana), Sergio Camello (82 ‘, João Félix), Charles (86 ‘, Sergi Enrich), Oscar Clemente (86 ‘, Vitolo) He received Eibar at Atlético in Ipurua, premiering a central pair, Burgos-Bigas, and one purpose: to avoid that not a single rain that fell from the sky be dyed red and white on the grass. Without the mud that formed in past battles and against Atlético more offensive than yesterday he could go to Cholo (Correa, Vitolo; Morata, João), The Mendilibar team seemed to be a fencing master, fast and efficient, looking to hit the lunge from the first play. It was all his. The intention, the dominion, the occasions, the highest pressure, the hybrid grass. And Atlético, meanwhile, all cracks in the defense of the stopped ball. Neither Oblak nor the VAR could avoid the inevitable. They just delayed it.Because the first time Eibar approached the Slovenian goalkeeper, Pedro León did it by throwing a foul like a grenade About his goal. Oblak deactivated it with his miracle hand. And Enrich’s subsequent header, headline him and not Charles, too. Five later there were all the men of Mendilibra again before him, sniffing blood. Orellana had just taken a corner to Arias. Eibar took it from the right, Enrich prolonged, the man with the mask, Burgos, nodded to the net. The celebration was stopped by a pennant in the air. Offside. Until Gil Manzano put a finger to his ear: VAR review. Vitolo and Arias enabled. Valid. The whole Eibar ran to the band to merge into a hug while Atlético shivered naked in the rain.center_img Goals1-0, 9 ‘: Esteban Burgos, 2-0, 89 ‘: Edu Expósito Because all Cholo’s plans were stamped on the Mendilibar board. High pressure and defense, very high. The Eibar winner of each duel, dispute and second play. The Atleti getting tangled up like a ball in his passes inside, always one step behind. And missing the belt terribly from the last games. The first time that the Argentine appeared in the game was in the 25th minute to finish off without a conviction or soul a center of Vitolo, the first time the rojiblancos found their backs to Eibar. Shortly before Dmitrovic took a good hand against João and Cote would blind Morata once. He had to throw and decided to pass, 35 minutes. Atleti had just woken up in the middle of the game.last_img read more

RUBIS, GPL urge more corporate investment in education

first_imgRUBIS Guyana Inc and the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) Limited have reiterated the importance of corporate companies supporting the Biennial Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) Fair programme being undertaken by the Education Ministry.They are urging other corporate entities to invest in education as an avenue of facilitating holistic development.Leading the charge was Retail Accounts Executive Rhonda Johnson, who stressed that her company saw investment in education as investment in theGPL PRO Shevion Sears presenting a cheque to Regional Education Officer (REDO) Tiffany Favourite-Harveycountry’s future leaders, thus it has made significant outlays wherever it could. She noted that this principle saw the company supporting the Region Four Education Department’s STEAM fair in a very significant way.Johnson expressed satisfaction in the execution of the regional fair, but noted that in future fairs there were certainly some improvements that she would like to see. “The organisers and participants did a really remarkable job. However, there were some glitches which I trust can be rectified at the next competition if they are going to continue the growth and development of the science fair,” she said.Meanwhile, GPL Public Relations Officer Shevion Sears said she would like to see a more timely start to the STEAM competition. She also said that this year’s competition produced a significant number of brilliant ideas, which she passionately appealed to the Department of Education to ensure are explored thus further helping to bring them to reality.“There were some interesting projects. I have seen some very fantastic work by the students and it speaks very well about the students’ talent and if we can support these endeavours, there is no doubt that Guyana can be a better place. Therefore, for GPL we believe in supporting these initiatives as it plays a vital role in Guyana moving in the right direction and that we learn to be creators rather than accepting what is just there,” Sears said.The GPL PRO expressed satisfaction at seeing that this year’s competition involved a number of nursery schools, stating that it was the right direction for the organisers to go. She commended them for what she said was a well-organised competition, and urged the Department to continue involving more schools and students.The national finals for the STEAM fair are slated for April 3-6, 2018, at the St Joseph High School.last_img read more

School District 60 enrolment down as predicted

first_imgSloan says this is due to a “bubble” of older kids working their way through the school system. The last couple of years saw large graduating classes, but those were followed by smaller groups. Middle school Bert Bowes has 57 less students than last year, but that was expected, as the 12-15 year old age group is the smallest in that area. What wasn’t expected was the 29 extra students at Alwin Holland, 14 more than projected. Sloan says that is likely due to all the new housing developments going up in that area.- Advertisement – Sloan predicts that the numbers will continue in this way next year and then rise the following year as the students currently filling up the elementary schools move up to middle school. “This is a young, growing and expanding community, so by sheer volume, if the population of Fort St. John increases by 10 per cent, the number of school age children increases correspondingly.”Advertisement As for class sizes, all grades are currently under the provincial maximum average, although Kindergarten is getting close, while Primary and Intermediate are comfortably inside.last_img read more
