Dear Friends,The city has contracted East Coast Falcons in an effort to scare away the gulls who have become dependent on an unnatural supply of food stolen from people on the boardwalk and beach.From 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, starting tomorrow (Saturday, Aug. 3), falcons, hawks and owls will fly over Ocean City to move the gulls away from these areas without harming them. This abatement program is believed to be the first of its kind for any shore town on the East Coast.When East Coast Falcon’s professionals fly the raptors overhead, gulls know instinctively to leave an unsafe place.Professional falconry-based bird abatement is a humane, effective solution for removing nuisance birds.The contractor is licensed to conduct the work, and the effort is approved by the Humane Society of Ocean City, which oversees animal control for the town.Over time, the gulls in Ocean City have become increasingly aggressive in their quest for boardwalk food and beach picnics.For the health and safety of both these birds and humans, the city must take action to return them to their natural diet and habitat.Falcons will soon scare away the seagulls that pester Boardwalk strollers and beachgoers, the mayor says. (Photo courtesy City of Ocean City)The sight of falcons, hawks and owls over the boardwalk will be unique, and I hope you’ll join me in wishing this program success.The county completed work this week to eliminate the southerly crosswalk at the signaled intersection of Eighth Street and Bay Avenue. Signage now directs pedestrians to use the northerly crosswalk — away from the path of cars taking left turns from Eighth Street onto Bay Avenue.I want to thank the county for working with residents and the city to make this modification, minimizing the risk to pedestrians using the intersection.The Ocean City Police Department started patrols this week and issued summonses to a small number of people drinking alcohol on the beach.As I’m sure all of you know, Ocean City has been a dry town since 1879, and drinking alcohol on any other public beach in New Jersey also is illegal.The problem is that far too many people believe this law applies to everybody but themselves, and it has gotten out of hand.People have become increasingly brazen about openly ignoring this ordinance. Police ask beachgoers to know and respect the law. They will continue to enforce it.The Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority will host an information session and Q&A regarding the county’s project to replace/rehabilitate its wastewater pipeline underground along the county’s stretch of Bay Avenue between Eighth Street and 31st Street.The meeting will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 17 at the Howard Stainton Senior Center within the Ocean City Community Center at 18th Street and Simpson Avenue.I encourage all residents and everybody who travels this stretch of Bay Avenue to attend.Work will begin after Labor Day and will require detours throughout the off-season. See more information on the meeting.Warm regards,Mayor Jay Gillian Mayor Jay Gillian
Scottish Bakers, the newly rebranded Scottish Association of Master Bakers, has appointed Irishman Alan Clarke as its new chief executive.The former chief executive of the Wholesale & Retail Training Council of Northern Ireland, worked most recently as national director NI for Lifelong Learning UK, and replaces Kirk Hunter, who is now at Dairy UK.Clarke aims to go out and about immediately, meeting members to ensure their views are heard. He said: “We want to put together a range of services that add value in the next couple of months.” President Alan Stuart said Clarke’s strengths in the area of training and fund procurement – working with the major bakeries in Northern Ireland – should serve them well. He added: “He responded very well to being a champion for our craft. Scottish Bakers believes it has found a voice.”>>SAMB reveals new corporate identity
Rumors about the planned “mega-festival” with classic rock legends like The Who, Bob Dylan, Roger Waters, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, and Neil Young continue to grow, as half of those acts releases teaser videos for the new event. While no formal announcement has been made, Waters, The Who, and Dylan all recently shared videos with the caption “October…” on Facebook.Watch the short videos below, set to the music of “Ballad of a Thin Man,” “My Generation,” and “Brain Damage”: The “October” teaser would line up with previous reports, suggesting that this festival is set for October 7-9 at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, CA. Roger Daltrey, lead vocalist for The Who, even confirmed the festival’s preparations in a recent interview. With these videos, it seems that the question isn’t “if” this event will be announced, but when.
Load remaining images No joke – the middle show of the three night run saw Umphrey’s McGee absolutely crush Milwaukee’s Riverside Theater in emphatic fashion last night. The show had it all: fan favorites, new songs, some more rare tunes, and some massive jams. It summed up in being an ideal Friday night show. The party was rocking and the UM was bringing it.“Padgett’s Profile” opened the show. A standard version of this uniquely placed tune started the night off proper. Resolution was massive and had two distinct jams, the second one teeming with energy. Newer song “Stinko’s Ascension” popped up in the middle of the set. It has only been played a couple times since debuting in 2015. Following the newer, rare song as the older, rare song “The Haunt.” This version was stretched out as well. Following the final refrain, the jam started with just drummer Kris Meyers and bassist Ryan Stasik. Joel Cummins then added to that mix, and before you knew it the whole band was raging it to a peak. What seemed like arguably the shortest version of “Cut the Cable” followed, and “Bad Friday” closed the set.The second set opened with a fiery “40s Theme” that found a very murky groove for the breakdown. The choppy chords played by Cinninger had the whole place dancing. “Bridgeless,” a tune that is frequently played at UM shows, sounded exceptional in between “Puppet String” bookends. A penultimate placement for “Divisions” was a nice touch for the set. The song itself had multiple teases and jams of “Simple Gifts.” A beautiful segue back into the frantic finish of “Bridgeless” ended the set. The encore was a real treat. “Mail Package” was a fun way to end the night, and if you weren’t listening closely, you may have missed the “Space Funk Booty” riffs in the song.Below is a gallery of photos taken by Daniel Ojeda.Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee | Riverside Theatre | Milwaukee | 3/31/17Set 1: Lord Bail Ship > Padgett’s Profile, Resolution > Anchor Drops, Stinko’s Ascension, The Haunt > Cut the Cable, Bad FridaySet 2: 40’s Theme, Puppet String > Bridgeless > Puppet String, Ringo, Divisions > BridgelessEncore: Mail Package unfinished with Simple Gifts (Joseph Brackett Jr.) teases with Space Funk Booty tease[setlist via all things umphrey’s]
As The Harvard Campaign demonstrates its early impact across the campus and around the world, the University announced today that $5 billion has been raised in support of this effort.That figure represents more than 300,000 gifts and pledges made to the campaign through the end of last year.“From increasing financial aid to supporting cutting-edge research and creating a campus for the 21st century, we are already seeing that this campaign is having an impact,” said Tamara Elliott Rogers ’74, vice president for alumni affairs and development. “The incredible generosity of our alumni and friends will make a difference for generations to come.”Publicly launched in September 2013, The Harvard Campaign is the first such effort that includes all of Harvard’s Schools. The campaign seeks to shape the future of education with a focus on University aspirations, including advancing new approaches to teaching and learning, attracting and supporting the best students and faculty, creating a campus for the 21st century, and supporting multidisciplinary research.Beyond campus, the campaign has also brought together Harvard communities around the world. The “Your Harvard” series has traveled abroad to London and Mexico City, and visited New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas. Thousands of alumni and friends have joined President Drew Faust to hear her vision for the future of the University and learn about the fields that faculty are exploring.This year’s stops will include Seattle (Feb. 23), Beijing (March 15), and Chicago (May 6), with more to come as the campaign continues in the years ahead.
JNCs reject plan for fixed number of nominees JNCs reject plan for fixed number of nominees July 15, 2003 Regular News Florida’s circuit and district court of appeal judicial nominating commissions have approved rule changes to conform to changes in state law, but rejected a proposal from the Governor’s Office about the number of nominees they should forward.Meeting at the Bar’s Annual Meeting June 26, representatives from all five DCAs and 14 of the 20 circuit JNCs rejected a proposed rule that would have required them to always send six nominees to the governor for each judicial vacancy.The JNC representatives did approve changes to conform their rules with changes made by the legislature in past years in the JNC process. Those included removing the Bar’s three appointments to each JNC, ending the public members appointed to JNCs, and acknowledging that all JNC members are now appointed by the governor. (The Bar does make nominations for four of those seats, but the governor makes the final choice.)The Governor’s Office had proposed the change to the rule on the number of nominations. Bush’s General Counsel, Raquel Rodriguez, said Bush wanted six names for each vacancy to improve diversity, adding it would give more opportunity to women, young lawyers, and minorities.But JNC representatives balked at that change. They said it potentially conflicted with the Florida Constitution, which requires that the JNCs send between three and six nominees for each vacancy. Another potential conflict, critics said, is with the JNC rules that set minimum standards for nominees. They noted there could be cases where a JNC cannot pick six nominees who meet the standards.Members also complained there are cases where a potential candidate might meet the minimum standards, but is far less qualified that those who make the list. Adding those less qualified individuals just to bring the list up to six would be wrong, they said.A final argument was JNC members know local candidates better than Tallahassee officials, and should be allowed to make their own decisions rather than try to reach an arbitrary number.Circuit representatives voted 11-3 to reject the proposed rule. The five representatives from the DCA JNCs tabled the issue, but all five spoke against it.Carol Licko, former general counsel for Bush, proposed an amendment that JNCs would send six only if they found six candidates who met the qualifications set out in the rules. The JNC representatives tabled that proposal.
“There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.” ~Henry KissingerThe very definition of crisis means something unplanned. Crisis communication is the scary part of public relations and communications. It’s chaotic. You don’t know all the details. People might be scared. And others want answers.I recently attended two sessions that have focused on crisis communication. They each focused on different aspects but there were three common concepts that seemed to keep appearing.Response Time.Acknowledge immediately and regularly. This is crucial. We used to have a couple of hours to respond, but not anymore. Social media has shrunk that time to 20 minutes or less. And time constraints will continue to shrink. Your organization needs to be on the proactive side of this, not the reactive. The last thing you want to happen is rumors and misinformation flooding social media and the news.Build bridges. Build bridges through relationships and through information.Relationships: Hopefully you already have the bridges built to media professionals, city officials and other community leaders. Have you built those bridges to your neighbors? Your tenants? Your members? Even your competitors can step forward in a crisis.Information: This is simply bridging information together. This works well when using social media. Here’s how it works: You post the latest information on Twitter or Facebook. Your next posts should either repeat the information (if there’s nothing new to say) or add new information to what is already known. The idea is that if the public were to scroll through your streams, they would have a good idea of what is happening, and how you are responding.Review your plan.Sounds like a no brainer, but when was the last time your plan was revised? Do the people listed on your crisis team still work there? Do you have templates already made up for all the scenarios? Most likely you have messaging about a weather disaster, a robbery and maybe even an internal embezzlement act. What about a possible data breach? Think of all the events that could be considered a disaster and draft talking points now. 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Susan Dyer Susan is the Communications Director for the Heartland Credit Union Association, the trade association for credit unions in Kansas and Missouri.

Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion While promoting his movie at the Cannes Film Festival, Spike Lee during a press conference launched into a profanity-laced tirade against President Trump. These vitriolic attacks have become common by the Hollywood community. It plays well in front of a leftist crowd like Cannes. But ultimately, his inflammatory commentary only exacerbates the divisive tone and further divides the nation’s political differences.The media will never challenge Lee to explain facts that contradict the narrative that Trump is a racist, such as the record unemployment of African-Americans and Hispanics, the huge drop in enrollment of the food stamp program or the increase in wages for the working class. These achievements are the opposite of the agenda of a white supremacist. Yet Lee and countless leftists continue to smear the president with this ubiquitous charge, while the media is happy to provide them with an unfettered platform.President Obama had the cool style and swagger that inspired millions to buy into his message of hope and change. But he failed to deliver any substantive results for the black community.For all his blunt talk and bluster, President Trump has delivered results that are making a positive difference in people’s day-to-day lives. The actions the president has taken to cut regulations and create jobs are much more significant than his clumsily spoken words that the media takes out of context in a concerted effort to paint him as a racist.William AikenSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationSchenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionsSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Schenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcy
