College hosts academic skills workshop

first_imgFor the eighth year, the College will host an Academic Skills and Strategies Workshop series, which aims to teach students effective study techniques and methods.Senior Fiona Van Antwerp said she implemented many of the strategies she learned through the Academic Skills and Strategies program. Accordingly, she has noticed a significant difference in the quality of her work.“I learned so many important skills about how to study and compile information and how to budget my time and how to ask the right questions,” Van Antwerp said.The series is run by the director of the Office for Student Success, Diane Fox, who said she hopes the program helps students to not only learn the proper skills and techniques for earning the best grades possible, but also to maintain academic consistency throughout the semester.“There are five topics offered in this year’s series,” she said. “All workshops are 30 minutes long, and each topic is offered at least three different times so that students may choose a time that is most convenient with their schedules.”Fox said her goal is to always find new information and strategies tailored to the different personalities of each student, since creating a personal study plan can be a new skill for students seeking ways to improve their performance.Van Antwerp said she discovers something new in each workshop.“Every workshop is drastically different, so the information and techniques you acquire from one workshop isn’t necessarily the same as what you learned the last time,” she said. “Sometimes I’ve experienced that I even pick up on the same concept differently each time.”Van Antwerp said these workshops benefit students from all majors, so she hopes everyone will give them a chance.“I would encourage all students to attend because everybody learns things differently, which is what makes these workshops so unique, as it caters to all types of learning styles,” she said.Fox said most times students are too shy or embarrassed to ask for help and guidance in their academics or to admit that they are struggling.“When a person asks for help, they do so out of strength rather than weakness,” she said. “To take the initiative and ask for help shows that you are dedicated to your success and dedicated to your own well-being.”Fox said she facilitates a study tables program that requires students to sign in and do homework or study in designated areas on campus for at least four hours per week between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.“A key part of this program is to allow for a space where students are able to come and assign a particular time of the day to do work,” Fox said. Fox said the comprehensive goal of these programs is not only to instill academic skills, but also life skills that can be carried with students throughout their lives and future careers. “It teaches you responsibility for yourself because we have to empower ourselves to learn to advocate for ourselves so that we can take care of ourselves,” Fox said. “The sooner we realize and achieve these goals, the happier we’re going to be, and the more successful we will be too.”Tags: Academic Skills and Strategies Workshop, office for student success, Study tableslast_img read more

Chase perfection to catch excellence in talent development

first_img 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pembroke Since joining CUES in March 2013, John Pembroke has played a leadership role in developing and launching a new direction in CUES’ strategy, branding and culture. Under his guidance, CUES … Web: www.cues.org Details In a recent episode of the CUES Podcast, host James Lenz asked me if there might be a quote I try to live by professionally. James, our manager of professional development, lives near Green Bay, Wis., and cheers for the Packers. He knows that I’m a huge fan of the rival Chicago Bears, so we both understood the significance of my responding with this quote from legendary Packers coach Vince Lombardi:“Perfection is not attainable; but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.”Lombardi was a great coach, and this is a great quote that applies to many things in business, including talent development. Here are three steps to applying it to the learning that must be going on in your credit union to keep you competitive:Make plans. Football teams chasing excellence need bench strength—both a plan for who will play when star athletes can’t and a strategy for how to ready those players to step in. Similarly, credit unions need to develop a succession plan for the CEO, all staff and the board. This should involve identifying “high potentials,” who will likely be able to develop into managers, leaders and board officers. Finally, credit unions need a plan for providing the needed learning resources to everyone on the team; having a CUES Unlimited or Unlimited+ membership will support this.Develop your people. Becoming a star football player takes practice. Becoming a credit union leader takes practice, too. Developing your people isn’t only about formal learning sessions. It also can come from mentoring, special projects or assignments, online learning, reading useful content, and networking, both through online forums like CUES Net and during onsite education programs.Assess progress. As the old business adage goes, you can’t manage what you can’t measure. CUES members can leverage the new CUES Learning Portal to track staff and director learning. It’s also a good idea to do regular performance appraisals for staff, the CEO, the board as a whole and even for individual directors.Plan-develop-assess and then repeat is a great process for chasing perfection in developing talent. I hope it helps you catch excellence.last_img read more

Authorities: Great Neck Cardiologist Wanted Rival Doctor Killed

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York What began as a seemingly routine prescription pill investigation into a Great Neck cardiologist spiraled into a complex probe into a brazen murder-for-hire plot allegedly targeting a former business partner-turned rival doctor, authorities said Wednesday at a press conference announcing the bizarre Gold Coast feud.The 54-year-old cardiologist at the center of it all, Dr. Anthony J. Moschetto of Sands Point, was arrested Tuesday and charged with various crimes, including conspiracy, arson and criminal solicitation. Investigators discovered illegal guns and a cache of weapons, including ornate swords, daggers and axes, as a part of the probe, authorities said.“It’s unusual for an investigation to reveal such a wide array of crimes being committed by an individual who is seemingly respected by the medical community,” said acting-Nassau County Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter. Moschetto, Krumpter added, “was exposed as a deplorable, despicable criminal.”Two men—41-year-old James Kalamaras of Suffolk County and 43-year-old James Chmela of Selden—whom Moschetto allegedly solicited to destroy his rival’s office building at 38 Northern Blvd. in Great Neck in February were also arrested Tuesday for arson, authorities said. Both Chmela and Kalamaras were also charged with burglary while Chmela was additionally charged with criminal possession of a weapon and criminal sale of a firearm.Medieval-style weapons seized by police during a murder-for-hire plot investigation involving a Gold Coast doctor and his rival. (Rashed Mian/Long Island Press)On the same day he was arrested, officers executed a search warrant at Moschetto’s home, which allegedly revealed a cache of weapons—many of them illegal—located in an apparently secret room behind a motorized bookcase that only opens when a switch is activated, authorities said.The five-month investigation, which is still ongoing, began in December when the Drug Enforcement Administration, after receiving a tip, became suspicious of unusually high prescriptions of oxycodone coming out of Moschetto’s Great Neck office, authorities said.“The investigation led to the discovery of a common link between this contraband and a then-unsolved Feb. 25 arson in Great Neck, and even a subsequent murder-for-hire plot that was foiled by this investigation,” acting-Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas said Wednesday.Moschetto “was the supplier and mastermind behind this elaborate scheme,” Singas added.Authorities said they found a cache of weapons at a Great Neck doctor’s Sands Point home while executing a search warrant on Tuesday, April 14. (Rashed Mian/Long Island Press)Authorities said Moschetto and the intended victim had a business relationship and worked out of the same office.The seemingly conventional probe sparked a multi-agency investigation that authorities said also uncovered an illegal drug distribution scheme and put the brakes on the trafficking of illegal weapons.Moschetto was arrested after he was seen on video allegedly soliciting an undercover officer to murder a competing doctor, officials said. Investigators were also able to link Moschetto and the two other defendants to a failed arson attempt at the rival doctor’s office building, authorities said.No one was injured and the blaze caused minimal damage to the building because the fire was set directly below the office’s sprinkler system. The fire was extinguished quickly and Nassau County fire officials were able to obtain evidence from the scene, authorities said. At the press conference, authorities displayed surveillance photos of the arson as it was in progress.Authorities did not say why the relationship between the two doctors soured, but once it did, Moschetto moved his practice to 370 Northern Blvd. in Great Neck. Investigators also revealed that the intended victim filed a harassment complaint against Moschetto with Nassau police.“[Moschetto] wanted to put him out of business so he could get his business,” said Anne Donnelly, deputy chief of organized crime and racketeering bureau, and an assistant district attorney.The DEA’s investigation began in December with the first of six undercover drug buys, which continued until last month, the district attorney’s office said. More than 400 oxycodone pills were sold during that time as well as 198 bags of heroin, the DA’s office said. The probe also led to a more recent sale that included two assault rifles and heroin.After the alleged arson attempt, undercover officers overhead a conversation that connected the office fire to the guns and pills, Donnelly said.One of the items seized by police in the investigation of a Great Neck doctor involved in an alleged murder-for-hire plot. (Rashed Mian/Long Island Press)Discussion of the alleged murder-for-hire plot began after the failed arson attempt, authorities said. Moschetto was allegedly prepared to pay the supposed hit-man $5,000 to assault the doctor bad enough that he’d have to be hospitalized for several months and $20,000 to kill him. Moschetto, authorities said, gave a confidential informant and the undercover officer blank prescriptions and cash as payments. Guns were also offered as payment, officials said. At one point, Moschetto allegedly broached the topic of assaulting the victim’s wife if she was present during the encounter.Prosecutors said Moschetto frequently see-sawed between having his competitor injured or killed.“At the time of Dr. Moschetto’s arrest [Tuesday], his instruction had most recently reverted back to the commission of an assault against his victim,” the DA’s office said in a press release.The collection of weapons seized by police seemed better suited for a Hollywood thriller set: daggers decorated with hissing dragons, dragon-winged double-sided axes, demonic-handled knives, and blade-protruding brass knuckles similar to the claws that shoot out of the hands of “X-Men” comic hero Wolverine.“I can’t imagine what evil this man has already committed and what evil he planned in the future,” Krumpter said.Moschetto, who was also charged with criminal sale of a firearm, criminal possession of a weapon, burglary, criminal sale of a prescription for a controlled substance, was expected to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon at First District Court in Hempstead. His attorney’s information was not immediately available.last_img read more

US Coast Guard urges those providing relief to take caution before heading to the Bahamas

first_imgWhile the US Coast Guard is extremely grateful for all the support from individuals and agencies who would like to lend a helping hand in the Bahamas, they are also issuing caution to those who are planning to make the trip themselves to deliver food and aid.Chris Haarer, the USCG auxiliary division commander wants the public to consider the facts before making the trip so that those who decide to go, don’t end up needing aid themselves:“Not only will there be no gas, but there’s no lodging, no food, no electricity, there’s probably very limited cell coverage,” said Haarer.“We certainly would like to discourage this and have everyone think ahead just think about all the destruction that’s taken place and what’s not available to the general citizen as they go over there,” Haarer continued.While the Coast Guard says they can not prevent people from going over to the Bahamas at this time, they did recommend that those who are considering making the trip, also check to make sure they will have all they need when they get there, including safety materials, a contact, food, water, and extra gas.If you can not insure these measures for yourself, consider donating to another agency such as FEMA, The RedCross, or Walpol who each have set ups in the area.Officials say they have also increased inspections for boats coming into inlets along the Florida Florida specifically checking for those attempting to relocate Bahamians without proper documentation.For more on safety tips and requirements contact the US Coast Guard via (305)415-6869.last_img read more

Mourinho, Guardiola Re-enact Rivalry in Manchester Derby

first_imgOne of the bitterest rivalries in European football-Manchester United and Manchester City will today go head-to-head in the Premier League at Old Trafford. The Citizens have emerged a very strong force in English football since it was bought by Sheikh Mansour, and have transformed from being ‘noisy neighbours’ to true champions. The Citizens had actually won the Premiership twice and runners-up on two occasions in the last five seasons, beating the Red Devils to the title in 2012/13 season. An interesting twist to this encounter is the Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola factor, both having been ‘sworn enemies’ during their time in the Spanish La liga. After both went their separate ways (Mourinho back to Chelsea and Guardiola to Bayern) they’ve both only met once—in the European Super Cup. But as fate would have it the two gladiators have now pitched their tents at Manchester to continue their rivalry. It is however a game for the neutrals to enjoyManchester United welcome Manchester City to Old Trafford today in a derby match that sees opposing managers Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola renew their rivalry in the 135-year-old challenge between the cross-town rivals. United have made a fantastic start to the season, winning all three of their matches so far and Mourinho has not only galvanised the mood around the club, he has also transformed United on the pitch.The Red Devils are much more proactive now and are playing with a lot more urgency and will cause a lot of problems for City’s unsettled back four if they can continue their impressive attacking form.Moreover, Mourinho will have most of his first team players fit for the encounter; the only worry for the Red Devils is their Armenian midfielder, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who is a major doubt for this game.Meanwhile, Manchester City have been unstoppable this season, but this is their first real test. Guardiola has managed to outsmart Mourinho more often than not in the past and will look to do the same this weekend.However, Aguero’s suspension is a major blow for the away side and would be forced to start the inexperienced Kelechi Iheancho against the impressive duo of Bailly and Blind.Furthermore, Otamendi and Stones have shown that they are prone to a moment of madness and coming up against Zlatan, it could be a defining factor.Star midfielder De Bruyne is still adapting to Pep’s methods and has not performed too well so far, but Raheem Sterling seems to have rediscovered his form and could be a key man for the away side.The second match of the day will see Arsenal host Southampton in a crucial game Week 4 encounter at the Emirates Stadium. After a tough start to the season, the Gunners gained momentum in the last game week as they defeated Watford 3-1 to register their first win in the season.Southampton on the other hand are yet to secure a win as they drew two matches and lost one against Manchester United.Arsenal are all set to welcome two of their newest members Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez into their starting XI. Both the players were bought on the transfer deadline day to bolster their squad.Mustafi’s arrival will strengthen their backline which was looking extremely weak until last weekend and Arsenal fans will be eager to watch Mustafi-Koscielny combination at the heart of defense.Arsene Wenger may also hand Lucas Perez his debut against Southampton. Alexis Sanchez was the stop-gap striker for Arsenal in the last match against Watford, which clearly indicates that the manager has lost faith in French international Olivier Giroud.Southampton custodian Fraser Forster is currently suffering from a minor hand injury but he is expected come back before the match. Other than that Claude Puel does not have any injury worries and is expected to field his best possible side.Meanwhile, Liverpool will play their first home game of the season this weekend and will look to start off with a victory. The Reds have had a mixed start to the campaign so far. An outstanding win over Arsenal was followed up by a shock 2-0 defeat against Burnley, but Jurgen Klopp’s men did well to get a point in their last game against Tottenham.The German will be hoping his side can improve at the back when Leicester come to town. Despite their poor start to the season, the Premier League Champions have a solid attacking unit and will exploit Liverpool’s defensive frailties.Apart from Sheyi Ojo, Joe Gomez and Ragnar Klavan, Liverpool will have a fully fit squad to choose from. Loris Karius is back in training and could make his Liverpool debut against the Champions at Anfield.Mamadou Sakho is expected to be on the bench as well. Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho might struggle for match fitness and Milner should keep his place at left-back.However, Leicester City have had a poor start to the season so far and will be hoping for a positive result at Anfield this weekend.Claudio Ranieri’s side lost their opening game against Hull City and then drew against Arsenal in their first home game of the season.The champions impressed during their 2-1 win over Swansea in the last game and will look to carry that momentum into the Liverpool game.Leicester’s club record signing Islam Slimani is in line to make his debut today. Kasper Schmeichel had a hernia operation during the international break and new signing Ron-Robert Zieler is expected to replace him in the starting lineup.United Team NewsMarouane Fellaini picked up a back injury during United’s dramatic 1-0 victory over Hull before the international break.Mourinho seemed pessimistic about his prognosis but he has reportedly recovered and is expected to be in contention for a place today.Luke Shaw is less likely to take part having been withdrawn from the England squad last week as a precautionary measure.Henrikh Mkhitaryan also picked up a knock on international duty with Armenia and the player himself admitted on Twitter that he was not sure whether he would be fit in time for the derby.City Team NewsSergio Aguero will begin serving his three-match ban after the FA upheld his conviction for violent conduct. The Argentinian striker caught Winston Reid in the throat with his elbow during City’s 3-1 win over West Ham. Referee Andre Marriner did not see the incident and the FA handed Aguero the ban as a retrospective punishment – City appealed but it was unsuccessful.Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan both made it through a 50-minute practice match at the City Football Academy during the international break and are pushing for debuts.Vincent Kompany also played that game but having been out since May, he is unlikely to be thrown into the pressure cooker of derby day.Match OfficialsReferee: Mark ClattenburgAssistants: Jake Collin, Steve BennettFourth official: Mike DeanMourinho Vs GuardiolaJose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola will face off once again today but for the first time in a Manchester derbyKey StatisticsMourinho and Guardiola have a much-storied rivalry that dates back to when they first met in 1997.However, they did not clash as managers until 2009 when Mourinho’s Inter Milan drew 0-0 with Guardiola’s Barcelona.They have in total faced each other 16 times, with Pep triumphing seven times and Jose just three.They contested one of the biggest derbies in the world – El Clasico – and in those the Barca boss was generally victorious too, winning five of the 11 and losing just two.Both sides come into the game in the very best of form with 100 per cent records in the Premier League so far this season, but in truth neither has been properly tested.United have not lost at home since a 1-0 defeat to Southampton on January 23 and were unbeaten at Old Trafford in all but two matches.What the Managers SayJose Mourinho“I was in Spain for two years, in a league with Pep where the champion would be me or him. There, the individual fights made more sense because they can affect the outcome of the title race. In England, if we were to only focus on Guardiola and Manchester City and he were to focus on me and Manchester United, there would be another team to become champions. My experience does not allow me to be naive.”Pep Guardiola“I still haven’t seen Manchester United play, so now I have 10 days to see United, Borussia Monchengladbach and other teams.We have to make an amazing performance to win at Old Trafford. I can imagine the atmosphere. I am looking forward to living that experience. Hopefully, they (City’s players) come back with no injuries and in a good mood and we can do it.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
