MIAMI, Fla., September 19, 2022 /24-7 PressRelease/ — The Exit Planning Institute™, in cooperation with a collaborative team of Miami’s top advisors and market leaders, are joining forces to launch the Miami Chapter of Exit Planning Institute on October 14, 2022, hosted at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay, The Watson Island Ballroom (Floor 2), 1633 N Bayshore Dr, Miami, FL 33132. This local is different from many other professional networking organizations in the market . The PPE Chapter is cross-functional, meaning it attracts and engages advisors, experts, thought leaders, media and business owners from diverse backgrounds. These leaders engage in exit planning and value acceleration education that ensures local market continuity and improves success rates for transitioning businesses as owners look to their future.

As evidenced by the vast amount of recent research, including the State of Owner Readiness™ survey, the US landscape is poised to transform six million businesses over the next 5-10 years. Baby boomer business owners are retiring at a rapid pace, and these same owners own 66% of all businesses in the United States of America. According to recent research conducted by EPI, most baby boomer owners have failed to consider their ultimate exit transition. Statistics show that only two out of ten companies in the market are selling. Without proper planning, owners run the risk of getting a lower price than they need for their business or, even worse, not selling at all.

“Selling your business is arguably the highlight of your career. Planning and preparing for this process is key to reaching a beneficial conclusion for the business owner. There is a clear need to improve exit readiness, which is why I am excited to launch the Miami Chapter of the Exit Planning Institute alongside my esteemed partners. We will come together to cooperate with, support and educate business owners and their trusted advisors on how to optimize outcomes for all stakeholders during the exit process.

– Diego Obando, CEPA, AWMA, AAMS, President, Miami Chapter

Westside JCC will open “The Hive”, a new infant care center https://radicalphilosophy.org/westside-jcc-will-open-the-hive-a-new-infant-care-center/ Thu, 15 Sep 2022 06:59:26 +0000 https://radicalphilosophy.org/westside-jcc-will-open-the-hive-a-new-infant-care-center/

After years of planning, interrupted by a global pandemic, the Westside JCC Early Years Center has announced the opening of a state-of-the-art daycare center for children aged six weeks to two years. The infant care center – affectionately named “The Hive” – will meet the needs of young Jewish families who require safe, reliable and educationally focused infant care and will be the only licensed infant care program in a Jewish center in the city center.

“As a Jewish community center, our primary goal is to connect people and build community,” the WJCC executive director said. Brian Greene said. “Young families, by enrolling their children in the infant care center, will make deep connections to each other and to Jewish community life through strong family programming.”

Going far beyond a typical child care centre, The Hive – due to open this fall as a newly completed expansion of the Westside JCC Early Years Center – will offer a 3:1 infant-to-teacher ratio, highly qualified teachers and experts in child development, a crib and natural and ecological materials for children.

“By expanding preschool to meet the needs of families with infants, The Hive’s opening is a powerful example of individuals, board members, foundations and institutions coming together to support Westside JCC in response to a real community need”, Westside JCC Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors and Campaign Chair Amanda Johns Perez said.

On August 31, Perez was one of many donors, community members and Jewish community leaders who gathered for a milestone event celebrating the new infant center. Other attendees at the groundbreaking ceremony included the Chairman of the Board of Westside JCC Steve WallockCEO and President of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles Rabbi Noah FarkasChairman of the Board of Directors of the North American Association of the JCC, David Wax, and Director of Early Years for the Westside JCC Lawrence Friedman.

Delivering remarks on the Westside JCC’s impact and legacy, Wallock said he welcomes the addition of an infant care center to the Westside JCC’s already strong lineup.

“The Hive will provide working families with trusted child care in a Jewish-educational setting,” the JCC Board Chairman said. “This will create another opportunity in our JCC for families to connect with each other and with the Jewish community.”

Since 1954, Westside JCC has served as a thriving center for Jewish life, engaging and educating thousands of babies, children, teens, and seniors from all religious backgrounds and socio-economic and geographic boundaries of Los Angeles. .

Located on a 120,000 square foot campus in the heart of downtown Los Angeles – on Olympic Boulevard, just east of Fairfax – the Westside JCC serves the community by providing stimulating and innovative educational, cultural and recreational programs that promote a strong connection to Israel and Jewish life.

Over the years, it has also served as a temporary home for a number of synagogues, schools, and Jewish organizations, including IKAR, Progressive Jewish Alliance, and Shalhevet High School. It has long served as an inclusive meeting space for diverse Jewish populations, from observers to unaffiliated.

Jim Kerr will be honored by the State | News, Sports, Jobs https://radicalphilosophy.org/jim-kerr-will-be-honored-by-the-state-news-sports-jobs/ Tue, 13 Sep 2022 06:05:01 +0000 https://radicalphilosophy.org/jim-kerr-will-be-honored-by-the-state-news-sports-jobs/


COLUMBUS — A retired longtime local educator who founded the Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center is being honored by the State of Ohio.

The Ohio Department of Aging (ODA) will induct Jim Kerr of Lisbon, a professor of biology in northeastern Ohio for more than four decades with the Beaver Local School District, Columbiana County Educational Service Center and the Ohio Valley College of Technology, in the Ohio Senior Citizens Hall of Fame on Wednesday during a special ceremony at the Statehouse atrium. He is one of 15 to be inducted for a lifetime of contributions and accomplishments.

Kerr began teaching science at Beaver Local School District in 1971, passing on her enthusiasm for nature to her students. In 1977, a student brought Kerr a dead bird he had found. Recognizing the specimen’s educational potential, he kept the bird in a freezer while he worked to obtain a Federal Fish and Wildlife Permit, which would allow him to mount the bird and to use it for display. Although it was a long process, he was determined to finally obtain this license in 1981. He then procured an extensive collection of mounts and skins for use in biology classes and other science throughout his career.

As an extension of his teaching career, Kerr used the mounts and taxidermy skins he acquired for his class to found the Beaver Creek Wildlife Education Center (BCWEC). Additionally, he worked with local legislators and state officials to secure funds for additions to the BCWEC building. The new addition was completed and opened in 2011, with an additional hall added in 2017 to house the North American Wildlife exhibit.

In addition to Kerr, Rashid A. Abdu, MD, FACS, of Canfield, will also be inducted. By practicing surgery for decades and training new generations of doctors, Abdu has improved and/or saved the lives of countless patients in the Mahoning Valley. After age 70, he volunteered as a physician/surgeon with Mission of Love to the Mayans in Yucatan, Mexico at an orphanage clinic in Guatemala, Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, in South Dakota, New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. In 1994, Abdu lost his wife, Joanie, to breast cancer. With the help of Mercy Health, Mercy Health Foundation and a caring and generous community, Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center opened in 2011 and has become one of the top breast care centers from the country.

Abdu and Kerr will be recognized by their peers, Governor Mike DeWine, the Ohio General Assembly, the Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging and leaders of the Ohio Aging Network.

“I am honored to congratulate the newest members of the Ohio Senior Citizens Hall of Fame,” said Ursel J. McElroy, director of the Ohio Department of Aging. “This year’s inductees have a diverse range of experiences that they have used over their lifetime to contribute to their communities in meaningful ways. Among them are doctors, teachers, veterans, philanthropists, historians, musicians, actors, etc. But even though they may have different backgrounds, one thing they all share is a call to go above and beyond to help others. They each have had a profound impact across the state and are well deserving of this prestigious achievement.

The Ohio Senior Citizens Hall of Fame was established in 1977 to honor Ohios aged 60 and older for their accomplishments, their contributions to others, and the roles they play in their communities. Their stories are compelling and represent lifetimes of dedication, ingenuity, perseverance, kindness and compassion. This year’s inductees range in age from 66 to 101, bringing the total number of Hall of Fame members to 501.

The Ohio Channel will broadcast the ceremony live beginning at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. It can be viewed at: https://www.ohiochannel.org/live/special-events. Photos and full biographies of all 2022 inductees are available at https://www.aging.ohio.gov/halloffame.

A story with grapes | News, Sports, Jobs https://radicalphilosophy.org/a-story-with-grapes-news-sports-jobs/ Sun, 11 Sep 2022 06:31:56 +0000 https://radicalphilosophy.org/a-story-with-grapes-news-sports-jobs/

September is the month of harvest. I heard a farmer on the news say he expected the harvest to start in about a month.

Since I was born in September, I have had a history with grapes. I was always told that my mother was scolded when she was in the hospital. At that time, they stayed in the hospital longer than they do today. She was a nursing mother, what she ate and drank reflected in me. Someone brought him grapes. She ate them and I paid the price. The nurses knew right away what was going on. More grapes for mom!

I grew up in grape country, but never had any experience until high school. My high school French teacher owned a grape orchard. He came to pick us up on a Saturday and hired the French club to harvest his grapes. We had a lot of fun and picked up lots of grapes.

The grapes I’m talking about are called Concords. They are mainly used for eating and for juice and jelly. Every time I see a jar of grape jelly in the store, I wonder if the grape is from here.

My neighbors were pickers. Every spring and every fall they were busy. A truck picked them up early in the morning and brought them home every day. In the spring, they tied the vines so that the grapes would grow without interference from the leaves covering them. In the fall, they collected the grapes, then trimmed them after the harvest.

I knew about the process, but I never participated in it. When I worked for an agricultural publication, I had a personal view of the grape industry. In August I visited the farm and spoke to the farmer. Since nothing was happening in the fields at that time, he was free to give me information. We walked around the farm looking at the vines laden with grapes. I have gathered enough information to produce an educational piece.

Harvesting is when the sugar content is just right. It is known as brix. This is how farmers are paid. They are paid for the sugar content. Salary is something else that is unusual. Farmers are not paid until the following season. This creates a bit of a strain on the budget since the farmer has no idea what his rate of return will be.

That year that I visited the farmer, I had my first ride on a grape picker. It was fun. I wiggled and twisted so I could see the grapes falling into the cart. The picker gently shook the vines causing the grapes to fall. Were they all perfectly ripe? No, probably not, but the majority of them were at their peak. Since pickers are expensive, most farmers cooperate to minimize costs. The picker arrives at a farm and the grapes are picked. I got some good pictures while riding on the picker.

You certainly cannot confuse the smell of grapes. The air is filled with fragrance. It reminded me of home. We always smelled of grapes being made into jelly by the Bedford Company which was located near our high school. Eventually the factory was bought out by Kraft and a new factory was built across town.

My uncle worked there. He was able to show us around the facility. It was wonderful to see those bottles on the conveyor each filling up with the purple semi-liquid.

When I moved to Hickory Heights, I first cooked on a wood stove. There was no other cook in the kitchen. It was new to me. A neighbor brought me some grapes she acquired from a cousin who lived in Portland, NY. She asked me if I wanted to make jelly for her. Even though I was reluctant, I accepted. I had to keep the temperature of the stove constant enough to cook these grapes. I cooked these raisins and let them drain in a jelly bag. The perfectly clear purple jelly was perfect. I used wax to coat the jars she brought me. My family was happy because I was able to keep a few jars.

Incidentally, I’ve made a lot of jelly since, but on my new electric stove. It’s much easier to control the heat on that!

244 million children still out of school worldwide: UNESCO report https://radicalphilosophy.org/244-million-children-still-out-of-school-worldwide-unesco-report/ Mon, 05 Sep 2022 14:17:30 +0000 https://radicalphilosophy.org/244-million-children-still-out-of-school-worldwide-unesco-report/

According to data published by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), some 244 million children are out of school worldwide.

With 98 million children still out of school, sub-Saharan Africa continues to be the region with the highest percentage. It is also the only region where this number is increasing.

With 85 million people, the Central and South Asia region has the second highest percentage of out-of-school children.

A glimmer of hope

A more encouraging development is that the global gap between the percentage of boys and girls who drop out of school has been reduced, according to UNESCO data.

In 2000, the gender gap among children in primary school was 2.5 percentage points and among those in upper secondary school it was 3.9 percentage points.

Although there are no more discrepancies, there are still regional differences.

Less than 60% of Ukrainian schools adapted to children

In a similar vein, the director of the United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF, said on Thursday that four million boys and girls in Ukraine face an uncertain start to school.

Catherine Russell has just returned from a three-day trip to the country where she met teachers, parents and children who had been affected by the war, which is now in its seventh month.

Less than 60% of schools in Ukraine are declared safe and qualified to reopen after the conflict damaged or destroyed thousands.

Russell went to an elementary school that had been repaired after suffering damage in the early days of the fighting. Due to the capacity of the school’s bomb shelter, only 300 students – only 14% of the school’s pre-war capacity – could attend at any one time.

When it is deemed safe, UNICEF will work with the Ukrainian government to help children return to school. If in-person instruction is not an option, children can study through online or community-based alternatives.

But the Japanese government has not yet solved the problem of “comfort women”. The major problem in solving the problem is whether the “comfort woman” system was sexual slavery or not. The Korean Council has convinced international human rights organizations, American students, and many legislative branches of Western countries primarily using public testimonies of Korean “comfort women” that the “comfort woman system” was sexual slavery. International human rights organizations and Western governments have sent harsh resolutions based on international laws to the Japanese government to solve the problem of “comfort women”. Key resolutions include the Japanese government’s recognition of the “comfort women” system as sexual slavery, sincere apologies and compensation for victims, punishment of Japanese soldiers and officials responsible for setting up and operating the comfort women system, and educational measures. so that Japan does not repeat the crimes in the future. But the Japanese government has refused to take responsible action, saying the comfort woman system is not sexual slavery. My lecture focuses on the following four elements: (1) providing the background information, (2) demonstrating that the comfort women system is sexual slavery, (3) summarizing the judgments of international human rights organizations on the “comfort women” system as violations of international law. , and their recommendations to the Japanese government, and (4) showing the Japanese government’s refusal to take responsibility.
