IBM awards $10,000 grant to DREAM mentoring program

first_imgGlobalFoundries,IBM has awarded the DREAM mentoring program a $10,000 Catalyst Grant to develop an environmental education program using the organization’s 50-acre property bordering the Metcalf Pond in Fletcher Vermont.IBM is awarding Catalyst Grants in recognition of its 100th anniversary. The grants support IBM employees applying their professional skills to volunteer projects with schools or community organizations, or that demonstrate a connection to a local, sustainable issue. IBM is awarding 100 Catalyst Grants of $10,000 worldwide in 2011.The DREAM program (Directing through Recreation, Education, Adventuring and Mentoring), matches college student mentors with students from affordable housing communities.  DREAM, with central offices in Winooski, VT, uses a community mentoring approach it calls ‘Village Mentoring,’ which empowers a group of college student mentors to engage both individual students and the entire community of children and families. This project supports DREAM’s goal of building a sense of caring for community, environment and self for the children they serve through the use of unique outdoor experiences, summer and winter camps, trips and community events.  The IBM grant will enable DREAM staff and IBM volunteers to create a new environmental curriculum at DREAM’s facility in Fletcher, Vermont. The goal is the development of a ‘hands on’ curriculum to teach the students about the watershed, its associated water cycle, and impacts on the quality of the water system. Designated areas and signage will help educate the students about brooks, marshes, vernal pools and the pond, and key water resources on the property will be sampled and interpreted by the students.To develop the program, DREAM staff and IBM volunteers will create a global positioning system (GPS) map of the property. Volunteers will identify key areas and install interpretive signs. The program will incorporate components of an IBM-designed student activity kit called “Clean Water Difference’ which discusses the importance of watersheds and the environmental, societal, and economic tradeoffs faced when making decisions that affect water quality and quantity.The IBM grant also will help DREAM redesign its web site and create a web page that will provide access to the environmental curriculum and allow students to upload the water quality data they gather as part of the program.In recognition of its 100th anniversary IBM is providing $12 million in grants worldwide during 2011 to schools and not-for-profit organizations where IBMers volunteer, including the IBM Catalyst grants. In addition to the Catalyst Grant to the DREAM program, in July IBM announced a $100,000 IBM Centennial Grant for an energy efficiency initiative to help HowardCenter and Vermont Technical College reduce their energy use by at least 5 percent annually. That grant is one of eleven IBM Centennial Grants awarded by IBM to projects around the world ‘ one of only two in the U.S.About DREAM:  for more information about DREAM, please visit http://www.dreamprogram.org/index.htm(link is external)About IBM:  For more information about IBM’s Centennial, please visit http://www.ibm100.com(link is external) BURLINGTON, VT, September 7, 2011 ‘ IBMlast_img read more

US Hospital Ship Arrives In Panama On Humanitarian Mission For Latin America

first_imgBy Dialogo May 26, 2009 it is good to visit areas where people do not get any medical services. thanks to all doctors team who regularly visit them and respect their profession in true manner with true services to all. The US Navy Hospital Ship “Comfort” will dock next Monday, for the purpose of conducting a humanitarian assistance mission throughout the Caribbean, Central America and Colombia. Representatives from the Panamanian Ministry of Health (Minsa) and from the U.S. Embassy in this country indicated today during the press conference that the ship will be anchored in the Port of Cristóbal in the city of Colón, in the Panamanian Caribbean. The primary objective of this visit, which was conducted for the first time in 2007, is to provide free medical assistance and to improve some of the health infrastructure of this Central American country. The “Comfort” will have a crew comprised of 925 members from France, Canada, Holland, Spain and the United States; 121 of the crew members are physicians, each one of them being able to examine up to 60 patients each, as explained by the Southern Command’s Surgeon General and Ship’s Captain, Miguel Cubano. The ship, which will be in Panama for 7 days, is 275 meters long, has 12 hospital wards and the space capacity for up to 1000 hospital beds. According to Cubano, all types of general surgery, pediatric and orthopedic operations will be performed on the ship, except for neurosurgical interventions and vascular surgery. Last April 1st, the ship “Comfort” set sail from Norfolk, Virginia (Unites States), and it visited Port-au-Prince (Haiti), Antigua and Barbuda, and afterwards it went from Panama towards Colombia, El Salvador and Nicaragua. The Clinical Supplies Director for the Panamanian Ministry of Health, Mario Rodríguez, stated that the ship did not come to Panama due to the increase in the number of cases of Influenza Type A. “The arrival of the ship is a coincidence, an activity that we had been coordinating for several months before the epidemic occurred. It did not happen because Panama had requested the US help with the influenza epidemic. It just arrived in a moment of humanitarian emergency,” Rodriguez said. In 2007, the American vessel conducted a mission throughout 12 Latin American countries, where more than 169,000 patients were assisted and 1500 operations were performed. A total of 20 million dollars was earmarked in order to cover the expenses of this two year mission, according to information provided by the US Embassy.last_img read more

What channel is Capitals vs. Blues on today? Time, TV schedule for NHL’s opening night 2019

first_imgNHL hockey is back, and the action kicks off with an exciting matchup between two champions.The defending Stanley Cup winner St. Louis Blues will face off against the 2018 Cup champion Washington Capitals in their season opener Wednesday. Before the game, the Blues will raise their Stanley Cup banner to the rafters and look to pick up where they left off last year. In the meantime, the Caps will look to start their season on the right foot after a disappointing first-round exit at the hands of the Carolina Hurricanes in April.St. Louis had a relatively quiet summer until a blockbuster trade took place in the final week of training camp, where they acquired puck-moving blueliner Justin Faulk in exchange for longtime Blues defenseman Joel Edmundson and several other pieces.MORE: Watch NHL games with fuboTV (7-day free trial)With a stronger backend, also featuring the likes of Alex Pietrangelo and Colton Parayko, as well as Jordan Binnington between the pipes, St. Louis has a stronger defense, but also one that can serve as a catalyst for more offense moving forward, especially with Faulk now in the mix.In the meantime, Washington was relatively busy, but in a different sense —  it spent the offseason strengthening the bottom six to add more secondary scoring with Richard Panik, Garnet Hathaway and Brendan Leipsic now a part of their offensive arsenal, replacing Brett Connolly and Co.With more stability and depth on the forward lines, Washington also made changes to the defense corps, trading Matt Niskanen to Philadelphia in exchange for Radko Gudas while also relying on young defenders in Jonas Siegenthaler, Tyler Lewington and 19-year-old Martin Fehervary.Still, the Capitals will have to make do against a tough Blues team without the services of Evgeny Kuznetsov, who was suspended for three games for “inappropriate conduct” after testing positive for cocaine in the summer, and Michal Kempny, who is still recovering from a torn hamstring he suffered in March against the Tampa Bay Lightning.Here’s more on how to watch the second game of the 2019-20 NHL campaign, including the time, TV channel and full opening night schedule.What channel is Capitals vs. Blues on today?TV channel: NBCSN (national)Live stream: fuboTVThe game will be featured as part of NBCSN’s “Wednesday Night Hockey.” Viewers can also stream the game on fuboTV, which offers a seven-day free trial.NBC’s hockey broadcast will again be led by NHL commentators Mike “Doc” Emrick (play-by-play) and Eddie Olczyk (analyst), who are on the call for Capitals vs. Blues, along with Brian Boucher inside the glass.Capitals vs. Blues: What time is puck drop?Date: Wednesday, Oct. 2Start time: 8 p.m. ETWednesday’s game is set to begin at 8 p.m. ET.
