Beyond sports: Off-the-field after school activities to challenge your child

first_img From football to baseball,soccer and lacrosse, sports are what most parents initially think about when considering extracurricular activities for their children. However, today’s schools and communities understand there’s a need for diverse after school options that challenge kids in a variety of ways.“While participating in sports can have many benefits, to raise a well-rounded child it’s important to consider other afterschool activities that help them to develop different skillsets,” says Ellen Marks, educational expert and curriculum director at Bricks 4 Kidz. “Introducing a variety of activities helps kids have many experiences so they can discover their natural talents as well as improve areas where they may struggle.”These extracurricular activities are guaranteed to broaden your children’s horizons and provide them with plenty of fun and education:Nature: Because we live in such a digitized world, many school systems are now offering nature-based programs that teach important science and biology skills while instilling respect for Mother Nature. Check out these types of programs at school or through your local nature center. Scouts is another fantastic option with many nature-based activities.Theater: Many kids dream of becoming stars on their favorite TV shows, and theater experience is the first step in exploring that interest. It’s not just for high school students. Acting classes, musical theater and play production are all great options enjoyed by students with a wide-range of abilities.Help your kids grow important science, technology, engineering and math skills through STEM classes.STEM: Help your kids grow important science, technology, engineering and math skills through STEM classes like Bricks 4 Kidz. These group classes — available for kindergarten through middle school — use LEGO Bricks, gears, motors and more to build exciting projects. Students learn to work together and solve problems while creating something they can feel proud of.Music: Music afterschool activities exercise the brain in a variety of ways. Inherently creative, music is also very technical. Learning about notes, chords and music theory is mathematical in many ways. Explore choir, instrument classes and band camps to inspire your junior Mozart.Martial arts: Taekwondo (from Korea) and Karate (from Japan) are both great options for children. Classes offer physical exercise that improve balance and stamina, but parents enjoy many of the other benefits that often come from studying martial arts, including increased focus, discipline and respect for others.Cooking: With the expansive popularity of cooking shows, kids have never had more interest in what goes on in the kitchen. Sign students up for cooking classes and they’ll learn proper cooking technique and whip up some tasty treats in the process. Soon enough, you may be able to hand off one meal a week to your chef-in-training.Art: With the reality of many schools reducing or cutting art programs, exploring art education outside of the classroom becomes even more important. Kids love to create and there are a variety of art programs for the next Picasso or Rembrandt. Drawing programs are wildly popular, but also consider sculpture, pottery and mixed-media classes.Technical clubs: Today’s youth grow up with technology, so they have a natural inclination toward any activity that incorporates it. For example, robotics clubs are popping up in elementary and middle schools across the country. Check out Bricks 4 Kidz Jr. Robotics and Advanced Robotics classes where kids build a motorized model and watch it come to life using simple LEGO WeDo and LEGO Mindstorms EV3 software.

The client inherited an unattractive “McMansion” with poor spatial layout from his father. The house was designed to meet the tastes of the former generation. The site also featured a large pompous garden with extensive manicured lawns. The house was too big and expensive to maintain. The client wanted to restore the plot to a natural pine forest, and built a small home that fully engages with the surrounding landscape. An added bonus to the restored pine forest is that the client doesn’t need to mow any lawns! The new house and garden have been designed to meet contemporary tastes. Hence, this project represents generational shift in design ideology / ecology.Save this picture!© Marc GoodwinConceptThe house consists of three barns put together in a y shape. Each of the three wings possess a different spatial scale (width & height) to meet their individual functions and to create a sense of hierarchy. The scales change to always maintain a pleasant atmosphere. Because of the amazing location, perfect natural light conditions and vistas, the architect did not want to emphasize a specific view. The design concept allows an uninterrupted 245° lake-view. The daily functions of the house follow the cycle of the sun: meals starting with breakfast, evening socializing in the lounge, sauna and bed. Because it is situated on a windy site, the Y-shaped house concept provides protected yards on each side of the house.Save this picture!© Marc GoodwinThe house and the patio are raised to enhance the experience of the scenery. In doing so the scenery appears even more magnificent and imposing than it actually is. By building the living room as a canopy toward the lake the room appears to be floating above water (when viewed from the interior). You cannot see the shoreline of the plot from inside the living room. There is an exit from every room of the house, so in the summertime the interior and the exterior are truly one.Save this picture!© Marc GoodwinExteriorThe house was designed to possess a dual quality. From the side of the main entrance it appears closed, old and traditional (hopefully even a little bit shabby). On the other side, towards the lake, the house opens up with lots of glass and large patios. The wood used on the exterior is untreated so that it will turn grey over time. A goal was to design the exterior to appear scaleless. The important thing was to make the windows to appear as openings on the walls of three connected barns.Save this picture!© Marc GoodwinInteriorThe interiors are clad with a subtly whitened spruce to enhance the experience of the scenery. The concept of three inter-joined wings and extensive use of glass create a spatial flow inside the house. The cell like spaces of the bathrooms and bedrooms are introduced into the open interior space as boxes made of white plywood. This was done to enhance the illusion of an old barn that has been  converted into a contemporary house. Finally, as a traditional focal point in a home, a large black fireplace acts as the centerpiece of the interior.Save this picture!© Marc GoodwinSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Marc GoodwinProject gallerySee allShow lessB30 / KAAN ArchitectenSelected ProjectsOak Cabin / Out of the ValleySelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Iisalmi, Finland Projects “COPY” Architects: Arkkitehtitoimisto Teemu Pirinen Area Area of this architecture project 2016 CopyAbout this officeArkkitehtitoimisto Teemu PirinenOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIisalmiFinlandPublished on May 03, 2017Cite: “House Y / Arkkitehtitoimisto Teemu Pirinen” 03 May 2017.

Blogger’s detention prolonged illegally, two other bloggers arrested

first_imgNews Receive email alerts Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison RSF_en April 27, 2021 Find out more The blogger Dieu Cay should have been released yesterday or the day before on completing a two year jail-sentence, but he is still being held and has reportedly been transferred to a different prison. His wife was also briefly arrested. “The authorities seem to be seeking a pretext for keeping Dieu Cay in detention and are acting in a completely illegal manner,” Reporters Without Borders said. “He must be released without delay and the harassment of his family members must also stop.”Arrested on 19 April 2008, Dieu Cay was sentenced by a Ho Chi Minh City court on 10 September 2008 to two and a half years in prison on a trumped-up charge of tax fraud designed to silence a troublesome dissident.He had written about the protests accompanying the Olympic torch relay prior to the 2008 Beijing Games and was arrested just before the torch was paraded through Ho Chi Minh City. He had been under close police surveillance since taking part in protests at the start of 2008 against China’s claim to sovereignty over the Spratly and Paracel Islands.Reporters Without Borders also calls for the immediate release of two other Vietnamese bloggers who have reportedly just been arrested.One of them is Phan Thanh Hai, who is also known by the blog name of Anh Ba Saigon. The police reportedly arrested him at his home on 18 October, seizing three computers. He is facing a possible four-month jail sentence on a charge of “propaganda against the state,” according to his wife. She quoted the police as say he was arrested for posting false information in his blog, in which he writes about Vietnam’s territorial disputes with China and the bauxite mining being carried about China in Vietnam. He has also expressed his support for other Vietnamese dissidents.A series of hacker attacks on dissident websites, including the site of To Hai, a famous composer who became a dissident, is also currently under way. Reporters Without Borders condemns the increase in these cyber-attacks, which are designed to sabotage websites that tackle sensitive issues.Vietnam is ranked 165th out of 178 countries in the world press freedom index that Reporters Without Borders released yesterday.

Traffic corps garda avoids criminal conviction

first_imgNewsLocal NewsTraffic corps garda avoids criminal convictionBy admin – November 8, 2012 676 Linkedin IN HIS judgement, Judge O’Kelly said: “Mr O’Shaughnessy has paid €3,500 through the court poor box. This follows my findings on September 13 that his motor car was used on two occasions in May 2011 with neither tax nor a valid NCT.“AT the time of the hearing, the loss of revenue to the State was €64. I suggested the amount be paid to the court poor box.“Mr O’Shaughnessy comes before the court entitled to be treated in a manner similar to any other accused person and can expect to have his case disposed of by me in a consistent fashion.“In the range of offences which the court must deal with, these are at the lower end of the scale and are matters that would not ordinarily  excite the attention of the national press and media.“The distinguishing feature of this case is the nature of Mr O’Shaughnessy’s employment. He is a serving member of An Garda Siochana. He is attached to a specialist unit, the traffic corp, and as such has a particular responsibility to enforce compliance with the very laws that he has been in breach of.“It is safe to say that in this or any other week, dozens of people find themselves before the court on similar charges. Their cases are imposed of one way or another without the offenders becoming a national news item.“The public may have little sympathy for Mr O’Shaughnessy’s plight. Indeed many who might consider that his actions were borne out of an arrogance, which of his employment, may simply say ‘how dare he’ or ‘serves him right’.“I must however consider the matter in a more reasoned way. Mr O’Shaughnessy omissions may not be the result of arrogance and misguided belief that he was above the law but he may have more to do with momentary oversight, casual carelessness or temporary financial pressure.“People find themselves in such situations all the time and very often for a first offence get a gentle but firm warning form a detecting garda to get their house in order.“Even if such a humane warning is given but ignored, and the matter appears in court and the deficiencies attended to, a garda may ask the court to strike out the charges.“Such an opportunity was not afforded Mr O’Shaughnessy. Indeed, unusually for a traffic violation, he was not asked for an explanation of the matter until the following Autumn when it appears the allegations were first put to him and no explanation was given for this delay.“Mr O’Shaughnessy was questioned about the matter after the detections. People cannot be expected to recollect what they were doing at a specific time on a  given, but otherwise uneventful date, with the same degree of precision that they might have if questioned within hours or days of the detections.“Mr O’Shaughnessy was left to rely on reference to his work diary in which his duty rostering had been written up in advance. People make mistakes and recollections often become less accurate with the passing of time.“Indeed it became evident during  the course of cross-examination that the prosecuting inspector had made a mistaken entry in his own notebook as to the time of detection of the offence on May 9. I mention this not to embarrass the inspector in any way, but simply to highlight that errors in recording and recollection do occur.“Persons appearing before the court must be treated fairly and consistently. Those found to be driving without tax or NCT attract penalties that could not be regarded as excessive or unreasonable.“Certainly their employment is not put in jeopardy. There would understandably be public disgust if such an exceptional and unwarranted result flowed from such a conviction yet in this case, Supt Flavin has stated to the court that a conviction will result in disciplinary action and have implications for Garda O’Shaughnessy’s career.“It is not the court’s business to interfere with an internal garda disciplinary matter, but I must have regard to what Supt Flavin has told me. I also note from the prosecution that the State acknowledges that Garda O’Shaughnessy is a highly experienced officer with an exemplary work record. He comes before the court with no prior convictions. I am told he is a married man with a young family.“Mr O’Shaughnessy has been embarrassed, humiliated and ridiculed. He has been identified and shamed nationally for an offence for which others could expect total anonymity or, at worst, local notoriety. His house has been daubed with the most obscene and vulgar graffiti. His wife and family are entirely innocent and there should not be familial association.“He has been financially punished by my directing a poor box contribution of €3,500 which is a severe, if not excessive, penalty but intentionally disproportionate to the penalty other persons receive. Mr O’Shaughnessy has paid that sum in the legitimate expectation that I would act consistently, and treat him the same as I would all others I have requested poor box contributions from. Accordingly, in all the circumstances and having considered the mitigating and aggravating factors of this case, it is fair and equitable to strike out these charges.” Print JUDGE Eugene O’Kelly has struck out two motoring offences against a serving member of the Limerick Garda traffic corps after a payment of €3,500 was made to the court poor box. Garda Michael O’Shaughnessy was found to have driven his car on two occasions in May 2011 without valid tax or NCT certification adjacent to Henry Street Garda Station where he is stationed. Having found the facts of the case proven at Limerick District Court in September, Judge O’Kelly deferred judgement until the end of October to allow the defendant make a payment to the court poor box.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up At last week’s sitting of the court, Mr O’Shaughnessy avoided criminal conviction after receipt of the payment to the Society of St Vincent de Paul was shown to the court.Defending solicitor Dan O’Gorman said that after the initial hearing, Mr O’Shaughnessy’s house had been targeted with graffiti. It had since become a security issue at his home. He requested that his client’s home address would not be published again.Judge O’Kelly said that Garda  O’Shaughnessy’s employment had attracted “national press and media attention”.

Making friends, building dreams

Hernandez said it was on a field trip to Georges Island that she realized her group had united. “On Day 1, I didn’t think it would happen, and it did,” said the Texas native who moved to the U.S. from Mexico at age 6. She recalled that her childhood summers at camp helped her advance at school. She hopes to teach high school when she graduates from Harvard. 10Angelo Cruz (center) makes new friends while playing a game. 2Kevin Nguyen, 9, says goodbye to his mother after boarding the Harvard shuttle.

The seven-week program for refugee and immigrant 6- to 13-year-olds now living in Dorchester gave the children morning ESL classes at the Richard J. Murphy School, and afternoon field trips to places such as the Water Country theme park, the Mary Baker Eddy Library, and the harbor islands.College and high school students, among them camp director Thang Diep of Harvard, led the Phillips Brooks House Association program.“Many of these campers immigrated to the U.S. around the same age I did,” Diep said, a College junior. “They remind me how difficult it was learning English and trying to keep my Vietnamese roots at the same time. This is why BRYE means so much to me. It is so rewarding to work with young people who remind you so much of yourself and your experiences.” 6Counselor Steven Espinoza ’20 leads a group on a field trip to the Boston Children’s Museum. 5BRYE director Sophie Eakins, a Wellesley student, greets camper Thanh Nguyen. 12At the bus stop, Kevin Nguyen translates information about the BRYE program for Khang Nguyen’s grandmother. 9A pulley exhibit captures the attention of Shifau Oyemala (from left), Johnathan Nguyen, Jordan Nguyen, Reezahnny Veiga-Rodrigues, Ha Thanh Dang, and Austin Aguilar. 3Willy Nguyen, 6, dances in the aisle. 20Lia Michelle Campusano (from left), Ha Thanh Dang, Shifau Oyemala, Mia Werner, Reezahnny Veiga-Rodrigues, Johanot Pierre, and Khoa Ho perform a song and dance at the final show.last_img read more
