first_imgFacebook156Tweet0Pin0Submitted by SideWalkToday, SideWalk volunteers helped their 1,500th participant escape homelessness and move into a safe place to call home.“This is a big thing,” said Phil Owen, Executive Director of SideWalk. “People on the streets rely on SideWalk as the fastest path to leave homelessness behind, and we’re proud to have served so many people. We did this because of our committed team of volunteers and strong community support, and I want to thank them for keeping us going.”SideWalk’s Rapid Re-Housing program, started in 2012, helps on average about 300 people per year move into a new home. It offers advocacy, support, and small amounts of short-term rental assistance to help people experiencing homelessness overcome financial barriers to moving in to a safe place to call home. Roughly 80% of the people served via SideWalk’s Rapid Re-Housing program are still off the streets one year after placement. Currently, accounting for all costs such as direct cash assistance and overhead, it costs SideWalk on average $1,047 to help one person experiencing homelessness escape the streets – period.Indicating its continued improvement, SideWalk volunteers helped their 500th person escape homelessness in September 2015, after 3 years of operations. 4 years later, SideWalk volunteers helped another 1000 people.“We won’t rest on our laurels, though,” Phil Owen said. “While we’re proud of our accomplishments, we know the need for our work will continue. If you’re experiencing homelessness, SideWalk volunteers are here to help.” People experiencing homelessness can visit http://walkthurston.org/gethelp to learn more about SideWalk’s work and how their volunteers help.last_img read more

Month: August 2020 The Washington Center Presents Dan + Claudia Zanes

first_imgFacebook12Tweet0Pin0Submitted by the Washington Center for the Performing ArtsGRAMMY Award-winning children’s performer Dan Zanes and Haitian-American jazz vocalist Claudia Zanes perform Dan’s greatest hits as well as folk and blues classics from their popular new songbook, “Dan Zanes’ House Party!” A Family Roots Music Treasury. This sensory-friendly performance is “relaxed,” creating a comfortable and highly entertaining environment for families and audience members with a wide range of needs.The following is an excerpt from Dan + Claudia Zanes website: Since our very first Dan + Claudia Zanes concert at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music in October 2016, we’ve been working with presenters to make our shows sensory friendly whenever possible (which has been most of the time).What Makes a show sensory friendly are conditions that make the concert experience comfortable for more people.  It’s a way of opening the door wider and inviting a broader range of communities to the party.In theatrical performances, sensory friendly means a designated show that is specifically for people with autism. Some performing arts centers call these performances “relaxed” and invites anyone who wants a relaxed environment to experience the art.However, when we say sensory friendly we’re indicating that all are welcome. Our goal is to create an environment that’s as inclusive and accessible to everyone. The audience that has always felt comfortable and welcome at our shows is invited as well as people with diverse sensory needs.We’ve heard over and over from parents of children with disabilities that their child’s responses in public spaces can lead to uncomfortable situations in which they feel judged or unwelcomed. Sensory Friendly performances are a way of saying “come as you are, we’re all in this together.” We’ve seen firsthand how moving it can be when families who might not generally mix are able to enjoy music together. Once we experienced this there was no turning back!Tickets on sale now on the Washington Center for the Performing Arts website.DATE: Sunday, January 12TIME: 2:00 p.m.VENUE: Washington Center Main Stage512 Washington Street SECOST: Tickets: $21 $16 $14 $11For more information about upcoming events please visit Washington Center for the Performing Arts website or call the Box Office at 360-753-8586.last_img read more

Month: August 2020 Sports India Exclusive with Anthony Amalraj: Use hypnotherapy to train my mind to react…

first_imgAdvertisement 3y9NBA Finals | Brooklyn VsczWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E9sce( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) vl4xWould you ever consider trying this?😱cy0zCan your students do this? 🌚dv919Roller skating! Powered by Firework Anthony Amalraj needs no introduction in the world of Table Tennis. The 34-year old veteran won a gold medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games held in Gold Coast, Australia.Advertisement Currently ranked No. 100 worldwide and is behind A Sharath Kamal (No. 31), G Sathiyan (No.32) and Harmeet Desai (No. 72), and No. 4 in India. Amalraj is spending his time wisely under the current state-imposed lockdown because of the Coronavirus outbreak. The Arjuna awardee has played alongside some of the best table tennis players in India.Sports India Show had the opportunity to chat with Anthony Amalraj, where he talks about different aspects on Table Tennis and how important it is to maintain mental fitness apart from physical.Advertisement 1.) How are you dealing with the lockdown? Is it frustrating to you?The first month of the lockdown was good because there was a lot of tournament last year. I played nearly 17 to 18 international tournament and then the national ranking tournament and I was very much tired as well, So I was able to spend my time at home resting and reading.Advertisement But now the lockdown has lasted almost more than two and a half months, so it’s getting difficult now because for the first time in my life I am staying at home for more than two months and not even stepping out of the house, So it’s really very difficult.But I have started training and I have a small gym at my home, So I have been working out. For the past three to four days I have also started practicing table tennis as well.2.) What sort of training have you been doing indoors?I have a bicycle, cross trainer at my home and it is very beneficial for the core. For table tennis, we have a lot of tournaments, the intensity is very high, we have a tournament every week. So for the last two years, it was very difficult for me to focus on fitness because we need a gap as well to recover and if something goes wrong with our techniques, we need to work on that as well. The ranking system in table tennis has also changed for the last two-years. Previously it was very different as we can play an international tournament when we need to and keep our rankings better, but now we have to play every week and every ten days we have a tournament.  So the last two years were really tiring for me and I wasn’t able to work on my specific techniques. So I have been utilizing the time under lockdown for the past two-months to improve myself. 3.) You work extensively with a hypnotherapist, can you tell us how it has helped you and if you would recommend other athletes to use their services as well?We always ask questions like why China is better than us at sports. The thing is they’re advanced in every aspect be it fitness, nutrition, coaches and mental fitness. But when I was young, like before 15-20 years, it was like play more, more, more… But for the last 10 years, the trend has changed and we are focusing more on technique. Before it was quantity training and we got better coaches, training and we improved our knowledge, but now after our understanding has improved and we have developed, we are now focusing more on qualitative training. But now for the last five years, we are focusing more on physical training. However, even after all this, there’s an important aspect that needs to be looked at and that is mental fitness. For example, to keep our body healthy we have to eat food everyday and workout to remain physically fit. But in all this, we forget about our mental health because everything is from the mind. Yoga and meditation can only give us temporary relief. Before the match, many players used to meditate, but that will only work for you up to a particular stage. In sports, an athlete has to be ready for numerous situations. For example, in Table Tennis, when a game is 3-all 10-all, I cannot think what my mind is thinking or how I am thinking or how I am reacting, and at that particular point in time, I cannot change and everything that I do should happen automatically. For that, I have to train my mind, and with hypnotherapy, my mind is already prepared for this pressure moment. The mind works very deeply and goes into the subconscious stage. In pressure stages, I used to lose matches but then I realized that I was doing good on the table with the technique, my fitness was excellent, but I felt that I was lacking somewhere. Even yoga and meditation weren’t helping, so this hypnotherapy is like going to the subconsciousness of the mind and changing everything….whatever the negative thoughts are, or how you’re approaching the situation.So you can see in the last ten years, my performance has gotten better, be it the CWG, Asian Games or other international tournaments. For me, it took a little time to reach that stage, but I have been getting better.4.) You started the year great as you broke into the top 100, tell me about that feeling? How does it feel to be counted amongst the 100 best Table Tennis players on the planet?It is everyone’s dream. For example, at first, I was aiming to become a National champion which I became, then I was aiming to win a CWG medal and I won and then the Asian Games medal which also I won. But today there’s so much fluctuations happening in the ratings. In 2017, I was in the top 70 and I was playing so good and suddenly my peak has gone down and I stumbled back to 120. However, in the last one and a half years, I have been struggling with the rankings. If the old ranking system were in use, I would definitely be in the top 60 for sure. In the last two years, I have been consistently winning against the better players but with the change in the ranking system so many players are suffering.But even after that, breaking into the top 100 gives me motivation. I cannot say satisfaction because if I am satisfied by being in the top 100 I won’t get better. My last tournament was Qatar opens and it’s a platinum tournament. There I was the only Indian to qualify. There I defeated the No. 53 and No. 65 ranked player there and eventually lost to world No.6 ranked player. I cancelled the decision to play at Oman Open because the Coronavirus situation was getting serious and I didn’t want to take any risk. Had I played that event, my rankings would have improved to No. 85 or something.5.) Prior to the Coronavirus saga, you were riding on a hot streak having won two medals at CWG 2018 and a Bronze at Asian Games and were en route to the Olympics. Do you feel the lockdown has affected your momentum? Once the lockdown eases, how early do you feel you can get your flow back?If you see every player has been affected by the lockdown. So If I go through some problems, other players are also getting affected by this. There are thousands and thousands of players going through the same situation. However, it still differs from players to players. For example, I have started service practice and from next week onwards, I will start playing for 45 minutes to an hour and then I will increase the intensity. I have my own club as well, but given the current situations, it’s important to take care of the people coming to the club as well. However, at this time it is important for the mind and heart to not get broken. This Coronavirus situation has been a problem for the last three months, but there are instances where the players get injured and have to undergo surgery and they have to remain out of action for seven to eight months. However, after coming out of long hiatus, they are able to perform at their very best. So a three months coronavirus lockdown shouldn’t be an excuse for loss in momentum.5.) Most casual fans often have this question about Table Tennis doubles player, how do you guys choose your partner? Do you guys train alongside numerous people and chose the ones you are most comfortable with or is there any other procedure?It’s about whoever you feel comfortable with. Whoever players we get better with or develop an understanding of the game. Before I was playing with Sarath, but nowadays, I am playing more with Sathiyan Gnanasekaran. So his game and my game is very similar…Like I enjoy playing near the table, he also does the same. He plays fast like me and our mentality matches. Like even we haven’t trained together for a tournament, we play well because we have developed an understanding and play according to the situation that arises on the table. ALSO READ:Table tennis ace Sharath Kamal battles Coronavirus fears to win Oman Open    Advertisementlast_img read more

Month: August 2020 Pedestrian Safety Forum Monday

first_imgThe Two River Times will be addressing the issue of pedestrian and cyclist safety in a public forum to be held in at 7 p.m., Sept. 21 at Red Bank Catholic High School, 112 Broad St.
Red Bank and we urge every resident of the Two River area interested in this topic to attend.As a result of the Crossroads Initiative begun by the newspaper, a collective effort has resulted in safer streets but there is far more to be done. The Two River Times is delighted to report Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long has joined the group, broadening the towns we are focusing on to Red Bank, Fair Haven, Rumson, Middletown and now Sea Bright.Our state legislators Sens. Joseph Kyrillos and Jennifer Beck, County Freeholder Thomas Arnone, County Engineer Joseph Ettore, Mayors Pasquale Menna, Ben Lucarelli, John Ekdahl and now Dina Long, and police chiefs and representatives from each town, as well as stakeholders Riverview Medical Center, RiverCenter, Newport Media Holdings and several local safety groups should all be commended for their commitment to the topic.More needs to be done about educating the public about what’s legal and what’s not for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers as it pertains to crosswalks and cyclists and police officers from Red Bank, Middletown and Rumson will address those concerns in the beginning of the forum.We are also pleased to say Red Bank Catholic is a new stakeholder, will make a presentation about their Pedestrian Safety Initiative.The officials will also explain the “connector factor” of county roads.Three components of the Crossroads effort that have always been in the forefront are Education, Enforcement and Engineering.The Two River Times has taped pedestrians and cyclists on the roadways as well as tracked the speed of cars and found pedestrians, cyclists and drivers all break the law, some probably unintentionally because they don’t understand what they are required to do. This forum is not meant to blame but to improve things going forward.Much good has already been accomplished and we’d like to share that at the forum as well. For instance, the county’s engineering department announced the county is now studying the problematic intersection of Broad and Pickney where a 78-year-old woman was hit and killed across from Foodtown in Red Bank. The county is also expanding its study of Broad Street to Shrewsbury Avenue, which has few crosswalks and has a heavy population of pedestrians, drivers and cyclists. Traffic counts are beginning there this month. And enforcement is being beefed up with officers being trained now to specifically address this issue in Red Bank. The traffic light, however at Front and Broad, which signal drivers and pedestrians simultaneously to proceed, will not be changed now. The analysis by the county found having a “pedestrian only” time to cross would cause a boomerang effect on traffic in both directions and would negatively impact emergency vehicles headed to Riverview because there are no lanes for them to go around traffic.In Middletown, Police Lt. Neal Hansen said the intersection where a 15-year-old girl was hit and killed on Route 36 and Avenue D needs improvement and noted the long distance to the next crossing. Senators Joseph Kyrillos and Jennifer Beck have agreed to meet with the DOT about the matter to expedite the usually two to three-year wait for such a request. And the Crossroads group would very much like to see towns being given more latitude to paint crosswalks and make sensible traffic decisions without state approval. The Two River Times hopes to attend the meeting with the DOT and make it clear it supports the proposal.Freeholder Thomas Arnone also announced that an accord has been reached with Rumson and Fair Haven and bike lanes are being designated along portions of two county roads, Rumson and Ridge Road after a compromise for 50-50 sharing of cost and liability. And cyclist lanes will be established in Sea Bright.Fair Haven Mayor Lucarelli credited The Two River Times, Arnone, and state Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon and state senators Kyrillos and Beck for offering their support and helping broker the agreement.So, it’s clear the Crossroads effort is making an impact thanks to a collective focus to improve a community. We are just beginning and far more must be done, but we’ve made headway.And most importantly, we want to hear from you about areas of concern and solutions you have to offer. There is no registration or fee. Just come, learn, listen and identify problems and suggest solutions.Read more stories about the Crossroads initiative: Crossroads: Results of First Editorial Meeting About Pedestrian Safety in the Greater Red Bank Area March 12, 2015Cyclist Hit In Sea Bright September 10, 2015Yes Another Pedestrian Close Call in Red Bank August 13, 2015Penalties Must Be Stiffer For Leaving Scene and Inattentive Driving August 13, 2015Bike Paths Are Rolling Forward July 24, 2015Progress In Pedestrian/Cyclist Safety July 24, 2015Pedestrian Dies Following Accident July 1, 2015 78-year-old Pedestrian Struck on Broad Street in Red Bank, June 27, 2015Red Bank Streets Feared by Residents, Motorists, June 27, 2015Broad Street Pedestrian Accident Prompts Intensive Investigation, June 25, 2015Bicycle Lanes at Standstill As Two River Mayors and County Fail to Agree, May 22, 2015last_img read more

Month: August 2020 South Okanagan’s Vandeweghe dominated short course — Nelson’s Locke, Maly finish in medals

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsKirk Vandeweghe of Penticton usually cooks with the longer distance racers at the Nelson Cyswogn’Fun.However, the South Okanagan triathlete decided his sprint distance needed a little fine-tuning.After blazing over the Cyswogn’ Fun short course in near record time Vandeweghe can head back to the longer distance after capturing the short course title at the 2011 Nelson Cyswogn’Fun Sunday.Vandeweghe cruised over the 500-meter swim, 22-kilometer cycle and five-kilometer run in a time of one hour, eight minutes and 29 seconds. “I actually like to do a whole mix of triathlons,” Vandeweghe said from near the concession stand at Lakeside Park.“I think sprint really boosts your fitness. So I do tons of sprints, Olympics, half’s . . . they all sort of prepare for the next race.”Vandeweghe was almost six minutes in front of Nelson’s Peter Lock and eight ahead of Anthony Maley.I was really happy (with second),” Locke, using the Cyswogn’Fun as a cross trainer to prepare for another season on the cross-country ski scene as an elite racer.“This is only my second time ever racing triathlon so I’m very happy with my result.”Vandeweghe was first out of the water, first in the cycle before coasting home in second to capture the overall men’s short-course crown.“I think this is an incredible course,” Vandeweghe explained. “To think you can ride across the (Big Orange) bridge and run across the bridge twice is pretty cool.”For Locke, leaving the water in 13th spot, it was the cycle to Six Mile that allowed the Nelsonite to win the silver medal.Locke finished second behind Vandeweghe to edge up the leaderboard. He then pushed himself on the run to grab second.“I’m not as good at running so the final stage was the toughest for me,” Locke said. “And it’s tough to switch from biking to running because your legs are pretty tired, but it was a fun race.”A key for Locke in 2011 was learning the course layout. A glitch during his previous race cost the Nelsonite dearly.“Last year I went the wrong way and was disqualified, so this year made it to the (Saturday’s) meeting so that helped,” Locke said with a chuckle.Maley, first in the men’s 30-39 division, was seventh in the swim and bike stage before blazing the five-kilometer run in a first-place time of 20:54.Chad Badry of Nelson was seventh with other Nelsonites Shawn DeGroot 15th and Pierce Sharelove 16th.Allison Schlosser was the top Nelsonite in the short course, finishing 18th overall. Schlosser was sixth overall in the female category.“I had a good race,” said Schlosser. “I’ve never done a sprint distance before . . . I’ve only done the Olympic or Half, so it was really good.”“I thought I do something a little shorter where speed is a factor so things went really well,” she added.Stacy Bie of Quesnel won the women’s short course title in a time of 1:18.17.Darci Miller of Fort McMurray was second with Nikki Jomha of Victoria third.Karen Cambaliza of Calgary was fourth with Susanne Fraser of Rossland rounding out the top five.Swimski trio tops long courseTeam Swimski took the long course male crown with Last Minute Louie’s first in the long course mixed team race.Our Civic Duty was first in the long course female race.Short course team title went to McDucs Wedding Team with Team DeVries second and The Pickles third.sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img read more

Month: August 2020 Crunch time for Nelson Leafs, host Princeton, Bruins in doubleheader weekend

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr, The Nelson Daily SportsNo doubt after the New Year’s Eve debacle, the Nelson Leafs will be eager to get a positive start to 2012 when the club plays host to the Princeton Posse Friday in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action at the NDCC Arena.The Leafs completed 2011 with a stinker even the players had a difficult time stomaching, losing 3-2 to the Spokane Braves — the same team Nelson trashed 7-1 the night before, on the road no less.”It’s a new season and we’ve got to get ready for the stretch run,” Leaf coach Frank Maida told The Nelson Daily. “The players know for us to make a run we can’t take any games off and must come prepared to every game.”In the Posse, the Leaf face a big team ready to push the Leafs around. However, Maida said the Green and White must use their speed in the larger NDCC Arena to its advantage.”(Princeton) is a bigger team that play in a smaller arena, so we’ve got to use our speed to our advantage and wear them down,” he said.During the only meeting of the season between the two clubs, a 4-2 win by the Posse, the hosts jumped to a 2-0 lead four minutes into the first period — a lead the Leafs could not overcome despite out shooting Princeton 39-22.Princeton, 20-13-1, enter the game tops in the Okanagan Division with a one-point lead over Osoyoos Coyotes.In contrast the Leafs, are tied with the Posse in points but sit third in the Murdoch 15 points behind division leading Beaver Valley. Saturday, hosts the 1-34 Grand Forks Border Bruins.Both games have a 7 p.m. puck drop.ICE CHIPS: Leaf defenceman Julian Davis has decided to leave the team and return to his home in the Lower Mainland. In 13 games since joining the Leafs the 5’11”, 183-pound Davis had one goal. . . .Nelson will see a familiar foe when team sees Castlegar after the Rebels acquired Riley Henderson from the Golden Rockets in exchange for future considerations. In 27 games this season, 17 with Nelson, Henderson had 22 points, including five goals. . . .Leaf coach Frank Maida is working the phones trying to bolster his club before the January 10 B.C. Hockey roster deadline. However, Maida, with two open cards, is not thinking there will be too much action as Junior A and Junior B clubs have most rosters in place.sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img read more
