“These centers are illustrative of the University’s understanding that a whole person walks through the gates each day,” said Hausammann. “Our support of high-quality child care is really an investment in our families’ well-being, their engagement, and their productivity.”Driven by the need to make significant engineering and plumbing upgrades, the Harvard-financed renovations were also an opportunity to bring both centers up to the standards of contemporary best practices for child care. For example, offices and kitchens were reconfigured to facilitate supervision and improve the flow of activities.The reconfiguration also allowed for an additional classroom at HYCCC, adding new slots in the high-demand young-toddler-age group. “This is an exciting event not only because we are serving the needs of more families,” said Lapp, “but also because this event has been made possible through the spectacular support of Harvard’s community.” Lapp went on to thank the multiple units across the University that contributed to the success of the renovation.“This renovation has transformed our old space that was initially not intended for child care into a space that meets and exceeds all the state regulations and accreditation guidelines,” said Kaori Hattori, director of HYCCC. “And it beautifully reflects our center’s mission: a diverse, lively, and nurturing place to foster children’s growth as whole human beings, where parents and child care professionals work together. We are eternally grateful for what Harvard University has done for us.”Oxford Street Daycare Cooperative Co-Director Courtney Martell works with one of the children. There were no children at a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the reopening of two child care centers on Harvard’s campus in late April, but there was plenty of evidence of them: kids’ colorful artwork lines the walls and sand toys dot the playgrounds at Harvard Yard Child Care Center (HYCCC) and Oxford Street Daycare Cooperative (OSDC), which happen to be neighbors on Francis Avenue.Instead of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, dozens of adults filled the centers’ new classrooms. Members of the Harvard community were there to tour the renovated child care centers and to hear Marilyn Hausammann, vice president for human resources, and Katie Lapp, executive vice president, join the project team in formally inaugurating them.Glossy new tables enliven the recently renovated Oxford Street Daycare Cooperative. Six independent nonprofit child care centers operate on Harvard’s Cambridge and Business School campuses, together offering approximately 380 slots. In exchange for providing space and utilities, Harvard receives priority enrollment for children of faculty, staff, and students.

By Art PetrosemoloMonmouth Park is not just a mecca for horse fans, it’s a whole lot moreOCEANPORT – A summer visit to Monmouth County and the Two River area is not complete without a trip to Monmouth Park (MP). With a horse racing history that dates back to 1870, Monmouth Park, now, is not just a mecca for horse fans.In recent years, and in particular under private management since 2012, MP has and is refashioning itself into a family and entertainment destination. It has become a place where there are things to see, things to do, things to eat along with thoroughbred racing, what has always been called “the sport of kings.”ZaApproval – Red Bank StakesThe focal point of MP’s family events is Sunday Family Fun Day (Memorial Day – Labor Day). From noon to 4 p.m., with regular $3 grandstand admission, in the picnic area there is family entertainment including live music, clowns, pony rides, bounce house, face painting and games. Children under 12 enjoy free admission to the Oceanport track.Monmouth Park has built a 36-hole miniature golf course on the north end of the park. Daily, throughout the season, on race and non-race days, weather permitting, the course opens at 10 a.m. and stays open until 8 p.m. weekdays and 9 p.m. weekends.The famous racing dawn patrol is held each Saturday and Sunday starting at 8 a.m. beginning on the clubhouse apron. There is no charge for the program but make a reservation. It gives you an inside look of what racing is all about with a motorized tour of the backstretch, starting gate and jockey’s room. From Laurie Lane, you’ll learn about the life of a thoroughbred racehorse and how it trains to be a champion.Monmouth Park hosts a series of promotions on weekend race days including food festivals, wine tastings, an Irish Festival, jockey memorabilia sale, T-shirt giveaway, cigar luncheon, ladies day, crabcake cook-off, barbecue-craft beer festival and Oktoberfest, among others. Complete information on the track’s race and non-racing promotions and programs can be found on their website: www.monmouthpark.com.But don’t look to Monmouth Park just for miniature golf and entertainment… MP held its first thoroughbred race in 1870 and its modern history dates back to 1848 when thoroughbred racing was again permitted. Today, Jersey-bred horses and thoroughbreds from across the country gather for the 60-plus day meet at the Jersey Shore. The racing schedule centers around the weekend with Saturday and Sunday cards plus Friday action throughout the summer and some Monday racing.The track’s premier event is the annual Grade 1 Haskell stakes to be run this season on Sunday, July 28. The event has new sponsorship: William Hill Sports Betting has partnered with Monmouth Park to sponsor the event and be the track’s partner for a facility if the state’s plan to legalize sports clears federal objections. The Haskell brings many of the country’s top 3 year olds to the shore for this $1 million dollar purse. In the past, many of the season’s triple crown winners and favorites have raced in the Haskell.A mere stone’s throw from the beach, Monmouth Park is easy to get to for a day away from the hot summer sun or as an alternative to outlet shopping on days with no sun.

5 October 2015Nelson Mandela has been inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame for using rugby as an agent for social change in 1995 to help unite a nation.The ceremony took place at St James’ Park in Newcastle on Saturday, 3 October, before South Africa went up against Scotland in a Pool B match of the 2015 Rugby World Cup.World Rugby chairman Bernard Lapasset presented the Hall of Fame cap to South African Sport and Recreation Deputy Minister Gert Oosthuizen and Francois Pienaar, who captained the Springboks in 1995, when they won the world championships on home ground.“The World Rugby Hall of Fame recognises those who have made an indelible mark on our sport through feats on the field of play, displays of great character or through their tireless and inspirational work in driving forward our great game,” said Lapasset. “Mandela certainly fits in that category. He was instrumental in turning Rugby World Cup 1995 into a momentous occasion that united the South African nation through the power of sport.“By supporting the Springboks so passionately and publicly on their way to victory, Mandela helped to change attitudes, soften hearts and convince minds of the right course of history for his country to take and, in the process, became a wonderful example to us all.”He said it was a fitting tribute to a man who did so much for his country and the sport.See more here:“We accept this honour in the true spirit of human solidarity and building a new world order through sport,” said Oosthuizen. “May the Springboks see this as a motivation to win the World Cup. The Madiba magic still lives on.”His words were echoed by Sport and Recreation Fikile Mbalula: “World Rugby informed us of their intentions and plans to honour our global icon, a legend and father of our nation Nelson Mandela by inducting him on the World Rugby Hall of Fame.“It’s not by coincidence but by consistence that World Rugby decided to honour Nelson Mandela in Scotland which, its biggest city Glasgow, was the first to offer him its Freedom of the City.”Back in 1995As Mandela handed Pienaar the Webb Ellis Cup in 1995, he said: “Francois, thank you for what you have done for our country.”To which Pienaar replied: “No, Mr President; thank you for what you have done for our country.”Morne du Plessis, legendary South African rugby player and manager of Pienaar’s victorious squad, recalled that 1995 “was the start of the theme that sport has the power to change the world”.“If you think back on it, it changed our country. It had a lasting effect on how people could use sport to value each other and to come to understand each other a little bit better.“(It’s) now a legend, it’s become a film, it’s spoken around the world as one of the true miracle stories in sport and in the country. The fact that rugby can be such a powerful initiator of social change.”Next gameAfter beating Scotland 34-16 on Saturday, the Boks tackle the US in their next Rugby World Cup match on Wednesday, 7 October.SouthAfrica.info reporter
A start-up doesn’t make you an entrepreneur any more than idea does.Too many young people, enamored with and influenced by the great technology and social boom, mistakenly believe that being an entrepreneur is about the start-up culture. They think it’s about getting venture capital money with a slick idea, some technology, and a deck. It’s about hustling angel investors to fund the business from the start.They worry about the logo, the schwag, the parties, and identifying themselves as “serial entrepreneurs.”Worst of all, too many “could be” entrepreneurs think about becoming a unicorn, exit strategies, comparables, and getting rich quick.Be a Finish UpEntrepreneurship isn’t about starting up. It’s about finishing up.Entrepreneurs start real businesses. They believe in their business concept enough to go and get real customers and clients. They don’t ask people for money to test their idea. They get money from customers.Entrepreneurs bootstrap their growth by taking a pay cut, working for little money, and working long hours. They love the business enough to pour their heart and soul into it, putting it before anything and everything else.They’re not worried about impressing anyone with their logo, and they don’t buy schwag in an attempt to convince others that what they are doing is cool. The only people they want to impress are the people who will buy what they sell.Entrepreneurship is about selling, not about flipping a business. It’s about selling the product, service, or solution to the people who benefit from it. It’s about selling other people to join your team and helping you get the business off the ground. It may be selling the bank for a loan using your invoices as collateral, or signing personally and risking what you own.America needs more entrepreneurs. It doesn’t need more start-ups. We need more finish ups, real entrepreneurs who are interested in starting a real business they intend to lead and grow.
