SMC office helps women SPARK businesses

first_imgThe Saint Mary’s Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative (WEI) has opened its application process for the fourth session of SPARK, an eleven-week entrepreneurship training program for women in the greater South Bend community.  SPARK 2013 will take place from March 5 to May 16, and participants can choose between morning and evening classes, which run for three hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  “Since we started in 2011, the SPARK program has really grown,” WEI project director Martha Smith said. “We started with just one session a year and then moved up to two. Inaugurating the evening classes will allow more women to apply for the program. This way we can help spark more businesses.”  The program is dedicated to assisting low- to middle-income women in the community gain more business knowledge on how to become entrepreneurs, Smith said. Each woman applies for the program with a business idea and if accepted, she expands her business plan so it can become a reality.  Juli Turrell, who works as a realtor with Kaser Realty in South Bend, is one of this year’s applicants. Turrell said she wants to open an alternative therapeutic center in the community.   “A friend told me about the program and it seemed like a perfect fit,” Turrell said. “I would like to be an entrepreneur, but there is just so much that I do not know. I hope to be accepted into this program so I can get my business up and running within the next six to nine months.” The SPARK program is modeled after a San Francisco non-profit called the Women’s Initiative, Smith said. Both programs include intense training sessions on topics like marketing, break-even points, mission statements, business plans, stress management, networking, record-keeping and loan information.  “SPARK has three phases,” Smith said. “First we begin with the screening sessions, and then we move to program acceleration or the 11-week training sessions.  “However, we do not stop there. The third phase is ‘rekindling the flame’. Participants must attend monthly meetings and we provide mentorship for up to a year after the training sessions are finished.” Smith said the greater South Bend community has played a significant role in funding the SPARK program. The main sponsors for the program are First Source, PNC Bank, NIBSCO and Key Bank, as well as small donors from the community. “The beauty of this program is that it’s Saint Mary’s College facilitating a program sponsored by a group of members in the community,” Smith said. “It is from the community and for the community.” Since its first session in 2011, Saint Mary’s has collaborated with the Notre Dame Clinic Law Center to help participants have a better grasp on the legal aspects of owning their own business. Clinical professor of law James Kelly oversees his third-year law students at the center, helping to draft and review contracts, advise and represent clients on leasing, employment and other regulatory compliance obligations. “While we represent both nonprofits and for-profits, the small business clients referred to us from SPARK are a highly valued part of our client base,” Kelly said. “The women receiving business training and mentoring from SPARK are starting interesting and exciting new ventures that benefit greatly from the legal advice and representation that our certified law interns provide.  “The center is very proud to support SPARK’s mission of making our local economy more inclusive and fostering the creative energy of the women of our community.” Smith said she is thankful for the clinic’s work and believes this collaboration will only improve the program’s 55 percent success rate. “Our SPARKlers have been very successful,” Smith said. “They have started bilingual daycares, catering services, fitness centers and those are just to name a few. Not only do they leave with the spark to start their own businesses, but each woman blossoms and leaves with increased self-confidence.”last_img read more

Wisconsin to welcome Duke to Kohl Center in top-five matchup

first_imgAfter a successful weekend in the Bahamas where the Wisconsin men’s basketball team won the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament, the Badgers head back home for what is considered the most highly anticipated matchup in college basketball so far this season.No. 2 Wisconsin (7-0) will take on No. 4 Duke (7-0) in a top-five battle at the Kohl Center Wednesday night as a part of the annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge.The matchup is headlined by two preseason All-Americans in Wisconsin senior forward Frank Kaminsky and Duke freshman forward Jahlil Okafor. Both players are at the top of the list of National Player of the Year candidates and the matchup between the two stars is sure to be most of the talk as tip-off approaches.Despite the talk and the hype around the two All-Americans, Kaminsky and Wisconsin are keeping their heads straight and focusing on the team’s main goal: to win the game.“This game isn’t about me. It’s about our team,” Kaminsky said. “I want to win more than anything and don’t really care what happens with me as long as we win.”Even though the team result is the only one that truly matters, it doesn’t mean the matchup down low should be ignored.Okafor, who is projected by many to be the first overall pick in next year’s NBA draft, is off to a hot start that rivals that of Kaminsky. The freshman from Chicago and former No. 1 recruit in the class of 2014, according to ESPN, is averaging 17.7 points and 7.9 rebounds per game through Duke’s first seven wins. On the other hand, Kaminsky is averaging 16.6 points and 8.7 rebounds per game for the Badgers.With the numbers being nearly identical, it’s no wonder these two are all the talk heading into Wednesday. And from what Okafor has done thus far, it’s no wonder he’s at the top of everybody’s draft boards.“You can put names on guys, McDonald’s All-American Player of the Year, Freshman Player Of The Year, but [Okafor] backs it up,” Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan said.Not only has Okafor backed up the hype surrounding his play, but Duke as a whole has been living up to and in some ways exceeding any preseason expectations as well. Through seven games this season, Duke is scoring 90.4 points per game while only allowing 59.1 points per game.So, while Okafor will be Wisconsin’s main concern Wednesday night, Duke has plenty of other players that will be able to step up, including senior guard Quinn Cook and freshman forward Justise Winslow who are averaging 15.6 and 13 points per game, respectively.“Coach [Ryan] has been watching a lot of film; we’ve been watching some film,” Kaminsky said. “Hopefully we’ll just be able to pick up on small things that we might be able to do to neutralize [Okafor] and some other guys on their team.”With both of Wisconsin’s guards out due to foul trouble against Georgetown last Thursday, Bronson Koenig came off the bench and tallied 14 points to help lead UW to the 68-65 win. Hayley Cleghorn/The Badger HeraldThe Badgers, however, will have a supporting cast that goes beyond Kaminsky that will compete with Duke’s role players. Sophomore forward Nigel Hayes, who has arguably been the most improved player in the entire country, is averaging 13.6 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. Junior forward Sam Dekker is not far behind him, averaging 12.7 points per contest.But Wisconsin’s supporting cast goes well beyond the Badgers’ front court and even the team’s starters. In fact, this past week in the Bahamas, it was the first two players off the bench who shined for the Badgers after a couple players were plagued with foul trouble.In Wisconsin’s semifinal game against Georgetown, it was sophomore guard Bronson Koenig who came off the bench and scored 14 points with starting point guard Traevon Jackson and redshirt senior guard Josh Gasser in foul trouble for the entire game. And in the championship against Oklahoma, it was redshirt senior Duje Dukan who scored 13 points after filling in for Kaminsky, who sat nearly the entire first half with two fouls.“That’s what I think makes us pretty tough,” Dekker said. “We have a lot of guys that can come in and play big minutes and fill in for guys that need a break or are in foul trouble.”In a game where two of the country’s elite teams are going up against each other, it will be important for both Wisconsin and Duke to bring more than just their frontcourt stars if either wants to walk away victorious.“Whenever you can play against good competition like that, I think it raises your level of competition as well,” Dekker said. “It’s going to be a battle.”The Badgers will take on the Blue Devils in a primetime matchup at the Kohl Center Wednesday night at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN.last_img read more

KIJHL opts to put ‘development’ back into league; Leafs open training camp Friday

first_imgThe calendar may have played a big part in the decision, but the brain trust of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League will want to take the credit for pushing for more “development” of hockey players after deciding to reduce the number of regular season and playoff games during June’s Annual General Meeting in Osoyoos.Despite some opposition, owners overwhelmingly voted in favour — 18-2 — of reducing the number of regular games from 52 to 47.Leafs Head Coach and Director of Player Personnel Mario DiBella was, and always has been, a proponent for less games and more practice time, voted in favour of the reduction, which also sees rounds two and three of the playoffs now a best-of-five series instead of seven-game sets.“We voted in favour of reducing the schedule,” said DiBella as the Leafs prepare to open training camp on the 2016-17 season Friday at the NDCC Arena.“This is a development league and we have players either in high school or college travelling all over the place to play games on a Tuesday and Wednesday night when there really isn’t that many fans in the stands.”The reduction means no need for teams to jam mid-week games into the schedule to complete franchise commitments.Instead, teams have the lion’s share of games being played on weekends — like Nelson, which has 20-plus games slotted into Friday and Saturday night.At the same time, the league decided to play a conference only schedule, meaning hockey fans in Nelson will not see any teams from the Okanagan/Shuswap during the regular season.Owners opted for the unbalanced schedule to save significant dollars in terms of travel while at the same time allow for established rivalries to grow even stronger.DiBella believes this move was not necessary. “We could still could have played those teams in the other conference but teams decided against it,” he said.The Leafs, playing five of eight games away from the Heritage City in September, begin the season on the road September 9th in Fruitvale against Beaver Valley Nitehawks.Nelson opens the home season Friday, September 16 at the NDCC Arena with the Spokane Braves providing the opposition.The Leafs play mostly on the road during the first four months of the season, before getting a solid taste of home cooking in January. Fact is Nelson plays 10 straight at home, starting with the New Year’s Eve contest against Beaver Valley and stretching to February 5 against Castlegar Rebels.The final game of the season for Nelson is February 18 when the Leafs visit the Grand Forks Border Bruins in the Boundary City.Playoffs follow, with the KIJHL Champion being crowned before the April 6-9, 2017 Cyclone Taylor Cup is hosted in Creston by the Thunder Cats.Leafs Training Camp Begins FridayKeeping with the quirky season, Nelson Leafs host its training camp in mid-August instead of the traditional Labour Day Weekend.Leafs coach Mario DiBella, taking to the ice this weekend, decided to make the change due to the crazy start to the KIJHL season.The change also guarantees the Leafs a full camp, as players will want to use the ice time to prepare for upcoming Junior A Camps.“The camp is full,” DiBella said. “We’re really excited with the talent we’re bringing in which should push the returning players.”Camp, under the guidance of DiBella and Coach and General Manager Sean Dooley and Assistant Coach Isaac MacLeod, runs Friday through Sunday at the NDCC Arena.Nelson’s first exhibition game is Tuesday, August 30 at the NDCC Arena against Castlegar.Game time is 7 p.m.last_img read more

Chimp-Human Genes Evolved Much Faster Than Expected

first_imgIt’s been all over the news lately – human DNA shows surprisingly divergent regions from chimpanzee counterparts.  The Houston Chronicle, for instance, summarizes the find:Searching across the four genomes, the team looked for regions of DNA about 100 letters long that had made the biggest leaps. One, they found, had changed nearly twice as much as any other region, with 18 letters of DNA different between humans and chimps. A similar stretch of chicken DNA, they found, has all but two letters in common with the chimp DNA.The evolutionary explanation is two-fold: (1) this region of human DNA must have evolved 70 times as fast as other parts, and (2) the lack of evolution between chicken and chimp for this region must mean that “this region of the DNA had been stable for a long time, hundreds of millions of years.”    See also Medical News Today and Associated Press report on NC Star News.We just claimed yesterday that “Darwinian evolution is so malleable that it bends itself to every anomaly, and therefore fails” the scientific criteria of testability and verifiability (08/21/2006).  Here’s another example.  Rather than wear sackcloth and ashes and moan and wail over their sins, they spin this story into support for Darwin.  Now they expect to believe that these genes sat there undisturbed for hundreds of millions of years, only to explode into activity after Bonzo’s kid had a mutation, and presto! philosophy.  Gong; next.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Is Enterprise 2.0 A Crock?

first_imgIT + Project Management: A Love Affair 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Is Enterprise 2.0 a crock? Where are the use cases? Seven enterprise managers spoke about five principles that are emerging around this topic at the Enterprise 2.0 conference today in San Francisco.Moderated by David Berlind, the group, all members of the 2.0 Adoption Council, looked at five issues to answer the question.Topics addressed:Workforce TransformationBusiness Process OptimizationIntellectual Property/Privacy/ComplianceReligious Wars (technology/generational bias)Bottom Line Business BenefitsPanelists:Greg Lowe, social media architect and program manager at Alcatel-LucentBruce Galinsky, director of IT, MetLifeBryce Williams, social media consultant, Eli LillyJamie Pappas, manager, social media, EMCMary Maida, information solutions manager, Medtronics, Inc.Claire Flanagan, senior manager KM and Enterprise Social Collaboration, CSCThis conversation is not a new one but perhaps the difference now is that there are more examples of how Enterprise 2.0 is changing corporate practicesWorkforce TransformationThe group’s general consensus: The goal is to break down the data silos and the walled gardens that permeate the enterprise. Some of the highlights:Murray, BoozAllen: Technologies are changing the business – period. “These technologies are helping us move smarter, faster. The inroads are coming.Jami Pappas, EMC: “We have started a bottom up strategy. ” The company has a few hundred champions who are champions for Enterprise 2.0 technologiesGalinsky, MetLife: “You need drivers.” For example, the ability to collaborate quickly on products to market.Business Process OptimizationMore people do not come into the office for work. The virtual office is such a reality that collaboration tools become increasingly important. This is evident with the announcements such as the one from Second Life today about their enterprise offering and similar products from companies like Proton Media.But still, for Murray of Booze Hamilton, said It comes down to baby steps. The reality, though, is it would never have seemed likely in 2006 that there would be applications plugging into Sharepoint.Intellectual Property/PrivacyData security always elicits fear. It’s no different than how security is viewed in any context. Trust is always the big issue but it is also about keeping some form of control. At Eli Lilly, employees, a lot of them who are scientists, are chomping to use more collaborative tools. Williams, Eli Lilly: The challenge is mitigating risk. “We have to find a way to herd the cats without putting data at risk.”Religious Wars (technology/generational bias)With any movement, revolutionaries have the tendency to make those in power feel a bit uncomfortable. It is no different with enterprise technologies.Galinsky of MetLife said that the issue is often about provincial differences. One group may prefer Microsoft while another group is into IBM, while a third may do whatever pleases them. The reality is it just takes time.Bottom Line Business BenefitsThe reality: Enterprise 2.0 technologies are early in the adoption phase but the soft cost savings are mounting. Microblogging is helping people find information faster and people are questioning the viability of email.For example, Murray said they did a study of the costs to “reply all,” to email. The end savings added up. “It is a toe in the door, an indicator. If I can save that much, what about the big stuff?”What’s striking about asking questions about all of this is the absence of discussions about the monumental waste in IT spending over the years. Hundreds of billions of dollars have been lost to IT projects that have gone hay wire. The new world of enterprise 2.0 technologies are lightweight in comparison and a fraction of the cost. But the answer is readily apparent. The culture takes time to shift. That shift will occur but it’s not going to happen overnight.
