Friday Field Notes

first_imgMoriah Legvold is with the MN National Guard as a Child and Youth Program Coordinator and  has been working with State Family Programs for 3 years. Previously, Moriah was an elementary teacher at Iowa Connections Academy.  She has gained experience and a passion for military youth as a Camp Adventure Counselor on an active duty base in Hawaii during Summer 2010.  She continued her passion volunteering for the Iowa National Guard for 1 ½ years around the time she graduated from college in 2011 with a degree in Elementary Education at William Penn University. In our fourth Friday Field Notes blog post we are highlighting how State Family Programs has partnered with their local cooperative extension at the University of Minnesota to create some diverse youth programming.  As you read this post, consider how your efforts to build community capacity to enhance the resilience and well-being of military families via job and career assistance might benefit  from a collaboration with cooperative extension in your community.We first connected with the University of Minnesota Extension when a grant was funded to help support Military Kids through Operation Military Kids.  Operation Military Kids was established in 2005 in effort to support children of National Guard and Reserve soldiers who are called to active duty.  Operation Military Kids provides a support network to youth and their families by connecting them helpful people and organizations in their hometowns.Our OMK partnership has consisted of developing our MN Military Teen Panel.  The panel was started in 2010 to support military teens who have a parent currently serving in the National Guard or Reserves.  This is a group of about 14 teens who plan the Teen Summit each year. At our Teen Summit we have utilized 4-H Youth Development Educator, Brian McNeil to teach small group and large group workshops.  We have also partnered with them during Month of the Military Child to award Art Contest participants with prizes and promote Month of the Military Child t-shirts.  The partnerships also included support military children with a parent deployed.  At Yellow Ribbon events, Operation Military Kids provided a Regional Activity Coordinator to implement 6th-12th grade curriculum, provide Hero Packs (for kids with a parent getting ready to deploy) and comfort pillows (with a parent currently deployed) to 3-18 years old.  OMK supported a variety of events for Military Youth including Boots On Camp, SPEAK Out, and Family Camps.Since OMK funding has ended on a national level our partnership with Extension has continued.  We have utilized Extension for our workshops at the Teen Summit.  This year we are utilizing a Health and Nutrition Educator to teach a workshop on Healthy Living.  In the past we have utilized Family Development Educator, Sara Croymans, for a workshop on Finances, Cassandra Silveira for a workshop on Nutrition.   We are continuing to handout Hero Packs and Comfort Pillows at Yellow Ribbon Events.  In addition to the Hero Packs and Comfort Pillows we received a slew of OMK materials that we hand out at our Tween Overnights and Teen Leadership Forum.We haven’t had the chance to connect MN Military with 4-H Youth. However, recently at our Teen Leadership Forum we had 4-H come to implement their Engineering Clinic.  Along with a 4-H County Program Coordinator there was 4 4-H Youth who lead each group of teens throughout the clinic.We have found many benefits to partnering with a great organization, Extension.  There is a vast variety of personnel, and resources to pull from.  The knowledge base of Extension personnel far exceeds what any other organization has to support youth, in general. The opportunities are endless with partnering with an organization consisting of a wide variety of subject matters.  What helps is the fact they are local.  We continue to attend the 4-H Military Partnership Meeting each Spring, where we gather great ideas on how to further develop our partnership with 4-H and extensions as a whole.About us:Laura Groenweg, is the Lead Child and Youth Program Coordinator at Cognitive Professional Service Corporation.  She has been working with State Family Programs for 6 years, and started the Minnesota Military Teen Panel, or MMTP, 5 years ago. In that time she has become a military spouse and has had 2 boys, Levi, 2 ½ years old and Simon, 9 months old.  Recently, she experienced a 6 month separation while her husband was attending Basic Officer Leadership course in Ft. Sill, OK.last_img read more

Center will work shoulder to shoulder with Nitish Kumar for Bihar’s development, says Narendra Modi

first_imgOn his first official visit to Bihar after Chief Minister and JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar returned to the NDA fold, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday promised that the Centre would work shoulder-to-shoulder with him for the development of Bihar.The Prime Minister shared the stage with Mr Kumar at the centenary celebrations of the Patna University and later launched a slew of road and sewerage projects worth over ₹3,700 crore at Mokamah.Lamenting that no Indian university figures among the top 500 globally, Mr. Modi said the government intends to provide ₹10,000 crore to 20 varsities to ensure that they are counted among the best in the world.Bihar is blessed with both ‘Gyaan’ and ‘Ganga.’ This land has a legacy that is unique: PM @narendramodi— PMO India (@PMOIndia) October 14, 2017 Responding to Mr. Kumar’s fervent plea that central university status be granted to Patna University, Mr Modi said, “Issues like grant of central status have become a thing of the past. We will provide an assistance of ₹10,000 crore to 10 private universities and an equal number of government ones for a period of five years. All these universities have to do is to demonstrate their potential to become world class.”The universities will not be selected by the Prime Minister or a chief minister or any other political figure, he said ; their potential will be assessed by a professional, third party agency.Patna University should meet the challenge to become among the 10 best public universities to get a ₹10,000 crore grant in five years and an autonomous status, he said.Prominent Patna University alumni and local BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha, former finance minister, senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha and RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav were conspicuously absent from the dais.“Nitishji is committed to development of Bihar…the central government would work shoulder-to-shoulder with him for the development of Bihar and by 2022 when the country would celebrate 75 years of Independence, Bihar too will be among developed States,” Mr Modi said.“Patna University should also connect with its glorious list of alumna to regain its past glory,” he added further.However, reacting to the Prime Minister’s announcement, former professor of Patna University, Nawal Kishore Choudhury told The Hindu, “It triggered great disappointment and resentment not only among teachers and student community but society at large…It’s also a cause of great worry that the Prime Minister announced to hand over government universities into the hands of private players.”Taking a potshot at Mr Kumar’s demand being turned down, RJD leader Tejaswi Yadav said, “Bihar’s backstabber CM begged in front of his new almighty to accord central university status to Patna University but PM out-rightly rejected his demand while showing him his actual place and status…I feel bad for Nitish chacha (uncle)”.Though, other alumni like Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, his deputy in the cabinet Sushil Kumar Modi, union cabinet ministers Ram Vilas Paswan, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Ashwani Choubey and Upendra Kushwaha shared stage with the Prime Minister.Later, after attending Patna University’s centenary celebration function, Mr. Modi left for Mokama, 100 km from Patna and launched several development projects of national highways to bridges and sewage treatment plants worth of over ₹3,700 crore. He also listed achievements of his government and its aspirations for the development of Bihar and the country as well.last_img read more

Two killed, 42 injured in tanker-bus collision in Raigad

first_imgTwo died and 42 persons were injured after a Pen-bound Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation bus collided with a gas tanker on Sunday morning in Raigad district. The accident occurred around 8.45 a.m. at Gagode Phata on Pen-Khopoli road. Officials said the driver of the tanker, which was carrying liquid ammonia, lost control of the vehicle and it collided with the bus. Raghunath Balaram Mhatre (67), a resident of Bori, died on the spot while Dinesh Khedekar (26), a resident of Nanegaon, succumbed on the way to hospital. While the bus was on its way to Pen from Khopoli, the tanker was going towards Pune from Pen. “The injured were taken to Pen hospital and from there, a few were shifted to Alibag Civil Hospital. Some were discharged and one was shifted to JJ Hospital due to the seriousness of injuries,” senior police inspector Indrajit Katkar from Pen police station said.Traffic on Pen-Khopoli road was affected for close to five hours after the accident. “We called for two fire tenders and experts from the Rashtriya Chemicals and Fertilizers, who checked the tanker. After making sure that it was safe, we called for cranes to move the tanker from the road,” Mr. Katkar said. The vehicles that were behind the bus and tanker were stuck in congestion. “We allowed four-wheelers and two-wheelers to go ahead, but the heavy vehicles had to wait till the road was cleared. Meanwhile, our officers also diverted other vehicles via Pali and Mumbai bypass road,” Mr. Katkar said.The injured included 18 men and 24 women from Badlapur, Ulhasnagar, Khadkebadi, Gagode, Pen and Neral. The youngest among them were a six-year-old boy and a three-year-old boy, who are out of danger.
