first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |SHREWSBURY – Can we do more to impact the community in a positive way?This is the question David Levy posed when he accepted the role of president at the Guild of Creative Arts (GCA), as he considered how the 58-year-old nonprofit artist cooperative at 620 Broad St. could influence and extend its reach.For Levy, the GCA was more than a celebrated showroom or heralded hub of creativity for local artists developing ideas.The facility presented Levy a platform, and what’s more, an opportunity, to make the artistic experience accessible to all who sought it, a notion that led him to establish The Docent Program.“Our mission at the Guild is to advance excellence in the visual arts, but our vision is to reach out to everyone in our community, especially the underserved populace, including those with disabilities, and ignite or rekindle their love of art,” Levy said on Tuesday, while prepping the GCA’s Feb. 11 reception for its current Exhibiting and Associate Show, an exhibition that runs until Feb. 27 and features the work of the cooperative’s most prominent artists.According to Levy, The Docent Program, which focuses on the observation of art pieces and emphasizes analysis, evaluation and higher-order thinking skills, caters to the developmental and cognitive needs of elementary school-aged students, as well as children and adults with special needs and senior citizens with cognitive or physical disabilities.Since founding The Docent Program in 2013, Levy has witnessed firsthand the benefits such an offering can provide to the surrounding special needs community, which is why he finds it troubling that funding for the arts has come under fire in recent years.“Art is for everyone and is something that enriches lives,” said Levy, a former college professor of art history, as well as an instructor of gifted and talented students and an enrichment teacher for students with special needs.“There are so many reasons why it’s worthwhile, and for kids especially, it shows that art activities stimulate various parts of their developing brain, which positively impacts other subject areas and aspects of their lives,” said Levy. “The arts are something worth fighting for.”While he remains steadfast in his fight for the preservation of arts education, Levy’s Docent Program continues to offer insight to those who wish to appreciate and interpret art pieces from the perspective of an artist, helping viewers gain a greater understanding of the creatives’ methods and what they hope to accomplish stylistically and affectively.“It was a goal of mine to help transform this into something more than a place to view art and take classes,” Levy said. “We wanted The Guild to be a community resource that could reach out and educate everyone. And this program is helping us do that.”This article was first published in the Feb. 8-15, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

first_imgIt was a proud moment for Gartan National School today as they raised their fifth green flag in conjunction with an active flag. Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher hoisted the two flags at the school on Friday morning.The Donegal TD said both initiatives play an essential part in creating awareness about protecting the environment and the importance of physical education and fitness towards our overall wellbeing.Pat the Cope said: “The green flag schools initiative creates awareness in our primary and secondary schools about the single biggest challenge facing each and every one of us; is how we manage the environment, how we deal with waste and plastics that we create and how we minimalize damage we do to our shared environment with that waste. “Unlike in the past, we now have record population levels on our planet, record levels of waste and no effective ways of dealing with the ever-growing mountains of waste.“We see this daily with the amounts of waste and plastics in our seas, oceans, countryside, it is alarming,” stated Pat the Cope.“Unfortunately, it is all due to human recklessness and poor understanding of how to manage our countryside and environment.“The green flag initiative is an important first step in instilling how to manage waste and to better care for our environment. Speaking after launching Gartan NS their active flag award, Pat the Cope said: “For the overall wellbeing of the student and for the physical and mental health of the individual, it is essential that we have the correct amount of physical education and exercise.“That is the reason why initiatives such as the active school flag are critical programmes nowadays to have incorporated in our schools.“I wish to commend and congratulate Gartan National School for undertaking both initiatives and for promoting these programmes within their school.“I fully appreciate that these measures take quite an amount of time, both school staff and management have been great advocates for these two initiatives,” concluded Pat the Cope.Gartan National School receives fifth green flag was last modified: June 7th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgAmendments to the National Environmental Management and the Mineral and Petroleum Development Acts will soon see a smoother process to licensing in the mining sector, improving the climate for investment in the country.As the 20th African Mining Indaba comes to a close, strides are being made in opening up investment opportunities into the sector. With $2.5-trillion in proven mineral reserves, it is ripe for beneficiation and investment, and remains a significant contributor to the South African economy. Recent research indicates that platinum, coal and gold contribute 66% and 84% of revenue and employment respectively.And, according to delegates at the Investment Promotion Workshop, co-hosted by Brand South Africa and the departments of Mineral Resources, Trade and Industry and Science and Technology at the Indaba, South Africa is “an emerging market that matters”.In light of this, the government is set to implement the Integrated Mining Licensing System, which will cap the time taken to approve new projects to 180 days and a further 90 days for the appeals process, and eliminate duplicating some environmental requirements.Cutting out the red tapeThe new licensing regime will come into effect with the amendments to the National Environmental Management (NEMA) and the Mineral and Petroleum Development Acts, said Martha Mokonyane from the Department of Mineral Resources during a presentation at the workshop.Mokonyane says parliament voting on the changes to the laws is scheduled to be finalised well before the end of the year.Under the proposed changes, the environmental authorisation in respect of mining and prospecting will be regulated under a single system, prescribed by NEMA.In terms of NEMA, the Minister of Mineral Resources will be the “competent authority” responsible for putting in place an environmental system relating to mining and prospecting. The Minister of Environmental Affairs will take over the responsibility of appeals relating to environmental authorisation on mining matters.Another change under the proposed system will see licensing requirements – like a Water Use Licence – running parallel to the other approval processes. This way decisions will be taken simultaneously.Previously Water Affairs, Environmental Affairs and Mineral Resources each had their own somewhat duplicate licensing processes – leading to inevitable delays.Mokonyane said under the new system there would be regulatory certainty, making it easier to do business in South Africa, which would in turn improve the investment climate.The work done to date by the three departments to ease the licensing requirements has the approval of Jonny de Lange, parliament’s Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Water and Environmental Affairs. Late last year he praised the departments for their efforts and noted that “the optimal implementation of these legislative arrangements” would strengthen confidence in the system.Making a case for investmentThe South African economy, underpinned by prudent monetary and fiscal policy, has grown from being worth US$80-billion in 1994 to one worth US$400-billion. Research shows that it has diversified in the past 20 years with banking and real estate increasing their contributions to the economy – from 12.5% to 24%. This bodes well for the creation of a knowledge economy.International investors continue to see South Africa as a reliable investment destination with foreign direct investment projects in South Africa having grown at a compound rate of 22.4% between 2007 and 2012, making South Africa the leading destination for investment into Africa.And, at the workshop, delegates were assured that government and business are committed to implementing the National Development Plan (NDP), the vision of the nation South Africa strives to be by 2030, improving the country’s position as a leading investment destination.Key proposals from the NDP are being implemented, including:Making sustainable investments in competitive economic infrastructure;Increasing the pace of job creation, especially for young job seekers;Encouraging the expansion of businesses and development on new enterprises;Transforming human settlements and developing a functioning public transport system;Providing policy certainly to encourage long-term investment in mining and other sectors;Increasing economic integration within Sub-Saharan Africa in areas such as energy production; and finance, tourism, communications, infrastructure building and customs administration.Presenters at the workshop included Brand South Africa chief executive officer, Miller Matola; the Department of Trade and Industry’s Yunus Carrim; the Department of Science and Technology’s Imraan Patel; Martha Mokonyane of the Department of Mineral Resources; Mxolisi Kota of the Council of Geoscience; Matlou Mabokanon of the Technology Innovation Agency; Dr Declan Vogt of the CSIR; and Peter Craven of MINTEK.Presenting in their fields of expertise, they made a compelling business case for why prospective investors should consider South Africa as an investment destination.In the final analysis, Matola said, “South Africa is a sound destination for inward flows of investment and is an emerging market that matters.”The Mining Indaba concludes on Thursday 6 February 2014.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Mostly sunny and pleasant today, as cooler air continues to move into the area. Tomorrow will be dry as well, with sun to start, but clouds increase in the afternoon and evening. Still, it should be a great start to the weekend.A front moves across Ohio for the second half of the weekend. We expect showers for Sunday. Rain totals will end up being from a tenth or two on the low end to around half an inch on the top end. Then overnight Sunday night through Monday, we continue to see rain and perhaps a few thunderstorms, but mostly south of a line from Youngstown to Cincinnati. Any thunderstorm threat comes Sunday night, and will be most prevalent in far south central to southern Ohio. Moisture actually will be done Monday midday in western and northern Ohio, and we should see sun return there faster. However those south and eastern locations can pick up another half to 1 inch.10 day precipitation potential.We are sunny and dry for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Temps climb a bit, but will generally be normal to slightly above normal. This will be great dry down weather and will promote harvest opportunity, particularly in the areas that are on the low end of the range this weekend on rain. Then, we have a strong system and cold front that moves through next Friday. Rain and thunderstorms bring rain of .25″-.75″ to 100% of the state. Behind the front we turn much colder as we clear out. We can see frost either next Saturday morning or next Sunday morning, depending on which model you believe. IF we can clear quickly on Friday night, we think Saturday morning is the most likely…but if the front is stalled at all in leaving, that will bring the coldest morning in on Sunday. Lows for this air mass change will be down in the 31-37 degree range, so we are looking at a frost only, not a hard freeze. The timing of this (October 12th or 13th) really not all that big of a story…this is about average for the first frost in our area.High pressure is in for Saturday and Sunday (with a nearby full moon too, everything seeming to align for a frost) as we finish the the 10 day period, and then stays in control for Monday and Tuesday (14th-15th) to kick off the 11-16 day period. Scattered showers are back over the northern half of the state for Wednesday the 16th, triggering a few hundredths to a tenth or two from I-70 north. Then better organized rain hits 80% of the state for Thursday the 17th, but still yields only a quarter inch or less. Dry to finish the extended window Friday and Saturday (19th-20th), but there is a large storm complex lurking out west that looks like it may want to push in shortly thereafter.last_img read more
