There is an unlikely family forming at Restoration Community Church, a community of people with diverse stories and backgrounds that are being drawn together for a greater purpose. God is writing a story here in Pasadena, California that only he could write, bringing together a church that is passionate about seeing anyone far from God restored to a new life in Christ.”“We want to create a sense of closeness and fellowship with Jesus Christ and among the members of this new church, and the word ‘restoration’ connotes that kind of relationship,” says Nick Gonzales. “But what’s just as important, if not more important, is the sense of community we want to develop with people in the neighborhoods that surround us. Located in the vibrant city of Pasadena, California we want people to view us and use us as a resource that’s vital to their spiritual growth.”“Our dream is to be a church where the barriers to discovering God and His infinite goodness are removed, and people can make real and refreshing changes in their lives,” says Pastor Nick Gonzales.Those interested in learning more about Restoration Community Church, and their services, are invited to visit the church’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/restorationchristiancommunity.

first_imgMcKelvey Foundation taps Champlain Colleges BYOBiz programto co-promote entrepreneurial scholarships–Entrepreneurial scholarship applications due January 15–BURLINGTON, Vt.–The McKelvey Foundation of New York City has selected Champlain Colleges BYOBiz program as a partner in the McKelvey Entrepreneurial Scholarship program. Through its innovative entrepreneurial program for college students, Champlain College will help promote the McKelvey scholarships to young college-bound entrepreneurs.The McKelvey Foundation, founded by former CEO of Monster.com Andrew McKelvey, awards up to $40,000 scholarships to young entrepreneurs who have started their own businesses in high school and wish to continue on to college. Selected students are awarded up to $10,000 per year at a four-year college and are given the opportunity to meet with other scholars during a summer e-Venture program. Applications for the McKelvey Entrepreneurial Scholarships are due each year by January 15. They are available at www.mckelveyfoundation.org/entrepreneurial/(link is external).Champlains BYOBiz program recruits students who have businesses to launch or grow while they earn a degree in any major. In concert with their chosen academic program, BYOBiz helps provide students with the foundation for their entrepreneurial careers, while hands-on mentorship from specialists and members of the business community provide them with the business know-how they need to make their ideas work.McKelvey Foundation Executive Director Christine McKelvey stated, When we choose our scholarship recipients, we are investing in more than just four years of college. We want to insure that our scholars are receiving not only the best education, but that they are provided resources and mentoring outside of the classroom to grow their businesses. We feel that Champlain College is successfully providing all of these things. They are dedicated to nurturing and growing the entrepreneurial spirit in their students, and we are confident our scholars will have an excellent learning experience, both in and out of the classroom.Champlain College President Dave Finney said, The McKelvey-Champlain relationship is an ideal match that will benefit bright, young entrepreneurs in all disciplines who might attend Champlain under a McKelvey Entrepreneurial Scholarship. Were proud to be included as a McKelvey-approved institution and will aggressively promote this opportunity to high school students and guidance counselors in our market.Foundation founder Andrew McKelvey got his first exposure to entrepreneurism as a young teen selling eggs at a profit of 10 cents per dozen. After creating and growing TMP Worldwide, Inc., including the Internet job search company Monster.com (NASDAQ: MNST), he established the McKelvey Foundation to offer young people the benefits of a college education without the burden of debt many students face after graduation. In 2006, the Foundation introduced an entrepreneurial scholarship program, providing e-scholarships to 10 young business owners. In 2007, 52 students received e-scholarships, and in 2008 the goal is 100.Applicants for the McKelvey Entrepreneurial Scholarship program must own and operate a business or nonprofit for at least one year, have at least one paid employee, have sales revenue unless they are a nonprofit, and submit an online application and FAFSA form for financial aid. Scholarship recipients also must attend a summer e-Venture program in St. Louis, Mo.Champlain Colleges BYOBiz program is attracting the interest of young entrepreneurs from around the country and has earned national recognition in Entrepreneur magazine, USA Today and Marketplace business report on public radio.ON THE WEB:http://www.mckelveyfoundation.org/entrepreneurial/(link is external)http://www.champlain.edu/byobiz/(link is external)last_img read more

first_img“The score is very indicative of the match,” Moreira said.“The is the type of match that both teams deserved to win and we were lucky to win it,” he added.Mount Sentinel opened the tournament Thursday in power pool play losing to Langley Christina 15-13 in the third game.The Cats were able to bounce back to edge tournament host Immaculate 15-13 in the third game of the three-set match before defeating Southridge to advance as the top seed in the pool.“Had we lost, we would be seeded fifth after power pool play . . . our pool was that close,” Moreira explained.Seeded first, Mount Sentinel breezed through Friday play dumping 16th seed Ebenezer quite comfortably 3-0 in the best-of-five and eighth ranked Cedars Christian, also 3-0.“We lost in the fourth and it seemed every time we created an opportunity to push back we couldn’t keep our serves in the court,” said Moreira.Saturday’s bronze medal match concluded a six-year journey for three players Malin Chernoff, Kyra Makortoff and Madia Rehwald.The trio started playing the sport in Grade 6 at Brent Kennedy Elementary and were provided a solid foundation for the program since for the past years.The other two seniors graduating are Lexi Tarasoff and Allison Perepelkin.The bronze medal increases the school volleyball medal count to four gold, three silver and 10 bronze.Host Immaculata defeated Langley Christian 3-2 in the best-of-five final to capture the provincial title.Next year, in 2015, the tournament returns to the Kootenays as Mount Sentinel as the host school. For five seniors Saturday’s bronze medal victory in Kelowna culminated hours of work in the gym, time riding on the bus to attend tournaments and months of late nights completing homework after practice during the senior girl’s volleyball season.The Wildcats made their last game a memorable one after scoring a three set victory over Southridge of Surrey Saturday at the BC High School A Girl’s Volleyball Championships at Immaculata Gymnasium in the Central Okanagan City.Mount Sentinel, ranked third overall entering the tournament, defeated Southridge 24-26, 26-24, 16-14.“The last two years for all five seniors was about preparing for “an opportunity” to win a blue banner,” said Mount Sentinel head coach Joe Moreira.“We didn’t achieve our goal, but we are so proud of our effort and commitment to this singular goal; a somewhat silly goal, but laudable nonetheless.“We did everything we could have.”Moreira said the bronze medal match was an “incredible” played match delivered by both teams.Southridge was trying to avenge an earlier loss during round robin play to the Wildcats while the Kootenay reps were simply trying to put a nice finishing cap on what has been an great season.In the end, Mount Sentinel’s seniors were able to deliver the school’s tenth bronze and 17th medal in the program’s history.last_img read more

first_img27 September 2013UK-based solar solutions provider Solarcentury and local partner Momentous Energy have launched a joint venture based in Johannesburg that aims to capitalise on the growing alternative energy market in the southern African region.Announcing the formation of Solarcentury Africa on Wednesday, Solarcentury CEO Frans van den Heuvel said it put the joint venture partners “ahead of the curve in being able to supply roof and ground installations to meet anticipated growing demand for solar energy from southern African countries”.Van den Heuvel said Solarcentury Africa had already completed its first project, a roof installation for a large South African property company, and was planning to install “the biggest solar roof-top system in South Africa” in the coming months.According to Solarcentury, South Africa’s annual 24-hour global solar radiation average is about 220 W/m², compared with about 150 W/m² for parts of the USA and about 100 W/m² for Europe and the United Kingdom.“This makes South Africa’s local resource one of the highest in the world.”Solarcentury boasts 15 years’ experience in the international solar industry and a number of high-profile installations, including the award-winning solar bridge at Blackfriars in London.Momentous Energy brings local knowledge and robust infrustructure to the joint venture.

first_imgCANMORE, Alta. – It wasn’t the best call Bear 164 has ever made, but this time the hefty grizzly just out of his teenage years got lucky.Traffic was whizzing along the Trans-Canada Highway east of Banff National Park around suppertime on July 28 when 164 decided he needed to cross.A car believed to have been going 100 km/h slammed into the bear so hard it was no longer drivable.“There was fairly significant damage to the front end of the vehicle. We were assuming we were going to have a dead bear on our hands and we’d have to go and recover the body,” John Paczkowski, an ecologist for Alberta Environment and Parks, recounted Friday.But then, as if some grizzly guardian angel was on duty, Bear 164 picked himself up and ran off into the trees.The bear had been captured a little more than a year before, so parks staff waited for a mortality sensor on its collar to tell them of the bear’s fate.“If that collar stops moving for several hours … the pulse rate and the beep that we hear changes … which means the collar has fallen off or the animal has died.”But 164 was still moving the next morning and a conservation officer spotted him walking with just a bit of limp, but no signs of significant injury.A wildlife veterinarian advised parks staff to give the bear some distance for a couple of weeks, Paczkowski said. If the bruin was injured, he needed time to heal.The survivor grizzly continued to roam past the mountain town of Canmore, Alta., and into Banff National Park.On Aug. 16, it was time to see how he was doing. Parks staff located him, darted him and replaced his old collar with a new GPS unit.“He was really in good shape when we had a look at him,” Paczkowski said.“He had really put on a lot of weight. He had grown in girth and in length and in all different ways. He was a really nice, healthy-looking bear.”The grizzly, who’s about seven years old, had almost doubled his weight to about 135 kilograms from when he was first collared 14 months earlier.Paczkowski attributes that to a “really abundant berry crop.”“He’s just in those thick berry patches gorging.”Paczkowski said male grizzlies can live to 20 or more years if they avoid traffic, but 164 lives a bit of a “high-risk lifestyle.”He spends most of his time away from humans, but has made secretive and swift forays into Banff’s Bow Valley around highways and railways.It’s quite possible this bear, just into adulthood, will have learned to retreat once more into the silence of the back country, Paczkowski suggested.“A traumatic experience like that would probably wisen him up to trying to cross the highway,” he said.“As he matures into an adult male his roam range will increase and he’ll move further and wider afield and hopefully he has a productive life.”— By Sylvia Strojek in Edmontonlast_img read more
