Kids to Hire Their Own Counselors at Steve & Kate’s Camps

first_img Subscribe Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * An award-winning children’s day camp known for its guiding philosophy of letting kids decide their own activities today announced plans to dramatically expand its mission of kid-empowerment by directly involving campers in the interview and hiring process for their own camp counselors. Steve & Kate’s Camp,which has grown to include 39 locations in California, Washington and Illinoissince it began operation 33years ago,seasonallyemploys more than 600 college age or older counselors to manage dozens of camp programs from animation and cooking, to stadium sports and water slides.On May 20, regional directors from Steve & Kate’s Camps will invite campers to join them as interview paneliststo choose counselors for the summerof 2013. Kids will grill their prospective counselors with questions that are both prepared in advance and also posed on the fly, just to keep their future mentors on their toes. Camp counselor applicants who pass the Q&A period will then be put to the ultimate interview test—playing games with kids on the interview panel. Though Regional Directors will retain final say on all hires, they will depend heavily on feedback from the kids and debrief on all interviews with them. The Regional Directors will also conduct final pre-employment steps that include extensive reference calls and background checks, but they’ll rely on kids’ opinions to identify that certain “jenesaisquoi” that makes some people naturals to lead groups of kids.“After 32 years of conducting interviews, we decided to put hiring power in the hands of those most impacted by the hiring decisions—the kids,” said owners Steve and Kate Susskind. “Steve &Kate’s Camptradition of giving kids control over their own experience runs deep, and stems from our abiding philosophy that self-directed learning is the best way to learn. Instead of rigid structure,we offer campers a world packed with possibilities, and the tools and gentle guidance to help them become autodidacts. Having kids take part in the counselor interview and hiring process is a fun and groundbreaking extension of our mission to give our campers choice.”At Steve &Kate’s Camp, campers can explore new challenges. One camper dives into stop-motion animation, while another discovers a passion for dance. Or chess. A campercan become engrossed in making the ultimate spaghetti sauce. Or developing Leo Messi-like touch on the soccer pitch.These discoveries are all the more exhilarating because campers make them for themselves. This is a world liberated from adult judgments and expectations, and campers flourish in it.Steve & Kate’s Camp is equally flexible for parents, liberating them from the frustration of weekly sessions. There are two ways to play: The Day Pass and The Membership. Parents can buy any number of Day Passes and use them anytime. Unused paid passes are automatically refunded in full at summer’s end. The Membership is one fee that covers the whole summer and if a camper doesn’t use enough to justify the cost of the Membership his/her account is converted to Day Pass rate and the difference in cost is refunded automatically. Both plans allow families to attend anytime from 7:30 am to 6 pm, at any location and it even includes lunch and snacks.Lunch at Steve & Kate’s is a big deal. Chef Nate Keller, former Executive Chef at Google, has joined the team full-time and has developed a culturally diverse menu based on Italian, Mexican, Japanese, American and French cuisines. Some items are adventurous–coq au vin and eggplant parm–and others are kids’ classics–quesadillas and mac & cheese. He uses local and organic ingredients whenever he can and puts healthy twists on items like sneaking cauliflower into the mac & cheese sauce so that the meal is well balanced. Lunch comes alive thanks to the onsite cooks who fire each dish right before the kids eat.In keeping with the philosophy, campers can choose one of six options each day or eat them all if they are ambitious.Activities include:Studios: Nestled inconspicuously within Steve & Kate’s are six creative hives where campers lose themselves in uninhibited exploration. Inevitably, campers venture into one or more of them. Inside, they find copious supplies and professional equipment. Each studio is available every day at every location.Studios include: Stop-Motion Animation, Music Recording, Building, Dance, Culinary Arts and Style.Weekly specials: Each week there is a mind-blowing new thrill –a hurricane water slide, a zip-line, air cannons, rock climbing, obstacle courses, inflatable hamster wheels, water balloon launchers. Expect the unexpected.Daily specials: Every day of the week has its own special activity. Whether it’s go-kart racing, playing Frisbee® golf, juggling diabolos on a balance board, or traversing a slackline, no two days of the week look the same.Show Specials: At least once a week, campers are surprised with wild new phenomena—a King Cheetah, a stage combat workshop led by child actors, performances by a young dance troupe, a reptile show with a blue tongue skink and a python. Of course it could also be a 10-year old beatboxer. Or a violin prodigy. Dozens of novel acts grace the stage—many performed by inspiring youth as a way of showing what young people are capable of.Pure play: The choices for campers are virtually endless. They have a self-serve supply of books, strategy games like chess and Magic cards, thousands of precision-cut construction blocks, foosball, pogo sticks and stilts. They jump into rounds of dodgeball and capture the flag. And win prizes finding the rubber chicken and at Game Show.Sports: Soccer, hockey, racquet sports and field polo action take place in our custom, kid-sized inflatable stadium, where the ball doesn’t go out and the action rarely stops.Filmmaker-In-Residence: Camp becomes a movie studio lot each day when campers collaborate as actors and crew with our Filmmaker-in-Residence. Films are scripted, shot and edited, then premiered at Camper Showcase across all of the 39 locations.Please Note: Specific dates vary by location and are subject to change depending on school calendars. Camp is closed on July 4th.

Kids find their thumbprint at Steve and Kate’s.

Both women pleaded guilty to the charges.Murish Gavin solicitor for Ms Chera said his client was a 20-year-old woman who “was promised a totally different life than what it turned out to be and now she just wants to finalise these matters and go home”.Judge Eugene O’Kelly convicted Ms Chera of the prostitution charge and applied the Probation act after he heard that she had made contact with certain services with a view to returning to Romania shortly.However, the court heard that Ms Sturzea, who had since moved to Dundalk, was not in a position to return to Romania as her three-month-old child was subject of a HSE care order.

JPMorgan CEO on Trump

Thank you all!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 16, 2017The decision to disband the counsels comes on the coattails of nine members’ resignation after the events of Saturday’s alt-right rally and subsequent fallout in Charlottesville, Virginia.As of this week, additional resignations rolled in from: Inge Thulin, CEO of 3M; Denise Morrison, CEO of Campbell Soup; Scott Paul, President of the Alliance of American Manufacturing; Kenneth C. Frazier, CEO of Merck; Kevin Plank, CEO of Under Armour, Brian Krzanich, CEO of Intel; and Richard Trumka, President of AFL-CIO.There was increased pressure for JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon to also withdraw from the President’s council. On Wednesday afternoon, a handful of New York-based advocacy groups—including New York Communities for Change, Center for Popular Democracy, and Make the Road New York—marched on Chase’s headquarters in Manhattan, demanding that the CEO do more to stand up against the president.Dimon and JPMorgan Chase were largely silent until an internal memo surfaced with an official statement:“I strongly disagree with President Trump’s reaction to the events that took place in Charlottesville over the past several days. Racism, intolerance, and violence are always wrong. The equal treatment of all people is one of our nation’s bedrock principles. There is no room for equivocation here: the evil on display by these perpetrators of hate should be condemned and has no place in a country that draws strength from our diversity and humanity.As a company and for all business in general, it is critical that we help develop rational, intelligent policies to help expand opportunities for all of our citizens. I know that times are tough for many. The lack of economic growth and opportunity has led to deep and understandable frustration among so many Americans. But fanning divisiveness is not the answer. Constructive economic and regulatory policies are not enough and will not matter if we do not address the divisions in our country. It is a leader’s role, in business or government, to bring people together, not tear them apart.”With a president that has been so vocal about tax reform and reducing regulations, what might it mean for the mortgage finance industry now that the council has disbanded?Rick Sharga, EVP of Ten-X, remains optimistic for the industry.“It’s unfortunate that the political climate has become so toxic that CEOs began resigning from President Trump’s advisory committees, fearing that their participation would damage their companies,” he said. “When Government and business work together towards common goals, the U.S. economy benefits.“Luckily, the mortgage industry is well-represented in the Trump Administration—both Steve Mnuchin and Wilbur Ross are mortgage industry veterans, with broad, deep networks of executives within both the bank and non-bank lender community. Interests of lenders, and the consumers they serve, should continue to be heard.”Sharga also suspects that Dimon will continue to counsel the president as needed, as he has been known to do for past administrations.

Audit of GCAA likely soon – new Director

first_imgBY SHEMUEL FANFAIRAn international audit on aviation is expected to be conducted into the operations of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCCA). Soon to be appointed Director General, Egbert Field, made this revelation at the welcoming ceremony of the inaugural flight of Fly AllWays airline at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport on Tuesday.His comments came on the heels that most air carriers operating out of Guyana are unable to land at airports in North America due to the lack of international Category One aviation status. On this note, Field told reporters that immediately upon him taking office, one of the priorities will be to raise the country’s level of compliance in line with the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).“No airline that is registered and based in Guyana has the ability to go to airports North America because we are in Category Two,” he noted.It was explained that ICAO representatives will soon be in Guyana to carry out an assessment after which it is hoped that the country can move from a Category Two status to Category One.“After the audit, depending on our level of compliance, we may have some corrective actions to do but I can see us moving toward Category One [which] we will gain from the FAA (Federal Aviation Authority)… gaining Category One will allow airlines starting up and basing themselves in Guyana will have the opportunity to fly to North America,” the new GCAA Director noted.With his 40 years of experience in the aviation sector, including some 30 years as a Guyana Airways pilot and later a stint in Jamaica’s Aviation Authority, Field posited that this has made him suitable to lead the country’s aviation sector.“I’m a retired Colonel, also a captain… with over 30 years experience flying – over 18,000 hours, I know what I can do for this industry and we may have a return to Guyana Airways in the future,” Field expressed.The retired military officer shared the view that Guyana achieving the improved aviation status is especially timely since he believes that air traffic will increase once the oil sector takes off.Established in March 2002, The Guyana Civil Aviation Authority is guided by Civil Aviation Act (2000) which governs navigation, licensing and security regulations for air transport services in Guyana.last_img read more

Tesla Will Take Your Solar Roof Order Now

first_imgIt’s also worth noting that Musk claimed last fall the solar roof would cost less to manufacture and install than a conventional roof, even without accounting for the electricity it produced. “Electricity is just a bonus,” he said. That’s clearly not the case. Three houses, three cost estimatesTo test Tesla’s claims, Consumer Reports ran the numbers for three houses — one in Yonkers, New York, one in a Houston, Texas, suburb, and the last in Thousand Oaks, California.The most compelling case for a Solar Roof came from the California house. Tesla recommended a 50-50 split between solar and non-solar tiles, with the 1,878 square feet of roofing and the Powerwall battery costing $56,800. Because the roof would generate an estimated $84,700 in electricity, the homeowner would recoup $41,800 over 30 years (the estimate includes a $13,900 federal tax credit).Texas didn’t do so well. The two-story, 4,467-square-foot house also would get a roof with 50% solar tiles, which would generate $46,800 in electricity over 30 years. But the size of the house and the fact it would need air conditioning 300 days per year means that the homeowner would be out $13,500 after 30 years. The roof plus Powerwalls (two of them in this case) would cost a total of $97,700.In Yonkers, the 2,700-square-foot house would need 70% solar roofing tiles and a single Powerwall battery. The upfront cost would be $45,400, but in the end the homeowners would net $13,900 if they lived there for 30 years and all of the other assumptions the calculator makes hold true.Tesla recommends a Powerwall battery as part of the package. But in states with net-metering, where homeowners are paid the full retail rate for excess electricity they send to the grid, it might be more economical to skip the Powerwall, providing the homeowners aren’t concerned about an occasional power outage. The basicsA Solar Roof uses two types of tiles, which both look the same. One type produces electricity; the other doesn’t. Depending on where the house is located, the mix of solar to non-solar tiles allowing the home to be completely powered by solar electricity will vary. That ratio also affects the total cost of the installation. Estimates also include the cost of a Powerwall 2.0 (13.5 kWh) battery, which comes with a 10-year warranty.Tesla has provided a cost calculator allowing homeowners to plug in a few basics about their home and get an estimate of how much the installed roof would cost and the value of the power it is expected to produce over 30 years (the warranty period for solar production.)Homeowners may order tiles with either a smooth or textured glass surface. Tiles made to look like slate and terra cotta will not be available until next year.Tiles come with a warranty described by Tesla as “infinity, or the lifetime of your house, whichever comes first,” while power and weatherization (no leaks) each have a 30-year guarantee. Tiles can be installed on a roof with a pitch of 3:12 or greater.If you want to place an order, you will be asked to place a refundable deposit of $1,000. Tesla says installations will start in California in June, “rolling out to additional markets over time.” Installations will be on a first come, first served basis. Details on Tesla’s Solar Shingles Are Slow to EmergeSolar Panels That Don’t Look Like Solar Panels Will a Merged Tesla-SolarCity Put a Solar-Powered Battery in Every Home?Dow Drops Its Line of Solar ShinglesSolarCity Is Getting Into the Roofing Shingle BusinessAn Introduction to Photovoltaic SystemsGAF Dives Into the Residential Solar Market RELATED ARTICLES Tesla has now answered one of the big remaining questions about its textured glass Solar Roof — just how much will it cost? — and the estimates show some homeowners could benefit financially over time despite substantial upfront costs, according to an analysis published by Consumer Reports.CEO Elon Musk promised last fall that the innovative roofing tiles, which can be made to look like one of several roof coverings, would cost less than a conventional roof.Did Tesla deliver? Broadly speaking, it looks like it. But there are many assumptions included in the mix. Consumer Reports said last fall that a Solar Roof would have to cost no more than $24.50 per square foot to beat the cost of an asphalt roof for an average house. Tesla’s current estimate for the same house sets the cost of the roof at $21.85 per square foot, just about 11% less than the Consumer Reports limit.The analysis was based on the value of 30 years’ worth of electricity. (Consumer Reports explained the assumptions it made in an article published last November.) What we still don’t knowHomeowners who buy a Solar Roof are paying for 30 years of electricity upfront, but most of them will move long before that. The National Association of Home Builders says that owners of single-family homes on average move every 13 years — less than half the tenure that would be required to see the financial gain in Tesla’s calculator.Electricity costs over time, the impact on property taxes, interest rates, even shading from trees on the lot or nearby buildings are all variables that would affect the financial outcome over a 30-year stretch.Tesla has published some information about the tiles, including hail, wind, and fire ratings. We know that each tile is 14 inches long and roughly 8 5/8 inches wide.But Tesla hasn’t said anything about the output of the solar tiles, how they are wired, and even what type of solar cell is beneath the textured glass surface. Does each tile have its own electrical connection — meaning hundreds or thousands of individual junctions on each roof — or will tiles somehow be ganged together to reduce the number of connections that must be made (and potentially repaired)?“We are not yet sharing the specific technical details you’ve requested,” a Tesla spokeswoman said in an email.A lack of information also makes it difficult to compare the cost of a Solar Roof with a conventional rooftop solar installation. In order to make an apples-to-apples comparison, homeowners would have to know the capacity (in kW) of the Tesla roof so they could get bids on a racked solar array of the same capacity from a local installer. Tesla doesn’t provide that information.Plus, homeowners have other options if they want something other than conventional panels in racks attached to the roof. There is GAF’s recently announced entry into the market, Tesla’s own low-profile solar panels, and SolarSkin panels from Sistine Solar, which are installed on racks like conventional solar arrays but manufactured so they have the appearance of any material the homeowner chooses.No matter how the number-crunching goes, Tesla hopes that homeowners will find the appearance of the tiles to be a major draw. How quickly are the orders coming in? The company isn’t saying. “We are not providing updates on orders at this time,” a spokeswoman said.last_img read more

I think one thing my teams always do is show tremendous respect for the opposition, but we never change our style,” Oxford’s manager said.”We almost in a stupid way match them at their own game and sometimes it doesn’t work.”I’ve been battered 6-0 in this competition by Southampton. I’ve also been beaten 5-1 by Chelsea in the FA Cup, so there have been a few hidings, but these are the ones you remember for the rest of your life.”Before the game I said I think I have some Premier League youngsters in my team and if you look at our age, we were younger than West Ham.”We don’t only have an older group of players who want to run around, but we have a young team with tremendous growth thanks to the academy and the players we have brought in so I can’t ask for any more from my players.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
