It’s great to see so many good causes, including our own, benefitting from the generosity of BBX members.” Melanie May | 5 November 2019 | News  260 total views,  2 views today Business community tool BBXUK raised over £45,000 in BBX pounds for charity through its inaugural Sparetember campaign in September.Created to generate funds for charities through its network, BBXUK’s Sparetember was a month-long campaign that saw businesses donate goods and services to charities through the platform raising a total of £45,354 BBX pounds for those involved.In total, 31 businesses from across the UK donated goods and services through the platform, with 18 charities benefitting including Diverse Abilities, Julia’s House, Shark Trust, and NSPCC.Charities were able to source supplies and services they needed from the platform such as marketing support, infrastructure for events, accounting and finance support, PR services and office supplies, enabling them to offset some of their cash costs to focus and invest in their projects.BBXUK was inspired to launch the fundraising initiative by the positive responses of similar month-long charity campaigns such as Movember and Stoptober.John Attridge, CEO of BBXUK, commented:“We are a community at BBXUK and this initiative was launched by our team as we wanted to give back and support charities that support us. We are so delighted that so many businesses got involved and donated goods and services through the platform to charities who need the support.“It’s been great to see such a great response for the first ever Sparetember and we hope to make it an annual campaign.”Paul Cox, Managing Director of Shark Trust said: Advertisement Tagged with: Donated goods donated serviceslast_img read more

Photo by MSSMayfield Senior School has kicked off a new program to help juniors prepare for the process of applying to college with the help of admissions officers from colleges and universities across the country. Before embarking upon this journey, the Class of 2014 and their parents were given the opportunity to participate in a hands-on Case Study Program. The program gives students the chance to experience the college admissions process in a real-world context and fully understand how applications are read by admissions officers from a variety of universities.Before the event, students and families were each given a description of a fictitious university, “Red Brick University,” as well as three mock applications to review. They broke into small groups lead by admissions professionals from colleges and universities across the country and discussed which students would be the best fit for the university, based on the applications provided. Mayfield hosted the program in an intimate and open environment Mayfield students and parents connecting and discussing applications, and every student was able to engage with the admissions officers.Says Sonya Williams ’14, “I really enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to see what a college application looks like before I apply myself. I thought it was a really fabulous way to see what types of things stand out on an application. The help from professional college admissions officers was also very eye-opening. Their insights were invaluable. I definitely feel more prepared to face the college application process.” Another junior, Jasmin Rizko agrees: “I thought the Case Studies really brought home the fact that not all colleges look for the same type of student, so you can never have only one option. The representatives were very understanding; they were patient when we asked questions and they treated us as equals while still teaching us.”The representatives were impressed with Mayfield students as well, commenting on how engaged, interested and prepared they were for the process. The evening ended with each admissions officer revealing which institution he or she worked for, followed by a college fair for the students and families. College admissions reps came from schools across the country, including University of Michigan, CalTech, Connecticut College, Loyola University Chicago, NYU, USC and Whitman College.The invaluable experience of reviewing applications, as well as the chance to meet college admissions counselors and learn about institutions around the country made the evening a fantastic success. Students and parents alike feel more informed and prepared to begin the journey of applying to college.Mayfield Senior School boasts a counseling department with two full-time college counselors who work with students one-on-one through the entire process of research, application, discernment and transition. Mayfield believes the college admissions process is an extension of each student’s Mayfield education requiring solid research, self-reflection and thoughtful analysis. With a 1:34 student to counselor ratio, this challenging process is fully personalized and focused on finding colleges and universities where each student will flourish.For more information, visit www.mayfieldsenior.org EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Community Newscenter_img Top of the News 12 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Subscribe Your email address will not be published.

Arrest warrant issued for 1 of 4 people who got lost in West Virginia mine

first_imgAlexey Dozmorov/iStock(CLEAR CREEK, W.Va.) — Police issued an arrest warrant on Thursday for one of the four people who allegedly broke into a West Virginia mine to steal copper, according to court documents. Three of those who entered the mine got lost and were rescued after almost a week underground.Authorities are looking to arrest Eddie Williams, 43, on charges of breaking and entering, felony conspiracy and giving false information to law enforcement officers, according to a criminal complaint.Williams initially told police that he entered the abandoned Rock House Powellton mine in Clear Creek, about 30 miles southeast of Charleston, West Virginia, to search for three friends who were trapped, the complaint said.He later recanted, though, telling police that he went inside with Cody Beverly, 21; Kayla Williams, 25; and Erica Treadway, 31, on Dec. 8, “to see if they left anything behind, copper, or anything.”Eddie Williams said the pairs separated “to have sex” with he and Treadway going in one direction and Beverly and Kayla Williams going in another.“Eddie said that the pairs had split up to have sex with each other,” according to the criminal complaint. “Interviews with Kayla, Cody and Erica at a later date did say that they had separated to have sex.”Eddie Williams managed to escape on Dec. 10, and reported the others missing. They were pulled out of the mine three days later after a large-scale rescue operation.While the rescue efforts were underway, Kayla Williams’ father, Randy Williams, told ABC News, “The reason they’re in there is to get copper.”“It’s worth money,” he said. “A couple years ago it was up to almost $4 a pound. You could go into a mine and make $1,000 a day.”It’s unclear if the others will face charges. Eddie Williams said the group “had entered the mine before to try and make money,” according to the complaint.Beverly and Kayla Williams spoke with reporters outside of Charleston General Hospital, where they were taken for an evaluation after being rescued. Although they didn’t offer details on why they entered the underground mine, they said the experience had taught them the biggest lesson of their lives.“This is a life-changing experience for me,” Beverly told ABC News. “This is the biggest lesson I’ve ever learned in my life.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Bumbling burglars butt-dial 911 on themselves, arrested after high-speed chase in Houston

first_imgKTRK-TV(HOUSTON) — A pair of bumbling burglars were arrested after apparently butt-dialing 911 while fleeing the scene of a burglary at a Best Buy near Houston early Saturday.The men are alleged to have knocked off a Best Buy in Sugar Land, Texas, at about 3 a.m. While responding to an alarm at the store, dispatch received a 911 call in the area, Houston police said. But instead of a caller, they heard only background noise.Authorities said they pinged the cellphone, which was coming from a car traveling toward Houston from the suburban electronics store, and took off in pursuit.“[He] somehow butt-dialed 911, they put it all together, officers were already en route to the alarm call when they got the other 911 call,” a communications officer for the Houston Police Department told Houston ABC station KTRK.The suspects led police on a chase that reached speeds of 120 mph, authorities said.The suspects bailed out of their truck in northeast Houston, but two of the three men were captured, police said. The third remains at large.Authorities found stolen laptops and other electronics from Best Buy in the suspects’ truck.The same Best Buy in Sugar Land was the scene of a $200,000 robbery in March 2015.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Person wanted in connection to Barnard College student Tessa Majors’ murder located by police

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Police have located the person who is wanted in connection to the murder of Barnard College student Tessa Majors.Almost a week after the NYPD released three photographs of an apparent young boy wanted in connection to the murder, the person was located, according to a Twitter post by the Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison.“We have located this individual. Thank you to everyone who reached out with information. This is an active and ongoing investigation,” Harrison said.Majors was stabbed inside Morningside Park on Dec. 11, near the Columbia University campus, which is located across the street from her school. The 18-year-old from Charlottesville, Virginia, stumbled out of the park and onto a nearby street where a school public safety officer spotted her and called 911, police said. She died soon after at a local hospital.A 13-year-old boy has been arrested and charged with murder, though authorities do not believe he is the one to have stabbed Majors.A third boy, also 14 years old, was questioned and released.

A pelagic bryozoan from Antarctica

first_imgSpherical or sub-spherical bryozoan colonies were collected from the surface waters of a coastal polynya in the southeastern Weddell Sea near Halley Station in February 1992. These are the first truly pelagic marine bryozoan colones yet recorded. The collection site is the edge of the Brunt ice shelf, which is between 150 and 250 m thick in this area, and the depth of water to the seabed is ∼-400 m. The colonies were hollow, composed of a single layer of autozooids, and appeared complete and undamaged. They were between 5.0 and 23.0 mm in diameter, were brownish in colour in life, and pale yellowish brown after preservation. Light and scanning electron microscope investigations of the colonies indicated that they belonged to the genus Alcyonidium, and they are here compared with A. flabelliforme Kirkpatrick, a known antarctic benthic species. Both a pelagic existence and hollow spherical colony form are new attributes for the phylum Bryozoa. However, because of the plasticity of form of species belonging to the genus Alcyonidium, these is not enough evidence for the introduction of a new species at this time. The colonies found may represent a previously undescribed juvenile stage of a known Alcyonidium species. It is postulated that these colonies may obtain nutrition from the often abundant populations of ice algae present in the lower layers of permanent sea-ice.last_img read more
