Ed Bacon (l) and Fr. Greg Boyle (r). Photo courtesy All Saints ChurchFr. Greg Boyle often quotes Mother Teresa: “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” In the wake of the Ferguson, Missouri Grand Jury decision not to indict the police officer who killed an unarmed African-American teenager, Fr. Boyle and All Saints Church Pasadena’s rector Ed Bacon will have a wide-ranging conversation about the state of structural racism, the vulnerability of youth of color and the theology of interconnectivity, on Sunday, November 30, at 10:15 a.m. in the Rector’s Forum at All Saints Church.In 1992, as a response to the civil unrest in Los Angeles, Boyle launched the Homeboy Bakery with a mission to create an environment that provided training, work experience, and above all, the opportunity for rival gang members to work side by side. That groundbreaking work evolved into Homeboy Industries, and established Boyle as a spokesperson for kinship and compassion.The Rev. Ed Bacon became rector of All Saints Church Pasadena in 1995, has been a regular on Oprah Winfrey’s Soul Series, and is author of 8 Habits of Love: Overcome Fear and Transform Your Life.For information, contact Keith Holeman, Director of Communications at All Saints Church, at [email protected] or (626) 583-2739.All Saints Church, 132 N.

Previous: Top 5 Markets for First-time Homebuyers Next: Fair Housing Update: Facebook and Citibank Address Discrimination Accusations On Tuesday, The MReport and VRM Mortgage Services hosted a webinar titled “Diversity: Why is it Good for Business?”. Industry experts spoke on why diversity and inclusion is good for business, while discussing myths about diversity and inclusion and teaching listeners how to implement an effective diversity strategy for their business. The webinar featured a series of questions for its expert panel to answer and discuss.Speakers during the webinar, moderated by Ben Weber, Director of Human Resources and Training at VRM Mortgage Services, included Charmaine Brown, Director of the Office of Minority and Women Inclusion at Fannie Mae; Dr. Cheryl Travis-Johnson, EVP and Chief Operating Officer at VRM Mortgage Services; Tujuanna Williams, CEO at Williams Consulting LLC; and Phyllis Wright, SVP of HR Strategies at VRM Mortgage Services.What does make multiculturalism and diversity so important for business? According to Charmaine Brown, a multicultural mindset enhances understanding and leadership skills.“Increasing your cultural competency will ultimately allow you to be a much more inclusive and successful leader,” said Brown.According to Phyllis Wright, “inclusion is the key to getting the best results.”“To include means to be a part of, and usually means to be part of something bigger than yourself,” said Wright.“You cannot have diversity without inclusion,” Wright added in her closing remarks. Additionally, Wright noted that diversity and inclusion, without proper leverage, cannot function within a business.“Diversity and inclusion needs to be seamless to the business,” she added.Dr. Cheryl Travis-Johnson also noted how neglecting multiculturalism can lead to ineffective marketing and bad business outcomes. According to Dr. Travis-Johnson, leaders need to evaluate their teams to ensure the best economic outcome with diversity.“Diversity and inclusion is a business imperative,” said Brown in her closing remarks. “But the wrong takeaway would be if its only important to the extent that it makes you profitable. It’s also the right thing to do.”Register and listen to the complete recording of the webinar here.

Women’s lacrosse prepares for No. 8 Northwestern

first_imgWith one conference win under their belts, the No. 4 Trojan lacrosse team will take on No. 9 Northwestern on Saturday at noon. Due to imminent weather conditions, the game has been rescheduled to Murdock Stadium at El Camino College in Torrance, Calif., where it will be played on their turf field. With a 1-0 record, the Trojans are looking to build off the strong momentum from last season as the reigning MPSF regular-season tournament champion. The team also made program history, competing in the NCAA quarterfinals to end the 2015-2016 season with a 20-1 overall record. In their four encounters, the Wildcats lead the all-times series 3-1 against the Trojans, but USC claimed its first win last spring with a 14-11 win in Evanston, Ill. Northwestern, which is head coach Lindsay Munday’s alma mater, presents a tough opposing team with a strong defensive unit, highlighted by sophomore goalie Mallory Weisse, who notched double-digit saves nine times in her career and earned the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week on Tuesday. Setting the tone with a 20-2 victory in its season opener against St. Mary’s, USC exhibited depth and offensive prowess with goals from 12 different Trojans. In the wake of this commanding win, the Trojans look to take it one game at a time and continue to focus on improving each and every day. “For us, it’s always about focusing on ourselves and getting better from the day before and the game before, but we need to be ready for a full 60 minute battle,” Munday said. “They’re a phenomenal team, so we need to be ready to battle.” With this competitive mindset, the Trojans are concentrating on restricting the Wildcat offense and maintaining ball control. “We want to make sure we stop some of their big shooters that rip pretty far outside,” senior attacker Kylie Drexel said. “We want to make sure that we slow them down and limit our turnovers and transition.”With the loss of 15 graduating seniors from last year’s roster, returning veteran attackers Michaela Michael, Drexel and the Trojan seniors have risen to the challenge of leading by example. “They’ve done a great job of really taking all of these younger players under their wings and being great role models and leaders for the younger group,” Munday said. This year, USC has added nine freshmen to the squad, and Munday feels that  their youth has contributed a fresh perspective and commitment to building on the success that the team has created in just five years of the program.“They bring a new energy and they just continue to buy into the foundation of the program,” Munday said. One of the key factors in the Trojans’ success has been the camaraderie between the girls and confidence that each member has in themselves and the team.“We have players that buy in and they believe — from day one of this program, people have really bought in, and they believe that we can get to where we are right now,” Munday said. “For us, that’s all we can ask as coaches — for people to work hard, to have fun and believe in themselves and each other and this group. And they’ve really done that.”last_img read more

Plans Advance to Replace Howard Commons With New Housing, Retail

first_imgBy Laura D.C. Kolnoski |FORT MONMOUTH – A long-vacant “eyesore” along Pinebrook Road in Eatontown is the latest Fort Monmouth parcel set to embark on a new life.The 63.7-acre former Howard Commons housing complex of 486 units built in 1953 in the Charles Wood Area, along with a 3,853-square-foot general purpose building, are on track to be purchased by American Properties at Monmouth LLC, part of American Properties Realty, Inc. of Woodbridge. The agreed upon price is $5.9 million.Plans are to demolish the existing structures and construct approximately 251 new residential units with up to 15,000 square feet of retail space, plus pedestrian trails, open space, streetscape improvements, and connectivity to adjacent sports fields. Adhering to requests from Eatontown officials, up to 200 units will be single-family, owner-occupied, detached residences rather than rentals. The remainder of the housing component will fill the 20 percent affordable housing requirement. Eatontown already has one of the largest numbers of rental properties in Monmouth County.Demolition and new construction should commence within 60 days of closing with the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA). Work, to include water and sewer mains to service the property, will be done in phases with completion anticipated within five years. American Properties has committed to creating 28 permanent jobs at the site or 13 permanent jobs if it opts not to build the retail component. The agreement allows the firm to use its discretion on whether to proceed with the retail aspect or devote that space to additional housing or open space.The company prevailed as the successful bidder the second time the parcel was offered in 2014. After the initial Request for Offers to Purchase was released in 2012, the selected bidder was HovWest, part of Hovnanian Enterprises of Red Bank. Citing higher than anticipated ground water on the site that would require modifications to its development plan, HovWest terminated their agreement.“American Properties listened to the request of our borough,” said Eatontown Mayor Dennis Connelly. “It was slated to be townhomes but we wanted single-family homes and wanted this proper ty cleaned up. We look for ward to seeing this.”“It’s been a long haul watching those ramshackle homes and the hazards that go with it,” added FMERA Chairman James V. Gorman.PLANS UNDERWAY FOR FIRST PUBLIC AUCTIONWhen the general public comes to a warehouse on the Fort Monmouth property at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 20 for the first small lot auction of items left behind when the Army vacated the historic base in 2011, an eclectic array of items will be up for auction. The Auctioneers Group of Neptune is working with FMERA on the event.Signs, banners, coat racks, lamps, and decades worth of mementoes are among the items being gathered and categorized in advance of the auction from several buildings. A festive community day is planned with food, music, videos of the fort’s history, and more, including hats bearing the fort’s logo. Tours are also being considered but plans for those were not finalized at press time.“This promises to be a fun event,” said Rick Harrison, FMERA’s director of facilities planning, who added that more information will be available at fortmonmouthnj.com prior to the public auction.Also being planned for the public is a celebration of the fort’s 100th anniversary this June. FMERA staff has begun preparing for the event, details of which will be announced soon, officials said.This article was first published in the April 27-May 4, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Clayton Homes, Empire Construction Team Up for Multiunit Modular

first_imgModular builder Clayton Homes has partnered with Empire Construction, a specialist in multiunit restoration, to bring what the companies are calling “e-living” features to apartment living.The business strategy behind the partnership is to bring the cost and production efficiencies of Clayton’s modular designs – which the company has applied to single-family construction and small-scale, affordable-green offerings such as its i-house – to projects serviced by Empire, which has extensive experience in multifamily construction and remodeling. The six e-living dwellings in this project, called Raintree Apartments, will be built from renewable materials, the companies say, and are designed to be energy efficient both in construction and operation.Each unit is about 850 sq. ft., with two bedrooms, two baths, and a kitchen, living room, dining room, and washer-dryer closet.Clayton, which produces its housing components indoors, says its modular building method generates less than 2% scrap, or about 50% less waste than site-built construction. The companies expect the Raintree units to be completed in December. Five of the units will be occupied by families while the sixth will serve as a model home.Based in Maryville, Tennessee, and owned by Berkshire-Hathaway Company, Clayton operates 35 construction facilities nationwide. Empire is based in Knoxville.Clayton representative Kelly Williams told GBA that each apartment will meet Energy Star requirements and include Energy Star appliances and low-E windows. Insulation in the units exceeds 2006 IECC requirements, and all ductwork is contained within the insulated envelope and will have less than 5% leakage.Williams said Clayton and Empire are using Raintree to help market their collaborative modular-production enterprise to developers whose projects might lend themselves to e-living apartments.last_img read more
