From Staff Reports and Second Harvest Food Bank of Central FloridaBefore we get to the Apopka resident-hero part, meet Alaina and Nola.These two precious girls are best friends. And like best friends, they have many things in common, like sharing a love of unicorns and silly songs. Every day after school they play games, do homework and have a warm meal at a Second Harvest Food Bank Kids Café.Alaina and NolaOn a recent afternoon they enjoyed chicken tenders, tator tots, oranges and milk.“My favorite is the oranges,” said Alaina.Nola had her own favorite, and shared with a sweet smile, “I like the chicken fingers!”Ok, maybe best friends don’t always like the same things.“I want to take the seeds home,” explained Alaina. “I’ll plant an orange tree…and then… I’ll grow my own oranges for orange juice!”“I love orange juice!” exclaimed Nola.And then they both broke out giggling.Moments like these are important, but this one almost didn’t happen. Over the summer, Alaina’s family moved to a new apartment, which meant she is attending a new school this year, without Nola. However, the good news is that Alaina still gets to spend afternoons with her best friend in a safe and familiar place, thanks to Second Harvest’s Kids Café.So here’s where the Apopka resident… hero… comes in – Nancy Brumbaugh.Brumbaugh has served at Second Harvest Food Bank since 2014, working first as the Food Service Director when she was hired, and now, congratulations are due as she was recently promoted to Vice President of Food Services!Nancy BrumbaughOne of the special departments Brumbaugh gets to manage as the new VP is the innovative initiatives department. Here initiatives are created and implemented to reach populations that are most vulnerable of going hungry, such as children and seniors.Children like Alaina and Nola. Brumbaugh makes the magic happen for kids all over Central Florida, through initiatives like Kids Cafes, which keeps the smiles coming for giggling best friends.Brumbaugh will also oversee the production kitchen, including menu development, for the summer food service program as well as all the Kids Cafes, which provides meals to anyone 18 and under.Besides being a hero to the young, Brumbaugh is quite creative in other realms as well, spearheading the launch of Second Harvest’s signature retail product line, A Spoon Full of Hope, and most recently, a limited-time craft beer with Hourglass Brewing. Proceeds from these products are put right back into the mission of feeding hope while fighting hunger.Brumbaugh is definitely a hero-resident of Apopka you’d want to hang around! She has her hands and heart pretty full though, as besides all that, she’s married with four children, seven grandchildren and two grand-dogs.Thank you Nancy for all you do!Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a private, nonprofit organization that collects, stores and distributes donated food to more than 550 feeding partners in six Central Florida counties: Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia. Last year, with the help of numerous donors, volunteers and a caring, committed community, the food bank distributed enough food for 73 million meals to partner programs such as food pantries, soup kitchens, women’s shelters, senior centers, day care centers and Kids Cafes.Kids Café provides nutritionally balanced meals on week days to after school programs during the school year. Site partners such as community centers, churches and parks and recreation centers serve as a host to the program and provide a variety of activities that are enriching, entertaining and designed for the best of friends.

A newly developed synthetic lining that coats the small intestine may have potential to treat conditions, ranging from lactose intolerance to diabetes and obesity, according to investigators from Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.A team of researchers has been working on an innovative way of sustainably delivering drugs and influencing nutrient absorption in the gut by using the gastrointestinal synthetic epithelial lining (GSEL) system. Because GSEL is designed to coat the small intestine, an organ that plays a key role in drug and nutrient absorption, researchers have demonstrated the GSEL system’s ability to adhere to segments of the gastrointestinal tract from pigs and humans. In pig models, the team has reported potential applications in treating not only diabetes, but tropical diseases such as schistosomiasis.Image showing fresh resected tissue specimens from porcine small intestine without (left) and with (right) ex vivo GSEL coating. Credit: Junwei Li/Science Translational MedicineResults of the team’s proof-of-concept studies are published in Science Translational Medicine.“The small intestine is an amazing organ — it’s the main site of drug and nutrient absorption and digestion and plays an important role as a barrier. We recognized its potential: If we could specifically target this location, it would open up new avenues for drug delivery and nutritional modulation,” said corresponding author C. Giovanni Traverso, a gastroenterologist and biomedical engineer in the Division of Gastroenterology at the Brigham.The GSEL system combines two nature-inspired innovations. The first takes advantage of a chemical reaction triggered by catalase, an enzyme that helps break down hydrogen peroxide into oxygen in the small intestine. The second is a mussel-inspired tissue adhesive, similar to what mollusks use to attach themselves to rocks. Using these two concepts, Traverso, first author Junwei Li, and colleagues designed the synthetic gut lining. Their goal is to develop a capsule, pill or gel that could be ingested, but for now, the team has tested administering the GSEL system endoscopically — that is, directly inserting it into the small intestine.To test the lining’s therapeutic potential, the team looked at pig models for testing lactose intolerance, glucose absorption and the delivery of praziquantel, a drug for treating schistosomiasis. The team found evidence that the lining could deliver the drug in a sustained way, potentially reducing treatment to a once-a-day dose instead of three time a day. It also improved lactose digestion and regulated glucose absorption, indicating its potential for treating Type 2 diabetes and preventing obesity.,In order to move from pig models into human trials, several hurdles remain, including further developing the GSEL system into an ingestible form. For now, Traverso, Li and colleagues are focused on continuing to evaluate safety in preclinical studies.“For our studies, safety is a key focus of our work,” said Traverso. “There are indications that this system can help patients suffering from many diseases, but before we can translate this technology for humans, we need to fully validate its safety and the effects of chronic use.”This work was supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation grants (OPP1179091), the NIH (EB000244) and funds from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, MIT.Adapted from a Brigham and Women’s news release by Haley Bridger.
George Morris II and Travon Burke will miss Syracuse’s 3:30 game against North Carolina State on Saturday due to upper-body injuries, SU Athletics announced in an injury report Thursday night.Morris, a redshirt freshman, has appeared in all five games for the Orange. He’s third on the team with 26 rushing attempts, totaling 114 yards on the ground and 20 in the air. Morris ripped off a 22-yard run against Wagner. He has also returned kicks in all five games, averaging 19 yards per return.Burke, a junior, made the team as a walk-on for 2011 preseason camp and switched from linebacker to running back early in camp. He saw time against Wagner, Tulane and Clemson.The report did not list any other players as doubtful, questionable or probable. Cornerback Brandon Reddish returns for Syracuse after missing the Clemson game on Saturday with a lower-body injury.

2. Sergio Leone: Renault 18 DieselA little known fact of movie trivia is that acclaimed director Sergio Leone’s (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly) last production was a car commercial for Renault 18, a French station wagon. Reuniting Leone with his longtime composer Ennio Morricone, the spot was one of many the director did for European television throughout his career.3. Martin Scorsese: Dolce & GabbanaFeaturing a trio of stars (Scorsese, Matthew McConaughey, and Scarlett Johansson), the short film spot Street of Dreams was made for the luxury Italian fashion company Dolce & Gabanna. The film is a high-concept Italian neorealist vignette set in a seemingly empty (and beautiful) black-and-white New York City.Scorsese’s brand is a great match for the Italian fashion company, as Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have built their brand on similar Sicilian and Catholic roots. While Scorsese maintains that the project had “always been inspired by the black-and-white neorealist Italian cinema of the early 1960s,” McConaughey was a little more blunt about the investment.I like the financial aspect of the relationship. I don’t want to work with a brand I don’t believe in, that I don’t care about. But I like that it’s a good give-and-take and I get a nice pay cheque – that’s very good for me and helps me live my life. — Matthew McConaughey via Telegraph UK4. Ridley Scott: AppleArguably regarded as the greatest commercial of all time, Steve Jobs and an upstart Apple Computers hired Scott to help take the world by storm during the 1984 Super Bowl. The spot, an homage to George Orwell’s novel 1984, was a shot at Apple’s chief competitors IBM and served as the flashpoint to Apple’s emergence on the personal computer scene. In a behind-the-scenes featurette on the commercial, Scott talks about how he’d always viewed commercials as films. Not even Academy Award-winning directors are above the commercial paycheck now and then. Here are seven of the best commercials that were directed by famous directors.Chances are that many of your favorite famous directors have made mainstream television commercials that you’ve seen hundreds of times before. You may not have realized it, as television commercials don’t laud their writers, directors, and stars the same way as major motion pictures. However, some of the biggest names in Hollywood have all taken commercial gigs to help companies sell their products to the masses.Once a director becomes big enough to have a signature style, that style (along with the director attached to it) becomes a commodity of its own. As we’ve seen in the recent release of H&M’s new Wes Anderson-produced commercial short film Come Together, brands are keenly aware of how to translate a director’s name and style to sell a product.Commercials are a big part of the video production industry, so if you’re currently in (or considering) a career in film and video, commercials can be a great way to build your brand’s worth and make a quick buck. Here are some of the best examples of how some famous directors have successfully cashed in.1. Spike Jonze: IkeaThe ingenuitous (Editor’s note: yes, apparently, that is a word) Spike Jonze rose to fame in the 1990s with a kinetic DIY-skateboarding aesthetic which was perfect for music videos and commercials. Perhaps directing one of the most famous (ultimately unaired) commercials for Gap, he was able to touch heartstrings in audiences with his 2002 commercial for Ikea (above) before ultimately reaffirming his commercial vitality with his recent long-form ad for KENZO World (below). 5. Steven Spielberg: British PetroleumAs you can see, even the most successful directors are not above lending their talents for the right price. Perhaps the best case in point could be Steven Spielberg shilling for BP back in 1994. The video is squarely in the vintage Spielberg adventure model and even includes effects done by ILM and music composed by John Williams.6. Spike Lee: NikePerhaps regarded as Spike Lee’s most iconic contribution to pop culture at large, his 1991 Is It the Shoes? commercial helped catapult Michael Jordan and Nike’s brands into mainstream success (along with Spike Lee’s as well).The commercial was the birth of a series of “Mars Blackmon” spots which Nike would revisit with Spike Lee for years to come. It also squarely tethered Spike Lee’s likeness and directorial style with the NBA and hip hop culture for the rest of his career.7. David Lynch:Playstation 2Probably the self-branded weirdest of the bunch, David Lynch’s campaign of commercials for Sony’s launch of the Playstation 2 back in 2000 stands out for… well… it’s weirdness. The black-and-white spots played before movies in theaters and included several Lynchian icons such as shadowy hidden rooms with odd talking characters. You can watch a behind-the-scenes feature on the making of the campaign below. What’s your favorite famous director commercial? Let us know in the comments!

The people who care about you will tell you that the effort is required and believe that you are capable of exerting that energy.Avoid people who tell you that you don’t have to do something that is required of you when they don’t already have what you want. They are not credible, and it’s likely they weren’t good at what they are telling you that you must do. The people who have what you want will tell you what is required, and that it was more difficult and took longer than they expected.Avoid advice from pure theorists who have no experience with the practical application of what they suggest you should do. Good ideas and good intentions are important, but messy execution is how those results are produced. Look to people who have actually executed.Avoid people who tell you what you want to hear when they profit from you taking their advice. Motives matter. The advice you should pay closest attention to is the advice that makes you uncomfortable. A difficult truth is always better than the easy lie.Avoid people who promise you fast results and overnight success. Fast results, when they are obtained, are ephemeral.

Lasting results follow the laws of the universe: You plant in the Spring, you harvest in the Fall.Avoid people who have lowered their own standards and who would ask you to lower yours. Their advice, even when given with good intentions, isn’t given for your benefit. They’ve given up on themselves. You are still pure potential. You should continually raise your standards.Avoid advice on how to do something from someone who wasn’t able to do what you want to do. Their advice will only be their own justification for failing and a way to protect their own ego. Listen instead to someone who failed on their attempts and persisted until they found success.If you are going to listen to advice, first determine whose advice is worth taking.

That’s why LeBron going to The Finals seven years in a row, to me, is one of the most amazing accomplishments ever for a player in this league.”For all the talent in the Warriors’ lineup, players still take their cues from Kerr.And since he wasn’t panicking after a 4-3 start to this season, neither were they.

Newcastle legend Shearer: Almiron has no confidence whatsoeverby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveToon legend Alan Shearer was unimpressed by Newcastle United’s performance in their 0-0 draw with Brighton.United had chances to win but they had far inferior possession statistics and were indebted to Fabian Schar for keeping out Aaron Mooy’s shot. Even the late introduction of Andy Carroll to attempt to spark the team into life didn’t work. Analysing the match, Shearer said of his former side: “You can see why both of these teams are struggling to score. I thought it was a poor game. Brighton were the better team, Newcastle were really poor.“But still had two very, very good chances they should have scored from. The first one Almiron had no confidence whatsoever. I never fancied him to score. He desperately needs a goal, still hasn’t scored.“And then Joelinton finds himself eight yards out and with a free header (from a corner). He should score.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

MONTREAL – HNZ Group reported a $6.4 million third-quarter net profit Monday, which was nearly four times higher than a year ago.The Montreal-based helicopter services company (TSX:HNZ) said its net income amounted to 50 cents per share, including discontinued operations.Net income from continuing operations, attributable to common shareholders, was $6.3 million or 49 cents per share.Those compared with $1.7 million or 13 cents per share of net income including discontinued operations and $2.3 million or 18 cents per share from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2016.Revenue grew to $72 million from $54.7 million of revenue, attributed to new contracts including a multi-year deal to support ExxonMobil Canada and Encana Corp.’s activities offshore Nova Scotia.HNZ’s chief executive recently proposed buying the company and then selling some of its offshore operations in the southern hemisphere to PHI Inc., subject to shareholder and other approvals.HNZ’s operations in Canada, the United States and Antarctica would remain with the company under the leadership of chief executive Don Wall.
GENOA, Italy – Italy’s president demanded guarantees Saturday that all the nation’s roads are safe following the Genoa highway bridge collapse, after he hugged and comforted mourners at a state funeral in the grieving port city.President Sergio Mattarella spoke quietly to victims’ families before the ceremony began on Genoa’s fairgrounds. Usually reserved in demeanour, Mattarella was embraced tightly for a long moment by one distraught woman.He then took his place with other Italian leaders, including Premier Giuseppe Conte and the transportation minister, in the packed yet cavernous hall.Afterward, Mattarella called the funeral, which took place on a day of national mourning, “a moment of grief, shared grief, by all of Italy.”One mourner, a local man who would only give his first name, Alessandro, held a placard that read: “In Italy, we prefer ribbon-cuttings to maintenance” — referring to the country’s dilapidated infrastructure.“These are mistakes that keep on repeating. And now, for the umpteenth time, angels have flown into heaven and paid for the mistakes of other human beings,” Alessandro said.As the city honoured its dead, the toll from Tuesday’s bridge collapse rose unofficially Saturday to 43 with the discovery of four more bodies in the rubble and the death in the hospital of the most severely injured survivor.Firefighter Stefano Zanut told Sky TG24 TV they had extracted from tons of broken concrete the crushed car that an Italian couple on vacation with their 9-year-old daughter had been travelling in.Zanut said the last body pulled out of the wreckage was that of a young Italian man, an employee of Genoa’s trash company, who was working under the bridge when it collapsed. The man’s mother had refused to leave a tent set up a few hundred yards away from the rubble until his body was found.RAI state radio said authorities now believe there are no more missing in the tragedy.Later, San Martino Hospital said a Romanian truck driver who had suffered severe cranial and chest injuries in the bridge collapse died Saturday evening.The families of 19 victims their loved ones’ coffins brought to the hall for the funeral Mass led by Genoa’s archbishop, Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, who said the tragedy “gashed the heart of Genoa.”“The initial disbelief and then the growing dimension of the catastrophe, the general bewilderment, the tumult of emotions, the pressing “Whys?” have touched us yet again and in a brutal way showed the inexorable fragility of the human condition,” he said.Among the coffins were those of two young Albanian Muslim men who lived and worked in Italy. Their remains were blessed at the end of the Catholic service by a Genoa imam, who drew applause when he prayed for God to “protect Italy and all Italians.”Players and managers from the city’s two major league soccer teams, Genoa and Sampdoria, also attended after their weekend matches were postponed out of respect for the dead.At other bridge funerals on Friday, angry mourners blamed authorities of negligence and incompetence for failing to keep the bridge safe.During the state funeral, applause rang out and many fought back tears Saturday as a prelate read out the first names of some 30 victims who have been identified. The mourners also applauded Italian firefighters, police and volunteers for the civil protection department as they arrived.Mattarella toured what’s left of the Morandi Bridge, which broke apart in a fierce rainstorm, sending a long stretch of roadbed crashing 45 metres (150 feet) into a dry river bed near several apartment buildings. Those buildings have been evacuated and authorities say they will have to be demolished.After the funeral, Mattarella told reporters the bridge collapse “is an unacceptable tragedy.” He demanded that “responsibility be ascertained with rigour” for the collapse of the bridge, which linked two major highways, one leading to Milan and the other toward France.Prosecutors say they are focusing their probe on possible design flaws or inadequate maintenance of the highway bridge, which was completed in 1967.“I, too, have travelled over this bridge many times,” said Mattarella, demanding that authorities commit to carrying out their “duty to guarantee the safety of our roads.”Responding to harsh criticism, the Italian highway company in charge of the collapsed bridge offered Saturday to build a new bridge in eight months.Giovanni Castellucci, CEO of Autostrade per l’Italia, the company that manages Italian highways and bridges, told reporters it has a plan to demolish what’s left of the largely concrete 51-year-old Morandi Bridge and build a “less imposing” steel one.Italy’s government, however, has begun procedures to revoke the company’s concession and has vowed that Autostrade per l’Italia will never again run the nation’s roads.Castellucci declined to talk about the government’s stance. He said even though the cause of Tuesday’s bridge collapse hasn’t been determined “we apologize” since “perceptions count.”Castellucci also said the company would provide funds to help the hundreds of people evacuated from apartment buildings in the shadow of the bridge.But the Italy’s new populist government quickly spurned both the offer of help and the apology.“Let’s be very clear, the state won’t take charity from Autostrade,” Deputy Premier Luigi Di Maio, who attended the funeral, said in a Facebook post. “We’ll insist on credible reimbursement, and there won’t be any bartering. The only road the government will follow is that of going forward with revocation procedures.”At the state funeral, the names of the dead were placed on each coffin before the altar. Photographs, flowers and on one coffin a signed sports jersey, a sports trophy and a stuffed animal added personal touches.Players from a local team in Italy’s Serie D soccer, Campi Corniglianese, came to pay tribute to one of their own. Among the two Albanian dead was Marius Djerri, 22, who played for the team and was on his way to work for a cleaning company along with his compatriot when their truck plunged into the abyss.“(Marius was) a golden boy. Maybe not the strongest player on the pitch, but as a person, I would like all players to be like him,” team president Augustus Pintus said.___D’Emilio reported from Rome.___Frances D’Emilio is on twitter at www.twitter.com/fdemilio
