Mondo selected for Rutland regional marketing effort

first_imgVermont Business Magazine One of Vermont’s Rising Stars is about to start marketing one of Vermont’s rising regions. Mondo Mediaworks, headed by Luke Stafford, a 2016 Vermont Business Magazine Rising Star, has been selected from a field of nearly two dozen bidders to create regional marketing campaigns aimed at rebranding the greater-Rutland region, putting to bed myths about a lack of local jobs, and reversing downward population trends.Luke Stafford, Mondo Mediaworks.“We received bids from across the country, but in Mondo found a Vermont company with a keen focus on creativity, a love for the state, and an infectious energy,” said Mary Ann Goulette, who co-chairs the committee leading the marketing initiative.  “After a painstaking process that included review of 18 proposals, interviews with four semi-finalists and a second round with two finalists, the committee unanimously selected Mondo.”“Mondo’s creativity, demonstrated through their portfolio, interviews and an assignment given to the two finalists, made the final decision clear,” committee co-chair Steve Costello said.  “We devoted hundreds of man-hours to the selection, and in the end found ourselves selecting not just a marketer, but a company that demonstrated a remarkable ability to collaborate, inspire and excite.”Stafford has long been an advocate for economic and creative development in southern Vermont.  Mondo’s mission is dedicated to supporting the region, and outlines Stafford’s team’s plan for strategic, long-term economic growth of Mondo’s hometown of Brattleboro and the state of Vermont.“When I saw the Rutland request for proposals, I thought ‘My entire career has led to this project,’” Stafford said.  “For Mondo and for me, this is more than a job. It’s what we have striven to do since day one: build community through economic development, create opportunities for young Vermonters, and help others discover the magic that is Vermont. I have never been so excited about a project.”The campaigns will have three key focuses – population growth; improved tourism marketing; and an intensive effort to retain more local students and young professionals.  Stafford promised some unique campaigns using various forms of media, with a focus on digital media.       The marketing initiative sprang from collaboration between Rutland Economic Development Corp., Rutland Redevelopment Authority, Rutland Region Chamber of Commerce, I Love Rutland, the Downtown Rutland Partnership, Killington-Pico Association, Killington Resort and Green Mountain Power. More than $200,000, including $100,000 from the City of Rutland, has been pledged and donated to support the first year of the initiative. In addition to the city, key donors include Carpenter and Costin, Casella’s, Foley Family of Businesses, Green Mountain Power, Heritage Family Credit Union, Mountain Times, REDC, RRCC, Rutland Regional Medical Center, Castleton University, Vermont Electric Power Company (VELCO), the Town of West Rutland, the Town of Pittsford, and Town of Fair Haven.  Rutland Town, Mendon, Killington, Middletown Springs, and Clarendon are voting on funding requests on Town Meeting Day.Stopping and reversing Rutland County’s population decline is critical to the economic health of the state and the Rutland/Killington region, and is at the heart of the effort.  While Rutland City and the region have made significant strides toward revitalization, growing our population and visitation are vital to the region’s future, organizers said.REDC Executive Director Lyle Jepson and RRCC Executive Director Mary Cohen said they were thrilled with the decision to hire Mondo, and expected fresh, creative and surprising campaigns.“Mondo specializes in creating the unexpected,” Jepson said.  “They demonstrated an ability to think and create quickly.  Luke has created a team of bright, active minds that will produce campaigns that are new and different and capture the imagination.  I can’t wait to see what they can help us achieve.”“Mondo will help us think differently about our region and our strengths, and how we talk about the region,” RRCC Executive Director Mary Cohen said.  “They have produced fantastic results for their clients in cost-effective, innovative campaigns.  And most importantly, the company is filled with sharp, young Vermonters who chose to come here or chose to stay here – our primary audience as we seek to recreate a strong regional future.”Source: Rutland Region Chamber of Commerce 2.17.2017last_img read more

Flood Watch for Vermont – be attentive to rising rivers and streams

first_imgVermont Business Magazine The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Flood Watch for all of Vermont through this weekend.  Rain, snowmelt, and thawing river ice could cause localized flooding in areas of Vermont from Friday evening through Sunday night. NWS says the greatest flood threat will occur during or shortly after heavy rainfall.  The flood threat will also be elevated close to rivers where there exists a potential for ice breakup and jams.  Those who live near waterways should monitor water levels and seek high ground should flooding occur.Vermonters are reminded to stay clear of any floodwaters on roads by driving safe routes that are over high ground, and never driving across a flooded road.  A car can be swept away by unseen currents or due to washouts on flooded roads.Monitor traditional and social media for forecasts and other information.NWS also says the rain and warm temperatures will weaken all ice surfaces and venturing out onto lakes and rivers is not recommended.  We emphasize extreme caution as Vermont has seen multiple deaths this winter due to individuals falling through thin ice.The Vermont Division of Emergency Management & Homeland Security and other state agencies are monitoring the weather and will staff the state Emergency Operations Center to assist communities if needed.Cities and towns can contact the DEMHS Watch Officer through established protocols at any time should they need resources.For weather, road, or emergency updates sent directly to your e-mail or cell phone sign up for Vermont Alert at http://www.vtalert.gov(link is external).Forecast information: www.weather.gov/btv(link is external) or www.weather.gov/aly(link is external).Monitor social media for additional information:DEMHS on Facebook: www.facebook.com/vermontemergencymanagement(link is external)DEMHS on Twitter: twitter.com/vemvt(link is external) (@vemvt)VTrans on Facebook: www.facebook.com/vtransontheroad(link is external)VTrans on Twitter: twitter.com/511vt(link is external) (@511vt)National Weather Service Burlington on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NWSBurlington/(link is external)National Weather Service Burlington on Twitter: @NWSBurlingtonNational Weather Service Albany on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NWSAlbany/(link is external)National Weather Service Albany on Twitter: @NWSAlbanySource: Vermont Division of Emergency Management & Homeland Security 2.24.2017last_img read more

Diversity and Inclusion in Endurance Sports Panel at 2020 Endurance Coaching…

first_imgTrainingPeaks has today announced the addition of a Diversity and Inclusion in Endurance Sports Panel. This will be hosted live at the 2020 Endurance Coaching Summit, which is virtual this year and free to all registrants on November 17th-19thThe panel will discuss topics such as diversity in endurance sports, the unique obstacles that minorities face and it will aim to explore ways to inspire meaningful change.Speakers include Nike Running Coach Jes Woods (Moderator), American cyclist Rahsaan Bahati, Mental Endurance Coach Vanessa Faye Foerster, Paratriathlon Head Coach Jonathon Riall, and influential cyclist Yewande Adesida.“It’s no secret that there are few BIPOC (black, indigenous and people of colour) participants in endurance sports,” said Jes Woods. “If you’re looking at sports like IRONMAN or ultra running through photographs, much of the imagery shows that there isn’t a large amount of variety in representation, and we all need to work collectively to change this.“The goal of this panel discussion is to give the attendees actionable takeaways and recommendations to push for change and break down the lack of diversity in endurance sports.”TrainingPeaks co-founder and Chief Evangelist, Dirk Friel said, “Our goal is to bring together a diverse panel of endurance experts to have a thoughtful discussion about the challenges our sports face as it relates to diversity. We hope that by having an honest conversation about our industry, we can work together to create a more inclusive community for all.”To help drive change, TrainingPeaks has teamed up charitable organizations around the world to promote open access to endurance sports for everyone, including HBCUs Outside. Participants can visit ECS and donate to show support to one of these organizations. For every donation received, TrainingPeaks will match dollar-for-dollar up to US$20,000.ECS will also offer the opportunity to attend sessions highlighting diversity and inclusion in endurance sports. These include:Building an Anti-Racist Running Industry with Alison DesirThe Invisible Truth: Diversity and Inclusivity in the Pro Peloton with Carol Austin, andInspiring More Women to Coach with Holly Seear.summit.trainingpeaks.com Relatedlast_img read more

Salvaging a damaged child’s life

first_img Jan 15, 2016 Jan Pudlow Senior Editor Regular News Salvaging a damaged child’s life Lawyer embraces boy once charged as an adult for murder at age 12 MARY COXE, “honorary grandmother” and GAL, left, travels 132.5 miles every Saturday to visit Cristian Fernandez, center, at Cypress Creek Juvenile Offender Correctional Center, to deliver encouragement, laughs, and hope. Also pictured is Melissa Nelson, one of Cristian’s lawyers in the high-profile case that first landed him in adult court when he was 12.The first time Jacksonville lawyer Mary Coxe tried to pat the head of Cristian Fernandez — once a 12-year-old child indicted for first-degree murder as an adult — he recoiled like she was a rattlesnake.“When somebody has been in lockup for two years, you don’t just come at them,” he told her.Now he’s 16, locked in Cypress Creek Juvenile Offender Correctional Center in Lecanto, in Citrus County, where he was sent in 2013, after pleading guilty to manslaughter for the death of his 2-year-old half-brother.Now, he lets his “honorary grandmother” and court-appointed “independent” guardian ad litem rub his head and hold his hand, and kiss him hello and goodbye.“He’s just one of my sons at this point,” said Coxe. “It is the highest priority of anything I do. I love this kid. In the beginning, it was to salvage a life. Now I feel like he is family. It has gone beyond altruism. It’s good for me, too.”Every Saturday, as she has for the past two and a half years, Coxe makes the 132.5-mile trip to spend three hours with Cristian, a ward of the state who will be freed when he turns 19.“I tell him I love him no matter what, and that I believe God loves and forgives him no matter what, so he can maybe love and forgive himself,” said Coxe, now retired from practicing law.She’s the wife of former Florida Bar President Hank Coxe, who was part of the “Dream Team” of pro bono lawyers who worked out the plea with juvenile sanctions, along with Melissa Nelson, Buddy Schultz, and others.The high-profile criminal case landed Cristian’s mother behind bars for her plea of aggravated manslaughter for waiting nearly eight hours to take her unconscious toddler to the hospital. Her parental rights were terminated.Mary Coxe knew Cristian needed someone, and she stepped up.“I do not wear my religion on my sleeve, but I felt called to do this,” she said.At first, Cristian was very quiet and reserved, as Mary Coxe tried to make him laugh, in what she called “a horrible interview room of a desk and two chairs.” Now, they meet in a large cinder block meeting room, ironically called “the chapel,” and talk about sports, books, and rap music.They don’t talk about what happened that day in March 2011, when prosecutors say 2-year-old David Galarraga was slammed into a bookshelf while his mother left him and his 4-year-old sister alone with Cristian.Mary Coxe does not believe Cristian meant to hurt his half-brother.“My brothers fought all the time, but they were the same size. All little brothers I’ve known fight. He didn’t realize what he was doing. I don’t think he bashed his head against the bookcase. And it was pretty much conclusively established that had his mom taken him to the hospital right away, this would not have been a fatality,” Mary Coxe said.She notes the irony that Cypress Creek is the best place Cristian has ever lived. No one beats him. He is fed three meals a day plus snacks. He goes to school every day. If he feels sick, there is on-site medical care. He has his own room with a bed. He can play chess, find books in the library, and create art.But, she said, it is also the worst place he has ever lived, a facility surrounded by razor wire atop 12-foot fences.“No one there loves him. No one knows his story or cares how it ends,” Mary Coxe said. “I know his story and I care how it ends.”She recounted Cristian’s story, when she and Hank were recently honored by Florida’s Children First as the Northeast Area Children’s Advocates of the Year. She told the other children’s advocates gathered at the awards ceremony to keep up the lobbying, because “every child in the system does need a lawyer, a good lawyer.. . . Keep up the pressure against the abusive overuse of direct filing.“It is my hope that never again will a 12-year-old, who is not old enough for a PG-13 movie or to play middle-school sports, that never again will a 12-year-old child, or even a 14-year-old child, have to face the specter of extended incarceration and unimaginable abuse at the hands of older, hardened criminals.”Mary Coxe shared what she knows about Cristian’s life:“He was born to a 12-year-old mother. His biological father was prosecuted for impregnating her. No one was there to help his mother, except her own drug addict mother. When he was 18 months old, he was hospitalized and it was discovered he had never had any immunizations. No one stepped in.“When he was 2 1/2, he was found naked and alone, wandering in a motel parking lot at 3 a.m. with no caretaker to be found. No one intervened.“After he was found alone in a trailer with no electricity at age 3, he and his mother were placed in foster care until her 18th birthday. He was sexually abused by other residents of the home. No one helped him. As soon as she got out, his mother took up with a man who physically abused Cristian for the next five years.“His mother had three more children. When Cristian complained to her about the abuse, she did nothing. No one was there to help him.“When he was 11, his step-father hit him so badly that his eye was damaged and his school sent him to the hospital. Besides the eye damage, X-rays revealed multiple old fractures of his ribs. When the police were en route to arrest the step-father, he killed himself. Cristian became the man of the house. For the next four months, his mother left him alone with the three preschoolers for extended periods, including overnights. There was no one to help him.”When his 2-year-old half-brother was injured and later died, Cristian was a 12-year-old sixth-grader, charged as an adult and locked up in adult jail in solitary confinement for more than 30 days. He never saw his siblings again.Mary Coxe said Cristian loves his mother, Biannela Susana, who visits him every few weeks accompanied by a family therapist, and Cristian is receiving “trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy.”Can this teen overcome the damage of his past and live a good, productive life?“It’s something I hope and pray for,” Mary Coxe said. “I’m not an expert. I’m not a psychologist. I don’t know. I can’t say if you can damage a child for this long and have them recover and be redeemed to normalcy. But I am a big believer in redemption.”For the next 25 months that Cristian will remain locked up, Mary Coxe vows to visit him every Saturday. Like she always does, she’ll switch the TV from the Hallmark Channel to ESPN. They’ll talk sports. She’ll quiz him about books he’s read. She’ll try her hardest to make him laugh.She was not allowed to give him anything for Christmas unless she gave the same thing to all 96 juveniles at the facility. All the treats must be in sealed bags. So, once again, she prepared 96 gift bags bulging with sealed snacks for her holiday visit.And when he does get out as a 19-year-old adult, Mary Coxe said, they plan to still spend Saturday afternoons from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. together. She will invite him to her home. He’ll be on probation with a condition not to have contact with children.Mary Coxe said she will try to have that condition relaxed, because she said she would feel comfortable letting Cristian play with her grandsons, now 1 and 3. She’s seen how gentle he is and how his face lights up when a visitor for another juvenile boy lets Cristian hold her grandbaby.Cristian talks about getting a job and paying back his lawyers somehow, someday.“I tell him, ‘The way you pay them back is to do well. Be somebody,’” Mary Coxe said.“It’s in Cristian’s hands. Nobody can make him do well in school or participate in therapy. It’s his choice. He knows that and I tell him that. We talk a lot about choices and accepting responsibility for choices you make. He gets it. I have great faith he’s going to be OK.”last_img read more

Emotional support from parents predicts physiological and psychological responses to stress

first_imgLinkedIn Share on Twitter Share Email Pinterestcenter_img Parental responses to offspring’s emotion in childhood influences their ability to deal with stressful situations as young adults, according to a study recently published in Physiology & Behavior.It is thought that our ability to regulate emotions is partly determined by the strategies used by our parents to deal with our emotions in childhood. This is known as emotion socialization. Parents who encourage expression of negative emotions are likely to produce children that feel comfortable communicating their feelings and regulating their emotions. Whereas, preventing children from expressing negative emotions can result in an individual who struggles with emotions and dislikes openly discussing negative emotions.Physiological responses to stress include activation of the autonomic nervous system and the activation of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis that causes a series of events resulting in the release of cortisol. Psychological responses to stress include negative emotions and cognitive effort to overcome the stressor known as, effort mobilization. There appears to be differences in the incidence of stress-related diseases among ethnicities. However, little research has compared the effect of emotion socialization and response to stress in different ethnic groups. Share on Facebook The study conducted by Jinhong Guo, Sylvie Mrug and David Knight (University of Alabama at Birmingham) aimed to investigate the gender and ethnic differences between parental emotion socialization and physiological and psychological responses to stress. 973 young adults took part in the study where they completed a social stress test and were measured for heart rate, blood pressure and salivary cortisol.The results showed that individuals with emotionally supportive parents reported higher levels of effort mobilization, which means that the individual was able to put more effort into overcoming the stressor. Emotionally unsupportive parents resulted in increased negativity during the stress test, this finding was amplified in female and African American participants.The study also found that emotionally unsupportive parents resulted in decreased levels of cortisol in females and African Americans. This is thought to be because repeated exposure to stress in childhood (in this case from harsh parenting) affects the HPA functioning and reduces physiological reactivity to stress over time.Overall, the study highlights the unique way that emotion socialization impacts stress responses in adulthood, as well as the differences between gender and ethnic groups. The results from this study can be used in future research to gain a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms that produce the stress responses. Further understanding of parenting methods will be important for developing interventions that target specific groups of adolescents.last_img read more
