Suzanne Morgan with her daughter Morgan Pfau, a senior at OCHS With the help of an Ocean City High School student and her mother, the high school has taken a major initiative to support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s (AFSP) event, Out of the Darkness National Walk. Each year, Suzanne Morgan and her daughter Morgan Pfau, a senior at the high school, participate in the walk to raise awareness and to remove the stigma of mental illness in our society.In order to walk, participants must each raise $1,000, except for students, who need to raise $700. To help Morgan raise the $700, the high school STOP Club will be selling ‘Honor Beads’ during community lunch and in the classrooms to allow students the opportunity to donate. ‘Honor Beads’ come in a variety of colors that show one’s personal connection to the cause and help identify others who share a similar experience. To learn more: http://www.theovernight.org/?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1043 “It is wonderful that Sue decided to come to us with the idea of spreading awareness for the Out of the Darkness National Walk. Having personal connections within the District to such great causes like this one, certainly help draw more attention from the community.”- Matthew Carey, Director of Student Services for Ocean City SchoolsAlthough many participants of the Out of the Darkness National Walk choose to walk individually, Sue and her daughter Morgan walk for “Team Renza,” remembering Richelle Renza, who was lost to depression in 2001. They also walk to remember and celebrate the two lives that our community recently lost to suicide, Maliha Chowdury and John DelGrande. The net proceeds raised for the walk benefit AFSP, funding research, advocacy, survivor support, education, and awareness programs. It helps to prevent suicide and to assist those affected by it.“In the US, a person dies by suicide every 13.3 minutes, claiming more than 39,500 lives each year. Raising the money to participate in The Overnight Walk is a monumental task, but while doing this, we raise awareness for mental illness and suicide. It is the most inspiring event we have ever been a part of.”- Suzanne MorganPeople walk to acknowledge and change the fact that suicide claims more lives than war, murder, and natural disasters combined each year, yet suicide prevention receives such poor funding. The goal is that, together, walkers can change the mental health conversation in our society and help end all of these tragic endings.“I want to thank the Ocean City School District for supporting Morgan and me on this journey and for giving us the venue to raise awareness. We are grateful to have the opportunity to celebrate Richelle, Maliha, and John. In addition, if our small contribution can prevent one lost life, then it will all be worth losing one night of sleep. One life lost is one too many.”- Suzanne MorganThis year, the Out of the Darkness National Walk takes place in Washington D.C. on June 17th for those who would like to join Sue and her daughter in remembering the lives lost in our community. You can also help Morgan raise money for her participation by donating to her fundraising page here:http://www.theovernight.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.participantDonations&participantID=22633“The Ocean City School District is proud to be supporting such an important cause, and one that helps not only our district, but far far beyond that. Best of luck to Sue and Morgan on their journey, from the fundraising, all the way to D.C. in June!”- Dr. Kathleen Taylor, Superintendent of Ocean City Schools
The best thing about winning Bakery Supplier of the Year last year was that I got to kiss Joanna Lumley – it’s something I’ve always wanted to do since I was in short trousers! Joking aside, winning the award was great exposure for Bells of Lazonby – the coverage we received in British Baker was read by everyone in the trade, including supermarket buyers who are our target customers. Just the other day, I was sat in front of a major buyer, who remarked on our success in the Baking Industry Awards. Buyers change regularly and the award is an excellent way to introduce the firm. It shows we’ve been reviewed by our peers and come up trumps. The cere-mony itself is a great night. I’ve been to lots of different awards nights and the Baking Industry Awards is definitely the best.”
Read Full Story A new grant from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) to the Wyss Institute at Harvard University aims to improve the survival of patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) by funding the development of a human Airway Chip model of a CF lung that can be used to study the bacterial infections and inflammation that often lead to deadly respiratory failure in patients with CF.“This tool will enable researchers to analyze the molecular mechanisms that underlie the lung’s response to pathogens in patients with CF, and provide a human-relevant model in which to test potential CF therapeutics,” said Wyss Founding Director Donald Ingber, who is also the Judah Folkman Professor of Vascular Biology at HMS and the Vascular Biology Program at Boston Children’s Hospital, as well as Professor of Bioengineering at Harvard SEAS.CF, caused by a recessive genetic mutation in the CFTR gene, dramatically shortens patients’ lifespans, largely due to chronic respiratory complications. The CFTR protein functions as an ion channel, helping to maintain a thin layer of water on the inner surface of the lung that allows tiny hairs called “cilia” on the lung cells to sweep back and forth, clearing mucus out of the airways. When the CFTR protein is disrupted, the water layer breaks down, preventing the cilia from clearing mucus and creating a breeding ground for bacteria that can become highly infectious and resist the body’s immune system.“Organ Chips allow us to create experimental conditions — including co-culturing human cells with living microbes — within an in vitro model that behaves like a human organ, making them the perfect vehicle for studying how bacterial pathogens interact with their hosts at the cellular level,” said Rachelle Prantil-Baun, a senior staff scientist at the Wyss Institute who is helping lead the CF Airway Chip project.The Wyss Institute has already developed Organ Chips mimicking various human organs, all of which display human organ-level functions. “Because all of the parameters in the Organ Chip system can be varied individually, it offers a novel ‘synthetic biology’ approach to study how cellular, molecular, chemical, and physical cues influence human tissue development and disease,” said Ratnakar Potla, a postdoctoral fellow at the Wyss Institute who is the technical lead of the CF Airway Chip project.This project will use a modified version of the Wyss’ Lung Small Airway Chip, with its epithelial channel lined with CFTR-deficient human airway cells from CF patients and its endothelial channel with healthy blood vessel cells (both provided by the CFF), and analyze the function of those organ models both with and without bacteria. The CF Airway Chips will also have integrated electrodes to quantify the movement of ions through the CFTR protein channels in real time.The team hopes to gain a better understanding of how pathogens influence CF airway structure and function, and identify novel ways to treat chronic inflammation in patients with CF.To learn more about cystic fibrosis or the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, please visit www.cff.org.
10 recommendations from credit union industry experts.by: Karen BankstonAs marketers collaborate with colleagues in IT, operations, finance, and other departments to launch, promote, and monitor mobile services, unique challenges and opportunities for positioning this delivery channel may arise along the way.See the opportunities. One of the marketer’s crucial roles in collaborating with colleagues from IT and operations on mobile services is to guide the discussion about brand impact. “Mobile channels may present opportunities to improve perceptions of your credit union’s technology capabilities,” says Kristiana Lockman, account supervisor with CUES Supplier member Weber Marketing Group, Seattle. “When your credit union offers new features, such as remote deposit and person-to-person mobile transfer, you can tell a different story about access and convenience. For the end user, that’s what mobile services are all about.”Leverage the launch. When marketers are involved in planning mobile services, they are better equipped to identify user experience and communication strategies in the run-up to their introduction and to influence the adoption rates of key audiences, Lockman notes.Make the most of your vendor relationships. Your mobile services provider may be able to provide both tactical and big-picture marketing support. “It’s important to understand your vendor’s design capabilities in order to ensure the credit union brand translates well in a new environment. There may be more options for customization than just changing a template color and throwing the logo up in the app store,” Lockman says. continue reading » 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle urged credit union stakeholders to maintain the momentum of support for the Senate’s bipartisan regulatory relief bill in an action alert issued Wednesday. In the video, Nussle said more work remains after CUNA’s Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation credit unions achieved several significant victories in 2017.“We’re close to another one of those right now, a very meaningful win, but to cross the finish line, we’re going to need some of your help,” Nussle said. “S. 2155 is a bipartisan regulatory relief package that would be enormously beneficial to credit unions…We need to make it very difficult for anyone in Congress to vote no on this bill.”Nussle urged credit union stakeholders to contact their Senators through CUNA’s Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation website, or go out to member via CUNA’s Member Activation Program. 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »
continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr A recent misstep by Wells Fargo is a warning shot to credit unions about the importance of diversifying their employees and board members.The financial services industry has long recognized the importance of diversity when recruiting and retaining employees, managers and directors, but many institutions have struggled to turn these intentions into concrete results. There are roughly just 170 Black credit union CEOs out of nearly 5,200 institutions.The death of George Floyd in police custody earlier this year has spurred a national conversation about racial inequality, and companies are now considering ways to better diversify their leadership ranks and address this issue. Experts warn that employers who fail to deftly address diversity, equity and inclusion could alienate consumers and hurt an institution’s reputation.“We all have to do a better job of showing up in different communities,” said Kelli Ellsworth Etchison, chief diversity officer at LAFCU in Lansing, Mich. “We aren’t advertising in the right places. We need to cast a wider net. We need to get out there.”

Press Release Harrisburg, PA – After restoring stability to Pennsylvania’s finances, Governor Tom Wolf today announced a $317 million deposit into the commonwealth’s Rainy Day Fund, the largest transfer in nearly two decades. The governor was joined by Pennsylvania Treasurer Joe Torsella and Lt. Gov. John Fetterman for the announcement at the Capitol.Following a $22 million deposit last year, the first in nearly 10 years, the state’s savings account will have a total balance of $340 million – over 1,000 times more than when the governor took office.“This contribution to the Rainy Day Fund is not just a sign that our economy is strong today, but that it will continue to grow because we are building the safety net we need for any future challenges,” said Gov. Wolf. “I am proud of the legislature for recognizing that responsible financial planning includes making good spending decisions alongside saving for the future.”“None of us has the luxury of knowing when the next economic downturn, or environmental crisis, or natural disaster will strike,” said Treasurer Torsella. “But we can take steps to better prepare ourselves to continue serving the people of this Commonwealth when it does and make sure that we don’t have to cut programs or raise revenue at the worst possible time. I commend Governor Wolf and the General Assembly for their continued commitment to shoring up the Rainy Day Fund and hope to see this continue far into the future.”In the wake of the 2008 economic downturn, the Rainy Day Fund was used to compensate for a decrease in state revenue. To pay bills, the commonwealth used more than $755 million from the fund, leaving just $60,000. Governor Wolf made it a priority to bring financial stability to the commonwealth after years of structural deficits so that state government is better prepared for the future.“Our reliance on the Rainy Day Fund during the Great Recession is even more of a reason to build the fund as high as we can during our good years,” said Gov. Wolf. “Because the future always has unknowns, the best plan is preparedness. A sufficient Rainy Day Fund ensures Pennsylvanians won’t have to cope with devastating cuts to programs like education if we face other economic bumps in the road.“This is the second of what I hope will become many significant contributions into our Rainy Day Fund.” SHARE Email Facebook Twitter July 09, 2019 Pennsylvania Makes Largest Rainy Day Fund Transfer in Nearly Two Decades
