Colleagues remember founder of Marymount’s Peace Center as deeply passionate about bridging cultures and promoting intercultural understanding

RANCHO PALOS VERDES, CA, USA, January 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sally Lee Graetz Wu, a beloved Marymount California University professor of psychology for more than 30 years, died on January 8. She was 70.
Wu, who earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees at California State University, Long Beach, joined the Marymount community in 1981 as the first director of the Learning Center. She taught courses in child development, child psychology and culture, and served as chair of the Behavioral Sciences Department and English instructor before becoming a psychology professor.

“Sally was one of the ‘Moms of Marymount’ and embodied the RSHM (Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary) spirit of dedicated service to her students,” said Behavioral Sciences Chair and Psychology Professor David Draper.
She founded the Marymount PEACE Center whose mission was to educate students on issues related to national and international peace with a focus on intercultural programs.

“Her absolute passion and interest was to support our international students and to develop intercultural understanding,” said Professor Virginia Wade. “She was always working to bring understanding between cultures.”

Wu was a passionate believer in international education and taught in China, Taiwan and England.
“She spoke near fluent Mandarin and was especially adored by our Mandarin-speaking students, who would commonly come to her for a little bit of home at Marymount,” said Draper.

In her role as an academic advisor, Wu often worked with international students because of her understanding of their unique needs. She also worked closely with students who were interested in becoming teachers, said Wade. “Her advisor student reviews were always very high because she was deeply interested in their goals,” she said.
In the aftermath of the 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami, Wu led a PEACE Center project involving students, faculty and staff to create 1000 origami small paper cranes and then mail them to Japan.

“That was the typical type of activity that Sally would undertake to promote understanding between cultures and to support our Japanese students who were impacted by the tragedy,” said Wade.

Her honors included Faculty Educator of the Year, chosen by her fellow faculty members, and Student Teacher of the Year, chosen by her pupils.
Wu ended her 36-year Marymount career in 2018.

She leaves her husband Ray, daughter Katharine, and hundreds of former students, faculty and staff whose lives she touched.
Details of services have not been announced at this time.

La Scuola d’Italia, New York's International Italian School and IB World School Introduces a Cutting Edge New Program

La Scuola d’Italia “Guglielmo Marconi”

La Scuola d’Italia, is enjoying success with its recently launched new program, Interests & Careers Event Series 2020-21: Building Links for the Future.

I was truly impressed with the La Scuola students’ insightful and unique questions. There’s going to be some real international leaders coming from this school.”

— Matteo Torre, President Ferrari North America

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, January 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — La Scuola d’Italia, located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, is already enjoying success and recognition with its recently launched new program, Interests & Careers Event Series 2020-21: Building Links for the Future.

“This unique program supports our students’ personal goals beyond the high school and university levels by providing them direct access to international leaders and experts,” said Head of School, Maria Palandra, PhD.

President of Ferrari North America Matteo Torre praised the program, “I was truly impressed with the students’ insightful and unique questions. It was clear they were prepared, their ideas diligently researched. There’s going to be some real international leaders coming from this group.”

“What makes us so particularly proud of this program is that it is essentially designed by the students themselves. They told us what their current interests were, and also what they wanted their future careers to be,” said Palandra. “Architecture, automobile manufacturing, consumer products, sports management, and fashion were just some of their passions. The school community then invited extraordinarily accomplished people in those areas to speak directly with our students, answer their questions and the results have been truly amazing.”

Santo Versace, former President and founder of Gianni Versace, led an intimate Zoom chat where La Scuola d’Italia students asked questions about the iconic brand Versace, its history, and what advice he would give to students in finding their work interests and passions. “I fell in love with the La Scuola students and truly enjoyed speaking with them. I’m looking forward to seeing them again in the Spring and perhaps even one day in the international business world.”

After one talk, Tommaso Mattone, a senior, reflected, “I always thought that the world of work was something really far away in time, and that it was something that I would have to understand and take seriously in a distant future. And now I find myself in the last year of high-school, and I’m thinking about college preparation and how close I am getting to making important decisions in my life that will eventually lead to a world I thought to be far from me. Moderating the interview helped me to comprehend more. It was very helpful to talk with a person that has achieved such a high level of success. I’m really grateful that my school gave me this opportunity.”

About The International Baccalaureate Program, Global Management and Leadership, Interests & Careers Event Series 2020-21: Building Links for the Future

La Scuola d’Italia’s faculty asked its high school students what their future goals and career interests were. The school community then decided to invite extraordinarily accomplished people in those areas of interest to speak directly with the students. Meetings are conducted in a questions and answers format, either in English or Italian, according to the interviewee's preference. Before the talk, the students extensively research each guest, his/her background, expertise, and company. The analysis is further supported by a professor who teaches at university level and is La Scuola’s global education and career consultant. This academic and published author offers an extracurricular course for select high school students at the school, entitled Global Management and Leadership.

About La Scuola d’Italia

La Scuola d’Italia “Guglielmo Marconi” was founded in 1977 and is located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side in a beautiful 17,000 square foot mansion built in 1916 at 12 East 96th Street, just steps from Central Park. It is New York City’s first and only international Italian and American school and includes all grades pre-K through high school. La Scuola d’Italia is also the only school in the world that offers the combination of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and the Esame di Stato (the Italian Ministry of Education State Exam, which is recognized by universities in the United States and European Union).

“This channel is something we are proud of not only because of the content but also because of the production. The concepts are far-reaching and can be overwhelming. When we combine scripts that help a broad audience understand the concepts, it’s always a win. Add in our ability to develop video production that helps to deliver the serious scientific hypotheses with facts and then add-in interactive action and fantasy, we can engage and entertain,” said a representative for HOWEVER.

‘HOWEVER’ will help people learn the answers to questions they may have but are afraid to ask. Each and every video is created only using the latest information on each subject matter. It is fact-checked by a research assistant before going into the production phase. The content is design to inform audiences of how things work, how things happen, and likely scenarios of specific Earthly events.

InterestingEngineering.com did the same, reposting ‘HOWEVER’’s video on exploding a 1,000,000 Tsar bomb in the Challenger Deep on its website. As more and more people spend time at home during the 2020 crisis, ‘HOWEVER’s’ content is becoming more and more popular and important – especially for home-schooled students of all ages.

Dr. Kevin Dalby Discusses the Bright Future of Cancer Research and Reasons to be Optimistic

Kevin Dalby, UT Austin professor, comments on the future of cancer research and the reasons to be optimistic.

AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, January 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Kevin Dalby, UT Austin professor of chemical biology and medicinal chemistry, currently focuses his career advancements working on cancer drug discovery. He is presently immersing his studies into the mechanisms of cancer cell signaling to develop targeted therapeutics.

By understanding cancer cell signaling, Dr. Dalby works to improve diagnoses and utilize technological advances to develop targeted pharmaceuticals for different cancers. His research areas include biochemistry, cancer, cell biology, chemical biology, drug discovery & diagnostics, and enzymology.

“It is humbling to look back at scientific publications from just a few years ago and appreciate the progress made each year by all the researchers throughout the world. It is impossible to know where the next significant breakthroughs will be. However, one thing I can say with some certainty is that we will have access to a massively increased amount of scientific data, and to be successful, we will all have to adapt to use it effectively,” said Dr. Dalby during his Senior Level interview.

Dalby manifests high hopes for the future of cancer research, and he explains several reasons why others should be optimistic, too.

As cancer research advances, precision medicine will use personal history and genes to provide more people with personalized treatment.

There are significant strides made in immunotherapy when treatment uses the patient’s immune system to battle cancer. Major players in this area of growth include Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center researchers who have drastically assisted in developing two drugs that enhance the characteristics of T cells in the immune system to fight cancer back more fiercely. These two drugs, which have had great results, are categorized in immunotherapy treatments like checkpoint inhibitors. The drugs have even eliminated far-along stages of melanoma in some patients.

Another form of immunotherapy, called chimeric antigen receptor therapy (CAR) therapy, has boosted the future of cancer research and treatments. This immunotherapy strategy manipulates a patient’s T cells to seek out and attack cancer cells. T cells are gathered from the patient’s blood during this procedure and then go through a genetically engineered process. Before the T cells are infused back into the patient’s bloodstream, they are geared to identify specific cancer cell proteins.

In addition to research advancements, new epigenetic drugs may help avoid cancer cells' destruction and, instead, return them to normal. Scientists are also gaining further knowledge about genes and the avenues which lead to cancer spreading, otherwise known as metastasis.

About Kevin Dalby
Dr. Kevin Dalby is a chemical biology professor and medicinal chemistry professor currently working on cancer drug discovery.

Gina Pearce of Kristin’s Fund to be Featured on Close Up Radio

NEW HARTFORD, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Kristin Palumbo Longo was a free spirit whose bright smile and warm embrace brought comfort and joy to those around her. She was a mom of four, a cheerleading coach, registered nurse, and a caring daughter, sister and friend.

On September 28th, 2009, Kristin’s estranged husband entered their home and stabbed her 17 times, killing her and then himself. Her death sent shockwaves through their close-knit community.

Now, 11 years later, her sister, Gina Pearce, is honoring her sister’s legacy by speaking about her experience with devastation and grief caused by her sister’s domestic violence homicide, while sharing her story of survival and hope.

“After my sister died, I was devastated. But I was also compelled to research,” recalls her sister Gina Pearce. “I had to better understand how domestic violence happens, how it escalates and how to best prevent it so that other families didn’t suffer like ours.”

The more she dug in and learned, the more she knew she was being called to help others, says Gina.

“I wouldn't have predicted that my sister would be a victim of domestic violence homicide. I was desperately trying to find ways to ensure that this kind of preventable tragedy wouldn’t happen to other families.”

To do so, Gina founded Kristin’s Fund, a non-profit organization with a mission of creating safer communities through domestic violence education and prevention.

“We work to prevent domestic violence by educating kids and communities about healthy relationships. We want people to know how to react when unhealthy relationships and domestic violence touches their lives.”

Gina believes that educated communities are safer communities, educated families are safer families and educated children are safer children.

Launched in 2016, Kristin’s Fund has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for domestic violence awareness and prevention. A volunteer organization, the fund has since evolved to include a platform for Gina to share her story and create awareness outside of their community to educate as many people as possible to stop the cycle of abuse.

“Part of my healing process is and will continue to be talking about my sister and sharing what I know. I never planned to be an expert on domestic violence or grief, but now I have an obligation,” says Gina.

Close Up Radio will feature Gina Pearce in an interview with Jim Masters on January 26th at 12pm EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Global Safety First Offers Free N95 ReadiMask Samples to Industrial Hygienists & Fit Testers

John Schwind

Free Strapless N95 Respirator for Professionals

We had some surplus material from our Dept. of Defense production run, and I wanted to share it with those who need it.”

— John Schwind, president, Global Safety First

SEA GIRT, NJ, UNITED STATES, January 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Global Safety First (GSF) is giving away free samples of certified N95 ReadiMask respirators to industrial hygienists and fit test professionals.

"I am making this offer because I want to introduce industrial hygienists and fit test professionals to the ReadiMask," said GSF President John Schwind, co-inventor of the ReadiMask. "It is the most innovative respirator in decades. It is so unique, you have to try it to appreciate it."

When asked how he could give away free samples when most manufacturers are out of stock and raising prices, Schwind said, "We had some surplus material from our Dept. of Defense production run, and I wanted to share it with those who need it."

If you are a professional hygienist or make decisions about respirators for your organization, or if you conduct fit tests, visit ReadiMask at https://readimask.com/industrial-hygienist/ to obtain your free samples. There is no obligation for the samples, no credit card required, and the shipping is free. We suggest ordering your free samples before we exhaust our supply.

Satisfied clients of ReadiMask include the Department of Justice, Avery Denison Medical, Hackensack Meridian Health, Boston Medical, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank and the U.S. Coast Guard.

The ReadiMask, manufactured in the United States, comes with a hypoallergenic medical adhesive that seals to the face to prevent air leaks and better protect the wearer. That means there are no straps and no nose clip so that it won't fog glasses. It's also cooler than traditional N95 masks. Most users claim it is easier for people to hear them speak when they wear a ReadiMask versus other types of respirators.

Global Safety First, LLC, (GSF) was founded in early 2015 to improve respiratory protection equipment for professionals and the general public. GSF develops, manufactures, and markets unique disposable respirators (ReadiMask) designed to substantially protect people from modern-day threats.

Unemployed image by CBS News

We must invest in local nonprofit organizations focused on providing youth with the necessary training to be competitive in the tight workforce marketplace.

BRONX, NY, UNITED STATES, January 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Think Tank at The Thinkubator under the leadership of Dr. Lessie Branch released a policy brief on post Covid-19 workforce development strategies. The report explores the devastating impact Covid-19 has on unemployment and explores strategies that will aid in the economic recovery of communities like the Bronx. The report explores work-based learning programs and innovations crafted by HERE To HERE and The Thinkubator local nonprofit organizations that connect youth to training and employment.

Post Covid-19 will require government intervention that invest in communities and support training programs that directly connect youth to employment and/or educational opportunities. We must invest in local nonprofit organizations focused on providing youth with the necessary training to be competitive in the workforce marketplace. “Our recovery will be predicated on our ability to garner financial resources to invest in workforce training and retooling programs that directly connect program participants to employers and employment” says Dr. Edward Summers, President and CEO, The Thinkubator. Workforce development organizations such as CareerWise New York and The Thinkubator work-based learning programs are critical to skills development and the connection to employment.

The Think Tank at The Thinkubator puts forth five policy prescriptions that must be examined: 1) Increase resource capacity of Bronx nonprofits; 2) Targeted Universalism: Consider Race and Gender Vulnerabilities in the Policy Response; 3) Modify Public Works Projects for the Bronx Community; 4) Broadband for All; and 5) Align Direct Partnership between Nonprofits and Sector’s Rehiring. Dr. Lessie Branch, Director of The Think Tank states “"Universal policy solutions do not go far enough to the margins to provide benefits for individuals at the margins. Targeted universalism is a justice oriented policy framework that acknowledges rather than ignores our connection to one another and that we are not all similarly situated."

More about The Think Tank at The Thinkubator:

The Think Tank at The Thinkubator, launched by Dr. Lessie Branch, Associate Professor of Business at Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY), serves as a hub for rigorous academic, scholarly, and professional research that supports the documentation and evaluation of The Thinkubator activities, seeks to understand The Bronx as a contested, complex urban form, and addresses narratives of marginalized – Black, Brown, Female, and low-income communities.
