Wilberforce University's Remarkable Second Quarter

Wilberforce University Students

Students Benefit from Donor Generosity

University Renaissance Gains Strength

WILBERFORCE, OHIO, USA, December 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wilberforce University is celebrating the end of the second quarter with important financial wins as the University experiences a Renaissance.

The university, which operates a fiscal year from July-June, received a $1.2M anonymous gift from a passionate donor, as well as financial support from celebrities Kanye West (for an undisclosed amount) and Tom Joyner, who allocated 4 scholarships to students through his Tom Joyner Foundation just this week. In addition, the University accepted a generous $400,000 donation to launch a matching gift campaign towards the year end appeal from John Miller, the Vice Chair of the Wilberforce Board of Trustees who currently serves as the CEO of Denny’s. Fundraising is making a comeback with a remarkable $4M committed from passionate donors in the 2nd quarter.

Stakeholder partnerships are also on the rise, which will dramatically affect admissions in the coming months. In fact, the University’s leadership has re-established strong ties with the AME Church by announcing the launch of a $500,000 scholarship program specifically for prospective students who are members of AME Churches around the nation. This partnership will create a direct pipeline to increase student admissions.

President Elfred Pinkard shared, “We are pleased with the collective work we have done to continue a path forward for a strong, vibrant and sustainable Wilberforce University. We are, at once, our past, present and future and we stand on a legacy of noteworthy achievement to build a future of high performance. As a University community, we are all committed to the hard work required for a transformed Wilberforce.” For more information on how you can support the Wilberforce Renaissance, please visit www.wilberforce.edu or www.wilberforceunite.com.

About Wilberforce
Wilberforce University is the nation’s oldest private, historically black University owned and operated by African Americans. Its roots trace back to its founding in 1856, a period of American history marred by the physical bondage of people of African descent. It was also a period when the education of African Americans was not only socially prohibited but was illegal. There was nothing about the prevailing social and cultural ethos of the era that suggested that African Americans might or should be taught or could learn. Yet a powerful idea assumed life and Wilberforce University was born. The founding of Wilberforce University represented a bold, audacious and visionary example of what could happen when men and women of goodwill transcended race and the prevailing social and cultural constructs and norms to pursue a noble purpose. Today Wilberforce University offers 25 academic programs to students of promise from marginalized communities. Learn more at www.wilberforce.edu.

Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) benefits from more women in the fields

Don’t Let Your Emotions Get the Best of You — Entrepreneurs hate to show weakness to themselves or to others.”

— Ashlee Ammons, Co-founder and President of Mixtroz

GREENWICH, CT, USA, December 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fotis Georgiadis, owner of the blog by his namesake, is a branding and image consultant specialist with a robust background and is a visionary interviewer. With a knack for pulling out a well rounded interview, not only covering cutting edge technologies and corporate directions, but also bringing out the personal side of the interviewee.

As a social media branding expert, Fotis Georgiadis is helping the paradigm shift of women not being a good fit for STEM, that is it a ‘mans world’. Two of the many advantages of social media are the wide distribution, along with easy accessibility to all, without regard to gender. In the case of STEM, this allows for a much larger population of women to be made aware of these fields and their need for diversity.

Dr. Vered Gigi, Vice President of Strategy and Business Development at CURE Pharmaceutical, was recently interviewed by Fotis Georgiadis about women in STEM. Some of the leadership lessons learned are excepted below:

What are your “5 Leadership Lessons I Learned From My Experience as a Woman in STEM” and why learned (Please share a story or example for each.)

That’s a very big question, and I will try to touch on one aspect at least with each of the below lessons:

Present sound and logical ideas.
I found that this approach builds respect with your team and your managers. No-one can fault you for a good, structured idea even if they disagree.

2. Strive for objectivity in hard decision-making, yet leverage your empathy in delivering them.

Growing in the STEM world, objectivity is inert to our mode of operation. Being a woman, we have a greater innate capacity for empathy than men. Hence, we should combine the two as we manage. The majority of the time, it’s not the actual decision that aggravates people but rather the delivery. As a result, we should harness the ability to relate to the person and situation to get the message across in a constructive fashion.

3. Uphold your team members and colleagues to the same standards, irrespective of their gender.

The “working mom” status is a good example. Don’t task your “working mom” employee with easier, smaller tasks because you think she might not meet deadlines due to other commitments (such as her children and home obligations). This approach will create both resentments in the team for unfair assignments of responsibilities and will be demotivating for the “working mom” as it may send the message that she is not capable of performing her duties. It’s a lose-lose situation.

4. Be comfortable with the unknown.

Unfortunately, a lot of women in STEM think that knowing all the answers gives them credibility and proves their worth. During my training as a scientist I learned that the unknown is greater than the known and this equation actually breeds creativity and collaboration. Being able to admit to a certain amount of uncertainty and reach out for help are strengths that lead to better answers.

5. Manage each team member individually according to their style.

In academia, because students are coming from all over the world, you are exposed to such diversity in cultures and thoughts that it magnifies how humans are different. In the leadership/management world, I translated this into how two people, for example, cannot be managed the same. As a leader you will do better in mentoring and growing your team if you adapt your style to their style and not vice versa even if the latter seems easier. You need to find what makes them tick and what form of feedback is constructive. The complete interview is available here.

Another woman who is helping expand ‘women in STEM’ is Ashlee Ammons, Co-founder and President of Mixtroz. Fotis Georgiadis’ interview with Ashlee Ammons furthers the cause by assisting with the image change of the industries. An excerpt from the interview is below:

What are your “5 Leadership Lessons I Learned From My Experience as a Woman in STEM” and why. (Please share a story or example for each.)

1. Always Be Respectful — It should go without saying but respect of others is key, especially in STEM where everyone has an opinion. I’ve learned to keep it simple — when I disagree with someone on something I defer to whoever has the greater expertise in the relevant area, keep calm and carry on.
2. Set Boundaries — I love to box and for me, boxing is non-negotiable me time. Unless I have a customer meeting I make sure I dress for the gym, so I never have an excuse for work to get in the way of my me time. Once I take the time to get the workout I need, I come home and get back to work.
3. Don’t Let Your Emotions Get the Best of You — Entrepreneurs hate to show weakness to themselves or to others. Being able to celebrate successes and overcome failures and have frank conversations without getting overly emotional is key. Every moment is an opportunity to focus and make the best of whatever situation comes your way. Read the rest of the interview here, including points 4 and 5.

Building a new ‘image’ for STEM that is inclusive of women is gaining momentum with the help of social media experts like Fotis Georgiadis. Benefits to companies and industries from social media work by Fotis Georgiadis are like ripples in a pond, far reaching, in all directions.

12 Week Entrepreneurial Course Successfully Graduates 16 Formerly impacted individuals

ReEntry Ventures Trenton 2019 Graduates

Class Rep Speech: Emmanuel Ross, Owner – AQ Lawn Care & Maintenance

Mayor Reed Gusciora with ReEntry Ventures Trenton 2019 Graduates

With 49,000 legal ways formerly incarcerated people are blocked from traditional employment, this course is a viable solution benefiting the entire community.

As a formerly incarcerated person, with very little prospects for employment, the Reentry Ventures course was just what I needed to begin to realize my dream of one day owning my own business”

12 Week Entrepreneurial Course Successfully Graduates 16 Formerly impacted individuals

On December 7, 2019 at Mercer County Community College in Trenton, NJ, 16 formerly impacted individuals graduated from an intense 12 week entrepreneurial workshop sponsored by Wells Fargo Bank and the African American Chamber of Commerce of NJ. This workshop gives those that are rejected from normal hiring practices the chance to learn entrepreneurial skills. After the grueling 12 weeks, these future business leaders submitted their start up plans. Three of the students were selected to present power point presentations on their companies and they did not disappoint. From the tech start up company Slap Mobile to the medical training start up company Global Sterilization they showed why these type of programs work. 

“As a formerly incarcerated person, with very little prospects for employment, the Reentry Ventures course was just what I needed to begin to realize my dream of one day owning my own business.” – Emmanuel Ross Owner, AQ Lawn Care & Maintenance

      Reentry Ventures was launched in 2016 in partnership with From the Block to the Boardroom and Open for Business Ventures. Both companies shared the goal of helping returning citizens through entrepreneurship, development workshops and online support networks. With successful pilot programs launched in Washington. D.C. and Petersburg, Va., Reentry Ventures has been leading the charge for change and how we look at owners of start up businesses. Today 346 inmates at the Bureau of Prisons in Washington, D.C. are learning entrepreneurial skills using tablets with the Reentry Ventures online course created by CJ Meenan and Tracey Syphax. Collectively these two organizations value the benefits of creating revenue generating opportunities for formerly impacted individuals. Reentry Ventures entrepreneur workshop, models a smart on crime initiative, saves taxpayers money by reducing public charges post incarceration and also contributes to developing safer, economically viable communities. As a formerly impacted individual, Tracey Syphax is now the Executive Director of From The Block to The Boardroom LLC, a published author and dedicated advocate for criminal justice reform and smart on crime initiatives. CJ Meenan is a 30 year educator who has written several books on entrepreneurship. 
 
“One of the most important needs for those reentering society is securing a job. However, legal and practical barriers (49,000 collateral consequences, to be exact), routinely prevent them from accessing employment that earns a living wage and more over, avoids poverty. As the number of people going to prison has risen in our country, so has the number of people leaving prison. Facing insurmountable challenges, the unfortunate likelihood is that many will end up back in prison which is why we created Reentry Ventures.” ~ Tracey Syphax

     Mr. Syphax made history in 2011 as the first African American and formerly incarcerated individual to be named “Entrepreneur of the year” by the then 51 year old Princeton Chamber of Commerce. In 2014 out of a unprecedented 900 nominees through out the country Mr. Syphax was 1 of 12 White House “Champions of Change” for his work in Reentry & Employment. Mr Syphax was named one of 25 Most Influential African Americans in the State of New Jersey in 2016 by the South Jersey Journal and on December 22, 2018 outgoing former Governor Chris Christie gave Mr. Syphax a full pardon of his decades old criminal record.

Peter J. Burns III Is Singled Out as Entrepreneurship Expert on National Radio

Peter J. Burns III

Peter J. Burns III

Peter J. Burns III, founder of Burns Funding, was interviewed in early December on one of iHeart Radio’s highly respected syndicated radio shows.

I am what one might call a serial start-up entrepreneur. That means I like to come up with the concept, put it into business form and see if I can sell it to somebody. This is how it evolves for me.”

— Peter J. Burns III

LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Peter J. Burns III, founder of Burns Funding – a provider of alternative funding resources, was interviewed in early December on one of iHeart Radio’s highly respected syndicated radio shows, where he discussed his prolific career as a serial startup entrepreneur.
Burns, who has started more than 150 businesses in his many decades as an entrepreneur, told Jack Heath, a radio talk show host on iHeart Radio's "Movers and Shakers Show," about his journey as an entrepreneur, beginning when he was seven years of age right up through his latest venture centering on the development of group homes for the elderly. The interview can be heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcZj3bt74z4&feature=youtu.be
Dr. Deborah Osgood, the co-host of the show, noted how Burns has demonstrated the ability to “recognize a need and solve a problem.” Burns went on to elaborate that he is what he likes to call “a serial start-up entrepreneur.
“That means I like to come up with the concept, put it into business form and see if I can sell it to somebody. This is how it evolves for me.
“It is also sort of like your radio show, where you start on a track and make adjustments along the way. It is like that with a business, where you make modifications and adjustments, too. You may well find that the business concept has changed dramatically from the original concept. Its really about the process, or what I like to call, baking the entrepreneurial cake. You have to have all the ingredients in the correct proportions to make it work.”
Burns went on to add that he is “like the puzzle master. I can see the end game, before there even is a game. I can see the trends. Several decades ago, I brought mopeds to the U.S., which was the forerunner to eScooters. Twelve years ago, I introduced co-working space for entrepreneurs in Phoenix. Had I stayed with either one of those, I might have a couple Unicorns on my hands. But that’s not what I do.”
At least not until now. Today, Burns has added the people and infrastructure around his entrepreneurial engine in hopes of staying with the great ideas a bit longer to maximize his return. “That way, I can have the best of both worlds, maintaining the ultimate business model, while continuing to identify new verticals in that business.”
About Burns Funding
Burns Funding is an emerging aggregator of non-traditional tools for securing growth capital. Four of those tools, in particular, stand out.
First, Burns Funding has institutionalized the bridge funding process to help clients reduce credit card debt and obtain a higher credit score. This allows Burns Funding clients to secure more capital at remarkably low interest rates, in some cases as low as zero percent for an introductory period of 12-21 months.
Second, Burns Funding has pioneered the use of Cost Segregation to allow commercial real estate owners to generate capital (in the form of tax savings) based on a little-known IRS allowance. A cost segregation study identifies aspects of a property that can be placed on accelerated depreciation life cycles, typically resulting in huge tax savings for eligible property owners.
Third, Burns Funding offers a market in shelf corporations, which are business entities that are no longer being used because their assets have been sold, typically through acquisition. However, these corporations are still viable because they have exemplary credit records. While these entities typically range in cost from $5,000 to $10,000, their clean record can help clients secure lines of credit for growth.
Fourth, Burns Funding offers a blanket loan program, where through its prodigious lender network it can help entrepreneurs and investors consolidate many smaller loans into one blanket loan, typically at a lower interest rate, with considerably less maintenance. There are also cash-out opportunities with these loans, providing access to growth capital.

Educator Dr. Myra L. Weiger to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

IRVINGTON, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A teacher must have imagination and creativity.

An expert in English and speech therapy, Dr. Myra B. Weiger spent 55 years as an educator.

“I cared very much about people and seeing them succeed,” says Dr. Weiger. “I loved teaching, I loved those kids. I've never forgotten them. I thought of them as my children, every one, wherever they came from.

Dr. Weiger began her professional career as an English teacher with the Irvington Board of Education in 1956, later joining Gary Public Schools as a speech therapist from 1956 to 1957 and teacher of the deaf from 1957 to 1959. Dr. Weiger served Kean University from 1964 for 49 years as a professor and Chair of the Dept. of Elementary, Middle, and Secondary Education and Educational Administration

“We need really humane people working who care, because it takes finding the right way to teach,” says Dr. Weiger. “You have to reach them in order to teach them, and each student can be reached in different ways. I didn't see my students as kids who were disabled. If you can get them laughing and show them you care, they can succeed.

Dr. Weiger says is very concerned about the current generation and sees real flaws in the new approach to educating students with special needs.

“The old classes used to have a mixture of everybody. We didn't segregate them so much. I never I felt I was responsible for improving the lives of the bright kids because they were working at it. They didn't even need me.”

“Everyone learned the material in their own way and contributed in their own way by working in groups. They would produce something among themselves, and the whole project would be beautiful, and they were friends with one another, whatever their ability level. They learned how to work together. Do we have that today? I'm hopeful that we can include the new things with some of the old things. To combine the best of both worlds would be wonderful.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Myra L. Weiger in an interview with Jim Masters on December 12th at 1pm EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

CCHR calling upon lawmakers to take action in light of recent reports highlighting a dramatic increase in the number of children on dangerous psychiatric drugs.

Parents are not being told the dangers associated with psychiatric drugs and as a result they may too easily give permission for a prescription and regret it much later.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today in the United States approximately 7.2 million children between the ages of 0 to 17 are using prescription psychiatric drugs, and almost half of them are on drugs due to being labeled with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). This epidemic of drugging children is not just occurring in the U.S. A recent report revealed that there has been a 500% increase in the number of children prescribed psychiatric drugs over the past decade in Ireland. [1]

The psychostimulant, methylphenidate, also known as Ritalin, is one of the drugs prescribed to children who have been labeled as ADHD and comes with such side effects as nervousness, agitation, anxiety as well as psychosis. [2] Methylphenidate is a Schedule II drug, which means the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) classifies it as having a high potential for abuse. At the same time, the DEA warns that methylphenidate produces many of the same effects as cocaine and that psychotic episodes and severe psychological addiction have all been associated with methylphenidate use. [3]

One Dayton, Ohio father recounted how his son had complained of having “dark thoughts” while on drugs for what was labeled as attention deficit hyperactivity. This same father buried his son in 2018 after the teen committed suicide within 3 weeks of having been prescribed an antidepressant with a black box warning. The father states that the “black box warning was never brought up” and “neither was the fact that the drug prescribed is not FDA-approved for patients younger than 25 and therefore was off-label.” [4]

Outraged at the significant number of children prescribed psychiatric drugs, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children, is calling upon lawmakers to take action and hold the psychiatrists prescribing these deadly drugs accountable.

“Parents are not being told the dangers associated with these drugs,” said Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida. “True informed consent is not being done and the psychiatrists doling out these drugs need to be held accountable when they violate the law.”

As part of a campaign to educate parents on their rights, CCHR hosts regular seminars and workshops on the mental health law, parental rights and the dangerous side effects of psychiatric drugs. To learn more or to reserve seats at the next seminar please call 727-442-8820.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org
