ILLINOIS TECH APPOINTS REED KROLOFF, FOUNDING PRINCIPAL OF JONES|KROLOFF, TO LEAD COLLEGE OF ARCHITECTURE

Reed Kroloff, Incoming Dean of IIT: College of Architecture

Illinois Institute of Technology

Former Director of Cranbrook Academy of Art and Art Museum, Dean of Tulane University School of Architecture, Editor-in-Chief of Architecture Magazine Joins IIT

CHICAGO, IL, UNITES STATES, June 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Illinois Institute of Technology today announced that architecture and academic thought leader Reed Kroloff will serve as the next Rowe Family Dean of its College of Architecture, stepping into a role first filled by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe more than 80 years ago.

“The university community is thrilled to welcome Reed and the unique voice and vision he will bring to Illinois Tech’s historic leadership in architecture,” said Peter Kilpatrick, Illinois Tech’s provost and senior vice president for academic affairs. “With more than 30 years of professional experience as an educator, critic, design practitioner, and consultant, he is the right person to guide our College of Architecture to a new level of eminence nationally and internationally.”

Currently, Kroloff is principal of jones|kroloff, an influential design-strategies firm. Previously, he served as director of the renowned Cranbrook Academy of Art and Art Museum in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, dean of the Tulane University School of Architecture in New Orleans during and after Hurricane Katrina, and editor-in-chief of Architecture magazine when it was the nation’s leading design publication.

“As an unapologetic modernist, I’m excited to be part of an institution that has been—and remains—so central to the history and practice of architecture,” said Kroloff. “There is no more significant laboratory for modern architecture than this school and its campus, nor a more auspicious moment to join Chicago’s only design- and tech-focused university than during the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus.”

Kroloff’s writing has been featured in a wide selection of books, magazines, journals, and catalogs, and he is a sought-after lecturer, moderator, panelist, and reviewer. He has appeared in broadcast series such as 10 That Changed America on PBS as well as Architecture School and Big Ideas for a Small Planet, both on the Sundance Channel. Regarded as an influential forecaster of emerging design talent, Kroloff has spoken at TED and the Aspen Design Conference. His work has been included at the Venice Biennale of Architecture, and he received the Katherine Edwards Gordon Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome.

At his current firm, Kroloff has worked with clients on some of the most significant architectural and design projects of the last 25 years, including, among many others, the Jose Vasconcelos National Library of Mexico, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial, the Logan Center at the University of Chicago, and the High Line in New York City. The aggregate value of projects on which jones|kroloff has consulted now exceeds $1 billion.

Kroloff holds a bachelor of arts from Yale University and a Master of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin.

A Benevolent Barber Academy is Born

Modern Male Barber Academy’s Nick Prosseda

Modern Male Barber Academy’s Nick Prosseda

Modern Male Barbershop's Nick Prosseda Opening a Barber Academy in Lansdale on June 23. New Vocational School Will Host Community Fundraisers.

PHILADELPHIA, PA, UNITED STATES, June 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nick Prosseda, the visionary behind four Modern Male Barbershops throughout Montgomery County, is opening his first Modern Male Barber Academy — a barber training facility which will open this June at 209 W. Main Street in Lansdale. Prosseda is planning a free grand opening celebration on Sunday, June 23rd from 12 to 6 p.m., which will feature entertainment, snacks and local spirits provided by Free Will Brewing Company and Faber Vodka.

The Modern Male Barber Academy — Prosseda's fifth location after opening his original barbershop in Sellersville, PA in 2008 — will open as a school with the aspiration of training 20 students through a 10 ½ month barber program in the first year. The program requires 1,250 hours of instruction and training during weekday hours, and customers willing to get a $10 haircut from a student that is overseen by Prosseda, while the students gain invaluable hands-on experience. There will be 14 chairs inside with classes offered during standard business hours. The program will cost $7,500 per person, and in-house financing and payment plans are available. There will also be a crossover program with a cosmetology license, which can be acquired in 7 ½ months.

"My goal is to put 300 new barbers in the local workforce over the next couple of years," said Prosseda, 36, who grew up in Southwest Philadelphia. "I’m never afraid to pick up a broom or do anything necessary to help people in need. I know my why. I know why I exist. I’m certain that I'm here to give back through barbering. I learned that at a very young age. I’m fully committed to helping the communities we serve."

Following a rough childhood, which included the passing of his father when Prosseda was only 10, he began his career by happenstance, going to work at Citrus Salon and Day Spa in Blue Bell, where he was trained by the Troilo family. "Lawrence and Anthoni Troilo showed me what how to carry myself as a man," he said. "They mentored me on how to cut hair, but more importantly, how to behave as a gentleman. I have been infatuated with barbering since a very young age, and that family gave me the introduction I needed." Prosseda remained there for six years, where he matured and saved enough money to open his own shop.

Prosseda’s first Modern Male Barbershop was profitable since Year 1, which is still operational today in Sellersville, PA. He hired his first barber within the first year and opened a second location in Plymouth Meeting in 2013. After walking away from his second shop due to a variety of what he calls “location-related issues,” Prosseda opened locations in Perkasie, Souderton and Quakertown. His shops are targeted towards men, but his barbers will cut the hair of anyone who desires. "Each of our locations has a team leader who leads our people, systems and processes," said Prosseda. "Their job is to hold their fellow barbers to accountability. Our core values are focused on being genuine gentleman and treating everyone with respect while striving to become pillars of the community. This is a big component of our training and something that will be a major focus at our new academy."

Today, Modern Male employs 27 barbers, and offers haircuts for $14 and up. Straight razor shaves are $22, and the shops offer many other services, including deluxe haircuts with multiples towels and a mini facial, as well as coloring and upscale beard treatments.

Working in what Prosseda calls “a recession-proof business" allows him to give back to the community and prioritize charitable initiatives. Since launching, Modern Male has offered complimentary haircuts clients who is unemployed or is in need of a haircut but can’t afford it. The company focuses on charity every day, which has fostered an incredibly loyal customer base while providing much needed resources to the communities that the shops serve.

Several times per year, each location hosts a "Cut-a-Thon," offering discount haircuts while showcasing positive messages to the youth and donating all of the funds collected to local schools and their sports teams, clubs and organizations. The company also recently partnered with Abington-Jefferson Health for their "Grow a Pair" program. The events include haircuts, live music and donated food & drinks, while team members encourage men to make appointments for cancer screening. 100% of all funds raised are donated to Abington-Jefferson Health for cancer research and screening.

"My dad lost his battle with cancer when I was young, and the symptoms leading up to his death could've been managed if he got checked," said Prosseda, who has three kids and is newly married. "One of my favorite aspects of our brand is watching young men experience quality time with their dads in our shops, so I'm taking every step possible to ensure that our customers get checked out.." The event is hosted once per year during Men's Health Awareness Month in September, and Prosseda is hoping for 200 people to attend this year's event, which he’ll host at his new academy. The company raised more than $10,000 for charities last year, and nearly $30,000 over the past three years.

Modern Male Barbershop also hosts a number of bachelor parties, and is in the process of outfitting a roving haircut bus to take to sporting events, street festivals and special events. Learn more about Nick Prosseda and his brand by visiting http://modernmalebarbershop.com.

SA Child Protection Worker Using Fabricated Employee Pass

Double-Identity Pass

Double-Identity Pass

A mother during visitation with her child is supervised by a social worker with an expired employee pass stuck over another identity with the same number.

Is the Department for Child Protection SA sending their social workers into Adelaide homes with fraudulent Employee Passes?”

— –a protective mother

MELBOURNE, VIC, AUSTRALIA, June 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A South Australian mother who is presently challenging the Child Protection Department for unwarrantedly placing her child in care, has found that the case social worker allowed someone using a fraudulent Identity pass (on a lanyard) into her home.

The young man was left to supervise, of what is insultingly called an “access” visit.

A day later the mother happened to find that he had left his ID pass behind – it had slipped down the side of a chair. She had not been introduced to him by name, so checked who had been the access worker that had come into her home.

On inspecting the pass, the mother noticed the printing did not seem right — so removed the card from the plastic sleeve. She peeled off the top ID easily, and lo and behold — below was another ID. Maybe they reuse the cards? But then she immediately noticed the many aberrations on the card/s.

The top and visible pass (belonging to “Person #1”) had expired on 22 November 2018, yet had the up to date Childrens' Act on the back. The concealed pass (“Person #2) had an expiry date of 08 September 2021, but had the outdated Act on the back.

Both visible and concealed passes had the IDENTICAL pass/card number.

On the Friday, the mother phoned the department and spoke to someone from general inquiries about the protocols for the Employment Passes. It would seem strange that a department with a $500 million-plus budget would recycle ID cards. She asked whether ID stickers are placed over existing cards. The woman said no, but she'd find out.

The woman soon rang back and said she spoke to Security Team and the people that make the cards. They informed her that,

– they do not reuse social workers cards,
– they do not reuse card numbers on Employee Passes.
– each social worker is assigned a number.
– each card has an expiry date. If an employee goes to a different department, the ID pass is handed back to their manager. That pass is put on hold for 6 months, in case the employee returns, when it can then be activated.
– if the person does not return, the card/pass is deactivated.

The employee pass in question appears to be fraudulent. The reason for this is unclear.

The mother then spoke with, and questioned Person #1 on June 11, 2019. He seemed to be unaware that his pass was lost. Only after two minutes did he say “Okay now I know who you are”. He and his supervisor sped to the house, very keen to retrieve the "badge". As it was night, the mother was not sure whether Person #1 was the man at her home before, "he seemed shorter."

The failings in the system affecting this mother are much greater than a double-printed and expired Employee Pass. That's only the tip of the iceberg. Her case has departmental failings in abundance.

Quedan sólo un par de semanas hasta el siguiente Eclipse solar total

La corona del sol durante el Eclipse solar total

Eclipse Solar Total del 2 de julio de 2019 w Times

Eclipse Solar Total del 2 de julio de 2019 w Times

personas que miran el sol

Todo lo que necesita saber sobre el eclipse total de sol en Sudamérica el 2 de julio de 2019.

Sobre la tierra, la nube se modera aún más por el terreno accidentado a lo largo de la Cordillera de los Andes que mejora y resta de la turbidez según la exposición a los vientos predominantes.”

— http://eclipsophile.com/total-solar-eclipse-july-2-2019/

BUENO AIRES, ARGENTINA, June 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — ¿Has presenciado el Gran Eclipse Americano el 21 de agosto de 2017? Si es así, es posible que ya estés esperando el próximo eclipse total de sol y la oportunidad de vislumbrar la corona del Sol durante unos minutos.

En menos de un mes, por primera vez desde el eclipse de América del Norte, se producirá un eclipse solar total en la Tierra y será visible desde Argentina, Chile y el Pacífico Sur.
Ver el Sol en el cielo oscuro rodeado por la luz de la corona es verdaderamente una experiencia alucinante. Una gran cantidad de viajeros internacionales vienen de los rincones más lejanos del mundo y se detienen en diferentes lugares para ver el evento y explorar los lugares de interés de los alrededores.

Es aún más increíble cómo la ciencia ahora puede predecir el tiempo y la duración de la fase de eclipse y totalidad a microsegundos.

¿En qué será diferente este eclipse?

En comparación con el Gran Eclipse Americano, la totalidad en Argentina promete ser un evento aún mayor. La fase de la totalidad, durante la cual la Luna bloquea completamente al Sol y solo la corona solar es visible, durará aproximadamente 2 minutos y 30 segundos.
Esta longitud de totalidad es similar al eclipse en los Estados Unidos en 2017. Sin embargo, en Argentina, la totalidad ocurrirá aproximadamente una hora antes de la puesta del sol, por lo que el Sol aparecerá bastante bajo en el cielo.

Con solo 12 ° de altura, la vista del eclipse total de sol promete ser bastante dramática y perfecta para los fotógrafos que esperan capturar imágenes sorprendentes del eclipse.

Tomar fotos desde lugares a lo largo de la ruta de la totalidad en Argentina le permitirá ubicar montañas, árboles o edificios, en el mismo marco que la corona del Sol, por lo que el próximo eclipse solar será una delicia para los fotógrafos profesionales y aficionados.

Las elevaciones bajas del Sol y la Luna crearán un efecto visual diferente. En momentos en que el eclipse total es bajo, es más fácil percibir la sombra oscura de la luna y es más fácil reconocer la forma de la sombra con mayor claridad, en comparación con mirar hacia arriba en el cielo.

¿Dónde encontrar cazadores de eclipse?

La mayoría de los espectadores a lo largo del camino de la totalidad observarán el eclipse desde los altos Andes en el este de Argentina, al norte de la provincia de San Juan. Los sitios elevados son lugares preferidos por los observadores, debido a las predicciones de buen clima y la duración de la fase de la totalidad más larga que se observará en tierra.

Cuando el eclipse solar total ocurre tan bajo como el del 2 de julio de 2019, crea sus desafíos para los observadores. El camino de la totalidad en todo el oeste de Argentina es montañoso, por lo que es importante encontrar un buen lugar de observación en el momento del eclipse, que no está en la sombra.

Merece la pena ver algunos mapas para aquellos que buscan un lugar ideal para observar el eclipse total de sol. Google Map de Xavier Jubier o shadow maps de Zeiler son buenas opciones. Los mapas de sombras funcionan para representar la cantidad de sombras en diferentes ubicaciones en el momento de la fase de totalidad.

Al usar estos mapas, los cazadores de eclipse pueden seleccionar una buena ubicación antes del eclipse total. Y lo que es más importante, no es aconsejable esperar para encontrar la ubicación hasta el día del eclipse debido a los limitados sistemas de carreteras en el área y, como resultado, el tráfico elevado.

¿Qué clima esperar en el día del eclipse?

En julio, será invierno en Argentina, por lo que una capa marina puede impedir una totalidad clara. En la costa, es probable que haya nubes, por lo que es importante elegir un buen lugar en algún lugar con anticipación.

Habrá movilidad limitada en el día del eclipse, por lo que el clima jugará un papel importante en las experiencias individuales de la totalidad. Ciertamente, los cazadores de eclipses esperan unos minutos de cielo sin nubes durante el eclipse.

Dr. Antoine Chevalier Treats Veterans For PTSD

While House Doctor For 20 Years

Dr. Antoine Chevalier is treating Veterans for Post-traumatic stress disorder resulting in very significant results proven with scientific documentation.

I am very honored to be treating our veterans and am excited about the results I have seen, we not only see a significant difference through the data, but a mental as well as a physical difference.”

— Dr. Antoine Chevalier

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, June 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Antoine Chevalier is treating Veterans for Post-traumatic stress disorder commonly referred to as (PTSD), resulting in very significant results that are proven with scientific documentation.

Facts about PTSD Operations Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Enduring Freedom (OEF): About 11-20 out of every 100 Veterans (or between 11-20%) who served in OIF or OEF have PTSD in a given year. Gulf War (Desert Storm): About 12 out of every 100 Gulf War Veterans (or 12%) have PTSD in a given year. Vietnam War: About 15 out of every 100 Vietnam Veterans (or 15%) were diagnosed with PTSD at the time of the most recent study in the late 1980s, the National Vietnam Veterans Readjustment Study (NVVRS). It is estimated that about 30 out of every 100 (or 30%) of Vietnam Veterans have had PTSD in their lifetime. According to recent statistics, 18 to 22 veterans die by suicide every day due to severe depression, chronic anxiety, sexual or other trauma, serious substance abuse and many other PTSD-related afflictions. Nonetheless, only 30 to 40% of veterans and military personnel diagnosed with severe mental or emotional distress seek professional help. Much of this has to do with the costliness of traditional therapy and the lack of access to military or civilian mental health providers. Over 540,000 Veterans Have Been Diagnosed With PTSD

Dr Chevalier has been a functional medicine practitioner at the White House since 2001. He has expanded his practice to include treatment of patients with Post-traumatic stress disorder, utilizing his new modality called “Neurological Integrative Therapy” which includes “Neurological Stimulation Therapy” using Dolphin Neurostim Devices. “Internal Integrative Therapy” which comprises of a form of cognitive therapy combined with an advanced form of Chi Gong healing modality.

Dr. Antoine Chevalier has been published multiple times in international peer reviewed scientific journals.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih..gov/pmc/articles/PMC5002218/

According to Dr. Chevalier “ I am very honored to be treating our veterans and am excited about the results I have seen, we not only see a significant difference through the data, but a mental as well as a physical difference in the performance of the patient. There is no reason that anyone should have to suffer with PTSD”. the following is a video of an interview of Dr. Chevalier and a veteran who was treated for PTSD.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1wxnQ0xf3Rw

COO Ridell Mackey states, “ We feel that it is extremely important to treat our veterans, who risked their lives for our freedom. There is an epidemic problem with the number of veterans who suffer with PTSD along with the shocking number of veterans who are committing suicide. The facts are that 22 veterans a day take their life, which is a higher number than lives lost in the battlefield. We are committed to changing that statistic.”

Dr. Chevalier is currently working with working through his foundation to treat the veterans as well as different veteran organizations and is currently organizing retreats where veterans receive treatment, work on their self esteem as well as learn skills to help them return to mainstream America and become positive and productive members of their communities.

Dr. Chevalier has been a featured speaker at many conferences as well as speaking at Harvard, Nasdaq, Mercedes Benz, Executive Office Building of the President of the United States of America.

Dr. Antoine Chevalier was nominated as Global Change Maker of the year by the Grandson of Gandhi. He is being endorsed and supported by his peers including but not limited to one of the top neurosurgical specialist in the world, Dr Atsuhisa Nakano MD, Ph.D who has performed more than 5000 brain surgeries at 100% success rate, including more than 300 extreme cases without any complications which include more than 32 hours of surgical time per case.

Dr. Chevalier has also received an endorsed from His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, Tenzin Gyatso

Ohio Business Week Receives Largest Private Donation In 30+ Years

Ohio Business Week Donation

Receipt of a $25,000 donation from Rob Moyer, CEO – Rexarc

Alumnus Rob Moyer Sends Nearly 60 High School Students to Ohio’s Premiere Summer Entrepreneurship Program

COLUMBUS, OHIO, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, the non-profit organization Ohio Business Week announces the receipt of a $25,000 donation from Rob Moyer, CEO of Rexarc (of West Alexandria, Ohio) and 2000 Ohio Business Week alumnus – the largest private donation ever given to the organization in its 30 year history. The donation, funded through Moyer’s family foundation, will help the organization sponsor nearly 60 high school students from across Ohio attend the intense week-long business program in Athens, Ohio.

"Ohio Business Week was one of those critical moments in my development as a business professional and community leader," said Rob Moyer, CEO of Rexarc and 2000 Ohio Business Week Alumnus. "It was at Ohio Business Week that I was given the opportunity to build a foundation that has helped set the course for my own life. As I grew older and became more established, I always wanted to give back to those organizations that paved the way forward. Ohio Business Week has always been at the top of that list as it not only provided me with the tools to understand the business world, it gave me a strong network of mentors and peers that I still rely on today."

Ohio Business Week offers eligible Ohio high school students a unique, hands-on experience with business and entrepreneurship. Hosted on the campus of Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, this exciting week-long summer program brings together a diverse group of young people and business professionals to translate textbook theories into “real world” business practices. This year’s program, set for July 21 – 27, 2019, is still accepting applications.

"Ohio Business Week is about finding the courage to take the first step," explains Cory Dippold, Executive Director of Ohio Business Week. "Unlike many summer programs, we pride ourselves in giving students a front row seat to the real world – this includes: learning from some of our best business leaders in the State; interacting with students from diverse backgrounds to build their own 'start-up;' experiencing life on a college campus; and encouraging students to bring the knowledge and fortitude to create a long-term economic impact in their local communities. These firsts tremendously help prepare our alumni for a bright future."

ABOUT OHIO BUSINESS WEEK:
Founded in 1988, the Ohio Business Week Foundation is a statewide non-profit 501(c) 3 organization that has provided nearly 7,000 high school students a unique, hands-on experience with business and entrepreneurship from each of Ohio’s 88 counties. The intensive week-long summer program brings motivated students together with business professionals from all over Ohio to experience entrepreneurship through the lens of our American free enterprise system.

FLAG DAY Exhibit of Utah History’s Most Significant Flag

Life Guard’s

Colonial Flag

Come to Colonial Flag for Flag Day!

Flag Day 2018

Enthusiasts of stories about Utah history & the Mormon Battalion will not want to miss this exhibit.

I believe our flag is more than just cloth and ink. It is a universally recognized symbol that stands for liberty, and freedom.”

— John Thune

SANDY, UTAH, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — When Eldred Gee Smith, the Patriarch Emeritus of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints died at the ripe old age of 106, a flag preserved by the descendants of Hyrum Smith passed down to his eldest son, E. Gary Smith, with the charge to safeguard the historic artifact.

Reportedly carried by the Mormon Battalion to California, the Life Guard’s flag was certainly carried by Utah Militia over a period of decades. It was last carried by Patriarch John Smith on horseback at the Pioneer Jubilee Parade on July 24th of 1897. Smith, the last standard bearer of the Life Guards, preserved the flag handing it down from eldest son to eldest son to its current custodian.

This rarely exhibited artifact will provide a great opportunity for those interested in western U.S. history. For many enthusiasts of Mormon Battalion’s and Utah Territory’s history, this is a "not to be missed exhibit".
The Life Guard Bear Flag can be viewed at Colonial Flag Company, located at 9390 S 300 W, Sandy, UT 84070 for a special Flag Day Celebration, June 14th from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. with a flag raising ceremony at 11:00 a.m.

This annual Colonial Flag Company Flag Day event features the raising of a huge 30 by 60 foot U.S. flag on a 120 foot flag pole that has become a landmark for travelers on Interstate 15 in South Salt Lake County. Hot dogs, soft drinks and prizes will add to the Flag Day celebration.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, June 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — There are apps that can help you get to where you’re going and apps that can help you learn new skills. Now, there’s an app designed to improve the cognitive development of children through reading.

Storied is now available on the App Store and the Play Store. The app (designed by Integral App Studio) is a compendium of hundreds of original stories penned by top children’s writers from across the globe. Whether parents want a fun bedtime story to read to their kids or a story that helps reinforce a lesson they are already trying to teach, Storied is there to help with a searchable database of content approved by child development specialists.

“Reading to kids for just five minutes a day has been scientifically shown to stimulate language and literacy centers of children’s brains,” says Integral App Studio CEO Jay Huffman. “It’s also been strongly suggested that children who are engaged in the reading process seem to benefit more strongly from the activity. Storied helps parents find new, fun and engaging content that will be relevant to the lessons they’re already trying to teach their kids. By bringing kids better stories, we’re helping parents raise better children.”

The app is designed with kids ages 3-11 in mind and is easy enough to use so that kids can read to themselves using their parents’ tablets or phones as they grow older. The app also has a customizable bookshelf so parents can create reading lists for their kids. Storied will also have an option for users to submit their stories to the platform for author credit. The app allows parents to purchase individual stories or have unlimited reading through monthly or annual subscriptions.

Jay Huffman is available for interviews about Storied. To schedule an interview, contact Jay at jay@integralappstudio.com.
